This is one prophecy many do not like to think about. It exposes the root cause of almost all our problems as people and as a nation. It is the leading cause of the overwhelming majority of death in our country. Yet most are not willing to acknowledge it. What is this great evil that is exposed by this prophecy?
“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
“We are in captivity as much as they were; captivity to sexual immorality, to greed, to demonically inspired lifestyles, to destructive world views such as socialism, communism, and humanism, and to selfish rebellion which looks to government to solve their problems rather than to God, who alone can solve them!. Our educational communities are not teaching truth but are teaching doctrines designed to bring us down as a nation and a people. I know, I was a teacher for over 30 years in both High School and college and witnessed the corruption of liberalism first hand.
We are standing on a precipice, if we do not turn to the Lord – destruction, but, if we turn back to the Lord – healing, deliverance, and blessing. As the Lord spoke to Zechariah so, He is speaking to us –
“But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, they did not take hold of your fathers? [Your fathers wouldn’t listen.] and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do to us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us” – (Zec 1:6)”
I love the 3:16’s in the Bible and the one that most people have heard of is in the Book of John, the beloved disciple –
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
Another important 3:16 is found in 1 Corinthians and it reveals that we are the Temple of God because the Holy Spirit dwells in us. But, as the picture above reminds us, fire is a part of being the Temple of God. When John the Baptist prophesied about the coming Messiah, he said –
“John answered, saying to all, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” – Luke 3:16
Family is one of the greatest blessings God has given to mankind. It is the bedrock of all mankind’s endeavors. Even if you are single, you had a father and a mother. Even if you do not appreciate them, yet they have their influence on your life and through your life on many others lives as well. A broken family line only takes one link in the chain turning to God to recapture God’s plans for your family – you.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto goodworks, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” – Eph. 2:10
Family is so important to God that He assigns the great work of restoration of family to one of the end-time prophets – Elijah: Continue reading →
The church in Thyatira had many good qualities and works, and their works were increasing. But, they had the cart before the horse, so to speak. Right relationship with the Son and Father will lead to good works, but works alone can never lead to right relationship with the Son and the Father. Jesus told a story that has always put the fear of God into me –
“Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” – Matthew 7:21-23
Who then can be saved? Those who are not lawless and obey Him. God told King Saul, through Samuel, “Obedience is better than sacrifice.”
While Thyatira was doing many good things, they were allowing disobedience to God’s word in their midst. They were allowing women to usurp the authority God placed in men. I know many today will disagree with my interpretation of this but, I must be faithful to declare the truth that God has revealed, not what a politically correct culture declares. Continue reading →
As we are just a few days from Christmas it would be good to reflect where we are in God’s plan for mankind. We know the Hebrew people had the promise of Messiah’s coming long before He actually came and when He really did come, many in Israel missed it because they were looking for a warrior King who would re-establish the kingdom of David. They forgot that God loved all people, all His creation, as much as He did His people Israel. God foreknew most of Israel would reject their Messiah and so the door would be open for all people to come into the Kingdom of God through the Grace that was won by Jesus on the cross.

(God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Day of Eternity – 7 of my 30 Grandchildren)
As the song plays, I want to share a great truth with you all – it’s about family. I have important news for all of you but, especially for my grandchildren, and especially the boys – you don’t get to choose your ancestors! God does that for you and you just have to live with it and make the best of it! Below is an example of what I mean – Continue reading →
Does anyone remember Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Media accusing Donald Trump of being un-American and un-patriotic because he did not agree to accept election results without examining the possibility of voter fraud? According the media talking-heads, he was the worst Presidential candidate we have ever had!
Now, after the Clinton s and their leftest followers lost, they are clamoring for re-counts because of fraud. And isn’t strange they are not worried about voter fraud in places like California or Illinois, where illegals and dead people freely vote but, only the three states that could change the Electoral College votes? Hmmm?
Days of Noah
If you want to know the reason for this kind of deception, read the article Days of Noah. Jesus referred to these days as a sign of His soon coming. In Genesis we read why God destroyed the world because of the people of those days –
“Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” – Genesis 6:5
For my 80th birthday I received a special gift and I want to share some of it with you because it helps define what true riches are – family. While I have 8 wonderful children, 30 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren and all of them are precious and special – each in their own way, seven of them worked on a special gift for me – a music album for Christmas. They named themselves Day of Eternity and the album is named Emmanu-El, Continue reading →
