When Heaven Goes Silent

There is infighting on the left, shallowness on the right, and lawlessness in the center, yet no one is crying out to hear a voice from heaven. Almost no one is speaking the deep truths of our Almighty God who reigns over all. Although we all acknowledge the lukewarm church and the great falling away, we are still amazed that for most, heaven appears to remain silent. The voice from heaven will not be on social media. It will not come from the halls of Government, it will not come from the news media, and sadly to say, it will not come from public education. Dear friends, only a voice from heaven could cause us to rise from the ashes of despair. Only a voice from heaven could call forth the Lord’s servants to come out from among them and be separate (See II Corinthians 6:17). Only a voice from heaven could unite all of His faithful servants under the banner of self-giving love. So, how do we listen for the voice from heaven? The good news is God’s children can hear the voice from heaven, if they take time to stop and listen. For the rest I’m afraid, heaven will remain silent because they have become so preoccupied with the things of the world. Come with me and I will show you how to listen to the voice from heaven.

To stop what you are doing is a hard thing to achieve in today’s busy world. This is a world that’s so inundated with things to keep us busy accomplishing nothing. We are on the precipice of new technologies that will enslave all of humanity. The only voice that they will hear is from the enemy directing their every thought. This has not happened overnight. The enemy has been busy for many years leading us one step at a time into slavery, slavery of the entire human race. Perhaps the first step, before we discuss the latest technology, was convincing humanity that they needed help from the new professionals of psychology, leading them to believe that they could no longer depend on God to solve their mounting emotional and psychological problems. Mankind was led to spend many hours in counseling and drug therapies, which led to many days of depression or complete withdrawal from reality, and this is important. The next steps into slavery were entertainment through radio, then television, the movie theater, and then the computer screen or cellphone that would open a wide range of possibilities to capture the human spirit and incarcerate his soul. A new reality has arrived on the scene to continuously occupy the minds of fallen humanity every moment of every day. What’s on the horizon will shock even the most stable among us. I pray that you have ears to hear.

Before we continue, let’s look at two more evils that are bringing all of humanity into slavery. As a Christian, I love deeply all races and colors praising God for their individual personalities and their unique gifts, so it breaks my heart to see how the powers to be, have kept the black community in bondage. Their real bondage is to the drugs that they have allowed to flow freely through their communities. This flow is increasing exponentially because some in leadership have pushed to legalize their drugs and make them move available by opening the borders. Although the black community may be the worst hit, it has also flowed unhindered throughout all of society capturing the souls of humanity making them slaves to the enemy. Another evil to bring all of humanity into slavery is public education. I have written many times about this over the years, so I won’t belabor the point now, but I will show you how this fits in with the rest of this article. Simply put, public education is an enemy of classic Christianity. They have unwittingly captured the young formative minds of our children teaching them that it is foolish to depend on God and to obey His commandments. They are the instruments of the powers of darkness to mold our children to accept all that the enemy is bringing upon the world to ensure the captivity of all humanity through his new technologies.

Let’s look briefly at the new technology on the horizon and then summarize all the points to prove that humanity is already on the precipice of worldwide slavery. Then we will look at our only option as God’s children to hear the voice from heaven, the still small voice of our God spoken so miraculously through the indwelling Spirit. This new technology will take all your God given time from morning till night. Its goal is to bring all the internet platforms together for all of life to keep you plugged in and logged on to receive everything you need, or think you need. This metaverse will give the enemy complete access to your every thought, allowing him to direct your thoughts, bringing you deeper and deeper into captivity, which consumes all your time. This new technology will allow you to access any reality right from the prison of your own homes or shelters. In time these other realities will seem more real to you than the physical and spiritual life given to you by our Creator. For those who cannot log on or plug in, they will chase their own reality by accessing the drugs that are now flowing freely right up to their doorsteps with no legal restrictions. Even the schoolhouse will be used to train our children on how to log on or plug in so that they too can choose their own reality just as they have chosen their own gender. In conclusion, this technology is meant to keep you in slavery to the powers of darkness and drive you further away from your relationship with Christ.

Dear friends, you will never hear from heaven as long as you are in captivity. We only have one option. We must come out from among them. The Bible says, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (II Corinthians 6:17). Now, let me tell you plainly upfront, you cannot do this in your own power. No matter how hard you try, you will keep going back again and again to those holding you in bondage. I am telling you the truth. I am not lying. There is only one path out of bondage and that is through Jesus Christ who is our Truth. He is the only One who can deliver us from our self-imposed bondage. You may need to return to the Cross submitting your entire life, once again, if necessary, to Jesus Christ through faith. You will need to confess all of your sins, seeking God’s forgiveness, and believing the Gospel that Christ died for our sins and was raised on the third day to give us a new life in Christ. Through faith, we will receive the indwelling Spirit to help us to grow up in Christ. Please see my previous articles on the subject. Then we must start by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ by obeying all of His beautiful commandments. The Spirit will help you to come out from among those holding you hostage to do their will. He will speak from heaven.

Finally, as already stated, we must come out from among them. You must resist all the godless entertainment that consumes all your time and directs your thoughts. You must not become slaves to the godless social media platforms and stop following every new political development or conspiracy theory that’s holding you hostage and drawing you further away from your Lord Jesus Christ. Remember, that they all consume your time and allows the enemy to direct your every thought leading you into the pit of depression or the valley of immorality. Don’t let anyone other than the pure teachings of Christ direct your thoughts and that even includes godless searches on the internet. When you come out from among them it will leave a tremendous void in your life. When we come out from among them to be separate then it’s essential to find face-to-face relationships. This too will not be easy because the enemy has been working a long time setting up his new empire to make us all slaves and working drones confined to our homes or communities either on the internet or on drugs. Dear children, it is not impossible to come out from among them, we just need to trust the Lord to lead us to other like-minded people that can mutually encourage us. Yes, come out from among them, along with growing up in Christ every moment of every day, is the key to hearing the beautiful voice of God from heaven. Amen

The Day of the Lord Will Come

Why do most Christians say that they believe that Christ can come back at any time but don’t act accordingly? This has been a question that has occupied my mind for some time now. Although we have not yet recognized the man of lawlessness or the dreaded Antichrist, we have all seen the tremendous increase in lawlessness and the many other signs of Christ’s coming. I have personally written about these prophetic signs for many years now, simply adding my voice to the many apostles and prophets that have come before us since the dawn of Christianity (See II Peter 3:1-3). These prophetic signs have become so obvious in our day among most who call upon the Name of Christ that I am appalled that there is such little righteousness observed. It’s as if a dark cloud of lawlessness has engulfed all of humanity, including many who call upon the Name of Christ. I pray that you are not numbered among the lawless, because the Day of the Lord will come, and His coming is imminent. So, how can we be certain that we are not numbered among the lawless? Please continue reading for the time is short and my heart is breaking for many of my friends and family who will not be ready for Christ’s coming.

The true measure of success is our continued spiritual growth in Christ, which must continue from the moment we first believed in Christ to the moment we are caught up to heaven. I am sad to say that most have not even begun the journey beyond their initial acceptance of Jesus Christ. I am sad to say that many have learned well how to play church or just get their free ticket to Heaven, and then fall back into the ways of the world. The good news is that we are not expected to make this journey alone. We are not expected to grow spiritually on our own through hard work and discipline. Just reading the Bible daily like you do the morning paper or saying your rehearsed prayers three times a day will not be of any benefit without the help of the indwelling Spirit. Unfortunately, many in the fallen world have attempted the journey through the discipline of other world religions or pagan rituals but will never attain to the height of true spiritual maturity and the glories of heavenly bliss. They will not be ready for the coming Day of the Lord. So, dear children, let us follow only the Christian Way.  Let us prepare our minds for the greatest journey ever taken by humanity.

So, our starting point must be welcoming our Holy Resident into every area of our life, which the Bible refers to as being filled with the Spirit (See Ephesians 5:18). It is He alone, who will help us to grow from one degree of glory to another. The Bible says, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14:26). Unfortunately, many spurn this wonderful gift from God by grieving the Spirit, which they do by not listening to Him or turning a deaf ear (See Ephesians 4:30). So, our next task is learning how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. This is where most Christians falter. They listen to their own heart, they listen to their desires, and they listen to their limited understanding, or what they have been taught by the fallen world. We must clear our minds completely and only listen to God through the indwelling Spirit. This will give you a completely different way of reading your Bible or listening to others who claim to speak for God. What does God say? This will give you a completely different way to pray by learning how to listen through many hours of deep prayer and meditation. Always asking what does God say (See Revelation 2:11)?

Those who have gone on before us, have learned well what God has said about the necessity of spiritual growth, by putting off the old life, and putting on the new life in Christ. This is a process; this is the journey. If you are not on the journey, then you will not be ready for Christ’s coming soon to usher in the Day of the Lord. Read slowly and carefully Ephesians 4:17-32 asking God to convict you concerning His Word. This passage of Scripture talks extensively about putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. Every time you pick up the Bible read it slowly and carefully until you feel a warning in your heart until you are convicted to ask the indwelling Spirit to help you put off the old life. Believe me, if the Spirit of God is in you, then you will be convicted. You will cry out to God in repentance asking for His forgiveness. I have always read the Bible, without stopping, until I am convicted so that I can put off the old life. Putting off the old life is only one-half of growing up in Christ. If you don’t put the good in place of the bad, then the bad will always come back. This is an extremely powerful truth that must be practiced if you are serious about spiritual growth.

So, our next task in spiritual growth is replacing the bad with the good. We do this by putting on the new life in Christ. A simple illustration will suffice. If I tell you to stop being hateful to others by cursing at them or doing all manner of evil to them in your mind, and then you decide to stop this bad behavior that’s a good thing, but you need to do one more thing. You need to put on the new life in Christ by being kind to others, by only speaking words of love and encouragement. You must fill your mind with only good thoughts about them. This is a complete reversal that’s only truly possible by submitting to the will of Christ through the indwelling Spirit. We simply don’t have the power on our own to change all of our bad behavior. All the counseling, drugs, and rehabilitation will not completely change your behavior. The only thing that will completely change our behavior is putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ through faith. This is the Spirit’s job. So, let’s learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit and allow Him to do His work. His work is to make you into a new creation. It’s a process. It is the journey every believer needs to be on if he wants to be ready for Christ’s coming. The Day of the Lord will come, sooner than you think.

If you look at the world today everyone is planning for a grandiose future even in the midst of their extreme lawlessness. It seems like the entire world is waging war against one another with little thought of love or turning the other cheek. Their so-called righteousness is little more than filthy rags. The world will not be ready for Christ’s coming to usher in the Day of the Lord. The Bible speaks plainly about that Day when it says, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (II Peter 3:10). If the Lord returns as a thief in the night, then I hope you understand it makes little difference what you believe about the timing of Christ’s arrival. Things will happen so quickly you will have no time left for Spiritual growth. You will have no time left to get on the journey. My heart aches for those who will not be ready. The signs of Christ’s coming are everywhere. At the writing of this article, we are seeing multiple earthquakes in California and around the world with dangerously high temperatures in Southern California recording 130° in Death Valley. If we add to this the many raging forest fires it should give us a clear picture of things to come. Wake up dear children the Day of the Lord will come, soon! Are you growing spiritually, every day? I pray that you will be ready.

Please Join me in Prayer …

Good morning Heavenly Father. As self-righteous and prideful men work ever so hard to build their utopia, we as your children look beyond our present reality to a new home filled with agape love and true righteousness. We pray that all of our energy and aspirations will be directed to this coming reality and not consumed with trying to fix what’s broken by whitewashing the unrighteousness of sinful men through the adoption of acceptance and tolerance. We pray that we, your beloved children, will prepare for the promise of the new heavens and a new earth by walking in righteousness every hour of every day. We pray that you will give us strength and wisdom to work every day to strengthen the righteousness of others by teaching them how to walk closer to you, our God. We pray that we can teach them to do this in total dependence, trusting in you alone to complete the process of making us, transforming us, into beautiful new creations. Lead us to be consumed with this work alone as we eagerly look forward to new heavens and a new earth. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says …

“Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (II Peter 3:12-13).

Are You Living the Fulfilled Life?

Unfortunately, most who call upon the Name of Jesus Christ are not living the fulfilled life. Most are controlled by their schedules, rushing from one event to another with little time to relax in between. Worry, anxiety, and stress have become so commonplace, that many don’t realize how much it is affecting their physical and mental health. They don’t realize that when people blow up in public that they have reached their breaking point. When this happens, they don’t understand that anxiety and stress have won the day and crushed another soul. These people are not living the fulfilled life in Christ. Most don’t realize that in the beginning technology was created to save us time and to be more productive. However, what we as a people have gained in productivity, we have lost tenfold, by leading us into a life of captivity to our devices. From morning till night many are glued to their cellphones and computer screens, not just for work, but for all of life. Schedules, alarms, notifications, popups, email, and text messages, continually pull us in one direction then another. Then whatever free time we thought we had, is now gobbled up by the ever-growing social medial platforms, all competing for your time, your money, and your soul. Dear friends, this is not the life that we were created for. If you are interested in living the fulfilled life, then continue reading.

Once you have tasted the good life or the new life in Christ, then you will have no desire to return to your previous life. Jesus Christ said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Dear children, I don’t need to convince you that the god of this world (Satan) is very busy destroying life by leading them into captivity. On the other hand, Jesus Christ came to bring us life beyond our wildest imagination. Once the shackles of slavery have been broken, then we will gloriously live life as God, our Creator, had intended. We will live a peaceful life allowing things to happen as God has ordained them from the dawn of creation. Anxious thoughts and unyielding stress will be put on notice that God’s beloved children will no longer abide by their demonic control. We will be free at last to serve our Creator in heavenly bliss, as time appears to stop. Hallelujah! Clearing your schedules and allowing God’s will to be done, will be the most earth-shattering thing you will ever do other than your original plea for Christ to come into your life and make you into a new creation (see II Corinthians 5:17).

We will need to completely rearrange our life and thoughts through discipline so that the God of peace can freely work in our lives so that we can live the fulfilled life. “Freely work” let that sink in! God cannot freely work if He doesn’t have complete control of our schedules and everything that we allow to pass through our minds. For most, they will need to pull back from their cellphones, and computers giving their time back to God. This is not just a designated amount of time that we set aside for God. We set aside the entire day. That is, every action and every thought are brought before the Lord before we act upon it or before we dwell upon the thought. This will take discipline, remembering to ask God for our daily marching orders. It will take discipline to always ask, “what would Jesus do,” before every action? We don’t hear much about discipline these days but it’s essential if we are serious about living the fulfilled life. Discipline is doing what is right through continuous practice, again and again. We will start with the least difficult discipline and then move to the more challenging. This Christian discipline opens the door to a blissful life in Christ beyond the comprehension of the natural man. It opens the door to a fulfilled life in Christ.

Let me introduce you, once again, to our God of all creation. Our God is not angry, nor is He vengeful. On the other hand, He is a God of peace, love, and joy. So, our first discipline for all of life is, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4). The operative word here is “always.” When we first receive Christ in our lives this is a very easy thing to do, “rejoice in the Lord.” However, in time as we run continuously into the hatefulness and depressing sadness of the world, it becomes more difficult. So, it must become a discipline of remembering all that God has done for us through His amazing providence, where He has, on a number of occasions, worked everything out for the best. It’s also remembering that God is our wonderful counselor and the worker of astonishing miracles snatching people from the fiery pits of hell, all of which bring great joy to our hearts. This great joy established in time is beyond anything we will ever experience. The early Christians were known as happy people who were always rejoicing in the Lord turning the world upside down. As you rejoice in the Lord, you too will witness its profound effect upon the world, causing them to ask, “Why are you so different.” The key to living the fulfilled life in Christ is having God always walking with us in our great joy openly and sincerely expressed to the world.

The second discipline that must be practiced every moment of every day, in every situation is, “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand” (Philippians 4:5). As already stated, these get a bit more difficult as we proceed, but not impossible for God’s elect children. Our greatest motivator for remaining pure in an impure world is remembering that the “Lord is at hand.” This not only means that God can come back at any moment, which He can, but it also means that He is observing our every behavior, good or bad. The clear interpretation of this word “moderation” is that our behavior and character should be so solidified in Christ that nothing could sway us to participate in the world’s unruly or unethical behavior. It’s difficult to take one step into the world and not be tempted by those around you, either in person, in print, or on the cellphone. So, we must be constantly aware of this, so that we can immediately turn away, not gaze upon it, or participate in it. This is crucial if you are serious about having God walk with you every moment of every day, which is our true path to living a fulfilled life in Christ. The wonders that God wants to show you are well beyond what the world has to offer. There is nothing that can match the mystery of God’s beautiful creation and the re-created life of a sinner reflecting His wonderous glory. Living the fulfilled live is truly a foretaste of heaven on earth.

Are you ready for the third discipline? The English Standard Version of the Bible says, “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6). This is a hard saying for those who are living their own lives according to their decisions, their schedules, and their planning. These people will always have anxiety and even stress because things simply aren’t working out as they had planned. The pressure to follow their desires, not accomplished, sends them straight to the counselor’s office or pleading with their doctors for more medication because they have discovered that stress can cause physical problems. By the time we get to the third discipline, we should already be practicing the first two, which opens our eyes to God’s beautiful providential plan for our lives. So, if we see things not working out, that’s creating anxiety, then we need to earnestly pray again asking for God’s perfect plan and His will in the specific circumstance that we are facing. When we pray in faith believing, the Bible says, “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7). We will never live the fulfilled life in Christ if we allow stress or anxiety to re-enter our lives taking us hostage to do the will of the enemy. So, dear children, follow only God’s beautiful plans for your lives allowing Him to walk with you every moment of every day, then you will experience His magnificent peace that defies understanding.

The final discipline that allows us to experience the fulfilled life in Christ is to put a sentinel at the gate of our minds to examine every thought that seeks to enter. Yes, this is the most difficult but not impossible for God’s elect children. This can be especially difficult when we are out among the pagan but don’t be fooled, evil thoughts can come at any time, catching you completely off-guard. So, we must walk with God, every moment of every day. The Bible says,“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8). So, we must always cast our minds onto those things that please the Lord. It is helpful to always ask the question of every thought that wants to enter our mind, “Is this thought pleasing to the Lord?” And if the answer is no, then cast it out immediately; don’t dwell on it for even a millisecond. Cast it out!  When we follow these blessed disciplines, they will help us to walk closer to the Lord, Jesus Christ, which will lead us to experience the fulfilled life beyond our wildest dreams. All glory to God.

What Does God Say Concerning Things to Come?

Give us ears, Oh Lord, to hear what you are saying, about what is going on in the world. We must ask, “Do you really want to know?” In one word, pandemonium. Stark raving madness, unimaginable fear, unnerving stress, uncontrollable anger, thoughts of suicide, or striking back to harm others is running rampant throughout the entire world. Nearly every person is being affected by one or more psychological problems known to man, driving many into a dark pit of depression, while many others feel as if they will explode from within. No, this is not some sci-fi movie, it’s happening now. It’s reality. So, what is happening that could cause such chaotic behavior? Could this help us to see what is on the horizon, to see clearly the things to come? Let’s listen to what God is saying, while we still have ears to hear. Let me say upfront, this is not another conspiracy theory, but it will be our last warning of things to come. For over two thousand years from the writing of the book of Revelation to the present day, many have sounded the warning of things to come. So, what makes this warning different will become self-evident later in the article.

So, what is happening now in the world? I suppose we would need to be living on another planet to not know what is happening. It started over a decade ago with the news media wanting to give the other side of the story allowing the public to decide. “We report and you decide.” As time progressed the arguments became more detailed and hotly debated with each side, garnering their own supporters. This opened pandora’s box by giving others, not just the politicians, a voice or opinion in the public arena. Finally, this opened another door to the very popular social media platforms, which gave everyone a voice and a following from those who agreed. The divisions continued unabated as the world slept. Everyone was able to express his or her own opinion publicly. It did not take long before simple opinions would turn into legitimate causes and strongly held beliefs. It did not take long for old grievances to surface bringing forth more powerful forces to divide the people. As new leaders arose, they were accused of fanning the flames of discontent and creating more divisions among the people, while another leader was accused of taking half the country in a completely different direction. These divisions continued unabated waiting for a spark to lite the fuse.

The spark finally came with the pandemic that pushed people beyond what they could handle. Although divisions had been growing for more than a decade with sudden spurts of unimaginable lawlessness and mass shootings, it wasn’t until the pandemic before we witnessed the greater tragedy. In an instant, the whole world was turned upside down. Although the loss of employment was tragic, the greatest factors were isolation and a disrupted routine that affected the psyche of nearly every person. Wearing a facemask, sanitizing everything, and changing our schedules paled in comparison to the sudden increase in lawlessness, mass shootings, and growing divisions among the people. New divisions were precipitated by different opinions and questionable facts concerning the vaccine, reopening schools, wearing a facemask, or where the virus originated from. These divisions not only pitted one person against another, but it brought into question the validity of our trusted scientists and government leaders. This too has had a profound effect upon the psyche of the people. Who can be trusted to tell the truth? As occasional shocking lawlessness and mass shootings appeared across the country, in time they turned into daily and hourly events, which has dulled the senses. With every tragic event, it has pushed people to the brink, escalating their psychological problems, and creating pandemonium in the streets of the world.

These divisions did not happen by accident. They did not happen in a vacuum. These divisions have been orchestrated by the powers of darkness, pitting one side against another for some time now. Everything from the news media to social media was used to create this divide encouraging everyone to speak their opinion, even encouraging them to fight back with aggressive and hateful rhetoric, as long as it is for the liberal viewpoint. On the other hand, a time has already come where conservative views are considered decisive. Social Media has been given the power to silence the voice of anyone they disagree with by banning them from their platform. As we shall see, Satan will use these divisions to his advantage. He will send forth his agent, the Antichrist, when the time is right as a savior of humanity. He will come at a time when most people think that they can’t take anymore. Satan’s Antichrist will come as a savior proclaiming to unite all the factions, to stop the infighting, and bring about unity. However, this is only a smokescreen, for his real intentions are to only uphold his new liberal norm and if anyone disagrees, they will be seen as decisive. They will be seen as an enemy of the State.

So, what does God say concerning things to come? If you have read this far, then I assume that you are a Christian and sincerely want to know. Every article written, and its accompanying video, begins at the feet of Jesus Christ or it’s not worthy to be published. These are the most perilous times for God’s beloved children because what’s evil will appear to be good, and what’s good will appear to be evil making it difficult for the novice (See Isiah 5:20). The Bible says, “The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved” (II Thessalonians 2:9-10, ESV). The man of lawlessness (or the Antichrist) through his wicked deception will unite the entire world to follow his teachings. He will promise to save the world from wars, hunger, and what he calls global warming. They will eagerly believe that he will unite all races together as one, demonstrating mutual respect for one another. He will garner the support of the religious leaders who will lead you to give him praise and adoration for all of his braggadocious accomplishments (See Revelation 3:11-18). If you decide not to follow him and his teachings, then it will be most difficult for you.

So, you will need to stand firm in what you have been taught from the Holy Scriptures. God’s promise to you, is that the Holy Spirit will not leave you alone. He will bring to your memory all that He has taught you through the indwelling Spirit. Remember, that the people are deceived because they don’t love the truth in order to be saved (See II Thessalonians 2:10). On the other hand, we who love the truth will reject the lie of wicked deception. We reject the lie not only for us individually but also for our children and our grandchildren. We reject the lies in the Schoolroom. We reject the lies in the halls of Government. We reject the lies in the News Media, and social media. We reject the lies in movies, TV series, and videos. We reject the godless lies of psychological counseling even if it appears to be good by integrating it with religious teachings. For all these lies are leading us into the waiting arms of the Antichrist. What makes this particularly difficult is that many of these lies are endorsed by the religious establishment. So, what are we to do? Love the truth. Our love for the truth concerning our creation, our new birth in Christ, and His beautiful laws that give us everything we need for life and godliness, will shine as a bright light on the lies of the world exposing them for what they are. If we love the truth, then we will come out from among them and be separate (See II Corinthians 6:17). Can you hear it now? The hoofbeats of the Antichrist are getting louder. Stand Firm.

 Subject: “Come out from among them”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, you know well, how your children are so integrated within the social fabric of our society. At times it’s most difficult to tell that your people are any different than the people of the world. They may act differently in Church and try their best when around other mature believers, but you are keenly aware of how they act when socializing with those in the world. We pray, Father, that you will help them to truly come out from among them and be separate. Show them if they truly act like Christians filled with your Spirit, then it will be much easier because the world will come out from them. In fact, in most cases, they will be shunned by the world or openly ridiculed. Help them, Lord, to guard their eyes and ears by immediately turning away from evil people or gently cutting off their hateful talk by sharing the simple Gospel with great power, but only as you lead. Finally, help them to grow up in Christ, so that they can let their light shine brightly before the world. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says …

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (II Corinthians 6:17).

Sowing and Reaping – God Sees

God sees everything is probably one of the most amazing verses in the Bible. I would venture to say that most of humanity doesn’t know that and the ones that do, rarely think about it. Yet, the Bible says, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3). “Both the evil and the good,” I can’t even imagine how God must feel as He beholds all the evil in the world, all of it, instantly as it’s happening, in real-time. Just to say, it breaks His heart, which I am sure It does, misses the depth of what’s happening. God since the creation of the world has put forth and established certain rules that govern all of nature including the crown of creation, humanity. There is no escaping it, there is no way to get around it. There is the law of cause and effect. For every cause, there is an effect. It is the rule of nature and the only one in the universe that can change it is God, or one in whom God empowers. More about that later. For now, let’s concentrate on the cause and effect, especially as to how it’s related to all of humanity, without exception.

Typically, when any kind of premise, like the premise of cause and effect, is stated, it will be mocked. To mock this premise, which is a rule of nature, is to mock the Creator, the one who established the building blocks of creation. Now let’s look at His established Word once again, the Bible says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7-8). God sets forth the premise of sowing and reaping. The law of cause and effect, you will always reap what you sow. We will look at the negative first. “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption.” Cause and effect! So, let’s look briefly at what sowing to the flesh means. We will move from the general to the specific. Generally speaking, anything done to the body, the soul, or the mind, that’s harmful, either intentionally or through willful neglect is sowing to the flesh. This is the cause, and the effect is reaping corruption.

So, before we elaborate on the corruption, let’s get a bit more specific in sowing things to the flesh, which are inherently harmful. Of course, most believers could immediately come up with a catalog of sins, and they would be correct because every sin has a profound effect upon the mind, the body, and the soul, which is the flesh. For example, we all know that gluttony (overeating) or purposely eating processed food, or any other kind of food that’s not good for you will harm the body leading to obesity and a myriad of different diseases or health-related problems. Cause and effect. Another example is we all know that laziness, the desire to lie around the house all day, or our unwillingness to work will also have a powerful effect upon the whole body, mind, and soul leading to mental anguish, psychological problems, and physical poverty. The list could go on and on, but we can easily see there is cause and effect. Our wrong thinking and actions will always lead to tragic circumstances. Cause and effect. Now we need to multiply this exponentially as we look at all of humanity in the midst of their chaos.

God has given humanity His beautiful laws to govern all of our thinking and actions to keep us from going off the proverbial cliff. Well, humanity has rejected those laws choosing to legislate their own morality. They have become a law unto themselves reaping the consequences of their bad behavior. They have all been sowing to the flesh and now they are all reaping corruption. Every new disease and every new virus are getting far worse, reaping death and destruction across the entire planet. Mankind is reaping what he has sown. God will not be mocked. He sees every action precipitated by every evil thought. Humanity can point its finger all day long to the accepted causes of the current COVID-19 virus, the alarming increase in global warming, and the unbelievable chaos in the world with its nonending riots and mass shootings, but they will not ever admit to the real cause. We are reaping what we have sown. Rejection of God’s Law in the Schoolroom and the halls of Government has caused an epidemic of crime, sexual immorality, and unheard-of perversions. It has caused the horrific weather patterns around the entire world that keep getting worse every day, not to mention the increasing so-called natural disasters. As the entire world sinks into oblivion for their rejection of God, it’s difficult to paint a clear picture of things to come. Hollywood has been trying to paint this picture for many years now with their ever-increasing “end of the world” movies, but nothing will capture the real horror of the things to come.

As the world passes new laws, one after another, to fix what they believe is causing their problems, they will slip deeper and deeper into the abyss trying to drag God’s children with them. New laws will be passed requiring psychological counseling and the taking of prescribed drugs and vaccinations to fight every new epidemic or ever-increasing lawlessness. As mass murders and suicides skyrocket even more laws will be passed to no avail. Dear friends, we have one of the greatest challenges ahead of us. Let’s pray that we are up to the task. As the world falls apart and it will, then they will finally discover that all their psychological counseling was useless as humanity is ready to explode. We must step up to the plate allowing God to work through us. Last week we talked about confronting an evil world. Today we will discuss how to become even more effective in confronting an evil world by sowing to the Spirit and not to the flesh. Sowing to the flesh will be of no value as we confront an evil world. So, we must die to self along with all of our selfish ambitions. The Bible says, “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts” (Galatians 5:24). When you die to self and allow the Spirit of God to come and dwell in your hearts, then you will have taken the first step in sowing to the Spirit.

The Bible says, “… but we that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:8). Step by step we will learn how to live in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, and bear fruit of the Spirit. This will give you a completely different mindset, not an earthly mindset of being self-centered, but a heavenly mindset of being other-centered. Remember, that Jesus Christ did not come as a rich man, setting up charities, and giving His money to the poor. No, He reinstituted the beautiful Law and showed humanity a better way of living for others. He came to give Himself completely to others every moment of every day. Even many of His great miracles of healing reversed the natural law of cause and effect through their, God given, faith. When we sow in the natural world, we cultivate, fertilize, and water the seedlings so that they grow. We do the same in the spiritual world by keeping in step with the Spirit and by following His lead in our every thought and action. We will soon discover that our every thought and action is about doing good to others by only speaking the truth wrapped in love. It’s only the truth that will set them free (See John 8:32). The Bible says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:9-10). Dear children, to speak the truth and to do good to all men will do more than all of their laws, all of their counseling, and all of their political maneuvering. Let us be the change that the world desperately needs by giving ourselves to all that has a need.

Please join me in prayer …

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for sending us the indwelling Spirit, our true Helper in all things. We know that the more we seek you in our ministry to others, the easier it becomes, and greater is the reward. We know in the beginning it’s quite difficult because most people don’t have the patience to wait upon you to fill them with your Spirit. Yet, without the Spirit we are nothing, nor can we do anything to really help others on how they should be helped. We are especially thankful for giving us the exact words to say at the appropriate time to bear their burden, especially if they have been overtaken in a trespass. We know the more we cultivate our relationship with the Spirit, the easier it becomes to really be good to others in a way that truly helps them. We pray that all of your children will continue to sow to the Spirit so that they can receive a harvest of Spiritual fruit and gifts to be used in being good to others, that is, to truly help them. We humbly pray this the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
