Heavy Weight Boxer Tyson Fury With Words of Wisdom

Our Lord Jesus Christ is all that matters, period.  He is at the center of everything, in Him alone do all things hold together:

Col 1:17  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

^^ This is it.  This is why America will never be great again regardless of who is president unless the people put Jesus Christ back at the center of their personal lives.  The reason behind the decline of America and Europe is their rejection of Jesus Christ.  Many still confess Him with their mouths but their hearts are far from Him.  If we return to our Lord with our whole heart, mind and spirit perhaps that will buy us more time.  If we do not things will continue to go from bad to worse.  Its really that simple.

May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ and our Father in heaven be upon brother Fury and with all of you.

Make America Great Again?

One of Donald Trump's slogans is "make America great again."  He makes many statements that sound persuasive but I can make you an iron clad guarantee.  Neither Donald Trump, nor any of the other politicians will move America one inch closer toward former greatness without a restoration of the Lord God of the Bible taking center stage in hearts of Americans first.  This goes for every other country and politician and people in the world as well.

The western world is circling the drain of history.  All of the things the western world once held dear are gone or in the process of leaving.  It is fascinating to watch and wonder when the people will ponder, "why is this happening?"  Some people do wonder this but they accept the answers the world gives them through their worldly pastors and worldly priests and things continue to go from bad to worse.  The thought does not occur to them that what they are being told, and what they have been told from the beginning is a lie.  The pastors today encourage the people to "get out and vote for change" just like they have every 4 years for years without end and the churches, the cities and the nations continue to die.  At what point do the people say to themselves "this is not working" and look for answers somewhere else?

The churches are dead, therefore the cities are dead.  The cities are dead therefore the nations are dead and dying.  What do I mean dead?  No presence of the Lord and no power of the Lord.  The people show up every week on Wednesday and Sunday to play church.  They never stop to ask themselves "is this it?  Is this all there is?"  The Lord never shows up.  They do not experience His presence, they do not experience His power but they continue to play the same religious games until they are old and grey then they themselves die and its all over.  People have a tolerance for death that is remarkable.

What will it take to turn things around?  On a large scale this is almost impossible, but on a small scale people can say "enough is enough" with tolerating religious games.  What is the definition of insanity?  Doing the same  things over and over yet expecting a different result each time.  People play church this way.  Enough.  It starts inside each one of us.  We make it our mission to find the Lord our God, His presence and His power.  Period.  It must be a personal quest, nobody else it going to help you do it in fact most people will think you have lost it when you reject this worlds religious systems to find the living God.

Here it is right here:

Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

People like to play at church and play the religious game but they really dont want Him to enough to seek Him with all their heart.  And I am no ones judge in this matter, it is the Lord Himself who judges each of our hearts.  It is the all powerful all knowing God of Creation who is examining each of our hearts every minute of every day to determine its attitude toward Him and whether we are worthy of His presence and power.

This is not a thing to be treated lightly but neither are the death in the churches, cities and nations around us.  We cannot play around with the Lord.  He demands obedience.  He demands faith and faithfulness.   He demands repentance and 100% effort to shed the sin that hounds us in this world until we leave this place.  In short He expects us to sell out for Him.  What that means, He must teach you do not assume you know what that means either.

There will be no greatness returning at any level in this nation or any nation until the Lord God Jehovah, YAHWEH our Father and His Son our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit are put at the very center of everything.  Life flows from the inside out.  He must be at the center of the inside, THEN we might see some greatness return.  Until that happens discount everything you hear from this presidential hopefuls as pipe-dreams.

A God of Perfect Timing

"The legend" as he is known, Martin Armstrong posted an article today speculating that current events (the death of cash) is pointing to the new world currency (electronic) by 2018-2020.  What is amazing about this?  We are in a Jubilee year this year (fall of 2015-fall of 2016).  The fall of this year 2016 begins a new "seven" Shemitah cycle.  So lets lay this out for examination.  We know the mark of the beast system is implemented sometime after midpoint of the tribulation, lets see how current events match up.

A new "seven" begins fall of 2016:

Year 1: fall of 2016-fall of 2017
Year 2: fall of 2017-fall of 2018
Year 3: fall of 2019-fall of 2020
Year 4: fall of 2020-fall of 2021

Am I predicting anything?  Absolutely not.  I am sitting here a passive observer listening to legendary financial experts like Martin Armstrong predict a time-frame that matches up exactly with the season in time we would expect the mark of the beast system to stand up.  As Mr Armstrong notes, the current push to eliminate the 500 euro note and the 100 dollar bill are steps toward an economic totalitarian state.

We serve a God of perfect timing.  In His wisdom He chose to have brother Cahn write a book about the Shemitah cycle that received worldwide attention.  In His wisdom He drew brother Mark Blitz's attention to the blood moon cycle on feast days.  He gave us these signs and signals so we can be fully aware of the season we find ourselves in.

The Lord has proven He can delay times and seasons as He did with every previous anti-Christ and time frame.  One day, He will delay no more.  We have to take every season seriously because we do not know if the one we are in will be "the one."  The Lord told us He has an unannounced, unexpected return to this earth planned that we are to watch for.

 Mark 13
32“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alerte ! 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 their 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!’ ”

What did He tell us to do?  Repetitively: Watch!.  What are we watching for?  For Him, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  His instructions are not complex or difficult to understand so let us do what we were told to do:  Watch for His return.  All the other pieces are falling into place before our eyes perhaps this piece falls into place soon too.

Revived Babylon, Not Revived Rome

The evidence is overwhelming yet many persist in error on this topic.  I wonder if everyone will have to be living under the global caliphate and speaking arabic before they accept there will be no revived Rome?

There is more evidence for this than I have time to write this morning but lets start with the obvious:

1.  Is the west ascending or in decline?  It is in decline, the East is ascending.  Germany, France, Britain, the United States are all in terminal decline.  The west is being overrun by Islamic hordes.  There is no debate on this, this is a fact.  It is a state sponsored, state protected invasion of the west.  Have you seen who the latest candidate for mayor is for London?  Read here.  <--does like="" look="" p="" revived="" rome="" that="" to="" you="">
2.  Lets forget the facts the world is presenting us today of a western (Roman) world in decline.  What does the Bible say? 

Daniel 9:26 says, The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.”

Why do people incorrectly assume it will be revived Rome that takes over the world?  They read Dan 9:26 superficially and discard everything else the Bible has to say about the end time kingdom and the anti-Christ.  Were most soldiers in the Roman army from Rome?  No, the vast majority of "Roman" soldiers were from everywhere else but Rome, they were conscripted from every corner of the empire.  According to Josephus, which part of the empire did the "Roman" troops come from that destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.?  SYRIA.  They were Syrians.

Not enough proof, no problem.  If we cannot trust Josephus perhaps we can trust the Lord our God to specify for us:

Isa 10:12When the Lord has finished all his work against Mount Zion and Jerusalem, he will say, “I will punish the king of Assyria for the willful pride of his heart and the haughty look in his eyes

The Word of the Lord tells us the anti-Christ will be called the Assyrian.  Does that sound Roman to you?  No it does not.  The Word of the Lord tells us in Revelation the future system/kingdom will be called Babylon:

Rev 18:2With a mighty voice he shouted:
“ ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’a
She has become a dwelling for demons

Does that ^^ sound Roman to you?  No it does not.

Who did the Lord use to punish a backslidden and apostate Israel in the past?  The Assyrian, the Babylonian.  Who will the Lord use, once again to punish Israel?  The Assyrian, and Babylon.

Proof?  Sure, the Bible is full of it but we can start here:  Rev 18, Isaiah 10, Isaiah 13, Jeremiah 50-51.  The Word of the Lord says it, events in this world are screaming it and yet many people still hold onto the fiction of a revived Rome.  Rome is the old order, Babylon is the new order.  Don't take my word for it what does the Lord say?  What is happening around the world right now before your very eyes?  Europe is being invaded by people speaking Arabic, not Latin, nor Italian nor any other western language.....

 Was it common for ancient Rome to behead those it opposed?  No it was not, crucifixion yes, beheading no.  Was/is it common for the Islamic to behead those it opposes?  That is their preferred method of killing.  And what does the Word of the Lord say?

Rev 20:4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The evidence in both the Word of God and the world around us is overwhelming.  It will be a revived Babylon not a revived Rome that exercises dominion and authority in the last days before our Lord comes back to permanently snatch it out of their hands.

Rev 13:5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months.

Why is this important?  Because too many people are still asleep mistakenly looking for something that will never arrive.  Meanwhile the invading forces of what will be the last earthly empire/kingdom is taking shape before our very eyes.  Time is short, thats the point and why this is important.  We must treat each day as if it were a gift from our Lord in short supply and not something to be taken for granted.

Proclaim My Praise

Isaiah 43: 20The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.

Don't miss out on this one, read to the end.  ^^This is more important than current events.  This is how we transform the landscape around us.  This is how we transform our own lives.  What is brother d talking about?  Praising Him.  What's the big deal?  The big deal is the misery, and the depression, and the frustration, and the despair the Lord's own people bring on themselves through complaining, through failure to give thanks, and taking too many things for granted.

We already have the enemy, the world and the flesh waging war on us, then we pile onto that with our own actions.  The self inflicted wounds have to stop.  Instead of complaining, whining and moaning, we must, sometimes even in spite of ourselves, in spite of our feelings we must praise Him.  People miss out on this one and this is perhaps one of the biggest topics, the biggest forces for change in our lives because people do not realize how big it really is.

Why do we praise Him?  1.  He is Almighty God, all knowing, all powerful and there is no other 'god'  like Him, period.  There is no need to add anything to number one but we will add on here. 2.  Have you ever wondered what you are doing on this earth?  What is your purpose in life?  What were you supposed to do?  Look no further than this, you don't have to guess He is telling you:

21the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.

This ^^ is a job.  This ^^ is a purpose.  And.....this ^^ is a bulldozer.  Say what?  Here is what so many people miss out on

Psalm 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

He, our God, inhabits the praises of His people.  How is that a bulldozer?  When the presence and the power of our God shows up, problems, obstacles, worries begin to get bulldozed out of your life as a secondary measure of Him showing up.  Another way of looking at this is when darkness seems to be making in-roads in your life, the way to combat it is to have a floodlight show up and drive the darkness back

John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Again, I cannot emphasize this enough.  We must praise Him, thank Him, worship Him.  There is nothing like the presence and the power of Almighty God (our Lord) literally showing up in your situation and the way that happens is you open your mouth and start to praise Him and give Him thanks.

People whine, moan, complain and grumble against the Lord then ask "why doesn't the Lord answer my prayers?"

Numbers 14:29  In this wilderness your bodies will fall--every one of you twenty years old or more
who was counted in the census and who has grumbled against me.

Recognize here that He is talking to His people, not the heathen, not the atheist.  People can whine, moan, complain and grumble their way through their own personal walk with the Lord, but I do not recommend it.  What we need is His presence and His power to show up in our daily lives.  We do not summon the Lord, but He told us He would show up in our praise, or rather He inhabits our praise.  So if we want His presence and power we need to liberally apply praise, worship and thanksgiving.  And no, it does not matter how we 'feel' about it.  Our 'feelings' are traitors.  We don't 'feel like' getting up in the morning, working out, working, praising, praying, reaching out, exerting ourselves in any way for others etc.  What happens to those who follow and give in to 'feeling?'  Their lives are laid waste.  No thanks.

What we are talking about here is the mechanism through which people can transform their lives, through their walk with the Lord, through praise.  In the face of problems, weariness, hopelessness, despair, attacks from the enemy, this world and our own flesh we PRAISE HIM ANYWAY. Then we sit back and watch what happens.  This by the way is what we were created to do.  When we do what we were made to do, good things happen.  When we blow off, take for granted and in general do not go what we were created to do, bad things happen (and continue to happen).  We all have trials, we all have tribulation in this world the question is not "why did this happen?"  The question is "how am I going to respond to it?"

This writer is too weak, too unintelligent and too inconsequential in this world to bring weak weapons to bear on the problems of life.  This writer (and I suspect you too) need to bring to bear sledgehammer answers to the problems we face so we can actually move them.  The presence and power of our God showing up in our lives through praise, worship and thanksgiving is such a sledgehammer response.  Through our praise we bring consuming fire and everlasting burning to our problems:

Isaiah 33:14  The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: "Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?"


All of this ^^ was written from a completely selfish point of view.  It was written from the point of view of what the Lord's power and presence will do for us when it shows up.  What was not written is all the things the Lord has done for us.  This writer has been through thin times and thick and I have always through up and down had some kind of food on my table (even if it was saltines and hot sauce), some kind of roof over my head (even if it was the roof of my car) and some kind of clothes on my back.  This writer has seen multiple outright miracles performed in his own life and in the lives of others.  Our God deserves our praise.  My testimony is this:  my God has been good to me.  I will yet praise Him for all that He has done.

This nobody, your brother asks you to join in declaring the praises of the Lord our God who moves mountains, parts the seas, and meets our every need according to His riches and glory.  Do it because it is in your best interest to do it, and do it because He so richly deserves us to do it.

May the grace and peace of our Father in heaven and our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and upon you.
