CALIFORNIA FIRES; PLEASE PRAY FOR RAIN, NO WINDS TO SPREAD FIRE, NO DEATHS ETC.

The Kinkade Fire, which is just over Cobb Mountain, very close to Cobb where I live (on this side of Cobb Mountain) is now over 176,000 acres or 120 square miles! Millions of us have been without power for 5 days, which this evening was just restored, for how long I don't know?

This is real bad, but not as close as the 2015 Valley Fire when I stayed and prayed and faced 360 degree fires including two volcano eruption like flames that were approximately 600 feet high, one on the left and one on the right of the Cobb Mountain ridge that I viewed out my front window. The angels held the ridge as requested by Pastor Norcross and myself. There is an oasis around my house of perfect views like before the fire without one burned leaf in sight. But half of Cobb was burned and I thank my God I and my house was saved from destruction. 

According to Elijah, the seven miracles I saw God do was "Satan started the fire and Satan put out the fire," and according to him my prayers and God energizing the manifestations of holy spirit "were all the work of the Devil."

I believed that if I stayed and prayed for the fires to be stopped, putting myself in harms way that my prayers would be more effectual. God honored my belief and prayers despite Elijah's opinion. I suppose he is not happy that I, my house, other people here were not killed or injured including fire men etc. and that half of Cobb houses, its businesses, school, and the forest was not completely destroyed?

"But the manifestation of the spirit is given to every man to profit withal." I Corinthians 12:7. To profit withal means to be beneficial.

This is not bragging time, this is my praise of what God did, as believers can do nothing themselves without God energizing the power of the holy spirit which is a cooperative effort of the believer and God working together, as in the Greek word used in Chapter 13:1 of Romans for Subject; "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God." The Greek word is hupotasso, which does mean to be subject to God, but it also is cooperation with God, as in a partnership, as I did a year long study and publication called "The Truth About Romans 13," wherein every Greek word was studied, and cooperation was involved as well as being subject to.

Please pray for rain, humidity, cool weather, no winds to move the fires to new areas. Please pray for all the fires in both Northern California, where I am at, and for Southern California to be put out. The fires in the South are threatening The Getty Museum and The Reagan Library. Please pray that they don't get damaged!

Our Cultural, artistic and historic treasures are in danger, as well as people, property, forested areas etc. and the beauty of Calfornia is being terribly scarred. 

This Kinkade Fire is real close, too close for comfort, that is sure!

The State of California is run by Democratic liberals who have been more concerned about gender sensitivity then running the state to maximize saftey, prosperity and traditional American values and fiscal responsibility. They wasted billions on a fast train system going nowhere now.

PLEASE PRAY! PLEASE COOPERATE AND BE SUBJECT TO GOD'S WILL WHICH IS FOR THESE DESTRUCTIONS TO CEASE. THERE IS NO PROFIT TO ANYONE EXCEPT LUCIFER WHO COMES TO STEAL, KILL AND DESTROY.

Explain to me how someone who has the manifestations of many fruits of the flesh can have the ear of God? Not to mention a lawbreaker. 

In reference to paragraphs 1, 7, 8 & 9:

Yes, I will certainly raise this up in prayer.

In reference to paragraphs 3 ("According to Elijah,..." etc.) & 4 ("God honored my belief and prayers despite Elijah's opinion. I suppose he is not happy that I, my house, other people here were not killed or injured including fire men etc. and that half of Cobb houses, its businesses, school, and the forest was not completely destroyed?")

What is the matter with you, James? 

When Freedom In Him began a thread complaining about the constant fighting between you and Elijah you said, "I am not contributing to the problem now and will not do so". You went on to state, "I have taken myself out of the equation. There is some bitter in-fighting among membership here even so. That is not my doing."

In another thread you stated that you would not respond to Elijah and on another occasion you stated that you were "done with" Elijah. Now here we are with you (once again) trying to pick a fight with Elijah... why? Why do you keep doing this? It seems as if you are not happy unless you are fighting with him. You, and Elijah, have both been rebuked for this constant bickering between the two of you where you trade the same insults back and forth. Yet here you are, supposedly making a post requesting prayer but at the same time devaluing your own thread by using it as an opportunity to attack another poster without reason. Who is the first to respond? Of course, Elijah plays straight into your hands and off we go again.

So, James, what is the real purpose this thread? Are you requesting that we pray for you and others potentially in the path of this fire, or is it just another excuse to start a flame war? This is not the behaviour of a converted Christian.

In relation to "This is not bragging time" you may want to consider how paragraphs 2, 4 & 6 come across. If this is a genuine plea for prayer you may want to consider deleting paragraphs 2-6 & 10.

Luke 22:32 "...when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren."

JohnB. The main emphasis is the need for prayer. California is in great trauma.

Yes, I brought up Elijah’s position, as his position and opposition to deliverance from fire, death and destruction is completely contrary to the spirit of God, the love for fellow mankind as well as believers etc. His accusations of Satanism were without foundation. My points about cooperation with God and His energizing the manifestations via His spirit is instructive. My continual desire and hope is that believers will rise up and operate the nine manifestations of holy spirit, which every born again Christian has already received, though seldom utilized. They are profitable which is an understatement. God answered my prayers and countless other’s prayers and worked in marvelous ways including nine straight hours of rain which allowed the firemen to bring the Valley fire under control.

To call God’s saving of Cobb Satanic, is blasphemy against the holy spirit. It also falsely implicated Pastor Norcross as being Satanic by association. Pastor Norcross prayed with me when the fire started, he called out the angels who held the Cobb Mountain ridge. In addition he has done tremendous work in Africa of instructing over 11,000 pastors in hearing the still small voice of God and in manifesting the nine manifestations of holy spirit.

The pharisees falsely accused Jesus and his followers of working with/by the Devil. Those that oppose God’s manifestations that are sorely needed by the body of Christ by ignorance, fear, unbelief and false accusation such as Elijah’s are counter-productive of God’s will that believers manifest the power of God in the love of God.

I am sick of the accusations by Elijah, and has he put his life in danger lately or at any time for the Gospel’s sake? What has he accomplished other than accusing me of not only being a Satanist, but also mentally ill. He has made fun of speaking in tongues by referring to me as happy clapper etc. This is also blasphemy against God’s holy spirit, as James French did not make up speaking in tongues, nor do I speak gibberish as he also accuses. I speak in numerous (diverse kinds of tongues) which are actual languages, some recognizable as French, Arabic, Pacific Islander etc. This is impossible to do with freedom of will except by the spirit of God. Tongues are a sign of supernatural operation by the spirit. The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets (freedom of will is not compromised). God established the nine manifestations of holy spirit, they need to be utilized and respected as holy operations.

I have devoted my life to God and have specialized in the sacred secrets revealed to Paul which also includes the manifestations of holy spirit. I have been attacked and countless times my life has been in danger for the Gospel’s sake, that is true and not bragging. God is my witness of these facts. People are dying, suffering illness, not benefitting from edification, comfort, exhortation, as well as not receiving revelation guidance, knowledge and wisdom, as well as signs and wonders that give God the glory. 

None of you really know me, have never met me, nor witnessed me manifest holy spirit. There are many myths and false beliefs about the manifestations of holy spirit. Most Christians have never in their lifetime witnessed, let alone manifested holy spirit. This is in stark contrast to the Book of Acts and the first century church in doctrine and practice.

If you people knew and witnessed what I have seen, heard, experienced and done with God over many decades, of the wonderful deliverances, prophesies etc., and were blessed and comforted, and protected etc., if you only knew what you were missing, you would know that the spirit of God is not to be afraid of, for God does not give or do anything bad. Those that have not manifested holy spirit have no conception, and about this subject are groping in the dark. My pointing out the foolishness of Elijah’s statements is to show the illogic of the opposition to the spirit of God as he manifests it. A friend of mine who is SDA dares not reveal his ability to speak in tongues due to the reactions that would follow. Another SDA friend who receives much revelation including discerning of spirits is attacked and ridiculed and even called mentally ill by fellow SDA church-goers. Those that actually walk by the spirit are attacked and ridiculed by those who do not walk by the spirit. Those that walk by the spirit judge by the spirit, and not by the flesh.

It is interesting that no one other than I have pointed out the illogic of Elijah’s attacking the deliverance and miracles that saved Cobb and its inhabitants and property, but rather I am attacked as counterfeit and as bragging egotist. My testimony is true, and the spirit of God is what I rely on to walk by the spirit and to manifest the spirit of God to wake up the dead Christian churches. As long as Christians look to their denomination as their ‘church’ instead of the one body of Christ and Christ in every believer, and refuse to walk by the spirit of God, they will remain ineffectual because of not following God’s way.

Those that do not walk by the spirit and operate the manifestations of holy spirit have no conception or clue and retain many false ideas or even stand in opposition to God’s desire to His workings among the people. Christians often oppose what God’s will is, in essence they are opposed to the very spirit that is the holy spirit that is in them, in a dormant state for the most part at best, the Christ in them trying to get out into manifestation to bring God’s solutions, inspiration and guidance. It is foolish not to walk by the spirit, that is what we are directed to do.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE FIRE SITUATION, AS WELL AS THE IMPEACHMENT SITUATION THREATENING TO DIVIDE THIS COUNTRY INTO OPEN CIVIL WAR. LOOK, I AM CRITICAL OF CHRISTIANITY IN GENERAL AND OF SOME SDA DOCTRINE AND PRACTICE. BUT I ALSO WANT THE BEST FOR THE SDA BELIEVERS, INCLUDING HEALING, DELIVERANCE. FROM OPPRESSION BY THE DEVIL ETC. I LOVE THE BELIEVERS THEMSELVES THOUGH I DISLIKE THE UNBELIEF THAT IS ESTABLISHED. I PRAY FOR MANY SDA, MANY ARE MY FRIENDS HERE AND IN PERSON. I DO NOT KNOW IT ALL, WITH 44 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND STUDY I AM STILL DISCOVERING AMAZING THINGS AS GOD AND THE SCRIPTURES REVEAL. MY HOPE FOR THE SDA CHURCH AS WELL AS GENERAL CHRISTIANITY IS THAT THEY WOULD LEARN TO WALK AS IN THE BOOK OF ACTS. I HAVE ONLY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE, EVEN WITH 44 YEARS OF EFFORT. 

PLEASE STOP OPPOSING GOD’S SPIRIT THAT LIVES INSIDE OF YOU, BUT RATHER HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE GOD TO WALK LIKE THE CHURCH IN THE BOOK OF ACTS, IT IS GOD’S PATTERN AND EXAMPLES THAT WE SHOULD LEARN FROM.

Kinkade Fire update. Lake County is no longer in danger abd is 68% contained. No deaths, 1 minor injury of fireman. Prayers answered. Southern California still a mess with fire/winds. Thanks for prayers.

Praise God. Will continue to keep the situation in prayer.

James said, “The main emphasis is the need for prayer. California is in great trauma.”

Why not make that the sole emphasis? Otherwise you are going to branch the thread off into a totally different direction.

 

James said, “Yes, I brought up Elijah’s position, as his position and opposition to deliverance from fire, death and destruction is completely contrary to the spirit of God

But your opinion on Elijah has nothing to do with this thread. This goes against forum rules 7 & 8. Elijah had not expressed any opinion in this thread, you just began the thread by attacking him. Why did you feel a need to do that?

 

James said, “To call God’s saving of Cobb Satanic

But this is an argument that goes back to 2015 – why do you need to bring it up now, in the opening post? This seems to be a habit with you, James. You keep digging up arguments from the past, from years ago, and re-running them over and over again. Why do you need to do this? Are you unable to move on? It comes across as if you are unable to cope with criticism of yourself whilst you are very quick to criticise others.

 

James said, “I am sick of the accusations by Elijah

But he hasn’t made any accusation in this thread as this is the opening post of the thread. Why do you need to bring up an argument from four years ago? Is it just to start a fight? I reminded you that you said, "I am not contributing to the problem now and will not do so". You also said that, "I have taken myself out of the equation. There is some bitter in-fighting among membership here even so. That is not my doing."

Obviously it *is* your doing as you have begun a thread requesting prayer by dragging up an old argument and restating an accusation against Elijah.

I speak only for myself but I will say that personally I am sick of the constant whining and repetition of old arguments that comes from you. Seriously, you need to get over it and move on.

 

James said, “If you people knew and witnessed…”

You people? Seriously? Do you really think that is a non-confrontational approach?

 

James said, “It is interesting that no one other than I have pointed out the illogic of Elijah’s…”

No, what is interesting is that, having said that you were “done with” Elijah you begin the thread by attacking him. Why? You object if anyone attacks you whilst happily attacking others – this is a hypocritical stance to take. You accuse others of being mentally ill, demonic, without the Holy Spirit, etc., whilst being outraged if anyone says the same thing to you. I’ve told you before, James, you are the author of your own destruction and this is why you are ineffectual in this forum. You said that you would not be the one to start a fight yet here you are doing exactly that. Is it really so hard to subdue self?

Rather than repeating your “qualifications” over and over again why not teach by example? Right now the example you display is that of an unconverted man, a man who seriously needs to be broken at the foot of the cross. James, I pray that one day you will understand what I write to you. Learn from the meek and mild Jesus and follow Him.

2 Timothy 2:16  "And avoid empty words in which there is no benefit, for they will all the more add to the wickedness of those who converse in them."

.,JohnB:

Practically every time I post, Elijah attacks. Because I am referring to another situation similar to 2015 Valley Fire, wherein he accused falsely of the deliverance being of Satan, I defensively stated what Elijah states about deliverance from fire. If people believe him, they won’t believe me and would ignore anything I have to say as a Satanist and counterfeit. My stating what is still Elijah’s opinion was to show its illogic, as God did and wants to deliver as we do our part, by praying in faith.

Elijah stood and stands in opposition to deliverance from God that he claims is Satanic. He is still opposed and is blaspheming the holy spirit, and even makes fun of the holy spiritual manifestation of speaking in tongues which is also blasphemy against the holy spirit. There are different ways people can blaspheme the holy spirit; such as 1: claiming the works or spirit of God is of the Devil, as Jesus was accused of,  but also 2. if a person not only rejects the holy spirit, but sells out to Lucifer by making him God, and becomes a child of the Devil by faith in Lucifer. The final one is not remedied when a person crosses a certain point spiritually. Many people are influenced either ignorantly or knowingly by the Devil and even spend years in Satanism and have not crossed that line, they can still be saved.

I have not accused Elijah of not being saved, but I have prayed for him and warned him of his form of blasphemies. To know from the spirit and not judging by the flesh, a person can receive discerning of spirits which is revelation from God to know the spiritual state of a person.

Yes, in anticipation of Elijah’s attacks I defensively stated his opinion. Other people state what others past opinions were in discussion. Besides being a child of God who has the spirit of God, I also am human and do not like being accused of being of Satan. As I stated, my life and limb has been in danger countless times. That is not boasting, but testimony of God’s deliverance which I am thankful for, as I am alive today because of God.

James said, "Practically every time I post, Elijah attacks."

The important word here is "practically". I get it, you assumed that Elijah would attack you and so you decided on a pre-emptive strike. But there were other alternatives, after all, you could have run the risk as to whether Elijah would attack you or not. What would the Christian response be?

"But I am saying to you, you shall not rise up against an evil person, but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him also the other." (Matthew 5:39)

James said, "Elijah stood and stands in opposition to deliverance from God that he claims is Satanic."

If that is so then I am sure that God can deal with him. However, Elijah's principle is correct. Satan can cause calamities and can remove them. However, when you respond by attacking him, or even giving a pre-emptive strike, you aid Elijah and prove him right. What does the Bible say about some people making claims of operating 'the spirit'?

"It is not everyone that says to me, 'My Lord, my Lord'', who enters the Kingdom of Heaven, but whoever does the will of my Father who is in Heaven. Many will say to me in that day, 'My Lord, my Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, and in your name have cast out demons, and have done many mighty works in your name? 'And then I will confess to them, 'I have never known you, remove yourselves far from me, you workers of evil.'" (Matthew 7:21-23)

What does the Bible say should be our response to people making claims? Are we supposed to take them at their word?

"Examine everything and hold what is excellent." (1 Thessalonians 5:21) In fact, we should not just take anyone's word but rather be like the Bereans "For those Jews who were there were nobler than those Jews who were in Thessaloniqa, and they were hearing gladly from the word every day while they were distinguishing from Scripture whether these things were so." (Acts 17:11)

If you know SDAs you will know that SDAs typically do not accept any man's word for something but test everything according to Scripture.

James said, "Besides being a child of God who has the spirit of God, I also am human and do not like being accused of being of Satan."

I understand but, as you said, you hadn't been accused of anything - it was a pre-emptive strike. It is also a contradictory statement. It is the humanity that needs to be renounced so that the Spirit of God may take over.

"All that is in The Messiah is therefore The New Creation; the old order has passed away to such.And everything has become new from God -- he who reconciled us to himself in The Messiah, and he has given us the Ministry of the reconciliation." (2 Corinthians 5:17-18)
 

The pre-emptive strike is a sign that the Holy Spirit is not in control.

EGW said this:

A very impressive scene was presented before me. I seemed to awake from sleep but was not in my home. From the windows, I could behold a terrible conflagration. Great balls of fire were falling upon houses, and from these balls, fiery arrows were flying in every direction. It was impossible to check the fires that were kindled, and many places were being destroyed. The terror of the people was indescribable. {OFC 350.6}
