The Five Coming Judgments 

Anyone that has read the entire Bible and done any in depth study on the judgments God allows to take place in a nation that has turned away from Him and followed evil, has to look no further than the cities and people’s and nations of the Old Testament.

Over and over again the same judgments are applied after many warnings from the Prophets when the people have had plenty of time to repent. And today, just like the days of old, the people do not want to hear anything negative and turn a deft ear to all the warnings. Most churches are clueless and the majority of Christians are not prepared for what’s coming. They killed and jailed the Prophets of old and today they are killing the voices and are beginning to persecute today’s Watchmen who are warning of impending doom if this nation doesn’t repent and turn from her wickedness.
What were those judgments and how were they carried out? The five main judgments were always the same: Drought, Economic devastation, Famine, Pestilence, and finally Enslavement, brought on by conquers from other nations.
America is heading exactly in the same direction as Israel did several times over in the Old Testament. First is Drought in various areas. Crops begin to fail. Livestock, including cattle and sheep, goats and pigs and fish and fowl and all wild animals like deer start dying off for lack of water. Fields of corn and wheat and orchards of fruit and vegetables wither and die. Fish float to the top and wash ashore.
We already had a massive Midwest crop failure a couple of years back and the storage bins and granaries and no longer full. The drought out west is taking a toll now and prices are starting to skyrocket. The valley of fruits and vegetables is drying up.
Second is an Economic Crash brought on by the wickedness and evil of the leaders and those in charge who lust for money and power at all cost, spending money or causing wars to line their pockets and stealing from the masses, driving the economy into the ground until there is no way out. When the nations economy fails, all the people suffer and that nation is destroyed from within.
Third Is Famine. When there is no water, crops don’t produce and animals are sold off or die. Soon there won’t be enough food for the gluttony of Americans and only the rich will be able to afford setting a feast at the table. This will cause riots and murder as the society crumbles into another Wild West where every man is for themselves and violence rules the land. Fires and looting and killings will be daily occurrences as people will do anything for food to eat and water to drink.
Pestilence is fourth and in many ways coincides with drought and famine. Diseases emerge, like the bird flu that recently caused over 50 million chickens an turkeys to be destroyed. Eggs skyrocket in price and become rare or hard to find as laying hens are euthanized. Lakes and streams dry up with the stench of the dead and water from taps begin to smell and become toxic. Drinking water becomes like gold and water for bathing and flushing is cut off. Dust fills the air and birds fall from the sky. Rats and varmints scurry the streets looking for water and food bringing diseases and spreading their pestilence. Earthquakes and national disasters play a big part with fires sweeping out some areas and floods other areas
And when the country is at its most vulnerable point. Invaders of evil see it and come in with a vengeance bombing and killing and destroying everything in sight enslaving those who survive to bend to their new Masters and rulers who take control of the land and Government and Leaders and former authorities. Cities on fire all over the land. The survivors have no choice or freedoms any longer, for their sins and wickedness has brought on this evil and they are punished by those worse than themselves. Their only hope is now repentance and calling out to God for grace and mercy and forgiveness and living with the hope of a new home in heaven. Finally many will realize this earth is not their home and they become willing to lay down their lives for Jesus. But the majority will not repent and ignore the judgments because they love their sin and hate the creator who causes a strong delusion to fall on them because they did not love the truth.
Sadly, this doesn’t have to happen, but America has crossed the line and her sins are as Sodom and Gomorrah and she refuses to repent. The next few months and years will be horrific as Gods hand of protection has lifted. The Fall of 2015 starts the slide with a boom and the fall of 2016 becomes a final blow that will end this nations economy as we have know it. Terrible times are coming and there will be no recovery. The only safe place is in the will of God and faith in Jesus. I pray you know Him….

Are You Ready for The Coming King ?  

Are You Ready for the Coming King?

” Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and let the unrighteousness man his thoughts; and let him RETURN TO THE LORD, and He will have compassion on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly PARDON. For My thoughts are not your thoughts; neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. ” (Isaiah 55:6-9)

Unfortunately, for millions, the Lord won’t be found as this planet winds down to the end of the age and Jesus Christ returns to rule and reign for a thousand years. Why not? Because they simply are not looking and seeking Him. The Lord is near ! “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision ! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”(Joel 3:14) The human race is born in sin and most seek their own pleasure instead of seeking God first. Worries of this life take center stage in most minds with little thought given to their own spiritual awakening, or soul searching or contact with the Creator of the universe and much less where they will spend eternity, for the soul of man never dies. Everyone will spend it somewhere; either in glorious peace and wonderment in heaven with the Father and His Son or in the deep recesses of hell with Satan and his angels in the lake of fire reserved for the wicked. There will be weeping and pain and gnashing of teeth and it will never end.

The love of money, power and pleasures drive humans to do the most despicable and barbaric acts that the majority of people can not even imagine in their wildest dreams. As the bible so rightly quotes; ” For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”(Ephesians 6:12) Struggles transliteration in the Greek is “Pale” which means “Wrestling” and is from the root word “Pallo” which means “to vibrate.” It’s the match of the ages. Notice it is not a war. The war has already been won by Jesus who made an open defeat of Satan when He arose from the dead for the whole universe to see. For us, it’s a struggle, a wrestling match to claim what is already ours by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony by which we overcome the bible says. Team Jesus is always the victors!

World headlines denote the tremendous evil circling the globe right now. And for anyone who has the slightest idea of all the foretold prophesies; you know all things are being fulfilled right before your eyes and the soon return of Jesus as King is just barely over the horizon and right around the corner. We are not talking decades now, we are literally talking within a very short few years if not sooner. Even only five short years ago; who would have ever guessed that the words of Jesus spoken in the gospels and the warnings of Revelation would appear right on the scene, right in front of our eyes in our lifetime? They will kill you and think they are offering their God a service. The Christian beheadings and murders and persecutions have begun all around the world.

Even the majority of non-believers have heard of the Antichrist and the battle of armageddon and heard of the coming wars. They have also heard of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. No one is without excuse, no one. ” For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”(Romans 1:20)” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who SUPPRESS THE TRUTH in unrighteousness, for God has made it EVIDENT WITHIN THEM.” (Romans 1:18-19) now that’s powerful ! Everyone knows deep inside and will have no excuses why they didn’t seek God, why they didn’t learn the truth, why they didn’t study the bible, why they didn’t pray and why they didn’t believe. And the ones who flatly refused to repent when they knew the truth, woe to them.

This period of grace is almost at the close. Soon every nation, tongue and tribe will have heard the gospel as a witness and then the end will come. Jesus said “As in the days of Noah” is what it will be like, immorality and violence will cover the earth and people will still be marrying and buying and selling goods. When they least expect it, Boom, the last trumpet will sound and Jesus will burst through the Eastern Sky to gather His elect from the four corners of the earth! Are you ready? Really ready? I would hate to be in your shoes if your not. There is no second chances. This life is all you have, the price for your sins has already been paid, repent today and turn from your wicked ways and call on the name of Jesus to forgive you and save you. Don’t be like the rest of the world who are so busy with the cares of life and making more money that all of this takes you totally unaware. God loves  you, will you love Him back???

God Can’t Anoint Your Avatar

God Can’t Anoint Your Avatar

As the Bible says knowledge will be greatly increased in the last days and men will run too and fro across the earth. We are living in those days! Social media has exploded around the world with up to the moment Tweets, hourly Facebook updates, and never ending Fantasy Worlds of online virtual worlds where anyone can pick an Avatar and be totally unidentifiable, incognito and secretly slip into worlds and virtual relationships never before imagined by the public at large. Games like Second Life, IMVU, ourWorld, Moove online, WeeWorld and Migo Land are but a few of places teens and adults go to try to escape the reality of this down fallen world but in most cases fall into worlds where sin and perversion are so rampant, they wind up getting bound up by emotional evil at it best with an addicting pull on their souls like some drug that is hard to break.

Unfortunately, many Christians have also taken this tumble into the Virtual Worlds by justifying it as “not real” or “just fantasy”, but are so bound up in the games of sin, they cannot break away from the thrill of it all without anybody knowing or seeing who they really are in real life. The Avatar becomes their true alternative version of themselves, free to do anything they would never do in real life, but think that there are no consequences to sinning heavily in their online virtual worlds. The problem is all sin is just that, “sin,” and the consequences of sin is always death in some form. It could be death in relationships in real life, or leading to death of your soul for eternity. At one point long ago I was involved in virtual worlds and so I know from experience, they are very sinful, addicting and can cause serious issues in a persons real life. Repenting and turning away from this is the only way to escape the bound up way of this lifestyle of online virtual worlds. Asking God for forgiveness and stop sinning is the only way to bring back the peace and blessings in your life.

God can’t bless what you pretend to be. He can’t minister to your mask. God can’t save your selfie! You may have the popularity, you may have the possessions in life, but are your losing yourself? You may have secret pleasures, but are your losing your soul? If your losing yourself; what good is it? God can only bless who you really are, not who you pretend to be. God cannot anoint your Avatar! He knows everything about you. He even knows all your thoughts and sins of your heart. The great news is He is also a loving and forgiving God and His mercies are new every morning. He will forgive you, He will help you overcome, He will never forsake you because He loves you. This Easter season which celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus, make a covenant with God that you will live for Him and turn from your sinful ways and follow His word. God can’t bless or forgive your Avatar, but He can bless and forgive you. Give Him the real “you” from your heart and the times of refreshing will return to your soul. It’s time to stop playing at life as perilous times are beginning and everyone must make a stand for Jesus in this real life God gave us. Get real with God and others and live here, not there….,

All Cowards Go To Hell ?

All Cowards Go To Hell

The very first group named in Revelation 21:8 whose part will be in the lake of fire and brimstone, which is the second death are the COWARDLY. First on the list before the unbelieving, the abominable, the murderers, the immoral, the sorcerers, the idolaters and the liars! Now all these groups will have a part in the lake of fire, for God is Holy and just and shows No Partiality to anyone. It is no joke that we all reap what we have sown, but there is a way out before you die. More on that in a minute.

Why do you suppose the Cowards are the first ones mentioned? Think about it; of all the sin and wickedness in humans that lead to the second death and eternal damnation in the lake of fire, none is more detested and hated by God than Cowards. How can this be? Your thoughts are probably churning right now and your reasoning power is kicking in and you have some pretty good ideas as to why.

Being an ex-marine and facing death day after day in Vietnam Nam; all of us were afraid and scared at times believe you me, but I never saw cowards. I’m sure there must have been some, but I never personality met any in the war zone. What I did see and hear is soldiers crying out to God for mercy and forgiveness as they were dying. I heard others calling out for their mothers and a few others who went to the other side cussing and screaming as they were the most afraid and for good reason.

Saint Luke wrote in chapter twelve, verse five what Jesus said about it. ” I say to you my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more they can do. But I warn you who to fear: Fear the one who after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes I tell you, fear Him.” The martyred Christians being killed and beheaded all around the world and especially in the Middle East are perfect examples to us to be faithful to the end and receive a crown of life and rule and reign with Christ. You think they weren’t afraid and scared? They were, but their faith in Jesus was stronger than their weakness and their love for God is and was stronger than their love of their own lives. Now they abide with Him forever.

You don’t have to be marched off to be beheaded to renounce your faith in Jesus and confess Allah to be a coward. All you have to do is NOT confess Jesus before men and women in this life, in your world, among your family and friends and co-workers and acquaintances and today that includes social media because your afraid of men. Being a coward isn’t not going to church, but being afraid of what someone will say about or to you for standing up for righteousness. Being afraid of any kind of verbal persecution for your belief that Jesus is Lord is being a Coward. Going along with society is being a coward. Because some laws of the land are changed due to society breaking down and loving immorality, you don’t have to agree with and especially condone it. You don’t have to go around waving a flag calling everyone sinners, but you do have to speak up for the gospel truths any time you are confronted. And know enough to state your case as to why you believe the way you do.

If your church becomes apostate and accepts social pressures to conform and condone biblical immorality, get out and find a group of believers who believe God. Staying means your become a part of their sin, otherwise your a coward. If you call yourself a Christian and condone the killing of innocent babies in the womb because of social pressures, then your a coward. ” I will not revoke it’s punishment, Because they ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead…”(Amos 1:13) abortion is sin and murder. If you go along with it because of social pressures than you are a coward. If you call yourself a Christian and vote for leaders and platforms and parties that condone any and all of the above than you are a coward and a liar, for your religion is worthless. Hopefully none of you are in that category, and if you are, than repent and God will forgive you.

Today in the year of 2015, there will be a great shaking by God to see who is really on the Lord’s side. The shaking of economies, the shaking of governments, the shaking of lands, the shaking of societies, the shaking of churches and religion and the shaking of believers and non-believers alike. Who has courage and who will stand? “To hate evil is to fear God “says proverbs 8:13. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”(Joshua 1:5-9) the Bible also says that the fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.”(Proverbs 29:25)

If you have been a coward, then repent, God loves you and will forgive you. If you have sinned, then repent, God loves you and will forgive you. If you have aborted your child, then repent, God will forgive you. And if you have committed any other sins, no matter how horrible they are repent, God will forgive you. As long as we have breath, we have the opportunity to repent and be forgiven. Remember you must also forgive others as the Lord has forgiven you. If your not born again, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who died and is alive forevermore. Believe He died for you and His blood washes away all sins, past present and future as you repent and ask forgiveness. Get baptized as the Lord commanded too. God loves you so much go to Him now. Be strong, take courage and pray God grant you the heart of a Lion and you will never be a coward again……

The Breach of Protection

It seems as if God has lifted His mighty hand of protection off this land of America. It feels demonic and unnerving to everyone. Who would have ever dreamed just going to grade school or high school or the movies or to work or even the mall could cost you your life in America? We have always had crime, especially in the big cities, but this is different; its murder planned out by demonically possessed young men. Men who are misfits and loners, full of hate, with no regard for human life, including the lives of young children or women. This is a planned attack of evil, of the devil and his demons to try to destroy our very faith in God and ruin the security of living in the land that has always been called the home of the brave and the land of the free. This causes great fear and nervousness and mental anguish among all our citizens from coast to coast and border to border.

But in these deep tragedies, there is always hope and faith that those who know their God will stand firm in their belief that God is not only our salvation through Jesus Christ, but is also our protector and our hope no matter what we see going on in the world around us. For us to remember that to be absent from our bodies is to be present with the Lord in heaven must be so ingrained in our spirit that regardless if we live or die we are the Lords. I guarantee you hosts of angels were there that day with those children and the second they lost their lives, those angels took them by the hand and brought them directly to the face of Almighty God. Though they disappeared in this life, they are so happy now in heaven, where God wipes away all their tears and His love and presence fills their hearts with monumental joy.

The pain for those parents, and really all of us who mourn their loss, will eventually subside and life will again go on, though they will always be missed and loved and cherished by all. I am not one who does not know their hurt and pain because I lost my first born son at the age of 16 and that crushing blow was so deeply felt in my heart that I was not the same for a couple of years. Through that pain I came to realize that God is still God. He is the same God of night that He is of the day. He is the same God of the bad times as He is in the good times. He loves us so and through it all I learned to trust in Jesus and learned to trust in God. Now I assure you there are those who blame God for all the suffering and tragedies in this life, but that is such a lie direct from the pit of hell itself and from Satan. God is a God of love and gives every man and woman life and a life of choice to either live for Him or live for themselves. Free will is something God will never override in any human being. It’s what separates us from the animal kingdom and what defines us as humans, free choice.

The enemy of our soul’s entire goal is to steal kill and destroy us. He hates us and continues on his rampage of destroying lives in any way possible. Destroying our families, our health, our marriages our jobs our finances through open doors that we give him as humans for the most part because of our sins, because of our unbelief, because of our lack of a personal relationship with our God that He has made available to anyone who calls upon His name. Even the natural disasters are a product of Satan’s agenda to kill and destroy. He is the prince and power of the air the bible says, but his days are numbered. Jesus last words were “It is finished” He reconciled man back to God through His death and resurrection. He took the keys of the kingdom from Satan of death, hell and the grave, and then He gives them to us IF we will surrender our hearts and lives to Him. Jesus said in this life you will have troubles, but take heed “I have overcome the world.” Now if He overcame the world, then all those who’s trust is in Him falls under His protection, not only in this life, but in eternity, in the life to come; forever and ever.

To lose your life is actually to save it. If you lose your life in faith believing that Jesus IS the resurrection and the life, then you gain your life forever by being His disciple and doing your best to walk in righteousness. He is our righteousness if we will let Him. There is nothing in us that is good, but the bible says we become the righteousness IN Christ for all who believe; to the Jew first and also to the Greek (all non-Jews).

There is a wonderful short chapter in Psalms 91 that all of us need to read and re-read and confess out loud and believe with all our hearts. Here it is: “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a Shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, not the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place—the Most High, who is my refuge no evil will befall you, no plague come near your tent. For He will command His angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot. Because He holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer Him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy and show him my salvation.”

God promises when the enemy comes in like a flood, then He will raise up a standard against him. Where sin abounds, much more does grace abound. Finally God promises that nothing shall separate us from the love of Christ. Not tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness or danger or sword. “ For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. “ (Romans 8:38)
