Silence in Heaven

When heaven goes silent let the whole world take notice. Let God’s elect children press on with the beautiful memories that changed their lives forever. With every memory, it will be like a blessing, that solidifies their abiding trust in God. With every memory, the joy leaps within their hearts as peace fills the empty holes left by those who have passed on before them. They have learned how to cherish the silence, remembering the still small voice from God that they had heard so loudly in the depths of their hearts. It had been prophesied more than two thousand years ago that heaven would go silent briefly just before the end, as the seventh seal, the seventh trumpet, and the seventh bowl of God’s wrath simultaneously brings the world to an end. For many, this will be a frightful silence bringing forth the consummation of all things. It is the Lamb of God who opened the seventh seal as each event of the seals, trumpets, and bowls of God’s wrath unfolded simultaneously growing worse through each age from the resurrection of Christ to His return in glory to catch up all of His elect children. Let’s not lockup the encouraging truth in the Book of Revelation needed for each age.

Although the silence will be very brief, it will seem like only a half hour when completed. The Alpha and the Omega is present in every time from beginning to end preparing God’s faithful children for this momentous event when time, from an earthly perspective, will be no more. So, what is happening during this time when heaven is silent? There is a great offering filled with much incense along with the prayers from all the saints cast upon the golden altar before the throne of God. Even during this time of silence from heaven, the prayers from all God’s beloved children rise to heaven as a final offering which returned to earth as peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake (Revelation 8:2-5) to usher in the end. Heaven may be silent, but every prayer from the saints of God will continue to have a powerful impact upon fallen humanity and those who have strayed from the path of righteousness. One of the most important things we can do during the tribulation is to pray earnestly for every soul, especially for those who struggle with unrighteousness. There is great power in prayer to convict, to heal, and to lead God’s elect children to repent.

We must be great encouragers when heaven appears silent among many of God’s children, for this will be a great time of struggle when all they hear is the many conspiracy theories and contradicting voices from the world. We must encourage them to remember the truth, which will be like a bright light overcoming the darkness in their souls. Only the truth will set them free from the shackles of the enemy who has taken them captive by filling the entire world with his lies. Although the great days of shouting the uncensored truth from the world’s many platforms and in the many assembled churches are quickly passing away, nothing should stop us from whispering the truth into the ears of humanity. Nothing should stop us from praying for each soul that we encounter. Nothing should stop us from demonstrating our self-giving love to others. Nothing should stop us from letting our light shine forth with great joy bursting forth from our hearts. Nothing can stop us from turning the other cheek and going the extra mile. Nothing can stop us from trying to release the captives from their prison of immorality sanctioned by the fallen world. Let us press on with the belief that our prayers will not go unheard as they are added to the incense and cast upon the throne in heaven. There is great power in prayer.

With the dawning of every new day all of God’s elect children, from around the world, will meet with the Alpha and the Omega allowing Him to resurrect the many beautiful memories of waking with Him every moment of every day. These precious memories will carry us through the darkest of days. We must not allow the ugliness and foulness of the world to pull us down into the pit of despair. We must not allow the meanness of others to resurrect thoughts of revenge or harbor feelings of unforgiveness. We must not allow the many lies and conspiracy theories to lead us down a very dark and dangerous path, which will drive us further away from the truth. It’s only the truth that will keep us strong and free from the lies of the enemy. The truth has not changed. The truth is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. The moment we start adding senseless doctrine to our beliefs, then it dilutes the truth. The truth must always start with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ who pathed the way to a brand-new life in Him. Some have gotten so far afield with all their beliefs that they have forgotten the simple truth about our transformation in Christ.

Even in the darkest days when heaven seems silent, we must continue our transformation in Christ, or we will slip deeper into the abyss of immortality. The deeper we slip into immortality the more we become slaves of the devil leading us to the altar of the Antichrist. The only way we can truly stop the descent into immorality is to continue our transformation in Christ. Unfortunately, many believe they can control or limit their immorality to acceptable limits being satisfied with their Christianity. They will loudly protest that they are not so bad and that no one better judge them. They have become comfortable in their beliefs and have no desire to press on to their higher calling in Christ Jesus. The Bible describes these souls as lukewarm Christians. Jesus Christ, the Alpha and the Omega, counsels them to put off the old, tarnished life, and put on the new garments of a life that is being transformed in Christ. Then He says, “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent” (Revelation 3:19). The Lamb of God has not forgotten His lukewarm children destined for a life of misery and even the possibility of expulsion from paradise, so He will reprove and discipline them hoping that they will be zealous and repent. Let us continue our prayers for every soul but especially for God’s lukewarm children who are missing out on the glories of their new life in Christ.

We will know with all assurance that we are on the path of transformation when we readily observe the old life of immortality falling off and the new life in Christ being put on day by day. Transformation is a process, which continues every day of our lives. This is not learning how to play church or learning a new sacred doctrine every day. It is not being controlled by our timepieces, technology, and scientific discovery. Transformation is walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ every moment of every day. This is accomplished by keeping in step with the Spirit. The Bible says, “If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25).  When we keep in step with the Spirit then we will produce the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law (see Galatians 5:22-23, ESV). We must ask ourselves; can we observe this Spiritual fruit in our lives? Step by step the Spiritual fruit will grow more robust being displayed in every moment of our lives touching those around us in a very powerful way. Although heaven may appear to go silent for many as we approach the end, they must not let it stop their transformation in Christ that will observe the richest blessings and the most glorious miracles this side of heaven. When heaven goes silent the world will tremble, but God’s children will rejoice that they can feel His presence in the midst of the silence. All glory to God.

Confront the Christian Divisions Now

If we don’t confront the Christian divisions now, then all will be lost. If we don’t confront the Christian divisions now, then hate and disagreements will lead to unbridled persecution. If we don’t confront the Christian divisions now, then death and destruction will be inevitable. If we don’t confront Christian divisions now, then we will witness the great falling away and the extinguishing of the Gospel light leading to a horrifying darkness that will sweep the planet. This is exactly what Satan and the powers of darkness want. They have sought to divide Christianity since the beginning by raising up false prophets to twist the simple message of the Cross. They have gone well beyond the Bible by adding new doctrines and a methodology foreign to the simple truths delineated in the New Testament. We must all take part in confronting the divisions that are ripping Christianity apart. Although the biblical solutions are simple, they will take a great deal of faith to follow, doing things that will be extremely uncomfortable, especially in the beginning. We will examine closely each of these biblical solutions that will heal the divisions in Christianity and reawaken the bright shining light in a very dark world. Although the solutions may appear to take longer, they will not but will have a profound lasting effect upon the fallen world. Continue reading Confront the Christian Divisions Now

Glorify God in the Coming Judgment

God is glorified for many things, but we don’t often think about God being glorified in His righteous judgment coming now upon the earth. God since the beginning has always been glorified when His chosen people followed the path that was laid out for them in loving obedience to His commandments. The Bible says, “Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified” (Isiah 60:21). God brought forth His commandments to show them the path of righteousness and the branch of His planting. This branch looked forward to the salvation of the whole world, a people in distant lands walking in righteousness to the glory of God. God’s work was the gift of His beloved Son to make propitiation for the sins of humanity (I John 2:2). God’s work was the glorious transformation of fallen humanity in Christ by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ (II Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 4:22-24). Furthermore, the God of creation would be glorified as His beloved children would let their light shine through their good works (Matthew 5:16). In time, they would also learn how to glorify God in their body and in their Spirit, which are God’s (I Corinthians 6:20). This would only be the beginning of a deeper journey of glorifying God in every situation including the coming judgment. Continue reading Glorify God in the Coming Judgment

Conquering the Evil From Within

As we approach closer to the end, almost everyone is looking at the evil around them. Very few, unfortunately, look at the evil within themselves. There is no better time than the present to examine the evil lurking in each of us. Remember, that each of us will be judged by a most Holy and righteous God. I must say in the beginning this will not be a popular topic, for looking within can be the most humbling and humiliating experience of our lives. However, it is much better to do it now, rather than being totally exposed and humiliated at the throne of the Almighty. Now, you will have an opportunity to change. When the last trumpet is sounded or if you experience an untimely death, then it will be too late. So, if you are willing to take this journey from within let us proceed. The Holy Spirit will be our guide. He will take you to places that you could never have imagined. Hopefully, it will cause you to have many hours of self-reflection. My hope and prayers are that all who claim to be Christians will take this journey allowing the indwelling Spirit to bring deep conviction to their souls. Let’s begin. Continue reading Conquering the Evil From Within

In The Blink of an Eye (Video)

If you lived for 125 years, compared to eternity that would only be in the blink of an eye. Unfortunately, most live far less than that because of the increase in new diseases, viruses, and other health-related issues. Some have their life ended early because of lawlessness, immorality, and abortion. Others enter death early because of wars, famines, and increasing natural disasters or global warming. Furthermore, over 1 million people die of car accidents every year globally; their lives too have changed in the blink of an eye. We are all dying. Our life span on planet earth is truly in the blink of an eye compared to eternity. After watching this video on my secure website, please share it with everyone you care about. Their eternal life depends on it.
