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!

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



  • Trustworthy, Faithful, Diligence and Allegiance

    Prophecy
    Date: 3/11/12

    trustworthyI Am the great and wonderful God. I have created the worlds for My pleasure and formed man from the dirt of the earth. In every way, I planned and created it all for My pleasure. I put Trustworthy as the head of My table along with Faithful, and seated next to Faithful is Diligence and Allegiance. The four of them rule in My Kingdom as supreme counselors and guides, and no one passes through which hasn’t been approved by them. These are the ways of the Lord. These four follow Me wherever I go. Come to My table. Come one, come all and let us reason together. Let the faithful say, “In God I trust.” Let the ones who have an allegiance with Me stand in this hour alongside of Trustworthy & Diligence. If you do I will envelop you in My arms, My praise and favor, for the Lord is the giver of all life and life is eternal.

     



  • The Lighthouse

    Journal Entry

    Date: 2/12/12

    A lighthouse on top of a cliff at nightWhile in prayer and meditation time, I asked the Father, “How can the indwelling of Christ be in someone and at the same time they are deceived, in error in their doctrines, and priorities?”

    Then the Father showed me a vision of a “lighthouse” in the dark of night.

    He said, “The pursuit of Christ requires a firm effort to continually root out the truth from the lies. When a person allows another person to lead them then they become their leader. If the leader is blind to the truth, then they become blind to the truth as well. If they follow a righteous man they will be taught to seek Me out and truth will come to them.

    The difference is like the “Lighthouse”. Do you look for it yourself or are you looking to another to find it for you? Most people are too lazy to search the darkness for the appearing light themselves. Even if they do for a season they soon give up and return to their usual habits of letting someone else do it for them.

    Seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened, ask and you shall receive. For all My truth is available to those who are sincerely seeking truth. Indeed, the days have become darker and the spin doctors are ever present in your news reports, and none are to be trusted for each one has his own agenda and axe to grind. In the end you will feel all but hopeless. However, a timely word from the Lord will bring great joy and comfort.  Seek Me out and you will find Me. The invitation is open to all who are hungry and thirsty.  The multitudes gathered for a meal but My disciples gathered to Me for understanding. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.

    Many seek Me in the storm when desperation drives them away from themselves long enough to find comfort in My arms. Just as soon as the storm becomes silent they leave the safety of My will and return to their folly.

    The days ahead are filled with trials of all kind. They hearty will find their courage challenged and their strength to faultier. The compression of the culmination of the age will be intense as I bring the final judgment upon evil. Only those hidden in My arms will survive the time known as Jacob’s Trouble.”

    Now come – come all, for I have a place of rest for you. I do not turn the hungry away.

    Your Father

    Commentary

    When sailing the waters a night, a person must find where the lighthouse is located to avoid the dangers of the rocks and reefs. You scan the horizon, straining your eyes to see its light, which will guide you safely from the dangers hidden by the darkness.  Most people are too lazy to search out the lighthouse for themselves. They would rather have someone tell them where the lighthouse is than put in the time and effort to find it for themselves.”

    The end result of a life lived like this is they sail aimlessly along in the darkness, dependent upon others for their information, and live selfishly unconcerned about the dangers of not knowing for themselves and the others they could have helped along the way.

    Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12

    Lighthouse BeaconOne of the most wonderful experiences in Jesus Christ is that we can have a personal relationship with Him. We can ask Him questions and listen to His wisdom as He teaches truth to us. I consistently have asked God questions about things of which I wanted to have more understanding. Often the questions are triggered when reading the Bible.  The Holy Spirit will illuminate a particular verse revealing God’s heart to us so we can see what God is truly saying in the text.  Sometimes Holy Spirit will reveal a mystery of God in dreams or vision, or perhaps catch one up in the Spirit and take them to a place to show them a mystery.

    “I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a man was caught up to the third heaven.” 2 Cor 12:2

    He is the Lighthouse. He is the one we should seek out to direct our lives. Without Christ in our lives we are a drift in the dark sea of life, aimlessly headed for the rocky shore.

    For You light my lamp; The LORD my God illumines my darkness. Ps. 18:28

    The lazy person relies on someone else to teach them about God. Many sit in church all their life and listen to a preacher after preacher speak about things in the Bible but never really seek out God on their own in a personal relationship.

    For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil. Heb. 5:12-14

    “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. JN 14:26

    The Father did not give us Holy Spirit so we could remain a drift in darkness in our life. Instead, we have freely been given access to Holy Spirit to teach us, lead, and counsel, exhort, encourage, correct, and empower us into mature believer in Christ.

     



  • Things to Come

    Journal Entry
    Date: 1/15/12
    Dream: Things to Come

    rev 9-20It was dark as night and I was standing in my front yard close to the street that passed in front of my house. I looked to my left and saw a faint white light in the road which moved slowly in my direction. An stoic looking gentleman sitting in a lawn chair behind me and slightly to my right. There was an authoritative spirit about him. He didn’t have to say anything for me to know that he was in charge. I turned to the gentleman and said, “There’s a faint small blinking light coming up the road which looks a lot like a firefly’s light.” As the light got closer, to my surprise, I could see it was on the back of a very strange looking creature. The creature was black and approximately four inches long and two inches wide. It had six legs that went up at an angle about four inches then bent downward to the ground six inches. It looked like something from a cartoon. As the creature passed by in front of me the light changed from blinking to a solid white light. The light had increased in size by several times and appeared its use was to illuminate prey when the creature was on the hunt. The creature passed my yard to my right and went down the dark road. It went a short way down the then It stopped next to a tree.

    Then I heard a commotion in the tree where the creature had stopped. Over and over again I could hear something thrashing in the tree. I stared at the tree for sometime before I saw a large black bird fluttering around in the branches, apparently trying to catch something. Then the bird launched itself powerfully deep into the branches and I heard a scream. A man dressed in all black clothes came running out from under the tree, up the road past where I was located and continued running down the road. As he passed us he continued to scream in great pain. I could see that the black bird had its claws and beak dug into the man’s lower back, feasting on his flesh.

    I nor was the stoic man afraid of these creatures, for we knew we were protected from them by God. Even though It was horrific to witness, we knew the man had refused to repent to God for his sins, thus he was suffering a judgment from God.

    Suddenly, I awoke startled from what I had just witnessed.

    Meaning:

    I have been asking God to show me things to come. One of the things was the coming earthquake to the central United States which is an article here titled, The Vision of the Coming Judgment. When I went into prayer that same morning I was seeking God as to what the dream meant. I felt led to read Revelation 9. The verses in Revelation 9 tell of a time on earth when God will command the angel of the bottomless pit Abaddon (Heb: “destruction”/Gk: “the Destroyer”) to open the abyss and release locust of such a great number that they darken the sky. The locust are not allowed to kill nor attack those whom have the seal of God on their forehead , but only attack those who refused to repent of their sins before God.  The torment period will last for five months. This all occurs when the angel sounds the 5th trumpet. This is the first “woe.”

    Judgments will continue at an even more frequent and alarming pace in 2012. It is God’s will that none should perish but Revelation 9:20-21 show that even when severe judgments have occurred those who were not killed by the plagues did not repent of the works of their hands. They continued to worship demons and followed after their idols, nor did they repent of their murders, sorceries, immorality or thefts.

    Time is running out for the people of this planet to repent. Sinners don’t know this is soon coming upon this world. Who’s going to warn them?

    Scripture Reference:

    Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him. He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke came locusts upon the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them. Rev. 9:1-6

    They have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men for five months. They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon. Rev. 9:10-11

    The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts. Rev. 9:20-21

    Jesus said, “I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” Lk 13:3



  • The Vision of the Coming Judgment for the United States

    Journal Entry

    Date: 1/4/12

    I was in my morning quiet time praying for the future of the United States to be spared God’s severest judgments. That God would convict our nation as a whole of our sin and reveal His righteousness to us once again in order that we would repent and turn from our selfish wicked ways. That God would send us a revival in our hearts to free us from our bondages. Then I saw a vision before me that alarmed me greatly.

    Vision: The Map

    map usa  earthquakeI saw in front of me a map of the United States of America. The map was laid out flat with the west coast to my left and the east coast to my right. Then an open book was placed over the map page side downward. The spine of the book was directly over the geographic center of the United States. Half of the pages were on the western side and half of the pages were on the eastern side of the map.

    Then the book was lifted upward by its spine causing the book to fold up halfway, much like the shape of a tent. As the book folded upwards the surface area of the map heaved upwards following the tent like shape of the book. This created intense pressure on the center of the United States.  A tightly compressed ridge formed mid-continent from the Canadian border south to the gulf coast. The pressure was enough to break the nation in two and it was just a matter of time before it gave way under the pressure and the United States was ripped right down the middle.

    Then the scene was placed at my eye level and from this angle I could see that the pressure was even greater than I could see from the aerial view. It was a matter of time before the break occurred causing a devastating earthquake like the world has never seen before.

    End of vision

    (Updated: 2/27/12)This vision is telling of an earthquake in future judgment upon the United States. In the vision I had the sense that it was coming in 2012 and that the earthquake would cause part of the eastern Unitied States to break off and be seperated from the mainland. Perhaps even disappear into the ocean. An earthquake of this magnitude would cause a great loss of life (a powerful tsunami likely) as well as the finiancial loss would be staggering. The United States would no longer function as it does today. I believe Christians must enter into great prayer for our nation to reduce the effects of pending judgments upon this nation. Perhaps if Christians will humble themselves and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways God will not destroy this nation. The future is malleable in this matter to some degree if we will turn back to God now.

    Scripture Reference:

    Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. “If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chr 7:12-14

     



  • Timeline for Jesus’ Real Birthday

    There are two calendars to be aware of when studying the scriptures; the Jewish or sacred (religious) calendar and the civil calendar.

    Note: If you study Bible prophecy always use the months and days from the Jewish calendar when studying events which occurred after the implementation of the Feast of the Lord. These Feast dates are recorded in Leviticus 23. (That’s my instruction given to me from Holy Spirit when I first began to study Bible prophecy).

    Jewish torah scroll in coverChristmas (December 25) is the time we celebrate the time of Christ birth. However, I believe the keys scriptures and the prophetic symbolism of the Feast of the Lord contradict man’s tradition of December 25 as Christ birthday. I put together a timeline from some key verses, which point to Jesus’ birthday being in the fall most like at the Feast of Trumpets (Tishri 1).

    Month 1: Nisan (Mar-Apr) – Zacharias – performing priestly services. LK 1:8-25 John is conceived during the first month which is Nisan.

    Month 6; Elul (Aug-Sep) Gabriel visits with Mary. LK 1-26. Mary informed that Elizabeth is 6 month pregnant LK 1:36 Mary visit with Elizabeth 3 months before returning home in Month 9 which would be the month Kislev, Lk1:56. Hanukkah occurs in Kislev. Mary returned home and most likely conceived Jesus from Holy Spirit during Hanukkah.

    Month 9: Kislev (Nov-Dec) Elizabeth gives birth to John. Lk.1:57. This would place John’s birth in the month Hanukkah occurs, not Jesus’ birth. Hanukkah is the Feast of “Dedication” or Feast of Lights. John was dedicated to serve God and prepare the way for the coming of the Lord.

    Now let’s work with the clues in the text to locate the approximate time of Christ birth.

    Months Before the Birth of Jesus – Caesar’s census decree went out to all the Roman Empire. LK 2:1. It took months for the news of the census decree to travel across the land and then additional time for the people to travel to their birth place where they were counted in the census and paid a tax. I can only assume that the taking of the census went on for more than a year or perhaps even two. However, we do have some clues to the condition of Mary and the season of the year in which they returned to Bethlehem. Mary was about to give birth.

    With the decree Mary & Joseph returned to Bethlehem, Jesus is born shortly after Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem. LK 2:6-7

    The shepherds are in the fields when the angel announces Christ birth. LK 2:8. The shepherds wouldn’t be abiding in the fields in the winter months when the rain and snow fall in some areas. This places the angelic announcement much sooner than winter or the traditional date of December 25.

    Tishri 1- Is the Feast of Trumpets established by God. Lev. 23:24. This date is the beginning of the Jewish New Year. Trumpets are blown and the time of the early rains and plowing. It is taught in Jewish lore that Adam was formed on Tishri 1. “So also it is written, “The first MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVING SOUL.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 1 Cr 15:45

    Count backwards 9 months from Tishri to find the month of conception and you get Kislev (Nov-Dec) and Hanukkah, the Feast of Lights. Modern astromony software shows celestial studies very well may indicate that a uniques sign appeared in the heavens above Bethlehem during Tishri in 3BC. It is an amazing look at the celestial events which were occuring in the heavens leading up to Christ birth.

    So I believe it’s accurate to say that John the Baptist was born during the month of Kislev and most likely during Hanukkah (Festival of Lights). Jesus was most likely conceived by Holy Spirit during Hanukkah (Jesus, the light of the world JN 9:5). John’s birth proceeded and prepared the way for Christ conception. Nine months later Jesus was most likely born on Tishri 1 during the Feast of Trumpets.

    Follow the calendar timeline which I have put together and you will see the scriptures point to Jesus’ birthday being in the fall of the year and not in winter. Some people say, “What does it matter anyway when we celebrate Jesus’ birthday as long as we celebrate it?” Okay, then when your next birthday arrives how about we skip it for three or four months and celebrate it then.

  • Return To Me

    flagIt is essential to come to Me and abide in My shadow, under the covering of My wings, for it is the time of which the prophets spoke where the recompense of the Lord will be poured out upon the wicked. Many who sit in the high places will be brought low and the ones who have suffered in the low places will be exalted in the days ahead.

    I am giving forth promotion to the faithful who have endured the trials and personal test of which came upon them at the will of the Father. The ends of things are a matter of discussion with the world leaders and they struggle to wedge their way to lead the world.

    America has seen its glorious days fade and I will bring this nation to its knees. Wickedness is the rule of the day and discourse is the way of the land. Where is your genuineness? Where is the spirit of consecration to the things of God? America you have made Me a byline in the history of this nation. I have been pushed out of your schools, universities and your churches.

    I wait for your return but it has not come. You seek pleasures to heap them upon yourself giving little thought to the less fortunate. Trouble will come and in great trials you will see what truly is important in life.

    Home of the free…land of the brave?

    No more!



  • The Freedom You Have Known

    hands raised cryout smallThe greatest time of My spirit is yet to appear for there are many days of darkness ahead and difficult times which will come upon the entire world. The freedom you have known will be extinguished as tyranny takes over. Rebellion is the spirit that is in the land and chaos will be the order of the day.  My light will have seemed to have vanished from the earth. My judgments will flag every nation as I remove the ones in power and replace them with the followers of evil.

    Where can you hide? Where can you seek refuge? The times are changing and the days are filled with evil. Man cannot overcome My judgment as they are set and the day of great wrath approaches this world.

    Is there a reason to hope? Is there any reason at all to lift your eyes to Me and give your little light to Me? Indeed, for those who have little light I will make your light shine all the brighter in the darkness of this hour.  Come to Me! Ground yourself in perfect obedience to Me and I will always be there with you even in the hour of despair.

    Freedom will depart from the land of the free as it departs from the nations of the world, but be of great cheer for I will protect those under My pinions and they will find rest in My sanctuary, the sanctuary of the Lord. Come now for evil is approaching swiftly – enter in to safety.

    Your Father



  • The Abandoned Harvest

    Journal Entry
    July 11, 2011
    Dream –Scene One – The Unction 

    I was standing with a very small group of people when to our left and angel walked past saying, “A person only has a very small unction from Holy Spirit to evangelize and if they don’t heed the Spirit the desire will go away and not come back again.” 

    Scene Two – The Field of Corn

    Ear of Corn Ripening in Field I was walking down a country road, lined with trees on both sides. There was an opening to my left which revealed a large field planted in corn. The corn plants were dried out from the summer heat but I could see ears of corn on every stalk. In the dream I was giving understanding that this crop had been abandoned by the farmers that planted it. I thought the corn must not be any good for someone to just walk away from the harvest. Puzzled, I decided to go into the field and take a look at the quality of the crop for myself.  

    I pulled off an ear of corn from a stalk and pulled back the husk to see the condition of the corn. I expected the kernels to be sparse and dried up from the summer’s heat as the reason the farmers abandoned the field. As I pulled back the husk, exposing the kernels of corn, I saw that not only was the corn fresh and juicy but the kernels had a strange fatness to them. I pulled off some kernels of corn from the cob and placed them into my hand. To my surprise more corn appeared on the cob where I just removed the corn. As I held the corn kernels in my hand they changed colors illuminating with a spectrum of beautiful colors. It was amazing! 

    I didn’t understand how the corn field could look so dry yet contain such fresh and wonderful corn on the inside of the husk. As I walked out to the edge of the field next to the country road, I heard the sound of a babbling brook beneath my feet. I looked down and saw clear spring water running on the ground directly from the direction of the field. Apparently there was a source of water just underneath the surface which kept the corn field robust and ready for harvest.

    Meaning – 

    Scene One 

    The angel said to the small group of people in the dream, “A person only has a very small unction from Holy Spirit to evangelize and if they don’t heed the Spirit the desire will go away and not come back again.”  

    Have you lost your desire for souls? Remember when you first got saved and how you felt and wanted to share with someone what Christ has done for you? Where is your excitement about sharing your faith with others? How many people do you know personally that are known for diligently seeking out the lost? How many are there in your local congregation who consistently witness to those who are lost or backslidden? I will tell you that it is a very small number compared to the ones who portray themselves as Christians. The angel warned the believers in Sardis to wake up, and strengthen the things that remain which are about to die. Scene one of this dream is a warning to the congregations to address their failure of falling asleep, becoming weak in sensing the unction of Holy Spirit for the lost. If you let it die it will be dead and will not come back to you.  

    “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. ‘Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. Rev 3:1-2 

    Meaning Scene Two – 

    Why did the field go without being harvested? Where were the farmers that planted it? 

    At one time the farmers worked diligently as farmers. They plowed and prepared the fields and when it came time they planted the seeds so they could bring forth a nice harvest. That is the purpose of farming to bring forth the harvest. What happened to the field ready to be harvested? 

    Years before, the farmers began getting together in their homes to having weekly meetings so they could support one another and discuss all the wonders of being a farmer. They had a special bond and excitement and wanted others to experience what they had discovered about farming.  The word spread about how great the meetings were and the attendance grew too large to meet in a home. So they decided to build a building devoted solely as a place for the local farmers to gather. 

    By the time they had built and moved into their new building a few of the farmers had risen to prominence and taken charge of the meetings, drawing most of the attention to their selves. The other farmers were encouraged to unquestionably submit to their farming wisdom and counsel. They loved to talk and teach on farming techniques, programs, good farming practices as they pressed the other farmers to conform to their teachings.  

    The other farmers like being taught as well as being part of such a unique organization. Eventually, they added farming school for children and a nursery for the little farmers. Then came seminaries for farmers, Farmers’ TV Network with weekly DVDs offers with titles like “10 Steps to Positive & Purposeful Farming”, “Captivating Farming”, “Farming With a Sense of Humus”, “How to Become Completely Committed to Farming” and “Joy in Farming” were just a few of the most popular teachings.  

    The people learned how to dress, talk and act like farmers. Then more meetings were added to the week which kept the people very busy in the farmer’s organization. Over time attending, participating and belonging to the farmers’ group became more important than working and harvesting the fields even though the fields were abundantly ripe and ready for harvest. Each person’s attendance to the weekly meetings was closely monitored and should someone start missing meetings the organization would have another farmer contact them to find out why they were not at the meetings.  After all if you love farming you need to be a member of one of these local farming organizations.  

    The end results of the farmers’ organization was that the farmers knew the practices and principals of farming, but no longer understood the principal of rolling up their sleeves and getting dirty working in the fields, laboring in the fields day and night, so they could bring in the harvest. The speakers at the farming organizations meetings never stressed the importance of bringing in the crops and eventually the farmers forgot what farming was all about which is the HARVEST! 

    How ridiculous would it be for farmers to devote their lives to farming but never go work in the fields to gather in the harvest? If farmers acted like this would you not think the farmers were phonies, perhaps question their sanity? But today few Christians show any concern for lost souls and even fewer will share the gospel of Christ with a lost soul although their weekly attendance may be stellar. Is that not as ridiculous as the farmers abandoning the harvest?  

    Remember the angels said in the dream, “A person only has a very small unction from Holy Spirit to evangelize and if they don’t heed the Spirit the desire will go away and not come back again.”  

    Have you lost your desire for souls? God knows. Remember when you first got saved and how you felt and wanted to share with someone what Christ has done for you?  

    Guard you desire for the lost by praying for the lost souls. Pray for those you encounter daily who have been blinded by sin. Pray for the Lord to send labors into the field and pray that he would use you to bring in the harvest. Don’t let the desire for the lost to pass from you if you still have it at all. If it dies in you it will not return.  

    The final harvest awaits and the Lord is secretly preparing those who will listen to Holy Spirit and seek the Father’s heart for the lost. Pray that you may have the same compassion for the lost as Jesus displayed in His earthly ministry. He had COMPASSION for the PEOPLE.  

    “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Rev. 3:15-16 

    The desire for lost souls has to be continually guarded like a small flame from the elements around you. Ask God for mercy to rekindle your desire for the lost before it completely goes out. Ultimately with God SALVATION is of the highest importance above everything else. He did send His Son so that man could be saved.  

    “The time of the great harvest is now! The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.” Mat. 9:38 

    Bro. Bill 

    Scripture Reference: 

    Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. 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. 9:35-38 

    He who gathers in summer is a son who acts wisely, But he who sleeps in harvest is a son who acts shamefully. Proverbs 10:5 

    The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who is wise wins souls. Proverb 11:30 

    Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, ” Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe.” Rev. 14:14-15

     

     

     



  • Man’s Ways

    “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts. Is. 55:7-8

    people massMan counts the days ahead as if he owned them, but I say you aren’t even promised tomorrow. Man spends a great amount of time on the days ahead, planning for the future, but fails to grasp the significance of today. I give grace to you for today. That is all you need. Tomorrow’s evil will take care of itself.

    Man rebels against Me declaring his freedom to live without Me. While at the same time he enters into more and more bondage. In truth there is no freedom without My forgiveness. The debt of man’s sin cannot be dealt with in other way except through the work of the cross. My Son paid the price. The ultimate sacrifice so that you may be free from the bondage of sin.

    Man’s voice is raised and many are declaring their rights to live as they want to live as they abandon the Word of God denying the Creator’s work. I Am the Light of the world. When you choose to live your life without Me, you will walk in darkness, not some darkness, but absolute darkness.

    As the end of the age approaches it should be more and more evident as to what is light and what is darkness. Anchor in My light now before it is too late for a great evil will soon be released upon the entire Earth. You who have truly built your life on the Rock will weather out the storm. Those whom have built upon the sand will be swept away.

    Do not pay Me lip service as your heart is far from seeking Me. You only fool yourself. The days are short and My people are unprepared for what awaits just over the horizon. The things which you are so focused on today will not matter when the storm comes. The student who will not prepare for the test will fail the test. Those who have weathered the enemy’s assault upon you and have seen every door closed to you must see that I allow for the trials to come not to discourage you but to direct you to Me.

    The path, My path is very narrow and few be there that find it. Put your entire trust in Me and I will guide you through the trials, not eliminate them. Ask yourself, “When do you need Me the most”? Is it when you are on the pinnacle or in the valley? When are you the most thirsty; at the well or in the desert?

    Come!

    Scripture References:

    Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,”Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!” He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger And terrify them in His fury… Ps. 2:1-4

    Behold, the LORD’S hand is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken falsehood, Your tongue mutters wickedness. No one sues righteously and no one pleads honestly. They trust in confusion and speak lies; They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity. Is, 59:1-4

    “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Mat. 7:13-14

    “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. “And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. “Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. “The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” Mat. 7:24-27

    And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Gal. 4:6-9

    Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:8

    Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” James 4:13-15



  • Signs in the Heavens Beyond Measure

    August 27, 2003

    Open Vision

    On the evening of August 27, 2003 planet Mars was at its closest approach to the Earth in recorded history and won’t be that close again until year 2287. So if you missed it, I am truly sorry. At the time of this event, I lived in a large metropolis where the sky glow from the city lights made it difficult to view the celestial bodies.

    I had stepped out onto the back patio which faced due east to do some star gazing and observe Mars in the night sky. As I peered up at the sky the sky glow from the city lights prevented me from seeing all but the brightest of objects. Suddenly, the sky glow faded away into a beautiful dark night sky with all the stars and planets showing. I looked in wonder at their beauty; a sight I hadn’t witnessed since a young boy while on camping trips at the river sleeping out under the heavens.

    Then I heard the voice of God say, “Soon I will show signs and wonders in the heavens beyond measure.” Then the sky began to return back to its normal sky glow effect blocking my view of the heavens, the vision was over.
    End of Vision –

    The Significance of Mars’ Close Approach

    The Hebrew name of Mars is Adon and represents Michael the warrior angel, who wars against Satan the dragon and serpent. This red planet also represents the shedding of blood as in the blood of atonement that was shed by Messiah. Knowing the Jewish astronomy meaning for Mars made it a significant event and the timing of the event was very interesting.

    The next day August 28th at sunset was the beginning of Elul the same day Mars reached opposition to the earth. Opposition is where two planets appear opposite each other from the point of view of the earth. August 28th (Elul 1) was the beginning of the 40 days of repentance and preparation for the High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Elul means “search” as search your heart.

    Remember Mars was at its closest distance in recorded history of man and the significance of that event added to the meaning of Mars with the date it happened is a clear sign and wonder from heaven showing the world that Christ shed His blood as the Messiah for the entire world and it’s time to search out one’s heart and turn back to God.

    Knowing God’s soon isn’t the same as my soon, I recorded the vision in my journal and have been waiting for God, The Almighty, to demonstrate His wonders in the heavens. As the days before His return get closer I feel compelled to tell of this vision with the hope that when you begin to see amazing things in the heavens you will know that God is demonstrating His majesty and message to the entire earth. The book of Revelation mentions several catastrophic events which will come from the heaven prior to Christ return. Before I discuss signs you must first understand the validity of the message in the stars which God show Adam and the generation to follow.

    What Are Signs and Wonders?

    thumbnailCAQHDM8BIn 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”.

    The Hebrew word for signs is ‘owth which means a sign or signal. The celestial signal is an indicator of something that is not yet discernible. The Hebrew word for “signs” points to something or someone to come.” The Bible has many references to the times of the feast of the Lord were set by the new moon. The wise watch the heavens and saw that the alignments announced the coming of the Messiah and His birth and not only His birth but the location of His birth, Bethlehem.

    The Hebrew word for seasons is “mow-ed” which means appointed place, appointed time, meeting. From the beginning God established the lights in the heavens as signs for important specific appointments between God and man as well as broadcast the gospel to all on earth. I want to show you something the Holy Spirit taught me some years ago about the immense respect we should have for the heavens and what they are saying to the entire world.

    “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? 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!” However, they did not all heed the good news; for Isaiah says, “LORD, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. Romans 10:14-17

    It seems every preacher quotes the verses above but fail to continue to read the complete context in which Paul was conveying by the inspiration of Holy Spirit. Now read the verses below where Paul asked us a question.

    “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.” Romans 10:18 The gospel was first preached in the heavens and how fitting for God to end the age with the heavens declaring His wonderful plan of salvation for all mankind.

    New Testament Paul references the immense prophetic voice presented in Psalms 19:1-4. Jesus spoke of the signs of His return.

    “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Ps. 19:1-4

    Psalms 19, verse 1-4, shows that God proclaims the work of His hands and that the stars speak forth God’s proclamation displaying knowledge to all the earth in a universal language. Adam was taught by God the meaning in the stars and it was passed down from generation to generation. Unfortunately, most of the knowledge has been lost over time but some still remains to bring enlightenment to our souls. The gospel was first preached from the heavens and in the end of days the gospel will be preached lastly from the heavens.

    The Hebrew word Mazzoroth occurs once in Job 38:32 meaning constellation or zodiac. The word Zodiac means the degrees or steps, which mark the stages of the sun’s

    The Mazzaroth

    path through the heavens, corresponding with the twelve months. The word zodiac has a bad connotation to most believers since as everything Satan perverts the things of God for himself to hide the wonders of God’s creation to mankind. Remember that Satan didn’t create anything nor do creative powers reside within the fallen angel. God created the constellation and made them for a specific purpose which is recorded in Genesis 1:14-19

    He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. Psalms 147:4
    Canst thou bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? 32 Canst thou lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season? Or canst thou guide the Bear with her sons? 33 Knowest thou the ordinances of the heavens? Canst thou establish the dominion thereof in the earth? Job 38:31-33

    If you want to learn more about the origin of the constellation and how the gospel is preached in the heavens then I recommend you read the following books:
    The Glory of the Stars by E. Raymond Capt
    The Witness of the Stars by E. W. Bullinger
    Signs in the Heavens by Chuck Missler
    The Mazzaroth in Mathew by Chuck Missler
    Appendix 12 From The Companion Bible

    “But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Matt 24:29

    In the book of Joel “I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth, Blood, fire and columns of smoke.” The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. Joel 2:30-31

    The Bible is clear that there will be great signs and wonders in the heavens at the time of Christ return. However, I believe we will soon see things appear in the heavens which will marvel and perhaps startle the population of the world. I came away from the vision and hearing God with the impression that God will witness to the entire world of His glory and presence using signs and wonders beyond measure.

    Currently comet Elenin (astrological name C/2010 X1), which was discovered by amateur Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin in Lyubertsy, Russia on December 10, 2010, will reach the orbit pattern of Earth on August 1, 2011 and be viewable by the naked eye.

    Elenin has garnered great interest for such a small object being that it is so far away from the Earth at the time of this writing, July 3, 2011. However, there is mounting evidence that when the Earth, Sun and comet Elenin are aligned major earthquakes have occurred on the Earth. Comet Elenin is peculiar in that its orbital alignment is coplanar to our solar system, which is very uncommon among comets with only a couple a century occurring. Just think of any three distinct points in space as always being because they lie in the same geometric plane.

    Large Earthquakes Which Occurred When Elenin Aligned with the Sun & Earth
    Date Country Magnitude Alignment
    February 27, 2010 Chile 8.8 Sun, Earth, Elenin
    September 4, 2010 Christchurch, New Zealand 6.3 Sun, Earth, Elenin
    March 11, 2011 Oshika Peninsula, Japan 9.0 Sun, Earth, Elenin

    Mesur Omerbashich has published a study based on georesonator concept titled “Astronomical alignments as the cause of ~M6+ seismicity”. The data presented in the study provide evidence indicating that all strong (~M6+) earthquakes of 2010 occurred during the Earth’s long alignment (t>3 day) astronomical alignments within our solar system. Then Omerbashich shows the astronomical alignments holds true for the all very strong (~M8+) earthquakes of 21st century.

    Comet Elenin – May 2011

    Omerbashich used Comet Elenin (C/2010 X1) as an example as it has been has been aligned with our sun and Earth during very strong seismicity since 2007. He states “Elenin will continue intensifying the Earth’s very strong seismicity until August-October, 2011. Approximate forecast of earthquakes based on my discoveries is feasible. This demonstration proves my hyperresonator concept, arrived at earlier as a mathematical-physical solution to the most general extension of the georesonator concept possible.”

    To read the entire study (9 pages) go to http://lanl.arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1104/1104.2036.pdf  or
    Google search “Astronomical alignments as the cause of ~M6+ seismicity”.

    Comet Elenin will be at its closet point to our sun on September 11, 2011. Another unique element that the comet has is that is has a 11, 000 year orbit around our sun. Geological studies indicate that that were significant changes to the earth, 11,000 years ago, when comet Elenin last passed by the Earth in its orbit of the sun. Going forward in 2011 Elenin and other alignments longer than 3 days will increase well into October, 2011 and beyond with Elenin effect until subsiding in 2016 according to Mesur’s study.

    The Unique Number Eleven

    The biblical meaning of the number 11 deals with the things of imperfection, disorganization of systems, and the disorder or chaos of things. Are we living in the eleventh hour of the age? Is that not what we are witnessing happening in the earth today? Turn on the news and you will see story after story of things out of balance and systems in total chaos and disorder in the geopolitical, geophysical, geoeconomic as well as global weather systems. Events like the Arab spring (revolts in the mid-east countries), powerful wind and rain storms, massive earthquakes, enormous wildfires, extensive floods and long standing droughts all occurring at the same time in countries around the globe. We are witnessing the birth pangs of things to come.

    Signs in the Heavens

    “And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; and he said with a loud voice, “Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.” Rev. 14:6-7

    The Bible has many references to the times of the feast of the Lord as mentioned in Leviticus 23. The wise men followed the bright star night after night as it broadcast to the world that the Messiah was about to be born in Bethlehem.

    A short time before the destruction of Herod’s temple in 70 A.D there were several celestial warning signs which appeared over Jerusalem. However, the signs went mostly ignored by the Jewish people due to listening to false prophets who told them God was going to deliver them from the Roman siege. Two of the signs were a star which appeared that resembled a sword as well as a comet which stood over the city the whole year.

    Before the Jewish rebellion began people had come into Jerusalem in a great crowd for the Feast of Unleavened Bread. On the eight day of the feast and at the ninth hour of the night, a great light shone round the altar and the holy house that it appeared to bright day time and lasted for half an hour.

    On the 21st day of the same month many witnessed an incredible phenomenon before the sunset chariots and troops of soldiers in their armor were seen running about among the clouds surrounding the cities. There were other signs but I am focusing on the ones in the heavens.

    Comets are signal markers which are sent our way by God to point of impending events to soon come. Comets reside in the Kuiper belt which is beyond our planetary system. Some refer to it as the Comet Belt. A good example of a signal marker in action is comet Halley which appeared in 1910 four years before the beginning of WWI and again seventy-six years later in 1986, four years before the beginning of hostilities in the Gulf War with Iraq invading Kuwait.

    In 1994 Comet Shoemaker-Levy impacted Jupiter 21 times as it broke up on the 9th of Av. The 9th of Av is the same date of the destruction of the two Jewish temples, the sin of the twelve scouts sent by Moses who spoke disparagingly about promise land. Planet Jupiter (Tzedek) in biblical astronomy is identified as the king planet. The significance of this event may point to the establishment of Christ earthly judgments which must occur before the return of Christ; seven seals, seven bowls and seven trumpets as well as implying 21 years to the millennium being established upon the Earth.

    Hale-Bopp comet appeared in 1997. The comet has a 4465 year cyclical orbit which places its last appearance in the days of Noah. Comet Hale-Bopp entered through the Pleiades (seven stars or seven sisters) which is also referred to as Noah’s constellation. It is very likely that Noah observed comet Hale-Bopp 120 years before the flood. Did its appearance in 1997 mark the beginning of the days of Noah as Jesus mentioned in Matthew 24?

    “The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. The name of the star is called Wormwood (bitter); and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way. Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in midheaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!” Rev. 8:10-13

    Conclusion

    God is not limited in what or how He chooses to display His wonders. Jesus spoke of the signs of His coming in Matthew 24 and I believe without a doubt we are now in those days. If you are pressing into Christ in a one on one relationship then you will still find these days to be challenging but magnificent at the same time. We’re in the time of the preparation of the bride of Christ. It is necessary for all the believers to be purged, purified and refined before meeting the Lord at His return. Many are called and few are chosen. Jesus isn’t coming back for a harlot but a bride without spot, blemish or wrinkle. A bride who made herself ready. A bride who forsook all the idols, harlotry and abstains from even the appearance of evil.

    The message of Noah was to come into the ark before the flood began and so it is now for our generation. It continues to ignore the signs of the times and the calling of the Lord to repent and come into the ark of a relationship with Christ. There is a time coming when the door of the ark of our generation will be closed and those who refused to heed the warning will not be spared. They will perish!

    In Matthew 25 there are ten virgins waiting for the announcement that the bridegroom is coming. Five were describes as foolish and five were wise. The difference between the two is the wise virgins had their flasks of oil with them which allowed their light to endure the lengthy delay until the coming of the bridegroom. The flask full of oil represents the soul, which has been purely sanctified by soaking hours each day in the presence of the Lord and walking in total obedience out of love to the Lord. The wise virgins were in an intimate relationship with the Lord. Matthew 25:1-13

    In Matthew 7 Jesus spoke of two foundations to build on which is sand and the other is rock. Building upon the Rock requires obedience to the things of God and it is driven not out of guilt or obligation but out of love for Jesus Christ. Any other foundation will fall when the storm comes. The foolish virgins didn’t have flask of oil with them and they were unprepared for the delay. They had been taught that Jesus would come before any signs of trouble so they didn’t prepare for the delay or the tribulation.  Matthew 7:24-27

    Watch the heavens for Lord will be putting on a show for the people of the Earth in the last days and know that the Jesus will return just like He left. Acts 1:9-11

    I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. Rev. 6:12-14

     



  • PAIN

    Journal Entry – 5/13/2011
    Dream & Vision
    Title: PAIN

    PAIN

    I saw a man walk in front of me from my right to my left. He was wearing all black clothes and walked in an angry depressed manner. I heard the Lord speak to the man, “You are bleeding in back. Your life is in danger”. The man kept on walking past me and I heard the Lord repeat, “I said you’re bleeding in back. Your life is in danger”!  I looked at the back of the man’s shirt and could see that it was soaked red with blood. He must of had a thousand thin cuts from top to bottom. Everywhere the man went he left a scent trail of blood behind him and he wasn’t even aware of it. The man had heard the Lord’s words but didn’t believe he was bleeding in back. He thought the Lord was talking about someone else.

    I saw following the man was a suicide demon. The demon had been tracking and attacking the man for years and was about to launch and all out attack this time. The man was going to die. I watched the suicide demon attack the man. He resisted the strong urge to end his pain by taking his own life. As the man resisted the demon would back away just for a moment, then attack again and again, feeding on the man’s pain. The man’s pain had built up over a life time and had got to the point that dying might seem like the only way to escape the torment.

    He cried out to God to protect him from the awful torment but the battle raged on for days. I heard the man say to God that he trusted his life to God and even though he was in torment the Lord would surely rescue him.

    On the third day of the attack the man bowed before the Lord and accepted his death. “Lord if I must die, I die to you and not this demon. I accept my death. If you slay me I will hope in You regardless, for I shall find new life in you. I trust my life to You”. The man sat still for some time weeping before the Lord.

    Shortly afterwards the suicide demon came back and attacked him again, but this time the man stood up under an anointing from God and commanded the demon to depart from him and to go back to hell where he had come from. The suicide demon left immediately and for the first time all the man’s pain was gone. A life time of pain was supernaturally gone. Not just last week’s pain, last year’s pain, but an entire life time of pain, gone in an instant.

    Then I saw the man enter what appeared to be an old portico like structure, which you would see in the days of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The man’s face expressed joy and wonderment as he walked down the steps leading to a lower level.  A man wearing a hooded tunic, carrying a candelabra, stepped out in front and led the man further down the steps. The man in the tunic raised the candelabra up high in order to illuminate the path for the man so he wouldn’t misstep down the steps.  At the end of the was a beautiful pool. The man in the tunic walked over to a pool of water and motioned for the man to get in pool and wash. The man stripped his bloody clothes off and slowly walked down the steps into the pool of water.  Watching this reminded me of the blind that Jesus told to go wash in the pool of Siloam and the blind man came back seeing.

    The man soaked his bloody back in the soothing water as it slowly washed away the blood as he waded deeper, submerging himself like in a baptism. Sometime later the man exited the pool. The man wearing the tunic dressed the freshly washed man in a cream white robe and led him back up the steps. At the top of the steps the man in the tunic vanished leaving the man to walk on his way.  The man smiled, raised his arms and praised God, thanking Him for a new lease on life for now his pain was gone. The pain of yesterday, last week, last month, last year and all his life, supernaturally lifted from his soul. Then the dream ended.

    Meaning

    The dictionary describes pain as physical suffering or distress, as due to injury, illness or mental, emotional suffering or torment. The word pain’s origin dates back to the time period of 1250–1300 A.D. Peine is and Middle English word for punishment or torture. The word for pain in Latin is poena as the Greek word poine means penalty.

    Swimming Pool with WaterfallThe man in the dream had suffered many life events which had inflicted great pain deep into his soul. The man hid it as best he could but others could see it if they looked closer. The results of long standing, deep rooted pain, is spiritual bleeding. The man’s back was bleeding which suggest “past” pain in life that he still carried around with him. He could not see the spiritual results of his pain but Satan’s kingdom, in particular a suicide spirit, had been on the scent trail for years.

    Sharks can smell a very small amount of blood in the water at a 1/3 mile away. Once a shark detects the scent of blood in the water it begins to track the source.  As the shark gets close to the blood source they get excited and begin plan their attack. In the same sense a suicide demon will track down the scent from a blooded wounded soul produced by a person with a great amount of unresolved pain to attack and destroy them in a moment of weakness and pain. The man in the dream was angry, despondent and alone.

    In this dream the man was warned by the Lord that his life was in danger and even with that he barely escaped the powerful attack of this wicked spirit. I cannot over state the danger of unresolved pain issues in a person life. When teens who survived a suicide attempt are asked why they wanted to end their life the usual response is to end the “pain” of living. A suicide demon can linger at a specific geographical location just waiting to pick up on someone’s (bloody) pain trail as most demons will linger. They have to be run off.

    A little over a year ago, my wife and I were walking side by side through the main road that went through this business when a semi-freight truck drove slowly past us just a few feet from where we walked. As I looked at the rear wheels as they rolled past. I heard a demonic voice say, “Throw yourself under the wheels”. As I pondered about what I had just heard my wife said, “You know what I just heard”? I said, “What”? She said, “Throw yourself under the wheels”. We had both heard the same evil suicide demon say the same thing at exactly same time.  Also read…Agents of Change True Spiritual Warfare

    I now knew for sure there was a suicide demon hanging out on that property and it had to go. Later, I walked back to the spot where we had the encounter with the suicide spirit, prayed and commanded it to leave. Prior to that day there was a history of people who had worked at that facility which had committed suicide. A were in the distress of pain in their lives when they killed themselves.

    Eckhart Tolle wrote in his book “A New Earth, “Accumulated pain is a negative energy field that occupies your body and mind. If you look on it as an invisible entity in its own right, you are getting quite close to the truth. It’s the emotional pain body. It has two modes of being: dormant and active. The pain body wants to survive, just like every other entity in existence, and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it. It can then rise up, take you over, “become you,” and live through you. It needs to get its “food” through you. It will feed on any experience that resonates with its own kind of energy, anything that creates further pain in whatever form: anger, destructiveness, hatred, grief, emotional drama, violence, and even illness.

    So the pain body, when it has taken you over, will create a situation in your life that reflects back its own energy frequency for it to feed on. Pain can only feed on pain. Pain cannot feed on joy. It finds it quite indigestible. Once the pain body has taken you over, you want more pain. You become a victim or a perpetrator. You want to inflict pain, or you want to suffer pain, or both. There isn’t really much difference between the two. You are not conscious of this, of course, and will vehemently claim that you do not want pain. But look closely and you will that your thinking and behavior are designed to keep the pain going, for yourself and others.”

    There is no escaping pain in this broken world which we were born into but we do have to recognize pain for what it is and what it isn’t. I’ve lost friends and acquaintances to pain that overcame their lives to the point they chose not to continue living. Being unconscious of pain in our lives and others and just ignoring it is a reciep for tragedy.

    Have you found yourself forgiving and forgiving someone over and over again yet you still have anger towards them? Forgiving someone is by faith and as Christians we must do so. However, the pain and hurt of any situation will try to stay alive in our thoughts and memories. Pain wants to relive the situation in your thoughts as it rolls around in your mind over and over again feeding and feeding getting stronger and stronger.

    Is pain an endless cycle in your life or someone close to you? Being aware of the fact that pain is there and dominating many of the decisions you make every day is the first step in becoming pain free. God works with each individual differently as the man in the dream where God miraculously delivered him from pain. I believe the first step to becoming pain free is the desire to be pain free. I have never seen God turn away a sincere cry for help from a desperate heart. God will make a way for you…start today on your journey to freedom.

    Scripture References:

    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, Eph. 6:12-18

    “Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. [“But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.”] Mk. 11:25-26

    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

    Scientific Studies –

    “Suicide does not just occur. Experience has shown that it is more often the end result of a process that has developed over a period of time…” N.L. Farberow

    Suicide is the outcome of neurobiological and psychological breakdown. Becoming suicidal is a process that begins in severe stress and pain generated by a serious life crisis.

    Stress and pain increase as the crisis, or the perception of it, worsens. As this happens, control and self-esteem deteriorate. Depression may be a cause or a side effect of the process.

    Suicidality occurs when the stress induces psychological pain so unbearable that death is seen as the only relief. Prior to this point the individual is at risk of becoming suicidal. Beyond it the individual is at risk of completing suicide. Becoming suicidal is a crisis that causes traumatic stress.

    Ingrained beliefs and values may cause an individual to be stigmatized by their own suicidality. This leads to shame and guilt. These cause alienation from self and withdrawal from others, which are also drivers.

    Suicidality entails changes in brain chemistry and physiology. Suicidal individuals manifest various chemical imbalances. Most notable is depleted serotonin, a neurotransmitter that inhibits self-harm. This is a neurological threshold and those near or beyond it must be treated with medications.

    There is no choice. Suicidal individuals are beset by suffering that is distracting and disabling. Suicidality is a state of total pain which limits options to enduring or ending utter agony.



  • The Fisherman and the Hunter

    Dream – The Fisherman and the Hunter

    Date: 4/2/2011

    I was looking at a fisherman, who wore only a white loin cloth, spear fishing with a pointed stick in a very small pool of water. The pool of water was about five feet wide and came up to the fisherman’s knees. Only five or six fish remained in the pool as he jabbed away trying his best to catch one. Finally he speared one. The fisherman lifted it out of the water only to have it slip off the spear and fall back into the water. He speared the fish again, lifted it out of the water as if it was more valuable than gold. The fisherman was apparently very hungry. Then I heard a voice say “Feed my shark, feed him!”

    faminesMy view zoomed out to a much wider view of the small pool. The pool was surrounded by dry parched land as far as the eye could see. Large deep cracks had formed in the ground from the lack of rain. I saw a fierce looking shark like in the movie “JAWS”. The shark had its mouth wide open sitting on the bank just above the pool of water. A few feet away next to the shark were a small wooden canoe. On the bow of the canoe sat a skull. I heard the voice again “Feed my shark, feed him!” I looked at the skull and noticed inside the skull was a brown colored blob. The brown blog projected the voice ordering the fisherman to feed his catch to the shark. The hungry fisherman complied and fed his bounty to the shark. The he continued to jab his spear at the few remaining fish in order to feed the shark. “Feed my shark, feed him”!

    A hunter walked up behind me carrying only a bow and just like the fisherman wore only a white loin cloth. He raised his bow and leveled out his aim. I looked to see what he was aiming at but could not see any game whatsoever. Then the voice from the skull said “Feed my shark your deer!” The voice spoke once again “Feed my shark your deer!” I watched to see if the man was going to comply if he had shot a deer and it appeared he would.

    Meaning

    The dream represents famine which is coming upon the land due to a great water shortage. Dry cracked land will replace where vast waters once were. Farmland crops will fail due to the lack of rain.  Long duration droughts will lead to major rivers and lakes drying up around the world.

    The skull represents the warning of death, a dangerous situation, even starvation.

    The brown blob was the spiritual entity with the voice of famine in the earth. When a famine is in full swing brown is the predominant color of the landscape.

    The wooden canoe, suggest a simple, basic lifestyle as does the wearing of loin cloths. A wooden canoe also may suggest the lack of power and there is nothing which man can do to prevent the future events from occurring. The fisherman and hunter were in survival mode and everything they needed to stay alive was being consumed by the famine.

    The shark suggests ferociousness of famine upon the land as well as hidden danger catching many by surprise. The hunter looked for wild game but could not find any for the judgment of famine had consumed what little food there was in the land before he ever raised his bow.

    Don’t Be Caught By Surprise

    climate watch noaaCurrently the central, southern and southwest regions of the Unites States is experiencing dry to exceptional drought conditions at the same time the Mississippi River is flooding at record levels. Both of these major events will have some effect on crop production for 2011 in the United States.

    Drought conditions are being reported in many countries around the globe due to the hotter than normal weather and the extreme lack of precipitation. Some of the more note worthy droughts are being reported in United States, China, Britain, Somalia, France, Germany, Kenya, Russia, Wales and Cuba, which will have a huge impact on world wheat supplies. The record floods in Australia in 2010 greatly impacted the grain harvest as well.

    All this will lead to higher grain prices on countries who import grain as well as those who produce it. Governments around the world will certainly feel the political and economic pressure from their citizens as prices are greatly increased due to the severe drought conditions occurring around the world. Higher prices regulate demand but when production all but ceases it leads to famine.

    The world is seeing the signs of birth pangs which have begun to come upon the earth. It will be interesting to see how 2011 plays out so keep your eyes on the Lord and do not allow yourself to be caught unaware. Most will write off what they are see occuring in the earth as the result of global warming. I believe root cause is the sin of mankind and the rejection of the things of God. Read Isaiah 24 below in the scripture reference which is the blueprint of judgment for the days we’ve entered. (Note: Isaiah 24:13-16 are the true believers in Christ which are still here in all the tribulation events giving God the praise.)

    Currently, I have no personal instructions as to how and when a person should prepare food wise for these troubling times. The Father will surely make that more clearer in the days and years ahead.

    Scripture reference:

    Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants. And the people will be like the priest, the servant like his master, the maid like her mistress, the buyer like the seller, the lender like the borrower, the creditor like the debtor. The earth will be completely laid waste and completely despoiled, for the LORD has spoken this word. The earth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the exalted of the people of the earth fade away. The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left. The new wine mourns, The vine decays, All the merry-hearted sigh. The gaiety of tambourines ceases, The noise of revelers stops, The gaiety of the harp ceases. They do not drink wine with song; Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it. The city of chaos is broken down; Every house is shut up so that none may enter. There is an outcry in the streets concerning the wine; All joy turns to gloom. The gaiety of the earth is banished. Desolation is left in the city And the gate is battered to ruins.   Isaiah 24:1-12

    For thus it will be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, As the shaking of an olive tree, As the gleanings when the grape harvest is over.  They raise their voices, they shout for joy; They cry out from the west concerning the majesty of the LORD. Therefore glorify the LORD in the east, The name of the LORD, the God of Israel, In the coastlands of the sea. From the ends of the earth we hear songs, “Glory to the Righteous One… Isaiah 24: 13-16

    Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  Just as it is written, “FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.” But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Rom. 8:35-39

    When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.” When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” 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. 6:5-8

     



  • America – Your Covering Is Gone

    Journal Entry: Dream
    Date 4/19/2011

    I was at an outside speaking engagement seated in the front row in a aisle chair just to the right of the platform. Behind the podium President Obama was addressing a large audience with his ideology about debt, health care, and America’s future role in the world and so forth.

    political speekDirectly above the president was the remains of an old weathered wooden frame awning. Only the outside boards around the top and wooden posts at each corner. The awning swayed back and forth in the light breeze ready to fall any moment. I wanted to warn the president the wooden frame could fall on him and injure him, but I did not have access to him due to the secret service.

    At the end of the speech, president Obama pulled out a large silver bowl filled with green leaves, which from a distance resembled a tossed salad. He took his hand and turned the leaves over and over preparing them to be served to the audience. There were a dozen or so workers stood which stood in front of the platform each with a silver bowl filled with green leaves. They turned the leaves over and over just like president Obama. President Obama then instructed the people all stand to their feet. I and a young boy to my right just remained seated. In fact we had not even noticed everyone was standing.

    President Obama instructed the workers to take their silver bowls and serve the audience as he told us that this was good for us. He instructed everyone to trust him and put the leaves in their mouth, chew and swallow and not to question him about it. It was the right thing to do.

    A worker came to me first and put the silver bowl in front of me and offered me the green leaves which did not appear to be edible at all. The leaves appeared to be ragweed leaves instead of lettuce. Ragweed is bitter to the taste and not edible. I looked across the aisle to see if other people were eating this junk and sure enough the audience in the first three rows was trying to, but not without choking and gagging on it first. I picked up three leaves from the bowl and looked at the texture. The texture was that of a rag and when I imagined trying to swallow a rag, I gagged. I knew I just could not swallow this.

    Journal Entry End –

    Meaning:

    In the dream president Obama represents America and himself. Serving the green leaves (ragweed) shows how bitter his message really is and that it is not good for this country. No matter how much spin is placed on the message by him or the media, It is not correct for our country or pleasing to God. The message was spoken in a way that sounded good to some listeners but when it is actually put into law it will be bitter (ragweed) and difficult to swallow for the nation. Other names for ragweed are bitterweed or bloodweed. Regardless how many times he and his staff tossed the green leaves it was still bitter which made it hard to swallow.  He believed that serving the green leaves in a silver bowl would fool the people into eating the bitter ragweed. In this dream the silver represents something admired and sought after.  Many people buy into everything Obama speaks. In politics it’s all about how you package the message more than substance. This applies to politicians on both sides of the aisle regardless if they are republican and democrat.

    ragweedThe few awning boards that remained above the platform represent the covering over the United States, which God placed above this great nation during its inception is now gone. The awning had once been a significant structure at one time, protecting all those who were under it. However, due to neglect and deliberate dismantling, the structure had deteriorated to the point that it no longer served as a covering.  God’s divine protection over this nation has been removed due to our neglect of the things of God. 

    The events which took place on September 11, 2001, happened when God allowed an opening in the covering for the enemy to slip in and attack our nation.  This served as a warning shot across our bow to get our attention.  Indeed, it caused many to turn to God for protection, but shortly afterwards, as a nation we returned to our evil ways. Hurrican Katrina in 2005 was another catastrophic event which rocked the nation for awhile but once again America ignored God’s judgment. In the dream president Obama did not recognize the condition of the awning, nor did the audience. The way the awning swayed with the gentlest of breezes indicates just how close we to a major event happening to this country.

    The world is experiencing birth pangs of the end of days. The world economy is close to collapse and with the slightest of breezes we could see a full blown monetary system meltdown. The United States is in a debt crisis and for the first time in our history on April 18, 2011 was downgraded in credit ratings by Standards & Poor’s with an “negative outlook”. By the condition of the awning I do not feel like it will be very long before we see catastrophic events in this nation which will not only rock our nation but the world. The recent events in Japan show how a nation can be rocked in just a few moments and how much suffering the Japanese people are sufferning right now.

    We need to pray for our president, leadership and our nation to repent and turn to God, but there is little time left. Just making political speeches will not restore the covering, only repentance.  I feel this nation will return back to its roots as a Christian nation but only after we suffer great difficulties which humble us and bring us to our knees before God.

    America, your covering is gone!

    Scripture Reference:

    I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. I Timothy 2:1-2

  • Wells of Confession

    Dream
    Date: 3/21/2011

    Journal Entry –

    I was in a large cavernous room which was well lit. The vast room was located inside a mountain which was accessed by a tunnel, that served as the only entrance to the room. The height from the ceiling to the floor must have been several hundred feet in height. In the middle of the floor there was a large dark hole about thirty feet in diameter without any type of barrier around it.

     well of confessionAs I stood there observing, a man walked through the tunnel and entered the room. He walked straight to the edge of the hole and stopped. Then he began to confess his sins and repented before God. It seemed effortless for the man to confess here at the large hole in the floor of the cave like room. Then I heard a voice say, “Wells of Confession”. The man had encountered the righteousness of God when he had approached the well.

    I was giving understanding that the entrance to this place was well hidden and the only way the man found the location was by his desperate search in seeking out God. Then and only then was he was led to this wonderful, hidden place of repentance.

    The next scene in the dream I found myself working with four or five people on a drilling platform. We would efficiently set it up the drilling rig and punched a hole in the earth, then move on to the next location. Once there we set up the drilling rig again and punched another hole in the earth. We kept repeating the same process well after well.

    Meaning

    That morning during my quiet time, Holy Spirit gave me the verses of Isaiah 59: 1-2

    Behold, the LORD’S hand is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. Isaiah 59: 1-2

    In the dream there was a small team of people working together with me on a well drilling platform. The team was made up of people who are like-minded to bring forth wells of confession to the sick, hurting, and castaways of life and go wherever God directs. The team will be assembled together by the direction of Holy Spirit to take the love and compassion of Christ to the ones who are crying out inside to know God. This ministry team will go wherever God directs them to go to show Christ to the sinner and bring forth restoration and life to the body and soul. There will be a heavy anointing of rightousness and conviction from Holy Spirit when this team ministers.

    The strong presence of Holy Spirit will be at the Wells of Confession causing many to repent and get right with God. Healings and miracles of all kind will take place as Holy Spirit moves on the hearts of the people. Just as Chirst ministered to the rich and the poor, the sick and the healthy, so shall it be in the true last days ministries.

    woman prayingJesus said when Holy Spirit comes, “And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged. John 16:8-11

    Christ commission for the believer is to take the good news to the sinners of the world.

    But when Jesus heard this, He said, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.”But go and learn what this means: ‘I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT SACRIFICE,’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mat. 9:12-13

    Historically, wells were important meeting places and a place to get life sustaining water. It took a lot of physical effort to dig a well in the natural as it will take a lot of prayer and personal ministry time in certain communities to dig a spiritual well of confession.

    God’s heart is for sinners! He sacrificed His Son that we may come boldly to the throne of grace.  As believers we need to cry out to God to give us a heart for lost souls. Concern for lost souls has all but disappeared from the church today. When was the last time you shared your faith with a lost sinner and loved them with the compassion of Christ?

  • A Great Storm Is Being Stirred Up

    March 17, 2011

    On the morning of March 17 when I entered quiet time the Lord directed me to Jeremiah 25:29-33. Have you sensed the change in the spiritual atmosphere in the earth? I believe many are wondering what is going on. It’s like a switch has been thrown and now the world is in such chaos. The Mideast political changes are occurring right before our eyes preparing the way for the one world leader to come forth at his appointed time.

    earthquake damageThe earth is shaking with great intensity causing many to stop and think…what if that happened to my city? What would I do? Literally, the earth has tottered on its axis even to the point of slowing down in time as it wobbles from the impact of these powerful earthquakes. The geographical location of the North Pole has moved several meters from recent geological events like the December 26, 2004 Malaysian earthquake which generated a massive tsunami killing a quarter million or more people.

    The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard And it totters like a shack, For its transgression is heavy upon it, And it will fall, never to rise again.” ?Isa. 24:30

    It’s difficult to watch the suffering which has been ongoing in the earth and to what purpose do these things happening? We are closer to the coming of the Lord than most people think. World events are happening simultaneously and in ever increasing severity, but again to what purpose?

    Is God trying to get a lost and dying earth’s attention? I think so. I will share a revelation on the time of the Lord’s return which He showed me in 2001 in my next blog.

    I couldn’t help but notice the headlines in one of the major online news websites the day after the powerful earthquake which hit Christchurch, New Zealand. The headline read “Christchurch in ruins”. Did you miss it church? Jesus spoke of a generation at the time of his return which will lack understanding of the signs of times or choose to ignore then hoping things will get better.

    “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

    Cognitive dissonance is an interesting study which helps explain how human nature deals with tragic world events. Important research generated by the theory has been concerned with the consequences of exposure to information inconsistent with a prior belief, what happens after individuals act in ways that are inconsistent with their prior attitudes, what happens after individuals make decisions, and the effects of effort expenditure.

    parched earthIn other words we as humans would rather ignore the problem, make excuses, hope it will not happen to us, find fault, criticize things or events that don’t match up to our prior beliefs about said things. To read more on Cognitive dissonance

    We must humble ourselves before God and allow Him (Holy Spirit our teacher) to show us the truth no matter what theology we have been indoctrinated in. Remember, God opposes the proud but gives such grace and mercy to the humble.

    On the eve of 2011, I had such an ominous sense of dread to enter the New Year. It is proving out to be a difficult year on the earth but nothing like what is coming in the next few years. The Lord showed me these verses below and I tell you it’s time for the nations to repent and turn to God. Time is running out to do so. The prophetic clock is ticking down…tick, tick, tick…

    Jeremiah 25:29-33

    “For behold, I am beginning to work calamity in this city which is called by My name, and shall you be completely free from punishment? You will not be free from punishment; for I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth,” declares the LORD of hosts.’ V.29

    “Therefore you shall prophesy against them all these words, and you shall say to them, ‘The LORD will roar from on high And utter His voice from His holy habitation; He will roar mightily against His fold. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, Against all the inhabitants of the earth. V.30

    ‘A clamor has come to the end of the earth, Because the LORD has a controversy with the nations. He is entering into judgment with all flesh; As for the wicked, He has given them to the sword,’ declares the LORD.” V.31

    Thus says the LORD of hosts, “Behold, evil is going forth From nation to nation, And a great storm is being stirred up From the remotest parts of the earth. V.32

    “Those slain by the LORD on that day will be from one end of the earth to the other. They will not be lamented, gathered or buried; they will be like dung on the face of the ground. V.33

  • The Pinnacle

    Journal Entry: 2/8/11 – Dream: The Pinnacle

    Mountain in HimalayasRecently in a dream I was removed from where I worked and taken on a journey to a location I did not know. A large truck-like vehicle was before me and I found a seat in the back of the vehicle as three other men joined me on the journey. Once we were all seated, the vehicle began to move along the path before us. I did not recognize the individual driving the vehicle, he just faced forward, never spoke or turned his head from the road ahead.

    I felt anxious because I didn’t know where I was being taken or what was going happen to me when I arrived. I didn’t have a hard hat or safety glasses and wondered if I would get reprimanded for arriving without them. The three men traveling along with me seemed to share the same anxiety that I was experiencing, we all sat in silence wondering, waiting…

    The driver kept looking forward never speaking to us as he focused on the destination. Miles and miles went by and then the road began to narrow just like the bow of a ship comes to a point. The road was bordered with cut stones to guide the traveler to the center. My breath left me in excitement as I saw the very point where the two sides of the road came together in a point, the Pinnacle.

    I jumped out of the vehicle and ran to the pinnacle (def. a pointed extremity), it was in a very high place overlooking the world. Suspended, directly in front of the pinnacle, was what appeared to be a reflection of Heaven framed in billowy white clouds. In awe of the beauty of this place, I slowly turned around surveying the splendor of the world below. I felt just like a mountain climber, who had successfully ascended the summit of Everest taking in the panoramic view for as long as I could; it was so beautiful to be in this place. In some ways I experienced the joy of what Peter felt when Jesus took the three disciple up on the mount of transfiguration.  “Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here.” Mat 17:4

    The other three men joined me at the Pinnacle. They wrapped their arms together and wanted me to take their picture. I wanted to video this place but all I had was the cell phone camera. The anxiety we had experienced earlier on the journey had been replaced with exuberance and awe of the wonder of this place.  Then the dream ended as quickly as it had begun, I awoke so refreshed and my heart was filled with encouragement.

     -Journal End –

    My reflections:

    The philosopher Nietzsche wrote, “For happiness, how little suffices for happiness! No matter how my walk may appear to the casual observer or to the harshest critic, it is ultimately my journey to walk and not anyone else’s. There is nothing more important than walking in the joy of the Lord in a real, alive and vibrant relationship with the Master.

    When we’re found of the Lord we enter into an exclusive relationship with the Master. It is extremely exclusive as two lovers engaged waiting for the wedding day. He sends us gifts, love letters and whispers in our ear from time to time as He jealously watches over us. No devil can snatch us away.

    This is the point and purpose of life; to live before our God in open consciousness, looking, waiting for His words to us and yielding to His will. Submission is everything! It calms our minds and truly puts Him in charge of our lives. When we reach this place, we enter into the arena of His perfect will and perfect journey towards the center thereof. He will guide us along the journey which He has set before we were ever created.

    Prior to the dream, I was in a place of gloom due to circumstances beyond my control. In the dream the Lord assured me that the things, which He has promised to me over the years, will come to pass. I believe He showed me this dream to encourage me because of the currently delay which I find myself in right now.  I have learned that not all delays are due my disobedience, failures or short comings. A believer may also experience spiritual delays due to their obedience. In some cases, God is working on others to get them in alignment to His will so He may use them to aid us in our journey.  If you’re experiencing this, pray God will show you the cause of your journey’s delay and if not do a lot of praying in the Spirit. When you find your journey in an extended delay don’t stop petitioning the Heavens until God announces to you that the delay is over. He will eventually!

  • The Additions

    The Additions

    Journal Entry: Dream

    Title: The Additions

    Date: 1/3/11

    Ithe additonsn the dream, I had a revelatory teaching the Lord had given me to share with a particular church; however, I knew they would reject hearing it from me since it went against their traditions. The photos in this article are a perfect example of the dream The Additions.

    An older lady down the street owned a huge building which she was going to renovate and appointed me to oversee the project. The structure had many levels and additions added over the course of many years. The lady instructed me that everything that wasn’t in the original plan was to be torn away from the structure so it could be seen in its original design.

    The crew started at the top of the building working their way down. The many additions over time had made the structure very unappealing to the eye and hindered its flow and function. It was now obvious that the additions were added by people that didn’t understand the original design or the concepts of the architect.

    As the additions were torn away, people began to come to the construction site and declare how beautiful the original design truly was. One lady said she had no idea that such a beautiful structure had been hidden from us for all these years. I said, “It’s beautiful, look at how the original architect designed the structure with was such simplicity and beauty.  This has been hidden from the world for so long.”

    Construction debris was piled up high all around the structure making it difficult to walk around.  The building was dark inside due to the additions that had sealed up the windows which were in the original design. The only light that penetrated into the building came from the front and rear doors which were just recently opened.

    Suddenly, a frightened sheep appeared out of a dark hallway and apparently it had been trapped in the structure for a long time. The sheep stood there in the darkness of the room, only being illuminated by the light, which poured into the room from the front door. The sheep wanted to escape to the light but I was standing in its path.  I stepped aside and the sheep run past me as fast as it could go disappearing out the front doorway.

    End of Journal Entry –

    Dream Interpretation

    church crowdThe lady who hired me to supervise the demolition of the structure represents Holy Spirit. All the additions are things that man has added to Christ’s message and Paul’s gospel since the inception of Christianity. The beauty of the original framing of the true gospel message and the walk in Christ has long been covered up by the works of man.  Regardless, if it was driven by good intentions or by ego, for power and control, or to influence and appear successful, it has taken away from the beauty of Christianity, not added to it.

    There is a longing for the real thing. The real thing which is Truth can’t be found in words. Although, words may be true they are not the Truth. The Truth is a person and his name is Jesus Christ. Real truth is found in a relationship with the Truth which is Jesus Christ.

    No matter how many additions are added to an original structure they will only mask the original structure, not reveal it. Today’s church system today is represented by all the additions that obstruct the function and flow of Christ’s people.

    I won’t soon forget the look on the lady’s face when she saw the beauty of the original design for the first time. Would the early believers recognize today’s form of Christianity? I think not! What if we could see it for ourselves?

    You may read this and wonder what are the additions that have been added to Christianity? I could list many here but I don’t want to appear mean spirited. It’s safe to say that just about everything you see as the organized church today was instituted by Christ, especially the clergy system that dominates the people. The only way believers will discover the additions which were added by man will be to seek Jesus Christ for the sole purpose of knowing Him in an intimate relationship and in time He will reveal Himself clearly to you and what is real worship.  It’s time for believers to humble ourselves, get before the Lord and truly seek Him for the sole purpose of loving Him. Christ is coming back for a bride that is without spot, wrinkle or blemish.

    Five Questions:

    A few months ago I was given an audience with the Lord.  I quickly grabbed my tablet and went into a room and closed the door.  I asked Him these five questions.

    Q1. Why don’t some churches grow?
    A1. Because they want it to grow.

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

    Q3. But didn’t the early church grow and increase?
    A3. As I added members.

    Q4. Why then do some churches grow and others 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 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.

    The message is clear. We must strip away all that is of man and return back to your first love. After all that is the message written to the churches in Revelation. If you truly want to promote the Kingdom then there needs to be changes made and the changes will begin on your knees before the Lord. Much has been done in His name that isn’t of God at all. Many things have been added to the simple Christian faith that isn’t of God at all. If you are going to walk with Him now is the time to take inventory of your motives, ego, doctrine and motivations and be truthful with God. Adk God to show you The Additions!

    Scripture References:

    “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. ‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. ‘Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. ‘He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'” Rev. 3: 14-22

    The key to knowing and following Christ is found in this verse: “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. Rev. 12:11



  • Angels In Our Midst

    Journal Entry: Angels in Our Midst

    Date: 11/20/2010

    angel at doorDuring quiet time I was re-reading portions from the book by H. A. Baker “Visions of Heaven” where the children were caught up in the spirit to heaven and experienced the immeasurable joy and laughter while playing with angels. The kids rolling, laughing and playing with angels painted a picture so wonderful to me. I meditated on how the Bible speaks of angels in our midst and how the kids described seeing angels during the out pouring of the Holy Spirit. Right then, I asked the Lord to let me experience the same joy and laughter as the Abdullam orphans did, I asked the Lord to send an angel to me since He has myriads of them just sitting around waiting for an assignment; I have faith for that kind of prayer and in fact,  I’ve prayed it many times before ministering and have seen God deliver the answer ever time.

    Later in the afternoon, after finishing a long walk in the park, I came into our home and sat down on the sofa with my dear wife. Suddenly, we heard the front glass storm door open and quickly close. We were sitting where we could look down the hall towards the front door and  both leaned forward looking in the direction of the sound we both heard and said together, “Did you hear that? It sounded like someone opened and closed the storm door.”

    Immediately, my wife got up and walked to the front door and opened it looking to see if anyone was there or nearby. No one was to be seen nor was there a package left at the door by someone.

    She returned back to the den where I was sitting and then I sensed the presence of an angel just to my right standing next to me.  As soon as I said, “I sense an angel here” I broke into a deep weeping, I mean I just melted and I couldn’t stop it. I wept for a short period of time and then the sobbing turned into laughter. I would begin to weep and end up with laughter and it continued for some time. I felt the joy of the Lord flooding into my soul bringing with it healing and a refreshing supernatural strength. This must be what the kids felt as described in the book “Vision of Heaven”. This was indeed a piece of heaven ministered to me by an angel of the Lord.

    Then as soon as the angel came, the angel left, but somehow I will never be the same. I told my wife of my prayer to receive the same joy and laughter that the kids felt and that this was the Lord answering my prayer. She said, “He really loves you,” her words were so beautiful and timely. My Lord indeed loves me and when He manifests His love to me in such a personable way, I can’t help but fall in love with Him all the more.  After all it is about growing in relationship with the Father that matters more than any other thing on this earth.

    Know Him and be known of Him. (Matthew 7)

  • To Be With Him

    Journal Entry: 9/9/2010

    Dream: Just To Be With Him

    kitty quiet time smlI was driving down the hi-way and was half-way between two small towns. I pulled my vehicle off to the side of the road onto the grass and got out. I walked to the rear of the vehicle and saw my cat (named Kitty) who is a dear family member.  She apparently had walked fifteen miles to get where I had stopped my vehicle. At first I didn’t like it that she had left her safe home until I realized how much she just wanted to be with me which was displayed by the great effort it took to come be with me. I picked her up in my arms and put her in the front passenger seat. She sat up tall and gleamed with joy because she was with me and I was very happy to be with her as well.

    Then the scene in the dream changed and I was sitting in the front passenger seat of my natural father’s vehicle. I always loved being with him although he didn’t speak that much to me. I was just so happy to be with him as he steered the vehicle onto a side road to show me things he found interesting. I looked over at him as he rode with his elbow sticking out the window and he pointed out things he wanted to show me; I loved every minute of it. Somehow, I knew he enjoyed it as much as I did.

    End of Dream:

    Meaning of dream:

    The dream is about how our heavenly Father loves for us to come to be with Him.  As much as I was touched by the effort my cat made to be with me, so does our heavenly Father appreciate our effort to be with Him. The thrill I felt when I realized that my cat risked everything by coming so far to be with me melted my heart. She gave up her safety, comfort, resources and family to follow me; I was so touched. The Lord impressed upon me that this is how He feels when His children come just to be with Him in fellowship.  He loves us being with Him and looks for those who will come spend time with Him. Few will make the effort but those who do are greatly rewarded.

    Many times when I have been before the Lord I experienced the supernatural things of God which would not have happened if I hadn’t disciplined myself to spend intimate time with Him. Many people are seeking the supernatural of God but aren’t seeking Him for Him alone.

    I can remember just sitting in the same room with my natural father just because I wanted to be with him. I wasn’t necessarily expecting anything from him each time but when he did open up and share mysteries of his life it made me want to know him all the more.

    Our heavenly Father is much like that in regard to wanting us to be with Him and if He chooses to open up, you will want to keep coming back time and time again to be with Him, wanting to know Him all the more.

    I promise you if you will make the effort to be with Him in a steadfast, faithful manner, He will reveal Himself at a time of His choosing. After all He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

    “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Heb 11:6

    Jesus taught it is necessary to deny ourselves and follow Him which is key to knowing the things of God. He also declared that we will be known by our fruit.

    priest praying“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.” “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.”So then, you will know them by their fruits. “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many  miracles?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ Mat 7:18-23

    How do you get to know someone? You spend time with them as often as you can. You exchange thoughts and learn about one another. Over a period of time you build a relationship that truly is wonderful and unique. We hear how it is important to know God and most take that to mean read the Bible and learn about Him but that is only part of the equation. Jesus makes it clear in Matthew 7 verse 23 that he will declare to them, “I never knew you”.

    I can read about the president of the country but that doesn’t mean I know him. I only know about him. However, if I spend time visiting with him, eventually I can say I know him and he knows me.

    Relationship is the one thing that is threaded into God’s word from Genesis to Revelation. From the beginning of man in the Garden up to now God is looking for people who want to know Him in a true relationship. That is what it is about…RELATIONSHIP! When the Lord showed me Mat 7:18-23 some years ago and what He would do with those who use Him to self-promote their ministry I heard Him clearly say to me, “It’s about RELATIONSHIP”! I have kept true to that revelation ever since no matter what I’m going through I go through it in a pure relationship with my Lord.

    I believe relationship is the one key thing that is missing in the messages preached today. Relationship is the true foundation of walking with God and being pleasing in His sight. In a few verses just after Jesus said, “I never knew you” He teaches about building your house on the rock so you can stand when the floods come and they will come.

    Relationship goes beyond just knowing the scriptures because He is the incarnate Word. Just knowing the Word won’t keep you from perishing in Hell but being known intimately of God will. If you read the book by Mary K. Baxter, “A Divine Revelation of Hell” you will never be the same person again. You will be amazed at the revelation which she brings from her journeys there and how many lost souls speak scriptures in the flames of their torment. You can search the Internet and find the book, audio or soft copy version. The Start of Audio version: Part 1 of 14.

    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.” Mat. 16:24

    And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.” MK 8:34

    relationshipAnd He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father.” But He said to him, “Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God.” Another also said, “I will follow You, Lord; but first permit me to say good-bye to those at home.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:59-62

    Jesus spoke about the sower of the seed and how the devil would come to steal the Word of God from the heart. The rocky ground is where the roots of the seed couldn’t go down deep enough to survive the heat and dry climate and the thorns which grew up to choke out the plant representing the cares of the world.

    We live in a busy world and have things on our plate but we must make time to be with the Father. It is the key vital part that is missing in most Christians walk. Many people try to substitute attending church as being with the Father but that isn’t the same. Is being in a public meeting with your spouse the same as being alone with them in an intimate setting?  Of course not and neither is your public display intimate time with the Father. It can be part of your walk but God never intended it to replace time alone with Him.

    He wants us to come and desires it more than we know. Think about how you feel when your spouse, kids, dear friends or pets come to you just to be with you and how that makes you feel. Now imagine how the Father feels when you come to be with Him for no other reason than you just want to spend time together. Relationship is the true foundation of the believers walk and truly isn’t an option with God. Think about that statement for a second. If you want the things of God you have to be known of God and that requires a relationship with Him.

    I hope you will make the necessary changes to your walk and make relationship with Him a priority. It will forever change you!

    Be Blessed In a Fruitful Relationship with Him,
