Peters Ghost-A Message On Faith

Act 12:1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.

Act 12:2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

Act 12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

Act 12:4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

Act 12:5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

Clarke:

Acts 12:5

Prayer was made without ceasing - The Greek word εκτενης signifies both fervor and earnestness, as well as perseverance. These prayers of the Church produced that miraculous interference mentioned below, and without which Peter could not have thus escaped from the hands of this ruthless king.


JFB:

prayer was made without ceasing — rather, “instant,” “earnest,” “urgent



Act 12:6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

Act 12:7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

Act 12:8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

Act 12:9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

Act 12:10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

Act 12:11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

Act 12:12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.

Act 12:13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.

Act 12:14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.

Act 12:15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.

Act 12:16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.

Wesley;

Continual prayer was made for him - Yet when their prayer was answered, they could scarce believe it, Act_12:15. But why had they not prayed for St. James also? Because he was put to death as soon as apprehended.

Wesley cont.

Acts 12:15
They said, Thou art mad - As we say, Sure you are not in your senses to talk so. It is his angel - It was a common opinion among the Jews, that every man had his particular guardian angel, who frequently assumed both his shape and voice. But this is a point on which the Scriptures are silent.

The true since, aside from the superstitions that Wesley brought out is better stated by JFB, Peters Ghost.

that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel — his disembodied spirit, his ghost; anything, in fact, rather than himself. Though this had been the burden of their fervent prayers during all the days of unleavened bread, they dispute themselves out of it as a thing incredible. Still, it is but the unbelief of the disciples who “believed not for joy and wondered” at the tidings of their Lord’s resurrection. How often do we pray for what we can hardly credit the bestowment of, when it comes in answer to our prayers! This, however, argues not so much hard unbelief as that kind of it incident to the best in this land of shadows, which perceives not so clearly as it might how very near heaven and earth, the Lord and His praying people, are to each other.

JFB is the crux of this message Peters Ghost, no matter how hard, earnest, long or loud, many times we are praying with no faith, it is odd, one would think such a Holy Ghost prayer filled meeting would have made them know it was a done deal, the lord would hear, yet, they did not believe as when Jesus showed up at the resurrection they wondered at it in unbelief, these men and women, like us, are all people of like passions, as Elijah prayed and the rain stopped being a man of like passions, meaning a normal man like anyone else, his call and miracles mighty, were all the lords doing, In James ch 5 we read this if any are sick , call the elders and pray the prayer of Faith anointing with oil and they shall be healed.

Mountain moving faith starts with mustard seed faith, Jesus said if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds, once planted grows to be the biggest herb in the garden, so large that birds fly into them for rest and find shade shade, our faith is like this, we must start somewhere, a mustard seed is still faith and will grow to mountain moving faith.

These leaders should have known better, one would think, but they to were people like me and you of like passions, at times praying so hard and not honestly believing anything will happen.


We are all guilty of this at times. The disciples were constantly rebuke by Christ, he even marveled at their unbelief and lack of faith, they were seeing Jesus do mighty miracles first handed, eye witnesses, and they still had a lack of faith, that was before ACT 2 when they were filled wit the spirit, one would think, they, now spirit filled and now people of Faith would believe their earnest long prayers continuing on through the night would have a result.

The prayers indeed helped Peter, but not them the ones in prayer, they simply could not believe their prayer was answered and Peter stood at the door alive, all but the girl, a young women Rhoda, only she truly had faith, young people sometimes are like this, child like faith produces expectation it manifests in pray answered and things happen, as God is, we do not have faith in faith we are told to have faith in God.

This is why we are told to have child like faith, this and having a heavenly perspective are a must for all esp. SR saints. We in our maturity start to strain gnats and swallow camels. Somewhere along the line we lost the simplicity of Christ, His teachings, we may have been let down, or have not gotten an answer to prayers and so, one brick at a time our wall comes down and we are left as a prayer-less, faithless people, going through the Actions of faithfulness in the word and prayer, we forget to every action, there is a reaction.

We are often guilty of praying and honestly not believing our prayer will be answered, this unbelief must be repented of, dealt with, so we can get back on track, praying in fervent humble prayer and like a child, simply expecting our loving heavenly Father to give us our requests, ye have not, because ye ask not, or you ask and you expect to see your Peters Ghost of unbelief and not your Peter of expectation and answered prayer.

Hay! I hear a knock at the door, I thinks its my Peter, I have to go. LOL.

The 12 verses Of Truth And Power

Joh 3:25 Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.

Joh 3:26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.

Joh 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

Joh 3:28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

Joh 3:29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

Joh 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

Joh 3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

Joh 3:32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

Joh 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

Joh 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

Joh 3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

Joh 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

This sermon-Revelation-Truth, was born out of an attempted controversy. John The Baptist, and Jesus, were only at this time, this near to each other ministering, the same block sorta speak. A division, a misunderstanding, a controversy, and John spoke the truth. The simple Ch of Jn 3.

The enemy and unlearned by the Spirit, will always try and make trouble, Hay John, This guy Jesus is on your turf, LOL. It is what it is, modern language. But the one that has the spirit and call, will know, should know how to lay a controversy to rest, TRUTH.

Joh 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

I did not say that, the bible did. It is the truth that sets us free, it is not to bring us into bondage. truth presented or taught in the wrong way can do more damage than 12 demons. I posted a message a long time ago, still gets a lot of reads, " It's Not What You Say, It's How You Say IT" Another related one to read, many reads simple title , ' Paper Cuts" see those. esp Paper cuts.

verse 30 is the same for us all, Jesus must increase and we must decrease, If the seed, that grain of wheat does not die, and is not planted it abides alone, we are to die to self walk in holy humility, serve others with a passion, and serve and worship our lord with ALL passion. It is the only way to bare fruit, make others, and it is TRUTH. Mercy in truth, the two go hand in hand. Not so to the unsaved, backslidden, but those who are truly the Lords is all, Mercy and Truth.

Faith – August 21, 2016-Word In Due Time

Without faith it is impossible to please Me. You must have faith in Me for who I really am and for what I am able to do. Then you will experience Me for real. My promises do not fail. I am able to do what I promised. I do the impossible. I am not limited nor restricted. Trust Me, I am no man that I will lie. I do what I promised according to My plan and purpose. My will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. I am in full control. I know the end from the beginning. Have faith in Me and do not doubt.

Follow Me in faith and not by sight. Your faith will be tested. Be steadfast, unmovable in your faith. Be victorious, an overcomer, and endure until the very end. If any one withdraws before the time, it will be all in vain. Many will fall away from Me in these last days because they do not know Me for real. Do not deny Me when your faith is being tested. Keep faith in Me.

Follow Me every step of the way as I guide and lead you. I go ahead of you, I make the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth. I open doors according to My plan and purpose for those who love Me, who are called for My plan and purpose. I work all things out for good. Trust Me with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. 


Hope in Me does not disappoint. Have faith in Me. I do not fail. I am always with you, I will never leave you nor forsake you. I strengthen you, I help and sustain you. You are not on your own. Stay with Me until the very end. Do not let your guard down. Satan wants your faith to fail. Do not fall prey to him. Put on My full armor every day so that you will be able to stand against all the wiles of satan in these last days. Have faith in Me, your Abba Father, I am better than any earthly father can be.

Praying For Your Enemies, Loving The Christian, Not Easy-But It Can Be Done- Some Meat -Re Post From One Year Ago

http://truthandmercyministries.blogspot.com/2014/08/prayer-praying-for-your-enemies-loving.html

The Lord gave me this message a day ago, I was doing the message and recalled I had posted a message on the subject already, from one year ago. The lord must want this word out again.

 Mat 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

First I must stop with this verse and tell you what it means, this verse if misunderstood could be a very bad outcome. Rodgers word pitchers Greek Dictionary gives the correct render I will use his words.

Resist not him that is evil (me antistēnai tōi ponērōi). Here again it is the infinitive (second aorist active) in indirect command. But is it “the evil man” or the “evil deed”? The dative case is the same form for masculine and neuter. Weymouth puts it “not to resist a (the) wicked man,” Moffatt “not to resist an injury,” Goodspeed “not to resist injury.” The examples will go with either view. Jesus protested when smitten on the cheek (Joh_18:22). And Jesus denounced the Pharisees (Matthew 23) and fought the devil always. The language of Jesus is bold and picturesque and is not to be pressed too literally. Paradoxes startle and make us think. We are expected to fill in the other side of the picture. One thing certainly is meant by Jesus and that is that personal revenge is taken out of our hands.

Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Jesus takes it a step further to say not just to pray fro your enemies. In this verse we read.

1. Love your enemies

2. Bless them

3. Do Good To Them

4. Pray for them

OK, praying is hard enough, now Jesus is saying, we are to bless them, love them, do good to them, to the flesh this is not possible.

What about, doing the same concerning Christians, real Christians, not apostates, that are not part of your Church, Denomination, your theology? This next part once you fully understand it you will never look at this the same.

Mar 9:22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

Mar 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Mar 9:24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

Mar 9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.

Mar 9:26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

Mar 9:27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

Mar 9:28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

Mar 9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.


The Key Prayer, the second thing the disciples that were of the 12, could not cast out the demon, remember that part as it has everything to do with the next.

What do we read in the same Chapter, just a few verses down, it is almost funny,

Mar 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

Mar 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.


What a difference 10 verses make

Mar 9:28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

Mar 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

Why do you think they said this, what was the problem, true the other, was not one of the 12, but the flesh is the problem, they were upset, because we just read they could not do it, the inner 12 could not cast out the demon, and they were in the inner click, but the other, who was he?

It clearly shows no one is perfect and we battle with the flesh. In this my point is, denominational-Church wars, Christian against Christian. Considered an enemy many times, and the root of the disciples saying this was down right Pride.
They were the chosen ones, they walked with Jesus. Many think, and all denominations do, they are the only one that holds the truth, teaches the bible. Ministries may think this, it is 100% pride. Saint Wars, it should be saints making war shoulder to shoulder, esp. now days.

Another reason they could not and the other could, and we may assume this part, the other was a praying person. They were not, not until Acts Ch 2. The evidence is plain.

Mat 26:40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

This was at the end of the ministry of Jesus on earth, so much later, and yet, the frozen chosen, always wanting to be made first, wanting to be greatest, would not really serve one another, shown when they were in the upper room for the last super and not one of them washed the others feet, Jesus did.

This all may seem off topic, it is not. We must understand when we are told to pray, bless, do good, help, go the extra mile, feed, give drink to our enemies, it takes praying men and women, fasting men and women, to cast not just a strong demon out, but a very strong, rebellious, unbelieving proud heart the flesh wars. It takes pray beloved.

You know what I am saying, someone you do not care for says they need prayer, you say, 'OK, I will say a prayer for you" and you do not.

Someone who disagrees with you, or makes you mad, what do many say," I will be in pray for you". That is condescending, proud, arrogant.

The reason we do not see any revival, any real awakening is four reasons.

We find it in the classic verse.

2Chron 7:14 If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.

Some think this verse is to a society, it is not, is is clearly to the believer. If my people who are called by my name.

That is us.

The four things in the verse that clearly tell us why revival, awakening has not and will not happen, the lords judgments are on the world already, we are far past this, it was the repent or else, we are in the or else.

1. Humble ourselves

2. Prayer

3. Seek Gods Face

4. Turn from wicked ways.

Note the number one, requirement, Humbleness.

This is why we do not, can not see any move of the lord until we are humbled, than and only than can we pray. If this were done the verse said, then I will hear from heaven forgive sin and heal the land.

The lord, his ears can not, will not accept prayer of a proud heart.

Loving your enemies, impossible as said, with out humbleness and prayer. It is hard to be one with true Christians due to prayer-less lives.

A survey was taken a while back, it was taken concerning Pastors time of prayer. The report showed the vast majority of Pastors, ministers pray 5 min a day. Yes 5 min a day.
Ravinhill said in an old book.

" I go to all these churches, I see them expanding their office, the Gym, the fellowship hall, but I have yet to see any expand their prayer room"

Love of enemies, love of each other, it can be done with Humbleness and prayer, it can. This is a call to earnest prayer, a call to personal revival.

Revival in one word is the word, repentance. Not manifestation of gifts, but repentance. Think on this

More Great Quotes-From Revival School Ministries

More GREAT QUOTES:

"Holiness and living a sin-free life is heresy to the modern church.
The modern church is, quite simply, just the world with a Christian
T-shirt on!" - Nicky Cruz

"Resolved: that all men should live for the glory of God. Resolved
second: That whether others do or not, I will."
- Jonathan Edwards

"A man may study because his brain is hungry for knowledge,
even Bible knowledge. But he prays because his soul is hungry
for God." - Leonard Ravenhill

"Despite the atrociousness of it, Satan really does have "little
cause to fear most preaching." Most preaching in the modern
church is completely devoid of unction. Pastors are too busy
playing golf or racquetball to bother spending time on their knees.
No wonder some pastors I've heard can more readily quote Dr.
Laura then bible passages pertaining to prayer. It's disastrous.
Satan need not fear under those conditions."
-A. Reavis

"How do we worship our God Wholeheartedly? To answer the
question we must respond to the command...
"If you love me, you will obey what I command." John 14:15.
True Love is complete obedience ... half obedience is no
obedience. If you love Jesus, you will obey what He commands.
This is true love and true worship."

Which Items Will Disappear First During A Major National Emergency?By Michael Snyder, on August 17th, 2016

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/which-items-will-disappear-first-during-a-major-national-emergency

Reader, the post on power outages and some others speaks of putting food and water away and more, I saw this post today, it is the lord trying to wake people up to what is coming.


Once again, if you have not downloaded  my free e-book, 'The 72 hour warning" I would do so, it may help some people out. Links to right-FREE BOOKS

One day in the not too distant future, a major emergency will strike this nation, and that will set off a round of hoarding unlike anything we have ever seen before.  Just think about what happens when a big winter storm or a hurricane is about to hit one of our major cities – inevitably store shelves are stripped bare of bread, milk, snow shovels, etc.  Even though winter storms and hurricanes are just temporary hurdles to overcome, they still cause many people to go into panic mode.  So what is going to happen when we have a real crisis on our hands?

We can get some clues about which items will disappear first during a major national emergency by taking a look at where such a scenario is already playing out.  One recent survey found that over 80 percent of all basic foodstuffs are currently unavailable in Venezuela, and about half the country can no longer provide three meals a day for their families.  Thankfully, some stores still have a few things that they are able to offer, but other key items are completely gone.  The following comes from USA Today…

    Oh, there are some things to buy. Besides salt, there are fresh vegetables and fruits, dairy products but no milk, some cereal, lots of snacks and a few canned goods.

    The only meat is sausages; there are three kinds of cheese. The only problem: A kilogram of each costs more than a fourth of our monthly minimum wage of 15,050 bolivars.

    But basic foodstuffs – the things most Venezuelans want to eat  such as corn meal, wheat flour, pasta, rice, milk, eggs, sugar, coffee, chicken, mayonnaise, margarine, cooking oil and beef – are conspicuous by their absence. And there is no toilet paper, no sanitary napkins, no disposable baby diapers, no shampoo, no toothpaste, no hand soap and no deodorant.

Do you have plenty of the items in bold above stored up?

If not, you may want to stock up while you still can.

Venezuela was once the wealthiest nation in all of South America, but now lines for food often begin as early as three in the morning.  Some people have become so desperate that they are actually hunting cats, dogs and pigeons for food, and there are even a few very sick people that have been killing and eating zoo animals.

Someday similar things will happen in the United States and Europe too.

When that day arrives, will you be prepared?

One of the things that got my attention from the article quote above was the lack of milk.  My wife is always telling me that we should store up more dried milk, and I believe that she is right.

Just imagine not having any milk and not being able to get any more.

What would you do?

Another thing that really stood out to me in the article was the fact that there is a severe shortage of personal hygiene items.  Most people don’t really think of those as “prepper goods”, but the truth is that life will become very uncomfortable without them very rapidly.

What would you do if there was no more toilet paper?

And if you have a little one, how are you going to manage without any diapers?

In general, it is wise to always have an extra supply of just about everything that you use on a daily basis stored away somewhere in your home.  The generation that went through the Great Depression of the 1930s understood this concept very well, but most of us that are younger have had it so good for so long that we don’t even really grasp what a real crisis looks like.

Another thing that we are seeing happen right now in Venezuela is the rise of a barter economy…

    Many of my urban friends are now planting vegetables in their outdoor spaces – if they have any – or in pots. Another friend, who is a hairdresser, is charging clients food to do their hair. For a shampoo and dry, she charges a kilo of corn meal, saying that she doesn’t have time to stand in line like some of her clients.

As you prepare for what is ahead, you may want to consider stocking up on some items that would specifically be used for bartering in a crisis situation.

For example, you may not drink coffee, but there are millions upon millions of people that do.  In a crisis situation, there will be many that will be extremely desperate to get their hands on some coffee, and so any coffee that you store away now may become a very valuable asset.

We live in a world where one out of every eight people already goes to bed hungry each night, and where one out of every three children is underweight.  As global weather patterns become more extreme, as natural disasters continue to become more frequent and more intense, and as terror and war continue to spread, it is inevitable that the stress on the global food system is going to continue to grow.

Today you can waltz into Wal-Mart and buy giant cartloads of very inexpensive food, but it will not always be that way.

Unfortunately, more than half the country is currently living paycheck to paycheck, and most Americans do not have any emergency food stored up at all.

In addition to food and personal hygiene supplies, here are some other items that are likely to disappear very rapidly during a major national emergency…

-Flashlights

-Batteries

-Generators

-Propane

-Can Openers

-Water Filters

-Water Containers

-Anything Related To Self-Defense

-Axes

-Knives

-Sleeping Bags

-Tents

-First Aid Kits

-Matches

-Candles

-Firewood

-Shovels

-Bottled Water

-Warm Clothing

-Lanterns

-Portable Radios

So in addition to food and personal hygiene items, you may want to do an inventory of the items that I have listed above and see where you may have some holes in your preparation plans.

I understand that there will be some people that will read this article and think that all of us “preppers” are being just a tad ridiculous.

But when a major emergency strikes this nation and you haven’t done anything to prepare, you will dearly wish that you had bothered to take action while there was still time remaining to do so.
