Word of God speak. Speak to your people. Show us what You, the Lord God Almighty, would want your people to glean from Your word.
In the name of Your son Jesus Christ I ask this and pray…amen.
I have not been able to shake the words from my heard when President Trump said in his speech while in Saudi Arabia…”Drive them out”! He said it several times and forcefully. Face it, I don’t really ever hear people speak like that here in America. Not using those words. I kept thinking that those words were in the Holy Bible. So this morning I decided to do a search on the phrase and see what it pulled up.
Read the verses below. Read them all in succession. I have inserted my thoughts again when I noticed a change. DRIVE THEM OUT, was quite an interesting search for me this morning.
Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
Exo 6:1 KJV
I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.
Exo 23:29 KJV
By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.
Exo 23:30 KJV
And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.
Exo 23:31 KJV
Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.
Num 22:6 KJV
Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt, which covereth the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out.
Num 22:11 KJV
Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.
Deu 9:3 KJV
Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the LORD hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.
Deu 9:4 KJV
Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Deu 9:5 KJV
For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Deu 18:12 KJV
Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.
Jos 14:12 KJV
As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out: but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.
Jos 15:63 KJV
Notice that from the following 3 verses that the children of Israel were now strong AND YET, the scriptures tell us they did not drive them but instead they used them in forced labor or slave labor. (That is what I gather from the word tribute. Other translations show it to be slave labor or forced labor.) So, they were strong enough to do what the Lord God instructed them to do but instead they stopped short of that. Maybe they became tired and decided that if they made them do work for them then it would be a win win. They could stop fighting and do some trade off. BUT, NOTICE WHAT THE LORD says in Judges 2:3. Seems it is still the same today.
May God have mercy on us all.
Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute; but did not utterly drive them out.
Jos 17:13 KJV
And it came to pass, when Israel was strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute, and did not utterly drive them out.
Jdg 1:28 KJV
But the Asherites dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: for they did not drive them out.
Jdg 1:32 KJV
Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.
Jdg 2:3 KJV
All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.
Hos 9:15 KJV
What am I talking about?
NO WORRIES…I WILL BE DEAD.
Not so fast….that was my first thought. ETA is fully in force by 2030. Wow…that is way out there. WRONG AGAIN…It is 13 years….DID YOU READ THAT? THIRTEEN YEARS! So, while I cannot fully wrap my mind around it yet, it might be wise if we take a deep breath and review this a little at a time. First we will begin with what Wikipedia says….
So what does all this mean? Probably way more than I can even imagine. I will attach one video from Rick Wiles. He just has his out there now but I first heard John Haller mention it this morning. I went out and began looking and figured listening to Rick would be cutting to the chase so I am not weeding through all of the video’s out there made by these folks. (While the year 2030 is thrown out there I also keep thinking about how the UN continues to have their next agenda being due in 2030. Go figure. Coincidence right? I personally do not believe in that.)
I will say that I believe it to be very important to watch at least from 39 minute mark. A couple of minutes in that spot might make you think you have already heard it but it is important as John Haller continues with the next segment on whom he met.
I was thinking about parents training their children.
The teachers who sincerely want students to learn morally right & wrong.
I have heard and even done so myself…”stop that or this or that’ll happen!” Often parents and teachers or those in charge do nothing, follow through does not happen. “But the next time…I mean it!” They quickly begin to not worry about what we say. They do as they wish.
Isn’t that the same thing as the REDLINE that our president drew?
I am not taking up for him BELIEVE me, but how is it any different than what many of us do everyday, or at least most of us have done at some point. THEN, I began to think about that as I was reading the words of our Lord. The living word. How often have we read about the judgement that will come? The famines? The pestilence? The terror unlike anything before? They are often referred to as warnings. I think we could also call them redlines. In Ezekiel 14 is just one example and you will find it below. You know, I have to say as parents we simply want to give our kids another chance. If we just tell them one more time. They sincerely said they had learned their lesson. I know that the word of the living God says that He wants that none should parish. While some never repent then there are many being saved. Dear brothers and sisters, He loves us. He loves us more than we could imagine. As all parents or teachers finally come to the point of “enough is enough”! No more chances and now you have to face the consequences. No video games, early curfew, grounded to your room or simply a timeout.
I wonder if America or any of the nations have finally just about reached the final warning? Read the passage below and as you read ask yourself what kind of sins have we as individuals or as nations who have simply “accepted” the sin. Killing babies by a name called abortion by the millions. Saying homosexuality is ok and forced to accept the sin and allow marriage. How is that different than saying sexual promiscuity is just fine or pornography is fine too. Everyone just throw the rules out the window. Do what you want. Just let not one of us forget, including myself, that when God decides enough is enough, as in the days of Noah, and He will. One day one of the warnings will be the final warning. I hope we are not going to blame God as the judgement comes upon us. We will have no one to blame but ourselves. Repent and pray and let Him forever change you before it is too late. Remember, regardless the time will come and EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE CONFESS that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
12 The word of the LORD came to me: 13 “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals, 14 even if these three men—Noah, Daniel and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign LORD.
15 “Or if I send wild beasts through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one can pass through it because of the beasts, 16 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate.
17 “Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its men and their animals, 18 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved.
19 “Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath upon it through bloodshed, killing its men and their animals, 20 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. They would save only themselves by their righteousness.
21 “For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments—sword and famine and wild beasts and plague—to kill its men and their animals! 22 Yet there will be some survivors—sons and daughters who will be brought out of it. They will come to you, and when you see their conduct and their actions, you will be consoled regarding the disaster I have brought upon Jerusalem—every disaster I have brought upon it. 23 You will be consoled when you see their conduct and their actions, for you will know that I have done nothing in it without cause, declares the Sovereign LORD.”
Philippians 2 will tell you and me and everyone around us what we need to know and where to keep our focus! Praise His name and share everywhere!
1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like–minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
PRAISE GOD FOREVER!
THANK YOU JESUS FOR FIRST LOVING US WHEN WE DESERVE NOTHING…..
First, what is a drifter?
-to wander aimlessly….go here, then go there…
-to deviate or vary from a set course
-a person who goes from place to place, job to job, etc., remaining in each for a short time
I will say it is hard to focus in these times! Look at the news. How long has it been so overwhelming?
Wars and rumors of wars
EGYPT and Morsi and the uprising that happened
Iraq on going war
Fast and furious
No more redlines
Passenger Plane DISAPPEARS…still not really found
Passenger Plane shot down over Russia
US border with Mexico non-existent
Tens of thousands coming across the border into US
Worry over possible threats while border is open
Disease coming across
School and mall shootings
Mass animal deaths
ISIS formed and seemingly overnight take over Iraq
USA president constantly trying to get Israel to sign peace treaty
Israel and Hamas go to war after teens murdered
Nation will rise against nations and kingdom against kingdom…
EBOLA…sure lets just fly them to the USA
We also have the blood moon tetrad on feast days.
I will stop here because I believe we get the picture. I know I have left off plenty.
The Lord tells us many times to watch and be ready.
Hebrews has a warning to pay attention!
We must pay more careful attention, therefore,to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.
How could we possibly DRIFT?
How do we keep from drifting?
Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
We have distractions coming at us fast and hard. It is impossible some days to keep up. It drains us. I am always hearing , that’s a false flag, that is to distract you from something else that the government is doing.
What if it is simply put, the devil using every means possible in these last days to keep us a little off balance, nervous and confused. What if ALL these things are just so we drift here and there always trying to figure out what is going on? What if we watch with a discerning spirit what is going on but at the same time let’s watch for The Lord God Almighty first and foremost! Keep our thoughts on Jesus first and we will not drift away.
Thank you Lord Jesus for the gift you give each of us. Rich or poor you love each of us the same. I pray for protection for our brothers and sisters all over the world. In the name of Jesus I pray…amen.
