BELIEVE A LIE…. Part 2/ GOD? WHAT GOD?

Original post: 07/25/2014 FOWC/ AVENUE
The world has a saying, “if you want help, you must be willing to admit that you have a problem.”
This world has bad problems and before I can give you good news, I first must show you the problems.
Before we go any farther down the road forewarning of things to come on this apocalyptic journey, what to expect and how to survive.
For my own peace of mind, I want to say to anyone who asks how can I say these things, how can I not?
I am not anti-American, or anti-anyone, I love people, I love my country and I did not wake up one morning and think to myself, “Hey, I sure would love to proclaim doom, death, and destruction over earth, wouldn’t that be fun?”
I am cut by the same sword that I weld.
I am doing what I have been called to do, I am a messenger, trumpet, mouthpiece, have your choice, it is the same job and as a trumpet if I see danger and fail to sound I am accountable.
As a messenger, if I do not share that message I am accountable and all watchmen are responsible for the blood of those they failed to warn.
We will be standing in judgment covered in the blood of those we failed and I am sure we will get to behold the destruction that may have been prevented had our jobs been done.
How could anyone profess to have love and not do that job?
And that is all that will ever be said about that subject.
On to Babylon, how does a nation fall so far from being blessed of the Lord to an absolute stench in his nostrils?
Again to reiterate, it is the blood, just as the blood of Abel cried out from the earth, God continually warned the Hebrews to not let the earth become polluted with blood and the stoning of people proved just how serious he was about that.
He says what he means and he means what he says.
That is why we pray for the healing of our land.
It really is irrelevant whether we are physically who polluted it, but rather that we acknowledge it and ask for forgiveness for the atrocities committed here.
Just as Job offered sacrifice for his family for forgiveness of the sins they may have committed.
From the beginning of the Bible:
Genesis 6:11-13 ” The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted his way upon earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence THROUGH THEM; And I WILL destroy them with earth.”
End of the Bible:
Revelation 19:2.3 “For true and righteous are HIS judgments; for HE hath judged the great harlot, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and he hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand, and again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke went up for ever and ever.”
And all the Bible in between, warnings, judgments, and what all people, all nations must do to be saved.
Deuteronomy 8:11, 16-20 ” BEWARE that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statues which I command thee this day;
Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and he might prove thee, to do good at thy latter end; and thou say in thine heart, MY power and the might of MINE hand have gotten me this wealth. But thou shall shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto the fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them and worship them, I TESTIFY AGAINST YOU THIS DAY THAT YE SHALL PERSIH.
As the nations which the Lord destroyed before your face, so shall you perish; because you would not be obedient to the voice of your Lord your God.”
We have believed that WE made OURSELVES the great nation we once were.
We have bought the arrogant lies that OUR might and power have allowed us to control our destinies and that WE are just too great to fall.
In truth, only “a fool says in his heart, there is no God”.
We are trained from birth to have pride and believe all is beautiful and bright, the truth is we are no longer pilgrims, we have forgotten honor, kindness and true brotherly love.
There is nothing loving about a false sense of tolerance that leaves souls open to condemnation in hell.
Next time, Becoming Babylon.

BELIEVE A LIE AND BE…… Part 1

Original post: 07/18/2014/ FOWC/ Avenue
Before we continue dealing with that heart condition (Cardiac Shock), we have to stop and take a look down the road of mass deception and deal with some rather blasphemous boulders.
I give credit where credit is due, my BF Genia turned me onto these several years ago.
I am somewhat of a “Brown Recluse” and live a pretty secluded life and had completely missed this somewhere along the way.
But if you are not familiar with these monumental monstrosities, you will be as shocked as I was to learn about them.
The Georgia Guide Stones.
It is the counterfeit rules in opposition to the Ten Commandments of God, that I believe are very similar to the rules that’s will be instated by the Anti-Christ once he comes into power over the nations.
Many old timers used to believe that it would be a near impossibility for a one world order to come into power, especially considering that America had always been a God fearing, strong, and powerful nation who never backed down from enemies.
Times change, and it is clear to see where these changes have led us.
Not only is he coming into power, it is closer than anyone would want to believe.
The mass population for sometime now have been slowly and methodically groomed into sedation.
I am reminded of Delilah stroking the head of the mighty Samson to lull him to sleep, so that he then could be handed over to his enemies for slaughter, completely unaware of the tragedy about to befall him.
In the spirit world, Satan sits with the majority of the blinded world cradled in his lap stroking their heads in false adoration and comfort, whispering his lies, filling their minds with his twisted version of “love”, “peace”, and “fairness” because they all seek that affirmation that their self righteousness is a good thing and the perceived reassurance that no judgment will come.
“Through peace, (rather the false promise of it) he will destroy many.”
He will promise global prosperity, fairness, and “justice” for all.
He will promise to provide a tolerant, peace loving world for all to just enjoy being “who they were created to be” with out fear or rejection”.
And now about “that ocean front property” he is selling, he will also have the complete backing of all the sheer power of hell, and with that he will be so charismatic and charming that the whole world will fall at his feet and hail him as their king.
His plans for world peace will sound so good that it will be music to the ears of those already slated to pledge allegiance to him and receive the mark of his name and many will gladly accept it.
As Nebuchadnezzar and his golden image, they will be expected to worship him and his image.
We know our Commandments given from god to honour him and for our good and well being.
1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
4. Remember the Sabbath day, Keep it holy.
5. Homour thy Father and thy Mother.
6.Thou shalt not kill.
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8. Thou shalt not steal.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness.
10.Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods.
Now for the counterfeit, which was constructed around 1980 at the request of a person using the pseudonym, RC Christian (so please would mistakenly believe this had some tie to Christianity) located in Elbert county, Georgia (like everything else, right under your nose, in your backyard, hidden in plain sight) ten rules in numerical order, carved on five huge granite stones, nineteen feet tall and written in several languages,, constructed to allow for astrological oddities (occultism).
You will just have to web search it to really get the full magnitude and spiritual implications of this thing.
Here is the main ideal of each one, they will not be numbered, nor will I quote them verbatim.
Keep world population at 500,000,000.
Control reproduction, no reproduction of the “poor”.
One world language.
NO faith, NO traditions, allowed, ONLY realism.
No petty laws or “useless” officials.
ONE WORLD COURT SYSTEM.
Personal rights less important than social duties.
“Harmony” with the infinite.
Do not harm earth. ( mother earth)
Is it just me or does all this sound a wee bit Hilter-ish?
2nd Thessalonians 2:9-12 “Even him, whose coming IS after the working of Satan with all power, and signs, and lying wonders, And all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. AND FOR THIS CAUSE (REASON) GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELIOUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE: THAT THEY MIGHT ALL BE DAMNED (CONDEMNED) WHO BELIEVE NOT THE TRUTH, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.”
Unraveling it all next time!

"HOOK, LINE, AND EASILY SUNK"

Fishing, a beloved pastime and as we know very close to the heart of Jesus, as he called fishermen and changed them from fisher-men to fishers- of- men.
But you know in the grand realm of things, satan loves to try to copy everything God does and pervert it and twist it to his advantage.
So if you are not saved and still fooling around, treating the offer of salvation like it will always be there for the taking, like so many love to say, “I’ll get saved when I’m ready” or “I’ll go to church when I’m ready” or my favorite ” I’ll go when God calls me again” you are falling into the category of prodigal or just stubborn, and I have some news for you.
 God is not the only one fishing for you!
As long as your out lying around in sin playing footsies with the devil, HE IS FISHING FOR YOU TOO!
To worsen the matter, if you believe in God, you KNOW this!
The devil is NOT your friend, he will NEVER be your friend, so why on earth do you want to be his fishing buddy?
You may like cooking up all that sin, the sex, the drinking, the drugs, whatever your vice is.
 He is helping catch that for you and helping it all go your way, but what you don’t realize is he is HOOKING YOU, he has that hook in your mouth and every single time you turn your back on the voice of God and all the voices he sends to try to lead you back to dry land, the enemy is leading you deeper and deeper, farther and farther into that water and I promise you THAT is where he wants you, he is LEADING YOU TO THE PLACE OF YOUR DESTRUCTION.
He will work your life to look so picture perfect, feeling so good, because it is his plan, not God’s.
That why there is “pleasure in sin for a season” you think you can play with him, he is playing with you and “the wages of sin is DEATH”.
And if you keep playing games, I promise you, your gonna lose, keep running down “the path of destruction” at one hundred miles an hour, and if you keep running from God, he may just not pick up when you do crash.
God is not obligated to watch over you, it does not matter who your Mama is or your Papaw was, at the end of the day, you are responsible for your own actions and to “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”.
The reason you keep hearing it (whether you want to or not) is because he loves YOU and wants to save you and he shed his blood for you and HE wants you on the path he has chosen, not to be running head first into the trap of the devil!
That fishing buddy is going to turn on you and you may just wish to God you had never even been born, it can get that bad and no matter what white fluffy cloud your on today, tomorrow it may just turn deathly black.
There is no middle ground, there is no gray.
There is God, there is the devil, and then there is you and a very wise man once told me of these three the hardest to ever deal with is you.
God IS on your side, the devil wants to destroy you but if you are saved God will not allow it but you are the one with freewill and it is your own spirit that must overcome.
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation;“… Hebrews 2:3(a)
To “know to do good and do it not, is a sin to us” so if we constantly come up with all these reasons why we can’t do what we are supposed to do then we only deceive ourselves.
One of the wisest men in the entire Bible was the tax collector whom Jesus spoke of saying that he wouldn’t even raise his eyes toward heaven but asked only that God have mercy on him.
If you know this and you know all these things and are tired of hearing about it, I want to ask you to please, please hear this, I write this stuff, as I said before because I know this stuff.
God used tragedy that the enemy sent to get through to save me and I had to go deep into the dark that I couldn’t even see to find the light.
I had been fishing with the devil and I know the price of that trip and I never ever want anyone to pay that, because you can’t, only God can, and I can give you proof positive that satan had written my death warrant, ready to be executed, and had it not been for undisputable divine intervention that in a few days my family would have been mourning the anniversary of my death and I would have died unsaved, yet knowing God is real and having refused to let him fix all the broken things in me that had made that trip so appealing.
But in his mercy, I now thank him every year for one more year for the life I should not have and for mercy I never deserved and I live with scars, scars so painful and so deep because of events that took place that can never ever be changed.
Because if you think your life only effects you, your delusional and need to think again.
Your disobedience and refusal to listen to God can cost someone else and that, I promise, you will live with for the rest of your life.
So really, really look at that bait as it dangles off that hook and ask yourself what is the worst that can happen, and then you’d better be ready for far worse than your worse nightmare, because your fishing buddy already knows that too.
Change your fishing buddy, before it’s too late.

MERGE

* Original post date:01/27/2014*
“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage supper of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.”
                            Revelation 19:7
The striking aspect of the verse is this, SHE made herself ready, the groom did not come and do it for her, she had complete discretion as to HOW she would present herself before him.
The question begs asked, how should we, the collective church of Christ prepare to present ourselves before our soon coming King?
And considering the bride price that he has already paid in his own blood, what could we ever ask as a wedding gift?
Let’s look at two ladies, both with the exact same opportunity with the exact same King, but with two very different outcomes to their stories.

The book of Esther chapter one tells the story of beautiful, beautiful Queen Vashti, she had been GIVEN EVERYTHING, riches, power, and her own place of feasting and banquets in the house of the King.
But with this great beauty, wealth, and power came a really big attitude and trusting in her beauty and her position, she made a tragic mistake that would in effect COST HER THE KINGDOM.
When King Ahasuerus called her to join his party and welcome his guests, she scoffed at his invitation and responded with a big “Vasthi-tude”
Which is reflected in the church of Laodiceans, (the lukewarm church) that the Lord refers to here:
Revelation 3:14-18 : “BECAUSE thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked.”
Comparing her to the Mother of it all, Queen Babylon. 
Revelation 18:8 “How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she hath said in her heart, I SIT A QUEEN, AND AM NO WIDOW, and shall see no sorrow.”
You can clearly read and understand that by her statement that she “sits a Queen” that she is the wife of a King.
Her statement “Am no widow” showing that she is in fact mocking her husband and bragging that his is very much alive and well.
Just as with Queen Vashti, no King could ever condone this kind of disrespect and complete contempt.
Vashti would soon find herself without a Kingdom, without a throne, and most certainly without a husband.
Esther chapter two tells us of a young, orphan girl.
Very humble whom had been chosen as one of those who would be presented before the King.
As part of the agreement, she could ask for whatever she wanted or needed to help prepare for this meeting.

To prepare she purified herself for a year, six months of which she bathed in myrrh (symbolic of dying to her flesh), “leaning not unto her own understanding” she chose to be advised and through divine intervention and her willingness to humble herself and submission, she soon indeed become Queen.
Esther 2:17 “And the King loved Esther above all women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so her set the royal crown upon her head, and made her Queen instead of Vashti.”
It goes on tell the amazing story of how God used the position he had placed her and her willingness to submit to this position, to save all her people from the sword of the enemy.
Now to get back to the Bride to end all Brides.
Revelation 22:17: And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely.”
This HAS to come and WILL ONLY come as a complete surrender by the church, (individuals, one mind-set, one purpose) into such a submission into the Spirit of God, that we will no longer know where we end and he begins.
THIS VOICE is spoken in complete unison.
This requires both parties on such a level that it is the true, holy merging between the church and Jesus.
I believe with everything in me that is what he wants.
A Bride, as scripture states “that will not grieve his Holy Spirit”.
A Bride whose mercy, compassion, humility, and love mirror his and is a complete reflection of him.
A Bride who will not be like Vashti, who refused to welcome or “waste her time” with HIS guests.
( We do this through our nasty little holier than thou attitudes) but a bride like Esther, who when offered anything, even to half the Kingdom, she chose, not for herself BUT the lives of her people.

Maybe we will be offered such, and we can ask for this half  of the Kingdom:
THOSE WHO ARE NOT SAVED AND READY TO FALL UNDER THE ABSOLUTE UNBRIDLED WRATH OF THE LAMB.

Be ready, strive through closet prayer, communion, and seeking his face above all.
Welcome HIS guests as HE invites them and welcome them without judgment and malice, and with forgiveness, and forgetfulness (as to their past sins) JUST AS HE HAS WELCOMED US.

 

POST NOTE: This is an older one, but I feel it needs revisited, our purpose is not to fear these things which are happening in our world but to be certain that our “wedding garments” of his righteousness are pressed and spotless, as the wedding feast of the Lamb approaches.

We are now in the last day outpouring, (yes, this did indeed start with the disciples, but the end time harvest is yet to be completed) as you feel the move of the Spirit, give yourself to Him, and let him have His work in you.

This song is one of my all time favorites and if you listen closely, there are TWO voices, she starts, his voice joins in and after just a moment you can not differentiate between the two, blended in complete UNISON. That is what HE wants for his church!

ANCIENT, BUT NOT ALIEN / The deception

Sometimes it is just funny, the forest and the trees.
How people can fail to see what is actually right in front of their eyes.
Guess that is where spiritual blindness and human arrogance comes into play.
Some are starting to lightly hit on this subject and get people used to ideal.
But I don’t want to hit it lightly, I want to take a hammer to it.
The “best defense is a good offense” and before getting farther into the judgments, you have to realize that Satan, and the world have already prepped our minds to accept their version of reality.
“Ancient Aliens” shown on the History channel is a prime example, No, I don’t watch it but I have caught bits and pieces, because God has a way of keeping me up on events, even if it’s sometimes things I’d rather not know, such as immense cruelty and oppression, but it just makes me pray “Thy Kingdom Come” that much more earnestly.
I do want to see his Kingdom come and I truly, truly live for the day that Jesus reigns on this earth and his foes are his footstools and the forces of Hell bow at his feet.
Over the past few decades there has been a steady indoctrination of alien culture and this particular show has began to incorporate the belief that God may just be alien, and even hypothesizing that the Holy challis may have contained a homing device!
WOW!
This will make it mighty easy for them to explain away the last day movement of the Holy Spirit which will be far greater than anyone could have ever, ever have imagined, with miracles, healings, and movements so amazing as to convert those who are to be saved.
 The signs and wonders, the miracles that are for THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIVE, to prove out the existence of God. ( The movement, which I believe for other reasons will come under mass persecution with an attempt to forbid it, which again is quite comical because NO ONE STOPS GOD!)
And once the rapture takes place it will be all conveniently explained away as an alien abduction of billions plus people.
And once this takes place the appearing of the Son of Man will be equated to an invasion.
I am not alone in this thought, and have held it for many years but again, we really can’t fathom the reaction of nonbelievers to the “sky departing as a scroll” without mentioning the lie they will be fed to explain away the truth.
To continue with this series I would ask you to read my former post “Cardiac Shock” as this will be following up on that series.
When you ponder Bible quotes, it is easy to see why they would want to explain this away, Satan works in fear and if they are taught to fear the return of the only one who can save them, he has accomplished his purpose. So lets look at a few examples.
God created the Heaven and Earth, dividing the waters and sealing it off from the rest of the heavens.
It does not stop with what we believe to be our universe, HIS kingdom is actually located in the third heaven, ABOVE our known universe.
He and his angels CAME DOWN to speak with Abram and to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.
He DESCENDED down to speak with Moses and deliver the commandments.
The angels COME DOWN to help, in his vision Jacob saw them DESCENDING AND ASCENDING between heaven and earth.
Enoch was TAKEN.

Elisha SAW Elijah TAKEN in a WHIRLWIND BY CHARIOTS OF FIRE.
What Ezekiel saw and tried to put into understandable words.
Jesus said He is from ABOVE, we are from beneath, he ASCENDED to His Father, who IS the Father of Lights and a consuming fire.
WE ARE FIRST FRUITS OF A KIND.
And my favorite, from Acts 1: 9-11
“And when he (Jesus) had spoken these things, while they BEHELD (watched) HE WAS TAKEN UP; AND A CLOUD RECEIVED HIM OUT OF THEIR SIGHT. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven AS HE WENT UP, two men (angels) stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, YE MEN OF GAILEE, WHY STAND YE GAZING UP INTO HEAVEN? THIS SAME JESUS, WHICH IS TAKEN UP FROM YOU INTO HEAVEN, SO SHALL COME IN LIKE MANNER AS YE HAVE SEEN HIM GO INTO HEAVEN.”
The list of interactions between heaven and earth could go on and on, but it is important to see the secular deception for what it is.
Again, Jesus said that He “Beheld Satan FALL as lightning TO THE EARTH.”
God promised He will never have us ignorant (kept in the dark) about these things.
Call it out and rebuke it, because HE IS ANCIENT, and He may very well be “alien”  (in the sense of as a stranger) to those who refuse to believe that He is indeed God but we need to lead all we can to the truth so that “that day does not come upon them, unawares.”
 HE IS coming back. IT WILL be a lot of things but pretty WILL NOT be one of them!
For the unsaved and non believers, it will be one of the most horrifying events in human history.
For the first fruits it will be the dawning of a new day, the beginning of the reign of our God as King of Earth, a day that I personally live for and they can call Him whatever they choose, and refuse to see it for what it really is, but call it whatever…

I call Him God and He is Ancient and He is only alien to those who refuse to believe!

Prophets, Prodigals, & Puttin’ it off…

“Cry loud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew (show) my people their transgressions…. ” Isaiah 58:1(a)

“Son of man, SPEAK to the children of thy people, and SAY unto them, when I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for THEIR WATCHMAN: IF HE SEETH THE SWORD COME upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people.

Then whoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning, if the sword come and take him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul (save his life).  Ezekiel 33:2,3,5

So that is a pretty heavy job, a prophet is to warn of all the impending snares, and traps, and forthcoming woes that God has allowed them to foresee. But the major problem comes when the prophets pull a Jonah and decide that they are just not going to do it. Understandably, the fear, the rejection, ridicule, and constant state of having to keep a drawn sword that comes with the job. But understandable or not, you did not apply for this job, you were chosen and as the “gifts and callings of God are without repentance” you are forever in the position GOD has chosen for you in his army and you can’t request a transfer, you cannot retire and you are not allowed to check out at anytime.

The reality of this, whether you do YOUR job or not, that calling remains active and it will follow you to Hades.

Luke 15:11-32, We know it as the story of the prodigal son. As the story tells this gentleman had two sons and the younger son decided that he would not work for his father, nor would he wait for his inheritance. So the father divides everything up and the younger son leaves out on his journey to sow his wild oats, and he played, he drank, he raised Hades, and he rocked, he rolled, he partied, and he “boogie-oggie-oggied till he just couldn’t boogie no more” and oh the women, women, and never enough women.

Got to pay to play, and this was a high maintenance lifestyle. Soon the money was gone, and all his fair weather friends had soon flown the coup taking the hungry chicks with them. Hard times came and he hit bottom, he took a job feeding pigs, an animal considered so unclean it was forbidden to his family, no one offered him help of any kind and he became so starved that he would have delighted in just eating a little of the food that he fed to the pigs. Being surrounded by filthy pigs that are eating better than you can be a very effective wake up call. He started to think of how even his fathers servants fared better than he.

But he worried about going back home because he felt no longer “worthy” to be a son, but maybe he could be a hired hand.

Satan loves to do that to us, we all have made mistakes and plenty have backslidden and he loves nothing more than to tell you that you have gone too far, done too much, and that after walking out on your father to his face, that he will never take you back so don’t bother trying. He wants you to wallow around with swine and eats pigs food when your Father wants to feed you with manna! Even being a long way off, his father saw him coming back ( Just as God sees you, my wayward friends, because he watches for you) he ran to meet him, kissed him and hugged him. He called for a robe (symbolic of course of God changing even swine dirt covered garments to robes of righteousness) and for a signet ring to be placed on his finger, declaring to the whole world his family lineage and that he was not a servant, but a son.

He ordered a huge feast prepared with the best he could offer placed before his son as a welcome home dinner. The oldest brother extremely upset because he had never left, had worked, and worked, and had never been treated so lavishly, showing us that sometimes there are brothers and sisters in Christ who may not be so happy to see you return to the sheepfold. Maybe it’s jealousy, maybe they hate seeing God bless you extraordinarily for returning to him, whatever the reason, you must always remember they are still your family, but don’t worry what they will say or how they will react.

Because the father NEVER ONCE ASKED the son where he had been, what he had done, or how he spent all the money. He welcomed him only with open arms and acceptance. Because his son “who had been dead was alive again”. That is how God sees us, and he is our father and the only opinion that matters is his.

So puttin’ it off, Watchmen know their job, we all know how scary it is. This was the main group all through the Bible that God had to constantly reassure to “not be discouraged nor dismayed” or “afraid of their faces”.

We know the world will hate you, it hated Jesus first. No one wants to be told that what they are doing is wrong according to the word of God, and they really don’t care what he has to say.

But God WILL NOT SEND JUDGMENT WITHOUT WARNING. “Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil (calamity) in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?  Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but (EXCEPT) he revealeth his secret UNTO HIS SERVANTS THE PROPHETS.” Amos 3:6

But as you step out God will bless each of those steps and as you proclaim his statues and his judgments, you really will start to develop a “streak”, sorta like the holy anger he allowed Ezekiel to feel, and if you need to ask him for confirmation over and over again, ask him! People often bash Gibeon (Judges chapters 6&7) because he asked for so much confirmation, I am not suggesting asking for “signs” but to pray and ask confirmation through his word or a word of wisdom. I personally think he was a wise man, because no one wants to “fall into the hands of the living God” !

He wants you to work and offers on the job training! Prodigals believe in their father and his work, they are just puttin’ it off till later on.

Sorry, there may not be much later left to put off until! WE ARE IN THE END OF DAYS, IT IS THE END TIMES, HENCEFORTH, THE END OF THE WORLD. No other way of saying that. The world is so wicked that it is coming under divine judgment. Babylon will without warning (well, secular warning) be destroyed from the face of the earth immediately after the rapture. And then all of Revelation will be fulfilled. It is time to pack it up and come back home to your father’s house. We are not promised our next breath, but we are promised that we will stand and give account for our lives and what we accomplished with the gifts he has given us.

As I write this and as you read it, and every second of every minute of every hour in every day of every year, year after year  there are people who are very much ALIVE and in HELL. Just as the “rich man lifted up his eyes in hell.” They are really there, and they are really suffering and they will never, ever have the chance escape that fate again. If he ever allowed you to hear those cries (and he just might) and make you painfully aware of their eternal presence there (and yes, he can arrange that too) you may look at your jobs a little more seriously.

Prophets, ever time you resist that fire that is trying to come from your mouth, this is what you are doing “BUT if  the watchman see the sword come, and BLOW NOT the trumpet, and the people BE NOT WARNED; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; BUT HIS BLOOD WILL I REQUIRE AT THE WATCHMAN’S HAND.” Ezekiel 33:6

You will be held personally responsible for the deaths of all you fail to warn.

Prodigals who refuse to return and “be about their father’s business” could very well get a bird’s-eye view of what became of those that they were to minister to and the consequences suffered in the lives their disobedience affected. Maybe see the eternal fire and hear the eternal screams of someone YOU were supposed to witness to, or someone whose suicide that could have been prevented had you been in the place of the will of God, where you could have been used to stop it. “He that gathereth in summer is a wise man:  but HE THAT SLEEPETH IN HARVEST IS A SON THAT CAUSETH SHAME.”

So end of story, THIS IS NOT ABOUT US! It is not about our comfort, our fear, our shame, our vices, or things we just don’t wanna let go! This is not about fitting in with the crowd as opposed to being singled out. IT IS NOT YOUR LIFE! YOUR LIFE BELONGS TO THE ONE WHO GAVE IT! It is about helping the wounded be healed, the blind to see, the deaf to hear, and lead the lost back home. It is ABOUT PUTTING THE SOULS OF OTHERS BEFORE YOURSELF. It is accountability, the book is written, that will never change, so  never put off today what you are not promised tomorrow to do!

EAGLE

There once was a beautiful, beautiful eagle. He was a very, very old eagle and came from a long line that had watched the birth of a nation and the determination of people to break free from tyranny.

Eagle knew the story of how a people left homes, riches, and all they have ever known to take a journey completely by faith.

Faith that would lead them to a plentiful land free from the persecution they suffered and  for freedom, freedom to worship the one true, creator God .

Many died on this journey and many more after their arrival, but God had given them land that a plague had left empty. And as time went he blessed them in all they did and they kept his commandments and worshipped him openly. Over time the apron strings of the mother country would prove that a battle would indeed need fought before true, true freedom would be won.

Eagle watched our forefathers as they tried at first to keep peace with their overlords and he watched as one by one stood up and proclaimed this land would be for liberty and it should be for all.

His favorite of these men would be Patrick Henry, a voice among the great voices who shaped our land. He heard him say words such as  “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God. I know not what course others may take but as for me give me liberty or give me death.”

He watched as tea poured into the harbor  and cries of  “The British are coming!” bellowed through the land. He watched as bloody soldiers fought to the death and gunpowder flooded the air and the sound of cannons echoed. And he watched as they pressed on, pressed on in their battle, because they would be free or they would die but they would never surrender.

He watched as this great battle came to a close and America proclaimed her freedom, freedom from her overlords and she would now shine as beacon to the whole world.

Eagle was honored as he was chosen to be her great symbol, brave, strong, powerful, and above all free.

He would be given olive branches, that he would always extend peace and he would reserve his great force as a last resort.

He would be given arrows, that he would use that force if necessary to defend his liberty and his people.

He would be given his shield to protect him and all he stood for and his main stand was “Death to tyranny”.

Eagle watched as the constitution was written and signed and he thought upon the words of his friend Patrick Henry, ” The constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

And Eagle soared, high in the sky, the sun warming him and flying higher and higher playfully trying to catch the ever elusive rainbow that the Creator had placed in the sky, a symbol of his glory and promise and Eagle knew that near the rainbow he would always be safe.

And he watched on, as struggles, trails, and heartaches came to the great land brought through evil men who had crept in there.

His feathers tattered a few times as freedom for those enslaved had to be won, pitting brother against brother and splitting the country in half.

He was ruffled as leader after leader rose and new troubles were unveiled, but storms would always pass and he would again gain his ground, liberty, bravery, and justice were on his wings.

Then suddenly it started growing dark, darker and darker as the new generations forgot their heritage and lost the wisdom held by the fathers, Eagle was reminded again of these words, “It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains” that were long ago spoken by Patrick Henry.

He listened as laws were changed, comprises made, and the peace that had been so hard-fought for was pandered away by making truces with those who hate us.

He listened as prayer to the creator was taken away, he heard as they mocked and profaned the Son of God’s holy name.

He looked on with horror as the holy laws, the ten commandments of God were ridiculed and taken away.

He looked on as a people who once had been free now were told what they may and may not do.

He looked down and saw streets lined with half naked  people, and parades, and mocking’s of the crucifixion of Jesus, the Son of God, reminding him again the warning of his friend, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason people of other faiths have been offered asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

Horror for his people took hold as the sky darkened and grew black and a strong wind violently blew and whipped around him, in the darkness his path was unclear and the battering winds against his wings knocked him off-balance, as he tried to regain flight something caught his eye, it was a rainbow!

 If he could just get to the protection of the rainbow he would be safe and regain his strength. 

But as he flew closer to hide under the protection of safety of the Creator, he realized this was  not the real rainbow, but a piece of fabric blowing in the great wind, and as it caught him, he became tangled, his olive branches and shield crashed to the ground, his arrows broke in the struggle to regain flight and Eagle fought with all he had but to no avail, He crashed helplessly to the ground.

As his heart beat faded, and drawing his last breath, as his eyes grew dim, he caught sight of shimmering in the field, it was the soft, amber glow of a fire burning and as Eagle’s life continued to slowly fade, he felt comfort, because he was sure that in that fire, he heard in the distance, that old funeral song, that old faithful hymn, that he remembered from the battlefields and the old camp meetings……. 

” Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, 

  He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,

  He hath loosed the lightning of his terrible swift sword,

  His truth is marching on… 

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,  

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,

  His truth is marching on………..”

* Authors note: This post is from 07/04/2015, but amidst all that is going on in our country and in the face of the “cancel culture” movement and cries to destroy history from our records, one thing remains true, as has been said many times by many others, we learn by our mistakes and we are warned by memories of the past reminding us of the error of our ways that “society”viewed during those times as acceptable.

But without Jesus Christ, and the blessing of Almighty God on us and on our land we are and will be absolutely nothing and we  welcome that blessing by and through our obedience to the Word of God and regardless of what society DICTATES or demands that we believe, we must stay true to what GOD through his Word has commanded us, and that is to worship him and love him and to be the representative bearing his Holy name as his child and follow the teaching of Philippians 2:15: “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation among whom ye shine as lights in the world.”

"BEING ALL JUDGY LIKE…."

You know we are the funniest people. Funny in the oh, how things can be so ironic sort of way.
We love nothing more than a good contest, everything thing from MR & MISS Universe, on down through every age group including cutest baby.
We have MVP’s and “Most likely to succeed”, we are glued to our televisions to cheer on our favorites in everything from sports to unknown talents and who might survive a grueling journey.
Our food and entertainment must be given two thumbs up or one tongue sticking out in mock “gaggery”.
And OUR JUDGING does not only apply to beauty and talent, why stop there when we can rate the worst dressed or ugliest pet?
And YET when we try to warn of the coming JUDGMENT from GOD, then suddenly we are all met with a “YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO JUDGE!”
Funny, bloody things. I love people who want to argue about a God they HAVE NEVER EVEN MET and try to argue scriptures from a book that cannot be understood without divine revelation!
One even made a fb comment about the new striped white house that she was so happy that there are people in america that are “not shallow minded” and she “thanked god” I came really close to posting a reply that she should really thank someone she knew!
But arguing against vain babbling’s by reprobates only lead to more ungodliness, and HIS word is quite clear and the gospel will defend itself, which soon also shall be crystal.
I don’t know who her god is but it is not the one true God!
They love to take scripture and try to point it at US, and now all you hear from the world and the candy coats is “Jesus said judge not”.
#1. They have no right quoting scripture unless it is to repent! ( Psalm 50:16)
#2. Jesus was referring to how we treat our FELLOW CHRISTIANS, when they fall or struggle, we are to help them back up. Not to laugh, and point at them, and kick them in the head for making mistakes.
#3. Wrath and fury are at the doors and we will soon see WHO JUDGMENT BELONGS TO!
They like scriptures so good, the candy coats have their favorites, but that is huge book and they are completely leaving out judgments.
So in honor of our dissent into Babylon and in honor of their new-found freedom and their sparkly flag, I proudly offer this:
A very small sampling of HIS ABILITY TO JUDGE:

Psalm 9:7,8,16,17: “But the Lord shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.”
“And he shall judge the world in righteousness: he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.”
“The Lord is known by the judgment which HE EXECUTED, THE WICKED IS SNARED IN THE WORK OF HIS OWN HANDS. Higgaion. Selah”
THE WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL, and ALL the NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD.”
Ezekiel 18:4,20,25,29,30-32: ” Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: THE SOUL THAT SINNETH, IT SHALL DIE.”
“The soul that sinneth, it shall die, The son shall not bear the iniquity (guilt) of his father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”
“Yet YE SAY, the way of the Lord is not equal (fair).  Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my ways equal (fair) ARE YOUR WAYS NOT UNEQUAL (UNFAIR)?
“Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal (fair). O house of Israel, are not my ways equal (fair)? and not your ways unequal (unfair)?
THEREFORE WILL I JUDGE YOU, O house of Israel, everyone according to his ways, saith the Lord God. REPENT AND TURN YOURSELVES FROM ALL YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS; so iniquity will not be your ruin.”
” For I HAVE NO PLEASURE in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God, wherefore TURN YOURSELVES, AND LIVE YE.”

Psalm 50:1,3,4,16,17,19,22:  “The MIGHTY GOD, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.”
“OUR GOD SHALL COME, AND SHALL NOT KEEP SILENCE: A FIRE SHALL DEVOUR BEFORE HIM, and it shall be very tempestuous around about him.”
HE shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may JUDGE his people.”
And for all those who think he is like they are and will try quoting his scripture back to him will help:
“BUT UNTO THE WICKED, GOD SAITH, WHAT HAS THOU TO DO TO DECLARE MY STATUES, OR THAT THOU SHOULDEST TAKE MY COVENANT IN THY MOUTH?”

Translation, HE SAID THEY HAVE NO BUSINESS EVEN SPEAKING HIS WORD!!!!!
“Seeing that thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.” (They hate him and his laws)
Thou giveth thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit (speaking evil and lies)
THESE things hast thou done, and I kept silence;
thou THOUGHT that I was altogether such a one as thyself: BUT I WILL reprove (rebuke) thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.”
“NOW CONSIDER THIS, YE THAT FORGET GOD, LEST I TEAR YOU INTO PIECES, AND THERE IS NONE TO DELIVER.”
So we now know, HE will JUDGE the earth, HE will declare HIS works and HE will bring down wrath on the reprobate, god-haters heads.
And a little dose of revelation for the candy coats, who love to argue, “Oh, that is Old Testament” and “But, but, JESUS said…..”
THIS IS WHAT JESUS SAID: Revelation 1:8 
 I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE ENDING, saith the LORD, WHICH IS, AND WHICH WAS, AND WHICH IS TO COME, THE ALMIGHTY.
JESUS IS GOD! THE ONE THEY LOVE TO QUOTE IS THE SAME GOD FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT!
And Hebrews 13:8″ JESUS CHRIST,THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TO DAY, AND FOR EVER.”
And as they scream peace, peace, peace, and “oh Jesus loves you” and he wants you to wallow unrepentant in sin and break all his commandments.

I leave you with HIS word, from the Matthew 10:34:
Think NOT that I am come to send peace on earth: I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, BUT A SWORD.” QUOTE THAT!
