Pick Up Your Sword!

Finally, be strengthened in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.  For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand. Stand firm therefore, by fastening the belt of truth around your waist, by putting on the breastplate of righteousness, by fitting your feet with the preparation that comes from the good news of peace, and in all of this, by taking up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With every prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit, and to this end be alert, with all perseverance and requests for all the saints. Ephesians 6:10-18

Would you ever leave your house half-dressed?  Of course not!  However, many of us often forget to put on our spiritual clothing.  Every day the forces of Satan wage war against you, and it is important to be protected!  With this spiritual protection and authority, you can stand against evil forces.

Learn about your spiritual armor and pick up your sword!  Walking in peace is putting on your shoes of peace.  Walking in rightousness is putting on your breastplate of rightousness, which protects your heart from condemnation.  God supplies the armor you need to defeat all the attacks of the devil, but you must put it on!

Protect Our Children From The Occult

The world of the occult is no playground for our children -- not even in their imagination. From the beginning of recorded history, human minds have been drawn to the thrills and powers of dark forces and mystical manifestations. Though God warned His people to shun such evil, few seemed to heed His Word:

"...the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. " Genesis 6:5

"...they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart..." Jeremiah 11:8

"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life." Galatians 6:7-8

"...the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desire... they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things..."
2 Timothy 4:2-5

"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ..." 2 Corinthians 10:4-6

Those who do take a stand for Truth in the years ahead will probably face hostility. The following chart may help your child give wise answers:

When People say...remember God's truth...

"You should be more tolerant of different beliefs and lifestyles."
Eph. 5:3-11, 15-17 "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness.... "

"You believe your religion is better than ours."
John 14:6. Jesus said, "No one comes to the Father except through me."

"You're not open to other spiritual traditions."
Deut. 4:39. "...the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other."

"You don't understand the need for multicultural unity and understanding. "
2 Tim. 4:3-4. "They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths."

"Your religion doesn't work any more."
Hebrews 13:8. "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."

“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies."
Psalm 18:1-3

Put On The Armor Of Light

Because the apocalyptic prophecies of Daniel and Revelation are about to be fulfilled, the words of the Apostle Paul particularly apply to our generation. He said, "...the hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light." Romans 13:11,12

Preparation for the second coming is all important. It is not enough to believe that Jesus is returning to earth for the devil knows this to be true. It is not enough to understand the prophecies too. It is not enough to belong to some church for the devil has infiltrated all the religious systems in the world. Preparation for the second coming is only obtained by receiving Jesus Christ as Lord over your life and by faith as He leads. Study your Bible, pray for understanding, share the things Jesus reveals to you, love the Lord with all your heart, mind and soul and your neighbor as yourself and you will grow in grace - "attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." Ephesians 4:13

These studies are not sponsored nor endorsed by any religious body or organization. Rather, this is a "grass roots" attempt by ordinary people to bring the "good news" of the soon coming Jesus to every person that will listen.

Daniel Revelation Bible Studies

Do Not Grow Weary

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galations 6:9

"That's it, I've had it...Enough is enough...We'll never change this nation...It's hopeless...I give up...I quit."

The temptation to quit is very powerful.  That is because like most other temptations, it does not take any effort at all to quit.

Sometimes we cloak "I quit" with nicer sounding words like "I guess it doesn't matter", or "let's just go with the flow".  For a minute that sounds good, because it is easy to float downstream.  Just watch any dead fish!  But to swim against the tide takes great vision, determination, sacrifice and effort.

If you are feeling the temptation to quit on our nation's future, take a minute to turn that around right now.  Public service can be very discouraging.  It is likely that your representatives are facing serious discouragement as well.  Pray for our leaders.  Pray for those who are standing for truth and morality.  Pray that God will grant them the courage to keep on keeping on...and most of all, to never quit.

Christian duty is to VOTE!

An Open Letter To Gloria Estefan

By Victoria Jackson: October 14, 2010

Editor's note: The following open letter was first submitted to the Miami Herald, but the paper opted not to publish it.

Miami is my hometown. When I was born at Hialeah Hospital in 1959, you were 2 years old and moving here from Cuba, to escape Communism.

America and its freedom, free enterprise and capitalism gave you the opportunity to become a superstar, to be financially and vocationally successful.

America is now under siege by a Marxist, progressive, leftist, radical, socialist, communist dictator drunk with power. His name is Obama.

You invited him to your home on April 15, 2010, for a Democratic fundraiser.

1. His parents were communists. His grandparents were communists. His childhood mentor Frank Davis was a communist.

2. He had "Marxist professors." He taught a class on Saul Alinsky whose book "Rules for Radicals" is dedicated to Lucifer.

3. His college records are sealed.

4. He claims to be a Christian yet ridicules Scripture, denies Jesus is the only way to salvation, supports partial-birth abortion and attended a church for 20 years pastored by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who did not teach Christianity but "Black Liberation Theology," which is Marxism disguised as religion.

5. He is friends with radicals and communists like William Ayers and has appointed many of them to positions of power – Sunstein, Jarrett, Van Jones, etc.

6. He told Joe the Plumber on the campaign trail that his philosophy was to "spread the wealth." This is a direct quote from "The Communist Manifesto" written by Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels.

7. When he entered office he immediately took over the banks, the auto industry, health care (by bribery) and is intent on ending freedom of speech on the Internet, radio and TV by fees and fines. He is intent on using the myth of human-caused global warming to usurp control over our energy by Cap 'n Tax, which would limit the number of minutes we take a shower and the kind of light bulbs we use.

8. His arrogant, excessive spending, with his stimulus laws and over-taxation, is destroying our economy, the middle class and our children's future quality of life.

You had the audacity to invite this communist over to your home to raise money for the Democratic Party, which is controlling Congress and giving him unlimited power to achieve his goal of making our once-free country a welfare state, just like the Cuba you left.

You are uninformed, ignorant or crazy.

I ask my Cuban friends and neighbors what happened to you. Don't you remember where you came from? Your father in a Cuban communist jail? They shake their heads sadly.

You spit on the free country that gave you the American Dream.

I urge you to educate yourself on what is happening in America today. Nov. 2 is the most serious vote of our nation's history. We will vote in either liberty or tyranny.

How can you vote in tyranny when your family and friends risked their lives on rafts to escape it?

I don't understand you.


Victoria Jackson ("Saturday Night Live" cast member 1986-1992 because of capitalism/freedom)

Why the (Elite) West Is Losing

Why The West Is Losing

A basic building block of elite promotions was total control over the mainstream Western media. But in the 21st century, the Internet has entirely unraveled that control. If the 20th century was like a yo-yo winding up, then the 21st century is like one spinning in the other direction. Every single historical untruth foisted on a writhing Western population during the 20th century is coming unwound now, from the progressive "heroics" of Woodrow Wilson and the two Roosevelts, to the installation of the Keynesian financial system itself after World War II, to the larger Pax Americana.

The Internet is full of all sorts of debunking, and as the economic situation continues to worsen, the anger rises and the promotions put in place by the Anglo-American axis – whether historical or current – continue to lose credibility in our humble view. The response of the elite, especially in America, has been to reset the Hegelian "goal posts" of the promotional conversation. "Conservative" media figureheads such as Sarah Palin and others have adopted many of the talking points of the Internet-inspired free-market conversation now taking place.

But as the truth-telling of the Internet has continue to make inroads, the elite has found itself in the ludicrous position of in a sense endorsing all but the most radical free-market thinking. In other words, in order to maintain credibility, the elite has adopted so many of the more radical libertarian ideas that its positions are not often indistinguishable from the rhetorical perspectives it is trying to co-opt. This is not, one would think, a satisfactory situation for an Anglo-American axis that for at least 150 years has sought to undermine the idea that civil society can exist without the murderous beneficences of the state.

But it is still worse. Only 60 years ago, the Anglo-American axis controlled the greatest empire ever known to man. After World War II, the globe was virtually prostrate at its feet. An entire global infrastructure was initiated at this time. The BIS, the World Bank and the IMF were all reconfigured and positioned around the crown jewel – the United Nations itself. At the same time an obscure trade-treaty was initiated in Europe, one that was to become, of course, the European Union.

But something happened on the inevitable march to full globalization under the control of the Anglo-American axis. The Internet appeared – first merely an annoyance and now a full-fledged and seemingly uncontrollable (pointy) weapon aimed directly at Leviathan. Like the Gutenberg press before it, it has entirely undone the culture of control that was so painstakingly wrapped round the world after two world wars. What is taking place today in our view is truly a New Enlightenment.

We realize this flies in the face of the doom and gloom that propagates itself within the generous confines of the alternative 'Net press. But in fact, the old order is collapsing just as we have predicted for a decade now. Of course, we are well aware that the Renaissance, the Reformation and the Enlightenment were not entirely peaceable movements. But here is another point: For whatever reason we sense a certain weariness affecting the Western elites. Many of those in vanguard, for whatever reason, seem to be old men and the younger ones meanwhile may be slightly abashed at how savagely the veil of secrecy has been ripped away from money power. They read the Internet too.

In A Nut-Shell

From Global Depression to Global Governance

We now stand at the edge of the global financial abyss of a ‘Great Global Debt Depression,’ where nations, mired in extreme debt, are beginning to implement ‘fiscal austerity’ measures to reduce their deficits, which will ultimately result in systematic global social genocide, as the middle classes vanish and the social foundations upon which our nations rest are swept away. How did we get here? Who brought us here? Where is this road leading? (Click Link & Read It All In A Nut-Shell)

Come Out Of Her, My People

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


So then they said to him, “What must we do to accomplish the deeds God requires?” Jesus replied, “This is the deed God requires – to believe in the one whom he sent.” John 28-29

So many time I have prayed, "Father, What do you want me to do?  If you will just show me what to do, I will gladly do it".

I was a doer.  All anyone had to do was show me what needed to be done, and I did it.  And I did my best to do it right.  But what frustrated me and confused me was when I did something right and it still did not work.  I had not yet learned that unless the Lord builds the house, "they labor in vain who build it" (Psalm 127:1).

The people in John 6:28 wanted to know what they needed to do to please God.  They wanted to know what to do in order to work the works of God.  What was Jesus' answer to these people?  "This is the work that God asks of you: that you believe in the One whom He has sent".

When this passage was first revealed to me, I thought I would learn what to do.  And in a sense, I do.

He told me, "Believe".

Protect Me From The Snare Psalm 141

A psalm of David.

1 O Lord, I cry out to you. Come quickly to me! Pay attention to me when I cry out to you!
2 May you accept my prayer like incense, my uplifted hands like the evening offering!
3 O Lord, place a guard on my mouth! Protect the opening of my lips!
4 Do not let me have evil desires, or participate in sinful activities with men who behave wickedly. I will not eat their delicacies.
5 May the godly strike me in love and correct me! May my head not refuse choice oil! Indeed, my prayer is a witness against their evil deeds.
6 They will be thrown down the side of a cliff by their judges.  They will listen to my words, for they are pleasant.
7 As when one plows and breaks up the soil, so our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
8 Surely I am looking to you, O sovereign Lord. In you I take shelter.
9 Do not expose me to danger! Protect me from the snare they have laid for me,
and the traps the evildoers have set.
10 Let the wicked fall  into their own nets, while I escape.


A Covert Mission Strategy

by Heidi Swander

Is it just me? Have I gone daft? Why, in the name of all that is good and decent, is there even one American amenable to erecting a gigantic mosque - the proposed "Cordoba House" -- at the New York site of 9/11?

What happened to Americans standing together for our country? What happened to the fury over the deaths of over two thousand American citizens on September 11, 2001? As a well-known radio host I know likes to say so often, "Where is the outrage?"

It would seem that the mission strategy of the followers of Mohammed is achieving its desired effect. Yes, mission strategy. In Arabic the word is Dawah, and it's been going on right under the noses of millions of Americans for many, many years.

So today, we have Muslim calls to prayer in Manhattan, New York; Dearborn police defending Islam against the Constitution of the United States at the 2010 Arab Festival; an annual Muslim parade in New York City that obstructs streets for blocks around as Muslims kneel to pray to Allah - the moon god of ancient Mesopotamia; a city council that approves Muslim prayers over loudspeakers within city limits; a congressman of the United States sworn in on the Koran; a president who does his first formal TV interview with an Arabic cable television network; a mayor of one of the cities attacked by Muslim terrorists nine years ago who defends the building of a 13-story mosque on the very ground where Americans were buried in rubble from the decimation; and Muslims appointed to posts within our own Homeland Security! And that's just a little taste of what's going on in America today thanks to the missionary work of faithful adherents to Islam.

And what, exactly, are we supposed to do about it?

The Rock

And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.  Matthew 16:17-18

What "rock" is Jesus talking about?  He is talking about the rock of faith.  He tells Simon Peter that on the faith he has just displayed He will build His Church, and  "...the gates of hell shall not prevail against it".  That means that the powers of hell shall not prevail against the person who walks in faith.

We have authority has believers to bring heaven's will to earth by acting in partnership with God.  He is in heaven and we are on earth.  Because His Spirit is in us, and because we have His Word, we can know what His will is.  We have authority on earth to bring heaven's will into action.

What God binds or looses in heaven, what He allows or disallows, is all that we can allow or disallow here in the earth.

A Special Crown

If we live each day as though Christ can return at any moment, then we are inspired to live Godly lives.

"For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with self-control, right conduct, and devotion to God, while we look forward to that wonderful event when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed." Titus 2:11-13

"Another reason for right living is that you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for the coming of our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed." Romans 13:11

"So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the special blessings that will come to you at the return of Jesus Christ. Obey God because you are his children. Don't slip back into your old ways of doing evil; you didn't know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God - who chose you to be his children - is holy." 1 Peter 1:13-15

While a Christian's primary focus should always be Jesus Christ, the study of the Antichrist and end times bible prophecy in general serves a valuable purpose. Those who believe Christ can come for His church at any moment remain alert and prepared, prompting them to holy living on a daily basis.

As Paul reveals, a special crown awaits those who eagerly await Christ's return.

"And now the prize awaits me - the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing." 2 Timothy 4:8

The Rebirth Of Rome, Jerusalem & Babylon, Iraq

When the Antichrist takes control of the world, his government will function out of three major cities.

From Babylon he will direct his worldwide empire of economic and financial concerns. Revelation 18:12-13
Bible prophecy says the ancient city of Babylon, Iraq will be rebuilt and become the greatest center of wealth, commerce and power in the ‘last days’ of history. The books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Revelation are explicit on this subject. While Skeptics and cynics may disagree, the fact is Babylon is being rebuilt right now, in part with U.S. taxpayer funds and Iraqi leaders hope that eventually millions of tourists will come to visit.
The Babylon Project US
The city of Babylon will be rebuilt and become the commercial center of the world and the center of the Antichrist’s kingdom:  Ever since the days of Nimrod, human beings have tried to rule the world. To do so they must control the economy. During the Tribulation, Antichrist will rule the world, not only by an army but also by controlling commerce. People will not be able to buy or sell without his permission except on the blackmarket.

From Rome he will rule the Political world.
The Lord shows Daniel many years prior that after the fall of the pagan kindgom of Rome, or the fourth Global kindgom, would arise another power that would seek to regain this Global kingdom for its own evil purposes. Daniel saw that when pagan Rome fell it would split into ten separate kindgoms. He even saw that three of the nations that were part of that split, wouldn’t go along with new plans to regain this global kingdom. What type of kingdom was this that was so evil that three nations were willing to die to prevent it's rise? And just as Daniel was shown by the Lord, it all happened with perfect timing. History records perfectly every step of Rome in this regard. This is what's so amazing about studying prophecy in the last days. We have HISTORY to look back on! We can actually match historic events with prophetic utterances in the Word of the Christian God.
From Jerusalem he will control the Religious world after making a covenant with the Jews. 2 Thessalonians 2:4
The Antichrist will deify himself - just like the Caesar's did. He will proclaim himself to be God. he will demand that he be worshipped and will establish himself in the temple of God. There is only one place where this temple of God can be and that is on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem, on the site where the Dome of the Rock and other Moslem shrines now stand. There are many places in the Bible that pinpoint this location as the one where the Jews will rebuild their Temple.The Israelis will then be permitted to re-institute the sacrifice and offering aspect of the law of Moses. This demands that the Temple be rebuilt, because according to the law of Moses, sacrifices can only be offered in the Temple at Jerusalem. Apparently all this will be done under the protection of the Antichrist of Rome. The Arabs are not going to like this idea of rebuilding the Temple one bit.

The Spiritual Ladder

Jesus blasts the top birds of the church, those who roost at the top of the spiritual ladder and spread their plumes of robes, titles, jewelry, and choice seats. Jesus won’t stand for it. It’s easy to see why. How can I love others if my eyes are only on me? How can I point to God if I’m pointing at me? And, worse still, how can someone see God if I keep fanning my own tail feathers? Jesus has no room for pecking orders.

“Love endures long and is patient and kind: Love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.  It is not conceited: it is not rude and does not act unbecomingly.  Love does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it.  It does not rejoice at injustice and unrightousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail". 1 Corinthians 13:4-6

The Conditioning of the Masses

by Heidi Swander

"We do not want another committee, we have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all the people and to lift us up out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and whether he be God or devil, we will receive him."

These dangerous and telling words, attributed to Paul-Henri Spaak, one-time secretary general of NATO and first president of the United Nations General Assembly, epitomize the day in which we live. The people of the world are being conditioned for just such a person -- we call him the antichrist, and he will be the devil incarnate.

The conditioning of the masses is taking many forms. One esoteric, but increasingly prolific, form of preparation has been the whole subject of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). I've written on this subject before (a couple times, actually), but this past week the subject entered the mainstream.

Dr. Mazlan Othman, Malaysia's first astrophysicist and head of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa) was this week officially appointed "Space Ambassador" by the United Nations. Did you catch that? The UN -- a very official, if dubious, body -- actually has an Office for Outer Space Affairs and just appointed an ambassador to greet aliens from outer space when they arrive! You can't make this stuff up!

That's not all. On Monday, September 27, several former U.S. military officers confirmed in a press conference held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., that they had witnessed UFOs tampering with US nuclear missile control sites in 1967. These are well-respected U.S. military officers, not wacko conspiracy theorists.

Furthermore, earlier this year the British government released 6,000 pages of UFO documents on sightings within the country. And the Royal Society of London which earlier this year held a conference on The Detection of Extraterrestrial Life and the Consequences for Science and Society, has another meeting scheduled this week (that the new UN space ambassador plans to attend) titled, "Towards a Scientific and Societal Agenda on Extraterrestrial life". Lord Martin Rees, president of the Royal Society, is quoted as saying, "Aliens may be staring us in the face . . . I suspect there could be life and intelligence out there in forms we can't conceive . . . it could be there are aspects of reality that are beyond the capacity of our brains."

Brannon Howse, sitting in for Jan on our Understanding the Times radio broadcast this past Saturday (Oct. 2, 2010), equated the official and increased recognition of UFOs with "religious syncretism" -- the coalescing of the one-world religion by bringing many divergent and seemingly incompatible religions together. Brannon asked his guest, Gary Bates, author of the book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, if he saw the UFO phenomenon as laying the foundation for the antichrist. "I could not see a better explanation. Because, in fact, most of the UFO writings -- and particularly the writings that claim to have been channeled to receivers here on the Earth -- do have an eschatology, and it seems to strongly, actually, follow the idea that people are going to be whisked away off the Earth into space ships. That sounds like the Rapture . . ." which we know is necessary in order for the antichrist to make his entrance.

Dr. Ron Carlson, president of Christian Ministries International, and Ed Decker, founder and international director of Saints Alive in Jesus, co-wrote an excellent resource book titled, Fast Facts on False Teachings. In it, they address the subject of UFOs: "What about UFOs? We don't believe their existence should be denied. There is simply too much evidence today that suggests that something is there. It's no longer whether they exist but what they are."

They go on to say, "Our own speculation is based upon the study of Scripture and the study of UFOs, and we emphasize that this is only an educated opinion. What we believe is that we are seeing the world being prepared for the coming of the antichrist on a UFO. In other words, we believe that UFOs are of a demonic realm.

"Why do we say this? Because our world today is not looking for a spiritual messiah; it is looking for a technological savior. If some UFO landed on planet Earth and out walked a Christ-like, benevolent creature, an E.T. who claimed to be a higher intelligence who could solve all our economic and environmental and technological problems, the world would flock to him."

Whether the antichrist exits a UFO or not, it's possible that the short time of his reign on Earth will be much more terrifying than any of us could ever imagine. In his most recent book, The Amazing Claims of Bible Prophecy, Dr. Mark Hitchcock discusses the bizarre "locusts" described in Revelation 9 that will be given limited opportunity to hurt the followers of the beast during the Tribulation. Dr. Hitchcock states, "Demons do have the ability to appear in an assortment of material forms, both human and animal," and he gives examples of this. The Bible states that these locusts will, in fact, be demons set free from the abyss for a time. Dr. Hitchcock refers to this demonic hoard as an "alien invasion" (citing shades of the movie Independence Day) and he asks, "What will it be like when countless thousands of demons who have been chained in the abyss for thousands of years run rampant throughout the earth in visible form during the Tribulation? There will be unspeakable horror!"

But, as you know, for decades now the world has been in a conditioning process to accept this as normal. Movies like The Day the Earth Stood Still, Star Wars, Independence Day and television series such as Star Trek, Babylon Five, Lois and Clark and Stargate SG-1 -- just to name a very few -- have brought society as a whole to a place where, should the unthinkable become reality, many will accept it as a matter of course. And since the phenomenon is satanic, the enemy will hold sway over the masses.

I look at this and I see just another indication that we are so close to going Home that my ears are constantly perked to hear that trumpet when it blasts! From a human perspective all of this is terrifying. But from the perspective of the child of God, it is one more piece of the end-times puzzle over which our Father has complete control.

Waterfall Of Love

Here is the sort of fast I want - releasing those unjustly bound, untying the thongs of the yoke, letting the oppressed go free, breaking every yoke, sharing your food with the hungry, taking the homeless poor into your house, clothing the naked when you see them, fulfilling your duty to your kinsmen!. Then your light will burst forth like the morning, your new skin will quickly grow over your wound; your righteousness will precede you, and The Lord's glory will follow you. Then you will call, and The Lord will answer; you will cry, and he will say, "Here I am." If you will remove the yoke from among you, stop false accusation and slander, generously offer food to the hungry and meet the needs of the person in trouble; then your light will rise in the darkness, and your gloom become like noon. The Lord will always guide you; he will satisfy your needs in the desert, he will renew the strength in your limbs; so that you will be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails. You will rebuild the ancient ruins, raise foundations from ages past, and be called "Repairer of broken walls, Restorer of streets to live in." Isaiah 58:6-12

My holy people; don’t do your things, but choose with all your heart to do My things. For as you enter into My labors you will make a difference no matter where you go. In fact, everywhere you go you do make a constant difference and it is through this work that I answer prayers by watering the land.

You are a watered garden. You are a pleasant place of rest. You will rebuild the ancient ruins, yes the ruins of My Church that is now a desert wasteland. Generations will be refreshed at the well of your life. You will be known as My Great Heart in flesh, as you constantly minister My Great Heart to those you encounter along the way.

Have you forgotten the joys of time spent alone with Me? Have you forgotten the joys of our hearts mingled in love? This is your great source of joy and of peace and of power to make a difference. It is time to remember. Remember our love. Especially remember My love for you. Remember what we have done together. Testify of what we have done together. Boldly go where nobody has gone before in our love. I tell you, My love, it is time to run together through the villages, sharing My Great Heart wherever you go. Share My Great Heart in practical ways, in ways that have substance. Share My Great Heart as you usher in freedom wherever you go.

My Great Heart leaps with joy at the sound of Holy Spirit moving and working to do what no man can do alone. Like a Waterfall, Our Hearts are mingled in Love.

I am walking with you. I am walking in union with you. I am walking in all grace with you. These and more are found by those searching with all their hearts; seeking Me and finding Me.
