Try To Imagine

Try To Imagine-1 Corinthians 2:6-19

We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.  No, we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written: 

“No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him” –  but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.  The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

Try to imagine that God sees past, present and future all at the same time.  Try to imagine what God’s “secret wisdom” is…  “a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.”  Try to imagine that God already knows what’s going to happen everywhere and every “when” on earth, 24/7/365. 

Try to imagine that God has searched your heart and he knows you… that He knows when you sit down and when you get up… that He perceives every thought that runs through your head all the way from heaven, and that He does so without your opening your mouth to express those thoughts… that He knows everything that you do, where you go, whether you’re going somewhere or whether you’re lying down… that He is familiar with every single one of your habits… that before a word is on your tongue, God knows it completely.  (Psalm 139:1-4)

Pretty awesome, isn’t it?  Now, try to imagine this… God has things planned for you that “no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has conceived”.   Perhaps the toughest one for any of us to comprehend is that God is going to create a new heaven and a new earth. (Isaiah 65:17; Revelation 21:1) 

Have you ever wondered what heaven is like?  Most of us do, at least a little.  The problem is, we don’t have any frame of reference for what heaven is like.  So when we imagine it, there’s always some of what we know on earth incorporated into our thinking.  But the truth is, “no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has conceived” what heaven is really like.  The only thing we know for sure is that Jesus is there, and so are all our friends and relatives that we love who were saved before they passed away.  What it looks like… what we’ll do there… well, we just have no way to know…

Now, why think about all these things?   Because this old world can be a rough place to live.  Even those of people who have what others perceive as “good” lives have to contend with things that try their minds and spirits and emotions.  It doesn’t matter who we are, we are not immune from trials.  And even when we’re not suffering one trial or another, we still have difficult decisions to make.  We have to contend with our health and that of our families… We have to make decisions about where to live and what to eat and what to wear and where to work.  And we have to deal with those same things when our jobs disappear for one reason or another.  We have to deal with relationships, and we have to deal with people who turn on us or betray us or hurt us in some other way.  And, sometimes, we have to deal with the death of someone we love.

If you’re finding this old world tough to deal with, remember this… if you are a born again believer, the Holy Spirit is living within you to guide you, to teach you, and to comfort you.  Knowing this and knowing about the eternal future that awaits you should give you hope and the courage to keep going in this life.  Just remember, this life came to pass, not to stay… This is not all there is… and what awaits us is more awesome than we can possibly imagine.

Nation Against Nation Ethnos

By Paul McGuire

About fifteen years ago as I was speaking live on the air from Los Angeles, while hosting the nationally syndicated Paul McGuire Show, which aired Monday-Friday, from 3 PM to 6 PM for over 10 years. While doing one particular show, the Lord spoke to me. He did not speak to me in an audible voice, but in my spirit. I was talking on the need for a genuine and Biblical revival. All of sudden, I received what can only be described as a revelation. I did not announce to the audience that, "I was receiving a revelation from God." I thought quietly about it, before I spoke and I did not make some ground pronouncement. I simply shared the truth the Lord revealed to me, in a conversational tone.

The Lord showed me something quickly, like a divine illumination. You know, kind of like those pictures of a light bulb going on in somebody's brain? But, I knew that these ideas were not the product of my own intellect, because they were not the result of my own thinking processes or study. But, as I was hosting the show live and talking to the callers on-air, I was thinking about what the Lord had revealed to me and although, it applied nationally, I knew that at that time, God was focusing in on Los Angeles. The Lord showed me that one of the greatest things holding back revival was the sin of racism in the church.

It was as if, I could see that God wanted to send a mighty last day's revival to Southern California, but that Satan was able to block it because of division between white, brown and black Christians. I actually surprised myself, when I began talking about it. I did not realize the deep significance of this to what was happening in the invisible realm. When I began to talk about it on the air, the topic of revival and racism was met with somewhat of an icy reception. That did not matter to me because I knew the Lord told me to talk about it and eventually lead the radio audience in intercessory prayer. I learned long ago on the radio, to obey the Lord and not try to please people.

It was God who raised me up and my job was to follow His orders, whether or not they were popular. Eventually, the audience felt the divine urgency to pray for this and it was like great dams in heaven were unblocked and the rivers of living water were pouring out across the land. I could sense that by obeying God, that we had dealt a blow to the powers of darkness!

Now that is not something I would ordinarily talk about or share and I did not say anything to the effect of the "Lord showed me."  I did not want to puff myself up, or bring attention to myself.  It was the truth that God showed that was important, and I felt that I was to get out of the way and talk about that truth.  I must explain, that I don't usually follow trends in the Christian community.  Nor do I attempt to be politically correct.  I could care less about being politically correct, my goal was and is the truth and not political correctness.  At this time, there were a lot of teachings circulating around the church about repenting of racism and asking God for forgiveness for personal sins of racism and collective sins of racism, such as the sin of slavery and what was done to the Indians.

I believe those were actual sins that were committed and that they need to acknowledged, confessed as sin, forgiveness asked for and to whatever degree possible practical reconciliation made.

However, I do not buy into what is called historical revisionism, regarding America's history.  America is not perfect and our history is not perfect, we should not sweep that under the carpet.  But, America and American Christians are not all evil either.  The fathers of the First Great Awakening like Jonathan Edwards had a deep love for the Indian community and he voluntarily chose to spend many of his years, including  the final years of his ministry to teaching, educating and ministering to the Indians, while living on an Indian reservation.  Although, our Constitution and Bill of Rights was not initially applied to African Americans, women and Indians, eventually changes were made and life, liberty and pursuit of happiness were applied equally to all Americans.

There is no question that what European men who came to America and called themselves Christians did to both African Americans in terms of buying and selling slaves, raping the slave women and violating God's laws.  I realize the issue is far more complicated and not as simplistic as I am making it.  In addition, God rose up many godly men like Abraham Lincoln and then despite his imperfections, Martin Luther King, Kr.  Although. America is not perfect, to one degree or another, it is willing to change and repent and God honors that.

Then about 12 years ago, the Lord began to warn me prophetically about the coming race wars that would erupt in America, the EU and around the world. The Lord supernaturally pulled back the veil and showed me that these race wars and class wars were not the mere result of natural human racial conflicts.  The Lord shined a light in the darkness and He made me understand that these race wars and class wars were being carefully orchestrated and planned by an invisible elite that would use the media to create both manufactured crisis and manufactured race wars in our nation!  These invisible elite was a combined effort of powerful occult groups like the Illuminati and international banking interests which were trying to bring down America in order to install a global government and a one world economic system.  Their end game was to destroy the Middle Class in America, the EU, Australia, Asia, South Africa, South America and other areas.  They wanted one giant lower class of serfs or slaves and a ruling elite class.  They planned to use genocide to reduce the population of planet earth by billions and microchip the rest of the population.

These financial groups who are controlled by the Illuminati and the Externalization of the Hierarchy were going to radically changed planet earth through the United Nation's Agenda 21 program.  The Externalization of the Hierarchy refers to a race of highly evolved super beings that are in direct contact with spirit guides from another world and are directing the global plan for a one world government, one world economic system and one world religion.  I explain all this in the 3-DVD series, Are you Ready? They planned to destroy the Constitution and bring in UN law.  A world charismatic leader would soon arise who would rule ten regional global governments and establish a single global government.  This charismatic leader or Anti-Christ would receive supernatural help from the False Prophet, who would perform signs and wonders, create a one world econonomic system and force people to accept a biochip or microchip implant.  This False Prophet would then establish a one world religion and a one world economic system.  The fact that the False Prophet calls fire down from the sky and the people of the earth worship some kind of technological image of the First Beast or Antichrist seems to indicate contact with beings from another dimension.  Although, our modern culture would classify these beings as aliens, they could represent the one third of the angels who followed Lucifer and are in rebellion from God.

But, this goes far beyond what most people think!  In order to unify the world, there would be the threat of a massive alien invasion from outer space.  Whether real or manufactured with technology from Operation Blue Beam, both the False Prophet and the Antichrist would unify the world.  This will involve transhumanism, the Post Human movement, a DNA dictatorship, animal/human and possibly Nephilim interspecies breeding in order to create a super race.  When Jesus Christ said, they would nation would fight against nation (ethnos). I think he was referring not only to human race wars, but against a hybrid alien race, which are the result of human and the breeding of Nephilim or fallen angels.   I do into all of this in the 3-DVD series, "Are You Ready?" and the new DVD, now available for pre-order, entitled. "Moon into Blood."

After the Flood of Noah, which some Bible scholars believe was designed to wipe out the interspecies breeding that happened between the fallen angels and human women, producing the Nephilim.  However, after the Flood of Noah, which Jesus Christ referred to when He said, "As it was in the Days of Noah, so it shall be in the Days of the coming of the Son of Man."  The implication appears to be that one of the primary sins of the human race in addition to wickedness and violence was the interspecies breeding between fallen angels and human women that produced the Nephilim.

The Bible gives references to other races that were the result of the DNA produced by the interspecies breeding between human women and fallen angels, in addition to the Nephilim. The Rephaim, according to ancient Ugaritic and Phoenician sources, were a race of giants that appeared to be the result of interspecies breeding.  History, archeology and the Bible reveal that giants once roamed this earth - before and after the flood.  Genetically these giants were not fully human.  Like the Nephilim, they were the result of the mixture of human DNA with the DNA of fallen angels.  That is why when Joshua and Caleb entered the Promised Land of Canaan, the land was filled with giants.  Some scientists believe that the DNA of these giants has been recovered in bodies and skeletons of giants found in Antarctica and frozen deep beneath the earth.  There are astronauts and scientists who believe that the bodies of aliens recovered at UFO crash sites, contain the DNA of a super race.  The question is, "Did this super race come from another dimension or from outer space. In addition, there appears to be a connection between the highly advanced technology of these aliens or fallen angels.  Some people believe that these advanced races are patterning secretly with the military and governments in highly classified projects.

If that is the case, then some of the technology that has been discovered over the last 50 years, may have come from the technology developed by alien or fallen angels.  A careful reading of Revelation opens the door to that possibility.

These giants like Goliath were defeated when Joshua and the people of Israel conquered the Promised Land.  We find a reference to this in the book of Joshua in Joshua 17:15:

"If you are so numerous," Joshua answered, "and if the hill country of Ephraim is too small for you, go up into the forest and clear land for yourselves there in the land of the Perizzites and Rephaites."  The Rephaites were the Rephaim of old.

But even after the Rephaim were wiped out, their legacy remained.  In fact a whole valley was named after them.  It turned out that the "Valley of Rephaim" witnessed quite a number of battles according to the Scriptures.  We see one example of this in 2 Samuel 5:22....

"And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim."

When Jesus Christ referred to nation going against nation, the root word is ethnos, which means ethnic or racial group.  Since it was Christ Himself who compared the Days of Noah with our time, the distinguishing factor of Noah's time was the interspecies breeding between the sons of god and human women, which means the interspecies breeding between fallen angels which could be aliens and human women.  Again, since Jesus Christ makes the direct comparison between the Days of Noah and our time, what is He talking about?  Exceeding wickedness and violence, although deserving judgment has almost been a constant in human history. The unique and distinguishing factor would have to be the interspecies breeding, which God went to great length to forbid in the Levitical laws going after strange flesh, which includes interspecies sexual relations and breeding.    Genetically a divined principle is instituted in Genesis.  In Genesis 1:11-25, God reveals His commandment in being fruitful and multiplication.  Repeatedly, we read the term, "That yields fruit according to its own kind." Genesis 1:11.  In Genesis 1:12, God's Word say's, "And the earth brings forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its own kind, and the tree that yield fruit according to its own kind, whose seed itself according to its own kind.  And God saw that it was good."

In Genesis 1:21, "So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their own kind, and every winged bird according to its own kind. And God saw that it was good." In Genesis 1:24-25, "Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so. 25

And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good."

However, when it comes to the creation of man, God cannot make man according to its kind!  Despite the lies of Evolutionary Theory, man is not an evolved part of the animal kingdom, he something completely different, God says in a completely unique manner, "Let Us make man in Our image."  Therefore mankind is distinct and above the rest of creation because he is made in the image of God.  The genetics of DNA of man are made in the image of God and not plant or animal!

In Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over allthe earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

God made man for a high and holy purpose and God does not want the DNA in man to be corrupted by interspecies breeding of animal or fallen angel.  Thus the strict Levitcal Law's against bestiality or same-sex relationships, which is termed strange flesh.  In addition, sexual relationships between human women and fallen angels violates God's divine order genetically.

As we turn on the evening news we see a marked increase in earthquakes, freak weather, tornadoes', wars and rumors of wars.  The signs of the times that Jesus Christ spoke about before His return, are increasing with intensity.  The nation of Israel is God's prophetic time clock and we not only need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but we need to recognize that the prospect of World War III and thermonuclear war erupting in the Middle East as profound Biblical applications.  Although, there are questions as to whether or not we are approaching the War of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38? What is happening between Israel and Iran has prophetic significance.

Jesus Christ also warned us in Matthew 24:7-8:

"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and  earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows."  I believe that we are seeing the very beginning of the birth pains that Jesus Christ spoke of.  But, I do not believe that we have yet entered the seven year Tribulation Period.  Let's look at the words of Jesus Christ again:

"For nation [ethnos] shall rise against nation, and kingdom [basileia] against kingdom: and there shall be famines [limos], and pestilences [loimos], and earthquakes [seismos], in divers places. " In Italics we have the Greek words from which words like nation come  from.

Jesus Christ said that in the last day's nation, which comes from ethnos.  Ethnos literally means nation or ethnic and racial group.  It could refer to an ethnic group involved in a tribal or other kind of war.  At the economic problems of our nation and the world's nation's increase, people have a tendency to want to retreat to their own ethnic, racial or tribal groups for safety.  This is part of the fall of man and in it is demonic in nature.  Racism is a demonic force, because it is built upon the satanic lie or stronghold, that one race is superior over another.

In America right now, as in other nations of the world, there are powerful groups behind the scenes that are seeking to promote race wars so they can divide and conquer.  The strategy of division and conquest is an ancient military strategy.  Right now in America, it appears there are powerful forces using the media to whip up racial hatred and incite race wars.  That does not mean that we do not have serious problems and injustices to be worked out among different ethnic and racial groups.  But, there are forces, ultimately demonic, which are using race, as a means to deliberately start race wars and the media is a prime tool in this operation!

We must remember that all true Christians who have been born-again and have the Holy Spirit living inside of them are part of the Body of Christ.  As such, no matter what race or ethnic group we are part of, we are one in the Spirit.  Ultimately, our racial identity is found in the Word of God.  All true believers are now in the blood line of Jesus Christ and we carry the spiritual DNA of God.  In Christ, we have been made new creatures in Christ and as new creatures in Christ; we are now in race of the children of God.

The responsibility of believers is not to be conformed to this world.  We must access the mind of Christ and renew our minds with the Word of God.  As such, we must resist the devil and the world spirit, which would attempt to divide the true Body of Christ.  Jesus Christ said that we are to "love one another and by this all men will know we are true Christians!"  There are many so-called Christian leaders of many races who are stirring up racial hatred and race wars.  True Christians, who are walking in the power of the Holy Spirit, are able to discern the spirits.  Men and women who claim to be Christian leaders and use the title Reverend, Doctor  and Pastor, are wolves in sheep's clothing if they are inciting racism!

Any person, who has the Holy Spirit living inside of them, has the agape love of Jesus Christ in them.  A person whose hear is filled with the love of Christ cannot promote racial hatred and be walking under the Lordship of Christ.  For any Christian to say that they are voting for someone simply because they are black, white or brown is sin.  You never vote for someone on the basis of race.  You vote for someone because they most closely represent and stand for Biblical values.  Race should have nothing to do with it.

We must resist the temptation to surrender to racial hatred; no matter how justified we may feel.  People may commit sins against other person that are racially motivated and that is sin.  But, we are not to be overcome evil with evil.  The root problem is not race.  The root problem is sin.

Raised Up

Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.  And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?  Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way. I Corinthians 12:27-28

If all you are getting is information from people who do not have the Spirit of God in them, no matter how much you may like them, you are cutting yourself off from the revelation of God's Word in the last days. God has risen up His ministers, Bible teachers and those with prophetic callings in the last day. They have both intellectual knowledge and an anointing from the Holy Spirit to minister. They also have studied and understand the prophetic scriptures, rightly dividing the Word of God. If you are not walking in the power of the Holy Spirit and renewing your mind with the Word of God, than you are not walking in the perfect will of God. However well-meaning, you are like sheep that has been led astray. Radio, television, Internet and media commentators may be brilliant and share your values. Many Christians worship secular and Christian celebrity status over being called by God. This is a form of idolatry and God has judged His church for doing this.This is why in many cases the church is lost and not on fire for the Lord, because the people seek to be fed spiritually by media celebrities. They are worshipping men and not listening to God. Who are the true ministers of God who have been anointed by God to lead and guide His people in the last days? They are there and many Christians who have spiritual discernment are listening to what God has to say to His people now through their ministries. But, if they do not have the Holy Spirit inside of them and really understand prophecy properly, you are existing on a spiritual diet of Fruit Loops. This is meant to be a word of correction.  These are the last days and you are to walk according to the Word of God. This is the only way you can overcome and truly understand what's going on. In addition, the only way you can be spiritually equipped, edified and built up is through teachers who have been called by God and are equipped by God to minister to you the Word of God by the Holy Spirit. Conservative commentators have things to offer, but if they do not have the supernatural call God on their lives, they can only give you mere human knowledge. You are part of the Body of Christ and God has specifically raised up His ministers to equip you.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6

An Empty Tomb

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Of Religion & Resurrection

Near to the eve of His destruction, He taught in the temple to the multitudes and to His disciples, giving a stern rebuke to the scribes and Pharisees, and they did not receive his words because their hearts were hardened, leading Him to conclude: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gatherest her chickens under her wings, and ye would not.  Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.  For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of YHVH."

I, too, felt His despair on my trip to Jerusalem in 2006.  It wasn't what I expected. Churches were built over the places where my Savior suffered, shrines, even idols to his memory. The path He took to the cross was not uphill as historically described, it was downhill.  Only because the original way to Golgotha was buried beneath 21 feet of 2,000 years of civilization, but it didn't stop the money changers from their promotions; or the Muslims, who control that part of Jerusalem, from boarding up many of the historical sites.

And when Helena, the mother of Roman Emperor Constantine, authenticated where my Savior was crucified on Golgotha, she leveled the site and the Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches rushed to build shrines over what they believed to be the site of the crucifixion, where He was prepared for burial, and the tomb given by Joseph of Arimathaea.  The Greek Orthodox church won the race; the Catholics built a building attached to the Greek Orthodox church.  Both made Helena a saint.  But they turned these holy places into idols, gaudy relics of religion parked upon it, devoid of spiritual significance, reminiscent of the white sepulchers of which He once spoke, beautiful on the outside, but dead bones within.

I grieved in my spirit of what man has done to His honor.  But there was yet another stop along the way.  The actual place of the skull, Golgotha, a killing place not 100 yards from where Helena claimed my Savior was buried. A garden tomb.  A peaceful place.  A place also once owned by Joseph of Arimathaea.  A place where the stone was more likely rolled away.  And there was joy in my heart. For my Lord and Savior Yeshua Ha Mashiach revealed to me that it really makes no difference what man has done to the relics of the past; or what arguments can be made about history, or idols or religious religion. The important thing to remember, above all else, is: The tomb is empty because our Messiah is risen! Rejoice! 
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
