Guernica Revisited   4 comments


“Guernica” by Pablo Picasso, 1937

Dreams from the LORD 2011-2018
16 March 2018

Last night I had a dream where I was sitting in the back seat of this car.  My parents were driving the car.  We pulled into the driveway of this big house.  It was my older brother’s house.  His wife was in the front seat of their car.  I walked up to the window and waved at her.  She didn’t wave back.  She had the look of abject misery.  When my dad walked up to the widow, she pulled down this visor so that she could not be seen or bothered.

We walked into the house.  There were many people in the house (my brother and his wife are very social; my parents were very social); they looked like friends and relatives.  My brother saw me and walked up to me and we shook hands.  It seemed like the eyes of all of these people were overlarge and their smiles were too big; it seemed like their facial features were distorted and almost grotesque–similar to a cubist painting like “Guernica” by Picasso.

I did not step into the living room of the house; I stayed in the front entrance–I kept my distance.  For some reason I was wearing these baggy snow pants over my other pants (I felt out of place), so I sat down on this chair and pulled the baggy pants off.

The two things that I remember most about the dream:  there were many people in the house and my brother’s wife was absolutely miserable–she reminded me of Voltaire on his deathbed (two months before Voltaire died, Voltaire KNEW he was going to hell).

Conformed to the WORD   1 comment


This is from the blog Words from the Crucible:

“The perfection of the word going forth from a man is determined by the conformity of the man unto that word. The one who speaks most truly from God speaks from the present ongoing crucible of experience with Him. Not only has he known God by the hearing of the ear; but his eyes have seen the Lord and he has abhorred his own means for the sake of knowing that One. All the words of man’s reasoning are regarded as empty by the wise who fear God. Even if the wise does not yet know the reply of the Lord against another’s teaching, he does not meanwhile give himself unto them, nor does he consult the sayings of the many; but he patiently waits in discretion. This man will the Lord bless liberally with all wisdom and insight, who so asks in humility, despairing to know God’s very Person.”

Every Man on Earth is Sick with the Fever of Sin   3 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?


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


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.

Eagles over England   Leave a comment


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.
