He Knows, He Knows, He Knows!

Be assured that God is not an American. He is not regulated by Washington, and does not require a congressional hearing to pass a bill. He can accomplish this all by Himself—if WE have faith!

Abraham “knew” God. He just didn’t know OF Him. Not knowing God is more our problem than Obama, Pelosi, Reid and all such leaders who push a socialistic tyrannical agenda combined. We are so acquainted with "Sodom and Gomorrah" that we fail to see the God who made it. We are so enamored with the sins of our nation; we fail to be overwhelmed with the God of our nation.

Do you know God or do you know of Him? Are you in His grip? If you are in His grip, you can and should know what He is capable of. Space fails me to tell of all of His wonderful acts. However, let me just tell you of a few:

He can raise the DEAD.
He can heal all diseases.
He can feed over five thousand people with a few fish.
He can walk on water.
He can demand a living tree to die.
He can speak the worlds into existence.
He knows your thoughts from afar off.
He knows your words before you speak them.
He knows the plans of the wicked before they do them.
He knows the number of hairs on your head.
He knows the bird that just fell from the sky and died.
He knows the end from the beginning.
He knows the length of your life.
He knows your hurts even before you experience them.
He knows the number of teardrops that your eyes have shed.
He knows the stars by name, although they cannot be numbered.
He knows the width of space because it came out of Him.
He knows, He knows, He knows!

There is not anything that God does not know, because His knowledge created everything!

Whether or not America’s days have come to an end is not for us to know or to even be the factor involved in expecting God to do good. What God wants to know is if you believe Him. Leave the business of God judging the nations to God; you make it your business to simply judge Him as the faithful God that He is. Therefore, when you stand before Him on that day of judgment, you can have confidence that you believed Him for mercy upon your nation, even as you believed Him for mercy upon yourself.

Surviving The Storm

Matthew 6:31 “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. (The promise). 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (The requirement).
The Spirit has shown to me; there are many of us that suppose we can tempt the Lord by trying Him in advance of our need, that we might first see His miracle take place, and then choose to believe. When that does not work out, we then try to justify ourselves with flatteries like “see, this word must not be meant for us today.”We then become complacent and start wandering further and further from the Lord, as our views become ever more worldly, and our love continues to grows colder.
My friends, the solution to the problem is, we must first draw close enough to God to where we know Him so intimately, that we can believe without seeing, then we will receive the promised provision as it truly becomes needed. For then we will know that we know, because our relationship makes it so.
Many presume the authority to test God, whether He is, or whether His word is trustworthy by their standards. This is absolutely the highest form of arrogance, even the devils dare not bring such a challenge to God’s sovereign authority. And we must never do so either.
Hebrews 3:8 “Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.” Amen!
Y’shua friend. Shalom!

A Lifetime Of Waiting

We've now been back from our travels for two weeks. The trailer is unpacked and ready to sit through the colder months. Christmas decorations are out - except for the lighted wire snowman who has seen his last Christmas - and presents are wrapped. And best of all, there seems to be a sense of peace all through our home. I was talking to my wife last night about how God might be leading our family. We really have no idea what our life will look like in a few months; but, at least right now, we're content to wait and continue to do the things we know we have already been given to do.

Why is waiting so difficult? I've been thinking about this question and realized that one of the reasons is our "get-it-now" society. I have some good friends in Kenya who live in a much more relaxed and patient world, but most of us are taught from birth the science of immediate gratification. We want, we get; we want some more, we get some more. Accomplishment is defined by running and spinning; but, from what I can see, the result is usually just a spinning out of control.
I'm not sure what caused our world to become so fast paced, but I know it hasn't always been this way. There was a time long ago when people truly knew how to wait on the Lord.
Joseph and Mary were devout Jews who followed the laws of Moses. Therefore, forty days after Jesus was born they "took Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord" (Luke 2:22). This was done in recognition of God's command, "The first offspring of every womb among the Israelites belongs to Me" (Exodus 13:2). They also offered a sacrifice as a burnt offering and sin offering, "a pair of doves and two young pigeons" (Luke 2:24).
This was the process all Jews followed when a child was born. But when Joseph and Mary entered the temple court, holding the baby Jesus, something stirred in a man called Simeon.
Luke 2:25-26
"Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ."
Simeon approached Joseph and Mary, held Jesus and gave a wonderful praise and prophesy. But let's not miss what was said about this man called Simeon. He was devoted to God, and he was waiting. How long was he willing to wait? Well, the only time frame he was given was that he would have his answer sometime before he died. He did not know if this would mean days, months, or many years, but he was willing to wait.
We need to regain this ability, this trust which is content to wait for God's direction. The promises of God are that He will reveal His direction, He will lead, comfort, and "renew their strength" (Isaiah 40:31), but we must be willing to wait and continue to do what we know we have already been given to do. During this Christmas season, let's renew our trust in the God who has so perfectly revealed Himself through the birth of Jesus. Let's commit to following Him all our days and be determined to trust Him through a lifetime of waiting.

Have a Christ Centered Day!

Get Ready-Babylon Is About To Fall

Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. Revelation 18:10

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. Revelation 18:21

My holy people, just as all seems lost concerning the fall of Babylon and all she represents, her complete and utter fall is about to occur. Seek Me for an understanding of things about to occur. Do not be downcast and lose heart when all that is around you seems to be falling apart. It is by My design and by My plan, for all that stands in the way of My Kingdom is not so much in the heart of the evil that is in the land, but in the religious system that is in the way of everything I do.

You see, a complex web of mindsets and of organizations, of people and of charters, have been placed among you, all raising itself up against the knowledge of Me. Actually, it represents something instead of Me, instead of Christ, instead of My Kingdom come, My will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

This is mystery Babylon and this machine of terror is about to be untangled. Do not be confused, this is not speaking of Iraq, but this is speaking of a religious system that you are now a part of. Many know of what I speak, but most are hopelessly caught up into it, believing it to be My Church, when in fact it is against everything that My Church is to be and become.

I have called you to be an accurate expression of Christ in the earth. Instead, Babylon has produced attenders and pretenders, serving kings that have established themselves instead of allowing My Son to be the proper Head of the Church and the Holy Spirit to lead and guide it all. My holy people, Babylon is about to fall. I have been establishing an army across the face of the earth. It is about to be released in an unprecedented way, causing seeming destruction wherever it goes.

Do not lose heart, for it is My army and it shall trample Babylon under its feet to My glory and fame, leaving in its place many lighthouses. Places that shall indeed be My Lighthouses. Free to follow hard after Me and to fearlessly perform My will in the face of a hurting and dying people. Many things are about to change. Rejoice, for I have heard the heart cry and have held this plan in My Heart from before the foundations of the world.

It is time and that time is now and the time is for a people who have a heart after Me, instead of a powerless, putrid message.

O Babylon, you great harlot and seducer of the people. Your doctrine of the Nicolaitans is about to come to an end; this distinguishing of a kingly class of ministers and a false priesthood over the people, what you call the laity, but what I call My holy people. This is coming to an end. You are coming to an end.

This establishing of something so false and so putrid, that it has caused the Holy Spirit to be quenched from moving in the midst now for generations is about to end. My angels have been dispatched, My army is ready, and there is now nothing you can do, but fall in utter disgrace and in utter failure. Babylon, your end is upon you and My Word is against you and your judgment is at hand.

My holy people, those called by My Name. Enter into the battle. Fall into ranks and become radical in following after Me, for it is a time for raising up the standard against the enemy and for building yourself up in Me. I am sending a fresh wave of My Spirit across the land, accompanied by a rough and ready troop. This, My army, shall cleanse the land of this false doctrine and shall lay waste to all that Babylon has done in the hearts and lives of you, My people.

Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Be and become an accurate expression of Christ in the earth.

The Birth Of Jesus Foretold, Day 1

"The Birth of Jesus Foretold, In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David.
The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”- Luke 1:26-28

You Are A Lighthouse

Have I not made you worthless in the eyes of men, yes even among some of your own family and loved ones?--so that I could prosper you as My own—set apart for only heavenly value?

I Am bringing this nation to its knees so that many will see the Light I shine through those that are sincerely humble and authentically devastated for their benefit. There can be no fancy frame around the infinitely more important picture I Am creating in you for them. My special servants and friends must be of no importance to this world for Me to operate fully through them to reach this wicked generation of “me-pleasers.”

I Am tearing down their securities and false confidences week by week. I Am casting out all signs of vain achievement in most, so that the mercy of My kingdom can get through to them. Formerly rich, blind and sick people are stumbling around without direction. They must realize their own foolishness. What they once thought they were, they are no longer in Me. They must realize this. They need My Spirit and My daily leading.

I have allowed you to see your foolishness so you can serve them and help them into the Ark that is waiting—already prepared for their deliverance and eternal salvation. I gave Enoch a view of the world to come and he longed for Me and his place in eternity—his home that is customized for his fulfillment among My people and holy angels. You are called to follow the way of Enoch and to delight in the things above and NOT the things below.

You are to hear My heavenly music and have your spiritual hearing sharpened for My will and daily direction. I cannot use you fully without pruning you completely. Don’t be amazed that I have taken away so much! For what I have taken is rightfully Mine—not yours.

What I will replace for you is unfathomable. Riches greater than the height from the ocean’s deepest depths to its surface are yours in My presence and in residence with Me on My holy mountain. So prepare your heart and clear your mind to follow hard after Me without confusion. I offer you a renewed mind and a bold spirit that will not be denied by the evil that seeks to thwart and block your Light. Resisting all evil, you are to live and walk with Me in heavenly places that men know not.

The Light from My throne is hot and brilliant to those near and far. You shall be as a lighthouse to them. As they hear My messages through the fog and regain hope within the storm—they will be spared because you let Me bring you low and allowed My Son to be exalted high and lifted up so that all men could be drawn to Him.

Now—maintain the lighthouse. Put it in order. Do not let anything distract you from your primary mission—to announce the Good News and let your Light so shine that people will know that I sent you to help them and to find their way in from the storm.

Prepare War! Stir Up The Mighty Men!

In Joel 3, God foretold that one of the reasons He was going to physically judge the nations of the world in the Middle East was because they planned to divide His land. When the Gentile world calls for a division of Israel so that the Palestinians can have a state and a division of Jerusalem so that the Palestinians can have their capital, God is mightily angered.
Jerusalem is originally known as the "City of Peace" or the "Foundation of Peace". However, tearing away a portion of the city in order to give the Palestinians a capital will lead to all-out war, not the peace for which Jerusalem is named. Perhaps this reality is why God specifies all-out war as His method of delivering physical judgment upon those people who would want to divide His land. Listen carefully:
"... Prepare war! Stir up the mighty men! Let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears ... Put in the sickle, for the vintage harvest is ripe; come, get down and tread the grapes, for the winepress is full; the vats overflow, for the wickedness of the peoples is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision." Joel 3:9-10, 13-14.
As if encouraged in their quest for maximum concessions by Israel as they attempt to establish their Palestinian State, Palestinian leaders are demanding that Israel be pushed back to her indefensible borders of 1967. As usual, United Nations leaders are clearly in the Arab camp, once again displaying their rampant anti-Semitism.
