Jesus Explains the Times by what HAS HAPPENED. WE Should hear HIM!

Two disciples were walking to Emmaus after the Resurrection.  They are in grief.  They didn't believe what the women saw.  They were convinced that it was all over.  Then Jesus shows up and walks with them.  They tell him what has happened.  They don't know it is Jesus.  Then he explains to them that everything that DID happen exactly as had been foretold by the prophets.

He called them foolish and slow to believe... not being cruel.  They certainly did know the prophesies.  Jesus himself before he died that all must be done as prophesied.  Yet when it happened they were unable to connect the dots.
Luke 24:25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
Even when he took scripture and showed them before he died. Matthew 16:21 "From that time on Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and that He must be killed and on the third day be raised to life".
I wonder if it ever happened that as Jesus was explaining to his disciples what was about to happen, that he interjected things and said, "I would explain that prophesy to you, but it's not going to come to pass for 2000 years or so.  Or after he rose from the dead, did he spend any time telling them of events yet to come?  Only the revelation of John at Patmos was spoken of the days to come in Jerusalem.

This all has to do with the truth that EVERY SINGLE prophetic word regarding things to come from Genesis to Malachi has already taken place and/or is fully manifested in Jesus and the Resurrection.    There is nothing more to be fulfilled.  The Matthew 24 prediction Jesus made happened in 70-72 AD at the hands of the Romans.  The destruction of the temple system was complete and a new order began.  One based on everlasting life by Grace. 

Anything that denies the finished work of the cross and the filled prophesies it carries is living under the law:

Paul writes to the Galatians about such things:

Chapter 3
Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh? 4 Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? 5 So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?

For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” 11 Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” 12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.”[  13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole (the cross)."

The whole of Chapter 3 of Galatians speaks of the finished work and the curse of reliance on the law.

So when I become upset with some people using prophetic passages to reason away the finished work of the cross, the salvation by grace, our victorious existence for eternity and trade them for some dire prediction about the future.. I can only say.  HOW FOOLISH YOU ARE!

The mark of the Beast may be Facebook

I don't necessarily embrace all there is to know about the whole end times theology, I do pay attention to trends. 

Facebook seems to see itself as the arbiter of wisdom and is trying hard to control people's thinking.

That is a beast mark. 

So when I recently was banned from the site for what they said was inflammatory hate speak, (I criticized a muslin court for sentencing a young christian woman to hang for drinking from the same cup as Muslims). 

That got me banned.  How long I don't know. But it does lead one to wonder, how much of our lives is constrained by the constant restrain of thinking.

I won't cite 1984, Brave New World or Farenhiet 451, yet there is instruction to be had by thinking about these things.

Prophetically, it is important not to allow world systems cause us to become silent.  We must cry aloud and spare not... even in the face of the enemy of our souls rage against us.

God is Looking for a Moses to Lead his People, yet they follow KORAH

God is seeking a new Moses to lead his people out of the wilderness.  There is a group of wanderers who have been so long in the wilderness they think the wilderness existence is normal.  They accept the aberration, the immorality, the murder, the corruption and the deception they live in as normal.  They live in lack, want, despair and hopelessness because they have listened to the wrong voice.  The Voice of Korah.  He's alive in many today.

The voice of Korah speaks discontent.   His story is an old one, but as current as today's headlines

Korah and His Associates

Korah, one of the rich leaders of the Levites, and a cousin of Moses and Aaron, felt that he had been slighted and overlooked in the distribution of the highest priestly honors and leadership. He envied Moses and Aaron, and also his cousin Elzaphan, who had been put in charge of the Levites, after Aaron's family had become elevated to the rank of Kohanim (Priests). Realizing that despite his riches and influence he alone could do very little to shake the people's faith and confidence in Moses and Aaron, Korah looked for associates in his campaign against them.

Korah went to the people of the tribe of Reuben, his neighbors in the camping order. Being daily in close contact with them, Korah easily swayed the opinions of their leaders and drew them into his conspiracy. Among the Reubenites were two men, Dathan and Abiram, who since their early days in Egypt had been trouble-makers and the ringleaders of disaffection and rebellion. They were the first to rally to the party of Korah, and they were his most eager agents among their tribesmen. Their experienced and clever campaigning, aided by Korah's riches, influence, and knowledge, induced as many as 250 respected leaders of the Jewish camp to join the rebellion. 

These leaders are with us today.  They are profiting from the discontent in the camp today.  They are using victimization, old wives tales, offense, rumor, innuendo and resentment to cause people to stay in the wilderness.  They wander without direction because there is no Moses.  There has been a call from the Father for one to rise up.  None have yet been raised up.

There have been some pretenders, there have been some actual Korahs.  There have been some who thought they might be leaders but fell into the party of Korah.  They thought that it would cost them their acceptance among the people to take a stand against the delusion of Korah.

It is exactly this way today.  We see the pattern all over again.

I clearly heard the Lord say:

"Many who believed they had a place of leadership in the Kingdom over those wandering in the wilderness I will now set aside.  The name ICHABOD "the glory is gone" will be how they are known for the glory of the Lord is gone from them.  There was a time when their mission was clear, when they thought they might be among those destined to lead their people out of bondage, but they could not shake the chains of bondage from themselves and therefore forged lies that place people in bondage to this day.  These false leaders will be swallowed up into the chasm of obscurity.  My prophets know their names.  They appear to have some anointing, some touch of God left, but it is all residue.  They have been judged by heaven and found wanting.  Their works are weighed and found wanting. I will now set them aside."

It is much like the words written on the all at Belshazzar's feast.  That same warning is here again.

And this the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This the interpretation of the thing:
  • MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
  • TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
  • PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
Daniel Chapter 5

God still has a call out for those who are willing to reject the party of Korah.  For those who are willing to become the leaders those wandering in the wilderness need so desperately.  I do not yet know many names.  It will take great boldness.

I can prophesy this, those from whom the mantle has been lifted think they will go on just as they always did.  They stand on the verse that the gifts and callings of God are without repentance, that can be true but the mantle that it takes to carry those gifts out is lacking and you become a clanging gong or clashing cymbal.

Those who most need to see or read this work will never ever see it.  They long since separated themselves from truth. They live a lie and use lies to build followings.  The accusations of the enemy is in their mouth.  I would call for repentance but it is too late for them.

ICHABOD is NOW YOUR NAME.  Any glory you ever had is GONE.. 

But God always has a people and right now they are a remnant in the wilderness, my hope is they will find a way out to freedom.  The choice is who they will follow.  Moses or Korah.

The Stench of Delusion Robs the Called of Anointing

Can a person forfeit the call of God on their lives?  Maybe a better question is how does a person neutralize and neuter the call of God. The call of God is without repentance, but it can be rendered null and void when we embrace a lie. 

Jesus often was confronted with lies and accusations.  Mostly from religious people. From those who saw themselves as anointed with a calling.  They were wrong but the lies came anyway. It ended with the cross. Jesus defeated the demons at the cross in a public display.  Many people had partnered with the demonic that day. They didn't know it but they suffered a defeat as well.

It's the same today.  There were without a doubt people on whom at one time God had a calling in the crowd crying "Crucify Him".  They had embraced a great delusion and it meant that they were set aside. On the day of Pentecost when Peter cried out that THEY had crucified the Lord of Glory there were those who cried out "Then what must we do to be saved".  Some however in that moment rejected the pain of the delusion they had embraced and turned away.  The lie they carried was more powerful than the truth by which they might have been set free.

I have no knowledge of the depths to which they may have sunk.  I have no idea if those people ever made it back.  Any anointing they once possessed became an offense to Father.  Trying to operate in that anointing was a lost cause.  In fact it became a stench in the nostrils of God.  Every accusation and hateful word they spoke and spread condemned them even further.

It is no different today.  There are people in authority who Father God has put in place.  We may not love those people. They may be flawed in human terms.  Yet they are the ones who according to scripture are "Put Up" and another is taken down.  It's not just high office, but even the authority figures we interact with on a daily basis.  The demon of rebellion and deception has caused many to lose the touch of God on their lives.

The vile attitude towards authority figures has become a stench to Father.   We place ourselves under judgment to be measured by the grace we extend to those who we find ourselves resenting.  We are judged by the same standard by which we judge.  The result is many find themselves lacking. Lost.  Set aside.  Marked for the graveyard of lost anointing.  Perhaps never to find a way back.

A few like on the day of Pentecost might find their way back, but not many.  There certainly were far more than 3000 present when Peter spoke.  These so deluded went to the grave lost in their deception.  Some even entered hell's gates thinking they were holding a standard.  They were, but it was the enemies standard.

It's about hatred.  It's about the ANTI CHRIST attitude of judgment, anger, hatred and lies.  All fruits of the evil spirit to which they have become attached.  It will destroy them eventually if they don't find a way out of the black dungeon they have locked themselves into.

Many think they speak truth when they spread lies.  They think they are wise when foolishness condemns them.  It's a painful thing to watch. 

I have personally known some so called men of God who's deception and delusion so captured them that they have become worthless men.  Useless to the kingdom.  God cannot speak love and hate from the same mouth.  It is impossible for sweet and sour to flow from the same fount. 

Is there  a cure?  Maybe not.  I don't have one.  Repentance from death works is a start.  That is not a misspelling. There are dead works, and there are death works.  Words of hate and death destroy the anointing and neutralize the call of God on a person's life.

Be careful who you accept as a prophet, teacher, pastor and particularly anyone who describes themselves as Apostle.  They can take you to hell.   I have on man who I know who's soul has been in jeopardy for several years.  I doubt not only his calling, but his salvation.  There is no fruit of the spirit in his life.  None.  There should be some evidence.  He may be a spiritual zombie.  Looking still alive on the outside but walking dead man's bones.

Sadly I have tried to approach him directly, deal with him thru those he seems to revere as senior authorities, thru people we have in common.  Nothing seems to work.  He is so filled with hate perhaps the adage is true.  People that hate themselves will hate everyone else... EVEN IF THEY CALL THEMSELVES APOSTLE.

Prophecy in Present Truth becomes Personal and Meaningful


When we apply prophetic present truth to the word of God, it gives us understanding of the finished work of the cross.  

Isaiah Chapter 36 as present truth (Gene Edit)

Prophecy to the Mountains of My Kingdom


36 “And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of those who call yourself christian, and say, O mountains, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God: Because the enemy said of you, ‘Aha!’ and, ‘The religious places and institutions have become our possession,’ therefore prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord God: Precisely because they made you desolate and crushed you from all sides, so that you became the possession of the rest of the world system, and you became the talk and evil gossip of the people, therefore, O mountains of the church, hear the word of the Lord God: Thus says the Lord God to the mountains and the hills, the ravines and the valleys, the desolate wastes and the deserted cities in which my former church was represented, you have become a prey and derision to the rest of the nations all around, therefore thus says the Lord God: Surely I have spoken in my jealousy against the rest of the pagan world system and against all scoffers, who gave my rightful places to themselves as a possession with wholehearted joy and utter contempt, that they might make its people there a prey. Therefore prophesy concerning the kingdom, and say to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I have spoken in my jealous wrath, because you have suffered the reproach of the nations. Therefore thus says the Lord God: I swear that the nations that are all around you shall themselves suffer reproach.
“But you, O mountains of the Kingdom, shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to my people, for they will soon come home to my dwelling places. For behold, I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be a place of restoration and renewal. 10 And I will multiply people to you, the whole of the true house of God, all of it. They shall be inhabited and the burned over places rebuilt. 11 And I will multiply on you my man called by my name and all of yours, and they shall multiply and be fruitful. And I will cause you to be inhabited as in your former times, and will do more good to you than ever before. Then you will know for certain that I am the Lord. 12 I let people walk on you, even my people who are known as mine. And they possessed you, and you were their inheritance, and you were not able to constrain them of converts to the fallen ways of the world. 13 Thus says the Lord God: Because they said to you, ‘You call yourself a Christian people, and yet you bereave your nation of children by abortion and unholy relationships,’ 14 therefore you shall rise up and no longer tolerate lives being pulled into hell and no longer bereave your nation of children, declares the Lord God. 15 And I will silence the taunts of the ungodly in accusation, and you shall no longer be the brunt of evil ridicule that causes my people to be seen as foolish by the unsaved, declares the Lord God.”

The Lord's Concern for His Holy Name

16 The word of the Lord came to me: 17 “Son of man, when my people lived in their own world of religious institutions, they defiled it by their ways and their deeds. Their ways before me were a stench of rot. 18 So I poured out my wrath upon them for the blood that they had shed in the land, for the idols with which they had defiled it. 19 I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries. In accordance with their ways and their deeds I judged them. 20 But when they came to the nations, wherever they came, those nations profaned my holy name, in that people said of them, ‘These are the people of the Lord, and yet they are meaningless and without impact.’ 21 But I had concern for my holy name, which my people had profaned among the nations to which they came.

I Put My Spirit Within You

22 “Therefore say to the my people of the Kingdom, Thus says the Lord God: It is not for your sake, my people, that I  act, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations to which you came. 23 And I vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. And the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Lord God, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. 24 I take you from your pollution from the world system and gather you from all those places and bring you into the kingdom,  a new holy nation, a peculiar people. 25 I have sprinkled clean water on you, and you are clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I have cleansed you. 26 And I gave you a new heart, and a new spirit within you. And I removed the heart of stone from your flesh and gave you a heart of flesh. 27 And I put my Spirit within you, and caused you to walk in my statutes being careful to obey me. 28 You dwell in that place of honor that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God. 29 And I have delivered you from all your uncleannesses. And I summon supernatural provision and make it abundant and lay no lack upon you. 30 I make the fruit your work and the increase of your labors increase, that you may never again suffer the disgrace of poverty among the nations. 31 Then you will remember those evil ways, and your deeds that were not good in the former days, and you will loathe yourselves for being dragged into iniquities and abominations wondering how did we fall so far? 32 It is not for your sake that I act, declares the Lord God; let that be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your error of being lured away by the world system my people.
33 “Thus says the Lord God: I have cleansed you from all your iniquities, I cause my holy nation to be inhabited, and the waste places rebuilt. 34 And the land that was desolate shall fruitful, instead of being the desolation that it was in the sight of all who passed by. 35 And they can say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ 36 Then the nations that are left all around you shall know that I am the Lord; I rebuilt the ruined places and replanted that which was desolate. I am the Lord; I have spoken, and I do it.
37 “Thus says the Lord God: This also I let my kingdom people ask me to do for them: to increase their people like a flock so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the Lord.”

Destined for a Crown but Choosing the PIT

Many people are living far below their destiny because they want to.  Oh, they will deny it, but they do.  They would rather live in their chosen familiar pit than wear the Crown and be the Prince they were supposed to be. They blame circumstances and others for their situation.  All this in opposition to the word of God:

Psalms 103:4 says: --- who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy

Now that is either true or it's not.  You make the choice. He's already done it.  He needs you to get out of there.   He keeps saying it over and over, almost like you are supposed to believe it.  What would our life be like if we believed the BIBLE was TRUE.

Psalm 49:15
But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol, For He will receive me

1 Samuel 2:8
"He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap To make them sit with Princes, And inherit a seat of honor; For the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, And He set the world on them."

Psalm 113:7
He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the dunghill

YET in spite of knowing and quoting all these there are many who are stuck in the pit, waiting for someone to lift them out.  God is looking for you, he sees you far above your dumpster diving life.  He wants more for you.  You were made for better.

Some of the PITS in which some people have decided to pitch their tent are:

  • The PIT of Fear (fear of man being huge)
  • The PIT of Addiction (sex, drugs, alcohol, relationships)
  • The PIT of Victimization, Victim-hood and Poor me
  • The PIT of Resentment of others better or worse off than me
  • The PIT of Anger against everyone different from them
  • The PIT of Entitlement (I have this coming to me, I deserve it)
  • The PIT of Ignorance (this is a big one, ignoring the truth for a lie) 
  • The PIT of Deception (unwilling to ask the question, REALLY? falling prey)
  • The PIT of Poverty (calling in misfortune in the name of being UNDER)
  • The PIT of Hurts (you have no idea what it's like)
  • The PIT of Impossible (I could never do that)
  • The PIT of Depression (this is a real comfort zone for many)
  • The PIT of Escapism in Theology (Never really embracing the Kingdom)
The Pit you find yourself in is one you choose.  Getting out of it, finding help is also a choice.  Telling the truth to YOU is the big deal.  In fact the Pit SHOULD be a place of JOY because you know that the CROWN is coming.  Your ashes will be turned into Beauty once you exit the pit.

It is sobering is that people will die in the PIT.. they will be buried in the PIT and never having discovered life beyond the Pit.  It's a horrid way to live and die.  You were created for more than this.


GET OUT OF THAT PIT!!

WHY REVIVAL IS DEAD IN THE USA

I was meditating on the things of God, on why we don't see revival. Why so much of the church is inert, Unable to influence the culture. I heard a sound... one that I had not expected. He began to download the truth of WHY REVIVAL IS DEAD IN THE USA.

Here's what I heard Him say:

Life cannot come out of death. When death is the culture, life cannot shine. Even if it does, the dominant culture will prevail.

Clarity cannot come out of confusion. Much of the church is confused and lives in obscurity. My word should be simple but Man has make it a maze that the soul can no longer navigate.

Order cannot come out of disorder. Most of my body is in disorder and disarray. Some is denomination, some is division, some is racial, some is ethnic, some is economic, some is cultural and much is simply selfishness. It's out of order.

Discernment cannot arise our of deception. Too much of my body is living in deception. Some about being victims, some about who I am, some about the Kingdom. How can I move when they don't even SEE the kingdom. Many are not yet born again.

My light of way and truth cannot be seen for the darkness. It's always there, but religion and the world has blinded the eyes of even those who believe or think they believe.

Dependence on others, on government, on poverty programs, on politics has destroyed the capacity to operate in faith and trust in ME. If I move they credit political leaders. They never see me move so they never learn to trust.

As people trust more in Government the less they trust in me. It is an evil scheme of the enemy of your souls. I will not allow my Spirit to move in places where people gather but do not trust ME but rather trust in men, systems, government and others.

As I pondered what I was hearing I thought of a friend of mine who after ministering in a Muslim country and meeting with christian missionaries of various denominations said all that fell away as they gathered, they were desperate for the truth of God and His promise to them. He didn't fail them, but they only had Him to rely on. All the foolishness dispersed and God arose in their midst.

Think of China where people live in oppression. The church thrives. Think of some countries where Christianity is illegal, yet God Arises. Contrast that with Europe with social support systems that remove the need for God. Our government which are in Berlin.. etc.

Here's the bottom line. If you are in a community, a church, a population, a group and the bulk of your membership sees God as a fun guy, praise, dance sing but dependence on Government in every form is the norm.. don't bother to pray for revival. If you support more government support for people.. robbing others, then don't bother praying for revival. There are places I know of where no matter what.. it's dead dead. Not just Dead.

The fact is, until our nation, the USA suffers great depression and great distress in every way, until we are desperate, Revival is never coming. We are too soft, independent, removed and comfortable in our paneled houses. Unless you really want the USA to go thru a pigpen experience like the prodigal to come back the father, then don't pray. Have fun, dance, speak in tongues, howl, scream, sing and have a great time.. living in darkness.
