Fasting and Prayer


Luke 2:37 and she was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart the temple, serving with fastings and prayers night and day.

... So after more fasting and prayer, the men laid their
hands on them and sent them on their way.

... So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and fasting.
I also wore rough burlap and sprinkled myself with ashes.

Fasting and prayer go together like a hand in a glove.  The Lord created fasting and prayer to work together.  The reason you are reading this today is because the longest this brother had ever fasted before (years ago) is one day and that one day was rough enough that he never did it again.  Well, this year for the first time in a lifetime, the Spirit of the Lord has been teaching and nudging this brother to fast.  What has the Lord taught this brother about fasting?  Part of the reason there was trouble fasting in the past, is there was no prayer asking for help to fast.  The way it is designed is....fasting helps you to pray, and praying helps you to fast-they are mutually, divinely supportive.

Is the only benefit of fasting, being able to pray more effectively?  No.  The benefits of fasting are so overwhelming, so extensive, so pervasive that this brother is convinced if a 1-3 day fast could be contained in a pill form it would sell for $1000 or more per pill and people would gladly pay it.  The Lord gave it to us for free.....Would you like to live longer?  Fasting helps with that too.

Now brother D is starting to understand why our Great God created the fast.  It is also interesting that at no point previously did the Spirit emphasize this age old truth to brother D, but this year He did.  Why?  Don't know but the problems brother D had fasting in the past, is now a problem that exists only in the past.  Now, through prayer that asks for help to be able to fast, brother D can fast for more than one day.

The Lord really, really knows what He is doing.  He does not always explain Himself but when He does it leaves this brother speechless.  If you need help, if you need a breakthrough of some kind-pray to be able to fast and fast to be able to pray.  Ask the Lord for what you need then sit back and watch.

One of the most encouraging things in this life is the fact that we serve a God who answers prayer.  We have the privilege of approaching the Creator of the universe with our requests and get answers from Him.  Stop for a moment and consider deeply the implications of that idea.  Most people could not get a minute to talk to the president of their country but you have the privilege of 24/7, 365 day access to the Creator of all things.  Wow.

Todays note to you was to pass along these encouragements from the Spirit of the Lord.  We have access to power and resources that most of mankind would kill for.  All we have to do is ask our Father for these things through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Fast to pray and pray to fast.  Watch what happens....Glory to God.

Who is Really Running Things Down Here?

Rev 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.

Psalm 119:91 Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you.

^^The Lord our God is really running things down here in some ways that are quite amazing.

I was lamenting to the Lord last night about the left's incessant hypocrisy, lies and especially their insistence that we have no peace with Russia when He gave me this beautiful insight into what He is doing.  Here it is:

Trump as the American President and the left's hatred of Trump is all part of the Lord's plan (as we might have guessed but how so)?  Trump is a tool to implement the Lord's timeline and not the world's.  The net effect of having Trump in office and the globalist left hate him with every fiber of their being is to delay the implementation of the new world (satanic) order.  Some commentators call what is happening to the left "Trump derangement syndrome" and I don't think that description is far off.  The Lord (through Trump) has caused these enemies of humanity to lose their minds, so much so that they are actually willing to sacrifice some of their own goals in order to hate and obstruct Trump.  Again, so what?  So...

As long as we have the left, the globalists and/or the so called deep state constantly pushing for an adversarial relationship with Russia, the new world order has to sit on ice.  In order to implement the N.W.O. there must be multi-polar cooperation that we are nowhere close to today.  As of today, the primary hindrance to moving the NWO's agenda forward is the left's hatred for Trump!  If Trump is for it, it does not matter what "it" is, they are against it-even to their own detriment!  Glory to God.

The globalist plan today is for America (the best candidate along with western Europe to fulfill end time Babylon prophesy) to be a unipolar world hegemon.  The most likely scenario to fulfill end time prophesy is a multi-polar world without a world hegemon like America.  Being the deal maker that he is, Trump without the opposition of the left might have been able to move the world to that multi-polar cooperative place necessary to implement the NWO.  As things stand, the leftist/globalist cabal is so inflamed with hatred that they are willing to cut off their own noses despite their face in order to "stop Trump" which has the net effect of stalling the implementation of the N.W.O.

Truly amazing.  We serve a very great God.  All glory and honor and power be to the Lord our God forever and ever.  Amen!

grace and peace be with you

Only Preach The Good News?

I hear voices today telling us the Church needs to get away from "doom and gloom" preaching and only preach the good news.  Really?  Read the prophets and the apostles and tell me if they only preached the good news?  When I read the prophets I see a lot of "bad news" being preached.  In fact, I just opened to the book of Isaiah today and right off the bat the prophet gets into the "doom and gloom."  That Bible of yours is absolutely chock full of the doom and gloom todays cotton candy preachers do not want to hear.

Trump was pulled into the Divine timeline to keep it on track with the timing the Lord has ordained for the end.  Trump will not change one single Word written to us about what is coming upon this world in the days ahead.  Most of what is coming for this world is absolutely horrific.  But I guess we should sugar coat that message for the "no doom and no gloom" message that has gained traction today.

The message in the Bible has not changed from Bush, to Clinton, back to Bush, to Obama and now Trump.  We are to pray and repent, stay in the Word and walk with our God day in and day out.  Every Word He uttered is coming to pass at the speed He has ordained.  The flavor of the month preaching tells us that America is not under judgement.  Really?  I would argue that all of the previous presidents were judgements upon America, every one of them.  We have been taken to lower and lower lows every 4 years, but America is not under judgement...…

What does the Word say?

Is 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee earnestly: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.

Trump is a reprieve from the judgement we have been under but many, many problems remain.  Since Trump has taken office the Lord has done a wonderful job of flushing the enemies of mankind out into the open.  The globalist politicians and their accomplices in government beaurocracy, the mainstream media and a whole host of major corporations have shown their true anti-Christ colors in the recent past.  Seeing the forces arrayed against us has caused some to repent and pray in a way they have not before.  Repentance and prayer can go a long way toward averting judgement and disaster for a people and their land

2 Chron 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Anyone who comes along trying to sell you a one dimensional God needs to be immediately characterized as a false prophet.  Our God is a God of the carrot and the stick.  Yes, He comforts us and loves on us but that is not all He does.  Does our God threaten us?  Yes, over and over again.  A simple example here illustrates both:

Gal 6:8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

This is a threat---Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction;
This is a loving promise---whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

For good measure He is our Lord talking directly to the 7 Churches of Revelation:

Rev 2:2I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. 6But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

This is a threat----- 5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

This is a glorious promise---- 7He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

This is what the Lord says about todays cotton candy, preach the pleasant but avoid everything unpleasant preachers, teachers and so called "prophets:"

2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

Our God spent alot of time on the "doom and gloom" message this world does not want to hear.  Most of the prophets and almost the entire book of Revelation is doom and gloom (for this world and those who adhere to its ways).  That is a warning both to the world and to the Church:  

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

2024

There have been 4 major volcanic eruptions this year that I can count off the top of my head:

Hawaii

Guatemala

The Philippines

and

Japan

What's going on?  Grand solar minimum.  While the fake news tells us all that we are the cause of all the earth's problems, the world and the sun that powers it are experiencing some major changes.  Why is it that the fake news and the governments of the world don't want to admit the truth?  Because the truth points directly to our God and that they cannot accept.  Everything our Lord told us was going to happen is in the process of happening.  How can people fall asleep while these major changes take place in the world around us?  Because 1.  its not happening directly to them (yet) and 2.  It takes place over time, usually years instead of days.

What does any of this have to do with 2024?  I have seen evidence pop up over and over again that now cannot be ignored.  Remember the great American solar eclipse of 2017 that crossed the nation from west to east?  Remember there is a follow up great American eclipse coming exactly 7 years later which falls....guess when?  2024.  If Trump wins re-election, guess when he will be winding down his presidency?  2024.  I'm seeing forecasts by the financial legend Martin Armstrong that put major world financial turning points in 2024.  I'm seeing where sites that tell us we are experiencing global cooling not global warming pointing to the worst of the solar minimum effects being see guess when?  Around 2024.

So what?  So major, major changes are on the way.

Rev 6:7And when the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature
 say, “Come!”  8Then I looked and saw a pale horse. Its rider’s name was Death, and Hades
 followed close behind. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill by 
sword, by famine, by plague, and by the beasts of the earth.

What does this mean for us?  It means time is short, and we should pray.  Yes, as opposed to many who call themselves Christians yet deny the power of prayer (they claim its "doing nothing" while voting etc is "doing something."  <---the about="" all="" and="" apostasy="" can="" change="" changes="" do="" everything.="" heart="" impact="" is="" nbsp="" of="" p="" prayer="" something="" there="" things.="" touch="" very="" we="">
Mark 11:22And Jesus answering, says to them, “Have faith from God. 23Truly I say to you that whoever shall say to this mountain, ‘Be you taken away and be you cast into the sea,’ and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he says takes place, it will be done for him. 24Because of this I say to you, all things whatever praying, you also ask, believe that you receive, and it will be to you.

Ask, seek, knock, believe and watch what happens.  Our God never told us to watch what happens then roll over and play dead.  Our God's definition of "doing something" is radically different from the people of this world.  The people of this world idea of doing something is to engage the carnal...they get their shovels out to move molehills. The child of God gets on their knees in prayer and moves mountains.  Yes, many times the Lord will tell us to get our shovels out to move molehills as well but lets be very clear about who is doing all of the heavy lifting and how exactly that heavy lifting is being done.

Zech 4:6 So he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty.

Wickedness in High Places: Great Britain

Recently Tommy Robinson (a UK citizen) was arrested for livestreaming a Muslim rape gang trial in Britain.  So what?  So people in high places in Britain are 1.  actively protecting Muslim rapists while 2. actively suppressing their own Christian citizens.  And?  So far the response by a few citizens has been to protest.  Unfortunately, the UK government could care less about its own citizens protesting.  They have an agenda and that agenda is the promotion of Islam.

I would suggest to Christians in the UK, Germany, France and every other country where Islam is being actively promoted by the government while Christianity is being suppressed, to use weapons that really fight darkness.  The way you fight darkness is with light.

Matt 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

Right now, the governments of the west think they have the upper hand over their citizens, and in most cases they are correct because the citizens are not praying in the answers to their problems.  The governments of the west are employing the power of the state against their own citizens.  In order to counter that, Christians should be employing the power of heaven against those governments through prayer and fasting.

Instead of organizing outside government buildings to protest they should be organizing to pray and fast together to bring down the wickedness in high places in their governments and over their country.  The problem starts in the spiritual realm then it extends down to the physical realm.  What  do the spirits over the U.K. care if people protest?  They could care less.  Start praying and fasting for righteousness to be restored and for wicked strongholds in high places to be brought down and yes, they will start caring in a hurry....

Prayer works.  Prayer moves mountains.  Prayer raises up and brings things down.  Prayer brings to bear the power of our Father's Kingdom from heaven down to this earth.  If you want to see real change, then really pray.  Its that simple.  Fast, pray and continue to do so in faith and patience and watch the powers of this world shudder....

Patience


Rev 3:8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

The Lord is speaking to the Churches ^^ in Revelation 2-3 and what does He say is required to be kept from the hour of temptation?  Patience.....Note carefully the words the Lord uses:  1. Patience and 2. Hold fast.  What is He saying?  Just hold on.  These are not aggressive, offense words.  These are defense words.  Buckle down, dig in and wait.  The way the Spirit of the Lord speaks to this writer through the Word is to 'highlight' in the minds eye and the spirit certain sections of the Word when it is being read.  This section was highlighted for your writer today.

An open door has been set before us.  No man can close it.  Glory to God.  We are in need of faith and patience.

Heb 6:2That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Time is passing by quickly.  Next month we will be halfway through 2018!  This writer will encourage you with the Words the Spirit has used to encourage me:

Pr 3:3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
5Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.a

Time is short and growing shorter every day.  One day soon all of us will be standing before the Lord our God to answer for our days here on earth.  Let us be doing those things that are good and pleasing in His sight.  Let us do the good our hands find to do and walk with our God in love and faithfulness.  Then on that day we stand before Him we will not be ashamed.

2 Peter 1:3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Real Trouble Unless The Lord Intervenes

One thing the Lord has made clear through recent events (like the election of Trump) is He can intervene at any time to reverse or delay current events heading in the wrong direction.  Hillary looked like a shoe in for president which would have hastened the entire world over the cliff into world communism and chaos.  Thankfully, the Lord had other plans.  What we appear to have now (at least politically) is a delay that have shifted events down an alternative timeline.

So what is the real trouble the world is facing today?  This:



Toward the end of the video he puts up a chart that shows what kind of trouble this world is facing starting as early as the end of this year.  Think about the possibility of food becoming more scarce combined with a global population that is increasingly at each other's throats.  Think about how hostile people have become with each other today when shelves are still fully stocked with food, the electricity is still on and water still makes it into your house on demand.  Then imagine what would happen once the already hostile population started to become inconvenienced by one another over basic necessities.

Now that we have imagined how things will be let us consider what the Lord said is coming:

Rev 6:3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat
thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there
was given unto him a great sword.


The Third Seal: Famine
5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see.
And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in
his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of
wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not
the oil and the wine.


The Fourth Seal: Death
7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say,
Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him
was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth
part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts
of the earth.


Looking at the information we have at our fingertips it would not be a far stretch to imagine the tribulation starting anytime over the next year or two.  That said, could the Lord perform another Divine intervention and push the timeline out again?  Sure, He could.  The question is, will He?

As the guy in the video says, this agricultural crisis should be front page news for every news outlet in the world, but instead we get "everything will be fine as soon as Trump is out of office."  Trump should be the least of anyone's worries.

So where does all this leave us?  It leaves us with a serious and ever increasing need to pray.  We need to be praying for peace (while 100% of western politicians are trying to instigate war).  We need to pray for our food supply (while the worlds animals and plant life-our food supply-is being eradicated.  We need to pray for all mankind that they will turn to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.  We need to pray without ceasing about everything, all the time because the fabric that holds this world together is quickly coming unraveled.

Why is the fabric that holds this world together coming unraveled?

Col 1:17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

In Him, in Christ, all things hold together.  Remove Jesus Christ and the results are predictable.

If you want to know what the good news is in all this doom and gloom, its this:  the Church, His Body is still on this earth.  What does that mean?  It means this:

Matt 5:13“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

This world still has salt and light in it, and that salt and light is you and me.  The true Body of Christ has been given power over all things.  We have been given power to move mountains:

Matt 17:20 He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

You read that ^^ correctly, nothing is impossible for us.  The one thing this world hates as much as the Jew is the Christian.  Little do they understand that we are the only thing standing between them and hell on earth.
