Listen to God

Too often we blame our troubles on the "end times". More often they come from what we have sown in our own field of life, and what we have sown comes directly out of our hearts.

Be NOT deceived. God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Gal 6:6, 7

Many are busy sowing a lack of regard for life in their field of life. They claim the children of abortion are not their problem. Yet, God assures us that a lack of concern for the shedding of innocent blood brings bloodshed upon us.

Therefore, as I live, saith 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.  Eze 35:6

If we had truly hated bloodshed, we would have put an end to it long ago. Instead what we have seen is an epic disregard, a disregard that has led to our nation being absolutely covered in innocent blood. We're literally drowning in it spiritually.

Others are busy chasing a pile of gold. They give their lives to the pursuit of riches. Yet, riches will not save anyone. Rich and poor alike are destined to the coffin. Only the saved will move on to Heaven, but to be saved the LORD must be our Master.

No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve both God and mammon.  Mat 6:24

Still others live for self -- believing that whatever they decide to do is acceptable. To that end, they allow themselves whatever wickedness their heart desires, and that wickedness eventually overcomes and blinds us.

The heart is deceitful above ALL things, and DESPERATELY wicked. Who can know it? I the LORD search the heart. I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Jer 17:9, 10

The point is that sin begins in the spiritual realm of the heart. First we consider sin in our hearts, then that sin is carried out in our bodies or by our actions. It's conceived in the heart. So, we must guard our hearts, making His word and His will our focus.

I used to know a woman who had several children. The chaos was astounding. However, I loved the way she would get her children's attention. She would say, "Listen to Mommy. Listen for my voice." strongly emphasizing the word "Listen".

This is exactly how we should attend to our hearts. We should be listening for and to His voice. Now, granted God does not speak audibly all the time. However, we can still hear His voice all the time through His word. All we have to do is open the Bible and seek Him out.

Ask, and it shall be given to you. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you; for everyone that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Mat 7:7, 8

If we truly desire to please and honor Him, we must let Him be Lord our hearts. We must be willing, even eager, to allow Him to cut out the wicked desires of our hearts and replace them with a deep, abiding desire to please Him. We are not called to trust in our own ability to think or reason.

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways," saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts." Isa 55:8, 9

No, we are called to "Listen" to Him. Seek Him out today. Diligently desire Him. There is a wealth of loving comfort to be found in staying closely attune to His will. Avail yourself of it, and do not be found listening to your heart without it.

Last Night's Insight from God

The LORD revealed last night that some are using what I've said without giving credit to me at all. We're talking about spiritual "leaders" here. Men who claim women should be silent! They think they are getting away with something, sneaking one by me -- some even are concerned they might get called on it.

My response: Hmmmm. Let me help them:

Take the poem, "Little Innocents" and share it as far and wide as you dare.

Take another, like, "Weep" and broadcast it.

Request use of the art. Did I not make it to save little babies? Was not God the One who enabled my hands? What would I loose if more are saved? (Yes, I do ask for a very, small percentage if used to raise funds; but use is FREE if you just want to save babies.)

Take my writings, my prophecies and scatter them far and wide.

Take my reflections and my prayers. Disperse them like seeds.

What I have said is intended to be shared. It isn't my word. It's what God Himself said directly or laid on my heart. GLORY BE TO GOD!!

(Why on earth would I be offended?)

ALL God's Children Matter

Heartbreaking experience on the way home from the pit today.

A middle-aged, black woman was begging on the streets. I was in a hurry, but the LORD showed me her heart and I just could not drive on by.

She looked up and saw me, then turned her face downwards -- clearly thinking I wouldn't care at all about her. Her whole demeanor was that of someone who had been kicked all her life.

So, I stopped traffic, dug through my purse, and pulled out some cash. When I rolled down the window, I let His love flow through me as I handed her what I had. "God bless you, honey," I said.

There we were both in tears. Me, that she would be so certain she wouldn't matter to me; and her, because she realized she does matter to people like me.

My prayer is that by His grace she'll realize skin is not the measuring stick some claim it is, and that the Great God of Heaven loves ALL His children.

Thank YOU, LORD, for allowing me to be YOU to this dear sister!

Today's Message

The Scripture the LORD gave me this morning is quite interesting:

For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses. And the LORD was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth -- 2 Ki 18:6, 7

So much of the time the LORD has me base what I preach on Deuteronomy 28:15-20; the curses that come from disobedience. Today, He said, "Tell them of the blessings that come of obedience; that they might know the difference and turn before it is too late."

So, I preached this morning on how He rewards our diligent obedience. I pointed out that Hezekiah was so determined to please God that he tore down the altars where the Israelites sacrificed their children to false gods (2 Ki 18:4), and warred against neighboring nations who also worshipped false gods (v. 7, 8.)

God wants to forgive, but they are running out of time. So, I pled with them to turn back while they still could. To be like Hezekiah, choosing to buck the system; rather than, go with the flow.

The pit near empty, with only a few workers inside. I know by the Spirit that they have been experiencing His rebuke in their personal lives. This is one of the reasons it is so imperative that we preach at the pits. They must be told the truth. They must be offered salvation. And the must be rebuked.

Please pray with me that the hell-hole will be totally closed down.

God is NOT Silent

He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. Mat 10:41

One of the things being said today is that there are no more true prophets, because God no longer speaks. However, this is the LORD speaking. Why would He encourage those listening to attend to prophets if there aren't any? He wouldn't. No, but He knew there would come some who would deny any direction He gave beyond the Bible.

Now, to be certain any word given by a prophet must be in line with Scripture. It must fit with what He has already given us. Some say that means He has nothing new to say. However, the abortion nightmare is proof they are wrong.

With abortion the organized church is guilty before God for insisting they need to nothing to save the children. Yet, Scripture says otherwise -- in many, many places. So, God ordained people like me to testify to the church of its guilt. They, naturally, responded by claiming I could not speak for God, because He no longer speaks -- and, if He did, it would not be to a woman.

Well, both are blatant lies of the devil. However, we live in the age of the Laodicean church -- which prefers to having its ears tickled to actual obedience. Church leaders would much rather keep their members than teach them the uncomfortable truth.

FYI: Yes, I looked it up. This verse really is talking about prophets, those who hear directly from God. The Greek word means "a proclaimer of a divine message".

WAKE UP, organized church lovers!! God has not grown silent. I don't care who tells you otherwise. Get wise to their motives. Read His word, and realize you're being lied to.

A Word From the LORD

And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go hence. Mat 10:11

In today's Christian society we no longer take care of those who preach at God's call unless they do so under denominational authority. Denominations do not see abortion, for instance, as their problem. In short, if the disciples were sent out today, they would be homeless and hungry.

I was reading through Matthew when the LORD stopped me and pointed this out. He literally was saying,

"Think about this. They build great structures to me, but miss the real meat of My word!"

Shocking, isn't it?

Let You Light Shine

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Yeshua. And beholding the man standing with them, they could say nothing against it. Act 4:13, 14

But that it spread no further among the people, let us straightly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name (Yeshua's). Act 4:17

Brother and Sister, are you afraid to stand up for Christ. Do you worry that you might criticized for standing up for Him. Understand that Peter and John's preaching caused the early church to grow like wildfire. Yes, they were in danger, but they did so anyway. If we are to turn our nation, we, too, must be bold. We must speak and refused to be silenced!

Let your light shine. Get it out from under the table, and up on the mountain. Only then can it draw others to Him. Otherwise, you have assisted the darkness.

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place; neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick that they which come in may see the light. Luk 11:33

Mary and the Goddess

In ancient times the worship of the "goddess" was rather wide spread. Along comes Constantine and we have the worship of Mary. This is in fact what Constantine did. He took pagan beliefs, washed them with quasi-Christianity, and insisted that the world change to suit him. Many, if not most, of his early converts were by force -- submit or die.

Truth is Catholicism hasn't changed that much since Constantine brought it to bear. Even though we don't have the Inquisition, many will fight you over their adoration of Mary, and "supremacy" of their church. Sadly, though, few actually care about an actual relationship with Christ.

The devil's crafty. He knows that people love a good show, and prefer a leader they can see to one they can't. He also knows there's no salvation in ANYONE or ANYTHING except Christ. So, he entertains them, and gives them a "mission" (protect the church at all costs); while seeing to it they never actually get saved.

I love my Catholic brothers and sisters, but I would that they would come away from the deception before them. The ONLY way to heaven is through Christ. Mary was not, and is not god. She never was. No, she's just the goddess reworked. She's not listening to your prayers, nor coming to your rescue. Only God can do that, and His name is Yeshua the Christ.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Act 4:12

Constantine: The Instigator of Many Bad Things

Christ was crucified on Friday before sundown. The Jewish day runs from evening to evening. I believe it's from 6 pm to 6 pm. The true Sabbath runs from Friday evening to Saturday evening, making it the first of the three days. The second day would then be from Saturday evening to Sunday evening. The third would be from Sunday evening to Monday evening. Since He rose again early in the morning, this would be Resurrection Day.

The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath day, (for that Sabbath day was a high day) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with Him. But when they came to Yeshua, and saw that He was dead already, they brake not His legs  Joh 19:31-33

The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher.  Joh 20:1

Happy Resurrection Day, Brothers and Sisters.

The Organized Church and Abortion

One thing to remember when you see someone using Scripture from different parts of the Bible to support a teaching is that Scripture actually does support itself. While we should not be picking verses at random, and, certainly, verses that do not belong together should not be considered together; basic truths are consistent from Genesis through Revelation.

The command to stand against the shedding of innocent is one of those truths. To start with, God created man in order to have an ongoing relationship with him (Gen 3:8,9), making him to procreate (Gen 1:27,28). He was horrified at Cain for killing Abel (Gen 4:10, 11). And He caused those who recorded the Scriptures to use words (ben, OT; brephos, NT) that included the children in the womb. So, when He said, "Thou shalt not kill" (Exo 20:13), He actually meant "Thou shalt not kill the children in the womb", as well.

There are in fact many other Scriptures that cover murder -- which is what abortion is to God -- and, because of the careful groundwork laid in Genesis, we know that the children were included in each and every admonishment (Gen 9:5). In addition, there are several verses that point directly at the shedding of innocent blood (Deu 19:10, 27:25; Jer 7:6-7). They make it very clear that God considers abortion a wicked, abomination that only a stiff-necked, disobedient people would allow (Exo 23:7; Pro 6:16,17; Eph 5:11; Jam 4:17).

So, why do so many ignore this nation destroying atrocity? Sadly, in many cases it is for the same reason the Pharisees wanted to see the LORD crucified. They were and are more concerned with what they want than with what He commands. They literally prefer holding a church service without God to having to obey God's call to actively take a stand -- having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof (2 Tim 3:5). In reality they are what James referred to as "hearers only" (Jam 1:22). They love to appear holy, but do not truly desire to be holy.

Look at your church. Look closely. If they do not have or support a viable pro life outreach, ask why. If they say anything that implies they do not consider it their duty, perhaps you should find another place of worship. The LORD has no more interest in the self-serving, denominationalism of the modern church than He did in the pseudo-temple of the Pharisees. (Which is why they would get so incensed when He would teach there.) They, too, had rewritten Scripture to fit their own imaginations, and God had abandoned them to their folly.

What the ProAbort Actually is Saying to God

Those who support abortion cannot possibly understand what they support. To them it is about the "choice" to be a mother or "control" over one's body. Literally, though, they support death. They support the killing of innocents.

So, what God hears is that they do not care for life, that they are actually anti-life. God is no respecter of persons. We all have the same value to Him, including the child in the womb. So, when we place no value on their lives, He cannot help but view that as a lack of value for life period.

So, the abortion supporter says to God, my own life is valueless to me. I should be dead. It should be legal to kill me, because I have no value.

The Peter opened his mouth, and said, "Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons; but in every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness is accepted with Him." Act 10:34, 35

God calls us to value life, and protect the innocent. It's the devil himself who calls you to abort children for God is not double minded and He ruled on this long ago.

Thou shalt not kill. Exo 20:13 (and 23:7)

On Divorce . . .

What is a Christian to do when their spouse is determined to leave them? Well, God hates divorce (Mal 2:6). However, He does not task us with our spouse's sins. We simply cannot make someone love us nor can we force them to live holy. So, we are not held to a marriage that our spouse chooses to leave. That's their choice, not ours. (1 Cor 7:15)

The biggest problem here is that many live for God's exceptions. They look for ways out of their commitment. They need to wake up and realize that God knows the heart. He sees when we use His word as an excuse for our sins. It angers Him, and puts us in danger of His wrath. There is a lot of suffering in such disobedience.

Where we can, we are to live at peace with each other. We are to keep our vows, and not take our commitment lightly. Can there come a time when divorce truly is warranted? Yes, but we must not seek it.

I am grieved by how many do take their vows lightly. At the first little inconvenience they believe they should be able to give up, and move on. Yet, there's no promise in Scripture that marriage will be easy or even convenient. After all, you married another human, didn't you? Well, the reality is that humanity is flawed. We are sinful by nature. Grace is of God.

Make certain that you do not seek divorce just because your marriage has become difficult. Do not seek it lightly. If you are wronged, give the erring spouse to the Lord. Can He not govern them? Surely He is more than able, but look first to yourself. All too often we blame another for what is really our own doing. Be patient and long suffering. Then if your spouse just must leave, let them go and trust God to deliver you.

Our society is far too comfortable with the "disposal" attitude when it comes to marriage, and people in general. We want to discard those that no longer suit us or don't fit into our plans. Our selfish hearts are calloused and greedy. One husband takes a wife he has kept at home for years and just throws her to the wind; and a wife abandons a husband who has worked a lifetime to please her for a younger man. It's insane, but it's what you get when self is your god.

Street Preaching

So I went out in the Spirit, and preached on fire at the local abortuary. Yes, the demons were horrified; but I bound, rebuked, and cast them out as I arrived. The Spirit was strong on me and the message was clear:

To the parents:  Leave this pit of hell quickly. Understand God's law regarding them (citing appropriate Scripture), and flee this place!

To the workers:  You have been judged! You refused to repent, and God's wrath is coming soon against you. Repent now. Leave now. Tomorrow may seriously be too late. (Again, citing appropriate Scripture.)

Wow! Sometime even I get chills. (Left knowing I need to find other places to preach. People are literally stunned when they hear true Spirit-filled preaching.)

Lead me, Lord. I'll go wherever it pleases You.

The Day of Judgment

Then He began to upbraid the cities wherein most of His mighty works were done, because they repented not.  Mat 11:20

Upbraid -- to find fault with, to scold.

People forget that Christ got serious with those He ministered to. He had shown them the truth, but they had not listened. They had not turned, and it angered Him. So, He pointed to the danger of not turning.

Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. 

And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell. For if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say to you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.  Mat 11:21 - 24

Yet, people think I should preach, peace and a gentle message! No, thank you. I don't God mad at me, because I failed to tell you the truth.

He is angry. We have not listened. We have not turned. So, He is angry, and it will be more tolerable for Sodom on the day of judgment than it will be for us. All the innocent blood we have shed, and continue to shed; the disrespect we have for His sacrifice; and our love of money . . . these He holds against us, and rightly so.

As to the Lord . . .

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord; and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord, ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.  Col 3:23, 24

How much of what you do is as unto the Lord? Do you consider how to spend your time with Him in mind? Your energy? Your resources? As our God He is to be our priority. Many believe that they have done this because they have found a ministry wherein to work. However, given that the ministry is of their heart; rather than, His, they still serve themselves. They are not working as unto the Lord. They are working to please themselves.

Do you realize that rescuing the children is one of His great priorities? Why? Well, because biblically, they are the fatherless; because their fathers cannot or do not protect them, to God they are the fatherless.

Ye shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child.  Exo 22:22

And the Levite (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee), and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat, and be satisfied; that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.  Deu 14:29

Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge;  Deu 24:17

When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it. It shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the Lord thy God may bless thee for all the work of thine hands. Deu 24:19

When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again. It shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.  Due 24:20

When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterward. It shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow. Deu 24:21

When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled; then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them:  Deu 26:12, 13

Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen.  Deu 27:19

Folks, this is just Deuteronomy. The call to protect, provide, and deliver the fatherless is throughout Scripture! Yet, by today’s organized church, they are unimportant. The church is what we take care of. The church is where our effort lives, our hearts, our time; but the children – well, that we leave to someone else. Who else? Anyone or no one, as long as it isn’t us. We’ll even see to the animals before we see to the children. Yet, God loves the fatherless.

Does this mean we shouldn’t also share the gospel? Heavens no! However, if all we do is share the gospel, we leave out a huge portion of God’s call. We do not truly work “as to the Lord”, because He expects us to see to them. You don’t have to take my word for it, but you really should take His.
