IN THE RESURRECTION…

sound-waves.jpg

Dear Gary sometimes the most profound thoughts come to us in the midnight hours.... My dear brother, this is yet another anointed message.... Yes, I agree we are called to be servants of the lord.... That service may take many forms.... But it has a bottom line...and that is being in His will involves service. Yes we are perfected in him.... and I would like to add ARE PERFECT in him.... When God looks at me/us he does not see Carol If he did, I would have no hope.... Instead God looks at me/us through a prism of Red.... He looks at us through the blood of his dear son, Jesus Christ...and he says....YOU LOOK GOOD TO ME..... Now-- that does not give us licence to live any way we wish....INSTEAD it gives us hope...and should serve as motivation.... for us to reach out and spread the Gospel.... reach out in loving service to humanity. The early church certainly served.... They were slaves, who after 14 hour days came together in the catacombs every single night ....to share their bread... ... to minister and serve one another.... to draw strength from one another... Yes I agree with you we need wisdom to outsmart the evil one.... We need to become wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove. Right now we do not begin to see Christ in hIs fullness.... It is almost as if we have left our car out at night. There has been an ice storm and when we get up in the morning, we turn on the defrost....and start chip chip chipping away at the ice on the windshield..... When we get a tiny clearing on the windshield we jump in the car and go to work. Right now.... this is how we see God.... We cannot begin to wrap our minds around the full windshield of God's glory. All we see is that tiny tiny patch of clear in the windshield.... And for now... that will have to do.....BUT THE DAY IS COMING WHEN THE FOG AND ICE WILL BE SWEPT AWAY....AND THE WINDSHIELD WILL BE CLEAR..... AS WE SHALL SEE OUR LORD AND SAVIOR FACE TO FACE. Dear Gary....thank you again for this wonderful message straight from your heart..... hugs your sister Carol

Dear Gary another anointed and spirit filled message.... YES... we must not grow weary in well doing... Even if it seems that history is winding down... prophecy is being played out before us...and we feel powerless in the face of sweeping opposition and change...we must keep on keeping on... .. For we are His ambassadors..... and must be his lips, hands and feet until his soon return.... When life is chaos and fraught with unpredictability in this sometimes demonic and digital age,, there is a constant.... and that is the Love of God... Our lives are hidden away in God.... and he ever holds us in his powerful right hand.... never letting us go. We can know that with God all things are possible and we are eternally secure. Yes, 1984 is here. BIG BROTHER KNOWS ALL AND TRACKS OUR EVERY MOVEMENT.....I can watch a video, and Gary, literally seconds SECONDS after I watch i get a pop up saying THIS IS RECOMMENDED FOR YOU.... Based on what I watch the computer tracks me.... and knows everything I do and see....every place I go.... Nevertheless....we cannot live our lives in fear....for we know that HE WHO NEVER SLUMBERS OR SLEEPS WILL BE OUR PROTECTOR AND OUR GUIDE.... As a mother hen lovingly gathers her chicks up under her wings and embraces them... so God gathers US up under his protective wings.... and He envelops us in his care..... This is the age of grace...and one day the sky will split....the age will be ended and he shall descend with a shout...with the trump and the dead and Christ shall rise first and then we who are alive shall be caught up in the clouds to ever be with the Lord.... But until the time Satan is busy catching souls in his snare. We must be equally diligent in winning souls.... The time is short and the fields are white unto harvest. Even so.....Come Lord Jesus. Gary thank you again for this powerful presentation hugs from your friend and sister, Carol

Psa 23:1-6" A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."

 

Gary your evening reminiscings are inspired and anointed..... Yes I agree, Paul had to embrace three days of darkness before he could embrace the glorious light of Christianity..... As I listen to you I am reminded that all history is really HIS STORY.... and just as creation was written by Him -- so will the final chapters in the annuls of mankind.... If I keep that in view.... that Christ has the final chapter sealed away..... it makes the darkness of disappointment easier to stand.... Oh, we know at some level we are never truly alone.... that Christ is our friend and companion.... But when the kids we have nurtured and loved and raised with the gospel turn away..... the dark times are hard to endure.... Yes I agree with you There is a very real sense in which we MUST EMBRACE THE DARKNESS....When my baby died... when Jose died.... as difficult as it was I had to embrace the darkness..... mourn....cry...... grieve..... and it was a lengthy process.... before I healed... before I got to the point in my life where I knew there was light...and that light was far greater....it outweighed any loss I had ever suffered....or ever will..... Embrace emptiness? Embrace loss? Embrace unfulfilled dreams? Embrace hurt? Yes.... believing...hoping KNOWING that darkness might be an old friend.... but JOY COMMENTH IN THE MORNING..... And Light holds sway over the night..... Gary thank you for another magnificent podcast.... You are a mighty warrior in the Army of the Lord.... hugs a fellow warrior

Sending Angels -Recovery

wave.jpg

Yes Yes we have all entertained angels unaware..... I know we have.... When we think of angels, there is the winged stereotype..... and of course the types of angels are explained and exemplified in the word of God so there is indeed a Biblical precedent. But, I would like to interject that not all angels have wings....When Hospice sitters come in to spend entire nights with dying patients.....as VOLUNTEERS.... they are the unseen hosts.... angels unaware..... Angels are found in Brooks Brothers suits.... ministering to high level executives who in private are bulimic suicidal drug addicts..... The are found in the streets of any city in the world..... ministering to men and women living in cardboard boxes..... giving them blankets and wamr soup and coffee.... getting them off the streets when the temperatures dip below freezing and they would die..... The are Salvation Army volunteers.... and they are angels..... They come disguised as neighbors who take the elderly  to the grocery store.... as friends who bring in groceries when a loved one is out of work and can't purchase food for his/her family...... They walk dogs, and sit cats..... and babysit the kids for free, so mom and dad can have a much needed night out..... Angels serve humanity.... We do not see their wings.... Their halos's are obscured from us.... Nevertheless... angels they are..... And one day, these angels are going to receive SOOO MANY CROWNS FOR THEIR LOVING SERVICE.... SO MANY....

Yes the early church knew such power..... and turned the world upside down.... in a brief amount of time..... They sought and seized the empowerment of the Holy Spirit and ran their race of life to win..... Remembering that the early church was severely persecuted..... that Christians were killed.... and lit on fire to be used as torches along dark paths.... they multiplied..... There were new believers coming to the knowledge of Christ by the hour. Adversity bound them together..... Expectaton bound them together even more. For the early church believed that the Lord would return in THEIR LIFETIME... They made haste, believing the time was indeed short.....the fields were ripe unto harvest....but more laborers were needed. And, then .... they grew old....and died... And, their sons and daughters picked up the baton...and continued to run....But, by the time 5 or 6 generations had passed....and Christ STILL had not returned..... they began to grow weary.....they began to faint. Entter Christianity in the year 2019. WILL HE EVER RETURN??? Will we simply wait...and languish saying "shall my lord delayeth his coming?" Some of us may secretly lament WHY WHY HASN'T HE COME BACK?? HOW MUCH WORSE DO THINGS ON THE WORLD SCENE HAVE TO GET? Well, the short answer is MUCH WORSE. This is not a popular teaching among the believe it/claim it crowd. For, we want to have our cake and eat it too...... And, for Christ not to come back yet, does not fit into the template of our Christian lives. YET, GOD IS OUTSIDE THE CONFINES OF TIME....It is so hard for us to grasp. For, our minds are finite. But, NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY....SAVE THE FATHER HIMSELF.... Even Jesus, as the second part of the godhead knows not. This knowledge only the Lord God has saved for himself. Yes, I agree with you dear Gary.... We are all created in the image of God.... And, there is that spiritual dimension that has a proclivity to hunger after God. But, man has choices. And, if we choose to reject God, He gives us free will. We may walk our own way. God is not our puppet-master. Yet, all things ultimately are under HIS DOMINION. AND HE HOLDS SWAY OVER US. Yes....there are sometimes difficult situations and times in our lives..... But, one day it will all make sense. One day we will see our Lord and savior face to face.... And, it will be worth it all.... It will all make sense. What we may have suffered here will be as NOTHING. All the martyrs of old TRULY SUFFERED for what they believed. We...the Church of 2019 are more interested in the drum section of the Worship team than in raising money to send missionaries to foreign lands....or BETTER STILL.....TAKING THE GOSPEL DOOR TO DOOR, AND SHARING THE GOOD NEWS WITH OTHERS. There are times when the Contemporary church is ashamed of the Gospel of Christ....forgetting that holds the key to our redemption and salvation. Even so....come Lord Jesus. Thank you again dear Gary for another annointed message....Carol S

Woe be unto those who call good evil and evil good.... When people chosse to turn away from Biblical truth they will far sooner believe ANYTHING that comes to them in the form of pseudo wisdom...... Seeing themselves as wise in their own eyes...they become as fools.... Again, when humanity rejects THUS SAYETH THE LORD....Satan abhors a vaccuum and rushes in to fill the void. He will use parlor tricks.... talk show hosts, the New York Times best sellers list.....whatever it takes to lure people down his path to perdition. Yes, Gary I agree, THE FAMILY IS UNDER ATTACK AS NEVER BEFORE....BUT IT DIDN'T JUST HAPPEN.... It started clear back in the 40s and 50's EXPLODED INTO THE 60'S and we have seen the steep curve of those who belive Bibical truth decline ever since. The big Billy Graham rallies in the 50's filled stadiums..... I wonder today if they were held if they would even began to fill a high school gym. The Bible is mocked from Saturday Night Live to the London Times.... It is declared myth, fairytale and unscientific. Anyone stupid enough to believe the Bible is branded regressive and Stone age. One day we are going to meet all the babies murdered in the womb. They are the world's holocaust and will remain so. No amount screaming feminists can blot out the silent screams of those countless millions who have been salined to death.
When we believe the Bible it is ultimately GOD WHO HOLDS SWAY OVER ALL OUR BODIES WHETHER MALE OR FEMALE....KNOCK GOD OUT OF THE EQUATION AND YOU HAVE CHAOS...... Every man for himself.... but all going down in a sinking ship of sin....Men should love their wives as they love their own bodies. When this Biblical principle is followed, a woman will lovingly work with her husband as a loving helpmate..... The decisions will be made mutually....but if there happens to be disagreement.... the man is held accountable before God to make that final decision .... And this sends the feminists into fits of rage. HOW DARE ANYONE TELL THEM WHAT TO DO....BUT IT IS NOT MEN/HUSBANDS THEY ARE RAILING AGAINST BUT GOD. Dear Gary once again thank you for an annointed message.... Even so...............come quickly Lord Jesus...Carol S

THE SPICE REPORT…

wave.jpg

You speak of the Church doors being closed...maybe locked?? idk If so while humanly I can understand it....for in the U.S.A. we have had incidents of even pastors and their families being gunned down in church..... Church is no longer a safe haven...but a place where terrorists and deranged people can come to kill....and prey upon the innocent who are doing nothing more than praying.... Yet, if we cower behind locked doors....we have no ministry.... So....what to do? A lesson from the apostles..... who after Jesus' crucifiction cowered..... afraid....hidden away behind locked doors..... afraid that THEY were going to be next...... Yet, after he appeared to them...it gave them a boldness they heretofore had not known.... And they went out to revolutionize the world..... On the day of Penticost, alone, over 3,000 souls were saved. Did they live? Most were exiled or killed..... (Peter was crucified upside down on a Cross -- because he thought himself not worthy to be killed as Christ was..... They did not live....but they were used of God in powerful ways. I think we all cling to life most tenaciously And I do not criticize...for I am not gung ho on dying today.... Yet, we know in order for prophesy to be fulfilled, these things MUST first happen....WHEN THE SON OF MAN RETURNETH SHALL HE FIND FAITH UPON THE EARTH???? I believe there will not be millions and millions awaiting the splitting of those Eastern skies...but rather tiny bands of believers all over the world. We have had a cushy ride for too long. The church is soft.... Yet, in times of persecution the church thrives. (Look at the undergrown church in China today as a classic example) .... We are an imperfect people...and yet God USES imperfect people who are willing to follow Him to further His program for mankind.... HE WORKETH IN US BOTH TO WILL AND TO DO HIS GOOD PLEASURE.....EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS .... THANK YOU MY DEAR BROTHER FOR AN ANNOINTED MESSAGE...Carol S

The book of Acts...what a transitional and transforative book.... From the rushing wind and tongues of fire at Penticost where 3,000 souls were saved in one day..... to fast forward down that tunnel of time where He will come back Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is king of Kings and lord of lords I agree that we should be striving for the sprit filled life now....walking in ressurection power....now..... I also agree that if the church had done its job...... the job it was supposed to have done....there would be no need for Welfare..... In the book of Acts we are introduced to those early Christians who worked 14 hr days as slaves.....AFTER THAT.... THEY CAME TOGETHER IN CAVES TO BREAK BREAD AND SHARE WHAT LITTLE THEY HAD WITH ONE ANOTHER ON A DAILY BASIS. IMAGINE THAT.... everyone sitting or reclining at the same table..... everyone sharing what they had..... The perfect concept for what Church was designed to be..... It has been said that most people will never come to Christ on an empty stomach.....so we must feed them food first...before we present the Bread of Life..... Behold old things are passed away.....and all have become new..... That is the message of sanctification that resonates today throught the annuls of time immemorial......Carol S

Jesus taught an exclusive message concerning salvation. We see this message clearly taught in the gospels, which should be understandable to all that read or hear it, as seen in John 3:34-36.
      John 3:34-36 reads, “For he whom God has sent says God’s words; and God does not give him the Spirit by measure. The Father has love for the Son and has put all things into his hands. He who has faith in the Son has eternal life; but he who has not faith in the Son will not see life; God’s wrath is resting on him. “
     These words of Jesus are the words of God. He had the Spirit, not by measure, as the prophets did in progressive revelation, but in all its fullness. Everlasting life can only be had by faith in Him, and this way exclusively is obtained. Those people, who do not have faith in 1.5 the Son of God, will not see eternal life or God’s salvation. There present condition is that God’s wrath is resting them. Salvation is by faith in Christ alone. Works, religion, or church membership do not secure or qualify a person a place in Heaven. Being a moral person doesn’t. Neither does being a practicing Jew. The message of salvation is exclusively by faith in Jesus Christ, the final revelation of God in these last days. The message is unpopular. You must be born again to be part of Gods family.
     This exclusive message of salvation is even unpopular in some churches that believe in the false doctrine of universalism. 
     Universalism is most commonly found in liberal denominations and churches. It is the same as the modernistic idea and notions of God which emphasise His love in the extreme, without balancing their viewpoint with any sort of notion of God's justice and holiness. Most often, one may hear an universalist use a phrase such as, "A loving God would never condemn anyone to hell!" By saying this, they forget the Scriptural principles of Divine anger against uncovered sin, Divine justice and wrath against said sin, and Divine holiness, which cannot allow that sin into the presence of God in heaven.
     The exclusive message of salvation is that God gave His Son as a redeeming sacrifice. His blood was shed for our sins, as seen in John 3:16.
     John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The other semeion in Revelation 12:3 reveals more biblical truth in connection with the first  semeion. 
      Revelation 12:3 reads, “Then another sign (semeion) appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.”
     The identity of the Red dragon is not debated because he is clearly identified in Revelation 12:9.
     Revelation 12:9 reads, “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
   The second semeion gives us a great deal of biblical truth about the character of Satan. First, he is described as being a red dragon. He is red because he is a murderer of the martyrs and saints down through the centuries. He is pictured as a dragon because of his viciousness and cruelty. The seven heads speak of great wisdom and the seven diadems speak of his rule and reign on the earth. He is the God of this world and the prince of the power of the air. The ten horns speak of his power over the kingdoms of this world that are under his influence.
     Revelation 12:4a gives us further spiritual biblical truth behind this second (semeion).


 Revelation 12:4a reads, “And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth.”
     The stars of heaven, angels are often referred to as stars and this would indicate that when Satan rebelled, a third of the angels rebelled with him. That is why there were probably three angels created in the highest order of angelic being, called the archangel. They were of the cherubim class of angels, but three special, and that was Gabriel, Lucifer and Michael. And that they each probably had under their authority a third of the angelic host. And those that were under Lucifer's authority, when he rebelled against God, joined in his rebellion. With his tail he drew a third part of the stars of heaven.

 The Word of God teaches us  to wait. Just because we  are in motion, it doesn't mean  we are in progress with the Lord, have we  mounted up with wings as the eagle and soared into the greatness of  God. Or do we  move in  own will, our own strength.

  Not being able to find people who will work in perfect obedience has been a great hindrance to God, but in these day the bride of Jesus Christ has appeared on the scene from all direc­tions, coming together in one mind, one accord, in perfect love and obedience. The Bride, wearing the love of our Jesus, is alert, looking for the return of Jesus, knowing for a fact Jesus is coming back. Living, walking, thinking with the Spirit of God, the true Bride is obeying and being taught by the Holy Spirit and being moved by Him to do Gods will on earth...

Our Father in heaven... Have you ever set out to explore the world. It seems so big, and you seem so small. You need a hug to make you feel safe. But just think:
God, who made the world, is closer to you than the wind on your face and the air you breathe. He loves you as his child and wants you, and me, to call Him Daddy.
    Dear God, you are a loving father and want us to be your children
     Mat 6:9-13 reads"  Therefore pray in this way: Our Father, who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we also forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. "

The Word can be preached, talked about, but it still has to be confirmed. If the Word is compromised by false doctrine, it’s not the whole truth, God won’t confirm it. But when the whole divine truth is preached in divine love, faith, grace, and goodness, it’s confirmed with signs, wonders, miracles and healings. If you aren’t seeing signs, wonders, miracles and healings, ask the question Gideon asked: And Gideon said unto him…where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of(Judges 6:13)? Where are the miracles in churches today? A church with the favor of God will have miracles and healings. Without compromise the minister will preach the Word, live it and tell the people that God will do what He has promised.

 The word “brightness” or “radiance” in Greek is the word “apaugasma.”  This word occurs nowhere else in the New Testament. Its proper meaning is “radiated splendour,” or the light which radiates from a luminous body. The abstract concept of this is seen in the rays of the sun which is its “brightness” by which the sun is seen but the sun itself is not seen, it is the rays which radiate from it that are seen.

      "Hebrews 1:3 reads, "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high."

 God is seen and radiated by the image of the luminous body of Christ (apaugasma.

Christ is the radiance of Gods glory. He also has His own essential light as He is God and it is through Him that the true character of God’s glory is revealed by the Holy Spirit who draws us to God by Christ. It is impossible to see the true character of God apart from Christ. That is why the Lord said that no one knows the father except whom the Son chooses to reveal, as seen from Matthew 11:27. ( audio correction)

Matthew 11:27 reads, " All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him."

God bless you all ... Gary
