 The Dumbing Down of the Church

By: M.E. Townsend

In the early 1900’s, Germans were taught the Bible could not be trusted, but human reasoning could. Higher Criticism, rationalization, liberal philosophy filled the hearts and minds of the German populace paving the way for Hitler and the Holocaust – man’s inhumanity to man.

Dr. David Breese explains how this was possible:

“The initial effect of German rationalization upon a Christian culture was on the schools, churches, and scholarship of Europe…Even so, religion still continued in Europe. There were still large churches, burning candles, beautiful choirs, lovely stained glass windows, congregations…all of that was still there…The Bible was only empty pages written by men who were now dead, rather than revelation of the living God. European Christianity was destroyed from within while still possessing the external form by which it had been known for centuries…the leaders quoted everything but the Bible and preached everything but the gospel, and reality was gone…It was because of religious liberalize that Europe lost its soul.”

As we see the dumbing down of the church in America we cannot help but see a parallel emerge.

The church in America has exchanged Divine morality for moral relativism, and secular humanism, allowing pansies in the pulpit while politically correct congregants sit as paupers in the pews. “Christians” have become willing participants of complacency and passivity instead of warring powerhouses of truth with a Holy boldness of intolerance to compromise and accommodate.

“Woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation, Woe to you who are full, for you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.”
Luke 6:24-25

Just as in Germany immediately preceding Hitler’ reign, the German people allowed false teaching to impact German culture. In order to regain national pride, financial abundance and stability they resolved to go along with the message and the means proposed by Hitler.

The masses followed blindly -

“For certain men have crept in unnoticed…ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny the only LORD God and our LORD Jesus the Christ.” Jude 4

- while the remnant stood strong.

Albert Einstein exiled from Germany for being Jewish noted:

“Being a lover of freedom, when the Nazi revolution came I looked to the universities to defend it, knowing that they had always boasted of the devotion to the cause of truth; but no, the universities were immediately silenced. Then I looked to the great editors of the newspapers, whose flaming editorials in the days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom; but they, like the universities, were silenced in a few short weeks. Only the church stood squarely across the path of Hitler’s campaign for suppressing truth. I never had any special interest in the church before, but now I feel a great affection and admiration for it because the church alone had the courage and persistence to stand for intellectual and moral freedom. I am forced to confess that what I once despised I now praise unreservedly.”

“But I say, did Israel not know. First Moses says: I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation, I will anger you be a foolish nation.” Romans 10:19

Stand strong child of God. Provoke to jealousy those who do not know our LORD.

“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong…” I Corinthians 16:13

This can be our finest hour church – be brave, stand strong!

 For several years I listened expectantly for the trumpet to sound, calling believers home. I listened with excitement to messages of deliverance from the wrath coming upon the earth. With a smile on my face, I embraced those encouraging words admonishing each of us to look up and not out, teaching them to my children. Joy and laughter filled the halls of churches as thoughts of escaping the judgments to come danced across our minds, filling our hearts with the assurance that all was well with our soul.

Several years passed and I rocked on until one night I was radically changed after an encounter with the True and Living God. I matured in my faith, took my Bible and began to read, to study. As the Word commands:

“Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

As I read books by Robert VanKampen, Marv Rosenthal and Michael Pfeil along with studying my Bible, nagging thoughts crept in. My smile became a thoughtful gaze, and I was left to wondered:

“What If?”

What if the PreTrib belief were correct? What Harm?

We had waited with expectant hearts the appearing of our LORD. Standing joyfully on His promises to deliver us from the wrath to come.

What if the PreTrib belief were correct? What Harm?

We as a family, with joy and laughter, had discussed what heaven would be like and spent hours attending prophecy conferences with feel good messages, amid shouts of Maranatha, sharing our excitement with like minded believers.

BUT nagging thoughts refused to go away.

What if the PreTrib belief were wrong? What Harm?

We have spent much time waiting expectantly to be saved from the wrath to come but NO time preparing our hearts and our minds to stand for Him in the fiery furnace of affliction. We have spent little time on our knees weeping before the LORD over the lost within our own families, nor have we cried out to our Father to save, deliver and heal a lost and dying world. We have swallowed and followed but spent no time becoming rooted and grounded in His Word.

What if the PreTrib belief were wrong? What Harm?

We have not examined our own hearts before God, but have chosen instead to embrace easy belief-ism. We have not looked at our own sins nor cried out to God in broken repentance. We have forgotten to look up to a Holy God who said:

“I am the LORD your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy.” Leviticus 11:44

There will indeed be a rapture - but whether it is today, tomorrow or a thousand years from now, our LORD has said “occupy until I come."

“…when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?" Luke 18:8

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

The heart is deceitful above things, and desperately sick. From within, out of the heart of man comes evil thoughts. Although they ‘knew’ God, they did not honor Him as God. None is righteous. Not one. No one understands, no one seeks for God. All have turned aside, together they have become worthless, no one does good, not even one. Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.” (Jeremiah 17; Romans 1; Mark 7; Romans 3)

In September, 2020 came these words: Calamity and chaos await the rebellious and disobedient. Such evil spews across the nation, men’ hearts hard and filled with hate. Arise My children, accept the call to arms. Do not allow fear or faithlessness to rob you of being a part of the great battle for the soul of America. The battle is fierce and will become more intense, but fear not. Rise up, stand on the promises of God. Become armed and dangerous with your two-edged sword, the power the authority of My Word. Do not shrink back. Do not cower in fear. The hour is late. Get in the battle. The LORD is calling; be silent no longer. (September, 2020...we were warned)

Fast forward...August, 2021: Dangerous days are coming upon your nation. Sin has taken a heavy toll on America and her people. It must be dealt with and it is being dealt with. Actions have brought judgment and now it falls. My children will shine like diamonds in the midst of the blackest of coals. No fear! Trust in Me. Souls will come by the thousands as My hand falls upon their unrighteousness. O, be ready for the harvest. Work while you have time. Do not be easily silenced. (15 August, 2021 we've been warned once again).

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34

America is steeped in sin. Her life consumed by powers of darkness, choosing to live in tombs of despair, following Baals and Jezebels render America helpless. Times of refreshing must come from the church as she mobilizes to take her place to tear down the darkness and set captives free. Take a stand for My Word. Take a stand against lies and false fake religion. Stand with Me…a threefold cord is not quickly broken. America will come to her senses. None have control over what belongs to Me, and what belongs to Me is the earth and everything in it. The sun, the moon, the stars, galaxies, governments, terriorist, traitors...everything is under My command. Trust in are in very good hands.

Who can stand before His indignation? Who can endure the burning of His anger? His wrath is poured out like fire and the rocks are broken up by Him. Nahum 1:6

Stand amazed at what I will do. All glory, honor and praise will be Mine. Evil topples as My hand sweeps across empires to bring a cleansing, a refiners fire. Stand amazed, it will be spectacular; expect impossibilities. I AM the God of the impossible. With Me all things are possible. Take a stand for righteousness. Stand amazed and see the glory of your God.

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

Don’t allow the actions of others, their choices to rob you of peace. Keep looking at Me. Don’t allow anger or disappointment to rob you of joy in My presence. Each one has their journey, their path to follow. All have sinned and come short of My glory.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:11

Rejoice in all things, rejoice! I Am in control. I AM working among you to right the wrongs, to destroy darkness, to set captives free. My children are divisive, yet distinct, set apart yet united in Me. Expect great things. Take your rest in Me and expect the unexpected. Stand faithfully for what is right. Be on the LORD’ side, keep looking up.

 Behold He who forms mountains and creates the wind and declares to man what are His thoughts. He who makes dawn into darkness and treads on the high places of the earth. The Lord God of hosts is His name. Amos 4:13

I know the thoughts and intent of every heart. I know when you rise and when you sleep. I AM involved in every part of your life. Do not attempt to hide things from Me. Bring faults, failures, fears to Me. Bring all to Calvary...and then leave it there.

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God. Psalm 42

In March, 2021 came these words: Wind….change. God is moving across the land. Upheaval, rapid movements. God is in control My child. Listen to the wind, hear its voice. Listen closely to the wind. Shaking, awaking. Devilish demonic forces are at work in your nation. They advance without restraint; knowing their days are numbered, their reign of terror is coming to an end. They advance to their own demise, to their own destruction. Satan is a defeated foe, give him no more territory. Begin to take back what has been given in times past. Reclaim what belongs to the righteous. Reclaim what belongs to Me.

Be strong, and let us show ourselves courageous for the sake of our people and for the cities of our God; and may the LORD do what is good in His sight….2 Samuel 10:12

Recognize distractions for what they are. Situations or circumstances to silence the voice of God, to bring frustration or confusion. Do not allow distractions to steal your peace, your joy or your hope; trust in Me. Cherish your relationship with Me. Guard it carefully. Let nothing steal your heart from Me. NOTHING! Cling to Me. Cling tightly to Me.

The cross of Calvary paid it all, everything you will ever need, look to Calvary. Look to Calvary to fulfill all your needs; hopes, desires, dreams, healing, salvation, forgiveness...Look to Calvary. There you will find the answers to it all. See yourself at Calvary; receiving JESUS' free gift. Take from Him and leave there rejoicing in the goodness of your God.

For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18

Saturday, July 24, 2021

Would you be free from your passions and pride? There’ power in The Blood, Power in the Blood. His perfect blood washes the sinner clean; it purifies the putrid, washes the wounded and sanctifies the sinner. Would you serve Jesus and make Him your King? There’ wonderful power in The Blood.

Man has time for many things, but has no time for Me, says the LORD. Many things have come between the heart of God and the heart of man. Man has become entwined with the ways of the world, giving little thought to his future. Determined to let things “work out” millions ignore what is before them hoping for a brighter tomorrow. Foolish are the ways of the world, foolish still are those who continue to follow in the footsteps of fallen man. Flee the powers of darkness,  stand against a government besieged and beguiled by demonic forces of evil. Flee o man, flee from the wrath that is surely to come to those who reject the goodness of God. Take the sword of the Spirit The Word of God and fight.

The world is becoming a dangerous place; wrap yourself in My Word. Allow My promises to become active and alive within you. Do not expect to be accepted. Expect that what is coming will test the resolve of many. Keep your heart and mind stayed on Me. Allow nothing to separate you from the love of God. Trust Me even when you don't understand.

What about revival I ask. There is a near prophecy and there is a future.These words are future. Yes revival, great revival will come. Expect a great harvest of souls. Remember the trains and churches in Germany. Do not sing louder ignoring what is. Revival will explode across the nation and the world, awakening the slumbering, releasing captives….for a season then...You will see a shift as once again people begin to turn their back on righteousness; doubting, questioning God' Word.  Compromise will bring great harm and division to the church. A strong voice will be needed...he will arise.

Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget My words or turn from them. Proverbs 4:5

Receive revival with gladness, knowing you must be on our guard. No doubt, no question, no compromising of My Word.  I ask when? Holy Spirit responded; “it is not for you to know the times and seasons that the LORD has prepared for those that love Him. Keep your lamp lit with the Glory of My Word; I AM that I AM."

Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom (dominion, reign) of our God, and the authority of His Christ have come; for the accuser of our [believing] brothers and sisters has been thrown down [at last], he who accuses them and keeps bringing charges [of sinful behavior] against them before our God day and night. And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them [in the presence of God]. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you in great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time [remaining]!” Revelation 12

Stand strong, o man (and woman) of God. STAND strong In JESUS' Holy Name!!!

Standing Faithful in the Furnace

“The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly” John 10:10

In expectation of the abundant life, with ‘Praise the Lord’ easily slipping off our tongue, we begin our walk of ‘faith’ trusting all will run smoothly and that we will overcome every trial with a song in our heart and a spring in our step. We assume our role as a “child of the King” eagerly awaiting our best life ever, having been taught that God wants the best for His children, we sit perched on the promises of God -

“Whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it.
“Because I live, you will live also. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you, Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” [John 14:13, 14, 19, 27]

Then one day, without warning – we ask yet we do not receive. We continue to ask as our circumstance grows worse yet we do not receive the answer we so desperately seek. Our peace destroyed, our heart troubled, we find, to our dismay, that we are afraid. We bind the authority of satan, casting him out; we command he remove his hand from the “child of the King” With a loud voice, believing confession brings possession, we ‘call forth those things that be not as if they were’ – never realizing it was God who called into existence those things that were not, and not man. [Romans 4]

Doubt replaces faith as “what ifs’ steadily creep in - “What if my faith is too small?” “What if I did not “do” the Word of God as I should?” “What if I have been living in the flesh, therefore living in unbelief?” No longer perched on the promises we find ourselves struggling to even believe the promises as each “what if” unravels our faith one thread at a time.

With a lack of diligence, we give little thought to the growing of our faith. We chose to ignore “the testing of our faith produces endurance” choosing instead to claim “whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do.” Never considering that we must learn to trust in the faithfulness of our Faithful God, we remain spiritual and mental midgets. James tells us to: “count it all joy when we fall into trials” but we are too busy rebuking the devil to count the joy.

The proving ground for the life of all believers will never be found outside of pain and suffering, but only within the confines of the furnace of affliction. Moses learned much as he tended sheep. Learning patience, Moses waited on God's timing until at last he became the shepherd to lead the people of God out of Egyptian bondage into the land of Promise.

Joseph too was chosen to be a mighty deliverer. With long, weary, trying years spent in the dungeon Joseph learned to trust in the faithfulness of his God. Joseph was slandered, maligned, afflicted and oppressed but he could say with certainty: you meant it for evil, but God meant it for good.”

When the times of testing come and we find yourselves surrounded by a blazing furnace of oppression, realize that many times the Lord will use just such a place to reveal Himself in greater splendor and glory. Realize also that God has allowed this experience of testing, this furnace of affliction so that sin and self might be burned out of our lives.

Remember God has called us to be holy, because He is holy. God will choose us and use us - if we endure the test.

We are not the victim of circumstance. We are a child of the King! We belong to God! However, we are the clay on the potter's wheel. Pressures will come, we will experience rejection, face hardship and loss, be scorned and ridiculed; but our LORD God is the One who orders all things in the lives of His children.

Everything is in the hand of God. Nothing comes to us by accident nor outside His will.

BE FAITHFUL! Be faithful even though you find yourself surrounded by the flaming fiery furnace of heavy trial. Be Faithful and

"... hold fast the confession of our faith without wavering, for He who has promised is faithful - The Lamb of God." [Hebrews 10]

The beautiful promises found in the Book of John were spoken by our LORD to His committed disciples. Peter spoke on behalf of them all when he said:

“See, we have left all and followed You.” [Luke 18:28]

To claim the promises found in these scriptures, without fulfilling the condition is not faith, it is presumption.

Where do you stand? Are you a disciple of the LORD or a member of the church -perched on the wrong promise?

Thursday, July 15, 2021

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; while were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’ wrath through Him! For if, while were were God’ enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! Romans 5

How great is our God – His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness. Truth? My Word is Truth! Others are a shadow of truth, a mist, a fog. Do not get wrapped up in the affairs of man. My children are called to come up higher with Me. Leave the cares of the world behind and journey into My world.

In quiet moments I speak. Hear Me in the quietness. Listen for My voice to counsel and provide wisdom and discernment for the task I am calling you to. I will direct your steps. Listen and learn. Weakness, fickle hearts will soon feel the impact of My Word to bring healing. Hope restored, lives once shattered will be mended. A great Presence of My Spirit will awaken those who have slumbered. This is a time to rejoice for what I AM will do. Indeed these are great days for My people. The righteous will rejoice and be glad.

Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall, but the Word of the LORD remains constant, unchanged, trustworthy, faithful and true. My children have nothing to fear for the constant truth of My Word will guide and provide all you will need in days ahead. Darkness will come, indeed is already here. I AM is the Light that will shine brightly to expel the darkness. With heavy hearts look up and see the glory of your God. It is not for you to fear or speculate, but to trust and believe in the goodness of God.

Shaking, shattering, surrendering. These are the steps of revival. Do not be alarmed by what you see, what you read, or what you hear in days ahead. Know and recognize My Word in your nation. Be not alarmed by it all, but rejoice that I AM is doing a work of restoration as I bring shaking, shattering and surrendering to the hurting, the hopeless and the rebel; believing themselves to be rebels with a cause they are lost amid the lies of the world. I will seek and I will save. (a good place to pause and read Jeremiah 26).

Persevere! Hold fast to your confession of faith. Fear not! Things are not as they appear.

The LORD’ justice will dwell in the desert, His righteousness in the fertile field. The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; it’ effect will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places. 

(Be encouraged as you read all of Isaiah 32 and Isaiah 34. Both accompanied this post given by Holy Spirit to the body to encourage, strengthen and bring peace to the troubled soul).

The time has come. Empires are beginning to crumble, wickedness exposed, darkness defeated. Satan overplayed his hand and has been caught in his own trap. Those who have long served this taskmaster will fall. The enemies of righteousness will be defeated. It will not go well for those who fight against Me. You will see the goodness of God pour forth upon America. Continue to stand in the gap, continue to hold your position. Declare a great awakening is coming. Your prayers are being answered. Keep your eyes on Me.!. The battle belongs to the LORD.

Thursday, July 8, 2021

 For who has known the mind of the LORD, or who has been His counselor? Or who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen (Romans 11)

Great expectations, unexpected blessings. Assurances from the throne room of God. Assurances that America belongs to God. Continue to pray, continue to praise, continue to expect the goodness of your God to be poured out upon this nation. Not for any good that you have done, but for My honor, My glory says the LORD. To show forth My power to a generation that has forgotten their God. I have heard the prayers of My children, I have seen their tears and repentant hearts. I will heal, I will deliver, I will restore.

Execute justice in the morning, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed, lest my wrath go forth like fire, and burn with none to quench it, because of your evil deeds.’ (Jeremiah 21)

My anointing breaks the yoke. Do not be bound up in the affairs of the world, do not lean on your own understanding or the words of man. Your trust must be in Me, The Creator of heaven and earth.. Nothing is outside My control. Man may make his plans, but My ways, My will always rule in the affairs of men. Always.

Great days are coming to your nation; but the journey will be rough. The road filled with debris from past failures and fearless opposition. Powers of darkness continue to hold your nation tightly in their grasp. Millions sink further into an abyss of evil from which many will not escape. Daily My Spirit woos, daily He is ignored, rejected, ridiculed and shamed. Revival? Yes Revival;  but after much destruction. It will not come without a fight.

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6)

Satan will not give up easily. The end is close, but not yet. Understand there is much work to be done before the closing of the final pages of history. America has not listened to men of God. America has gone her own way – chosen her own path and now America is reaping what she has sown.

Shake, shatter, surrender; steps to revival. America has lost her first love. Times of rejoicing after the season of despair. I AM is doing a new thing; you would not believe it even if I told you. My ways are perfect, all I do is perfection. This past year has been for purging, to separate sheep from goats. America is at the center of what I AM is doing to bring in the harvest across the globe. America will prosper, America will shine. God will indeed be great once again in America. Keep standing on the promises of God.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes, fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. (Proverbs 3:6)

Thursday, July 1, 2021

Where are they who are ashamed of the abominations which they have committed? No shame at all; none even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen, when I punish them, THEY WILL COLLAPSE says the LORD. Stand at the crossroads and look. Ask for the ancient paths, seek the good way, then walk in it and you will find rest for your souls.

But millions are saying: “We will not walk in the ways of the LORD. We will follow our own ways, make our own rules, govern ourselves, rejecting what is goodness and light all the while embracing what is dark, destructive and evil. I the LORD appointed watchmen over you and said, “Listen for the sound of the ram’ horn.” Actions speaking louder than words. The rams horn sounded warnings, Truth continually speaks from The Word of God yet millions in defiant rebellion and arrogant pride refuse to listen. 

Worship the Lord, serve Him with reverent awe-inspired fear and submissive wonder. In trembling, rejoice in the goodness of your God. If a man or woman, young or old do not repent, God will sharpen His sword, string His bow and make it ready. Vengeance is Mine says the LORD, I will repay.” Let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end. Try the hearts and minds of the righteous, LORD. Establish us in right standing with You.

But you kings, judges, presidents, prime ministers, rulers of the earth; act wisely. Be instructed and take warning. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. But arrogant fools despise godly wisdom, instruction and self-discipline. Because in them there has been no change of heart. Because they do not fear God, He will hear the prayers and cries of His people and humble the proud, the haughty the rebellious deceiver. He who sits enthroned from old, sees all, hears all and knows all.

Tremble in fear of God, seek to serve Him. Meditate in your heart upon your bed. Be still and learn His ways. Reflect on your sin and repent of your rebellion. Our shield and our defense depend on God Who saves the upright in heart. (Scripture references from Jeremiah 6, and The Psalms)

Let us celebrate our independence, our liberty, our freedom this July 4thBUT never take it for granted.

"The Word is near, in your mouth, in your heart. The Word, the message, the basis of faith; for those with ears to hear and hearts to receive it is near. It is near because, if you will acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is LORD, if you will recognize His power, His authority His majesty as God AND believe in your heart that God raised JESUS from the dead, God’ promise to all who will believe and receive is eternal life. With the heart each person must believe in Jesus as Christ and Saviour; a belief that frees from the guilt of sin and makes one acceptable to God and then speak aloud acknowledging, confessing faith in Jesus openly, confirming their salvation, their true change of heart, their salvation by faith alone in Christ alone His Word is Truth, that “Whoever calls on the Name of the LORD will be saved.” (paraphrase of Romans 10)

Charles Spurgeon wrote: The children of this world are wise in their generation. Their policy may be short-sighted and their stratagems crooked, nevertheless the world admires the wisdom of their counsel, and makes light of the craftiness of their projects. In their opposition to the Christian church, the men of the world might certainly have been as well able to outwit her by the variety of their maneuvers as to overwhelm her by the force of their numbers, were it not that there is an unseen One in her midst, who is more than a match for the guile of their hearts and the might of their hosts.

It breaks my heart when I realize that it is those called by His Name who are the greatest hindrance to the spreading of the gospel message. For every true Bible believing Blood bought believer, for every follower of Jesus Christ there are scores that are Christian in name only; but we are not without hope:

There are billions of ‘professing Christians’ in the world, but the true church is small compared to the number professing a biblical faith with little or no evidence to back up their claims. But the church does exist - Jesus promised... “I will build My church, and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.” We must keep witnessing, sharing and standing on the promises of God.

Don’t hide your heart of hurt from Jesus. Don’t allow guilt from the past to rob you of a victorious future. Don’t allow the crafty deceit of the world to blind you to Truth. But you might say “you don’t know what I’ve done;” and you would be correct. I don't know, but God does and He made forgiveness available even before you sinned. He has done His part, the rest is up to you.

"My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,' says the Lord.'For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9

We claim faith in Jesus the Christ. We stand with voices raised heavenward singing, “Standing on the promises of God,” we glibly quote scripture and encourage our neighbors and friends to ‘only believe’. Yet, when we are confronted with trials and testing, when our own world appears to crumble beneath us, we cry in agony, race to the doctor, grab a pill or call a friend to listen to our woes.

We generally feel sorry for ourselves, while bemoaning the unfairness of our circumstance we fail to remember the words of the Psalm - "Be still [cease striving] and know [remember] that I AM God."

While this may be natural, we were not chosen of God to be natural, we were chosen by God, 'out of the world', a new creation in Him - called to be a supernatural people. We all too quickly panic rather than praise and all too soon forget:

“In all [these] things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.”
[Romans 8:37]

Scripture tells us -

“Endure hardship as discipline. God is testing you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?” [Hebrews 12:7]

Again, scripture tells us -

“Consider it all joy when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” [James 1:1-4]

We are powerless in and of ourselves. We read in Habakkuk, ‘it is The LORD God who is our strength. It is He who makes me walk on high places.’

We are admonished to never forget - ‘we are not to conform to this world [the natural] but be transformed by the renewing of our mind [supernatural] so that we might prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.’ [Romans 12:2]

 I love You O LORD, my strength.” The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and the One who rescues me; My God, my rock and strength in whom I trust and take refuge; my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower my stronghold. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; and I will be saved from my enemies. Psalm 18

The heart of The Hunter, the hunter of lost souls is grieved. I yearn to redeem yet My righteous ones continue in rebellion and unbelief, standing with the world but not with My Word. Days are getting shorter not longer. Time is slipping away and still tens of millions are not ready, they will not listen, they refuse to learn. My Spirit will not always strive with man.”

The vision was clear, so too was the message. A twisted tree stood before me, a tree whose limbs were gnarled and knobbly, it appeared to be dead. I looked closer and saw a few green leaves hung from the limbs of the sad looking little tree. As I continued to stare at the tree, Holy Spirit spoke: “This is My Church. Starved for nutrition and water, struggling to live.” Holy Spirit went on the explain spiritual nutrition was The Word and water the Holy Spirit. He then ask: “What will happen to My people if the church dies? Where will the lost among you go for Truth if the tree dies? My church must have The Word and The Spirit to survive. My church must not be allowed to die.

A clarion call has gone forth to My people. Advance, go forward. Do not resist the call of Holy Spirit. I AM coming for a people who have washed their garments in the blood of Salvation, JESUS God’ Son. Learn to listen. Learn to hear My still small voice. I will speak many things – listen and learn. Come boldly to My throne room. You are a child of the King (if you have yet to make the decision to pick up your cross and follow Him as your King, wherever He leads, NOW is the time. It’s more than just ‘say a little ‘prayer’ it’s a life long commitment to TRUST in the goodness of God).

Come to your Father in faith, knowing He hears you when you cry.”

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3

 The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold….

But you have allowed My house to become a den of thieves, a place haunted by past failures, fear has griped the hearts and peace can be found.

As the powers of darkness gained more control over your lives, fear gripped your heart, doubts crowded into your mind. “Where is God" you cried as mask mandates and lockdowns became the law of the land….and you bowed to the spirits of darkness that were taking your nation captive. But God would say to those with ears to hear:

You O nations of the world, have rejected Me, it is not I who rejected you. It is you who chose another, a wider path to follow, another god to serve. The ways of the world; the lust for comfort, ease and position have been your downfall.

But if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear that Name. For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God, and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who disobey the gospel of God. And if it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner...1 Peter 4:16-18

It will be well with your soul. Times of refreshing will come for My children IF you will stand in the midst of uncertainty knowing that I AM is at work among you, fear not, and believe your times are in My hand.

It is time for rejoicing for the child of God. Miracles will overpower the mayhem, My Word will stand in power and strength. Now is not the time to cower in fear, but a time to become embolden in strength and determination. A time to take a stand and continue to believe “I AM WHO I AM” Exodus 3:14. Great days await My children. Great will be the peace of those that belong to Me.

Look beyond what is to see what can be. Great pearls of wisdom, great words of truth will soon be poured out upon America and around the world. Many will see and believe, many more will scorn and reject the Son of God. It must be but My plans will not be destroyed by criticism or unbelief. 

Revival will come, but not in the way many have expected; but come it will. My hand will be upon My people. My remnant will be strong, grow in knowledge and spread the gospel giving birth to reformation, repentance and revival. My church must be cleansed. This is My perfect will – restoration and revival. It will come.

 "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.’ Revelation 13:16-17

A nation filled with carnality, rebellion and rage, cowering in fear, ‘woke’ but not a ‘wake’- a generation who knows not their God.

...understand the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, disrespectful, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having an appearance of godliness, denying its power. Avoid such people.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5

Holy Spirit spoke: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23) Then He ask “What does this mean?” My response “What does it mean to me?” Holy Spirit responded in the affirmative; I continued. “it means to me that the price I will pay for my sins is death but JESUS paid that price for me.” Holy Spirit said, “Yes, but this is not all it means. It also means for My Name Sake.” Then He went on to explain: “Man is a created being just like the grass in the field and the birds in the sky and if Christ, who never sinned, had not became sin so that you could be made right with God through Him, (ref. 2 Corinthians 5:21) I would be the Giver of life, but not the sustain-er (the brace the support the anchor the maintainer) of life.”

"Awaken to what is happening, be alert, be engaged. Be determined to stand in faith without wavering. Evil will not prevail. Be not dismayed neither swayed by voices of doubt and fear. ALWAYS trust in the goodness of God.”

The woman screamed, “Why God, why?” She had held the gun, she had pulled the trigger and now she ask’ God “Why?”

Our own wickedness will correct us, our apostasies will reprove us; the land which the LORD gave to our founding fathers to eat of its fruit and its bounty, we have now become its’ slave. Its abundant produce is for the kings Whom You have set over us because of our sins; they rule over our bodies, over our cattle as they please. Evil and bitterness surround for we have forsaken the LORD our God. He will repay each person for his work, whether good or evil, He will cause consequences to find them according to their conduct. (Jeremiah 2:19, Job 34:11, Nehemiah 8:36-37)

We as believers were not doing our job, which meant satan could do his. We must understand the ways of God and not credit Him for the results of our own actions. Let the responsibility fall where it needs to fall. We need a wake up call. There is simply No hope for America apart from revival.

Clearly He has spoken

And He has much to say;

If we would only listen

And not get in the way.

We fret, we stew we worry,

But do we kneel to pray?

O, child of God please listen

Command the demons flee;

Then watch His mighty hand at work

As He calms the troubled sea.

With eager expectation

We must heed the LORD’ command;

To join Him in this hour

For the battle is at hand.

God remains at the helm of humanity, He will not allow His creation to be destroyed. Refuse to be intimidated or distracted. You have a mission a purpose a destiny. Keep standing; keep standing on the promises of God.

 Your the breath in my lungs, so I pour out my praise, I pour out my praise to You only LORD.

How quickly we become discouraged; a harsh word, a shattered dream, sickness, death of one we love, on and on until discouragement and disappointment mount and we begin to see God as something, someone other than what His Word says He is. Thoughts cloud our once clear thinking, we begin to question - “did God reeeeally say…?”

A great division has come upon our nation. Many voices speak varying messages; some truth, most false, fake, lies to deceive. If the word they speak does not line up with the Word of God, believe it not! Do not lose heart, do not grow weary. Continue to stand against the strong opposition fomented by the powers of darkness, continue to stand for Truth.

The fate of the nation lies in the hand of the king and I AM is King of the nations. Truth, My Word is Truth. Man has his opinion, I, have the final word. The greatness of Almighty God will break the power of darkness, break every chain, expose corruption and set the captive free.

I will not be mocked, neither will I allow My people to be destroyed. America is being purged. Get your house in order. Will you serve Me or Baal? Will you stand in faith or cower in fear?

A stirring has begun, men’ hearts are beginning to awaken to the lateness of the hour. 2021 will see a new kingdom arise from the ashes of conflict and chaos. A kingdom of Righteousness, unity and brotherly love. An awakening, a new birth of what must be and what was lost will give way to a commitment to change nations with the Word of God. Do not be silenced. Do not believe it is over. This is just the beginning.’

Your dead will live; their corpses will rise. You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, for your dew is as the dew of the dawn, and the earth will give birth to the departed spirits. Isaiah 26:19

For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17

Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10

Sunday, April 11, 2021

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper, the LORD is your shade on your right hand. . Psalm 121:1-8

Great days are approaching, Much turmoil will bring triumph. Do not fear, do not acknowledge the powers of evil. Stand in strength. Stand and you will be a part of the greatest show on earth. Truth will overcome the lies. All that is happening now is exposing the corrupt agenda of the powers of darkness. Millions will see for the first time the depth of evil and corruption. Allow the time of exposure to run its course, but know that My plan is to redeem America; to make My Name great in the land and in the nations. Stand strong; everyday is one day closer and another day to praise Me. Grow in strength as you await that day.

It would appear darkness has taken over the nation. Only an illusion, only a shadow of My reality. Satan is claiming victory, but soon his kingdom will begin to fall. Stand in strength, acknowledge I AM that I AM and I will turn hearts and minds to Me. Seek Me, it will be well with your soul.

...know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the LORD`...1 Samuel 17:47

The heart of man is evil, evil and dark until he realizes his sin and need of a Saviour. Then and only then does light invade his darkness and he indeed becomes a new creation in Christ. America’ heart is evil, evil and dark. Each man does what is right in his own eyes. I will invade his darkness with My light. My plans, My purposes for this nation will not be altered, changed or delayed. I do all things well. My ways are not your ways so trust even when you cannot see.

...thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 15:57

Watch in wonder; I AM doing a new thing. My ways will amaze the masses. Many will see yet not believe, others will rejoice with great excitement over what I AM is doing. It will be glorious. Watch and wait in eager expectation. It will be worth the wait. Trust Me. Rise up righteous ones. Rise up! Declare My Word over situations that seem impossible to overcome. Rise up! Allow My Spirit to deliver you from the snares of the evil one and when deliverance comes, and it will, all will see that I alone have healed, delivered and restored.  

And this is the victory that overcomes the world - our faith. 1 John 5:4
