God bless each of you for your gifts and prayers concerning the immediate need of our Missions Director, Matthew Dean Johnson, and our mission partners, Rajah and Mercy Prasad. They are on their way to their next meeting. They are now in South Dakota.
Please pray for favor, blessing, Divine appointments, protection, and provision as they travel across the country. Pray that leaders, church folk, and businessmen will be alerted by the Holy Spirit to their needs and not willfully blind their eyes.
The mission outreach of Glorious Light ministry is developing before me; I am amazed at what God has done through Matthew to bring Rajah and Mercy to the USA. I want to give honor where honor is due. The saints in Reidsville, Georgia have loved Rajah Prasad and his ministry for several years and have supported him faithfully; Matthew went to India for two weeks and came back with a full and broken heart, and has made this his own soul.
I am thankful and amazed, for only God could do this, as I have been unable to go that distance for the present.
This has been a quiet time for me, a Crossroad: I capitalize this because I know I am being held by the Lord, and put into a green pasture and still waters before Him….His Rod and His Staff guide me. I have never not known how to go and to push, and have treated my physical being as an unending resource,
“I have run myself like a hundred dollar car.”, in our Southern vernacular.
This too shall pass.
I am praying for our nation and asking God to prevent more needless bloodshed and mayhem: my mind still reels with all that has taken place, the lack of foresight by civil leaders, and the bald hatred that still lives in the hearts of some.
No one with any pretense of Christianity can believe in white supremacy, vengeance, and the right to shed blood. It amazes me that when a nut with a Cross does something horrible, all Christians are cast in the same lot.
I also am praying for unity among true Christians….I believe there are many.
I know, as I pray, great cultural change is coming to us all. I warn all who read this to warn others that those who live by the sword, die by the sword. The government can’t allow the nation to be torn apart, and force will be met with force.
The wounds of racism are no excuse for vengeance and retaliation either….the people who perpetrated slavery and the decades of injustice are long dead.
I have lived long enough to have seen this before, and I weep, for I know the outcome, and I see a population in this country, so many far from Jesus, who have been taught and believe lies. We who know how to pray must pray, for much is at stake, and much mischief and global meddling are afoot behind the scenes.
I encourage you to walk and ride through your cities and pray, and at home to pray, and ask God to spare your city from civil strife and innocent blood. This is at a fever pitch and is being whipped by media and hate groups whose funding is unquestioned, when it should be the urgent effort of everyone in government and media to expose to the American people the forces at play.
I WEEP, KNOWING PUPPETEERS FROM HELL ARE AT WORK.
I studied the psychology of the mob in college….people lose their inhibitions to do wickedly and take on the spirit of the group. Those who foment such horror for their own gain sit back in the safety of offices and smirk, far away from what they have engineered and enabled, with a plan in place to “bring peace”.
God had me warn of these things many years ago. Satan’s game plan for our nation is to create a Civil Race War, a government unwilling to act, and at the same time attacks from foreign powers against us. Pray for our leaders to have Godly wisdom….those with demonic wisdom have unity to sow confusion and destruction.
There are also unprecedented natural disasters in our near future that will change the landscape completely and will make Harvey seem like a small thing. I do not say this lightly….
GOD’S PEOPLE ARE TOO BUSY ATTACKING ONE ANOTHER TO HAVE UNITY: THE UNITY OF THE FAITH WILL COME, BUT AT WHAT TERRIBLE PRICE?
Ask Him to have mercy on our nation and to bring people to conscience who are working against Him and the honor and dignity of His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
Ask Him to visit those who are blindly led because of hatred and vengeance: this only equates as Blood Lust. The only solution for the curse of blood lust is the Blood of Jesus; if people refuse the healing only the Blood of Jesus can bring to the souls of men, then those possessed by blood lust have to spill blood to be satisfied.
IT IS A DREADFUL CURSE RESULTING IN GENOCIDE UNLESS GOD INTERVENES!
It is that simple spiritually.
It is a disturbing spiritual reality.
If the Blood of Jesus is not enough, then nothing else is. Nothing is enough…..nothing is too much. We become brute beasts in darkness who have nothing to lose.
I also pray for a sweeping revival to cross our nation.
Nothing else will help.
What we see now is the fruit of a secular society who rejected Jesus Christ over 50 years ago. If we are not made in God’s Image, then we do and act as seems best to our fleshly nature which is earthly, sensual, and demonic.
Man, without the restraint of the Holy Spirit, is capable of the animalistic unthinkable.
Satan hated God so much he tried to take Heaven and depose the Almighty from His Throne. God made man in His Image to worship Him, to take fallen Lucifer’s place and position before Him…..Satan so hated God that he has deceived Man, the Crown Creation of Eternity, to hate God and to hate one another.
How willing we seem to be……
In our own small city, religious and civic leaders are working together, asking the Lord to spare our city from madness and hatred. I would implore that Christians in your town look across denominational and racial barriers and pray together: walk the streets of your cities and cry out to God to break the powers of hatred and strife and confusion.
Ask God for His Plan for your town or city to bring people together.
Some protective restraint of the Lord has been removed from our rebellious nation….in that void of the reverential fear of God by Americans, a great gate of Hell has opened. Powerful demons have been released.
Sincere repentance and intercession is needed.
Shortages are coming along with changes in the value of our currency. We have sown the wind and are reaping the whirlwind in so many ways….but God will still take care of His People. The residue of this nation is greater than the bounty of most others.
Sorrowfully, the issue will not be a lack of food and goods, but a lack of money.
These are odd times for me.
Physically, although I am recovering, it is a trial for me to travel. I am still ministering and teaching, and am stepping out by faith as God leads me. Emotionally, my heart is broken for my nation and the condition of the Body. Spiritually, nearly everything I have ever spoken publicly has come to pass already, as well as much I have not spoken publicly, but have held in my heart for decades.
I am being reclused by the Lord.
This is repetition, but it bears repeating. We are entering into SOLSTICE….
There are two solstices a year: one the longest day and the other the longest night. The solstice is when the Sun stands still in its declination for a moment before reversing direction. What we are entering into will be longer than any of us want it to be, a season that will never seem to end.
Depending upon one’s focus, this new spiritual season will be the LONGEST DAY or the LONGEST NIGHT. THERE IS A PAUSE, AND THEN THERE WILL BE A REVERSAL IN DIRECTION!
My advice to the Church…..behold the Lamb of God Who comes to take away the sin of the world. Lock eyes with Him: gaze and keep on gazing.
SEEK HIM LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
Facing this season will throw many into error.
Many will become angry with God because their lives will be disrupted. Others will change their theology to fit the cultural paradigm they want for themselves and believe they have God-in-a-box. Some people will embrace worse deception and strange teaching. Still others will become derelict or castaway, or worse, reprobate.
The closer we get to the End, this is surely happening, as the Word repeatedly warns.
All of this change is fomenting in the petri dish of a culture rapidly unifying into a radical anti-Christian whirlpool that won’t tolerate any voice but their own delusional self-destruction.
The spirit of antichrist wears out the saints….
….BUT THOSE THAT KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL DO VALIANTLY. Again will this season just ahead, and longer than anyone humanly wants, be your LONGEST DAY or your LONGEST NIGHT, dependent upon WHO and WHAT YOUR GAZE IS FIXED?
Too many mature believers have burned out already….tired, disappointed, broken, stubborn, disenchanted. Some have strayed away from vision and identity, gifted people that are sorely needed now. I have a dear friend who lives far away who is uniquely gifted to pick up God’s wounded warriors and put them back in the saddle for the Lord.
Too many ministers have circled the camp and preaching what keeps people inside the circle and not stepping out in that for which God created them.
The Bells of the Body of Christ, healing and deliverance, even the GREATER THINGS promised by Jesus, are beginning to ring and to beckon. I live in one of those rare places left in America where a carillon sounds out the hymns of old from the bell tower of a great church building….every time I hear this I thank God for the beauty and joy of knowing those wonderful old hymns of faith, most taken directly from the Word of God.
It has never not been that way here, as far back as I can remember. Hearing them as a child, meant I got to go to church to learn from my beloved Sunday School teacher or being hugged by our Godly pastor….those days did not last long. I could still hear the bells from home as a little boy, longing to be with God on that special day to me.
I can remember the days of my rebellion, away from the Lord, hearing those soft and beckoning sounds, even then for me, not to a building, but to Him. I remember being comforted and convicted simultaneously….no wonder the world hates the public display of the Cross and the sounds of the Faith!
People who love darkness are now under such withering conviction, the Cross makes them sick and they have to have safe spaces to “protect themselves” from any words that make them face the fact they love the darkness rather than the Light because their deeds are evil.
One day the beautiful carillon here may be silenced by hysterical people….I pray not. But here is the thing no man can stop, even though he may not choose to hear: GOD SINGS HIS OWN SONGS.
Right now He is singing and calling to the Church to draw near to Him so we can hear….He wants to bring us back to our First Love; He wants us to worship Him and live in His Presence, but He also wants to ACTIVATE THE GIFTS HE HAS GIVEN EACH OF US!
There has never been a greater need for discerning Christians to flow in deliverance and anointing and healing to assist the Lord of the Harvest ! The men and women of God must turn to Him and allow Him to direct us outside of ourselves in the Harvest, in discipleship. The whole world groans looking and waiting for Christians to see who they are in Christ and to reveal Jesus to them!
Others have become bitter, and mean, easily offended, given to mockery: if what you believe makes you arrogant, then Jesus is the not the Author of your heart, but some whim of man and snare of Satan that is a short-lived puff not standing against the winds of change. Big-headedness and small-heartedness is the bane of puff-upedness.
Beware that your intellect has not found a resting place that opposes God an keeps you in control…..
UNBELIEF HAS BECOME A VIRTURE AND FALSE FAITH TO MANY AND IS COVERED BY A RELIGIOUS SPIRIT AND FALSE DOCTRINE THAT GUARANTEES AN UNCHANGING WORLD WITH MAN AT THE HELM. It is will worship I fear…..
WE ARE TO BE SALT AND LIGHT AND HEAL THE WOUNDS OF CULTURE, NOT ACCOMMODATE IT.
I believe we are facing several problems in the Body of Christ.
For one we have all but abandoned good Bible teaching and doctrine….I could write copiously on this, but will comment later on the overall paralysis of Christendom here.
Part of it is we are at the End and many won’t bear sound doctrine. There is no correction or repentance in the “New Gospel of the Kingdom”. Repentance is considered to be a dirty word for Christians now.
Secondly, people no longer hunger and thirst for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and His Gifts…..amazing. We have hour long counterfeits for Spirit-filled services, complete with well-scheduled effects, low fiber, low impact, thoroughly convenient.
We have robbed ourselves of The Refreshing so we don’t have to “be ashamed of God” or be embarrassed by what Jesus died to pour out, too dignified for the Holy Spirit.
Christianese now forbids “holy living”….we forget that blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. Part of the Christian life is walking with Jesus and longing to be like Him….
1 John 3:1-3Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
3 See what [an incredible] quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him.
2 Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God’s children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is.
3 And everyone who has this hope [resting] on Him cleanses (purifies) himself just as He is pure (chaste, undefiled, guiltless).
Now people do not long to be like Him or mourn for righteousness without cries of “condemnation”. Abandoning Holy hope is not good….hope is foundational to faith.
I also believe that few people actually counted the cost of being a Christian before they “got saved”. I remember a dear, old pastor from my childhood, when I would go to my grandmother’s church; we kids were usually not far from the front row. I remember more than once him pointing his finger at us with a tear in his eye,
“You children need to understand it is a serious thing to become a Christian….never forget your faith in Jesus might one day cost you your life.”
I never forgot.
Within a few days of becoming a Christian at 23, I had startling visions which I shared with my pastor….he told me to count the cost.
I have never forgotten.
August 2008, my ministry changed forever. I was preaching and while preaching began to sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic….
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
After I sang a couple of these verses in front of a startled congregation, the Lord spoke three things to me which I shared with the folks there…
One was that the American Church had gone spiritually insane, that we loved money more than God and puppies more than babies….
…..the other was that from that meeting forward, I would be speaking to people, some of who would give their lives as martyrs for Jesus Christ, and that He would hold me accountable for what I spoke and how well I prepared the saints for what tribulation they would have to endure to obtain the Kingdom of God.
The people were not pleased with me at all. I counted the cost.
Since that time, my message has changed and my popularity has waned. I know this is repetition to some of you, but this burns in my heart today.
There are a couple of things peculiar to Christians (if we are willing to allow God) and not overtly open to other people. One is to be moved by and be adaptable to the Holy Spirit to be and do whatever suits God’s Purposes when and where ever He designs; another is to bloom and do well where thou art planted.
There are many things we have not faced in America for a couple of generations…
We have not faced forced relocation due to a financial collapse or a huge national disaster…..
We have not faced war fought on American soil…..
We have not faced a national revival since 1851….
We have not faced ourselves…..
We have not faced God.
We have never faced a diaspora because of our Faith or the Judgment of God..
“Time”,….my wonderful grandfather used to answer consistently (how I miss this man and long for the day of our Reunion)
“Time and money”, when asked what he wanted; later in his life, he would answer, “Time”; later he would just smile, the unspoken, “Love”.
Time as a dimension we understand is finite (a result of the Fall) and has a beginning and an end. This ‘dying’ time is actually a corrupted hour glass counting down to all things being placed under the Feet of Jesus.
The Eternal is different…..everlasting, a “time beyond time”. We need to ask God to number our days, to value the time we understand as the greatest commodity we have in this life. Procrastination is suave rebellion and the greatest killer and waster of God’s plans and purposes for the individual, a curse upon the society, and a hindrance to the Kingdom of God.
Complacency is the evil twin of procrastination, and honestly, together, yield either a hard heart that does not care or a shattered heart with pathos of conscience that torments the bearer of these hellish sirens of human nature.
Let us all take heart that God’s Holy Spirit and His Grace and Mercy are working mightily in us to help us redeem these evil days. Let us be about the Father’s will.
Money, rather the love of it, corrupts this whole planet. Satan was in control of a number of things in Eternity past, but the Word hints at one of the things was trade in whatever economy existed,
Ezekiel 28:18a Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
18 You have profaned your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities and the enormity of your guilt, by the unrighteousness of your trade.
Satan originated wicked gain.
The love of unrighteous gain is so great that crime has become an accepted economy among many in our nation. The most grotesque scars on American humanity besides abortion are prostitution and sex trafficking. Sex trafficking has become a major ‘industry’ in the USA in the last decade, while the Department of Justice was asleep at the wheel.
Part of the merchandise of Babylon are the bodies and souls of mankind.
Slavery is alive and well because of the love of money.
Another horrific abuse of the American people, in my opinion, is the sale of life-saving drugs that cost little to produce for hundreds or thousands of dollars a pill and denied to those who would otherwise live.
There are inventions now extant that would cause cars to run on water or by magnetic engines, and our power supply to be limitless, but it would not be profitable or controllable.
GREED WITHOUT CONSCIENCE.
What we need is simple….
Love, LOVE that we fear, the LOVE of God, is the CENTER of our being AND the icing on the cake of the time now and near AND the time beyond time: He carries us from the womb to the grave and beyond, as a father carries his children when they are small.
I wept when my children were too big to carry anymore. I remember it well; I would rather carry them than let them walk just because I knew one day I would not be able.
I wanted to cherish their young childhood in every way possible; I was gone so much.
The greatest act of Faith I knew as a parent was to commit my young adult children totally to God when, in my natural circumstances, I was unable and helpless to deliver them, EXCEPT FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF GOD IN MY IMPOSSIBILITY. He was my only peace and sanity, and MY ONLY HOPE!
Here I raise my “Ebenezer” stone…my stone or remembrance before the Lord
There are stones of remembrance in life we must allow the Holy Spirit to record upon the walls of our being so that we do not forget Him…the MIGHTY DELIVERANCES OF GOD when we threw all we had at His Feet and cried out to Him!
The greatest act of Faith each of us will face as Believers is to totally commit ourselves to God when, in our natural circumstances, we are unable and helpless to deliver ourselves except by the Blood of the Lamb, the Word of our Testimony, and loving not our lives unto the death….the POSSIBILTY OF GOD IN EACH ONE’S IMPOSSIBILITY.
All of Heaven will stand and take note of that man, woman, or child who surrenders to the Lord in this way.
I must say, I have not been much prouder to be an American, than to witness the selflessness of ordinary people who were caught in the path of awful Hurricane Harvey….the people of Houston and the surrounding towns, and those who have rushed to rescue will not be forgotten. Thank God for those who drove from other states, for the wonderful law enforcement and other government workers: the images of human chains, black youth carrying old white people, long lines of trucks towing boats to search for survivors….oh my heart!
THIS IS THE NATION UNDER ASSAULT I SO DEARLY LOVE.
This is the real America for all you who have been mesmerized by carefully staged hate demonstrations, riots, and mayhem…..shame on all who hate this nation enough to take her down so deceitfully.
Follow the money….
When I was a child, the old people told me about the Sinking of the Titanic….they explained to me that some people gave their lives to save others and some men pushed women and children out of the way to get to safety. When a ship is sinking (or it appears to be sinking), the true heart of each individual is exposed.
THERE ARE TWO SPIRITS MANIFESTING ON PLANET EARTH NOW, CHRIST AND ANTICHRIST, AND ALL HUMANITY IS BEING DIVIDED BY THEIR RESPONSE TO THE LIGHT. FACE IT. EACH ONE OF US WILL HATE OR LOVE THE LIGHT OR THE DARKNESS.
AND EACH ONE OF US WILL MANIFEST THE LIGHT OR THE DARKNESS, CHRIST OR ANTICHRIST.
Christian, a door is open for salvation, but the time is coming it will be closed….do the work of the evangelist and do not be ashamed of the testimony of Jesus Christ. Love God; love people. Do not curse people.
Church families will have to care for orphans and the elderly.
Much will be required of us.
God is not done with America, but here is a verse for all who believe to consider,
Isaiah 62:6 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
6 I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises], keep not silence,
I AM CALLING OUT THE WATCHMEN OF THE LORD TO PRAY FOR AMERICA, IN THE NAME OF JESUS! GET TO YOUR POSTS AND HOLD UP THE STANDARD!
Several years ago, I questioned the Lord about the state of the nation spiritually and morally. I asked Him why He did not do something? I have known people who have fasted and prayed relentlessly for America for over 40 years. I have been in many prayer meetings in which good people mourned before the Lord for this country.
People who love God with all their hearts have committed their lives to hours of intercession, fastings, travail, and in my heart before God, I had to say,
There are a number of things I could write now, but it all boils down to what the Lord spoke to me so simply,
“It has taken 100 years for the United States to descend to this level….I am at work; this nation is a great ship, not a motorboat. If I turn her on a dime, she will sink. Keep your heart, pray, watch Me do what only I can do.”
God is love….God is merciful….God is longsuffering….God is just.
The wicked are taken in their wickedness; God opposes the proud; He exalts the humble. The wages of sin is death; the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, His Son.
Do not forget that the Holy Spirit followed you through every wicked moment of your life and even though you made your bed in Hell, HE was there. He did not give up on you.
What does America need?
I love fresh herbs….one of my favorites is rosemary. There are hedges of rosemary all around the tomb of Jesus; when you walk by and brush the plant the aroma wafts throughout the garden there. I have read that when one crushes the herb and smells it, thought capacity surges over fifty percent.
I know a man who is not a typical minister by our religious standards. The first time I met him he was preaching on holy living….people were being delivered from demons and were falling under the power of the Holy Spirit all around him. He had on overalls, and had a long pony tail.
He had my attention.
We have met several times since then; I was honored to speak at a Bible study at his home. He does not talk much.
After this meeting, I inquired about him. I was told one story about him and found out all I needed to know. There was a man who hated Christians, and hated him because he was a Christian; then this man was critically injured in an accident.
He had no family and no help, and could have died.
This man I asked about cleared out his living room and put in a hospital bed. The man was helpless. He took care of him like a baby for almost a year at his own expense. The man not only lived but became a Christian.
When we release the fragrance of Jesus Christ through our lives, the memory of this world towards the Lord Jesus will be restored….
We have a journey ahead and things to do, not in dead works, but as the Holy Spirit guides and convicts us…there are some strongholds to pull down in our American minds that oppose Christ and Christ in us, before the Power and Glory we long for will be fully released…
How lovely is Thy dwelling place O Lord of hosts My soul longs and yearns for Your courts And my heart and flesh sing for joy To the living God
One day in Your presence Is far better to me than gold Or to live my whole life somewhere else
And I would rather be A doorkeeper in Your house
Than to take my fate upon myself You are my sun and my shield You are my lover from the start
And the highway to Your city Runs through my heart
This beautiful song was a part of my earliest salvation experience...
I believe the Lord Himself is challenging what highways run through our hearts.
I believe He is calling us back to the King's Highway.
The Holy Spirit is doing all He does to guide us, not only towards Home, but to flow in His Gifts so
that Jesus will be glorified. I smell a Holy Fragrance beginning again.
God bless and keep and guide each one of you and all you love, in Jesus Name.
Sincerely in Jesus,
Vaughn Allen Clark
