Challenge, Change, and The New Year by Vaughn Allen Clark
God bless you and your loved ones during this joyous time of celebration—the first time Jesus came as a Babe; the next He will be the Conquering King. The kingdoms of this earth, are become the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ, and HE shall reign forever and ever, and the goverment shall be upon His Shoulders, and He shall be called Wonderful, Glorious, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
The Rock of Ages....
As the Rock becomes a Mountain that fills the whole earth, the beast arises as well....may all of us who believe take note the beast has feet of crumbling clay mixed with iron, both strong, but unstable and temporary. Take heed, child of God, that you implore the Lord to separate you from this diabolical system arising that will seek to hook every one of us through the control of money: every cent in fact.
I marvel at a world that has greater faith in demonically inspired Mayan prophecy than the Word of the Living God. I vacillate between knowing greater peace than ever before and draining weariness from "being on constant alert"—-that is the best way I can describe this transient season and how it impacts me.
The reality of pilgrimage is on us all and we so do not want to sever roots and pack for the journey. In the midst of all that is spinning around us, there is one constant I hear continually in the Spirit—"Safe Passage". There comes a time and season in which the epiphany of our absolute dependence on God, in Whom alone rests our deliverance, produces a peaceful sobriety we must endeavor not to be tainted with melancholy. It is that hour of reckoning during which it is Scriptural to pray Jesus's prayer of consecration and dedication,
"Not My will but Thine be done!"
The world has become an arena, a stage of the profoundly ridiculous, absurd, and shocking. With each staged event, a global noose tightens around the neck of blind America. Mankind, and sadly, even many in the Church, are bent on worshipping man as God. Strong delusion has come and we like the Kool Aid.
Somewhere in the hidden place of the soul, each believer is hearing a constant whisper which brings trembling and selective deafness,
"And now the hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified....."
As we approach the New Year, let us find solace in the love of God, in the Author and Finisher of our Faith, the Captain of our souls—-He has gone beyond the veil for us. 2013 will be a year of challenges and changes in the midst of which the Holy Spirit will engineer the recovery of vibrant, Biblical faith in Jesus Christ. Those who choose sight over blindness will separate themselves to power and committment. This is a season also of shock, for the spirit of antichrist is rapidly raising up a false Christianity that is not Christian and a patriotism that is not American, but global.
Service to the state will emerge as service to God. I see cruel mockery and delusional doctrine emerging, even justifying, blatant rebellion to the written Word of God, in the Name of God.
I see a marriage in Hell between the government and a church that draws its sustenance from man and not God. I see pseudo Christians oppressing true Christians with the blessing and benefaction of pure evil fueled by government money and sanctions.
I see a true revival breaking forth that rocks the foundations of America and the division in the country becoming incredibly distinct—we will both weep and rejoice, weeping for what has been lost and rejoicing in what God is doing. The sound of weeping and rejoicing will be as one voice.
Our flesh strives for the broad and level path of temporary ease and sudden destruction, but we are being forced into the desert of the strait and narrow way which leads to eternal life. We are being tested by the enemy and being forced to choose between an earthly kingdom and the Word of God. All that we have known and heard about Jesus and have held in our hearts has become a piercing and dividing sword.
We will either know and accept the brokeness of Christ or enter into the arrogance and hardness of antichrist. For such purpose, a great gathering is being prepared. We will all be drawn to the national and global spiritual summit of Mount Carmel.....there Baal will be mocked by the few and God will be tempted by the many. There will be great drama and blood-letting, even hysteria, by the priests and worshippers of Baal. Those who dare will stand in the Lord and the power of His might.
Many are in the valley of decision even now, forgetting that God is the majority right by Himself, and that He has made sure there are more with us than against us. It is so sad that there is really except the Lord. Baal worship centers on sexual license of every kind, sybaritic materialism and prosperity, and the sacrifice of children to the fire.....how could anyone called by the name of Christian surrender to such demonic opposition to all that is called and understood as God? How can we stand in church and pretend?
God still has a people who have not bowed their knees to the madness and cruel tyranny...
Where are the preachers and prophets of the Most High God who will lift up the Lord Jesus Christ and His Gospel without apology? Why do God's people trample the courts of the Lord running after apostates while hating those who speak and preach the Truth? Jesus has become a Rock of offense and stumbling to His own, and His own are not receiving Him.
We seem to have forgotten that we are Homeward Bound.
There is peril in the days ahead, but also great promise: yes we will face many temporal pressures, but the greatest peril is within. Will you harden your heart against God in the Day of Adversity?
Worship.....there is a time to Worship when nothing else is to be done, or can be done. It is the time when one's eyes are open to the folly and reality of this world, when man has played hell with all his "options" until there are none left. The best day of your life is when the wild and certain stepping stone of Faith in Jesus is the first step you take outside the gates of the city of man towards the Lord—-Homecoming happens in the heart many years before our bodies follow if we are wise.
The Master Plan of God is in full swing and no one in Hell, no one in Heaven and no one on the earth can take you onward—except Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of the Living God.
Christian, the Day Star is arising, the Son of Righteousness, with healing in His Wings. It is Harvest time. The world is so convicted that even the mention of a Christmas tree or a manger scene drives them insane—they tremble when Christmas Carols are sung. Jesus makes those who love the god of this world physically ill. He is the Stone that the builders rejected and has become a stone of stumbling and offense to the disobedient.
So, you that believe—don't be shocked. Jesus said there would be days like this.
In this Celebration of His First Coming in the growing light of His Second Coming, let us draw near to Him and to one another in sincere love and faith. This is a season for gratitude and for reckoning:
Christ, the Savior is born!
Jesus has risen from the dead and has presented His Blood on the Mercy Seat before God—He sits at the Right Hand of the Father!
Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, is coming back and every knee will bow!
Gratitude that He loved us when we were yet sinners and gave Himself for us as sacrifice, gratitude that our names are written in the Lambs Book of Life—are we grateful? I am thankful that even though I was once an enemy of God, worthy of His Wrath and eternal damnation, He has redeemed me—the Price has been paid in full, all my sins nailed to the Cross of Calvary, cast away from me as far as the East is from the West, and forgotten by God.
My sin oh the bliss of this glorious thought, my sin, not the part but the whole, is nailed to the Cross and I bear it no more, praise the Lord, praise the Lord, oh my soul! It is well, with my soul, it is well, it is well, it is well with my soul! This is my prayer for each of you in this truly New Advent in our understanding of the Church Age, that it would be well with your souls. Do not let your love for Jesus fade as this world lurches and flickers.
I will be bold—choose wisely—choose life for the Lord draws near. This is no ordinary Christmas and no ordinary time. Seek the Lord individually and as family—take Communion during your celebration, knowing the Blood of Jesus covers the doorposts and lintels of your homes. Do all you can to show the love of Jesus and to be kind to others, especially the less fortunate. Remember that we face days in which the only stable Foundation and Path is Him. Quite frankly, He is our food, and drink, and safety, our Shield and our exceedingly great reward.
Wait on Him, strengthen yourself in Him, and rise up on eagle's wings. We are in a deep cleansing mode.
This is the time for repentance and clarity. History is being made everyday. God is about to overthrow the overthrow. God is about to shake both Heaven and earth. Many of you are being strategically disengaged and will be reconnected spiritually and for some geographically. Some of you are fighting wars God never called you to—let go of offense and trying to be right. Deceit is propspering in the hearts of the damned—separate yourself from any inclination to manipulation, sorcery, mind games, control, and seduction. God is going to throw Jezebel into a sick bed because of her witchcraft....too many of God's people collect souls for their own indulgence. Look up the word "prudence" which is what we must pursue, powerful prudence in the face of the tragic demonic depravity that is on the land.
Let your prayers be pure and not the manifestation of wickedness seeking to control others to get them to do what you want them to. Remember that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubborness as the sin of idolatry.
Don't trade your soul for temporal security—never allow anyone to insert a computer id chip anywhere on your body for any reason. Our Kingdom is not of this world. It is time to stand up and proclaim like a trumpet that God is calling His people to repentance and to separation from this horrible system. God will take care of you. We are going to find out experiencially the command, " The just will live by faith."
SAFE PASSAGE....God is about to make a show of His Sovereign power. Time is spent and much will come quickly. Be ready to do the work of the evangelist and keep your testimony no matter what.
God bless and keep each of you in the love of the Truth!
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year in Jesus Name from Glorious Light Ministries.
