Gathering Together Making Beautiful Music

Gathering Together Making Beautiful Music

Dream: 1/5/2015

I was abruptly awakened at 4:44 A.M. today. Whether this dream occurred before or after I was awakened, I am not sure since I did eventually fell asleep again. While in quiet time, I almost did not journal the dream but thought better of it. I needed to understand its meaning.

IMG_1744I was in a room with some children at the back of a house. The room had its own outside door access and it was open revealing the screen door. The light from the sun was shining in brightly. I looked and saw a small group of church people coming up to knock on the door to witness to us. An elderly gray-headed woman led them. I knew her by name and thought the group was from the Pentecostal or Assembly of God church. I opened the screen door slightly and started to tell them I did not have time. I closed the screen door and turned to the kids and they were just sitting there staring at me nothing to do. I immediately turned and opened the screen door and asked the gray-haired woman if the group would come in and sing to us.

The group came in and went next door the church the kids were a part of and gathered up instruments from the stage and began playing as they walked up the stairs, out the entrance to the parking lot and back into the room where the children were. One of the young men rocked it out on the guitar as he sang incredibly. We were all amazed at the music and singing the people made. I then saw a group of men I knew from another church in the community come into the room. I had seen them before but never had become acquainted with them. I met each one by one and as we visited together, we really felt a barrier lifted between us. Everyone was enjoyied the music, fellowship and being gathered together as we listened to the beautiful music.

End-

Meaning:

The children were lifeless and bored just sitting in a church class. The room had its own access through the door, which was illuminated by the bright sunlight. The elderly gray-headed woman represents Holy Spirit. They came not to speak of doctrine but to bring fellowship by the Spirit of God. I did not want to hear another group sharing their church doctrine, which reinforces the barriers, which have been built up by all the different denominations. I just wanted to hear music. When they began to play music and sing the gathering entered into harmonious fellowship by the Spirit. The music and the joy of the gathering attracted more and more people. All we had to do was open the door to the Spirit. Doctrine no longer mattered. In Ephesians, 2:18 states, “for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father”. Apostle Paul clearly stated, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling”. Ephesians 4:4 If we could be revived and united by doctrine then that would have occurred many centuries ago. Doctrine will never unite the people of God but the Spirit of God active and alive in our lives and fellowship sure will.

October 18, 2014 I was given a dream, which showed how the body of believers would work in harmony as one team among multiple teams without interfering with one another. It will be a beautiful thing. Please read Harmony Like Joel’s Army http://seerofgod.com/harmony-like-joels-army/ Don’t be fooled by the false harmony which is being orchestrated by the current Pope creating a one world relegion by merging religions into one.

You can begin today! You do not have to wait! Each one of us can invite Holy Spirit back into our lives, surrender to the true Lord ship of Jesus Christ and flow in His Spirit. It is Christ’s will for the body of believer to walk as one in the Spirit in fullness and fellowship together.

May we harmonize and make beautiful music in the Spirit of the Lord together. May we drop the pretense that doctrine will accomplish the desires of our Lord. May we have the courage to allow the Father to reveal anything in our hearts that prevents fellowship with fellow believers, and may our love for one another be a witness to a lost and dying world.

Amen.

It’s a brand new year. Do not procrastinate. Make it you aim. Run the race to win. 1 Cor. 9:26-27.

  • Wedding of the Faith to Universalism – One World Religion

    Wedding of the Faith to Universalism – One World Religion

    • Wedding of the faith to universalism – one world religion is the process of dissolving Christianity into a universal one-world religion where Christ no longer has significance as the only way to God.

    It was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Th. 2:14

    My dear Son in Law, Chris Huggins sent me a dream about a wedding for interpretation, which he had a dream on May 13, 2014. I found the meaning of the dream to be very significant and revealing of what is going on in the Spirit, and he and I wanted to share it with you. It is a warning dream of what the spirit of darkness is doing among the fellowship of believers today. Take heed and always humbly seek the Truth from God and do not rely solely on man.

    wedding of universalismIn the dream, I was getting ready for a wedding ceremony that I was the groom in. The bride’s family had money and they had rented an elaborate space for the wedding. It was not a church just a large empty building, but decorated. It resembled an old Wal-Mart building. I never saw the bride’s face and did not know her identity. Everyone in the wedding would be wearing very fancy clothes and I did not have anything to wear that would be as nice. This concerned me greatly. Then I was standing in my brother’s room and my brother was picking out the best clothes that he himself owned for me to wear. They were very nice clothes but it still felt second rate compared to what everyone else was wearing. The time for the ceremony came and I walked down the aisle with the bride. As we got to the front, the people sat and the ceremony began. A voice from an unseen man said “And now the man of God will speak”. As I turned, I looked back down the aisle where a Muslim man was down on his hands and knees, praying a Muslim prayer. As I turned and looked behind the pulpit were two Indian men and one Buddhist man standing there with their hands together in prayer as they chanted along with the Muslim man. As I looked around the room, I could not find anything, which resembled Christianity or Christians.

    Meaning of Chris’s dream

    The dream reveals that spiritual darkness is at work deceiving many religious people into believing that we all should unite under the same God in one world religion.

    The Groom

    The groom represents the view of Christ observing the bride and the bridal party before the wedding.

    Building

     The bride’s family had money. The wedding, held in a mega-business, represented by what looked like an old Wal-mart building. Wal-mart is the largest retailer in the world today and rightly called a mega-business. The churches today are businesses and the mega-churches are truly mega-businesses. A building is not the church in the New Testament, nor is it the house of God. God does not dwell in a building but His temple is within a believer’s heart. The Greek word for church is Strong’s GK: 1577 ekkl?sia, which means: “called out or forth, an assembly”. The word church does not mean a structure like a building, but “called out ones” unto Christ. Individually and collectively we make up the assembly of the most high wherever we may assemble wither it is in a home, marketplace or a structure. God knows those who truly make up the assembly and those who do not.

    Bride Not Identified

     The groom did not recognize or know the bride. Her face was hidden which made her unrecognizable. Still today, in some world cultures, a third party, rather than the young couple arrange the marriage. The bride and groom have never met prior to the wedding. In Christianity, it is Holy Spirit’s assignment to teach the bride everything about the groom so when they come together they know each other. The eastern Jewish wedding ceremony is a beautiful picture of the preparation and readiness of the bride for her groom. With Jesus, it is about spending time with Him in an intimate loving relationship.

    Attire

     The people’s fine clothes represent their riches, fine works, and self-righteousness. They loved attending the wedding in their finery, appearing attractive, successful and appealing, in order to impress the groom.

    Paul wrote of the disparity of following Christ to the assembly a Corinth: “You are already filled, you have already become rich, you have become kings without us; and indeed, I wish that you had become kings so that we also might reign with you”. 1 Cor. 4:8

    “Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.” Rev. 16:15 *Note: This verse is after the six bowls of wrath in Revelation 16: 1-14 has been poured out upon the earth and next Armageddon is about to commence.

    Brothers’ Room

    The groom found himself in his brothers’ room being dressed in nice close but still not as nice as the people attending the wedding. The brother represents a brother from another religion such as Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism dressing Jesus in their clothes to dissolve Jesus’ deity into a one-world religion under the false prophet.

    “For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away”. Is. 64:6

    “THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE;” Rom. 3:10

    The Wedding

    the bride unreconginzed The wedding ceremony began when a voice from an unseen man said “And now the man of God will speak”, but instead of seeing a preacher, the groom saw a Muslim man bowed and praying. Then the groomed looked behind the pulpit saw two Indian men (Hindus) and a Buddhist man praying. The groom could not recognize anything Christian about the ceremony. The wedding represents the wedding of Christianity into the other world religions under one god.

    Today, many mega-churches are quickly getting onboard with the movement referred to as “Chrislam” which is a form Universalism”. Chrislam is a message that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. Recently, Pope Francis sent a personal video message to Ken Copeland’s conference where the Pope declared all believers are Catholic. Pope Francis close priest friend and Anglican Episcopal Bishop “Tony Palmer” spoke at the meeting and declared Luther’s protest to be over and that if you are born again you are Catholic, in other words…under the Pope’s authority. Ken Copeland, the leader of the Charismatic denomination encouraged ecumenical unity with Catholicism in the name of unity of believers.

    This dream reveals that Hindu and Buddhist religions will be married in as well to create a universal “One World” religion (Universalism) under the beast and false prophet.

    “No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” 2 Cor. 11:13-15

    Universalism

    Universalism is the doctrine of eventual well-being of every person and because we are all by nature beings of God then regardless we all serve the same God. Universalism has a pagan and Christian structure. The reason the groom did not recognize anything Christian in the wedding was because the doctrine of universalism is counter to the message of Christ. No believer with understanding of Christ’s complete work would ever accept universalism much less preach it.

    “One Lord, one faith, one baptism. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 4:5-6

    Unseen Man Spoke

    In the dream, the unseen man spoke, “And now the man of God will speak”. Satan is the unseen man working behind the scenes to seduce people, especially believer in Christ to merge into a one-world religion. I do not remember who gave the prophecy some years ago about the great deception to come where those who had long preached truthful messages in their ministry will introduce controversial doctrine not found in the scriptures. At first people, which followed these ministries heard the strange doctrines questioned it, but reasoned that since the preacher had spoken truths in the past this must be true as well.

    The TV ministers of the mega-churches, TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Ken Copeland, Brian Houston, and Rick Warren messages of a late have spoke the world religions uniting to worship under the same God. Some ministers publically say that Christ is not the sole way to get to God. This is heresy! This is happening now! Please do not just take my word for it, research it for yourself.

    “For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 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, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.” 2 Th. 2:7-12

    Jesus spoke of a parable of the banquet where people were invited to the wedding feast of the Lord.

    Mat 22: 11-13
    “But the King came in to look over the dinner guest, 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.’

    Matthew 7:15-20

    15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, you will know them by their fruits.

    Matthew 7:21-23

    21 “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. 22 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?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

    Revelation 13 & Daniel 11: 36-39

    22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying, 2 “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. 3 And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come. 4 Again he sent out other slaves saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast.”’ 5 But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, 6 and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them. 7 But the king was enraged, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their city on fire. 8 Then he *said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9 Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.’ 10 Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests. 11 “But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, 12 and he *said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?’ And the man was speechless. 13 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.’ 14 For many are called, few are chosen.”



  • 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.

    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

     

     

     



  • 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



  • Agents of Change -True Spiritual Warfare

    shipA few years ago my wife and I arrived in Galveston to set sail for a fabulous week on a western Caribbean cruise. My wife owns a cruise travel business so we have cruised and inspected these beautiful ships many times. One thing that is apparent from the concept, design and implementation of a cruise ship is that its sole purpose is for fun, for relaxation and for adventure. These are some of the reasons people sail on-board them by the millions each year.

    However, on one particular voyage, things didn’t go exactly as planned. We arrived in Galveston around noon on embarkation day only to find that the ship we were to be boarding shortly wasn’t back in port. What could possibly keep one of these mega-machines from being on time? The weather was perfect and the skies were clear with no strong winds blowing.

     We began to hear rumors that the night before the ships’ return, someone had jumped over board and the ship had spent about four hours in a search and rescue effort trying to recover the individual. All efforts to find them failed and the ship finally returned to port.

    We were upset at first for the inconvenience of the delay since it causes such chaos to the already hectic process of getting everyone off the ship with their luggage, clearing out the parking lots so the arriving guest can be accommodated with out delay.  Eventually, late that evening we set sail in the dark of the evening and we are now on our adventure.

    The next day was a full day at sea.  As my wife and I were walking the Lido deck of the ship, I couldn’t help but think about the young man who had jumped off the ship committing suicide the night before. I told my wife, “This ship was made for fun and the company that owns the cruse ship calls their fleet ‘The Fun Ships.’”

     What had happened was wrong! James 1:17 says, “Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.” This cruise ship’s concept, design and sole purpose was a good thing bestowed by God through mankind! The inspiration behind it was for pleasure and fun.

    The more I thought about this senseless death and the purpose of this beautiful ship, the angrier I became at the devils evil in the Earth. Something had to be done and I was going to do it. I told my wife what was troubling me and that we were going to declare what God’s purpose was for the ship and drive the evil spirit of suicide from the ship.

     We began to walk the deck speaking against the spirit of suicide commanding it to leave the ship and stated that it can’t return. We spent some time at this and then went about our cruise fun. A little bit later, I told my wife, “We’re not finished, we have to go back up on the Lido deck and speak against the spirit of suicide again.”

    rail_satan1Once again we walked on deck quietly declaring what this ship was created for and that suicide had no place here and had to go. After some time in prayer I felt a release and that we had accomplished what we as Christians are to do.

    That same night the Lord gave me a dream. In the dream I saw my wife and I walking the deck of the ship praying and speaking against the spirit of suicide. As we stood on deck near an air vent pipe, which rose above the deck about two feet, a snake as large as any anaconda on Earth came up out of the air vent and wrapped around my legs in a hideous effort to intimidate and to stay on board. In the dream, I told it to get off the ship and leave now! The snake unwrapped from my legs and darted back down the air vent pipe disappearing from sight. We continued to stand there and pray commanding it to leave. Suddenly the snake burst forth from the pipe and slithered over to the side of the ship and disappeared for good. We had won the battle and rejoiced greatly.

    When we awoke the next morning, I told my wife about the dream and how it revealed that the first time we went on deck and prayed the spirit of suicide didn’t leave the ship but only went in hiding. However, when Holy Spirit unctioned us to go back and pray again then the spirit of suicide left the ship.

    We rejoiced and to this day no one has committed suicide from that particular ship albeit they have from other ships in the cruise industry. How many lives have been spared due to this righteous act of faith and obedience to the Lord?

    Dear saints of God, we must recognize and engage the forces of evil with our faith. Just take the time to look at any situation and see if there is a problem and if it is contrary to the plan and purposes of God. If so, declare what God’s Word says about it and release His will into the situation.

    To better understand this subject please read the article “Release My Word Release My Word «” and “Speak My Word God Is Waiting For You to Speak His Word «

    In the book of Acts, chapter 26:18, Paul tells of the commission he received from the Lord Jesus, which is to “open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, in order that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.”

    sword_wordAs Christians we are to be impacting the world around us, where we live, where we work and yes, even where we travel. God has used me often to directly confront evil forces face-to-face and drive evil influences from the work place, from our neighborhood, the city where I reside and from where I travel, for we have been given dominion in this Earth over evil.

    I want to inject that in no way are the cruise lines at fault when someone listens to the evil seducing voice of suicide and jumps overboard. If there is any fault it would be on us…the Christians, who lack knowledge of spiritual matters and allow such evil in our presence. We must recognize that we are a royal priesthood and our commission from Christ is to become agents of change in our time while on the Earth.  In 1 Peter 2:9 Christians are a royal priesthood proclaiming the excellencies of Jesus to the world. 

    In conclusion it is vitally important to recognize the original purpose bestowed by the intent and gifts of God for all the things that surround our lives to see if each one of them is functioning according to His purpose. If not, we are to speak God’s word to the problem until we see the matter align back to God’s purpose. This includes our homes, our neighborhoods, our workplaces, our schools, our courts, our governments and the nations.

    We’re not to be railing against powers, rulers and authorities in the heavens and calling them down. That doesn’t scare or intimidate them in any way. What evil is most afraid of is the saint who grows in the glory of the Lord and the manifold wisdom of God demonstrating to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places the power and authority of each Christian to bring the light into darkness exposing the evil of the devil’s kingdom. That is the church’s assignment and purpose according to Eph 3: 10 “so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly {places.}”

    Be dynamic in your faith and become and agent of change!!!

    Scripture References:

    Dan. 2:2 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.

    Mat. 4:16 “THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT, AND THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM A LIGHT DAWNED.”

    JN 8:12 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.”

    Rom. 2:9 and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,

    Rom. 13:12 The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

    1 cor. 4:5 Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, {but wait} until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of {men’s} hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.

    2 Cor. 4:6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

    Eph. 5:8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light

    1 Thes. 5:5  for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness;

    1 Pet. 2:9 “But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR {God’s} OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;” 



  • Expectancy

    “He will meet us at our level of expectation!”

    “What God wants to do and what God can do are two different things.”

    “If we raise our level of expectancy concerning any matter, God will not disappoint us. In fact He will exceed our level of expectancy above and beyond what we could think or hope for so He can stretch us to an even higher level of faith in Him.”

    I once heard Him say in His authoritative voice, “My people limit Me!”

    Scripture Ref:
    Phil. 1:18-20 Yes, and I will rejoice for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but {that} with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

    Heb. 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    We first must perceive (discern) with our spiritual eyes or spiritual senses that in the Spirit of Christ, provision (supply) has been made which encapsulates our earnest expectation and hope that we will not be put to shame in anything.

    I heard Andrew Womack say that years ago he received a request from a mother to come and pray for her daughter who was suffering from a painful and debilitating illness. When he arrived he explained that Jesus has already healed us and that she could have her healing now. Her faith rose and he prayed for her and she was instantly healed. He heard the Father say something like, “The reason I couldn’t heal her any faster was that she believed that her healing would come slowly over a long period of years”. The young lady was limiting God by her expectation.

    God wants to do more so let’s raise our level of expectancy higher than ever and see signs and wonders like never before!
