Could David Wilkerson's Death Be a Sign of the Coming Prophecy Given in 2009?

I just got this message today that short of two days ago, on April 27, 2011, David Wilkerson, founder of the Time Square Church in New York City, Teen Challenge ministry and author of the "Cross and the Switchblade" has died in a car crash in Tyler, Texas on U.S. Route 175. His wife Gwen was with him and she is in critical condition. 

In a radio broadcast and a Christian blog posting the Lord had spoke about some of the older saints would be going home to be with Him this year.  Is this just the beginning of what the Lord said would come to past? I do believe it with all my heart it truly is. It is a sign for sure that the Lord's words are true and the His words are being fulfilled according to what he said. 

My condolences go out to the Wilkerson family and the Time Square Church who has lost great pastor in the Lord. It is now a time that the Lord shall raise up new disciples in His name and by His Mighty Hand. These are known by Him and He knows them by name and they know their calling. He shall rise up a humble and contrite hearts that shall obey His will and carry out the mission He has set forth. 

David  had did the mission the Lord had told him to do, then he died. Rev. Wilkerson's last blog post stated the following: "To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights," he wrote, "and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, `I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident."

David Wilkerson was born May 19, 1931 in Hammond, Indiana, to a line of Pentecostal preachers. After he was ordained in the Assemblies of God, he married Gwendolyn Carosso who served beside him in ministry for 57 years. Wilkerson served as a pastor in small churches in Scottdale and Philipsburg, Pennsylvania, until he saw a photograph in Life Magazine in 1958 of seven New York City teenagers charged with murder. He later wrote that as he felt the Holy Spirit move him with compassion, he was drawn to go to New York in February 1958. It was then that he began a street ministry to young drug addicts and gang members, which he continued into the 1960s. In  1958, he founded Teen Challenge, an evangelical Christian addiction recovery program affiliated with the Assemblies of God, with a network of Christian social and evangelizing work centers. Wilkerson gained national recognition after he co-authored the book The Cross and the Switchblade in 1963 with John and Elizabeth Sherrill. The book became a best-seller, with over 50 million copies in over thirty languages, and is included in Christianity Today's "Top 50 Books That Have Shaped Evangelicals". In the book, Wilkerson tells of the conversion of gang member Nicky Cruz, who later became an evangelist himself and wrote the autobiographical Run Baby Run. In 1970, Cross and the Switchblade was turned into a Hollywood movie starring Pat Boone as Wilkerson and Erik Estrada as Cruz.

In 1967, Wilkerson began Youth Crusades, an evangelistic ministry aimed at teenagers whom Wilkerson called "goodniks"—middle-class youth who were restless and bored. His goal was to prevent them from becoming heavily involved with drugs, alcohol, or violence. Through this ministry, the CURE Corps (Collegiate Urban Renewal Effort) was founded. It was intended to be something of a Christian version of the Peace Corps and Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA). In 1971, Wilkerson moved his ministry headquarters to Lindale, Texas, where he founded World Challenge, an organization whose mission is to promote and spread the Gospel throughout the world. Wilkerson believed that In 1986, while walking down 42nd Street in New York City at midnight, the Holy Spirit called him to return to New York City and to raise up a ministry in Times Square. He founded and became the pastor of Times Square Church, which opened its doors in October 1987. The church first occupied rented auditoriums in Times Square (Town Hall and the Nederlander Theater), later moving to the historic Mark Hellinger Theatre, which the ministry purchased in 1989 and in which it has operated ever since. From the 1990s, Wilkerson focused his efforts to encourage pastors and their families throughout the world to "renew their passion for Christ". In his own words:  "I've been an evangelist for 50 years, but I didn't want to preach to pastors until I had gray hair, until I'd pastored. Now after 15 years of pastoring, sharing the hurts, pains, and difficulties of the ministry as a pastor, I felt the Lord finally release me, that I might have something to say."

Wilkerson and his wife Gwen moved to New York City at the inception of Times Square Church in 1987, and in 2006 began splitting their time between New York and Texas. They have four children and eleven grandchildren. His son Gary Wilkerson has also begun to gain recognition as a Christian minister and evangelist. At this writing, Gary, his son, write in Brother David's blog, " Like King David of old, after having served God’s purpose, he died. I know if my father were able to encourage you with his words today, he would invite you to give your all to Jesus, to love God deeply and to give yourself away to the needs of others. The works he began outlive him. We can all attest to his impacting us—not only in his preaching, writing and founding of world-changing ministries, but in his love, devotion, compassion and ability to stir our faith for greater works."

His last blog entry: Wednesday, April 27, 2011
To believe when all means fail is exceedingly pleasing to God and is most acceptable. Jesus said to Thomas, “You have believed because you have seen, but blessed are those that do believe and have not seen” (John 20:29).
Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer—who trust beyond hope when all means have failed.
Someone has come to the place of hopelessness—the end of hope—the end of all means. A loved one is facing death and doctors give no hope. Death seems inevitable. Hope is gone. The miracle prayed for is not happening.
That is when Satan’s hordes come to attack your mind with fear, anger, overwhelming questions: “Where is your God now? You prayed until you had no tears left. You fasted. You stood on promises. You trusted.”
Blasphemous thoughts will be injected into your mind: “Prayer failed. Faith failed. Don’t quit on God—just do not trust him anymore. It doesn’t pay!”
Even questioning God’s existence will be injected into your mind. These have been the devices of Satan for centuries. Some of the godliest men and women who ever lived were under such demonic attacks.
To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights—and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, “I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident. It was no failure on your part. Hold fast. Let me embrace you in your hour of pain.”
Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail—his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world.

 In those days of "The Cross and the Switchblade" the pace of events was slower as the Lord's coming was much farther off. There was no e-mail and no Internet so news travelled slowly.  If you wanted to know something you had to wait for the book to come out and then get a copy and read it. If you were really in a hurry you might be able to find something in a magazine. Then it was rumoured that David had received some kind of vision. A lot of people said "he's really flipped". I got a copy of the book ("The Vision") and read it. I believed that in principle God could cause someone to prophesy in His name but had He really spoken through David? The style of the book seemed intermediate between a direct literal word from the Lord and the author's personal convictions of what he believed God had shown him. The book was written with an urgency that suggested that the events described were supposed to happen rather soon, yet the events were so extreme, almost outlandish, that an immediate fulfillment seemed rather unlikely. God's timescale is a little different from ours. He is very old and very patient. He sees the beginning from the end. Although we may not see the fulfillment as soon as we expect nevertheless His word always comes true.   According to www.wilkersonpublications.com the message that David's vision should be dated to April 1973. So it was exactly or almost exactly 38 years before his death, which is a number of some biblical significance.  The day he died was Wednesday 27th April. Owing to the 2 day difference between the Gregorian and Julian calendars this was the anniversary of Wednesday 29th April AD 33. This was the day before the the last supper; it was the day Lord departed from the temple and gave the Olivet discourse to His disciples. In this He described the events and judgments that will come at the end of the age, and gave the parable of the fig tree and other parables too. (For dates in the life of the Lord Jesus refer to "The Restored Vision" by A. E. Ware). You see the day David died was the very same day the Lord Himself told his disciples the things that He showed David.   That day was also notable for the ferocity of the tornados that killed many people in the US. Many have noted the link between storms in the US and God's anger concerning the US's actions in relation to the land of Israel. There is a big clue in the location where David died. I am not too hot on US topography, but the region is known as Palestine and the report of the crash was published in the Palestine Herald. The site is about a mile from the outflow of Lake Palestine.   That makes 3 times now that the Lord has given us signs highlighting 'Palestine':     The destruction of the space shuttle Columbia on 1st February 2003. The first reports of falling debris came from the town Palestine, Texas. It seemed to speak of the impending destruction of America over the 'Palestine' issue.     The rescue of Jessica Lynch from Palestine in West Virginia on 1st April 2003. The thing happened just across the way from the ruins of Ur where Abram's family lived, presumably including her biblical namesake Iscah. The rescue ended with the graves being emptied and both the living and the dead being taken up into the air. And now David's death, in the region of Palestine, Texas.   I think the location of David's passing shows its importance as a sign and should remind us of the significance of the earlier events. I also think the date strongly underlines the significance of his message. I think we have to view it as being the Lord authenticating the message that David gave us. I also think it is also a big hint that these things will happen soon.

Jesus Spoke to My Heart to Tell You

  • Currently listening 

    In my lifetime on several occasions I've had dreams that I knew were from the Lord. I believe that the Father gives us who love Him dreams and visions to know His purpose for us. It is written in Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:17  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. The prophet Daniel was given the understanding of dreams and visions - Daniel 1:17. As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
    These dreams the Lord showed me I feel His Spirit wants me to tell you. In one dream, I stood before the glorious city that shined like the sun behind the gate gazing at the splendor of this indescribable place. And behind me I feel the heat so hot I could stand near it. As I turn to look there was a great pit so deep and black all you could see was the heat from the fire and the smoke. In this dream the Lord showed me of the presence of a real Heaven and a real Hell. I tell you my friend you don't want to go to Hell. It's REAL and extremely HOT! And it burned FOREVER and EVER! The Judgment will be FINAL. There's no turning back. Do NOT be deceived by no one and let no one take your crown from you.
    In another dream, the Lord revealed Himself to me on the ancient streets of Jerusalem. Don't ask me how? I just knew where I was. I stood face-to-face with the Lord Jesus. In this dream, His arms were strapped to a crossbeam that was bearing heavily across His back. He looked beaten and bruised. Many of you may have pictured Him as weak. But the Jesus I saw in my dream was a very strong looking man with the great power and love that flowed from His eyes. As I looked upon Him. His eyes seemed to be fixed on me and nothing else. Suddenly something fell on my heart, a love so deep that I ran to Him. I threw my arms around his strong shoulders. I didn't want to let go. I remember saying, "Please, don't go!" And Jesus answered me, "I have to do this." Then somehow I can't explain he walked away out of my arms and disappeared carrying the crossbeam across His back with Him. It was plain Christ Jesus had to do this for you and for me. He is our random for a debt we could NEVER repay. As He looked at me with love in His eyes. He looks at you the same way my friend. He calls all of us today to be His children—to live in His coming Kingdom.
    Another dream, I was taken up into the heavens and there I saw many wonders in God's vast universe. The universe is far beyond our comprehension. It is the glory of our God—the stars, the planets, awesome life within it. (Many are being deceived by the UFO phenomena which are Satanic in origin. Do NOT believe them!) For years the government suppressed NASA had lied to the public about what is out there. Now, I tell you the mysteries of the Lord Jesus Christ are REAL to those who believe. The Lord took me to the opening of Heaven there was a sky I've never seen in my life of my life on earth. The sky was a vivid blues, lovely colors, and the clouds were beautiful cotton billows of white. And I saw the angels flying towards the great city. I had more than one vision in my dreams about Heaven. The city was alive along streets of gold— crystal clear as glass. Everything was clean and white—free of corruption of any kind. There are so many wonders that I saw there I stood in awe of it all. I saw people of the past living within the walls of God's Holy sanctuary—eternal souls in the presence of the Father and His Son Christ Jesus. I saw children, babies who had been aborted were living safety within this beautiful holy place. The children there were perfect, all were well, happy, and at peace. In this place I saw Jesus His presence was everywhere. He showed me beautiful gardens and things that you would never dream of. It is written, 1 Corinthians 2:9 -
    But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  
    This was the last dream the Lord had showed me. This dream I saw the sky as it was in my prior dreams. The beauty of the colors were to behold.  I was breathless in awe and fear. The Lord I believe reveals to me that the skies of this world are destroyed by the wicked, deceptive devices (chemtrails, weather manipulation) of Satan and his demon armies (the Illuminati). In my dream the clouds in the sky split apart and the Lord Christ Jesus appeared to me in a flash before me in the sky. His majesty was full of the glory of Heaven around Him. His angels were all around Jesus—praising Him. I heard a voice, the voice of the Holy Spirit say, "Look up for your redemption draws nigh."-These were the words that come from the Gospel of Luke 21:28 (And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh). I called out to Jesus, "Remember me Lord when you come." Then in a twinkling of an eye He disappeared in the clouds. This is Jesus' warning to all who live on the earth. The time of Christ's coming is near. His words are clear. He is coming back! Are you ready to meet Him? REPENT!—for the Kingdom of God is at hand. This world is passing away and all that is in it. Satan's days are numbered and comes in great wrath. It's time to take a stand with the Lord Jesus Christ and separate yourselves from this world that is heading for destruction. REPENT! And trust in Jesus to save you, turn from your sin and follow Him.
    A Watchman on the Wall
    PRAY for America!
    Revelation 18:4 -
    And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

The Great Deception

Cover of "The Secret Symbols of the Dolla...Cover of The Secret Symbols of the Dollar Bill

I’m writing this to all of you for those who have ears who hear, let him or her hear these words. We’re all living in a time that Jesus Christ warned about the coming time of deception. In His Olivet Discourse written in Matthew 24, and the “abomination of desolation” spoken of by the prophet Daniel. We’re living in that time. Look at all around you and on the evening news. Evil is abounding everywhere you look. There is a menace that lurks behind the curtains of White House in Washington, D.C. and the Bush Administration. It all began much earlier in the history of this country so compelling and complex are the workings of this deception, it boggles the mind of the smartest citizen in United States. Some it can shock and dismay. Jesus Christ warned that even the elect would be deceived. Could it be anymore that was the Jewish people endured when the Romans under Titus invaded Jerusalem and destroyed the temple n 70 A.D. as Jesus predicted would happen 40 years earlier. It began centuries before at the Tower of Babel. When the first ancestors of the Americans came across the Atlantic from England and Europe for freedom of oppression and religion were unaware of the hardships and the challenges that would emerge years later in what they worked hard and sacrificed to establish a nation by the grace of God’s law through his son Jesus Christ.

Long before our nation was ever known, in another continent and another land centuries ago began the defiance of evil and a one world order. After the Great Flood, Noah’s descendants increased upon the earth. One such descendant Cush had a son called Nimrod (Gen. 10:8-10) who became mighty upon the earth and commanded those who followed him to build a tower in the land of Shinar (present day Iran and Iraq) that reached the sky to equal to God that they were as mighty was the Creator in Heaven (Gen. 11:1-9). All of these were of one language, and they built a city and tower. The Lord saw this that they were all one and of one language. He knew nothing would be restrained from them, which they imagined to do in the rebellion of God’s plans and His laws. God then confounded their language so they couldn’t understand each other and they were scattered abroad. On that day the city and tower was called Babel because God confounded their language. Nimrod had introduced a system of tyrannical government and sought to build a one-world government Satan’s way. After God’s intervention at the Tower of Babel, Babylon’s prominence rose and fell over the centuries. Babylon is Satan’s historic counterfeit of God’s kingdom. Nimrod’s city may be gone in the dust and ruin, but the political, religious and economic system is still continuing today. Ancient Babylon has been succeeded by a modern Babylon, the prophet Isaiah called “daughter of Babylon” (Isaiah 47:1). Isn’t it a coincidence that the image on the back of the United States of America dollar bill that this was the idea that begun back in the ancient time of the Tower of Babel. If you have a dollar bill handy look at it some time with the pyramid and the eye in the Great Seal of the United States. The appearance of the eye looks sinister like “Big Brother” watching you. One resource claims that this is Horus the god originating from ancient Egypt. Just below it is the insignia, “Novus Ordo Seclorum” Latin for “New Order of the Ages is created.” Above the symbol is Annuit Cœptis meaning “He has favored our undertaking.” The phrase comes from Virgil’s Aneid. Other authorities on the subject are saying that this is not a symbol of the one world order. Let’s explain further. During the President Franklin D. Roosevelt administration, controlled by overseer Bernard Baruch, ordered the pyramid, all-seeing eye and Latin inscription to be placed on the U.S. one dollar bill (The Secret Symbols of the Dollar Bill, by David Ovason). This is the secret government that is overseeing the affairs of the U.S. government of the American people.

When America was only 12 colonies, and the heat of the American Revolution intensified for independence from Great Britain, it wasn’t until the Second Continental Congress that government began to form in 1775. From this group of God believing patriots, Samuel Adams, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, came our laws, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, which were structured, from the Ten Commandments and the laws of the Bible. Within the infrastructure of the nation also were those who had plans for their own type of world government system to have everyone under one umbrella and control their lives. Most of the buildings and the layout of the territory around the Nation’s Capitol building in Washington, D.C. were designed by the secret society of the Freemasons (Masonic Lodge). There has always been debate since the world existed which political system would work for the good of the people. Even this type of political system has entered into the church pulpits. This will be the same political-religious system that will deceive many as the populace will be subtlety and eternally imprisoned in the grips of the Antichrist deception that will damn their souls forever. That why it’s crucial to know what’s going on and how you don’t have to be one of populace to be deceived. Read my editorial on the National ID and how to protect yourself from the evil insurgent upon your life and your very soul.

During the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln declared martial law putting the United States under Federal jurisdiction. It was never removed because Lincoln was assassinated. This type of political-religious system began after the Reconstruction era following the American Civil War. Influential, but diabolical men began to devise a plot to control the Earth under one government. Most of these men and women are heads of financial institutes, rulers, kings, queens, aristocrats, millionaires, political figures, and successful businessmen. These groups form the secret society called The Illuminati (Bronfman/Greenberg/Rothschild/Rockefeller dynasties) and others called The Trilaterals (Bushes, Clintons), the Bilderbergs, and the Freemasons. Currently this year, the elusive Illuminati group are believed to be meeting somewhere in Istanbul, Turkey. This is historically and prophetically significant that Istanbul was once called Constantinople the once Roman Empire under Constantine. Their agenda is to bring the whole world under the control of a one-world system and a single leader, The Beast (Revelation 17). The National ID is the step toward receiving the dreaded Mark of the Beast. It is to get the people sensitized to the system. The time is here where we’re moving into the one-world system and the subtle implementation of the microchip in every human being on the face of the Earth. This mark will be in the right hand or the forehead. This is foretold in the book of Revelation of the Holy Bible, that he will cause all nations, great and small, rich and poor, free and bond to receive the mark in their right hands and their foreheads; that no man might buy or sell unless he had the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name: it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six, 666 (Revelation 13:1-18). We are the terminal generation that the prophet Daniel spoke about. In Daniel 12 this generation would increase in knowledge and travel would increase. Knowledge in our society has advanced by leaps and bounds more than all the centuries combine. We have scientists and technicians’ bringing into reality what wasn’t possible years ago now is possible. Since the beginning of the 20th century man could only travel on foot, horseback, or ships. Today’s society we’re able to travel every form of transportation possible. We’ve even can reach outer space. Only this technology is subtlety squeezing the life out of us, just like the serpent that deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden. We are being deceived through the mass media, political system, and false religion. America is being murdered every day along with the sins of aborted babies. The plot of the Illuminati’s Council on Foreign Relations is to dissolve the United States of America. The Illuminati and fellow traitors want to abolish the U.S. as a nation, and set up the North American Union and put in high office in America, Mexican and other foreign officials. There is being set up a much higher judicial court than that of the United States Supreme Court. The CFR also plans a Mexican/US/Canadian parliament superior to our U.S. Senate and House. That means all national borders will be dissolved. This will trash our Bill of Rights and our U.S. Constitution. The U.S. welfare and other benefits will be given to over 100 million Mexicans who will be invited across the border and populate the former states of the U.S.A. All this should happen before the year 2010. The American public has been betrayed and damned forever. All dissenters that rebel against them will be sent to Gulag concentration camps. History repeats itself once again. Treason is on every side, supported by the anti-patriotic media. America, we’re in really BIG trouble!

There is hope and salvation in Jesus Christ our Savior. He warned us about this coming deception (Matthew 24 & Luke 21) and his disciples, and the Apostle Paul. All you have to do is trust in Him as your Lord and Savior and He will do the rest to save you from the coming tribulation upon the earth. You don’t have to live in fear another minute or be worried of what’s going to happen next. Just keep watching and praying and be equipped in the Word of God. Jesus will bring His Kingdom back to this earth one day—in the very near future. This world of evil and wicked men will not stand in the Day of Judgment. The coming Antichrist will only have a short time here on this Earth. The False Prophet who will deceive the world to follow after The Beast (Antichrist) he will meet the same fate as the Antichrist and Satan. This Earth is the Lord’s and He’s coming to bring righteousness and peace for all time, once and for all, through all eternity. One day you’ll have to make a choice. It’s up to you to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and hope for His coming to save us from a world gone mad. Any one out there that understands all the travesties that are taking place in the United States, now is your time to do something about it. If you’re save by the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, trust in His promise and the joy of salvation, and then what I suggest is to tell your unsaved loved ones, friends, and trusted co-workers that they can be saved from this deceptive world of Satan and his evil alliance. God’s plan is to bring His Kingdom of hope, peace and justice what it was intended to be. Nothing and no one can stop it from coming. It’s a battle of good and evil, an end-time stand between the righteous and the unrighteous. Where will you stand on the day of Judgment? Look up, and lift up your heads for your redemption draws near (Luke 21:28).

Satan's Agenda

Low resolution scan of engraving with caption ...
Satan’s Meeting Video from Revelation Ministries

Don’t Get Too Busy that you forget the most important things in life. Life is too short not to live it.

Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.
In his opening address he said,
“We can’t keep Christians from going to church.”
“We can’t keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth….”
“We can’t even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with
Their SAVIOR.”
“Once they gain that connection with JESUS, our power over them is
“So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners,
BUT steal their time, so they don’t have time to develop a relationship
“This is what I want you to do,” said the devil:
“Distract them from gaining hold of their SAVIOR and maintaining that
Vital connection throughout their day!”
“How shall we do this?” his demons shouted.
“Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable
Schemes to occupy their minds,” he answered….
“Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow.”
“Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work
6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty
“Keep them from spending time with their children.”
“As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from
The pressures of work!”
“Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice.”
“Entice them to play the radio or I-Pod whenever they drive.” To
Keep the TV, DVDs, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their home and see
To it that every store and restaurant in the world plays non-biblical music
Constantly.” (Entertainment, a billion dollar a year industry has created more destruction of the family than drugs and alcohol combined. The illuminati use this to control our minds. It is a battle for your mind.)
“This will jam their minds and break that union with CHRIST.”
“Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers.”
“Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day.”
“Invade their driving moments with billboards.”
“Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, sweepstakes, and
Every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, services
And false hopes.”
“Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands
Will believe that outward beauty is what’s important, and they’ll
Become dissatisfied with their wives. “
“Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night.”
“Give them headaches too! “
“If they don’t give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to
Look elsewhere.”
“That will fragment their families quickly!”
“Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children the
Real meaning of Christmas.” (Christmas has pagan origins from the time of Nimrod and an abomination of the Lord)
“Give them an Easter bunny so they won’t talk about HIS resurrection
And power over sin and death…” (Easter is pagan worship of an ancient goddess of fertility Astre, Eostre, Ishtar)
“Even in their recreation, let them be excessive.”
“Have them return from their recreation exhausted.”
“Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on GOD’S creation.
Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies
“Keep them busy, busy, busy!”
“And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and
Small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences.”
“Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek
Power from JESUS.”
“Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health
And family for the good of the cause.”
“It will work!”
“It will work!”
It was quite a plan!
The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere
To get busier & more rushed, going here & there.
Having little time for their GOD or their families.
Having no time to tell others about the power of JESUS to change lives.
I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes?
You be the judge!!!!!
Does “BUSY” mean: B-eing U-nder S-atan’s Y-oke?

NGC 7293, The Helix Nebula, a planetary nebula...Image via Wikipedia
The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. – 2 Chronicles 16:7-14

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope pictures of the Helix Nebula is a remarkable trillion-mile-long tunnel of glowing gases and at its center a dying star that has ejected dust and gas stretching toward the outer rim. The incredible photos of it look like the blue iris of a human eye complete with eyelids, which some have called it the “Eye of God.” 

Even though this isn’t the eye of God, the Scriptures tell about God’s gaze on our lives. The prophet Hanani said, “The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9).

Through the prophet Hanani his declaration of God’s all seeing eye was given in response to King Asa’s trust upon Benhadad, king of Syria for military defense. Asa had forgotten that it was the Lord God, not mere soldiers, who had given him past victories over his enemies (2 Chronicles 14:11-12). This spiritual unfaithfulness did not escape the notice of God, who seeks to pour out blessing on acts of respect to Him.

We may not be able to see the eyes of God, but we can be guaranteed that He sees us. His desire is to show Himself strong to those who are devoted to Him with their whole heart. Knowing that He sees us gives both confidence and relief.

Colossians: Prescription for the Church

Christ in Gethsemane (Christus in Gethsemane),...Image via Wikipedia
By Teresa Carr

A prescription according to a letter from Apostle Paul to the Colossians that was written about 60 A.D. in ancient Turkey (then Asia Minor). The letter was a remedy of how a church should function healthfully and spiritually. These are simple instructions that one person can follow each day as part of living a successful Christian life.

  1. Pray always in good times and bad times. Ask for knowledge of God’s will; ask for help in walking worthy of the Lord; ask for strength with all power.
  2. Trust in Christ always. Christ is the incarnate of God the Father. Jesus Christ is both God and man, divine and human, infinite and finite. Christ is Creator of the world. God created everything “in heaven and on earth.” Christ is the head of the church. Jesus Christ is in control and is involved in the lives of His children. Christ is Reconciler of all. Only Jesus Christ is able to restore broken relationships.
  3. Rejoice in suffering. Suffering brings believers closer to Christ. Suffering brings a future reward. Suffering for sake of the Gospel should be counted a privilege. In suffering we need to be busy with the work of Christ telling the Gospel message to all people.
  4. Be strong in the Lord. Be dependent in Him daily. Strengthened by Him and firmly focused on Him.
  5. Avoid Additives. Salvation is by faith alone, not by works. Faith in Christ is the only way to salvation (Colossians 2:16-23).
  6. Dress for Success. “If then you were raised with Christ, seek these things which are above.” (Colossians 3:12-17). Wear the spiritual wardrobe for success. These are: tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering (patience), tolerance, forgiveness, and above all these things, LOVE.
  7. Be submissive (Colossians 3:18-4:1). This is God’s plan for human relationships. Wives submit to your husbands in love; children obey, parents encourage; employees follow, employers lead. All of this is to be done voluntarily and from the heart “as to the Lord and not to men.”
  8. Speak of Christ. Let your speech always be with grace. In essence reiterating the Great Commission of Jesus recorded in Matthew 28:19-20. Go and tell the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others. We need to be always at work―speaking a word of witness, ready to give an answer from God.

The kind of image we must possess is that of “perfect manifestation” which is the epitome of Jesus Christ the image of God Himself (Colossians 1:15). If you once were a Christian who knew Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, he is the Reconciler who restores His relationships with His children when fellowship has been broken by their sin. Reconciliation is restoration of unity in a relationship where alienation has taken place (Colossians 1:20). The second antidote to reconciling is the willingness of submissiveness, which comes from the Greek word hupeiko, “place under.” God desires that His children willingly place themselves under His authority “as it is fit in the Lord” (Colossians 3:18, KJV).

As we walk in Christ it is important that we practice these rules to be successful in our daily Christian walk with Him. It is also important to concentrate on God’s goodness and depend on it. Our circumstances do not change the truth that the Lord is good at all times (Nahum 1:7). Staying true to your convictions is one of the utmost characteristics of a Christian to possess. For example, Daniel refused to give in when he was surrounded by the ungodly (Daniel 1). There are many Christians today who do not immerse themselves in the Word of God, the Bible. Just how they can do without it and live a successful life is actually impossible. That’s what has happened to our nation. Man himself and society as a whole has evaded the need for God’s word. What we all need is to listen to god in His word. It is encourage you. Not only that it will make you wiser and humble in the presence of the Lord (Psalm 119:49-50). One of the greatest and even the most difficult is to do good to those who oppose you. As Christ forgave you, so shall you forgive others who have offended you. Christ died in the presence of His enemies to save their souls and yours from sin. Christ suffered a brutal, violent death of crucifixion and His words before He died were, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” Why can’t we forgive those who have done us injustice? According to Matthew 5:44 commanded us to return good for evil. Your reward will be great in Heaven. God will judge those who have not ask for repentance through Christ and continue to blatantly sin against God’s law. The soul that sins will see the second death. Jesus set us free from sin and His victorious resurrection on the third day after His crucifixion gave us eternal life. This bring us to the most important rule is to trust God to be your companion. He will never leave you, and He will never forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). When it’s just you and God, that’s enough (Psalm 35:1-10). Tn these words, plead my cause, O Lord, with those who strive with me. With God behind you and His arms beneath you, you can face whatever is before you.

Christ Crucifixion Find "Nails of the Cross"

Controversial documentary maker Simcha Jacobovici claims to have found the nails used to crucify Jesus Christ

Mr Jacobovici, who has previously claimed to have found the tomb of Christ, says the nails were discovered in the tomb of Jewish high priest Calaphas. [see rest of the story]

It seems I remember a similar story about the "Nails of the Cross of Jesus" being secretly kept somewhere in France as the mysterious "Holy Grail."
