Can a Christian lose their Salvation? Once Saved Always Saved ? -Exposing Satans schemes

Comments 36 Standard

Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. James 5:19

               The devil likes to play with words, he manipulates like a fierce attorney. You may not “lose your salvation”, salvation can’t be lost – that’s ridiculous!…..but you can be cut off of from God’s holy family tree (Romans 11:17-23). You can, if you become lukewarm, be spewed out of His mouth (Rev 3:16). If you chose to deny Him, He will deny you before the Father (Matt 10:33). Is it possible for a name to be blotted out of God’s book? (Rev. 3:5,Ps 69:28, Ez 13:9).I would like to give a dire warning of the devils action plan to break you off from the vine while at the same time reassuring you of your salvation in Christ. The devil is always trying to break you down. Those trials you are going through – it’s not other people – it’s a spirit at work behind them.

***I had a vision about 2 years that explained this to me, and I have tried to put it into words so you can understand, I know it’s a long post, I tried to shorten it, but felt it necessary to back up each thing with scripture  ***

THINK ABOUT IT:
1- you have an enemy – he works to destroy the hearts of men, to put out the flame of the Holy Spirit within you with attacks, daggers, lies, and anything else that works.
2- a lukewarm Christian is in great danger.
3- Are you following your flesh or the Spirit of God? (Galatians 5)One leads to life, and one leads to death.
4- Who do you really belong to? Do you speak from the world’s viewpoint? Or from God’s view point? Pay attention: “Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them.“If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you. John 15:18. 1 John 4:5

He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.Revelation 3:5
But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! Revelation 3:16
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. Ephesians 2:2

PAULS Steps of Salvation WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF ACTS:
1-BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST- FAITH
2-CONFESS YOUR SINS AND REPENT
3-TURN BACK TO GOD- He wants you to SEEK HIM
4-BE BAPTISED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST-WASHING AWAY YOUR SINS
5-PROVE IT BY THE WAY YOU LIVE
6-GET RID OF ALL SIN AND WICKEDNESS
7-WATCH OUT FOR FALSE TEACHERS AND WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

Lose salvation? Let me reword this so I can explain this more clearly

The devil has a plan to completely cut you off from God- yes, even after you are saved. And how does he do that? Once you open a door for him to come in, he tries to sever you from the vine- this is in the extreme cases of ongoing sin. You need to watch yourself and be careful not go back to your old ways. You must be a new and transformed person, born again. The devil ultimately wants to cut you off from God – like cutting a branch off a tree and he “up’s his game” by choking out the word of God- just like the scripture says in Matt 13:22 and Mark 4:19. You go to church, you listen and listen, but hear nothing. Nothing is going into your heart. Eventually this chokehold and the strongholds will snuff out the fire of the Holy Spirit in you. You will be dark and like the dead. You trusted all those who told you once saved, always saved, but if you don’t call out to Him for help – you will never return on your own strength. They use your sins to tie you down and hold you captive by trying to destroy your heart for God and ultimately cut you off. They’ve got you tied up- your sins tied to ropes holding you down.

What sorrow for those who drag their sins behind them with ropes made of lies, who drag wickedness behind them like a cart! An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him. “He wove my sins into ropes to hitch me to a yoke of captivity. The Lord sapped my strength and turned me over to my enemies; I am helpless in their hands. Proverbs 5:22 Isaiah 5:18 Lamentations 1:14

DON’T OPEN DOORS FOR THE DEVIL TO ENTER

Gen 4:6-7 Why are you so angry?” the LORD asked Cain. “Why do you look so dejected? You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master

Watch out sin is waiting at your door, it wants to rule you, it wants to be your desire….but you must rule it:

The devil prowls around like a lion to kill steal and destroy- do you think he hears you say the sinners prayer and says “oh well, I guess I can’t try to destroy him”? No!!! He will put every type of temptation before you so you will open up a door for him to come back in – sorcery, horoscopes, witchcraft, adultery, pornography, drugs, or any weakness you had before and more! Doubt, faithlessness, lost trust- these will lead you along the wrong paths. Once the door is open, the action plan begins.

He Sends in the legions:
Wow! Your place was clean and swept clean (that is, your heart, I mean) so the enemy goes and calls in a legion more wicked than the ones who had previously held you captive.

Then Jesus demanded, “What is your name?” And he replied, “My name is Legion, because there are many of us inside this man. “When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none. Then it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order. Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before. That will be the experience of this evil generation. Matthew 12:43-45 Luke 11:24-26,Mark 5, Luke 8:30

Their plan is to ultimately break you down. At this point, your salvation is still secure – even through the struggles, trials, and troubles. You must overcome temptation- and the Lord is always there to help you. Here’s where it gets tricky- if you decide to become a slave to your lusts and passions instead of putting God first- the strongholds set in and they soon begin to try to rule and control your life. Strong holds are a pair of demonic hands that wrap themselves around the different outflows of your heart. These outflows determine the course of your life and they also connect believers to the Lord –as if through a vine. The outflow of your heart is similar to our real heart with the chambers and how the blood flows to different parts of our body. So it is with the outflows of the spiritual heart. They outflow into different parts of your life. I saw 7 or 8 in the vision – family, work, life, happiness, etc. Once a demon has control over a part of your life – as an addiction or sin – the hands get wrapped around that one outflow-
The best way I can describe it would be to tie a tight string around a green stem or branch. Eventually the nutrients wouldn’t get though, and if kept there long enough with a stronger pull, the branch would eventually break and die. There’s more…..

Spiritual Heart? Outflows? It’s the WELL within you.
Pay attention to these verses: Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the real person. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart. Luke 6:45 John 7:38 Luke 12:34 Proverbs 27:19 Psalm 51:17
The outflow of the heart is what flows from the inside of your heart. You see, your heart is like a well. If you put good things in the well, your water will be pure and holy, but if you put wrong things in your well, the water that flows out will be dirty. It’s exactly as King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 4:23
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.

What are you putting in your heart? What are you putting in your children’s heart? Everything you do, say, hear, and places you go – goes into your heart and flows out into your life. Are you depositing anger? Bitterness? Unforgivenes? Watching filthy tv? Movies? Whatever you put in your heart will flow out into your life. You must put in the living water (John 4, John 7) – the hope and salvation of Jesus Christ. Fill your well with praises, songs, and scripture – let your mouth only speak things that are true and honorable. Run the race to win. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling! (Phil 2:12)

The devils “Action Plan”
The devil’s action plan from here is this-to keep working on this person with temptations and troubles until they have a pair of strongholds on each outflow your life. If there is a legion who have taken over, the demons stays behind this person just in case a stronghold is broken by the person- let’s say, he finally breaks free from an addiction -then the next demon in line from the legion grabs that outflow and the person is back in bondage. He keeps breaking free, and breaking free – on his own, only to be defeated again and again. This is exactly what happens in the case of addictions. You are dealing with demonic entities and only the Power of God through Jesus can bring true salvation.

I heard the person say “ I can break free from this, I am strong, I can give this up if I want” and I saw the demons behind him laugh and laugh. They knew it wasn’t true. No man can match the strength of the legion in line behind him.

Okay, so now you have these strongholds trying to break you off from God and a legion of demons behind you. You continue to go to church, and struggle privately within yourself. Fear of people – we Christians need to STOP looking down on sinners and help them out! Okay, where was I ….yes, at this point, you struggle, but still have your salvation- you try, you try…now as time goes on…….you may make up your own rules- “well, maybe this is okay, maybe I can keep sinning”, make excuses, hmm…maybe this isn’t a sin- the world says it’s okay, maybe your conscience has even become seared… and the sin begins to rule your life.

Now at this point, the ultimate goal of the enemy is to break the outflow- to squeeze it so tight it actually is broken- like breaking a branch, wait…It’s exactly like breaking a branch. Just like the scriptures said, If God can cut the true family off the tree and graft you in – don’t think your so great or you’ll get chopped off too. Yes, we are tied together with Christ through the outflows of our heart. It connects us to Him. This is what Romans 11:17-23 tells us: “For if God did not spare the original branches, he won’t spare you either”

IF YOU STOP TRUSTING YOU WILL BE CUT OFF: Romans 11:22
But some of these branches from Abraham’s tree—some of the people of Israel—have been broken off. And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God’s special olive tree. 18 But you must not brag about being grafted in to replace the branches that were broken off. You are just a branch, not the root.19 “Well,” you may say, “those branches were broken off to make room for me.” Yes, but remember—those branches were broken off because they didn’t believe in Christ, and you are there because you do believe. So don’t think highly of yourself, but fear what could happen. 21 For if God did not spare the original branches, he won’t spare you either. Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. **But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.*** 23 And if the people of Israel turn from their unbelief, they will be grafted in again, for God has the power to graft them back into the tree.( Let me break this down from the original definition: you must continue in His goodness, in faithfulness and not in unbelief or unfaithfulness.)
I’ve seen and heard of people who were raised as Christians, believed and were saved, but then went the way of the world and now deny that Jesus is the only way. The bible is clear that if we deny Him, he will deny us. The bible is clear that we cannot stop trusting or we will be cut off.

And I will destroy those who used to worship me
but now no longer do.
They no longer ask for the LORD’s guidance
or seek my blessings. Zephaniah 1:6

The Vine 
When I talk of these outflows of the heart that go into other parts of your life, they are a vine that flows straight to the Father and through this vine, you are connected to Him. Jesus is the vine. You’re part of a great vine connected together with Him and other Christians. The enemy’s plan is to cut you off- to break your branches/outflows with strongholds so you are ultimately cut off from God.
“I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6 Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. . …. Their sinful minds have made them proud, and they are not connected to Christ, the head of the body. For he holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it. (John 15) Colossians 2: 18

THE CHOKEHOLD
If the situation gets really bad, there is a demon who is in charge of the chokehold. Or maybe, I wonder, if he’s there before? But I saw this near the end when all the outflows of the heart had a tight grip(on each one I saw the word Stonghold)  and each about to break. The person was going to church and trying and trying- but nothing was getting through. He went through all the motions, but there was a pair of demonic hands around his neck stopping each word of God that was supposed to go in His heart. It’s just like the scripture says in the parable of the farmer and the seeds:

Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. Matt 13:3-23, Luke 8, Mark 4. Let’s not forget the parable of the 10 virgins (Matthew 25). They all originally had oil and they all were waiting, but only half left with the groom and the other half was left behind. Don’t forget about the scripture about those who cried out “Lord, Lord, we did this and that for you… and the Lord replied:“Go away, I never knew you”(matt 7)

ENEMY’S PLAN IS ALMOST COMPLETED- THE FINAL BREAK
So far the enemy’s plan is working, the strongholds are in place, the chokehold is not allowing the water of life in, the fire within the heart has now been ultimately snuffed out. Complete darkness. A deep dark and lonely place! If you think you are in this place, you must turn back to the Lord , call on Him and He will rescue you. Ask for prayer! Seek help. You will not be able to conquer this on your own strength!

The end of the vision was the scariest part, the outflows had been broken or cut and the darkness I saw terrified me. The outflows no longer flowed connecting to the Lord- each one had been severed, yet one, in the end of my vision…. I could see one left, barely a thread left, as if a vine had been shredded and there was still a small sliver left. I could see the Lord’s hand reaching down to help this person. I could see his arm stretched out and that He loved this person –as if he were the only his only son!!!! But it was ultimately up to the person – who would he turn to? Would he turn back to God and renew himself? Or would he ultimately cause the last break and cut himself off from God?

Let’s end with a few thoughts:
We are not taking about salvation by works here, nor are we abusing the precious Grace of God. The devil has a plan to knock you and your salvation out. If you don’t watch yourself, you will fall into his trap. It is not by works you are saved, but you better be ready that you don’t go back to your old sinful ways. You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. (Matt 7) Well who can get in????? “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible” Mark 10, Matthew 19
If we are always saved, once saved, what’s the point of the bible’s warnings?
Why did Paul bother to keep returning to people to get them back on the right path?
Why did the Lord end the bible with these warnings: Wake up! Come back to you first Love! Turn from your indifference! You tolerate wrong teaching! Repent!

HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD
Beware of false teachers, don’t follow them along their road to destruction 2 Peter 2:1
You are saved by God’s grace – and it is not by works Gal 5
If you keep sinning after you know the truth and knowingly continue in sin, there is no longer any sacrifice for these sins. Heb 10:26
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.  I and My Father are one.” John 10:27-28
Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness matt 7:21-23
Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also 1 John 2:19
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38 

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age  and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.  Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.  Hebrews 6:4

 Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God. Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief. (Warning to Sardis)
“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.(Warning to Laodocia)

But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first!  Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first. If you don’t repent, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches. 6
Warning to Pergamum: But I have a few complaints against you. You tolerate some among you whose teaching is like that of Balaam, who showed Balak how to trip up the people of Israel. He taught them to sin by eating food offered to idols and by committing sexual sin. In a similar way, you have some Nicolaitans among you who follow the same teaching. Repent of your sin, or I will come to you suddenly and fight against them with the sword of my mouth. (Warning to Ephesus)

Don’t ever give up! Turn from your wicked ways and come before Him with a repentant heart, call out to Him with fear and trembling. “Dear friends, work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear” For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:15,Phil 2:12)

When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, he shall die because of it. But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is lawful and right, he shall live because of it. Ezekiel 33

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come! And let him that heareth say, Come! And let him that is athirst come! And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Rev 22:17

Dear Lord,
I pray for those suffering through this, may you restore them Lord. Break the binds that have held them down, release the captives and set them free. Protect them from all evil and give them wisdom and understanding. Give them a new heart and renew a right spirit within them. Give them a desire to seek you and love you above all things. Release the prisoners and those who are about to perish. Restore the lost and help us gather them back in. Save us, restore our sight so we can see. Make the path ahead plain for us and bring those who have fallen away -back into your everlasting arms. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen

“Put ye in the Sickle, for the harvest is ripe”.. tares, wheat ….and wickedness shall increase Revelaton 14, Joel 3.

Comments 6 Standard

    I’m in the Appalachian mountains vacationing, my internet isn’t working well and my word stopped working on me!   I’ve spent much time studying scripture in the last few days and have had many new revelations. I have lots to share, but I’m limited here. In the meantime, I wanted to show you something the Lord revealed to me…. so I’m going old school here- and I’m posting with crayons and markers- see below.  I just can’t keep this contained until I’m back to normal life- off the  snowy mountains….and as some of you may know, I’m not the artist, but I hope the message is clear.

     I’ve been studying the woman in the ephah in Zechariah 5 (after a scary dream about it- I’ll write in another post-sccccaaaary!). I’ve put a lot of study into that which ties into other studies I am doing in Revelation 19-when the Lord comes back with His army and Matthew 24:12- increase of wickedness and 2 Thessalonians.  I have asked the Lord many questions, maybe too many.  One thing I’ve been really concerned about is the increased wickedness that is spreading. The government statistics will show another story,  but the Lord has shown me how wickedness has filtered into everything- our homes, our music, our children, our schools-spreading like wildfire- like a weed over all the earth. We have made excuses for every sin and don’t even realize it. Even things I thought were innocent…  I was playing the wii dance 3 and 4 with my girls and I knew I had to turn it off and return it. It was so dark and the words were demonic, depressing. The words they were chanting to the dance were ungodly! satanic! and promiscuous! Is it so difficult to make a clean game or movie today?  My Cd player in my car broke so we had to resort to some weird back country music as we drove her.   I heard a song with a great beat “She makes me suicidal, suicidal” it’s so catchy,  pretty soon everyone is singing it, the next song was “hope to die, stick a needle in my eye”- I was fighting with my husband to turn it off,  then I turn around to see what my child is doing on her new ipod (another thing I don’t agree with- take a good look at it’s symbol) and she is playing a game with a bunch of demons chasing her as she runs to an idol! agh!  I deleted it and prayed

             “Dear Lord, please have my children despise the time on their ipods and anything else that takes them away from you, fill their heart with a desire for you” -He answered my prayer! No one has been on their ipods except to take a few pictures- hallelujah!!!

   So last night I was talking to the Lord about all the verses in my head, asking him about things Daniel and John were not allowed to write down, about the wickedness going to Shinar by those two stork winged women (ew! they sound like fairies), the increased wickedness,the wheat, tares, and how the Lord will return as described in Revelation 19. As I was talking and asking…. I saw this……

GetAttachment (3)

   I know…… what is it? Okay this is what I saw:   I saw the earth and over it was growing this dark, thick, strong, choking black weed or root. I was beginning to cover the whole earth. I could see it had something to do with powers in the sky/ air- as if through tv, internet and those type of things… this wicked root was growing at a rapid speed.  Suddenly, my thoughts were full of verses helping me to understand how this ties into the wheat tares when the command for the great sickle is called upon.(actually my pic came out sideways because I saw the weed spreading from the east to west…see the picture I have below.)

  Joel 3:13  Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Rev 14:14-20 And upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having  on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had the power over fire, and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust the in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and cast it INTO THE GREAT WINEPRESS OF THE WRATH OF GOD. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and the blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse and bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
Revelation 19:13-  And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and HIs name is called the Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, and that with it He should smite the nations, and He shall rule them with a rod of iron, and He TREADETH THE WINEPRESS OF THE FIERCENESS AND WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
Matthew 13:7-  And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up and choked them(see also Matthew 12-13)

(How did I see this? This wasn’t a dream or a place I was taken to- as in the past…it was different from my vision of the heart and the cross where I could see it like a movie screen before my eyes. This was, how can I explain it? In my mind’s eye as I prayed. I could see it as I was awake and praying. It’s understanding and scripture came into my mind as I looked on it and tried to understand what I was seeing.. This also happened to me with Revelation 19 two years ago- so I take the information the Lord gives me and back it up in scripture for understanding. I have a long way to go on understanding this, but I want to share the warning with you.)

    Maybe I’ve said to much- so much to explain- but here is the message I think the Lord wants us to know- BEWARE AND BE READY. Beware of wickedness and evil that is rapidly spreading.  Stay in the Word of God night and day so you will know which way to go. Delight in His words and His ways and do not fall into the current of the World. Keep yourself ready at all times – to be pure, holy, and without blemish, waiting for His return. His Wrath is full and ready to be poured.  The sickle is ready to pull out this evil weed that has spread and we are told when this happens, the blood of many will be spilled- so much you can’t even imagine. Stay true and stay pure for the day of the Lord is closer than it was yesterday……………………………………..

                       Attn: Parents— watch what your children are doing, what they are watching, what games they are playing, what music YOU are allowing in their hearts. They are the easiest target for satan to go after, and he has unfortunately, done quite a job on our youth. Many times we don’t realize the wicked things we bring into our homes. This is something the Lord has shown me also- that even I have brought things into my home before my children that are wicked and evil and I didn’t even know it.

A vision of the Lord’s return – The day of the Lord – PRAY FOR THE LOST

Comments 3 Standard

Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:  And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.  Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger Is 13:6-9

                Taqiyah

         Earlier this year, as I lay awake in the night, I saw a scene play out before my eyes. As if I were there, I could see a panoramic view of another land. I was not familiar with this place, the men dressed differently and the street and the people were in a place or land I was not familiar with-I knew it wasn’t America. I briefly mentioned this in a post a while ago, but today, the remembrance of it weighs heavily on me. I don’t know why, but it has been in my thoughts all day.

             “And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth”

   In the vision, I saw men standing, scattered throughout the streets. In front of me was one man in particular who stood closest to my view. I watched him and all the other men that were walking up and down the streets. Everyone was going his own usually way. Everything seemed fine…….. but suddenly I saw great terror griped everyman’s heart – a fainting, a trembling. They looked up and saw the Lord before them, they were so suddenly afraid. Without a word, only their sight, they knew it was the Lord and they were in terrible fear. The Lord was coming towards them (it seemed as if He was coming from the east) and each man was frantic as if they knew terror was ahead. Each one ran here and there, but had no where to escape. There was great fear and great chaos on the streets as men ran frantically away from the Wrath of the Lord. The vision startled me, there was so much fear! They absolutely knew the Lord was before them and they were instantly convicted and knew they should fear.

    At the end of the vision, I saw the men as they stood in fear. They were frozen, staring, looking up, trembling – there was no place to hide, nowhere to turn. Their hearts melted in terror.

          I wasn’t familiar with the clothing I had seen them wearing, nor the caps. The caps that I saw seemed to have a lot of colors woven in them.  The caps or hats I saw looked similar to those in the picture above. The man in front of me in the vision had a colorful  cap (tagiya-is the name, I later found out)  with different colors running vertically. I’m pretty sure I saw them wearing robe like outfits, but I am not sure. The caps or Tagiya I saw stood out clearly to me because I had never seen them before.

    Determined to find out more, I searched out the clothing I had just seen. The caps I saw are called tagiya, a cap worn by Muslim men/ as someone who adheres to Islam.

Today the taqiyah still serves, amongst other things, as a form of religious uniform, to identify oneself to the rest of the world as somebody who adheres to Islam. Taqiyah is a short, rounded cap worn by some observant Muslim men. Muslims wear the taqiyah to emulate Muhammad. The companions of Muhammad were never seen without their heads being covered. The taqiyah is also called a ‘prayer cap’ in English. Some Muslims wear the taqiyah during Jumu’ah  prayers at the mosque, and during daily salat (prayers) at home. For men, it is mustahabb, which means ‘commendable‘ or ‘seeking the love of God’, to cover the head during prayer. Some Muslims use a prayer mat during praying. Muslim men might wear a taqiyah during weddings -from Wikipedia


         This picture is similar to what I saw. However, the street was wide and there were crossroads. I saw hundreds and hundreds of men wearing these caps as they began to scatter and run in fear-  running to and fro- no where in particular because they didn’t know which way to run, there was no place to hide.

What is the Day of the Lord?

For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,  And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ? Is 2:12-22

Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:  And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.  Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. Is 13:6-9

For this is the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord God of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates Jer 46:10

The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land. Zephaniah 1:14-18

Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger. Zephaniah 2:2-3

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. Malachi 4″4-5

 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness . Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.2 Peter 3:11-18 (I think that was a warning that we can fall away from our salvation-despite what many teachers try to tell you)

        4-2012(I wrote this when I saw it)
I saw a great commotion among the people,
but not here
I saw a crowd of people in great terror
I saw men run in fear to their left
but they found they could not escape
I saw them turn and run to the right
Searching for a hiding place
but again there was no place to hide
they were without refuge and without safety
and had nowhere to turn.
I saw as I stood behind a great crowd of men
At the end they stood frozen in fear
Looking up, trembling- they had
nowhere to go, nowhere to turn
their hearts melted as they visibly saw
the indescribable power of the Lord.

      Pray for all those who are lost.  Live right so you will be light to them. All things are possible through Him and we know that each day is a sign of His patience…one more day, one more minute He waits for the lost to come back. Come back! Turn around! For the Lord your God is calling you. Repent of your wicked ways and Seek Him- You will surely find Him.  Jesus is the only way to the Father. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
    Treat everyone with the Love of Jesus.

and I heard ……..The Heavenly Host Praising God. Luke 2

All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often
Luke 2;18-19

but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often”

        I always wondered about this verse when I was young and now that I am older,  I also have things I have kept in my heart and think of often. There is one particular thing I’d like to share that I have kept treasured in my heart for years. It’s something I go back to often and I think of each Christmas. It’s something that I remembered continually as I studied the scriptures to make sure my Savior was real. When I sought out to truly seek and find the Lord, when I wanted to make sure my beliefs that I was taught as a child were true, I always remembered this night. There are many other things I fall back on in remembrance, many wonderful miracles that I keep treasured in my heart and remember often.

But then I recall all you have done, O LORD; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago. Remember the wonders he has performed, his miracles, and the rulings he has given. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our LORD!
Psalm 77:11 Psalm 105:5 Psalm 111:4

         I was about 16 or 17 years old, and it was Christmas Eve night or early Christmas Day. I awoke to what I thought was a loud party in the middle of the night. I heard loud Christmas songs being sung so loud that I was surprised my entire neighborhood wasn’t awake. My first thought was “My neighbors are so rude! Having a party at this hour, waking up people!” (My room was a converted garage so I was across the house from everyone in family) I looked out my front window to see which neighbor was partying. It was dark, no lights on anywhere. I stood frozen and confused. Where was this singing coming from? I could hear voices singing, I could hear a multitude of voices singing praises and it was a Christmas song I knew. I looked out my side windows to make sure it wasn’t my other neighbor, but their house was silent and dark. The music, the singing voices sounded like they were right in front of me. I checked again everywhere, to find out where this party was, but my entire neighborhood was still, silent, and not a light on anywhere.
         It was at that moment, I froze in terrifying fear. I realized the voices were coming from each window around my house. It was so loud! And so beautiful! It filled my room and seemed loud enough for all to hear! I heard what seemed to sound like men’s voices singing praises to Jesus- the newborn King. It was a Christmas song I knew and was familiar with, but I can’t remember which one it was. I remembered my prayers that I had said that night and each night since early childhood; “Lord, protect and surround my house with angels as we sleep, guard every door and window with your angels” (living in Miami, that was my nightly prayer)

    There I stood, frozen- unable to move. I suddenly realized what I was hearing.  I knew I was listening to a multitude of mighty angels singing praises to the newborn King, to Jesus, the Savior of the World. It was amazing. Still frozen, standing up by my window, I considered what I heard. It was the most beautiful sound, like men’s voices praising God. I’ve never ever heard anything that matched the beauty of the voices and singing I heard that night. I could hear this from each window and I perceived that the sound was coming from just about the roof level. It sounded like men’s voices who were taller than the roof of my room.
   When I was finally able to move, I ran to my brother’s room. I unlocked his door and despite his complaining, dragged my little brother(well, he was 14) in to hear what I heard! However, once I dragged him in, I didn’t hear it anymore – and I fought with him to sleep on his floor because I was afraid to go back in my room alone. So, maybe it ended up a little unholy- fighting with bro -but this night has been a treasure in my heart that I will never ever forget.

I know Jesus is real- without a doubt in my heart, He is the
Savior of the World.

Sometimes we can forget what this special day is all about, but the story never gets old, it is brand new each day. Lift you hands and sing praises to our King. What a glorious day it will be to hear them again. What a precious moment it will be when all the earth will bow down before Him and proclaim

Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

        Just imaging the praises that go on night and day to the Lord, makes me want to join in together with the heavenly Hosts and sing with all my heart, how wonderful and praise worthy He is. Amen and Amen. Glory to God in the Highest!

Today, stop and remember all the wonderful blessing and miracles the Lord has done for us. It’s a good thing to remember, write down the Lord’s good words, Praise Him and tell others of all His glorious works.

Then they remembered that God was their rock, that God Most High was their redeemer. They did not remember his power and how he rescued them from their enemies.
Psalm 78:42 Psalm 78:35

And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.  Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.  For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

          May the Lord bless you and keep you. Remember- that even though the world around us may fall to wickedness and evil, the Lord’s message to us is clear “Do not fret, do not worry- they will soon disappear ” Don’t let the falling away bring hopelessness or worry you, but instead let us join together and Praise Him, telling others about our Savior and gathering in those who are lost. Lord, may your wonders be proclaimed throughout the earth.  Bring your peace and comfort on those who are mourning, surround them with your love. May your people rise up in Honor of your glorious name- Lord watch over us and God bless Israel.
