Remembering the Last Man on the Moon: 'There Is a Creator of the Universe' | CBN.com: "
Astronaut Gene Cernan, the last man to ever stand on the moon, has died at age 82.

Cernan described his 1972 visit to the moon as gazing back at the earth from "God's front porch," saying the experience convinced him of the existence of a Creator."

Praying for the Unrepentant Man or Woman

Many of us, in our daily walk, know those who do not revere YHWH, His word, and His path for our lives. They can be scornful, rude, dismissive, or angry. They can seem like a bricked up wall, with no way to get in.
It is not just a matter of 'hearing' the word. They may have been told, more than once, that God's word says, "This" and they should consider, "This." They may ignore it, or they may mock it.

Our own hearts can be jealously angry for our God! Praying "Smite them!" may easily come to our minds. Reading the Psalms, we know that this can have a place in our hearts and prayers.

But we are still called to blow the trumpets, warn the sinners, be a hedge of protection, and fight evil.

Remember the words of Paul in Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Consider that this person is NOT the enemy. Consider that this person is in fact surrounded by the enemy (that brick wall) and cannot see clearly, hear clearly, and cannot WALK in the way of righteousness. And they are now 'destined' to die in their sins and face eternal damnation.

They could have found themselves in this situation by willful sin, allowing evil spirits to have control over their lives. Or they could be purely victims, under strong generational curses, or childhood abuses that made them vulnerable to this spiritual bondage and attack.

HOW do we stand against this?

Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We fight against spiritual beings and powers, not physical. We pray.

Putting on the armor of God. Binding the spirits in our own lives and presence. Standing in the gap for our fellow, fallen man or woman. Begging the scales (that blinding serpent again) be removed. Praying that for the GLORY OF YAH, this person can see truly and be given a real and clear opportunity to make a choice of their own for good.

And praying that they take it.

Heb 10:31
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Eph 6:13
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Throw Out Those 'Old Tapes'

I heard a phrase the other day, a woman who said her emotional troubles were caused by playing 'old tapes'. She was referring to the things she had been told, by herself and others, long ago. Recordings of lies that followed her to this moment in time and were standing between her and truth.

How many of us have old tapes playing?

I recall a visitor watching me sort laundry, who said, "I was such a great mom, I didn't even have to look at the size tags to know whose was whose." Maybe they weren't meaning to insult me, maybe they were. But ever since, when I sort laundry, THAT tape is playing. WHY? When I was a little girl I would sort and fold laundry WITH JOY, day dreaming about doing this for MY family. My husband. My children. JOY. Humming and smiling the whole time. WHY are these words in my ears now?

And this is hardly the only tape I've been carrying around with me!

I don't entirely know how to throw out these old tapes. But from now on I intend to recognize them as what they are. The enemy's tapes that he wants me to listen to. And I intend to stand against them.

In the words of one of my wise little men, "YHWH break the words of the enemy. And THROW THEM AWAY."

These tapes are destructive and damaging. They take something that can give joy, such as sorting laundry for my family and ruining it. They can wedge themselves into relationships, family, friends, neighbors. They can push dreams down until they don't float in our hopes anymore.

Join me and STAND AGAINST the lies that the enemy is dragging around after you.

Those old tapes are just lies. Throw them away and make more room for the Joy of the Lord in our lives!
