After my precious article that brought a river of tears to our eyes, I am overjoyed to write this current article that looks beyond the pain and the suffering to a time of fulfilled hope and a glorious victory. Hope is one of the cardinal virtues along with faith and love that are both the solid anchor of our Christianity and the outward expression of who we are in Christ. Hope looks beyond our current suffering to a time when we will be delivered from the fire that has gloriously made us into the perfect image of Jesus Christ. What we have waiting for us far outweighs everything that we can possibly imagine, a million times better than our present reality. Hope beyond our present reality doesn’t diminish our sense of freedom as taught by the powers of darkness but it opens vistas not yet discovered. True freedom is beyond the confines of this earthly body with all its limitations caused by the original sin. Our hope not only longs for a new heavens and a new earth, but it longs for a new body designed to last for all eternity. Our new bodies will not be burdened with the aches and pains that increase exponentially as we age. Nor will it be destroyed by horrific diseases infecting the planet. Moreover, we will no longer struggle against the unrelenting evil thoughts engineered by the powers of darkness. This is our future hope. Continue reading The Hope of Our Coming Victory
We are living in a chaotic world where people and institutions appear to have gone stark raving mad. Most people are saying and doing the unthinkable. On the present trajectory one wonders if the world will survive. Sadly most Christians are caught up in this madness going from bad to worse. Has the world lost its mind as we are being plunged into insanity and the coming apocalypse? This is a question that should haunt all of us. Although we have not yet seen the walking dead, we are seeing more of the population suffering from an increasing number of mental disorders that are causing absolute pandemonium and unbelievable lawlessness. Even our government cannot function because of the anarchy and hateful divisions. None of this appears to be God’s purpose for our lives. The whole world has drifted back into darkness believing that humanity can solve all of its mounting problems. Unfortunately, they can’t. With the coming increase in global suffering, it will only harden the hearts of humanity. Most will blame God and seek to eliminate his followers. As evil and darkness invades our world, God still has the same purpose for humanity. Simply put God’s purpose for our life is transformation, so, that we can become all that God created us to be.

Every true believer in Christ should prepare for the journey beyond this life, even when we don’t know when it will be. We all know that the journey must come, either at our death or at the coming of the Lord. We also know, if we are honest, it can come at any time, in the twinkling of an eye. We will all make the journey. We will all go to a place to be judged in God’s predetermined time, but only God’s elect children will continue making their journey to the gates of heaven. Only the ones who have been chosen since the foundations of the world will be welcomed into paradise (Ephesians 1:4). Make no mistake, only God’s chosen children will have a deep indescribable desire to prepare for the journey. It is our responsibility to help God’s children to prepare now. We should not take this responsibility lightly. Let us all roll up our sleeves and get to work. If you throw this article down and have no interest in preparing for the journey, then you will be most pitted amongst God’s creation and you will have a most difficult time proving your election. So, please let me encourage you to read this entire article very carefully with much prayer and meditation. Your time is coming much sooner than you think. Continue reading Prepare For The Journey
Most every person is a citizen of their respective country with certain rights and privileges. Most of these citizenships are bequeathed at the time of birth. Some are seeking to change their citizenship while others are content with remaining as aliens in a foreign land. Either way, they pridefully assimilate into their new country expecting to receive all the same rights and privileges. Today I want to talk to you about a different kind of citizenship that can’t be earned or pridefully assimilated. This citizenship can only be given at the time of our rebirth or transformation in Christ. This glorious new citizenship is in heaven even while we reside as aliens upon the earth. Although technically we keep our citizenship on earth in our respective countries, we are no longer beholden to its ideology, its humanistic ideals, and its inclusiveness. There is a great difference between our heavenly citizenship and citizenship of the world. When true believers embrace their heavenly citizenship, then they embrace the ideology and exclusiveness of the Kingdom of God and are not beholden to the dictates of their respective countries, which are diametrically opposed. However, this is not what we see in the modern day. Many Christians are beholden to the dictates of their respective countries. Continue reading Living as Citizens of Heaven
I have already written one prophecy as the invasion began into Ukraine and have prayed privately. Now, I believe God is opening a door to pray publicly for the people of Ukraine. I join the rest of the world in being heartbroken for all the people and especially for the children who are suffering. I lift my voice to heaven and ask our Heavenly Father to protect the innocent and especially His beloved children who have been caught up in this tragedy. We pray, Oh Lord, that you will not allow the invading armies to go any further than what’s been predetermined. If it’s only a land bridge that they seek from the Black Sea to Belarus, then stop them, Oh Lord, from proceeding any further. We pray that this horrific war will not harden the Ukrainian people but will cause them to humble themselves before you, the God of Creation. We pray, Oh Lord, that you will be quick to forgive their trespasses and deliver them from the grip of their enemy, both seen and unseen. We pray that you will allow the Ukrainian people to settle peacefully in the Western half of the country. We pray that you will mercifully protect them from any further incursions of the enemy. We pray, that their strong spirit will be a great light to every country in Europe that has mostly turned away from you. Allow the Ukrainian people to be our rear guard from all the Kings in the East. Finally, Oh Lord, we pray for a great blessing upon these people as they turn back to you in faith and obedience to all of your commandments. We humbly pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen Continue reading A Prayer for Ukraine
