A Relentless Storm Continues…
I have been away for quite some time; it has been 15 months since my last post. A great many things have happened in my personal life since June 2008. Most recently my wife and I bought a home quite far away from the big city. Remarkably, during a period of time of worldwide economic crisis-we were able to see our dream home built from the ground up. The many blessings of God continue with a second grandson still in diapers, and a second granddaughter soon to be born.
I have recently started another fast- in view of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. When this remembrance day approached I felt compelled, like I have not in quite some time to return to this blog and again take up the standard that the Lord has given me in Advancing Christ’s Kingdom. My book, Thy Kingdom Come- Here and Now! will be self published, hopefully in the not-too-distant future. Anyone interested in reading the first 16 chapters in draft form, can locate them via the tag cloud in the right panel.
Most of us remember well exactly what we were doing and where we were when the terrorist disaster in New York City occurred on September 11, 2001. Since then we’ve seen a radical administration change in our federal government, which has led to deepening socialism in the political arena. There were a great many things that went wrong during the last administration, and substantial disappointment in the policies that were generated during what was supposed to be a conservative leader at the helm.
Now many of us realize that although Christians should be involved, we can not hold great expectations in any administration: either Republican, Democrat, or Independent. And yet we are required to be actively involved as salt and light in all aspects of our contemporary society. What we can trust in is the atoning work of the cross of Jesus Christ, and His soon coming Kingdom. I will therefore begin again to post on several blogs especially this one, since the entire body of Christ needs to be concerned about wholeness in spirit, soul, and body-which is the Lord’s desire. He said to me ‘Make this mountain whole’… beginning with myself (a daily work in progress)- and to all of us in intimate relationship with the Lord, the greater Body of Christ in preparation of the Glorious Bride.
In my continuing study of the Ministry of Dr. Chuck Missler, I had the privilege of listening to a Strategic Trends Conference via iTunes and my iPod. I was literally blown away when I heard the three broadcasts that were done by Walid Shoebat. This Middle Eastern gentleman who was born in Bethlehem, Israel- was a former Palestinian terrorist. Through the prayers of his faithful Christian mother and his Christian wife, the penetrating work of the Holy Spirit, and his attempt to refute the Holy Bible-he came to a saving knowledge of the truth: that the Bible is God’s Word and Jesus Christ is the only Mediator between God and man. He came to the full realization of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
He has written an outstanding book: God’s War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy, and the Bible. I read several books per month, and can say unequivocally that this is the most important book I have read in the new millenium. In this 500 page work he carefully compared the God of the Bible and the God of the Qu’ran showing conclusively that not only are they not the same God, but are diametrically opposed in every aspect of character. Mankind is created in the image of the one true God who is Jehovah. He has revealed himself in human form in the person of the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. My prayer and challenge to all who see what is going on worldwide, with radical terrorism gaining strength and power as each month passes, that you would feel compelled to purchase this book (either linked to his name above), or even on Amazon.
There is a very peculiar prophecy that dates back to the revolutionary war period and the birth of the American Republic. General George Washington experienced an open vision during an angelic visitation. Please read the full text here.
There are two Kingdoms in conflict, and those of us who faithfully study the Holy Bible will see the endtime scenario fulfilled, potentially in our lifetime. I believe that when our grandchildren are adults- the Book of Revelation, Joel, Daniel, Isaiah, Zechariah… and all the other prophetic verses in multiple books of Scripture will be fulfilled. The bad news is that the storm will be unrelenting and the judgment of the nations will be painful– because of rampant disobedience and the ignoring of the revealed will of Jehovah God. Our adversary gains strength as the lukewarm church continues to be asleep at the wheel. Let us remember those who died 8 years ago on this date as the victims and heroes that they forever are. Their legacy and that of those who have shed their blood on foreign fields, both men and women- young and old… must be lifted up before the Lord in prayer and fasting. We must obey His Word through His servant and brother of the Lord, the Apostle James:
James 4:7… Therefore submit to God. Resist the deviland he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands you sinners, and purify your hearts you doubleminded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourself in the sight of God and He will lift you up.
Please know that this entire blog from day one in 2007 is positive, hopeful, and biblically sound with many edifying and uplifting posts. This is somber because of this special day- and what truly looms on the horizon for the Destiny of America, this world system, and the true people of God. Blessings and Grace be yours in the Lord Jesus Christ… and always Guard your Peace.
For deeper insight into how GOD the Father sees His children; to better understand the elementary principles of Christ (Hebrews 6:1-3); the ‘mysteries’ of Christ’s Kingdom; and our individual and corporate calling, commission, and empowerment- please review my first published book and the Table of Contents on the Amazon website linked here via Book Title: “Thy Kingdom Come- Here and Now!”
