The people asked for a king. They cried and cried to God to make them a nation like the others, so he fulfilled their wishes, though he knew they were better off with the system he had set up. God gave them Saul. He was a bad king and treated the people of the kingdom poorly, and they regretted their prayers. God anointed David while Saul was still king, but David had to learn how to be a king, so while he waited, God taught him through many trials and lessons. He grew in strength and knowledge, and after Saul died, David became the most well-known king Israel has ever had. 

Then Jesus comes along many years later, fulfilling all of the prophecies about him, did miracles, and taught them how to enter the kingdom of heaven while on earth, but they listened to the Pharisees and the leaders and believed all the false information they heard about him. Jesus showed the people the truth, but they were too blind to see it, so they crucified him. 


Sometimes God gives blind people what they ask for so they will open their eyes to the truth. He allows them to suffer the consequences of their actions. Those who recognized the truth and supported the good king have to sit back and watch as the people get what they deserve. Fortunately for us, God resurrected our true King, and we live under his protection no matter who is crowned here on earth.


So Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Behold the man!” When the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, “Crucify him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and crucify him, for I find no guilt in him.” John 19:5-6

The more my eyes are enlightened to the truth of this world, the more I understand why, when I was a child, my parents prohibited me from watching certain things on television. Because of their love, they protected me from becoming indoctrinated into submission to the government, Hollywood, the news, and the satanic cult. The government uses Hollywood and the news to control the people's minds, teaching them how they want them to act, behave, and respond to certain situations. It’s hard to know what to believe today. 

Did you know that the term “conspiracy theorist” is a made-up term to label people who are getting close to the truth, insult them, and direct them away from it? When we hear that the only truth is in the Bible, you better believe it! I’m at the point where I think the only way for us to get back to what God had intended is for Jesus to return right away, or the Tower of Babel needs to come down again, meaning the television and the internet! We need to get back to enjoying one another by meeting together in person and experiencing what it means to be human again. You need to ask God to give you discernment so you can uncover the truth for yourself.


Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” After he had said this, he went back outside to the Jews and told them, “I find no guilt in him. John 18:37-38

There is a movement in this world that most people don’t believe, if that’s you, you need to get your head out of the sand and take a look around. There is a sinister underground network that enslaves children. You can hear about these missing children and the arrest of their captors in the real news. Some of these children have been abandoned and have no homes to return to, and may have been held captive since birth. My heart breaks for them. How are they going to overcome the trauma? Will there be people to help them reenter society? I expect we will begin to see more of this very soon, and I feel we need a plan to help them. What are the people of God going to do? We cannot leave them to others in the world to handle this; that’s why they are in this situation. Today, ask God if this may be a ministry you should consider getting involved in. Start praying about it now because the need for workers in that ministry will be opening very soon.

"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward." Psalms 127:3

Yesterday, I spent some time on the beach. The shoreline soothes my soul, and I can focus my prayer and conversations with God. I usually hear God’s voice when I’m quiet, but on this day, I heard him in my prayer. It was so much more than I could have ever imagined. I began speaking in rhythms like a rapper or a poet. I almost couldn’t believe what I was hearing; each word I said related to the previous and was reminiscent of a psalm. It was a stunningly beautiful array of passionate conversation with our Heavenly Father. How does this happen, and who can I thank for this scripted yet unscripted linguistic ability to arrange my words? There is only one who can take a moment and make it his own, the Holy Spirit. Is this a new chapter in my writing? Maybe, but I have to study poetic form to make sure I’m following a pattern so I don’t appear foolish. If God can take hold of the words that I know and form them into rhythmic prayer, you can bet he can use the language of angels to glorify himself when we release our worries and open our mouths and let the sounds flow. Don’t be afraid. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak through your prayer and arrange the letters for you when you are at a loss for what to say. 

To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning. Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray. Psalms 5:1-2

For now, you must focus on peace. The world is stirred and shook over the current events, but we who are saved know that these things must take place to bring the full number into the sheepfold. Yes, it seems that God is separating the wheat from the weeds, the good from the evil. But what can we do about it? We wish for no one to spend eternity in hell, but the evil misdeeds of some are going to tear us apart. There is one thing we can count on during a transition of power; our military. The men and women who make up our armed forces are our friends and family. They are the ones who will make sure the constitution is followed and will protect us from any invaders, foreign or domestic. Their commanding officers will make sure that proper action is taken by all and take charge if they see that there is influence by a foreign adversary who may be looking to take control. 

As I was studying this morning, I noticed that in three chapters in a row, Jesus said to ask him, and he will do it! Though I’ve read these chapters and verses many times, I’ve failed to notice how often he said it. It was all in one speech, but it has been broken down into chapters by the writer or translators. Please pray, and make sure you either begin or end your prayer with “in Jesus' name;” ask him to sort out our situation for good; in Jesus's name! 


If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. John 14:4; If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7; Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. John 16:24

When the world opens its eyes, if God allows it, there is going to be fear and trembling at the sight of what he has done, but we will rejoice! After all the pieces fall into place and the day of reckoning comes, we will see the evil that the darkness hid. I hope you’re seeing some of it now because I am. Those hearts that God hardened may never see, but thanks be to God that we whose eyes are open will see the recompense of the wicked and walk across the Red Sea on dry ground. We will watch as the Egyptians drown in the tidal wave that they didn’t expect. Right now, they are playing a role in a perfectly scripted drama with sinister undertones, but in the end, the good guys always win, don’t they? It may seem that the story has finished, but the next scene is just beginning, and there is a plot twist that the actors failed to notice; they were written out of the script, and they had to go home early. The point is, don’t get too caught up in the drama that’s unfolding; God’s plan is never what we expect, but I guarantee you, the outcome will be in favor of those who love him. God always wins!

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27

We are living in an exciting time! If you are giving up now, you are leaving before the show begins. Do you leave a movie after you’ve watched the previews? This is our moment to shine! We have to bring hope to a world that is deflated, rejected, and battle weary. If you give up now, how will the people of the world react to your lack of faith? I am more energized today than I’ve been in a very long time. I know we’ve overused this term lately, but we are here for such a time as this! If you walk away now, you will be rejecting the position God gave you; there will be consequences for that. 

Stand firm, warriors! There is no need to fret; God will not forsake us; he loves us too much to leave us. Stand on his promises! He never said this life would be easy; it wasn’t easy for Jesus, but he managed very well during his time in the flesh. He resides within us to give us the strength to carry on his mission. We don’t need a bunch of “Christians” running around with a doom and gloom attitude. Lift your head, put a smile on your face, and show the world that your faith is strong. Buckle up, buttercup! The fun has just begun!


“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1

If things don’t turn out as you hoped, be encouraged. In Jesus’s day, they had hoped that he would take over and become their king, and when they crucified him, they were disappointed and shocked. They had thought he was going to save them in their lifetime, but he saved them and us for eternity. What we are seeing is only the surface, a fraction of the truth. Will we ever know the whole story? Will we even care once the glory of God overshadows us? No, I believe nothing we’ve experienced will matter once we are in his presence. 

I don’t know what will happen today; my only hope is that people don’t turn their backs on God if things don’t turn out the way they expect; they don’t understand the whole picture, none of us do. You may be facing the most critical test of your faith; stand firm, this is your Goliath, and you only need one stone to take him out, the stone that the builders rejected! Whatever happens, it will be interesting to watch it unfold. Stay tuned into the Holy Spirit; you need his presence, now more than ever.


This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:11-12

How can I offend you today? Oh, I know; I’ll tell you the truth! Do not be caught off guard! If our country’s current trajectory, as portrayed in the media, is to come to fruition, this may be one of my last posts. Like many of you, I am part of the problem because I believe in something more powerful than humanity. Together, we remind the guilty of their sinful nature, and they will try to eliminate us or confine us so their conscience will feel clear. Our country, going down this path, will lead the world in the same direction. If you are not praying for the good guys to win, you are part of the problem; being complacent on this issue puts you in the same category as them, blind! See, I told you I would offend you!

If what we, the conscious, are hearing in the undercurrents are true, then there will be more time to bring our loved ones to salvation, and the great awakening will begin. You will also see that everything you believed about our government was a lie, which is why we are in this predicament. Do not be afraid. When it seems that things are falling apart, they are only falling into place. If you have no idea what I am referring to, you need to pray for yourself, and you need to pray for God to wake you up before your world begins to spin out of control. Oh, look, I offended you again! Not sorry. Wake up, my fellow believers, and pay attention to the truth, or you’re going to get caught up in a web of lies that will cause you to fall to the ground riddled with fear! If you know Jesus, you know the truth!


I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. John 12:46

It’s very quiet; too quiet. Are we in the eye of the hurricane? The sun is out, the sky is clear, and the world seems somewhat normal. However, the wind is changing direction, and the backside of the hurricane is approaching. What will become of us when its power begins to rage? Nothing, unless the light blinds you. What’s funny is that the blind think we are the ones who are blind! Oh, but I see ever so clearly; my eyes are open to the truth, how about you?

Many in Jesus’s day knew the truth about him but refused to admit it for fear of the Pharisees, so they kept quiet. Today, many say they believe but are too caught up in worldly affairs to leave them behind. The price is too high for them to follow Jesus, but we know it costs more to reject him. 


Though the sun is shining today, the backside of the hurricane is getting closer, and time is running out. Bask in the glory of Jesus; commit to memory all he has done for you; because when things get tough, we will need to remember how faithful he has been and not lose hope. Are you prepared? If you trust in Jesus, you have everything you need to survive the storm.


While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” When Jesus had said these things, he departed and hid himself from them. John 12:36

From my vantage point, I can see the shoreline. Yesterday, I watched the waves crashing and could see the tornadic behavior of the wind as it stirred up the Gulf of Mexico. The surf was angry and cold, and people took cover. We saw very little activity; the beachgoers stayed home sheltering from the storm. We didn’t venture out until midday, but we stayed away from the stormy shore. 

We can see the activity with our eyes, though no one speaks of it. We hear voices of glee from the blind and the evil forces. What lies ahead as this uncontrolled storm approaches? If you’re not careful, you will let the activities of this day and age discourage you; I’m not immune, though I have a thorough understanding that God is in control. Wherever your mind goes as it sees the approaching storm, be encouraged; you are more secure than you think. The followers of evil have no hope, but you have Jesus, the only hope needed to traverse such a time as this.


Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him. John 12:25-26

We are used to getting our news from the media; however, we can no longer count on it being fair and balanced like it was back in the day. I’m not sure if we even got the whole story back then! Forgive me if I’ve reported on this too much, but remember how we all prayed for the light to shine in the darkness? Well, it seems that might be happening! Real corruption has been put on display for all to see. I started reading some of it, but it’s too much; I hope there are some trustworthy, investigative minds out there who will dive into the recently declassified information and report back on what they’ve found.

I’ve been reading the book of John in the light of things going on now, and I feel like it is narrating the events we are seeing. You never know when God will highlight the scenes of the day by using ancient truths. Please keep this in mind; it may look like things are falling apart; however, they are falling into place. Buckle up, this ride might get a little bumpy, but it’s going to be okay! Get out the popcorn and watch! Now is the time to ask yourself, “can I handle the truth?;” because God’s plan is never boring!


So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well, because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and believing in Jesus. John 12:10-11

Some say that money is the root of all evil, but that is not true; much good can come from money, especially if you do your part and tithe to your church. The Bible says that the “love” of money is the root of all “kinds” of evil; that is true. The trajectory of the world can attest to that. 

Things haven’t changed much over the years since Jesus was crucified. For example, after Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, the chief priest and the Pharisees worried that if they let Jesus continue, the Romans would take away both their place and their nation. Jesus was threatening their power and their land!


I find this very compatible with what we see today. The wicked have pulled out all the stops to keep their evil empire lining their pockets rather than turning to Jesus and receiving eternal life and a peace that passes all understanding. Money doesn’t bring peace and won’t give you eternal life; what more could you want? Fame; power? All of that will burn up before you get to hell! 


Just as our president began cleaning up the swamp; the swamp fought back because it threatened their money supply and power; thus, you have the situation we are in now. This one-man needed to be sacrificed to ensure they didn’t lose their control and nation. With all the cries to God for help, I expect that we will be hearing the armies of God come to our rescue soon. Wait for it!


If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.” John 11:48

For years now, I’ve been encouraging people through this daily post to make you consider if you are genuinely saved. Just because you say you are a follower of Christ doesn’t mean you know him. Yes, I know you’ve walked through the steps to salvation, but if your heart hasn’t changed or grown closer to Jesus over the years since, you must consider that your salvation is not secured. When God shakes the church, and it’s coming soon, will you be linked to him, or will you fall out and be separated from the true believers? It's going to happen! Will you be able to endure persecution by standing firm for him, or will you deny him before man and have him deny you before God by saying, “I never knew you?” The events happening right now are not only for America; the world is shaking! 

As you prepare your home for possible loss of power or an altered food supply, prepare your heart for what may be coming. Make sure you are chained to Jesus and not the world. Things aren’t looking pretty out there, and we need to be ready.


So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33

The United States has been dead for a while; as we patiently wait for Jesus to come and heal us, our corpse is beginning to stink, and the world has started mourning our death. Just like Mary and Martha sent for Jesus to come and heal their brother Lazarus, we have called to Jesus to come and heal us before we die, and now it seems too late. Is it still possible that we could see the resurrection of the body of our country? The hours are waning and now seems impossible. Our government is trampling our Constitution and shredding our Bill of Rights, and as our freedoms are taken away one by one, they no longer work for “we the people.” Will the government be dismantled entirely? It needs it! Those who are treasonous should be punished and pay the price for their disloyalty. Open your eyes! If you can’t see it, you’re the reason we are dead! The democrats and republicans are different sides of the same coin. They have all traded our country for their gain and care nothing for the people. It is hard to digest what is going on. But God, who wants all the glory, has put a plan in place to save his children, and I guarantee you we will glorify him for his faithfulness! Wait for it! God’s perfect plan never fails.

But when Jesus heard it he said, “This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” John 11:4

Do not be caught off guard. Not only must you put on the whole armor of God, but you must also be physically prepared in the event that disaster happens. Prepare today! Get your food and water supplies, and be ready. Don’t wait; the stores will empty quickly. Remember, in school, when you had fire drills? It was exciting and terrifying at the same time. God is moving on our behalf; make no mistake; this is part of God’s plan and must happen for us to maintain our liberty. He has heard our prayers, but we may have to give up some of our comforts for a time for this to be fulfilled. 

If I’m wrong and nothing happens, those of us along the gulf coast and the Atlantic will be hurricane prepared, and if you’re in the interior, you can make a nice donation to your local shelter or line the shelves of your storm cellar. Not only do the Americans need to prepare, but my friends all over the world need to be ready. It’s better to be safe than sorry. 


I’m telling you this out of pure selfishness; if you are hungry, I will feed you; if you are thirsty, I will give you something to drink. I don’t want you to be hungry or thirsty so that I have to provide you with my supply and possibly cause my family to go hungry. 


Remember the virgins with their oil? Remember, the foolish girls ran out of it? The wise virgins that got into the wedding told the other girls to buy their own oil. Don’t be like the foolish virgins who were unprepared.


And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ Matthew 25:8-9

Many things happen under cover of darkness, and the followers of righteousness are praying hard for Jesus to turn on the light. It is not going to be a pretty sight when those things are revealed, and what we see may burn into our minds and leave a lasting impression. The hardest pill to swallow will be to see the religious leaders involved in the filthy underbelly of society, and it could be that many of us have followed such leaders. We must remember, if a church leader is exposed, he was the hired hand that Jesus spoke of in the book of John, and not the Shepard. We are to follow Jesus, not a man. 

“He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,” John 10:12-14

Buckle up, it’s going to be a rough ride, but just like a roller coaster that frightens our senses, we will land safely on the platform and exit the vehicle unscathed; that is, if we genuinely know the shepherd’s voice.

January 10

Do we really want to know what the LORD is saying? He has poured out everything we need to know onto the pages of scripture, yet we close our ears to what he says. He gives us dreams and signs, but we close our minds to their meaning. Unusual things are happening; do you question them? Do you ask why? God is revealing the truth, but few hear him, and those that do listen to him face ridicule if they tell you what they hear. Don’t believe everyone, but do believe those whose prophetic words or dreams have come to pass. Some are still dreaming, and their dreams are playing out like something on a movie screen. 

Fix your eyes on Jesus. You can no longer follow a party affiliation; they are both full of corruption and will lead you to your death. They are blind; do not follow them. Do not worship them; the devil is their god. People that we thought were good are not; representatives that led us to believe they were on the side of righteousness lied. Do not go into the tunnel; head away from darkness. That tunnel is collapsing on top of the people who are blind. You must stand for truth and righteousness, life, and liberty; you must stand for Jesus! Justice is coming, and if you don’t wake up, you’re going to miss it, and you’re going to miss Jesus.


Now is the time to prepare for a hurricane and pray for a breeze.


Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.” Some of the Pharisees near him heard these things, and said to him, “Are we also blind?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no guilt; but now that you say, ‘We see,’ your guilt remains. John 9:39-41

What’s next for believers? Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed; the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 

If there was ever a perfect time for you to start listening to someone other than humans, it might be now. Tune into the Holy Spirit, but until you begin hearing him clearly, you must read the scriptures. When I first started studying the Bible, I began by only reading the red letters. That was eye-opening! If you’re not already reading your Bible, you could start there; the red letters are quotes from Jesus. The whole Bible is God-breathed, which means it comes directly from him, so it’s all God’s words, but if you concentrate your effort to learn the ways of Jesus, your belief will grow strong, and you will know his ways!


We cannot trust the news and social media; the time is now to begin strengthening our belief in Jesus. If you know him, you won’t be fooled by those who say they are him. 


I worked as a teller at a bank for many years. I knew what real money felt like because I touched it every day. If someone brought in a counterfeit bill, I knew it right away because it would feel different. To know Jesus is to study him, know his ways, so you are aware when a counterfeit presents himself.


Joshua 1:9; Matthew 10:28

All faithful Christ-followers are disappointed in the outcome of the election; it appears that our only hope for saving the lives of the unborn and keeping our liberty has vanished; however, evil is allowed to continue with its heinous actions and to thrive. We got it wrong... but not in the way you might be thinking. We put all of our hope in a man, when, as Christ-followers, our hope lies in the hands of Jesus and him alone. Yes, we are all sickened by the disgusting crimes against children and the turning of a blind eye to it; it’s not over, and the reason I know this is that we’ve all prayed for a light to be shined in the darkness and to expose the dirty underbelly of our society; it won’t be pretty, but we will see it. Will we be able to do anything about it? I doubt it, but God can. He sees every filthy detail of the lives of those who follow Satan; I’m looking forward to the day he flushes it all down into the sewer where it belongs. These things don’t only happen in the United States; the world is involved.

Where are we on the timeline of Christ’s return? I have no idea; my mission is to bring a word of hope and salvation and to instruct believers to let go of their past and face Jesus. What I do know is that it must be close; be ready! If you're like me, you don’t want to get left behind in this madness. 


There are many signs that the end is near including this one:

And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:11-13
