BunSo God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

We are all made in the image and likeness of God…. period.  The moment we move away from this fact we create the problems that face us in today’s world.

It is God who made us and in His sight we are all equal.  It doesn’t matter what the color of our skin is, or if we’re tall, or short, fat, or skinny, or blue.  It doesn’t matter.  When we look at another person, no matter what he or she looks like, we must remind ourselves that that person is made in the image and likeness of God.  If we practice this how can we have a racist bone in our bodies?  If we embrace this, how can we fall into the trap of thinking one race is superior to another?  If we set the word of God in our hearts and it allow it direct us, we will only love all we come in contact with, no matter what they look like.

We live in a broken world and last weeks shooting in Charleston was tragic.  Please keep the church and those who lost loved ones in your prayers.  One nut-case, high on drugs, given to him legally, through the Big-Pharma system, acted out of hate and I believe demonic whisperings.  There’s no other explanation.  He didn’t come into this world with this hate, he was taught it.  It was nurtured in his mind and then leached into his soul and finally he acted on it.  He sought out others who hated as well and in some way this boys’ mentors are responsible for the killings too.

Darwinism doesn’t teach equality, it expounds survival of the fittest.  In fact Hitler used Darwinism to proclaim that the Jews were of an inferior race and this eventually led to the Holocaust. (see Ben Steins movie Expelled, No Intelligence Allowed.)  What happened in the USA in regard to the slavery issue, as well as the genocide of the Native American, all stemmed from straying from this divine proclamation that all men are created in the image and likeness of God.

In last Sunday’s Bun, I discussed the question regarding how much technology would make it into the Millennial reign, when the King returns.  I would venture to say here, that there will no place for bigotry or racial hate, when the King is ruling for 1000 years.  Remember that there are billions of people here when He returns with the armies of heaven.  How will he rule?  Do we really think there is going to be secret Ku Kulx Klan meetings?  Will there be room for groups like the New Black Panthers?  Will antisemitism exist when the King himself is the Lion from the tribe of Judah?  I don’t think so.

In closing todays Bun.  The creation groans to be set free and we do as well, as we await the return of the King.  In the meantime we should look at everyone we meet, as made in the image and likeness of our creator, the one true God, Yeshua, Jesus.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  

Happy Fathers Day on the Summer Solstice – The longest day of the Year!  

House Cleaning!  NOTE!  We are waiting for the books—On the Path of the Immortals—to arrive from Tom Horn’s warehouse and there has been a delay!  Please be patient as we’re doing everything we can to ship them out as soon as we get them!  L. A. 

Noah Hutchings went home to the Lord….

Dear Friends,
Some of you already know, but I wanted to make sure each of you had this information:
Noah Hutchings went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, June 17, at 3:45 p.m.  He died of kidney failure and pneumonia.  This great warrior for God lived 92 fruitful years, and worked at SWRC for 64 years, producing over 100 books, thousands of radio broadcasts and leading over 50 trips to the Holy Land, until he was deposed about three months ago.
The funeral service will be Wednesday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Bethany, 3800 N. Mueller, Bethany, Oklahoma.  He will be buried in Rose Hill Burial Park, 6001 N.W. Grand Blvd.
I appreciate the prayers and loyal friendship each of you have rendered toward Carol and I during this painful, yet peaceful season of life.
David Schnittger

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Matthew 24:42

And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. Mark 13:37

The above words are from the synoptic Gospels found in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.  Here we see Yeshua/Jesus admonishing us to watch for the signs that will bring about the end of the age.  The wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and troublesome time. 

With that in mind I wonder how many people on this planet are watching?  Gary Stearman sign off the new Prophecy Watchers TV show by saying: Keep watching everybody!

There are around 7 billion of people on the planet and out of that 1.8 billion are Christians.  Out of the 1.8 Billion people, I wonder how many folks know about the prophecies found in their Bibles?  How many pastors teach these prophecies which are a command from the King himself, warning us, admonishing us to watch and be ready!

Last year I was at a conference and the key-note speaker was telling everyone the church had to take control of the 7 mountains of culture, banking, education, entertainment, family, government, media and religion.  I do agree that as Christians we should strive to  be the best we can be in whatever mountain we find ourselves put in.  However, there are some who are saying that before the King returns we must take dominion over all the mountains!  Here’s where I disagree.

We are told by Yeshua/Jesus what the days will be like before He returns.  We are admonished by Him to watch and be ready.  Does the church, at large, heed these warnings, or are they to  busy with programs and business to realize we might be in the window of time that directly relates to the prophetic words of the King.

When we look at what is happening on our planet, and we can do so because of the advance in communications, we see all of the warnings by Yeshua/Jesus manifesting everywhere.   The wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and troublesome time. 

How many Christians don’t want to hear about the above warnings?  How many people are watching for the son of man’s return?  How many of us are ignoring these words at our own peril?

Added to this is the hint from Yeshua/Jesus that: It will be like the days of Noah when the son of man returns!

In closing todays Bun.  Where is the promise of His coming?  He is long-suffering, and patient.  He is also aware of the time and will not be late.  I would posit that we are in the window of time where the Lord’s return must be soon, as with all the genetic tampering going on, if He doesn’t return soon, there might not be a human being left!

The Days of Noah were perhaps the most troubling of times on the planet.  It was when the Fallen Angelic host of heaven came to earth and had sex with the daughters of men creating the hybrid Nephilim—the Fallen Ones.  Is this happening today?  The short answer for me—based on years of research—is yes it is.  However, it is a bizarre, twisted path that a person will follow to see what the dark side is cooking up in hell’s kitchen, as Russ Dizdar likes to call it.

I believe the signs are here.  We are at the end of the age and I for one grow weary of the perversion and wickedness that I find myself surrounded by.  Our hope is in His return, as when he does come back, everything changes.  The system that has enslaved this world, as well as the evil Prince of this world, Satan, will be done away with.  It is our only hope….

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.17The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2: 16

We are strangers in a strange land.  As beautiful as this planet is, it’s not our home.  However, while we are here and in these bodies, which are in a fallen state—don’t believe me…. watch the 6 o’clock news—we are pulled in a lot of directions.  This is why Paul admonishes us to take every thought captive.

Falling in line with this exhortation from Paul, John exhorts us to watch and be on our guard, for three things, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life.  I want to touch on all three of these aspects of what we deal with as human beings.

the lust of the flesh:  First off the flesh always wants to lift itself up.  It always wants to be “me” first.  A great example of this is watching a three-year old,  it’s all about them!  However, some people never grow out of that phase and spend the rest of their lives wanting more and more and more.  They are never satisfied.  As my first pastor told me once; how much is enough…. just a little more.  The flesh can never be appeased and is at war with us.  As Paul states: In my flesh is no good thing.  He knows of what he speaks, as the works of the flesh are contrary to the works of the Spirit of the Living God.

lust of the eyes: This works in tandem with the lust of the flesh.  What we see we want.  We covet, we desire, we look with envy or lust, we become jealous and on and on it goes.  This is why when these thoughts happen, and if we are honest they do, we put them at the feet of the cross.  We die to them daily, as they go nowhere and will eventually burden us down.  How many of us rejoice when someone we know get’s a new house or car or promotion?  See what I mean?  I’ve seen people’s eyes—which are the window to their souls—flash with envy while their mouths congratulated me.  This is who we are.

the boastful pride of life: I made this!  This is mine!  I am a success!  I accomplished this! LOOK AT ME!  It’s easy for us to get puffed up with the pride of life and believe we are responsible for our success.  Yes, we work hard and apply our minds and bodies to whatever it is we are working on, but true success comes from our Father.  It is He who blesses.  It is He who allows us to prosper.  It’s very dangerous for anyone to look around at what he or she has and believe they are responsible for it.  This is why the 24 elders cast their crowns at the One seated on the throne in the Book of Revelation.  They know who it is who created them and allowed them to prosper in the way!

In closing todays bun.  All of us struggle with the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, but the good news is this.  If we are born from above the Spirit of the living God, His Spirit will: teach us in all things!  He will comfort us and instruct us.  He will reprove us when necessary and will lead us into His presence with singing.  We learn, as we walk out our salvation with fear and trembling, to overcome the flesh and walk in the Spirit.

Psalm 118 is packed with lots of good “stuff.” For example:

Psalm 118:14   The LORD [is] my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.

There’s a lot of comfort in knowing that He is our strength, especially in times of diversity, but this verse only applies to someone who knows who the LORD is. When a person becomes born from above, we are ushered into an entire different reality. Most of us before we come to this point rely totally on ourselves, as we take pride in being self-made and self-reliant.  However, when one becomes spirit filled, he or she is introduced to the reality of the spirit world. We learn that there is a “cosmic” war raging that has been continually prosecuted in the heavenlies, ever since the creation of man. We get glimpses of this war in Daniel, the Gospels, and of course the Book of Revelation. We also learn that the weapons against the enemy of our souls, are not carnal, in other words guns, spears, swords and your own fists won’t work against a supernatural entity!

There are some Christians who wonder where this battle takes place. Simply put, it takes place in the mind of the believer. When Satan entered Judas his point of entry was Judas’ thought life, i.e. the mind. So it is with us today. James tells us the way this works. I’ll paraphrase here, first we get a thought in our minds. Then, we entertain it. Finally we act on it, and if left unchecked can lead to both spiritual death, and in some cases, physical death as well. All of that to say this, that we need weapons in our arsenal to combat the thoughts that come into our minds. We need to check those thoughts against , The Bible or The Guide Book to the Supernatural, and what does not measure up to what it says, needs to be stopped at the door of our minds and forcefully ushered out. So how do we engage in this warfare? By knowing what the Guidebook says about certain situations. Once we know the Guidebook, and are trained in what it says, we can then arm ourselves with the weapons to counteract the fiery darts that the enemy will throw at us. Here’s an arrow, for our spiritual quiver that is found in Psalm 118. I have incorporated  this “arrow,” into my arsenal, because it is both a statement of faith and also a proclamation of victory. I would suggest that you commit this to memory so that you can use it when you are pressed in on all sides. The verse is this:

Psalm 118:17   I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the LORD. 

It’s almost to simple, isn’t it? But let’s take a moment and look at what it declares. First off, it is a proclamation of victory. In other words death is not an option I will entertain, but life will be the outcome, thus, I shall not die but live! No matter what is pressing in on us, uttering this in our minds, speaking it out loud, declares victory over the situation that may seem overwhelming.

The second part of the Psalm points to the future, that because we live, we will declare the works of the Lord! I have also learned to substitute a variety of verbs in place of declare, as it amplified the phrase. For example. Extol the works of the Lord. Sing about the works of the Lord. Remember the works of the Lord. Think on the works of the Lord. Walk in the works of the Lords. It can go on and on, if you let it! The point is this, that we repeat this phrase, this weapon, in spite of the circumstances that we are surrounded in. We state out loud and also repeat it over and over again in our minds, that we shall not die, but live!

The enemy wants to rob, kill and destroy us, so what else should we expect? Psalm 118, can arm us with a powerful tool to destroy the works of the devil, which is what every one of us are called to do while we are here on earth!

Thanks for your support of this ministry!

See you all tomorrow! L. A.

Be still and know that I AM God.

I was recently in a church where the “pastor” stood in front of the congregation and told everyone to begin to speak in tongues.  The entire place exploded in a cacophony of voices.  I turned to the Wifey, shook my head, and stated this was unbiblical.

There are those, especially in the Hyper-Pentecostal church, who will disagree with this.  However, when we look at the scripture in 1 Corinthians 14: 23 If therefore the whole church be assembled together and all speak with tongues, and there come in men unlearned or unbelieving, will they not say that ye are mad?

So there we have what the Bible says about everyone speaking in tongues together. We can tap dance around this and tell each other that this scripture didn’t apply to the corporate church, but I believe it’s very clear.  The gift of tongues, when manifest, must have an interpreter, period, and the congregation is not to speak in tongues all at once.

27 If any man speaketh in a tongue, let it be by two, or at the most three, and that in turn; and let one interpret:

28 but if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

Then there are those who insist that these gifts passed away in the first century, and won’t move in the gifts at all.  However, there is nothing that states the gifts have ever left the church…. For the most part they have either been dormant, or abused.

Back to the church service:  What was interesting to me was nothing happened after the outburst.  There was no move of God.  However, just before the outburst the congregation was sitting still, in silence, and was waiting on Him. We weren’t trying to manipulate anything, or storm the gates of heaven.  We were still before Him.  I spoke first, as the Spirit of the Living God gave me a short word: Praise God the giver of Life. 

Then, someone else added to it.  All in all, about 30 people participated and everyone’s words were an insight about our Father.  In other words what we experienced was a Bible study about the attributes of God.  It was wonderful, and the people moved in the gifts of the spirit.

The churches, for the  most part, have forgotten what it is like to sit before the Lord, to be still and know that He is God.

Most churches never practice this, so the folks never actually hear from the Lord in a service.  They are never trained corporately to be still.  When and if it happens, most are uncomfortable with it.  We’re so used to being entertained, to have something going on, a program, the morning announcements, the special offering song, the worship team playing the latest “hits.”  While all that is part of our services, we neglect the basics.  Most churches have less than 30 seconds of prayer each week.  Most churches never are still before the Lord, and certainly won’t allow any “outburst” from the congregants.

With all of this said, I would state that we live in a time where we have a form of religion but deny it’s power, Just like Jeshua/Jesus warned us would be the case in the last days.  The power comes from when the spirit of the living God, shows up.  You and I have nothing of ourselves.  We can’t manufacture the presence of God.  There’s no magic formula. There’s no set way to bring it in except to be still.  In other words by emptying ourselves of our agenda and being still before the living God, we are then allowing His Spirit to move, to teach, to admonish, to warn, to utter prophecy, to have a word of healing.

This is what happened in the first century church and we read about it all through the Book oF Acts!  The people waited on the Living God and lives were changed and transformed.  Oh that our churches would abandon their seeker-friendly programs and their rigid structures, and Be still and know that He is God.

23This is the LORD’S doing; It is marvelous in our eyes. 24This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. 25O LORD, do save, we beseech You; O LORD, we beseech You, do send prosperity!… Psalm 118

Every morning, the moment in which I find myself awake, I say the above words of the psalmist, to myself.  I start the day by giving the Most High God the recognition he is due.   This psalm is a proclamation, a statement of faith.

This is the day the Lord has made:  We give the creator, Yashua/Jesus, the credit for the day, the creation.  In other words as John tells us:  Through Him all things were made and without nothing that was made was made.  

We’re not giving the credit to Darwinism, or the theory of evolution, but the creator of the universe, The Living God, who spoke everything we see into existence, from the galaxies spinning around in a cosmic dance above us, to the ant crawling on my kitchen counter scrounging for food.

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.  This next sentence is an admonition for us to rejoice in the fact that we are alive and “vertical,” and filled with the promise of another 24 hour period in which anything is possible!  We are told to be glad.  How many of us awaken to find ourselves in sickness, in financial trouble, without a  job.  In spite of our circumstances and the trials we face, we are told to rejoice and be glad. We are told:  All things are possible with God….

When we take this promise as a fact and couple it with the admonition of rejoicing that we are alive on planet earth and have another day to walk about in His creation, this should kindle our faith.  It should lift our hearts and minds and give us peace that He is in control and will work on our behalf.    

O LORD, do save: What do we ned to be saved from?  Our habitual sin?  Bitterness, anger, malice, lust, covetousness?  The list is almost endless.  When we cry out to Him who is greater than anything we face, He is faithful to save.  It might not be in the way in which we imagined, but when we look back we can see His hand was guiding us and in fact, His footsteps were next to ours as we walk through life.

Send Prosperity: This is not a name it and claim it statement where we proclaim we will get a new house or a new car, but rather:  And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8: 28  Father will prosper us in the way.  Think about how many areas of our lives this includes.  Our marriage, our relation with our children, our business, our ministry, our golf game!  LOL!  He will work everything to our good, if we trust Him.

In closing todays Bun.  Life can be hard.  It can be filled with trials.  However, there is a time when we enter into His rest.  With that in mind, let us rejoice that we have another day in which to see our Father work in our lives through Jesus, and the power of his mighty spirit.

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.  Zechariah 12:3

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.  Zechariah 12:9

Israel Timeline

 

 

Why the global attention on Israel and why is it happening now?  Isn’t it interesting how Antisemitism is on the rise?  Isn’t it amazing how even portions of the church are proclaiming that the Jews that are in the Holy land are not the real Jews.

Obama wants Israel to  go back to the 1967 borders which would be national suicide.  The Palestinians call out for a homeland but a case can be made that Jordan is that homeland and as Joseph Farrah of WND puts it:  There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1 percent of the landmass.

Think about it.  Israel is the focus of international scrutiny.  The Iranians want her wiped off the map.  HAMAS and Hezbollah have vowed not even one grain of sand will they give to the nation of Israel.

There is a supernatural reason for what we see and it is because we are headed to The Time of Jacobs Trouble, in other words The Tribulation.  All the signs are here, the signs that Jesus warned us would precede His second coming; wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and troublesome times.

The present administration sent it’s lackey’s to Israel in an attempt to sway the election and not being pleased with the results, Obama now threatens to go before the United Nations in an attempt to once again divide the land.  (Keep your eye on the New Madrid fault-line if this happens)

Israel is now gathered back into her ancient homeland, just like Bible prophecy declared, centuries before.  The Most High God is about to deal with her.  She is now surrounded by nations that will coalesce into a confederacy and attack her, but she will be victorious.

In closing todays Bun:  The hatred of the Jewish people has a supernatural origin and it is this.  The Messiah came from the root of Jesse, He was a Jew and he destroyed the works of the Fallen One, on Calvary.  He opened the door for all the people of the world to be reconciled with the real God of the universe.  When we call upon his name, Yashua/Jesus and ask Him into our hearts, our sins are forgiven and we have eternal life.  This is the good-news!  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

What was written will come to pass.  What was foretold will unfold.
