PREPARED Part 4… what you are really being prepared FOR

“And IF THE RIGHTEOUS SCARCELY BE SAVED, WHERE SHALL THE UNGODLY AND THE SINNER APPEAR?” 1 Peter 4:18

This verse should be the sound of the alarm bells ringing on that ticking clock of the return of Christ that should be a wake up call to all.

“Sinners or saints, young or old, black or white, meaning your views are dead set and you see no other “colors” in between.  Even green or grey,  just trying your best to find the way, meaning, whether we are newbies, “green” in the Gospel or have the “grey head” of wisdom from years in His service, we all should hear the terrifying WARNING of that verse. 

My sister and I have discussed this in great detail over the years. If you really dissect this verse, it really ASKS us to think long and hard about the very simple truth that IF the righteous, those who have exchanged the “filthy rags of their own righteousness” for the PERFECT covering of the righteousness of God himself stated  Isaiah 54:17(b) “…And their righteousness IS of me, saith the Lord.”

There is NO righteousness outside the righteousness of God. It is not possible for any human, or any other pagan belief system to offer righteousness to us.  Our righteousness will only be found through the acceptance of Jesus Christ and in the washing of our souls in His blood. This verse tells us that bearing ALL that, if we do the VERY BEST we can do, we will still SCARECLY be saved, which means just barely making it in.

And yes, I do realize there is a whole doctrine of once in grace, always in grace. I realize even more painfully the current movement is “Repentance? What repentance?” 

What I personally believe this line to mean is this, even though we ARE saved and our salvation is ASSURED (Romans 8:35-39) BUT being human and subject to all things human, all the snares of trying to live “holy” in an incredibly unholy world.

A world that not only encourages every kind of imaginable sin, but CELEBRATES those sins and even alienates others for NOT participating in those sins. The deception IS so strong, just as Jesus warned us of the false Christs, and false prophets.

Matthew 24:24: “For there SHALL arise false Christs, and FALSE PROPHETS, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, they shall deceive the very elect.”

False teachers and false prophets that lie and deceive those who want a “commandment free” RELIGION and choose deception over true SALVATION. And he is warning us that this deception is so meticulously convincing that IF IT WERE NOT FOR HIS DIVINE INTERVENTION, HIS VERY CHOSEN WOULD BE DECEIVED! HE WILL NOT ALLOW US TO BE DECEIVED… UNLESS WE ALLOW OURSELVES TO BE.

Which also brings in two more verses. Matthew 16:24: ” Then said Jesus unto his disciples, IF any man will come after me, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF, and take up his cross, and follow me.”

Notice the denial, denial of all the desires and whims of the flesh and of this world. Taking up that cross, having “crucified our flesh DAILY” through the renewing of our minds in his word, and following in HIS footsteps and HIS teachings and CHOOSE to be led by God, who does truly KNOW everything rather than a world who likes to think they KNOW more than even God, who CREATED it all, including them!

Forsaking ALL their high browed arguments against God, and against the very laws and commandments he himself designed FOR OUR OWN GOOD, and against the truth of his existence, trusting in their genetic frailty and decay because they simply REFUSE to acknowledge that their pompous minds could be wrong and that their souls could actually be subject unto a higher being, and that there could be a standard that they will be measured against.

And it is just easier for them to DENY his existence rather than to ADMIT their guilt.

Even though there is no “escape clause” in the Bible excusing us from the penalty of eternal hell and damnation because of our unbelief, quite the opposite, gotta have FAITH in him and in his existence. 

Hebrews 11:5: “But without faith it is impossible to please him;  for he that cometh to God MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, and that HE IS a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

These pressures and these forces that make it so hard for US, that we SCARCELY slide by their traps, the traps of the temptations to sin, the traps of false doctrines whispered in our ears and bombarding us by television and media.

I, for one, think we need to stay away from even listening to these lies, I know others may “study” other “religions” but in doing so, they are opening themselves up to the “doctrine of devils” and allowing those polluted thoughts inside their minds, we are told specifically that all these teachings are AGAINST God and this will get you on the wrong side of the boat, fast.

James 4:4: ” Ye adulterers, and adulteresses, know ye not that THE FRIENDSHIP OF (with) THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? WHOSOEVER THEREFORE WILL (wants to) BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD (makes himself the enemy of God).”

All the nonsense of learning each other and fellowship of “tolerance” is just more of Satan’s deceptions. God never said to hate others or mistreat them because of differences BUT his word tells us to STAY AWAY from all of it.

NONE of us EVER grow so much or climb so high that we are above temptation, snares and traps, as long as we are human and on this earth we can, do and will stumble, that is why we are told SCARCELY, but we repent, get up, go on and TRY it again!

One of the innumerable beauties of Christ is that HE IS faithful to forgive us, over and over, and over, when our hearts are sincere, his grace is endless. 

But for those who do err and teach sin and absolute contempt for his commandments and yet proclaim salvation to all whether they repent or accept Christ or not that somehow they are under a magical umbrella, teaching the complete OPPOSITE of repentance and salvation.

Matthew 15:8,9: “THIS PEOPLE DRAWETH NIGH UNTO ME WITH THEIR MOUTH, AND HONOURETH ME WITH THEIR LIPS; BUT THEIR HEARTS IS FAR FROM ME. BUT IN VAIN THEY DO WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN.” 

He warned us right there! We are warned many times of the deception, that they WILL use his name, they WILL shout to the whole world that he is great, all this comes from their lips but in their heart, remember, “as a man thinketh in his heart, so IS he”, so their HEART, the truth of their belief is far, far from God or the things of his kingdom.

I believe that the false teachers DO NOT even believe in his existence.

I truly do not think anyone could believe in him and not fear teaching the things they teach. They teach the things people want to hear, to give them a false sense of eternal security never converting them to that actual security, in order to gain financially and in popularity. 

Sometimes it is hard to win people to the Lord, but truthfully, I think some of the greatest words we will ever hear in doing so, is these “I don’t want to be a hypocrite”, when someone acknowledges that they are not interested in serving the Lord, and that they FEAR the Lord and do not want to allow others to believe that they are while still unrepentant, that PROVES that there is HOPE for that person!

As long as they BELIEVE that HE IS, there is hope, as Jesus also told us, John 3:18-20“He that believeth on him is NOT condemned, BUT he that BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, BECAUSE HE HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE NAME OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.

And THIS IS THE CONDEMNATION, that light is come into the world, and MEN LOVED THE DARKNESS RATHER THAN THE LIGHT, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that DOETH EVIL HATETH THE LIGHT, NEITHER COMETH TO THE LIGHT, lest his deeds should be reproved (exposed).” 

This ANSWERS Peter’s question, WHERE will they stand at his coming? WHERE will the ungodly, those who deny, ridicule, and scoff at God, his statues, and his very existence?

WHERE will the sinners, I know everyone hates that word now, used to make people THINK, now just makes them angry, HOW dare anyone CALL THEM A SINNER?

That is a big one right there! Self-willed and prideful, lust of life, refusal to acknowledge that we could POSSIBLY do wrong!

We do not need to beat people over the head but when they are running the “reprobate risk” we need to give the a wake up call.

Sin is sin, and well, certain things ARE sin, you do those things, guess what, makes you a sinner! We have ALL been sinners! We ALL STRUGGLE AGAINST SIN!

That is part of SCARCELY! ME, you, EVERYONE fights sin! 

Again JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH, THE MESSIAH, said THIS, point-blank, period, no ifs, no ands, and no buts. THIS is THE LIST of those who will NOT be allowed in his kingdom.

Revelation 21:5-8: “And HE THAT SAT UPON THE THRONE said, Behold, I make ALL things new, and he said unto me, Write: FOR THESE WORDS ARE TRUE AND FAITHFUL.

And HE said unto me, It is done, I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END. I will give unto him that is athirst of the  fountain of the water of life FREELY. 

He that OVERCOMETH shall inherit all things: I WILL BE HIS GOD, and he shall be my son.

BUT THE FEARFUL (cowards), AND THE UNBELIEVING, AND THE ABOMINABLE (despicable, obnoxious, etc.), AND MURDERERS, AND WHOREMONGERS (sexually immoral), AND SORCERERS, (psychics, witchcraft, etc.), AND IDOLATERS (putting EVERYTHING before God), AND ALL LIARS, SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE WITH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE: WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.”

These are the words of Jesus, It is NOT written in red because John was writing to us what Jesus spoke to him, and we KNOW this is indeed Christ by His reference of Alpha and Omega.

Just to be so clear of WHOSE words these are, and the words of Christ are written in red, so Revelation 1:8: ” I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, the beginning and the ending, SAITH THE LORD, which IS, and which WAS, and which IS TO COME, THE ALMIGHTY.” 

He reveals his complete identity in this verse, HE IS the beginning of all things, HE IS the end of all things, HE IS everything in between.

He WAS, John:1-17In the beginning WAS the Word, the Word WAS with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD. 

The same was in the beginning with God. ALL things were MADE by him: and without him was not any thing made that was made.

IN HIM WAS LIFE; And the life WAS the light of men. AND THE LIGHT SHINETH INTO DARKNESS; AND THE DARKNESS COMPREHENDED IT NOT.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light. 

THAT WAS THE TRUE LIGHT, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

He WAS in the world, and the world WAS made by him, and the world knew him not.

He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, EVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE ON HIS NAME;

WHICH WERE BORN, NOT OF BLOOD, NOR OF THE WILL OF THE FLESH, NOR OF THE WILL OF MAN, BUT OF GOD.

AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US, (and we beheld his glory, the glory, as the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This WAS he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me IS preferred BEFORE me; FOR HE WAS BEFORE ME.” 

All that Jesus had said of himself. 

Humans can not look on the face of God, when Jesus came here, he came AS the Son of God, HE IS the Son of God, HE IS the Word, which did truly dwell among us and at his resurrection we were given the gift of that resurrection power which allowed the death of our flesh and spiritual birth in him because he actually DWELLS in us through the Holy Ghost.

But HE IS also God, which is why he referred to himself as IS and IS YET TO COME, meaning his return to earth and his kingdom that will be very much ON earth, precisely in what is now Jerusalem, soon to be NEW Jerusalem.

And as far as his Word, which HE IS, he left us all we need to know in the pages of his Holy Word, The Bible.

STUDY it for yourself, or get the audio version of the King James and listen to it. DO NOT take others words as his word, we are in such a time of deception and there IS only one way to heaven and the return to New Jerusalem and assurance of eternal life, and that IS through Jesus Christ.

1 john 2:22-23: “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is an anti-Christ that denieth the Father and the Son.

Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath NOT the Father: [but] HE THAT HATH ACKNOWLEDETH THE SON HATH THE FATHER ALSO.”

We have to have Jesus and we have to have his salvation and his forgiveness, and we will not have to ask ourselves WHERE shall we appear, when this world hears something similar to those spoken by the Lord in the Book of Amos, when they are told to “prepare to meet thy God”.

He’s coming back, ready or not, and we better be prepared to meet him.

Love & peace to ya, till next time! Thanks for reading!

More of the deception of hell: RESERVATIONS FOR HELL

“Oh, say can you see……”

“For thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon is like a threshingfloor, it is time to thresh her; (when it is) yet a little while, and the time of the harvest shall come.

Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will plead thy cause (for justice), and take vengeance for thee; I will dry up her sea. and make her springs dry.

And Babylon shall become heaps (heaps of ruins), a dwellingplace for dragons (jackals), an astonishment, (a gazing stock of horror to those who see the destruction of it), and an hissing, without inhabitants. 

I will bring THEM DOWN like lambs to the slaughter, like rams and he (male) goats. How Sheshach (code word for Babylon) and how is the praise of the whole earth surprised! (the COUNTRY that all other countries aspired to match in wealth and strength IS SEIZED)  How is Babylon become an astonishment (DESOLATE) AMONG THE NATIONS.

Therefore, Behold, the DAYS COME, that I WILL do (bring) JUDGMENT UPON THE GRAVEN IMAGES OF BABYLON: and her WHOLE LAND shall be confounded and ALL her slain shall fall in the midst of HER. Then the HEAVEN and the EARTH, and all that are therein SHALL SING for Babylon (REJOICE BECAUSE IT IS DESTROYED): for the spoilers (plunderers) shall come upon her from the north, saith the Lord.

Though Babylon should mount (ascend) up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength ( attempt to be strong against the enemies) YET FROM ME shall the spoilers (destructive forces) COME unto her.

Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and her mighty men ARE taken, every one of their bows broken (their weapons will be useless), FOR THE LORD GOD of recompenses SHALL SURELY requite, (repay, bring DIVINE JUDGMENT against “her”) And I WILL make drunk (senseless and lose all logic) her princes, and her wise men, her captains (governors), her rulers, and her mighty men shall sleep, and not wake, saith the KING, whose name IS the Lord of hosts.

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The broad walls (protective forces) shall be utterly broken (laid bare), and her high gates shall be burned with fire, and they shall be weary.” JEREMIAH 51:33,35,37,40,41,47,48,53,56-58

Now that is a tiny, tiny sample of the judgments because the end time judgments are so numerous that they were written double-sided. Read the chapter for yourself and ask God for guidance and He will reveal it to you, if your heart is toward him.

The warnings of the judgment are  for the believers in that we will know as it comes to pass and God always warns those slated to destruction, although the common message to the prophets was this “although they will not hear you” translated, even though they will not listen, they can never stand in front of God and try to plead innocence through ignorance to the facts because whether they believed or they didn’t, they were told.

This prophecy was actually a double-header, it took out original Babylon but it was set against a futuristic (at the time, that future is NOW HERE) SPIRITUAL BABYLON, the DAUGHTER of Babylon, which is:

REVELATION 17:5 : “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT….

Now the common teaching for years was that somehow Iran or some small country would rise to power and BECOME this great wealthy, powerful nation and another thought was that the Catholic church would hold this spot.

Well, problem is, kinda like when Wall Street crashed in America and everyone decided they were “just too big to fail”. You can also look at it like this, when King David had Uriah murdered because he had slept with Uriah’s wife, and when Nathan the Prophet came and told him the comparison of his sin, he DIDN’T even realize that Nathan spoke of him, until Nathan told him that “he was the man”.  

Let’s look at what God had Jeremiah do after giving him this prophecy:

JEREMIAH 51: 60,61: “So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come upon Babylon, even ALL these words that  against BABYLON.

” And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When thou  comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and SHALT READ ALL  these words:”  Words God gave Jeremiah, spoken, as they have to be by another agent when he “came” to Babylon and “saw” that IT WAS BABYLON,   some will dig that at the right time. 

To continue, 63 ,64: Then thou shalt say, O, Lord, that thou hast SPOKEN against THIS place, to cut it off, that NONE shall remain in it, NEITHER man nor beast, but that it shall be desolate (laid waste) FOR EVER.

And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book (Finished reading the proclamation over that Babylon), that thou should (you are to) bind a stone to it, and cast (throw) it into the Euphrates: And thou shalt say, THUS SHALL BABYLON SINK, AND SHALL NOT RISE FROM THE EVIL THAT IW ILL BRING UPON HER: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.”

This is good to know when dealing with false prophets and false doctrines and those who keep screaming “peace”. THERE WILL BE NO PEACE! The same false spirit lied to the sin seduced minds of old, like the ones who were destroyed in the Old Testament also. Telling them they could do whatever they want because God loves them.

God is merciful, HE IS kind, IF you repent and LIVE FOR HIM. He has never, will nor He ever BLESS SIN!

He will NOT fight your battles, nor will he BLESS YOUR LAND when the land and the people have turned  against Him and spat in his face! HE said “Woe unto the nation that turns AGAINST God, that NATION SHALL BE TURNED UNTO HELL”  Does that sound like  peace to anyone other than the soul stealing candy coats?

 Peace IS NOT coming, the judgments ARE ALREADY on the way. Just as Jesus said HE IS COMING “TO BRING A SWORD”!

Scream PEACE, scream tolerance, scream acceptance all you want, people scream this because THEY DON’T WANT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR OWN SIN! SO THEY LIE AND TEACH OTHERS THAT THEY AREN’T ACCOUNTABLE EITHER.

Scream all they want because they will have a different scream, when they are screaming for the rocks to fall on them and hide them from the face of Jesus, if they serve him and speak for him in all this promised peace and prosperity, why will they need to hide?

They will beg to die and will not be able to die, God will supernaturally perform it so that no matter what someone does to their human body in attempt to flee His justice, that they CAN NOT die!

Yeah, sounds real peaceful, sounds like He is just as thrilled with humans as he was in the days of Noah and the days of Lot. But this go round will be totally different because THIS BABYLON couldn’t just sin, No, THIS BABYLON sinned and committed every imaginable and some unimaginable abominations and had the unbridled audacity and sheer stupidity to PUT HIS NAME ON IT and TRY TO HIDE BEHIND A CROSS.

Ready for a healthy dose of revelation? Nothing is so big that God can not bring it down, David was that man, and “MYSTERY” is  a hidden truth with a spiritual meaning. Mystery solved: HER IDENITY: “BABYLON THE GREAT”  = “AMERICA THE GREAT”.

I studied this for years and diligently tried my best to flee this calling and had more questions than answers as to how the sinking suspicion of “HER” identity could be. But now I think we can all see.  I often asked the Lord what could we as a nation possibly do that was so bad to bring about such destruction.

Well, I hadn’t lived long enough because, I think now WE ALL SEE.

America fits every single criteria written for “MYSTERY”. There are so many it is hard to list them all but here are a few, we dwell on many waters, we are abundant in treasures and delicacies, we are the nation of “mingled” people, mixed of all races, we are a young nation, the most powerful on earth, we are a society that can not get enough which leads us to be the number one importer of cheap goods, which fulfills these prophecies:

REVELATION 18:9-13  : And the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived deliciously (luxuriously) with her, shall bewail (weep for) her, and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for FEAR of her torment, saying, Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for IN ONE HOUR THY JUDGMENT IS COME. and the MERCHANTS OF THE EARTH shall weep and mourn over her; FOR NO MAN BUYETH THEIR MERCAHNDISE ANY MORE:

The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner of vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and of iron, and marble,

And cinnamon, and odours (incense) and ointments (perfumed oils), and frankincense, and wine, and OIL, ad fine flour, and wheat, and beasts (cattle) and sheep, and horses, and chariots,  and slaves (BODIES), and SOULS OF MEN.”

Now the reason “all the kings” have committed fornication with “HER” is this, since being founded, others have fled to America, they have sought “the American Dream” and all nations have followed us in suit, not because they like us (they don’t) but to aspire to have the wealth and power of this nation.

BUT unfortunately this nation made the tragic mistake of believing we had all this wealth and power because we are just groovy when WE HAD IT BECAUSE GOD HAD BLESSED AMERICA.

BECAUSE IT WAS THE ONLY NATION OTHER THAN ISRAEL FOUNDED FOR HIM AND UPON HIS WORSHIP. For years I could not understand the”souls of men” and I would be like, “God, we don’t have slaves now”  but NOW I SEE.

The dead bodies of aborted babies picked apart in pie tins and sold to the highest bidder. Ancient Babylon had a nasty little habit of building their houses on sacrificed children for “good luck” and were known to keep baby bodies in jars for the same purpose.

NOW I SEE, a far worse slavery, sexual slave trafficking is a multi billion dollar  a year business and yes, alive and well here in the good ol’ USA.  Thanks to a rampant sexual culture that would indeed shame Sodom

We see on home and garden channels, people who have million dollar budgets and all homes shown  to them are “too small”  and the never-ending  song of no matter how big, how nice, how new it still “needs updated” because the Babylonians can never get enough that why so much is mentioned of the merchants.

To continue, REVELATION 17:14-19:  And the fruits thy soul lusted after ARE DEPARTED from thee, and all the things which were dainty (are rich) and goodly (splendid) ARE DEPARTED from thee, and thou shalt find them NO MORE at all.

The merchants of these things, WHICH WERE MADE RICH BY HER, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, Alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

For IN ONE HOUR so great riches is come to nought (absolute destruction). And EVERY shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and AS MANY AS TRADE BY SEA, stood afar off. And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein WERE MADE RICH ALL THAT HAD SHIPS IN THE SEA, by reason of her costliness ( wealth)! FOR IN ONE HOUR SHE IS MADE DESOLATE ( A WASTELAND) .

What country on earth could at its destruction bring ALL the global economy to its knees? What country has made all the other countries money by buying droves, and droves of imports because they are a people who just can never get enough?

How does this tie to Jeremiah? Well, all things prophetic involve acts and reactions, mirroring between heaven and earth.

REVELATION 17:20,21 :  “REJOICE OVER HER, THOU HEAVEN, AND YE HOLY APOSTLES AND PROPHETS; FOR GOD HATH AVENGED YOU ON HER. (Mystery Babylon holds such a disgust in the eyes of God BECAUSE they turned from Him, that He holds it personally accountable for ALL the blood, including that of the prophets)

verse 21: And a mighty ANGEL TOOK UP A STONE, like a great millstone, AND CAST IT INTO THE SEA, saying, THUS WITH VIOLENCE SHALL THAT GREAT CITY BABYLON BE THROWN DOWN, AND SHALL BE FOUND NO MORE AT ALL.”

If a watchman sees the sword and fails to warn, then that watchman is accountable for all. I am sure this will be met with much criticism, especially from the candy coats and money preachers, (but their judgment is so soon coming) and those who will scream anti-American, well, I am not, I love my people enough to tell them the truth and the truth is this. America is ALREADY under judgment, a sword is upon her treasures and the enemies are flocking in droves.

Jesus NEVER gave instructions to Christians  in his end time teachings, He gave instructions only for those living in Jerusalem.

Why? Because WE WILL NOT BE here. The destruction of Babylon is with the end time events BUT it is a separate judgment BEFORE the anti Christ and mark of the beast and forthcoming plagues. 

The only way out is in the rapture that will happen just as Babylon is destroyed through a coordinated attack waged by multiple enemies. So my prayer today is that you will see and know and believe.

Again, don’t kill the Messenger, I will not stand before God and give fear of rejection as a reason for not sounding a trumpet. And if you do see, do NOT be afraid, trust God, live for Him ACCORDING TO HIS WORD, not according to the candy coats and false doctrines, read the BIBLE for yourself and KNOW He is bringing all these things to pass for the fulfillment of His Kingdom on earth, when peace will exist and kindness and mercy WILL RULE.

It is like His suffering and His death on the cross, there is no other way. People are like they were in the days of Noah and they are worse than those in Sodom and only when he reigns will there be change for the innocents who suffer.

I’ll leave you with His words from MATTHEW 24:43: “ But KNOW THIS, that if the goodman (owner) of the house had KNOWN in what watch (time) the thief would come, HE WOULD HAVE WATCHED, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up (broken into)

Double Vision Part 1

I want to talk about a tricky subject, prophecy, 1 Corinthians 14:1,3) “Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that you may prophesy.(3) But he that prophesieth speaketh  unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.”

The hard thing with this is the reputation that some have given it. This is truly the churches lifeline, it is not for unbelievers, it is for us, to lead us, guide us, protect us and sometimes warn us.
I really can’t say much for fear of the Lord, but this is really for anyone who maybe hasn’t been “churched”.
When I got saved it was like “falling off a turnip truck” I did not know anything. And now more than ever we have to be very careful what we listen to.
God never changes and prophesy has to conform to his word and his Spirit bears witness with the truth. It is imperative that you really, really know who is touching you and what their relationship is with God. How “slick” is this stuff going to be?

Matthew 24:24 “ For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that If it were possible they shall deceive the very elect.
Now that is scary, A deception so great that if we weren’t protected from it, his very chosen would fall to it.
 I want to give some of my lessons from the battlefield insight to this, years ago I was seeking and seeking and this was right before my calling was confirmed, at that time I only went to the church I was baptized in and this was a really good church and one night this guy shows up and for some unknown reason they turn him loose, and he ended up showing up for services after that, he never took his eyes off me and made feel so uncomfortable that I thought several times about leaving, he even gave me a card in case I ever wanted him to lay hands on me, and I was thinking Buddy, you are not touching me, anyway he told me some things as I was trying to leave and that night I had a dream, about him and another person and they were putting all this fruit in my arms and I started looking at it and it was all fake, it looked beautiful, but when you looked closely, it was not real fruit.

So being afraid because we cannot ever speak against anything of God, I called our late Pastors wife and she told me that if something makes you feel that way that it is the Spirit letting you know that something is not quite right.
 So I stayed away from him and left it to God, one night I knew I was really close, they were praying for people and I kept waiting out  hoping he’d leave or something because I knew I really needed prayer, I finally made it up there and this same guy was coming over to me and about that time one of our preachers was behind me touched the back of my head and one word it was over. I took it as God got to me before he did. 
As it turned out NOONE knew this guy, and I have seen that in other churches and I’m always thinking, People you are turning them loose with your sheep, and I’ve seen churches tore apart.
After I started pondering all of this God let me find some examples of just how cautious we need to be.
Acts 16:16-19, tells us of a girl who had a spirit of divination and was used to make money by fortune telling, she followed Paul and Silas around proclaiming who they were. The striking thing with this is, what she was saying was TRUE, but Paul was GRIEVED IN HIS SPIRIT and he commanded the spirit to come out of her.
Another example is Numbers chapters 22-24:
More or less a sorcerer had been hired to curse Israel  and God intervened and forced these curses to be turned to pronounced blessings. Something to be said about what’s being spoke and prayed over us.
Why would God not just laugh and say “Go ahead, it won’t work anyway”. No he reversed it and had good spoken.
I do want to be careful again to say we must never say anything against anyone of God, I think maybe sometimes things are not right in a persons life or they get too excited or pray based on what they know, I don’t know.
All I know is be obedient to the spirit, always trust him even when you don’t understand, and sometimes God does have a word for us that may not be exactly what our flesh wants to hear, but he will come to what is his.
Now I’ve said all this to say this, Just as the magicians in the book of Exodus could imitate the plagues to a point, I think he was just kind playing with them letting think they were accomplishing something, So when he put “the smack down” on them it just hurt their egos that much more.
We know false prophets are here but I believe He is getting ready to rock the world with his real prophets! Next time.

"Wanna Be"

Cute term, can be kinda offensive, but I promise I will prove why in the case we all should want to be “wannabes”!
The Church of Philadelphia, Revelation 3:7-13 is one of a kind. This church an universal symbol of love ,mercy,compassion, I believe is the one composed of all nations, all kindred, all tongues. So what do they have?
 Love as in “A new commandment I give unto you. That ye love one another as I have loved you, ye also love one another.“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one for another”                                             John 13:34&35,
Proverbs10:12 “Hatred stirreth up strife: but love covereth all sins.” Love “Beareth all things, beleiveth all things, hopes all things ,endureth all things” 1 Corinthians13:7 
 How about mercy?
“For he shall have judgment without mercy, that shewed no mercy: and mercy rejoiceth against  judgment.”                                                              James2:13 
“Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy”      Matthew 5:7.
 Compassion? Galatians6:1&2 “BRETHREN, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”
All the things He is to us, His mercy that is renewed every morning, his banner of love over us serving notice on the Hell that we are his and his unfailing compassion that understands all we go through and cries with us. All that he is and all he wants us to be, not judge, jury and executioner, It is not his will that any shall perish.
Seven times we are told “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches”  Now “listen” closely….
“And to the angel (messenger) of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith HE THAT IS HOLY, HE THAT IS TRUE, HE THAT HATH THE KEY OF DAVID, HE THAT OPENETH, AND NO MAN SHUTTETH; AND SHUTTETH, AND NO MAN OPENETH;
I KNOW THY WORKS: BEHOLD I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE AN OPEN DOOR, AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT FOR THOU HAST A LITTLE STRENGHT, AND HAST KEPT MY WORD, AND HAST KEPT MY NAME.
BECAUSE THOU HAST KEPT THE WORD OF MY PATIENCE (command to persevere) I ALSO WILL KEEP THE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPATION (trial) WHICH SHALL COME UPON ALL THE WORLD TO TRY (test) THEM THAT DWELL UPON EARTH”    Revelation 3:7,8,10
My personal favorite,
Isaiah26:20&21 “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: Hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” With promises like that we all should wanna be in this blessed number!

BABYLON / BLOOD, BRIDLES,& BIRDS Part 3

“Who is this that cometh up from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in HIS apparel, travelling in the greatness of HIS strength?


I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.”


Wherefore art thou (why are you) red in thine apparel, and thy garments ( your clothing) like him that treadteth in the winefat (winepress)?


I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I WILL tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; AND THEIR BLOOD SHALL BE SPRINKLED UPON MY GARMENTS AND I WILL STAIN MY RAIMENT.” Isaiah 63:1-3
A little eavesdropping on a conversation there, mention of which let’s pick up on the conversation God had with Jeremiah concerning polluting his church and burning children as sacrifices, shall we?
“Therefore, behold, The days shall come, sayeth the Lord, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor  the valley of  the son of Hinnom,
BUT THE VALLEY OF SLAUGHTER: FOR THEY SHALL BURY IN TOPHET, TILL THERE BE NO PLACE.
AND THE CARCASES (DEAD BODIES) OF THIS PEOPLE SHALL BE MEAT FOR THE FOWLS OF THE HEAVEN, AND FOR THE BEASTS OF THE EARTH; and none shall fray (frighten) them away.” Jeremiah 7:32,33
So how angry do you suppose he is at the moment?
The sin, the lying, the cheating, again all that is a different thing, that is need for salvation.
But the abominations, profaning his name, and killing little babies has led to bloodguilt and that is a charge that is undisputable, as we discussed in earlier posts earth itself is polluted by blood.
When reaping time comes:
Revelation 14:14-20
“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown and in his hand a sharp sickle.
And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle and the earth was reaped.
Another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire, and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
And the angel thrust in his sharp sickle into the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
And the winepress was trodden (trampled)without (outside) the city, and BLOOD CAME OUT OF THE WINEPRESS, EVEN UNTO THE HORSE BRIDLES, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
That is about two hundred miles of blood as high as a horse head.
Now for a little more detail,
 Revelation 19:11-18:
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse: and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth (does) judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture (robe) dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in linen, white and clean.
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the WINEPRESS OF THE FIERCENESS OF THE WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
And he hath on his vesture (robe) and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, COME AND GATHER YOURSELVES TOGETHER UNTO THE SUPPER OF THE GREAT GOD.
That YE MAY EAT THE FLESH of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sat upon them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.”
Earth will be reaped of what the inhabitants have sown, and that is a very, very clear picture.
That is the payment HE will require by those who have poured out the blood of innocents and lacking any respect or regard for the lives he created, their lifeless bodies will be fed to his birds.
He will judge by his WORD, and as all this plays out and after having seen baby parts in a pie tin in the planned parenthood video, I am really starting to understand why.
In closing if you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior, please, please think about these things that are to come, watch the news, see these things for yourself, God is loving and he is protective and he simply will not allow the suffering of those in bondage and all these slaughtered on earth to continue much longer, and as the prayers of his saints, begging for those to be delivered form this evil grow stronger they will be mingled with the angel of heaven and it is coming, the only way to escape is repent and trust Jesus.

BABYLON / BLOOD, BRIDLES, & BIRDS Part 1

This is one of those places where the train meets the track,  and the rubber meet the road, whichever you can identify with.
The most challenging part of this job is to convey just how a God who loves us and wants to save us, still will pour out suffering unlike anything the world has ever known.
When I was young, I always thought Man, Jesus is so awesome but that God guy scares me to death!
Really worked out well for me when I was enlightened to the fact that JESUS IS that GOD guy!
So we have to run on that note,
Jesus DOES want to save people, He DIED and ROSE again to make this possible.
He DOES NOT hate lost people, he does not hate addicts, prostitutes, homosexuals, or their counter part straight “bed-hoppers” or the other lists you could easily come up with from the Ten Commandments.
He forgives us and NEVER, EVER, reminds us of our past life.
He IS love, He IS mercy, and He IS gentle, and even being God of all creation, believe it or not, He IS humble and will never force himself into your life, you have to want him and once you have met him, you will never know how you ever lived without out him or why you were so blind to beauty that can not even be described.
Now for the other edge of that sword, He does love all his creation.
 I do not bash women who have abortions, because the truth of it is that it is a greater force at work, society teaches to us to have sex with anyone coming and going and to never mind that pit in your stomach telling you not to, never mind that voice of old Granny inside your head telling you to that God wants you to save yourself for marriage, and overriding those warnings to fit in with peers, giving yourself away for absolutely nothing, not even for love and often unprepared and then pregnancy comes and now you have a scared girl who is a child herself, with these twisted demonic beasts who suppose to have her best interest in mind, and now they are giving her a way out, they will be glad to take her and see her through an abortion, enticing words, “Your not ready for a baby”, “You need to be financially stable”, “You are doing what is best for YOU”.
Yeah, so much so, there are now women who have had multiple abortions, and then there are those who are consumed by the guilt that run head first into the land of self-destruct and only God can move that.
He set laws in order when he created the universe.

THESE LAWS CAN NEVER CHANGE. They are binding, forever and ever, as it is written, so shall it be and again, it really does not matter whether WE BELIEVE that or not, it is just like the sun shines and the moon lightens the night, you can tell yourself all day that it is not so, but still for everyone else that sun is still shining and your stubbornness hasn’t change a thing, only cost you a warm ray.
People are always like well, if God is real, why doesn’t he do this, or do that, or show himself? Well, why should he? Why should he reveal himself to a bunch of naysayers that want to dispute his existence?
Nevertheless, believe it or not, HE WILL be revealing himself and believe me the world will never again question his existence.
Blood, Blood, and more Blood.
The life is in the blood. Blood my not be eaten and if it is shed, it is required that blood  be held to blood. Here’s a quick guide:
Genesis 9:3-7 “Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat (food) for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, ye shall not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of that man. Whoso sheddeth man’s blood by man shall his blood be shed: FOR IN THE IMAGE OF GOD MADE HE MAN. And you be fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.”
Ok, I know there are those who like to argue that is Old Testament, well you have to go by that too, check out Revelation 22:18,19 and then sit down and shut up, because it the word twisting wanna be’s that helped make this mess, for the record, as followers of Christ, we are not bound by the food laws that the Jews must adhere to, however we are forbidden to eat that which was offered to idols or ANYTHING CONTAINING BLOOD (so if you order steaks rare, you may wanna rethink that about now)
He requires blood for blood, period. No ifs, no ands, and no buts.
Psalm 9:12 : “When he maketh inquisition (avenges blood), he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble (afflicted)”
I’m sure we all have seen the released videos about the selling of aborted baby parts, I could not believe my eyes at the sight of a little baby leg, and a baby arm, baby brains, livers, and kidneys SOLD, THE BLOOD OF BABIES mingled in pie tins as their little bodies are picked apart and sold to the highest bidder.
He will be judging this and blood will be the price the guilty will pay.
I promise you as a servant of God these people will be begging just to die ( and they will not be able to) just as his word says, rather than suffer the wrath and the anger that God will soon pour out on this place because of this,  it is not the  “common sin” IT IS THE ABOMINATION OF COVERING EARTH WITH BLOOD OF THE INNOCENTS.
This is where the separation takes place, no matter how merciful he is, he will not allow the slaughter of innocence, he is just and he is holy, and as he said “Vengeance is” his.
Babylon is accountable for every drop of blood that has been shed, there is no changing that, it can never be undone.
When people are so desperately evil and a country so deceived that not only is baby murdering unpunished but is taxpayer funded to allow the slaughter and dissection of a human being for a mothers convenience and for profit than there is no way to escape the anger of God.
There are countless, countless scriptures that he warns about this, just one example:
Deuteronomy 19:10 ” That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.”
Jesus shed HIS own blood to save us, how precious do you think all those lives and all their blood is to him?
Well find out in part two just how he feels about these babies and just how much that blood they shed is going to cost them.

GUNNIN’ FOR GOMORRAH PART 3 / DESPICABLE, DEPLORABLE, AND IN DENIAL

” ….For they say, The Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth.” 
                        Ezekiel 8:12(a)
This was the thought in ancient Israel, the Lord delivered them, they prospered, they forgot all about him and worshipped every idol under the sun, well, and even the sun.
He would remove his divine protection and they would be at the mercy of their enemies and after being afflicted by them, they would soon remember the God that they were so quick to forget.
God would then in his mercy, bring justice and delivered them once again into safety.
This cycle only to be repeated over and over again and comprises most of the book of Judges.
In our text from Ezekiel, it was a little different, they had brought their filth and abominations actually into the temple of the Lord and once having done so had the audacity or rather sheer stupidity to really believe that he knew nothing about this.
Once he had called forth his angels, an absolute slaughter of all took place.
Beginning at HIS sanctuary, (only sparing those who had cried out to him for justice) and again this was ANCIENT Israel, NOT to be confused with modern Israel.
After showing the prophet Ezekiel the host of sins which they committed while WORKING IN HIS TEMPLE, he said this:
 “Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light (trivial) thing to the house of Judah that they commit these abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and lo, they put a branch to their nose, therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I NOT hear them
                        Ezekiel 8:17,18
“Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is my mark; and begin at MY sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men (temple elders) which were before the house (temple).
And he said unto them, Defile, the house ,(temple) and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth, and slew in the city.
And it came to pass, while they were yet slaying (killing)them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said “Ah Lord God! wilt thou destroy all the residue (remnant) of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem?
Then said HE unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, AND THE LAND IS FULL OF BLOOD, and the city FULL OF PERVERSENESS, FOR THEY SAY, THE LORD HATH FORSAKEN THE EARTH, AND THE LORD SEETH NOT.
And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I WILL RECOMPENSE THEIR WAY UPON THEIR HEAD.”
                         Ezekiel 9:8-11
Now, THIS is THE GOD that the false prophets and money preachers would have the world believe is perfectly fine with unrepentant sin!
As he asked Ezekiel, “Is it a light thing?”
At present time they are so full of denial that they believe their own lies.
THIS IS THE SAME GOD that brought judgment down on the temple that was called by his name and does anyone really want to believe that suddenly he no longer considers this things a problem to be taken care of?
And anyone tries to poison your mind to believe otherwise, I want to leave you with a prophetic judgment YET to be fulfilled, but it will because what has been written, has been written, and as it is written so it shall be done.
“For, lo, I begin to bring evil (calamity) on the city which is called by MY name, and should you be utterly unpunished?
Ye shall NOT be unpunished: for I WILL call for a sword upon ALL the INHABITANTS of the EARTH.”
And the slain of the Lord shall be at that day FROM ONE END OF THE EARTH EVEN UNTO THE OTHER END OF THE EARTH: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.”
                      Jeremiah 25:29,33
Well now you don’t hear that everyday, but this is why we are either going to TRULY repent or we are going to be led to judgment.
Have no confusion, sin, death, and hell all go hand in hand but these things to come to pass are JUDGMENTS against  THE NATIONS leveled by the hand of GOD HIMSELF.
So decide for yourself before it is too late.
