The Deeper Walk- When The Rivers Run In Your Heart

Eze 47:3  And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.

Eze 47:4  Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.

Eze 47:5  Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.

He who has ears to hear and eyes to see, let him hear what the spirit of the lord is saying. In this text verse, there are many insights and revelations.
As Meyers says below, we have a key insight, when the rivers rise in your heart.

 Jesus said, living waters shall flow out of your belly, but it starts in the heart. The spiritual life, experience, learning, and growth all start in the heart and mind. A plant will not grow with out proper watering, as I am learning, some plants need only a little water, desert plants, cactus, it has needles that hurt, stinging nettle, drought tolerant weed, tall and an excellent healing herb, but brush against it and it feels like a thousand bee stings, I know I have felt its pain. This teaches me that a dry Christian can be a prickly one, a stinging one. These plants are found in dry places, dry desert wildernesses, for the most, are you a cactus stinging nettle, full of bad thoughts, spiritually dead, full of gossip, and self pity? Think on this

 Plants that are the most beautiful, and good for us, like crops, need a lot of water to grow. Life needs this life giving water Jesus offers to grow, it takes the scales of unbelief off our eyes, it allows us to see the unseen, and believe in what has not yet happened.

We get deeper in the things of the lord, the further we go into the ways of the lord. The progression will take us to a place that cannot be passed, the full glory of the lord. No man has seen Jehovah , the flesh would die in the presence off his holiness, we need glorified bodies, and so we can only go so far while on earth, in glory we will see and know Him, as we will be known, we will be in the very presence, and for the first time we will see the glorified Messiah and the lord Jehovah himself.

Lets us think about where we are at, right now , are we satisfied with stale bread, are we satisfied with normality, safety, security and our religious observation and duty? If so, we will make it to heaven, maybe, but on earth, it will be a dull, lifeless way of Christianity. The lord has so much more for us, many more revelations, many more manifestations of his love, grace, glory, joy, peace, power. It is going deeper in to the things of the lord, by this I do not mean mystical Christianity, I mean, deeper in the word, deeper in prayer and worship, deeper in service, deeper in self denial, and carrying our cross, deeper in suffering and deeper in the power of the resurrection.

The lord wants us to be deep wells, not broken cisterns that can hold no water. Many are broken cisterns, maybe life has handed you a bad deck of cards to deal with, maybe your life was very bad, and sad, but in Jesus, all things become new, ALL THINGS. We can have eyes that have seen the king, high and lifted up, we can have the living water flowing in and over us, it is for today, it waters your dryness, the dry spiritual life many have. There is so much more, we can go, from glory to glory and from faith to faith, this alone is a deep insight, going from glory to glory.

I tell you now, there are some reading this today, you are ankle deep, but there is more, all you have to do is ask, next all you have to do is walk forward, there is no great mystery in the deepness of the lord, forget what is behind, look ahead and move on, move in, and move out . And you will see, feel, know, understand, the riches that were bought for us at the cross, and at the resurrection of our lord.

Let us never be satisfied with our current spiritual state, no matter how great, and powerful, cry out for more of the lord, more insight to His word, more ministries to others, let us cry out for more of the lord’s presence. Beloved, that is all he is waiting for, intimacy with him; let us not hear his voice say, I miss my time with you. Rather let us stand at the throne and say, Hear am I lord send me, hear am I lord fill me, hear I am lord use me, hear am I lord, make your gory manifest to day
 As the deer pants after the water brook, so my heart pants after you O' lord.

We just read the key, the heart, that is the seat of our emotions, feelings, we must let the small still voice that speaks to our heart have His way, then we will see a brand new day, one filled with his glory, His power, His peace, His power

IN THIS wonderful chapter in Ezekiel the influence of restored Israel is compared to a life-giving stream issuing from the Divine dwelling-Place (Eze_47:1). When the waters rise in the heart, they flow out, as our Lord promised, in ever-deepening, widening rivers of blessing to mankind (Joh_4:14; Joh_7:37-39). The ankles may mean the steps of daily life; the knees our prayers and intercessions; the loins our affections and passions. Our influence for God should perpetually deepen and extend. In every life, there must be the unfathomable depth of fellowship with God--"a river that cannot be passed" (Eze_47:5).

Pray That You May Be Found Worth To Escape All These Things

Luk 21:36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

This is one of the most perplexing verses in bible prophecy. I have been thinking on it, writing on it, pondering, and meditating on it, doing detailed studies on just this verse, and so let us take a deeper look at this one profound verse concerning the tribulation.

First what is hard to understand, is the word worthy, pray that you may be found worthy... I have given messages on just that one word worth, in the N.T. we learn, no one is worthy, we are only worthy by the blood of Christ, we are only righteous , by the blood of Christ, so why , if we are a true believer would we need to pray that we would be found worthy, to escape the tribulation, while being on the earth, and how would one escape?

Lets first look at what the old commentaries say, the ones written, before the Rapture doctrine was promoted and accepted.


Luke 21:36
Watch ye therefore - This is the general conclusion of all that precedes. That ye may be counted worthy - This word sometimes signifies an honour conferred on a person, as when the apostles are said to be counted worthy to suffer shame for Christ, Act_5:41. Sometimes meet or becoming: as when John the Baptist exhorts, to bring fruits worthy of repentance, Luk_3:8. Therefore, to be counted worthy to escape is to have the honor of it, and to be fitted or prepared for it. To stand - With joy and triumph: not to fall before him as his enemies.

From this we understand, it is a general word and exhortation to stand firm and steady and always be watching, so it is not directed to one who is the real deal, yet we can fall from grace, we can lose our salvation, confused, so am I. It is an exhortation to all to be found praying, watching, living the life of faith, living a God pleasing life. Maturing more and more into the image of Christ.

I said before, it is not a cop out to Pray that you may escape these things, or why would Jesus say we should pray for it, if it was against his will, and not possible? One would not pray to escape out of fear, or being a cowered, as Wesley points out, but out of faith, we die for Christ , it is an honor, it is an honor to be counted worthy to suffer shame for Christ, that is key, suffer shame FOR CHRIST, not an issue, not in an uprising and losing your life because you picked up a sword, and you die, no, the only way, reason if we have a chance, is to  make a decision ,  to die for Christ, to die for the cause of Christ, the gospel.

To be fitted, or prepared for it. To stand - With joy and triumph: not to fall before him as his enemies.

We are to be fitted , prepared for it, I believe that is why so many of his true people are going through so much right now, because we are being prepared for the last days, we are being fitting for our joy and triumph, faith to over come, it takes hard times, and it takes being broken, praying with hot tears, and not a casual Christian walk, but one of peace, power, faith and the shout of Triumph.


Luke 21:36

Watch ye therefore, and pray always - Perhaps we should connect ες παντι καιρῳ, continually, with αγρυπνειτε, watch, as it appears to be the most natural order. Indeed the word continually belongs equally to both watch and pray; and no man is safe, at any time, who does not attend to this advice as literally as possible.

That shall come to pass - That is, the tribulations, which are on their way to overwhelm and destroy the Jewish people. These are sufficiently stated in the preceding verses.

While it is true, the preceding verses, in context are talking about Jerusalem, no doubt, and what the Jewish people will face and go through. All bible prophecy does center around Israel, fact. It is the prophetic time watch, the chosen people, also at the time this was said, it was a gospel to be given to the Jews only, Jesus came , his whole ministry was to the Jews, and only the Jews. It was not until Paul came on the scene, and was the apostle to the gentiles.

The O.T. prophecy as far back as Genesis, told to Abraham, all nations would come to the lord, many O.T. prophetical books speak about the gospel dispensation, when a day would come that the Gentiles would be called, saved. To the Jew first, it was later in Revelations the lord speaks clear about Gentiles in heaven, every language and all nations on earth are found in heaven, but Jesus had to preach to the chosen first, after the rejection, and this is the reason we Gentiles were saved, than we are one with the Jews. We are now a chosen people, a royal priesthood, and of ALL  believers.

Paul clearly teaches in the N.T. dispensation, there is now no difference between Jew and Greek ( Gentile )

The way to debunk the Rapture doctrine is starting with one core belief they have, the elect.  they teach the elect in the N.T. is the Jews, this is not true, the elect of God, Paul said this to Gentiles as well and in Greek or Hebrew, the word elect means chosen, appointed called out, etc. that is every Christian, so to deal with that core belief that was taught, is where you must start , and than you will understand it is false.

Webster On the word Elect:

3. In theology, to designate, choose or select as an object of mercy or favor.

4. To choose; to prefer; to determine in favor of.

ELECT', a. Chosen, taken by preference from among two or more. Hence,

1. In theology, chosen as the object of mercy; chosen, selected or designated to eternal life; predestinated in the divine counsels.

2. Chosen, but no inaugurated, consecrated or invested with office; as bishop elect; emperor elect; governor or mayor elect. But in the scriptures, and in theology, this word is generally used as a noun.

ELECT', n. One chosen or set apart; applied to Christ.

Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth. Isa 42.

1. Chosen or designated by God to salvation; predestinated to glory as the end, and to sanctification as the means; usually with a plural signification, the elect.

Shall not God avenge his own elect? Luke 18.

If it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Mat 24.

He shall send his angels--and they shall gather his elect from the four winds. Mat 24.

2. Chosen; selected; set apart as a peculiar church and people; applied to the Israelites. Isa 45.

Calvin, and  Presbyterians make a man made doctrine out of the theology of Predestination. They really twist it, but the bible clearly teaches the doctrine of predestination, we must take what the bible says about it, with the free will verses and keep it as the bible teaches and not man.

The lord wills that all men might me saved, this and other verses, teach free will, we are all willed, destined for heaven, but the lord allows us to chose, chose this day whom you will serve, he never forces anyone to be saved, but the all-knowing lord, already knows who will be in glory , who will not, and what gifts he will call one to. We read in the O.T. many of the prophets said they were called to be a prophet while they were still in their mothers womb.

Example, the lord predestined me to do what I am doing, this I know, I have slipped, fallen away at times, but as David says,’ if a righteous man falls a thousand times, the lord will pick him up’, so never give up, even if you fell away, or stopped praying for a while, you will, if God wills come back, be restored and he knows all.

1. Chosen or designated by God to salvation; predestinated to glory as the end, and to sanctification as the means; usually with a plural signification, the elect.

We have to make a choice to stay steady, watch and pray and stay close to Jesus, and relie on him 100% if we do not, we will fall from Grace, so if we remain faithful, or return in time, before we die, we will be in glory.

In revelations, when John saw the souls of the Martyrs under the alter crying out, ‘how long O' lord till you vindicate our blood’, the lord answered, ‘rest a while, and wait until those who have been appointed to also be martyred as you have’, so some are appointed to martyrdom, yes appointed, called, predestined, others are called to escape, we do not know, I do not want to know, do you? I have said , no one can prepare for martyrdom, you can not prepare to die, can you, we would lose it, let it come, and when it does for those called to it, at the time, not before, a very special grace is given to enable you to go through it. I can prove this point with two verse’s in this chapter.

Luk 21:14  Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

Luk 21:15  For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

There it is, how can anyone refute this advice, we are not to meditate, think what we will say, at the time, not before, the holy spirit will fill our mouth as we yell Freedom as in Brave heart , it will turn out as a testimony, for they over came the devil , by the blood of the lamb, and the word of their testimony, you see the bible teaches sound doctrine, if we stay with the word of the lord and not the twisted theology and teachings of man and denominations, amen.

To pray  that you may be found worthy to escape the Tribulation events, is a matter of watching and praying, being on your guard that you do not fall in to deception, false doctrine, and the lies of the Antichrist, but in your patience posses ye your souls.

This is why the lord has a holy Remnant, a chosen people, the ones who are in for the long haul, and faithful unto death, that is what I mean when I always say a remnant, it is simply, true bible believers, in sound doctrine, walking in the image of Christ, we are made such by many trials, tests, tribulations, we are made the remnant , true Christians, not a matter of denomination, but true bible believers. We have theological differences, but if you are a real Christian, and read the word, are in sound bible doctrine, that is the trained remnant, the last day army for the lord, so are you in, think on this

Lift Up Your Voice- Speak Comfort To The Lords People- A Powerful Day And Word

Isa 40:1  Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

Isa 40:2  Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins.

Isa 40:3  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Isa 40:4  Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

Isa 40:9  O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!


Isaiah 40:1-8

 the Cry of Jehovah’s Herald


Voices are ever speaking to us from the infinite; let us heed them.
(1.) There is the voice of forgiveness, Isa_40:2. Are you truly penitent? Have you put away your sin? Have you meekly accepted the chastening rod? Then be of good cheer, this promise is for you. The time of hard service as a conscript (the literal rendering) is accomplished, your iniquity is pardoned, you have received double for all your sins. God speaks comfortably to your heart, that you may be able to comfort others as He does you, 2Co_1:4.

 (2.) The voice of deliverance, Isa_40:3-4. Between Babylon and Canaan lay a great desert of thirty days’ journey with mountain ranges, yawning gulfs. But when God arises to deliver His children, “who cry day and night unto Him,” crooked places straighten out, rough ones become smooth, and mountains disappear.

(3.) The voices of decay, Isa_40:6-8. The one herald, speaking from his observation of human mortality, describes man and his glory as the “flower of the field.” But in contrast to this, another voice seems to break in with the eternal word of God, which stands forever. The precepts, promises, and invitations of the gospel are as sure as God’s throne, 1Pe_1:25.


Lift up thy voice - As with a glad and important message. Do not deliver the message as if you were afraid that it should be heard. It is one of joy; and it should be delivered in a clear, decided, animated manner, as if it were important that it should be heard.   ( Note, an animated manner and Barns is not full gospel wow)

With strength - Aloud; with effort; with power (compare Isa_35:3-4).

I know Barnes is not full gospel, but the old, old commentaries, the old saints of God, full gospel or not had something the modern non-full gospel ones do not posses today.

mountain — It was customary for those who were about to promulgate any great thing, to ascend a hill from which they could be seen and heard by all (Jdg_9:7; Mat_5:1).

be not afraid — to announce to the exiles that their coming return home is attended with danger in the midst of the Babylonians. The gospel minister must “open his mouth boldly” (Pro_29:25; Eph_6:19).

Behold — especially at His second coming (Zec_12:10; Zec_14:5).

Act 2:14  But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:


get thee up into the high mountain; to declare these good tidings, in the most open and public manner, that all might hear and receive them, and rejoice at them; it may also point at the place, the church of God, comparable to a high mountain for its visibility and immovableness, where the Gospel is to be published:

lift it up, and be not afraid; of the reproaches and revilings of men on account of it, or of their persecutions for it; or lest it should not be welcome, or be received as truth:

Gill, another great old non full gospel commentary says it like it is, if you do not go public, be open, out in the open and declare, even when your scoffed at, if you do not do it this way, it will not be taken as , nor received as truth, that is a deep truth and revelation, thanks Gill.

2Co 1:4  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

2Co 1:5  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

Hebrew : thy voice

קל    קול
qôl  qôl
kole, kole
From an unused root meaning to call aloud; a voice or sound: -  + aloud, bleating, crackling, cry (+ out), fame, lightness, lowing, noise, + hold peace, [pro-] claim, proclamation, + sing, sound, + spark, thunder (-ing), voice, + yell.

Well that is a true confirmation, from the Hebrew word, I love that part at the end, spark, thunder, voice and YELL, glory, and it is there. That spark is what will do it, you can not have a fire with out first having a spark, so this message starts with the spark, the praise, shout was the spark, and now a holy fire is burning.

Hebrew: With strength

כּוח    כּח
kôach  kôach
ko'-akh, ko'-akh
From an unused root meaning to be firm; vigor, literally (force, in a good or a bad sense) or figuratively (capacity, means, produce); also (from its hardiness) a large lizard: - ability, able, chameleon, force, fruits, might, power (-ful), strength, substance, wealth.

The last prophecy the lord gave, was short, it said we need to shout again, that word was to me, and so I obeyed, my wife and me took a walk and stopped at an abandon gas station, and stared to shout, and I mean shout, very loud, praising the lord, as we did words came forth, deliverance and what a day it has been.

 The lord reminded me of the walls of Jericho falling after with a shout. Then we prayed aloud, for those few on our prayer list, after, the lord said to us many words, and the text verses came up on e-sword, another word, I have ready to post from Ezra, about the building of the temple , the hassle they had to put up with, in came Haggai, and Zachariah, it spoke a confirmation, later while I was napping, my wife got Haggai CH 1, and she does not even know I just did a word on that. A few other confirmations, the lord confirmed this word many times, because he knows I would say, this is to good to be true, this must be my flesh, my emotions, but events today showed us , it was indeed the lord speaking.

So many good words, in power, Pentecostal power, the Holy Spirit fell on us in might and power. I will say one thing the lord said, ‘the walls are coming down, shout, shout, the walls are coming down, the years of your hard labor are over, victory is in the now, I am going to move, I am going to provide, I am going to proclaim through you both my word, in a fresh anointing, with signs following’.

We were so on fire for the lord, is lasted several hours, we were walking down the Main St, shouting, praising, clapping our hands, saying lord bring some one in our path that we may minister to, he did, and out in public we prayed and glory fell, we made it to the post office, our daily walk and routine, it was far from the same old, same old today, the lord said he would provide, things are going to change and his glory will be reveled right where we are.

The lord did provide today, as many know we have nothing, it is the end of the month, I always get concerned at the end of the month esp. after the 2010 word, and in March. Well, I was thinking the other day, what do we do to pay our gas bill lord and other things?

We got our gas bill today and I was still shouting inside, we shouted all the way home, and after we got home, my wife opened the bill, we were still shouting not as loud, were not crazy, she said, ‘O my you have to see this’, she handed me the bill and I was speechless, we had almost a 300.00 credit, that is one full year we will not have any concern about our gas bill. It was at this time, appointed by the lord, to show us, what he said was from him not us, the bill said we had this large credit , because it has been a year, that alone blew my mind, ,I had no idea we have been in this place a year, time goes by fast when your being purged. I guess it was a refund of our down payment with interest and so bill be gone.

Do not think it was about the refund, the money, we were shouting with the bill we cared not, so what it is not a marital thing that made us shout, as that word came way after we started, and it was a direct sign the lord spoke and not our flesh, so amen.

It has been a day of holy thunder, we prayed and prayed for others, that is key, and we praised the lord, and had an open air prayer meeting, not a quiet one, and not a show, it was the lord, not many heard it anyway, (not in the middle of no where), but the lord did, and the sister we prayed over, she was deeply moved and she shouted, wow. A non-Full Gospel woman was so moved she became full gospel in pray and said, ‘this is what I want’. PTL.

My message, it was a word, we obeyed and something happened that was real and from heaven, a breath of fresh air, after over 4 years of living hell.
And with my wife by my side, restored and a prayer partner again, one that is not just standing there in resistants, as before, but participated and was changed before my eyes, she fell on her knees when we were at the old gas station and said, ‘Ok lord, what ever you want, I pour my self will out, I accept what ever you have’, this has been 4 years in the making and no small deal, that is called a great awaking, and all from a shout, a shout started it all. Also, it was a worker , I have been doing all the ministry by self, she wanted no part of it, so it is two now not just one, and today, the lord sent a helper, more will come.

I still do not have even a razor hence why of late you see facial hair, when we say we have nothing I mean it, nothing, no clean cloths, no razors, no way to pay our rent or electric as of yet, and only days to go. However, I know that I know after today, after the prophecy and today’s word, the lord will provide, we had what is called a break through.

I am saying all this as a witness for a reason. Dear reader that word was not just for us, the walls of your Jericho is coming down, with a loud holy shout of victory, it happened to us, it can happen to you.

Love filled our hearts, we wanted to speak comfort to others as Paul said, because we were just comforted and renewed, we needed it, this is worth more than silver and gold, you can not buy it, you can not work it up in the flesh, it must be spontaneous and from the heart, comfort, speak comfort to my people, TO MY PEOPLE, not the world, the holy chosen ones, the real deal Christians, we are about to see dramatic events happen, I feel this event and word, is as was told, we will shout and praise right in the middle of all the world falling apart, I see and understand now, what a lesson.

The word also said lift up your voice, be not afraid, and on a high place, glory to the lord, a high place, so others can hear, as when Paul and Silas were in prison , about midnight, in chains, started to sing aloud the praise of the lord, the prisoners heard it and the result, the place was shaken, they were delivered and all heard the high praise before the doors crashed open, that is key, do not be a false Christian who wants to be heard with long prays but meaningful, high praise, it is the power that ignites a holy fire, and this is what turns a world up side down. 

Just the two of us, and the lord started today to truly turn this place upside down, it will grow, a holy fire grows and does power work, things we could never do, we can do nothing, but the power of the holy spirit can, and will, dear reader are you getting this word, are you understanding what I am trying to say? I pray so, it is real, it is for today, and do not be afraid to lift up your voice, amen, it works, a small seemingly little word about shouting, obedience and BANG, it came like in acts Ch 2, we had a real acts Ch. 2 experience today and so can you.

Right after Passover, please lift her up, also her father may not live, her and her husband brother Jay, had a chance to pray over her dad, but need prayer he makes a confession for Messiah.

A Vow Of NO Silence- Music Video And A Prophetic Word-It Is Time To Shout

Psa 47:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

Our Last Church Charter, Years ago was called, ‘Shout Of Triumph Ministries’
They were days of thunder, outpourings, manifestation, glory, many souls saved, devils cast out, radical out reach, street preaching and so forth. I was listening to the song A Vow Of NO Silence, I have posted it two times, this is the third re- post.  I feel personally it is my best contemporary Christian song to date. I have a few great ones just waiting for a vox track and lyrics. The new CD, all music is done, the title ‘Smile In The Storm’. I feel this will be my last CD. I just feel it, I always compose music, but I feel this will be my last one, only the lord knows, it will be out soon, and free to download.

The old Ministry name, the song, and than the word of the lord came as I pondered .

The Lord says, ‘ My people, times are hard, my beloved bride is under attack, I see and I know all, I know what you are going through, It has all been planned so worry not, I have a question for my bride, when is the last time you given a holy shout, not one of emotions, but one of victory, it is time to shout again, lift up your voice, and shout, shout as never before, the shout of war, and the shout of victory, Shout, Shout my people, you forget you have much to shout about, I am king of kings, I am in control, many are depressed, let down, in defeat, I want you to over come the world, over come the evil one, I want you right now to shout as never before, shout with the voice of Triumph, yes shout out, loud with the voice of triumph.’ This is the word of the lord.

There are new visitors everyday, and some faithful new daily readers that may have never seen this video, or even heard the music I do, so it is a powerful witness tool, and it is a time reader to no longer be silent, but boldly proclaim with a shout , Jesus is lord of lords.

Note; In The Video I used a couple old ministry pitchers I have, I have left behind, all over the country many things, some in storage all over the USA . One pitcher shows me and my life long best friend Ron Either, He is now on O.K. State, the pitcher of us holding up the cross we used to take out to the streets, we had a large staff of helpers, and we turned Woonsocket, Rhode Island Up side down, you need others. The day of harvest was the name of the two F.T. coffee house ministries I founded and directed Ron was my out reach coordinator, and co- founder. We never put the ministry name on the cross when we were out doors, it was all about Jesus, I just made a paper sign for the pitcher, it was just after I became the F.T. minister at the Methodist Church in Woonsocket R.I. as we did not have a Methodist minister over a year, so I was asked to preach three times a week. Another pitcher is a room with a bunch of Hispanic youth, in Fresno CA, we had a home church and street ministry, most of the kids parents were a part of the gang called the Bull Dogs, so we had our backs covered, and were the only white people in the ghetto we lived in.

One pitcher of my son Nick that lives with us he is standing with his arms crossed he has a tattoo, that is my boy, I placed it in the video at the time for impact as I say, I was convicted about my silence, than I show my boy, for personal reasons, but that is him, he looks the same, boy I laugh every time I look at the pitcher of Me and Ron with the cross, man time goes by fast, I was a young lad, but a F.T. Coffee house diretcor, F.T. preacher and Evangelist and P.T. Music ministry and prison ministry. I was like Apollos in the N.T. Man I knew so little, I just was on fire for God and hit the streets , preached boldly, but I had much to learn, as Apollos did, he was preaching and refuting the Jews in might and power, but he needed instruction, so he was taken in and given more details about the Gospel and Jesus by Priscilla and Aquila, They did not quench his spirit, they just gave instruction, now days when men try and instruct they quench your spirit, this should not be the case.

I am still learning, every single day, I have made so many mistakes, but after all these years, I forge ahead and keep preaching and teaching the Gospel of Christ, amen, it is all we can do, try and try again, until we are perfected in glory. I thought I would just share some of that, I do not live in the past, but with my anguish for others, it made me weep, because it really does take others, and help to turn a place up side down for Christ.

Mal-treatment Of The Poor Christian- A Strong Word, And Comfort For The Poor Remnant Christians World-Wide

I preached a hard word on this, not long ago. I said I was seeing a trend that was happening in the churches, an absolute hate for the poor, not the poor of the world, but poor in the church, this is nothing new, it has always been in the house of the lord, but it is not the heart of our lord.

The O.T. says,

Deu 15:7  If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother:

Deu 15:8  But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.

Deu 15:9  Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee.

Deu 15:10  Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.

Deu 15:11  For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.

Jesus said the same thing, the poor, you shall always have with you, the book of James speaks a hard word of correction on this issue, that invaded  the church. The rich looking down  on the poor. Just because it is nothing new, does not mean it is OK. I was re- watching the Ravenhill short video that is posted, and he said, some of the most Godly saints only have one shirt, how did it become so bad in America?

Thanks to network news, neo-cons, it is a divide and conquer issue. The facts have been shown, we now have the widest gap in America, of rich and poor, this is also true in the Church, we can expect the world to act in pride, but the church, measuring a man by what he has, drives, puts on, owns. The lord hates this looking down, mal- treatment of his poor precious ones.

In India and other places, there has always been a cast society, but they are a non-Christian nation. America, once had a great burden for the poor, mostly because before Christian T.V. most real bible preachers were poor, the ministry was there full time call, not a vocation, but a life long call.

I was told , and it matters not, as words do not move me, the person ('s) said you are not self sustained, but I am. It is very sad if anyone thinks this way and looks down on a Christian. Fox News is the worse at assimilating this non Christian attitude, why is it almost all Christians watch Fox news? The spin, Rupert Murdock, a pure evil man, and one that wants to user in the new world order, owns Fox news, it is chosen by Christians, because they come across as conservative, and the other news channels liberal, the dog and pony show, of network news, there is no difference at all between political parties, they are ALL just puppets for the New world order, the bankers, large corporations.

I have tried to wake up many people to this fact, the ones who swear by WND ( world net daily ) a site that is a tool to cause more of this divide and conquer. So many still believe there is a difference in political parties; they are now, one and the same.

I do not like politics, I hate talking about it, and my point is… this is the root of this evil spirit that has invaded the church. T.V. Christianity and mega churches as well. Soon all these will be gone, and once again, it will be a level playing field for all, than what? This is in no way a thing that bothers me, being poor, I speak, truth, and the truth is the American Christians , for the most despise the poor Christians, many churches now require a 20% tithe, and tithing is O.T. law not N.T. grace.

When Jesus was sitting near the place where the people were putting in their offerings at the temple, he said of the women that put a couple pennies in the offering plate,’ she has given more than them all, the others gave out of their abundance, but she has given her all’, that is the key message, giving the lord our all, our life, his plans for us, and acceptance of our ordained lot in life. We must look at ourselves and ask, am I frowning on the poor, do I look down on them, are they made to feel lower, are they told, you take the back seat, and let us take the front seats, look if that is you, Repent.

The love of money is the root of all evil, it causes pride, and pride is the original sin, our lord hates pride, he hates the proud, pride is of the devil.

We are told both in the N.T. and O.T. not to even fellowship with those who are proud, you know who they are, many think they can hide it, but it is very noticeable, you need not judge them, it is so obvious it stinks, it is smoke in the lords nostrils.

There are readers from all over the world on this site, many are in dire poverty, a poverty most poor Americans could not understand, so to those precious ones, the readers in places where they are in dire poverty, who are looked down by all in their countries, I want to encourage you and say, the lord loves you. King David said in the psalms many times, ‘the lord hears the cry of the poor, his poor’.

Silver and gold have I none, the American church can no longer say that, today, but very soon, with an economic collapse right around the corner, it will change everything. Lazarus and the rich man, re- read that Parable and think, this beloved one of the lord, had to beg or starve, he had wounds so bad, the dogs licked them, talk about poor, destitute, these precious ones are still with us.

 This is why we are told to entertain strangers, for some unaware, will be entertaining angels. Jesus said when you gave the poor food, water, and clothing, to the least of my beloved, you did it unto me.

Think on this, and let us never look down on the poor, but be ready to minister with a cheerful heart, not by just giving money, but opening our hearts, and homes, to the many poor and destitute ones we now have, and it is growing in the great USA. It has fallen and it will not get up, much of this modern day hate of the poor is why the nation is falling, that is why, one of the main reasons, the lord is judging America, the American church, neglect and even hate of the precious poor ones.

May it not be so with you beloved, as you are going about your week, forget not the poor. Guard against the original sin of pride, and never feel you are SELF sufficient and the poor is lost, with no hope, and will need to be taken to a local camp when the stuff hits the fan, for this evil spirit permeates the air in America, it has been planed, an it is working, divide and conquer, our nation has never been so divided, thanks to the political dog and pony show, and thus we are now conquered.

The Gospel of the Kingdom and the coming end by Andrew Strom

This sermon was posted by sermon index, Andrew Strom , founder of John the baptist T.V. I do not endorse and agree with all brother storm says on his site, he is a great brother, 90% right on, and this is a good word. I have posted some of his stuff like, The kundalini ( spelling ? ) Revival, he knows what he is talking about on those issues as he was once a part of the Kansas city prophets,Manifest sons of God, but still feels Peter C.Wagner and Rick Joyner are pillars in the charismatic movement, how he feels tis, I have no idea, but he has come along, came out, and is doing a great job in exposing these false, wild revivals.

Reminder , tonight at 4 my time west coast time blog t.v. fellowship, hope to see someone there.

I had not sparked up E-sword yet today, when I did, It confirmed the message by Ravenhill I just re posted, The Lord Wants This Message Known

When the lord confirms a word, you know right away, it is something he wants to be known, and so I pass it on to you, dear reader, this is the word and theme from the throne today, no doubt, may the Ravinhill video, and this,, Meyers devotion speak to hearts, it is for a reason when things work tightly together like this, so there must be those that need to hear this message and theme today.

March 24

"Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began to make excuse."-- Luk_14:17-18.

IN THIS parable our Lord seems to show that the temptations of life lie in three directions. Our Property. So long as we are pilgrims and strangers, with no settled piece of land to call our own, with no stake in the country, with no accumulation in the bank, we reach out our hands towards the city that hath foundations (Heb_11:10-13). But when we buy a field, we are often preoccupied and engrossed with it, and all it stands for. We must lay it out for building, or plan the crops we are to raise; we think how we can sell it again at some advantage; we hope the railway company may need it. And so, though we may be outwardly punctilious in our religious observance, yet our affections are not set on things above (Col_3:1-4).

Our Activities. There is nothing wrong in having a team of oxen; on the contrary, it is a great and noble thing to plough up the virgin soil, and to make corn grow for the sustenance of the toiling millions of our fellow men. The oxen of Christ's time have their counterpart in the machinery of to-day--the traction engine and the motor-car. All these things marvellously preoccupy our minds. Men become so deeply interested, that they have no time or energy for anything else. They may not give an absolute negative to the invitations of Christ, but their urbane and polite excuse covers a practical refusal--"I pray Thee have me excused."

Our Home and Family Life. Our Lord said no word against these. Did He not honour a wedding feast with His Presence and first miracle? But He knows that we are apt to set aside the claims of the spiritual life when we are surrounded by all the joys and comforts of material happiness.
The excuses which were offered were very shallow--the land would not have disappeared if its owner had postponed visiting it for a day; the cattle had surely been proved already, or they would not have been bought. As to the newly-married wife, there was no reason why she should not have accompanied her husband, there was plenty of room for both. Let us respond to the love which Christ offers to us, lest we be refused by Him at the last (Heb_12:25).

We beseech Thee, our most gracious God, to preserve us from the cares of this life, lest we be too much entangled therein. AMEN.

Must see New Video I came across powerful, Agony and Sacrafice - Leonard Ravenhill

A 6 min vid compilation, Leonard Ravenhill. Agony and Sacrifice-holiness-repentance-Revival
Posted back in Aug 2012. There is so much on the site, I lose track, I saw a comment today on this video and I listened to it again wow, I just had to re-post this short , true powerful word.

Ps.16 A Short Study, A Word Of Encouragement And Hope-Also An Up -Date On The Ministry

A 36 min word, starts with a short teaching from PS 16, and than some words of comfort, a look at the ministry progress, and some random thoughts and words , current issues, and blessing of the lord that are happening, pray for my wife she is very ill. Also an update on the Obama care that started this month. I already posted the facts, that the part of the bill, that did at first, include the R.F.I.D. Chip, was dropped from the bill for now, 2014 or around this time is when the R.F.I.D. chip will be passed and implemented. I see so many are still making viral videos on how we will all have to take the R.F.I.D. chip, and are saying, still, it is the mark of the beast, it is not, I covered that in detail. The message is titled, 'The R.I.F.D. chip Is not The Mark Of The Beast', it has been getting many, many reads PTL.

It is a loss of freedom, privacy, and to later set up the cashless Antichrist mark of the beast, but this is not it. It is late march, has anyone been forced to take the chip? No, and you will not , so be at peace on this one.

Lastly, I talk about how, we are in a 100% Baptist town, we are the only full gospel ministry in Yermo, and how all our ministry cards and flyer's keep getting torn down , the day after, the lord knows who it, or they are, and in time he alone will vindicate his holy remnant. So local persecution, is on going, nothing new, and no longer moves us at all. The age old debate, non- full gospel, and full gospel, a very old hat, I do not even care, many books, and web sites are devoted just to this issue, so let others take that one, I do other things I am called to. We all must be faithful to our personal call, and to always have joy and fully trust in the lord. A Thank-You for two people who sent a little something via mail and words of encouragement, and of late how much this ministry means to people around the world. Only one troll this week PTL. LOL.

Prophecy In The News PT 11

Prophecy In The News PT 11

And There shall be war and rumors of War.

March 22, 2013 – NORTH KOREA – North Korea was rattling its sabers and sparking fears overnight. Its military is now threatening South Korea, Japan, and the United States saying that war is coming. The statement from military leaders have said: “Outbreak of war in Korea is now just a matter of time. Nothing can prevent war from breaking out.” The communist North is claiming that its missiles will target U.S. bases in Guam and Japan. That is where some of our nuclear submarines and B-52 bombers are based. The threat came two days after U.S. bombers carried out simulated nuclear bombing raids on North Korea. Tensions spiked in the region after North Korea carried out its latest underground nuclear test last month. And then again after new United Nation sanctions last week. -KTNV

And There shall be signs in the sky

Meteor lights up night sky over eastern United States

Posted on March 23, 2013     by The Extinction Protocol

March 23, 2013 – NEW YORK – A meteor bright enough to be classified as a fireball lit up the night sky over eastern North America on Friday, providing a spectacle witnessed in at least 13 states, Washington, D.C. and two Canadian provinces, the American Meteor Society said. The society verified more than 300 witness sightings from Ontario and Quebec down to the southern U.S. state of North Carolina with more than 100 reports yet to be reviewed, said Mike Hankey, an observer for the American Meteor Society. “This was most certainly a fireball seen over a good portion of the eastern states,” said Robert Lunsford, the society’s fireball coordinator. “It happened at a good time, around 8 o’clock on a Friday night, when a lot of people were out to see it,” Lunsford said. The society describes a fireball as a meteor brighter than Venus and Lunsford said they can be brighter than the Sun, as was the case with the one that streaked across the sky and exploded over Russia on February 15. Meteors are small particles from the solar system that burn from friction when entering the atmosphere. Several thousand meteors of fireball magnitude occur each day, most of them unseen over the oceans or hidden by daylight, the society said on its website.

This one was seen up and down the East Coast and in inland states such as West Virginia and Ohio, the society said. The fireball’s likely trajectory showed it moving east from eastern Pennsylvania and across New Jersey, passing just south of New York City and then over the Atlantic Ocean, based on witness reports to the society. “I originally thought the fireball was a low-flying plane,” said one witness from West Chester, Pennsylvania, whose comments were logged by the society. Many witnesses called it the brightest meteor they had ever seen. “I’m still in disbelief,” said another from Boonsboro, Maryland. –Yahoo News

This next one is something I have been talking about 2 plus years now, the prophetic word came forth to warn those in the E.U. of a coming Ice age, it has been fulfilled and it continues, in fact, it continues all over in places not foretold.

Spring dumps blizzards on United Kingdom: the coldest March in 50 years

March 23, 2013 – UNITED KINGDOM - Britain is bracing itself for more horrendous weather conditions which are believed to have claimed a first victim, closed hundreds of schools and brought travel chaos. A landslide and floodwater in Cornwall, thought to have been triggered by torrential rain, smashed through a block of flats partially collapsing the building. Emergency crews and specialist investigators found a woman’s body after picking through debris at the Veronica flats in Looe.

 The body is believed to be that of Susan Norman, who is in her 60s and police said was unaccounted for, having not been heard from since returning to the flats on Thursday night. More than a dozen residents in Sandplace Road were evacuated after most of the building’s front-facing wall crumbled away, with debris and mud crashing on to the back of the property from the road behind it. More flooding is expected in the South West as heavy rain continued while residents mopped up. Further north, snow blanketed many areas and closed several hundred schools. As forecasters warned this month could be the coldest March in 50 years, officials issued weather and travel warnings dashing any hopes of spring.

Thousands of youngsters got a day off school as several hundred shut their doors. Up to 8in (20.3cm) of snow is expected to hit the worst-affected parts of North West England, North Wales and south west Scotland. Higher areas could even see up to 16in (40.6cm), while bitterly cold gale-force winds create blizzard-like conditions and plunge temperatures down to well below freezing. John Lee, forecaster with MeteoGroup, said it could be the coldest March in 50 years. He said the average temperature expected for central England at this time of year is 6C (42.8F), but so far this month the average is 2.2 degrees below that – at 3.8C (38.8F).

That is significantly colder than last March, when averages were 8.3C (46.9F) – 2.3 degrees above the expected average. “Comparing it to similar winters, it’s provisionally going to be the coldest March in 50 years, although that can’t be confirmed until we reach the end of the month,” Mr Lee said. He referred to 1962 – when average temperatures were even colder, at 2.8C (37F), adding: “That will take some beating. But the way we are going it looks like we are heading towards being the coldest March since then.” –Independent

Nightmare unfolding in Cyprus, as plan hatched to seize 25% of large bank deposits

I am giving an update on the economic collapse coming, it is hitting the E.U. harder and harder, now Cyprus, well, it keeps getting worse, much worse.

March 23, 2013 – CYPRUS - Cyprus said on Saturday it was looking at seizing a quarter of the value of big deposits at its largest bank, as it races to raise the funds for a bailout from the European Union and to avert financial collapse. Finance Minister Michael Sarris said “significant progress” had been made in talks in Nicosia with officials from the European Union, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund. He confirmed discussions were centered on a possible levy of around 25 percent on holdings of over 100,000 euros (about $130,000) at Bank of Cyprus, and expressed hope that a package could be ready by the end of the day for approval by parliament.

 Cyprus faces a Monday deadline to clinch a bailout deal with the EU or the European Central Bank says it will cut off emergency cash to the island’s over-sized and stricken banks, spelling certain collapse and a potential exit from Europe’s single currency. Amid signs of momentum, Cypriot and EU officials said Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades was expected in Brussels on Sunday to meet EU leaders including Council President Herman Van Rompuy and Commission President Jose-Manuel Barroso, as well as IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde and the head of the ECB, Mario Draghi. Protesters in Cyprus gather outside parliament as government officials try to strike a bailout deal with the European Union.’s Dara Brown reports. Van Rompuy and Barroso canceled a planned EU-Japan summit in Tokyo to tend to the Cyprus saga and euro zone officials told Reuters that the bloc’s 17 finance ministers would meet on Sunday afternoon. “Significant progress has been made in the direction of getting a deal, at least at the troika level,” Sarris told reporters. He said a number of issues were still outstanding, but that a package could be ready “late this afternoon or early evening” for approval by parliament. Arriving at the troika talks, Andreas Artemi, chairman of Bank of Cyprus, was asked if a 25 percent haircut was being considered on uninsured deposits. He replied: “I don’t know that yet.”

A senior lawmaker told Reuters earlier on Saturday that parliament was not expected to convene until after the meeting of euro zone finance ministers on Sunday afternoon, taking the crisis right down to the wire. The same legislature on Tuesday angrily threw out a proposed levy on bank deposits, designed to raise the 5.8 billion euros the EU wants in return for a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout. The tax is unprecedented in Europe’s handling of a debt crisis that has spread from Greece, to Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy. It is by no means certain the tiny legislature will accept the measure this time around. The turnaround came after Russia rebuffed Cypriot entreaties to help its banks, where Russian citizens and other foreigners have billions of euros at stake.

 Significantly, the latest proposal would spare small depositors, who were outraged by the original plan to hit small holdings as well as large accounts, many of them held by rich foreigners including Russians. Cypriot leaders fear the damage the levy would do to the country’s offshore banking industry. The tottering banks hold 68 billion euros ($88 billion) in deposits, including 38 billion ($49 billion) in accounts of more than 100,000 euros – enormous sums for an island of 1.1 million people which could never sustain such a big financial system on its own. But much of the banks’ capital was wiped out by investments in Greece, the epicenter of the euro zone debt crisis. Racing to placate its European partners, Cypriot lawmakers voted in late-night session on Friday to nationalize state pensions and split failing lenders into good and bad banks. They also gave the government powers to impose capital controls on banks, anticipating a flood of money from the island when banks are due to reopen on Tuesday after more than a week of lockdown. The plan to nationalize semi-state pension funds has, however, met with resistance, particularly from Germany which made clear that tapping pensions could be even more painful for ordinary Cypriots than a deposit levy. The pace of the unfolding drama has stunned Cypriots, who have besieged bank cash machines since the levy was first mooted a week ago.

 “Our so-called friends and partners sold us out,” said Marios Panayides, 65, a protester at the parliament. “They have completely abandoned us on the edge of an abyss.” –MSNBC

Nightmare scenario: Like the Corvair, the banking system in Cyprus is built to fail – to spin out of control at a moment’s notice. But so is every banking system around the globe, including our own. And when a country’s banking system fails, its economy flips from a good path to a bad one – in economics speak, from a good to a bad equilibrium. Cyprus is a small country. Still, the failure of its banks could trigger massive bank runs in Greece. After all, if the European Central Bank is abandoning Cypriot depositors, they may abandon Greek depositors next. A run on Greek banks could then spread to Portugal, Ireland, Spain, and Italy and from there to Belgium and France and, you get the picture, to other countries around the globe, including, drum roll, the U.S. Every bank in each of these countries has made promises they can’t keep were push come to shove, i.e., if all depositors demand their money back immediately. –Forbes

Forbes, that is main street news, strange, but the truth.

I try and try to wake people up, many chose to remain blind, say these things have always happened, such ones will soon be in for a shock, to the ones who have ears to hear and eyes to see, you know, you know what is going on, and you will not be caught un aware, nor unprepared. Spiritual preparation still number one.

 I have said in the midst of all that is on us and coming, a holy remnant will be singing and shouting praise, those going through the fiery trials are being purged, made clean, you are in training, no school can train you for this. Get to know CPR, because men’s hearts are, and will be failing them for fear. LOL. I kid you not.

 In America, aside from mostly Political craziness, wild laws, and division, we have been spared so far, it is coming, we will not be spared to much longer, many can feel it in the air, as our country grows darker and darker as the blind leaders lead the blind into the path of destruction. One day these blind leaders will give account for not preaching and teaching on the birth pains, not telling their people hard times are coming, no conviction, no repentance, just a gospel light that has no effect.

Social clubs of the Pharisee’s nothing more, do good institutions that have no idea of what is going on, nor do they want to, what ever happened to solid bible preaching under the holy anointing, hard to find in a Church these days, as the churches become more and more dead and apostate.

Dear reader, if you are going through hell on earth, keep your eyes on the lord, keep faithful in his word, win souls, pray, fast and be bold in humility to proclaim the truth and sound doctrine, that is all that matters now, we have a job to do, so lets go do it.

March 2013 Some Events, A 2 part Video And One More, These Events Are In March , Only Half A Month

Who, Or What Is Your Banner- Do You Have A Banner? It Is Free

Psa 20:1  For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. Jehovah answer thee in the day of trouble; The name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;

Psa 20:2  Send thee help from the sanctuary, And strengthen thee out of Zion;

Psa 20:3  Remember all thy offerings, And accept thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah.

Psa 20:4  Grant thee thy heart's desire, And fulfil all thy counsel.

Psa 20:5  We will triumph in thy salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners: Jehovah fulfil all thy petitions.

Psa 20:6  Now know I that Jehovah saveth his anointed; He will answer him from his holy heaven With the saving strength of his right hand.

Psa 20:7  Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will make mention of the name of Jehovah our God.

Psa 20:8  They are bowed down and fallen; But we are risen, and stand upright.

Psa 20:9  Save, Jehovah: Let the King answer us when we call.

Lets first look at the key word, Banner in the Hebrew;

A primitive root; to flaunt, that is, raise a flag; figuratively to be conspicuous: - (set up, with) banners, chiefest.

BDB Definition:
1) to look, behold
1a) (Qal) looked at, conspicuous (participle)
2) to carry a banner or standard, set up banner or standard
2a) (Qal) to set up standard (in battle)
2b) (Niphal) supplied with banners, bannered

ban´ẽr (ENSIGN, STANDARD): The English word “banner”
2. A Distinction with a Difference
The relation of these to the “standard” of Num_21:8 f (Hebrew nēṣ, the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) “standard”) is by no means clear. The word nēṣ, here translated “standard,” seems to have meant at first a pole set up on an eminence as a signal for mustering troops (compare “mast” Isa_30:17 the English Revised Version, margin). But it occurs frequently in the prophets both in this literal and original sense, and in the figurative or derived sense of a rallying point for God's people (see Isa_5:26; Isa_11:10; Jer_4:21 and elsewhere). Here the rendering in English Versions of the Bible alternates between “ensign” and “banner” (see HDB, 1-vol, article “Banner”).

Psa 60:1  For the Chief Musician; set to Shushan Eduth. Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the Valley of Salt twelve thousand. O God thou hast cast us off, thou hast broken us down; Thou hast been angry; oh restore us again.

Psa 60:2  Thou hast made the land to tremble; thou hast rent it: Heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

Psa 60:3  Thou hast showed thy people hard things: Thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering.

Psa 60:4  Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

Psa 60:5  That thy beloved may be delivered, Save with thy right hand, and answer us.

Psa 60:6  God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult; I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

Psa 60:7  Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre.

Psa 60:8  Moab is my washpot; Upon Edom will I cast my shoe: Philistia, shout thou because of me.

Psa 60:9  Who will bring me into the strong city? Who hath led me unto Edom?

Psa 60:10  Hast not thou, O God, cast us off? And thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts.
Psa 60:11  Give us help against the adversary; For vain is the help of man.

Psa 60:12  Through God we shall do valiantly; For he it is that will tread down our adversaries.


Psalms 60:1-12

 Prayer for Help against Foes


This was a national psalm to be taught the people. See title; also Deu_31:19. A strong coalition had been formed against David at that time. See 2Sa_10:6; 2Sa_10:8; 2Sa_10:17; 2Sa_10:19; 1Ch_18:12-15.

 Israel was threatened with disaster. It was as if an earthquake had rent the soil. But the king-psalmist argued that God had given His people a mission in the world, which could not be forfeited. First, Israel carried a banner for the truth, Psa_60:4. In addition, God had “spoken in His holiness” and had promised that the seed of Abraham should possess Canaan. Standing on a hill-summit, the psalmist sees the Land of Promise outspread before him.
 Shechem and Succoth, Psa_60:6, one west, the other east, of the Jordan, indicate the breadth of the land. All had been given over to Israel by covenant, and therefore the surrounding peoples must become subject.
As yet the strong city of Petra, rock-girded, Psa_60:9, had laughed David to scorn; but he had confidence that God would lead him within its mighty walls, to tread down his adversaries, Num_24:18. Man could not, but God could. The question is never, Can God? but always, Can we trust and follow Him?


Psalms 60:4

Thou hast given a banner - נס  nes, a sign, something that was capable of being fixed on a pole. (Note, one of the names attributed to Jehovah is, Jehovah our Banner, Jehovah Nissi )
That it may be displayed - להתנוסס  lehithnoses, that it may be unfurled.

Because of the truth - מפני קשט  mippeney koshet, from the face of truth; which has been thus paraphrased: If we have displayed the ensign of Israel, and gone forth against these our enemies, who have now made such a terrible breach among us, (Psa_60:1-3), it was because of thy truth - the promises of victory which we supposed would attend us at all times.

Mr. Mudge, thus: “Thou givest to them that fear thee a signal to be displayed before the truth. That thy favored ones may be delivered, clothe thy right arm with victory, and answer us. God speaketh in his sanctuary, I will exult; I shall portion out Shechem, and measure the valley of Succoth.” The fourth verse seems to mean that God had appointed for the consolation of his people a certain signal of favor, with which therefore he prays him to answer them.

So we have read what a banner is, what it was, and how in the messiah we still have it. The blood of the cross is our banner, The empty tomb our standard, and truth, that the lord rose from the dead and is alive.

There used to be an old publishing Co, called Banner Of Truth, ever read any of their works, it is a lot different than what we hear today, great, great stuff.

Truth is our banner, the truth of the holy bible, and nothing else, not me, not you no one, but the lord. Truth is truth, let the lord be true and every man a liar, meaning if a man does not present the truth of the word, he is wrong and a liar, but the lords word is always true, alive and active.

Psa 60:2  Thou hast made the land to tremble; thou hast rent it: Heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

Psa 60:3  Thou hast showed thy people hard things: Thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering.

Psa 60:4  Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

We are once again in the type of days King David is speaking of, The earth is trembling, it is being torn, sink holes everywhere, Vs 3. Thou has shown your people hard things. Many do not want to listen or heed to strong things. A strong word. The nation is under Judgment, this we know, the world is reeling to and fro like a drunkard, no one can deny this fact. The birth pains are strong now, each day, month, more records are broken, more chaos, more war and rumors of war, more famine, death, plagues, drought, signs in the sky.

But you dear reader must know who your banner is, is it an army, chariots and horses, is this what you trust in? Or do you trust in Jesus to keep you , protect you and deliver you?

This verse is key,

Psa 60:4  Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

Whom has the lord given this banner to? Those that fear him, Do you have a biblical, healthy fear of the lord? It is to you the lord gives His banner, and His truth is on display. Not man’s banner, not his works, nothing, but Jesus. Lift Jesus higher, that all may come to him, not us.

So, who is your banner, is it our lord, is it Jehovah Nissi, or something, or someone else? I pledge allegiance to the lamb, that is my banner, not a flag, any flag, of any country, as we are not of this world, this is not our home, we are strangers and pilgrims, just passing through, till we reach glory.

Jesus said, “If you love Father or Mother, more than me, you are not worthy of me”

Anything that takes us from our time with the lord is an Idol, and the lord will not just allow Idols to continue. It must be all or nothing, truth or a lie, Christ as your lord and savior, or your whole life is in vain.

If you have never made the lord your banner, he offers it to you today, today is the day of salvation. We are in hard times beloved and it will only become harder, it is time to raise Jesus up, and boldly proclaim the Gospel, the bible Truth, let this be your flag, let this be your rally point, the Lord Jehovah Nissi, the blood of his son, stand under this protective banner, the enemy can not touch you, men can do nothing to you, yes some will die for Christ , but they can only take your body, not your soul, we win, glory, to the lord dear saint we win, if you stay in the lord, if you stay near to him and are found at the banner of gathering at his second return, are you going to be there?
