The Last Tear To Fall In History- A Word Of Encouragement To The Remnant



Isa 65:17  For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

Rev 22:6  And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

Rev 22:7  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Rev 22:10  And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

Rev 22:11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

Rev 21:3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Rev 21:4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Many great mystery's, and prophecy has been sealed, as Daniels Prophecy was sealed, until these last days, but notice, the book of Revelations was never to be sealed, so we have all we need to understand all that is going to happen in the tribulation, we have the unsealed words of Jesus concerning the birth pains. Matt 24, Mk 13, Lk 21, none of this is sealed. Thessalonians 1 and 2 are not sealed. We have what we need to know.

I have written before, so many non- believers and believers alike, always say, No man knows the day or hour, this as I have taught, deals with the exact day, as the Greek points out a given short  time frame, it is the non --believers who do not know, the believer is, should be in the know. The N.T. clearly teaches, we the believer will not be caught unaware, we do not know the exact day Jesus returns, but we are given the unsealed truth of all that leads up to it. LK said when you see all things coming on the earth , lift up your head for your redemption draweth near, so even in the end , right before the second coming we are in the know. Understand this when dealing with nay- sayers, non- believers say, those who do not understand the unsealed prophecy's.

The thing I want to point out is a good word, a comforting word.

Every tear shall be wiped away, the last tear drop to fall in all history is not far off. Think of that , the last tear, that is amazing, all will be made new.

You may be going trough confusion, perplexity, a living hell , trials , tribulations, but we win as you read the end of the story. Our lord will soon come to save us and take us home, and we will have eternal life of joy with no tears.

We shed many tears, but soon we will not. Paul said there is no comparison , the great things he was suffering, in the grand balance of eternal life. We must get to the point where we understand, soon it will be all over.

Think on this, let it comfort you, soon the last tear drop in history will be shed, we must hang on to this word in hard times.

It will be hard, America is going to hell fast, but we are not, if we are his, also, every tear you shed in prayer and sadness, is put in the lords bottle of remembrance, that teaches us not one tear we shed , this side of Glory goes to waist. Your tears beloved go into the bottle of remembrance, as your name is written in the book of remembrance, The lord remembers, he knows right where you are, everything that is putting fear in you, guilt over set backs, all is in the masters hand, we are engraved in his palm, and what a place to be, in the holy lords hand, he has us covered.

It is true very hard days are ahead, but fear not, as we are under the watchful eye of our lord. Let us stand strong in grace, faith, and know, the lord has everything under control. Yes dear reader soon , very soon we will have no more memory of all we are going through, and all tears will be wiped away for eternity, what a blessed promise to know soon, we all will shed the last tear drop in history, it is coming soon, our redeemer lives and he will bless you and keep you in the days ahead, rest in this word, and you can take it to the bank,( The Only True To Big To Fail Bank LOL) it is true, we win, we will be OK, our heavenly father loves us so much, how can we fear, he knows your name, he knows your place you live, he hears your prayers, and he collects every single tear.




Mat 25:13  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.






Barnes:


Matthew 25:13

Watch, therefore ... - This is the scope or design of the whole parable. This is the great truth that Christ wished to inculcate, and all parts of the parable are to be interpreted in reference to this admonition. Like the virgins, many are professedly going to meet the Bridegroom - the Lord Jesus Christ. Like the coming of the bridegroom, his advent will be sudden. It will be to many at an unexpected time.


 Many, even professing Christians, will be engaged in the business of the world; thoughtless about eternity; not expecting his approach, and not prepared. They will only profess to know him, but in works they will deny him. So death will come. All approaches of the Son of God to judge men are sudden, and to many unexpected. So many, when they shall see him coming, at death or the judgment, will begin, like the foolish virgins, to be active, and to prepare to die; but it will be too late. They that are ready will enter in, and heaven will be closed forever against all others. The “coming” of the Saviour is certain. The precise time “when” he will come is not certain. As the virgins should all have watched and been ready, so should we. They who are Christians should be ever watchful; and they who are not should lose no time to be ready, for in such an hour as they think not the Son of man shall come.

Note Orthodox end time theology, Barnes says I put it in red, His Advent, his second coming not a secret rapture. Notice in the verse so many use, the main them, his the lords people are on watch, and it will not take us by surprise, amen.

1Th 5:2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 

1Th 5:3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 


1Th 5:4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 





There you have it, from the word, that , that day should overtake us as a thief, we are in the know, as we are known, so be full of comfort this day and know nothing will overtake you, nothing aside from the will of the lord, he knows best, he knows who will be going to glory and those why are lft behind, the real deal from the word. 


I have been doing a lot of weeping, as some of you had, when the lord spoke into my spirit, this grand insight, what comfort and joy it gave me, may it do the same for you today, dear one in Christ

Re Post -What A Prophets Is-Leonard Ravinhill

If your call is in the prophetic gift, be encouraged, I have read this hundreds of times. It builds the prophet up and tells others the difference , the way to gage a true and false prophet.

I said the implications of Planet X the end of the world , as it did not come, that people, even remnant ones would start to question everything, call the lords anointed messages, and messengers false, it would be this way, and would be a big problem, well it has started, I knew it would. It has started on line and locally, See the post , and understand it will become worse, men can not endure sound doctrine. Wow, it has really taken over the world, the net, every where.

I also said recently, David Wilkersons Prophecy in09' What is a few years? I am reading and hearing the big smak down, a N.T. prophet knows in part and prophecy's in part, does anyone understand this now days. I make it very clear I am not the lord, I miss some now and the we all do.

I anguish in my soul, what I see happening to the holy bride, so many are letting the enemy have his way, it saddens me greatly. Only the enemy kicks you when your down, so know what your doing and who you are serving when you do this. The Christian army is the only army that kills it's wounded.

If your one who kicks a true servant of the lord, when they are down, and say, where is your God, where are these things you have spoken of, know who your serving, this is serious reader, you need to examine your heart.This can cost you your salvation, and at the least, you will be under the lords Judgment. So fellow Ones with the gift of Prophecy, stand bold, strong and battle on, and read this re post and print it out, it will bring comfort when your in a hard place and feel what is the use, no one listens.


“PICTURE OF A PROPHET” – A Total CLASSIC!

-by Leonard Ravenhill.

The prophet in his day is fully accepted of God and totally rejected by men.

Years back, Dr. Gregory Mantle was right when he said, “No man

can be fully accepted until he is totally rejected.” The prophet of

the Lord is aware of both these experiences. They are his “brand name.”

The group, challenged by the prophet because they are smug and

comfortably insulated from a perishing world in their warm but

untested theology, is not likely to vote him “Man of the year” when

he refers to them as habituates of the synagogue of Satan!

The prophet comes to set up that which is upset. His work is to

call into line those who are out of line! He is unpopular because he

opposes the popular in morality and spirituality. In a day of faceless

politicians and voiceless preachers, there is not a more urgent

national need than that we cry to God for a prophet! The function

of the prophet, as Austin-Sparks once said, “has almost always

been that of recovery.”

The prophet is God’s detective seeking for a lost treasure. The

degree of his effectiveness is determined by his measure of

unpopularity. Compromise is not known to him.

He has no price tags.

He is totally ‘otherworldly.’

He is unquestionably controversial and unpardonably hostile.

He marches to another drummer!

He breathes the rarefied air of inspiration.

He is a “seer” who comes to lead the blind.

He lives in the heights of God and comes into the valley with a

“thus saith the Lord.”

He shares some of the foreknowledge of God and so is aware of

impending judgment.

He lives in ‘splendid isolation.’

He is forthright and outright, but he claims no birthright.

His message is “repent, be reconciled to God or else…!”

His prophecies are parried.

His truth brings torment, but his voice is never void.

He is the villain of today and the hero of tomorrow.

He is excommunicated while alive and exalted when dead!

He is dishonored with epithets when breathing and honored with

epitaphs when dead.

He is a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, but few ‘make the grade’

in his class.

He is friendless while living and famous when dead.

He is against the establishment in ministry; then he is established

as a saint by posterity.

He eats daily the bread of affliction while he ministers, but he feeds

the Bread of Life to those who listen.

He walks before men for days but has walked before God for years.

He is a scourge to the nation before he is scourged by the nation.

He announces, pronounces, and denounces!

He has a heart like a volcano and his words are as fire.

He talks to men about God.

He carries the lamp of truth amongst heretics while he is lampooned by men.

He faces God before he faces men, but he is self-effacing.

He hides with God in the secret place, but he has nothing to hide

in the marketplace.

He is naturally sensitive but supernaturally spiritual.

He has passion, purpose and pugnacity.

He is ordained of God but disdained by men.

Our national need at this hour is not that the dollar recover its

strength, or that we save face over the Watergate affair, or that we

find the answer to the ecology problem. We need a God-sent prophet!

I am bombarded with talk or letters about the coming shortages in

our national life: bread, fuel, energy. I read between the lines from

people not practiced in scaring folk. They feel that the “seven years

of plenty” are over for us. The “seven years of famine” are ahead.

But the greatest famine of all in this nation at this given moment is

a FAMINE OF THE HEARING OF THE WORDS OF GOD (Amos 8:11).

Millions have been spent on evangelism in the last twenty-five years.

Hundreds of gospel messages streak through the air over the nation

every day. Crusades have been held; healing meetings have made

a vital contribution. “Come-outers” have “come out” and settled, too,

without a nation-shaking revival. Organizers we have. Skilled

preachers abound. Multi-million dollar Christian organizations

straddle the nation. BUT where, oh where, is the prophet? Where

are the incandescent men fresh from the holy place? Where is the

Moses to plead in fasting before the holiness of the Lord for our

moldy morality, our political perfidy, and sour and sick spirituality?

GOD’S MEN ARE IN HIDING UNTIL THE DAY OF THEIR SHOWING FORTH.

They will come.

The prophet is violated during his ministry, but he is vindicated by history.

There is a terrible vacuum in evangelical Christianity today. The

missing person in our ranks is the prophet. The man with a terrible

earnestness. The man totally otherworldly. The man rejected by

other men, even other good men, because they consider him too

austere, too severely committed, too negative and unsociable.

Let him be as plain as John the Baptist.

Let him for a season be a voice crying in the wilderness of modern

theology and stagnant “churchianity.”

Let him be as selfless as Paul the apostle.

Let him, too, say and live, “This ONE thing I do.”

Let him reject ecclesiastical favors.

Let him be self-abasing, nonself-seeking, nonself-projecting, nonself-righteous

, nonself-glorying, nonself-promoting.

Let him say nothing that will draw men to himself but only that which

will move men to God.

Let him come daily from the throne room of a holy God, the place

where he has received the order of the day. Let him, under God,

unstop the ears of the millions who are deaf through the clatter of

shekels milked from this hour of material mesmerism.

Let him cry with a voice this century has not heard because he

has seen a vision no man in this century has seen. God send us

this Moses to lead us from the wilderness of crass materialism,

where the rattlesnakes of lust bite us and where enlightened men,

totally blind spiritually, lead us to an ever-nearing Armageddon.

———————————————————

God have mercy! Send us PROPHETS!

“When a prophet is accepted and deified, his message is lost. The

prophet is only useful so long as he is stoned as a public nuisance

calling us to repentance, disturbing our comfortable routines,

breaking our respectable idols, shattering our sacred conventions.”

-A. G. Gardiner.

“The function of the Prophet has almost invariably been that of

recovery. That implies that his business is related to something

lost. That something being absolutely essential to God’s full

satisfaction, the dominant note of the Prophet was one of

dissatisfaction. And, there being the additional factor that, for

obvious reasons, the people were not disposed to go the costly

way of God’s full purpose, the Prophet was usually an unpopular person.”

-T. Austin Sparks.

“Those whom God calls to such a ministry – and a call is essential –

must be prepared for a pathway of unpopularity and misunderstanding.

“You troubler of Israel” was the way Ahab addressed Elijah.”

-Arthur Wallis.

The Song Remains The Same

Ever read the song of Moses? It is long, it is filled with conviction, something we do not hear now days , the song of Moses, remains the same. The message of Judgment remains the same. My friend The only blog I have as a link, said it today. I was meditating on this, as the lord said, you will go out, the same way you came in.

The lord said step up the boldness, preach truth, give the hard word, change not, no matter what and so, It is the holy spirit speaking, as I was up late and reading esp. Isa 10 and Ezek, The lord continues to speak, and confirm. So I post her word , the same , and wake up church in black and white, It will never change on this ministry, never.

Run The Race That You May Obtain The Crown



1Co 9:25  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.

1Co 9:26  I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

1Co 9:27  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.

Wesely:

1 Corinthians 9:25
And every one that there contendeth is temperate in all things - To an almost incredible degree; using the most rigorous self denial in food, sleep, and every other sensual indulgence.

Clarke;

1 Corinthians 9:26

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly - In the foot-course in those games, how many soever ran, only one could have the prize, however strenuously they might exert themselves; therefore, all ran uncertainly; but it was widely different in the Christian course, if every one ran as he ought, each would receive the prize.

The word αδηλως, which we translate uncertainly, has other meanings.

1.    It signifies ignorantly; I do not run like one ignorant of what he is about, or of the laws of the course; I know that there is an eternal life; I know the way that leads to it; and I know and feel the power of it.

2.    It signifies without observation; the eyes of all the spectators were fixed on those who ran in these races; and to gain the applause of the multitude, they stretched every nerve; the apostle knew that the eyes of all were fixed upon him.

1.    His false brethren waited for his halting:

2.    The persecuting Jews and Gentiles longed for his downfall:

3.    The Church of Christ looked on him with anxiety: And he acted in all things as under the immediate eye of God.

Temperate, Greek;

G1467
ἐγκρατεύομαι
egkrateuomai
eng-krat-yoo'-om-ahee
Middle voice from G1468; to exercise self restraint (in diet and chastity): - can([-not]) contain, be temperate.

Clarke:

Should be a castaway - The word αδοκιμος signifies such a person as the βραβευται, or judges of the games, reject as not having deserved the prize. So Paul himself might be rejected by the great Judge; and to prevent this, he ran, he contended, he denied himself, and brought his body into subjection to his spirit, and had his spirit governed by the Spirit of God. Had this heavenly man lived in our days, he would by a certain class of people have been deemed a legalist; a people who widely differ from the practice of the apostle, for they are conformed to the world, and they feed themselves without fear.

No U.C.E.S. fact, not fiction. Some commentaries that are Calvinist say it means what it indeed does not. The fight of election, covenant theology continues till we get to heaven. This simply is not found anywhere in the bible, the preservation, or the security of believers, is well founded, as we are sinners saved by grace, we can how ever fall from the faith, this is all over the word, the conditional clause IF.

The main point in this word is self sacrifice, self denial, holy living, doing it till it hurts, understanding we are in training on this side of Glory, we can expect bruises, broken limbs, injury's, testings, and such as we prepare for the true crown, the training in the Olympics of heaven , not of this world, we are not crowed in this life. The word says, beware lest you think you stand and fall.

Assuming all is well when it is not can only come from self examination and putting our flesh to death every day, holiness, there is no way around. We must live a different, non worldly life, eat different, drink different, use our time different, all of which, before we were in this holy race of Discipleship, we did what ever we wanted, we pampered our flesh, indulged in sin, the 180 degree turn in repentance changed the rules of the game, life, it must be lived different than before we were saved, if not are we saved, and if so, from what.

Current News And How It Is Prophetic-A EQ Hit The Gulf Is This A Confirmation Of The recent Red alert Prophecy, We Will See

Current News And How It Is  Prophetic

    Goldman Sachs Made 400 Million Betting On Food Prices In 2012 While Hundreds Of Millions Starved

Starving Child In Ethiopia - Photo by Cate Turton - Department for International Development Why does it seem like wherever there is human suffering, some giant bank is making money off of it?  According to a new report from the World Development Movement, Goldman Sachs made about 400 million dollars betting on food prices last year. 

Overall, 2012 was quite a banner year for Goldman Sachs.  As I reported in a previous article, revenues for Goldman increased by about 30 percent in 2012 and the price of Goldman stock has risen by more than 40 percent over the past 12 months.  It is estimated that the average banker at Goldman brought in a pay and bonus package of approximately $396,500 for 2012.  So without a doubt, Goldman Sachs is swimming in money right now.

 But what is the price for all of this "success"?  Many claim that the rampant speculation on food prices by the big banks has dramatically increased the global price of food and has caused the suffering of hundreds of millions of poor families around the planet to become much worse.  At this point, global food prices are more than twice as high as they were back in 2003.  Approximately 2 billion people on the planet spend at least half of their incomes on food, and close to a billion people regularly do not have enough food to eat.  Is it moral for Goldman Sachs and other big banks such as Barclays and Morgan Stanley to make hundreds of millions of dollars betting on the price of food if that is going to drive up global food prices and make it harder for poor families all over the world to feed themselves?

Wars and rumors of War, I have been saying a while now, do not just look at the middle east, The gov, said there goal is to build up the USA armed forces more in the Asian pacific area, that s a shift from the middle east to the China zone, a proxy war with china is what I have also warned about, not Iran as much. The USA is making China our worst new enemy, the network news has been hitting it hard, funny we allowed them to buy up everything and we took all MFG. jobs from the states to China, and now they are the new U.S.S.R. This is by design, I see an Asian war coming, more so than a war with Iran, but by proxy, so both nations can test each others abilities that way.


War with China, after we try, and they try on other soil to see who wins that, if it can be won, the last war there was not won, and it never ended as the article says. It was U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta  himself that made the announcement, the USA was going to , by 2020, have 80-90% of the armed forces in the Asian region, in the article, double talk, he said in this article it is nothing, why are they building up the armed forces so strong, and suddenly. It is because they said BY 2020 that 80-90% would be a done deal,  and the movement has started, war with China , the two super powers , sooner or later, and the powers shift from the East To the West. The kings of the East, will be, as I wrote a few posts ago, the end time super power. I strongly feel NATO and Turkey will lead the way, and wage war against Syria and not the USA, so much, as for some reason, we are not concerned about , nor want a war with Russia, but China, Yes, and this fits in the shift of the powers from West to East, by the West going to war with the East, the West will ,lose this war.

After threats against U.S., North Korea issues threats to South Korea
Posted on January 25, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

January 25, 2013 – NORTH KOREA - “Troubling and counterproductive” rhetoric from North Korea is inflaming tensions on the Korean peninsula, but ultimately, “we will judge North Korea by its actions, not its words,” the U.S. envoy to North Korea said Friday. In its latest bout of saber-rattling, North Korea on Friday warned of the possibility of “strong physical counter-measures” against South Korea after the United Nations imposed tougher sanctions against the North earlier this week.

The threat against South Korea came a day after the North said it would carry out a new nuclear test and more long-range rocket launches as part of a new phase of confrontation with the United States. The statement Friday from North Korea’s Committee for Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said it would take action against South Korea if it “takes a direct part” in the U.N. sanctions. The South Korean Unification Ministry declined to comment specifically on the new threats from Pyongyang. It reiterated its stance that North Korea should refrain from further provocations.

“Now is a moment when I think all parties in the six-party process, in particular here, North Korea, should turn their attention to how to peacefully and diplomatically address challenges that concern them,” U.S. envoy Glyn Davies said from Beijing. The two Koreas have technically still been at war since the all-out conflict between them in the 1950s. Smaller scale clashes have occurred since then, most recently in November 2010 when North Korea shelled a South Korean island, killing several people. South Korea and the United States are often the focus of menacing language from Pyongyang, but the latest U.N. sanctions, a response to a long-range rocket launched last month by the North, appear to be agitating to North Korea. U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Thursday there are no “outward indications” that North Korea is about to conduct a nuclear test, but he admitted it would be hard to determine that in advance. “They have the capability, frankly, to conduct these tests in a way that makes it very difficult to determine whether or not they are doing it,” he said in a Pentagon press conference. “We are very concerned with North Korea’s continuing provocative behavior,” Panetta said, but he added that the United States is

And there shall be pestilence.

On the survival blog, I posted a message about the need to get the book ,'Herbal Antibiotic's', as Pharmaceutical antibiotics is said to no longer be effectual, and will cause billions, yes billions of death by a virus, Bactria etc. I posted it on this site, after reading this article I highly suggest you get the book herbal  antibiotics.

Antibiotic-resistant diseases pose ‘apocalyptic’ threat, top expert says
Posted on January 24, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol
Hospital super bugs such as MRSA are some of the best know antibiotic-resistant diseases, but MPs were warned about infections such as gonorrhea and TB that affect the general population.
January 24, 2013 – HEALTH - Britain’s most senior medical adviser has warned MPs that the rise in drug-resistant diseases could trigger a national emergency comparable to a catastrophic terrorist attack, pandemic flu or major coastal flooding. Dame Sally Davies, the chief medical officer, said the threat from infections that are resistant to front line antibiotics was so serious that the issue should be added to the government’s national risk register of civil emergencies. She described what she called an “apocalyptic scenario” where people going for simple operations in 20 years’ time die of routine infections “because we have run out of antibiotics.”


The register was established in 2008 to advise the public and businesses on national emergencies that Britain could face in the next five years. The highest priority risks on the latest register include a deadly flu outbreak, catastrophic terrorist attacks, and major flooding on the scale of 1953, the last occasion on which a national emergency was declared in the UK. Speaking to MPs on the Commons science and technology committee, Davies said she would ask the Cabinet Office to add antibiotic resistance to the national risk register in the light of an annual report on infectious disease she will publish in March. Davies declined to elaborate on the report, but said its publication would coincide with a government strategy to promote more responsible use of antibiotics among doctors and the clinical professions. “We need to get our act together in this country,” she told the committee. She told the Guardian: “There are few public health issues of potentially greater importance for society than antibiotic resistance. It means we are at increasing risk of developing infections that cannot be treated – but resistance can be managed. “That is why we will be publishing a new cross-government strategy and action plan to tackle this issue in early spring.”

The issue of drug resistance is as old as antibiotics themselves, and arises when drugs knock out susceptible infections, leaving hardier, resilient strains behind. The survivors then multiply, and over time can become unstoppable with front line medicines. Some of the best known are so-called hospital super bugs such as MRSA that are at the root of outbreaks among patients. “In the past, most people haven’t worried because we’ve always had new antibiotics to turn to,” said Alan Johnson, consultant clinical scientist at the Health Protection Agency. “What has changed is that the development pipeline is running dry. We don’t have new antibiotics that we can rely on in the immediate future or in the longer term.” Changes in modern medicine have exacerbated the problem by making patients more susceptible to infections. For example, cancer treatments weaken the immune system, and the use of catheters increases the chances of bugs entering the bloodstream.

 “We are becoming increasingly reliant on antibiotics in a whole range of areas of medicine. If we don’t have new antibiotics to deal with the problems of resistance we see, we are going to be in serious trouble,” Johnson added. The supply of new antibiotics has dried up for several reasons, but a major one is that drugs companies see greater profits in medicines that treat chronic conditions, such as heart disease, which patients must take for years or even decades. “There is a broken market model for making new antibiotics,” Davies told the MPs. –Guardian

And there shall be earth quakes. This one is not a big EQ, but what jumped out at me is the red alert prophecy , concerning the gulf of Mexico, esp. Louisiana And Texas. This EQ hit, and was felt in the area, and anything over a 4.0 is no small deal. Could it be this is a confirmation, a warning sign, to the red alert prophecy, it is at the area spoken and warned of , not long after the prophecy came forth, is this a warning from the lord to take the word serious I think it is, but we will see.




January 25, 2013 – TEXAS – The U.S. Geology Survey confirms a 4.1 magnitude earthquake hit East Texas around 1:01 a.m. The earthquake struck at a depth of 5 km (3.1 miles). Friday morning with an epicenter 2 miles from Timpson, Texas. KSLA News 12 phone lines started ringing after numerous people felt the ‘quake from Shelby County all the way to Bossier City. It woke me up out of a dead sleep,” said Amanda Jones who lives on Highway 7 E between Center and Joaquin. Jones tells us it felt stronger than the last earthquake that hit East Texas last summer. Jones says she is unsure about damage but will wait until the sun comes up to check. Jamie Ward in Center, TX tells us her house shook for at least 20 seconds. A man from Carthage, TX who was working the night shift at a gas plant says “it felt like it was coming from the bottom of my feet up.” He described what he felt “like the wind was shaking the travel trailer.” He tells us he looked for damage but didn’t see any. A woman who lives on W. 70th in Shreveport tells us she was laying in bed when “stuff started shaking.” Bossier City resident Sarah Rains, who lives off of Sligo Rd., says she and her roommate felt their trailer shake and thought it might have just been heavy winds. Katy Cash of Keatchie says she felt her house shake but thought she was just imagining it when her chandelier over the dining table started swaying. Katy tells us her mom in Florien, Louisiana also felt it. –KSLA

Prophecy Coming To Pass, The Kings Of The East, The Last Empire, The Power Is Shifting From West To East



We have bible prophecy coming to pass before our eyes. In the book of Revelations 'the kings of the east' they are the last super power.I have said over and over, that historically, the power shifts from East to West, and from West to east, we are in the shift right now, one step closer to the great Tribulation. This article gives the facts and I guess we may have to learn how to speak Chinese.



Does China Plan To Establish “China Cities” And “Special Economic Zones” All Over America?
By Michael, on January 22nd, 2013

 

Does China Plan To Establish Chinese Cities And Special Economic Zones All Over America?What in the world is China up to?  Over the past several years, the Chinese government and large Chinese corporations (which are often at least partially owned by the government) have been systematically buying up businesses, homes, farmland, real estate, infrastructure and natural resources all over America.  In some cases, China appears to be attempting to purchase entire communities in one fell swoop.  So why is this happening?  Is this some form of "economic colonization" that is taking place?  Some have speculated that China may be intending to establish "special economic zones" inside the United States modeled after the very successful Chinese city of Shenzhen.  Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village, but now it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.  Initially, these "special economic zones" were only established within China, but now the Chinese government has been buying huge tracts of land in foreign countries such as Nigeria and establishing special economic zones in those nations.  So could such a thing actually happen in America?  Well, according to Dr. Jerome Corsi, a plan being pushed by the Chinese Central Bank would set up "development zones" in the United States that would allow China to "establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work."  Under the plan, some of the $1.17 trillion that the U.S. owes China would be converted from debt to "equity".  As a result, "China would own U.S. businesses, U.S. infrastructure and U.S. high-value land, all with a U.S. government guarantee against loss."  Does all of this sound far-fetched?  Well, it isn't.  In fact, the economic colonization of America is already far more advanced than most Americans would dare to imagine.

So how in the world did we get to this point?  A few decades ago, the United States was the unchallenged economic powerhouse of the world and China was essentially a third world country.

So what happened?

Well, we entered into a whole bunch of extremely unfavorable "free trade" agreements, and countries such as China began to aggressively use "free trade" as an economic weapon against us.

Over the past decade, we have lost tens of thousands of businesses and millions of jobs to China.  When the final numbers for 2012 come out, our trade deficit with China for the year will be well over 300 billion dollars, and that will be the largest trade deficit that one country has had with another country in the history of the world.

Overall, the U.S. has run a trade deficit with China over the past decade that comes to more than 2.3 trillion dollars.  That 2.3 trillion dollars could have gone to U.S. businesses and U.S. workers, and in turn taxes would have been paid on all of that money.  But instead, all of that money went to China.

Rather than just sitting on all of that money, China has been lending much of it back to us - at interest.  We now owe China more than a trillion dollars, and our politicians are constantly pleading with China to lend more money to us so that we can finance our exploding debt.

Today, the U.S. government pays China approximately 100 million dollars a day in interest on the debt that we owe them.  Those that say that the U.S. debt "does not matter" are being incredibly foolish.

So thanks to our massive trade deficit and our exploding national debt, China is systematically getting wealthier and the United States is systematically getting poorer.

And now China is starting to use a lot of that wealth to aggressively expand their power and influence around the globe.

But isn't it more than a bit far-fetched to suggest that China may be planning to establish Chinese cities and special economic zones in America?

Not really.

Just look at what has already happened up in Canada.  It is well-known that the Chinese population of Vancouver, Canada has absolutely exploded in recent years.  In fact, the Vancouver suburb of Richmond is now approximately half Chinese.  The following is an excerpt from a BBC article...

    Richmond is North America's most Asian city - 50% of residents here identify themselves as Chinese. But it's not just here that the Chinese community in British Columbia (BC) - some 407,000 strong - has left its mark. All across Vancouver, Chinese-Canadians have helped shape the local landscape.

A similar thing is happening in many communities along the west coast of the United States.  In fact, Chinese citizens purchased one out of every ten homes that were sold in the state of California in 2011.

But in other areas of the United States, the Chinese are approaching things much more systematically.

For example, as I have written about previously, a Chinese group identified as "Sino-Michigan Properties LLC" has purchased 200 acres of land near the town of Milan, Michigan.  Their stated goal is to build a "China City" that has artificial lakes, a Chinese cultural center and hundreds of housing units for Chinese citizens.

In other instances, large chunks of real estate in major U.S. cities that are down on their luck are being snapped up by Chinese investors.  Just check out what a Fortune article from a while back says has been happening over in Toledo, Ohio...

    In March 2011, Chinese investors paid $2.15 million cash for a restaurant complex on the Maumee River in Toledo, Ohio. Soon they put down another $3.8 million on 69 acres of newly decontaminated land in the city's Marina District, promising to invest $200 million in a new residential-commercial development. That September, another Chinese firm spent $3 million for an aging hotel across a nearby bridge with a view of the minor league ballpark.

Toledo is being promoted to Chinese investors as a "5-star logistics region".  From Toledo it is very easy to get to Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Columbus and Indianapolis...

    With a population of 287,000, Toledo is only the fourth largest city in Ohio, but it lies at the junction of two important highways -- I-75 and I-80/90. "My vision is to make Toledo a true international city," Toledo's Mayor Mike Bell told the Toledo Blade.

But some of these deals appear to be about far more than just making "investments".  According to the Idaho Statesman, a Chinese company known as Sinomach (which is actually controlled by the Chinese government) was actually interested in developing a 50 square mile self-sustaining "technology zone" south of the Boise airport...

    A Chinese national company is interested in developing a 10,000- to 30,000-acre technology zone for industry, retail centers and homes south of the Boise Airport.

    Officials of the China National Machinery Industry Corp. have broached the idea — based on a concept popular in China today — to city and state leaders.

The article suggested that this "technology zone" would be modeled after similar projects that already exist in China, and that Chinese officials were conducting similar negotiations with other U.S. states as well...

    Sinomach is not looking only at Idaho.

    The company sent delegations to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania this year to talk about setting up research and development bases and industrial parks. It has an interest in electric transmission projects and alternative energy as well.

    The technology zone proposal follows a model of science, technology and industrial parks in China — often fully contained cities with all services included.

Thankfully the deal in Idaho appears to be stalled for now, but could we soon see China establish special economic zones in other communities all around America?

The Chinese certainly do seem to be laying the groundwork for something.  They have been voraciously gobbling up important infrastructure all over the country.  The following comes from a recent American Free Press article...

    In addition to already owning vital ports in Long Beach, Calif. and Boston, Mass., the China Ocean Shipping Company is eyeing major ports on the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico. China also owns access to ports at the entry and exit points of the Panama Canal.

    And due to fiscal woes plaguing many American cities and states, U.S. legislators have been actively seeking out Chinese investors. In one of the worst cases, Baton Rouge, La., Mayor Kip Holden offered the Chinese government ownership and operating rights to a new toll way system if the Chinese would provide the funding to build it.

Does it make sense for the Chinese to own some of our most important ports?

Isn't there a national security risk?

Sadly, there isn't much of anything that our politicians won't sell these days as long as someone is willing to flash a lot of cash.

The Chinese have also been busy buying up important real estate on the east coast as a recent Forbes article explained….

    According to a recent report in the New York Times, investors from China are “snapping up luxury apartments” and are planning to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on commercial and residential projects like Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn. Chinese companies also have signed major leases at the Empire State Building and at 1 World Trade Center, the report said.

But it is not only just land and infrastructure that the Chinese have been buying up.

They have also been purchasing rights to vital oil and natural gas deposits all over the United States.

There have been two Chinese companies that have been primarily involved in this effort.

The first is the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC).  According to Wikipedia, CNOOC is 100 percent owned by the Chinese government…

    CNOOC Group is a state-owned oil company, fully owned by the Government of the People’s Republic of China, and the State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) performs the rights and obligations of shareholder on behalf of the government.

The second is Sinopec Corporation.  Sinopec Group is the largest shareholder (approx. 75% ownership) in Sinopec Corporation.  And as the Sinopec website tells us, Sinopec Group is fully owned by the Chinese government…

    Sinopec Group, the largest shareholder of Sinopec Corp., is a super-large petroleum and petrochemical group incorporated by the State in 1998 based on the former China Petrochemical Corporation. Funded by the State, it is a State authorized investment arm and State-owned controlling company.

So whenever you see CNOOC or Sinopec, you can replace those names with the Chinese government.  The Chinese government essentially runs both of those companies.

And as you can see from the following list compiled by the Wall Street Journal, those two companies have been extremely aggressive in buying up rights to oil and natural gas all over the nation...

    Colorado: Cnooc gained a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming in a $1.27 billion pact with Chesapeake Energy Corp.

    Louisiana: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 265,000 acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale after a broader $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy.

    Michigan: Sinopec gained a one-third interest in 350,000 acres in a larger $2.5 billion deal with Devon Energy.

    Ohio: Sinopec acquired a one-third stake in Devon Energy’s 235,000 Utica Shale acres in a larger $2.5 billion deal.

    Oklahoma: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 215,000 acres in a broader $2.5 billion deal with Devon Energy.

    Texas: Cnooc acquired a one-third interest in Chesapeake Energy’s 600,000 acres in the Eagle Ford Shale in a $2.16-billion deal.

    Wyoming: Cnooc has a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming after a $1.27 billion pact with Chesapeake Energy. Sinopec gained a one-third interest in Devon Energy’s 320,000 acres as part of a larger $2.5 billion deal.

    Gulf of Mexico: Cnooc Ltd. separately acquired minority stakes in some of Statoil ASA’s leases as well as six of Nexen Inc.’s deep-water wells.

So why is the U.S. government allowing this?

That is a very good question.

For a nation that purports to be pursuing "energy independence", we sure do have a funny way of going about things.

Unfortunately, the sad truth is that China is absolutely mopping the floor with the United States on the global economic stage.  China is rising and America is in an advanced state of decline.  Global economic power has shifted dramatically and most Americans still don't understand what has happened.

The following are 44 more signs of how dominant the economy of China has become...

1. A Chinese firm recently made a $2.6 billion offer to buy movie theater chain AMC.

2. A different Chinese firm made a $1.8 billion offer to buy aircraft maker Hawker Beechcraft.

3. In December it was announced that a Chinese group would be purchasing AIG's plane leasing unit for $4.23 billion.

4. It was recently announced that the Federal Reserve will now allow Chinese banks to buy up American banks.

5. A $190 million bridge project up in Alaska was awarded to a Chinese firm.

6. A $400 million contract to renovate the Alexander Hamilton bridge in New York was awarded to a Chinese firm.

7. A $7.2 billion contract to construct a new bridge between San Francisco and Oakland was awarded to a Chinese firm.

8. The uniforms for the U.S. Olympic team were made in China.

9. 85 percent of all artificial Christmas trees are made in China.

10. The new World Trade Center tower is going to include glass that has been imported from China.

11. The new Martin Luther King memorial on the National Mall was made in China.

12. In 2001, American consumers spent 102 billion dollars on products made in China.  In 2011, American consumers spent 399 billion dollars on products made in China.

13. The United States spends about 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that China spends on goods and services from the United States.

14. According to the New York Times, a Jeep Grand Cherokee that costs $27,490 in the United States costs about $85,000 in China thanks to all the tariffs.

15. The Chinese economy has grown 7 times faster than the U.S. economy has over the past decade.

16. The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

17. The United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs per month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

18. Overall, the United States has lost a total of more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities since 2001.

19. According to the Economic Policy Institute, America is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.

20. Between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Michigan were lost.

21. In 2010, China produced more than twice as many automobiles as the United States did.

22. Since the auto industry bailout, approximately 70 percent of all GM vehicles have been built outside the United States.

23. After being bailed out by U.S. taxpayers, General Motors is currently involved in 11 joint ventures with companies owned by the Chinese government.  The price for entering into many of these “joint ventures” was a transfer of “state of the art technology” from General Motors to the communist Chinese.

24. Back in 1998, the United States had 25 percent of the world’s high-tech export market and China had just 10 percent. Ten years later, the United States had less than 15 percent and China’s share had soared to 20 percent.

25. The United States has lost more than a quarter of all of its high-tech manufacturing jobs over the past ten years.

26. China’s number one export to the U.S. is computer equipment.

27. The number one U.S. export to China is "scrap and trash".

28. The U.S. trade deficit with China is now more than 28 times larger than it was back in 1990.

29. Back in 1985, the U.S. trade deficit with China was just 6 million dollars for the entire year.  For the month of November 2012 alone, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 28.9 billion dollars.

30. China now consumes more energy than the United States does.

31. China is now the leading manufacturer of goods in the entire world.

32. China uses more cement than the rest of the world combined.

33. China is now the number one producer of wind and solar power on the entire globe.

34. Today, China produces nearly twice as much beer as the United States does.

35. Right now, China is producing more than three times as much coal as the United States does.

36. China now produces 11 times as much steel as the United States does.

37. China produces more than 90 percent of the global supply of rare earth elements.

38. China is now the number one supplier of components that are critical to the operation of U.S. defense systems.

39. A recent investigation by the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services found more than one million counterfeit Chinese parts in the Department of Defense supply chain.

40. 15 years ago, China was 14th in the world in published scientific research articles.  But now, China is expected to pass the United States and become number one very shortly.

41. China now awards more doctoral degrees in engineering each year than the United States does.

42. According to one study, the Chinese economy already has roughly the same amount of purchasing power as the U.S. economy does.

43. According to the IMF, China will pass the United States and will become the largest economy in the world in 2016.

44. Nobel economist Robert W. Fogel of the University of Chicago is projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040 if current trends continue.

Without the "globalization" of the world economy, none of this would have ever happened.  But instead of admitting our mistakes and fixing them, our politicians continue to press for even more "free trade" and even more integration with communist nations such as China.

In fact, according to Dr. Jerome Corsi, the U.S. government has already set up 257 "foreign trade zones" all over America.  These "foreign trade zones" are apparently given "special U.S. customs treatment" and are used to promote "free trade"…

    Corsi noted that the U.S. government has created 257 foreign trade zones, or FTZs, throughout the United States, designed to extend special U.S. customs treatment to U.S. plants engaged in international-trade-related activities.

    The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout the continent of North America.

    “There is nothing in the U.S. government’s description of FTZs that would prevent a foreign government, like China, from operating a shell U.S. company that is in reality owned and financed by the Chinese government and operated through a Chinese government-owned corporation,” Corsi wrote.

Sadly, we are probably going to see a whole lot more of this in the years ahead.

According to Corsi, a professor of economics at Tsighua University in Beijing named Yu Qiao has suggested the following plan as a way to transform the debt that the United States owes China into something more "tangible"...

    China would negotiate with the U.S. government to create a “crisis relief facility,” or CRF. The CRF “would be used alongside U.S. federal efforts to stabilize the banking system and to invest in capital-intensive infrastructure projects such as high-speed railroad from Boston to Washington, D.C.
    China would pool a portion of its holdings of Treasury bonds under the CFR umbrella to convert sovereign debt into equity. Any CFR funds that were designated for investment in U.S. corporations would still be owned and managed by U.S. equity holders, with the Asians holding minority equity shares “that would, like preferred stock, be convertible.”
    The U.S. government would act as a guarantor, “providing a sovereign guarantee scheme to assure the investment principal of the CRF against possible default of targeted companies or projects”.
    The Federal Reserve would set up a special account to supply the liquidity the CRF would require to swap sovereign debt into industrial investment in the United States.

Apparently the Bank of China really likes this plan and would like to see something like this implemented.

In the years ahead, perhaps many of you will end up working in a "special economic zone" for a Chinese company on a project that is being financially guaranteed by the U.S. government.

If that sounds like a form of slavery to you, the truth is that you are probably not too far off the mark.

The borrower is the servant of the lender, and we should have never allowed ourselves to get into so much debt.

Now we will pay the price.

To get an idea of how much the world has changed in recent years, just check out this incredible photo which contrasts the decline of Detroit over the years with the amazing rise of Shanghai, China.

Things did not have to turn out this way.  Unfortunately, we made decades of incredibly foolish decisions and we wrecked the greatest economic machine that the world has ever seen.

Now the future for America looks really bleak.

Or could it be that I am being too pessimistic?  Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below...

IT RAINS ON THE JUST AND THE UNJUST-David Wilkerson

David Wilkerson Today

A Ministry of World Challenge



TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2013



IT RAINS ON THE JUST AND THE UNJUST

by David Wilkerson

[May 19, 1931 - April 27, 2011]



I would be lying if I told you that Christians will observe sorrow, trouble,

unemployment and depression on all sides while they themselves remain safe

within a cozy cocoon of health and wealth. The Bible says God causes the rain

to fall on both the just and the unjust (Matthew 5:45). Job was holy—yet he

suffered! But just as God brought Job out of his affliction, so He will bring

us out even though we, too, will go through the fire.



Hundreds of ministers are meeting to pray in different cities, and the same

confession is heard: "Never have so many been so deeply tested. Satan has come

like a flood, with trouble, hardship, deep sorrow and pain befalling the

godly."



Satan was Job's troubler and he is your troubler. Could it be that he has stood

again before God and issued a great accusation against the last-days church? He

might have challenged God, "It is the last hour, but You have no true church.

You have no spotless bride. There are no wise virgins; in fact, most of them

are asleep. Look at them—materialistic, self-centered, grasping for riches

and the good life. Listen to their teachers telling them they need not suffer,

that all things are theirs for the asking.



"Take down Your wall of protection, God! Let me put them to the test. You won't

even have a holy remnant left. I'll take away their employment. I'll smite them

with sorrows. I'll pour out a spirit of fear and despondency, and flood them

with temptations. You will see this last, pampered generation fold. There are

no Jobs in this church. They are spiritual wimps!"



Beloved, this is why the Scripture says, "Woe to the inhabiters of the earth

and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath,

because he knoweth that he hath but a short time" (Revelation 12:12).



In the midst of your trial, some of you already have adopted the despairing

language of Job. Your heart cries out, "God, what did I do wrong? I don't

understand why this calamity has fallen on me when I loved You most, my walk

was holy, my heart pure, and my spirit was longing after You. It seems like the

closer I draw to You, the deeper I fall into trouble and the more sorrows

come.”



We do not realize how important it is to God that we trust Him through all the

floods of trouble that come upon us from hell. You see, the devil cannot touch

you or test you unless God first lets down the wall and allows it.

We Are Not Of This World, But We Are In It- We Are Kept From The Evil One





Joh 17:14  I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Joh 17:15  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

Joh 17:16  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Joh 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Joh 17:18  As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

Wesley:

John 17:15
That thou wouldest take them out of the world - Not yet: but that thou wouldest keep them from the evil one - Who reigns therein.

VWS:

John 17:15

From the evil (τοῦ πονηροῦ)

Or, the evil one. This rendering is according to John's usage. See 1Jo_2:13, 1Jo_2:14; 1Jo_3:12; 1Jo_5:18, 1Jo_5:19; and compare Joh_12:31; Joh_14:30; Joh_16:11. From (ἐκ), literally, out of, means out of the hands of.

RWP:

John 17:15

Shouldest take (arēis). First aorist active subjunctive of airō (liquid verb).

From the evil one (ek tou ponērou). Ablative case with ek, but can mean the evil man, Satan, or the evil deed. See same ambiguity in Mat_6:13. But in 1Jo_5:18 ho ponēros is masculine (the evil one). Cf. Rev_3:10.

Clarke:

John 17:15

That thou shouldest take them out of the world - They must not yet leave the land of Judea: they had not as yet borne their testimony there, concerning Christ crucified and risen again from the dead. To take them away before this work was finished would not answer the gracious design of God. -

1.         Christ does not desire that his faithful apostles should soon die, and be taken to God. No: but that they may live long, labor long, and bring forth much fruit.

2.         He does not intimate that they should seclude themselves from the world by going to the desert, or to the cloisters; but that they should continue in and among the world, that they may have the opportunity of recommending the salvation of God.

3.         Christ only prays that while they are in the world, employed in the work of the ministry, they may be preserved from the influence, του πονηρου, of the evil one, the devil, who had lately entered into Judas, Joh_13:27, and who would endeavor to enter into them, ruin their souls, and destroy their work. A devil without can do no harm; but a devil within ruins all.

I like what Clarke says the best, we are not to hide, call it quits, the battles, temptations , trials and tribulations, are a certain thing, but we are kept out of the overcoming hands of Satan, we are to boldly minister and not hide. This is why I say, The Home Mission, the Christian hone stead, is not to run and hide, but to be on the front lines when all hell breaks loose.

Many are thinking of hiding places, places to flee, but listen what ever you do, wherever you go, or wherever you stay, you have a job to do. The text has the great commission in it; we are to proclaim the gospel message wherever we are.

True , when the stuff hits the fan, and cities are in flames, people shooting one another, uprisings taking place, only for this short time, are we to close the door behind us, till a month or so passes, after we are to report for duty, soul winning, that is why you will be spared, if you are, I have said this many times.

The mid Trib, once antichrist comes and says he is God in the temple, and the mark of the beast is implemented than we are to be a church that is underground, on the run, than we can hide, but not till than, but even in that time we will be doing the fathers business of winning souls, helping people, instructing people,  it may be a underground movement, but forward progress, movement it will be.

In the text the Lord’s Prayer, the lord Jesus is praying we are not taken out of the world, another pre trib rapture thought. We are to be faithful unto death. This is a call to the patience of the saints, another pre trib debunker to think on.

We have nothing to fear, we are prayed for, our intercessor is sure, and he is, and will always be on the throne. Fear not , fear nothing, fear not the days ahead, no fear gear, your armor, your spirit sword and remember what Revelations says, " for they over came the devil by the blood of the lamb , and the word of our testimony. That does not mean we will not die, if captured and refuse to take the mark of the beast, we will die in that case. However, until than, this is all out war.

What a comfort to know, even if we do not know what to do right now, we know we are to worship and serve the lord while we are waiting, and after all is known and America falls, we do not change the great commission, that is the reason we are put on earth, kept from the evil one, as Clarke said, others, we are to be kept safe long enough to fulfill our ministry, once our ministry, call is fulfilled, we who are alive and remain will than be ruptured, those who die for the cause of Christ are in heaven.

The martyred ones are the ones who come with the messiah at his second coming, I taught on this little known fact in detail. The rest who are not put to death are in heaven for the 1000 years. It is in the word, crystal clear, not my own interpretation, its all in there, read it for yourself.

We have a great hope, we have victory in Christ, and we will forge ahead until like Paul said near his death, “I have run the race, I have fought the good fight, I have fulfilled my ministry, and I have not been disobedient to the heavenly vision.

We walk in the simplicity that the lord has, and still prays for us, so we can do ministry, and we cannot be taken over by the devil. What a grand time of ministry is ahead, dangerous, unknown, but our job is known, and it is simply Others.







It Is Ok To Question The Lord, And Say How Long O' Lord, But.....





Job 33:13  Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.

Job 33:14  For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

Job 33:15  In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

Job 33:16  Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

Job 33:17  That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

Clarke:

Job 33:13

Why dost thou strive against him? - Is it not useless to contend with God? Can he do any thing that is not right? As to his giving thee any account of the reasons why he deals thus and thus with thee, or any one else, thou needest not expect it; he is sovereign, and is not to be called to the bar of his creatures. It is sufficient for thee to know that “he is too wise to err, and too good to be unkind.”

That is the whole message in a nut shell, what Clarke wrote is my message, I will add a few thoughts and observations and show other verses and commentary on this thought, It is Ok to say why lord, let this cup pass from me, I can not take anymore, what is happening lord, this is all fine, it is the reason for the one on one, secret prayer closet, to tell the lord, pour out our whole heart on big matters and small things, it is where we get comfort, and where we can bare our secret feelings and pain in private , as we have an audience with the king.

The end result is we end with praise and we end by saying you are the almighty, you know all, I know you have everything under control, and all happens by your grace, and you know what’s best, not me, I fully accept thy will.

Meyer:

Job 33:1-33

 the Interpreter

Job_33:1-33

It is not wonderful that Elihu has been mistaken for the Mediator Himself, so helpfully does he interpose between Job and his Maker. He dwells especially on his own likeness to Job in his manhood, and quotes this as the reason why he could specially help him: I also am formed out of the clay. So also our High Priest is man. Elihu takes up Job’s words protesting his innocence, and he insists that Job was not right in those protestations, or in the conclusions that he drew from them.

Then follows one of the grandest passages in the book. Elihu tells how God speaks in nature and through conscience, and is often disregarded; and how then he speaks by revelation, opening the ears of men to withdraw them from their purpose. He shows that God often lays a man upon a bed of pain, that He may speak to his heart. Happy is the afflicted if an interpreter stands beside him to point the path to repentance. Finally, broken and penitent, he turns back to God, and sees His face with joy, and sings before men the story of his restoration. Thus Elihu argues that affliction is often sent as discipline to read to man God’s deepest truth.

That is the number one reason I pray , I ask the lord, have I offended you, have I offended another person, show me my sin, so I can repent and become clean, but also, Lord show me what to do, make your will known, grant me wisdom on this issue, that thing, I am helpless without you making the path crystal clear to your perfect will, I need you to make your ways, your path known so I can walk in obedience.

 And it is where I anguish and weep over our country, and those I intercede for. I than stop after praise, as I started with praise, hollowed be they name, I stand, kneel and wait in silence, prayer is a two way channel, the lord still speaks, and he does many times. What troubles me and I am sure you dear reader, is when you know you have the faith, you know the lord could appear in front of your eyes, and as you wait, sometimes, many times ..Nothing, no word, no direction, no nothing. This is common to us all. He is Father, we are his children, he speaks when he speaks, and the lord does not waist his breath, his word when it comes is real, alive and active.

Most of the time, the lord speaks revelations to me by his word, so there is no wondering if the word is in  part, when the word is illuminated to you, rest assure it is in full.

 I have come to learn, no matter how much faith I come to prayer with, the lord is silent sometimes, because he has something to say, and it is in his word, it can dot be disputed, or wondered if it was a true word, when it comes by the word, this is important to understand. Many wait and await for a mystical experience, many times the prescribed method is the word, and by the sure word we are taught, spoken to, corrected, encouraged, given deep insight, the word is supreme above all human thought, prophecy, visions, dreams, it is inherent and with out fault, we are sinners saved by grace, all spiritual gifts are in part, this the lord chooses many times to say, read my word and I will speak, it alone is 100% true and it alone is alive and active, far beyond the human mind.

I can tell you, if you enter prayer and with an honest heart ask the Holy Spirit to shine a bright light on your sin and misgivings, he will show you, plain and simple, it is real, and it can sting. It is needed; as many times we offended, and do not even know it, in prayer the Holy Spirit will make it clear, so you can get clean, as David said.

Create in me a clean heart O lord and renew a right spirit within me..

If you are not hearing from the lord, if you are perplexed, know this, in the lords time he will make all known you need to know, one step at a time. Be encouraged, the lord hears every prayer, he sees every teardrop, he knows your perplexity, he loves you and he is lord of all.

Seeing Your Perils As Pearls, How?




2Co 11:26  In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

GREEK perils;

G2794
κίνδυνος
kindunos
Thayer Definition:
1) a danger, a peril

Websters Deff.;

Peril
PER'IL, n. [L. periculum, from Gr. to try, to attempt, that is, to strain; an attempt, danger, hazard; to pass, to thrust in or transfix; L. experior; Eng. experience.]

1. Danger; risk; hazard; jeopardy; particular exposure of person or property to injury,loss or destruction from any cause whatever.

In perils of waters; in perils of robbers. 2 Cor 11.

2. Danger denounced; particular exposure; You do it at your peril, or at the peril of your father's displeasure.

Some of us are in great perils now, 2013 is the year of OG, ayin Gamiel, Robbers, gangs, violence. This year will be just that. A dramatic increase in violence, thief’s, robbers, great danger. The simplest deff. of peril is danger. Webster brings out more, but in short, dangerous times a head. The lord said it would be dangerous times, near the end days.

I read Ps 91 every day, and so should you. The lord allowed Paul, as the lord will allow us, to go trough these dangers, not around them.

2Ti 3:11  Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

2Ti 4:17  Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

Heb 11:32  And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

Heb 11:33  Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

Heb 11:34  Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

Heb 11:35  Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

Heb 11:36  And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

Heb 11:37  They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

Heb 11:38  (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

Heb 11:39  And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

Heb 11:40  God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

The O.T. says, we will go through waters and not drown, we shall go through fire and not be burned, but many did , and right now in the world many are, so how do we approach this ability to turn our perils coming into pearls?

It is only by having the heavenly perspective, understanding all we face and will face, can not be compared to the FUTURE glory that awaits us, in the balance, Paul speaks of this, on one side afflictions, sufferings, perils, on the other side of the scale the future promise of eternal glory in heaven, Paul said it can not even come close, these bad things, in the comparison of eternal glory, that is having the heavenly perspective.

Jesus talked of the heavenly perspective, he likened the kingdom of the lord to a pearl of great price, having this sight, understanding, helps us to endure anything, it teaches us to look at our perils as pearls.

Mat 13:44  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

Mat 13:45  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

Mat 13:46  Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

We can get to the place where we see all we go through as pearls of great price. In the New Jerusalem the twelve gates have twelve large pearls, we will see them, we can see them by faith now, we can, as we have the kingdom of the lord is within, that pearl is not cheap, it is of great price, it was bought, paid for my the blood of Jesus.

Having the heavenly, and not worldly perspective, is the way to start seeing in the now, and the days ahead ,our Perils and Pearl, may it be so today.




Getting A deeper Revelation Of Grace





2Ti 2:1  Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

VWS:

2 Timothy 2:1

Therefore (οὖν)

In view of what has been said in the previous chapter.

Be strong (ἐνδυναμοῦ)
In Paul, Rom_4:20; Eph_6:10; Phi_4:13. Lit. be strengthened inwardly.
In the grace (ἐν τῇ χάριτι)

Grace is the inward source of strength. Comp. the association of grace and strength in 2Co_12:9.

2Co 12:9  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Clarke:

2 Timothy 2:1

Be strong in the grace - Though the genuine import of the word grace is favor, yet it often implies an active principle communicated from God; light directing how to act, and power enabling to act according to the light.

Barnes:

2 Timothy 2:1

Thou therefore - In view of the fact stated in the previous chapter, that many had turned away from the apostle, and had forsaken the paths of truth.
Be strong in the grace which is in Christ Jesus; - compare the notes at Eph_6:10. The meaning is, Be strong, relying on the grace which the Lord Jesus only can impart.

JFB;

Thou therefore — following my example (2Ti_1:8, 2Ti_1:12), and that of ONESIPHORUS (2Ti_1:16-18), and shunning that of those who forsook me (2Ti_1:15).

My son — Children ought to imitate their father.

Be strong — literally, “be invested with power.” Have power, and show thyself to have it; implying an abiding state of power.

In the grace — the element IN which the believer’s strength has place. Compare 2Ti_1:7, “God hath given us the spirit of power.”

Gill;

2 Timothy 2:1
Thou therefore, my son,.... The illative particle, "therefore", shows the connection between this and the preceding chapter; the appellation, "thou, my son", expresses the apostle's tender affection for Timothy, and is the rather used to engage his attention to the advice he was about to give him; which is, that since he had received the true grace of God, and unfeigned faith dwelt in him; and since he had such gifts, qualifying him for the work of the ministry; and since so good a thing as the glorious Gospel of the blessed God was committed to his trust; and since there were so many who had departed from it, and so few that abode by it, he would have him

be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus; by which may be meant either the free favour and love of God in Christ, Rom_8:39 which is in itself always strong, immovable, and unalterable; and is the strength and security of the saints, though they have not always the same strong believing views of it; and to be strong in it, is to be rooted and grounded in it, and to have a strong sense and firm persuasion of interest in it, and that nothing can separate from it: or else the Gospel, which is a declaration of grace, and is in Christ, and comes by him; and to be strong in it, is to preach it boldly, to defend it bravely, and courageously oppose every error and heresy, and every abettor thereof; and it also becomes every private believer to hold it fast, stand fast in it, abide by it, and earnestly contend for it; and so the phrase may stand opposed to תקיף באוריתא, or גבר, "one strong in the law", which is so often used by the Jews (d): or rather by grace is meant the fullness of grace which is in Christ, for the supply of his people; for in that grace which is in him, and not in that which is in themselves, should their dependence be.

 It is very agreeable to be strong in grace received, in point of exercise, but not in point of contentment; so as to rest satisfied with the present measure of it, without growing in it, and going on to perfection; and much less in point of consolation, so as to derive peace and comfort from it; and still less in point of trust and confidence in it; for it is but a creature, though a very glorious one, being the workmanship of God, and very variable as to its exercise, and as yet imperfect; and not that, but the object of it, is to be trusted in: though indeed a person's enjoyment of everlasting glory and happiness may be strongly concluded from the work of grace which is begun in him; that being an immortal seed, and a well of living water springing up into eternal life; and with which glory is inseparably connected.

But grace in Christ is what believers should always have recourse unto, and exercise faith on; and not only believe that there is such a fullness of grace in Christ, which they have both heard of and seen, and which they know is laid up for them, and given to them, and is sufficient for them; but they should go forth out of themselves unto it, and draw water with joy out of the full wells of salvation in Christ: and this grace is of a strengthening nature, both to ministers of the word, to enable them to fulfill their ministry, to bear reproaches, afflictions, and persecution for the Gospel, and the infirmities of weak brethren; and to private believers, to strengthen them against every corruption, temptation, and snare, to exercise every grace, and discharge every branch of duty.

The meaning of Grace Webster’s dictionary old edition.

 Appropriately, the free unmerited love and favor of God, the spring and source of all the benefits men receive from him.

And if by grace, then it is no more of works. Rom 11.

 Favorable influence of God; divine influence or the influence of the spirit, in renewing the heart and restraining from sin.

My grace is sufficient for thee. 2 Cor 12.

 The application of Christ's righteousness to the sinner.

Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. Rom 5.

Spiritual instruction, improvement and edification. Eph 4:29.

Apostleship, or the qualifications of an apostle. Eph 3:8.

Favor; mercy; pardon

There are more definitions, but this will suffice to make my point about GRACE. We have all learned of it, we all know the basic def. is unmerited favor, but as we see what grace means it is much deeper than that. It had to be a quality for an Apostle, it is a instructor, it is grace to others, from grace we have received, the strength of grace as we read the verses, I want to narrow this teaching down to the Strength of Grace.

We see the verse quoted in most of the commentaries and in Webster’s def. the verse.

2Co 12:9  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Paul learned this lesson well and that is why he is now telling Timothy be strong in grace. It is unmerited favor it is from our lord; it is a way to achieve strength, power, confidence, in our lord, Grace. What a powerful word, what a powerful attribute of our lord, grace, seems simple enough, but as you see it may be a tad more than you have studied and learned. Grace is so deep, it is said so often, we start to make light of grace, we say grace before we eat, in the gospel message we hear of grace, but grace is much more than a word used every day. When something is said and used every day, the mind tends to not focus on what is being said, what is meant. Tradition is good, if it is from the bible, but tradition no matter how good can become stale, if we do not go deeper into the root of it. Grace is a word that must be fully understood.

In the O.T. the word says say Grace, Grace to the mountains, this is powerful, saying the word grace to the lords creation. While the earth groans in the birth pains, let us yell grace, grace to the mountains, let us apply grace in all out works, or they are dead, law vrs. Grace. Jesus fulfilled the law, we are in the dispensation of the grace covenant, Jesus blood does what the law could never do, it is opposite of the law, the law is the tutor, teacher to show us how no one could ever attain a proper standing with the lord, the blood of animals could not do it.

Jesus and the rich man, the rich man said I have observed all the laws fro my youth, Jesus said, sell all you have and give it to the poor, we all know the end of that story, the rich man walked away, Grace vrs. the N.T. Grace Law. The N.T. is to be accomplished only by grace, but there are rules, and we must run in grace and strive to walk in the way of the N.T. law,.

2Ti 2:5  And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

Law, the N.T. is there a problem in this a contradiction, NO lets take a look at that verse.

Gill:

2 Timothy 2:5
And if a man also strive for masteries,.... In the Olympic games, by running, wrestling, leaping, &c.

yet is he not crowned; with a corruptible, fading crown, a crown made of herbs and leaves of trees, as parsley, laurel, &c.

except he strive lawfully; according to the laws and rules fixed for those exercises; so no man that calls himself a Christian, minister, or any other, can expect the crown of life, the prize of the high calling of God, except he runs the race set before him, in the right way; looking to Christ, the mark, pressing through all difficulties, towards the prize, and holds on and out unto the end.

2 Timothy 2:5

If a man also strive for masteries - Εαν δε και αθλῃ τις· If a man contend in the public games - the Olympic or Isthmian games among the Greeks, so often alluded to and particularly explained in the notes on 1Co_9:24-26, to which the reader is referred for a full illustration of this verse.
Is he not crowned - Though he may have conquered, except he strive lawfully - unless he enter according to the rules of the athlete, and act as these direct. No man, however zealous he may have been, is to expect the Well done, good and faithful servant, from Jesus Christ, unless he have labored in the word and doctrine, preached the truth as it is in Jesus, and built up the Church upon Him who is its only Foundation.

You think the N.T. call to holiness is easy, Jesus said if you hate someone your a murder, look at a women with lust your an adulterer, this seems imposable, that’s the key, it is, in comes grace, the blood and the enabling power of The holy Spirit. We can say, ‘I will do enough just to make it into heaven’, and many will, those who want to strive for masteries, go the full way, full denial of self, it is as the commentaries said, like an athlete, it takes putting to death the deeds of the flesh. We are promised we have been given all from the lord to live out a holy life, but only if we use the tools, and one of the tools is the strength form a deep insight and revelation of Grace.

1Pe 1:15  But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

1Pe 1:16  Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

1Pe 1:17  And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

1Pe 4:1  Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

1Pe 4:12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

1Pe 4:13  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Do you see why I always write and preach that the N.T. is a blood covenant of suffering, it is in the word.

2Pe 1:3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:


There it is, the bible fact we can if we choose to strive for the masteries, we can live a holy life if we choose to, we have been given everything.

The word will never tell us something we should do and can do, if we were not given grace strength to do it that is striving lawfully, according to the rules. If the word says be ye holy, that means we can be holy, the word will never say we must live the Christian life if it were not a possibility I am not talking about perfection, but on going sanctification, by the strength of Grace, now I hope you never look at that word Grace the same again and understand we must strive lawfully, according to the rules, and we have been enabled to live it, if we choose to do so.
