The Church has many adversaries.  Can my sword sleep, then, in my hand?  Never!

We have too many dead men in the pulpits giving out too many dead sermons to too many dead people.

May we live with eternity's values in view.

     "Days of sorrow and mourning are coming upon the land. Do not be taken by surprise; have I not told you to prepare? Have I not warned through My watchmen, prophets and lovers of The Truth?"

    "The life of the redeemed is a life of sacrifice, trial, testing, tragedy and triumph. Expect no less than to pick up your cross and follow Me. Only from Me will you receive strength to endure; to praise Me in the midst of each circumstance. Praise Me, grumble not for I inhabit the praises of My people."

    "The people of the nations have many gods; gods of mammon, power, position, fame, fortune...many gods while The One True God is ignored. Very soon the day will come when men' hearts will fail them for fear as they come to realize their ignorance. Ignorance yes, for they have ignored The One Who alone could have delivered them from the judgment that is to come."

    "Come to the cross. Come to the cross and receive from Me forgiveness and regeneration of spirit to do what I have called you to do. My cross brings healing, hope and strength for the battle...things you will need in days ahead. Spend time at the cross. Prepare now so that the great day of The LORD does not take you unaware, caught off guard and unprepared."

Zephaniah 1:14-15....'the great day of the LORD is near, near and coming quickly. The cry on the day of The LORD is bitter. The Mighty Warrior shouts His battle cry. A day of wrath is that day. A day of trouble and distress. A day of darkness and gloom. A day of clouds and thick darkness.'

Joel 2:30-31...'I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth. Blood, fire and columns of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and terrible day of The LORD.'

    "Beware of the leaven in the House of God. Guard your hearts and minds. Beware of the leaven in the House of God."

9 April, 2018
    "Examine your hearts. Many hearts have grown cold, forgetting their first love, forgetting that I AM. Examine your hearts that sin will not take root and choke out the goodness of your God. Roots of bitterness have taken hold of many. Do not allow bitterness to rob you, child of God, of a relationship with Me"

      For sometime I have felt my calling as a watchman on the wall was coming to an end. Today is bittersweet....leaving behind the familiar to embark on unfamiliar territory as I continue my journey of faithfulness. I do not know where the LORD will lead but I trust completely, and having taken hold of His hand I  move forward.

"The LORD says to His people; WAKE UP, STOP GRUMBLING, STOP COMPLAINING. Look around and see what surrounds you. The focus of your life is on the temporal not on the things of The Spirit. I have warned yet seldom do My warnings change your lifestyles or effect your decisions. Now...My voice will be silent. My watchmen, my prophets continue to pray and intercede for the lost and dying among you, but warnings that have fallen on deaf ears.....

Prepare...Prepare for The Day of the LORD."

The LORD bless you and keep you: The LORD make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you: The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26 RSV)

shalom...

"If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

"How great is the Father' love for His children, how great His compassion, His grace, His mercy.

Your rebellious lifestyles keep you separated from the goodness of your God.

The wrath of God will one day be poured out upon the wicked generations who have scorned My Son, mocked My children and slandered My Name. One day all will understand; crying out for mercy, pleading for My grace but none will come for their heart will continue in rebellious disobedience and rejection of My Truh. I speak to those who have a form of godliness but deny My Power, My Truth. I speak yet with feet planted firmly in the world millions will continue to stand.

The folly of the faithful is bringing damnation to My children. My church speaks lies and people turn a blind eye, ignoring what is before them. My people perish for lack of wisdom - knowledge is absent in My church as pastors preach watered down messages that tickle the ear but have no substance. There is no growth, no meat only milk. To grow in grace, to be holy for I AM is holy they do not teach.

The Father of Lights (James 1:17) has sent The Son of God to redeem fallen man. I love My children more, much more than they could imagine. None comprehend the depth of My love for those who belong to Me. Without My great love man has no hope. There awaits all a day of judgment, a time when books will be opened and choices made will determine your destiny. Now is the time to decide. Choose this day whom you will serve. Examine yourself. What you have carefully hidden I already know.

Take a stand! If you are ashamed of Me in this wicked and perverse generation I will be ashamed of you before My Father who is in heaven. Stand up. Take a stand for Truth. My people perish for lack of wisdom, knowledge and truth."

"He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels" Revelation 3:5.

"Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, "I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE." 2 Corinthians 6:16

'"Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

"He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels." Revelation  3:5

"JESUS came that you might have life and life more abundantly. He came as The Perfect Sacrifice for your (our) sins. Great though they be...He came. Knowing the frailty of man, his desire for the things of the world, knowing his weakness He came. He has come that man may have life and life abundantly, without lack, content, fulfilled in Me. But man has chosen to ignore Me. Refusing to seek My ways he continues on a path he has lain out for himself. Why do you harbor resentment and unforgiveness in your heart? Why have you chosen to ignore My love for My creation? Tragic will be the outcome for those who will not repent.

The Light of His life shines brightly for those who will choose to seek Him - for others My Son has become a stumbling stone, The Stone that the builders rejected. A curse word on the lips of many. Time and time again I have called you to draw closer to Me and time and time again you have refused. You make time for other things but no time for Me. Count the cost. The price you are paying is loss of intimacy with your God. My ways you do not know. To My people I say rejoice that your names are written in The Lamb Book of Life but you must repent for the sins that have enslaved your lives. Live holy and acceptable unto Me, a workman that need not be ashamed.

JESUS the Christ, The Lover of your soul has given His all that man might be saved. Come as you are...leave your burdens, your sins, your failures at the cross. Kneel and receive My forgiveness." (What a mighty God we serve.) "My people have no idea the greatness of their God but take for granted the things of God as they twist My Words to fit their manmade theologies. Continue to follow Me, continue to trust what you know from My Word to be true. Do not accept manmade theologies or the religions of man; religions that feed the body (flesh) but not the soul. Follow Me little ones...follow Me.

Arise renewed and follow where I will lead. All are created in the image of God; eternal beings and each will spend eternity in the place of their own choosing...heaven or hell.

My people...gird your loins, make straight your crooked paths, shun evil, embrace the good. Do not follow man, follow Me.

"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children..." Ephesians 5:1

"Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go." Isaiah 48:17

"In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:6

"Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 1:13

"There is going to be a great meeting in the air...millions anxiously wait but they do not prepare. Through much tribulation will you enter My kingdom. Prepare for My return as you prepare to stand against great opposition to your faith.

With great expectation man awaits the arrival of My Son not realizing the times in which they live. The days grow dark...men' hearts will fail them for fear. Millions are not ready for what must happen before My Son returns to claim His bride. A great revival is needed for the soul of man has become hardened to the things of God. Pray for hearts to change, that lives might reflect the goodness of God. Time is slipping away.

Speak clearly without faultering. Speak clearly -My Words will be life to the hearer. Hard days are coming upon this nation. America has long rejected God and now God has rejected America. My grace, My mercy will no longer cover the sins of this wicked nation. Expect more...My wrath is being poured out on this 'christian' nation

 Rejection of truth will increase as man seeks someone to blame for the woes of their nations. Warn My people...prepare. You are not prepared. Prepare for the coming of The LORD."

"But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God..." Romans 2:5

"The LORD has bared His holy arm In the sight of all the nations, That all the ends of the earth may see The salvation of our God." Isaiah 52:10

"The one who scatters has come up against you. Man the fortress, watch the road; Strengthen your back, summon all your strength." Nahum 2:1

"For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end," Hebrews 3:14

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

"Written for those who claim to follow after My ways...embracing My precepts.  Written for the believers among you...but humility and repentance is a distraction to million; a burden they care not to carry.

The voice of My Holy Spirit is being drown out, distracted by the world and all it offers. Man spends time on worldly pleasures; passing the time on things that build man' ego, pride and pocketbook but little time on things that would build man' spirit, encourage his soul and strengthen his body for the work I have called him to do.

Be they prophet, priest or king - all must come just as they are to receive forgiveness, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. None will enter My kingdom but through the blood of My perfect Lamb....My Son Yeshua HaMachiach, JESUS the Christ. There is no other way."

"Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you." James 4:10

"I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"; And You forgave the guilt of my sin."  Psalm 32:5

"...but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1:7

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness… Romans 1:18

STRANGE FIRE
By: M.E. Townsend

"Truth must be spoken, however it be taken."—John Trapp

“And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which He commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.” Leviticus 10:1-2

In the name of tolerance and diversity, churches across the nation, and around the world, have embraced centering prayer, soaking prayer, contemplative worship, and “Christian” yoga. Incorporating Buddhist mysticism calling it Christian Meditation, using repetitive phrases both in song and prayer intending to focus the mind on the sacred while bringing one into a deeper spiritual experience, with Hindu Occultism masquerading as Christian Yoga, and with the new-man centered view of God we have driven worship from the sacred to the insane.

“Strange Fire, Strange Fire!” Says the LORD.

With lights dimmed and candles lit, regardless of denomination, we are invited to be still and quiet before the LORD. It has been stated that ‘the quiet repetition of a single word can help us to descend with the mind into the heart…This way of simple prayer …opens us to God’s active presence.’ [The Way of the Heart p.62] Should we not recognize that with this divergence in worship styles a deviation from what God ordained in His Holy Scripture to what man has set as the order of worship has occurred?

“Strange Fire, Strange Fire!”

When we make common the holiness of God, refusing to honor Him or His Word, choosing instead to follow the teachings of man rather than the Truths of God, we fall from adoration into ambiguity, no longer honoring or revering the King of Kings and LORD of Lords. Transformed by New Age meditations we become New Spirituality mimes, no longer offering God our petitions and prayers, our intercessions and thanksgiving.

Sadly, all that remains is ~ ‘Strange Fire.’

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God; because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” I John 4:1

“For a time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned into fables. II Timothy 4:3-4
