Till The Storm Passes By


Lyrics for “Till The Storm Passes By”

In the dark of the midnight have I oft hid my face
While the storm howls above me, and there’s no hiding place
‘Mid the crash of the thunder, Precious Lord, hear my cry
Keep me safe till the storm passes by

Till the storm passes over, till the thunder sounds no more
Till the clouds roll forever from the sky
Hold me fast, let me stand in the hollow of Thy hand
Keep me safe till the storm passes by

Many times Satan whispered, “There is no need to try
For there’s no end of sorrow, there’s no hope by and by”
But I know Thou art with me, and tomorrow I’ll rise
Where the storms never darken the skies

Till the storm passes over, till the thunder sounds no more
Till the clouds roll forever from the sky
Hold me fast, let me stand in the hollow of Thy hand
Keep me safe till the storm passes by

When the long night has ended and the storms come no more
Let me stand in Thy presence on the bright peaceful shore
In that land where the tempest, never comes, Lord, may I
Dwell with Thee when the storm passes by

Till the storm passes over, till the thunder sounds no more
Till the clouds roll forever from the sky
Hold me fast, let me stand in the hollow of Thy hand
Keep me safe till the storm passes by

Psalm 27:4-6


4 One thing have I desired of the Lord; that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret places of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me upon a rock.
6 And then shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; therefore I will offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.


Psalm 91
The Protection of the Most High
1 The one who lives under the protection of the Most High
dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 He Himself will deliver you from the hunter’s net,
from the destructive plague.
4 He will cover you with His feathers; you will take refuge under His wings.
His faithfulness will be a protective shield.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night, the arrow that flies by day,
6 the plague that stalks in darkness, or the pestilence that ravages at noon.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand,
the pestilence will not reach you.
8 You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord—my refuge, the Most High—your dwelling place,
10 no harm will come to you; no plague will come near your tent.
11 For He will give His angels orders concerning you, to protect you in all your ways.
12 They will support you with their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the young lion and the serpent.
14 Because he is lovingly devoted to Me, I will deliver him;
I will protect him because he knows My name.
15 When he calls out to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble.
I will rescue him and give him honor.
16 I will satisfy him with a long life and show him My salvation.


Isaiah 4:5-6

5 Then the Lord will create a cloud of smoke by day and a glowing flame of fire by night over the entire site of Mount Zion and over its assemblies. For there will be a canopy over all the glory, 6 and there will be a booth for shade from heat by day, and a refuge and shelter from storm and rain.


Revelation 7:9-17

A Multitude from the Great Tribulation
9 After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice: Salvation belongs to our God, who is seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb!
11 All the angels stood around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures, and they fell facedown before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying: Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength
be to our God forever and ever. Amen.
13 Then one of the elders asked me, “Who are these people robed in white, and where did they come from?”  14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” Then he told me: These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 For this reason they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day and night in His sanctuary.  The One seated on the throne will shelter them:
16 They will no longer hunger; they will no longer thirst;
the sun will no longer strike them, nor will any heat.
17 For the Lamb who is at the center of the throne
will shepherd them; He will guide them to springs of living waters,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.


Daniel 9:24-27

Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city—
to bring the rebellion to an end, to put a stop to sin,
to wipe away iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness,
to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy place.
25 Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree
to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince
will be seven weeks and 62 weeks. It will be rebuilt with a plaza and a moat,
but in difficult times.
26 After those 62 weeks the Messiah will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the coming prince will destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end will come with a flood, and until the end there will be war;
desolations are decreed.
27 He will make a firm covenant with many for one week,
but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and offering.
And the abomination of desolation will be on a wing of the temple
until the decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator.”

Matthew 24:15-31


The Great Tribulation
15 “So when you see the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place” (let the reader understand), 16 “then those in Judea must flee to the mountains! 17 A man on the housetop must not come down to get things out of his house. 18 And a man in the field must not go back to get his clothes. 19 Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days! 20 Pray that your escape may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 21 For at that time there will be great tribulation, the kind that hasn’t taken place from the beginning of the world until now and never will again! 22 Unless those days were limited, no one would survive. But those days will be limited because of the elect. 23 “If anyone tells you then, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Over here!’ do not believe it! 24 False messiahs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25 Take note: I have told you in advance. 26 So if they tell you, ‘Look, He’s in the wilderness!’ don’t go out; ‘Look, He’s in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever the carcass is, there the vultures will gather.


The Coming of the Son of Man
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days: The sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not shed its light; the stars will fall from the sky,
and the celestial powers will be shaken.
30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples of the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

  1. Here is something that people may feel led to share with un-saved friends or loved ones. It is Mary K. Baxter’s testimony of 30 nights in hell and 10 nights in Heaven. Author Bette Stevens (Z3news) has been taken to hell three times now in the past several years for the purpose of warning people. Also, Bill Wiese has Youtube testimonies and several books out including “23 Minutes in Hell” and “23 Questions About Hell.” All of his books are backed up with lots and lots of Scripture. This is about 28 minutes.

    “Just as Moses raised the serpent staff for the people, so too have I lifted My staff for the people. Many have seen and believe – many more have sadly ignored it and fall under the hand of My might. Lives, like vapors, will quickly disappear. The downfall of the mighty ones has begun. None will expect what is coming.

    Anguish of soul, without repentance soon will sweep the lands filled with idolatry and sin. Your sins have found you out. Oh wicked nations, as did Israel, you too thought I neither saw nor heard. How dreadfully mistaken you have been to trust in the things of the world, the words, the works of man.

    What awaits man is grievous – Abba Father’ heart is heavy as each judgment is meted out. There is no other way for the disobedience of man demands a strong correction to bring repentance and return hope to a generation of hopelessly lost.”

    “He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.” Proverbs 28:13
    “For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire..” 2 Thessalonians 1:6-7
    “And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead.” Acts 10:42

  3. Daily Devotional — 07/30/2016:

    “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.” Matthew 18:35

    In Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, a street-witnessing team became involved in an extraordinary situation. A young Mexican called Samuel would walk for two hours each day to join them and act as an interpreter. They discovered that Samuel’s mother and sister had been murdered and that he witnessed the killings but, despite trying to intervene, was unable to stop them. He said he knew the man who did it.

    He had a desire to go and avenge the killings, but then became a Christian and his whole attitude changed. He began a Bible study group now attended by twenty people. On the final night of the meetings, he saw the man he believed had murdered his mother and sister go forward to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior. Samuel made his way through the throng of people and shook his hand and welcomed him “into the Kingdom.” Samuel was able to forgive him.

    In Jesus’ teaching, there is little doubt that, as a Christian, I MUST forgive those who have wronged me. Then our human, time-bound minds cry out with the loud fleshly inquiry—“WHY?”

    Again Philip Yancey points out that through the process of forgiveness we realize we are not as different from the wrongdoer as we would like to think. And we end up linked on the same side.

    In essence, God linked Himself with us humans in the incarnation. Somehow God had to come to terms with these creatures He desperately wanted to love. On earth, living among us, he learned what it was like to be human—yet without sin. But He put Himself on our side. God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us.

    Forgiveness is a key component of the victorious, overcomer. This is the way of the cross to becoming “more than conquerors.”

    As a young Christian in Cambodia, Cham witnessed a Khmer Rouge soldier—a youth he knew from school—bludgeon his mother to death by hitting her repeatedly over the head with a wooden board.

    Cham suffered from severe depression over memories of that incident for many months. But eventually the Lord helped him gain victory over it.

    Ten years later, Cham was walking down the main street of Phnom Penh and saw that young man who had killed his mother. The young man was very fearful of revenge when he recognized Cham approaching him. With moist eyes Cham looked at him and said, “In the name of Jesus, I forgive you!” Cham was free.

    RESPONSE: I accept today that forgiveness is a must for me as a follower of Jesus.

    PRAYER: Thank you, Lord, for so many rich examples of the freeing beauty of forgiveness.

  4. Here is Diana Pulliam’s prophetic dream which seems to correlate with Jeff Byerly’s word above. Diana has commented on Linda’s Blog (and I believe this blog also) from time to time. She is a Z3news contributor.

    1. That article you shared Stig, also shows how people will gladly take the “mark” when they are given lies by Satan that tells them they can become a “god” — (little g) — of their own lives. I’m sure many lies will be promised to the masses.


      1. I just re-listened to “I Saw the Tribulation” (super detailed vision of tribulation given to him in 1980) by Ken Peters, and he mentions that TV’s made after 1992 have the ability to WATCH US as we’re watching. Also, he mentioned that “Fyber-Optics” in Computer/Phone/TV plans gives the ability for them to record millions of calls/data. He said the Fyper-Optics was about their increased ability to track us.

        Go ahead and track. I can’t be silent any longer, and “Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.”


      2. Indeed will be offered. But by accepting this chip a person will be subject to control by other forces. There recently was a report that all books written through human history could fit on an object the size Of a poststamp.

        They can do miraculous things with this chip but ultimately without the Lord the subjects Of IT will be even deeper in slavery.


  5. Excellent post James! Always so very timely.

    Peggy, I’ve had dreams regarding these times and healing others in and through Jesus! In the dreams they were young people, now young adults with children. How I long to see others know Him and escape the pits of hell.
    The shaking that is coming is going to get many on their knees, yet, many will be angered and feel un-faired upon. Not being able to finish building their earthly, fleshly lives here, they will be angry at God, allowing great deception in, as the anger sways them to the enemies side. Prayer for those to wake up and know, truly know the Truth, the only Way Maker.

    Train up a child……so many of these are wayward children, and for such a time as this, I now understand the “when they are old” as being the times we are in. Children with the Word sowed deep in their hearts will recall the the parents and grandparents words sown into their lives. I believe this is the young generation that so many have prophesied yet instead of the prophesy being a huge revival for the times it was spoken, it will be in the end hour with a boldness that will not be shaken

    1. The idea Of rearing children to maturity by the Word Of God was already emphazised heavily by the Lord in the books Of Moses. And you Sonshine put to words what should be taught in every Elementary School in he world.

      By this teaching i estimate that roughly 90% Of th worlds trouble would be eliminated in 2 generations. Of course this is not kingdomtheology where the faithful should prepare the world ready for Christ at his coming.

      Sin will always live in us until we go to Christ or he comes back.

  6. Daily Devotional — 07/31/2016:

    Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

    Ron Boyd-MacMillan shares the story of Sister Lin and family from North Korea. As Christians, she and her husband prayed for a child for years. After many years she finally conceived. They asked God for a safe delivery because it was now the severe famine period of the mid-1990’s.

    Her husband went to search for food but came home weeping. All he could offer her was bark from a tree to make soup. It was not enough to nourish a woman with child. Then her husband went further afield to find food and was shot to death by soldiers as he foraged food from the garbage bags on a train. She was now alone.

    When contractions started, she lay on the ground and gave birth to a dead baby boy. She named him after her husband and buried the body. From there she began to walk north and crossed the river into China. A Korean Christian family in China nurtured her back to health.

    Telling Ron her story, she asked, “Can I forgive God for making the world this way?” Many of us, if honest, would acknowledge that we often have doubts about God when we see the suffering and pain in our world, just like Sister Lin. But we should value our doubts because they end up bringing God close.

    Ron answered her poignant question with another question, “Why are you still a Christian?”

    Sister Lin replied, “First because my Lord died young and alone in excruciating pain without knowing why either. And secondly, because I have gradually come to see that God’s care is everywhere to be seen, if I can look beyond my own suffering.”

    RESPONSE: Today I will look beyond the suffering I see around me and see God’s love and care.

    PRAYER: Thank You Lord that You do care for Your creation and that in our moments of doubt You draw close and reveal the truth of Your love and care.

  7. Note — We need to keep everyone in prayer that is in a position of teaching, preaching or has a gift of prophecy. Pray that they stay in God’s will and only share what is given from him. Any of us can be fooled into believing the truth in a “mixture”. That mixture can be dangerous, if someone is professing: “A Word From The Lord”, “Thus Sayeth The Lord”, “The Holy Spirit Told me”….
    So many are not waiting for confirmation on what they claim is from the Lord, and are getting caught up in their own thoughts or possibly even Churchian Doctrine. Ask the Lord for: Clarity, Discernment and Wisdom in all things.

    1. People get carried away with this “chip” thing. I’m happy Stig sent the link to chipping so I’d have an excuse to address it… The chip alone cannot be the mark of the beast. It could however be an integral part or requirement for mark completion, (stamp of approval).. The mark is the denial of Christ. More specifically the renunciation of Christ, along with Swearing allegiance TO the anti-Christ . (Obama) states that he himself is God and further states that the world needs a single, all sovereign entity to rule over the entire world. Obama is amply decadent, perverted enough, and LOW enough to “shine” in executing the office of anti-Christ. To some, this scenario of Obama being the anti-Christ is a ridiculous notion. However, when everything collapses and there is no food for yourself and family, and you cannot buy or sell without being part of Obama’s Club, club membership will be very appealing. The mark will insure that we belong to and are a part of a covenant. This is a covenant with satan, replacing God’s covenant with the Born Again Christian. Absolute loyalty to the system along with a sworn oath will be implemented. There is only one unpardonable sin. That sin is the knowing or the understanding (in your spirit) of God’s plan of salvation through the atoning blood of The Lord Jesus Christ, and refusing this Divine offer, after being convicted and convinced by The Holy Ghost that God’s plan of salvation is factual. At one point in everyone’s life this truth is made evident by The Holy Ghost.


      1. Here’s the scripture for “Mark of the Beast (will be required after denouncing faith or put to death/imprisoned)” and “Unpardonable Sin (aka Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit)”
        Revelation 13:16-17
        16 And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of his name.

        Matthew 12
        Because of this, I tell you, people will be forgiven every sin and blasphemy, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the one to come.


  8. My personal take on the unpardonable sin against the Holy Spirit — One Example would be to claim a true prophet of the Lord is listening to demons, when in fact they are hearing only from the Lord! Another example — giving credit to Satan for something the Holy Spirit did! Another example could be blaming the Holy Spirit for something Satan did! Sometimes it’s very important that we keep quiet, if we don’t have confirmation about something! We best not be telling people the “Holy Spirit said, The Lord said or God said something” unless we have confirmation or the ability to know for sure. Again, we all need Clarity, Discernment and Wisdom.


    1. I think we’re saying the same thing JC. The ultimate blasphemy of The Holy Spirit is rejection of The Holy Ghost, (Spirit). When we belittle, make fun of, and in general demean the Godship and work (wooing) of The Holy Ghost, we are rejecting Him. (or blaspheming Him). It would seem that according to Scripture, for someone to blaspheme the Holy Ghost, one would have to know that the Holy Ghost is actually at work, and give the credit, “work” to Satan. An example of this point would be the religious leaders knowing Jesus was the Christ, but rejecting Him anyway. God holds us accountable for what we know. Not for what we don’t know. Rejection of God The Holy Ghost in any form is the unpardonable sin. We blaspheme Him when we reject Him in any way. Ridicule, speaking against Him (The Holy Ghost) Cursing against Him etc. No Christian would blaspheme the Holy Ghost.

      1. When we reject Christ, we blaspheme the Holy Spirit because no one comes to Christ without being wooed by the Holy Spirit. When we renounce Christ, we renounce The Godhead in their entirety. We speak against The Holy Ghost. They are separate, yet inseparable. I hope I explained what I meant correctly.


    2. The thing is…no one has the ability to be certain another is NOT hearing from the Holy Spirit, EXCEPT God.

      1 Corinthians 2:10 (KJV) – But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

      So we must be very cautious about thinking or judging anyone you say’s, ” I was led by the Holy Spirit, or Holy Spirit says”…etc. as though they haven’t. Judging is sinful and sin comes from the enemy…so it could be possible those who are judging that another isn’t led by the Holy Spirit are the ones being fooled. Very tricky stuff!

      Example…I myself have used the words, “I was led by the Holy Spirit”. No one in the flesh can say I wasn’t led by the Holy Spirit…it’s between each individual and our all knowing Lord. I personally would never want to say such a thing that isn’t truly from the Lord. Ones Clarity, Discernment, Wisdon…etc. comes from the Lord not man.

      Most whom I talk to about my paintings do not believe such a thing possible. That is, the Holy Spirit painting through me. This doubt is hurtful and the more I hear it, and see it I began to doubt it to be true myself. Yet I know better, I know the beauty of being in the spirit. This place like no other. I know the love transmitted by the Holy Spirit, I know what I know and I know there is not one person in the flesh on this earth that could bring that kind of love and beauty to us…but our Father in Heaven. I hear this doubt of others over and over and it begins to make one doubt themselves and their relationship with the Holy Spirit. I’m fully aware that this inflected doubt is coming from the enemy.

      Yet…this Satan spirit has the ability to trick even the souls who have experienced the beauty of Christ Jesus that was unique to them. It must be rebuked on both accounts. We must be careful not to allow the enemy to raise doubts and judge others of the gifts that were given to them through the love and direction of the Holy Spirit…AND we must not allow the enemy to fool us into believing our own Holy Spirit led gifts are false.

      2 Corinthians 11:13-14(KJV) -For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

      Romans 8:7 (KJV) – Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

      Yes, I agree we must take everything to the Lord for HIS clarity…most certainly!

      James 1:22 (KJV) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

      I Praise the Lord in all things, for it is by way of my mistakes that I draw closer and close to my Father in Heaven, my Lord and Savoir Jesus, Christ. AMEN

      1. In agreement with you Vicki. If we claim someone isn’t listening to the Holy Spirit when they say something, we could be guilty of blasphemy. . I’d be more cautious if I was a prophet/preacher or teacher and made the claims “The Holy Spirit said, etc..”, but didn’t have Clarity, Discernment or Wisdom. What I state in this post and others, is the need for people to truly wait on the Lord before they release something. Some words given to them may be just for them, have a specific audience or it could be meant to be released at a later date. I have had to limit my subscriptions due to people making claims that contradict the word of God. Some people are telling others that everything is ok, when in fact we are to keep praying, helping others and work on our relationship with the Lord.

        The biggest thing we all need to remember is “God never changes. He’s the same today as he was yesterday”. He doesn’t issue a statement of fact one day, and then say “Just kidding or never mind”.

  9. Here’s what it says in scripture, which clearly states that all who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.

    We can only know for sure what it says in scripture, and can’t take away from or add to it.

    Romans 10:13
    For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

    Let me repeat what it says in scripture about blasphemy.

    Matthew 12
    Because of this, I tell you, people will be forgiven every sin and blasphemy, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the one to come.

    Philippians 3:12-14
    Reaching Forward to God’s Goal
    12 Not that I have already reached the goal or am already fully mature, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. 13 Brothers, I do not[a] consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, 14 I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly

  11. Daily Devotional — 08/01/2016:

    My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:2

    A few months ago a North Korean man successfully waded across the Tumen River into China looking for food, money and work in order to return later to his home country with help for his family. He was befriended by Korean-Chinese Christians (not an uncommon scenario among refugees there). As he sat in Christian meetings, an older woman said to him, “Receive the Holy Spirit or you can’t go back into North Korea; it’s too dangerous!”

    After many discussions with believers, he confessed Jesus as Lord of his life and received the Holy Spirit. He packed Bibles along with his food cargo and crossed the river back to North Korea. Though it was a full moon night, there were no guards since everyone was watching North Korea play football (soccer) against Brazil in the World Cup games in South Africa.

    As soon as he arrived home, he began talking about his new relationship with God. His family became irate. The young man’s uncle tried to beat this “new idea” of God and Jesus out of him shouting, “How can you believe these things?”

    The young man replied, “How can you not? Without God how do the sun and moon rotate?” The Holy Spirit gave words to the surprised young man. Soon the beating was forgotten and the uncle was listening intently. The whole family of this young man ultimately received Jesus as Saviour and Lord.

    On returning to China for further training, he commented that unless people are filled with the Holy Spirit they should not go back to North Korea because the spiritual warfare is worse than ever.

    He concluded, “Only with the Holy Spirit’s help can we be bold. Pray for me that when I am caught I may be bold in my faith.”

    RESPONSE: Today I will rely on the Holy Spirit to make me bold in my witness.

    PRAYER: Lord, my soul, my heart, my flesh, cry out to You for the filling and power of Your Holy Spirit.

    1. Interesting video from Jason…I like what he puts together, it shows what’s happening around the world…stuff our media never reports

      Very, very strange things happening everywhere in the world. How can we be in our 60’s, 70’s 80’s etc. and never have experienced storms, flash flooding, (it rained 6 inches in one spot in Maryland on Sat. evening) strange sounds, masses of dead animals, strange cloud formations, sightings, fires, etc., etc., etc.?

      And then there’s the news….lots of keys words/phrases being spoken from the media and leaders that were never used before. I call it subliminal messages. Both the Presidential candidates are using them also. They say things in such a manner (like an afterthought). In just the last few weeks (one must pay close attention) I’ve heard “Obama and a “third term” several times” and also the suggestion of “martial law”, again, several times. Interestingly enough…not much being said about the stock market…for now. If you listen closely it feels as though they’re trying to pick a fight with Russia, a very dangerous thing to do. I also have a very strong impression (not a new observation) that Trump is a decoy. Who in the world would run for the highest office in America and talk the way he does, saying the things he says the way he says them? I feel He has NO intentions of becoming President…which all makes perfect sense. All part of the plan.

      Those who live under a rock have been duped by the whole circus…what a show. Like the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus use to advertise…

      “THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH”! Um “SHOW” being the key word.

      All a sign of the times.

      We must pray for the masses to wake up!

    2. Check this out……….was complaining about chem trails being sprayed heavy again because I was so out of it yesterday. Had a good long weekend visit with visiting family and yesterday was just totally dizzy, trouble putting words together and the whole nine yards. Today I’ve worked harder than I have in years and still have things to get done……odd. I did warfare prayer over the house, self and all yesterday evening. It was even hard to pray aloud…..



      1. Thanks for sharing that with us Sonshine. We see the chem sprays all the time, but take authority in the name of Jesus so they cause no harm. I’ve sometimes asked the Lord if he’d instead change those things to filtered HEPA air with a sweet smell instead. Sometimes I ask the Lord if he can cause the pilots to hear Hymns, every time they push a Chemical button.

      2. This has the RF info. I read up on it a few years ago. The military can use it to change peoples behavior or kill them. I have no doubt the “cell” towers cause issues. Technology is so much further along than I ever imagined, and this is a small thing..

    My children, there are very difficult times coming when all around you will be in darkness. Much betrayal shall abound, and trust in relationships will almost become a thing of the past for you.

    I am revealing to some of you now that those you have believed trustworthy cannot be trusted and do not have your best interest at heart.

    This will be painful for you as you realize your trust is misplaced. Many of you shall suffer terrible betrayals in this time that you may know without any doubt this is so. Going forward, the price of betrayal will be much higher for you.

    Be courageous, My children, as I remove some of those near you so you may see.

    Proverbs 19:5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.

    Matthew 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

    Luke 22:3-6

    3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

    4 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

    5 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.

    6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

    Jeremiah 12:6 For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee.

    Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

    Psalm 7:1 O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

    Psalm 56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

    “Many are called but few are chosen continues to be true today as man strives to succeed in life. His hopes, his dreams built on shifting sand shortly will begin to crumble. Man will run to and fro seeking answers but find none as they seek man to repair the damage, seeking man, but not the Maker of mankind.

    Oh foolish of heart – your castles in the sand will not serve you in the day of wrath soon coming upon the nations who have forgotten their God.

    There is little man can do apart from Me that benefits others. The selfish nature of man destroys the goodness. You refuse to see what is before you. Consumed by the world you move closer to destruction as you clamor for more.

    America’ heart is cold and hard. If you can pass bills to murder the innocent and allow sodomy to become the law of your land, expect nothing but My wrath. For I have spoken clearly but you have refused to listen. Revival without repentance is not an option for rebellious man.”

    “But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God..” Romans 2:5

    “Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end…” Hebrews 3:12-15

    “For My people are foolish, They know Me not; They are stupid children and have no understanding – They are shrewd to do evil, but to do good they do not know.” Jeremiah 4:22


  14. Daily Devotional — 08/02/16

    When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Matthew 10:23a

    One of the clear biblical responses to persecution is to flee. But it is not the only response. Thus it is imperative that the persecuted believer is sure that his running away is in the will of God. History is full of examples of Christians who relocated because of religious persecution.

    The early Christians in Jerusalem were not obeying Jesus’ orders in Acts 1:8 (evangelize to the ends of the earth) so God allowed an Acts 8:1 (persecution) to send them on their way. The original text indicates the persecution accomplished the will of God for as they scattered abroad, they went “gossiping” the gospel (Acts 8:4). The first meaning of the word “gossip” was “to chat” or “rehearse.” The early Christians, when scattered by persecution, could not help but repeat the glorious message of the gospel to everyone they met.

    The Apostle Paul left Damascus over the wall in a basket when a life threat was discovered early in his ministry. He was not just trying to avoid persecution, but he knew it was not yet God’s timing for his life and ministry to end. That occurred years later in Rome.

    Today an Egyptian Christian leader is in hiding because he has the highest price on his head—four times more than Osama Bin Laden ever had. Zakaria Botross’ entire life story is that of defying death. The total price for his elimination (a fatwa), at last report, was one hundred million dollars. This is because his ministry to Muslims is so challenging, effective and productive. If his arguments cannot be countered then his voice must be silenced.

    He was one of the most striking figures of the Coptic Orthodox Church. In 1964 he had a conversion experience which changed the direction of his ministry to thousands of people. Not only did Father Zakaria preach for conversions to Christ and to strengthen believers, he also effectively rebutted accusations against Christianity made by Islamic leaders. He is a scholar of ancient Arabic and knows the Koran and the Hadith (Islamic traditions) so thoroughly that Islamic scholars find it difficult to refute his teaching or counter his challenges.

    His zealous activities could not help but attract the notice of the authorities of the State. He was removed from his church. Twice he experienced imprisonment for ministering to Muslims and leading them to faith in Jesus. He was accused of the ultimate crime, evangelizing Muslims and thereby inciting religious factionalism. Then he was deported and exiled from Egypt. His subsequent ministry in Australia and the UK was successful but not with everyone’s approval.

    Today as an elderly senior, he lives in hiding in the West because more than sixty million people—most are Muslims—watch his satellite TV programs and visit his website. Countless millions across the Arabic speaking world are turning to Christ annually because of his ministry.

    Like the Apostle Paul, Father Zakaria runs and hides, not because he is afraid of dying, but by defying death has been able to have the most effective ministry in the world to Muslim people.

    RESPONSE: Today I will resolve to only run from persecution when I know it is the will of God.

    PRAYER: Pray for leaders like Zakaria Botross who have to live in hiding because of their effective ministry for the Lord and His church.

    1. Timely…my study is in Acts today.

      Heavenly Father, Thank You Father for all the many blessings You shower us with, but mostly thank You for your word, your promises. Today Father and only for now, for now is all we’re to think of…I pray for Your full Armor to spread across the land and protect us from the wiles of the enemy as we go about our day. I ask IN JESUS NAME that You take our thoughts captive and that we be obedient to You Lord and Your will, and that no fear may enter but only a spirit of power, and of love and of a sound mind. Thank You Jesus….Amen

      1. Amen Vicki. I’ve been reading Russ Dizdars book, The Black Awakening, and listening to his teachings on Revelation. I love how that man just flows with so much Holy Ghost boldness, it flows out to all who follow what the Lord gives him. So many are hurting and in bondage! Only the Power of the Living God can set them free!


  15. Trust Me
    Aug 02, 2016 06:00 am | Glynda Linkous

    My children, what your life looks like now and what I actually have planned for you look nothing alike.

    In order to get you where I need you to be, in order to move you into My blessings, I need to make changes in your lives. Some of these changes you will not agree with, they will seem negative to you.

    Do you trust Me? Do you truly trust Me with your life?

    Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

    Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    Isaiah 55:8-9

    8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

    9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
