A Middle Ground Doesn’t Exist.

REVELATION :

3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

“LUKEWARMS” WHO BELIEVE THEMSELVES TO BE NEUTRAL ARE IN FACT, THE MOST DECEIVED; OFTEN DOING MORE HARM THAN THEY MAY REALIZE…. AND THERE ARE MANY REASONS FOR THIS.

Until you have made a “wilful” Choice for Christ, then by default YOU ARE STILL BEING USED as part of an Anti-Christ agenda. Don’t believe me???
The Battle Is Real BUT the Victory Has Already Been Won

So, here’s what we know

The “True” church, whose members make up the “True” body of Christ has been systematically deceived, oppressed as well as strategically divided, hidden, and isolated, one from another. We have been intricately and systematically woven into the fabric of a perverted, unrighteous and malignant society; one that is organized and set up to support an anti-Christ agenda through its many branches or networks of systems, constructs and institutions that have been designed to manipulate, influence and ultimately control the masses. One of their most effective branches of ironically religion itself. Many of these anti-Christ institutions are literally set up “anti-Christ churches” that covertly operate under a Christian banner. This faction of the anti-Christ agenda has studied the psychology behind the true believer. They understands that by calling themselves “ a church” they have strategically positioned themselves to attract well intended persons “the wheat”, those who are genuinely seeking guidance and proper direction so that they may live in the way that God intended.

They understands that by calling themselves “ a church” they have strategically positioned themselves to attract well intended persons “the wheat”, those who are genuinely seeking guidance and proper direction so that they may live in the way that God intended.

the primary role and purpose of setting up these false churches is to further deceive people by feeding them false truths, otherwise known as doctrines of devils. this is not only happening in the religious institutions. If you look closely, you will begin to see the anti-Christ agenda in and throughout all facets of society, including but not limited to our educational systems, politics, race relations, social matters, economics and government.

This anti-Christ agenda , also referred to as “ the fallen agenda” operates through reinforced systems of control which have been obtained through well-crafted insidious plans that have been modelled and executed through a “ divide and conquer” methodology. once established, a series of fear-based control mechanisms are systematically implemented and enforced to maintain a satanic/luciferin order of control and authority.

this scheme, we recognize is created out of a desperate attempt to stall, delay, or even prevent the second coming of Jesus Christ as prophesied in the bible. Matthew 24:26 But of that day and hour know no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. That being said, by keeping the True Body separated, isolated and afraid, the carefully devised plan of the fallen agenda has been met with some temporary success. Some of the body still do not know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and as for those who do, many are still dependent on worldly systems for their sustenance needs and safety, when we should be looking and relying solely on God. We have forgotten our rightful place of authority in Christ; a position inherited in the receiving of the resurrected Christ Jesus as out our Lord & Saviour.

Our true identity in Christ has been systematically hidden from even ourselves. Some of us have been lost for decades hidden in and throughout many of these world constructs. Each one of us has been raised, assimilated and integrated into one or more of these sophisticated “ networks of systems” that have been designed to keep us from ever receiving salvation and the promise of eternal life received only through following the way of Jesus Christ.

But things are changing. In fact, things are moving, changing, and shifting quite rapidly now. More and More people are hearing the word of god and waking up to the Truth. People all over the world are receiving Christ Jesus as their Lord & Saviour and are being lead further and further into the truth through the indwelling and divine leading of The Holy Spirit.

World conditions are increasingly getting worse. However, those in the body of Christ have been given eyes to see and comprehend the world landscape through revelation understanding. We at Rise and Shine Ministries, New Zealand understands that what is occurring on the world stage is a true reflection of what is happening and manifesting from the spiritual realm. the lord is now speaking to his chosen people. he is preparing us for what is here and what is yet to come into our awareness. We can see there is a host of demonic influences that are running these worldly systems and affecting the lives of the fragmented and controlled masses. The Good news is that the body of Christ has nothing to fear. In truth, there is much to rejoice about.

God is Sovereign. He is in full control and He has always been. Today, the Holy Spirit is more present than ever. We are the Body-temple where the spirit of the Lord resides. The Lord’s sheep are finally waking up to this. We took quite a beating so that we would remain ignorant and dependant on the world and anti-Christ network of systems and institution. But the holy spirit is liberating us into greater truth that can only be found with salvation through Jesus Christ.

So, the body-temple is being rebuilt, healed, and restore, one soul at a time. Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Saviour is King of Kings and he is setting up ministries and appointing faithful servants as instruments and ministers under his direction. In obedience to the perfect leading and dictates of the holy spirit, as members of the true body of Christ, we have been commissioned to evangelize and spread the gospel so that The Lord’s voice and his promise of salvation will be heard by each and every one of his sheep.

Strongholds are being broken. Rise N’ Shine Ministries has been called to operate and move Christ’s Word of Truth into some of the denser, darker and unchartered territories. Many of us are buried under layers and layers of pain, fear, and deception. This ministry understands those paralyzing effects of those deep hurts you have endured. we are here ensuring you are able to move through each layer of bondage and further into truth.

we are standing firm on the solid rock foundation of salvation in the word and we are restoring life in the resurrected power our father Jehovah Almighty through Christ Jesus. Each one of us must do our part in strengthening and unifying the body/temple. Glory be to god.Rise and Shine Ministries New Zealand is established under the Lord Jesus Christ. We understand the hostile landscape as revealed to us through the living word. we also acutely understand the weakened condition of the body/temple and what is required to strengthen it through intense and effective Christ-centred outreach, re-teaching and re-training programs and ministering.
Jesus Christ overcame the cruelties and severe harsh realities found in this world. He allowed his precious blood to be shed as a sacrifice in love so that those who truly believe in him will be saved. We Love, Trust, and wholeheartedly Believe the word of God as written in the bible and as revealed to us through the Holy Spirit. We understand the many real dangers of unseen the spiritual landscape that manifests into our visible and physical environment.

We are the temple of God; however, many are still unaware of the promise of salvation given to us when we truly accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. we also understand the weakened condition and infrastructure of the body/temple and what is required strengthen it through intense and effective Christ-cantered outreach, re-teaching, and re-training programs.

We are here as a ministry to help you understand and live by kingdom principles and standards as shown to us through Jesus Christ. We must walk in with the complete and total love and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ.

An Inspired Personal message from the Founder & Steward:
Appointed Steward, Minister & Servant in Christ, Kristine Lara Sebastian
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.
It has been a very long road of healing, deliverance, learning and overcoming. And so I am overjoyed to be here unbound and liberated after what I now understand was my own intense real life bootcamp in Faith. I had to learn to walk by Faith so that I could come into the full and complete understanding of Jesus’s love for me. People, He loves us like no other. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lord and He will fight for us in all battles when we just simply just trust Him & surrender to Him in all things.

RISE AND SHINE

Isaiah 60:1-6

An atheist was upset with me. It started when I wrote a response to an article in the local paper about the growing number of people with no religious affiliation who consider themselves spiritual. I gently suggested that spirituality without God is empty, and that what many people who claim to be spiritual without going to church really want is to be spiritual without taking any responsibility. I implied that some use their lack of faith in the church as an excuse to not give money to the needy or work for social justice. I argued that true spirituality leads people to feed the hungry, listen to the lonely, and join with others who are doing the same.
What I wrote made perfect sense to me, but a self-described “hard-core atheist” in Colorado sent an email informing me that I am “painfully ignorant.” He helpfully pointed out that those who attend church can be just as greedy, cheap, and unfeeling as those who don’t. This is not news to a Baptist preacher.
One of the disadvantages of emailing preachers is that it’s easier for us to send a sermon than a thoughtful response. So, I attached a sermon on why it makes sense to believe in God, and the debate was on.
My atheist friend responded with a lengthy rebuttal that led to an exchange of opinions on heaven, hell, prayer, faith-healing, easy answers, difficult questions, astronomy, awe, scepticism, curiosity, the death penalty, black holes, quantum gravity, warped space-time, fifteen billion years of evolution, Carl Sagan, Jerry Falwell, which one of us had the worse experience in Sunday school, subservient wives, and wives who aren’t subservient at all.
As you would guess, neither of us has changed the other’s mind. My atheist pen pal wanted verifiable proof—“no evidence, no belief” is how he put it. Ultimately, I had to admit that what I hold is impossible to prove. I believe that once in a while I see a glimmer of light. It’s not much to go on as tangible proof.
Isaiah cannot prove he has seen a flash of light in the middle of a stormy night. The prophet lives in dark times. Palestine is forever being overrun. Wars between the countries to the east and west bring those foreign armies to Israel. When battles take place Hebrew parents watch their children be carried away. The days are even darker because the people’s hearts are far from God. No one pays attention to anyone who thinks God matters. An enemy army has wiped out Jerusalem, the temple, and the economy of once-proud Judah. The tiny remnant of Israel, those who were not killed or carried off to Babylon, is again threatened with destruction.

In the middle of the night, the prophet sees a light. “Rise and shine,” Isaiah shouts. “Get out of bed. God is here.” Jerusalem is in ashes, ruin, and despair, but just when it looks as if the sun will never rise again, dawn is about to break.
“Your sons will return from far away, and your daughters will be carried in their mothers’ arms again,” Isaiah continues. “The sight of the exiles coming home will make your face break out in a grin, your heart pound, and your eyes light up. The whole world will come riding camels and bringing gifts. People will march in from the South and sail in from the West. They will bring gold and frankincense, and they will bow down and worship God’s light” (author’s paraphrase). Isaiah saw that one day the darkness would be overcome by the coming of the light.

The world is still dark with ignorance, hatred, and death. We know that during this new year children will starve, terrorists will strike, and armies will retaliate against the innocent. Hard workers will lose their jobs, sick people will die, and drunk drivers will commit murder. Preschoolers will be abused, women will be molested, and older adults will be mistreated. Wealthy people will find it hard to give, lonely people won’t find the friends they need, and lost people won’t find their way home.
If it’s not dark for you this minute, be grateful even as you recognize it will be dark again. The day always turns into night. The dark shadows of the past never go completely away. Not all your dreams will come true. You won’t always love your job. Your family will have problems you haven’t imagined. Someone will leave too soon and you’ll be praying for a sunny day.
When life seems hard we need to remember that no matter how dark it gets, there’s a flickering light that tickles the retina just enough to give us hope. The light shines on, into, and through us. Some of the places we go are shadowy. Some of the people we know haven’t seen any light in a long time. We are the lights in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and church. God’s light illumines everything we do—the way we treat our employees, serve our employers, and speak to one another. We are candles that keep others from cursing the darkness, candles on birthday cakes that celebrate life, flashlights that make emergencies less terrifying, searchlights looking for those who’ve lost their way, lighthouses leading sinking ships to shore, and traffic lights pointing out when to go and when to stop.
Do you remember singing, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine”? Who can forget “hide it under a bushel, no!” Like most children’s church songs with motions, it was fun to sing. Our greatest joy comes in shining our little light. Light is the joy of a doctor giving sight to the blind, a lawyer protecting someone who is innocent, and a follower of Christ shining light where there was only darkness. Joy comes in being what we are meant to be, doing what we are meant to do, and shining as we are meant to shine.

This child of light whose birthday we just celebrated—who Isaiah dreamed was coming, who the magi traveled so far to see—took on the darkness so we could see the light. It’s hard to explain and we can’t prove it, but if we look carefully we may see a flicker of hope even in the darkest night.
