When the World Turns Away

What do you do when the world turns away and no longer wants to hear the messages from God through the indwelling Spirit? When this happens it will be a most difficult time, cutting deep within your heart, especially if it comes from old, trusted friends and family members. I believe we all know why this is happening if we have truly understood the days in which we are living. The Bible talks about this day when there will be a great falling away. Simply put, people no longer have time for God and the things of God. They no longer have time for deep prayer and meditation that can take hours at a time. They no longer have time to read their Bible or read the Spirit-filled messages from mature believers in Christ. They no longer have time to put the old life off and put the new life on in Christ through transformation. They no longer have time for the deep things of God, yet they have plenty of time to chase after every news article from the world or contemplate the latest conspiracy theory. If we are faithfully following Christ, then people will turn away. So, what do we do when the world turns away? Continue reading When the World Turns Away

Only Servants Are Called Prophets

In the Last Days, many will claim to speak for God as His anointed prophets. However, the true test of a prophet is that they are servants of the Most High God. Servanthood is a great subject that’s not understood or recognized in the modern world but is essential for every true believer in Christ. Many of the great prophets and Apostles of old claimed that they were servants of God and later servants of Jesus Christ their Lord. There was a clear understanding of the meaning of Lord, who is Master, a meaning all but lost in our present day. The early Christians understood the relationship between the master and the servant or between the lord and the slave. It was an easy concept to grasp when they followed Jesus Christ as Lord and Master. They happily accepted their new position as slaves to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. They understood the amazing benefits of being in the household of an all-powerful God and the great responsibility of being His servant. Let us pray that we will also understand the depth and majesty of this relationship between us and the Most High God of heaven and earth. Continue reading Only Servants Are Called Prophets

When the World Stops Listening

They say the mind can take only so much and then it stops listening. Some are calling it overload, while others are calling it selective hearing.  Whatever it is, it appears that the whole world has stopped listening. They have turned away from the ancient religions and are embracing a new future that promises many unbelievable advances in technology. These changes promise to enhance humanity’s ability to experience a deeper understanding of the entire universe and their unique place in it. These changes promise to give them a fulfilled life where the whole world will come together as one in peace and tranquility. These changes promise to open the door to a new reality where anything is possible from communicating with the animal kingdom to utilizing artificial intelligence to enhance their abilities. Nothing seems impossible to a world that has jettisoned classic Christianity for a brave new world. Although many will continue to play church, they no longer trust in God for their future, and they no longer trust in religion to chart their path ahead. They have joined the lukewarm church and no longer listen to God exclusively. Continue reading When the World Stops Listening

Don’t Give Up on God

We are now clearly in the time of the falling away, especially in the West (II Thessalonians 2:3). I believe that many have simply given up on God. Perhaps they have forgotten or haven’t ever known that God loves them deeply. Perhaps with the discovery of the size and depth of space with its infinite distance, mankind feels that they are too small in the sight of God, or they feel insignificant. They ask candidly, “Does God believe in me?” With all the horrific pain in the world, many ask does God really care. They ask, “How can a loving God allow this tragic circumstance, happen to me?” Every day it gets tougher for humanity. Every day many wonder if they can make it another day as the world grows increasingly more dangerous from unchecked lawlessness to the threat of a nuclear war. Every day many experience the trauma of emotional and psychological problems. Every day many feel the brunt of the many different natural disasters destroying their homes, their livelihoods, and even their loved ones. Let’s be quite clear Satan, our old arch-enemy, wants us to give up on God. His one aim is to destroy your relationship with God. Continue reading Don’t Give Up on God

Revelation Revealed in an Epiphany

I have studied the book of Revelation and taught its truths for 45 years. I have also written and published three books on its timeless truths. Today I will be presenting an amazing overview of the revelation that I received from the hand of God in what I have called an epiphany. I am not certain if I was caught up, had a theophany, or had an epiphany, but I am certain that it was different from anything that I have ever experienced before. For many years I have heard the still small voice of God through the indwelling Spirit, but this last experience was totally different. Typically, the indwelling Spirit will give us the correct words to say or write at a given moment in time. The Holy Spirit can also help us see the depth of Biblical doctrine and have a clearer understanding of Biblical prophecy. We can build our doctrine over time, developing a larger picture of God’s past, present, and future dealings with humanity. However, we don’t often get the big picture all at once, including all of time, which is understandable because we live in the here and now. We live in the present. On the other hand, Christ said that He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning, and the end (Revelation 22:13). He is not locked into time but sees it all, the past, present, and future all at the same time. Continue reading Revelation Revealed in an Epiphany
