OF MADMEN, MARTYRS, AND MAIDS/ PART 2

We all have a Bible, one we often take for granted. Humor me for a moment, if you will, close your eyes and picture a man tied to a stake surrounded by fodder and as a crowd looks on, now imagine him being strangled and set on fire, his last words spoken on this earth having been a prayer, that God would open the eyes of the King of England.
That is the price William Tyndale paid. He was fluent in eight languages and it was his soul desire to bring the true word of God to the smallest of the world.
Despite constant adversity and the destruction of his work, he carried on.
The last seventeen months of his life spent in prison diligently translating the Old Testament into English, a work which was completed by a friend after his death.

So much of the true roots of the church and sacrifices made by others to give us the freedom we have today have been all but forgotten.
Replaced by agendas of man-made doctrines, and denominational bickering over who is going to hell, because they hold a slightly different view. I’m still pretty, pretty sure that only God has the authority to make that judgment.

Picture again, if you will, a man driven to near madness after the murder of his wife, and  with his people enslaved to England he decided to lead a revolt against their oppressors.
Being quoted as once having said “Fight and you may die, run away and you will live at least for a while, and dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies, that they make take our lives but they will never take our freedom”
Picture this man tortured, disemboweled, and emasculated while still alive, his tormentors repeatedly offering him a quick death if he would renounce his acts.
Sir William Wallace would not. He died for his beliefs and because of his thirst for freedom and his love for his people he endured.
Just as Jesus tells us in Matthew 10:22 “Ye shall be hated of all men for my names sake: but he that endureth to the end shall  be saved.”
It is time for us to follow that burning in our souls. What is your hearts desire today? What group of people whose suffering brings tears to your eyes and breaks your heart?
What is the still small voice of the Lord prompting you to do?
The world will always smash your dreams, that is why you don’t look at the world. Some of the wisest words ever spoken were “Anything that is worth having is worth fighting for.”
What if Tyndale had just given up,  and said “Oh, well, sorry” and never translated another word or destroyed his own work.
What if Wallace had pledged allegiance to England and surrender a breath of God save the King?
We would be at the mercy of someone else concerning our salvation, we would be told only what they wanted us to believe.
Scotland would now be a distant memory, a land only visited in history books.
The sad reality is the “church” as it was created to be is also in danger of becoming a memory, a place to be visited in history books, well actually secular schools would never want to acknowledge churches existed, so maybe passed down through folklore.
It is time to stand up against false doctrines and blatant sin that has opened up shop under the guise of a “church”.
If we never breathe a word against injustice, whether it be human rights, animal rights, or the false doctrines hiding behind the misuse of the word Christian, we all become guilty by omission. Not to speak against it is as the same as condoning it.
Jeremiah could not stop that fire in him, you shouldn’t either, let it out, “If God be for you, who can be against you?”
And if they refuse to listen, take it as a compliment!
” For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall heap to themselves, teachers having itching ears (ones who tell them what they want to hear) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned into fables (believe lies) But WATCH thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”
                                  2 Timothy 4:3-5
God had us warned throughout the New testament that these days would come, the false teachers would come and the false prophets and at the time of Paul’s writings, he said they were already here! Imagine now.
Stand for the truth, let it be known, Let the lord lead you and guide you and stay in his word.
Share the truth and if it falls on deaf ears, don’t worry, you have done your job and while they are still here praying to their God of gumdrops and lollipops we will be at the biggest Jewish wedding the universe will ever know!

OF MADMEN, MARTYRS AND MAIDS/ PART1

Now that we are all awake, where’s the fire? Man, that’s a good question, especially when you consider scriptures such as “For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:29
“Who maketh his angels spirits and his ministers (servants) a flaming  fire.” Psalm 104:4
The fire Jesus refers to when he said “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.” Revelation 3:15,16
Lukewarm Christianity  is like lukewarm anything.
It is a spineless, gutless attempt to lay claim to a massive inheritance of untold worth while denying the very one it is handed down by.
That is why the Lord tells them without question that he knows their works, and he wants to give him their all or give him nothing but don’t try to play the middle.
Today we have become so worried about offending people and being politically correct, that we will choke back anything while the true church is ran into the ground.
The prophet Jeremiah also went through this in his time.

“For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the Lord was made a reproach unto me, and a derision daily, Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak anymore in his name. But his word was  in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing and could not stay.”
                                 Jeremiah 20:8,9
Jeremiah had absolutely the worst job in the Bible, he is often referred to as “the Prophet of doom”.
It was his job to proclaim the forthcoming judgment on his own people, the very people who instead of heeding his warnings would ridicule him, even to the point that he would have rather not have been born as to have to carry out this task.
But the fire of God and the holy calling on him, that had been placed on him before he had been formed in his mother’s womb, was so strong and burned so deep that it could not be contained and it prevailed.
God wants to use some people in these last days that are wiling to just let Him burn in them and do the work his has created them for.
People like Martin Luther who took on the entire church of his day, because a fellow named Tetzel had cooked up quite a money-making scheme,  enough money to help build Saint Peter’s Cathedral, by selling what he called “indulgences”.
A get out of purgatory free certificate, ( purgatory being the Catholics belief in pre-hell, a place we know does not exist, because the rich man in the story of Lazarus had lifted up his eyes in hell) Luther being disgusted and knowing for himself the truth of God nailed his understanding of that truth to the church door.
John Brown, who finally became so tired of the injustice done to the slaves that he started his own movement, which regrettably became violent, bloody and cost lives.
One of the last photos taken of him before his execution, tells all there is to tell, as a small, black child hugs him as they lead him away to his hanging.
When he had been asked how he justified what he had done, this was his reply “Upon the golden rule. I pity the poor in bondage that have none to help them, that is why I am here, not to gratify any personal animosity, revenge or vindictive spirit. It is my sympathy with the oppressed and wronged that are as good as you and are as precious in the sight of God.”
Luther suffered excommunication and the threat of death but took his cause forward.
Brown paid with his life, I am sure he never wanted to see any lives lost, but I am equally as sure that the hug he received before going to his death was worth it all because he knew he had lived for something other than himself.
Two very different men, both having a common fire, burning for truth, justice and to see others truly free. That fire could be contained. Nor should it today, pray for that fire.
If one voice can affect the entire world, what can we accomplish with our voices collectively speaking as one?

CARDIAC SHOCK (HEART SERIES PART 4)

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Love has grown cold as people go about their way worshiping the gods of self, money, and sin.
Never realizing that one watches from heaven and as the prayers of his saints comes before his throne, and his answer to indeed deliver those that are his and the innocents that  suffer at the hands of the ungodly, comes as the angels hurls the censer of fire from the holy altar to earth.
THE HEART BEAT AS OLD AS CREATION SUDDENLY GROWS SILENT.
Those that are his will be taken out of harm’s way because as the great physician, he has only one treatment option left to save this dying world.
CARDIAC SHOCK, to jump-start the hearts of those who have not believed, those who have laughed, mocked, and denied his name. Those who have given honor and sacrifice to devils and worshiped their idols of money, fame, and prestige and every idol their minds could conjure up.
The shock so powerful that it will leave the host of heaven silent on behalf of those who will be left on earth.
Silenced as they pray that repentance will come when those on earth are faced with the reality of him, and of his wrath as he offers one last chance of salvation.
Revelation 6:12,13: “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; and the stars of heaven fell into the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.”
                                    

THE MIGHTY EARTHQUAKE THAT WILL VIOLENTLY ROCK EARTH IN ORBIT IN UNISON WITH THE ANGER OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
The planet itself shaking as if to free itself from the inhabitants that have defiled it through their transgressions.

THE SUN IN ALL OF IT’S REFLECTIVE POWER NOW REFLECTS THE DARKNESS AND BLACKNESS OF THE HEARTS OF MEN.
THE MOON MIRRORING THE BLOOD OF ALL THE INNOCENTS THAT HAS SATURATED THE EARTH UNTIL IT CAN NO LONGER CONTAIN IT.
THE STARS THAT WERE HIGH AND LOFTY, NOW CRASH AND FALL TO EARTH AS THOSE THEY ARE MIGHTY ON EARTH SHALL FALL.

 

Revelation 7:14-16: “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places, and the kings of the earth and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bond man, and every free man HID THEMSELVES IN THE DENS, AND IN THE ROCKS OF THE MOUNTAINS;

AND SAID UNTO THE MOUNTAINS AND THE ROCKS FALL ON US, AND HIDE US FROM THE FACE OF HIM THAT SITTETH ON THE THRONE, AND FROM THE WRATH OF THE LAMB.
                                
The world as it stands, Romans 1:22:”Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” 

The “big bang” theory, evolution, Darwinism, a host of other imagined fables of the minds of men are now taught as the new truth. People can even argue that we have been to space, walked on the moon, sent rovers to distant planets and yet, he and his kingdom are simply not there.

Well, actually HE IS, he and his kingdom are located in what the Bible refers to as the third heaven, remember he created this separately. We will never be capable of travelling that far and I am sure he finds our attempts rather amusing.

Matthew 24:27:  “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” 

Luke 23:28-31 recounts his words as he was led to his crucifixion, and the women were weeping for him, “But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep NOT for me, BUT weep for yourselves, and for your children. For behold, THE DAYS ARE COMING, in which they shall say, Blessed ARE the barren, and the wombs that NEVER bare, and the paps which never gave suck.

Then shall they begin TO SAY TO THE MOUNTAINS, FALL ON US; AND TO THE HILLS, COVER US. For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?”

Translation, if they treated him this way considering the state of the world at the time, what will they do in a desensitized, demoralized time such as today? If people are willing to knock a persons brains out on Black Friday to BUY a ninety dollar television, what will they do to each other when absolute Hades breaks loose on earth?

They will soon watch with absolute horror as the sky actually opens up to reveal him and the host of heaven. 
And they WILL believe.  All who have scoffed and scoff now at the Gospel based on THEIR VERSION OF HIS REALITY will soon realize that HE IS SELF EXISTING, AND REFUSING TO “BELIEVE” IN HIM IS NOT GOING TO MAKE HIM GO AWAY.
Of course there will be those who will pray to their false gods and seek protective enchantments, like Pharaohs magicians tried when attempting to fight against Moses,they may just hear something quite like this:
Isaiah 47:12,13: “Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast labored since thy youth; IF SO BE THOU BE ABLE TO PROFIT, IF SO BE THOU MAYEST PREVAIL. thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, STAND UP AND SAVE THEE FROM THE THINGS THAT SHALL COME UPON THEE.”
                                     
They chose to trust in these things rather than him, and when this comes to pass they WILL understand how foolish that trust in dead idols and demons has been.
Then will come the SHOCK WAVE, but we’re not getting into that for a while!

FLAT LINED ( HEART SERIES PART 3)

“AND WHEN HE HAD OPENED THE SEVENTH SEAL, THERE WAS SILENCE  IN HEAVEN ABOUT THE SPACE OF A HALF HOUR.”  Revelation 8:1
There it is, the heart beat of earth and all we know it to be, will have just flat lined.
The host of heaven, have now become completely silent.
As is our custom on earth to observe a moment of silence on behalf of those who suffer great tragedy.
It is also my belief that they are praying for all upon earth, because our sin, our rebellion has finally reached into the heavens.
Just as they rejoice when one of us accepts the truth, and accepts Jesus.
I believe their hearts break for us and for the knowledge of what is about to take place and for respect to the dead, whose bodies will line earth from one end to the other.
Having a keen understanding of the price to be paid for deception, having suffered their own loss, when Lucifer
 deceived  one-third of their fellow servants and lead them in a revolt against the very one who created them, ensuring them a fate of eternal damnation.
They, who God has sent to us throughout the ages when we were in need, to protect us, encourage us, and often reassure us  not to be afraid, and to proclaim glad tidings of marvelous things.
And us, having entertained them unaware, to prove us of our kindness one to another.
They are in the realm of true reality and the watchers who see all that takes place on earth and make report of those things.
AND THEY ARE COMPLETELY SILENT FOR US.
“And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets, and another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. AND THE SMOKE OF THE INCENSE WHICH CAME WITH THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS, ASCENDED UP BEFORE GOD OUT OF THE ANGELS HAND. AND THE ANGEL TOOK THE CENSER, AND FILLED IT WITH FIRE OF THE ALTAR, AND CAST INTO THE EARTH: AND THERE WERE VOICES, AND THUNDERINGS, AND LIGHTNINGS, AND A EARTHQUAKE. AND THE SEVEN ANGELS WHICH HAD THE SEVEN TRUMPETS PREPARED THEMSELVES TO SOUND.”                     Revelation 8:2-6

The prayers of all saints, saints of every nation, every kindred, every tongue, never having even met in this world, but our prayers, as incense, the cries of our souls meeting and becoming as one in the spirit realm, spiraling ever upward, coming into complete agreement of one mind one accord with the angel, who gives his consent in conceding that there is nothing left that even they, the host of heaven can do on behalf of those on earth, offering his incense and our prayers in complete unison, surrendering to the knowledge that earth can no longer bear the weight of the sin it has become laden with.
“DELIVER US FROM EVIL” the cries of all the oppressed, the hurt, the wounded.
The cry from his saints on behalf of those subjected to injustice and atrocities and those who are unable to cry for themselves.
The knowledge as with childbirth filling their hearts that without the birth, those labor pains will only get worse.
Many mothers have died during that agony, as the spiritual deaths of the innocents, their love and goodness beaten out of them by the evil of this present world.
John, himself privileged to behold and prophesy all these forthcoming events, his final word on the subject, “Even, so, come, Lord Jesus.”
“Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.” cried as the angel fills the censer with fire from the altar, being symbolic of the judgment of God, hurling it to earth……
And as with all flat lines, the only treatment option that will be left is cardiac shock…….
