The Coming PERFECT STORM

 

As In The DAY’S of NOAH……Then the RAIN CAME.

The sound of Thunder in the Storms reminds me of the sound of Approaching Hoof Beats. The lightning reminds me of JESUS Coming in the Clouds.

Gabriel is practicing the Notes of His Trumpet Call as I write this. What is truly Sad, is so few people on earth have ears to hear the LOUDEST SOUND the world will ever know.

You can ONLY HEAR this Sound with the ears of a Born-Again Heart. If you do not have a Born-Again Heart then you have a heart of Stone, whose weight will take you down into the Abyss instead of UP to Heaven.

Then in an Instant, a TWINKLING of an EYE, ALL Believers in JESUS will FINALLY be Rescued, SAVED from what is Soon Coming to Planet Earth. Then maybe, just maybe when you realize loved ones and friends you know, just disappeared before your eyes.

The HOLY SPIRIT will plant a SEED of The TRUTH of GODS WORD in your Heart of Stone and you will begin to change before its too late for you. And you will no longer believe the LIE, and get a Bible and READ THE TRUTH.

YOUR LIFE STORY.

 God has many attributes of which Omniscience is one. This attribute means God knows the past, present and future. We live our lives based on yesterday. We know nothing of today until we live it, and we do not know anything about tomorrow. In fact, the future is like a mystery play or novel.

The author has written a plot that unfolds with each curtain or chapter.

When we read the story, it takes us through all our emotions as we become involved in the characters. We too are living a story. Like the characters in the play or novel we too have a beginning and ending. Ours is a story with pages and chapters that represent the seasons of our lives.

We think we can control the novel by taking charge, making decisions, planning out our lives. But, if you have learned from your past experiences; you will understand that all you can do is plan in pencil.  Someone else has the eraser.

Our future is a mystery to us, but not to God. God has created everything, including time. He stands outside of time, above time and sees everything at the same time. That is why He knows your beginning and ending.

Your life story is no mystery to Him and He does not want it to be a mystery to you either. So, He gave you a book to read. As with any creation the product comes with a book of instruction that we must follow.

You know what that is. It is no different than the owners’ manual you received with your new car, television or washing machine. This book called the Bible answers all your questions by the one who created you. It unveils the mystery play or novel in which your life and death are written into.

The Bible is the history of mankind’s past, present and future. It has been called HIS-Story, because it was written about Him. Your existence is not about you…it is about HIM. But look closely for you are written in the story as well. Your story is about your individual journey. The book gives you clear directions on how to find your way to two distinctly different places that will become your home forever…hell or Heaven.

The paths are clearly marked, but the choices you make along the way will determine the path you are on. The good news is that if you are on the wrong path there is always time to change. The bad news is that change of direction can only happen until your last breath. Then your destiny will be sealed by you alone, by the choices you made. You are responsible for your path through life and your ultimate destiny…not God.

GOD sent HIS HERO to show you how to live and ultimately how to find your way home.  God Himself has written the greatest story ever told about this Hero in a book. The name of the book is the Bible. The Hero is Jesus. The villain is satan. The theme is Salvation. This books singular purpose is to Glorify God.

Jesus …a real person.

Jesus…. who lived a real life.

Jesus…who died a real death on the Cross.

Jesus… who came back from the dead.

Jesus… whose TOMB IS EMPTY !

Jesus… who is coming back Very SOON !

Jesus…who said I will never forsake or forget you !

Jesus…who reaches out to you with HIS NAIL PIERCED HAND.

Jesus… who says TRUST IN ME TO TAKE YOU HOME !

 PERHAPS  TODAY !

YES, IN YOUR LIFETIME ! ! !

WHO  R  U  FOLLOWING ?

The Nation of Israel is Gods Prophetic Time Clock for the World and God is still molding Israel on an anvil with hammer blows: Israel is a nation that has been destroyed, re-gathered, and has re-emerged in time as the focus of world attention. Its capitol Jerusalem is indeed a cup of trembling for the world.

No other nation exists as a declaration to the world that in the records of her history, we find our roots and in the predictions of her prophets we find our future. And YES the Jewish Messiah is also the Christ of the Cross.

When Abraham made the trip to Mt. Moriah to sacrifice his son Isaac on an alter to God… Isaac asked the question “Where is the Lamb?”. Jewish fathers for 3,500 years asked the same question as they searched for the perfect lamb to be slain as a sacrifice for the sins of their family.

The question stopped with the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D.

Today, the Sanhedrin is re-established, the priesthood has been identified, the cornerstone of the temple is ready, the instruments of sacrifice are ready, the red heifer is ready, the ark of the covenant is ready, the temple structure is ready to go up next too the Dome of the Rock…IT ALL AWAITS GODS PERFECT TIMING.

The SAD PART is that this new End Times Tribulation Temple will be built for the FALSE Messiah who will establish the 7 year Peace Treaty between Israel and the Arab Nations. This ANTI-Christ will then go into the Holy of Holies 3.5 years into the 7 year Peace Treaty and proclaim himself to be god….bringing Hell to Earth.

The cry in Israel today is “Messiah…Come Now.” But they will ACCEPT and worship the False Messiah first; who comes and will slaughter 2/3 of the nation of Israel. This will be Israels Final Holocaust.

Then the True Messiah the REAL Lamb of God, THE LION of the Tribe of Judah…The LORD of LORDS…the KING of KINGS…KING JESUS…The SON of the LIVING GOD who died on the Cross for the sins of mankind; will come the 2nd Time and will appear in the sky to save HIS 1/3 REMNANT of the Nation of Israel who will recognize HIM and BELIEVE.

Zechariah 12:10…“I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me (Yeshua / Jesus) whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.”

The God who made you is the God who was broken for you.

He is the God who cries tears over you.

True peace is resting within the protection of someone greater than you.

Go find your quiet place, call on HIS name, He will hear you. Then wait quietly…

it will be worth it, because when the answer comes the invisible God

will become real to you in a greater way. Then when you receive your answer…be still…

and know that HE is YOUR GOD.

CHOOSE FAITH, CHOOSE YESHUA / JESUS !

My Daily Prayer is that YOU realize before it’s too late, that JESUS CAME
FOR YOU TOO.

Listen closely, can you hear HIM?

JESUS doesn’t shout HE Whispers your name.

When HE calls you UP to meet HIM in the Air, you will find that your life

has been ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY.

LISTEN to the SON of GOD

listen to the Son of God

While there is still time and you have breath…

LISTEN to the SON of GOD 

  1. The Church asks… The Lord:

Matthew 7: 23 “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven. Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform miracles?

…and then I will declare to them, I never knew you, depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.”

  1. The Lord asks… You:

Matthew 16:15, “But who do YOU say that I am?     And Peter said, You are the Christ the Son of the Living God!”.

Luke 18:8 “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” Whose Voice are You Listening To? God said… “This is My SON…Listen to HIM!

Jesus came to Earth to save sinners. Jesus is the ultimate evangelist. Your only purpose here in this life is to come to know Him as your personal savior. And then you are to get into the battle for the hearts and minds of lost people.

Remember what the Bible says about the unbelievers, and have compassion.

“The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

 They are “futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart is darkened” (Romans 1:21).

 They are “dead in their trespasses and sins”; they walk “according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience”; and they are “by nature children of wrath” (Ephesians 2:1-3).

 Many people attend a church…Few are committed to being the church. Throughout time it has always been about the MANY and the FEW , the TARES and the WHEAT, the WIDE ROAD and the NARROW ROAD.

GOD help us consider the wonder of it all; that JESUS determined that HE would rather go to Hell on our behalf, than live in Heaven without us.

JOY IN THE MORNING

His Joy is that He finally will come to fulfill His promise to save you from yourself if you turn to HIM in Faith.

My Joy is that He chose to come for me. He comes for all those who take the time to seek the Truth with “all our heart, mind and strength.” For if you choose to seek Him you will find Him and He will give you faith and strength for this journey called life.

And when this life ends He will be there to greet you if you know HIM as your Savior. HE will wipe away all your tears, put His arms around you and show you the new home He has made especially for you to enjoy for eternity.

Why, because He promised! And God never lies.

May you find joy in the assurance of your Salvation. To know in your heart of hearts beyond a shadow of doubt, that you know Him as your Savior. That you will finally understand that your name, which has been pre-written in eternity past into Gods book of Life has now been transcribed into the Lambs Book of Life by your acceptance of Christ’s death on the Cross for your sins.

Christ’s death in exchange for your death…He died that you might have ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN. As a Believer in Yeshua-Jesus as Lord you now have a partner to help you live life. The Holy Spirit will then reside in you. He will give you a new heart, a new conscience, a newly energized soul and a new will.

So live your life for Him. Live life boldly in His strength. You will not fail. He will set you before all people as a living stone that is part of the True Church, the Ecclesia, the called out ones so you can point the way to the glorious future that awaits all believers in Yeshua the SON of GOD.

May the Almighty God, The Ancient of Days, the Lord God of Israel and His Church guard your heart and mind and soul, by the power of His indwelling Holy Spirit!

May the Holy Angels sent to protect you encircle your life, protecting all those you love and cherish as you go forth and follow the command of Yeshua to take your place in the Battle of the Ages.

The Battle for Truth….His Truth…Till He Comes Again.

This is the Promise of the Living God to all His children…to all those precious in His sight…that He is still on the Throne and He is involved in every detail of your life. He knew you before the foundations of the earth were formed, and He called you into existence in eternity past. He will hold you in the palm of His hand until the day He takes you home to be with HIM in the future.

We are creatures of time…created by God for eternity… Today we live from one God Moment to another…in eternity we will live IN THE MOMENT… forever with God. May HIS Joy and HIS Shalom fill all the days of your life as you live to fulfill HIS purposes for your life.

My Daily Prayer:

“There is no me only Him. I have no will but to do His will only. I trust not in myself but in His Love and care for me.

I receive all things from His hand and am glad and rejoice in His mercies that are new every day I live here.

I am yours and you are mine….and yet I will wait upon you….I will be still and listen…keep me humble…..guide me….uphold me…not my will but yours be done through me.”

EVEN SO …COME LORD JESUS.

Remember Him and HE Will HONOR YOU

Remember Him1

Genesis 2:7
Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.  Psalms 103:14 He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.

I for one have never even considered the view of Angels about anything. Yet you and I know they exist and they have witnessed it all. The Bible says they are anxious to look into the wonder of our Salvation, and that they rejoice in Heaven over the coming to faith of just one new believer.

When I think of the Holy Angels I am in AWE of such creatures that our GOD had created before us. Then I think of us. Earthen Vessels, so fragile, so weak, so confused not understanding the One Who MADE US. We have His very Words on the subject, we are accountable, we are without excuse to know HIM and the Plan that HIS-Story is bringing now to an End.

I am humbled by the realization of how we were created. This Scripture says it all… “What is man that you are mindful of him?”

We have 3 important responsibilities as we live our lives before the FACE of GOD. We must always REMEMBER HIM and HIS Mighty Works throughout HIS-Story. We are called to STAND ALONE for HIM among the Fragile Clay Pots that still do not know HIM, but continually MOCK HIM. And we are to SHARE Our Salvation Story, planting the seeds that will produce REPENTANCE in those we love, at the Foot of HIS CROSS.

The Birth of Our Savior JESUS, fulfilled the ancient mystery of the coming Redeemer spoken of throughout the Old Testament Messianic Prophecies.  Jesus took on Flesh, and Manna became Man as HE walked onto the pages of human history and took his place within the ancient story, the place of the Anointed One, the Christ, the Messiah, The SON of GOD.

The Messiah has come. He came as a Lamb to be slain for YOU.  Soon He will come again for those of us who look for His Coming. This time He comes as the Lion of Tribe of Judah…our conquering King, to take back what belongs to HIM ALONE, the City of GOD, JERUSALEM and HIS…planet Earth and ALL the Children HIS FATHER promised HIM from Eternity Past.

Our lives are filled with distractions and we tend to get wrapped up in our world and all its stuff. We forget about Gods greatest gift to us. The wise men sought out “He who has been born King of the Jews”. They came to bow the knee to the Holy One of Israel and the world. They came because centuries before a man called Daniel honored His GOD within a pagan society and planted seeds that the Holy Spirit watered and Pagans became BELIEVERS.

I hope all of you take the time to be still and listen and know that JESUS is Emmanuel. JESUS IS GOD. The ONE who WAS, and IS, and IS TOO COME. We are a people called to remember both His Birth and His Cross. One event could not happen without the other. The two events together guarantee the third event…His Return and Reign as the KING of ETERNITY.

Blessed are those who are invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

“Then I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth…And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Revelation 21:1, 3-5.

We were all made for One Person and One Place. Jesus is the Person. Heaven is the Place.

There is a statement by Jesus from a scene recorded in Revelation 3 vs 5. Jesus said that HE will confess your name before His FATHER and before His Angels. Can you imagine that? Jesus will come for you and take you by the hand and lead you between columns of myriads of holy angels.

Up, the stairs of light, continuing up amongst the cheering of the great cloud of witnesses of those that have gone before you throughout the ages: up to stand before the very throne of Almighty GOD. Then Jesus will say to HIS Father, I want you to meet one of mine…One who was not ashamed of MY NAME.

If you have not accepted JESUS as your SAVIOR and LORD, then you have no time to waste. Please take HIS outstretched hand and let Him take you home while you live.

“For the hour is coming when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God…and those who hear will live.” If you are not saved you will not be able to hear HIS VOICE. All you will hear for Eternity will be the Sound of Silence.

In the Beginning

WordPsalm 102:25

“In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.”

The very first sentence of the Bible is very precious to me. In my early quest to know God I listened to many Pastors, Teachers, Family Members, Friends, Co-Workers. All had a view based on their own experiences.

But experiences and opinions have nothing to do with who God IS. God has revealed HIMSELF to us only within His recorded words contained in the Holy Bible. I appreciated the input of many, but have come to respect and trust only the pure Word of God.

In the beginning of my journey I heard the word Apologetics. I thought why would there be a category based on apologizing for the word of God. I was ignorant and immature in the Faith. Later I understood that the word Apologetics meant the study of how to defend your faith in an ever-increasing hostile environment.

As a Believer I have found my greatest passion is to learn how to defend my faith. The more I have studied, the more I have tested my faith in battle the more I have understood beyond any doubt… that without the Judeo/Christian Bible we would have no Idea, and no Revelation of who God is. Man on his own could never know who God is. Instead God has chosen to reveal Himself in only ONE Book. This book is a gift kept pure throughout the centuries of mankind’s earthly journey. This book will remain as a witness to the love, compassion, mercy and grace of our God for the coming epochs of eternity to the redeemed of all ages.
Also, every UN-Saved person will be condemned by the same book to an eternity without the Love of God as they stand before HIM in silence.

The Bible is the Autobiography of God in which He has revealed both Himself, humanities ultimate death sentence, His chosen Messiah / Redeemer / Savior, and the detailed history of mankind’s past, present and future. As I have said before, you are part of the Bibles Pre-written History; because you are part of mankind.

The question is whether you will be part of the continuing history of the Son of God. For the history of man is coming to a close. But the history of the Son of God is just beginning. All history is …HIS story and YOU are written on its pages for better or for worse.

The Bibles beginning account of Creation is as much historical fact as are the accounts of the people, places and events recorded in it. The Bible is unique in that it is the only book of its kind that uses pre-recorded history (prophecy), to substantiate that it is written by God through the inspiration of both the Jewish Prophets and Jewish Apostles.

Today we live by faith rather than by sight. It’s difficult for most of us to do this. But God has given us a mind to think and reason with. It is my hope and prayer that you will be able to engage your mind and think thru the defendable prophetic and historical facts of Scripture.

When you do this, you will understand that:

Faith is trust based on evidence…We choose to believe.

GOD BECAME A MAN …so HE could rescue “Some of us” that Believe.

No one has been left out of His invitation to come to Him…not even you.

The Bible IS the autobiography of God.

Yeshua / Jesus when He died on the Cross said “It is Finished”…but it is by NO Means the end of the story!

The “Greatest Story Ever Told” is about New Beginnings, a new Creation, a new Universe, a new Earth that will join with Heaven…and a new You.

Salvation is not about mans religion, but about a Personal Relationship between you and the SON of GOD.

“God has planted eternity in the hearts of all men”…if you but seek HIM and understand you will gain the assurance of your Salvation.

God is collecting all of His tears and all of humanities tears in a bottle. In the end there will be a new beginning. For now God sheds tears over you. Soon when He comes again there will be no more tears.

The fire in Gods eyes will have evaporated all the tears HE has shed over wayward people throughout time and history.

God gave us all free will. Everyone will go to the place they have chosen…He will grant their wishes forever.

You cannot pick and choose what you want to believe from Gods word. If you do then I question your faith and the road you are on.

To all who never believed the foundational statement by God when He wrote “In the Beginning God”…then you must question every word after that statement.
As you begin to question you will find that you have spent your life building your house of faith on shifting sand and not the rock foundation of Faith in God and His literal Word to us. For you, His Mercy and Grace will be gone…as He comes back only in Judgment.

But if you know Him and have a personal relationship with Him, and believe in the complete council of God; then He comes to you in Song, with a smile in His heart that will light up your heart forever. “He who was seated on the throne said I am making everything new! Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

“Look to Me ALL you ends of the earth! For I AM God and there is no other”

Fear No man…but Fear God.

Tears of the FATHER at the CROSS of HIS SON

Good Friday, something to think about.
Excerpt from one of my Easter Church Messages called Tears of Two Fathers.

tears

My child God said to me. I wanted to tell you personally what the Crucifixion of My Son meant to me. You have children and grandchildren and I know you love them. I know that you would do all you could to protect them from harm and that you would gladly take upon yourself their death. I know this because you were created in my image with the ability to Love.

I know that if men took your child and beat him with whips that ripped both flesh and bone from his back…that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to carry a beam of heavy wood down the street as people swore at him, mocking him, and spitting on him… that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to lie down on that cross and then drove nails through his feet and hands to hold him there…that you could not be restrained. Could you Ernie? The Lord asked softly…no Lord I said quietly.

I stood and watched as they did all those things to my Son. I stood there not for His sake but for yours, because He took that punishment not for His sake but for yours….I honored you through His Pain. But Ernie, when Jesus…MY SON cried out …MY GOD…MY GOD…WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?

That was more than I could bear, so I turned away and cried uncontrollably. My Son had wept over Jerusalem; and now I wept over my Son. Yes, I could not look upon the Worlds Sins that MY Son was bearing, but even more than that, if I had looked at HIM at the moment HE said those words…I knew in my heart …That I could not be restrained!

Ernie…I wanted you and those that say they love my Son, to know that even for the Joy set before both HIM and I…the Cross was the most difficult thing either of us have gone through.”

Have YOU ever given any thought to the tears Jesus will wipe from your eyes? Why am I going to be crying before Him? Maybe because as hard as I tried while here on Earth encased in this broken vessel of clay, the motives of my heart have always been tinged with pride.

Maybe because in my own way I too have Mocked God by trying to blend into the sewage around me like a Chameleon instead of standing alone for HIM?

Maybe because I haven’t taken His command to share the Gospel serious enough and He will show me the hundreds of times I could have made a difference in someone’s life by planting a seed for the Holy Spirit to water.

I will stand before Him looking into His Eyes filled with Holy fire and use words to give an account of the life He gave me to live out before HIM. He will then show me the times He had given me words to speak in the power of the HOLY SPIRIT, but I chose to remain silent.

Your LIFE & My LIFE are ALL ABOUT JESUS…Not Us!
IN HIM I found me.
READ ISAIAH 53:1-11; (3- He was despised and rejected by men) (5- But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities) (10- Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him)

IT’s ALL ABOUT JESUS

1 J Journey

I BRING YOU GREETINGS FROM

El GIBBOR, (THE MIGHTY GOD),
THE RUACH HAKODESH, (THE HOLY SPIRIT),
And YESHUA HAMACHIACH, (JESUS THE CHRIST).

Phillip Yancey…in his book “The Jesus I never knew” describes Jobs Outburst at God. “You don’t know what it’s like out here!” Job was most brazen, flinging to God this accusation: “Do you have eyes of flesh? Do you see as a mortal sees?
Of the many reasons for The Incarnation, surely one was to answer Job’s accusation: Do you have eyes of flesh? …For a time, God did. God is not mute: the Word spoke, not out of a whirlwind, but out of the human larynx”….. of The SON of GOD, The Messiah of Israel, a Jew from Bethlehem.

There was an email that made the rounds several years ago, its become very special to me.

“A Jewish father was concerned about his son who was about a year away from his Bar Mitzvah but was sorely lacking in his knowledge of the Jewish faith. To remedy this he sent his son to Israel to experience his heritage. A year later the young man returned home.

“Father, thank you for sending me to the land of our Fathers,” the son said. “It was wonderful and enlightening, however, I must confess that while in Israel I converted to Christianity.”

“Oy vey,” replied the father, “what have I done.” So in the tradition of the patriarchs, he went to his best friend and sought his advice and solace. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated his friend. “I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian.”

So in the tradition of the patriarchs, they went to the Rabbi. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated the Rabbi, “I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian. What is happening to our sons? Brothers, we must take this to the Lord,” said the Rabbi.

They fell to their knees and began to wail and pour out their hearts to the Almighty. As they prayed the clouds above opened and a Mighty Voice stated…“Amazing that you should come to ME. I, too, sent My Son to Israel”.

WHEN JESUS WALKED THIS EARTH PEOPLE CALLED HIM BY HIS HEBREW NAME… YESHUA.
Jesus was a rabbi; He was a carpenter. He knew what it meant to tend sheep, catch fish, and live in the shadow of the kings and empires of this world. He wore tassels on the hem of His tunic, attended weddings, experienced life in the everyday household of a Galilean community, and sat in Moses’ seat in the Synagogue.

He was born into a race of people chosen by God to bear His name to the world; a people who had made a covenant with God and broken it. Jesus lived like a Jew, talked like a Jew, acted like a Jew, and worshiped like a Jew. He was a Jew from Nazareth. His words, actions, and teaching methods were in keeping with the customs, traditions and religion of the Semitic culture into which He was born.

HE IS THE WORLDS OLDEST LIVING JEW, BECAUSE HE IS STILL ALIVE!
