A Change, A Shift, A Time that is NEW after the Fall

I am seeing the reality of the Dying Church.   It lost it's leaven long ago, it took this long to kill it off for lack of substance.

The real church will arise. It will look different.  I can't tell you precisely what it will look like, but it's not yet defined.  It's organic. Rising out of burning hearts of Love for God and his people.

Many will mourn and wail for it's death..but the new rising out of the rubble will be powerful.

It makes me think of this from the Revelation 18:

Lament Over Fallen Babylon

18 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted:
“‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’
    She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
    a haunt for every unclean bird,
    a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
For all the nations have drunk
    the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
    and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

Warning to Escape Babylon’s Judgment

Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“‘Come out of her, my people,’
    so that you will not share in her sins,
    so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
for her sins are piled up to heaven,
    and God has remembered her crimes.
Give back to her as she has given;
    pay her back double for what she has done.
    Pour her a double portion from her own cup.
Give her as much torment and grief
    as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
    ‘I sit enthroned as queen.
I am not a widow;
    I will never mourn.’
Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
    death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
    for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

If we are warned to come out of her, it must mean we were in her.  She is a false bride.

John Belt: Simply Living With a Thankful Heart

John BeltWe can never underestimate the power of simple "thanksgiving". Did you know that the more thanks that you give to God the closer you come to His heart?
The truth is that if we don't live a life of thankfulness then it is almost guaranteed we will revert to a life of grumbling and complaining. When we give thanks we are welcoming the Presence of His Spirit in our lives which, in turn, opens our eyes to see more of His goodness! This makes us want to give Him thanks even more.
No gravityGiving thanks to God takes us higher in His Presence.
We really do enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. It is all true that you can't really praise God unless you are thankful.
Take some time to think of things to be thankful for today. If you know Him that is enough to be overwhelmingly thankful for!
7 "P"s for Your Life
Here are 7 powerful words that begin with "P" that I've connected with some Scriptures for you to chew on. Just meditating on the Word has a powerful effect on our lives
(Psalm 1).
2 Peter 1:4 "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."
2 Corinthians 13:4 "For though He was crucified through weakness, yet He liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God toward you."
Philippians 4:6 "Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
James 1:4 "But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."
Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God."
Psalm 34:1 "I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth."
Isaiah 66:12 "For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream."

I know brother Rogers and this is on the money---

Although some attempt to define the hybrid church as being one that embraces technology and the promotion of interactive worship, their claims do-not meet the definition of hybrid. Technology is merely a resource to be used to advance a service, product, purpose, or vision. Interactive worship is nothing new; the bible encourages us all to participate in worship.

Hybrid simply is defined as a person or group of persons produced by the interaction or crossbreeding of TWO UNLIKE CULTURES, traditions, etcetera.

Therefore, within this article when we describe "the church and the world" merging together, it means to fuse two value systems of different cultures which creates a hybrid church.

Presently, within today's church culture, many emerging Christian leaders are being conceived in a "hybrid church climate" where the landscape of conception consists of an intermingling of two unlike cultures (the church and the world). This present landscape is not only responsible for conceiving emerging Christian leaders but is equally responsible for seductively seducing and polluting the minds and hearts of some established leaders causing them to validate and sanction the "delusional hybrid church model."

Within the current hybrid church, many who profess the name of Christ are the product of crossbreeding between the two unlike cultures (the church and the world), while alternatively, some individuals who have not been conceived in the fusion church climate are being converted to adapt to the amalgam inclusionistic value system.

This can explain why a large number of so-called Christians cannot and do not see anything wrong with the practice of outright brazen sin or the dumbing down of God's word, because they were either conceived in an admixture church that endorses the integration of the Church and the world or they have been converted by pressure to become relevant or "culturally correct." The hybrid church is committed to the notion that you can "have fun being a Christian" (which is code many times for being in the world and still be apart of the church). This approach makes being a Christian more palatable for those that desire to partake of both cultures.

The genesis of the hybrid church and its design are purely satanic and governed demonically to fulfill its desired goals, which are to mislead and distort the faith of God's people and communicate a brand of counterfeit Christianity (the church and the world coexisting for the inclusion of all men).

The delusional hybrid church is comprised of:

-the acceptance of same sex marriage with openly gay leaders and parishioners:
-the refusal to address sin:
-the acceptance of half-truths:
-the establishment that gain is Godliness:
-the resistance of sound doctrine:
-the promotion of self induce empowerment for selfish gain:
-congregants obsessed with financial prosperity, personal blessings and individual destiny:
-allowing or permitting savage wolves to work among the sheep:
-the merging of all religions:
-the elimination of biblical repentance:
-and judging nothing but accepting everything, just to name a few.

It is important to understand that often these practices are performed concurrently or in conjunction with exercising many bible truths and good deeds, which becomes an effective smokescreen and a lure to draw its victims, while at the same time pacifying their conscious to be willing participants. The underneath current of the hybrid church is to function in an ambiguous manner all while bearing the rejection of Godly absolutes and purportedly demonstrating good works and appealing to man's unstable emotions— which causes them not to even consider or reconcile the merging of the two unlike cultures.

As repugnant as the results are today from the functionality of the hybrid church—the future offspring of this model will not even compare to its former generations if this spiritual apparatus is not challenged head on by righteous men and women of God. The incubator of the hybrid church will be responsible for producing highly professional false prophets, corybantic Christians, with "severe corrupt theology" harboring paganism as the norm. This model will rise to the rank of being a hyper-elite form of Christianity causing men to debate its positions with confidence among society with an established acceptance.

The marriage covenant between the church and the world must be severed and an aggressive return to The Lord Jesus must occur. The actions and decisions we make today will determine the outcome for tomorrow. Our failure to address the apostasy in today's church will definitely have a pernicious impact on tomorrow's church. Don't let history record us as forsaking future generations because we refuse to sacrifice.


And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. (2 Thessalonians 2:11)

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. (James 1:27)

Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4)

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (I John 2:15-17)

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. (Colossians 2:8)

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. (Ephesians 5:11)

If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (John 15:18, 19)

They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (John 17:16, 17)

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:2)

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. (I Corinthians 2:12)

Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. (I John 3:13)

The Lie the Devil tells Religious People... Good Enough

I am weary of people who are in bondage to religious systems when they say, "everyone worships God in their own way" or "not everyone is called to be 'that' radical".  I have heard both of these.  The people who say them are usually people who have found a spiritual rut to their liking and don't want to get out.  The comfort zone of religion has replaced any potential for a rich relationship with the creator of all the universe.  They have that form of Godliness we read about.  They might serve on boards, work in the church, be an elder, clean toilets, usher and a dozen other things.  But when confronted with a higher level of worship or relationship with the true and living God .... that's a show stopper.  Not gonna go there... they don't say it but they won't.

One person even described all that as "Scary".  I guess so.  If you have an encounter with the one that spoke the universe into existence, it might cause just a bit of tremor.  IF there is none... then maybe you haven't yet connected any spiritual dots....yet.

This is not meant to impose guilt, it's just that if you are going to go deeper you gotta GO.  Breakthrough can never come without a breaking up of the old fallow ground.  In this case of old habits.  There is no such thing as incrementalism when it comes to these things.  You take a leap of faith and there is no going back.   It's like salvation... you can't sort of take a half step... You is or you isn't. 

IF your desire is for a higher level of worship in your church or fellowship, you must first become terminally dissatisfied with the level it is now.  You can't be sort of satisfied but wishing and hoping it was better.  Wishing and hoping is for children.  You cannot get a vision for the NEXT in worship unless you see and experience it for yourself.  Once you have, you will never go back again.  You will have holy discontent until the change you desire comes to pass.

The Devil HATES that people might become passionate worshippers of God.  Lifting the name of Jesus. Proclaiming his Blood shed.  In the Holy Ghost. In Spirit and Truth.  He will do all he can to discourage anyone from going deeper.  He will keep trying to convince you that what you have isn't perfect but it's good enough.  It's his big lie.

You know it's a lie, but it's really hard to change.  The answer is to expose yourself to real worship, the kind that stirs you to the bottom.  Sure you might get a tingle now and then from a good hymn, but the kind that drives you to your knees in tears or causes you to leap expecting to fly around the room... that's another level.

So what's it gonna be?  Stay where your are in worship limbo.. or begin a lifelong quest for NEXT?

Bob Hartley with Francis Low: "My Church will Bring Forth True Reformation, the Revealing of My Heart and My Ways for Cities and Nations"

Bob HartleyThe Following word from Bob Hartley was scribed by Francis Low:
Radiant, Redeemed Cities and Nations and Hope Reformers
God has repeatedly revealed to Bob the vision of radiant cities and nations, and hope reformers who were on a hill looking at these cities and nations, which had been transformed. These hope reformers had the wisdom to worship Him for Who He really is and had the strength and confidence not to be changed by the atmosphere and culture of a city or nation; but instead were able to effect transformative change to the atmosphere and culture of cities and nations.
Bob saw radiant cities and nations on the earth that had invited Him in, where the atmosphere of these cities and nations were filled with His presence and His glory; where the cultures of these spheres and arenas of these cities had been radically transformed, and the evil mist of despair, hopelessness, fear, and cynicism in these cities had been obliterated; and instead there was radiant hope, health, healing, joy, abundance of peace and truth, creativity, prosperity, and a place where good things thrived and flourished.
And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. Isaiah 61:4
For the past seventeen years, God gave Bob recurring dreams where Bob would see Jesus coming out of cities, running up to him, and telling him that these cities would not let Him help them. Jesus was saddened by this and said to Bob, "I really want to help them and give them My gifts," but they did not know how He was to be invited in.
Cities looked like AuschwitzBob was perplexed by these dreams and did not really know how to respond to the Lord. He then saw over Jesus' shoulder cities which looked like Auschwitz villages; although functioning, they were severely emaciated and depleted in hope.
But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Matthew 9:36
These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. Matthew 15:8
About two months ago, while Bob was visiting Australia and New Zealand, he had an open vision; however, this time in this open vision, when Jesus ran up to Bob, the Lord was like a young child with great joy exploding from Him, and He said to Bob with great excitement, "They are NOW receiving Me and My gifts."
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17
Beautiful, radiant cityBob then looked over Jesus' shoulder, and this time he saw beautiful and radiant cities which were filled with the glory of Heaven. It was absolutely stunning! These cities were no longer desolate places or wastelands but are now His habitation, His heart and joy.
Inviting Jesus in NOW
Jesus said to Bob, "It is NOW that many nations and cities will invite Me in, and they will get their true identity in Me, and Jeremiah 33:9-11 will be fulfilled."
"Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it."
Thus says the LORD: "Again there shall be heard in this place – of which you say, 'It is desolate, without man and without beast' – in the cities of Judah, in the streets of Jerusalem that are desolate, without man and without inhabitant and without beast, the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who will say:
"'Praise the LORD of hosts, for the LORD is good, for His mercy endures forever' – and of those who will bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause the captives of the land to return as at the first," says the LORD. Jeremiah 33:9-11

Bob saw many hope reformers from nations who are now responding to the Lord appropriately. They are now inviting Him into their cities and nations by asking for God Himself to come and abide with them (see John 1:38-39).
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12
"I Have an Awesome Variety of Gifts"
Receive gifts from Jesus"How is this going to happen?" Bob asked Jesus. Jesus replied, "I am going to give them gifts, which are like building kits and a blueprint for the Church to be the Kingdom Church. My Church will bring forth true reformation, the revealing of My Heart and My Ways for cities and nations."
And when the queen of Sheba had seen all the wisdom of Solomon, the house that he had built, the food on his table, the seating of his servants, the service of his waiters and their apparel, his cupbearers, and his entryway by which he went up to the house of the LORD, there was no more spirit in her. 1 Kings 10:4-5
Then I arose in the night, I and a few men with me; I told no one what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem; nor was there any animal with me, except the one on which I rode. Nehemiah 2:12
Jesus then said to Bob, "I have an awesome variety of gifts."
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established. Romans 1:11
The LORD has opened His armory, and has brought out the weapons of His indignation; for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. Jeremiah 50:25
Through these gifts, the Lord will move the Church from where she is presently at to a Kingdom reformational place. Jesus said He will give His shepherds these divine building kits and they will understand how to release Kingdom callings, messages, and feedings that are appropriate for this hour. There will be unique worship and offerings to God in the gates in the city, where hope reformers will be released to bring God's Presence, His heart, and His ways into cities and nations at this time (see Micah 4:1-2).
It is Time for Hope Reformers to Partner with God
Here in this recent encounter, the Lord turned Bob's eyes toward a number of nations. What the Lord revealed to Bob was so wonderful and glorious it took Bob's breath away! The Lord showed Bob a number of nations that are now inviting Jesus in, and that He was now going to reveal His specific callings and identities for these nations in accordance with the counsel of His heart.
Callings of God on nationsBob was able to share this at the recent Open Heavens conference at Bethel in Redding, California, where representatives from approximately 40 nations were present. The Lord graciously and powerfully confirmed to many at this conference His callings for these nations and to the people who were called to help bring forth radiant, hope-filled cities in nations. (Photo courtesy: FBUSD)
These are some of the nations Bob saw:
– Affectionate Australia!
– Courageous China, a nation that will see God as King!
– Endearing Egypt!
– Faithful France!
– Intimate Italy!
– Intentful Iran!
– Infectious India!
– Irresistible Indonesia!
– Loving Lebanon!
– Nations of Exciting Europe!
– Near Norway!
– Sensitive Spain!
– Soaring Scotland!
– Sweet Syria!
– Tender Turkey!
– United in God, the United States of America!
– Zealous Zimbabwe!

It is time for hope reformers to partner with God by coming into agreement and alignment with the Lord of the nations!

Jeff Jansen: Being Fully Persuaded - Walk Out the Word of the Lord

As most of us already know the Church is in a great season of transition, which means it is individually as well as corporately, nationally and globally. Last month I released a word that the year 5774 was a year of "OPEN DOORS & LADDERS" and that as we transition out of the last season, we must tie up loose ends so as to not bring the problems of the old into the new season. I received an overwhelming response from people globally thanking me for that word.

Being Fully Persuaded

"Being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised." Romans 4:21
This is an exciting time for many as change always brings new opportunities and a fresh disposition in God to find refreshing from the Lord. But you must set your face like flint and be fully persuaded in your decision. You need to understand that as you are moving into the place of the new, not all will share your new found happiness and joy and that some might even try to oppose or even stop you if they can!

As we are serving the Lord in our jobs, ministries and life, others learn to depend on us for the jobs that we do and rightfully so. They've learned to depend on us and become comfortable that we work above and beyond their expectations, so, in effect, to bless them and their businesses and ministries.
When the time comes for a change many find it hard to believe that it is the will of the Lord for you and call it "not God" simply because they are losing a key component to their success and blessing. It's at this point that some will try to persuade you to rethink or abandon your plan of action. But I say to you: BE FULLY PERSUADED and HOLD THE COURSE – for the Lord is calling you up and out to a new place where He can bless you greatly!

Remember Jacob and Laban

In Genesis chapter 31, Laban caught up with Jacob as he had left in the middle of the night according to the word of the Lord to leave Syria. Jacob had been under Laban's hand for fourteen years and everything that Jacob did for him was tremendously blessed.

When Laban was told that Jacob had fled in the middle of the night, he became enraged, for Jacob had left with his two daughters and grandchildren, along with camels, donkeys, sheep and goats, and men and women servants that he obtained under Laban's hand. Laban caught up with Jacob intending to do him harm and bring him back to Syria, but Laban was warned by the Angel of the Lord to not touch a hair on his head because Jacob was His inheritance. So instead, Laban blessed Jacob and released him into his destiny.

Vulnerability in Transition

Throughout Scripture we can see the most vulnerable place for God's people has always been in a season of transition – moving from one place to another.
Pharaoh changed his mind in setting the Hebrews free from Egypt and pursued Moses in the wilderness to take them back to the mud pits of Egypt when they were at their most vulnerable marching in the wilderness (Exodus 14).

The Amalekites tried to overtake the Hebrews in the wilderness and destroy them as they were on their way to Mt. Sinai to worship the Lord. Joshua and Hur had to hold Moses' arms up until Amalek was destroyed and retreated into the wilderness (Exodus 17).

As newly anointed King David was transitioning into the promise that he would rule all of Jerusalem, Hebron and Judah, he found himself hiding in caves and caverns. Javelins were hurled at him from the hand of Saul and eventually being hunted like a dog throughout Israel because of the anointing and favor that was upon him in the season of great transition (1 Samuel 16-31).

Walk Out the Word of the Lord

Just because we receive a word about transition doesn't mean it's going to be easy. We have to walk it out. The enemy of your soul does not want you to make this journey and get to the next level in God. But I can assure you that all of Heaven is available to you as you begin to make your journey in God. The Lord will send His Psalm 34 "Angel of the Lord" that is around those that fear Him.

Despite what it might look like in the natural, obey the word of the Lord and get to the place where the Lord is calling you. When you do, your enemies will become spectators as they will only be able to watch as the Lord pours out blessing and favor upon you for His delight is with you (Psalm 91).

Your Destiny is NOT to Perish

In April of 2009 I was given a word from the Lord on the perishing of the saints.  I had to look pretty hard this morning to find it.  I did finally.  It matters because once again I see good Godly men and women on the path of perishing.  Oh, they'll get heaven.  They have eternal life, but their purpose, the reason for being here has been killed off by the enemy.  Discouragement, derailment, defilement, distraction and diversion have all combined to crush them on this side of the veil.  The enemy of their souls having lost them to the glory of eternity makes the decision to at least cause them to become neutralized on this side of the veil.  That is as much Perishing as anything.  The true battle is in our minds, in our spirits, in our every day life.... or we perish.  Here's what the Lord said in April of 2009:

"The devil comes to rob you of your life. He is out to kill, steal and destroy. Even from MY people. He wants to see to it they PERISH right here, right now. Not about hell, it's about living your purposes in ME! When you were born again you received ETERNAL Life, that is you entered into the no end and no beginning eternal now that I live in but you also, from the moment you stepped from time into eternity entered into EVERLASTING life. You had a beginning. But now you will go on Forever. Yes in heaven, but in the results of the divine purpose for which you were created on earth in your generation and all those that come after you. It's that life more than anything the Devil wants to keep you from, even though you will be with ME in heaven forever, he wants to destroy your Purpose on earth, to cause it to PERISH".

You cannot expect worldly fleshly deliverance from spiritual bondage... the ones that are robbing your of life.. of causing you to perish.

Prophesies that contain a timetable are usually wrong

I have been involved as a prophet for a long time now.  I see things, they are real, they come to pass...but I have learned a bitter lesson.  TIME is not a function of the prophetic utterance.  This is a common misunderstanding the causes many people to doubt the prophetic.

Now to be clear, sometimes a prophetic utterance can contain a timetable.  I think of Daniel and the interpretation of the writing on the wall telling the new young king that he would lose his life and his kingdom that very day (Daniel chapter 5), or the prophet Elisha telling the King of Samaria that in less than a day food would be plentiful in a city where people were cooking and eating babies.
2 Kings 7
1Elisha replied, “Hear the word of the Lord. This is what the Lord says: About this time tomorrow, a seah  of the finest flour will sell for a shekel  and two seahs  of barley for a shekel at the gate of Samaria.”
2The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the man of God, “Look, even if the Lord should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?”
“You will see it with your own eyes,” answered Elisha, “but you will not eat any of it!”

Those are words of knowledge as much as prophetic.  MOST of the prophesies in the first 39 books of the Bible are glimpses of eternal things  ...  timeless.

 It's important because, I see so many prophets go out on a limb with something that is accrate for occurance, but inaccurate for timing.  Real prophets see into eternity.  It's like seeing a picture of what will be as it is accomplished but without any way to understand when. 

Yet people of God who live in TIME somehow demand of prophets WHEN.  They are not satisfied what will happen, they want to know how soon.

There are many prophetic things I have seen penned at the hand of prophets I know and respect.  YET some have not yet come to pass....yet.  For that they are despised as prophets.  I'm not so quick to judge.   That's why it is so dangerous to attempt to impose the old testament standard of prophecy. Deuteronomy 18:22.  Deuteronomy 13:1-5.  How would you even KNOW if something won't come to pass...eventually?  Not subject to time. If that Old Testament standard were in force Isaiah, Zechariah, Zephaniah, Micah would have been stoned to death or at least shunned because the prophetic announcements they made about the coming messiah never came to pass in their lifetime. 

A prophet who sees prosperity coming in a person's life who is in dire need may see what looks like a photo.  A prosperous person. A person of wealth.  When will be the next question.  A prophet can only describe the what accurately.  The when is far more elusive.

Even the son of man doesn't know the day nor hour Jesus said regarding the end of all things. Matthew 24:36  Yet he walked fully in the prophetic.  When the Disciples asked. He could only describe what it will look like as and when it happens.  That's what the prophetic does.    What not why. 

To understand what and how a prophet sees things.... IF I am shown a photo of the horizon of the Rocky Mountains.. I can see this peak is ahead of that peak.  The next one is behind this one. And so forth.  It's two dimensional.  I see all the peaks, I can tell you what will happen first if you traveled in a straight line just above them, what you would see first, then second and so forth. I can't tell you how long that will take to get the the last peak in my vision field.  I can't tell you how far it is between peaks.  I can just tell you what the look like in the NOW.  Two Dimensional.

That's the nature of seeing into the eternal.  It's all now.  It's as if a photograph were taken of the whole and at one time.  No time interfering.

Absorb the prophetic.  Hear the Prophets and you WILL PROSPER.  Just don't expect them to say WHEN.  Delay is not denial.  Prophetic patience is essential to see full manifestation.


More then once I have spoken to the Lord about a financial need, not begging, not making claims, not in pain, simply doing what the word of God says:

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Phillipians 4:6 nlt

THEN... living in earnest expectation give thanks for all he has done and will do... and let him do it. Don't lack thankfulness for that is a release of his provision.

The first Chapter of Philippians written from a man in Chains in jail is good instruction how those who find themselves as my sister did. No Fear, earnest expectation. Here's the way Paul describes his attitude:

"I will rejoice, for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my EARNEST EXPECTATION and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death". Philippians 1:19-20 nas

My friends testimony:

What a amazing God!!! 2 days ago casually I told the Lord I needed xxx amount of dollars the next day (Friday), Friday came and I get a message from a friend (who had no idea the amount), she said I want to bless you... It was the exact amount on the day when I needed it!!! That's my Daddy!!!!!

"God would NEVER ask me to do something like THAT"

When we say, "God would NEVER ask me to do something like THAT" as a reason why certain things are "Just not done in Church" are we not in fact deciding for God what is or is not Godly?

As a student of the Word you soon realize some pretty crazy things were requested from God in obedience. If God asks you to do something your flesh doesn't want to do... will we call it ungodly to cover up our unwillingness to be used. I'm not going to give examples, but if you have lived and worked around the world (as I have) in different cultures, with different standards of what is or is not "Godly" you begin to realize that we have put a whole bunch of human reason and flesh into our boundaries of what is or is not acceptable.

This is not a hypergrace argument, it is a question we must ask before we begin to define for others what is "acceptable". I will admit there are some things that happen among Christians that make me a little nuts. YET... how can I decide if he or she has not been asked to walk around naked for three years ... or not ... and is just being obedient.

Isaiah 20
1In the year when King Sargon of Assyria sent his commander in chief to capture the Philistine city of Ashdod,a 2the Lord told Isaiah son of Amoz, “Take off the burlap you have been wearing, and remove your sandals.” Isaiah did as he was told and walked around naked and barefoot.
3Then the Lord said, “My servant Isaiah has been walking around naked and barefoot for the last three years. This is a sign—a symbol of the terrible troubles I will bring upon Egypt and Ethiopia.b 4For the king of Assyria will take away the Egyptians and Ethiopiansc as prisoners. He will make them walk naked and barefoot, both young and old, their buttocks bared, to the shame of Egypt. 5Then the Philistines will be thrown into panic, for they counted on the power of Ethiopia and boasted of their allies in Egypt! 6They will say, ‘If this can happen to Egypt, what chance do we have? We were counting on Egypt to protect us from the king of Assyria.’”

November 13, 2013 Steve Shultz: An Official Retraction of a Q & A Section from My Book, "Can't You Talk Louder, God?" - Subject of "Character vs. Gifting"

Dear Elijah List Readers (and all those who you choose to forward this to):
This official retraction needed to be done quite a while ago – so first, let me apologize that it's taken me several years to do it. In my first book, "Can't You Talk Louder, God" there is a section called, "Debugging the Prophetic". In that section, there was a question that reads:
"I hear that God is more interested in character than gifting. I don't know if I'll ever have enough character to be qualified to prophesy."
In my attempt to give a balanced response to that statement, I unintentionally gave an unbalanced one instead. Let me elaborate:
My desire was to explain that since God created and gave both "spiritual gifts" AND "good character" – and since we all will be working to improve throughout our lives both our character and our ability to operate in the gifts – I suggested that we should begin to practice our gifts and at the same time work on our growth of character. The problem was in my wording, and it mistakenly gave readers the impression that I was openly teaching that one should begin to publicly operate in their gifts, even with undeveloped character or even with hidden sin present in their lives.
Nothing could have been further from my intentions but the implication could have easily been taken the wrong way! Because of this I must retract the entire response and then correct it here and now!
The Word of God clearly states:
James 3:1 "Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment."
Teaching is one of my strongest gifts, so when I make a mistake in what I teach others, however unintentional, then, as with any teacher, the judgment is stricter for me. One brother has been quite persistent with me for a couple of years to get this corrected and I resisted him because I knew my intentions were not to communicate untruths. I am now grateful for his persistence in having me follow through in this matter.
The Importance of Good Character
At this writing, I'm nearly 60 years old and over the course of decades, along with most of you, I've seen the "highway of ministry" strewn with the "bodies" of far too many fallen ministers and ministries, both men and women, most of whom either rushed into ministry before they were mature enough, or before they had good character developed and tested – to make themselves ready to publicly serve God's people.
Others have fallen who've stayed in ministry far too long. Instead of taking a break from ministry because of long-term sin issues in their lives, instead of seeking help and restoration in their lives...many continued in sin. Eventually God, after numerous warnings, allows some secret sins that were not being dealt with in their lives – to become exposed publicly. With far too many ministers of the Gospel, when secret sin is not quickly dealt with in a public ministry – things will inevitably spin out of control until there is an explosive scandal that hurts many thousands in the Body of Christ.
Now to be clear, I'm not referring to sins and mistakes made along the way that we all make. I'm speaking of scandalous sins that are continuing and that are hurting multiple parties.
Paul speaks in Romans about the importance of character being developed through tribulations and perseverance. Too many Believers want the recognition in a public forum before they've been tested through "tribulation and perseverance" which brings about "proven character" so needful in the Kingdom of God.
Romans 5:3-5 "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
Timothy was instructed not to "too hastily" lay hands upon anyone...that is, hands laid upon one to release him or her into ministry.
1 Timothy 5:22 "Do not lay hands upon anyone too hastily and thereby share responsibility for the sins of others; keep yourself free from sin."
By so doing – laying hands upon "hastily", Timothy (or whoever does this) would thereby share in the responsibility for the same sins committed by those too quickly released.
In other words, if a ministry is too quick to send out a man or woman whose character has not been carefully tested and discerned over time – if that person falls into sin because of this haste, then...those who laid hands on this person(s) will share in the responsibility for the sins committed by those who they purposely rushed into ministry.
This is a solemn warning to leaders that is not often discussed among the Body, publicly or privately. A man or woman may have been splendidly gifted from birth by God – with all kinds of spiritual gifts. These gifts are "irrevocable" – meaning God will not remove the gifts, even from a person who has stumbled or fallen:
Romans 11:29 "...for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable."
But just because a person still possesses their original God-given gifts even after a fall, does not mean that person who has just fallen, should still be in public ministry – not until they are carefully restored by mature leaders, who, over time, have walked this person back to wholeness and repentance. This restoration process is normally overseen by a person's own local fellowship, normally by the pastoral team!
Now, it should be noted that a person who possesses spiritual gifts may often use those gifts, even during their restoration process, within their private life and with people they come into contact with. For example, one who shows mercy, gives to the poor, or prays for the sick, and so on...will find that even during a restoration process, he or she can still, in a non-public way, operate with their gifts within their own private comings and goings – whether at the grocery store or in the park, etc.

A Prevalent Character Issue throughout the Worldwide Body
James also gives such a sober warning – that many leaders should tremble at the possibility of jealousy or ambition lurking within their own heart. As for myself, I tremble at this possibility and I find myself checking and double-checking if there is any possible bitterness, any jealously, arrogance, any selfishness, or any selfish ambition. Desiring to avoid "navel-gazing" in myself, I nevertheless find myself being fearful lest the Lord would find in me these character "strongholds".
James 3:13-15 "Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic."
Examine or Test Yourself
2 Corinthians 13: 5-6 "Test [or examine] yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you – unless indeed you fail the test? But I trust that you will realize that we ourselves do not fail the test."
Stated again, without over-thinking it – without undue navel-gazing, each one of us should regularly take stock, test, or examine ourselves. How is our faith? Do we have selfish ambition? Pride or arrogance? Are there secret temptations or sins lying at our heart's door? We must deal a sudden and harsh death blow to these sins and character issues, putting them under the Blood of Jesus by the Power of the Holy Spirit. If we judge ourselves with the Holy Spirit's help, we will avoid a greater judgment by others, and we'll receive God's great Mercy.
The quality of our individual character – the degree to which we have submitted our weak character areas (in fact, ALL character areas) to the correcting process of the Holy Spirit – to this degree alone, is there safety in public ministry. Indeed, to the same degree that we've handed these character issues to the process of the Cross of Jesus our personal walk in the Kingdom of God on solid ground.

The Sin of the FREE LUNCH

   There are three Bible Accounts you don't hear preached on very often.  It's not that they are unknown, just uncomfortable to preach.  They seem unrelated. There are interpretations that go all over the place I have read.  Yet there is a common thread that has been lost in all the preaching, twisting and distortions of these scriptures.  In fact, there is a cultural reason to avoid these three.  The Prophetic Truth:  The whole of the edification of scripture must be inculcated into our culture or it will not create the changes necessary for the abundant life we can have.

Here are the three stories:

Genesis 23:1-20:  Abraham's wife Sarah Dies at 127 years old.  He weeps.  He wants to bury her in Canaan.  He goes to the Hittite elders to appeal to them to allow him to buy land to bury her... a cave at the end of a field.  They want to just give it to him. A gift.  For free.  They insist. He argues that he wants to pay for it.  They go back and forth.  The owner of the cave at the end of the field says that the cave is worth ten pounds of silver.  Abraham calls witnesses and pays him in full.  Takes title to the land.  Land he could have had for nothing.  Sarah is buried in the Cave Abraham bought.

1 Chronicles 21:1-30: King David ill advisedly takes a census of the people.  In reality to discover how rich and powerful his nation was.  It angers God.  God tells David he will punish him.  70,000 people die.  David sees the angel of the Lord with sword drawn about to destroy Jerusalem.  The Lord stops the Angel.  This vision of the Angel takes place on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.   David knows he must make a sacrifice to God on that place.  He goes to the Jebusite and asks to buy the land.  Araunah offers it to David for free.  Insists in fact.  David says something KEY to the story," 
But King David replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on buying it for the full price. I will not take what is yours and give it to the Lord. I will not present an offering that cost me nothing!”
He could have got away in this deal without the 600 gold pieces it cost him.  Yet he paid in full, sacrificed and the Lord relented.  Would that have happened if he had sacrificed without paying for the land?

2 Samuel 23:8-17   David and his mighty men are fighting a battle.  Near Bethlehem.  He in the heat of battle thinks about the well of Bethelem, 15 And David said longingly, “Oh, that someone would give me water to drink from the well of Bethlehem that is by the gate!”  Three of those who had joined him some time before at the cave of Adullam broke thru the ranks, at risk of life and limb and got water from the well and brought it to David.  He doesn't drink it, but rather pours it out as an offering to the Lord.  Seemed strange.. but there was a principle at work.  David says:
“Far be it from me, O Lord, that I should do this. Shall I drink the blood of the men who went at the risk of their lives?” Therefore he would not drink it. These things the three mighty men did.  
The water was not his, it was purchased at great cost.  He would be getting a free drink at someone else's expense.

In all three of these stories there is one thread of truth.  Something for nothing isn't Godly.  Getting something from someone, even given to you in good faith is bad faith.  Our culture no longer understands this.  We must have a return of the principle that if you get, there has to be a price to be paid for it.  There is no such thing free lunch is a Biblical Principle to which our culture must return.

The truth of this must be restored or our culture will die.... and that is the most Prophetic Thing I will say today.

Kim Clement: "Hell Itself Has Focused On this Nation" [The USA] PLUS: "At This Very Moment There Is a Light Shining Upon Asia"

Kim ClementOctober 19, 2013 – From The Den:
"No! No! No further! Hell itself, Hell itself, [and its] dark princes have focused on this nation as never before. Princes and principalities have focused on this nation as never before! Throughout the millennium they have watched for this day that Daniel saw, this day that Isaiah saw, that Jeremiah saw – confused as to what they were speaking of. And I raised this nation for one purpose – that light would shine, that strongholds would be destroyed.
"They are watching now, and they have already rubbed their hands together, [saying], 'It is done,' [just] as they rubbed their hands together, watching the Son of Man being crucified and saying, 'It is done,' but in three days their aspirations were brought to nothing. AmericaSo it shall be for America! The hopes, and the dreams, and the aspirations, and the prognoses of the darkest forces of Hell that stood when Daniel prophesied, that stood when Jesus appeared, have focused on this nation to bring it to nothing; but because you have stood with Israel and because a remnant of righteous ones have stood and prayed, fire has been withheld from the land to be sent and dispersed to the forces of Hell," says the Spirit of God. "No more!"

"Asia, Asia!" Words for Singapore, China and Japan
"Asia, Asia – is it strange that I would send My prophet to carry out of the land of China little souls? Is this just a good work, or could it be what I told My prophets to do ages ago: one to marry a woman because of the lesson he would learn; others to eat certain food; others to abstain from food; others to go to nations; the other to go into Babylon?
Asia, Asia!"There are enemies of this nation that shall become friends of this nation. At this very moment there is a light shining upon Asia, and God's Spirit is going into Singapore, watching as He raises up from the dust again little voices that will bring light throughout the region, and China and Japan shall have a torch."
I see a torch; I see a torch in between Japan and China, and it is consumed with oil. It is burning more and more. There is a fire that is extended to consume. But God said, "I shall arise and I will dampen out the flames, and from the ashes I will raise up voices that shall bring light to this nation. Do not think that you know everything! Do not think that you know everything because of the present."
God says, "Look at the bigger picture – for a moment, chastisement upon this nation; but after chastisement what does My Word say? Out of the humility shall I bring honor, life, light, healing. And the Church is about to enter prosperity for a long season because of My Son, Yeshua, Yeshua, Yeshua, Yeshua!"
A word has just come in regarding Japan and China – fire – and how a fire was supposed to come into this nation to consume, and it was taken and transferred.

Christian Superstition

We need to comprehend the supernatural all around us. Angels. Demons. Portals. Open Heaven. Power of words. Blessing and cursing. God given gifts. Sovereign moves of God. We must grasp these thing, believe them and expect them in our lives.

Yet God has given us all some measure of intellect. HE expects us to use it. We need to stop looking at the whole of creation as some huge construct that we superstitiously access by using chants and incantations. Superstition is a demonic ploy that keeps people in poverty, lack, fear and bondage. I'll have to ask what the name of the demon of superstition is. I'm sure it has one. And there is an origin. This doesn't happen just in Qualla Lampoon someplace. We have lots of horoscopes, Ouija boards, psychics in storefronts and all kinds of voodoo right here in Chicagoland, and in fact right here in St Chuck psychics abound. People really are superstitious and it is costing them everything. There are Christian superstitions as well. You see them in the church. The do these three things.. theology you hear preached from pulpits. People carry crucifixes. Have crosses around their neck. And all kings of soft christian superstitions. Even seed faith teaching is a form of superstition.

Yet, the breakthrough comes when we recognize that God made a world that is orderly and subject to rational investigation. That new products from the earth are wonderful blessings from God, not exploitation. That every new development created or discovered is at it's root a gift from God. Superstition will say otherwise and discourage innovation and the new.

Here's what God says:

I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. Proverbs 8:12

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
Isaiah 45:3

The OLD Wineskin of Prosperity Teaching is Dead. An Apostolic Portal of Prosperity is just Ahead

I hesitated to put this in writing.  It could become a form of manipulation in the wrong hands.  Many in ministry are not ready to grasp what God is saying.. yet... there is truth here and IF we can apprehend this, we can change the fellowship for which we are responsible for the better.  I shared this encouragement at the Apostolic Round table.  It was a safe place to do so.  This is more open.  Yet.... its worth the risk.

The Apostolic, the role of an Apostle is as a leader, a head.  It is a father like placement in the Body of Christ.  An Apostle brings forth sons and daughters of the King.  He operates in a unique authority... yet it is not related to him or her, it is related to the KING under whom he operates.. the creator of all the universe.

As such, a special imperative is available if the Apostle understands it.  Knowing is one thing.. Operating in it is another.

Jesus carried this.  Demons cried out when He entered into their presence.  They recognized and bowed down. 

Peter as an apostle carried this.  His very shadow healed people over whom it passed. 

Why did these things happen.  Was it an anointing?  We would quickly answer that it was.. but that is about the man.  Was it because of an intense expectation on the part of those so touched by Peter's shadow?  Yes, faith is strong and it doesn't take much in that atmosphere.  But there is something more.  Like Jacob who saw a ladder ascending and descending, the presence of an Apostolic office (if it's genuine) manifests certain God opened Portals.  Places where openness happens. 

It's not just the authority of the Apostolic office that carries this weight that opens these portals of healing, deliverance, provision, protection, blessings, peace and yes, Prosperity.  It is the father headship present in the authority to bless, to release, to created by declaration and the creative word an expectation.

The person who operates in this gift does not have to OWN the outcome of the blessing he provides.  You don't have to be healed to operate in authority for healing.  Smith Wigglesworth suffered terribly in his body, yet was powerful in authority.  In fact if you look at the word, you will see that many times God places men of authority in places where they are outside of what they thought they would be.  King David was hiding out in the Cave of  Adullam and men who were in debt distressed and discouraged came to him.  In the story King David (not yet on the throne) says, I am a POOR MAN.  Yet the men who came within a few years became powerful and prosperous men.  Not because David had anything to give, but because of the authority God had invested in him.  He didn't need to be rich to make others wealthy.

We don't understand the old wineskin that was word of faith prosperity teaching. Seed. Give to get.  Send $58 and God will send you ten, twenty a hundred fold return.  Those days are gone.  Sure the principles of sowing and reaping are valid, but they are very much a wineskin Father is discarding.

This is NOT condemnation.  It's all we knew.  For the kingdom to advance there will need to be money found.  We did what we could.  We always knew that the breakthrough our congregations needed was in our pews.  That it was in our hands to find a way to release the abundance of grace for wealth... we just kept following the leaders that went before and we have missed the most essential truth.  Authority is what brings healing, deliverance, wholeness, peace, joy, Shalom, and release. It also brings prosperity, protection and provision.

Part of what has driven the old wineskin ways of prosperity teaching is a flawed eschatology.  One that talks of a soon coming end of the world. One that will end in rapture or some such. That when the Anti Christ comes money will be no good.  You might as give it away now.

Many ministries have focus that operate in an authority level:
  • Healing
  • Deliverance
  • Prophecy
  • Teaching
  • Glory Manifestation
  • Worship 
  • Spiritual Warfare
  • Old Wineskin Prosperity teaching

As I list these, if you have watched Christian TV, or been around for a while, you can put a name and a face to each of these categories.  Like Benny Hinn in Healing. 

What makes these things work, even without the authority to open a portal for them?  Expectation. Yet the authority and the expectation driven by a high faith are what work together to open the portal.  Great Faith Jesus called it. Sometimes that comes after high levels of worship.   People see themselves as coming out of their current situation and into a better destiny.

That's what happened as Peter walked the streets at sundown a shadow being cast over people receiving healing.

There is much good in Preaching and Teaching expectation.  One such that teaches this is Joel Osteen.  You may not agree with what you see as a soft gospel message.  I am not here to argue that.  I am saying that while he may not operate in deliverance his encouragement has people in the seats in the flock he is over probably at a higher level than many of our churches.  You can make it he says.  He doesn't teach old wineskin prosperity.

If we are going to help people enter into that portal of prosperity that opens when an apostolic authority is present and expectation is high, we will have to teach our people a level of overcoming higher than they are in now.

A level that allows them to bounce back after hard times.  That says like the Apostle Paul, I'm knocked down but not knocked out.  That helps people develop a forehead like flint that doesn't lurch from crisis to crisis and setback to setback always the victim.  We can help them see themselves higher and develop the earnest expectation that Ephesians talks of.

If you stand as an Apostle before your people, the expectation is high, there will open a portal of prosperity that as you bless them, never cursing them for not giving, bless them and declare goodness over their lives, you will see a release of new levels of prosperity you never thought possible.  Here's the part you need to grasp as an Apostle.  You don't have to be experiencing it yourself to release it for others.  In fact, it's the upside down Kingdom that often manifests in exactly that way. It's time to begin to Bless, Empower, Encourage and allow for training that helps them access the power to get wealth.

Too much of the Body of Christ lives in a fantasy that some wealth of the wicked is going to write them a check.  That the next scheme presented them is their breakthrough.   It can happen, but probably won't. God will use whatever you have in your hands and if you expect... if your people expect and when the portal is open they enter into it the angels will ascend an descend bringing exactly what is needed.

The old wineskin is dead and not a second too soon.  The new Apostolic wineskin is here. 

Enter in, open the portal, develop expectation and watch miracles happen right before your eyes.  The same power that raised JESUS from the dead, healed the sick and destroyed works of the devil in the first century, is still there.  Let's do this thing.

Atheist Has A Vivid Dream of Heaven

(Originally posted on 27 December 2012 03:02 AM ) Author Unknown, just initials AC


I have read many many dreams and visions in the last decade, and I have to admit, this ranks as among the best. It is the most plausible, inspiring, uplifting, heartwarming testimony I have ever read.

About two thirds down the page you will read this line:

"Your words.. born in the fires of agony and trials.. will touch many lives.. and also save many lives.. "

How true these words are, as it touched my life, as I can identify with it.  I can't vouch for this.  I can't tell you I know any more than what I see here, but I do know the God of whom he speaks... and much of this is true.  I have had a vision like this myself.  


I was raised an atheist.

Utterly godless.

Not even agnostic.

No gods.. fairies.. Santa's or bunnies...Believed nothing at all.

I saw all the trouble and confusion it caused and wanted nothing to do with it.

I see Christians always fighting and debating and being hypocrites all the time.

I see new agers not really having a clue what it is they actually believe in, and going in circles.

I see all the other religions all banging their head on a wall but achieving nothing but headaches.

I wanted no part in it and still don't.

But I had a dream / vision when I was 15 that changed my life, but it was not until about a year ago it took effect, and according to the dream it will not be until after tomorrow (28 December 2012), when I turn 44, that it finds fulfilment.

I was 15...still a kid.. but wondering what it was all about, seeing as everything was so totally pointless and without a reason or a goal.

Being an atheist is the most pointless life one can live.. so empty of purpose or meaning.

And like all kids I needed purpose and meaning.

So the dream./ vision...

It was September the 28th 1984....a day I will never forget, because its the day my life was taken right OUT of my hands, and I realised that none of us really have a choice...only a will directed by the one who makes the choices.

I remember so clearly.. sitting on my bed that night...looking out the window at the stars. Wondering why they were there.. what purpose they served.. if any at all. I remember asking the same thing of myself.. what was my purpose.. did I have a purpose...or was it all pointless.. an illusion.. meaningless and dead?

That night I lay down on my bed.. still wondering what it was all about... and I had a dream....or a vision.. not sure which but it was incredibly vivid.. I was there.. could feel.. hear.. smell....

Where was I?

(Keep in mind up UNTIL that point I had never even looked into a bible or any religious book.. so what I saw was not previously planted in there)

One moment I was on my bed.. in a half awake half sleep state.. a trance you might call it. That zone you are in where you are still aware but also.. not aware. I found myself about 200 meters in the air that was NOT air as we know it. I looked around in shock...I was there.. this was no dream.. I panicked at first cause I thought I was dead.. and for all I know.. I was.

After adjusting to this "Shock" I was able to look around me.. where I was...and what I saw....Spreading around me in every direction to a horizon that just was not there.. was THE most incredible landscape I have ever seen. No majestic scene on earth comes close to this.. awesome.. the SCOPE of it... endless.. and solid and real.

Vast jungles.. parks.. majestic mighty mountains.. oceans the size of earth itself.. and lakes as big as oceans.

Waterfalls a hundred kilometres high.. mighty rivers packed with life.. crystal clear...the trees...small and great.. colourful.. detailed.. each one unique and some full of flowers of colours vivid and bright.. some full of fruit of weird shapes and hue.

ALL was alive.. in a life that was LIFE.. not just living things.. but LIVING beings.. they were not just alive.. they WERE life in its essence...each leaf.. blade of grass.. creature and fish.. bird and reptile.. were not JUST alive.. its like they WERE EMANATING life...

This mighty and majestic landscape went on and on.

What I thought were small hills in the distance, turned out to be mighty mountain ranges that make the Himalayas look like a badly thought up joke in comparison.

The waterfall immediately to my left upon arrival was (I later found out) over 300 kilometres form where I floated.. and even at that distance it was so utterly magnificent...rising up and up.. above eye level.. like looking UP at a river.. It descended down the side of a "small" (compared to some of the other mountains there) 100 kilometres high cliff face...falling.. cascading.. majestic.. and throwing of rainbows in its mighty mist...

I could go on and on about the details.. but I am going to stick with the main part...and that is.. WHO was standing "Or floating" there beside me.. who until that moment I had not noticed..

I turned to my was this bloke...who I Immediately KNEW was The creator of all I saw. I didn't know his name.. I just KNEW HE was responsible for it all..

He was about 6 foot...medium build.. strong.. yet supple.. he had an air of authority about him.. like a mighty fighter who could whip anyone but with ease.. and KNEW it.. but was humble and gentle and didn't brag about it.

His hair was white...but not from age.. more of a symbol of purity kind of white. Like a judge would wear a white wig as a symbol. But this hair was no wig. It was his own.

He wore a sort of robe.. not ancient.. yet not modern. Like a royal robe of state. Across his chest from right shoulder to left hip was a red/purple sash about 6 inches wide, interwoven with gold threads.

The robe went to just above his ankles. He had sandals on. But not ancient looking. More of a modern look. But in looking there.. at his feet...I saw holes in them...Then with a shock.. I saw his hands.. they too had holes in them.. just at the ends of his wrists.. each hole about half an inch wide. There was no blood and the wounds were not festy or horrible. They.. were worn like a status symbol.. a mark.. more than an annoying wound. I had the urge to kneel.. but realised I didn't have a body to kneel with.

So I just looked at him.. KNOWING he could read every thought...and knew my intent was to kneel if only I could have.

He knew.

He just smiled at me.. joy glittering in his eyes.. eyes.. so.. blue.. gold.. green...all colours.. fire.. eyes of fire.. like an opal of magnificent brilliance.

He seemed to radiate a real.. friendliness.. happiness.. total peace.. yet utter and mighty authority.

You felt at ease with him.. yet so humbled as well.

I finally said to him (Well.. I thought it)...."You are God?"

He said simply..."(I AM)"

I thought to myself "This cant be real.. there IS no "God"... I am imagining all this.. I MUST be..."He smiled even broader.. if that were possible.. like he was amused at my simple yet certain belief in nothing. It was not a snide enjoyment he was feeling.. it was more like you would smile at a toddler who said something cute.

He said, knowing my turmoil and thoughts, "Come.. let me show you your destiny" as we started moving through this "Air" that was not air...gliding off at about 60 k an hour it seemed. I was able to measure the speed we were moving, because we floated over a sort of highway with trees planted at regular intervals along it.

It was a twin highway.. divided in two by a river. The river was about 40 meters across.. clear as crystal.. pure and so inviting. I had the urge to go and swim in it for some reason...even though I didn't actually have a solid body.

The highway was about 15 meters across on each side of the river. And spaced about 200 meters apart were bridges. There were people down there below us.. ordinary .. people.. some dressed in modern garb.. some in robes like togas.. some wearing nothing but light.. if that's possible. All were people.. they looked to be about 25 or so.. healthy.. vibrant.. solid and real.

I saw children as well.. playing in the river.. laughing and jumping off the bridges into the water. Laughter.. lots of laughter and joy. It seemed to permeate this amazing place. Here and there among the people I saw beings.. LIKE people but different. Taller...powerful.. yet gentle. Talking to people.. walking with them.. some carried books and other things. They seems to be instructing.. and also being instructed. Like they were learning as well. ( These, as it turns out, were angels.. and NO.. they DID NOT have wings )

I saw benches.. tables.. set along the river under the trees. People and beings alike would sit and talk.. smiling.. laughing.. some in deep thought or conversation.. some being light-hearted, some being serious.. like they were contemplating some new revelation they had just stumbled upon.

In all it was a very busy.. yet very relaxed scene.

The trees themselves were amazing. Mighty branches.. spreading out in majestic awnings of life over the river and the benches below. I saw fruit in the trees.. gold.. green.. orange.. purple.. blue.. all sorts of colours. People were picking the fruit here and there and casually eating it.. like it was just the "Done" thing...and there were no scraps. There were no pips or skins left over.

People looked up at us as we passed overhead. They waved and smiled.. at BOTH of us.. yes.. I was very visible to them. I was not sure how to wave back.. because I had no body to wave with.

"Jesus" or "Yeshuah" or whatever you want to call him...waved back.. smiling.. laughing.. joyful and at peace with his creatures.

I looked out beyond.. to what was ahead of us. I saw fields. Stretching on and on and on.. I saw lights dotted here and there over these fields.

I asked "Jesus" "What are those lights? "He said.. "They are cities.. or towns. Dwellings and hubs of commerce." "Commerce" I thought? Of what USE is commerce in this place?

He just looked at me and smiled.. and said "you will know in time.. see.. there is our destination" He said.. pointing directly to the end of the highway...

I looked.. way way ahead...seemed like thousands of k's.. into the far distance...there was a bright light.. like a brilliant sunrise.. multi hued.. radiating colours beyond description...and the could FEEL the music coming from it. It was everywhere.. yet I was not actually conscious of it till I concentrated on it. Harmony.. pure harmony.. rising from one stanza to the next.. to reach a crescendo.. only to fade out into the next phase.. ever building to a climax.. but never reaching it.. music without beat.. without end.. timeless.. eternal.. pure..

I was STUNNED...nothing on earth was anything like this music of colour blended with sound...had I had a body I would have exploded in sheer joy at just five seconds of exposure to this eternal symphony...I was surrounded by it from the moment I arrived.. but not until THIS moment had I actually put my focus on it..

I was hooked...

I said (Or thought) in stunned amazement..."WHAT is THAT?"

HE smiled and said simply.. " the capital.. where my father dwells.. and where we are now going"

So on we went. He was talking to me the whole time.. but I was not really paying attention. I was utterly wrapped up with where we were heading.. trying to lose myself in the eternal song...I wanted to BE the song.. to join with it.

But try as I might I could not quite grasp the flow of it. It changed from one moment to the next.. always ascending into a new and unique stanza.. and just when I thought I "Had" it, and was about to hum along with it.. it would blend and change into something new.. and no two stanzas EVER repeated.. each was unique.. each a masterpiece.. each never to be heard again.. as ever new stanzas were created and blended into the whole.. always building.. always growing.. always new.. always.. utterly without description.

He kept speaking to me.. telling me of events to come in my life.. main points and turnings in my life ahead. I was half aware of what he was saying.. but he knew I was lost in the song.

And this was why he waited until I was lost in the song to tell me. Because everything he told me about my life ahead was forgotten on my conscious level.. like a half remembered dream. But as each event actually took place in my life, the memory would surface.. like a vivid Deja Vu.. and it would all be clear...and I would KNOW this event.. good or bad.. was ALL part of the plan.

We travelled for what seemed like days...or hours.. or minutes.. its hard to tell time in a place that has no time. He laid out my entire life before me.. from conception to birth, to the present (That moment when I was 15) to the very end.. which is only a few years away now ..going by the events and their sequence.

Tomorrow I turn 44.. (28 December 2012) THAT year is PIVOTAL for me (AND.. for the world as a whole).

As to why??.. well.. its something he said when we reached the capital. I will get to that soon.. because I want to describe the capital.. its AWESOME.. and one heck of a work of master building and insane architecture..(Insane as in AWESOME.. not crazy). As we drew closer the music did not get "Louder".. it was at the same volume no matter where you were. But the light display that accompanied it grew ever more brilliant.

The colours would flow with the music.. each wave of scintillating fire.. colour fire...wove through the sounds as they emanated from the centre.. like and explosion of choreographed fireworks accompanying the music. The sounds were the colours.. and the colours were the source of the sound.

The centre.. where the brilliance emanated from, still seemed hundreds of kilometres away...still set on this impossible horizon that was not a horizon.. and at this point we reached the outskirts of the main capital.. and WOW....

I saw the first buildings. Modest really. Reasonably "Simple".. compared with what I saw further in. But even these "Simple" structures put to shame anything on earth.

Take your basic hovel there for example...the LOWEST of the simple buildings...I focussed upon one in particular, just to burn into my memory what the LEAST of the creative powers of the master builder was capable of.. It was about the size of your average house here on earth.

It was constructed of pure elements.

There were no bricks or mortar.. no alloys or mixtures. Each part of that building was pure element. For example.. the windows.. framed with a rich ebony like substance, shot through with gold veins.

Each pane was.. what LOOKED like pure diamond.. or crystal. The walls of the house were like a sort of moonstone.. opaque.. yet solid. Light flowed in and through the walls themselves.. like a fibre optic cable in actual application.

The light was taken from all around and magnified throughout the house. The windows would break the light into amazing colours and decorate the interior with rainbows of fantastic hue.. then the walls would absorb and magnify the light, and sent it streaming outward.. to the house next to it.. and the process would repeat.. along each house.. all sharing this amazing visual display and amplifying it to its peak.. only to send it along again to the next dwelling.. and the next...

I was utterly flabbergasted...WHAT a design.. and the mind who thought up this amazing idea of optical brilliance must be unfathomable.

I looked at the creator there next to me...amazed at how brilliant he was.. that even the "Simplest" of his building designs were thousands of light years beyond the most brilliant minds of earth.

I saw Him with an ever increasing respect.. and awe.. He just looked at me and smiled again.. enjoying the moment.. like you would enjoy the look on your child's face as he sees with awe something his father had spent time and effort on constructing JUST for you...a sort of pride of workmanship.. satisfaction in a job well done.

Yes.. he enjoyed making all these constructs.. he really enjoys creating things...and loves to challenge himself in each ones uniqueness from the next.. and each ones amazing simple complexity.

He IS an artist without compare.. and keep in mind.. this was just one of his "SIMPLE" designs...there was far more amazing things ahead as we headed towards the centre of the capital.. I took my focus then off this one house.. and noticed with awe.. again.. HOW the "Suburbs" were designed.

No two houses were the same.. each had it own unique design.. and yet.. each and every house.. some close to others.. some farther apart.. each one when seen from the air as we into a grander pattern.

Have you aver seen a fractal? and structure without end?

It was like that.

The suburbs were woven into an ever expanding pattern of extreme order.. and no two streets.. or houses.. were the same.. but all fit together into an amazing grand work of art. The very colours of the houses.. silver.. gold.. platinum.. marble of all hues.. ebony.. copper.. crystal.. diamond.. amethyst.. citrine.. even a sort of purple metal that I could not name.. all wove together to form an amazing tapestry of design.

Some single storey.. some double.. some triple.. and these were just the OUTTERMOST buildings...the "Simple" ones.. and the light flowing through each house.. from house to house.. flowed from the centre.. the storm of ordered colour and sound.. flowing throughout the houses.. in an ever changing spiral of amazing complexity.. lighting up the entire scene in a kaleidoscope of utter amazement.

I simply could not grasp it all...I looked at my creator again...with awe.. and he just enjoyed the moment.. he even pointed out some unique parts of the design.. like the way the river we had been following all this time was woven into the suburbs in vast spirals.. interwoven waterways...each house having a small part of this river flowing near or through or under it.. feeding the whole.

The main river flowed on ahead...surrounded by the most majestic landscaping I have ever seen.. parks.. fountains.. groves of trees planted in amazing patterns.. according to size and colour.. all woven around the river which was the main theme.. all flowed from the river.. and the river flowed from..... well.. the THRONE.

There.. in the distance.. rising above the houses.. was a building unlike all the others in size. But.. it was also.. easily recognised AS a throne. Hard to explain unless you actually see it. We travelled on and on...following the river...towards the centre.. where the light and sound had its source..

We began to rise up higher.. we reached about.. I would estimate.. about ten kilometres. He did this JUST so I could grasp SOME of the layout.. and even then from that height the city stretched out seemingly forever.. I could NOT see the edge of it.. we were close to the centre now.. only a few hundred kilometres away.

I looked down in awe.. yet again.. as I saw SOME of the overall design. It was indeed a fractal.. a very organic fractal. Spirals of ever increasing complexity.. colours of amazing hue and vibrance flowed majestically through each "Suburb".. blending with the whole in an endless dance of incredible design and workmanship.

The river.. flowing ever straight towards the centre.. the tributaries woven into and through the "Suburbs" like a blue/silver lattice work.. woven INTO the grand design like threads of a complex embroidery.

And everywhere.. people.. LOTS of people.. and angels.. and millions of children. Running.. playing.. having an awesome time. No cries.. all happy and all having an absolute BLAST. The kids.. I tell you.. the kingdom of heaven IS theirs.. there are SO MANY of them there.

But considering there are 30 million abortions each year.. its not really surprising. I looked around.. I saw ahead a "Blank" spot in the series of majestic spirals and parklands. A field.. a circle.. of pure gold.. like a field of burnished glass.. like a bright citrine colour. It was about 200 kilometres across from edge to edge. It was transparent.. because I could see the river flowing UNDER it...from right under the structure in the centre.. the building that was ALSO a throne....and looked to be about two kilometres high. We began to descend towards it.

Gradually getting closer and closer.. the field was empty.. not a thing stirred on it.. not a bird flew over it.. like.. it was "Reserved" for something.. untouchable until the moment its use was ready. The creator and I settle down and down.. drifting closer and closer to the throne...and this is the weird part...AS we drew closer to the throne.. WE either became bigger.. OR.. the throne became smaller...not sure which.. The throne was white.. pure white shot through with veins of gold-like fire.

Solid.. eternal.. and yet.. it was also a structure.. a dwelling. I never did get an explanation for that except to realise that it was also an "Admin" building.. like a courthouse.. seat of parliament.. something like that.

We settled down right in front of it. I reached out to touch it.. and then realised I had no body.. as such. But I DID feel a purity.. awesome power of utter authority.. like the place where ALL decisions are made and all cases ended.

This is where it got serious for me...There I "Stood".. at the base of the throne.. KNOWING I had been there before.. like a massive.. MASSIVE Deja Vu hit me all at once. I RECOGNISED this sea of fire.. of golden glass.. I KNEW this throne.. I KNEW this entire field.. but WHERE..WHEN??.....

My creator looked at me.. like he was waiting for the realisation to hit me fully...he was not smiling at this moment.. he was rather serious.. like he WANTED me to remember.. the moment...of WHEN I had been there before...and was just patiently waiting for the memory to take shape...

Having realised I HAD been there before I said

"Lord creator. (I didn't know how else to address him at that time). I know.. I know YOU..I KNOW you now.. I've seen you.. this place.. this throne.. this sea of fire/glass.. I HAVE been here.. with you.. but.. when?.. It does not seem like long ago.. and yet.. HOW?.."

He looked at me with a slight grin.. he kinda looked proud of me in a way and said "

"15 years ago earth time you sat with me on my lap, up there on that throne. You were an infant.. full of life and questions and curiosity. You were fresh from my mind.. created almost an instant before, brought into being on earth direct from my very spirit itself. You were born very premature. You did not want to stay at first so I brought you here to explain a few things and give you a choice. But first I sent you back telling you your time was not yet.. you had a destiny to fulfil and if you had stayed you would never see it take place. being an infant you did not understand, so back you came, rather stubbornly I might add. "

He continued.. despite my looks of.. confusion ???...

"So I explained patiently.. while bouncing you on my knee...the joy that awaited you.. and millions of others.. IF you went back and lived out your planned destiny. I told you that the reward for going back would be well worth it, and beyond imagination. You looked at me with baby blue eyes asking why.. eyes I fashioned to look similar to mine. I like blue.. its my favourite colour.. as it is yours" (Yes.. I love blue.. always have.. and there I found out why).

He went on to say...

"15 years ago earth time you didn't want any part in that destiny.. you kept trying to leave your body.. small and frail as it was.. you wanted to be here with me.. your "Daddy" as you called me from the depths of your innocent infant spirit. How I loved it.. to hear you call me that. I am your "daddy"... I am everyone's "Daddy" if only they would realise it.. and through your final decision to return and live your life... many millions WILL."

I asked him.. rather dumbfounded "So.. I died as an infant.. willingly.. died.. JUST so I could be here with you?"

He said "Yes.. twice you actually succeeded.. and you tried many other times as well.. before you managed to stop your own heart by an act of your will. The first time I sent you right back after a brief explanation. The second time.. I KNEW you would come back because I was the one who created IN you the curiosity and pure stubbornness to GET a full explanation of the facts. You have an inquiring mind.. one I created FOR the purpose of your destiny.. you will find it very useful in the days ahead.. but also.. it will also be a hindrance at times.. but that's why I gave you a mind like this.. to BE an "Overcomer".

An "overcomer" I said?...WHAT is that?

He smiled broadly and motioned his hand out over the sea stretching out before us to the "horizon"..."See this field.. this sea of glass??.. in a few decades you, and millions of others will be here.. and yes.. your sister and daughters as well (Daughters.. I will have DAUGHTERS??) will all be here.. jumping and leaping for joy.. as the climax of all creation is made known to all.

I asked him...

"So I've been here.. and chose to go back once you explained WHY I had to go back. "?He said "Yes.. I was very proud of you.. you are a fighter.. you never give up.. although you do tend to be discouraged easily.. but you also get up again and again.. you never quit.. THAT is why I am proud of you. You fall and fail.. yet you try and try again. Its not how many time you fail I take note of.. its how many times you get up again and keep going.

THAT is character.. and character is all important and vital for what comes after your life on earth is complete."

I looked at him and said "Huh"?..(rather stupidly I might add)

He just grinned and said "There is coming a time soon.. a few decades from now earth time...when all you have learnt.. and all you will learn will find its meaning. You think you will sit around being all happy here in this place doing nothing forever? NO.. you will have work to do.. places to oversee.. administration.. government.. all very busy.. and decisions will be needed.. from people with character.. people who have gone through the fires and beat them.. and.. people who are wise.. strong.. resilient.. steadfast.. in a word.. overcomers"

He went on to say "Now you know why you never knew me except as an infant. You know why...because in all the things you have gone through these last 15 years.. you grew character.. without the "Crutch" of fought on and on.. you overcame your weak frail body.. it grew strong.. you overcame the sicknesses that resulted from your premature birth... you overcame the anger and grief of your overcame the incessant teasing at school.. the bullying and the physical beatings.. just because you were "Different" saw through the lies on TV.. you never bought into the rubbish...the deceptions.. you kept on and on.. always asking.. looking.. reading and searching.. for deep down you KNEW there was more to this life than met the eye.. and deep down.. was the seed I had planted there when you and I had our little chat.. and now here you are today...and I am answering your question in full.. for know.. that all was not in vain.. life DOES have a purpose.. far greater than you can ever imagine."

I stood there.. taking it all in.. it suddenly all made sense...all the trouble I had been in.. the hurt.. the pain.. the despair.. the victories.. again and again.. a cycle of defeats.. followed by victories.. and followed again by defeats.. and followed again by victories.

I was always alone.. never a friend...but I kept going.. I KNEW.. even though I actually "Believed" in nothing.. that I was WRONG somehow in that "belief".. which.. after all.. was NOT a belief but an assumption.

He stood there...letting it all soak in.. it all fit together.. and explained a lot of what had happened in my childhood.. the early formative years of the basic character I would need in the next three decades.. as he was just about to warn me about... He said "Come with me.. up there.."

We both rose up to the throne.. and we sat on it together.. looking out over the sea of citrine yellow fire.. glowing in awesome majesty.. vacant.. for now...

(I was not actually "Sitting" as I was in spirit.. no body as such.. but you get the idea)

He pointed down to a spot near the front of the throne.. slightly to the right of it and said. "Know this for a less than 4 decades from now earth time.. YOU.. and your two daughters.. will be standing right there.. on that very spot.. you will be leaping and shouting victory.. joy.. gladness.. your arms around your young ones, who I will bless you with at the right time.. and there you will finally understand all that you are to go through in the next 35 years. Behind you.. surrounding you.. will be many many people.. who will only be there because of your words.. what you say.. and because of the moment you said them. No one will know you.. you will not be on a stage.. or on a movie or in a book. Just your words.. will spread out and impact many lives.

There.. standing there where I am pointing

(He raised his hand and pointed to the exact spot I will be standing in three decades or so from then)

I will acknowledge you to the others.. the ones who are there because you CHOSE to stay on and fight through.. I will let them all know your name.. and then you can spend the rest of the 1000 years meeting them all.. and sharing your testimony in person.. and hearing theirs. It will be an amazing time for you.. you will be utterly astounded at just who you reached with your words.. and their effects.

Nothing happens for nothing.

Your words.. born in the fires of agony and trials.. will touch many lives.. and also save many lives.. and the reason I tell you this now.."

( He suddenly got all serious.. His smile of joy at the future memory of this event faded.. and the present came rushing back in.. and with.. a tear? his eye.. and a sadness I could only see the edge of..)

He continued...

"In the years ahead.. you will try to find me.. here.. will look and will try churches.. drugs.. alcohol.. parties.. friends.. all looking for me...trying to find WHERE I can be found on earth. You will forget most of what I have told you today UNTIL the day BEFORE it all comes to pass.. and your true destiny begins.. which will be in your 44th year ...."

( THAT is tomorrow.. I turn 44..and YES.. its only NOW.. the DAY BEFORE.. that I remember EVERY WORD he said to me that day so long ago.. until TODAY...I could only remember bits.. and the place itself.. NOT the warnings or the details)

He continued...

" the years ahead.. you will long to die.. you will experience such deep despair.. such grief.. so much pain. The fires will forge you.. stronger and stronger you will become with each forging. There will be three times you will attempt to take your life.. which I will prevent.. three times you will survive.. and get up and keep going.. again.. each step.. closer to the final product."

"You will die to yourself.. you will die to this world.. you will eventually die out to the "Need" of human love.. finding it to be untrustworthy and fickle .You will know in the end.. only MY love is certain.. and only I can be counted upon.

And on that day.. you will walk as a lion.. fearless.. dead to the world.. trusting only in me.. and THAT.. is the reason I will let you wander.. to find out once and for all as Solomon once did.. that ALL.. apart FROM me.. is vanity.

And there.. lies real strength...and courage.. and wisdom...and with those three attributes forged INTO you by the fires of life itself.. you will march forth in your 44th year.. and devastate so many many half truths.. you will clear a pathway.. just with your words.. to truth.. to life.. and many will follow.. but NOT YOU...they will follow the TRUTH you have learnt so hard.

No one will EVER know who you are.. until that day.. the day I tell all, in front of the vast crowd.. your accomplishments. Both yours.. and many other warriors who will have done similar to you.

You will receive your reward then.. no sooner.

So.. go now.. back to earth...and I will be with you every step.. I will guide your every step.. and I will not let a single hair on your head be harmed.

There will be many attempts on your life by the evil one.. I will guard you.. see there?

( He pointed out across the field.. and there.. hovering above the field were two angels.. BIG ones..stern..strong..6 feet across at the shoulders.. at least 16 feet high...each dressed like a warrior.. with a ten foot long broadsword in a jewelled scabbard.. ready for anything)

These two have been with you since birth.. they are your protectors.. in the days of your destiny you will get to know them personally.. but until then they will remain hidden.. from you.. and from others.. but NOT from the forces of darkness...who will flee left and right at their very look.. thus no harm will ever come to you.. you must be kept alive at all costs.. even against your own attempts to end your life.. you cant even harm yourself.. much as you are going to want to.

(As it turns out.. I DID try to kill myself three times.. and each time.. it failed...overdose.. nothing.. just woke up a week later feeling great...drink myself to death?.. nup... I always passed out or vomited it all up..CAR accident?.. Head on crash at over 130 kph into a concrete pole which left the car a burning wreck?.. same.. was flung from the car as it burst into flame.. not a hair singed.. and not a scratch...that was my last attempt.. I gave up trying to kill myself after that.. no point.)

He then looked me right in the eye.. with his amazing eyes of multi hued blue fire and said..

"(My name) the years immediately following this conversation.. you will remember only parts of what I have said. Here and there I will allow a brief flash of remembrance. During dark times.. when you need it the most.

But for the most part your decisions.. and mistakes.. and outright rebellions, will be your own. But they too are a part of what you must learn. You will even get very angry at me in several years time.. when you fail to find me in any churches or doctrines or drugs or books or seminars. You will even curse the day you were born.. and your anger and grief will lead to some dreadful mistakes.. but those same mistakes will be the making of you.. your anger and your grief at not "Finding me" will in fact be what allows you to find me in the end.

A week before you turn 44 the final test will come.. your family will disown you and turn against you... and in that moment you will make a final decision (WHICH I did) which will enable the memory of all I have told you to re-surface one day before you turn 44..and when you do.. begin...for your 44th year is when everything you have ever learnt will come into play. The world will grow very dark.. people will be dying and losing hope.. BE that hope for them.. and tell them.. they DO have a "Daddy".. that I am here FOR them.. and that nothing in their lives has happened for nothing either.. as I hold all events.. and every life.. well and truly in the palms of my hand. Now go.. and I will see you again just under 4 decades your time, from now.

Then.. BANG... just like that.. I opened my eyes...and looked at the clock next to my bed...I was there for what seemed like hours.. or days.. but only about five minutes had passed.

And true to his word...I forgot almost everything he said...until today...



After I wrote it more came back to my memory of the event.

The last year for me has been hard. very very hard. I wont go into details but the events of my life just in the last 12 months leading up to today.. the last day of my 43rd year.. were the final stage. I am dead to this world now. And going by what I can remember now of that event 28 years ago...I can see why.

There is a vast and terrifying abyss just ahead. Many millions dying.. war.. death.. loss of hope. Our whole way of life.. our entire civilisation.. will soon be in ruin..

That is when lights shine the brightest.. when darkness falls.

The darkness falls very soon. Before the middle of next year... I cant see clearly WHAT it is.. I only know its devastating.. and permanent.. as in.. it ends western civilisation.. forever.

One other thing I know about what's coming..

THERE WILL BE NO WARNING...NO one will predict it.. NO prophet will warn of it.. NO one will KNOW.. until the final few seconds.

Its going to be FAST and SUDDEN and WORLD SHAKING..NO warning.. not even from the Lord.

The ONLY clue I have been given regarding the beginning of the end will happen on an ordinary day. A day just like any other. No change.. no "feeling" of impending doom...just a sudden and shocking CHANGE.. and nothing will ever be the same again.

Our epoch ends.. just.. like.. that.(Snap of fingers)

Then following this change.. this devastating world rocking event.. comes the harvest.

Then before the year 2020,,,the final end.

I was told I would see it.. the return. Its right at the end. I was also told I would not see the age of 50 in my current body.

I am 44 tomorrow. That is the year I was told my destiny and all these years of hardships.. stupid mistakes.. lessons learnt.. and character building would all find the uses.

We have.. I feel.. but a few weeks of "Normal" left.

When the change comes.. it will catch everyone totally off guard.

They are already off guard because of the December 21st campaign.. designed BY the media.. to achieve just that.

Now they have an entire world population not caring one bit about any predictions or prophecies or forebodings.

Everyone is asleep.. as planned.." and the flood came on a day they knew not.. and took them all away" in the days of Noah.. so shall it be again...and so it actually IS...NOW.
