The Sin of Abortion

How does God look upon children, even those yet in the womb? Well, to begin, Jesus, the Son of God said –

“But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matt. 19:14

“It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” – Luke 17:2

I guess that is pretty definitive, even the Kingdom of Heaven welcomes them! And even the Psalmist agrees with Jesus for he wrote about the sin of Israel –

“And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood.” – Ps. 106:38

Do you think aborting a baby is not offending them? And if Abel’s blood cried out from the ground when he was murdered, do you not think their blood also cries out to God?  I tell you they are crying out “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” David wrote about the baby in his mother’s womb –

“My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book, they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” – Psalm 139:15-16

Even science now agrees with the Bible that life begins at conception so, all anyone supporting abortion can say is it is just their selfish, wicked choice that will support abortion! Or perhaps their greedy desire for money that the abortion industry rakes in, or political gain like Senator Tammy Baldwin, from Wisconsin, gets from a bill she introduced named Women’s Protective Health Act. She said this bill will protect women’s freedom to make their own personal health decisions. What she didn’t say is women do not have the right to take another person’s life! But then she doesn’t believe that baby in the womb is a person. She is just like Hitler who didn’t believe Jews were persons either. She certainly doesn’t believe the Bible so, I want to ask Christians in Wisconsin, are you going to vote for such a person? If you do, you just as guilty as she is before God and will have to answer for that choice one day.

And while I’m at it, we have a Wisconsin Supreme Court election coming up in a few days and there is a clear choice concerning abortion between Judge Janet who supports abortion and lets criminal walk free and Justice Daniel Kelly who is against abortion and a staunch supporter of Constitutional rights. so, I want to ask Christians in Wisconsin, who are you going to vote for.?

Christians don’t have the right to vote in many parts of the world but, in America we do. But if you don’t start voting according to what the Word of God has to say, you may soon lose the right to vote! Freedom is not free! Jesus paid a high price for it and many American ancestors also paid a high price for it. Jesus alone could pay for our sins because He was sinless, but many others have stood up for good against evil and paid a high price for the good. So Christian, don’t let them down, don’t let yourself down by voting with the world. Remember, James wrote – “Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”

Unless the Lord builds the House (2)

Psalm 127 has one of the wisest sayings in the Bible:

“Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.”

People and nations throughout history have discovered the power behind these words – some to their benefit and some to their disaster. Today I want to share about them from a personal family level. 60 years ago, I realized the truth of this passage as I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. For the last 60 years I have been growing in my understanding of its truth and I have only just begun to plumb its depths. The Psalm goes on to reveal the way in which God builds the house spoken of here.

“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.”

Children! Children raised with love and the fear and admonition of the Lord. I have learned that children have at least two powerful functions in your life: 1) They are the motivation that brings forth care, patience, and unqualified love like nothing else in life, and 2) they are also the mirror God uses most (after your wife of course) to show you who you are. In them you can truly see yourself. As they grow into adulthood they also drive you to depend on God more than most things because they soon make it clear that you can no longer directly control their every step. You are forced to seek God in prayer on their behalf and hope beyond hope that you prepared them to meet life.

On November 21, 2015, before Thanksgiving, at 1:30 am on a cold Sunday morning our house burned. What didn’t burn was ruined by smoke and the abundant water the fire fighters needed to put out the fire. As I stood outside watching the flames and smoke, there were my children and grandchildren forming a line to carry valuables and mementos handed through a bedroom window by firefighters and police who were there to save as much as possible. My children shouldered the burden of providing food and clothing for us (all was lost), meeting with insurance agents, itemizing things lost, and the abundance of details you never think of that need to be done after such an event. It is surely true “They shall not be ashamed but shall speak with their enemies in the gate.” Not that the insurance agents are our enemies, but the fire and Satan certainly was!

Children are a piece of you, and they are also a piece of God because He gives every one of them a spirit that comes directly from Himself. You might say, they are the down payment on the future. When the prophet Malachi laments about the ugly practice of divorce declaring that God “hates divorce”, he reveals the divine reason for marriage:

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

Children truly are a heritage from the Lord! They are the greatest opportunity God ever gives to man; his hardest challenge and his greatest reward all rolled into one. Jesus commanded –

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” – Matt. 28:18

and your children are certainly the very first persons to obey this command on!

Now if God has ordained that you should not have children, then trust in Him, because He has a plan for your life as well, and His plan is always good. To the young couple perhaps having their first child, rejoice in the Lord for He is giving you a chance to shape the future and only He knows of the plans He has for that precious life. So, depend on Him for the help you will need in raising them. To the Grandparent, your job is not yet done. To you is given the all-powerful ministry of encouragement and prayer for God’s plans and purposes for your Grandchildren to not be hindered in any way. Parents and Grandparents are given the all-important job of standing beside God and helping Him in performing His purpose for those children.

georgenov022017 But this word is not just to families, it is also to nations because nations are built on the family. In a nation such as the United States it is important that the elected officials understand that they are building God’s House.! Our first President, George Washington, is quoted as saying, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert great pillars of human happiness.” By religion he meant Christianity and its tenants.

In its history, America has had several revivals of that sentiment in which it turned back to God and His words. But that is not the current case as the entertainment industry, epitomized by Hollywood, has become the Antichrist’s immorality voice of the world. And our current government encourages them by eliminating God from public view. Democrats have dropped the phrase So help me God’ from the testimony sworn by witnesses before Congressional hearings, Democrat Jerry Nadler remarking “God’s Will is No Concern of This Congress”, to passing the Equality Bill which elevates homosexuals and Lesbians and transgenderism to protected status.

There is much more I could point out that shows the spirit of Antichrist taking over our government but the responsibility rests with the Church, who alone has the Light and is called to be the salt that preserves. Jesus predicted there would be famines in the last days, and so there are, but the worst famine is a famine of the word of God! The prophet Amos predicted this in the last days –

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD.” – Amos 8:11

What is the answer? How can we change this condition? The prophet Hosea has the answer –

“Come and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight. Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.” – Hosea 67:1-3

And above all, make sure God is building your house.

The Law of the LORD

John Winthrop Model of Christian CharityLast Sunday in church we were singing the song “Be Exalted” and during the worship that followed I received a prophesy, the first line of which was –

“To exalt My name above the heavens – Obey My Law!
to declare your love for My Son Jesus – keep His commands!”

We often declare our love and devotion to God or His Son in praise during worship but what happens after we leave the church? What does God recognize as true devotion in our lives? The answer is what God sees in our everyday life, in our actions and in our words. His requirement of us is written in Deuteronomy –

“And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,” – Deut. 10:12

The prophet Malachi as he was predicting the end of days and the coming of the Lord had this word of encouragement –

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.” – Mal. 4:4-6

When Jesus came the first time, John the Baptist first came and prepared the way before him. When John was about to be born, an angel was sent to John’s father Zacharias to explain his ministry –

“For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, 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 1:15-17

The ‘wisdom of the just that prepares the people for the Lord’ is the Law given to Moses. The Law which God gave Moses of course was the Ten Commandments which speak of righteousness, sin, and judgement and what God expects from His people. He knew many would forsake the Ten Commandments as a moral code. Scripture said they would be “committing adultery, stealing, lying, and killing and because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”10-commandments – (Hosea 4:2 and Matthew 24:12). The phrase lawlessness means ‘without law’ and refers to the Ten Commandments, which are God’s laws for human relationships. They are also the definition of true love because God is love! A whole paper could be written on this alone; social, religious, governmental lawlessness. In 1980 the Supreme Court ruled that the 10 Commandments could not be displayed in schools, and it has been a downward slide ever since!

It is time for Christians to renew their knowledge of the Ten Commandments and how they apply to our daily life. If we want God’s blessings on our country, we need to return to God’s Law.

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me: that includes humanism which exalts the wisdom of man over that of God (almost all modern education is based on humanism), Satanism which includes practicing the occult such as witchcraft or fortune telling or Ouija Boards, love of money which includes playing the stock market or gambling, hedonisms (pleasure or happiness is the highest good).
  2. You shall make no idols: of things in the heavens, or on the earth, or under the earth, or in the water: This includes witchcraft, free masonry, excessive following of sports or excessive gaming, anything you give more time to than God can become an idol.
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain: call yourself Christian then act like the world. You cannot separate your Christianity from your work or your politics or your social activities.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy: remember the Lord Jesus became the sabbath rest for us so do His work always and not your own. Remember, the Lord knew you and ordained you from the womb: (Psalm 139:16) and that you are “His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that you should walk in them” (Eph. 2:10). Remember the Lord created heaven and earth in six days and not as the evolutionist teach.
  5. Honor your father and mother that your days may be long on the earth: listen to their wisdom and obey their commands.
  6. You shall not murder. This means you shall embrace the sanctity of life both before birth and after birth – this includes abortion.
  7. You shall not commit adultery: don’t defile the marriage vows you make, and don’t commit spiritual adultery which is turning to the world after you have committed to the Lord.
  8. You shall not steal: this means take from another what is rightfully his, it also includes fraud and insider trading and it also includes undue taxation and spending the proceeds without the permission of the taxed.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor: this also includes fake news and lies to gain political favor such as using falsehoods or half-truths to malign your neighbor in political advertisements.
  10. You shall not covet anything that is your neighbors: that leads to political avarice and socialism. Our entire government system has become infected with covetness, especially with liberal progressives and Democrats.

Jesus summed all these commandments up as loving and obeying God and loving our neighbors as ourselves. If we instruct and train our children in these truths, we will have the blessings of the Lord. To keep these commands before us and to be quick to repent if we fail to keep them is the pathway to blessing and protection from the ensnarement’s of the devil.

The Way to Victory

The Book of Revelation describes the tumultuous times of the end when a great ‘beast’, called the Antichrist, rules on the earth. John also describes a second beast that arises during the same time –

“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” – Rev. 13:11

This beast tries to imitate the ‘son of God’, looking like a lamb but, he only has two horns whereas the true Lamb of God has seven horns which are the seven Spirits of God (Rev. 5:6). Later in Revelation John calls this beast by his name ‘the false prophet’ (Rev. 19:20). The first beast comes out of the waters, which represent the Gentile nations (Rev. 17:15), and the second beast comes out of the land, which represents the land of Israel.

This false prophet does signs –

“And he deceives those (text reads my own people) who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. ” – Rev. 13:14-15

This sounds like science fiction doesn’t it, making a life-sized image that breaths and talks and judges? Until you realize we already have AI (artificial intelligence) technology to do just that! Microsoft Corporation has patented a technology that does this.

“The corporation Microsoft has developed and patented a technology that will allow the creation of chat bots based on information about people and their biological parameters. Microsoft has created technology that is designed to dramatically improve existing voice chatbots that interact with users. To do this, the system must collect photographs of people, recordings of their voices, messages on social networks, and emails. With the help of artificial intelligence, all this data will be processed and, as a result, the algorithm will be able to quite reliably imitate a person’s communication style in social networks and build speech models that completely copy it. The system can be used, among other things, to create voice chat bots that completely copy the communication style of deceased people – thus creating their virtual clone, with which you can communicate by correspondence and even talk.”

Here is an example. A South Korean woman, Chang Ji-sung, talks to her daughter Nyon who died four years ago. To give her the opportunity to “see” her daughter again, the programmers of the TV show for eight months created a digital model of the girl and transferred it to virtual reality, as well as recreated the child’s voice. After that, a model of the park was created, in which mother and daughter often walked, and then, Chang Ji-Sun and Nyon were temporarily “reunited”. The mother could even touch her daughter.

The technology will only improve from here and perhaps already has!

Yuval Noah Harari: The WEF False ProphetDoes the false prophet of Revelation already exist? Some think he does, and his name is Dr Yuval Noah Harari.

He is Jewish and believes humans invented God and will become God. He believes AI implanted in humans will make them gods.

final kingdomdan2-timeidolThe Book of Revelation properly understood is showing us just how close we are to the final days it talks about.

The prophet Daniel was given dreams and visions which show the same truths. The dream God gave to Nebuchadnezzar which Daniel interpreted showed all the final kingdoms to come on the earth; Babylon (gold), Medo-Persia (silver), Greece (bronze), Rome (Iron), and the 10 kingdoms from which the final kingdom develops (Iron mixed with clay), which many believe to be the EU.

Daniel later had a dream of the same kingdoms which showed how God saw these kingdoms. He saw them as the Lion, the Bear, the Leopard, and the terrible beast having 10 horns and a little horn coming up in the midst of them (Dan. 7:2-7). These are the same

Daniels beast

Beast out of the Sea

kingdoms shown in the first beast that John saw coming out of the sea that looked like a leopard with the feet of the bear and a mouth like a lion having 7 heads and 10 horns. This first beast will have elements of all the empires Daniel saw out of which comes the little horn that will be the Antichrist, for example law, education, and governmental structure. We know this beast will come out of territory the old Roman Empire ruled because the little horn that arises out of it is known as the “prince that will come” that Daniel describes in his vision of the 70-week record of Israel, and we know that Rome was the empire that destroyed the Temple in 70 AD.

“And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined.” – Dan. 9:26

This war talked about by Daniel is the war in the heavens between Satan and God. It is a war for the heart and mind of mankind, God’s highest creation made in the likeness and image of God. Satan’s chief weapon in this war is the guilt of man over his fall from grace but Jesus robbed Satan of this weapon on the cross and forever set man free if he would but recognize it. Since the cross, the war has been one of deception and lies where Satan tries to convince mankind his way is better than God’s way. But the end of that war is about to happen.

“And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So, the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” – Rev. 12:7-12

Satan and his spirit of lawlessness is still trying to deceive man but our way to victory has been given. All we have to do is choose to repent of our sin and to follow Jesus. If you follow my blog articles, the way to victory will become clear to you.

War in the Heavens, coming to Earth!

web pictures 146We are witnessing war in the heavens right now. Scripture says the nations and the kings of the earth (great leaders) plot and take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed saying Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords (that bind) from us”. From the time God said, “Let us make man in Our image”, Satan has been at war with mankind because he is at war with God. As we approach the end of time, Satan is moving with great vengeance against any in mankind that honor and cling to God. The last great nation on his list is the United States. It was founded in prayer and by those seeking God on earth, the Pilgrims and the Puritans. And through its history, although there have been ups and downs, it has stood for God and His Biblical principles. When Elijah complained to God that he was the last prophet remaining alive, God replied, “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”  so there have always been a remnant in America that remained true to God. Their confession has echoed that of King David –

“The LORD is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works. The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. The LORD preserves all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy.” – Psalm 145:17-20

the purgeIt would be good for all of us to listen to these words more closely: ‘The LORD is near to all . . . who call upon Him in truth.’ Paul wrote that the coming of the Lawless one would be with “lying wonders” and we are certainly witnessing the work of the lawless one among us. Everything the current Whitehouse utters to the public is a lie. There is no truth in most government organizations such as the FBI and the DOJ, whose leadership is filled with wicked people. Most of our colleges have given way to the lies of the LGBTQIA+ crowd and now even the public education schools are teaching the lies of CRT (Critical Race Theory). And there is certainly no truth in most of our so-called news media which has become nothing more than a propaganda machine for the ‘lawless one’. Social media has been taken over by those espousing doctrines of the ‘lawless one’.

One-World-Religion-ChrislamBut what is far worse is the succumbing of the American Church to these same lies. The Church was intended to proclaim God’s truth to the nations but all too often today’s churches are proclaiming a message crafted to attract people of the world and leave them in the condition in which they were found! Many churches today propagate the false teaching of evolution, or they put up with it by their silence. Many have embraced the homosexual lifestyle, and some have even appointed homosexual preachers and bishops to stand in the pulpit. Many have appointed women to be pastors when the word of God strictly forbids it. I recently listened to a Black Pastor from New York who was expelled from the American Baptist Church for saying the Barrack Obama was not a black man (because he has a white mother) and for saying that the homosexual lifestyle is unbiblical! Some churches are even proclaiming Jesus is not the only way to God! It is called the doctrine of Chrislam. Muslims and Jews are said to have their own way to God.

The last book of the Old Testament which speaks about the end times, explains what the priesthood (pastors) should be modeled after and that is Levi of the Old Testament. God says of Levi that “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.” The law of truth was in his mouth means he didn’t speak lies and he proclaimed God’s truth to his people and to the nation. He wasn’t after pleasing the people, white washing their sins but he proclaimed God’s truth! God says a pastor is “the messenger of the LORD of hosts!” He is not a hireling of the people, or his denominational headquarters! And injustice was not found on his lips means that a pastor is to speak against every injustice he sees and do it from the pulpit. That means every pastor in today’s churches ought to be speaking against the Democrat Party for their stand on abortion, Critical Race Theory, LGBTQIA+ lifestyle, and many in the Republican Party as well!

The Psalmist also wrote that God would fulfill the desire of those who fear Him. The fear of the Lord is not a subject talked about much in the modern church but, the Leader of our faith had much to say about it.

“And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!” – Luke 12:4-5

The Apostle’s Doctrine, in which all the early church was instructed also says much about the fear of the Lord. Peter wrote –

“And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” – 1 Peter 1:17-19

Jesus warned us about hell and Peter warns us that we will all face judgement and our works will be examined! This knowledge should cause all of us the join King David in praying –

“Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, for in You do I trust. Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You. . .. Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God, Your Spirit if good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.” – Psalm 143:8-10

This is the fear of the Lord. As God spoke to Elijah, I pray there will be a remnant in the United States that will rise up and take their position in the Army of God because the war is already upon us. Will you go down to the waters of Gideon and be part of the 300 of the Lord?

God’s Final Message in Malachi

BRM in Taurus Nov 18 2021In these last days I believe God is especially speaking to His people in two ways: the Book of Malachi and the constellations, especially Taurus and its Deacons. It is significant that a Blood Red Moon was seen in the constellation Taurus Nov. 18, 2021, as signaling us to get ready for God’s move.

The Book of Malachi begins with God’s accusation on the people for not honoring Him as God –

“A son honors his father, And a servant his master. If then I am the Father, Where is My honor? And if I am a Master, Where is My reverence? Says the LORD of hosts . . .” – Mal. 1:6

God then proceeds to accusing the priests (pastors) –

“And now, O priests, this commandment is for you. If you will not hear, and if you will not take it to heart, to give glory to My name,” says the LORD of hosts, “I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not take it to heart. . . . Then you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, That My covenant with Levi may continue, says the LORD of hosts.” – Mal. 2:1-4

Drag_queen_story_timeAmerica was founded by God fearing Christians, both Pilgrims and Puritans and they made a Covenant with God to proclaim Jesus as the Christ and the only way to heaven. And God honored that covenant with His blessings until America has become the most prosperous of nations. Now we have become an apostate nation under the influence of liberals, progressives, and communists and other anti-patriots. We have taken down the Ten Commandments from our public places, removed prayer from our schools, and celebrated immorality in our entertainment and in our government as it has encoded laws protecting LGBT gay rights and other anti-Christian stands. 

make abortion great againGod brought the first woman to man and told them to be fruitful with godly offspring, but we have killed millions by abortion, thus robbing God and ourselves of His blessings. And God gave us pastors to warn against these things and tell us the truth but they have forsaken the Levitical Covenant God made with pastors. What is that you say, well I’ll say it as God Himself says it –

“My covenant was with him (Levi), 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.” – Mal. 2:5-7

gay bishop

Gay Bishop Ordained Episcopalian

Pastors were never meant to be the employees of some Denomination or any congregation of people. They are to be called by and for God as His messengers! But we have made them subjects of denominations, denominations who no longer believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus or in His resurrection or in the infallibility of the Scriptures! Whole denominations now deny the basic tenants of Christianity and swallow the lies of evolution, thus denying the creation, the fall to sin, and the coming of the Savior – Jesus Christ.

A 1963 survey of church members shows that only 34% of United Methodists believe that “Jesus was born of a virgin” and is “completely true.”

God continues declaring how He is against the destruction of the family saying, “For the LORD God of Israel says that He hates divorce”, and not dispensing justice by saying “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the LORD and He delights in him.” They call the proud blessed, for those who do wickedness are raised up. They even tempt God and go free. Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann was acquitted Tuesday of lying to the FBI (When he himself admitted his guilt), in the first trial of special counsel John Durham’s investigation. The verdict is a major defeat for Durham and his Justice Department prosecutors, who have spent three years looking for wrongdoing in the Trump-Russia probe. I question Durham’s commitment as well. He should have known better than to try Sussmann in Wahington DC with a jury packed with Democrat liberals and then expecting a guilty verdict. Is this not raising up the wicked? 

The Book of Malachi is an indictment on the United States and its government, its churches, its other institutions, and its people! 

Finally, God pronounces His answer to all this wickedness, the Day of the Lord is coming!

“Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” Says the LORD of hosts.” – Mal. 3:1

But, His coming will not be as many in Christendom have portrayed it, it will be with fire and burning!

“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi (pastors), and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness.” – Mal. 3:2-3

This reminds me of Jesus’ counsel to the lukewarm church of Laodicea in Revelation – “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed” While this judgement begins with the pastors, it does not stop there –

“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.” – Mal. 4:1

Who can endure the day of His coming? Well, God declares there will be some who endure –

“Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; so, a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name. “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.” – Mal. 3:16-18

And in the midst of the burning day of the Lord, God declares that –

“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.” – Mal. 4:2

Finally, before these days, God announces that He is going to send the prophet Elijah with a message –

“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.” – Ma. 4:5-6

This is revealing God’s love for the family, fathers and children. Earlier in Malachi God calls it His holy institution, which He loves (Mal. 2:11). Just how will Elijah do this? He will once again restore the Ten Commandments to their rightful place in society.

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

All God has intended for the earth and for mankind He has displayed in the heavenly Constellations. The entire Book of Malachi is displayed in the constellation Taurus and its three Deacons; Orion, Eridanus, and Auriga. 

Itaurus_mars_jupiter have written previously about the constellation Virgo and the part Jupiter plays in the Revelation 12 sign as it leaves Virgo on its way to Taurus, where it will meet Mars on August 13, 2024. Remember, the Hebrew name for the constellation Taurus is Shur which means ‘coming to judge’. The Hebrew name for Mars is Ma-Adim which means ‘the red one’ or ‘the Son of Man’. Also in the constellation Taurus is a cluster of stars known as the Pleiades which means ‘the congregation’. The clear meaning of this is “The Son of Man comes to judge with His Congregation, or saints.” 

OrionThe first Deacon, Orion means “He who comes forth as light, the Brilliant, the Swift.” The Arabs called him Al Giauza (the Branch), Al Mirzam (the Ruler), and Al Nagjed (the Prince). This constellation represents the coming Messiah who is coming swiftly to destroy His enemies.  

Orion is known as the mighty hunter, holding a mighty club in his right hand and a lion’s skin in his left hand. He wears a brilliant starry girdle to which hangs a mighty sword, the hilt of which is the head and body of a Lamb. His right shoulder is marked by the bright star Betelgeuse, his left shoulder by the star Bellatrix and his uplifted foot by the star Rigel. Betelgeuse means “the Branch coming”, Bellatrix means “Swiftly coming or Suddenly destroying”, and Rigel means “the Foot that crushes”. The three stars, from which hangs a glorious sword are known as the Three Kings and also as Jacob’s Rod. Just as Isaiah wrote –

“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. … Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.” – Isa. 11:1-5

EridanusThe second Deacon is found beneath the uplifted foot of Orion and is a great tortuous river, flowing eastward and westward, and down into the regions of darkness in the underworld. Its name is Eridanus, which means the River of the Judge. In Daniel’s vision of the four beasts and of God’s judgement of them, we find this same river of the judge. Daniel said –

“I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire; a fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. (It is the River of the Judge, for we read) . . .  The court was seated, and the books were opened. I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame.” – Dan. 7:9-11

Isaiah writes – “For behold, the LORD will come with fire And with His chariots, like a whirlwind, To render His anger with fury, And His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword The LORD will judge all flesh; And the slain of the LORD shall be many.” – Isa. 66:15-16. But even in the midst of judgement, God will show mercy for there will still be a chance “to be saved so as by fire” (1 Cor. 3:15). As Isaiah wrote, “For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.” (Isa. 26:9). After God showed Daniel His judgements on the four beasts He said –

“And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.” – Dan. 12:9-10

AurigaThe third Deacon is found above Orion and is a mighty man seated on the Milky Way, holding a band in his right hand and with his left arm holding up on his should a she-goat, which clings to his neck and looks out in astonishment upon the terrible Bull, Shur (Taurus); whilst in his lap are two frightened little kids which he supports with his great hand. This is the constellation Auriga. The Noetic origins of the word Auriga signify the Shepherd. He is the Good Shepherd who laid down His life for the sheep and here is seen firmly grasping the mother goat on his arm with her feet clasped around his neck and the little kids in His hand. The Band is the Band of power with which the head if the Church upholds and guides His people on the one side, and binds the enemy on the other. This is a picture of the almighty Savior exercising His offices of mercy and salvation in the midst of the scenes of judgement just as Scripture says.

“O LORD, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.” – Hab. 3:2

This constellation is fulfilling Isaiah’s 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

So, we have Taurus the Bull and its three Deacons portraying the coming of the Day of the Lord as Malachi prophesies. Taurus (Shur) representing the Christ coming with His saints to judge the earth; Orion the mighty Hunter whose foot is raised to crush his enemies; Eridanus the fiery river of judgment sweepy all before it; and Auriga the Good Shepherd protecting the flock from the fiery judgement that is poured out and binding the enemy with bands that cannot be broken while providing safety for those who fear the Lord.

There is reason for deep concern as the sign of Taurus will be fulfilled August 13, 2024, not far away. I pray all will listen to the message of the coming Elijah to return to the Lord and His Commandments and restore our families to a Biblical foundation.

Look Up

As Jesus was telling His disciples about the signs that would precede His second coming, He said “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:28). Have you ever given much thought to the meaning of “look up”? What do you see when you look up? The stars!

I know that most Christians do not pay attention to the creation, let alone the stars in the sky or give any thought to their meaning, but the Bible declares that they are messages sent from God to mankind and they contain keys to our future. So, I want to refresh one miniscule part of the stars in the sky – the Constellation Orion.

On the fourth day of Creation God created stars in the heaven –

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.” – Genesis 1:14-15

In the Book of Job God answers Job’s complaint and says –

“Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth (lit. Constellations) in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?” – Job 38:31-33

In other words, God has set the constellations in the heavens, and they have dominion over things that happen on earth.

I have written previously about the constellation Virgo and the part Jupiter plays in the Revelation 12 sign as it leaves Virgo on its way to Taurus, where it will meet Mars on August 13, 2024. Remember, the Hebrew name for the constellation Taurus is Shur which means ‘coming to judge’. The Hebrew name for Mars is Ma-Adim which means ‘the red one’ or ‘the Son of Man’. Also in the constellation Taurus is a cluster of stars known as the Pleiades which means ‘the congregation’. The clear meaning of this is “The Son of Man comes to judge with His Congregation, or saints.”

OrionThis Taurus sign will occur August 13, 2024, just a few years from now. But there is another happening in the sky that may also signal the nearness of the coming of the Lord. And it is happening in the constellation Orion. Notice that Orion is just before Taurus, in fact Orion is one of the Deacons of the constellation Taurus. There are only 12 major constellations but each of them has several Deacons or accompanying constellations. Taurus is one of the major constellations and Orion is one of Taurus’ Deacons.

Orion is known as the mighty hunter, holding a mighty club in his right hand and a lion’s skin in his left hand. He wears a brilliant starry girdle to which hangs a mighty sword, the hilt of which is the head and body of a Lamb. His right shoulder is marked by the bright star Betelgeuse, his left shoulder by the star Bellatrix and his uplifted foot by the star Rigel. Betelgeuse means “the Branch coming”, Bellatrix means “Swiftly coming or Suddenly destroying”, and Rigel means “the Foot that crushes”. The three stars, from which hangs a glorious sword are known as the Three Kings and also as Jacob’s Rod. Just as Isaiah wrote –

“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. … Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.” – Isa. 11:1-5

Orion constellation

Orion Constellation

Orion means “He who comes forth as light, the Brilliant, the Swift.” The Arabs called him Al Giauza (the Branch), Al Mirzam (the Ruler), and Al Nagjed (the Prince). This constellation represents the coming Messiah who is coming swiftly to destroy His enemies.

Astronomers now tell us that Betelgeuse is about to go into a supernova. Orion has been one of the most constant constellations in the sky so, what does this mean that one of it’s brightest stars is about to explode in a supernova? And this just a few years from the Taurus sign happening? And remember, Orion is one of Taurus’ deacons and is just before it in the sky.

It bears watching. Remember the stars were given for signs foretelling the future.

Remember the Wise Men who came to worship the birth of Jesus were following a star. They were watching the constellations and perceived that the King was about to be born. Are there any wise men left today who are watching the stars? And would they tell us that when Orion’s belt is loosed the King is coming?

How should I walk?

congressional BibleHow should a Christian walk in this current lawless time in America? King David has the answer, and he wrote it in Psalm 15 –

“LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart; He who does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor does he take up a reproach against his friend; In whose eyes a vile person is despised, but he honors those who fear the LORD; He who swears to his own hurt and does not change; He who does not put out his money at usury, nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.” – Ps. 15:1-5

chuck schumerWell, according to this, Jo Biden and the Democrat Party will not be found in heaven! There is only one word that comes to mind as Biden stands before the camera and claims he didn’t cause the rising gas prices or the inflation afflicting the country – LIAR! He does NOT speak the truth! Every time he blames Trump for his problems, he is backbiting with his tongue. He and the Democrat Party spend their days promoting vile people with their mouths and in the laws they pass – homosexuals, transgenderism, abortionists, Antifa, BLM, feminists, and globalists. In past years Biden swore to be moderate and uphold the Constitution but as soon as it is politically expedient he changes to the most progressive socialist out there! 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Amendments or Green New Deal – hmm – Green New Deal! Jo Biden and his family and most of the Democrat Party routinely take bribes from China, Ukraine, and Russia – then they accuse the Republicans of doing it.

weighed-in-the-balancesChristians better start walking uprightly before the hammer falls! How can this be done? By obeying what the word of God says and by using your common sense! By calling good – good, and evil – evil! When the Administration sends billion to protect the Ukrainian border but refuses to protect the American southern border, call it what it is – evil! When the Administration shuts down American energy and then goes to foreign sources to buy petroleum, call it what it is – evil! When the Administration runs with its tail between its legs, leaving 100’s of Americans in Afghanistan, call it for what it is – evil! When the Democrats support abortion and call it ‘woman’s choice’ – call it what it is – evil! When the Democrats allow 1000’s of homeless people to go without housing or medical help but give free housing and medical support to illegal immigrants coming across our southern border, call it what it is – evil! When Mayrorkas of Home Land Security sets up a “truth board” and swears before the Senate it is only for preventing foreign intervention he is lying! Mayorkas does not know the meaning of truth!

But, sadly, neither do many so called Christians. Jesus said, “. . . If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” To know the truth, you must spend time in His word. Jesus said His word is –

“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spiritand they are life.” – John 6:63

In other words, God’s word is living. If you read it, speak it, proclaim it, and pray it, it will have results! Considering all the political lies we are being bombarded with, we all need wisdom to know the truth but the word says we can ask God –

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.” – James 1:5-6

“But let him ask in faith”, that should be the easiest thing to do for a Christian. After all, we believe that the blood of Jesus washes our sins away, giving us access to the throne of God –

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:7

We have faith that if we walk in the truth (the light), His blood will cleanse us of all sin, therefor we should have faith to ask God for wisdom. Brothers and sisters, I pray you will walk in wisdom, living (and voting) the right way.

The Days of Elijah

day of elijahAs I consider the American landscape, there is one element that is glaringly weak – the American family! This very serious because the family is the foundation of all social activity – the Church and even government! King David wrote, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3). The family was formed at the very beginning of the creation. When God made woman and brought her to Adam, he said –

“This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” – Gen. 2:23-24

Thus began the very first marriage. God gave them a mandate, –

“So, God created man in His own image; in the image of God, He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” – Gen. 1:27-28

God said they were to be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. They were to bear godly seed. But man and woman fell, and sin entered the world, and the family began to disintegrate.

The last prophet of the Old Testament picks up this story at the end of the age, the prophet Malachi prophesied –

“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.

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. 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.

Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments (the 10 Commandments).

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. 4:1-6

The end-days are going to contain many earth-shaking events; judgement on the wicked like fire, revival and healing for the righteous as they turn once again toward God, and victory for those who trust in the LORD and the authority of His word. Then there is the promise of the coming of Elijah.

Remember what Elijah did during his first time on earth; he pronounced a 3-year drought on Israel because of their wickedness, he raised the widow’s son from the dead and caused her flour and oil to not be used up, he challenged the prophets of Baal to a contest on Mt. Carmel where he called down fire to burn up the offering and challenged Israel to choose whom they would serve, he called down fire on Ahaziah’s soldiers that came to arrest him, and he anointed kings and prophets.

This time Elijah will be concerned for the family, turning the hearts of the fathers towards their children and the hearts of the children towards the fathers. As the fathers live out the 10 Commandments and teach them to their children, families will be restored once again.

passoverRemember the Passover, it was the man of the house that had to apply the blood to the doorposts and lintel for protection against the destroyer. The father has an indispensable part to play in the protection of the family. He is to be prophet, priest, and king to his family: prophetically hearing from God for them, bringing the needs of his family up the throne of God in prayer, and protecting them with the authority he has from God. The wife is to be like the Holy Spirit is to the Church, a helper, honoring and praying for and encouraging the husband in his ministry to the family. The children are to learn obedience by carrying out the instructions of their parents.

This should be the message of the Church to its families. This will be the message the spirit of Elijah will bring to the earth once again. Today, men have forsaken their responsibilities, even Christian men, leaving the women to attend church, teach the Bible to the family, and leading the family into prayer. Often, it’s the women who attend meetings protesting the demonic inroads being made into the schools or voicing their concerns over tyrannical attempts in politics, when it should be the men! Remember the Biblical story of Barack and Deborah, when Barack refused to step up to his responsibility Debra had to do it and Barack lost the anointing he was to have had from God! (Judg. 4:9).

grace filled divorceToday’s men are losing their anointing from God because of the forsaking of family. The Church, so-called Christian writers and even government has succumbed to the demonic attack of divorce. The church no longer teaches against divorce and remarriage and the government has passed ‘no fault’ divorce laws the encourage divorce. But God does not look at it that way. Malachi writes – “For the LORD God of Israel says that He hates divorce.” and why?

“Yet you say, “For what reason?” Because the LORD has been witness between you and the wife of your youth, with whom you have dealt treacherously; Yet she is your companion and your wife by covenant. 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.” – Mal. 2:14-15

God commanded the first man and woman to be fruitful and multiply. God wants godly offspring and He gave by covenant a remnant of the Holy Spirit to that marriage to ensure it. That’s how a couple can produce a baby, a new living person!

How will Elijah answer these problems? First, he will call for repentance. Second, he will call for biblical teaching of God’s requirements. Third, he will encourage the men to begin fulfilling their biblical requirements for a healthy family. If the men do not respond, God is going to send a curse on the earth.

The spirit of Elijah is here now, and the word of God makes it plain what he is requiring. All that remans is for us to obey.

Remembering the Call

pilgrims john winthropOur Founding Fathers, the Pilgrims and the Puritans, believed in God and they looked to Him as their freedom; freedom to worship, freedom to govern themselves, freedom to preach the good news of the Gospel. They settled this country believing they had covenant with God and believing His Word –

Those who trust in the LORD Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. 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 125:1-3

George Washington prayingThose believes lasted, and they became the foundation of all who followed. When George Washington and the Continental Army were fighting for that freedom and facing defeats at the hand of the enemy, they took courage at such words from Thomas Payne –

theAmericanCrisis“These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like Hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph,”

The United States has weathered many storms through the years but, by being faithful to the heavenly calling we were founded with, we have overcome them all. Now, we are once again faced with another onslaught from the enemy of our souls – Communism. Its incidence has creeped into our blood stream like venom from a poisonous snake. But once again the Spirit of the LORD is raising up voices to call us to the fight, to once again overcome.

We must once again rise up as people to rebuild that which has ben lost.
