Growth in the Storm   1 comment

This is from the blog A Word in Season:

“And when they were come into the ship,
the wind ceased.”
Matthew 14:32

For the disciple of Christ there is purpose in the storms of life. God’s design for His Own is never random and without intent. Nothing is haphazard or arbitrary. The storm in which the disciples found themselves was intended to enlarge their comprehension of the majesty of Christ.  It was also an opportunity to experience this wonder in their own lives. The main beneficiary of this “lesson” was Peter. Peter had a desire to identify with the living Christ; his heart was not content in seeing Jesus walk upon the water! There was an inherent need within him to walk as Christ walked; to step into the storming seas of life because faith propelled him. True Faith can never find contentment in seeing Jesus only. It will inevitably compel the one in whom it resides to invest in the experiential life of identification with Christ.

The wind will cease, and the storm will become calm once the vital lesson is learned! How glorious is the inspired Word of God: “and when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased”! Let the “they” impact our hearts and stir our souls to greater faith and larger living. When Jesus and Peter step back into the boat, Peter is not the same man he was moments before. His understanding has been transformed by stepping out of his current knowledge of Christ into a larger revelation of the power of Christ.

The storms of life are designed of Him to not simply be endured, but to be the very instruments of our enlargement and growth. While many cling to the “safety” of the boat there are those who see Christ upon the waters and have the passion to walk as He walks, to overcome as He overcomes; to know within that a greater life is available. May the Lord work within us that faith that sees beyond the confines of our experience and propels us to walk outside the scope of human possibility.

“If it be thou, bid me to come”
Matthew 14:28

Jesus has one response to such faith:

“Come…”
Matthew 14:29

Children or Sons?   2 comments

Hebrews 5:13.

This is from the blog A Word in Season:

“Beloved, now are we the sons (Greek: children) of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that, when he shall appear,
we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

And every man that hath this hope in him
purifieth himself, even as he is pure”
1JOHN 3:2 – 3

This powerful, liberating truth of God speaks to all those who by FAITH have been born anew into the family of God; “…we are God’s children NOW”! This is not determined by the feelings or circumstances of life; this is the certainty of God. We are now children of His, whereby we cry “Abba, Father”. To much of Christendom this is as far and as deep as things get. The beginning has become the end; we have manufactured a doctrinal thesis to keep this as the status quo. We read here in First John that there is to be a living hope that beats within our hearts of growing into a full, undimmed expression of HIM in our lives; so that when HE appears we SHALL BE LIKE HIM! This is manifested in the maturation of a growing purity within the hearts of those who know of this living hope.

“And every man that hath this hope in him
purifieth himself, even as he is pure”

While a living hope infuses the passion and pursuit of purity, a doctrinal hope has no power to convey this quest for life. It is simply a belief that lays no claim to our personal lives; a religious concept that robs the WORD of its power and authority (Mark 7:13). There is little or no cost associated with such a “belief” and the adherents of such go through life with very little change. They are children of God, loved of Him, yet bereft of the experience and privilege of growing and developing into the sons of God. In the New Testament the Greek words used to differentiate between these two (children and sons) are distinct*. As a child develops, added responsibilities are given and with these responsibilities the added privileges of life. We do not give a three year old the car keys. God measures out to His own the pounds and the talents according to their “ability” but  we see the withholding of truth to those who are unexercised in the development of true spiritual discernment.

“For every one that useth milk
is unskilful in the word of righteousness:
for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them
that are of full age,
even those who by reason of use
have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil”
HEBREWS 5:13 – 14

And again:

“And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual,
but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat:
for hitherto ye were not able to bear it,
neither yet now are ye able”
1CORINTHIANS 3:1

Strong meat belongs to those who have grown from a child toward that full-aged development by the exercising of their senses to discern “good and evil”. Discernment is developed by growing into a pure heart so that we can see clearly and objectively (1Corinthians 2:15). “Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him” (Malachi 3:18). It is only by us becoming pure in heart that we shall see God and have the ability to discern between good and evil.

“And everyone that has THIS hope in him
purifies himself as he is pure”

The revelation of our hope is verified in a growing purity. That hope is the bridge between what we are now and what we will be when HE appears. All we need to do is to look at the parables of Jesus. They all speak of faith as a living, growing, dynamic filled with HIS very life. The parable of the sower clearly states that the fruitfulness of a life is completely dependent upon the soil of the heart into which the precious seed falls. The seed that fell on the stony ground is the same seed that fell into the soil that brought forth the hundred fold harvest. The only difference is the soil, not the seed.

We need to take responsibility for our growth and development in God. A living hope, burning within the hearts of those who are in full pursuit of purity, is the means of growth from an infant unto maturity.

The heart is the lens through which we see God.

“Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God”
(Matthew 5:8)

*NOTE
Huios (son) at times refers to a legal heir and thus, by implication, an adult. It seems to underscore the character or maturity of the individual. Teknon (child or children) is a more general designation for offspring and contemplates the individual as one who is parented, one who has been born to another. For example, Jesus is never designated as teknon or teknon Theou (gen. of Theos (G2316), God), Son of God, but always ho huios, the Son, the Son of God or the Son of Man

Also:

“The difference between believers as “children of God” and as “sons of God” is brought out in Rom. 8:14-21. The Spirit bears witness with their spirit that they are “children of God,” and, as such, they are His heirs and joint-heirs with Christ. This stresses the fact of their spiritual birth (vv. 16, 17). On the other hand, “as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God,” i.e., “these and no other.” Their conduct gives evidence of the dignity of their relationship and their likeness to His character.” (Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testaments Words, by W.E. Vine)

Exposure of Corruption in USA   1 comment

Falling Dominoes

This is from the blog Richard’s Watch:

Thank you Lord for Veronika West’s posting this morning in tandem with news further confirmation of the exposure of corruption, as in my hunch of May 2016 (Is The Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – next EU??). Interesting that this was concurrent with a Godly version of the domino effect for that month, as seen by Patsy Southway.

Here’s today’s word from Veronika:

AMERICA; A LITTLE BLACK BOOK WILL BE OPENED CAUSING A DOMINO EFFECT; THE SOUND OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE WILL BE HEARD!

IN MY TIME WITH THE LORD THIS MORNING AS I WAS PRAYING FOR THE NATIONS, THE NATION OF AMERICA WAS BROUGHT BEFORE ME AND, AS I BEGAN TO PRAY, SUDDENLY I SAW A NUMBER OF LITTLE BLACK BOOKS STANDING ON END IN A LONG LINE LIKE DOMINOS, AND THEN I SAW THE FINGER OF GOD COME INTO THE MIDST OF THE VISION AND HIS FINGER LIGHTLY TOUCHED THE FIRST LITTLE BLACK BOOK AND I WATCHED AS A POWERFUL DOMINO EFFECT TOOK PLACE.

THEN I HEARD THESE WORDS, “WATCH! AS MY SPIRIT OF TRUTH IS NOW MOVING TO BRING EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE AS THE LITTLE BLACK BOOK IS OPENED, ALL WILL BE UNCOVERED AND REVEALED FOR THE SOUND OF THE GAVEL OF MY JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL BE HEARD GOING FORTH ACROSS THIS LAND”

Veronika West, 7th July 2019

With this word she republishes the following extract from A Warning to the All Nations of the Earth! as received on 8th December 2018:

‘I hear the Spirit of God say, “WATCH AND PRAY FOR THESE ARE THE DAYS OF ELIJAH, THESE ARE THE DAYS OF SUDDEN AND SEVERE SHAKINGS IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, FOR A DIVINE DISMANTLING IS NOW GIVING WAY TO EVEN GREATER DESTRUCTION IN THE NATIONS, BUT FEAR NOT FOR MY RIGHTEOUS ANGER BURNS HOT AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF THE LIVING GOD, WATCH! FOR NOW I AM DOING A NEW THING IN THE MIDST OF YOU, A THING THAT SHALL ASTONISH AND ASTOUND, A THING THAT SHALL CONFUSE AND CONFOUND, A THING THAT IS STRANGE AND MYSTERIOUS, EYES HAVE NOT SEEN AND EARS HAVE NOT HEARD AND MINDS COULD NOT CONCEIVE WHAT I AM ABOUT TO DO IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, NOW WATCH!

“AS THE MOLES ARE DRIVEN OUT OF THEIR HOLES AND THE BLACK SNAKES EMERGE FROM THE DARKNESS OF THEIR CAVES, LISTEN! FOR MANY WILL CRY OUT “THERE IS NOWHERE TO HIDE, THERE IS NO WAY OF ESCAPE”, BUT SURELY I TELL YOU THAT THEIR WORKS OF WICKEDNESS AND THEIR ACTS OF EVIL HAVE COME UP BEFORE ME ONCE AGAIN AS AN ABOMINATION. WATCH AND PAY ATTENTION! FOR THE GAVEL OF MY JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS NOW FALLS UPON THE HEADS OF THE WICKED SENTENCING THEM TO AN ETERNAL SEPARATION, I TELL YOU THE TRUTH I SHALL EVEN FORGET THE DAY THAT I CREATED THEM”, says the Spirit of the Living God.

‘When I received this word today I was physically shaken to my core as the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord came upon me. I began to cry out to the Father to show Mercy for it was shown to me in but a fleeting moment what lay in store for those who have killed the unborn and those who have defied the ways of the Living God in the Nations, and then suddenly I saw into the realm of the Spirit where I saw two Archangels of the Lord, one had the appearance of a pillar of blazing Fire and the other held a sharp sickle in his hand, as I dared to look upon them I saw that they were standing between heaven and hell they were standing READY TO GO INTO THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH!’

This is the comment I left on Richard’s Watch:

[8 July 2019]

Praise the Lord! This word from Veronica West really bears witness with my spirit.

I was hitchhiking in Idaho a a couple of days ago and this guy from Southern California picked me up. He told me about the 6.4 and 7.1 earthquakes near Ridgecrest, California that happened a few days ago. I hadn’t had any access to the news for a few days, so I thought it was Providential that a Californian told me about the earthquakes in California. The 7.1 earthquake was the worst earthquake to hit California in over two decades.

“WATCH AND PRAY FOR THESE ARE THE DAYS OF ELIJAH, THESE ARE THE DAYS OF SUDDEN AND SEVERE SHAKINGS IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, FOR A DIVINE DISMANTLING IS NOW GIVING WAY TO EVEN GREATER DESTRUCTION IN THE NATIONS.”

Last night the Presence of God was very strong as I slept on the floor at my friend’s place in Montana.  This morning, he told me that he had a dream last night about Mount Hood having a volcanic eruption.  Mount Hood is just over 50 miles east of Portland, Oregon.

A Hay Field in Iowa   Leave a comment

Dreams from the LORD 2011-2019
2 July 2019

Last night I had a dream where I was at the Jerry Shey farm in Iowa. I noticed that the gravel around the garage was very rough and had a lot of potholes in it. So I hooked up this grading implement to the small tractor and began to grade the area around the garage. I then drove down the lane north of the house and graded the lane to the highway. I got to the highway and turned around to drive back up the lane. I then noticed around a hundred head of cattle in the hay field and some cattle in the ditch along the highway. So I jumped off the tractor and ran into the ditch to get the cattle out of the ditch and back into the hay field. The cattle weren’t ours; I saw a few of the neighbors running around trying to keep their cattle in the hay field. When we got the cattle back into the hay field, I then noticed that the whole herd of cattle ran to the lane that I had just graded and ran north up the ditch along the highway. We then ran up the ditch to try and get the cattle back in the hay field. Then the dream ended.

This dream reminds me of the phrase “letting the cat out of the bag.” This dream also reminds me of the scripture in Numbers 32:23: “and be sure your sin will find you out.”

Miracle on the Salmon River   2 comments

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Salmon River

This is from the Salmon, Idaho Recorder-Herald newspaper, 27 June 2019.

Dear Editor:

It all started Sunday evening
about 7:30 when I called out to my
wife that I did not feel right, she
came out of the trailer asking what
was wrong, I told her there was
pain in my chest and I felt odd. I
got up took a couple of steps and I
collapsed. Just before blacking out
I remember the forest seemed all
electrified or tingly, all distorted but
very alive!!

The next thing I remember is
seeing sand and asking my wife
what happened. She told me I had
collapsed and I remember seeing
the fear in her eyes. I couldn’t really
talk but I knew I was not ok. She in-
sisted upon getting help, only thing
was there was not anyone else there
except some river rafters whom had
just stopped right below our camp
and were setting up their camp.

The next thing I knew there were
3 guys standing over me and one was
saying, “I am Noah” he was putting
on some kind of machine to my chest
and telling me to breath and look at
him. A very short time passed (I
later learned it was about 5 minutes)
and BAM!! I was hit with the most
powerful shock I have ever felt in
my life and Noah [Hartford] saying “Sorry, I
had to do that, your heart is working
now though.”

It was an AED* that the forest ser-
vice ladies had provided. They did
not know how to use it particularly
but they offered it and Noah being
trained did know; I laid there on the
ground, I remember being moved to
lay on some blankets as they were
trying to get me more comfortable
and it was so cold, I was shivering so
hard and freezing for so long waiting
for an ambulance to come, 70 miles
from Salmon.

All in all I laid there over 2 hours,
and the AED had to hit me two more
times to keep my heart going and
toward the last I remember hearing
battery low, change batteries, over
and over and that was disturbing in
itself, not knowing. Then finally the
ambulance arrived, they switched
AED’s out and put me in the ambu-
lance and away we went, all I can
remember is seeing the roof and a
couple of faces of the people taking
care of me, starting IV’s, etc.

I remember one of the ladies
had motion sickness and I so felt
for her as I know how bad that can
be but she hung in there and never
complained once. What a sacrifice
these volunteers where making to
try to save my life. After another
two hours or so we reached Salmon
and I remember transferring into the
Salmon hospital and the people there
also doing more to try to make me
comfortable, I had extreme pain in
my chest that would not subside no
matter what they tried to do.

After some time had passed there
I was again loaded into the same am-
bulance by the same wonderful peo-
ple to take me to the airport where
another team took over and I was
again transferred to a small plane
to be flown to Missoula where they
were waiting to take me to surgery.
I remember the sound of the plane
pushing it for all it was worth and
again just faces and ceilings.

We finally made it to Missoula
where another ambulance was wait-
ing and again transferred to that and
off to the hospital and whisked away
straight into surgery where they put
in two stents as the left side of my
heart was 100% blocked and was
not working at all. I SHOULDN’T
BE ALIVE! But I am, it was a total
complete and nothing short of a
miracle that this all came together
to save my life.

The fact that we were 70 miles
back in the forest on a winding river
road, no one around but some float-
ers that were not even supposed to be
there, they had planned a completely
different trip until that morning and
found themselves at Corn Creek
when they had originally planned
to be on the Middle Fork.

The fact the forest service did
have an AED on hand and there was
a stranger whom knew how to use
it because he has a young son with
a heart condition and has dedicated
his life to helping others and getting
AED’s into schools, forests, etc.,
the fact there was really only a five
minute window as after my wife had
brought me back to consciousness
and they had gotten the AED hooked
up was about 5 minutes when I had
to be hit with the first shock, and the
fact that the volunteer ambulance
crew gave up their holiday weekend
to get me to surgery is all a part of
this amazing miracle.

I describe this most improbable
occurrence comparable to two atoms
smashing together and capturing the
sun! I want to say I appreciate ALL
OF YOU! I also appreciate another
amazing friend and that is Tim Shey,
High Plains Drifter.
