Calamity and Hope

For the past 6 months or so the Lord has guided my mind down a new path.  If anyone has been reading this blog for awhile they know that it once was filled with nothing but warnings.  Those warnings are no less important today but there is less need to actually warn because the events that used to be on the horizon are now staring us right in the face.

While it is true that many are still unaware of the destruction waiting for them around the corner, those of us who have been watching understand that any day everything can change.  This leads us to today.  This world, is faced with a coming economic calamity that is nothing less than an apocalypse.  No, we have not seen it yet and the masses are still living in blissful ignorance as the stock markets hit new highs every day while (among other things) the GDP of the United States is expected to hit an all time low.  This world is living on borrowed time.

So what?  So, the warning tone left this blog some time ago, maybe years ago and a subtle change has taken its place.  The Lord has shifted the tone to encouragement and hope.  Here is what the Lord impressed upon me today that encompasses both warning and hope:

If there is a word that characterizes this world, and specifically America today it would be arrogance.  This country has actively pursued removal of every hint of the Lord God from every aspect of life.  The courts have removed the ten commandments and there wasn't a whimper, prayer was removed from the schools and you could have heard a pin drop.  Society has chosen man over God every time, everywhere.  Homosexuality and perversion of every kind have replaced godliness.  Arrogance has replaced humility.  Seeking the truth has been replaced with passive acceptance of lies and all of this has happened without a whimper from the masses.

Christians have accepted as fact that the Lord no longer answers prayers, no longer performs miracles, no longer heals, no longer exerts His power.  The devil has ridden roughshod over faith and belief and it has all been accepted without a fight and thats the problem, no fight.  The devil comes to kill, steal and destroy, all the time, every time.  When he cannot kill, steal or destroy he ties, and binds and suppresses to the point that the people of God are literally living like Israel in Egypt but they do not recognize it due to their blindness.

What is going to happen to this arrogant world?

The Lord is coming to set these arrogant and wicked ablaze, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.  This root and branch business is important.  What has happened in this world right up through this very day is, judgement occurs, destruction comes but it is not absolute.  There has remained a root, so life and hope of "normal" returned after judgement.  This time will be different, the root and the branch will be burned.  That means, no hope of restoration of 'business as usual' that this world clings to like a life raft.  No, the systems of this world are in the process of being plucked up by the roots, and this next time things will be different.  The difference will be enough to cause knees to buckle and hearts to fail out of fear.  That is what is coming and it is not far off.

Wait a minute brother D, did you just write that the tone has changed here?  Where's the hope and encouragement?  And the Lord continues in Malachi, pay careful attention here:

Ahh, what a big word "but" is...warning warning warning but for you, it will be different!

This right here ^^ is what the Lord has been laying on my heart for the past 6-7 months.  FREEDOM.  The devil has run roughshod over the people, he has chalked up victory after victory over too many Christians.  But what is coming?  While this world is being hit with a spiritual sledgehammer, with blow after relentless blow, we will burst forth like calves who have been penned into a stall for too long.  We will skip forth, FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE from the hidden slavery that has been imposed on too many of us for too long.

This has been impressed on me for 6-7 months and the Lord just cemented it into my spirit today.  In short He confirmed to me that what has been a gradual theme developing in my mind and spirit are not chance, it is His Spirit speaking to my spirit and now me speaking to you.  

What is around the corner is absolute horror for this world and freedom for us.  What is required of us?  This is very important.  Freedom comes with responsibility.  We must clean up our lives, get rid of any dirty laundry in your life.  Obedience is required, it is not optional.  When the Lord tells us to jump the only question should be "how high?"  Unquestioned obedience is mandatory.  

We have to stand up spiritually and be willing to fight.  Many of us may forget this, we are at war, all the time, every moment.  We are living through a spiritual war and in war there are casualties.  When the devil comes at us with guns blazing, we can either lay down and play dead and become a victim or we can pull out our spiritual weapons and back him the heck up.

Lets let the Word of God explain to us what kind of posture we should take.  Does this sound like preparation to lay down and play dead in front of the devil?:

10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

What does this ^^^ tell you the Lord expects from us?

When we become aware of the cattle pens that the devil has had too many of us living in, many of us will become angry and thats a good thing.  When we realize how much theft and death and destruction the enemy has so subtly introduced into our lives we will become angry and that too is a good thing.  What to do about it?  Armor up.

The testimony of this nobody is the Lord does do miracles for His people today but faith and belief are required in the face of enemy onslaught.  The enemy will fight you for your miracle.  He will fight you for your answer to prayer, your healing, your freedom, your testimony, for every thing.  The very last thing he wants is any of us walking around with a flag overflowing with battle streamers proclaiming the Lord's victorious power in our life.  

We should ask the Lord to double our faith and kindle a fire within us to armor up and through faith, obedience, praise and thanksgiving break out of our 'cattle stall' that the devil has penned us up in for too long.

This is what the Word of the Lord says is coming and it has already started:

Hell on earth for them:

Freedom for us:

The Lord has building up this message in my life for the past 6-7 months and the time to deliver the message is now.

Unsolvable Problems

I believe the Lord gave me something today that I now pass on to you.  It is why the world now faces unsolvable problems.  Look at what the world is facing:  economic collapse, forced immigration/  dilution of western societies to promote their destruction, tension and conflict along every line you can imagine: social, religious, political, you name it.

The problems are bad and getting worse every day.  That is not exactly a newflash right?  What is news is why?

This world has been given problems it cannot solve so mankind will be forced to look outside himself for answers.  The problems this world faces are so big and so bad that they will require supernatural assistance to solve them.

The fact that supernatural assistance will be required to solve this world's problems sets the stage for the end times drama which will force mankind to pick a side.  The grey area that so many people choose to dwell in is quickly fading away.  Now the only answers mankind will be presented are supernatural answers.

One of those supernatural answers will be presented in the form of the anti-christ. Because of what is inside most people (their spiritual composition) they will choose this 'answer.'

Of course, there is another answer and His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

The interesting thing about this end time story is neither side will allow a grey area.  No longer will mankind be allowed to sit on the sidelines and play spiritual indifference.  Everyone will be forced to choose a side.  Proof?

Rev 13:11Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon.12He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching. 14And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. 15He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.
16He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead.17And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.18Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.cHis number is 666.d

Notice with me, that all the earth and its people will be required to worship this beast.  Also notice that everyone-small and great, rich and poor, free and slave must take the mark in order to buy or sell.  I don't see any exclusions in there for blacks or whites or liberals or conservatives, or atheists or muslims.  No, ALL will be required to pick a side.  Glory to God.

This ^^ is where everything we see happening today is headed.

One of the most respected forecasters in the world is telling us the one world currency is just around the corner and the economic crash that begins this fall (October 2015) is the beginning of it.  I have had countless people tell me "yea, my children will have to deal with it but I will never see it."  Really?

This world has been given unsolvable problems so that we will tilt our heads back, and look up to our Creator to give Him thanks, and ask for the help that we need.  That help, that miracle power resides in Christ for us who are in Christ to call upon in our time of need.

This is important to understand as we look at the world around us.  We are witnessing a spiritual war being played out in the sight of men.  The stakes are being increased on a daily basis and we as mere mortals are hopelessly outmatched if we attempt to solve spiritual, supernatural problems with mortal means.  Its just not going to happen.  And those who continue to solve the problems we face with mortal means are doomed to frustration and failure.

To make a long story short, we have a God in heaven who is looking at us and wondering what we are going to decide to do?  When are we going to get on our knees and humble ourselves before Him?  When are we going to start remembering everything He has done for us in the past and give Him thanks for it?  Then when are we going to pray in faith for the miracle working power that is in Christ and waiting for you?

This is the work this nobody has been sent to do today.  Testify to the power that is ready and waiting for each and every one of you in Christ.  Miracles and eye watering displays of spiritual power are a reality right now today for those who believe.  That's a fact.  And so none of us has any excuse not to call on our Lord, let us remember that this power is not reserved for the "somebody" of this world, it is reserved for the "nobody."

1 Cor 1:26Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthyg when God called you. 27Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28God chose things despised by the world,h things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.

The servant who writes to you today is among the most foolish, the most powerless and the most despised.  How much more will the Lord do for you than what has been done for me?  If there is something that is coming through from the Lord loud and clear it is this:  call upon Him and believe.  Through faith and patience you too will see the power and presence of our Lord in your own life.  When the Lord shows up for you, you will truly and deeply understand that your problems have been solved.  His presence and His power are the answer.
