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.

When the World Goes Silent

Is the world holding its breath waiting for the next major catastrophe to happen or are they remaining silent hoping to stop a global panic? Almost every believer feels something deep within their spirit that something major is about to happen. Well, if we all feel that way, then what are we going to do about it? We can’t hide our heads in the sand or find the nearest cave to hide in, nor can we just sit back and ignore everything that we are witnessing in the world. We hear all the senseless chatter, but we don’t hear what’s really happening in the world. On the other hand, we are bombarded with politics, unbelievable lawlessness, and hateful rhetoric from the rich and powerful elites, but no one is speaking the truth about what’s really happening in the world. They either don’t know, or they don’t care. Even many of the so-called prophets are being ignored because their prophecies are being disproved over and over again. It unleashes unchecked pandemonium in the digital town square, casting the left against the right. On the other hand, silence has become louder than words, raising the level of anxiety and causing a rush to the counselor’s office. It’s time for true believers in Christ to listen and follow the Spirit’s leading to bring us back to a sense of normalcy. Continue reading When the World Goes Silent

The Final Prophecy

When the prophets stop prophesying it will be a dark day indeed. Although many will continue to prophesy from their own imaginations, it will not bring light to a dark world, it will only bring greater confusion. I have written about the coming Antichrist, the wiles of the devil, and the evolving Metaverse but nothing can really prepare humanity for the horrific days ahead. The prophecies in the book of Revelation have warned humanity for over two thousand years and it has only created greater confusion with one saying one thing and another saying something different. Yet, with spiritual eyesight, the book of Revelation is understood as a prophetic history methodically unfolding since the first century. The woes have unfolded, and all the trumpets have sounded from the beginning announcing the progression of each plague and woe poured out on unrepentant humanity. We have seen Antichrists arise in each age, some leading whole civilizations astray. We have witnessed the greatest wile of the devil, which has brought most of humanity into a lifetime of bondage to counseling and psychotropic drug addiction. This wile of the devil is also the first woe in the book of Revelation (Revelation 8:13-9:11), which I have explained in detail in my latest book, “God’s Loving Pursuit”.

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
