April 24

The wind is blowing, but I can’t see it. I can hear it whistling, but my plants aren’t moving; they are bromeliads, so they don’t have a lot of movement. I began questioning whether or not it was the wind making that noise; then I noticed a palm tree near the ground floor with its fronds whipping around; hence I knew what I was hearing was the wind. 

How do you know if it’s God speaking to you? He doesn’t usually make a sound, but there will be tell-tell signs; when you begin to read those signs, you will realize his voice is quiet but distinctive. 

When I write this post in the mornings, I have no idea what I’m going to say ahead of time. Sometimes the Holy  Spirit directs me to scripture; other times, he prods me to look at current events, but there is always a message he wants me to relay. Though I know he has given me knowledge and wisdom, I must still listen for his voice to guide me. How do I know it’s him helping me? His voice doesn’t go against scripture.

It’s easier to hear him when there are minimal distractions. Find some time alone with God daily; go to your prayer closet, or meet with him in nature. Get away with him for a moment, and cultivate a loving relationship with him. It will restore peace to your soul; I guarantee you that it’s worth every minute.

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. Matthew 6:6

It’s not business as usual in the United States government. If Washington, DC becomes a state, it will officially close down the federal government's hold over the states as a foreign entity and its rule over us. At least that’s what I hope it means. Maybe then we will become a true constitutional republic. There will be no sovereign ground from which to rule. Yes, it may give them a couple more senators if the Senate approves it as a state; however, in my opinion, the states that initially annexed it should get it back. Will their sinister plan backfire? Absolutely! It seems like we are watching a movie! This movie has a happy ending, guaranteed! 

The television news is only a show, don’t believe it as truth. It’s all a part of the plan to program your mind. Turn it off, look around you; is it affecting your life right now? I’m pretty happy; my life is going pretty well. It’s business as usual in our household. Don’t be overcome by what you see on the screen of the “tel-lie-vision.” It’s called a “program” for a reason. Concentrate all your effort on worshipping God, praise him for his goodness, and thank him for his mercy; everything else is a nonissue.

Day 19 of counting the omer.

My tongue will sing of your word, for all your commandments are right. Let your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts. I long for your salvation, O LORD, and your law is my delight. Let my soul live and praise you, and let your rules help me. Psalms 119:172-175

April 22

Are we all slaves yet feel like we are free? The government has no money of its own but requires the people to work and pay taxes so they can spend it and do whatever they please. We know from seeing it that most people in office, but not all, are there to line their own pockets. Are we chattel? Are we owned like cattle? Are the “elected” officials put into power by the people, or is it all an illusion? 

For example, I live in a blue county that has a mask mandate. When it went into effect, I followed the chats on Facebook; very few people were for the government taking away our freedom to choose. Most were angry about them for even considering it. They did not follow the will of the people! However, because Florida’s Governor told them they couldn’t penalize the people for not wearing a mask, they put all the pressure on the corporations to do their dirty work. Hmm... it makes you wonder if they might only have power over the corporations; otherwise, the governor would have stopped it altogether. The corporations are scared to death about having to go to court over masks, so they pressured their customers to follow their rules.

If we only knew the truth about the history of our country, the idea that we might be slaves would not come as a shock. Stop following the crowd, stop listening to the news. You were given a brain for a reason; start using it.

I want to make you aware that things are not as they seem, and the only truth we can count on is God’s truth. The world is in a real mess, and if the people don’t get a clue, things will become much worse. Please ask God for wisdom.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1:5

April 21

Today is another great day! We will bask in the glow of our amazing Savior. We are privileged to be living in this time. However, there are so many weird things happening that we can’t wrap our minds around it. Why did he choose us to be a part of one of the most significant of worldwide events? He knew we could handle what would come next! Even though it may look like the world is going down in flames, it isn’t! We may experience some discomfort, but it will be okay. What we are about to face is what all humanity has looked forward to throughout history. Those who’ve chosen correctly and love the LORD our God will share true freedom and live to see it come to fruition. Do not fear when you see things happening that you don’t understand; it was all written in the Word of God and will be understood at the proper time. When you hear repeated the words “this is biblical,” it’s not a joke; it is! God’s plan, as usual, is unfolding for all to see. The truth will come out, justice will be served, and evil will be thwarted. God is faithful, and we will all be grateful and relieved once his plan falls into place!

Today is the seventeenth day of counting the Omer, but Pentecost is coming!

Consider how I love your precepts! Give me life according to your steadfast love. The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. Psalms 119:159-160

Most of my posts are for people who already know Jesus, and many do, but I’m particularly concerned for those who think they know him yet live as though they don’t. You know who I’m talking about! Those people that fill the pews on Sunday and give a “holier than thou” air, but treat others as if they are dirt. How do you get them to realize that they are lost? The trouble with them is that they think they already have salvation, but their fruit is rotting into the ground, and everyone knows it except for them. That’s a hard nut to crack! It may be that they will only realize that they need Jesus when something tragic happens, and that’s sad. No one wants to go through trials, but sometimes that’s the only way to show them that they can’t do it on their own and that they need to humble themselves at the hand of Jesus. It’s not that hard to do, and it creates a change of heart that is visible to others. We can only hope that something we say or do will prompt them to seek Jesus with their whole heart. Beyond that, all we can do is pray and hope the Holy Spirit touches their heart.

Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness. Romans 10:1-3

April 19

It’s nice to wake up to rain, but not so nice to think your home is going to get blown away! A storm came through last night, and the wind was so mighty that I was concerned that everything would be a mess this morning, but it’s intact and no damage done. I shouldn’t be surprised though, I began praying for our neighbors and us immediately, and I believe God answered me. The wind didn’t even move my umbrella! I haven’t seen my other properties yet, but I’m confident that they are also acceptable. Before we went to bed, the Emergency Broadcast System warned of possible tornado activity. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen an EBS warning; it was cause for alarm! We changed the channel, and it was on every station! It’s great to know it’s up and running and that we can count on being informed of other emergencies if necessary. If you hear a warning and do not take precautions, it becomes your fault if life doesn’t turn out as planned. Pay attention! Act! Heed the warnings on the pages of scripture; it’s for your benefit and is the Emergency Broadcast System of God. When judgment day comes, and it could be soon, you want to be ready!

Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:11-12

April 18

Are you awake yet? There is much going on we should all be concerned about, yet many are still asleep. Someone keeps hitting the snooze button and then dozing off again. The world is not normal! The United States is not normal! The New World Order, as spoken of in Daniel and Revelation, is well underway, and we are all doomed to become slaves to the few elites controlling the world; they have themselves taken the mark and are followers of Satan. These people are the worst of the worst and are evil beyond our comprehension. There is no need for you to worry about taking the mark; Jesus has already placed his seal upon you! There are some good people out there working to head off the beast at the pass, but they need us to keep fighting with them! Please stay in the battle, my fellow troops! The Almighty hears your prayers. It’s our cries for help that are bringing down the forces of evil and keeping the heavenly beings slaying the beast! You cannot sleep right now. We need all warriors for this war.

And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22
