The HEY! Series

1. “HEY, WHY ARE YOU RUNNING ‘ROUND NAKED?”... when God has a closet full of clothes for you to wear! “Huh? What’s that mean?” you ask.
In the Bible, dozens of times the LORD uses the word "garment," and speaks of our “putting on” and “taking off,” being naked, unclean, filthy, and even stinking! But, He's got us covered if we learn how to bathe and dress ourselves! Since we first sinned and were naked – vulnerable – to the enemy, the LORD has provided many protective coverings for us. Unlike the clothes we wear just to cover our nakedness, His garments - like the full armor of God (Eph 6) - have supernatural powers! Is it redundant, therefore, to speculate He wants us to - and is ready to help us - clean up our acts?
2. “HEY! WHO TOLD YOU THAT? WHO TOLD YOU THOSE LIES?”... lies like, "You shall not surely die" (Gen 3:4) stated by the serpent to the woman in the beginning.
Yes, for thousands of years, man’s been buying lies – hot air! – not knowing Truth from a lie which itself is a problem, but the bigger problem is we don’t know it’s a problem! Whew! Let’s shine the light of Truth on lies. Let’s get a hold of the TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD and the love, mercy, grace, and power resident in it.
"What?!! How dare you?" Please don't take offense, but God did make us with two eyes to see, two ears to hear, yet only one mouth for talking. Think He might be telling us something? Yes, it's a wonderful concept to be quiet to hear His still small voice.
When communication is taught, it's usually to instruct how to talk, not listen. This is a great teaching to help you not only listen better to others, but yourself, as well (and, that can be a real eye opener!). "But the tongue can no man tame..." (Jas 3:80).
“The thief (devil; Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” Jesus enlightened us in John 10:10.
My Family (I'm the little one with the sax)
The LORD has shown me how Satan is powerless to our prayers prayed scripturally when we understand the Biblical principles set forth in this teaching. But, WARNING!! DO NOT TRY THIS ALONE! (Hey: You don’t have to, because Jesus and the Holy Spirit will make intercession with you.)
