Have Faith for these Times

hurricane Ike 367.9 billionThese days are very disturbing, politically, socially, and even geologically. Since 2000, the US has seen many costly storm disasters. Hurricane Ike, in 2008, cost 37.9 Billion dollars. Between 2019 and 2020, 2 Wildfire, 1 Drought, 9 Tropical Cyclone, 21 Severe Storm, and 3 Flooding billion-dollar disaster events affected the United States.

These last several weeks we have seen the return of Nazi like actions against conservatives like Hitler used against the Jews in pre-second world war days: Social networks Twitter and Face Book censoring President Trump and pro-Trump supporters, the new Democrat head of Homeland Security Committee placing Rep. Josh Hawley and Senator Ted Cruiz on the No-Fly list. This with no thought to the facts that ANTIFA and BLM were responsible for the Capital attacks, big liberal corporations like Walmart cutting off GOP donations (really they are kick-back payments). 

Meanwhile, the prophets who have been speaking about another four years for the Trump Presidency are suffering rebuke from media and even Christians as their prophesies appear to have been false. It reminds me of the words of Jeremiah who also was rebuked for his prophesies.

Jeremiah 2“O LORD, You know; Remember me and visit me, and take vengeance for me on my persecutors. In Your enduring patience, do not take me away. Know that for Your sake I have suffered rebuke. Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts. I did not sit in the assembly of the mockers, nor did I rejoice; I sat alone because of Your hand, For You have filled me with indignation.

Why is my pain perpetual and my wound incurable, which refuses to be healed? Will You surely be to me like an unreliable stream, As waters that fail?” – Jer. 15:15-18

Imagine the pain and frustration Jeremiah must have felt as as the word God gave him appeared to not be happening. He must have even wondered if he had rightly heard the Lord. But, God was not done! He answered Jeremiah with these words –

Therefore thus says the LORD: “If you return, then I will bring you back; You shall stand before Me; If you take out the precious from the vile, You shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, but you must not return to them. And I will make you to this people a fortified bronze wall; and they will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you; for I am with you to save you and deliver you,” says the LORD. “I will deliver you from the hand of the wicked, And I will redeem you from the grip of the terrible.” – Jer. 15:19-21

In other words, don’t give in to doubt. Though doubters may abound, don’t join them – let them return to you and My word that I have spoken to you! Remember what Faith is –

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. . . . These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” – Heb. 11:8-13

I am always impressed by the words of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego to the pagan king Nebuchadnezzar –

shadrach,meshack,abednego“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” – Dan. 3:16-18

I have heard the words of the present day prophets speaking AND I can see the actions of those driven by the spirit of Antichrist acting out the instructions of their master. And I say, along with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, my God is able to do all the prophets are saying (to give Donald Trump another four years as President) but, if not, I will still not bow down to your progressive agenda or bow down to the fear you are trying to place on me! I will not stop openly worshipping the One Almighty God, who sits on the Throne ruling over heaven and earth. All kings (even you king Joe Biden) will bow their knees to Him one day. And I will not fear any pandemic the enemy may release against me because My God is able to heal me and deliver me.


Wielding the Sword of Joshua (reposted)

I posted this article in 2015 but I feel it is time to repost it as the heat of battle is so strongly on the faithful. It is the spirit of Antichrist’s aim to wear down the saints with one attack after another.

“He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.” – Dan. 7:25 Continue reading

Dark Forces over our Country

Are there such a things as Demonic Spirits who exert influence over nations? Well, the Bible claims there are.

“Then he (an angel) said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince (an evil spirit) of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.” – Dan. 10:12,13 Continue reading

Standing against the Devil

Virgo 3

Constellation Virgo and Planetary alignment Sept. 23, 2017

“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: heavenly-warfarebehold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” – Rev. 12:1-6

The Danger of Halloween

HalloweenWe are inundated with Halloween in the stores, in schools, and in the news media. It is the 2nd largest commercial holiday. And, it is a sign of the Christian Church’s apostasy. Since Halloween is a Druid celebration, it is not directly mentioned in the Bible, but its concepts are certainly mentioned and warned against. Bibleinfo.com has this say about the holiday –

“The origin of Halloween as we know it, began over 1900 years ago in England, Ireland, and Northern France. It was a Celtic celebration of the new year, called Samhain which occurred on November 1. The Celtic druids revered it as the biggest holiday of the year and emphasized that day as the time when the souls of the dead supposedly could mingle with the living. Bonfires were a large aspect of this holiday as well. Continue reading

Genesis is Our Foundation

Satan warring against saints

The Warfare Intensifies 

Many nations that once were Christian have now fallen to the false world view of Humanism and other false gods, which are the brain-child of the spirit of Antichrist. Under its relentless attack they have given up the very foundation of their faith, which is all found in the first eleven chapters of Genesis. If you are willing to dismiss any of Genesis 1-11, you make Jesus a liar and not your Savior, because He taught all of it as the truth of God. Satan’s slow but consistent onslaught in schools, so-called science, and seminaries has produced a generation of pastors and religious leaders that are willing to compromise God’s stated truth in the Bible. It is as Daniel prophesied about the spirit of Antichrist – Continue reading

7 words to change your life

Pastor Charles Cooley

“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” – Philippians 1:6

Years ago, in the late 1960’s, I was going through a great trial. I had been saved in 1964 in a little country Lutheran Church at the response to a Lutheran evangelist from Norway. I immediately began studying the Word of God and getting active in my church. By 1967 I began to realize those disciples in the Bible had something more than I did and began actively seeking to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. At that time God sent another Lutheran pastor to our town preaching about the Holy Spirit. In a short time I was filled to overflowing with the precious Holy Spirit and then my adventure with God kicked into high gear! There were prayer meetings complete with healings, deliverance, speaking in Continue reading

Weilding the Sword of Joshua

I used to wonder, why when God gave Joshua such promises of victory, were there any left who opposed God in the land promised to Moses and Joshua? God said to Joshua –joshua

Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. – Joshua 1:2-5

God Himself gives the answer to this question at the end of Joshua’s life – Continue reading
