Wake Up Church!

What this world needs right now is a visitation by the Holy Spirit. But, the Holy Spirit will not come to a church that is not earnestly seeking Him. Most of the churches are laboring under the condemnations spoken of in Revelations 2 and 3 and innumerated in Christ’s letters to the Churches: some have left their first love and have become caught up in legalism, some have fallen to the doctrine of Balaam and have allowed the teachings of the world into their midst, some have given in to feminism and allowed women to be pastors thus allowing sexual immorality to infect their congregation, some have gone into the trap of commercialism to build their numbers and are known for their lively worship but, Jesus says, they are dead, some have settled into the routine of liturgies to cover their lukewarmness not knowing they stand naked before God. To all these churches Jesus says, “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; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.” 

Jesus loves His Church but, it is not ready to face the warfare that is coming upon it. The ‘lawless one’ is being released with all the power, signs, and lying wonders of Satan and the Church will not stand unless she is filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus taught that when the Holy Spirit came –

“And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment:” – John 16:8

Jesus said “Of sin, because they do not believe in Me.” Jesus was there in the beginning. He said “I am the Alpha and the Omega”, in other words, He is the beginning and He will be the end of the age. How many churches have given in to the false teaching of evolution among their ranks? Evolution denies the creation of God described in Genesis, thus it denies the fall to sin, and thus it denies the needs of a Savior. Thus it denies Jesus, the Christ! And churches that are OK with this teaching are denying their very reason to exist. Satan has the victory over them already! We must believe in Jesus and He said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me!”

Jesus said “of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more.” Righteous is required to enter heaven. You can’t live like the devil six days a week, then go to church on Sunday and expect that will get you entry into heaven! Righteous living is required, every day. Some churches are teaching that God’s blessings are yours no matter how you live. They are preaching how to live in this world with blessings. This is a false gospel. Jesus taught the Gospel of the Kingdom. In other words, He taught how to get ready for heaven, not this earth. We are all leaving this earth, some to heaven and some to hell. The true Gospel is preparing us for heaven.

Jesus said “of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.” The ruler of this world is Satan and Jesus is going to destroy him and his surrogate, the Antichrist, at the last battle, the Battle of Armageddon. Meanwhile, Jesus has given to His Church the authority to bind him and his works on this earth. As we see riots, burning, and looting taking place in our cities, we, the Church, have the authority to bind them and cast them down. We have been given His ministry “to proclaim liberty to the captives, the recovery of sight to the blind, and to set at liberty those who are oppressed,”

So then this the the scope of the ministry of the true Church; to preach against sin and to repent, to preach righteousness, and to preach judgment on Satan and his works and all associated with him and to set free those captured by him. And the ministry of every member in the body of Christ is to pray that these things happen, in ourselves and then in the church and then in the world!

Wake up Church, the enemy is at the gates!

Wise or Foolish

10-virgins“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.” – Matt. 25:1-13 Continue reading

Recovering Our First Love

UN false peaceBattle lines are being formed – ‘the kings of the earth’ are setting themselves up against the Lord.

“Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.” – Ps. 2:1-3 Continue reading

The Call to be Salt and Light

I wrote this article in 2016 but, its truth needs to be shared again. The Church has slipped even further into the Babylon system that will form the Harlot of Babylon. Jesus taught –

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:13-16

The salt Jesus is talking about is that preservative that fights corruption – the corruption of sin. And the light He is talking about is that God given exposure to the truth as God defines it. It alone can drive away darkness. Mystery Babylon cannot stand either. Her spirit thrives in darkness and she is full of corruption. If we would follow Jesus we must be salt and light in our time. One thing about salt – you always know it is there! There is no hiding it. And light always exposes darkness for what it is. Continue reading

The True Message of Exodus



The New Land of Egypt – the World

“For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.

But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.’

Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward. Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day, I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them. Yet they did not obey Me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.” – Jer. 7:22-26

Lessons from the church of Laodicea

This is the last letter out of seven that Jesus dictated and it is perhaps the saddest for it highlights how easy it is for all of us to get complacent and satisfied with the status quo. Hear the message –

(I would like to thank Day of Eternity for the background music used in this video)

I like to think of these seven letters as ‘love letters of Jesus‘ to me. He said, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”  Continue reading

The Throne of God

jesus-lion-lamb“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.” – Revelation 5:6-8 Continue reading

Entering the Rest of God

web pictures 099“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28

Jesus has a message that is valuable for today – He can show us all the way to rest. In this world we all have struggles, heartaches, disappointments, failures, betrayals, broken promises, fears, sickness, and every other malady you can name. As one disillusioned philosopher wrote: “Life is hard – then you die!” Even the Bible declares, “Man is born to trouble like sparks to smitten steel!”

Oh, there are some bright spots along the way but, we all wonder, even if just to ourselves, there must be more than this? The good news is – THERE IS! The Bible is full of stories of people being led into rest – in both Old and New Testaments. Perhaps a good one to start with is God’s deliverance of the Hebrew children from Egypt. The following message was given in July of 2000 on The Rest of God.  Continue reading

The Seven Churches-Sardis

menora“These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive; but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.

You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
