Do You Think of That Day?

Do You Think About That Day?
March 25, 2013

Silhouettes of Three CrossesA few weeks ago, I asked the Lord, “Do you think about that day, the crucifixion?” After all Jesus was betrayed, falsely accused, arrested, abandoned, tried, brutally beaten, mocked, humiliated and if that wasn’t enough,  then crucified on the cross. Perhaps the events of that day are something that Jesus Christ would rather not think about, choosing to move on to more pleasant things in the Spirit.

As I meditated my question to the Lord, Holy Spirit led me to Luke 22-23, which begins with the approaching Passover feast and concludes with the burial of Jesus.

Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was approaching. The chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might put Him to death; for they were afraid of the people. And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, belonging to the number of the twelve. And he went away and discussed with the chief priests and officers how he might betray Him to them… Luke 22:71 -Luke 23:1-56

I carefully read these verses in a totally new way. Now, I was reading as Jesus was thinking about “that” day. The very next morning, Holy Spirit led me to the same scriptures just as He did the morning before. As I read them again, I began to understand that Jesus continually thinks of that day as He looks at each one of His us. He looks at us through His sacrifice of “that” day when His love for all mankind was on full display for all mankind.

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” JN 15:13

I have known many Christians who truly don’t believe that Jesus really loves them, not to mention the backsliders and unbelievers who do not think Jesus will forgive them of their sins. In order to have a healthy Christian walk, it is vital to accept Jesus’ unconditional love for ourselves. He has made us worthy to receive forgiveness and we are accepted in Him by His work on the cross. His love for us must become an eternal “absolute” in our lives. We are to look at His act of love not our own life failures. He wants you to know that you are the focus of all His thoughts and His greatest desire is that you will receive His act of devine love and accept Him as your Lord and savior. Eph 1:3-5 states that before the foundation of the world Christ predestined us to be made holy by His unselfish act of love for each one of us and that our sins are forgiven.

That day, when His love was on full display for all eternity, even before you were ever born. God had provided the perfect sacrifice for you by a selfless act of love. Jesus laid down His life willingly because that was His purpose before the foundation of the world was ever created.

Jesus thinks of that day continually as He watches over each one of you. Every moment of His day is devoted to thoughts of His plan for your life. I believe it is impossible for Jesus Christ to look at any one of us without thinking of that day. My question is. “If Jesus Christ thinks of that day continually, How often do you think of that day?”

Scripture Reference:

“I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. JN 10:11

even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. JN 10:15

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:6-8

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.1 JN 4:8-11

 

 

 

 



  • Prophecy in the Sky – Comet PANSTARRS

    Prophecy in the Sky – Comet PANSTARRS

    The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.  Ps. 19:1-6

    panstarrsToday, March 12, 2013, the comet PANSTARRS will silhouette the crescent (new) moon in the western sky at twilight on Nissan 1, 5773, the beginning of the religious year in the Hebrew calendar. In fifteen days it will be Passover. Comets are markers (signals) sent from God to us as signs to warn or alert us of a major event which will soon transpire on earth.  We can know these things by tracking the path the comet takes as it passes through the constellations.

    First, the comet PanStarrs enters the constellations in this order, Cetus > Pisces> Pegasus> Andromeda. The meaning of each constellation and the stars in each constellation is critical to understanding the signs (message) in the heavens. I hope to reveal to you the meaning of the comet.

    The Meaning of Comet PANSTARRS:

    The timing and the path of the PANSTARRS comet reveals by the biblical meaning of the constellations.

    As the comet traverses through Cetus (the Leviathan), it foretells of end-time troubles which are to come upon Israel and the whole world. Israel is surrounded on all side by enemy nations that threaten its very existence. In the near future these enemy nations will launch and all out attack upon (Pisces) Israel in an attempt to annihilate the children of promise. The Messiah (Pegasus) who came, redeemed at Calvary and obtained blessing will come quickly and pour out blessing upon a famishing, groaning creation and save the woman (Andromeda – the bride), which is chained unable to rise.

    To know more, read more!

    Gen 1:14-15 – Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.

    Cetus (Sea Monster) consists of 97 stars and is the largest of all the constellations and depicts the image of a large scaly beast with a large head. The Sea Monster is a natural enemy and a devourer of the fish.  A chain is fashioned to the Sea Monster’s neck which is connected to the two fishes (Pisces). Some of the stars in Cestus are “Menkar” the bound and chained enemy. “Diphda” over thrown or thrusted down, “Mira” which means “THE REBEL”

    Summary: Cestus represents the Devil, The Rebel, the devourer, Leviathan and a natural enemy of Israel, and all the saints of God.

    piscesPisces (The Fishes) consist of 113 stars and depict the image of two fishes. One pointed northward toward the northern star (heavenly calling of Israel and all believers) and one horizontal toward the sun (earthly Kingdom and inheritance of Abraham’s seed both spiritual and earthly blessings). The two fishes are bound together with a chain or ribbon with the other end in the serpent’s mouth (Cestus or Sea Monster).

    Summary: Pisces represents the people of Israel and the multiplication of children of promise.

    pegasusPegasus (Winged Horse) consists of 89 stars and depicts the image of a horse running forth with great speed with wings spreading back over its shoulders.  The brightest star in the constellation is Scheat, which means “who goes and returns), then the star “Markab means “returning from far away.” And lastly the bright star named Algeneb which means “who carries.”  Some other lesser stars in the constellation Pegasus have the meaning of “the branch” and “the waters.”  Pegasus is the imagery of Jesus Christ, returning on a great white horse to a famished world.

    Summary: Pegasus represents the Messiah who came; redeemed and obtained blessing will come quickly to pour out blessing upon a groaning creation.

    andromedaAndromeda (the Chained Woman) consists of 63 stars depicts the image of a beautiful woman, with chains fastened to her feet and arms, which prohibits her from rising. Some of the stars in the constellation have names like Al Phiratz that means “the broken down” and Mirach “the weak”, Al Anak “struck down”,  Mizar, “the weak”, and Al Mara, “the afflicted.”  The imagery of Andromeda points to Israel and being surrounded by powers of darkness which threaten and want to destroy Israel.  Her chained feet are however pointed to the Redeemer.

    Summary: Andromeda represents Israel (and Christian nations) who were redeemed at Calvary but find themselves surrounded by jealous nation who want to destroy them. Andromeda represents Israel and the bride of Christ whom Jesus Christ will come for and rescue them from the powers of darkness.

    Conclusion:

    By piecing together the meaning of each constellation and the order the comet passes through the celestial bodies along with the uniqueness of a new moon (Nissan 1, 5773 – Julian Calendar March 12, 2013) ushering in the first day of the Jewish religious calendar, tells me that this is a warning to Israel and that the devourer (Cetus -Leviathan) is coming to try and destroy Israel. The enemies of Israel are driven by the forces of darkness with such hate and jealous over the prosperity of material goods and ownership of the Holy Land. Israel is surrounded on every border by enemy nations (Cetus) whose intent is the utter annihilation of Israel. (Ps. 2:1)

    Things are about to get much worse for Israel (Pisces) as the world enters into the time of the final conflict which will culminate at Armageddon. However, when all seems lost, the sky shall rollback like a scroll (Rev. 6:14) and the whole world will see the Messiah coming in all His Glory. (Pegasus) Rev. 6:12

    Israel will be at its weakest moment when the Messiah returns riding on a great white horse (Pegasus). Israel will accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah and He will then loose her (Andromeda) from the chains that have bound her feet and arms when they believe.

    Scripture References:

    (Cetus – the Devil) For behold, the LORD is about to come out from His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; And the earth will reveal her bloodshed And will no longer cover her slain. In that day the LORD will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, With His fierce and great and mighty sword, Even Leviathan the twisted serpent; And He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea. Is. 26:21 – Is. 27:1

    (Andromeda – the Bride) Awake, awake, Clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion; Clothe yourself in your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; For the uncircumcised and the unclean Will no longer come into you. Shake yourself from the dust, rise up, O captive Jerusalem; Loose yourself from the chains around your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For thus says the LORD, “You were sold for nothing and you will be redeemed without money.” Is. 52:1-3

    For thus says the LORD, “You were sold for nothing and you will be redeemed without money.” You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its remotest parts And said to you, ‘You are My servant, I have chosen you and not rejected you. ‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Behold, all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; Those who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish. Is. 41:8-11

    (Pisces -the Fishes) That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. Gen. 22:17-18

    Many believers are unaware of the true origin of biblical astronomy was given to Adam by God

    Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? Job 38:31-33

  • Emerging Ones

    Emerging Bodies
    Journal Entry:
    3/04/2013

    Young Man and Woman Giving Food and Water to Homeless ManI heard the Father say during the night two words, “Emerging Bodies.” He said it so clearly. It is important to rehearse what you hear in the night from the Lord over and over again so you remember exactly what and the way it was said. When I woke up this morning I easily recalled His words, “Emerging Bodies.”

    I went into prayer time, as I do each morning, and began to seek the Father as to what He meant when He said, “Emerging Bodies.”  I looked up the word “Emerging” in the dictionary and it means:

    adj.; e-mer-ging: Newly formed or just coming into prominence; emergent. Then I looked up bodies and sensed the intended meaning was “a number of persons, concepts, or things regarded as a group.”

     Then Holy Spirit directed me to read Jeremiah 32:37-44 is about a re-gathering of people and in this case Israelites to come back to God and be obedient and faithful with one heart and one way.

    “Behold, I will gather them out of all the lands to which I have driven them in My anger, in My wrath and in great indignation; and I will bring them back to this place and make them dwell in safety.  They shall be My people, and I will be their God; and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good and for the good of their children after them.Jer.32:39

    Jeremiah 32 also speaks of a corrupt religious system in a corrupt nation, which had turned to the worship of Baal and Molech.

    “They built the high places of Baal that are in the valley of Ben-hinnom to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I had not commanded them nor had it entered My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. Jer. 32:35

    Baal means “possessor” and was the god of increase. Baal is also defined as self-worship and a love for the things of the world. Baal worshippers put a high priority on prosperity, riches, increase, control and power, which is all greed driven. This defines the heart of the world system which has also infiltrated into what we know today as the church system, which began taking root before the end of first century A.D.

    Paul wrote, “I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them. Acts 20:29-30

     Today’s prosperity gospel is just one example of greedy self-worship for the things of this world and is a perfect example of turning ones back to God and seeking after things for self.

    However, the Father is calling forth the ones who have not allowed the corruption of the world to cause them to turn their back on Him. He has created in a people who are of one heart and one way and they will begin to emerge from their places of hiddenness and come forth ministering Jesus Christ to the nations. They will go out into the streets, ghettos, gang infested neighborhoods, swamps, valleys and to highest alps to reach the neglected people of the nations. This group of believers will minister love and healing and teaching them about God and how He will provide for them. These are the very people society and the churches have given up on.  The “Emerging Bodies” will be as the hands and feet of Jesus which will bring in the end-time harvest of the Lord. Sometime ago, I heard the Lord say, “The bride of Christ comes not so much from the churches but the world.”  Read “The Assignments” http://seerofgod.com/archives/1940

    “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son.”And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come. “Again he sent out other slaves saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast.”‘ “But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them.”But the king was enraged, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their city on fire. “Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. ’Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.’ “Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests. Mat. 22:1-10

    Examine yourself and be honest before God asking Him to show you anything that is unpleasing in your life. Time is short! The tares are coming into maturity and there is a clear line of separation being formed between the ones who show a form of godliness yet deny the power of Jesus Christ and the ones who worship Him with all their hearts and are willing to sacrifice their lives for Him.

    “They shall be My people, and I will be their God; and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good and for the good of their children after them. “I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me. “I will rejoice over them to do them good and will faithfully plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul.”For thus says the LORD, ‘Just as I brought all this great disaster on this people, so I am going to bring on them all the good that I am promising them. Jer. 32:38-42

    One Heart – One Way, Come Forth Emerging Bodies!

  • The Assignments

    The Assignments

    Journal Entry Dream Date: 2/20/2013

    assignmentI was sitting in a room watching a man give a presentation with beautiful and skillfully made charts and graphs, which were so clear and precise that everyone in attendance could easily understand his message.  I said to myself, “Wow, this is an awesome presentation!”

    Then in the next scene a man was standing in front of an “U” shaped table with about a dozen people seated around it. Then he looked at one man and showed him about a certain matter and then dispatched the man to go and do it. This was repeated over and over as assignments  out. Each time I hoped my name would be called but after all the assignments were handed out I didn’t have one. I felt left out…then I woke up.

    End

    Meaning:

    The Father has orchestrated the final day assignments to the ones whom He has prepared to go and to do what He gives them to do. They will not get in one another’s way but will follow the leading of Holy Spirit.  Understand that they are not perfect people but they are willing vessels who have submitted to the purging, purifying and refining of the Lord. The Lord is showing us that now is the time for this to happen. You many have felt like you had been through a lot of training and preparation in walk and but nothing ever seemed to come from it. Hidden away like a vessel of honor, reserved only for special occasions. But now the days of being hidden are coming to an end. The Father is dispatching His trusted servants to go out into the world and harvest the Bride of Christ and to be a witness of the His Truths to a wicked and perverse generation.

    opening envelopeIn scene 2 of the dream I didn’t get an assignment and I pondered as to why I was left out. I went to the Lord and asked Him what I didn’t get an assignment. Immediately, He reminded me that I already had my assignment and I knew what it was. “Yes, Father you’re right I do.” He gave it to me in 2008. Sometimes the Lord has to remind us what we are truly here on earth for. From my experience in the walk, there have been so many years in the wilderness being groomed; waiting for the release so I we can go and do what He has shown us to do. At times it becomes easy to doubt that it will ever happen. However, now the Lord is handing out assignments to certain individuals and releasing them to go and to do and glorify His name in the earth. He is our CAPTAIN! The COMMANDER in CHIEF! HAIL to the KING!

    Who are the ones getting the final day assignments?

    The scriptures explain it clearly.

    “Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name.  “They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. Malachi 3:16-18

    His “own possession” is His bride and what do they speak to one another. Why are they in such harmony?  

    Now read what these laborers say to one another and to the ones they minister too.

    Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying. “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost. Rev 22:14-17

    The servants who are being dispatched are laborers to go out into the fields and bring in the last day harvest. In Malachi 3 they have become the Lord’s possession which is His bride and they speak to one another “Come”. The bride of Christ has a heart for Jesus Christ in such a strong way that their ever living moment is to tell others about His goodness and invite them into His presence. The last day assignment is to bring in the lost souls and backsliders unto Christ. These laborers have a powerful anointing to carry out their assignment to testify and win souls, to heal the sick and deliver the afflicted from the power of darkness. They will seek out those who have been forgotten and given up on. They will enter the most dangerous ghettos, the scummiest places on earth. They will go into the back woods, the swamps and even up to the highest remote mountain tops to minister Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ says to you to “Come” and now is the time to “Come” forth.

    Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. Dan. 12:3

  • The Good Book

    The Good Book

    Journal Entry Dream Date: 2/8/13

    BibleSome close friends and family members had read a really good book that was timely, filled with simple truth, and so refreshing that is changed their life, and they wanted me to read it too. I took the book and began to read it and just as it did with them, it changed my life. The book was so enjoyable and brought everyone who read it great joy and happiness. It had great examples of life and explained things in a simple joyous way. It was truly the “Good Book”.

    Then I walked into the church I used to attend and selected to sit by a young man I had mentored from time to time. He was sitting with his face to the wall, staring at three unlit communion candles, which were about one foot directly in front of him. He didn’t acknowledge that I was there due to his complete concentration on his religious duties. As I scooted by him to take my seat, I knocked the communion candles over. I chuckled inside with the sight of the religious ritual being disrupted. However, he quickly set the candles back up, refocused his concentration and starred away. Then I noticed that he was holding the same book I was reading in his left hand.

    Then the preacher began to teach out of the “Good Book”. In fact He had the whole church reading the same book. However, the more he spoke the less I recognized the book I had so enjoyed.  I even questioned that he was reading the same book that I and my friends had just read. I said to myself “Who would want to read this book the way this man is teaching from it. He had taken away the simplistic message, all the joy, and the refreshing meaning away.”

    Then I reached over to the man I had just sat down by and asked to look at the book. He gladly handed it to me. I just had to verify that this was the same book I had read. As I opened the cover, I immediately saw page after page of colorful, worldly material had been inserted into the original text. The pages were brightly colored, like that of the funny papers you get in the Sunday edition each week. Someone had added so much of their material to the “Good Book” that it had lost its ability to bring joy and refreshment to the reader. No one wanted to read it and there was no true joy among his congregation.

    Then someone in leadership came up behind the man sitting beside me and poked him in the back and said, “Come with me.” Then the man in leadership pointed at the unlit communion candles and told me to sit there and watch the candles. As I continued to sat there and listened to the preacher preach about everything but the simple truths the “Good Book” has to offer, I saw why people had lost their joy. The meetings were no longer refreshing because they had left the simple truths. This man was preaching his own doctrine.

    End –

    Meaning:

    Hand ReachingThe Bible was given to mankind to instruct, refresh and bring great joy with its simple to understand and follow truths. When I say simple I don’t mean it in a disparaging way. Simple means easy to understand and follow. The Bible is filled with hundreds and hundreds of uplifting Psalms and promises which were given to mankind by Almighty God, so that we may prove out to be good, wise, fruitful servants of the most high God. To live out simple truths that aren’t burdensome. Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” Oh what joy He is too!

    Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body
    And refreshment to your bones. Pro 3:5-8

    Holy Spirit is our teacher and will illuminate spiritual truths found in the text to anyone who is seeking truth. On the other hand, man has chosen to lean to his own understanding, which by adding his own doctrines to the Bible, has taken away the refreshment that only simple truths can bring to your life. Are you tired of the “Ten Steps to Prosperity”? How about “Twenty Things to Do To Get Victory Activated In You Life”? These kinds of teaching are burdensome. Try, try as we may we can’t live by the letter of the word. We must live by the Spirit and be led by the Spirit each day. In so doing you begin to sense a small river of living water flowing from you to others. Oh how we need it!

    Years ago when first starting out on this walk, I found my personal, daily walk so fun and refreshing. However, when I attended church and heard the message given by the preacher, I often left depressed, sad and condemned. The message wasn’t God’s message for the people, but man’s perverted doctrine which had been added spoken.

    All the additions to the simple truth of the Bible, read The Additions | Walking In the Supernatural have taken away the joy and refreshing message away. It is estimated that there are over 38,000 denominations in America alone. Each one of them believes differently from the others, which means they have added their understanding to the simple truth.  There is only one truth and that is given to us by Holy Spirit.

    Some years ago when studying about what true evangelism entails, I asked the Father what a church on every corner meant to Him. Immediately He responded with one word, “Division.”  Then I asked, “What is theology to you?” He responded with, “It is man’s attempt to explain what he doesn’t understand.”

    Your joy and refreshing will come from an intimate, live, active relationship with Jesus Christ and learning to see Him and all the wonder of His creation throughout each day of your life. As you take the focus away from yourself and begin to focus on the needs of others you will begin to sense a refreshing joy come into your soul. When you are kind to others and lend a hand, even a cup of water to who thirst, it is the same as giving it to Jesus Christ.

    The Challenge

    Couple Holding Shopping BasketWhat if every church canceled one meeting a week? Each congregation was instructed not to come to church that day but instead take the money (they were going to give into the church system) and go find people in their family or community that need help and give it to them with no  alternative motive but to help. No intent to grow their congregation whatsoever, just help people. What a difference it will make in the people who give of themselves to others, even more than the ones who receive. Read The Abandoned Harvest

    Some years ago, my wife and I volunteered to work in the needy children program in our city. We would box up food, along with some nice toys and take the goods to the needy family on our distribution list. This was our holiday fun event each Christmas. On one particular trip we took a large amount of toys and food to some kids who were were in the care of their grandmother due to their mother being in prison.

    We parked in front of their house and I grabbed the bags of toys and began walking towards the house. The kids were excited to see us and came running out of the house directly at us. I was dismayed when the kids ran past me, and my booty of toys, and went to my wife which was caring some of the bags of groceries. The oldest child said, “Now that’s what I’m talking about!” Kids not interested in toys? What is this? I’d never seen such hungry kids. They wanted food more than toys? This really touched us. We didn’t know kids were going hungry in America.

     We left there and went back to the administrator of the program and told her that this family needed more food that we brought to them. As it ended up we made another trip that day, taking more food to these hungry little souls. They even put the family on a weekly grocery program so they wouldn’t go hungry.

    The feeling of giving and helping others brought such a warm, loving, joyous meaning to our lives. So, If you want refreshing and joy to return to your Christian walk, then find the heart of Jesus Christ and Father God and go help souls in your family and your own community. Take what’s in your power to do and put it in the hands of those in need.

    What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” James 2:15-18

    May it be so!

    They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. The LORD [is] gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. Ps, 145:7-8

    Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners: The LORD openeth [the eyes of] the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. Ps. 146:7-9

    “And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I
    say to you, he shall not lose his reward.” Mat. 10:42

    Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God. 1 Cor. 4:5 (note…in this verse darkness means the secret areas where you good deeds are hidden where only God can see them. It’s not an evil darkness at all.)

     



  • The Hurricane

    The Hurricane

    Journal Entry
    Date:1/27/2013
    Dream

    Typhoon PatI saw a giant and powerful hurricane that was still far out at sea, but its impact was already being felt in the United States. The hurricane was wound up very tight like a circular saw blade, cutting through everything in its path. The streets were empty of people except a few emergency support workers standing outside their emergency support jeep. One man said, “The storm is so far away and yet we’re already feeling the high winds and rain.” They began tying 100 pound weights to each corner of the jeep in an attempt to keep it from blowing off the roadway.  I said, “That won’t work. This storm is the strongest storm ever.”

    Meaning:

    I woke up immediately after the dream with a sense of awe at the power of this storm. This storm produced such high winds that nothing in its path would survive. I believe extreme turbulent times are coming to the United States of America and the time to prepare is now. Get in the ark of God’s protection and lead as many as will come along with you.

    The time to prepare for a great storm is well before the first signs of the storm approach. If you wait to see if the prophecy of this dream is true before you respond then you are no different than the people were in the day of Noah. Noah preached and warned of the impending flood to come and the judgment came and destroyed all the people on earth but eight people who entered into the ark.

    Hurricane Damage“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Mat 24:37-39

    Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth. Gen. 6:13

    Then the LORD said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time. “For after seven more days, I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; and I will blot out from the face of the land every living thing that I have made.” It came about after the seven days, that the water of the flood came upon the earth. Gen 7:1, 4, 10

    In the days of Noah the people were ignoring the continous warnings be given by the prophet of God. It is no different today. People are still going about life like it is never going to change. They don’t see the prophetic warning signs of our immediate times that are right in our face as a nation. God is a God of mercy but He will only wait so long before He closes the door of the ark. If you aren’t on board then you will perish along with all the other wicked people.

  • The Attack

    Journal Entry – Dream Date 1/23/2013

    The Attack

    our house attackJae and I were sitting in our home as the forces of darkness attacked it with all their veracity and might. I watched the attack occurring from a God view so to speak. I witnessed the roof and walls tremor slightly as the intensity of the demonic attack strengthened. This kind of attack is continuous against the saints but the Lord has placed angels around us who continually fight off the forces of evil.

    As I watched the structure shutter over and over again I saw Jae and I sitting in our recliners all but unaware this assault was ongoing.

    End –

    Meaning:

    I was unaware of the continuous spiritual warfare that takes place around us on a daily basis. I know at times in the past that the Father would take the hedge down just enough to allow me to sense evil’s attack against me so I would recognize that I wasn’t fully trusting in the Lord. However, I was not aware that we are under attack all the time and without the help of the angels of the Lord, guarding and protecting us, we would certainly be wiped out. This dream is directly related to the angelic footsteps I heard on the roof of our home in late December. That journal entry was published on Jan. 21, 2013 The Footsteps of Angels

    What the Lord is revealing to me in this dream that we can trust in Him no matter what we see or what we don’t see happening. He is able to keep us and no one can snatch us out of His hand. That is His promise to us. It is vital to put on the whole armor of God daily and to trust in Jesus Christ with all your heart for in Him and Him alone is life eternal.

    I give thanks to my Father whom I trust in with all my heart and I hope you find this dream to bring comfort and high praise for all the Father does for His flock! Amen!

    Bro. Bill

    Scripture References:

    “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” John 10-27-29

    The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them. Ps 34:7 Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come; You have given commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress. Ps 71:3 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. Ps. 91:11

    So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 2 kings 6:16

    Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? Heb 1:14



  • The Footsteps of Angels

    Footsteps of Angels

    Journal Entry
    Date: 12/28/2012

    heb 1_14It was around 10:30 A.M. on a Tuesday and I was in my office, which is located upstairs in our home. I was working on a video production for a client when all of sudden, I heard the sound of what sounded like angels running around on the roof. The pace and urgency of the footsteps sounded if there were two angels engaged in warfare of some kind with another being of some sort. What it was I can’t be for sure. It just seemed in my spirit that this was what it was about. The footsteps only lasted about 10 seconds and then all was quiet once again.

    Note* Our roof has a 1:1 pitch ratio, which means for every horizontal foot the elevation rises in by 1 foot making it impossible for anyone to be up there running around.

    Commentary:

    If we could only see the amazing host of angels that are all about us every day to render aid and provide ministry to us when we need it. And, not only to just the saints but to the ones whom have not yet acknowledged Jesus as Lord. I had a follow up dream to this experience which is titled “The Attack” and you can read at The Attack

    Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17

    Jesus Christ died for mankind and His blood was sprinkled on the altar in heaven for all mankind. It is His desire that none should perish.

    “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. John 10:27-28

    When I repented, I had to know from the Father why He allowed me to live when I was such a sinner and wayward for so many years. I had experienced many situations in which I should have died but each time I came out unharmed and very alive. Morning after morning, I continued to raise the question before Him, “Why did you not wipe me off the face of the earth Father? One morning, He responded, “Love is eternal.”  There is was as plain as could be. The character of God is love and it is not the human kind of love which has so many condition attached to it. This is God’s kind of love which makes no distinction due to our human conditions or deeds. He even loves those who have rejected Him.

    Spiritual Warfare

    Just because we can’t see the angels which surround us doesn’t mean that they are not there. Indeed they are all about us.

    Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? Heb. 1:14

    If it wasn’t for angels defending the saints, evil would be able to wipe us out even before we knew we were in danger. It would be that fast. WHAM…YOUR DEAD! But with angelic intervention we often have no idea that an attack even occurred. It just happened on this particular morning that I was allowed to hear the angel’s footsteps running around hastily on the roof, defending me from evil. The battle was short lived since God’s angels are so much mighty than we are.

    “Whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.” 2 Peter 2:11

    We live in such a broken world and there is evil all about us daily. Hidden in the carnage of life there are many miracles occurring every second of the day. It has been that way since the beginning of man.

    The living and loving God said to me, “Love is Eternal.” That’s the Father I know and love because He first loved me.

  • There’s No Corn

    There’s No Corn

    Journal Entry
    Dream
    Date: 1/10/2013

    Ear of Corn Ripening in FieldI was standing in a field and I heard a voice say, “There’s no corn!” I looked and saw that the corn crop had failed. It was bad! Prices were sky high. I said, “If a town can grow corn it will put them on the map!”

    End-

    Meaning:

    In 2012 America suffered one of the largest droughts in modern times, which ultimately expanded to two-thirds of the nation. The corn crop was reduced by one-third from its normal production level. The only saving grace for many farmers was that more corn had been planted than normal.

    The weather patterns have not changed for the better in the effected drought areas. I believe that this year’s harvest will be more worse, causing a catastrophic impact to corn harvest. Corn is America’s largest crop and it is used in food manufacturing, feed, and is a large export to the world markets. A crop failure in corn will have a huge global impact both in the financial and commodity markets.

    On April 2, 2012 I was given the dream I titled in a blog as The Fisherman and the Hunter , which revealed “famine” was coming to America.  If a city wants to make a name for themselves they will do whatever it takes to grow corn because if you succeed the rewards will be huge.

    Note: The corn belt (growing area) is Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota, South Dakota, Michigan, Kansas and Kentucky.  These corn producing  states are in some form of drought conditions. See the map US Drought Monitor

    The reason these things are happening is because God is bringing redemptive judgments upon America to get her to return to Him. America will not turn until she has suffered great pain. Please read the blog America – Dull of Hearing!

    The answer is repentance as a nation and that will come when America has suffered great pain and prays accordingly 2 Chronicles 7:14

    If my people, which are called by my 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. 2 Chronicles 7:14

    God Bless,

    Bro. Bill

    7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. Matt 24:7

    I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. Rev 6:8

    “To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A WIDOW, and will never see mourning. “For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.

  • The Charismatic

    Journal Entry Dream –
    Jan/7/2013

    Title: The Charismatic

    I was sitting on the back row between two ladies in a charismatic church service. The lady sitting to my left showed me a book that she was reading. I opened it up and read the majority of it really fast and said, “It has some good things in there (so as not to be rude), but that’s not it.” The lady on my right gave me her book and I read it and gave it back to her as I shook my head and said, “That’s not it at all.”

    the long roadThe band began to lead the worship time and immediately all the people lifted up their hands up as they sang because that is what charismatics do. You don’t look like you are worshiping or will you appear very spiritual unless you lift your hands during the praise and worship service. As I listened to the people sing I was quite taken back when they lifted their voices at the chorus:

    It’s a long damn road

    It’s a long damn road

    It’s a long damn road

    Oh it’s a long damn road

    I cracked up as they sang it. I joined in with them since I understood why they were singing these words. After the service a man came up to me and I asked him, “How did you like the service? He responded, “I didn’t like it at all!” I replied, “Perhaps you just aren’t used to it?”

    End-

    Interpretation:

    As shocking as this dream may be too those who read it, it is a truth being revealed in these last days. Christ is calling out His bride unto Himself and to as many as will listen, He says, “Come! Come out from among them.” The Greek word for “church” is ekklesia which means “called out ones”. Chuch isn’t a building. It is a group of believers called unto Jesus Christ. There are no walls or separation from one another or Chirst. Read The Adulterous Church: http://seerofgod.com/archives/713

    The charismatic churches were birthed out of believers seeking a spiritual refreshing which was not found in the traditional church system. They wanted to be spirit-led believers and see the gifts of the Spirit in action. In the beginning of the movement the Spirit did lead them into some truths. However, in time the movement became stagnant and misguided focusing more on self than the leading of the Spirit. Today, most charismatics live more in past experiences than in today’s life in Christ experiences. One reason there is so much HYPE generated in the organized churches today is an effort to convince the congregation that the Spirit is moving when it is not. If Holy Spirit is moving you don’t have to tell people that the Spirit is moving, they will know for themselves.

    The charismatic is taught that they can obtain the things of God’s Kingdom if you just “work the WORD.” If you or someone needs a healing then you “work the WORD.” If you need a blessing in your life then you find a verse that supports your cause and you “work the WORD” until you see it manifest. The people are taught that if they keep confessing and confessing the WORD that somehow it will get into your spirit and you will get whatever it is that you need to get, and if it doesn’t manifest then the person isn’t doing it correctly. No one can manipulate God no matter how much you try. He is soverign and will always remain soverign.

    When the “Prayer of Jabez” was so popular and it seemed as if everyone was buying the book, praying the prayer, so that their territory would be expanded. They repeated the prayer over and over without any results. Why? I say, because for most people it was a selfish act, done out of an attempt to get material gain from the use of the WORD. As believers we’re to seek Christ got Himself and not what we want.

    “Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested.” 1 Chronicles 4:10

    crowd of people bwThe reason I chuckled to myself at them in the dream was because they are taught bad doctrines and have so little understanding of their purpose in the Christian walk. False knowledge leads to false expectations, which leads to discouragement, making their journey a “long damn road”. The song they sang in the dream is very appropriate for the way most of them feel if they were to be truthful. In the dream the man I spoke with sensed in his spirit that something wasn’t right in the church service. People were going through the motion, acting like they were experiencing the move of the Spirit, when inside they were weary from the effects of the years of false doctrine. Weariness had set in because they had seen no results from what they have been taught.

    I’ve seen small and large prayer circles formed where the charismatic leaders would pray aloud saying, “Lord, we turn to the north and call in the blessing and provisions of God, we call in the people into our house and the wealth of the wicked into our hands…” Then all the people turned to the north and repeated the prayer. This action was repeated for the east, south and west as well. It sounded good and looked to be spiritual but it didn’t bring forth any obvious results. It was selfishly motivated and spiritually ignorant of the plans and purposes of the believer in Christ.

    True blessings come from living a life as described in the verse below:

    “Do not let kindness and truth leave you;
    Bind them around your neck,
    Write them on the tablet of your heart.
    4 So you will find favor and good repute
    In the sight of God and man. “ Pro. 3:3-4

    In other words you cannot obtain things by misuse of the WORD.  It is a matter of becoming like Christ by abiding in a continual intimacy with Him. It’s about RELATIONSHIP! Christ doesn’t want to increase you, He wants to reduce to to nothing so He can fill you with His Spirit. Jesus did not pray for the sick, He healed them. He did not pray for someone’s deliverance, He delivered them. Why, because He was ONE with God and in God. He was the WORD made flesh.

    I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. JN 15:5,7

    There are no shortcuts with God and there is no other way but Jesus Christ. He is the WAY.  He is a person and He wants us to be so close to Him so that we become like Him in our lives. We won’t and cannot be a savior but as we draw close to Him, His Spirit permeates our spirit and His presence is upon us more and more. Then when we minister in the gifts of the Spirit it isn’t a thing we do, but it is Jesus in us ministering to the people. Smith Wigglesworth and John G. Lake are two men who come to mind that pressed into the presences of God so much that as they ministered Christ ministered to the ones in need. They spirit was permeated by the Spirit of Jesus Christ. When Smith Wigglesworth prayed no one could stay in the same room with Him. He was permeated with the Spirit of the Lord. Once when he stepped onto a train immediately after praying a man asked him, “Who are you and what are you?” That’s power came from spending time in the presence of the Father.

    hands raised cryout smallToo many, for too long have chased after the gifts of the Spirit, but not after the GIFTER of spiritual gifts.  They have followed after the anointed ones instead of becoming anointed themselves. All the past spiritual movements ended up with the formation of an organized church system of some type. The 1906 Azusa Street revival broke out and traveled the globe, touching so many by the outpouring of Holy Spirit, but eventually ended up becoming the Pentecostal Church system. The main reason this happens is that the people focus on the experience and not the person of Jesus Christ. They pursued the gifts and not the gifter. The three disciples on the Mount of Transfiguration wanted to build three tabernacles and camp out there as if it was an end all be all experience. Jesus was going to lead the disciples beyond the transfiguration experience. He was yet to say the words “Eat My flesh and drink My blood.” He wanted them to consume Him and by doing so He would consume them. He would permeated their spirit with His.

    “Six days later Jesus *took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and *led them up on a high mountain by themselves. 2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light. 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. 4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” 5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!” 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground and were terrified. 7 And Jesus came to them and touched them and said, “Get up, and do not be afraid.” 8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus Himself alone.” Matt 17:1-8

    Jesus is a person, not an experience. He wants each believer to have spiritual experiences and you will if you will seek Him to know Him in a personal relationship. But we don’t seek Jesus for the experiences. The multitudes followed Him for food only. He wants people to come to Him in sincerity, letting go of all pretenses, and surrender to Him with an intense desire to know Him.

    When a believer quits moving (growing) forward toward Christ they become a sentimental Christian, living off past experiences, which leads to traditionalism in the body of Christ. Jesus prevented the disciples from taking a spiritual experience and turning it into a shrine. Instead, He said to them to keep it to yourself for now and let’s move on because I have more to show you about glorifying the Father with in this life.

    He has greater plans for your life than just trying to be spiritual. He wants you to come to Him and abide in His presence so He can infuse your spirit and do the “GREATER WORKS”.

  • The Russians Are Coming

    Journal Entry

    December 1, 2012
    Dream

    The Russians Are Coming

    russian cargo jetI saw in a vision of the night the inside of an American forward observation post, which primarily monitored Russia. There was a man in front of me pointing to two icons on green transparent glass screen with had grids and markers which indicated the location of aircraft movement over Russia. He said, “See these two are Russian giant military cargo planes disguised as commercial aircraft and they’re headed our way.” I looked at the images he pointed out real hard on the map and I didn’t’ see anything unusual whatsoever. He knew about the Russian’s secret plan from another source apparently.

    I then stepped outside on to an observation deck to watch for the two large cargo planes to fly over our location. It wasn’t long before I looked up and spotted two giant cargo planes flying overhead. It was an eerie sight to watch knowing they were filled with Russian soldiers and military equipment and were headed to invade the United States of America.

    -End

    UPDATE:     Russian Forces to Provide “Security” At US Events

    Meaning:

    In the prophetic dream, the Russians have a plan to mask the identity of military cargo aircraft as commercial air traffic, and fly them into America for a surprise strategic sneak attack. On the radar they will appear as normal international commercial aircraft, but each giant military cargo plane will be filled with Russian soldiers and military equipment. This will be a coordinated attack across many locations in America.  I can surmise that these Russian planes will land after a our air defenses and nuclear capability has been wiped out by missiles fired from off shore nuclear Russian submarines and from missiles fired from Cuba, Mexico, South American and perhaps even China, North Korea and Iran.

    One of the media news outlets, The Washington Free Beacon, reported in mid-August 2012, a Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-ranged cruise missiles secretly operated undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks to a month.  Another alarming incursion took place in July, 2012 when a Bear H strategic bomber entered U.S.A.. air space off the cost of California.  But now as recent as when hurricane Sandy hit the east coast a Russian Sierra-2 class submarine was detected 200 miles off the east coast.

    In summary, America will be invaded by foreign forces in the not too distant future. The decline of America as a world leader has never been as apparent in the world as it is today. The lack of

    strength shown by the current president has emboldened our enemies to commit to a plan to take America down.

    (As revealed to prophet Dumitru Duduman…Babylon represents America in the verses below.)

    Dumitru Duduman’s Dreams & Visions Link

    Jeremiah 51:7-14

     

    Babylon has been a golden cup in the hand of the Lord,
    Intoxicating all the earth.
    The nations have drunk of her wine;
    Therefore the nations are going mad.
    8 Suddenly Babylon has fallen and been broken;
    Wail over her!
    Bring balm for her pain;
    Perhaps she may be healed.
    9 We applied healing to Babylon, but she was not healed;
    Forsake her and let us each go to his own country,
    For her judgment has reached to heaven
    And towers up to the very skies.
    10 The Lord has brought about our vindication;
    Come and let us recount in Zion
    The work of the Lord our God!

    11 Sharpen the arrows, fill the quivers!
    The Lord has aroused the spirit of the kings of the Medes,
    Because His purpose is against Babylon to destroy it;
    For it is the vengeance of the Lord, vengeance for His temple.
    12 Lift up a signal against the walls of Babylon;
    Post a strong guard,
    Station sentries,
    Place men in ambush!
    For the Lord has both purposed and performed
    What He spoke concerning the inhabitants of Babylon.
    13 O you who dwell by many waters,
    Abundant in treasures,
    Your end has come,
    The measure of your end.

     



  • The Tornados

    Journal Entry
    Date: October 24, 2012
    Dream: The Tornado

    TornadoI was in my home town with my wife and daughter when I saw in a distance a small dark cloud forming on the horizon. Slowly an elongated funnel began to extend out to the right and downward to the earth.  As I watched the tornado became more and more defined. Then in the next scene of the dream, the tornado was much closer, not quite as dark making it harder to see, however it had become very strong. I looked around to see if anyone else was seeing the violent tornado approaching, but no one seemed to see it coming but me. I grabbed my daughter by the hand and said, “We have to go and we have to go now!” My wife, daughter and I all ran back as fast as we could to my father’s house for protection from the storm. At my father’s house I looked out the front door at the tornado that was almost upon us when miraculously the tornado fizzled out just before it destroyed the house to our great relief. We were saved by the protection of being in my father’s house.

    Dream: The Tornado

    (This is a dream my wife had the next night)

    I was in my home town driving in a car with five other people when I saw to the left a very large tornado forming in front of us. It was moving across the ground left to right destroying building. There was a bar filled with people which were all killed because they didn’t’t see it coming. It was very frightening to watch but the violent tornado passed us by. We were supernaturally saved.

    End of dream

    Interpretation:

    There are multiple great storms approaching the earth of which worldly people will not see coming because they are blind to the end-times we are in. God is bringing more and more “redemptive” judgments to America as well as the world in order to bring nations to repentance.  At the time of Christ’s return it will just as it was in the days of Noah. The great flood came and washed all but eight people away.

    As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. Matthew 24: 37-41

    Jesus warned us to be on alert and that we may have strength to escape the judgments and great trials which are to come upon the earth in the end of days.  We must not wait another day to begin to get ready. We will need every bit of time that is left to prepare for the great storm which is coming.

    Just this past week  the United States received a redemptive judgment when hurricane Sandy battered the northeastern states.  A few years back the Lord spoke to me and said, “America has become dull of hearing and will not wake up until she has suffered great pain”  read blog America – Dull of Hearing

    “But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” LK 21:36

    Great Storms ComingIn Matthew 25, the parable of the ten virgins we find five wise and five foolish. They all were in delay, experiencing the same things together but big difference is the five wise virgins had flask filled with oil to sustain them through the long delay until the bridegroom appeared. The flask represents the soul of the believer and the oil is from Holy Spirit. The oil comes from spending time in prayer, supplication with great determination to know the Father.

    “Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. “Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. “For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. “Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. “But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.‘ “Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. “The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ “But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ “And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut.  Matthew 25:1-10

    For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Matthew 24:21



  • The Lion Rising – Confirmation of Christ’s Return

    Journal Entry:

    The Lion Rising – Confirmation of Christ’s Return
    Vision
    Date: 11/4/2010

    2014 Prophetic Alignment smlI was sitting in a chair, looking up at the night sky, when I saw an outline of a lion rising from below the horizon into the heavens. The lion slowly rose followed by the outlines of many morphed angel – man – animal like figures of all sizes. Then small clusters of the most beautiful bubbles began to float up into the sky in front of me. The river in front of where I sat appeared to have bubbles coming up out of the water. I looked to my right and saw that the bubbles were being made by a young boy. He was sitting between my wife and the boy’s mother. He said to my wife, “I made the bubbles because I knew it would make you happy.” My wife kissed him on the cheek and just like a boy, he wiped off the kiss, and we all laughed. I recognized the boy as “Bradley” my grandson. He was about four years old and had sandy brown hair. I said, “I saw an angel!” and my son Jas, who was standing behind me said, “I saw it too!”

    Meaning:

    “Surely the Lord God does nothing Unless He reveals His secret counsel
    To His servants the prophets.” Amos 3: 7

    The vision is about the return of Jesus Christ and the outline of the lion represents the constellation Leo which in biblical astronomy is the Lion of Judah (Jesus Christ). In the vision the lion and the morphed angelic – man – animal figures rose up from below the horizon appearing slowly in the night sky. The morphed looking angelic -man – animal figures represent the other major and minor constellations following. Each night the constellations, made up of millions of stars make their celestial procession across our night sky as the earth rotates from west to east.

    The Lion

    Constellation Leo, the Lion is described as a great rampant Lion, leaping forth to rend. His feet are over the writhing body of Hydra, the Serpent, which is in the act of fleeing.  This is a perfect description of Jesus Christ and His dominion over Satan. Exodus 3:2. Gen 3:15 Leo is Hebrew name, Arieh, the lion rending. Psalms 80:12

    I knew in the vision that the young boy was my grandson, and he was four years old. Although at the time of vision my daughter was nine months pregnant and hadn’t’t given birth to him at the time. She gave birth to the boy in the vision nineteen days after the vision. I described his hair color as sandy blonde and how it would be parted on the left side.

    On the same day and hour his parents were married in May of 2009, I was compelled by Holy Spirit to read the book of Ruth.  The Spirit was strong on me saying, “Read Ruth! Read Ruth! Read Ruth!” As I read the four chapters page by page, the Lord revealed to me that they were as Ruth and Boaz, and they would have a son, and name him after my daughter’s late husband “Bradley” to honor, and keep his name alive. Holy Spirit also confirmed the same prophecy to my daughter as well. And just as Holy Spirit had informed us she gave birth to a boy in late November 2010 and they named him “Bradley”.  My daughter had never been able to become pregnant and we know that “Bradley” was a miracle and a wonderful gift from God to our family.

    bradleyBradley will turn two years old in November of 2012

    The Father gave me a journey in the Spirit in 2001, where I was caught up into the celestial heaven and witnessed the second coming, which I recorded in the vision “The Year”. You can read that vision with this link titled “The Yearhttp://seerofgod.com/archives/1119.  The Father has never backed down on what He revealed to me in 2001 about the year of Jesus Christ’s return.

    In this vision of the Lion (Leo) rising, the boy’s is four years old at the time of Christ’s return placing it in 2014. This is another confirmation of the vision I was giving in 2001.

    Since the boy, “Bradley” was sitting between my daughter and my wife and blowing her bubbles, I knew that he would be very close to his mother and grandmother (Meme) and indeed he is.

    In the vision the Lion was rising (Leo) which represents the end of summer and the beginning of Autumnal Equinox (Fall).

    Celestial Signals of Christ’s Return
    Zachariah 14: 6-8

    6 In that day there will be no light; the luminaries will dwindle. 7 For it will be a unique day which is known to the Lord, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening time there will be light. 8 And in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.

    Zachariah is a biblical riddle about the season in which Christ will return. There are many scriptural references of which indicated there will be great darkness upon the earth at the time of Christ’s return. Scriptural references are: Is.13:10, Is. 24:23, Jer. 4:23, Joel 3:15, Amos 5:20, Amos 8:9, Matt 24:29, Luk. 21:25-26. Acts 2:19-20, Rev 6:12-17.

    The unique day could be the fall equinox, one of the Feasts of the Lord days such as the Feast of Trumpets or both. Being that there is light at evening indicating the beginning of the unique day. If it is not summer and not winter then what season is it? It has to be the fall equinox. It is the last twilight at the end of summer and first twilight at the beginning of the fall equinox. In the Hebrew calendar each day begins at twilight (sunset). The lunar month begins when the first silver moon is visible after the dark of the moon. Two credible witnesses would report to the Sanhedrin that they had observed the new moon and it was at least fourteen hours old. Once this had occurred the priest would decree “rosh chodesh” the beginning of the month.

    Note: The actual dark of the moon occurs below the horizon making it impossible by observation to know exactly when the new moon occurs.

    The wonders of the heavens were given to man by God (Gen 1:14) as signal markers for the divine appointments (feasts) and they are where the gospel was first preached to mankind. The wise men followed the signs in the heavens which told them of the Messiah’s birth and led them to the location.

    The Gospel Is Being Preached In the Heavens Nightly

    Genesis 1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;

    Romans 10:14-18
    14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? 15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!” 16 However, they did not all heed the good news; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. 18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? Indeed they have; “Their voice has gone out into all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”

    Psalms 19: 1-6
    The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
    2 Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. 4 Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course. 6 Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

  • Reduce and Thin My Sheep

    Reduce and Thin

    July 24, 2012
    Time: 05:45 A.M.

    I was in bed asleep when I heard the Father say, “I am going to reduce My sheep and thin their wool.

    Meaning:

    Overweight Man on ScaleWhat you see in the natural often is occurring in the spiritual. Currently, in the world, obesity is on the increase and in America, nearly 40% of adults and 17% of children are obese. However, this dream isn’t about natural fat butt the kind of spiritual fat. When we are spiritually heavy we can’t be taken on the journey the Lord wants to take us on, which is God intended plan for every believer.

    The word says, “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot.’So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.”

    If a person eats without any consideration as to the ingredients, calories or fat content and goes without any exercise, they will eventually become obese, and perhaps morbidly so. It is no different in spiritual matters either. If you attend church week after week, hearing sermon after sermon and never put your faith in action you will become a fat lethargic, lazy, self-gratifying person.  As Christians we are not lazy because we’re spiritually fat…We are spiritually fat because we are lazy.

    “It shall be that when they enter at the gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and wool shall not be on them while they are ministering in the gates of the inner court and in the house. Ezek 44:17

    I heard the Father say, “I am going to “reduce” My sheep…”

    Often through the years the Father has shared His secrets with me as to what He is about to do in the Spirit. This article is about one of those things. Those who want to be the bride of Christ will both submit to the Lord in spiritual matters and be purged, purified, and refined or you will be excluded from the wedding. As in the natural you can’t lose all the excessive fat over night or even in weeks. It can take years to make the necessary changes in bad habits in eating and exercise to be free from obesity.

    About eight years ago I heard the Father say to me, “I want to take you on journeys, but you are too heavy!” I heard Him clearly and those words still resonate in my heart to this day. I want to go on those spiritual journeys with the Father. However, it is impossible the natural man to lose spiritual weight in our own capabilities. We can only fall at His feet and submit to Him and ask the Lord to begin to remove the excessive weight from our spiritual walk. I know for myself the last eight years or so has been filled with a lot of fat removing experiences and I’m sure there are more to come. When we see Him we will be like Him.

    Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. 1 JN 3:2

    I believe the Father has been and will continue to bring “redemptive” judgments upon the world and especially the United States which is the most spiritual obese nation in the world today. The purpose of these judgments is to bring us to our knees and repent to God to heal our land. 2 Chron 7:14

    People may go to church week after week and get spiritually fatter and fatter and have no real concern for the things of God. The warning given to us in the book of Revelation is that a person can be spewed out of God’s mouth like vomit because of being lukewarm. Have you ever been really thirsty and taken a drink of lukewarm water? It will certainly make you feel nauseous and disgusted. As you lifted the glass to your lips you expected a refreshing drink of water, but instead received just the opposite and you wanted to spew!

    But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. It is a trustworthy statement deserving full acceptance. 1 Tim. 4:7-9

    The Father said, “…and thin their wool.

    spinning wheel I remained in bed quietly repeating His words over and over so as not to forget them. I thought what does this mean to “thin the wool?” There are different “weights” of wool. The thicker the yarn the higher number of “weight” is given to it. As we know wool comes from sheep and must be sheared, washed and spun on a spinning wheel to make it into yarn.

    To make wool into yarn it is held in the spinner’s hands, where it is pinched, pulled upon in order to separate it from the bulk of wool.  The wool strand is then attached to the spinning wheel. The spinner rotates the spinning wheel, pinching and pulling the wool strand from the bulk wool. The harder the pinching and pulling the thinner the yarn will become.

    The Father said, “I am going to reduce My sheep and thin their wool.

    Many people are spiritual lacking, fat, lazy, lethargic, complacent, carefree, dull of hearing, unconcerned, and so forth. As in the natural we can get spiritually fat when we take (intake) in more spiritual matters than we output. Output is faith in action. Where there is no action there is no faith at work (output).

    For most so called Christians, their week goes like this. On Sunday morning they attend a church service where the listen to a sermon then the service ends, and they go back home. The rest of the week there is in no interest in being alone with God, praying, reading the Bible, witnessing, or helping others. The same cycle is repeated from week to week with little or no spiritual growth whatsoever. Does this sound familiar?

    If you haven’t noticed the churches are filled with spiritual babies. This is because they are never taught to feed themselves or learn to walk on their own towards the throne of God. The missing and most important element in the Christians walk is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and few churches ever even mention it, much less know how to teach it to their flock. It is vital to develop a personal relationship with Him and the only way to do so is by spending time with Him. As long as a person is reliant upon someone else to feed them they will remain a child in the things of Go and not fit to do the work of the Kingdom of God.

    The Father said, “I am going to reduce My sheep and thin their wool.

    If you want to be at the “wedding feast of the Lord” then you must submit to the Lord and His chastisements. Don’t be afraid to come to Him and let Him show you what must change for you to become like Him. Jesus Christ will empower you to make the changes required in order to be pleasing in His eyes. We can’t fool Him. He knows our heart. Be honest with Him. Be real!

    Purified: “Some of those who have insight will fall, in order to refine, purge and make them pure until the end time; because it is still to come at the appointed time. Dan 11:35

    This message is from the Holy Father and for those who have an understanding of the weightier things of God. The wicked will ignore it and find themselves like the five foolish virgins. Mat. 25: 1-12. The foolish virgins saw no need to make any changes. They were spiritually fat. If you have any spiritual insight you will know that this word is from God. We’re in the last days and there isn’t too much time to make the changes you need to make. We all have some priorities which are out of balance and we need to take another long look at our lives to see what is unpleasing to God.

    “Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand. Dan 12:10

    The Lord says, “He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.” Rev. 22:20

    Update: 1/3/2013 – I have found since this experience in July 2012 that I am being reduced to nothing bit by bit ln my life. Although our flesh writhes in its death throws I find the experience quite liberating although painful. This is necessary preparation for the bride of Christ.

  • The Motel (Church) Visit – Part Two

    Journal Entry

    Title: The Motel (Church) Visit – Part Two
    Dream
    Date: 4/13/2011

    I came to a particular town and was told to stay at a specific motel. I walked over to the motel and from the outside it seemed okay, but as I looked more closely at the room I could see something was terribly wrong. The room where people had stayed was in ruins and no longer suitable habitation. I knew the city authorities would soon condemn this room.

    eunuch makerAs I kept looking over the property for a suitable room to stay in I found an even bigger room, but it was an appalling ruin as well. It was made to hold a large group of people. Looking from my left to the right I could see rot, ooze and decay from the floor to ceiling. I looked farther to the right and saw many workers hurrying to plaster over the walls to cover up what was really there. As I stood in disgust at the chaotic scene, the motel owner’s wife came up to me and gave me a full frontal hug. She bounced her hips into mine as she whispered, “I love you”, in my ear, making every attempt to arouse me. She was lustful in every sense of the word. I stood still and didn’t respond to her seduction whatsoever.

    I then continued deeper into the building and came to a long hallway that led to an even larger room. There was a long line of men standing in line waiting to enter the room for something but I couldn’t see what it was. The line stretched from the front of the room all the way down the hallway where I was standing. I had to find out what was going on rather than just wait to get to the front of the line. It might be the wrong line, something I don’t need.

    I walked past the men in line to see what was happening at the front of the room. At the front of the line, I saw two men put their hands on the next man in line and wrestled him into a bent over position, exposing his scrotum. The man put up a fight but it was too late for him. He was overpowered by the strength of the other two men. Then to my horror another man came up from behind the bent over man with a pair of shears and can cut off his scrotum. It happened that quick and it was horrifying to watch. I looked at the face of the next man in line and he showed no concern whatsoever. I said, “Don’t you see what they are doing? They are cutting off their testicles! Let’s get out of here!” The man didn’t react to my warning in the least. He was under a spell of some kind. All the men in line seemed to be under a spell. The closer to the front of the line the stronger the spell influenced the men.

    people in line smlI made my way to the back of the line towards the exit and told a few men what lay in wait for them, but only two men listened to me. They indicated they wanted to walk out, but I knew they wouldn’t just let us leave. I told one of the men to act like he was fainting and I would carrying him outside to get some fresh air, and then we would make our escape. The man immediately began to act like he was passing out. I told one of the guards the man just needed air. The guard wasn’t very bright and said, “I don’t think air will help.” The other man and I assisted the man outside and just as soon as we cleared the exit door I took off running. I ran as fast as I could for five or six steps before I looked back and realized there was no one pursuing after us. I said, “Oh wow, we’ve escaped!”

    End of Journal Entry

     

    Meaning:

    The dream took place in a motel. The motel in the dream represents a place of sexual activity where seducing spirits are in operation as well as a place of business. The woman in the dream was the motel owner’s wife, but it is a parody about a church where the pastor’s wife operates in the Jezebel spirit.

    The woman in the dream had position, influence, and power and had cleverly taken over the operation of the motel. In her heart and mind it was her baby. It was her business. She had used her bewitching powers to gain control of the money and day to day operation. Her actions had turned the place into a disgusting ruin. Her goal was to turn every male into a eunuch and kill those who opposed her evil reign. All those who submitted to her would become her children, her slaves, and her “Yes” men.  The woman was Jezebel.

    The Hebrew meaning for Jezebel breaks down to something like: Un-husbanded or Un-Exalted, Unmarried, Chaste, Without Cohabitation.

    The Jezebel spirit is sly and creates utter ruin in the body of Christ. Unless the Lord reveals the spirit is in operation the congregation won’t even know what spirit they are up against. They may sense something isn’t right but won’t be able to locate the source because the Jezebel spirit cloaks itself in so many ways. The prophet will know who is manifesting the Jezebel spirit  when the Lord reveals it to him. This is why Jezebel tries to kill the Lord’s prophets.

    “Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and even more, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.” 2 Kings 19:2

    The Spirit reveals that the one who call herself a prophetess is really operating in the Jezebel spirit. “But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.” Rev. 2:20

    The cunning, Jezebel spirit is two faced. On one side is the “companion” side. This is the “friend” side and it is used as a disguise to gain the people’s trust in order to discover their dysfunction. Once a person’s dysfunction is discovered, Jezebel begins to find ways to manipulate them to advance her cause. If a person begins to tell of Jezebel evil deeds others find it hard to believe because they just see the “pal” side. With Ahab her discovery is shown in her inquiry. “But Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, “How is it that your spirit is so sullen that you are not eating food?” 1 Kings 21:5

    On the other side of Jezebel’s face is sinful and murderous side. Jezebel cloaks this side from the people’s view, especially the pastor, never letting him see it. However, anyone who opposes Jezebel will find out real quick how murderous this spirit can be.

    In the dream the woman constantly had to plaster over the walls to hide the hideous ooze of her sin. Jezebel is devious and an expert at covering the trail of sinfulness to prevent being detected. The Jezebel spirit is difficult to detect unless the Lord reveals it’s presence to the prophet. That is why Jezebel tries to kill the prophet to prevent from being exposed.

    plaster smlWhen I saw the plaster being applied to the walls, I thought about what Jesus said to the religious leaders.  “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.” Matthew 23:27

    Jezebel loves to teach and play the prophetess. She is self-called, self-appointed and calls herself a prophetess. She loves to minister in the church but her goal isn’t to help people but to make spiritual eunuchs.

    In the dream the men were waiting in line but didn’t know they were about to be castrated. One by one they were neutered and didn’t see it coming until it was too late. Jezebel had used her power of seduction and witchcraft to blind their eyes to actually what was really going on.

    The Jezebel spirit will lie dormant in a person waiting until they are given a place of power. Jezebel plays the role of prophetess, teacher, friend, but she is two-faced. As soon as someone walks away from her presence Jezebel will bad mouth them. Jezebel’s teachings are a mix of truth and lies which are inspired demonic spirits and has caused many to commit acts of immorality, spiritual adultery and self-worship. In the dream the woman was in full arousal mode in an attempt to seduce me as she moved her hips in a rhythmic, full frontal hug. I knew  she was Jezebel, for the Lord had revealed it and there is a huge price to pay if anyone continues to tolerate the presence of a Jezebel spirit.

    ‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. Rev. 2:20

    Be sure and read the first one in the series on the church titled: Sunday Morning Church Visit – Part One http://seerofgod.com/archives/1655

    Eunuch definition – Wikipedia:

    A eunuch is a person who may have been castrated, typically early enough in his life for this change to have major hormonal consequences. Typically castration was carried out on the soon-to-be-eunuch without their consent in order that he might perform a specific social function; this was common in many societies. Eunuchs probably served as servants or slaves who, because of their function, had been castrated, usually in order to make the reliable servants of a royal court where physical access to the ruler could wield great influence.

    Jezebel

    She listens, consoles, counsels and uses her seductive powers put a spell as many as she can. Remember her goal is to make spiritual eunuchs out of them. The kind of congregates which are simply described as a “Yes” men. A “Yes” man is someone who tolerates Jezebel as it is written in Rev. 2:20?

    Jezebel knows no limits to get what she wants

    1 Kings 21: 8-10

    So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. And she wrote in the letters, saying, “Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, ‘You have blasphemed God and the king.’ Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.” Anyone who opposes Ahab will find that Jezebel will be working behind the scene making up lies and stirring up others to join in her cause. Jezebel is ruthless and has no limit as to what she is willing to do to get what she wants.

    Summary

    Jezebel will always have a group of “Yes” men under her control just like Ahab. Even though the dream took place in a motel, it is a parody of a church where the pastor’s wife is operating in a Jezebel spirit, controlling the church from behind the scenes, especially the pastor. He was Jezebel’s first victim.  Jezebel is drawn to weak, dysfunctional men because they are easily manipulated into doing her bidding.

    Jezebel loves to play the role of a prophetess as she utters her false prophecies, which are vague at best, and impossible to verify their fruition. She wants to instruct others from her platform as she tries to build a following even though her own life is filled with sin and wounds from her past. Jezebel in the church impersonates a spiritual vessel of God and wants to create an environment where people are dependent on them.  You are my children.” Jezebel takes every defection from her camp as a betrayal and makes every attempt to get them back. Jezebel’s clarion call is “Come back, come back to me my children.” Her spiritual tentacles are long and difficult to escape. Jezebel hates the prophet of God and will attempt to kill them. It is a murderous spirit and not to be taken lightly.

    The longer a person submits to a person manifesting a Jezebel spirit, the more likely that person is to become spiritually neutered and of little use to the work of the kingdom of God. Jezebel uses sexual seduction, witchcraft, intimidation, and fear to control people. Jezebel will counsel with a person, consoling them with cunning lips, but just as soon as the person leaves their presence Jezebel will talk disapprovingly of that person.

    The Jezebel spirit enters into a person from open wounds usually caused by traumatic childhood events in which they had no control to stop. The internal wound is an open door to their soul. The wound is seeded by the enemy with a Jezebel spirit. Jezebel mindset says, “I will never again allow myself to be in a situation where I’m not in control!” As the person grows up and ascends to a position of prominence, the Jezebel spirit begins to evolve in their life, changing the dynamics of the person and all those who come in contact with that spirit.

    This is an extremely strong spirit and difficult to discern because it cloaks itself so cunningly. It can manifest in the corporate world and in the corporate church as well. The hardest lesson to learn is even though a person is being influenced by a Jezebel spirit, God still loves them. We are to pray for those mistreat us and ask God to deliver them from the forces of evil. I have seen God deliver a person from a Jezebel spirit and do it in a way which was so beautifully graceful to that person.

    “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.”  LK 6:27-28, 32

    Scriptural Warning:

    Again, I feel compelled to warn you that as a believer you are warned not to commit adultery with her. God knows those that are truly His. If you are seeking Truth then I believe God will reveal the forces of darkness which are hindering you, and deliver you from those powers. However, for those who are not seeking a relationship with Jesus Christ they will find themselves under Jezebel control committing spiritual and perhaps natural adultery with them and God will judge you according to your deeds. Repent while you can!

    ‘Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. ‘And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds. Rev. 2:21-22

    Rise to Power

    It came about, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he married Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went to serve Baal and worshiped him. 1 King 16:31

    Murderous Spirit

    for when Jezebel destroyed the prophets of the LORD, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave, and provided them with bread and water.1Kings 18:3

    “Has it not been told to my master what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of the LORD, that I hid a hundred prophets of the LORD by fifties in a cave, and provided them with bread and water? 1 Kings 18:13

    Her Domination over Men – Prophets

    “Now then send and gather to me all Israel at Mount Carmel, together with 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of the Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.” 1 Kings 18:19

    Jezebel Schemes for Ahab

    But Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, “How is it that your spirit is so sullen that you are not eating food?” So he said to her, “Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite and said to him, ‘Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it pleases you, I will give you a vineyard in its place.’ But he said, ‘I will not give you my vineyard.'” Jezebel his wife said to him, “Do you now reign over Israel? Arise, eat bread, and let your heart be joyful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name and sealed them with his seal, and sent letters to the elders and to the nobles who were living with Naboth in his city. Now she wrote in the letters, saying, “Proclaim a fast and seat Naboth at the head of the people; and seat two worthless men before him, and let them testify against him, saying, ‘You cursed God and the king.’ Then take him out and stone him to death.” So the men of his city, the elders and the nobles who lived in his city, did as Jezebel had sent word to them, just as it was written in the letters which she had sent them. They proclaimed a fast and seated Naboth at the head of the people. Then the two worthless men came in and sat before him; and the worthless men testified against him, even against Naboth, before the people, saying, “Naboth cursed God and the king.” So they took him outside the city and stoned him to death with stones. Then they sent word to Jezebel, saying, “Naboth has been stoned and is dead.” When Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, Jezebel said to Ahab, “Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth, the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead.” When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, Ahab arose to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it. 1 Kings 21:5-16

    “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.”  LK 6:27-28, 32

    ‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. ‘Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. ‘And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.

  • Sunday Morning Church Visit – Part One

    Journal Entry
    Title: Sunday Morning Church Visit – Part One
    Dream
    Date: 4/12/11

    Note: This is a first in a series of dreams I have been given over the course of the past few years. It is my hope that you will read and carefully consider what the message of God is saying to you.

    Modern Church InteriorDream: It was Sunday morning and I decided to go check out a local church to see what they were up to. My wife was surprised that I was going back there. She said she would come later. When I drove up to the facility it had been completely remodeled and was ten times larger than before. I parked in a side parking lot near an entrance so I could get in and get out without being detected. The nearest door led to an outside area which was enclosed by a tall fence. There were some teens in great number doing some kind of orchestrated dance led by the children’s pastor.

    As I walked on a path that led into the main structure I came to a room with some small tables which seated five or six people. A pretty young lady, which was on the church staff, met me there and sat me down with three young men of which were 19-20 years old. The young lady snuggled up to me, putting her head on my shoulder, and said, “I miss you so much, we all miss you.” Then she pressed her cheek against mine. I didn’t respond in kind.

    I noticed the three young men seated at the table all had some kind of dysfunction. I asked one of the more alert ones what was wrong with him and he just grunted something unintelligible. The young lady, who had seated me, hurried off to another room. I got up and followed her to the room. The room appeared to be designed like a lounge. It had room for many tables and had a bar the length of the right side of the room. This was the room where the faithful and long term members were seated. The three young men would go here next to once they had been approved by the young lady and the others in leadership.

    I looked around the room before leaving and saw a child about twelve years old playing in a silly manner. They were teaching her this behavior so they could use her in skits and plays to lighten up the mood as they made fun of other Christians, denominations and religions. I peeked in the doorway a little further and saw a blonde headed woman seated in the middle chair of the dimly lit lounge’s bar. Her back was turned to the other people in the room. Only certain ones, which had her approval, could sit by her and the room was crowded with people waiting to be approved by her so they could sit with her. I quickly moved away from the doorway so as not to be seen.

    I entered another room and saw people all standing around in a circle. One of the leaders placed ten yellow garden hoses on the ground. In the middle of each of the yellow hoses was a Y coupler.  On the left side of the Y coupler was a yellow hose which had already been attached. The left side of the Y coupler was a labeled “Separation” and the right side was labeled “Jesus”.  The object game was for each participant to disconnect the yellow hose from the left side labeled “Separation”, and reconnect it to the right side of the Y coupler labeled “Jesus”. I watched each person participating in the game make the connection with “Jesus” and each time they did the group made a loud cheer. I waited to see what they were going to do with the message of the exercise but when the last person had finished they all just walked away.

    I continued to walk around and found a self-serve pizza kitchen, which was made to make the people feel warm and cozy. It had beautiful tiles and a large serving area. Then the music began in another room as the worship service started. The band entertained people while all the other people remained in their designated areas.

    As I headed back towards the door I thought I had came in another man was walking out as well. It was Kevin James, the actor and comedian. I asked him if he would change my pants. He cracked up. I thought to myself, “I meet Kevin James for the first time and all can do is ask him to do is change my pants”. Then other actors began to come out the same door. Then I realized that I had come out a different exit from where I had parked. I went back in and walked around trying to find the door that I came in. I searched for some time before I finally found the door I was looking for. They had intentionally by design made it difficult, confusing, and misleading to exit their church. I knew I had to go home and warn my wife not to come here. It is an evil place.

    Meaning:

    Meaningless Activities

    In a dream, a parking lot is a place of arrival or exit. In this case I was arriving to see what was going on in this particular church. I parked near the most accessible entrance not for the convenience of entering as much as to make a quick exit.  The teens were doing an orchestrated dance being led by the children’s pastor. It struck me that the teens were being led by the children’s pastor. The teens should be growing up but they were being treated as six year old children. Everything activity was a pre-planed, orchestrated as an activity, with no room for Holy Spirit to lead believers by the Spirit.

    The Room

    Round Table and Chairs in Conference RoomThe first room I entered was the room for new members. They were seated at the table by a designated staff member. She was the “Groomer”. Her job was to monitor their attendance, provide them with orientation in their church rules, learn their dysfunctions, and prepare them to serve the needs of the church and direct them in doing so. This was standard operating procedure for everyone that wanted to become a member. No one who wanted to be a part of the fellowship could bypass their orientation. If a person wanted more responsibility and access to higher up leadership, the young lady first had to approve of them herself and report their progress back to the pastors. Every person’s faithfulness was measured as to how well they served in the church system. She used flirtation and sweet talk to hook these young men into doing what she needed them to do for the church.  No one dared say “No” to her or anyone in leadership. They could make it difficult for you.

    Dysfunctions

    Each young man had a dysfunction, which would be discovered and then passed onto the blonde headed woman.  People who have yielded to the Jezebel spirit will do all they can to discover a person dysfunctions in order to manipulate them to her needs. She will show her sweet, confidential side to gain their trust in her discovery process. She is a master manipulator, especially over men.

    The Young Girl

    The young child was cute and very popular within the fellowship. She was called upon at times to make fun of the perceived less spiritual people in other denominations. It was clever to employ a child in  a humorous way to make themselves feel better about their spirituality.

    The Blonde Woman

    The blonde headed woman represents Jezebel. The name Jezebel means “unhusbanded”. She loves to clone and create spiritual children to follow her in her idolatries. She sat in the dark room, hidden, with her back turned to the people. She doesn’t care about anyone but herself. She chooses to surround herself with dysfunctional people, even more than she is, because they can easily be manipulated to do her bidding. She rules this church from behind the scenes, especially the pastor and other staff members. She has everyone in the church monitoring ever other person in the church without them really knowing her scheme. All her conversations are to glean more information about what the members are saying and doing. With this kind of information she can maintain her hidden power position by detecting any perceived threats. Anyone who disagrees with her will be dealt with swiftly and with severity. That’s the way she keeps the pulse in her kingdom.

    Wherever Jezebel rules in a church she will seek out the weak ones and use their dysfunctions to control them. She disguises her efforts behind an insincere compassion when trying to help them, but she is incapable of helping anyone but herself.  All her attempts to help a person will do more harm than good as she is a destructive counselor to all she ministers too.

    The Yellow Hose

    The game with the Y coupler and the yellow hose came across as shallow and insincere. It showed the ineffectiveness of game play in the churches today.  It was a fun activity but that was all it was. Although the kids made a natural connection they didn’t seem to make a spiritual connection to God at all. The presence of Holy Spirit inspired teaching was missing from the exercise. It was sad to watch the kids walk away without grasping the message of making the connection with Jesus is to build a life long relationship with Him and that requires they seek Him in their dedicated prayer time.

    Self-Serve Pizza Kitchen

    The self-serve pizza bar speaks of several things. The churches today are iconic symbols of self-worship. Most churches fine tune their message so as not to offend anyone. They want the attendees to feel warm and comfortable. For the church to stay open it requires money and people have money.  Almost everyone attending is self-serving in some form or fashion if they would be honest with themselves and God.  The concept of promoting a personal relationship with Jesus Christ isn’t at the heart of most churches today. It’s not mentioned, taught, nor is it encouraged by the majority of religions. The essence of Jesus Christ has been hijacked by man’s religion. With every breath and action, the members are deceptively taught that committing to the church (organization) is the same as committing to Christ. That giving tithe to it is the same as giving to Christ. This is evil, dangerous and propagates spiritual adultery. The leadership perpetuates this message to keep, control and feed off God’s sheep.

    Today, when the word “Church” is spoken people automatically think of a building. Many churches, like a harlot, offer something for everyone. The harlot church says, “Come, you can have whatever you want here. There’s no better place to be.  We have the best there is. It will cost you nothing.”  (Read the blog: http://seerofgod.com/archives/1639 The Enticement)

    In the thing called “Church” a person can have prominence, validation, identity, self-worth, self-confidence, self-righteousness and influence, etc. However, Zion isn’t an organization; it is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Zion is made up of believers who worship the Living God in Spirit and Truth. These are the ones who are the bride of Christ.

    The Band

    Some churches use church worship teams as a tool to attract (entice) people to come and to keep them once they do. The better the band the better most people will like the church services. I have heard many church attendees say, “I only come here for the music.” Building big worship teams has been a trend in the churches around the world for many years now. Just as the palm trees competed with one another in the blog, “The Enticement”, some churches compete with one another with their worship teams. There’s a difference between being entertained and tapping into a pure worshipful praise of our Lord Jesus Christ. I believe in the minstrel gifts and that most worship team members are faithful to their gift and love to worship the Lord.

    Playing or singing can become a form of self-serving if the person is doing it for the wrong reasons. Just because you like to do something isn’t enough of a reason to do it. Each ministry gift has to be continually submitted to the leadership of the Lord. In Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus warned the ministers who had performed miracles, cast out demons and prophesied in His name, that He never knew them. He said to depart from Him and sentenced them to eternal darkness. I believe these ministers were victims of the church system and never developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They knew the actions of a minister, the theology and did great things as they made a name for themselves, but they never had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

    Exits

    exit sign smlIn the dream as I tried to leave the church but discovered they had purposely designed it to be difficult. The exits were hard to find, much like a big, multi-level mall is designed. They get the shoppers in but make it difficult to find the original point of entry. When a person enters a (joined) church they make you feel warm, welcomed and accepted. However, the acceptance will last as just long as you tithe, attend as many of their activities as possible, agree to everything leadership says and believes. There is zero tolerance for critiques of the church. Anyone, who questions the leadership is quickly singled out as a dissenter and labeled as a person to be watched more closely.

    Often people who want to leave are given the suggestion by the pastor that bad things are going to happen to them if they leave the covering of the church.  Phrases like, “The wheels are going to fall off!”, “Don’t leave your assignment!” or “You’ll lose your covering!” are an attempt to frighten people to stay.  It is a form of control and just like the dream showed it’s not easy to get out of the thing called church.  If they can’t control you then they automatically begin to try to destroy and defame the person.

    All the love they showed you was really fake love as it was based on acceptance based on performance to their standards. It’s love with a hook.  They will love you as long as you belong to their church, but once a person exits they become all but unknown to their former church members.  The Amish are known for the use of shunning to punish people who don’t comply with their doctrines. However, most other religions also employ shunning as well.

     Actors (Pretenders)

    As I walked out he was walking out the exit Kevin James, which is a very popular actor and comedian was walking out as well along with many other actors. The biggest role most people will ever star in occurs when they attend a church. Just about everyone puts on their best face as they pretend to be enjoying themselves so others won’t think they’re not living a great victorious Christian life. The church is filled with actors (pretenders) which aren’t truly interested in taking up their cross and following Jesus Christ. They are happy to attend and enjoy the social aspects of the church and all the things it offers but to do they have a pure commitment to Christ? That is the question. Anyone seeking Truth will find it. I heard the Lord say some time ago, “My bride comes not so much from the church (system) as from the world.”

    “For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. I do not sit with deceitful men, Nor will I go with pretenders (actors). I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked.Ps. 26:3-5

    Summary

    The greatest deception ever placed upon mankind is the church system of which man has created. It is a counterfeit and a spiritually dangerous place to be. It has caused millions to commit spiritual adultery by demanding commitment and allegiance to it (the church system) instead pointing them to Jesus Christ. Instead of promoting Jesus Christ the person, it entangles people into legalism, dead works as it manipulates them to do what the leadership wants done.

    Any self-worship (doing things for self) is fleshly and not of God. If it isn’t of God then it is demonically influenced in some way or another. Jezebel used sedcution and deception to ascend to a position of power. She loves to play the role of the prophetess and have a following of loyal subjects willing to support her in her idolatry.

    Believers this is a serious matter to the living God as recorded in the following verses.

    ‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first. ‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. ‘I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality. ‘Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. ‘And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.” Rev 2:19-23

    Someone once quoted, “The institutional church has killed two kinds of people: Those who do not believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ, and those who do.

    You certainly will find this critique of the church system troubling if you are reliant upon it for your livelihood, status, identity, validation or security but the Spirit of the Lord says, “COME”.

    Time is short and Christ is calling His bride unto Him. Will you heed His call are continue on the course you are on? It’s not easy for a person to leave what has been ingrained into their mind for so many years. Let Christ lead you to the Truth. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you and you will find a beautiful walk in the freedom of Christ.

    The five foolish virgins are made up of the church goers who do nothing more than maintain a general form of religion but deny the power. They spend no time building a personal relationship with the Lord and thus no oil or flask to carry the sustaining oil. Don’t continue be foolish, but go to the living God and ask Him if what I have written here is true. Read the scriptures carefully asking God to illuninate the true meaning to your spirit.

    “Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord. “AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you. 2 Cor. 6:17

    If you ask, seek, and knock the door will be opened to you. Seek the truth and He will reveal it to you.

    After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory. And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, ” Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Rev 18:1-5

     

     

     

     

     



  • The Enticement

    Journal Entry:

    Title:  The Enticement
    Dream
    Date: 6/16/12

    fifty dollarsI was walking down a big city street, which had a large building made of stone, with tall columns and steps which spanned the width of the building. A lady dressed in black came down the steps and said to me as I walked past, “How would you like a fifty dollar bill for free?” Then she stuck a folded “fifty” in my back right pocket. I immediately pulled it out and held it up in front of me to look at it. She said, “It’s free and won’t cost you a thing.” I wasn’t fooled because I knew her game. I had seen it before.

    Then she showed me four beautiful young women sitting in a row just to her side. There was a blonde, brunette, redhead and one with black hair. She said, “You can have anyone of them you want and it won’t cost you a thing.” Then she handed me a brochure with their pictures and bio information of each one of them. I noticed in the bio under the blonde’s picture had her nationality as Arabian. She said, “Have you ever had an Arabian woman?” She was beautiful and I felt a fleshly thought come into my mind, “Wow, I could have an Arabian woman.” Then I came to my senses, “A blonde Arabian?” I thought to myself. How more false can it get than that?

    I still held the fifty dollar bill and she said it was mine and it wouldn’t cost me a thing. There is an old street saying that says. “Never play another man’s game.” I looked down the street in the direction I was headed and knew if I kept the fifty and tried to slip away with her money that she had people in waiting take back the money and rough me up as much as necessary.

    Then I was shown a vision in the dream of four trees growing up together. As they grew they were competing for space to see who could become the biggest of the group. It was painful to watch as each tree pushed on the other trees like goats trying to see which one can be on the top of the mound. The struggle went on for some time before one tree finally prevailed over the other three.

    I handed the money back to her and said, “No thanks.” I could tell the woman’s feelings were hurt and then I saw the tallest tree of the bunch began to cry. Water flowed like a spring from the top of it, down its leaves onto the smaller trees. I asked the Lord, “What’s wrong with a tree crying?” He said, “Watch.”  As I watched, the tears from the tallest tree turned an ugly brown as it flowed down over the other three trees. I began to weep in my spirit as I walked away with such a saddened heart.

    End of Entry –

    Meaning: I awoke immediately after the dream ended and lay quietly in bed seeking understanding from the Lord as to the meaning of the dream. Then he showed me a vision of a largest church in a city, which had a promotion in the park starting on the same day of this dream.

    The event was advertised as one of the largest of its kind and offered activities for people of all ages. The ad offered families the opportunity to experience some things they may never have the opportunity to enjoy otherwise and it was FREE.

    IPalm Trees and Blue Skyt is the classic “Love with a hook.” Their actions appear to be someone doing something for you at no cost, were actually them doing something for their self. They wanted to use this event as an enticement in order to grow their church attendance. The event was created and promoted to rise above the other churches in the city and motivated by self-serving interest. Although they would defend their actions as doing it for the people, God, and serving their church, it was spirit driven, but it is not of God, because of the motive behind it. It was driven by self.

    Churches, just like businesses have used all manner of enticements to get new blood in the doors to grow their numbers. Businesses and churches plan a “special” event to create a buzz in order to get people excited so they will tell others about what they experienced. Some of the special events include: celebrity speakers, famous authors, drawing for big prizes like trips or big screen TVs, signage on billboards, postcards, flyers, online newsletter, creative website, establish contacts with businesses or colleges and do lunch together with the employees or students. Create special events such a night projection on large buildings, referral incentive program, contest, streaming services online, clever quotes on sign out front, have the greatest worship team in town, and Super Bowl parties

    Some of the more traditional promotions are bus ministry, Sunday school, vacation Bible school, Christian school, and church day care.

    Have you ever attending a “How to grow the church” planning meetings? Have you ever been involved in setting up events like the ones listed above? What was your real motive to do so? Was it successful? Did you see an increase in numbers? Does watching other churches to put on events motivate jealously in your heart? Are you in direct competition with other churches in your city?

    In the dream I was offered the beautiful blonde who was advertised as an Arabian woman, but she was not Arabian whatsoever. The blonde woman represented spiritual Egypt and she is driven by one thing and that is the desire of the flesh and all its lust. In life, a person has to choose between spiritual Egypt and all that it offers for the flesh and the lust thereof or seek out the things of God. When Jesus told His disciples to come and follow Him it was to lead them out of spiritual Egypt just as Moses led out the Hebrew nation from natural Egypt. Spiritual Egypt is in the world and found its way into the church many centuries ago.

    “Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Gal. 5:20-21

    In the vision the largest tree began to cry when I turned down the woman’s offerings. As the tears flowed from out of the top of the tallest tree, the water turned an ugly brown color, which represents a polluting, corrupting, and carnally minded spirit. The same corrupted spirit that is at the head flowed down onto the lesser trees, destroying their natural beauty as well.

    Spiritual Babylon is described best as all that is carnally minded. It is mankind exalting himself above the things of God, and doing what he thinks is right. Spiritual Egypt and Babylon began to influence early Christians causing division and dissension among the community of believers, eventually it evolved over the many centuries to this thing called church today. The church organization today is a counterfeit of what Christ implemented by Holy Spirit.

    sea foam smlWe are led to believe that being in right standing with a church organization is the same as being in right standing with Christ. Man has merged the two together and compelled others to believe that it is Christ’s will for them to join in with them in their spiritual adultery. People are led to believe that serving in the church organization is the same as serving Christ. When men ascended to power over other believers, by creating the clergy system they took for themselves titles like bishop, established a hierarchy of administration, and promoted their interest over God’s. Today, you will find organizational charts in churches just like it common in corporations. It is the Babylonian spirit and there are many forms of that spirit.

    Ignatius the third pastor at Antioch created this doctrine cementing the power structure of the Clergy paradigm that is in the Church today.

    “Follow your bishop, every one of you, as obediently as Jesus Christ followed the Father. Obey your Clergy too, as you would the Apostles; give your deacons the same reverence that you would to a command from God.  Make sure no step affecting the Church is ever taken by anyone without the bishop’s sanction. The sole Eucharist you should consider valid is one that is celebrated by the bishop himself, or by some person authorized by him. Where the bishop is to be seen, there let all his people be; just as wherever Jesus Christ is present, we have the Catholic Church. Nor is it permissible to conduct baptism, or the Eucharist without the bishop. On the other hand, whoever does have this sanction can be sure of God’s approval too. This is the way to make certain of soundness, and validity of anything you do.”

    In the dream the woman offered free money, but nothing is for free. There’s always a hook. On the surface everything seemed innocent enough, but I had experienced the deception first hand for myself.

    A few years ago when I was going about my day, suddenly I knew I had an audience with the Father. I quickly grabbed my pen and tablet and sat down in His presence. I began with one question, which led to asking five. As I inquired of the Father about a particular church in the area which had tried every scheme known to man to grow church membership without any success.
    Five Questions I asked the Lord

    Q1. Why doesn’t this church grow?
    A1. Because they want it to grow.

    Q2. What’s wrong with that?
    A2. It’s their vision not mine.

    Q3. The early church grew and increased?
    A3. As I added members.

    Q4. Why then do some churches grow and other don’t?
    A4. It’s not about growth. It’s about the Kingdom. Each church has a different assignment and the motives behind the pulpit must be 100% for My things and not things, not numbers, or anything that man can say, “This is a successful ministry because of a building or pews filled”. What are they doing with the people in the pews, warehousing them? Corralling them as their sheep to control while they feed themselves and starve My sheep? It is not My way and a day of judgment awaits for those evil, sluggard, selfish shepherds.

    Q5. How does leadership change their mind set?
    A5. Give up control to Me. Find their true place in My heart and allow My heart to reign in their lives.

    In most cases what I have spoken about applies to the church system. In some case the hearts of the people are true for God and its about what’s in the heart. However, just because we can do something doesn’t mean we should do it. We should always honestly ask our self why I want to do a certain thing. We should lay our ideas on the altar before God and allow Him to lead us in the things pertaining to ministry. We should always allow God to show us the vision of what He wants the ministry to look like. We must always lay down the idols in our heart before pursuing answers from God. If not, you will simply hear what you want to hear.

    We are living in the time where Jesus Christ is calling out His bride from spiritual Babylon and to leave the riches of Egypt and choose to follow Him. The plumbline is laid. Come out of her or suffer her plagues. Rev. 18:4

    May You Be blessed in the Lord’s Favor,

    Scripture References:

    Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. Be on guard against him yourself, for he vigorously opposed our teaching. 2 Tim 4:14-15

    “I wrote something to the church; but Diotrephes, who loves to be first among them, does not accept what we say. For this reason, if I come, I will call attention to his deeds which he does, unjustly accusing us with wicked words; and not satisfied with this, he himself does not receive the brethren, either, and he forbids those who desire to do so and puts them out of the church.” 3 JN 1:9-10

    “For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. But these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah. These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever. It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage. But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they were saying to you, “In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.” These are the ones who cause divisions, worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit.” Jude 1:4, 10-19

    “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality. And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly. Rev. 17:1-5



  • Christ’s Church Up On Blocks

    Journal Entry: 5/17/11

    Vision – Christ Church

    christ churchDuring morning quiet time I saw a vision of a small car running along real good until it high centered upon a block of wood. The back wheels were spinning away but the car wasn’t going anywhere. The occupants didn’t seem to notice that no forward progress was being made whatsoever. Then the Lord impressed upon me that the block of wood represents man’s religious doctrines and how it high centered the church which Christ built.

    End of vision

    Early on even in the days of the apostles many of Christ’s doctrines were being shed in favor of pagan teachings and traditions.

    ‘For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 2 Tim. 4:3-4

    Jesus told the scribes and Pharisees, “”But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Matt 23:13

    In the book of Jude records the effect of man’s doctrine upon the body of Christ which denied Jesus as Master and Lord and His grace was replaced with performance and works.

    “For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.” Jude 1:4

    The ones who over the many centuries, beginning at the end of the first century, replaced Christ’s teachings with their own and began to take control of the people at the same time hiding behind the appearance of Godliness just like the scribes and Pharisees did. Jude described them as;

    “hidden reefs in your love feast when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves, clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, double dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever. Jude 12-13

    These men are in impersonators since they assume the character or appearance of a godly man but are especially fraudulently in their motives. As Jude 12 says, “caring for themselves, clouds without water.” If you ever been in a drought and experienced a cloud develop and begin to thunder, produce lightning and some wind but no rain then you know what the Lord was describing in the book of Jude. Many ministers talk the talk but in their hearts they don’t walk the walk.

    Today, many in the church system are teach to watch for the “apostasy” to come firs,t as if it is a future event, and then the anti-christ soon follows. When in fact if you carefully study the history of the early church it is clear that the great falling away began to occur at the end of the first century when the apostles passed away.

    “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the *apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 2 Th 2:3
    Revelation chapter 2, introduces the Nicolations and warns of their false teachings. The name Nicolations means, “conquer of the people.” These are the people that took over Christ’s Church by appointing themselves as leader over the people. Diotrephes was such a man. He loved to be first among the congregation and took no instructions from the apostles and you could add from God either. Diotrephes accused the apostles with wicked words, and controlled who attended his church meetings. He cast out people who didn’t go along with his doctrine and accused others of doing what he was actually doing.
    “I wrote something to the church; but Diotrephes, who loves to be first among them, does not accept what we say. For this reason, if I come, I will call attention to his deeds which he does, unjustly accusing us with wicked words; and not satisfied with this, he himself does not receive the brethren, either, and he forbids those who desire to do so and puts them out of the church.” 3 JN 1:9-10
    There are many Diotrephes leading the congregations today all over the world. They have have high centered Christ’s Church upon a wooden block and are in control but Christ’s mission is being held back from accomplishing what He wants to do.
    “For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Cor. 11:13-15
    Paul warned to be on guard of Alexander the coppersmith.
    “Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. Be on guard against him yourself, for he vigorously opposed our teaching.” 2 Ti. 4:14-14
    “I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!” Gal. 1:6-8
    And the Bible warns us about the mystery of the Babylonia spirit, which is the driving influence behind the church system. Babylon is carnal mindness, fleshy and exalts “self” over the preeminence of God. Leaving spiritual Babylon is difficult because it provides identity, security, position and sufficiency. It becomes a stronghold in the mind of people raised up in it. We become “institutionalized as the character Brooks was in the movie Shawshank Redemption.
    “And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Rev. 17: 5-6
    “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Rev 18:4-5
    So if you are one of those who is looking for the “falling way” to occur all you have to do is review what the apostles were saying would happen and what is written in Revelation to understand that it has already occurred and you haven’t even recognized it for what it truly is…the Harlot of Babylon…the Great Whore. All though you may be an sincere follower and there are millions like yourself in the world, error is error and the church system is the greatest deception ever imposed on mankind and it can’t be fixed, t must be abandoned. Truly, you must turn to Jesus Christ and enter into a true relationship with Him.
    A few verses in which Jesus warned of the consequences of serving self…
    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matt. 7:21-23

  • For Such A Time As This

    Journal Entry –
    Dream: For Such a Time as This
    Date: 4/5/2012

    Jae and I were standing in an open field facing a man playing a guitar and singing, “for such a time as this, for such a time as this.” He kept repeating the same phrase over and over again. “For such a time as this, for such a time as this.” There were only a few people in the same field with us and they didn’t seem to be listening to him.  I watched them slowly walk away.

    – End of Dream

    graffitiAfterwards, I awoke up and kept hearing the words “for such a time as this” over and over in my head. I didn’t know what it meant, but kept seeking the Lord about it. Sometime later, I typed the words into Google and the search engine responded with “Wayne Watson – FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS – LYRICS.

    As I read the lyrics, I immediately wanted to hear Wayne Watson’s song. I clicked on YouTube and found several videos of the song. As I listened intently to Wayne perform the song, I wept and rejoiced all at the same time, caught up in the moment with Holy Spirit. The words rang so true in my heart. The time is short and the window is closing on this age. Those who don’t come in soon will find themselves hopelessly lost forever. Who’s going to show them Christ’s nature, His character and give them His love?

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXcJUIAJNW0[/youtube]

    I believe the Lord is calling out to this generation of Christians to return to sober mindedness, and think about why and how you are living at this place in time. We must be clear-headed, and press into God to hear His voice and do whatever He asks of us. I believe most people don’t want to hear what God has to say to them simply because they are afraid He will ask them to do something they don’t want to do. Imagine how ineffective an army would be if they refused to listen to the instructions from the highest generals because they might ask them to do something they didn’t want to do. I know that sounds ludicrous but are we not treating the Father that way now? By not seeking Him we are refusing His Lordship over our life. By not spending time with Him we are walking in a proud and haughty manner. We are to walk humbly “with” our God and that means submission to His will for our lives daily.

    Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matt 5:14-16

    Saints of God, we must reevaluate our priorities and consider what it means if we call ourselves “Christian”. I believe the verses below provide a look into what a Christian life should look like.

    “Then when he arrived and witnessed the grace of God, he rejoiced and began to encourage them all with resolute heart to remain true to the Lord; for he was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And considerable numbers were brought to the Lord. V26 and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. And for an entire year they met with the church and taught considerable numbers; and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.” Acts 11:23-24, 26

    The call has been made saints time after time and to every generation. Jesus is beginning to assemble His bride unto Himself. The invitation has been given to whosoever will humble themselves before the Lord, leave their comfort zone, and follow after Him. Then and only then will you find the true gospel living inside of your heart, shinning for the whole world to see.

    The call is to return to the simplicity of your first love, and regain the passion you once had for lost souls. It’s time to deny oneself and follow after Jesus to wherever He leads and do what He shows you to do with all your heart.

    Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. John 16:24

    Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  “Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” Mat. 9:37-38

    Now, all I have is now
    To be faithful
    To be holy
    And to shine

    Lighting up the darkness
    Right now, I really have no choice
    But to voice the truth to the nations
    A generation looking for God

    [Chorus]
    For such a time as this
    I was placed upon the earth
    To hear the voice of God
    And do His will
    Whatever it is
    For such a time as this
    For now and all the days He gives
    I am here, I am here
    And I am His
    For such a time as this

    You, Do you ever wonder why
    Seems like the grass is always greener
    Under everybody else’s sky
    But right here, right here for this time and place
    You can live a mirror of His mercy
    A forgiven image of grace

    [Chorus]

    Can’t change what’s happened till now
    But we can change what will be
    By living in holiness
    That the world will see Jesus

  • Let My Prayer Come Before You

    Journal Entry:
    3/18/2012
    Let My Prayer Come Before You

    let my prayerJust after midnight, I walked into my office, which is located upstairs, to pray before going to bed. I specifically had on my heart to pray for the Christians in Iran, who are under a constant threat of death from the Iranian government. In 1994,Haik Hovsepian, the leader of the Protestant church in Iran was murdered for his defense of Christian man who converted from Islam. Hundreds of Christians scattered across thirty-five cites were arrested in 2010 without any formal charges brought against them. They spent many months in prison under solitary confinement, interrogations and psychological abuse. The Islamic Republic continues to intensify its crackdown on Iranian Christians today. The most recently published case is Yusef Nadarkhani an evangelical pastor and the father of two, has been sentenced to death for converting from Islam. The Iranian Supreme Court has continued to uphold their decision have him hanged.

    I sat down on the futon and began praying and hardly got the words out of my mouth before I was interrupted by a whooshing and whizzing sound, which came from across the room. I immediately formed an image of a tightly wrapped coil of a strong fiber strap or something being unwound at a high speed, as it ascending upward and outward into the Spiritual realm.

    I believe it was an angel of the Lord which was waiting to act upon my fervent prayer for our brothers and sisters in Iran. I also believe that the Lord allowed me to have the experience so I could encourage you to pray for what’s on your heart. When, we have a matter on our heart that is the time to pray, not when it is convenient, because the fervency will have lifted or you will get busy and forget the matter.

    When, as believers, we gain some spiritual insight we become more and more effective as warriors in the spiritual realm. When we pray we may not experience any supernatural sign but we should know that our prayers are effective and not bouncing off the ceiling. I love it when I have faith to pray about a matter and then after praying know in my Spirit that the prayer was effective and there will be a good report coming about due to God acting upon the prayer request.

    Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?” Heb. 1:14

    The Bible teaches that there’s no distance in the Spirit with the story of the centurion’s journey to find Jesus and seek a healing for his servant he left ill.

    “And when Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, imploring Him, and saying, ” Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, fearfully tormented.” Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” But the centurion said, ” Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. “For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.”Matt. 8:5-10

    Some years ago, I had a loyal employee which reported who received a phone call from his teenage son that lightning had struck their home and it was on fire. I told Him to go and that I would pray for the fire to go out. It was just as the centurion had sought out Jesus on his servant’s behalf. I began to ask the Lord to spare his home and that the fire would go out because the man was a faithful servant to me. I knew I had placed my petition before God and it had been heard.

    Later, that same evening, when I called the man, he said that his son ran back in the house and got a Super Soaker and began to point it up at the eve of the house and spray water on the fire. As the son did this the fire went out immediately. The rural fire department arrived sometime later to fight the fire, but found no fire to fight. The boy told the firemen what he did to put out the fire and the firemen informed him that there was no way a squirt gun could put out a house fire like this one. The fireman didn’t know why the fire went out but they knew it was some kind of miracle.

    How many ministering spirits (angels) are posted nearby waiting for the prayer of a saint, so they may launch out into the spiritual realm by the command of God to bring it to pass? Peter was freed from prison by an angel as a direct result of fervent prayers being offered up on his behalf by the saints gathered at Mary’s home.

    “So Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God. On the very night when Herod was about to bring him forward, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and guards in front of the door were watching over the prison. And behold, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared and a light shone in the cell; and he struck Peter’s side and woke him up, saying, “Get up quickly.” And his chains fell off his hands. And the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.” And he went out and continued to follow, and he did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. When they had passed the first and second guard, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened for them by itself; and they went out and went along one street, and immediately the angel departed from him. When Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I know for sure that the Lord has sent forth His angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting.” And when he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John who was also called Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying.” Acts 12:5-12

    Saints of God let’s be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer. The times are difficult and only getting worse, so let us remember one another in prayer as we petition God to act in their favor. We limit what God can do when we fail to pray. When someone comes to your mind don’t just think about them, pray for them. Perhaps, that is why they came to your mind! Pray out for the plan of God to become manifested in their life. Pray for God’s perfect will to be done and they man know God in a beautiful relationship. However, we pray for them, God wants us to pray…so let’s PRAY for one another!

    Bro. Bill

     

    A few scriptural references:

    Let my prayer come before You; Incline Your ear to my cry! Ps. 88:2

    Cornelius said, “Four days ago to this hour, I was praying in my house during the ninth hour; and behold, a man stood before me in shining garments, and he said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your alms have been remembered before God. Acts 10”30-31

    Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16

    “FOR THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE TOWARD THE RIGHTEOUS, AND HIS EARS ATTEND TO THEIR PRAYER, BUT THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THOSE WHO DO EVIL.” 1 Pet 3:12

    The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer. 1 Peter 4:7

    (Angels) -Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? Heb. 1:14

    When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Rev. 5:8

    And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand. Rev. 8:4

    You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. James 4:3
