Trump – God’s Choice? April 2011 Prophecy…

What do you think? Is this of God?

Against all odds, Donald Trump is the 2016 President-Elect.

Having to overcome:

– Foreign Multi-Nationals, George Soros – Billion Dollar Clinton Cash Slush Fund
– The bought and paid for mainstream media
– His own comments
– The Pope
– Countless accusations from people in his past
– The Republican Party turning their backs on him
– The Democratic Party out to bring him down at all costs
– Voter fraud

The list goes on. My thoughts, the only way he’s in the position he is, is due to the fact God has responded to the prayers of the saints and granted mercy on the USA. Pure and simple.

Now the task is to double up on prayer from now until the January 20th Inauguration.

Pray for this man’s life and that the wisdom of God be upon. In Y’shua’s name.

Zephaniah

Interesting week.  I listened to and read Zephaniah over the last 5-7 days.  Then began exploring other scripture with a similar theme, message, perspective.  It was fascinating what the Lord was saying to the people of the day.  What really made me take note was how the person sitting next to me in the prayer room, was ALSO reading Zephaniah.  This obscure tiny 3 chapter book.  I was nothing short of flabbergasted.  What are the crazy odds of anybody in the room reading Zephaniah, much less sitting next to me?  I mean even though it’s a room filled with Bible readers, the odds of being in these 3 chapters, to me is outrageous!  I had to ask the gentleman what the Lord was speaking to him about, so I did my best to patiently wait until he was finished, but I had to interrupt him as he was getting towards the end – just in case he had to hurry off somewhere.  Fortunately, he was agreeable and we talked about this obscure tiny book.  I shared my experience in going through it myself recently.  He too kind of stumbled upon it as his story goes.  I greatly appreciated hearing his perspective on it as there were some definite similarities as to what he was getting and what I was getting.

I thought I would paste the entire book in my blog since it’s so tiny and highlight the things that stood out.  It’ll be interesting to see what transpires in the coming days… or doesn’t.  It seems there’s no lack for things to pray about these days.  Reading this book and making comparisons to the current world reality, provokes one to PRAY more than ever.

ZEPHANIAH

1 The word of the LORD which came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah. 2 “I will utterly consume everything From the face of the land,” Says the LORD; 3 “I will consume man and beast; I will consume the birds of the heavens, The fish of the sea, And the stumbling blocks along with the wicked. I will cut off man from the face of the land,” Says the LORD. 4 “I will stretch out My hand against Judah, And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, The names of the idolatrous priests with the [pagan] priests— 5 Those who worship the host of heaven on the housetops; Those who worship and swear [oaths] by the LORD, But who [also] swear by Milcom; 6 Those who have turned back from [following] the LORD, And have not sought the LORD, nor inquired of Him.” 7 Be silent in the presence of the Lord GOD; For the day of the LORD [is] at hand, For the LORD has prepared a sacrifice; He has invited His guests. 8 “And it shall be, In the day of the LORD’s sacrifice, That I will punish the princes and the king’s children, And all such as are clothed with foreign apparel. 9 In the same day I will punish All those who leap over the threshold, Who fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit. 10 “And there shall be on that day,” says the LORD, “The sound of a mournful cry from the Fish Gate, A wailing from the Second Quarter, And a loud crashing from the hills. 11 Wail, you inhabitants of Maktesh! For all the merchant people (businessmen: also in Revelation – comment added) are cut down; All those who handle money (bankers: money changers in Jesus’ day – comment added) are cut off. 12 “And it shall come to pass at that time [That] I will search Jerusalem with lamps, And punish the men Who are settled in complacency, Who say in their heart, ‘The LORD will not do good, Nor will He do evil.’ 13 Therefore their goods shall become booty, And their houses a desolation; They shall build houses, but not inhabit [them]; They shall plant vineyards, but not drink their wine.” 14 The great day of the LORD [is] near; [It is] near and hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the LORD is bitter; There the mighty men shall cry out. 15 That day [is] a day of wrath, A day of trouble and distress, A day of devastation and desolation, A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, 16 A day of trumpet and alarm Against the fortified cities And against the high towers. 17 “I will bring distress upon men, And they shall walk like blind men, Because they have sinned against the LORD; Their blood shall be poured out like dust, And their flesh like refuse.” 18 Neither their silver nor their gold Shall be able to deliver them In the day of the LORD’s wrath; But the whole land shall be devoured By the fire of His jealousy, For He will make speedy riddance Of all those who dwell in the land. – Zephaniah 1:1-18 NKJV

1 Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, O undesirable nation, 2 Before the decree is issued, [Or] the day passes like chaff, Before the LORD’s fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the LORD’s anger comes upon you! 3 Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the LORD’s anger. 4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, And Ashkelon desolate; They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday, And Ekron shall be uprooted. 5 Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast, The nation of the Cherethites! The word of the LORD [is] against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines: “I will destroy you; So there shall be no inhabitant.” 6 The seacoast shall be pastures, With shelters for shepherds and folds for flocks. 7 The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; They shall feed [their] flocks there; In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening. For the LORD their God will intervene for them, And return their captives. 8 “I have heard the reproach of Moab, And the insults of the people of Ammon, With which they have reproached My people, And made arrogant threats against their borders. 9 Therefore, as I live,” Says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, “Surely Moab shall be like Sodom, And the people of Ammon like Gomorrah–Overrun with weeds and saltpits, And a perpetual desolation. The residue of My people shall plunder them, And the remnant of My people shall possess them.” 10 This they shall have for their pride, Because they have reproached and made arrogant threats Against the people of the LORD of hosts. 11 The LORD [will be] awesome to them, For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth; [People] shall worship Him, Each one from his place, Indeed all the shores of the nations. 12 “You Ethiopians also, You shall be slain by My sword.” 13 And He will stretch out His hand against the north, Destroy Assyria, And make Nineveh a desolation, As dry as the wilderness. 14 The herds shall lie down in her midst, Every beast of the nation. Both the pelican and the bittern Shall lodge on the capitals [of] her [pillars]; Their voice shall sing in the windows; Desolation [shall be] at the threshold; For He will lay bare the cedar work. 15 This is the rejoicing city That dwelt securely, That said in her heart, “I [am it], and [there is] none besides me.” How has she become a desolation, A place for beasts to lie down! Everyone who passes by her Shall hiss and shake his fist. – Zephaniah 2:1-15 NKJV

1 Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted, To the oppressing city! 2 She has not obeyed [His] voice, She has not received correction; She has not trusted in the LORD, She has not drawn near to her God. 3 Her princes in her midst [are] roaring lions; Her judges [are] evening wolves That leave not a bone till morning. 4 Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; Her priests have polluted the sanctuary, They have done violence to the law. 5 The LORD [is] righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, But the unjust knows no shame. 6 “I have cut off nations, Their fortresses are devastated; I have made their streets desolate, With none passing by. Their cities are destroyed; [There is] no one, no inhabitant. 7 I said, ‘Surely you will fear Me, You will receive instruction’–So that her dwelling would not be cut off, [Despite] everything for which I punished her. But they rose early and corrupted all their deeds. 8 “Therefore wait for Me,” says the LORD, “Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination [is] to gather the nations To My assembly of kingdoms, To pour on them My indignation, All My fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy. 9 “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, That they all may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him with one accord. 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers, The daughter of My dispersed ones, Shall bring My offering. 11 In that day you shall not be shamed for any of your deeds In which you transgress against Me; For then I will take away from your midst Those who rejoice in your pride, And you shall no longer be haughty In My holy mountain. 12 I will leave in your midst A meek and humble people, And they shall trust in the name of the LORD. 13 The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness And speak no lies, Nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; For they shall feed [their] flocks and lie down, And no one shall make [them] afraid.” 14 Sing, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all [your] heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! 15 The LORD has taken away your judgments, He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the LORD, [is] in your midst; You shall see disaster no more. 16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Do not fear; Zion, let not your hands be weak. 17 The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet [you] with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. 18 “I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, Who are among you, [To whom] its reproach [is] a burden. 19 Behold, at that time I will deal with all who afflict you; I will save the lame, And gather those who were driven out; I will appoint them for praise and fame In every land where they were put to shame. 20 At that time I will bring you back, Even at the time I gather you; For I will give you fame and praise Among all the peoples of the earth, When I return your captives before your eyes,” Says the LORD. – Zephaniah 3:1-20 NKJV

Gideon Bible…

I recently found myself in need of another Bible.  Tonight, I went to the store to look for a Bible.  I generally appreciate the smaller easy to carry Bibles.  I asked the clerk if they carry Bibles and if so, where are they located?  They pointed me in the direction of the books available.  As I walking towards the book section a thought went into my head.  I really would like a little pocket Gideon Bible.  Those are so nice and so compact.  I thought too bad the Gideon’s don’t sell their little pocket Bibles.  Where can I get one from them anyway?

I found my way over to the book section.  They did in fact carry Bibles.  I looked at all the options and I was unsatisfied.  They didn’t have any new NKJV Bibles in small format similar to the one I had previously.  Bummer.  I guess I won’t be purchasing another Bible today.

Then my eyes found their way to the shelf with no Bibles, simply other books available.  Blending in with all the big books was this little pocket Gideon Bible.  I thought, no way!  They don’t sell this book here.  Someone must have put the Bible there for someone to pick up and keep.  The store didn’t have a price or any information as to how much it cost.

I brought the Bible to the counter and told them my story.  I communicated that this company doesn’t sell the Bible but gives it away.  I explained that I believe somebody simply placed it on the shelf for someone to take.  The clerks both concluded that it wasn’t their stores item and GAVE me the Bible!  WOW!  How cool is that?!  I had the very thoughts about what was going to happen, just moments before they actually manifested according to my hearts desire.  Jesus is the coolest!  Thank You Holy Spirit. Father You give good gifts!  Prophetic Word  Very cool…

Life in the Kingdom is blessed.  If you doubt the truth or validity of Jesus Christ and His words, please do your best to prove Him wrong.  It’ll be the best thing you ever do.  Promise 🙂

Verse of the day – 22 Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. [Genesis 2:22 NKJV] – The real Valentines day.

2015 Yes

2015.

Say. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

I never want to say, No to God, only yes.

It’s time dream with God again.  It’s time to run with God again.  It’s time to believe all things are possible, not simply know all things are possible.  Truly believe all things are possible.

What we’re looking for is not what we think we’re looking for.  It looks much different than our pre-conceived notions.  This love is such foreign concept to our current paradigm.  We’re only beginning to barely scrape the surface as to what this love looks like.  What our culture believes love is ain’t even in the same universe as to His love.

Moving past knowledge into the practice of love, is what’s up. Getting beyond the flesh and into the spirit.  It’s work.  It’s the work Jesus did.  Can we even comprehend the level of work Jesus did for humanity, making it look effortlessly?  He (the King of Glory) left EVERYTHING, to become dust and moisture.  He left perfection, comfort, harmony, unity and exaltation for dust and moisture, to be surrounded by the sin sest pool earth had become.  He put up with a faithless generation, in His words.

Humility is having everything and leaving everything for what seems like nothing.  Yet, He loved humanity so much He left all of this for us.  What He calls the apple of His eye (those who believe in Him as LORD and Savior).  He is after the wealth of souls.  While men mistreat and lord it over another, He came to bring freedom.  He came to bind up the broken hearted.  He came to make the poor rich.  He came to undo the systems.  He came to disorganize religion (tear down this temple and I’ll raise it up in 3 days). He came to break up the spirit of death upon mankind.   He came to re-establish intimate relationship.  He’s flawlessly smooth, handling everyone perfectly according to what’s on the inside.

He knew the mission.  He knew the plan.  He knew who He was destined to become.

2015, we will begin to recognize His character, walk in His integrity and understand who we are and what we’re called to.  The future looks so much different than anything the world has ever seen to this point.  It’s good to know history.  It’s even better to know and understand the future before it unfolds.

Can you see the change?  Can you see the change in you?  Do you know the change you’ll encounter this year?  Get ready.  It’s time to go new places…

The past will only help you from the stand point as to where you won’t be going.  The days of Gumby are at hand.  Stretch it out 2015.  Word to your brother!

Conversation on Faith

noahs-ark

Faith.

Some things I’ve learned about the idea of “faith” lately.

Noah had radical faith to build an ark. Think about it, it NEVER rained before. A boat has never been needed before that I can tell based on Scripture. Nobody else on the planet got it. Noah was mocked and ridiculed by EVERYONE. The ark wasn’t built in a day but rather took decades to complete.

Faith is stupid. Yes, faith is stupid and foolish to the mind. Faith is an offense to the intellect. It makes no logical sense.

Skepticism, doubt and unbelief are all a part of the intellect. These are faith-less thoughts and attitudes. God’s shown me recently that I’ve had little faith. We reside far too often in the confines of the intellect, on the shores of skepticism, doubt and unbelief. The time has come to end such thinking and get into – crazy radical faith.

Repentance is beautiful. Faith is rising and the foolishness of God is becoming more and more my portion. My habitation. Thank you Jesus.

Hebrews 11 and Romans 4 are such wonderful passages describing and identifying what real true faith is demonstrated as.

The Holy Spirit is so kind. Holy Spirit is such a gracious and merciful communicator.

Let’s walk on water. Eye’s on Jesus.

Shift.

lamb

There’s a micro and macro shift taking place right now. Everything we as individuals knew and know is changing. There’s nothing that can be done about it. Our paths will and are changing regardless of our agreement, desire for it even. Yet some will desire it and embrace it. Parts of me embrace it and parts of me fights it. God is good, trust that reality. After 7 years in Arizona wilderness, desert experience it seems my time has come to leave for green pastures.

I cannot begin to describe how radical of a transition into destiny this life is moving into at the moment. Dreams, desires, hopes and the purposes for which I’m created are yet again unraveling before my very eyes. What can I do about it? Worship the One who is worthy. I worship You Jesus Christ of Nazareth! Only You can do such miraculous things. Only You can open and shut doors. Only You have the keys. You are worthy! You are worthy! You are worthy! You are worthy!

Traveling from London to Plymouth via train I got to see the country side of England. It’s GREEN! All along the way were sheep grazing in green pastures. Personally I love to see sheep, let alone sheep in green pastures!!!! Wooooohooooo! As I put my earplugs in and listened to “Hillsong United – Relentless” I began to meditate on God’s love. Seeing for the first time a new how much God’s hand is upon my life. I’ve been blinded to that reality for a bit. Reflecting on the years gone by, I had such a sense of gratitude. My life in Christ Jesus is back flipping amazing! Thinking back to a visitation with Jesus in 2003, where He told me, “You’re in My business now.” It has not been boring! It’s been an adventure. The places I’ve been, the emotions, challenges, hurdles, it’s all worth it. He’s so good. Tears streamed down my face in the box car. I couldn’t hold them back. Without concern to what people might think profound worship took place in my heart, without spoken words, or outward exuberance. I encountered YHWH. He encountered me. He is with me. Priceless.

At dinner I realized the opportunity, challenge and possibilities for the future moving forward. The vision is massive, the opportunity endless and Jesus being glorified on a global scale. May it be.

world

God’s doing a work in all of our hearts. Even if we don’t see it He is moving us, molding us, sculpting our hearts a fresh. We can move with Him or resist, either way – we will get molded and sculpted. Agreement with Him is easier for us, not for Him. He will mold us without any additional effort regardless. Say Yes, to what Jesus has for you a new in this coming year. He loves you. No stiff neckedness. In Jesus name.

Awaken!

awakenmysoul

Awaken me LORD. Awaken my heart to live fully for You.

Let FIRE BURN a new this night without hesitation.

Awaken Oh my soul to the glory of Y’shua.

Awaken me Father. Awaken me to LIFE.

I’ve been sleeping and dull for too long. Let the activation begin.

Let the LIFE of YHWH commence.

I need Your resurrection. Father pour out Your Spirit on this flesh that overcoming LIFE can get under way.

In Y’shua’s name.
—————————-

I can’t help but think that there’s something more to fight for. There’s much more to fight for. I’ve not begun to fight. COMFORT – COMFORT gets in the way. COMFORT breeds COMPLACENCY.

There’s a fight on the horizon, I’m beginning to see so clearly. In this hibernation of life there’s a restoring and repairing for something significant. Something to lay it all on the line for. Do you know what I mean? Do you sense it?

The fight? The fight is for humanity. For the lost souls of the Kingdom. The lost souls that must be found. We must stop our own induced comfort and self expression for the fight of love for others. Rather than using others for our own gain, comfort and satisfaction; we MUST sacrifice the independence of self indulgence for the sacrifice of life for Kingdom of God.

“To live is Christ and to die is gain …” Let’s begin to believe. There’s more to the Kingdom than what we’ve begun to fathom. Let your heart awaken to the reality of the greatest cause and greatest name – King Y’shua.

The greatest gift is to be stripped of everything to where nothing matters except the cause in your heart where there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain. REVOLUTION! FIGHT! Pledge allegiance to KING JESUS!

AWAKEN!!!!!!!

Living the Moment …

9.10.12 – 11:56am

Much of the time has been getting to know the other volunteers, worship, prayer, chores, meetings and meals.  Spending time with the others has been so refreshing.  Meeting with the Saints from around the globe is such a privilege.  You get such a tremendous sense of passionate hearts for the same King.  The unity and family feel to it all is so special.

PRACTICE – LIVING IN THE MOMENT

It seems that the Lord is working “LIVING IN THE MOMENT” into my reality.  Whatever is in front of me the challenge is to surrender fully to it.  Whether it’s worship time, prayer, working or community time, I find the Holy Spirit drawing my attention to what’s before me.  Focusing directly on what is at hand, doing it with a glad, happy heart.  Distractions and disconnectedness seem to be falling off more and more.  Single focused attention is growing, with no mind for outside distraction.  I’m not where I would like to be or where the vision for the attention is suppose to be.  However, it is nice to feel and sense that in the moment I’m giving more of myself to it.  An intentional push towards what is now – letting go of the future and past.  The moment is where LIFE is taking place.  I want to live where LIFE is taking place, leaving the unknown possibilities, fantacies and distraction with lion who comes to steal, kill and destroy.  I want NO tolerance for those elements in this life.

Living the Moment – is freedom.

Living the Moment – is life giving.

Living the Moment – is shalom.

Living the Moment – removes anxiety.

Living the Moment – is victory.

Living the Moment – is gratitude.

Living the Moment – is giving.

Living the Moment – is love.

Living the Moment – is reality.

Living the Moment – locks Satan out (in certain ways).

Living the Moment – is productive.

Living the Moment – is rest.

Living the Moment – is of God.

What is taking place in me?  Why am I talking like this or writing like this?

God is doing a deeper work in me.  Somehow giving over all of me to worship, praise and prayer is granting the Holy Spirit tremendous access to the doors of my heart that have been closed for too long.  He’s brought me to a place where I’m positioned to give Y’shua (Jesus Christ)  all my worship, all my heart, all my strength, all my mind.  The more I abandon myself to the things of God the greater the fruit being released from this life.  I can’t explain it in a way that I would want to so I will refrain in attempting to give examples of what I’m seeing Him do from within me.  What I can say is good doors of my heart are opening and the release of Heaven is flowing out deep from within.

The presence of the Holy Spirit is over-shadowing this flesh in a greater and greater propensity.  Praise the Lord!  There are moments I find myself watching the Holy Spirit working in me and in the people around me.  It’s a front row seat to what he is doing in relationship to those I interact with and have exchange with.

The reality of “The Holy of Holies” is happening.  As He leads me to walk away from the world, to be unspotted by the things of the world as James talks about, I sense life looking more like what Heaven will look like to the individual.  Small glimpses mind you but glimpses none the less.  It seems I’ve come so far from the days of elementary school where prayer and worship seemed so so so so so boring.  The direction He’s envisioning me with is to live in Heaven’s reality hopefully constantly to release it here on earth.  To be a living, breathing, walking, talking – ark of the covenant.

To come to such a place I must remove and cut out that which compromises “holiness”.  This is no easy task due to the fact Satan is continually bombarding us with temptation, distraction and coming to steal.

Made it to the Mount of Olives!

I made it!  After traveling about 8000 miles I’ve arrived to the Jerusalem House of Prayer. People from around the globe are volunteering for this prayer gathering.  Immediately they took me in, fed me and showed me to my sleeping accommodations.

I’ve such a growing love and appreciation for the beauty of the Bride of Christ.  Total strangers embracing me and caring for me as family.  Wow.  Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.

It’s a little aver 9pm and I’m going to go get some rest after what seems like a sleepless 24-36 hours or so.  I even got a chance to call my Mom and Dad with my WIFI phone service!  It sounded like I was talking with them as if they were right down the street. Another modern day miracle perhaps? 🙂

The only challenge at this point seems to be the fact that the power outlets are not compatible with our USA plugs.  So this could be my last update in some time if I don’t get access to electricity soon.  Pray that an adapter appears and I will be able to further communicate and share pictures, etc.

Israel is so similar to the southern California climate it’s amazing!  Hills, temperatures, colors, plant life etc.  It’s a nice reprieve from the Arizona 105-110 temperatures.

Time for sleep.  Blessings from Israel! 🙂
