What Does The Peace Of Jesus Do For Man?

January 11, 2021Author: Nehemiah Zion

Do you have the peace of Jesus? If you are a believer then you do.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)

This isn’t like the peace the world promises and consistently fails to deliver. It truly brings the sanity the soul needs in the middle of a trial or while overcoming a temptation.

The Peace Of Jesus heals us spirit, soul and body

This is a peace that passes all human understanding, healing our minds and hearts. Keeping us mentally and emotionally secure in Him.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

When our minds are stayed in Him, trusting Him wholeheartedly, letting His peace rule our hearts then He will fill us with His perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3) (Colossians 3:15).

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. (Colossians 3:15)

One key ingredient in every child of God who is a peacemaker (Matthew 5:9) is to walk in holiness (Hebrews 12:14). Peace and Holiness go hand in hand, two sides of the same coin.

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: (Hebrews 12:14)

Love God and meditate on His word daily (John 16:33). Jesus still speaks to us through His word which keeps us pure and hopeful (Romans 15:13). The cleansing power of the word of God makes way for godly natures and direction to sow its seeds and reap the life in Christ.

He is coming soon for His faithful bride. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen.

What Does It Mean To Be A Carnal Christian?

Who is a carnal christian?

October 28, 2020 Nehemiah Zion

The carnal and spiritual believers, are two types of Christians that exist in the church. If you are wondering why church is a mess and so many problems exist within the church, here is an answer.

Who is a carnal christian?

They are spiritually dead and is of the world. Their end is death. (Romans 8:6). I want to share 5 traits that help identify the carnal christian.

  1. Their mind goes against God’s word. Their thoughts and lifestyles do not bear fruit for the glory of God. It’s not possible for them to come under the subjection of the Word of God. (Romans 8:7)
  2. There is always jealousy, and infighting in their hearts. They are impulsive and easily given to sin. (1 Corinthians 3:3)
  3. They love preachers rather than the person of Christ. They are biased in their approach. Love men of God more than God Himself. (1 Corinthians 3:4)
  4. Their weapons are carnal and not spiritual (2 Corinthians 10:4). They consider humans as the enemy and not Satan and his kingdom.
  5. They walk in the traditions of man rather than the perfect word of God. Still babes, unskilled in their christian walk (Hebrews 5:13).

Are you a carnal christian or a spiritual? So many well-meaning believers leave the church because of the behaviour of carnal christians among them.

Young musicians who’ve led music seem to suddenly fall out of faith. Nothing is sudden in life. We reap what we sow in ourselves. When we abide in Jesus we bear good fruit, otherwise it will be bad fruit (John 15:1-7).

Even spiritual believers often reveal carnal traits when they face persecution. Neglecting areas of our lives that need attention will cause us to fall back into the carnal state.

Examine your life today! Search your heart and mind in the presence of God. Let the Holy Spirit reveal to you, personally. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen.

Amid presidential election confusion, Americans taking bold stand for God

‘We need to think about building the kingdom of God’

STUART, Florida — As millions of people look for solid answers in the wake of the disputed 2020 presidential election, Americans in this South Florida city are at this moment voicing every single word of the Holy Bible out loud, non-stop, 24 hours a day from Genesis to Revelation.

This year marks the 20th Bible Marathon in Stuart, Florida, an annual event dating back to the immediate aftermath of the terror attacks against America on Sept. 11, 2001.

The idea for the annual 90-hour Bible Reading Marathon began with Pastors Gene and Donna Healton of the Spirit of Prophecy Ministries, but they have since handed over the reins to Eddie and Joanne Rodrigues of Step Into Grace Ministries. Interestingly, the 2020 event began on Nov. 11, the 20th wedding anniversary of Eddie and Joanne, and concludes Sunday afternoon.

The local governments of both Stuart and Martin County have endorsed the event since 2001, issuing official proclamations in support of publicly reading Scripture in a bandshell at Veterans Memorial Park.

Participants sign up for 15-minute increments as they get to read Scripture that gets blasted through loudspeakers day and night from “In the beginning” in Genesis to the final “Amen” of Revelation.

WND has covered the Bible Reading Marathon numerous times, including in 2013 when Gene Healton said, “We know the country is really not in good shape right now and we need to get back on the foundation of the Bible. And if we don’t, we’re going downhill fast. We know that. Our country needs the Word of God and so we need to continue to declare it and continue to never stop declaring it. They’re trying to take God out of all the fabric of our country. Any place at all where God may be, they want to stop it.”

Gene’s wife, Donna, told WND, “We thought we were just doing it one year … It’s like a mandate God says [to do]. I think this may be the most important thing that the Lord has called us to do here in this county. Just to be able to have God’s Word go forth from here, and with the Ten Commandments here on the land, and here we have the cross and the Star of David. God’s people are just coming together and I think it’s just exciting what God’s doing.”

“Maybe the nation is getting worse and worse and we can see it by the things that are happening on the news,” she continued.

“I really feel like God is sending prophets to speak the Word, but if our government is not going to listen to us, God is going to raise up a people. And I think even though we see things getting harder and people are struggling more with their finances and their jobs and just everything, I mean people are working harder, getting paid less.

“We need to think about building the kingdom of God, and so as people are struggling and having hard times, I think they’re seeking God out more. We have to tell people God is our answer, and so we have to turn to Him because He says things are going to happen in the nations, and we’re one of the nations. … There’s no hope sometimes if you look in the natural, but with God, all things are possible, and He’s our hope.”

The effort to add God to the WWII Memorial

Jerry Newcombe notes FDR’s D-Day prayer is still not part of Mall display

Now that the dust has settled from the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, it’s interesting to reflect on a piece of unfinished business related to our remembrance of that historic event.

Presumably in a nod to the political correctness that currently blinds this nation, the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., unveiled in 2004, noticeably left out any mention of thanksgiving to the Lord for His aid. Yet President Franklin D. Roosevelt repeatedly called on God’s help in the conflict. William J. Federer, the bestselling author and speaker, documents this in his book “The Faith of FDR.”

In a recent radio interview, Federer told me, “The World War II Memorial has absolutely no mention of God. And those that fought in the war were men and women of faith” who are often disappointed by this omission, as they come and visit the memorial.

Federer also noted: “I read through all [FDR’s] public addresses, and I was shocked at how many times he mentioned Christianity and the Bible.”

Here is a small sample of things Roosevelt said in his speeches:

  • “I know that there is not room enough on earth for both German militarism and Christian decency.” (March 1, 1945)
  • “The world is too small … for both Hitler and God. … The Nazis have now announced their plan for enforcing their … pagan religion all over the world – a plan by which the Holy Bible and the Cross of Mercy would be displaced by Mein Kampf and the swastika.” (State of the Union Address, Jan. 6, 1942)
  • In a radio prayer heard live by most Americans: “With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemies.” (“D-Day Prayer,” June 5, 1944)

Perhaps the biggest omission of God at the WWII Memorial is any mention of the FDR’s “D-Day Prayer,” from which that last quote comes. It is estimated that 100 million Americans (out of a population of 138 million) tuned into that radio broadcast the evening of the largest military invasion in history.

Here are portions of what FDR prayed that night:

“Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

“Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith. …

“Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom. …

“Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. …

“Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

“Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.”

The “racial arrogancies” no doubt refers to the Nazi plan to create the “Master Race,” to speed up evolution, to remove from the earth those deemed of inferior stock – the Jews, Gypsies, Slavs, etc. The first group killed in the gas chambers were about 200,000 handicapped people, including World War I veterans with severe wounds.

In 2014, Congress passed and President Obama signed into law a bill to add the complete text of the FDR D-Day Prayer to the World War II Memorial. The only catch is that this legislation will expire within the next year, and the project is still “under development.”

Bill Federer and Chris Long, president of the Ohio Christian Alliance, who has been spear-heading this effort, are raising private donations for this cause. More information can be learned at www.ddayprayerproject.org.

Federer told CBN News last week: “You go to Normandy, what do you see? Crosses – 9,000 of them – and Stars of David. These were men and women of faith. And so it’s only proper that there should be some acknowledgment of faith at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.”

In an age of political correctness run amok, the D-Day Prayer Project is a worthwhile goal to help us get over what I call our “American Amnesia” – where we continue to forget God, despite all His help. As FDR observed, “If the spirit of God is not in us, and if we will not prepare to give all that we have and all that we are to preserve Christian civilization in our land, we shall go to destruction.” (Speech at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Sept. 2, 1940)
