This Time It Is Different

I cannot be dogmatic about this because the Lord does not speak to me in "thus sayith the Lord's."  He never has, but I do know how He does speak to me.

We have heard about the Blood Moons and Shemitah now so much it has almost desensitized some of us.  What is going on and why is brother D writing this?

The events in the world around us appear to be pointing to some kind of asteroid or meteor strike off the east coast of the United States.  Some of the evidence that points to this can be found here:

link 3

link 4

The Fed is moving away from the East Coast, the Military of United States and Canada are moving away from the East Coast.  Military headquarters are moving back into Cheyenne mountain after 10 years of it being vacant.

Jade Helm military exercise is being held in the Desert Southwest, why?  Its far removed from the East Coast.  Walmarts shutting down with no notice and completely non-sensical reasons.

What does it point to?




and This

Rev 6:12I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
15Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide usf from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17For the great day of theirg wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”

It has been awhile since the celestial threat to this earth has been written about here, but it appears the time to start writing about it again is upon us.  Why?  If the Lord Himself had not been nudging me about all this you would not be reading any of this here.

What has the Lord been impressing me with over the past two weeks?  Words of comfort for His Church.  And, today on the way to my son's football workout I was driving when I said in my head "Lord,  I would not choose this to happen right now if it does not have to happen" and a mental reply came right back "if it does not happen soon, is it okay with you that the wickedness and corruption in the world continues on as it is now?"  That is when I had to, it is not okay that the wickedness and corruption in the world continue as it does now.  This thing has to happen.  And as if this was not enough, He immediately followed this up with this:

Psalm 37
18The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,
and their inheritance will endure forever.
19In times of disaster they will not wither;
in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.
20But the wicked will perish:
Though the Lord’s enemies are like the flowers of the field,
they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.

I want to impress upon you what this ^^^ is not.  This is not a figment of my imagination or an interpretation of some nebulous "I think the Lord might have said" kind of thing.  I know how the Lord speaks to me and what you have read above is what He said. This "bad thing" that is coming is necessary, it is mandatory.  And....we should comfort ourselves as the Lord says above He gave me Psalm 37, we spend our days under the Lord's care.  Especially applicable is:

19In times of disaster they will not wither;
in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

No interpretation necessary it is what it is.  Now tie it all in with the Blood Moons and the Shemitah and whats going on with the military and Walmarts etc and you start to get the picture.  This time it is different...

The World Is Falling Apart

While I was watching this video it became apparent that this earth is literally and figuratively falling apart.

Also, while watching this video and seeing the violent destruction the Lord popped this gem into my head:

Col 1:17  (different versions all saying the same thing)
New International Version
He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
New Living Translation
He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.
English Standard Version
And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
New American Standard Bible
He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
King James Bible
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

So, this world has rejected the glue that holds all things together.  It is and always has been Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Also, recently I watched a video about CERN where a guy was trying to explain what they are doing there.  More or less he said they are looking to deconstruct matter down to the particle level in order to find the 'glue' that holds everything together.  Even they admit they are looking for the "God particle."

How ironic that they have rejected what they say they are looking for.  Colossians 1:17 tells us clearly what holds everything together.  It is our Lord and Savior.  Reject Him and everything, absolutely everything falls apart.

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

All things, leaves nothing excepted.  It includes everything.

As we watch these things go from bad to worse, remember how this can be solved:  Jesus Christ.  Most will inevitably reject this answer (Matt 7:13-14) but we are looking for the few, the remnant who will accept Him. 

We can be certain of this, until the very last moment on the second of the last minute of the last hour of the last day that our Lord's grace is extended to this world the following activity will continue:

Luke 15:3Then Jesus told them this parable: 4“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

This world quickly overlooks and forgets the ones and two's.  Everything here revolves around the masses.  Our Lord teaches us that His kingdom is radically different.  The one matters greatly.  If the ones and twos did not matter, writing would have ceased here years ago.  If only one soul is inspired or encouraged by the words written here, the Lord's direction is to continue writing.  So be it.

This world has rejected Him who holds all things together.  If we remember our Lord in obedience, faith and thanksgiving He can and will hold our personal worlds together. 

grace and peace

Overwhelming: The Way He Likes It

I was thinking our situation recently and it occurred to me just how overwhelming the odds are against us.  Think about it:

Chemtrails-kill us
Genetically modified foods-kill us
vaccines -kill us or severely disable us (see Bill Gates comments on population control)
The legal systems of this world-corrupt
the governments of the world, all of them-corrupt
The media-corrupt
The natural world- is dieing (dead birds, fish, plants, you name it, volcano, earthquake, drought, famine, etc)
Economic systems-collapsing from corruption
social fabric-disintegrating through self interest/lack of love

If I missed anything ^^ fill in the blank for me.

So, basically everything that can go wrong is going wrong.  And, ironically enough it is situations like this where I'm not sure I can say the Lord likes it, but He certainly chooses these kinds of situations to shine.  Examples?

Israel backed up against the Red Sea with Pharaoh bearing down on them with no obvious escape route.

Gideon-Judges 7:2 The LORD said to Gideon, "You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, 'My own strength has saved me.'

In other words the Lord wanted to make sure they knew who was doing the heavy lifting here.  He told them to leave almost all their men behind too ensure the situation was impossible enough to prove the Lord's point.

David living in caves hiding for his life fleeing from Saul

Lazarus: John 11

1Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2(This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”
4When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” 5Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, 7and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”
8“But Rabbi,” they said, “a short while ago the Jews there tried to stone you, and yet you are going back?”
9Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light. 10It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.”
11After he had said this, he went on to tell them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.”
12His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.” 13Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep.
14So then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead, 15and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”

Now really think about this one.  What does the Lord tell us?

1.  The Lord really loved Martha, her sister and Lazarus
2.  So when He heard Lazarus was sick He delayed two more days?

You read in correctly.   The Lord loved them, so He delayed to make the situation worse/impossible, THEN He headed to Lazarus.

So getting back to where we started with that nice no so little list I started at the top.  Things are looking (pleasantly?) impossible for us these days.  Just how the Lord seems to like it. 

Why?  The answer appears to be twofold.  First, to display His power on our behalf.  Second, to test our faith. 

Understandably, we do not enjoy these situations as much as He does.  I think enjoy might be an overstatement.  These situations are necessary.  We absolutely do not like them, but we need them.

What do we believe when our faith is pressed back against the wall?  Thats what days like today are designed to test.  All of us are being tested.

This brother has had his faith tested in the past, literally pressed back against a wall and what did he decide?  Where else do I have to turn?  There is no where else, and for me that makes things infinitely easier.  Who else has been the God of my life?  There has been no other.  Who else has shown me mercy, and kindness, and comforted me when there was no human there to do it?  I know of only one.  The Lord God of Heaven, our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Whatever it is that comes our way, we face it down with the Lord our God.  Thats it.  There is no plan B, there is no other option.  I certainly cannot squirm my way out of the impossible situation we masses of humanity find ourselves in.  If there is an answer (and there always is :P) it is in Christ and through Christ and that is it.  I and you do not have to figure it out.  We trust our God and He will figure it out.  I am not strong enough or smart enough to do what needs to be done in the days ahead but our God is and He lives in us.  Glory to God.

Keep the faith and watch what the Lord will do.

The Blood Moons and Tabernacles

The lunar tetrad we have seen in 2014-2015 points to two festivals:  passover and sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).

I thank the Lord for pointing me to the answer/revelation concerning what He is pointing to with the Tabernacles blood moons.  This makes me feel slightly foolish for not looking any further than a definition of what sukkot/feast of tabernacles is.

Clearly at least part (and probably all) of our answer lies here:  Zechariah 14.

 What do we see in Zechariah 14?

The day of the Lord, the chastisement of Israel:

1A day of the Lord is coming, Jerusalem, when your possessions will be plundered and divided up within your very walls.
2I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.

Then we see the chastisement of the world:

  3Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle.

 So guess what?  The rabbis who said blood moons are a bad sign for Israel and Solar eclipses are a bad sign for the world do have a scriptural leg to stand on because what we are seeing in 2014-2015 is precisely that.  Blood moons and a full solar eclipse that ties directly into Zechariah 14 which tells us clearly that Israel is in for a rough ride, and so is the world.

 Without any need for interpretation the Lord Himself directly ties this in with Tabernacles:

12This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13On that day people will be stricken by the Lord with great panic. They will seize each other by the hand and attack one another. 14Judah too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected—great quantities of gold and silver and clothing. 15A similar plague will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.
16Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 17If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain. 18If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The Lordb will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 19This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.

Clearly we have had this gem sitting in plain sight and overlooked by everyone, myself included.

Glory to God.

Noah, Escape, Rapture, Door

Long ago I stopped trying to debate those who believe something else about the rapture of the Church.  If someone's faith tells them they will be here during the tribulation period, who am I to argue with them.  That same faith they have in being here during the time of Jacob's trouble may ensure that they do indeed stay here.  As they believe so they receive.

This post is not for those people.  We should have one overriding desire, to know the truth.  What does the Word say and what does our faith say?  Two different people can read the same verse of scripture and walk away with two different meanings as we have seen over and over again with the rapture.  What we believe matters.

Matt 8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would." And his servant was healed at that moment.

What does the Word say?

Psalm 27
1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came on me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.
5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up on a rock.

I see language like this throughout the Word of God.  What is He telling us?  He is a real shelter.  We do not have to spritualize any language here.  He said it, He meant it.

What happened with Noah?  In the time of trouble was he hidden away?  Yes, just like Psalm 27 says.

What else do we know about Noah?  He is directly connected to the unknown day and unknown hour:

Matt 24:36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

We should pay particular attention to this:

38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

Which refers to this:

Genesis 6:11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

What are we being told?  The very day it began to rain, Noah went into the ark.  That is the way it happened back then, and that is the way it will happen again.  We know with absolute certainty, not some man's opinion but God's Word tells us it will happen this way again:

38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

We are given the same angle on the Word by Luke here:

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Contrasting all the protests I hear from people who cry day and night that we must take the tribulation on the chin and endure all its horrors, I see alot of escapism in the Word of God.

Pray for escape?  That is precisely what our Lord told us to do.

Like who?  Like Noah, Noah is the example given.

Hide?  Yes, that is what the Lord told us here:

5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up on a rock.

A Door:

Gen 7:16And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

 (The Lord shut the door^^)

Keys?   Keys go into doors...

Rev 3:7And to the angel 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;
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.
Noah went through an open door and the Lord shut him into the ark.  As it was, so it will be again.  A door will be open and no man can shut it (who shut the door of the Ark?  The Lord shut it)

Rev 4:1After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter

An open door, an open door, the Lord shut Noah in...
38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

What is the bottom line?

What is coming will be like the days of Noah.  It was business as usual right up to the very day that Noah entered the ark and it began to rain.  We are seeing this around us today.  Yes, we see the storm clouds on the horizon, they appear to be directly overhead.  Does this match what the Lord said would happen according to the days of Noah?  It matches exactly. 

There was a door in the ark, there will be a door open in heaven.  What are doors used for?  People go through them.  This fact alone sorely vexes the pre-wrath and post-trib rapture believers.  How can they account for the doors in Rev 3 and 4?  It is an undeniable fact that people move through doors that is their stated purpose and yet we read nothing from the antagonists to explain to us who is moving through these doors?

It is not enough to speculate who is moving through the doors open in heaven.  The Bible has to prove it.  In Rev 3 and 4 there are doors open in heaven.  In Rev 5, there are "24" elders who have this testimony:

and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Can people out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation=24?
The key word there is "every."

Every kindred?  Yea, thats more than 24
Every tongue? Yea, thats more than 24
Every people?  Yea, thats more than 24
Every nation?  Yea, thats more than 24

A door was open in heaven in Rev 3 and Rev 4, then in Rev 5 we have a group of people from every kindred, tongue, people and nation in heaven.  In Rev 4 we read that these men have white rainment and crowns of gold.  Crowns?  Yes, that means they have been judged already.

 1 Peter 5:4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive ... And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

 Revelation 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so ... I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown

 Again, what is the point?  Someone is escaping something if there are men with crowns on their head in Rev 4, period.  How did they get into heaven and judged before the entirety of the tribulation starts if we all have to suffer through the tribulation?  If I can find just one example of where their theory (pre-wrath, post-trib) is wrong then it calls the entire theory into question.

The 24 elders in heaven in Rev 4-5 with crowns on their head did not and will not go through the tribulation from Rev 6 onward.  Why not?  How did they escape?  How does this fit into the theories of no escape, no hiding, no place of refuge we hear day and night from those who preach themselves into the tribulation?

Why should we say no to debate?  Because we are all about to find out who is right.  Events will prove out exactly that the Lord meant every Word of what He said.

What if I have it all wrong and there is no pre-trib rapture?  My faith is in Christ, I soldier on.  That's it. 

What if the pre-wrath and post-trib folks are wrong and there is a pre-trib rapture?  They might have a real problem.  If they receive according to their belief (and we know the Lord respects faith and belief) then they could end up in the tribulation when they could have escaped.

As a people we must know our God.  Noah escaped the flood, Israel escaped from Egypt, Israel will escape again:

Revelation 12:6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place ... The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by  God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

So how exactly do these ^^ people get to escape the horrors of the tribulation but all the rest of us are supposed to suck it up and take it on the chin (according to the antagonists)?

This is the difference between what God says and what men say.  Is there an escape?  Yes.  Are we told to pray for it?  Yes.  Will Christians be on earth during the tribulation?  Yes. 

Will all Christians who ever lived be on earth during the tribulation? NO.  That is a ridiculous question because Christians will die out of this world as we always have right up to the day of the tribulation beginning.  There is an escape we are told to pray for.  That escape is an escape from "all that is about to happen."  Let your faith decide for you what "all that is about to happen" means.

There are people preaching and teaching and raging until the veins pop out in their neck that there is no escape from the tribulation. 

Who are the most likely candidates for Christians populating the tribulation?  These people ^^.

As it was, so it will be again.  We were told to pray for escape from all that is about to happen.  I propose we do exactly that:

36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

If the Lord told us to pray for escape and there are legions of people doing the exact opposite (not praying for escape and actively teaching there is no escape), what will become of them?  It is a question worth pondering.

Peter Asked The Critical Question

John 6:60Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? 61When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said to them, Does this offend you? 62What and if you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 63It is the spirit that vivifies; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life. 64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 65And he said, Therefore said I to you, that no man can come to me, except it were given to him of my Father.

66From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67Then said Jesus to the twelve, Will you also go away? 68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life. 69And we believe and are sure that you are that Christ, the Son of the living God.

There is power in unity of mind, that is to say an undivided mind.  The enemy will make war against us in our mind but here is where Peter's confession comes in.  Where else are we to go?  Who else is offering me answers to my requests?  Who else is offering me miracle power?  Who else has loved me more than I loved myself?  Who else has watched over me, protected me and provided for me for years on end?  There is no one else, there is no where else to turn.  I have one source, one God, one place to receive everything.

Peter said it correctly.  There is no where else to look and no place else to go.  I have all of my eggs in one basket, all of my hope in one God who is the only God.  And He has not disappointed me.

Isaiah 45:5I am the Lord, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not acknowledged me,
6so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.

James 1:6But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

The battle lines have been drawn and the spiritual war around us heats up every day.  It is time to set our minds right.  We have one source for everything we need and that is the only source we need.
United we stand, divided we fall.  The enemy tries to divide and conquer do not allow it.

In the end, we win this war.  We will win it united in heart, mind and spirit.  Glory to God.

A Decision Not To Doubt

Through the Lord's grace this brother has seen many miracles in his life.  In my mind, seeing prayers answered and seeing miracles performed are one and the same thing.  Every answered prayer is in truth a miracle.  It is a transference of  power from the supernatural to the natural.  How do we get prayers answered and how do we see miracles in our own lives?  The Lord has said many things on this, here I will cover one of them:

MT21.21Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. 22If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

There are no secrets, nor any hidden wisdom needed.  We just have to do what the Lord clearly told us to do, thats it.  You do not need any pastor, priest or spiritual guru of any kind what you need is your faith and the Word of the Lord.  That's it.

What did the Lord say above?  If you have faith and do not doubt you can tell whatever mountain you face to go throw itself in the sea and it will be done.  The key is to fave faith and not doubt.  You may ask, "okay brother D that may be easy for you but I may be feeling some doubt."  Here is the key, our "feelings" are worthless and meaningless and completely counterproductive when it comes to faith and answered prayer.

Our Lord did not "feel" like dieing on the cross, but He did it.

Mark 14:36  "Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will."

What does our Lord show us here^^?  All things are possible for our God.  He (our Lord) did not feel like going to the cross (take this cup from me) but that was not the deciding factor.  What was the deciding factor?  Will and decision.  Our Lord Jesus accepted the will of the Father and decided on that will.  What is a decision?  de-cision=to cut off from any other possibility, to decide.

So back to where we started:

MT21.21Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. 22If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

Is our Father's will for us to have faith?  Yes, so I decide I will fill myself with faith.  You will it, you make a decision.

Is our Father's will for us to not doubt?  Yes, so I decide to not doubt.  You will it, you make a decision.

And remember this is war.  The enemy will continually try to come in to kill, steal and destroy your answer to prayer and miracle.  What do we do?

Eph 6:10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.


2 Cor 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Yes, so every time a flaming arrow comes your away trying to kill, steal and destroy your answer and miracle the shield of faith comes up and every argument and pretension that sets itself up against what we are praying for (the knowledge of God-what does the Word say?) is demolished and taken captive to make it obedient.

Our feelings do not extinguish flaming arrows of the enemy, our faith does.  What is the Lord's will?  It is what the Word says it is.  What does the Word say?  What does your faith say?  What does your peace say (your spirits sense of resonance with the Spirit of the Lord) over what you are asking for?

If the Lord has not clearly told me no for what I am asking for then the answer is yes/wait.  I know how the Lord speaks to me, you have to know how the Lord speaks to you.  We are not playing games, if He has said no about something then drop it immediately.  If not, then fight the good fight of faith with all patience and endurance for what you are asking for.  Forget what you feel about it.  What does the Word say?  What does your faith say?  What is the will of the Lord?  What have you decided as an act of your will?  These are the questions that matter.

And when you have received your answer how and when He has decided to answer you, you will have a testimony to encourage others and build your faith for your next miracle.

Glory to God.

grace and peace

Economic Collapse And The Anti-Christ

I just watched a show on Netflix called Hitler and the Nazis.  It was striking just how much went on back then that parallels what is happening right now.  One thing in particular was repeated a number of times in the show:  without the economic collapse of the 1930's, Hitler would not have risen to power.

Then as now, people don't look for a savior until things get bad enough.  It was the economic collapse then that made things bad enough for people to actually embrace Hitler and his message.  Even a casual look at the position we find ourselves in today should be enough to tell us we are about to be in the same boat again.

We probably have anywhere from 1 to 2.5 or so years left before the complete collapse of the global economic system.  We have already seen the economic deterioration begin and it should intensify this year but we probably have a little more time left before it all comes falling down.

Then what?  Then, once again the stage will be set for another Hitler.  In Hitler's day there was a strong wave of anti-semitism combined with a clash of fascism and communism.  Far left vs far right just like we see today. America has been taken over by socialists who would push the country to communist if they could.  Based on the amount of time left before economic collapse occurs it looks like they will fail, however..what will happen when a people sick and tired of having communist (left leaning) ideas shoved down their throat as must of the west has for years now, then has a collapse and someone from the far right rises up to challenge?  You get what you got back in the 1930's and 1940's but with a new face on it.

This new face will likely be the anti-Christ.  The world stage is set and ready for him.  The man who rises up with some charisma to give vent to the suppressed masses who hate Obama and everything he stands for will ride a tidal wave of support that will be unstoppable.  Obama and the left were the preparatory act to set the stage for the man of sin.  How clever. 

If you have netflix you can watch the show here.

We are setup exactly, and I mean exactly like Germany was during the rise of Adolph Hitler.  The only ingredient that is missing is severe economic distress and that most certainly is coming.

The Lord has gone out of His way to warn us of what is coming.  We do not have to rely on decoding anything.  There is no need to decipher or interpret or do anything else but open our eyes.....

Add to these the dead animals by the millions, volcano, earthquake, drought, famine, flood, comets, every kind of upheaval, wars and rumors of wars..I mean, come on.  What else would it take for the Lord to get our attention?  And yet most are still asleep.

This coming economic collapse will almost certainly provide the stage for the rise of the anti-Christ rise on this earth.  They said it many times during the Hitler show, what people would not accept today they will follow whole heartedly given enough economic pain.  The anti-Christ and the mark of the beast will both be products of the economic pain that is just months away from us.

Who needs a 'thus saith the Lord' type prophet today when the Lord is sending signs this potent?  I can tell you that He has my full attention right now and play time is most certainly over.  What excuse will people have when they stand face to face with Him and say "but I didn't know" while He shows them the procession of signs we are seeing all around us today?

I have no condemnation for these people nor do I have a harsh word for any human bring on this earth today.  I also have no heart to debate or argue with people over what the Bible clearly says.  When we read what the Lord said is going to happen, then we clearly see it about to happen how can we not feel weak in the knees?  I would not wish what is coming on anyone, not even Hitler.  It will be that bad and it is coming soon.

Why write this to you?  The enemy of most people today is one word:  complacency.  We should not be complacent.  I love my Father in heaven but I also fear Him.  You bet I do.

Job 28:28 And he said to the human race, "The fear of the Lord--that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding."

With all that said I am trusting the Lord to see me and you through whatever it is we are on this earth to get through.  I do not know how many days are allotted me here and neither do you.  It is important to realize how short time is.  I know there have been many false alarms in the past but it appears the false alarms are over now.  Cows born with 7's on their heads the day of the shemitah year, the blood moons and eclipses all times perfectly with the economic collapse that is well underway prove beyond a shadow of a doubt this time is not just a drill.

The warnings are an act of mercy.  The blatant inscription of 7s on those cows is an act of love.  The Lord has warned this world above and beyond what I thought He would do to wake people up before hell on earth arrived.  I did not expect Him to be so obvious.  This is just another lesson to show the compassion and loving-kindness before judgement and retribution arrives.

We can all choose one or the other, judgement or mercy that is what this is all about.  The floodgates have not opened yet, there is still a little time left to do the things that should be done knowing full well how late the hour is.

I pray for all men and women, that they will come to a saving knowledge of our Lord before it is too late.  When we understand how bad things will get, I cannot imagine anyone with a heart for God not being grieved at even one person having to go through it.  Terror, and horror don't scratch the surface of it.

Lord forgive us all.  I pray for all the brothers and sisters in Christ, my family and myself that our sins are forgiven today and that we may be counted worthy to escape all that is about to happen and stand before you.

grace and peace
