Discovering the REAL YOU

Finding God's Gift of well-being. God is in the business of character building, not quick-fix solutions to our problems. If we evolved from animals, we must look down to the animals to understand our behavior. However, when we turn to the Bible, we discover that is not the picture at all. Rather, we fell from God and the only way we can understand ourselves is to look up to God and see how far we have fallen. The harder you try to feel good about yourself, the more you are focused on self.




Ron's Reflections

THE EL MATADOR STORY

9/17/2021 3:26:00 PM BY Ron Susek


A friend recently requested a copy of The El Matador Story that I wrote in February of 2016. Knowing the dangers of this hour, I want to reprint it for you in today’s edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.
THE EL MATADOR STORY
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

Read Carefully
…and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. 
For the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hand.”

(1 Samuel 17:47)

Intercession is the need of the hour. Here is a vital analogy intercession. Imagine a father whose children ignore his warnings not to play in the center of a bull ring. A surly bull enters, snorts and digs at the ground in preparation to charge. The father races between the bull and his children. That is intercession. The children may escape, but the father may perish. 

The father can only be saved by someone of greater ability to fight the bull. Thus enters, El Matador. He strides with poise, stops beside the father, arches his back, lures the bull with a red cape and points his sword downward at the bull. Staring confidently at the agitated beast he asks the father, "Are your children safely out of the arena?" 

"Yes."

"Then stand still. The battle is mine. I will fight the bull." Now there is hope for both the father and children to survive unscathed.

Intercession means standing in prayer between heaven's throne and the bullish hierarchy of hell. The "bull" named Lucifer is a merciless murderer and liar. Unlike an animal, he knows how humans think. He cunningly produces fear be intimidation. His foreboding presence empties the arena of a sense of hope. Doom drops like a curtain.

Intercession is war. During such ominous hours, you must stand firm by raw faith, confident that "El Matador" [i.e. Jesus Christ] will deliver you. Paul describes the victor's strength: "Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us…" (Ephesians 3:20-21).

Paul was not a euphoric novice, but rather a man who said he "fought with beasts" at Ephesus. He is most likely referencing the demonic powers that battled against him through Demetrius the silversmith, an evil man who stirred great trouble against him (Acts 19).

Paul reported how he prayed: "For this reason I bow my knees before the Father…that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being…" (Ephesians 3:14-16).

Paul called upon the Great Victor who possesses all-surpassing power, to give the Ephesian believers strength to withstand the threatening bull. He knew that the One who overcame the world, the flesh and the devil stands like El Matador beside His people in the arena. You need not fear. The bull cannot defeat Him.

When you are trapped in the center of a bull ring, and the monster of hell is preparing to charge, fear not! As you pray, the Great Intercessor steps between you and the devil to inflict defeat upon your bullish enemy from hell. Always remember, the battle is the Lord's.

Always remember: Immanuel: God is with you!

Ron


 

LET GOD SPEAK FOR HIMSELF (Part #1)

Let God Speak for Himself
(Part #1)

Read Carefully and see the prayer at the end.
(Isaiah 59:1-15 NIV)

Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save,
    or his ear dull, that it cannot hear;

2 but your iniquities have made a separation
    between you and your God,
and your sins have hidden his face from you
    so that he does not hear.

3 For your hands are defiled with blood
    and your fingers with iniquity;
your lips have spoken lies;
    your tongue mutters wickedness.

4 No one enters suit justly;
    no one goes to law honestly;
they rely on empty pleas, they speak lies,
    they conceive mischief and give birth to iniquity.

5 They hatch adders' eggs;
    they weave the spider's web;
he who eats their eggs dies,
    and from one that is crushed a viper is hatched.

6 Their webs will not serve as clothing;
    men will not cover themselves with what they make.
Their works are works of iniquity,
    and deeds of violence are in their hands.

7 Their feet run to evil,
    and they are swift to shed innocent blood;
their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
    desolation and destruction are in their highways.

8 The way of peace they do not know,
    and there is no justice in their paths;
they have made their roads crooked;
    no one who treads on them knows peace.

9 Therefore justice is far from us,
    and righteousness does not overtake us;
we hope for light, and behold, darkness,
    and for brightness, but we walk in gloom.

10 We grope for the wall like the blind;
    we grope like those who have no eyes;
we stumble at noon as in the twilight,
    among those in full vigor we are like dead men.

11 We all growl like bears;
    we moan and moan like doves;
we hope for justice, but there is none;
    for salvation, but it is far from us.

12 For our transgressions are multiplied before you,
    and our sins testify against us;
for our transgressions are with us,
    and we know our iniquities:

13 transgressing, and denying the Lord,
    and turning back from following our God,
speaking oppression and revolt,
    conceiving and uttering from the heart lying words.

14 Justice is turned back,
    and righteousness stands far away;
for truth has stumbled in the public squares,
    and uprightness cannot enter.

15 Truth is lacking,
    and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.

The Lord saw it, and it displeased him
    that there was no justice.

Comment: There are many great people living and speaking the truth. The world at large will not open its eyes and ears to the Author of eternal truth. Save yourself and your household. God will save the world. We will see that in the next edition of FaithWalk in Action.

A prayer: Dear merciful heavenly Father, You have clearly revealed the sins of my nation, and of my heart. I confess the stubborn areas of my heart that have refused to obey You. Forgive my sins according to Your promise and bring Your grace upon my household. Open the eyes and ears of our hearts. Bring us to repentance and obedience that we may glorify Your power of redemption. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!

Your friend,
Ron

 

JESUS: THE UNCONQUERABLE

Jesus:  The Unconquerable
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publishers

Not by might, or by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.
(Zechariah 4:6)

        The scene was quizzical to all except those who understood why Jesus entered Jerusalem humbly riding upon a donkey. Jesus was on full display of the angel's words to Zechariah: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. Filled with the Spirit, Jesus need not display power.  He had power! Think about it:

 

  • The devil had no hold on Him (John 14:30).
  • The praise of man could not awaken pride in Him (Matthew 21:9).
  • The Sadducees could not outwit Him (Matthew 22:23-46).
  • Poverty could not hinder Him (Matthew 8:20).
  • Demons and disease could not resist His rebuke (Matthew 8:16).
  • The disciples could not dissuade Him from the cross (Matthew 16:22).
  • The soldiers could not stand before Him (John 18:6).
  • Pilate could find no guilt in Him (John 18:6).
  • The soldiers could not deny that He was the Son of God (Matthew 27:54).
  • The grave was powerless to hold Him (Matthew 28:1-10).
  • The soldiers could not stop His exit from the tomb (Matthew 28:4).
  • Gravity could not oppose His ascension (Luke 24:50-53).
  • No power could hinder His enthronement at God's right hand (Romans 8:34).

        God, who is the Creator and King of the nations, exalted His Son to be the Lord of the nations.  The world is being readied by God to be under the rule of His soon-coming Son (Ephesians 1:9-10).
 
        As Jesus is now established at the right hand of His Father, so you are called to be seated at the right hand of Jesus.  Are you preparing for such a high position?  The key is to live today as Jesus did; rejecting the ways of the world and handling life as did Jesus - Not by might, nor by power, but by my [God's] Spirit.
 
        The world may view you as unimpressive as it did Jesus, clothed in humility and riding on a lowly beast.  But in the end, you will experience the reality that Jesus has overcome the world.
 
        No matter how dark the world becomes, always trust Jesus' words: "In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart; I have overcome the world." (John 16:33).
    
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you.
