Then God blessed Adam and Eve,
And told them have many,
Many, many children,
Enough to fill the earth,
Even Montana!
To be masters of birds and beasts,
Fruits, herbs, all bearing seeds,
There for everyone to eat.
A Garden so precious, fragrant and rare,
Meant to be planted everywhere.
No death, no sickness, great food!
God said it was good.
Well, we know the story
Of how all that changed,
The snake in the Tree,
Then came the rain.
Afterwards, Noah planted again.
And again God blessed them,
Told him and his sons,
Be fruitful and multiply,
Fill the whole earth
With your little ones!
Now, after the flood
The beasts became food
And God did not say
That was good.
It did not take long
As they journeyed from the East,
Of Eden, that is,
To a plain called Shinar.
There, the “shining one”, Nimrod,
Began to build a city and a tower.
We know how that went over,
God destroyed the tower,
Confounded the languages,
Scattered everyone about
Over the whole earth
As was His original plan.
What have we done since then?
Built multitudes of cities
Chock full of towers
All over the earth.
We call them skyscrapers.
Nimrod wanted his tower
With its top in the heavens,
He said let’s make a name for ourselves!
Our skyscrapers have names,
Some of them are Trump!
The good jobs are in them,
The ones we aspire to,
Bankers, lawyers, money moguls,
All hard to get hired to.
The higher up your office is,
The better the view,
All of your associates
Either envy or admire you.
Why, you tower above
The common folk
Who want to be where you are
But are too broke!
You walk all around
Through your hushed, plush lairs,
Riding around in elevators,
Too many stairs!
You never think, or just push aside,
What if the power goes out
And you are trapped inside,
A box in a shaft, hanging from a cable,
A hundred stories up,
Are you trusting in luck?
Yes, let’s build towers,
One is not enough!

Twins would be better,
We would be so blessed!
Fathers and mothers
Could engage in world trade there,
While their young children
Attend school and daycare!
That is if there are children,
They can be tough on careers.
So what has changed
In the years intervening,
From the tower of Babel
To the one in Pisa leaning?
The Arche de Triomphe,
The Empire State,
Sears, Chrysler, Flatiron,
Shanghai, Eiffel, Golden Gate?
That last one is a bridge
But still pretty great.
So what has changed?
Does God now approve
Of every building project
We choose to do?
And could those buildings
Be part of a trap,
Keeping children
From their parent’s lap?
While making it easier
To look down on people
From an exalted perch
Gazing out a big window
At flying birds?
What if the building is bombed?
What if a tsunami comes?
A huge earthquake ?
What escape route do you plan to take?
Can you fly like a bird?
Land safely in a tree?
If the building were on fire
Would you jump to be free?
God has not changed
Since the days of Babel,
But the towers have multiplied,
The children have scattered.
Are none of us concerned?
Have we not learned?
The sky belongs to God
And when we start scraping it,
We get burned.

A powerful vision concerning the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and its reform, restoration and, transformation.

Rampant unrepentant sin…pervasive horrid perversions…have wearied our own dear sweet Lord. Punishment will arrive. America will receive just recompense from a faithful God who warned and warned that His words are true and righteous. This will help explain why America is not mentioned as being a key player on the world stage in Revelation. Twilight is here, and at the appointed time the midnight clock will chime and dark bitter chaotic times will arrive on our shores. God have mercy on our souls.

The Master's Voice

“For who will have pity on you, O Jerusalem?
Or who will bemoan you?
Or who will turn aside to ask how you are doing?
You have forsaken Me,” says the Lord,
“You have gone backward.
Therefore I will stretch out My hand against you and destroy you;
I am weary of relenting!

I will winnow them with a winnowing fan in the gates of the land;
I will bereave them of children;
I will destroy My people,
Since they do not return from their ways.
Their widows will be increased to Me more than the sand of the seas;
I will bring against them,
Against the mother of the young men,
A plunderer at noonday;
I will cause anguish and terror to fall on them suddenly.

“She languishes who has borne seven;
She has breathed her last;
Her sun has gone down

ball n chainI see a runner coming to the beginning of the 4th lap of a race. There is a large ball and chain on the right ankle and it has a name on it. This person has kept on running the race as best as possible through 3 watches or laps of a very dark night and now it is the morning watch. This runner has cried out for the Lord to move in the situation, to bring deliverance of this weight that slows down all progress and impedes the freedom of the runner to run his appointed course. But the Lord says that this ball and chain has built much spiritual muscle and strength in you and this is why I have allowed it to remain for this long season. Now I come to cut it off and you will be released in an instant. From that moment on, you will run faster and more powerfully than ever before and complete your race for My glory. Understand My ways, child. Nothing is without definite purpose; no onslaught allowed unless it works together for your ultimate good. I know the appointed course set before you in this morning watch, each bend and turn, and you will have need of the muscle and stamina you have developed in the night of trial.

This runner represents the Lord’s final relay company; the sons and daughters of the morning watch and each one has had a ball and chain with a unique name on it. For some, it has been ‘sickness’. For others, it is a tailor-made thorn in the flesh or harassing relationship. For yet others, it has been incredible demonic resistance pushing against every step in a forward direction. But just as resistance training is used to build strong and powerful athletes and sportsmen, so too the Spirit has allowed this resistance training to furnish you with all you will need in the season ahead. You will finish strong.

You may feel weak and exhausted now as you come to this 4th lap and your heart may be failing you at the thought of yet another round of exhausting endurance training. You say, “I have struggled to run with men. How will I ever keep up with the horses as they ride forth to battle?” But the Lord says, “No, this season is different. Now I remove the training aids. Now I set aside the ball and chain. Now I release you to run swift and sure with your eyes on the prize. And you will feel the wind of the Spirit in your hair and you will lift your head and run the course with joy, filled with the power of the Spirit. This is what the dark night was all about, my child. This is why I have hidden Myself from you at times – to make you press in further; to make you pursue me relentlessly, to forge in your heart a determination that no resistance could quench as you pursue the Lover of your soul. Against this passion, the enemy has no antidote. Seeing this fire of zeal, his cohorts tremble and flee, for they know the One with eyes like fire and they fear His dread champions.

Do not measure yourself by your performance in the training days when the weight of resistance weighed you down and wearied your soul. In fact, do not measure yourself at all. Measure Me and the power of My might and run like David did towards Goliath.

1 Sam 17:45  Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied.

From the womb of the morning, my overcomers are released. From the springboard of all the enemy has thrown at them, they leap forward into their tailor-made assignments, with the battle- cry of the Blood of the Lamb upon their lips. Against this, all darkness flees and the gates of hell will not prevail. Take the Kingdom; possess the fullness of the inheritance I have bought for you. Ask of Me and I will give you the nations which lie before you. Run, My warriors, run the race set before you. Cast  aside the weight, for I have broken its hold upon you.”

Beloved, take a deep breath and press through. Fix your eyes like a flint on the prize of the upward calling.

Php 3:12  Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. Php 3:13  I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, Philip 3:14  I press on toward the goal to win the prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.

Forget the 3 training watches of the night. Press forward to seize eagerly that for which Christ Jesus laid hold of you. There is an upward call sounding forth. Come up higher, see things from the throne’s perspective. Like horses released from their starting gates, the Morning Watch runners are being released from their training season. It is time.

How strange this “FIRE” of God is in the reality of consuming the lives of those whom He calls to a walk in His Fire!

The Lord God would say to you this day; “Prepare, for the time is near. Prepare your hearts, judge your own and make sure it is right with Me. If you have anything against another forgive them and do what you can to make it right. Stay close to Me in My Word, and read…

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all you get, get Understanding. (Proverbs 4:7)

Wisdom is the gift God used to make the world:

By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding He set the heavens in place, by His knowledge the watery depths were broken open, and the clouds dripped with dew.… – (Proverbs 3:19 -20)

The Bible says our God has limitless, perfect, WHOLESOME, and total knowledge of everything.

Wisdom is the gift God used to make the world:

The Bible says our God has limitless, perfect, WHOLESOME, and total knowledge of everything. His eyes see equally well in light and dark (Psalm 139:12). All creation is ‘naked and open’ before Him (Hebrews 4:13). Scripture is clear that wise people build their ‘house’ (i.e. lives) according to wisdom (Proverbs 24:3). Therefore it stands to reason that God wants His children to be WISE. He wants them to study hard and search the Bible as the Bereans did: during Apostle Paul’s day this tribe…
