Under Attack?

Many are under attack, and some are genuinely surprised that this is so. What about judgment is it that we just don't understand? Millions of babies are dead, largely because those who claim to be His would do nothing to save them. Most have more faith that God will bless them financially than that He will punish them for ignoring His laws. We are awash with those who believe sin is not an issue.

The hedge of protection has been removed. The evil one runs freely here and there, afflicting everyone in his path. That's what it means to be in judgment. Have I not been preaching that it was coming?

God is merciful, but He is no one's fool. There is a limit. We passed it when we elected a man who promised to fix some of the physical things; rather than, one who was devoted to Him. Now, we get to pay for that.

Repent. Seek Him and repent. There may yet be some mercy for us if we sincerely repent, and seek Him with great diligence; but you will have to get off your recliner and go to work. Do the job you were called to. Otherwise, wake up and smell the coffee. You would not have His corrective discipline. So, now we will see His wrath.

Sin and "Holy Things"

In the third year of the Jehoiakim, king of Judah, came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it. And the LORD gave Jehoiakim, king of Judah, into his hand with part of the vessels of the house of God; which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god, and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god. -- Dan 1:1, 2

Judah and Israel were two halves of God's chosen nation, but when they rebelled, God Himself had them practically... eliminated. For Israel He sent the Assyrians. For Judah He sent the Babylonians. Many died in those attacks, and others were carried off into captivity.

That's how serious God is about sin. He gives over those who defy Him for destruction. So when folks claim, "God won't punish me", the god they speak of really isn't the God of the Bible. No, He is impeccably holy, and does not partner with sin to the point of even abandoning the vessels of His tabernacle to the wicked.

This makes the idea of recovering things the Ark of the Covenant, the "Holy Grail", etc. rather foolish in my opinion. I realize that the hope is these things have power unto themselves. If that were true, though, He would never have allowed barbarians to have them. We know this from the story of Dagon in 1 Samuel 5.

My point here is two-fold:

1. Sin is a serious thing with God. So, serious that He will not look the other way even for "special" people. That's exactly who the Jews of this time thought they were, too special for God to punish.

2. Looking for things like the "holy grail", the "spear of destiny" . . . even the ark is not just unnecessary, but likely very foolish. Though the ark would have historical value, they are all just things. The power is in Him, not those man-made things. In addition, many of the items associated with Christ were likely created after His death in an effort to lay claim to His legacy.

Consider the grail. Christ lived the life of a common man. He didn't regale Himself in finery, or have a castle, wear jewels, etc. So, why would He drink from a bejeweled goblet? No, His cup would have been common, and the same would be true of everything else except the ark.

The ark is different because it was God's resting place in the temple. It was incredibly holy and incredibly dangerous. People died just for touching it. The Philistines died for daring to take it in battle. But's that the point. It's His. It was built specifically for Him. There's a disrespect inherent in deciding you'll just go look for it, and disrespecting the Holy God of Heaven can get you very dead. So, while I don't believe there's any power in the artifact itself, God still might take offense.

The bottom line is that none of these things are necessary for salvation. They don't need to be kissed, or adored, or any of that nonsense. That is idolatry. We need to focus on God, and put our time and effort into pleasing Him with our obedience.

Be Ye Transformed

Scientists now realize that repetitive actions build neural pathways. God tells us to remain or abide in Him. We are to devote ourselves to prayer, and meditate on His word. We are to ask, seek, and knock; and be about His work. God puts it this way:

And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. Rom 12:2

Whatever we pour ourselves into is what we will become. It is why you see the greater works of the Spirit in those who have devoted themselves to Him. He literally has come in and made Himself at home in their hearts.

This Morning's Prayer

O LORD, have mercy on us for we are a wicked people. Our hearts are full of selfishness, and our hands are lazy. We do not rush to do Your bidding. The innocent die among us in vast numbers while we rest in our pews, oblivious to Your calling. Our shepherds preach lies, and we love them for it. We see ourselves as educated and entitled. We do not accept that obedience to You is a necessity, nor favor subjecting ourselves to Your correcting rod. We ARE the Laodicean church. We deserve to be cast out.

In Your mercy, Father, have yet mercy on us. In Your wrath do not completely destroy us. Surely, Father, there are yet some within these borders to preach and teach Your word aright. Surely, there are some who are submissive, even unto Your rod.

Give these, Father, Your voice, and the let the word Your have given us be carried abroad to our brothers and sisters. Father, please, let some eyes be opened, and some hearts be broken that we might truly turn again to You.

I see Your judgment, LORD. You know You have made me to see it. I speak, but as You warned me, few listen. Even fewer hear. They have chosen to be deaf, and deafness You have given them. They desire not the truth. So, they cannot hear it. If they would hear, they would surely turn, and You would forgive. O, Father, let it not be too late for us to turn!

I weep before You. I plead at Your feet. These are my people, the brothers and sisters of my home. I ache that they might turn and I beg for Your mercy. Are they not children, Lord? Are their hearts not simple? Do they see Your coming in wrath against them? No, they think You will come to rescue them. It's what they have been taught, and they believe it. They do not see their own willful disobedience, nor how it has angered You.

Have mercy, Lord. Have mercy! Lay to my account their sins and let them repent. Let us once again seek You with sincerity, and be humbled by Your word. Let us cast out the wolves among us, and have nothing but the truth of Your word. Are there not ten remaining righteous, Lord? In all this vast nation, are there not ten?

We are dust in the whirlwind, dead where we stand. Without Your mercy to keep us; this nation will be no more. And no one will be able to say You weren't justified! But, Father, dear Father, have mercy for mine.

In Yeshua's name. Amen and amen.

Wake Up!

God IS angry with us. He has stripped us of our wealth, and given us over to wicked rulers. We have not repented. Repentance by word only isn't true repentance. The children still die. We continue to value our wealth more than His will. And professing Christians brag that God "helped" them sin. Our disobedience and lack of respect is epic. As if that wasn't enough, many voted for Trump trying to get out of God's judgment. They expect him to undo what God has allowed to be done to us, and celebrate the "victory"!

How foolish we are! Will God be mocked? Is sin nothing? Does God reward the shedding of innocent blood, or the worship of other gods, or disrespect for His Son's sacrifice? No. No, to all of these things. So, tell me how He's going to bless us.

We are as guilty as Sodom and as covered with innocent as ancient Israel. We, too, have our "high places" of idol worship. Planned Parenthood is just one of many. Wake up! He punished them, severely, and He's been punishing us. And that's NOT going to change because a new President's in office.

Seriously, have you READ the Bible? Far too many professing Christians are behaving as if they've NO idea what it actually says.

Slavery and Abortion: The Elite's Way Limiting "the Lesser Man"

Basically. abortion is slavery's replacement.

There has long been a desire by the "elite" to control what they consider the lesser of men. It wasn't just race that motivated them, either. It was anyone that could be forced into it. The Irish slave was actually treated worse than the black, but the Native American suffered far more greatly than either.

When these things became illegal, then another solution was sought. Abortion was seen as the perfect alternative. The "undesirables" could be limited and controlled by eradicating them in womb. Of course, they had to first make it sound like "a good thing". So, they sold sex as an absolute necessity. "One will have sex, but one need not be a parent."

Sex became a god, and the children have been dying by the millions ever since.

People or Animals?

The saddest historical fact about us as a nation is that we have rescued the animals while ignoring the children. We've drunk the kool-aid. We actually believe that animals and humans are equals. We spend fortunes on animals, but kill children because they might impact us financially -- even a little bit.

Christ did not go to the cross for animals. He wasn't beat for animals. He didn't let them spit on Him for animals. He did not take the nails for animals. No, He did all that for humans.

And God said, "Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Gen 1:26

We are superior in every way, intentionally so. We weren't made for them. No, they were made for us. There's no commandment to "not kill" them. No, but there is one regarding killing humans, and it is reinforced by many other Scriptures, like Exo 23:7

Keep thee far from a false matter, and the innocent and righteous, SLAY THOU NOT, for I will not justify the wicked.

We are even cautioned that ignoring their slaughter is unacceptable, because we will be counted as guilty for not coming to their rescue.

If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in His ways; then thou shalt add three cities more for thee besides these three:

That innocent blood be not shed in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, AND SO BLOOD BE UPON THEE. Deu 19:9, 10

See, that last little bit should scare you, because God is saying: If you don't protect the innocent, I'm going to punish you as if you had killed them yourself!

While you've been busy saving the animals, the children have been dying by the millions, and God's wrath has been rising up against you. Disobedience isn't a "ministry", folks, not even when it involves cute little kitties, puppies or what-have-you. Not when it is done as instead of helping little human babies. No, that's a delusion sent to you by the devil himself -- to keep you occupied and away from the work that truly matters.

Spoils of Disobedience

The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed always. Deu 28:33

Ever think about how our wealth has been doled out to other nations, how much that we work for is given over to the aliens among us or sent to those who hate us? Read the curses of Deuteronomy 28. We are already being punished. We are robbed everyday of our land, our rights, our resources, our wealth . . . even our children are stolen by the lies taught in public school and the poisons forced on us by vaccines, etc.

Wake up, America. You are in judgment for offending the Holy God of Heaven. Not even you get to mock Him.

God's Warning

When you truly work for God, you have to say what He is saying. And this is what He says:

"Repent! Repent with weeping and wailing. Repent in your words and your deeds. I will hear nothing else for your words have been empty, and meaningless. Your hearts are far from Me, and your deeds are wicked!"

"Repent! Turn away from your false Gods of wealth and self. Poverty beats separation. Separation is what you will get if you do not stop considering your wealth before Me. Do I not provide for you? Have I not given you much? Why then do you anger Me with your endless pursuit of riches? Poverty is what you will know, and that, greatly!"

"Repent! Stop claiming My Laws are optional! I did not send MY SON to the cross that you might remain in your sin. I do not go with you to sin. I do not make special allowances for your sin. It grieves Me. It insults Me! The whip is what I have for you if you do not return to holiness!"

"Repent! Stop shedding innocent blood. Your land is defiled by it. It's stench fills My nostrils and I am sick with it! How lazy you have been in Your regard of Me. Do not servants wait upon the Master? Yet, you have waited on Me to do work intended for you. Get up, you sluggard! Do something about the children, and the helpless that are slaughtered among you or by My word you shall be the one slaughtered!"

"Repent, for I am coming, and I will separate those who are Mine in truth from those who only claim to be. Be careful, lest you be one of the later!"


Regarding abortion: It is important to remember that God does not call us to violence. No, we are to speak, protest, offer help, teach, etc. Killing an abortionist or clinic workers just puts them in hell. If God wants them taken out, He really doesn't need our help to do that. No, He'll give them a heart-attack, cancer . . . the list of His ability to end us is endless. So, do not take this warning as incentive to violence. It is a call to righteous resistance, not violence.

All Credit and Glory to our Magnificent God!

I had to run errands today. There were things only I could do, but my strength is so small. I literally do the granny-crawl, and want to go to sleep every time I sit down. I had to take care of some business, though. So, I determined to stop at the pit to at least rebuke and pray.

While I was waiting for my son to finish some of his shopping, I opened my Bible. There was His word for today!

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will NOT hear me . . . -- Psa 66:28

It's part of a series of things He has given me to help them realize how far from God they really are. God does NOT hear their prayers. Because they have loved their sin, and spurned His rebuke, He does not hear their prayers. The ONLY thing He would entertain from them is repentance.

So, I went to the pit and preached. I had to have help from my son to walk from the truck to the sidewalk and back, but when I opened my mouth -- His fire poured out in strength! Wow!! It was nothing short of miraculous. It was a great, if brief, sermon, too -- not because I preached it, but in spite of me. It was ALL Him.

I'm about to take some more medicine and rest. I'm exhausted, but blessed to the point of tears. Thank you, Lord. Thank YOU!

"Refrigerator Pictures"

Up this morning contemplating the gentle way our Master moves us to shocking obedience. He never forced anyone to be martyred. No, He just becomes so important to us that we abandon even our lives for Him. We love Him more than life itself, need Him more, and desire Him more. As His children, we cannot bear the thought of life without Him. So, we'd rather die and join Him, than go on alone.

But what brings us to that point? It's the way He loves us, the incomprehensible way He keeps, provides for, guides, teaches . . . He literally woos our heart with His merciful love. Once His, we are become like husband and wife, in that to be separated from Him is to be cut in to, torn asunder. It is more painful than the fear of death, like having one's heart removed while still beating.

We know that death is a passing thing. Once it is accomplished, we will be with Him. Now, no one rushes to this, but we don't fear it, either.

Unlike the lost we aren't living because it is all we know. No, we live for Him, and we want to be good, productive children -- bringing the lost into the fold, and being His light in this darkness. We want to bring Him our gifts, our "refrigerator pictures". So, we want to tarry here as long as it pleases Him. It's just that when the time comes, we're not going to be kicking and screaming or wailing in fear. No, He has taught us to trust Him. So, we'll take His hand and enter that dark, unknown with joyous expectation, knowing He is waiting on the other side.

O, what a Master, this Savior divine!

Support the Effort: Buy a Tshirt, or "The Air of Heaven"

T-shirts are 30% off right now at my zazzle store, and you can order the book for $10.00 plus postage/handling directly from me (basically the cost of shipping). You can access the store from the website. For the book: leave a comment below.

Priorities, God's Will or Ours?

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that when they knew God, they glorified Him not... as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed bested, and creeping things. Wherefore God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. -- Rom 1:18-24

Now, look, when we trade what God has given us -- as in Who He is for who we wish He were, what He said for what we want to hear, or what He commanded for what we want to do; He gives us over to our own futility. We literally end up chasing our own tails. Hence the preference for animals. There's no Biblical basis for it, but many will fight to defend it, claiming that God led them to it. They are confused, because God NEVER said that.
The earth is the LORD's, and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell in it. -- Psa 24:1

And Moses said unto him, "As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord, and the thunder shall cease; neither shall there be any more hail that thou mayest know how the earth is the LORD's. -- Exo 9:29

And he said, "LORD God of Israel, there is no god like Thee, in heaven above or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with Thy servants that walk before Thee with all their heart." -- I Kin 8:23

WHO hath prevented Me that I should repay him? Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is MINE. -- Job 41:11

No one bests God. No one. He is in complete control even when it looks like He isn't. So, what do you fear? If you are truly His, the only thing to fear is Him. If you aren't His, you should fear Him even more. We all live at His pleasure. Consider that well, because you will get to answer for your disrespect.

From Last January: 1

As I continue to seek healing, I'm going to be sharing some of last year's facebook posts. I don't think many of them made it to the blog. I was too busy running for the LORD. So, I'll share them now. I pray they bless you.

Out preaching and pleading at the pit again this afternoon. I thought about not going because the weather is so nasty. Then I remembered the angel who used to w...hisper in my ear, "Go!" (Truly, I long to meet this one face to face. The urgency and tenderness in his voice really motivated me.) So, I gathered up my Bible and hurried off.

(Why do I refuse to believe that God has grown silent? Because He would have had to change to do so.

For I am the LORD, I change not . . . -- Mal 3:6)

Is there plenty in the Bible to encourage us to go if He isn't speaking personally to us? Yes. Yes, there absolutely is. There is an admonition not to shed innocent blood (Exo 23:7), a formula for blessings (Deu 19:10) that requires that we take action to prevent the shedding of innocent blood, plus an assurance that God Himself considers it abomination (Pro 6:16-17; but Ezekiel 35:6 actually puts the nail in that coffin:

Therefore, as I live, said the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee; sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.

Now, if you think about it, it isn't hard to see how our nation is steadily being prepared for slaughter. God doesn't kid around about things like this. He said, "No!" And He meant it. We have millions of little baby lives to make up for. Millions. As I tell the butchers at the pit, "We've planted bloodshed. So, bloodshed is what we will reap." What the believers need to realize is that judgment begins with us.

Our lack of regard for the children has been epic. I'm not sure we could have looked the other way any harder. And God is sorely disappointed in us -- more us than them, even, because we knew the truth.

Brothers and Sisters, if I plead with you too much to become active regarding the children it is because I see the danger. His approaching wrath is apparent to me. God has not grown silent. No, He speaks. We just haven't been listening. Like teenagers with earbuds, we are too caught up in the world. Like an angry Father, He is about to switch us severely. Take the warning. It is a lot less painful in the long run.

A Sad Reality

The sad truth is that there are many who have heard what God has said to me regarding the children of abortion, many He has caused to hear the children's cries, and many who thoroughly understand how responsible we are for seeing to them. Yet, there are few who have actually tried to do anything about it.

Tell me again how Trump is going to turn this around. One man against the wrath of God? While the children continue to cry out to Him for justice?

Only in your dreams, folks. God has not ceased to be Who He Is. We've just abandoned all reason.
