“Make Ready For Revival” by Richard Owen Roberts

"...In The Day of Thy Power..."

“…In The Day of Thy Power…”

Make Ready For Revival
  By Richard Owen Roberts

The following is edited from a message given at the Heart-Cry for Revival Conference in April 2013 at The Cove, Asheville, North Carolina U.S.A. Used by permission.

We were asked earlier, “What are the prospects of the Congress calling the nation to a solemn assembly?” We do not really have any hope in the Congress or the Senate. But do you have any hope in yourself? I have been preaching for more than 65 years and have never yet succeeded in bringing a revival to pass. I surely have no hope in myself. I look at the other speakers, whom I respect and honor and admire, but I do not have any hope in them either. I do not have any hope in the church. But I remember well the words of the psalmist, “Turn us again, O God, and cause Thy face to shine and we shall be saved” (Psa. 80:3, KJV). The hope was never in us. It is crystal clear that God can do what we cannot. Oh we believe that, of course, but I doubt that we believe it to the level that we ought.

Let’s go directly to Psalm 80 and look at it with the great hope, “Turn us again, O God, and cause Thy face to shine and we shall be saved.”

"Cleanse Me Oh GOD..."

“Cleanse Me Oh GOD…”

The Opening Petition (vv. 1-3)

Now notice how this particular psalm begins: “Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel…” (v. 1). When would one ask God to listen? Well, clearly at the time when there is reason to think He is not doing so. Have you faced the reality that we are living at a time when God is by and large not listening? This is surely one of the reasons why revival is so desperately needed. So, “Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel….”

The psalm continues, “Thou who dost lead Joseph like a flock.” Do you have the impression the church is being led like a flock? These wild innovations that have appeared over the last several years do not in any way indicate any knowledge of God whatsoever, let alone divine leadership. Because God is not leading us, we have invented ways to lead ourselves that make it look as if He is. We have created lousy substitutes for the reality of a God who is with us, going before us, leading us like a flock.

Notice now these words: “Thou who art enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!” (v. 1). Now again, when would you ask God to shine forth? Would it not be at the time when He was not doing so?

Consider the very language here about the Lord being enthroned above the cherubim. You remember that in those days when indeed God was in that tabernacle in the wilderness and then in the temple itself, the great high priest was to go into the holy of holies once a year to make sacrifice both for his sins and the sins of the people. It was a dangerous thing to do because in that holy place the presence of God shined so greatly no man could endure it. Therefore, they first put in a smudge pot in order to obscure the presence of God. And before the high priest entered to fulfill his duties, they put a cord around his ankle so that if he offended God and was struck down, they did not have to go in to pull his body out, but could draw his dead body out by the cord. “Thou who art enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!” – this psalm was written at a time when God was turning a deaf ear to the prayer of His people and withholding His glory from His people’s midst.

The psalm goes on, “Stir up Thy power, and come to save us!” (v. 2). You would have to be literally out of your mind to think that God is doing His best for the American church. Indeed, what it looks like is God is saying to the American church, “Since you are not willing to do things My way, I will let you do things your way and see how you like it.” And we are very clever and immensely resourceful. We have been able to deceive the majority of the people into thinking that God is with us. We keep announcing that He is, even though we do not have any evidence of it, and the people believe us because we are so good at it. But when the church is as foul as the world, when the prayer meeting is all but gone, when true radical transformation is close to nonexistent, we have reason to think God is not stirring up His strength and coming to save.

The Jewish People & End Time Prophecy

The Jewish People And End Time Prophecy
  By David R. Reagan

The most important signs of the end times are the ones that relate to Israel because God uses the Jews throughout the Scriptures as His prophetic time clock. By this I mean that very often when the Lord is revealing an important event that will take place in the future, He will point to the Jewish people and state that when a certain thing happens to them, the important event will also occur. The Jews, therefore, are one of the key focal points of Bible prophecy.

The Scriptures reveal the Jews as “the apple of God’s eye” (Zech. 2:8). Their land is described as “holy” (Zech. 2:12). Their city of Jerusalem is termed the “center of the nations” (Ezek. 5:5). They are pictured as the wayward wife of God (see Ezekiel 16 and the book of Hosea). And the Bible makes it clear that they will be the object of both God’s wrath (Jer. 36:7) and His grace (Zech. 13:1) in the end times.

The panorama of prophecy that relates to the Jews is breathtaking. It applies to the past, the present, and the future. It demonstrates God’s love and grace as nothing else does except the Cross itself. Paul was so overwhelmed by God’s patient determination to bring a remnant of the Jews to salvation that he cried out in ecstasy: “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!” (Rom. 11:33).

Let us take a look at the incredible prophecies that pertain to the Jewish people, and let’s begin with the prophecies that have already been fulfilled.

The Abrahamic Covenant is Irrevocable! Study Genesis Chapter 12

The Abrahamic Covenant is Irrevocable! Study Genesis Chapter 12

Fulfilled Prophecies

    1) Dispersion – The Jews were warned repeatedly that they would be dispersed worldwide if they were not faithful to their covenant with God. Consider the words of Moses: “The Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other…” (Deut. 28:64; see also Leviticus 26:33).

    2) Persecution – The Lord also warned the Jews that they would be persecuted wherever they went. Again, the words of Moses are graphic in this regard: “Among those nations you shall find no rest, and there shall be no resting place for the sole of your foot; but there the Lord will give you a trembling heart, failing of eyes, and despair of soul” (Deut. 28:65).

    3) Desolation – God promised that after their dispersion, their land would become “desolate” and their cities would become“waste” (Lev. 26:33). Moses put it more graphically when he said, “the foreigner who comes from a distant land… will say, ‘All its land is brimstone and salt, a burning waste, unsown and unproductive, and no grass grows in it’” (Deut. 29:22-23).

    4) Preservation – But God in His marvelous grace promised He would preserve the Jews as a separate people during their worldwide wanderings (see Isaiah 66:22; Jeremiah 30:11; 31:35-37). Isaiah puts it in a colorful way. He says the Lord could no more forget Israel than a mother could forget her nursing child (Isa. 49:15). He then adds that God cannot forget Israel because He has them engraved on the palms of His hands! (Isa. 49:16).

God has fulfilled all four of these prophecies during the past 2,000 years. In 70 A.D. the Romans destroyed the city of Jerusalem and took the Jewish nation into captivity, desolating the land and scattering the Jewish people across the face of the earth. As prophesied, everywhere they went they were persecuted, with their persecution culminating in the Nazi Holocaust of World War II.

But God also preserved the Jews, and the fulfillment of this prophecy has been one of the most remarkable miracles of history. No other people have ever been so dispersed and yet been able to retain their identity as a nation.

Current Prophecies

We are privileged to live in an age when God is fulfilling many promises to the Jews. What a testimony this is to the fact that God is alive and well, that God is on His throne and in control, and that God is faithful to His promises.

    1) Regathering – The Old Testament prophets promise repeatedly that the day will come when God will regather the Jews to Palestine (see Isaiah 11:10-12 and Ezekiel 36:22-28). This remarkable regathering of the Jews from the four corners of the earth has occurred in our lifetime. World War I prepared the land for the people as the control of Palestine was transferred from a nation that hated the Jews (the Turks) to a nation that was sympathetic to their return (Britain). The Holocaust of World War II prepared the people for the land by motivating them to return. In 1900 there were only 40,000 Jews in Israel. By the end of World War II this number had risen to 800,000. Today, it stands at nearly 6 million. The Jews continue to come, but there is no doubt this is a prophecy that is being fulfilled before our very eyes.

A Nation Born in a Day!

A Nation Born in a Day!

    2) Nationhood – The prophets stated that when the people were regathered, the nation of Israel would be re-established (see Isaiah 66:7-8). This occurred on May 14, 1948. This is the cornerstone prophetic event of our age. It is an event that prophetic scholars have pointed to for 400 years amid much scoffing and ridicule by those who did not believe that Israel would ever exist again as a nation.

Jesus singled out this event as the one that would signal His soon return. His prophecy is contained in the fig tree parable (Matt. 24:32-35) which He presented in His Olivet Discourse. The day before He delivered this speech, He had put a curse on a barren fig tree, causing it to wither (Matt. 21:18-19). This was a symbolic prophecy that God would soon pour out His wrath upon the Jewish people because of their spiritual barrenness in rejecting His Son.

The next day Jesus reminded His disciples of the fig tree. He said to watch for it to bloom again. In other words, He said watch for the rebirth of Israel. He indicated that when the fig tree blooms again, He would be at the gates of heaven, ready to return (Matt. 24:32-33).

Equally significant, He added an interesting observation: “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place” (Matt. 24:34). What generation? The generation that sees the fig tree blossom.

We are that generation. The fig tree has blossomed. Jesus is at the gates.  Read More…

This lengthy post incorporates three very important articles concerning the death, burial, and resurrection of our LORD Jesus Christ.  There are imbedded links to the authors’ websites- Roy A. Reinhold and Dr. Chuck Missler.  In this most Holy Season of the Passover and Resurrection (erroneously given the pagan name of Easter), it truly behooves the children of the Kingdom to fully know the truth and its many evidences, so as not to be confounded by scoffers or lead astray by man-made traditions that contradict the Biblical Record and the ultimate truths found only in our Risen Saviour.

May this precious time give you great hope and increase your faith in the Love of ABBA Father, the finished work of Christ on the Cross of Calvary where His Blood paid the price for our redemption, and the Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit to fully transform all of our lives, in HIM… 

Good Friday is a Myth;  the LORD Jesus Christ Died on a Wednesday!!

by Roy A. Reinhold

“…Perhaps you ought to examine the evidence and decide for yourself; be like the Bereans who were complimented in scriptures for examining the teaching of Paul in light of the scriptures to see if it was so. There is clear, concrete evidence in the scriptures for a Wednesday crucifixion; you be the judge.

3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS IN THE HEART OF THE EARTH

One of the most common questions asked by new Christians is, “How could Jesus have been in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights if He died on a Friday afternoon and rose before sunrise on a Sunday?” Most Christians duck the question, since at most they can only come up with one day and two nights (Friday nighttime, Saturday daytime, and Saturday nighttime in our measure of days). If they add in the Friday daytime they get two periods of daytime, even though Jesus would have died in the late afternoon on a Friday. This late afternoon death is consistent with the Passover lamb being killed between the two evenings of Jewish teaching. The lamb was killed between 3 and 6 PM on the afternoon of the 14th of Abib/Nisan and prepared, because the 15th was the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which was an annual Sabbath observance (the first and last days of Unleavened Bread were annual Sabbaths in addition to the normal weekly Sabbaths). This search of the scriptures is important, not because it affects salvation, but because it answers the questions posed on whether Jesus kept His Word, and whether the Bible is true in this matter. A legitimate concern and question for all Christians!!  Read More…

“A New Season”- Prophetic Word of Paul Keith Davis

Our Spiritual Food, Partakers of His Divine Nature (2 Peter 1:4)

Our Spiritual Food, Partakers of His Divine Nature (2 Peter 1:4)

This is an important ‘Word’ of great encouragement and challenge to the Body of Christ, to prepare the true church for the great move of GOD that is prophesied in the book “And There Shall Be No Ebb” by Arthur Burt [Please see last post linked at the bottom].  Paul Keith Davis’ ministry website “White Dove Ministries” has multi-media resources (books, CD’s, DVD’s, Videocasts, and monthly newsletters) that are of tremendous value to those seeking present truth teaching about the Kingdom of Christ  manifesting at the End of the Age.  Access via link in ministry name.  For your edification…
A New Season
Paul Keith Davis
 
With the passing of our friend Bob Jones and many other powerful saints, there seems to be a clear message of transition and transformation being heralded by the Spirit. After Bob’s passing the Lord highlighted to me Philippians 3:20-21 saying:
 
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;  who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
 
By supernatural grace many will be transformed from a humble state into conformity with the body of His glory through the exertion of His power. This is a divine impartation that I believe will mark many in this season and change them forever. Paul clearly had such an experience on the road to Damascus. (See Acts 9) Jacob likewise was radically transformed at the river Jabbok. (See Genesis 32)
 
It will be like a baptism of fire coming upon those who have been set apart and prepared to be mightily anointed in this juncture of church history.  The Lord clearly has a strategic blueprint that is continuing to display His perfect plan and purpose for this age.  It is His roadmap to the Prince of Peace with signposts along the way to indicate progress.

Arthur Burt’s Word – “Greatest Move of God the Earth Has Seen!”

He is The Open Door to an Open Heaven...

He is The Open Door to an Open Heaven…

This just came to me this morning from the “OpenHeaven.com” website.  Something to seriously pray about, since the need is so very great in our troubled world and compromised church.

Bob Jones Death/Arthur Burt’s Word – Greatest Move of God the Earth Has Seen!

By Clay Sikes

Arthur Burt

The internet has been filled lately with a posting by Kathie Walters about a visit to the home of Arthur Burt in North Wales in 2009. Those who have known Arthur are aware of a WORD given him in the 1930s, referencing a great move of God that would be without ebb. His last little book entitled ‘No Ebb’ is a detailed understanding of that Word and the promise it represents. [NOTE: A PDF download of the entire Prophecy 'No Ebb' is available on brother Arthur Burt's website- linked via his name].  Arthur was told that he would be left in the earth long enough to see it begin. He is now 102, and returned home from the hospital today (2/14/2014) after yet another near death experience. Well known Prophet Bob Jones interpreted that Word as shown in the article written by Kathie Walters below. Bob Jones, in interpreting this Word, felt he too would see the beginning of this great move. He did! It is indeed happening, as forerunners this world over are now proclaiming. Bob’s death this morning at 6:22AM is a further sign, as God is birthing a new order, new season, new spiritual era for those open to receive it.

We are stepping into an accelerated time; a time of oneness with our Father – a union beyond human comprehension. As we yield to God’s Spirit and cry to Him for oneness, we will experience His Presence as never before. Rejoice, for the day of fullness is at hand!

In His Presence,
Clay

The Imminent “Psalm 83″ War

Everything is aligned for fulfillment!

Everything is aligned for fulfillment!

This critically important post concerns the Middle East turmoil about to explode, and specifically the nation of Israel in these Last Days.  Many of nations of the world including the United States are seeking to compel this tiny nation (the size of New Jersey in America)- surrounded by sworn enemies- to give up more land, in order to somehow bribe those who daily demand her destruction to establish a so-called “Two State Solution”.  This is doomed to failure again!  I have written several posts concerning Israel- that are linked at the bottom of this essay that clearly reveal the truth about this 66+ year old nation that was born in one day in fulfillment of Bible prophecy:

Isaiah 66:8… “Or shall a nation be born at once?  For as soon as Zion travailed, She gave birth to her children.”

This was historically fulfilled on May 14, 1948… and immediately five Muslim nations attacked her militarily to their great humiliating defeat.  Since then Israel has been attacked three more times (1956, 1967 & 1973), and again soundly defeated her enemies and gained more land in the process.  All who are privileged to study in depth the circumstances surrounding these four conflicts will walk away with the clear apprehension that Divine Intervention was involved at every turn, and that YHVH GOD sovereignly protected His chosen people, though most until now do not serve Him… yet! Therefore in light of the accelerating wave of prophecies reaching fulfillment, what  Biblical Christians should be asking is “What is on the near horizon in prophetic Scripture as to ‘the cup of trembling for all nations’?”  This book by Bill Salus and the two in-depth video interviews linked at the bottom of this post will answer this question and so much more.  I will post a series of brief excerpts from the book, and yet cannot recommend enough that each disciple of Christ should get a copy of this outstanding book and study it with your Bible in hand!

The True Ark of the Everlasting Covenant

Our Saviour, GOD, and King.  He is our Friend, our Brother, our Beloved, & our Betrothed!

Our Saviour, GOD, and King. He is our Friend, our Brother, our Beloved, & our Betrothed!

I have had the privilege of reading, studying, and posting on this Blog excerpts from the Biblical scholarship of Kevin Conner.  I cannot recommend his many reference resources more highly than to say that every single one of his many books will propel you into a much deeper and richer walk with the LORD Jesus Christ.  I will list a good number of his outstanding titles at the end of this blogpost.

This essay is critical to a true understanding of the Ark of the Covenant and its profound importance to all Biblical Christians, and the children of Israel who have yet to recognize their Messiah- our LORD Jesus Christ.  There is a ‘Great Awakening’ on the near horizon- subsequent to a world-shaking Revival in the true Body of Christ throughout the nations.  Once the slumbering church is jarred out of the stupor of lukewarm ‘sleep’, the full preparation of the Bride will begin in earnest.  So much to do… with so little time; yet GOD’s Grace is more than sufficient for our every need!

Philippians 2:9-11 "...EVERY knee shall bow... and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of GOD the Father."

Philippians 2:9-11 “…EVERY knee shall bow… and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of GOD the Father.”

The world will continue to be buffeted with one cataclysm after another, which our GOD will allow as many will cry out to the LORD and receive His comfort, provision, and needed strength to endure the ‘flames’ of adversity.  The innocent unfortunately will suffer greatly with the wicked, as we are in the midst of the beginning of sorrows [birthpangs] according to Matthew Chapter 24 (see parallel passage Revelation 6 entire).  The inevitable is drawing ever closer.  Still there are many as yet unfulfilled prophecies concerning the events that precede the true Rapture of the Church, and later the visible Second Coming of the LORD of Glory.  May this citation of the full chapter “The Ark of the Covenant” from Kevin Connor’s volume The Temple of Solomon bless you deeply with illumination from the Holy Spirit regarding your magnificent inheritance in Christ!  Read More…

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 28,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Love of GOD Is…

Unfathomable and Constant is His Love!

Unfathomable and Constant is His Love!

I have shared often that the Website OpenHeaven.com is one of the very best repositories of Kingdom Truth.  The Resources link has a great number of free PDF downloads (including my book), that will edify every truth seeker yearning for a closer walk with our LORD Jesus Christ, and deeper influence in His Body- and in the world in need of salvation.  This recent article by Elder Ron McGatlin WILL bless you tremendously during this Holy Christmas Season… and well into our awesome future!

May GOD bless you as you meditate on its significant truths,

for His Glory~ in Jesus’ Name, AMEN. 

The Love of God Is …

By Ron McGatlin

The mysteriously simple and yet profound love of God that comes unseen and unheard by the eyes and ears of natural man cannot be understood or even believed to exist apart from a supernatural work of Spirit God. Like the wind of the Spirit, pure love seems to come from nowhere and goes to an unknown somewhere. Yet like the natural wind, the results of God’s love are clearly experienced and can be seen.

For the maturing child of God, Father’s love is life, the source of all wellbeing and the substance of every breath and heartbeat.

Apart from the love of God there is only emptiness. Being separated from God is everlasting death. There is eventually only vast and dark emptiness in an existence on earth void of the experience of the manifest presence of the love of Father God. The life and love of God is within us in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.

And His Love Will Never Cease!

And His Love Will Never Cease!

Love and worship are inseparable.

Worship is the expression of love. Our lives are consumed in worship. There is no real worship apart from being consumed in the supernatural love of God. Love and worship know no bounds or limits.

Spirit, soul, and body saturated in God’s love will worship Him with every breath and in every moment of life. Our reason for being is, at least in part, to worship God in a supernatural love relationship with Him. As recipients of His love, our consumed lives filled with his love are poured out to Him in worship and in service to His world.

Through our love relationship with our Heavenly Father, in Christ by the Spirit, we are supernaturally strengthened to become His life on earth from heaven. No longer as mere fallen men and women but restored to the same oneness with the living God that man had before the fall of Adam.

To the level that we are consumed by His love, we will walk in obedience and thereby are lifted to a supernatural life in the Spirit that is above the sufferings and disorder of life in a hostile world. Because of our love-filled abundant life, we are hated without cause by those that are aligned with the enemy of God. Their desperate, insane hatred leads to increasingly violent persecution and martyrdom.

The Handshake that Never Brought Peace

Israel Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin, U.S. President Bill Clinton & PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat

Israel Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin, U.S. President Bill Clinton & PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat

Tensions continue to rise in the Middle East surrounding the so-called ‘Two-State Solution’ in the land of Israel that has floundered for decades.  Every attempt to resolve the ‘Land for Peace’ efforts have failed miserably thus far.  Leaders of Israel have made concessions that offend the heart of GOD (YHVH), because the Jewish people exist in the Holy Land due to the grace of GOD in fulfillment of End-Time prophecy (see Ezekiel Chapters 37 through 40 for the future WWIII, years after the Psalm 83 War that is on the near horizon!).  This post is a full citation of an important article by Steve Herzig in the Nov/Dec 2013 issue of the outstanding bimonthly periodical Israel My Glory  published by The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry.   Also at the bottom of this essay are links to additional critical posts concerning the Covenant people of Israel.  May all who read and study these in light of Scripture fervently enter into prayer with fasting according to a Song of David:

Psalm 122:1-9… I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the House of the LORD.”  Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!  Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together, Where the tribes go up, The tribes of the LORD, To the Testimony of Israel, To give thanks to the Name of the LORD.  For thrones are set there in judgment, The thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:  May they prosper who love you.  Peace be within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces.”  For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, “Peace be within you.”  Because of the House of the LORD our GOD I will seek your good. 

Never to be displaced again!

Never to be displaced again!

Eye on the Middle East- “The Handshake that Never Brought Peace”

“It was merely a handshake. But it was no ordinary handshake.  It was one of a kind, seen my millions around the world.  It was proclaimed as the event that sealed the deal that would alter the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East.  Many though it would finally bring peace.

Twenty years ago on the White House lawn in Washington, DC, Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Chairman Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin signed the Oslo Accords.  Since then, nothing has been the same.

The goal of the Oslo Accords was to “put an end to decades of confrontation and conflict… and achieve a just, lasting, and comprehensive peace.”  The formula was simple:  Israel gave up land for the promise of peace and recognition as a legitimate state.  So sure was the world it would work that both men received the Novel Peace prize.

Did it work?  The question is a sad joke.  In the 20 years since Oslo, three American presidents, seven American secretaries of state, five Israeli prime ministers, and two Fatah (PLO) leaders have come and gone.  Yet the two parties can’t even agree on a place to hold talks. Read More…
