ALIENS, DEMONS AND YOU…

“There will be a double disclosure. We will not only find out about the Black Magic and the evil “Aliens” who have empowered the Cabal that has enslaved us, we will find out about the White Magic and the good “Aliens” who have empowered the Alliance that has saved us…”

2 Thessalonians 2:9 The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, 10 and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing.

What is about to happen on earth is going to be shocking. It is going to be supernatural beyond your wildest dreams…

Matthew 24:37 As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be.

Jesus said that it will be as it was in the days of Noah. In context, he is speaking of the element of surprise… Noah had been preaching for years, yet it took the people by surprise. Jesus was talking about our day, in his day. The Prophets spoke of our day hundreds of years before that. Many have been preaching about our day for many years. I am writing about our day even now… yet it will take most people, including and perhaps especially, Christians by surprise.

If you understand Genesis 6, if you have read the book of Enoch, you know that there is more than just the element of surprise in Jesus comment, “As it was in the days of Noah…” In the days of Noah, we had a group of beings on this planet who are called Benei HaʼElōhīm, the Sons of God. Whether you call them fallen angels or aliens makes no difference, they were not human, but they mated with human women and produced a bastard race of giants called Gibborum. These Gibborum took over the human race and nearly extinguished it.  Scripture says:

Genesis 6: 9 (KJV) These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and PERFECT IN HIS GENERATIONS, and Noah walked with God.

This is one place where KJV got it right… This is what the Hebrew says. The meaning of the phrase is that Noah was still fully human, he had no Nephilim blood… His descendants could bring forth the promised Messiah, something impossible for the mixed breed people who made up the majority of the creatures dwelling on earth.

[Did you know that “Atlantis” refers to the Antediluvian world? Noah lived in what the world now calls Atlantis. This was an advanced society… They could and did build the pyramids… Something that we, with all of our technology and equipment, could not do today!]

“As it was in the days of Noah…” gives us the first clue that they are returning. As a matter of fact, they are still with us.

Genesis 6: 4 The Nephilim were on the earth BOTH IN THOSE DAYS AND AFTERWARD, when the sons of God came to the daughters of mankind, who bore children to them. They were the powerful men of old, the famous men.

“In those days” refers to the days of Noah. “and afterward” refers to the time after the flood. We find them in the promised land when the Children of Israel went in.

 Numbers 13:33 We even saw the Nephilim there–the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim! To ourselves we seemed like grasshoppers, and we must have seemed the same to them.”

God told the Israelites to kill them all, but we know that they did not do that. Goliath and his brothers were Gibborum, sons of the Nephilim. Archaeologists are digging up skeletons and skulls of Gibborum in Peru today. Native Americans in the United States tell of a race of cannibalistic giants, with six fingers and six toes, who once peopled the North American Continent.

More than that, the Illuminati… the Luciferian Elite… the Cabal… whatever you want to call them, the families who run the world today, claim to be Gibborum… descended from the Nephilim. This is why they are so very careful to intermarry… to protect the bloodline. Mayor Von Rothschild made all four of his sons marry first cousins…  This is why the marriage of Prince Charles to Dianna was considered an unpardonable sin… her family is not of Nephilim blood and her children may or may not carry the blood necessary to rule… They are, in their own minds, “The Elect,” those born to rule over the “Useless Eaters.”

This Cabal, and the Reptilian Aliens (demons) with whom they claim to communicate, have ruled the world since the days of Queen Elizabeth the First. If you are interested, check out the life of John Dee, her Court Wizard. (The original guy with the beard and the pointy hat) He rediscovered Black Magic, and the Elite have used it ever since as a means of communication with their precious Reptilian Aliens and the source of the power and authority by which they rule.

To give you an idea of the power of John Dee, not once, but twice, the Spanish sailed huge Armadas to England to conquer her. Queen Elizabeth asked John Dee what to do. He told her not to worry about it and to do nothing. Both times the Armada got within sight of the British on the shore. Both times a huge storm came up and destroyed the Spanish Armada… Think about that one… That power remains with the British Throne and the Cabal that rules America.

That power remains with the British Throne and the Cabal that rules America.

This is where I am going to start telling you things that you may or may not choose to believe…

That Cabal, with their dark satanic powers, is about to collapse and die. Not only that, accompanying that fall will come the full disclosure of the Aliens (Nephilim) who have empowered them and to whom they are related. They are going to be outed and defeated by a new Alliance. The head of that Alliance will become the Antichrist… he is “The Man of Sin.” The miraculous and the Supernatural events that accompany that “Disclosure” are going to be powerful beyond belief… and God himself is going to send  a great delusion so that those who do not now love the truth will be deceived. God says that they will be deceived and that it is He who will cause them to be deceived.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, 12 so that all will be condemned—those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness.

The miraculous and the Supernatural that accompany that “Disclosure” are going to be powerful beyond belief…

But there will be a double disclosure. We will not only find out about the Black Magic and the evil “Aliens” who have empowered the Cabal that has enslaved us, we will find out about the White Magic and the good “Aliens” who have empowered the Alliance that has saved us… Again, God will send a great delusion upon all who have not loved the truth , and they will believe the lie.

Somehow, I believe that the leader of the great alliance that rescues us will be killed in the fight… but he will be resurrected by the leader of the “Good Aliens” who rescue us from the Cabal and the “Evil Aliens” that have enslaved us… and they, the Good Aliens, will be marrying and giving in marriage up until the day that Jesus splits open the Heavens and returns with his Saints to reign.

Revelation 9: 11 They had as their king the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he has the name Apollyon.

The Bible has told us what we need to know. Everything must be run by the Scriptures. The Bible does not tell us everything but there are other books and other sources that can add to that knowledge. There are men to whom God is revealing these things in these last days…

I would hope that some of you will check out the things I say here… that you will search for more knowledge and that you will run everything you learn past the Scriptures… Much of what you learn… much of what I have written here, will violate the sacred interpretations of past professors of prophecy. That is unimportant and should be ignored… The only question should be: “Does this violate or agree with Scripture?”

The only question should be: “Does this violate or agree with Scripture?”

I trust that what I have written here, while somewhat based on extrabiblical texts, will do both… it will violate interpretations of Scripture made in the past by venerated theologians and it will agree with and compliment Scripture.

My prayer is that, even if you refuse to believe this now, when it happens, God will jog your memory and you will be aware of the truth and avoid the delusion that will overwhelm and overcome the church…

Busy Days

These are busy days, both in prophetic news and on a personal basis. On a personal note, my wife and I had been “House Sitting” for several years. The beginning of this year, that situation came to an end and we purchased a small, two bedroom house in an older neighborhood. Our mortgage is much less than the going rate for rent in the neighborhood but a 100% jump over what we were used to paying… As a result, I have come out of retirement and  am once again employed. A new job, a new house (with a to do list thousands of pages long) and this ministry, I hardly have time to breath!

On the Prophetic news, we have:

  • An embattled President Trump who continues to win almost every battle.
  • The seventieth anniversary of Israel has come and gone…
  • The completion of the Jubilee year… 51 years for Jerusalem.
  • The American Embassy in Jerusalem. (With new embassies opening at a good rate.)
  • We have buildings, train stations, and an entire neighborhood in Jerusalem being named for President Trump.
  • Rabbis in Israel are identifying Trump as “Mashiach ben Yossef” the one who paves the way for Mashiach ben David… the guy the Bible calls the Antimessiah and the “Man of Sin.” (You could think of Mashiach ben Yossef as a Luciferian, militarized, John the Baptist type, paving the way for the Antimessiah.”
  • We learned that the Jews, quoting the Prophets, say that it will be a man from Ephraim (The Ten Lost Tribes) and NOT a Jew from Judah who fills the role of Mashiach ben Yossef and destroys the Ishmaelites… (Since we do not know which gentiles are and which gentiles are not from Ephraim, we cannot discount anyone except the Jews of Judah…)
  • Trump pulled us out of the Iran deal.
  • The US is leading Israeli bombing raids on the government of Syria.
  • Damascus is barely holding on. The prophecy that “Damascus shall be a heap of rubble,” is almost complete.
  • The enemies of Israel surround him…

This Watchman on the Wall thing will never be a boring job…

Anyway, thank you for joining me on the Endtime Thinker!

IN DEFENSE OF BILLY GRAHAM

“Fifty years of Gospel sermons, a righteous life, faithfulness to the same woman for life… none of this counts for anything to the damning bigots…”

Jesus loves, saves and builds up. Satan hates, condemns and tears down. Who does your example tell us that you follow?

Three lines of attack have been leveled against Billy Graham:

  1. He is a Mason.
  2. He is a Catholic.
  3. He denied that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

There are a lot of different stories told, but they all fall under one of those three headers.

Dr. Graham never drank, or caroused, or cheated on his wife. No one ever accused him of lying or stealing. He was never rich, he was an employee of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which was run by an independent board. Dr. Graham never sat on the board and he never ran the organization that bore his name. He lived all of his adult life in the same house, on the same farm in North Carolina… It was comfortable but not even close to anything you could call a mansion or a mega-home… There really was very little that one could accuse the Evangelist of doing or being that was even slightly wrong.

There are many Masons in Heaven because Billy Graham was unafraid to visit their lodges or preach the Gospel there. There are others in Heaven because he rented Masonic Halls to preach in when he was starting out… So, there are photos of Billy with Masons… “Aha! That will give ammunition to the narrow minded little bigots!” I can almost hear Satan shouting for joy… Never mind that if you were ever there, or if you listened to those programs on tape, all the good man ever did there was what he always did, preach the Gospel.

Some may not understand but when Billy started to preach, Catholics were threatened with their immortal souls if they so much as attended a picnic sponsored by an Evangelical Church. Reading a Gospel Tract was a mortal sin and they were absolutely forbidden to read the Bible for themselves. Most Catholics went to confession every week, ate fish on Fridays and never missed Mass. It was a closed society… Good Catholics would run in terror if you started to talk about Jesus…

Then, Billy Graham went to see the Pope. The Pope liked Billy and the world reeled in shock and awe when the Pope gave Catholics everywhere the right to go to Billy’s crusades and listen to him do what he always did, preach the Gospel… Millions of Catholics found Jesus at those crusades… some of them left the Catholic Church, many stayed, but they had met Jesus and that changed everything… But we have some old photos of Billy with the Pope and that is enough to bring out the bigotry and hatred in those willing to listen to the Devil…

Then, as an old man, Billy was interviewed on TV. Perhaps he was not as sharp as he once was… Maybe he never saw the trap, but he answered the question anyway… Many have pulled two or three sentences out of those interviews and used them as a reason to damn his soul and ruin his reputation. What he really said, in context, is that a man or a woman in any religion, being convicted by the Spirit of God, could find God and find salvation through the Grace of God, even if they had never heard the Name of Jesus…

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

God has witnessed to all men everywhere through Creation. Because of that witness, God says that they are “without excuse.” If they are without excuse when they reject God, would God not save those who, based on that witness, call out to him for mercy? Would God condemn those who call on him because they have never heard his Name?

No one doubts that salvation is in Christ alone. The only issue at stake here is, is it necessary to know what his Name is? Is it Jesus, the Son of God, who saves or the “magic” in his Name? Is it Jesus as both God and man who saves or is his name a magic mantra that saves those who pronounce it correctly?

Would Jesus reject a sinner who cried out to Him, confessing his sins and begging for salvation… just because the Missionary who was supposed to tell him about the Son of God stayed home and worked for McDonalds? No, God says that He has called all men everywhere… Can a Muslim or a Hindu who sees God in the Creation and calls out for mercy be saved? Billy and I maintain that God is just. Some would tell me that I am lost because I pronounce the Name of God in English and not in Hebrew… I do not believe that any more than I believe that God rejects penitent sinners because they have never heard his Name… But a couple of phrases, uttered by a very old mind, in a very old man, are enough to provide all the witness the bigots need to damn his eternal soul…

…and yes, I know that those who see his Name as a magic mantra will condemn me as a heretic.

Fifty years of Gospel sermons, a righteous life, faithfulness to the same woman for life… none of this counts for anything to the damning bigots… that is nothing compared to some old photos with Masons and the Pope and a TV interview made when senility was already setting in… No, that is far too important… Preaching the pure, Bible Gospel for fifty years to 250 million people (live) and billions on TV, counts for nothing… The 96 million people who testified that they met Jesus at his crusades are all liars, damned to the Pope’s Masonic Hell… Just ask a Facebook Christian…

Not me, no thank you… I will stand on a life lived in the public eye with not so much as a single scandal. I will stand on fifty years of documented and recorded Gospel sermons in which no heresy can be found. I will stand as one of the millions who attended his crusades and found the message faithful and true. I will stand with the billions who listened to him preach on TV, and although I was already saved, I will stand with the millions who found Jesus under his ministry.

Most of the haters will never read this, their minds have been snapped shut… A few videos, by those who’s jealously forced them to try to destroy that to which they could never attain, have convinced them that Billy was a heretic… I really want to be there when they try to explain that one to God. That should be good for more than a few laughs…

If your god has led you to hate and destroy such a man… you might look for another God…

THE OVERCOMER-IN-CHIEF

Along came an unlikely hero. All of the good, Christianesque people stood up and cheered for the hero who could not win.

Novels are not random, they follow a strict formula. You can buy books on how to write a novel. There are computer programs that let you simply fill in the blanks in order to write a novel. If you are watching a movie, it was written first as a story and it follows very strict guidelines.

If you are watching politics, you will see that same formula displayed, day after day, week after week, and year after year… What you are seeing is theater, scripted in Hell and played out by puppets whose strings are pulled by the Luciferian Elite, whose strings are pulled by demons, whose strings are pulled by Lucifer himself…

For thousands of years, the best stories have all followed the same formula. There is always a hero who starts out downtrodden, persecuted and facing impossible odds. There is always a bad guy who wins big, at least at first. He / she is evil to the core but is living well, comfortably and securely. The bad guy is directly responsible for our hero’s problems. All of the other characters are either for our hero or for the bad guy. If it is a good story, at least one of our hero’s helpers is really a bad guy in disguise… He pretends to help our hero but is secretly working for the bad guy.

As the story progresses, our hero, through hard work and honest endeavor, overcomes the forces of evil. In the end, the spy is outed, and the bad guy gets what is coming to him… he dies, or he goes to prison but he loses big, our hero shines and the reader / viewers stand and applaud with tears running down their faces. For ninety minutes in a movie or for a couple of days with a book, they have lived and believed that which is false… a story made up in the mind of the author and / or the director.

  • Kennedy was a good guy.
  • Johnson was a mistake.
  • Nixon was a good guy who went bad.
  • Ford was sort of good.
  • Carter was a Baptist Sunday School Teacher and bad guy.
  • Reagan was a superhero.
  • H. W. Bush was a good pagan.
  • Clinton was a happy hooker.
  • W. Bush rescued us from Clinton.
  • Obama was the president from Hell.
  • Trump is the oppressed hero who just keeps on knocking out the bad guys… The Overcomer-in-Chief.

They are all related to King John, and they are all related to each other, and they are all related to George Washington, and they are all puppets manipulated by the same Devil.

The people… the good, Christianesque people were oppressed under the evil Obama. A super bad lady named Hillary was all set to replace Obama with the promise of being even worse than he. Along came an unlikely hero. All of the good, Christianesque people stood up and cheered for the hero but he could not win. Night after night after night, the experts lined up to tell us that he could not win. The night of the election, all of the experts agreed that he could not win… but he did win and all the good, Christianites and Christianettes lined up and cheered. The unsaved, ungodly, millionaire televangelists lined up to pronounce him God’s Prince, Cyrus reincarnated and the one destined to save America in her sins so that she could sin some more…

But, as in any good movie, it can’t be that easy… For a year all of the good, Christianesque people sat nervously chewing their fingernails as their hero was beaten down by evil people claiming that he had won because Putin voted for him in Chicago…

And now? Now, he beats up on the bad guys and wins against all odds… Now he is the hero again and all of those evil Democrats and FBI Agents / Hillary Staffers are going to go to jail!!! Stand up and cheer… This is the best moment in the whole movie!!!

And the Good Christianesque people, all of the Christianites and Christianettes are hanging on every word as Satan pulls the strings and dances his puppets across the stage…

What a story! Wow… Lucifer will walk away with all the Oscars this year, and the Church will cheer and clap and cry…

FIGHTING TEMPTATION

Some people just love rules… but Christianity is not about rules… Christianity is all about Jesus…

I REMEMBER FIGHTING LUST.

As a young man, I had a terrible fight with lust and sexual sin. I remember sweating and crying and calling out to God for strength to fight temptation. I even remember screaming at God on occasion…

I remember yielding to temptation and then weeping in agony of soul over my sin…

I remember thinking that it is impossible to obey the commandment… the harder I tried to obey, the more I prayed for strength, the stronger the temptation became…

I know that, while your besetting sin may be different than mine, you can identify with my struggle…

But, now I know. I was right, it is impossible and the harder you try to obey the Law the stronger the temptations grow… That is an accurate observation. That is undeniable truth.

Paul tells us, in 1 Corinthians 15:56, that the Law is the power of sin. In other words, trying to obey the Law makes sin stronger…

In other words, trying to obey the Law makes sin stronger…

However, Scripture gives us the secret to victory!

Those who are led by the Spirit are not under the Law…

When I took my eyes off the Law and fixed them on Jesus, I found freedom from sin for the first time in my life! When I stopped concentrating on the rules and started to follow Jesus, temptations lessened, and I found myself free to obey… The harder I followed after Jesus, the less I fought with lust and sexual sin…

When I began to deny myself… when I took up my cross and started to follow Jesus, the girls who used to tempt me so badly almost disappeared… I just didn’t notice them anymore… My mind was on higher things, bigger things, better things…

It is a secret that will set you free! Jesus has freed you from the Law of sin and death…

It is a truth set in stone. The more you try to obey the law, the stronger the temptation becomes. The closer you get to Jesus as a living, breathing person, your friend, confidant and big brother, the weaker temptation becomes…

Some people just love rules… but Christianity is not about rules… Christianity is all about Jesus.

Let me share something… Jesus does not steal, fornicate or commit adultery. If you follow Jesus, you won’t do those things either. But it isn’t about following the Law, it is about hiding yourself in the one who fulfilled the whole law and died to set you free…

Follow Jesus… Just follow Jesus.

David…

 

MIXTURE: The Babylonian Gospel

The Babylonian Gospel and mixture is the only message I ever heard. Even five years ago, if you had asked me to tell you what I believed, much of what I told you would have had its roots in Baptist Denominational Distinctives, the Masonic Religion and the Great American Lie. Even after years abroad, where I was confronted by a Gospel not mixed with American Patriotism, much of what I believed was more American than Christian.

My Grandfather was a 33rd Degree Mason and a “Lifetime Deacon” at First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach, Florida. I do not know how many of the men on that board were Master Masons, but I would imagine that it was a clear majority. This was an upscale church… a church where the Rich and Famous could feel at home.

It was my Grandfather and his Masonic buddies who planned the new Sanctuary as a Greek Temple, designed and built with strict Masonic Architecture…

We would sing the right hymns. The basics of the Gospel were preached, but it was all about walking the aisle, shaking the Preacher’s hand, repeating a canned prayer and getting dunked in the ornate, marble baptistry. With “Once Saved, Always Saved,” as a core doctrine, what you did after that was relatively unimportant. A strict moral code was taught but more from the Masonic point of view than the Gospel. The thrust being that you need to live right because it is good for your country, society and your community, and living right will make you healthy, wealthy and wise.

It was always assumed that if you had walked an aisle, shaken the preacher’s hand, repeated the prayer and got dunked, you were going to Heaven… No one dared question that formula.

Some of the old men in the church had fought in World War One. Most of the adult men had fought in World War Two and or Korea. The young men were going off to Vietnam and returning, often in a box. No matter what the truth about Vietnam, Korea or any other war, if you were a Christian, you supported America, the Flag and the latest war. The most ungodly and unchristian thing a young person could do was to question America. They probably never said it but we all knew that America was the Kingdom of God and God was an American.

The Methodists could lose their salvation, but they too thought that God was an American. The Presbyterians knew that God was an American and a Presbyterian… We all could agree that to be a good American was very important and that if America did it, it was God’s will and God’s way.

On the Fourth of July, the National Guard Color Guard would march the American Flag down the Aisle and we would all stand and sing the National Anthem as they stood at attention, flags in hand… The Pride was palpable…

At Christmas, the children would perform a passion play, baby Jesus in the manger, under the Christmas Tree…

For Easter, we would hold a Sunrise Service. That was followed, at Sunday School time, by an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids and then the 11:00 Church Service where we would all sing “Hallelujah, He arose!” at the top of our lungs…

Then, I went off and became Pentecostal… I spoke in tongues, prophesied and saw real miracles… But they were still sold on the America thing, Christmas Trees and the Easter Bunny. More than that, they were frightened and legalistic to the max. I could tell how spiritual a man was by looking at his wife. If she was ugly, wore dresses to the floor, kept her head covered and wore neither jewelry nor makeup… that was a Holy and Righteous man!

The question that continually surfaced was, “If I get in an accident and I say a bad word and I die before I can repent, will I go to Hell?” Not pleasant people to be around…

Over the last twenty years, I have watched Pentecostals go through a great change. They started a rapid flight away from legalism. Unfortunately, they passed the truth going ninety miles an hour and slid right into what some have called “Sloppy Agape.” The current, approved term is Hyper-Grace. This is a politicly-correct religion… You NEVER preach on sin or call for repentance. You preach on the importance of accepting everybody and offending nobody. Scriptures to be read and sermons to be preached are carefully scrutinized. If there is any way that a verse could offend anybody, it is not read. If there is an offensive phrase or word in a sermon, it is scratched out and never spoken. Only Happy Verses and Happy sermons are allowed.

It no longer matters what you wear. As a Sailor, a lifetime ago, I saw Pole Dancers better dressed than some of the young ladies in church…

Altar-Calls are for Happy Prophecy, Blessing and Miracles, NEVER for repentance or salvation.

But still, the lie of American Patriotism pervades the American Church. You cannot be a Good Christian if you are not a strong patriot. You cannot have a cross unless it is draped with a flag…

President Trump must be from God… America and the Kingdom of God are one and the same… God is American and Jesus lounges around Heaven in red, white and blue pajamas… Surely Trump is a Prince, sent from God to save God’s Country, in her sin, and grant her time and freedom to sin some more…

I see that attitude, in posts and comments on my Facebook Page…

Jesus asked, “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” (Luke 18:8) I am leaning more and more to the negative reply… “No, none or very little.”

If you just go back, with a prayerful attitude, and throwing out everything you were taught, read the Book, you will find that it is very simple and straight forward… I think that you will discover that America is not the Kingdom of God but rather Babylon. Jesus is nothing like what you always thought He was, and being a Christian has nothing at all to do with walking an aisle, shaking a Preacher’s hand, repeating a little prayer and getting dunked in a baptistry…

Not even an ornate, marble baptistry…

David…

NOTHING CAN SAVE US NOW!

Everybody knows war is coming, but some still hide from the facts, spouting off meaningless phrases anchored in wishful thinking and hopeless optimism…

I am sitting here, in South-West Florida, and watching a massive line of thunderstorms approaching. It is getting dark, the wind that was blowing here a few minutes ago, has stopped. There is the distant peal of thunder and I can see black clouds reaching up more than forty thousand feet. I can look at the radar and by watching its size and its advance, I can predict, with one hundred percent accuracy, that it is going to rain. At the moment, the wind is still and not a drop has fallen… It is the calm before the storm.

IT IS THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM

As it is, literally at the moment, in the natural world outside my window, so it is in the Spirit World. The Angels are at war and it is about to break out and devastate the world. Threats are building, the signs are in the Heavens. Everybody knows war is coming, but some still hide from the facts, spouting off meaningless phrases anchored in wishful thinking and hopeless optimism. As certainly as the rain that now beats on my window was coming, war is now upon us.

AS CERTAINLY AS THE RAIN THAT NOW BEATS ON MY WINDOW WAS COMING, WAR IS NOW UPON US.

Is the threat to the West Coast real or will the nukes, launched from a submarine, suddenly turn New York and Washington DC into heaps of ashes? I do not know but as certainly as I knew that the rain was coming, I know that war is here. Gabriel who announced the birth of a Savior, has been replaced by Michael, the leader of the Army of Heaven. The warrior has replaced the messenger in the sign of the Son of Man. War is in the Heavens.

WAR IS IN THE HEAVENS.

This war will be short but violent. I would be surprised if this war lasts longer than seven months. This war will be nuclear. All the “Fire and Fury” that Trump promised Kim Jong Un, will fall but it will not be limited. It will fall on every nation in the world, including, and perhaps most of all, the United States. When it is over, 2.5 Billion people will be dead and every nation on earth will lower their flag and replace it with the putrid, pale blue of the United Nations…

EVERY NATION ON EARTH WILL LOWER THEIR FLAG AND REPLACE IT WITH THE PUTRID, PALE BLUE OF THE UNITED NATIONS…

There are so many threats and the Media jerks us around from one to the other. Last week it was North Korea, this week it is White People, recently it was Black People and before that, Muslims and Russians, Mexicans and Immigrants. Sometimes the housing market is about to implode and sometimes it is the Dollar. Some weeks the enemy is Petroleum, other weeks it is Global Warming, or if the weather is cold, Climate Change, or a New Ice Age. The question remains, whom shall we fear?

THE QUESTION REMAINS, WHOM SHALL WE FEAR?

“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28

All Hell is about to break loose. The truth is that no one can pull the trigger until God gives his permission. What is about to happen, will happen to the United States. It will be accomplished by people even more evil than ourselves. Even though our destruction and death is accomplished by demonic forces working in conjunction with evil people and nations, it will be the Hand of God, falling in judgment.

IT WILL BE THE HAND OF GOD, FALLING IN JUDGMENT.

If we were repentant and if we were a righteous people, God would protect us. For two-hundred years, God protected the United States on account of his Church and a godly people. Today, we are perhaps the most evil nation on earth and the American Church is in full blown Apostasy. God’s Hedge of Protection was lifted on 9/11/2001 and the Devil is now free to do his worst.

GOD’S HEDGE OF PROTECTION WAS LIFTED ON 9/11/2001 AND THE DEVIL IS NOW FREE TO DO HIS WORST.

When the trigger is pulled, I believe we will see nuclear weapons falling on a land that is too divided to respond or defend itself. That will set lose a disastrous civil war among the survivors in a land with no working Government to stay the violence… It is not one of the threats but all of the threats that will soon hit us. God’s Word speaks of the climate going crazy. If North Korea nukes us, Russia and China will join in with them. The internal danger will be from Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Wimpy Whites, Blacks, Latinos, Muslims and immigrants… Every group full of hate and desperate for power and dominion. We will fall in a single hour. They will call those who die in that hour, “The Blessed!”

WE WILL FALL IN A SINGLE HOUR. THEY WILL CALL THOSE WHO DIE IN THAT HOUR, “THE BLESSED!”

Revelation 18:
Then I heard another voice from heaven:

Come out of her, My people,
so that you will not share in her sins
or receive any of her plagues.
For her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
Pay her back the way she also paid,
and double it according to her works.
In the cup in which she mixed,
mix a double portion for her.
As much as she glorified herself and lived luxuriously,
give her that much torment and grief,
for she says in her heart,
“I sit as a queen;
I am not a widow,
and I will never see grief.”
For this reason her plagues will come in one day—
death and grief and famine.
She will be burned up with fire,
because the Lord God who judges her is mighty.

Perhaps the rain now pounding on my window is a sign of things soon to come…

THREE SINNERS

This is a fictional tale of three sinners. If one of them sounds a lot like you, it might not be coincidence.

Our first sinner is named Wiley. That might not be his real name but its what he goes by, that’s all I know. When Wiley was twenty-three, he wanted to be an actor. He was homeless, lived in a box behind the downtown Walmart in LA. He did odd jobs and sold a little weed on the side to make a living. Wiley had accepted Jesus when he was eight and his parents were Christian but Batman was Wiley’s real hero.

Wiley had been invited to a happy Church a few months before… They had a good music group, the girls were pretty and their Dance Costumes skin tight… The Preacher just kept telling Wiley that Jesus loved him just the way he was… Wiley wanted to go to Heaven and the preacher assured him that Jesus loved everybody. Nobody ever said anything but Wiley figured out that if he sang real loud and put money in the plate, he would go to Heaven when he died.

Our Second sinner is named Calvin. Calvin accepted Jesus when he was eight and attended church with his parents. Calvin always did what he was told, graduated from High School with a 3.5 GPA and joined the Army. Calvin loved the Army. It was so very simple, they told you what to do and you did it. Rules seemed to be very important in the Army and so Calvin obtained a book on military law. While his buddies were out drinking, Calvin was reading his very own copy of the UCMJ… the Law.

At twenty-three, Calvin was back from the Army and starting college. With the GI Bill and help from his Dad, Calvin would not even have to work. He might even be able to do a Bachelor’s Degree in three years. In four years in the Army, Calvin had only been in trouble one time. When the Sergeant had told him to go into the Gas Chamber and breath Tear Gas, Calvin had told him that that violated Section 4.3, Subsection b of the UCMJ and was therefore, an illegal order. The Captain had disagreed and Calvin spent thirty days confined to base… By the time he got out, even Calvin had put that behind him.

Harvey was, I suppose, the worst sinner of all. At 23, Harvey was just getting out of prison. He was barely turned 19 when a seven-year-old kid from down the street made fun of the way he walked. Harvey was a Christian from a Christian family. Harvey was mostly a good kid but something in his bones wasn’t quite right… Harvey did walk funny. When the kid teased him like that, Harvey forgot how big he was. For just a minute, Harvey was an angry little boy. He had backhanded that boy so hard that if shattered his jaw.

Now 23, Harvey had served three years in the State Penitentiary. He was a Convicted Felon, Assault and Battery on a Child Under Twelve Years of Age. It was in prison that Harvey had developed the deep and lasting relationship with Jesus. A relationship he would enjoy for the rest of his life. The day he got out of prison, the Local Paper put him on the front page, just to remind the community what kind of man he was. When his Dad pulled the car into the driveway, there were a hundred reporters and curious people in his yard. He opened the door to a huge roar as unintelligible questions were thrown at him. Harvey motioned them to be quiet, and assuming he would make a statement they could make fun of, they quieted down. “Jesus loves me, this I know.” Is all Harvey said before pushing his way through the crowd and entering the house.

FAST FORWARD:

Twenty years later, two out of three  of our heroes are married; all three have kids. Although they live in three different cities, from coast to coast and although they do not know each other, our three gentlemen have faced identical situations. (I can make that happen, it’s my story.)

Wiley woke up with a bit of a hangover and started towards the studio. Not a famous actor, Wiley made a living as the instantly recognized face of the Termite in the perpetual ads of LA’s major Pest Control company, and he still sold a little weed on the side to help feed the kids… Leaving his live in girl of twenty years sleep, he headed out for breakfast at McDonalds. Entering the door, a pretty young lady smiled and asked him to join her after he got his food. Thirty minutes later, Wiley had called in sick at work and headed off with the young lady for some weed and a little sex.

Six months later, the mother of Wiley’s children confronted him. Slapping her on the back-side, Whiley said, “You ain’t tied down, move out if you want… Jesus paid it all and I’m just having a little fun…”

Calvin’s wife was starting early menopause and had been very cranky lately. She didn’t let him get out the door before she started yelling about something. In no mood for breakfast at home, Calvin thought to stop at McDonalds for breakfast on his way to the University where he served as Disciplinary Dean. It was his job to enforce the rules and he had ruined the life and career of more than one young person in the fulfillment of his duties. When Calvin hit the door at McDonalds, a young lady smiled and invited him to join her. Adultery was wrong; Calvin knew the Ten Commandments by heart and had sworn to obey them all. This might be a little dangerous but it didn’t really break any commandments and it would be nice to talk with a lady who wasn’t screaming at him…

Six months later, Calvin’s wife confronted him. “You can’t leave me!” he cried. “I’m the Dean at a Christian University and a Deacon at the Church, you will ruin me! You don’t know how hard I tried not to sin, I cried real tears and I begged God to give me the strength to overcome. God didn’t do anything, He just let me fall into sin! I can’t believe it, He knows how hard I have tried to serve him and how much I have suffered working here instead of Harvard… Now you are going to leave me and embarrass me in front of everybody… How can you do that to me?”

Harvey slipped on his boots and kissed his wife goodbye. She had been more than a little cranky lately but he kissed her anyway. He would let her sleep and catch a bite at McDonalds on his way to the welding shop. It wasn’t much of a job but it paid the bills. It was hard for a Child Abuser to find work anywhere and his boss had kept him on for these twenty years anyway. As he came up to Main Street, something caught in his spirit. He didn’t know how to explain it but he had learned that this was the voice of God. Turning right instead of left, he pulled into the parking lot at Denny’s. As he entered the restaurant, he saw his Pastor with several of the men from the church. They invited him over and the Pastor even put his breakfast on the church credit card. Harvey kept trying to figure out what that was all about… nothing important had happened at that impromptu meeting… Why was he there?

Six months later, Harvey’s marriage was stronger than ever. Harvey would never know about the pretty young woman who sat waiting for him at McDonalds…

WHEN THE BROOK DRIES UP

“It happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.”

In the 17th Chapter of 1 Kings, we find an incredible story. Elijah goes before King Ahab and makes an absurd claim: “As the Lord, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.” You do not make such a claim unless you know that you have heard from God. Ahab must have laughed. If the King had believed the Prophet, he might have had him killed or imprisoned and tortured, but he let him go.

Then, Elijah has a problem. If it does not rain in Israel, it does not rain on the Prophet. If there is a famine in Israel, Elijah has nothing to eat either. God, however had a plan and He told the Prophet, “Go away from here and turn eastward, and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. It shall be that you will drink of the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to provide for you there.” That sounds as improbable as saying that it will not rain again until I say so.

Elijah, however was obedient and went where he was told. We read, “So he went and did according to the word of the Lord, for he went and lived by the brook Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he would drink from the brook.” That is a comfortable position. The nation is in a famine but the Prophet has bread and meat and a supply of water… This is supernatural! One might live out their life in such a situation. But, on this earth, nothing lasts forever.

We soon read, “It happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.” Panic Time! God has ceased to supply. The Prophet is where God told him to be, doing what God told him to do. He is comfortable and cared for… This is the life! Then, suddenly and without warning, the Prophet has a real problem. Without water, the Prophet will die and God has turned off the water. Can you hear the Prophet crying and fussing as he goes out to eat breakfast and finds that there is not even enough water to fill his cup?

I can picture myself in such a situation. I don’t know if I would be mad at God or just scared. There is no water here and there is no water in most of the nation… What do I do now? I have been there. I have been very comfortable, knowing that I was where God wanted me to be, assured that I was doing what God wanted me to do, blessed and provided for by the hand of God, when, without warning, the job and the income stopped. That is a frightening place to be. What happened? What did I do wrong? Why is this happening to me? Doesn’t God care?

Have you ever been there?

The fact that I am writing this and you are reading it is proof that such situations, while very uncomfortable, are neither permanent nor deadly. I will be honest with you though, those situations are very, very uncomfortable. Perhaps you are there now. If you aren’t, the greatest possibility is that you will be soon. When the Brook dries up, it is not time to scream or fuss, it is time to move on and to move up.

1 Kings 17:1 Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and stay there; behold, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.” 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath, and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks; and he called to her and said, “Please get me a little water in a jar, that I may drink.” 11 As she was going to get it, he called to her and said, “Please bring me a piece of bread in your hand.” 12 But she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I have no [e]bread, only a handful of flour in the bowl and a little oil in the jar; and behold, I am gathering a few sticks that I may go in and prepare for me and my son, that we may eat it and die.” 13 Then Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from it first and bring it out to me, and afterward you may make one for yourself and for your son. 14 For thus says the Lord God of Israel, ‘The bowl of flour shall not be exhausted, nor shall the jar of oil be empty, until the day that the Lord sends rain on the face of the earth.’” 15 So she went and did according to the word of Elijah, and she and he and her household ate for many days. 16 The bowl of flour was not exhausted nor did the jar of oil become empty, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke through Elijah.

When the Brook dried up, the Prophet got up and moved. God told him where to go and what to do. God not only told him what to say to the lady but He gave this poor widow lady the faith to believe what this stranger said, and the good will to serve the Prophet ahead of herself and her son. Now, the Lord has elevated the prophet’s situation. Elijah is no longer living in a cave, he is living in a house. No longer is he eating what birds drop for him, he is eating bread, fresh out of the oven. No longer is God taking care of just the Prophet, He is taking care of the Widow woman and her son as well.

When your Well dries up, don’t panic. Continue to be grateful. Continue to praise God but don’t just sit there. Ask God for directions. Listen carefully and then do what God tells you to do. God may now promote you. The God who has been taking care of you, may now decide to use you to take care of others. God may ask you to challenge others with impossible requests. If God tells you to ask a widow woman for her last piece of bread; ask her for her last piece of bread. If God tells you to promise that He will care for her and continue to provide, tell her so.

That of course, will not be your exact situation. However, you will be challenged to do the unlikely and the uncomfortable.

Sometimes we forget that Elijah and others in the Bible were human.

Please don’t think that it did not cross Elijah’s mind that it might rain the day after he spoke to Ahab or that the Widow might starve to death after baking him a cake. Elijah was a prophet. Elijah was obedient but he was also human, just like you are.

If you don’t believe me that he and the other prophets were human, let me close with one more story…

We should go on to the 18th chapter of 1 Kings. There we find a familiar story. Elijah prays and the rains return, then he challenges the prophets of Baal to a test. One prophet of God against 400 prophets of Baal. They build altars, slaughter bulls and put them on the altars. Elijah tells the prophets of Baal to pray for fire to come down from Heaven and consume their offering.

This should have been easy. Baal was the god of rain and thunder and lightning… this was Baal’s bread and butter. They prayed and cut themselves (like Muslims do today) but nothing happened.

Elijah encouraged them to continue, suggesting that Baal had stepped out to go to the bathroom.

They continued for hours but nothing happened. Then Elijah had them pour water all over his offering. When Elijah prayed, fire fell, consumed the sacrifice, lapped up the water and even destroyed the stones of the altar….

The people then got together and killed all 400 prophets of Baal. Not a good day for the pagans…

But then… we get to chapter 19…

 19:1 Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and even more, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.”

3 >>>And he was afraid and arose and ran for his life<<<

and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there. 4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, “It is enough; now, O Lord, take my life, for I am not better than my fathers.”

After all of those miracles, Elijah was afraid of a demonized, pagan woman…

Have you been there?

God came to Elijah and the Angel cared for him there. This was not the end of his ministry. I share this with you because such times and situations are common to all God’s people. When the Brook dries up, get up and move. Face the enemy and challenge the righteous. Listen to God and do what He tells you to do. Are you afraid? So was the Prophet of God. Have you run for your life? So did God’s Prophet. These times of pain are not the end… as a matter of fact, it is most likely a promotion in disguise.

Get up, wash your face and get moving. God is on your side.

David…

 

 

HAPPY PREACHERS, OFFERING PLATES, AND HELL BOUND MEMBERS

If you teach a man to praise God but never speak of the gravity of sin and the need for repentance, you create a strange being who will praise a God he does not know, pay his tithes, make big offerings and go to Hell when he dies.

How many faithful church members will spend an eternity in Hell, right beside a Pastor who based the subject of every sermon on its effect on tithes, offerings and church attendance? How many human beings have been damned to a Devil’s Hell by the purveyors of Church Growth Seminars?

That which will grow a church will often damn its members.

A “Good Preacher” today, can start with 12 members and grow a church of 5,000.

Jesus started with 5,000 and ended up with 12.

I am convinced that there are churches with 5,000 members where less than 12 will make it to Heaven.

God is Love but God hates. To preach the love of God but never mention the Wrath of God is to condemn real men and women to eternal punishment.

We preach acceptance and tolerance, we would never offend. Jesus called the Governor a fox, a lady asking for his help a dog, and the most righteous men of his day, “Whitewashed Tombs, full of dead men’s bones” and children of the Devil.

Scripture talks about “speaking the truth in love.” We interpret that, “Never speak the truth if it might offend.”

John 3:16 speaks of God’s love. John 3:18 speaks of condemnation. A sinner who understands John 3:18 will be desperate to find salvation in Christ. A sinner with no understanding of John 3:18 will think of John 3:16 as a “nice thought” but hardly necessary.

If you teach a man to praise God but never speak of the gravity of sin and the need for repentance, you create a strange being who will praise a God he does not know, pay his tithes, make big offerings and go to Hell when he dies.

The same God who said that He will bless you coming in and going out said that if you disobey him, He will curse you and everything you lay your hands on. No, that blessing is not based on your tithes and offerings, it is based on obedience, repentance, salvation and the Spirit of God. You can make huge offerings but insist that that which God calls sin is not really sin, continue in a sinful lifestyle and bust Hell wide open when you die.

No, I am not speaking of Judaistic Legalism. I am speaking of agreeing with God that what He calls sin is really sin, asking forgiveness when you fall and accepting God’s help in overcoming. I am talking about taking up your cross and following Jesus. I am talking about fixing your eyes on the Author and Finisher of our faith. I am talking about doing what He does and not doing what He does not and would not do. I am talking about a very real relationship with a Living God.

It is better to end up with twelve members who are all going to Heaven than 5,000 members who are all going to Hell. It is better to work a secular Job in order to eat and take people to Heaven than to live luxuriously off of tithes and offerings and take people to Hell.

Call Sin, sin and evil, evil, but don’t get hung up with a single sin. If you spend more time condemning homosexuality than you spend condemning gossip, you are out of balance and in danger of falling. Is the homosexual act a sin? Yes, of course but a Gossip in your church will do more damage than ten thousand homosexuals on the street.

If you are willing to offend, if you are willing to call sin, sin, if you will preach the Wrath of God, you will find that those you preach to feel the need for a Savior and come willingly to Jesus. If you refuse to preach the whole Gospel and preach only messages that will fill the pews and the offering plates, you will end up with a church full of very happy, Hell bound sinners…
