Thanks again John Haller 👍

I am a little disturbed by many seemingly grounded Christians who have seemed to have went off the deep end of singing the praises of President Elect Donald Trump. I am glad he won this election over the Clinton bunch. Trump is merely a man. If he does what he says he will do, God willing, then we could see good change. If he appoints truly good people to the Supreme Court that in itself can have long term effects on the future of this nation.
I only want to have everyone who reads this to ask themselves a question.
Many have heard the ‘prophecy’ given by the fireman. Many have been caught up in watching things unfold. Many have prayed for Mr Trump and for America all across the world. So many people have said, “Trump said he would build a wall and Ezekiel said that God sought a man that should make up a hedge (wall) and stand in the gap before me and my land.” The Lord says BUT, I FOUND NONE. The question we should be asking is…What does this all mean. Should brothers and sisters be putting on their party hats just yet? Calm down and let’s continue to pray and watch. Trump is merely a man. Good intentions and plans, maybe. Could they be changed to something opposite along the way, possibly. CALM DOWN, stop singing Trump’s praises and keep looking for the One True Saviour, Jesus Christ our Lord.
It appears the election has been won and sure we all felt a sense of relief and joy and give the glory to God. We need to continue focusing on God and not Trump. Keeping your eyes opened wide.
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.
I imagine that God was looking for a man like Noah. Jerusalem is in a terrible state as we enter this verse, among the list of sinful practices is: princes using their power to shed blood, making idols, oppression of foreigners and mistreatment of the fatherless and the widow, desecrating the Sabbath, men committing detestable offenses against women. God sought a man to stand in the gap so that the Lord could enact change in Jerusalem and bring life where there is currently only sin and death. God found no man that could do this, and thus Jerusalem is delivered into the hand of Babylon.

This is certainly worth the time to watch. Don’t listen to 10 minutes and assume you have seen before. Watch it all. Last night I watched it a second time and heard details I missed the first time!
God is moving…what will we do?
Thank you Pastor JD
There is really nothing to say. Nothing to add. It is perfect. God had and still has a perfect plan. God clearly loves His creation. He is more than a loving parent who tries to guide their child in the way they should go, in the way that us best for them. A way to protect them. Just as our children decide they know best and rebel and refuse to listen, we do the same. When will our loving Father decide He is finished and isn’t warning us again? When will He say, ‘now they will know, as I am finished warning and consequences have begun’.?
I am wondering if He has just said it? Enough.
His love and plan and warnings are so clear in the the posted scripture.
Turn to the Lord today, now if you haven’t already. The door is shutting.
I love you all.
Prepare to be blessed!
Guest Speaker Amir Tsarfati: Are You Ready?
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
Today’s verse is not offered to accuse or condemn, but to press us all toward considering our motives when praying, seeking or asking of God. Desires battle within us all. Christians need to be aware of the battle that is constantly going on for their heart. Deception and other temptation is waiting just around the corner where you least expect it. Do not allow this evil to trick your heart or mind into wrong motives. When you seek God, consider your motives carefully and allow Him to reveal to you the wrong ones…so they can be made right.

Can’t wait to get to Heaven where I am imagining that we will enjoy the simple sounds and colors and beauty of all of the Lord God’s creation just as HE meant for it to be. Simple and yet nothing simple about His perfectly created universe. It will be far better and far more than ANYTHING that our minds could ever dream.
Praise the Lord God Almighty for He is good and mighty…He is our Creator, He is our Saviour, He is the First and the Last, He is the Beginning and the End, He is the I AM, He is the Alpha and the Omega! He is everything we need and if we have Him we are lacking NOTHING!
Thank you Jesus! Thank you Lord for lifting the vail from my eyes so that I might see. Continue the work You have started in me. You are the Potter and I am the clay so continue daily to mold me and make me who You desire me to be. I pray You will open my ears so that I might hear the voice of only my good shepherd each and every day of this life and that I might have boldness to follow You and Your leading. That I would care only about pleasing You. That what this world and the people of this world think of me would matter not, that those things would be so overshadowed by Your glory that I wouldn’t even think about them and what they think but only what my King desires of me.
May my faith continue to grow, finally lacking nothing. As Abraham’s faith grew and he believed and yet did not fully have the faith to trust you to take care of everything on his journey in the beginning and yet he continued to grow and he fully trusted You with his son Issac that he LOVED so much and was willing to follow You no matter the cost. May I one day have that kind of faith. I won’t kid myself and say that I do because I only hope and pray I have the strength that can only come from You in order that I might be able to stand firm against any and all evil that comes against me. Not by my strength but by the might and strength that comes from my Creator my God, my King! In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray, AMEN.
