EMERGENCY WARNING TO PROFESSING WITCHES PLANNING TO DO HARM TOWARD GOD'S ANOINTED...

"DON'T be Deceived! This 'Call to Curse' is set up by satan himself!"


Listen In... Pass It On: #FightingTheGoodFightOfFaith
E MERGENCY WARNING TO "WITCHES" AND ANYONE ELSE THAT WOULD SPEAK HARM TO THOSE WHO HONOR GOD... "DON'T TOUCH OR HARM, EVEN ONE OF, MY ANOINTED ONES!!" Regarding today's rumoured attempt by those of you who profess to be "witches," and anyone else who is planning to curse President Trump, his family, his cabinet, or any of those who support them, FOR YOUR OWN SAKES, PLEASE, do not participate!

            IT'S A TRAP! DON'T BE DECEIVED, this "call to curse," is organized by satan himself, working in and through the lives of those who have been deceived by him! For the sole purpose of using your own words and actions against you, satan seeks to "trick" you into calling God's Unfathomably Tormenting Wrath down on your own heads. DON'T FALL FOR IT! PLEASE, for your own sakes,...

            DO NOT speak, even one word, of harm toward President Trump or any of his associates who stand with him. If you are too weak to resist satan's temptation to do evil works, you will have no choice but to prepare yourself to suffer the very same curses, torments, horrors, indescribable pain, and the death that you choose to speak, with your own mouth, against President Trump!  And, likewise, you will be cursing your own life, to death, by cursing anyone working alongside our President, as well as anybody else who fears and honors the only Master, only King, and One and Only Lord of ALL of Creation,.. JESUS, THE CHRIST, of THE MOST HIGH AND MIGHTY GOD, for Whom there is NO equal!

            BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE,... 
...refuse to participate in cursing anyone!
...call on our wonder-full Lord, Jesus Christ, and commit yourselves to Him wholeheartedly!
...pursue The Lord Jesus Christ with your mind, body, and soul. I know first hand that He will give you the joy you have longed for. He will forgive you of every one of your mistakes and bad choices. In other words, He will, working side by side with you, begin dismantling the walls in your lives that have been keeping you out of the Loving Arms of your Father in Heaven, Who has been waiting for youYour peace, joy, love, rest, and ultimately the fulfilment for why you're here on this earth depends on your making this right choice!  And, most of all, discovering what you are longing for, the purpose for your living, depends on your "choosing".

            Fact: Jesus Christ, and only HE, can exchange the hate and bitterness in our heart, for love instead; He will bring good and trusting friends into our lives if we ask Him to. He, and only He, can bring healing between you and anyone you have been separated from for whatever reason. He, and only HE, can fix our broken hearts and heal our broken minds. GOD LOVES YOU AND WANTS YOU TO COME HOME... NOW!

            Jesus Christ is, through this simple letter, calling you "home"! He loves you at a depth that nobody else can! He wants you in His Arms like nobody else on this entire planet can want you... and all you have to do is "want" Him too.

            NOW, right there where you are, say this to God, "Father God, in the precious Name of Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of all lords, I lay my life at Your Feet. I come before You, confessing that I am a sinner, and I ask for You to forgive me of all my sins - those that I know I have committed, as well as those that I am not even aware of.  I ask that You come into my heart and be my Lord. I lay my life, and everything in it, at Your Feet, and ask that You please take me and begin to change me to be like YOU. I ask that You redeem the time that has past, and allow me the opportunity to become exactly what You have predestined me to be, from the foundation of the earth. I commit my life to You now, and thank You for receiving me as Your own. In the wonderful name of Jesus Christ, the son of the Living God, Amen."  And AMEN!!!

            WELCOME HOME! If you have just prayed this prayer we want to congratulate you for making the greatest decision that you can ever make! By accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, you have begun the wonderful process of being grafted into the family of God; and we welcome you home. We would like to invite you to contact us so that we can send you information that will help you begin growing your new relationship with God. We would also encourage you begin attending a Holy Spirit-filled, Bible-believing Church, right away.

            We advise you to begin reading your Bible daily, whether you understand it or not. Always remember, God is not nearly as consumed with your understanding Him, as He is with your *believing* Him! The Bible is like no other book that has ever been written; for it is literally alive! The Holy Bible, God's written Word, has the ability, as you read it, to become stored in your heart where the Holy Spirit can bring back in to your remembrance.  You will find that those Scriptures will be applicable to whatever you are going through, at any time!

            There are wonderful Bible teachers on television and on the radio that can, especially early in your walk with God, help you to begin receiving good teaching and encouragement right away. Although very informative, these programs are never to be a substitute for close relationships with people who love and serve God. At times, the transformation process that you have now begun will be difficult, and you will be tempted to go back to your old ways of living your old life. It will be the times like these that, hangin' out with strong Christian friends and mentors, will prove to be of the utmost importance. There really IS strength in numbers!

            CONGRATULATIONS!!! I would like to welcome in to the Family of God... to right where you have always "belonged"! (Selah)

            And, remember, NO MATTER WHAT we keep on PRESSIN' IN, and learnin', and growin'.  By the way, have you been in a place in your life when your glass seemed unusually half empty, after is used to be half empty?  How did you handle things and what was the result?  To share  testimony with us, please  e-mail us.  Feel free to write your testimony in a letter and mail it to TOWARD THE MARK, P.O. Box 1152, Yorktown, VA 23692-1152.

In Passionate Pursuit of SINGLENESS this Valentine's Day Week

"Flipcard Menu of Blog Titles"

"Dyou know the level at which The Person of The Holy Spirit KNOWS and HONORS those who truly love God?!  In His Presence you become keenly aware that He holds and intimately deeper understanding of YOU than even YOU have of yourself!  In His Presence, you immediately become aware that you are "HOME" - with "FAMILY" - and that the part you were created and assigned by God to perform, and complete, is crucial to God's Calculated Plan!
The following link leads to a very special Between The Lines podcast feature, one of the most profound revelations I would have never realized if I hadn't seen and heard it for myself, concerning the pursuit of God and His Plan and direction for us. If you have not been honored and celebrated in the presence of The Person of The Holy Spirit, you have n-o  i-d-e-a who you really ARE!  LISTEN IN to the podcast feature:
'FACE-TO-FACE with THE PERSON of THE HOLY SPIRIT'  and be sure and pass this on to others you know need encouragement too."
 -Keith (and Brenda)


During this week when so much attention is turned toward husband and wife love relationships, and boyfriends and girlfriend dating relationships, we would like to offer some advice to those who are currently not married and praying for their future mate. I spent the first fifty-two years of my life by myself and I'm not going to tell you it was always easy being alone, or patiently waiting.

Some weeks I prayed daily for God to reveal my mate to me, and sometimes I prayed more than once a day. Whenever I entered a ministry service or event, I often wondered, "Is 'she' (the 'one') going to be here?" And, I couldn't even tell you how many times I would hear well-meaning people come up to me and say things like, "Brother, God must really be preparing some amazing girl for you" or, "When you meet 'the one', you'll know it!"
Day after day, month after month, year after year, and decade after decade, though I was not really consumed with finding 'her', I couldn't seem to silence the voices in my head. Like a pesky little brother Mom makes you take with you wherever you go, voices would sound off at every turn, questioning, "Is she here? Is she? Is she??" Each time those annoying voices started up again, all I could think was, "If only I could get my hands on those little suckers... !"
There I was, a successful minister at a great church; had my dream football career; toured and recorded with my own band; and I could go on and on... the guy everyone always said seemed like the one who has it all together! And, for years, because all of my friends were married, I ate in restaurants alone, came home after church on Sundays and turned on the football game in an attempt to silence the deafening loneliness, and all but begged God to reveal to me just what it was that was wrong with me so I could work on changing it.
Well, I finally came up with a plan. I thought, "I could out-smart those voices by convincing myself that I was born without 'the marriage gene'! That would surely shut 'em up!" Well, just like every other thing I tried to do on my own, my plan didn't work. The voices continued.
By the time I was about forty years old, I decided that, if I can't shut 'em up, I'll flood 'em out, with God's Word! That was the very BEST decision I have ever made in my life!! I began seeking God and meditating on His Word, with a greater diligence than I ever had before. It was only then that the voices went from deafening, to annoying, to tolerable-like whispers... at least for the most part.
Finally, I learned that "I" had to stop dwelling on things that were not of God, like TV shows. Realizing just how destructive and suggestive primetime television programming was becoming, I knew I had to do something about that. So I called the cable company, and cancelled it!
If you truly want a Godly mate, there are a few things I can share, from my own personal experience, that really helped me prepare for the day that God allowed me to meet Brenda. I encourage you to practice what I endearingly call "The Tried-and-Proven 5-Step Prep" laid out below. There couldn't be a better time to start than now, this Valentine's Day week.
1) Turn the TV off! If you look to Hollywood to set your expectations for a mate, loneliness will remain your companion. Recognize that unreal, or unreasonable, expectations rob us from receiving, not only our peace but, every good thing Jesus Christ wants us to have. Having said that, I am in no way suggesting you compromise yourself by settling for someone who you know does not know and love God wholeheartedly. After all, marriage was not man's idea, it's God's, and it will NOT function correctly with-out (on the outside of) God and His Word. ~Never forget this: Without GOD... it's NOT Holy Matrimony.~
2) YOU cannot "FIX 'em"! If you think you can change someone, you are deceived, and brace yourself for a torturous ride. Only Christ Jesus has the power to change the human heart. Marriage is not a 50/50 arrangement; it's a 100/100 commitment. So, relax! Trust God to introduce you to a "Godly possibility." I must warn you, however. Just because someone, in an attempt to win your heart, says they are a Christian, it doesn't mean they are! Standing in a church building on Sunday makes someone a Christian about as much as standing in a garage makes you a car. As a safeguard for us, Jesus says in Matthew 7:15-20, "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them."
3) Prepare for what you are praying for. You do NOT want to meet the prepared, unprepared. Diligently seek God. Become the kind of person that you've been asking God to bring to you. Be passionate about, and in love with, God and His Word. And do everything as God and His Word tells you to. Look in the mirror. Do you dress, and carry yourself, in the same way that you have envisioned your future mate will? If not, change it! *You can't BE something you're NOT, but you can BECOME something you're NOT.* I once heard it said that "'Insanity' is doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results."
4) You don't get married because you NEED to; You get married because you WANT to! And you'll never have the "want-to" until you don't have the "need-to."
5) Finally, and crucially important, the word "single" does not mean "not married." The word "single" means: to be Separate, Unique, and Whole, and it's the most important part of the original state of a person's life! So, before you are ready for marriage, you must first become "single." Only until you become "single" will you be ready for marriage. Becoming "Separate, Unique, and Whole" within yourself should be your goal; not "becoming married."
The moral of this blog is, no matter what you've done, no matter where you've been in this life, the dreams you've carried since you were a child - including taking part in enjoying Holy Matrimony as God, the Author of Marriage, explains for us in His Word - can, and will, be fulfilled by seeking God first, foremost, and until your time in this life in final.
We pray God bless you greatly as you carry this truth in your heart. Our thanks to our loving Toward The Mark Family of sponsors who make this blog, and all of our resources, possible by their faithful prayer and monthly financial support!

Keith's "Comments from the Author":

"When I was a young believer, I remember hearing someone at our church make the statement, 'Sitting in a pew makes you a Christian as much as standing in a garage makes you a car.' When it comes to identifying ourselves as Christians, I often say that we are identifying ourselves by a verb, not a noun. What I mean by that is Being conformed into the image of Christ is a process that takes place over time. The one who is seeking to be conformed into the image of Christ must daily apply himself to being transformed. Though going to the alter at church to ask Christ to come into your heart gets your name in The Book of Life, becoming Christ-like in nature is a journey that, at that point, is just beginning. I have found that my being successfully transformed takes one key ingredient. That is 'having the WANT to' to change, having the WANT to be just like Christ."

"Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light." (Ephesians 5:14)
