Fresh Rain

socialism is the answerOur young people are being attacked by demonic forces with the doctrine of Humanism, the Woke culture and the Cancel culture. The educational establishment has portrayed the republican model of government as repressive and glamorized socialism. The teachings of Christianity are eliminated and replaced with the tenants of Marxism. While this has been going on, the Church has been asleep and Christian parents have blindly surrendered their children into the clutches of government run education. A government system that began by buying public school compliance with grants and incentives. Once their hooks are set, they gradually set curriculum standards that were against Biblical standards. All this happened right under the Church’s nose, so to speak. After two or three generations of this kind of indoctrination, these student became the future leaders of the country and now they are passing laws that reflect their humanistic teaching. And now we have such laws as the For the People Act of 2021, otherwise known as HR1, and the Equality Act, otherwise known as HR5. This bill would  add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as protected classes under federal civil rights law. Which would have multitudes of negative effects, especially on Christians.

The ‘older generations’ are to blame for letting these things happen. We were asleep and too concerned with making money and we did not seek God for help and direction. And we allowed our churches to give us pastors that were more interested in building big churches and money than they were in the truth. But, it is not too late to seek the LORD, and He has an answer. It is called Revival! God knew these conditions would be prevalent in the last days and He has an answer for them –

“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

Elijah will turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children – how? He will remind them to remember the 10 Commandments that used to be taught in America’s public schools –

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

These commandments embody the ‘general principles of Christianity’ that John Adams, our 2nd. President, referred to.

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.”

God told the fathers “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,” – (Deut. 4:9). As the fathers do this, God will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers.

God cares for the youth of every generation, in fact nearly every move of God has begun with the youth. King David, Jeremiah, King Josiah, John Calvin, Martin Luther, George Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards, D.L. Moody, and Evan Roberts of the Welch revival were all young men when God used them to start revivals. In our day, the Jesus People Movement began with the youth. God has promised the outpoured Holy Spirit to the young –

“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams  Your young men shall see visions.” – Joel 2:28

Most of the disciples Jesus chose were young and were among those who received the Holy Spirit when He came on Pentecost. I think God often chooses the young because the older generation has become too set in it’s ways and they have substituted man’s traditions for the life-giving word of the Holy Spirit. Jesus referred to this in His parable about new wine skins.

“Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” – Matt. 9:17

Now ‘old wine skins’ can be used but, they have to be soaked in water for a time, which refers to the Word of God, and go through a massaging process with oil to soften the skins and make them pliable again and most old skins have grown too comfortable to endure this process!

The Holy Spirit will be poured out again in the Latter Rain and many young people will be recipients. We should encourage them and make room for them, even if they act differently form us old wine skins! One evidence of this outpouring is already occurring in China, a nation of much persecution.

“According to a recent estimate, more than half of China’s one billion population are under 20! China is a nation of young people, so it is not surprising that the house churches have a preponderance of people in their 20’s and 30’s. Some of them are ex-Red Guards.“1

Some sources estimate over 72,000 people a day are being converted in Red China! All across the world there are indications of a significant move of the Holy Spirit in our generation. Revivals are breaking out in Tennessee, and they are beginning in California as well.

We should all take the prophet Zechariah seriously and begin to ask for fresh rain of the Holy Spirit –

“Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.” – Zech. 10:1

Don’t forget our heritage from the Lord – our children!

“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.” – Psalm 127:3-5

They will be like arrows in the hands of the prayer warriors and they will stand in the gate and confound the enemies of this age in the Name of the LORD! Pray for them and equip them to rise up in Jesus’ Name.

Israel, Jerusalem, and the Coming of Messiah

3rd TempleI have written several articles now about the rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem and momentum for this endeavor is growing but, let’s look at an alternative view. The prophet Malachi wrote –

“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. 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, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.” – Mal. 3:1-3 Continue reading

The Days of Elijah

then and nowWelcome to a family gathering. Some time ago the Holy Spirit spoke to me concerning the verses in Malachi 4:5, 6 where it says

“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.” Continue reading

The Return of Elijah

then and nowThis 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 Continue reading

Satan warring against saints

Put on the Armor of God

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:” – 2 Timothy 3:1 

This was Paul’s warning to Timothy. He followed it by a lengthy explanation of the problems that would come and how to counteract them. He then told Timothy that if he would follow Paul’s warning, he would be equipped for victory:

“that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:17 Continue reading

The Importance of Family

In 2016 I wrote an article named Return to the Family in which I highlighted the importance of family. At that time we were in the throws of a Presidential election and the news media was going wild with speculations and propaganda. Even though the election was won by Donald Trump, it seems as if the battle for our mind is continuing by the so-called news media. In that article I wrote –

“As the upcoming Presidential election draws near, many voices are flooding the airways proclaiming their perceived answers to our problems, each trying to drown out the other. The noise is so disharmonious as to cause a normal person to click the off switch, especially when one understands they are speaking lies and half-truths for the most part and that most of the “news media” does not disseminate news at all, but just the propaganda they have sold out to!”

The Covenant of Christmas

Malachi is the last book of the Old Testament and it is interesting that the last words of the book have to do with remembering and family.

“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 Continue reading

The Message of Moses and Elijah

As we prepare for the coming of the Lord, there is an event that will happen first – the coming of Elijah –

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

Here is a mystery! The disciples wondered about this prophesy and asked Jesus why Elijah (Elias) hadn’t come before Him? Jesus answered – Continue reading

Being a Mighty Man

day of elijah I can’t get away from believing that 2018 is a pivotal year for all the world but, especially for America and Israel. In America it is obvious that many have drifted away from the Biblical view we once had as a nation. Our belief in the value of every human life has  democrat pride been eroded by the doctrines of convenience. An entire political party has fallen prey to these anti-American values and while I could pick many of these lost values to highlight, I will stress only one – abortion, which is the willful destruction of a life deemed  unworthy to live. The Democrat party showed its true colors at its 2016 National Convention held in Philadelphia where they proudly proclaimed themselves as the Abortion Party! And there are many in other political parties that would also agree with Continue reading

The Latter Rain in a Time of Deception

day of elijahI wrote in a previous article titled 2018 Days of Elijah that humanism is the deception of our generation. Humanism places man in the seat of God as the chief arbitrator of what is good and what is bad. “A typical deception of humanistic thinking is the belief that you can compartmentalize your life into separate boxes, such as political, financial, social, or religious. And that truth is somehow different for each box. That is partly why seemingly moral people can vote for politicians who represent philosophies they personally find abhorrent. The Democrat Party caters to those who disrespect the American flag and all it stands for except – the welfare benefits it gives. And they want immigration laws that allow more like-minded people into the country. Yet, I know many Democrats who Continue reading
