Time Is Flying By

Royalty-Free-RF-Clip-Art-Illustration-Of-Flying-Clocks-Chasing-A-Man-450437895[1]Last year there was a book published about harbingers.   To my mind a harbinger is a warning that something is on the way, it is not far off and you better be prepared, and it seems to me that these harbingers are, for the most part, not good tidings.

When I saw this headline in our local paper  “53 -Year Standoff Ends”, I thought, “Harbinger”. What followed in the article were pictures about an American contractor released from Cuba, pictures of joyful people across the country and one with “anti-Castro activists” chanting anti-Obama slogans in Little Havana.  Relationship with Communist Cuba is now restored….harbinger!

The column right next to it says, “N. Korea linked to Sony attack”.  It speaks of intimidation, cancellation of a T. V. show and the belief that hackers were working for the North Korean government….harbinger.

In the 1980’s I had a vision, as did several other people.  It was of an aerial attack by Russia across the Bering Straits, across Alaska, across Canada, entering US territory and the bombing military bases from the Canadian border to the Southern border.  The airplanes were stealth bombers flying tree-top level.  I was also given a poem that spoke of them watching for the right time to attack.

Three years ago it was seen by an intercessor that Russian submarines were in the Gulf of Mexico.  Newspapers later revealed they had been there at that exact time.

Many people have seen attacks on the coasts of America coming in the form of rockets from submarines or ships in international waters.  Some have seen Eastern seaboard cities on fire.

In addition to these, we are aware that there are over a thousand ISIS cells in America.  There are many Moslem groups who support and fund them.  It is believed by some that Iran is behind them….harbinger

It seems to me that the enemy is at the door, but Americans are, by and large, asleep or unaware of the signs of the times, and many people believe that everything will continue as it always has for generations to come so they close their ears and their eyes.  I have talked to them.

It is a new day, and in my opinion, it will be the demise of “The American Dream” with all that term means.  The globalists want a government that is controlled by a strong leader, where earth is divided into regions, and America, as we know it today, is no more.  They are working diligently to make that happen, but it takes time.  I think we are getting close to that day, that “new world order”.

Socialism is the order of the day, I believe that it will be a society where the elite are supported by the working class, who work only to support them, while they themselves subsist on a meager amount of food, clothes and shelter.   To my way of thinking this is the plan the socialists, have for America.

Think that will never happen in America?  I pray that you are right, but I believe you are wrong, I just hope that blind eyes are opened before it is too late and destruction comes that will implement “their” takeover plan.  You have to destroy the old to bring in the new, it has ever been so, I do not think this is any different.

Through the years the “racist” card has been played effectively.  Much of what the African race has endured over the years has been horrendous.  But, like anything else there are ditches on both sides of the road and this is no different.  The Aryan race thought itself superior for a lot of years, which accounted for centuries of abuse.

There is a force loosed in America at this time that is racist, it is the flip side of what took place in the 1800’s.  The African race has tasted the power of riot and terror, they have seen how effective it is against the Aryans who want to stay in their comfortable enclaves and not experience any upheaval, and I promise you, it will grow.  It fits right in with “The Plan’.

Communism/Socialism, like many “isms”, promises many things but deliver only constraints, fear and death. (if you don’t go by their rules.)  There was a perfume commercial years ago:  “Promise her anything, but give her Arpege.”  “Isms” make bold promises and may toss a few crumbs your way to keep you attached to them, but in the long run, “you owe your soul to the company store”, as Tennessee Ernie Ford used to sing.

What am I saying?  I am seeing the world very speedily advancing along the lines of Biblical prophecy.  There are almost daily advances that can be seen on TV, in newspapers, magazines, the internet etc. that verify to those with eyes to see that a takeover will happen in the near future.  In addition to that, weather patterns, signs in the heavens and natural disasters are on the increase, which also lead me to believe this scenario.

America will not be lost from being a nation.  But, the America that arises out of the ashes will not be what it once was.  George Washington had a vision of three wars on American soil, two have taken place already, I believe the third is not going to linger very much longer.  In the end of the vision, Washington saw the “Angel of the Union” plant the American flag and declare that the nation will survive the attack from the European, Asian and African continent, but it will be a very different America that it was.

You have heard the term, “Get your ducks in a row?”  Well, this would be a good time to do that.  Start with humbling yourself before the God of Heaven and Earth, who created all living things, including you.  Confess your rebellion against Him and your need of His forgiveness.  Ask Him to receive you through Jesus blood and finished work.  The price He paid to buy you out of slavery to sin is more than enough.  Then, receive your freedom through Jesus.

I am sincerely trusting that you have been stirred to take remedial action if you are on the wrong side of God through sin and rebellion.  Time is ticking by fast.  Who knows if this may be your final call?  Make sure you know that your final destination is Heaven, should your life end suddenly.

My prayers arise for your salvation and those of your household.   Acts: 16:31   Joy

 

Lady’s Song

She called herself Lady. I don’t know why. When I first noticed her she was standing at the counter. I was assigned the task of being a greeter that day and I welcomed her. My thought was that she looked pretty tough. I wondered about her story. Everyone has a story, you know. I was drawn to her, sensing that there was more to her than what the natural eye could see.

Today I met her again and this time I heard the story. She is an artist, a singer, song-writer and writer as well as a photographer by trade. But, she carries a calling and a burden for people of the street. Disposable people, throw away people is what most folks think they are. The misfits, the con-artists, those who are strung out on drugs or alcohol, people that “decent” people don’t want to think about, much less have anything to do with. Yet, here is a woman with a heart as big as all outdoors, who is literally doing everything that she can to help them along the path to wholeness.

Lady shared a story with me about a woman who was determined to do what she could about human trafficking. She had made contact with thirty churches and every one refused to help her. Somehow she got connected to Lady and was helped.

I heard a story long ago of a woman who came on hard times, she just needed a hand up, kind of to get past a rough spot in the road. She went to the church that her parents had attended. They had financed some major projects for the church, she was sure they would help her. They turned her down, saying that they could not help her or they would have to help everyone that came with their hand out. Needless to say, she wanted nothing to do with Christianity, if that was how it worked.

A short time ago I had a conversation with my eldest son, this happens infrequently so it was a pleasure that I cherish. We began talking about his business, some politics and ended up on spiritual matters. We came to agreement that in every area of our lives we must have balance, vision and passion. If you are not zealous for something you will do nothing. There is a saying, “If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” Truth!

Lady has a vision to help the lost souls on the street, but in the process she is allowing God to break her heart for what breaks His. This process is painful but necesssary, if you wish to be mightily used by God. Lady has received help from many in the church that I attend, even though she does not attend. I love the part of the Body of Messiah that I have been called to be a part of, I am so thankful to the Lord for allowing me to be here in this place, at this time!

Preparation is taking place everywhere. The Holy Spirit of God is making ready the Body of Messiah. Harvestime is upon us, a major, huge harvest will enter into the Kingdom of God soon, but not without a great shaking first. Now is the time to make sure you are in right standing with the Lord God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Today is the day of salvation. If you have not received God’s gift of the Savior, Jesus, why don’t you do so now. First you must realize that “all have sinned” there is not one human being that is not a sinner, not inherently good. Confess the fact that you are a sinner and you need a savior, ask Jesus to be your Savior and Lord and you will be saved.

If you did that, welcome to the family of God! Begin to read the Bible, attend a Bible-believing church, talk to God, (we call it prayer) and get with people of like faith. The Spirit of God will help you grow up. You do not need to ever have a boring day again. Relationship with God does not have to be boring, it depends upon you. God loves adventures. Why don’t you start yours today?

Have a Blessed Day!

Absolutes

Right or Wrong. True or False.  Good or Evil.

Are there really absolutes or are these archaic concepts?  Do they apply to my life and yours, are they relevant to everyday living…or are my rights right regardless of the infringement upon your rights?  My truth the absolute truth, my good right and yours wrong?

In America, the founding fathers agreed to the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain and signed it with determination.  They envisioned a land where “All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  They believed that these truth were “self-evident”.

The position of being dominated by the king of England was repugnant to them, they believed they had the right to govern themselves. The founding fathers of America looked forward to an America where the principles that they held dear, ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”, would be the standard by which the new nation would live.  They were independent, they fought for what they believed and won against all odds.  A new nation was born.

Yet, as often happens, the vision of the founder does not come to fruition when the visionary dies.  Those who take over after him cannot see what he saw and therefore, they decide they have a better way…their way.  “Out with the old, in with the new.”  “A new broom sweeps clean.”  Change.

America today has many problems.  What has been the norm for hundreds of years is now being interpreted, challenged and changed or ignored altogether.  There are “conspiracy theories” that some group has put into motion a plan to take away the rights of the American people, reversing what the founding fathers fought, bled and died for.  America is in trouble.

Have you heard this:  “If it feels good, do it!”  “If you don’t take care of number one, who will?” 

I suggest that in the world today, not just in America, what matters to most people is what they think and what they want.  People don’t want anyone telling them what they can and cannot do.  “I have the right to do what I want to do.”

Consider this word:  Relevant.  Not right or wrong.  Not good or evil,  Not even true or false, only what I think matters, what is important to me, what is relevant to my life.

We teach our children to be independent from a very young age; we train them to take care of themselves, we help them learn to walk, go “potty”, tie their shoes, dress themselves etc.; we see it as “growing up”.  It is a good thing.  A child is thought backward if they do not become independent.

The Declaration of Independence states the intent of the founding fathers, that America is an independent nation, no longer dependent upon Britain and her king, that we have the right to govern ourselves as we see fit through majority rule.  It was a good thing, a goal to strive for.

But today, many have declared themselves independent of constraint or restraint when they feel that their rights are not being honored.  They fight against the majority of Americans, not to just do what they want to do, but to force society to support them in what they want to do.

I don’t have to enumerate the “rights” that are fought over today, I have no doubt that they are clear to all of us.  But, I want to provoke you, dear reader, to consider how the “rights” of the minority have infringed upon the “rights” of the majority.

How can a small minority of people or even one person, cause a whole society to be changed.  Is it because they cry the loudest or is it because it is  “the squeaky wheel that gets the oil.”?  Or is there another reason, something that is far deeper, something hidden to the natural eye?

“In the beginning God”…  I believe it is because we have taken God out of the picture.  A friend of mine used to say,  “The world is going to Hell in a hand basket.” It appears to me that society is going forward into the hand basket of “relevance”, that the whole fabric of American society is being permeated by this insidious enemy.  An enemy that shoves everything out of the picture but human self-will.  A society that is moved by its senses….”If it feels good, do it.”

There is movement in the church that has pushed the one true God out for a version of their own making.  A God who loves people just where they are, and He does, who does not bring any conviction regarding sin or styles of living, which He does not do, rather He “disciplines those He loves”.   They rewrite the Bible in their minds, omitting those things they don’t agree with.  And once more the Christ, the Messiah, is the stumbling block.  Because He is Truth they must counterfeit Him for another Jesus.  This is what religion always does.

The “Emergent Church” is the buzz word for what is happening in the Christian religion, old is bad, new is good, so out with the old and in with the new.  Another new thing on the scene is “Chrislam” which combines Christianity and Islam.  They believe that Allah and God are one and the same.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  This did not happen, could not happen, until Jesus was removed from His rightful place as the Son of God, divinely born, crucified, dead, buried and resurrected.

My point…In 1963 we shoved God out of school.  Since then He has been pushed out of literally every area of our lives.  Several Christian denominations have put away foundational doctines of the faith because they are “no longer relevant” to today’s society.

Soon to arise on the scene will be a “religion” that is acceptable to all man-kind, acceptable to all religions.  It will be relevant.  It will be accepted, even hailed by the masses.  Humanity at last will have a god that all can worship, a perfect human.

The one true God, the creator of Heaven and Earth, is no longer honored and respected in the life of individuals, in the home and thus in the society.  We have arrived at the time when every man is doing what is right in his own eyes.  It is the evil day that is spoken of in Scripture.

There are absolutes.  There is that which is right and yet does not infringe upon the right of another, there is truth that never changes and there is good, found in the only One who is good.  And, there is unity in diversity that does not command conformity but allows freedom for the person to be all that the creator planned for him.

Unity is Freedom to be what God designed you to be.  Uniformity demands conformity.

United States of America…United, in Union, in Unity of agreement and purpose.  But not now……….  Splintered, shattered, wounded……..America is sick unto death.  How long before collapse… internally or from wounds inflicted from enemies?  Sorrow in the creator’s heart, grief.  His plan for her was good, but she chose her own way, like her sister before her.  What next? Only God knows……

If you believe, pray.

I am thoughtfully and prayerfully His,

Joy
