1 John 4:10-11

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

Is the USA in the Bible? Great American Eclipse Aug 21st, 2017 a Real End Time Sign? 

I have watched many different things on this subject.   I have dug into the scriptures on this subject.  I  may not always agree with everything this pastor speaks,  but then I don’t agree 100% with any pastor.   I will say that he said some things that I hadn’t heard until this video.   I pray everyone would listen to and at least consider what he says and pray about it and as we are always told to fo, KEEP WATCHING AND LOOKING UP!

Where Did the Word Come From?

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. 

Go and Tell Everyone!

Acts 4:10-12

let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead–by him this man is standing before you well. This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

The Picture that Comes to Mind

May God have mercy on us all.

We all see and hear of the terrorism spreading across the world at a rapid rate.  I  think it is natural to get angry and to spout off our opinions of what we must do to protect our nation’s and our family and friends and even ourselves against this sad ideology.  We read the plans behind the ideology.  Plans to dominate our entire world and to force their religion on any who think differently than they do. Plans are already in action even here in America.  Our colleges, our high schools,  our government and even our workplaces. Men, women and even their once innocent children are trained to hate and to kill and to take down anyone who believes differently.  Most want Sharia Law.  If they came to America and really wanted to live in freedom then Sharia Law wouldn’t be what they want to see.  They would go to a country in which that lifestyle is dominant and they could live very happily.  They have a large choice of places to do that.  So we must ask why do they insist on living in a nation with a completely different set of laws?  Why is our government trying to change our way of life ?  Why is our government not call it what it is?  Why do we see people speaking at our National Day of Prayer, against Christians?   Putting the Christian faith down?   It is a matter of time brothers and sisters.  So, we must make up our minds.  Be ready.  This isn’t going to change.  This isn’t going to get better.  I  believe this will continue at a rapid pace.  As the scripture in Leviticus states, we need to prepare to love them,  yes, even when they want to kill us.   Be ready to share the gospel with each one.  I cannot help but to think of the book of Acts  when Stephen was sharing the gospel and they all began to stone him.  As he was being stoned he cried out for our Father in Heaven to forgive them.  He then died.  You may ask, why not fight them back?  My thoughts first of all are we will only continue to fight and kill but we will not win this war here on earth.  When it truly hits in America we will be far out numbered.  Especially when you can clearly see our government is already infiltrated by plan and will therefore not be here to help the Christians.   We all know we only live here a short time.  The Lord wishes none to perish but to have eternal life.   When we are faced with this terrible time, I would say to each one (myself included), to share as many words of the gospel and ask the Lord to forgive them and have mercy on them just as He has given each of us.  You may die regardless, but one heart just might be penetrated and sofened and might then cry out to the one true God.  The one who has the power to give life and take it and power to raise one from the dead.  Has the power to change the heart of the corrupt.  That might begin with love that we can show to one who only wants death to us.  We are only able to love because God first loved us.

Leviticus 19:33-34
“‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them.  The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.

Commentary
I can’t help but think of “love your neighbor as yourself” when I read this verse. Here nestled in the Old Testament law is a verse that commands love for all who “reside in our land”. Because Israel was once slaves and strangers in the land of Egypt, the command is to treat foreigners in their land better – much better than they were treated by the Egyptians. God can and will do amazing things through loving relationship and community. The command to Israel, and to us today, is of love – because God Himself is love.

What Would You Do?

I like to think we would each stand for the right thing,  for the truth.   Do you KNOW Him? If you don’t know Him intimately then ask Him right now to speak to you , to reveal Himself to you.  He can and will if you are seeking Him in truth.   He has to do it and nothing that anyone might say can show Jesus to you or put you in the place where you KNOW that you KNOW that you KNOW you are a child of the one true God.  If you are unsure then start today and talk to Him and bathe in His word and He will open your ears and your eyes and remove the impurities from your heart.  He is waiting.   / If you don’t know Him in that way then ask yourself  this,  would you be in the crowd in yhe scripture below yelling CRUCIFY…CRUCIFY?  

John 19:6-11
As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, “Crucify! Crucify!”But Pilate answered, “You take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him.”  The Jewish leaders insisted, “We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God.”  When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid,  and he went back inside the palace. “Where do you come from?” he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer.  “Do you refuse to speak to me?” Pilate said. “Don’t you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?”  Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”
Commentary
Pilate wants nothing to do with the crucifixion of Jesus, yet the Jewish leaders continue forcing his hand. Pilate is afraid, and he is beginning to believe that there might be some truth to Jesus’ claim: the Son of God, Messiah. Jesus is the King that Israel always needed, He is the King that all people need in order to be in right standing with God. He is the ONLY one qualified to be that King – forever mediating our relationship with God.

Have You Been Lied To?

If you have been lied to and especially by someone close to you then you were probably wounded.  It is usually not something that heals overnight. 

People are going to let you down.  People might shred you to pieces.   They might claw your eyes out and then try to pretend it never happened.

When you have been there,  that is where the sweet TRUTH couldn’t taste or sound better.  Do you have 7 minutes for some sweet truth?  Just 7 minutes.

Thank you Pastor JD Farag
May God have mercy on us all.
Don’t lose hope,  for our hope lies in the Lord God,  our Savior Jesus Christ!

Middle East Prophecy Update August 9, 2015

Thank you again Pastor JD Farag,

“What Have You Become?”

Nothing else needs to be said.

Questions for God?

Are you unsure?  Do you wish to believe but just can’t quite get it?  I was once there. I even though I did get it.  One day I truly had to pour everything I had out before Him and had to truly trust Him beyond all believe.  Why? I was at a place that I literally had no other choice. I already believed but I  suppose I hadn’t trusted Him in a way it takes.  I began to truly learn what worshiping the Lord was. Then I began to fall in love with Him.  At that point I began to realize that I really hadn’t known Him before.  He began to change ME. Life is still imperfect but I have hope that one day it will be perfect with our King of Kings!   I pray that if you don’t know Him like that now that you will cry out to Him.  Soon that time will be gone.  The opportunity will have passed.   Seek Him now.

1 Corinthians 2:6-12
We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.  No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.  None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.  However, as it is written:“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard,and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him—  these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.  For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.  What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
Commentary
All who have accepted Christ have received the Holy Spirit to live within them. It is He (the Holy Spirit) who reveals to us God’s wisdom and “the deep things of God”. (vs. 11 NIV) Today, consider the importance of fellowship and relationship with the Holy Spirit. He is God within us, works to be in relationship with us, and provides understanding about the things of God happening in, around, and through our lives. He was released to dwell within people upon Christ’s return to heaven. He is a vital part of God’s plan for our lives.

Speak the Truth

image

It seems to be the way many are headed today.  What?  Down the wrong path.  Pastors are leading many to eternal damnation and not eternal life.  In the book of Jude we read in verse 4  that many will be in the churches that will try to tear the children of the Lord apart and cause division and lead many in the wrong way. (I PARAPHRASED THAT).  I find it interesting that it says, long ago many were designated for this condemnation.  God warned us about everything.  We have to pull ourselves away from the things of this world and make time for Him and His word so that we are not deceived and we know the truth when we hear it.

We seem to have a huge movement saying there are many ways to get to Heaven.  There is more than one way to God. NO, THERE ISN’T!  

We must be careful and not go with the flow.  We are responsible too. We cannot blame not knowing the truth is the fault of someone else or because of our pastor.   They WILL answer to the Lord themselves for leading the flock the wrong way.   We will also have to stand before the Son of Man and we will have to answer why we didn’t know we were being deceived.   You see,  if we are reading the Bible,  the words of the Lord God, and we are following its instruction and are praying to our Father in heaven and are seeking Him and His righteousness and His divine wisdom.  IF we are doing these things will we not know the truth when we hear it?  Will we not know when we are hearing lies from the pulpit?   Yes, it means you may have to separate yourself from friends and family who are following false doctrine. Sometimes the path to the Lord God feels lonely.  God is with us and you are not alone.  You will find others along the path, it simply seems a path less traveled.  That is because it is. 

REMEMBERthere’s but one way to the Father in heaven and we are each responsible to know when we are on the wrong path.  We each must choose whom it is we will serve.   If you are unsure then cry out to God and ask Him to reveal Himself to you,  to reveal His truth to you.  To open your eyes and ears to see and hear the truth according to Him and not man.  He will not withhold the truth,  or His wisdom from any who seek Him and pray and ask for His guidance.

Choosing Teams

I KNOW THIS IS LONG,BUT IMPORTANT.
Sounding the alarm….WHO WILL HEAR, WILL ANY LISTEN?
What do you think? Could America be the end time Babylon?  I used to not lean that way, but I am beginning to see things a little differently.
“Dear Lord God Almighty, please open the eyes of all Your children quickly!  Please give ALL of Your children the eyes to see and the ears to hear and I pray You Almighty God will give us the wisdom to understand! Lord Your word tells us that You will not withhold wisdom from any who ask but You will give it freely to all who ask for Your wisdom and understanding.  In the most Holy name of Jesus Christ we give thanks. …amen.”

Isaiah 13:1-22
The Judgment of Babylon

13 The oracle concerning Babylon which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.
On a bare hill raise a signal;
cry aloud to them;
wave the hand for them to enter
the gates of the nobles.
I myself have commanded my consecrated ones,
and have summoned my mighty men to execute my anger,
my proudly exulting ones.
The sound of a tumult is on the mountains
as of a great multitude!
The sound of an uproar of kingdoms,
of nations gathering together!
The Lord of hosts is mustering
a host for battle.
They come from a distant land,
from the end of the heavens,
the Lord and the weapons of his indignation,
to destroy the whole land.
Wail, for the day of the Lord is near;
as destruction from the Almighty it will come!
Therefore all hands will be feeble,
and every human heart will melt.
They will be dismayed:
pangs and agony will seize them;
they will be in anguish like a woman in labor.
They will look aghast at one another;
their faces will be aflame.
Behold, the day of the Lord comes,
cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,
to make the land a desolation
and to destroy its sinners from it.
For the stars of the heavens and their constellations
will not give their light;
the sun will be dark at its rising,
and the moon will not shed its light.
I will punish the world for its evil,
and the wicked for their iniquity;
I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant,
and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.
I will make people more rare than fine gold,
and mankind than the gold of Ophir.
Therefore I will make the heavens tremble,
and the earth will be shaken out of its place,
at the wrath of the Lord of hosts
in the day of his fierce anger.
And like a hunted gazelle,
or like sheep with none to gather them,
each will turn to his own people,
and each will flee to his own land.
Whoever is found will be thrust through, and whoever is caught will fall by the sword.
Their infants will be dashed in pieces
before their eyes;
their houses will be plundered
and their wives ravished.
Behold, I am stirring up the Medes against them,
who have no regard for silver
and do not delight in gold.
Their bows will slaughter the young men;
they will have no mercy on the fruit of the womb;
their eyes will not pity children.
And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms,
the splendor and pomp of the Chaldeans,
will be like Sodom and Gomorrah
when God overthrew them.
It will never be inhabited
or lived in for all generations;
no Arab will pitch his tent there;
no shepherds will make their flocks lie down there.
But wild animals will lie down there,
and their houses will be full of howling creatures;
there ostriches will dwell,
and there wild goats will dance.
Hyenas will cry in its towers,
and jackals in the pleasant palaces;
its time is close at hand
and its days will not be prolonged.

Think on these verses, meditate on them. Ask God to reveal truth,  His truth to you.  I pray for all of our brothers and sisters all over this world.  Many are and have been for awhile now, persecuted.  In America Christians will begin to HAVE to make a real choice . No more Luke warm.  You will be forced to stand completely for the truth of Jesus Christ or against the truth of our one true God.  Many of us have sat in the section mixed together rooting for this team then for that one while never having to really choose one side or the other.  Being able to stroke our egos and be LIKED BY ALL PEOPLE. Brothers and sisters,  this is going to arrive at a quick stop, so brace yourselves.  Prepare yourselves to choose THIS DAY whom you will serve.  What side of the line will YOU stand on when it comes to you and or your children being slaughtered? Choose wisely.  Because you can choose a little more time here in this sick and perverted world with your things or, you can choose eternal life.  You might lose your life here in this world if you choose Jesus Christ,  but you will gain eternal life with the One who created you and me and you will live forever in Heaven, the way God intended.  OR you can choose to keep your life HERE by denying Jesus Christ.   No one can be certain they will live long by making that choice or that the quality of that time here will be what you desired.  Let’s pretend it is good for 3.5 years then what?
Let me  make one thing clear brothers and sisters, the devil HATES YOU and  YOUR FAMILY.   He will try to lure you onto his side of the line by any means possible.  Lies are in his greatest abilities. 
We each must choose for ourselves and what we choose might divide you from all of your family on this earth.   But,  rest assured that if you choose Almighty God and stand firm putting on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the one who wishes to destroy you and not to love you and sustain you and prosper you.  God has the best future for His children who seek His face and seek to KNOW Him and then choose Him and go and stand on the side of the line with all of us.  This world will try to tell you we are a bunch of looney tunes,  a bunch of misfits.  Don’t listen to the world but get to know the voice of our Loving, Living God, the ALPHA and Omega and the I Am, the Beginning and the End , the First and the Last ! Get to know Him if you don’t already and He will guide you and lead you down the narrow path.  He will never leave you nor forsake you regardless of how dark it might get before He takes us to the home He has prepared for those who love Him.

I pray that we each one are beginning to prepare (Ephesians 6:10 through the rest of the chapter) for the spiritual and maybe physical battle we are about to truly begin.  Yes, even here in AMERICA.
Pray always.  May our God be with each
one who chooses wisely.

Time is Ticking

This is not aimed at anyone but instead to each one of us.

Sitting here saddened by the state of affairs this world is in.

Watching it snowball into a bigger mess day by day.

Everywhere I see…
Anger
Lust
Pride
Worship of things other than God
Theft
Drugs
Abuse
Lies
Mocking God
Selfishness
Hate
Backbiting
Calling evil good & good evil
People killing those they claim to love
Kill innocent and say they do good
No conscious
No shame
Unable to say I am sorry

They don’t know God so they do not cry out for Him!

How long will He wait? How long until He says enough?

Jeremiah 23:20
20 The anger of the Lord will not turn back
until he has executed and accomplished
the intents of his heart.
In the latter days you will understand it clearly. (ESV)

How far from the days of Noah are we?
How about the days of Lot?
Are we watching?
Suit up!  Ephesians 6:11
Spiritual battle is here!
Are you prepared?  Am I?

I pray for everyone who has yet to cry out for God to have mercy!
Pray for the King of Kings to show Himself to you.  To complete each of us. To take us from this evil world.  Bring us to our home. Turn from our evil ways and repent…
The Holy Spirit will lead your true heart.
Time is almost up!
