Rise Up! Wake Up, My People!

Isaiah 51: 9 Wake up, wake up, O Lord! Clothe yourself with strength!
    Flex your mighty right arm!
Rouse yourself as in the days of old
    when you slew Egypt, the dragon of the Nile.
10 Are you not the same today,
    the one who dried up the sea,
making a path of escape through the depths
    so that your people could cross over?
11 Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return.
    They will enter Jerusalem singing,
    crowned with everlasting joy.
Sorrow and mourning will disappear,
    and they will be filled with joy and gladness.
12 “I, yes I, am the one who comforts you.
    So why are you afraid of mere humans,
    who wither like the grass and disappear?
13 Yet you have forgotten the Lord, your Creator,
    the one who stretched out the sky like a canopy
    and laid the foundations of the earth.
Will you remain in constant dread of human oppressors?
    Will you continue to fear the anger of your enemies?
Where is their fury and anger now?
    It is gone!
14 Soon all you captives will be released!
    Imprisonment, starvation, and death will not be your fate!
15 For I am the Lord your God,
    who stirs up the sea, causing its waves to roar.
    My name is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
16 And I have put my words in your mouth
    and hidden you safely in my hand.
I stretched out the sky like a canopy
    and laid the foundations of the earth.
I am the one who says to Israel,
    ‘You are my people!’”

My holy people; the day of victory, the day of conquest, is at hand. Shake off the dust. Raise up in the power of Holy Spirit. Receive My Breath and begin to move forward in Me, for you have suffered at the hand of the oppressor long enough, you are Mine.

To those who have endured, who have not sworn deceitfully nor forgotten My Name: Take courage, for the promises are sure and the things I have told you are not fables, but they are in fact the things of My Great Heart. The world and religion would both whisper in your ear that you are foolish for listening to Me, but this is in fact what will save you. Knowing Me and My sure salvation is what will save you. Not abundance of things nor palaces of gold, but truly knowing Me is what real living is all about.

I am for you simply because you are Mine. You are My sons and daughters, called out from a world that hates Me furiously. Called to take their position at My side; princes and princesses of My Kingdom. All that is Mine, is given to you. You have no need, for in the abundance of all that the world and religion appears to have; truly they have nothing compared to you, My love.

I gave you My broken body. I gave you My poured-out blood. I gave you all that was Me, in order for you to become all I have hoped you would be. I have dreams for you, My love. I dream of how you may fulfill Father's will and destiny by becoming all He has foreordained you to be. There are great things, beautiful things, that you were created for, you were created to become. Yield to the moving of Holy Spirit. Receive My liquid love for you, in order that you become the reality of My dreams, the manifestation of My dreams. By doing so, you will bring much fruit to Father's glory. Run with Me.

You must once and for all deal with the sin that so easily besets you: fear. Fear is your worst enemy. It continually robs you of My shalom. Fear causes you to become frozen, to become still, in moving with Me. Fear stops your journey with Me and instead causes you to focus only upon yourself. Fear is the greatest manifestation of selfishness there is. Therefore come out of fear, into the knowing of My love for you and for those around you. You were created to rise above fear and ride on the wings of Holy Spirit. You were created to be and become an accurate expression of Me in the earth.

Isn't it time to lay down all the foolish things that religion and the world have told you? Isn't it time to see the real moving of Holy Spirit; raising the dead, curing weaknesses, driving out devils, healing every sickness? Isn't it time to fulfill My dreams instead of listening to the limiting lies of fear planted by religion and the world? Then turn your whole heart to Me. Return to the place of believing what I told you in times past. Turnaround from the lies you have followed and once again follow Me instead. Listen to My still, small voice, instead of the booming sounds of religion and the world. Your adversary roams about like a lion; I have come to abundantly save. Choose this day, who you will serve.

My love, there are just a few times in history that I intervene in such a way as I am doing at this time. I am reaching down and changing the direction of many at this time. Therefore listen. I am moving with a fresh outpouring of Holy Spirit. I am disrupting nations and calling them to serve Me. I am restoring what is broken down, in order that My redeemed may truly rule for Me. I am doing more at this time than most realize. Wake up. Rise up.

I Stand As Pro-Life!

Country singer Kenny Chesney’s alleged commitment to his pro-life stance was once translated into a popular song called, “There Goes My Life.” His 2003 single about a teenager preparing to become a father, has been lauded as an anti-abortion, pro-fatherhood anthem.

I stand as Pro-Life!

Easter or Ishtar?

The word Easter appears once in the King James version of the Bible.Herod has put Peter in prison, "intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people" (Acts 12:4). Yet in the original Greek text the word is not Easter, but Pesach, that is Passover. So why was the name changed? Please read on, and remember Exodus 34:14; For you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
"Asherah" the Greek form of this word from the Septuagint is "Astarte", who is the Babylonian goddess of the sea, sea being symbolic of people, and consort of the god El. She was the mother of several gods, including Ba'al, the Babylonian god of the sun. 

These deities were soon adopted by the Canaanites when they named these female deities the Asherah or Asherim. These deities were made of wood carved from a type of evergreen tree, or often they were set up in Canaanite homes as full trees cut down from a forest. The Asherim normally were highly acknowledged during two specific occasions. 

First and foremost, they were the fertility gods of the spring equinox, when the days and nights were approximately the same in length, signifying the beginning of living things growing for the summer season. A very common practice in the Canaanite religion was performed on the first Sunday of the equinox. The families would face east to await the rising of the sun, which was the chief symbol of the sun god, Ba'al. Later on during the day, the children of the Canaanite parents would often go and hunt for eggs, which were symbolic of sex, fertility and new life. It was believed that these eggs came from rabbits, which in the pagan world were symbolic of lust, sexual prowess and reproduction. 

The Canaanites, however, were not the only ones who worshiped rabbits as deities. The Egyptians and the Persians (Babylon) also held rabbits in high esteem because they believed that rabbits first came from the divine Phoenix birds, who once ruled the ancient skies until they were attacked by other gods in a power struggle. When they were struck down, they reincarnated into rabbits, but kept the ability to produce eggs like the ancient birds to show their origins.

Other stories concerning the egg rose later in the Middle Ages by the Anglo-Saxons, where they believed the origin of the Universe had the earth being hatched out of an enormous egg. Decorating eggs came about to honor their pagan gods and were often presented as gifts to other families to bring them fertility and sexual success during the coming year. And secondly, they were highly worshiped and celebrated during the winter solstice. As according to Jer. 10:1-5; Is. 40:19-20; 41:7 and 44:9-20, the pagans would go out into the forest and do one of two things. Either they chopped down a tree and carved a female deity out of it, or they would simply bring the tree into the house and decorate it with gold and silver ornaments symbolizing the sun and the moon while nailing a stand on the bottom so it would not totter or tip over.

Out of this practice came many other variations of these pagan festivals until the Roman Catholic Church adopted the Asherah worship and named it EASTER around 155 A.D. According to the CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA, Easter was named after a pagan goddess of the Anglo-Saxons named Eostre, the goddess of the dawn. A great controversy arose between the Catholic Church and the Greek Orthodox Church in 325 A.D. on whether to celebrate Easter on Sundays or on whatever day the Jewish Passover fell upon. Unfortunately, the Greeks lost a lot of followers and the Catholics contended that keeping Easter on Sundays would stimulate the practices of both the Christian world and the pagan worshipers. 

Note that the word CATHOLIC means "universal" or "one world" in thought, concept and practice. Hence, since the original practice of Asherah worship we now have in our time the celebration of Easter, a counterfeit holiday to the true Christian festival of the Passover which was instituted in the Bible and completed in the New Testament when Christ died on the cross as our Passover Lamb.
"...For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us."

God Knows

Today we struggle, we hurt, we are lonely.
We are sick, crippled, blind and walk with a crutch.
We cry, we mourn and we fall on our knees.
In times like these we need someone to pat us on our back, hug us, lend a hand and pick us up.

Here is a powerful and beautiful video of the One who knows....

God Knows

All For the Want of a Nail


For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

This proverb has been on my mind a lot lately, especially when I hear people complain that they are only one person and, as such, cannot make a difference in the battle for freedom. In truth, every action, every effort, every sacrifice, no matter how small, adds power to the total force, and we never know in advance if any particular one will be decisive.

I mention this because reaching out to one person, although seemingly unimportant by itself, could be the decisive act in our movement. We never know if that person will become a freedom dynamo and a catalyst for activating thousands or even millions of their countrymen.

 And that leads me to the purpose of this message. We need to reach out to more people and do it quickly. We need to light thousands of new candles every day. Even though we know that most of them will remain as single points of light (which is excellent by itself and essential for our goal), we also know that some of them will become virtual torches and start wildfires of enlightenment.

Fortunately, we have the tool to reach those people, and it's already in your tool box. Unfiltered News is aimed at those who know they are not getting the whole truth from the major media, are indignant over corruption in high places, and want to get government off their backs. Admittedly, the majority of the population may not fit that profile, but a sufficiently large segment does, and the leaders we seek will come from those ranks.

Truth Is Marching On!

1Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
But he who hates reproof is stupid.
A good man will obtain favor from the Lord,
But He will condemn a man who devises evil.
A man will not be established by wickedness,
But the root of the righteous will not be moved.
An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,
But she who shames him is like rottenness in his bones.
The thoughts of the righteous are just,
But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.
The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,
But the mouth of the upright will deliver them.
The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
But the house of the righteous will stand.
A man will be praised according to his insight,
But one of perverse mind will be despised.
Better is he who is lightly esteemed and has a servant
Than he who honors himself and lacks bread.
10 A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal,
But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.
11 He who tills his land will have plenty of bread,
But he who pursues worthless things lacks sense.
12 The wicked man desires the booty of evil men,
But the root of the righteous yields fruit.
13 An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,
But the righteous will escape from trouble.
14 A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his words,
And the deeds of a man’s hands will return to him.
15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.
16 A fool’s anger is known at once,
But a prudent man conceals dishonor.
17 He who speaks truth tells what is right,
But a false witness, deceit.
18 There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword,
But the tongue of the wise brings healing.
19 Truthful lips will be established forever,
But a lying tongue is only for a moment.
20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,
But counselors of peace have joy.
21 No harm befalls the righteous,
But the wicked are filled with trouble.
22 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
23 A prudent man conceals knowledge,
But the heart of fools proclaims folly.
24 The hand of the diligent will rule,
But the slack hand will be put to forced labor.
25 Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down,
But a good word makes it glad.
26 The righteous is a guide to his neighbor,
But the way of the wicked leads them astray.
27 A lazy man does not roast his prey,
But the precious possession of a man is diligence.
28 In the way of righteousness is life,
And in its pathway there is no death.

Call Out To Me

 Jeremiah 33:1-3
1 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying,Thus saith the Lord the maker thereof, the Lord that formed it, to establish it;  the Lord is his name;Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

My holy people; don't you know that I am He that desires to pour out favor and blessing upon you, so that you will be a beacon of My glory to the lost and dying world around you?
It is time. It truly is the time to call out to Me. Cry out with your whole heart. Do not spare, but pour out your heart at this time. With all that is within you, call out to Me and see what I may do, for now is a time appointed for Me to demonstrate Myself great in and through your life.
Situations and circumstances have led to an unfolding of My grace at this time. You have gone through much. You have endured much. Now it is time for the unveiling of what has been hidden to you, in order for My glory to be seen and for great fruit to be produced for Father's glory. Truly as you cry out to Me at this time, as you call out to Me, great and mighty things will be shown to you: Things that will cause a new situation to be produced, to be created, for Father's glory.
Time and times have produced this timing of My grace for you. Do not hold back, but call out to Me with your whole heart at this time. My grace, My mercy and My favor will open a way for you that none can deny. I will open before you the pathway to nations. I will open before you the needed relationships and access to leaders of nations, of government, and of business. No longer will you be limited to doing what is in your own capability, but you will be given access to resources and people to cause My Kingdom to come to a much larger group of people. Do not hold back; truly call out to Me with your whole heart at this time.
The building of trusted relationships, the enduring of severe trials and sufferings, the use of gifts of miracles and healings and a fresh appreciation for My grace at work in your own life has led to this unfolding of the season you are now in. It is not by chance or by happenstance that you find yourself at this place. This has been the product of My enduring grace and mercy upon your life. Rejoice, do not spare, celebrate for what I am doing in you is now producing a good work unto Father's glory: a work that will endure, producing fruit that will remain.
Provision, blessing and enduring grace will be found in the days ahead: Great and mighty things that you have not known, but that you will know. I am about to shower you with waves of My grace and mercy. You will be overcome by it. You will be overwhelmed by it. Now is the time of My blessing. Call out to Me.

How Great Thou Art

He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. He is the Keeper of Creation and the Creator of all. He is the Architect of the Universe and the Manager of all time. He always Was, He always Is, and He always will be, Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated and never Undone!

He was bruised and brought healing, He was pierced and eased pain, He was persecuted and brought freedom, He was dead and brought life, He is risen and brings power, He reigns and brings peace.

The world cannot understand Him, the armies cannot defeat Him, the schools cannot explain Him, and the leaders cannot ignore Him.

Herod could not kill Him, the Pharisees could not confuse Him, the people could not hold Him. Nero could not crush Him, Hitler could not silence Him, The New Age cannot replace Him, and Donahue cannot explain Him away.

He is light, love, longevity, and Lord. He is goodness, kindness, gentleness, and God! He is holy, righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure. His ways are right, His word is eternal!

His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me. He is my Redeemer, He is my Savior,  He is my Guide, He is my peace. He is my joy, He is my comfort, He is my Lord, and He rules my life!

I serve Him because His bond is love, His burden is light, and His goal for me is abundant life. I follow Him because He is the Wisdom of the wise, and the Power of the powerful!

The ancient of days, the ruler of rulers. The leader of leaders, the overseer of the over comers, and the Sovereign Lord of all that was, and is and is to come. And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size,
His goal is a relationship with ME!

He will never leave me, never forsake me, never forget me, never overlook me, and never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!

When I fall, He lifts me up. When I fail, He forgives me. When I am weak, He is strong. When I am lost, He is the way!

When I am afraid, He is my courage. When I stumble, He steadies me. When I am hurt, He heals me. When I am broken, He mends me. When I am blind, He leads me!

When I am hungry, He feeds me. When I face trials, He is with me. When I face persecution, He shields me.
When I face problems, He comforts me.

When I face loss, He provides for me. When I face death, He carries me Home. He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and every way!

He is God, He is faithful. I am His, and He is mine! My Father in Heaven can whip the father of this world.
So if you are wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...He said it and that settles it!

God is in control, I am on His side, and that means all is well with my soul!

Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him I can do all things. Philippians 4:13

Woes & Judgement

Isaiah 5:8 Woe to you who add house to house
    and join field to field
till no space is left
    and you live alone in the land.
The Lord Almighty has declared in my hearing:
“Surely the great houses will become desolate,
    the fine mansions left without occupants.
10 A ten-acre vineyard will produce only a bath of wine;
    a homer of seed will yield only an ephah of grain.”
11 Woe to those who rise early in the morning
    to run after their drinks,
who stay up late at night
    till they are inflamed with wine.
12 They have harps and lyres at their banquets,
    pipes and timbrels and wine,
but they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord,
    no respect for the work of his hands.
13 Therefore my people will go into exile
    for lack of understanding;
those of high rank will die of hunger
    and the common people will be parched with thirst.
14 Therefore Death expands its jaws,
    opening wide its mouth;
into it will descend their nobles and masses
    with all their brawlers and revelers.
15 So people will be brought low
    and everyone humbled,
    the eyes of the arrogant humbled.
16 But the Lord Almighty will be exalted by his justice,
    and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts.
17 Then sheep will graze as in their own pasture;
    lambs will feed among the ruins of the rich.
18 Woe to those who draw sin along with cords of deceit,
    and wickedness as with cart ropes,
19 to those who say, “Let God hurry;
    let him hasten his work
    so we may see it.
The plan of the Holy One of Israel—
    let it approach, let it come into view,
    so we may know it.”
20 Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil,
who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
    and sweet for bitter.
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    and clever in their own sight.
22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine
    and champions at mixing drinks,
23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
    but deny justice to the innocent.
24 Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw
    and as dry grass sinks down in the flames,
so their roots will decay
    and their flowers blow away like dust;
for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty
    and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore the Lord’s anger burns against his people;
    his hand is raised and he strikes them down.
The mountains shake,
    and the dead bodies are like refuse in the streets.
Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away,
    his hand is still upraised.
26 He lifts up a banner for the distant nations,
    he whistles for those at the ends of the earth.
Here they come,
    swiftly and speedily!
27 Not one of them grows tired or stumbles,
    not one slumbers or sleeps;
not a belt is loosened at the waist,
    not a sandal strap is broken.
28 Their arrows are sharp,
    all their bows are strung;
their horses’ hooves seem like flint,
    their chariot wheels like a whirlwind.
29 Their roar is like that of the lion,
    they roar like young lions;
they growl as they seize their prey
    and carry it off with no one to rescue.
30 In that day they will roar over it
    like the roaring of the sea.
And if one looks at the land,
    there is only darkness and distress;
    even the sun will be darkened by clouds.
