River In China Mysteriously Turns Bloody Red Overnight

article link here.

How many rivers have we counted turning blood red over the past 2 years?  I have lost count, but nothing exists in a vacuum right?  We are in the midst of a blood moon tetrad occurring on our Lord's feast days.  What is so significant about this tetrad?  It is a sign from the Lord that cannot be faked by the imitators here on earth.  We have seen years and years of in your face 'illuminati' signs and symbols that have added up to zero, absolutely nothing.  We know what they want to do, we know they temporarily control the levers of power in this world, but so what?  The Lord is still sitting on His throne in heaven, and He has sent us unmistakable signs in the heavens.

Just look at what has happened since the first bloon moon of the tetrad.  If you knew nothing else, the appearance of ISIS in the middle east along with war in Israel (gaza/Hamas) and war brewing with Russia.and the United States over:  Syria, Ukraine, The new BRICs bank setup this past week and a number of other issues should have your attention.

Each and every one of these blood moons should have our full attention.  The events that have followed the first blood moon have been impressive but it is the fall feasts and fall blood moons that should have us particularly watchful.  When was the largest terrorist attack on American soil?  Sept 11.  When did the stock market plummet in 2008?  Sept 20.  We have not spoken recently about the cyclic patterns of very large earthquakes but when have they occurred  up through this very year?  Spring (March-April) and fall (Sept-Oct).

As this article also proves, we have seen a pattern of blood red rivers showing up across the world in Holland, Beirut, China etc.  We have blood moons, blood red rivers, gee do you think Someone (look up) is trying to tell us something?

To the carnal person all of this is useless nonsense but to those who have the Spirit they are neon signs that advertise approaching danger.  Blood moons, and blood red rivers have been given as signs for a reason.  What does this world have in store for itself?

Rev 6:8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the living creatures of the earth.

A fourth part is one quarter or 25%.  In 2012 there were around 7 billion people on the earth.  So what is 7 billion times 25%?  Thats 1.75 billion people dead, and that is just the opening salvo of what is to come.

 Blood moons, and blood red rivers have been given as signs and yet most people are asleep.  They are complacent and believe everything will go on as it always has.  This calls for patience.  The signs are everywhere and increasing.  For example, remember comet Elenin, and ISON, the space rock that hit Chelablyinsk Russia etc and in general the space rock threat that has been staring us down for years?  It has not been followed here but guess what just happened in the recent past?  Mars was just smacked really hard.  So what?  It could have been us....Earth will have its turn, but what happened to Mars is also a warning.  What do we know without speculation?  This will happen:

Rev 8
King James 2000
The Seventh Seal
1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2And I saw the seven angels who stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire from the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
The First Trumpet Sounded
7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
The Second Trumpet Sounded
8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
The Third Trumpet Sounded
10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Notice with me that these trumpets all "fall down" from the sky.  Also notice the second trumpet, what happens?  Something that looks like a great burning mountain falls into the sea, then what happens? 
"and the third part of the sea became blood;"
Blood moons, blood red rivers and a third of the sea will become blood....
What is the take away from all this brother D?
These signs are for us, not the wicked.  The Lord is going to hammer this earth in every way imaginable and yet people, the wicked will not repent.  Proof?
18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, with heads, and with them they do hurt.
20And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, and silver, and bronze, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

If the wicked will be pummeled and still not repent, who are the signs for?  The believers.  We see what is happening today (blood moons and blood rivers) and we know what is coming (the book of Revelation).  These signs are for us to encourage and to warn.  Unless a person is spiritually dead, the hairs on the back of their neck should be standing up at the signs that have already been presented to us warning of what is still to come.
Should we be afraid?  Yes and no.  We should have no worldly fear but we should greatly have the fear of God within us.  Those who say they do not fear the Lord are very foolish.  Do I fear the Lord?  You bet I do.  I love Him and I fear Him.  I fear the consequences of sin and wickedness, anyone who does not is foolish.
What should we do in light of all these signs?  The only refuge is being "in Christ."  Our God is a real fortress and a real refuge from the storm.  Noah and Lot understood this perfectly.  What is coming will come upon all those on the face of the whole earth.  What is coming is a spiritual storm that requires spiritual protection and guidance.  Both of these are abundantly provided and available through the Spirit of Christ Jesus our Lord.
done for today.

Confirming The Escape From All

I will just leave out the word rapture so there is no argument whatsoever about what we are talking about.  What has the Lord told us to do and promised us?

He told us to pray for this:

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on 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.”

Now, we know there are many in the world who tell us there is no escape and we should not pray for it.  They directly contradict the Lord's own command on and promise.  We recently saw confirmation that the Lord will keep His Word to keep our foot from being snared and now we confirm it from a different angle.

Those who argue against the Lord's Word in Luke 21:34-36 tell us that somehow we deserve or 'need' to go through the snare, and the trials and tribulation stored up in the days to come.  The problem is, for every reason they give there is a counter reason what this will not happen.  Take this for example:

Prov 11:8The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked comes in his stead.

This is the Word of the Lord ^^ here.  Not my opinion or speculation.  So let me ask a simple question.  The elders seated in heaven who are redeemed and rewarded men (Rev 4.4) from every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; (Rev 5:9).

Did they escape all that was about to happen in the book of Revelation?  We see these redeemed and rewarded men in heaven from every tongue tribe and nation before any of the seals have been opened, did they escape all?  They most certainly did.  Were they 'delivered out of trouble' and the wicked left knee deep in it instead?  Yes.

Some would say "ok but that is just the 24 elders, not the rest of us."  They fail to solve the math problem presented in in Rev 5.9.  Math problem?  Yea, let's do some simple addition:

How many kindreds are there on earth right now?
How many different languages are there on earth right now?
How many different peoples are there on earth right now?
How many different nations are there on earth right now?

Go ahead and add up whatever numbers you get from the questions above and you tell me if the answer is greater than 24......

As a final nail in the coffin of the arguments we hear, when we read the Words of the Lord to the churches in Rev 2-3, do we see any language whatsoever of the righteous 'needing' to perfect their righteousness or having to be in the tribulation to 'witness to the wicked/lost' or any of the other litany of reasons given by the deniers? No, we don't see anything remotely close to that.  What we do read is there is a church that will be kept from the hour of trial, and its the same church that sees an open door, and that same open door is seen in Rev 4.1 and that door is in heaven which proves being kept is not on earth, and further proof of not being kept on earth is a number of redeemed men in heaven from every kindred, language, people and nation in Rev 5 before any of the seals are opened.

We don't have to be creative, we just have to read the Word like a 4th grader would, simple and straightforward.  Escape all, open door in heaven, redeemed and rewarded men in heaven, then all hell breaks loose.

Prov 11:8The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked comes in his stead.

^^^^^Amen ^^^^^^

Rewards II

Yesterday's post described me asking the Lord to fill me up (my soul) and Him doing so.  How did He do it, and why so quickly?  This morning I stumbled face first into this:

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that
you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

What did I ask the Lord to do?  Fill me up.  What does the Word say?

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace"

So the Lord Himself tells us He wants to do such a thing.  When we pray according to the Lord's own will and Word, answers are certainly forthcoming.

So the Lord gave me a small taste of understanding what He means when He is talking about our rewards.  What is the effect of doing this?  Again according to His own Word above:

 "so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

He wants us overflowing with hope.  What does overflowing mean?  It means filled up to the top and running over the side with the overflow.  That is alot of hope right?  He calls Himself the God of hope up there.  He wants us overflowing with it.  He causes us to overflow with hope by filling us with joy and peace.

I asked yesterday and I received.  Is there anything special about me?  No.  What does the Word say?

Matt 7.7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

^^ This is meant for all of us.  This writer means to encourage you today to do what we were told to do in our need.  Ask, seek, knock and continue to do it.  Why should we do this?  The Lord explains it for us:

 9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

The Lord has told me to 1. be a man who walks with God and 2. Do whatever good your hands find to do.

The good these hands find to do today is to share my testimony with you that our God is good and His Word can be trusted.  Hang onto it and trust Him to the very end and you will not be disappointed.  Sometimes we have to wait for our answers sometimes we are answered almost immediately.  If there is something that really encourages this brother it is that we have such a great God hearing and answering our prayers.  When an all powerful all knowing God is our provider what is it that is out of reach for us?  What does the Word say?

Mark 11.23 "Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

He said it ^^, He meant it, and this brother can testify that it is the truth.  This nobody has seen it happen over and over again, not because this brother is special but as a testimony to you.

Keep the faith, grace and peace.


Tuesday, July 15, 2014


I pray that the Lord will allow me to adequately explain what He impressed upon me this morning.  I asked Him to fill and satisfy my soul this morning.  About the time I was driving to work He answered me.  What He answered me with is along these lines:

1 Cor 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

As He was impressing upon me what is in store for us, I understood it more than in just words, I kind of felt it/understood it if you know what I mean.  It was as if He allowed me to peek behind the door of what is in store for us without actually peeking behind the door.

We know that we are to be kings and priests in our Lord's service but I do not think we are thinking big enough.

Rev 1.6 4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

There is a reason satan and his servants hate us so much.  What the Lord has in store for us goes beyond what words can describe.  The Lord has many times impressed this thought upon my mind:  if satan has been granted rulership and authority over this entire world, how much more will those who love our Father be granted?  Think about it.  Whatever our hated enemy has been granted, how much more will our Lord grant to those who love Him.

In more simple terms, we should think in terms of worlds, not a mansion or a city.  We serve an infinite God.  Is anything too difficult for Him?  How many of us will actually be kings over entire world(s) (plural)?

Ok brother D, so what?  So when we understand how high the stakes are and what we are fighting for here it changes the perspective on everything (for me at least).  What if the Lord told you that you are being tested and evaluated here for your fitness to rule an entire world like this one?  Let me be clear first, primary is our love and faithfulness toward our Creator.  An outward extension of that is our fitness to do other things (like be a king or priest).  He is always primary.  That said we are talking about rewards and what we are fighting for here on this earth.

Put things in perspective.  If after all the striving and all the battles and all the scars and hurt and striving the Lord was to tell you "well done good and faithful servant, here is the world you will rule over for me,"  what would your reaction be?  All the things the people of this world strive and lust after are absolute peanuts compared with what is on the table prepared for us.  We just have to cross the finish line.  We have to make it through that narrow road and small gate that leads to life (Matt 7:13-14).

When you put what is coming into perspective with what we are dealing with now here on this earth, everything makes sense.  What is 70 or 80 years worth of battle on this earth when it is compared to an eternity in paradise?  This place is a training ground.  This short life we live is 'basic training' if I can put it in military terms for all eternity.  The Lord sees things differently than we do:

"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher
than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. 

He sees and knows from an eternal perspective.  He is not as shortsighted as we are.  Is anything written here a real 'revelation.'  No, He has already told us the same things this nobody is writing to you right now, but do we believe Him.  I will tell you that what He impressed upon my spirit this morning made His Word in the area of our rewards come alive.  I really really "got it" and I could barely contain myself at the thought of it.

Don't believe a word I have written but do look for yourself at what the Lord has told us He is going to do.  It is all right there in His Word and He meant every letter of it.  There is a reason and a reward at the end of this great battle being fought all around us and in us.  The stakes are much higher than the peanuts the people of this world fight over.  The stakes are eternal life, glory forever and the ruling and reigning with Christ over worlds....Can you find in the Bible where our Lord said we would rule over world(s)?  No?  So forget what brother D thinks the Lord said and read what the Lord actually did say.  He did say we would be kings and priests and He said this:

1 Cor 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

It has not even entered the heart of man how great the things are that our Lord has prepared for us.  Let your imagination run wild with that for a few minutes and you will start to barely scratch the surface of what the Lord impressed upon this servant this morning.  These thoughts I share with you as a means of encouragement to keep the faith, stay in the fight and never give up.  Truly we serve a great GREAT God.

grace and peace

The Lord's 'Hidden' Confirmation of His Own Word

We serve a truly awesome God.  Here is a bit of encouragement today and some confirmation of the Lord's Word.  The Word interprets and confirms itself:

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be weighed down with carousing, 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 therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

^^These things that shall come to pass will be a 'snare' for all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.

In other words its going to be something bad, and it will affect everybody on the face of this earth.  So much for those explanations people use to explain away the escape.  They say we will all be 'kept' somewhere here on earth while the snare is in progress but what does the Word say?  ALL those on the face of the whole earth...does not leave much room for exclusions does it?

Now for a confirmation Word that is hidden in plain sight:

Prov 3:25Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the ruin from the wicked, when it comes.
26For the LORD shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being snared.

How grand.  These things that shall come to pass will mean ruin for the wicked, they shall be a snare for them but what does it say about us?  The Lord shall keep our foot from being snared.  How, can this happen if the snare will affect "everyone on the face of the whole earth?"  Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things.

There is an escape coming from all of these things and we are told to pray for it.  If everyone on the face of the whole earth will be snared, where could this escape be to?  Perhaps that door open in Rev 4.1 is a clue.  Why is the door open?  What are doors used for?  What is a door?  Do we have to be so silly with the questions?  Yes, because those who would pervert the Word would tell us that doors don't do what doors do, and all doesn't really mean all, and escape doesn't really mean escape etc etc.  Then they will write thousand page e-books and dissertations to tell us what these single, simple words really mean...

Back to where we were at, who are these redeemed and rewarded men in Rev 5 and how did they get there before any of the seals have been opened in Rev 6?

Rev 5:9And they sang a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10And have made us unto our God a kingdom and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

These are vexing problems for the deniers of the simple Words written to us by our Lord.  We have simple explanations that need no verbal acrobatics to achieve.  There is an open door in Rev 3:8 and a promise to be kept from the hour of temptation in Rev 3:10.  Where is the open door?  In heaven as we see clearly in Rev 4:1.  In Rev 5:9 we see redeemed men in heaven from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation;.

How much more clear or concise or straightforward could it get?
What do we know for sure that is absolutely not open to debate?

There are redeemed and rewarded (Rev 4.4) men in heaven before anything in Rev 6 takes place.

We know there are doors open in heaven in Rev 3 and 4.

We know there is an escape from all promised in Luke 21 and a promise to be kept from the hour of temptation in Rev 3 and the promise that our foot would not be snared in Prov 3:26 which ties into and confirms the promise in Luke 21:35.

These are absolute rock solid facts from the Word of God that need no interpretation, they stand on their own merit.  So what?  So hope in the Lord.  Rejoice in the Lord.  Our foot shall not be caught in the snare that is coming for the wicked.  An escape from all is coming from all that is about to happen.  Doors will be opened in heaven and redeemed men will be seated around the throne of our God from every nation, tribe and tongue and people BEFORE the events of Rev 6 kick off.

We have much to be thankful for.  All glory and honor and power be to our God the Lord Jesus Christ forever and ever.  Amen.

Escape ALL That Is About To Happen

There is an event coming that 1.  is like a trap and 2. will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on 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.”

Now let us reason together very carefully.  Consider what our Lord tells us above.  This trap will come on all those who live where? On the face of the earth.

Many people have a problem interpreting this simple word "all."  What does all mean?  It means everyone, without exception.  The Lord goes on to specifically clarify what He meant by "all."  He tells us all includes everyone who lives where?  On the face of the whole earth.  So for those who argue that somehow Christians will not escape all that is about to happen, but they will be kept somewhere on the earth out of harms way, they have a major problem with the Word of the Lord.  ALL those on the face of the earth will be affected.

See, there is an escape and place of refuge, but by the Lord's own definition it is not on the face of this earth...

We know that ^^ because the Lord told us that all those on the face of the whole earth will be affected by it.  After the Lord specifically identifies who will be affected (all those on the face of the whole earth), He tells us what?  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.”

Watch and pray that we may be able to do what?  Escape all that is about to happen.  There is that pesky Word "all" again.  What does "all" mean?  If people do not understand what a 3 lettered Word in the promise means how can they understand the full promise?  It is a simple question that terribly vexes those who argue against the escape from all promised to those who believe.

There is most certainly an escape coming.  When exactly only the Lord knows, but we do know this: we were commanded by the Lord God to pray for this escape.  How many people do we know that not only do not pray for this escape but teach others not to as well because of their man made doctrines?  Who told us there would be an escape from all?  The Lord God did, period.  Who told us, ordered us, commanded us to pray for this escape?  The Lord our God did.  Those who preach and teach otherwise do so at their own peril.

grace and peace

2014: Blood Moon Number 1

It is said that blood moons are a bad sign for Israel.  A historical correlation between these lunar tetrads and the Jews are proof enough that when the tetrads show up Israel should be looking over its shoulder.  So what?  That is old news right?  Here is the new news right in front of our faces:

1st blood moon of the tetrad occurred in mid-April this year.  45 days later the first news stories began appearing about ISIS in the middle east.  Just recently ISIS claimed that they have established a caliphate and intend to conquer the entire middle east.  ISIS is a group of highly trained, well funded and well armed radicals.  They have been capturing U.S. equipment to include Bradley fighting vehicles and Blackhawk helicopters.

Those who watched the first blood moon pass with a yawn have not been watching close enough. Only time will tell how ISIS will develop in the middle east but it almost surely spells the involvement of the sword and Israel.

Here is one example from history that correlates with the passing of these blood moons:

1 blood moon as passed, 3 are yet to come.  If each blood moon ends in the appearance of groups like ISIS the world should shudder....
