Are You Struggling With Lust?

Lust is nasty. You are blessed when you are born less greedy and lustful. If your will is strong enough to restrain the strong craving inside of you, you are blessed, too. Now you may think, ‘then I’m lost because I’ve been trying to fight this lust in me for so long and I can’t. It controls me.’ Well, let me first assure you that you are already on the winning side if you are fighting! For many people’s hearts have been hardened by unbelief, and they accept the false teachings of this world (consensual premarital sex, homosexual intercourse, “good” pornography, masturbating, etc. are OK or even good for you) because of fear and hopelessness and, frankly, to please their flesh; does this sound harsh to you? That means your heart is still hard. Don’t you ever settle for less than complete freedom! May the Spirit of God open your eyes to see and understand! I pray for conviction and godly sorrow that leads to repentance and freedom (2. Corinthians 7:10), not condemnation, in Jesus’ name!

I’m not looking down on you or reproaching you from afar. God never does, He loves you very personally. He is close to you and He is always willing to help. His love is gentle, kind and patient. He loves you and does not look at you in a condescending way. You may feel left alone, but please believe that He is close to you and wants to help you. He would, if you would only let Him! He does it His way, yes, but He surely comes to rescue you. Oh, but that’s the tough part, too, right? That He helps you His way? Believe me, I speak out of experience! I have struggled with my own lustful desires for a large part of my life and I know the silent battle. I would not speak all this truth to you if it was not out of love! I mean, look at me now! Hear my testimonies, how they abound of God’s great love! There is hope, people of God! There is so much hope in the redemptive power of Christ, in the blood that cleanses us from all sin and we can do nothing without His Spirit. It is His Spirit that enables us to live as conquerors, not victims.

Even if you do not feel like a conqueror right now, I want to speak to your most holy faith to believe. God will heal you and help you break out of that cycle. And if you’re chosen for greater faith, He will lead you into tearing down all the high places – the false refuges you rely on – and help you fight till bloodshed against the lust in you. How do you fight? By relentlessly looking ONLY at God. This is the only way: look away from you and look at Christ, look at that beautiful man, our Savior! That one other human (the “one”) cannot save you! That relationship, that marriage will not save you. That sex, that part which arouses you when you watch pornography and masturbate, that part is not going to give you peace. You are not going to rest when you finally have that (and you most probably want that because something is gravely lacking in you. But only God can fill that void). When you believe in God’s love and redemption, that is when your heart will finally, truly rest (Hebrews 3:7-11).

Finally, I want to tell you something that may upset you even further: you, among all the people, are the most blessed! ‘Wait- what? Yes, YOU are the most blessed. For in your weakness, the Lord is strong; there is so much room for God to be Him in you, and what a blessing this is (2. Corinthians 12)! Because of this, there is so much hope! Let us examine this matter further over the next few weeks. May the Lord bless you, my dear brother and sister in Christ, and may He be gracious to you. May He open up the eyes of your heart to realize how much He loves you and desires to be with you! You are so loved, my friend! Stay tuned for breakthrough! Amen!

Love Has Enemies

It has been a while, brothers and sisters in Christ! I have been going through an intense season of testing and my cup truly overflows as I stretch out my thirsty soul towards the Lord! How are you doing? Has your trust in the Father grown? This morning, I see a dam breaking for Blue Mountain Ministry and powerful streams of water pushing through the bricks, silencing the voice of the enemy. Hallelujah!

May godly sorrow and grief lead us to repentance, allowing the Holy Spirit in us to just be Him and not who we want Him to be. May we say,

No, Lord, it’s not okay. I am no longer OK with my sins. My innermost thoughts should be about you, I should love you with all my heart, with all my strength and with all my mind. This cannot continue. Redeem me, do it for Your name’s sake and set me free forever! Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. I make room for you, Holy Spirit! I love you! Save me from ever settling down with less than You. I want my heart to want God above all else! Help!” 

Love has enemies. The people of this world do not like it when we lose our lives for Christ. The prince of this world hates God’s children. It is pure hatred directed against us but he disguises himself as an angel of light. If we are not careful, we end up partnering with him in hating our neighbors as we hate ourselves, instead of loving our neighbors as we love ourselves. Oh, but greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world! He has overcome!

He never leaves us but helps us and reminds us of His love – we only need to cry out and if we do and wait in patient love towards God, the Spirit turns the stony parts of our hearts into flesh. He sets us free from the heavy yoke of slavery so that we can rule over sin and not be slaves to them. He helps us be the person whom we were created to be.

Brothers and sisters, let me take you on a journey into the heart of God over the following days! I have powerful testimonies to share and I can’t wait to hear yours! We need each other in this hour. Arise, army of God! Breath of God, come and blow over the dry bones, let the tendons and flesh be attached and lives enter their bodies! Let Your Bride, Jesus, walk by the Spirit of life, her head raised and shining pure and bright with Your glory! Amen!

LOVERS OF GOD 5. “I am Yours.” (On 2. Timothy 3)

Today is the last part of our series! I wanted this to look more like a letter. These past six weeks have been a crazy journey for me to let God renew my heart so that I can be a true lover of God again. It was as if He was letting me be in this fiery trial so that I can prove my faith.

If you followed this series, you’ll remember that we talked about how it is only by God’s grace that we can even love Him. The very fact that God chose us should make us grateful, motivate us to live godly lives and lead us into a greater depth of revelation-knowledge of our Father whom we are to love.

In the battle against our own flesh – and how lost we are without the Holy Spirit! – we must constantly let God’s Word work mightily in us by reading His Word daily, letting His Word speak over us and aligning ourselves according to His Word through faithful obedience.

I want to encourage you to keep pursuing Him, with all your strengths and weaknesses and to keep waiting on Him to transform your heart. I hope that this series blessed you and I want to close with a confession which I am able to speak out from the deepest depths of my heart by God’s grace and mercy:

"Jesus,
I owe you everything.
Take all of me,
You are enough for me.
I am Yours."

Prophetic Word for Pentecost 2021

“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

2. Corinthians 3:17b

WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT.

In the morning of May 22, 2021, I had a dream. I saw a multitude of women trapped in a small prison cell and lying hopeless on the floor. One of them was highlighted to me as she was being tormented by a man. This man was experimenting on getting her private part stimulated so that it would continue to be aroused. It was torture! Her inmates had their backs turned and were trying not to watch; they were glad that they were not the target this time.

The torturer was communicating with a group of men who were watching online – some of them were well-known to us. These men were part of his team and encouraging him to keep her aroused. The poor woman, who was rather tender in nature, could not hold the shame any longer and hanged herself afterwards in the same prison cell. She covered her face with a piece of paper beforehand because she did not want her inmates to have to see her dead face.

This dream truly grieved me. The women were held captive by the enemy and his human partners. They were being used as a pornographic tool and left to kill themselves in painful shame and hopelessness. I started interceding for them and God made me realize that I was not only praying for women in the sex industry, but also for women who are suffering from PGAD. So if you can, please join me in the following prayer!

First, we thank you, Lord, for these strong and beautiful women. Thank you that they are made in Your image and that You know them. You formed each and every one of them with Your own hands and breathed Your very breath into them. You are a merciful and compassionate God who loves justice and righteousness and You yearn to set them free! We praise You that You have already won. You are coming with vengeance and You are mighty to save.

I now ask for protection as we proceed to intercede for these women. We hide under the cover of your blood, Jesus, and accept Your righteousness. Fill us with Your Spirit, Father, and empower us to stand firm and fight. Thank you for Your angels who are guarding us. We put on the full armor of God and raise up our shields of faith and the sword of the Spirit as we pray in Jesus’ name:

May the Lord anoint you, women, and fill you with His Spirit so that the eyes of your heart may be opened to know better the love of God for you! You shall see and know the hope to which He has called you, and the riches of the glorious inheritance you have through Christ. As you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you shall be sealed by His Spirit once and for all as His holy one. Your name shall be “Beloved” and “Redeemed”!

I say that you are God’s Delight. No one and nothing can ever separate you from His love. He has chosen you. He is willing to save you. He is willing to heal you. For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son to die on the cross and to be raised back to life so that whoever believes shall not perish but have eternal life! I pray for an increase of faith that you may believe the power of the Holy Spirit.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! You shall be set free from shame as you draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings. I prophesy that your heart will be sprinkled to cleanse you from a guilty conscience and that your body will be washed with pure water. You shall fear the Lord and not harden your heart today when you hear His voice!

As the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord falls on you, you shall believe the good news of salvation. You shall receive a revelation of Christ who has been sent to bind up the brokenheart ed, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. The Lord’s favor is on you and the day of vengeance of our God has been proclaimed, to comfort all who mourn, and to provide for those who grieve!

I prophesy exchange! As you come to Jesus and lay down all your burdens, you shall receive rest and peace instead! You shall receive a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. Joy will be your portion and complete deliverance from the prison of your heart. You shall no longer accept the lies of the enemy but believe in Truth!

I prophesy revelation! Revelation of God’s incomparably great power for those who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. God placed all things under His feet!

I prophesy faith in the name of Jesus which will make the darkness in and around you tremble and demons shriek and flee! Your faith shall increase to such a level over the next weeks and months that you comple tely submit to the headship of Christ and are utterly satisfied and satiated with Him who fulfills and completes! You shall be made whole!

Woman of God, you shall live. I say, YOU SHALL LIVE AND DECLARE THE GOOD WORKS OF THE LORD. You shall live to tell of the many good things the Lord has done for you according to His compassion and many kindnesses. The spirit of depression shall leave you as you praise and declare the good works of the Lord! I prophesy HOPE to raise you up from the ground!

Finally I curse you, you vile, tormenting spirit! In Jesus’ name, your hands and feet shall be bound and your ugly mouth shut! The men who partner with you and who do not belong to the Lord shall reap what they sow. But those who have been chosen shall find mercy and return to Him! They shall start fighting for the women and become their greatest ally! God, come to the rescue of all!

The prison doors are open. Women of God, rise up by the strength of God and leave the old place of bondage and shame!

Amen.
