Who’s Proprietor of the House?

Those who claim to be true believers of Jesus Christ follow the teachings of The Holy Bible. 

If you say you are a believer in Jesus Christ, and are connected and led by the various modes of the popular, posh, prosperity players, preachers who prophesy out of their own poisoned spiritual pit like a cobra fanned outward to engage the tune and captivate in vision, its victims with the dance and the mesmerizing glance, and once captivated, its venom blinds and thus entwines itself from view in its basket and once the tune is played, you will be dismayed and deprived of your own sound spiritual mind!

Instead of preachers and prophets who seek and save the lost, they proselytize persons into their posh, prosperous, professional, poisonous, provocative, and deceptive dance, promoting their vice daily with inoculations to be sure it is kept packed and hidden for their approval to build upon their vision as The Proprietor of their own building with all sorts of deceptive signs, wonders, and miracles.

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.”   Matthew 23:15 NKJV.

Those who claim to be true believers of Jesus Christ follow the teachings of The Holy Bible.  We are accountable to know and preach the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to have a personal relationship with him! Having a relationship with Jesus isn’t about the size of a building or arena!

Never in history has Christianity been a popular message.  We must point people to the truth of God’s Word only and live our lives by that.

A lot of what is seen as popular on Christian radio, television, internet has promoted a lifestyle of worldly extravagance! When we ask God to teach us, and we read and study The Holy Bible, it shows a very different way of life and A lifestyle of picking up our cross daily and following The LORD.

Instead of building the kingdom of God many are building the kingdom of their own making, backed by Hell!

Please do not misunderstand me, you can be in meetings, and you will feel things, you will experience spiritual activity that is why we must understand what New Age is and the threat it has to the true moving of God’s Spirit.

There is a false spirituality involved with some of these popular people!  If it were possible the very elect would be deceived. (Matthew 24:24)

“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. or nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)  Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  Behold, I have told you before.”  
Matthew 24:5-25 KJV.

Let no one fool you! Our walk with Christ is a narrow one and few there be that find it. Popularity or huge gatherings are not the fruit or proof that God has his stamp of approval on those gatherings, meetings, or churches.

Nor seemingly signs, wonders, and miracles either.  Satan will always counterfeit real signs, wonders, and miracles.

Today I had a man of God ask me “What do you do in ministry and what is your calling?”

The only thing I could say was, “I am simply a servant of Christ Jesus the Messiah.”

I do not like titles, I shy away from them. However, men call me this and that, but in my heart and mind I am simply a servant and handmaiden of The LORD.

Everything we do in life is because of Jesus not man.  We must seriously look inwardly and ask ourselves what our motives truly are.  Why do we act the way we do?

You can have Jesus Christs’ name attached to anything, but it doesn’t mean He approves of it.  Satan and his demons know God’s Word well and are very clever.

They twist the scriptures to mean exactly what they want them to mean.  The devil isn’t stupid either and when he sees Jesus or God’s name on it, he will work feverishly to bring corruption.

If man has been corrupted and is building a kingdom to man with God’s name on it, Satan works quickly so that he will rule and reign in that faulty environment.

There will be spirit, gifts, and all sorts of manifestations, but if it is not based on God’s Word, we must reject it.

New Age has all the marks of a spiritual experience with God! It looks, feels, smells and the teaching or preaching is a rainbow of dreams caught up in a spiral of deceit as they soak away in a self-medicating way stating it is God’s presence!

That is why God’s Spirit moves on! When the cloud moves, we move with God, not the other way around.

We need to pull away and get back to the basics of prayer, fasting, and time spent in study with the Word of God.

Man’s agenda is to build their own kingdom and Satan will side with that to help build it because it is mixture and strange fire.

We must ask ourselves, am I building God’s Kingdom or mans?

Pride is the opposite of humility.  I believe that humility is the sign of a true minister and leader in the body of Christ!

Whom Are We Yoked With?

During prayer I had a vision of yokes, however, these yokes were odd, as these were sheep yoked with goats!

During prayer, I had a vision of yokes, however, these yokes were odd, as these were sheep yoked with goats!

I was very alarmed when I saw this, and I knew instinctively that The LORD is going deeper into the motives of the heart and home, in stirring up the dregs, and exposing things that have been hidden a long time.  God is knocking on doors of the heart and home.

I knew within myself that this is another layer of “exposure” that is being peeled away.

This layer is not for God to see, because He sees everything.  No, this is happening so His People will see and understand.

God is just and right, and He reveals His Secrets to His Servants the prophets, so The Body of Believers may understand what is happening.

God speaks to His Servants, the prophets, in advance, so they can see His Justice and warn the people to prepare accordingly.

This “exposure” is happening worldwide, by those who confess they are true Believers.  Yes, this is happening in their very own hearts and dwellings!

“Surely The LORD God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.  A lion has roared!  Who will not fear?  The LORD God has spoken!  Who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:7-8 NKJV

The secrets of God are revealed for a reason.  Not only to reveal His Justice and Mercy, but to instruct us and to warn us when we stray, and to speak of things that are yet to come.

When a lion roars, it can cause fear but gets the attention of all who hear.  When God roars, the fear is not a tormenting fear to His people, but it is the sound to return to Holy Reverence.

There are times when things are hidden in us that we are not aware of, but The LORD’s Desire is to bring us back into alignment with Him.

I am alarmed and disturbed by what I can see!  There are many who confess they are a believers in Christ, yet who never pray or pick up their Bible to read or study it.

How can anyone have any understanding of God’s Will without His word?

How can a person be ready for what is coming, when we fail to seek The LORD and find His Will for our lives?  We cannot separate Jesus from The Word!

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”   John 1:14 NKJV

The Word of God, The Holy Bible is our Life and Eternal Perseverer!  None of us remains in one position in life, even if we don’t move, we are moving!

Life is a struggle, and it is our God-chosen course of study and story, as we meet the many challenges it brings.

Even when we stop, and want to get off, life keeps going and the clock keeps ticking.  It is God’s ordained Purpose and Will for us, that we develop a close relationship with Him in two-way communication with Him.

Once we find Him, we will grow as we gain a spiritual understanding of His eternal Book, The Holy Bible. Heaven and earth will pass away, but His Word will never pass away!  (Matthew 24:35)

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”   Hebrews 11:6 NKJV.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says The LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”   Jeremiah 29:11-12 NKJV

These are the days of unveiling the matters of the heart.  Everything about this life and eternal life has taught us the validity of this most Holy and Eternal book, The Holy Bible!

You cannot base any spiritual person, experience, feeling, gifts of The Spirit, sign, wonder, cloud formation, etc. or be able to know who are true or false ministers, are without knowing God’s Word!

“You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of The LORD your God which I command you.”   Deuteronomy 4:2 NKJV

“And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”   Revelation 22:19 NKJV

God told me early on, not to read or study anything about the occult, or other people’s supernatural experiences, and try to measure myself by them.

The LORD told me not to seek out the depths of Satan, but to seek Him out (God) and then He would tell me what I need to know about Satan.

There is so much churchy New-age supernatural stuff that goes on, and if we do not have a strong relationship with The LORD, it will be very easy to be deceived.

When you are deceived, you do not know it!  But when Christ shines the light on it, you better run, run, and run to God’s Word!

The former statement is true for every Spiritual leader, Godly Office, or gifting — these will always point you to Jesus Christ and His holy Word — The Bible!

To know God’s Voice, comes through familiarity by knowing The LORD in intimacy in prayer and fellowship with Him, alone in our secret place.  We are all called to know The LORD intimately.

Regardless of how we will glorify The LORD, whether it is through life or death, we face what comes, knowing where our hope lies.

Even if it comes to losing all things, or pay the ultimate price as a martyr, we have His never-ending Glorious Eternal WORD — and Eternal Life!

“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.  Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.”   Philippians 3:7-11 NKJV.

The time is at hand when a greater and sharper measure of discernment is being released; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of The LORD will raise up a standard against him.

As true believers in Christ, we must get our eyes off man, and put our eyes back fully on and committed to our LORD and Savior, so that we will see through His eyes, the Great Shepherd of the sheep!

Many of you as you are reading this, this Revelation is happening right before your eyes!

I have been very disturbed by what I have seen, and moreover, as you read this, your eye will be opened to what is happening within your own home, Church, school, job, community, and Nation so we can pray!

However, we cannot stop and wait for someone who has chosen not to go.  God is calling each of us upward and onward!

You cannot lean upon a friend, a pastor, spouse, job, an organization — on absolutely no one!  When you stand before Jesus, you will answer for your life, not your friend’s life or your pastor’s life, not even your spouse’s life.

It is important to understand that if we lean on people instead of The LORD, we can lose our way and be found shipwrecked, because of unwise advice or counsel.

“Thus says The LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from The LORD. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited.”   Jeremiah 17:5-6 NKJV.

“Now look! You are trusting in the staff of this broken reed, Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him.”   2 Kings 18:21 NKJV.

I am so adamant about this, because the process is so subtle.  One day you were caught up with The LORD in prayer, bible reading, study and reaching others for Christ — he was showing you so much and you felt invincible Spiritually.

Then you go through a struggle, and you seek counsel from a friend, and then soon you begin to lean on the person.  It begins very innocent, to set you up so that you lose your edge.

As you lean on man, the days turn into months, the months turn into years, and it is all designed by hell so that you depend on the arm of flesh.

Why?  Satan knows the secret of our power with God.  He isn’t stupid, and his desire is to sway God’s beloved away from Him!

When we are driven by the staff of man, by accepting a mere human vessel to counsel by, and we forsake our closet or secret place of prayer, Satan has ensnared us into his web of deceit.

It was so gradual that it was hardly noticed, but soon you lose the fire bit by bit and once you are depleted, you feel like your strength is gone and cannot pray anymore unless you pray with someone.

At this point. we do need to seek out help to get delivered. or we will become shipwrecked.

Over the process of months — then even years — you have lost your first love relationship with The LORD, and it seems impossible to get it back, and many give up at this point.

We must return and choose to create a habit of rebuilding our Prayer Life, because it doesn’t come easy.

With so many distractions and the fight of our own flesh, we must ask God seriously for help!

It took time for our wick to smolder, and it will take time to develop our life source of oil through prayer and fellowship with The LORD, as we re-learn to lean only upon Him!

We cannot separate prayer from the Bible, because God confirms everything from The Word of God.  It takes time to establish a habit and a godly pattern, and you can feel overwhelmed.

But it is never too late to begin again, and to rebuild the walls and structure prayer brings.  We must become actively accountable to those God puts over our lives.

I remember the story of “The Hare and the Tortoise.”  The tortoise continued the route slowly but steady, and the hare wanted to run fast ahead and take his ease and sleep.

And then, while the hare slept, the Hare woke up and realized the Tortoise was too far ahead for him to make it to the finish line even though he was the swiftest. (The Tortoise and the Hare)

The race is not always to the swift nor to the strong, but unto them that endure to the end.

I want you to understand that God knows how vital it is that you commune with him in prayer and intimacy.

He is not standing over you with a ball bat to hit you!  His Love is what motives Him because He is God, and He is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth.

We are body, soul, and Spirit, as He is God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We must reach out to Him, for He is closer to us than we first believed.

It is through the communication of prayer and getting still and quiet before The LORD is our answer and He knows the secret of our power with Him.

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”   Romans 13:11 NKJV.

Making Sense of The Struggle — Part 2

The Son of Man came to the earth, not only as our sacrifice for all sin, but to show us how life is done.

See also, Making Sense of The Struggle — Part 1

The Son of Man came to the earth, not only as our sacrifice for all sin, but to show us how life is done.

For example, He taught us how to Pray, and He lived His life and obeyed.  He always did what His Father said, even when it had a huge price tag attached and the ultimate struggle He had to face.

Nothing in this life worth living comes from mediocrity.  None of the lessons one learns from growing in Christ, and in following his life, and ministry is futility.

Definition for Struggle: Make forceful or violent efforts to get free of restraint or constriction. “Before she could struggle, he lifted her up” Similar: fight, grapple, wrestle, scuffle, brawl, spar. (©Oxford dictionary)

From the beginning of time, there has always been a struggle.  Just like a mother struggles to bring forth a child into this world.  Anything good in life must come through a struggle.

Struggles are not easy, but once broken through brings strength to us and life.  Are you in a struggle today?

You have the goods, and you must understand that God allows the things of life to happen for His reasons, and our maturity.

From my own experience in the delivery room, I came to a place during transition labor that I seriously got up and said I do not want to do this anymore, as I tore the gown off my husband!

I literally wanted to get off the table and run!  I did not want to push through the struggle anymore!

If I had left that room, it would have been bad for the child and me.  Anything in your life that is good, you must realize somebody went through the struggle to bring that into existence.

For anything good to come in this life, whether it is spiritual, physical, relational, financial etc. is a struggle!

“Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says The LORD. Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God.”   Isaiah 66:9 NKJV.

My answer in having that child was not to run but to push through the pain and press through the struggle!  There are blessings from The LORD awaiting us as we press and endure the struggle.

From the moment of birth till the moment of death, we will struggle.  However, there is a choice we must make; to go through and ride the struggle and pain until there is a breakthrough.

Many people have been left behind, because they chose to resist the struggle and they remained in it.

The Struggle of our time must be won by taking the proverbial bull by the horns boldly, engaging it and saying, “I am going to do this!”

The Bible says woe be unto those were at ease in Zion. (Amos 6:1)

We are stewards over our bodies, and I don’t believe we retire from serving God.

Life is a struggle all the way to the end.  It is a struggle to wake up in the morning sometimes, just like it takes effort to strive for excellence in our lives.

The LORD has called us to live a life of excellence and represent Him and His Kingdom in this life.  We are ambassadors of Heaven and represent His Kingdom.

Thy Kingdom come they will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

You have heard the adage, if you don’t use it, you lose it. In my experience that is the truth.

God has not called us to just exist.  Even if we are disabled or in a chair, we can still be the best that we can be within those limitations.  The struggles in this life can make us or break us.

We must make up our mind, and properly determine our limitations, and do our best and press through to the promises!

If you cannot walk, get a cart to wheel you where you want to go.  If you remain fixed in your mind and remain in a chair watching television and going nowhere, you will be miserable.

We must resist resigning just to exist.  We never retire from Prayer or The Word.  No matter how old or what circumstances we find ourselves in, God has called us to be the best we can be in whatever condition we find ourselves in!

The LORD Jesus has called us into an exciting life of service with him, no matter how old we get.

In my personal experience, as long as I draw breath, I will not grow old gracefully!  I will fight every step of the way, through prayer with the help of The LORD.

Regardless of our limits, God will work with us where we are, and He knows where we are and our condition.

We can give in to depression or we can move with His Glory Cloud!  God’s Will for us is to thrive in whatever condition we find ourselves in.

We are stewards over our bodies, and I don’t believe we retire from serving God.  Because life is a struggle all the way to the end.

It is a struggle to wake up in the morning sometimes, just like it takes effort to strive for excellence in our lives.

Is your struggle more than you want to admit? If we do not adhere to the natural laws of God, we will suffer prematurely.

You are never too old for a New Beginning, and sure it will be painful to start, but you will gain strength and stamina if you press through the pain.

Suffering for the sake of Christ is painful.  However, if you choose to exist, he will leave you to your choices and the results of those choices.

God knows our heart and he will not make us do anything.  It must come from within our own heart to change.  We can sit in our easy chair watching television, eat, or sleep and go nowhere.

If you exercise, or go to the gym, and you use weights, your motive is to get healthy.  If there is no pain, there is no gain.

In other words, if you don’t face the struggle in your flesh, you will not get the gains you need to strengthen your body and soul.  Bringing your body under subjection to the Spirit is an act of discipline and an act of struggle.

God has made the way for us to be the best we can be at any age.

We were created to live life fully and to thrive.  Anything in this life worth living is a struggle to obtain.

We look at people at face value and wonder how they are so blessed, and we measure ourselves against each other when the Scriptures tell us not to do that. (1 Corinthians 10:12)  But honestly, we have no clue what those people went through to get to where they are.

God holds us accountable for what we have, not what we don’t have!  God holds us accountable for what we attain in His Word!

We are living in exciting times, and God has preserved us for such a time.

The true Church of The Living God will experience great struggles, pressure, and persecution.

Regardless of what we are faced with, we must remember that Jesus said, “If they persecute Me, they will persecute you.”

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father.”    John 15:18-24 NKJV.

The Vision of the Goat Head

America is headed for darker waters and ominous dark and sinister clouds are brewing, that will have national and international effects.

America is headed for darker waters and ominous dark and sinister clouds are brewing, that will have national and international effects.

In a Vision and Encounter, I saw and felt the barometric pressure drop very low, even to the ground, and everything was so still and silent.  It was eerie, that no twig or leaf moved.

Then as I looked above to the sky, I saw such dark billowing clouds gathering into this low pressure.

It was so thick and so unstable, and behold, as I focused on a very dark cloud, the only way I can describe it was like how a curtain is pulled back, except the canopy and curtain were the clouds.

Then suddenly the clouds were slowly pulled back, and what emerged was a Goat’s Head and it was perfectly formed with horns in the clouds.

Then I began to see a massive circular movement begin, and suddenly there was lightning, thunder, and great shaking in the heavens and on the earth.

I knew immediately that this dark goat represents Satan himself.

I heard the scripture, “Woe to the earth and the sea and all inhabitants, because the devil has come down having great fury, knowing that his time is short.” (Revelation 12:12)

Not only did I know that the goat represented Satan, but it also represented all those who love and serve Satan, and worship him and all idolatry.

The Satanic goat symbol dates to the ever-mysterious Knights of Templar, who were accused of worshipping an idol known as Baphomet.

Roman Catholic society decried it as a demon that demanded human sacrifice.  The”sabbatic goat” called Baphomet as the sigil was where Anton Lavey adopted Baphomet as the sigil of the Church of Satan in 1966.  The templar idol, plus “the infernal goat” is found in depictions of the occult, witches,sabbats, the ancient Egyptian “phallic goat” and the Devil tarot card. (See ©Wikipedia Baphomet or satanic goat)

And I also heard, “Time shall increase, and the pace shall become quicker.”

Even unbelievers, and those who have not Christ, can sense something is building up, something is about to happen in America.

With great swelling pride, Satan mocks and demonstrates and speaks of all his accomplishments in America and their allies.

He is openly performing a parade of his debauchery, and he speaks great swelling words against the Most High God!  For the enemy is mounting up an insurrection.

Satan and his cohorts have completely come out of hiding.  Everything is plain and naked before the eye!

For he has come to take possession of all those who have been given to him in idolatry and worship of idols.  For Satan’s plan of the ages has been unfolding quickly and has been calculated to the very detail.

One of his main goals is that the Antichrist and the false prophet must be wed, and become one.  Satan is in a fury of preparation for this marriage.

Every detail of his takeover has been a gradual line upon line, here a little and there a little.

Through the ages, Satan has sown death, error, deception, and destruction even upon those who call themselves The Church and Christian.  These are they who do not obey the full counsel of The Word of the Living God!

Now, Satan is gathering and commanding all those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly to worship him and to unite!

By accepting lawlessness and diversity, so that the central religious world Church must come together and lay down their differences, and be at peace with the world.

When resistance or questioning comes, Satan shall reveal his mark on those who have made a covenant with death, and when the overflowing scourge passes through, they say, “this cannot come to us?”

But you have made lies your refuge, and under falsehood you have hid.

However, in knowing God’s beloved remnant, Satan is releasing a hail of trouble, and he shall strive to wear out the saints of the most high. (Daniel 7:25)

The remnant must endure the fire and be faithful, even until the very end.  Only God knows the day and hour.

Satan, the arch enemy of The Kingdom of God, will try to change the times and seasons.  He is moving viciously and quickly to change laws in America, and the world.

“But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.”   Isaiah 28:13.

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”   Revelation 2:10 KJV

“Verily I say unto you, this generation will by no means pass away until all these things be fulfilled.” Matthew 24:34 (Read Matthew 24)

God is merciful, loving and kind, but we must understand that God’s Spirit will not always strive with man.

Evil has reached its apex and the stench has risen before Almighty God’s face!  In His Mercy, He must remove His Hand again and allow Judgment to come.

It is for His great Love and great Mercy that He removes portions of His covering Hand, because He is filled with Compassion, not willing that any perish, but that all would choose Him.

But we all know that all men do not want God, and they even shake their fist at Him, refusing His loving Kindness that would lead them to true Repentance and Eternal Life with Him.  Those who love God, hear the fullness of the Word and do it.

“See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.”   Hebrews 12:25-29 NKJV (Study Hebrews chapter12)

Having godly maturity, we must prepare and realize that resistance is truly futile!

Learning to be who we are in Christ and accepting the good, bad, trial, test, and the lessons we learn about our human nature makes up so much of our nature and character in Christ.

We must remember in our flesh dwells no good thing, and it is in our death to self is when we truly live!

Regardless of how we die to the flesh or die as martyrs to the cause of Jesus Christ, none of us know how we will glorify God in this life or death.

We must remain aware of the time and that God has given us everything we need in The Word of God, The Holy Bible.  Base everything in life, ONLY by that Word!

Living in escapism hoping that if we hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil we are okay.

However, I am afraid that many in The Church have taken a hold of escapism, in many forms, to dull their senses to what’s coming on the earth.

Regardless of what happens, we must understand that God is still in control, and we were born for such a time.

I do not believe you are reading this for no reason.  Many of you are going through the harshest and most tremendous trouble of your entire lives.

So many are trying to escape what they see and hear through the many avenues of distractions.  Self-medicating activities and elements only put off the inevitable.

We must face the facts, and when God puts it in our face, we must choose what we will do with those facts!

I would be in big trouble with God if I did not warn you of the impending storms.

To truly Repent, is to turn away from everything that grieves the heart of God, then find your fit within The Body of Remnant Believers, in Christ Jesus.
