NEGLECT OF SPIRITUAL LEADERS AND ISSUES CAUSE GREAT SUFFERING

By: Apostle Steve Lyston

It is critical for us to find out or to know the reasons or causes for the negative occurrences taking place globally. The number one cause for much of these issues and problems globally is the neglect of Spiritual things and Spiritual leaders. The Church, which is God’s representative on the earth, has a prophetic mandate to be the salt and the light within the earth. The Church has a mandate to deal with the Spiritual issues affecting the world and the continual restoration of mankind. The Church is the unit of people mandated to carry out certain roles, offerings and certain sacrifices within the earth such as Praises, Righteous Acts, Giving, Evangelism, Sacrifice of Love, Prayer. (Hebrews 13: 15, Ephesians 5: 1 – 2, Acts 6 and Acts 10 -14). Furthermore, the Church must carry out Humanitarian Activities and the ministry of reconciliation for certain blessings to take place.

 

There was a time when individuals, businesses and the political sector would give into the Church to carry out the mandate that God has given; and many would give from the blessings they received from God. There were various feasts done throughout the year, especially the three (3) main feasts – Tishrei, Pentecost and Atonement – where people would come and give based on their blessings. God also set the Sabbath aside – whether Saturday or Sunday – where the people would bring their Tithes and Offerings to build the House of God. (Malachi3; 1 Corinthians 16: 2) These days, many neglect to do this and would rather give to the occult, financially support immorality and other lewd activities taking place worldwide. Even the saints have abandoned giving to God’s House and taking care of their Spiritual Leaders. (I Corinthians 9: 11; Galatians 6: 6; I Timothy 5: 17) Many true Pastors have walked away from ministry. Some are hurt because of the betrayals and poor treatment they have received. We have seen much ingratitude being shown and sadly, once individuals and families have received the blessings and benefits after being poured into by their Spiritual leaders, many of them neglect, curse and walk away from the ones who labored with and helped them.

Regardless of how brilliant a person may be or how successful an organization is, certain blessings can only come about for them when it is released by a man or woman of God.

Many criticize leaders about the houses and vehicles they have when they are enjoying their blessings from God, but there is no other profession more qualified to receive the blessings than a Spiritual person who is genuinely serving and representing God. It is interesting that such persons have no problems if a Pimp, drug dealer, movie star, musician or any other profession enjoys these things. Which other profession goes to God on behalf of the people, sometimes sacrificing their own familial relationships, and counsels with them, stand in the gap for them, engage in the processes of healing and deliverance, for them? Can they call the drug dealers, pimps, movie stars and other people they adore and follow to do that for them when they need a breakthrough?

The neglect of Spiritual things and Spiritual leaders have gone up to God and unless we find those leaders like Ezra, Nehemiah, Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 31), and unless we restore the priestly order and call back the good priests into full time ministry, where their families can be taken care of and they can focus on rebuilding, restoration and execute their pastoral functions, then we are going to be seeing continued suffering and shaking throughout the earth.

Haggai 1: 3 – 11 says, “Then the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet, saying, “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple[a] to lie in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways! “You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.” Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord. “You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the Lord of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house. Therefore the heavens above you withhold the dew, and the earth withholds its fruit. For I called for a drought on the land and the mountains, on the grain and the new wine and the oil, on whatever the ground brings forth, on men and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”

Each person reading this, begin to take care of your Pastors. As an Apostle, I have seen the suffering of many good Pastors and the kind of treatment they have received and this is not good for neither the individuals nor the community. Many may say that there are too many churches in a particular area. But as one disappears, so will your business disappear and darkness will begin to take over the community. You will see more floods and disasters. So when you hold back your hand from giving into the house and Kingdom of God, you fail to hold up the hand of your leaders and so you will lose the battle. (Exodus 17: 8 – 13)

THE TRUTH ABOUT STORMS

 

 

Jonah 1: 4 – 5 says, “But the Lord sent out a great wind on the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship was about to be broken up.  Then the mariners were afraid; and every man cried out to his god, and threw the cargo that was in the ship into the sea, to lighten the load.[a] But Jonah had gone down into the lowest parts of the ship, had lain down, and was fast asleep.”

 

There are many debates about storms, hurricanes etc.  According to the Webster’s New College Dictionary, a “tempest” is “a violent storm with high winds, especially one accompanied by rain, hail or snow.

 

Storms come in many ways.  There are storms of life that God speaks to us about in Psalm 46 and He lets us know that He is ever present in our time of trouble.  We have storms to test the measure of our faith and Jesus said in the Scriptures “O ye of little faith…”

 

Storms cleanse the earth, purge, removes old things and brings new things to the forefront.  It uproots trees and even blows seeds to new places.  Storms can even create jobs for the poor.  Storms reveal the hearts of those in leadership and whether or not they truly care for the people and are willing to offer assistance in times of disaster.

 

There are contrary winds which oppose God’s will for your life.  We see it in the Scriptures when the disciples were crossing over and there were contrary winds that Jesus rebuked.

 

In Matthew 14: 22 – 33 Jesus knew that the contrary wind was coming and furthermore He wanted to see if they were ready to go to the next level in the supernatural.  He also wanted to show His humanity and reveal His Deity and power over the elements which He created.  (Read Luke 8: 35; Mark 4: 39)

 

Storms also promote some and bring others to repentance.  There are many Scriptures which tell us that God rides on the very wind.  God speaks through nature and each person may receive a different message.   Storms change priorities, mandates and motives.  STORMS ALSO SPEAK TO US ABOUT APOCALYPTIC HAPPENINGS AND THINGS TO COME.  (Luke 21; Revelation 6 – which are coming).

 

So each person has a message.  But what stood out to me is Jonah 1: 4 where God sent a great wind on the sea – a mighty tempest.  This could possibly be a category 5 hurricane because it threatened to break up a ship.  This came about because of Jonah’s disobedience because Jonah was running from the presence of God.  He did not want to go and preach repentance to the people to whom God wanted to show mercy.  So the question is, could it be that storms are coming up because of the disobedience of some of God’s people who no longer want to preach repentance and have gone in a different direction doing their own thing?  In the midst of all that Jonah was fast asleep in the midst of the boatful of people worshipping other gods.  Jonah didn’t even want to identify himself as a prophet of God until his life was threatened and he had no choice.  Is that what it will take for the prophets of God to do what God says?  In all of it, Jonah asked to be thrown overboard because He knew that it was him and his disobedience that brought on the storm.  It is after that we see the transformation take place with those aboard the ship.  So the Holy Spirit said to me – the storm preached the gospel that Jonah would not!  So when men in different nations throughout the globe stop preaching the gospel and compromise, He will use nature to preach just as in the days of Noah.  And it will not just threaten the lives of the saved but also the unsaved.  We will see many disasters globally unless we preach the gospel.

 

Those governments and organizations who refuse to change direction and refuse to help the poor the fatherless and the widow, and refuse to embrace Godly environment and principles will end up ‘shipwrecked’ and will spend far more than they bargained for to recover from natural disasters.

 

When we fail to listen to God’s true servants, then we will have to listen to the wind and nature that don’t need permission, regulations or visas and cannot be sanctioned, regulated or zoned.

NEW DECREE:  GET READY FOR YOUR BREAKTHROUGH!

 

NEW DECREE:  GET READY FOR YOUR BREAKTHROUGH!

 

Daniel 6: 24 – 28 says,

 

“And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions—them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den. Then King Darius wrote:

‘To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you.  I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.  For He is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end. He delivers and rescues, And He works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth, Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.  So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.'”

 

Many of you that were treated unjustly and unjust decrees were made over you because of your faith and belief in God; false accusations were made regarding you because of your purpose, your excellence of spirit and your determination.  There were conspiracies that came against you to pull you down and to block you from advancing any further.  But God says, the same den that you were thrown in – the enemy is about to be thrown in it and new decrees are about to be made to promote and restore you.   What the enemy thought would destroy you will promote you.  The enemy thought that your fate was sealed, but your faith is in God.  God has sent out His angels to rescue and release you – they will remove the stone from the den’s mouth and release you.  There is no earthly law or decree that can hinder you.  Watch the scattering of counselors and advisors!

 

Prayer and Devotion shall return to places from which it was missing.  Many politicians will again embrace the true and living God!  You will find favor with the King of kings and with earthly kings.  Get ready to receive and rejoice for your deliverance.  For the next 40 days, PRAISE HIM!  Divine Favor and Grace!

VORTEX EMERGING! – THE WORD OF THE LORD

 

THE WORD OF THE LORD

 

VORTEX EMERGING!

On Saturday, August 26, 2017 the Lord spoke and said that the globe and the Church should study and prepare for the Vortex!  A Vortex is “a mass of fluid (such as a liquid) with a whirling or circular motion that tends to form a cavity or vacuum in the center of the circle and to draw toward this cavity or vacuum bodies subject to its action; (especially whirlpool/tornado/whirlwind, cyclone, black-hole, swirl and so on).

 

There are many instances spiritually where scripture mentions the whirlwind which is in fact a kind of vortex.

Jeremiah 25: 32 says, “Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Behold, disaster shall go forth From nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the farthest parts of the earth.”

Jeremiah 30: 23 also says, “Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord Goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind; it will fall violently on the head of the wicked” and,

Ezekiel 1: 4 tells us “Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.”

There are many other instances even in 2 Kings 2, where we see that suddenly a chariot of fire came and the Prophet Elijah was caught up in a whirlwind which signifies many things including:

 

  • A generational shift
  • The emerging of the Elijah company
  • Spiritual and Physical Promotion
  • Transfer of Mantles and
  • Wealth Transfer to the faithful generation

Job 37: 9 says: “From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind, and cold from the scattering winds of the north.”

We need to look at 2 things:

  • Continents within the North and South
  • States within the north and south in the USA

Continents

 North                                                 South

North America                                  South America

Canada                                               Lower Africa

Upper Africa                                     Australia

Europe                                               Antarctica

Asia

Interestingly the ice is melting rapidly in Antarctica which means water levels are rising.

The following are those states in the USA that are deemed to be the Nothern and Southern States according to Britannica.com which cites this as the basis on which the states are referred to as Northern and Southern States, “The North, region, northern United States, historically identified as the free states that opposed slavery and the Confederacy during the American Civil War.”

 

North                                     South

 

North Dakota                        West Virginia

South Dakota                        Maryland

Nebraska                               Texas

Minnesota                             Delaware

Iowa                                       Virginia

Wisconsin                              Florida

Indiana                                   Kentucky

Michigan                               Oklahoma

Ohio                                       Arkansas

Pennsylvania                                    Louisiana

New York                              Mississippi

Vermont                                Alabama

New Hampshire                   Tennessee

Massachusetts                      Georgia

Connecticut                           North Carolina

Rhode Island                        South Carolina

Maine

New Jersey

Kansas

Missouri

Illinois

The Vortex is the reason there is such a divide right now within the United States because many unresolved and deep-seated issues still remain and they are resurfacing now because God is going to deal with it.  But we have to know that it can only be dealt with spiritually.

So we are going to see similar significant stirrings in the political, civil, business, religious, spiritual, and financial arenas.  We have to pray for an awakening and a revival because that is the only way healing can take place.

 

The Vortex in the Justice System

Job 38:1

Job 40: 6

Psalm 58: 8 – 10

There will be a cleansing in the Justice System, particularly among judges.  Justice is symbolically pictured as a balance of scales weighing Justice impartially to bring peace.    However, the earthly judges have repeatedly tipped the scales to cause or insight violence, and now the Chief Judge – the Most High of the Highest Supreme Court is about to hold earthly judges accountable for their actions in the justice system.

 

The Vortex in the Business and Financial Sectors

Psalm 77: 18 – 20

Proverbs 1: 27

Proverbs 10: 25

Isaiah 21: 1

Isaiah 17: 1 – 4

Isaiah 40: 23 – 24

 

There will be a shaking in business – distress and anguish.  Creditors and international lenders, the Tax Department, Communications, Pharmaceuticals, Banks and Healthcare will experience great shaking so that the poor will be able to rise.

 

There will be judgement on the Gaming Control Board and some lobby groups as well as those Non-profit that say they are there to help the poor but are simply extracting from both ends of the spectrum for themselves.

The kind of shaking that is coming, no man will be able to have control over what will be going on.  No one can stop it.

 

The Atmospheric Vortex

We will continue to see flooding and other disasters occurring.  But while it may be disaster for some it will be great blessings for others and opportunities will be created. Sometimes, jobs are created, new sources of energy found, inventions are realized in the midst of the greatest disasters.

We have seen many of the poor experience foreclosure on their homes.  They were never given a chance to save their homes.  The vortex that is emerging will bring a switch where the rich will be the ones losing their properties.  It will be blessing for the poor and judgement on the unjust.  This will also bring many back to the Lord and bring many nations to Him.

 

Vortex in the Body of Christ

A whirlwind will blow which will separate the false from the true – a purging of the hirelings, wolves, false teachers, false shepherds, money changers and merchandizers from the Church; and a moving out of those who pull people to themselves rather than leading them to Christ and Truth to prepare His people for the rapture.  This vortex will also cause many to see the supernatural unfold.  For example, a vortex transported Philip from one place to the other.  Acts 8: 39 – 40 says, “Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.  But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea.”

 

See also:

I Kings 18: 12

2 Kings 2: 11 – 12

John 6: 21

Genesis 5: 24

Furthermore, among the true ones, there will be promotion at and to all levels and of all kinds.

God is the one allowing the stir through the vortex to bring out His will and purpose.  Things that were buried will be uprooted and exposed.

While the enemy can cause a vortex also, as we see in the book of Exodus between Moses and Pharaoh, let us rise up as servants of God, that God’s true will and purpose will be accomplished in the earth, so that hearts will be changed and souls will be saved.  Leaders – religious and political will walk in proper alignment so that communities will be transformed and there will be equality in distribution of resources, and in the education system to allow opportunities for ALL.   The leaders will have Godly motives not their motives.

Married People Should Have More Sex

 

God has given us the gift of sex for procreation, emotional joy and physical fulfillment of sexual union. Sexual union is reserved for married people and must be enjoyed regularly in that union so that couples can also avoid temptation. It must be maintained in wholeness through faithfulness and purity of heart, discipline of the eyes and consecration of the body (1 Corinthians 7: 3-5; Proverbs 5:15-20; Job 31:1; Genesis 2:24).

It is critical for Christians to pray more for each married couple to have a healthy sexual life, especially in light of all the attacks that are launched daily against married couples and their sexual lives – including the promotion and sale of artificial penises and vaginas, robots, as well as masturbation and prostitution.

Let it be clear that marriage is consent for having sex, and it is scriptural. Withholding sex will only bring more divorces, more masturbation and more rape. Ultimately, it will stop Godly offspring from coming forth. It is an attack on the Church and marriages, and the enemy is after the mystery of Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:32).

Change Strategy

The Church has to change its strategy. Instead of fighting within, focus on the spiritual warfare that is taking place against it. We are up against marine spirits that are unleashed on the people, and very shortly, there will be laws to make fornication, adultery and what we know to be indecent exposure, legal. In fact, it has already begun.

The book of Solomon clearly shows strategies for married couples regarding sex. Man’s deepest need is to experience the oneness of authentic love, in a dependable relationship.

The Songs of Solomon depict a woman as an enclosed, private, protected garden for royal use, into which she invites her beloved to enter. Never withhold sex from your spouse (Songs 4:9 & 5:1). God made the breasts and the lips to satisfy. More kissing is needed between married couples.

Honey, milk, wine are used as comparison for kissing – and they are all good for the body. Something happens when married couples kiss. It brings healing and deliverance. Most married people no longer kiss (Songs 7:7-8).

The book also speaks to us about the different fruits and drinks a person should use to add spice to the marriage relationship.

Both husband and wife should compliment each other on a daily basis (Songs of Solomon 4: 16). Always remember that this is also a Promised Land and a great investment that God has given you.

Wedded couples must fight fatigue
Many times, married couples experience attacks such as fatigue when they want to engage in sex, and it is time for them to fight back; to break every attack upon their lives.

God wants each and every one to enjoy sex so that there is no room for adultery. Adultery allows a person to lose his/her authority. So it is critical to fight for your sex life and have sex regularly.

The book of Solomon also outlines the different perfumes and oils, blended beverages, the apples and raisins that can be used. Washing each other’s feet, a nice massage, manicure and/or pedicure can do wonders. Don’t dress at home as if you are at church services. A little purple in the hair and a few hair extensions don’t hurt (Songs of Solomon 7: 5).

There needs to be openness and good communication to deal with the happenings that are taking place today. The world is supposed to look on, wanting to be married. So married people can’t just sit by while the world is enjoying sex more than they are enjoying it. Withholding sex or becoming complacent in your marriage will bring disaster.

Refuse and abstain from any sexual encounters before marriage. Simply put, keep your virginity until the time of marriage and avoid any situations that arouse or awaken sexual desires and activities before marriage. God created sex to be wonderful and fulfilling, but only within the boundaries of marriage.

Wives, always declare Songs of Solomon 4: 16:

“Awake, O north wind, and come, O south! Blow upon my garden that its spices may flow out. Let my beloved come to his garden and eat its pleasant fruits.”

Husbands always declare Songs of Solomon 4: 9-11:

“You have ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; you have ravished my heart with one look of your eyes, with one link of your necklace. How fair is your love, my sister, my spouse! How much better than wine is your love, and the scent of your perfumes than all spices! Your lips, O my spouse, drip as the honeycomb; honey and milk are under your tongue; …”

Healing By Miracle Or Medicine

No one wants to be sick, yet today there are many millions who are and their colour, race or social standing was not the deciding factor.

The Holy Spirit wants to heal, but before the healing takes place, the mind has to be at the place of embracing the Healer, the healing and the method. God can use or allow medicine, nutrition or miracles to do so, and He can and will often do it in unorthodox ways – ways that defy and challenge logic. Sadly, there are many who die because they refuse to change their mindset about healing – even Christian leaders who are supposed to believe in the power of God.

We will want to discredit God’s power while ignoring several scriptures in the Bible (Matthew 16: 17-18). Interestingly, the major part of Jesus’ ministry dealt with healing and that was why He became famous.

Every sickness has a root and that root is spiritual. Infirmity is a spirit (or a curse) and there are many diseases and illnesses that fall under the umbrella of infirmity. There may be lack of certain things within the body which may cause a sickness. In the Bible, God uses different methods to bring healing to different persons including medicine – herbs and natural extracts. He also used doctors and His servants with the gift of healing to heal different people (1 Corinthians 12: 9; 2 Kings 20: 1 – 11; Isaiah 38: 1-8). In the same way, we go to the doctor and he checks into our family’s medical history. There are many sicknesses that may come down through the lineage based on the sins committed by our foreparents – including sexual sins, witchcraft or injustice. That is why it is key for Christian medical doctors who understand this to rise up. You cannot medicate a spiritual problem, nor can you give complete help if all areas are not addressed.

Many may say, “He is not a doctor, he can’t talk about healing!” But that is the problem in the world today. Interestingly, Isaiah the Prophet did not study medicine, he studied what we would call international relations. When the king Hezekiah was about to die from his illness, the king began to pray and seek God, refusing to accept the fate of death. The prophet directed the king to apply poultice of figs which many medical scholars today say is an antibiotic. We also see again in 2 Kings 5: 1-15, a mighty and great commander who had leprosy. Leprosy today is known as Hansen’s disease, which is a long-lasting infection caused by bacteria which affects the skin, eyes and nervous system. Hansen’s disease is treated with a combination of antibiotics. Typically, two or three antibiotics are used at the same time. In the Bible, God gave His prophet an instruction/prescription for this great commander – to go and dip seven times in the muddy Jordan River. What would the medical scholars and intellectuals of today say about that in response? Maybe they would say that the prophet of God had a psychotic disorder and needs Zyprexa, Rexulti or maybe even some Abilify. Others who would receive that instruction, based on their status (and level of pride), would probably think it a foolish instruction, walk away and find a way to fly out for treatment, since they don’t even have confidence in their local health system. Naaman himself thought it was nonsense when the maid told him the instruction was from the prophet of God. Nevertheless, he obeyed the instruction.

Sometimes, the place the Lord is sending you has exactly what you need for your healing, even if you don’t see or understand it. What if the state of the muddy river had the properties necessary to fight the bacteria affecting his skin and body?

Following Divine instructions and having an open mind to the things of God is the key for your healing. You may be directed to go on a three-day fast for God to give you instructions, or you may be instructed to go and show yourself to the priest (Luke 17: 12-14), who will anoint you with oil and pray for your recovery.

Something as simple as forgiveness or taking communion, being anointed with oil by God’s anointed servant, changing your diet and an understanding of herbs and their uses can bring healing.

There are many within the society today suffering from various illnesses – some are even afraid to confide in family members. The question is, what are you willing to do to be healed?
