Are You Prepared For The Coming Days?

Are you prepared for the coming days? Is your salvation first on your list of things to do?
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Ro 10: 13

"What Must I Do To Be Saved"?
Rev 18:2, 3 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.2) And he shouted with a mighty voice, "She has fallen! The mighty United States of America is fallen! She has become a resort and dwelling place for demons, a dungeon haunted by every loathsome spirit, and an abode for every filthy and detestable bird, 3) because all nations have shared her passionate acceptance of all different types of religions, the rulers of the earth have joined with her in adopting a religion that does not rely upon God, Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit; and the businessmen of the earth have become rich with the wealth of her excessive luxurry and wantonness."
(Larry Massa, "Armageddon Now", Modern Version, not to take the place of the Bible)

"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." 1 Corinthians 2:9

Be Led By The Holy Spirit

Rich Elliott

And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house: Acts 11:12

My holy people; how many are truly Holy Spirit led in this hour? As I search to and fro across the earth, will I find faith in the hearts of My holy people? Or will I find cleverly devised programs, meant to entertain and to attract interest?

One of the most important parts of My renewing you, My holy people, is to cause you to once again be led by the Holy Spirit, instead of religious leaders, organizations and programs. Do you want to bear fruit that will honor Me? Then be led by Me into the greater works that I have prepared. To be led by Me, you must know the still small voice that the Holy Spirit uses to guide you. To do this, requires time. Time spent listening to Me in prayer. Time spent following Me day by day. Time spent taking what you receive from heaven and implementing it on the earth.

This is what I desire to do in this hour, to renew you, to renew the Church. Be prepared for a sudden shift. Much will change quickly. Those prepared to be led by the Holy Spirit will have no difficulty. Those who are use to following religious programs, leaders and organizations, will find it increasingly difficult to continue doing so.

I will cause a growing restlessness, a disappointment in results and a loss of peace in hearts, in these that neither know how nor are willing to be led by the Holy Spirit. My people, called by My Name – follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men!

It's Time To Grow Up!

Rich Elliott
Nov 23, 2008

For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings [are] against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory. Isaiah 3:8

My holy people; America has done much more than this to receive My wrath. I tell you all plainly, that it is with sorrow and great sadness that I must discipline My children so severely. My heart, My desire to America is that they may return wholeheartedly to Me. So much hangs in the balance concerning America. Do you love Me? Or do you despise Me?

During this period of severe shaking, I will indeed test the hearts of those that are Mine. I will test, refine and renew those whose hearts are set upon My will. I will not fail you, nor forget. I will watch over in when you are under extreme conditions. Some are afraid and will lose their faith when tested. Others will shine brilliantly for My Kingdom and show the way more perfectly.

What is it I require of you? Love Me and your neighbors more than yourself. My holy people; it is time to grow up. Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Be and become an accurate expression of Christ in the earth.

Can A Nation Survive Without God?

By David J. Smith 11/15/08

The United States was founded firmly upon Christian values. Our forefathers would never have compromised their faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! They may not have understood all of the accurate doctrines of the Bible, but they were ablaze with zeal for God. Every institution was firmly based upon the Christian faith.

An assault began by Communism upon Christianity before it became known as the Soviet Union. Russia became a seen enemy to cause compromise of our principles until they could impose their will upon us. This has been an ongoing program since 1921 when Russia was overthrown with that purpose in mind.

Because of the slow infringements upon our Christian beliefs, a case went to the Supreme Court on February 29, 1892. The Supreme Court cited every state and federal document in determining its decision. As a result, in a 9-0 decision the United States was declared a Christian nation. As always, Satan always lifts up a movement to destroy God’s truth.

He manufactured Atheism to be the opposite of belief in God. He also manufactured evolution as a tool to undermine faith in the True God! Satan is clever. He inspires his human agents to smash Christianity to the ground, and make every Christian look and sound like an uneducated fool.

In the 1920s Roger Baldwin founded what became known as the American Civil Liberties Union. It is a Communist front organization whose purpose is to try cases in the courts that will undermine our Christian institutions. ACLU lawyers appear before the Supreme Court more than any other legal organization, except the federal government.

Look at what these ungodly institutions have accomplished: free sex, even among teenagers; illegitimate children; materialism as a nation; striving for gay marriage to become legal – even against the people’s will. Every violation of God’s spiritual law, the Ten Commandments, is being openly violated.

Since this nation has turned its back upon God, do we really expect Him to continue to bless us as in the past?

When we lived the best we knew as a Christian nation, notice the absolute blessings that we received. 1) We had bumper crops that could nearly feed the world; 2) We had the greatest manufacturing base of any nation on earth that produced wealth, and the highest standard of living of any nation – along with Great Britain. 3) The United States never lost a war until the Atheistic system of Communism sent their infiltrators into our government. We became strapped with a Communist United Nations that called the shots for both sides in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. 4) We had the greatest trade surplus in the history of the world until the Marxist Council on Foreign Relations gained control of our government. They wanted to reduce us to a third world country. ARE THEY SUCCEEDING? Our manufacturing base has been sent overseas and left us unemployed. These NEW third world manufacturers are producing cheap products that America’s manufacturers cannot compete with! Result: America has become the largest debtor nation in history!!!

The demise of America is in direct relationship to the Marxist/Socialist/Communist taking over our foreign policy, State Department, money system of fiat (paper) money, key positions of BOTH the Democratic and Republican Parties, etc. To be exact, one of the 45 points that FBI agent W. Cleon Skousen wrote in his book, The Naked Communist, was that the Communists wanted to capture one or both political parties.

Nikita Khruschev said that every fragment of the Socialist program would be passed by Liberals in Congress, and the American people would one day wake up to find they have Communism without knowing how it happened!!!

We have proven in our October 2008 Newswatch Magazine that Barack Hussein Obama cut his teeth on Marxism at a very early age. He has stated publicly that all paths – any religion – lead to the same God!!! That statement is pure Masonic. He also said in an interview, “My Muslim faith.” Incidentally, the top leaders that founded Communism worship Lucifer!!! They are NOT Atheists. Can a nation survive without the True God? NO!!!

“Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14: 34).

“If MY people, which are called by MY name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and SEEK MY FACE, and turn from their wicked ways; THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will HEAL THEIR LAND” (2 Chronicles 7: 14).

What are the odds this nation will turn back to God? What are the chances of our land being healed? Follow Christ, and you can be protected!

Recieve From And Walk With Me

Rich ElliottNov 14, 2008

And when Paul had laid [his] hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. Acts 19:6

My holy people; some things do not change. Yes, some things simply do not change, especially when it comes to the power of the Holy Spirit. I have been speaking about a new baptism of power, but it is really the same baptism that has been available from the start. I want you all to be so full of My Spirit that you can do extraordinary things; things that you would not be able to do on your own. In this account, Paul laid hands on people and extraordinary things happened. Paul could not have done this on his own. Instead, because he was so full of My Spirit, all kind of extraordinary things happened. So it is with you, My holy people. Get full again. Get filled with the baptism of My Spirit. Get so full of My Spirit that things actually happen.

The kind of things that are so wonderful that it goes beyond explaining with your natural mind or your normal thinking. To move beyond where you are now, you must move beyond the experiences of the past. Do not look at the past to fulfill My desires for the future. I am doing a new thing, don’t you know it? Don’t you get it? I am doing something today; something that will require you to be full of My Spirit each new day. An experience from long ago is not what you need. You need to be full of My Spirit at this time.

Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Be ready and willing to receive of My fullness today. Then be ready to walk in the newness of this season, with power from on high. What you have needed all along is power to do what you could never do on your own. Be full of My Spirit today. Receive from Me and walk with Me.

My Words Are A Fountain Of Life

Rich Elliott
Nov 13, 2008

Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. Acts 11:14

My holy people; such are the kind of words that I will give you for others, if you will but ask Me. You have entered an extraordinary season of miraculous activity in the Spirit. For I will do extraordinary things to draw people unto Myself and to save them. My love is extravagant and so are the methods that I use to save all those who are Mine. These things will not just drop into your lap. I am searching throughout the entire earth for those who will seek Me out and find Me and be willing to do what I show them. Such are those who I will give words that will not only convince, but words that will actually save. For I am mighty to save.

Do not let this season pass away before you become a participant in it. Now is the time. Today is the day. Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Receive the words that I give you, for they will be a fountain of life to those that will listen to My Voice.

Down, But Not Out

I was up way past midnight last night doing interviews, making calls to key allies around the country, analyzing voting results from key precincts – searching for any good news I could find.

Alas, once Pennsylvania and Ohio were put in the Obama column, there was no realistic way for Senator McCain to win the election. Senator McCain ran 25 points ahead of President George Bush’s 23% approval rating, but even that fell short of the 50.1% of the vote needed to win.

There are some bright spots, however, and I will provide a more detailed report on the results later today. But I want to share these first thoughts with you right now.

The bottom line is clear and distressing. The country has just elected an untested, far left candidate to the presidency of the United States. From the sanctity of life to our national security, the implications are more than disturbing. And with news of Obama’s victory comes renewed violence in the Middle East. Not even 24-hours after Obama’s election, our Islamofascist enemies are on the move. I’m sure many of you are depressed and dispirited. I understand. I am down too. But I urge you not to spend your time wallowing in defeat.

Some may choose to waste their energy pointing fingers and forming circular firing squads. That’s not what Ronald Reagan did in 1976, and petty vindictiveness does not build up effective coalitions or win elections. We live in a free country. There will be other elections. In the meantime, there will be major battles over life, marriage, war and peace, taxes, judges and a host of things we can’t even anticipate right now.

After 2000 and 2004, the radical Left did not fold up and go away quietly. It immediately redoubled its efforts to defeat us. Leftwing groups organized, raised money, registered voters and, finally, yesterday they succeeded. Will we be as tough and committed as they were? Or will we slink away demoralized and defeated?

I have already made my decision. I intend to fight! I intend to do everything I can to save innocent unborn children and preserve normal marriage. I will defend our country from the Islamofascists and resist the Big Government socialists who want to turn us into Europe. I will defend free enterprise and the entrepreneurs who grow our economy and create jobs. I am counting on not being alone. Can I count on you?

Trust Me

This is a word that the Lord gave me in Sept. but I was not to release until tonight. I believe that this is because of the election results.

There is a whirlwind that would try to pull you down. Look not at the funnel and darkness before you. I will lift you up over it, over the darkness and into My light, My everlasting light. The winds may blow and there will be devastation around you in the coming days but you will not be pulled down. I will take you higher.
I am releasing My mercy upon you. Let Me love you more. Be not afraid! Draw near! I am with you even in the dark and hard times. I am shedding My light on the path before you but it will only show the path for a short distance. You will need to trust Me. Trust Me more than you have ever trusted Me.
I am preparing the way. As you trust Me more I will show you more of what is to come. Though there will be changes, both big and small, they will fulfill My purpose and draw you closer to Me. Trust Me!
Given to Carylann Hartley Sept. 2008

The Powers That Be

"Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God." (Romans 13:1)

This day in our country we will vote for the men and women who will lead us for several years. Their beliefs and philosophies will impact our lives far beyond their specific terms in office. The choice we make is both a rare privilege and an awesome responsibility.

There are three perspectives that would be good for us to review as we prepare to exercise this duty.
First to consider is what this will require of us as subjects of those who are appointed over us. We will be required to:
• Submit to the laws they enact (1 Peter 2:13).

• Pay the taxes they require (Romans 13:6).

• Honor their authority (1 Peter 2:17).

• Pray for them by name (1 Timothy 2:1-3).

• Fear them if we do evil (Romans 13:4).

Then, there is the anticipated behavior of what we should expect them to do. They should:
• Be a terror to evil works (Romans 13:3).

• Exercise the "sword" of judgment against those who do evil (Romans 13:4).

• Promote a "quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty" (1 Timothy 2:2).

• Punish evil and praise good (1 Peter 2:14).

Finally, all who ultimately are placed in authority over men are there by God's appointment. Sometimes the most unassuming are raised up (1 Samuel 2:8) or the evil leader is used to demonstrate God's power (Romans 9:17). We must seek God's will in our choices, but we can be assured that He is in charge (Psalm 11:4).

Come Away With Me

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? Luke 12:24

My holy people; look to the future. Look to My future for you. For the future that you have now is not to be considered in the days ahead, but instead you need to get a fresh focus on what is ahead in My future for you. At this time, seek My Face, get away with Me, come away with Me, to the secret place. There I will show you things that will be ahead and there I will give you wisdom for all that you have need of.
It is necessary to come to Me, to seek Me at this time for the days and weeks and months ahead will be treacherous for some. The future you have now is one of plenty, of wealth, of affluence. You have not really known survival. Some of you will be facing survival in My future for you. Do not fear, but you will need to seek Me and find Me in order for some of you to survive. I will provide, but relationship with Me will simplify what you need to do in order to survive the days, weeks and months ahead. Many jobs will be lost because many things need to be redone in your nation of America. Many jobs will be lost all over the world because of these things that must be redone.
There are many that do not know Me. These will panic and will seemingly have nowhere to turn. These will become an open door for you, a vast harvest field that will be available for the first time in your midst. Do not become self-absorbed, but become a true servant. I care for the birds. I care for all of nature. I will care for you too. You must learn to seek Me and find Me. There in the secret place I will give you My counsel. There in the secret place I will tell you what you need to know. It is time to truly humble yourself before Me. As you do this, I will pour out blessings that many have never known before. This will be My pattern for redoing many things. This is My answer to your most pressing needs. Come to Me … all that are laboring, trying to accomplish everything in your own strength, I will give you the peace and rest and hope that your heart has always cried out for. I will be your place of hope and peace.
Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Be ready for the future that I have planned for you before the foundations of the world were created. Be ready to hear Me and follow Me, like you never have before.

Blinded Minds

"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)

The "god of this world" is none other than Satan, who is also called "the prince of this world" (John 12:31) and the one "which deceiveth the whole world" (Revelation 12:9). It is sobering to realize that he and his demonic cohorts have the power to blind the minds of unbelievers, preventing them from comprehending even the simplest elements of the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

However, Christ can make the blind to see! In answer to prayer and through the faithful presentation of the Word of truth, "the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know . . ." (Ephesians 1:17-18).

The Lord desires that people come to Christ; therefore, He gives His witnesses weapons that can even vanquish Satan and open the eyes of the spiritually blind. These are the spiritual weapons of truth and righteousness, peace and faith, the Word and prayer (Ephesians 6:11-18). "(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations literally 'reasonings', and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought same word as 'mind' to the obedience of Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

Even though Satan is far more intelligent and powerful than we, or those we seek to reach, God still enables us to recapture their minds and bring them to Christ, as we proclaim His truth, in His name, by His grace!

How Selfish Are You?

(click here & take the test)

Wikipedia Definition of 'Selfish, Selfishness'

Selfishness denotes the precedence given in thought or deed to the self, i.e., self interest or self concern. It is the act of placing one's own needs or desires above the needs or desires of others. Selfishness is the opposite of altruism (Selflessness).
