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!

                                                            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,

“You are My Forever Love”

Here is the prophetic song the Lord gave me during praise and worship at our home church, recently. My wife, Nancy, flows in the Anointing so beautifully on the piano, even a donkey could prophesy! We are God’s forever love and we don’t really understand the depth and scope of His Love and eternal plans for us, His beloved children.

These are days to rest in His Love and to press on to know Him more intimately. Many waters will not overflow His love. The Lord has sworn by His Name and by His Word to sustain us. He has gone beyond the veil as the Anchor of our soul.  This is the season to stand–and after having done all, to stand.

MINISTRY UPDATE AND EXORTATION

Friends,

 

God bless each of you. 

 

First of all I would like to thank our Pastor, Randall Gearhart, for setting up my new blog, www.vaughnclark.org. He is working to fix the problem with Pay Pal as well. What a blessing he is!

 

Here are some upcoming meetings:

Ministry in Perry, Georgia 

I will be speaking one service only at the 10:30 AM meeting on June 29th, at:

Living Faith Family Worship Center
304 Lee St.
Perry, GA

I would ask that you pray I would preach true to the Word of God and flow accurately in the gifts of the spirit. I also ask that you pray for our finances and for safe travel for all who come and go with no retaliation.

I am excited about this meeting. So many ministers have heard of me, but assume I will not come to preach because the church is small. I do my best to be led by the Holy Spirit about the meetings I do, but have never not gone because of the size of the church.

One of my personal requests is that you would let ministries and pastors know about Glorious Light. God showed me in 2012 that He would be opening doors for me to the next generation of ministry.  I believe the greatest challenges are ahead, but also the greatest fruit and outpouring. I have no greater joy than to see others succeed in ministry.

Please get the word out about an upcoming Bible study and discussion on the Book of Revelation. I will be doing this Bible Study with Pastor Jim Fennell who will host this at his ministry:

Charity Baptist Church

599 Valambrosia Rd.

Dublin, GA 31021

Phone:(478) 272-1222

 

Pastor Jim and I have been discussing this for over a couple of years. He has a proven ministry in the Word which God has proven down through the years with revival and healings. The meetings will be Sunday July 20th-Friday July 25th, all

at  7:00 PM  There will be a time in each meeting for questions and answers and we are all looking forward to learning more about God’s Word.

Jesus will be exalted and we will grow in Grace together!

True Christians must face that division is here and the rift growing wider daily, due to the Apostasy. We are in the Falling Away spoken of in the Word of God,

“Now we beseech you brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him, that you be not troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition….2 Thessalonians 2: 1-3

This Falling Away seems sudden and it is intense…so many seem shocked….it has been building since the 60’s with increasing momentum. Now international ministers are declaring the gospel of the antichrist. We do not see him yet, but the spirit of antichrist is in full swing.  It seems now that everyone is saved without needing to acknowledge or receive Jesus. There is now no sin, according to the apostates, no need for a Cross, or a Savior, and that good people go to Heaven for being good, not the Blood of Jesus.

Disagreeing with the anything-goes-theology-and-big-tent-Church-view now verges on hate speech….the good news is that Jesus is God, He saves, He heals, He delivers and is not dented by mockery.  I weep for the many who sincerely believe they are part of a “new move”; they are ignorant and do not know the Word, and are so easily led astray by winds of doctrine and false teachers.

Always remember the Spirit and the Word agree. There is no new teaching, no new doctrine. Stand on the Rock. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. This is not legalism, but reality. The Holy Spirit is exciting, the forthcoming Word of the Lord powerful and mighty, but there will never be disagreement with the written Word if it is inspired by the Holy Spirit.

NEVER.

NEVER.

My daughter, who is a young minister, was recently confronted by a “minister” who was a pseudo-intellect. He boasted that he did not own a Bible and asked my daughter a series of questions that were provoking and demeaning about her stand on a number of issues. Then he pronounced that she worshipped the Bible.

My wise child told him that since Jesus was the Word, and she worshipped Jesus, that she did worship the Word as the Word became flesh and came to us. She informed him she did not worship the book, but worshipped Jesus.

This kind of foolishness is the essence of why people are running into ditches and believe they are right in the center lane of the King’s Highway.

By the way, this man had a religious demon that manifested and confronted the Spirit of God in my daughter….my advice to her was not to cast any more pearls before that swineherd.

My advice to each of you is to be like the Berean Christians….take what you hear and take it to the Word of God.  Do not allow yourselves to become beguiled by the lure of most television ministry these days. There is an infatuation with empire but not with the Kingdom of God; in this hour the most serpentine of alliances are being forged as global church leaders force themselves to sit at table with demons that masquerade as champions of unity and love, which in actuality is an open vent from Hell of ecumenism and diabolical charade.

Do not forget the warnings of Jesus….if possible even the very elect will be deceived.  The Latter Times are making very strange bedfellows among leaders that multiplied millions of Christians will not question because of stature and scope of ministry. This is being played out under our noses, but few seem to be willing to allow the prompting of the Holy Spirit to ask hard questions and to adhere to the Word of God.

I have seen this snare horrible illumined on television in front of millions….as long as there is an audience, a venue, and a following that seems to be all that matters.

Keep this matter close to your heart before the Lord with all diligence and realize the closer we get to the end of days,  the narrower and more difficult the passage will become.  Last night, the Lord gave me a prophetic song during praise and worship at our home church: my wife flows in the Anointing so beautifully on the piano, even a donkey could prophesy! I hope to have that on this blog soon, but the meat of it was that we are God’s forever love and we don’t understand really the depth and scope of His Love and planes for us eternally.

These are days to rest in His Love and to press on to know Him more intimately….many waters will not overflow love.  The Lord has sworn by His Name and by His Word to sustain us. He has gone beyond the veil as the Anchor of our soul.  This is the season to stand after having done all to stand.

The key to standing is having done all to stand and to continue to do all to stand. It is not grim determination. We all have lapses in which the Lord Jesus carries us through inspite of ourselves. Even father Abraham was detoured for years by disobedience.

Keep your confidence in the Lord….so much good is ahead, even in the Presence of our enemies.  God is about to show off and He alone has the right to boast Himself. How pathetic man must be when he tries to throw God off in his rebellion! Mockers will mock….Enoch prophesied so,

Jude 1:14-25

New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

Apostates Predicted

16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.

Maintain Your Life with God

20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction; 23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

Glory to God

24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
25 To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
Amen.

Press on beloved!  Fill your soul with the Truth and prayer. The Lord will keep you from stumbling. God has kept the best wine for last!

Look forward to fruitful service and the Glory of God in this life and trust that He has prepared a table for us in the Presence of our enemies. H!e has so much more for us to see and to do!

1 Peter 1:1-9

New King James Version (NKJV)

Greeting to the Elect Pilgrims

1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,

To the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:

Grace to you and peace be multiplied.

A Heavenly Inheritance

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.

I believe more than ever that the mercy and longsuffering of God through Jesus Christ are being manifested in the love of God through the saints towards one another and this lost world. I see it more clearly and purely than every before.

We do not grasp this, but with the intense persecution of our brothers and sisters in other countries, we are constrained in our hearts and suffer with them in the Spirit…we are one. God is the Father of one Body in Heaven and on the earth. We are joined to every other true believer. Learn to worship and pray and intercede, not trying to fathom every mood and feeling as purely self-generated.

Consider the following exhortation to church leaders and all Christians:

1 Peter 5: 1-11

New King James Version (NKJV)

Shepherd the Flock

5 The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

Submit to God, Resist the Devil

Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for

“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

We are all in this together…do not strain. Give yourself to the peace and assurance of confidence and trust in God.  This world has reached a state of frenzy…..the Kingdom of God has not. Pay particular attention to verses 6-10…..

We must humble ourselves before God in difficult times….He cares for us. We can boldly enter in to His Throne and cast our care on Him. He will exalt us in due time.

The devil is predictable. We must resist him. His attack will end. We must realize that we are part of a Body and when one part suffers we all suffer.

It is amazing to consider, but I believe the root of much melancholy and heartache we do not understand.

What we face has a beginning and an end…it does not go on forever. It is finite. God will deliver and not only deliver, but establish and exalt us. We are not sufficient for these things but Christ in us is. I honestly believe that part of the mystery of Christ is that God protects and provides for us and it just drives the devil and his folks nuts. I believe that is Psalm 2 and Psalm 91 all over!

One of the things we must face as Believers is that our system is in rebellion to God and that some form of totalitarianism seeks to dominate our nation. I do not know what the outcome will be, but my personal belief is it will crumble, be the source of much anger, despair, and heartache, but the nation will rally and face great opposition from foreign powers, even war.

We believers sometimes arm ourselves for conflict we are not equipped for, called to, or prepared to fight…we don’t understand. I am not into milk toast passivity and false peace. I also am not an anarchist. I take the Scriptures seriously….consider the following,

1 Peter 2:17

New King James Version (NKJV)

17 Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.

We can bind ourselves to trouble that is not necessary.  We are to honor everyone we can. We are to love other Christians. We are to honor secular leaders as much as possible.

We are also to speak the Truth, not vent anger. There is much that many who are called do not speak for lack of an audience who cares to listen….I CALL YOU TO THE BOLDNESS OF CHRIST IN JESUS NAME!

I do not know what we must endure for the Name of Jesus Christ in the days ahead, but I do know the Roman Empire did not cause Jesus to flinch when He fulfilled His earthly ministry in the occupied territory of Judea.

I also know that in these days when the national debt and government spending has exceeded our output, that God is not only our Protector but Provider as well.

As you worship and pray, remember that He gave everything for you and loved you and I when we were most unlovely and unlovable. You are His forever love…

Find the peace and quietness of your soul with Him….He is your Garden. Go there often and learn….lean on Him with all of your understanding.

This Fire will not consume you, only burn every fetter and the smell of smoke will not be on you.

Read the Book and smile a lot.

Pray for us, for God’s leadership and guidance in our life, for our health, and for our finances and direction.

God bless and keep each of you. I believe with all my heart this is a season of answered prayer and reunion for family members. The Lord is pouring out Grace in the face of this present darkness.

This is a reprint of “LORD HAVE MERCY” from OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2007

Glorious Light Ministries
PRAY FOR THE CITIES Oct-Nov 2007

Have Mercy Lord,

I have been traveling the last couple of weeks in Oklahoma and Texas with a theme growing in my heart–AMERICA BEWARE! My heart has been deeply challenged by the Holy Spirit for the need to consecrate myself, to be delivered from indulgence, to reassert my total dependence on the Lord. He is the only true Shelter and Hiding Place we have.National insanity seems to be the policy of our lawmakers concerning Moslems and Israel. I have watched what was left of the moral fiber of our country unravel since 911. America is the only country in the world who would suffer such atrocity from Moslems to then impress tolerance of Islam on her citizens, force school children to study the Koran, and simultaneously blaspheme Christianity continuously, while doing everything possible to assist Moslem terrorists in dividing Jerusalem and the tiny nation of Israel.

Anytime you hear of the formation of a Palestinian state with ceded Israeli territory, please keep in mind that this almost minuscule country is 37 miles wide at her narrowest point, and about the size of Rhode Island. Look at a map occasionally and view the millions of square miles of available land around Israel controlled by huge, wealthy Moslem nations.

A modern country with a complete infrastructure could be carved out of these nations easily for the Palestinians. Never forget the goal is not a Palestinian State, but the absolute destruction of the Jews. The spirit of Hitler lives.

Every time our government has forced Israel to give up territory, horrible disasters have hit our blinded nation, which are, in my opinion, a desperate wake-up call we have ignored.

As crazy as it sounds, Americans have converted to Islam in record numbers since 911. Concerned citizens who have reported suspicious folk to the authorities have been villainized by the press; Christians have been blamed by secularists for these attacks because of our support for the nation of Israel.

We forget that Senator Robert Kennedy was a shoe-in to be our next president when he was shot down by militant Moslem assassin Sirhan Sirhan in 1968 in a carefully planned plot. Sirhan “executed” Robert Kennedy in the name of Allah, in retaliation for his unabashed admiration of, and support for the Jewish State of Israel.

I wonder objectively where are the combined might and voices of the Jewish filmakers, journalists, and industrialists, many of whom sway global empires and command the respect of governments? Are they so secular they agree with the vilification of Jews, and American Christians? Do they not speak for fear?

Only a few weeks ago, the American voter rose at a grass roots level to force the government not to dissolve the borders of our beleaguered nation through the heinous Amnesty Bill. Untold millions of illegals would have been given a sure ticket to citizenship with sudden political control the pot for unscrupulous globalists. I do not mean to be alarmist, but the majority of politicians were for this horrendous sell-out of the country. If you want a wake-up, do a word search on NAFTA Superhighway.

At the same time, our leaders are negotiating with the UN to give up control of large portions of our military. Nothing less than national suicide seems the mantra of media and government.

We should be begging God to protect this nation. We are at war, with the possibility of a global conflict erupting at any moment. It is common knowledge that Moslem terrorists are on American soil. We have the longest undefended borders in the world, both North and South. The Lord Himself has been our defense, but we are slapping Him in the Face continuously. Just this month, the American House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to honor the Moslem faith officially and the celebration of the Moslem holy month of Rammadan. Our president has openly stated admiration for the Moslem faith and has touted the anti-Christ mantra that all faiths pray to the same god.

Simultaneously the American House of Representatives overwhelmingly refused a measure to honor the Christian faith and the Christian celebration of Christmas. Treasonous Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, openly consorted with Moslem leaders who support terrorists on how to influence the next election, but refuses to put “In God We Trust” on Capitol flag certificates because of the supposed separation of Church and state. I have wondered if anyone besides me thinks this is beyond insane?

The following quotes in this newsletter that are not Scripture, are from a Christian magazine, “LAMPLIGHTER”, a publication of Lamb and Lion Ministries in McKinney, Texas. I believe that many Christians are in denial about, and most Americans ignorant of, the true nature of Islam–it is my believe it is religiously the purest manifestation of the Anti-Christ spirit on the earth. Culturally, I believe American and Western secularism is an evil twin.

A great deal of hoopla was made by pro-Islamic forces in our country over the fact that founding father, Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of the Koran, or Quran. He was obliged to know what made one of the greatest enemies of our emerging nation tick. The following is taken from page fifteen of the May-June 2007 issue XXVIII of the above stated magazine, as follows:

“…His ownership of this volume was most likely associated with his attempt to better understand one of the initial enemies of the new American government–namely, the Islamic Barbary Pirates who preyed on commercial vessels off the coast of North Africa. These pirates were notorious for their slave trade. They pillaged villages along the coast and commandeered vessels on the high seas, seeking both booty and slaves.

When the American colonies rebelled against British rule in 1776, America merchant ships lost the protection of the Royal Navy. Since there was no American Navy, the nation’s ships were attacked with ease and their crews were enslaved.

The situation became so serious that the Continental Congress decided in 1784 to try to negotiate treaties with the Barbary states. A special commission consisting of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin was appointed to oversee the negotiations.

The Compromise Approach

Adams favored paying tribute to secure safe passage for American ships. Jefferson was opposed because he believed that bribes would only whet the appetite of the pirates. He proposed that they form a league of trading nations and settle the matter ‘through the medium of war.’

In 1786 Jefferson and Adams met in London with the ambassador of the “Dey of Algiers,” the leading Islamic warlord of Algeria. At the time, Jefferson was ambassador to France and Adams was ambassador to Great Britain. During the meeting, the Americans asked the Islamic ambassadors why Muslims held so much animosity towards the United States. They later reported to the Congress that the ambassador told them:

That it was written in their Quran that all nations
who should not have acknowledged their authority
were sinners and that is was their right and duty to
make war upon them wherever they could be found, and
make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and
that every Muslim who should be slain in battle was
sure to go to Paradise.

Congress decided to pay tribute, and millions of dollars were paid to the Muslims over the next 15 years. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to 20 percent of the American government’s revenue in 1800!

The Confrontational Approach

After Thomas Jefferson’s inauguration as President in 1801, he decided that the time had come to end American payments. He stated that he was no longer willing to acquiesce to the ‘humiliation of paying a tribute to those lawless pirates.’

In response, Tripoli declared war against the United States (and Algiers threatened to do so), thus constituting America’s first official war as an independent nation. Jefferson responded by declaring that America would spend ‘millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute.’ He then sent a group of frigates to defend American interests in the Mediterranean.

The American ships bombarded coastal areas while the Marines landed and fought to capture towns, ultimately resulting in the surrender of Tripoli, a military victory enshrined in the Marine Hymn with the words, ‘From the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, we will fight our country’s battle on the land as on the sea.’

Ted Sampley, in an excellent article in the ‘U.S. Veteran Dispatch,’ summed up the conflict and its modern day significance very succinctly in the following words:

Jefferson had been right. The “medium of war” was
the only way to put an end to the Muslim problem.
Mr. Ellison was right about Jefferson. He was a
“visionary” wise enough to read and learn about
the enemy from their own Muslim book of Jihad.

Nothing has really changed since the days of Jefferson. Islamic fundamentalists still aim at taking over the world for Allah. They are still willing to die for the cause of Jihad. And the only thing they still respect is power.”

I believe as American Christians we must fly the banner of Jesus Christ first, but also stand in reality about the combined military and spiritual threat to our nation from Islam. There hatred of us is not financial nor military, but is rooted deep the in the realm of the spirit in the very genetics of Islam, and the Covenant Promise of God through Abraham. This is a war between brothers, one of whom had the Covenant blessing, one who did not. This is a major conflict of Christ and anti-Christ.

Everyone knows the account of patriarch Abram, the promise of an heir, and his wife, Sarai’s cultural attempt to fulfill God’s Word through her handmaid, Hagar. Ishmael was the resulting son. Hagar ran away due to Sarai’s jealousy; the Angel of the Lord appeared to the pregnant slave and gave this startling prophecy over the unborn child,

“Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, ‘I will multiply your descendants exceedingly, so that they shall not be counted for multitude.’

And the Angel of the Lord said to her: Behold you are with child, and you will bear a son. You will call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”–Genesis 16: 10-12 NKJV

An American missionary who spent his lifetime in the Middle East shared these Scriptures with me many years ago. He told me the only time Moslems stopped killing one another was if they were fighting invaders, or killing Jews. The hatred of life is a religious fervor among Moslems that is ancestral and territorial.

Look at the Scripture after God visited the patriarchal couple changing their names to Abraham and Sarah. Isaac had been born, and a few years later, weaned,

“So the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the same day that Isaac was weaned. And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, scoffing. Therefore she said to Abraham, ‘Cast out this bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.’ And the matter was very displeasing in Abraham’s sight because of his son. But God said to Abraham, ‘Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called. Yet I will also make a nation of the son of the bondwoman because he is your seed.'”–Genesis 21: 8-13 NKJV

We are bound to a conflict that is ours by inheritance as Christians from our fathers, the Jews. The following vignette of God’s selection of Isaac sets the nail into the acceleration of world events.

“Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, ‘Abraham!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’ Then He said, ‘Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love…..'” Genesis 22 1-2a NKJV

It will never become apparent to a non-Jew or non-Christian, but God chose Isaac as the “only son of Abraham” and decried Ishmael as the “son of the bondwoman” and Abraham’s natural son. Isaac is the child of promise. Herein lies the ancient global struggle.

Then there is the de-Christianization and false peace movement in our own society…

We have become a weary, dull, and sensual people given to our appetites and idolatry of self. We seem to have no stomach for the Truth of God’s Word, or even for common sense. It is a sad day in the world when the most practical and inventive nation on earth has no use for common sense, even an apparent disdain for basic survival skills. We have so forgotten our own history, are subsequently ambivalent about the present, and without the absolute sovereignty of God in full possession of our destiny, the future will be determined by those who believe they do God service by destroying us.

I do no mean this sarcastically, but if we have no relevance in history, and the only reality that which suits the immediate, we are hopeless. Consider the following quote from the great British statesman, Winston Churchill, from page 11 of the same volume of “LAMPLIGHTER”, as follows:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are evident in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly methods of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity…

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities…but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith…raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science…the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.’–from Winston Churchill’s book, The River War (1899.”

Sadly, Europe is moribund, or dead in the water as Christendom, and America is not far behind. Christianity is now despised by the strong arms of science, and Mohammedanism, or Islam, is well supplied with weaponry by our own supposed allies, and well financed by our money.
While our politicians and intelligentsia whittle away at the only Foundation we have, and the hope for continual prosperity and peace at any cost play the angst of our corrupt sensibilities, an enemy has arisen within and without.

Amazing that Moslems can blow up their own mosques, behead struggling and defenseless captives on the world-wide web, sexually mutilate millions of little girls with female circumcision, openly declare their plans to destroy Israel and the United States, and still enjoy the favor of politically correct politicians and press.

I do not hate Moslems. I tremble for the plight of those who suffer under the bondage of Islam. I have a dear Moslem friend who invites me to pray for him. I have warned him of the horrible backlash that will come against Moslems in America in the face of another attack. I have told him to hide his family, for the civil authorities will not be able to protect them from the angry fear of ignorant Americans if such an attack comes. All Moslems will be cast into the same mold.

After 911 I had a fearful vision of a future event. It was in a large American city where a huge mosque had been built; an unknown man had commandeered the largest bulldozer I have ever seen, and had welded steel plates over the cage so no one could shoot him–he was taking down this huge mosque while onlookers fired at him.

I do not believe this was symbolic, but a literal event.

The Scriptural pattern for the judgment of a nation that has had a Covenant with and based herself on God, and then turns away is as follows:

1. God sends a false spirit into false prophets and teachers who tell the people they will have peace and prosperity because they are the people of God.

2. The people believe they will be blessed even though they
live in stubbornness, and are drunken with their own will
(God basically becomes in practice who the individual
wants Him to be).

3. The nation becomes weak morally, lazy, sensual, and
wealthy, and at the same time, weak militarily.

4. The nation depends on its own strength and resources;
the knowledge and fear of God becomes a vestigial
offense, a primitive remnant from a less enlightened
time.

5. God allows the rebellious nation to continue in the
outward pursuit of Him while they indulge in pagan
hedonism and persecute those who cling to the Truth.

6. The nation makes alliances with hostile nations in
delusional blindness, selling themselves out.

7. Those nations then come against the people of God to
chastise them and bring them back to repentance.

Read Deuteronomy 28, if this seems harsh to you.

Time may be so short for so many! I hear the cry to sound the alarm, to blow the trumpet in Zion!

Since the beginning of 1997, there has been a constant theme in my spirit, the urging of the Lord to “PRAY FOR THE CITIES FORECAST FOR DESTRUCTION”. This inner cry took on new meaning after 911. I wish I had the tapes of meetings I did from that time. In retrospective, I wish I had done more. I believe this will be the most sincere and sorrowful regret of most Christians in the days ahead.

I have been urged by the Lord to urge Christians to seek the well-being of the cities they live in, but to pray for the great cities of our blessed land. It seems the larger and more prosperous the city, the greater sin and blasphemy is flouted in the Face of God.

Down through the years I have felt to pray for many cities, have had reports from friends of similar inklings–one dear brother had a face-to-face encounter with Moslems in a Western city who were drunkenly boasting of their power with praise to Allah in a public place! I have heard smatterings of official reports of danger in certain locals, but found a book recommendation in Vol. XXVIII of “LAMPLIGHTER” Sept.-Oct.2007 on page 14, which summarized everything I had heard over the last decade. The title of the paragraph is “The Islamic Threat”; the quote reads, as follows:

“A deeply disturbing new book has just been released by author Paul Williams. It is entitled, ‘The Day of Islam: The Annihilation of America and the Western World.’

Williams is a seasoned investigative reporter and former FBI consultant. In this book he maintains that al-Quaida is not content on detonating one nuclear device or even simply a “dirty bomb.” Instead, the intention is to explode real nuclear devices in seven U.S. cities simultaneously. He claims the cities that have been targeted are New York, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Miami, Boston, Houston, and Los Angeles.

FBI Director, Robert Mueller, confirmed Williams’ claim in a recent interview with NewsMax.

‘Men will faint from fear over the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.’–Luke 21: 26.”

I believe we are in a time frame of separation and preparation, to fast, to pray, to intercede. Driving home in one shot on this trip, 23 hours from West Texas, I felt keenly a city would be hit without God’s intervention. I prayed that if He would spare Sodom for the sake of ten righteous, then to please spare our cities for the sake of those therein who love Him, and those who would come who are presently ignorant.

Before I ever read this article, I have been led to pray for over a year my household would be spared radiation, plague, and plundering.

During this ministry trip, I felt the anointing to minister to people in public places as I have not known for many years. Along with this, the fear of God is being restored to me on a new level. I wondered if the many I looked upon who are “wandering as sheep without a shepherd” would be spared? I have pondered if those who, like the Ninevites, fearfully wicked, but so ignorant spiritually and morally they do not know the difference between their right hands or left, would live to see revival and Jesus lifted up?

Just preceding this trip, I was in a Southern state and was contemplating seemingly impossible situations in my own life, and woefully looking at the plight of my beloved America. Everything combined looked so ridiculously hopeless!

The Lord whispered to my heart,

“Do not be a coward, and do not fear; I have prepared for Myself a ram in the thicket!”

Less than 2 days later I stood in a church building and during worship looked at the huge banner the pastor’s wife had created prophetically since I had last been at that assembly: it was on a red background with a magnificent ram with his horns caught in a thicket!

My heart lept within me!

I know there is hope; I know my Redeemer lives!

I am asking those who read this letter to PRAY FOR THE CITIES FORECAST FOR DESTRUCTION, to repent, to forgive, to turn from wickedness of every form. Pray for the safety of my family as I travel.

This is not a time for arrogance or apathy. Do not be casual–seek God for life itself.

As America lifts her skirts so that she can be easily violated by those who hate Truth and hate us, while we nationally flaunt our disregard for His warnings in the Word, we who believe have but one hope for our safety and nation,

“Now therefore,” says the Lord, “Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm. Who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him–“–Joel 2:12-14a.

May the Lord keep you all and be gracious to you. May His Face shine upon you and give you peace.

I believe the turning point has come and He has come calling for America’s past due account with Him. Many avowed atheists will cry out and say, “Oh my God!” in these days and will pray. I hope He does not laugh!

Meanwhile, love the Lord Jesus with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. Reach the lost and stop stumbling in your heart over fear–the Lord is either our Strong Tower and Ever Present Help in time of need, or we make Him an adversary with rebellion and stubbornness.

If you need somewhere to run, run to Him; if you need somewhere to hide, hide in Him!

“You are my Hiding Place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.”–Psalm 32: 7 KJV

“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”–Proverbs 22:3

Remain steadfast and immovable in the work of the Lord. May He allow revival to precede judgment if we are not too far gone. This is my earnest hope and plea.

I do not speak these things idly and realize this letter will not capture me a spot in the limelight. I myself am vulnerable as most of you are to any negative change in our culture’s shaky momentum.

In Jesus’s Name,

Vaughn Allen Clark

MINISTRY UPDATE and EXHORTATION

Friends,

I want to thank those who have responded to the project to do repair and maintenance on the ministry houses, as well as our own. We had a wonderful group of brothers come; they worked tirelessly and we had great fellowship. They were able to finish a half roof on one house.

We have closed one house as of December 2013 for safety’s sake. Pray against vandalism and thievery.

We would like to thank each of you who pray for and support our ministry. I am gaining strength and am driving alone on short trips. I would like ministers in Georgia to know that I am back in the saddle for meetings. My wife drives for me on longer trips.

Pray for me for continued healing and that I will not overdo it in my eagerness. My good wife never complains.

I would ask for prayers that we would be protected…also ask for favor with all financial institutions and government entities.  I pray that your children will be spared from false doctrine and toxic churches; pray the same for mine.  I pray that God keeps you in His Hiddeness.

I do covet your prayers more than you know. We need effectual doors of ministry to open; I am very interested in helping ministers add to their churches. I have a desire to reach the next generation of ministry. The size of the ministry does not matter to God or me, if it is a God connection.

I covet your prayers for our health and for our provision.

I do not place financial requirements on the ministries that call me for meetings. God knows what it takes to float my boat. I simply ask the pastors to tell the people I am coming ahead of time and to ask God what they should do for us financially. I do not take up my own offerings. I have found that if pastors do this, we are blessed.

When we receive notes and letters from you, each request is prayed for. My greatest prayer for you all is that you stand, that you keep your wicks trimmed and your lamps full, and that you do not stumble as our society hates the real Jesus and real Christians.

So many of you are being tested by your loved ones, especially your children, turning from the Faith and being caught in this wicked world. I have a really hard word for you:

DO NOT COMPROMISE THE WORD OF GOD TO ACCOMMODATE THE REBELLION OF YOUR CHILDREN…IT IS AN EVIL SNARE THAT FORCES PARENTS TO CHOOSE. OUR YOUNG PEOPLE OFTEN IDENTIFY WITH SIN IN THEIR REBELLION. THEY TRY TO FORCE THEIR PARENTS TO LOVE THEIR SIN AS WELL AS LOVE THEM. PARENTS ARE EMOTIONALLY BLACKMAILED, AND OFTEN THREATENED WITH THE “LOSS’ OF THE RELATIONSHIP. FATHERS AND MOTHERS WHO LOVE JESUS, YOU WILL NOT SAVE YOUR CHILD BY EMBRACING THEIR SIN. YOU MUST BE DELIVERERS AND NOT ENABLERS…YOUR HEART IS ALREADY BROKEN AND ONLY GOD CAN HEAL YOU AND SAVE THEM:

YOU MAY LOSE THEIR PRESENCE FOR A SEASON, BUT WILL GAIN THEM FOR AN ETERNITY….YOU HAVE TO BE THE PLACE THEY CAN COME TO WHEN THE SEASON OF THE PLEASURE OF SIN HAS RUN IT’S COURSE….

…..AND IT WILL. THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH. YOU CAN NOT HELP YOUR CHILD OR GIVE LIFE TO THEIR SIN BY ENABLING THEM…YOU ONLY BRING MORE DEATH IN YOUR QUEST FOR THEIR LOVE. DO NOT VALIDATE WHAT IS DESTROYING THEM.

I KNOW THIS IS A HARD THING, TRUST ME.

AT THE SAME TIME DO NOT BE BITTER AND HARD-SPOKEN TO YOUR LOVED ONES.

IF THEY SAY THEY HATE YOU DO NOT LISTEN.

PRAY THEY WILL NOT FIND A FALSE PROPHET STANDING IN A PULPIT WHO WILL PREACH THE GOSPEL OF THE ANTICHRIST TO THEM. SUCH MEN AND WOMEN WILL HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL…

…..THE GREAT DECEPTION IS THAT THEY CAN LIVE IN SIN AND BE HAPPY IN JESUS.

NO BODY EVER SAID THIS WOULD BE EASY.

DO NOT BE BITTER….

Matthew 10: 21-22
21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.”

NOW WE DO NOT SEE PARENTS AND CHILDREN DELIVERING EACH OTHER UP TO PHYSICAL DEATH ON A LARGE SCALE. WHAT WE DO SEE IS THE MURDER OF THE SOUL BY CURSING AND WITHOLDING LOVE AND FAVOR.

ONE OF THE GREATEST PAINS IS TO BE REJECTED BY A CHILD BECAUSE OF YOUR FAITH IN JESUS…DEPART FROM LEGALISM AND JUDGEMENT, BUT STAY SO EVER TRUE TO THE WORD OF GOD AND OBEDIENCE TO JESUS.

YOU CAN NOT DESCEND TO WHERE THEY ARE BECAUSE OF HUMAN LOVE, BUT YOU CAN WAIT FOR THEM TO COME UP INTO THE LOVE OF GOD THROUGH YOUR PRAYERS AND HELPING HAND!

Bring Back the Erring One

“19 Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.”—-James 5: 19-20

THIS IS OUR GREATEST PRIORITY AS CHRISTIAN PARENTS…MY PRAYER FOR YOU IS THAT GOD WILL ANOINT YOU WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF GRACE, LONGSUFFERING, AND SUCH GODLY WISDOM. I PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE THE STANDARD BEARER IN JESUS FOR ALL YOUR GENERATIONS, AND THAT GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE DOUBLE PORTION OF BEING AS HARMLESS AS DOVES AND AS CUNNING AS SERPENTS IN JESUS NAME. I DO NOT SPEAK THESE THINGS WITH ANY JUDGMENT…BEEN THERE, DONE THAT.

In Jesus,

Vaughn Allen Clark
