Thank you to all who joined us during the 21-day fast. If you would like to read any of the entries, or start your own fast, just go to our last entry and follow the links at the bottom of the page HERE.
You may remember that one of the things I was fasting about was a scripture the Lord has given me repeatedly since Dec. 2010 from Deuteronomy 3:13 – “The rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to half the tribe of Manasseh. (All the region of Argob, with all Bashan, was called the land of the giants…)”
During our fast I did receive some keen revelation on King Og in relation to yoga and overcoming the giants “in the land.” Thank you to those who shared scriptures and revelations on what you have received from the Lord–keep sending them! I believe PraiseMoves has a part to play in this – for example, helping to open people's eyes to the “giants” of yoga and New Age mysticism IN THE CHURCH (“in the land”).
If you'd like to study this, please see: Deuteronomy 3:1-10, verse 13; Genesis 48: 12-22; 49:22-26 and Psalm 136:17-21 (powerful!). Additionally, the great-great-great granddaughters of Manasseh received an inheritance Joshua 17:3-6 since their father had no sons.
“So the Lord our God also delivered into our hands Og king of Bashan, with all his people, and we attacked him until he had no survivors remaining. And we took all his cities at that time; there was not a city which we did not take from them: sixty cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan” (Deuteronomy 3:3-4).
I researched the top 60 cities in the world for yoga. We want to have CPIs (Certified PraiseMoves Instructors) in all of these cities. We already have CPIs in some of these cities–or near them. If you look at Deuteronomy 3, you'll see the correlation of 60 cities with this particular giant (King Og), and the land given to Manasseh (one of the sons of Joseph).
We have the victory in Jesus, and it is up to us to take and hold territory He has won for us — in our families, jobs, communities, churches, ministries, country… “We battle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age…” (Ephesians 6:12).
Yoga and New Age Psycho-Babble
I came against this deceptive spirit involving yoga and New Age psycho-babble twice in the last 10 days — from believers! The deception of yoga and the self-worship and self-aggrandizement of so much self-help/self-mastery/self-empowerment teaching out there now — has infiltrated the church. We want to lift up JESUS, not ourselves (“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me,” John 12:32).
No wonder Jesus tells us, “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves“ (Matthew 10:16). — Realize that some of the wolves may be mixed in among the sheep.
We are in this time NOW: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4). This truth grieves my heart, however, we can continue to share the Truth we know in line with God's word.
Listen CLOSELY to the *voice* of the Holy Spirit. Follow His PEACE in your spirit – if you sense unease or a “check,” STOP and seek the Lord. I had to do that several times the last few days, and I am SO glad I did! Saved us from a “world of hurt,” as they say here in Oklahoma.
If you have anything you would like to share with me or would like me to share with our other “fast friends,” just let me know. I have no idea how many people joined us. There are 61 on this email list, and then additionally those who joined via our blog posts, Facebook and Pinterest.
These are remarkable times, and perilous times. But for those who seek the Lord and follow Him, these are the BEST of times because as David said to the Lord, “My times are in Your hand” (Psalm 31:15).
