HOW THIS WILL ALL TURN OUT = FUTURE HISTORY

Here's what I believe is about to happen. You may not like it, but it is how I see it right now. It's important to face the future with an attitude that soars above fear.

I believe that the Trump administration will fight hard to reverse the election because of rampant systemic voter fraud. The battle will try to have Trump serve 4 more years.

I believe it will fail. Not because they have no evidence, there is a ton of evidence, some circumstantial, some statistical and some tangible, it will fail.   The evidence is real, despite what the lying media will say. It will fail because there isn't time. There have been 16 days.  Light speed development of the evidence has been accomplished. 

The deceitful media, the entertainment industry will go full out to discredit this effort.  Watch for Saturday night live to pillory the press conference.  They will make big fun of Rudy Giuliani.  The democrats will insist  they have done nothing wrong in spite of the overwhelming burden of proof against them.  If you look for even 3 minutes at the combinations of the evidence of fraud you become disturbed at it.  It is obvious.

I believe Joe Biden will assume the Presidency January 20, 2021 under the darkest of clouds. He will be considered completely illegitimate by a large part of the citizenry.. It will be divisive. There will be anger. There may even be open rebellion.  The division it will cause is not Trump’s doing, it is the blatant democrat fraud and corruption that imposes a false result and a false presidency in the nation.  This will mean any potential he has for leading is wounded mortally.

This will actually turn out to be a good thing. Trump is sacrificed but the result of the wind of corruption will expose the deep corruption in media, big tech, big pharma, the deep state and the democrat party. It will be very painful and slow but it will become a battle cry against the evil present in many cities like Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee and Atlanta.  It is a lawless thug mentality meant to impose their will by any means possible.  It is a looting of the American system.  This exposure will stain in particular big Media.

I believe this battle must be fought on 3 fronts for victory.  One is in the courts.  Winning there might be easier than in the court of public opinion, at least at the beginning.  It also must be won by winning back the leadership ceded to corrupt evil people in the big cities mentioned above.  Some actually need to be prosecuted.  It will be more difficult in a Biden administration, but there are state courts and state justices.  Unfortunately many attorney’s general in these states are as corrupt.  Look at Illinois who’s attorney general is as dirty and corrupt as Kim Foxx is.

Trump will not leave quietly not with a concession speech. His term will simply end  with conclusion. He won the election in reality so there is noting to concede.  He will allow things to come to a conclusion when is nothing more to do by law. He will be a wrecking ball as he does this, wrecking what should be wrecked.  The leftwing press will vilify him, democrats will scream like demons, but there will be bells of liberty crying out for freedom from corruption that can never be unrung.  The war cry will go out. 

Many people in power will be exposed. I believe Barack Obama is a criminal and is at the heart of a great deal of the corruption.   He had plans to be the shadow president, which will now be called into question.  His fingerprints are on all of this, on the Covid handling by obedient democrat mayors and governors to damage trump, on the election fraud, on the Harris placement, on the election fraud itself.  He has been in cooperation with named evil forces on the earth to take over the USA.

The voting machine and mail in ballot scheme to steal this election will begin a drumbeat for better. MUCH better.  Much more secure. The idea that states and precincts can simply make it up as the go along must stop.  The Supreme Court will get involved as it should.  There will be exposure to the deep tentacles of big money and corruption to develop equipment designed to distort the voting process.  Too many coincidences exist to doubt this.  All the names you are hearing that morph into other names and locations like Smartmatic, Dominion and others will be discovered to be one Cyclops of evil with many tentacles.

Nothing is more sacred than the right and privilege to vote and have your vote count.  That has been destroyed in many places; destroyed by corruption and fraud.  The capacity to cast a legal vote and have it counted accurately can be done, best in person, by hand and in rare cases by mail with full documentation. 

I believe in two years we will see the fruit of this corruption and the American people will rise up against it to make the changes needed. This kneecap of the system by people with evil intent will have resulted in those very people put down.

History will treat President Trump very well, for his accomplishments, for energizing a conservative wave, for exposing intentionally and by his displacement unintentionally the deep corrupt media, state, democrats, tech and all the others.

In the end we will thank him, I will be first.  He will not disappear.  There is now the Trump party and a smaller Republican party.  Some Republicans hope we can go back to the facade of a two party system which is two wings on the same bird.  We won’t.  This must not stop.  There are others waiting in the wings to take back states from Democrats in Michigan, Wisconsin, California and Pennsylvania.   Up and down the ballot.  To take out those who do not stand for righteousness.  And when the time comes, a new person equal to Trump will rise and stand against the evil.  I don’t know who.  Not yet.  I see several potentials.  They are genuine.  Trump has demonstrated that the good old boy network is a loser.

All in all it will be a good thing; we needed a flush of the system.  Watch it swirl down the toilet.  This statement is how I see it.  We shall see.

I will tell you what I think may happen. (not prophet Gene)



 It will be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the election was stolen from Donald Trump. Ergo, as prophesied, Trump wins the election. It will go to court, but time will run out. The liberal media drumbeat will silence any voices of Justice as has already happened. Biden will be certified the winner by the states and the Electoral College.  He will take office under a dark cloud. There will be some dark things reveled within a few months of his inauguration.  It will cause him to leave office.  This means Harris becomes Potus.  Her hands will be tied and it will prove to be a huge embarrassment.  The old crowd will return.  Clinton, Rice, and OBAMA who will be a shadow President.   He will be in Harris' ear.  This will become obvious. The nation will deepen in it's divide.  It will be a fragile peace.  There will be outbreaks of terrorism.  Then the Mid Term elections will kneecap Harris and the shadow Obama administration. The election rules will then go thru a huge revision which will start to reverse the trend towards more Free and Fair elections.  In the end, Father will be true to his promise and work things.  But the division that is tormenting the nation cannot be resolved except by a spiritual transformation.  The antichrist spirit alive and well in the USA is at war with righteousness.  It hates you and me.  There is no compromise with this evil.  Now the soldiers of the Cross must stand and push back with truth and yet in love.  Some of those most against the cause of Christ as Saul was will become Apostles  of Grace after conversion.  So fight on.. but be aware and don't be disappointed.  

Of course I could be wrong. I am sometimes.

Present Truth is so Much More Powerful than Futurism

 I am not a fan of futurism.  All the things that are easily dispelled if a person simply reads the word of God with fresh eyes.

I will offer a list another time.

What prompts this is a Pastor I care about was preaching a powerful sermon on Esther.  I won't make the whole of the points.  It was good.

However as he closed he made this statement.  Just as the King wanted to show off his Queen to others, So Jesus wants to show off His Bride, and someday he will do just that.  He will return and the world will see how glorious His Bride is.

I agree with the concept, but it was so much weaker talking in terms of some potential future event.. which is in doubt in my theology.

How much more powerful would that closing have been if Pastor had used present truth:

Jesus is proud of His Bride and loves to show her to the fallen world.  He uses people who are seen as unusual by the world and the ungodly but they can't deny her beauty.  Look at people who end up in the public eye and although hated, the world must know they are something unusual, something peculiar, Holy, Special.  Recently Amy Coney Barret was scrutinized, criticized but she was a great example as the bride.  Nick Foles, Quarterback and Carson Wentz and Russel Wilson all of whom live exemplary lives Beautiful bride-like.  Look at men like Mike Pentz.   Even Kanye West.  None of these are professional preachers, they are simply people who have put on the robe of righteousness and are paraded in front of a fallen world as examples of the Bride of Christ.  The fallen world hates them, but there is admiration as well.

How much more does Jesus want to use us as a bride.  Put you before men.  Let the world see what beauty he imparts to you.  We can all recognize and strive to be worthy to be put on public display and in God's eyes without spot or wrinkle.  The world might look for a spot and it won't be hard to find sometimes, but the reality is.. we are the bride of Christ and WE are on display.

Let's do well.

Evil's Attempt to Rule the World is in Full Swing

I woke this morning and was disturbed in my spirit.  I had a sense that things are not right.  Things spinning out of control. That the wrong people are trying to place a hammerlock on our lives.  The new world order is in full play.

I’m not prone to gloom and doom.  I am prone to being optimistic.  Yet, something is wrong.  Evil is afoot.

There is a convergence that is taking place.  It has been for a while but in the last few weeks has begun to culminate in bad way.  Very bad.

Here’s why:
The pandemic has run a course that should be saying good things. But Europe is going back on lockdown.  Several states are still locked down.  There are states where freedom reigns, but too few.  Evil people  have used this to crush state economies and cities.  New York City and Chicago are chief among them.  They are for all practical purposes ghost towns.  Skeletal visions of what once was.

In many countries of the world there is a virtual police state revolving around the idea of stopping or slowing the pandemic.

These efforts are being driven by evil political types who want to rule by force.  They are using the whole covid pandemic as a lever to impose restrictions that serve the new world order.

Combine that with the no touch purchasing.  You can’t use cash many places anymore.  Cards are the only acceptable form of payment.  Therefore evil tracks what and where you buy and controls what you are allowed.  Your privacy is gone.. what little you had left.

Banks are not open in most places anymore.  

Businesses are closed by the thousands and will never open again.

People are dependent on government.. and government is creating even more forms of dependence.

Add this to the terrorism by radicals burning down cities and countryside.  To conduct riots outside people’s homes.  And to the random violence that entitled people feel they are allowed to engage since they are the right color.  Black Lives Murdering.

The evil in the world is leveraging off that rage by dividing out nation into two distinct camps.  If the evil succeeds it will attempt to subjugate many who have another opinion.

In addition to all this is the reality that our economy held up artificially is teetering.  The new world order masters have decided that it is worth destroying the nation, its people and our economy to accomplish the goal of total power.

I would like to tell  you I have seen this before.  Perhaps in Nazi Germany.  Maybe in the Ukraine under Stalin.  Maybe in Venezuela.  I only know this, an ignorant populace is being romanced by satan to encourage the domination of the overlords in the new world order.

Is this too Dark?   Look at the Family.  Look at the Church. They are under attack in ways we never have seen in our lifetime.  

Evil in on the march and those of us who should see this are silent.  I am not.  Out of this will either come war or revival.  Or both.  We must not lose what we had in January 2020.  We must look to a better day.  This passage is often used regarding the Day of the Lord.  Yet.. it applies to those who call he name of Jesus as Lord.

I think of the Passage in 1 Thessalonians 5 (Passion Translation)

5 Now, beloved brothers and sisters, concerning the question of God’s precise times and specific seasons, you don’t need me to write anything to you. 2 For you already know quite well that the day of the Lord will come unexpectedly and as a complete surprise. 3 For while some are saying, “Finally we have peace and security,” sudden destruction will arrive at their doorstep, like labor pains seizing a pregnant woman—and with no chance of escape!

4 But you, beloved brothers and sisters, are not living in the dark, allowing that day to creep up on you like a thief coming to steal. 5 For you are all children of the light and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night nor to darkness. 6 This is why we must not fall asleep, as the rest do, but keep wide awake and clearheaded. 7 For those who are asleep sleep the night away, and drunkards get drunk at night.

8 But since we belong to the day, we must stay alert and clearheaded by placing the breastplate of faith and love over our hearts and a helmet of the hope of salvation over our thoughts. 9 For God has not destined us to experience wrath but to possess salvation through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 10 He gave his life for us so that we may share in resurrection life in union with him—whether we’re awake or asleep. 11 Because of this, encourage the hearts of your fellow believers and support one another, just as you have already been doing.

I have not lost heart.  I am still fully preterist.  Yet there is instruction for us in this passage in how to deal with radical change.  We need to not look for escape as the evil one rains destruction on us.  Is it judgment?  I don’t think so. It’s not good and perfect.

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.


Evil is on the prowl.  If there is to be Judgment, it is evil that will be judged.  Lets believe for the exposure of every kind of evildoing.  The mask must come off the demonic in the world.  Let the DAY OF THE LORD as in Thessalonians be the judgment of evil.

It's always darkest before the Dawn... but it's still dark

The news on so many fronts are discouraging.  Depression, unemployment, maybe a couple hundred thosand dead from Covid-19.  Lots of discouragement.

Yet God isn't discouraged. He sees the end from the beginning.  Many people believe this will all end and we will magically snap back to how it was at the end of 2019.  Never going to happen.  Things have changed for good.. or not good.

It isn't about behavior, although that is the outcome. It's about making a new path when the old disappeared.  We are now in an undiscovered country. 

Many of the things we thought could not fail.. did.  I won't list them.

Plus there is an agenda of evil in the world.  It is the same evil that the Nazis used, the idea of Safety, Security and Protection. Of course the Nazis demanded that we give up much of what life in 2019 gave us to obey their demands.

Christians will need to resist, to keep in mind who we are and make certain that freedom isn't lost at the altar of Safety which is only Tyranny in a mask.

While I know that the darkness before the dawn is real, we can hope for a better day.. but that day won't dawn until the darkness of the present night is pushed back.  It is in your heart and mine where the darkness lives.  We can control that... by the help of the HOLY GHOST.

It's Kairos Time..an new day is coming.  You can help form it if you don't end up submitting to the evil anti-christ spirit on the earth today.

A GREAT Pruning is Happening - A look at the future

The grape vine doesn't enjoy being pruned.  In fact if it could speak it would say, "NO, leave me alone.  I'm quite happy being here  growing.  I offer us fruit, right?

No movie maker needing to get his film edited for best use uses all the hours of video for his presentation.  He in the old days would cut and paste together essences of the very best.   What was wasted was left on the cutting room floor, swept up and discarded.

This Virus invasion is not and act of God, but Father never wastes our difficulty.  He uses it to prune off the parts that needed pruning.

Here are some things that will be left on the ground of the vineyard and on the cutting room floor.  They really were superfluous and not fruitful   This great pruning has put them destined to the burn pile.

  1. Many entertainment venues are gone for good (theaters)
  2. Many sports will never return
  3. Many recreational parks and ships will die
  4. Many governmental bodies will find themselves destroyed
  5. Many gatherings will be very muted like fairs and festivals. 
  6. Domestic air travel will change forever.. and not for the better or cheaper
  7. Bankruptcies will roll thru the economy.  Many not because of the virus but because they were marginal in the first place.
  8. A transfer of wealth will occur as some additional over 70 pass away
  9. Major Cities will find themselves stagnating.  Financial difficulties will become even more severe.
  10. Many poorly run states will become even more stressed.  A huge battle will ensue.
  11. A falling and failing in the Church will occur.  A portion of Churches will prosper as the return begins, but many more will fail.  Denominational churches will prosper believe it or not.  Those who served their congregation in tangible ways will prosper.  The true shepherds will be revealed, those who were not will discover the pruning.
  12. Inflation will stay quiet for a while but then will become rampant as money flows thru the economy.  This will take 3 years.
  13. Agriculture will suffer for a while and then will become vibrant.  
  14. The social distancing and other things will become a hangover.  Those who need the human tough will find themselves wanting.
  15. There are hundreds of other changes you will see in the years to come.. your life will  never be the same. Knowing that you can look forward and leave your past behind.

Many things that we once expected will no longer exist.  It will be a different world. The good news is in some ways better, but in many, we will never go back again. We are now strangers in a strange land, an undiscovered country. 

You are leaving the Land of Ur.  Your stopping off place is the place of Haran.  Then you will leave there to the place of promise.  You will  never go back again.  That land no longer exists.

We are NOT all in this together

The meme on TV encouraging all to stay in is WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

That means I am in this with people who depend on government, depend on science alone, depend on authorities or depend on corrupt governors of states like Illinois.

That's not my boat. I'm in a different boat.

We can't all be in the same boat, but we are all in the same storm.

Some boats will stay afloat, some will sink, some will be driven  off course and some will remain adrift aimless.  Other boats knowing the destination and being driven by the right winds of the Holy Ghost will arrive safely.

Find your boat, trust the captain.

For me and my house, I will serve the Lord.

It's time to Erect an Ebenezer Stone

I keep hearing the President describe what is going on as a war.  Certainly there is a battle with an invisible enemy going on.

It's not a war... yet.

Sure some have died, and some have suffered.  But a War would be different.  My question prophetically is this.. are we as a people, as the body of Christ ready to go to war?  Right now governments have us locked down, locked in, hiding in fear.  That doesn't sound like warfare.  There is a time to attack.  That time is NOW.

The enemy is using fear of a disease to accomplish all kinds of things.
Stopping Gathering together
Plunging our economy into chaos
Pitting one against another
Stripping away human rights... when we need PERMISSION to do something we have already forfeited our rights.

I am saying it's time to confront this head on.  Carefully.  With all the weapons we have.  Courage, Faith, Confidence, Prayerfulness, Purity, and Clarity.

Right now we are being told what to do, where to be, who can buy and sell and controlled.  This is NOT God's will for you.  We must stand up to the enemy.  Fear NOT.

Some will die as we take back the land taken from us. It's time to erect an Ebenezer and say, this far and no further.  We cannot be bullied as Christians.  Some will go to jail.  Some will be prosecuted.

1 Samuel 7:11Then the men of Israel charged out of Mizpah and pursued the Philistines, striking them down all the way to an area below Beth-car. 12Afterward, Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.” 13So the Philistines were subdued, and they stopped invading the territory of Israel. And the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.…


 We are Sheep of HIS pasture, not of the beast in Government.  It is time for war.. now run to the battle... it might mean leaving your house.

Return to Joy

People are losing Joy during these hard days.  They think they have lost what they had... they were living in Peace and Safety. Peace and Safety.

The stock market, the job market, everything was going great. 

Then an invisible enemy attacked.  Loss, death, pain, pestilence and fear rose up.

The lifeline so many had was severed as Churches closed.  They were cut off from what held them together.

Some tried to substitute other distractions to try to find their joy again.  The future looks bleak and bleaker. Those distractions were temporary.

This has become a time when we discover the truth about who we thought we were.  Not as strong or resilient as we imagined ourselves to be.  We despair at our weakness in the flesh.


Thinks were pretty tough when the Law was read to the people of Jerusalem and they came face to face with who they really were.  They recognized their difficulty.  Nehemiah was placed by God to encourage the People at that time. Here's what he told them:

“Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!”  Nehemiah 8:10
Now as we find things changing yet again, we need to rediscover joy.  It's there.  It's in the little things. It's in charity. It's in intention. Treat every meal, every time you sit down as if it were communion.   When you bless your food.. say Body of Christ, Blood of Christ.  This is an ancient tradition in certain parts of the world.  It may be that what we think of as communion was in fact a full meal.

The Joy of the Lord is STILL your strength.  It will be hard.. but God hasn't abandoned you.  He hasn't forgotten you.  He isn't ignoring you.  He is allowing all this to happen while keeping you under his wing.

There is a nest in a small tree in my front yard. A dove sits on it.  She has eggs she is protecting.  A few days ago we had a snow and rain storm.  She didn't leave her clutch.  She sad on it with her wings stretched out to cover and keep them from harm.

How much more does your and my father do what he does in covering you.  Yes it is hard.. but you are under the shelter of his wings.

The Change Coming in Church

I am watching Christians turning from western Religion as this test goes on.  What used to be OK is no longer. 

The words of faith, the words of hope and the words of mercy and compassion are strangely absent.  Some are in the arena, but the traditional church is stumbling.  Many will not make it. 

This is a classic rubber meeting the road.. and traction is lacking.

What this means is trend towards a better ministry model and away from the preaching pulpit centric model.  It is important.. but only one of the FIVE essentials. Those who wear the title PASTOR must now fulfill the role of that grace.  What is it?

The answer can be found in the ministry of Jesus. The New Testament account reveals that Jesus did five things:

(1) Jesus built His relationship with His Father,
(2) He preached the gospel of the kingdom of God,
(3) He met the needs of people,
(4) He made disciples through the power of the Spirit,
(5) He gave His life as a sacrifice.

These are the keys to true biblical ministry.  A return to this model will be essential when "Church" resumes.  I do not see that happening for a while yet. 

If you are a church leader and you measure yourself.. how are you doing?  I'm guessing you already know.  Perhaps this was not your calling.  Many won't make it.  This is God's great washing machine cleaning up the Body of Christ.

Good that will come from the Pandemic by 2022

Right now there is a fair amount of Gloom and Doom.  Death and a destroyed economy in the near future.

We are going to see if you are a believer in Romans 8:28 as I am, we will see some positive outcomes to all this.  Let's flash forward to April 18, 2022.  The pandemic is now clearly in the rear view mirror.

Here are a few things I see and you can look forward to:

As a result of the all out war on the virus, we will find ourselves better able to fight, not only this one, but flues, colds and other viruses that come along. I see a vaccine, but better than that a method for shutting it all down. Tamaflu on steroids.  Treatments will trump the need for vaccines.

The world of business will have changed.  It will be painful. Many unsteady companies will  fail.  Some of those which were always vapor enterprises (built on nothing) will fade in the light of day.  Some that disappear will come back in a new way.  On  line is going to get stronger, and as a result entry by new small companies which could not get shelf space at Walmart will find the internet the working avenue as new entrants to compete against Amazon (there will be some) will grow and prosper.

The hangover of social distancing will change what we used to do.  Crowded theaters, concerts, churches, bars and some restaurants will need to meet the new.  Once a venue consistently sells at 75% it will flatten.  SPACE will be a premium. 

Airplane flights will become enjoyable again.  More space.  Better ventilation.  this change will be essential but tickets will be more expensive.

Inflation will return, aggressively.  Food is going to become more expensive and the above mentioned things like airlines and entertainment venues will of nessesity become more expensive.

Theme parks, fairs and festivals will be attended, but with intentional distancing.  Total attendance will be affected.

There will be outbreaks and scares.  As a result sports will suffer.  Stadiums will of  necessity need to become wider in spacing and distance.  The idea that we can all be crammed in on bleachers every 18" per person will end.  This won't have to be imposed, people will space themselves.

The hangover from bad health practices will take time to heal.  Many out of shape and compromised people will have died.  The lesson will be learned by some.. but not others.  Bad health habits are difficult to break.

Trump will still be President.  I don't see a majority of the house or senate to hold him up.  Despite the foolish behavior of the left they will take back the senate keep the house.

Healthcare in general will be superior to what it was pre-Pandemic.  It will also be more expensive.

Bureaucratic and useless governance will fall away.  They already are, but more will come.  The foolish overreach of mayors and governors in many states will result in changes.  When the evil are charge the people groan.

Some flyover states will  now be even more attractive to business as the leaders of those states have excelled in good governance.   Red states rising.

Families will be stronger.  Education will have to go thru a change.  College attendance for Fall of 2020 and Spring 2021 will take a hard hit.  Vouchers will not become more  and more acceptable.  The clay feet of the education cabal will have been illustrated.  The fact that millions of teachers laid off but paid and yet did nothing... will cost them.

There will still be a radical liberal fringe but they will fewer.

New outbreaks of vigilante groups on the left and right will break out. They will  cause divisions even deeper in the body politic.  We must not lose this war.  It is more viral than any pandemic.

Church as we knew is changed forever.  Any pastor or leader who makes the false assumption that he or she can simply take the platform and begin  preaching like it was March 1 will find a disappearing following.  Each and every member needs to be touched directly  by phone or in person to firm up the relationship.  Most churches are really really bad at this.  Better at preaching and not great as being a pastor.  Business as usual will fail.

Internationally, China is a wounded badly, as is Russia.  Japan and South Korea are fine.  Europe is sick.  I don't see an EU in 2023.  Many of the countries have shown just how weak and insipid the EU really is.  Italy, Spain and France will think  hard about following England in a Brexit.  Germany is now the only country trying hold this together.  They want to OWN europe.. but can't.  They dropped the ball.

The global economy will got thru a very hard time.  Depression.  Then inflation.

Socialism will be shown for what it is.  Great until you run out of other peoples money.

Africa and Most of South America (other than Brazil) will stagger.  India  is going to suffer HUGE death loss from the virus.  And then herd immunity will occur and it will come out stronger than before.

I won't say thus saith the Lord.. but I see many of  these trends clearly.. and more.

The world will be a better place..but only after a great hurt. May we be strong enough to see that day.

Was 40,000 always the number?

As the decline in death counts accelerates and the exponent becomes smaller and smaller, the argument to continue our national nightmare in lock down is less and less tangible.

There will be many people pointing to Prayer, Social Distancing, Stay Home Orders, Drugs, Medical Care, Herd Immunity, Masks and Hand Sanitizers as reasons why this is working.

I won't argue that some of this is true.. yet perhaps the virility of the virus is overstated.  Surely those who were compromised already have been lost the most. They may not have made it into 2021 in any case.

Was it worth destroying the American Economic System for this?  Was it worth going into national debt at an insane rate in this?   40,000 is not insignificant.. but it could have been manageable without.

Here's what my best educated guess is.. you can take it or leave it.

 

Year of Jubilee? Not for Everyone

Most people reading this are well aware of the Jewish practice of forgiveness of debt and restructuring that occurred in the nation of Israel every 50 years.

This took place because it helped re-balance the economic systems.  Lands restored. Debts forgiven.

Some are wondering if right now we aren't in such a time.  That the economic upheaval taking place will cause a de-facto year of Jubilee.

I know this, there are a lot of bankruptcies that will take place in the next 12 months.  Many will ripple thru the economy.  It will have a domino affect.

It  did in Israel.  Who in their right mind the year before the Jubilee year would lend money to anyone?  Or buy land that would be taken from them.

I know  may people think this will be wonderful.. but Jubilee for one is economic disaster for another.  Someone is stuck holding a bag of debt now useless.

This long run is a disruption that can't survive.

The Price of Terror

We just came out of an unusual Easter Celebration.

Jesus was murdered by the rulers of his age because they feared the Roman's. 

The Apostle John reports this conversation:
John 11:49
But one of them, named Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all! 50You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.” 51Caiaphas did not say this on his own. Instead, as high priest that year, he was prophesying that Jesus would die for the nation,…

Who put that idea in Caiaphas's head.  That they would railroad Jesus.  We know that it was always going to be so in the rear view mirror.  It was prophsied.

YET...

Fear drives people to desperate measures.

Fear drove the Nazis to murder 6 million because Hitler by his demonic anointing was able to pursuade a nation that Jews weren't  human, that they were responsible for all sorts of evil things and deserved to die.

Fear has caused death and distruction globally for millenia.  Lies from  the pit of hell creates terror.

Now we have another terror.. disease... Pestilence.  It's real... People are dying... yet.. fewer than was thought.  The fear is real.. let us be wary of not allowing it to control us into doing something really stupid.

Like the ENEMY did when he persuaded Caiaphas to kill Jesus... and Jesus defeated the enemy of death 3 days later when he rose from the tomb.  Let us be aware that the enemy shoots himself in the foot every time.  Let GOD arise and His enemies..  SCATTER

I'd rather have dangerous liberty than safe slavery

No one should be foolish. No one needs to be reckless.  We do however have a choice.  We can be slaves to:
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Resentment
  • Terror
  • Denial
  • Timidity
  • Conspiracies
  • Victim-hood
The devil is in the bondage business and if he can get you to submit to his plans.. he will.

On the other hand Liberty is dangerous.
We can walk into a burning building, we are free to do so.  Sometimes that means we should.  Sometimes we must.  Firemen do.

There is a caution that is needed, but walking in liberty must be dangerous only for you.  If you cause danger for others because of your liberty that is not liberty.. that is foolishness.

I will get in trouble here, but if you are carrying a virus for which as present there is no cure and you gather for any reason, family, religious or social you are endangering others.  Your liberty might kill grandma, yours or someone else's.

It is important to be very wise in these times.  "Your Liberty To Swing Your Fist Ends Just Where My Nose Begins". Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Fear has Cost us all ... It didn't have to be that way

It is clear now from the exponential rise and fall of total loss of life due to coronavirus will be about 50,000 souls more or less by the time things start falling fast.  The total loss by August will  be less than 70,000.

This is about the loss of life from an ordinary flu season.  The old,  in-firmed and compromised are dying first.  Every soul is precious, but every soul has an end they must face.  Some who faced death and succumbed in this time were on the edge when they may or may not have become attacked by the Virus.

What has made this so much more difficult is how unknown this is.  How there is no "Cure" nor Vaccine for it.  Of course there are some efficacious treatments that are working in other parts of the world like France.  They are not yet widespread here.

The political forces arrayed against life are willing to sacrifice people in exchange for posturing.  Of course these same voices will argue that when measures are made to attempt to return society to some form of restoration, they will cry dollars over deaths.  These same are quite happy to promote abortions because having a child is "Inconvenient". 

So be careful who you listen to.  Who is speaking lies and truth.  The truth is Life is for the Living.  At some point we must bury the dead and move forward.  I think the instruction is understood for being careful as we move on.  Let us measure the cost of freedom and life versus virtual martial law and self confinement. 

50,000 by mid May, 70,000 by August.  Too much... you decide.  We decide.

When we DON'T listen we perish

I have been walking out the reality of what is happening all around us.   Near Chicago where the virus is taking a toll. 

Yet there are huge islands of safety.  Distance.  Open air.

Chicago is governed badly.  So is the state of Illinois.  It is governed by people with agendas who fail to listen to anything other than the confirmation bias they insist upon.  If you are in their circles and come with a contrary opinion you are shut out and ignored.

This is how it is with many people.  The word says, Without a Vision, (a prophetic word from God), People Perish.  Proverbs 28:19

Many these days are pointing to prophetic utterances from the long past by David Wilkerson.  Or more recent Prophecies from Chuck Pierce.   They have standing and are important.  But what is MORE important is moving ahead as you hear from God in the moment, in the time. 

There is wisdom available by the Spirit of God that can help you right now.  Look for that.  I know and respect many prophetic voices, most of them are not nationally known.  Yet they speak the very truth of God for this moment.  They are hidden, but true.  Why?  Because they have nothing to gain or lose by sharing what God is saying.  Thy have no paywall, no entrance fee for attending thier conference, no collection plate.  They simply hear and say what God is saying.

Here is what the Lord is saying right now.. 
There are many voices competing for your attention in this time.  Heed words of hope.  Heed words of peace.  Heed words of encouragement.  The enemy of your soul wants to destroy hope and peace.  When you hear those words it will grate against the my Spirit inside you.  It will be dissonant.  Do not rail against them, some of those are in authority over you.  You must be wise at this time.  I need  you to breath, I need you to live.  I do in the earth what I do by your hand and voice.  So be wise. 

Yes, what I say to you seems to be doubt what you are being told.  This too is wisdom for the father of all lies is about.  You are being lied to every day.  You have the gift of discernment.  Hear and test if it is of terror or triumph. 

These days will come to an end.  Make certain you are there to meet it.  Do not fear. Be brave.  Be wise.   For victory is on the horizon.  Your salvation isn't in government nor in experts.  It is in ME.  I haven't left nor forsaken you.  This day in history represents the apparent death of hope.  What the destroyer didn't know when he thought he murdered hope  was that I am the word of Restoration.  I am resurrection. Live in me.  I need you to live, I need you to breath.

Strength

We must remember where our strength comes from.  Don't lose heart


If we understood this..we would be ready to face difficult things.

Let's remember

Under a Full "Pink" Moon

We are going into this week of remembering and celebrating the ultimate victory over death by Jesus and in turn, all of us under a super-moon. Called a pink moon, because it coincides with the flowering of spring.  Happens every year. Not the super-moon, but pink.

Many think this is a harbinger, that it means something. No, doesn't.  What does mean something is our victory over sin and death was culminated in a season like this a couple thousands of years ago.

That should be celebrated.

Not that we ignore the time and season we are in.  We don't.  Yet we take note for the future.  There will be a future. It will look different from the future we just left.  It might be better.  The normal is gone.. the new normal yet to be created.  We by our actions create this.



So let us not be caught up in or subjected to those things that are myths and old wives tales.  They do not count.  What counts is Jesus and his triumph over the ultimate enemy. 

The moon is beautiful.  There will be a Passover, as there is every year.  It happens with great expectation.  That eager anticipation is important.  I only want us to be sober and clear headed in this season.

This is not a time to become victims when the price was already paid for your victory.  Now go enjoy it.  The world will change but you can be certain in the immutable  God in Heaven who never ever changes.

Attributed to Terry Gene Bollea AKA Hulk Hogan

"In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship.

God said, 

"You want to worship athletes, I will shut down the stadiums.

You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers.

You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters.

You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market.

You don't want to go to church and worship Me, I will make it where you can't go to church"

"If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Maybe we don't need a vaccine, Maybe we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and have a personal revival where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters.

Jesus

Holy Week is when Demons Manifest in Athiests. Here is how to deal with them.

You will hear all kinds of "News" programs from the godless media claiming Jesus is a Myth and he never rose from the dead. Happens every Holy Week. This video is really good. The fool says in their heart, there is no God. The believer knows better. It's not just a matter of Faith. it is the ONLY rational a non fool can come to. But they don't. They are blinded. Share this..the world needs Jesus.

A new order is being formed, who's hand will do the shaping?

No sober person believes 5 years from now will look anything like it did at the end of 2019.  Things are going to change. A lot.  Some for the better, some for the worse.

The people making the future are on the planet right now.  They are making choices, moral and economic.  What those choices end up being will create the world your grandchildren will occupy.

We think the political folks in government make those choices.  No they reflect the choices we are making when we are with others, when we are in business, when we vote, when we buy what we buy, when we deal with our loved ones.

These choices are the fabric of the life we will lead.  In the movie and in the book "The Shack" the personage of the Holy Spirit in allegory takes the protagonist to an apparently disheveled and weedy garden space. It looks like a mess.  Then he is shown what it looks like from above, from God's eye.
It is remarkable, orderly, beautiful and most important shows how all the choices made by him were what created this. Nothing by accident.



This vision gave him hope for the future.  How he (The Protagonist) is the creator of it as the victim or victor in life.  This same thing is true of us all that occupy planet earth today


We must start to intentionally make better choices.  Much better choices.  The voice of the enemy who comes to steal, kill and destroy is everywhere.  It is in our media, it is among those who propose Godless legislation, it is in our political environs, it is in our entertainment, in our education establishments, in some for profit business and even in the alleged houses of God.  Even with a robe and a ring, the misleaders are everywhere.

God is using this time to expose much.  We are learning how unessential some of these things are. 

So be brave, be strong for the Lord Your GOD is Mighty.  These strongholds of evil must be silenced.  We must not just pray but speak out loudly.

Choose this day.. it is what will make your future and the world's

When we Pray, we move the Hand of God in our Favor


We have a choice.  To live in faith or fear. To live in despair or hope.  There is an enemy of our soul, he preaches poverty, lack, death, disease and terror.

God is not in the business of terror.  He is giving us a hope and a future.  The present adversity will pass and we will emerge in more victory.  The enemy wants us to believe for the WORST.  God is willing BEST.

You choose.  As for me and mine,  I choose LIFE and life abundantly.


I encourage as many as can to post this, re-post this and recommend it.  We need hope in these days.  This may offer a lifeline.    IF I were on FB I would, but I have been banned....for HOPE

Palm Sunday is about HOPE.

What the Future Holds

There are some things that will remain ... after.

Family, Faith

Some will dissipate - fear will be overcome

There are going to be disturbing times ahead. The good old days ended on Valentines Day 2020.

These are now the today's we face.

Jesus on a mount gave instructions in the face of pain, poverty, persecution and uncertain times.  It's good to remind ourselves of this.

Read all of Matthew 5-7 again. Imagine that Jesus is here now saying these things to believers facing what we see all around us today. 

I particularly like the Freshness of the Message Translation.  It takes us out of the learned religious and puts it in words of NOW.

The Father Heart of God in this Crisis

Me: Okay, God, here's the thing. I'm scared. I'm trying not to be, but I am.

God: I know. Want to talk about it?

Me: Do we need to? I mean, you already know.

God: Let's talk about it anyway... We've done this before.

Me: I know, I just feel like I should be bigger or stronger of something by now.

God: *waiting patiently, unhurried, undistracted, never annoyed.

Me: Okay. So, I'm afraid I'll do everything I can to protect my family and it won't be enough. I'm afraid of someone I love dying. I'm afraid the world won't go back to what it was before. I'm afraid my life is always going to feel a little bit unsettled.

God: Anything else?

Me: EVERYTHING ELSE.

God: Remember how your son woke up the other night and came running down the hall to your bedroom?

Me: Yes.

God: You were still awake, so when you heard him running, you started calling out to him before he even got to you... remember? Do you remember what you called out to him?

Me: I said, "You're okay! You're okay! You're okay! I'm here."

God: Why did you call to him? Why didn't you just wait for him to get to your room?

Me: Because I wanted him to know that I was awake, and I heard him, and he didn't have to be afraid until he reached the end of the dark hallway.

God: Exactly. I hear you, my child. I hear your thoughts racing like feet down the dark hallway. There's an other side to all of this. I'm there already. I've seen the end of it. And I want you to know right here as you walk through it all, you're okay. I haven't gone to sleep, and I won't.

Me: *crying. Can we sit together awhile? Can we just sit here a minute before I go back to facing it all?

God: There's nothing I'd love more.

What the Coming Pandemic will cost in American Lives

By the 20th of April the death toll in the USA will be about 130,000.   It will begin to decline in intensity from there to end up a bit under 200,000 by the first of August.

This assumes that we do not discover a breakthrough treatment.  However once this has roared thru the susceptible population it will not return in the fall except in a few scattered events.

The damage to the economy will actually be worse than the damage to our population.  All pandemics stop when the susceptible host is gone.

We are going to survive this.  We will see a sunny day.  God is still on the throne.

Do not fear, but be aware that these things will come to pass.

I will be posting the numbers as the exponential increase in death goes on.  You can track it here:

The coronavirus is second

 The media is claiming that our primary enemy is unseen and is the Coronavirus. That would be easy to say except that's not our enemy. Our Real Enemy is fear hopelessness and despair which is equally as invisible but equally as damaging. Here's the truth, many people are going to suffer, some will die in this, but this will pass in time and we will see ourselves a different nation in time. We will see ourselves a different world in time.  It will be a better world and a better nation in time.  The only common denominator is time. Let's take advantage of the time.  Let us not waste the time.  Redeem the time because these days are indeed evil but they also are Redemptive.  We are in that season, the fullness of time, Kairos time

He knows you and he fears you

The enemy always knows when things are about to turn.  He is not attacking all forms of Christian activity.  Some is over the top in your face. I love Rodney Howard-Browne, but sometimes restraint is your friend.  He didn't show much.

His arrest and position while admirable and understandable,  is not the way.  We must be in submission to authorities as the word talks about. If this had been in ancient Jerusalem and this happened, they would already be dead.

This is a time for the church to walk thru the open door that the Lord has opened.  People need God and in this time of fear, we know the one they need.  Show them.  But.. do so with the anointing that it requires.

There are frontal attacks on the name of Christ and his causes.  Recently the Greensboro NC police arrested 7 people outside an abortion mill.  They were spaced 6' apart. Not loud.  Just Praying.
This crisis is causing all kinds of aberrant behavior as the devil and his demons go into full attack mode.  We must be prepared and we must let the world know.

Read all about this here.

Remember that when the devil comes in, the Lord like a FLOOD raises up a standard against him.  Be the flood.

Will we know?

People are saying, "when this ends and goes back to normal".

I can tell you it will NEVER go back to how it was in January.  We have made a change in our lives as a world, as a nation and in your city whereever you are.  In families.  In all sorts of ways.

We will not know when it ends.  Or that it won't start again.  The new normal won't look much like the old. 

It will be a different world.  Very different..

The only thing that stays the Same is the Immutable nature of God.. everything else mutates.

Where do we Dwell?

When I talk to people in this time I can quickly discern where they dwell.

This is not a critisizm. It is more an observation that those who are prophetic will discern quickly.

News people don't Dwell for the most part.

Government doesn't Dwell.

Many Political Leaders in High Places lack Dwell.

Hoarders with Cartloads of Toilet Paper aren't Dwellers. 

Even many so called Believers are not able to Dwell.

WHERE?


1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
            Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
      2I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
            My God, in whom I trust!”
      3For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
            And from the deadly pestilence.
      4He will cover you with His pinions,
            And under His wings you may seek refuge;
            His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
      5You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
            Or of the arrow that flies by day;
      6Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
            Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
      7A thousand may fall at your side
            And ten thousand at your right hand,
            But it shall not approach you.
      8You will only look on with your eyes
            And see the recompense of the wicked.
      9For you have made the LORD, my refuge,
            Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
      10No evil will befall you,
            Nor will any plague come near your tent.
      11For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
            To guard you in all your ways.
      12They will bear you up in their hands,
            That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
      13You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
            The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
      14“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
            I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
      15“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
            I will be with him in trouble;
            I will rescue him and honor him.
      16“With a long life I will satisfy him
            And let him see My salvation.”

Psalm 91
