What does a Christian look like, sound like, pray like? When our favorite sports figure talks about the Lord, falls on their knees after a point, a goal, a basket a touch down, is that a true witness? What if their own lives, away from the courts and fields, are filled with sin, covenant breakers, divorced/remarried and seen as a normal Christian life? Is this the mark of true Christianity?
Some wear costumes as to their faith or of their many divisions. Funny hats, turned around collars, robes, and even ratted hair. Do these props naturally flow from the Light and Life of Christ within? Nope! What does a Christian sound like? If they read and quote the scriptures, even having title given by men of "reverend" or a certificate from a divided steeple house bible college, or even a special seat in the assembly, right up front and high above the sheep, is all this the sign of a Christian? Nope!
May a Christian be found, traveling the globe, within the many mission fields of the divided world and having the name of being a "missionary"? Some times! The false antichrist clergy of old knew how to find and mark a true Christian. They stripped them of their robes, if there were any, were throw into prison, thrown out of the man made steeple houses of their day, suffered the loss of all property, promoted as evil heretics (of which the world was not worthy of such as these) and many given to the pile of brush and flames before they entered into the gates of the Kingdom. It is this same blind clergy who pile the wood and strike the match. Is this the way the true Church was to function? Nope!
The days will soon come when all of these props will fall in a heap. Everything that can be shaken will be and the only things still standing will be he who truly has the Life of Christ within. Do we have eyes to see and ears to hear today? jmo Jim
A CALL TO ARMS, A CALL TO ARMS
Sound the Alarm yes Sound the Alarm
A Call to Arms yes a Call to Arms
For years the Watchmen have warned of things yet far away
Now the alarm is sounding for that which is upon us today.
Destruction upon destruction for the whole land is spoiled
The people have become foolish and in evil are embroiled.
O my soul the sound of trumpet the alarm of war
What vials have been opened; what from them will be poured?
Blow the trumpet in Zion and sound an alarm in My Holy Mountain
The works of the nations have been seen and the sins of the people counted.
Let the priests and the ministers of the Lord now weep
We did not keep His statutes and now the tares are more than the wheat.
Many believe we have now won a great battle and have folded their hands to sleep
But we have not as yet even entered into battle but beware the war upon us creeps.
America has but chosen a man for office and how he leads we are yet to see
And too many deluded by their bondage believe their chains make them free.
America has awakened briefly before, only to hit the Snooze and return to our sleep
Thinking there is peace and safety when there is no safety and there is no peace.
We have ignored the promise of blessing and curse for those that divide God’s land
America is leading the charge with 70 nations to implement their coveted two state-plan.
Now is the time to put on the raiment proper for the conflict
Time to put on the whole armor that Yahuah provided us with
Knowing the weapons of our warfare are not carnal or hidden in the shadows
But mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
Strongholds that have been built for centuries
Ruled and protected by powers and principalities
Possessing many different modalities using multiple personalities
Commonalities, nationalities and political formalities to insure their finality.
That finality being known by many different names
But ignored by many and those who exposed it are shamed.
Called conspiracy theorist if you expose the New World Order
And while we sleep the enemy marches ever forward.
Some say we have received a reprieve at this moment
I say we have an opportunity and if we squander it we will lament.
For too long we have been found wanting when in the balance we were weighed
It is time to fold our hands, not to sleep but to fervently pray.
Many terrible things are ready to be released upon mankind
How you fair will depend upon with whom you are aligned.
In the midst of the darkness will burn Revival’s Fire
To seek a Great Awakening is that to which we must aspire.
The Fire will light the way for those who have called upon the Living God for sight
It will be a Refiner’s Fire but those unprepared and unrepentant will face an awful plight.
Those things the Watchmen warned about haven’t gone away
That is why the bells are ringing and the alarm goes out today.
This is a call to those who claim His Name for revival for repentance and to pray
The enemy hasn’t given up rather they are gearing up to escalate the fray.
Sound the Alarm yes Sound the Alarm
This is a Call to Arms, a Call to Arms.
The land before us has been like Eden the beautiful garden
But behind us it will be desolate if our hearts remain hardened.
We cannot claim that our hearts are not granite and hard as stone
When the unborn babes cry out from where their discarded bodies were thrown.
We cannot claim we are not stiff necked when Truth is trampled in our streets
We cannot claim our consciences are not seared when artists and leaders hold spirit feasts.
Destruction upon destruction is cried; for spoiled is the whole land
It is time for tearing down for building up and upon our knees to take our stand.
What blessings or what cursing lie before the people today?
Has not life or death been set before us as the Scriptures say?
Choose life that both thou and thy seed may live.
No greater warning, or opportunity, could Yahuah give.
Let him who has an ear hear and answer the Spirit’s call
The Principalities and Powers are inciting a terrible squall
It is time to Sound the Alarm yes Sound the Alarm
Do you hear the Call to Arms, the Call to Arms?

Jer. 4, Joel 2, Eph.6: 10-19, Deu. 30:19
Matthew 5King James Version (KJV)
5 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
There is only a flicker of hope, a timing of the Lord, a man set in a secular position, a gathering of many national leaders, a man to promote life and freedom, and he is arriving on the scene, on the 20th. Yes, blessed are the "peacemakers" and that message, from the Lord, has not changed and never will. The Prince of Peace is also coming. Jim
YES, IN THE LAST DAYS AS WRITTEN:
Isaiah 2King James Version (KJV)
2 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
Oh what to do with those who say that they are hearing from the Lord? Our seventy year period is upon us this year. The dividing of the land of Israel looks to be just ahead and the dividing , within the Church, of the sheep and the goats is also in view. Oh yes, there is much to say and decades of warnings has not brought revival. Consider the message given to this man and make your own judgment.
Repentance is always the avenue to the blessings of the Lord. Jim
For many years, we have warned the Church that Islam will pitch its tents at the Vatican. In the far past, the so-called Christian religion was based in two places. The east at Constantinople and the west at Rome. We see the history of the invasion and destruction of the eastern location and the west will also fall in the end days.
For one to assume that the mingling of these two religions will make a "one world religion" is a bit of a stretch. The true Church is not involved in either nor is the true Church a religion. Jesus is the Life of the Church, set apart from all religions and has not divided itself from the Body. Great will be the pain for those who discover that their steeple house system is empty of Life and detoured from the Gates of the Kingdom. jmo Jim
The Supposed End of the World
By:Andrew MillerFrom:Miller's Church HistoryFrom:Europe (814 A.D. - 1000 A.D.): Chapter 17
No period in church history, or perhaps in any history, or in any country, presents a darker picture than christian Europe at the close of the tenth century. The degradation of the papacy, the corrupt state of the church within, and the number and power of her enemies without, threatened her complete overthrow. Besides the unbelieving Mahometans in the East, and the pagan Northmen in the West, a new enemy -the Hungarians—burst unexpectedly upon Christendom. In the strong language of history, they seemed as hordes of savages, or wild beasts, let loose upon mankind. Their source was unknown, but their numbers appeared inexhaustible. Indiscriminate massacre seemed their only war law: civilization and Christianity withered before their desolating march, and all mankind were panic-stricken.
In addition to these appalling calamities, famines prevailed and brought plague and pestilence in their train. The most alarming signs were supposed to be seen in the sun and the moon. The prediction of our Lord seemed to be accomplished: "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken." But, though these words fitly describe the state of things then, the prophecy was far from being fulfilled; as our Lord immediately adds, "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory." (Luke 21:25-27.)
But if ever man might be forgiven the dream of believing that the end of the world was come, it was then. The clergy preached it, and people believed it, and it rapidly spread over all Europe. It was boldly promulgated that the world would come to an end when a thousand years from the Savior's birth were expired. From about the year 960 the panic increased, but the year 999 was looked upon as the last which any one would ever see. This general delusion, through the power of Satan, was founded on a total misunderstanding and false interpretation of the prophecy concerning the millennial reign of the saints with Christ for a thousand years. "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years." (Rev. 20:1-7.)
The Year of Terror
The ordinary cares and employments of this life were given up. The land was left untilled; for why plow, why sow, when no one would be left to reap? Houses were allowed to fall into decay; for why build, why repair, why trouble about property, when a few months will put an end to all terrestrial things? History was neglected; for why chronicle events, when no posterity was expected to read the records? The rich, the noble, the princes, and bishops, abandoned their friends and families, and hastened to the shores of Palestine, in the persuasion that Mount Zion would be the throne of Christ when He descended to judge the world. Large sums of money were given to churches and monasteries, as if to secure a more favorable sentence from the supreme Judge. Kings and emperors begged at monastery doors, to be admitted as brethren of the holy order; crowds of the common people slept in the porches of the holy buildings, or at least under their shadow.
But in the meantime the multitudes must be fed. The last day of the thousand years had not yet arrived. But food there was none; corn and cattle were exhausted, and no provision had been made for the future. The most frightful extremities were endured, far too revolting to be repeated here. But the day of doom drew nearer and nearer. The last evening of the thousand years arrived: a sleepless night for all Europe! Imagination must fill up the doleful picture. But in place of some extraordinary convulsion, which all were tremblingly waiting for, the night passed away as other nights had done, and in the morning the sun shed forth his beams as peacefully as ever. The amazed but now relieved multitudes began to return to their homes, repair their buildings, plow, sow, and resume their former occupations.
Thus closed the first thousand years of the church's history; the darkest day in the reign of Jezebel, and in the annals of Christendom.
To Lord Wenceslas of Dubá and Lord Jan of Chlum [June 26 1415]
Most gracious lords and most faithful lovers of truth and my comforters in the truth, appointed by God for me like angels. I cannot truly describe my gratitude for your constancy and the kindly benefits which you have shown me, a sinner, although in hope a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. I desire that He, Jesus Christ, our most kind Creator, Redeemer, and Savior, may reward you in the present time, giving you Himself as the best reward for the future. Hence I exhort you by his mercy that you direct yourselves by His law, and particularly by his most holy commandments.
You, noble Wencelas, marry a wife and, abandoning the worldly vanities, live holily in matrimony. And you, Lord Jan, leave already the service of mortal kings and stay at home with your wife and boys in the service of God. For you see how the wheel of worldly vanity spins, now lifting one, then plunging down another, granting very brief pleasure to the man it lifts up, after which follows eternal torment in fire and darkness.
You already know now the behavior of the spirituals, who call themselves the true manifest vicars of Christ and His apostles, and proclaim themselves the holy Church and the most sacred Council that cannot err. It nonetheless did err: first by adoring [Pope] John XXIII on bended knees, kissing his feet, and calling him the most holy, although they knew that he was a base murderer, a sodomite, a simoniac, and a heretic, as they declared later in their condemnation of him. They have already cut off the head of the Church, have torn out the heart of the Church, have exhausted the never—drying fountain of the Church, and have made utterly deficient the all—sufficient and unfailing refuge of the Church to which every Christian should flee for refuge... Now faithful Christendom exists without a pope, a mere man, having Christ Jesus for its head, who directs it the best; for its heart, which vivifies it, granting the life of grace; for the fountain which irrigates it by the seven graces of the Holy Spirit; for the channel in which flow all the streams of graces; for the all—sufficient and unfailing refuge to which I, a wretch, run, firmly hoping that it will not fail me in directing, vivifying, and aiding me; but will liberate me from the sins of the present miserable life, and reward me with infinite joy.
The Council has also erred three or more times by wrongly abstracting the articles form my books, rejecting some of them by corrupting and confusing [their meaning]; and even in the latest copy of the articles by abbreviating some, as will be evident to those who compare the books with those articles. From this I have plainly learned, along with you, that not everything the council does, says, or defines is approved by the most true judge, Christ Jesus. Blessed are those therefore, who, observing the law of Christ, recognize, abandon, and repudiate the pomp, avarice, hypocrisy, and deceit of Antichrist and of his ministers, while they patiently await the advent of the most just Judge. I beseech you in the bowels of Jesus Christ that you flee evil priests but love the good according to their works; and as much as in you lies, along with other faithful barons and lords, that you do not suffer them to be oppressed. For on that account God has placed you over others.
I think that there will be a great persecution in the Kingdom of Bohemia of those who serve God faithfully, unless the Lord oppose his hand through the secular lords, whom he has enlightened in His law more than the spirituals. O, how great madness it is to condemn as error the Gospel of Christ and the Epistle of St Paul, which he received, as he says, not from men, but from Christ; and to condemn as error the act of Christ along with the acts of His apostles and other saints — namely, about the communion of the sacrament of the Lord, instituted for all adult believers! Alas! they call it an error that believing laity should be allowed to drink of the cup of the Lord, and if a priest should give them thus to drink, that he be then regarded as in error, and unless he desist, be condemned as a heretic! O Saint Paul! You say to all the faithful: “As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes;” that is, until the Day of Judgment, when he shall come. And lo! it is even now said that the custom of the Roman Church is in opposition to it!
I just want to acknowledge, in a public fashion, that You are, and have been, my "ever-present Help in times of need and trouble". Had the Way before me gone unprepared, I would have stumbled; I would have erred. Had I been left bereft of Guidance & Prayer, I would have quit long ago; I doubt I'd even care.
But, my Strength has been as my day! ..& to Thee I openly say: "Father, I need Thee more." Lead us .. Feed us .. Heal us .. Free us...Fill us..and yes, Lord, even thrill us; Chase the glooms away. Lord, show me more of the Glory in store for All whom You've called out by name, Teach me that art that works in the heart of a Servant. Teach me that Love .. love borne from Above ..that lays down it's life for it's Friends.
"Thy lines, O, Lord, have fallen to me in pleasant places." Is it Your smile I see, when suddenly, the faded face of the 'Alz-hammered' lights up?.. Is that Your joy we hear when we hear that "Cheer!", arising from the basketball floor? ..Where the 'eunuchs' on earth perceive their sure worth; and the 'lame' perform their ballet.
How can a man not love Thee, Lord? Know they not Thou art the Word? "Logos"of the univerese .. Breaker of that ancient curse. Lover of the souls of men ...Vanquisher of Death and Sin. A blood-stained Door to enter through; what more, may I ask, can One Man do?
Some might say, "Bah! What a fable." Yet, the words are writ for a little Table. A Table where a few, with glee, sit in silence & wait for Thee. Waiting for Thy face so fair; waiting to meet Thee in the air. Waiting and saying, "Be of good cheer!". One to the other, "Your redemption draws near."
Now, Father, may I say once more how I love to walk where You've walked before. The Vineyard's Thine; may Your face constantly shine..on those who come here to glean. For even the 'leavings', to them gleaning believing, become lucious clusters of grapes. Some even glean in the winter, encouraged by Thy .."Yes, enter." And to their surprise, with tear-filled eyes, full baskets & running over!
Now, singing 'round the Table, Lord, in unison we agree: Had You not loved us first, still dead and dumb are we. It's in that light we dare to say, "Father, I love Thee" today and always. Apart from thy Presence, apart from thy Care...Dad and I are simply 2 old men with little, or no love, to share. But, thanks be to God for His riches unsearchable, for His joy indescribable, for His peace which surpasses knowledge and for His grace unearnable. Praise be to Him who is able to do exceedingly above what I am able to ask for..or dream of.
..."In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea..with a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me, ..."
O, that all men would.."Taste, and see, that the Lord is good."
"I bid you to help me to praise."
Two nephews both still young, 12 &13, bet they are both rare birds in the PNW, both saved and Cash fans. Let's be real how many kids in Seattle have the "Man in Black" on their playlists? They are both fine marksmen and hard workers too.
Thanks for all you do, you are a real encouragement brother!!
Children are the Lord's priceless Jewels, only loaned to us to be Loved.
Joyful Blessings from our Heavenly Father.
Beloved JAH knows each by name, He knows the number of hairs on each Childs head, He hears every time they laugh, every time they cry, He collects every tear in a bottle.
Every Child has a Guardian Angel to watch over Them.
The Creator of Heaven and Earth, loves each Child with all His Heart.
His children are entrusted into our imperfect hands to Love and Protect, until They are of the age of Reason.
God's ways and purposes, His Laws, are written on the tables of our hearts, His Breath is in our lungs, his Light within our Spirit.
We have but to listen, to tune our hearts unto His Voice within, turn our face toward Him and ask Him to speak to Us.
Beloved Father wants us to nurture and raise them up, taught of God his Love, his Ways and Desires.
We have a huge responsibility but one filled with such blessed reward, true Joy of Family.
Big Nasty somebody in your Family is making our Heavenly Father very Proud.
May God continue to Bless You, your Siblings and these precious Boys.

Yes it is a new day. This will bring even more conflicts within the reporting. In the far past, there was a watchful eye upon the morality of the nation. Lately, the eye is darkened, bent to the dark light of greed/power/snowflakeism/and the complete overthrow of this nation. It may be that some relief will come through this new era. Mr. Trump needs an advisor to help him see the spiritual damage which has been done and the avenue to healing. jmo Jim
Thanks for the kind words, our family has been tremendously blessed with godly parents, who have lived their faith. I thank God that his blessings have been on my nephews and family.
Post #1052, watched that one and not sure what to think, listened to it twice, it sounded a little like 'dominion theology' to me. America Rising.... Babylon Rising...... I don't think we are going to topple the NWO, (the church - however one defines it), if we were tasked with that, why has it not happened already?, even in the early, powerful, spirit filled church.?
imho, that is something the Lord will do at His coming.
My wife and I were seated at a table once at a prophetic conference. Paula and Randy White were at our table, the cute blonde lady that gave an invocation prior to Trumps inauguration and swearing in. She is now divorced from Randy and is Paula White-Cain (read into Cain what ever you want). She said 'God was leading them in different directions', she is a senior pastor in Lakeland Florida I think, perhaps Orlando. A Charismatic.
imho, Trump best pick a better spiritual advisors than PW-Cain
Anyway, at a table of eight over dinner you figure they would at least talk to us and be cordial, my wife was sitting right next to her, and she was dressed to the 9's as was her husband, as were the other two pastors couples there at our table. They treated us like peasants, and they would not even talk to us. I guess I should have not worn jeans. My bad.
I guess I am making your case for you NW against the steeple houses ........ I am with you.
I could say more but I won't. That video prompted this post, those people reminded me of that.
The tape that I posted on #1052 is a mixed bag. The panel of people on the video are mixed into the whole prophetic/end times mess. There are some parts of these messages that are really good. The parts that are missing are the things that continually concern me. The good old boy club is alive and well. There is very little correction given for those who are exposed in great errors.
I could expose many sins within the systems of men and within the Charismatic renewal systems, many! I was there, watching/praying and asking the Lord why I placed there in that time frame. It really does not accomplish any good to name names and spend our time to correct the folly. He has called us to preach Christ and Him crucified. Oh how the fields are white unto harvest these days. I was involved in a real outpouring of salvation for a four year period, long ago and thousands were saved. Then it was over. After that, it was some here and some there as we continue to be there for those who are in need. He has called us to be fishers of men. Oh what a blessing to work in His Field.
Will the steeple houses ever listen? When a true prophet walks into their building, will he be able to speak the "Word of the Lord" or will he be treated like George Fox? I have known of very few real prophets in my lifetime. I remember a man from RSA, a real one, and he stood before a large group of men and began to speak the truth. (I was the one in the assembly shouting for joy). He was basically stopped short and canceled from more meetings. The leaders were worried that his message would upset some of the pastors in the meetings. Those men needed to be more than upset, they needed to come to repentance.
Once, about 30 years ago, I decided to gather some of the local elders and S.H. sitters for a luncheon. I told them the Truth of Jesus and His Kingdom. I thought a fist fight was going to start, they were slobbering mad.
I will say, "if" the local steeple houses, in one's area, love you and see you as a great Christian man, you are truly in trouble. We just do not understand the forces that will come against us if we speak the Word of the Lord. Happy is he who has received the Revelations of the Spirit of God and shouted them from the housetops. He will always be an outcast of the steeple houses of men. jmo Jim (P.S. Jer. Jr. ... I would be thrown off of that video stage in less than two minutes, as you already know).
There are several topics that are difficult to teach/preach and one of them is "what is adultery." John lost his head over confronting this subject and few will teach it today. If one is called to preach at a local assembly, looking out over the group and seeing a multitude of ones in this sin, will he call them to repentance? Almost never! That assembly will have 50% of the seats empty the next Sunday and even more later and finally closing down .
The modern systems want the sheep to be happy within their sins. (The days are coming when there will be many tears). A happy sinner is a happy tither. The best way to achieve S.H. growth and expansion is well known: Just preach the "happy texts" like Pollyanna. However, much of the weeping and wailing will be within the assembly as He is seen and we are found outside the gates of the Kingdom. jmo Jim
