Arrow Right Power of Prayer >No Matter Which Faith You Follow=GOD is With You

CLEANSING MY MOUTH, EARS AND EYES
by David Wilkerson

Recently, I met a minister I’ve known for a number of years. Every time I had encountered him in the past, I had said to my wife afterward, “That man is so shallow. Such a boastful show-off. I don’t know how God could ever bless him.” Then I met this same man after the Holy Ghost had dealt with me about judging others. This time, the Spirit told me, “Love him. Be quiet and listen to him. Then pray with him.”

I obeyed. I loved the man, listened to him talk, and afterward took his hand and prayed. As soon as we parted ways, a strange thing happened to me: I was stricken with grief. A terror swept over me—the terror of what I’d done to this man over the years. I saw the exceeding sinfulness of my defiling sin.

David exhorts, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer” (Psalm 19:14). The apostle Paul adds this perspective: “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:31-32).

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God” (4:29-30).

Dear saint, not a person reading this message is too holy to heed it and make a change. For my part, I feel God’s grief over all the ways I’ve misjudged people through the years, whether knowingly or unknowingly. I urge you to cry out as my heart does:

“Oh, Lord, why wasn’t I ready to hear this sooner? Why haven’t I dealt with this before now? I want to proclaim Your gospel, declare Your generation. Please, Jesus, forgive me. Cleanse my defiled mouth, my defiled ears, my defiled eyes. And give me a renewed heart. I want nothing to hinder my life from being a full manifestation of who You are.”

May the Lord hear our cry and move quickly to remake us. He will give us strength to put away all evil speaking, evil listening and mental judging. Then we’ll be better able to prolong the days of our Lord.

Default 2 Peter 2:1-22

2Pe 2:1 False prophets appeared in the past among the people, and in the same way false teachers will appear among you. They will bring in destructive, untrue doctrines, and will deny the Master who redeemed them, and so they will bring upon themselves sudden destruction.
2Pe 2:2 Even so, many will follow their immoral ways; and because of what they do, others will speak evil of the Way of truth.
2Pe 2:3 In their greed these false teachers will make a profit out of telling you made-up stories. For a long time now their Judge has been ready, and their Destroyer has been wide awake!
2Pe 2:4 God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell, where they are kept chained in darkness, waiting for the Day of Judgment.
2Pe 2:5 God did not spare the ancient world, but brought the flood on the world of godless people; the only ones he saved were Noah, who preached righteousness, and seven other people.
2Pe 2:6 God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying them with fire, and made them an example of what will happen to the godless.
2Pe 2:7 He rescued Lot, a good man, who was distressed by the immoral conduct of lawless people.
2Pe 2:8 That good man lived among them, and day after day he suffered agony as he saw and heard their evil actions.
2Pe 2:9 And so the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials and how to keep the wicked under punishment for the Day of Judgment,
2Pe 2:10 especially those who follow their filthy bodily lusts and despise God's authority. These false teachers are bold and arrogant, and show no respect for the glorious beings above; instead, they insult them.
2Pe 2:11 Even the angels, who are so much stronger and mightier than these false teachers, do not accuse them with insults in the presence of the Lord.
2Pe 2:12 But these people act by instinct, like wild animals born to be captured and killed; they attack with insults anything they do not understand. They will be destroyed like wild animals,
2Pe 2:13 and they will be paid with suffering for the suffering they have caused. Pleasure for them is to do anything in broad daylight that will satisfy their bodily appetites; they are a shame and a disgrace as they join you in your meals, all the while enjoying their deceitful ways!
2Pe 2:14 They want to look for nothing but the chance to commit adultery; their appetite for sin is never satisfied. They lead weak people into a trap. Their hearts are trained to be greedy. They are under God's curse!
2Pe 2:15 They have left the straight path and have lost their way; they have followed the path taken by Balaam son of Beor, who loved the money he would get for doing wrong
2Pe 2:16 and was rebuked for his sin. His donkey spoke with a human voice and stopped the prophet's insane action.
2Pe 2:17 These people are like dried-up springs, like clouds blown along by a storm; God has reserved a place for them in the deepest darkness.
2Pe 2:18 They make proud and stupid statements, and use immoral bodily lusts to trap those who are just beginning to escape from among people who live in error.
2Pe 2:19 They promise them freedom while they themselves are slaves of destructive habits---for we are slaves of anything that has conquered us.
2Pe 2:20 If people have escaped from the corrupting forces of the world through their knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and then are again caught and conquered by them, such people are in worse condition at the end than they were at the beginning.
2Pe 2:21 It would have been much better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than to know it and then turn away from the sacred command that was given them.
2Pe 2:22 What happened to them shows that the proverbs are true: "A dog goes back to what it has vomited" and "A pig that has been washed goes back to roll in the mud."

United States of America Truth of What’s Going Wrong in The World Today + Loss of Morals

By Lisa Haven



It seems one can hardly watch television anymore without the bombardment of profanity, sexual content, violence, and wizardry of some sort –and that’s just the commercials! Fifty years ago such immoral content would have been considered too scandalous to be aired on live TV! Yet, today, such programs are not only watched, but promoted and encouraged. Where has America gone?

How about out schools? Since 1963, the year prayer was removed, our schools have plummeted morally. High School pregnancies have increased by 200%, school shootings are on a rocketed rise, STD’s in children are up by 230%, condoms are placed in public school restrooms, and immorality is accepted as the norm. Even worse, seventh graders are now being taught how to pray to Muhammad and wage their own holy Jihad, while saying the pledge of allegiance is frowned upon in some schools! Not only that but our elementary children are forced to watch plays that portray homosexuality as a perfectly normal and acceptable lifestyle. Children are taught that parents who object to such teachings in the schools are divisive, intolerant, and bigoted,…you get the idea.

How about our churches? If we look back at the 1940’s and 1950’s church, the top problems were: smoking, dancing, television, makeup and card playing. The problems today, however, are much worse, they are: ordination of sodomites, adultery, divorce, drug abuse, financial scandals, the emergent church, and fallen pastors and evangelists. Not only that but there are many mega churches preaching a one-sided gospel message. If hell doesn’t fit into their doctrine, they remove it and teach their congregants that hell is a fictional place. Other churches are changing the Bible to fit homosexual lifestyles. While others are making God into the God they desire Him to be. They preach only grace and forget that the God we serve will one day judge the world too! God is a God of grace, love, mercy, and forgiveness but he is also a God who will one day judge the world for their lives on earth. The sad part is many churches today fail to teach the full truth of the Bible, and as a result many people are coming to Jesus only for what He can do for them, rather than making a sincere commitment. The second they found out it isn’t only about getting things from Christ, but life sacrifices, they are gone! In truth, they never really knew the true God in the first place. This is one reason we have many false converts today, which have invaded our churches, and sadly, many churches cater to them for financial reason; thus leaving holes in the Gospel of Christ. I believe you get the picture.

“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power… always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5,7

How did our nation end up at the point of moral decay? The answer quite simply, is that it happened slow and steady. Kind of like the analogy of the frog in the kettle. If you stick a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will instantly jump out. However, if you stick that same frog in a pot of lukewarm water and slowly, over time, raise the temperature. Then it will boil to death because it doesn’t realize the waters temperature rising. It just stays in the pot until its utter death! This is what is happening to America, and our politicians are using the frog method to slow boil our freedoms and morality away.

Did you know that according to HSLDA, Michael Farris, “America has moved from a free country to a “Most Free Country?” We have officially gone down the latter! With the IRS scandal, Benghazi, and the monitoring of American citizens phone records, emails, and internet sights, we are now considered mostly free. Wake up America!

But you know, there is no reason to fear, for God tells us in these latter days these things would happen and He forewarned us all. But He doesn’t want us to fear. Fear is of the enemy. After all nothing will separate us from His love…

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword As it is written, “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35-39

My friends, today is the day to contend for the faith like never before! Stand strong in the Lord, stand strong on your moral principles. Don’t be like the world, don’t give into worldly things, but be separated from it. For the world is full of evil and selfish desires and we need not be a part of it.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2:15-16

As believers in the most High God, we need to be on guard, aware, awake, and ready to take on what is coming our way. And how do we do that? But immersing ourselves in Christ! So today I want to encourage you to immerse yourself in Him!!

“Then He [Jesus] called the crowd to Him along with His disciples and said, ‘If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38

Default Pastoral Prayer

Our Dear Heavenly Father;

Move in us. In response to Your great love, Your complete forgiveness, and Your never-ending grace, move in us that we might allow Your Holy Spirit to do what the Apostle Paul urged the disciples in Rome to do - to be transformed into the likeness of our Savior.

Oh Father, we do not need more things, You have reminded us in Your Word that all the world has to offer is nothing but "filthy rags." We do not need more time, we have plenty of time. Instead we must allow You to order our time so that we have our priorities fixed on You and so that we will use our time for Kingdom endeavors. What we need is You and Your Son, our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. We need Your Holy Spirit engaged and active in our lives, guiding and directing our paths.

And Heavenly Father, cause us to listen. Slowing down and waiting on You is hard for us. We don't wait well, so help us to remember that You have proven that Your timing is perfect and Your wisdom is boundless. Cause us to apply the Truths of Your Word to our lives - so that our lives might be filled with Your love, joy, wisdom , peace, trust , commitment and perseverance. Those characteristics are what distinguish us as Yours.

Oh Father, have Your way with us, that we may prove faithful and obedient. It is in Your Son's name Jesus Christ that we pray.

Amen

Default Accepting His Mercy

ACCEPTING HIS MERCY
by David Wilkerson

Jesus gave the parable in Matthew 18:23-35 to show us an example of a trusted, gifted servant who is suddenly revealed to be the chief of all debtors. Here is someone who is undeserving, full of wrong motives, not worthy of compassion at all. Yet his master forgives him freely—just as Jesus did you and me.

Let me say a brief word here about repentance. This concept is often defined as a “turning around.” It speaks of an about-face, a 180-degree turn from one’s previous ways. Also, repentance is said to be accompanied by godly sorrow.

Yet, once again the New Covenant takes an Old Testament concept even further. Repentance is about much more than merely turning away from sins of the flesh—more than sorrowing over the past and being sad for grieving the Lord. According to Jesus’ parable, repentance is about turning away from the mind-sickness that allows us to believe we can somehow make up for our sins.

This sickness afflicts millions of believers. Whenever such Christians fall into sin, they think, “I can make things right with the Lord. I’ll bring Him sincere tears, more earnest prayer, more Bible reading. I’m determined to make it up to Him.” But that is impossible. This kind of thinking leads to one place: hopeless despair. Such people are forever struggling and always failing, and they end up settling for a false peace. They pursue a phony holiness of their own making, convincing themselves of a lie.

Tell me, what saved you? Was it your tears and earnest pleading? Your deep sorrow over grieving God? Your sincere resolve to turn from sin? No, it was none of these things. It was grace alone that saved you. And like the servant in the parable, you didn’t deserve it. In fact, you’re still not worthy of it, no matter how godly your walk is.

Here is a simple formula for true repentance: “I must turn aside, once and for all, every thought that I could ever repay the Lord. I can never work my way into His good graces. Therefore, no effort or good work on my part can wipe out my sin. I simply have to accept His mercy. It’s the only way to salvation and freedom.”

Default The Goodness Of God

THE GOODNESS OF GOD
by David Wilkerson


“Despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering: not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?” (Romans 2:4).

What does Paul mean when he says this person despises the riches of Christ’s goodness? The word for despised here means, “He could not think it possible.” In other words, this believer said, “Such grace and mercy isn’t possible. I can’t fathom it.” It didn’t fit into his theology. So, instead of accepting it, he set his mind against it.

Why couldn’t the ungrateful servant of Matthew 18:23-35 accept the king’s grace? There is one reason: he didn’t take seriously the enormity of his sin. Yet, the king had already told him, “You’re free. There’s no more guilt, no more claim upon you, no probation or works required. All you need to do now is focus on the goodness and forbearance I’ve shown to you.”

Tragically, a person who doesn’t accept love is not capable of loving anyone else. Instead, he becomes judgmental toward others. That’s what happened to this servant. He missed the whole point of the king’s mercy to him. You see, God’s forbearance and unmerited forgiveness are meant for one thing: to lead us to repentance. Paul asks, “Don’t you realize that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?”

It’s clear from the parable that this is the reason the master forgave his servant. He wanted this trusted man to turn away from his own works of flesh to rest in the king’s incredible goodness. Such rest would free him to love and forgive others in return. But instead of repenting, the servant went away doubting his master’s goodness. He determined to have a contingency plan. And despising the king’s mercy, he treated others with judgment.

Can you imagine the tortured mind of such a person? This man left a sacred place of forgiveness, where he experienced his master’s goodness and grace. But instead of rejoicing, he despised the thought of such unmitigated freedom. I tell you, any believer who thinks God’s goodness is impossible opens himself to every lie of Satan. His soul has no rest. His mind is in constant turmoil. And he’s continually fearful of judgment.

I wonder how many Christians today live this tortured existence. Is that why there is so much strife, so many divisions in the Body of Christ? Is it why so many ministers are at odds, why so many denominations refuse to fellowship with each other?

Default Jude 1:3-25

Jud 1:3 My dear friends, I was doing my best to write to you about the salvation we share in common, when I felt the need of writing at once to encourage you to fight on for the faith which once and for all God has given to his people.
Jud 1:4 For some godless people have slipped in unnoticed among us, persons who distort the message about the grace of our God in order to excuse their immoral ways, and who reject Jesus Christ, our only Master and Lord. Long ago the Scriptures predicted the condemnation they have received.
Jud 1:5 For even though you know all this, I want to remind you of how the Lord once rescued the people of Israel from Egypt, but afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
Jud 1:6 Remember the angels who did not stay within the limits of their proper authority, but abandoned their own dwelling place: they are bound with eternal chains in the darkness below, where God is keeping them for that great Day on which they will be condemned.
Jud 1:7 Remember Sodom and Gomorrah, and the nearby towns, whose people acted as those angels did and indulged in sexual immorality and perversion: they suffer the punishment of eternal fire as a plain warning to all.
Jud 1:8 In the same way also, these people have visions which make them sin against their own bodies; they despise God's authority and insult the glorious beings above.
Jud 1:9 Not even the chief angel Michael did this. In his quarrel with the Devil, when they argued about who would have the body of Moses, Michael did not dare condemn the Devil with insulting words, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"
Jud 1:10 But these people attack with insults anything they do not understand; and those things that they know by instinct, like wild animals, are the very things that destroy them.
Jud 1:11 How terrible for them! They have followed the way that Cain took. For the sake of money they have given themselves over to the error that Balaam committed. They have rebelled as Korah rebelled, and like him they are destroyed.
Jud 1:12 With their shameless carousing they are like dirty spots in your fellowship meals. They take care only of themselves. They are like clouds carried along by the wind, but bringing no rain. They are like trees that bear no fruit, even in autumn, trees that have been pulled up by the roots and are completely dead.
Jud 1:13 They are like wild waves of the sea, with their shameful deeds showing up like foam. They are like wandering stars, for whom God has reserved a place forever in the deepest darkness.
Jud 1:14 It was Enoch, the seventh direct descendant from Adam, who long ago prophesied this about them: "The Lord will come with many thousands of his holy angels
Jud 1:15 to bring judgment on all, to condemn them all for the godless deeds they have performed and for all the terrible words that godless sinners have spoken against him!"
Jud 1:16 These people are always grumbling and blaming others; they follow their own evil desires; they brag about themselves and flatter others in order to get their own way.
Jud 1:17 But remember, my friends, what you were told in the past by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jud 1:18 They said to you, "When the last days come, people will appear who will make fun of you, people who follow their own godless desires."
Jud 1:19 These are the people who cause divisions, who are controlled by their natural desires, who do not have the Spirit.
Jud 1:20 But you, my friends, keep on building yourselves up on your most sacred faith. Pray in the power of the Holy Spirit,
Jud 1:21 and keep yourselves in the love of God, as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ in his mercy to give you eternal life.
Jud 1:22 Show mercy toward those who have doubts;
Jud 1:23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; and to others show mercy mixed with fear, but hate their very clothes, stained by their sinful lusts.
Jud 1:24 To him who is able to keep you from falling and to bring you faultless and joyful before his glorious presence---
Jud 1:25 to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, might, and authority, from all ages past, and now, and forever and ever! Amen

United States of America Happy Thanksgiving To All

And I mean to all, all over whether it be your holiday or not we have much to be thankful for........

Psa 100:1 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Psa 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Psa 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Psa 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Psa 100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

1 O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain;
for purple mountain majesties
above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
and crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea.

2 O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul
In self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

3 O beautiful for heroes proved
in liberating strife,
who more than self their country loved,
and mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine,
till all success be nobleness,
and every gain divine.

4 O beautiful for patriot dream
that sees beyond the years
thine alabaster cities gleam,
undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God mend thine every flaw,
confirm thy soul in self-control,
thy liberty in law.

Default Prayer Time

Our Dear Heavenly Father;


In a world where it seems that evil is rising and devotion and obedience to You is waning , help us to remember that You are God - the Creator of this world and the whole universe; the Sustainer of this world and all that is contained therein ; no one can or will obstruct or frustrate Your will and plan for us.

0 Heavenly Father, it seems as though Satan's influence is rising and he is having his way. In times like these, help us to claim and believe the promise that You gave us through King David:
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom , and Your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is trustworthy in all He promises and faithful in all He does.


But Father, it begins with us Your children. Help us to totally surrender to You and Your Son, our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Cause us to live our lives in faith and trust and devotion to You and Your commands and teachings. Let our lives be shining examples of Your love and mercy and grace. May our lives be so captivating to others , that they will want to know You and Your Son as we do and may they be compelled to live for You as we do.

O Father, even though we completely trust in You , sometimes we let our emotions and weaknesses influence us and we give in to sin. Forgive us Father through the sacrifice of Your Son on the Cross. Help us to accept Your forgiveness and to rely on You for our continued strength as we live for You.

We pray this all in His precious name. Amen

Default God's Daily Faithfulness

GOD’S DAILY FAITHFULNESS
by David Wilkerson



Right now, your life may seem like a boat in the midst of a raging storm, your situation beyond all hope. The storm swirling around you may be as frightening as any you’ve ever faced. But He is still God, and you have One greater than Solomon present with you. He is Master over every storm, and He’ll use that storm to test you. He’s allowing your crisis to see what’s in your heart.

You may think, “But what if my ship actually sinks? What then?” Consider Paul’s example in the book of Acts. His ship sank but he didn’t lose his life. In fact, he clung to God’s Word to him in the midst of that storm: “The ship will go down, but I will give you the lives of everyone on board.” When the storm ended, God was glorified for his faithfulness. And great miracles followed, accompanied by an awesome revival (see Acts 28:1-10).

Yes, the Lord may allow you to endure something that looks absolutely disastrous. But you will survive—and so will your faith—if you trust Him. Your ship may go down, but God will give you the strength to swim ashore, as He did Paul. All you can lose is that which is material, and God can easily replace that. He owns bigger, better boats, and He’s able to bless you with more than anything you may have lost. “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” (Psalm 55:22)

I have to admit, as I read Jesus’ rebuke to the disciples, I think, “Lord, that’s not fair. I receive letters from people today who are facing their own terrible disasters. They’re losing their homes, their jobs, their loved ones. Surely You don’t expect them to remain full of faith.”

Then the Holy Spirit reminds me of some of the poverty-stricken areas I’ve visited. I’ve seen people living in shacks and sleeping on dirt floors, yet they have a joy I’ve never witnessed anywhere else. They rejoice in God’s daily faithfulness to them, and He causes their faith to abound, despite all their trials.

Default Walk In The Light

WALK IN THE LIGHT
by David Wilkerson

We’re told that Christ is the light of the world “that all men through him might believe” (John 1:7). Yet, we then read, “The light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. . . . He came unto his own, and his own received him not” (1:5, 11).

Unbelief has always grieved the heart of Jesus. When our Lord came to earth in the flesh, He brought incredible light into the world. And that light was meant to open the eyes of men. Yet, in spite of Jesus’ amazing show of light, Scripture speaks of incredible examples of unbelief in the very face of such light.

Perhaps no other chapter in the Bible contains as much proof of Jesus’ deity as we see in John 12. We see a man who had been raised from the dead by Jesus’ command. We see the visual fulfillment of a centuries-old prophecy known to every Israelite. And we hear a literal voice speaking from heaven.

Even after witnessing these wonders, the people had the audacity to question Jesus. “The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up?” (12:34). They were saying, “You claim You’re going to be crucified. But we know the true Messiah is going to live forever.”

Then the people asked a question that absolutely stunned Jesus: “Who is this Son of man?” (12:34). Christ must have been incredulous at their blindness. In fact, He didn’t even attempt to answer the question. Instead, He warned, “Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you. . . . While ye have light, believe in the light” (12:35-36).

The light had shone into their darkness but their darkened minds didn’t comprehend it (see 1:12). The Greek word for comprehend means “to seize it, to lay hold of it, to possess the truth, producing life and power.” These people had been given a life-changing truth but they didn’t seize it or lay hold of it. They didn’t understand the truth of Christ, because they did not seek to possess it.

“These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them” (12:36). In this one verse, we find God’s attitude toward unbelief. Indeed, from cover to cover in the Bible, God never has sympathy or pity for unbelief. And the same is true in this scene. Jesus simply walked away from the unbelieving crowds. As a result, those people would leave Jerusalem in darkness because they didn’t walk in the light they’d been given.


Believe and let Jesus' light shine.....

Default The Lord Promises To Restore

THE LORD PROMISES TO RESTORE
by David Wilkerson

It’s true that King David paid severe consequences for his sin; in fact, he prophesied judgment upon himself. He told the prophet Nathan that the rich man who stole the poor man’s lamb should restore it fourfold (see 2 Samuel 12:5-6). And that’s just what happened in David’s life: The baby that Bathsheba birthed died within days. And three of David’s other sons—Ammon, Absalom and Adonijah—all had tragic, untimely deaths. So, David did pay for his sin with four of his own lambs.

Yet the Bible clearly shows that whenever we return to the Lord in genuine, heartfelt repentance, God responds by bringing absolute reconciliation and restoration. We do not have to end up like Saul, descending into madness and terror. Nor do we have to “fade away” from life, biding our time in quiet shame until the Lord takes us home. On the contrary, the prophet Joel assures us that God steps in immediately when we return to him: “Rend your heart . . . and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil” (Joel 2:13).

Amazingly, God then gives us this incredible promise: “I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten. . . . And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed” (Joel 2:25–26). The Lord promises to restore all.

Understand, when this prophecy was given, God had already pronounced judgment on Israel. But the people repented, and God said, “Now I’m going to do wonderful things for you. I’m going to restore everything the devil has stolen.”

Beloved, God’s tender mercy allows even the worst sinner to say, “I’m not a drug addict. I’m not an alcoholic. I’m not an adulterer. I am a child of the living God, with all the rights of heaven in my soul. I no longer live under condemnation, because my past is fully behind me. And I don’t have to pay for any past sins, because Jesus paid the price for me. What’s more, He said He’ll restore everything to me.”

Default The Everlasting Arms

THE EVERLASTING ARMS
by Claude Houde
God will never refuse a sincere heart that comes back to Him to rebuild an area of his spiritual life that has been broken down! I want to share a promise with you. Believe it. Meditate on it. Hold it tight and oh-so-close to your heart. Promises are love letters from God, destined for you, written with you in mind on the pages of His faithfulness with the ink of His blood offered for you.

“There is none like our God who rides the heaven to help you and in His excellency on the clouds. The eternal God is your refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deuteronomy 33:26-27).

When you have made your worst mistakes and the storms of life are raging; when you are so ashamed of yourself you want to disappear; when you have fallen so low and you look down, underneath it all you will always find the everlasting arms. When you give up on yourself and your closest friends can’t believe what you’ve done; when everyone has left you and you can’t even look up, underneath the entire mess you will find His everlasting arms. When it takes everything you have just to pick up the first and smallest stone to rebuild your altar, and your attempt at a comeback with God and His calling on your life seems so futile, ridiculous and really hopeless, you will always hear His voice speak these words to you and for you, “A bruised reed He will not throw away and a smoking flax He will not quench. He will not fail, nor be discouraged till He has established His kingdom.” (Isa 42:3-4).

When our faith is strong and our altar is straight, and we are standing tall before God with all the passion of our commitment, and with our eyes looking high to the heaven, at such times it is not hard to believe that His arms can carry us. We experience moments of grace and amazing answers to prayer, and His presence is so near and so real. We accomplish exploits that surprise us and fill us with wonder and passionate worship. His face is so near we feel we could just touch Him; His word is sweet and moves us.

Default Happy the Home

Happy the Home When God Is There

1. Happy the home when God is there,
And love fills every breast;
When one their wish, and one their prayer,
And one their heav’nly rest.

2. Happy the home where Jesus’ name
Is sweet to every ear;
Where children early speak His fame,
And parents hold Him dear.

3. Happy the home where prayer is heard,
And praise is wont to rise;
Where parents love the sacred Word
And all its wisdom prize.

4. Lord, let us in our homes agree
This blessed peace to gain;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee,
And love to all will reign.

Col 3:13 Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else. You must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you.
Col 3:14 And to all these qualities add love, which binds all things together in perfect unity.
Col 3:15 The peace that Christ gives is to guide you in the decisions you make; for it is to this peace that God has called you together in the one body. And be thankful.
Col 3:16 Christ's message in all its richness must live in your hearts. Teach and instruct one another with all wisdom. Sing psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing to God with thanksgiving in your hearts.
Col 3:17 Everything you do or say, then, should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks through him to God the Father.
Col 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, for that is what you should do as Christians.

Col 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.
Col 3:24 Remember that the Lord will give you as a reward what he has kept for his people. For Christ is the real Master you serve.
Col 3:25 And all wrongdoers will be repaid for the wrong things they do, because God judges everyone by the same standard.

Default Not Of This World

NOT OF THIS WORLD
by David Wilkerson

Jesus said, “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (John 15:18-19).

These verses strike at the very heart of why we are hated. When we were saved, we got “out of the world.” And we accepted our mission to insist that others also “get out of the world.”

“I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world” (John 17:14).

“Ye are not of the world . . . therefore [because of this], the world hateth you” (John 15:19). Christ is saying, in essence, “The world hates you because I called you out of your condition. And that means I called you out of their fellowship. Yet, I didn’t just call you out. I then sent you to call everyone else out.”

The Protestant antichrist spirit works to hinder this separation of Christians from the world. It makes it seem possible for believers to stay in the world and still regard themselves as Christians.

You may ask, “What exactly does Jesus mean when he says ‘the world’?”

He isn’t just speaking of ungodly lusts, pleasure madness, pornography or adultery. No, “the world” Christ refers to isn’t some list of evil practices. That’s only a part of it.

“The world” that Jesus speaks of is an unwillingness to surrender to His lordship. In short, worldliness is any attempt to co-mingle Christ with self-will.

You see, when we surrender to the lordship of Christ, we cleave to Jesus. And we’re led by the Holy Spirit, step by step, into a walk of purity and uprightness. We begin to appreciate godly reproof.

Default Facing The Demands Of The Cross

FACING THE DEMANDS OF THE CROSS
by David Wilkerson | January 1, 2016

Nobody can come under Christ’s lordship until he faces the demands of the cross of Calvary.

I realize this truth every time I stand up to preach. Each week as I gaze out from the pulpit into our congregation, scattered among the faithful believers I face nonbelievers who’ve walked in for the first time. Some are successful, self-made, hard-driving businesspeople. Others come from all kinds of walks of life. Yet all are laden down with secret sins. These people are living as they please, not under any spiritual authority, but they’re empty and disillusioned. They’ve become sick of pursuing pleasures that never satisfy.

I could preach all kinds of sermons about principles and rules of behavior, or how to cope with stress, or how to deal with fear and guilt. But none of this kind of preaching gets anyone “out of the world.” It doesn’t change anybody’s heart.

I simply have to tell the nonbeliever that his self-will, self-reliance and stubborn struggle to do everything his way will destroy him. And, in the end, it will bring him everlasting torment.

If I don’t give him this message, then I have forever shut up the heavens to him. And I have made him a twofold member of hell. His condition will be worse than before he came through our doors.

I have to bring that man face to face with the message of being crucified to his independence. I have to show him that he must come out of his deluded world of self-goodness. I have to tell him there’s no way to peace in this life except through full surrender to King Jesus.

Otherwise, I have deceived this man. And I’ve committed the horrible sin of the worst kind of pride: I have counted him as a “convert” to make myself look good. May it never be!

As a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I am obligated to speak His truth to everyone who truly repents: “All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

Default Ephesians 1:3-14

Eph 1:3 Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! For in our union with Christ he has blessed us by giving us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world.
Eph 1:4 Even before the world was made, God had already chosen us to be his through our union with Christ, so that we would be holy and without fault before him. Because of his love
Eph 1:5 God had already decided that through Jesus Christ he would make us his children---this was his pleasure and purpose.
Eph 1:6 Let us praise God for his glorious grace, for the free gift he gave us in his dear Son!
Eph 1:7 For by the blood of Christ we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven. How great is the grace of God,
Eph 1:8 which he gave to us in such large measure! In all his wisdom and insight
Eph 1:9 God did what he had purposed, and made known to us the secret plan he had already decided to complete by means of Christ.
Eph 1:10 This plan, which God will complete when the time is right, is to bring all creation together, everything in heaven and on earth, with Christ as head.
Eph 1:11 All things are done according to God's plan and decision; and God chose us to be his own people in union with Christ because of his own purpose, based on what he had decided from the very beginning.
Eph 1:12 Let us, then, who were the first to hope in Christ, praise God's glory!
Eph 1:13 And you also became God's people when you heard the true message, the Good News that brought you salvation. You believed in Christ, and God put his stamp of ownership on you by giving you the Holy Spirit he had promised.
Eph 1:14 The Spirit is the guarantee that we shall receive what God has promised his people, and this assures us that God will give complete freedom to those who are his. Let us praise his glory!

Default God Has Not Once Failed

No matter how bad I feel at times having MS,(aches, pains, fatigue, muscle spasms, etc. and just plain getting older...LOL) I can always look around and see someone in worse condition. God truly has blessed me in my life and continues to bless me.

GOD HAS NOT ONCE FAILED
by David Wilkerson

Paul shows us God’s specific purpose in our deeply trying, dark times: “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

“For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And our hope of you is steadfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation” (2 Corinthians 1:3–7).

Do you see God’s purpose here? In the midst of our afflictions, the Spirit comforts us. And in turn, we’re able to bring comfort to others who suffer deep afflictions. This is the Spirit’s work: to bring comfort to His people through voices that have been tested. Therefore, we can know that as our own suffering grows worse, the comfort of the Lord becomes even mightier within us.

There are two dear brothers on our ministry’s mailing list named Israel and Jesse. Israel is 100 years old and Jesse is 102. One quit working at 92, the other at 97. They each love the Lord and have been receiving my messages for years.

These men are not only natural brothers but truly are “brothers in the Lord.” Both testify that out of a lifetime of great trials, the joy of the Spirit has deepened in them. They’ve witnessed terrible disasters for an entire century—the Great Depression, two World Wars, terrible droughts—and they’ve suffered personally throughout their long lives. Yet, at their advanced years, these men are able to smile and proclaim more confidently than ever, “Through it all, God has not once failed.” Their testimony after having “seen it all” is a Holy Ghost comfort to the rest of us.

Default The Harvest Is Ready

THE HARVEST IS READY
by David Wilkerson


Jesus gives us a picture of what the last days will look like. This last-days picture began at His ascension and it will end only when He comes again—and we are getting very close to that point now!

Jesus’ disciples wanted to know the condition of things as the last days approach and He answered by speaking of famines, earthquakes, tribulations, nations divided. False prophets and false Christs will deceive many and lead multitudes astray. Believers will be hated for even mentioning Christ’s name. And the love of many will grow cold, with some falling away because of the bold increase of sin and lawlessness.

“Upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25–26). In short, Jesus is describing the most anxious, depressed, stressed-out generation of all time.

So, are His prophecies happening now, right before our eyes? Think about it. This generation definitely is full of anxiety and worry. Multitudes are fearful as they watch incredible disasters unfold: hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, mudslides, tornados. Entire nations tremble with fear over the threat of terrorism. And heart failure is the number-one killer in the world today.

False religions, false prophets, false Christs are leading many astray. Millions are turning to Islam, with nation after nation infiltrated by Islamics. You would have to be in total denial if you didn’t see that everything that can be shaken right now is being shaken.

In the midst of all this upheaval and turmoil, I hear Jesus’ words: “The fields are white. The harvest is plentiful” (see John 4:35). I’m convinced that He is telling His Church, “People are ready to hear. This is the time to believe for a harvest. Now is the time for you to start reaping.”

Christ is the Lord of the harvest and if He declares that the harvest is ready, we must believe it. It doesn’t matter how wicked this generation becomes. It doesn’t matter how powerful Satan seems to have grown. Our Lord is saying to us, “Stop focusing on the difficulties around you. Instead, raise up your eyes. It’s time for you to see that the harvest is ready.”

I hear people say "well these things have been going on for many, many years" which is true. The difference in then and now is that all of these things haven't happened all at the same time as they are now. The birth pangs are getting much stronger and getting much closer together. By no means have we seen the worst which is yet soon to come. We must repent and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior; now is the time.

Default Time For The Harvest

TIME FOR THE HARVEST
David Wilkerson


When Moses told Pharaoh, “Let my people go,” it was because God had announced the time for harvest. The moment had come for Israel’s deliverance from captivity!

But Pharaoh responded, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go” (Exodus 5:2). Pharaoh represents Satan’s demonic system, including false religions and oppression that hold people under bondage.

Before Israel could be delivered, the powers of darkness had to be shaken. So God struck Egypt with nine natural calamities. Yet those nine disasters only hardened Pharaoh’s heart.

Finally, there came a calamity so devastating that everyone in Egypt—from the rulers down to ordinary citizens—knew this wasn’t just nature out of control. It was God speaking. The Lord had sent an angel of death, and in one night the eldest son in every Egyptian family died, including Pharaoh’s son. The very next day, Israel paraded out of Egypt. Here was the harvest that came just before judgment.

Centuries later, when Jesus announced the ripe harvest in Jerusalem, He knew judgment was about to come. Years hence, Titus and his army would invade the city, and 1.2 million people would be killed. Many would be hung on crosses, and the city itself would be burned to the ground.

This is why Jesus warned His generation, “You say there are four months before harvest. But I’m telling you, the harvest has to begin now. You have to be about the will of God, because the greatest calamity is at your door. I’m commissioning you now to finish My work. The time to start reaping is today.”

How did Jesus describe the calamity that was to come? “Then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21). Yet, before that calamity came, it would be time for the harvest.

We used to have something similar years ago Tarfoot...

Sadly 1 of our 'Prospective Donators', who maybe was a SPY, reported us to PAYPAL...WHO insisted we remove our DONATE BUTTON.. and PAYPAL kept all the few donations, since 2011 to 2013 of $242..

I continue to fight them, but every time I have called them over the years, (at my personal expense - I do not live in the US, thus cannot use their FREEPHONE TEL No) , over the years... PAYPAL have found another excuse not to refund that $242...

It is for me is NOT the monetary amount, it is simply a matter of principal for those good members that tried to donate all those $$$$ years ago..

MY CALLs, time/fight will continue even though this site is BROKE..

Thanks for your suggestion...

Beating Heart 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1Co 13:1 I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell.
1Co 13:2 I may have the gift of inspired preaching; I may have all knowledge and understand all secrets; I may have all the faith needed to move mountains---but if I have no love, I am nothing.
1Co 13:3 I may give away everything I have, and even give up my body to be burned ---but if I have no love, this does me no good.
1Co 13:4 Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud;
1Co 13:5 love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs;
1Co 13:6 love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth.
1Co 13:7 Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.
1Co 13:8 Love is eternal. There are inspired messages, but they are temporary; there are gifts of speaking in strange tongues, but they will cease; there is knowledge, but it will pass.
1Co 13:9 For our gifts of knowledge and of inspired messages are only partial;
1Co 13:10 but when what is perfect comes, then what is partial will disappear.
1Co 13:11 When I was a child, my speech, feelings, and thinking were all those of a child; now that I am an adult, I have no more use for childish ways.
1Co 13:12 What we see now is like a dim image in a mirror; then we shall see face-to-face. What I know now is only partial; then it will be complete---as complete as God's knowledge of me.
1Co 13:13 Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope, and love; and the greatest of these is love.

United States of America The Biggest Treasonous Plot In the History of the USA

The Biggest Treasonous Plot In the History of the USA

Make no mistake about it, this article is about treason.
Most of my readers and listeners need no introduction as to the rampant corruption of Obama and Clinton and the entire Obama administrative apparatus. However, when you are dealing with a general public, who has been so dumbed down, it is sometimes necessary to dumb down the presentation to such a degree that even a first-grader could be made to understand the extent of the treason being perpetrated against the American people by the Obama administration, particularly Obama and Clinton. Subsequently, I have constructed a first grade reader analogous to the old “Fun With Dick and Jane“.
Have you ever wondered how you could explain the Oregon controversy to your unaware and ignorant relatives, friends and co-workers”? I have the solution to your dilemma. “Kiss” is an acronym which frequently associated with the phrase “Keep It Simple Stupid”.
When explaining the state of affairs to the Fox-News crowd, simplicity is your best friend.

Therefore, The Common Sense Show is pleased to present:
FUN WITH BARACK AND HILLARY

Fun with Barack and Hillary, the newest Common Core addition.


HEY BILL, WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME “THE FIRST GENTLEMEN” COMPLETE WITH ALL THE WHITE HOUSE PERKS SUCH AS UNLIMITED ACCESS TO 18 YEAR OLD WHITE HOUSE PAGES? WELL, HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF URANIUM ONE?


With Uranium One, we can steal lots of uranium from rancher lands with the help of our friends in the BLM…..

And we can sell it to our friends the Russians…… “Our friends, the globalists, will be pleased because we are helping them to get what they want too.”

American Ranchers fate is spelled out in this map.

Where is all this going, boys and girls?


See Hillary Run. Run Hillary run!

BOYS AND GIRLS, BELOW IS THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS WITH THE RUSSIANS AFTER WE ELECT HILLARY FROM HER ILL-GOTTEN GAINS.

The result of Hillary Clinton’s handiwork, more Russian nuclear weapons pointed at American cities.

HEY BARACK AND HILLARY READERS, CAN YOU FIND YOUR SOON-TO-BE DESTROYED AMERICAN CITY?


SOMETIMES, BOYS AND GIRLS, COLLATERAL DAMAGE MUST HAPPEN SO BARACK AND HILLARY CAN KEEP HAVING FUN. TODAY, WE HAVE A NEW COMMON CORE VOCABULARY WORD FOR ALL STUDENTS AND IT IS CALLED “COLLATERAL DAMAGE”.

Here is another phrase, boys and girls, that you need to remember. “The ends justifies the means”.

PLEASE SHARE “FUN WITH BARACK AND HILLARY” WITH ALL OF YOUR FOX NEWS-WATCHING SHEEP

“All students should be proud to be trading liberty for pseudo-security”.


It will not be long until the sheep revert back to their old viewing habits.
“Please tell me what to think”.

To the Awake and the Aware

In April of 2015, I noted that the New York Times reported that a Russian front company, Uranium One, operating out of Canada, was a beneficiary of the BLM’s land grabs from ranchers and farmers in the American West. In the New York Times story, the undeniable fact was established that Hillary Clinton was a major participant in this plot to sell the stolen uranium to the Russians. Do I have to spell it out for you. Hillary Clinton was a major participant in selling the Russians uranium which could be turned into nuclear bombs to use against the United States.
I subsequently wrote another article where I compared Hillary Clinton to the infamous Ethel Rosenburg and demonstrated, in the article, how Clinton’s actions were even more egregious that Rosenburg’s because Rosenburg was convicted of selling nuclear “know-how” while this major mainstream media outlet was convinced that Clinton was directly involved and was a beneficiary of the sale nuclear grade weapons uranium to our enemy. In return, Uranium One’s payoffs to Clinton, in one way or another, ended up helping to fund her 2016 presidential campaign. Interestingly, as Ethel Rosenburg was executed for her treason, Hillary Clinton finds herself more financially enriched as a result of her blatant treason.
As I took a greater interest in the Russian’s involvement in Clinton’s run for the Presidency, the Russians took a greater interest in my website according to my analytics. As I have begun to give this treasonous event the attention that it deserves, the number of Russian-based hits on my website have increased over 1,000% on a daily basis. Katy Whelan, the health reporter for The Common Sense Show, is receiving a similar spike from the Russians during this same time frame on her personal website.

Default Psalms 19:1-14

Psa 19:1 How clearly the sky reveals God's glory! How plainly it shows what he has done!
Psa 19:2 Each day announces it to the following day; each night repeats it to the next.
Psa 19:3 No speech or words are used, no sound is heard;
Psa 19:4 yet their message goes out to all the world and is heard to the ends of the earth. God made a home in the sky for the sun;
Psa 19:5 it comes out in the morning like a happy bridegroom, like an athlete eager to run a race.
Psa 19:6 It starts at one end of the sky and goes across to the other. Nothing can hide from its heat.
Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect; it gives new strength. The commands of the LORD are trustworthy, giving wisdom to those who lack it.
Psa 19:8 The laws of the LORD are right, and those who obey them are happy. The commands of the LORD are just and give understanding to the mind.
Psa 19:9 Reverence for the LORD is good; it will continue forever. The judgments of the LORD are just; they are always fair.
Psa 19:10 They are more desirable than the finest gold; they are sweeter than the purest honey.
Psa 19:11 They give knowledge to me, your servant; I am rewarded for obeying them.
Psa 19:12 None of us can see our own errors; deliver me, LORD, from hidden faults!
Psa 19:13 Keep me safe, also, from willful sins; don't let them rule over me. Then I shall be perfect and free from the evil of sin.
Psa 19:14 May my words and my thoughts be acceptable to you, O LORD, my refuge and my redeemer!

Great suggestion tarfoot but I doubt this is an easy fix. I sense your frustration and share it too. If only just 10% of members donated a single US Dollar once every year then this would be an immense help to ease the costs of running this ace forum.

Sadly though the harsh reality is that too many people think something like this is free. They are wrong on so many levels. Staff spend hours each day checking the forum and moving posts or deleting dead posts plus a host of other tasks assigned.

Take care and be safe always my friend.

You are correct, it is not an easy fix....and would take a tech Admin to spend a lot of time to do it, our webmaster simply does not have the time as he is very busy with his work...

Members have no idea just what goes on behind the scenes, to keep this site going and as good as it is.

Thanks for all the help you give me shadowwar, and for your post...

Default Needy Children

NEEDY CHILDREN
Gary Wilkerson


Christ often begins His ministry to us as if we are children with needs to be met. This happened throughout the gospels as He restored the blind man’s sight, healed the bleeding woman, and fed the hungry crowds. He met suffering people right where they were and gave them just what they needed. This was reason enough for people to follow Him. Even some of the Pharisees followed Christ because of His miracles.

I personally was convinced to follow Jesus after He met my deepest need. As a teenager I became uncertain whether God was real. I had descended from a long line of ministers, so how could I be sure that my faith wasn’t just indoctrination from my parents? Jesus came to me in my hurting soul and showed me what I needed to know: that Buddha didn’t love me, nor did Mohammed or Confucius—but Jesus did. He revealed to me the pure truth of His love—and it turned my life around.

Jesus does bless us in our time of need. But, you see, that’s only His starting place in our lives. He takes us from blessedness to brokenness because it’s the only way to bring us to real maturity. The broken path is how we begin to take on His giving nature.

Let’s face it, our flesh hates the thought of a giving life because it requires brokenness. Think about all those bestsellers whose titles imply blessings. Now imagine a different title on the shelves, this one called The Giving Life. You think, “I want to be a giver,” so you flip through the pages. You read of Paul, who speaks of being shipwrecked, beaten and stoned because he was called to give. You read of the other apostles who were persecuted because Jesus called them to a giving life. As you read along you soon realize, “This is not going to be a bestseller.”

That much was proven in Jesus’ day. The crowds stopped following Him when He began preaching difficult truths (see John 6). When the people turned for the exits, “Jesus said to the Twelve, ‘Do you want to go away as well?’ Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God’” (John 6:67-69).

Jesus’ question puts us in the same position as the disciples. We have to trust that He is good and faithful. You see, we don't get to choose the agenda for our lives. If we did, we would all be getters, not givers. That’s why Jesus sets the agenda. And when He leads us down a hard path, we can be sure He does so in love.

United States of America Judgement On America?

JUDGMENT ON AMERICA?
David Wilkerson


Many believers today are asking, “Why hasn’t God turned America over to judgment? Why hasn’t He dealt with us according to our sins? He gave Noah’s generation 120 years of warnings, but after that He said, ‘Enough,’ and brought a flood. God has suffered America’s sins for a long time now, so why haven’t we seen His righteous judgment on us?”

I love this country, and I for one don’t want to see God’s final judgment come upon America. Like many, I am completely amazed at why God’s judgment has been delayed.

I do believe we are seeing the beginnings of judgment. I see the terrible calamities taking place in the world as warnings. Yet, because America’s economy hasn’t collapsed, and our nation is still able to function as it has, we seem to stumble along from crisis to crisis, being given chance after chance.

I’m convinced there is only one answer to this perplexity: it’s all because of the tenderness and longsuffering of our Savior. We find the proof in Isaiah’s prophecy: “A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench” (Isaiah 42:3). America has become a nation of bruised reeds!

A reed is a tall stalk or plant with a hollow stem, usually found in marshy areas or near a supply of water. It’s a tender plant, so it bends easily when high winds or swift waters strike. Yet the reed can bend only so far before it finally breaks and is carried away with the flood.

Like a reed in calm weather, America once stood proud and tall, full of purpose and promise. Our entire society honored God, and the Bible was held up as the standard for our laws and judicial system. Even during my lifetime, school textbooks consisted of lessons and stories from the Bible. Jesus was acknowledged as the Son of God, the One who gives our country favor and untold blessings.

Yet, in our prosperity, we became like ancient Israel: proud and unthankful. And we’ve fallen a long way in a short time. God has been pushed out of our court systems, out of our schools, His name mocked and ridiculed.

Our society has totally lost its moral compass and as a result, the America that once stood tall is now crippled, like a bruised reed.

Default Patience

Message from a race car driver.....

> PATIENCE
>
> Good Morning from the road. We are in the Sunshine State for some racing, dirt, asphalt, short track, superspeedway, you name it we’ll be there to serve the racing community. As we continue our look at God’s character traits we focus on patience. Don’t pray for it, God will put you in situations that require it. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
>
> Patience, something we all could use a little more of. The other day I was in the donut shop, standing in line, waiting my turn patiently. Then it happened a short, skinny guy cut to the front placed his order and away he went. That was pretty risky, cutting in front of a fat guy in the donut line. I don’t know what he was thinking but it took all my composure not to go after him.
>
> There are times in life when patience pays dividends. I remember a race at Monadnock with the Whelen Modified Tour, a 200 lap event. They ran 200 laps without a caution. What a race, you could see it play out. The pole sitter started out steady and clearly had a plan. When a faster car passed him he didn’t change his strategy. He patiently waited and continued on his plan, falling back as far as third.
>
> His patience paid off, the faster cars planned on a caution, but none came. Slowly he climbed back to the lead as the others faded. He took the checkered, winning the race with a patient strategy.
>
> That isn’t always the case, but most times in life patience will pay off with a reward. Most times it keeps our foot out of our mouth. We tend to jump to conclusions without first taking a step back and looking things over, thinking things through. I am grateful God is patient with me.
>
> Romans 2:4 (NLT), Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
>
> Paul points out three character traits of God in this verse that we should be thankful for; Kindness, Patience and Tolerance. We have talked about kindness, which is God’s grace, his gift of salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
>
> We’ll talk about tolerance next week. Today read this story and see if we show others the same patience that God shows us.
>
> So one day He was at a traffic light, patiently waiting for it to turn green. The fellow in front seemed to be paying attention, but was deep in thought. The light turned green, he didn’t move. Beeping, yelling, waving hands, telling him he is number one, nothing worked. As the light turned yellow the fellow in front looked up, saw it and sped through.
>
> As he fumed, shook his fist and beat the dash of the car he noticed the cop behind him, lights flashing. He pulled over. The officer approached; “out of the car please”. He was cuffed and brought into the station.
>
> After some time the officer came back and was apologetic. I am sorry sir, I was sure you stole that car. Puzzled he asked. “Why?”
>
> The officer explained he watched the whole scene, all his antics, colorful language and hand gestures. The officer then noticed the Christian bumper stickers on the car. That didn’t add up. Surely the driver couldn’t be a Christian. He certainly didn’t display the character traits of God.
>
> We never know who is watching. We never know who is following our example. It is important to reflect the character of God if we claim to be His. Think about that this week and I’ll be back next week to look further into God’s character.
>
> Until next time, remember God loves you and Jesus is Lord over Auto Racing! God Bless. Remember, that your prayerful support helps us continue this ministry. Thank You.

Default Why Does The World Hate The Church?

WHY DOES THE WORLD HATE THE CHURCH?
David Wilkerson


A true Christian is loving, peaceful, forgiving and caring. Those who obey Jesus’ words are self-sacrificing, meek and kind.

Common wisdom tells us that it is not natural to hate those who love you, bless you and pray for you. Rather, people hate only those who abuse, rob and curse them. Why, then, are Christians so hated?

Jesus says, “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. . . . If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you” (John 15:18, 20). Why is this so?

The Church is hated because of its mission, which is much more than just telling lost people, “Jesus loves you.”

You may draw back in surprise when I remind you of what our mission is. Simply put, our mission as Christians is to take back from the ungodly what is most precious to them: self-righteousness.

The most precious thing to a worldly person is his self-righteousness. Think about it: He has spent his whole life forming a good opinion of himself. He’s built an idol to his good works. He praises himself that he’s really good at heart and kind to others. He is sure that he’s good enough for heaven, and too good for hell.

This ungodly man has spent years beating down his conscience and searing it. He has taught himself to still every voice of conviction that comes to him. He enjoys a false peace and has become so deceived that he actually believes God admires him!

And now, just when he has shut down the voice of his conscience, you—a Christian—come along. And the truth you bring speaks more loudly than his dead conscience: “Unless you’re born again, you can’t enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Suddenly, you’re a threat in this man’s mind. You’re someone who wants to deprive him of his assurance that all is well with his soul. All this time he thought he was okay, but now you’re telling him that all his good works are as filthy rags.

I tell you, this man doesn’t see you as someone who’s bringing good news. No, in his eyes you’re a tormenter, someone who’s out to take away his peaceful sleep at night.

United States of America Stunning Fact In Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s Death

Detectives Just Revealed Stunning Fact In Scalia’s Death Raising Red Flag- ‘I Almost Fell Out Of My Chair’

Homicide investigators are criticizing the procedures followed by Texas authorities after Saturday’s death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Scalia, 79, was founded dead Saturday while staying at the exclusive resort ranch owned by John Poindexter.

“We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bedclothes were unwrinkled,” Poindexter told the San Antonio Express-News Sunday. “It looked like he had not quite awakened from a nap.”

Scalia was declared dead of “natural causes” by Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara, who never saw the body. No autopsy was ordered.

“I took a look at the report and I almost fell out of my chair,” said Bill Ritchie, a retired deputy chief and former head of criminal investigations for the Washington, D.C. police.

“It’s not unreasonable to ask for an autopsy in this case, particularly knowing who he is,” said retired Brooklyn homicide Detective Patricia Tufo.

“He’s not at home. There are no witnesses to his death, and there was no reported explanation for why a pillow is over his head,” Tufo said. “So I think under the circumstances it’s not unreasonable to request an autopsy.”

“How in the world can that Texas judge, not even seeing the body, say that this is a heart attack?” Ritchie said, noting Guevara’s initial comments that the death was a heart attack. She later changed that opinion to “natural causes.”

“A US marshal can’t tell you. You need a medical professional. If this was Joe Blow, you say OK, 79 years of age, health problems, maybe natural causes. But this is a sitting justice of the Supreme Court!” Ritchie added.

“How do you know that person wasn’t smothered? How do you know it’s not a homicide until you conduct an investigation? You have to do your job. Once you go through that process, you can conclude that this is a naturally occurring death,” Ritchie said.

“I used to be an instructor in the homicide school. Every death investigation you are handling, you consider it a homicide until the investigation proves otherwise,” he said.

William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee, said “an extensive autopsy and toxicology examination should be both immediate and mandatory.”

“We do not contend there is a conspiracy, we contend that there should be no doubts, and the way authorities and the media are rushing conclusions will leave major doubts and legitimate concerns about a death that could lead to a radical political transformation of America to the left,” Gheen said.

Update re: Stunning Fact In Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s Death

Thousands Pour in For Antonin Scalia's Funeral Mass Led by His Son
-President Obama Will Not Attend Procession as He Reviews Possible Supreme Court Nominees

Daily Mail UK, 20 February 2016




Washington is capping two days of official mourning for Antonin Scalia with a funeral Mass for the Supreme Court justice, with thousands expected to pay their respects.


One of Scalia's nine children, the Reverend Paul Scalia, will lead the Mass on Saturday at the nation's largest Roman Catholic church, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Among those expected to attend to Mass was Vice President Joe Biden, along with the eight Supreme Court justices. Antonin Scalia, 79, died last weekend at a remote Texas ranch. He had spent nearly three decades on the high court.

Burial plans have not been announced. President Barack Obama will not attend as the White House Press secretary says he will spend a significant portion of his weekend reviewing possible Supreme Court nominees.





Family members follow behind the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia as his casket is brought into the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington on Saturday morning






Thousands are expected to pay their respects at a funeral mass for Antonin Scalia on the second day of mourning led by the Supreme Court justice's son, Reverend Paul Scalia

No eulogy is expected. Pictured, US Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, center, with Cheney in the upper left hand corner








Supreme Court justices Anthony Kennedy (top) and Clarence Thomas attended the service. Thomas, a fellow Catholic whose views aligned most closely with Scalia's, read a passage from the book of Romans











Scalia's colleagues on the Supreme Court, justices Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and best friend Ruth Bader Ginsburg paid their respects


Fellow Catholic, justice Clarence Thomas, read Romans 5:5-11 before Reverend Scalia thanked people on behalf of his family for offering prayers and words of consolation.
He said: 'Many have recounted what Dad did for them- but today we recount what God did for Dad. How he blessed him.'

He went on to acknowledge his mother Maureen, and his father's '55 years of marriage to the woman he loved'.
He said: 'God blessed Dad with a deep Catholic faith. Dad understood that the deeper he went in his Catholic faith, the better a public servant he became.'

Reverend Scalia also praised his father's intellect, but pointed out that more importantly, Antonin Scalia was a family man.
His voice quivered when he said: 'God blessed Dad with a love for his family.'

But he made room for laughs when he revealed: 'Sure, he forgot our names at times or mixed them up, but there are nine of us. He loved us and sought to show that love.

'To have each other for support - that's the greatest wealth parents can bestow. And right now we are particularly grateful for it.

Antonin Scalia, 79, died last weekend at a remote Texas ranch. He had spent nearly three decades on the high court. Burial plans have not been announced.

In addition to the eight justices sitting on the Supreme Court, retired justice John Paul Stevens attended the service with David H. Souter expected to appear as well.

Sandra Day O'Connor, 85, is currently in frail health and did not make it to Saturday's mass.

Arrivals included former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz and Republican Sens. John Cornyn of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah.

Several federal judges who are considered possible replacements for Scalia also were at the Mass, including Judges Sri Srinivasan and Patricia Millett and Chief Judge Merrick Garland, all of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

President Barack Obama will not attend, despite criticism from some Republicans. He and first lady Michelle Obama were among the more than 6,000 people who paid tribute to Scalia at the Supreme Court on Friday.

Josh Earnest, Obama's White House Press Secretary, said the president will spend a significant portion of his weekend reviewing individuals who 'may be worthy of consideration'.

He added: 'I would expect the president will spend a significant portion of his weekend digging into those materials'.

Scalia's flag-draped casket rested on a funeral bier that first held President Abraham Lincoln's casket after his assassination.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest pointed to Biden's personal relationship with Scalia's family and said Obama's decision about the Mass was a "respectful arrangement" that took into account his large security detail.


Scalia's casket remained at the Supreme Court until it was brought to the basilica on Saturday morning. In a court tradition, groups of his former law clerks took turns standing vigil.

GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz planned to interrupt his campaign ahead of Saturday's South Carolina primary to attend the Mass.
The Texas senator has been among those urging the Senate not to consider replacing Scalia until after the November election. Obama has insisted that he will nominate a successor.

Scheduled to give opening remarks at the Mass was Washington Archbishop Donald Cardinal Wuerl.

Leonard Leo, executive director of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group, was to read a passage from the Old Testament, while Justice Clarence Thomas planned to read from the New Testament.

Never before has a funeral for a Supreme Court justice been held at the basilica.
Three popes have visited the basilica: Pope John Paul II in 1979, Pope Benedict XVI in 2008 and Pope Francis last year.

Default The Church's One Foundation

THE CHURCH’S ONE FOUNDATION

1 The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord;
she is his new creation by water and the Word.
From heaven he came and sought her to be his holy bride;
with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.

2 Elect from every nation, yet one o’er all the earth;
her charter of salvation: one Lord, one faith, one birth.
One holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food,
and to one hope she presses, with every grace endued.

3 Though with a scornful wonder the world see her oppressed,
by schisms rent asunder, by heresies distressed,
yet saints their watch are keeping; their cry goes up: “How long?”
and soon the night of weeping shall be the morn of song.

4 Mid toil and tribulation, and tumult of her war,
she waits the consummation of peace forevermore,
till with the vision glorious her longing eyes are blest,
and the great church victorious shall be the church at rest.

5 Yet she on earth hath union with God the Three in One,
and mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won:
O happy ones and holy! Lord, give us grace that we
like them, the meek and lowly, may live eternally.
