    Kathy Folden - As God Sees Me

If my moon image is rotated 90 degrees left you will see an eagle.  It forms my forehead, face, neck and ear. 

On my neck is the image of a young lion wearing a crown. 

It is my belief the two images in the crown are the two witnesses of Revelation. 

Sometimes they are referred to as the two olive branches or the two candlesticks beside the throne of God.

[These verses are a blessing from God to me.  When I was drawing My Lord's portrait, His skin around the eyes turned a golden color and I sensed He was looking directly at me through the drawn eyes.  I burst into tears of shame and wanted to cover my face with my hands and not let Him see me and all my imperfections.  Since then, I have wondered how could I possibly stand upright in front of Him and not sink into a puddle of shame.  Here is my answer from Him.  Oh, how I love Yeshua!]

"In hell where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side.  So he called to him, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.'

"But Abraham replied, 'Son, remember in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony.  And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.'

"He answered, 'Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father's house, for I have 5 brothers.  Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.'

"Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the prophets.  Let them listen to them.'

"'No, father Abraham,' he said, 'but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.'

"He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.'"

Psalm 36:1-4  ...concerning the sinfulness of the wicked.

be walked over."

Rev 3:7-13  To the angel of The Church in Philadelphia write:

     "These are the words of Him who is Holy and True, Who holds the key of David.  What He opens, no one can shut, and what He shuts, no one can open.

     "I know your deeds.  See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.  I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept My word and have not denied My Name.  I will make those who are of the synagogue of satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars -- I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 

     "Since you have kept My command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.

     "I am coming soon.  Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.  Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in The Temple of My God.  Never again will he leave it.  I will write on him The Name of My God and the name of The City of My God, The New Jerusalem, which is coming down out of Heaven from My God.  And I will also write on him My new Name.

     "He who has an ear, let him hear what The Spirit says to The Churches".

1 Peter 5:5-11  Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older.  All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another.  Because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

Be self-controlled and alert.  Your enemy, the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

And The God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.  To Him is the power forever and ever.  Amen.

It is my sincerely held belief God wishes to anoint Eric Marshall Nyberg into His service as a 'mighty man' of God.

The following is God's anointing ceremony for Eric: 

Oil of Anointing Ceremony:  You [God] who are above all that is spoken and all that is named...I commit into Your hands Your servant Eric. 

In his weakness, be to him a strength.  In his not knowing, be to him his assurance.  Cause him to walk in the footsteps You've prepared beforehand.  Pour out upon him The Spirit of Your anointing that he might fulfill Your charge.  Guide him.  Protect him.  Prepare his hands for battle.  Bless and keep him.  Cause The Light of Your Countenance to shine upon him.  Spread over his life The Tabernacle of Your Glory and shelter him in the covering of Your Grace. 

In The Name of The Anointed One, The Glory of Israel, The Light of The World."

[The anointing ceremony is not complete or in effect until the anointing oil is poured on the head of the candidate.  The candidate will mess up less if you also undergo a deliverence session.]

He causes me to lie down in green pastures.  He leads me beside the still waters.

He restores my soul.  He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Name's sake.

Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me.  Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  You anoint my head with oil.  My cup runs over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of The Lordforever.

Over the weekend I read and studied the book "When Pigs Move In" by Don Dickerman

I recommend that you read this book and give it due respect. 

The book is about demon possession and what can open the door for them to enter and interfere in a person's life.

As explained in his book, Christians are prime targets for possession.  Most people believe Christians can't have demons in them because Christ lives inside us.  Don Dickerman explains this.

He only performs deliverances on Christians.  It would be futile to drive demons from anyone who rejects Christ, because, as Christ explained, If Christ doesn't fill the empty place left when the demon leaves, he will come back with 7 more demons even worse than the first demon.

You can see images of real demons on this website, www.giveGodlove.com under 'daily demon'.  Demon images are especially many in the smoke of destruction.

See today's blog entry for youtube links.

Excerpts from Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado:

pg. 5+  'No one else discuses God.  David discusses no one else but God.'

          'The people knew his taunts, demands, size and strut.  They have majored in Goliath. David majors in God.'

          '...but I come to you in The Name of The Lord of Hosts, The God of the armies of Israel.'

'Note the plural noun.  Armies of Israel.  Armies?  The common observer sees only one army of Israel.  Not David.  He sees the Allies on D-day.  Platoons of angels and infantries of saints, the weapons of the wind and the forces of the earth...

'David sees the armies of God.  And because he does, David hurries and runs toward the army to meet the philistine.'

'When was the last time you did the same?  How long since you ran toward your challenge?  We tend to retreat, duck behind a desk of work...'

'Try a different tack.  Rush your giant with a God-saturated soul.'

'Giant of depression?  It may take a lifetime, but you won't conquer me.  Giant of alcohol, bigotry, child abuse, insecurity...you're going down.  How long since you loaded your sling and took a swing at your giant?

'One might read David's story and wonder what God saw in him.  The fellow fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered.  He stared down Goliath but ogled Bathsheba; defied God mockers in the valley, yet joined them in the wilderness.  An Eagle Scout one day.  Chumming with the mafia the next.  He could lead armies but couldn't manage a family.  Raging David.  Weeping David.  Bloodthirsty.  God hungry.  Eight wives. One God.'

'A man after God's own heart?

Charles Spurgeon's answer to why we had to sin and fall from Eden:

"Had adam never sinned...we would be unfallen beings...but we would be in constant jeopardy because at any moment Adam might transgress and bring us down with him...perpetual state of probation, because the original covenant had no time limit...no expiration date.

You and I therefore would be holding our happiness by a very precarious tenure," writes Spurgeon.  "We could never glory in absolute security...as we now do in Christ [Yeshua]."

However, as we have now lost everything in Adam, and the uncertain tenure has come to an end, our lease of Eden and its joys has altogether expired.  But we that believe have obtained an inheritance which we hold by an indisputable and never-failing title which satan himself cannot dispute...

The Lord [Yeshua] Christ has finished the work by which His people are saved, and that work has been certified by His resurrection from the dead.

There are no ifs in the covenant now...No chances of failure caused by unfinished conditions can be found in it...Thus we have obtained a surer standing than we could have had under the first Adam

For I called, but you did not answer.  I spoke, but you did not listen.  You did evil in My sight and chose what displeases Me.

1 John 3:17-23  If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?  Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in His presence:

If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and He knows everything.

Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from Him anything we ask, because we keep His commands and do what pleases Him.

And this is His command: to believe in The Name of His Son, Yeshua Christ, and to love one another (family of Christ) as He commanded us.

 "This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them.  This is what will happen in that day:

When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord.  In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.  

The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence.

The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.  

I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 

 I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed.  I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him.  

And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations.

Then they will know that I am The Lord."
