Certainty

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Jesus prayer

I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

Habakkuk 's complaint against God

The prophecy that Habakkuk the prophet received

How long, Lord, must I call for help,
but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!”
but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?
Destruction and violence are before me;
there is strife, and conflict abounds.
Therefore the law is paralyzed,
and justice never prevails.
The wicked hem in the righteous,
so that justice is perverted.

God's response to his accusation

Look at the nations and watch—
and be utterly amazed.
For I am going to do something in your days
that you would not believe,
even if you were told.
I am raising up the Babylonians,
that ruthless and impetuous people,
who sweep across the whole earth
to seize dwellings not their own.
They are a feared and dreaded people;
they are a law to themselves
and promote their own honor.
Their horses are swifter than leopards,
fiercer than wolves at dusk.
Their cavalry gallops headlong;
their horsemen come from afar.
They fly like an eagle swooping to devour;
they all come intent on violence.
Their hordes advance like a desert wind
and gather prisoners like sand.
They mock kings
and scoff at rulers.
They laugh at all fortified cities;
by building earthen ramps they capture them.
Then they sweep past like the wind and go on—
guilty people, whose own strength is their god.”

God's response...be utterly amazed, because I am raising up a nation to destroy you, and carry you away in chains...but it's not the end of the story.

Many prophets out there in these days.

I posted a video on post number 2337 on this forum, not long ago. The man wants to operate as a prophet. He said the Lord told him that California will have a 10 point earthquake by the 23rd. of Sept. Well, that has past, today being the 26th. I noted that he has his own site:

https://www.amidnightcry.com/copy-of-home

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

He has some good things to say and a bucket full of speculations. He should come forth, if he has not, and say that he did not hear from the Lord but from self. It is a dangerous position to be in, becoming a "false prophet". He should just keep still and preach Jesus and His Kingdom. Date setting is dangerous and is a fast way to expose our folly. When we say "God told me this" and it does not happen, we become a false witness.

I have no dates, not even sure if we are in the tribulation times or not, but the writing is upon the nations and judgment is coming. jmo Jim

The Editors’ Quote of the Day

The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

0

“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.

Hell and destruction are before the Lord: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?

A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith.

Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.

The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain.

A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.

Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.

Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.

A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!

The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.

The Lord will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.

The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.

He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.

The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.

He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.

The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.” – Proverbs 15 (KJV)

Schwenckfeld (1489-1561) The priesthood of all believers!

“It is clear and evident" he says further, “that all Christians are called and sent to praise their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to publish His virtues who has called them from darkness to His wonderful light, and to confess His Name before men." Any restriction of the universal priesthood of all believers is a limitation of the Holy Spirit. “If in the time of Paul they had acted thus, and only those appointed by the magistrate had been allowed to preach, how far would the Christian faith have reached? How would the Gospel have reached to our times?" Some are chosen from among the believers to special service, and are fitted for and separated to their office, not by study, election, or ordination, but by the thrust, revelation and manifestation of the Spirit, “that Christ is with them being shown in grace, power, life and blessing." Since their “calling and sending is solely from God, in the grace of Christ, they act with power and with great assurance in the Holy Spirit, souls are born again, hearts are renewed, the kingdom of Christ is built up." “The believers can never be tired of such apostolic, spiritual preachers, nor hear them enough, for they find with them the power of God and food for their souls; it is of such that the Lord Christ said, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth Me’ (John 13. 20). No unconverted person or one of unholy conduct can be a right minister for the increase of the church, even though he might be Doctor and Professor, know the Bible off by heart, and be a great orator." When “some say that the person and the office are separate, so that even if a bishop, priest or preacher should be an evil man, yet he can occupy a good office, the office of a teacher of the New Testament, and can be a servant of the Holy Spirit, this is against all Scripture and against the ordinance of Christ." “What sort of ministry is that, where the teacher is himself untaught in his heart ... and does not believe what he teaches, that is, does not himself do or act what he says, whereas, in the right ministry of the New Covenant, according to the instruction of all Apostolic Scriptures and the example of the Lord Christ Himself, these two must always go together." The Pilgrim Church .Broadbent P. 215

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

Yes the Church is made up of the priesthood of all believers, as it is written. There is not a clergy class, except in the divided detoured systems of blinded assemblies and within the former old blood covenant. When we say we have not attended bible college and we are a layman, we have been overcome instead of being overcomers. Jim

5780, Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana today, & a word from Randy!

RED OCTOBER-BY RANDY CONWAY

A Red October will not be limited to the color of the sky
A Red October will be a time when the mettle of men is tried
A Red October will be remembered for the flood of tears that were cried
A Red October will not be remembered for Tricks or Treats or pumpkin spice.

A season of blood and a climate of trouble lie at the threshold of tomorrow
Time is in God’s hands, but I believe the time left is only borrowed.
Will men be delivered to trouble, to astonishment and to hissing
Because all warnings and scripture for too long we have been dismissing?

The time is now upon us that we must stand and dress for battle;
We have been warned, we have been commanded to come out of Babel.
Those whose names are in the Book of Life–you’re here for such a time as this.
Beyond human comprehension are those who are coming from the abyss.

The demonic parasitic forces are at work engineering this world’s conflicts;
Satan, the king of the world, waits under the ice to ready his plan to inflict.
Sadly there are churches embracing evil, practicing every kind of paganism,
And so it is that men have become a part of the enmity–a very ancient schism.

Who will be wearing red shoes this coming Halloween?
Perhaps followers of the ancient gods, those worshippers of Athene.
Will there be spirit cooking and soul cakes this all hallows eve?
Red October will be a time when for missing children mother’s grieve.

Do you know your identity? Do you know who you really are?
Choices will be presented and loyalties made sure; that time is not afar.
Did not Bush Sr. give away the plans for a neutron bomb?
I don’t know about you, but knowing who has it gives me qualms.

There have been signs in the sky but sadly they have been scoffed.
There is one who saw an ominous giant blackbird–it is now aloft.
Written on its wings is “Power has been given unto me”;
“I want to make war” is also written on its beak.
Higher entities will be welcomed by those who don’t know their own creator
And those they welcome will reveal themselves as our terminators.
Those who serve the darkness do not originate from this planet
And they are more than ready to take advantage of the fool’s enchantment.
Let those with ears hear and understand;
May the Ecclesia prepare to make a stand.
Live in, not put on, the whole armor of God
Be not deceived this world is ruled by fraud.
What will happen in a Red October I can’t really say;
It was a bloody Revolution which coined this phrase.
Prophecy is rapidly unfolding before our very eyes
And every day another perverted evil by society is normalized.

To find the truth turn off the agenda driven falsehoods pretending to be news.
You will gain nothing by ignoring God and eternally everything that you will lose.
“Heaven and earth will surely pass away”, in the Word it is so inscribed,
But God’s “Word endures forever”; it is living and will never die.

There will be great tribulation; such has never been seen before.
History has no record or any reference to describe the coming horror.
The winds of war blow as a gale and unrest is creeping under every door
And men entrenched in a strong delusion will not abandon Babylon’s whore.

“Come out of her my people and be not partakers of her sins”;
You will find this command to be essential when the plagues begin.
An earthquake is coming that will cause even the remnant to be afraid;
Now is the time for us to repent and this very moment is the time to pray.

“The righteous cry, and the Lord hears and delivers them from trouble”;
Those who rise up against the Most High God will be reduced to stubble.
It is now a most critical time that all men know their true identity
To belong to the only One who HAS ALWAYS and WILL ALWAYS hold true SUPREMACY.
“Thou art my rock and my fortress; for thy name’s sake guide me,”
“My times are in Thy hand: deliver me from mine enemy.”
Let the lying lips be put even now into silence;
As a “Warrior Class of Christian” I will not bow to compliance.
A Red October could in fact be coming now upon us.
A Red October when into a new normal we will be thrust.
A Red October when spells are cast and children sacrificed.
A Red October when war could define a new zeitgeist.

A Red October will not just describe the color of the autumn sky;
A Red October will determine with whom you are allied.
A Red October that calls us to uphold His righteousness;
A Red October when there is no more time for idleness.
The converging of crowns is coming at a frightening rate–
The economic crown and the secret London banksters will see their fate;
The military crown and the subverting DC minions will be revealed as fakes;
The religious crown is coming down and the Vatican City’s evil potentate.

Much must transpire before we see the end
But a Red October could be where it begins.
One day the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our Lord
And He shall rule them with a rod of iron and the world will feel His sword.
by randy conway
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” Rev. 6:8

Scriptures used or paraphrased in these verses:

Yes, I know, there are millions of steeple house believers, who will be dressing up their kids for the demonic holiday, taking their pictures in their demonic dress. I have even seen the orange demon houses on the front porches this season. It is easy for the demons to find the homes and children in costume, a welcoming invitation to possess. There will be great weeping, in the coming era, as the believers find out that they have been overcome by the craft of Satan. It is little wonder why this nation is in the state of ruin, just like the divided systems of Luke warm believers. Jim

Sierra Skier;

Your short quote reminds me of one that I heard about 40 years ago. I was at a FGBMFI men's camp with over 1000 steeple house believers. The speaker, came to the podium, gazed at us in silence. The place became silent. Then he said something like: "You men do not have enough power, in your lives, to cast a demon out of a pet squirrel. "

I knew what he was saying.>>> Good people, stuck upon their pews, attending their meetings, joining their divided systems of men, paying their tithes, thinking they are laymen, departing from the instructions given to the early Church and useless when confronting the demonic. HE WAS CORRECT AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED! Jim

(In the coming era, the believers will finally realize that they are not prepared to deal with the demons before them)

I thought You Would Appreciate the Quote

Even though I have nowhere the background you do, I fear little. I have lived primarily a good clean life and had the Lord our God inside since my church lobby experience. If I was to pass today I would be comfortable within myself knowing my beliefs are sound.

I have had missteps in life but by far have lived by the commandments from our Lord. Not perfect, but human.

Spurgeon on faith

Grace is the first and last moving cause of salvation and faith, important as it is, is only an important part of the machinery which grace employs. We are saved “through faith,” but it is “by grace.” Sound forth those words as with the archangel’s trumpet—“By grace are you saved!” Faith occupies the position of a channel or conduit. Grace is the fountain and the stream—faith is the aqueduct along which the flood of mercy flows down to refresh the thirsty sons of men. It is a great pity when the aqueduct is broken. It is a sad sight to see, around Rome, the many noble aq- ueducts which no longer convey water into the city because the arches are broken and the marvel- ous structures are in ruins. The aqueduct must be kept in tact to convey the current and, even so, faith must be true and sound, leading right up to God and coming right down to ourselves, that it may become a serviceable channel of mercy to our souls. Still, I again remind you that faith is the channel or aqueduct and not the fountainhead. We must not look so much to faith as to exalt it above the divine source of all blessings which lie in the grace of God. Never make a Christ out of your faith, nor think of it as if it were the independent source of your salvation. Our life is found in “looking unto Jesus,” not in looking to our own faith. By faith all things become possible to us, yet the power is not in the faith, but in the God upon whom faith relies.
Grace is the locomotive and faith is the chain by which the carriage of the soul is attached to the great motive power. The righteousness of faith is not the moral excellence of faith, but the righteousness of Jesus Christ which faith grasps and appropriates. The peace within the soul is not derived from the contemplation of our own faith—it comes to us from Him who is our peace, the hem of whose garment faith touches—and virtue comes out of Him into the soul. However, it is a very important thing that we look well to the channel and, therefore, at this time we will consider it, as God, the Holy Spirit, shall enable us. Faith; what is it? Faith; why is it selected as the chan- nel of blessing? Faith; how can it be obtained and increased?

Seeing beyond the eyes and ears:

Isaiah 11:1-4 King James Version (KJV)

11 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

2 And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;

3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

More than quoting a scripture.

There are times when I meet someone new. The subject of faith or religion usually comes around in time. You know they always ask you: "Where do you go to church"? As soon as you answer, you create division. If you are not within their divided blinded system, then fellowship is over.

It does little good for me to tell them that I do not go to a steeple house division on Sunday mornings, nor does it do any good to say that we are not submitted to any local pastor with a turned around collar. They will really think you are unsaved. (They actually believe that the Church age has a clergy class, to their shame)

I just look them in their eyes and say: "Listen to what I have for an answer". (That gets their attention.) Then I say: "I am crucified with Christ, never the less I live, yet not I but CHRIST LIVES WITHIN ME, and the life that I now live in this flesh (placing my hands upon my chest), I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loves me and gave Himself up for me"!

For it is written, for the Church age:

......

Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

They only wanted to know what division I had joined but I want them to receive the Revelation of the Son of God and hope they will also receive Him. Jim
