‘A Voice in the Wilderness’
TAKE HEED- Here is one of God’s sign watchers, a watchman on the wall sounding his shofar.
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” (Isaiah 60:1-2)

Sunday morning, February 22, 2015, The Spirit of the Lord began to awaken me with some rather vivid dreams. In these dreams he said, there are mighty and upright men that are willing and able to remove the corruption that controls these United States. Implore them that they are to stand down, for this situation is of my design and for my purpose. Over the course of an hour, the same dream kept coming back to me. I finally figured out that the Holy Spirit was trying to tell me something so I got up and started typing.
May I be honest; I have some serious concerns about our government monitoring everything we do on the Internet. I believe that if I get to descriptive about what I saw men’s lives would be in danger, and I would have someone knocking on my door with evil intent. I wish…

WHEN DIVINITY BECAME HUMANITY, WHEN GOD BECAME MAN
The Gospel of John is the revelation of Jesus Christ as the SON OF GOD- who He is, what He did, and what He told us to do. This is Part 2 of the Gospel of John emphasizing WHEN DIVINITY BECAME HUMANITY, WHEN GOD BECAME MAN. In the Gospel of John alone, there are over 20 verses in which Jesus and others said to ‘BELIEVE IN HIM OR BELIEVE ON HIM’. Here Jesus, a young man in his thirties, had the temerity and audacity to tell every one in the world that we must BELIEVE IN OR ON HIM so we will not perish in hell and everlasting damnation, but have EVERLASTING LIFE. The simple reason why is because Jesus is telling us the truth; that ONLY HE AS GOD can save us and give us eternal life. JESUS is EMMANUEL- GOD WITH US,

Psalm 8 (KJV)
8 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
CREATION is no accident! It did not come about with a HUGE, BIG BANG! Like a ‘Kaboom!’ with the wave of the wand of a magician.
Our Omnipotent God ‘planned’ Creation. He is Almighty God of Order, as in the Genesis account of Creation. He saw that at the end of each day of His Creation ‘it was good‘. The heavenly bodies all move in their own unique order within the vast Universe which God maintains with absolute mathematical precision. The moons and planets, stars and planets orbit each other without colliding, each with their own rate of rotation and revolution.
Also, there are over 100 billion galaxies, and Earth exists in one of them which is called the Milky Way. According to astronomers, it is an ‘average size’ galaxy 120,000 light years across and contains 400 billion stars of various sizes and brightness.
While 8 major planets are known and studied in our galaxy, it is estimated to be as many as 2 billion planets in the our solar system. Earth is the largest of 4 terrestrials with Mercury, Venus, and Mars all which can be seen with the naked eye. The other 4 are the gas giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Jupiter, the largest planet, can be seen shining brightly in the night sky.
WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE HAVE!
A GOOD QUESTION! Please continue the topic in the posted link by Pastor Rob Barkman.

Good description of a TRUE CHRISTIAN.

Let there be no mistake about my meaning. I am not examining what it costs to save a Christian’s soul. I know well that it costs nothing less than the blood of the Son of God to provide atonement, and to redeem man from hell. The price paid for our redemption was nothing less than the death of Jesus Christ on Calvary. We “are bought with a price.” “Christ gave himself a ransom for all” (1 Cor. 6:20; 1 Tim. 2:6). But all this is wide of the question. The point I want to consider is another one altogether. It is what a man must be ready to give up if he wishes to be saved. It is the amount of sacrifice a man must submit to if he intends to serve Christ. It is in this sense that I raise the question, “What does it cost?” And I believe…

I found this post in draft on my old iPad and thought that I should finish it. It started out on the ‘lighter side’ and follows ‘A Compromiser’s Fall’ which you should read, if you haven’t yet done so. As you will see, it ends on a serious note.
2 Peter 2:16 But (Balaam) was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
In the scripture above, Peter refers to the donkey as a ‘dumb ass’ meaning that God would use this animal, a dumb ass without human speech, to speak to a human.
But the real dumb ass was not the donkey, but the wayward prophet, Balaam! Balaam was not ‘deaf and dumb’, but just plain dumb. Balaam, in this case, was the dumb ass!
Anyone who has been blessed with God’s anointing in his life and has been privileged to have had an intimate relationship with God would be wise to value his status with God. But it is also happening today where there are many servants of God who are DUMB ASSES, who would turn from listening to God and fall for the deceptive voices of Satan that beguile them to sin against God, being blinded by the lusts of their flesh and temptations of riches and rewards.
There can be only a few possible reasons why Christian leaders fall away from God- temptation is greater than the power of God’s Word in their lives, and they would confess that ‘the devil made me do it’, both reasons given in the fall of man (Gen 3:11-13).
As it turns out, the apostle Peter had no idea that ‘dumb ass’ would become a colloquial slang word that we use to label and describe people who are:
Extremely Stupid or Foolish
These words are high on the list of definitions for DUMB ASS. So happens that frequently DUMB ASSES are hard to spot initially, because they are ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’ and they look like the real stuff, but are counterfeit, false, and deceptive like their father, the devil.
In conclusion, I want to emphasize that this is a serious topic, that Satan is working overtime in the midst of the church. Some Christians are afraid of their own shadow. I exaggerate to make this point that many Christians will be deceived, will be misguided, and will lose their way because of the growing number of imposters in leadership and ministry in their churches. As an example, there are more gay ministers ‘coming out’ today and remain in their congregations. There are some who counsel homosexuals and engage in perversions with them. There are small, medium and mega-church ministers who tickle the ears of their hearers by preaching what makes people feel good, not believing that God will hold them accountable for what they’re not teaching. Hey, Folks, those are the DUMB ASSES and if they don’t repent, they will be cast into the lake of fire with Satan.

JESUS CHRIST- THE MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE
by Drgold who wrote- ‘Some info for your blog- re the Gospel in the Stars’.
This post provides great background information for learning about God’s creation when ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’ (Gen 1:1)
WHAT IS THE UNIVERSE, how old and how large is it, and how many planets, stars, and galaxies does it contain?
The Universe is everything in the heavens that surrounds our planet Earth. Ge1:1 states ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth’. Scriptures declared that Jesus is the Creator of the Universe ‘..by whom also he (Jesus) made the worlds’ He1:2; that ‘.. ALL THINGS were made by (Jesus); and without (Jesus) was not any thing made that was made..’ Jn1:3. Jesus upholds ‘.. ALL THINGS by the word of his power’ He1:3. JESUS, THE MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE, by His awesome power, upholds ALL THINGS, such that nothing collides and crashes, but everything remains in their proper order, rotation, and orbit in space.
Astronomers probe the Universe daily, using mega-telescopes in pristine mountain locations, to scan and study the night skies. Vast information has been gathered since the 20th century with great advancement in telemetry, satellites, and computers. One great advancement was the 1990 launching of the Hubble Space Telescope in a low-earth orbit. Still in operation today, the Hubble telescope is discovering new planets, stars, and galaxies, and sending spectacular and beautiful pictures of the outer reaches of our Universe, never seen before. Scientists place the Universe at about 14 billion years old, and the Earth, 4.5 billion years.
Since the Universe is still expanding, its size may be infinite. Presently, it has a radius of about 46 billion light-years, a light-year is a distance equal to about 5.9 trillion miles. In the Universe, there are innumerable planets, and over 100 million galaxies, with over 300 sextillion (3×1023) stars. Our Earth, the Moon, and the Sun are in the Milky Way Galaxy, roughly 100,000 light-years in diameter. The distance from the Earth to the Moon is only 235,000 miles, and to the Sun, 93 million miles. Our Sun is so large that about 1.3 million earths could fit in it, with temperatures over 5600° C. But our Sun is small relative to many other stars; the largest known star being 2600 times greater. (Source- Wikipedia)
Our Universe is held together in perfect balance by THE WORD OF JESUS’ POWER He1:3. If the Earth was much further away, or closer in its annual orbit around the Sun, we would either freeze or roast to death. Also, the Moon besides giving us light at night, its gravitational pull controls the tides in the oceans such that beaches and harbors would not have extreme tidal changes, and the moon keeps the Earth from wobbling in its daily rotation. Though the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, man’s time on it has been very short, being only about 6000 years from Adam to us today.
So why did Jesus so long ago put so many stars in the heavens, and made the Universe so vast with all its energy, power, and glory, and for what purpose? Ecc3:1 states ‘To every thing there is a season, and A Time To Every Purpose Under The Heaven’. 1Co2:9 states ‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for Them That Love Him..’. Since God is Almighty and very purposeful, He has a great Eternal Plan for the Universe, and also for those who love Him. (Over 4,000 years ago, God revealed His plan for mankind in the Mazzaroth or Zodiac/Biblical astrology before it was corrupted into modern astrology which has its focus on horoscope- my note).
Hopefully, this brief discussion will give everyone an appreciation of THE GREATNESS OF JESUS CHRIST- THE MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE!
