Every Man on Earth is Sick with the Fever of Sin   2 comments

This is from the blog Dover Beach:

“Every man on earth is sick with the fever of sin, with the blindness of sin and is overcome with its fury. As sins consist mostly of malice and pride, it is necessary to treat everyone who suffers from the malady of sin with kindness and love. This is an important truth, which we often forget. Very often we act in the opposite manner: we add malice to malice by our anger, we oppose pride with pride. Thus, evil grows within us and does not decrease; it is not cured – rather it spreads”

–John of Kronstadt

Eagles over America   10 comments

Prophets over America

Last week the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41-33 in the Super Bowl.  I didn’t watch the game:  I have boycotted the NFL this past season because certain players refuse to stand for the National Anthem.

Here is a comment that I left on Tony Puccio’s blog My Dreams and Visions:

Tony: You probably noticed that, a week ago, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl. Definitely a sign from God. “Eagles”, of course, means prophets. Philadelphia was probably the most important city in Revolutionary War America (1776-1783). You could call this comment “Eagles over America”.

I believe the Eagles victory over the Patriots in the Super Bowl means that the prophets in America are going to do more powerful things for the Lord and that many more people will notice this and also begin to respect prophets more. There are still too many Christians that believe that apostles and prophets and the power of the Holy Ghost no longer have a place in the church (they say that these offices or gifts died out in the first century).

I believe “Patriots” is also significant. Patriots can be Christian or non-Christian. Right now we are in a great spiritual war (revolutionary war) between Christian Patriots and Satanic Globalists (Rothschild-Soros-H.W.Bush-Clinton-Obama Cartel) in the United States and throughout the world. The fact that the Eagles defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl means that the eagles (prophets) are in a position of leadership for the patriots of America. The prophets will lead the Christian patriots as we continue to have victory over the globalists.

President Trump is one of the important eagles (prophets) in the world that the Lord has positioned to lead the Christian patriots.

William Lloyd Garrison, 1805-1879

This is from the blog Dover Beach:

“I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! no! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; — but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD.”

–William Lloyd Garrison

Hog Pen Christianity   11 comments

This is from the blog The Christian Excavator:

“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins…” (Colossians 1: 12-14)

One contemporary song says, “I have felt Him loose the chains of sin and set my spirit free, For I know what Jesus did for me” (Squire Parsons)

But we live in a day when many Christians have no idea what it means to be free from the chains of sin. People behave like the world even though they claim to be saved by Gods grace. If it wasn’t for their Christian tattoo [sic] you would never know that they were “saved”.

They talk, and live, just like the unsaved world around them. They love exactly what the world loves and if you mention holiness to them, you are undoubtedly a Pharisee. Many modern-day preachers tell people (in so many words) if you came forward or you raised your hand or repeated a prayer, you are saved. No matter how you live. No matter how sinful you are. No matter that you have no desire for holiness whatever. You have repeated the “magic” words, so you are okay. I warn every preacher, every Christian and every parent, you are not doing anyone any favors by giving people assurance while they are living in sin. By the way, it is not our job to give people assurance. If God hasn’t changed the “bent” or the direction of your life you have no reason to believe you are a Christian. It is true that Christians will sin but the true child of God is not content to stay in sin. If God delivers you out of the hog-pen, you’ll have no desire to live there again.

I am afraid that we have produced a lot of “hog-pen Christians” in our day. The late A.W. Tozer said, “then they build a little tabernacle and call it the First Tabernacle of the Converted Swineherds.”.

Tozer went on to say; Somebody suggested that the cross of Christ should not inconvenience people. Well, it is the most inconvenient thing in the world, this cross of Christ! It took a man by the name of Jesus in the height of his healthy human life and took Him out on a hillside and killed Him there – now, that’s an inconvenient thing for Him! And any cross is inconvenient; it’s a most inconvenient thing, this accepting Christ, if we know what we mean by it. BUT THE ACCEPTING CHRIST OF POPULAR THEOLOGY HAS NO INCONVENIENCE ATTACHED TO IT.

I spoke with a man not long ago who had spent most of his adult life in prison. He was a drug dealer and user. I had known him when he was a little boy. His parents and sister went to the same church as I did as a teenager. He told me he was saved when he was a child. While we were conversing on the phone he was cursing and drinking alcohol. He had served time in prison for committing several violent crimes and was still addicted to drugs. There was nothing in his life that indicated he was a Christian. Yet he said he had been “saved” as a child. He went on tell me that several Baptist preachers in my area had assured him that he was saved. I told him that by the authority of Gods Word and every evidence in his life, he assuredly had no reason whatever to think he was saved. We spoke for over an hour. I gave him scripture and implored him to turn from his sin and turn to Christ. As far as I know he did not. But before he hung up he thanked me. He said to me. “You are the only preacher that I have talked to who was honest enough to tell me the truth.”

If Christ didn’t change your life, you are not saved!

If our religion does not make us moral, it is a millstone about our necks to destroy us! …The best morality in the world will not prove a man to be a Christian! But if a man has not morality, it proves that he is not a child of God.” – C.H. Spurgeon

The question IS NOT…

Did you raise your hand? or

Did you come to the altar? or

Did you repeat this prayer? Or

Did you get baptized?

THE question is…DID JESUS CHRIST CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

If not, you have absolutely no reason to think you are a Christian.

NONE.

Are you still in the hog pen?

Only Jesus Christ can loose the chains of sin.

I unapologetically stake everything I believe, teach and preach on these facts.

This is from the blog My Dreams and Visions:

I had a dream this morning where I saw eagles flying from the sea over the English countryside and finally perching on Big Ben. What is interesting is that there seemed to be a lead eagle, if you will, looking back to see that the others were following and secondly I saw all this from the vantage point of the eagles.

My Eyesight   6 comments

Yesterday I was sitting in the kitchen and I looked at the calendar to see what day it was.  I had a pleasant surprise:  I could read the small print on the calendar.  A month or two ago, I couldn’t read the small print without my reading glasses.

My friends got their weekly newspaper today and I could read the small print without my reading glasses.*  I am in a state of wonder.

Most of my life I have never needed glasses.  In the family that I was raised in, it seemed like all of the children had to have glasses by high school.  I never did.  Then in 2007, I was hitchhiking through California and this Christian picked me up.  I told him that I had a manuscript on my flash drive and that I could download it onto his computer.  We drove to his office where I proceeded to plug my flash drive into the USB Port—but I couldn’t see the USB Port.  A few months later, I was in Montana and I bought my first pair of reading glasses in Missoula.  After that I would tell people that my physical sight is getting worse, but my spiritual (prophetic) sight is getting better.

My physical sight is improving:  what does this mean?  Could it be that I have better eyesight because there has been a change in my diet in the past few years?  I used to put sugar or honey in my tea, but I stopped doing that four or five years ago because, when I ate too much sugar, I would get charlie horses in my calf muscles.  I am sure that too many Americans consume too much sugar:  the less sugar in your system, the better your system runs.

Or could it be something spiritual?  Is the Lord healing/restoring my eyesight because of my obedience to Him?  My last substantial hitchhiking trip took place the last week of September into the first week of October.  I slept at this motel in Wells, Nevada and the Lord gave me a dream.  I typed it up on my blog The Road and then I posted it on my other blog High Plains Drifter.  A few days ago, I put a link to this dream in a prominent place on the upper left hand corner of The Road so that more people could read it.  I believe that it is an important dream and, putting it on my blog is an act of faith, an act of obedience to the Lord.  I have to respond to what the Lord is revealing to me.

Here is the dream:

Las Vegas Earthquake Imminent?

Dreams from the LORD 2011-2017
30 September 2017

Last night I had a dream where this man walked up to me and gave me a piece of paper.  There was a message on the piece of paper.  The message said:  “see ‘las vegas earthquake’”.

*[Just a week ago, I remember reading the newspaper and I had to use my reading glasses.]

Reality & Doctrine, Obedience & Faith   Leave a comment

This is from the blog Words from the Crucible:

The convenient divorce of reality from doctrine inevitably leads to the abandonment of both; and now what passes for either one of them is merely the imaginations and philosophies of man thinly veiled in biblical terms. But the doctrine of Christ is derivative of His very person; it is the expression not merely of an intellectual framework but rather of the Life of He who desires to be at work in both our thoughts and our actions by His Holy Spirit, that we may walk by such faith which through obedience increasingly lays hold of the reality of knowing Him.

When many don’t get the answers they want, or the answers don’t seem to be coming, they just settle for their own vain notions and move on – as though forgetting that God has anything to do with it (even though they’ll still claim they are being taught by Him.) But the realities of God as expressed in scripture will not be truly seen and walked in without the patient and confident faith which makes decisions and actually does things based upon what is yet unseen – and even as of yet, unconfirmed – except by the Still Small Voice.

God desires to have a people so given over to Christ their Shepherd that when they open the bible, every word they read would not be a far off mystery, but rather an ever clarifying revelation of that in which they have already allowed His Spirit to begin leading them. For a witness is not only one who has heard; but one who has also seen, looked upon and handled the Word of Life, who is Christ Himself, the treasure in these earthen vessels.

“…And we are witnesses to these things, and so is
the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”

(Acts 5:32)

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

…But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
(James 1:5-8, 22)
