Listen to God’s Prophetic Voice

There are many voices in the world speaking one thing, then another. To hear God’s still small voice all other voices must be shut out, including the voices in our own heads. The whole world, both East and West, is designed by Satan to keep you from hearing God’s still small voice. It is designed to keep you from hearing God’s prophetic voice. There is no accident that every country has social media platforms, news outlets, and thousands of popular websites to keep you from hearing God’s voice. There is no accident that every country has movies, internet games, and streaming videos to keep you so occupied that you cannot hear God’s still small voice. The world is being overcome and overwhelmed by the spirit of Antichrist and his false prophet. They are purposefully leading humanity to chase after every new conspiracy theory, half-truth, and outrageous lie, which keeps them from hearing God’s prophetic voice. Furthermore, they are leading humanity to draw forth their own conclusions based on what they have observed in the world. In a sense, nearly everyone has become their own prophet by completely ignoring God’s prophetic voice. We must listen to the still small voice of God (I Kings 19:11-12).

Regrettably, some professed Christians have searched the Bible and intermixed it with current events to draw their own conclusions spawning a whole new era of false prophets. They too have failed to listen to the still small voice of God. Others have turned to their dreams and visions, which God can truly give, to draw forth their own predictions based on current events but failed to have them confirmed by the still small voice of God. Unfortunately, all of these false predictions and false prophecies are leading the world into even greater confusion setting it up to accept wholeheartedly the spirit of Antichrist and his false prophet. Then again, Satan’s design is to give everyone a voice on the world stage, even allowing some to be called influencers. Although some had been censored or kicked off, they are now back on with their past record expunged in the name of free speech. Satan doesn’t care what you say, as long as it adds to the confusion, because he will ultimately use this to his advantage when the Antichrist is finally recognized in the flesh. Simply put, the spirit of Antichrist and his false prophet does not want you to hear the prophetic voice of God.

Yes, we want to hear the prophetic voice of God, even if it’s completely different than anything we have heard before. We want to hear the prophetic voice of God, even if it feels like burning embers exposing every sin that we have ever thought or committed. We want to hear the prophetic voice of God, even if we must face the fiery darts of the enemy. We have heard enough of the confusion in the world trying to cast us in one direction, then another. It’s been over 40 years that we have bent our ears to hear your still small voice while we have prayed in complete silence and solitude. We have always believed that your prophetic voice cannot be contained, so please give us the strength to proclaim it as we should. Let us proclaim it even if it is rejected and ridiculed by the most learned minds. We know that your prophetic voice will separate the sheep from the goats. We know that it will be like a blazing fire that will burn unhindered into the hearts and minds of fallen humanity. We know that it will also cause your beloved children, chosen before the foundation of the world, to come out from among the fallen world and be separate. We know that the prophetic voice of God will never violate Holy Scripture. Let us all boldly proclaim your prophetic voice.

Those with eyes open have seen the true condition of the entire world. They have seen the big picture. Perhaps it all started in the 1960s after the last Great War when there was great pride in overcoming insurmountable obstacles and building a brave new world free from the aggression of Germany’s Adolf Hitler. What ensued in the coming years was the acceptance of all religions and non-religions to chart their course forward. In time they began to accept every perversion even if it was an abomination of classic Christianity. In time they removed prayer and God’s Ten Commandments from public education allowing lawlessness and every perversion to instruct our children. In time drugs became an epidemic as lawlessness increased tenfold. Counseling offices were overwhelmed, and psychiatry invaded our churches. Many laws were relaxed to maintain the appearance of law and order. New beliefs were formed with the introduction of television, an endless supply of movies, and addictive computer games. By the end of the century America and the West were no longer the same. Heathenism had made lasting inroads crippling the voice of classic Christianity. There has been a horrific decline in Christian morality while most seek help from the world to solve their growing emotional and psychological problems.

God is not asleep in the heavens. He sees everything from the beginning to the end. God has not changed. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8). God sent His only begotten Son to show us the way (John 14:6). After two thousand years we have lost our way, once again, leading God to deal with our disobedience the same way He always has. A man, a nation, and all of humanity will reap what they have sown (Galatians 6:7). Yes, there may be thousands of sincere believers following Christ through obedience to all of His laws and trusting God alone to give them everything they need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3), but the majority of those who claim Christ are following the spirit of Antichrist. The West, which has traditionally claimed Christ as its Savior, has been reaping what they have sown through their outrageous sins. Trying to erase the consequences of our sins by following the world in trying to fix everything that has caused global warming will fail. The explosive fires, increasingly strong earthquakes, massive storms, horrific flooding, and rising sea levels along with every other so-called natural disaster will become catastrophic. Research of the mRNA for vaccines will not stop the increasing variants of the virus. The variants will only get worse killing millions worldwide, even if they stop reporting it. There is only one thing to do. National repentance is the only thing that will stop the hand of God.

For many years now we have been fighting proxy wars to keep death and destruction off our shores. From the Korean War to the Vietnam War and from Afghanistan to Ukraine we have fought the proxy war to spare our citizens. However, this will not stop the hand of God. This latest proxy war with Russia and the East will be our undoing for turning our back on God. No, this war will not be settled in 24 hours as some have pridefully boasted. We can continue or stop assisting Ukraine, but in time we will still face the full onslaught of Russia, and the might of the Eastern alliance. Yes, we have seen this throughout Biblical history where God has raised up other nations to destroy His elect children and even carry them off into bondage (Jeremiah 25:1-11). God’s ways have not changed. We will not stop the East on its relentless path to destroy the West, lest we repent now as a nation. There is no place to run and hide. Most will ignore this prophetic voice of God and run to hide in the caves. Yes, I said caves (Revelation 6:15-17). Most will not accept the horrific realities of life and seek to withdraw into their movies, their social media encounters, or their computer games. They will close their eyes to what’s happening in the real world and will immerse themselves in their work or the many things that will bring them momentary happiness. If they survive long enough, they will discover how to escape in the coming Metaverse. Dear children, there is no escape. Thus saith the Lord, if this nation and the West doesn’t repent soon, then we will continue to suffer the consequences of our sins and the horror of the coming apocalypse.

Prepare For The Journey

Every true believer in Christ should prepare for the journey beyond this life, even when we don’t know when it will be. We all know that the journey must come, either at our death or at the coming of the Lord. We also know, if we are honest, it can come at any time, in the twinkling of an eye. We will all make the journey. We will all go to a place to be judged in God’s predetermined time, but only God’s elect children will continue making their journey to the gates of heaven. Only the ones who have been chosen since the foundations of the world will be welcomed into paradise (Ephesians 1:4). Make no mistake, only God’s chosen children will have a deep indescribable desire to prepare for the journey. It is our responsibility to help God’s children to prepare now. We should not take this responsibility lightly. Let us all roll up our sleeves and get to work. If you throw this article down and have no interest in preparing for the journey, then you will be most pitted amongst God’s creation and you will have a most difficult time proving your election. So, please let me encourage you to read this entire article very carefully with much prayer and meditation. Your time is coming much sooner than you think.

In a very real sense, we have all been on the journey since we were born, either on a journey toward the light or on a journey toward the darkness. Before we proceed, I pray that you have received the call from the risen Lord and are on the path to righteousness, to His eternal light. The earthly journey has been difficult for most, constantly learning and growing by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. Many have gone through tremendous upheavals in their life but have pressed on toward the light. Now, we will prepare for the last leg of our journey to a place beyond time and space, to a place where only good memories will be cherished, and bad memories will no longer exist. Those who have journeyed long to the light, in our present reality, have experienced a foretaste of things to come where the music is sweeter, the joy is exhilarating, and the peace of God transcends all understanding. The more we journey in this present reality, the more we long to complete our journey to heavenly bliss and the eradication of all evil. So, we prepare for the journey believing that God will give us all that we need. We will prepare for the journey even if others in the fallen world rise up against us. We will prepare for the journey trusting in God’s loving providence.

The biggest stumbling block for most on the journey, their upward calling in Christ Jesus, is learning how to truly forgive others from the heart. Why is this so important? Jesus said, “But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (Matthew 6:15). Living a life of the unforgiven must be the most horrible thing experienced in this reality, which causes many emotional and psychological problems driving them deeper into the camp of the enemy. Their constant memories of being hurt by others, real or unreal, will cast them into a life of hate and bitterness. This is the first thing that we must overcome in preparation for the journey. I have written many articles on how to truly forgive others from the heart so that in time you will completely forget the trespass and the agonizing hurt. Simply put, we must never again bring up the trespass to others to garner their sympathy, to never dwell on the trespass, and immediately cast out the agonizing memory by replacing it with another righteous thought. The good news is that Christ will give us great power to overcome the trespass and truly forgive others from the heart. Godly forgiveness will always lead to forgetfulness erasing the hurt from our souls. Let us press on in our preparation for the journey.

The next step in our preparation for the journey is to settle all remaining debts, both financial and spiritual debts. We are all familiar with having financial debt because we live in a world that has made it extremely easy for all of its citizens to live beyond their means and incur debt. This is especially true in the West and specifically the United States who keeps increasing its own debt year after year. For the Christian, however, who is on the journey no debt must be left outstanding. The Bible says, “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law” (Romans 13:8). We all have debts, but we must not keep endlessly adding to them, but we must aggressively seek to settle all of our financial debts, which extends our love to our debtors. We must also settle our spiritual debts, especially with those who have ought with us. This is very important as we prepare for the journey. If we have offended anyone in any way, then that puts the burden on us to settle the spiritual indebtedness. Why is this so important? It is because we are our brother’s keeper and to cause them to stumble from what we have said or done has serious consequences (Matthew 18:6). As the Bible says, we must leave our offering at the altar and go first to be reconciled with our brother (Matthew 5:23-25). Let us prepare for the journey by settling all of our debts.

The next step in the preparation for the journey is to discover the weight and the sin that so easily besets us. This is a difficult thing for most of God’s children to do, in discovering their weight and besetting sin. It’s much easier to look at the big sins of others instead of making a closer examination of their own besetting sin, the weight that keeps them from effectively running the race set before them (Hebrews 12:1-2). I have referred to this as the favorite sin that most people are unwilling to give up. Is it smoking? Is it excessive drinking? Is it eating food that is knowingly bad for you? Is it looking at or lusting after the opposite sex? Is it cursing? Is it fantasizing or entertaining vain imaginations? Is it talking about or gossiping about others behind their backs? I have learned through many years of counseling that most have a favorite sin that they are unwilling to give up or even admit that it was a sin in the first place. There are a couple of things that will help you to identify your favorite sin. The first thing is to become acquainted with all of God’s beautiful commandments in the Bible, allowing them to bring conviction to our souls. The second thing we can do is to ask, “does this favorite sin destroy my body or God’s beautiful creation” (I Corinthians 3:16-17)? If you know that it will damage your body and you refuse to give up the habit, then you have identified your favorite sin. Let’s prepare for the journey by repenting today.

Finally, there is one more step that will do more than anything else in our preparation for the journey. Jesus Christ is our best example in preparing for the journey. Jesus Christ looked beyond the suffering on the Cross to the joy that was set before Him for all eternity (Hebrews 12:2). This is most difficult in a world that’s leading humanity to stay focused on one conspiracy theory or deception after another. It’s most difficult in a world that is leading humanity around by the nose through every social media post and breaking news article. It’s most difficult when death comes in the twinkling of an eye, but suffering can seem like an eternity. The toxic levels in the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink are having a profound effect upon humanity creating previously unknown illnesses, enormous suffering, and a longing for death. Humanity is dying. Natural disasters, wars, famines, and the coming apocalypse will drive all of humanity to the threshold of madness, but we will stay focused on the joy set before us and not be overcome by the tragedy in the world. In this final step we also stay focused on Jesus as the author and perfecter of our faith. Our faith is perfected through endurance by allowing every trial and tribulation to strengthen our faith. Our strengthened faith will allow us to complete the journey with joy in our hearts knowing that our preparation was not in vein. Let us all prepare for the journey, it’s much later than you think. Oh Lord, please help us to prepare for the journey.

The Great Day of God Almighty

This is the great battle. This is Armageddon. This is the day that everyone will be exposed for who and what they really are. We see this final battle in two places in the Book of Revelation (Revelation 16:12-16; and 19:11-21) with a brief interlude in between describing the great prostitute, the beast, and the fall of Babylon. We also notice the great rejoicing in heaven because the battle will be won, and everyone will be exposed (Revelation 19:1-10), what a glorious day that will be. If we look at the first description of the battle, we see all the enemies of God seeking to destroy everything of Christ (Revelation 16:12-16), commonly referred to as Armageddon. The beast, the false prophets, and other world religions, namely Islam, will make their final push to eradicate the teachings of Christ by integrating them with false doctrine. When we look at the second description of the great battle, we observe the Word of God exposing the enemies of Christ and destroying them on the field of battle (Revelation 19:11-21). The penetrating eyes of Jesus Christ will expose the sins of the world. God’s Word spoken through His faithful remnant and the angels of heaven will be victorious over His enemies. Hallelujah!

I have been writing for many years in all of my writings how Satan and the spirit of Antichrist are destroying the truth. We have written for years that the acceptance of psychology in the church is destroying God’s children by making them captive to their false teachings, which never allows them to grow up Spiritually in Christ. Their false doctrine denies that God has the power to make His believers into a beautiful new creation where old things truly pass away (II Corinthians 5:17). They deny that God alone has given us everything we need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). In the end when God’s beloved children come out from among them and remain separate, then the evil will be exposed and destroyed by the preaching of God’s Word. Furthermore, the way for the Kings of the East, namely the Islamic hordes, has been opened for some time now bringing their false doctrine to be accepted by those living in the West, the Second Woe (Revelation 9:12-21). The false doctrine has been so integrated into the churches, public education, and the halls of government that their teachings are accepted as equal to Christian doctrine. In the end, when God’s beloved children come out from among them by no longer associating with them or listening to their false teaching, then the evil will be exposed and destroyed by God’s Holy Word.

God’s Word will be triumphant. It will be victorious over all of God’s enemies. The spirit of Antichrist and his beastly system will be exposed and defeated by the Word of God. For many years now most of the political system in the West, and the rest of the world, has been corrupt saying one thing and doing something entirely different. They have become experts in lying and cheating always casting blame on another person or the other political party. They have grown wealthy at the expense of the common man by legislating for their own financial benefit. They claim to be righteous and God-fearing, yet they are in league with the spirit of Antichrist, other world religions, and removing the name of Jesus Christ from their spoken prayers in their political chambers. It makes little difference who is elected for they all come from the same mold, no matter how many times they pretend otherwise. They continually fight with one another always blaming the other side for the nation’s woes. Yet, in the end, they too will be exposed when God’s beloved children come out from among them, refusing to vote, refusing to follow their godless policies, and refusing to obey their perverted laws. When God’s faithful remnant point out publicly that their sins have consequences, then they will be held accountable.

God’s Word will be victorious over His enemies when we come out from among them and become separate by no longer participating in their wickedness. As we near the end lawlessness will abound because laws are changed to accommodate a godless people. The world has completely shunned the law of God turning to every manner of perversion and teaching their brethren to do the same. Good, they have called bad, and bad, they have called good. They are completely unwilling to recognize their lawlessness, instructing their police departments to ignore certain lawbreakers because they have bigger problems to deal with as their cities are overrun with every manner of lawlessness. In the end, they too will be exposed when God’s beloved children come out from among them and stop being a willing pupil of their evil designs. God’s children will openly refuse to break any of God’s beautiful laws even if they are punished or ridiculed for it. The remnant will turn their back on all lawlessness and perversions, choosing to remain righteous before their God. In time, the lawless ones, once exposed, will be destroyed by the Word of God who will hold them accountable for every transgression. God will win the victory over the entire world. So, let’s take a closer look at exactly how God will do this through the display of His mighty power and through the faithful obedience of all His beloved children.

First, let’s take a closer look at God’s power. God’s great power and omnipotence can be seen in many things but nothing is more telling than God withdrawing His hand of protection and allowing the fallen world to reap the consequences of her many sins against a holy God. This can be seen clearly in every plague and the bowls of God’s wrath being poured out on the world for the past two thousand years. I have written extensively about each plague and woe descending upon the planet from opening a way for the Muslim hordes in the East to allowing humanity to suffer endlessly from its Satanic psychobabble. God is letting go of fallen humanity to suffer the consequences of their sins from allowing horrific storms to gigantic earthquakes and from unstoppable floods to coronal mass ejections from the sun. God is a loving God, but He will not allow humanity to destroy His amazing creations made in His image through false doctrine, dangerous pharmaceuticals, and harmful pollutants. In the end, God will expose every false prophet, every beastly system, and every form of lawless perversion allowing the birds of the air, signifying evil spirits, to eat their flesh (Revelation 19:17-18). God will be victorious over the enemies of Christ and the destroyers of humanity.

Secondly, let’s take a look at how God will use the faithful obedience of His beloved children to win the battle on the great day of almighty God. Before the fall of Babylon is complete, God will call forth His people. The Bible says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5). The only way we can expose their lawlessness and their perversions is by truly coming out from among them and being separate. When God’s children do this in mass by pulling their children from public school, withdrawing from their godless places of employment, and the government agencies, then we will get the world’s attention. When we speak loudly with one voice that the world is reaping what they have sown, then we will get their attention. When we stop trusting in the beastly systems established by the different world governments and only put our trust in God alone, then we will get their attention. Fallen humanity will also be exposed by preaching the truth of God’s Word that will act like a double-edged sword discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). It will lay bare all of their lawlessness and perversions in the sight of all men. The Word of God says, “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” God will be victorious over the enemies of Christ. Dear faithful remnant, won’t you join God today in this holy task of proclaiming the truth to fallen humanity about the consequences of their sins? Let us do it as true ambassadors for Christ with love in our heart, joy in our walk, and seriousness in our conversation.

Antichrist Spirit is Waging War With Christians

This is a prophetic alert that must be adhered to by everyone who claims to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. The war is real. It is a spiritual war being waged by the Antichrist spirit and the powers of darkness that has real-world consequences. This war will affect all of humanity and especially God’s children both physically and spiritually. The Bible says, “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Revelation 13:7). The war is real. It’s happening now. This spiritual war overcoming many Christians today can be readily observed in the great falling away (II Thessalonians 2:3). Christian denominations have been splintering for many years over a favorite doctrine or the divisive nature of some members but this pales in comparison to what’s happening now. Whole denominations are splitting over the acceptance of false doctrines or the abominable teachings of the Antichrist spirit. Many Methodist churches split off from the main body because they wanted to embrace those in the homosexual movement, inviting them to be a part of their community. Lines have been drawn, churches have been destroyed, and many believers have been cast back into the world.

Although this spiritual war grieves me greatly, which we will delineate further, there is a greater war being waged in the physical realm through unjust laws and outright persecution of God’s beloved children. Unjust laws tend to start small only affecting a small portion of humanity, unusually in an indiscreet location before blossoming out. Once they gain traction, then legislators are typically enlisted or coerced into supporting a new law that in time all must obey. We saw this with the LGBTQ movement that started very small as more and more ventured out of their closets. Eventually they have yielded tremendous power to force their unbiblical ways upon all of humanity, particularly in the West and specifically in spiritual Babylon. Sadly, this unmovable force has also targeted our precious school children introducing them to their perversion, then telling them that they have a right, to keep it from their parents. Clearly, the Antichrist spirit was behind this movement from the very beginning. The brave ones who have stood against these laws requiring them to accept these abominable perversions have been truly persecuted to the full extent of the law. Unfortunately, as we shall see this is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. It is reaching beyond what one says and does to what one is thinking or believing in their heart.

They have passed a new law in England that forbids a person from standing in a public place and praying. This is a new law, which judges the thoughts of another. This judgment was exercised because a woman was standing close to an abortion clinic, so they assumed that her thoughts, during her silent prayer, were breaking the law. The woman was arrested and charged simply based on her presumed thoughts. So, why should we be worried, it’s only one woman in an indiscreet location. We must remember that the Antichrist spirit always starts small waiting to gain traction. In time, it’s not unreasonable to think that we will one day be judged for our silent thoughts. This sounds like Orwellian and their godless thought police. Once we are judged, then we will be persecuted to the full extent of the law. Even before the Antichrist is revealed in the flesh, we will not only be judged on our words and actions but also on our silent thoughts that appear to be against all the perversions in the West. We will be judged for our biblical stance against the very harmful effects of psychiatry, psychotropic drugs, and shameful counseling. We will be judged for our presumed belief that all prescription drugs have side effects. We will be judged for our biblical stance against the so-called scientific proof of evolution. The Antichrist spirit will be very strong overcoming the saints by judging them for their alleged thoughts leading them to be persecuted.

Step by step the human psyche will be broken down to stop trusting in God altogether. From childhood to adulthood humanity will be taught to put their trust in the Antichrist system to solve all of their emotional and psychological problems. They will be taught to trust in big brother for their economic well-being and their safety from the ruthless Eastern countries who want to destroy their way of life. They will even be taught to trust in science to the exclusion of trusting in an unseen God. Their science and godless research on the internet have become their new god bringing them in alignment with receiving all that the Antichrist spirit wants to teach them. As they do their research on the internet or even on social media don’t think for a moment that the AI algorithm will not give them exactly what the Antichrist wants them to see and accept as the truth. It will be very dangerous to question their science or any of the norms put forth by the establishment that’s been in league with the Antichrist spirit for many years now. What’s coming will horrify you. Remember that the Antichrist spirit is the antithesis of Christ’s Spirit. Lawlessness will abound as they call bad good, and good they will call bad. Lawlessness in the coming days will do more than just shock our sensibilities, it will demonstrate the depth of Satanic cruelty that will be most difficult to imagine.

When the whole Western world is brought into alignment with the Antichrist spirit with no dissent, then the Antichrist will come in the flesh to be recognized by the faithful remnant. Our sure defense against the Antichrist spirit is to trust in God alone by having the faith of Jesus who never put any trust in man and his establishment. The Bible says, “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12). Having the faith of Jesus, we will reject their psychology knowing that their teachings come from the pit of hell. The faith of Jesus believes only in the anointed Bible that gives humanity everything they need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). We will not trust in their science which rejects the truth of God’s creation. Their science is leading humanity into a greater pit of confusion with one person saying one thing and another saying something completely different. This has opened the floodgates to believe every lie. It has already led the world to embrace the deep dark secrets of the demonic. From witchcraft to Eastern mysticism, many have become Satan’s willing apprentice. Those openly worshipping the devil have demanded their presence at religious festivals and a presence in public education to study their black arts inviting our precious school children to attend. Little by little everything is being openly accepted by the Western world, especially in spiritual Babylon, America.

Yes, there will be dark days ahead, but our strength, dear children, is in our love, obedience, and trusting in the faith of Jesus. When we face the spirit of the Antichrist, we will not yell, scream, manipulate, or even attempt to cast out demons to win the war. We will win the war by casting out immediately every evil thought or vain imagination, that is forcefully implanted in our minds by an increasing and powerful presence of the Antichrist spirit. We will win the war by becoming more like Christ and becoming less like the world which has plummeted to the depths of demonic immorality. God has given us 127 commands in the New Testament alone to show us how to be different from the world, which is our greatest weapon against the Antichrist spirit. The Antichrist spirit cannot overcome the true light of holiness shining forth from God’s beloved children. He can arrest us, charge us, and destroy us, but he has no power to overcome the light. Dear children, keep putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ by being obedient to every commandment. The more we become like Christ the more we recognize how demonic the Western world has become. As the Western world waits for the Antichrist to come in the flesh, they will be completely oblivious to the final bowls of God’s wrath being poured full strength on spiritual Babylon. God help us to stand firm in the coming year, 2023.

Trust in God’s Loving Providence

As we near the end of another year our minds are focused on the future and what it will bring. We may even look back on what we and the world have gone through with a great deal of trepidation. Even a blind man could see the horrible consequences of a world gone mad. Many appear to be on the verge of insanity doing the unthinkable, while others have become slaves to their technology or the free flow of drugs to control the masses. Humanity is in a sad state of affairs as they are being pulled from pillar to post with every tick of the clock. Time has become the new master demanding its allegiance, which is casting humanity further and further into the depth of despair. There is one underlying problem that is leading humanity to self-annihilation. All the governments in the world cannot stop it. All the self helps, and drugs cannot stop it. All the technology and advanced artificial intelligence can’t stop it. Only one thing can, trust. We must learn, once again, how to trust in the loving providence of God. When we do the clicking of the clocks will stop and we will be free at last to understand God’s loving providence for all of His called children.

We are free at last to look beyond the confines of time. Fallen humanity has invented precision time pieces to track time relative to our environment to maximize its workforce for greater productivity. Whereas the universe has no boundaries or limitations on time that can easily fluctuate in space-time stretching out to infinity. The Bible tells us that everything has time with no preset limitations (Ecclesiastes 3). When Jesus Christ walked upon the face of the earth, He did not allow time to control His actions. We often saw Him stepping outside the normal to do His Father’s business. Jesus demonstrated time and again that His ministry to others came first even when His Mother and brothers stood outside (Matthew 12:46-50). Jesus often did the unexpected from staying at the Temple when His parents left to praying all night on the mountain alone (Luke 2:41-52; Luke 6:12). Christ often demonstrated His trust in God’s loving providence even if it was at odds with the rest of humanity. We see this clearly in His healing ministry and overcoming the powers of demonic possession even when it interfered with the normal flow of His ministry and what others expected from Him. There was never any screaming, yelling, or repeating the same phrase over and over again. He brought order out of chaos allowing people to step out of time and observe the miraculous (Mark 5:25-43). After His resurrection, He stood completely outside of time itself as the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last (Revelation 22:13).

When we trust in God’s providence completely, then we too will step outside the normal and do the unexpected. We can be easily awakened at 4 am for prayer, or to complete a special task. Or, we can work into the wee hours of the morning to complete the Lord’s work with little or no rest. Our first lesson in learning how to trust in God’s loving providence is to allow Him to direct our path every moment of every day as we join Christ beyond the limitations of time and space. This takes a certain level of trust that could put you at odds with the rest of humanity. When we start trusting in God’s loving providence by ignoring our schedules and going through the doors that He has opened, then we will be blessed beyond comprehension. Some doors may seem a bit frightening but if we are obedient to the Spirit’s leading and go through the door, then we will witness one little miracle after another. We can either be led around by the world and its time-honored schedules or we can trust God to go where no man has gone before – by being filled with the Spirit. I have many stories where I was led by the Spirit to stop and interact with another individual, even when I was running late, and was blessed beyond measure. We must be sensitive to the Spirit’s leading if we want to experience the joy of God’s loving providence.

There is no fear when we trust in God’s loving providence. There is no fear because we know that our Father knows best to lead us on a path that will always benefit our eternal destiny (Psalm 32:8). Furthermore, it will allow us to immediately enjoy the benefits of our salvation. We will experience a peace that defies understanding and joy beyond anything we have known. When we trust God to lead us in His loving providence, then we have the assurance that He will work everything out for the best (Romans 8:28). As we face another year with so many uncertainties, we need to have this assurance. The trust level in the world has plummeted greatly causing many to mistrust everything. From increasing scams to hypocritical people on social media, who can be trusted? From lying politicians to the latest conspiracy theories, who can be trusted to tell the truth? From unscrupulous evil teaching in public education to outrageous propaganda on the world stage, who can be trusted? Fear is also running rampant from the possibility of a nuclear war to receiving all of the bowls of God’s wrath upon an unrepentant world (Revelation 16). God is still in control. He holds all of His precious children in the palm of His Mighty hands not allowing anything to interfere with His loving providence. If we lose everything God is still in control. Even if our bodies are swept away as dust in a blowing wind, God is still in control fulfilling our eternal destiny.

This will truly be a new day for those who keep in step with the Spirit and trust in God’s loving providence. We will not just sit on the sidelines and watch the world fall apart. We will fight by using spiritual weapons and not the weapons of this evil world. When we trust in God’s loving providence, then we will no longer judge as the world judges, but we will be willing to associate with anyone and everyone that God brings into our path by the Spirit. When God opens the door, we will have an opportunity to share the Gospel with great boldness. On the other hand, going through a closed door will be like casting our pearls before the swine rendering great harm to our souls (Matthew 7:6). Keeping in step with the Spirit will give us discernment if a door is closed or has been opened by God. Dear children, let us seek out the faithful remnant to join us in whatever work the Lord has called us to. This is where we will witness the miracle of miracles by allowing God to speak through us saying or doing exactly what’s needed to build our brothers and sisters up in Christ. If we are trusting in God’s loving providence and keeping in step with the Spirit, then we will look beyond the social barriers of social media and allow God to bring us to face-to-face encounters where the Spirit can do His greatest work.

Finally, if you are not known by God through salvation in Christ Jesus, then it is nonsensical to trust in His loving providence (Matthew 7:21-23). On the other hand, those who have been called and made into a new creation have developed a deep level of trust in God alone (II Corinthians 5:17, II Peter 1:3). When we trust God, then we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. For example, if the Spirit says to pick up this old man in shabby clothes walking down the street and inquire about his needs, then you obey. I had this happen to me early in my ministry when the old man said he was tired and hungry because he had been walking for a long time to reach his destination in another town. On faith, we brought the old man home, gave him a nice hot meal, and invited him to spend the night in our spare bedroom. What happened later in the evening was one of the greatest blessings we have ever received. To this day we believe that we had entertained an angel unaware that told us things that we have treasured to this day. When we follow the Spirit and trust in God’s loving providence, then we need to get ready to be blessed beyond measure. Yes, dear friends, we will have difficult days ahead, but great joy and peace are available to those who have learned how to trust in God’s loving providence. As we face the coming year, we will stand against the world and time itself, with no fear in our hearts, because we know that our God loves His eternal children.
