He Shall Never Be Moved!
We all need rest as individuals, as well as a
people or nations. In this time of confusion, wars, rumors of
wars, and Satan setting up his new world order of a
communist/socialist police state, world wide ... we all yearn for
In 2nd Chronicles, chapter 14, we find many principles that lead us to
that rest. When Asa reigned, the land was quiet for ten years.
For, Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the Lord!
Goodness and righteousness always do cleansing ...
The cleansing of all false worship sites, images, and shelters
... the doing away of all false worship 'wanna be' gods and their
followers. Today, we have thousands of religious groupings who
worship many things; material man made, satanic images, and other
Asa commanded Judah to seek the Lord (God of their fathers), do the
law and the commandments, and he cleaned all the high places and
images. As a result, the kingdom was quiet before him.
He, also, built cities, walls, towers, gates, and bars ...
while the land is yet before us, because we have sought the Lord, our
God. We have sought Him and He hath given us rest on every side.
So, they built and prospered.
As a result there were many men, strong and courageous, men of
valor (as in verse 8). Asa continued in
reign, being strengthened and blessed for as long as he did in
obedience to the commands of the Lord God.
Thus, we see the principles set forth to cleanse a nation or peoples
to gain real peace. The world, today, is going in the opposite
direction, thus into total disobedience and rebellion ... making no
room for the God of Heaven; Father God and His Son, Lord Jesus Christ.
As a result, the world is in complete turmoil.
Mankind has not learned the lessons of history, only lived to
negate all that the Lord Jesus Christ and Father God are!
The world has no rest because of their attitude
toward the real Father and Lord, Jesus Christ. The world will
be let to prove their inability to live in peace and be at rest,
proving beyond any reasonable doubt that man does not have the
answers. Though, our Father and Lord Jesus do!
Learn these principles and live by them and you, as an individual, can
have that rest and, then, enlist others to do the same.
Then, we can make a difference in the world. For, we are lights
and salt in the world, to show others the way to perfect rest.

Daily, we are faced with many
issues in life. The most important issue is how we deal with our
Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ. Much of that is how
we approach our Heavenly Father. Do we come to Him as abba
abba Father or do we try to make Him our possession? To set the record
straight, we are His possession because we were purchased by the
sacrifice of Lord Jesus Christ. To establish a covenant
relationship makes it all possible.
Being honest with the Heavenly Father is a primary requisite for being
able to communicate to Him your love, reverence, and thankfulness for
His love and mercy! Total honesty is required for Him to
abundantly bless with His abundance of mercies and forgiveness.
Being honest with God, we first must be honest with ourselves ... to
face our sinful nature and all the sins committed and omitted.
We must bring every sin, no matter how big or small, directly to Him
and ask forgiveness. When we confess our sins, ask forgiveness,
and put them under the Blood of Jesus Christ they are forgiven and
remembered no more!
When we humble ourselves (I Pe. 5:6) and seek His face continually, we
receive the privilege of hearing His voice in speaking to us. He
speaks to us through His Word and in the voice of the Holy Spirit,
leading and instructing us in the way He wants us to go. Much of
this has to be for His service. We are His servants, to be used
for His Glory, and He sheds part of that back upon us. We are to
be still and know He is God!
We have 4 enemies to hold us back from being productive servants.
The first one is FEAR. Fear neutralizes so many because they
retreat in fear, being unfruitful because they don't understand.
Fear can be conquered by simply going forward, in Christ, to the task
assigned. The Lord says, "Go," and that is all that is
necessary to leave fear behind.
The second is INFERIORITY. This one rules out so many of God's
people because they don't really realize that, with Christ, all things
are possible. He always trains, equips, and empowers everyone to
accomplish everything that He asks us to do! No one is inferior
to be a success, in the Lord's work. We have to believe His
word and be led by the Holy Spirit to accomplish every opportunity
that comes our way.
The third enemy is GUILT, which we hang onto because we fail to put it
behind us or to let go after forgiveness has been granted. Guilt
will rob you of strength and empowerment to accomplish anything for
the Lord. Take all guilt to the alter of God and leave it there.
You don't need it. So, let go and let God use you to His
The last great enemy that Satan uses against everyone is HATE.
Hate is only misguided love. So, set it out in a new direction.
Hate is usually caused by a hurt, in every heart, because of sin of
someone or several. It can be overcome by asking for their
forgiveness and then forgetting the incident. Many
self-righteous members of the church or community causes much of this,
driving many away from the Lord.
Part of being honest with one's self is to recognize the enemy and
deal directly with it, as the Lord ask you to. Honesty is so
important in the life of the Christian. Honesty with God, with
ourselves and others, brings on rich rewards. In our prayer
life, with the Father and Lord Jesus Christ, I would encourage you to
be this way with all. It has very rich rewards with the
abundance of mercies, healings, blessings, and joys of being a dynamic
servant of Almighty God.
Pray that your relationships with God, yourselves, and others
will be strengthened and you will be richly and abundantly blessed ...
because you will, then, be a dynamic servant ~ with many
opportunities to share in His works. Become a soul winner as
Jesus makes you fishers of men, with all the dynamics of a rich and
blessed life in Christ Jesus. Prayer is the key that opens all
the doors to abundant living!

For I Have Seen God Face to Face
In recent times, fear and events of
the times that are closing in on all mankind, I am urged to tell
all that our Father wants us to seek His face as never before!
It has been impressed upon me, very strongly, to tell others to do
just that. We are so far from His face because we have all
became like the Laodicean church. Fear prevails and millions are marching
all over the world, saying 'no war, but peace'. Giving peace
and comfort to evil always creates and strengthens more evil.
Most are not seeking the Face of God, but rather, through ignorance and
walking in man's power, yielding unto spiritual evil forces ~ looking
for peace. This is the formula for total disaster! Spiritual warfare can only be victorious
when all of mankind seeks the Face of our Heavenly Father and His Son,
Lord Jesus Christ. There are no other Gods! There is
no other one we can turn to and receive power to walk in total
peace and victory. I have been encouraged to tell all to
"Seek the Face of God!" In Genesis, Chapter 32, we find Jacob
and his fears brought forth in not knowing the response of Esau when
they would meet. In his need, he turned to our
Father and sought His Face. They wrestled until the breaking
of day, like so many of us have and many more should. We are
to be encouraged to Seek His Face more than ever, in these
difficult times. Spiritual Warfare is raging at a high
pitch, throughout the whole world, because they have all went their
own way; departing from our Father's Face unto false gods and values of
the world of rebellion, power, and death ... that is instead of
seeking His Face and Life! The whole world has come to
the place whereby we have to choose and the choice is seeking His Face
or seeking death. It's your choice. Which side
you are on? When we decide to seek His Face and yield
ourselves to do just that, we have made a most wise decision. We
are to pray as long as it takes, seeking His Face until we are
victorious. With the victory comes knowing Him and not just
knowing about Him. When you have reached that level, you will
be so blessed, you will not need to ask for special favors ~ for, they
will be given automatic. Your serious prayers will be answered and
with extra blessings you dare not dream of. The answers will be
automatically answered beyond your expectations. Seek the Face of our Father and Lord,
Jesus Christ, and their Divine protection, provisions, and
blessings will be abundantly be given. Praise the Lord for His
mercy unto us, allowing us to seek His Face in times of great need, like
today! Perfect Peace will then be yours!

He Shall Never
These are some great thoughts of being
so strong, content, peaceful, and Christ like. For, that is what all
are seeking to be and so many fail because they don't understand. In Psalm 15, we meet the laws of
judgment and, when they are understood and complied with, the end result
is stability, strength, and immovableness. We can plant both
feet, square our shoulders, look upward and say, "Lord, thank
you for my abiding in you! For, you have planted me in your
tabernacle and dwell in your Holy Hill!" Be always aware that our conduct,
speech, and actions are in harmony with the Lord, that we walk
upright all the time and are concerned about others (putting all others
first and ourselves as servants of our Lord, on the behalf of others) that
all things, we are involved with and doing, are right and correct, to the
Glory of God. And, always give thanks for all things ... that, no
matter the situation, we are giving Glory, by all our works, as He works
through us to bless others. The giving principle prospers all,
as it is returned unto. In every nation where Christian giving
exists, there is prosperity. The other great area is the
speaking of truth in one's heart. When we have the Word of
God in our hearts and speak it forth, it always gives a return of
fruitfulness. The fruits of the Spirit are a great part of this
(of speaking forth truth, in love, not bowing down to evil, but choosing,
instead, to honor God and all His people). Even when it may cost
your life, or whatever the cost is in doing so, our Father and Lord,
Jesus Christ, will richly reward you. This has been proven
throughout the history of God's people (Esther 3, II Kings 4, and many
others). Being a good steward of all that the
Lord has given you, even to the smallest things; if you are diligent, He
will give you greater things as blessings ... and not to have power over
the innocent or ignorant but, instead, to be a blessing to them. When this is your life, like the life of
Jesus Christ living through you, then you will never be moved. But,
you will be like that old hymn, "I Shall Not Be Moved!"
May our Father and Lord, Jesus Christ, bless you, abundantly and
richly, as you endeavor to accomplish the rules of judgment.

Satan's End Time Tricks
The Wanna Be God!
Consider this: pray, read God's Word, and repent of all sin.
Time is now to seek more of our Father, Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy
Spirit. It is time to be serious with God and seek His Face.
Seek His Divine Protection and Provision in these end time wars and
Our Father is in control, but will permit mankind to prove himself unable to live
in peace and harmony, without His Son! The events already started, some
time back. The decisions are clearly made. With Israel, being the
main target for destruction by the kingdom of the south, the nations of
Moslems will come against Israel and USA with many attacks, from many
sides, in attempt to totally destroy the Israelis and American
Christians ... to rid the earth of the mention of the True God and Jesus
Christ, and all their peoples.
While we are busy defending ourselves from all sides, the Red Chinese and
North Koreans (and all other communists nations) will sweep down the Pacific,
from Japan to Australia ... thus, ridding the Asian nations of the mention of
our Father. The two prongs of attack have already started and the
picture is very clear. The Koreans and Chinese will attack
Japan, in a few days or weeks, and begin their sweep southward; which will
take about 2 to 3 years to accomplish. The United States will not be
able to help our Asian allies because of the destruction of our own nation and
losing control of the oil supplies of the world.
This is just a small scenario. But, check out the scriptures and you
will find it as part of the end time events. The only
alternative, to have this not to happen, is to waken up the Christians in
these counties and pray like never before ~ for more of God and His Divine
protection and provisions. Our Father and Jesus Christ are our only
defense. Some, who read this, will not accept the challenge because they
are unwilling to surrender and leave the world value system. They will
lose it all, anyway. So, why not join in on the Lord's side?
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from
and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
11 Chronicles 7:14
This scripture is the only answer we need. It is simple: repent,
repent, repent and seek God's face. Quit being the Laodicean church,
in Revelation 3:14; a luke warm, self-righteous, unrepented, religious people
with no conviction or power ... led by smooth tongued, blind, leaders, who
think it is a job for hire. (Sorry for the strong language. But, you'd
better check out God's Word.)
This is not to hurt anyone, but to call attention to the greatest need of
the modern church in our time. It is time to seek God's face, repent
of our self-righteousness and other attitudes which keep others from
Christ Jesus, and to prepare the people for the days ahead ~ to make sure
they are ready! Be Ye Ready for you know not the day or the hour!
We have all experienced a little wickedness
that comes against us from others; from some family members, neighbors,
and those in power over us. We get to the point of, "Why,
Lord, could people be so evil set against me?" We have been
gossiped, back bitten, openly insulted, and verbally
attacked. Some might have even been attacked physically, with malice
This makes us feel the whole world is against us.
"What is the use to go on?" and "Why, even, try
anymore!" We might be like King David, in Psalm 109, whereby so
many had harmed him, with the aid of Satan and his demons. Even King
Saul attempted to capture him and take his life, with the purpose of
We, then, can be able to see the cross with Jesus on
it, in agony, as He hung there for us. How He looked out on the
crowd with compassion and mercy as He said, "Father, forgive
them, for they know what they do" ... the insults, beatings, berating, cursings,
and reviling with mockery.
David said, in Psalm 109:21, "But do thou
for me, O God the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy is good,
deliver thou me!" David prayed for deliverance because He
knew the Lord and His wonderful mercy, and His power to deliver in times of
danger. He knew the power of our Father's divine protection and
"Help me, O Lord my God: O save me according to
thy mercy: That they may know that this is thy hand: that
thou, Lord, has done it." Psalm 109: 26-27
So, when we find ourselves in like manner, remember
He is able to save to the uttermost, in the most dire circumstance.
Nothing can harm you, with our Father's divine protection,
provision, through the Holy Spirit and His Word! He will speak to
you at the time you need it the most and in the Word that you have known
almost all your life. You will know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, of
His amazing deliverance.
When you are delivered, remember who did it for
you and give Him, totally, your life. He will abundantly bless and, as
you humble yourself like unto 1 Pe. 5:6, you will have the most exciting
life the remainder of your earthly life, with super abundance of blessings. His deliverance
is guaranteed because of His blood covenant with you, in the precious blood
of Jesus Christ.

Great is thy name, and greatly
to be praised and worshiped. We praise and worship you.
We stand in awe and amazement at your great and mighty works, knowing your
Forgive us of all of our sins,
to this very moment. Help us to forgive others who have wronged us.
Renew our spirit, and bring us into thy glorious presence ...
that we might share thy glory with others. Help us, by our
lives, to show You to others; that they might desire to serve you. Help us to be able to stand in
these troubled times. (Ep. 6:13) Wherefore, take unto us
the whole armor of God, that we may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.
Heavenly Father, use us to win
souls to you and to minister to all their needs; that they might be free in
Christ Jesus: Our Wonderful Lord and Master. For Your Word says,
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty."
Heavenly Father, send your
Spirit to our land and give us a national revival whereby many souls will
be saved ... those that are deep in sin, those that are hurting, those in
ignorance, and those in false religions .... that we may all be
saved by thy Amazing Grace.
Heavenly Father, may thy Word be
real in our lives. May we take on the whole armor of God and
be able to stand in time of trouble. We pray that you will use us
as thy servants and do great things thru us, winning souls unto you ...
that we may be strongly salted and bright lighted, wherein others
can see the Glory of Jesus Christ thru us.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for
listening to us, for blessing us, for using us, for thy Divine
Protection, for thy Divine Provision, for thy Divine Love, for thy
forgiveness, for thy Mercy, and for your great Amazing Grace.
Thank you, Jesus Christ, for dying
for us and purchasing us with your own blood. Thank you,
Jesus Christ, for blessing us with your great salvation, for
the privileges we have as children of God, for the Blessed Hope you give, and
for accepting poor lost sinners as your friends.
We ask this for your Glory,
Praise, and Honor. In Jesus name, Amen.

We question, many
times, and wonder why we are not receiving very important blessings
when we need them most. We even tend to think that our Heavenly
Father and Jesus Christ has forgotten about us in our situation. We
may go to the point of not trusting them when we need to trust the most.
Why is that happening to us?
In Kings 4:11, we begin to understand the principle
is revealed to those who have spiritual insight into the secrets hid there.
The first example is in the beginning of the chapter. It is about a
certain woman, of the wives of the sons of the prophets. Then, the story
unfolds of our Heavenly Father's blessing upon her because of the service of
the prophet's life to the Lord. He gave the wonderful blessing.
Read it yourself and learn the principle. Then, apply it to receive
special Blessings Earned in Service.
In verse 8 and following, we have another example of a
great woman who blessed Elisha with bread to eat. As often as Elisha
passed by, He turned in to eat bread. It was a place of welcome and
blessing to God's servant. Not only that, but it went even
further to provide a place to rest, sleep, and be refreshed for another
Then, after a way of life had been established in
blessing the servant, Elisha said, "Call this Shunammite woman."
And when she had stood before Him, He said unto him, "Say now unto her,
'Behold, thou has been careful for us with all this care. What is to be
done for thee?'" Wonderful question! But, it would only
have been asked after proven blessings had been provided over a period of
time; honoring God's servant. By honoring God's servants, we then
receive special blessings, honors, and privileges beyond what others can
Our Heavenly Father and Lord, Jesus Christ, are jealous
and zealous for our praise, worship, and our service to them and their
servants. So, when you have received a special blessing from or
through one of their servants, always render unto them praise,
thanksgiving, and (very important) remember their servant through which the
blessing came. It is very important to learn this spiritual
principle and apply it, daily, over a period of time. Then, blessings
follow down the road when you need it the most.
These special blessings come in many ways and only
through servants that are proved by the Most High God, our Heavenly Father,
and Lord, Jesus Christ. (There are no other Gods. They are
all 'wanna be' gods.) They keep record of your humble service
in blessing Their servants. These servants can be your minister, workers
in the church, or dedicated servants in the Christian community. When
you pray, "Lord, send someone to me," these are the ones He sends to
answer your prayer. They are the ones always saying, "Lord, Here Am
I. Send Me!!"
When you have received this special blessing, you must
always give God the Father, Lord, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit the
glory. BUT, also include the servant through whom you are blessed!
It is very important to do this, to your glory. Neglect this principle
and you will lose a reward, and maybe even more than you are able to pay ~ for
not sharing the glory with all concerned!!!
Our Heavenly Father and Lord, Jesus Christ, want to give
many more blessings. But, when you fail to learn this principle and
apply it, you lose. You can't afford not to humble yourselves and
give thanks, proper reward of praise, and credit to all concerned in your
receiving these special blessings. There might be healing, new jobs, peaceful
relationships, or many other blessings ~ when you need them the most!
Therefore, begin to bless all the servants of
Almighty God, our Father, and Lord, Jesus Christ, when you are being
taught, ministered to, or when you are being special prayed for. Many
times, a special, total, change in your life will take place and you will
definitely know it is a special blessing from our God.
He wants to bless you more. But, you would not
learn or listen when He has told you before. So now, read and
understand. In God's Word are many spiritual principles He
wants you to learn and apply, so you can be abundantly blessed and His
