FARDAWN CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATES
|fight the good fight From: david dawson 26 Apr 2011 (03:56)
There has been some interesting comments made about Christians disagreeing about the right and wrongs of church doctrines, the real issue is many have not been discipled, educated yes, but not discipled.. many have been taught about the protocols,hearsay,doctrines, traditions and rituals of there church. this is where the problems lies it is a rarity where churches teach the basic fundamentals of the Word of God and its Gospels. even in my experience many Christians inclusive of \'born again believers\' are not sure about Creation, versus Evolution, The Flood and the Ark, Abram and his covenants with God, Moses the Ten Commandments, the splitting of the Red Sea..etc. the Virgin birth, Lazarus being raised from the dead by Jesus, His miracles, His Rightful claim to be the Son of God, the Saviour, the Trinity, Many don\'t really understand the reason of His Scourging, His betrayal,the Cross His burial and Power of His RESURRECTION.
And then we have some churches starting to adopt the new age dialectic stuff of One God in all faiths.
To me these are basic fundamental Sunday school teachings which still seem to be debatable in lots of churches..My concern is, if these church people dont believe in the basics of Christianity how can there doctrine be safe..
Gods greatest command is to love one another that\'s including those who still are sinners.
How can i send converts to a church who totally rely on charisma of personality\'s then the charisma of the Holy Spirit; music performances that has priority over the Word of God. Not forgetting the great exploitation and demand from churches to fund questionable projects..
I have found most churches lack in areas of discipling converts. The refusal to encourage and teach converts /church members who have a ministry and gifting..the failure to recognise elders, instead they create team leaders where the pastor has total control over, move them, sack them, bypass them , whereas an anointed elder has been placed in the church by God to help the pastorate as a overseer and cannot be sacked.
Worse there are still lots of churches who try and emulate the conviction of the Holy Spirit by preaching the Bible wrapped up in condemnation, condemning people to make altar calls.
This are the Last Days,we need to stand for the truth. would we agree with those who preach condemnation, would we agree with the TV guys who rake in millions of pounds/dollars for there ministry, Jevohahs Witness the Mormon,the gay Christians,they all believe they are true and honourable Christians they believe they are right as much as anyone else is.[Irrespective what scriptures say]
If we follow these basic principals when we can go forward
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 meekness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Gal 5:24 But those belonging to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.
Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Gal 5:26 Let us not become glory-seeking, provoking one another, envying one another.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO SEEK THE HOLINESS OF CHRIST, THIS DOES NOT MEAN WE CONTRADICT HIS TEACHINGS, HIS LIVING WORD. DID HE NOT JUST COME TO BRING GOD\'S LOVE OF RECONCILIATION BUT ALSO A SWORD TO DIVIDE THE TRUTH
REFLECTION; GOD WILL BE GLORIFIED even thro\' the old TV
From: david dawson 26 Apr 2011 (23:14)
yes the Lord is using the TV to expose things. 3weeks ago a documentary did a piece on white Brit muslim and the cameras followed him to young aggresive muslims preaching there faith they purposely antagonised older white brits who were offended. i believe this exposed the true nature of the beast and the threat of sharia law.
Again the TV exposed mans inadequency of foretelling of natural events. On the the latter end of 2010 a earthquake hit Indonesia again, scientists , oceanologists , climatologists predicted, a tsunami wave will hit certain areas of Hawaii. all the TV crews from all over the world was in the district waiting for it to hit. The scientists calculated it would arrive at a specific time, the commentators were giving all sorts of scenario\'s, the world waited with abated breath, including me,
There was experts saying the sea level has risen by few inches and the squalls looked bigger, the time for it to arrive came and they gave it another calculation then someone realised it was wasnt coming , in fact Rhyll, North Wales had higher waves. Again man was exposed for trying to interfere in Kingdom business Our God is the Creator of Heaven and earth.
regarding derren browns exposure of healing, he and the guy he used terms as faith healing.. we dont deal with faith healing we deal with Holy Ghost Divine healing.. again satan was exposed as a wolve dressed up as sheep..
In these last days where deception is rife you should test any alleged Divine Healing and Faith Healers by testing the person to see if he is a true teacher, a true prophet, and exhibits the fruit of the Spirit. If they fail this test, no matter how spectacular the healing and no matter if it happened to you personally, get away from false teachers and false prophets. God can and still does heal with Biblical Divine Healing. If you want healing, ask the Lord. go to the Healer a man of God who is full of the fruit of the spirit. Go to the elders of your church and have them pray for you. But stay away from bogus or doubtful healing crusades especially where they want you to pay or demand large money offerings; and so called christian shaman masquerading as true men of God. Act8v9-23
PRAYING IN THE CLOSET, A SECRET PLACE From: david dawson 19 Apr 2011 (01:23)
SOME EXPERIENCES AND THOUGHTS
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly Matt 6v6 (KJVR)
THERE IS SOME OBSTACLES THAT CAN PREVENT CHRISTIANS FROM MEETING JESUS IN PRAYER IN THEIR QUIET TIME IN THE CLOSET.
BUT FIRST AND FOREMOST CAN YOU CONFIDENTLY SAY GOD IS YOUR FATHER.
SECONDLY, ARE YOU FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND USING THE GIFTS GOD HAS
FREELY GIVEN. 1 COR 12v1-12
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND YOUR NOT FILLED WITH THE
HOLY SPIRIT. YOU WILL FIND IT DIFFICULT TO PRAY WITHOUT THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
NO MATTER HOW INTELLECTUAL YOU ARE, OR HOW GREAT A TALKER YOU ARE,
IRRESPECTIVE YOU WILL FIND YOUR PRAYERS AND INTERCESSION DRYING UP. YOU WILL
FIND IT DIFFICULT TO WORSHIP AND MAGNIFY GOD FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME.
THE GIFT OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES IS ESSENTIAL IN PRAYER, THIS IS WHERE THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BRINGS FORTH UTTERANCES AND GROANS OF INTERCESSION AND PRAISE.
AND LISTENING INTENTLY, TO WHAT THE LORD HAS TO SAY WITH A REJOICING FROM THE
DEPTHS OF OUR SOUL.
FOR THE ONE SPEAKING IN A TONGUE DOES NOT SPEAK TO PEOPLE
BUT GOD, FOR NO ONE UNDERSTANDS [Him], BUT IN [his] SPIRIT [or by [the] Spirit. HE SPEAKS SECRETS. [or, mysteries]. 1 COR 14v2 ALT BIBLE
DECEPTIVE RELIGIOUS WAYS.
SATAN ISN’T BOTHERED ABOUT RELIGIOUS PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST. ALTHOUGH THEY MAY KNEEL ON RELIGIOUS KNEES AND SPEAK RITUALISTIC PRAYERS IN SOME REGULAR PATTERN, ALSO THEY RECITE WRITTEN AND LIFELESS LITURGIES BECAUSE IT’S PART OF THERE TRADITION OR RELIGION.
MATT,15 v8-9 ‘THIS PEOPLE DRAWS NEAR TO ME WITH THERE MOUTH AND HONOURS ME WITH THEIR LIPS BUT HERE HEART IS FAR FROM ME ; BUT IN VAIN THEY WORSHIP ME , TEACHING DOCTORINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN.
SATAN, HATES TO SEE A MAN ON HIS KNEES IN SECRET, HE KNOWS WHEN A CHRISTIAN IS ON HIS KNEES HE MEANS BUSINESS AND IF HE CAN PERSERVE IN HIS FAITH, SURELY, HIS PETITIONS WILL MOVE HEAVEN AND BOUND TO STIR GOD.
THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER CAN GET QUENCHED
SELF DISICIPLINE HELPS
DISCIPLINE MEANS TO BRING OUR BODY UNDER SUBJECTION OR WE MAY END UP MISSING SO MUCH THE LORD WANTS TO GIVE OR DO THROUGH US 1COR 9v27.
JESUS SAID MEN OUGHT ALWAYS TO PRAY AND NOT TO FAINT LUKE 18v1
PAUL SAID IN 1THESS.5v17 PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.
THE DEVIL WILL DO EVERYTHING TO STOP THE INTERCESSORY PRAYER WARRIOR.
HE ATTACKS THE BODY IF WERE LAZY IN SELF DISCIPLINE.
WHEN WE GET DISTRACTED AND SLOW DOWN IN OUR STUDIES AND PRAYER TIME, THESE ARE THE MOMENTS HE WAITS FOR, HE\'S QUITE SMUG WHEN WE MOVE AWAY FROM DOING WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING.
HE BRINGS SLUGGINESS TO THE BODY AND MIND, WITH TO MUCH TV OR INTERNET, NOT ENOUGH OR TO MUCH SLEEP, OVER EATING WHICH CAN MAKE A MESS OF DIGESTIVE SYSTEMS, CAUSING HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND BAD CHOLESTRAL, CLOGGING BLOOD AND ARTERIES, DULLING THE BODY AND MIND WITH ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS.
SATAN LOVES TO SEE DOUBT AND HESITATION WORKING IN A BELIEVERS LIFE
WHEN WE ARE INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO PRAY IN OUR CLOSET WE SHOULD RESPOND QUICKLY WHEN WE ARE PROMPTED INWARDLY TO PRAY.
WE MUSTNT HESITATE OR WONDER WAS IT A WHIM TO PRAY, THE MORE WE RESPOND IN PRAYER YOU WILL KNOW THE DIFFERENCE WHETHER IT’S A WHIM OR NOT.
SO STOP WHAT YOUR DOING, STOP READING OR WATCHING T.V. OR SURFING SOCIAL NETWORKS, EVEN STOP IF YOUR DOING CHURCH BUSINESS.
WE SHOULD BE IN THE CLOSET LISTENING TO WHAT OR WHY THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS CALLED US TO PRAY FOR
WE NEED TO RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU JAMES 4v7
THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER WHEN BELIEVERS SEEK THE LORD’S FACE IN THEIR SECRET PLACE;
FAITH IN THE LORD CAN MOVE NATIONS AND GAIN VICTORY OVER CITY’S.
LOOK AT WHAT GOD DID TO THE BAAL WORSHIPPERS ON MOUNT CARMEL THROUGH ELIJAH 1KINGS 18v1
HOW MOSES PLEADED TO GOD FOR THE TRIBE OF ISREAL WHEN THEY HAD BECOME A BACKSLIDDEN NATION. EX 32v1.
ALSO WE SEE DANIELS FAITHFULNESS AND HOW HE CHANGED A NATION IN BABYLON
ABRAHAM PRAYED FOR SODOM, GOD DIDNT STOP ANSWERING TILL ABRAHAM FINISHED MAKING HIS PETITIONS.GEN 18v22-32
CAN YOU IMAGINE THE POWER WHEN ONE OR TWO START TO PRAY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, HOW GREAT WILL BE THE VICTORY.
THOUGH WE LIVE IN A WORLD OF UNBELIEF, GOD OUR FATHER IS WILLING TO ANSWER OUR PRAYERS, BUT EVEN MORE SO FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BY FAITH PROCLAIMED JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD AND WILLING TO RESPOND TO HIS CALLING TO SIT WITH HIM IN THAT VERY SPECIAL PLACE
MATT 7v11; IF YOU THEN BEING EVIL, KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS TO YOUR CHILDREN, HOW MUCH MORE SHALL YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN GIVE GOOD THINGS TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM.
JESUS SAID TO THEM HE WHO HAS EARS TO HEAR LET HIM HEAR; MARK 4v9
LET US JOIN JESUS IN OUR CLOSETS, LET NOT ANYTHING STAND IN OUR WAY,
COME WITH A CLEAN HEART AND LET US SIT BY HIS FEET IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES

inspirational Gods Word
|In this politically correct society as a Christian we do have to be careful in what we say. Our own personal rhetoric or quoting scriptures may lead to a criminal offense, fingerprinted, fined or imprisoned or sued and will end up with a police record.
We do need wisdom in choosing our words which is one of the principal [Prov 4v7] tools a Christian can have.
Generation after generation man has become more highly educated, with greater understandings of sciences, technology, communications and astronomy/space than ever before.
Greater knowledge and new discoveries creates greater understanding of philosophies and theories which many men assume it leads to a higher level of god –like wisdom.
Early civilisations such as the Egyptians, Mayan/Aztec Indians etc, were always seeking greater ways to be godlike and posses the wisdom of a supreme being.
In the Bible we have the tower builders in Gen 11v4 and the Greeks in 1Cor1v22, seeking greater knowledge and a higher wisdom.
God is not against intellects, scientists, inventors, or man making new discoveries in outer space or discovering how the human body works, because we are created in His Image.
Instead of mankind thanking God for all His wonders He has created, man has chosen to pat himself on the back and say how wonderful am I, how clever am I, and man became in awe of man. They couldn’t see God the creator of all; they couldn’t see Him when He came upon the earth.
Many deny God‘s existence even with so much evidence to prove there is a God the creator.
Satan has tricked man again by twisting things around. They have theorised the dating of the earth they have theorised evolution. Mans ultimate aim now is dabbling with atomic particle accelerators making them collide with each other to see what happens. Men are unwisely trying to disprove Gods creation by distorting and trying to re-create mans theory on evolution/ creation.
The bible warns us in Gen 11v4; such people seeking their own wisdom man or worldly wisdom, will be dealt with by God.
No matter how intelligent this scientists and theorists, teachers and promoters are they cannot see
He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with [their] eyes, nor understand with [their] heart. John 12v4; Eph 4v18.
And many have failed accepting the preaching of the cross, is to them that perish, foolishness; 1Cor 1v18
In whom the god of this world hath 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 4v4.
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
1:19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
1:21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
1:22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
1:23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
1:24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.
1:25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
There are three wisdoms,
1st].man’s wisdom, without Christ its fleshy 2Cor 1v12
2ndly] worldly wisdom 1Cor 3v19.
3rdly] Gods wisdom Dan2v20; Ps 3v19.
The bible clearly states if you’re lacking wisdom ask
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1v5
And we need to walk in wisdom to others Col 4v5
For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
