As The Days of Noah...




Thus says the Lord of hosts, "Behold, evil is going forth from nation to nation, and a great storm is being stirred up from the remotest parts of the earth." - Jeremiah 25:32

When a meteorologist sees a storm coming in the near future, they begin reporting to the public so that the people can prepare. And as the time for the storm draws closer, the data becomes more and more precise. Within that time, it is advised to take the proper precautions to make sure that the people are safe; whether it's stocking up on food and water, gas, batteries, or candles; or maybe it's advised to evacuate all together. But we know that the closer it gets to the storm's arrival, the less time you have to prepare. Then there comes a point where the storm has arrived, and the alarms begin to sound. Wherever you're at, that's it! No more time to prepare...it's time to go!

America, the alarm is sounding...

Jesus said in Matthew 24:38-39, that the last days would be that of the days of Noah. He said, "For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them away. So shall the coming of the Son of Man be."  

The Lord, in His mercy, gives us signs as warnings, and even confirmations of the seasons which we are in. Have you noticed all the historic flooding that has taken place in 2016?

I found it interesting that in the beginning of 2015, the Lord gave me a word titled, The Storm is Coming. I began to warn America of impending judgement due to our refusal to repent. Several weeks ago, the Lord gave me a vision; this time He said, "The Storm is Here..." 

Since last Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 2015), until now, God has searched the hearts of those who claim Him as Lord. He has searched our motives to see if we are truly eager for His return, and awaiting, or is the desire of our hearts merely earth bound.

The truth is, many in the church have fallen asleep. They have crawled into their coffins, fluffed their pillows, and closed the casket doors. Many were expecting cataclysmic events to unfold last September, as was foreseen in dreams and visions. But when things did not unfold as expected, many began to attack and curse those who had sounded the alarm. Months later, that same majority began to place their faith and hope in a new election. Two-thirds of the church began a near full-blown worship of a presidential hopeful, believing that good times would return once again, despite our continual decay of truth and morality. And it seemed as though all the warnings from the modern-day Jeremiahs, Ezekiels, and Elijahs had faded into the distant horizon.

Oh foolish church, hast thou forgotten the parable of the wicked servant, who because his master had delayed, began to mistreat his fellow servants? Did not the master of the house return at an hour that he least expected? (Luke 12:45-46) It is not also written that when they say, "peace" and "safety" that sudden destructive would fall upon them? (1 Thessalonians 5:3) And just like the people in the time of Noah, judgement will come at an hour that you least expect.

Saints, the door to the ark is closing. The lukewarm are being vomited out of the Body of Christ. The time has come when you are either for Him, or you are against Him. No more gray areas. No more building your treasures in this life. To be a friend to the world, is to be an enemy of God (James 4:4). Understand that God is Holy, and He requires you to live Holy (1 Peter 1:16). It's not a suggestion, it's a must. Christ is only coming for the pure in heart; for those who have washed their robes and made them clean before Him.

There will be a final awakening in America; but it will be parallel with catastrophe, not good times. And only those who have remained faithful, those who have been refined, will be the front-runners in the final move. God will preserve His own, so that they can lead others through the darkness, and into the light.

Be ready. Stay Alert. Look Up.

Are You An Inbred Christian?



One of the things that has plagued the church today is what I call the "Inbred Christian". What is meant by this? It happens when a church, congregation or an individual believer has no more relation to the outside world, but instead has its own "Christian Churchy Culture". When believers do this, they end up segregating themselves from the very world that needs their influence the most. And what one doesn't know is that you can get so into the "Christian culture", that you can actually lose your connection with the Spirit of the Lord, miss your purpose, and eventually become weaker.

See, if you’re not stepping out and taking new ground for the Lord, advancing the Gospel and sharing it with unbelievers, you are at risk of becoming an inbred Christian. Why did YHVH-God eventually ban inbreeding in the Torah? Because genetically it led to weakened immune systems, which made one to be more vulnerable to diseases, and if you're diseased, you cannot survive.

If you keep a child in a dirt and germ free environment for years, what will happen once that child visits the outside world? They will become deathly ill because their body will not know how to cope and fight off infection. The same thing happens with us the spirit realm. The Lord did not call us out of darkness, into the light to only stay in the light. What's the point? Do you go home at night and turn on every light in the house to see? What is the benefit of a hundred lights being in the same room? None. But if you turn on one light in the midst of the darkness, well then, now it's worth goes a long way. When you only hang out with the light, you can forget where you came from and what the whole point was. Jesus tells us that the whole point of being the light of the world is so that our light shines before men that the Father will be glorified (Matthew 5:14-16). See Christ was the light that shine in the darkness (John 1:4-5); this was His purpose of coming. But the Pharisees couldn't comprehend this, and they criticized Him for mingling with the poor, the sick, whores, tax collectors, murders, drunks and the Gentiles. They missed the point; it was for the sick that He came; for those who had lost their way in the dark. He was and is the light that shines in the darkness so that those who are lost can now see their way. It’s the fallow ground that bears the most fruit. Fruit trees next to fruit trees are not going to get picked. The fruit will eventually rot and fall to the ground; a waste.

It's time to come out of our "inbred" state of mind. Instead of sitting around the table debating about denominations, feasts, Sabbaths, my church, my pastor, race, which you should eat or drink, or how should you clothe yourselves, we should be out in the field, reaping the harvest; reaching "The Least of These" mentioned in Matthew 25:31-46. Get out of your comfort zone and begin transforming the areas that have not been touched yet. The Spirit of the Lord cannot be exercised to its fullest in your life while in a comfort zone.

The One Who Inhabits Eternity...




For Thus Saith the High and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; "I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones". -Isaiah 57:15

The word 'inhabits" in Hebrew is 'shakan', which means to lodge, stay or dwell; to camp out in a tent. YHVH-God sets up His tent in eternity; for He owns eternity. When we set up a tent here on earth, we do it all at once; in that moment of time and space. But God's tent spans across eternity. In Him, all eternity, past, present and future, are as one. All of our time in this in between thing called life, is covered by the presence of Almighty God. 
      
The Lord continues in this scripture by saying that He dwells in the high and holy place; with those who have a contrite (which means repentant or chastened) and humble spirit. So the One who inhabits eternity is saying that those who are humble and repentant will also dwell with Him, and He with them...in eternity. Psalm 91:1 tells us that "he who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty". Both Isaiah 57:15 and Psalm 91:1 are interconnected. In order to dwell with and in the presence of the Almighty, you must come up to the high and holy place. And His place, His tent, covers all things; but you must come up. You cannot dwell in the low and dark places where the dirt and creatures lie; you must come up! You must come up to where the eagles soar and nest. And how do you get there? With a repentant heart and a humbled spirit. There, you will find Him; there is where you will find rest...His Shalom, and He said, there, is where He will revive you. 

Have you allowed the sins of your past to hold you captive? Have you allowed your circumstances to define your present and your future? Go to the high and holy place; and instead of allowing life, people and the enemy to define you, let God Almighty define you; let Him set you free, for He came to set the captive free. YHVH-God is greater than your past, present and future because He is a part of your past, present and future. So do not fear what your physical eyes see, or cannot see; trust the one who gave you sight in the first place, and know that He is already there. He has already set up a tent over your eternity...so abide in Him.

2016 And Beyond...



Saints, I want you to know, that at the end of the day, when it's all said and done, the Word of God is true. Jesus is still returning, the Rapture is still real, judgment is still at hand. Darkness and wickedness is still increasing, and time is still running out.

The truth is, today there are pastors, prophets, apostles etc, that are merchandising the gospel, selling signs and wonders, and prostituting prophecy, and this should not be. No one should have to pay money to receive the truth, deliverance, healing, impartations or prophetic words. If Christ came to give the gift of salvation, and a gift is free, then how did we come about justifying that it is for sale? This is not the church that Jesus was talking about when He told Peter, "Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). Most of these churches today have actually become the gates of hell. We are not living according to John 17:21 when Jesus prayed, "Father, make us one (meaning the church), even as you and I are one." No, we are divided. We compete against one another, we're full of slander and gossip, ridicule and judgment. Then we wonder why God is not freely moving in our lives. Today we are living as the church of Laodicea mentioned in Revelation 3:14-22. We are the church that thinks we have everything and all the answers, but don't realize that we are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked before the Lord.

I want you to know that no manner amount of dreams, visions, or prophetic words are going to get you into the Kingdom of Heaven. No matter what I've shared on what I've dreamed or been shown, I've always indicated that in the end, YOU MUST KNOW GOD FOR YOURSELF. I have said it before, and I will say it again and again; stop following man. Mankind is flawed; FOLLOW CHRIST! Know His voice for yourself, and stop looking for heaven in people. Know that you WILL be mocked, scoffed, persecuted, rejected, and some even killed.  But the prophets of old went through this, and the first century church went through it. Our brother and sisters overseas are currently going through this, and most of all, Christ suffered through it. But in the end, those who stand even unto death, will be victorious, and we will reign with Him.   

2016 will be a year that the Glory of God will be shown. In other words, the glory of man will be removed. Many will come to the knowledge that the Word of God is true, and that He will not be mocked. The same God that is slow to anger and plenty in mercy, is the same God who said that His Spirit will not always strive with man. Humility and obedience is the key in 2016. There is still a little time left to be refined by His fire, so embrace it. But the time is coming when you will be locked into your status. Judgment has already begun and will continue to accelerate this year. Don't be fooled by the media, listen to what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches. Keep watch, stay alert. Don't slumber because you did not see His return on a particular day, or the world collapse in a particular week. Know that His word will not return void. Be encouraged. Our brothers and sisters of old longed to see the times that we live in. They predicated these things through the Spirit of the Lord centuries before they would ever come to pass. And now they sleep. But the day is fast approaching when the trumpet will sound with a mighty blast, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then those that are alive and still remaining (in truth) will be caught up together with them to meet Him in the clouds.

May 2016 be a year that the Glory of God be revealed on the earth.

Tis' The Season?



It's interesting that at the same time, every year, the same people come out of their caves and from underneath their rocks, stretching their wings; the Sadducees, the Pharisees and the Atheists.

If the "Holiday Season" was so evil, then why has Satan worked so hard to have it removed, discredited, abolished or persecuted? Last time I checked, the scriptures stated that Satan will not come against Satan.

Personally, this is my favorite time of the year. For me, it is another opportunity to give thanks for all that the Father has given, and to share with the lost the reason why Christ came into the world. I have found that more souls have come to Christ in sharing the story of His reason, then condemning those for celebrating it for mere argument of it's inaccuracy in date. I've always stood on "to each, it's own" and as individuals filled with the Holy Spirit, we must obey our convictions. I, for instance, have never had a Christmas tree in my home. My children don't even know what that's like. But I grew up with them in my parent's house, and it didn't make my mother any less of a powerful woman of God, than she is today. So dare I walk into a home of another believer, or unbeliever and condemn them for such? Who am I? Perhaps the most important question is; does it determine one's salvation? The answer is no.

Last night, I asked my kids what did they want to do, or where did they want to go for the Holiday Season. Their response was that they wanted to find families who couldn't afford a Christmas for their children, and bless them. So we agreed to find families this year, preferably unbelievers, so that we can share the love of Christ and minister His word while physically filling a void.

Remember; Christ condemns no one. Always obey the voice of the Lord for yourself, because only you will stand before Him. Educate those who lack knowledge; don't ridicule, slander, reject or condemn; this is not love. More importantly, remember that you were not called out of darkness into the light to only hang out in the light. You were brought into to light so that His light in you will be taken back into the darkness to shine. What value does light have with light? None. It is the light that shines in the darkness that brings forth life. So take every opportunity to make a difference. Time is short; the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

Romans 5:19-21 Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous. God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Satan's Purpose In Your Life...



The scriptures tell us that all things work together for good to those who love God, and to those who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). But in Matthew 4:1, we are told that the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness to be tested by the devil. So does this mean that Satan plays an important role in fulfilling our purpose? Absolutely!

We need to know that the Father uses all things; even that which is evil, for His good purpose. YHVH-God is in control of all things, and everything is under His control. In Isaiah 45:7, the Lord says, "I formed the light, and created the darkness. I make peace (Shalom) and create chaos (Ra)." So even Satan is used by YHVH-God, because He created him as well. Satan is not a creator, he is the creation; which means he has an end, for all creation will come to an end. So we need not to fear that which has an end. Fear and reverence the one who is constant and eternal.

Jesus was lead into the wilderness to be tested by Satan. This was done so that He would come out of it approved for ministry. So the purpose of coming face-to-face with the enemy was to prepare Christ for His purpose and ministry. Thus, we can conclude that YHVH-God used even the devil to prepare His Son.

We as Saints must know that in life, we WILL be attacked by the enemy; we will go through trails, tribulations and temptations, just like Christ did (in fact, the very reason Christ is our perfect mediator and High Priest to the Father is because He faced all of the same trails and testings as we do, yet He did not sin -Hebrews 4:15). However, know that YHVH-God will use all of these things, even the attacks of the enemy, for your purpose, and for the good. He will use these things to make you grow, to conform you to His image, and to prepare you for the ministry and the purpose that He has placed in you.

So when you go through trials, tribulations, or tests, remember it’s not to destroy you. It is there for your refinement, and purification. Remember; God is faithful. He will not allow the test to be more than you can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13). If you're being faced with it, then He has already equipped you with all that you need to get through it. So pass the test. It is written; "And they overcame the devil by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; they that loved not their lives, even unto death (Revelation 12:11). Every ministry begins with a testimony; and the testimony begins with you passing the test.

The King Is Coming...


Note: Blog was accidentally deleted and then reposted. Original post was October 5, 2015.

But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming, and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. -Matthew 24:48-51

I have found that many in the church who looked for the rapture or something catastrophic to happen on a specific date in September, and found that no collection of events happened on that day, took to bashing others by calling them false prophets and heretics. Then they continued on with their everyday lives mocking end-time prophecy, or by quoting that famous verse, "No one knows the day or the hour."

Are we really that dense as a church? The first thing I want to say is that no one should be giving "specific dates" for events like the rapture anyhow. But just because the world didn't all fall apart at the seams in one day, doesn't mean judgement isn't coming or that we're not in the season for the return of the Lord. For four years people have said that an asteroid was going to hit the Atlantic and cause a tsunami, for the last three years, that something bad was going to happen on October 1st, and on, and on. Even when the Lord gave me a time frame for the economic collapse beginning at the last four months of this year and rolling into 2016, someone started saying that I said the stock market would crash on September 23rd.

I was talking to the Lord regarding all of this, and He reminded me of the scripture above about wicked servant. We need to make sure we are not falling into this category with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, by mocking, bashing and scoffing at those who didn't reach a specific date or time. We must remember that Isaiah prophesied the birth of Christ seven-hundred and fifty years before He came. And there are still prophecies of Daniel, Ezekiel and others that have yet to come to pass, twenty-five hundred years later. So are they false prophets? The disciples were preaching that they were living in the last days and believed that the return of the Lord would happen in their lifetime. Were they heretics? The answer is no.

No matter what, we are living in the last days; living in season of the Bridegroom's return. We are closer to the Lord’s coming than any other generation of believers in history. The Lord is coming to reign as King and to judge the earth. If a Judge was coming to your house, you’d make sure that it was clean and in order. If the Judge’s arrival were a long way off, you might be lax. But the closer you'd get to the Judge’s arrival, the more alert you would become. Since we are the generation chosen to be closer to the Judge’s coming than any other, we need to be even more holy, sanctified and sober.

The King is coming. The Judge is coming. So live in a manner worthy of Him, ready for Him. He is the Bridegroom, and He is coming only for a spotless Bride.
