Our Lord will guide us!


A pillar of cloud to guide us!

A pillar of cloud to guide us!

As I watched the horror unfolding at the school in Connecticut, yesterday, I was reminded that our Lord holds this world in His hands. He told us that it would continue to become darker as the light would get brighter.

What does this mean? Well, if one is now forced to acknowledge evil in this world, then we must also understand that there is a force of good. A supreme being which controls this universe. The eyes of those in darkness are now opened to the Truth.

In the face of tragedy, those long-held beliefs of us becoming our own god, that truth is relative to each person.How can this be, when our own Lord tells us, “The heart of man is evil, who can know it?” We see that this cannot be. How can all of us live according to our own dictates? As this would mean that this horrible act of murder, is fine, if this was this man’s truth.

I was reading about Winston Churchill’s beliefs being challenged, when he was in the midst of war. All the philosophical ideas, which he purported, now came into question. As he realized none of them held up when facing his enemies. He revisted the Christian ideals which his nanny had instilled in him. He stated that it isn’t when times are easy, that people ponder the question of eternity.

No, we must acknowledge that there is a moral code, programmed into each human being. We know that these acts are evil. Our Lord told us in His Word, that “His laws have been written upon every mans heart, so that we have no excuse when we stand before Him.” (Hebrews 8:10)

Truth is absolute. It is one of our Lord’s names. He told us that by this Truth, we would also be hated, by those who choose to continue in their ways. But this Truth guides us and protects us. We must understand that we are in a world full of evil. But if we look to Him, for guidance, He will always lead us. He loves us and desires us to “turn to Him in our time of trouble. And He shall deliver us.”

The god of this present age, has tried to push Him out of the picture. Saying as the serpent did, in the garden, “Did God really say that you shouldn’t eat of this tree?” Questioning God’s authority is the beginning of our downward spiral. As a nation founded on God’s Word, and as a world system. We cannot move forward without His lead.

On my trip to Israel, the Lord reminded me of this in a very profound picture. As we stood around the Menorah, in front of the Knesset, we began to pray. Suddenly, clouds appeared as pillars, above the Menorah. It was a most incredible sight and I was grateful that I caught it on my camera.

A reminder that, “He would guide us as a pillar of cloud by day, and fire by night.” Of course this was just a word picture, but I knew He had done this same thing for Moses and the Israelites. To give them a concrete picture of His presence. I have show these pictures to many people. I don’t need this reminder, as some people do. But the Lord wanted me to share this very powerful picture with others, so they know, He is always watching over us.

His desire is that we turn to Him, as children run to their father’s in times of distress. We need to go back to the foundation. The very beginning. Where things began to turn bad. As Nehemiah did, we must also recognize that it is only with our God, that we can and must rebuild.

If it were not for our Lord, no one would have been able to escape Egypt. It is for this reason, He told them to depend solely, on Him. For guidance and all their needs, while wandering. Yes, He delivered them from Egypt. A picture of our world in this day. But because of their stubbornness, He allowed them to wander. Even in the midst of their wandering, He taught them, that all of their provision comes from Him.

But we as people, like to repeat history. And it is; HIS story. He allows us each to go our own way. But in spite of this, He provides for us. Until we can come to the realization, that He is our Father. And like a Father, He doesn’t want us to turn to Him, as children who are caught doing wrong. Or to get something in return. But He wants us to turn to Him out of love and devotion. And as the Prodigal Son came running, He stands with His arms opened wide! Patiently waiting for us to realize that this world has nothing to offer us. He loves us. Stop running and turn to Him.

The Government Ponzi Scheme


His sadness is apparent

Yes, the statement does appear to be true doesn’t it? And this is a man who certainly can speak from experience. No, he’s not someone who you can point your finger at, as I had  federal attorney do to me a few years ago, and say, “are you taking medication?” As if I was the crazy one. He followed this satement with, “I don’t care about corruption.” Yes, and he is a federal attorney. I was incredulous, as to why he had chosen his profession. I had decided that our country was indeed, in a very sad state of affairs. With the more corruption that I had been uncovering the more bullying I was receiving from our, so-called, justice system.

 And he was implying that I didn’t have all of my faculties. So, I should be unbalanced for even beginning to suggest that our whole legal system is turning a blind eye to justice and doing such things. Well this attorney was throwing papers around and grandstanding in such a manner, that he was making ‘much ado about nothing,’ which made me think, he was a big part of the whole mess, which Bernie Madoff certainly has pointed out. I was still rather naive, I must admit, as I was beginning to realize that our whole country was in a mess.

As I saw that my own brother had been scammed and many other people with special needs, and the ponzi scheme involved with that would blow peoples minds, I was sick, about the whole thing. Social Insecurity, will absolutely collapse when you finally see what the government has been doing with these people. Parking their numbers and qualifying them for services, while the whole stinking mess is going unchecked. Oh yes, believe me, it goes all the way up the chain of command. And Bernie is correct. Everyone gets a free pass. He was just the one that was caught.Ahh, but look at the price paid. In the end, ask him now. Was it worth it?

Now, I see the way things are and the way things will be. I operate in a different world and I am not alarmed. I know my Lord and He will put an end to this mess. My special  brother is not upset. His life is happy and I don’t need riches and wealth to be happy. Look what happens to those who live this way. How can anyone be blessed to know they rob from the very least of these? My mother’s life has been wrought with pain and suffering and, yes, it probably could have been made easier if the hands of greed would not have touched her. If she would have been allowed to have the income to care for her son. But then, I would not have acquired the strength necessary to advocate for her and my brother and others like them either. The Lord has shown me that from my youth, I had a burning compassion within me for those who are suffering. Born of my own pain and suffering and my love for Him. He wanted to mold me into an image of His likeness. To have a heart like His own. And this could not happen unless I had suffered in similar circumstances as He had. But He had ‘suffered all things known to man, in order to learn obedience.” Yep, that’s an amazing set of scripture to me. Even my Lord, had to suffer to learn obedience, to our Father. His own pain and suffering, But He knew the suffering was meant to lead Him to one place and that was the cross. And He was perfect. I, am not. There are many times, I’m ready to march across the land and sea, to just slap someone! This is where I still have to be brought into submission.

This has been supernatural and it will come to an end one day. He has reminded me through it all that grace is the end result. I must learn this lesson over and over again. My anger at this injustice is tempered by grace. In the end I also am left with compassion for those who have done these things. I am always left pleading for them, as well. When I see that God is the God of second chances, I know He is going to allow us time.

I remembered a time about 20 years ago when my friends and I heard about the  airplane scheme.  Well of course, no one mentioned the word scheme anywhere in it at all. It all sounded great. In the end someone, somewhere got to be called Captain. All you had to do was invest $500. and eventually everyone would win. That’s all I recall. Oh, that, and that one of the flight attendant’s that my ex-husband and I went to see, kept her money in a book, that was cut out to hold her cash. All seeming to be very clandestine, kind of reminding me of the prohibition days. Hey, I feel like Bonnie and Clyde, I thought. This girl, had serious flirtations, with my ex, and I was trying to pay attention to how all of this was going to work. It seemed like her and her husband were trying to sell Amway, but sleezy. Ok, so, how long does it take to recoup our loss of $500? “Hmmm, I’m going to have to see, if I can get some investor’s first, I told her. I’ll work on the ‘friends and family plan.”

I started with my brother. He’s usually pretty inovative and the first to jump into any investment opportunity.  Just as I thought. “Hey, that sounds like a real money maker!” He’s working it out on paper and I can almost hear his wheels turning in his head. Believe me, he would have been alongside of Madoff if he would have asked. I tried to convince a friend at work and she brought up some thought provoking questions along with, “Is this legal?” I don’t know. I asked her this, and she said it is, but I’m not seeing anything illegal. She’s telling me it’s the same as multilevel marketing, but it’s money. Come on, it has to be illegal. We both backed out.

In the end, they all lost their money and we ended up hearing about these illegal operations all over the country. I called my brother one day about some kind of business and he said, “Hey, are you kidding? I still have my friends calling me Captain, from that last scheme!”We cracked up!

I laugh at the ease with which man can be be hoodwinked into such things without realizing it, however, if we are not careful it becomes a lifestyle and it has devastating results. I can look at people like Bernie Madoff and feel compassion. He was caught up. Look at the price he has paid. But he is not the only one and it is hypocritical for anyone to point the finger of shame at him. We have a system of greed set up to allow this. Look at what our nation has done to allow this. We feed greed. Our media fuels the stories of disastrous and broken lives as a result of overindulgence and addictions. We crave the next episode of some person self-destructing.

Instead of yanking the safety net, which should be the true course, and placing them in a facility for care and prayer, we allow them suicide by media. I have coined this phrase because to me it is the same thing as someone who wants to die by the hands of law enforcement or on YouTube, etc. These are celebrites, and they’re doing what they do best. In the end, it’s all a result of corruption and a desperate cry for help.

Now, my Lord has a Year of Jubilee, which He has given to His people. He will certainly restore everything. It is a clean slate. Everything which the enemy has taken, He will return. When you rend your hearts and turn back to Him.

When Shiloh comes, perfect government will be in place and there will be no more greed. No need to take what does not belong to another. No selfishness and pride. No pain and suffering.

In the Tent of Meeting, This is where it all began. He will restore Justice. Yes, He will balance the scales. He is about to bring Truth and Majesty to Victory!

You know  I always think of the Lord singing this to me in my spirit. Yea, I know, you think He just sings hymns, but He sure doesn’t…He is the ‘coat of many colors!

Don’t link my blogs to your obscenities!


Autumn trees without fruit (Jude)

Autumn trees without fruit (Jude)

Once again, my blog has been tagged to the most vile obscenities and all I can say is, the Lord is validating His truth. His Word. His Name. He is Almighty.

His name is above every name, or why would someone do something so vile as to even change my tags and suggest that my blog is linked to something so disgusting? Well, all I can say to that is what Paul himself said, “I shall be all things to all men in order to draw them to Christ!” Thank you wicked spirits. You shall be your own undoing. Have you still no understanding of what the Lord accomplished on the cross? I am and will always be amazed at the perfection of the plan and Satan will always be furious about the defeat that left him outsmarted until he is left with his wicked spirits thrown down, once again, at the final battle.

Thinking he had the final say with the betrayal, didn’t he think that Judas played right into his wicked hands and the hurt caused by Jesus sorrow made him and all of his wicked hosts shout with glee? As Christs own mother and Mary Magdalene watched with horror to see the his being beaten beyond human recognition, beard torn from his own face, (yes, that’s what it says folks) flesh torn from his back, just for our us, (Isaiah 54)  must have made the devil think he had indeed won the war.

To know that the very disciples that Jesus had chosen had all but run away in fear and everyone spit on him and the very ones, that he was dying for. Yet, they were only men.

His own mother had to watch and His father in heaven had to turn away from Him because He bore the sin of us all upon His shoulders. Even in this loneliest hour of abandonment, yet He prayed for our forgiveness. Amazing grace. How could He do it? How could we deserve it? But that’s just what grace is, isn’t it? Undeserving. We could not possibly earn it.

Now, the Lord uttered those words, “it is finished.” What did He mean?” Do you really think His death was final? Satan knew that it was not and he had truly been outsmarted. How could he possibly think that He could outsmart the one that had created Him?

Well the answer to that is very simple. Pride Satan made his announcement to ascend to the highest point in heaven, in Isaiah. You can see the five “I wills” if you choose to study in this book.Pride is blinding.

It has been debated, however, I am pretty convinced and when he made his final claim to fame, “I will ascend Higher than God,” that sealed the deal. He was thrown down, along with a third of the angels that follow foolish ways.

Study and show yourselves approved by God. We are entering perilous times. The ones that are linking their blogs and websites to mine are of the same wicked spirits. You don’t have to be a devil worshipper to rebel against God, just exerting your own will. This is what is stated in the Satanic Bible by Anton Levy, (“Do as thou wilt, is the whole of the law”) That is the same lie that Satan told Eve in the Garden of Eden.All he did was plant a seed of doubt about God’s word in Eves mind and she in turn planted this in Adams mind and they “exerted their will over God’s will,” thereby sinning against Him and breaking fellowship.

Now the Lord told us that a tree is known by it’s fruit and these trees that do not bear fruit are like autumn trees without fruit.(Jude4) As I stated before sitting in a church pew is meaningless and many people have never stepped foot in a church and have more fruit in accordance with God’s word than a person sitting in a pew every Sunday. You can see from the accounts of Christ in the temple that he had more problems with the Sadducees and Pharisees and their brand of legalism than from the sinners that he spent time with outside the temple.

However, this is not a license to sin. He merely was showing the contrast and that the people recognized their need of salvation. He spoke very clearly that it was the sick that needed the doctor and those that thought they were healthy, were indeed, the sickest of all, however, they rejected the only salvation that could be offered. Blind, poor, and sick. He was exasperated at their need for Him, yet they would not have Him.He looked over the nation of Israel and cried out, “how I have longed to gather you as a hen gather’s her chicks, but you will not have me.”

Now, the history is drawing closer to the return. The same things would be upon this earth. “Like the days of Noah.” Evil would be called good and good would be called evil. It’s happening. I’m longing for the righteous judge to make His appearance, but yet, I am also afraid, because so many are yet in the valley of decision. I know that he says, “The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”

Thank God that His unconditional love is also blind or mankind would be in some kind of a mess with no hope. But we do have hope and His name is Jesus Christ, “The Way, The Truth and The Life…now get ready to enter in…there isn’t much time!

Elijah’s Cup


Always waiting for my redeemer

Always waiting for my redeemer

Well the Passover is still being celebrated and next it will be the Easter celebration. But what was Passover? It is what my last post was about. It was a remembrance of the release from captivity for all the nation of Israel. God’s miraculous power and the way He designed the release was all a foreshadow of the coming messiah. Everything that the nation of Israel was told to do was to point to a future event.

Now we know that Jesus sat at a Passover when he had his “last supper.” This was all part of the plan and signs to those that had spiritual eyes and ears. The Jews that understood all the prophecies of the prophets could draw a picture and confirm that Christ was indeed who He claimed to be. The fulfillment of the prophecies all culminated with His hanging from the cross and the resurrection. However, how could so many Jews celebrated Passover and not understand that the messiah had indeed come and He is coming back again? Well for many Jews, just as many non-Jews, the Passover is just another ritual. They are remembering the past, however, have no idea that this pointed to Christ and His ministry on this earth. How can they know if they have not searched for the truth, like many of us? This is when you will see the many symbols within the Passover and why they were told to celebrate in this manner. God wants to reveal Himself to all of us that are seeking.

At the Seder table you can see the symbols of Christ everywhere. It is rich with the pictures of Him. The matzo, as I stated is unleavened bread and leaven was always referred to in a symbolic mannerm, as sin. This is why God foreknew that this would be Christ sitting at His own Seder before He was crucified and passing this. Breaking it into pieces to share with each of his disciples and saying, “Take eat, this is my body which is broken for you.” Now He told them as they ate, they should  no longer do this as a remembrance of their release from Egypt, but in remembrance of Him” This is why He also took the cup, which is standard with four glasses of wine. As the Jews had done year after year, they drank the cups in remembrance of the release from bondage as Hebrew slaves. Now Christ told them to drink of this cup, for this is now my blood shed for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” He told them that this would be the New Covenant that was being instituted by the shedding of His own blood. This was the lamb replacing the lamb that was sacrificed at twilight on Passover. When Christ was crucified it was at the exact time that the High Priest was making the animal sacrifice in the temple. This was all part of God’s plan.

When you look at the matzo, you will see that it is striped with lines. It also has pierce markings throughout. This is done with a tool to keep it from forming bubbles as it bakes. This also is a picture. The prophet Isaiah, lived approximately 500 years before Christ came to earth, However when you read Isaiah 53, you will read every prophetic sign that the prophet pointed out. This includes the stripes and piercings. ( Isaiah 53:5)”He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace and by His stripes we are healed.

We can see that the Lord knew that what He was telling the disciples was that up until this point you have celebrated Passover in remembrance of the past. That was just a picture. This is now the New Covenant and you will celebrate the Passover with new meaning. I AM the Passover.My blood being shed for you will cause the Angel of Death to pass over you upon death. You will not suffer the second death.

Now when you look at the lamb shank bone on the Passover table, you can remember what Christ has done. “He was led like a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.” (Isaiah 53:7)

The Jews were required to sacrifice the lamb, however the temple was destroyed in 70 AD and no sacrifice could be made anyway. But we know  this to be true because the sacrifice had already been made.

The cup is placed at the head of the table for Elijah. The prophet that would be the forerunner of the Messiah. He was the one who would announce His coming and did so through John the Baptist. This cup is always waiting for the prophet and the children go and check the door to see if the messiah has arrived.

The most amazing part of the Seder is the Afikoman. The matzo is broken into three pieces and hidden in the linen. The Afikoman is the middle piece. It is a picture of Christ wrapped in linen and hidden in the tomb.The father takes the middle piece, symbolic of Christ, the second part of the Godhead,(the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) and breaks it in two pieces. (His body broken for us.) The larger piece of the Afikoman is taken and hidden somewhere until later when the children will try and find it. “Seek the Lord while He may be found.” (Isaiah 55:6)At the end of dinner this piece is broken into smaller pieces and shared with every person at the table. Hence, Christ sharing himself with His followers. He did this symbolically when He passed the broken pieces around the table and told them to “take eat, this do in remembrance of Me.”

The third cup of wine at the Seder is the Cup of Redemption. It is the new covenant that Christ shared with His disciples. This He said, “is the new covenant made with my blood. As you drink, do this in remembrance of Me.”

The disciples had a keen understanding of what Christ was saying, because they knew that He was telling them that a new covenant was being established, however, they did not quite understand that He would have to literally die.

At the Seder the bitter herbs are eaten. This is symbolic of our own bitter lives before release from the captivity of sin. We also remember the suffering of the Messiah as we eat them. The horror of our own sin, placed upon Him. The Father could not even look upon Him, because He bore our sin as He hung from the cross. This is when Christ felt abandoned, “my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” What a desolate feeling of loneliness He must have suffered on our own behalf, at that moment.

The salt water that the herbs are dipped into, are symbolic of the tears of our own bondage to slavery and how much we suffered before finding our redemption in Christ.

A wonderful book for believers to use for a Seder is called,Celebrate the Feasts, by Martha Zimmerman. There are quite a few on the market now, but for a christian version, you may look in a Christian bookstore, or even a Messianic bookstore. The Passover is a rich experience and it is so incredible to finally receive a greater revelation of what our Lord actually did for us.

Now after you had experienced a Seder, you may say, as I did; “How is it the Jew does not see their Christ is the center of this whole dinner?” Well, because, they only have half of the story. Just as Gentile believers cling to their traditions and have no understanding of Old Testament practices and why these were so important. The Jew that has not come to know what Christ actually did accomplish, will not be able to see that He indeed fulfilled everything that their own prophets foretold. It is only as they learn of Christ that they can actually see He is the purpose of the Passover. So once again, I encourage Gentile believers to learn about the Lord’s festivals so that your eyes will also be opened and you can open the eyes of others.

What Is Truth?


Voice of Truth Casting Crownsobject>

The question that Pilate asked Jesus. I was asked this very same question when sitting before a man that claimed to be an atheist, but to me these people just want to be convinced of truth. He seemed very angry at my own circumstances and wondered why I wasn’t angry that the God that I believe in would allow me to suffer so much. “Oh, I know what your answer is going to be,” he told me. Well, of course no answer I give would be sufficient to someone that does not believe, however, I do love to tell people about my faith, because this is what this man seems to be fascinated by. As he pointed out that the Christians did not help the Jews during the holocaust, I pointed out that indeed, many did help the Jews. He agreed. When he pointed out that “those Christians claimed to believe in this or that, and it was contrary to biblical principal, I said, “that’s what they say.” “Yes, that is, but they’re Christians.” ‘No, they’re not Christian’s,”I told him. Everyone that claims to be a Christian is not a Christian, just by claiming to be one. “How about the KKK?” “Oh, they are the worst! Now, how can proponents of hatred,be considered, Christians at all?” Once again, he stated, “that’s what they say.” “Well, that’s what they say! Therein lies the problem and the reason that God gave us His word. It is the guidebook for living. Inspired by His spirit and it is His truth. Not subject to change. It isn’t a convenient truth and it isn’t relative to each person. It is absolute and unchanging. It is irrefutable. The Word of God is alive and it is the same yesterday, today and forever. It has the power to change men’s lives. So, I will stand on this word of truth, no matter, what THEY say. Because THEY are wrong, when compared to God. God never tells man kill men to hate. In fact, Jesus said, “love your enemies, bless those who curse you.” If there are those that are preaching a different message, it is not a Christian but another spirit at work. Remember the Lord spoke about one  who”masquerades as an angel of light in order to deceive.”  (2 Cor 11: 14)Yes, since the beginning in the book of Genesis, he was there in the form of a snake, and he will arrive again in Revelation again to make war with the Lord. Don’t be deceived, wherever there is truth, there is always the counterfeit.

According to the Word of God, the wheat and the tares grow together and the tares will not be torn up until the last day and thrown into the fire. Now if you study wheat and tares it is interesting. They look alike.Even their fruit, except when they are pulled up and thrown into the fire. I’ve always wondered at that. The Lord spoke about this. He said that you would know the true believer’s by “there fruit.” Meaning the fruit of their lives. Your lives would reflect the relationship you have with Him. This in turn would show what is happening around you in every aspect of your life. If your heart is false, He will know. He also said, “my sheep know me. They hear my voice and they follow me. Another voice they will not hear.” Only the true sheep of the Shepherd know what this means because they have heard the voice of the Holy Spirit and this comes with the regeneration by the rebirth. If this has not happened then it is because a person has not entered into a personal relationship with Christ.

This is what brings me to the most important part of this message and the answer to my post; What Is Truth? That really is, Who is truth? Jesus Christ said, I am the way, the truth and the Life, No One comes to the father, but through me.(John 14:6) If you want to know truth, it’s really very simple. You must know Christ. You must repent and ask Him to be your savior.
