Unlocked Thought

Live Recording

In regard to the church It has never been more in evidence with the Coronavirus and social distancing that the church is not a building the church is us.... in us of us wherever 2 or 3 are gathered together in spirit and truth THERE HE IS AND WE ARE THE CHURCH-- his hands...his feet.... his mouth ears and eyes... We are his ambassadors. Although it is hard to be worthy ambassadors in this environment it has NEVER BEEN EASY. LOOK WHAT THE EARLY CHRISTIANS FACED....BEING FED TO THE LIONS FOR SPORT.... BEING LIT ON FIRE AND USED AS HUMAN TORCHES. It may come to that again before the Lord returns. It may. It is more difficult to present Christ and the Gospel to Millennials and generation X ers who have been indoctrinated on college campuses throughout the world to believe there is no God
but the GOD IN THEM ---- THE GOD WHO THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE FOR THEY ARE THE EPI CENTER OF ALL THAT EXISTS. To them we are crazy old loons needing to die to pave the way for the brave new world. You posed the question as to why many will be in Hell Gary it is their CHOICE.... GOD GIVES FREE WILL TO BELIEVE OR NOT TO BELIEVE. If you spit in God's face now... he in his mercy will let you You can live any ol way you want Eat Drink and Be Merry BUT THE DAY OF RECKONING IS COMING -- FOR TOMORROW WE DIE. GOD IS HOLY HE IS THE CREATOR. WE ARE NOT If he wanted he could sweep each and every one of us into perdition It is only by his beneficence and mercy that he does not.

The Gospel DOES TEND TO OFFEND, does it not? People don't want to hear that we are sinners and need to repent. Why that's old archaic We are the stuff of dinosaurs-- not enlightened While they are the future on that golden road to higher vibrations and frequencies. They are certainly lead by the engine of EMOTIONS. TODAY EVERYTHING IS TOUCHY FEELY. But for the Christian regardless of what the world thinks or does.... we must let the Sweet Holy Spirit be that engine that keeps our train of life on track.

Last but not least, you spoke of peace. In these days of disquietude turmoil and chaos.... we, as Christians can have peace -- peace in the eye of the storm For our peace does not come from CNN or FOX News our peach cometh from ABOVE. IT IS SUPERNATURAL --- GOD GIVEN That is why when the world quakes we can stand firm as a tree well planted in Lebanon For our root system is the Lord and our limbs extend heavenward each one filled with the Inspired word of God. ( Comment by Carol)

May I experience the BLEACH OF GOD'S WORD so that my heart may be cleaned... When I allow Him to sweep the cobwebs and mold out of my fallen nature.... he restores me to my rightful position He forgives me and I am fresh brand new spanking clean AND I WILL SING A NEW SONG LIKE THE ROBIN YOU WERE PRIVILEGED TO HEAR TODAY. THE ROBIN'S SONG BROUGHT PEACE TO YOU. BECAUSE OF CHRIST AND WHAT HE ACCOMPLISHED ON THE CROSS FOR US.... WE CAN REST IN HIS PERFECT PEACE.....BEING STILL AND KNOWING HE IS GOD

OUR PRAYER WRITTEN BY THE RESIDENTS OF HIGHLAND HEIGHTS -- FACILITATED BY CAROL

 

Dear Heavenly Father, Our President has declared March 15 -- today – as a National Day of Prayer. And, so, this morning, we lift our hearts heavenward to pray and praise You. You are our Messiah....our Protector and Everlasting God. You are Adonai ... Jehovah Jireh... and you alone are worthy of praise. We petition you today on behalf of our World. We pray for all those in our world who are sick today and struggling. Raise them up from beds of affliction and strengthen their bodies and souls. We lift up our hearts to pray for all those in the world who are oppressed. Bring freedom to those who live under a yoke of bondage. Help us to never take our Democracy for granted and to remember our roots. We pray for ENOUGH FOOD to feed the world—We ask that no child would ever have to go hungry because there is no food. Please insure that all nations would have enough CLEAN WATER to drink. Help organizations such as “The Clean Water Project,” The Rotary Club, The City Mission and Salvation Army to continue to serve locally and internationally to do the most good. For those of us still young enough and of good character, we pray for a spirit of volunteerism. Help us to reach out to the world and make it better. We pray for good hospitals—for doctors, nurses and specialists WORLD WIDE to care for the sick and alleviate pain. Raise up Scientists and Research Centers dedicated to the cure of Cancer, Parkinson’s and all debilitating diseases. Please Lord, keep our families and loved ones healthy. And, help our grandchildren to grow up to be useful, healthy, generous and productive citizens...who love you as their maker. We humbly ask for more kindness, empathy and compassion. Please help us to be ever tolerant of other cultures, religions and ways of life. Let us always be of the mindset to “walk a mile in my shoes.” Dear Heavenly Father, help us to be generous -- especially to programs such as “Feed the Children International,” and all local Food Banks. Help us to be worthy ambassadors, dear God, for you. We are your hands to a hurting world. Help us to embrace our world, in love. We are your lips. May words of kindness and encouragement tumble from our mouths. We are your feet. Help us to spread the Gospel of Peace. We are your workmanship. Help us to remember that as we pray, YOU HEAR. And, our world is changed through prayer. On this National Day of Prayer, help us collectively and individually to remember that we are a GLOBAL FAMILY. THANK YOU, Dear God for hearing our heartfelt petition. We love you because you first loved us.

To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace. What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God. I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him. That which is has already been, And what is to be has already been; And God requires an account of what is past. Moreover I saw under the sun: In the place of judgment, Wickedness was there; And in the place of righteousness, Iniquity was there. I said in my heart, “God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, For there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.” I said in my heart, “Concerning the condition of the sons of men, God tests them, that they may see that they themselves are like animals.” For what happens to the sons of men also happens to animals; one thing befalls them: as one dies, so dies the other. Surely, they all have one breath; man has no advantage over animals, for all is vanity. All go to one place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust. Who knows the spirit of the sons of men, which goes upward, and the spirit of the animal, which goes down to the earth? So I perceived that nothing is better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his heritage. For who can bring him to see what will happen after him
Ecclesiastes 3:1‭-‬22 NKJV

Dear Gary this is excellent Yes certainly for everything there is a season And mankind has been in the season of sowing for years and years now I know as Christians we sometimes fall and fail Yet we try to do the right thing We ask forgiveness And because we serve a loving forgiving savior He not only forgives.. restores us to our rightful position but He forgets and casts our sins as far as the East is from the West. Well that's us. But there is a collective out here who has been thumbing their noses at God for years -- hard to do because they deny His existence... Now that Coronavirus is with us these same people who heretofore denied He even WAS no do a reversal and say it is somehow HIS FAULT BUT GOD IS NOT MOCKED WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP We especially here in America have sown the wind. We are reaping the whirlwind. Where do we go from here? I am not a profit....but even as the SARS and MRSA viruses came and went so will Corona HOWEVER THE NEXT ONE IS LOOMING ON THE HORIZON The next pandemic is right around the corner. For we cannot continue cross-breeding species such as bat, rat, snake etc etc for consumption and not have to pay a price. God laid down dietary rules clear back in the OT for a reason It was for our good When we culturally step on the face of God we are foolish to think there will be no consequences. At least that is what I think my dear friend Thank God He continues to be a God of mercy and love. And if we repent he reaches His arms around us and will never let us go. his forgiveness and love is readily available to any and all who but ask. 

Philosopher Keith Ward puts it this way:

"The real world is a world of finite spirits beings with value saturated experience and creative purpose existing with the one supreme spirit of unrestricted consciousness and value. Human life is not a pointless flicker or awareness in an indifferent and finally decaying machine. It is a developing awareness of finite spirits (but unfortunately not always developing) of the wider consciousness and purpose of the supreme spirit within which they exist, and with which it is their inheritant  goal to unite in that blissful state of completed desire that is termed love. "

Wednesday evening again is a good time for me to talk and share on here looks like it's going to more regular now as I haven't recorded much this year.. Sharing some stuff here that was going on in me on a deep level but learning to just open up and share it anyway... Its about willful sin and the beginning of it taking root and what it does both spiritual and physical.. It is still a learning process and the Lord wants us to learn and grow in him... Thanks for listening to my confession and experience of God's grace and love..

 Blessings for Obedience

Deuteronomy 28 If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.

Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.

You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

Hebrews 11-1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

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

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

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
