Close The Doors To Evil

So many people want to ignore the evil all around and think if they just pretend they don’t see it, it will go away. It won’t. It will actually come closer until it destroys them. Evil doesn’t operate by any laws or rules. It is encompassed in chaos, confusion and blind fury. Justice operates within it’s origin, Love. You see, God is Love. God is Just. He will bring peace and justice to this earth. Evil will try to bring death and destruction. CLOSE THE DOORS TO EVIL

For far too long Christians have minded their own business and kept mostly to themselves. They allowed the Lord’s Name to be taken out of many areas of our country because they didn’t want to offend anyone. Ignoring evil only allowed it to grow stronger. It got into our schools and universities trying to brainwash our children with anti-Christ propaganda. Our children should be trained up in the way they should go, but many parents allow their children to be trained up in the ways of other gods. Then they wonder when they are older and starting to go on their own why they do the things they do. Is this my child? Yes! You trained them, even by not training that was training.

Many Christians don’t understand true love. They think that we are to simply love everyone no matter what they do. There is no accountability to this love and in truth, it is no love at all. Love protects those it loves. How does love do this? Does it allow lies to be sown into it’s children? No, in fact, love speaks the truth. Love stands up for its own and even lays down its life for them. Love locks the doors on evil to protect its loved ones.

Does that mean it doesn’t care for others? No! Love allows others to make their own choices. Love never stops believing that it can reach into another heart and change a life, however, the Father knows when a heart is beyond being changed and then Love allows judgment to come.

I wonder how many people who are against the second amendment live in their houses without security, with their doors unlocked, in ungated communities, in a town without police. In the 1960’s we lived in houses that we didn’t have to lock the doors, but we live in a different generation now. So, if we protect ourselves and our own families from those who want to harm us by doing all we can, what makes the difference on a national scale. If we don’t go back to locking the doors to this country again and let only those in we choose to let in, the evil will come on in just like it has in our schools and universities.

People say we can pray, and rightly so because we should. When you come out of your prayer closet though there is a requirement to stand up and speak the truth. IF evil comes against you, you have the right to defend yourself. IF a pedophile tries to get to your children, you have a right to stop them. IF evil comes against our country, we are required to protect each other as we are brothers and sisters in this great nation. There is a place for evil in our nation, it is in our prison system. Evil must be locked away to protect those who cannot fight for themselves. This is called justice. If an evil person changes their heart and chooses to love, that is their right, yet there are consequences for their past behavior. Love forgives. It looks for the best in everything, yet it protects. There is a very fine line here and evil would have us think that we need to love it. No, we crush it and we put it in its place, prison, whether it be in the physical realm or chained with spiritual chains under the footstool of Jesus. [Psalm 149; Psalm 110:1; Luke 20:43; Acts 2:35; Hebrews 1:13; Hebrews 10:13]  The only good evil is that which is bound and can never get loose.

As Christians, we need to close the doors to evil in our hearts and lives. Jesus came to save us and He has given us every tool to cleanse our hearts fully and walk in freedom. Repentance from everything we’ve done and from our generational past is key to closing the doors so that evil does not have a right to come in and trip us up. Jesus said that the prince of this world is coming, but he has nothing in Me. Jesus kept His life pure and cleansed His generational blood line otherwise He couldn’t have said that. Another scripture says to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. Another says the bride has made herself ready, without spot or blemish. Repentance is simply turning from the direction we are going and instead go the Lord’s way. It is acknowledging that, asking for forgiveness and granting forgiveness to others wherever necessary. Then it is taking the blood of Jesus and cleansing those areas, nailing any old contracts or oaths to the cross and being set totally free in these areas. Then, the enemy no longer has any rights to come in through those old open doors. We can shut them now and keep him out. This is true freedom but it is work until it is all complete.

Love does not tolerate evil, it overcomes and it crushes it. Love is not passive but aggressive in its passion to protect and execute justice. Without it, society falls into chaos, confusion and lawlessness. Evil doesn’t stop in its pursuit to destroy. Love doesn’t stop in its pursuit to overcome evil and prevail. It is war. It is bloody sometimes, but the battles must be fought if love is to win. Angels are powerful creatures and they go with us as we go to help us in the fight. Demons are also powerful creatures and they empower their puppets. Prayer is a powerful weapon. The Lord tells us to stand up and fight the good fight. Sometimes that means by whatever means we can. If evil is allowed to win, there won’t be a society anymore. If love wins, peace will fill this earth. Love wins. Love triumphs because truth and justice will prevail.

In our country we have the right to free speech. Does this mean that anyone can say whatever they want no matter who they hurt? Yes, unless it is a threat on someones life, harassment, etc. If we modify this amendment by any means, freedom is totally gone because there is no stopping place. It will erode until everyone, with the exception of a few elite, are under total control and even they by the devil himself, who wants total control of the world. This is the darkness that sometimes goes unseen but must be exposed. We are here to advance the Lord’s Kingdom which is continually advancing. We are not here to retreat. Evil must be stopped all over the earth. We have what we need, dare we use everything the Lord has given us?

We have many choices to make. We stand at a crossroads in our lives, our communities, our country and our world. The Lord gave me a song when I was at a crossroads. I recently recorded it and it is now live on YouTube. What choices will we make? Choose Life!

Blessings all,

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…
