JER CH 31, A Study I Did That Spoke To Me, Maybe It Will Speak To You


Jer 31:21 Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.

Jer 31:22 How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.

I was given this verse about a year ago, I and my wife want to go back to Rhode Island, Mass, N.E. but esp her home Rhode Island, I have always had a call and burden for R.I. and New England, that is where it all started and I still desire to minister in N.E. In the verse , set thine heart towards the highway, we honestly felt the lord was saying , it is time to go back, back from where you came. A year later we are still in this small desolate town., so be it, in the lords timing if ever, all I want is the lords perfect will.

JFB;

Jeremiah 31:22

go about — namely, after human helps (Jer_2:18, Jer_2:23, Jer_2:36). Why not return immediately to me? Maurer translates, as in Son_5:6, “How long wilt thou withdraw thyself?” Let thy past backslidings suffice thee now that a new era approaches. What God finds fault with in them is, that they looked hither and thither, leaning on contingencies, instead of at once trusting the word of God,

As I thought, the lord is saying look to me not man, No one, The word, it's truth, it's promises. This Chapter says the people would have water in the desert a great concern about our location, but God provides.

How long wilt thou withdraw thyself?”

Very convicting, how long will I withdraw myself from 100% reliance on the lord and His word. God is my Father and my father knows what I need before I ask, and will provide all and in abundance.

Jer 31:4 Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built,....

The Lord when He is ready will indeed rebuild us and restore us fully in his time.

Jer 31:9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.


Clarke;

They shall come with weeping - Duly penetrated with a sense of their sins, they shall deeply deplore them; and, while weeping for them, earnestly supplicate God to have mercy upon them.
By the rivers of waters - I will so guide and provide for them in the arid deserts, that they shall find streams of water whenever necessary. Every one knows of how much consequence water is to travelers in the eastern deserts.


I will so guide and provide for them in the arid deserts, that they shall find streams of water whenever necessary

Again the promise of water, so now I need not fear, as the lord did it in the Exodus he will do it again, when needed and when it is time to do so.

Jer 31:16 Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.

Jer 31:17 And there is hope in thine end

These verse gave me great comfort after today and the last 3.5 years. My work for Christ will be rewarded one day, amen, also I am not not weep, cry, be depressed, why I have the word on it, The lord will provide, reward, deliver from spiritual foes and the fall of the U.S.A. God still delivers.There will be hope in my end. Jer says for my plans are not plans to harm you, but to give you hope and a future. What great promises.I wonder sometime if I and my ministry are making an impact for the kingdom of God, sometimes we will never know on this side of life, but in glory, we will all be amazed at what we did and did not know it, how many were touched and many saved from the ministry efforts and obedience to Christ.Many will say, it was because of your humble ministry you told me about Jesus and now I am hear in heaven, thank-you.

This study really spoke volumes to me personally, and maybe some of you reading it.

Restoration, provision, direction, mercy, forgiveness, blessing, water, hope in the end, good plans for the future, and no weeping at this time, there is a time to weep, but the lord says not now, I am in control, men have let you down, do not weep, I will never let you down.

I had a huge let down today, I came home and just wept saying how much more lord, The lord says in this study, fault one, you are looking to man not me, God works through people, this I have come to know over the years. I had a fresh lesson today on this. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a thing accomplished is sweet to the soul. I was crushed, I needed a touch from God, a word and this was it, may it be so for you also dear reader if a person let you down, look to God. In this life you may never be provided with your Boaz, but you are provided with the word and the lords presence.

Jer 31:18 I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God.

Jer 31:19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.

Many of my troubles were self made by bad decisions, sin and being out of Gods perfect will, and so comes chastisement, God chastises those he loves, those that are truly his.

After Chastisements we partake in the lords holiness and continue on the life long road of sanctification and fruit bearing. In verse 19, after repentance, instruction, true instruction of the lord and not my mind.I was ashamed over many things I did in my youth and as a young minister, I was confounded, no more, Repentance brings renewal and this brings Holy instruction straight from God. The word says God will instruct us with his own eye, he will lead us, guide us, teach us, open doors. One must repent first, it never works the other way around. Plans, things, Ideas may all seem good, but when the instruction and plans are God given they always will have success.

When we repent and are instructed this passage also means, we will be feeling shamed, as now the revelation of how much of a sinner we are is discovered, sometimes we say after the instruction, Oh no!, did I really do that, say that, or think that way. The instruction of the lord will come.

We ask the Holy Spirit to show us our short comings and sins, be warned, He will and sometimes it is not pretty, we will be in anguish over a lack of faith, prayerlessness, not relying totally on the lord, this is self examination, and we are to do this daily as we die daily, we die a thousands deaths to self and each day is made new with promises, loving kindness, blessing and the lords Love.

Cocking On The Bread Pt 2 About Taking Communion In The Wrong Way, It Is Not Fast Food

1Co 11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord
Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

1Co 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body,
which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

1Co 11:25After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup
is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
1Co 11:26For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death
till he come.

1Co 11:27Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord,
unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

1Co 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

1Co 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to
himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
1Co 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

1Co 11:32 But, when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be
condemned with the world.

This is one of the most serious and profound posts and messages God has given me to date,
it is urgent and please read it all.
 In My travels as an Evangelist and a asst Pastor SR Pastor, and attending many, many churches,
I noticed something extreme is happening and many are not even aware of it.
First I noticed in every church I have been in ,aside from a very few ,in the past 20 years are taking
communion is a fast and legalistic manner.I also noticed many are sick, weak, and are even now dead.I thought, well, the additives in our food, GMO foods, water impurities,  smog,and junk food,
  do not help, smoking, drinking, over eating, so I Just assumed it was the cause of all the sickness, illness and death I have heard of, and seen.


God spoke to me with his mighty hand on me and clarified what a Major problem this is and why
so many are weak and sick in our Churches, I never would have thought of this Communion issue,
as most communion services are the first Sunday of the month, it is done at the end of  the service,
and it is done in a fast manner, God said this is the problem.............

'The Christan is to properly discern the body, of Christ, separate normal food from the elements.
We are to take time to examine our hearts, reflect, repent and it can not be done in a fast food manner.'  We can not say, would you like some fries with that LOL.

The title is due to this, I was taking communion in a Church and It was being done so fast,  by the
time we were to drink the juice I literally chocked on the unleavened bread cracker,  it can be sharp
and takes a while to dissolve, and so it should be.I think back on what a communion service used to be in the churches I attended years ago.


The whole service was surrounded around the communion theme, from a convicting sermon and a time of worship and reflection.One great service I attended at S.Attleboro Assemble of God,in the 80's (to date still one of the best communion services I ever attended.)


After the sermon, the elements were handed out, We held the elements and sang a good 30 min.
than slowly we took the bread, everyone was in quite repentance and self examination,
  the juice was not taken till another good 10 min. latter, as to give everyone the time to reflect on the broken body of Christ and just what it meant.


Needless to say back than I never chocked on the bread. We sang more and rejoiced for the body broken for us, people were kneeling all over, and after 10 min or so, we took the juice and again reflected for a good while and we ended  with a hymn and praise.Beloved, this is what Paul is
  talking about and the Church is guilty of, taking the body of Christ in an unworthy manner,and hence, many are weak and sick due to this, Paul said it, not me.Oh, how we need to return
  to this proper mode of communion, how we need to   take time with each element and judge ourselves, so we can receive healing.  If taken properly, you can be healed during proper
  communion.Our fast paced, rituals have left us in a state of spiritual starvation,
legalism, illness and death , we must return to the way it was, slow down, discern what you are
taking, meditate, judge yourself, that you will not be judged, and the result, more healing, less weakness,  illness and death will not take place, before it's time.
We all need to repent and take the communion service more serious, to not discern the Lords body and chocking on the bread must change. May it start in your church today.


Note; We are to die daily, examine ourselves daily, see if we are in the Faith, pray and not just on communion service once a month, once that is restored, it is a daily death and resurrection we need and there are no short cuts.


The next time you take Communion in Church, see if what the Lord is saying is correct, are you chocking on the bread or are you walking in healing, restored and living in victory. God says, start now and you will see many healed, continue on in fast food communion and continue to become weak, Ill and even a early death.

Barnes Commentary says it all.

1 Corinthians 11:28
But let a man examine himself - Let him search and see if he have the proper
qualifications - if he has knowledge to discern the Lord’s body (note, 1Co_11:29); if he has true repentance for his sins; true faith in the Lord Jesus; and a sincere desire to live the life of a Christian, and to be like the Son of God, and be saved by the merits of his blood.
 Let him examine himself, and see whether he have the right feelings of a communicant,
  and can approach the table in a proper manner. In regard to this we may observe:


(1) That this examination should include the great question about his personal piety, and about his particular and special fitness for this observance. It should go back into the great inquiry whether
he has ever been born again; and it should also have special reference to his immediate
  and direct preparation for the ordinance. He should not only be able to say in general that he is a
Christian, but he should be able to say that he has then a particular preparation for it. He should be in a suitable frame of mind for it. He should have personal evidence that he is a
penitent; that he has true faith in the Lord Jesus; that he is depending on him, and is desirous of being saved by him.


(2) this examination should be minute and particular. It should extend to the words, the thoughts, the feelings, the conduct. We should inquire whether in our family and in our business; whether among Christians, and with the world, we have lived the life of a Christian. We should examine our private thoughts; our habits of secret prayer and of searching the Scriptures. Our examination should be directed to the inquiry whether we are gaining the victory over our easily besetting sins and becoming more and more conformed to the Savior. It should, in short, extend to all our Christian character; and everything which goes to make up or to mar that character should be the subject of faithful and honest examination.




(3) it should be done because:(a) It is well to pause occasionally in life, and take an account of our standing in the sight of God. People make advances in business and in property only when they
often examine their accounts, and know just how they stand,(b) Because the observance
  of the Lord’s Supper is a solemn act, and there will be fearful results if it is celebrated in an improper manner.

 
(e) Because the approach to the table of the Lord is a solemn approach to the Lord himself; is a solemn profession of attachment to him; is an act of consecration to his service in the presence of angels and of people; and this should be done in a calm, deliberate and sincere manner; such a manner as may be the result of a prayerful and honest self-examination.
And so let him eat ... - And as the result of such examination, or after such an examination;
that is, let the act of eating that bread always be preceded by a solemn self-examination.
Bloomfield renders it, “and then, only then.” The sense is plain, that the communion should always be preceded by an honest and prayerful self-examination.

Please NOTE: I once had a person email me and say I was talking about, over worshiping the communion service, making to much of it, let me be clear, Communion, like water baptism are symbols. Communion is a symbol and not the actual blood and body of Christ, it is not magical.My message is one of repentance, holiness, self examination. These are missing now days. Communion has always been throughout Church history a time of reflection, self examination and weeping, repenting. I am telling you, that is why the People were getting sick and dying an early death, not because they took wine and bread fast, because they did not examine their hearts and took this institution Jesus told us to do until He comes back in a lite and meaningless way, it was just like the 3erd course of a 3 course meal, they did not separate the food from the elements in spirit, they did not stop, repent, examine their hearts, just a swallow and a gulp, and this is what many communion services have become. Fast food legalism, the lord is not pleased with this.








This Is One Of The Most Serious Posts To Date, It will make Some Mad,And It Is not Popular, but The Truth Must Be Told

This post exposes the T.V. ministers teaching false doctrine, T.V. star and founder of a million member new age church .

Oprah Winfrey. Joel Osteen denies Jesus is the only way to heaven and teaches a false prosperity gospel,

also a positive Norman Vincent Peal Gospel, a feel good, lite gospel.I am shocked and amazed at how many people
still watch this wolf in sheep's clothing?

  Others have said the same, even Billy Graham, hard to believe but you will
see the video evidence for yourself. Another T.V. prosperity preacher Jesse Dupalntis talks about Homosexuality,

the president of the USA denies Jesus, Two Pastors arrested outside of the while house for the crime of praying in Jesus name, while Muslim prayers were going on in the white house.

Ps 3:11 says if the foundations be Shaken what can the righteous do.


The word foundations means political and Religion. The foundations have been destroyed by both.
This is not a tabloid news post, I felt grieved as the Spirit grieved in me over these things. This is why Judgment
begins in the house of God, than the nation that once claimed to be a christian nation.

I have had some well meaning people tell me in the N.T. no Christian is to call out anyone by name.
  This is 100% false. Lets see what the word says about this calling out a person, a doctrine by name.



2Ti 4:10  For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

2 Ti 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his  works:
2Ti 4:15  Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.


2Ti 3:8  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

2Ti 3:9  But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

2Ti 2:16  But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

2Ti 2:17  And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;

2Ti 2:18  Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.


1Ti 1:20  Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.


Lets see what Jesus said concerning false doctrines by name and a women by name.

Rev 2:2  I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:


Rev 2:6  But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

Rev 2:9  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Rev 2:14  But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Rev 2:15  So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

Rev 2:16  Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.


Rev 2:20  Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols

Rev 2:21  And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Rev 2:22  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

Rev 2:23  And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Note : This is the only Women in all the N.T. Churches that was given the OK to teach and have authority over men and see the results. I am not a women hater, just an interesting Fact.


 
It is a truth. The Bible calls out people by name and false doctrines, and thus it is scriptural. As A minister It is my Job to expose such things and care for the flock that no wolfs enter in and teach sound doctrine. Many times I want to write concerning Good, things. Jude felt the same, but he had to speak the truth as The Gnostic
teachings were gaining ground, and note he mentions the doctrine by name. The same as when I warn against
The Neo-Charismatics, Manifest sons of God, founder Peter C.Wagner, prosperity teachers on T.V It is my job to preach and teach sound doctrine as one day at the judgment seat I must give an account of what I preached and said, just like you, teachers, ministers fall under the greater Judgment due to the call. If your a minister, Pastor, Evangelist, Elder,Deacon, Sunday school teacher you must preach sound doctrine as you will give an account on that day before Christ.

For the most part I try and speak against false doctrine and not so much the individual, but as I watched these videos I let the videos speak for themselves, the false words expose the people themselves, I need say nothing, but watch and listen for yourself and see.

Jud 1:3  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.



Jud 1:4  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

We were warned by Jesus of these false doctrines, preachers, prophets, we were told in advance, so why be surprised we are in the last leg of History and Paul said in the last days....

1Ti 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

1Ti 4:2  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

1Ti 4:3  Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1Ti 4:4  For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

This was speaking of the coming Catholic church, no other religion to date fills it to the tee.
Due to unity at any cost, many feel Catholics are a Christian religion, they are not, They are a Pagan religion. The Constitution ad by Laws of The Assemblies Of God, say concerning the women that sits on the beast in Revelations with the waters under her feet is in their own constitution, The Roman Catholic Church. They may have changed this, many denominations have, I hope not.




2Ti 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2Ti 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to
parents, unthankful, unholy,

2Ti 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2Ti 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;



2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.


We are to turn away from these ones, not tune in to their T.V. shows and websites, we are to be separate and Holy, this will not make me any friends, I do not care if you hate me, I am doing what the lord has commanded of me.

2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

2Ti 3:13  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.





. 2Ti 3:14  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

If you dare speak truth and live a Godly life you WILL face persecution. Most do not want anything to do with being persecuted, being told they are out dated, the bible was for the old days not today, this is Post Modernism. I have posted on this. Few will take up their cross and follow Jesus, why? it is a rugged cross not a BMW.

perilous times, Note; what Paul included in his list of things that are perilous, not just sin, coldness, wild living, but....that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; also he said, deceiving, and being deceived.

Deception
, false doctrine so bad it is it is doctrines of Devils departing from THE FAITH.
The faith in the Greek hear means, The Faith, The true Gospel.


Sobering and true words, dear reader may you heed this message today, now I will post a few videos that expose such people and false doctrine and you judge for yourself, you work out your own salvation with fear and trembling as do I. I am but a watchmen on the wall. I am sounding the alarm, do you hear it?

There are so many ministers and Christians that are pleasers of man and not God. We are not to please men with a lite, shallow gospel that does not expose error, or teach on Hell, repentance and the truth given in mercy. Many ministers I have seen seem to be wanting the people to like them, they have their reward.



Dear saint of God, you have just read what the bible has to say, now compare these verses with what you will hear in the videos, you will find it is 100% different from the Holy Word of God.





OK Are You Ready? Are you ready to hear all I have said right from the peoples mouths?



























You Heard it from these peoples own mouths. A USA President, a billionaire T.V. person and founder of a multi-million new age church, T.V. Preachers. I know some of you reading and watching this will be offended , because some of you watch some of these people a lot, sorry it is what it is and A man of God must call them out, show the evidence and most of all what the bible demands of us as Christians and ministers, now its up to you, do what you want.

I have a challenge for you dear reader, now that you have heard what the holy word of God says, what I have said, what these false teachers have said, my challenge, watch this last video and let true men of God tell you the same thing. The video many have seen, watch it again and compare. Watch this last video over and over and let it sink in. WAKE UP CHURCH.








Joh 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

Part of Speech: verb


The Hebrew says it all.

John Wesley;

Hosea 4:6
Destroyed - Many were already cut off by Pul king of Assyria, and many destroyed by the bloody tyranny of Menahem. Of knowledge - Of God, his law, his providence, his holy nature, his hatred of sin and power to punish it. Because thou - The prophet now turns from the people to the priests, to whom he speaks as to one person. Rejected knowledge - Art and wilt be ignorant. Seeing thou - O Israel, and you O priests, you have broken all the precepts of it. Thy children - The people of Israel, the whole kingdom of the ten tribes.

Wesley says it correct, a lack of Knowledge is as he said,

Of God, His Providence, His Holy Nature, His hatred of sin and power to punish it.

This study is important , because many feel a lack of knowledge is just they do not know the word that well, can not quote it, and do not know what a lot of the word means.

This is more than mere head knowledge, The word teaches us the lords Character, we get to learn how the lord sees things and how he deals with humanity. If you want to know about what the lord is like, all one must do is read His word.

Man says , the lord will not frown on my sin, I am only human, this is taking the grace of God in vain and using mercy as an occasion to sin, find loop holes, this does not hold water. Preachers no longer preach on hell, heaven, holiness, judgment, punishment, it is gospel lite, and so men want it that way. Most do not want to hear about the lords true nature, nothing about a real hell, a real Devil, a penalty for sin, few want to hear anything that will challenge their walk, they want it all smooth, mellow and lite.Many do not even believe in a literally hell anymore. Jesus taught on hell all over the N.T. It is real, and the penalty for continued sin is real.

Be ye Holy for I am Holy, it is not an option, conviction of sin is a fact. Men reject these hard sayings because they can not handle them.We must understand the lord hates sin and has power to punish it. This willful neglect of the truth of the bible is leading many to hell, as we see the great falling away before our eyes.

Adam Clark says;

Hosea 4:6

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge - They have not the knowledge of God, nor of sacred things, nor of their own interest, nor of the danger to which they are exposed. They walk on blindly, and perish.


People are exposed to danger due to willful rejection of the whole word of God. We are in N.T. covenant grace, God loves His children, but do not forget in Acts the death of Ananias and Sapphira, they were killed on the spot.
The word also tells us behold the goodness and severity of God. We can not come to the lord on our terms, or think we are different and the rules do not apply to us, we are a special case, with special problems. The lord is a respecter of no person, there is no totem poll in the Kingdom of God, we are all on level ground, the greatest shall be the least and the least the greatest, and he who is a leader, a man that thinks he is the greatest is to be the servant of all, and that puts us last.

This is a hard word, I have posted some good encouraging words of late, but I must teach and preach the whole counsel of God, it is Goodness and it is severity, we can not escape this bible fact, God hates sins.

In Revelations we hear our Lord say to the churches of Asia minor, Rev 2:6  But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
  and so, not to hate what our lord hates is a sin.
Love the sinner, hate the sin, yes and amen, but a sin must be dealt with, the holy spirit convicts us when we sin and we repent. In the text I used Hosea was talking to the spiritual leaders for the most part, and he told them you should know better, yet you refuse to obey, you refuse to heed what you know is right and people who follow such leaders will fall in their own peril, so be watchful, unto prayer and be sensitive about the lords ways and reject mans ways, our Lord changes not, he has never moved, many of us at times have relocated, ran, only to find the lord in the place we fled to and the conviction of the holy spirit awaiting our arrival. Christ is in us, the spirit is in us, where can we flee as King David said, Indeed we can not hide, we can block out the conviction, the truth of the word, but this changes nothing.


Hos 4:7  As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
When we have a lack of the Knowledge of the lords ways, character and what he wants for us, we will become ICOBAD, my glory hath departed. This verses says The one who rejects bible truth, kicking against the pricks like Paul did on the road to Damascus, will have our Glory,Gods glory we should have, changed into shame.

What might have been. This is the banner of so many Christians that once had a relationship with the lord. Dear reader do not be one of those who looks back in agony and regret and say what might have been, if I had only listened, obeyed great things could have happened, but like King Saul, all many can say is what might have been. get it right on this side of Glory, because when you die it will be to late.

Abundance, Need, Content, The Blood, Divine Protection And Blessing

Joh 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Adam Clark;

John 10:10

But for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy - Those who enter into the priesthood that they may enjoy the revenues of the Church, are the basest and vilest of thieves and murderers. Their ungodly conduct is a snare to the simple, and the occasion of much scandal to the cause of Christ. Their doctrine is deadly; they are not commissioned by Christ, and therefore they cannot profit the people. Their character is well pointed out by the Prophet Ezekiel, Eze_34:2, etc. Wo be to the shepherds of Israel, that do feed themselves! Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool; ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock, etc, How can worldly-minded, hireling, fox-hunting, and card-playing priests read these words of the Lord, without trembling to the center of their souls! Wo to those parents who bring up their children merely for Church honors and emoluments! Suppose a person have all the Church’s revenues, if he have God’s wo, how miserable is his portion! Let none apply this censure to any one class of preachers, exclusively.


Eze 34:2  Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?


Albert Barnes;

Might have it more abundantly - Literally, that they may have abundance, or that which abounds. The word denotes that which is not absolutely essential to life, but which is superadded to make life happy. They shall not merely have life - simple, bare existence - but they shall have all those superadded things which are needful to make that life eminently blessed and happy. It would be vast mercy to keep men merely from annihilation or hell; but Jesus will give them eternal joy, peace, the society of the blessed, and all those exalted means of felicity which are prepared for them in the world of glory.

Vincents word study

John 10:10

The thief (ὁ κλέπτης)
Christ puts Himself in contrast with the meaner criminal.
I am come (ἦλθον)
More correctly, I came. I am come would be the perfect tense.
More abundantly (περισσὸν)
Literally, may have abundance.

Rodgers word pitchers says;

John 10:10

But that he may steal, and kill, and destroy (ei mē hina klepsēi kai thusēi kai apolesēi). Literally, “except that” (ei mē) common without (Mat_12:4) and with verb (Gal_1:7), “if not” (literally), followed here by final hina and three aorist active subjunctives as sometimes by hotan (Mar_9:9) or hoti (2Co_12:13). Note the order of the verbs. Stealing is the purpose of the thief, but he will kill and destroy if necessary just like the modern bandit or gangster.

I came that they may have life (egō ēlthon hina zōēn echōsin). In sharp contrast (egō) as the good shepherd with the thieves and robbers of Joh_10:1 came Jesus. Note present active subjunctive (echōsin), “that they (people) may keep on having life (eternal, he means)” as he shows in Joh_10:28. He is “the life” (Joh_14:6).

And may have it abundantly (kai perisson echōsin). Repetition of echōsin (may keep on having) abundance (perisson, neuter singular of perissos). Xenophon (Anab. VII. vi. 31) uses perisson echein, “to have a surplus,” true to the meaning of overflow from peri (around) seen in Paul’s picture of the overplus (hupereperisseusen in Rom_5:20) of grace. Abundance of life and all that sustains life, Jesus gives.

John Wesley;

John 10:10
The thief cometh not but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy - That is, nothing else can be the consequence of a shepherd's coming, who does not enter in by me.

Lastly, Matt Henry;

[a.] Christ knows his sheep. He knows with a distinguishing eye who are his sheep, and who are not; he knows the sheep under their many infirmities, and the goats under their most plausible disguises. He knows with a favourable eye those that in truth are his own sheep; he takes cognizance of their state, concerns himself for them, has a tender and affectionate regard to them, and is continually mindful of them in the intercession he ever lives to make within the veil; he visits them graciously by his Spirit, and has communion with them; he knows them, that is, he approves and accepts of them, as Psa_1:6; Psa_37:18; Exo_33:17.


This post will sound to good to be true dear reader, also it will sound like a word of Faith teaching, IT IS NOT. We should use the whole gospel Diamond, for the many facets on a diamond as I have said, if kept in check and balance, as we avoid all ext-reams and pet doctrines we as true believers can and should look at the faith, blessing and abundance our lord says he has for those who are His. We read the lord knows those who are truly is, dear reader if you are truly one of HIS, may this word speak to your heart today.

We have a true adversary, the devil, he comes to do everything he can to destroy us, and that is his goal, many times by way of false doctrine, false ministers and the like. Jesus came for this reason, that he would destroy the works of the devil amen, that is shouting stuff.
We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and wickedness in high places. The false Pastors, teachers, ministries are also known by the Lord, he knows who his sheep are and He knows who the Goats are, amen, He will separate them, it is not our job, we are growing wheat among the tares, and so be it.

In the Greek the word destroy says a lot.

Destroy Greek:

G622
ἀπόλλυμι
apollumi
ap-ol'-loo-mee
From G575 and the base of G3639; to destroy fully (reflexively to perish, or lose), literally or figuratively: - destroy, die, lose, mar, perish.

The enemy wants the true saint of God to be destroyed FULLY, the ones who are His are under their shepherds care, the blood of Christ has settled the issue, we are kept by his power, and we have the Power of The Holy Spirit to give the needed force to over come in all things.

Revelations tells us, they overcame the devil by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.

This is why our testimony is always under assault, but it is covered, protected, by the Blood, the blood is power, our testimony sure. We have all at one time or another blown our testimony, but we can simply plead the blood of Christ, repent and go on, we are not destroyed, humbled, yes, but not destroyed. Let us begin again, let today be the first day of the rest of your life, do not give up, press forward.

The text says abundance and as the commentaries brought out it means that and more, the Greek says.

More Abundantly

G4053
περισσός
perissos
per-is-sos'
From G4012 (in the sense of beyond); superabundant (in quantity) or superior (in quality); by implication excessive; adverb (with G1537) violently; neuter (as noun) preeminence: - exceeding abundantly above, more abundantly, advantage, exceedingly, very highly, beyond measure, more, superfluous, vehement [-ly].


Super abundant in quantity and superior in quality, wow.

Jesus came that we would have life and have life more abundantly, we have many verses to back up this super abundance, this excellence in all things. It can be a one sided message, as it is in the prosperity camp, but the truth is, our Lord wants us to be happy, He wants to meet our needs and as one commentary said Barnes, even above our wants. I have a hard time with this and it is a shame. The prosperity false teachings have so distorted this truth I sometimes, neglect to claim it as it is in the word, make it a personal promise.

The days we live in, this current economic situation is bad and getting worse, no work, no buyers of goods, so how can we apply this to our current life when many of us,( me included) are hardly getting by?

It's all about balance, the man of God avoids all ext-reams, so now I will seem to contradict what I have said about abundance, but listen this is what Paul learned.

Php 4:11  Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

Php 4:12  I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

Php 4:13  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Paul learned the great mystery of being content, he had abundance at times and other times he had nothing, the word teaches us, Godliness with contentment is great gain. Paul said he was instructed concerning having all he needed and having nothing.We need the same instruction today and we need it now.

The word does not contradict, ECC ch 3 tells us to everything there is a season, and so one year may be prosperous and the next a economic collapse, this does not mean the word changes, we must learn to be content with such things as we have, for with food and clothing we are told by Jesus to be content.

If we can learn to be still and know that Jehovah is God, Still means quiet, confidence, To wait on the lord means the same, to wait in silence. This is not easy , so many die out loud, they have not learned to be silent while waiting, many have no idea how to be content with what they have.

What about the poor, those in Poverty, Jesus said we will always have the poor with us, so to be poor is OK, but what about this super abundance? what about the blessings?

I do not have the answer, all I know is when hard times come, we must learn to be content with Manna and water from a rock, we will be humbled after the fall, but we will not die in famine and we will not die of thirst, the word is clear on this. Those that are His, His sheep, will not the shepherd of His flock lead them beside still waters?  will he not provide a table in the very presence of his enemy's, yes amen and so be it, many will die, many will go hungry, many will despise the lord, but those that are his, while all this is going on will be like the Church Of Philadelphia.

Rev 3:7  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Rev 3:8  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Rev 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Rev 3:10  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Many that teach a pre- trib rapture say this is the rapture church, well my readers well know I have 100% proved this to be a false doctrine and the greatest deception of all time, we, those that are His, in the coming Judgment on America and the whole world, will be kept from it, we will be protected, how, I have no idea, but I know that I know, the Lord has a way. many will have a Boaz come into their life, those who are also His, to help the ones who do not have , and are truly His, and all will be one and all will be in the safe haven of Jehovah's presence, he is our high place, our secret place, our refuge from the coming storm.

It may be rice and beans for a while, but in this time what a glory will be in those that are His.

What can be compared to the Lords presence and blessing? nothing, not a thing,
It can not be purchased with silver and gold, it can not be stored in an underground bunker, it is provided by the blood of Christ, that is the sign on your door post as the angel of death passes over you, and you will be left standing.The blood of Christ is our all in all, it is what pleases our Father, and those who are Christs He shall not lose , not one, so dear reader no matter what you are in poor, poverty, or well off, be happy, be joyful, wait in silence and when the storm hits you will be the one left standing.

A Word For Those In Mourning, A Word OF Hope And Encouragement


Mat 5:4  Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 


GILL:


Matthew 5:4
Blessed are they that mourn,.... For sin, for their own sins; the sin of their nature, indwelling sin, which is always working in them, and is a continual grief of mind to them; the unbelief of their hearts, notwithstanding the many instances, declarations, promises, and discoveries of grace made unto them; their daily infirmities, and many sins of life, because they are committed against a God of love, grace, and mercy, grieve the Spirit, and dishonour the Gospel of Christ: who mourn also for the sins of others, for the sins of the world, the profaneness and wickedness that abound in it; and more especially for the sins of professors, by reason of which, the name of God, and ways of Christ, are evil spoken of: who likewise mourn under afflictions, spiritual ones, temptations, desertions, and declensions; temporal ones, their own, which they receive, either more immediately from the hand of God, or from men; such as they endure for the sake of Christ, and the profession of his Gospel; and who sympathize with others in their afflictions. These, how sorrowful and distressed soever they may appear, are blessed 


for they shall be comforted: here in this life, by the God of all comfort, by Christ the comforter; by the Spirit of God, whose work and office it is to comfort; by the Scriptures of truth, which are written for their consolation; by the promises of the Gospel, through which the heirs of promise have strong consolation; by the ordinances of it, which are breasts of consolation; and by the ministers of the word, who have a commission from the Lord to speak comfortably to them; and then are they comforted, when they have the discoveries of the love of God, manifestations of pardoning grace, through the blood of Christ, and enjoy the divine presence: and they shall be comforted hereafter; when freed from all the troubles of this life, they shall be blessed with uninterrupted communion with Father, Son, and Spirit, and with the happy society of angels and glorified saints. Isa_61:1 seems to be referred to, both in this, and in the preceding verse.


JFB: is even better and more correct than GILL on this verse JFB: says 


Matthew 5:4


Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted — This “mourning” must not be taken loosely for that feeling which is wrung from men under pressure of the ills of life, nor yet strictly for sorrow on account of committed sins. Evidently it is that entire feeling which the sense of our spiritual poverty begets; and so the second beatitude is but the complement of the first. The one is the intellectual, the other the emotional aspect of the same thing. It is poverty of spirit that says, “I am undone”; and it is the mourning which this causes that makes it break forth in the form of a lamentation - “Woe is me! for I am undone.” Hence this class are termed “mourners in Zion,” or, as we might express it, religious mourners, in sharp contrast with all other sorts (Isa_61:1-3; Isa_66:2). Religion, according to the Bible, is neither a set of intellectual convictions nor a bundle of emotional feelings, but a compound of both, the former giving birth to the latter. Thus closely do the first two beatitudes cohere. The mourners shall be “comforted.” Even now they get beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Sowing in tears, they reap even here in joy. Still, all present comfort, even the best, is partial, interrupted, short-lived. But the days of our mourning shall soon be ended, and then God shall wipe away all tears from our eyes. Then, in the fullest sense, shall the mourners be “comforted.”




Lets look at Mourn in the Greek:


G3996
πενθέω
pentheō
pen-theh'-o
From G3997; to grieve (the feeling or the act): - mourn, (be-) wail.




G3997
πένθος
penthos
pen'-thos
Strengthened from the alternate of G3958; grief: - mourning, sorrow.




G3958
πάσχω, πάθω, πένθω
paschō  pathō  penthō
pas'-kho, path'-o, pen'-tho
Apparently a primary verb (the third form used only in certain tenses for it); to experience a sensation or impression (usually painful): - feel, passion, suffer, vex.




Note: when you are doing a word study, look at all the words, the word you want to learn about came from, this is a word study in its fullest, also the exact usages and cross references to that usage, Many time People just take a Strong's and look up the number, that's great for a rough translation, but to know the depth of a word, just like in the English dictionary, you look at the first meaning, second and so forth, the first is always the first meaning, in Greek and Hebrew this may through you off , as a given words exact, correct meaning in the passage may be the last word used, so follow the codes, numbers and use a Vincents, Rodgers word pitchers, or a vines.


Example Lets see what Vincents has to say, and you will see what I mean.


Vincents word studies:


Matthew 5:4


They that mourn (πενθοῦντες)
Signifying grief manifested; too deep for concealment. Hence it is often joined with κλαίειν, to weep audibly (Mar_16:10; Jam_4:9).


Shall be comforted
See on Joh_14:16.

The best free bible software in the world, get every add on , every help, every commentary, the anti Nicene Fathers, so, so much. The program has just been updated and now the features are unreal.


So are you in mourning right now, are you burdened over an issue, a sin, problems, burdened over what you see coming and what is hear? Do you see the lord high and lifted up, and now see yourself as you are low and destitute, filthy rags cladded in the clock of a broken smile.


I know some reader is being spoken to, I have a word , this is it.


You are searcing, and searching, looking hear, looking there, reading blogs, watching christian T.V. maybe going from church to church, or church site to church site, denomination afer denomination, and nothing is taking your grief, your wounded heart and it's feelings away. 


To another, this is your word.


You have tried everything, several marragies, several jobs, you have moved all over, and feel grief, sorrow, you now sit and weep, you mourn, your older and feel your life has been filled with bad decisions, going back to your pet sins and saying, forget it, I am undone, I can not live it, even N.T. Grace, I can not live what the bible says, and so I will just repent and wait to die.


To another , This is your word.


You have lost all you own, now you feel at time so much pressure you think your loseing your mind, you are in a hopeless place and are thinking the only way out is suicide.You are to afraid to do it, you do not want to go to hell, your to afraid to end it and that only makes you feel less, more weak. You are perplexed, at the end of your rope, you see no way out.


Now hear is the word to all that were spoken to, it is simple, yet profound, in this text verse the second half is your promise, the promise of Comfort.


This promise of Comfort is yours today, you may not feel it  at this second, but as the saying goes, it may feel like Friday, but Sunday is on the way. Hang on to the Lords word and this promise. No matter what you have done in the past, the lord is your comforter, He sent His Spirit to be your comfort, guide, teacher. All you need to do, is honestly examine yourself, repent and claim by faith the finished workon the cross, maybe you also need to seek the filling of His spirit or a renewal of His Holy Spirit, in all it's power, might, glory, help, comfort, peace, and love.


We have all said , " how could a loving God allow all this to happen to me, How',
Becuase He loves you, Love is always the main reason. Chastisment is out of a heart of love, Godly sorrow worketh repentance, it may all hurt now, but help and comfort are only one pray away. You will have a peace that will surpass all your understanding, it will be unexplainable, nothing, your problems  may not change, but your heart and thinking can, far above what you can ask or think, all this is the love of our Lord.


The lord is not mad at you, he is perfecting you, the trials are needed for the days ahead, and to be more Christ like and fruitful in this life.When Jesus said the following words He was not waisting His breath, so in closing read these well known verses and stand on them, until you get your breakthrough, rememeber, no one can live up to all the word teaches, no one, this is the work of the Holky Spirit to work in you the perfect will of God.


Mat 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Mat 11:29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 


Mat 11:30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 


Come, Take, learn, and you will recieve amen, may it be so in your life today.


Update, re post, please read.


WOW, Note: As It seems to be almost every time I do a simple, humble post, It was 100% confirmed by way of David Wilkerson's Devotional, I JUST READ , after I posted what I felt was a word form the lord, all I can say, is this is telling me, this is indeed a word, that some will need to read. I know some will think, this minister says this a lot, how do I know what he is saying is true, well let God be true and all men a liar, I lie not, and God forbid, I would even think of doing such a thing, and why? I would be dealt with in severity, also why to build more readers, This blog is growing so fast, I am not trying to get new readers, so many are coming from all over the world to the lords Glory, I am just the message boy, amen, and a humble bond servant, it just amazes me when after I do a post and read words from a man who is with the lord, how can it be words from the grave in a way, still can speak at an exact time about a exact word and confirm a word, this is just what the word of God does, all It's Books are penned by the Holy Spirit through Apostles,and men of the lord who are now in glory, so we have the same Holy Spirit, Jesus indeed is the same yesterday, today and forever, all of this builds my faith, I honestly did not feel like posting today, And I just obeyed, heard the word and posted, thinking who cares?, who will read it and get something out of it, well this is a word for me and you , me for my unbelief and the reader to show the last verses the of the devotional are the exact verses the lord gave me at the end of my post, so amen, PTL and may it give a double confirmation, now I know for a fact, the word of the lord does not return void and everything, every word, sermon, is appointed , and is not by chance you are reading this. Hear is what I read after I posted this, and now I am adding it and re posting so you can once again see.

I WILL GIVE YOU REST

by David Wilkerson

[May 19, 1931 - April 27, 2011]



God has promised His people a glorious rest, a rest that includes peace and

security for the soul. The Lord offered this wonderful rest to the children of

Israel, which meant a life full of joy and victory, without fear, guilt or

condemnation. Up to the time of Christ, no generation of believers ever walked

fully in this blessed promise. Why was this? The Bible makes very clear that it

was because of their unbelief. “So we see that they could not enter in because

of unbelief" (Hebrews 3:19).



Because of their unbelief, God's people—during the period of the kings and

prophets through David’s generation—went through life full of misery,

doubt, fear and restlessness. In every generation the rest was promised but it

was refused—never appropriated, never understood.



That is why, when we read Hebrews 4, we find this glorious life of faith still

unclaimed: “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God” (verse

9). Yet we also read: "Since therefore it remains that some must enter it . .

." (verse 6). The Bible admonishes present-day believers with a warning:

"Therefore, since a promise remains of entering into His rest, let us fear lest

any of you should seem to have come short of it" (verse 1).



Thousands upon thousands of believers claim to be filled with the Spirit of

God, yet few have entered into this promised rest. Many are tossed about by

winds and waves of doctrines, restless and guilt-ridden, with no security in

Christ. Jesus said, “I will give you rest, for My yoke is easy and My burden

is light" (see Matthew 11:28-30).



My prayer is that today you will enter into the rest God has for you. Reach up

by faith and receive because it is His free gift! 



Amen and Amen, may I never doubt the lord again, may we all be ready in season and out of season, meaning, when you do not feel like it, when it seems an inconvenient time and the like, we must all be ready at any time to give to men the manna we have been given and the living water that has quenched our own thirst

Going Public In The Gifts Of The Spirit, And The Secret Of The Lord.

Dan 2:12  For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
Dan 2:13  And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.

Dan 2:14  Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:

Dan 2:15  He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.
Dan 2:16  Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.

Dan 2:17  Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:

Dan 2:18  That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

Dan 2:19  Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

Dan 2:20  Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

Dan 2:21  And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

Dan 2:22  He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

Dan 2:23  I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.

This is the first time Daniel interpreted a dream, His first time the secrets of the lord were in the open air, the court of the king, the first time he went public. Jesus first miracle was the turning of water to wine at the wedding feast, it was Jesus going public. So hear is Daniels first. There has to be a first step in the moving of the Gifts, one may feel they have the gift of prophecy, but have never said a public word. Mostly out of fear, what if I am wrong? what if this does not happen? what if I look like a fool, what if, what if, what if.

Look, we know in part and we prophesy in part. Until 2011 I never had one single word not fulfilled 100%, and I said it could be a first. I missed the 2011 Famine date, but did I? Look at the link for the extinction protocol, I just did, and to the right you will see topics, click on Famines and take a look, all I can say is wow, you see I know in part and prophecy in part, in 2011 great famines have swept the globe, read the link.

Also, as I said I was not sure if the lord was speaking the word in the Gregorian Calender, or the Holy Hebrew calender? if it is the Holy Hebrew calender it will not be 2012 till April 6 coming up,so this is a possibility, between now, middle of January, the word could still be fulfilled in April, maybe April 1st and we will all be fooled LOL. Also , I said before we are not in the O.T. covenant where you will be stoned to death if you give a prophecy and it does not come to pass. In The Holy Calender we are still in 2011 and will be until April 6th our 2012.

In the N.T. ,due to the fact the rules have changed, we know in part and prophecy in part, and many are afraid this will happen, guess what, It probably will, this does not mean you are now a false prophet, any one at any time could give a prophecy, a word of Wisdom or knowledge.

I remember David Wilkerson in the Vision a book he wrote years ago, most came to pass, a few big key things did not, and what happened, he was called a false prophet, and by who? the Baptist web sites that think all the gifts are gone, so they do not realize, and should regardless of what they think about the gifts being gone, in the N.T. the word of God, and they are bible folks, some of them, they should know their bible enough and understand it is in the O.T. one would be called a false prophet if an event did not happen exactly as it was given, come on man !!! I am not bashing Baptist, other web sites and radio shows that are Calvinists do it also, love my Baptist brethren, we are one in Spirit, we can agree to disagree amen.

So, I know now first handed, and I was humbled that my first word in 33 years was not 100% accurate, and a word given on a fast day, wow, so I say all this for a reason. I have no intention on going Thessalonica on anyone, or myself,

1Th 5:19  Quench not the Spirit.

1Th 5:20  Despise not prophesyings.

The Thessalonians were different from the out of order Corinthians , who were moving in the gifts in might, but with out order. Thessalonica and Corinthians were founded around the same time and were the first two epistles, so I will not despise prophesying, I will not quench the spirit, because I miss one hear or there, and you should do the same.

Just do it. Go public. Leave  the results to God. And as I said I would wait till April when the Holy Hebrew Prophets calender is set at 2012. The 2012 Gregorian date was our Jan 1, the Jews had the second new years, as it is called in September, it is not based on the Holy Calendar, but a historic calender of Kings and business, a none Holy Calendar, changing the times and seasons, April Nissan, will be 2012, so we could still see economic collapse and famine. We will see, after April you can toss your stones, and so be it, I will never stop going public, I serve a God as you do that still reveals secrets. In the text, the word secrets is used a few times and all through the chapter as I will show you in this dual message.

The N.T. clearly teaches the reveling of secrets .

1Co 14:24  But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:

1Co 14:25  And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.

Note Secrets of the heart.


The secrets are given to us by the spirit of the lord. He wants to revel his secrets, many times the best ones are directly from the word, as we are illuminated by the Holy Spirit and get a revelation, a Rhema word, a secret, an understanding, from the word its self. It is always scary to openly move in the gifts at first, but they are given to edify the church, the body and not just yourself.

I remember many, many years ago, I was a interim minister at a spirit filled Methodist Church, the pastor left, over night I became the resident Pastor-Evangelist and I was scared to death, the very first service, the lord spoke to me about how Paul said For I have not come to you with enticing words of Mans wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and in the Power of the lord.(Paraphrase)

I tossed out my notes I prepared in perspiration, and my first sermon before 250 people the lord said, I am changing your word to my word, this is what I want you to preach on, so I did, no notes, fear and trembling, but in a few minutes the spirit fell and I just preached in the spirit, the whole sermon was a prophecy, after, at the alter call, I layed hands on people and the first time The gifts went public, half the church, maybe more came up, I stood on the podium and looked down in the spirit, a Holy Fire came over me, I starting laying hands on everyone, each person given a different word, a prophecy, a word of Knowledge and many fell down weeping as the secrets of their heart were made known. Not one person was standing when it was all over, I looked at the few left in the back, the spectators, and said, well I guess the service is over you can Go, hope to see you tonight, many of the people were there till the night service, weeping, repenting and the Glory of God was falling, now this was my first time going public and the lord moved, he increased as I decreased, the revival lasted a good two years, many things happened and many souls saved in a town called Woonsocket R.I. and it at the time was 99% Catholic, so wow.

Now, what if I quenched the spirit, what if I despised prophecy, or the gifts, what If I said NO, I would have been taken out by the lord, and another would have arose to the call, or I would have been given a second chance I hope LOL. Hay it was my first sermon as a Sr Pastor at age 23. I was just to into being a sold out christian and a total Jesus freak, with child like faith that was moving in me, I did not know any better, and now I do, 33 years later, many great moves of God, many great ministries started, but of late, I have seen the need to return to my child like faith, just walk in humility and brokenness, and let the lord do His thing, as Of late, my thing is not going that well. Never let age settle you down, or let the fire of God go out, fan it into a flame. We all have our dry spells, all of us, if that's you arise, arise, arise and battle on, fan the fire into a flame, Pastor Timothy Did, as Paul told him, so must we.

I am not stuck in the past no, no no, I just love to share the good things of the past, looking back at past moves, revivals, deliverance's this is OK in the word, we are never to look back at what we were delivered from, nor sins we are forgiven, the lord doesn't, so we should not look back .

The last part of this message is the word secret, lets go back to Daniel Ch 2

Dan 2:18  That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret;......

Dan 2:19  Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

Dan 2:22  He revealeth the deep and secret things:.......

Dan 2:28  But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets,....

Dan 2:29  As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.

Dan 2:30  But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living,.....

Dan 2:47  The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

The word secret is said eight times in this chapter, before the interpretation was given to Daniel, it was a secret to him also, after prayer with his brethren, the secret was given in a dream, finally and at the exact needed time, a life or death moment the lord gave His secret.

We  can learn a lot about, Daniels dependence on the Lord, his first public gift on display in the Kings court. Note the time, If the secret had not been revealed when it was Daniel and the other Babylonian wise men were to be put to death.
This tells me, the lord will tell you what you need to know, when you really need to know it. We are impatient sometimes, we want to know the future, whats going on, when is the economy going to fall and WW3 start, when will the famines and Earth quakes hit the Western Countries? I know many readers relate to this, as my AYIN series is still the post with the most reads, and this shows people are wanting to know, people are scared, and this is why people , even Christians go to astrologers and false prophets to hear a soothing word, a Peace, peace word, all is going to be OK, Judgment is not going to take place, all is well, your going to be rich, healthy, happy, full, this is an abomination to seek out familiar spirits, we are to seek only the lord, we must wait  for his word to our individual heart concerning what we will do, where we will flee, what we are to look to, all will be told, but not before the time. When it is life or death.  We read of the Miracle deliverance of Peter from Prison, he would have been killed the next day, many times in the bible we read, and the lord delivered them out of all, amen.

Dear saint, the lord has a plan for you, you are not appointed unto wrath, The lord will see to it, your needed insight, wisdom, secret, will come in time and more than likely a day before it could be a life and death situation. The lord waits to try our hearts, to teach us faith and to be prayer warriors, those who make it to the finish line will look back and say, now I understand why all this happened, now I know. Now I understand the whole secret.

Lastly, there is a book and a DVD out called The Secret, it is  new age, false doctrine, dark arts, astral projection, mind powers  that is 100% evil, and millions flock to it, even some who call themselves Christians, if that is you, it is an abomination to look into any of the dark arts or dark secrets of the devil, we are told in this word, the real secret belongs to the lord and in His time it will be told you.

Some Easy Advice On Knowing The Lords Will For You, These Have Been Tried And Proven, So Give Them A Try Today.

Ecc 11:6  In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.

When I am asked by another dear saint to pray, the lord gives them direction, or a person says, they have a few ideas, but need wisdom on what one to do, I always lead them to this text Verse as it speaks volumes, and is a good verse if you are in a place and you do not yet know the perfect will of God.

Never put all your eggs in one basket as the old saying goes ,true. If you have two ideas, work on one in the AM and another in the PM, as the verse says, and Why? we do not know what one may be correct, or the thing that will bear fruit. One may bare fruit and another may not, or they both may bear fruit alike. Some times nothing bares fruit, than what?. Any small business owner will tell you, be flexible in your business plan, when it takes off in one way go with it, if an unexpected turn comes up, go with it, and most times the un-thought of or unexpected happens, IF you are flexible.

If a couple ventures do not work out, it is back to the drawing table. The prayer Chamber, and than action.Action, going forward is essential, never just give up, because a dream died, or a business, or ministry bore no fruit, dream on, plan on and in the process the lord will direct your steps. The Lord can not, will not, direct a mans legs if he is sitting, he directs them as we walk. Take up thy bed and walk, we must always be going forward. Life is a journey of faith, many time we do not know what is ahead, or even around the next corner, we walk by faith and not by sight.

Gill's Commentary says sort of the same.:

for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that; the seed sown in the morning or in the evening, which good work shall best succeed; therefore do both, try all ways, make use of all opportunities;

or whether they both shall be alike good; acceptable to God, and useful to men; and if so, a man will have no occasion to repent of what he has done both in youth and old age.

We have the mind of Christ, this is a great promise we need to put into action by faith, we literally, by the Holy Spirit have the mind of Christ, our mind is always being formed into His(mind), image and so this continues, like sanctification till we are dead.

You may feel all your dreams have come to an end, you may be in a place where your at your wits end, this is OK, if we came to our own wits end sooner, we would have prayed and sought the mind of Christ, His Wisdom, it is manifold indeed, many facets to our Lord.


In Revelations we read of the 7 spirits of the lord, wild and we thought there was only one, there is only one Holy Spirit, the person of The Holy Spirit,The third person of the trinity, what this means and points to is the lords Omnipresence, as the slain lamb who is full of eyes, sounds wild. It is the word saying, I see all, at all times, and I am everywhere at once, so worry not, our all knowing Lord knows all and sees all.

The word also says , " a living dog is better than a dead lion"
You may feel like a dog, full of nothingness, lower than low and a complete failure, but this word teaches us a living Dog, is better than that once old mighty lion that is now dead, and WHY? one is alive, and the other is dead, now that little dog is the king of the jungle. LOL.

Dear reader, if you need direction, heed the text verse, walk and do not be afraid to make a move after you have prayed on the matter. Also if you really do not know what to do in a ministry or in life I give this ending advice, Find a need and fill it, do not wait for some else to, you do it, and in doing so, your doing something, your active, your walking forward. Now that need may be to offer to clean the bathrooms at your church, hay you have to start somewhere, and its to the glory of the lord, whatever your hand finds to do , do it with all your might. If you do these simple things, one day you will be right where the lords perfect will is for you, and you never know until you try.

You may be the Church Janitor today, but who knows, in time you may end up being the SR.Pastor, I have heard this before.

I Want To Repost What I think Is The Best Video I Ever Saw In 2011

I was watching this video, yet again, the only video I have ever seen that even comes close is my favorite Wake Up Church. This Video is a true Gem, Many have already seen it, see it again. I want to leave this video up for the weekend and go pray and seek the lord 24-7 so I will have a new post Monday have a great week and please watch this video and pass it on, it is powerful.




Poor By Choice Now, But Soon It will Not Be By Choice For All

1Co 4:11  Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling place;

Barnes;

1Co 4:11 
Even unto this present hour - Paul here drops the irony, and begins a serious recapitulation of his actual sufferings and trials. The phrase used here “unto this present hour” denotes that these things had been incessant through all their ministry. They were not merely at the commencement of their work, but they had continued and attended them everywhere. And even then they were experiencing the same thing. These privations and trials were still continued, and were to be regarded as a part of the apostolic condition.

Note: Paul was called the suffering Apostle, as Jesus said on the road to Damascus, I shall show you what things you will suffer for my name. Paul suffered more than any Apostle in the bible, partly due to many of the Apostles, the word says, stayed in Jerusalem, Paul traveled, took the gospel where the name of Jesus was never heard, nor the gospel truth. He was a Evangelist and missionary. Many in these fields, like my call, can relate to the poverty and want . Paul was indeed the greatest one who suffered, many of us may have not yet  lived a life of such constant types of need, lack, poverty, no home, thirst, hunger, yet now days and in the great depression as like the one coming and now is, we will know more of this and it will also be a time of purification and testing for us to enter heaven as holy, tried vessels, tried by fire.

Barnes Cont:.

We both hunger and thirst - The apostles, like their master, were poor, and in traveling about from place to place, it often happened that they scarcely found entertainment of the plainest kind, or had money to purchase it. It is no dishonor to be poor, and especially if that poverty is produced by doing good to others. Paul might have been rich, but he chose to be poor for the sake of the gospel. To enjoy the luxury of doing good to others, we ought to be willing to be hungry and thirsty, and to be deprived of our ordinary enjoyments.

Note; he said It is no dishonor to be poor;
Sadly, in our class society where the gap between rich and poor, the haves and have not's has never been so wide. This is nothing new, as the Cast society in India is well known, all over the world the poor are looked down on. In America Christians are starting to look down on the poor, I wrote on this, spoke on it. It shocks me, it was not this way before, not even 20 years ago, but the have not's are almost despised by the haves and they are Christians, how the Church needs to re read all of the epistle of James again and repent of this. Jesus was poor, the Apostle was poor, many preachers, great men in the lords eyes were poor, and so many shallow, Christians who do nothing, or little for the kingdom of God, see a servant of the lord come in  and has old apparel on, or nothing to put in the offering plate, I have seen and heard first handed, the scoffing of the haves against the have not's, the ones who watch T.V. news and have become so proud and arrogant, the poor are taking our taxes, I have heard this the past year dozens of times, and from ministers and SR saints alike,

I am not defending the fact I am poor and can relate to this study, I am not envious of those who call themselves Christians and have many things, my issue is the spirit of pride, not the money, Pride, it hurts the Holy Spirit, grieves him, and the spirit in me grieves when I hear it and see it. Their God is mammon, money and they think all is well, they complain about their taxes and are ignorant of the fact,most of their taxes are not being used on any of this, our country is in such deep debt, most taxes do not go to what they think, it goes on interest, loans and endless wars, They exalt the soilder and war machine of America where their taxes are going, and frown on the hunble servants of the lord who are the warriors and soilders for christ. I mentioned this in detail in a video blog I posted called, The Holy Spirit Has Left The Building.

Barnes goes on and says basically what I said:

How many professed Christians are ashamed to go to the house of God because they cannot dress well, or be in the fashion, or outshine their neighbors!

But read the next part it is true and power packed.

 If an apostle was willing to be meanly clad in delivering the message of God, then assuredly we should be willing to preach, or to worship him in such clothing as he provides.
Well stated, I hope you really let those words sink in.

Barnes Cont:

And have no certain dwelling-place - No fixed or permanent home. They wandered to distant lands; threw themselves on the hospitality of strangers, and even of the enemies of the gospel; when driven from one place they went to another; and thus they led a wandering, uncertain life, amidst strangers and foes. They who know what are the comforts of home; who are surrounded by beloved families; who have a peaceful and happy fireside; and who enjoy the blessings of domestic tranquility, may be able to appreciate the trials to which the apostles were subjected. All this was for the sake of the gospel; all to purchase the blessings which we so richly enjoy.


Jesus was homeless, He said, "Foxes have holes, birds have nests, but the son of Man has no where to lay His head". Natuarlly because He created the world being the word, he was in  creation, in his house the out doors. Poverty by many in true ministry is a matter of choice, esp. if you choose to be a God pleaser and not a man pleaser, If you choose to preach truth, conviction, the whole counsell of God, sound doctrine, Judgment, people do not want to hear this any more, they want nothing to do with it, Paul said in the end times, "Men shall not be able to endure sound doctrine, but would seek out preachers that preached a shallow gospel, a feel good message".

I know this all to well first handed, true doctrine, repentance preaching draws little crowds, and small churches, and no support, This I know for a fact.
It is poverty by choice, if you can relate to this, think about Lazurus and the rich man, what a parable, the poor man was in happyness in the lords eternity, while the rich man was burning in hell, he said of the rich man, you had your stuff and fun, money, enjoyment in this world, that was your reward, this poor man who was so afflected, the dogs licked his wounds while on this earth, but now? the saying the man with the most toys at the end wins, is about as wise as saying, thier is no God, as the fool hath said in his heart.

The next verses are just as difficult to live out, but many of us are and will be soon.

1Co 4:12  And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:

1Co 4:13  Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.

The first verse spoke of want, need, poverty, these two verses are like salt on a wound, these verses talk about the persecution of men, verbal assults, being treated poorly. All this is the trials and tribulations of the true saint of God, but we are more than conquerers in all things through Jesus Christ our Lord, Our lord suffered the same mockings, beatings, tauntings, spit on, defamed, tortuered, killed on a cross, are we as His followers to expect any less, if you are one of those I am all set, I will not see such suffering, I am the head not the tail, I am blessed and properity is mine kind of readers, listen, that is the O.T. false doctrine of the word of Faith, no where in the N.T. or in church history do we read in the bible false promises like these so, WAKE UP!!!!
I once heard a prosperity preacher say, the poverty of the apostles and Jesus himself, and the christian forfathers were poor because they lacked faith, Kennith Copeland and company, silver and Gold have I none, but what I have I give, In the name of Jesus rise and walk.
These false teachers can not say rise and walk, and they think they can, the apostle Peter, John, Paul were poor because they did not have enough faith, good lord man. This is heresy, again if thats you, or the teaching your under RUN!!!, RUN for your life, get out of the place, Turn off Apostate Christian T.V. The only one who is prospering is the face preaching a false gospel to you. Ok that was my anti Prosperity gospel rant.


Let this post comfort you who have made the choice to please the lord and pay the price, those who are on the mission field, those who are making a stand preaching, teaching truth at all cost, so be it, we will one day have our full reward and it will be grand and spectacular, just wait and see and so,
Do not be weary in sowing for you shall reap one day. Eternal life in a mansion in the very presnse of the divine trinity, wow, its worth the wait.
