God says “I’m behind your rotten weather.”

Amos 4:6-11

(6) “Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities.
And lack of bread in all your places;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.
(7) “I also withheld rain from you,
When there were still three months to the harvest.
I made it rain on one city,
I withheld rain from another city.
One part was rained upon,
And where it did not rain the part withered.

(8) So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water,
But they were not satisfied;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.

It’s pretty clear. God is trying to get our attention. Ebola, ISIS, 80 inches of snow in Boston (and more coming) and throughout the Northeast, Northern California drowning and Southern California burning up, crops, parched, gangs and violence in the cities (Missouri), Lyme disease (Texas) burning heat wave (Oklahoma), beheadings for Brits and many others, missionaries killed, new diseases attacking children primarily, antibiotics that no longer work, flu vaccines that only help 1/3rd etc. etc.

(9) “I blasted you with blight and mildew.
When your gardens increased,
Your vineyards,
Your fig trees,
And your olive trees,
The locust devoured them;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.
(10) “I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt;
Your young men I killed with a sword,
Along with your captive horses;
I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.

The mass shootings are a plague. Drug addiction is a plague. The embarrassing failure of the American press is a plague. Corruption in government is a plague. Mysterious diseases like autism and Alzheimer are a plague.

(11) “I overthrew some of you,
As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.

The Congressional Democrats conducting witch hunts, hoaxes, and constant impeachment talk is a plague.

God wants our attention. Does He have it yet?

Three Options for the Day of the Lord

As the political situation becomes more difficult, not just in the USA but also and most urgently worldwide, more and more people ask when will God come to judge the earth.  Almost all information on this is divisive and unclear.  Isaiah speaks of the Day of Wrath.

Isa 13:13-15 – The day of wrath is the day of the lord.   (KJV) 13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.  14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.  15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.

Here is where everyone returns to his own land.  Whether this applies to us believers is a matter of discussion and on whether you believe the rapture occurs before the day of the Lord, or after this passage or whether you believe it is later on.  Definitely one thing is sure – we will all decide on which side of Right or Wrong we stand.

There are 3 interpretations of the “day of the Lord.”

1 – Believers are raptured and watch the events as a cloud of witnesses.

2 – Believers stay here through the judgment and are protected, hidden in some safe place.

3 – Believers stay through the judgment and act as helpers to those whom God wants to save because God has said, “occupy ‘til I come” so we do not leave our post.

The answer to this question depends on timing.  Since God lives in eternity, when He speaks of time its relevance to us is like walking through a mist.  When He says “soon” we cannot know if this is 10 years or 100.

The word “flee” home tells us that people are not returning home voluntarily.  Something has driven them to leave in a big hurry.

These questions have no universal agreement as of yet.  I feel sure they will be straightened out in due time.  For now, I’d suggest that no one can be absolutely sure.

Impeachment Exposes Corruption in High Places

kim-clement

As Washington DC goes through a miasma of turmoil, reviewing what God promised in 2016 needs to be re-read.  Our government is not a flash in the pan.  We are here for the long haul. Please note how much of this is already happening.

I’ve been active in politics since 1960 and never have I seen so much change and turmoil.  But God is neither surprised nor unprepared.  These following words come from the ministry of Kim Clement who ha a remarkably accurate record of predicting the truth.

In addition 500 Christian pastors are running for public office in 2016.  This reminds me of the Revolutionary War, when Pastors announced from their pulpits that they were removing their black robes and girding on a sword for America.  It influenced many people at that time.

God is neither Democrat or Republican

SOME GOOD NEWS (PROPHECIES) REGARDING THE CURRENT POLITICAL SITUATION

December 31, 2014 As I saw these different flags, the Spirit of God said to me, there shall be a revelation that shall bring the United Nations to a place of dismay and humiliation. I shall, this next year, I shall deal with corrupt leaders, even in the United States of America and there shall be shining lights that will come from a people that will say “we are dissatisfied with Republicans and we are dissatisfied with Democrats.” There is a new party that has arisen and shall come forth and capture the hearts of the young people, says the Lord.

February 22, 2014 This man will throttle the enemies of the West, and there are highly embarrassing moments that are about to occur for many, many politicians in this nation. There will be a shaking amongst the Democrats in the upcoming elections, but unsettling for the Republicans.

October 29, 2010 -What you are about to see with your own eyes is how the people of this nation will turn things around.  There is a changing of the guard that’s coming your way.  Something very unusual is about to transpire.  They will say, what has happened to the Democrats?  They’ll say what’s happened to the liberals?  They’ll say, what has happened to the Democrats, then they’ll say what’s happened to the Republicans as well?  For God says I am joining forces so that something fresh and something new may arise.  How many of you are ready for something new to arise?   Now they’ll say, what’s happened to the Democrats? Now they say what’s happened to Republicans? We are ready for change!  We are ready for change! We are ready for change!  We are ready for change!   The Spirit of the Lord says they will say, what’s happened to the left?  They’ll look to the right and say, what’s happened to them?  Then they’ll say what’s happened to those who have called themselves liberal and those who are conservatives.  Then they’ll look straight ahead and they’ll hear the sound of righteousness.

October 14, 2006 -I spoke of unbuckling the Bible belt and revealing and exposing the nakedness. Well, God says, be thrilled about this, when I have exposed nakedness I clothe with garments of righteousness. And this is what shall take place in Florida. This will take place in Massachusetts. This will take place in the Northeast. This will take place in Texas. This will take place on the west coast. I’ll go as far as Oregon but God said listen, there is going to be great exposures of nakedness and then I will clothe with righteousness and this nation shall experience a breakthrough and a revival as it has prayed for, for 100 years. It shall shake this nation, says the Lord.

I suggest you look around to see who is returning to his own homeland and why, to teach you about the end of the age. It may well be you.

God is changing the face of American politics. Rejoice!

God’s Hands Moved this Hospital Clock –

Published on Oct 3, 2014

On the last night before Bob Jones’ passing Bonnie Jones was alone with him in his hospital room and observed the clock on the wall as it sped forward. At exactly 11:55 p.m. the red second-hand began to move quickly then rested at the perpendicular position pointing to twelve. Immediately the minute hand began to advance forward rapidly. Of course when the minute hand moved, the hour hand advanced as well. Throughout this process the minute hands did not move. It all stands for the new move of God for this generation.

Join Bonnie Jones as she describes and interprets this amazing spiritual sign for the Body of Christ.
WATCH HERE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48ZTaXlc9S4

As you watch the hands move you can tell by the background conversation that no one has sped the clock forward with any device. All the talk is current.

This text can also be found on The Elijah List.

“Bob Jones’ Clock Stopped Here: We Must Discern the Times”
Bonnie Jones, Pineville, NC

He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Matthew 16:2-4

Acceleration
On the last night before Bob Jones’ passing, I was alone with him in his hospital room and observed the clock on the wall as it sped forward. At exactly 11:55 p.m. the red second-hand began to move quickly, then rested at the perpendicular position pointing to twelve. Immediately the minute hand began to advance forward rapidly. Of course when the minute hand moved, the hour hand advanced as well.

In this quick transition, the clock stopped at exactly eight o’clock for a period of five seconds. It began spinning forward again until both hands reached exactly midnight then they stopped. The red second-hand jumped forward five seconds then the clock seemed to reset itself. This process took a total of five minutes. The same thing happened with the clock exactly one week earlier. At that time four others, beside myself, were in the room to bear witness to this extraordinary yet prophetic happening.

Video verified

Several weeks after Bob’s passing, we talked with the head of security from the hospital. We showed him the video we made on our phone of the clock in fast-forward. He was amazed and said it was impossible for this to happen. He told us that all hospital clocks are synchronized to atomic time for the purpose of recording births, deaths, surgeries, etc., because the timing must be precise. Yet, this did happen – not once, but twice.

I believe that God was showing us a demonstration of spiritual things being accelerated in the Body of Christ. The fact that the clock stopped at eight o’clock indicates a new beginning. There was grace before the new day (11:55 p.m.) that has been extended to the Body of Christ. Bob would speak of the number eleven, from Isaiah 11, where God is stretching forth His hand a second time to the remnant. And I believe fifty-five reveals great grace being released to bring in the billion-soul harvest Bob often spoke of.

It shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time, to recover the remnant of His people who are left… Isaiah 11:11

Prophecy explained

I believe the red second-hand resting on the twelve pointed to God’s divine apostolic government being established. In fact, I believe it is already in position and now being revealed by the Spirit of Truth. There were five witnesses – also meaning grace. The first time it happened was February 6; six representing the number of man.

The time 11:55 also represents two chapters in the Bible: Isaiah 55 from the Old Testament, and Hebrews from the New. Hebrews chapter 11 is known as the faith chapter. It’s loaded with testimonies from the heroes of faith. Yet the night of Bob’s passing, I witnessed his demonstration of obedience that leads to faith. And this is what I believe the New Testament saints walked in. Bob would always talk about Isaiah 35 being the Highway of Holiness and Isaiah 55 being the conditions for it.

Highway of Holiness

Daily we need to heed to the voice of the Lord and obey. Too many have partaken of the fruit of the world and walked in its ways. Our soul is easily swayed by all the distractions of this fast-paced world. Yet our spirit should be the reigning authority in our life. If our spirit is submitted to the Holy Spirit, we will make choices according to the Father’s will and stay on His Highway. As the Body of Believers walk with the Lord on the Highway of Holiness, surrendered in obedience to Him, their toxins are flushed out of the soul and only their redeemed spirit remains.

In short, all roads lead to the same place, although some take detours and never return to the straight and narrow way. Some are all about self and some are all about I AM. Take the road less traveled and arrive on time in the arms of Jesus.

Please view this video of the clock in fast-forward recorded on February 6th, 2014 in Bob’s hospital room (link below). Indeed, it was a supernatural phenomenon that only God could make possible. It’s an extraordinary prophecy and we need to take heed and understand: the time is NOW for HARVEST.

Time has been accelerated and we must be able to discern the signs of the times. Don’t let the distractions of this world keep you from walking with Him in the eternal realm.

Step into the harvest field of hope and follow after Him, only He can make you a fisher of all mankind. Follow the road less traveled and bear witness to the Anointing.

How will Jesus Return

The Bible is quite specific on how Jesus will return.  He Himself said He would return in the clouds of heaven. In the book of Acts right before His accession into heaven the angels spoke to his disciples and said He would return just as He left, in a cloud.

Acts 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

This seems pretty straight forward, but there is something we miss.  What or who are the clouds?

Matthew 26:64  Hereafter shall ye (King James for you’all) see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

We have a choice here.  We might assume this means clouds from the first heaven, the atmosphere around the earth.  But assumptions lead us astray. That would make sense only if Jesus were going to the moon or maybe Mars, but he is going to the heaven of His father.

The clouds of heaven are defined in the book of Hebrews.

Hebrews 12:1 we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

In other words, clouds are the witnesses (us) those who have died and are in heaven.  This is the makeup of the cloud that both received Jesus at the on resurrection Sunday and also “saints” who will come back with Him.  The first cloud was made up of Abraham, David and all the luminaries of the Old Testament.

 The next cloud appearance will be of those, perhaps including you and me, to come back to earth with Him.  If you are Holy Spirit filled and under the Covenant of God, it is your privilege to return with Him.jesus-returns

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

At that time Jesus will not be coming as a lamb, but as an angry lion, prepared to require final judgment on a world gone bad.  And that is a day we all wish to see, whether now or in the years to come.

In conclusion:  Jesus is coming for believers, not unbelievers and many will not be going with him.  When this happens is the main issue. We do not know when, just we have His promise that it will happen.

Then we shall see no separation between heaven and earth.  That is our final hope and destination.

The Multiverse of the Individual

The once popular notion that ontogeny recapitulated phylogeny, which claimed that embryos can predict future development, is no more scientifically valid but I see an interesting application of this to how we understand Jesus from the most basic “I never heard of Him” to the Kingdom-active life of a completely committed believer.cropped-picture-of-jesus.jpg

God’s people began ignorant

The apostles (disciples) were, just as we are, completely ignorant about who Jesus really was, and what his program and purpose on earth might be.  They started out believing, because they were part and parcel of his activities, that he was a nice man with special God-given powers.  When he died they scattered not because they were disloyal but because they thought he was like other men, the way any person who recognizes that his hero is dead and he needs to find another hero, another leader.

A dead Jesus is better than a living one

Slaughter of Babies – A Sign of Momentous Change

How do I know this?

After Joseph died as Chief Magistrate of Egypt there came to power a Pharaoh who had no regard for the Jews. He commanded:

Exodus 1:22 all his people, saying, “Every son who is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.”

Exodus 2:1 -2 And a man of the house of Levi went and took as wife a daughter of Levi. 2 So the woman conceived and bore a son. And when she saw that he was a beautiful child (Moses), she hid him three months.

Moses is saved by the Pharaoh’s daughter and about 40 years later he returned to Egypt where he obeyed God and engineered the salvation of Israel from slavery and hailed as the revered savior of Israel.

Over a thousand years later Jesus is born in Bethlehem. When the King in Israel hears about another “King” being born, jealous and fearing loss of his power, he kills a large group of babies. History does repeat itself.

16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:

18 “A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more.”

I was once told Jews believe the number was 6,000 baby boys. 

Now, 2000+ years have passed and massive numbers of Muslim and Christian babies are being slaughtered in Syria, Iraq and in the Kurdish region, by Hamas using children as human shields, and when they can get away with it, even in Israel. 

One Child Policy is morphing around the globe

Across the planet it is girl babies being aborted because male children are better at earning money to pay for one’s parent’s old age.  This practice fails to consider that it will take an adequate number of females to provide children for those males. In some areas of China which has the largest gap between male and female populations there are fights over access to women. 

This is especially problematic in China where a Chinese man is expected to marry a Chinese woman. But women are smart enough to know they do not want to be regarded as a “brood mare” for society. Many educated Chinese women now simply eschew marriage altogether making the situation worse. Three of my Chinese co-workers were forced into marriage by panicky parents.

In the USA females are thriving and male children are decaying of neglect, inadequate education and preparation for adulthood because of fatherlessness. Both males and females are dying of drug overdoses caused by a number of factors, including greedy doctors and manufacturers, and this generation’s desire to avoid pain in any form and firmly believe there is no afterlife to prepare for.

World views produce governmental systems

Two forms of atheism lead to this indifference. True atheism believes that there is no afterlife; we are natural beings only. We are born, live and die, like animals and that is the end of the story.

Then there is practical atheism which recognizes all of the above but also sees no responsibility or accountability involved in being alive. Both lead to inertia and wasted lives.

Both forms lean towards socialistic societies which gives the government the authority to rule the private citizen so we now have worldwide an interest in socialism as a cure for the evils of society which the indifferent will embrace.  Both forms are essentially deterministic which allows the believer to enjoy blissful if erroneous inner peace. There is great satisfaction is saying evil does not exist, or it cannot touch me, and it doesn’t matter in the end anyway. An illusion like that can take over your whole mind and personality, a euphoric psychosis if you like demanding nothing but acquiescence.

Democratic systems, when parliamentary or representative, monarchies or theocracies all have inherent demands on the citizen which the worry-free-isms do not.

Bad theology, and that is what all this is, can somehow miss killing the infant in the womb and then through the generation of nonsense-happiness kill the rest of someone’s life. This is a society without a future.

Beheading – A Symbol for the pan-Islamic Plan

A metaphor is “representative or symbolic of something else, especially something abstract.” Life illustrates theology.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/james-wright-foley-american-journalist-beheaded-in-new-isis-video-titled-message-to-america-breaking-news_892109.html

To the luckless journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, it can hardly be called abstract – it is the reality of a lost head, but symbolically it tells the tale of a dangerous, demonically inspired political system that plans to behead all those nations which disagree with its evil theology. It is a planetary warning to especially Americans, as the keeper of the international purse strings, but also China and all Europe down to tiny little Belize. Even Australia, which has some hope of being isolated, is on guard, full tilt.

These barbarians will tolerate nothing less than full cooperation of every nation, every leader, and more importantly every kind of money in every pocket, a hell on earth.

Symbolism is a Multiverse

Shrouded in dark flowing robes (another metaphor) that cover the face and thus every intention as well the dark hidden truth say they cannot “face” us. They want your head – the head of your family, the head of your government. Their mind is now your mind. People are things. “We slice infants in half. Obey or die.” Symbols expose a reality we may not want revealed.

The Goal – You get a new head

The United States already had a headless leader, President Obama, who thinks that to deny reality will make it go away. He has been reading too much Alice in Wonderland, like the half visible grinning cat in a tree, uninvolved. The Islamic State, he says, is not Islamic which ironically they put it in their name. This is another version of asking what “ISIS is.” Really?

Furthermore, the president calls it ISIL which is a much larger territory than ISIS. ISIL encompasses parts of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, and a place called Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East.

Air strikes can win the day, he says, while 31,000 ISIS soldiers wonder how a drone can do all that – since they can just run like so many roaches to another Islamic hideout and wait for the drones to drone on by. And he says, ISIS is not Islamic.

The head that has fallen to the ground is all religions but Islam. If it were not so, wouldn’t Islamic nations such a Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and all countries ending in -Stan, come against this scheming cabal? But instead they let American guns and money fight their intra-Islamic battles.

As we settle their quarrels we elevate Saudi Arabia to take over the Islamic world domination program while hardly lifting a finger. If we let them play this game we are as headless as Leaders-From-Behind.

News media – also headless

Beheading tells us who they are and what their plans are. The head is no longer our God but theirs – Allah, an ancient god of war, celebrates death. Our Western God is for life. It is also a metaphor for what has happened to the America news media. They lost their head years ago and now are scurrying around looking for the lost stories of the past 7 years.

Deut 30:19 I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;

We are in the valley of decision. Israel has made its decision. They said- we didn’t fight in Germany to the death, but we will now.

What will we decide?

Why Pres. Trump is called “Cyrus”

A welk known Texas minister said last year, “What the public wants now is prophecy.” Well there is plenty of it.

The public wants prophecy

It started in the USA but the idea that God has appointed Donald Trump as a modern day political figure like Cyrus of the Old Testament was picked up also by Israel. Applauded by Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli leasers, they renamed a section in honor of President Trump even calling him a modern Cyrus. Trump is hailed as a prophet and blessing to the nation. https://www.theepochtimes.com/israel-unveils-new-settlement-named-trump-heights-on-golan_2965819.html

Trump as warrior for Israel

In the USA a book was published prior to the 2016 election predicting Donald Trump’s surprising win. https://www.amazon.com/Gods-Chaos-Candidate-American-Unraveling/dp/0998216402/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=god%27s+chaos+candidate&qid=1567425961&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Trump’s win had also been predicted by well known Christian evangelist/musician and South African prophet Kim Clement in 2007; Clement died 15 days after that election.

https://godinanutshell.com/2017/01/26/kim-clement-the-last-prophecy-of-kim-clement/

I supported Clement financially early in 2002 and remember hearing this prophecy in 2007. So, it is well documented. Most people can find it on line at the House of Destiny.com. The usual atheists don’t buy this but that is not new and should surprise no one.

What the Bible says about Trump/Cyrus?

Isaiah 45 Common English Bible (CEB)
Cyrus as God’s anointed
45 The Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus,
    whom I have grasped by the strong hand,
    to conquer nations before him,
    disarming kings,
    and opening doors before him,
    so no gates will be shut:
I myself will go before you,
    and I will level mountains.
I will shatter bronze doors;
    I will cut through iron
 bars.
I will give you hidden treasures of secret riches,
    so you will know that I am the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who calls you by name.
For the sake of my servant Jacob and Israel my chosen,
    I called you by name.
I gave you an honored title,
    though you didn’t know me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other;
    besides me there is no God.
I strengthen you—
    though you don’t know me—
so all will know, from the rising of the sun to its setting,
    that there is nothing apart from me.
I am the Lord; there’s no other.
    I form light and create darkness,
    make prosperity and create doom;
    I am the Lord, who does all these things.
Pour down, you heavens above,
    and let the clouds flow with righteousness.
Let the earth open for salvation to bear fruit;
    let righteousness sprout as well.
    I, the Lord, have created these things.

Notice: The point of this passage is that God takes responsibility for putting Donald Trump (Cyrus) in office. Is this a reincarnation of the Biblical Cyrus? Absolutely not. The Bible says that these men come in the “spirit of” a forerunner, as it does of Elijah and John the Baptist.

http://Luke 1:17 He will go forth before the Lord, equipped with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will turn the hearts of fathers back to their children, and he will turn the disobedient to righteous patterns of thinking. He will make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

Other writers have jumped on the topic as well.

https://www.amazon.com/Trump-King-Cyrus-American-Prayer/dp/1981549730/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=god%27s+chaos+candidate&qid=1567425961&s=gateway&sr=8-2

Why does Trump appear invincible

All attempts to discredit and remove Trump from office have failed. But no matter, his foes continue without a let-up. And his foes have faced embarrassment and shame in many cases. https://wouldyouconsider.net/2019/07/01/what-energizes-the-media-hate-machine/

Don’t expect it to stop. There is a lot of profit in sex trafficking, higher taxes, and the abortion industry and the promotion of illegals’ entry into the USA which keeps many agencies and NGOs afloat financially.

God is protecting his appointee

One of the major blessings of being a Christian is knowing that when you are in the center of God’s will, his appointed or anointed one, no matter whether for a great task or a small, you have his complete attention and protection. The various cadre of atheists and self-appointed experts in things-political can’t picture this because God and His will aren’t involved in their own daily decision making.

But the bottom line here is that in the end they will all be spinning their wheels if they continue on this negative course. Christians prayed that someone would turn America around and it is happening.

The voters prove it.

Why Denying the Faith is Not a Problem

This has been in the news recently and it is a healthy sign. https://www.charismanews.com/culture/54193-christian-rapper-renounces-his-faith-in-jesus-as-great-falling-away-continues

God did warn us about this. The Bible says the time will come when people will be divided into believers and unbelievers.

And not just individuals

The Democratic Party in America to widespread astonishment decided to separate itself from God. https://stream.org/democratic-party-resolution-against-christianity/?fbclid=IwAR3Co7nemJAqCPUB2br4XEX_pDM5X8wx8TrVF_8G7qDUfWg19oaYgE5gmoA

The fact that people are openly denying the faith is a sign that we are in the End Times when God will harvest the crop of his believers and separate them from the unbelievers. This is the relevant passage from Matthew 13 (Phillips translation, because he is so clear.)

Jesus again explains a parable to his disciples

36 Later, he left the crowds and went indoors, where his disciples came and said, “Please explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”

37-39 “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man,” replied Jesus. “The field is the whole world. The good seed? That is the sons of the kingdom, while the weeds are the sons of the evil one. The blackguard who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of this world. The reapers are angels.

40-43 “Just as weeds are gathered up and burned in the fire so will it happen at the end of this world. The Son of Man will send out his angels and they will uproot from the kingdom everything that is spoiling it, and all those who live in defiance of its laws, and will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be tears and bitter regret. Then the good will shine out like the sun in their Father’s kingdom.

Public Separation is the sign that we are nearing the end

Too many hangers-on in religion and politics have compromised the faith and sowed division in the churches with unbelievers and suspicious doctrines. It is possible to find any church anywhere espousing stuff the Bible either calls flawed or outright condemns. The sexual revolution is just one of these creeping lies about which believers seem blissfully ignorant.

The Bible warns many, many times about the dangers if marrying “foreign wives.” This is not about human marriage but a symbol of syncretism, http://syn·cre·tism /ˈsiNGkrəˌtizəm/ noun 1. the amalgamation or attempted amalgamation of different religions, cultures, or schools of thought: bastardization of the faith. This is not about doctrine. There is a wide gap between doctrine and faith and they should not be confused.

Defining Faith

On the positive side, faith is the whole of one’s personality resting on someone or something. It is the core of belief. People enter a church building with all kind of faith systems operating in their personalities. Faith in the government, or their parents, a school teacher or the policemen, or faith in a single doctrine, such as ‘communism is the best form of government.’ The doctrine does not need to be true to have many faithful followers.

What happens to individuals as they mature is they slough off faith that is thin or finds itself betrayed, and new forms of faith develop.

Faith in error

That can lead to all kinds of error. Street gangs find faith in each other, in their guns, their wars, and their territories. People can develop overwhelming faith in their mate or their job, until one of them fails or falls through entirely. That is why people who lose a job, or have a death in the family, or divorce, or the public exposure of a trusted public leader can bring people to despair. Faith challenged can be a personal crisis.

Faith is no flash in the pan

True faith is not in externals but in the work and person of Jesus Christ, as both God in the flesh and as our individual link to heaven and the afterlife as well as the promise of a life of joy and peace on earth. That is our goal as believers, faith as a process in our lives over the course of a lifetime.

What if the Rapture is way in the future?

The term rapture refers to a passage in the New Testament which says not all of us all will die normally, but some will be changed into our spiritual bodies and taken up to heaven. From The Message:

I Corinthians 15:51-57 But let me tell you something wonderful, a mystery I’ll probably never fully understand. We’re not all going to die—but we are all going to be changed. You hear a blast to end all blasts from a trumpet, and in the time that you look up and blink your eyes—it’s over. On signal from that trumpet from heaven, the dead will be up and out of their graves, beyond the reach of death, never to die again. At the same moment and in the same way, we’ll all be changed. In the resurrection scheme of things, this has to happen: everything perishable taken off the shelves and replaced by the imperishable, this mortal replaced by the immortal.There is no sure time frame for this in the New Testament so there are many different opinions about the date. But to hear a lot of modern preachers you’d think it could be tomorrow morning.

No time frame is given

Perhaps so. But that is not what is bothering me. I see folks using the rapture as a great escape. As in “I don’t need to worry about my creeping debt limit – at the rapture I leave all my bills behind.” Another version is “I am satisfied with what I am doing for God – maybe not much – but I don’t fear the future as I’ll be raptured.”

But if this miraculous escape doesn’t happen …. then the bills and the problems are still there, right? This is not life fulfilling, but life avoidance.

Obedience is not Avoidance

Jesus did not tell us to sit around on our assumptions but to get to work on His Kingdom: make disciples of all nations, preach the word, heal the sick, cast out demons, and even raise the dead, worship, praise, comfort, visit prisoners, and care for parents. Honor – that’s a reference to money – your parents and pray for your leadership. The Rapture theory gives some an excuse for not fulfilling their responsibilities from everything to not voting to not going to church.

Not one word from God about being “at ease” or waiting it out.

Buddhism is about waiting it out

What bothers me about all this is – not just that the scripture does not tell us specifically when this will be – but that it is a reflection of Buddhist teaching.

Buddhism is not really a religion although it is treated as such; it is a way of life. It focuses on gaining peace in the inner man. Buddhists are societal drop outs for the most part. They avoid conflict, stay to themselves, devote time to multiple prayers, fasting and staying away from trouble. It gives me great joy to see the Dalai Lama (Chief Buddhist Priest) in this world never backing down to the Chinese about stealing Tibet. Good. It is a proactive work for a non-proactive group.

The Communist Chinese government attacked Buddhism originally as a religion. In the past few years they changed their minds and encouraged it because Buddhists go along with the communist dictatorship.

Evil is challenged, not endured

But Jesus always put us in the position for challenging evil wherever we found it. Have you seen any Christians turning over money-changing tables recently? a metaphor for dealing with the corrupt monetary system. Well a few do.

It is infecting American society at a time when elitism and entitlements are defining who we are. Jesus Himself did not take the easy way out. And we are called to be and do in this world as He was. “As my father has sent me, so send I you.”

More than anything else, Christians are “sent” people, into society, the world, and the dark places to bring light.

God’s Judgment upon Nations – and why

This is a topic about which few people write. But the Bible is clear; in addition to individual judgment, nations will be called to account. Does this happen after the end of time, during time, or some other time? Perhaps all three.

Let’s look at the map. China is the largest single nation in terms of population on the face of the earth. It is rife with poverty and lack of rain. In spite of the fact that China has been a distinct national group she has been a land of war for the better part of 4,000 years. All their pride in longevity does not erase the the reality of failure in so many ways. But look at what China did.

China swiped two nations, Mongolia, which is about the same age as China, and Tibet. That happened around 70 years ago and the wounds and anger have not subsided. You can be sure when things do not improve God’s word has been violated in some way. Here is the scripture.

Acts 17:26 And He has made from one blood[a] every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,

The Greek word in this passage is “ethnos” meaning an ethnic group of some kind, usually based on language.

God says nations must not grab and from others

In other words, keep your hands off another nation, their people and their land mass. Period. Because China was weakened by civil war, the Japanese got their hooks into China in the 1930s perpetrating great evil on the Chinese people – and look what happened to Japan at the end of World War II.

Germany got greedy and took Austria, Poland, Italy and France, headed towards England, Spain, Russia and the rest of the Slavic nations. Look at what happened. Germany was basically destroyed. Only the work ethic of Germans brought it back, and Germany did apologize for its anti-Semitic behavior finally.

A public apology helps

Japan has not apologized, and she continues to move 3 steps forward and 2 back decade after decade. Not only has Japan not apologized for its wickedness (think of the Rape of Nanjing 1937) http://www.historyplace.com/worldhistory/genocide/nanking.htm

but Japan is now romancing Mongolia because she wants land and Mongolia is the largest land-locked nation on the globe. The Mongolians have reason to be angry at China and they might just welcome Japan. The Chinese have reason to be nervous once more.

Evil leaders mean trouble

Then there is North Korea, a dying nation with reports of cannibalism. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2013/02/05/the-cannibals-of-north-korea/

China created this false barrier against the Japanese and the Americans, and North Korea has been a threat, much of that hot air, ever since. North Korea needs to return to its natural language fold – and will according to many modern prophets. [see KimClement.com]

Is anyone more miserable than the Muslims? See the constant wars in the Middle East. The Islamic religion (Koran) says that Islam will take over the whole world, or death to non-believers, called “infidels” a simple, direct theology which is creeping into every nation. But their losses continue. They kill at random, esp. women and children. Allah is descended from the ancient god of war. https://www1.cbn.com/churchandministry/1400-years-of-christian-islamic-struggle

How can a group survive if they kill off both the next generation and the women who will produce children? Don’t try to answer that one. Death is not a solution to the world’s problems. God says He wants life,

and life more abundantly. John 10:10

God’s plan is not abortion but life. Islam is going the exact opposite way from God.

The Middle East is a giant mess, politically and economically. When Egypt agreed to be at peace with Israel all was well. Now, no more. Egypt ended its provision of oil to Israel and the bottom dropped out of their own oil supply while Israel found 100 years of oil under their land. We say in Texas – Don’t mess with Texas. In Israel they say Don’t mess with Israel.

In fact there is a scripture for that.

Genesis 12:3 – (paraphrased) If you bless God’s people, He will bless you. If you curse God’s people God will curse you.

I’m not saying this because I am a Christian and an American – but because I have read the Word and I know what it says. More importantly, I know God means it and He won’t change His mind. Period.

You are not convinced? Look at Africa’s 200 years of constant wars. The Muslims in Sudan fought for South Sudan with much killing and terror. But South Sudan was able to separate itself as an individual nation in 2012 and is very prosperous. Now North Sudan is separate and living in poverty. That is what war does. It brings poverty and poverty is another sign of God’s displeasure.

So God continues to judge those nations which out of order and not working for the good of their own people and that of other nations.

Explaining the Trinity

We say in church “God in three persons blessed Trinity.” Unfortunately this in no way explains the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The reference comes from the Latin Vulgate translated by Jerome in common use for many years in the Roman Catholic Church. Vulgate refers to the common language of the ordinary Italian at the time. 

In that Bible the Godhead is referred to a “personna” meaning person. However, the original New Testament was written in Greek (with a little Aramaic) and the word to describe the God head is “homousias” meaning “the same essence.” While this term is hard to define, personna makes it worse.

What is an Essence

Consider this. You step into an elevator and there is a pleasant fragrance. You surmise that some woman has been in the elevator and leftover is her perfume. You think, “That might be vanilla!” The woman is no longer there but the fragrance lingers on.

Later you arrive at your appointment and voila! You smell that same scent. But this time the receptionist is that woman. It is distinctive now on her. There is no mistake about it. It identifies her.

So it is with God – not three different gods which personna suggests but the exact same essence or scent.

In 325 C.E. the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church in Rome at the Council of Nicea determined that indeed God the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit were all the same essence, unique to them but yet all the same.

So let us apply this to our understanding – God, Jesus and Holy Spirit are all “ousias” essence, and “homousias” = the same essence.

The 2nd Coming of Jesus

When Jesus returns at the 2nd Coming it is called the “para-ousias” a combination of ‘besides’ and ‘essence.’ The “ousias” or essence of Jesus will be with or beside us. Perhaps only those who know him originally will recognize His scent when he comes?

Like the woman’s perfume in the elevator we recognize immediately – OH – I remember that from before and now recognize Jesus again now that He is here.

For others it may be the smell of death.

2 Corinthians:2: 14-16 In the Messiah, in Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade. Through us, he brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation—an aroma redolent with life. But those on the way to destruction treat us more like the stench from a rotting corpse.

Isn’t it interesting that Paul, writing this book, would refer to fragrance Here? A Greek-speaker as he was would know ‘ousias’ as fragrance; Jewish believers would not know this word.

The smell of Death

The same idea is repeated in our references to the devil, the snake, who seeks us out. Snakes have poor eyesight but a keen sense of smell.  I wonder, does that snake smell the death on us, and then attack?

When Jesus comes back many people may not be able to smell the fragrance of the Almighty.

The Reluctant Prophet

This blog is largely prophecy, προφητεια in Greek. Prophets tell us what God speaks today, what He said in the past and possibly His view of the future.  Prophets can do this because God is in eternity and not constrained by time.

We apply His words to all of family life, politics, education, religion, business, Media, international affairs and the always fractious culture of arts and entertainment. Even the most irreligious nation lives in and promotes a moral world, or a substitute.

The Holy Bible is the only book God claims to have written.  When your life is in shambles, or even if you are just a person who wants a view into reality and the future, understanding the Bible and reading it are the place to be.  Welcome.  That is what we talk about here.

Sexual Perversion signals the Last Judgment

In other words – It is right now! (Warning -Xrated information)

The classic argument for the Rapture of the Church (2 Thessolonians 2) is the presumption that the Holy Spirit will be taken from the world, hence the believers, and this exposes evil in all men who are left.

This is a misreading of the plain scripture

The Holy Spirit is merely allowing the public to see the evil rampant for what it is in all its ugliness. It does not say the church believers are gone. In fact we are watching this plainly right now. https://stream.org/theres-nothing-wrong-with-9-year-old-drag-queens-if-theres-nothing-wrong-with-sodomy/
