DO NOT MAKE MY FATHER'S HOUSE A HOUSE OF MERCHANDISE - HOUSE OF PRAYER

DO NOT MAKE MY FATHER'S HOUSE A MARKET PLACE!
DO NOT MAKE MY FATHER'S HOUSE A MARKET PLACE!

DO NOT MAKE MY FATHERS HOUSE A MARKETPLACE!

A true story: If God looks at your hubs, what will He see,but even more important, if Satan takes a stroll through your hubs and or website, what will he see? Why is this important? In this story I will tell you of a latest event that happened to me, you may then review your own site and opinions, I just tell it like it is. For the spiritually advanced, you may confer with God Himself or put Satan to the test and find the results for yourself, which will be best after all. Experience usually out weighs book knowledge.

Read further before you just say Satan will see Jesus!

About two years ago, I woke up one night and heard two Angels talk. They said that they needed to pray for my website which will come under attack by Satan. God told them so. At that time my website was hardly up and running and with only a few pages not saying too much either, I thought they were a bit too over sensitive. I laughed at them, saying that Satan will think we are sissies. But they ignored me, walked off a few meters and holding hands they started to pray. Quickly I remembered the verse, where two or three agree in My Name, so I went to join them in prayer. They did not hold any grudge against me for laughing and immediately and lovingly they opened up their arms and let me join in prayer with them.

At that time I asked God; “this is Your website, what do You want me to title it?” This exact title came to mind and stayed there up to this day.

DEDICATED TO GOD MOST HIGH - MARLIZA GUNTER (Spiritual Testimonials)

The first part – Dedicated to God Most High – states that this site is God’s site and is made holy.

The second part – Marliza Gunter – adding my name as a reminder of a fulfillment of one of God’s personal promises to me.

The third part – Spiritual Testimonials – my calling and gifting.

Time went by and nothing happened to the website and I started to write on hub pages. I almost got no traffic and no reader popularity. This bothered me and I asked God if something is wrong with my writing,the people do not wish to hear what great secrets You have to tell them. I petitioned God to tell me what He wants me to write and to endow my pages with His Spirit. Well God honored my request, but I did not know this because I could not see people flooding in or Google rankings picking up and so forth. I looked to earthly signs to validate the spiritual power of my hubs and website. This was wrong and soon God showed me the truth.

Two weeks ago, Satan pitched up in my room. He was angry and irritated. He said in a strong voice; “do you really dare to come up against me?!! I will show you just how evil I am!!” He told me; “I will attack your sites and exactly 1000 Christians will fall because of you. I will lead them away,into me!” At that point I was angered and wanted to jump into him and fight and defeat him from the inside,but for the first time ever, God strongly withheld me with His powerful Holy Spirit force. God said; “not now, you will surely die if you dive into the depths of Satan now!” Satan laughed, but looked relieved that God has held me back. Maybe because it could’ve ended up worse for him if God did accompany me with His Most High Glory into the deep darkness of Satan. (Deep darkness of Satan –its like out in space, everything is pitch black and you cannot even see your hand in front of your face. It’s filled with excruciating pain, evil, horror, fear, weakness, powerlessness, and lonesomeness. It’s the place where you are lost, no road map, no way out, no ending. Not the place any human, no matter how hard and strong, would wish to be.) Right in front of me he pulled up a screen and viewed my website and hubs and all of its contents. There was a golden light shining from the two sites. This light that shined irritated his eyes and he did not wish to take too long to read the content. He sounded extremely annoyed with me and said sarcastically; “You look just like your Father!! These pages looks just like God!! You have no idea just how evil I can be!!” Without lifting a finger to hurt me, he just yelled these few sentences at me and turned around and left. I did not even get a chance to say something back.

Concerning those 1000 Christians, I already prayed for them and am currently standing on certain promises that God Himself made with me.

Concerning my website – only when Satan stood exact opposite my website, only then could I clearly see that it was specifically the title that are in war with Satan. The fact,that it is dedicated to God Most High.

DEDICATED TO GOD MOST HIGH - MARLIZA GUNTER (Spiritual Testimonials)

Concerning my hubs – it was the way I tell the truth in my own words of who God really is. My spiritual knowledge into God Himself and telling the people what I know, was the detonator to the ticking bomb that God foresaw two years ago.

So a time of intense prayer came. I said to God, well You see that Satan is on my tail feathers now, what must I do to step up the holiness of my sites? In a moment God answered me. He reminded me of the scripture; “do not make My Fathers house a market place” . I had a lot of Amazon and other advertisements on my pages, hoping to make a few bucks since I really need the money for internet and stuff. God with His kind heart let me understand, that this is not only about Him or me for that matter, but He knows Satan will see the Amazon adverts and go irritate my Father with these accusations and since Father is Fair and Just, He must acknowledge if Satan is correct. So I honored Fathers advice and went back and deleted all personally placed adverts. No more buying or selling or even to ask for donations. No more advertising of any other thing that money is the root of.

Concerning Satan – with these words; “You look just like your Father!!These pages looks just like God!! You have no idea just how evil I can be!!” he gave me my most valued compliment and personal testimony ever! I said to God, if I ask You what You think of me, my life, my written pages, I know You, You would be kind and say something nice, because You love me and You are not the criticizing sort. But now, Your biggest enemy has this to say about me. I think this is Your best compliment to Your Glory, that Your enemy should say I look just like You. Thus forever will I pull up Satan’s words up as testimony on my behalf before You and when Satan has ever again something to say against me, I will remind him of his words he spoke this day, stating and agreeing that I look just like You and my writings portray Your most Loving Glory.

May God protect and bless those who read these pages. May God reveal Himself to you and make known His Love for you. May God impart into you His Glory and His Spirit. May God give you everlasting joy and happiness. In Jesus Righteous Name , Amen

Scriptures


Isa 56:7 KJVR Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.

Joh 2:14-17 KJVR And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: (15) And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; (16) And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise. (17) And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

Mat 21:12-13 KJVR And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, (13) And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

THE PRAYER FOR SALVATION

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

If you wish to receive this Love of God and be one of His very own children and want to go to heaven for ever; if you wish to be free; if you wish for Jesus to help you with everything in your life; and if you do not belong to Jesus Christ yet, pray the following saying the words out loud:

Lord Jesus Christ, I welcome You as my Lord and Savior. I invite You to come live my heart. I ask and thank You for the forgiveness of all my sins. I ask to teach me about You and Your ways. Thank You Lord that I now belong to the Kingdom of Heaven. I receive You now. In Jesus Name, Amen.


Celebrate, you now belong to the Kingdom of Heaven and are a rightful child of God Himself!!

Marliza wonderful! Looking like Him, yeah. I solved my problem differently. I developed in me character of thanksgiving for everything of course only for good. Then I do not write for money, just for Hi glory. The joy of the Lord is my strength.

Bless you sis.

If Satan said that 1000 christians will fall because of you...then you have little to be afraid of...because he is a liar and the father of lies...keep going sister...I have not put ads on my site (not because I am afraid of cheating jesus)...I just haven't figured out how to do it...if I did and were to rely on it (instead of God) then I would be wrong...because our faith should be in his increase...but you must do as God leads you...Blessings.

An incredible (but believable) experience. Certainly an eye-opener and I now have to review my own site. Are you saying that you are now not attempting to make any money on your site and that you expect God to bless you financially through other avenues? Another aspect to consider is that "the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just" and the internet is one of the legitimate means of transferring that wealth, which belongs to God anyway.

Hi MG thank you for sharing your experience with us. It is certainly something to think about. I personally would never have even heard of hubs if i had not been doing a work from home course.

I knew that i had to write about something but had no idea what. I decided i would write about the only thing i knew best. My God. I had no idea how many people shared my chosen topic and believe fully that this was no accident. God is far more powerful than the enemy who is nothing but a liar. I'm not saying anything against your experience but i do believe with the magnitude of people on the net that our hubs can reach, the enemy will be annoyed. I myself believe that united we stand. If we are divided ( which is what he wants) then we fall. If 1000 people fall dear sister it is not because of what you have done. It is because they were never following God properly and being aware of the enemies attack. Hang in there sister, let God alone guide you and let us Spread Gods teachings to all who will read them. Hugs and blessings

Mind Matters...thank you for your comment...yes...I testify to God's Glory on these pages, thus teaching and or preaching, thus it could also be called my Fathers House...I give Living Bread to the hungry, thus no money changing is aloud...If I wrote about something else, it would be a different story...yes...God does give us the riches of the wicked...but we are not aloud to merchandise with God, His Gifts and His bread which He gives freely...I trust God to bless me by His promise to me in my musical direction...this would carry God's blessing since this was His own words to me...what did Father God tell you...HOW would he bless you? If in doubt...hehe...then ask Him..He would not mind...

Many blessings to you... :)

Loves to Read...thank you so much for your comment...yes...I figured Satan wanted me to delete my hubs in fear of those 1000 Christians, but then I remembered how it was with Martin Luther and God's Bible, how Satan also attacked God's writings and led many astray through false religions..but God did not fear Satan and stopped the most popular Book ever...In fact..God promised that those who truly depend on Him with an upright heart, He would most surely protect them from the enemy and their own weaknesses...God is Great!!

Be blessed friend.. :)

I have a day job that supports me and my family by the grace Of God. I’m not convinced it is possible to make any significant money from hubbing anyway. As for adding adverts I wouldn’t know how, and I’m not interested in finding out. When I read hubs by other people I ignore the adverts as background noise and never click any links.

For me hubbing is a means to communicate what I believe the Father wants me to say. If people read them or don’t read them, that’s not my problem, its God’s. As for Satan, can’t say I’m bothered as my life is in the hands of the Father.

Hi Marliza-yes satan paid you the best compliment ever saying that you look just like your Father-this hub was confirmation for me that I should continue with the mindset I have of not advertising for money-I started writing my daily inspirational messages on hub pages for the purpose of sharing God's Word with more people-before I started the hub page (and I still do now) I sent out a short daily inspirational text to a few of my family and friends, but I wanted to be able to reach a larger audience, so that's why I started the hubs-the purpose was and still is for me to spread God's Word and for Him to be glorified, not for me to make money-it's good to see there are like-minded people out there-keep up the good work!

In my opinion, it takes a strong Christian in the Lord to write Christian Hubs!!!! The enemy does't like it at ALL!! I have prayer warriors and myself praying over all the work I put out because I mostly expose the enemy in alot of my post! One time he even whispered in my ear evil things to persuade me not to write! I do supply tips to visitors and my Christian CD and Christian Book, I am an Artist/Author. I use to feel it was wrong to want to make money as a Pastor but I soon realized that having a gift from God is a honor and being rewarded for your works is well with Him. And if I don't make nothing, the pray has always been, "Give us this day our daily bread." If I had enough for one day, I will always had enough. God know the heart of each individual, he knows if your true in Him or fake! Much love!!!!! GREAT HUB!!!

Thank you Carlotta for your visit and comment...I am not one to eagerly promote other hubs...but this hub is for sure worth reading...take a look at it...the day before I found this hub, the Lord gave me Ps 119:4.."For thou has commanded us to keep Thy precepts"...then I found this hub...so true to who Jesus actually is..."If you keep My commandments, you will stay in My love"

Amen Sister on a superb hub all in the Name of Jesus Christ. God is so awesome. He dealt with me too about the hubs. He is my paycheck. I work for him. He will provide. It sank deep into my heart. Amazon, hub pages, google do not pay me Christ does. We are here to be fishers of men. Money is mighty fine but God owns it all any way. His blessings are eternal. He will provide our needs. The Devil is Doomed We have victory because Christ defeated the enemy for us.

I finished a hub 'ready to fight the fight' I was under Spiritual Attack I did not realize it for a bit of time. It is my experience and how Christ worked. He is awesome

We are winners not loosers. The enemy knows he is going to the pit of hell.

Christ is Love, Victory, Truth, Light, The Way.

Thank You for sharing your stories. They are powerful and heartfelt. I know Christ touch's many through you. He is the best boss one could ever have in all of life yesterday, today and tommorow, Anen Sister. Love N Hugs

ALL GLORY TO GOD

Very, very important Hub! Drpastorcarlotta is right - the enemy doesn't like us writing about God and love. The enemy doesn't want us to hold churches accountable for focusing on money and not on people.

What wonderful comments are in the Hub!

Blessings to you and your family!
