The God of Covenants

At times like these, times when an entire political party has been taken over by leftist leaning globalist, it is time to look back to Scripture for the answers to our problems and Isaiah is a good place to start.

“Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace. (The Democrat Party has become the Party of Death as they wholeheartedly support abortion. Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama, and Susan Rice illegally sold arms to terrorists and then sacrificed Ambassador Stevens to cover up their transgressions in Benghazi. Then they made up accusations against Donald Trump of colluding with the Russians, which they themselves were doing.)

Therefore, justice is far from us, nor does righteousness overtake us; we look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness, but we walk in blackness! We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes; we stumble at noonday as at twilight; we are as dead men in desolate places. (The FBI and Justice Department hid the truth from us, and the majority of News Media colluded with them to hide the truth from the people.)

We all growl like bears, and moan sadly like doves; we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before You, and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us, and as for our iniquities, we know them: In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. (While some conservatives growled at what was happening, others like Mike Pence failed when they had the chance to disallow contested votes in the States and so let fraud win the day. But, mostly our own sins as a nation testified against us.)

Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So, truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor;” – Isa. 59:7-15 (Italics mine)

Truth does not fail overnight. It takes time, sometimes generations of turning away from the source of all truth – Jesus! Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  He is the embodiment of the Truth and yet the Church in America, who is supposed to represent Him to the world, has let down His standards and sided with the world. This failure is perhaps best stated by Pastor Joe Wright of Kansas –

Pastor Joe Wright of KansasThis interesting prayer was given in Kansas, USA, at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people. When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:
“Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says: “Woe to those who call evil good”, but that is exactly what we have done.
* We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
* We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.
* We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.
* We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.
* We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
* We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
* We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
* We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
* We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.
* We have abused power and called it politics.
* We have embezzled public funds and called it essential expenses.
* We have institutionalized bribery and called it sweets of office.
* We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.
*We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
* We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh GOD, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!”

I am glad there are a few men of God who yet speak the truth but, they are in the minority. To the majority of the Church God is “wondering that there is no intercessor!” But that does not stop God!

“For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, And was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, Fury to His adversaries, Recompense to His enemies; The coastlands He will fully repay.” – Isa. 59:17-18

Most people in the United States have never heard of God being dressed in garments of vengeance, or of a God of fury and zeal but, just remember Jesus as He made a whip of cords and drove out the money changers from the Temple!

“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, it is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” – Matt. 21:12, 13

And now remember, God is a God of Covenants and when He makes one He doesn’t forget it! And He made a Covenant with our American forefathers which He will not forget. And if His representatives on the earth, the Church, will not overthrow the wickedness that has taken over this Covenant nation, He will, and it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Heb. 10:31). Isaiah continues with the final outcome of this confrontation with God –

“So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” – Isa. 59:19

Our Congress which was meant to reflect the freedoms given by God is now under the thumb of Antichrist forces where Democrat leader Jerry Nadler can say “God’s Will is No Concern of This Congress” But, Jerry and all his cohorts, and that includes Joe Biden, are going to find out what it feels like to fall into the hands of the living God. God’s Holy Spirit is going to lift up a standard against them and that standard is Jesus and the Word of God. Isaiah continues with the promise “The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob, says the LORD.” Revival is coming and is now beginning!

I am praying for this to begin. Begin with me, begin with my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. And begin in all the United States and the world! Because I know that God is a God of Covenants, and He states –

“As for Me,” says the LORD, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the LORD, “from this time and forevermore.” – Isa. 59:21

The very next words the LORD gave to Isaiah are a command of hope to those who trust in Him –

“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.” – Isa. 60:1, 2

The darkness of the leftist globalists may be upon the whole earth and gross darkness may be upon the people but to those who trust in the LORD will see the glory of the LORD as they arise and begin to shine with the light that is in them – Jesus Christ

“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.” – John 8:12

The people are growing tired of the oppression that is being put upon them and they are waiting for someone to speak the truth to them! Why don’t you be that someone?

Time for Truth (reposted)

I originally posted this article in February, 2015, a month before the 2015 Blood Red Moons occurred. Not much has changed on the political landscape, except the Democrat spin machine has grown even more divisive and bitter. I felt it was time to repost the article.

Biden_ObamaWoe to us! Another political election is nearing! As if we do not hear enough lies and disinformation from the news media already, now it is amplified by all the political maneuvering of Democrats and Republicans as they try to tell the most believable lies to the people to get their votes – lies which history proves they have little intention of keeping!

The Message of Zechariah gets Personal

zechariahIn my article Zechariah Speaks Yet Today I wrote the following warning –

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)”

A Time for Truth

spurgen quoteMany in the modern church like to rely on “grace alone” to excuse their ungraceful manner of living. They live like the world six days a week and then put on a ‘holy’ face for Sunday. Many of them vote Democrat or Socialist in the elections and think they won’t have to answer to God for approving abortions, homosexual lifestyles, or other anti scriptural stands. I single out Democrats because they are the party that openly supports murdering the unborn as if they weren’t real humans even though Scripture clearly declares they are – Continue reading

The Return of Truth

ThreatsHamasHizballah480ENGThe United States and its ally, Israel, are facing existential threats from Russia, Syria, Iran, Turkey, and Arab terrorists like Hamas and the PA. In the face of these threats the Democrat Party (don’t call them the Democratic Party because they are anything but democratic!), which has become the party of the far-left, is doing all it can do to undermine the United States and its policies. Their judges, appointed under Clinton and Obama, block every common sense move to limit the entry into our country of terrorists who want to destroy us. They would like us to believe it is just President Trump they are against but, that is a lie, they are against America and its Christian heritage! To listen to Obama give his recent speeches against division in the country is laughable because he is among the biggest dividers and destroyers of America.

To you who are Democrats, I say WAKE UP! The Democrat Party has changed,  it is no longer ‘the party of the people’, if it ever was, but it has been taken over by leftist with a Marxist agenda. These people have infiltrated the Democrat Party, the Washington establishment (including Republicans), the news media, the public school agenda, and even the church. They have successfully enslaved Americans through their welfare programs, the Obama health care program, and bailouts to banks and industrial companies.

Baltimore riots 2015Blacks and Hispanics march and riot in the streets, kneel when the National Anthem is played as if this will bring justice. They are ignorant of the ways of justice and they reject the way of God, who alone can bring justice. Without righteousness, there can be no justice. As Isaiah wrote –

“Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the streetAnd equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.” – Isa. 59:14,15

feminized churchMost of the church has succumbed to the spirit of Babylon and is riding the Beast and is drunk on the wine of apostasy. The church, who should be the source of truth, has forsaken it for the world’s allurement of comfort, riches, and power. They have allowed homosexuals and lesbians in the pulpit and then wonder why the truth (God’s truth) has fallen in the gutter of the street. There is little preaching against sin or for the Holy Spirit and His gifts because they know if they do they will suffer loss and persecution. They have placed women in control, even though God’s word speaks against it (1 Tim. 2:12) and the women lead them into deception, as this Baptist minister speaking for abortion. Then there is this statement by a United Methodist Bishop –

“United Methodist Church bishop Dr. Karen Oliveto is not only an ordained member of the Methodist Church, but is also an open lesbian — the first in the denomination, according to The Denver Post. She also thinks that Jesus Christ was a bigot — or used to be.”

Christian ApostacyThis is just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ of a ‘lukewarm’ church that has lost its voice to speak for truth and righteousness. There is just one message left for such a church and it is the message of the Holy Spirit given to Babylon – “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” – Rev. 18:4. Judgment is about to fall, and it will begin at the house of God. Now is the time to choose according to the last message of Revelation –

“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” – Rev. 22:11

Now, you must ask yourself, as I must also, am I living according to God’s standards and not my own? Am I living according to God’s will and not my own? If we are sincere in asking these questions, the Holy Spirit will answer us speedily, and then we must obey.

There is a remnant who will take these words seriously (Many are called but, few are chosen – Matt. 24:14) and the devil will certainly fight against us as will Christians who don’t want to change (“having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” – 1 Tim. 3:5) but, there is hope –

“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. – Isa. 43:1,2

God promises to go with all those who will not forsake His truth and who will stand for Him.

The time of testing is soon upon us and it is time to “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” – Ephesians 6:14-18


Are These the Days of Elijah?

Temple of God

I just heard one preacher say “These are the days of Elijah” and I believe it! Elijah ministered during a time of government elitism and corruption and when social norms had departed their Biblical roots and were now pagan in their norms: worshipping false gods that brought them money, power, lust, and control. We are there!

Elijah challenged them with the true God and sometimes with laughter at their foolishness. When he challenged the prophets of Baal to a ‘cook-off’ . He told Ahab, the wicked king at that time –

“Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.” – 1 Kings 18:19

Elijah then challenged Baal’s prophets to a contest –

“Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken. And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.” – 1 Kings 18:23-25

Now the prophets of Baal could not call down fire, no matter how hard they tried so, Elijah taunted them –

“Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.”

They tried harder, even becoming bloody as they cut themselves – but to no avail. Then Elijah took over and called the fire of God down from heaven. He challenged the people as well, saying –

“How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.”

Some today are following Baal, the god of false promises. They may be trusting in government as the answer to their problems: that is like leaning on a broken stick for support, government can only give what it takes and it never gives back as much as it takes and it often lies about what it will do!

Or they may be looking to a church that is preaching prosperity and feel-good messages but it is only God that can prosper anyone and He always demands obedience to His word. King David wrote “I have never seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging bread” (Ps 37:25) but, the price is ‘righteousness”.

Or they may look to a political party to solve their problems like many did 8 years ago with Barak Hussein Obama who promised ‘hope and change’ – well the best I can say about this is to play a video that expresses what he and the Democrats gave us –

This video doesn’t exist

This may sound funny to you if you are a Republican but, in fairness, they are no better. They campaigned for 8 years promising to repeal ObamaCare, even voting for it when they knew Obama would veto it. But, when they had a Republican President who promised to sign it into law, suddenly they didn’t have the votes! The Republican House and Senate not only didn’t defund Planned Parenthood, they gave more money to it. They talk big during election time but disappear during legislation time. They hide their real voting record behind all the procedural votes taken on every bill so they can please their constituents no matter which side of the isle they are on.

President Trump is no different. He prides himself on being the ‘great negotiator’ but, he gave away Syria to the Russians and Iranians and reneged on his promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem. Now he is backtracking on building the wall! His willingness to work deals with Schumer and Pelosi highlights his ego and pride more than one who stands on principle. He seems oblivious to Islamic deception and to God’s word as he prepares to negotiate with the PA and Hamas to give them part of Israel for a country.

He will find that God does not negotiate! Those who seek to divide His land will reap bad consequences!

“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. – Joel 3:2

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” – Zec. 12:3

These indeed seem to be ‘Days of Elijah’ and those who love God and the truth need an answer by fire as Elijah did.

“and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God.”

John the baptist, who came in the spirit of Elijah said of Jesus –

“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

It is time for the fire of the Holy Spirit to burn away the chaff and the dross from the people of God so we may be clean wheat and silver without blemish. When the world looks at the Church, they need to see someone different than the world – someone who can heal the sick, cast out demons, and declare truth not tainted by political correctness or fear!

This is the word of the Lord – hear it.



God’s Answer to the Antichrist System

final kingdomIn Revelation 12 and 13, Jesus revealed to John what the last kingdom of man would look like on the earth. We are fast approaching it – but many do not recognize it because it is so often couched in economic and political terms and many think anything of God must be religious in nature. But, it is spiritual in nature because it is all about God’s final plan for man. Jesus summed it all up in two portions of Scripture – the Lord’s Prayer and Psalm 2. Continue reading

The 4th of July

18458-July-4th-Quote “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever.” John Adams, 2nd President of the United States

Trumpets of Judgment

revelation8-13“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.” – Revelation 8:1

As the 7th seal is opened there is silence in heaven where normally there is constant praise and worship. Why? I believe it is because God is grieving for the judgments that are about to be released on those God created. God told Ezekiel –

“Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord GOD, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?'” – Ezekiel 33:11 Continue reading
