Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope this day finds you well and at peace.  Today is one of the holiest days in this brother's eyes.  Today we give thanks to God Almighty for the blessings in our lives.  Today we do what we should do every day according to the Word:

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. ...
always giving thanks to God the Father for everything,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. ... 

Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

This brother has much to be thankful for.  A short prayer to the Lord below, enjoy your Thanksgiving!

"Thank you Lord for the many blessings you have placed in our lives, upon our families and upon all the brothers and sisters.  Please forgive us our sins today and lead us according to your will.  Lead us now Lord, guide us now.  As we give you thanks we ask you to remember that we are weak and needy.  We need you every moment of every day.  Please continue to provide for us as you always have, thank you Lord!  All glory and honor and power and wealth and worship be yours forever and ever! AMEN"

grace and peace

Answer To Prayer

When we approach the Lord to ask for something in prayer, we have to bring Him something to work with.  Two of these somethings are 1. our faith and 2. His Word.  What is your proof brother D?  What do you mean we have to bring Him something to work with?

Proof 1-All the prayers that seemingly do not get answered.  We live in a day and age filled with grace preachers.  I want to be clear that I thank the Lord for His grace, however the preachers who preach a one dimensional God are in serious error.  What do I mean?  Todays preachers leave out the importance of FAITH.  Example?  We hear all the time that we are "saved by grace."  But is that what the Bible says?  A partial truth is no truth at all.  The Word of God says:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God

People are keen on grace and don't mention faith at all to their shame and loss.  These wolves go so far as to say you can be saved without faith!  Forget my opinion, what does God say! It is by grace you have been saved, through faith.  I see grace AND faith in that statement, they leave one or the other out at their peril.

Proof 2-The centurion brought his faith and received an answer:

The Faith of the Centurion
5When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6“Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”
7Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”
8The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13Then 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 do we see here?^^  Our Lord is full of grace and love and mercy, He is willing to do this thing but what does He require of the centurion?  Faith.

If that is not a good enough example, lets try this one:

Mark 6:4But Jesus, said to them, A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands on a few sick folk, and healed them. 6And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

I thank God for His grace and I understand the importance of FAITH.  Do a keyword search for faith in the Bible and see for yourself the importance our Lord puts on it.  Why does this brother write to you today?  To encourage you to do those things that please our Lord and help you at the same time.  I can think of no more encouraging idea or fact than that of answered prayer.  The Lord wants our attention on Him, He wants our faith in Him.

Ultimately all this drama on earth that we call life is about our relationship with Him.  Thats it.  All this other filler that people spend their time on is close to worthless.  If we ask ourselves how much eternal value each activity in our day has we will be shocked at the answer.  This brother is not above anyone else in this area but I think about it.  How much of my daily activity is eternally worthless?  Somethings have to be done regardless (like our work) but the point is to bring some of our day, our thinking and our energy to focus on what is eternally worthwhile.  Prayer, faith and generally attention to the things that please the Lord are worthwhile in an eternal sense.

While we live in this world we will need prayers answered, daily.  This brother does not understand how some people can make it through a single day without the Lord.  Why?  This brother is completely dependent.  I know where my daily bread, and the clothes on my back and the roof over my head comes from...Him.

I write to you to encourage you to bring our Lord your faith and His Word as you ask for the things you need.  When your prayers are answered, you will be overjoyed and you will be an encouragement to others.  Yes, answers may take time but you will get your answer.  How can I be sure of this?

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.

What does the Lord say here ^^?  It WILL be given to you, you WILL find, the door WILL be opened to you.  If you are wondering what part of the Word to take to the Lord along with your faith to get the answers you need, I would recommend taking Matt 7:7 to the throne with you to petition the Lord.

Perhaps your prayer will sound something like "Lord, I bring you my faith and your Word as I believe you for x,y,z.....Lord you said if I ask it will be given, if I seek I will find, if I knock the door will be opened.  You watch over your Word to do it.

Jer 1:12 And Jehovah saith unto me, 'Thou hast well seen: for I am watching over My word to do it.'

So Lord let this thing be done in my life.  If I ask amiss then please guide me in my spirit that I might pray according to your will and receive the answers that I need today.  Thank you Lord for your great goodness to me and my family and all the brothers.  All glory and honor and power be yours forever and ever.  Amen."

There is nothing special about my words, but this is an example.  I pray that your prayers are answered and your faith will be greatly encouraged.  I remember you in my prayers, please remember me and my family that we may all receive grace in our time of need.

grace and peace

The Days Ahead

The days ahead look dim for this world.  We as believers do not know how far into the downward spiral the Lord will leave us here.  We know there is an escape from all promised in Luke 21:36, but we do not know when that escape will occur.  So what?

The Lord has given us His great and precious promises to sustain us while we are here.  Promises like what?  Like 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.

^^ This tells us we spend our days under the Lord's care.  Thanks be to God.  It also tells us in times of disaster we will not wither.  Take a look at the news.  M 7 plus earthquakes, volcanoes, famines, droughts and floods are a daily occurrence.  Disaster seems to be lurking everywhere, but we have a promise.  Should we fear disaster or famine in the land?  No, we have promises.  We will live or die on the promises.  The Word of God is our life, literally.

Do not fear the bad news all around us or the disasters that are coming upon the earth, we have promises.  The Lord has kept His Word to this nobody all the days of his short life.  If He did it for me He will do it for you.  We serve a God who answers prayers and watches over His promises to fulfill them.  Thanks be to God.

Walking Outside The Boat

Matt 14:22Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29“Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, why did you doubt?”
32And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

Many of us, if not all of us are asking the Lord for things on a daily basis.  Some of us need miracles today but the wind has kicked up all around us.  The temptation is to take our eyes off of Jesus and look at the storm but what happens when we take our eyes off of Jesus?  We no longer walk on the water (our miracle sinks).  The fix is to not let this happen for more than a few seconds.  We decide over and over again "no, Im not going to look at the storm around me, I am going to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus."  Its a decision we make over and over again, its a battle we fight that does not end until our miracle or prayer has been answered.

When we decide to live by faith and not by sight, we step outside the boat with Jesus.  This is what we should do.  The Lord did not put this event into the Bible just so we could read an interesting story.  He put it in there so we can learn from it and apply the lessons learned.  This brother is here to testify to you that every Word written in the Bible is true and this miracle event has practical applicability to you and your life right now today.

Nobody ever said walking outside the boat in the midst of a storm would be easy, the Lord did say it is possible.  This brother can tell you that walking outside the boat is not just for 'special' people either. The Lord has taken this nobody, good for nothing, weak and outcast man and proven to him that the Word can be trusted.  What has been done for this nobody will certainly be done for a somebody like you.  What has been done for me has not been done for me alone.  What has been written, and what has been proven out in this nobody's life has been done for you, right now, today that you may be encouraged to look to your Creator for the answers you need.

If you are in Christ, and you do not give up but hold onto your faith till death do you part, you will get the answer you need.  Till death do us part is an attitude of absolute "I'm not turning back, I am in this fight to the end even if it kills me, so be it I will NOT give up, I WILL NOT surrender my faith, I will NOT turn my back on the only answer that is an answer for the problems I be it,  amen.  << This is the kind of thinking this brother had often during miracle believing times in his life.  Most miracles and or big answers to prayer took time which means patience, and suffering through the wait.

I would like to encourage you today to accept your answer to prayer as a foregone coclusion, and start thanking the Lord for it today.  Complaining and whining is not an option, the Lord does not tolerate whining well.  There is a fine line between complaining and petitioning but I dont want to get into that now.  The point is we need to give thanks and not complain.  Many times when you give thanks your feelings are betraying you, your guts are turning inside out at the thought of what might happen if the Lord does not come through for you, but you GIVE THANKS ANYWAY!!!!

Brothers and sisters, if we would learn to do this one thing right I am convinced we could turn the world upside down.  This is a fundamental truth, what were we created to do?  Why are we here?  Does it get any more basic?  We were created for His glory

Isa 43:7everyone who is called by my name,
whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed and made.”

Be encouraged today and give thanks to our Lord.  

... And my God will supply every need of yours according
to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus

Matt 7:7“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Notice in Matt 7 above, the Lord tells you what He will do but He does not tell you when..

In this brothers experience, delayed answers, making us wait tests our faith.  The test is the point.  We were told we would be tested and all of us I would say can say Amen, I've been tested by time.  He answers, yes He does but He does make us wait.  This brother has had to wait for years sometimes...sometimes it was months that felt like years BUT the Lord answered.  Our faith must be tested

... For he has knowledge of the way I take; after I have
been tested I will come out like gold. 

Here in the U.S. we are coming up on Thanksgiving day.  In this brothers mind it is one of the the most holy days of the year.  Be encouraged today, stay in the fight, set your mind and heart to scrap this out to the death do us part.  I have told myself even if it kills me I am not giving up on the answer I seek from the Lord.  I believe it takes that kind of attitude to get our answer.  This brother is a nobody who has experienced miracles, you are a somebody who these miracles were meant for.  Each part of the body serves all the other parts, none of us stands alone we are all part of the same organic living body.  Glory to God.

I pray for your answers and your miracles today.  We will get our answers if we step outside the boat with Jesus and keep our eyes on Him.  Be encouraged, your answer is coming.

grace and peace

Holding Pattern

For weeks now there have been major earthquakes, major volcano eruptions, even a new island forming in the sea off of Japan and the Lord has not inspired me to touch any of it.  How strange.  For years I have sensed His guidance to jump on these things and post about the events around us and tie them into what He said would happen.  What about now?  Now what?

I am in a holding pattern.  Its amazing, we have ISON roaring in next week and blood moons coming up at the beginning of 2014 and what I sense is to stop, wait, and listen.  You have probably noticed a slowdown in number of posts here.  The Lord has me in a holding pattern.  There is no inspiration whatsoever to write about the major signs around us.  It just turned off like a light switch.

There is a season for everything (Ecclesiastes).  Now is the season to wait on the Lord and seek His face for guidance.  I do not write here for myself, I write for Him.  If I am not hearing or sensing His direction for the writing, the writing does not happen.

In the absence of posts here, know that this brother is seeking the Lord's face for His will and direction.  The writing here is done at the Lord's pleasure.  If it is not inspired by Him and for Him this brother wishes to not write another word.

I expect this is a slowdown and not a stop.

Please pray with me and expect real results.  Please pray with all the faith you have that this brother might communicate the mind of the Lord on these pages through the hands of this imperfect nobody that is brother D.

Times like this require me to spend more time in the Word of God.  The answer for all of us (for any problem) is always found in the Word of God which is the Son of God, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Inspiration to write will be found there soon, I am sure of it.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.  May His face shine upon you and may He grant you peace.  AMEN.

The Judgement of America

Jer 4:18“Your own conduct and actions
have brought this on you.
This is your punishment.
How bitter it is!
How it pierces to the heart!”
19Oh, my anguish, my anguish!
I writhe in pain.
Oh, the agony of my heart!
My heart pounds within me,
I cannot keep silent.
For I have heard the sound of the trumpet;
I have heard the battle cry.
20Disaster follows disaster;
the whole land lies in ruins.
In an instant my tents are destroyed,
my shelter in a moment.
21How long must I see the battle standard
and hear the sound of the trumpet?
22“My people are fools;
they do not know me.
They are senseless children;
they have no understanding.
They are skilled in doing evil;
they know not how to do good.”

I was watching a documentary about the downfall of America's economy and I thought to myself there is no way to get out of the tailspin we are in now.  How does one bring back jobs that have been shipped overseas when people elsewhere live on a dollar or less per day and the cost of living here is astronomical?  There is no way.  America, and its people have been given an impossible to solve economic problem, which means they have a life and living problem.  Who laid this problem at our doorstep?  The Lord did.

When a country who used to be God fearing, kicks the Lord out of their schools, their courts, their government buildings and out of everywhere else they can possible erase Him, there is a price to pay for it.  The government takes the action but the people are the ones who allow it.  It is the people, you and me who have sinned and turned our backs on the Lord and have brought this thing on ourselves.  It is the common man.  America has the leader she deserves, a destroyer, Barack Hussein Obama.  I does not matter who people vote for, what matters is who the Lord decides a country deserves and truly America deserves Obama.

How can you say that brother D?  I can say that because light drives out darkness, everytime without exception.  Turn on a light in a room and the darkness flees, period.   And darkness fills America in greater measure each and every day.  How can that be with church building son every corner of every street in America?  The simple and unequivocal answer is the churches are not filled with light but darkness.  That means the people who fill those church buildings have no light in them.

If a nation is filled with righteous God fearing people, the Lord would give them righteous God fearing leaders.  But America is filled with people who have a form of godliness but deny its power.  People 'go to church' by the dozen but they are not the church.  The church is the organic living, Spirit filled body of believers, not some man made building and its nicolaitan clergy.

This brother has been reading the book of Jeremiah, and he has been impressed with the parallels between Israel and America.  Every place you read Israel or Jerusalem in Jerermiah you can insert America.  Is God an impartial judge or not?  If a nation that once called on God now rejects Him en masse, what will be the price for that?  If the Lord harshly punished Israel repeatedly for her backsliding and only a remnant survived, what will become of America?  Will her sins and wickedness and backsliding go unpunished?

America has been given a poison pill to swallow.  Look at her cities, look at Detroit as an example.  The once great industrial city that symbolized American power now lies in ruins.  Cities across the country are declaring bankruptcy and the politicians in Washington cut deals with foreign banks to plunder the treasury.  Where have Trillions with a capital T gone?  Who do we own Trillions to?  You won't ever get an answer to that but we owe it to someone who has plundered us.  Why have we been plundered?  Why are cities in ruin?  Why can't people find work?  The wicked and dreadful sin of turning our back on the Creator.  That's it.  We do not acknowledge Him and we do not thank Him.  We do not do what He commands because we do not fear Him.  We do not do what He commands therefore we do not love Him.

The sins of America rise into the heavens and there is no repentance.  Where is the sackcloth and ashes?  Where is the weeping and heartbreak over the condition of America?  The people are so deluded they seek solutions from government and not from the source of the problems: our God.  Our God laid this yoke on Americaa, not the politicians.  Our God as cursed and declared disaster on America, not the politicians.  The more these people call upon the politicians to fix things, the deeper down the hole of destruction America will go.  One day when people see their cities in ruins and they are laying half naked in the dirt with no food, no shelter, no clothes, no nothing, maybe then they will realize how foolish they have been.

One way to look at insanity is to do the same things over and over again and expect a different result every time.  That is what Americans are, insane.  Why?  The "Christians?" tell you to 'get involved' and 'go out and vote' to 'make a difference' and year after year, politician after politician things get worse.  Democrat or Republican it does not matter.  How foolish.  The source of disaster and deliverance is the Lord our God, Creator of eternity.

What is the solution?  Repentance en masse, in sackcloth and ashes.  Mass confession of sin and petitions for forgiveness.  If we would seek our God in humility and fear and repentance, perhaps the Lord would relent and America would be healed.  What do you think the chances are of even a small percentage of Americans repenting in fear and humility?

There are a few who still fear God, scattered across the world in every nation.  The problem is they are few and they are scattered.  Dont take my word for it, test it for yourself.  Light drives out darkness right?  Where do you see darkness being driven out?

The Lord will take care of His remnant, the few.  He always has.  This has been written to explain why things are the way they are and why any hope of turning this country or the world around at this point is a dim hope.  The way the world will be turned around now is through severe chastisement and punishment through seals, vials and trumpets (Revelation).  Our Lord's kingdom will come and His will be done here on earth.  The time of man doing his thing is coming to a close.  What a mess he has made of things.

Thanksgiving Day Comet

Comet ISON will be at its closest to the sun on thanksgiving day.  We have no idea what if anything will happen.  Chances are that ISON is doing what it needs to do just by appearing in the heavens.  It is a sign and a warning to us all.  The lunar tetrad is coming up as are the solar eclipses.  These sure signs in the heavens point to significant events ahead of us.

Why is the Lord pointing to Passover and Sukkot with these signs?  What is the significance?  Passover did not end well for the enemies of God.  Go re-read what the Lord did to the Egyptians.  Are we about to see a modern day repeat?  If we read through the pages of Revelation it would appear so.

Look at this passage:

Revelation 9:4 
... They were told not to damage the grass of the earth, or any green plant or tree,
but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their forehead.

What is happening here?^^  The people who are sealed are "passed over" while those who are not are harmed.  This is just one example of what is coming.  The escape from all promised in Luke 21:36 is another form of being "passed over."  Noah and Lot were passed over as well in their day and it will be just like that on the day the Son of Man is revealed

26“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28“It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30“It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.

This Thanksgiving let us take time to remember all that the Lord has done for us.  In the mind of this writer, Thanksgiving is one of the most holy days of the year.  It is a day that embodies what we should be doing each and every day of the year.  Let us remember our faithful Creator who is forever praised and give Him thanks for what He has done and what He is going to do.

All glory and honor and power and might and splendor and all the worship and riches be unto our God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ forever and ever AMEN.

Asteroid With 6 tails found

link here.

Glory to God.  Why?  He is making mankind look clueless.  Everything they think they know is wrong and is being proven wrong by the Almighty.  The 'experts' have been telling us all we need to know about comets and asteroids with great certainty, and now a space rock shows up that looks like an asteroid and comet combined except with 6 tails.

Will you ever hear NASA or any of the other 'experts' telling us they are goint to scrap their fantasy 'science' and go back to the drawing boards to figure out what is going on?  No way.  Mankind is too arrogant.  The people would rather be lied to than hear "we don't know" from their 'experts.'

I write this to you today to Glorify God Almighty.  I would call a 6 tailed space rock that is a cross between an asteroid and a comet a sign in the heavens.  As is comet ISON, the coming lunar tetrad and dual solar eclipses over 2014-2015.  Its almost as if "someone" in the heavens is trying to get our attention....ya think?

The Lord will get our attention one way or another.  People cannot dig a hole deep enough to bury their head in to ignore Him anymore.  Whether its the record setting strongest typhoon in recorded history or space rocks with 6 tails, or record volcano eruptions or mega earthquakes, He will get our attention.
The Lord will be glorified and mankind will be humbled.  Glory to God!

The person who humbles him or herself now does not require humbling from the Lord.

Mt 23:12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Water Turned To Blood In Holland

Photo by Mark Ruder^^

link here.

Notice, nobody knows why this is happening.  What is happening?  A foreshadowing of what is to come.  When the main event happens it will be in the midst of hellish death and destruction.  For now, it is during days of relative normalcy.  Why?  Infinite mercy and grace.  The advance warning fireballs and earthquakes are other foreshadowing events that pre-signal what is to come.

Rev 16:3The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.
4The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
“You are just in these judgments, O Holy One,
you who are and who were;
6for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets,
and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.”

How many people will 'get it' before all hell breaks loose?  How many people will turn and repent of their ways before getting kicked in the teeth by the main event judgements/wrath?  I don't know but my guess is, few will give thought to their ways.  Why repent when a person does not believe they are doing anything wrong?  This world teaches people to "do what thou wilt" and that is the whole extent of the law (satanism).  They don't even blush at their sin because they do not see their actions as sinful.

Am I their judge?  No, but there is One who judges all things and it appears His wrath is on the way.
Why write this?  The work the Lord has given this writer is to point to and draw attention toward what the Lord is already doing or has already done.  There is nothing new under the sun.  There is no new message here.  Look and see what the Lord is doing and what He plans to do!  Tell those with ears to hear to turn back to their Creator today because time is in short supply.

The Next 90 Days

Have extra food, water, toilet paper, candles/oil lamps etc, gasoline/power source over the next 3 months.  The powers that be have warned everyone that they expect or reasonably suppose there might be a widespread power outage event in the near future.  How have we been warned?

1. Sec Napolitano's cyber attack/unprecedented natural disaster statement
2.  Comet ISON is coming in and the sun is going nuts shooting mutliple X-class flares directly at it, what happens when the comet gets to our side of the sun and the sun fires an X-class directly at us?  Could it happen? Yep.
3.  GRIDEX II exercise this month simulating a knockout blow to the nations power grid
4.  American Blackout-natgeo special aired this week
5.  UK Blackout special aired recently as well, both based on cyber attacks knocking out the power grid.

If nothing happens, no need to worry but what if the grid goes down?

I count on the Lord for my provision and protection every day.  The Lord expects things of me.  If He points my attention to something and gives me advance warning of things that I can do little things to prepare for do you think He expects me to do those little things?  I do.  The Lord does all the heavy lifting in my life, but He does expect me to do the little that I can do to help myself.

Comet ISON is a warning of what is coming next year.  Next year the Lord's signs will be on display in the heavens, a lunar tetrad spanning two years and two solar eclipses.  The chances of the tetrads landing on 4 consecutive feast days is astronomical.  The Lord is sending a message to all of us.

What write and warn of these things?  Its all about getting our attention on the Lord, period.  Everything written on this blog is written to direct your attention to the Lord.  The Lord will get our attention, yours and mine both one way or another.  The rest of the world will have their attention grabbed as well, one way or another.  He will get their attention the hard way and they will curse Him for it:

Rev 6:15Then 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?”

Rev 16 God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds,a fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.

Rev 9:17The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. 18A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths. 19The power of the horses was in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails were like snakes, having heads with which they inflict injury.
20The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. 21Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.

The Lord is going to pound this earth.  The earth will be laid waste because of the sins of man and their refusal to acknowledge Him who created all things.  They do not give Him thanks, they do not praise Him, they do not acknowledge Him at all.  He was patiently waited and they take His patience for weakness and ignorance instead of kindness, grace and mercy.  The days of grace and mercy are coming to an end.  Let us give our thanks, praise and attention to the Lord while some semblance of normalcy remains.  Let us acknowledge Him now without the need of harsh measures to get our attention.

Be watching and ready over the next 90 days.  I have no idea if anything will happen and I am not saying that anything will but the government is warning us and fire is falling from the skies every night. The warnings are all around us.

grace and peace
