Abraham's Walk Of Faith, When We Do Not Know Where We Are Going, But Are Told To Go.

Gen 12:4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

Gen 12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Henry:

Genesis 12:4-5

Here is, I. Abraham's removal out of his country, out of Ur first and afterwards out of Haran, in compliance with the call of God: So Abram departed; he was not disobedient to the heavenly vision, but did as he was bidden, not conferring with flesh and blood, Gal_1:15, Gal_1:16. His obedience was speedy and without delay, submissive and without dispute; for he went out, not knowing whither he went (Heb_11:8), but knowing whom he followed and under whose direction he went. Thus God called him to his foot, Isa_41:2.

Gal 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,

Gal 1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

Barnes:

Flesh and blood - Any human being, for so the phrase properly signifies; see the note at Mat_16:17. This does not mean here, that Paul did not consult his own ease and happiness; that he was regardless of the sufferings which he might be called to endure; that he was willing to suffer, and was not careful to make provision for his own comfort - which was true in itself - but that he did not lay the case before any man, or any body of human beings for instruction or advice. He acted promptly and decisively. He was not disobedient to the heavenly vision Act_26:19, but resolved at once to obey.

Note, see how when you dig into the word, many times you come to a full circle, this just happened, not my text, nor message, the text is Gen, but in a cross reference to Gal Ch 1, we read another commentary saying, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision, that is the way the Holy Spirit, presses, illuminates, points out something the lord wants you to know. I just did a sermon a while ago, concerning ministering in the overflow, Not evaporation, it contained this as did a message recently posted, thus the Holy Spirit is saying to me, 'Son, forge ahead, no matter what, fulfill your ministry and call'.

I wanted to point that out as an example in advanced bible study, if you dig into it, there will be confirmations, and the lord will repeat a truth from Gen to Gal , he wants to be understood, also not conferring with flesh, very important sometimes, if the call is there, it is not to support lone ranger, self appointed people, who give themselves a title like Apostle, or whatever, it is the lords call, when that call is for sure you go with it, even if you do not know where your going and so we are back to the text message. Full circle again, love it. LOL.

Heb 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

Heb 11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

Heb 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Isa 41:1 Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

Isa 41:2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.

Isa 41:3 He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

Isa 41:4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he



II. His age when he removed: he was seventy-five years old, an age when he should rather have had rest and settlement; but, if God will have him to begin the world again now in his old age, he will submit. Here is an instance of an old convert.

III. The company and cargo that he took with him.

1. He took his wife, and his nephew Lot, with him; not by force and against their wills, but by persuasion. Sarai, his wife, would be sure to go with him; God had joined them together, and nothing should put them asunder. If Abram leave all, to follow God, Sarai will leave all, to follow Abram, though neither of them knew whither. And it was a mercy to Abram to have such a companion in his travels, a help meet for him. Note, It is very comfortable when husband and wife agree to go together in the way to heaven. Lot also, his kinsman, was influenced by Abram's good example, who was perhaps his guardian after the death of his father, and he was willing to go along with him too. Note, Those that go to Canaan need not go alone, for, though few find the strait gate, blessed be God, some do; and it is our wisdom to go with those with whom God is (Zec_8:23), wherever they go.

Zec 8:23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

2. They took all their effects with them - all their substance and movable goods, that they had gathered. For,

(1.) With themselves they would give up their all, to be at God's disposal, would keep back no part of the price, but venture all in one bottom, knowing it was a good bottom.

(2.) They would furnish themselves with that which was requisite, both for the service of God and the supply of their family, in the country whither they were going. To have thrown away his substance, because God had promised to bless him, would have been to tempt God, not to trust him.

(3.) They would not be under any temptation to return; therefore they leave not a hoof behind, lest that should make them mindful of the country from which they came out.

3. They took with them the souls that they had gotten, that is,

(1.) The servants they had bought, which were part of their substance, but are called souls, to remind masters that their poor servants have souls, precious souls, which they ought to take care of and provide food convenient for.

(2.) The proselytes they had made, and persuaded to attend the worship of the true God, and to go with them to Canaan: the souls which (as one of the rabbin expresses it) they had gathered under the wings of the divine Majesty. Note, Those who serve and follow God themselves should do all they can to bring others to serve and follow him too. These souls they are said to have gained. We must reckon ourselves true gainers if we can but win souls to Christ.

IV. Here is their happy arrival at their journey's end: They went forth to go into the land of Canaan; so they did before (Gen_11:31), and then took up short, but now they held on their way, and, by the good hand of their God upon them, to the land of Canaan they came, where by a fresh revelation they were told that this was the land God promised to show them. They were not discouraged by the difficulties they met with in their way, nor diverted by the delights they met with, but pressed forward. Note, 1. Those that set out for heaven must persevere to the end, still reaching forth to those things that are before. 2. That which we undertake in obedience to God's command, and a humble attendance upon his providence, will certainly succeed, and end with comfort at last.

Reader did you get that:

therefore they leave not a hoof behind, lest that should make them mindful of the country from which they came out.

That is so important when following and obeying until death the heavenly vision, do not leave anything you have behind, not even a hoof, so you are not tempted to go back, nor have reason to. We see this in the Exodus, they wanted to go back to Egypt, not that they left a hoof there, they did not, they were in rebellion, and want, they were not satisfied with divine provision, the cloud by day, fire by night, just was not enough, they wanted ease, but it would have been their death and slavery, see how foolish our hearts can be when we say, 'I miss the good old days, yes I was in sin, but I miss the old days,' Paul said, 'this one thing I do, I no longer look behind, but I look ahead'. Note: have that video sermon posted We shot at the acts Ch 2 place before we got the mission home, and there was shown the open vision of the very place we are in, wow, all comes together, we are hear, we are still waiting, but we are learning more than ever, what a blessing to have my marriage restored, and as the commentary said, a wife that followed me all over and still does, my help mate, it is a blessing.

The lord told us go, so we did, we still do not see the full pitcher but we keep going ahead for Christ, every day is a walk of faith. You may be in the same place. The number one thing I have had people tell me as a minister is, " I do not know what my call is, or even what gift I have", listen, read the word, do what it says, pray and seek direction, do ECC 11:6 and just Go, it's a call of faith, it is not easy, it takes faith. You may not know what to do, but you know your called to do something, it is your personal walk of faith, no one else can walk your walk of faith, it is personal, different, but we all have a standard in the word, the bible is our map, we are not left hanging, but we at times are told to wait, wait till the cloud moves, just wait in faith. Yes that one word again, Wait, not NO, but wait. Sometimes I wish the lord just said, " No' Not wait, because that means you have to wait, and waiting is hell , I say often, wait, just wait, 'OK, how long, what do I do while I am waiting'? Pray, seek the lord, live life, walk by faith not by sight, praise, and serve while you wait, but- hurry up and wait upon the lord-, as Petra says in the song, " More Power to Ya"

I ask for prayers for our ministry, for personal direction, how we need prayer reader, please pray for us, our day is coming, soon the boot camp will be over, the march will be on and than we will understand what we do not today. Faith, it is all faith. Reader, have you heard the lord say to you, 'do this or that'? Have you obeyed, or have you said, 'someday'? Make 2014 count for something, and it may be just waiting in faith.

Lastly, I have said, in Hebrew the word wait always means one of two things in different places.

1. Wait- in silence

2. Wait- in faith

That is profound, and our map book tells us exactly how to handle waiting, and walking in faith, even when we have no idea where we are going.

Wheres The Beef, Want Some Meat, Eat This Message Up, And Look At Some Details On Prophecy And History.

Note: I have not put up a detailed prophecy teaching in a while, so why not one more time as we say good-bye to 2013, last one in 2013, keep coming back, you see the effort and content put on just this, the main site. The workman is worthy of his hire.

I once read a while back, Prince Phillip said, " When he dies and he is reincarnated he wants to come back as a virus that would wipe out humanity"

The ones who think such things, the 10% that want the 90% of US gone. It is no new thing, I was reading Fox’s Book of Martyrs and in the first persecution, well...Nero, a type of the antichrist his name 666, as was Hitlers, odd, true. Nero in the first persecution said almost the exact words.

The First Persecution, Under Nero, A.D. 67

The first persecution of the Church took place in the year 67, under Nero, the sixth emperor of Rome. This monarch reigned for the space of five years, with tolerable credit to himself, but then gave way to the greatest extravagancy of temper, and to the most atrocious barbarities. Among other diabolical whims, he ordered that the city of Rome should be set on fire, which order was executed by his officers, guards, and servants. While the imperial city was in flames, he went up to the tower of Macaenas, played upon his harp, sung the song of the burning of Troy, and openly declared that 'he wished the ruin of all things before his death.' Besides the noble pile, called the Circus, many other palaces and houses were consumed; several thousands perished in the flames, were smothered in the smoke, or buried beneath the ruins.

How sick and evil is that, evil is evil and it always will be evil. I have been studying Church history and History with a new passion, as history repeats it's self, and in history we see cycles, they repeat aprox. every 100 years, this is why I posted the message on 1914. In the O.T. the cycle of blessing and apostasy almost always seemed to run around every 40 years, it is said every 40 years a fresh revival breaks out, not always a good thing, as each revival gets farther and farther from the holy bible, convicting truth and just manifestations.

I was re reading the events of 1914- what we saw, was.
1. The establishment of the federal reserve
2. Tyrants everywhere
3. World wide chaos and uprisings
4. The start of ww1
5. The gold standard killed and in Canada that year it was outlawed to use gold coin
6. The biggest historic drop in the DOW, wall street was high in trade in 1914 it hit an all time low, we know in 1929 it hit, fell, black Friday.
7. The establishment of Merrill lynch, stocks, and the world bank.
8. Odd disasters and freak accidents, like the sister ship of the titanic sunk, odd one.
9. Ball games, movies, entertainment continued in all this, distraction by entertainment.


The way wall street is going an all time high shows clearly 1929 is coming soon, it can not continue, unemployment, the real numbers, are at a all time high, those on Government helps all time high. War looms, an economic collapse looms, The Ireland treaty and trade deals like our free trade and NAFTA, same stuff and in-sync with what we see going on. One thing that did not, was the wild birth pains we see, read every single day. War, and the fed, that was about it, no EQ's- the only noted disaster was in MI St. all time rain came and caused floods, no famine, no volcano's but wars and rumors of war.

This shows all is the same aside from daily birth pains, this says prophetically we are near the end days more so than when we first believed.

When war took out Israel by Babylon and other places, no EQ's, it was war, famine, pestilence the big three, always when a people are judged the lord uses as a rod of correction, war, famine, pestilence, and we are seeing this. It causes world wide uprisings as we see today, everywhere, almost no place is untouched, places that are, are being hit hard by Volcano’s , sea fish mammal die off, pestilences, floods and such, so what does all this say?

Are we close to the start of the seven year tribulation, we do not know, we will know when a man arrives on the scene, of Jewish descent, not like the movies always show a European man in the U.N. becomes antichrist, but to be antichrist he must have Jewish blood, or fake it, this is a must or the Jews would never accept him as the long awaited messiah, many people have this all wrong in books, movies websites, they over look, to be the real antichrist he must be at-least partially a true Jew, why do people not get this?

When this man comes to the scene and seal one is broken that is the coming of antichrist, the 7 year peace treaty signed with Israel, and the temple rebuilt, that is sign one, seal one. We do not know a thing, but we know we are in birth pains, that's it.

I said if the true holy Jewish calender is correct and it is year 5773-4, who knows, we honestly do not, I have spent only 3 years trying to pin point that. Others say it has been past the 6000 year mark. In ancient eschatology, bible prophecy- it has always been taught in 6 days as the world was created and on the 7th rest, this is prophetic for 6ooo years and the 7th being the 1000 year millennial reign, one problem if this is true, we do not find any scripture to back this doctrine at all, anywhere in the bible, not a thing, and this was in circulation with the anti Nicene fathers, in a way, made known by the pre -trib rapture theology.

The 7 Churches of Asia Minor are Larkin's 7 church ages, dispensations, I am dispensationalist, but the 7 year type of, church ages, also can not be supported by the bible, they were 7 real churches in a great time of tribulation and apostasy. They are for our instruction as is the O.T. on what not to do, and what to do, but to be a symbol of a 7 church age, and the Church of Philadelphia is the rapture church simply is not found in the word, and can not be supported, we have types, dual prophecy yes, as we do in the O.T.

Larkin's charts the father of Dispensationalism had many truths, I believe in a literal 7 year tribulation, a literal abomination of desolation, Jesus taught this, a real antichrist, a person, not a system, a real Temple not a type of, these are the core teachings of many who teach prophecy on the net, but they are wrong, they are the same ones that are saying we are already in the tribulation, this can not be because the seal one has not been opened simple stuff, false teachers, false watchmen, fear mongers like Steve Quayle-Russ Drisdar and Co. and other false watchmen I mention them a lot, because it is deception. Paul said, see no man deceive you, not these new kids on the block, well some are old, but a new wind of doctrine.

The reformer commentaries, E-Sword is mostly reformed theology, Gill- replacement theology, heresy. Gill says the 7 churches represented the 7 areas in Europe where the reformations broke out, this is replacement theology, Wesley, Clarke, Henry are not reformer theologians for the most part. We must look way back in history as in the anti-Nicene fathers the earliest wrings and in it we find the truth of what was Orthodox doctrine, up to the point we get to the Latin fathers, the Catholic church, just can those ones.

ALL Presbyterians-Hyper-Calvinist teach replacement theology, all, did you know that,? And now they have a reformed movement that is hyper-Calvinism on steroids. How do these doctrines by such learned men miss Paul's writings concerning the 100% return of the lord to the Jews and it is than the real latter day rain falls, on the Jews, it is taught now, we are in the latter day rain, and its also coming, so what is it? false- fact, read Joel.

When Israel is restored by Jehovah to the promise land in the O.T. it is all the land from the Nile to Euphrates river, not a dot, this was mans doing with the ww2 Balfour deceleration. Pike and CO set it up, see that post on WW1,2,3 free mason pike, and the plan to date, the lord has allowed. I feel we will see a false pre- antichrist.

Look, because our nation is soon to lose its sovereignty and freedom is not the rapture or the tribulation, no more than when Rome fell. Arrogant it is to think we are more special than the lords first covenant people, we are not, sin is sin, and a holy God punishes his Old covenant and new covenant ones the same when they as a people, a nation reject, kick the lord out . History repeats and dual prophecy.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.


Christian can not be, should not be deceived into thinking, before America falls they will be caught away, it is 100% false beloved, it is A tribulation, not THE tribulation, at least not yet, this could change, keep your eyes on a real 7 year peace treaty and a temple rebuilt than you will know we are in the tribulation. So, if the 6000 millennial insight is true, we still have around 200 years before the end of the 7 year trib, by the holy prophetic Jewish calender not the second new years all use in September, it is march-April that's the real new years, the lord said it to Moses, sometimes its later due to the 19 year lunar cycle changes, but it was first given as March it was the start of the year, the passover. We do not know, we will know things when we see them, but at present we do not, so will we see history repeat? God knows, I do not, but historically yes, war, economic problems, world wide chaos and such.

Happy new year to us LOL. it is always a day to rejoice for every day is the day the lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it, no matter what, no matter what happens, we will wait and see, while we wait, we serve- we praise we do not stand still and bite our nails, we rest in our lord, so father History, and mighty lord, what does 2014 bring, well the worst winter on record, in parts that's a give me, what else. War more than likely, and if history repeats the West and the E.U , some states, will be involved like it or not. Saudi Arabia and Israel coalition , a never before thing, Saudi says it will go it alone, if so, that will be the end of the petrol dollar, fact, and this could be the plan, to bring in the one world currency, what better way, than our oil petrol dollar the Saudis use exclusively and if, when, they do attack that's the end of the Saudis for sure, and the economy will fall asap, but we will see. Who knows, all I know is one day at a time, we do not worry about tomorrow, not what happens in 2014, that is for sure, more aggressive soul winning and ministry on-line, renewed effort off- line, lord willing. Work until we can not until than , or if I do not , see you on the other side.


The One Thing That Makes A Christian Shine Is Humility

Mat 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

Mat 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

Mat 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Meyer:

Removing Stumbling-Blocks

Mat_18:1-9

Our Lord’s transfiguration suggested that the time to take up His Kingdom was near; and the Apostles began to arrange their plans. The Master therefore used a child for His text and preached a sermon on humility. We must not be childish, but childlike. See 1Co_13:11. The beauty of a little child is its unconsciousness, humility, simplicity, and faith. Christ’s kingdom abounds with the rare blending of the warrior and the child. See 2Ki_5:14. God’s best gifts are placed, not on a high shelf for us to reach up to, but on a low one to which we must stoop.

An offense is anything that makes the path of a holy and useful life more difficult for others. Be sure, in all your actions, to consider the weaker ones who are watching and following you. “Father,” said a boy, “take the safe path; I am coming.” A man, whose arm was caught in a machine, saved his boy from being drawn in by severing the arm with a hatchet. All that hurts us or others, however precious, must be severed.

I love that, we must not be childless, but child like. This is the message. We are not simpletons, we have the mind of Christ, we have revelation, the presence of the lord, wisdom, study, no we are meek, but as the word says, be wise as serpents, and, or, meek as doves, yes the children of the lord are to be prudent, wise, seek wisdom in Godly fear.

PRIDE, is the dreaded thing that caused Lucifer’s fall, it comes before a persons fall, Pride cometh before the fall. The lord hates pride, he will not allow it in us. If any one reading this thinks they are something, take heed, lest ye fall. We are not worms, but we are wise as serpents, we are to be bold as lions, warfare in spirit, is for the training of men and women to mature. Humility is the mark of the Christ in us, the risen savior.

Godly fear, holy trembling, holiness are the same, we must be in reverence and awe of the lord, not in fear of lighting boltz, if we are truly his. Humble, gentle, loving, but bold, but if we are not humble we are done, and if we are not like a child in trusting faith we are also done.

I am deeply moved by humble people, so much Pride in America and the world, pride, sticking pride, it is smoke in the lords nostrils. We are to be in humbleness, so many I see are not, preachers, teachers, those in leadership, are anything but humble, I am not talking dumbed down, we are to seek wisdom, but we will be growing until death. Not one of us will ever be able to say, " I have arrived"

Paul's thorn in the flesh was to keep him from being puffed up, it was kept for humility, the word is clear about this. Got a thorn? It may be the thing that will keep you humble until you see the lord face to face, the thorns are needed, esp. for ones who have many gifts, talents, abilities, revelations true, not false, insight, it is a people who are in most need of the thorn, the rose has a thorn it is a symbol of the lord, the fragrance, beauty and blood, it is only because of the blood of Jesus we are his, and we had nothing to do with it.

While every good and perfect gift is Good and from a Good loving God, we must understand esp. those that are leaders, teachers, we fall under the greater condemnation, meaning judgment, accountability, yet many want rose peddles tossed to the floor as they walk by, in the heart they seek praise from man, they want to be greeted in the market place as Pastor, reverend, Evangelist, Etc. Pharisees, they are still in the Church and behind many pulpits and it stinks. It can be seen , it is easy to tell a tree by it's fruit, and the fruit is one that is full of patience, love, kindness, humility and such, if you are fallen your fragrance is gone, your blood covering is gone, but it can be changed in Humble prayer today.

I think one has to face many things to be made ready, it takes more than a bible degree, it takes the school of Christ, it takes being in his image, not ours, not mans, the ten year plan man, I call ministers who are in it for a vocation, a pay check, with no compassion, no grace, no humility.

They will face a holy God one day and than they will be undone, the horror will hit, look be like the child, understand the father heart of the lord, full of mercy, compassion, but if you have pride know this, soon your house of cards will fall, as pride cometh before the fall, but what will be your end? what will be your case at the judgment seat, toys, things, what? humility, child like faith, that will be the greatest in heaven. amen.

You may not be called to stand behind a pulpit, but do you carry a soap box? By that I mean the kind of person that is always right, no matter what you say, you can give link after link, document after document, 100 proofs, but they laugh and in pride, for that is what it is, only they are right, all the time. You probably know a few folks like that, it drives me crazy, and you as well. It is like, 'wow, what does it take for this person to just admit, they are wrong”?

Ones who are never wrong, are ones in pride, it speaks very loud, the know it all. This is not humility, also they are marked with a large dose of no compassion on anyone. Know anyone like that? This is what I mean, I love humble people, it is a joy to be around a humble person, is it not?

Think on this

History Repeats-100 years ago, As Of 2014 Look At 1914


Note, how odd is this, this is message 1014, that 14 stands out as you will see in this message, I loved putting this one together, hope someone else likes it.

Oddly enough it was the same year Meyers volumes were first published, that's what started me on this 100 years ago,in Jan1 2014 we will see the 100 year cycle. I was reading Meyers devotion today and said, " Dear lord it sounds like today, and it was 1914, yes it was penned before that, but the same time frame, before all this, so much was going on, we did not have instant access to it all like we do on the internet today, but it was all coming down, just 100 years ago. Nothing new under the sun. Meyers devotion speaks of revolution, political corruption and ...well you read it, it reads like today's head lines, as well as 100 years ago, nothing changes. Nations fell, nations rose, wild how history repeats, and I mean always.

THE MARCH OF GOD'S PROGRESS
"Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God, even the Father; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign."-- 1Co_15:24.

WHITHER IS God moving? When we speak of the eternal progress of the Almighty, it must be remembered that we are adopting human speech, because God lives in the eternal present. He is Jehovah--"I AM!"

God is moving to the supreme exaltation of our Saviour. Christ must and will reign, and the Father's power is even now engaged in putting all things under His feet. He has given Him the heathen for His inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for His possession. It is true that we see not yet all things put under Him, but God is even now engaged in hastening the fulfilment of His eternal plan.

The rise and fall of rulers and kingdoms within the last few years; the clamour for new methods of government has menaced the ancient order; the vortex of elections; the babel of voices; the rivalry of statesmen and parties! What of these? They are the clouds of His feet, the movement of His pieces on the board, the successive stages in the unfolding of His plan. Watch the Divine strategy! God raises up one, and puts down another; there is not an item in the newspaper, nor a change on the map, nor a revolution among the people, however obscure, that is not contributing to that final scene, when the Son of Man shall come to the Ancient of Days, and there shall be given Him dominion and glory, and a Kingdom, that all people, and nations, and languages shall serve Him!

There is need for us all to know God's movements, especially in this momentous era, because only so can we enter into His Rest. We can look out calmly on a world in confusion when once we have learnt to understand the Divine programme of gathering up all things in Christ, who is the Head. To the careless world His way is in the sea, and His paths in the deep waters, and His footsteps are not known, but to those who love and follow Him. The heavens may depart, the hills be removed; but His kindness shall not depart, neither shall the covenant of His peace be removed.

PRAYER
Hasten the coming of Thy Kingdom, O Lord, the fulfilment of Thy purpose. Keep us watchful and alert, that at any moment we may discern the movement of Thy hand, and detect Thy will and guidance in the providence of little things. AMEN.

That is amazing to me, and 100 years ago. I am not knew to using the site ' History Orb” to see how history repeats, this is the first time I put it up, but I use it all the time, as a history buff and as one who sees how history repeats it is fascinating to me. Some may find it dull, but the long, long list of events below, are events, we are still going on, many things have had a big upgrade, others a big down grade, in it all, we fear nothing, even the earth changes, birth pains, we see, these birth pains are truly record breaking every year. I posted a great 2.5 hour vid that is a recap of 2013 and all the events, earth changes, Birth pains, that happened, it is worth a watch. It is time to reflect, and as we do, we see we are rushing towards big events, but as you will read below, history repeats and the lord is still lord, as he and his kingdom still progress forward, and no man can stop it amen. Make this day, this month, whats left of it, this year count for something, take back some ground, engage in spiritual warfare, get back to the lord and prayer and watch and pray, serve others, make your life count for something, leave your mark as ambassadors for Christ, and to His holy Glory, we see His holy progression, as we progress until we can not.




Note: What you read below is events I chose to post, the events I did not, and it's hard to believe, many theaters opened, plays took place, music was recorded, sports were being played, writers wrote novels, and a lot of fluff. What amazes me is all the sports, entertainment, film business, music business, sports records, all happened while all the events below happened, this also shows, nothing has changed. U.S. Events are wild, Federal reserve opened, Canada could not issue gold coin, many political things, and disasters were going on, wild. An all time record rainfall hit America MI St. It all seems like what we are seeing today. War was on, 100 years ago. Free trade type deals going on, secret meeting , Menial lynch, the too big to fail started, stocks hit an all time low, while stocks are at a all time high and 2013 will end in the biggest stock rally in ages, it does not reflect the real economic situation at all. In 1929 Thursday, the day before Friday 1929 ( Black Friday ) Stocks were doing great, life seemed fine, games were going on and the depression was 24 hours away. History repeats.

DEC 2012 repost Dec 7 , great Word. 24/7 ARE U 24/7



I will start this post with Myers old devotion for today, as It what I wanted to write about, a true hunger and thirst of the lord, yearning for the lords divine presence and going deeper into the thing of the lord, and his word.


December 7

THE QUEST FOR THE ETERNAL
"O God, Thou art my God; early will I seek Thee: my soul thirsteth for Thee; my flesh longeth for Thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is."-- Psa_63:1.

THIS PSALM has a special fascination for those who can no longer gather with the assemblies of God's people. David was in flight from Absalom, wandering in the wilderness. The land around is waterless and weary, and his enemies are on his track. But all this seems secondary to his longing for God. Weary and thirsty though he is, his most agonizing desire is for God, the living God, as he had seen and known Him in the tent, which he had reared on Zion for His worship. The barren wilderness, seemed to reflect the craving of his soul for God.

In many hearts and lives his mood is reflected to-day. Our soul thirsts and pines for the vision of the power and glory of God, for the communion of saints. Perhaps David lays greater emphasis on the Sanctuary than we do on our places of worship. We must remember that the Glory of the Shekinah shone between the Cherubim in that hallowed Shrine.

In Psa_63:5-7, the longing soul seems satisfied. As we long for God, we find Him. As we seek, we possess (Isa_41:17-18). As we remember Him, we break into song. The fact is that our yearnings after God are the response of our hearts to the beat of His heart and to the knock of His hand. Prayer is the response of our nature to the circulation of His lifeblood within us. When we seek His face, it is in answer to His own summons. "When Thou saidst, Seek ye My face; my heart said unto Thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek." As one has stated it: "Our desires and aspirations are responses to the outflowings of the Holy Spirit in silent or expressed communion."

The climax of the Psalm is reached in Psa_63:8. Notice the three-fold steps: my soul thirsts; my soul is satisfied; my soul followeth hard after Thee. Remember Him upon thy bed! Meditate on Him through the night-watches! Hide thyself under the shadow of His wings! Keep step with His purposes! Follow close behind Him! Whosoever follows hard on God's track, trusting in Him, rejoicing in His companionship, reaching out toward Him, will feel his own outstretched hand enclosed in a strong and tender grasp, steadying against weariness and failure, and making His own footsteps a way for our feet.

PRAYER
Bestow upon me also, O Lord my God, understanding to know Thee, diligence to seek Thee, wisdom to find Thee, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace Thee. AMEN.

It is a 24/7 walk, it can be nothing less. It can be less if we are satisfied with less of the lords presence and revelation. Gone are the old, old days when men of God, as we read in old books, sought the lord 3,4,5,6, hours a day, or more, and still ministered. We live in a fast paced world, we are in a new world that makes it very hard for most to spend that kind of time in the lords presence. To those in F.T. ministry, Pastors of Neglect, I think they should re- read the verse in acts.

Act 6:1  And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.

Act 6:2  Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

Act 6:3  Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

Act 6:4  But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

Act 6:5  And the saying pleased the whole multitude:

What did Peter say? We will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word. Prayer, bible study, and preaching, teaching, that should be the job of every SR.Pastor, but it is not.

I ministered with, under ,and as an associate Pastor, I have seen first hand, back in the good days, Pastors of neglect, they spent more time fishing, gossiping, working around their house, doing lunch, on the phone, anything and everything, BUT prayer and the word. Many Pastors have their sermons prepared a year in advance, yes a year, why not just buy sermons off the net, many do that I kid you not, the result, a powerless, do nothing, dead, politician, and not a man of God behind the modern pulpits. Why do 1,500 Pastors in N.America leave the job, they were never on the job, why do these men even enter ministry, for money, power, local fame what? 1 or maybe 2 days in an office, on Sat or Sun. they pull out their sermon prepared seven months ago, and preach a stale word, not a now word. The Apostate Church is Apostate, as it always comes from the pulpit to the pews.
Jesus was kicked out a long time ago, for programs and fellowship suppers, bingo and nothing more.

To the Christian , the Christian not in ministry should also have this 24/7 walk with the lord, how often do we read watch and prayer at all times, without ceasing? These had jobs, so what is it? The heart.

Where is your heart, it is there you will find your treasure. It is time to have a heart of 24/7 worship, prayer, thanksgiving, praise, it is time to arise , arise to all the lord has for you to be, and do for his glory.

The Jews prayed three times a day, can you pray three times a day, most do not, do you study, not just read our daily bread and a verse, I mean do you study to show yourself approved? Why not. The Heart.

 In our heart is where the deepness and riches of the lord speak to us. Knowledge, head knowledge, is what becomes wisdom, once you apply what we have studied, with out study, with out knowledge how can you know the time we are in, how can you apply knowledge and make wise dececions, you can not. 24/7 is the only way it works, there are no short cuts to the lords presence and his Glory, he wants to reveal himself to you every day, not one time a week.

Think on this and think , ask yourself, am I a 24/7 Christian?

2 Whose Glory

1Co 10:31  Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

1Co 10:32  Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:

1Co 10:33  Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

I want to look first at vrs 33, as if one did not know any better they may think, Paul was a man pleaser, he was anything but.
How do we apply this lesson, this truth, what does it mean. Lets first look at Clarkes commentary.

Clarke;

1 Corinthians 10:33

Even as I please all men - Act as I do: forgetting myself, my own interests, convenience, ease, and comfort, I labor for the welfare of others; and particularly that they may be saved. How blessed and amiable was the spirit and conduct of this holy man!

We read in the word Paul said when he was with a Jew he was a Jew, when he was with a Gentile he was as a Gentile, that all may become saved, he was not a politician, he was wise as a serpent, I won you with guile, not deciet, but wisdom, as a trapper hides his net, anything to catch all mens hearst for Christ.

Clarke puts is short, sweet, and simple, it simply means, Paul forgot self and concentrated on others. This is very practical in the holiday season, esp. with youth, it is not about self it is about the lord. Christmas is a pagan holiday, Hanukkah is not, but added later as a non Mosaic feast.

Feasts of lights, the Catholics saw the Jews celebrating the feast of lights and said, hay we want our own feast, light a tree and make some cash, that is all it is about, money.

Forgetting self and helping others is the best way to spend the holiday, work in a food kitchen for the homeless, give a gift to someone in need you may not know, show love, mercy, compassion, we are all sinners saved by grace.

Vrs 31, whatever we eat, drink, or whatever we DO, Do all to the glory of the lord, so my question is, are you giving the lord glory in all you do? We all make mistakes, and sin, I am not talking about perfection, I am talking about daily self sacrifice, daily soul wining, daily anything, is it for the lords glory, or yours?

Let us think on this, in the holiday season,  and  everyday, let us strive to lift up Jesus, let us strive to please others and not ourself, it brings joy, happiness, and inner peace, a gift is not a gift , until it is given away, what is your gift, are you using it? If not, its not a gift until you use it, until you give it away, what a time to give your gift to another that all may be blessed and edified.

One day at a time – December 28, 2013


My children, you must only take one day at a time. Do not lose hope and be disheartened. Focus on today only, you do not know about tomorrow or what the future will hold because tomorrow will be another day with its own things. Leave yesterday and your past behind you, or it will only hinder your walk with Me and stop you from progressing.

Many of you wonder about too many things. Things did not work out the way that you thought or wanted because My ways are not your ways and My thoughts are not your thoughts and My time is not your time but I know best. Do not be disappointed. I work all things out for good at My time, according to My plan and purpose. I know the end from the beginning. I know My plan and purpose for each one, it is good. It is not to harm you but to build you up. Believe and trust Me with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding of how you think or want things to work out. Learn that valuable lesson or you will be disappointed. Take one day at a time only and follow Me, My way and do My will for that day.


Yield to My Spirit, I will guide and lead you every step of My way, one day at a time and one step at a time. You cannot lag behind or try to go ahead of Me. I go before you to show you the way, to make the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth. I will open doors for you as I wish. Do not lose hope or give up on Me and My Kingdom then it will all be in vain. Endure and stay on course. Follow Me, one day at a time. I will not let you down. Let Me have My way.

Ecc 7:25 I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:

Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Rom 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

Rom 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

I was doing my end of year recap, current events, news clips, etc. After I had spent several hours working on this long article, the lord said by his word the text verses in ECC. 'Stop!, Forget it ! Vanity ! Do not post ! Because you do not know !.'
Well........... there I looked at all my research, writing and said, Hmmmm, now that was a waist of time, now what.?

Like many sermons, the lord will, as I get behind the pulpit, change the message 100%, so I have learned to stop, and listen to the small still voice and simply obey.

I will give what the lord gave me.

2014, will it be yet another year of guessing, research, listening to news, You tube predictions, prophecy from false prophets? Will it be a waist of another year in worry, that soon all will be gone, changed for ever, and when? In my first book back in 2010 posted in 2011, still a great read, still full of truth, but I missed it, no famine in 2011 in America, every year since than, via the Ayin series, prophecy in the news, current events, prophetic words, sermons, I do keep getting Judgment, this has not changed, but what do I, or you do with this information, this foretelling by grace.

I speak to real Christians not the UN-saved. What do we do with this? Spend another year waiting, looking, seeking, thinking we cracked a code, or whatever. Vanity, of vanities, Romans says in the text, the truth, read it. Taking that part of Romans we are told, forget about it and why? verse 36;

Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

We read, HIM, HIM, HIM, WHOM, four times , one verse, HIM, it is all HIM, in him, we live, breath, our going out and coming in are all HIM. We do not really know a darn thing. Paul said, I will preach Jesus, I will know nothing, but Jesus Christ and him crucified, back to the bible, back to prayer, back to living, one day at a time, and why? Him-God-Our LORD, has it ALL under control.

Do not waist time in 2014 in worry, fear, and such, make every breath count, make every day count, you and I are on this planet for a reason, we see the warning signs, we know whats happening, as far as the big pitcher , but so much we do not know, we can get hung up on what we do not know and chase a million rabbit holes. Redeem the time wisely, for the days are evil. Hard times are coming, but what do we do until it all hits the fan?

Get back to our first love, serve others, help, pray, read, worship. I am not saying become a head in sand christian, I am saying in faith be a make your stand Christian, make your stand and make it count for something, you are called for such a time as this, but what are you doing today? Think on this

A Message From December 2012, Still A Great Message-Condemnation or Repentance- The Word Repent A Deeper Look, It Is Good News



I have written, and preached some strong words, I have said before, it is not legalism, condemnation, judgment, but conviction, I hope. I preached and just posted my last message about comfort, a voice in the wilderness and the poor, It was a hard word, but at times there must be a hard word, I am not out to make friend's, to be popular, or even liked, my call is to preach in boldness the truth of the bible. This was the norm many years ago, now it is looked down upon, by liberal thinking, well meaning Christians that are big on love, unity, separate beliefs, I understand that, but the word does not change. The word cuts like a knife for a reason, and believe it or not it is part of the Good News, Repent, repent, repent, is step one in the good news, you have to swallow a bitter pill before the honey of spiritual blessing flows form your life.

We all make mistakes, I am no more than a sinner, like you, saved by grace, but a mouth piece for the lord, I have yielded myself and it has come with a high price tag. ( for all that choose to live Godly in Christ Jesus WILL suffer persecution).


The condemnation, hell, issue is never the lords intent in a hard message, it is always to lead someone to, or back to the real true path.

The lord wills that all men would be saved, the son of man came not to destroy men, but save mens lives, part of this is by the word of the lord read, or heard preached under the anointing and conviction. In EZEK ch 3 and CH 33 , we read the whole deal, the way it all works, read those chapters and you will understand where I am coming from, and others who preach and teach truth.

To the sinner, seeker, Jesus was kind, to the Pharisee, as our modern day Christian can be called, (some not all), but most. Jesus spoke very hard, to those, and thus I do to Christians because they claim to know the truth and confess Jesus, but do not do the things he said.

I will give you an example of why I called the hate of the poor an abomination to the lord, as I know some disagreed with that, well we have the word on this matter.

Eze 18:12 
Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination,

Eze 18:13 
Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

The poor, being mistreated is listed right in there with idolatry and other sins, and it is called an abomination.

The lord speaks hard sometimes to try and reach those that confess his name, but do not walk the walk, in this same chapter you will see the heart of the lord, he wants all to be made restored, all to come back to their first love, all to be made clean.

Eze 18:22  All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

Eze 18:23  Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

Did you get that part, it is good news, not bad news, not condemnation, Eze 18:22 
All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him:

Yes, as far as the east to the west, this is the heart of the lord in a hard word, in a warning, so a seed of good news and restoration can be planted and watered. EZEK has a few more verses in this chapter, read it all, it is very much like ch 3 and 33 it shows the loving father heart of our lord.

Eze 18:27  Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.

Eze 18:28  Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

Eze 18:30  Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

Eze 18:31  Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

Eze 18:32  For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

Our loving father is not sadistic, many say, ' how could a loving God allow all this,  the suffering of children, the death of the innocent, good people being sick unto death" it is the fall of Adam that caused this, also the stuff sprayed on us, what we eat, pollution the list goes on, man made death, not the heart of a loving father.

Next time when you hear a strong word from me, or another servant , consider this, it is a call, it is our job and
it is the job of all to warn. The lord has no pleasure in death, no pleasure in the Judgments being poured out, no pleasure in the death of America, no please at all. It is a hard word indeed, but looking beyond , or deeper into hard words , as I have been  showing in this Chapter, you will see the Good news, you will see the love of the father.

Heb 12:5  And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

Heb 12:6  For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Heb 12:7  If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Heb 12:8  But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Do you see the message, those who the lord loves he Chastises, it is the love of the lord, it is part of the Good news, and as I wrote, the good news starts with the word repent, coming  back to the lord starts with the word repent, being restored starts with the word repent, and thus the word repent is the good news, we have the chance by the blood of Christ to repent, that is good news and to go from death to life, by Jesus blood, by repentance, and sometimes it comes by  a strong word. That is the Good News

Peters Ghost-Message From 2-11-12

Act 12:1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.

Act 12:2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

Act 12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

Act 12:4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

Act 12:5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

Clarke:

Acts 12:5

Prayer was made without ceasing - The Greek word εκτενης signifies both fervor and earnestness, as well as perseverance. These prayers of the Church produced that miraculous interference mentioned below, and without which Peter could not have thus escaped from the hands of this ruthless king.


JFB:

prayer was made without ceasing — rather, “instant,” “earnest,” “urgent



Act 12:6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

Act 12:7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

Act 12:8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

Act 12:9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

Act 12:10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

Act 12:11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

Act 12:12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.

Act 12:13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.

Act 12:14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.

Act 12:15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.

Act 12:16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.

Wesley;

Continual prayer was made for him - Yet when their prayer was answered, they could scarce believe it, Act_12:15. But why had they not prayed for St. James also? Because he was put to death as soon as apprehended.

Wesley cont.

Acts 12:15
They said, Thou art mad - As we say, Sure you are not in your senses to talk so. It is his angel - It was a common opinion among the Jews, that every man had his particular guardian angel, who frequently assumed both his shape and voice. But this is a point on which the Scriptures are silent.

The true since, aside from the superstitions that Wesley brought out is better stated by JFB, Peters Ghost.

that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel — his disembodied spirit, his ghost; anything, in fact, rather than himself. Though this had been the burden of their fervent prayers during all the days of unleavened bread, they dispute themselves out of it as a thing incredible. Still, it is but the unbelief of the disciples who “believed not for joy and wondered” at the tidings of their Lord’s resurrection. How often do we pray for what we can hardly credit the bestowment of, when it comes in answer to our prayers! This, however, argues not so much hard unbelief as that kind of it incident to the best in this land of shadows, which perceives not so clearly as it might how very near heaven and earth, the Lord and His praying people, are to each other.

JFB is the crux of this message Peters Ghost, no matter how hard, earnest, long or loud, many times we are praying with no faith, it is odd, one would think such a Holy Ghost prayer filled meeting would have made them know it was a done deal, the lord would hear, yet, they did not believe as when Jesus showed up at the resurrection they wondered at it in unbelief, these men and women, like us, are all people of like passions, as Elijah prayed and the rain stopped being a man of like passions, meaning a normal man like anyone else, his call and miracles mighty, were all the lords doing, In James ch 5 we read this if any are sick , call the elders and pray the prayer of Faith anointing with oil and they shall be healed.

Mountain moving faith starts with mustard seed faith, Jesus said if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds, once planted grows to be the biggest herb in the garden, so large that birds fly into them for rest and find shade shade, our faith is like this, we must start somewhere, a mustard seed is still faith and will grow to mountain moving faith.

These leaders should have known better, one would think, but they to were people like me and you of like passions, at times praying so hard and not honestly believing anything will happen.


We are all guilty of this at times. The disciples were constantly rebuke by Christ, he even marveled at their unbelief and lack of faith, they were seeing Jesus do mighty miracles first handed, eye witnesses, and they still had a lack of faith, that was before ACT 2 when they were filled wit the spirit, one would think, they, now spirit filled and now people of Faith would believe their earnest long prayers continuing on through the night would have a result.

The prayers indeed helped Peter, but not them the ones in prayer, they simply could not believe their prayer was answered and Peter stood at the door alive, all but the girl, a young women Rhoda, only she truly had faith, young people sometimes are like this, child like faith produces expectation it manifests in pray answered and things happen, as God is, we do not have faith in faith we are told to have faith in God.

This is why we are told to have child like faith, this and having a heavenly perspective are a must for all esp. SR saints. We in our maturity start to strain gnats and swallow camels. Somewhere along the line we lost the simplicity of Christ, His teachings, we may have been let down, or have not gotten an answer to prayers and so, one brick at a time our wall comes down and we are left as a prayer-less, faithless people, going through the Actions of faithfulness in the word and prayer, we forget to every action, there is a reaction.

We are often guilty of praying and honestly not believing our prayer will be answered, this unbelief must be repented of, dealt with, so we can get back on track, praying in fervent humble prayer and like a child, simply expecting our loving heavenly Father to give us our requests, ye have not, because ye ask not, or you ask and you expect to see your Peters Ghost of unbelief and not your Peter of expectation and answered prayer.

Hay I hear a knock at the door, I thinks its my Peter, I have to go. LOL.
