Wisdom Bombs of Steve & Wendy Backlund

wisdom bombswisdom bombsRecently I heard Steve & Wendy Backlund speak in a couple of meetings. The sessions were about igniting hope within us and helping us walk in our destiny. Their speech was full of what can be called “wisdom bombs”.

Some of their wisdom bombs

Below in headline form are a number of those wisdom bombs. In some cases I have given a bit of an explanation. To learn more, go to their website.

* You never stop learning when it comes to discovering and walking out God’s truth for your life

* Be okay with the process; God’s okay with process. Just notice the milestones, notice the improvement, and keep going!

* The more inner unity you have, the more powerful you are

Our subconscious mind takes over the conscious mind. Our subconscious can cause resistance and we end up sabotaging ourselves with our belief systems.  Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon youIsaiah 60:1

The more inner unity you have with a promise, the greater weight and authority it carries when you speak it. That’s the goal of the Word, we want to have inner unity with it.

* If we try to change our circumstances without changing our beliefs, the chances of experiencing long lasting change will be unlikely

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2

* The secret to thriving in life isn’t the ability to avoid being caught up in issues, but the ability to know who you really are in the midst of whatever life brings your way

God said, “I only want you to have thoughts that motivate you to keep changing.”

* We believe there are no hopeless circumstances, only hopeless people

* We are told that the God of hope will fill us with “all joy” when we believe

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.   Romans 15:13

* Increasing joy is one of the evidences the renewing of the mind is working

You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.  Hebrews 1:9

Joy is the second fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:22-23

* There is always a solution. I don’t know what it is, but God has one for this situation.

* Every area of our life not glistening with hope means we are believing a lie, and that area of our life is a stronghold of the enemy

If the truth sets you free, then a lie will restrict you

* The goal is not only to be like Jesus, it is also to believe like Jesus

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Romans 12:2a

* Let’s Just Laugh At That

Steve says, “I began to laugh at the lies of the enemy. I have been doing it for years now, and I like it. Lies sound really real in the darkness of our thinking, but they are laughable when brought to the light of our words.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Psalm 2:4

Eyes of Your Spirit

Natural eyes vs. spirit eyes

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,   Eph.1:18

spirit eyes neville-johnson

In this teaching, Neville Johnson teaches more about how to see into the spirit realm.

Most of the time we see only with our natural eyes. However, there is another dimension called the realm of the spirit. We should be developing our spiritual eyes so that we can see into the spirit realm.

In  Ephesians 1:18a the Apostle Paul wrote I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened. In other words, he was praying that the people be able to see with their spiritual eyes.

To another church he wrote: But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18a).  It appeared like they already could see the Lord with their spiritual eyes. 

Learn more in the short YouTube video below.

Light, Glory & Power

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”  John 3:3

  • They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom And talk of Your power.  Psalm 145:11
  • I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your gloryPsalm 63:2
  • God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.   1 John 1:5b

We can see from the 3 verses above that God is light, glory & power. If we are born again and are exposed to God enough, we can to walk in His light.

In 2 Corinthians 3:18a the people beheld the glory of the Lord and they were changed. ( But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory).  Expose yourself to the Lord enough and you too can be changed.

This is explained more fully in the video below.

How to get into the realm of God’s spirit

The unbeliever does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.   1 Corinthians 2:14

The above verse tells us that natural man does not understand the things of God because they are spiritually discerned.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (Matthew 5:8)  If a man’s conscious is not clean, he cannot get into God’s realm.

As he thinks in his heart, so is he.   Proverbs 23:7 As someone thinks, imagines & focuses, that  can become their reality.  First it will start in their spirit.  Then it will go do to the physical realm.

This is explained more fully in the video below.

Thought Life & the Law of Reproduction

Our thought life will reproduce

Be careful of your thought life.

As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.  Proverbs 23:7a

thoughtOne of the most important laws of the universe is the law of reproduction.  It’s very simple: All things reproduce after their own kind.

We all know that corn seed will produce no vegetable other than corn.  What many people do NOT realize is that our thoughts will also reproduce after their own kind.

Many people blame unfortunate  circumstances for their problems.  Perhaps they should be blaming their reaction to those circumstances.  What kind of thought life did they have? A proper attitude would be “With God’s help I can overcome those circumstances”.  Then, as they meditate upon that attitude, more similar thoughts would begin to grow.

Learn more about this in the video below.

Take responsibility for your circumstances

Use your

  • Imagination
  • Thoughts and
  • Feelings

to take hold of what you believe your future in the Kingdom of God is.

Note the verse from Proverbs near the top of this page. As we create something in our imagination, so it will become. Your circumstances right now are a product of this principle.

Jesus equated imagination with reality in Matthew 5:28: Anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

People say things like, “The devil stole such and such away from me.”  It’s human nature to blame others for our negative circumstances. God wants people to take responsibility for their own circumstances. They should learn the principles of God so that they can take that responsibility.

You have to walk in life & in love. You must train your senses to feel light emanating from you when you

  • Love
  • Are thankful
  • Are worshiping.

You train your senses with your imagination.

Creative Thinking to Impart Healing

We are meant to be creative

 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  Genesis 1:1

God created man in His own image.  Genesis 1:27a
creative thinking theresa dedmon

Theresa Dedmon says that Genesis 1:1 tells us that God is creative.  Since we are created in His image, it follows that all believers have the capacity to be creative thinkers.

We are to be “the head and not the tail”.  We should be using our creative talents to transform culture.

There is more on this topic in the YouTube video below.

Anointing on painting made people well

Handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured.  Acts 19:12a

A lady with stage 4 cancer was healed by looking at an anointed painting.  A man with bipolar disorder was healed by looking at the same painting.

This is discussed in the video below.

Man Was Blind But Now He Sees

A girl who had never done creative art before took a risk.  She went into a homeless shelter & began to work with the Holy Spirit to do some creative thinking.  She began drawing the man in front of her.  The man was sad but she drew a smile on his face.  Then she used the drawing to introduce the man to God. He kept the drawing in his pocket. His blind eye was healed, an ear was healed and a weak hand was healed.

This is explained more fully in the video below.

Creative thinking & a stick figure valentine

One of Theresa Dedmon’s students drew a stick figure valentine and gave it to a lady in a supermarket. She was quite hearing impaired. She looked at the valentine and let the student pray for her hearing. She was healed.

Surviving in the Coming Difficult Days

Surviving means you must hear God

surviving neville-johnson

In this sermon, Neville Johnson says that the Lord may be trying to get your attention.  You must be aware of that.  It is likely something very important. It could determine whether or not you will be surviving the times ahead.

He’s saying, “We need to talk. We need to have fellowship together.”

Watch this short video to hear more.

Include the Lord in What You Are Doing

One simple trick for learning to hear from the Lord is to include Him in what you are doing.  If you want to buy a new car, talk to Him about cars.  If you are baking a cake, talk to Him about baking cakes.

Learning to hear God may determine whether we will be surviving in the times ahead.

Watch this short video to learn more on this subject.

Hearing the Lord Instantly

When you are in a battle and things are going wrong, you don’t have time to go through a lot of rituals to hear from the Lord. You need to develop the faith to hear from the Lord.

Watch the short video on this subject.

Put on the Whole Armour of God

Put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.   Ephesians 6:13-17

When you first get saved, life is wonderful.  After a while it is time to mature.  To do that, it is necessary to have problems.  Overcoming them helps us to develop faith, etc.

Watch the video to get a greater understanding about this subject.

Seeing the unseen realm

surviving Four dimensions

Physicists tell us that there are a number of dimensions beyond the common ones of height, width, length and time. As you mature, try to see into the invisible realm.

There is part of you that has total access to the realm of the spirit. Learn how to switch on an awareness of what is happening beyond the common four dimensions.

Watch the video below to learn more.

Who is going to hell?

There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens EVERY man.   John 1:9  (emphasis mine)

As a pastor of a large congregation, Neville Johnson spent lots of time with dying people. For some of even the unsaved people, their eyes were opened to see part of the unseen realm.

They would ask questions like, “Who’s that man standing in the corner? He’s all in white and bright.”

Pastor Johnson would reply that it was Jesus.  Then he would give them a chance to accept Him as their saviour. The saved ones would go to heaven. For them surviving came from a last minute decision.

Trump Is Being Humbled; Humility Builds Character

...suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3b-4

Being humbled is a good thing

lance-walnauLance Walnau has an interesting take on the secret video tape of Donald Trump from over 10 years ago.  Trump is being humbled with no gracious way out.  He can’t use any bully tactics.

The liberal media released those tapes in order to take away votes from Donald Trump.

How to Pray More Effectively

Go into the courts before praying

Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.  Daniel 7:10b

Are your prayers going unanswered?  The solution may be in going into the courts of heaven and claiming your legal right.

Jesus told us that we should approach God as

  • Father
  • Friend and
  • Judge.

To get your prayers answered, consider going into the courts of heaven and approaching Father God as judge.  Hear more about this issue in the video below.

Don’t put prayer on a battlefield

robert henderson how to prayAt one point Robert Henderson had been praying about a serious family issue for two years.  Then, 15 minutes in the courts of heaven accomplished more than the previous two years of praying.

Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.            1 Peter 5:8

The word adversary in the comes from the Greek antidikos which means  one who brings a lawsuit.  The devil is seeking someone to devour.  He cannot how to pray war-machinesdevour just anyone.  He can devour those for whom he has a legal right.  He can devour those for whom he has a case in the courts of heaven.
Here is  one of the most important points of this article: If reasonable to do so, get a legal right before you start to pray.  Otherwise, there can be a huge unnecessary, inefficient battle.

Son’s depression left

Robert Henderson’s son was in a deep depression because of a marital problem.  He could see no future for himself.  Robert had been praying over the problem for two years.

Then the Lord told him to go into the courts of heaven.  As his son’s father, he had authority to repent on his behalf.  So he did.

Then the Lord told him to repent of the negative things he had said about his son.  Those negative things had given the devil legal right to harass his son.

Then, at the Lord’s direction he began to prophesy positive things over his son’s life.

End of Days As We Know It, Neville Johnson

neville-johnson end of daysDeliverers will go up on Mount Zion to govern the mountains of Esau. And the kingdom will be the LORD’s.    Obadiah 1:21

The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.   John 3:29


End of days is now

Civilization as we know it is coming to an end.  Expect it to change drastically in the years ahead.  For our present age, it is the end of days.  For many, to call it “the worst of times” would be an understatement.  For others it could be the best of times.

end of days 4-kingdoms-from-daniel-2-bottom-missingWe are presently living in the times of Revelation 12:1-11.  We are also living in the time of Daniel 2:44-45.

In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.   This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands…The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy.

Neville Johnson believes that the antichrist will rule from Europe.  He believes that the antichrist will be able to simultaneously speak to everyone who has the mark of the beast.

See this explained in the video below.

42nd generation of Matthew 1

If you read Matthew 1, it says that there are 42 generations leading up to King Jesus. However, when you add up the generations listed, there are only 41.

Read what Isaiah 53 says about the 42nd generation: Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, He will see His offspring and prolong His days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in His hand. Isaiah 53:10 (emphasis mine)

The End-time Remnant

Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favour of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.    Daniel 7:22

Who are this holy people?  How will they possess the kingdom?  Many have the chance to be among them for “Many are called, but few are chosen.    Matthew 22:14

Will you be among those few who are choosing to be chosen?


And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up to God, and to his throne.  And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and three score days.    Revelation 12:5-6

Revelation 12 is about the end of days, of this present age.  The woman clothed with the sun in Revelation 12 is the church.  Her child was caught up to heaven to be prepared to take care of the church for three and a half years.

This is explained more fully in the video below.

Emotional Abuse

After 16 years of domestic violence, Paul Hegstrom and his wife got a divorce. Then, as Dr. Hegstrom learned what he had been doing and why, he “rewired his brain”. The process took three years.

He and his former wife got remarried. After 23 years in the new marriage, there has never been a single case of domestic violence.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Outside of his home, people really liked Paul. That was because he was such a nice guy. But, inside his home he was abusive to his wife in every way including physically and emotionally.

He hated himself for that. He thought he was dirty and damaged. He kept saying that he would change. But, his behavior had control over him.

brainWithBlackHe eventually started a research project trying to find out how to make himself into a decent person. He found out how to “rewire his brain”.

Paul had been sexually abused at age eight. That had been a big part of the problem.

Some types of prepubescent traumas cause the body’s adrenalin producing system to be on high alert.

axonGrowthHe found out that there are three chemicals (dopamine, seratonin and norepinephrine) that could not be produced in sufficient quantities at the onset of puberty. The extra adrenalin prevented that from happening. As a result, part of him remained like a nine-year-old boy.

(By the way, the five types of prepubescent traumas that can put the adrenalin-producing system to stay on high alert are:

  • ♦ Rejection in the original family,
  • ♦ Incest,
  • ♦ Molestation
  • ♦ Emotional abuse and
  • ♦ Physical abuse.)
