A Critical Time for Getting Direction from God (Video)

If God is really your friend, then you want to listen to Him. We need to hear what God really says, and not what we think He says. I can’t overemphasize how important it is to speak with one unified voice from God, who is One. This is a very critical time, not only for our country but for the entire world that needs explicit direction from God. After watching this video on my secure website, produced specially to help God’s children to stand firm, please share it with others.

A Critical Time for Getting Direction from God

If God is really your friend, then you want to listen to Him. We need to hear what God really says, and not what we think He says. I can’t overemphasize how important it is to speak with one unified voice from God, who is One. This is a very critical time, not only for our country but for the entire world that needs explicit direction from God. If you tell me that you have a lot of friends on this earth, then I will ask you, “Do you enjoy listening to your friends?” Do you really want to hear what they say, or are you more interested in just hearing your own voice? True friends listen to one another. My heart aches to hear the voice of my wife, who can no longer speak because she has advanced Alzheimer’s. My ears also ache to hear the still small voice of God. I have learned a lot about listening over the years and even taught classes on how to listen in the business world and also as a Christian counselor. The first thing I noticed about most people, is that they don’t want to listen unless it’s listening to themselves. They love to hear the sound of their own voice or even the sound of their thoughts. I would say that people like this don’t have very many true friends; most of their friends are in name only. Unfortunately, this also applies to calling God your friend, when you don’t take time to listen.

Let me say upfront, that listening is an art, it takes a lot of hard work. So, if you are interested, then let’s proceed. Remember, dear children, true friends listen to one another. And if God is your friend then we must learn how to listen, to really listen. Let’s be clear, God is not a man! If we are not listening, and God knows it, then He will not speak. It is a proven fact, that man has become very good at pretending that he is listening when he is not. Man has learned how to conveniently turn off his hearing, even while smiling when he does not want to hear what the other person is saying, especially if the other person is casting insults at the speed of light or making idle threats. No, I can tell you exactly what they are doing. Instead of listening, they are thinking about their response, ready to launch it the moment they get an opening. You might be thinking, what does this have to do with listening to God? Everything! When most people enter their prayer closet, they have their opening and off they go with a laundry list of complaints, or things they need or want to see accomplished. When they do, they are not listening. They may be storming the gates of heaven, but they are not listening.

Typically what happens when a person enters his prayer closet with his laundry list, even if he ends it with a generalized plea to lead me, guide me, and speak to me, it’s only done to cover all the bases because he has not learned how to listen. So, the starting place must be, after you have emptied your laundry list, then you must empty your mind. Yes, you heard me correctly, empty your mind of everything. No, I never did say, that this would be easy! Clear your mind completely and be ready to hear His every word. This should be the same when we approach His words in the Bible. Empty your mind of all that you have been taught, along with all of your preconceived ideas, and allow God to speak to you through His words in the Bible. I can easily spend two to three hours on one verse of Scripture allowing God to speak to me before moving on to the next verse. Roll the verse over and over again in your mind blocking out anything and everything that would pull your mind away. Now coming to God completely alone without anything but a blank slate, nothing in your mind, with no preconceived ideas, and no laundry list of prayer requests may seem to be a little more difficult, but it doesn’t need to be so. For the novice, you will always need to begin by bringing the Holy Scripture with you, at least until His Word is firmly planted in your heart. The indwelling Spirit will often pull upon the Scripture bringing it to your mind, even using Scripture that you may not have looked at in years.

Now that you have completely emptied your mind of those preconceived ideas on what God is permitted to say, those ideas that must align with your own pathetic, contradicting theology, then you are ready to listen to your true friend. A word of caution is necessary at this point, God will not contradict or violate His own words in the Bible (His actual words, not your interpretation of them). So, the very important next step is, we must be willing to spend all the time necessary in silence and solitude. The ancient Christians could spend days doing this, whereas moderns have a most difficult time spending more than a half-hour and if it’s a full hour then they make a big show of it. Also, the time, choice of time, and length of time come directly from God, or you are wasting your time. The time could come in the middle of the night, or when you are getting ready for bed, or it can come when you purposely enter your prayer closet for no other reason than to hear the voice of God. It can also come when you are quietly praising and thanking the Lord for everything that He has done for you. Just be ready at any time or any place to hear that beautiful still small voice of God. How thrilling it is to hear the voice of God.

Finally, this is exactly how we should feel about hearing the voice of our true earthly friends, especially our brothers and sisters in the Lord. Unfortunately, we don’t really want to hear from them any more than we want to hear from God unless they or He says exactly what we want to hear. This is why we have so much division in the world today and it’s getting worse by the moment. The divisions keep splintering again and again into smaller groups of people who just want to hear what they have to say. They love their own little echo chambers accented by social media. There is no wonder why there are so many divorces, so many denominations, so many different hate groups, and so many demonstrations. No one wants to listen, to really listen to what the other person has to say, and this includes God, the One who created us. I have seen this many times in how people communicate on messenger or text messages. Before you ever get finished with your message the other person is already typing away, without ever taking the time to read what you had just written. Dear children, true friends want to listen to one another. Are you a true friend of God?

Until you truly learn to listen to what others say, you will miss much of what God is saying. Although God often speaks to us through the indwelling Spirit during our times of silence and solitude, He also speaks through others when they don’t even know that they are being used as God’s mouthpiece. Maybe it’s just one word spoken unbeknownst to them that will open a whole new understanding of God’s magnificent plan for your life. God has been speaking a lot lately and no one is listening. The Bible says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27). “Thus saith the Lord,” appears to be falling on deaf ears. We are living in perilous times when everyone is divided against one another with two old men vying to lead the country. One supposedly just speaking in gaffs, while the other one supposedly just speaking in lies. We really need to hear what God wants to say to the hearts and minds of His children, His true friends. Are you listening? Let me suggest that you review last week’s video of what God is saying to us now. The name of the video is, “To the Christians Living in America.” No matter how bad the world becomes, don’t let it affect you. You can follow all their rules as long as they don’t violate God’s beautiful commandments and still let your light shine. Yes, even through a mask. I just learned last week that our eyes shine brightly even when others can’t see our big smile and the love of God in our hearts. Dear children, stand firm and listen to hear God’s voice.

Know the Watchman on the Wall (Video)

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. After watching this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.

Know the Watchman on the Wall

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. Until that happens my friend, we must remain calm, we must remain watchful, and above all, we must listen for the voice of the Watchman. We are confident that God will do nothing without letting His prophets know so that they can sound a clear and decisive warning. The Bible says, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Unfortunately, we are living in a day with many contradicting voices, some saying one thing and some saying another. There is no clear decisive voice but only a multitude of voices creating greater confusion, which has been the devil’s plan from the beginning. The greater the confusion the less we will be able to hear the warning.

This is becoming an even larger problem as we approach the end. The evil world is increasingly reporting and speaking the first thing that comes into their foolish hearts without ever checking their facts or getting corroborating evidence. They don’t spend the necessary time to properly vet their stories nor do they discern what damage it could cause others if the story is not one hundred percent correct. Moreover, they don’t demonstrate that they have any prudence in the matter whatsoever. If they were prudent then they would not be so quick to report or say what they think they know. It appears for the first time in history, everyone has their own little soapbox broadcasting whatever pops into their minds. We have seen the great damage that this has caused. It has destroyed lives, uprooted families, and driven a deeper wedge between political parties. We are seeing how this is also pitting different races and nationalities one against another bringing our country to the brink of civil war.  The tremendously sad part about all this is it’s spilling over into the Christian community, especially the carnal Christians, leading them to do the same. You would think that Christians should know better from their teachings in Holy Scripture. The Bible says, “A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness” (Proverbs 12:23).

God has given His children a wealth of knowledge in the Bible along with great wisdom gained through applying His truth to our lives. And for those who have gone on before us, they have shared their wisdom in the Bible for living a godly life in an evil world. God’s children are called to be prudent and not foolish. We know that some information is useful for a warning, for comfort, and for building others up in Christ. On the other hand, some information could be destructive, damaging, and lead others into a greater pit of confusion. Therefore, it’s essential that we only pass on information that’s useful for building others up in Christ, helping them to become all that God wants them to be. We need to share information that truly helps other believers to experience transformation in Christ. It’s also necessary, on occasion, to warn others of impending doom and enslavement by the enemy. However, we mustn’t allow these occasional warnings to drown out our responsibility to grow up in Christ working every moment of every day to put off the old life and put on the new life, straining forward to our ultimate objective of transformation in Christ. Remember dear children, this is only a proving ground for eternal life in Heaven. Walk in the Spirit.

As already stated, Jesus Christ is our true Watchman on the wall. All other sources in the world that attempt to warn us of the dangers that lie ahead are seeing through a glass darkly. They simply don’t have a clear picture of things to come. To rely solely on these other sources will only create greater confusion. Moreover, for those who attempt to integrate these sources from the world with their limited ability to interpret Scripture will also not have a clear picture of those things to come. If these things are professed publicly on social media and the internet it could bring great harm to God’s people. We must listen solely to the true Watchman on the wall, Jesus Christ. As God’s beloved children listen only to Christ, they are also led by the indwelling Spirit to be prudent in the knowledge they receive. This is extremely important! Although His servants may have an idea that’s beginning to formulate in their minds on what they think they see in the world, they have also learned how to watch, remain quiet, and WAIT for the appropriate time to sound the warning.

Why is this so important to watch, to remain quiet, and wait before sounding the warning. God has never called His servants the prophets to guess. He called them to be absolutely sure. We have all heard the story about the wolf and the little boy. He kept sounding false warnings and then when the wolf really came, no one believed him. We can only imagine how disastrous it was as the wolf ravaged the little village. We must be absolutely certain before we sound the warning. Having said that, I am not certain who the beast is, and what he will use to mark his followers, those who will freely worship him. On the other hand, I have been sounding a warning for years now, and only a few are listening. Yet, it’s these warnings that will help us to truly identify the beast. Yes, I am watching everything going on, but mainly I am listening to Christ, our Watchman on the wall. Let me say very clearly that anyone who leads God’s children to put their trust in another person, a government, or an agency is already acting like the Antichrist or the beast of Revelation. I have been sounding the warning for many years that the psychiatric industry is leading humanity to put their trust in the system of the beast to provide for all of their emotional and psychological needs.

Finally, our friends in China have given us this unique kind of virus that’s forcing the entire world into lockdown, which the coming Antichrist will use to his advantage. There is something far worse than the physical effects, other than for our older population, that’s invading our world. There is another pandemic sweeping the planet to rob God’s children of their peace. Social media has become the megaphone for their hearts allowing the entire world to see their deep-seated fears, anxiety, and their inner turmoil. This inner conflict is driving them to chase after one conspiracy theory after another in an attempt to explain their growing emotional and psychological problems, which are ripping them apart. What they long for is peace. They desire peace in this very unusual storm that’s affecting humanity in a way never seen before, but thanks to social media we are now seeing it loud and clear. Lockdown is having its effect! We implore all of God’s children, who are being torn apart by this unseen enemy driving them to the threshold of insanity, to turn back to God alone. We need to empty our minds of all this foolishness circulating on the internet and social media and fill our minds with only Christ’s teachings about rejoicing, moderation, prayer, thanksgiving, and how to reject anxiety so that we can discover the amazing peace that defies understanding (See Philippians 4:7). If we fail to do this then my prophecy will come true and the psychological industry will be overwhelmed causing the government to create an edict that everyone must submit to the will of the counselor before they can reenter the society of buying and selling. On that day we will know and proclaim loudly the identification of Antichrist.

Are You Fit for the Kingdom? (Video)

Jesus Christ stated that some people simply aren’t fit for the Kingdom. What? Yes, that’s correct! Until they change their way of thinking, they are not fit for the kingdom. This has proven to be a huge problem in today’s world. Many have come into the church without changing their way of thinking. They have come into the church and have expected, no demanded, that the church change its way of thinking to fit their interests and desires.
