I have been doing vitamin D3

I have been doing vitamin D3 for years on my dermatologists' request.

Follow the money trail and don't think they want to give us a cure, but planned obsolesce so they can continue to sell us their dangerous and ineffective products. Not only are the shots ineffective but dangerous on their own.

I have only had several flue shots in the last 20-30 years.

A Tribute to Allan!

   I often stayed in three different homes when in RSA.  Oh the great meetings, the fellowship and the work upon the Fields which are white unto harvest.  One of those homes was with Allan.  He received many article written upon these forums and was a great blessing and encouragement. 

  There are times when even the best plans, the best lifestyles, the best eating habits and even the best retirement plans, do not see that which is approaching from behind.     Allan was inspection a stretch of railroad, having left his hearing aid at home, and the train sent him on his way and I will miss him.      Jim

Hello All

Soooo so so sorry for the long absence and then tonight’s brief drive by here at TOF, saw 25 + new posts but just passed by them and will catch up when I can. We launched an industry disruptive technology we have been working on the past year and just crushed it the past two weeks. Hopefully now I will have more time to post going forward, Lord willing. Thx Jim for carry the water alone, you’re a true servant.

What is said here at ToF, for some that wander in, may carry more eternal weight than the whole world combined, including my little project. wink

Saw "The Greatest Showman” with my wife, son and daughter in law while Granma 2 watched our six week old grandson two weeks ago and thought of many that post here when I heard this song below.

Highly recommend the movie – BTW.

One song struck me like a lightning bolt, it is called  – Come Alive.

It is the call of the Gospel of God in Jesus Christ, in a nut shell without any “Deep Theological arguments”. Again it is called Come Alive. After all, naturally, we are all dead men walking, No?

This is for all those that are already “Dreaming with their Eyes Wide Open” and in the Eternal Kingdom, and also for those that still need to repent of 'sin and self ' and answer the call and come alive in Christ Jesus. Please read the lyrics as you listen to this, it just rocks, and is the essence of the Gospel in a simple song, trust me on this.

Yet………

At times this world just sucks, it does, it is not without its many, many heartaches as a result of the fall and our own personal sin, but yet this song speaks to believers of the real future in the next world, the one that really matters……… all because of the Cross.

Yet…………..  it spills back over into current world for those in Christ.

He loves us that much.

Trust me on this. Enjoy !!!

Dreaming with eyes wide open yet ?

Come Alive

You stumble through your days

Got your head hung low

Your skies' a shade of grey

Like a zombie in a maze

You're asleep inside

But you can shake away

'Cause you're just a dead man walking

Thinking that's your only option

But you can flip the switch and brighten up your darkest day

Sun is up and the color's blinding

Take the world and redefine it

Leave behind your narrow mind

You'll never be the same

Come alive, come alive

Go and ride your light

Let it burn so bright

Reaching up

To the sky

And it's open wide

You're electrified

When the world becomes a fantasy

And you're more than you could ever be

'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open

And you know you can't go back again

To the world that you were living in

'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open

So, come alive!

I see it in your eyes

You believe that lie

That you need to hide your face

Afraid to step outside

So you lock the door

But don't you stay that way

No more living in those shadows

You and me we know how that goes

'Cause once you see it, oh you'll never, never be the same

We'll be the light that's shining

Bottle up and keep on trying

You can prove there's more to you

You cannot be afraid

Come alive, come alive

Go and ride your light

Let it burn so bright

Reaching up

To the sky

And it's open wide

You're electrified

When the world becomes a fantasy

And you're more than you could ever be

'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open

And we know we can't be go back again

To the world that we were living in

'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

So, come alive!

Come one!

Come all!

Come in!

Come on!

To anyone who's bursting with a dream

Come one!

Come all!

You hear

The call

To anyone who's searching for a way to break free

Break free!

Break free!

When the world becomes a fantasy

And you're more than you could ever be

'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open

And we know we can't be go back again

To the world that we were living in

'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

(Hey!)

When the world becomes a fantasy

And you're more than you could ever be

'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open

And we know we can't be go back again

To the world that we were living in

'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

So come alive! (Come alive!) (Yeah!)

@ All

For any that want scripture to back up that last post, here it is....

"For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God." Ezekile 36: 24-28

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." II Cor 5:17.

This is a passage of rebirth in Christ, coming alive........

Yet

Oooops... their is that land issue again, perhaps I should have posted this in Zionism.

Unlike us, the Lord does not break promises, they may be delayed, but He does not break them.

Great posts Jim above, that is the strong delusion of II Thess 2, imho, yet coming, they  will be allowed to come back.We all best get ready. They are coming and will be allowed to return.

It's coming, the 'church', the final firewall against this all, does not even see this coming. Yet you do? wink as do others, Why is that????

I already know the answer to that question.....

Ordered a small stuffed skunk, thanks. hurting here, torn between two worlds at present, I wish I would have never asked certain questions of the Lord.

Ignorance is bliss right?

Jer. Jr., torn between two worlds"!

  The real problem exists when the believers are "torn between two worlds". When Jesus said "will I find any Faith when I return", was a statement of our present condition. How will the Luke warm believers deal with the present demonic and the future releasing of those within the pit?   Will we be able to function as those early believers, in the Book of Acts, or will we be beaten  and flee like the sons Sceva ? 

14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.   (acts 19)

There are people who declare their inner possession of the demonic, placing their warped views of the world, doubly dead within, without love or compassion, easily angered, attackers of any who see the Truth, displaying the false power of their demon spirits.  I have seen these for decades and just One Word from a Spirit filled Believer will bind these evil ones, and cast them into another dimension, never to return. Oh how frightened they become when the are challenged by the True Church.

The key to coming out of the "world" is always repentance.  Jer. Jr., what is your favorite ice cream?    I love Rocky Road.  Linda picks a different flavor every time. However, we have given up on the many sugars of sickness these days.  It is like this for believers.  What flavor of Christianity will we choose on Sunday morning. Most want a comfortable chair, someone serving them from up front, behind the rail, dressed in the company costume, and all I need to do is pay the bill before I leave the building.   Always just a viewer, never fulfilling their callings in Christ Jesus our Lord.  The gifts and callings, buried under the tent (building), and never coming to the knowledge of the Truth.  Separation from the anti-christ, blind prophets of fallen men, is just the first step in spiritual health. 

 Life in the Spirit is Not Like A Trade School Education!     If we start a classroom setting for learning how to build homes, charging the students "X" per week, studying the codes and methods, finance, lot purchases, and even what a box of "sinkers" is used for and never, ever, come to the point of graduation, then we are just unskilled students.   Give me the person, ready to work in the field, sleeves rolled up, gloves on, and diving into the wet concrete, in the flow of the Work.  Our steeple houses are packed with multiple unskilled workers, divided in their views, not even considering the "field which is white unto harvest".   There is going to be much weeping in the future and the warnings of Enoch and the the True Church, will be seen in  hind sight.    jmo      Jim

Thx Jim

Needed that, great, great post.

"The key to coming out of the "world" is always repentance.  Jer. Jr., what is your favorite ice cream?    I love Rocky Road."

lol, I know that Jim, I do. repentance........

Regarding  the ice cream, I would have to say vanilla, simple guy here, repentance is always the key. It is good to have a broken heart.

Ps 34:18, Psalm 51, Isaiah 51. Isaiah 56

Respectfully, they (the world) may act like it at times but, The organized 'church' is not really our enemy, he, our real enemy, is much bigger than that.

@Jer. Jr.

You stated: 

The organized 'church' is not really our enemy, he, our real enemy, is much bigger than that.

Well, one could not disagree with that.  I would however, expand the statement, running it through my filter system and say something like:

The detoured, man made organized systems, having departed from the new testament instructions, given to the Church, the people not being the enemy, have allowed the spirit of antichrist to invade every possible location upon the map.  The people, believing the man made clergy, have been neutralized, selling their gifts and callings for a spot on the pew, while the white field lacks laborers, and the Voice of the Spirit still shouts: "Come out from among them oh My People"!   We see the effects of those who "came out of the systems" over the last 1700 years.  Outcasts from the systems and paid the full price, those of whom the world was not worthy.   jmo    Jim     (Thanks JJ)

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Eph. 4)

How long must one learn?

2 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV)

3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes, always learning from tapes, books, sermons, t.v. preachers, etc..   One must finally ask: "How long can one wait before they enter into the Lord's Field?      Jim

We need thousands like Peter Whyte!

The Church of the Kingdom (by Peter Whyte)

Published February 28, 2015 | By Peter Whyte

NOTE: The following article is taken from Chapter 17 of Peter Whyte’s book “The King and His Kingdom”, written in 1979.

Jesus said, “I will build My Church and the gates of Hades will not overpower it” (Matt. 16:18).

The gates of a city in Bible days were the seat of authority. The elders and rulers of the city sat in the gates, and the people came there to hear the reading of the law. The judges gave out judgments and the king’s place of audience was in the gates.

The word Hades means “not to be seen.”

The term “the gates of Hades” therefore denotes the rulers, the powers of the “not to be seen;” the spiritual powers of darkness.

Jesus was saying, “I will build My people that I have called out (My Church), and the ruling powers of the kingdom of darkness from the unseen realm (the gates of Hades) will not overpower them.”

The Church of the Kingdom is not designed or built by man.

Men are the material (the lively stones) out of which King Jesus builds His Church. It consists of people who have responded to the Gospel and have been called out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Christ.

God delivers us from the reign of Satan and transfers us into the reign of His beloved Son, King Jesus (Col 1:13).

Jesus identifies the children of God as “sons of the Kingdom,” never as “sons of the Church.”

Jesus uses the word “church” to collectively identify the sons of the Kingdom, who are the people who live under His reign.

Judaism and heathen religions teach that there must be sanctified places, temples, and buildings where men can meet for divine worship.

In the Kingdom of God the temple of God is a spiritual building made of living persons, who are those He has called out Collectively these people are identified as His Church or as the Body of Christ.

These people can meet anywhere.

The Church of the Kingdom has no consecrated places, holy sanctuaries or buildings, which ignorant men call “the House of the Lord.” The people are the House of the Lord.

The Church of the Kingdom makes use of any building that suits its needs.

It can meet anywhere at any time.

It only takes two or three to assemble together, and the Church of the Kingdom is meeting with, the King in their midst.

They worship God in spirit and in truth (see John 4:19-24). Whenever the people of this Church meet, THEY SANCTIFY THE PLACE BY THEIR PRESENCE.

They are the temple of God.

God is inside them and they carry Him and the Kingdom of Heaven with them wherever they go. They cannot go anywhere “to meet with God” because they never leave His presence. He lives inside them.

There is one Church that Jesus is building, and Scripture identifies it only by locality. He has only one Church, and all the believers living in one place are called the Church in that place.

All His people in Rome or Corinth or Ephesus are identified as “the Church at Rome,” or “the Church at Corinth” or “the Church at Ephesus.”

All His people in your city should be identified only by me name of your city, or by the names of suburbs or areas if its size is very large.

Nevertheless, these are all ONE AND THE SAME CHURCH.

If you live in London, you are a member of the Church in London. If you live at Earls Court you would, for practical purposes, be further identified as a member of the Church at Earls Court in London.

If you leave London and go to live in Los Angeles, you will then be a member of the Church in Los Angeles.

You are still in the same Church, simply living in another local expression of the one Body.

Every Christian who is identified by any other name, denomination or otherwise, except the name of his locality, is committing spiritual adultery and is living in deception.

He is living like the Jews of the captivity in Babylon and must leave there if he wishes to dwell in the New Jerusalem.

Since Jesus lives in the Church of the Kingdom, He calls it His Body.

The sons of the Kingdom are members of His Body and they…

  • have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living Godthe heavenly Jerusalemand to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven, and to God the Judge of alland to the spirits of righteous men made perfectand to Jesus, the mediator of A NEW COVENANT… (Heb. 12:22-24)

The Church of the Kingdom is the City of God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and the throne of God and the Lamb are in it.

Within it flows a spiritual river of life, and in it also is the tree of life which produces fruit every month, and its leaves are for the healing of the nations.

@ Jim

I realize our enemy masks himself even in clerical garb, I do, steeple houses right?, talked with so many of them I'm tired, probably that is his greatest work in deceiving the multitudes, thanks for you comments.

You Jim, are a very wise man, schooled in the ways of the Lord, for those reading in here, listen closely, NW is giving you pearls.

Boxing Ring?

Thanks for your encouragement Jer. Jr.!    Our spiritual lives seem to be like a boxing ring.  One can stand at the ropes, watch the action, cheer the heavy hitters, and be thankful that we do not have the gloves on.  However, in the Church, the called out people, we must enter into the ministry that the Spirit has called us to work.   We cannot just stand in the outer ring, seated in the stands, for cheering is not enough.  The Apostle Paul saw the ring:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

(1 Cor. 9)

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes he wanted to be a "partaker thereof with you". Yes all may run or view but only one receives the prize. He made sure his punches were not just "beating the air". We must do likewise, entering into Eph. 4:11-13 and not be found knocked out, outside the ring.   I have been knocked out, many times, within the ring of Christian believers, and more is coming. 

When we sit in the locker room, getting ready for another fight, being invited to enter into the steeple house, knowing a battle is truly coming, praying for the "Word of the Lord", the battle begins.   On the way to the raised platform, that small Inner Voice gives instruction, a Word, a Revelation, and our prayer is:  "Lord Jesus, I heard your instruction within, You know this will be trouble, must I say these things?"    All is silent as we face the enemy and the blinded brethren, as we must stand in the gap for the Church.  This is the Way of Life, this is part of the call of the last days, no hidden agenda but Christ.     Jim

Do we remember John G. Lake? 1870-1935

"Men have mystified the gospel; they have philosophized the gospel.   The gospel of Jesus is as simple as can be. As God lived in the Body and operated through the Man Jesus, so the Man on the throne, Jesus, operates through His Body, the Church, in the world. Even as Jesus Himself was the representative of God the Father, so also the Church is the representative of Christ. As Jesus yielded Himself unto all righteousness, so the Church should yield herself to do all the will of Christ.

These signs shall follow them that believe (Mark 16:17).  The miraculous signs and wonders that point the world to Jesus Christ follow not just the preacher, or the elder, or the priest, but the believer. The believer shall speak in new tongues.  The believer shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. Believers are the Body of Christ in the world. The Word says that there shall be saviors in Zion (Obad.21).

Just as Jesus, the Savior, took us, the Church, lifting us up to the Father, and giving Himself to sanctify and cleanse us, so the Christian takes the world and lifts it up to Christ.

The wonderful simplicity of the gospel of Jesus is itself a marvel. The wonder is that men have not always understood the whole process of salvation. How was it that men mystified it?  Why is it that we have not lived a better life? Because our eyes were dim, and we did not see, and we did not realize that God left us here in this world to demonstrate Him, even as the Father left Jesus in the world to demonstrate the Father."    (John G. Lake devotional; P. 15-16)

The Stars will Fall!

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?    (Rev. 6)

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes, it is written " hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;" and there  will be little room within these dens, as millions will finally realize that they have been entrapped, believing a lie, set up by false religions, false teachers, and a multitude of those who think they have the insight to the truth.  Blind guides.
