Don’t Give Up on God

We are now clearly in the time of the falling away, especially in the West (II Thessalonians 2:3). I believe that many have simply given up on God. Perhaps they have forgotten or haven’t ever known that God loves them deeply. Perhaps with the discovery of the size and depth of space with its infinite distance, mankind feels that they are too small in the sight of God, or they feel insignificant. They ask candidly, “Does God believe in me?” With all the horrific pain in the world, many ask does God really care. They ask, “How can a loving God allow this tragic circumstance, happen to me?” Every day it gets tougher for humanity. Every day many wonder if they can make it another day as the world grows increasingly more dangerous from unchecked lawlessness to the threat of a nuclear war. Every day many experience the trauma of emotional and psychological problems. Every day many feel the brunt of the many different natural disasters destroying their homes, their livelihoods, and even their loved ones. Let’s be quite clear Satan, our old arch-enemy, wants us to give up on God. His one aim is to destroy your relationship with God.

We have seen very clearly that the world’s answer to emotional and psychological problems also leads people to give up on God. When people are told that it’s impossible to break away from their past, then they are led to give up on God who has the ability to make all things new. When people are told that they must continue with psychological counseling and psychotropic drugs for the foreseeable future or the remainder of their lives, then they are led to give up on God. As we shall see, God has wonderful counsel from His anointed Word that will deliver you quickly from every known emotional and psychological problem. Furthermore, when we are faced with a physical problem that the world cannot solve or even identify, then it becomes easy for most to give up on God. Instead of turning exclusively to an all-powerful God, most will settle immediately for a lifetime of prescription drugs without giving God a chance. Most are unwilling to struggle with the slightest pain that could carry them to the foot of the Cross for God’s miraculous healing. Most in our modern world have already given up on God as they turn almost exclusively to humanity to solve all of their problems.

Please don’t give up on God, for I will show you a miracle of miracles that will change your life forever. You will never see things the same way again. Faith opens the door to amazing possibilities. Before we get started, let me be very clear, I can only show you how to open the door. The faith must be yours. Moreover, I am not telling anyone to stop their medication or worldly counseling. This is a decision that every called believer in Christ must make based on their own personal faith. If I tell you the truth that Peter stepped out on faith and walked on water with Jesus, then I can say with all assurance that faith alone can open a door to the miraculous. Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. To possess the faith that I am speaking of can only come from God through the indwelling Holy Spirit. To attempt faith without the Holy Spirit given to us through our salvation in Christ is meaningless and very dangerous. To do so, invites the powers of darkness, working through many different disciplines such as Witchcraft, Occultism, and the New Age, to control your life, which can also seal your eternal destiny in hell.

The starting place in opening the door of faith always starts with the call (Romans 8:28). Yes, the souls of fallen humanity will hear the call, most often, through a clear presentation of the Gospel, which has power unto salvation (Romans 1:16). They sincerely feel that God has spoken to their heart inviting them into His Kingdom. I say most often because on occasion God has called certain ones directly to fulfill His mission on the earth. The power of the Gospel leads to faith believing the message that God’s Holy Spirit will indwell the believer. They believe the message that His job is to make us into a new creation where old things truly pass away and give us marvelous gifts to use for the furtherance of the kingdom here on earth. We also accept the truth that we have been forgiven of all previous transgressions. If we don’t get beyond these fundamental beliefs, then we will never witness the power of God to re-make us into the kind of people we are called to be. On the other hand, those who firmly believe in the truth, then they will recognize the power of God to transform their lives. They will recognize the great power that comes from trusting in God’s loving providence. They will learn how to accept each circumstance, even if it’s most difficult, by believing that God has not abandoned them but is still with them giving them needed direction and encouragement to see it through with peace in their hearts.

As believers in Christ, we must think about what lies ahead if humanity still refuses to repent of its many transgressions against God’s Holy Law. There will come a time when it will be nearly impossible to secure your prescription medications. This will have a tremendous effect upon fallen humanity who has become dependent on the medication and in most cases addicted to them. Although pain and suffering will be nearly unbearable, it is the psychological trauma acted out in unchecked lawlessness that will have the greatest effect on society. If we add to this the scarcity of counselors to calm the masses, then insanity and suicide will dramatize their total dependence on the drugs. I would like to encourage everyone, both unbelievers and Christians, to work with their doctors to come off all of their medications as quickly as possible. I sincerely understand that in certain cases this will be impossible but for most, it will be possible. It will be possible because most all medications only treat the symptoms and not the cause. It’s common knowledge among most doctors that most problems will simply go away on their own with most medications designed only to treat the symptoms. For those medications that can really treat the cause, then we would need to pray for God’s grace until medications can be found. We will need to remind ourselves, “…that all things work together for good to them that Love God, to them who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

The true believers in Christ, have learned how to depend on God for their entire body, mind, and spirit. They have the assurance that God, our Heavenly Father, has us in the palm of His hands. Many of these dear saints have already witnessed the healing power of God. They have already witnessed miracles upon miracles in their lives as God truly works all things together for good for those who love Him. So, whenever they face an emotional or psychological problem they immediately turn to His Word for comfort, encouragement, and necessary direction to cause their problems to flee. They have learned the miracle of deep prayer and meditation that brings us into submission to the Lord through the indwelling Spirit that always leads to tremendous joy and a peace that defies understanding. They have learned to keep their mind stayed upon the risen Lord as they face the many and sudden pains of our physical bodies. They have learned both the great power of miraculous healing and the power to graciously accept whatever pain we must endure. They have learned that those enduring pains can help us make great strides in our spiritual growth or simply learn a needed lesson. Either way, we have learned to trust completely in God’s loving providence. We have not given up on God. He is the source of all our strength.

Anticipating the Glories of Heaven

What is your anticipation of heaven? Most of the western world has been captivated by the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, causing many to ponder their own deaths and the hereafter. Although they may not be vocal about their own coming deaths and their anticipation of heaven, I suggest that many are pondering those thoughts deep within their own hearts. So, I am asking you to pause for a moment of silence, look to heaven, and let us ponder the glories of heaven together. Let us approach the throne of grace together asking our Lord Jesus Christ to show us the unspeakable glories of heaven. As our static existence measured by time no longer exists, we enter into the glories of eternity. We are no longer captive to time and space but set free to experience all of creation in a timeless environment. Can you imagine the glory of not being locked into time, but having the ability to travel to the stars in the blink of an eye? I hope and pray that every believer in Christ has thought much about the glories of heaven and has their own anticipation based on their personal walk with Jesus Christ and Holy Scripture.

Perhaps my greatest anticipation about the glories of heaven is that sin will be totally eradicated. I long for that day when we will no longer need to struggle against the old sin nature and the temptations from an evil world.  I long for the day when we will no longer need to resist the wiles of the devil, who has become an expert at causing emotional and psychological problems with fallen humanity (Ephesians 6:11-12). To me personally, this would be the glory of glories allowing everyone to experience the fullness and majesty of God’s love flowing uninterrupted to us, His beloved children. This would also make the meeting with distant family members and old friends beyond memorable. As God’s love flows through us to others old squabbles, misunderstandings, and hurt feelings would no longer exist. Old emotional and psychological pains that held tightly to our earthly minds and bodies would dissipate to be remembered no more throughout all eternity. I do believe we will hold onto the essence of humanity and all of our wonderful memories that would be exemplified in heaven. We would continue to cherish the memories of a gentle breeze, the warm sun, and deeper meditations with our Lord. We would remember those many little miracles that demonstrated God’s loving providence in the midst of a beautiful world dominated by evil.

At the very gates of heaven, we are overjoyed with the fulfillment of our anticipation. Unlike our previous existence on Earth, we discover quickly that we are not separated by rank, position, or any other barrier. The purity of our hearts will allow us to see God (Matthew 5:8). What a wonderful honor to be brought into His presence. We instantly realize the true friendship we have in Jesus Christ (John 15:15), the Apostles, and all those who have risen to great heights while on Earth. How marvelous it is to walk in the same company of the great preachers, prophets, and women of God that touched so many lives on Earth. What a wonder it is to be in the presence of those God-fearing Kings, Queens, and great leaders that always humbled themselves under the righteous hand of God. We anticipate the glories of heaven in the oneness of all exemplifying the love of God with everyone. What joy it will be to sit at the same table, eat hardily, and fellowship with one another. No longer will anyone feel the horrible pains of loneliness. The oneness is inclusive as all work, serve, and worship together with great joy.

Yes, we anticipate new bodies that could be similar to our original creation before the fall, that was created to last for all eternity. Remember, the trespass that led to the process of dying (Genesis 2:17). We would no longer need to propagate the race as it was before the fall. Remember, the trespass that led to the pain of childbirth (Genesis 3:16). Our new bodies would be immune to any harmful viruses, diseases, or contagion either in heaven or upon the new Earth. We would be under the loving protection of our Heavenly Father throughout the entire Universe. This would be the greatest joy to never get sickened and die of old age. The old growth pains would be something of the distant past. Our bodies would be fit for service in the heavenly kingdom and work in the New Jerusalem, the same physical size as the old continental United States, magnificently coming down to the new Earth (Revelation 21:9-27). No more wars or rumors of war, and no more global warming as we all work together as one. No matter where we end up in our Universe, we will all work together for the glory of God. We will endlessly praise God for defeating the enemy of our souls for all eternity (Revelation 20:10).

We will also be eternally grateful for separating all evil people who have openly and unashamedly rejected Jesus Christ as the Lord. There will be a great gulf that separates them from those in heaven, making it impossible to transcend (Luke 16:26). It appears in the Words of Christ in speaking with certain ones beyond the gulf while in heaven that there is no grief ensued by their own decisions to be where they have chosen to be by their own actions. Furthermore, there is clarification in the book of Revelation that even on the new Earth there will be no evil for the city gates of the Great City, New Jerusalem, will never be shut (Revelation 21:25-27). They will be open for anyone to travel freely in or out of the city, or to any other distant planet in the Universe. In our anticipation of the glories of heaven, we trust in God’s loving providence to render unto all, their own free choice as to where they will end up for all eternity. We serve a righteous and loving God who will always give each person their heart’s desire. I believe that everyone who is called into the Kingdom will have this tremendous desire to love and serve God in His Heavenly Kingdom or the New Jerusalem on the new Earth. We will all anticipate the glories of heaven.

The good news is we don’t need to wait upon heaven to begin our journey as a new creation. We can start the journey now through faith. Do you want a foretaste of what heaven will be like and what our amazing new bodies will be like, then you can begin today through faith. I can assure you that when you begin the journey of transformation in Christ, then you will have no desire to turn back. It takes great power to transform your life and that is miraculously accomplished through faith in the Gospel. The simple, yet powerful Gospel, says that Jesus Christ is the divine Son of God, who came to Earth to teach us about His Father’s Kingdom. Jesus Christ, the anticipated Messiah, willingly died on the Cross for all of our past, present, and future sins. As Christ hung on the Cross, all of our sins were placed upon Him as the sacrificial lamb, then His Heavenly Father poured out His wrath upon Christ who became the substitute for our sins. On the third day, Jesus Christ rose from the grips of death to give us a new life in Christ. If we say we believe this Gospel, then we pick up our cross and die to self, the old sin nature, so that we can be made spiritually alive in Christ, which is the transformation. Christ will not leave us alone but sends the Holy Spirit to dwell in us, teaching us, and helping us to grow spirituality from one degree of glory to another.

The only ones in the new heavens and the new Earth are those who have been transformed by the power of the Cross, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The moment we are transformed in Christ, then “We anticipate the glories of heaven.” Let me encourage you to begin your transformation today and not be cast out to a place separated by a great gulf from the glories of heaven. We have not even mentioned the horrors of hell. Everyone will die, so it is good that you make your plans today on where you want to spend eternity. All of Great Britain and most of the Western world have been confronted with death as they have queued to see their beloved Queen Elizabeth II lying in state. Please make your decision today while you still have time.

Revelation Revealed in an Epiphany

I have studied the book of Revelation and taught its truths for 45 years. I have also written and published three books on its timeless truths. Today I will be presenting an amazing overview of the revelation that I received from the hand of God in what I have called an epiphany. I am not certain if I was caught up, had a theophany, or had an epiphany, but I am certain that it was different from anything that I have ever experienced before. For many years I have heard the still small voice of God through the indwelling Spirit, but this last experience was totally different. Typically, the indwelling Spirit will give us the correct words to say or write at a given moment in time. The Holy Spirit can also help us see the depth of Biblical doctrine and have a clearer understanding of Biblical prophecy. We can build our doctrine over time, developing a larger picture of God’s past, present, and future dealings with humanity. However, we don’t often get the big picture all at once, including all of time, which is understandable because we live in the here and now. We live in the present. On the other hand, Christ said that He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning, and the end (Revelation 22:13). He is not locked into time but sees it all, the past, present, and future all at the same time.

The Epiphany was different in that I saw the entire truth instantly from the beginning to the end. You might say, “I got the big picture in an instant.” Another thing that made this encounter so different was the swooshing noise at the end of my experience where I was instantly brought back to my reality. This Epiphany, which I recently had was during my morning prayers and meditation. Instead of just examining the past, the present, or the future, the epiphany was remarkably different. It instantly came in a flash giving me the big picture as seen by God. On a timeless canvas, it unlocked and majestically painted all of Christian history from beginning to end. It instantly awakens the mind and spirit within man to see God’s beautiful plan, which I unknowingly mostly captured in my latest book, “God’s Loving Pursuit” where I take the reader on a journey from the creation of the world to the end just prior to Christ glorious return in glory. So, what truth did I see in my epiphany? In an instant, I saw that the fallen world cannot eradicate evil. No matter how hard humanity tries from passing new laws to enacting new policies to control the masses, they will fail. All humanity can do is push evil back, control it, lock it up, or cause it to hide in the hearts and minds of humanity. Fallen humanity cannot eradicate evil.

Finally, this epiphany has confirmed my long-standing interpretation of the book of Revelation. To properly understand the book of Revelation we must look at the entire book as a series of eschatological events that are currently unfolding throughout the entire timeline from the resurrection of Christ to His return in glory. As each eschatological event unfolds starting with the seven churches that represent all the church ages from the first century until now. We are currently the Church at Laodicea. Other events have also started to unfold throughout Church history at different points on the timeline and will continue to do so until the end. Every eschatological event, contrary to when it actually started will all end at the same time. I have previously written about most all of these unfolding eschatological events, but for the sake of brevity, we will only look at one in relationship to my epiphany. The eschatological event we will look at is the sounding of the fifth trumpet, which is the first woe. It is called a woe because it sorely affects all of fallen humanity (Revelation 8:13-9-2). I have entitled this woe “The Silent Pandemic of Mental Illness,” which I have written profusely about in blog articles and in my latest book. Satan introduced this most destructive lie many years ago in Bagdad, Iraq, in 750 AD. This was the beginning of psychology and humanity’s failed attempt to overcome the old sin nature.

I have written in detail about how psychology, its counseling, and its administering of psychotropic drugs have failed humanity. Simply put they have tried to overcome the old sin nature, which is quite impossible. This has been proved by how mental illness has turned into a worldwide pandemic spawning insanity, suicide, and horrific lawlessness. It’s a wonder that the human race has lived so long. They are always at war with one another allowing their cluttered minds to think the worst of their neighbor. It’s so tragic that they have rejected the love from God that allows them to see others in a different light. It’s so tragic that they have not trusted in God to show them so gently how to remove the scars from their own past and experience the wonder of a new life in Christ. It’s so tragic that they still follow the world in attempting to change people without ever touching their hearts. As lawlessness increases tenfold and deep-seated psychological problems cause people to become alarmingly more aggressive, it will grow horrendously more difficult to maintain your Christian composure. The temptation will be great to hide your Christianity or strike back with impunity. I am brokenhearted that most of Christianity who has the message of the new life in Christ still refuse to share it with others. Christ came with the eternal message that through faith lives can be powerfully changed and evil permanently eradicated.

It will be most difficult when most of humanity loses their ability to function in the real world, from their inability to perform the simplest of tasks to demonstrating a caring attitude. This is when many will begin to escape their reality in the Metaverse. On the other hand, God’s Kingdom can and will completely eradicate all evil in the world by changing hearts. Jesus Christ and His Gospel can and will powerfully do this through faith, changing the hearts and minds of humanity. I believe this was the vision that the early Christians had, which was the driving force behind everything they did. This was the driving force that allowed them to stand firm against their persecutors. The Gospel message will prevail as it briefly did in the first century as outlined in my latest book, “God’s Loving Pursuit.” The point is every person who claims to know this truth must be focused only on this mission and not on what the world is trying to accomplish through laws and mandates. The sad part is, we have forgotten this truth, we have gotten off mission. When a church forgets this mission of saving souls to be transformed into the image of Christ then it is no longer a church but only a social club. It seems like the whole world is trapped on social media following the crowd and not making any real difference in the life of others.

I have written about all the trumpets, the woes, and the bowls of God’s wrath as they are currently falling upon unrepentant humanity. We have briefly looked at the first woe but let’s not forget the second woe, the sounding of the sixth trumpet, which also began in the first century as a heresy and later materialized as the Muslim invasion. This is a threat that will continue until the end when they join forces with Russia and the rest of the Kings of the East to rain down fire and brimstone upon the final Antichrist in the West. Throughout the entire end time, God’s faithful remnant will continue steadfastly as seen in the following passages in the book of Revelation 12:17, 14:12, and 18:4-5. The epiphany was true and very relevant for our day. It encourages God’s children to stand firm throughout the Great Tribulation believing that only His message of salvation will ever eradicate evil in the world. We can tell the world why they are experiencing all of their problems, but they also need to hear the solution. The only thing that can overcome the old sin nature and experience life to its fullest is salvation in Jesus Christ. We must get back on mission and share the simple, yet powerful Gospel, with everyone we know. Yes, we are in the last church age, the church of Laodicea, but we are also the faithful remnant to the end.

Please join me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh Lord, that you open the eyes of the lukewarm church who has been blinded by the world. They are happy that their pews are occupied, and their coffers are full but don’t realize that most of their members are carnal. Because of their carnal mind, they are unable to keep the law of God and need constant counseling schooled by the methods of psychology. Open their eyes to see that their inability to keep the law of God is because their members have not completely surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Help them to see that when they truly die to self, allowing Christ to make them into a new creation then it gives them both the desire and the ability to obey the law of God. True believers in Christ may need an occasional exhortation, encouragement, admonishment, or a loving rebuke, but we, Oh Lord, know that they don’t need constant, non-ending counseling allowing them to remain as little more than babies in Christ or of a carnal mind, which is an enmity to God. We pray that you awaken the lukewarm church. We are truly the church of Laodicea. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be” (Romans 8:7).

Christian, Hold the Line Empirically

Fundamentally, through observation and experience, Christians can hold the line against the works of the devil. This is not a theory or pure logic; it is an empirically tested method. There was One who came beyond time and space to show us the way, a way that has all been lost in our modern age. We live in an age of theories and logic. We have come to rely upon our highly technological age to chart our path. We have bowed down to the so-called proven theories of the Scientific Age. All this is leading humanity further and further into darkness. To chart our own path, will always lead us into satanic bondage, and further away from God. Our observation started two thousand years ago by following Jesus Christ on the dusty trails of Judea and then continued by following the writings of those who originally followed Him. We followed their experiences in putting off the old life, which barred the way of the devil. Then we followed their written experiences of putting on the new life in Christ, which overcame the works of the devil and opened a new horizon. This has all been lost in the new age that’s leading the entire world into slavery to the powers of darkness. Continue reading Christian, Hold the Line Empirically

Listen to the Voice of God (Video)

Welcome to the new year 2022, it will be unlike anything we have ever experienced. Therefore, it is essential to hear only what God has to say about what’s happening now and what is coming soon upon the world. So, we bend our ears to hear the voice of God. We listen intently to hear that still small voice that comes ever so quietly from the indwelling Spirit. After watching this eye-opening prophecy on my secure website, please share it with others
