Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what isyour life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.  James 4:14

 

“O Lord, make me know my end
and what is the measure of my days;
let me know how fleeting I am!
Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths,
and my lifetime is as nothing before you.
Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath!
Selah
Surely a man goes about as a shadow!
Surely for nothing they are in turmoil;
man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather.

Psalm 39: 4, 6

I was driving on the 405 Freeway near Westwood, in Los Angeles and there is a cemetery that is near the freeway. Thousands of people are buried there from the wars that our country has fought.  I would imagine that many of these people interred here have been forgotten. Who remembers their voices, their hopes and dreams, their struggles?

The point is this, as the scriptures above so succinctly point out, we are but a mist that appears and then vanishes away.

Yet we are told that He knows our every need. That He cares for us and  He will present us before his presence with singing and joy.  Knowing that our time here is short, what should we focus on? As Francis Schaeffer would posit; How then should we live?

I believe the answer to this question is what Yeshua/Jesus stated when He said: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself. Basically, love is the golden rule. The entire human experience  comes down to this one word, love.

A few weeks ago I wrote a Bun about the love chapter in 1st Corinthians, where Paul tells us, Faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is love.

We walk through this world knowing that we won’t take any of the things we amass with us.  All of our possessions will be given away to someone else after we depart from here. The one gift we can give to those around us, that is lasting, that can touch the depths of another’s soul, is love.

It is what we remember, what remains steadfast and unchanging, along with faith, it is the “currency” of the heavenly realm.

There will be earthquakes in diverse places…

Thanks Watchman Eric…

7.4 magnitude #earthquake just shook the coast of Ecuador, according to the @USGS. No #tsunami threat

Clearly we have a tuned up seismic issue and phase taking place. India, two in China, Guatemala, now this, all in a handful of days.

Most of us are familiar with this passage of scripture. The back story is this. Yeshua/Jesus has come out of the Temple in Jerusalem and some of his disciples are with him. They ask him point-blank, what will be the signs of the end of the age.  Jesus then gives them punch list of items that will be the signs of the end of the age.  Here’s the entire list:
 
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 
I’ve talked about the phrase, earthquakes in diverse places, many times, and the fact is that before modernity there was no way to track earthquakes in diverse places. In other words, how would someone living in the Galilee know of a 9.0 temblor happening in Japan 500 years ago? They wouldn’t. That being said, in the present day, my Iphone pings me when any earthquake larger than a 6.0 happens anywhere in the world.
Ring of FireSo in the last few days there has been an outbreak of earthquakes, all along the ring of fire, which is the area of the world from Alaska including our west coast, Mexico’s west coast and then South America’s west coast. It swings out to the island of Vanuatu, then to New Zealand, Australia and up to Japan.
So, is this business as usual or something more? Is this another sign of the times that herald the Return of The King, or just a another flurry of earthquakes that happen from time to time, so there’s nothing to be concerned about?
I wonder how many people on the planet are even aware of the prophecy above? What percentage of the 7 Billion people alive today know about this prophecy and are looking a the “punch list?” How many are looking at current events like this and thinking about the return of The King? How many long for a cosmic regime change from under the oppression of the beast system and its ruler, The Prince of this world, Satan, to the glorious appearing of The Rider on the White Horse, with the armies of heaven, who will bring about the greatest event in all of history, the Return of the King, Yeshua/Jesus and the setting up of the Millennial kingdom on earth, with Jerusalem as its capital!
There are now earthquakes in diverse places and I would put to you that they are happening with greater frequency and severity than ever before.
Are we in the last days?
Many of us believe so, as the world seems out of balance in so many ways.
In closing todays Bun.  When I travel and speak at conferences I have been asking the folks this question; How many of you think the world is a better place now than 15 years ago. I wait a few seconds scanning the crowd for a hand or two. There’s not one. In all the places I’ve been, not one hand goes up.
People know something is not right in the world. For those of us who watch the signs, the “punch-list” Jesus gave us that will herald His return, the signs seem to be very clear. Even so come Lord Jesus, come…. Maranatha!

The gates of hell shall not prevail! Matthew 16:18

The above scripture is incredible and I believe it is for both the body of Messiah and heralds the coming kingdom, as well as each of us individually. In other words the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church collectively and you and me individually. 

This is a profound promise stated by our Messiah—the One Who Was Sent to us, to free us from the bondage of sin and death—that we shall prevail!

It is a rallying cry to those of us who are oppressed, put down, and perhaps feel defeated by life.

While we look around at the chaotic world in which we live, with heinous acts like the Genocide being practiced against Christians throughout the Middle East and elsewhere, or the Satanic beheadings being carried out by the drug Cartels just over our southern border, it is easy to think that the Fallen One is gaining the upper hand.

In my opinion, we are living in a window of time unlike any other, as I believe we are in the last days. It is the time of The Fallen One, and I believe he is sending his dark agents out in the world to create some of the havoc we see manifesting now.

However, even though Satan will seat his man, the Antichrist, who will be the literal fulfillment of the Seed of the Serpent, in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, it is the last gasp of a kingdom that will soon perish from this earth, for at least 1000 years.

When Jesus uttered this statement, it was a declaration stated with certainty and finality. The gates of hell shall not prevail…. period!

In closing todays Bun:  In Romans 7, Paul tells us that he does the things he does not want to do. In other words, Paul, like the rest of us sins. Thank God for Romans 8, as Paul declares that there is now no condemnation for those of us who are in Messiah.

While this is not an excuse to sin, it does point us to the one who died in our place, so that we may know grace and know grace more abundantly.

Whatever is going on in our lives, when we feel pressed in and cornered, when it seems the enemy comes in like a flood, remember, the battle belongs to the Lord and the gates of hell shall not prevail against us!

“I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”  Romans 11:4

WND

‘TEMPLE OF BAAL’ TO GO UP IN NEW YORK, LONDON

Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2016/03/temple-of-baal-to-go-up-in-new-york-london/#oHDgi1tCui7txUom.99

“The principal pillars of Baalism were child sacrifice, sexual immorality (both heterosexual and homosexual) and pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator).

“Ritualistic Baal worship, in sum, looked a little like this: Adults would gather around the altar of Baal. Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity. Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies. The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of “mother earth.”

I suppose this is a different kind of Bun, but one that I believe needs to be addressed, so here we go.

I first heard about this story last week and was appalled. The powers that be are couching the erection of the Temple of Baal as an event to defy ISIS, who destroyed the temple and world-heritage site when they took over Palmyra, in Syria, in 2015.

Pleas take note of this. They are erecting two temples, one in New York and the other in London, which are essentially the financial capitals of the world. In my opinion this is deliberate. It’s another in-your-face occult spectacle. The question to me is this, why now?

I believe we turned a corner, or crossed a line,  last year when gay marriage became the law of the land. You will notice that Justice Anton Scalia opposed gay marriage and, in fact, wrote a scathing rebuttal to what amounts as judicial fiat—the passing of law by a few judges without the consent of the people.

You will also note that Scalia is no longer with us having succumbed to a heart attack? However, details have emerged which may point to foul play. (A subject of another post.)

The rise of the homosexual/gay agenda is, in my opinion another sign that we are in the last days, or days that are similar to the Days of Noah. As the article above states the hallmark of Baal worship was, in fact, child sacrifice with bisexual orgies commencing at the same time. This is nothing short of ritualistic sex magic.

BaphometThe fact that the temple is being erected is something that I never would have imagined, almost like the erection the Baphomet statue in Oklahoma city. The occult paradigm that was once practiced in the ancient world is rising and with it the seduction of our youth and others who are foolish to believe the party line, about “cultural heritage.”

Contrary to what our president has claimed, this is still a Christian nation, and I, for one, will raise my voice in protest of this temple to The Fallen Cherub.

The Baal temples being erected in both New York and London is an abomination and I will not bend my knee to the Prince of Hell.

This is yet another reason why: The only way out of this mess may be up! Maranatha!

Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.

1 John 4:4

This scripture is a declaration. I have it written on my heart and also in my collection of scriptures that I call: Arrows for my quiver which is on my I-phone.  I pull out this powerful declaration when the enemy starts his nonsense, like an unwanted thought, or an accusation that suddenly pops into my head, or the feeling that I’m worthless, or any number of stuff that the enemy of our souls can conjure up.

We are born from above by the spirit of the living God. We are new creatures in our Messiah, our old life has passed away. When we are filled with His spirit we can say with confidence: Great is He that is in me…  

This simple declaration can stop the enemy in his tracks and push him back where he belongs.

Years ago I went to Dr. I. D. E. Thomas and we were having lunch together. I complained that the enemy was hitting me hard. He looked at me sagacioulsy and stated the above scripture. Great is He that is in you… I’ve never forgotten his reply and I’ve made this scripture part of my life.

 In closing todays short bun. When we are hounded and in the battle. We should know He is greater. He—Jesus—is our salvation, our shield, our truth, our peace, the author and finisher of our faith and He is the living WORD! Greater is HE!

1 Corinthians 13New International Version (NIV)

13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues,they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Here in the “love chapter” we find Paul’s admonition about love. Notice he starts by listing gifts, like prophecy and attributes, like all knowledge and states, without love these are essentially worthless, clanging gongs or what amounts to nothing.

I remember when my first pastor taught on this and he had everyone in the congregation insert their name in verses  4 through 7.

L.A. is patient, L.A. is kind. He does not envy, He does not boast, He is not proud. 5 He does not dishonor others, He is not self-seeking, He is not easily angered, He keeps no record of wrongs. 6 He does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 He always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

It’s laughable, isn’t it?

Paul continues telling us: But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues,they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

In other words, much of what we think is important, in the end won’t amount to a hill of beans. What will matter is the love we have for one another.

Yeshua tells us: They will know you are my followers by the love you have for one another. 

It’s not really about anything else but love and this love, what the Greeks called Agape, comes from the indwelling of the Spirit of the Living God.

I was at Prophecy Watchers a while back and Gary Stearman came up to me and with a twinkle in his eye stated: L.A. God is love! Thanks Gary, I needed to hear this and your statement made me go to 1 Corinthians 13, where I have been reading every day since. May I suggest reading it every day and see what happens. We need to wash our minds with the word. Pray that our Father will show us how to walk in love. In the end it’s all that really matters.

He Will Rule With a Rod of Iron.

Message to the Church in Thyatira
26‘He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, TO HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS; 27AND HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, AS THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father; 28and I will give him the morning star.…Revelation 2: 26-28

Lately I’ve been thinking about the kingdom that is to come, as this planet is coming apart at the seams. (I recently wrote a book about it. LOL!) I don’t believe we can fix what is happening on this blue ball. Some will say that is a pessimistic attitude, but think about it, how are we going to fix the ideology of the Mullah’s in Iran who shout death to America, death to Israel, like clock-work every Friday? 

How are we going to move 11 million illegal aliens out of our country, and how did they get here in the first place?

How can we fix Fukushima?

How can we stop the abortion  holocaust where over 1 BILLION babies have been killed since Roe v Wade.

The bottom line for me is we can’t and when we read the scripture above it becomes plain, at least to me, that the reason why Yeshua, our King, rules with a rod of iron, is because there is no other way to bring peace and justice on this earth. Remember, we will be flying to earth with Him, on our white horses, but there are millions and millions of people who will be here on the earth when He returns who are not in glorified bodies.

This is the kingdom age, the literal millennium, where Yeshua/Jesus reigns on earth for one thousand years. I doubt there will be abortion mills, porno films, crackhouses, strip joints, gangs, dishonest politicians, sex slaves, and a host of other nasty things which will not be tolerated in the Kingdom.

However, those of us who are in glorified bodies will be managing the kingdom with Yeshua/Jesus. I have no idea how this will take place, but I believe we will be given villages, towns or cities to be in charge over, to help with the transition.

I don’t think for a minute Yeshua/Jesus is going to tolerate gay parades, bullying, tattoo parlors, lewd and provocative dressing, twerking, Victoria Secret, and Super Bowl half-time shows with the likes of Madonna or Katy Perry!

He will rule from Jerusalem, and He will bring peace to the earth, and healing to the nations, but He will rule with a rod of iron. Remember too that the Fallen Cherub, Satan is cast into the bottomless pit for a thousand years, so the ruler of the world who is creating much of the insanity that we see at the moment, will no longer be able to do so. Maranatha!
