Nibiru: If the Shoe Fits, Wear It

ELE-nin was not itself the "extinction level event" but was rather the harbinger of an extinction level event. ELE-nin did not cause the earth to turn into a washing machine that thrashed everything on earth, but rather it appears to be a warning that the "washing machine" type event is coming.

Come on brother D, really? Can't we let all this space doom stuff go...please? I guess thats a question for the Lord since this happens to be His blog, not mine. Not that being His instrument qualifies this writer as anything, but where and what and how this instrument is told to lay ink, ink is laid (figuratively speaking.)

The bible is our fact book. It has never been wrong and it will never be wrong. The bible tells us to "look up." What do we see when we literally look up? "oh brother D, you take the bible too literally!" Really? You should take the bible literally as well. There will be many many many sorry people that did not take the bible literally enough....

What does the bible tell us? Look up:
... So when all these things begin to happen, stand and
look up, for your salvation is near!

When we are certain that the rapture will be pre-tribulation and we see the tribulation nearing, should we not get excited? Yes, we should get excited. If people are becoming fearful at the approach of the tribulation that is indicitive of many things like fear, lack of faith, lack of love, none of which should have any foothold in the life of a believer.

The Lord gave me a good way of looking at the rapture the other day. Basically He said how we look at it reflects our attitude toward the Lord's faithfulness. What does that mean? It means that when the Lord has delivered you from every single trial and tribulation in this life so far, you end up with a certain attitude and confidence. The Lord has always, always always provided for this servant, the Lord has always protected this servant, the Lord has always led this servant, the Lord has always been this servants refuge and high tower against every foe and every trial of life. That is my testimony, that the Lord is faithful. And that testimony has naturally led to a certain world view, and spiritual view, and rapture view etc.

Do you understand now? People all over the world, calling themselves "christians" are telling you that the Lord will do different things. Why? Because they themselves have a world view based on who they are (not who the Lord is) and they project who they are on the Lord which results in their view on all things..So when these people tell you that the Lord will not deliver you, they are reading to you out of their own playbook, not the Lord's. These people tell you that Christians "need" to go through part or all of the tribulation. Maybe they do need the tribulation and perhaps they will get it!!! but the vast vast majority of the Church which are all those who have died "in Christ" up through this very day did NOT go through the tribulation and neither will we.

I defy anyone to explain to me how exactly it is that all the generations of believers who have died "in Christ" up to and including this very day get excluded from the tribulation yet we who survive through tomorrow somehow "need it." That idea is ridiculous, and it is utterly indefensible from a biblical standpoint.

Back to our worldview now....This writer has seen faithfulness, protection and deliverance for himself and his family over and over and over again for decades. Is it so far fetched to expect that this writer expects to see faithfulness, protection and deliverance for himself his family and all the brothers in the future? Of all the rapture views, which one most closely aligns with a Lord and a servant whose relationship has been defined by provision, protection and deliverance? The pre-tribulation rapture is the only shoe that fits. Not that all this is proof of when the rapture will happen, we have plenty of that proof posted along the right side of the blog-using the bible to explain the bible. We are up to 20+ articles now and going strong with more proof on the way.

Which brings us to Nibiru. When we look up what will we see? Space and clouds. One day the Lord will descend to those clouds to call us up. Space hold many things. What's going on in space these days? Well, lots of things, the space program has been cancelled, the US govt has been putting infrared satellites up as fast as the can and google and other space viewing programs have been hiding stuff so we cant see whats up there.

We have proven here that the Lord judges the creation through the creation. Examples the flood of Noah's day and fire of Lot's day. We know that the book of Revelation has yet to be fulfilled but one day it will be fulfilled to the letter. We know that famine and fire and massive earthquakes and the sea raging and mens hearts failing them for fear of whats coming on the earth are all events coming someday to this earth.

What in the creation would cause massive earth shattering earthquakes and the sea to roar and foam and stuff to fall from the sky that would poison a third of the earths water (wormwood) etc? What would do that kind of thing? Something like Nibiru would. The signs that this thing is coming are all around us. What does that mean? It means judgement through creation by the Creator is coming. What does that mean? This particular judgement appears to be so severe that it could only be the tribulation/time of Jacob's trouble. What does that mean? It means that our redemption draweth nigh? What does that mean? It means that we as servants better be watching and ready to meet Jesus Christ today and every day forward.....

Those who are not watching and ready to meet Jesus Christ today are fools, thiefs, liars and murderers if they call themselves believers and teach others not to look for the Lord's return today (pre-wrath/post-trib teachers). Why are the post-trib and pre-wrath teachers and preachers murders and thieves? They steal your hope, they steal your faith and they are trying to steal your escape which would lead to your murder in the tribulation. See it now?

As you believe, so you receive. If they can steal your faith and hope, then your escape is in serious jeopardy. Will the Lord permit people to escape who do not believe His Word? Will the Lord reward willful disobedience? These pre-wrath and post-trib preachers and teachers know they are supposed to pray for escape and not only do they disobey that command, they teach other people to disobey it as well. What will be their reward for this willful disobedience? Time will tell..PRAY that you may be counted worthy to escape ALL of what's about to happen and stand before the Son of Man (Luke 21:36). Thats a command..its not optional. If you are not praying that prayer and you know the Lord Himself commanded you to do it, well, then you've chosen a dangerous path to walk on.

Those who are not yet believers we should attempt to snatch from the fire as we are led by the Spirit of Jesus. The words of Matt 25 are speaking to us today. Who are the wise virgins and who are the wise servants who employed the talents the master gave to them? The wise virgins and servants better be us. We must keep oil in our lamps, we must employ our talents, we must be ready and watching today more than ever.

These things are what this servant hears the Lord saying today.

The Feast of Trumpets 2011, 13 Days and Counting

13 days left till the Feast of Trumpets 2011...what if the Lord does call us to Himself this month? Will we be found watching and ready? What if ELE-nin and whats following behind it are world destroyers? What if this is the year that the escape and destruction both fall?

Every year, at this time of year, we recognize this time for what it is: special. Only the fall feasts of the Lord are left to fulfill prophetically and the next event on that feast timeline is the feast of trumpets which occurs in 13 days. As a reminder, we are practicing watchfulness and readiness here not predicting anything will happen. As good soldiers we are exercising constantly, doing those things our commander told us to do, that is watching and being ready. Every day of every year we must be doing these things but this time of year we should step our efforts up a notch.

Two things the Lord shared with me today (I believe He did)
1. The watchmen watch in vain unless the Lord watches for them. This one really grabbed my attention. We are watching and ready today right? At least we are trying to do these things. While our focus is watching, something should come to our mind. We have discussed watching through prayer here when we addressed "how do we watch?" The Lord pointed out to me that although yes, we do watch through prayer, to explain it in more detail we are watching through Him or through His eyes. Another way of saying it is, He is watching for us and we are connecting up to Him to see what He sees . Where is the proof of this? Here:

Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.

It has been proven through analyzing the Lord’s Word here that we watch and are ready through prayer and the Word of God. What has the Lord revealed to us above? That our watching and the sight gained from it if you want to look at it that way is a byproduct of our connection with Him.
So, pray and stay in the Word. Why? To stay connected to Him. Why? Because only through our Lord can we do anything we are supposed to do. Again, revolutionary insight? Not hardly, its about as basic and fundamental as it gets but it has to be revealed to us or even when we are staring right at it we dont "get it."

2. Praise Him 7 times a day

Psalm 119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.

Don't get hung up on the number 7 here. The point that I believe the Lord made to me about this keeping His praise in our mouth constantly. We dont necessarily have to do marathon praise and worship sessions. Short and frequent works great too. Let the words come out of your mouth, this is not done silently. Its called the fruit of our lips for a reason. Having praise come out of our mouth constantly appears to be a big deal with the Lord here recently. As judgements and wrath are about to fall, praise and worship should be flowing like a river from our mouths. This has been a constant theme that has been impressed upon me by the Lord now for months. I think He is serious about this.
Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

Eph 5:20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
There are too many places to cite them all here. Pull up your online parallel bible and type in praise or rejoicing or thanks or thanksgiving and see how many hits you get.

Another thing along these lines along a more sober note. This writer has no idea what or when is going to happen. When the tribulation does start and even before it starts many many people are going to die. That's a fact. Look up the book of Revelation for yourself. Without the tribulation just with whats going on in the world today, death is swinging its sickle like never before. Radiation famine, wars you name it and the tribulation hasnt even started. Okay, whats the point? The point is servants of the Lord have reasoned with the Lord in the past. I wont go into more examples than the one Im going to show you now but you can look them up. This has to do with praise from your mouth as a reason you should be able to live to see tomorrow...if you are taking tomorrow for granted you are a fool. This has been impressed upon this writer recently and I take it very seriously. Consider:
Isaiah 38:18 For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

Psalm 30:9 What gain is there in my destruction, in my going down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness?

Psalm 6:5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

You know what thats called ^^^? Thats called reasoning with the Lord for your very life. You know what else thats called? A really really good reason to start audibly with your lips moving praise the Lord constantly.

We should not fear the world but a healthy fear of the Lord is something we need to get a firm grip on. Do a search on "fear of the Lord" and see how many hits you get in the bible. Todays babylonian churchianity will tell you not to fear anything! "Why fear the Lord?" they ask...Thats reason 1,000,001 to avoid todays churchianity like the plague. They will get you eternally killed, not just killed in the flesh.

These things are written to you by the least of the servants of the Lord, a nobody who prays that he will be counted worthy along with you of the escape from all that is coming (luke 21:36). Keep the Lord's praise always in your mouth. Every time you think about it get your lips moving regardless of the time of day or night. Reason with the Lord for your life as the wise men in the bible did. Does the grave praise you Lord? No, but my lips will praise you day and night.... Let this be in the forefont of our minds in the days ahead. Start praising Him right now, don't wait.

PS This writer has reason to praise the Lord. This writer has lost count of all the many miracles and blessings that have come his way. If you are thankful for anything in your life then you have reason to give Him praise. We are not just praising Him because we have to, we are doing it because HE DESERVES OUR PRAISE. He has earned it many times over. Lift it up to Him now, I'm pleading with you as a brother...

The Feast of Trumpets 2011, 20 Days and Counting Part 2

Something occurred to me before to start this series counting down to the Feast of Trumpets 2011. That is, the question what can we do to prepare ourselves for the return of the Lord if He should return for us this year?

That question has been answered in previous posts here and the answer so far is:

1. Be watching-how do we watch? We watch in and through prayer
2. Be ready-how do we make ourselves ready? With the Word of God which is the Gospel which is the good news. See the previous posts in this series for the details behind these statements.

Please remember that this readiness ^^ presupposes the reader is already "in Christ."
How does one make it "in Christ?" The gift of God is by grace and through faith. It is free, but you must remain in Christ to see heaven. John 15 lays out explicitly that we must remain "in Christ" once we have entered "in Christ." The book of Romans lays out the plan of salvation nicely. Google the Romans road to salvation for the how to on this:

What is the Lord looking for? A heart that is ready for change. A heart that is ready for truth. A heart that is finished with sin. The body will have an appetite for sin till the end of our lives but the spirit and heart can override the body. This is what this writer has learned from the Lord.

Again, nowhere in the bible will you see the Lord telling you to join some man made institutional organization commonly known as "churches" in this world to be at peace with Him. Should we fellowship? Yes. Do we need to be institutionalized by a babylonian form of churchianity to fellowship? Absolutely not. This requires the guidance of the Holy Spirit in each of our lives because the details in each of our lives are different.

Now, on to the point of the day to flesh out more of what this writer believes the Lord is looking for from us. We are to be watching and ready. We become ready or as the bible calls it "dressed in readiness" from the book of Luke by the Word of God. All of it. This writer sees things each time the bible is opened that the Lord is looking for in His people. These are not my words, these are His Words that follow:

Psalm 11:7For the LORD is righteous,
he loves justice;
upright men will see his face.

Clues like this are hidden like diamonds all throughout the bible. The once saved always saved doctrine of demons crowd is always asking "do I have to do this to be saved?" and "Are you questioning my salvation?" These people who ask such questions already condemn themselves. Its like a person who sticks a watch in his pocket at a store to see how close to the door he can get without being arrested. What kind of person thinks that way? A person who loves sin...
What they are really asking is how much sin can I get away with and still go to heaven? Again, that line of questioning tells us where that person is coming from and its not a good place to be standing spiritually.

Back to the Lord's Word: upright men will see his face. That is the Word of God and that is part of our readiness. We are the Bride of Christ making ourselves ready through the washing and sanctification of the Word to be a holy people for the Lord.

As I see things in the Word that stick out to me during reading the Word today I'll just place it below:

Psalm 13:6 I will sing to the Lord for he has been good to me.

Psalm 15

LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?

Who may live on your holy hill?

2He whose walk is blameless

and who does what is righteous,

who speaks the truth from his heart

3and has no slander on his tongue,

who does his neighbor no wrong

and casts no slur on his fellowman,

4who despises a vile man

but honors those who fear the LORD,

who keeps his oath

even when it hurts,

5who lends his money without usury

and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things

will never be shaken.

If that is not a recipe for what the Lord wants from us then I don't know what is. Notice what the Lord is looking for in his people. The fact that so many people would question God's own Words here shows us how lost the world really is today. You mean I have to be blameless? You mean I have to be righteous? You mean I have to speak the truth? You mean I have to have no slander on my tongue? etc etc. Who asks such questions? A sinner who loves their sin.

Are we perfect yet? No, but we are working on it. How are we working on it? We are watching for the Lords return and we are staying in the Word of God so we are always dressed in readiness with the gospel of peace which is part of the armor of God. The Lord does expect us to "do" something in our walk with Him. Re-read the parable of the talents. The wicked lazy servant was not condemned for making a little profit, he was condemned for doing NOTHING and earning no profit.

Your "talents" are your talents. I dont know what they are but you and the Lord know. Even if you dont know for sure what they are you can at least guess at them. Decide in faith and prayer what the Lord would have you do with your talents and do something. Do not be the wicked and lazy servant who does nothing and has everything taken away from him...

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

One last note: this writer does not know if the Lord will come back for His people this year, but as an exercise in readiness, this writer is taking the mental attitude that it is a given fact that the Lord will return this year. This is no different from an army preparing for war. You have to train like its real because someday it will be fight like you train so train like its real.

What if the Lord does show up sometime around the Feast of Trumpets this year? Will you be found watching and ready? Will you be counted worthy to escape all thats about to happen and stand before the Son of Man? (Luke 21:36)? I pray that you will be watching and ready and found worthy. If you are reading these words right now then you have been prayed for today. In Jesus name I ask you brothers and sisters to pray for this writer and this writer's family that we too may be found worthy when the Lord arrives.

One more thing on a separate note: dont take my word for anything. Check the bible for yourself. Who am I? I pray that I at least am the least of the brothers who are found "in Christ." Why accept words from the least servant in the kingdom when you can have the Word of the King Himself? That Word is in the bible, go to it, stay in it.

These are the things this writer hears the Lord saying today,
All glory and honor and praise and wealth and splendor and majesty and worship be to the Lamb of God who is forever praised....amen.

grace and peace

The Feast of Trumpets 2011, 20 Days and Counting

No post yesterday so we are down to 20 days. You all see this?

Power restored to many customers after massive outage in Southwest US
Human error blamed for blackout that impacted 5 million people

Right...human error. The very day that the X class flare from the sun begins to reach earth. I'm sure that like everything else with the lame stream media, this was just a coincidence as well, not willful deception...

Two x class flares blew off the sun this past week and we are getting the energy from them now. This solar activity is another classic sign of ELE-nin moving to its closest point with the sun as well as moving its way up to the ecliptic to its position right between the earth and the sun.

Volcanoes, massive hurricanes, record flooding, record tornadoes, earthquakes popping all over the earth faster than we can count them, but nothing to see here right? This kind of 100 year or longer record breaking weather happens all the time! Wait, that doesn't make sense does it? Yet thats what the lamestream media is feeding people day in and day out.

I hope to post later today after spending some time with the Lord,

grace and peace

September 2011-Part 2

As the hour becomes late, more and more denial comes forth about the things we can see with our own eyes happening to this earth. We see and hear all around us "ELE-nin" is nothing! Maybe so, but something...something is causing these major earthquakes and volcano eruptions and are increasing in frequency and intensity daily.

It is irrelevant to this writer what exactly is causing the changes we are seeing around us. Is it ELE-nin? Is it Nibiru? Is it earth crust displacement? Does it matter? NO. What matters is, the changes are taking place, period, end of story. I don't know if you can literally feel in your physical body that everything is not alright. I can feel it. I cant remember the last time that I have really felt good. Most days I feel "good enough" to get out of bed and do what I have to do before my strength is gone and I have to rest again. I try to take care of myself too. I run, I try to somewhat watch what I eat etc. Something is not right. I know for a fact that I am not the only person to feel this way either. I have asked around. I have observed. People all around us feel it, literally and all is not well.

This morning I was reading Rev 3 again and look what the Lord tells us about the Philadelphian church:

Rev 3 These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 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.

Those few sentences are loaded with meaning for us today. The 2 first things to point out to you are 1. The Lord knows you are weak. He knows that we have little strength. Got it? He knows. In spite of our little strength we are hanging on to His Word and His name. 2. We are enduring patiently. Patience by its very definition means not giving up in the face of suffering. We are weak and afflicted on every side but we endure it patiently. This has been a message you have read here for years. We must be ready to leave immediately and we must be patient enough to stay indefinitely. That is easy to understand but not easy to live out day after day.

This brings us to our next point: the wise and foolish virgins. We are talking about patience right? What was the major malfunction of the foolish virgins? They weren't prepared to wait! They did not bring oil for their lamps. They were not prepared to wait for the Bridegroom and when He tarried they ran out of oil and ended up getting left behind with the door slammed in their face.

This writer hopes and prays with all his heart that the Lord will come back for us soon. This writer has little strength. This writer is counting on the Lord day by day for the strength to make it through each day. The Lord knows we are weak, didn't He tell us that in Rev 3? He knows we are weak but He expects us to be patient in the face of our daily suffering. We are watching and ready to go, and we are ready to stay for however long it takes for our Lord to show up for us.

Have you seen the huge lava eruptions from Sakurajima Japan? Have you seen the recent 7.0 earthquake north of New Zealand? Earthquakes and volcanoes going off are signature events heralding the arrival of whatever it is coming at us from space. While the world spews an endless barrage of disinformation at us we KNOW for a fact that there are signs in the sun moon and stars coming. We know that something called wormwood is going to wreak untold havoc on this world. We know that the oceans will be roaring and the nations will be in perplexity. We know that the things coming on this world will cause mens hearts to fail them for fear. All these things are rock solid facts straight from the Word of the Lord.

Do we see the precursors for all these things around us in the world today? Yes. What does that mean? It means that the time of Jacob's trouble is likely near. It means the escape from all rapture is likely near. What happens if the rapture does not happen soon? We keep waiting.

What does the Lord tell us about the rapture?

1 Thess 4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Did you read that? COMFORT one another with these words. Don't you find it interesting that as the hour grows later each and every day so many "christians" have chosen to argue ad nauseum about the rapture, turning it into a reason for verbal war instead of taking it for what it clearly is, a REASON FOR COMFORT. Who said we should be comforted by the truth of the rapture? The Lord Jesus Christ said it. The rapture of the church is to comfort us. Think about it. If the next thing you have to look forward to is the anti-christ showing up and 2 billion people dying, does that comfort you? That's what the "pre-wrath" and "post-trib" folks are telling you is next on the timeline. They have no reason whatsoever to be comforted by the rapture right now, they are bracing for the anti-christ and death. I am sorry if I cannot relate in any way to their thinking.

The Bible is absolutely overflowing with the Lord's own Words to be watching and ready for HIS COMING. We are to be watching and ready for the coming of our Lord Jesus. Please show me in the Lords address to the churches in Rev 2-3 where the Lord tells us to brace ourselves for the anti-christ and the time of Jacob's trouble. Show me if you can, but you cannot show me because ITS NOT THERE. Just like the churches are addressed by name in Rev 2-3 then the Lord does not mention the churches by name again for the rest of the book of Revelation. Did the Lord forget to address the churches by name after Rev 2-3 or is there a reason why they are not mentioned by name after Rev 3? Occams razor, the simplest explanation is the best explanation. The church is not mentioned by name after Rev 3 because we are NOT HERE ANYMORE. Its simple, and its a fact.

We have no need to write 100 page papers to explain why the church is not mentioned by name after Rev 3. The "pre-wrath" and "post-trib" teachers and preachers need to write doctoral dissertations in an attempt to explain away the simple truths in the Bible.

Simple truth: the pre-tribulation rapture of the church is a fact and it is coming.
Simple truth: the Lord told us to be comforted by the truth of the rapture
Simple truth: Noah escaped all the flood of his day by being lifted high above the earth
Simple truth: Lot escaped all the fire and brimstone of his day by physical removal from Sodom
Simple truth: The flood and destruction that is coming will be upon the face of the whole world (Rev 3:10) and we will be kept from it.
Simple truth: There is an escape from all coming for those found worthy of it
Simple truth: The Lord told us to be ready for His coming not the arrival of anti-christ
Simple truth: The Lord told us to be ready for His coming and not to brace ourselves for impact with the time of Jacob's trouble.
Simple truth: Whats coming is called the time of Jacob's trouble not the time of the churches trouble.
Simple truth: The church is called out by name in Rev 2-3 then not mentioned again for the rest of the book of Revelation because we are not on the earth after the "door" is opened in heaven
Simple truth: Doors are used for people to come in and go out. A door is mentioned in Matt 25 with the wise and foolish virgins, in Rev 3 with the church that escapes and in Rev 4 when John tells us what happens after the time of the churches.

This month of September could see the rapture of the church. The feast of trumpets 2011 takes place this month as do major events with the UN, Israel and world economy and many other things. The Lord could come back for us today.

To wrap up this rambling word jumble that is this post today, here are a few things this writer has been reminded of over and over again by the Lord:

1. The parable of the virgins and the parable of the talents in Matt 25. The virgins tell us to be ready to leave but to have oil enough to wait. The talents tell us that while we wait we should do those things the Lord has given us to do. You are weak, got it, so am I. The Lord knows this. The parable of the talents tells us to do something, anything with what we have been given. Don't bury your talent and be accused of being a wicked and lazy servant. What is your talent? You and the Lord know.

2. Praise, rejoice and give thanks. You are weak and tired, so am I. Praise, rejoice and give thanks in spite of how you feel. The Lord has been good to this servant and although I rarely feel good anymore, this servant is very very VERY thankful for all the Lord has done. Praise, rejoice, give thanks.

3. Do the few things that are necessary and let the rest go. Focus on the fundamentals. We have little strength, okay so what should we do with the little strength we have? Do what needs to be done. Focus on the important few things and fade away the trivial many.

4. Pray always. Sometimes I feel bad that I dont get on my knees more to pray and worship. The Lord reminded me however that we are to be praying always, not just when we have quiet time to get on our knees in prayer.

5. Don't beat yourself up when things dont happen perfectly the way you would like them to. Be patient, be persistent. You didn't do what needed to be done yesterday? Fine, today is a new day, do what needs to be done today and forget yesterday.

6. Encourage and comfort one another. The Lord is near so be anxious for nothing. Pray for what you need. Be strong with the strength the Lord gives you today. You are weak, so am I, the Lord knows it, just don't give up.....ever. Be patient. Keep the Word of the Lord's patience we read about in Rev 3. We will be kept from the hour of temptation that is coming on the entire world.

7. If major fearful events take place in the days ahead before the Lord pulls us out of here, count on Him to see you through. Fear nothing except the Lord. The same Lord who has brought you through every trial and tribulation up to the very day will also see you through the days ahead. Pray for what you need, count on the Lord for everything. Be overflowing with thanks and rejoicing always.

This post is a rambling mess, I know. Today's post was supposed to be a mental download, not a Pulitzer prize winning work. These are the things this writer hears the Lord saying today.

Oh yes, one more thing. The places in the Word the Lord is pointing this writer to:

Psalms (all)
Rev 1-5
Luke 17
Luke 21
Mark 13
Matt 24
1 Thess 4

Keep the faith. Trust the Lord. Praise, worship rejoice. Focus on the Lord, hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches today. Grace and peace
