Latest from Unsealed - The Cloud, The Stone, And The Serpant

Hello everyone... My apologies for not getting a new post up before the comments hit 200, I know that causes problems on some of your devices.  So very sorry about that, I have no idea what causes that issue.   I just noticed that Gary put up a new post on the signs that have been happening over Jerusalem so I figure that is a great topic to share, despite the fact most of you would have seen it regardless.  He gives a great breakdown (excerpt and link are below) of many strange signs in Jerusalem recently, but can you even imagine praying on the Western Wall and then seeing a snake above your head??  What a wake-up call!  Praying for strength and perseverance for us all no matter how you feel at the moment.... As my kids sing, we are weak but HE IS STRONG!  So glad that we are wrapped in His hand (John 10:28) and covered by his wings (Psalm 91:4) all at the same time! Hoping we are all are able to snuggle in and rest while we watch and wait for the most exciting event in world history!

Here is an excerpt and a link to Gary's article:
As I've said several times lately, we're now living in a short intermission of time at the crossing of the dispensations/eons. The Revelation 12 Sign is passed. Israel's 70th birthday is passed. Israel's biblical identity is now law once again. And the deliverance of the Church into Heaven and the onset of the Day of the LORD are on the near horizon.

It is the worst possible time to harden your heart, believing that your Master delayeth His coming. Get right with the LORD and get aboard the Ark.

  1. Thanks so very much for re-priming this well, Praise Him, amen. On one hand there are some very alluring digs afoot atm so likely will not be stark long, on the other, esp in light of the Convergences being growingly revealed concerning 11/7, your work may be Legacy soon, Maranatha!

    On that note, wouldn't want any to miss a Wink found in a note to Colleen M's latest concerning her spelling her sign as Time to Exsit. Our Father Conceals, to His Glory, and Seekers He Choses See and share. Scramble the letters: Time to Exist. Wow, you can say THAT again, Maranatha!

  2. SHERRY PLEASE READ! I tried to post this on the other thread, but the 200 post thingy got me. :) This is my response to you about your dreams. I posted on your actual document too, but in case you do not read those comments, I wanted to post here too.


    Very Interesting! I want to share with you what I think your dream means, but prior to that I want to give you some background so you understand where I am coming from. For a few months now, I have had a strong sense that I need to be preparing food, water, and alternative forms of currency (i.e gold, silver, etc) so I have started “prepping” so to say. I have been struggling with myself to determine whether or not this sense to prep is coming from my own head or from a push from God; therefore, I have been asking God to show me. I have been going to sleep each night with anticipation that God will give me some dream or something with either confirmation or tell me I am crazy, but nothing. Multiple scriptures have coming to mind about the importance of preparation, but I have been asking him for something more.

    Then, last week, my precious sister-in-law who is both quite young in age and in faith called me about a dream she just had. Prior to her dream, she was not aware of my sense to prepare. To back up for just a minute, earlier this year, I had a viewing party for the movie, The Coming Convergence, in order to give a quick overview and of the coming signs of the rapture and tribulation to the believing members of my family in order to encourage them to help me to reach out to the unbelieving members of my family.

    Anyway, in her dream, she was at work and all of a sudden the room went dark and her cell phone went dead. She went outside and people were baffled at what was happening. People were walking everywhere because cars were not working. She stated she was very calm because she felt prepared for this event. People were panicking asking what was happening, but she stated she felt very calm because she knew what was happening. She began to try to tell people that this was it, Jesus will be coming back very soon, but no one was listening to her.

    She then stated that all of the sudden all the signs of Jesus’s returned started happening really fast. She stated it felt like they all happened in less than an hour. She continued to feel very calm and peaceful in the dream because she felt prepared. She stated that all of the Christian began walking in the same direction and then God’s voice came over on what she described as an intercom stating he was God and that he was showing people who he was. She then woke up.

    In my opinion her dream described an EMP, of which she has never even heard about, which seemed to happen right before Jesus comes back, but she felt calm because she knew what was happening and was prepared and knew Jesus was following shortly to take the Christians home.

    Your dreams spoke to me. I think they are referring to the United States for sure. The Eagle represents the US government. I think the coke bottle represents money or prosperity. I think it is showing that in order to take down the overseers of the United States, you have to hit them where it hurts, and that is in the pocketbook.

    I think using Strongs for the numbers was exactly right. I agree that God has a plan for the US and I think we have been weighed and found wanting.

    For the 2nd dream. It made me think of the need to store an alternative source of currency. Especially if the coke bottle represents prosperity and the possibility of it being removed.

    For the 3rd dream, it seems to me the missiles are some type of weapon that causes a blackout. The black smoke that was not smoke that spread out.

    I have no idea if my thoughts on your dreams are accurate, but this is what came to me when I read them. Thank you for sharing!!

    I am sorry for the long post and any grammatical errors! I wrote this on my phone!

    Thanks!

    1. I did see it and appreciate your thoughts very much. I posted a reply on G+, but so everyone here could be aware of our discussions, I've pasted it here as well. Blessings

      Aimee, you may be right. I have asked the Lord for several years now if we should do any extraordinary "prepping" other than a couple months as we normally have and I have gotten nothing. I will renew the request in prayer. I had no question when I saw the black smoke that wasn't black smoke pouring out of the ground it was the pit pouring out demonic activity. Again, I had the impression I was "watching", though not present. Sometimes that's how it works with a vision, as opposed to a dream where you are personally involved in the activity. I am staunch pre-trib, not simply because I don't want to be here, but I believe scripture is profoundly clear we must leave before the Tribulation can begin. Now, does that mean what I saw was a run-up to the Trib and not the actual trib? It's possible - here's why I question that. Scripture says it will be "as in the days of Noah, people eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage." When EMPs or bombs of any sort start hitting the US all bets are off for normal. The Holy Spirit within us is the Restrainer and the Trib brings a "different gospel". There can't be two different gospels preached at the same time. We would be teaching Grace Alone by Faith Alone, with the Witnesses and 144,000 cautioning people to Believe in Jesus and "Don't Take the Mark". Those are competing and can't be allowed simultaneously. Paul says, If I or another comes teaching any other gospel, let him be anathema - cursed. Much to think and pray about. Long never matters to me, these are important topics we discuss and I could not have done nearly so well on a phone. Blessings to you Abundantly, Sherry

    2. Sherry - really interesting dreams, and I hadn't realised you had posted them until Zorro had posted above.

      Zorro - Im a partial prepper...at the moment due to the fact that sanctions are back in place for Iran and oil may spike in the next 3-6 months. However, the bulk of the prepping (and by prepping, really just meaning getting my garden fully going, keeping some petrol on tap etc) largely due to me believing that Iran is looking to create chaos in the middle east as the next 'major' event and when that happens then we here in NZ will likely be the first to feel the pinch. Funny - while I am an intra-sealer, I frowned at Jarods (Unleashing) comment about the post-tribbers being those who are the scoffers etc in one of his videos. While Cathi and co covered this off in the last post, I must admit it annoyed me to to hear Jarod speaking so ignorantly on this. To believe in a pre/mid or post tribulation does not automatically exclude one either longing for a pre-tribulation (if one is mid/post trib) or being wise prepping for a mid/post trib (if one is pre-trib). God calls us to be faithfully watching for his return, but he also calls us to be faithful stewards of what he has given us.

      So I for sure won't be one who will be 'looking surprised' if we do go up before any 7 year tribulation/great tribulation/pre-3.5 years/70th week etc, as I believe with all my heart that 'looking/longing for His appearing' is the ultimate test of what God has called us to regarding his soon coming.

    3. Through and Through, I just had to laugh with the - 'looking surprised' if we do go up before any 7 year tribulation/great tribulation/pre-3.5 years/70th week etc - coz it just struck me funny. Seems the most surprised will be the believers who don't want to think about a rapture or in Jesus returning soon. Life goes on and that is a strong pull, I think.
      I was debating storing some things recently but didn't get far. A jar of peanut butter you leave on the shelf which I don't like but surly would eat. I still need a workable handheld can opener. I browsed the canned foods aisle in an effort to have things on hand, and felt overwhelmed at the whole idea. I couldn't see myself eating cold vegetables out of a can but I would if hungry. Course, that led me to seeing myself buying 10-20 cans of baked beans because that is the only vegetable I could see myself eating cold. I am having a belly laugh here. Not meaning to make fun of this subject but it just is hard to think about seriously. I guess I would center on somehow getting myself over to my sister's as they have a pantry, etc.

    4. Cathy - I am coeliac, so I will be stuck with my dehydrated potatoes unfortunately as my kids would have scoffed down the cold baked beans!! At least water is thinning I guess:/

    5. @Aimee not having followed your conversation and just popping in but regarding your point at dream #3 "black smoke which isn't smoke" did you already watch the trailer for the 2018 movie 'The Domestics' at the very first seconds? Watch it, this is probably what you mean. Black Chemtrails. (I mean, if it is not coming off the ground but from above)

    6. I was into some prepping mode last year for a short time but this feeling has vanished. If things would get hot like described in the Orwellian picture of today here (click!) we would be in a sandwich position anyway in Germany and crushed immediately. We have no great desaster zones naturally and geographically so Germans usually don't prep a lot like in other countries. I am COMPLETELY calm and at ease at the moment about anything out there. I have only recently noticed some lack of food supply in stores and discounters (which is unbelievably rare since decades!) and prices are already rising so I get back to my 'poor man's food cooking style' again as I still have to stretch the money until we get snatched up which I don't know the time (but yet God provides us with plenty of everything and we don't eat much not working hard anymore). Because of the summer drought, water levels are extremely down for inland navigation and ports and there are logistical problems for fuel and gas stations which could already have an impact on truck traffic. But again, Matthew 24:39 stands out to me even if there are some that may say "Jesus isn't talking to you here!" how laughable. People WON'T notice anything beforehand, period. If they would, means scripture cannot be correct (and it always is!). MARANATHA!

    7. Sherry and everyone else,

      I too believe in a pretribulation rapture. I agree with you regarding your thoughts on the scriptures stating it will be “as in the days of Noah” just before the rapture. My thoughts kind of go around in circles regarding this scripture as well.

      Jesus also mentions the birth pains-famines, earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars. This could refer to any country in the world. It would have to be something significant to cause extreme famine in the United States. If something happened to the United States it would affect the whole world, but eventually things would normalize.

      In my studies, I am hard pressed to find the US playing a significant role during the tribulation, which makes me think something happened to make it no longer a super power. Now, it could be the rapture that causes this. I really have no idea, all of this is pure speculation on my part.

      Regarding prepping, I just can’t understand this sense I have to prepare. It could be for just prior to the tribulation, it could be for those unbelieving members of my family or others during the tribulation (I am including tracks and bibles in my prep boxes), or I am just nuts! :)

      During your prayers, if you get a sense either way, will you post about it?

      Thank you!

      Aimee

    8. Oops I forgot to respond to a couple of you!!!

      Ryan,

      I once heard someone say they are a pantribulationist. Meaning, they hope for the pre and plan for the mid or post. It made me laugh! If someone believes in mid or post tribulation he/she simply has a differing of opinion than me, but that does not make them an unbeliever or scoffer!!

      Annabel- I have not seen that trailer. I will check it out!

    5. So true. Gotta have coffee. Instant is nasty tho. Was going to add that you need crackers or soda/water with peanut butter! Also the propane grill - I was thinking what would I use on it ... Coffee works! Tho, I never used one. I would have to ask my bro-in-law how to use one and walk me through it. That would be an opening in talking about end times and Jesus returning now wouldn't it. I think I could do it. I would be excited too I think like in a more natural way.

    8. Hmmm, Cathi...Sounds like you and your siblings might need to keep as close an eye as possible on your Mom's well-being and maybe your brother or brother-in-law could let the ol' boy know if anything goes amiss, he and his lady-friend will be your family's first consideration.
      When I was concerned about my pregnant daughter's welfare at the hands of her then abusive husband, I straight up told him to his face that if she went missing, I'd hire some goons to grab him and put him a box and bury him alive out in the hill country with a nice air pipe coming up and I'd drop scorpions and snakes down in there with him until I found out where she was. He believed it and left peacefully...went all the way up to Michigan and stayed there. I am a Christian, but I'm also a bear of a mom (and granny:-)

    9. Green beans, Ryan? I hope that's a type of coffee bean I'm not familiar with cuz I can't imagine the green beans I know about for making coffee.

    14. I don't know, Cathi, but hopefully longer than we'll have to worry about it. I drink a lot of coffee, but so far I've never run out. That's a scary thought while in this world.

    15. Little Susie Homemaker trick I learned about caffeine headache withdrawals, which were severe in my case. Drink PowerAde Zero sports drinks when you feel a headache coming on and it knocks out 90% of them. The ones it doesn't touch are the gravitational system ones from sun spot high activity or the worst of the weather pressure systems, but it does slow them down a bit. I don't know why it works, a doctor told me about it and it does work for me at least. Blessings - Sherry

    16. Sheila, I do like my cream in coffee. I had those little creamers once but ended up using them until they were gone, gone, gone. Just looked it up and they are called single servings, and Land o Lakes calls them mini moos. They will last on the shelf for 6 months. So, that's good to know.
      You are right ... Living Water!

    https://youtu.be/PmLTkt5k0Ko Saudi Arabia Family Feud/ MBS time is numbered.

    The Jamal Khashoggi death surely brought Saudi Arabia in the spotlight and has a huge damage effect in the monarchy. While MBS is portrayed as the "enemy /villain" in this situation , let us have a look what is the effect of this with the Bible Prophecy.

    MBS is known to forge a friendship with Israel and it is something even Netanhyahu is confident to discuss in public. MBS traveled to Israel incognito and deals were made in the years he is in power. Iran is angry, Turkey and the rest of the muslim nation is angry because of that.

    Jamal Khashoggi is Pro Muslim Brotherhood and his death might bring civil war in S.A. Now, with the return of the Prince in exile back to Saudi with alleged deal made and guaranteed by uK and US, and his return brings the possible the removal of MBS.

    Isnt it more possible that UK and US as the Lion and it is sons of Ezekiel 38 be ever more possible? While Sheba and Dedan (with MBS removed) be ever be true.

    Look, UK and US and Saudi is believed to be the Lions and its young cubs and Sheba and Dedan already in the verge of leaving support with Israel. Russia, Turkey, Iran in perfect time to be aligned.

    2. Ryan, I have looked at that angle (Young Lions) as well. I came to the conclusion, at the very best, the Young Lions offer only mild protestations when Israel is invaded. So, if that is the "remainder" of the US that makes some sense. I believe the US will be decimated by the Rapture and the near simultaneous judgement from God which will divide this land. East Coast either Tsunami or off into the Atlantic, West Coast Tsunami or drops off into the Pacific while the New Madrid splits the US right in two. That's the penalty for working for many, many years to divide the land of God in direct opposition to His scriptural warnings. But, what do I know! Blessings - Sherry

    3. I have read about the U.S. dividing in half ... It was worth the eclipse (2017?) with the one line of an "X" and then 7 years later the other line across the U.S. making an "X". I think both eclipses are just in the U.S.
      If so, wouldn't that indicate there is life still in the U.S. at least until the next eclipse?

    6. Sherry, I see it as you do as well re. America's fall (as indicated in my articles Be Expectant and The Fall of America (https://lynmelvin.blogspot.com/search?q=america%27s+fall).

      I believe we are definitely in the time “before the decree brings forth” (Zeph. 2:1-2) which foreshadows the Rapture:

      Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; Before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. - Zephaniah 2:1-2 KJV

    7. Cathi, I do believe there will be life remaining, but it will be a devastated country which is literally divided as it is already spiritually divided. I believe the MAGA movement is a temporary respite to give humans in the US one last chance to decide whether they will align themselves with God's Word re: Homosexuality, Abortion, Freedom of Speech and government that most closely (though certainly not perfectly) aligns with God's Word. He has removed the gray area so there is a stark choice and just as the Israelites were given a choice to stand with God or evil and then evil was destroyed (in that camp and for a period of time) we are being required by God to show whether we truly believe His Word regarding social and legal systems or if we align ourselves with the Globalist, One World, One false religion of the Swamp. This is not about "fixing" America, it is about a choice, a decision. God's Will or Man's Evil. Those who have chosen rightly to trust and Believe in Jesus Christ and everything His Word says will be removed while the remainder will go through horrors unimaginable. Make no mistake, this is a test and it is not devised by man. Blessings - Sherry

    8. Thanks Sherry for saying this. It is how it is, isn't it. I see this taking place in our society, in my own family members with the viewpoints they hold and so on.

      I just finished watching the James Smith video Lynn referenced. You always hear about the 7 hills of Rome ... Anyway, it was just a sad thing to have him (finally) spell it out at the end that the U.S. is Babylon the Great. I always want to resist believing this. He was concise and easy to follow versus those who go on into various other details and the difficulty, at times, in keeping up or staying motivated. I still say he could repeat himself less so than he does. Tho, he told those who feel his video is too lengthy to go elsewhere.
      Then, I watched a five-minute video of his on the pre-trib rapture. He starts with Acts 1 as Jesus is lifted up and a cloud then covers him from their sight as they are looking up into the skies, and the angels appear asking the men of Galilee why are they looking up into Heaven. Telling them that as Jesus was lifted up (into the skies) so shall He come again to Earth. James Smith saying this is reversed. It will be the clouds that come first in that Jesus has stood up, He descends, the dead in Christ rise first, and then those who are alive will meet them in air, in the clouds. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. Then, seven years later the heavens are opened. Revelation 19:11 and Jesus is on a white horse and is seen by all. As the Jewish people missed his two comings - as the lamb and as a lion; so, the church is making the same mistake. 1) His coming in the clouds for his church - the pre-trib rapture, and 2) His coming back to the earth, crowned with many crowns to rule and reign on it.

      So, I read on in Revelation of the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, who were following him on white horses Revelation 19:14. For me, I see our having been not only transformed and renewed at the rapture itself, but also the Bema Seat of Judgement having taken place in order to follow Jesus on white horses when He returns to earth (after the 7-year tribulation) to rule and reign during the Millennium period. Because, this ruling and reigning won't be the same for every believer. Thus, these decisions (rewards) will have already been given out and ready to be enacted upon.

    9. I would add one other line of thought you might ponder. First, I am a Literalist unless scripture gives clear indications something is to be interpreted symbolically. Based on that foundation, I believe the original Babylon will be rebuilt and that's where the main place of destruction will be. There are a number of reasons but one which is most clear to see is those Jews who are in Babylon are told to leave and go to Jerusalem to tell the Jews what has happened to Babylon to give them hope. Also, Antichrist has messengers "sent on foot" to tell him what has occurred. That really doesn't fit if it's not in the Middle East. That being said, I believe the reason we have so much controversy about what "Babylon" is and who will be destroyed is those cities which are most often mentioned are NY City, the US as a whole, Rome, London, Mecca, Riyadh, etc. are all "daughters" of Babylon. If you look at the "offspring", who will exist no longer, of Babylon it doesn't mean only human beings, but her spiritual offspring for she is the "Mother" of false belief systems both political and religious and they will be destroyed by Abba. Yahweh has raised His Consecrated Ones to destroy Babylon . . . and all her offspring or daughters throughout the world. Armageddon is the trap He's called them to and while their armies are in the ME to fight Antichrist battle to destroy the Israelites their own lands are left undefended. The Consecrated Ones are the Gentile Believers (the Trib Saints) but He also calls His Mighty Warriors - so the angels may also participate in the destruction. They are all charam - devoted to destruction. Jeremiah has the greatest detail. Blessings - Sherry

  5. As I have already given my take on any of these "Israel news" concerning a prayer against the wall of a Roman fortress (which it is in fact but no part of some Jewish temple) I will not repeat myself here on that. All I can see from a "snake on the wall" is in fact Amos 5:18-20 which only indicates biblical judgement, not some reasoning from Jewish Kaballah mysticism.

    But this is what I found interesting by scanning zerohedge again: Reminds me of the origin of the "Nikki" Nimrata Haley Sikh immigrant family... Look here! ## https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-11-01/indias-social-mood-tallest-statue-world ## and compare this to ## https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/india-visit-aimed-at-solidifying-partnership-nikki-haley/article24271676.ece ## and what it says...

    And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that THE WAY OF THE KINGS OF THE EAST MIGHT BE PREPARED. (Revelation 16:12)

    Didn't know about that yet. Do you? MARANATHA!

I urgently warn you not to put too much credibility into news, images, speeches, quotes and other reports from the media on TV or online as I have already stated before in the previous thread. Especially we as bible believing and born again Christians do NOT put our trust in anything the world reports to us in these hi-tech endtimes of "fake fake news" (double negation = true?) and we therefore have to doublecheck and scrutinize just everything from official media channels. If you weren't yet used to do so, please do it now! We are shortly leaving behind an earth doomed for a 100% fake news planet so what do you expect to find today? Just a reminder... MARANATHA!

  7. Hello everyone-

    While we 'wait,' some semi-prepping and some not (I've been on the teeter totter myself) but you know, I am near the coast (wiped out by tsunami), near DC (kaboom/wiped out) and I really believe we will really be rescued while things take place.

    I am holding on to the Last Great Day (SA), even now into 11/3.

    Pastor Sandy has a great follow-up Bible study [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWuG8LKZQnM] re: Tabernacles, 120yrs, the Last Great Day etc... I'll hold on to this for the moment. To my human mind, the Season of Joy seems appropriate, the 'gathering' for the wedding seems appropriate, the 3rd day weddings throughout the Bible, the birth story from Luke seems appropriate for the gathering of His bride by His heavenly hosts (angels, or those orbs of fire in the firmament above us).

    With the connection of the findings of Many Fishes' and ClearlyWrittendotNet showing us 10/31-11/1-11/2-11/3....

    With Ken Peters' prophetic reading from 2015 re: Nov of 2018...

    With all the geopolitical/war things just ramping up...

    It's gotta be close...hold on.

  9. Just a quick thought:
    For years I sat in silence while teachers taught. More recently, we’ve been involved with fellowships where participants participate. I always come away appreciating that folks are ‘engaged,’ recognizing that the ability to share thoughts gets the adrenaline pumping and chases away the sleepys. (This chat group is a premier example of that.) Then one day, in a moment, I understood—what is a ‘bride’ if not ‘engaged!’

  10. THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION

    2 Corinthians 5:18-20
    “But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ, and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation; namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses, and having committed to us the word of reconciliation. We are therefore ambassadors on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”

    Our God and Father has given every believer the ministry of reconciliation where we are called to tell others about the good news of Jesus Christ. And the good news is simply this... That God reconciled the world to Himself in Christ. No longer is our Father counting men's sins against them, but through the finished work of His Son, every person now has direct access to the living God in Christ.

    It was the Father that sent the Son into the world. It was the Father's heart to see mankind restored to their original destiny as His sons and daughters. It was the Son who gladly obeyed His Father and offered up His life as a sacrifice to destroy all that separated us from coming home.

    My prayer today is that we would know what our true calling is as ministers of reconciliation. We are calling the lost home to the love of their Heavenly Father in Christ. We are inviting them to come to receive God's free gift of redemption found in the Person of Jesus Christ. As His ambassadors, may each one of us carry a deep sense of the heart of our Father towards a broken, lost world.

    May we reflect His love and desire for reconciliation wherever we go. If our Heavenly Father is no longer counting our sins, may we be free from self-judgment and from judgment of others. May we simply have the grace to express this good news to everyone we meet as we are God's image bearers in this dark world.

    Matthew 28:18-20
    “Jesus came to them and spoke to them, saying, ’All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you. Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.”

  11. I saw this article @drudgereport.com this morning titled "End of GOD? Claims humans will worship AI Messiah". It came in real handy as a witnessing tool today in conjunction with Rev.13:14-18. KJV
    Excerpt: "Humanity no longer needs God but may with the help of artificial intelligence develop a new form of collective consciousness that fulfills the role of religion."

    I think it made an impact on where we are in time when I asked them how long they think the creation of this "Image" will take under the current progression of AI technology. So many people raised in Church don't even know these Scriptures exist, so they have no idea what is really happening in this world. They look like a deer caught in the headlights when you show them this kind of stuff. Just praying for His Word to bear more fruit, Amen. Blessings and Maranatha!

    1. Sheila, I read the other day about the exponential growth of these A.I.s. Scary. Barry Scarborough had a video today on not taking the mark of the beast. Haven't listened yet, so I don't know if he talks about the image of the beast as well.

      Delete
    2. Well, it isn't Barry talking but a British fellow and accents are hard at times for me to hear. I tried for a few minutes. Anyhow, his name is Joe Gooch. He isn't necessarily a believer, Barry commented in the comments. I am not sure about the RFID chip being the "mark of the beast". I know others do. I have always believed it needs to be a spiritual decision, somehow. Tho, comments on DNA alteration, having your DNA included on the chip, etc. is mind-boggling. I think the RFID chip is a precursor in some way in preparing people to accept the "mark" as in the move toward a cashless society.
      My bro-in-law's siblings have recently been discussing putting a chip in their Mom, which he opposes. I was surprised as there are those watch alarms and call buttons for help one can wear. Would doing so be an eternal destiny decision for her if she had it done today? Even if the RFID chip were used at a future time to tamper with DNA and the various theories discussed as the reason not to get this RFID chip; it must mean more than it does presently. I guess I can't see it as the "mark of the beast", today. For example, if you needed to get the chip through work to enter your place of employment, would a born-again believer get it? If so, what would this mean today? There has to be more to it (as I have read in the past) than doing so solely for health or convenience (using vending machines at one's work instead of coins) ...

    3. Cathi - you are correct. The bible notes taking on "HIS" mark. So it has to be a purposeful decision to do so knowing that you are committing yourself to the ACs mark.

      On a side-note, we played the following at my nana's funeral last week. A phenomenal song that has to be played with reeeeeallly loud speakers lol. Man - keeps bringing me to tears at how awesome Jesus is, and can you image a procession in heavens of billions all worshiping God at the top of their (spiritual) lungs with no issue of going deaf from the noise! agghhhhhh I can hardly wait!!!

    4. Cathi, imo that goes into "we really just don't know" territory. I was reading somewhere that these "innocent" chips being implanted now can be activated in extended ways further on down the line. God only knows, but I trust that if we belong to Him, He will be protecting us from such manipulation on this side of the Rapture. And it's my sense that taking the mark (whatever it consists of) has to be by a choice most people will gladly make for their own survival benefits. So putting a tracking device in an unwitting person seems unlikely to qualify. But even all these vaccinations I believe are an attempt to tamper with our DNA.The ingredients in those things are unbelievable. Any way you look at it, we truly need His protection and to be praying for that cover for our families daily without ceasing. While this flesh won't be going with us, these things can be problematic health-wise in the here and now.

      Even at funerals, when you honour the God whom the one who has gone has honoured all his/her life, then the Holy Spirit can only move powerfully, and it ended up being an awesome Church service (essentially). And thanks for the condolences. She will be missed as she was the only person I knew who could quote a proverb for every situation you would find yourself in, and Nan and Grandad (who died a few years back) were the most generous people I ever knew...people got into farms, businesses, churches were built through their giving, and their kids/grandkids and great grandkids are all benefiting financially, spiritually etc today as a result. We are praying we will leave the same legacy.

    11. @Cathi you asked about "taking the mark" TODAY during church age and what this might mean? Well, there is a lot of spirit of fear teached these days from the same bunch of people Paul warned the Thessalonians of in 2Thess2:2 already! It makes me sad indeed how great the confusion about all this is actually because the Thessalonians didn't have all the scriptures available yet which are so well known to us much later.

      If you go after the teaching of those who claim you can get lost by "taking the mark" TODAY then we might indeed ALL get lost as we are identifiable for anyone out there by internet ID, SSN, health service card, tax administration and what is more. If it was to ruin our DNA, I cannot tell how much nanotech I already breathed in through chemtrailing, spoiled myself in the food chain or through some clinical surgery, blood transfusion or any other health treatment.

      That's what makes DISCERNING the DISPENSATIONS so important. That's why Paul cursed ALL those who brought another gospel in the times of Galatians 1:8-9 than it will be preached during tribulation period in Revelation 14:6-12

      If there is any "mark of THE beast" available NOW then can anyone please show me who "THE" identifiable beast is I am not supposed to worship? No, this will be a divine order for TOMORROW when the true church will not anymore be dwelling on earth. BTW taking "the" mark will then be something else also for anyone left behind and being already chipped before whatsoever too. What is happening today is testing diverse technology and treatment but not what it will be about during Jacobs trouble. (There is also two other possibilities of partaking in the beast system mentioned in Revelation 13:17 so I do assume this to be important for the redemption of the 'sheep' in Matthew 25 again but yet no one in church has ever preached or teached about this.) I hope that helps? Blessings to you, MARANATHA!

    12. Annabel, your response on the RFID chip as used today was a relief because I had commented to my bro-in-law, I didn't see a problem with getting the chip for his Mom. Moreso, coz I didnt just say why I thought this. He knows I wouldn't volunteer my DNA by sending it in for analysis as advertised by 23andMe, for example.
      The RFID chip as the mark of the beast in relation to the dispensation we are in presently (the age of grace) and the dispensation during the Tribulation period, which is another gospel, dispels this view succinctly.
      Your comments on identifers in place, the 'digital footprint' if you will available today and the mark of the beast technology used during that period of time helps in understanding this difference.

      Delete
    13. Agreed, Sheila, Annabel and Cathi and Ryan what a special treat that was. Thank you for a few more minutes of true worship today. The Mark cannot come before there is a beast to worship. Yes, it is fearmongering and I was directed to a link earlier on Facebook where it was being used to prove a Post Trib Rapture because its already here, poorly used I might add. Certainly, it will have to be a conscious choice and decision to be valid. God does not abrogate Free Will and He certainly will not allow it to be done to make the most horrific decision a person could make - taking the Mark of the Beast, the Number of His Name or His Name. There are actually 3 possibilities there and its certainly not as simple as 666 - that's a riddle. Blessings - Sherry

    14. can I play the 'ol hairy legs' advocate and make a few comments re the 'preaching a different gospel':
      - firstly, does only a pretrib position fit the 'different gospel' scenario, or would a mid-trib/intra-seal (pre-great tribulation) perspective also fit neatly into this category? Consider that the mark of the beast comes within/before the 42 months of his permitted reign (3.5 years), which would align with either the final/next 3.5 years of (great) tribulation (if you hold Sherry's perspective that the first 5 or so seals have already been opened) or within the final 3.5 years of the 7 year trib/great trib events (if you hold to my intra-seal rapture belief). Why this period - as this is when the 'holy people will be delivered into his hands for time, times and half a time' (Daniel 7:25). If the final 3.5 years of great tribulation is when AC is given full authority, then having the rapture take place immediately preceding this and when the mark of the beast is given at the same time would fulfil the 'two gospel' scenario.
      - Post-tribbers would argue that a believer going through the great tribulation would not be able to take the mark of the beast due to them, like the 144 thousand, being already sealed by the Holy Spirit. They would point to Noah in this regard in that it was the Lord who closed (sealed??) the door of the Ark, and that Noah and his family could not have escaped from the Ark until the waters had fully receded. This is used by Post-Ts to 'demonstrate' that believers in the end times would be fully sealed from being drawn to or being able to take the mark of the Beast. i.e. they were sealed with the 'grace' gospel, and would not be able to take on the 'end times gospel' of being able to take on the beasts mark.

    15. Dear Ryan, the 'different gospel' topic is not the (only) hammer on the nail here but the change of dispensations and pre-trib proof can also be reasoned from the great deception coming in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 directly after departure so it must be clear from here that the church will (and can)not be present, regardless which timespan. For every nail a different hammer but it is all scripture... LOL! Blessings to you :-)

    16. Interesting read, Through and Through. I haven't given any much thought to this because well I am pre-trib and it is a difficult subject. I like Annabel's reply. With Jacobs Trouble seen as seven years; I see the wrath of God in its totality during this period of time whether it is Jesus' judgements, Satan's wrath or God's wrath because God is in control of it all ultimately. As has been pointed out by some, these first few seals, if they are now open, are not judgements taking place. So, I think still the pre-tribulation view holds. Also, it wouldn't be the Blessed Hope as Jan Markell has said, but the 'Blasted Hope'. The thought of being beaten up and abused as a bride who is then presented to her groom seems incongruent as to the rapture taking place where Jesus has descended from Heaven to come and get us. I think we cannot be a part or as like the 144,000 sealed becausebthese are a special group of people who will witness to this 'other gospel' and not the free gift of salvation during this age of grace, the gospel presented to us by the Apostle Paul, the new creation (both Jews and Gentiles). The body of Christ. Our witness now is the Holy Spirit and His Work, the Word of God. Then, external witnesses are taking place in the world to counteract the signs and wonders that will be taking place to deceive and cause the world to believe in the Antichrist and ultimately to take the mark of the beast. Instead of this internal witness that seals our faith from within us, the Holy Spirit himself. During the Great Tribulation, the remnant of the Jewish people will need to take action and flee to the mountains to be saved. Others will have to decide not to take the mark of the beast and will not be able to buy or sell. They will need to not love their own life. Today, it is the free gift of salvation. Not sure any of this has any semblance of value ... I look forward to others comments.

    17. Nice try Ryan - not buying it, but I love you anyway. The Two Gospels problem has nothing really to do with the Mark. Yes, the Mark comes at Mid-Trib, but the 144,000 and the Two Witnesses are sent out during the first Half of the Day of the Lord. They are preaching the Kingdom Gospel which is "follow the commandments", yes one is "Thou shalt have no other God's before me (the mark)", but there is more - "those who follow my commandments" are the ones Antichrist is going after so it is not only the mark which is prohibited. The Kingdom Gospel at its core is Jesus +. The Gospel of Grace we would be blabbering and screaming about is Jesus Alone. Not only would either the Church or the 144,000 and the Witnesses be preaching different gospels, but according to Paul one of us would be anathema and that's not possible. The Church would also gum up the works for the plan that is unfolding - whether you believe as I do that the Spirit Sealed Church by the power of Holy Spirit is the Restrainer or not, Antichrist cannot be "revealed" until the Restrainer is gone. That's us, but also we would be screaming at the top of our lungs - that guy - he's the Antichrist, look right here this is where it says it! They have to clear the decks (we go up) for the plan to unfold as its laid out. Sorry, you have to go early - it's just how it works. Blessings - Sherry

    18. Spoken in love as well...:)

      Sherry - John 14:21 'whoever has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me.' now or tribulation gospel?

      Re removal of the restrainer, the word for 'he shall be gone' actually means 'it shall come to pass', or 'shall be so', or 'it shall happen'. What shall happen, the restrainer will stop restraining. It doesn't note that he is 'gone'. And the he (gender neutral actually) is the Holy Spirit, not the Church. The Church does not restrain, the Holy Spirit does. We are vessels only carrying the restrainer. The Church was always referred to as 'she' (Ephesians 5:25), and not in a gender neutral and 'object/thing' sense as well.

      Re screaming at the top of our lungs about the AC...hey, we have been doing that to the world and Israel for the last 2000 years, and see how that is gone. That is the point behind the 'strong delusion'...it really is strong:)

      Re the 144000...when were they sealed? Note chapter 7 vs 1 'after this...'. After what? after vs 16 from chapter 6.

      Cathi - don't forget that it does not say in the Bible that Jacobs Trouble will be 7 years. Theologians have been arguing for a very long time between 3.5 years Great Tribulation vs 7 years full tribulation as being JT. Re the Blessed Hope, who gets to share in this? those being raptured while still alive, or those being being of the resurrection of the dead?. And Jans comment is really ignorant. Do those who are being tortured today only have 'blasted hope', because they are unfortunate enough to miss out on the rapture, or do they get to share in the resurrection, or more categorically speaking, the appearing of the Glory of Jesus??

      and finally, we have discussed this before but I have yet to hear anyone negate my point, this being 'we are not appointed unto wrath, but which wrath'? People tend to only want to read the first half of vs 9 from 1 Thessalonians 5, but ignore the remainder of the verse which provides the context for the first half of the verse. Here is the entire verse to make people a little more comfortable... 'For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ'. And another to help with the context of wrath John 3:36 - 'Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on them'. Anyway - despite all of that, you will be happy to know we are out of here before the wrath of the Lamb at the close of chapter 6:)

      Annabel - you have never seen me hold two hammers have you lol:)

      During Christ time on earth, how many dispensations were there? Or should I say, at which point did dispensation pass from the law unto grace? Upon the birth of Christ, the death of Christ, or did he distribute grace while he was fully working to the Mosaic law? Maybe we should ask the woman caught in the act of adultery which 'dispensation' she was forgiven under? Interesting to note that Christ' ministry on earth was 3.5 years as well don't you think:)

      Blessings all - need to go to sleep!

    19. Hi Ryan,
      I listened to an 8:48 video from 8-29-2017 with Jan M. and two others today. They discussed the Blessed Hope/Blasted Hope. I misunderstood her premise which was replacement theology and the church not seeing Israel as valid today. And, the church today not talking about the second coming and immanency in the hope that the rapture (harpazo) represents in living in these
      turbulent times.

    20. ah excellent thanks for the clarification and my 'ignorance' comment on Jan was therefore spoken in ignorance! My apologies.

    21. So, Ryan I read an article, "Seven Year Tribulation" by Jack Kelley/GracethruFaith. I found this interesting. Maybe you'll glean something here. Anyhow, he too wrote that the words seven-year tribulation are not in the Bible.
      John 16:33 refers to tribulation in general for the entire church age/individuals.
      Matthew 24:21 is a definite time, on the heels of the abomination desolation, Matthew 24:15.
      It isn't correct to name 'seven-year tribulation' with it meaning 'Daniel's 70th week' Jack says. As to the rapture it would be correct to say 'pre 70th week'.
      Does this matter? Yes.
      Because, people couldn't use John 16:33 to deny a pre-trib rapture because the context is tribulation in general in the world throughout the church age affecting individuals.
      An example, would be Acts 14:21-22 where Paul and Barnabas encouraged new converts during a time of persecution because of their profession of faith and in this being expected. Religious persecution, not the Great Tribulation.
      His point is that referring to Daniel's 70th week (Israel) as the Tribulation which is worldwide hides the fact that Israel and the church can't co-exist during this time.
      It is the most compelling reason for a pre-70th week rapture - it is theologically incompatible to have the dispensation of the law and the dispensation of grace existing in the same place at the same time. The last week of Daniel's 70th week will be about Israel with it's Old Covenant temple, animal sacrifice, keeping the commandments, all things Jewish.
      In Romans 11:25-27, there is a partial hardening until the full number of gentiles has come in. After this, Israel will be saved (the remnant). In Greek, hardening means blinded. God is not done with Israel therefore until He is done with the Gentiles and he won't be done with the Gentiles until the rapture.
      In Acts 15:13-18, James at the Jerusalem council saying God is first taking from the Gentiles a people for Himself (the church) and after that turning to Israel again. In Greek, "take from" is "to take in order to carry away from" (referencing the rapture). Jesus warned of this partial hardening in Luke 19:41-44.
      These two verses (Romans 11:25-27, Acts 15:13-18) put the missing week of Daniel 9:24-27 in its proper perspective. It is the remaining seven years of God's assignment for Israel to complete six tasks in prep for the coming Kingdom:
      70 sevens to finish transgression, put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and anoint the most holy (place).
      Seventy sevens means seventy weeks of years, or 490 years. In the 483rd year the clock stopped when they rejected Jesus as the Messiah and he was crucified. Seven years. As Paul and James said the clock doesn't start again until first the number of the Gentiles is completed - the church disappears.
      So, it is important for the church to understand Daniel's 70th week. The rapture can't happen at any part of Daniel's 70th week.

    22. awesome Cathi, that sounds - sound, and hard to argue with!?!!!! humm...

      Delete
    23. Thanks for this Cathi. I will address a few points raised by Jack.

      Absolutely correct to note pre-trib vs pre-70th week. Tribulation is taking place as we speak. So perhaps the right terminology across all rapture perspectives should be:
      - Pre-70th week
      - Pre-great tribulation (pre-wrath)
      - Intra-seal
      - Post great tribulation

      The whole dispensation of grace vs law is a really interesting one. We know that on the death of Christ, the law was also crucified and we can beyond a doubt stipulate that the Mosaic law etc was both fulfilled and nullified for all believers.

      But the time of Christ there was clear cross-over off the dispensations of grace and the law. I noted about about the woman caught in the act of adultery. She – by the law – should have been stoned to death? She wasn't however, as grace overcame the expectations of the law (as the one who was above the law was present on earth). Yet in the same breath, Jesus fulfilled the law in its entirety! They still went up for the feasts, still (largely) kept the requirements of the mosaic law. Christ healed a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years, yet didn't have to be made unclean according to the mosaic law. Yet this was all before he was crucified. I would argue that Christ during his 3.5 years of ministry demonstrated adherence to the mosaic law and the law of Grace, with the law of grace superceding the mosaic law. Two dispensations or a different one altogether that will be replicated in the final 3.5 years of great tribulation perhaps?? Possibly not however. The biggest flaw is this. Where does it say that two dispensations working alongside each other are theologically unsound, and what is that to do with an intra-seal rapture, where the rapture occurs prior to the call for the mark of the beast (covenants vs dispensations etc). Jack has assumed the great tribulation has to be 7 years, whereas the bible (Matthew 24:21) clearly notes that the time of the great tribulation will be after the abomination of desolation which is the middle of the 70th week.. Daniel 7 notes the time of the oppression by the AC, and Daniel 9:27 notes this as well.

      Regarding the fullness of the gentiles and hardening of Israels hearts. Again this is why the intra-seal belief is so appropriate for these scriptures. The fullness of the gentiles finishes with the rapture intra-seal at the time of the abomination of desolation (or supposedly thereabouts), after which the affliction on the Jews will cause them to ‘cry out in their affliction’ Hosea 5:15.

      Also don't forget that the period in which Israel sets up the temple and associated sacrifices, keeps commandments etc is not the ‘dispensation’ per se as the temple and sacrifices at the time will be considered an abomination in the eyes of God.

      This is also why I struggle to see why people don't see Revelation 12 plainly. Israel goes into labour. The Child is then born. God then makes it clear that Israel flees where she is looked after for 3.5 years (Rev 12 vs 6 and vs 14). So if the child goes up, followed by 3.5 years of God caring for Israel., where is the pre-70th week rapture being established? This is why many people believe its only 3.5 years of Jacobs Trouble, as this is the time when Satan is purposely committed to destroying Israel…post birth. When does she flee to the desert? Matthew 24:15 – at the time of the abomination of desolation…the start of the Great Tribulation. Anyway – my writing is more convoluted than my thoughts are sorry.

    25. i think Gavin Finley from Endtimepilgrim.com concluded that when the 483yrs [69 weeks] of Daniels 70th wk prophecy came to its end, that Jesus was getting baptized in the Jordan river by John boy....go figure! ....them presuppositions!?

      Delete
    26. Well, Through & Through ... I appreciate all you said. I haven't hopped over yet to Unsealed to see if I can find this pre-70th week (7 years) addressed.
      I understand Jack Kelley is saying that the 70th week would begin when the rapture happens. I don't believe anything must happen first for the rapture to happen, so this works for me. Then, the AC is revealed. At the beginning, he comes in peace. He resolves the world's problems. He confirms this covenant spoken of in the Bible.

    27. just getting back from G.Finley's endtimepilgrim site and he is "NOT" saying [please forgive me-altho i'm pretty sure he use to say it] that Jesus baptism coincided w/ end of 69th week of yrs. after all? Perhaps he changed his mind or perhaps i misunderstood??? regardless his study on the subject is commendable. i also stumbled on a post via google search that Gary at unsealed did where Gavins name comes up posted on 2/20/2017,...pretty cool. Finleys site is rather Amazing in general !

    28. Tony - Sir Robert Anderson did a comprehensive piece of writing where he was able to demonstrate to the day that the end of the 69th week was (to the day) the day when Jesus came riding on a donkey into Jerusalem presenting himself as king. Quite remarkable really.

      Cathi - I also appreciate the new insights and ability to discuss these things. Scripture is complex at times (end-times scripture is complex ALL the time). I did enjoy the background information that Jack presented for when the concept of the wording of 'pre-trib' happened and find it remarkable how we hold onto scripture until we discover that its not scripture at all.

      Bless you guys. p.s. it takes a long time to write replies...need to figure out how to use YT video recording so I can reply with some video musings...give everyone an opportunity to giggle at our strange NZ accents (and mine is particularly strange apparently:))

    29. Ha! I was at a 2nd hand shop today for women (clothes etc, home decorations) and a woman was quite loud on her phone with a Bostonian accent I think. It was well jarring. A woman and her had a few words. I was amazed at the sense of offense by this mid-aged eell-presented woman when she was asked to be a bit quieter through a motion of ones second finger to the lips. I guess the embarrassment of it causes you to either be offended or a bit chagined.

  13. Promise #308:
    I know everything about you and am mindful of all your ways.


    Psalm 139:1-3
    “Yahweh, you have searched me, and you know me.
    You know my sitting down and my rising up. You perceive my thoughts from afar.
    You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.”


    Have you ever walked into a room full of people yet felt completely alone? I believe that we can be surrounded by many people in our day to day lives yet still carry a sense of loneliness in the depths of our soul. The reason we feel this way is because we are all looking for a deeper, more profound interaction with people than just surface conversation. We want to truly know people and have them know us.

    A professional counselor can get to 'know' a lot of people in their practice, yet still not be known by anyone themselves. I believe the cry of the human heart is that someone would know us through and through yet still accept us the way we are. In today's promise from Psalm 139:1-3, King David makes the declaration that God knows everything about him and is familiar with all his ways.

    The same holds true for you. God knows everything about you. He has even numbered each hair on your head. He understands what makes you tick and as a loving father is filled with compassion towards his children... so His heart is moved with compassion toward you! (Psalm 103:13-14) You are never alone because God is with you. He is close to you and understands you more than you understand yourself.

    May this revelation go deep into our hearts today so that we will never, ever feel alone again. He knows everything about us and yet He still loves us with all His heart!

    2. Nora, that you posted this today is a sweet confirmation to a conversation I was having with the Lord while out walking earlier. I was thinking on and praying about the sadness in so many for the lack of knowing this very thing. Some people look around trying to pinpoint something or someone else to blame for the sense of emptiness in their lives when the Answer to fullness is always right there before them. My sadness comes when no matter how hard I try to point them toward Christ as all the Answer they need, they just can't seem to grasp it. This is a wonderful Psalm to pray for those my heart aches for--that the Holy Spirit will work to being them to an acknowledgement of Our Lord's knowledge of their every need and how best to meet it. TY you and Blessings, SIster:-)

    3. Hey All - Maybe this is the wrong format for a prayer request, but I can't think of group of believers that I'd trust to follow through more than you guys!

      My 25-yr old daughter, Torrey, is having a procedure done to correct (hopefully) an electrical problem with her heart. It is scheduled for tomorrow (Monday afternoon) here in Arizona. (She too is a believer as well as the electro-cardiologist who is performing the work. He is very well respected in his field and is a great man of faith! We love and trust him. Of course, we know that the Great Healer, our Creator, is in control. But, the human side of us makes us all a bit on edge, especially my daughter, who also has real anxiety issues along with the problematic heart...not a good combination!

      Can you please lift her up in prayer? And if you have any favorite verses of comfort and encouragement, now would be a great time to share them and we'd REALLY appreciate the support! I'll print them all out so Torrey can read them and take them with her to the hospital.

      Blessings! and thank you!

    4. Prayer just went up via Arizona for Torrey.

      I just had my last shave, used the last of the razor, will use the last of the 1/2 and 1/2 tomorrow morning....going to a wedding soon and need not get anymore supplies here on Earth.

      It seems like we are now in extra double overtime OR for you soccer people like me, when the center ref just keeps the play going although all the other clocks have reached 0:00 some time ago.

      There are a few individuals I need to circle back with pronto. I talked about 5G and AI to a young man today and he said I was the second one to do so, but I need to circle back and introduce him to the Savior. I am not sure what YTC it was, but it was a stern message from our Lord firmly stating we should not be sitting and watching but busy introducing Him to everyone we can. I am writing this for myself, as I cannot just hunker down and wait.... I am printing many copies of my Left Behind letter (all 10 pages) and probably going to send it to a few family members. Get ready for the scoffing and laughter, BUT....

    5. Just Learning, Torrey will definitely be in my prayers for complete success and a rapid recovery. As I am lifting her up to our Lord, even now, I am feeling a strong Presence of the Holy Spirit. The Lord be with you all tomorrow in the mightiest of His ways.

      Isaiah 41:10 KJV:
      "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

    8. Just Learning, I couldn't think of a verse but I thought about a card I sent to my doctor after a diagnosis and needing surgery. It was a card of a woman alone walking down this tunnel, (a black and white picture like a drawing) and the writing was something like not feeling alone (the doctor was compassionate and comforting) as I am sure she will feel through these prayers.
      As Nora above had in the words from 365 Promises, our God is a compassionate God, Psalm 103:13-14. He knows our frame, He knows what we are made of. He sees our fears. He understands. I have been watching the juncos in my backyard as they hop around on the ground, eating thistle that falls from a bird feeder. They are carefree as they seek food. Our Father is aware of them, and surly He is aware of your daughter and what she is going through and facing ahead.

    9. JL there is never a wrong format to as for prayer - especially this one. Father we lift Torrey up before your throne right now and seek your perfect healing of her heart and a stilling of her fears as she rests totally in your loving arms. Yeshua we know you said when two are in agreement asking anything it would be done by Your Father in Heaven and we know you are the reason for those stripes on your back paid the price for Torrey's healing and we claim it now on her behalf in Your Precious and Mighty Name. Amen - Thank you Jesus' for we know you have already sent Your healing angels to guard, guide and care for her tomorrow. We thank you and praise your Holy Name.

      JL and Torey, this is just some old earthbound experience I can share. My hubby had to have 4 heart caths to repair an electrical problem. They were completely successful and it was literally not a painful or difficult thing by any stretch of the imagination. Our wonderful doctors told Ed to just not be disturbed when they rolled him in the OR for the procedure. He said, those guys have more gear than any doctor I've ever seen. It will be wall to wall blinking lights and machines so just ignore it because he's done this so many times it's a walk in the park for him. He said, you know the heart is the most amazing organ - we have all these little electrical circuits to power it and tell it what to do and if one goes on the fritz we just burn it and stop it making those fritzes you're feeling. Once he burns it, the heart just remaps around that section and grows a whole new circuit. Redundancy in wiring - a masterful plan of Father God! Rest in His Arms - You are already healed, you're just going through the motions now! Blessings - Sherry

    17. UPDATE: Thank you all for your prayers! My daughter, Torrey, is home and doing well...just a little fatigued. Her heart rate was 210 as the doctor began the ablation to correct her electrical issues. But the long procedure went very well, and everything seems to be under control, so far.

      I printed all your responses/prayers and Torrey read them on our drive to the hospital Monday afternoon. It was such a blessing for her to hear prayers from people who don't even know her. She was thrilled to say the least! So, thank you Charlie in DC, Sheila B, Jimboni, Sherry Griffin, Annabel, Alla D, Ryan, Ozark, Cy and Cry, Nora, Zorrowbird, Cathi G and all the others that were able to pray for her!

      Do you know the Gaither song from a several years ago that goes like this? "God is good, yes He is. He's good all the time. God is good, you know He is. He's good all the time. You can search the whole world over, no greater friend you'll find. He's not good just once in awhile; He's good all the time." That is so true!

      As our pastor often reminds us, "Our problem is not that we don't love Jesus enough. It's that we don't realize just HOW MUCH He loves us."

  15. Jimboni, I'm guessing you are keeping up with Colleen and Pearl. I picked up on an interesting little "wink" between the Sisters. Today they have collaborated in some information that I can only call a huge encouragement on this immediate time frame. So here's what I caught:
    Yesterday, in Colleen's video "Dream of the Wicked One! Jesus is coming!" she speaks of the "imposter" coming and of an AUSTRALIAN TIGER SNAKE at the 9 min mark, it's prominent stripes indicating it's readiness to attack, then a hand stroked it like a dog or a CAT. (The AC cannot come to power until the Light is gone).

    Also yesterday, my attention was snagged by news reports re an extremely sly man-eating INDIAN TIGER finally shot and killed after being hunted down for attacking and killing 13 people. This tiger was identified by it's unique stripe pattern. But what I didn't know until tonight is that Pearl lives in INDIA. My feeling re this "coincidence" is that this collaboration between these two Sisters bears watching. Pearl is also led to Dan.5 re the Writing on the Wall. Be interested to know what your thinking is on their latest vids. (@L Lott is pretty revved up, too, on her URGENT!!! WATCH RIGHT NOW!!! message from today.) Blessings, Brother.

    3. Sheila B., Blessings. Seemed to have found myself in a bit of a pause, it seems, and not really yet dug in to even your broad reviews of the Lion Emerald. Maybe feeling a little overwhelmed, worn out by the World and hopeful that it ALL clarifies shortly, in any event? Been asking Our Lord to Point me where He Wants but not much popping of late.

      One thing that did jump out at me, though not sure if Him or me, and also along the lines of what you mention, Pearl and Colleen's latest Tango, was Pearl's recent mention, in her video concerning 711/117 'coincidences', of the word for Purple/ Reddish-Purple occurring ONY in Daniel and 3 times. I immediately recalled my initial dig on "Inkalamu " and recalled a similar find there (again below).

      H311: achar: after (3) Daniel 2:29; Daniel 2:45; Daniel 7:24
      Enough DANIEL for ya’?

      This felt to affirm my feelings that repetitions and echoes are esp important now as markers for where to LOOK. The TWIN you helped uncover between LION EMERALD and OPEN PIT, as an example. Kilauea/Hector, ofc. (800) twice spotted.

      As for this one, (3) hits on the color of Our Lord's Robe alongside (3) hits, prior, speaking of 'achar', that is, 'after', and that alongside Colleen's latest highlighting the rise of the AC 'AFTER' departure, sings to me here.

      LOL, that reminds me of one time when traveling thru Louisiana trying to find this small town based on some oral directions and we got lost (this was way before GPS or cell phones were a thing). Anyway, at my insistence and much to the hubby's dismay, we stopped at this little old 2 pump gas station in the middle of nowhere to ask for some directions. The proprietor squinted at us like he was sizing us up, spit some tobacco juice clear across the room and hit the can, then said matter-of-factly "You can't get there from here."
      Hubby was gloating, but I said, Oh yeah we can...even if we have to back up and start over, we'll get there." And get there we did...eventually:-D Maranatha, Brother!

  16. Latest from Dan Matson

    October 27 at 6:33 PM ·

    Starting with the Revelation 12 Sign it was seen if pi could divide the period to the day of the Rainbow—the last day of Noah. The last shall be first...the first shall be last. It is believed here that Heshvan 10, the first, is Day 1290 at the end of the Tribulation as Day 1260 would fall at Atonement...

    From earlier:

    There is one more day of Noah and that is Heshvan 27. It is rainbow day. Venus also returns as the Morning Star on this very day of November 5th—the day before the US election here. Venus was inline with the Sun in the middle of retrograde on Heshvan 17—October 26. The last time Venus was inline with the sun was during the Jupiter-Mars Conjunction on January 7, 2018 that was 2520 hours from The Revelation 12 Sign...

    Much more to share soon.

    While the math has been extraordinary to all of the Festivals and Noah dates, we are still here at Day 400 from the Sign. For myself it demonstrates that the calendar is proper and we are on the right trail. So the path continues I think for just a bit longer...

  20. ## PLEASE READ EVERYBODY REGARDING CORRUPT MOEDIM DATES AND CALENDARS THANK YOU! ##

    I have just checked Dr Claudia Albers' latest 2x videos on TIME and how it can be naturally and artificially accelerated (little by little). So as I read through some comments I stumble upon one commenteer who mentions the ETHIOPIAN CALENDAR which is quite accurately preserved from the indications of the book of Enoch as it seems. THIS CALENDAR STARTS AT 9/11-12 EACH GREGORIAN YEAR AND IS AROUND 7 YEARS BEHIND OUR COUNTING!! (seven years, do you hear me?!)

    I found that interesting because of the "shortening of days" in Matthew 24:22 and how this could perhaps tie into some unexpected fulfillment of the full Revelation prophecy timeline during a very short time period by still counting correctly on the divine clock? The dystopia movie "2012" would then make a lot more sense because that would be the Ethiopian year beginning at 9/12/2019 Gregorian counting... Just thinking aloud as this is new to me indeed, never thought of that. But I have recently begun reasoning about how things could yet go on in this accelerated pace to let even just a handful of people survive a full timespan of 7 years of our counting.

    Check out any internet research on the Ethiopian calendar for yourself. MARANATHA!

  21. Wouldn't that be wonderful Sheila. Praise be to God, that that day comes soon.

    (although, I do sometimes worry, that I wont make the cut, that I will be left behind)
    I know Gary covered that in an article before. And I know it is Grace through faith. But still the insecurities and doubt creap in, and satan no doubt, is very good at planting seeds in one's head, things like:

    "You're just not genuine enough", or
    "You're just don't believe or have the right kind of faith enough", or
    "You haven't read the bible for enough years, and what about all those years you turned your back on God"", or
    "You haven't read the bible for enough minutes or hours today" or
    "You're just that little bit too sinful to please God almighty".

    I don't always feel worried about my salvation, But I just seem to, do so more in the last couple of weeks; I find myself, repenting for the smallest of sins, or re-saying the salvation prayer audibly loud with my mouth, and then praying that I am found worthy to escape all these things, just to make doubly sure... What if you get left behind on a technicality.

    I see all these people on YouTube, exclaiming about their Dreams and visions that they received from the LORD. or people who tirelessly put up encouragement videos, or bible analysis, or people like y'all who encourage each other, and do deep dives into the scriptures, and edify us all with your findings, then I feel less of a Christian, less worthy..

    Which is all rubbish I know.. God loves me (and you, and you) so much that he sent his only son into the world, so that I could go to heaven (and you, and you).. He is not going to flick me off, because I didnt read enough of the bible on the day he returns.. As he says in his word, my goodness is like filthy rags to him..

    Oh I cant wait to meet him face to face, and thank him for what he did.

    1. And the very fact that you even worry about it, Jordon reflects your heart's Desire. I'm pretty sure we all hear those thoughts whispered in our ears by the enemy in a vile attempt to get us to take our eyes off of Jesus and put them on ourselves. He knows it doesn't change our Salvation standing, but would really like to stunt our testimony. Sometimes it even works for a few moments, then Our Redeemer just reminds us to look back to Him and we have to shout GRACE! GRACE! WONDERFUL GRACE! and the enemy slinks away...

    3. Jordan, I hear you. I do keep telling myself that it isn't about me, our my faith. But, it is His faithfulness. I decided to look this up. 2 Timothy 2:11-13. I found this helpful and encouraging.
      From Bible.org -
      https://bible.org/article/if-we-deny-him-he-also-will-deny-us-2-timothy-212

      "....
      There is another way to look at the passage that would resolve the apparent conflict with other passages that promise the security of the believer. The key is in the context and in the literary structure of the saying.
      First to be considered is the context. In the first part of this chapter, Paul is urging Timothy to endure for the cause of Christ. He gives Timothy the example of the soldier, who works hard to please his master and the farmer, who works for the reward of the harvest, etc. He then quotes a hymn in verses 11-12 that evidently is doctrinally correct to give Timothy further motivation for enduring. What then is the motivation? We must take the structure into account to determine this.
      The second thing to consider is the literary structure of the quote. It is quite common in Hebrew literature to see things arranged around a chiasm. It is possibly the case in this passage. And thus we have the following:
      a. For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him.
      b. If we endure, we shall also reign with Him;
      b.1 If we deny Him, He also will deny us;
      a.1 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.

      Line “a” deals with the issue of eternal life. It is clear that if one has died with Christ, eternal life is his. This first statement is in the aorist which taken in context with the next two tenses, which are present and future, must point to a past event in Paul’s and Timothy’s lives. The death must therefore refer to their positional death with Christ.
      Line “b” deals with their present situation. This is in the present tense which points to their present circumstances. They were enduring suffering. If they continued to endure, they would reign with Christ. Reigning is different than living eternally and refers to receipt of rewards and a superior quality of eternal life. This concept can be supported by passages like 1 Cor. 3:12-15; 2 Pet. 1:11; 2 Cor. 5:9-10; Rom. 14:10. This then is the motivation: eternal rewards, not eternal life.
      Line “b1 ” uses the future tense and thus looks to a future possibility in which Paul and Timothy might, in their human weakness, deny Christ. If that were to happen, Christ would certainly deny them something. Here is where the debate centers. But because line “b1” is paired with and contrasted to line “b” in the chiasm, the thing denied must be rewards and the superior quality of life.
      Line “a1 ” returns to the topic of eternal life and to the assurance that this eternal life is theirs. Thus Paul says that Christ will remain faithful even though we do not endure.
      It must be noted that lines “b” and “b1 ” deal with the same issue and lines “a” and “a1” deal with a different issue. To do as Hiebert does and include “b1” and “a1” as being more closely related than “b” and “b1” is to misunderstand Paul’s logic and the logic of the Hebrew mind.

      Furthermore, it is characteristic of the chiasm that the center holds the main idea, and so it is in this pericope which is concerning rewards. Thus, understanding the use of the chiastic structure, and taking into consideration the context of giving Timothy further motivation for endurance, helps the reader understand that Paul is explaining that eternal rewards can be earned. And consequently our eternal position is secure, it is the eternal rewards which are at stake."

      What is a chiasm (googled): Chiastic structure, or chiastic pattern, is a literary technique in narrative motifs and other textual passages. An example of chiastic structure would be two ideas, A and B, together with variants A' and B', being presented as A,B,B',A'. ... It may be regarded as chiasmus scaled up from clauses to larger units of text. From Wikipedia

    5. Jordan,

      Maybe one of the devotionals for today I've read will give you a bit of encouragement:


      God's Unstoppable Grace


      Romans 5:20:

      "Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more..."

      When a top executive is charged for corruption or a church minister is caught in the very act of adultery, you will probably hear the phrase “fallen from grace” being used of them. We have come to believe that when someone falls into sin, he falls from grace.

      But God wants us to know that when someone falls into sin, he does not fall from grace—he actually falls into grace! Thank God His grace is there to put the person back on his feet.

      The Bible tells of prostitutes and corrupt tax collectors—sinners—who fell into God’s grace and got back on their feet. If the sin in their lives could stop God’s grace, they would never have been able to receive His grace of healing, help and power to live right.

      Now, it is important you understand that God hates sin because it destroys our lives, relationships and bodies. Sin is evil! But sin is not overcome by us talking about it and relying on our willpower to overcome it. It takes God’s grace to destroy sin. In fact, it is when you are under His grace that sin has no dominion over you (see Romans 6:14). It is when you see His grace in providing His Son to put away your sins and make you eternally righteous that sin will not dominate you.

      The devil will say to you, “You think that you can still expect God’s blessings after what you did this morning?” That is when you must remind yourself that Christ alone is your perfection and righteousness. All of us have faults. None of us deserve God’s blessings. That is why we plead the grace of God, which is His unearned, unmerited and undeserved favor toward us.

      Sin does not and cannot stop God’s grace. If His grace can be cut off by sin, Jesus would never have come to save us because we were all terrible sinners. But praise God, “where sin abounded, grace abounded much more”!

      My friend, God’s grace is bigger, deeper, wider and more powerful than all the world’s sins put together. Receive His grace right now to walk in total victory over that weakness or evil habit in your life!

    6. Awesome chiastic Cathi! And it reminds me of my neglect in not recommending a very awesome read on the chiastics of Daniel, Zech, some of Rev and Matt 24 by Mark Davidson (Chronicles of the End Times). It is a very long read (over 600 pages...I am still swatting my way through it) and very recent, but well worth the $US8 for kindle...I will be buying the hard copy once I can afford the shipping of a gigantic brick to NZ!

    7. Cathi, I feel some problems quoting from the hyper-grace Joseph Prince as you first of all would have to check if the corrupt minister and adulterous Christian are truly born again brethren or just wearing some sheeps clothing. You cannot tell until you prove it. Do not lay hands suddenly on men (i.e. to identify with them as our brethren) as Paul warns us. 1 Timothy 5:22

  23. When God Ran



    Luke 15:22 :

    “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.”


    If you are a believer, you are probably familiar with the touching story of the prodigal son that Jesus shared. Who do you think the father in the story represents? Jesus’ Father in heaven, of course. Jesus was giving us a picture of His Father, who is also our Father.

    In the story, the father was seen running toward his son, who was returning home (see Luke 15:20). Do you realize that God is never described as being in a hurry in the Bible? He is always cool and composed. The only time He is portrayed as being in a hurry is in this story. Though improper in Jewish culture, the father held up his robe and ran. Where was he running to? Why was he in such a hurry?

    The father was in a hurry because he had seen his son, who was still a long way from home. He was running toward his son as he could not wait to embrace and kiss his child again.

    The father was in a hurry to clothe his son with the best robe. My friend, our Father has put the best robe—the robe of righteousness—on us. In doing so, He has reinstated us as sons of the Most High God, a position which we had lost when Adam fell.

    The father was in a hurry to put a ring on his son’s hand. Like the authority that is invested in the signet ring of a rich man’s son, our Father is eager to put back into our hands the authority to invoke His name, so that we can walk in dominion every day.

    The father was in a hurry to put sandals on his son’s feet to assure him that he was still his son—only servants went about barefoot. Our Father never wants us to feel like hired servants or outcasts. We are always His sons.

    Beloved, if the Father appears to be in a hurry, it is only because He is in a hurry to assure you of your position as His precious child!

    In a like manner to our eagerness to surrender our Cross and embrace the Fullness of Our Mission, so too, Our Lord, while Bearing His Mission, ANTICIPATED THE CROSS and Endured much of the time spend leading to it, for the Sake of it's Mission. Consider, from THIS perspective,

    Matthew 17:17; Luke 9:41; Mark 9:19;

    Yes, there was truly a Robust Rebuke and Teachings here, yet, what I've had Opened to me was that Our Lord, as we do now, Awaited His Father's Good Timing and, KNOWING the Cross was ahead, 'counted the days', EAGERLY, Hebrews 12:2, amen. What an INCREDIBLE Lord We are Honored to Serve, Praise Him, amen.

  32. Promise #307:
    I have chosen you to be My own treasured possession.


    Deuteronomy 7:6
    "For you are a holy people to Yahweh your God:
    Yahweh your God has chosen you to be a people for his own possession,
    above all peoples who are on the face of the earth."


    This declaration of love was spoken over the nation of Israel. God had set them apart for Himself and chosen them to be His own treasured possession. We know that as Christians, we have been grafted into the vine (Romans 11:16-18) and now share in the spiritual blessings from Abraham that God had originally declared over the nation of Israel.

    We too are a special people that God has chosen for Himself, His treasured possession. Ephesians 1:3-6 tells us how God lovingly chose us before the creation of the world to be adopted as His beloved children in Christ. My question today is this... Do you feel the astronomical value that God has placed on your life?

    If not, ask the Holy Spirit to show you how much you are treasured by your heavenly Father! I believe that if you ask Him today, He will be faithful to show you just how much you are loved and valued by God. In Romans 5:5 the Apostle Paul writes... "and hope doesn’t disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."

    Over-Supplying Grace

    “There once stood a wall
    Deep and wide,
    Strong and tall
    There it stood
    Built of all our unholiness
    But this Man by His blood
    Broke the wall,
    Loosed the flood
    Of the mercies of God
    to all mankind”*

    *He Died For Us, words and music by Jimmy Owens, © 1971 and 2003 by Lillenas Publishing Company.

    I’ve always loved this song. It reminds me that ever since Jesus cried, “It is finished!” (John 19:30), God unleashed a flood tide of grace upon this world, and that grace has been flowing ever since. Whatever you need today, my friend, Christ has already supplied it through the cross. You can tell yourself, “Man, whatever the situation I am in, God’s supply is there!”

    *Are You Demand- Or Supply-Oriented?*

    You know, I asked the Lord once what it meant to live under grace. He said, “When you are conscious of My constant supply to you, you are living under grace. Conversely, when you are conscious of the demand put on you to achieve, you are living under the law.” Simply put, the principle of grace is supply, while the principle of the law is demand. The law says, “You shall…You shall not…You shall…” But under grace, God says, “I will…I will…I will…” (Hebrews 8:10–12) Can you see the difference? Under grace, God is the one doing all the doing and supplying, not you. Praise God, this is our relationship with Him under the new covenant of grace!

    When you are demand-oriented, you see everything as a demand placed on you—“I must do this…I must do that…” The result? You feel stressed and pressurized to perform, meet people’s expectations and achieve results. But when you are living under grace, you see the rich supply from God providing whatever you need for your situation despite the demands. The result? You walk in peace and always see God’s provision because your eyes are focused on His unfailing supply. As we deal with life on a day-by-day basis, we can be demand-oriented or supply-oriented. So let me ask you this: Are you demand-oriented or supply-oriented?

    *Be Supply-Conscious*

    My friend, when you’re supply-oriented, you’ll see God work miracles in your life. Not long ago, I went to Universal Studios on the island of Sentosa, Singapore, with my family. While I was having some food at a food court, a lady who worked there walked right up to me and greeted me, “Pastor Prince!”

    So I said, “Hi,” and she said, “Wow, I’m so glad to see you here.” She talked with me a little and then said, “You know, I’ve been having this pain in my back for the past few days. I prayed and asked God to send me someone and He sent you. Will you please pray for me?”

    I looked around me. The setting wasn’t “right”. There wasn’t anointed worship music playing in the background. In fact, the food court was noisy with the chatter of people and the clatter of cutlery and crockery. I thought to myself, “You want me to pray for you here? Now?”

    Then, I remembered what the Lord had been telling me about being supply-oriented. So I stood up, placed my hand gently on her elbow and said, “Lord, I just thank You for Your supply of grace. I just thank You that there’s more grace here than her pain. I just thank You that You are healing her back now, adjusting and restoring whatever needs adjusting and restoring. I thank You that she’s completely healed in Jesus’ name.” No fanfare, no feeling holy goose bumps running up and down my arms, just a simple, honest prayer. In the midst of the setting of that ordinary, noisy food court, I just saw the supply there for her healing.

    After praying for this precious lady, I said to her, “Okay, don’t worry about the pain anymore. Don’t be conscious of it. Just ignore it. The Lord has healed you already.” She thanked me and went on talking about her family and other things. Then, all of a sudden, she said excitedly, “Oh, hey, it’s gone! The pain that’s been there for a number of days is GONE!”

    I remember just standing there, looking at her, warmed by God’s love for the dear lady and amazed at the sheer simplicity of His grace toward us.

    My friend, right in the ordinariness of everyday life, you can receive from the supply that is constantly flowing toward you. Do you need healing today? Do you need wisdom? Peace for a troubled heart? You can receive it right now if you can see His supply all around you, giving you what you need. It doesn’t matter where you find yourself. You don’t have to wait for the “right” time, place or external circumstances when it comes to asking and receiving from God. Simply look away from the demand, see His supply and receive by grace what you need.

    *Grace Over-Supplies Your Need*

    Jesus walked in supply-consciousness.

    In the account of the feeding of the 5,000, we see how the Lord was clearly conscious of heaven’s supply in the face of scarcity. (John 6:1–13)

    When Jesus saw the five loaves and two small fish, unlike His disciples, He didn’t see the impossible demand placed on Him—feeding more than 5,000 hungry people with a boy’s small lunch. He saw the supply. His disciples, on the other hand, saw the demand. It bothered them so much that they urged Him to send the people home. They were concerned that they did not have enough food for everyone nor did they have enough money to buy that much food.

    But because Jesus saw the supply, He was able to thank the Father for the little that was in His hands, and the little multiplied and multiplied and kept on multiplying! Not only were the people fed till their bellies were bulging, but there were also 12 baskets full of leftovers! What an awesome miracle! When grace supplies, it’s always exceedingly, abundantly and above all you can ever ask or imagine! (Ephesians 3:20)

    Pause and think about this for a moment. Are you facing a five-loaves-and-two-small-fish situation in your life right now? Is there a situation of scarcity in your finances or family life? Are you struggling to find enough time to get your work done as well as spend quality time with your family? Whatever your area of lack, take some time to reread the last two paragraphs, and saturate your heart and mind with the largeness of God’s heart and supply toward you. See the abundance Jesus wants to bless you with instead of your impossible situation and receive His supply with “12 baskets full of leftovers” in every area of insufficiency!

    *The Reason For Our Supply*

    Do you know why we can see that the supply is all around us? It’s not because we are good or deserving. It’s because 2,000 years ago, a lonely and beaten-beyond-recognition figure hung on Calvary’s cross. Jesus chose to take our place and become a curse for us. Bearing our sins and our curse, He was cut off from all the blessings of God. He was cursed so that we can be blessed. He cried out, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46) so that today, you and I can say, “My Father, my Father, why have You so blessed me?”

    He was in darkness, so that we can be in eternal light. He took all that we deserved, so that we can be supplied with and receive all that He deserves all the time!

    *Grace Supplies Because Love Is Always Giving*

    My friend, it’s not hard to understand how the grace of God is always supplying when you know that the essence of God Himself is love and that LOVE GIVES. The Bible says in two places that “God is love”. (1 John 4:8, 16) Interestingly, the Hebrew word for “love” is made up of three Hebrew letters: Aleph, Hey and Bet (note that Hebrew reads from right to left).

    In other words, put Hey (grace) back in the centre of the word for “father” and you get back the word for “love”. Can you see it? In the midst of your Father’s heart is love. The Father is all about love!

    Now, what does love do? John 3:16 tells us “For God so loved the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son…” Love gives! Love doesn’t take. Love gives! In fact, love gives more than you can take! So God, who is defined as love, and who personifies perfect love, is always giving, giving, giving.

    If you read the Gospels, you’ll find that during His earthly ministry, God the Son was always giving. Jesus meant every word He said when He said, “…the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28) Even in His glorified, resurrected form in heaven, He remains a servant forever, signified by the golden girdle around His waist. (Revelation 1:13, KJV) Yes, He is Lord of lords, King of kings, but according to His Word, He is also a servant who delights in serving and giving to you!

    *The Personal Touch*

    Throughout the Gospels, you’ll always find Jesus preaching, teaching and healing, and He often gave more than just health when He healed the sick. I am reminded of the poor leper who came to the Lord and asked Him to make him clean. The leper must have been desperate—he not only broke the law when he left the leper colony to look for Jesus, but he was also risking his life because he could have been stoned to death for breaking the law and endangering the health of others.

    When the leper met Jesus, he worshipped Him and said, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” I’m so glad that Jesus didn’t deal with him according to the demands of the law. He didn’t say, “How dare you break the rabbinical law and come out into the open? You’re a sinner! You’re unclean! Get lost before the people stone you to death!” No, His grace was flowing abundantly toward the man. His supply of healing was there for the taking.

    So, filled with compassion and unconditional love, Jesus put out His hand and touched the leper, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” And immediately, the man was healed. (Matthew 8:1–3) Notice that Jesus touched the leper first before He healed him. Now, why is this significant?

    Simply put, that simple touch restored a sense of humanity and dignity to the man who had not been touched for a long time. Because of his unclean and probably physically repulsive condition, no one wanted to touch, let alone embrace or kiss, him. He himself could not touch, hug or kiss his loved ones. Can you imagine what that does to the self-esteem and sanity of a human being? Jesus alone understood that he had not just been sick, but also alienated and dehumanized.

    I want you to see that love gave the man more than just health. Jesus knew that the leper needed more than just physical healing, so He gave above and beyond what the leper had hoped for. Besides health, Jesus gave him back his dignity and the joy of being able to embrace and be embraced by his friends and loved ones. Again, we see the over-supplying love and grace of our Lord!

    ReplyDelete

    *Love Always Gives More Than What You Ask For*

    That’s the thing about Jesus—when He gives, He always over-supplies! He doesn’t know how to give you just enough. We see this again when He healed the man with the withered hand. (Luke 6:6–10) When everyone else around them saw only the hopelessness of the situation (how do you heal a withered hand?), Jesus saw the supply for the man to be made whole. He saw heaven’s supply of healing all around that man and his withered hand—and that withered hand became replaced with a whole, healthy one.

    In the Gospel of Luke, it says that it was the man’s “right hand” that was withered. Now, whether or not he was right-handed, losing the use of one hand must have greatly affected his ability to make a living. And when a person can’t really make a living, when he can’t provide enough for his family, he loses the respect of others, even his loved ones. So when Jesus healed the man, He gave the man more than just a new right hand. He gave him back his livelihood, and with that, his self-worth and the respect of others. That’s my Jesus! That’s the style with which He loves us and supplies our needs!

    My friend, maybe you need a breakthrough today. Maybe you’re discouraged because you feel that your situation is hopeless. Or like the two men in the above accounts, maybe you suffer from a physical condition and want to see healing and restoration. Listen, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. The same way He had compassion on the leper and the man with the withered hand and over-supplied their needs is the same way He has compassion on you and wants you to experience His oversupply. Don’t focus on the hopelessness of your situation. Instead, see the oversupply of grace and expect God to give to you beyond your wildest imaginings!

    *Faith Takes From The Greater One*

    The Lord said this to me once: “Grace supplies, love gives, faith takes”. What does faith do? Faith takes. That’s our part as believers. Our part is to take. I’m not talking about greed. I’m talking about understanding what faith simply is—faith is the hand that takes from the hand of God.

    “But Pastor Prince, the Bible says that it is more blessed to give.” (Acts 20:35)

    Yes, that’s true when it comes to our relationship with man. With our fellow man, it is more blessed to give than to receive. But when it comes to God, we please Him when we receive from Him. The Bible says that the lesser is always blessed by the greater. (Hebrews 7:7) Obviously, between God and us, God will always be the greater one. So when we humble ourselves and take our place as the receiver, we’re letting God be God in our lives and He loves that.

    “Well, Pastor Prince, what about giving to God and to others? Isn’t that important?”

    My friend, when you are blessed by God, when you experience His love and unmerited favor, you can’t help but want to serve Him and bless others.

    It’s when we remember that it all came from Him first that we’ll be giving to and serving Him and others out of the right spirit. Like David, we’ll say, “…For all things come from You, and of Your own we have given You.” (1 Chronicles 29:14)

    *Oh You Of Little Faith’*

    Our problem with faith—like Jesus’ disciples—is that we take too little from the Lord. What did Jesus usually say to His disciples when He chided them? He usually said, “Oh you of little faith.” Little faith? What was Jesus telling them in essence? I believe that He was telling them, “I am so full of supply, why do you take so little from Me?”

    Even Jesus’ chiding of His disciples is so full of love and encouragement! Notice He didn’t say, “Oh you of little fasting,” or “Oh you of little prayer.” He said, “Oh you of little faith.” He was telling them, “Draw more from Me, take more from My supply.” Oh, what a beautiful Savior we have!

    So, my friend, our faith is small when we take only a little from God. When we take little from Him for our needs, we must be taking from somewhere else. This means that our faith is in someone or something else and God is just a “standby” or “last resort”. That should not be the case. God should always come first. Man will fail and disappoint you, but God will never!

    Typically, most of us are not good receivers. When you give someone a gift, you often hear them say, “Oh no, you shouldn’t have. I don’t deserve this.” We all need to ask God to make us better receivers, to enlarge our capacities to receive not based on how deserving we think we are, but based solely on His grace to supply and give.

    *Take As Much As You Want!*

    Because we are such poor receivers, when we do take, we take a little or just enough. We tell ourselves that that’s the polite and refined thing to do. Now, again, I’m not talking about hoarding and being greedy, especially at the buffet table! I’m talking about how God’s nature or style is to give you as much as you want.

    Let’s look at the feeding of the 5,000 again. I want you to see something:

    John 6:11–12
    And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.”

    The men, women and children ate “as much as they wanted” until “they were filled”! “Sir, you want more bread? Here, have as much as you want.” “Uncle Peter, can I have some more fish?” “Sure boy, have two more, no, have three more!” Everyone ate to his heart’s content!

    Maybe you have been told this: “It all depends on God’s will. Sometimes He supplies more, sometimes He supplies less. God works in mysterious ways.” Yet, when you read the Bible for yourself, you’ll find that God’s style is to give us as much as we want. The supply only stops when we say, “Enough, Lord! Stop!”

    *Living A Life Of Thanksgiving*

    So here’s the bottom-line: In God’s kingdom, the supply never runs out. It only stops, as far as you are concerned, when you tell God to stop supplying. You decide. As your loving heavenly Father, God gives lavishly and freely to you. And He can do this judiciously because of His Son’s finished work at the cross. God does not give with a miserly hand. He is not cheap or stingy. God loves you and His love gives. His love over-supplies.

    Your part is just to exercise faith by taking from God. People often say, “Depend on God. Depend on God.” Sometimes, this sounds a bit abstract. How do you depend on God? You choose to see His loving heart and generous supply when others see only the demand. And you reach out in faith and take from God.

    When you realize that it’s all about God’s love and undeserved favor toward you, you’ll be thanking God all the time. Instead of complaining and being stressed out when you are demand-centered, you’ll be at rest and have more than enough to give to others. My friend, may you choose to live in the realm of God’s constant supply and lavish love!

  42. Nora, thank you for handling First Love business, amen. Sheila B., watching Colleen M's latest, this morning, and her touching upon the False Armistice delay of 4 days resonated with 4 Headlines, as you mentioned above, and this circling around "311" as in Rev 3:11, wowzers.

    G#311--anabole--delay, postponement
    H#311--achar--after, future

    As I posted on her Vid, IF there is an 11/7+4=11/11 choreography ahead as, perhaps, a last measure of Grace, then that puts us right smack BACK to 9/11!!! Her latest is 7/11=9/11. Well, 11/11 = 9/11 also, due to the JULIAN months used over the GREGORIAN dates (ala L LOTT's latest). So, NOVember is the NINTH month, making 11/11 the 11th day of the NINTH Month, or, 9/11, once again, oh my, Maranatha!

    1. I see Sherry had noted about the 11/11 on Unsealed as well. I recall us discussing this last year as so many of us had been having this weird 'every time I get the sudden urge to look at the clock, it is 11:11' moment. I thought we might even have something of significance last Nov 11th. I am not holding my breath for this coming 11th period however, as I have learned that I am very good at making a fool of myself with my 'date declarations'.

      Plenty other things for the bride to be 'engaged' in (as Cy spoke so well about...)

    3. Well, at the risk of being a fool (what the hey, I'm used to it:-) I think this is it, guys, for something really earth-shaking. Think back to last year and how so much of what we and others were seeing and hearing back then adds up to this strange, but precise scenario at this precise time. (lots of lemons (etrogs), winter holiday scenes, 311's, 711's ,911's, 1111's etc. ) Now we have numerous witnesses attesting to being shown this overlapping of time as we also have ME serpents suddenly appearing in the news, (and the poisonous one just adopted as a national symbol for Israel?) Besides all of the war drums and "natural" disasters, we also have the ever-growing soft-disclosure on E.T.'s in MSM. The headline at the Drudge Report declared "JUDGEMENT DAY" this morning beneath a dark and obscure head shot of Donald Trump.

      I believe an extremely exciting and important CONVERGENCE is here in these overlapping dates--Nov.7-Nov. 9, 2018 and I believe the linchpin of this Gordion knot we've all been trying to untangle is in The AUTHORITY of the NAIL. (I hope I said that rightly:-)

      Would not just such a move show our Lord's Sovereignty over time and space once again?
      I am so LOOKING UP!!! MARANATHA!

  44. I can hardly believe it, but I do believe I now know what "the last stanza of the 43rd Triangle" refers to.
    It is the LAST ELECTED GOVT. of the U.S.A. I was led all day to look at this from an Election standpoint, but I just couldn't put it all together until a few minutes ago while out walking the circle driveway and asking the Lord to help me out. Then it hit me like a brick.
    I discovered today that the policy making relationship between the special interests, Congress and the Federal Bureaucracy is referred to as the IRON TRIANGLE. And it is to benefit the Elite, rather than the Common People. It works like this:
    The Special Interests (aka Lobbyists) give electoral support to Congress who gives funding and political support to the Bureaucrats who give low regulation and special favors to Special Interests.
    What goes around comes around, so the lobbying begets the policy execution which begets the friendly legislation and oversight. If you enter Iron Triangle in a search, you will see this explained using a triangular format.

    The 43rd triangular number is 946 (as Miguel pointed so graciously pointed out)

    Gk#946--bdelugma--detestable thing, abomination, (AoD and all that entails in Scripture.)
    H# 946 --Bunah--understanding, discretion

    The last stanza refers to the end of something and as detestable as this triangular govt. is, the next govt. after this one elected tonight, I believe will be the One World Govt. of the AC and that Triangle of Evil after America has realized some severe and debilitating judgments. So I think as we cross over this election tonight, we will be crossing the last stanza of this elected, but ungodly govt. that will very shortly be overtaken by another one far more detestable. (And hopefully, our feet will be on soft, but steady ground where we won't need shoes:-)Just wanted to share that as I feel strongly in my spirit it is the correct understanding of those words. But as always, use your own discernment and please throw in a wrench if you see one. Blessings, All and Even so, Lord, Come!

    2. Bless you, Jeff, but if I got it right, it is ALL glory to our LORD. I came across an article today that was a tough read for this non-mathmatically inclined brain of mine, but it was an awesome verification of not only our God's use of His numbers, but His use of overlapping them as well. For anyone who cares to work out some mental math muscles the article is @fivedoves.com and titled "A Union of Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1. Some phenomenal information there re the Master Mathematician:-)

    8. TY, Brothers for that input. I know my heart nearly jumped right out of me when it "dawned" on me because I had just been telling Him earlier, Lord, I'm just not smart enough to make sense of this. LoL, it was such a huge sense of relief as it's about driven me nuts trying to figure that one out, but I don't believe it was supposed to be understood until today. I believe everything we have ALL been drawn to look at, see, dig into, study, pray about and share has been to prepare us all in heart, mind, and spirit for this strange Moment in Time, or rather this Moment "outside" of Time that we are going to experience as our Lord and Savior snatches us all up out of here and home to Himself. Everything that seemed to elude in this linear construct is going to make perfect sense all at once. Still unimaginable at the moment, but I believe our transformed minds will be able to handle it:-)

      Cathi, I just had to ask the Lord to let me grasp the @fivedoves article spiritually after my brain cells got to spinning. And He did:-D

    9. Dear Sheila, OF COURSE your government was always to benefit the Elite rather than the common people. All governments on this earth without submission to Christ MUST fail to consider the people. I'm glad you finally got this truth revealed! :-)

      King Solomons style of reign was very rare and lasted 40 years yet ending up with the division of the land because of false religion worship... That's also the reason why we have to be SINLESS LIKE CHRIST in our transformed glorified bodies to reign with Him with a "rod of iron" during the millennium. That is the most important feature to establish a 1000 years lasting worldwide government administration without ANY injustice or corruption. MARANATHA!

    10. sorry I am totally lost. What is the last stanza of the 43rd Triangle? is this an American saying???

    11. LOL, Annabel. I have always known that. Any American that's ever had to physically work for a living knows that, but it was just a matter of connecting those particular words to it:-)

      Ryan, it was a dream I had awhile back and the words I heard in it. It went something like
      "once you cross the last stanza of the 43rd triangle, your feet will be on soft but steady ground and you won't need shoes. The grass will be hard and sticky getting there."

      And T&T, I had a dream last night about you...I couldn't see you and ofc I don't know what you look like, but I knew it was you and you were weighing out some beans (maybe coffee beans) and there were 726 of them. But then I did make spaghetti and garlic bread for supper last night so....:-)

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
