The fight for America is not against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. (See Ephesians 6:12)

There is a spirit battle raging in America right now, as Satan, who disguises himself as an angel of light, and his servants, who also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, are seeking to steal, kill and destroy this nation! (See 2. Corinthians 11:14-15, John 10:10)

Satan uses counterfeit power, signs and miracles, and every kind of evil deception to fool the people! (See 2. Thessalonians 2:9-10)

One of the most effective evil spirits that Satan is using to deceive the masses is the Jezebel Spirit! The Jezebel Spirit manifests itself in women, who are being used by Satan to emasculate men, as they usurp and disregard their God-given authority. The result is the destruction of the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, replacing it with the promotion and legalization of homosexual lifestyle and marriage. In doing so, they are also inadvertently supporting the LGBT agenda in their fight for transgenders to have the freedom to choose whichever public bathroom they want to use!   

The Jezebel Spirit is everywhere; in the government, our education system, the entertainment world, and yes, in the church!

One of the key people that Satan is using to lead America on the path of total moral destruction is Hillary Clinton! But God will put a stop to Hillary’s march to the White House, by instead electing Donald Trump to become the next president of the United States, and in doing so, bring an end to the reign of this wicked Jezebel Spirit over America!

Donald Trump, like John the Baptist, will be a man with the spirit and power of Elijah, and God will use him to bring back manhood to America, causing the hearts of the fathers to turn to their children, and the rebellious to accept the wisdom of the godly! (See Luke 1:17)

Christian women dream of having the ideal godly husband! 

What these women are actually looking for is a man that God knew in advance, and chose to become like His Son, Jesus Christ! (See Romans 8:29)

It is man who loves his wife unconditionally, just as Christ loves the church. He provides leadership to his wife the way Christ does to His church, not by domineering, but by cherishing. 

It is a man who does not reject or hate himself, but is full of God’s love! He knows that a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself! His words evoke his wife’s beauty. 

Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her! He will make her look good, as she radiates with God’s holiness! (See Ephesians 5:22-30)

It is a man who loves and honors his wife and never treats her harshly! Instead, he treats her with understanding and as an equal partner in God’s gift of new life. He knows, that as he treats her as he should, his prayers will not be hindered! (See Colossians 3:19, 1. Peter 3:7)

It is a man who fulfills his wife’s sexual needs, and gives authority over his body to her! (See 1. Corinthians 7:3-4)

It is a man who thinks about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife! (See 1. Corinthians 7:33)

RIGHTEOUS SEX | By Edwin Christiaan

The apostle Paul taught that if a man thinks he is treating his fiancée improperly by giving in to his passion and having sex with her, he should marry her as he wishes. It is not a sin. In other words, if they can’t control themselves, they should go ahead and marry. Because it’s better to marry than to burn with lust! Otherwise it becomes a sin to have sex without being married! 
(See 1. Corinthians 7:9, 36-38)

But marriage must never become a distraction to one’s spiritual walk. You always need to be with someone who encourages you spiritually, and not someone who will distract you and pull you away from God!

Because, how can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can light live with darkness? How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness?   

Therefore, you should never team up with and marry someone who is an unbeliever!!! (See 2. Corinthians 6:14-16)

The Bible speaks about the dangers of the last days, where, among other things, vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth! (See 2. Timothy 3:6-7)

How amazingly true this is! Over the years, we have seen many such women go from one prophetic meeting to another, without their lives changing for the good and them becoming godly!

Instead of following Biblical truth, these women no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They are being tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching, and they are easily influenced when people try to trick them with lies so clever, they sound like the truth!

These women follow their own desires, and they are only looking for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They reject the truth, and chase after myths!
Our modern-day myth include prophetic teachings, revelations about how to get into your promised land, when and how you will get your “Boaz” husband, big money blessings coming your way, promises of getting to live in big mansions, and how you will be attaining a prominent leadership position! (See 2. Timothy 4:3-4, Ephesians 4:14)

When you are a chosen child of God, He is working in you through His Holy Spirit, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him! (See Philippians 2:13)

It is the Holy Spirit that helps you in your weakness. For example, you don’t know what God wants you to pray for, but the Father, who knows all hearts, knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for you in harmony with God’s own will, causing you to pray and only ask for things that He desires for you! (See Romans 8:26-27)

That’s why it says that we can be confident that God hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him!  And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for!  (See 1. John 5:14-15)

Now we also understand, what Jesus meant when He said: “ You didn’t choose Me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name!”

Nehemiah, an Israelite living in exile, was a cupbearer to the king of Persia. One day he was informed, that Jerusalem was in a state of despair with its people poor and the city walls in ruins. Upon hearing this, Nehemiah became filled with sorrow and felt led to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild the city walls. God confirmed Nehemiah by giving him favor with the king of Persia to travel to Jerusalem. The king gave Nehemiah passages and supplies to help with the construction of the wall. (See Nehemiah 1:1-11)
When Nehemiah got to Jerusalem, he told the people how the gracious hand of God had been upon him, giving him favor with the king to build the wall. 

Then the people of Israel replied at once, “Yes, let’s rebuild the wall!” (See Nehemiah 2:10)
But, Nehemiah encountered great opposition from on all sides of the enemies of Judah for his plans to rebuild the wall. The Samaritans, Ammonites, Arabs and Philistines, they all came against Nehemiah!
Here is a sample of the opposition that Nehemiah had to endure before and during the rebuilding of the city walls of Jerusalem, in his own words:

“But when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official heard of my arrival, they were very displeased that someone had come to help the people of Israel.” Nehemiah 2:10 NLT

“But when Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem the Arab heard of our plan, they scoffed contemptuously. What are you doing? Are you rebelling against the king?” they asked. Nehemiah 2:19 NLT

“Sanballat was very angry when he learned that we were rebuilding the wall. He flew into a rage and mocked the Jews, saying in front of his friends and the Samarian army officers, “What does this bunch of poor, feeble Jews think they’re doing? Do they think they can build the wall in a single day by just offering a few sacrifices? Do they actually think they can make something of stones from a rubbish heap—and charred ones at that?”
Tobiah the Ammonite, who was standing beside him, remarked, “That stone wall would collapse if even a fox walked along the top of it!” Nehemiah 4:1-3 NLT

“But when Sanballat and Tobiah and the Arabs, Ammonites, and Ashdodites heard that the work was going ahead and that the gaps in the wall of Jerusalem were being repaired, they were furious.  They all made plans to come and fight against Jerusalem and throw us into confusion.” Nehemiah 4:7-8 NLT

“Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of our enemies found out that I had finished rebuilding the wall and that no gaps remained—though we had not yet set up the doors in the gates.  So Sanballat and Geshem sent a message asking me to meet them at one of the villages in the plain of Ono.
But I realized they were plotting to harm me, so I replied by sending this message to them: “I am engaged in a great work, so I can’t come. Why should I stop working to come and meet with you?”
Four times they sent the same message, and each time I gave the same reply.  The fifth time, Sanballat’s servant came with an open letter in his hand, and this is what it said:
“There is a rumor among the surrounding nations, and Geshem tells me it is true, that you and the Jews are planning to rebel and that is why you are building the wall. According to his reports, you plan to be their king. He also reports that you have appointed prophets in Jerusalem to proclaim about you, ‘Look! There is a king in Judah!’
“You can be very sure that this report will get back to the king, so I suggest that you come and talk it over with me.” I replied, “There is no truth in any part of your story. You are making up the whole thing.”
They were just trying to intimidate us, imagining that they could discourage us and stop the work.” Nehemiah 6:1-9 NLT

“Later I went to visit Shemaiah son of Delaiah and grandson of Mehetabel, who was confined to his home. He said, “Let us meet together inside the Temple of God and bolt the doors shut. Your enemies are coming to kill you tonight.”
But I replied, “Should someone in my position run from danger? Should someone in my position enter the Temple to save his life? No, I won’t do it!”  I realized that God had not spoken to him, but that he had uttered this prophecy against me because Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him.  They were hoping to intimidate me and make me sin. Then they would be able to accuse and discredit me.”  Nehemiah 6:10-13 NLT

Nehemiah and his people finished the wall in just 52 days after they had begun.  When their enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of God! (See Nehemiah 6:15-16)

The moral of this awesome story is what the apostle Paul said: If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” Romans 8:31 NLT

“The Lord has made everything for His own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster!” Proverbs 16:4 NLT
For example, God told the hard-hearted evil king of Egypt, Pharaoh, who went after the Israelites to kill them, but instead ended up drowning with his whole army in the Red Sea, the following: “I have appointed you for the very purpose of displaying My power in you and to spread My fame throughout the earth!” (See Romans 9:17 NLT)

“This message shows that God chooses people according to His own purposes!” Romans 9:11 NLT

That’s why the Bible says that, “God chooses to show mercy to some, and He chooses to harden the hearts of others so they refuse to listen!” Romans 9:18 NLT

Now we understand why Jesus said: You didn’t choose Me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit!” John 15:16 NLT

So, it is God who decides to show mercy to whom He chooses! You can neither choose it nor work for it! (See Romans 9:16)

Jesus said about the wicked woman named Jezebel from the Thyatira Church that He gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality! (See Revelation 2:21)

Why? How can He say that? Because women, who have the Jezebel Spirit, are narcissistic people, who are not able or willing to admit any wrongdoing! In their mind, they are never wrong and therefore they will never repent! You can pray for such people till the cows come home, it ain’t gonna happen! She will not! Just as Jesus said it, “She DOES NOT WANT to turn away from her immorality!” Revelation 2:21 NLT   

Instead, she will rebelliously continue in her immoral ways, pretending to be a so-called super spiritual Christian, all the while usurping the authority of men, disrespecting, controlling, and emasculating them. She is lying and causing division, and leading the believers away from a relationship with Christ into one that worships her, as she cleverly uses false teachings and prophecies to entice them!

In other words: Once a Jezebel, always a Jezebel!

We have to remember, that God always gives all people time to repent, and that includes people like Jezebel too, even though He already knows they will not turn from their evil ways! God, who is a righteous God, does it this way for the record, so when the books are opened on judgment day, no one will be able to say, “I never got a chance!” (See Revelation 20:12)

That is why it says, “Even though God has the right to show His anger and His power, He is very patient with those on whom His anger falls, who are destined for destruction!” (Romans 9:22 NLT)

When Jesus was rebuking the Thyatira Church for allowing Jezebel to rule over them, He was talking about a WOMAN, NOT a MAN!

Jesus clearly said: “But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that WOMAN—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray.” Revelations 2:20 NLT

Jesus was comparing this woman in the Thyatira Church to the infamous, wicked woman, Queen Jezebel, from the Old Testament days, who was known for undermining the authority of her husband, King Ahab, by controlling and manipulating him, and taking over his leadership. (See 1. Kings 21)

I have heard many women, especially those who have the Jezebel spirit, cleverly confusing this issue and shifting the focus off from themselves, by saying that the spirit of Jezebel also operates in men! You will find these women in prophetic church circles, many times leading the gatherings. Isn’t it amazing how Jesus emphasized that Jezebel calls herself a prophet, who “leads My servants astray”? During our many years of traveling for the ministry, we have encountered so many women – too many to count - who are self-proclaimed prophets. These women are always, very shrewdly and undetected, leading people away from Christ into deception, with false teachings and false prophecies!

As part of His rebuke to the Thyatira Church, Jesus also said that Jezebel is a false teacher, who teaches ‘deeper truths’ - revelations that in actuality explore the ‘depths of Satan’! (See Revelation 2:24) This is exactly what is going on in these prophetic gatherings, where the Jezebel women flock.    

So, let’s cut to the chase: The Jezebel spirit only pertains to women, simply because of the fact that men have been given natural authority from God - it’s not something they would need to fight to get, they already have it! Women, on the other hand, have not been given that same authority! But they feel they should have it, and feel treated unfairly by God. That is why the purpose of this particular demonic spirit of Jezebel is to take the position of leadership authority that the man has in marriage and church, by using manipulation, control, domination, and seduction to achieve this! They’re trying to force nature and God, but they will always experience God resisting them in this area, adding to the offense they feel.

Jesus will never choose someone to be His follower, who KEEPS ON living in their sinful lifestyle!

Why? Because the Bible says: “For God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like His Son, Jesus Christ!” Romans 8:29 NLT

Jesus only chooses those, who will become like Him! And, in order to become like Jesus Christ, you cannot live a lifestyle of someone who indulges in sexual sin, who worship idols, or commit adultery, or is a male prostitute, or a homosexual, or a thief, or greedy person, or a drunkard, or an abuser, or a cheater! (See 1. Corinthians 6:9-10) Jesus was none of these things!

On the contrary, those Jesus has chosen will testify, saying that once they were like that, but now they are cleansed and made holy and right with God! (See 1. Corinthians 6:11)
God’s chosen children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son, Jesus Christ holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them! (See 1. John 5:18) They will become like their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!!

PIGS WILL TURN ON YOU AND ATTACK YOU! By Edwin Christiaan @edchristiaan

Jesus said: “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.” Matthew 7:6 NLT

Pigs here are representative of those who would ridicule, reject, and blaspheme the gospel once it has been given to them. We are not to give the gospel of Jesus Christ to someone, who has no other purpose than to trample it and return to his own evil ways. We identify such people through discernment, as indicated in 1. Corinthians 2:15 NLT: Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things!”

This does not mean that we refrain from preaching the gospel, but if anyone refuses to welcome you or listen to your message, let him or her go, and as the Bible says; shake the dust from your feet as you leave! (See Matthew 10:14)

The gospel is not for those who mock and trample it, and then turn on you and abuse you!

Being overweight is probably one of the most depressing problems plaguing Christians today. It has become an epidemic! They greatly struggle with low self-esteem, self-rejection, and self-hatred. Many are also jealous and even scoff at those who are slim and look good. Just telling them to consume fewer calories than their bodies burns over the course of a day or week, does not cut it for most of them. Beside health issues that can cause weight gain, most of these people are comfort-eaters, meaning they compulsively eat because of unresolved pain or traumas caused at some point in their lives. They just cannot control the urge inside of them for the need to medicate themselves with food, and in doing so, easing the pain!

And yet the Bible says that one of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control! (See Galatians 5:22-23)

In other words, anybody who is chosen by God, will be able to overcome being overweight or obese by exercising self-control!

As the apostle Paul said: “I am allowed to do anything, but not everything is good or beneficial for you. And even though I am allowed to do anything, I must not become a slave to anything! (See 1. Corinthians 6:12, 1. Corinthians 10:23)

“For you are a slave to whatever controls you!” 2. Peter 2:19 NLT

Sunday, June 5, 2016


The majority of the people in the churches fall into the category of those “who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced!” Mark 4:18-19 NLT
These are Christians, who do not have the same humble and serving attitude that Christ Jesus had! They selfishly look out only for their own interests, want to get rich, and have a worry free lifestyle! (See Philippians 2:3-5)
These are the type of Christians who are jealous of what others have. They quarrel, fight and scheme to take it away from them. And when they ask God for things, their prayers are not being answered, because their motives are all wrong, they only want what will give them pleasure! (See James 2:1-4)
You do not see lasting fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control been produced in these Christians! (See Galatians 5:22-23)
Therefore, it is clear that Jesus did not choose these Christians as He says: “You didn’t choose Me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using My name!” John 15:16 NLT
Jesus warns to, “Beware of false prophets (Christians) who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.  You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act.” Matthew 7:15-16 NLT
“A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit.” Matthew 7:18 NLT
“Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.” Matthew 7:20 NLT

Saturday, June 4, 2016


Jesus said: “You didn’t choose Me. I chose you!” And: “For many are called, but few are chosen!” John 15:16, Matthew 22:14 NLT

“For God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like His Son!” Romans 8:29 NLT

And the Lord disciplines those He loves, and He corrects and punishes each one He accepts as His child! (See Hebrews 12:6)

In other words, because God has chosen you and accepted you as His child, He will make you become like His Son! Therefore, God uses the struggles of this life, like pain, stress, persecution, misunderstandings, and financial problems to shape your character, so you end up living right and looking like His Son, Jesus Christ!

For this reason Hebrews 12 verse 11 NLT says:
“No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way!”
“As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as His own children!” Hebrews 12:7 NLT

In a Christian marriage, the man is the head of his wife and has the responsibility to lovingly lead his wife in doing the will of God! (See Ephesians 5:22-33)

But, if the man is married to a woman who possesses the Jezebel Spirit, she will undermine his God-given authority and she will end up leading him astray, away from the will of God into sickness, financial ruin, and defeat! (See Revelation 2:20-23)

Thursday, June 2, 2016


Jesus said: “You didn’t choose Me. I chose you!” “For many are called, but few are chosen!” John 15:16, Matthew 22:14 NLT

When you are a chosen child of God, you become His sheep! And that’s why Jesus said: “My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me!” John 10:27 NLT

Because God’s chosen children listen to the voice of Jesus, they do not make a practice of sinning, for Jesus Himself holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them! (See 1. John 5:18)

God’s chosen sheep will be warned against those who want to lead them astray, because they have received the Holy Spirit, and He lives within them, so they don’t need anyone to teach them what is true. For the Spirit teaches them everything they need to know, and what He teaches is true—it is not a lie! So just as He has taught them, they remain in fellowship with Jesus Christ! (See 1. John 2:26-27)

If you are not chosen, even if you consider yourself to be a Christian, you will not be able to be a sheep that listens to Jesus, be His follower, or be known by Him!

For this reason, Jesus said that, “On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name. But I will reply, I never knew you!” Matthew 7:22-23 NLT

There will also be many not chosen Christians who will say: “But we ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets. And Jesus will reply, ‘I tell you, I don’t know you or where you come from! Get away from Me!” (See Luke 13:26-27)

When Jesus has chosen you, He began a good work within you! You will never fall away, but you will last till He comes back to get you!

As the apostle Paul said: “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6 NLT

That’s why it is written in Romans 8 verse 29 NLT that, “God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like His Son, Jesus Christ!”
