On Freedom

"He whom the Son sets free is free indeed". I caught the latest program of "Democracy Now" on public access tv. The gal there, Amy was discussing her trip over the weekend to Vancouver BC where she was address a meeting of like minded folks I assume. What disturbed me was the way they were treated by the Canadian Border Patrol. I guess the Canucks are freaking out about terrorists, so they end up treating everyone like one. Can you believe the Canadian gov spent ONE BILLION dollars on security alone for the olympics?
Me, I could care less who can run or jump the fastest or furthest. The olympic endorsers charge through the nose for anything that you eat or drink there. I quit attending ball games for the same reason. My wife and I saw 2012 recently. It cost us almost $20 for popcorn and drink. Now that is some high powered price gouging. For those kind of prices, I am surprized that folks still go. I probably will never attend another movie theatre, on purpose. If I wait long enough, it will show up on free tv.
The LORD says "be careful for nothing, but in all thy ways, acknowledge God and He will direct thy steps".
Philippians 4:6
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

I am supposed to be the head and not the tail. That head part must be in a different realm, because it doesn't appear that way from what I see. When I pray for the sick, I expect them to be healed. How should I handle it when the person walks away limping the same way he came in? Do I quit praying for people? Is my faith nothing but presumption? I mean, its not my position to "heal" them. Its God's job. I prayed, using the name of Jesus, so I expect God Himself to honor His own word. I leave the results in His care.
I realize I am jumping all over the place here. I am trying to "guard my thoughts" because of the Thought Police.
There are scientists actually trying to figure out how to electronically read your thoughts. Now why would they want to do that? Could it be to control me, or manipulate my thoughts for their own gain? Obviously!
I pray the God of Abraham, and Jesus shows up with a little more power than I have noted of late. I don't want the Catholic Jesus. He don't heal nobody. They go into a Mass sick. Priest prays. They leave sick. In truth, in 30 years of attending the Catholic Church, I never once heard the "true Gospel preached". Oh they gave a tiny piece of one of the Gospels, but couldn't quite figure out what the Whole Gospel is.
Go figure! I stayed there until Jesus actually freed me from the spirit of religion.
Go ask a practicing Catholic what is the "Gospel" and you'll understand what I mean.
If you happen to be a practicing Catholic, as God to reveal Jesus Christ to you and save your soul. He will, because He already has. You couldn't even believe in Jesus Christ if your name wasn't already written in the Lamb's Book of Life, written from before the foundation of the earth. That makes you really old!
Noooo, I want the Jesus Who actually heals people, sets captives free, and has enough power to turn the world upside down at the mere mention of His Name. Angels have to "hop to" when one prays the Word of God, in Jesus' name.

Ps 103:20
20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Thats why I pray using His words, not me own.

I don't want any other Jesus, then the One Who died on the cross for My sins, and Rose Again from the dead, who sits at the right hand of the Father, forever making intercession for the saints of God. He sent His Holy Spirit to bring the kingdom of heaven to earth.
We need this Jesus now. My Jesus loves Jew and Gentile, He's color blind, and is concerned about heart conditions. Thats why I try to diligently guard my heart and therefore my tongue. "its not what goes in the body that defiles a man, but what comes out of his mouth". Mix this with "blessing and cursing are in the power of the tongue".
Proverbs 18:21
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."

Happier Thanksgiving

Today is a day set aside by the Congress as a day to give thanks to God for the
freedom and blessings that we all enjoy. I thank God for all of His blessings,
even the ones I am not aware of, or have forgotten. He is such a Wonderful
Father to us, that we should call "Happy Father's Day". I am grateful that He
chose you and me to reveal His love and grace to. How blessed can you be?
I am grateful for hot water, a bed, covers, soap, a roof over my head, family,
friends, but more than anything, I am grateful for the Gift of Life He has
provided through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, who made a way for us
to come into His Presence. Praise and Glory, and Honor and Power and Wisdom
be to our God, forever and ever.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to All you blog readers. Thank you for praying for us, as it really makes a difference. We are all connected whether we realize it or not. "As ye have done to the least of My brethren, so do ye unto me."
Today was a struggle. Got paid with SS for the month. Wife paid the bills and told me the remnant. Uh oh... Okay God we need you.
I owed a debt of $140. Didn't have the bucks, you know. Called my creditor and announced my lack of ability to repay in this day. Was informed, it wasn't a debt, that the money wasn't a loan, but a genuine gift. You coulda blew me over with a feather. I was really grateful and told this person so. I also pray that God grants them a 100 fold return quickly.
Wife and I were going to store. Met a stranger, big guy, about 6'4". He had new haircut, clean clothes, and looked prosperous. He was a 'Nam Vet, as I am. We talked a bit, and the Lord came up. He was a Believer in Christ, as I am. I learned he was also a homeless guy. He had lost a very nice job over a year ago. His home was repossesed by your friendly local bankers, and he was out on the streets. He told me he was eating out of the food bank, and found a mission place to clean up. I checked the contents of my wallet and shared what I had. I then prayed for him. His face brightened a bit. It was an act that we all need to be doing. I sure couldn't tell he was homeless and destitute by his appearance. they can sure be decieving eh?
I always ask God to remember my needs when I give away His money, which He gave to me in the first place.
His plight reminded me how truly blessed I am, no matter what the outer circumstances appear to be.
Also recieved an email from one of my wife's childhood friends. She and her hubby are going through their own storm. Husband can't work and won't start receiving anything from SS until 4-6 months (Been there, done that also).T hey had hocked or sold everything they could spare to keep their mortgage current. She was stressed out and worked up what sounds like an ulcer. She asked for prayer, and advised us that it was the first time in her life that she had done so. I was surprised, but also humbled by the need.
I prayed for her, by email, with wife in agreement.
A little while later, my wife recieved a phone call from this sister. She sounded very cheerful, and heard wife laughing with her. My prayer was simple. Trust God in the midst of your storm. What else is there when you are at the end of your rope?
I have learned to tie a big knot at the end of my rope and hold on to Jesus.
God is good to me. can you imagine? Got a $140 debt cancelled, and fed a homeless guy and got to pray for a desperate situation, which I believe God will turn around for them, Just because we "had a little talk with Jesus".
Bless you

Fat Chance!

I recieved a comment on my last blog wondering what was up with "fat chance". I just want to comment that I didn't think I would be attending based upon my finances.
For me, it is one indication of the leading of the Spirit. I figure it this way, "If its God's will, then its also God's bill." Where God leads, He also supplies, or makes provision. With this understanding, I have been sent by Him to the Ukraines, Mexico, Boston, Philadelphia, DC, California several times, Nebraska, plus this conference. I am convinced that "My God shall supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus".
None of us believed on the Lord Jesus Christ on our own. God snuck up on us and gave us this mysterious substance called "faith". He drew each of us to Christ, and those who accepted His offer (free gift) of redemption through the atonement, are ushered on into His kingdom. I remind God, when I am struggling, that this problem is His. I didn't give my "self" faith to believe, it was from Him. I figure God is big enough, Fatherly enough, and gracious enough to handle anything that comes His way.
When I really struggle, I call upon Him as Comforter, and ask Him to come and put His big arms around me. Even though I is gittin mighty old, I am still a big baby. He is still my Momma Hen, and I be His baby chick. Lets face it folks, this is the Maker of heaven and earth we are talking about. He is smarter than you and I will ever be. He is both outside and within time, and knows the end from the beginning. He knew how much each one of us would screw up our lives before He ever gave it to us. That tells me He forgave my sins even before they were committed. Selah!
How is it that our lives were "hidden in Christ Jesus before the foundation of the world"? (Eph 1:4-11).
This God that I serve is soooo Amazing. His name is Wonderful (Isaiah 9:6). That word Wonderful means literally "difficult to understand". That is God. He is NO Thing, and yet He is Everything. Go figure....
Anyway, thank you to Anonymous for bring "fat chance" up. It really caused me to reflect on what I was thinking. Fat chance means I didn't have to exercise faith to recieve His leading. He showed His will in what He did. You are loved~

Its In the Sowing....

What a difference a day can make. Scripture says, whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. Went to church on Sunday, and wife and I agreed to give our last $8 to the LORD via the offering. I never write a check so we almost always give cash.

Now I had received a brochure for a conference that I thought I would like to attend, but they wanted $50+ to go. If my wife went it would be $70 or so, but at the door it would be more. I recall saying to the LORD, "Well, If you want me to go, then You'll have to pay my way." Thinking "fat chance".

I have an old friend, and brother in the LORD that I lost contact with several years ago. We both happened to have changed our home phone numbers about the same time. His Mother had passed on and he had moved to her home out of his apartment.

Turns out he had been trying to locate me for a couple years, and managed to run across my brother's phone number, whom he called, who gave him my home phone number.
Well, he called me and told me that he was coming up, to go to a conference and wondered if I would like to go with him, and he would cover the expenses. I learned it was the same conference I had talked to the LORD about 2 months earlier. I agreed.
He picked me up and off we went. Upon registration he decided to pay my wife's way as well as mine. Praise The LORD! It cost him about $100 for just us. Then he decided we should eat out and paid for dinner. Hurrah, its been a few months since we actually ate out. Then, before he left for home, he handed me a $100 bill. Wow?
I asked God to bless him with a 100 fold return, and quickly.

Well, our furnace went out at the same time. In addition, my brother called me up to have breakfast with him, and told me his wife was feeling poorly. I decided to go over later and pray for her. I prayed up a storm with my brother in agreement. Once I finished praying, we chatted a bit, and I mentioned that the furnace had died, it is about 40 years old. The LORD put it on their heart to offer to pay for the repair of the furncae. Then, Sunne quietly left the room while my brothe and I chatted. She returned and handed me two bills. I thought they were $20 bills, but I
was wrong, they were $100s. YOu can imagine my surprize. I almost wept. No, I actually did weep. I can be a big baby sometimes. I was and am, very grateful for the goodness of God.

This is Wednesday. Since Sunday morning, without me asking anybody for anything, except making my prayers known unto God. Since then, God has bought us two great meals in a restaurant, gave us $300 cash, gave us an energy efficient heater, and put it on someone's heart to pay to fix our furnace. Goes to show you can't outgive
God. We have decided to see what happens when we sow out of what has been freely given.

An $8 offering has reaped an amazing reward. The principles of the Kingdom of God are the oppositie of the world's system. We didn't labor for what we received. It was all a gift from God. To know HIm is to Love HIM!

Being led

A minister I have known for years is in town hosting a "Healing Explosion". They charged for admission for the conference, which is pretty standard practice for many ministries. I didn't have funds to go, living on SS.
I told the LORD that if He wanted me to go, He would have to pay for it. He sent an old friend of mine, Ron, whom I had been out of contact with for a couple years. He called me the day before the Conference and asked me if I would like to go. I said sure. I was really happy just to see him, as we had been close friends for many years, and then, lost connection. I got a new phone and he had his changed about the same time.
The furnace just went belly up at home. Will need $1000 to fix. Wonder how its going to happen, since that is nearly all I bring in each month? This a really great time for God to show up and flex His awesome power. His word declares, "I will even make a road in the wilderness and streams in the desert". I am there LORD! HELP!
Strangest thing at this meeting, my left leg lost all surface sensation. Never experienced anything like that. It prompted me to leave a bit early. Still, God is in
charge of my life.
My God shall supply all of my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!

The Information Age

The comet Hale-Bopp was a prophetic sign, as was the star that the Three Wise Men noted and followed. It signified that this was a warning to the world to prepare for the second coming of Christ. It signifies that that which was Hale (healthy), is about to be Bopped.

I think I've only had one visitor who remained anonymous. He or she, was a Beleiver and said I should just go to my secret place in Christ, and it would all be good. I believe that and I do. He alone is my Comforter. I even sleep with my Bible. How weird is that? At least I am holding onto the "Word of God".

"The times they are achanging" is part of the lyrics to an old song. They really are.
Just learned the gov has planted 350,000 government agents all over our land. Our special friends Home land s ecurity is recruiting the boy scouts of am. and training them in search and destroy tactics. Wassup wit dat? There have been all kinds of secret gov orgs being set up to spy on us. I dont doubt that any who stand up vocally for liberty, freedom, democracy, freedom of speech, or in any way verbalize or vocalize their discontent with gov practices are targeted as "terrorists". This includes people who claim rights under the con stitution, libertarians. I wonder why our pres gave 1+ trillion dollars to banks and took over our auto industry. Folks, something stinks here. I learned that home land sec. has been having meetings with your children in school and offering rewards of $200 for information on their parents. Whaaaaat? Anyone who is a vocal Christian, expescially if he "speaks in tongues", is classified as terrorist. Wassup wit dat?

I am fully aware that every email message, every phone call, every program that you watch over cable, and every action you take is monitored by the gov. I feel like a Jew in nazi germany, with brown shirts or gestapo everywhere. If they want you gone, you will disappear in the middle of the night by black clad, heavily armed thugs who are paid to eliminate any opposition.

The nation has been bankrupt since 1933 and totally controlled by vested interests in big business and wall streeters. Our pres is amazing at how quickly he has enslaved us further, consolidated all government power under his administration, passed laws against the people, and for more gov contr

I guess I am a bit down by all this. I can see why Jesus said to be in the world, but not of it. If you haven't put on Christ, you better. There are lots of emptry Fema centers awaiting some event. I suspect mar tial law is in the air soon. Check out ""

I miss America. She was wonderful when the righteous prevailed. Wickedness has invaded our nation at the deepest and highest levels. The people and property of the US have been pledged as security to pay the debts on the loans to the fed. Even that is shocking. The banks own the US Gov, not the taxpayers. The Federal Reserve is totally owned by the banks, and has never been audited. Did you know that the three presidents who came against a "Central Bank" were assassinated? We are simply slaves. Very soon, the taxes are going to skyrocket. Many of us are going to find out for sure if we are willing to die for Jesus' sake.

There is a famine on the way, right now. Food and energy prices are about to explode out of sight. Us old folks on social security have already been targeted as "useless eaters" and we are therefor not "sustainable". Folks over 65 don't get flu shots?
Oh, don't forget about "hate crimes". That means you cannot use anything in the Bible to condemn perverted practices. The Man's first order of business was to sign into law, "partial birth abortion". The blood of the innocent (50 million of em} cries out to God for vengeance. Violence fills our land, as it did just before Noah entered into the Ark, and the wicked of the world were destroyed. I think its about to happen again, only this time, by fire. Hello! Anybody listening. Next he appoints a gay rights activist to control the info being taught to your kids in school. This includes gay stuff being presented as normal and healthy. Wassup wit dat?

I read one document that said that the New World Order plans to quickly eliminate all but 500 million people. Sure hope that was bogus. I don't trust the gov no more.
Don't trust the police, new casts, cable companies, etc. Not since I learned that there are secret cameras and microphones in digital convertor boxes, and in some TVs.
The gov has got some incredibly clever ways of accumulating info.

All of this is in preparation for the final enslavement of the free world, in subservience to the one world gov. The US middle class is nearly Kaputsky.
I love my country, and I pray it, and you, my fellow countryman. Learn how to live with a lot less, and very soon. Happy Veteran's Day.

Finally, our hope and trust is in God. He will not utterly make an end of the US, but we are in for a wrestling match. God knows His own, and is fully in charge of all that is. Nothing escapes His all seeing eye, and I'm not talking about the one on the dollar bill. That one is big brother. In Truth, my Big Brother has more clout that the New World Order. All He has to do is Speak, and everything changes. He gives us some insights in Matthew 24 and in Zechariah and in the Book of Joel.

Jesus is coming for His Bride. Are you prepared? Are you walking in righteousness? If not, than you about to be tested. I pray that all who read this will be accounted worthy to avoid the trial which is coming on all flesh. Yeah, I know that its doom and gloom. Thats only because, that is how I see it. Its possible its just the result of looking too closely at these things. I also see the glorious side of things also. The sleeping church is about to come to a rude awakening. God says that judgement must begin at the house of God. The true church will not fold in this hour, but will shine like the sun. Persecution only pours gasoline on the fires of revival. Look at China. There are more Christians there than in US.

The River is Rising

This has been a season of much rainfall. First it was drought, now there has been so much rain in the land that records are being blown all over. I expect America to have a very harsh winter. Still, the enemies of God are blinded to the Truth. Scripture says that "Surely the Lord God will do nothing without His revealing it first to His prophets". Father God still has His mouthpieces on the planet. There are everywhere, and invisible until God reveals them.
The Word now is, "much shaking, more natural catastrophies, famine, pestilence, earthquakes" (see Matthew 24 in ur Bible). At the same time, He is releasing a sevenfold level of His Glory on His people.
In the last 100 years, more Believers in Jesus Christ have died for their faith in Him than all of those that died since His first appearing. There is a great revival going on now all over the world. The New World Order is now ready to start flexing more of its muscles in the US and trying to dominate Israel. America was first settled by a group of Calvinists in Jacksonville, Fla in 1565. The Spanish settled St Augustine Fla. near by. The Conquistadors, under the direction of the King of Spain and the Catholic Church ordered the slaughter of the Cavlinists if they would not renounce their faith in Jesus Christ, and swear allegiance to the Catholic Church. They refused, and were slaughtered. Nearly 400 of them died.
God has not forgotten, and neither should we. I did not know of this until recently. God is Faithful. That first shedding of blood, has continued until this very day, where over 50 million innocent babies have been slaughtered from the womb.
The earth is soaked with the shed blood of the innocent, and cries out for vengeance to the Maker of heaven and earth. America, even the whole world, is filled with depravity and violence. This is the same as the days of Noah. For sure, some big time blood shed of the voices of opposition to those sicko evil practices, will try to be silenced. As this happens, many are not willing to stand for Christ, nor to die for Him. This makes them not worthy of the Kingdom.
I am convinced that every true Believer is targeted by agents of the NWO. Still, God is in control, whether it looks like it or not. I urge you to get on your knees, humble yourself before God, and receive Christ as your Saviour. It will make an eternal differnce.

Book of Joel

Jesus IS Lord!
Have been spending a lot of time alone lately, reading the Bible, meditating on what He says to me through it. The more I read it, the more I see how short I fall from the true place He has called me to walk in. We are all called to "die to self", and take up our cross daily and walk with it. We are also to "reckon yourself dead to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ". I reckon that is the truth! You know that Jesus was the "Firstborn of MANY brethren". He also says that we were with Him in the beginning, before the foundation of the world! I guess that makes us a lot older than we look. We were created in Christ Jesus for good works. Another, "As He is, so are we in this world". The Book of Joel is being manifested right before our eyes. This is truly the season of the outpouring of the early and latter rains together. Don't know if you have ever bothered to open your Bible and actually read the Book of Joel. I have and is points out some things about the sun and the moon. Once is that the moon is covered in blood, and the sun is darkened. I believe the moon represents the Church which reflects the Light of the Son. Being covered in blood suggests that the Church is suffering to the point of martyrdom. "He who seeks to save his life shall lose it, but he who loses his life for My name's sake shall find it and receive everlasting life". That means dying to self, and loving God more than your own life. The new man is put on once the old man is dead. That can only be done through faith in Christ.
I just learned my little brother Jim is having surgery today. Will go see him in hospital. Your prayers for him are appreciciated. "As you do unto the least of My brithren, so do ye unto Me".
Bless you
