    the 1968 prophetic report is great.Please tell me more,

  5. God bless you.

  6. dwbeliever May 13th 2012

    Heard this this morning: “God is neither male nor female, so if you feel more comfortable, you can worship your mother God (instead of Father God).”

    Is this from the Kabbalah teachings? Is this a teaching that is going around the prophetic movement?

  7. Dear Sir,

  8. Andrew,

    I have been studying the things you have written and exposed. I didn’t know what was wrong in some of these church meetings and I couldn’t name it for a while. But, I believe you. I believe what you have said about the false revivals and prophetic movement here in the U.S. I believe it is the LORD who opened your eyes, and in turn you are warning others. Thankyou to you and anyone else who is working with you. I don’t know everyone’s name but wanted to thank them as well.

  9. want to be placed on your mailing list

  10. want to be placed on your mailing list. i want to learn more on personal revival thanks

    Hello Andrew, Nice to see the site up. Pray all goes well with it. Many blessings.

  12. I appreciate your site. Please put me on your mailing list. Thank you. I have been a missionary in Kenya for over 9 1/2 years…with all the false teachings and movements it is refreshing to find such good articles…a light in the dark…God bless you. Mama Jo

  13. All the best with the new site.

  16. letter from Steve Camp is right.

    Many of us have been saying this for years.

  17. letter from Steve Camp is right.

    Many of us have been saying this for years.

    right on right on right on

  18. There is a sound afoot. It’s the sound of the Lord putting our flesh under our feet, accompanied by screaming and gnashing of teeth. If anything less than this, we haven’t repented.

    Our flesh is a formidable foe and we must never think our own is excepted (or accepted).

    Money the root of evil, yes, but further….The dirt in which the root grows is our flesh nature that wants its own way without God in it. Money is the power to accomplish that. It’s impossible to commit to both God and money. We must be faithful to one or the other.

    I could not agree more with the article about Christian “music”. I wake up to it in the morning listening to it because it is so bad that I could not go back to sleep if I wanted to. Not only are the words bad, but the musicians and vocalists are also quite bad. The theology is unbelievable. To bad that there are not enough discriminating people out there to say enough is enough and not purchase this mindless stuff that has little to do with our walk with our Lord.

  21. Traveler Oct 19th 2012

    Good to see things getting back to normal.

  22. Lindie Gibson Oct 24th 2012

    in regards to SELF – we are living the crucified life where we have died and are dying daily to self, by listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, ( radio station I AM ) or we are listening to radio station WII FM ( what’s in it for me )

  23. Vince Cedrone Nov 5th 2012

    all nations destroy themselves from within, no one seems to learn from history. once you hit stage 5, then God destroys the nation or they become a third world nation. This is caused from good christian people that sit and do nothing. PRAY for our nation and that they will turn around. Pray that Obama does not go back in, if he did then the Judgment that is already here will get far worse.

  24. Living in America I have to wonder if God has left America to herself and we never even noticed.!!!..

  25. -Fodder! American chose the president, God had nothing to do with it. If US turns its back to Jesus, they’ll have to manage it all by themselves. Kingdom of Heaven cannot be ignored for ever. They’ll l eventually repent if they if they survive, provided they do any reflective thinking.

    Besides the Kingdom of Heaven is here already, which is the good news. Therefore get in to action!

  26. judy mahar Nov 8th 2012

    Read your Article on the election. Your reasons enumerated are precisely why we wanted a Romney/Ryan ticket, we are ready for a new beginning in America. I belong to the Nita Johnson World for Jesus Ministries Intercessors who have prayed fervently for this nation to come back to its first love. Jesus. We know there is only one way that works for all, the Rock of Ages. We have true intercessors, Joel’s Army as Father has named them, to cry out on behalf of the church in America and for the demise of the darknesses over our land. The people are in a stupor here, right is wrong and wrong right. Please join us in praying that the eggs of Python will be destroyed as this serpent seeks to devour our nation. The battle rages and every prayer makes a difference and so does Christ alive IN us outreaching to this nation. If we shine with that divine life of the Holy Spirit, the nation will shine once again.

    Judy

  27. Lindie Gibson Nov 8th 2012

    Andrew – this morning’s mailing from Wolfgang Simpson is very good… I have seen the whole picture for quite sometime…. God had to withdraw His hand from America – so that judgement might come ( not by His hand, but by our reaping what we have sown ) so that America can be cleansed and brought to its knees and then rebuilt once again on godly principles, with God as our true head.
    Lindie in Montana

  28. Donna Hansen Nov 8th 2012

    I agree with a lot of the points you have made here, but I think you failed to mention one point. We, as Christians need to stand for God’s principals in this corrupt society…therefore we need to take a stand on issues like
    abortion and Gay marriage…because of our faith in Jesus Christ.

  29. Mitch Nov 9th 2012

    I agree with what you say here. Maybe the election will cause some more earnestness…..but I rather see that it must be the whole hearted and skilled biblical presentation of the gospel with the prayer support as God requires is the prescription. All must stand before the Lord in the truth that we sincerely and desperately need Him NOW. All are lost with out Him! Seeking Him with our whole heart we have His promise that He will be found. Without the whole heart there is no such promise exists.

  30. Steve Whalen Nov 10th 2012

    It is about time that a message of truth comes out to comfort and call God’s people back to where they belong. I give thanks to the Lord Jesus that the message is beginning to be spoken. I will be speaking to my brothers and sisters in the Lord of the Truth of what our Lord is doing in America. Bless His Holy Name.

  31. BJacobs Nov 10th 2012

    Hey

  32. Lindie Gibson Nov 10th 2012

    Is America under Judgement…? Yes – he Loves us because we have been called by His Name – a Christian Nation and we have strayed…. Three days before 9-11-2001 I received a word that the walls were down… Yes – that spiritual hedge of protection has been removed and because of God’s great love for America – He is allowing us to reap what we have sown, in order that every man woman and child might return to Him and America as a nation might be cleansed… Tough stuff – but it’s necessary…. Watch the Isaiah 9:10 movie on youtube.com and see for yourself – America is following in ancient Israel’s footsteps… We must enter in to the ark of His protection in order to survive the coming calamaties upon the earth; not just America….The name of the ark is – ‘Abiding in Jesus’…. Blessings from Montana, Lindie

  33. around 2008 or slightly before I began to know by our Lord that when efforts would be make to destroy (and I am speaking about those whom we trust to lead in our political system), that God would raise up a standard against the effort. Then they would try again and it would baffle their minds why their evil efforts were not working, so they would try something else. I was not aware at the time of a similar senerio scripture in Nehemiah until 2012…The God of all can do anything. Man can’t, God can! We are in the midst of another effort from those who will attempt to try our God.
    I am EXCITED that HE, ALMIGHTY AND EVERLASTING has every nation in the palm of HIS hand! Be blessed precious people of God. HE cares for YOU!

  34. Kathleen in WA State Nov 14th 2012

    Powerful and sobering! I’ve had similar thoughts, especially about how God’s people clamored for a king during Samuel’s time. What they really wanted was to be out from under God’s thumb – which, in truth is His grace & righteousness. We see what it got them, not to mention the miserable epoch that followed.

    We have a King. And, while our hearts may be troubled over the plummet of this country, we can draw comfort & new marching orders in looking to Him and not our U.S. President. If ever there was a time in U.S. history to share Good News, today is that day!

  35. Jo Sappenfield Nov 16th 2012

    I read both part 1 and part 2 from Wolfgang and Mercy Simpson. Thank you for speaking the truth–May the Holy Spirit prick our hearts with it and grant us repentance to the acknowledging of it with our actions.

  36. 'grandma' Jeanne Nov 20th 2012

    WE are also told to follow the old paths …WE have to be very careful about ‘new’ things….God is the same yesterday, today and forever….
    We have brought new ‘music’ into the churches…awful stuff….not Godly…
    It goes on and on….

  37. STOP THE BLATANT SINNING

    da, do you know what is and what isn’t sinnable…?????…..
    go somewhere the Bible is taught and preached and give it up for the Lord. you don’t really need or want the HIGH life. Hell is not some place of fiction or something you have gone through or anything you want to go through. Only one prayer for you and me is needed and that is to REPENT. SHALOM, jim

  38. David A. Whyte Nov 29th 2012

    I just now regestered and haven’t read the comments before me.
    so if I repete, please forgive me. …….With all that has previously been investigated about rythm patterns that are harmonious with the rythm of the human heart (of which I’m still ignorant or not sure) I suspect there may be some truth to this thought though.
    Anyway to me, it bears looking into. Rap or anything similar makes me uncomfortable. Could it be an ethnic rythm compatability? Maybe!! Maybe there is more freedom in the Holy Spirit than we in our little box may suspect.

  39. Teresa Nov 29th 2012

    What an awesome video. It was really encouraging and I believe that is what we are all called to do. Jesus said that we would do even greater things than he did. May God bless you in your continued ministry

  40. VIDEO IS FINE…WE NEED TO BE LIKE PAUL AND BE ALL THINGS TO PEOPLE…EVEN CULTURALLY RELATE TO FOLKS I BELIEVE IS WHAT PAUL MEANT.

    SEE WHOSOEVERS.COM WHICH MAY BE ON THE EDGE FOR YOU BUT THEY ARE GETTING SOULS SAVED!

    BLESS YOUR SONG ANDREW!

  41. Video and song is fine – but we don’t need more songs. Otherwise the song making machine of Hillsong would be ushering in a tsunami of Holy Spirit revival (and it most certainly doesn’t!!).
    We need deep repentance and the true fear of God to hate sin, hate the world and love uncompromising righteousness. We will bear much fruit if we stay in the Vine and God will be glorified by this. Please don’t get distracted with Old Testament worship. Keep in the New Testament.

  42. marie stewart Dec 4th 2012

    just testing to see if I am registered or not as I had a problem before getting in.

  43. marie stewart Dec 4th 2012

    Ok I am in. God bless you all. In reference to what was said before as I was reading I picked up via the Holy Spirit how can you call me Lord and not do what I say. Luke 6 46 I had to go and look up the address. I wish the HS when He gives us an answer by cripture would give us the address where it is found. LOLOLOL Anyhoo The tree is known by its fruit right, but i don’t see too much fruit these days in so many people. I sought the Lord on this and I found out that many people make a decision for Christ/saved/say the salvation prayer, but they never come to the place of being born again by the Spirit of God via the Holy Spirit. Birthed not of the will of man/our will/ but by the will of God. Only the Lord knows those who are His. I believe the last greatest revival will be the true bride of Christ rising up in might and power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit, and then many quote unquote saved people, will become truly born again by the Spirit of God. Jesus Himself said it, except a man be born again, they will not be able to hear see or speak according to the Kingdom of God. Flsh and blood cannot enter the Kingdom of heaven. Not everyone who says to me Lord Lord shall enter into the Kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Jesus said that, I did not. We need to get serious now about the things of the Kingdom, the true Bride shall win over the counterfeit bride of Christ. It has already started and we are now on countdown I believe when the whole earth shall know that HE IS LORD TO THE GLORY OF THE FATHER, amen. Just my 2 cents worth brethren. be blessed

  44. michaellbooth Dec 4th 2012

    We as a small group have been looking at and are about to start Home Church where I live, I come from a country town in South Australia and have found that the churches there are all into the latest doctrines or are traditional religion. What you are saying in your latest letter is what Simple church or Home church seems to be where we can help each other and interact as believers, which doesn’t happen in large groups.

  45. when Amercia, including the church has been fooled by Obama so easely, it will be no problem for the antichrist to decive the multuides!

    Andrew, I became a believer 27 years ago drawn by the prospect of community living akin to acts.

  47. Mark Phillips Dec 11th 2012

    Hello,I’m just an unregenerate Gentile ; but just to throw two cents in :

    (I wanted to reply to the ‘New thing’ piece but not sure if on right thread here ; after pressing ‘login’ I’ve ended up here ; bear with me ; new user !)

    It would be nice to see the living God doing an OLD thing in the West – almost 2000 years old) ; that is,to see the dead raised and sick healed in the name of Messiah Jesus. And to see people genuinely receiving the Holy Spirit in a manner consistent with Acts 2:4/8:18/10:44-47/19:6 ?

    Evangelicals talk about REVIAL over coffee ; it would actually be nice to see RETRENCHMENT (to old apostolic doctrine and practice) from the frontline trenches.

    This is one of the best books on old-thingology :

  49. Brian Blauer Dec 12th 2012

    You have nailed it! Relativism has been fed to the “children” from the cradle in our entertainment industry, education and sadly it has worked itself into the church – “like yeast.” I do appreciate your ministry and anointed words. Keep on warning and exhorting as clearly, the days are evil and dark, BUT JESUS IS THE LIGHT AND GOD IS GOOD!

  50. Kathleen in WA State Dec 12th 2012

    Hardly a week passes that I don’t hear someone say: “It doesn’t matter what you believe, so long as you’re a good person.”

    It’s just another form of spin to that age-old, twisted lie that Satan put to Adam & Eve: “Did God REALLY say ____?”

    Indeed, if ever we needed preachers who’ll summon people to repentance & righteousness, today is that day!

  51. Bro Cope Dec 12th 2012

    Your blog on the dominant lie is spot on. I have been stressing this a lot lately. It is a direct decedent of the first lie – Ye shall not surely die.

    I have found that all the lies that were hissed between serpent lips are ALL active today and holding the world and the church in bondage to sin.

  52. One problem I ssee today is that a lorge portion of evangelical churches are morphing into enertatainment based social centres ( parties, programs, pot-lucks,hand-shaking/ greetings/ socializing during the worship hour, etc.,we can’t even give Him that one hour! – Like in the Garden of Gethsemine. (Matthew 26:40) I’ve seen this non-worship nonsense go on for a full 5 min. before all were seated again! You call that worship? I can’t!
    To actually thing a thing to be wrong (sin) for the christian? I’d be branded a legalist very quickly!
    If Christians and pastors won’t wake up , who will? And you talk about revival? Isn’t the definitian of revival “resucitation from near death?” (I’m also thinking of entertainment based so called “retreats” some church people go on! You’re right – revival has to start with ME

  53. Of all the errors of current Christian preaching and teaching, in my opinion the greatest and most destructive is the teaching that Divine grace is an alternative to growth in godly behavior.
    It is true rather that Divine grace is the Lord Jesus Christ, enabling us to keep His commands, rather than our trying to keep the Law of Moses..
    Dr. Robert B. Thompson

  54. David Wine Dec 14th 2012

    Brother, relative to the article on sin, I do agree. However, It appears that what the church has identified as sin may be part of the problem. God has said repeatedly that the shedding of innocent blood is one of the closest actions a nation can do that is unforgivable. (see King Mannaseh judgement)
    God warned that He could not abide in a land that was filled with innocent blood.
    Estimates of 50 million abortions in the US have been performed since legalization.
    It is clear to me that as God has lifted Himself from our land, a spirit of violence has come in.
    Yes Jesus lives in me, but God help our land.
    There are many other sins that the church must speak out on and not cause a self exaltation by only preaching a few avoidable sins of the flesh. David Wine

  55. Mark Phillips Dec 17th 2012

    David Wine,

    hello,I’m just an unregenerate Gentile ; but just to throw these two cents in :

    David,when it comes to violence,do read this classic on the history of ‘Catholicism’ and ‘Protestantism’ (alas,’Foxes book of Martyrs’ gives an unbalanced picture of what has actually teken place) :

    http://www.amazon.com/Reformers-Their-Stepchildren-Dissent-Nonconformity/dp/1579789358/ref=cm_cr-mr-img

  56. Sadly, many American “Christians” have more faith in the doctrines and traditions of man then in the commandments of Almighty Yahweh!
    The words of man do not give us everlasting life but, the Living Word of Elohim surrendered His Body and Blood for our damnable souls.
    Part of the great deception that many American “Christians” are preparing to lay their lives down for is a call for true repentance to the Living Word which is in the Son Messiah Yahsuah.
    Not one martyred disciple or apostle died with a weapon in their hand; and would have never put their lives up to keep a weapon. We are called to stand for the sake of the Name unto blood–leaning on The Everlasting Arm–not the arms of man.
    “Say to them, ‘As I live,’ declares sthe Master Yahweh, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wrong, but that the wrong turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Yisra’el?’
    And you, O son of man, say to the children of your people, ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression. And as for the wrongness of the wrong, he shall not stumble because of it in the day that he turns from his wrong. And the righteous shall not be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’
    When I say to the righteous that he shall live, and he has trusted in his righteousness, and shall do unrighteousness, none of his righteousness shall be rememberered, but because of his unrighteousness that he has done, he shall die.’” Ezekiel 33:11-13
    Let us pray for those American “Christians” who are being mislead unto the death of their souls.
    Be well, in health, prepared and ready at His appearing.
    Shalom.

  57. Read the email about coming civil war in America. It rang a bell in me because back in 2002, I had a vision I called The Stampede. Not enough room to relay it all here, but suffice it to say that I saw modern Christianity (peace, prosperity, blessings, and “love”) heading to a cliff like a swarm of lemmings. Then something terrible and explosive happened, and there were only a few left wandering around in shell-shock. There’s much more to the vision, but I do know that something much worse than 9/11, Katrina, or anything else is coming to America to shake her to her very roots. Only then can there be a move of God here. And that is the mercy of God.

  58. antipas4yahshua Jan 21st 2013

    John the Baptist & the Apostle Paul comes to mind.

    - John was unlawfully jailed for pointing out illegal behavior of the ruler and was wrongfully prisoned and latter killed.

    -Paul stood against / rebuked / defended against religious leaders, the apostles, the religious Jews, the political system, the educational system, and the financial market and pulled out the “Roman citizen” card a couple times.

    - The earlier martyrs lived in the catacombs

    - Joesph & Mary disobeyed and left for Egypt

    - The Magi lied and disobeyed Herod

    “Be wise as serpents but gentle as doves”

    Disobeying the government – one had better be sure it is for the sake of righteousness, the Kingdom of God, and hearing from Jesus.

    My pastor out of San Diego (Robert Thompson) said revival was coming to American and it would be in the midst of blood and tribulation. I believe it.

    I see this as a battle between the spiritual titans(Christ vs AntiChrist) blow for blow ie “nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom”. G_d will also use this to purify His church and separate the wheat from the chaff of the lukewarm and the disciples.

    I addition, with US backing gone. Israel will be bitterly persecuted and have to stand and fight for herself.

    The common thread between the elect Jews and the elect disciples of Christ is righteous, holiness, and stern obedience to the word of G-d (this is we used as a witness of Christ to the elect Jews).

    Shlalom

  59. antipas4yahshua Jan 21st 2013

    Btw, the “highest calling” for any disciple of Christ is the badge of martyrdom. They will be given a crown a life and I believe a “go the front on the line and VIP treatment on the First Resurrection.

    It is the highest privilege in the Kingdom to give ones life for the sake of the gospel / Kingdom (please meditate on this).

    Shalom

  60. David Ortega Jan 22nd 2013

    Andrew,
    Who are these brothers with visions and dreams about civil war. I have a problem with “God talk” that begins with “the Lord showed me.” Since we don’t have appointed “apostles” like the 12 and Paul, on what basis do these people claim to have such a word from the Lord? Hebrews clearly tells us that in these last days God has spoken to us through a Son. I appreciate your even handedness and biblically-based analysis and critique of all things pentecostal. It helps me as I navigate the claims and practices of pentecostalism as I consider myself pentecostal at heart. That is, I believe the Holy Spirit is still active today healing and leading individuals to Christ. But the “vision’ claims continue to create problems of understanding for me. How much credence should we give to these claims that “the Lord showed me” are truly from Him?

    David

  61. antipas4yahshua Jan 22nd 2013

    @ David – Here are a couple of NT references and I could up with plenty more in the NT as well as the OT.

    1 Cor 14:29
    Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said.

    Acts 21
    9 This man had four virgin daughters who prophesied.
    10 While we were staying there many days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. 11 He came to us, took Pauls belt, tied his own feet and hands, and said, This is what the Holy Spirit says: In this way the Jews in Jerusalem will bind the man who owns this belt and deliver him into Gentile hands. 12 When we heard this, both we and the local people begged him not to go up to Jerusalem.

    Like anything – chew the fish and spit out the bones.

    Shalom

  62. antipas4yahshua Jan 22nd 2013

    @David – G_D does have apostles out in the world today. They are seldom recognized as G_D keeps His favorites hidden away and close to Him. The bulk are in other 2nd & 3rd world countries.
    Material wealth and comfort is a direct enemy to spiritual growth.
    That is the reason why Sundar Singh left the USA very quickly after his arrival. While some westerners may disagree – he is highly regarded and was considered a apostle. In addition, he met the criteria as far as I can tell.

    Just because you arent aware of them, doesn’t mean they dont exist.

    Shalom,

    Mike

  63. Vlmallas Jan 23rd 2013

    I know the general consensus is that Lot was indifferent to the sin around him but that isn’t what the scripture says. (see below)He’s described as “Just Lot” vexed by the sin around him. So yes I am like him. Another point -the way to identify a false prophet is watching to see if his prophecies are realized.

    And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: (2 Peter 2:6-9 KJV)

    Andrew – concerning your article on guns, I’d like to comment on how I see things….
    I see the guns issue – as a rights issue, and yes – in the past the 2nd ammendement right was to protect us from the Indians… but I see no problem with guns for a sport ( target practice) or for hunting. Our family of 7 grew up eating wild meat because of my father’s modest income to feed us with..
    Assalt weapons are an entirely different issue… Is our faith and trust in weapons or in God ‘ some men trust in horses and some men trust in chariots, but blessed is the man whose trust is in the Lord’ ( or something like that.)

    Yesterday in Utah, my 18 yr old granddaughter was held at knifepoint and kidnapped and then released, and she is fine… No gun involved. The outcome could have been tragic, but it wasn’t… We know God is with her. I feel bad for the drug-addicted woman who felt the need to do this to my granddaughter, and so now I am praying for this woman…. My granddaughter will be fine. She knows the Lord, and my focus is on praying for the woman who cimmited these crimes against my granddaughter, and her salvation. She did a foolish thing and as a result – will now being doing prison time for her actions. Anyway…. no gun was involved and our family doesn’t feel guns are the answer to anything… Is not God greater than a gun…?!

    The gun issue is a Christian issue – only because – where do we place our trust – just as with our governement – where do we place our trust…

    If every Christian truly prayed for those in authority over us ( as we are commanded in Scripture to do ) there would be NO criticism of the government – even with all its ‘warts’ and those in authority over us would be changed people…. ‘ Except the Lord build the house – they labor in vain that build it’ and obviously He has not been able to continue to build America the way it was meant to be – because Christians – through lack of prayer – are not sending Him the building material…. Our prayers move His heart and His hands – and the condition America is in today is soley a reflection of the church ( God’s people ) ….

    We are disgusted at the corruption in our government – but it is also in us… Where the light is – darkness scatters; and so why is America filled with darkness…? Simply because His church is filled with it as well… Compromise is deadly…

    Our posture towards our government should be that it is a vehicle through which God blesses us, but instead – we have made our governement an idol we worship… and so our loving and jealous God has to bring it down…. To me – saluting the flag means honoring what that red white and blue piece of fabric represent, not the flag itself… Just as with a funeral where the deceased has been cremated and there is a box up at the altar with a photo of teh deceased, we are not honoring the box, nor giving respect to the photo – but what ( or whom) they represent…

    supporting the troops means honoring the men and women who fight for freedom – in our country as well as the people under demonic and tyrranical leadership in other countries. Is it not our God-given command and duty to speak up for and defend those who cannot…

    And as far as the Constitution not being a Christian document – I have to disagree here… The principles are God-given principles, even thought the wording is different… Everything doesn’t have to have ‘JESUS” rubber-stamped all over it. All our founding documents are indeed Christian, as was the foundation of our country….I grow weary over the debate about our founding fathers being Christians or not… everyone needs to do themselves a favor and settle the issue once and for all – by watching this short video…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pXltPMDxE0

    and also – Nationalism and religion SHOULD be a mixture… because being a Christian SHOULD be manifest in every area of our lives…. that’s like trying to separate a dog from his bark…. Was not ancient Israel a people as well as a religion….?

    Revival will never be a part of America until revival takes place in the hearts and minds of God’s people… and that only comes through knowing God’s Word and in obedience walking it out – as a changed people….

    Being from Montana, I know we can visit the farm and take a pig rolling in the mud and hose him down and it’s only a matter of time before he is back in the mud. What that pig needs is a heart transplant. And until we surrender to God giving us a new heart – a Lamb’s heart – we are no different than those who do not know God….and we will continue to roll in the mud….

    The world is full of Christians… we don’t need anymore Christians… what we need are disciples – a people willing to live and walk a separated life – and yes; that means making a difference in our governments and the small little corners of the world we live in…

    At night when I turn on the light in my living room – it casts the light out my window – on to my lawn; the darkness does not come in and throw a shadow on to my living room floor. Lights shine without making a sound, and that’s who we are called to be… in order to make this world a better place and expect other’s lives to be turned right side up… It all begins with us – and although this life is only a bus stop on our journey to heaven, we can make a difference and leave the passengers at the bus stop – a better place to be – when we know God and be who the Father of Lights has called us to be….

    - just my thoughts…

    To quote Amos, “I’m not a prophet nor am I the son of a prophet.”It was more than 20 years ago when I had a dream that took almost 15 years of waiting on the Lord to understand. In my dream I was walking with a brother in the Lord Mark P. and it was raining, the outline of the sky was dark and I turned to Mark and said to him, “That’s the Holy Spirit of God and not even your prayers or mine can stop that”, I understood that the be God pouring out judgement. I can’t tell you how long we were on our journey but eventually we went under a pavilion, it was at this time that a little boy said to me,”hey mister”, he than pointed and I saw the Statue of Liberty face down. When I went under the pavilion Isa26:20-21 was pressed into my mind and has been with me ever since.
    Much of the dream is/ was a mystery to me and over the time I’ve always been able to draw some parallels from to scripture, like the ark in the temple of dagon the fish god..etc….the KJV ref to pavilion, and so forth.it was less than 5 years ago when I finally understood one portion of the dream, and that being the Statue of Liberty face down. It only took me 15 years, The Lord will judge the one thing “we” Americans boast on most…”our liberty”. The Christians response to such will be found in hiding in the Lord’s pavilion and abiding there in simple child like faith.Deep theological understanding will not serve the child of God in the days ahead.

    Because of this dream I have a very different understanding about the times and effect on this country.Personally I do believe there will be a time where we are in a martial law state and possibly the UN will be asked to help police larger American city’s and the Roadways.I believe we will be forced into a war with North Korea and while at war we will be attacked by Iran who will temporarily cripple us, which will lead up to the martial law state and the request for help from the UN for peace keepers.
    Interesting times we live in.

  68. Lindie Gibson Feb 4th 2013

    as far as the outlook and outtake of this topic – what separates America from all other nations is …. we were absolutely founded as a Christian nation, and therefore when we give our allegiance to this country – we are honoring God as its founder…. Yes; we are merely passing through and this world is not our home, but…. we are to make an impact and leave behind a better place because of our having been here…. and sadly enough – like ancient Israel – we were not satisifyed with just God, in fact – we started forsaking Him as a Nation, and we wanted an earthly king – just like ancient Israel – and we will fall because of it…. God is a jealous God and we cannot serve two masters nor have any idols in our lives…. because God will bring them ( it all ) down…. To many of us Patriotism is our loyalty to God – in that are we not told in Scripture to render unto Caeser what is Caeser’s… and that all auhtority is chosen by God… Even Obama has been chosen – to be the whipping post so to speak that will be used to disicpline America. Misguided Christians are getting caught up in the gun issue, but only because we are notcontinually renewing our minds by the washing of the water of the Word. Last week in Utah, my 18 yr old granddaughter was abducted at kinfe point… so guns weren’t the issue there, and she was let go – unharmed – and we know it was the grace of God and that He and His angels were with her…. To a degree, Andrew, I see what you are saying…. because we are placing too much FAITH IN guns, and seat belts, and first alert necklaces and cell phones for emergencies, and the list goes on and on…. and THAT is the mark of the beast in the right hand and forhead – where everything we THINK and DO is based on this world’s carnal thinking because we have not put on the mind of Christ….

    point in clarification: just as there are inaugural celebrations, there are prayer breakfasts. few venues would hold all of the invited people, therefore the simplest answer is to have these celebrations and breakfasts in multiplicity and according to interest groups. The one Jonathan Cahn spoke at was a mix of Christians, of various doctrinal orientations. I’m sure there were some dominion theory advocates there, but Rabbi Cahn’s book was not about dominion theory it was about warning people that many in USA are no longer focused on God. Including leaders of the land.
    He is, very biblically, trying to heal the breach.
    I believe that those who point fingers and find fault and label are often also not truly focusing on God either.

  70. pazmayim Feb 12th 2013

    I served in a ‘seeker oriented’ non-denominational church for 5 years. Our pastor did NOT avoid the term sin and did not avoid ‘difficult topics from the Bible’. Repentance and reliance on the LORD was his passion.
    He was vulnerable about sharing his own past problems and gifted in presenting truth. Why is it that so many Christians can only find fault with other believers rather than focus upon reaching the lost?

  71. john wark Feb 22nd 2013

    Dear Brother Andrew, I am so greatful for your faithfulness to the “Word of Truth.” When i was first introduced to your website, i thought you to be a little radical and somewhat judgemental towards certain Ministries. Over the years i have come to appreciate your stand for truth. I too am troubled with much of what takes place in the church at present. We seem to have not only lost a true balance, but for many, our “First Love,” Jesus. No amount of program or gold dust, will ever replace true “Intimacy’ with Christ! In response to some who have written concerning finding a Church with anointed teaching and Holy Ghost Power, I am in heartfelt agreement. I would just like to encourage all of our discouraged Brethren to Stand by Faith…or should i say kneel in Faith. I believe Prayer and Repentance are still required to bring Revival! I pray that the Church will fall on her knees and begin to once again apply, 2 Chronicles 7:14. “IFmy people which are called by my Name shall HUMBLE themselves and PRAY and SEEK my face and TURN from their wicked ways, THEN I will hear from Heaven and FORGIVE their SIN and HEAL their land.” This is my constant prayer for the Church. Oh, Brothers…Sisters, Let us not grow weary! Let us come together in unity, with one mind and one accord until Revial floods our Nation! May the Lord richly bless and keep you!

  72. With my husbands recent salvation after 34 years, he is happy at a local Methodist church. It isn’t perfect but there are some there who love The Lord. I feel Gods peace in attending and maintain drawing near to Him daily. They vitally desire to serve the community & the lost.
    We pull in teachers/pastors thru Internet TV to feed us also.
    I was calling in on Fridays to Andrews prayer call but found no one there tonight.
    Thank you for your obedience & ears to hear.

  73. Stephanie Feb 24th 2013

    Hi and praise the Lord
    March 3 I will have been saved 34 years It was1979 and the Lord brought me a wonderful full gosple AG Church, KJB, sacred hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs, true Biblical preaching, teaching, and Holy Spirit filled fellowship Believers baptized in the Holy Spirit speaking with other tongues just ad SBN is. Christ centeted. One day believers started leaving I got out as it became apostate. My daughter and grandchildren visisted a couple of other AG churces but they are corrupted too They had a bunch of mafia acting types guarding the back of the church ! I asked the pastor about the secular music,.he threw us out . I couldn’t stop crying.because the service was phony My daughter cried too. I have Family Worship Center / Jimmy Swaggert Min.

  74. Stephanie Feb 24th 2013

    Sorry for typos, using my phone, my desktop PC isn’t working

    As for the King James Bible, as a brand new saved believer, 1979, I was sitting in the back on a Sunday evening a little old lady turndo me and said, “only stay with the King James Bible e and warned me of the consequences if I left God. I moved my head in agreement Many many many yrs later i was handed a Bible (was a NLT, & later handed a NIV, Womens Devo.) I put my KJB under my bed. I was unhappy with those bibles. Something was wrong with them. I felt led to get my KJB 2 yrs had passed, I got the dust off. I opened all 3 & started comparing, scriptures WHAT A SHOCK I repented, called my daughter, she came over with her bibles she repented and we destroyed the counterf bks from hell. We only stay with the King James Bible.
    My daughtet attended a Bible study (all apostate, full of evil, they & pastor laughed at her KJB, later that. Soon after her pro niv spouse tore aoar

  75. Stephanie Feb 24th 2013

    tore apart her KING JAMES BIBLE, around 16 pgs. I got her another one.
    Brethern, were in the wilderness but we’re not alone. God will and does fellowship with us. I have his word, my daughter, onl ine fellowship, SBN and (live on Sun. mornings, Sun. evenings, and Wed. evengs. SBN is on 24/7/365,) Seek his face, pray, read the word daily. Sing hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs, witness. I’m on fire hallelujah for God. Oh, and my daughtet lives 90 miles from me, so we can’t get together frequently as before.

    In Christ Jesus our God King Majesty Lord Savior

    P.s. SBN is in Louisiana, I’m in Md.

  77. In regard to “not being able to find a church”, my husband & I left the “church system” back in 1997. In our hunt for a church, it appeared hopeless as the same system was found everywhere…including Messianic services. I’ve often thought about how the Temple was destroyed 40 years (testing) after Jesus (Yeshua) ascended to His Father, and how, perhaps the church system would also be destroyed as well. I believe the Lord gives ample time for folks to see and change direction, but to date, we have not and continue to find people that are OK with attending for years at a church and may have an attitude of doing God a favor by showing up one day a week. True followers will find themselves at crossroads in this. I found He was enough…that by His Spirit, He could teach me and cause me to know Truth w/o church. He set me on a coarse of digging deeper and getting into Hebraic thinking of the scriptures, which has been a fascinating journey. Doesn’t change the Truth, but certainly expounds on it drastically. I meet with those of like minded-ness, but only once a month. There are few I have found that truly want Him as Lord, or are so hungry for Him. Many who I fellowship with (other than once a month w/Hebraic group) is by telephone, as they live long distances. But our hearts are connected and He sustains each of us. I am a fellow traveler with those who have left organized religion. Guess I just wanted to share my experience and to say to others….He is Faithful. He Sustains. He Uupholds His own. Thanks, Nancy J

  78. The Fallen Angels Lost there Identity in the Fall, Fall meaning that they where down Graded to an Alien race
    called the Niphlim, who then engaged in a Species War
    with humans to Pollute there DNA like theirs, NO IDENTITY or Lose of Identity/ This is also called the Mingled Seed of the Last Kingdom that can not Stand/

    The Last Days are compared to the Days of Noah, where this was what was going on then/ Now we see Christians thinking that they can get BORN AGAIN and still have CARNAL DNA?
    There is NO DNA IN THE SPIRIT, when you get Born again you have no SEX/ Jesus told us that Plainly/
    If you think you are Born Again and you are still trying to Live a CARNAL identity, then you are only fooling yourself. THERE IS NO DNA IN THE SPIRIT, that is why we Get Born Again, to get Rid of our DNA, espccially if you have Alien Dna, and lost your Identity.
    Now you Have One. ?? WAKE UP and get the MIND OF CHRIST.

  79. George Johns Mar 7th 2013

    I find some of the responses very interesting and sense a real hunger for God and truth. I like many others have a real concern for America, but so many have been hurt and disenchanted with “religion” as a result of so many “ministers” so called because they do not live a consecrated life and allow sin to rein in their lives.. People want a leader who is real and interested in their souls, not some man exercising the office of a priest, going through ritualistic ceremonies,but they need the genuine word of God from a God called, man of God.
    If people of the world could not tell the difference in me and the way I live, then I would be no different than they, but God has called us to be holy.
    I believe there is a place in God we can reach if we will make the necessary sacrifices and seek His face for the things He could entrust us with. Love not the world… Sincerely, Papi

    Your HYPERGRACE message this mroning kind of rattled my cage for a minute. Living in a small Montana community – I haven’t witnessed anything of this sort – but we really don’t have any good Spirit-led churches here either… Coming up higher – I see this movement as a test and sifting of the Lord – to sort out the sheep from the goats… Without sounding judgmental – this is God’s way of sorting those whose true devotion is for Him ( sheep for their Shepherd) and goats – who may be in the same pasture, but will eat anything, not just the green grass provided for them. We are living in extremely serious times, and it is our DUTY to pray for those who are being deceived and led astray…. Would we not do the same if we saw a stranger come take a little girl by the hand and lead her away…? We should have the same response for our little ‘brides of Christ’…. because – except for the grace of God – there go I….

  81. I use this prayer that the Lord has given me to set people free all over the USA and some in Canada. It sets peopel free quickly.
    Here is ther prayer.
    Getting Our Heart Right With God

    What we define doctrinally as salvation is, in truth, the entrance and then expansion of Christ’s presence within us. As we accept Him, Christ fills our imagination with Himself, drives out Satan and begins His transformational work, i. e., He begins to fill our imagination with the true images of God The Father. He then reveals truth to our minds and eliminates false truth, thus giving us insight into ourselves, other people and then filling our minds with the truth of God. He subsequently goes into our emotions and delivers us from all the hurts and pains that we have experienced from our past, as well as what we are experiencing now. He then fills our emotions with the true emotions of love, joy, hope and peace. He then goes into our memory and delivers us from all the false images we have stored in our memory that cause us so much emotional hurt and pain. Remember, in order to do all of this, He first has to drive Satan from our imagination and take his place there.

    Our journey in Christ is, at the same time, His journey into us. We are His Promised Land! We can be assured that even though Satan is in our lives, though he may have humiliated us, will not humiliate Jesus. Jesus will conquer Satan, set us free from any humiliation and dwell in us forever! Amen!

    To attain God’s glory is the reason for our existence. Consequently The Lord is more concerned with our “full conversion” than our fleshly comfort. He seeks to establish in us true holiness rather than false happiness. He will even bring us through floods and fires if necessary “to scourge away our addiction” to the goals of Satan and men. The outcome of what might seem like harsh or severe dealings is that, having been delivered from the deception of Satan in our imagination, mind, emotions, and memory, the glory of God Himself through Jesus Christ becomes our shelter.

    You are probably thinking right now, “How to I get rid of this fear and all the negative feeling it produces in me?” The answer is you cannot get rid of those feelings. You have to ask God to send Jesus to take the place of Satan in your imagination. Then Jesus can begin to fill your mind, emotions and memory with the love of God. No human has the power to deliver their imagination from the power of Satan. Satan’s power in your imagination came from Adam and Eve when they ate of The Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil. What they actually did without realizing it was to allow Satan to take over their imagination and to drive out Jesus from their imagination. Jesus came as a human, lived on the earth, died on a cross and rose from the dead in order to do away with what Adam and Eve decided to do in The Garden Of Eden. Jesus said it this way in John 14:6: KJV “ Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.’ ”

    If you want to be free, here is the prayer that you can pray daily that will cause Jesus to rule and reign in your imagination. Jesus will then systematically deliver and cleanse your imagination, mind, emotions and memory from all the lies that Satan has put into you.

    Father, I ask You to send Jesus into my imagination and drive Satan out of my imagination, as well as all of the false images Satan has placed in my imagination. I ask Jesus to fill my imagination with the true images of the kingdom of God.

    Father, I ask You to send Jesus into my mind and deliver my mind from all the agreements that I have with the false images in my imagination

    Father, I ask You to send Jesus into my emotions and deliver me from all the false emotions that I act out of based on the false images in my imagination, mind and memory.

    Father, I ask You to send Jesus into my memory and deliver me from all the false memories that I have from my past. I choose to live in the true memories of the Kingdom of God.

    Father, I ask You to send Jesus to deliver and heal my body from all of the sicknesses, diseases and infirmities that Satan has caused to come upon my body directly by Satan, or from anyone that Satan has caused to pray against me.

    Father, I thank You for sending Jesus and The Holy Spirit to me so that I can continually be delivered and healed from all the things that Satan tries to put in me.

    Father, I thank You for doing this for me now and until I come home to be with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit! Amen and Amen!

  82. I am sorry to hear that Rob Bell has adapted this (worldly) way of thinking, we must pray for the Holy Spirit’s conviction to overpower such a decision. It’s sad to see anyone stray off the narrow path and give into the “popular” Love themes. The hippies of the sixties used “Love” as an excuse to avoid serving their country or work, instead get high and indulge in “Free love”, which was much the same practices and life styles as those of Sodom & Gamorah. Maybe done in the name of Peace & Love buffering any conviction or guilt. I am glad to see however, that at least some of his congregation were in tune to the teachings of Christ to see that it was time to move on. Please Lord Jesus help us to stay the course on that “Narrow Path” which leads to You.

  83. Thanks brother for your clear words!
    Be Blessed.

  84. Why are we surprised in what Rob Bell is saying? Of course in his first coming out of the closet that there is no hell, we know that he has fallen. Of course by his second statement we now see the root of his falleness, and that he will soon come out of the closet and be found a homosexual. Stay tuned folks! I don’t understand how the christian community can keep discussing or tolerating this man even. Let’s be done with him and the bible says not to keep company with such heretics and sinners!

    On Israel and replacement theology: Andrew, we need to keep our eyes on The Lord regarding two very distinct objectives He has. He has a plan for the church clearly laid out all through both covenants, and a plan for Israel, His chosen people. Their fulness will come in after the fulness of the Gentile nations. Remember that Paul spoke of the invitation of Gods plan for salvation in Jesus was to the Jew first. There was a reason for that. He did not leave them out. The Old Testament wasn’t wiped out and the new covenant was its fulfillment. Jesus said I did not come to abolish the law (of God) but to fulfill it. We as Gentiles are not bound to keeping the ceremonial, sacrificial, cleansing, etc, but we are still responsible to OBEY and to KEEP God’s commandments as such. Those are enforced thoroughly throughout the new. The Spirit attests to Christs sacrifice as sufficient for us all to walk by faith. Remember, the law did not fail God’s people, they failed to keep it. Thus a new one given to be written on the hearts of all who believe. Our place as the gentile, grafted in portion is to remember the roots, and take heed that we ourselves follow The Lord. According to Romans, it should be even easier to be grafted into the new covenant for Jews. Our responsibility is to know and honor God through both covenants, while having the liberties the new one affords us.

  86. Israel? The Church? Hebrew Roots?…do not all suppose to point to the Messiah?
    There is only one Testament…and it is the Testament of our Messiah from Genesis to Revelation.

  87. Alec Cotton Apr 16th 2013

    I am amazed at the paucity of knowledge which is apparent in most people who take the name of Jesus. When I was in hospital recently, suffering from pneumonia, heart attack,underactive thyroid and gastric enteritis , the padre cme and stood by my bed. After I had spoken to him for about two minutes ,he said “ You have lost me completely!”. A week later he stood by my bed again and I said ,”I will ask you a leading question and see where it leads us”. “ You know that righteousness exalts a nation and sin is a reproach to any people and that when the righteous rule, the people rejoice” he said “yes!” I then asked him ,”What is righteousness.” He couldn’t answer. Here was a man of the cloth who was unable to define righteousness few Christians can. righteousness must mean obedience to the law and submission to the commandments. The commands ot God are just that They are not suggestions or guidelines or propositions . They are orders..No man can live without law. A game can’t even be played without rules. Where there is law ,there must be punishment. Where there are rules ,there must be penalties. There must be a standard . You can’t have two or three standards or confusion results. The only reliable standard is the law of God which is found in the penteteuch, the Torah, The first five books of the bible. Where do you place your parameters?. Where do you set your boundaries?. By what standard do you calibrate your conscience?. Where do you draw the line?. These questions must be addressed if there is to be any order at all.Now we come to the question ; Is it incumbent on the Christian to observe the annual feasts commanded by God. Most Christians act out a parody of the passover every week . They nibble a crumb of dry bread and take a sip of coloured water and call it communion. Some celebrate the feast of first fruits and call it “harvest festival” When I ask the parsons,preachers,pontiffs and pastors ; “What about the feast of trumpets?,” they look at me like something the cat dragged in. . People celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and yet refuse to celebrate the most important event in the history of mankind. . More important than the cross. Without this event ,there would be no cross. The festival commemorates the time when God issued his commands from Mount Sinai with a voice like a trumpet and millions of Israelites heard and their teeth rattled with terror. Well what about it do we submit or ignore.

  88. I constantly spent my half an hour to read this weblog’s posts everyday along with a cup of coffee.

  89. we need to pray for our brothers and sisters….anytime we see the false operating – that is our cue to pray and intercede on behalf of others…. It is only the grace of God that we see what we see – and God’s heart for us – is to respond with intercession….

  90. I appreciate the message by Lee Grady. For some reason, in our area – a number of churches have LOUD music and see nothing wrong with it… One church I visited recently – offers the congregation a bowl of ear plugs at the back of the church before you come in. Afterward, I saw a young boy of about 8 – come out of the church – rubbing his ears as if in pain…. This idea of LOUD music is a demonic practice and must stop. Where is the discernment….?

  91. Matthew Browne May 1st 2013

    Hi, my name is Matthew Browne. He the spirit of truth has revealed unto me that I belong to and come from the “House of Israel”. I was born into the Nation of Israel (ten lost tribes) that “I AM” set up from the beginning. All I am saying is that Abraham’s Father, Lord God (Guardian of Divinity) is the same God that I worship and follow.
    A Fifeshire Family: The Descendants of JOHN AND THOMAS PHILIP OF Kirkcaldy compiled by Peter Philip 1990.
    I am of Scottish Organs that made their known appearance in the middle of the fifteenth century around the year 1473 AD. Over a period of time they spread all over the world and some of them preached the Gospel of truth exactly as the Son of Man said would happen. Amen to that. I am a heritage to these great forefathers of mine and my real Heavenly Father- Lord God (Guardian of Divinity) has clearly said to me that I must stand for and promote the House of Israel and the Son of Man so that all nations, tongues and tribes can hear the Gospel of truth before the end of the age.
    The name Israel means CHAMPION OF GOD AND RULING WITH GOD.
    In this name (Israel) was and is the destiny of all men and will be stamped with the signature Lord God (Guardian of Divinity). For it says in

    Exodus 19:5-8 (KJV)
    Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
    7And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which “I AM” commanded him. 8And all the people answered together, and said, all that “I AM” hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto “I AM” .

    Numbers 6:22-26 (KJV)
    And “I AM” spake unto Moses, saying, 23Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, 24 “I AM” bless thee, and keep thee: “I AM” make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 “I AM” lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

    The Father and Son want to restore and redeem the marriage contract broken 2000 years ago by the Jewish Nation by accepting the Sacrificial Blood of the Son.

    DIVINE MARRIAGE

    a) “put my name on them”
    One of the mightiest figures in the pages of history is the man Abraham. Chosen by the LORD and called into His Service (Gen. 12:1-5) because, “I know him that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep The Way of the “I AM”, to do justice and judgement”. (Gen. 18:19)
    Abraham was no petty tribal chief of some ancient decadent people whose life related only to his immediate family and descendants, He was the man the “I AM” appeared to, (Gen. 12:7) and called him “Abraham, my friend”. (Isa. 41:8) A man of such faith that the Son could say of him, “Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it and was glad”. (John 8:56; King of kings’ Bible 8:47) The Covenant the “I AM” made with this man and his posterity was for the single purpose that “all families of the earth be blessed”. The work therefore to be accomplished by the “I AM” through this man and his descendants was for ALL MANKIND.
    Jacob, a grandson of Abraham, after being confirmed in Covenant with the “I AM” (Gen. 28:12-15) is marked by Him with a name showing the purpose of the Covenant. (Gen. 32:28) “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men”. The “I AM” God thus gives of His Own Name to this man. No longer simply, Jacob, but “Israel” meaning “Ruling with God” or “Champion of God”. This was the name to be used by the nation separated to serve Divine Purpose. In this name was the Destiny of man, and the history of the nation bearing it is symbolic as well as factual.
    The descendants of Jacob-Israel, some three million souls, on being released from bondage in Egypt following awesome revelation of Divine Salvation in the series of “plagues”, came “into the wilderness of Sinai”. (Ex. 19:1) Here, the “I AM” God covenants with them as a unit. “If ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My Covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth is Mine: And ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests* and an holy nation”. To this offer, the people give unanimous reply. “The people answered together, and said, All that the ‘I AM’ hath spoken we will do”. (Ex. 19:5-8) And so the nation Israel was brought into being, bearing in her name Divine Signature, and called by the “I AM” His “peculiar treasure” or, “Mine Own possession”.
    * Purists. Note well that it was not to be only individuals within the nation but the whole nation.
    Is not the official naming of this nation and the nearness of her relationship to her Creator seen in the Prayer of national blessing dictated by the “I AM”? “On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The “I AM” bless thee and keep thee: The “I AM” make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The “I AM” lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put My name upon the children of Israel: and I will bless them”. (Num. 6:22-27)
    “An holy nation” ¬ His Own possession. After the flesh this nation was descended from Jacob, whose name was changed. Changed to show by example both the spiritual strength of the man and the mission and Destiny of his descendants, Israel, “Ruling with God” to the end that carnal man becomes at-one with God, restored, redeemed. In the above Blessing, this changed name is officially placed on the national unit. Jacob-Israel had already under God’s guidance given the birthright to Ephraim and his name Israel specifically to Ephraim and Manasseh alone – Genesis 48:16. The “I AM” is thus seen to have given His Name collectively to this people, calling them His “Own possession”.
    This relationship is even closer. Of this nation Isaiah records by Divine Inspiration, “For thy Maker is thine husband: the “I AM” Lord of hosts is His name”. (54:5) Jeremiah receives similar revelation when the “I AM” promises a New Covenant to be made with this people but “not according to The Covenant that I made with their fathers . . . which My Covenant they brake . . . although I was an husband unto them saith the ‘I AM’.” (31:31-32) Jeremiah also records the “I AM”‘S plea that His nation will repent of her backsliding ways “for I am married unto you”. (3:14)
    The “I AM” God is therefore by His Own revealing, the Husband of the nation Israel, and just as at human level a woman takes the name of and swears to obey her husband, so the “I AM” gave His Name to His chosen “Own possession” and expects His people to obey Him.
    The marriage ceremony took place at Sinai, when as we have seen, vows were exchanged between the “I AM” and the Israelites. The proposal of union is made by the “I AM”. “If ye will . . . ye shall be unto Me . . .” (Ex. 19:5-6) The prospective Bride accepts, and vows, “all that the ‘I AM’ hath spoken we will do”. (Ex. 19:8) The engagement is sealed when on the third day following, “Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God: and they stood at the nether part of the mount. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the ‘I AM’ descended upon it in fire”. (Ex. 19:17-18)
    The solemnisation of the marriage then follows. Moses, minister of The Covenant, recites the terms of the marriage contract: the Bride accepts and so the contract is signed and sealed, becoming binding on the “I AM” and His “peculiar treasure”. (Ex. 24:1-8)
    Note the order and arrangement of this service. Moses “builded an altar” and placed by it “twelve pillars according to the twelve tribes of Israel”. Burnt-offerings and peace-offerings were made “unto the LORD” and the blood sprinkled on the altar; on the “Book of The Covenant” and on the people. Then followed the binding blessing. “Behold, the Blood of The Covenant which the “I AM” hath made with you concerning all these words”.
    The wife of YHWH (“I AM”) was called to an exacting life. By her obedience to, and co-operation with her Husband, she was to show mankind His Very Nature. By her faithful carrying out of His Will, “all families of the earth” would learn to love and be obedient to Him, and receive the blessing of His Peace and Salvation.
    As the human husband and wife have a home, a place of residence uniquely their own, so, too, we find the “I AM” had chosen a home for Himself and Wife. The “I AM” God, “possessor of heaven and earth”, (Gen. 14:19) staked a small piece of Earth for His Homeland, and gave it, a wedding present to His Wife.
    The promise of the gift was first told to Abraham, forefather of the Wife, “the LORD made a Covenant with Abraham saying, unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates”. (Gen. 15:18) Many times in Scripture we find this area called by the Lord “My land”. Take just two examples. Solomon is warned unless he and the nation remain faithful in all things, “I will pluck them up by the roots out of My land which I have given them”. (2 Chron. 7:20) And where we have the confederacy headed by Gog addressed by the Lord “in the latter days I will bring you against My land . . . the land of Israel”. (Ezek. 38:16-18)
    In that selected land, we are told the “I AM” placed His Name on a city, and within that city allowed His House to be built. In Deuteronomy 12 we read of Moses re-telling the Israelites some of the conditions of their entry and occupancy of the land of Canaan, in particular of a place in which “the ‘I AM’ God shall choose out of all your tribes to put His name there, even unto His habitation shall ye seek”. (v. 5) And the place? “I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name might be there”. (2 Chron. 6:6)
    Now “Salem” is an old name for Jerusalem, and means “Peace”. Psalm 76:2 reads, “In Salem also is His Tabernacle”, and Jerusalem means “founded peaceful”. The only true PEACE is “the peace of God which passeth all understanding”, (Phil. 4:7) and the only means of laying hold of that peace is through the “Prince of Peace”, the Son. (Isa. 9:6) Truly then, the “I AM” has “put His name there” just as He gave His Name to His Wife ¬ Israel. What are we told of His House built in this chosen city, Jerusalem?
    It was the wish of David, when at last resting after consolidating the nation, that he should build a permanent house to contain The Ark of The Covenant. When he asked Nathan the prophet the “I AM”‘s decision on this desire, he was told, not he, but to his son had been appointed that honour. (2 Sam. 7:1-13) “He shall build an house for My name”.
    In due course Solomon causes the magnificent Temple to be built in Jerusalem. The Ark is brought in, and when “the glory of the ‘I AM’ had filled the House of the ‘I AM’”, Solomon delivered a prayer of dedication and a blessing, showing his profound insight into things Spiritual. Sacrificial offerings followed, and the whole nation rejoiced greatly. The “I AM” then appeared again to Solomon saying. “I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before Me: I have hallowed this house which thou hast built, to put My name there for ever: and Mine eyes and Mine heart shall be there perpetually”. (1 kings 8 to 9:3)
    Having noted that the twelve tribes descended from Jacob-Israel were chosen by the “I AM” as His Own Possession ¬ a “peculiar treasure” ¬ and His relationship to them to be analogous to human courtship, marriage and setting up of a home, we can now take this a little further.
    From the first to last book of the Bible we read times without number the phrase, “the children of Israel”. Why this, and not Israelites denoting the persons of the nation of Israel?
    As the “I AM” chose to be in relationship as Husband to the nation, and called her His Wife, He is in relationship to the individual members of the nation as a father (Matt. 23:9).
    Through Jeremiah the “I AM” makes this claim. “I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn”. (31:9) And in Hosea 2:1-2 we read of the “I AM” proclaiming to the sinning men and women of the nation, “Plead with your mother: plead: for she is not My wife, neither am I her husband”. There we see the family unit. Father; Mother; children (“honour thy Father and thy Mother”, is a Commandment).
    The ultimate object of the nation was to lead all people to the knowledge of the “I AM” and His Salvation. It is the individual within the mechanics of governing them, that must learn of the “I AM”. The Son, in His Incarnation, taught of the Fatherhood of God. By His Death and Resurrection the Son gifted to all believers the relationship of sons-by-adoption through the indwelling Holy Spirit. (Gal. 4:4-7) Therefore the call throughout is to the “children of Israel” ¬ the individual souls forming the nation. It is the action of the “children” not an abstract “nation” which counts, and at the last, makes a nation exist and function.
    What manner of individuals, “children”, would this marriage of the “I AM” and His Spouse produce? Basic belief for each life would be the Ten Commandments. With each life God-centred, all His Commands would be the desire of the person, their joy and great reward. As the “I AM” God was Father to His creatures, the Source of their knowledge and understanding, so in the human father was vested the obligation to instruct and teach of the Heavenly Father.
    How then does all this relate to human marriage?
    1. The Christian man and woman, committed heart and soul to accepting the Sacrificial Blood of the Son, are by faith part of His Body, and in hope and assurance they look to the fruit of their faith ¬ life eternal.
    2. a) The Bride in the act of physical union encompasses her husband, and his is the power which enlivens, to bring life within her.
    b) The Divine Bridegroom in union with His Bride, is in her midst, and is the Power lighting her to give eternal Life to the lives within her.
    3. a) In the act of physical union the bride is submissive; she is the receiver, so that the two bodies are again “one flesh”. Thus we are brought back to the creation of the man and woman, when she “was taken out of man”. (Gen. 2:23)
    b) The Divine Bride submitted to the Divine Law of the Redemption in the Son, and received Him as Bridegroom into herself. As the Son was the creator of all things, “without him was not any thing made that was made”, (John 1:3) it can be said the Bride, “was taken out of Man” ¬ the Son ¬ and in marriage they were again as “one flesh” ¬ one body.
    4. a) Children of a human marriage are commanded to “replenish the earth” and be obedient to father and mother.
    b) Likewise the Divine Marriage was to produce “fruit unto God” (Rom. 7:4) and in obedience bring many to know and receive Salvation, by honouring their Father (God) and Mother (Israel).
    5. a) Headship of the human family was in the husband. Wife and children were provided by him with home, sustenance, education, etc. His was the authority and ownership ¬ also the responsibility.
    b) Is not this the picture of the Divine Family unit? God the Father provider of all things requisite for very existence, so that all life is dependent on Him.
    The God-fearing human family by their acceptance of Divine Law, Spiritual and Temporal, are gifted with the indwelling Holy Spirit, and are by faith at-one through the Son. The Son being “one with the Father” believing humanity by faith is even thus at-one with the Father.
    We see then the Divinely ordained marriage of the human man and woman has within it the symbolism of their own re-union to “one flesh” and the great mystery of their re-union with Father.
    It is our Lord’s command that “what therefore God hath joined together let not man put asunder”. (Matthew 19:6) Therefore who dare break the bonds of a truly God-based marriage? Surely the fault is not in the marriage bond ¬ “till death us do part”, ¬ but by tying in Divine Bondage persons who are ignorant of the meaning of the plight they troth, before a God they know not.

  92. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

  93. On the breaking of Charismatic habits, I just want to say, “THANK YOU.”

    I am in no church now. I now meet with mature believers that are filled with The Spirit in 2 different houses. I just cannot take manipulation any more or judgment of the inside by the exuberance or the lack of it as revealing what is on the inside. I do not believe that true worship can be pushed inside us. It needs to come from deep within our spirit, not by some person trying to orchestrate it. My heart aches to be with my friends in the church I had been in and totally dedicated myself to for the Kingdom’s sake for 10 years, but the beginning of true worship in spirit and truth is hammered into us at us every service and the insinuation made that something is lacking if we do not follow the leader. I love the people soooo much and the pastor and his family to a fault, but this is so wrong, and if mentioned, it is alluded to that the worshiper must have a problem, not the director/pastor (God bless him). :’(

  94. Individualism is not always a choice, but sometimes a matter of circumstances. In my area – out of 27 churches, there is not one pastor who is Spirit-led, but all operate from a carnal mind. I do believe the body of Christ is invisible and can operate from outside the four walls of a church, when all are led of the Spirit… The few close relationships I have in my life – God has orchestrated….

  95. Davod Ortega May 16th 2013

    In the postChristian era we live in, the dominant worldview is humanism–the elevation of Man as the measure of all things. The Self is the final arbiter of truth. We breath individualism and we swim in individualism. As a biblical counselor I am aware that one of the major ways this humanistic worldview infiltrates and infects the Church is through the merging of psychological counseling/psychotherapy with the Christian faith. We need to be more discerning when integrating a humanistic psychology with biblical faith. When we do this poorly, we end up supporting self-oriented change that does not glorify God.

  96. hi

  97. Andrew,
    I agree that the churches are wandering in the wilderness.
    The reason is, God is moving forward in the spiritual experiences of the final three feasts of the Lord.
    The feast at issue is The Day of Atonement, which is observed after the festival of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit today is moving past Pentecost to Trumpets and the Day of Atonement.
    As was true under Levitical Law, an individual was guilty when he sinned, but was not required to take action to make an atonement until he became aware of the sin.
    So it is today. The Spirit of God is making us aware of our sins. We are to confess, denounce, and turn away from them with full heartfelt vigor.
    This is the spiritual fulfillment of the Day of Atonement. We all have sinned, but now God is requiring us to take the action He has set forth in His Word. (Romans 8:13; I John 1:9)
    The churches will remain in the doldrums until the saints confess and turn away from their sins.
    Love and blessings,
    Pastor Thompson

  98. I’m surprised that you posted this article. Happy- but surprised. Mind you, I have had negative email/online exchanges with the moderator of this site 3 or 4 times before so I don’t even come here anymore. But- it’s all good. Instead of saying “Well, he’s not a Christian!” I say to myself “We can’t agree on everything. He does things differently and thinks differently. I think he’s wrong- but it doesn’t matter what I think. He says he loves Jesus and lives that way- so I accept him regardless”. As a born-again Catholic Charismatic for 45 years I wish Protestants would have the same attitude. I will be in fellowship with protestant evangelicals and as soon as they find out I am Catholic Charismatic fire come out of their eyes and they tell me I worship Mary. I’ve never prayed to Mary in my life. They just keep repeating wrong information put out by Jack Chick. Oh well. I’m sure there are many on here that are still anti-Catholic so I will shut up. Jesus Christ is God. He is the only way to salvation. A sinner’s prayer or rituals wont save you. Lay down your life and die on the cross and follow Him.

  99. Its like you read my mind! You seem to understand
    so much about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I feel that you simply could do with some percent to pressure the message house a little bit, but
    instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
    I’ll certainly be back.

  100. I believe god s looking for people who will seek him ,intimacy is the key 1 Thessalonians 5:17 pray always and verse 18 says for this pleases god, Andrew storm is accurate, and ,he is because he asked god, the Bible says my people have not cause they ask not ,praise god for web sites like this who aren’t afraid of offending people Jesus offended people all the time.

    Thank you for the article that the church needs a massive transformation and a old but new model needs to be put in place. the three things you have mentions are all to evident, Money, Power and man Control. I have for years stood in my area against bad and sometimes evil practices within the church and in so doing received bad rapport, alienation and isolation, but so what, the Lord Jesus went through the same forms of persecution, even death on the cross. I am glad that other are also being raised by Almighty God to bring back the church to real truth, holiness and the true will of God by the Holy Spirit and will stand in His eternal truths and holy word. Well done, may Jesus give you added wisdom and strength and may your words not fall to the ground but bring about change and life in Jesus Christ. You are not alone as Jesus is raising many thousands of such people across the globe as true spiritual watchmen who will move in truth and in divine power. As long as you remain in Him, I stand with you and am glad to call you my brother in Christ. Be bold and strong in wisdom and the truth of Jesus Christ.

  106. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

  107. What’s up, always i used to check blog posts here early in the dawn, because i love to learn more and more.

  108. I every time spent my half an hour to read
    this website’s articles daily along with a cup of coffee.

  109. scottburke Jul 26th 2013

    Andrew,
    Thanks for your letters, I appreciate your passion for Christ. Just a note: the last letter you sent out referred to a Pastor Jeremiah Steepek. I did some checking and from what I can find, this is an Urban Myth. As wonderful as this story is and as much as I think it is needed, it does not appear to have happened. Just a heads up.

  110. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on
    the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Great work!

  111. Hi there i am kavin, its my first time to commenting anywhere, when i read
    this piece of writing i thought i could also make comment
    due to this sensible article.

  112. It is the best time to make a few plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this put up and if I may just I desire to counsel you some attention-grabbing issues or suggestions. Maybe you could write next articles relating to this article. I desire to learn more things approximately it!

  113. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  114. Sunflower Sep 13th 2013

    Oh how I have recently pondered this increasing gulf between my soul and the world. It is indeed lonely in the earthly terms but not in spiritual terms. I have wondered if I am crazy because increasingly I find less and less fruitful communion between myself and even “Christians.” Most of them are churched and in that “churched” place. Direct time between myself and God is my comfort spot! I used to spend hours on the phone “talking about the Lord” but even that began to seem very wrong ….just like I would not talk for hours about my personal life with my husband. It has come to seem to private too put out there. I would certainly share the gospel always, but discuss every thing the Lord says or shows me, no. Does anyone relate to that?

  115. J. Allen Sep 17th 2013

    The show must go on, these types of churches must be exposed;

    Matthew 21:13 (AMP) 13 He said to them, The Scripture says, My house shall be called a house of prayer; but you have made it a den of robbers.

    1 Timothy 3:2 Amplified Bible (AMP)2 Now a bishop (superintendent, overseer) must give no grounds for accusation but must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, circumspect and temperate and self-controlled; [he must be] sensible and well behaved and dignified and lead an orderly (disciplined) life; [he must be] hospitable [showing love for and being a friend to the believers, especially strangers or foreigners, and be] a capable and qualified teacher,

    1 Corinthians 5:1-6 (NKJV) Immorality Defiles the Church
    5 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named[a] among the Gentiles—that a man has his father’s wife! 2 And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed. 4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.[b]
    6 Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?

    1 Timothy 6:8-10 (NKJV)
    8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    I hope their congregation has open their eyes, because sin brings for death, and God did not intend for the church tithes and offerings be used to make theses pastors millionaires.

  116. Paul does not say a person cannot be rich in this life, only that it is difficult in his letter to Timothy saying that such must be willing to communicate financially. Such folks are actually needed although I would quickly say that that is not the main need in the Body of Christ.

    The MOST IMPORTANT injunction Paul said to say to rich folks thought is that they be not high minded. In other words avoid PRIDE. but isn’t pride the worst thing in any of us anyway? Yes it is.

  117. Could you rell me what a hodini spirit is thanks mary

  118. Laura Oct 1st 2013

    Thank you again Andrew for this ministry & the Friday call.

    I read D Wilkersons devotional & fully agree. I left his ministry for a while because of the starkness. The statement says God will forsake us if we forsake Him. How if a Christian truly does not see they are forsaking God can such a merciful God forsake His children?…even if they are blind to forsaking Him?

    Dying to flesh,soul, self in the west is hard but I know it s the only way to true discernment & fellowship with Him. If that’s my heart desire even though I’m forsaking Him will He still condemn & cast me off as it seems I am by the world? It does not seem to be the merciful One I see in scripture no matter how much torment.

    The One Huge Lie
    by John Anderson
    Commenting on this article :I think we forget time, how long was the first couple in the garden, next we forget access, how often did the serpent have access to Eve. I guess it really does not matter to some degree. What we do see played out here is really basic stuff. The enemy does and will always exploit the “self” in mankind. Only after satan had worked his way into Eve s mind was the serpent positioned to strike and cause such damage. The damage was done and the sin committed long before any real outward appearance happened by her directly. The same is true with Adam, in his heart he was so knit in his heart to Eve that he became a willing participant. The devil here had to have access either by location or observation of this couple and no doubt used some of the same arguments on mankind that he used to make many of the angels fall. In the end all perversion generally starts with the self in mankind. The very fact that Eve even granted an audience to the serpent and willingly looked upon something that her heart had no doubt already lusted after is telling.

  121. hello – great article from J Lee Grady… one small thing… I AM against cool music and coffee bars….! Where is God in this ?! I’m not trying to be legalistic, but come on folks; next thing you know, our pews will be replaced with couches… I cannot find a good church in my county of 27 churches or in the next county where there may be good preaching, but they have a bowl of ear plugs at the door – because their music is so LOUD and no one catches on to how fleshly and demonic it is…. Where are Pastors who have a walk with God and have His heart in all things…. The darkness of this world has crept in to the churches, and so many are asleep…. Breaks my heart…. Lindie in Montana

  122. Daryl Miller Oct 25th 2013

    Several years ago (20ish) it was reported that John McCarthur s’ wife was filled with the Holy Spirit and that with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Maybe what he is really expressing is something in his heart a bit closer to home?

  123. Jeanne Oct 30th 2013

    We have already left the neo-evangelicals…actually we have left the main stream churches…We are meeting at home and reading the Word and praying…witnessing where we can here at our retirement place.

  124. Apostle: (Sent On) For a local house church to be healthy it needs the ministry of all 5 Offices. Eph.4:1-16. For these offices to exist the local church must confirm those who the Holy Spirit has called for their office to be effective. The apostle has the blue prints, the prophet is the building inspector, the evangelist gathers the building materials, the pastor protect those materials and the teacher cuts those living stones into the needed shapes. Another concept is a silk glove with five fingers that the Holy Spirit wants to place HIS hand to heal our sick world. HE needs a place for all 5 fingers of HIS hand. More on this: http://www.Trinity-Aloha.org. Blessings, Ken Smith< (We are deeply in need of these New Testament Servant Elders in Consensual Unity under the direction of the Holy Spirit to help guide HIS Church) There is but one Church of Jesus Christ and all who LOVE & OBEY our KING JESUS are members.

  125. You are right on target with your 5 point response. I am not a part of your movement but have heard enough evidence that God is using all of the gifts today as HE wills and not as we think he ought to do. Thank you for your response. I received it from our common friend in global evangelism, George Verwer.

  126. Almost all sports watches get by using waterresistant capabilities to include in addition to it comfort and ease in addition to usability..

  127. I couldn’t agree more.On presenting my own programme for Revelation TV I found that peopl wanted a direct message dealing with todays sitautions and based on Scripture.
    Sin Repentance and New Birth has been my message for over 40 years of preaching but as yet it is still not well received.I believe we should increase our efforts to preach this message.In addition all out activities including funding should be an open book nothing less will do,I will be happt to send you a CD Blessings

  129. Andrew Dec 26th 2013

    Andrew I just finished reading your book “The Coming Great Reformation”. I could hardly put it down. Much of what you wrote confirmed things I have been thinking and feeling for years. I felt so lost and alone among other Christians. I have been tried by fire in preparation of God’s will for me.
    This has been a true answer to my prayers, and since reading it, my prayer quantity and quality has increased. Along with my eagerness toward repentance and removing strongholds. I will put what I have read to the test.
    Do we have other friends in Washington State USA? It would be nice to have some encouragement.
    Thank you and your crew for all that you do.

  130. Where is the power of God in manifestation and demonstration among the Saints and preachers of God who has the faith and anointing to pray against demonic strongholds the ones that we have come across seem to be more afraid to pray against these forces of darkness.. My husband and I are ministers of the gospel of Christ we are under heavy satanic demonic attacks from neighbors who are fighting against us because of our race and because we are Christians the old man Richard 74 years old has harassed us and chased after us many times even to the point of spraying water on us and cursing us horrible names and has done more evil things against us now he has committed a crime against us that we are facing a Court trial he has a court order to not contact us or harass us but he rents the house next door 8 ft from our home we are driven from our living and dinning area daily for almost 3 years because these demon possessed man comes out day and night and slams 60 gallon garbage containers against our fence we have called police several times when they come this demonic man puts on a sorrowful face and denies what he is doing to us and each time the police do nothing they become mesmerized by this wicked man who boast loud that satan is his friend and master he screams out blaspheme words against God using his name in vain is his daily words we are forced to hear these vile words and other vile words that come into our house because this man stands on the side of his house yelling loud it comes directly into our house we cannot enjoy coming out to our yard to work, to work or on our deck to sit this man comes out and does more evil against us that we are forced to come inside. He has robbed us of our peace, rest and our right to enjoy our home He deliberately goes through our neighborhood and spew lies against us to people to make them think we are harassing him and do evil towards him in his successful attempts to gain favor in their eyes to cause them to fight against us and attack us now other neighbors are coming against us without cause we have done no evil against this man or these neighbors Leonard & Tamera Velasquez, Dorothy, Mary & Dave and others these people rather listen to this demon possessed man than to believe the truth .As Christians we have asked for prayer that God destroy these strongholds coming against us because God is working and moving in a mighty way through the ministry that he has called us to do. When we call or write for prayer the answers we get are this” We pray for the demon possessed man to be saved and the other neighbors who attack us to be saved and this is the end. Wait a minute! Did they not hear or understand that this is a prayer to join with us in agreement that God breaks these demonic attacks against us and what about what we are going through dont we as God’s ministers of the gospel have a right to live in our home in peace for once? their prayers are always one sided where are the men/woman of God who know how to pray with us against these strongholds of the devil to be stopped. We of course do pray for this man and these neighbors salvation but who knows when or if they ever will get saved but until that time what about us we are asking for deliverance these attacks has gone on far too long. We ask that you pray for us and also That Michael M will sell the property and Mary & Dave will sell the house These troublemakers will move they are miserable living in the neighborhood that we have lived in and owned our home about 25 years they are renters for less then 3 and less than 7 years our color will not change we are created by God since these neighbors hate our race and are miserable every time they see myself and husband going or coming home it’s time that they move out so please pray that God remove them from our neighborhood even this month would not be too soon we are going into a new year with the same old problems and attacks Pray that God send in Godly Christians and decent new home owners who are not racist. Anyone is welcomed to pray for us who believe in the power of deliverance and our breakthrough

  131. Matthew 24, a letter to a friend
    by Jonathan Welton
    My response to a question about Matthew 24 I received recently:
    Hey buddy,
    Thank you for taking the time to respectfully write and explain your position. I am very familiar with your opinion as an AG Pre-Tribber, and you have stated it quite succinctly. Personally, I hold to a Historical-Contextual Hermeneutic, which means that I cannot make a passage mean something that it could have never meant to the original hearers. Thus I cannot take the Eagle in Scripture and say it means America, because that has no Hermeneutical justification, how do I know that I am interpreting that correctly? Couldn’t there be another nation with an Eagle as its symbol another 500 years from now? Anyway, I use the same hermeneutics that are taught by Dr. Gordon Fee, the most respected Theologian of the AG movement.
    When I read Matthew 24 in its Historical-Cultural context, I start further back in Matthew, for example the parables of 21:33-46, and 22:7 speak of an imminent destruction (70AD I believe). Then the entire chapter 23 is Jesus reaming out the Pharisees, ending with 23:33-36 and the declaration that judgment was about to fall upon them within a generation (which historically and contextually would have meant 40 years). Then chapter 24 begins, in context, with the disciples asking about the Temple, which Jesus declares will be destroyed, then the disciples ask their follow up questions regarding the declarations they have just heard.
    For the futurist, typically the discussion begins at 24:3 with no context, as if Jesus is sitting around with the guys and they are asking Him about the end of the world. But the truth is that the disciples have just heard Matthew 21-23 communicated and they would have been traumatized and trying to wrap their heads around what Jesus just declared.
    Also the KJV has mistranslated the Greek word Aion in Matthew 24:3 as “world” when other translations have rightly translated it as “age.” Which means that the disciples were asking about when the end of the age was going to be, not the end of the world. Also they ask about His coming [in judgment] which couldn’t have been them asking about His second coming because they didn’t even know about His death and resurrection yet!
    The end of the age was the end of the Temple age and the system of the Pharisees, which Jesus just judged.
    This is historically and contextually why I have arrived at my position and I feel that it is unnecessary to interpret Israel as a fig tree (which normally their symbol is the olive tree, so why would Jesus be saying that here?) in this passage to make 1948 relevant to a discussion about the endtimes that Jesus wasn’t having with His disciples in Matthew 24. To interpret 1948 as eschatological is circumstantial, not hermeneutical.
    If you would like to understand Matthew 24 from my point of view, the class has been put on youtube for the public. Also as I studied Matthew 24, I discovered that, throughout church history, most Christians believed that the whole chapter of Matthew 24 occurred at the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD. In fact, many of the well-known Church leaders have taught this. Here are quotations from a few:
    All this occurred in this manner in the second year of the reign of Vespasian [A.D. 70], according to the predictions of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. —Eusebius
    Thousands and thousands of men of every age who together with women and children perished by the sword, by starvation, and by countless other forms of death…all this anyone who wishes can gather in precise detail from the pages of Josephus’s history. I must draw particular attention to his statement that the people who flocked together from all Judaea at the time of the Passover Feast and—to use his own words—were shut up in Jerusalem as if in a prison, totaled nearly three million. — Eusebius
    This was most punctually fulfilled: for after the temple was burned, Titus the Roman general, ordered the very foundations of it to be dug up; after which the ground on which it stood was ploughed by Turnus Rufus…this generation of men living shall not pass till all these things be done—The expression implies that a great part of that generation would be passed away, but not the whole. Just so it was; for the city and temple were destroyed thirty-nine or forty years after. —John Wesley
    You will preach everywhere …. Then he added, “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and the end will come.” The sign of this final end time will be the downfall of Jerusalem. —John Chrysostom
    There was a sufficient interval for the full proclamation of the gospel by the apostles and evangelists of the early Christian Church, and for the gathering of those who recognized the crucified Christ as the true Messiah. Then came the awful end which the Saviour foresaw and foretold, and the prospect of which wrung from His lips and heart the sorrowful lament that followed his prophecy of the doom awaiting his guilty capital.
    The destruction of Jerusalem was more terrible than anything that the world has ever witnessed, either before or since. Even Titus seemed to see in his cruel work the hand of an avenging God. Truly, the blood of the martyrs slain in Jerusalem was amply avenged when the whole city became a veritable Aceldama, or field of blood. —Charles Spurgeon
    Hence it appears plain enough that the foregoing verses [Matt. 24:1-34] are not to be understood of the last judgment, but, as we said, of the destruction of Jerusalem. There were some among the disciples (particularly John), who lived to see these things come to pass. (Endnote: John Lightfoot, A Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Hebraica, 4 vols. (Oxford University Press, [1658-1674] 1859), 2:320.)-John Lightfoot 1658)
    And Verily I say unto you; and urge you to observe it, as absolutely necessary in order to understand what I have been saying, That this generation of men now living shall not pass away until all these things be fulfilled, for what I have foretold concerning the destruction of the Jewish state is so near at hand, that some of you shall live to see it accomplished with a dreadful exactness.
    -Phillip Doddridge (1750) (Endnote: Phillip Doddridge, The Family Expositor; or, A Paraphrase and Version of the New Testament; with Critical Notes, and a Practical Improvement of each Section, 6 vols. (Charlestown, Mass.: Ethridge and Company, 1807), 1:377.)
    It is to me a wonder how any man can refer part of the foregoing discourse [Matt. 24] to the destruction of Jerusalem, and part to the end of the world, or any other distant event, when it is said so positively here in the conclusion, All these things shall be fulfilled in this generation. -Thomas Newton (1755) (Endnote: Thomas Newton, Dissertations on the Prophecies, Which Have Remarkably Been Fulfilled, and at This Time Are Fulfilling in the World (London: J. F. Dove, 1754), 377.)
    Christ informs them, that before a single generation shall have been completed, they will learn by experience the truth of what he has said. For within fifty years the city was destroyed and the temple was razed, the whole country was reduced to a hideous desert. —John Calvin
    “If Jesus and the early church used the relevant language in the same way as their contemporaries, it is highly unlikely that they would have been referring to the actual end of the world, and highly likely that they would have been referring to events within space-time history which they interpreted as the coming of the kingdom.”– NT Wright (Jesus and the Victory of God, p. 321)“In this discourse [Matthew 24] Jesus predicts the destruction of the temple, the destruction of Jerusalem, and the dispersion of the Jews, all of which took place in A.D. 70. The uncanny accuracy of these predictions is embarrassing to higher critics…” -RC Sproul

    Mr Tozers commentaries have always been an inspiration
    Few had and have that faith he exuded.
    Today troubling times with church has left me saddened of their seemingly unbelief in the command to raise the dead heal the sick set the captives free and to go preach the good news.
    Instead the worship of the fat red man at Christmas the Easter bunny and eggs the days said to be of the crucifixion and resurection are wrong
    The change of the sabbath day the list it seems endless mindless nonsence

    Hi Andrew, long time no see. Hope all is well with you and your family. I think I will simply say one thing about you making a movie. God’s Word says plainly that “God’s Word will NOT return void.” Go for it my friend, go for it with all that’s within you. If God told you to do this, then DO IT, BROTHER!!! I send you greetings and love where we now live. Back in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The hit record making capital of the world. Blessings to you and yours, now and forevermore.

  137. Carl Emerson Jun 18th 2014

    Andrew,

    The Lord has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise…

    You may enjoy this quote from an unlikely quarter…

    Mother Teresa Said

    If you are kind, people will accuse you of selfish motives;
    Be kind anyway.

    If you are successful, you will win both false friends and true enemies;
    Succeed anyway.

    What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight;
    Build anyway.

    The good you do today most people will forget;
    Do good anyway.

    Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough;
    Give your best anyway.

    In the final analysis it is between you and God.
    It never was between you and them anyway.

    Blessings and Shalom…

    Carl Emerson.

  138. Can’t remember my password. Comment on Iraq prophecy.
    I didn’t see anything special about the prophecy. America is not a Christian Nation. It is the 7th head, secular power, the 7th in the 7 cycle heads Revelation 17. God has reserved this power to refine the last generation of God’s people into a holy people. Many mix the genders in prophecy (he=she) and (she=he). God clearly keeps the genders entities separate in prophecy. America is a secular head (king)he, it does not operate as a religious theocracy(she). The sin of Israel was they wanted to look like secular king power, not a religious power operating as a theocracy under God.

  139. I love being challenged on this site!
    Cindy

  140. Right here is the perfect website for anyone who really wants to find
    out about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with
    you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic which has been written about for years.
    Wonderful stuff, just great!

  141. Allan Rowley Aug 3rd 2014

    Great article, people hate the truth.
    We need to worship the Hebrew God not the Greek gods of Christianity.
    Most Christian churches are against Israel = they are goats (Matt 25).
    Dispensationalism and pre trib rapture are all anti Israel. Bottom line is, the church preaches pre trib, the church is out and God beats up the Jews! All a Jesuit lie from the 13th century but all luke warm believers (Christians) suck into this lie and live a life of sin.

    Church or Christianity is about money and making heaps of money. It is of the devil and is religion. Constantine changed all the Bible names back in 325AD.
    Do your own research, do not trust any preacher for your salvation.
    Read John 9:31; 14:15; 21;23; 15:10; 14. “If you love Yahushua (Jesus) then keep My commandments, Jn 14:15.
    The Christian church breaks the 1st 4 commandments! Do not expect Yahushua to love you if you live in sin.
    Wake up believers before your destiny swallows you.
    Check Messianic sites for the truth, which sets you free (Jn 8:31).
    Blessings on all who seek the Truth.

  142. Preacher Aug 15th 2014

    Hi Andrew.
    Always look forward to your revival postings.
    I find Tozer is an inspiration, like many of the revivalist preachers of earlier times.
    To often now the Gospel is not mentioned & Church becomes just entertainment. With the rise of Islam, it’s time to polish up & put on the Spiritual armour for all of the Lord’s followers if we want to be part of true revival.

  143. It’s truly a great and helpfuil piece of info. I’m happy thast youu simply shared this helpful info with us.
    Please stay us up to date lkke this. Thanks for sharing.
