76th Anniversary of D-DAY - A Spiritual Analogy

















On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied soldiers clambered aboard heaving landing craft and braved six-foot swells, waves of machine-gun fire, and more than 6 million mines to claim a stretch of sand at a place called Normandy. Their mission was to carve out an Allied foothold on the edge of Nazi-occupied Europe for the army of more than one million that would follow them in the summer of 1944. This army would burst forth from the beachhead, rolling across Europe into the heart of Germany, liberating millions, toppling a genocidal regime, and ending a nightmare along the way. But it all began on this beach in France, with an army of teenagers on a day called D-Day. (link)
/
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13).
/
As we here at the IFB remember the 76th anniversary of this monumental historical event and the valor of those brave men who made up those liberating forces - the spearhead to liberate millions from Nazi oppression and tyranny - I cannot help but think of another highly significant day in the history of mankind which changed the course of mankind FOREVER.

On this Day of days, all was laid on the line for the rescue and liberation of all humanity from the tyranny and oppression of Lucifer (Satan), who is the demonic fascist and oppressor of all the world (Luke 4:5-6; Ephesians 2:1-3; Hebrews 2:14-15). Fallen humanity had been taken into captivity by Lucifer and enslaved in their transgressions. The horrible effects and consequences of Adam's fallen race are deadly and devastating and we all were in great need of rescue from the ETERNAL consequences (Romans 6:23a, 7:24).

The Son of Almighty God debarked of all His DEITY and His ETERNAL glory to bear the Cross of sin and shame for ALL of Adam’s fallen race.

Oh, on this day - The Day of all days - the Lord of Glory, the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God, the Word made flesh; debarked to bear the Cross of sin and shame for ALL of Adam’s fallen race (Rom. 5:12-19). He counted not His life precious unto death. He gave His last full measure (Isa 53, John 10:11, 19:30; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 12:2)! He paid the FULL price for you and me so that through Him we might be LIBERATED from the oppression and tyranny of the devil (John 8:36; Acts 10:38; Heb. 2:14-15), and DELIVERED from this present evil world (Isaiah 53, Galatians 1:4; Eph. 2:2-3) and from sin and death (Psalm 103:12; 1 Cor. 15:53-57)! AMEN!

HIS infinite love, HIS selflessness, HIS steadfastness, HIS faithfulness, HIS righteousness, HIS commitment, and passion made possible our redemption and justification (1 Cor. 1:30; Phil. 2:5-8; Heb. 2:9-10, 12:2). He opened wide the doors of Heaven that ALL might enter in who put their ABSOLUTE TRUST in Him (John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Heb 10:19). AMEN!

The Victory of All Victories!

On the third day, He arose victorious from the grave and He defeated our arch-foes - Lucifer, the evil world system, and sin and death (Gen 3:15, 1 John 4:4, 5:4-5; 1Cor. 15:54-57)! He now sits at the right hand of Almighty God to testify and to make intercession for ALL who put their trust in Him (Psalm 110:1; Heb. 1:3, 7:25, 10:12)!

Oh, Glory! Oh, Praise and Laud to the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29, 1 Peter 1:18-21, Revelation 5)!

HE ALONE has fought and worked to liberate you from your transgressions, sins, and bondage!
.
Do you know the Great Liberator and Savior of the world as your personal Lord and Savior? HE ALONE has fought and worked to liberate you from your transgressions, sins, and bondage! HE ALONE can liberate you from the tyranny and oppression of sin and Satan!

LOOK UNTO Him today (Isaiah 45:22)! He will NEVER turn anyone away. “Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound!” (Rom. 5:20) CALL UPON Him today for deliverance (Psalms 18:3, 55:16, 116:13). You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Babelology - Ideologies and Their Origins


















Babelology is the delusional, godless ideology and philosophy (religious or political) that is outworked and practiced here in time by unregenerate (i.e., Fallen) man (Romans 7:15-24; 8:5-8). This vain ideology seeks to exclude the reality of Almighty God - His Word, His Attributes, His Absolutes, His Natural Laws, His Righteousness, His Salvation, His Judgment, and His Sovereignty as Creator - from one’s thoughts and actions. It is manifested in a life led by self-will, ruled and dominated by man's fallen nature marred by sin (Romans 5:12,19; 8:5-8; Gal. 5:16-17) and a deceived heart (Jer. 17:9). Unbelief and its godlessness outworking is its fruits (Matt 15:16-20; Gal 5:19-21; 6:7-8). During the whole time of earth’s history (which Biblically is approximately 6000 years), Babelology has expressed itself through the nations, human defiance and unbelief these last 4300 years (Romans 1:18-22).

This vain ideology seeks to exclude the RIGHTEOUS REALITY of Almighty God - His Word, His Attributes, His Absolutes, His Natural Laws, His Righteousness, His Salvation, His Judgment, and His Sovereignty as Creator - from one’s thoughts and actions.

Babelology
.
Babelology may be found in many different religious and political manners and forms (Left/ Right, Subjective/ Objective, Absolute/ Relative, etc.), and purports that man can exist in time and eternity without a vital relationship to the Eternal Creator and Sustainer established in truth and righteousness (Rom. 1:23-32). It is an existence that functions in darkness - not in light, in error - not in truth, in unrighteousness - not in righteousness, and in godlessness - not in godliness. The end result of this delusion is the absolute damnation and eternal ruin of its practitioner in Almighty God’s eternal prison for rebellious (lost) men and angels: Hell, or the Lake of Fire (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; 1 Cor. 15:50; Rev 20:11-15; 21:8,27; 22:11).
l
It is an existence that functions in darkness - not in light, in error - not in truth, in unrighteousness - not in righteousness, and in godlessness - not in godliness.

Outside the Box Lays the Answers
.
One must look outside the box of this world system and believe Almighty God and His Word! Then and only then can one find the answers of life, and see the reality of what life and existence in time and eternity is all about.” (see 1 Kings 8:60; Isaiah 45:21-24; John 14:6)
/
Almighty God is the reality of time and eternity! All gods, ideologies, philosophies, and traditions are absolutely bankrupt and an abomination before Him (Exodus 20:3; Deut. 4:23-25). Almighty God’s Word states:

"I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me" (Isaiah 45:5a).

"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).

"Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth" (John 17:17).

"For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven" (Psalm 119:89).

"Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever" (Psalm 119:160).

The Bible states that Man must be rescued from his fallen humanity (i.e., lost condition). This is achieved when one puts their trust and faith in the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ (Romans 7:24, Acts 16:30-31). In Christ is found all the provision for the sinful soul (1 Cor. 1:30).

Almighty God will one day remove this fallen world (1 Peter 2:7-13; 1 John 2:15-17) and create a New Heavens and a New Earth (Isaiah 65:17; Rev.21:1). Then, and only then, will all things be redeemed and in harmony with Almighty God, the Creator of all (1 Cor. 15:26-28; Rev. 21; 22:1-5).

In these last days come out of the godless ideologies of the day - religious and political - and put your sole trust in the God of Truth and Reality (2 Cor. 6:17-18)! Your hope will be sure and you will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Slayer of Giants - Music Song and Video



Slayer of Giants/ Lyrics

Almighty God, My Slayer of giants
Lead me on, Thy RIGHTEOUS path
My strength is weak, but Thou are Mighty
Lead me on, strengthen my hand
Almighty God, Thou Slayer of giants
Lead me on for Thy Name

Almighty God, Thou Slayer of giants
Be my Light, the way is dark
Satan's hosts, seek my ruin
Be my Rock, my strong defense
Almighty God, Thou Slayer of giants
All Thy Word I claim

Almighty God, Thou Slayer of giants
Your victory, is found by faith
The ways of peace, you teach Your children
Our giants fall, in Thy will
Almighty God, Thou Slayer of giants
Victory is found in Thy Name

Almighty God, Thou Slayer of giants
Death and Hades now are slain
The adversary of Thy RIGHTEOUS
FOREVER chained, in Hell's burning flame
Almighty God, my Slayer of giants,
Redeemer of my soul

Almighty God, my Slayer of giants
Savior of my soul
Savior of my soul
Savior of my soul!




Almighty God in You - A Slayer of Giants

Who can ever forget the account of David the shepherd boy and his passion and zeal for Almighty God in spirit and truth when he took on the greatest warrior of the Philistine nation in the Name of the Lord and slew him (1 Sam.17:48-58).

Remember, before the slaying of the Giant of Gath, young David placed his firm trust and reliance in the God and Savior of Israel. He took every opportunity to apply himself and trust in his Great Savior. The more he trusted and applied God’s Word for his life the more he grew. David became confident and had full assurance in the Lord in whom He trusted with all his heart (1 Sam. 17:32-37). David worked with what he had and gave it all to Almighty God for His glory (Acts 13:21-22). As a young man and the youngest of eight, David was absolutely loyal, faithful and diligent in the tasks that were given unto him. David's application of the truth and his walk with Almighty God would make him fearless and a mighty man of valor.

David's application of the truth and his walk with Almighty God would make him fearless and a mighty man of valor.

Young David was a shepherd boy who was given a few sheep to watch over. In this task, he was faithful and extremely protective. In the sheep's defense, he slew not only a bear but also a lion. May I say, how many young boys do you know who would do such a thing? Almighty God was doing a great work in David's heart and was preparing David for exceedingly great things. He was raising up a man to serve for His glory and honor and to testify to the nations that there is a God in Israel (1 Sam. 16:12, 17:32-37, 2 Sam. 7:8, Psalm 78:70 ).

So it was no wonder that when all of Israel was unbelieving and fearful in light of their arch enemy the Philistines (1 Sam. 17:23-24), that the passion and zeal of David were burning hot for the God of Israel’s GREAT Name’s sake. This teenage boy was willing to stand up and fight in the midst of innumerable odds and obstacles which opposed him. David applied himself to the fullest and what he was not able to do he deposited to Almighty God to work out for His glory and Great Name's sake (1 Sam. 17:45-47).

In the end, David - in the strength of the Lord – overcame the countless disadvantages and slew this violent warrior of great stature (1 Sam. 17:32-37, Psalm 23). Throughout David's life he would go on to slay many giants and obstacles which stood in the way of Almighty God’s will and way for his life (Psalms 3, 9, 23, 34, 37, 144).

Oh, beloved of Christ! Play the man and fight the good fight in light of this world’s master and his many adversaries.

My friends, how much more are we to apply ourselves today in the little things and seek to be faithful unto the Lord in all that He has before us for His glory and honor (1 Cor. 10:31). We who are seated at the Right Hand of Almighty God in Christ Jesus, blessed with all of the Heavenly BLESSINGS and POWER (Psalm 110:1, Eph. 1:3, 2:6, Col. 3:1-4)!

Oh, beloved of Christ! Play the man and fight the good fight in light of this world’s master and his many adversaries (Eph. 2:1-2, 6:12). Let Almighty God work through you for His HONOR and GLORY (Psalm 56:12; 57:5, 8, 9, 11; 142:7), you will NEVER be or see things the same!

What About You?

Sadly, many today who profess to know and serve the Savior are seeking solutions that are outside of the will of God for their lives. They are the children of Almighty God (John 1:12) who have chosen to be the subjective worldly prisoners of the god of this world. They (in their ignorance and rebellion) allow Satan’s giants to intimidate them in fear, causing them to miss out on the wonders of what Almighty God would do in their hearts and lives if they would only believe (Mark 11:22, Luke 17:6, 2 Tim. 3:5, Heb. 4:1-2, 1 John 5:4 ). My friend, what is the giant of a "raindrop" in the midst of the oceans of the world? What is the giant of a "burning match" in the presence of the noonday sun? Oh my beloved, Almighty God has ALREADY given us the victory! “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)” Draw out your sword - which is the Word of Almighty God and play the man for our Savior's GREAT Name's sake (Rom. 8:31-39, Eph. 6:10-18, Phil. 4:13, Heb. 4:12)!

Sadly, countless children of the King are oblivious to the ETERNAL BIG picture and only subjectively see life through the limited confines of this vain, temporal and doomed world.

Sadly, countless children of the King are oblivious to the ETERNAL BIG picture and only - subjectively - see life through the limited confines of this vain, temporal and doomed world. They are fools in NOT laying hold of ALL of the precious promises and privileges in Christ that are given unto us to apply in our lives to outwork the glory of God (Rom. 8: 28-39, 2 Cor. 1:20, 1 Tim. 6:12, 19, 2 Peter 1:4)! These are not rooted in the TRUTH of Almighty God’s Word and are powerless to stand against the wiles of the devil (Eph. 6:10-18). They are NOT accessing the heavenly arsenal of POWER and MIGHT of their position in Christ (Psalm 110:1, Eph. 1:3,7, 2:6, Col. 3:1-4). They are oblivious to what TRUE prayer is all about and in vain are wasting their breath with self-seeking requests (John 14:13, Rom. 8:26-29, 2 Tim. 3:5). These have neglected the Holy Spirit of God’s good leading and have chosen to possess a self-led Spirit quenching manner of living, reaping the consequences of being Biblically ignorant (Rom. 8:26-28, Gal. 6:7, 1 Thess. 5:19).

They are fools in NOT laying hold of ALL of the precious promises and privileges in Christ that are given unto us to apply in our lives to outwork the glory of God.

In their many "self-imposed" adversities, testings and satanic siftings, these are taking the satanic bait and are seeking for themselves false saviors to deliver them from the many ills which plague them in this fallen world. Tragically, only in the end, do they reap a deeper despair, confusion and depression, never comprehending the errors of their OWN ways  (Gal. 6:3-8, 1 Tim. 1:19, 6:21, Rev. 2:4,14, 20-22, 3:2, 17-19).

Oh my, beloved! Cannot Almighty God be trusted to govern our lives?? Does He not want the ETERNAL highest and best for you (John 3:16-17, Rom. 8:26-39)? Can He not deliver you from the wiles and diabolical trickery of the fallen angel Lucifer (Eph.2:1-10, 6:10-18, Heb. 2:14-15, 1 John 4:4)?, He Who created the Heavens with their billions of galaxies and trillions upon trillions of stars along with the earth with its countless wondrous beauties, can He not remove a great mountain or slay an opposing giant that stands in the way of His great ETERNAL plan and purpose for our lives (Matt. 7:7-8, 17:20, Mark 11:22-23, John 14:13, 1 John 5:14)? He who defeated the King of Fears (i.e., Death - Heb. 2:14-15) by victoriously rising from the grave to sit at the Right Hand of Almighty God, can He not deliver (Psalm 110:1, Acts 2:24,33, 1 Cor 15:1-4)? Can He not rescue you from the adversities and plagues that seek to stand in the way of God the Holy Spirit’s great plan and out working in your heart (Gal. 1:4, Rom. 7:24, 8:26-28)? My beloved, He most surely can! We need to wake up to the great ETERNAL realities and truths of Almighty God our Savior and taste and see that the Lord is good, wondrous and mighty to deliver (Job 23:10, Rom. 5:1-5, Eph 5:14,Heb. 10:36, 1 Peter 1:7, 2 Peter 1:1-10)!

We WILL NOT be delivered from all of life’s adversities, but in all things, we are to be victorious in Christ!

Beloved, the Christian life is one of absolute adventure. We WILL NOT be delivered from all of life’s adversities, but in all things we are to be victorious in Christ (Rom. 8:37, 1 Cor. 15:57, 2 Cor. 2:14, Phil. 4:13, 1 John 5:4)! We are to seek Almighty God’s glory for His great Name’s sake in ALL that we do or say (1 Cor. 10:31, Col. 3:17, 1 Peter 4:11)! In that my beloved is found the POWER of prayer for the child of Almighty God (John 14:13, Rom. 8: 26-29)! We are more than conquers in Christ! In ALL of it we possess the ETERNAL VICTORY which has been given unto us in Christ (Eph. 2:1-10, 2 Peter 1:1-10, Rev. 21, 22:1-5)!

Anything prayed for that is less than Almighty God's will and way for your life for God's glory and honor is rebellion and sin.

In this life’s great warfare there are no utopias here in this fallen world. Do not be deceived. The only solutions for the child of God are found in Almighty God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth.

Anything prayed for that is less than Almighty God's will and way for your life - His highest and best - is rebellion and sin. Remember my beloved,

The GIANTS that stand in the way and oppose God’s will for your life WILL be slain (John 14:13, 15:7, 1 John 5:14)!

In the will of Almighty God you are invincible (Rom. 8:26-39)!

We are to take that hill in Almighty God’s will for the battle is the Lord’s (Rom.8:37)!

My friend, whatever comes your way in these days of adversity and lawlessness, be strong in the Lord, play the man for Almighty God and His great Name's sake, NEVER compromise, fight the good fight of faith and have faith in Almighty God. In doing so, Almighty God in you will become a killer of giants as He works out His will (highest and best) in you for your life unto His glory and honor (John 15:7-8, 2 Cor. 5:17-20, Eph.2:10, 2 Tim. 2:21).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
