A promise to a Faithful Servant

There is a man in the bible that is not well known. He is not the topic of many sermons nor is he a hero of the faith. Yet his actions were noticed by the one to whom it matters most, The Lord God himself. The first mention of this man it identifies him as an “official” in the royal palace. In ancient times those assigned duties in the Royal place were usually “eunuchs”. Now a eunuch is a particular sort of individual as noted by Jesus in Mathew 19:12 “For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others–and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

Being a eunuch in itself is not what makes this individual unique, but rather it is his actions and devotion ( for the sake of the kingdom) to trusting in The Lord, and also The Lords spokesman; Jeremiah the prophet. The account is as such that as Jeremiah “The Weeping” prophet spoke of judgement and devastation to Judah and Jerusalem, as well as the destruction of the temple, he was not liked by many “false prophets” and those in high position. Sounds much like today of those that only want to have their ears tickled, so he was placed deep in an old cistern (a well) in which the water was gone from and only deep mud remained that Jeremiah sunk into as he was lowered by rope into the mire. This is where our figure enters the story.

This man approaches King Zedekiah king of Judah and tells him that Jeremiah has been dealt with unjustly and will perish if left to remain the the cistern. So he is granted, rather commanded by the King to remove Jeremiah from the pit. He takes 30 men and goes to the cistern and in compassionate manner not only puts down the rope for Jeremiah but brings and provides padding so that the rope does not harm Jeremiah. The prophet is then brought to the courtyard of the palace guard to remain.

Here is The Word of The LORD to the eunuch: Jeremiah 39:15-18 NIV

15 While Jeremiah had been confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the Lord came to him: 16 “Go and tell Ebed-Melek the Cushite, ‘This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I am about to fulfill my words against this city—words concerning disaster, not prosperity. At that time they will be fulfilled before your eyes. 17 But I will rescue you on that day, declares the Lord; you will not be given into the hands of those you fear. 18 I will save you; you will not fall by the sword but will escape with your life, because you trust in me, declares the Lord.’”

The name Ebed-Melek have you heard of him? Are you likened unto him? His name means “Servant of The KING” and he was devoted to and trusted in his King and His Kingdom. Not an earthly one , but an everlasting One. We too should be like the eunuch; consecrated for service in The King’s courts, fully trusting in Him. So that His promise would be ours to claim as well that He WILL Rescue us, He WILL Save us from the impending judgements.

Our King left His throne to set as an example of Servanthood, not servitude. I want to serve a King like that. I want to serve my King and to fully and wholly Trust in His Promises. To hear someday “well done good and faithful SERVANT”

The FINAL Countdown

As it was in the days of Noah. So shall it be when The Son of Man returns”. (Mt. 24:37)

What was it like in the days of Noah? Let’s take a look also at the conditions during the time of Elijah and how we compare in our day.

Noah

Evil thoughts ALL the time, genetic manipulation, angelic (spiritual) unions with human kind. (Gen. 6:1 -5)

They also were just doing life as Jesus states eating and drinking and given in marriage, life as normal. Noah preached “Righteousness” (2Pet. 2:5) for 120 years while he built the ark, and The Lord rescued/delivered him from the judgement.

Elijah

Ahab & Jezebel ruled with evil intentions at every aspect of society. And imposed demonic worship in every quarter. Baalism/Asherah. (1Ki. 18)

Elijah opposed the prophets of Baal/Asherah; he declared a return to true devotion and worship through “Repentance” to return to The Lord God and “Righteousness” was manifested through his stance and opposition. God Almighty redeemed him with a chariot of fire into the heavens.

Behold I Shall send My Messenger before me to “prepare the WAY of the coming of The Lord“. (Is. 40:3/Mal. 3:1)

John the Baptist

John went about Judea preaching Righteousness and Repentance. (Mt.14:3-12/Lk. 3:1-8/Mk. 1:1-8) With a boldness and faith that ended up with him being beheaded by the hands of Herod & Herodias; his brothers wife. (Jezebel& Ahab)

Jesus indicated that John indeed was Elijah that had come before Him. Yet, as many prophetic declarations attest, this prophetic WORD will yet be fulfilled again to completion. (See Post “The TWO Faithful Witnesses”). John a proto-type of the New covenant believer sets the stage for “The Final Countdown“.

Ecclesia

The Church, The Bride of Messiah. In the power and spirit of Elijah! (Lk. 1:17&Mal. 4:5)

“Now learn this lesson…”

We see the fig tree mentioned in Mathew 24:32 that as the “…twigs get tender and its leaves come out…” Jesus indicates this right before His proclamation of as it was in Noah’s day. So we “see”; Israel (the fig tree); the prophetic symbol of “The End Times”, the spirits of Jezebel which is (Ishtar/Asherah/Semiramis “Babylon: Mother of Harlots”) & Baalism which is (Molech/Marduk/Nimrod “Post flood” 1 world ruler) rising in every fabric of societal living; genetic manipulation across plants and animals, spiritism; embodied spiritual unions with demonic forces are once again sweeping across planet earth.

It is at this time for this very hour. That as described by the prophet Joel “in the last days I will POUR OUT my Spirit….says THE LORD”!

The Church MUST and will even if it is a remnant of those that have confessed and professed their devotion to The Messiah: Jesus of Nazareth make a stand! And in BOLDNESS Stand Firm (Eph. 6) in His Mighty Power and declare the message of Noah, Elijah, and John the Baptist Righteousness & true Repentance. To “Prepare the Way” for the coming of The Lord. The clock IS ticking ever closer as we come to that divine moment…tic toc tic toc…

The Final COUNTDOWN, has begun on GOD’s timer!

Shall we be delivered and redeemed from “The Judgement” as Noah and Elijah were, or shall we as John lose our heads for our FAITH? That just might depend on how we respond to HIS calling! We must in TRUTH be made ready.

Dearest friend, My sincere hope and desire is that you would know deep in your heart how much God loves you and that you would simply and truthfully accept the Free gift that He offers; Salvation through the atoning sacrificial Blood of His offering; His Son Jesus (Yeshua). Today is the Day of Salvation.

God Bless You and Keep You until the Day of His appearing.

Identity

Reflecting an Image

We hear of identity crisis, identity politics, identity this and identity that. My question is to whom do we identify? Do we identify with ourselves, which at its core is a form narcissism and self glorification. Do we identify with a group, and to what platform does that group elevate and promote?

A Mirror is a place of reflecting an image or that which we desire or purpose to identify with.

As Christ followers, we are to be “lost or dead” hidden in him! Our Identity is to be IN HIM!

Gal. 3:
27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

1 Cor. 6:
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

Col. 3:
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

Ro. 6:
6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—

So therefore, let us exalt HIM! May HE Alone be Honored, Glorified, and lifted up in all that we say and do. The image we Reflect or Mirror must be HIM.

May our Identity be a living testimony to HIM.

The HOPE of Glory

We look not unto the things of this world. (1Jn. 2:15-17)

I Love this Nation and what it Stands For, yet…

We should not deposit within the confines of this place, this place we call home, our Hope. For those of us living in the United States we find it easy to put our hope and faith in the biblical and Godly foundations of this nation that have become institutions administered, manipulated, and corrupted by man. As followers of Christ and the God of The Bible we must first and foremost remember that –this place– as much as we may love it and all that it stands for (as we should) and the blessings it has provided for so many peoples across the globe, yes it IS worth fighting for and defending abroad and most importantly at home however – IS but our temporary home. Our sights must always be fixed and set upon our eternal home, The Kingdom of Heaven and its King.

I know of and hear many people saying, surely God will not let evil triumph in America. These same people seem to have ALL their hope in America, a political party, or even in an individual. Tossed about by every wind of news and misinformation. I am not being negative, nor am I a doubter of what The Lord is capable of doing. The WORD is The Plumb-line, it IS The Standard by which we must discern the time of our present situation and our guide. Unfortunately, yet many believers DO NOT understand that just as it appeared for a moment in time when Jesus died on the cross and was buried, that evil had won. We know how that turned out; He – Christ Jesus rose victoriously from the grave, defeating Satan, death, hell, and grave. So too it is written that in the “last days” that evil will once again “appear” to have won and implement its plan and usher in a global dominance of all its inhabitants. We know or should know how that story ends as well. It is written for us to know the end from the very beginning. Genesis to Revelations and ALL in between The LORD has been letting us know His plan as well as that of the adversary.

So not to be hopeless, or to sound like being a doubting Thomas. But Our Hope is not in this world or this government, or this nation, but In Christ alone! (PS. 62) For this reason we must understand the great mystery which is

Christ in YOU!

The Hope of Glory! (Col. 1:27)

So let us with a fulness of; Joy, Hope, Victory, and Confidence in Him. Set our eyes, our thoughts, our minds, and our purpose on our eternal home and ALL of its GLORY. Standing firm in Righteousness, having gird up our loins in Truth to oppose the evil and wickedness of our day. For America shall not and cannot recover if it will not Repent and turn away from its godless pursuits, and that which exalts itself above everything relating to the God of the bible. “A Great Awakening” does not necessarily imply that our nation will be delivered from the judgement of Almighty God or even alter the course of society and culture, it does however imply a Church revived and actively engaged in the winning or harvest of souls for His Kingdom at all cost in the face of persecution! A Prevailing Church is a Church that GROWS in the heat of BATTLE!

” I WILL Build MY CHURCH, and the Gates of Hell WILL Not Prevail against it”! (Mt. 16:18)

Come Lord Jesus!

This is our anthem and this must be our battle cry:

For Thine is The Kingdom, and The Power, and The Glory! Forever and ever! Hallelujah….Amen!!!

The “Enlightened” and Depraved

When I was a young boy there was a popular song titled:

“The Age of Aquarius”

The following are excerpts from a simple Google search regarding this “heralded age“:

“What does the dawning of the Age of Aquarius mean?

A common position expressed by many astrologers sees the Age of Aquarius as that time when humanity takes control of the Earth and its own destiny as its rightful heritage, with the destiny of humanity being the revelation of truth and the expansion of consciousness, and that some people will experience mental …”

Constellation Aquarius: The Water Bearer The Age of Enlightenment

Age of Aquarius – Wikipediaen.wikipedia.org › wiki › Age_of_AquariusSearch for: 

What does the dawning of the Age of Aquarius mean?

“Is it the dawning of the Age of Aquarius?
Is 2020 the year of Aquarius?

People have been talking (and singing) about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius for decades now, and many astrologers believe that the monumental “great conjunction” talking place on December 21, 2020 is the cosmic event that’s officially heralding it in. Aug 11, 2020″ End of Google quote.

Illuminati Symbol:
Eye of Horus: Egypt
Star of Tammuz: Babylon
Minds Eye: Garden of Eden

You may recall this event known also as “The Christmas Star”. I don’t want to get to distracted, but I need to mention the fact as Christians we have been believing a lie in regards to Dec. 25th, the winter solstice, and birth of baby Tammuz and its Pagan origins. So we can now see that the Age of Aquarius is really a cosmic mindset of astrology and its followers becoming “Enlightened” for mankind to become fully aware and capable of that which was promised to him (mankind) in the Garden of Eden by the “nachash” the “Serpent” or “The Luminous” serpent/lizard like being. Genesis 3:4 “you shall be like gods“.

The ancient text of the Old Testament are full of the examples of those that practiced the worship of the stars (heavenly bodies). We can follow throughout ALL of ancient history that these same gods and deities have remained the same they just have changed their name from one dominant culture to the next, yet they all are derived from the same point of origin. A “Fallen” group of angelic beings that have one goal; to lead as many as possible into “rebellion” against The Creator of ALL things…YHWH, I AM, EL Shaddai, GOD, The LORD, Yeshua (Jesus).

A Hot Iron sears away conviction!!

Notice in its definition The Age of Aquarius has to do with the mind becoming “Enlightened” or for their minds to be illuminated. Friends, to be clear, apart from GOD there is No wisdom, there is No knowledge, there is NO enlightenment there is only depravity. In 1 Tim. 4:1-2 it declares that those believing the lie taught by demons and deceiving spirits have their “conscience” seared as with a hot iron. Then again in the book of Romans 1:24-32 they have been given over to a “Depraved” mind. When individuals and groups collectively have “lost their minds” there is no longer the opportunity to debate, discuss, or reason. They have become deluded, and reprobate so that they will continue in the deceptive Lie from the father of lies. 2 Thes. 2:9-12

As this world becomes more and more enveloped in darkness, wickedness, and pure evil those that declare themselves children of “Enlightenment” that are in reality the sons and daughters of darkness, gain more and more control and influence. The only remedy, the ONLY Hope is for the children of God the sons and daughters of The Father of Light to break out and Shine forth radiantly and in glorious splendor to oppose and to overcome, so that those that may be saved have that opportunity.

Everything now in America and even the rest of the world is on the doorstep of The Church, to not only Hear what The Spirit is saying, but to purify themselves and with ALL Power and Boldness make known the Truth of The Gospel. By obediently going into all the world preaching and teaching and in demonstration of power the Resurrected Living Savior of humanity. And Declare:

Jesus is The Christ!

And that HE IS LORD!

Unity, Good and Evil

Behold, How good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in Unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron. Running down the edge of his garments. Psalms 133:1-2 NKJV

When Moses anointed Aaron, it wasn’t like we might see in some church services were they dab a little fingertip of oil on your forehead. No, this was a horn full of scented Holy anointing oil and it flowed from the top of his head cascading down off from his beard, down his garments to his feet. He was fully enveloped in its oiliness and saturated in its fragrance. As it was for young David when Samuel was instructed to fill his horn with oil and go to the house of Jesse. We, as the body of Christ, must find the Truth that Unifies and strengthens us as a whole as we head face first into this moment in time. For we too must become wholly (completely-fully) Unified and baptized that is immersed in His Holy Spirit and His Presence.

For it is in this unity that we together can Stand and Stand Firm against ALL that is approaching. Hear the sound of the shofar, the call to gather together, to rally or assemble, to unify as One body! Every Jew and Gentile called by His Great Name!

We know from scripture that in the end time there will be a unity of those not of the faith, a global unity of humanism, void of the Living God. There will be One world economy, One world government, and One world religion. This evil Unity this New One World Order is built upon the foundational eternal truth found in Genesis 10 & 11. 11:6; states “If as One people…then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them”. (See “Nimrod Rising” Post) . So where are we in this deciding moment in world history? Economy; the worlds economies are on the verge of collapse and already there is in place a plan to implement a replacement, traceable digital currency for the masses a One World Economy. Religion; the Unified World Religion under the implementation of Pope Francis is setting the stage for a One World Religion via the False Prophet. Government; as socialism has become the “mantra” of the uneducated, blinded and deceived, pushed by almost every nation on the planet as well the Pope, we can “See” we are on the cusp of a One World Government, it will have a Centralized location , with Ten regions of power. And will ultimately pave way for the one the world has been waiting for, its Faux Messiah, the devil incarnate.

The False Prophet is in our midst, the Economies of the world need saving, and Globalists do not want borders. Unity of the “humanistic” spirit as well as every deceptive teaching that denounces God The Father and His Christ will draw all, except those called the elect. Those chosen and not given to the deception of the world. So it is with a sense of urgency the Church must Rise and find its Unity in Him who is The Way, The Truth and The Life. To rescue as many from the fire, and deliver from the wrath that rests upon the children of disobedience. Jude 23, Eph. 5:6

In UNITY Pour out in full measure The Horn of Oil Upon us O LORD!

For The Great Harvest and The In-Gathering is at hand.

Psalms 36:5-7

There is No place where Your Love cannot find me.

Your LOVE OH LORD reaches to the heavens,

I put My Trust in YOU Alone

Your FAITHFULNESS stretches to the skies.

Your RIGHTEOUSNESS is like the Mighty mountains,

Justice, Truth, Compassion, and Mercy You are Righteous O LORD

Who can fathom the depths of Your Wisdom

Your JUSTICE like the Great Deep

I will find my refuge in the Shadow of your Wings!

You are my Shelter, my Fortress, my Shield, and My Strength

I will

WORSHIP YOU MY GOD and My KING!!!

Worship His Majesty, The KING of Kings and LORD of Lords!!!

Build Up or Tear Down

Feb.14, 2021

Proverbs 14:1

The WISE woman BUILDS her house, but with her own hands the FOOLISH one TEARS hers down.

When we observe what is taking place in the United States in this day and hour, this time and season. We can discern with clarity, that there is a “woman” a body of people that are willingly TEARING down the house, the Nation, the foundation has been assaulted and is cracked and crumbling. Those that are intentionally removing All vestiges of our founding and attempting to indoctrinate an untrue past. Are as declared by God’s wisdom FOOLS.

There is an old saying “Do not throw the baby out with the bath water”. Yet that is exactly what the deceived, blind, and misguided are doing to this once Great nation. If they do not realize the destruction of their ignorance, or worse the diabolical plot. Before too long there will not be any likeness to the foundation and heritage of freedom and liberty that this House was Built upon.

So take an earnest look inside of your heart and soul, discern around you the time and season and the blatant attack on our Founding Documents (foundations) the framework of the house, are you willing to Build Up or to Tear Down. Will you be Wise or a Fool?

May God open our eyes to see, our ears to hear, The Truth of His WORD, will Light be exalted in our land as a Light set upon a hill, or will darkness and sin be exalted and bring a reproach upon us and leave the land desolate…barren of liberty and free will and choice.

A Divinely Appointed Time

One year ago today, I walked where My Lord and Savior may himself trod many steps. I have known from my journey’s beginning in Him that I would one day go to the land of promises and covenants, to the place where, of all the possible places on planet earth, He chose to manifest himself in the flesh. Not to discount the numerous times and places He showed and revealed himself in various forms and fashions to His servants, the prophets. Yet here He chose to let A Great Light Shine in the darkness. (Mt. 4:15-16, Is. 9:1-2)

Cabin reflection time, at Ramot Hotel on NE hills over looking Sea of Galilee
Across The Sea of Galilee looking across to Tiberias

From The Sea of Galilee to the calling of His first disciples. Across the calm tranquil sea arriving at Magadala. The images and surrounding lanscape one cannot help but imagine His Majesty revealing the Kingdom of His Father to simple men and women.

The City of Capernaum, where Jesus called Simon (Peter) his brother Andrew, James and John sons of Zebedee (Thunder).

Fishers of Men Mt.4:19
Capernaum: Village of Nahum (Comfort) Mt. 4:13
Possible site of Peter’s house. Mk. 1:29-34
Lk. 4:31-38

In Mathew 11:21-24 Jesus sentences woes upon this place for the miracles and mighty demonstration of God’s grace and mercy that were performed by Him, yet many people remained unrepentant. How sad that even at that time inspite of what people were seeing with their own eyes refused to believe. Yet for others, faith came alive!

Mary of Magdala became one of those followers of The Way. He still is declaring His Father’s Kingdom for those that are willing to hear. It’s hard for me to imagine that 52 weeks have past since this divinely appointed time. For shortly after our return home we, the entire globe, faced the Corona “pandemic” lockdowns. Israel is still on stringent lockdowns, meaning that very few have been allowed back to visit these places and to experience the bible come to life. I thank The Lord for fulfilling His promise He spoke to my heart so many years ago, it truly is a remarkable place to experience.

I pray you will hear His voice, the knock on the door of your heart. And invite him in. May His peace fill your hearts and minds. And that we all may grow in wisdom and knowledge of the glorious riches with which the Father has given to us in Him.

In Christ Jesus Holy Name

Peaceful Strength

What does it mean when the Word of God talks about a Patient Endurance? In 2 Corinthians 1: 3-7 Paul speaks of Praises to The LORD so that we would be reminded of His compassion and His comfort in ALL our troubles, because our trials and troubles are testings at work in us to be more like Him, so that through Him He might provide ALL comfort to others. Notice it does not indicate that we as believers would never face anymore difficulties or burdens in life, no on the contrary Paul indicates not only will we, but we should and then also be thankful and bring Praise for the tribulation we currently are going through. “For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort over flows”. v5

In verse six it states the purpose is to produce (bare fruit) of a Patient Endurance which is the demonstration of a Peaceful Strength that only comes from above. Paul goes on to say in 6:3-10 of the same book. That WE are to present ourselves…just as we present ourselves to The Lord as a Living Sacrifice we are to present ourselves to others so as not to cause a stumbling block, in EVERY circumstance! We grow and mature through the adversity. We are often told the Word is the only offensive weapon we have as believers, not true, it declares right here that both hands are to be armed with “weapons of righteousness” in the Power of God, in the Holy Spirit. When we display a Peaceful Strength it is the evidence of a patient endurance reflecting The Lord Jesus Christ and the Power of Almighty God.

Revelations 1:9 I, John, your brother and companion IN the suffering and Kingdom and Patient Endurance that are OURS in Jesus. We are called TO A Patient Endurance just as we are called into His Kingdom as well as his sufferings for a Glory that far exceeds anything in this world. In 13:9,10 John describes this peaceful strength like this, He who has an ear, let him hear. If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword he will be killed. This calls for Patient Endurance and Faithfulness on part of the saints. Again, whatever the circumstance we go through we must give a greater witness and testimony to Him who has already overcome, He who lives in and through us. In 14:12 in regards to the mark of the beast, how will we ever develop the tenacity of faith in humble obedience to reject and discard the enticing benefits of the mark of that beast and or his name if we DO NOT equip ourselves for A Patient Endurance A Peaceful Strength, not of our own but by His Spirit, ALONE!

In Psalms 23 the image of this Peaceful Strength is described like this.

HE is My Shepherd, He leads, He guides, He is with me and restores my soul, righteousness is my path because His Name is Righteousness. Even in the shadow of death I have nothing to fear because HE IS WITH ME. Now here is the important part of the picture, HE prepares a table for me IN the presence of my enemies. Imagine such a Peaceful Strength as we REST IN HIM in the middle of the battle, the war, the tribulation, HE desires to set a banquet feast for us to partake with HIM. Our Peace Our Strength come from knowing that HE IS…EL Shaddai The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HE IS GOD!

Sea of Galilee, Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus may have fed the 5000! We Should Trust HIM fully.
