  1. A Watchman on the Wall — Posted: 25 Sep 2016 09:59 PM PDT

    “Tumultuous days coming soon to many lands. Lands filled with sins so great they can no longer be ignored by your holy God. Earthquakes, flood, pestilence, mankind chooses evil instead of good; mans hearts failing them for fear of what has come upon them.

    What is coming must come. You experience among your own a weakness, a sin that brings shame. Even among the seasoned Christian sin abounds. You have seen the evidence, felt the sting, and now judgment will be poured out that cleansing may come to those that follow Me.

    Examine carefully your walk with the LORD. Look deep within your heart. Listen to your words. Remember, I have told you, the enemy is subtle, cunning and experienced in deception and manipulation.

    My grace, My mercy no longer available to a rebellious people who have squandered opportunities to live a godly life. A life pleasing to Me – rejected by open rebellion and disobedient lifestyles. I have watched and I have waited, but no longer. Now comes retribution for rebellion and discipline for disobedience. Now oh man, you will see what comes of those who turn away from Me.

    Children you must prepare. Oh, you must prepare. You cannot stand the days ahead without much weeping and repentance. Examine yourself. Little time remains. Quickly comes heartache. Repent and live a life wholly dedicated to Me.

    You have left your first love. Your lives reflect the world and not My Word.

    Repent and return.”

    “Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12
    “This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.” John 3:19
    “Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.” Revelation 4:11
    “But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn from his way and he does not turn from his way, he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your life.” Ezekiel 33:9

  2. Some Scripture — 09/26/16

    2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

    10 and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, 12 so that all will be condemned—those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness.

    1. Well, I’m going to have to search because I have no clue yet. Maybe it’s one of encouragement with discernment. Back to searching LOL.
      The Lord moved mightily over 4 days and 3 nights for someone in bondage to addictions and major mental health issues mixed with dabbling in Satanism. This is an answered prayer for over 20 years!!! At this point I don’t know if Holy Spirit had me on hold, or had the person set in the right timing………..have just been basking in the goodness of the Lord and how He does what we cannot do, how He leads every detail, how He gives the Grace and anointing to “do” when He says do.
      What a new experience in the midst of so many personal limitations. I learned we do not place limitations on ourselves, because He empowers to HIS will when the timing is Him and not the flesh…He is removing all the “I cant’s” and and teaching baby steps in what it is to trust Him in what would appear impossible, moving out when He says move, standing in worship and Peace during long periods of intense attacks.

      I believe He is doing this across the body of believers seeking Him with whole hearts. One area that is so dire, is the transparency, someone to share things with as we walk this Way. Without this, it leaves an open door for the enemy to hit hard. This is a word of caution during these times many of us are not in a church, and having fellowship online. His Spirit connects us as one yet having a person(s) to confess attacks, stumbles, everything is a must. Thank you for the fellowship! I have one very special lady I drive up the wall most likely with emails, yet God uses her mightily in my life to remain an open book and vessel for Him and shut those doors of oppression and attacks! Confess your sins one to another that you may be healed 🙂

  3. Another example of what it means to stand for your faith, even during persecution.

    Daily Devotional — 09/27/16

    NORTH KOREA TESTIMONY
    And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:22-24

    After Gyeong Ju Son, a young woman from North Korea, gave her moving testimony at The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in Cape Town in October 2010, the 4200 participants from over 190 countries, came away stunned—many moved to tears.

    Born in Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, this petite 18-year-old is the daughter of a former high-ranking government leader—an assistant of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Il.

    In 1998, when Gyeong Ju was at the tender age of six, her father suffered severe political persecution and the family was forced to flee to China. It was there that her parents came to know the amazing grace and love of God. After only a few months, her mother, pregnant with their second child, died of leukemia.

    “It was in the midst of this family tragedy that my father joined a Bible study led by missionaries from South Korea and America, and after a time his strong desire was to become a missionary to North Korea,” she says.

    In 2001 her father was reported and arrested by the Chinese police, to be sent back to North Korea, where he was sentenced to prison. Desperately crying out to God during this time, his three-year incarceration only served to strengthen his faith. After his release he returned to China and Gyeong Ju Son was reunited briefly with her father.

    “Not long after he chose to return to North Korea—instead of enjoying a life of religious freedom in South Korea—to share Christ’s message of life and hope among the hopeless people of his homeland.”

    In 2006 her father’s work was discovered by the North Korean government and once again he was imprisoned. Not having heard from her father again, she assumes he has been publicly executed on charges of treason and espionage. This is often the fate of confessing Christians in North Korea.

    Left in China, Gyeong Ju Son was adopted for a while by the family of a young pastor, and it was their love, care, compassion and protection that made a deep impression on her. When they left for America she was given the opportunity to go to South Korea.

    RESPONSE: Today I give thanks for brothers and sisters who serve Jesus at the cost of their own lives.

    PRAYER: Pray today for those believers still living in North Korea and committed to evangelism.

  4. Someone once told me it was a sin to be in awe of what God does because it’s a lack of faith. Well, when He does what seems impossible in areas, doesn’t He deserve to be “awed?”

    “My people, there are dangers from other worlds you know not of. My people are unaware of dangers that lurk in the darkness around them, and these dangers are coming to the earth.
    Find your refuge in Me, children, for there is no power on earth not of Me that can defeat these powers that are coming. Only those found in Me will survive.”

    2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

    Hebrews 11:3
    3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

    1. Ok, good post and timely. After being literally bombed with chemtrails here in TX, this morning while dark is CLEAR and I can see the stars. There are small odd lights all over wayyyyyyyyy up there moving around and no I am not losing it. I just know it’s all part of it. Have never seen them before.
      So day before yesterday no mosquitos out here (farm, with many critters to help care for) and yesterday afternoon was like a horror movie. We (visiting kids) were moving some calves and they were so thick there was no space on clothes to keep free of them. Even with repellent. Seeking the Lord on this, there’s more in this last chemtrail spraying than ever before and my thoughts are release also of the bugs! Kids are all of a sudden ill, respiratory, woke up stopped up and cough last night but am quoting the Word right back at the enemy and getting ready for a time in worship.
      Just odd, odd things that are going on in sight….

    NORTH KOREA TESTIMONY – PART 2
    Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:17

    At the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in Cape Town in October 2010, North Korean Gyeong Ju Son shared her moving life story. Here is the conclusion.

    While staying at the Korean Consulate in Beijing, waiting to go to South Korea, her life was dramatically and irrevocably changed when Jesus came to her in a dream. She says:

    “He had tears in His eyes. He walked towards me and asked ‘Gyeong Ju, how much longer are you going to keep me waiting? Walk with me. Yes, you have lost your earthly father, but I am your heavenly Father and whatever has happened to you, was because I love you.’”

    Praying to God for the very first time, she gave Him her heart, soul, mind and strength, asking that she would be used at His will. A deep love for the lost people of North Korea and the need to bring the love of Jesus to them has subsequently become her life purpose. She continues:

    “I look back over my short life and I see God’s hand everywhere. Six years in North Korea, eleven in China and now in South Korea. Everything I suffered; all the sadness and grief, all that I have experienced and learned; I want to give it all to God and use my life for His Kingdom. In this way I also hope to bring honor to my father.”

    Now a student, the intention of this young and vibrant follower of Christ is to go to university to study political science and diplomacy, and then work for the rights of the voiceless in North Korea. She concluded:

    “Brothers and sisters here in this place, I humbly ask you to pray that the same light of God’s grace and mercy that reached my father and my mother and now me, will one day soon dawn upon the people of North Korea, my people!”

    RESPONSE: Today I will continue to believe that God takes terrible situations and turns them into good.

    PRAYER: Lord, we pray that you will call many youths like Gyeong Ju to minister among the needy people of North Korea.

  7. Hi James. Re, the article. Just my humble thoughts on this…….We can pray to have family, the Bride, loved ones and even certain areas (homes etc) God has ordained as safe places of refuge for last days witnessing etc.
    This part of the article also really screams at me: “Our governmental authorities, intelligence agencies and local law enforcement agencies are working together diligently to root out plots and plans and stop them before they can be carried out, but we believe divine intervention is needed to help them. Please join with us in prayer to this end.”
    WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!? Do they not see that we are the ones promoting all this????

    Personally on a national/worldwide level I believe we are praying against Gods will to stop the forces He has allowed as judgement. Uhg, hope I worded all this right.

    I’m sorry, I see praying for the lost, praying for leaders, yes praying for the terrorists to have a damascus road experience etc.
    I also see people using Romans to fit the NWO. This is one I’ve been praying about personally. I would certainly not battle against being arrested etc. There are souls to reach no matter where we are. The article in itself……….she’s missed the whole thing thinking governmental authorities are working together diligently FOR any good

    1. James, the verse we walk by faith, not by sight came to mind when you said “take authority” over them. (the chems) It took me till yesterday afternoon for that Holy Ghost boldness to rise up and go to war in Him over this area and others. Thank you for the reminder. When feeling ill it can take a 2X4 over a bit to war against when it first hits.

      Per Bette. We walk by faith, not by sight is going to be so very important in these times we are not only in but about to witness.
      OH how I long to hear Him QUICKLY, all the time not just off and on!!!! I had a backlash from an old friend who used to be a witch (and has NOT been through deliverance yet) as soon as a mighty praise report from the Lord happened. I did recognize it when she called yet…..the battle was a bit intense afterward.

      This stepping back out into what the Lord has for us to do, doesn’t come without resistance YET, I am finding the stuff hits afterwards more than all else. His Spirit leads, equips, actually just simply does all we can not do in our own flesh. Learning oh learning but what a mighty God we serve!!!!!

      I began to put part of the scripture on here but the whole chapter is so very perfect for the hour.
      2 Corinthians 5 (ASV)

      5 For we know that if the earthly house of our [a]tabernacle be dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens. 2 For verily in this we groan, longing to be clothed upon with our habitation which is from heaven: 3 if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 For indeed we that are in this [b]tabernacle do groan, [c]being burdened; not for that we would be unclothed, but that we would be clothed upon, that what is mortal may be swallowed up of life. 5 Now he that wrought us for this very thing is God, who gave unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6 Being therefore always of good courage, and knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord 7 (FOR WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT); 8 we are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord. 9 Wherefore also we [e]make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well-pleasing unto him. 10 For we must all be made manifest before the judgment-seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things done [f]in the body, according to what he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

      11 Knowing therefore the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest unto God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences. 12 We are not again commending ourselves unto you, but speak as giving you occasion of glorying on our behalf, that ye may have wherewith to answer them that glory in appearance, and not in heart. 13 For whether we [g]are beside ourselves, it is unto God; or whether we are of sober mind, it is unto you. 14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and he died for all, that they that live should no longer live unto themselves, but unto him who for their sakes died and rose again. 16 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more. 17 Wherefore if any man is in Christ, [h]he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new. 18 But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and gave unto us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 to wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not reckoning unto them their trespasses, and having [i]committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

      20 We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beseech you on behalf of Christ, be ye reconciled to God. 21 Him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him.

    What Will Heaven Be Like?

    What do you think heaven will be like? When people wonder about heaven they usually think in terms of what the living conditions might be or what the environment is going to look like. A lot of people have a mental picture of heaven that looks much like Oz, or Disneyland, or a cloudy world of winged, harp-strumming creatures. Although the book of Revelation gives some insight to what heaven will look like, the real issue is not the environment. Although streets of gold might seem exciting now, they will pale in comparison to the glory of God!

    What makes heaven is not the carpeting or the wallpaper, it is Who we will be with and what we will become. People sometimes wonder what they will do in heaven. It seems that some folks are worried that heaven will be boring. Many people think heaven is going to be like an eternal retirement village.

    In Heaven We Will Be Thoroughly Joyful

    The day is coming when you will be a thoroughly joyful person down to the marrow of your bones.

    “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:4, NIV)

    Paul says that the glory to come is so overwhelming that if we were to put it on a scale, the suffering of this present time would not even register. Let’s get personal. Think for a moment about your deepest hurt. Your worst loss. Your most difficult relationship. The place in your heart that is most breakable. The biblical hope is not that when you become a Christian you get a free pass from the sufferings of this present age. The biblical hope is that you can trust God today, right now. Take your broken heart to Him.

    Continue to obey Him. Keep trusting Him day after day, because one day God Himself is going to look you in the eye and wipe away every tear. You will be a thoroughly joyful person for all of eternity.

    In Heaven We Will Be Astoundingly Productive

    If you remember the story of Adam and Eve in Genesis, then you know we have all been created in God’s image. In Paradise, before sin ever entered the world, human beings were called to be productive! We were made to work and be fruitful, to reign in cooperation with God over His creation. After the fall work became painful. But productive, life-giving, meaningful work has always been part of God’s vision for us! The need to contribute is central to who we are, and it will still be part of who we are in the new paradise of heaven. In fact, only in heaven will our gifts and abilities be fully actualized and our need to contribute fully expressed.

    In Heaven We Will Be Morally Flawless

    Human beings prefer darkness because of their sin. We can all understand about wanting to hide. There are things we do, and parts of who we are, that we prefer no one else would know. Sometimes we feel as if we are moving in slow motion in our struggle for growth, our battle to overcome. The day is coming when there will be no more darkness (Revelation 21:23). We will not need to hide; our character will be perfected. God will make everything new, and that includes you and me. There will be no need for a temple because God will fill every inch of heaven. We will be home with the Father at last. God wants to shine His light on every area of darkness in our lives. He does not want to wait until our life ends. He wants to let His light shine right now.
