The Rapture of the Body of Christ
Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes. Matt.24:44
Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Rev3:10
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with excess wine, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. Luke 21:34
I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon His head, and His face was as it were the sun, and His feet as pillars of fire: Rev.10
and THANK GOD FOR IT!
My e-mail address is
The Swords, this is what I watched. I prayed,
"My Sheep Hear My Voice"
This is an open letter to my fellow Americans, and to the world. Swords are easy for everyone to understand, they are either offensive or defensive weapons, but these are pointed at us. We should know by now the difference between right and wrong. Each of us either embraces the simple truths in life, or not. We used to call it common sense.
Seeing but not seeing, blind or just confused, we are a nation unable to tell right from wrong and we have chosen to believe lies. Animals have instincts to guide them, but we have our consciences, reasoning and common sense to help us learn right from wrong, or we could learn by trial and error. We have failed in all three, or is that four.
Some of us have become blind, and our ears are dull. Many don’t care anymore about common sense or the Truth, and just want what they want regardless. When the Truth gives us light and hope for the future, because the Truth has Life within itself. Each of us are the kings of our own world, we can do that. Distinct in our own identities. Our opinions are what we are, we shape ourselves, and in America our hearts and minds are the image of America.
As a nation we are comprised of many distinct parts, individual identities, these images form a body. All together in the Book we also project a national image, yes, a very huge, graphically symbolic supernatural Image. Yes, there is a book, this image mirrors our national identity and this symbolic image of us in this book is not a good one, and that is what the swords are about.
This Book is our guide, the history and destiny of earth is in this Book. From nothing to now and beyond, it is an Eternal Book, you can bet your life on it. Can we count the ways God/Fate has saved our lives so often?
Who or what do we think we resist when we deny the Truth? Are we as self-focused as Adam was? We know about him, or Israel, they deny the works of Jesus to this day, but God is still working with them, and our time to decide is about up, because we have already made serious choices as a nation, and when we oppose God, we are in the way.
So to explain more about these swords, they are of course a supernatural thing, not metal blades floating in the sky, they are symbolic. Nevertheless they were, and are very real. They are as real as rain. We don’t see water going up into the sky and yet eventually it all falls from there. Water is heavy, very heavy so what’s with it floating up into the sky?
A brain would no doubt be able to explain away this miracle, and also the old “intelligent design” retort of, “What came first the chicken or the egg”? Nevertheless, the chicken, the rain and swords all come from the same place.
All mankind should believe in a Creator, because He is clearly seen in nature. We see nature, we praise nature and say we understand it, how wondrous it is. We see The Life and Light and Truth of Creation in nature, and yet we deny the Creator. There is no excuse for that; In the very last days the kingdom of darkness will war more openly against the Kingdom Of Heaven and His people.
I’m alive today because of the power of the Grace of God, and this common sense. To know right from wrong in the same way we know it might rain when dark clouds form overhead. By reasoning and the use of our senses. What am I saying? What am I begging you to understand?
These are the last days of America. Like a vivid full color scriptural comic book, rich & vibrant in unmistakable symbolism. The swords are a symbol of a supernatural fulfilling of scripture. For some it is a joyous event, and it still can be for all of us.
The gentiles,as the Jews before us have turned our backs on God. A nation is like a single body of it's people, if it violates a natural law, nature itself corrects herself, and it's the same for divine laws. The swords are symbols of divine laws scripturally set in order before our eyes, as a warning and not just to His followers.
This is my Interpretation of the Vision
Repent means to Turn Towards God
The Kingdom of God is at hand! Repent and be Baptized!
The MOST Important thing to Remember,,, is that we are Saved by Grace, which is Unmerited Favor.
Then we add to our Faith, Virtue (pureness), and to Virtue Knowledge (of God), 2Peter 1:5
Where to begin?
For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only He who now lets (restrains) will let, until He be taken out of the way. 2Th 2:7
And then shall that Wicked (one) be revealed 2Th 2:8
to become, i.e. to come into existence, begin to be, receive being
to become, i.e. to come to pass, happen, of events
to arise, appear in history, come upon the stage of men appearing in public to be made, finished of miracles, to be performed, wrought
i.e. (reflexively) to become (come into being), used with great latitude (literal, figurative, intensive, etc.):—arise, be assembled, be(-come, -fall, -have self), be brought (to pass), (be) come (to pass), continue, be divided, draw, be ended, fall, be finished, follow, be found, be fulfilled, +God forbid, grow, happen, have, be kept, be made, be married, be ordained to be, partake, pass, be performed, be published,
All this for one little word?
The Father desires to TALK with us, to DELIVER us, and He has endured Much to do so. We must be Sanctified to be as close to the Father as possible in Jesus. He tells us to not touch what is unclean, to mortified our members. As in the past there will be a widening separation of the two camps, between Gods camp and the enemy. The enemy is a deceiver and little by little he has been doing just that. So now we as a nation are committing the same atrocities as those in ancient days, whom the Lord destroyed; but this time it will be different. This time is the only time in the entire history of the world that He will deliver His people away in an instant,at the sound of the Trumpet,His supernatural Bride; though this happens After she has been purified, of the scum that clings to her, like Plaque! Daniel 11:35
This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, and be Renewed in the Spirit of your mind;
That you put on the New man, which after God is Created in Righteousness and True Holiness. Eph.4
Always in my heart I knew that if I were to see Jesus I would instantly look down, my continence fallen, why? 1Jon.2:28
I realized that what I was receiving from smoking was,,, comfort, yes but we know the Holy Ghost is our True Comforter. 2Cor.1:3
I realized I was receiving a temporary physical and therefore fake comfort, a drug to the flesh to help it relax. The Truth (which is the Lord God Jesus Christ Almighty) set me free immediately. Rom.6:7
Do I hate smoking? No. But I hate HAVING to smoke. People are going to get some kind of comfort from something, it a least gives people something to do.
I now can hold up hands that are not spotted or blemished,Eph.5:27 sin which Jesus gave His life to free me from THE POWER OF! Hallelujah!
Pure Holiness in Christ Jesus, and we will do it TOGETHER, which IS Gods' will Eph.4:16
How do I know the Lord wants all of US to become a perfectly joined and fit together Body of Christ so fervently now, and that it is Him and not just me talking?
Because of His Word, the past and all of the things He has done in my life and all He has given me. John 3:27
I believe that the Holy Spirit will be manifesting itself even more strongly still in every individual member of the Body of Christ.
To bring in more of the fullness of His Bride, in a quickening of their spirit abiding in Him therefore glorifying His Son in us. By the joining of His Bride together in one mind, each piece will become more confident established in good works in the knowledge of Him.
We have all seen and felt the changes in the very air around us. This is evidence of God working His will in these the very few last remaining moments of our time. Col.1. The world (meaning all those who do not desire to obey God) believes they are just modernizing society, improving it, getting rid of the old superstitious past. But the Day of the Lord is coming, and the mystery of Jesus Christ will be revealed, because:
All the devil wants is to sit on the throne of God in Jerusalem. America will link up with ten nations to invade, though we know it is a failed attempt, who is it that fights for Israel? Revelation 14. How about that!
Pretty scary stuff isn't it! Are you excited! Who is God talking about, is it us? "here is the patience of the saints" 14:12. Yes. This sounds like during the 7-year tribulation.
The 144,000 with Christ are the first fruits in the Rapture, and Babylon has already been destroyed by them! (For His judgments are True and Just; for He has judged the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her immorality, and has avenged on her the Blood of His Servants.”). Rev.19:2
But is all of that what we will be talking about? No!
All we care about is,,, Getting ready for JESUS !
Yes entering into the fullness of the power of His resurrection (+). Walking in the Divine nature. 2Pet.1:4
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Gal.5:22-25 (and if anyone says we are saved by grace, yes of course I agree, never the less please see Heb.6:1)
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace to the hearers. Eph.4:29
Somehow, I don't really know how to fully do this. Live in, abide in Him 1Jo 2:28, a divine state "his divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness", "be partakers of the divine nature" 2Pet.1, of love and gentleness. Even though I have been a witnessing Jesus sheep a very long time it has been more of confessing His name and being instant (to witness) even when inconvenient (to me) and not being a violent man, extremely slow to anger and controlling every word out of my mouth, and bringing every thought into captivity 2Cor.10:5; which we do by putting on Jesus mind "let this mind be in you" Phil.2 and keeping our minds eye "on the goal set before us" Heb.12:1, our thoughts on Him and not on worldly things "double minded" James1, scripture, striving to be in constant prayer by praying for those who God brings into our thoughts, etc.
Perhaps it is this,,, "That He might present it to Himself a Glorious Church (Bride), not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be Holy and without Blemish."
WRINKLE= "a slight line or fold"
What can I say, it was there. At the time I had no idea of their meaning although I was understandably awestruck. The interpretation is the only one possible for me, of what we become possibly Before the Rapture. Beginning with the Swords formation in two groups, Double, was the indelible term that stuck with me and my description of them. Scriptural reference is Rev.18.
Please do not think for one second that I enjoy this interpretation! Below is a personal plea for people to accept the earth as a creation of God, which is a Primary Requirement for mankind Rom.1:20.
I read somewhere a man wrote that any man who says that he had NOT fornicated on an online PORN site is a Liar. Well, he is a liar, Because I have Never fornicated on an Online PORN Site. When my fourth son told me that the internet was full, absolutely loaded with PORN I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with the United States Government, for allowing it, yes Allowing it.
The "Great" Invitation! Come unto me all of you that are heavy ladened and I shall give you rest. Matt.11:28 For My Yoke is easy, and My burden is light!
"Father forgive me for everything I have done that is wrong and come into my heart.
Thank you Lord Jesus!
Now what? (Read the Bible)
Get baptized! Where? In water! In the name of "The Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit! Amen.
Now what? (Read the Bible)
Get ready for the Joy, and Fight of your LIFE people !!!
Follow the Trail, that Truth trail!
We are now going to talk in riddles for a while! Why do I say riddles? Because it may seem we are talking in circles, but we are not. Why? Because of many reasons. First and last is because we aren't really going any where, we are already there! Yes we are there right now! Feel the JOY?? Are you HAPPY RIGHT NOW? You should be! That Joy you feel or will feel is the proof you are ON THAT TRAIL ALREADY!
In Bible words, it is the fruit, the reward of your FAITH= your HOPE, your DESIRE to believe GOD, to believe in God. Your heart felt desire to believe the Truth.
Be Happy, just feel that Jesus loving Joy of the Truth!
Read the Bible!
The First Four books of the New Testament
1 John,1 Peter, Ephesians, Colossians,,, all of it !
ABOVE ALL, understand what Baptism is, and how important it is to learn to walk in the new nature the "Divine Nature"
It is what all Christian churches should be teaching, walking in Love, in the Spirit of Gentleness.
I saw this,,,
IT WILL COME AS A SURPRISE TO MOST EVERYONE!!
As God has said,
“YOUR MOTHER SHALL BE SORE CONFOUNDED;
THE HINDERMOST OF THE NATIONS
SHALL BE A DRY LAND, AND A DESERT”
,,,SHE HAS GIVEN HER HAND” Jer.50:12
Meaning at that time people will know and understand!
“You have to tell people about it”.
I have been working on a compilation of scriptures in which God makes His intentions known. (it is now located a little further down this page)
If you have followed the link to Jer.50 you have an example of the reading I have been doing, reading that is when I wasn't overcome by mourning and crying and watching old, old movies.
Isaiah 13,14,18, Ez.20, 28, Is.65, 66, Jer.50,51, Rev.17,18 are the primary chapters, & Eventually Daniel.
I have had as much consolation in Psalms and other scriptures as can be afforded considering the circumstances. For me Jer.50-51 are as unsettling as any scripture can get, terribly upsetting. Old testament judgement in the 21st century.
Foremost and overall, the further understanding of these chapters and the degree of there dramatic and fervent intensity, is very noteworthy to say the least, so much so that even saying that is an understatement. So now what?
God really, really hates, I'll just say it, God really hates all sexual sin. This is a massive, epoch, supernatural war, but the real war has almost or nothing to do with sex. God's dominos, and He tells us, everything.
So what are we to do about it? What do we do now that we know that this is the fate of, "The New America!", very soon? I can say that because we know how fast time passes.
Understand and secure our salvation, and our assurance for the rapture! Think of your Kids & Friends.
Have Matt.25, with 1Cor.6:9, clearly understood for yourself and those you love.
To a sleeping church this news should be an urgent wake-up call. To all of us it should motivate us in other ways, to study scripture to be prepared, or be left, the heck, behind. Because if we have not crucified the flesh in the flesh, and possibly in thought, (Matt.5:28 you decide) we may be required to crucify our flesh, in fact. Rev.18...checking (those slain for the faith by the harlot).
All of these chapters tell us the same DRAMATIC thing. God is not sloppy.
He watches every single detail unfold in all of His Glory and Power from the comfort of His home, His man cave. Is.18:4.
I realize I have not yet posted the context of all of these chapters in a time line. The reason for that is because it just keeps expanding, not only in the breadth of our understanding, but also the sequence of events and details.
Frankly it is an enormous task, a rotten and depressing task, and one I may not do. All of the chapters are easy to place and understand. I am considering a different approach, just a narrative accompanied by the chapters in parallel.
All of those gone before us (John Wayne, Lee Marvin etc.) have gone to their graves in relative peace in the world they created 2Kings 22:2. While we are left with the one we have created since 1948. This is extremely comforting to me.
My opinion is that the very dynamics of creation, God, His will, laws, everything that happens occurs according to Gods design. His enemies destroy themselves, they rebel in the way He chooses, fall into their own traps etc.
They also often look and sound like crazy idiots for a reason! What reason? Out of love. Even a child knows good from bad, to see the truth as adults we need only look in the mirror, without lying to ourselves or otherwise justifying improper conduct. We can see this even now, our Leaders seem stupid.
God instigates this beginning of the end with trickery, imagine that. He tricks the proud, spoiled fat rich and powerful ruler of the whole earth, into invading, they actually invade Israel !
How, how does He defeat us so easily? To begin with all the Christians are gone out of our armed forces and nation from the rapture. That is also why I believe "they would have healed her but she would not be healed". All the Truth, Life and Goodness has gone out of her. Also...
He will destroy out of her the "Great Voice" Jer.51:55, and though she should "fortify" up to the heavens she will be defeated. Difficult to do? One solar flare would do it, all of our technology gone, satellites, all weapons (bows) broken, with one wave of His mighty sword.
But my vote would be that a device we used, backfired. Something we designed against our opponents, when implemented permanently disabled all of our own rifles/weapons. That sounds like all of our weaponry including rifles are going to go very hi-tech in the near future, turned on & off at will, by others. Or, even a bug could cause it.
There is also the subject of the elderly, Is.47:6 which frankly I believe has yet to happen, whatever. Even if the gov. took all the very old out, they would just make it look cheery like a saturday cereal box instead of death. Have you ever visited a typical ward room for the very old? A very sobering experience. The walls are lined with gurneys occupied by the ancients, who upon seeing you just scream, the lesser ask constantly for water which causes them to have to pee, which means they must be changed, a nightmare, day in and day out, year after year after year after year.
Entering into His rest
This is an article declaring Gods will for those who follow Him, it is also in response to YT videos in which the speakers insist that God only speaks to us in the Bible and not by talking to us directly through the Holy Spirit; which it was specifically sent to do, John16:13. As it turns out, assembling the scriptures greatly helped me to complete the paper about Gods desire for our lives. It is also for all those people and churches who say that miracles were only a temporary thing used to firmly establish the new Christian writings and early churches. These scriptures of course are not all there are, if you have more please share with me.
Another important study should be a collection of verses which reveal the importance of those who are lame or have birth defects or very severe injuries; also those who may appear the “least valuable” or important to us or society, which includes those lost in sin or even perhaps in rebellion to the Truth.
I am posting this paper here because I was amazed at how strongly God desires, even demands that we His followers fully become a new creature through rebirth in His son, “so the world may believe the Father sent Him”.John17:21 How do we, or can we overcome sin? Only in Him, He cleanses us 1John1:9, if we strive to enter into His rest Luke13:24, and do not give up Heb.6:19, Jam1:4. Why does He want to do this, the seemingly impossible? For us, those who choose good, and do not want to destroy, steal or kill the innocent; and to glorify Himself, in His son.
I think it possible that Adam, a created man in the flesh could never have chosen to obey God. 1Cor.15:50. Did God cheat in putting Adam in such a fix of decision? No not really. Adam was a very intelligent man, not stupid. He was in the garden, he named all the animals, and if I may ad was probably standing right next to Eve as she listened to the snake. (What else did he have to do, work on his car?)
God judged him for obeying his wife and not his Creator, Gen.2:17 which is idolatry, the first commandment, he chose poorly. The flesh is capable of no good thing! Rom.7:18 “God created man in His own image” with free choice, and we all still have the same choice to make and we bear our own burden. Deut.30:19, Gal.6:5
God created angels, celestial beings (some fell), 1Cor.15:40 and man, a little below the angels Heb.2:7, ministering spirits, to serve man? It seems among other things possibly the devil did not like that. 2Thes.2:4, Ez.28:14.
Man was made as a Bride for His son; that and to destroy the works of the devil, who wars against Gods throne, the mystery of lawlessness. 2Thes.2:7 That is the war we are in and the battle we fight, for our lives and souls, and as parents we also choose for our children 1Cor.7:14.
To them thatareSanctified in Christ Jesus, I thank God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; That in every thing you are enriched by Him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; So that you come behind In No Gift;,, Waiting,, for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 1Cor.1:7
Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1Cor.3:16 For we are laborers together with God: you are God's husbandry, you are God's building! 1Cor.3:9, In whom all the building fitly framed together grows into a Holy Temple in the Lord: Eph. 2:21, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a Holy Priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 1Pet.2:5
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be
Perfectly Joined Together In The Same Mind And In The Same Judgment. 1Cor.1:10
Always Bearing about in the Body the Dying of the Lord Jesus,
That The Life Also of Jesus Might Be Made Manifest in Our Body2cor.4:10
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Col.3:1&2
That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man Truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. Eph. 4:25
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister Grace to the hearers. Eph.4:29 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Gal.5:22-23 ,,,let all your things (words & actions) be done in Love.1Cor.16:14
Endeavoring to keep the Unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.Eph.4:3 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, into a Perfect man, into the measure of the stature of the Fullness of Christ: Eph.4:13
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Act 2:21
Do not touch what is unclean; and I WILL RECEIVE YOU . 2Cor.6:18
Verily I say to you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matt.18:3 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1pet.4:17
Because you have kept the word of My patience (to persevere, or even, endure to the end), I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Rev3:10
For we which have believed do enter into rest, as He said, As I have sworn in My wrath, if they shall enter into My rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. Heb.4:3 And in this place again, If they shall enter into My rest.:5 For he that is entered into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Heb.4:10
I in you, That they all may be one; as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that You have sent Me. John 17:21 And every man that has this hope in him purifies himself, even as He is pure. 1jon.3:3
That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, Eph.5:26 That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.Eph.5:27
Sanctify them through Thy Truth: Thy Word is Truth. Jn.17:17 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be Preserved Blameless until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thes.5:23
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb.4:12 "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded."James4:8.
Let not mercy and Truth forsake you: bind them about your neck; write them on the table of your heart...prov.3:3 Neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin: but yield yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. Rom.6:13
Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify to Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Tit.2:14
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 1Pet.3:4
In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;2Tim.2:25
But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until theday ofChrist’sreturn. Pil.1:10
For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 1cor.11:31 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. 1cor.11:32
Then answered Jesus and said to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do: for what things so ever He does, these also do the Son likewise. John5:19
So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy. Rom.9:16
With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt show thyself upright Psm.18:21 Speak evil of no man, be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness to all men. Titus3:2
Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2Pet.1:4
And have put on the New Man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him: Col.3:10, And that you put on the New Man, which after God is created in righteousness and True Holiness Eph.4:24 And of His fullness have all we received, and Grace for Grace.Jn.1:16
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation;2Cor.5:17
Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and Purify To Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Tit.2:14
But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hbr.11:6
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. jam.2:20&26
Therefore you art inexcusable, O man, whosoever you are that judges: for wherein you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you that judges does the same things...rom.2 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him: Col.3:10 And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.2Cor.3:18 AMP.
FRUIT, You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My name, He May give it to you.

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1cor.2:5 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of Power: 1cor.2:4
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in Power. 1Cor.4:20
In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Prov.3:5 Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. Prov.3:6, It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones. Prov.3:7
A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. John3:27 Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God SHOULD be made manifest in him. Jn.9:3
Again I say to you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven. Mat.18:19
And whatsoever you shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14:13 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availes much. Jam.5:16
If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if you shall say to this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive. Matt.21:22
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.Jam.1:6
Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, AND THEY SHALL RECOVER.

Zeph.3:17 Knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance. Rom.2:4
And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil; Heb 6:19
You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you to Myself. Ex.19:4 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Is.40:31
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2Cor.10 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Heb.12:15
Why do I post this? Because I, we need to honor the least, the weak, we desperately need the man who is crippled from birth. He is me, he is us, imprisoned in the body ravaged by the works of the devil, which Jesus came to destroy. Jesus died a horrible death, which He despised, hated, He was beaten extremely severely Is.52:14 and crucified naked, for what? For this man, for us, to be able to heal this man,,, through us; thereby glorifying His Son, His Word (the Bible) in us, in Him, All in Onein the Father!
Who is the greatest in the kingdom of God? The least here on earth, as spoken of John the Baptist, Matt.11:11. God is a riddle, He is love, and He hides Himself, but He manifests Himself to those who love Him, in all the fullness of the God-head. He now sits where, watching us, on the right hand of what, the Power of God Luke22:69. He has given this to us, so much is required Luke12:48. All of us are different, some of us just really hate it here, in a world where there is so much pain and suffering. Some of us have been forced to stay here, unwillingly, and to fight this ugly war against the powers of darkness who war against the kingdom of heaven.
War is ugly, this is the real war not fought with lousy guns against stupid people, but against a murderer and the father of lies who only steals, kills, and destroys,Matt.10:10 the innocent. Jesus is our armor and weapon given from God, for us He is Gods "battle axe", and He goes before us, and in Him we can never die, at least in the one that matters most, the second death of judgment.
P.S. Whether we like it or not, or want to do this or not, all this war is still happening, so for the sake of yourself and our wives and children, just look at creation and, desire to believe, and prepare now Ps.145:16. Yes He will change your desires, that is a good desire, so He will! ALSO, "I am with you always" Matt.28:20 ...for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon His name. “They will be My people,” says the LORD of hosts (Heaven’s Armies). “On the day when I act in judgment, they will be My own special treasure. I will spare them as a father spares an obedient child. Mal.3:17
Think about this, so what if you are willing to be punished for the sin or two you may have committed by not accepting the Truth, salvation in Christ, (which is far worse) you will still be punished right along with all enemies of the truth. Sure, perhaps not as severely as most or even some, But that name, that name is the only way.
Please tell me why you don't like it, because of this or that, I have heard a lot of excuses. Yet the only real reason other than lust, is pride, the name just makes your skin crawl, you'd rather die. You have answered the only logical answer there is, but not a smart one. We ALL DIE, in one way or the other.
Scriptures are the means of obtaining the salvation of God to everyone that believes Rom.1:16; the word believe, means to rely on; faith means to place hope in Heb.11:1; looking at the wonders of all creation all mankind is convicted for not giving God the credit for it Rom.1:20; scriptures also say that the children of this world are wiser than the children of light Luke16:8, and God can not lie.Titus 1:2
Do you think it is a wise thing to fight God if you cannot win? Is it also wise to want to burn in hell, for eternity, and willingly choose to go there when you do not have to? That would be stupid.
It also says that if we confess our sins He will forgive us, and HE will cleanse us from all unrighteousness, 1John1:9. He also says that He will give us the desire of our heart Ps.145:16 , put together that says that HE has to do most, if not all of the really hard stuff! If we ask to believe He must grant that petition 1John5:15. Also it's written that of ourselves we can do nothing John5:30, and that nobody can do good Ps.14:3, our very flesh is at war with God Gal.5:17 because of what Adam did, not you or me, the very first guy!
So where does all of that leave us? Definitely clear of being able to blame God for anything as Adam tried to do, Gen.3:12. but I don't mean that I totally understand the above wise verse either. Also, as difficult as it may be to understand our lives sometimes, we do know that God has been directly involved in them from the very beginning.
"And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us:" Acts17:27
As we look around the world as it is these days Matt.16:3, and if we look closely with understanding Prov.4:7, we can see what is really happening, that same war between good and evil. For America it is justice VS corruption, and our extreme wealth has it's responsibilities and morally it is even worse, as the top of this pages reveals.
For those who want to have everything their own way, under the circumstances I'm sorry to say that you can, it is your choice to make. But here and now, in the extreme comfort our country currently affords us, I would highly recommend that we realize the Truth.
Jesus, yes that embarrassing guy who walked on water and raised the dead, who let them spit in His face, beat Him to a pulp and pull His beard off by the handfuls, and then allowed Himself to be crucified hanging by nails in His hands for six agonizing hours as they mocked Him, for your sins.
That same little harmless Lamb is going to come back, first to get His friends, and then as the Lion of Judah, the Battle Axe of God, Jer.51:20. Nothing is going to be worth being on His wrong side then, not money, a car, a great house or all the sex, booze or drugs in the world, will mean a thing.
So you decide whether seventy piddly little years is worth sacrificing an eternity for because His name embarrasses us. Your choice, at your ease, equal with Him and the Kingdom of God He will give you for eternity, on a platter with onions? What is foolishness?
That is why I am a fool, for Christ. 1Cor.1:21
