We Are Forward-Looking People

There is something uniquely different about God’s children. We rarely look back either to reminisce or painfully evaluate past failures. We are a forward-looking people, a true anomaly in the modern world. This is something fallen humanity would love to experience all the time. However, if they are honest, they spend a great deal of their time looking back. They look back not only to evaluate past failures or reminisce but to do something far more damaging. Their obsession of always looking back, further than current events, enters into a deep chasm of captivity. Clearly, this abyss of one’s personal journey is not the same thing as the concrete historical events etched into the annuals of a nation’s heritage. It is, on the other hand, a collection of beliefs about oneself that they have adopted over time, which they believe can never change. It is a collection of past events that they believe have had an incurable effect on their physical or psychological wellbeing. As we shall see, these people tend to get trapped in the past causing them unending turmoil, which adversely affects their lives.

Their continued obsession with the past, especially the hurts, real or unreal, magnifies their pain exponentially allowing new powerful emotions to arise. With no warning, these emotions can bring forth disturbing thoughts of hate, revenge, and harboring thoughts of un-forgiveness. As these thoughts are played out again and again it can open Pandora’s box of every psychological problem known to man, thoughts that can also lead to hurting others or even hurting oneself. This obsession of always looking back well beyond current events can lead fallen humanity to even find fault with a Nation’s heritage or its recorded history following the same path of hate, revenge, and un-forgiveness. This is especially true if they are obsessed with the pain, real or unreal, magnified by public opinion or a few bad actors in our day. Either way, the psychological pain is real, which is causing people to strike back at one another with a ferociousness not seen before. It’s causing an unimaginable chaos in the streets of the world as they seek to rewrite history as if that would even make a difference.

As a nation of people, we need to learn how to look forward and stop our obsession with the past. Unfortunately, our fallen nature makes this very difficult, if not impossible, for most. Fallen humanity’s obsession with the past is helped in no small measure by Social Media, News media, and public education. The Good News is we have been given a proven way out of this bondage. When we believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, He will give us a clean slate. That is, every bad thought, every obsession, and every sin ever committed against a Holy God will be forgiven. The slate will be wiped clean by the precious blood of Jesus Christ who took our place on the Cross. All the sins of the whole world past, present, and future were placed upon Jesus, the Son of God who died in our place and then buried in a tomb. On the third day, Christ rose from the dead to give us a new life, a clean slate. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17).

We are forward-looking because we have a new life, with a clean slate. Sin no longer has power over us. Why look back on a sin that’s already forgiven? Why look back on an old life that is passing away and no longer has any power over us? Why look back on an old hurt that will no longer affect us? Why look back on an old psychological or emotional struggle that held us in its death grips for so long? No, the Bible says that old things pass away, that they no longer have any hold over us. Praise God! So, the key is, to look forward to our new life in Christ, then you will see the power given to you to shut the door to the old life. You will have power to say no to the old life with its many lies and beliefs that keep pulling you down to the cesspool experienced by fallen humanity, who struggle daily with their many emotional and psychological problems. Do you want that power to forget those past struggles and only look forward to your new life in Christ, then keep reading because it’s only God’s truth that will set you free?

The good news is that you will not need to do this alone. Jesus Christ promised to send us the Helper and that’s exactly what He will do. He will help you to put off the old life just like you would put off an old, soiled outfit. Step by step the indwelling Spirit will remind you not to look back or to dwell on a previous hurt by another person, an organization, or the government. He will teach you the power of forgiveness that will set you free from those who have wronged you or fed you lies for so many years. He will set you free from the many years of self-condemnation by learning how to forgive yourself. He will set you free from your past, believing that you can now become everything in Christ, with no limitations. The power of forgiveness will break the chains of slavery allowing you to always look forward, to be a forward-looking person. No longer being trapped in the past by learning how to forgive and forget is only the first step that must be taken concurrently with putting on the new life in Christ, by looking forward. We look forward to putting on our new life in Christ.

Now that we are free from our old life and no longer feel compelled to constantly look back at a life that no longer exists, then we want to fill up our life with the things of God. As we walk in each of His beautiful commandments, we begin to realize just how different they are from the fallen world. The Bible says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD” (Isiah 55:8). The more we put on our new life in Christ, the more we realize that there is a great struggle between the powers of darkness and the ways of God. Satan, our old adversary, seeks to control the entire human race by constantly filling their minds with the things of the world. He wants us so busy and our mind so occupied, that we have no time for God and our new life in Christ. We don’t have to look very far to see how he is doing this through the internet, social media, 24-hour news media, and entertainment on demand. When we come to Christ, then we no longer fill our minds with the things of the world, but with heavenly things so that we can participate in the divine nature (See II Peter 1:4).

Those who try to walk in the world and the Kingdom at the same time won’t need to worry much about the wiles of the devil. On the other hand, if you desire to only walk in the Kingdom then there will be an all-out war. The devil will bring to your memory, again and again, those who have wronged you. Satan is the author of every conspiracy theory having you chase one rabbit after another. He will do everything in his power to cause you to dream endlessly about a brighter future filled with riches, by utilizing the things of the world. Our spiritual weapons are mighty for pulling down strongholds, so let us cast down every vain imagination, every false teaching, every lewd entertainment, every social media post that doesn’t glorify God, and everything else that consumes our time to make us a pawn of the powers of darkness. Let us cast down everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Then let us bring every thought from this point forward into the obedience of Christ (See II Corinthians 10:5). Let us think our thoughts after Christ as we press onto the goal – facing forward and never looking back. Let me leave you with the words of Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).

Please join me in prayer …

 Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we need clarity of thought. We need to recall those Scripture texts that you want us to dwell upon, that would be useful in understanding the day in which we live. Help us, Oh Lord to ignore the distractions caused by others or by our occasional pains and keep our mind focused on you. We completely die to self and ask the indwelling Spirit to take full reign of our lives. We truly desire to become all that you want us to be in this life and in the life to come, in our Heavenly position with you for all eternity. We pray that you continue the transformation process by helping us to fully put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ. There is no greater joy than being filled with your Spirit and thinking your thoughts after you, to truly realize the blessings of what we were originally created to be, and to walk with our Creator. We pray that you help us to complete our tasks for today for which you have called us. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says,

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:5).

The Virus, Vaccine, and God’s Truth (Video)

What does God say? We have not done extensive research on the subject as scientists, doctors, and conspiracy theorists have done over this past year. On the other hand, we have turned to Almighty God, seeking His answers on this hotly debated subject. We come before God with a clean slate with no preconceptions and with no predetermined agenda. Our only interest is to receive the truth for God’s precious children and for the world at large if they are interested. After watching this very important video, please share it with others.

The Virus, Vaccine, and God’s Truth

What does God say? We have not done extensive research on the subject as scientists, doctors, and conspiracy theorists have done over this past year. On the other hand, we have turned to Almighty God, seeking His answers on this hotly debated subject. We come before God with a clean slate with no preconceptions and with no predetermined agenda. Our only interest is to receive the truth for God’s precious children and for the world at large if they are interested. There has been a lot of debate about where the virus came from. Did it come from a live food market or a Laboratory? Was it simply an accident or was it a biological weapon? Perhaps a bigger question and more importantly, at least for believers, is why did God allow it to happen in the first place? To answer that question, of course, we need to listen, really listen, to God alone (See Jeremiah 33:3). Although we can learn from God’s previous dealings with fallen humanity since the beginning of time, it’s essential to let God speak specifically to this one question that we are asking Him now concerning the virus and later in this article concerning the vaccine.

So, what does God say? His words come loud and clear. They come from the indwelling Spirit as we bend our spiritual ears to listen and also from God’s anointed Word, which are both in agreement. God has not changed in how He deals with fallen humanity. God is not an angry God sending forth bolts of lightning from heaven to sear the pants of His rebellious children. No, He is a loving God who sent His Only Begotten Son to show us the way. Unfortunately, most of fallen humanity has not listened to His Son, then or now. Nor have they listened to all the true prophets coming along and saying the same thing. Fallen humanity is reaping what they have sown (See Galatians 6:7). They are sinking deeper and deeper into the consequences of their sins, which is exactly how God’s wrath works (See Romans 1:18-32). So, hopefully, as you are beginning to see, it makes little difference as to where exactly the virus came from. The point is, fallen humanity was doing something or not doing something that they should have been doing that caused the virus to wreak death and destruction upon the world. It has always worked that way from the beginning.

Instead of following God in His righteousness, fallen humanity has followed Satan in his rebellion against God by walking in all manner of wickedness (See Isaiah 14:12-15). The virus along with the many other diseases are taking their toll upon humanity. Everything we do has an individual and corporate consequence, from polluting the air we breathe to polluting the water we drink and from administering chemicals and toxins into our bodies. We are destroying the earth (See Revelation 11:18). Remember, that when our planet was young with no toxins and chemicals to be digested into the body, some of the ancients lived close to a thousand years (See Genesis 5:27). Unfortunately, even if we decide to live a holy separated life, we will still rest under the same consequences of a dying world that’s polluted with chemicals, toxins, and natural disasters caused by planetary neglect. We now feel fortunate to live beyond seventy-five years in our dying ecosystem. So, let’s be clear, God did not cause the COVID-19 virus, but He did not stop it either, allowing humanity to reap the consequences of their many sins.

Ok, now we turn our attention to the hotly debated vaccine. What is it, really, and should I take it? Let me say upfront, I don’t believe the world is attempting mass suicide because even those in power, making decisions about the vaccine, have children, grandchildren, and love life just as much as you do. This is not some massive plot to turn everyone into zombies so that they can be easily controlled. Nor is this their grand opportunity to put a chip in every person making them worship the coming beast. Fallen humanity has faced this disaster the same way they have faced every disaster since the dawn of time. They had called forth their wise men, their sages, and even their gods to help them solve their problems. Even now, in our modern age, they will still seek the counsel of their learned professors, scientists, and doctors to solve their current dilemma. Have you noticed who’s missing? No one is calling upon the One true God to seek His counsel (See Jeremiah 33:3). They are doing their research, but they are not asking God.

So, what does God say? Thus, saith the LORD of host, “I know that some of you are trying to partially do the right thing. You are trying to clean up your environment by reducing some of the toxins and chemicals that are killing your planet and my children. I know that you are way over your head with this virus because everyone knows that you have changed your methodology in creating this vaccine. It’s not a secret. I must tell you that it will have limited success because every soul’s biology [and DNA] are not exactly the same because of all the toxins from your environment, the chemicals from other drugs they have used, along with many other factors. I don’t fault you for trying to find a cure, but I do fault you for not seeing the major problem that has caused the virus in the first place.” From listening to the indwelling Spirit and my study of Scripture we know that each person must decide for themselves if they want to take the vaccine because as stated each person’s chemistry is different. It should be a choice. However, I believe it’s essential that we do one more thing if we ever hope to survive these plagues descending upon fallen humanity.

We must repent or the plagues will only get worse. I believe we are partially trying to do the right thing by cleaning up the environment but there’s one thing we lack causing things to go from bad to worse. Fallen humanity is still promoting their many prescription drugs for God’s children that have harmful side effects because their bodies were not created for all the toxins and chemicals. Fallen humanity must repent of all their gross immorality even if you attempt to justify it by legalizing it. Just because you have legalized abortion, homosexuality, the transgender, theft, corruption, along with many other sins does not justify them. If you think this virus is bad, what’s coming soon will horrify you. We must all repent before our most Holy God seeking His forgiveness, while we still have time. Please stop debating this topic, putting forth additional conspiracy theories, and get busy calling everyone to repentance. That’s the only true thing that will help. Repent now and seek God’s direction on taking the vaccine, it’s not for everyone, and may not be for you. Let it be your choice alone and then stand firm trusting in God’s mercy.

Please join me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray for all of your children to stop their endless research for the truth by following the methods of the world. We pray that they will stop their endless research on Google, news media, and social media as if they were their gods. On the other hand, we pray that they will call unto you, the One true God, who has all the answers they seek and so much more. Thank you, Lord, for giving us the indwelling Spirit that always speaks with a soft voice of clarity, that’s so unlike the many confusing voices in the world. As you speak, for those who have studied your holy Scriptures, they will often receive the memory of a verse of Scripture that’s in total agreement with what you are saying in the Spirit. When you speak you always open up the Scriptures to a deeper, often hidden, meaning that we did not see before but so majestically aligns with the rest of Scripture. Thank you, Lord, for not changing but always being the Constant in the universe allowing your beloved children to see the deeper truth if we just ask you and stop our ridiculous research. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3).

Know the Watchman on the Wall (Video)

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. After watching this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.

Know the Watchman on the Wall

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. Until that happens my friend, we must remain calm, we must remain watchful, and above all, we must listen for the voice of the Watchman. We are confident that God will do nothing without letting His prophets know so that they can sound a clear and decisive warning. The Bible says, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Unfortunately, we are living in a day with many contradicting voices, some saying one thing and some saying another. There is no clear decisive voice but only a multitude of voices creating greater confusion, which has been the devil’s plan from the beginning. The greater the confusion the less we will be able to hear the warning. Continue reading Know the Watchman on the Wall
