"That deception is where the real war is at." Amen and Amen to that.
I hear you loud and clear, don't lose heart and don't give up, it is worth it if you can reach even one in the category of people you described in your post. The night approaches when no man can worketh.
Keep looking up!
I knew a man, long ago, who was at a camp in Texas. A total stranger/messenger came to him while he was in his hotel room. He stated that the Lord had a message for him.
The messenger said that the Lord had revealed the messages of the end times to him and that he did see the false teachings of the faith/prosperity anti-kingdom movement. He said you have closed off these believers from getting the help that they will need in the end. He stated that this is part of the man's calling and work and that he had closed off the very ministry that was set before him and that he must repent.
The man felt the conviction when he heard the Truth and was changed forever. Amen
This early morning many hundreds of us met for prayer as our congregation does every month. We pray for mercy for our nation, repentance, and that Godly leaders would emerge and be protected, that we might have a bit more time for more souls to know Him. It was a sweet time of the petitions of the saints.
We never know who Jesus will draw unto Himself and when, we only pray for wisdom and opportunity. Dr P, take heart. God uses even this little metals site as a vehicle for His glory. Keep doing what you're doing. His Word is faithful and true.
Good word of encouragement, we never know who how or when God will reveal himself, His Word never returns void!!
27 On the fourteenth night we were still being driven across the Adriatic[a] Sea, when about midnight the sailors sensed they were approaching land. 28 They took soundings and found that the water was a hundred and twenty feet[b] deep. A short time later they took soundings again and found it was ninety feet[c] deep. 29 Fearing that we would be dashed against the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern and prayed for daylight. 30 In an attempt to escape from the ship, the sailors let the lifeboat down into the sea, pretending they were going to lower some anchors from the bow. 31 Then Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, “Unless these men stay with the ship, you cannot be saved.” 32 So the soldiers cut the ropes that held the lifeboat and let it drift away.
33 Just before dawn Paul urged them all to eat. “For the last fourteen days,” he said, “you have been in constant suspense and have gone without food—you haven’t eaten anything. 34 Now I urge you to take some food. You need it to survive. Not one of you will lose a single hair from his head.” 35 After he said this, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in front of them all. Then he broke it and began to eat.36 They were all encouraged and ate some food themselves.37 Altogether there were 276 of us on board. 38 When they had eaten as much as they wanted, they lightened the ship by throwing the grain into the sea.
39 When daylight came, they did not recognize the land, but they saw a bay with a sandy beach, where they decided to run the ship aground if they could. 40 Cutting loose the anchors, they left them in the sea and at the same time untied the ropes that held the rudders. Then they hoisted the foresail to the wind and made for the beach. 41 But the ship struck a sandbar and ran aground. The bow stuck fast and would not move, and the stern was broken to pieces by the pounding of the surf.
42 The soldiers planned to kill the prisoners to prevent any of them from swimming away and escaping. 43 But the centurion wanted to spare Paul’s life and kept them from carrying out their plan. He ordered those who could swim to jump overboard first and get to land.44 The rest were to get there on planks or on other pieces of the ship. In this way everyone reached land safely.
Paul Ashore on Malta
28 Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta. 2 The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold. 3 Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. 4 When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, “This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, the goddess Justice has not allowed him to live.” 5 But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects.
There will be times and seasons ahead when the Church (the people with Christ within like Paul), will need to stand in the gap that many may be saved from the shipwreck which this world has entered into. Jim
The votes will be cast but it will not change the outcome that the Lord wants:
Daniel 2:21King James Version (KJV)
21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
These lap top computers are not the best.
There is not a power on earth that will change the selection of the Lord for the POTUS. He raises up and lowers as He sees fit for the good of nations or the judgment of nations. What is the signs of tribulation? Many have their views and all base them on their understandings of scriptures. The many have staked their hopes, that they will be removed before the judgments of revelations are seen upon the earth. Many nations are in the throws of those judgment, even today. The hope for a J.N. Darby escape will become a fading hope and a great shaking will come within the steeple houses of the world. They will seek the relief from famine, a famine of hearing the True Word of the Lord.
The current events of this time period are right on schedule. The players are set for the forces of tribulation to spring forth and the blind believers will discover that they have not escaped that which is coming on the entire world. Happy is he who has received Christ within and is ready to stand in the evil day. Jmo Jim
Any Christians here should read this post:
Also, the (pre-trib) "rapture" as commonly taught nowadays in "churches" is also false and fake propaganda (which most pastors fall for), and was created in support of that same political agenda. Be not deceived.
Maranatha and God bless. God bless the real Jews also.
That is an interesting article that you posted. We have discussed this topic for years, even on the forums. When the sleepy believers begin to wake up and discover that their rapture theories have fallen in a heap, they may begin to study and review where they left the scriptures and their plain meanings.
The Lord is in control of the nations and uses those that are in positions for His Own purposes. When the many finally figure out that they are in a full blown tribulation period, they may come to repentance. If the believers actually believe that Mr. Trump will save and restore America, then they are blind. He may be a good man but the Lord will use him for His Own schedule.
The major item missing from America is as it has been from the beginning: REPENTANCE and receiving CHRIST WITHIN, and an election will never change either. Great fears are coming soon and many will be looking for answers. Even more false prophets will arise and those who have only been steeple house sheep will be the foolish ones. Much could be stated but the times and seasons ahead will bring the many to their knees. JMO. Jim
As you know, we are at an alternative cancer treatment hospital. There is a young woman here named Christy that is in need of healing. She is bleeding faster than they can transfuse blood into her. I have agreed with her for the bleeding to stop. Please join me in praying for her, and adding her to any prayer groups you know of. Pray that she will continue to have hope and to increase her strength to fight this battle.
Joel chapter 3!
Well, Jim. I just saw your post.
May the Lord show Himself strong on Christy's behalf. May He who made the body, heal the body. May the bleeding STOP! May Christy find the strength to glorify You in, and through, her suffering. May hope blossom and abound, even in this great extremity. May she (like SWM) honor Thee..in the days ahead..before all else, and above all else. May Your sweet presence chase the gloom away. May Your strong right arm be the pillow Christy rests her head on. May sorrow, fear and death be dealt a fatal blow...May the captive(s) be set free.
I continue to remember your trophy wife, Jim, when I carry my 'names' before the Throne of Grace. I continue to believe that my blessed Redeemer is able to do far more, far beyond and far better than I could/would ever think..or imagine..or dream..or, even, pray for. This He proves, over and over again, to me..in His iwn time and by His own ways. O, these dumb and heavy lips: so slow and slack in their praise! Shame, thrice-shame, on me.
Linda and I have just returned from the alternative hospital in Mexico. When I arrived, I did not realize at first, that I was again in the mission field, white unto harvest. I was surrounded with the sick and several who did not have any hope of health. Radiation and chemo had almost withdrawn any hope of ever being healthy again. Some were praying their beads and others were just lost spiritually. The Spirit of the Lord began to move and salvation flowed to many in need.
Oh what a mission field! It was as if all of us were placed there for that season. Linda and I visited the sick and she was a great inspiration as she was also there for treatments. One of the main staff members told me that it would have been good if we had started classes on the meaning of the scriptures. Oh well, Jesus changes our lives and we just/must do that which He has placed before us each day. Salvation has entered that house. amen: Jim and Linda
We are back from our "alternative vacation" in Mexico. While we there for my treatment, many other wonderful things happened while we were there. Several people asked Jesus to come into their hearts, and we talked with some about scriptures and things that they had never even heard of before because they were in systems that didn't promote parishioners reading the Bible on their own. Even though I was receiving at least 7 hours of treatment a day, and sometimes 10, there was much time for meeting with others and even taking walks in the 85 to 99 degree heat. Wouldn't you know today the temperature there is supposed to go down to the 70's. The people there are all so friendly. We made a lot of friends both in the hospital and at a coffee shop that we went to almost daily. Our favorite person at the coffee shop was a door opener/greeter/table cleaner. He knew some English, and visited with us when they weren't busy. Sadly, the last two days we went there, he wasn't there and they said he was in the hospital. Please add him to your prayers. We don't know his problem, but we believe Jesus can touch him and heal him. His name is Edgardo. He is 70 years old and makes only about $10 a day.
Thanks for all your prayers. I feel great, and in a few months will have testing here to see what is happening inside me, but I am confident that I am healed. Linda
The recent trip to Mexico, was again, a display of the lost condition of many good people. We were surrounded , for almost a month, with atheists, RCCers, Mormons and a few that are stuck in their pews. This wonderful mission field is always "white unto harvest". There were those who had been in their system their entire lives and had never read even one scripture from the bible. They had followed their blind priestcraft to the gates of hell, Christless and fearful. We had lots of time to sit with them and open the scriptures with them for their first time. Our position: You must be born again, receiving Christ within by invitation. Repentance of sin and begin to hear the voice of the Spirit of God, from within and reject the blinded teachings of men.
The world today is in a state of confusion. The media is always there to push our buttons. The Mexicans wanted to discuss the elections and their fears. We wanted to present Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Our nation will not be restored to its past. There is not a man on the earth who fix our woes. If we see true revival break forth, then we have a chance of restoration. We do not see an Evan Roberts nor a Brother Seymore upon the landscape but we see the blinded prosperity preachers and their lost assemblies. We see the sin of Hollywood and the filth of programing for our homes.
Happy is he who has the revelation of doing that which the Lord has placed before them, every day, as they are witnesses for Him and have repented of their steeple house divisions.
[Chapter 96] Enoch
1 Be hopeful, ye righteous; for suddenly shall the sinners perish before you, And ye shall have lordship over them according to your desires.
2 [And in the day of the tribulation of the sinners, Your children shall mount and rise as eagles, And higher than the vultures will be your nest, And ye shall ascend and enter the crevices of the earth, And the clefts of the rock for ever as coneys before the unrighteous, And the sirens shall sigh because of you-and weep.]
3 Wherefore fear not, ye that have suffered; For healing shall be your portion, And a bright light shall enlighten you, And the voice of rest ye shall hear from heaven.
4 Woe unto you, ye sinners, for your riches make you appear like the righteous, But your hearts convict you of being sinners, And this fact shall be a testimony against you for a memorial of (your) evil deeds.
5 Woe to you who devour the finest of the wheat, And drink wine in large bowls, And tread under foot the lowly with your might.
6 Woe to you who drink water from every fountain, For suddenly shall ye be consumed and wither away, Because ye have forsaken the fountain of life.
7 Woe to you who work unrighteousness And deceit and blasphemy: It shall be a memorial against you for evil.
8 Woe to you, ye mighty, Who with might oppress the righteous; For the day of your destruction is coming.
In those days many and good days shall come to the righteous-in the day of your judgement.
When a person opens their mouth and relates the name of their blind steeple house system, the door is closed quickly for converting the sinners to Christ. It is always better to say: "You need Jesus within and you need Him as your Life".
We received an e-mail from one of the women that we met at the hospital. She has asked all of us for prayer. Her name is Jo.
IF we are all projections of GOD, why do we need to DO anything? What is the point?
To fulfill our own prophesy? Why do that if we are the prophesy?
What could one say without a rant? There will be a great judgment in that day and the site will be frightening and a label of being in the priestcraft, even with a colorful robe will not close the gates of hell.
