Rom 1:17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31  Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.


His eternal power and Godhead has been revealed to America, so that we are without excuse.

Our willful rebellion against God has left us a nation that has conjured up vain imaginations of who God is and what He thinks,thereby making decisions that are foolish and contrary to the clear teaching of His word.

For this cause God has turned our nation over to a reprobate mind. A nation that is imprisoned by our vain and evil thoughts. Minds and actions that have succumb to every kind of wickedness, sin, deception, malicious behavior, a nation that has positioned itself as a hater of God.

A nation that has heard of God’s pending judgment, yet chooses to  shake its fist in the face of God, not only by participation of the wickedness, but by proliferation of the same through it’s laws is very unwise. For by the blessing of the upright the city is exalted; but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. America has made herself ready for “the overthrow”.

For the highest court in the land, to know what God’s word says and diametrically oppose it, is not only the epitome of rebellion, but is willfully choosing to place it’s people under God’s reprehensible judgment.  

Act 12:21  And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
Act 12:22  And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
Act 12:23  And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

It is appointed unto man once to die… then the judgment!

Oh LORD, forgive us of our sin.

the vision of malachi

Blood Moon- 10.08.2014

A prophetic view from a word from malachi-

The vision of Malachi, which he saw concerning America in the days of Bush (the elder), Clinton, Bush (the younger), and Obama, presidents of the United States of America. 
Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. 
The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but America doth not know, my people doth not consider. 
Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. 
Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. 
From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. 
Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers. 
And this United States is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city. 
Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. 
Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. 
To what purpose is your worship unto me? saith the LORD: I loathe your Easter and Christmas cantatas; and I delight not in your vacation Bible school. 
When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? 
Don’t come to Sunday morning worship services, Sunday school or mid-week Bible studies; it is iniquity, even the revival meetings. They are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. 
And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. 
Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; 
Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. 
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: 
But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. 
How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. 
Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water: 
Thy government officials are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them. 
Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies: 
And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin: 
And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counselors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. 
America shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. 
And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. 
For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. 
For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. 
And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.

I pray America will repent, if there is any healing in her bruise and if not, may God will have mercy on her.

the sign of Jonah…

Tres_Macacos_Sabios-720x340

We have all heard the ole’ adage “seeing is believing”, but I have not found that to be true when it comes to the spiritual realm.

In the Gospel of Matthew 12:22-24, one is brought unto Jesus who was possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

Matthew goes on and states “all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.” Now ‘all the people’ and the ‘Pharisees’ saw the same event, but their take on what had just happened before their very eyes was quite different.

Following this miraculous event of the man possessed with the devil, the religious folk make the following request…

 

Mat 12:38  Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
Mat 12:39  But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
Mat 12:40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Mat 12:41  The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
Mat 12:42  The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

 
In essence the religious folk were thinking, if they could see a mighty work from Jesus, it would assure them of who He said He was, but Jesus told them to be looking for THE SIGN of the prophet Jonah. Now no speculation is needed as to what the sign was? “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”.

So how did the religious leaders handle ‘this sign of Jonah’…?

Resurrection Sunday-

Mat 28:11  Now when they (the followers of Christ) were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.
Mat 28:12  And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,
Mat 28:13  Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
Mat 28:14  And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.

The events of the resurrection were met with the same willful spiritual ignorance as when the man was brought unto Him that was possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. Even though the sign was openly manifest, the religious folk could NOT comprehend.

Some time later the Pharisees and Sadducees prompted Jesus again that He might show them a sign. Again Jesus responds that the only sign that will be given is THE SIGN of the prophet Jonah.

Mat 16:1  The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
Mat 16:2  He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
Mat 16:3  And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
Mat 16:4  A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Now it would be easy for one to think that Jesus was referring to the “three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”.

I beg to differ. I think there is another sign associated with Jonah that can only be gleaned when one studies the actual account of Jonah being sent of God to that great and wicked city of Nineveh.

If you are familiar with the story you remember that Jonah did not go at first, when he was instructed of God to preach the pending judgment of Nineveh, he instead went to Joppa and boarded a ship headed to Tarshish.  It was along this journey that Jonah was introduced to the great fish and spent three days and three nights in its belly before being regurgitated back to life.

Now when he finally arrives at Nineveh after his intended cruise to Tarshish, he begins a three day journey preaching the pending judgment of God upon the city in forty days. Now there is not one mention in the scripture of any mighty work that Jonah did other than to preach the message that God had sent him to preach.

So what other sign of Jonah would have manifested itself in Nineveh? Simply the fact my friend, that when Nineveh heard of God’s most certain judgment, they BELIEVED and repented and turned from their wickedness. They simply believed that Jonah was a prophet of God, and the word of God spoken by Jonah was TRUE!

With regard to the religious leaders of Jesus’ day, they heard, yet their minds were immersed in a spiritual stupor and refused to believe. The Messiah was standing before their very eyes, having proved His validity with undeniable signs and wonders, but they did not believe, that the prophecy might be fulfilled… “he hath blinded their eyes and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart and be converted”.

It is my opinion that if you do not desire the later sign, you can not and would not believe the former.

My friend, do you know Him? Have you ever heard of Him? There is no other name given under heaven, whereby men may be saved.

    "Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me." Martin Niemoller

    Who will speak for those who can't speak for themselves?

    “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this’, does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? Will not He repay each one according to what he has done?” Proverbs 24:11-12
