The Assignments

The Assignments

Journal Entry Dream Date: 2/20/2013

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

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

End

Meaning:

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

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

Who are the ones getting the final day assignments?

The scriptures explain it clearly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Preparation of the Bride – Pt. 2 –Meet With Me

    Preparation of the Bride – Pt. 2 –Meet With Me

    Journal Entry: Dream
    Title: Meet With Me
    Date: 9/20/2010

    lady prayingI was walking along a path and in my hands I had some technical documents, advertisement flyer and a device much like a smart phone. As I passed by some ladies I accidently hit a button on the device and it began to play music. They said, “Leave it here with us so we can listen to music!” I had already fumbled around on the device and somehow turned the music off.  No matter how hard I tried I could not turn it back on.

    Then a nice you lady wearing a modest, brown dress came up to me and said, “I have something I want to talk to you about.” She walked into a building and went into a room and closed the door. I kept fumbling around with the smart phone at the same time trying to manage the other objects that were in my hands to the point I just couldn’t let the nice young lady wait any longer. I put the papers, flyer and smart device down and went into the room where the lady was waiting. I started to leave the door partly open to protect her reputation but it was so noisy outside I closed it and she nodded her approval.  She had on glasses and an old style hair-do. We looked eye to eye as she sat across from me. Then she said, “Three years ago I committed to going to a meeting one night a week and I have done so faithfully for three years.  Now I know Him, I know the things He likes and I see the things His does.  I know Him intimately. I’m not the same any more. It has transformed me in ways I can’t begin to explain. “

    Then I saw the most beautiful cobalt blue orbs and spheres filled with secret knowledge of the things of God form in the space between the lady and myself.  These were secrets that He will only reveal to those who are intimate with Him. There are things which are to be revealed to us if we will come and meet with Him. That was made very clear to me.

    The young lady shared some things she was shown about Christ that are beyond the ability of a human to know on our own. These things ‘stretched’ my thinking somewhat but were believable because the Spirit made it so.

    She said, “Just commit to one meeting a week for three years and you will know Him and what He likes and what He likes to do.”

    The dream ended.

    End of journal entry:

    The Dream Interpretation:

    praying on stepsThe young lady represents a messenger from Holy Spirit.  The brown dress represents warmth and caring, even pastoral duties. Holy Spirit is the one who will prepare the believers to become the bride of Christ. One of the ways this will happen is spending time meeting with Him once a week for three years with the door closed to protect the intimate time together.  It is important to block out the noise of the world during these meetings as well escape from our busy lives and allow time for Holy Spirit to minister to us.  We are constantly bombarded by media which wants to do one thing and that is to influence our lives. Read Influence

    The things I saw in the open vision she put before me were like cobalt blue orbs that spiraled out and revealed wonderful amazing revelation of the secret things of God.  These secrets will hit our understanding for the first time and we will be taken back by the knowledge but know it was from God.  Paul wrote about being caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak. 2 Corinthians 12:2-4

    This isn’t mandatory but it is essential for the bride of Christ to make this choice. Do we want to let go of all the things that are so distracting in our lives and set aside one evening a week to meet with Him?

    In the Jewish wedding tradition there is a preparation of the bride where she is given a ritual bath up to two days before the wedding, typically during the night. (… A day is a thousand years and a thousand-years is as a day. 2 Peter 3:8

    The place of bathing is called Mikvah and several biblical regulations specify that full immersion in water is required to regain ritual purity after ritually impure incidents have occurred. Most forms of impurity can be nullified through immersion in any natural collection of water. Some, such as a Zav, however require “living water,” such as springs or groundwater wells. Living water has the further advantage of being able to purify even while flowing as opposed to rainwater which must be stationary in order to purify.

    Moses instructed the people to consecrate and wash themselves prior to meeting with the Lord. This is a type & shadow of what the Lord is showing us to do now which is to consecrate our lives and meet with Him and be washed in the living water prior to meeting with Him upon His return.

    The LORD also said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments; and let them be ready for the third day, for on the third day the LORD will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.” Ex. 19:10-11

    The Lord knows those that are His, He isn’t coming back for a harlot nor will He join himself to a bride that doesn’t know or hasn’t shown any interest in knowing Him. Read Preparation of the Bride Pt. 1

    Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of theLord is to abstain from wickedness.” 2 Tim. 2:19

    bride closeupWould you marry someone who you didn’t know and who really wasn’t interested in spending time with you? Or if each time you wanted to be with them they had something much more important to do or they want to be with someone else? Would you marry that kind of person? Of course not and Christ will not either.

    Just after quiet time the same morning the Lord put in my spirit the chorus to a song by an 80’s band Tears For Fears as I began singing the words…

    Shout, shout, let it all out
    These are the things I can do without
    Come on, I’m talking to you, come on

    Shout, shout, let it all out
    These are the things I can do without
    Come on, I’m talking to you, come on

    Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. Eph. 5:25-27

    “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” Rev. 19:7

    Will you commit to one evening a week for three years to meet with Jesus Christ privately and in sincerity to get to know Him and be washed in the living water of the Lord? His promise to us is that you will be rewarded with a beautiful life changing relationship in which He will show you all about Him and you will truly enter into a relationship with the living God.

    I pray you will pass this along to as many as you know who love God and who sense His return but don’t know what to do to prepare. The bride must make herself ready! Come to the living water and be cleansed.

    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

    May you be blessed richly in the knowledge and truth of Christ.

  • Calling The Bride

    “The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.” Rev. 22:17

    bride“I brought you through another year, I am faithful and true to My word. Be pleased in Me and know that all things work for your good because I have called you. In the midst of all the naysayers, doubters, scoffers and an obstinate generation, I do have some who blindly follow Me along the path I have chosen for them.

    This is a quick and easy way to My glory even though to you it doesn’t seem easy or quick! The might of the Lord assures your safe arrival to the next destination in the Spirit; a level which is filled with intrigue, mystery and adventure. You say, “Lord what is all this about?” I tell you that the time of many mysteries are to be solved and it will play out as you seek Me. I will unveil even more than you can imagine.

    Palaces are filled with the rich, powerful and influential people but they don’t have any influence with Me nor is their wealth impressive before Me. I say that the truly rich are the ones who pursue My heart and My ways with all sincerity. These are the ones that will inherit My Kingdom; never forget this.

    The world you live in is upside down just as Satan has poisoned it with worldly thinking and worldly ways. This will blind all who pursue its wealth, its fame, its glory, come out of it all the more saints. Flee its influence for the day is soon coming when I will send forth My judgments upon the whole world and it’s evil. Submit unto Me, resist the Devil and he will flee from you; indeed he will.

    come to meNow you say, “I am ready to come closer this year, I am ready to come up higher in You Lord. I am weary of being where I am.” But I say My child come unto Me and I will show you that your victory and destiny lay in winning at the level you are at now for this is the mystery of contentment; the secret to being happy in all things says the Lord. Many saints want to hop from level to level as quickly as they can like in a Mario Brothers computer game, “Ha” I say, for life in Me isn’t that way. I’m in no hurry to see you gain levels, the next level only promises you more of the same. Am I not the same yesterday, today and tomorrow?

    Here is the saint’s assignment in the coming year:

    Come unto Me, forget your way, your understanding and come with a pure heart, with pure motives, come only to love Me and let Me love you. Come to My feet and weep and I will restore your soul, I will grant you the desires of your heart.  My ways are not your ways so quit trying to figure Me out; you can’t! My ways are written in My word over and over again, My values have been clearly spoken. My plans for you are My plans are they not? So come to Me and I will begin to take you further along the journey into Me.  Your destiny isn’t a place, your destiny is Me, I AM your destination.  Just come unto your God and experience My depths and you will escape your world, your life and your understanding.

    This is the year for the saints to ignore the world altogether. Why are you spending so much time in worry about a system that is passing away and passing away very soon? Don’t get involved in the debates. These things are better left to politicians, to leadership and to those whose steps are mired in that system.

    gardenFor My people, I am opening up My Kingdom and giving access like never before, come and see if this isn’t true. My bride will begin to assemble herself in her courts; the court of My Presence. Her garden is empty of her presence at this moment, desolate, gray and flowerless, dry, dirty and contemptible because her garden is not kept.

    But now I am calling her out from the world, from the harlotry that she is doing.  I am calling her out of her playing and adultery with foreign spirits, unclean spirits, which have caused her devotion to Me to be small.  Her shame is great, her values are not mine.  Her priorities are not Mine nor is her heart and the lover she has chosen has done nothing but abuse her.

    Now I say I am calling her out, I am moving upon her heart to set her free, I am calling her to Me.  I am breaking the chains of her adultery, her addictions, and her fornications.  I am calling her unto Me; to her garden, a chaste garden for only Me.  I am calling her to her garden of preparation, for the Lord says, come to Me and I will give you garments of white linen to cover your nakedness and I will clean your heart, I will put My heart in you.

    This is the year…Come!”

    “Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and the nursing infants. Let the bridegroom come out of his room And the bride out of her {bridal} chamber.” Joel 2:16

    “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready. It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright {and} clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.” Rev. 19:7-8

    “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.” Rev. 21:2

    “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”” Rev. 21:9



  • The Adulterous Church – Many Are Called – Few Chosen

    Journal entry August, 25, 2009 – At 5:15 am – I heard in the Spirit what sounded like a “notifier contentment” ring tone available on a Blackberry phone. I quickly turned to my phone, which was on the nightstand table, to see if the sound possibly could have originated from the phone. The phone indicated that it had no message activity at all. In fact the alarm, which initiated at the present time of 5:45 am, that morning didn’t play the alarm tone at all. I had to pull the battery out, reinstall it to reboot the phone, in order for the sounds to start working properly again.

    I have heard other messages similar to this one in the Spirit before when God was about to give a revelation or a word to me or to me for someone else; Hearing in the Spirit sounds as real as hearing in the natural. The best way I know to distinguish the origin of the sound is to take a quick inventory of my surroundings looking for anything that may have caused the sound. A good example would be knocking at the front door, if no one is at the door; nor anyone in the area at the time of the knocking, more than likely you heard in the Spirit. If you can rule out all natural sources of the sound, then you may indeed have heard something in the Spirit. Therefore, I put myself on full alert to be listening, watching and waiting to see what the Lord had to say to me. Hab. 2:1-2

    adulterous-church1Journal entry August 26, 2009 – Sometime during the night I was given a series of dreams where a bed was situated in the middle of a dark expansive room that reached into infinity. The bed was the only piece of furniture in the room.  Lying in the bed was a naked woman and she was committing adultery with another being, which was a demonic spirit. I saw Jesus standing out in from of me, slightly to my right, watching this take place.  I heard Him say, “This isn’t my bride”. I began to say, “Oh Lord I don’t want to be part of this, Lord forgive us, and forgive your church!”

    The same message was given to me in a dream July 17, 2009. Read The Preparation of the Bride – The Epoch Dream #5 The Condition of the Bride.

    Scripture Ref. 1 Cor. 6:15-16 “Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body {with her?} For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.”

    I believe the primary spirit in which the church is committing adultery is the Babylonian spirit. What is the spirit of Babylon?

    Martin Luther wrote in 1520, “Hence we see how angry God is with us, in that he has permitted godless teachers to conceal the words of this testament from us, and thereby, as much as in them lay, to extinguish faith. And the inevitable result of this extinguishing of faith is even now plainly to be seen – namely, the most godless superstition of works. For when faith dies and the word of faith is silent, works and the traditions of works immediately crowd into their place. By them we have been carried away out of our own land, as in a Babylonian captivity, and despoiled of all our precious possessions. This has been the fate of the mass. It has been converted by the teaching of godless men into a good work, which they themselves call an “opus operatum” (from the works done referring to the efficacy of the Sacraments) and by which they presumptuously imagine themselves all-powerful with God.”

    Babylonian SpiritThe Babylonian spirit is a spirit that sets out to extinguish faith with false doctrine which leads man into works. For when faith dies there is no faith which leads people to ascend to God in their own way. It disrupts the plan and purposes of God by its influence of a non-God spirit.

    The Babylonian spirit influences ministries to do works such as, let us build, let us make a name for ourselves, let us do great projects, let us be like God. It replaces the faith with works and does not follow nor seek the leading or direction of Holy Spirit.

    And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. Gen. 11:4

    “Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the Lord ” Jeremiah 51:53

    Through false teachers which infiltrated the church hundreds of years ago the church has been divided and led into error and immorality.  Those who are to be the bride of Christ will have to come out of the religious system which is controlled by the Babylonian spirit.

    In the book of Revelation, the Bible gives us a clear picture of the spiritual status of the world in the last hour of the age. If the Bible says that in the end time judgment the Babylonian spirit falls, that tells me that it had ascended to a high place.

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

    In the book of Revelation, Jesus said to the early churches that they were holding on to false teachings, were eating things sacrificed to idols, tolerated the spirit of Jezebel and were committing acts of immorality. This pretty much sums up the methodology of the Babylonian spirit and it very much paints a picture of the world church today.

    Bride MadeReady“And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: The One who has the sharp two-edged sword says this: ‘But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit {acts of} immorality.  So you also have some who in the same way hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.” Rev 2: 12, 14-15 (Note: The Nicolaitans refers to those who, while professing themselves to be Christians, lived licentiously (recklessly and/or extravagantly.) This sounds exactly like the majority of the church today!)

    To the church at Thyatira:

    “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this: ‘But I have {this} against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit {acts of} immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.” Rev 2:18, 20

    To the church at Sardis:

    “But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. ‘He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Rev. 3: 4-6

    To the church at Laodicea:

    “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,” Rev. 3: 14-17

    When looking at the western church today, particularly America, I see the same immorality in the world has crept in. Not only is there gross immorality in the church today it is tolerated to a great extent and even defended by many denominations. The loss of the message of consecration and holiness has created a church which has no authority or the fire of God. For most Christians, intimacy with Christ was lost long ago and what remains exhibits few of the characteristics of the bride of Christ.

    As a prerequisite, the bride of Christ will have both fire and authority because she has been purged, purified and refined by His winnowing fork. The message I keep hearing from Holy Spirit is, “Come out of her my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues”.

    Recently the Father was speaking to me and said something which caused me to shudder. He said, “My bride doesn’t come from the church as much as from out of the world”.  That statement shook me somewhat but I know it is true. The great end-time harvest will bring in many souls from the world and a huge contingent will be made of youth. Those who are truly in the church system today, and are truly seeking Christ in intimacy, will come out of the church system to serve the Lord’s bride as gatherers and preparers, for the bride to make herself ready.

    “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright {and} clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he *said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ ” And he *said to me, “These are true words of God.” Rev 19: 7-9

    Preparation of the BrideAccording to the Bible, the marriage supper of the Lamb is by invitation only. We must be a close and intimate acquaintance with the bridegroom to be invited and show up wearing the proper dinner attire.   In Matthew 22: 11-14 “But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, and he *said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?’ And the man was speechless. “Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ “For many are called, but few {are} chosen.”

    The Message From the Podiums Must Change

    In the prearranged times of God there are revelations and insight released to appointed faithful individuals of God which bring new understanding to the body of Christ of the things of God. God has used individual such as Martin Luther, John Wesley, Kenneth Hagin and many others for His divine purpose. A now God is saying to the body of Christ, “I’m doing a new thing and it’s time to move from this mountain”.

    “”The LORD our God spoke to us at Horeb, saying, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Duet 1:6

    There has been a paradigm shift in the Spirit of God and places His focus on the preparation of His bride. The message from the pulpits must align with the purpose of God. Going forward, it will become evident which ministers are truly hearing Holy Spirit and which ones are not. Christ is coming back for a bride without spot, wrinkle or blemish; a bride which has made herself ready for the Son of God.  All those who hear His voice say, “Come out of the world and follow Me,” make yourself ready!

    “{Come} with me from Lebanon, {my} bride, May you come with me from Lebanon. Journey down from the summit of Amana, From the summit of Senir and Hermon, From the dens of lions, From the mountains of leopards. Sgs 4:8

  • Millions Will Perish – End Times

    On a Friday morning a few years ago, I was quietly lying in bed not thinking about a thing, when God opened my spirit, put a scroll inside me, giving me understanding of the parable of the Ten Virgins. Then I heard the Him say, “Millions will perish because of that teaching, the pre-tribulation teaching!”

    The Father had just tied the pre-tribulation doctrine and the parable of the ten virgins together. I rejoiced at hearing His voice but the meaning of what He revealed made my stomach nauseas with the thought of millions of people needlessly perishing. The nausea didn’t lift until noon that same day.

    scrollA similar experience is found in Revelation chapter ten, “So I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, Take it and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey. I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and in my mouth it was sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter. And they said to me, You must prophesy again concerning many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.” Rev 10: 9-11.

    I’ve had this revelation for over four years but only now have I been released to present it to the body of Christ. The delay wasn’t because God didn’t want the body to know, it was because as He said, “They’re not ready to listen!”  I hope you will listen now and consider the heart of God in this matter and draw close to Him and reconsider all that you think you know about Him and His word.

    I release this word to as many people, nations, tongues and kings that will listen, but if not I have fulfilled my obligation to warn and speak out so that they may live.

    What Was the Father Teaching ther Talking About?

    The teaching that the Father said will cause millions to perish is the pre-tribulation doctrine.  The pre-tribulation doctrine has prevented millions from having any urgency to prepare themselves for the challenges ahead with statements like, “We’ll be out here before any real trouble begins and those that don’t believe will be left behind.” “When the church is pulled out of here then all hell will break loose.”  So why should people prepare if the only teaching they have ever heard leads them to believe they will not be here for the tribulation?

    The pre-tribulation teaching removes preparation, urgency and purification from the body of Christ; for Christ will return for His bride that is without spot or blemish.

    He said, “Go {your way,} Daniel, for {these} words are concealed and sealed up until the end time. Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.” Dan. 12:9-10

    This doctrine has become the principal teaching about the return of Christ to the church and the world.  It is propagated by most seminaries, preachers, teachers and it’s on the bookshelves in the Christian book stores. Christian TV ministers declare it to be so with charts and graphics.  Movies are made about it and conferences are held with speakers who support this doctrine as absolute truth and as the revelation of God Word. How could it be incorrect if it is taught by almost everyone from church leadership on down with few exceptions, and I mean few?

    I know many Christians who emphatically believe the pre-tribulation doctrine and love God, serve Him and are extremely consecrated in their lives before God. The parable of the ten virgins isn’t talking about them. They will be alright as I explained in  “The Three Legged Donkey.”

    Parable of the Ten Virgins

    “Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and {began} to sleep. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet {him.}’ Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ “But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you {too;} go instead to the dealers and buy {some} for yourselves.’ And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ “But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.'” Mat. 25:1-12

    What does the flask represent?

    The flask represents the soul. The foolish virgins had not spent intimate time in the presence of the Lord getting to know Him nor did they allow their soul to be consecrated unto God by doing the Word of God. They lived their lives to God in a very impersonal, superficial relationship. They went to church and perhaps worked on staff in the church. Some served on church committee after committee, others were national and international known ministers but didn’t seek God in prayer nor had they established an intimate, personal relationship with God; they promoted their own ministry and live exclusively for themselves and not Christ.

    What does the oil represent?

    oil_of_anointingThe oil represents the anointing and consecration to God.

    “Then you shall take some of the blood that is on the altar and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle {it} on Aaron and on his garments and on his sons and on his sons’ garments with him; so he and his garments shall be consecrated, as well as his sons and his sons’ garments with him. Ex. 29:21 “See How to Grow the Anointing.”

    What does the wick represents?

    The wick represents the flesh nature.

    “Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.” Eph. 2:3

    What do the foolish represent?

    You can substitute godless for foolish and be perfectly accurate in translating the meaning. “The foolish are lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable…holding to a form of godliness but have denied its power.” 2 Tim 3:1-5

    What things did the foolish and wise have in common?

    All ten virgins were invited to the wedding feast.

    All ten virgins had lamps.

    All ten virgins went out to meet the bridegroom.

    All ten virgins experienced delay.

    All ten virgins got drowsy and slept.

    All ten virgins heard the shout, “Behold the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!”

    What distinguishes the foolish from the wise in this parable?

    The foolish virgins took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise brought along a flask filled with oil.  Not taking oil with them made them five virgins foolish.

    “Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them” Mat. 25:2-3

    Why Did the Foolish Not Take Oil With Them?

    Have you ever wondered why the foolish virgins didn’t take any oil with them?

    They didn’t have any oil to take!

    It’s because they had been taught that there would be no delay and so they didn’t need any oil. They were told they were saved, they had their ticket to heaven punched and all they had to do is wait to hear that trumpet sound and they would be taken out of harm’s way in a twinkling of an eye to be with the Lord. Even before any trouble comes, the Bridegroom would come and carry them away leaving poor souls behind. The foolish virgins didn’t spend time learning about the Bridegroom and by not having flasks filled with oil indicates their lack of preparation.

    Delay, What Delay?

    One common theme in this parable is that the foolish and the wise all experienced “delay”. “Now while the Bridegroom was delaying” Mat. 25:5. In other words the Bridegroom didn’t come when the foolish expected Him to return and had made no provision for the delay. The wise virgins on the other hand brought flasks with them showing they were prepared for the delay. Because the foolish have no oil reserve and the delay is long lasting during hard and difficult times, they cry out to the wise virgins for some of their oil. The foolish virgins then realize that they haven’t made themselves ready. The times have become dark and difficult and it’s hard to navigate through all the challenges. The light that is them is going out. Only if they had been taught they needed to prepare for this they would be like the wise virgins (prudent) who were able to withstand the perilous wait and shine brighter than ever. The Bible says, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Phil. 2:12

    What made the five virgins wise?

    The wise virgins knew the Bridegroom intimately and longed to be with Him. They lived their lives doing whatever it took to be prepared to meet Him regardless of when He came. No matter how long the delay or how difficult the times may be, their souls were filled with fine precious oil they had purchased from the dealer whose name is Holy Spirit.

    Characteristics of the Foolish

    fleshThe foolish virgins are double minded and lack wisdom which comes from God and live life for themselves. A divided-minded Christian can’t receive anything from God and will have things in their lives that just stand out as not being of God.

    “But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, {being} a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways.” James 1:6-8

    “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you doubleminded.” James 4:8

    One minute the foolish may be acting Godly and truly mean it, and the next their wrapping someone’s house with toilet paper. You’ll find the foolish quoting scriptures only to be followed by the latest coarse joke or jesting; these are people with no flask of oil in their lives. They aren’t truly consecrated to God and are known to God as “foolish.”

    “For My people are foolish, They know Me not; They are stupid children And have no understanding. They are shrewd to do evil, But to do good they do not know.” Jer. 4:22

    Trimming of the Lamps

    A lamp has a wick and that wick represents our flesh. If the flesh in our life isn’t properly trimmed, the light of God within us will not burn brightly. Left untrimmed it will put out more smoke than light and actually become toxic and hard to be around.

    Do you know people like that?

    MillionsThey’re mostly smoke and toxic to be around.  Smoke represents souls, which are really messed up with a mixture of fine and awful things. The Bible speaks of them as double minded or divided souls that have been polluted by the things of the world.

    “For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.” Gal. 5:17

    Because the foolish couldn’t trim their wicks, it indicates they hadn’t brought their flesh into subjection of Holy Spirit and weren’t submitted to God. They weren’t living disciplined lives before God. What do you look at, what do you read, whatever you listen to can harm you if it isn’t of God.  There are many doors opened by the spirit that is behind TV shows, movies, music, books, etc.  Media always has a spirit behind it of some kind wither good or bad, it’s there. Read Influence

    I know Christians that can quote scriptures and it just falls flat because the anointing isn’t working in their life. Have you been in a prayer meeting when certain people pray and there isn’t an ounce of anointing in their prayer? Have you heard testimonies that fell flat because they weren’t of God but came from a self promoting soul? Now you are beginning to see what a foolish Christian looks like. I’ve seen Christians even in leadership roles that were full of tricks, bad jokes, coarse jesting and the like. One minute they’re telling of how God moved in their meetings and an hour before that they were saran wrapping someone’s car in the church parking lot.  The foolish talk the talk but can’t walk the walk. These things ought not be!

    “Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.” James 3:13

    “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,” Rom 8:6

    Summary

    As you can see, the foolish virgins perished as well those who weren’t pursuing God with all their spirit soul and body. The foolish (ungodly) fill the church today and it is the foolish that will not be able to weather the storm of the tribulation to come.

    Paul said, “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, {which is} your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Rom. 12:1-2

    “Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin {as} instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members {as} instruments of righteousness to God.” Rom. 6:13

    The call of God to the body of Christ is to make ourselves ready! “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready. It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright {and} clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.” Rev. 19:7-8

    “Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Lk. 21:34-36

    Comment by Reader:

    I wanted to take a moment to share my appreciation for your faith in our Father and his faithfulness to you and your wife through grace and divine inspiration. Reading your personal experiences of the hand-in-hand walk with our Savior and thru the wisdom and understanding of Holy Spirit has truly encouraged me to seek Him with all of my mind, my heart, my soul and my strength. We serve an amazing Creator who desires us to have a very intimate relationship with Him. Your recent “vision” of the Three-Legged Donkey-End Times and Millions Will Perish-End Times has opened my servant heart to receive God’s truth as opposed to steadfastly holding onto the more popular belief of a pre-tribulation rapture. It has encouraged me to grow “deep roots” into our Father and to prepare extra flasks of oil for my lamp should Christ tarry his return. Dressed daily in the full body armor as provisioned in Ephesians, we must be prepared to protect our hearts in these last days and conquer through the power of Holy Spirit and in the grace, peace and love of our beautiful Christ.
    Blessings upon you and your home.
    Robert



  • Influence – Matthew 10:35

    influenceThursday morning March 5, 2009, when in quite time, I heard the Father say one word to me, “Influence” and then He gave me the scripture Matthew 10:35. He was teaching that His influence must be preeminent in our lives over that of a father, mother, mother in law. All acquaintances must take a back seat to Him. The entire verse speaks of influence. Since the beginning, God used His spoken word to influence matter and create the heavens and the world. This word is a vital key for the preparation of the Bride of Christ! When you think about it…It’s all about influence and Jesus wants to have influence with His children, His Bride.
    Jesus Came to Be Our Source of Influence:

    Jesus was talking and teaching about influence in Matthew 10:35, “For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; and A MAN’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD.

     He came to inject His influence more than even the most important people or relationship in our lives. Today Jesus wants to teach us about influence.  

    Influence means: 

    1. The act or power of producing an effect without apparent exertion of force or direct exercise of command. b. corrupt interference with authority for personal gain. c. the power or capacity of causing an effect in indirect or intangible ways. To sway means use a controlling influence. Merriam – Webster Dictionary

    So many times in the gospels of Matthew through John the phrase, “and He began to teach” is used. Jesus began to exert His influence to the His disciples and all who would come to listen to Him. Jesus came to show us the Father and by teaching the word of God and by His life the world was never the same since. It’s been almost two-thousands years since Jesus was crucified and His influence changed the world forever.

     Acquaintances

    If you want to go on with God and follow Him then you will eventually have to end some acquaintances which have influenced your life in worldly, ungodly ways or have the potential to influence your life instead of Christ.

    You will have to end your connections with old familiar things such as houses, occupation, cities, identities and most people your formerly knew.

    “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. “He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it. Mat. 10: 33-39

    peopleJesus is teaching that His ways, wisdom, purpose and direction for our lives must have preeminence over man’s influence. His influence must take preeminence over any outside influence or interference. Most often family, friends, society, media, governments and the like will influence you in their ways, their tradition, their understanding instead of allowing you to be totally influenced by God’s ways.

    An example of influence is how children’s political beliefs usually align with their parents political beliefs. If your parents were democrats, it is more than likely you will align your beliefs to that particular party. If your parents were republicans, you’ll most likely lean to the Republican Party.  This holds true to religious beliefs as well. If you were raised Roman Catholic, Protestant, Baptist, Church of Christ or some other religion you are most likely to follow their doctrines instead of the full gospel message as taught to by Holy Spirit. In other words let Holy Spirit influence you instead of the doctrines of man’s theology. If you do you will soon discover new truths that you never saw before and the walk in Christ becomes even more real, exciting and fun.

    “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

    Opinions or the Word:

    When someone asks you what your opinion is about a matter it is vital that you point them to what the word of God says and not your own opinion. Many believers will and can only discuss a matter through their theological understanding or their church doctrine. When I asked the Father what theology meant to Him He responded with, “Its man’s attempt to explain what he doesn’t understand.”

    Often when a person has a, “renewing of faith” experience more times than not they will go back to the same religious affiliation in which they were raised up in. In some cases what God has ignited in their hearts begins to fade due to the teaching, doctrines and understanding of man and Christ influence dwindles.

    Jesus told the Pharisees when they applied their influence upon a person (proselyte) that they would make them twice the child of hell as they were.

    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves. Mat. 23:15

    Jesus’ Yoke of Influence Brings Rest:

     “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Mat. 11:28-30

    Satan’s Influence:

    antichristAfter Jesus told the disciples that he would suffer, be rejected by the elders, and be killed and rise again then Peter took him aside to rebuke him.  

    And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. And He was stating the matter plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and *said, “Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.” 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 begin dying to self) and follow Me. Mat. 8:31-34

     It is a safe saying that wherever there is sin in our life there is an evil influence working against us.

     “for our struggle isn’t 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. Eph. 6:12

     Anti-Christ:

    “And through his shrewdness He will cause deceit to succeed by his influence; And he will magnify {himself} in his heart, And he will destroy many while {they are} at ease. He will even oppose the Prince of princes, But he will be broken without human agency. Dan. 8:25

    Deluding Influence:
    To those who will not (refuse) receive the love of the truth at some point God will send upon them a deluding influence and they will believe the lie of the Satan and his antichrist and false prophet. This spirit is at work already in the world today. It is a strong spirit and will over power all who don’t know the truth of God’s word and walk in a personal relationship with Him.

    {that is,} the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,  and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 2 Th. 2:9-11

    Religious Influence:

    Christian influence is a good thing. With few exceptions nations that are not founded on Christian beliefs fall behind in education at all levels, science, quality of life and religious freedom is suppressed and democracy is non-existent.

    As Christian we are to be doing our best to influence the people and the world around us with the example of our life, our faith, our joy and love.

    We have allot of competition for souls today, perhaps more than ever before in the history of man. If the church doesn’t wake up soon and let Christ once again influence it, it will become more irrelevant than it already is.  Christ warns us to come out of the worlds influence.

    babylon”I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues” Rev. 18:4

    By forbearance a ruler may be persuaded, And a soft tongue breaks the bone. Prov. 25:15

    But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to put Jesus to death. Mat. 27:20

    “And the master said to the slave, ‘Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel {them} to come in, so that my house may be filled. Lk. 14:23

    And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a large number of the God-fearing Greeks and a number of the leading women. Acts 17:4

    “You see and hear that not only in Ephesus, but in almost all of Asia, this Paul has persuaded and turned away a considerable number of people, saying that gods made with hands are no gods {at all.} Acts 19:26

    But the centurion was more persuaded by the pilot and the captain of the ship than by what was being said by Paul. Acts 27:11

    Some were being persuaded by the things spoken, but others would not believe. Acts 28:24

    But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas in the presence of all, “If you, being a Jew, live like the Gentiles and not like the Jews, how {is it that} you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews? Gal. 2:14

    Those who desire to make a good showing in the flesh try to compel you to be circumcised, simply so that they will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. Gal. 6:12

    World Influence:

    God clearly tells us in the bible not to allow the things of the world to shape our beliefs and stain us. The word conformed means to “conform one’s self to another’s pattern.” This is done by allowing the other pattern to influence our mind and character instead of God.

    The world influence blinds a person from seeing the light of the gospel and making friendship with the world is an act of hostility toward God.

    media“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Rom. 12:2

    “in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Cor. 4:4

    “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.” Eph. 2:1-3

    You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. James 4:4

    Influence to Cause to Stumble:

     “but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” Mat. 18:6

    Self-Influence:

    There’s no healing for bad behavior nor is there a prayer line in which you can get in that would possibly every remove bad behavior from you. It doesn’t exist.

    Jesus taught cut it out of your life! Paul said, “Stop sinning!” A good example of bad behavior is critical words, judgmental attitudes, combativeness, lying, coarse jesting, jealousy, hatred, anger, strife, dissensions, envying, carousing and all manner of works of the flesh. These are all choices we make each day.

    Renew your mind to what the word of God says and cut off all bad behavior.

    “If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire, Mar. 9:43

    Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak {this} to your shame. 1 Cur. 15:34

    Social Influences:

    Social influence occurs when an individual’s thoughts or actions are affected by other people. Social influence takes many forms and can be seen in conformity, socialization, peer pressure, obedience, leadership, persuasion, sales, and marketing. Traits such as charisma, reputation(credibility), beauty, wealth, peer pressure, position such as a good job, a platform such as politician, movie star, star athlete, celebrities, status as well fame all can be used to exert social influence.
