There are churches today that wish to become spiritual fly paper. While they bring many people into the knowledge of the Gospel and up to the gateway of salvation. Few are willing to graduate their flock into the world to truly serve God. More time is spent in bureaucratic meetings then evangelizing Christ. While some serve by doing good works, others through bible study, most edify themselves in all manner of vain activities. They’re busy places but lack significant “spiritual heat.”

If you have reached a point in your life where you understand:

  1. God is God
  2. The Bible is True
  3. Christ is who he says he is

Then it’s time for you to do the will of Christ who saved you! Organized worship is essential, fellowship with True Christians should be a comfort in a cruel world, but there comes a time when you need to “Go tell it on the mountain!”

The 12 apostles stayed with Christ while he was on the earth but after he ascended they went their own ways spreading the good news. Evangelism is not for everyone, but there is not a single one of us that can’t do more to serve the kingdom of God. Let us not be confused. A building can be a Church, but a Church is more than a building. If more time and effort is spent in that building than serving Christ in the world. You’re just a modern day idolater.

If we look at Jesus instructions, and specifically the rebuke of the seven churches in the book of Revelation. We can see the kind of church that Christ favors most is the church of Philadelphia. In fact it is the only type of church that will pass though tribulation unscathed.

This is what Jesus says about fasting:

 Luke 5 34:35

“And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? 35 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days why should they when the bridegroom is with them?

So I prayed to be guided on the topic and was lead to these  four fasts that are mentioned in Zechariah.

Tzom Tammuz: The Fast of the 4th Month.
17th of Tammuz(Jun/Jul)

This marks the falling of wall of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar and the cessation of Temple worship during the siege of Titus.

Tishah B’Av:The Fast of the 5th Month.
9th of Av(Jul/Aug)

A fast day remembering the tragedies of the Jewish people. Many people also fast on the first of Av, since this is the yahrzeit of Aaron the High Priest. The Fast of Tishah B’Av is the second most important fast in Judaism (next to Yom Kippur, which is the most important fast day). On the eve of the Tishah B’Av fast, it is customary to eat a boiled egg sprinkled with ashes…

Tzom Gedaliah: The Fast of the 7th Month.
3rd Tishri(Sept/Oct)

The fast right after Rosh Hashanah honoring the murder of the Judean governor Gedaliah who was appointed by Nebuchadnezzar and served as a protectorate for the poor left behind in Judah. He listened to what God told Jeremiah the prophet: Jeremiah 40:9 “Fear not the to be servants of the Chaldees: dwell in the land, and serve the King of Babylon and it will be well with you” Unfortunately he didn’t listen to Johana and all of the all captains of the forces in the field who warned Gedaliah that Ishmael of the seed royal, was going to kill him. They even offered to go an kill Ishmael for him, in fear that the remnant of Judah would be scattered and perish.

Asarah B’Tevet: The Fast of the the 10th Month
10th of Tevet(Dec/Jan)

A fast day signifying the fall of the Jerusalem. In the State of Israel, Kaddish (the Jewish prayer for the deceased) is recited on this day for people whose date or place of death is unknown.

One thing I have to mention is that the disobedience of Ishmael came to me a few days before this post. The point is no one was listing to the man of God Jeremiah and his prophetic warning.

That’s more than a lyric in a popular song, it seems more and more people are feeling that way.

Personally, I  have witnessed miracles. Like being delivered out of the hand of a borderline incompetent medical diagnosis. To seeing my Mother who was dying of cancer “rejuvenate” in her Spirit 3 days after having a serious talk about Jesus. To being “compelled” to land a plane right after take off in perfect weather just before a micro-burst hit with record  winds over 150 miles per hour that destroyed 9 aircraft  tied down on the ground. To being rescued by my dog  from falling into a pit of snakes while on a camping trip in my youth.

So  I asked that in prayer and got a disturbing but Truthful answer.

Jeremiah 12 10-11

“Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. * 11 They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth to heart”

Isaiah 13:11

And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. 12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. 13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

This sounds like a pole shift of the earth doesn’t it? God is in charge he sees all and his wrath is to come. Repent and accept Jesus, he is the only way. Yes the world may start to hate you, and eventually by the words of Jesus if we are,living in the end of days many people will, but it is worth it. The creator of the universe and all that is in it God Almighty who knows and sees all things is good. He is giving you a chance to save yourselves. Why won’t you truly except Jesus and repent?

UPDATE Feb 5th 2013:

Sometime after Babylon falls, as shown in Isaiah 21 verse 9, the Earth will be subjected to the wrath of God, that is why it is so important for you to accept Jesus NOW and repent. God is even going to DISSOLVE the whole Earth!

Isaiah 24 1:6

“Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.  And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.  The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.  The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.  Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left

Download this 1 page study guide Revelation Timeline PDF All of the seals and the bowl judgments, all of the things described in Matthew 24 and all of the new and old testament ARE GOING TO HAPPEN. No one but Jesus Christ can save you.

Isaiah 24 10:15

“The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.  In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea.  Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea

Confusion = Babylon I’t also can mean Tyranny. City (qiryah kir-yaw’) = means the sense of flooring and if you think about it from an Angels view point looking down you can see that why you fly over an entire populated nation the whole thing looks like one pattern of squares like flooring. So this could be more then just a city as we think of it.

Glorify the LORD, accept Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ now! Only the Church of Philadelphia is going to be removed from the earth before these events.  So abide in Jesus.

Isaiah 24 17:21

“Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.  The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.  The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.”

The good news is Jesus has overcome this world and is with those who believe in him.

Isaiah 21 6:10

For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth. 7 And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed: 8 And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights: 9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground. 10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.

Babylon = (babel baw-bel’)H1101 confusion also the empire of (bala baw-lal’)H01101 = mix, fodder confound mingle fade

Fallen = (naphal naw-fal’)H5307 cast down, cease, ready to fall

Revelation 18

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Babylon = (Babulon bab-oo-lone’)G897 The capital of Chaldea, or figuratively as a type of tyrannyG894 also root Hebrew H1101 confusion.

Fallen = (pipto pip’-to)G4098 to fall (petomai pet’-om-ahee)G4072 to fly

What confusion has fallen? That there are any other gods but God almighty the creator of the heavens and the earth, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Who is and was and shall be the last.

The worshiping of any other god is error.

I believe those who have strongly and sincerely worshiped other gods now know they have been deceived and many have willfully aligned themselves in with the enemy, but many can, and I hope will repent if they choose to. The fear of God is the start of wisdom. Please consider learning the gospel Jesus of Nazareth,  Yeshua Ha Mashiach

Ezekiel 3 18:19

When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

About 4 years ago around November 2009, I perceived that some kind of (veil is falling)

Perhaps some members of the false religions have now joined forces with the those who have openly worshiped and served the enemy to increase persecutions of the children of God. Since I have been urged “to go to the lost sheep of Israel” remembering Gamaliel, who in Acts 5:34 said to to leave Paul and Peter alone, true mosaic Jews can still be saved if they turn to Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus of Nazareth and Repent.

Jeremiah 31:31Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah

Confusion has fallen, Now Repent before Judgment comes!

All people who have not joined forces with the evil one can be saved if they Repent. However all will bow down to the one True God and his only begotten son. Hallelujah!

Remember:

The nature of God is to forgive those who fear him., read Psalm 107 for yourself. Almost every sin imaginable is mentioned and forgiven. King David not only was an adulterer but he caused the brave and loyal husband be in harm’s way. Even he was forgiven. Remember this is before the LORD sent his son Jesus to be a sacrifice for us and make grace more obtainable.

Remember the Blessings in Matthew 5, John 20, Luke 7 and Revelation:

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.”

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake”

John 20:29 “Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed

Luke 7:23 “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me

Rev 22:14 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you

Remember: Once you repent and learn to forgive read the Book of Revelation. It’s the only book in the bible that explicitly promises blessings if you read or hear it and keep its sayings.

Remember: Who your Father is and the power of Jesus.

Luke 10 18-20 “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents andscorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Bear Fruit

Luke 3 8:11
Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then? 11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.”

Take Heed and Beware:

Let the Holy Spirt lead you. Read the bible yourself. Ignore the Fruit Inspectors for Jesus that may surround you like Job friends did. They may have good intentions or they may part of “insurrection of the wicked” sent to sabotage you. Does that sound unbelievable? Well it’s not to God, his prophets and his only begotten son Jesus.

Psalm 64
Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy. 2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: 3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words: 4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. 5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them? 6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep. 7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded. 8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away. 9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing. 10 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.”

Jeremiah 9:4-6
Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. 5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. 6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the Lord.”

Mathew 10 16-17
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;”.

Jeremiah 23:1 “Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord. 3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. 4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.” ***Click for Overcoming Part 4***

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law

Accept Jesus of Nazareth as the only begotten son of God and your Savior

John 14:16
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me

Forgive

But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Ask to be Forgiven
Matthew 6:9-13
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.***Overcoming Part 3***

Overcoming: Knowing The Truth 

GenesisKey.Org was Created On:16-Feb-2007 15:13:34 UTC

As a Christian we’re all tasked by Jesus to overcome. Not just our own sins but the sins of others that cause so many of the stresses of this world. The only way to do this is by faith. Remember in Mark 9, the report of a man’s son with a dumb spirit that the disciples couldn’t cast out? It made him foam at the mouth and tossed him many times into fires or into waters to destroy him.

Jesus scolded the disciples calling them“a faithless generation”, then said bring him over I’ll take care of it.

You can imagine the chaotic scene. The kids probabling acting up, the Great Physician is diagnosing the situation asking Dad, “How long has he been this way?” Then instructs “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to to him that believeth” Instantly, with faith and tears years of suffering are over.

Who do you identity with in this 2000 year old news report? Have you considered the story is about you, and you just might be the son. How many times has your mouth foamed with less then kind words? How many times have you found yourself tossed in the fire or into deep waters without knowing how you got there?

Looking at the New Testament many miracles involved casting out demons. The fact is the “Adversary of your soul” is real. Don’t dwell on it but realize the conditions of sinful behavior, both yours and others, are being influenced by a real and dangerous outside force.

So don’t be tricked and put all of the blame on others or yourself. “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” 1 Peter 5:8 NIV

Pray for mercy and forgiveness, and that it be the will of God that the Holy Spirit dwell in you. Then bless your enemies. Ask God if he will let you see them and feel about them they way he does.

Remember who your Father really is:

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them..
