A Call for men of Truth

1585350762-j__adamsThis country has had an abundance of men of wisdom throughout its history and we need to give up this ‘woke’ mentality in our schools and government and listen to them. President John Adams was such a man. By republican, he meant “those who favored the continuance of the republic made every effort to defeat the monarchists and to have republicans elected in their places”. He said the Bible was the pinnacle of morality and governmental policy that anyone could have. He was not referring to the Republican or Democrat Parties. That was why every one of the original 13 colonies used the Bible as their foundational document. And one Biblical word of wisdom was given by Jethro to Moses in appointing leadership.

Moses’ father-in-law, Jethro, said to him, “Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.” – Exo. 18:21

noah-webster-quoteWe have not taken this advice and as a result we have leaders who daily speaks lies, appoint those to high offices that speak lies, and pass bills whose titles say one thing, but the bills actually do another! What Noah Webster warned us about has come upon us! Isaiah also speaks of this condition to the Lord –

No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.” – Isa. 59:4

Dr. Fauci is a man who was appointed to high office in the health industry, having enormous influence over public policies, financial policies, and governmental policies. He demanded that we all wear masks, maintain social distances, and take the vaccine shots to prevent Covid19. He joined in shutting down anyone who questioned his proclamations and ostracizing them in their professional status. Now his actions have been found to be false and even he has admitted “that much of what those in authority have told the public regarding COVID vaccines was contrary to what he knew to be true.”

We are once again being subjected to lies from our government. As I wrote in a recent article, The WHO wants Control,

“The Biden Admin has Negotiated a Deal to Give WHO Authority Over US Pandemic Policies. Signatories (all who sign this agreement) also agree to support the official narrative in a pandemic. Specifically, they will “conduct regular social listening and analysis to identify the prevalence and profiles of misinformation” and “design communications and messaging strategies for the public to counteract misinformation, disinformation and false news, thereby strengthening public trust.”

Now we find out, according to FBI Director Christopher Wray that the Covid19 virus may have been leaked from the Wuhan China lab. Epoch Times journalist Roger L. Simon wrote this criticism of the WHO

WHO picture“President [Joe] Biden again cedes American self-governance to a corrupt globalist organization and bends the knee to the World Health Organization, which is in the pocket of communist China. If Biden prevails, the U.S. would be bound to hand over 20 percent of its medical supplies to WHO for global distribution. America would no longer be able to prioritize treatments for its own citizens—WHO will call the shots on which countries get what supplies. America is always last in the name of ‘equity.’ . . .Most often the reverse is true. When it comes to who would really profit from an agreement like the one on offer, it’s almost always the pharmaceutical companies and the aforementioned CCP, which long has had a great friend in WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.”

“On March 31, 2021, the WHO advised that “ivermectin only be used to treat COVID-19 within clinical trials.” After all, it’s virtually free.

Such restrictions on medical freedom advocated by the WHO and our CDC have led to egregious totalitarian acts such as one just reported by The Epoch Times’ Roman Balmakov: “Police Forcibly Remove Doctor from Hospital After He Endorsed Ivermectin.”

The worst part of the WHO deal is that it’s a rather obvious backdoor into global communism—and not an inconsequential one.”

There is also documented evidence of how WHO Chief Scientist changed a paper claiming the Wuhan Lab was not the source of the COVID19 virus. These are the people Bidden wants surrender U.S. sovereignty to. I would say this is evidence that he does not endorse choosing men of truth for positions of leadership! Thankfully, Wisconsin has one Senator who is standing for truth in this issue. But the Church needs to begin praying about this and letting their voice be heard if they want to retain American sovereignty over our health!

As revival seems to be breaking out around our country, I pray it will also spark a resurgence of the Church once again standing for truth being declared: truth about Jesus being the cure for sin and truth being required in those we place in positions of leadership.

Don’t Fool with God!

It is strange how actions from history continue to play themselves out in current times. But I suppose that is to be expected when men are rebellious, and their hearts are wicked. As Isaiah writes, God’s hand is not short! He is performing His promise to bring the Jews back to the land He promised them, but they continue to flout His words and resist Him. How you say? In one way, they continue spilling innocent blood as Israel has one of the highest abortion rates in the world.

“Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity.” – Isa. 59:1-3

Progressive leftist Jews are rioting against PM Netanyahu, and they are influencing hi-tech companies to pull their money out of Israeli banks and invest them U.S. Silicon Valley banks then claim Netanyahu’s plans are hurting Israeli economy. They are rioting in the streets and burning businesses. Amir Tsarfati calls them ‘demon possessed’ and wrote this –

 The leaders of the protest against the judicial reforms in Israel called for high tech companies to take their money out of Israel because of the “dangerous situation” the country will be in once the reform is implemented. Many listened and transferred their money to the Silicon Valley Bank. Today, that US-based bank collapsed! What Goes Around… Comes Around!

 Jewish Business wrote –

“Many Israel firms are taking their money out of the country out of concerns that the reforms could harm Israel’s economy. Many experts have said that should the judicial reforms pass then the world would lose faith in Israel’s democratic stability and so investors would not be as likely to invest there.

But God will not be thwarted. He placed Netanyahu back in office and He also controls the Banks! American headlines burst forth with news about bank downfalls –

DEVELOPING: Moody’s Cuts Outlook for Entire US Banking Sector, Puts Six Banks on ‘Downgrade’ Watch

“Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell raised rates seven times in 2022 for a total of 450 basis points – or 4.5% to hedge inflation. The sudden and dramatic rate hikes crushed the bankers invested in low-yielding mortgage-backed securities. Silicon Valley Bank was in FDIC receivership last Friday after investors withdrew more than $40 billion in a run on the bank. First Republic Bank’s stock tumbled on Friday and by Saturday customers were lining up to withdraw their cash. Moody’s put First Republic Bank (FRC), Zions (ZION), Western Alliance (WAL), Comerica (CMA), UMB Financial (UMBF) and Intrust Financial on ‘downgrade’ watch.”

I don’t know how much money these Israeli progressive leftists lost but it was enough to warn them not to oppose God!

May be an image of car and text that says 'RAWSALERTS #WATCH: Odd video as china citizens told to find shelter after started to rain worms #Liaoning| #China Citizens of the Chinese province of Liaoning china were told to find shelter after looked like started rain worms. Officials say this can happen when animals are swept up heavy winds or caught in water spouts. Another theory suggested what's being seen are poplar blossoms Liaoning China 0:13 3.1M views 1,297 655 11.7M 6,926' But God is not just concerned about Jews, He also cares about Gentiles. Very recently China brokered a deal between Saudi Arabia and Iran to renew their friendship agreement. Of course, China is trying to replace America in Middle East negotiations and Joe Biden is helping them with his lack of support for Israeli-Middle East peace talks. The day China brokered the deal, it began raining worms in China – a subtle warning wouldn’t you say?

These are just two reasons why you, or a country, should not oppose God. Yet our government does this on a daily basis. They tell lies, make false accusations, promote policies that God is opposed to – such as promoting same sex marriage, transgenderism, manipulate news companies to hide the truth from the citizens, falsify court documents and records, say they will do something and then purposely don’t do it!

But we can bring it down to a personal level as well. How often do we give our word to do something and then don’t do it? We are guilty of the same crimes before God as these governments. There is ample need for repentance all the way round. If we do not care for justice, or demand it of our elected leaders, then we will trust in lying words and receive evil. We will come to a point where we call evil good and good evil.

“No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.” – Isa. 59:4

I pray we will once again have enough of the fear of the Lord to listen to His word and do it! If we do not – then all is lost.

The WHO wants Control

Democrats and Virus We are once again in the midst of a medical emergency, brought on by the Biden Administration. It seems their ill-thought-out lockdown policies, mask policies, and vaccine policies were not enough especially since wiser medical authorities have now debunked every one of them! So, when will Americans, who once believed the Bible and its wisdom, once again look back to that wisdom?

“But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.” – Malachi 4:2

“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.” – Matt. 9:35

The Bible’s pages are full of promises of healing. All that is required is belief and the fear of the Lord, which simply means respecting His word enough to follow its requirements. Oh, there is one more thing, “the love of the truth” is also required. Jesus said, “I am the truth” and if you listen to Jesus “you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.” But I fear that another Scripture is now true about a majority of Americans. It is found in 2nd Thessalonians –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

WHO pictureNormally I would present them with the truth and if they still choose the evil way, I would say, “Their blood be on their own head!” As a Watchman, I did my duty to warn them but, in this case their decision will also affect me!  Because they don’t choose to believe God (and God sometimes uses doctors as well) for their healing and rather choose the government, we are all now facing the total loss of our freedoms to an unelected UN body that has proven ties to the Chinese government, the WHO (World Health Organization). The Biden Admin has Negotiated Deal to Give WHO Authority Over US Pandemic Policies. Signatories (all who sign this agreement) also agree to support the official narrative in a pandemic. Specifically, they will “conduct regular social listening and analysis to identify the prevalence and profiles of misinformation” and “design communications and messaging strategies for the public to counteract misinformation, disinformation and false news, thereby strengthening public trust.”

This means we will have lost our 1st Amendment rights to voice a disagreement with any of WHO’s policy decisions. It means all news media will essentially become a propaganda tool for WHO. And I’m sure they will also use it to shut down church actions based on Biblical truths as well. We will essentially become the vassals of the Chinese government.

noah-webster-quoteThese infringements, and many more, on our rights are happening because we failed to take Noah Webster’s warnings to heart and because pastors did not do their duty to warn from the pulpit about unclean candidates running for office under the faulty premise that God doesn’t care about politics!

It may be too late for our political system to stop Biden from going ahead with this WHO deal but, it is not too late for God to do something. All that is needed is for God’s people to cry out in prayer for His help and I strongly encourage you do do just that!

What to do about Government that Fails You

noah-webster-quoteGod told Zechariah, “These are the things you shall do: Speak each man the truth to his neighbor; Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace;” – Zech. 8:16 The phrase “in your gates” refers to government. But we are now saddled with a government that does not know how to speak the truth! It is somewhat the Church’s fault. This present government is simply an extension of the Obama government and 60% of so-called Christians voted for him and a good number of Christians also voted for Biden! The Church, in its rush to remain aloof from anything smacking of the political has not taught its members the truth that all our founding fathers knew and is best said by Noah Webster, writer of the famous Webster’s Dictionary. Paul said truth is the belt we must gird our waste with but without truth, your pants will fall down! Indeed, many in the Church do not love the truth enough to pay a price for it. And they are victims of the ‘lawless one’ Paul wrote about and because they did not love the truth God is giving them over to a strong delusion. Even though Republicans present themselves as more conservative than the Democrats many of them do not walk in the truth either.

Representative Chip Roy of Texas recently said, ‘I Am Tired of Words!’ The House Republican Blasts GOP Colleagues for ‘Doing Precious Damn Little’ About the Border. He asked “Will Republicans honor their campaign commitments to secure the border – yes, or no? What I am seeing right now from my Republican colleagues does not give me faith that they will stand up in the breach as did those men who stood on the wall at the Alamo. I am tired of words!” Republicans have done little to curtail the damaging executive orders flowing out of the White House or the run-away spending that 18 Republican Senators voted for in the Omnibus spending bill! When the campaign is on they are quick to mouth the words they think the people want to hear but when they are faced with the hard choice to stand, they cave in.

It is now revealed what many suspected before that the Covid Virus was leaked from a Chinese Lab in Wuhan, a story the media tried unsuccessfully to hide from the people. And why didn’t we find out about it from the CDC or the NIH? Instead, we found out about it through the Energy Dept.! Now we find out that our government is negotiating a deal to give WHO (the world health organization) authority over pandemic policies!  And WHO wants everybody in the world to get vaccinated even though the vaccine is proven not to work, and it is causing many bad side effects!

There is many more lies our present government is throwing at us but where can we go for the truth? Certainly not to the media or to our government. But there is a place God has ordained to give out truth – His Church! But that requires pastors that are “messengers of the Lord” as God told Malachi. God’s model pastor was Levi and God said of him,

“The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity and turned many away from iniquity.” – Mal. 2:6

But this is not just a pastor’s duty, it is also the duty of everyone claiming the name of Christian. We are to love the truth, seek it out, and then broadcast it to all around us. First, we must tell the truth of Jesus, but it is said about Jesus that the government shall be on his shoulders, in other words He cares about government as well as men’s souls! As Noah Webster said, it is the duty of citizens to place principled men in office for the public good.

Elijah and the Day of Judgement

George Washington praying

God is speaking to the nation of Israel and specifically to the religious of Israel and He refers to Levi –

“My covenant was with him, one of life and peace, And I gave them to him that he might fear Me; So, he feared Me And was reverent before My name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity and turned many away from iniquity. For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. But you have departed from the way; You have caused many to stumble at the law. You have corrupted the covenant of Levi, Says the LORD of hosts.” – Malachi 2:5-8

They were allowing injustice to go on without speaking out against it and they were not teaching the truth about wicked practices they saw in society. They had forgotten that they were messengers of the Lord to declare what He called good and what He called evil. God has not changed, and He feels the same way about America. God continues with His accusations –

“For Judah has profaned The LORD’s holy institution which He loves: He has married the daughter of a foreign god.” – Malachi 2:11

One-World-Religion-ChrislamGod is absolutely against His churches celebrating Chrislam, saying that Allah is as great as God. He is against sending your children to schools that teach humanism, which is a false religion, as well as communism and they force the children to partake in Islamic ceremonies. And they deny God’s sacred law, the 10 Commandments. In the face of such wickedness many of today’s pastors are silent. They are even denying God’s creation of man by saying there are more than two genders, that God didn’t just make them man and woman. They have denied what God spoke at Mt. Horeb –

“And teach them to your children and your grandchildren, especially concerning the day you stood before the LORD your God in Horeb, when the LORD said to me, ‘Gather the people to Me, and I will let them hear My words, that they may learn to fear Me all the days they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children.” – Deut. 4:9-10

burning dollarsAnd then the government demands that we pay taxes so these schools can continue teaching these lies and the pastors are silent about it. They could at least encourage homeschooling! God continues with His accusations –

“You have wearied the LORD with your words; Yet you say, “In what way have we wearied Him?” In that you say, “Everyone who does evil Is good in the sight of the LORD, And He delights in them,” Or, “Where is the God of justice?” – Malachi 2:17

How many Christians are Democrats and how many pastors are Democrats even though the Democrat party platform enshrines abortion and their whole party supports it! That’s calling evil good! The Democrat administration is shutting down our energy and forcing ‘green new deals’ on us even though they don’t work, and the loss of energy has led to rampant inflation and supply chain shortages. That’s calling evil good! These Democrat pastors shut down the revival in New York just because Mario Murillo said something good about President Trump. They choose Democrat ideology over God’s revival and that’s choosing evil over good!

Because of these things and more God pronounced judgement upon them and He will as well on us for doing the same things and more!

“And I will come near you for judgment; I will be a swift witness Against sorcerers, against adulterers, against perjurers, against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans, and against those who turn away an alien— Because they do not fear Me,” says the LORD of hosts. – Malachi 3:5

Asbury revivalOur churches are filled with those dabbling with witchcraft, especially the young, and those committing adultery (God calls divorce and remarriage adultery), and those who perjure (bear false witness), and many businessmen who exploit their wage earners, but there is seldom a message from the pulpit against such practices! As long as you are a giver and tithe, you are safe from these pastors! The alters of most churches should be full of those seeking repentance if the ‘law of truth and injustice’ was found in their pastors! Now we all have failed in some point, but God wants there to be the ‘fear of the Lord’ upon us that will drive us to the alter in repentance! God says –

“For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore, you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.” – Malachi 3:6

God wants us to know the He has not changed, He still expects holiness and righteousness from His people, but He also wants us to know that He stands ready to receive us back if we repent! And lest you think you are not Jewish, of Jacob, remember that every Gentile believer has been grafted into the root of Jacob,

God is always faithful to His covenants, and He made a covenant with the founders of this country therefore He warns us about the coming judgement –

“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch.” – Malachi 4:1

God is speaking of the final days. Did not Peter say while the earth would not be destroyed again by water, it is reserved to be destroyed by fire? But even in judgement God is merciful to those who trust in Him and He will send a way of protection –

“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Malachi 4:4-6

God sent John the Baptist in the spirit of Elijah to perform this task.

“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”- Luke 1:17

Cooley Family Day 2022He turned the hearts of the fathers to the children by reminding them of God’s 10 Commandments and he spoke out against the injustices of his day, calling the people to repentance. God has promised to send another, or others, in the spirit of Elijah to do the same before the final judgement falls. I long to see fathers taking their places, families restored, And I long to see Christians speaking out against the untruth and injustices in our nation but most of all I long to see repentance sweeping the nation. And it appears it may be starting.

Returning to our Covenant with God

At the risk of seeming ‘old fashioned’ I am going to claim a Scripture for this article –

God's Covenant with America For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.” – Psalm 125:3

The Pilgrims and the Puritans who came to this land made a covenant with God. The Pilgrims who first came to Jamestown said in their Virginia Compact,

“To propagate, to expand the gospel, the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to take the gospel to people who were ‘lying in darkness and had no knowledge of the one true God.’ They said that was the reason they had come,”

In 1607, the expedition led by Pastor Robert Hunt arrived in Virginia Beach. When they arrived in Virginia, the expedition dedicated our country to the glory of God. They planted a rough-hewn wooden cross, which they brought from England, in the sand and prayed:

We do hereby dedicate this Land, and ourselves, to reach the People within these shores with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to raise up Godly generations after us, and with these generations take the Kingdom of God to all the earth. May this Covenant of Dedication remain to all generations, as long as this earth remains, and may this Land, along with England, be Evangelist to the World. May all who see this Cross, remember what we have done here, and may those who come here to inhabit join us in this Covenant and in this most noble work that the Holy Scriptures may be fulfilled.

Our Founding Fathers: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and all the others who signed our Declaration of Independance added their names and voices to this covenant as they gave us our Constitution. But now we have drifted far from those declarations and our current President and ruling party seems intent on tearing down their words of wisdom.

parable-of-the-sower 2

Remember the unchangeable law of God – What you sow you shall reap! And God will not be bought! The nation of Israel was in captivity in Babylon because they forgot God and refused to follow His laws. But God hadn’t forgot them, and He spoke this word to them to prepare them for the return to Jerusalem.

“These are the things you shall do: Speak each man the truth to his neighbor; Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace; Let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor; And do not love a false oath. For all these are things that I hate,’ Says the LORD.” – Zech. 8:16-17

American Declaration of Independence with quill and parchment.

American Declaration of Independence with quill and parchment.

Notice that the first thing God required was ‘truth to your neighbor and don’t think ‘evil in your heart against your neighbor ‘. In the United States we are proud to say we are a government of the people and by the people but that demands truth between each other, and it demands good intensions toward one another. Neither of these appear to exist, except in rare occasions! There is an old saying, “You get the government you deserve!” and that certainly appears to be the case. God said, “Give judgement in your gates for truth, justice, and peace”. The phrase ‘your gates’ speaks of government. For the United States that speaks of the Congress and the Senate. There is little truth in either. Republicans or Democrats who rant and rave about inflation during election cycles and then vote for an Omnibus Spending bill that loads another $1.7 trillion dollars to our debt, which includes around $16 billion in pet projects known as “earmarks” by which Congressmen and Senators enrich themselves and their constituents at the cost of the rest of us!

Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) introduced an amendment earlier last year to ban earmarks, but House Republicans voted 52–158 against it. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who offered an amendment to the omnibus bill that would have erased more than 4,000 earmarks, called the Community Project Funding requests a “gateway drug to the massive deficit spending, to the mortgaging of our children’s futures.” “It has to stop,” he said. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), the GOP House leader, vehemently opposed the bill, calling its passage “one of the most shameful acts” he had ever seen in Congress, but many Republicans voted for the bill anyway!

These earmarks went from addressing “climate challenges” to agriculture and water quality in New York City to $459,000 for a solar panel installation at a YMCA in Nashua, New Hampshire and 4000 others! Of course, I’ll bet these government ‘watch dogs of the purse’ will say little of this back home! They even managed to give Ukraine $100 billion to increase its war efforts instead of encouraging it to go to the peace table with Russia. I wonder how Americans would react to Russia installing nuclear missiles in Mexico. And yet the Democrats, who launder millions from a corrupt Ukraine, wonder why Russia is upset at NATO installing nuclear missiles on their border! This says nothing about the 23 bio-chemical labs the U.S. has installed in Ukraine. WHERE IS THE TRUTH AND JUSTICE IN THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT? The globalists, the corrupt Democrats, and the ‘war hawk‘Republicans all want war because they will make millions from it and achieve their interests to install a world-wide government after they pick up the pieces of what is left after World War III.

As our corrupt government yells for war in Ukraine, it would be wise if they would remember what God demands of a government, Judgement, Truth, Justice, and Peace! And to remember that God never loses!

WH sells oil from strategic reserve Now we have the news that the Biden Administration is going to sell another 26 million barrels of oil from our Strategic Reserves after last year’s sale of 180 billion barrels!

Pardon me for an observation – doesn’t it appear this government is purposely spending us into oblivion?

The Bible states – “And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” – Deut. 8:18

I think we had better return to our covenant with God so the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land.


The Shinning of the Remnant

seals and virgoI recently received a message from a member expressing her dismay at the present state of affairs in the United States and I again thought about the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 prophesy concerning the constellation Virgo. It clearly reveals that we are heading towards the tribulation. I think it places us somewhere between the 4th and 6th Seals of Revelation. So, what is this saying to us? I believe the Rev. 12 fulfillment of Virgo also has the answer for us.

Gemini 2In 2017 the Revelation sign of Virgo was fulfilled as Jupiter came forth from its retrograde motion in Virgo to represent the birth of the “man-child” that was to be caught up to God and His throne. I don’t think the ‘man-child’ represents Jesus Christ but, someone who is like Christ.

This someone else is portrayed in another constellation as well, the constellation Gemini, or the Twins. The larger twin on the left has a principal star named Pollux which means ‘the ruler’ or ‘the Judge’ or ‘the Toiling Deliverer’. The smaller twin on the right has a principal star named Castor which means ‘the Coming Ruler or Judge’. This constellation represents Christ and His Bride who is ‘to rule and reign’ with Christ. It is the promise of Jesus to those who overcome. –

“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” – Rev. 3:21

“And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’—as I also have received from My Father;” – Rev. 2:26, 27

We, the Church, are the ‘coming ruler’ because the marriage of the Lamb has not yet come (Rev. 19:7), we are near but, first we have to overcome. What do we have to overcome?

The letters to the seven churches in Revelation give us a clue. We are to return to our ‘first love’. One Church was not putting Jesus first in all things. Another Church had to face persecution and tribulation and they were warned “to be faithful until death”. Yet another Church was allowing the doctrine of Balaam in their midst. Remember, Balaam encouraged the Israelites to worship foreign gods and commit sexual immorality with foreigners. They also had those who were holding to the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which some say women pastorswas teaching immoral sex was OK, like some ministers today are doing. But, years ago I asked the Lord what this doctrine was, and this is what the Holy Spirit showed me – Nicolaitan is a compound word made up of two words – ‘Nico’ which means ‘to get the power’ and ‘Laity’ which means ‘the people’. I believe it was a separation between the Clergy and the Laity which kept the people in the dark as to their function in the Body of Christ for centuries and still does.

Another Church was having trouble with Jezebel, a woman who wanted to preach and teach, which thing the Bible is against. Much of today’s Church is allowing women to be pastors but, the word of God does not allow it – suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. (1 Tim. 2:12)). This does not mean a woman cannot be used in the gifts of the Holy Spirit but is restricting her from standing up front as a Pastor and exercise authority over men. You may not like it but it is the Word of God!

Another Church had become lukewarm, caught up in the things of the world. Jesus sent this letter as the head of the Church, and it is what He expects of His body.

Another thing we have to overcome is our own flesh. Paul writes about this in Galatians –

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envying’s, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. . . . And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” – Gal. 5:19-21

Who among us has not struggled with some of these weaknesses? But the Twin who is seated with Christ in Gemini has overcome them plus the Antichrist –

“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” – Rev. 12:10-11

Now we know that the present Church is full of wheat and full of tares because Jesus said the tares would be there right to the end.

“Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” – Matt. 13:30

I believe the ‘man-child’ that Virgo gave birth to on September 23, 2017, represents the remnant out of the wheat that is being caught up to God in the spirit to receive their instructions to return and stir up the wheat to make ready for the Great Harvest that is coming. The prophet Malachi said the prophet Elijah would come before the Day of the Lord but perhaps there will be many Elijah’s coming to restore the Family of God, turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers. Besides preaching against sin they will no doubt press the truth that we are seated with Christ in the heavenlies far above all principalities and powers –

“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that fills all in all. . . . But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” – Eph. 1:19-2:6

The call is to take up the Cross, die to self, and follow Jesus Christ. The smaller Twin of Gemini, the Bride of Christ, is holding a harp in one hand and a bow and arrow in the other. This harp represents her victory and her praise to the Lord. The bow and arrow represent her warfare with the devil in prayer which are the arrows.

“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.” – Rev. 15:2-4

That is the high call of God to all of us. Somewhere between the fourth and sixth seals Gemini will be fulfilled. I hope to see you there.

Elijah is Returning

then and now

This blog is dedicated to the prophetic words of the Bible and God’s servants, the prophets, both ancient and modern. And there is one prophetic word that has always been dear to me, it is the prophesy about the coming of Elijah before the coming of the Lord.

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:5, 6

A key part of his ministry will be to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers. I remember so well the advice a dear minister friend of mine gave me years ago concerning this. I was a teacher, both secular and of the word of God and my family and I had attended a Family Ministry named Zion Harbor. I was so impressed that I was ready to quit my job, sell my house, and join the ministry. Rev. Bill Lemke was a head preacher there at that time so, I went to him with my offer. After prayer, he told me to stay home and take care of my family; my wife and I had eight children. God later told me that if I raised my family to love Him, I would have done more than 80% of the missionaries of all time. I obeyed and I have been so glad for Bill’s advice and for the word of the Lord gave to me. After I retired from teaching in collage, I did go on to become a minister of the Gospel and was ordained by Rev. Bill Lemke.

When I think of all the great ministries Elijah could have in preparing the people for the coming of the Lord – how amazing that it is to heal families and make them strong in the Lord. After all, Elijah called down fire from heaven. he could be like so many of today’s ministers that broadcast the miracles God does in their ministries to draw great crowds!  Then I remembered how God moved in the Old Testament – through families! He called Abraham and made him a family.

“For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice, that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”– Gen. 18:19

The same with Isaac. The same with Jacob and from his eight children God made a nation. He promised Abraham –

“And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;” – Gen. 26:4

And it was so – Jacob became Israel and out of the nation of Israel, Jesus was born and became a blessing to all nations.

How wonderful is a family. It was to the family of Zacharias and Elisabeth that John the Baptist was born, and Scriptures say of him –

“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” – Luke 1:17

We need more men to go before the Lord in the spirit and power of Elijah. The enemy has tried to destroy the family by stealing from men their heritage, a heritage of preparing their children to meet the Lord. The politicians have been his tools by doling out welfare and government assistance to replace the father. The bars and drug lords have also done their part to blind the men to their true calling with alcoholism and addiction. Hollywood also has done its part by glorifying immoral sex and adultery. And yes, the churches also have done their part by failing to teach men their responsibilities and condoning divorce.

“But did He not make them one, Having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore, take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.” – Malachi 2:15

God gives to a marriage the “remnant of the Spirit” to be able to produce new life! God has called you men to be the carriers of seed (sperm) and you women to produce the egg from which He can bring forth new life. And you will never know greater fulfillment in life than to care for your children, teaching them the ways of the Lord. You also will never know more of the joy of the Lord than when you see your children walking with the Lord and arguing with their enemies (those who are following Satan) in the gates of the Lord.

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed but shall speak with their enemies in the gate.” – Ps. 127:3-5

As I witness the abundant signs of the Lord’s return, both heavenly and earthly, I long to see the Elijahs of the day come forth; to see the love and care only a father can give to his family and to see the honor and respect of the children for their fathers, honor and respect which only comes from love that has been experienced. As I witness the damage feminism and the spirit of Jezebel has wreaked on women that they will never know the joys of motherhood or the lies the devil feeds to men who dominate them instead of loving them as Jesus loved His Church, I long for the spirit of Elijah to come and restore God’s intent for the marriage and the family once again.

If you are a father reading this, God bless you in your God-given ministry to your family. If you are a mother reading this God bless you in your ministry of nurturing and raising your family for the Lord. One day He will greatly reward you for your labor of love.

“They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” Then you shall again discern Between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God And one who does not serve Him.” – Malachi 3:17-18

Education for Christians

This article will be about American education.

CA wildfireImagine being caught in a California brush fire with no place to go. That is what the coming of the Lord is going to be like. The prophet Malachi describes the coming of the Lord in just such a way –

“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch.” – Malachi 4:1

Fortunately, there will be a way of escape –

“But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” says the LORD of hosts. And grow fat like stall-fed calves.” – Malachi 4:2-3

So God does have a way of protecting His chosen from the raging fire that is coming. To those who fear My name is the qualifier! Unfortunately, that does not include those lukewarm Christians who confess the Lord’s Name on Sunday but live like the world the rest of the week. There will be a separation between those who say they are Christians and those who really are living like they are Christians. God has placed a constellation in the heavens as a witness to this time – it is called the Constellation Auriga, which is the Third Deacon (one that accompanies and further explains) of the constellation Taurus.

Auriga constellationAuriga is seen as a mighty Shepherd holding a she-goat in his arm and cradling two baby sheep in his lap. The goat in his arm is grasping his neck and looking back at the constellation Taurus, which represents the Lord coming as Judge back to the earth. God declares that the truth will be confirmed by two witnesses and here we have the witness in the heavens and the witness of His word –

“Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him. He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.” – Isa. 40:10-11

Now back to the prophet Malachi. After his declaration that the Lord will rescue those who fear His name, Malachi states –

“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.” – Mal. 4:4

Mt. Horeb was where God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. God then stated –

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:5-6

This is why every Passover always leaves a seat open for Elijah and one of the young children goes to the door and looks outside to see if Elijah is coming. And what will Elijah do when he comes? He will restore the function of the fathers to their children and the children back to the truth the fathers teach them. That speaks of education! The fathers will begin to do what God commanded them from Mt. Horeb –

“Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren, especially concerning the day you stood before the LORD your God in Horeb, when the LORD said to me, ‘Gather the people to Me, and I will let them hear My words, that they may learn to fear Me all the days they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children.’ – Deut. 4:9-10

As the United States was founded, it took these truths to heart and our leaders believed and practiced them. In the words of our third President, Thomas Jefferson –

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever…” – Thomas Jeferson, 3rd. U.S. President and signer of the Constitution.

The truths written in the Word of God, the Holy Bible, are the only map to our success as a country. But we need to take back our education system and our government which have surrendered to the lies of socialism and communism. And the American Church needs to wake up and begin telling the truth. God told Malachi what kind of Pastor He wants, one like Levi –

“Then you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, That My covenant with Levi may continue,” says the LORD of hosts. My covenant was with him, one of life and peace, And I gave them to him that he might fear Me; So, he feared Me And was reverent before My name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity and turned many away from iniquity. For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.” – Malachi 2:4-7

Pastors need to stop thinking of themselves as ministers of some denomination or even ministers of the people. They are messengers only of the LORD! And they are beholden to HIm to tell the truth, that’s Scriptural truth, social truth, and governmental truth! Many today are speaking about revival, and we do need a revival of the truth! And among the areas of truth, perhaps the most important area of truth, at least according to Malachi, is in education.

According to Epoch Times article Behind the Public School Exodus of 1.4 million Children now is certainly the time for the Church to promote Home Schooling by small groups and home school groups and teaching about parental responsibility to teach their children the ways of the Lord. And I am not talking about just one-hour Sunday School classes but complete help on the curriculum and teaching methods available. We are in the last days and we are in trouble! Now is the time to take back who we are as Christian Americans as the following video shows.

Some may think this article is too ‘political’ but I would say God is political and Jesus will have the “government upon His shoulders”! We are to be the salt of this society and that implies telling the truth to it and to our children. Our public education system has been captured by a foreign god, the god of humanism and communism and those Christians who are still sending their children into it are sacrificing them to foreign gods! And the church that allows this without speaking up is just like the Pharisaical system of Jesus’ day – they refuse to receive the truth and they stand in the doorway blocking it from their perishers.

Now that I have vented my frustration, I want to finish this article with a video about an educational topic all Christians should become familiar with – the Constellations.

I hope every Christian parent begins teaching their children at home the truths God has left for us to learn, and that includes truth in the heavens and truth in the Word of God, the Bible.

Education that does not Honor God

critical race theoryThe end times prophet Malachi has a word for Israel that can very well be applied to the United States. It has to do with the nation’s education system.

“Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god. The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts.” – Malachi 2:11-12 KJV

By teaching concepts of a “strange god” they were dishonoring the holiness of the true God Yahweh. For this reason, God will cut off both teacher and student from “the tabernacles of Jacob”. In other words, they will lose the blessings of God that came only to those having covenant with God.

God had instructed them at Mt. Horeb to remember His word –

And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.: Deut. 11:19 KJV

“Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.” – Deut. 4:10 KJV

But, over time, they forgot this instruction and had fallen into the condition Jeremiah the prophet accused them of –

“For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.” – Jer. 2:13

Jesus also spoke of these “living waters” on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles –

“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, ‘If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water’. (But this Spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” – John 7:37-39

Scripture says there is a pure river of life that flows from the throne of God and the Lamb –

“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” – Rev. 22:1-2

That river is the pure Word of God and His word is life to all mankind. It is also for the healing of the nations and by His Word the creation was performed, “Then God said . . .”. The Apostle Paul tells us how Jesus is going to purify His Bride, the Church –

“That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” – Eph. 5:26-27

America’s education system began with the Word of God. As is written in The Founding from the American Heritage Education Foundation –

“After the Revolutionary War, when the United States acquired new western territory, the Confederation Congress was concerned about immorality and corruption in the new territories and stressed the importance of teaching the Bible, morality, and religion in these regions.  They thus enacted a law that encouraged education for the teaching of religion and morality in schools, known as the Northwest Ordinance of 1787.  This ordinance required all new states to build schools.  Article III of the ordinance stated:

Religion, morality and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.

The Confederation Congress adopted the Northwest Ordinance during the same period that the U. S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and First Amendment were drafted and adopted.  (The ordinance was reapproved in 1789 by the first U. S. Congress under President George Washington.)  Since Congress adopted both this ordinance and the First Amendment, they did not view government encouragement of moral education as a violation of the First Amendment’s No Establishment Clause.  The No Establishment Clause permitted the national government’s encouragement of the teaching of religion and morality in schools.  Indeed, early Americans naturally identified education with the teaching of the Bible and morals, observes A. James Reichley in his Religion in American Public Life, “almost as a matter of course.”

American education began well, being founded on the firm foundation of the Word of God and as a result, God blessed this nation. But now it has fallen into the trap Israel fell into, it has “profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god”. 

chuck schumerAnd what is that god? It is the god of humanism! Humanism is an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems. In other words, humanism denies God’s value and existence. And it negates His Word as being important in human affairs. It gave rise to the concept of evolution which denies God in the Creation and thus denies the Book of Genisis and denies the concept of sin and thus denies the importance or need of a Savior. It basically substitutes man for God! After the rise of humanism, it was not long before they outlawed the Ten Commandments from education, next came the removal of references to Bible names and concepts, such as Jesus and Easter and Christmas. Instead, education has substituted Critical Race Theory, trans genderism, and homosexuality.

American education used to be tops in the world but now it has fallen to be in the category of third world nations! What Paul wrote to the Romans has come upon us –

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man – “ – Rom. 1:18-23

Because of this God gave them up to their foolishness.

“For this reason, God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise, also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;” – Rom 1:26-28

Alexandria_Ocasio_Cortez_wild_eyesWhy is education so important, you may ask? It is because we tend to elect our leaders from the education pool. Look what our educational system has recently produced: Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Alexandrea Cortes, Charles Schumer, Mitch McConnell, Elisabeth Warren, Bernard Sanders, and a whole host of unsavory, unbelieving hypocrites! And the colleges that produced them also produced the educators that are running our schools. Is it any wonder why God is rejecting us?

I retired from education 25 years ago. I taught Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics on the college level and even then, I could see the corrosion that was setting in but, it has gotten much worse now. My wife, who also was a teacher, and I home schooled our last two children because of what we saw firsthand in the schools. I would strongly advise parents today to home school or get their children into a Christian based school. There are now excellent home school materials available as well as groups to help you. And I would advise every church that believes in the Word of God to do whatever they can to help and encourage home school groups.

Charles CooleyFinally, at 86 years old I cannot fight the battle that needs to be fought to reclaim our educational system, but I can encourage you who are listening what to do. You must pray that God renews your church because God has given the church to be the light and salt of this world. Next, you can elect those leaders who really are Christian, who have a track record of honoring Christ and His Word. Understanding God’s Word is more important than understanding government because the Holy Spirit can teach us the way we should go in any situation and God is an expert at government. As our founding fathers knew –

Religion, morality and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.

Finally get your children into a school atmosphere that honors God and honors His Word!
