Devil’s Food!

I don’t know much about Angle’s Food, or Devil’s Food, but as a Christian I sure do know what it’s like for the Devil to stop on by and want to take a bite out you for Lunch!

Well, it’s Day 14 of our Daniel Fast.
I don’t know about you, but it hasn’t been a “piece of cake” for me. There’s been alot of garbage that’s been boiling up to the surface of my spirit. And it didn’t stop there! Unfortunately it has erupted on others also. “Congratulations Robb, welcome to the human race!”

At times on this Fast I have forgotten what we are actually doing. It’s not just changing what we ate, but it’s about entering, [and engaging in], a massive Spiritual War! Demonic spirits that used to fluff your pillow for you as you allowed your Bible to collect dust on your night stand are now screaming at you, “STOP PRAYING AND FASTING!!”

With only 7 days left remember to give yourself grace. When your flesh tries to rise up, remind yourself that invisable forces are coming at you, and that it’s not just “you” having a “bad day”. The half-brother of our Lord has a few things that have been helping me:

1. SUBMIT TO GOD… [“Jesus, in all this, I confess that You are Lord. I’m not going to let my flesh dominate. You are with me even when I don’t feel it. You are ruling and reining right now in my life.”]

2. RESIST THE DEVIL… [Sometimes this isn’t so much as addressing the Enemy directly as it is “resisting” him. Thru your spirit, and your emotions, you resist the temptation to eat, to react in the flesh.]

3. AND HE WILL FLEE… [You aren’t “prgrammed” to fail! Your New Man on the inside of you is actually “programmed” to WIN!! If you haven’t seen the enemy flee in a while, NOW IS THE TIME!! Submit, Resist, and Demons Flee!!!]

Be Strong! Finish Strong! Fasting Together With You!!

Changed by “The Look”

Have you ever had someone give you one of those “looks”? You know what I’m talking about, because when they do you feel their eyes piercing through into your heart.

“All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth?” Lamentations 2:15 KJV

As the Children of Israel are being invaded by the barbaric Babylonian forces Jeremiah’s tears begin to fall. Although this mighty prophet told them this judgment of God would take place still his heart breaks over their blatant disobedience. Jeremiah isn’t one of these, “I-told-you-so kind of Christians”. His heart is genuine – it’s the very heart of God. Remember Peter after denying the Lord? You would have thought that Jesus would have given him the cold stare of death, but His eyes conveyed an understanding that crushed the heart of this rugged fisherman [Luke 22:61]. Through all his mistakes Peter still remained one of His favorite disciples. How do we know? After Jesus rose from the dead He singled Peter out as He spoke those grace-drenched words, “…and Peter” [Mark 16:7].

Have you ever been so convicted by the Lord, that you just buried your face in the palm of your hands? Have you ever been so embarrassed by your friends who caught you in the very act of rebellion against the Lord as they said, “but… I thought you were a Christian…”? If they didn’t say the words, they sure did give you “the look”. It’s the look that will either cause you to give up and go back to the world, or give up and go back to carrying your cross.

The bottom line is that God has called us His own. Are we going to make mistakes? Yes. Are we going to do stupid things that the world will point their fingers at us, and mock us because we haven’t been faithful to our Lord? Probably so. But in it all I want to see the look of grace from the Lord, and remember that there’s always mercy and forgiveness with Lord. As Peter was crushed with “the look” it was the very thing that caused him to rise up like never before and formed him into the man of God that was so mightily used of God in the early Church. We, too, can be changed and renewed if we allow the Lord to look into our hearts today.

“Daniel, You’re My Brother…”

If you’re on the 21-Day Daniel Fast together with us I want to let you know that God is going move on your behalf. He sees that you are sacrificing yourself to draw closer to Him. Don’t lose heart or give up. Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus! [2 Tim. 2:1].

Don’t let “Daniel” be an enemy. God is using him to get all that flesh OUT of you. He’s turning on the fire to boil-away all the impurities in our lives. Don’t turn off the oven! Don’t put out the fire! Let God do what He wants to do, because at the end of these 21-Days, [if you endure till the end…] you’re going to be a totally different person! So, the next time you’re chompin’ down on that carrot say, “Daniel… you’re not my enemy, you’re my brother!”

Fasting Together With You!!

Feeling like a “spiritual-slacker”?

If you feel like you have been a “spiritual-slacker” lately then I’ve got just the thing that will revitalize your relationship with God!!

Starting this Friday we’re going on a 21-Day “DANIEL FAST”

JOIN THE 21-DAY FAST!!

A “Daniel Fast” is when you abstain from “Pleasant Food” [Daniel 10:3], and eat only fruit, vegetables, nuts, etc. [Just click on the link above and you’ll see a Bulletin at the bottom of the page with alot more info]. But someone once said…

“Drastic times require drastic measures.”

You don’t have to go the full 21 days. You can do a meal here and there, and perhaps the 2 week you can go a couple days. The point is to do something. “…deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Jesus!”

You and I are living in a time where this world is literally collapsing around us, and if your heart isn’t strengthened, and if you aren’t as close to God as you think you are…. you won’t be able to make it. You say, “how absurd!?” Really? Jesus Christ, Himself – fully God, fully man went on a 40-Day Fast because He knew the severity of living in this sin-soaked world. If you & I don’t stand strong for Christ in the day-and-age that we’re living in we’re going to be swept off our feet with the ever-increasing tide of sin.

The time to stop it is now! It’s time for a change! Join our 21-Day Fast today!

Join us on a 21-Day “Daniel Fast”!

Starting Friday October 3 UNITED YOUTH is going on a 21-Day Fast. It’s based upon the Word of God [found in the Book of Daniel chapter 10:2-21]. The “Daniel Fast” consists mainly of fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and avoids “pleasant food” such as: meats, junk-food [or sweets of any kind], leavened bread, carbonated drinks, etc.

If you have MySpace you can join our group here: http://groups.myspace.com/unitedyouthfast

WHY ARE WE FASTING?

1. BECAUSE IT’S BIBLICAL. [Everone mightily used of God in the Bible Fasted, including Jesus.]

2. BECAUSE WE WANT TO BE DIFFERENT. [Moses was transformed during a 40-Day Fast, Daniel saw his prayers answered & demonic forces thwarted thru a 21-Day Fast, When Jesus got done Fasting He was tremendously empowered by the Holy Spirit.]

3. BECAUSE WE WANT TO SEE A GENERATION SAVED. [Just prior to any mighty move of God in History you always see 2 things: Prayer & Fasting. We’re hungry to see a move of God in Chicago amongst the Youth.]

4. BECAUSE UNITED YOUTH MINISTY MUST GO FORWARD! [Our Youth Ministry must continue to be build by the Spirit of God, and not man’s method’s or ideas. We believe this Ministry is God’s Work and must be conducted God’s way, and therefore we yield & humble ourselves just like the great men & women did back in the Bible.]

5. BECAUSE WE WANT TO SEE EVANGEL BLESSED! [As we Fast & pray we’re believing that God is going to rain-down His power & glory upon our Chuch, our Pastors, Rev. Ray & Adrienne Berryhill, and every single Leader & Member of Evangel World Outreach Center!

If you belong to another Church – it’s OK. Just keep your Youth, Pastor, and Church in prayer during the next 21 days.
