Watch and Pray

Watch! Is what the Lord has been saying to me for some time now. Watching is at the heart of what makes the rapture debate more of an issue than some would think. Satanic misdirections and lies are crafty. Nobody accused the devil of being dumb, he is far from it. It is my understanding that those who refuse to watch today and everyday for the Lord's return have 'taken the bait' in Satan's trap. These people refuse to watch for the Lord because their satanic doctrine tells them that there are many things that must happen before the Lord can or will come back for us and take us home. They are severely mistaken.....

What is it that the Lord has given me this week to give to you? We are to watch, continually, for the Lord, and how we watch (the point of emphasis in this writing today) follows....consider:

Matthew 26:41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into ...
"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.

Mark 14:38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into ...
Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.

Luke 21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able ...
Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

Mark 13:33 Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time ...
... Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

1 Peter 4:7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear ...
... Therefore, practice self-control, and keep your minds clear so that you can pray. ...the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer

There are many more scriptures that can be cited to make this point. Watching is something we do by/through/with prayer....We watch through continuous prayer. Anyone who has been reading this blog for anytime knows that the Lord has put me on an indefinite "news fast." That means, apart from what I need to do for work, the "news" is more or less off limits for me. That includes all forms of "alternative news" as well. Why would the Lord tell me to completely turn my back on this world and its "news" to face Him instead? Do you really need me to answer that?

We are to be watching, and the way we watch is to be in continual prayer. Over and over again the Lord Himself makes the point by joining "watch" and "pray" at the hip throughout the New Testament. Should this be new news to us? Not really:

1 Thess 5:17 pray without ceasing, We are to pray without ceasing which would me we are "watching" without ceasing through prayer...We find our Lord, what He is doing and saying in His Word and through prayer. That should not be anything new to any of us, but this serves as a reminder of what we should already be doing...

We have been told to pray without ceasing. To pray without ceasing is to have the Lord and his laws always before us. How can we willfully sin against the Lord while we have Him front and center in our hearts and minds? If we keep the Lord and by extension, His Word before us, in our hearts and minds continually, then we will have completed some of what is required of us when the Lord told us to watch, over and over again. The other part of watching appears to be an expectation on our part that the Lord indeed will come back for us just exactly as He said He would....

Mark 13:35 "Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the ...
... Watch therefore: for ye know not when the lord of the house cometh, whetherat even, or at midnight, or at cockcrowing, or in the morning

Matthew 25:13 "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the ...
... Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. ... Watch therefore, forye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Luke 21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able ...
... Watch therefore, praying at every season, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things which are about to come to pass, and to stand before the

We are told to watch specifically for the "lord of the house" which we know for a fact is the Lord Jesus. We are told to watch for the Lord our Saviour, not the anti-christ, not the tribulation, not the abomination of desolation, but for the Lord Jesus.

There are some believers who will be on the earth to look for such things as the anti-christ and the abomination that causes desolation, but we are told to watch for the Lord Jesus. According to the Lord's own Word, those who are found ready and watching at the time the Lord comes will be rewarded (Matt 25). Those who are not watching and ready will have the "door" (rev 4, Matt 25) slammed in their face with the admonishment "I never knew you."

We are to watch....always. The Lord never gave us "days off" from watching so we are to do it NOW. If men tell you that the Lord cannot come for us today or tomorrow because a,b,c,x,y,z has to happen first, you can confidently and comfortably call them liars. The satanic lie, which is always subtle and always cunning and crafty always leads to death. The satanic lie to the churches today is that there is no need to watch right now. The satanic lie is all kinds of other things must happen before the Lord will come back for us to take us to where He is. The satanic lie comes to us in the form of other doctrines that are different from the ones preached to us directly in the Word of God.

If the Lord comes back 20 years from now, but I am found watching that day and every day from today until that day, how can I suffer loss on that day? If the Lord comes back today or tomorrow for us, and many are found not watching, because of the satanic lie that they chose to believe, then they could be found not watching exactly as the Lord himself warned us, and do you think they will suffer loss? I don't even want to speculate on it.

There have been two themes that the Lord has had on my mind constantly over the past weeks. 1. Be watching....always, and 2. America is an exact match for the modern day Babylon that is judged very severely in the last days.

I needed to post this today because the Lord reminded me that He had given this to me to write, and it has been days since it was given so what was I waiting for? Well...task completed, here it is Lord :-)

grace and peace

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Repealed

Recently a long standing policy in the American armed forces banning homosexuals from "coming out" was repealed. This "historic vote" as it was called in many media outlets was universally praised as "progress" for America. America and americans better think again. America has a sin problem. Each and every day in America, sin and wickedness takes a step forward and godliness and righteousness is pushed backwards. Does America expect to escape the wrath and judgement that is coming while she stands with a brazen face shaking her fist at the Lord? This country is marked for destruction...

Does America think that somehow the laws of gravity and physics no longer apply to her? Does America think that somehow because she has lived in prosperity for so long that the warnings spelled out in the Word of God no longer apply to her? Read the Word of the Lord:

Jeremiah 18 :5Then the word of the Lord came to me: 6“O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel. 7If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, 8and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. 9And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, 10and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.
11“Now therefore say to the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘This is what the Lord says: Look! I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So turn from your evil ways, each one of you, and reform your ways and your actions.’ 12But they will reply, ‘It’s no use. We will continue with our own plans; each of us will follow the stubbornness of his evil heart.’”

The warnings issued to our older brother Israel are just as applicable to us now as they were to Israel then. America heaps sin upon sin and where is the outcry? Where are all of today's "godly men" (so called pastors=nicolaitans) while darkness steadily makes progress across America today and light cannot find a place in the land? All of America's politicians are rotten to the core. Democrat and Republican are two sides of the same evil coin, they are all rotten and the stench of them rises up to the heavens. Before the people of America get to smug and say to themselves "but I didn't vote for this or that politician" just be aware that all of the rotten greedy filthy politicians in the land are a direct result of the rottenness, greeed and filth of the people.... America has the politicians it deserves because it is rotten from the ground up.

Is our situation in America hopeless? Outward appearance would suggest that the answer is yes, but the Word of God tells us that even when disaster has been decreed for a nation, if that nation will turn and repent of its sins, then the Lord will relent. The key word here is IF that nation will repent. Will America repent of her many sins? That might be a problem when Americans don't think they have a sin problem. So many think they are "good people," therefore they have no need to repent. When Jesus himself asked why someone called him "good" Americans should rethink their position...

Mark 10:17As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
18Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.

Where are the men who are calling for repenatance today? Where are the men who are confessing their sins, the sins of their families and communities before the Lord and asking for forgiveness for this nation of ours whose sins fill heaven with the stench of death? Why would Americans repent when they do not believe they have done anything wrong? America sits like a queen believing herself to be a spotless bride when in truth she has become the queen of prostitutes. Don't take my word for it, open your eyes!

When wickedness walks openly among a people, isn't that their shame and not their credit? Isn't repealing the "don't ask don't tell" policy allowing wickedness to walk openly among us? When a nation calls what is good evil, and what is evil good they have a problem. America has a problem, it's a sin problem. There are "churches" on every street corner yet darkness makes steady progress across the land, how can that be unless the so called "light" within those churches is really darkness? Light drives out darkness every time, no if a church claims that it is a light to the world, yet it does not drive out darkness, then that church is a fraud.

This writing today does not purpose to target any one sin particularly (in this case homosexuality). The target for todays writing is sin in general in America. Go read the entire book of Isaiah, read the book of Jeremiah and see the many chastisements of the nation of Israel. As I read through those books, the Spirit of the Lord within me makes comment after comment relating the sins of Israel with the sins of America. If the Lord condemned the sin then, He condemns the same sin now. Before anyone says "come on man, Isaiah and Jeremiah? That's old news!" I would point you toward the Lord's message to the churches in Revelation 2-3. To each of the churches (5 out of 7 of them), the message was the same....REPENT. That was the message to Israel then, and that is the message to the churches today.

On a broader note, this is another example of how Ameirca is modern day Babylon. America is the queen of the nations of the world. When America speaks, the rest of the world ripples with her words. Was the Lord ignorant of this end time nation that shakes the world (America) when He inspired the words in the Bible? Or did He write to us specifically about this nation? The Lord foresaw America in the course of history and He has written to us about this nation and He calls her Babylon. There are judgements coming on Babylon but neither she nor her people see them coming.

This writer believes that it is the small amount of light and salt that remains in Babylon that prevents her total destruction. Salt preserves, but remove the salt and the rot destroys everything. There is coming a day when the salt and light will be removed. Babylon is fallen, fallen. The nature of Babylon is fallen, she has fallen from grace.

Jer 16:8“And do not enter a house where there is feasting and sit down to eat and drink. 9For this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Before your eyes and in your days I will bring an end to the sounds of joy and gladness and to the voices of bride and bridegroom in this place.
10When you tell these people all this and they ask you, ‘Why has the Lord decreed such a great disaster against us? What wrong have we done? What sin have we committed against the Lord our God?’ 11then say to them, ‘It is because your fathers forsook me,’ declares the Lord, ‘and followed other gods and served and worshiped them. They forsook me and did not keep my law. 12But you have behaved more wickedly than your fathers. See how each of you is following the stubbornness of his evil heart instead of obeying me. 13So I will throw you out of this land into a land neither you nor your fathers have known, and there you will serve other gods day and night, for I will show you no favor.’

There is a generation of people that has arisen in America that behaves more wickedly than their fathers. Each of them follows the stubbornness of his evil heart istead of obeying the Lord. The leaders in America reflect the wickedness of the people of America. Each year now, people openly talk about having to select the lesser of the evils when they cast their vote, but they never stop to look at themselves and ask why this is? Could I have anything to do with the wickedness that walks openly among us?

These things are written to you today as a call to repentance. We are told to have nothing to do with wicked people, we are to be "set apart." In fact, thats what "church" means. Ek-klesia in the greek means "set apart from the people." What do I hear the Lord saying today? Repent. Each of us should confess our sins, the sins of our families and our nation before the Lord and we are to ask for forgiveness. This writer is thankfull for all the grace, peace and abundance we have enjoyed here in America up through this very day, but I see these days coming to an end due to our severe wickedness and apostasy in turning away from the living God. We must obey, we must submit, or we will be broken and cast away into the refuse heap of history.

The wise among us will heed the lessons of the past. We will internalize the lessons taught to us in the Word of God and use all of our strength to do things that please our Lord. Come out from among them says the Lord...

2 Corinthians 6:17 "Therefore come out from them and be separate ...
... Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

Numbers 16:21 "Separate yourselves from this assembly so I can put ...
... Come out from among this people, so that I may send sudden destruction on them.

As it was in the days of Noah and Lot, so shall it be when the Son of Man comes. When the righteous come out from among them, then sudden destruction will fall and none of them will see it coming. Noah went into the ark and the rain began to fall, Lot and his family left Sodom and fire and brimstone torched the cities. A day like this is coming again, so let us be found worthy of the escape that is laid before us (Luke 21:36). Let us choose things that please the Lord. grace and peace

32“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.

35“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”

It is days like today that men fail to watch and instead their hearts are weighed down by the anxieties of life. We have been commanded to watch. If you've been reading the contents of this blog for any time, you remember the attention that has been paid to "doors." The Lord is piecing together a puzzle for us and He hides the pieces in plain sight. Notice what it says in verse 34 above:

34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.

We know that there are no idle words in the bible. Each word was used for a purpose to communicate a specific message. The words our Lord uses also piece together the mysteries of the bible for us. In this case, the word "door" is used in conjuction with the word "watch." Where else have we seen these words used?

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

Can people "escape" through doors? Gee, I wonder how Noah escaped all of the flood in his day? Oh yea, he went through the "door" of the ark and the Lord shut him in:

The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD shut him in.

Noah? Escape? Doors? Yep...

Luke 17:26 "Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be ...
"Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also willit be in the days of the Son of Man.

Matthew 24:37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the ...
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

The Bible tells us to be always on the watch....always...I am amazed at how many "christians" today cannot grasp the meaning of a simple word. What does "always" mean? If these people cannot figure out what one word means, how will they find the wisdom to determine what a whole sentence means? I'm not trying to be overly sarcastic here but really, if the Lord said we must watch always, and people calling themselves christians refuse to watch always, what does that mean? It means those christians are going to find that they have major, major problems with consequences they cannot begin to fathom today. They refuse to take the Word at face value, therefore they refuse to obey, and why? They have chosen doctrines taught by men over the plain meaning of scripture. In this case, one word is more than these people can handle...they refuse to accept the plain meaning of the word "always."

We are to be watching always, because there is a door that we are sitting by that is going to be opened by our Lord Jesus... 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.

He tells the one at the door to keep watch. Where else do we see this "door?"

Rev 3:8I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.

The Lord has placed before this church an "open door."

Again here we see the same thing, an open door...

Matt 25:10“But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
11“Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’
12“But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’
13Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

The virgins who were ready "went in with him" through the open door that is later shut for the foolish virgins, and there it is again, we are warned to "keep watch" together with an open door that is later closed, just as it was in the days of Noah....

Yes, I know the satanic psycopaths like to muddy the water and tell us that what we read here is not until some future time far far away. If it was some future time far far away, the Lord would not have to given us an unconditional command...that is, there is no precondition that must occur before we are to watch, we are simply told to "keep watch." That means NOW.

The foolish virgins will tell you not to bother watching now. They will write you a 200 page e-book explaining to you why you do not need to watch now. That's always the way they work. Instead of accepting the plain truth of scripture as a little child would accept it, they get "creative" with the Word and muddy the water until everything is so murky that you couldn't see your hand in front of your face with an WW2 anti-aircraft searchlight focused on it.

If we do not accept the truths in the bible like little children, we will never enter the kingdom of heaven. If you need to write an essay to explain away a truth like what the word "always" means, then you have bigger problems than I could ever fix. We have been called to a simple faith in Jesus Christ. We have been called to enter the kingdom like little children:

Matthew 18:3 And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

There are way too many people calling themselves christians today are way way too "grown up" to make it into the kingdom of heaven. They have degrees, and big buildings and large social circles, and worldly respect and egos to match it all. They have these things because they refuse to love the truth and so be saved. If, one day they ever embraced the truth, their degrees would be revoked, their big buildings would empty, their social circles would abandon them, their worldly respect would be dashed and their egos would be devastated.

Our Lord came to this world preaching the truth and they crucified Him for it. Think mankind has changed? Think again. The best way to lose all your friends, all your popularity, and all your worldly status is to preach the truth. Don't take my word for it, read your bibles. What happened to the prophets? What happened to the apostles? What happened to our Lord? Get the picture?

We have been commanded to watch...always. This brother is reminding you again today (because I have been reminded) to do what our Lord told us to do: WATCH. We must watch with patience. Many will be those who fall along the path because the Lord did not return soon enough for them. They believe for a little while, then they fall away:

Mark 4:3“Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. 8Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times.”

Be found watching when our Lord comes back for us. It may be tonight, or we may have decades to wait for Him. What matters is that when He shows up for us, we are found watching like obedient children. grace and peace

Refusal to Repent, Babylon is Fallen

<< Jeremiah 5 >>

Jerusalem’s Godlessness
1“Roam to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem,
And look now and take note.
And seek in her open squares,
If you can find a man,
If there is one who does justice, who seeks truth,
Then I will pardon her.

2“And although they say, ‘As the LORD lives,’
Surely they swear falsely.”

3O LORD, do not Your eyes look for truth?
You have smitten them,
But they did not weaken;
You have consumed them,
But they refused to take correction.
They have made their faces harder than rock;
They have refused to repent.

We know from what is written in Matt 24 and Luke 17 that the coming of the Son of Man will be just like it was in the days of Noah and the days of Lot. If you remember the story of Lot, the Lord appeared to Abraham and told him that if only a few righteous could be found in Sodom, then the city would be spared. We know the outcome, not even a few righteous could be found, so the city was not spared.

We see this idea here in Jeremiah as well, if only a few righteous could be found, then Jerusalem would be pardoned, but a few could not be found. They refused to repent. This brings us to America and her fate. There is no other country in the world that measures up to America when it comes to meeting all the criteria to be end times Babylon. If America is indeed Babylon, don't you find it ironic that so many within her claim to be "godly" and "Christian?"

The Word tells us that over and over again, the Lord would spare whole cities if only a few righteous could be found in them, but a few could not be found. What will become of America when her sins are stacked up to the heavens. What will become of America when she claims that she is a Queen and there is no other? What will become of America when her nicolaitan priests known as "pastors" claim to be "men of god" yet they know not God?

Part of the reason past cities and peoples were destroyed was because they refused to repent. They did not repent because they did not think they were doing anything wrong, in fact, they thought they were "godly" until the very moment destruction flooded them. Where are the priests in Babylon (pastors in America) that are calling daily for repentance and turning away from sin? You cant find them. Today's babylonian, nicolaitan priests (pastors) wouldn't know what repentance was if it kicked them in the teeth. They do not know what repentance is, therefore they do not preach it. Not only do they not know repentance, they feel no need for it. After all, have you seen the size of their monument to men "church" buildings? Why repent when they have not sinned they say in their hearts.

Todays nicolaitan, babylonian pastors do not preach repentance for sins, and this while the Lord's eyes search the land for one or two men who do what is right so that babylon (America) may be spared from the coming destruction. The bible tells us that "in repentance and rest" is our salvation, but we would have none of it..

Isaiah 30:15 This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.

Babylon is fallen, fallen....there are none who do what is right. Everyone is right in their own mind but men do not know the requirements of the Lord, each goes his own way. So, the Lord looks for a few righteous to spare the land from destruction and where can these few be found?

This writer has been struck over the past month or so with thoughts about babylon/America. America is a land where people live in luxury unlike any other nation on earth. The standard of living in America is unparalleled when you compare how many live here with how many live like the "rich" comparatively to others in the world. America is a land of occult idols and symbols, look at her money and the idols she has erected for herself (Lady liberty in NY harbor, the entire construction of downtown Washington DC, what has been imprinted on her money etc).

Things have been so well with America because although she was birthed as an occult nation she also had enough godly seed within her to make her prosper. It is the light, not the darkness within a nation that causes them to prosper. It only takes a little light to drive out alot of darkness. I ask you though, what has happened to babylon's light?

America has been spared the disasters that are coming upon her. Time has been purchased for babylon due to the few righteous that still remain in her. There is coming a time when the righteous will be removed and there will be no more light to restrain the darkness that will overtake this nation. In the meantime, what can the righteous do? We can pray, we can confess our sins, the sins of our family and the sins of our nation to our God they way the prophets did for backslidden Israel. We can reason with the Lord for more good days because of the remnant that exists in the land. Time has been purchased for America, perhaps more time will be given if we change our ways...

If we say that we do not sin, we are liars.

1 John 1:10
... If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. ...

Let us repent, let us confess before God Almighty that we have fallen, fallen so far so fast and it is against Him alone that we have tresspassed. Let us seek peace and pursue it while the Lord's face and favor may still be found.

These are the things I hear the Lord saying to me today. grace and peace

Dec 6, What is the Lord Saying to the Churches?

Recently I believe the Lord led me to go back and read what He has to say to us through the prophets, that is, folks like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, etc. I just re-read the book of Isaiah and I was impressed with many thoughts. The Lord gives us a panorama of what's going to happen in this world.

First, things are going to be very very bad for those who do not know the Lord, and choose what displeases Him. All those who are plundering this world today, who have no regard for the poor or the ways of the Lord, they will be plundered just as they now plunder others.

As for believers, we see how problems arrive for them. When people who are called by the name of the Lord forget Him and instead seek their help from the world, bad things happen for them. Should a people called by the name of the Lord seek their God or not? People are looking for answers today in all the wrong places. This world does not have political problems, it has a sin problem. This world does not have social problems, it has a sin problem. This world does not have banker problems, it has a sin problem. If you want to know why the treasuries of the world are being plundered by robber bankers today, its the same reason why foreign peoples were sent against Israel in the past...sin and lack of remembrance of their God.

We need to refocus ourselves, re-center ourselves on the basic fundamentals of the faith. The Lord has not asked us to do things that require a Ph.D to figure out, we have been asked to love and be faithful, to seek the face of the Lord and choose the things that please Him. We are told to seek peace and pursue it. How hard is that? It's not hard, its a matter of choice and today everyone chooses their own way instead of the Lord's way.

The earth is staggering under the weight of the sin that is upon it. Those of us who are called by the name of the Lord should seek His face and turn away from our sin. We are not like the wicked of this world. For them, wrath and judgement are coming, for us, redemption and salvation. We cannot however sit back smugly like so many who rest in a false gospel that gives license to do "what thou wilt" as the satanists do and still expect to receive such a great salvation. Paul said we should "work out our salvation" with fear and trembling. John 15 tells us that there are those who are "in the vine" (meaning "in Christ") who can be cutoff from the vine if they are not fruitful. There is a big difference between entering into Christ and remaining there.

John 15:4
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must
remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

Remain in me is a command to you and me. We are to "remain" in Him. Apparently many people choose to disregard such instruction since it doesn't fit with their satanic "once saved always saved" doctine. Being cutoff from the vine does not sound "always saved" to me. Disregard at your own peril....

So, what is the Lord saying to the churches today? We were given the old testament as well as the new for a reason. We learn the character and nature of God through His Word. We also learn the character and nature of the mistakes made by our big brother (Israel) in the past. Let us learn how to please the Lord in every way, let us be thankful and rejoice always (yes...always), let us seek the Lord's face every day while He may still be found. Let us put away every thing that hinders our walk with the Lord in any way. Let us not turn to "Egypt" for help as Israel did (read Isaiah for the details) but instead let us seek the Lord for everything.

We were created as highly dependant creatures. We need so very much just to make it through each and every day. We were created with this large dependancy so the Lord could display His infinite grace to us in an ongoing fashion, day in and day out. The Lord loves us, we are His wife, His bride. This world is facing some really bad news these days, and they haven't seen anything yet. We are not the world though, we are children of the Most High God. We are members of the royal household. We have an inheritance that none of us can wrap our mind around. So then, let us keep in stride with the Spirit of God. The sons of God are led by the Spirit of God. He is leading, we must follow.

The Lord has been dropping little singposts along the path in life that I am walking. Those signposts and the guidance they give leads me to believe we have awhile yet before He shows up. Nevertheless, we must be watching and ready to meet Him each and every day.

grace and peace

Watch, Pray and Be Ready

Mark 13:33 Take heed, watch and pray, for ye have not known when the time is; 34 as a man who is gone abroad, having left his house, and given to his servants the authority, and to each one his work, did command also the porter that he may watch; 35 watch ye, therefore, for ye have not known when the lord of the house doth come, at even, or at midnight, or at cock-crowing, or at the morning; 36 lest, having come suddenly, he may find you sleeping; 37 and what I say to you, I say to all, Watch.'

I'm not sure the Lord could have fit the word "watch" in there any more than He did. Do you think He is trying to make a point to us? I certainly do. We are to watch and pray, not tomorrow, not next week, not at the mid point of the tribulation, not at the pre-wrath rapture point, not after the tribulation....NOW. And this is at the heart of the matter these days when so many have taken a broad path that leads to destruction. Many have chosen not to watch for the Lord's return today and I am sure that will work to their detriment.

We are to be watching every season:

Luke 21:36
... But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape
all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

We are given a very clear, very direct command to "watch at every season." Every season means there is no one season that we can "take off" from watching. It means we are watching always. What are we watching for? The Lord also makes this very clear, we are watching for His return. We are not watching for the anti-christ, the tribulation, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, etc etc. We are watching for our Lord each and every day. I don't care what your rapture timing doctrine is, if you are not watching for the Lord today and every day, you are wrong. Not because I say so, but because of the Lord's clear command.

This command we have to watch also illustrates why it is that so many remain on the broad path that leads to destruction instead of the narrow path that leads to life (Matt 7:13-28). If people choose the doctrines of men over the clear commands of God (in this case to watch), then how many other things are people choosing to do in disobedience to the Lord's command? Obedience is a big deal. You do not want to know what the consequences will be for living a disobedient life. I don't want to know either. Will you be "cutoff from the vine?" as we are insructed in John 15? I don't know, and I don't want to find out. We are told:

John 14:15
"If you love me, you will obey what I command"

There it is, love and obedience. Do you think anyone will make it into heaven that does not love Jesus Christ? That's an easy one to answer. You must love the Son of God therefore you must obey the Son of God. If you do not love Him you will not obey Him, and if you neither love nor obey His clear commands, what will become of you? Again, I am not your judge, these questions I ask myself as well as you. We are to test ourselves:

2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.

If we are not testing and examining ourselves, then once again, we have missed the mark and it is likely we will suffer for it.

We are commanded to watch, today, tomorrow and everyday thereafter. What are we watching for? The return of our Lord and Saviour. We may have a long time to wait, or we may be face to face with Him tonight. There is coming a time when there will be an open door in heaven (Rev 3). Open doors are for people to go through are they not?

Rev 3:8 I 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.

We are told in Luke 17 and Matt 24 that the coming of the Son of Man will be exactly like it was in the days of Noah and Lot. Exactly, not kind of like those days, exactly like those days:

Gen 7:13In 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; 14They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort. 15And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. 16And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

Noah and all the animals went into the ark and the Lord shut them in. Noah, his family and all the animals entered into a place of physical separation and protection from the flood that was outside. We are watching and praying for the Lord return that will occur in days just like Noah and Lot encountered. The church in Rev 3 is told that a door has been opened for them and they will be kept from the trial that is coming on all the earth. A trial that is coming on all the earth is the time of Jacob's trouble, also known as Daniel's 70th week, also known as the tribulation. That church will be kept from it. In Luke 21:36 we are guaranteed that there is an "escape from all" coming for those who are worthy of it. What is this escape from all? Escape from all of what? Again, easy question to answer, all of the judgement and wrath coming on this world.

We are told to be watching for the Lord's return. The Lord's return for us is also known as the blessed hope. Our expectation of the Lord's return for us is to give us hope and peace. The Lord has gone to build mansions for us in heaven so that where He is we may be also. This idea clearly portrayed to us in the bible is an exact mirror of the Jewish wedding. The groom goes to prepare a place for the bride and when that place has been completed and the Father approves, the groom comes back for the bride. We, the church are the bride of Christ. We are watching and waiting for our Groom in heaven to come back for us "with a shout" just as the Hebrews have done for centuries in their wedding traditions and just as the rapture of the church, the harpazo catching away of the bride of Christ.

This world is falling into hopelessness and despair. People are spiritually empty and bankrupt. These days are the days of Philadelphia and Laodicea. The Laodicean church thinks it is rich in every way but the Lord tells it that it is absolutely bankrupt and naked. The churches of Philadelphia and Laodicea are the only 2 churches where a "door" is mentioned:

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.


20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

The true church has an open door set before them, but the laodicean church has a closed door where the Lord is outside knocking....big difference wouldn't you say? People go through open doors to get into an ark and to escape what is coming on the entire world.

Let's be found watching for our Lord when He returns for us so that we may go through that open door in heaven and therefore escape all of what's about to happen. Let us also be obedient to the command to pray that we are found worthy of this escape, just as Noah and Lot were found righteous and worthy in their generations to escape all of the flood and all of the fire and brimstone.

These things are what I hear the Lord speaking to me today. Grace and peace

The Coming "Flood"

The following is a rough brain dump of what the Lord deposited in my mind over a 2 hour period yesterday morning:

Relative vs Exact Timing

The Lord explains to us 16:2He replied,a “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ 3and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. 4A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.

The top layer meaning of this ^^ is obvious. A deeper layer of meaning is His return....the timing of His return, when we see storm clouds we know its about to rain but we do not know exactly when the first drop will fall, see the difference? Its the difference of exact vs relative timing. You know its going to rain sometime soon, but you don't know when the first raindrop will fall, you also don't know whether the storm you see on the horizon is going to end up depositing light raindrops or Hurricaine Katrina...

As in the days of Noah, people eating drinking, planting building marrying until the day Noah entered the ark. today we have food costing more and some parts of the world are already in famine, but the 3rd seal in Rev 6 will be the difference between a drop of rain and a flood. The 3rd seal and all the other seals will be many exponential levels higher than famines we have seen in this world to date, same with all the other seals. It's important to note that the Lord himself has used "floods" to destroy the people of the ancient world and to teach us about the coming destruction of the people of the present world. The Lord promised that He would never again destroy the world in the same way He did in Noah's day. However, He did say that the coming destruction would be "like a flood." Daniel 9:26 The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.

Floods "suddenly destroy" people. The sudden aspect of their demise is what hinders them from finding safety while it can still be found. By the time they realize they are in real trouble, well, they are in real trouble. What does the Lord tell us, His children about "sudden destruction" such as what is coming to destroy the world's people?

Prov 3:25Have no fear of sudden disaster

or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,

26for the Lord will be your confidence

and will keep your foot from being snared.

Pay close attention to verse 26 there. Not only are we protected from "sudden destruction" as we see in verse 25 that includes the coming "like a flood" event, but we are also protected from our "foot being snared?" That "snare" mentioned in verse 26 bring anything to mind? How about this?

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.

It's hand in glove folks. No "creative" bible interpretation needed...Form your conclusions as the Spirit leads from this..

Daniels 70th week, (obviously) occurs in 70th week, it is 7 prophetic "days" (7 years) long and starts with the Lord sealing 144,000 (7*70,000) and we find it in Revelation 7. Enough "7"s in there for you to think the Lord is giving us a clue? I see a needle and thread made up of 7s sewing this all neatly together for us to form a picture. The Lord's dealing with the nation of Israel officially starts again in Rev 7 with the sealing of the 144,000. All of Rev 6 is a warm up act that appears to come on the world "like a flood" and it starts in one day. Remember Luke 17 and Matt 24, the very day that Lot left Sodom and Noah went into the Ark, judgement fell...that very day. Also remember that the angels could not let destruction fall on Sodom until Lot had been physically removed from the city. The coming of the Son of Man will be a direct, exact replica of what happened in the days of Noah and Lot. It is guaranteed because the Lord said it would happen in this way.

Rev 6 there is no way to time the beginning of it or duration of it but it appears that all 7 seals open daniels 70th week with a "bang" of sudden destruction, just as it happened in the days of Noah, they didn't see it until they were in it.

Those in Seal 5, Rev 6 under the alter are all those who have died for Christ from the beginning of the church right up to till the Lord comes in the air to receive us. They died for their testimony. Nowhere in Rev 5 does it say they died because the anti-christ persecuted them while he was on earth. These are souls from throughout the church age who have given themselves for Christ.

All of us "in Christ" do not have the same destiny, all of us are not destined to die by beheading/being shot/fed to lions etc for Christ. Some very godly men have died "in Christ" without being martyred. To paint the destinies all of those of us in Christ with one broad brushstroke (ie we will all be martyred by the anti-christ in the tribulation) would be a huge mistake that inevitably leads to errors in understanding the Word of God and therefore errors in understanding what is going to happen in the days ahead.

Nowhere in the Lord's description of the days leading up to Noah entering the ark... do we see even a hint of any of the 7 seals, we see eating and drinking instead of famine as one example of this. Only someone high on crack cocaine would equate "eating and drinking" (Luke 17, Matt 24-the coming of the Son of Man) with Seal 3 of Rev 6 (the seal judgements)And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. The only explanation for this is the plain reading of the Word as it was written, the seals are not opened until the day We enter our "ark" then sudden destruction falls "like a flood" famine war disease and pestilence overtake this world and humanity in a way that causes hearts to melt with fear. The "flood" of events will be the difference of one drop of rain falling out of the sky and floodwaters covering the earth. Its a difference of intensity and duration such that it will overwhelm makind's ability to cope.

I have asked the Lord many times if I should stock up on guns and ammo and food for the coming "flood" of events that will overtake this world. The answer has been a stony silence in my spirit that tells me that we absolutely do not need, and will not need the things that people are stocking up on today. With this said, I do have some extra supplies in the house for events that could take place before "the flood" and our escape. Signs in the sun, moon, and stars point to changes coming to this earth. The changes coming will be catastrophic, read Rev 6 for the details. This inner witness that tells me there is no need to get ready for the end of the world as we know it, also fits hand in glove with the plain reading of scripture. We are watching and waiting for the return of Jesus Christ our Lord, we are not waiting and watching for the anti-christ.

There is an alternate interpretation for the inner witness I have that there is no need to stock up supplies for the time of Jacob's trouble: that is, believers will need and receive divine assistance to make it through the days ahead. Any supplies stocked up will only last for so long, and the destruction and devastation coming will be beyond anything any one of us can even imagine right now.

Isaiah 13:12
I will make man scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir.

Mark 13:20 If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.

Read that carefully ^^^. What is coming will wipe out most of mankind. Most of the population of the earth today will either escape out or die out. Some people will be preserved only because the days will be shortened. The Lords own words tell us that had He not shortened the days all mankind would be wiped out.

The Word of the Lord is true. His promises can be trusted. There is an escape coming. There is a day when those who are found worthy will get into a modern day "ark" just as Noah did. There is a day coming when those who are found worthy will be physically removed from the worldwide Sodom just as Lot was. Physical removal of the righteous is what happened in the days of Noah and Lot, that's a fact. Look for it again someday in our future.

It has been on my mind frequently of late that America is indeed Babylon the great we read about in scripture. Only one country in the history of the world fits ALL of the requirements listed to identify this endtime nation, and America is it. What once was a nation that at least in part sought the Lord and His righteousness has become a den of demons, a house of robbers, a refuge for every unclean spirit and everything that is dirty and filthy in this world. America is an occult nation, don't take my word for it, look at the signs and symbols she proudly displays in her capitol, on her money, in her great cities (NYC). Think deeply about the meaning of the following scripture:

Rev 18:1And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

It says Babylon is fallen. Don't think here of national destruction, although that is certainly coming, think in terms of "fallen" angels, a fallen nature. America, which is Babylon the great has fallen from grace. Again, don't take my word for it, the Lord Himself follows up with what "fallen" means here, He says and Babylon "is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird."

The title of this blog is Christian Apostasy. The chief trait of apostasy is denial. Today's babylonian form of churchianity is in denial. They cannot and will not believe that they participate in a babylonian form of apostate christianity. The cannot and will not believe that their pastoral system is idolatrous from the ground up. They will not acknowledge that they are fallen, as America is fallen. If all the churches on all the street corners of America today were indeed full of light, then America would not be a den of demons and a habitation of devils that it is today. The fact is, that what calls itself light, is not light, because it has not driven out darkness, therefore it is a lie and a definition.

Another thought the Lord gave me. The fact that some true believers can live in Babylon the great today, which has become a den of demons and the home of every unclean thing, and still cling to the Lord in truth and purity, is a demonstration of the Lord's power. It is a miracle that anyone holds onto the truth in this great harlot nation. Darkness is everywhere, and yet a remnant remains as it always has, and always will. The Lord's Word is true, every last letter of it.

One last thought about the time of Jacob's trouble/tribulation/Daniel's 70th week. Many contend today that we will go through the seal judgements in Rev 6 because they are not God's wrath. Although they are positively wrong, the seals are the Lord's wrath (famine and war have been used as God's wrath in the past..look it up), another fact destroys their argument as well. The opening of the seals are judgement on this Christ rejecting world. All of what is coming "like a flood" is judgement on the inhabitants of this world. So let me ask, are we who are in Christ, children of God going to be subject to God's judgement on this wicked world. The answer is obvious and it is NO. We are not destined for God's wrath NOR His judgements on this wicked world. We are destined for the judgement seat of Christ which is a judgement for REWARD, not punishment. No wrath, no judgement reserved for the wicked, means no Rev 6 seal judgments for the children of God:

Jer 25:31 Wasting hath come unto the end of the earth, For a controversy hath Jehovah with nations, He hath executed judgment for all flesh, The wicked! He hath given them to the sword, An affirmation of Jehovah.

2 Thessalonians 2:12
... in order that all may come under judgement who have refused to believe the truth and have taken pleasure in unrighteousness

2 Peter 2:9
... the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from temptation, and on the other hand how to keep the unrighteous under punishment in readiness for the Day of Judgement

Rev 3:10 Because 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.

Those who refuse to believe the truth are those who are coming under judgement...not us. The Word is very clear, we will be kept from the hour of temptation. The Lord knows how to rescue godly men. Remember Noah? Remember Lot? Remember their physical removal from the judgements inflicted on the wicked? Repeat performance coming to the earth some day..

Keep the faith, be patient, we may have quite some time to wait, or the Lord could knock on that "door" (rev 4, Matt 25) and those of us who hear it must immediately open it for Him. grace and peace

More on "The Clouds Parted"

The last post here described an experience I had with the Lord. I was in a mental and physical "fog" and the Lord parted that fog, brought back the bright lights in my heart and mind and gave me a clear view of what my future should look like.

I don't want to re-write that post, but I would like to add to it that the Lord showed me a number of very specific, seemingly mundane things in my life that I need to do. The Lord truly is interested in every detail of our lives. I think about 5 or 6 things fired through my mind in relatively quick succession while I was sitting at my desk in a state of bliss.

The reason I write this to you today is to ask you, "how much would someone pay to have God Almighty part the clouds in their life and show them their path forward in a very specific way, right down to the details? How much is that worth? I can tell you that the Lord's counsel to me is worth more than all the treasure the world has to offer. To know for a fact that the Lord has spoken to you is something that goes beyond words, and its something He does for us. I know He does these things because the Word says He will lead us and He just performed an act of "leading"....again, His Word is true down to the very letter. At various times in my life He has done this kind of thing but its always in different ways at different times.

Seek the Lord's face. Ask Him for His counsel. Pray, seek, ask, knock and the door will be opened. There is nothing special about this brother writing to you today. Anything done for me, can and will be done for you if you believe and keep the faith. Don't believe anything I tell you, read your bibles, seek the Word and counsel found in there. Seek the Lord and His guidance. I can tell you that this experience with the Lord was a surprise. I have been asking Him repeatedly about the future, and until writing this just now, I had not realized that He gave me what I needed to know about the future and all of it was very specific to me and my life. I had been asking Him about more broad world issues and He answered with specifics about my life only.

It is for us to ask, and for Him to deliver how He wants and when He wants. He does not answer according to the preconceived agendas we have. He answers as a loving Father with what we need to know at the right time. I have been riding a kind of high since that day and I intent to proceed forward boldly with the information and direction the Lord has given me. There is true power in knowing for sure that you are doing exactly what you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to be doing it. These things only the Lord can deliver. He is very very good.

Keep the faith, ask, seek, knock. Grace and peace

The Clouds Parted

The past few days I haven't been feeling great, good enough to function, but not great. As as I sitting in my fog yesterday morning, it was as if the Lord parted the clouds in my mind and transported me into a beautiful day. Instantly light was shed on my heart and mind and I saw everything in my life the way it should be. I was overjoyed and greatly motivated. The Lord went through a host of different issues with me that can be summed up by the scriptures listed below.

Psalm 97:11
Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.

Romans 8:14
because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

Psalm 25:15
My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.

Proverbs 8:34
... Blessed is the one who listens to me, watching daily
at my gates, waiting beside my doors.

The Parable of the Talents
Matt 25:14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

The Lord clearly impressed me to follow Him "to the exclusion of all else." Just as Israel followed the Lord out of Egypt in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night, so we are to follow the Lord. The sons of God are led by the Spirit of God. We are to separate ourselves from the world. The word "church" as it is translated in Greek is "ekklesia." Literally, that means nothing close to what people today call "church." Ekklesia literally means "the called out ones under authority" or something very close to that. Note especially "the called out ones."

We have been called out of this world system, out of babylon and her harlot church which is ruled by the nico (conquer) laitans (you) (Rev 2). Yes, we are in the world but we are not of it. We admit that we are aliens and strangers here with a kingdom that is not of this world.

The Lord is coming soon for us, when exactly I have no idea. What I believe the Lord has impressed upon me is that while we watch and wait for His return daily we are to "work out our salvation with fear and trembling" (Phil 2:12) as Paul said and to employ the "talents" the Lord has revealed to us by faith (Matt 25). We are to do these things with much thanksgiving and rejoicing always. We are to have faith in God, pray and ask for what we need, then believe we have received what we asked for (Mark 11:22-24, James 1:8).

Also, I've been put on an internet "fast" again (meaning no worldy "news" of any kind) for 30 days other than what I need to do for work. Again, the world is falling all over itelf to "stay connected" which is why you can't drive by a car without seeing everyone with a cell phone sewn permanently to their face or walk by someone on the street who isn't "texting." Meanwhile, the Lord has pointed me in the exact opposite direction with the instruction: disconnect. I am 100% positive that I can follow the Lord to the exclusion of all else, without a crack-berry or cell phone or Ipod permanently attached to my face and come out in the end light years ahead of the people I see around me. That is to say, I believe that if I do what the Lord has instructed me to do, I will benefit. These things are written here today so that you too may benefit.

We will find the Lord when we seek Him with all our heart. The enemy and the world are found in the noise and chaos of the world. Our Lord is found in stillness and quietness of spirit. He speaks to us in a still and quiet voice. I recently watched the new "karate kid" and one line in the entire movie really stood out to me. Jackie Chan said to his apprentice "there's a big difference between being still and doing nothing." To that I say AMEN. Let's be still and hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches today.

Thursday, November 11, 2010


There are a number of alarming predictions floating around the Internet telling us that "the end is near" and some alarming cataclysmic event is waiting for us any day now. As with all things, I have taken these things to the Lord in prayer and this is what I perceive His response to be:

1. What about the Restrainer? I've been sitting on this post, not writing to be sure that what I write is not more of the opinion of man (which we have enough of already) but something that is actually from the Lord. I've had "the Restrainer" lit up inside me each time I've asked the question about all these cataclysmic predictions.

2 Thess 2:7 (YLT) for the secret of the lawlessness doth already work, only he who is keeping down now will hinder -- till he may be out of the way, 8 and then shall be revealed the Lawless One, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the manifestation of his presence,

Let's be clear about what this means. There have been world wars, famines, pestilences, a worldwide depression and more during this age of grace we live in, while the restrainer has restrained. Could we see more of the same before the restrainer is removed? Absolutely. Just realize that what is being restrained will be much much worse than anything the world has ever seen, but until that day that the restrainer is removed, why should we believers be troubled and fear like the world does?

The restrainer is still restraining today, that's part of what I hear the Lord saying.

2. Watch and Pray

This is the other part of the answer. The Word tells us over and over again to watch. Watch for what? 1. the Lord's coming, and 2. Watch and pray that we do not fall into temptation:

Matthew 25:13 So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.

Mark 14:38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.

We can put aside all rapture timing debates here and now and say emphatically that if you are not watching for the Lord's return each and every day, you are wrong. Read Matt 25:13 again and again until it sinks in, if that doesn't work read the other 3 gospel writers telling you the same thing until it sinks in.

There is no compelling argument, none, for disobeying this clear command in scripture. I will concede to the "other tribbers" that I am not 100% sure of the rapture timing. They must concede to me that they are not 100% sure of the rapture timing. In this case where nobody is 100% sure, the only reasonable thing to do is what the Word of God clearly tells us to do, that is, be ready to meet the Lord every day.

3. The word of His patience

Again, I'm not going to get into rapture timing here. What I will address is the overwhelming and persistent command we read for us to be patient:

Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience? You think we need to be patient? Sounds like it to me. Another big note in this neighborhood of scripture. The Lord pointed out to me for the first time (and I've read Rev 1-3) so many times I've lost count, that two and only two of the "churches of revelation" mentioned have a "door" mentioned by the Lord:

The Philadelphia church
Rev 3:8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.


The Laodicean church
Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

That says that both churches exist at the same time, a time relevant to the "door" Jesus is talking about. Which "door" is He talking about? Just keep reading because immediately after mentioning "doors" to the churches of Philadelphia and Laodicea, we read in 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.

Now, regardless of what your rapture timing view is, we all have to admit that "doors" are used for people to go through, and specifically these "doors" are described to the churches. A "door in heaven" is open in Rev 4 then we see no more specific mentioning of the church for the rest of the book of Revelation. I know, I know, people have excuses for why the church is not mentioned. The counter to their arguments is, the Lord specifically addresses the churches by name in Rev 2-3, why would He not specifically address them for the rest of the book? Did the Lord forget the names of the churches? There are no idle words in the bible, if something is specifically mentioned, its for a reason, if something is mentioned specifically then not mentioned again, its for a reason...

In my mind, the rapture debate has been settled for good. It has been settled in a one word command...WATCH. If the pre-trib view is correct, I'm covered. If the mid-trib view is correct, I'm covered. If the pre-wrath view is correct, I'm covered. If the post-trib view is correct, I'm covered. If I die before any of these things, I'm covered. Readiness to meet the Lord every day is something there is no argument closed.

Now, back to the original reason for this post: the doom and gloom predictions coming out of the woodwork today. I'm sorry if I can't get excited about the "end is near" message any longer. Over time, the people soothsaying and shamanizing the future through all their "signs and symbols" and other methods have been wrong.

I'll be the first to admit I thought the "end was near" years ago...and yet the world continues on just as in the "days of Noah" and the "days of Lot." What happens when year after year people predict the "end is near" and the world goes on just as it always has? The prognosticators lose all credibility, that's what happens. Those who hear them start to say

2 Peter 3:4 They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."

The Lord has my attention today. The Lord may come back today for us, therefore we are to watch, today and every day for His coming and we are to pray that while we watch we do not fall into temptation.

These days call for patience. Be watching, be ready, but be prepared to wait however long it takes for our Master to return for us. While we wait, we should expect the same protection and provision we have received during our lifetime. The same God who has provided for me and protected me for decades will continue to do so till the very end. Never will I leave you or forsake you was His promise...I'm a believer in His promises. This is what I hear the Spirit saying today. Grace and peace

Expect the Very Best From the Lord

I was just on my knees in prayer and this one came across my mind and I had to write it down before I forgot. The Lord has peppered my mind with this phrase over a series of weeks now and it is only now that I am posting it.

This goes hand in hand with the last post here about the character of God and the pre-tribulation rapture of the saints. Somewhere along the way, someone, some organization, some spirit sold people on a bizarre and sick view of our God. At a time when the world is suffering incredibly, should we not expect the very BEST from our Lord? If not, why not? This really gets to the heart of the matter. What is your view of this God we read about in the bible? Do you really know Him? If you do not really know Him, then you really won't know what to expect from Him. Are you still with me here?

I need to say it again right here, expect the best from our Lord. If you are "in Christ" and at peace with Him, you should expect our Father's mercy, kindness and generosity. I would advise you to couple this expectation with an extreme sense of humility, thanksgiving and praise or your expectation might turn into demand and then you'll be in trouble (many today find themselves in that position).

We are children of the Most High God, do you have any idea what that means? We are inheritors of the Kingdom, along with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, can you wrap your mind around that? We will be seated WITH CHRIST..ON HIS THRONE in heavenly places, do you have any idea how glorious that will be? Who are we that our Lord has been, and will be so good to us?

Rev 3:20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

There's that door in heaven we see over and over again, Matt 25, Rev 4, here in Rev 3, and other places I cant remember right now :-)

Expecting the very best from the Lord ties in directly with our outlook on rapture timing. Who are these people who expect to go through the tribulation, do they know the Lord? Really? Intellectual knowledge of the scripture is meaningless. I don't care if you have a PhD, ThD, ABCD or any other degree behind your name, that doesn't mean you know squat about the Lord. Proof? Satan intellectually knows the bible word for word, all of it, and yet he clearly doesn't "get it."

Most people will not make it into heaven. I don't know what the percentage is, I don't know what the numbers are, I just know for a fact that few will make it. How do we know this, re-read Matt 7:13-28, read the Lord's words to the churches in Rev 2-3 and the entire history of Israel. Its always a remnant that is saved. The Word says that our God would have all men to be saved, unfortunately, men choose other paths for themselves.

Expect the very best from the Lord.

Noah did not spend one second treading water during the flood. Lot did not brush a single fiery ember off his clothes when Sodom burned to the ground. We should expect the EXACT same experience for ourselves here in these last days. In Luke 17 and Matt 24 our Lord tells us that His coming will be EXACTLY like it was in the days of Noah and Lot. The stories of Noah and Lot involved the righteous being spared the judgement that came upon the wicked instead.

Expect the very best from the Lord.

Noah and Lot were not even in the age of grace as we are now. Noah and Lot did not have the Son of God advocating for them at the Father's right hand as we do now. Noah and Lot were not Spirit indwelt believers as we are now. So again, why should we not expect to escape the fiery tribulation that lies ahead of us?

Expect the very best from the Lord.

Many people claim to know the Lord, but they do not know Him. Another more incriminating way to say it is, He does not know them:

Matt 7:21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

These many call themselves christians today. These many teach all kinds of doctrines that will not benefit themselves or those who hear them. These people cannot judge what is written in the Word of God correctly because the fear and knowledge of the Lord IS the beginning of wisdom and understanding. If they don't know Him, they have no understanding, and no understanding means they have no correct interpretation.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding.

Proverbs 9:10 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

I can tell you that with all my heart, I am expecting the very best from the Lord. What's happening outside is secondary. Its whats happening inside of us that is primary. The Lord has been very good to me and my family. That does not mean I am special, it means HE IS FAITHFUL. What is written here is for you, to edify in accordance with the Word which tells us:

Romans 14:19
Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification

There is an escape from all coming (Luke 21:36). There is an event coming that will be EXACTLY like the escapes of Noah and Lot who did not for a second have to deal with the judgements that came on the wicked in their day. I don't care what you call it, how you twist it, or how many 200 page e-books you write, if I have the same experience that Noah and Lot had, I did "escape all."

Debunking Objections to the Pre-Trib Rapture

The "other tribbers" have a multi faceted problem in their attempt to prove the Pre-trib rapture of the church wrong. They have to overcome:

1. The preponderance of scriptural evidence
2. The purpose of the tribulation
3. The nature of our God

The purpose of the tribulation was covered in the previous post. The bottom line there is-there is no reason whatsover for the church to be involved in the Daniel's 70th week. We weren't here in the first 69 weeks, we won't be here for the 70th week.

The purpose of this post is to address item 3 in the list above that we hear little to nothing about: the nature of our God.

Somewhere along the line, someone began to sell people on the idea that we have some kind of sourpuss, cosmic killjoy kind of God in the sky that enjoys seeing His people suffer. If that were true, that we did serve that kind of God, then perhaps the "other tribbers" might have a better argument.

As I read the bible, and I look back at my own life's testimony, here's what I see of the God of the bible:

1. He is longsuffering, putting up with my waywardness well beyond what I deserve to bring me around to His way through kindness and grace.

2. He is kind, tender, merciful and generous. Indeed He never puts on our shoulders any burden that is more than we can handle, though at times He has tested my strength and faith to the very last ounce.

3. He means what He says. Read the bible like a little child and I assure you that you will be much better off than any of the so called christian scholars of our day. If the Lord said it, He meant it. There is no need to write a 200 page book to explain simple lines of scripture. For example, if the Lord said there would be an escape from all, there will be an escape from all. No need for long lectures or 3day long debates or 200+ page books to explain or clarify what the Lord meant. It means what it would mean to a child.

4. He wants the very best for His children. Read Isaiah 54 for a glimpse into the character and nature of our God. He wants the very best for His children.

Think of our Lord's nature like a little child. If you were a child in a house with an older brother, and that older brother was always constantly getting into trouble with your father, would you expect your Father to punish you for the transgressions of your older brother? No, no reasonable child would expect that. We are the younger child (the church) and Israel is our older brother who to this day rejects Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

Our God is a loving God, but He is also just. A righteous judge does not punish the innocent. The bible defines innocence differently than the world does. Innocence is being free from sin, which means covered by the blood that Jesus shed for us. The church by definition is a blood bought prize. Our sins have been removed from us as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103). Nobody who is on the narrow path that leads to life, who is covered by the blood of Jesus "needs" to go through any part of Daniel's 70th week.

The story of Noah shows us the Lord's character and His coming for us will be exactly like the story of Noah. If Noah escaped all of the flood, so will we. If Lot escaped all of the fire that fell on Sodom, so will we escape all the judgement coming to the world soon.

More Evidence of a Pre-Trib Rapture/Escape From All of the Church

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

The Lord our God has a purpose for everything He does. The tribulation is no different, there is a purpose for the tribulation/70th week of Daniel. To understand the escape from all/rapture of the church it is helpful to understand what it is we are escaping. We are escaping the 70th week out of 69 weeks that have nothing whatsoever to do with the church. Make sense?

The church wasn't around for the first 69 weeks so why exactly is it that the church "must" be around for the 70th week? The "other tribbers" have no legitimate answer for this, just excuses.

The purpose of the tribulation/Daniels 70th week is spelled out in detail by the Lord. What is the purpose of the tribulation?

1. to finish the transgression
2. to make an end of sins
3. to make reconciliation for iniquity
4. to bring in everlasting righteousness
5. to seal up the vision and prophecy
6. to anoint the most Holy

As we look at this list it becomes very apparent that the church has no place whatsoever in the purpose outlined. For example "to finish the transgression" what does the church and "finish the transgression" have in common? Nothing..we have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, Israel has not

Next? To make an end of sins. Again, when Jesus died on the cross for us and we accept what He did for us all our sins are washed away (provided we remain in Him, but thats a topic for another day).

Next? To make reconciliation for iniquity? This one should be like a 100ft pine tree slapping you across the face, again, what exactly did Jesus do on the cross for us? If it wasn't to make reconciliation for our iniquity then what was it?

4,5,6 all are the capstones at the end of the tribulation.

So again, we see no place for the church, no purpose for the church, no reason whatsoever for the church to take part in the 70th week of 69 weeks appointed for THY PEOPLE, that is, the people of Israel. The other tribbers cannot accept any of this so they begin to make excuses..yea but! they say world without end.

Why is it that the other tribbers are so hell bent on entering the tribulation and taking everyone and anyone they can with them? Is it because deep down inside they feel that they need the tribulation? Is there a witness inside of them that tells them they are on a collision course with the tribulation? There is no evidence these people can be shown to change their mind, and I don't think their mind should be changed, why?

It pains me to say this, but most people are not right with the Lord today, therefore they are not ready for the pre-tribulation rapture. We are told in Matt 7:14-28 that only a few are going to make it into heaven. We have the historical record of Israel being destroyed by the Lord over and over again with only a remnant being saved. We have Noah, the only family in the known world who escaped the flood. We have Lot the only man (with 2 daughters) to escape Sodom. The pattern is established. Why else do you think the Lord preemtively asked when He comes to earth will He find faith?

Luke 18:8 ... Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

We all know that the Lord is not pleased that most people will perish. He has been warning this world for years now, He continues to warn the people of this world day in and day out. The Lord's warning and discipline are a blessing. One could argue that with the events surrounding us today, with the world plunging into the greatest depression, we are in the outer bands (using hurricane terminology) of the tribulation storm now.

Debunking Objections to the Pre-Trib Rapture of the Church

As time permits (and the Spirit leads), I will address objections people have to the Pre-tribulation, pre-time of Jacob's trouble, escape from all of the Church.

Here's one of the objections:

2 Thess 2:1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

One of the objections to the pre-trib rapture comes from an absolute butchery of the exegesis of this piece of scripture.

Note with me that in verse 1 above "our gathering together unto Him" is mentioned. That's the rapture right? Ok, great.

Next, and after the rapture is mentioned, in verse 2 the day of the Lord is mentioned, are you still with me?

Next, in verse 3, immediately after the day of the Lord is mentioned we are told that "that day" will not come until the falling away and anti-christ appears. This is the most basic and most straightforward kind of analysis you can do on the Word of God and yet people willfully butcher it to make it say what it clearly does not say to drive forward their errant doctrines.

"That day will not come" is written immediately after the "day of the Lord" so "that day" referred to here is clearly the "day of the Lord" NOT "our gathering together unto Him."

How is it that the pre-wrath and post-trib crowds skip right over that giant "day of the Lord" wording in neon lights which is attached at the hip with "that day" will not come?

Two events are mentioned here 1. our gathering together unto Him and 2. the day of Christ. They are two different events and nowhere in the bible is the rapture or the escape from all referred to as "that day" so why exactly is it that the "other tribbers" feel they can call the rapture "that day" here.

Consider this objection to the pre-trib rapture debunked.

The Theft of Hope

The enemy comes to kill steal and destroy:

John 10:10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

One of the things the enemy has wisely targeted for theft in this world is people's hope. Why is it a wise target for the enemy? When you take a person's hope, you have taken everything.....I've read books about survivors of concentration camps who tell us that very shortly after prisoners gave up hope, they died, without fail.

Look at the world around us today. We hear and see a steady stream of bad news, with no hope of anything positive on the horizon. Steal hope, kill and destroy the people. That's the plan and it is working.

Speaking of hope, I want to tell you today of a spectacular confirmation the Lord gave me recently. Words fail to describe fully what I experienced but it was something like have a 40 billion watt searchlight focused on your spirit, having your insides radiated, lit up, brightened. It was like having a 4th of July fireworks display go off inside of you. I hope you get the idea. What did the Lord confirm to me, and in me?

The Blessed Hope IS the pre-tribulation rapture/escape from all of the neon flashing lights.

Some people might say "duh" we've known that for a long time pal, welcome to the party. To that I'd say, yes, we have known that, but satanic agents like the pre-wrath, post-trib teachers and preachers and others have been hard at work attempting, to KILL, STEAL, and DESTROY that hope.

How would you feel today if you knew for a FACT that the Lord was coming back for us soon, BEFORE the tribulation/7 year time of Jacob's trouble started? You'd be quite encouraged wouldn't you? Hope does that. Our Lord wrote to us with many promises. He has encouraged us with many promises. One of those promises is called the blessed hope...

Titus 2:13 while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing
of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,

I'm going to make a simple statement right now that will help you alot. Make up your mind about the rapture question NOW, then stop rehashing it. Stop surfing all the sites and reading all the material that only serves to kill steal and destroy your hope. If you have decided that you believe that there will be a pre-tribulation rapture of the church then become SINGLE MINDED about it, STOP waffling:

James 1:8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.

It has been proven here time and time again that the pre-wrath and post-trib teachers have NOTHING of value to offer you that you don't already have as a pre-trib believer. If Jesus shows up soon, they will likely have MAJOR problems. Re-read the parable of the virgins in Matt 25. As you believe, so you receive, and the pre-wrath, post-trib crowd have been arguing for years to anyone who will listen that we all need a good heaping dose of tribulation before we see heaven.

I am inclined to believe that those who have argued so strenuously that everyone needs to go through the tribulation, that they themselves will get a heaping plate full of they believe, so they receive:

Matthew 8:13 ... And at that ... And Jesus said unto the centurion,Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee.

Do not let the satanic pre-wrath and post-trib message to steal another ounce of hope from you. Let them snicker, let them sneer and scoff. Scoffers were promised, and we see them all around us today don't we?

2 Peter 3:3 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.

When you find out how much Satan has stolen from you, and how much he still plans to steal from you, you will be steaming mad. I know I am. Aren't you sick and tired of being lied to, stolen from, and deceived?

Make up your mind, then committ yourself to what you believe. If, and its a big if, the pre-trib position was wrong, we have NOTHING to lose. We are watching and waiting for the Lord's return WHENEVER it happens, today, tomorrow, mid-trib, post-trib, it doesn't matter, we wait every day for the Lord to knock on that "door in heaven" (Matt 25/Rev 4) so we can open it. I see no flaw whatsoever in taking that approach.

We are looking for Jesus Christ, the "other tribbers" are looking for the anti-christ. We are looking for our redemption, the "other tribbers" are looking for their tribulation.

Luke 21:28 ... But when these things begin to come to pass, look up and lift
up your heads, because your redemption draws nigh.

Notice it says "your redemption" NOT the tribulation draws nigh....

Stop allowing this world, Satan and his agents to steal your hope. The promises of our Lord are ROCK SOLID. I cannot remember a time in my life when the Lord has EVER confirmed within me a truth like He has over the past few days with the pre-tribulation rapture. It IS coming, just like He said it would.

Satan HATES the idea of anyone escaping his worldwide bloodbath. Satan HATES the idea of the pre-trib rapture. The time for debating is over. Focus, committ, persevere. My God has never ever EVER let me down. I believe that He has spoken to my spirit in a spectacular way, confirming what He has had written now for thousands of years.

Remember, nothing written here is anything new. The blessed hope is the pre-tribulation rapture of the church. Its an OLD idea that has been systematically downplayed, ridiculed, attacked and stolen from the minds and hearts of believers for years now. It's time to take it back...
