You Can Do Whatever....

Recently I felt like I was being battered by challenges/attacks and I told the Lord "Lord, if these keep coming I'm not sure I can deal with it."  His response was immediate, short and to the point.

He said "you can do whatever I give you the strength to do."

That's it ^^, not very wordy but it hits like a hammer.  He does not give us the strength we need for tomorrows challenges today.  He gives you the strength you need tomorrow, tomorrow.  Most of the time if not all of the time we serve a "just in time" God.  He is in us, around us, always watching, always present and fully capable of providing exactly what we need in the exact millisecond that we need it, in other words, just in time.

Matt 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

We just have to decide to never give up.  If we are going to go down, we will go down swinging.  We fight, till the end.  We must arm ourselves with the attitude of a warrior, a soldier:

2 Tim 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

Make no mistake, we are soldiers and this is a war.  Each day that passes brings this into clearer focus than the day before.  He told us we would have trials, tribulations, troubles in this life and guess what?  He was right.  But He also told us He would never leave us or forsake us:

Heb 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."

This life is full of trouble and heartache, that's just the way it is.  When we can find some happiness here or there, wonderful but we have to understand what we were put here to do.  We are soldiers, this is a war.  We have been and will be tested and it will never stop until we check out of this world.  But the word of encouragement is, if you are not feeling up to the fight today, be patient.  Wait for the strength you need to be given to you, then re-engage.  It is true, we can do whatever He gives us the strength to do.  Glory to God.

may the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be multiplied unto you

The End Time Battle

Many of us can relate to this after a tough 2018:

Ps 61:1Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
2From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
4I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. b
5For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.
7May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.

What we are seeing in the world around us is the end time battle for all the marbles.  This is the time written about by the Spirit of the Lord through His prophets.  There have been many false alarms in the past, however this time stands out among every past season that troubled the saints in a number of different ways.  In recent years we have seen numerous signs in the heavens that confirm the time we are living in.  We have the technology required to implement the mark of the beast unlike any time in history.  We have the earth itself testifying to this time through the mass die off of animal life, radical weather events (once in a lifetime events happening daily).  We also see a separation of the sheep from the goats in the global population as political events reveal the deep seated corruption, which is dismissed by most as the 'price of progress' toward the new world satanic order.

The Lord told us this is not a fight against flesh and blood.  This is a fight against evil in high places, confirmed everywhere we look.  Never before has the wickedness and corruption in our world been exposed like it is being exposed today.  Most of the people around us don't bat an eye at this corruption but thanks be to the Lord our God that there is a remnant that does see it.

In these troubling times it is important for us to remember we were placed here, in this season with divine intent and wisdom.  We also have to remember that many of the servants of the Most High from the past asked "Lord, are you sure I'm the one you want to fight this battle?"

Exodus 3:1Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”
4When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
And Moses said, “Here I am.”
5“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” 6Then he said, “I am the God of your father, a the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
7The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. 8So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. 9And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. 10So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”
11But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”

The Lord God knows what He is doing, you are here for a reason.  Each one of us has work to do, a mission we are on to do the work of the Almighty.  Let us resolve to be strong in the Lord's service.  In the midst of the battles it is difficult to see how things will turn out in the end but be assured of this, we win this fight.

Glory to God

grace and peace

A Word From the Lord on 2019 Part 2

The Lord just provided another one, this is a big one:

**His presence and His power must be more real to us than anything else going on in the world.**

^^This only comes from spending time with Him in His Word.

We need this one to sink in deeply.  The amount of trouble that is stacking up for this world is growing monumentally by the day.  What did the Lord tell us is coming?

Dan 12:1 “At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book.

An unprecedented time of trouble.  A 5 minute scan of the headlines is all you need to know this world is headed into that time.  With this time of trouble, multiple solutions have also been provided.  For us the body of believers, He Himself is our solution:

Please read this again, slowly, line by line and let in marinate in your soul and spirit:

1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will saya to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
9Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refugeb
10no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
11For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14“Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

This right here ^^ is a literal wall of promises made to you and for you (and me).
Make the Lord your refuge and fortress and let His promises do the work they were intended to do.

This was provided by the Spirit of the Lord moments ago and this writer wanted to post it to make sure it was not forgotten.  Glory to God.

grace and peace

A Word From The Lord on 2019

I asked the Lord to give us something, some kind of marching orders for 2019.  He has responded with the following (so far):

1.  Prayer and fasting-prayer and fasting before was a really good idea, from here forward its mandatory.

2.  Do what you were created to do:  This writer is an INFJ (Myers-Briggs).  2% of the population has this personality type.  The Lord has specific work for this writer to do based on how I was created.  You have specific work to do based on how you were created.  The Lord does not create hammers to do the work of a saw.  He does not create screwdrivers to do the work of pliers.  He creates hammers to do a hammers work, figure out what you were created to do and do it.  He is not asking you to do something you were not created to do.  The vast majority of the work we need to do is right in front of our eyes, we just need to wake up and get busy with it.

3.  This:

Phil 4:8Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

The enemy is doing his best to demoralize us through constant negative information bombardment.  There is a reason the Lord told us things like Phil 4:8 and this:

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

There is a literal physical, emotional and spiritual transformation that takes place within us when we do these things we were told to do.  

That's it for now I will add to it as the Lord provides.

grace and peace

2018 The Year of Spiritual Attacks

This writer has never seen a level of attacks like what started in 2018 and has intensified up through this very day.  The attacks are just unbelievable, and instead of easing into the end of the year the attacks have intensified.  We need the Lord more than ever.  Its coming from every direction.

This writer is asking for your prayers in this time of testing.  Please pray for me and my family as we endure battle after battle, day after day.

The purpose in writing to you today is to let you know if you are going through a season of trial, you are not alone.  The answer to this time of trial is prayer, fasting, and faith.  I am praying for you and your families, please pray for me and my family.

Everywhere we look order is being turned into disorder, chaos and strife.  In trying times such as these we are not without resource.  The Lord has given us many promises such as these from this brother's favorite Psalm:

Psalm 34:

4I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.

6This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.

17When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.

19Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

This brother finds himself in a time of troubles.  If you are experiencing the same troubles be encouraged.  The answers to our problems are always the same rain or shine, troubles or no troubles.  We rely on the promises and prayer.

grace and peace

Why It Takes Awhile To Get Your Answers

Did you ever wonder why most of the time when you ask the Lord a question He doesn't just drop the answer into your mind immediately?  I asked the Lord this question a couple weeks ago and here we are a couple weeks later and I just received His answer.

He expects everyone to do their job.  What do we mean by everyone?  That includes the angels.  He expects the angels to do their job.  And what is one of their jobs?

Dan 10:10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. 11And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. 12Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. 13But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. 14Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

They deliver messages.  Ang guess what?  Sometimes they have to fight there way through to get the message through to you and that takes time.  The angels of the Lord are still today in the message delivering business and they are still in the fighting business.

Our God expects the angels to do their jobs, and He expects us to do our jobs.  Each of us has a different purpose and mission in the Kingdom.  Regardless of what our jobs are, we (just like the angels) are expected to fight (with weapons that are not of this world).

2 Cor 10 1Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: 2But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. 3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

2 Tim 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

That means you and me, be a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

This was just a note to make you aware of the answer just delivered to this nobody-slave of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Arrival of Cyrus Spells Doom for Babylon

If we wondered why so many in this world have lost their minds over Trump, look no further.  Trump was put into the white house by God Almighty.  The Almighty sent Trump to accomplish the Divine will.  We know that history repeats itself:

Ecc 1:9What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.

There was an ancient Cyrus, there is now a modern Cyrus (Trump)


There was ancient Babylon, there is modern Babylon (look around you).  Why is modern Babylon so panicked?  Why the demonic hatred of Trump (Cyrus) that goes beyond what most of us have ever seen in our lifetime?  On a deep level that most of them probably do not understand, they know the arrival of Trump signals the end of them.  The arrival of Cyrus starts the clock on the destruction of Babylon.

If you look at the history of ancient Babylon you can see the timeline stretches back thousands of years.  Then what happened?  The next to last major event on the Babylonian timeline was the arrival of Cyrus to conquer (but not destroy....yet) Babylon.  Go to this site and scroll all the way down to 539 BCE.  What you see is Cyrus conquers Babylon.  What is the next event on the timeline?  Babylon is destroyed by Xerxes.  

There is another parallel here we need to pay attention to.  What nation sits atop the list of most hated, villainized nations on earth?  Iran.  Why is that?  Iran is ancient Persia.  Cyrus came from Persia.  Persia was instrumental in the downfall of Babylon.  Who do we see constantly at odds with Iran (Persia) today?  The west:  Babylon.
Ecc 1:9What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.

The clock is ticking on Babylon.  The arrival of Trump (the wrecking ball) signals the beginning of the end of Babylon:

1After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted:
“ ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ a
She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
3For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

Isaiah 13:17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes (Persia-Iran) against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.
18Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.
19And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
Trump is not the end of Babylon, but he is the beginning 
of the end of Babylon.

The people in and of this world do not completely understand where their deep hatred of Trump comes from but they feel it in their bones.  Trump is the beginning of the end of them and their anti-Christ globalist communist system that will fall as surely as the sun sets each and every day.

Be encouraged, mighty is the Lord God who judges Babylon and will make an end of all its wickedness and perversion.
