That the eyes of my understanding be enlightened

Father God of glory,  
God of our Lord Jesus Christ,  

I ask you to give me   
the Spirit of wisdom   
and revelation   
in the knowledge of You.  

That the eyes of my understanding   
be enlightened  

That I may know   
what is the hope of Your calling
and what are the riches of the glory
of my inheritance in Jesus  

And what is the exceeding
of Your power
in me as a believer

according to the working   
of Your mighty power,  

Which You wrought   
in the Lord Jesus Christ,  

when You raised Him from the dead,   

and set Jesus
at Your own right hand
in the heavenly places,

Far above   
all principality,  
and power,  
and might,  
and dominion,  
and every name that is named,   

not only in this world,  
but also in that which is to come: 

And hath put all things
under Jesus' feet,

and gave Jesus to be the head   over all things to His body, 
of which I am a member,

which is the fulness of Jesus
that filleth all in all


Ephesians 1:17-23

Respect of Persons

The law applies equally to everyone.

Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. – Lev 19:15

Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it. – Deut 1:17

Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts. – 2Chr 19:7

For there is no respect of persons with God. – Rom 2:11

And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him. – Eph 6:9

But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons. – Col 3:25

My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? – Jms 2:1-4

But By Prayer and Fasting

And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 

Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.

Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Mt 17:14-21

Most think the “this kind” refers to the kind of devil, however note the immediate context that “this kind” refers to unbelief.

The disciples did not need to fast while Jesus (the groomsmen in Mk 2:19 and Lk 5:34) because they could see Jesus.

These instructions were for us today. We (believers) are filled with the Holy Ghost. Fasting and prayer get the flesh and unbelief out of the way so that we can more fully walk in the Spirit.

Prayer of Faith

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

James 5:14-15

Look at new testament examples of healing the sick, in each case there is no
“prayer” asking God to heal someone. Instead what you find is the “prayer of faith”: commanding a devil to go, commanding the sickness to go, speaking health to the body, and/or telling the person to do something they could not do while sick.

We do not need to ask for what God has already given us and wants us to have (Note: nothing necessarily wrong with asking, but we do not need to ask or beg more than once as that demonstrates doubt that God already gave it to us).

Instead, we ask once in faith and then can repeatedly: 1) thank Jesus bearing our sickness by His stripes and thank Jesus for giving us the authority in His name; and, 2) using the dominion over the Earth and authority God gave us to command the devil and sickness to go, and command health and healing into the body.

Forbidding to Marry

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 Timothy 4:1-4

It only recently occurred to me that this is prophesy. That a sign of the latter times would be the forbidding to marry, a doctrine of devils, would manifest in the world.

Consider that the global woke religion has destroyed marriage that God created.

Driven under the cover of “population control”, the only acceptable relationships in the New World Order are those that do not produce children such as homosexuality and pedophilia.

We have seen the broad acceptance of every form of sodomite relationship, including and not limited to homosexuality and transexual. Pedophilia and beastiality are currently following the same path to acceptance. These perversions will become the only “moral” relationships, and those to do not proactively virtue signal their support of it are the “haters” and “immoral” bigots.

Reason of the Cold

The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom;
it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.

Proverbs 26:15

The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.

Proverbs 22:13

The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

Proverbs 20:4

The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.

Proverbs 12:27

He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.

Proverbs 18:9

Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.

Proverbs 19:15

The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.

Proverbs 21:25

Power to Get Wealth

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

Deuteronomy 8:18

A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.

Proverbs 13:22

Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.

Ecclesiastes 5:19

Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

Proverbs 13:11

Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God

These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.

Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:

And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.

Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God.

Deuteronomy 12:1-4

Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Jeremiah 10:1-5
