His Great Love

You've drawn  me in like a mighty magnet and you won't let go.  Its the sweetest thing I know.  You hear my cry, you answer my call and you draw me near!  

You satisfy me, but yet I want more!  You whisper gently in my ear, words of great encouragement and piercing truth!  You love me!  You make me smile!  

Your foundation is firm and solid as a rock, your borders are without limitation and your oceans vast and deep!  Your presence, your sweet presence is like a friend from long long ago, steady, constant, comforting and powerful!  

You make me and mold me, you fashion me with your very own hands, causing my crooked path to become straight, my walk to be upright!  You have picked me up, and placed me upon my feet, catching me when I stumble and lifting me up when I fall.  You carry me when I can't carry myself, when I am weak you ARE strong!  

You open my eyes that I might behold You, and see you as you are, you open my ears that I might receive your Word and be transformed by your Truth!  

No greater Joy, no greater Peace, no greater Assurance, than what I have found in You!  

You are indeed the lover of my soul, incomprehensible, unimaginable, great and mighty You are!  Yet you are approachable and you welcome me with open arms, with an embrace that is eternal!  

You are mine and I am yours, I belong to You!  I belong to You!

Concluding....

I am beginning to conclude that if all the people who call themselves Christians AND who actually attempted to follow Jesus' example and keep God's commandments, along with many other statutes, precepts... if they truly sought to live holy, righteous and blameless lives before God if they actually spent more time in prayer than they did perusing the net, holding fund raisers, posting on facebook, putting together programs...and stopped engaging non-believers, fighting with those who have no interest in God or His ways...I dare say we would have a church that Jesus talked about, one clothed in glory, power, one that was obvious to believers and non-believers alike...and totally capable of so much more.  Albeit there would only be a handful..... but I am reminded of the few that housed Noah's Ark.  I am reminded of Moses.. 

The clarity God brings when we study His word, is remarkable, its obvious.  When I speak about God to anyone or the things of God it becomes immediately apparent who is interested and who isn't.  Typically they either get engaged and asked questions or interrupt you with another topic, or just outright dismiss you.  Thats a clue folks... I am learning so very quickly what the scripture means when it says don't cast your pearls before swine.  If people want the truth, they will ask for it, appeal to it, search for it, seek it out and they will be receptive to it when they are fortunate enough to hear it.  Continue to pray for them and for yourselves to be good stewards of the Word, but don't waste your time on those who reject you or the message God has placed in your heart.  God may have someone else to whom their ears are open to, rather than you, trust God and move on.  

The day will come sooner than later I am certain, when the Truth isn't so readily available.  It will be unfortunate when it no longer is... Amos 8:11 tells us this very thing.  We have willfully disregarded God and His Word.  Soon we will thirst for it and it will not be found, except in those who have repented of their sins and followed His commands, who have a personal relationship with God through His Holy Spirit.  

Its becoming so evident to me who the true followers of Jesus are, I pray that I become more like Him, to cast aside all the things of this world, to spend the majority of my time seeking Him and His counsel, studying and meditating upon His word.  God connect me with true saints!  Many are called but few are chosen, because the majority have and continue to reject you!  They have no joy, no peace, no power!  White washed sepulchres full of dead men's bones!  Where are the ones crying out to You!  Travailing in anguish especially at this time as the world around us grows darker in deep sin and willful ignorance!

A Shift..

God is so faithful!  He is always ready to keep His promises, to exercise His commitment toward us. For many months, weeks and days I have had a growing burden on my heart and a growing fear of God.  He says in His Word, that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

I see what is taking place across the land, across the entire planet.  I have watched for many many years the things that tell me we are certainly living in that time prophesied centuries ago.  A time when darkness envelopes the earth, when wars and rumors of wars are evident, when natural disasters and calamity grow worse and the hearts of men turn toward selfish pleasure.  I have been one of those men.

I have grown sick of this world, of my own sin and betrayal of the One who freely offers a way to salvation and abundant life.  I have felt many times that I was on the brink of death of going over the edge of being sealed in a fate I feared, but God had other plans, He always did.  He called me first, before the world and all that is in it did.  He was first and will be the last.

Ephesians 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him.  In love.  He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself according to the kind intention of His will...

He has answered many prayers.  One of those prayers has been and continues to be to grant me repentance, to give me a repentant heart.

2 Timothy 2:24-26  The Lord's bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their sense and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.   (He is still working on me here)

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people who are called by name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Acts 3:19  Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord

Ezekiel 18:21-23 But if the wicked will turn all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.  All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him:  in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.  Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

2 Peter 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Proverbs 28:13  He that covereth his sins shall not prosper, but whosoever confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Acts 2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

2 Corinthians 7:9-11  Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.  For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of:  but the sorrow of the world worketh death.  For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge!  In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

I am undone by your mercy and grace and you confirm your Word to me over and over again. How great you are, my God!

Psalm 119:174-176  I long for your salvation, O Lord, and your law is my delight.  Let my soul live and praise you, and let your rules help me.  I have gone astray like a lost sheep, seek your servant, for I do not forget your commandments.

I can't imagine anyone that truly wants to make God first in their lives, to know Him, to experience His presence like never before... I can't imagine not constantly seeking repentance to be free of sin to be made holy and righteous before Him.  I can't comprehend anything less because the enemy has sought to destroy me from every angle, at every breath.  Surely I have been deceived on many levels and as God sets the captive (me) free, He also reveals the enemy's devices, He identifies those areas where I was weak and disillusioned, deceived and determined in my own strength.

What a time we live in!  What great darkness abounds and appears to be growing at a rapid pace.  For a long time my intellect and assuredness of what the enemy was doing caused me to be self righteous and I obsessed about the things that drew my attention.  Having thought this was important and that I was somehow in the know about so much, I became prideful in my heart and it eventually led me down familiar paths, paths that led me into deeper bondage to sin.  God revealed to me, that while it is important to not be ignorant of the enemy's devices, it would be of no value if I didn't know Him.

I could go into so much detail and write a hundred books on various topics, things I have seen, witnessed and educated myself with along this journey - but to no avail if I am unable to tell you about the One who overcame and the way He has made for us.  To be co-heirs with Christ!

I can feel and sense in my spirit through His own, that we are approaching so much, so much I can't convey with words, with writing, or any form of communication.  I have prayed for a long time off and on:  "God where are the true saints?"  I need that kind of accountability in my life, I need to see the Church in the glory and power that you spoke of so many times, so long ago.  Where is that Church? Where is your Bride Father?  The world needs your Church, they need to see you through the ones that you are raising up.  We need you Father!  We need you, where are the saints Lord, where are they?

He has given me many visions and dreams, many I don't even remember the details of but understand the Truth that was conveyed.  He has also assured me of so much through those same visions and dreams, which I can't forget.  One being of a great division or perhaps "falling away" that will be witnessed which I now understand at least in part, is needed because more and more the true followers of Christ, the true saints will be revealed.  As the darkness grows darker, the lights will shine brighter!  He showed me the false bride or church years ago and I am seeing it clearer and clearer today.  I am amazed at Him, truly amazed at the reality of God!

I almost can't even listen to a preacher, teacher, pastor or evangelist ordained or not, that do not speak of repentance especially at this critical time in the history of the world.  The time is so very very short.

I use to have a growing fear of what was and is taking place in the world today, but more and more He is giving me a great peace that I can't really understand or convey.  I am almost filled with an overwhelming excitement of the things to come because I know while there will be great turmoil, persecution and evil, there will also be a great outpouring of His spirit and the Church the true Church will be revealed.  It will become so crystal clear to so many that are seeking Him and His presence.  What an awesome time it will be!  I relayed this feeling to a friend via facebook today and the only thing I can compare it to, is like the bubbling of a very deep and large well... bubbling up and its so large that I hear a distant roar, not like a bubbling, babbling brook, but of a mighty ocean, even the joy that this represents seems overwhelming.  The peace is overwhelming!  Its like hearing or feeling the whole expanse of Heaven and everyone that inhabits it, along with the angels innumerable keying up to sing the most powerful and mighty song or chorus they have every sung, never before.  Its overwhelming I tell you!  It reminds me of the near death like experience I had and witnessed billions upon billions of angels singing in perfect harmony, but this is different, this is more powerful, more exciting, than anything ever before.  Everything will be shaken, almost as if eternity itself could be shaken... its an awesome sight, and feeling.

He is girding my path as it becomes more narrow and straight.  This is His Word, that His spirit within me bares witness with.. I can see it so clearly - His Truth is girding up my path!  Almost like the corralling of livestock as the entry way into the slaughter house grows more narrow, only I am no longer being led to slaughter!!!  Praise God!  The enemy works the same way, only he captivates you with sin, with self seeking desire, with lies!  We are deceived into believing lies, and when we realize the truth, we find ourselves in bondage, only to be fed more lies that there is no escape! But praise God, He has made a way!  He has made a way!

Psalm 119:7-15  I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous rules.  I will keep your statutes; do not utterly forsake me!  How can a young man keep his way pure?  By guarding it according to your word.  With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!  I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you...

Psalm 119:34-38  Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.  Lead me in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it.  Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain!  Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.  Confirm to your servant your promise, that you may be feared.

John 8:34-36  Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.  And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.  Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."

I could write for many more days on end without stopping.  Surely my prayer continues to be:  "Father draw me close, continue to grant me a repentant heart that I might draw closer to You and be found worthy to even be in Your Presence.  That I would forsake all the things of this world to glorify You.  That I might be a light unto the world as you have called me to be, by the power and purpose of Your Spirit alone!  Father my heart cries out to You that You would reveal Your power and might to the world through those You call your own!  That Your people who are called by Your Name, would humble themselves and repent!  That you would pour out Your Spirit upon all flesh!  Do a quick work in me:

Joel 2:24-26 The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.  "Then I will make up to you for the years that the swarming locust and the gnawing locust, has eaten, the creeping locust, the stripping locust and the gnawing locust, My great army which I sent among you.  You will have plenty to eat and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you; then My people will never be put to shame...

Joel 2:28  And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.

Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of Lord is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek, he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

Surely a shift is taking place within my spirit, and I know its because I have prayed for repentance and He has answered me!  Thank you Father, thank You!

And something new that has come about... I have asked Him to grow my faith.. He is doing just that!  I don't know how, but in times past when I prayed for something, I typically left the prayer with hope that He heard me, hope that it would come to pass.  Of course some of those prayers were answered in the way I wanted, and some were answered with "No".. but I didn't realize it was "No" until I realized it was "No" that I needed.  Today that still holds true, but now I can see past the obstacles, the doubt, the fog if you will.  I can see the promise, I can see the answer on its way, although I can't make out the details, I can certainly make out His faithfulness! Which to me is worth more than the thing or situation I may have prayed about.  Its like a super-sized blessing, beyond words!  His Faithfulness - it melts my heart really.. To see His promise!  I wish I could explain it better, but I simply am left without words!



666 Mark of the Beast - Fema: United Nations Death By Guillotine - Sunda...

Enforced Sunday Worship Laws Cox 05 Mark of The Beast

This has been a topic of study for me recently especially with the latest encyclical by the Pope and his upcoming visit to the U.S. This encyclical sets up the mandate that many believe will come to enforce Blue Laws, which is also known as the Sunday Law - first created by the Roman Catholic Church in 321 AD, officially it was some time after that when it was enforced. This law, is a direct breaking of the 4th commandment, which is the keeping of the Sabbath. The Sabbath is the 7th day of the week, which is Saturday - however, most of the world perceive Sunday as the Sabbath. The Holy Sabbath which is Saturday was changed to Sunday by the Catholic Church. It is interesting to note the reason given by the Pope for the recommendation for enforcing the "Sabbath" is due to climate change and how the increasing storms, and various and disastrous climatic related events are directly connected with the sin of man. Enforcing the "Sabbath" would give the people and the planet a day of rest as ordained by God. The only problem being that the Sabbath is not Sunday but it is Saturday. It is also interesting to note that Obama stated that the U.S. would be the leader in this effort, implying that America would be the first nation to enforce this practice on it's people, in essence forcing the people to break the commandment of God. Catholic Record Sept 1 1923 "Sunday is our mark of authority... The church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." The Roman Catechism 1985: "The civil authorities should be urged to cooperate with the church in maintaining and strengthening this public worship of God, and to support with their own authority the regulations set down by the church's pastor. For it is only in this way that the faithful will understand why it is Sunday and not the Sabbath day that we keep holy." Catechism of the Catholic Church - Paragraph 2188, 1994 Edition: "In respecting religious liberty and the common good of all, Christians should seek recognition of Sundays and the Church's holy days as legal holidays. It is time that we demonstrate our Catholic vitality and engage the public policy debate. We have the power and the people to embark on this movement - a movement that will benefit all Americans."



Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Upholding God's Sabbath is one of those commandments.

Acts 5:29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: "We ought to obey God rather than men."

The traditions of men nullify the Word of God.

Studying....

I can't seem to get enough studying and watching/listening to messages that God is leading me to.  I am so grateful for the conviction of His Holy Spirit, who is leading, guiding and directing.  I am gaining such a deeper more sure understanding of so many things.  

He became the sin of man, that we might become the righteousness of God through faith in the One who was born of a virgin under the law, Yeshua, who lived a blameless life, who knew no sin, but died in our place, who became the sacrifice for all.  Who rose again and went to the Father and sent us the comforter, The Holy Spirit!  Yeshua is our salvation!  He is our one and only saviour!  No other can or will do! 

Truth faith is expressed through repentance!  Unless we repent we will likewise perish!

It was by His obedience to God, to His law, that paved the way to our salvation.  We are incapable of keeping the law and transgession of the law just once is death. The wages of sin is death!  But He came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it!  And in doing so and willingly offering Himself up as the only appropriate and complete sacrifice, He paid the penalty for all of our transgressions, all of our sin!  He indeed is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him, through our faith in Him in believing in Him and following Him!  And through that faith which God counts as righteousness because of His sacrifice, He calls us to repentance, to holiness and He empowers us to accomplish this through His Holy Spirit, who leads, guides, directs, comforts and convicts.  He is our comforter, our teacher, our help in times of trouble, our friend and indeed, indeed the lover of our soul!  As we study the living Word of God, His Spirit within us bares witness to the testimony of The Christ, Jesus of Nazareth, the Holy Son of God..and leads us into all truth!  From glory to glory, that we might received and experience the fullness of Christ, of His Spirit!

Repentance!

I can only feel a growing perplexity and great sadness overtake my heart, my spirit, my mind as I sit here this evening. Just like millions across the planet I see the news, I see the propaganda, I see people fighting amongst themselves, murders, evil at every turn. I literally see everything God warned us of happening moment by moment, but in every moment. For years I have watched so many things and I am convinced that the Word of God is true and this time is growing very very short. As a result God has placed a growing urgency in my spirit to get it right and get right with Him. To repent! To draw close to Him to put away the things of this world, the ideals, the false teaching, the pride, the arrogance, the confusion, the sin! To give my life, to give my time, my energy, my attention, my prayers, my whole being to Him. So many, so many people who call themselves men and women of God are growing angry and are attempting to do what they think is taking a stand while their words of fierce anger and frustration seem warranted, it has become so blatantly obvious the level of confusion and lack so many of us have and are experiencing. We are spiritually bankrupt. When I see someone say we need to fight back and the way to do that is to fly our flags high, go to our courts, our congressmen, our president I am deeply sickened by the reality of what is actually taking place. We should be on our knees in deep repentance, deep sorrow, grieving and crying out with everything we have in us to the One True Living God! One of the headlines I saw today was "Four of our military men died today, what are we going to do about it?" I heard in my spirit: My innocent children die by the thousands each day and you have done nothing! Your anger toward each other and your rebellious heart will only bring more pain and suffering. You have neglected me, you have turned your backs on me and you stand there in your arrogance and pride and think that your words have value, they do not, your anger should be aimed at yourselves, you nation full of heathens and evil doers, especially those of you who call yourselves my disciples. You are the reason these men died today, you are the reason thousands of innocent children die every day, you are the reason - because you have done nothing and now because the evil has encroached upon your own house, your own land, you raise your voice, one I will not hear until you humble yourselves and repent!" All of these words apply to me personally. Every single one. This country, the U.S.A is NOT and I repeat is NOT a great nation and has not been for many many decades. Sure we have had great riches, great power and great recognition across the planet, but our time is up. The evil that runs through every state, city and town will be revealed and the cancerous sores that have been hidden away will be known and the people of this land will see the filth that we have piled upon ourselves and our children. If we were a great nation in God's eyes do you think for a minute we would not have His blessing? We have lost our way and purposefully neglected and rejected God. And some stand in awe and shock that we are suffering even just a little?? I am amazed at the complete and utter blindness that afflicts so many and so many more who call themselves Christians. Who profess His name but lack His power. God help us! God help me! God could care less about a flag of any type, be it confederate or one that bears a cross - they are idols no matter the story we connect with them. Its ironic that some of the very things that are causing division in the land, are idols. God could care less what your past is, He is concerned about your future and that future is in the very next breath you take if we are blessed to even have it. But yet, we fight and fight and cause division and confusion, discord and many do it in the name of Christ. What great blasphemies, what great sin do we commit? For any true man or woman of God, there should be peace and joy no matter the times, no matter the wars, the differences, the opinions of others. This is the time He prophesied and told us about - should we be so surprised? We should be rejoicing and pursuing Him even more, but so many are deceived so many. I am sickened in my spirit today, and many days - more and more I feel the growing need to lock myself away and be with God, to seek His face, His counsel, His wisdom - to continually be in prayer. I can only imagine the real anguish and desperation Jesus felt in the garden when He prayed alone to God, His Father. What a great burden He bore for all mankind. Lord, Lord, continue to open my eyes, lay bare my heart that every evil and detestable thing would be consumed by You that I would be found worthy, to be a light to the world, to seek you continuously and love you with my whole being. Crucify me Lord! I am nothing, nothing apart from You! Cause me to walk upright, to seek You for every single second of my life, and cause me to delight in all your ways, to love every statute and command that I might be made Holy through and by Your Spirit, to be convicted and sanctified that the old man would indeed completely and utterly die, that the new man would live and breathe! God forgive us forgive us of our great sin, of our neglect, our willful turning our backs on You. Cause our hearts to be broken God, that we would turn from every wicked way and thought and follow You!

Pray and Be Alone With God - Paul Washer

Paul Washer - Shocking Message (full length - HQ)

This is one of the most powerful messages of repentance I have ever heard.  I am sure I will watch it time and time again until every single truth revealed in this message is seated deep within my heart and mind.



Urgency to Repent and Renew my mind

God has put fear in my heart, which is an answer to prayer. He says in His word that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

So few in today’s world even believe in God, or rather believe God. There is a huge difference. Many believe He exists, even satan does, but few very very few believe Him at His word for a million reasons. The whole world has been deceived on so many levels for so long, I am not excluded. The time is very short, the world around us is collapsing, evil is on all sides and the depravity and perversions grow by the minute. I have been a part of this, but God has called me out, to be holy, to seek Him, to seek righteousness and I have been such a hypocrite. God forgive me! My heart is dark and my intellect deceives me. Yet, He still has not forsaken me. I fear that (like many) I will suffer great judgment and wrath, but He speaks to me saying He is still here, there is still time for me to repent of my sins fully and to walk in His ways. The carnal mind has such great power over our flesh, but He has greater power. Many times I have tried to “figure it all out” and try in my own strength to withstand temptation, but I have failed miserably. I want nothing of myself to exist anymore. I am wretched, poor, naked and blind. God forgive me! God forgive me! Surely, surely I pray God give me wisdom, give me strength, give me the desires of YOUR heart and not my own, my heart is dark and evil.

Jeremiah 17:8-10 For he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit. The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give each man according to his ways, according to the results of his deeds..

Mark 7:20-22 "That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. I need a new heart! I need a new mind.

Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me”

Ezekiel 36:25-27 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean, I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. A new mind comes from:

Romans 12:1-3 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think, but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.

Ephesians 5:26 That He (Christ) might sanctify and cleanse it (the Church) with the washing of water by the word. 

I must continually wash my mind, that it might be renewed, with the Word of the Lord. He has placed such an urgency in my heart to walk upright, holy and blameless before Him! I am also burdened with many “things” of this world and while He is calling me to great repentance and time alone with Him, in His Word, in His presence - I must also cast off the things of this world both physical and spiritual. I am not fully aware of what this ultimately means, but He has urged me to start with my house - to sell many possessions or at least give them away. For now that seems a little overwhelming but He is bringing me to a place of not wanting anything, because lately everything seems to be a burden and there is no joy or satisfaction in the things I possess. I also recently withdrew from online classes that I was working on toward the completion of a degree - and He revealed to me that these are just burdens during this time. I will have no time to complete the degree, I feel very strongly - not because I think i won’t be here, but moreso because the work of Him in my life is becoming paramount. A degree in the times that are upon us will have no value. I have wasted so much time and I pray that He will do a very quick work in my life, my spirit, my mind!
My office is filled with books on many topics, many that have helped teach me a little about God and about the world we live in from a spiritual perspective, but none of it has great value. The books themselves simply take up space and cause me to have attachments to an intellect that in the light of God’s wisdom, is foolishness. He is the great Teacher! His Spirit is here for us, for just that.

John 14:25-26 These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever.

John 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on His own, He will only speak what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come.

1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as His anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit, just as it has taught you, remain in Him.
He reminds of this passage as I close today’s post.

Habakkuk 2:1-3 I will stand on my guard post and station myself on the rampart; and I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me, and how I may reply when I am reproved. Then the Lord answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who read it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay…."

A Call To Repentance Through John Mulinde's Testimony Jesus Is Coming ...

To Judge or Not to Judge

I posted this earlier on Facebook... it burdens my heart that so many so called Christians are policing the world with their judgement and condemnation when God clearly states He is the judge, and we will judge the world at our appointed time, not now. We are to judge our fellow brothers and sisters, i.e. born again believers. Otherwise our so called judgment of those outside of the church, the true church, is condemnation, not justice, not mercy or grace. So many so called christians, say they point out the sin in another's life (non- believers) because they don't want them to go to hell... thats BS... they want to condemn they want to be like God and judge. If they didn't want them to go to hell then they would spend their time telling them the good news and why its good news and they would do everything they possibly could to get them in front of Jesus, who by His Holy Spirit will convict them, not judge them of their sins, that they might seek holiness and a blameless life, that they might become living sacrifices for our King!

This division that is taking place is shaking me and the world up, but the greatest part about it? Its bringing great contrast between the wolves and the sheep, between the wheat and the chaff. Praise God! The dark is getting darker all the while making the light shine brighter... I hope and pray we can tell the difference between the One True Light of God, and the one who shows himself as an angel of light and all his ministers. Its time we stop condemning the world and start leading people to the saving grace of God. Did He not love us while we were yet sinners, did He not die for us while we were in sin, did He not forgive us to bring us into repentance to turn from our wicked ways and be renewed, refreshed, revived?

Here is my post from Facebook...

I have heard so many say as Christians we are to judge and doing so by the fruit others produce. But I want to make a point, a distinction for those that know me.. the word "Christian" as it as come to be in today's world is repulsive to me. Because it, in today's world basically means someone believes in God. It does not mean that by those beliefs they live their lives, that they uphold the statutes, commands, and precepts of the One True Living God. Satan believes in God...and if you say you are a Christian but are not also a follower of Christ, His disciple (and this applies to me) then we are no more set apart than the one who fell from heaven.. So Yes I can see very clearly why "Christians" judge and feel entitled to do so, because they lack the conviction of the Holy Spirit of the Love of God, the patience and forgiveness that He has given, they lack His mercy and grace and no it is was not free, surely we don't pay the price, but He did, with His life. They lack a deep concern for the salvation of one's soul, instead placing great value on the sin in a person's life. A true follower of Christ (not necessarily a Christian in today's context) will understand these words which He has brought to mind today.. 1 Corinthians 5:11-12 11But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler-- not even to eat with such a one. 12For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church? 13But those who are outside, God judges. REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES. We have no place or part in judging the world until the appointed time (1 Corinthians 6:2) according to this scripture and many others that support this, we do have a part in rightly judging one another, with love and mercy, grace and compassion - one another being fellow brothers and sisters and not all are our brothers and sisters (but could be when they are born again if we can ever get past their sin and help lead them there)....and attempting to pass judgment on those only widens the gap between us. I firmly believe this and see the fruit that comes from not following this precept.

Lament


Lament
By Jeff Capps, Daniel Clay, Randy Fuller and Isaac Wimberley

My sins are before me, transgressions so great
Against You, and You only, have I turned away

I’ve worshiped creation, I’ve chosen my pride
From You, and You only, have I tried to hide

Lord I confess my need
Your mercy washes me

My heart is uncovered, my soul is laid bare
To You, and You only, will I lift my head

Lord I confess my need
Your mercy washes me

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
His mercies will never end
He is my God, my portion forever
I find my hope in Him

Great is Thy faithfulness

Let the bones You have broken rejoice
In the silence I lift up my voice

Great is Thy faithfulness

I have to post this again... such a powerful message.  If this doesn't inspire you I am not sure what will.

Spiritual Earthquake for the Church

God has just brought to mind so many things from the past, dreams, visions, other warnings or dreams from others.. Jonathan Cahn just recently spoke about the apostate church and the division between the "two Christianities" which you can find a link to in my earlier posts of the day.... likewise God brought back to memory this vision or dream by Sean Starr from 2012. I am reposting the link here for your review.  I feel strongly with the recent events and ongoing division that we are experiencing, the time of this particular message is now or soon to be.

The good thing about the "two christianities" at least for me, is that it will become even more clear to those seeking God, who the True Body of Christ is and is not.  The division will become so stark there will be little question as to who are part of His Bride and who is not.  The choice will be clear, the clarity this will bring will be such a blessing to so many - even as we are persecuted.

God indeed will allow the foundations of this nation to be shaken and a line will be drawn in the sand.  I see this as a tremendous blessing because as the darkness grows darker the lights will shine brighter and many will be called to repentance and our yes will be yes and our no will be no!  No to a lukewarm life, and we will be set on fire for God!


Jonathan Cahn - "End of Christian America"

Two Christianities? Jonathan Cahn - End of Christian America is Here

End of Christian America is Here - click this link to go to the article. This article detailing recent commentary and discussion by Jonathan Cahn regarding the end of "Christian America" reminds me of a vision God gave me a long time ago. This has to do with the apostate Church or the falling away. I have spoken many times about great division taking place among the people of the world and it seems to have picked up the pace especially in these last several weeks. This is in light of the recent shootings in SC (which I believe is a false flag to stir more tension and racial division) as well as the recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to allow and recognize same-sex marriages. For many years I have asked God where the true saints were. It hasn't been so obvious because the man-made doctrine and lukewarm attitudes of the "Church" has made it difficult at best to discern. Surely I have prayed for discernment and continue. But I fully believe this will a time of great persecution and it will be those who are being persecuted that will reveal to me and so many others, the true followers of Christ. The vision He gave me of the "False Church" can be found here

Bakers Facing $135K Fine Over Wedding Cake for Same-Sex Couple Speak Out

This news recently has really stirred me up a little. Not because I am angry at the judge's decision - or surprised of the obvious persecution - and I can't say how I would decide if I had been this couple - but I can say, that if I were asked to do something that conflicted with my religious beliefs, I would have to refuse. I have spent a great deal of my life compromising what I believed to be true which makes me a hypocrite. More than ever before I think we have greater opportunities to stand up for what we believe in, but moreso to help those by prayer, by community, by conviction who share a common belief in the One True God and as we seek Him and seek to live righteous and holy lives, we should take advantage of those opportunities. It would have been one thing if the judge had ordered them to make the cake in the way the two women wanted, but its quite a different thing to fine them $135,000 - quite a bit more money than the average person or even couple earns in a year, and to place a gag order to keep this couple from even speaking about why they refused. What happened to "let us reason together"... how can a community expect tolerance and acceptance when they don't provide it themselves and much more take away the livelihood of an entire family and their freedom of speech? If you feel led to help this couple and their family out, to show support, please do I have provided a link below the video.







Help Melissa & Aaron Klein

ARE YOU TIRED OF YOUR SIN?

Perplexed

So I wake up this morning to find posts regarding the decision to fine the Oregon Bakery that refused to write an inscription on a lesbian couples' cake, $135,000 and to add to that, the judge also placed a gag order on the couple to silence them from speaking about their decision or their beliefs which is the basis for their decision.

This and so many other things happening in the world is the work of the enemy to divide and divide and divide some more.  Its unfortunate for both sides, but I think more for the homosexual community.  They want inclusion, to be treated equal to be validated, etc.  But this kind of unfair persecution of Christians causes more division.  But we know these things will take place and it will get worse but we should count it all joy to be hated for the cause of Christ, to be persecuted.  Even so, the enemy will continue to use this case and many more to come, to silence followers of Christ from sharing the Truth.  What a terrible time that will be, when you can't even speak about Christ to others without fear of persecution and possible imprisonment.  Surely if you haven't been aware up to this point, you are now.  Christians are being persecuted all over the planet and don't think for a second that America is immune from it.  Don't think for a minute that the United States for some unknown reason is excluded from the great judgment that is coming upon it and all those that dwell here.  Surely the protective hand of God is being lifted if not already.

I thought about some of the reactions of this latest ruling and my attention turned toward many who call themselves Christian.  I take a further step back to get a birds eye view of what I see most days and it struck me kind of odd.. The majority of Christians (not followers of Christ - there is a big difference) seem to convey that God and Jesus are here for them, to do for them to bless them to prosper them to keep them healthy and pay their bills by providing good jobs, promotions, favor in every aspect of their lives... all while they do absolutely nothing.  I repeat while they do absolutely nothing for Him.  Sure they give God credit when they are blessed, when they receive a promotion, when they "prosper" in the eyes of man, but thats about it.  It all looks good on the outside, it even makes us feel good.  I can afford a new car, a new gadget, a new something or I can repair something that has been neglected for a while, I can be invited to preach, teach or sing somewhere and that feels good, helps pay the bills... etc  But what does it do for a lost and dying world?  What do those things contribute to a starving child, a drug addict, a prostitute, what do those opportunities for me provide to someone else who has nothing, no shelter, no clothing, no food - to someone who is dying and alone, no matter where they are or the sin in their lives? I hav to include myself in "they" when I speak of these things.  I am praying this post will create a deep and shaking conviction in my heart, my mind and my spirit - that will leave me no choice but to truly and completely surrender to Him in all my ways, and thoughts.  That I might be empowered to go and share the good news of God, and the redeeming power of Him that died for us, Jesus Christ.

Some go to every Church service or function religiously, no pun intended and invite all they see to go as well.  Thats the tag line for many - "Come join us Sunday for Church"... we want the world to come to God on our terms and never consider meeting them where they are.  We invite the world into our so called sanctuary, but we dare not go out to the world as Christ has called us to do.  And what is even more disheartening, often times when those we have invited do show up on Sunday, all they hear is comforting words of how God is writing His story on your life (while that may be true) they never ever hear the salvation message or why they even need to be saved.  They never hear one word about repentance or the times that we live in.  Instead they are wined and dined with the latest popular message, casual coffee and tea, a dynamic feel good worship team and plenty of program opportunities to keep you busy.  They come away feeling good about themselves and about God, but never broken, never in fear for their souls or those that they love.

The mentality of so many people who call themselves Christians, is that of "what I get", "what He does for me, or will do for me"... but what are we really doing for Him?  Singing songs about Him, writing books, producing movies, donating a few dollars to this cause or that cause?    I wonder how much time the average "christian" spends in prayer truly seeking God, truly repenting, crying out to Him in desperation - because its desperation we need in our hearts - just open your eyes a little and see what is going on around you, in the world.  So many people who believe in God, but fail to follow Him, feel entitled.

I promise you I could pull up facebook and find at least a few posts about what God is going to do for someone in the first 10 minutes before I will ever find something from someone publicly crying out for repentance, for a call to prayer, deep true heartfelt prayer, for revelation and discernment.  No, what the world is crying out for is more prosperity, more money, more things, more opportunities to sing here or there, to preach here or there and rarely do I hear of people working to help their fellow neighbor, friend, never do I hear about people making true sacrifices for our King, for Him.  I hear people talk all the time about much they are "blessed" to be able to do this or that, to go here or there, to preach, to sing, to participate in something - but those things those opportunities are often more self gratifying than anything else and rarely do they put food in the mouths of hungry starving people, real food.  There is a famine in the land and its a famine of great proportions - a famine of the true Word of God, of true compassion and sacrifice, of true repentance!

Hasn't He done enough?  Wasn't His death on Calvary enough?  I tell you if I never had another morsel to eat, or any more breath in my body - He was and is enough!

God break our hearts! Teach us to be true living sacrifices for you, not self seeking, make us aware of what truly being blessed is... Let us promote you and not ourselves or what we can do, but what you have done!  That the world would know you are God, and your mercy and grace endures, that we need you, and that without you we would not have life, but suffer eternal death.  Remove the scales from our eyes that we might see and unstop our ears that we might hear!

For me personally, God give me a new heart, one that is ready to sacrifice all for you and I mean all even unto death.  Cause me to seek you with my whole heart, mind, body and soul that I might find favor in your sight, to be humble and constantly in a state of repentance as I seek you more and more, that I might have life more abundantly not with the things of this world but in abundant relationship with You, Your presence!  God help us!  We need you more than ever - reveal that to us, that we would turn from our wicked ways and repent!

JUDGMENT IS COMING TO AMERICA & THE WORLD

I despise this sin - not because of the people who commit it, but because it only brings heartache and destruction.  I am guilty of the same.  It is a sickness of the soul and it serves no good purpose, but self righteous pleasure.  So many people are deceived because they have believed one lie after another and God will send a strong delusion that they might believe a lie, many lies.  I am praying to God to cause me to have a deep, trembling and reverent fear of His judgment, but even more that my heart would absolutely break when I am faced with my own sin.  That I would be so grieved in my spirit when I think about betraying Him and all He did and does for me.  Oh Lord keep my mind and heart in a constant state of repentance, to humble myself before you and subject all things under your authority, mercy and grace.  That I would completely turn away from the things of this world, turning to you for everything.  Make my heart humble, my mind sharp and make me a living sacrifice, that I might find favor with you, that all of my sins would be remembered no more and that your grace would flood my life.  Empower me to desire every command, every statute, every precept  - to seek holiness and righteousness, that I would forsake all things apart from you!
