WARNING: If God wants to do a work in you, let him do it

I am seeing people and ministries get sidelined and taken out. Darkness is rising and satanic delusions are rising exponentially. But so is God's guidance and power if we draw near to him.

I need to issue a warning, to myself and to anyone who will listen. If God wants to do a work in us, we need humble ourselves right away and let him do it. Dealing with issues of character, clearing out deceptions, healing wounds, receiving his direction. If we are walking with Jesus, we are all going through the wash right now. Because the Lord wants a clean bride when He returns. He also wants us to be sharp, polished arrows in his quiver to strike the enemy and expand the Kingdom of Heaven right now. A big revival is coming, though I have a feeling the window of opportunity will be short.

This is the hour of judgment. If we do not humble ourselves when the Holy Spirit comes calling, then we are consigning ourselves to judgment. Maybe at other times, these issues would have been allowed to slide or be deferred. But not now. This is the end.

If anyone does not understand that our nation has come under God's judgment, he or she is not listening to the Holy Spirit. I say that unequivocally and as a warning, because anyone who is not standing with the Lord when judgment hits will be swept away by it. When I say judgment, I am talking about what ancient Israel experienced, Old Testament-style SWORD, FAMINE AND PESTILENCE. These calamities are coming soon and have already begun.

The modern American church has been consumed by a false gospel. It says, "We just have to love everybody and talk about God's grace," but there is little or no mention of sin, repentance and judgment. I hear this message all the time on Christian radio. The message is popular and fills churches, but it's like a spiritual anesthesia that puts people to sleep. It makes people think they are walking with God, when they aren't. They may not even know God at all, but are deceived into thinking that attending "church" makes them Christians. The truth is we can only know God after He breathes life into our spirits - born again, as Jesus said.

The Lord's supernatural protection is for those who draw near to him and walk with him:

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say to the Lord, 'My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!'" - Psalm 91:1-2

For Christians who are not walking with God when judgment comes, it's going to mean one of three things:

1) The pressure of calamity will drive them to repentance and they will be restored, or

2) They will perish during the calamities and pass into eternity on a note of unfaithfulness, having lost the opportunity to serve the Kingdom of Heaven at the most critical hour. God is fair and absolutely rewards faithfulness. Please see the parable of the talents, or

3) They will suffer through the calamities and find themselves left behind after Jesus comes to rescue his bride before the Great Tribulation. I believe there will many tears of repentance when people realize how severe the consequences will be for not heeding the Lord when the opportunity was given. The Rapture is not for all Christians, but for those are walking with him when He comes. If you don't believe that, please see the parable of the ten virgins in Matthew 25. All ten were virgins, all had lamps and all wanted to see the bridegroom. But only the five who had extra oil for their lamps came to the wedding feast. These were the Christians who maintained their relationships with the Lord Jesus to the end. They stayed alert and persevered:

"Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." - Luke 21:34-36

"Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth." - Revelation 3:10

Again, God is fair, and mercy triumphs over judgment:
"...God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." - 1 Timothy 2:4-5

"He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name." - Revelation 3:12

The Great Surrender Is Coming - From Watchman's Cry

This article by Nathan Leal at Watchman's Cry is spot-on and I couldn't have said it better:

"The sword judgment is coming. It will trample the treasures of men, and the only thing that it will respect is the blood of Jesus and God’s covering of protection. This is found in repentance, and sheltering in the secret place of the most High."

Things Are Heating Up - Be Ready, But Don't Give In to the Hate

The Dallas "Black Lives Matter" sniper shooting police, Orlando "jihad" night club massacre, cell phone videos featuring police brutality. Things are heating up in this country and it is all by design. This is being orchestrated at the highest levels with the intention of pitting us against one another: Black against white, Democrat vs. Republican, communists vs. constitutionalists, Muslims vs. everyone else. Don't give in to the hatred and anger. The commander in chief intends to plunge the country into chaos and use it as a pretext for seizing authoritarian powers.

Jesus said this type of thing would happen in the end times:

"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom" - Matthew 24:7

The Greek word for "nation" in this verse is "ethnos," which also means race or ethnic group. It describes groups of people being pitted against one another, escalating into anger, hatred and violence. There is nothing to be gained by participating in this conflict. Our concern as Christians is to advance the kingdom of heaven, love one another and spread the truth.

But we should also be ready to defend ourselves, our families, friends and communities. Last month the Lord gave me an “object lesson” to underscore this point. An object lesson is what I call a real-life event that also has prophetic meaning.

On Sunday June 5 at about 10:30 pm, the kids were down, my wife went to bed and I felt like going for a nighttime walk since I didn’t exercise that day. A strange thought came to mind: “Will I be safe?” I wondered where that came from because my neighborhood is a quiet suburb on the edge of city limits. I did a gut check and thought, “No, I’ll be alright.” But just in case I tucked a gun under my shirt (I have a concealed carry permit) and carried a flashlight.

It was a hot night. As I walked away from my house, I noticed a few people walking behind me in the same direction. I wondered who they were because the only neighbors who normally walk that time of night were out of town. They disappeared and I continued walking for 45 minutes or so.

I returned through a schoolyard which connects to my neighborhood via a 50-yard path. Shining my flashlight, I saw what looked like a human form at the end of the path. Peculiar for late night on a Sunday because no one else was out. As I approached, I saw in fact three young men about high-school age, facing the path and standing still, almost in formation with one in front and two on his flanks. They were not wearing shirts and all had longish black hair that appeared to be pulled back with headbands. The scene felt bizarre and unnerving. I scanned their hands and didn’t see anything. So as I walked in front, I asked, “What are you guys going, just hanging out?” One answered, “Yeah.”

I crossed the street and heard one young man call to me, “That’s a bright flashlight. Where did you get it?” I looked over my shoulder and saw they were following after me kind of quickly. I mumbled, “I don’t know,” and picked up my pace. At this point I made a mental decision that if they rush me, I’m going to use my fists, unless one pulls out a weapon, then I’ll use my firearm.

I could feel a shot of adrenaline and then… Nothing. They peeled off and I walked the remaining 150 yards to my house.

Subsequent to this event I saw a dream/vision posted on Steve Quayle’s website ( that described a “panorama of violence that will soon take place in our own neighborhood streets.” This woman saw crowds of young people, angry and determined. “Some of the people had bandanas on their heads and they were on a mission to destroy. This crowd was lined up and gathered in the street and very synchronized.”

Young people? Bandanas? Lined up, gathered in the street and synchronized? That’s exactly what I saw that night, which confirmed the meaning of it for me: Things are going to get bizarre, dangerous and hit close to home. We need to be prepared.

Message from the Wildfire - The Light Has Come into the World

Last week a wildfire erupted around midnight on Table Rock, an iconic geological formation in the foothills behind Boise, Idaho. Table Rock has a prominent cross on it that lights up at night, which you can see here in this previous photo (from TripAdvisor):

My neighbor rang my doorbell at about 12:45 a.m. to warn me. I looked out my window and saw a wall of fire burning across the mesa next to Table Rock. My house sits at the base of the foothills about a mile away. I stayed up all night because the fire was moving toward my house until fire crews stopped it the next morning.

Note: Last fall my five-year-old daughter, who doesn't normally share her dreams, said she dreamed about a "volcano" that came to our neighbor's house but stopped before it reached our house. The morning after the fire, my daughter pointed to the scorched-black mesa and said, "That's a volcano."

The event was spectacular and had an apocalyptic feel. Crackling fire and smoke, flashing lights of emergency vehicles, people in the streets, lightning from the sky came down on the burn area and arced overhead.

The day after a someone sent my wife this image of the fire. I don't know who took the photo, but there's a message in it:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 

He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  

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.  

For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 

But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."

- John 3:16-21
