Kingdom Come

God does love. God is love, and He is the God of all love. Love comes from Him. But He does not love everything and everybody. What God loves is what He made. Which includes the way He made it. What He made it to be and how He made it to be. It is this very manner of being, and very way of being that He is inviting us back into. We were born outside of it, and had no way back. Because of a mistake made long ago by those who came before us. No way back unless He were to provide One. And He did. And He does. For all who will receive it, which includes sticking to it.

God is not sending anyone to Hell. The choice has been given by God to men, and their own choice brings salvation or damnation. That’s what you say to folks who ask how could a loving God send people to Hell. The answer is – He is not. Grace is not given so we can do whatever we want. If you find what you are doing or not doing does not line up with what He said – you have to change. You promised that you would. That’s what Repentance is, a promise to change. Much grace is needed every step of the Way. Much grace is given. Grace is for people who repent. Not so that sinners can keep on sinning. If you don’t repent, there is no grace. Just Hell.

There is a deep and abiding misunderstanding in the atmosphere of religious christianity throughout the whole earth, over the meaning of a single word in the Bible. It has caused so much confusion and misunderstanding. Perhaps a better word would be deception, as it is part of the deception in the Last Days that Jesus warned us about. He told us again and again that there would be many teachers and preachers saying what people wanted them to say.

These teachers have crafted and shaped their sermons to cater to a highly distracted and self obsessed people. Addicted to lust and allergic to God, as one Pastor put it. Assuring them that if they accept Jesus without becoming like Him, they would be saved. That their salvation is by grace alone, they don’t have to do anything but show up to church and be entertained, if and when they feel like it. They don’t have to do anything but be saved. It is exactly what they want to hear. Almost all of what is known as the church today is made up of these people.

If you want to get the results that Jesus got, you have to preach the gospel that He preached. He preached repentance and the Kingdom of God. The two are not arbitrary, repentance is the very thing required to enter the Kingdom of God, as this world is on its way out. It is all coming to an end. It is the lack of understanding of the meaning of this word that is behind the exponential rise of Humanism inside the church, for almost a century now. It is the word world, and it does not mean people. People are included in what God made, but they are not all that He made. More importantly, in his current fallen state, man is not the way God made Him. Which is why He gave us Christ. So that any who would, could return to the way God made them. Instead of the way sin made them.

The atmosphere of our planet has multiple layers, just as the ocean does. The earth  has multiple layers within itself. Is it any coincidence that Greek being the most accurate language in the history of the world, has 4 words for world. Each of them different, yet complementing the others. So that when brought together they make up a whole. This is one of the reasons that God used Alexander to establish the largest empire in the known world, to spread a common language. Not since Nimrod led the rebellion against God at the tower of Babel, shortly after the flood of Noah, when God had to confuse the language, had there been a common one. That one was being used against Him, this one would be used for Him.

Aion is the first word, it’s where we get our word eon from, and it means age or fixed span of time of indefinite duration. The Hebrew word it was translated from in the Bible includes the duration being hidden or concealed. Because of course, it’s up to God how long He will give something to run its course. Timing goes with Authority. The second word is Ge which is the land as opposed to the water. Terra firma, solid ground. Every solid planet would qualify as Ge. But you would need another word entirely to refer to habitable earth, or inhabited land. And that word is Oikoumene.

So in just the first three we have a space of time needed for anything to exist in, the land itself as the thing existing within that time, and then the land being habitable so as to sustain life. But it is not until we get to the fourth word that everything comes together and is given its proper place ability and function, and that word is Kosmos. This is the main word for world used in the New Testament, including John 3:16, and is used almost 200 times. Most of them in the Gospel of John, where it is almost always referring to a system that is opposing God. It literally means the order and arrangement of things. If anyone who cares to would take the small amount of time to go back and read John chapter[s] 1, 3, or 14-17 and substitute the original Greek meaning of order and arrangement of things for the word world every time it is used, you will be shocked and amazed. You will get a revelation of God’s Truth in your spirit, and it will click. You’ll get it, you’ll understand – and everything will change.

Never again will you be blinded by this deception of Humanism crept into the church, of God loving people the way they are. That is nowhere in the Bible. Don’t believe me, go look for it yourself. God does love and God is love. But what God loves is what He made, which includes the way he made it. God does love man as part of what He made, but He does not love man or creation the way it has become through the corruption of sin. You do have to come as you are, but you cannot stay the way you are. Christ is not some remote esoteric ideal, He is what you have to become like. Everyone in Heaven will be like Him or becoming like Him on some level, before they get there.

For anyone who does not want God or doesn’t want to be with Him, well there’s only one other place to go. Don’t blame God, He isn’t sending anyone to Hell. They just didn’t take Him seriously. Well Judgement Day will change all that. It is this corrupted order and arrangement that Jesus came into. He came to destroy the old order that had been corrupted by sin and existed apart from God, and restore for those of us born in the old, what would be a new order. But is actually the order and arrangement that God has always existed in. He has invited everyone back into it, but we don’t have to come. That invitation will not go on forever, and is now at an end. If you are a Believer, then you are already in it. It’s not your job to get everybody saved, it’s your job to tell them the Truth.

In the second chapter of the Book of Daniel, a king is given a dream. When the ancient city of Babylon was the greatest city in the earth, it had a King who was the greatest king in the earth. His name was Nebuchadnezzar. For the people of Israel being held captive there, this time was known as the Babylonian Captivity. Daniel was among the captives. God, in dealing with Nebuchadnezzar, the pride of man, all kings and all kingdoms . . . gave him a dream. In the dream he saw a huge magnificent enormous statue of a man, which represented the great kingdoms and empires from Babylon (then) to the time of the Antichrist (now). The different parts made of various metals and representing different kingdoms is explained in chapter two by Daniel, as he interprets the king’s dream.

If you haven’t read it or it’s been awhile, you should go read it. Suffice it to say the empires are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Alexander and Greece, Rome, with the ten toes representing the European Union (or its rough equivalent) as it will be taken over by the Antichrist. The statue in representing the greatest and most dominant kings and kingdoms, represents all of them. As well as man in all his pride trying to rule himself instead of letting God be his King. We are now at the very end of the time that God has given men to seek Him and His will for their lives, rather than following their own. The government of men is failing and the economy of men set up by themselves to provide for themselves . . . is about to collapse. Which will send all who don’t know the Lord – running into the arms of the Antichrist.

To facilitate the rise of the Antichrist the power of the West had to decline. All that was needed on our end was a president who would not only weaken our power and shake the hand of the Antichrist – but would play his part in enabling him to rise. We’ve had one for four years, he was re-elected last year. And it wouldn’t matter who it was, all of Scripture will come to pass. Each man simply chooses which side of God’s Word he is on. The decisions we make determine the direction we take, and the direction we take determines our destiny. It’s not some great mystery.

In the dream Daniel explains that the rock cut without hands smashes the statue to pieces, completely destroying it. The rock represents the Kingdom of God, and the place on the statue the rock hits, its point of Impact . . . is the feet of the statue. Which is the time we’re in now. Jesus isn’t coming back to take sides, He’s coming back to take over. For those who don’t know Him . . . it won’t be pretty. But for you and I, and any who choose to Believe – it will be the very thing we’ve been waiting for all of our lives. The Bible calls this looking forward to His Coming as the Blessed Hope. If you love Jesus then we’re looking forward to it together. He’ll be here momentarily.

Rapture

Not since Moses was given Torah (the Law) has there been so many people who knew the Law but were so far from it. Including most who call themselves believers. They will be staying for the Tribulation. It is this distance between people and God’s Law that the Bible means when it speaks of lawlessness in the Last Days. This is the very thing causing the love of people to grow cold. The natural human affection that people have for each other has been dwindling rapidly for years. Now the last of it is about to vaporize as the Bride of Christ is taken from the earth, and the remaining believers will become offended. Not just offended at God – just offended.

The Bible speaks of perilous times in the Last Days. Two of the main things that make them perilous is that men become lovers of themselves and lovers of money. We can see this in every area of the world and in every aspect of society. Self love, which is another word for selfishness, is what makes the days dangerous. Instead of loving God and loving His people – people love themselves. All of your life decisions flow either from your love of God or your love of Self.

We’ve all heard the parable of the sower many times, but do you know what the main point of it is, what it’s all about. It’s about four different kinds of soil and their response to a Seed. The exact same Seed was put into each soil, there was no difference in the Seed. No difference at all. The difference was in the soils (which as you know) represented the human heart. Three were bad, one was good. You could tell what kind of soil it was by the way it responded to the Word.

All of human history is divided into two parts: before He came and after He came. The first time Jesus came it was as the Lamb of God to sacrifice Himself for the sins of the world and offer Grace to any who would have it. In the 2nd coming He comes as a Lion to punish the enemies of God, which are simply those who did not believe Him and those who do not keep His Word. The gospel must be preached in the Light of His 2nd coming. For almost 2000 years, it has been preached in light of the first time He came. The second will not be like the first.

Wrath is just a word that means anger. There is a wrath being poured out on the earth right now in the form of the curse, and the Bible talks about it at length. It came about because of the fall of man. Most people live in it, but all believers are delivered from it as long as they stay in God’s Blessing, by obeying His Word. Wrath in this first sense is not something God has to put on people. It’s simply what happens outside of His Blessing. When a believer sins he steps into the curse, the gale of God’s Wrath that the rest of the world lives in all the time. When you stop obeying you exit the Blessing. People don’t like that, but they need to read the Bible. It is filled with many promises and great blessings. Every one of them are conditional. Every single one.

Now there is also a Day of Wrath which will come upon every one who has not believed God or kept His commandments, which occurs after the Tribulation at the return of Christ. The Bible calls it a literal day many times throughout Scripture, so there’s no reason to think otherwise. But one thing I want to make as clear as I can, is that the Day of God’s Wrath is not for believers. Even if it occurs during the tribulation it will not happen to believers who go through the tribulation. The wrath of God in that sense is one of the things that all believers everywhere are delivered from. There is one more wrath I’ll get to in a minute. Though many Christians will be going through the Tribulation, not one will go through the Day of wrath.

Those who preach pre tribulation combine the two in an attempt to justify their argument that believers will not be going through the Tribulation. In other words, they know the Bible says we’re saved from the wrath to come, so they just say the Tribulation is the wrath, so we don’t have to go through it. The Bible doesn’t say that – they say that. I taught post tribulation for the first 20 years of my ministry, that believers will be going through the Tribulation. But that’s not completely correct either. The truth is – they’re both right. In that, there will be followers of Christ taken out before the Tribulation, and there will be followers of Christ going through it. But the Scripture makes it clear that no believer will be going through the wrath of God. Some things are made very clear in just a few Scriptures, others can be only partially seen even when you look at all of Scripture.

Some translations use the word trouble or distress in place of tribulation, but what it is is a time of testing. It will be a trial for everyone who lives on the earth. We say trial by fire, which is actually from the Bible. Well, this is trial by tribulation. The Bible tells us that Jesus learned obedience through the things He suffered. This time of trouble will separate all those who say they believe in God from those who really do believe in God. Because the ones who end up staying and really do believe are going to have to hold on – tight. It’s going to get rough, everywhere. The Lord himself tells us that there have never been days of difficulty like these days in the history of the world, and there never will be again.

In 70 A.D. when both the Temple and Jerusalem were destroyed, not even a generation after Jesus had prophesied it – more than a million Jews died during the destruction. No fewer than 600,000 who had died of famine within the walls, were counted by the Romans as their corpses were thrown out the gates. The surrounding valleys were filled with their bodies, like so much earth. Of the survivors 97,000 were sold as slaves at paltry prices; 40,000 of which were freed because nobody bought them.

The commanding general Titus groaned and threw up his arms in horror and called God to witness that he was not responsible. He was the eldest son of the then emporer Vespasian, and it had never been their plan to destroy the Temple. The sacking of which funded the completion of the Roman Colosseum. It would seem one man’s destruction is another man’s entertainment. Titus refused to accept a wreath of victory, as he said that he had not won the victory on his own, but had been the vehicle through which their God had manifested his wrath against His people. These days of tribulation will be worse than those days. You won’t want to be here. But then, you don’t have to be.

The thing that will separate those who leave with Jesus for the Marriage Supper of The Lamb and those who stay for the Tribulation and a second chance to get it right is – how much they actually followed Christ. How much they meant it. Many have become believers with the exact same intention of some wayward young men choosing between jail time or the military – that of avoiding prison. Well Hell is a spiritual prison. God does not consider it some great act of love to choose Him over going to prison. Yet for millions of Christians, that’s as far as their intention on being Christian went. Many will make it to Heaven, but they will not be the Bride of Christ. The true ecclesia is the Bride, and only the Bride makes it out before the tribulation.

Parables are allegorical, which simply means there is a hidden meaning within them. None of the Disciples spoke in parables, only Jesus did. Which is completely acceptable as He is His Father’s Son, and in them He is speaking of His Father’s Kingdom. Which is so much bigger and brighter than anything we can understand in our current state with all of its limitations. Thank God it is said in such a way that we can get it – if we want to. If you don’t want to get Him, well then what He is saying is hidden from you. God’s Truth is hidden like this all throughout Scripture. But it is not hidden from us who Believe, it is hidden for us.

In the parable of the wise and foolish virgins who were waiting for the groom to show up, 5 went with the groom to the marriage supper and 5 were left behind. In this one, the virgins of course represented believers who were keeping themselves pure. A virgin is someone who is sexually pure. It did not say the 5 who were left were not virgins, or that they were not waiting. It said they were not ready. The difference between those who went and those who stayed was that the ones who went were ready when the Master showed up. They were prepared to wait by having their vessels filled with the oil needed to keep their Light shining. Well the Bible says that the world and all its ways are darkness, that all Christians are called to be a Light and that we need the oil of the Holy Spirit to be a light. On a daily basis.

To know what the Lord is looking for when He returns you have to go back to what He preached. Jesus preached two things during His entire ministry on earth. He preached Repentance and Kingdom. Repentance means to turn completely around, to change the way you think and act. Well most who call themselves Christians have not done that, but they want to get in The Kingdom anyway. Well a kingdom is not some enchanted mystical idea where you can come and go in what and how you please. It’s not a democracy. It is the dominion of the king. Kingdom is the realm in which the King’s will is being done.

Well God created the entire Universe, but His will is not being done everywhere. All of us need to change the way we think and act to enter His Kingdom. Many have changed, but most have not. Do you know why there is no crime or poverty or cancer in Heaven. Because God’s will is being done there. Heaven is a part of His Kingdom, but it is not all of it. So when you see a will being done that is other than God’s will, all you need to know is that is not part of His Kingdom. The fallen nature hates the simplicity of spiritual truth because it takes away all the hiding places.

Why will so many people from all over the world be following the Antichrist in the days to come. The more Ignorant you are of the Bible, the easier you are to fool. In the spirit realm you are always yielding to what you’re not resisting – and resisting whatever you’re not yielding to. So that you are always doing both at the same time, to different things. As a result of the fall we have a divided nature, and you must choose which one to side with. Your life is a result of the choices you’ve made. It’s no mystery why some will be going with the Lord before the tribulation and some will be staying to go through it.

Choosing is an act of the will, and your will is part of your soul. If you line your soul up with your body, that’s being carnally minded and it leads to death. If you line your soul up with your spirit, that’s being spiritually minded and leads to life and peace. There is no neutral plane where you’re not doing this. Inside ourselves, we are always moving closer to God or moving further away, but we are never standing still. That’s why coming to Him daily, and throughout the day is so important. Those who come to Him daily are the ones who overcome.

The coming Rapture is not for believers – it is for the Overcomers. Those who believed God enough, and proved it by obeying Him enough, to overcome the obstacles in their own personal life that were blocking them from entering in to this highest level of promise and reward. Those who are ready for Him to come. These are the ones who meant it. Those for whom Faith was not some vague idea, but a lifestyle of learning to trust Him while keeping the expectancy of His return alive. It has always been wide open to anybody and everybody who wants to get in on it.

Don’t believe me, Jesus himself says it again and again in Revelation chapters 2 thru 4, at the end of the letter to each of the 7 Ecclesia. He who overcomes, to him who overcomes, to him who overcomes. In chapter 3 verse 10, He speaks of keeping those people who stuck to keeping His Word – from the hour of trial that will come upon the whole earth to Test everyone who lives on the earth. Which simply echoes and is a reference to what He said in Luke 21:36. While warning all believers to stay alert and be ready for His return He speaks of the trial that is coming to the whole world, and tells how to get out of it. In doing so He foretells of the rapture. Avoiding this coming trial is only possible for those who judge themselves and keep free of the anxieties pressures and carnality of the world and of this life. He tells anyone who wants to know how they can escape.  It is the only one offered.

That is the cost here and now for not going through the trouble then. Going through the trouble now of putting your Flesh down, dying to your fallen nature. The crucifying of Self with all its demands and desires. These are the Overcomers. Jesus commanded it. But most have not done it. There is a suffering in following Christ at the highest levels of faith and obedience, but it’s not from cancer or poverty. God does not have those things. The suffering is in not getting your way, not living for yourself. Jesus said if we tried to save our life in this world we would lose the life He has for each of us in Eternity. But if we would lose our life in this world by pursuing Him and the life He has for us, we would save the life that He has for us in eternity. Remember that the Lamb’s Book of Life is something that names are taken out of, not added to. When this all started every name was already in the Book of Life.

We already know from the Word that many will be offended in the Last Days, and that even the love of the great body of believers will grow cold. The nature of man loves religion but it will not be made godly, it denies that you can be. That’s why the earth is filled with billions of religious people, but so few who know God. You have to have the help of the Holy Spirit just to want to be made like Christ, then you need more of that same help to become like Him.

The only people who Do what Jesus says are those who believe He is real. Not those who feel He is real, those who believe. Do the people you spend the most time with love God. Do they know His Word. If we are commanded to live by Faith do you know any who do – do you hang around them. Govern the amount of time that you spend with people or groups of people according to how much you want to be like them. The consequences will be eternal.

Spirit Led

An idea is not Direction. A feeling is not a Leading. The Holy Spirit doesn’t Lead you with feelings. When the Spirit leads you it’s with an unction, a quickening – in your spirit, not your thought life. That running conversation in your head – that is your thought life. It is completely different from the Voice of the Spirit, who speaks to you in your spirit not your head. If you are taking direction from your Head – you’re being Head Led. That is not God. The first thing you have to get right is the geography of the Inner Man, which is your Soul and your Spirit. They are different in themselves and  they do different things.

Your spirit is your conscience, the part of you that knows right from wrong, and good from evil. It is the part of each one of us that is most like God, for the Bible tells us that God is Spirit. We are made in His Image. You don’t have a spirit, you are a spirit – just like God. It’s important to be very clear about this difference between soul and spirit. They are both part of your Inner Man but they are not the same thing.

There are completely different words for soul and spirit throughout the entire Bible, in both Hebrew and Greek. There are completely different words in English as well, we’ve simply been trained for centuries to ignore the differences. It has cost the church dearly. Your soul is made up of your mind, will and emotions. None of them are Saved, they must be renewed daily with the Word. You can change your mind any time you choose to because you have free will. It is the way God made you. God gave us emotions, He has them Himself. But they are never supposed to Lead us.

The brain is the organ of expression of the Soul and is directly tied to all the places where you emote, relate and interact with the physical world. It is the place they are physically managed from – but your brain is not your Mind. Your mind is part of your soul, which is part of the Spirit Realm. Your mind in the spiritual realm expresses itself through the organ of your brain in the physical realm. You could remove your brain and it would not affect your mind at all. You would simply be unable to express yourself in the physical world. In a very real sense your soul would be your output if you thought of it in computer terms. Well your computer isn’t broke just because your monitor isn’t working.

Your spirit is not seated or centered in your head, it is seated in your bowels. Which is your stomach along with the intestines, and are the organ of  absorption. The place where the very substance that allows you to keep living is taken into your Body. That’s why the Bible says to “Guard your Heart (your spirit) with all diligence, for out of it proceed the Issues of Life.” Another word for your spirit is what many of us in Ministry call your seemer. As it is the place where things seem right or seem wrong. It is also called your knower, because it is where you Know all things.

If you yield to your feelings, to your thoughts, or to your wants – you will not walk in the Spirit. What you yield to determines the kind of Fruit you produce. If you can say I think, I feel or I want – you’re being soulical. Which is not being spiritual. You think inside your head (your thinker) and you know in your Spirit (your knower). That is actually the best way to describe most of the Leading that comes from the Holy Spirit most of the time – it is a Knowing.

But when you’re looking (or listening) inside yourself, don’t aim at your head – aim at your belly. It takes a little practice to get good at, but anybody who is Willing to know His Will can get good at it. Don’t fool yourself, everyone is being led by spirits. Only those who are Led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. Get in the Spirit first thing in the morning, and Be getting back in the Spirit throughout the rest of your day. Then you’ll stay in and be led by, the Spirit of God.

Love Not The World

The good of mankind is not to be found on this earth. Don’t you listen to the liberals and the secular humanists – all of them hate God! They hate Him. They want nothing to do with His Law, they have no intention of making Jesus their King. They can’t stand the thought of God being the Judge of right and wrong. The very idea of it is an abomination to them.

Since the end of the Victorian era a little over a century ago, all of the new ideologies of psychology, sociology and modern philosophy have bombarded first world society with a never ending barrage of worldliness and carnality. We’ve gone from almost all people going to Church and truly believing in God on some level, to most in the modern age not going to church at all, with some of them kind of believing in God a little.

These modern people are very different than the people who came before them. They are self centered, self promoting and filled with the love of Self foretold in the Scripture for the Last Days, written nearly two thousand years ago. Now we are at the pinnacle of their impact on the thoughts and attitudes of the people, and for the first time – their numbers are in the majority. Churchgoer or not.

They love Babylon, they love Sin, and they love having their own will with what they perceive to be their own life. Pray for them, be a witness – but don’t try to get them to like you. Jesus never did that. Never. He just walked in Love, and many liked it. Some did not. What He always did was to speak the Truth wherever He went.

Those who loved the Truth came in, and those who did not love the Truth stayed out – or opposed Him. If they hated Him, they will hate you. Don’t be troubled by it. If you live for God He promises that He’ll trouble those who trouble you. But it’s never our job to get back at those who’ve hurt us. Even though at times the desire to do so will be overwhelming.

Vengeance belongs to the Lord. That’s His business, and He’ll see to it. You just let His Light in you shine through you. If you’ll just stay filled with the Word and stay in the Spirit, everyday – you’ll do more for God’s Kingdom than most have done in a lifetime of their own best efforts with many resources and much money. Be a light by staying in the Light. God will take care of the rest.

The Interruption

The Day is coming and it’s coming quickly.  If you want to grow in the Lord, if you freely admit the need to come up higher and become more Christlike – then you must be brutally Honest with yourself right now, in what I’m about to ask. As a Prophet, I don’t have everything for you, no Minister does. I only have some things, but what I have for you is Essential. You need Everything the Lord has for you through any true Minister you’re connected to, in any way. Everything. From the Apostle and Prophet just as you do from the Evangelist, the Pastor and the Teacher. You need all of what each Office of ministry has for you, we all do. You don’t get to choose them like flavors, they work together like a Body. You’re either connected to them, or you’re not. And it’s no accident that you get the Word from those who are connected to you.

So here’s the question. Are you ready for Jesus to come right now – this second. I mean are you really ready.  Are you. He’s coming just like that. If there is any hesitation or a slight panic you sense deep within yourself as you consider it – that’s in the Bible!  It’s what the Bible calls drawing back. You may even be getting ready for Him, but He’s not coming for those who are Getting Ready.  That hesitation is the very thing that would cause you to Draw Back. Which does not please the Lord, and would be bad for you. If the reality of the question shocks any, or you’re still in shock – you’re not even Getting ready for Him to come back. If that’s the case you need to repent. Right now. Because listen to me friend, the 2 main events in All of Scripture – are His 1st Coming and His 2nd Coming. One happened 2000 years ago, the other is right at the door. I mean moments away, and no I’m not exaggerating. I’m simply speaking the language of the Bible.

The return of Jesus Christ to the earth will not be as Savior, it will be as King. If He is not your King right now, then you are not one of those He’s coming back for. He came as Savior already, and you don’t get to make Him your King when He gets here. We’ve had plenty of time. Plenty. If more time would have helped the Lord would have given it. Length of time given is not the problem – the depth of our Rebellion is. In our Fallen Nature we are against God. We need help, much help – and he has sent it. Twenty centuries ago. Now He’s coming back to see who took the help – and to see who was just talking.

The only help He gave was the help to Change and become like Him. Most have refused this help. I’m not talking about being Saved now, I’m talking about making it out on the first boat. Most believers will be going through the Tribulation, but if you obeyed His Word – you won’t.  The Rapture isn’t for believers, it’s for the Overcomers, those who obeyed God.  The demons believe.  Those who still Believe by the end of the Tribulation will join us at His 2nd Coming. Don’t believe me, search the Scriptures and check it out yourself.  Many many so called Christians will be shocked, literally. They thought they could work God the way they worked everything else in their life. Not a chance, God is not mocked remember. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about taking God seriously. Don’t be one of those who didn’t.

His Return will be an Interruption for everyone who lives on the earth, and the Bible says so. But for all who are not Ready – it will be catastrophic. It will surprise hundreds of millions of people who called themselves Christians. Not because they didn’t have a chance to get it right, but because they wouldn’t get it right.  They never really meant it. They didn’t Believe in Him or His Word – like that. One translation says that they would be religious, but reject the power that could make them godly. Another says they will appear to have a godly life, but they will not let it’s power change them. Just about 2 years ago the Lord put it on my heart to confront every member of our Ecclesia [during a sermon] with that question. Surprisingly, if the Lord had returned then, none of us were ready within ourselves.  We could tell.  You can tell.  I am very glad to say that now, we are . . .

Before The Flood

Everything happening in the physical realm is determined by and a reflection of something happening in the spiritual realm, that’s the spiritual warfare the Bible speaks of.  There is a push right now in our culture and society to normalize cults of Christianity, just as we have legalized much criminality, for decades.  Like the murdering of babies in the womb, or suing others for money because you did something stupid.  The Bible tells us that right before the Lord returns, the world will become like it was in the days of Noah.  Before the flood.

This current administration is the most liberal in our history, and like the one in the 90’s – is headed by people who claim to follow Christ.  When no trace of the Master or the way He commanded us to live, can be seen in their lives.  You can tell the tree by it’s fruit, and the Bible says so.  The former President was openly and unabashedly a Christian, and declared himself one when it would be to his greatest disadvantage – before entering Office.  It is for this reason alone so many liberals hate him, don’t be confused about it.  None of this is about Ideas, it’s about spirits.  It is the fallen world uniting against God being the Judge and Jesus being His Messiah.  The one whom God has chosen to represent Himself.

God has already decided what is right and what is wrong, and men don’t like that.  They want to decide.  Well that would make them God.  He has also decided the One Way to get back to Him.  Men don’t like that either so they make up other religions.  Mormonism like its much older and much larger predecessor Catholicism, is a cult of Christianity, a perversion of it.  Don’t buy into the Lie that either of them are some alternate acceptable form of true Christianity, they are not.  Any more than sleeping with children, horses, someone of the same sex, or someone you’re not married to – are acceptable alternate life styles.  The Author of all Life disagrees, and says so all over His Book.  Anyone who does not believe and practice the Bible is not a Christian.  Anyone.

It’s a free world until the Lord gets back, and anyone can choose of their own free will to do what they want.  But you cannot call that following Christ, which always means something very specific and is clearly visible on multiple levels.  It has nothing to do with being perfect and everything to do with taking God seriously, wanting Him to be right.  Not wanting God to be right is why the nations rage.  All of them.  Like all good spiritual desires in a fallen physical world, it must be kept alive by feeding it. Especially in a world where everything is against God being right, because it against God completely.  You have to feed your spirit His word so it can stay strong.

So what do you do when you don’t know what else to do.  You believe God, that’s what you do.  And keep believing until He shows up.  That is what He told us to do.  Occupy till I come.  As a Prophet whose sole function as a Minister is to speak God’s Truth, I cannot tell any true believer to vote for a mormon.  Nor can I tell you to vote for a liberal who is not a moral man.  It is impossible for me to do either.  What I can tell you is that Righteousness exalts a nation, because that’s what He tells us in His Word.

Our nation has gotten itself into this predicament through its own wrong choices in our continuing rebellion against God.  When caught between a rock and a hard place, when confronted with a choice between the lesser of two evils – what do we do.  Well first you remember that we are almost out of  here, we have a King!  And nobody gets to vote for Him!  We are the ones who’ve chosen to bow to Him now, before He gets here.  Which pleases Him to no end because it proves that we Believe Him.  So this is really for those who will be staying through the next term.  We will not be.

Governments Fail, Economies Collapse . . Faith Stays

As we journey back through all of history for century after century, we can only travel back about 40 centuries before what we actually know – falls off a cliff. When we arrive at the place that is as far back as we can see with any certainty, we find that men are already being governed. As that great scholar of common sense G.K. Chesterton said, “The dawn of history reveals a humanity already civilized.” Where we hit the cliff of what we know is with Babylon and Egypt. Before them we have only fragments from Assyria, Sumeria the Chaldeans. Some cylinders, tablets and parchments. Everything beyond these few beggarly scraps found among the rocks is speculation. Pure speculation. The liberal academia won’t admit that, but all of it is made up.

Almost all of this making things up began during the Victorian era, when value and worth began shifting from people and their souls to things and the materials they were made of. It was a new twist on an old idea. Diminishing the value of people. Here it is called materialism. Trying to solve a spiritual need with something physical. It cannot be done. No matter how much you have or how hard you try. Now everyone has their car their house and their clothes, but they no longer have each other. What a shame, and what a sham.

It was never God’s plan. When a modern man views a city he sees the buildings and the streets, the cars planes and boats, and he is excited. God does not see it that way. He sees the people in those things. When foolishly attempting to explain how all this got here, what modern men have done is to invent a reason to explain a result. When we were little it was called make believe. Which means to make up what you want to believe. I don’t mean the cars and buildings, no one would be foolish enough to say that a scooter grew into an SUV or a kite evolved into a supersonic jet. Who would dare.

We all know they had to be thought out and designed, then built. It took specific effort and certain materials and great understanding. Someone had to do all that. No, I mean the really spectacular notion of how old the entire universe is, or that all people and planets came from nothing. That everything came from nothing. Not because it actually did come from nothing, who would dare say such a thing. But because they cannot bear for a moment to admit the only alternative, that all of it came from God. Who would say such a thing. People who hate God, that’s who. Now the enormity of all that they have made up has grown much larger than the things they were trying to explain.

This attitude and perversion of belief can be found in every facet of society. From changing ecology to failing economies, the nature of gravity to the necessity of destroying evil with war, men love to speculate while ignoring the obvious. It is part of our fallen nature. God gave us imagination, but He didn’t give it to us for that. Completely ignoring Him, while making up all sorts of things that do away with Him. What I want you to know is that the thinking of modern society is all pretend. The pretend has become bigger than the reality. We have been lied to about almost everything.

What we know of governments both ancient and modern, is that they fail. Civilization as we know it is a graveyard of failed governments, and we are at the top of the top layer. The Bible is a Historical Record and people often forget that. Nimrod was the grandson of Noah’s son Ham, who had been on the Ark with Noah for over a year. While the rest of the entire world was destroyed by the Flood for its wickedness. What that wickedness was will be mentioned later. Though the former wickedness was wiped out, it quickly gained a foothold again through Nimrod. Well Nimrod is the one who built the tower of Babel, and he did it out of rebellion toward God. He actually built the tower with the intention of it being a fortress against another flood, should God decide to do it again. Josephus in his most excellent and ancient commentary expounds on this a little more than the Old Testament does.

Beyond those we find that it was with Nimrod that the entire concept of we can do this ourselves without God, came into existence. His name means I must rise up while you go down. Lets pool all of your (the people below me) resources to carry out my agenda. Does that still go on today. Without a doubt. You know that it does. It is the very core from which all politics proceed. Every political campaign on every level, all government by all men has this means as its chief end. To pool all the energy resources and ability, with one man or a very small group, at the head. You go down and labor in your lower position to support a man in his exalted position of deciding what to do with it all. Being in charge. This is how it’s done. How it is played out in a fallen world run by a fallen angel who runs it through fallen men. Who think they are in charge, just as the fallen angel thinks he is god. While inventing their reason to explain a result, they even got rid of the devil. Now they’re trying to pretend as though evil doesn’t exist. Which isn’t going very well for them.

With Babylon comes the first city of man in his own little world which he built for Self. The system of commerce and trade to facilitate providing for him Self. As well as the religious cult built around the tower of Babel careening skyward, representing the exaltation of Self against Heaven. It was the birthplace of all three. Cities for self, the system to provide for and advance self, and the religion of self. Now we call the new version of that same old religion Humanism. The Bible says that a threefold cord is not easily broken. The Lord Jesus will break this one with the brightness of His Coming. We’ll see Him do it. He never came to start a religion, He came to give God a family. That’s what you and I are. True Christianity is God Almighty and His family. Abraham as the father of faith was the antithesis to all that began in Babylon. It is what he departed from, as he was standing right there. Abraham departed. Faith departs from Babylon.

God did not give Abraham religion, man gave himself religion. What God gave to Abraham was government. It was this very government that The Messiah was prophesied in Isaiah to be carrying on his shoulders when He arrives. Which He is doing for the Father. It was the custom in the East where the Bible was written, for sons to carry burdens for their fathers. Jesus is not coming to take over China, Russia or America as governments. They will not be here. God has His own government, and it is called a Kingdom. No other government will exist in the world to come, they are all man made and against God. The Bible tells us that the nations rage. Are they raging now. In the Psalms we are told why they rage. They are against God and against His Messiah. They are against God being the Judge of what is right and what is wrong, and they are against Jesus being King. They want to decide what is right and what is wrong for themselves, and they want to be their own king. It is a hijack. Nothing more than the lump of clay talking back to the Potter and telling Him how it wants things done.

Only the Government of God, which is the Kingdom of God will be here. That’s why Jesus preached it so much during His earthly ministry. So much so that all the people thought it would happen right then and there. He was carrying His Father’s burden. This is what the Gospel is all about. The coming of the Kingdom and our need to repent just to be let into it. Nobody gets to vote on Jesus. He is not running for president, He is the King. We don’t get to elect Him – He is letting us in. It is the people who come into The Kingdom by submitting to the Lordship of Jesus that have the right to exercise His authority in the earth. Only in Christ do we become the one ethnos, the one new man of Scripture. No worldly nation or individual can claim that authority by right of existence. Just because you exist does not mean that Jesus is your Lord, as a person or a nation.

Only the nations and individuals that have gotten under His Authority have some degree of that authority. The rest do not. Their histories do not matter. It is pride that caused the fall of Lucifer and man, and it is our pride that makes us think what one of us or all of us did outside of God, is of any importance. Only what God does matters, and He chooses the nations or individuals He will do it through. England had every right to colonize other nations as they brought them into Christ. From the rise of Elizabeth to the end of Victoria, she was the nation God was moving through. For 300 years. As the Light was fading in Britain, the Lord continued what He was doing through America. It has nothing to do with how righteous the nation or all of their practices. God will spare an entire wicked city for a dozen of His people who believe and trust Him.

Now as the Light in our nation begins to fade God has started moving in some of the Asian Tigers, only as they keep His Word. Especially in South Korea, and also in a huge underground movement in China. The Light of who He is and what He is doing is tied directly to obedience to His Word. Only by way of God moving through history does any history matter at all. When and where He was, what He was doing. The rest is irrelevant. That’s what it means to be God. He is not shy about it. People just don’t take Him seriously. Throw off all those foolish and ungodly notions of political correctness. That comes out of Humanistic thinking and He is not like that at all. God is not the goofy bureaucracy of the United Nations, He is the creator of galaxies. He is God and He is in charge. Of His plan and will coming to pass in the earth. Not all the junk He had to push through to bring it to pass. He is not keeping anyone out, they have refused to come in.

Man does have dominion over the earth, but only because God gave it to him. Not so that man could separate himself from God. He did it so that man could rule the earth under Him. Part of that dominion is the authority and the ability to redirect the resources of the planet. This was authorized by the Owner. The one who made the coal and the copper and the diamonds that are in the ground, as well as the grass and trees that grow on top. The earth and everything on it and in it are the Lord’s, and the Bible says so. He can give it to whomever He wants, and He did. We should be good stewards and are in fact commanded to. But our authority as His believers over His planet is not a question, it is another commandment from the One who made it. Just because you were born here does not give you authority. Man is fallen, the world is under a curse and the Devil runs it. God has provided a single way out, but you must accept His Authority before you can walk in it.

If you don’t like that then you need to go find another earth to live on, because this one is His. But if you’ll let Him be your God, He will turn you into a son. The word nation in the Bible comes from the word ethnos, which means race or tribe of people. Until fairly recently almost all of the nations that you see on a political map of the world were made up entirely of a single nationality, or ethnicity. Many still are. But a lot of the modern first world countries contain multiple ethnicities within the borders of their government. Which is usually made up of the single or dominant tribe (ethnos) in that country. Well the command of God to the first man and woman who are the father and mother of us all, was to be fruitful and multiply.

God saying this was not random poetry or beautiful prose, it was a commandment. There are 100’s of them in the Bible. God never speaks arbitrarily or without purpose, He always means what He says. He creates when He speaks. It is man who has made his own words to be meaningless and powerless. It would be a mistake to think that God is as trivial as the mankind that He made, has chose to become. From the very beginning God’s voice was to be the governing force which produced the mechanism of Fruitfulness within man, whom He set over all of His creation. Just like a musician blowing his own breath into an instrument produces a lovely sound. God breathed into man.

That lovely sound is the fruit of the two coming together, not of the instrument alone. God is the one who gave us the very things that make us fruitful. We cannot produce fruit on our own, fruit is an element of order. Man is fallen and the tendency of all things fallen is chaos. Chaos never tends toward order, order is always something intentional. Always. It was out of the former chaos that God established all of the order we now see, at the start of Genesis. Man produces various instruments because he himself is an instrument of God. Who quite purposefully did not give man everything so that we would need each other.

In Genesis 4 He gave various gifts to men; farming and livestock to one, playing of musical instruments to another, metal working and the making of tools to others. These things didn’t come out of nowhere. He did this so that men possessing skills talents and abilities differing from each other, would have to come together to get what they did not have themselves. God gave men the ability to collaborate cooperate and communicate to redirect the resources of the earth. They could not do it alone, but only as a collective.

In His Word this collective is called a body, which does have a Head. As it is a type of the Body of Christ, prophesied to come later. By the time we get to Genesis 6 we have men already becoming completely corrupted by separating themselves from that which made them Fruitful – the voice of God. Now they are thinking evil only all the time and they are multiplying without producing any Fruit. Something God never authorized. He told us to Be fruitful and multiply. This multiplying without fruitfulness is one of the main things that made the earth wicked, and how it became filled with wickedness. Anything that is not of faith is sin, and unbelief itself is called wickedness in the Bible. So don’t let your mind wander too far with how bad it got. Our definition of bad is very different from God’s.

It had to be drowned and all men were destroyed by the flood of Noah. Except for those 8 souls in the Ark. The biggest reason is the corruption of the bloodline of the entire human race by Lucifer and the angels who fell with him, in order to stop Messiah from being born through a woman. This is what Genesis 6 is speaking about where sons of God married the daughters of men. The term sons of God refers to angels in the Old Covenant, and the Nephilim were one of several half angel half human tribes in the earth mentioned in the Bible. Fallen angels and humans sinning a new species into existence. That’s something the heathen would love to put in a movie, if only they knew. All of Greek mythology is contained in verse 4, men of renown, the heroes of old. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the angels who sinned had names like Zeus and Apollo. Just sayin’.

Don’t choke on all this stuff go read the Bible yourself. It’s all in there. It talks about unicorns and fire breathing dragons as well. The unicorns will be found only in the King James. Make sure before you do though, to decide that the Word of God has final authority in your life. If you don’t do that it won’t mean anything to you and you’ll get very little from it. Listen in your spirit, that’s where you recognize Truth. If you want to know the Truth you’ll want to know these things. God is so much bigger than anything you or I could have thought up.

As a Prophet the main thing I do is speak God’s Truth. As a Teacher I explain and expound on things to win your understanding, to a certain degree. But you still have to Believe. The ancient world had the same problem as the modern world, multiple tribes multiplying without fruitfulness. No country has a right and no couple has the right to bear children without the resources and ability to care for them. Nobody. Doing such a thing is not a right it’s a wrong. Fruitfulness is not an option to consider when multiplying, it is a commandment. You have to bear fruit before you multiply. Otherwise your multiplying is not authorized.

The coming of Messiah had already been prophesied by the time all this happened. Lucifer tried this same corruption of the blood line after the flood without success. That’s what 9′ tall Goliath, his brother, and multiple other giants and tribes of giants listed in the Bible were the product of. The failure of Lucifer trying to stop the Son of God from bringing back the government of His Father. If you have a hard time believing in a God who is big enough to create with such depth of scale, then you’ll find it even more difficult to believe in each of the 100 billion stars in this galaxy and the 100 billion galaxies in the universe. And that they somehow appeared there all by themselves out of nothing. Even a handful of dirt didn’t come from nothing. Everybody knows that.

The reason so many people want the Government to solve all their problems, and want some Individual to meet all their needs is because – they are Faithless. Being without Faith is being against God. The failure of government and the collapse of economies is part of what has to happen for everything to come into place. What we’re seeing in front of our very eyes right now is that all those who won’t do it God’s way will be food for the Antichrist. They are being prepared for him like a meal. Jesus already came to give all men the chance to become like Him. Christ is the answer and the only answer, to everything. People don’t like that for many reasons, but one of the main reasons is that it requires faith to please God. It’s not that faithless people can’t get faith – many don’t want it. More precisely they don’t want to do what it takes to get it.

It’s much easier to live without faith than to live by faith. Faithless people always want someone else to take care of them so they don’t have to obey God and live by faith. What everyone needs to do is to get faith and stay in it. Live by faith and die in it. Faith is the only way to get where we all want to go. God has commanded that the just shall live by faith. It is impossible to please Him without faith. Jesus was raised for our justification, to justify us to make us just. You have to live in Christ every day in order to develop the kind of faith that He means,  so that He can justify you. Especially if you don’t want to get stuck here for the most difficult days in the history of the world. Jesus will not be coming for those who are getting ready, He’s coming for those who are ready. Stay in faith and you’ll be ready when He comes.
