In the early hours of this morning, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said “Arise and walk through the land!” He asked “What did you see?” and I said, “I see people going about their lives, working, shopping, playing, and watching entertainment.” Then I entered the churches of the land and He again asked, “What did you see?” In some churches I saw the preacher up front and the people sitting in the pews but, the people seemed to be asleep as the preacher seemed to be telling them fairy tales. In other churches there seemed to be a celebration going on with loud music and lights leading the people who were dancing and happily enjoying all the noise. In a few churches I saw the minister up front with his Bible open and he was calling the people to repent and receive the Lord. I saw the people in tears, kneeling, and worshiping the Lord.

As cities across the nation cave in to rioters and anarchists, we as Christians need to be in prayer more than ever before. Scriptures warn us that “But know this, that in the last days perilous (fierce) times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Tim. 3:1-5). Continue reading
Many have said they believe the year 2020 will be a pivotal year, a year in which nations will choose whom they will follow, Jesus the Lamb of God or Satan the god of this world.
April 9th will be the first major event of the year, Passover, the first of the Feasts of the Lord. It marked the time when God’s people had to choose if they would follow God and His servant Moses or if they would remain in bondage to the gods of Egypt. And what was the sign of their choice? It was the blood of the sacrifice lamb painted on the doorpost of their house. All those who believed God and His servant Moses took a lamb into their houses on the 10th of Nisan Continue reading
This song’s message needs to be heard by the Church.
As I wrote in Preparation for the Battle Ahead, there is no victory in this end-time battle for the lukewarm. Churches that have surrendered to the world’s standards will not be able to stand for Christ in the battles ahead. Those that do not preach the word of God to sinners will not stand with Christ. They will instead be given a “spirit of strong delusion”, so they cannot receive the truth of God. Continue reading
Christmas time is my favorite time of the year. I’ve always wondered why, but, I think I know now. You see, I spent my teen years in a home broken by divorce. Christmas always reminded me of a time when we were all together. Although we didn’t live in a mansion, we lived in a railroad car converted into a trailer home, we were together, it was home. And Christmas represents God sending His Son Jesus to bring us home. It reminds us all that no matter where we are at here on earth, be it a railroad car or a cave, when we are together with those who love us – it is home, where we are loved and cared for.
This song touches my heart with precious memories and I hope it will yours as well.
(Lord, I’m Coming Home by Day of Eternity, Hilgreen Press)
Your circumstances in life really don’t matter if you welcome the savior into them, it can be home. If you have wandered away, seeking false hopes or pleasures that left you empty, you can always turn around and head for home. Jesus will be waiting with arms of love open to you.
Don’t let guilt or shame keep you from the joy of Christmas at home. That little babe who came on Christmas became a man and He bore all your guilt and shame on a cross so that you could be free. It’s His Christmas gift to you. Don’t miss it.
May the true Joy of Christmas be yours this year.
The church of Sardis presents us with the dilemma Jesus warned about in the parable of the tares (in Matt. 13:24-43): There will be true and false Christians in the church right up to the 2nd coming of Christ when the angels will gather out the tares and burn them in the fire. The message of repent and watch for the Lord’s coming is given to all but, only the faithful will hear it. The following video explains the church of Sardis –
“These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God:
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing – and you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked – 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.
