Revelation 17:14  “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”

One of the ways satan has tried to confuse and deter Christians from solidifying their beliefs is by making prophecy seem scary or confusing.  I am going to address the latter today, and hopefully the first in the coming days. 

(Why does the word Revelation = Scary?  Is that what you thought when you read the first word of this post?)

The Lord led me to an article by Mike Taylor from a while back.  It really lays out the comparison well between two of the most popular beliefs. 

Having studied the different views on end time timelines, there is one that rose above the others, premillennial.  What make it stand out to me is that you really did not have to suspend believe for the pieces to fit together.  And more importantly, there were not any pieces left on the table as “not fitting” the theory you have assembled.

I believe that the bible is 100% correct and the infallible word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit.  God would not layout prophecy that contradicted itself, it all fits together.  You just need to continue to pray, study and dig deeply untill they all fit.  In all my years of (more…)

A question I have been asking myself recently is what does it mean to be a “watchman”?  Jesus uses this term several times throughout prophecy.  I have prayed about this and I feel pieces are beginning to come into focus.  One of the pieces is summed up well in an article this week by Jim Fletcher, at Israel Watch.

I think being a watchman for God and His signs of the last days has a lot to do with “not being of this world” as Paul so eloquently stated in Romans 12:2.

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

We are not supposed to “fit into” this world, we are not called to be normal.  Jesus said take heart and do not be discouraged if the world hates you because they hated Me first.

John 15:17-19 (KJV) –  17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

This is not a bad thing, it is actually good.  I think that is where we have gone so wrong as a church and frankly as parents.  We should not try ourselves to conform to this world and we should not teach our kids that is the right way.  I think that is a major component of (more…)

I think this article, better than most, points out how we are declining as a nation and will not be the super power soon.  Some say it is intentional, others say it is due to ignorance or stupidity, that we are following the path the UK & EU have taken to their pending collapse.

My heart tells me it is God’s Word / Purpose being fulfilled.  It doesn’t matter the motives, the result is we are headed off a cliff.  I would say that God’s staying hand has restrained us from collapsing completely.  We still have some purpose we need to fulfill, our number is not yet full.  All the indicators say we should not still be standing, as a nation, economy, world unit, but that is the Glory and Power and Wonder of God.  Everything is according to his plan and on his timetable.

While we all were celebrating our Lord’s birth, Lucifer was busing getting this world ready for his time, when the restrainer is removed, and God lets him loose on this planet. 

First there was the bills that were passed concerning holding Americans without due process, which didn’t specifically say it would occur, it left the door open to interpretation by not explicitly excluding it.  There was a little flare up and now all is quite.  Last year it was the crack down of the TSA with Air Travel, at the end of the year that expanded as well to our highways, bus terminals, ports and rail.

Just this week these two articles caught my attention and a couple more puzzle pieces fall into place.  The infrastructure has been put in place in the US.  It is not fully being used today, but it could be. 

If we turn our gaze to Europe, we can see the next steps play out.  It is stunning to watch what is happening.  The main stream media will not show you, you have to dig a little for it.  Depending on how far you dig you can even find, where they plan on taking it as they slowly ratchet the controls down. 

I liked the analogy one of the readers commented on: “boiling a frog slowly”.

Do not fear.  Release the dread that creeps over you and turn it into waking up those you love.

Christ said: “Do not be alarmed.”

The good news is, we only have to see the build up and the framework being laid. 

Christ has promised to keep us from the worst!  Praise the Lord!

This video is a must see! 

We hear a lot from prophecy scholars that Israel is the “Mega sign” that we are living in the end times.  Sometimes that is something that can float past without it really sinking in what that really means.  The video below does a good job at tying the events to there corresponding prophecy prediction. 

Take a look…

It seems the Lord is sending me a message early in this new year.  I have had the thoughts and feelings to slow down and listen, calm my mind, clear my life of the “clutter”.  Normally, I get this feeling every year, wanting to rid my life of stuff and simplify but normally it is just physical stuff and yes I still have those feelings but it is different this year.  I feel the Lord is really trying to get through to me to quiet my mind and listen, block out all the “noise” of today and truly listen, because time is short.  I think “time is short” is the secondary message I am getting.  It is the feeling when someone calls you over to tell you something important and says shhh, shhh, we need to focus here and execute.

This morning I posted an article I have read a few weeks back before the holidays, saved off and re-read this morning after my prayers.  It was the one the Lord led me to and I was prompted to post.   Then this evening, I listen to my favorite paster from the islands out west, and toward the end, he tells a story about the same topic, we need to “hear the still small voice”.

Are we slowing down to hear what God is asking us?

That is the question I am asking myself everyday now, are you?

The video below is eerie, that is the best word I can use to describe it.  It links so many of the biblical prophecies but the authors are not coming at it from that angle, they are truly looking at it from a secular or spiritual (not Godly) perspective.  It is truly spooky.  They mention things like “the collective”, “human race ascending”, “spiritual reality”, and “human 2.0”.

Human 2.0?  “Are you going to ascend or not?” What?  This is evil, not of God but of man.  When I heard that I thought of Babylon, man saying I can do it, we can be like God.

It will be interesting to see what plays out in the coming months.

I feel something is on our horizon…

In my post of Jan. 3, 2012 I put up this video and asked people what they thought of it. Here is another comment on that video.

You asked for opinions on the video you put up and I’m certain you’ve gotten many! 🙂

This article by Matt Leasher really hit home for me this holiday season.  It may be something that you want to consider as you kick off your new year.  I use to believe and still hear from others quite often, that God doesn’t work these days like he did back then (in the bible).  I no longer believe this.  God promises in His word that He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The real problem is that we are so “busy” and distracted by all of our electronic gadgets (TV, DVR, Phones, Computers, iPods, iPads, laptops, netbooks, ultra books, kindles, radios, etc) let alone all of the other people in our lives (kids, parents, co-workers, neighbors, clients, pets, etc) that we just do not hear him calling.

When was the last time that you just sat and listened for God’s small voice?  We are told that he whispers to us on the wind and that he is always there telling us His will for our lives.  We just have to slow down, stop, pray and listen.  Not for just a minute or two but longer.  The first few times I tried this were agony, I will not kid you, but after a while it was peaceful, clarifying, and very insightful.

God wants us to slow down, take a breath and rest in his peace and quiet.  Slow down your mind, and truly rest.

He is calling you, he has a purpose for you.

Do you hear Him calling?


Answering The Call

By Matt Leasher

Many of God’s children have the misconception that being “called by God” means that they are to join the seminary and become a minister or a missionary after a beam of heavenly light has burst into their room and told them to do so with a thunderous voice, however, the truth of the matter is that when God calls on us it is usually in a still small voice and unto the common man – like you and me.

We read in 1 Kings 19:11-13 that God called upon Elijah, the humble prophet, in a “still small voice” when Elijah was hiding in a cave, afraid, and running from further service to the Lord.  Elijah had already done great things in the Lord’s name at this point. He had called down the fire of God from heaven to defeat the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel, (1 Kings 18:20-40), he had confronted King Ahab to inform him that the drought God had brought on the land would end, (1 Kings 18:1-19) and prior to that he had restored life to the widow’s son, (1 Kings 17:17-24). He faithfully did all of these miraculous things in the name of the Lord God of Israel.  But when Jezebel, the evil wife of King Ahab, sought to kill him, he then ran and hid in a cave. What I want to point out here is that God called upon Elijah with a still small voice even though Elijah became weak and afraid. Elijah tuned out the world around him by finding a cave to hide in and it was there that God revealed Himself with a still small voice.  Elijah already knew God and knew Him well when God gently called upon him to continue His work.  This is a lesson for us as well, in that being a believer is a prerequisite to answering the call of God and He will speak to us in His still small voice if we shut off the world around us.

We live in an age and culture where there are always “better things to do” than spend quiet time alone with the Lord. Anytime there is “free time” it is usually spent on self-entertainment. This age of technology has created a cyber world of self amusement so that when the day’s work is done then we are immediately engulfed in our digital devices whether it be TV, the computer, or our cell phones which have now become mini digital do-it-alls.  The younger generation of today find themselves walking into walls because their eyes are constantly glued to their cell phones. They have become slaves to the digital world.  They cannot hear that still small voice of the Lord because their minds are always too preoccupied with the cyber world.  Back in the 19th century, (which was only 112 years ago), when the day’s work was done the only evening leisure was reading by candlelight. In a Godly sense, these were good days but in a humanistic sense, the technological advancements of today’s society are better days. Society sees itself progressing because of technology but I’ll bet from God’s viewpoint of wisdom, He sees our world setting itself up for self-destruction as a result of technology and most disheartening to Him has to be the lack of attention of His calling via the Holy Spirit.

The problem isn’t just a result of technological toys. The problem is the same old problem it has always been – man’s heart. In this Age of Grace that we are living in the Holy Spirit is at work drawing souls to Christ but the physical means that His work is accomplished is through human vessels.  The human vessels that are willing to do this work are those that answer the call of the Lord.  God can use anyone that is willing. God is not looking for people that are qualified.  He is looking for people that are available.

“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.  (2 Chronicles 16:9a)

God isn’t looking for robots either. He is looking for loyal hearts that love Him and that share in His desire to reach the lost and bring them back to Him.  Jesus said:

“The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:37-38)
