Pressure, Peril, Circumcision And Pressing

Friends,

There is boiling, great pressure in the spiritual realm manifesting in our natural lives, enough to keep us all running in circles and fighting seemingly continuous battles. Peace with God is a premium these days, and quite honestly, this shaking is Eternal and Forever.

These are days of PRESSURE, PERIL, PRESSING, AND CIRCUMCISION….we are being separated away from either the world or the Kingdom of God unto either the world or the Kingdom of God.  The pretense of most American Christians seems to be that we will pass through this life, and this shaking, without pain and disappointment.

Honestly, the  physical beheading and burning of our brethren in Moslem dominated regions are exactly what the spirit of antichrist is seeking to do to all of us: decapitate us from the Head, bring in confusion and aimlessness and disjointedness, and burn up our lives with nothingness.

I know the Church will not go through The Great Tribulation, but in reality, American Christians have rapture-itis and have been groomed by cultural assumptions that we will never go through any tribulation. 

Evidently the martyrdom of many sincere Christians, loved just as much by God as any of us, is not The Great Tribulation. Our brethren are no less loved by the Lord than are we, and the number of those who do not deny the testimony of Jesus Christ, even unto death, is being fulfilled.

I see a number of things looming on the horizon, along with REVIVAL….but God.

I honestly believe there is hope for an American turnaround, due to a number of things the Lord has spoken to me down through the years…but oh, the price we will pay! Our nation is a very big ship, not a motorboat….The United States (no longer united) must be turned slowly. More importantly, the Church in America must repent of complacency and blindness…we must press into God in our sorrows and not be dishonest with our hearts before ourselves or Him.

We must not use our pains and sorrows and disappointments as excuses for situational disobedience to the Lord…if our humanity could only embrace the Truth as readily as we do perpetual victimhood. It seems we are all flawed to believe our circumstances of life are fatally exclusive, and that somehow we are beyond God’s ways.

This must be a common bond of mankind.

The sorrows of life affect people differently, but wounds go to the core of the soul. The compass of such depth is universal….we all know the darkness and brokenness of this world.

WE ARE ALL BEING BROKEN.

The choice in our dilemma of pain is either great bitterness of soul or great vulnerability to the loving Arms of our Heavenly Father.

It is a process of purging and agony as the wounded soul fears healing…..to add injury to injury, broken hearts running from healing make terrible messes.

SADLY, HORRIBLY, MANY CHRISTIANS ARE HARDENING THEIR HEARTS AND DETACHING FROM JESUS UNDER THE PRESSURE OF THIS PRESENT DARKNESS!

I wonder what each of us will learn in the Presence of God when we are departed from this stage of life, upon which we are all so bound , and the Fire of His Holiness consumes the wood, hay, and stubble of our theatre persona?

Vulnerability is often seen as humiliation….how sorrowfully man seems doomed to equate the devouring beasts of the darkness with the Love of the One Who gave His all for us! We run until we have nowhere to run, fleeing from the chaos of the abyss within….with our back against the wall of nowhere left to run, we usually still resist His Love as some alien invasion.

Jesus is very patient. Stop running. Trust. We all know we are wrong inside anyway and it is vulgar to hold to destruction when His Light shines ever so brightly.

Coming back Home, like a little child, is the only way to come….

THESE DAYS WE ARE ALL EITHER RUNNING TO JESUS OR AWAY FROM HIM…..

So, IF WE CHOOSE TO BE persistent, pressing, dependent, focused, desperate children, we must draw closer to the only Peace this world has ever and will ever know, the Prince of Peace. I remember days when many prayed day and night in worship and supplication…..the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is so necessary in our walk with Jesus in this present darkness.

Sadly, many folks who the Lord prepared for these days no longer seem to want His Power and Glory.

In the midst of this PRESSING, we must press in to Him and Him alone. The following passage of Scripture is now a list of formerly eschewed characteristics that are now cultural norms and mores both in the society and much of the Church,

2 Timothy 3:1-5  Amplified Bible (AMP)

But understand this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear].

For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane.

[They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good.

[They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God.

For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it [their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession]. Avoid [all] such people [turn away from them].

Yes, we face wars and rumors of war, very uncertain economic times, so graciously created by our government, and a great many vexing things that spell PERIL in other words. The greatest PERIL, however, is the delusion and complacency caused by the anti-Christ spirit or more accurately “Substitution Christ” or pseudo-Christ spirit. 

The stubbornness and centeredness on self and about self is the direct influence of antichrist.

The greatest opposition we face other than within, is living in a world of manimals who have given themselves over to a reprobate mind and live and act as mere brute beasts…

….THE WEB OF TEMPATION THE GOD OF THIS WORLD, SATAN, WEAVES TOWARDS US IS  THE LIE THEIR’S IS A NORMAL LIFE AND OURS IS NOT.  YES, THEIR LIFE IS NORMAL IF YOU ARE HELLBOUND AND WITHOUT HOPE AND DON’T CARE!

RUN AS HARD AS YOU KNOW HOW TO THE THRONE OF GRACE AND KEEP YOUR HEART AND MIND STAYED ON HIM! 

This spirit produces blasphemy centered on self, based on the rebellion of Satan, all the “I will’s” in Isaiah 14,

Isaiah 14:12-15

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Fall of Lucifer

12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer,[a] son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.

The world turns to insane wickedness, terminal self-centeredness,  and profaned depravity…..it is different upon Believers. 

Fear and confusion come upon us, and many are just worn out with stress and anxiety.  Godly folks tend to circle the camp and “center down” instead of pressing in to God. The mindset that “I am tired and need to find well-being at any cost” produces a complicated withdrawal from diligence and service. 

Any demand of common Christian obedience, even gathering for worship, is seen as a drain, and something to be resented and frowned upon.  The cover word is to call common Christian obedience “legalism”.

THE PROTECTIVE AND DEFENSIVE RESPONSE TO THE THREAT OF THE REALITY OF PERSECUTION AND TROUBLE FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS SAKE HAS TURNED INTO A CRITICAL DISSECTION OF WHATEVER APPEARS TO PLACE “ONE MORE ‘UNECESSARY’ PRESSURE” ON THOSE BEING WORN OUT BY THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST. 

This leaven is spiritual situational ethics.

The demand to protect oneself usually results in complacency and apathy, a confused stupor, AND a profound demand for false peace, peace, peace at any price.  The focus of Satan and the conniving PERIL facing us is the deception of the endless chasm of nothing, and aligning oneself with the preacher/teacher who most convincingly comforts one with the notion that nothing is the will of God.

A pastor friend of mine sent the following to me,

“I am personally fed up with the way our world is heading and am going to do anything I can to help it. I am going to do what I can, when I can, and do it every chance I can. Starting now. The word for the day is Apathy, its definition is lack of interest, lack of enthusiasm, or a total lack of concern. This describes most of us and is the reason America is in the shape we are in. We will tolerate anything, even when it harms us and our family. We need to grow a backbone and become the men and women we are called to be. I would like to share two quotes, (1) We may have found a cure for most evils, but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all-the apathy of human beings. Helen Keller. (2) The world is a dangerous place to live ; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it. Albert Einstein.”—Pastor J.C.

Succinctly, this quote from my friend is the essence of the PERIL we face….we are all being separated, but from what and to what? That choice is ours. We must realize that the closer we get to the End the narrower and steeper the path becomes…it is not time to back off but to press in and to push out towards the Lord in every way we know how. It is not time to do less….

WE MUST FOCUS/FIX OUR GAZE ON JESUS AND REALIZE WE ARE EITHER BEING SEPARATED FROM HIM UNTO THE WORLD, OR BEING DELIVERED FROM THE WORLD UNTO JESUS!

….dear Lord, my generation are an aging breed. When we came into this Walk in the 70’s and 80’s, there were older saints there willing to bear us into maturity, to pray for us, to help deliver us, to labor until Christ was formed in us.

NO, THEY WEREN’T PERFECT, AND NEITHER ARE WE, BUT WE CAN BE WILLING AND OBEDIENT.

Now pastors are receiving a new harvest of young folks much more challenged and messed up than were most of us when we were trying to come out of this insane world.  Most of the seasoned laborers and spiritual moms and dads are just not there after God has prepared them for a lifetime. 

Where are the folks who have been saved and filled with the Holy Spirit for decades? 

There were those waiting to serve us who, for the joy set before them, gave themselves so freely to our young lives….so many of us, instead of standing on their shoulders, for the sake of the next generation (as they did) have stepped out of our places before the Lord.

 A subsequent huge vacuum of experienced Believers is hindering the Church.  God gave me this next Scripture the week after I was saved, June 24th, 1977,

Psalm 48:8-14

New King James Version (NKJV)

As we have heard,
So we have seen
In the city of the Lord of hosts,
In the city of our God:
God will establish it forever. Selah

We have thought, O God, on Your lovingkindness,
In the midst of Your temple.
10 According to Your name, O God,
So is Your praise to the ends of the earth;
Your right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let Mount Zion rejoice,
Let the daughters of Judah be glad,
Because of Your judgments.

12 Walk about Zion,
And go all around her.
Count her towers;
13 Mark well her bulwarks;
Consider her palaces;
That you may tell it to the generation following.
14 For this is God,
Our God forever and ever;
He will be our guide
Even to death .

We need to get it in our heads and deep down in our souls that our purpose here as Christians is to love Him and to learn God’s Ways and about His Kingdom to impart this to those who come after us, and that the Lord will carry us and guide us until our work is done and we are with Him.

I don’t function well in my life in any arena unless I am freely giving what I have freely received. 

It is the way God’s Plan for each of us works, and we remain powerless and half-delivered from a lack of doing and giving…..quite honestly, we get it as we give and do. This is a spiritual activation.

SO WHILE WE ARE CIRCLING THE CAMP OF OUR SELF-LIFE, THE CHURCH IS BLEEDING OUT AND WE ARE BLEEDING IN…… 

Now the Church is under great assault all over the earth and here in America the Body is hobbled by a dearth of seasoned saints who are confused and worn out by the spirit of pseudochrist: it appears that procrastination and mediocrity are new Christian virtues, and that excellence and self-sacrifice are just “religious works” no one wants or has to do anymore.

I recently watched a teaching series, well-packaged, by a very well known pastor of one of the largest churches in America….the following Scripture was the main text of the session I watched with a class of a few adults and several older students,

Matthew 16:24-27

New King James Version (NKJV)

Take Up the Cross and Follow Him

24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

Right off the bat, this teacher told a huge congregation and millions of those watching not to worry about “taking up your Cross”, that “none of you will ever have to do any of that stuff”….I waited for the short teaching to end, the rest of it tolerable.  I then told the class that “preacher” had sold his church folks out by saying that, and all of had to know that one day our faith in Jesus could cost us our lives. 

A lively discussion emerged. 

My deal in this day of great spiritual PERIL is what won’t people say to produce FALSE PEACE in God’s people who need to prepare and not stumble at Jesus Christ in hard times?

WE MUST REMEMBER THIS ADMONITION OF SCRIPTURE…..

Matthew 10:32-33

New King James Version (NKJV)

32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

As humans, we need favor and acceptance and enjoy having a seat of authority. Through Jesus Christ, God gave believers favor, acceptance, and authority. One of the most deceptive and troubling things for me in the Body of Christ is that people draw doctrine, not from the well of the Word of God and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, but from the souls of those with whom they have found favor, acceptance, and authority.

This can be a good thing, ordained by God, and secure; this can also be a snare of what is earthly, sensual, and demonic.

The power of the group is well documented, and well as the power to want to please those who are good to you.

There is no new teaching, nothing new under the sun. Beware that you do not forget the Holy Spirit is always pointing to Jesus and everything about Him. The days are short and the devil is wroth, trying to take as many down as possible. Jesus is the center of our lives.

The Great Deceiver seeks to do this with false brethren and false teaching.

There has never been a greater need to keep our lamps full, our wicks trimmed, and to be prepared.  Many that God has called are being hoodwinked to believe the Lord’s Return is far off and that He will not actually “return” to the earth in physical form.

If the physical return of Jesus Christ to this earth is not true, then God is a liar, and He is not.

2 John 1:7-8

New King James Version (NKJV)

7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.

HE DID COME IN THE FLESH, HE WAS WITH US IN THE FLESH, HE WILL RETURN IN THE FLESH…….

1 John 4:1-3

New King James Version (NKJV)

4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

AND

Acts 1:1-11

New King James Version (NKJ)

1 The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, 3 to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” 6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven?

This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

THE LITERAL PHYSICAL JESUS IS COMING BACK JUST LIKE HE WENT AWAY….

BEWARE, FOR WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS. READ THE BOOKS OF JUDE, 2 PETER, AND 2 TIMOTHY…..GET READY TO RUN FOR THE LORD.

I believe strongly this terminal complacency and departure from basic Christian virtues is due in part to the loss of the mindset of imminency among Christians….this belief–that Jesus could return at any time with no precondition, that His Return is imminent–was commonly held in the early Church. This seems to have been disposed of, along with a healthy respect for and Godly fear of displeasing the Lord.

I fear the over-response to “Rapture-itis”, with its lack of action and belief no trouble will ever come to us here in America, has morphed into religiously-veiled unbelief and intellectual puffed-uppedness masquerading as “rational” doctrine. Arrogance and superiority and haughtiness and mockery are not fruits of good Bible doctrine.  Good men and women of God seem to be knuckling down to something less than pressing toward the mark of the High Calling in Christ Jesus.

If your “doctrine” makes you mean and better-than-thou you might want to do a heart check (and a Word check, away from the  siren call of your latest substitutionary high priest). The Word is plain; don’t complicate your spiritual life by trying to redefine truth.

One of our biggest hurdles is the inner demand to be more “spiritual” and “saved” than other Believers….the need for exclusivism and superiority. We are so bound to it, without the revelation of Grace, we fancy ourselves higher life forms, forgetting the pit from which we were dug. The pride of man dictates that without submission to the humility of Jesus Christ and a true hunger for righteousness, we must strive for whose doctrinal gun is the biggest. 

THEREIN LIES MUCH OF THE SOURCE OF ALL ERROR.

God have mercy on us babies and wannabe experts who are playing with dynamite. We do love our idols, our substitutions for God.  We do stumble and if we like the ditch into which we have fallen, seem bound to draw others in as well.

Idolatry is an abomination because we are to have no other gods before the Lord…..all idolatry is an abomination.  There is however, mentioned in the Bible both in Daniel 9:27 and quoted by Jesus, in Matthew 24:15, a supremely evil idolatry called “The Abomination of Desolation”

Abomination is defined as a thing that causes disgust or hatred: this word is synonymous with atrocity, disgrace, horror, obscenity, outrage, evil, crime, monstrosity, anathema, bane. That is how God feels about being replaced with an idol….it is an abominable abomination.
Desolation is defined as a state of complete emptiness or destruction; it is synonymous with bleakness, starkness, barrenness, sterility, wildness, isolation, loneliness, and remoteness….
….this abomination of desolation is an idolatry so hideous, it produces complete emptiness and destruction. 
The Holiest place on earth, before Jesus came, was the Holy of Holies in the Temple at Jerusalem, the dwelling place of the very Presence of God. There was the Ark of the Covenant housed. Only one  high priest went in once a year after great ceremonial cleansing, and then in great fear and trembling.
Antiochus Epiphanes was a Syrian general who thought to destroy Judaism….he outlawed all things Jewish: reading the Torah or circumcising a baby boy was punishable by death. He had a pig sacrificed upon the great altar in the Temple.  The last straw came in 168 BC on his birthday, when Antiochus had an image of Zeus erected in the Holy of Holies…thus began the Maccabean revolt that lasted for three years.  The celebration of the overthrow of this wicked man and the restoration of the Temple is now celebrated as Hanukkah.
Antiochus Epiphanes was a foreshadowing of the man of sin, the antichrist, who will erect his own image in the Holy of Holies in the rebuilt Temple, which will begin The Great Tribulation, the last three and one-half years of the 70th week of Daniel’s Vision. 
This testifies the Temple will indeed be rebuilt.
My point in this short history lesson is this–in the Church Age, each true Christian is the Holy of Holies; we are the Ark of the Covenant in this dispensation: we bear the manifested Presence of God.
2 Corinthians 2:14-16
New King James Version (NKJV)14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
Through the Blood of Jesus Christ, He is no longer God with us, but Christ in us!
Colossians 1:24-28
New King James Version (NKJV)

24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which[a] is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

 BELIEVE IT:  Through the Blood of Jesus,  we are in indwelt by God Himself……I tremble as I write, for I believe we Americans have acculturated idolatrous opposition to the Holiness of God in our very concept of self and nation.  There is a widening gap between our social consciousness and the Truth of God’s Plan through Jesus Christ. 
This desolation is terminal and the vacuum is not being filled with a heartfelt return to the Lord, but with either rabid anti-Christian polemics or “adaptive theology” that is nothing more than vapid, saltless, soul-stealing, End Time, demonic twists and turns whirling into non-existence. Such teaching appeals to the intellect of man and our sensual demand for an earthly heaven. 
Lot knew this deathly compromise in Sodom.
We are God’s Temple in the Church Age….my God we have defiled His Temple with other gods!
THE NUMBER ONE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION IS THE GOD OF “ME”…….DOING WHAT ONE WANTS AND CALLING IT THE WILL OF GOD. Please read all of I Samuel 12, a grand study in witchcraft and idolatry, but here is the money shot concerning King Saul,
1 Samuel 15:22-23
New King James Version (NKJV)22 So Samuel said:

“Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
He also has rejected you from being king.”

WELCOME TO AMERICA.

 Great wickedness is soon to manifest in our country, more than we could believe possible.
God is trying to warn His church!  There is about to be evil walking strongly on this land and if we are attached to evil it will destroy us.
WE MUST RETREAT FROM SPIRITUAL CYANIDE!

May God oppose the gurus of self who pollute the rivers of living water with the cyanide of presumed God-sanctioned  nothingness. 

 Besides the complacency-chasm of spiritual deception and peril the American church is dangling over, all that can be shaken will be shaken to the foundations of the earth so that what is eternal can be perceived….. 

THE VERY EARTH IS SHAKEN BY THE ACTIONS OR LACK THEREOF BY HER INHABITANTS:

Romans 8:18-22

New King James Version (NKJV)

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.

We are all groaning and travailing and laboring and really don’t understand why all that can be shaken must be shaken….

2 Peter 3:11-12a

New King James Version (NKJV)

11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God…..

EVIDENTLY OUR OBEDIENCE SPEEDS UP GOD’S PLANS….WHAT DOES OUR DISOBEDIENCE IMPLY?

THE EARTH VIOLENTLY REACTS TO THE SIN OF HER INHABITANTS WHEN A CERTAIN LEVEL OF REBELLION IS REACHED…THE VERY CREATION VOMITS OFF THOSE WHO POLLUTE IT:

 Leviticus 18:21-28

Amplified Bible (AMP)

21 You shall not give any of your children to pass through the fire and sacrifice them to Molech [the fire god], nor shall you profane the name of your God [by giving it to false gods]. I am the Lord.

22 You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination.

23 Neither shall you lie with any beast and defile yourself with it; neither shall any woman yield herself to a beast to lie with it; it is confusion, perversion, and degradedly carnal.

24 Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, for in all these things the nations are defiled which I am casting out before you.

25 And the land is defiled; therefore I visit the iniquity of it upon it, and the land itself vomits out her inhabitants.

26 So you shall keep My statutes and My ordinances and shall not commit any of these abominations, neither the native-born nor any stranger who sojourns among you,

27 For all these abominations have the men of the land done who were before you, and the land is defiled—

28 [Do none of these things] lest the land spew (vomit) you out when you defile it as it spewed (vomited) out the nation that was before you.

MAN’S REBELLION CAUSES DROUGHT AND DISRUPTS NATURE:

Psalm 68:6

Amplified Bible (AMP)

God places the solitary in families and gives the desolate a home in which to dwell; He leads the prisoners out to prosperity; but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

AND,

Jeremiah 23:10

King James Version (KJV)

10 For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.

AND.

Hosea 4:1-3

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Hear the word of the Lord, you children of Israel, for the Lord has a controversy (a pleading contention) with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no faithfulness, love, pity and mercy, or knowledge of God [from personal experience with Him] in the land.

There is nothing but [false] swearing and breaking faith and killing and stealing and committing adultery; they break out [into violence], one [deed of] bloodshed following close on another.

Therefore shall the land [continually] mourn, and all who dwell in it shall languish, together with the wild beasts of the open country and the birds of the heavens; yes, the fishes of the sea also shall [perish because of the drought] be collected and taken away.

What we do on the earth affects the creation….it is an amazing thing. Get out a map of the earth and look at the deserts and their location…..wow! Consider the culture and belief systems of the desert places on earth. The Word is true.

Since Thanksgiving and before I have been seeing the word “meteor” in the spirit, as well as “cataclysm”, and bizarre HUGE storms along with other peculiar things in nature……I know the great plates in the earth are going to move under our nation, and that heretofore unseen tides will affect our coasts. I have had dreams of earthquakes in which every house in neighborhoods were torn, except those of Christians.

Even now our government seems to aid and abet Moslems in every way resulting in horrible plans against Jews and Christians. The Prince of Persia has once again arisen to destroy God’s people and Michael, God’s Prince over Israel, has come to bear to stand up….

Saints, this is going to be quite a year.

I WEEP and hope for mercy….

 The great gangrene and treason in our government has planted a fifth column inside our nation and will will cause fragmentation and anarchy in the culture we have never seen…. but God is about to laugh at this foolishness and wickedness, then this house of cards will collapse.  That collapse must be the Church’s finest hour, but in our present opiate of denial and self-service, I wonder if, indeed, She may not fragment into splinters of waves of doctrine and gated communities?

The government funded and sanctioned church is certainly under construction as we speak. 

The church of man will persecute The Church.

So, my fellow Christian, what are we do in these Latter Times in which we live? It is so readily apparent we are in the Baptism of Fire of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

The Okefenokee Swamp is about 80 miles south of here and is one of the world’s five largest swamps….it also sits on top of one of the largest underground rivers in the world.  The name of the swamp is Native American for “the land of the trembling earth”.

 Several years ago, we had one of the severest droughts on record….the Summer heat in Georgia is insufferable without rain.  The rotted floor of the swamp dried out to a great depth, considering the abnormally high water table: two rivers originate out of this natural wonder.

The great swamp caught on fire through dry lightning…..it burned for months….it was burning up to 16 feet deep.  Stifling smoke was over our area, even though it was nearly 100 miles away…..amazing that sitting over that great underground river was a huge pyre of dried and rotted peat many feet thick. 

Georgia often has hurricanes sweep by our coast, whipping up great inland winds with no rain….it was hurricane season. A very nervous forestry ranger confided in me that if a hurricane came near Georgia, the whole Southern part of the state would go up in flames and nothing could stop it.

Every church I was involved with began to pray for rain.

That whole time we smelled smoke, the smell of fire, continuously day and night…..it was often like fog, and I drove a lot; at times it was stifling, along with the heat.  Knowing a little about the geology of the swamp, I found it amazing that fire was burning deep in the rot above an immeasurable resource of pure water….it was astounding.

The “land that trembled” was also the “land that was burning deep”. I even prayed that God would cause the fountains of the deep to leap upward to quench the flames.  I saw grown men who were professionals in great fear about the potential for destruction…..

….MERCIFULLY, SOAKING RAINS CAME AND PUT OUT THE DEEP FIRE!

I heard  some disturbing things in my spirit during that time about the sacrifice being salted with fire….you see, the Scripture is important.  John the Baptist told his followers he was not the Messiah, but there was One coming after him Who Baptized with the Holy Spirit and Fire….

Matthew 3:1-12

Amplified Bible (AMP)

In those days there appeared John the Baptist, preaching in the Wilderness (Desert) of Judea

And saying, Repent ([a]think differently; change your mind, regretting your sins and changing your conduct), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

This is he who was mentioned by the prophet Isaiah when he said, The voice of one crying in the wilderness (shouting in the desert), Prepare the road for the Lord, make His highways straight (level, [b]direct).

This same John’s garments were made of camel’s hair, and he wore a leather girdle about his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey.

Then Jerusalem and all Judea and all the country round about the Jordan went out to him;

And they were baptized in the Jordan by him, confessing their sins.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee and escape from the wrath and indignation [of God against disobedience] that is coming?

Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart];

And do not presume to say to yourselves, We have Abraham for our forefather; for I tell you, God is able to raise up descendants for Abraham from these stones!

10 And already the ax is lying at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

11 I indeed baptize you [c]in (with) water [d]because of repentance [that is, because of your [e]changing your minds for the better, heartily amending your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins]. But He Who is coming after me is mightier than I, Whose sandals I am not worthy or fit to take off or carry; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

12 His winnowing fan (shovel, fork) is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear out and clean His threshing floor and gather and store His wheat in His barn, but the chaff He will burn up with fire that cannot be put out.

America is about to become known as “the land that trembles” and the “land that is burning”.  America was once the Gospel Capital of the whole earth, with many rivers running from us throughout the earth. Now the great rivers are forced underground and rot covers the surface of the rivers. GOD IS ABOUT TO BURN THE ROT OUT….I TREMBLE IN MY HEART.

THE PROBLEM WITH US NOW IS THAT GOD HAS MOVED AHEAD IN HIS PLAN….WE ARE CAMPED OUT AT A PLEASANT PLACE IN THE PAST WE WANT RESURRECTED.  WE REALLY DON’T KNOW WHETHER GOD IS TRYING TO PURIFY US OR THE DEVIL IS TRYING TO KILL US! 

BOTH….

Satan is trying to kill and neutralize all Christians with every form of destruction and deception.

The purifying Baptism of Fire of Jesus Christ is on us…we are at place of CIRCUMCISION, of cutting away. Oh that we would know this Day of Visitation!  I wonder if Jesus weeps over America as He did over Jerusalem as He was entering the city for the last time before His Crucifixion?

The first mention of a CIRCUMCISION OF HEART in the Bible is in Deuteronomy 10 in the desert wanderings of the Israelites…part of their journey was from Gudgodah (a place of cutting and slashing) then to Jothbatha (a place of streams of running water):  after that the Levites were separated and given no inheritance among the people.

God Himself was their portion. This is a time of CIRCUMCISION OF HEART, either to The Falling Away and great delusion, or to the Lord Jesus Himself. Will Jesus be your inheritance in the “land that trembles” and the “land that burns”?

Hebrews 4

New King James Version (NKJV)

Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them,[a] not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:

“So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest,’”[b]

although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; [c] and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.”[d]

Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”[e]

For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.

11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 Time for us all to run to the Throne of Grace, to allow the Word to divide us soul and spirit, and to obtain Mercy and find Grace to help in our time of need….these knees are made for bending, these heads for bowing, these hearts for submitting.

There is fresh oil and new wine and abundance of joy in His Presence….

The choice is very simple, Jesus Christ, and Him crucified, or antichrist crazy. Everyone on earth is going to serve somebody…

Revelation 4-5

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Throne Room of Heaven

After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”

Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was[a] like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns[b] of gold on their heads. And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices.[c] Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the[d] seven Spirits of God.

Before the throne there was[e] a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:

“Holy, holy, holy,[f]
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”

Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

11 “You are worthy, O Lord,[g]
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist[h] and were created.”

The Lamb Takes the Scroll

And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.

So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read[i] the scroll, or to look at it. But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose[j] its seven seals.”

And I looked, and behold,[k] in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.

Worthy Is the Lamb

Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made us[l] kings[m] and priests to our God;
And we[n] shall reign on the earth.”

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:

“Blessing and honor and glory and power
Be to Him who sits on the throne,
And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”

14 Then the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four[p] elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.[q]

Join the heavenly host and all who have gone before us and all who will come….now is the time to go up to your place before the Lord. Every divided heart on this earth will become 100 percent Christ or anti-Christ.

Malachi 3:13-18

Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 Your words have been strong and hard against Me, says the Lord. Yet you say, What have we spoken against You?

14 You have said, It is useless to serve God, and what profit is it if we keep His ordinances and walk gloomily and as if in mourning apparel before the Lord of hosts?

15 And now we consider the proud and arrogant to be happy and favored; evildoers are exalted and prosper; yes, and when they test God, they escape [unpunished].

16 Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name.

17 And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.

18 Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who does not serve Him.

ETERNITY IS A LONG TIME AND THESE ARE FOREVER DAYS…..JESUS IS COMING BACK AGAIN.

AMEN!

What Do YOU Believe?

Friends,

WELCOME TO 2015…

This is a quick note, but a strong impression from the Lord for the New Year….

….in 2012 at the beginning of the year, I had a vision of a huge angel blowing a huge trumpet over the United States.  Just after this,  I was walking outside at night, and a light hit all around me:  I honestly thought lightning had hit me, but it was a cloudless sky and I did not burn. When I inquired about this, what I knew the Lord was saying,

“This is how quickly I move when I move.”

Just after this for each of the first three weeks of 2012, I heard audibly a trumpet blast, once each week. The first one totally fried me because I thought He had come and I had been left….I went looking for my wife, because I knew if she was still here, I was safe. She is a lot better than me.

Understand this is not a usual experience for me and I was rattled….

After the third week and the third trumpet sound, I remembered the vision of the angel blowing the trumpet over America and I sought the Lord about what this meant…the response was quick and succinct:

I am blowing three trumpets over America, a call to repentance and holiness, a call to doctrinal purity, and a thirst for the Presence of God and the Power of the Holy Spirit.”

Seeing what has happened in the visible Church over the last three years since, anything but seems to be the Truth, but I know the Lord is at work and that there is a poverty of spirit and a crushing upon the Body of Christ in this nation…we must hunger for Jesus.  I tremble at the shaking I feel in my soul for our nation and for my own being.

I have been in great travail of soul since January 1st, 2015.  This really started before Thanksgiving 2014. It is a trembling and mourning for our insane nation, but also upon my own soul.

2015 will be a year of the breaking forth of the Lord upon His people and deep repentance; those of the church world who do not want the real Jesus will join forces with this world system and turn on the Church.

This is happening now…rebellion against the Word of God makes strange bedfellows and churchgoers are in sync with the spirit of antichrist in a big way.  It is obvious the two most hated groups of people in America are Bible-believing Christians and the unborn.

Mute point…

In consideration of the things I saw in 2012 and what has manifested in the three years since, I have a question,

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

For so many who call themselves Christian, the Bible seems unimportant. People go to Church and do what they want to and live how they want to.  I can usually clear the air in a church from the get go by making a few statements about fornication and marriage.  Marriage  between a man and a woman has become an unwanted action for many folks who profess Jesus, but they are active sexually.

That simple statement deeply offends “the church” now. Yes, people sin, and Jesus paid the price for sin, but it is folly to live in sin and spout “Grace” without searching for repentance.

Thank God for His Pardon…He is not cruel and knows us in our weakness, but He does not condone stubbornness or outright rebellion…in His Mercy may He visit us even in our ignorance….

I have an observation at the beginning of 2015, in this poverty of spirit, and a seeming drought in the Church of the Glory and Power of God (does your soul thirst for Him in the desert place? If not why not?)…

…..we humans are far too quick to glean our Bible doctrine either from the cup of favor and acceptance we find with others in the Body of Christ, or from the circumstances of life which break us and cause us to suffer…be very careful.

The Bible is a great balance. It is completely possible to hear and believe out of the “spirit” of a group, an individual, or the spiritual atmosphere that affects us in life, and it not be from the Lord. The power of the group, the influence of our human need for acceptance, our desire to “be right”, our need for security and authority, our sorrows and trials, all have the ability to be used by our soul and the enemy as a substitute.

WE ALL SEARCH FOR A PREDICTABLE COMFORT ZONE IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE THAT DEMANDS LITTLE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILTY.

We are all very susceptible to this….I am guilty of this and sought forgiveness and correction from the Lord where I have prophesied out of a wrong religious spirit. May God keep and preserve us and the Holy Spirit guide and protect us in Jesus Name.

Another question is how can we bear to go to Church in our present danger and circumstances and not cry out to the Living God for help and change? How can preachers not open altars and implore the Lord to send His Spirit upon His people? We would not go into a restaurant that did not feed us natural food that sustained us….don’t blame the preacher because you are content and satisfied with less than Holy Fire….SO MANY CHURCHES THAT PREACH AND TEACH THE POWER OF GOD DO SO TO FOLKS NOT INTERESTED.

So many Spirit-filled churches are filled with people who don’t want the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and don’t want Him to move.

I stand in awe and trembling before God and man….the breaking has begun. We have to ask ourselves what we believe and why we are satisfied with less than. Dear God what will it take? What peril must assail us? What must explode upon our lives and our nation? I plead for Mercy and reserve myself before the Lord.

WELCOME TO 2015!

MINISTRY UPDATES

We so deeply appreciate the prayers and support of all of you…I honestly believe I not only live by faith, but by the prayers of the saints.  I covet  your prayers for our health, safety, and provision, as well as the forward motion and open doors of Glorious Light Ministries.

My wife and I began dating in 1981 through working together on the worship team of the church we grew up in. We have always been together in our home churches in worship, but now we are able and anointed by God to minister in worship together when we travel.  This privilege is such a reminder to me of all the goodness of God in my life and in ours.

Pray for us as we go and pray that I will minister true to the Word of God and accurately by the Gifts of the Holy Spirit……even a donkey could prophesy when Nancy plays and sings. Ask God to strengthen our bodies and voices.

I have been battling exhaustion, fatigue, and pain again….I know this is a spiritual attack against us, even purposeful. I thank you for taking the time to ask God to protect us and all that pertains to us. I also ask that you prayerfully consider what the Lord would have you do to support this ministry. 

We pray for each of you and thank God for you.

Merry Christmas To All My Dear Friends,

 

2014 is nearly spent….we will see the Lord High and Lifted up in 2015, I am assured.

 

I know great and awesome times are upon the earth…we all stumble as the antichrist spirit hysterically tries to take center stage, deceiving many. I have contemplated much over this season, actually since this past Summer. We read the Bible as some distant account of a history this world demands we do not believe, but we do nonetheless.

 

We have the measure of faith…..even the Gift of Faith.

 

Some are dispassionate….this world is so brutal.  Many are either confused, or broken, or dumb.

 

 We read the account of Herod’s slaughter of all the male children under two in Bethlehem when the Magi came searching for Jesus (Matthew 2). That seems a small thing in our society where babies are human trash…they would be used for fertilizer or dog food if industry could get away with it.  The bodies of Jews were used for soap and fertilizer in the industry of death that filled Europe.

 

Mankind….

 

The American-assisted butchery of the Christians in Iraq is old news….children are beheaded in front of their parents for not renouncing Jesus.  The number of the martyrs of Jesus Christ and for His testimony is being fulfilled, and many of us do not take it to heart…even as American Christians and the Jews increasingly face the American flag superimposed with the crescent moon of Islam.

 

The real Jesus is indeed the Stumbling Block of all time….thank God He is!

 

I am privy to the details of many lives…for so many, the Christmas Season is one of sadness.  I know too many who are mourning the deaths of loved ones, failed marriages, children gone crazy with the god of this world. I know more who feel fatally stricken with the regrets of their own sins, others who are burdened with the strain of debt or sickness.

 

Others are heavy of heart for the plight of our nation and awry with the madness of our political leaders…..oh yes, judgment comes.

 

 God will show mercy to those who will seek it….Jesus is our Hope.

 

 The Pandora’s Box of rebellion against God is the new normal, and I mourn for those who will be lost forever in the wave of a fundamentally changed America. 

 

Such “progress” is straight from the open vent of Hell so lauded by those who live in false reality, building a tower to Heaven that will not stand…….there is no public outcry against the mutilation and butchery of innumerable women in the Moslem world, or the beheadings of those who believe in Jesus (can anybody see any connections in the Book of Revelation?).

 

All of this is exactly why Satan hates Christmas so much……we know and we believe. Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and no one comes to the Father but by Him.

 

God’s Good News of His Love for mankind, so much so that He would give His only Son to save us from His coming wrath against the madness of rebellion, just drives this world over the edge…..it is simple and easily summed up,

 

 

John 3:16-21

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

 

These are the Last Days….

God is pouring His Spirit out on all flesh….

Two spirits are manifesting on planet Earth, Christ and antichrist.

Satan hates the testimony of Jesus Christ….it has never been lost on me that both Nagasaki and Hiroshima were the two cities in Japan with large native populations of Christians. Millions of Christians are currently subjected to genocide throughout the world and no one blinks…

Those possessed of antichrist hate the Light because their deeds are evil and they love the darkness rather than the Light….the mystery of iniquity and the mystery of Christ in collision.

I know in my knower that next Christmas will be different…we have much to be thankful for and much need for intercession and consecration. I get many reports of the saints waking at three and four in the mornings to pray. 

This Christmas has been very unique for us…we have the love of our family. God has been so good to us in so many ways!

My wife has worked tirelessly and planned for months to make this season special for our family.  A few days ago we were both stricken with flu (we will be officially non-contagious tomorrow)….our son and his family had made plans to be with us, but we had to cancel. Our daughter, who lives nearer, came to take care of us.

How we have appreciated the love and concern of our children and friends!

We received a call from dear friends while we were well-stricken with flu. They came with their young twins and baby, and sang Christmas hymns in our front yard while we stood at the door wrapped in blankets. I had no idea the lady had such a wonderful voice! They were so kind….

….then their car would not start and they were stranded for part of the night!

My point….none of these things dims the joy of God’s gift to us!

I pray to God I never complain again…I write this with tears.  Friends drove for an hour and brought their desperately sick grandson for prayer this past Sunday. This boy has been fighting brain cancer for three years. He tells his grandparents he is called to preach for Jesus.  He asked to come.  I bathed and dressed and put on a face mask, and doused myself with hand sanitizer and met them at our church after service (we could not attend)…

The Lord met us there.  This was the day my healthy son and daughter-in-law and grandson were to come and we had to cancel because of the flu. We are all standing and believing for the boy who came to be healed. Pray in faith for him.

I stand in the awesome Love of the only true God, redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, forgiven of my sins, and filled with the Power and Promises of the Almighty. The madness in this world testifies to my spirit man that time is spent and there is a great acceleration of world events.

I have more hope and joy as a Christian in the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ than ever before….I know that man will never defeat Him. 

Study the history of tyrants and fools who oppose the Lord….they disappear. I know that God has The Plan. I watch Israel, knowing her Redeemer is at work.

I watch the Apostasy upon the Church, and tremble, but know that a Remnant of Great Holiness and Power is arising upon the earth….

I enjoy the time we have with the Lord now in our present circumstances, knowing that my years, my tears, my forever are in His Hands….my Redeemer lives!  His Promises hang on His Name and His Word, and He has sworn by His Name and His Word…

I know great signs are coming in the heavens to shock Russia in her rush to war….I know the madness of Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4) is upon our national leaders who fancy themselves bigger than God…I know the earth is literally groaning. 

I see the strong delusion upon our world and know that God is about to exalt Himself in the face of all His enemies.

I see the bloodthirsty madness upon the Moslem nations and know they are being drawn out to judgment with a hook in their jaws.

BUT GOD !!!!!

I see the love of God in a manger with the shadow of the Cross over a Jewish virgin and her betrothed husband, with a perfect Lamb, Jesus our Passover, born to die for the whole world…

 

Joy to the World

 

Joy to the World , the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

 

Now we see kingdoms in conflict with much chaos, BUT…..

The Daystar is arising….these are the Latter Times…..these are the days of fierce yet unstable world leaders in confusion and defiance of God and all that is good.

WE WILL ALL SEE!

 Daniel 2:44

The Message (MSG)

44-45 “But throughout the history of these kingdoms, the God of heaven will be building a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will this kingdom ever fall under the domination of another. In the end it will crush the other kingdoms and finish them off and come through it all standing strong and eternal. It will be like the stone cut from the mountain by the invisible hand that crushed the iron, the bronze, the ceramic, the silver, and the gold.

“The great God has let the king know what will happen in the years to come. This is an accurate telling of the dream, and the interpretation is also accurate.”

My friends, our God is a Consuming Fire….even the seams of the earth are groaning under the burden of the Fall, and we are past due upon the earth to be exposed by the Holy Spirit as the sons of God….

Why did the angels praise Him and why did the Magi seek Him? The world has been in chaos since His Birth, His Life, His Death, His Burial, His Resurrection, His Word!  God’s Plan….

Isaiah 9:6-7

Amplified Bible (AMP)

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this

 You see, my dear friends, even Job knew what we must allow in our own hearts now in this time of passage.

Job 19:25

King James Version (KJV)

25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

Do not allow the noise of this dying world to turn your heart from all the Love and Promise God has given us in the Lord Jesus Christ….as He stands, so we stand with Him in this Latter Day.

 My prayer for each of you on this glorious Christmas Day 2014, is for the Lord Himself to set a new seal of the awareness of His Master Plan, His redemptive and keeping Grace, and His Power…..

Remember that He is the only Righteous Judge and vengeance is His and His alone…I pray the Lord releases His Glory and Presence upon each of you in Jesus Name to reside in a new way, ever increasing from now until our work is finished.

God bless and keep you all,

Meeting Friday, December 5th and Daily Meditations

Friends,
It is my privilege to be speaking this Friday, December 5th, at the Blackshear Aglow Lighthouse Christmas meeting. The following is their promotion of the meeting.
Blackshear Aglow Lighthouse is having a special Christmas meeting Friday night, Dec. 5th with Vaughn Clark ministering at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary of Abundant Life Christian Center at 121 Main Street. Bro Clark is from Dublin, Ga and has been traveling since 1988 to exhort, encourage, and lift up the Church and unchurched through the prophetic call on his life.
You are also welcome to join us for a covered dish supper at 6:00 in the Fellowship Building before the worship service. Aglow was launched to bring the lost into the Kingdom and to come along side the Church and help build up those who are walking out their faith journey. We need to experience Christ’s presence together as we sit at His feet and worship Him!
Even though Aglow is the women’s arm of Full Gospel Businessmen, this meeting is open to all. Please get the word out about this meeting.
I covet your prayers that I would minister true to the Word of God and accurately by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Pray for safety for all who travel. Those sponsoring this meeting have come under attack as well.
My wife and I will be leading worship Friday evening…..this is how we began our relationship. We flow together in the Spirit in worship. I also ask you to pray that God will manifest His Presence for His Glory and anoint us to lead those present into His Throne Room.
Here are my thoughts today:
Sometime ago I was watching a espionage/government thriller….an agent was being injected with some drug that caused excruciating pain, even to the point of death, trying to force a confession out of one who was known to be innocent.

 This stuck with me and bubbled up today with the image of the screaming recipient of the injection with these words in my spirit,

“Guilt is a poisonous and fatal drug.”

The devil uses regret, guilt, and shame in the same way, to inflict agony, even unto death, when he knows we are innocent by the Blood of the Lamb.  He has no right to torture Christians with things we can’t go back and change….this is the wonder of God’s forgiveness and His Grace.

Rise up from the torture chamber of Satan’s accusation and run boldly before the Throne of God to Jesus….when your conscience has been so wounded and stricken, there is only one Place to go!

God does not allow us to know the sinfulness of sin to destroy us, but to open our eyes, and to walk in the Grace and freedom He purchased for us with the Blood of His Own Son. Take sin seriously and walk with Him in the Light as He is in the Light….His Blood continuously cleanses us.  Asking God for change is part of hungering and thirsting after righteousness, but you are His and He has cleaned, cleansed, and is cleaning you for His own.

Jesus bore Satan’s inquisition for you.  You are the redeemed of the Lord.

We Christians are not perfect, but are forgiven, and justified, and being perfected.

Read the following Scriptures and reflect on God’s goodness towards you with a grateful and thankful heart.
Colossians 2:8-15  New King James Version

8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. 11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.

  13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

Romans 8:28-39

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 John 3:1-3

3 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

2 Corinthians 5:21

21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

We must strive to rest in the Truth that God did not send Jesus to condemn us, but to save us. Regret is a powerful tool the enemy uses to delude us and distract us from our devotion to the Lord, as well as the enjoyment of our salvation and walk with Him.

There is deep healing that comes from trusting in your salvation without the fear of being rejected by God…perfect love casts out fear.  You are loved by God.

Trust in His love….He is forever and forever and forever! Jesus is faithful!

                                          …………………………………….

Remember us in your prayers…this was truly a wonderful time of Thanksgiving. So many of have stood and prayed for our family through dark times. We are living in the fruit and unfolding fulfillment of your prayers for our children and family. 

 God bless and reward and keep each of you in Jesus Name and may your reap many times in blessing in your own lives what you have richly sown into ours.

Prayerfully consider what the Lord would have you do to support Glorious Light Ministries.

In Jesus,

A CALL TO PRAYER AND MINISTRY UPDATE

Friends,

I have had a great sense of foreboding for the nation since the night of the mid-term elections….I have seen this kind of unveiled venom only a couple of times before. I have been sleeping in patches: I wake from heavy sleep to sit and pray in the Spirit for extended periods of time. There is a script from Hell playing behind the scenes and I am calling God’s people to pray.

I do not mean to be pessimistic–I believe there is great potential for an American revival both spiritually and economically. But I am grieved and gripped with great sorrow.

The President and the Democrats are going to try and force the Republicans to public controversy and  impeachment unless that hand is restrained by God: national chaos would result which is the desired end. Martial law would be declared and all civil liberties suspended. The Constitution has been trashed provocatively by the Party and the President since the 2008 election. There is near open war with mockery and barely veiled threats on the airways.

This will now be brought to a fever pitch with the race card flown high….I would ask all Christians of every race to remember who you are in Jesus and to remember the President’s own words in the last presidential election,

“Vote for vengeance.”

My life was forever marked by that statement; this is a vendetta of bloodlust and hatred for our nation. The damage done is not to be estimated until the future is seen and assessed.

Only God can save America from much innocent blood being shed. A society who slaughters their young and facilitates the deaths of the elderly and infirm already has no mercy or natural affection. We are poised for tribulation in our culture that honestly, if successful, will be applauded as a job well done for “the cause”.

Until that end is achieved,  the intelligentsia (who have become fools because they say there is no God) will consider there is still “work to be done”.

May God have mercy on us and hold back the extortion of our society through the fear of anarchy…..it is tragic.

I have such sorrow. I am not a weeper. I begin to weep when I am perfectly fine for no reason. This is born of the Spirit: HE groans and travails for our land.

Sadly many who profess the Name of Jesus Christ have fallen to the siren call of race rising against race…..America, the Melting Pot of the world, is becoming a seething cauldron of presumed justifiable, primal hatred fanned by demon strongholds in the unseen arena.

I am sure Satan applauds the success of “reverends” who spew venom and hatred….there is an element in our society which seems to scour the nation searching for “marketable” offenses with which to whip our people into frenzy. Never underestimate the psychology of the mob to engineer social change. I see such catastrophe, such heartbreak in my spirit man! One of the great tragedies of our era is the commandeering of so noble a cause as civil rights to be relegated into a bondage more binding than slavery and more subtle.

A few years ago in the last riots in South L.A., I watched with horror as a white truck driver was stopped by a mob. He could have easily run over them with the big rig, but had no desire to hurt the young men who blocked his way. He was dragged from the truck and beat repeatedly in the head with a brick….it was all caught on video.

A Godly black man ran to him and lay on top of him….that good man is all that saved him. The truck driver lingered near death in a coma for a long time….

In the meanwhile, the usual public appearance by the parents of his assailants aired on television…there were no apologies for the heinous assault. A group of their mothers boldly proclaimed that the mothers in South L.A. knew how to fast and pray for their sons….

My question is who in Heaven’s Name were they fasting and praying to? Jesus Christ or a demon prince over L.A. that justifies such things?

The truck driver woke up and called a news conference; with slurred speech due to brain damage, he declared his forgiveness for his attackers and pleaded for a cessation to the violence.

I now know clearly what is planned for our nation. The American Department of Justice seems to be at the helm. This evil reach is even going into grade school. I have stories coming to me from parents who are being forced to pull their children out of school due to racial bullying that is defended by school authorities. Sadly there enough white bigots and black race baiters to beguile the ignorant and possessed who seem to lather for an excuse to pour out their shame without any fear of punishment—let me make sure to include beatings, robbing, looting, and burning, especially for the cameras.

The police have gone nuts along with this frenzy….I only imagine what they face on the streets.

I challenge every pulpit in America to face this hatred dead on and for all Christians to pray. There will literally be dead places in our nation where no one can live if this is not stopped.

My cry to all my black and white brothers is to remember Rwanda….the statistically most Christian nation on the continent of Africa descended into genocide of brother killing brother. This genocide was not spontaneous, but was started by people in high places, who stood back and watched the slaughter. Satan wishes the same for America.

I write this with a broken heart.

I am not a racist.

Pray. Prayer and revival kept South Africa from a planned and well-orquestrated bloodbath.

Now is the hour for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.

Much love in Jesus,

Vaughn Clark

EXTREME SHAKING AHEAD

America is under attack from within….the enemies are stubbornness, rebellion, cultural idolatry, and hatred.

Christians somehow believe they can be in agreement with abortion, sodomy, bankruptcy, and greed. The changes that seek to sweep our nation are earthly, sensual, and demonic. The greatest shock to me is that people who go to church and worship seem proud of these things and fiercely defend such defection from and opposition to the Word of God.

I have never been one to pray for Jesus to return. I do now, but more than that pray for the Fire of God to fall on every pulpit in America.

What in this world are preachers preaching?

So many want to blame the President; he is not to blame, but he has helped open doors from below in which others in the religious world already stood….from my perspective, the last two elections (neither of which was honest) have exposed a monster in this nation that others call “Christianity”…..I now call it “antichristianity”.

I thought there were more Christians in the United States.

I was wrong.

Now so many who fancy themselves Believers are locked in competition with worthless politicians, judges, media pigs, apostate preachers, globalists, Satanists, and Communists to see who can first facilitate the destruction of our country.

Some extreme spiritual explosions are being forced by this anarchy among those who profess the Name of Jesus:

1. extreme shaking in all that that can be shaken being shaken
2. extreme repentance or extreme deception/apostasy
3. extreme refreshing/renewal or extreme desolations

We all taste this extreme pressure and are determining which way we will pitch our tents, towards the Lord or towards Sodom.

I have some questions….if indeed, two can’t walk together unless they be agreed and the Lord never changes, and heaven and earth will pass away, but the Word of God endures forever, then,

1, How can I pray for deliverance from death when I am in agreement with slaughter?
2, How can I pray for my generations to be delivered from perversion when I am in agreement with an agenda that institutionalizes it?
3. How can I pray for God to meet my needs and pay my debts when I am in agreement with bankruptcy?
4. How can I ask God to forgive me, when I hate my brother?

I stand in the awesome fear of God in these days, knowing where my help comes from. I know in Whom I have believed. I tremble, seeing what I see and knowing what I know. I have many thoughts that are troubling….we have seen all this before.

History is repeating itself.

Achtung, mein bruders!

“The Shaking And The Dawning Day”

 

Dear Friends,

I WANT YOU TO KNOW BEFORE YOU READ, THIS IS THE MOST SPIRITUALLY DIFFICULT NEWSLETTER I HAVE EVER WRITTEN.  APPROACH THIS READING WITH PRAYER.
 
Consider the following Scriptures:
 
2 Corinthians 2:14-16New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
Luke 10:1-3New King James Version (NKJV)
10 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also,[a] and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.
God bless and keep each one of you in these incredible days of trial and triumph! I have never seen greater opportunity for the Kingdom of God in the face of stiffer opposition in my life…..

…..so many in the valley of decision making tragic and impulsive error in their lives.  The spirit of antichrist strives with the Spirit of Christ in the Church here in America. People have itching ears and callous hearts….the darkness masquerades as the Light and no one seems to take it to heart that even Satan appears as an angel of light.
 
Years ago many people living in sin were not proud of their actions…some even tried to dissuade others from joining them. Now misery definitely loves company and old sin is the new righteousness in much of what is called the church; the harlot rides upon the beast that will one day eat her alive.

The Truth is seen as malicious and suspect, even among avowed believers.  I am stunned. My generation is a dying breed.  We must live a long while for the sake of those coming who will hunger and thirst after righteousness, the Word of God, and not synthetic pablum fueled by greed, the spirit of antichrist, and the God of this world. Our present generation will not endure sound doctrine.
 
There is a people coming with hungry souls to whom every bitter thing pertaining to the Lord will be sweet; now those of full soul despise His ways and loathe even His honeycomb. They will soon be empty and I wonder how many He will hear when they cry, after being ignored for so long?

God has a Plan….it has not changed.
 
He always has His Plan.
 
Good overcomes evil.  Anyone with a heart and a conscience groans and travails with all of creation…we see the martyrdom of our brethren throughout the Moslem and Hindu world. We see all things Moslem whitewashed, and the planned destruction of Jewry worldwide blatantly proclaimed with the seeming full sanction of the whole earth.

America has been raped by her Moslem and Communist lovers within and without, and robbed blind for a cause that is earthly, sensual, and demonic; this violation has been applauded by those who will soon be destitute because of it (all hail to the humanist sycophants who’ll soon be caught without their pants) while the mourning of common sense is ignored.
 
Basic intelligence is now seen as a cultural detriment.  Decency and morality are considered evil.  It is sad beyond words…..
 
….but God has a Plan.

The nation is bankrupt, demoralized, fractured, undefended, and at war on many fronts. Amazingly the top national priorities are abortion unfettered (which has basically become infanticide and genocide), the promotion of the total package gay agenda, the Islamification of the country, and the surrender of our borders to whoever will. It seems like madness but it is the planned deconstruction of the nation. Drop the name-calling: this is not poor leadership; it is brilliant sabotage riding on the hearts of the dearest aspirations of millions of uninformed Americans.
 
I KNOW WE ARE GIVEN TO STRONG DELUSION WHEN THE KILLING OF BABIES IS CONSIDERED COMPASSIONATE AND THE SAVING OF BABIES HATEFUL….

The enemy hates the children of America so much, to insure their destruction he seeks to make sure those who survive the womb are force-fed sodomy and witchcraft. It is utter destruction and strong delusion by those who love a lie rather than the truth. The blood lust for the lives of children is a pure manifestation of antichrist.
 
There is no money to provide medical care for our veterans but huge hospice facilities are being built at VA Hospitals….doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see where this is going.
I heard a senior defense analyst and researcher say publicly that everything he had worked for professionally to defend this nation for forty years has been destroyed in the last six.
Truth has become a relative factor dependent on the demand of the moment….perilous times indeed. The rule of law has become the plying of a devious craft and trade. Justice is not blind; she is possessed……
 
…….but God has a Plan!
 

Thank God that Heaven and earth will pass away, but the Word of God will endure forever! Not one jot or tiddle will pass away and all the Lord’s will is accomplished.
In the face of all this utter demonic foolishness I smile….not sardonically or sarcastically, but with the knowledge and resolve that the Anchor will hold.  God is about to do His Thing the way only He can do it and we must all help.

Sleep has never come easy for me….I usually sleep in stages, but am proud of a few hours of broken sleep.  I often go outside at night. It is no longer safe to walk here at night, and has not been for several years, a great loss to me, but I do like to go out in my yard.
 
Plants have always amazed me. I think it is so cool that plants grow in the ground out of next to nothing and give us food and beauty.

I have a very astute sense of smell along with a penchant for blooming, fragrant flowers that are nocturnal. Let me tell you some things amazing about night bloomers…..they grow aggressively, both bush and vine; the plants take the full heat of our blazing summers; they bloom copiously and have a heady, heavy, intoxicating fragrance, sweet, spicy, lemony: a welcome barrage upon the senses. All the night bloomers I know about have sturdy flowers.
 
A few like Four O’Clocks are small and multi-coloured with a different but delightful odor.

The most amazing are all full, large, showy, radically white, white, white: SO PURE.  These amazing plants take the worst of the elements and produce perfume that is heavenly. Their blooms are to be captured, felt, and smelled repeatedly. Their white beacons stand like radiant lights in the darkness and will not be there for long.  Sometimes they are seen first, then smelled, but usually the first deep breath one takes in the night air will guide the eyes to the source of such delight.

The individual blossoms last for one night…some blossoms turn into a durable, sometimes thorny seed pod that has many seeds: the plants bloom continuously throughout warm weather.

I will go out tonight and search for the aroma of heaven in these flowers.

Last night they were beginning to open in the dusk….they were gloriously open at 4 AM. I was reveling in these moon flowers of different types and the Lord spoke to me. We Christians here, although we are temporarily so daunted by the pressures we face from this world and the god of this world, are created to bloom and to shine as lights in the darkness and to release the aroma of Heaven, of Jesus Christ, to this stinking, rotten, dying place.
 
2 Corinthians 2:14-16 New King James Version (NKJV)

14  Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
We are not of the darkness but of the Kingdom of Light….it is the Light which exposes the darkness. We will soon be shining brightly against the backdrop of this world and all that is in it.
We are, after all, God’s Garden and Vineyard. Just as in these amazing plants, it is in our spiritual DNA to prosper in harsh elements, to become pure though the Grace of God and our submission to His Will. His Kingdom does not fade or go away in adverse circumstances.  The Church has increased over the last two millennia despite pressure—He leads us in triumph and diffuses Himself through us:
 
It is the mystery of Christ; it is God’s Plan. 
 
Matthew 5:13-16   New King James Version (NKJV)

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
We are going to shine like lights in the darkness…it is part of The Plan.
 
There is a really good reason God did not want man to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil…
 
The hardest thing about living in a fallen world is knowing what you have to know to survive and make your way in this mess, realizing you were never created to know such things and that you should never have known if the world was not fallen…..we are not sufficient for these things. The most wonderful thing about living here is God so loved this fallen world that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life.Goddoes not condemn us because we are broken and defiled by what we should never have known if the world was not fallen…..He sent Jesus to pay the penalty, bear the burden, be our Substitute to save us.

Wow……what kind of Love is this?

There is a world coming that will be as everything was intended to be from the Beginning. It will be all worthwhile. For now we see darkly and He has borne our griefs and sorrows. He is the Only One worthy to take the Book and open the seals thereof.

Behold the Lamb of God Who comes to take away the sin of the world! He is the One was dead and is alive forevermore, and of His Kingdom there shall be no decrease, and He shall reign forever and forever….

…..and in the meantime, we stand….because God has a Plan!
 
We also struggle under the leadership of people bound with chains of darkness and bondage, both in the Church and the secular arena, who are vainly trying to create an alternate reality than the Word of God. When people are bound with chains of darkness of any kind, they are slaves. They might be slaves to hatred, vengeance, false religions, rebellion, you name it.
 
The Bible says that when a slave rules, the land trembles, Proverbs 30:21-23English Standard Version (ESV)

21
Under three things the earth trembles;
under four it cannot bear up:

22
a slave when he becomes king,

and a fool when he is filled with food;

23
an unloved woman when she gets a husband,
and a maidservant when she displaces her mistress.

Whenever anyone who is in slavery to folly, unforgiveness, blind ambition, greed, or any other bondage comes to great power, authority, wealth, or influence, the lives of others tremble…..such flow in a mantle and under an anointing that is not from Heaven but from the vent of Hell. A door of darkness is opened. They have demonic favor for a hard season that is earthly, sensual, and demonic. Everything and everyone around them under their influence is under a strain that is tangible.

 
Light gives life; darkness takes. The world loves those destructing in darkness and hates those who choose to LIVE.
 
Such miscreancy is a beast who devours, an unstable tyrant with feet of clay and iron mixed. It can not stand for long, but oh the sorrow! The kingdoms of the earth are trembling under the dominion of angry slaves, their thrones opposed to the Highest Heaven, striving hopelessly to build a world with no Light.

JOB 12:23-25…”HE MAKES NATIONS GREAT, AND DESTROYS THEM;

HE ENLARGES NATIONS,AND DISPERSES THEM. HE DEPRIVES THE

LEADERS OF THE EARTH OF THEIR REASON; HE SENDS THEM

WANDERING THROUGH A TRACKLESS WASTE. THEY GROPE IN

DARKNESS WITH NO LIGHT; HE MAKES THEM STAGGER LIKE

DRUNKARDS.”

 
One of our systemic problems in American Christianity is that we are so caught by the soul in a culture terminally opposed to God and all that is sane and Holy; subsequently we have to consciously fight confusion and chaos in our being.  We skate on the melting ice of a world gone awry with the work ethic of our ancestors driving us onward, believing with all our hearts if we just work more and try harder everything will be fine.
SO MANY OF GOD’S PEOPLE ARE WORKING THEMSELVES INTO DEPRESSIVE DISOLLUSIONMENT TRYING TO MAKE THIS WORLD WORK AS IT ONCE DID.
 
As a result good people who are motivated are driving themselves into distraction trying to fix life under their own power and they are not “making it happen”.
 
DO NOT MISTAKE MY POINT! I AM NOT ADVOCATING LAZINESS. I am sick at heart over Christians who cohabitate and have children out of wedlock so they can get a check. God will judge this madness along with our humanistic man-made messes far too soon. The national mentality of unfettered entitlement will fall horribly and die a dissolving death before the whole earth.
 
It will be a cruel world.
 
My point is I believe many true Christians are in denial and fear about what our world really has become and call their fear and denial “faith” to dull the warning cry of the Holy Spirit within…..all that is in this Babylon system, the lust of the eyes and flesh, and the boastful pride of life is in direct opposition to the Kingdom of God. This tumbling, free-fall world devours fiercely but has unstable feet: it consumes the lives and enslaves the souls of man while singing the song ” I Will Last Forever”, but it will not stand.
 
God sent Jesus to save men out of this world, not to condemn them with this world….the Son of God sets the souls of men held captive by NOTHING free: ALL THAT OPPOSES GOD IS NOTHING! WE HAVE BEEN SLAVES TO NOTHING!
 
This “fear faith” has caused people otherwise inclined to the counsel of God to consider any warnings about preparing one’s heart or falling away or enduring hardness as good soldiers to be negative and anti-faith. This is like not knowing how to swim and resisting those trying to teach one to swim as being an attack of heretical negativity, even when a wall of water is seen rapidly approaching.

I never believed that trimming one’s wick and keeping one’s lamp full could be construed as “false teaching” or “anti-faith”!
 
This is a setup for disaster as many are convinced their “faith” is bigger than the inevitability of what is written in the Bible coming to pass.  Many are falling away now because of current financial pressure…I do not mean to be negative, but the root of Christ is shallow in many because of the lack of teaching and the lack of consecration. The belief that it is never the will of God for Believers to go through hard times will take many down when The Trouble comes. 

This Pollyanna zeitgeist  has already mushroomed into false prophets speaking lies on religious television. I know in my “knower” than when state policies mandate the implantation of computer ID chips that famous preachers will stand on TV, take the chip, and tell the masses, “This is not The Mark….it is safe to take it.”
 
The shaking will increase in this hour….in the midst of this shaking, all of us are being broken whether we want to admit it or not. Brokenness is painful and frightening.  Most of us have worked so hard to recover from destructive brokenness and have fought like fury to never feel vulnerable again. We have depended on God to be healed from such frailty and vulnerability.

When brokenness comes for the sake of the Kingdom of God it hard to take despite what Scripture says.
 
Some of the great fruits of necessary brokenness are simplicity of heart and dependence on God, peace in the storm, faith that cannot be shaken. Some of the bad fruits are bitter regret, anger towards God, and unbelief.  When our cookie crumbles and we are broken, the outcome depends on which way we throw our pieces, towards the Lord or away from Him.
 
He is with us and for us on this incredible journey—He is not against us:  ALWAYS REMEMBER HE DID NOT ASK FOR THIS WAR AND DID NOT CREATE THIS WORLD TO BE AS IT IS NOW.  HE HAS A MASTER PLAN OF REDEMPTION AND HAS BEEN STANDING FOR ALL OF CREATION, BRINGING IT BACK TO HIMSELF EVER SINCE SATAN ORIGINATED REBELLION AND DESTRUCTION.
 
We did not ask for this fight, but neither did God.
 
I have been contemplating the inevitability of a broken heart in this life…it does seem so unfair.
 
There is a brokenness that other people can’t touch, only God. Others may help you draw near to Him, but He is the Yoke Breaker. Don’t despise His Presence when you need Him the most. Only He can satisfy.One of the great challenges of life is the layering of truth and facts in our lives that periodically comes to the surface over the passage of time. Very often our “real world” is not as it seems, and even the good things we havestood on suddenly appear flawed and unstable. When such times and revelation comes to light, believe with all your heart you are held in His Hand and this revealing Light shining on the dark places is an invitation from the Throne of God to step up Higher.Suicide is never the answer: Church leaders are taking their lives in record numbers! This spirit is sweeping the land and people of discernment are being stricken. THEY SEE THE SORROW WITHOUT SEEING THE GLORY.

If you have ever attended the funeral of one suicide, if you ever allow God to heal the broken heart, you will learn quickly to laugh at the voices that whisper and lure.
 
Running away is counterproductive to any positive solution after being hit in the solar plexus of one’s faith.
 
The only real relief for a Christian under pressure or even persecution is  seeking the Shelter of the Most High and trusting in His green pastures and still waters:  the restoration of soul is a promise that like His Mercy, endures for ever. I guess the pride of man is the stumbling block as we must be led there by His rod and staff.You are not forsaken…..shaken maybe for a moment of time, but the Anchor holds.Take heart in the Eternal promises….it is NEVER wrong to ask God to hold you closer.

Until the Lord comes for us again, we face increasing hardness and opposition in the world, thrust into confrontation by the Holy Spirit with a cosmos that hates God. Gross darkness is revealed and covers the people as the Glory of God covers the earth: the Holy Spirit being poured out on all flesh manifests the heart of men.

Our greatest “diabolos”, or strategy of the the enemy, we face in these Latter Times is the satanic spirit of antichrist gilded as the new normal for mankind.
 
This is coupled with a hatred for all that is holy.
 
We all soberly and sorrowfully ponder the martyrdom of our brethren throughout the 10-40 window.  I recently got word of a Christian relief group trying to assist Iraqi Christians:  a city was taken. The children of that city were rounded up and systematically beheaded. I assume this was in front of their parents. 
 
We ask how can God allow this? Little children being butchered for believing in Jesus?
 
What is happening in the world today?
 
Our trouble does not come from God….our trouble comes from people who hate Him.
 
What Hitler did, he started in secret. He had deceived the German people and Europe was awash in appeasement. He was not pouring money into the coffers of the world. The world stood aghast when the truth was revealed and went to war to defeat him…..
 
Now nearly 70 years later the tables of conscience that united the world in resisting evil are turned to destruction.
 
What the Moslems do they do in the face of the world and boldly declare their objectives: kill all Jews and true Christians and place the planet under the yoke of Medieval tyranny.
 
They butcher publicly.
 
They pour oil and $$$$$ into the world.
 
The difference 70 years later: the collective soul of mankind has been sold to antichrist for a few moments of false peace and a bigger bank account.
 
I am having difficulty imagining why so many who fancy themselves Americans and “tolerant” seem to have no trouble with the Moslem madness…..been pondering this, and it hit me yesterday: so much common ground shared…..
 
……they hate Christians and Jews, they hate the real America, they like to exploit and kill women and children or wink at it; they seek to destroy whoever disagrees with them and become irrational and violent when confronted, lying is a part of the mindset in dealing with others who do not agree, and when this fails, they become victims, they exploit the media for an agenda, nothing is sacred that should be, there is no natural affection. There is more, but it gets monotonous. Same spirit. Wild.
 
Antichrist.
 
GOD HAS NEVER TAKEN THE BLOOD OF HIS MARTYRS LIGHTLY.
 
With the continuous slaughter of Christians throughout the Moslem and Hindu world, and now with the instant broadcast of the hideous braggadocio of religious headhunters, this Satanic lust for the blood of the saints is thrust into our consciousness. This time it just will not fade. I have had Scripture caught in the gall of my spiritual craw, a thread of continuum and consciousness.
 
Revelation 6:9-11
New King James Version (NKJV)
When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.
The saints have laid down their lives for the testimony of Jesus Christ from Stephen to the present; the genocide of Christians globally has increased dramatically.  Hard to face as a proud American, but our nation has become the number one facilitator of the martyrdom of our brethren worldwide in the last 6 years.  The opening of the Fifth Seal is a future event. There are some aspects of this we must face as we watch the horror of the purge of Christians from the Middle East by our noble Moslem allies.
 
The butchery of Jews and Christians in the Middle East is nothing new. We have blinded our eyes to ongoing battle for life of world Jewry. We ignore the slaughter of millions of black Christians in Africa by Moslems….MILLIONS in recent years.
 
The world press has not reported that the journalists who have been beheaded on global media are not just Americans, but are Jews.  I have a memory that is too good sometimes. I have watched this my whole lifetime.  In 1985, Moslem terrorists hijacked a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea named “Achille Lauro” and slaughtered an old American Jewish man in a wheelchair…..the man named Klinghoffer was then dumped overboard.
 
Now little children are raped and beheaded while their families look on.
Why? Look again.
Those who have given their lives for the Gospel cry out for their blood to be avenged on the earth.  They are given a white robe. There is also a set number of those who must give their lives for Jesus.  This is part of the mystery of iniquity in the world and the Judgment of God. There is a bowls of prayer and wrath that are being filled.
 
2 Thessalonians 1 New King James Version (NKJV)
1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy,
To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
These are things we are not taught now. When I was a child going to rural Baptist churches, we were often told our Faith in Jesus could one day cost us our lives. When the church comes into a time when persecutions and tribulations are laid upon the saints, it is a time of fullness. It means the Judgment of God is imminent: He pours out His Spirit on all flesh and what is in the heart of man is manifested.
 
God has given man a free will. He chooses what he wants. If a man loves wickedness his heart forsakes the Light. When this reaches a fever pitch, those in darkness seek to destroy the Light so they will not be convicted of their sins. They draw strength and momentum in numbers and agreement in hating the Light.
 
Psalm 37:1-2    New King James Version (NKJV)

37 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb
God rains on the wicked and the just….the same Rain. Each bring forth a harvest, tares and wheat.  I could always tell when the grass needed cutting…..when it grew tall. That is how we know Judgment is near at hand: those who hate God have flourished in His Rain.
They are about to be cut down like the grass.
All the promises of God are yes and amen. This is one of Paul’s admonitions to young Timothy,
2 Timothy 3:10-13New King James Version (NKJV)
10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
I was preparing to go out in preach in late Summer of 2008 on the coast of NC….I was walking in my yard when the Lord spoke something shocking to me.
“From this point forward whenever you stand and preach before people I want you to know that some of those you preach to will be martyrs….I want you to preach and to conduct yourself accordingly.”
My ministry changed radically during those meetings….I began to sing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”.

The Battle Hymn Of The Republic

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 has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish`d rows of steel,
“As ye deal with my contemners, So with you my grace shall deal;”
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

 
It was in those meetings I stopped what I was preaching and told the people there that the Church in America had lost her mind because she chose to ignore the wholesale slaughter of babies, and that the love of money was the real god to our cultural mindset of Christianity.
I was not the most loved preacher on the block.
A lot of Church people have not liked me since then, as my message has changed. The devil has tried to kill and destroy me since, more than ever before. 
All of this is amping up….I know the blood of the first American martyrs will be shed over saving babies.  I know that God will send revival into the gay community and a violent backlash will come…when those who reject the Light begin to burn His churches and kill His Saints, then judgment will come.
Matthew 5:10-12     New King James Version (NKJV)
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
There are things about the Kingdom of God that we do not like to consider, but honestly, such honest thought is not only healthy, but absolutely essential. There is a Cost to be counted for following Jesus. So much is going to happen so very quickly….
The United States has descended to number 55 among the nations of the world in the last 6 years as far as free press is concerned. It does not matter whether it is National Public Radio or Fox News, we do not get the truth.
My point in this is whenever you see high government officials on television saying an attack on an American city is imminent and that we must go to war against ISIS, rest assured, the game plans are drawn up. This is globally huge.  American patriotism is a powerful tool in the right or wrong hands, and I write this sorrowfully.
German patriotism was a powerful tool as well.
Pray for the cities slated for attack—the government has issued a list of the cities they consider at risk.  Also pray that the prostitution of an emergency will not be allowed for political manipulation.  Such is planned.
God’s Hand is not limited….He also has His Plan!
I also expect many warnings and signs to come in nature and in the heavens. I fully expect to see the appearance of a meteor that catches everyone by surprise and strikes great awe in the hearts of mankind.
Most importantly, do not grow weary in well-doing.  I believe GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT is coming to the Saints here in the United States. We will have financial relief for a short season…when this comes be wise. Money still has wings and can fly away. Pray for our brethren who are suffering and if you have the inclination, there are good Christian relief organizations you can sow to: I believe Morningstar Ministries has people on the ground in Iraq.
There is going to be a major shakeup in our government. I expect top officials to do prison time with much chaos ensuing.
This overthrow of the overthrow is going to be multi-pronged and many books will be written about it—the house of cards is falling. The nation will not have much time to stagger due to domestic and global demands for immediate stability and action.
The cost will be enormous. The foundations that have been chipped away will fall to the Bedrock of our beloved America and find stability in much trial.
Many years ago, I had a dream about a beautiful woman who was being courted and seduced by a Moslem man. The dream was a great mystery to me until recent history. In the dream, this woman yielded to the amorous advances of this man, now her lover.
They planned to marry.
He told her that before they married, she must submit to a ritual female circumcision for the marriage to go on. He did not really explain the ramifications of this surgery to her, but smoozed it away as a religious ceremony (you may investigate ritual female circumcision for yourself).
This woman was laid on a great marble altar in the very center the Capitol Building Rotunda of the United States in Washington DC
This was an official event…the Moslem man and every head of state in the world was there. The woman was sedated and draped and the whole word watched this beautiful woman being essentially castrated.
The ceremony ended and the woman awoke from her slumber.
She realized what had been done to her. She began to question her lover. He and all the global heads of state began to laugh at her, mock her, and point their fingers at her.
She began to weep and said to him, “I loved you, I believed you!”
They all abandoned her, and she was sitting alone on that marble altar in the Capitol Rotunda with her female organs maimed. The tear-stained woman said to herself, “I will live, but the pleasure of my life has been taken from me. I will never be the same again.”
I realize now that beautiful woman is the United States of America.  Our great nation has been ravished and mutilated. She will live….and so shall we, but it will be such a different world!
Do not be deceived! Pay attention to the Bible more than what men say about the Bible. Also ask the Holy Spirit to sift all the information you receive about issues of great importance in national and world events. The years ahead will be the best of days and the worst of days.
Above all remember you are part of God’s Plan, an Eternal Kingdom that is ever increasing. We are coming through these perilous times with great assurance and confidence in Him. He has not only prepared a place for us, but opened and kept the way before us,
Hebrews 6:10-19New King James Version (NKJV)
10 For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of[a] love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promise.
13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, 14 saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.”[b] 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 16 For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. 17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might[c] have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.
Plan to stand. Do all to stand, then stand. God has a Plan.
When the night ends and the day dawns, the night is forgotten, and the Morning Glories begin to open, of every color and size. Every kind of bee and butterfly are drawn to them. Weeping does not last forever!
Psalm 30 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Blessedness of Answered Prayer

A Psalm. A Song at the dedication of the house of David.

30 I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up,
And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I cried out to You,
And You healed me.
O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave;
You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.[a]
Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.[b]
For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.
Always keep in the forefront of your consciousness Who God is, Who He is in you, and the outcome of all these things. We must keep our heads lifted up as our Redemption draws near.
 Isaiah 60:1-2New King James Version (NKJV)
60 Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
When we keep our eyes on Him and His Great Plan, all the confusion and the chaos makes more sense. So much of it is distraction. Behold the Lamb of God Who comes to take away the sin of the world….HE is our Shield and our exceedingly Great Reward.
Remain steadfast and immovable in the work of the Lord and pay attention to doctrine. Keep your emotions under the discipline of the Word of God.
Some wonderful and eternal Things never change. There we stand.
Above all, keep your love for Jesus and yearn for intimacy with Him.
My heart is my own domain….others may have pierced it, shaken it, broken it, or disregarded it, but I am it’s keeper and tender. I maintain the walls and pillars and either open or close the doors. This is where I either know the Lord or turn from Him. This is the part of me no one else can really know. The depths and heights and secret chambers are my own kingdom. I alone hold the key. God alone is the One Who really has the right or desires to walk with me in this Secret Place. He invites us all into His Secret Place.
 We have the choice of inviting Him into ours.
We stand on Who is in us when all is shaking around us. Watchman keep your watch and see what He will say to you in the middle of the night.
YOU WILL BEAR HIS STANDARD IN THE DAY OF ADVERSITY….MANY WILL STAND AND BELIEVE AND BE RESCUED BECAUSE YOU BELIEVED AND DID NOT WAVER.
GREAT IS YOUR REWARD!
In Jesus,

Silver Nugget From The Fire and Ministry Updates

 

Dear Friends,

The issues of the heart are between the individual believer and God….this really is the floor exchange for the currency of Heaven. God created man for relationship, then gave All for His crown creation. He wants us to know Him and to deal with Him.

I thank God for Jesus, our Passover!

What can we do without the Blood of Jesus? This whole plan of God hinges on Christ in us, after all!  He wants to inhabit, fellowship with, and be glorified in and through us.

So much is “coming down” in the nation and the lives of His children, so much being shaken to enable us to discern the “forever kingdom”, that City which cannot be shaken. The things which can be shaken must be shaken so we can properly see…I wish it were different. The Empire of man in rebellion to God so seduces the saints, the Kingdom must be plainly seen.

Babylon does babble on.

The nature of man and the essence of God are being manifested in this shaking as we enter into the Revelation of Jesus Christ. God will not change. We must. His Grace is working mightily in us to will and to do His good pleasure. Do not turn away at this late Hour for an unstable tower built to the heavens to oppose God.

It is falling and will fall….clay feet mixed with iron, fierce and unstable.

It is human nature to destroy and to curse that which we destroy simply because it is broken….people scar their mates and children with spite, then, ashamed of their shattered reflectioin, reject their dysfunction as self-generated; we dig holes for others, then mock their bondage because they walk with a limp; we release the forces of Hell through rebellion and vengeance and scorn those we eviscerated, disgusted with their pain and trailing of guts.

Dick Cavett once said,

“If someone ever really does you wrong, they will never forgive you for it.”

Sadly, this is far too true and common. I have observed these things for many years, having been a player in my own soap as well!

No one wants to take responsibility for the shedding of innocent blood, and honestly, bleeding people are offensive to us—unless we are the ones bleeding. It is noteworthy that some can bleed at will, sort of like television wrestlers who secret a razor blade onstage.

It can be convenient.

I have watched many who I believe truly loved God destroy everything around them and fancy themselves the righteous victims. Self-centeredness and seeking views anyone or anything that does not float one’s boat according to one’s own design and desires as unnecessary and burdensome, and hence unworthy and discardable.

I am glad God does not think this way, even though He is the only One with the right.

We really don’t understand the price of the God kind of love–we give ourselves away to the Highest Bidder. He did give everything for us, after all. We are His purchase, off the slave block, when no one else would have us.

2 Corinthians 5:21New King James Version (NKJV)

21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

The Father sold the farm for our ransom; He gave All that Heaven had to give.

I think the biggest problem is that none of us is really willing to accept the reality of an imperfect world and the trauma of brokenness that only surrender to God can cure. All of us have been subject to the plunder of Satan in this life. The temptation is to blame God for this fallen mess and to yield to the vile allure of our best life now.

What now distracts you away from your service to God? I can guarantee it is something that will not endure. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever…for your sake, hold on to what will float if your boat is sinking!

Not all things come from God, but God will cause all things to work together for our good. Human effort is involved in believing…it is our action to trust God in the reality of what is unseen, hoped for, known, in the face of withering circumstances.

There is a warning signal in this shaking……

…….we need to surrender to the will of God, not oppression we have canonized through a religious spirit….this produces such death in us that is not His working, when the pressures and sorrows of this life are equated with the children’s bread from the Father’s Table. 

It is His part to do the impossible because the things that are impossible with men are possible with God.

God will bless just because it is His Nature; He will build that which is destroyed and heal that which is scarred and broken, no matter who did it, because He is the Father of Light and there is no darkness in Him. He can not be tempted with evil, neither tempts He any man with evil.

He blesses people we want Him to destroy; He builds dreams for those we count unworthy. He does this for us as well, in the presence of our enemies.

We often experience the delight of God’s abundance in our lives, but then feel cheated when the euphoria of the mountain top is past and we are building in the valley. Reassert your heart to Christian disciplines and virtues, and run after a course of life that enhances stability in Jesus.  We stand having done all to stand. The problem is we haven’t done all to stand then try to stand. We think the having done all to stand is a one time deal and act like it is too much to do all to stand continually.

2 Peter 1:1-12 New King James Version (NKJV)

Greeting the Faithful

Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Fruitful Growth in the Faith

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 12 For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.

Standing is its own reward…..think about it. We put on the new man in our mind through the knowledge of God.  Remember the basics so close to the Reward; recall your training after having come so far.  We can see and taste Home already!

Let us be quick to endurance, and stop assigning blame, establishing memorials to the damage done, and be about our Father’s business. Part of faith is standing; standing is not boiling in the oil of offenses suffered or the guilt of offenses caused.

It is time to press forward to the Prize…..Jesus Christ!

                                                MINISTRY UPDATES

I will be starting a Bible study on the Book of Revelation this Sunday, July 20th, at 7 PM…the meetings will run Sunday night through Friday night, July 25th, all at 7 PM.  The meetings will be sponsored by Charity Baptist Church here in Dublin, GA. Pastor Jim Fennell will be assisting me in the Bible study.

These will be interactive meetings….come with a Bible, a notebook, and it would help to read Revelation. Since we are living in this Book, it is good to study it!

                                                            UPCOMING LOCAL MINISTRY?

I also am contemplating doing local Bible studies again and will let you know in future letters what my plans are.

Thank you for your inquiries about PayPal….would have not have known it was down without your contacts. I am able to announce the mysterious issues with Pay Pal have been resolved thanks to the diligence of our pastor, Randall Gearhart. He has an excellent blog www.thechurchguy.us

We  can invite you to visit our home church, Emerald City Christian Center, without any reservation…it is a loving ministry of people who love Jesus and one another. We meet at 108 South Monroe St. in Dublin, GA on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM and Thursday night at 7:00 PM. We have a church ministry team that flows in the Gifts and minister effectively.

Glorious Light Ministries started 2014 in the red.  It is not my fashion to make pleas for finances beyond the normal reports on our ministry updates. We shut down one of the ministry houses at the beginning of 2014 because of the need for repairs. Simply, I am not handy and we have not had the money.  I am ok with this for now and have future plans for housing that is more easily maintained.

The Lord is our sufficiency as He is yours.

We understand the times in which we live, but do ask you to pray and seek the Lord as to His will in supporting Glorious Light Ministries. I have traveled since 1986 and have ministered to thousands of people.  I think sometimes God’s people believe unless they are able to give a “significant” gift, it is not worthy: if only a small percentage of the people we have ministered to gave a monthly gift of a few dollars it would make a great difference. I do not write this to put pressure on anyone; is a practical thing and needed.

This is a serious matter for us right now.

As you pray for Glorious Light, I would like to report that I am doing better than I have in years physically, and I credit this to the Lord Jesus Christ and the effectual intercession of the saints. I am still under a doctor’s care, but am able to do things I have not done for a long time.

I know that many of you have prayed for our son, Daniel, for years.  I want to know, with great thanksgiving, that Daniel has given his heart to the Lord Jesus and is truly saved. Again, thanks from a father’s heart for your intercession. This is your fruit in our lives.

Thank you.

You are praying for effectual doors of ministry to open for us….they are, and I ask you to continue to pray. Be in agreement as I have been invited to a conference in England in 2015. I will keep you informed.  We are in need of a newer ministry vehicle that has good adjustable back support in the seats, with leg and recline room. This will make travel much easier for us.

I also ask for prayer for favor with our banks and wisdom for future financial planning, as well as favor with government agencies, both state and federal.  We need miracles of breakthrough like so many of you.

God bless and keep each of you in the power of His Love in Jesus Name,
