“My friends, the message is that Jesus can forgive your sins! The Law of Moses could not set you free from all your sins. But everyone who has faith in Jesus is set free. Make sure that what the prophets have said doesn’t happen to you.” (Acts 14: 38-40) Followed by the palindrome number Acts 14:41 (same forwards and backwards):

“LOOK YOU PEOPLE WHO MAKE FUN OF GOD! BE AMAZED AND DISAPPEAR. I (GOD) WILL DO SOMETHING THAT YOU WON’T BELIEVE, EVEN IF SOMEONE TELLS YOU ABOUT IT!” Those of us who are waiting and watching in expectancy for our Lord’s soon return will react with awe and wonder at what He has planned to bring forth His children from their “desert” John the Baptist-type training grounds and into glory. Oh how marvelous will be His end time evangelists out in the streets instead of holed up in church buildings. The early Acts church will return to earth to preach again, “Repent and be baptized. The day of the Lord is near!” Solemn prophetic warnings should take diligence to heed them. “Believe in the Lord your God, so ye shall be established,- believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper” (II Chronicles 20.-20). (Like the equivalent of having 20-20 eyesight!)

I have noticed that God has been using these same exact words repeatedly with today’s prophets when he talks about the “suddenly” events being readied for a sinful world that did NOT listen to the prophets God has sent, both modern and reaching far back into the Old Testament. Remember, faith without obedience and repentance is dead. We are to be so in love with Jesus that we can’t wait to please him with our good “fruits of the Spirit.”

Read the following visit by Erin to Father God @    He gives her a note that says she would not believe what He is about to do. (There it is again) Then gives an intriguing set of dates: 120 years for Noah’s generation to repent while he build the ark, and a double portion of time for America to repent, 240 years, which just ended at July 4, 2016.

Should make us all be sitting on the edge of our seats, “ticket” in hand which is our pure heart, clean hands, righteousness over worldliness and belief that Jesus is the only gate on the narrow path to Father God. When will today’s “ark” door close? When the “suddenlies” and the seal judgments begin? What would lost humanity give for just a few more minutes to decide to have Jesus as their good shepherd, strong tower?  Christ alone, cornerstone.


(My note: Holy Spirit spoke to me audibly at waking and said “Choose righteousness over worldliness, simplify and get out of debt.” The above post made me reflect on righteousness as an actual covering for our body: armor against the enemy of our soul: Satan.)

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin brings disgrace upon any people. (Proverbs 14:34)

The breastplate a Roman soldier wore was made of bronze or leather and covered the entire torso. This piece of armor protected the heart.

Burn for Jesus…do not be found “lukewarm” when your life is reviewed! What could compare in tragedy to turning down God’s offer of salvation through his Son to pursue worldly distractions and be so busy you could not contribute to bringing Heaven to earth for His Kingdom WILL COME!


The title of this post was inspired by Glynda’s latest words on 3/19/17.  It’s important that we remain strong in our faith and not be found lukewarm when the Lord returns or it is our time to leave this earthly body.

Some of the scriptural references came from the following link:

Revelation3_LukewarmRevelation 3:15-16

15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were cold or hot. 16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth.

13 Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth and with their lips do honor Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the precept of men,

Why Do We Fear the Fire of God?

In one of His most confrontational statements Jesus said, “I have come to bring fire on the earth.”

There are times in the Scripture in which fire is a symbol of judgment but in the great majority of references fire is used to point out God’s divine presence.  His words make it clear that the meaning behind His words, “I have come to bring fire” refers to something more than a cozy flame to cuddle up to!

In this unique statement from Jesus the fire He is speaking of is not literally fire as in flames but a spiritual representation.  He is speaking of the burning, exciting, dynamic presence of God in the lives of people.

The fire that illuminates His incredible presence, produces unlimited power, burns away the dross and impurities and attracts people to Him.  That is the Fire of God.

The Fire of God is not given to make us cozy……
But holy, and to stir us up.

When Moses saw the burning bush God first warned him that he was standing on holy ground, and then told him of the great thing He was about to do, to release Israel from the captivity of Pharaoh,  (Exodus 3).

When Isaiah was in the temple and it filled with smoke of the burning holiness of God, his awareness of being unclean came first, before God equipped him to be His messenger.

When God’s fire comes to the hearts of men and women their spirits are freed from the awful bondage of idolatry.

When God’s fire comes, the enemy will be destroyed.  That is why we should pray, “O, Lord – send the fire.  Your fire.  Send your consuming, changing, restoring, victorious fire!”

We sing about the fire of God in many of our hymns.

There is a song I have known for years that says,

“Oh, Lord, you’re beautiful. Your face is all I seek.
For when your eyes are on this child, your grace abounds to me.

O Lord, please light the fire, which once burned bright and clear,
Replace the lamp of my first love, that burned with holy fear.”

Lord, send your fire!

May we sense and know Your burning, exciting, dynamic presence in our lives and among Your people.”

“Oh How You Fear the Fire!”  – a Prophetic Word

“It is as if you think that I might truly do something unloving to burn you or disfigure you!

I AM a God of fire!  Yes!  But a HOLY fire! 
 A fire that burns away wood, hay, and dead scraps lying around 
in your heart.  They are littering the places that I want to bring My Glory into!

When My Fire pursues you it drives away any voice or lust or 
any other enemy of your soul!

You will come to a place where 
you no longer need to have the splash of fanfare or the 
rumblings of the earth to know that I AM in your presence!

The Fire brings you to a place just like it did Moses!
  He saw My Holy Fire in a bush on a hill.

I spoke to Him and told Him He was on HOLY ground!”

“Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?”
  Jeremiah 23:29.

“I was a still, small voice, speaking out from inside of a fire!

I AM calling out to you!  Be quiet! 
 Silence the noise around you!

Get quiet with Me. Put away the busyness that you get caught up into!”

“After the “Fire” a still small voice,” 1 Kings 19:12.

“My Passion Fire is calling out to You!  I have things I want to whisper into your spirit-man!

I have words that will sustain you through all of the
 fiery trials and tests you will inevitably pass through!”

“If this is so, 
 Then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials,”2 Peter 2:9.

“If you want the Fire of I the Living God to be evident
 in your ministry, whether it is in the marketplace, the home,
or abroad, listen to My still small voice.

It will in turn resound like a roaring ocean to those whom 
you will minister to.”

“O Lord of hosts, 
 How blessed is the man who trusts in You!”
   Psalms 84:12.

The issue that everyone on earth deals with day in and day out.

Putting your trust in things that last for only a season or a few years can be very risky and very disappointing.

I have told My people to trust in ME with ALL of their heart
 and I will make their paths straight.  Yet – continually they put
 their trust in people, and idols made of gold, positions of power, 
and in themselves and invented doctrines of seasonal passing!

Lasting blessings can only come from trusting in Me.

The real issue is that you don’t really think that I will do
 what I say I will do!

So…  You take it into your own hands!

When you finally lay down your need to control those all around you and trust in Me, then you will be blessed!  Blessed with safety, peace of mind and above all, 
blessed by My pleasure in your resting in My plan.”

“See to it that you do not refuse HIM who is speaking!”Hebrews 12:25.

“Oh how many times My people have said to Me, 
 “Later LORD!  I will do it Later!”?

You exhort others to obey quickly and yet you will drag your
 feet and put Me off until you “feel” like following through!”

“It is the LORD your God you must follow, 
and him you must revere. 
 Keep his commands and obey him; 
serve him and hold fast to him,” 
  Deuteronomy 13:4.

“Do not refuse Me when I speak to you when I send you to do
 something in My Name!

You might fear for your own reputation, 
but a life could be hanging in the balance!

You do not have the luxury of “denying your King!”

If you wish to be caught up into higher dimensions in My Spirit, 
and, if you long for the “deep that calls unto deep”, be faithful 
to ACT when I give you a command!!”

“You are my portion, O LORD; 
 I have promised to obey your words,”   Psalm 119:57.

“I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.”   Psalm 119:60

The Coming Latter Rain – “What Once Was Hard Will Now Be Easy”


As I was lying in bed reading around 8 pm last night, something caught the corner of my eye to the right. I looked to the doorway that leads to the hall way and had an impression in the spirit of a large angel who had descended to stand there. Then I felt like I saw him in my spirit come into the room and stand in the corner by the door. He continues to stand there.

I asked the Lord if I was seeing an angel and I heard yes.

This is what I then heard from the Lord Jesus:

“Do not grow weary. I am here. I love you. Don’t strive. Give up and rest. I am here to bring you good news as there is great joy in heaven of what is to come. A release is coming unlike anything that has ever come to the earth in any generation. The latter rain is coming and there will be such a deluge for an extended period that God’s children will begin to change.

A new normal will set in. What once was hard will now be easy. What once brought stress will bring joy. It’s like the internal wiring will change in those who have prepared, in those who have laid down their lives to follow me.

I am coming. I am coming back to live and you must proclaim My return. This is BIG. This is true and this is the most important news anyone in this generation can hear right now. I am coming, but before I do, there are so many things that must be remade. You know this as I’ve spoken of this before.

The scheming of the enemy must be brought to light. My children must be given an opportunity to see the deception for themselves. Then, they can choose who they will follow. Every person has a choice to make, when all is brought out in the open. Will you choose light or continued darkness?

Satan is very busy stirring up chaos and disorder. I will bring him out into the open and expose him for who he is – a liar, and a thief, and a murderer. He has successfully used his own pride and lust for vengeful acts to lead so many astray. His days are numbered. Only My Father in heaven knows the number but I can tell you it is short. Time is so very short.

Soon you are going to see a city, once the “apple of my eye,” fall. (I felt like the reference to the Apple referred to the Big Apple, New York City). There will be utter destruction and many will cry out. I long for them to cry out to Me and turn to Me.

You must tell them that I am the same I Am that created the heavens and the earth. I am the same I Am that knit them together in their mother’s womb. I Am that I Am. I never cease to call out to My children. I know them by name, each and every one, but so many do not know My name, Yeshua, Jesus, The Messiah, The King above all Kings, The Lord and giver of life. The truth is that they are My treasure. There was nothing in heaven or earth that did not belong first to Me. Satan desires them to be taken from Me, snatched from My loving embrace. My love is relentless and My mercy is without end, but there is coming an end to all things on this earth as the days draw to a close. The one gift I cannot give is more time.

The deception runs deep. Where can you trust? You cannot trust any man to speak My truth so stop looking to man, any man, to be your savior, apart from Me. No politician, no doctor, no lawyer, no landlord, no mortician has the answers or even knows the true problem. Sin. Sin is the only problem to solve, and I already did that 2000 years ago. Look to My gospel and see the work that I did recorded for you. It is not difficult to comprehend. It is all laid out in black and white for you to see. We, My Father, Holy Spirit and Word, chose you before the foundations of the earth. We chose you for relationship. Of course, life feels hollow without Me. You were meant to walk with Me all the days of your life. You were meant to commune with Me, to sup with Me, to rest with Me.

Depression, Anxiety, over-eating, shopping, and on and on… all these things are symptoms of a greater cause. Lack of Me in your life causes every part of your life to be off-center because I am to be in your core. I am the anchor for your soul. Do you not see? Do you not hear? Do you not feel? I am never apart from you, but it is your choice to experience Me.

You have been conditioned for self-reliance, but self-reliance is a lie. You can only truly live by relying upon me for EVERYTHING. My word shouts the truth that it is I that provides for the birds of the air, the fish of the sea, the flowers and the grass. How much more will I provide for you, My chosen son or daughter.

So, choose to walk with Me. Right now, close your eyes, and see that it is I, the God of the universe, that takes your hand and holds your heart. It is in My embrace that you will find true peace.

Deception. Everywhere you look. Your media is a den of thieves, a den of liars. Your leaders lie and cheat to maintain or grow their power. Your educators twist truth so that it is no longer truth, and children’s heads are filled with rubbish. Stop sending your kids to school just to be filled up with manipulated facts and twisted rules. Instead, hold them to your hearts and breathe new life into them.

The youngest generation are being so badly abused by the system of education that exists today in this nation. The rulers desire robots and minions, soulless, empty, broken children without true hope. If I was to allow the current education system to go on, we would see in the next twenty years, suicide rates that would quadruple.  (The Lord commonly speaks to me about education because It is the work He has called me to.)

Seek Me first. You know not to go your own way. Seek Me at the start of each day for your marching orders and I will be faithful to lay out your day. I will bless your days and cause them to be wildly successful, unlike anything you could do on your own.  I will bless you and keep you.  I will make My face to shine upon you and give you peace!”

God has given mankind the privilege  of partnering with Him for the last 2,000 years since Jesus Christ was resurrected and returned to heaven to bring the good news of salvation to our lost world. “God has done it all! He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others. What we mean is that God was in Christ, offering peace and forgiveness to the people of this world. And he has given us the work of sharing his message about peace.” (2 Corinth. 5: 18-19)

Turn to God, your father, before the coming day when disaster strikes and the age of grace ends. Just as this era had a definite beginning point with Christ’s atonement for our sin at Calvary’s cross in Jerusalem, there will be a definite end when this age of grace closes and the judgments against people who continually choose evil and mock Holy Spirit begins. The eternal God longs that none of us would perish without a freewill choice to accepts his salvation, freely offered. Jesus has been knocking on the “door” (or entry point to your soul) of your heart for your whole lifetime. “We (first century apostles of Jesus) were sent to speak for Christ, and God is begging you to listen to our message. We speak for Christ and sincerely ask you to make peace with God. Christ never sinned! But God treated him as a sinner, so that Christ could make us acceptable to God.” (2 Corinth. 5: 20-21)

Being a stubborn, arrogant fool and rejecting God will have eternal consequences – forever and ever and ever. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1)

Do not align yourself with scoffers and mockers of God. Recently at the Decision America tour with Franklin Graham in Madison, Wisconsin, people from the FFRF (Freedom From Religion Foundation) were holding signs that boldly proclaimed: UNABASHED ATHEIST – NOT AFRAID OF BURNING IN HELL. They may not be afraid of it, but their rejection of hell does not make it any less real. People who have been granted visits to hell in the 21st Century as part of his mercy and telling of truth have come back to earth very, very afraid of that place of eternal damnation and torment where the body is given over to those very same demons of destruction and lying that were embraced by the arrogant on earth by virtue of their rejection of Holy Spirit. Some form of spirit will be within you or against you upon cessation of your earthly body. Choose that which is holy and pure and good. Now I am begging you as well as your creator, God.

“The Lord…is longsuffering towards us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”(2 Peter 3:9)
