Dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus, part of the growing repentance remnant, cleansing as His Bride, getting ready for His soon return as our Bridegroom-----

I believe the woman above is filled with joy having just destroyed, with the Helper Holy Spirit, a massive old lie of the enemy, a stronghold. Perhaps she was brought up without any study of the Bible and followed a pattern of her parents, presenting her own agenda, partly interested in church, but really, above all else, loved her life in the flesh and the world. She attended church sometimes, but the old wineskin spirit of religion prevailed, and she criticized almost every aspect of the church, and then stopped going altogether. She had no good thing to say about Christianity; she knew a few Scriptures but was "double-minded." In due course I believe she met another person full of the Holy Spirit who shared the goodness of the Lord and His Kingdom and the Holy Spirit. Realizing her gross error, this woman, having earlier been "taken captive by the devil" (2 Timothy 2:25,26) then repented, joined Yeshua/Jesus' KINGDOM, received the indwelling Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit, and then replaced the old lie with the Truth of God's Word. She is now full of joy, bold for Christ , full of the Holy Spirit of the Messiah/Christ, growing that much more in His unique calling on her life (John 15:16). The lie of the enemy had blocked for years the fullness of God's love towards her, His forgiveness to her and thus her love towards Him and her love towards others, including witnessing to others, and making disciples to advance the Lord's Kingdom (Luke 24:47).

Today, the stronghold to "chew-- to dine on" [Revelation 3:20] with the Holy Spirit, our Teacher, is staying double-minded instead of having the mind of Christ.

Sin strongholds are false beliefs picked up at some point in our minds which, until removed by the Holy Spirit and our free will decision to repent, still govern our responses to circumstances, still mute or cover up God's Truth in His Word. All your thoughts can be traced back to beliefs based on either the truth of Scripture or on satan's lies. If that thought is based on satan's lies, it will lead to fear. Fear will then lead to some form of idolatry, a false image, a stronghold, (2 Corinthians 10:3) instead of God's Eternal Word.

This series, now set to go to Pentecost, God willing, is intended for you and me to remove strongholds as did this woman above. The process is: 1) repent [really change your thinking] ,return to God, convert (Acts 3:19) from the world and the flesh, die to that old rebellious spirit into which you and I were born (Ephesians 2:3), die to the old self, stop playing church, truly come into His Kingdom if you're not in already (Matthew 4:17, Mark 1:15; Acts 3:19); 2) receive the indwelling Holy Spirit; and 3) spend time with that Holy Spirit, the Helper (John 16:7-15), as often as possible, day after day, asking Him if you have even a residue of the sin issue presented that day. The process is private, between you and Him. Again, there's no condemnation in Christ (Romans 8:1). We all fall short of the glory of God.

But old sin patterns blocking His Eternal Word have no place in a Holy Spirit-filled believer, now a "temple of the living God." ( 2 Corinthians 6:16). Given all His promises, including that He will be a Father to each of us believers, and we are His sons and daughters, we are called to " cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God." (2 Corinthians 6:16-7:1; 1 Peter 1:15).

The Risen Christ already sees us as His Bride. He will sanctify and cleanse us by the washing of water by the word (Ephesians 5:26, the sword of the Spirit ). As each lying stronghold is demolished, replace forever the old lie with the word of God. Be washed in HIS Truth. In that repentance and cleansing process, the Lord is presenting us to Himself, "a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish." (Ephesians 5:27). He is the soon-coming Bridegroom (Matthew 24:36-51; Matthew 25:1-13; Revelation 19:7-9).

The classic scripture to remove strongholds is in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. Here it is in the amplified version: "For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.  We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ...,"

Strongholds are pulled down, and old mental blocks are broken, as you and I use spiritual weapons the Lord has given us, particularly the sword of the spirit, the Word of God. (Ephesians 6:17).

here is a short teaching on strongholds on one of our Zoom calls:

Today's issue is staying double-minded instead of having the mind of Christ.

Psalm 119: 112,113 says: " I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, to the very end. I hate the double-minded, But I love Your law." This key status is brought forward in the Book of James: " If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." (James 1:5-8). And this is then repeated in James 4:8:" Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded." As we purify, humbling ourselves, serving others, we are able to reach for the mind of Christ: " Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus....(Philippians 2:5).

Being candid with yourself and the Holy Spirit, is there any remnant of your old pattern, being double-minded instead of having the mind of Christ? Is there any old vow you made in this area that now needs to be removed? Do you think this is only applicable to the first disciples years ago? Do you have any residue of a residue of this issue for such a time as this? Was it connected to your upbringing as a child? Was it a family pattern in any way?

God bless you as you seek His Holy Spirit Wisdom and Comfort on this issue. May you go forward on His narrow path, "perfecting holiness in the fear of God." (2 Corinthians 7:1).


Isn't it clear from the shaking going on in all nations, that repentance is needed? The mission of NDR is "to awaken the Body of Christ globally to His Gift and His Joy of repentance." Would you like to be a part of this growing repentance remnant? Please pray to the Lord to see if this ministry is one He wishes you to seed into with any amount of your time, talent, and His Provision. Two volunteers have stepped forward to manage our websites and our zoom calls to the USA, Africa and Australia. Is the LORD calling you to be the next volunteer? You could use the talents He's already given you-------

Thank you for being "righteous, showing mercy and giving." As He gives you a "yes"---to donate, whatever the amount--- you'll receive His blessing: Matthew 25: 34-36.

God bless you,

Pastor Jeff Daly
