Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

God Is Shaking EVERYTHING


In case you have not noticed, the whole world is shaking.
Why is it shaking?
Because God Almighty has promised in these Last Days
He will shake EVERYTHING.
Only that which is of Him, His Christ Jesus and His Word will remain.

'Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.'
The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken--
That is, created things—so that which cannot be shaken will remain.
(Hebrews 12:26)

Realize this, this shaking will not go away until Christ Jesus returns.
If you believe that things will go back to “normal” you are badly mistaken.
There will be no more “normal.”
If there are things in your life that are not of God
You will be shaken until you let go of them or you are RUINED.
God has put everyone in His enormous sieve.
There will be no more pretending to be Christian.
Everyone who has not allowed Christ to live in and through them
Will be be exposed as a fraud and RUINED.
Everyone and everything that is not of God, His Christ Jesus and His Word
Will be RUINED!

Every nation will be RUINED!
Every nation is godless, of the devil, and belongs to his kingdom.
They are puppets in Satan's puppet show and will be exposed as such.
The cities of the nations will all collapse. (Revelation 16:19)
The face of the earth will be RUINED. (Isaiah 24:1)

Listen to the admonishment of the apostle Paul:

Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy;
Without holiness no one will see the Lord.
See to it that no one misses the Grace of God
And that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau,
Who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son.
Afterward, as you know,k when he wanted to inherit this blessing,
He was rejected.
He could bring about no change of mind,
Though he sought the blessing with tears.

You have not come to a mountain that can be touched
And that is burning with fire.
To darkness, gloom and storm;
To a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words,
So that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them,
Because they could not bear what was commanded:
'If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned.'
The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, 'I am trembling with fear.'

But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem,
The City of the Living God.
You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,
To the Church of the First Born [Christ Jesus],
Whose names are written in Heaven.
You have come to God, the Judge of ALL men,
To the spirits of righteous men made perfect,
To Jesus the Mediator of a New Covenant,
And to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Able.

See to it that you do not refuse Him Who speaks.
If they did not escape when they refused Him Who warned them on earth,
How much less will we,
If we turn away from Him Who warns us from Heaven?

At that time His Voice shook the earth,
But now He has promised,
'Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.'
The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken--
That is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

Therefore, since we are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken,
Let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably
With reverence and awe,
For our God is a Consuming FIRE. (Hebrews 12:14-29)

I pray that all who read this message
Are of God, His Christ Jesus and His Word;
That they cannot be shaken by the shaking of Almighty God
That will continue until Christ Jesus returns.

Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!

Hearing The Voice Of God


Hearing the voice of God will determine our Eternal Destination.
This is the voice of the call of God I am convinced everyone receives.
Many are called but few are chosen, because few respond to the call.
No one comes to Christ Jesus unless they are drawn[called] by the Father.
Those who belong to Christ, His sheep, hear His voice:

'I tell you the truth,
The man who does not enter the sheep pen by the Gate [Christ],
But climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.
The Man who enters by the Gate is the Shepherd of His sheep.
[Christ Jesus is the Gate]

The watchman [those who correctly preach, teach and prophesy]
Opens the gate for Him, and the sheep listen to His voice.
He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out.
When He has brought out all His own, He goes on ahead of them,
And His sheep follow Him because they know His voice.
But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him Because they do not recognize a stranger's voice.'

Therefore Jesus said again,
'I tell you the truth, I AM the Gate for the sheep.
ALL who ever came before Me were thieves and robbers
[All who were not from God but claimed to be],
But the sheep did not listen to them.
[God's sheep cannot be fooled.]

I AM the Gate;
Whoever enters through Me will be saved. [All others will perish.]
He will come in and go out, and find pasture.
The thief [Satan] comes only to steal, kill and destroy
[That is why the world is in perpetual chaos because Satan rules the world];
I have come that they [those who believe] may have LIFE,
And have it to the FULL.

I AM the Good Shepherd.
The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
The hired hand is not the shepherd who OWNS the sheep.
So when he sees the wolf [Satan] coming,
He abandons the sheep and runs away.
[There will be many shepherds that run away in these Last Days.]
The wolf attacks the flock and scatters it.
The man runs away because he is a hired hand
And cares NOTHING for the sheep.

I AM the Good Shepherd;
I know My sheep and My sheep know Me--
[The true sheep of Christ Jesus cannot be fooled]
Just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father--
And I lay down My life for the sheep.

I have other sheep [you and I] that are not of this sheep pen.
I must bring them also.
They too will listen to My voice,
And there shall be ONE FLOCK and One Shepherd.

The reason My Father loves Me is that I lay down My life--
Only to take it up again.
No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of my own accord.
I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.
This command I received from My Father. (John 10:1-18)

Today, we have a myriad of voices screaming for attention,
Within the Church and without.
Who's voice will you listen to?

I exhort you to listen to the voice of God
That caused you to surrender to Christ Jesus;
To get that Voice firmly imprinted upon your heart and mind.
That is the true Voice of God and of His Christ Jesus;
That is the Voice of the Holy Spirit.
That is the Voice that leads you into ALL TRUTH. (John 16:13)
That is the Voice that will NEVER leave you or forsake you.
(Deuteronomy 31:8)

That is the Voice of the Baptizer in the Holy Spirit
When you received your personal Day of Pentecost;
When you received the Living Water of LIFE from the hand of Christ Jesus.
That is the Anointing of the Anointed One that teaches you about all things.
(1 John 2:20-27)
That is the Voice that makes the Word of God ALIVE!

Our ability to hear the Voice of Christ Jesus
Will determine our Eternal Destiny.
As gross darkness and confusion envelopes the nation and the world,
Satan will try with all his might to drown out the Voice of Christ Jesus.
Now is the time to draw near to Christ Jesus as never before,
To get His Voice imprinted upon our heart and mind.
This is what it means to live in the Secret Place of the Most High God.
(Psalm 91)
It is the only place of peace and rest and it is out of this world.
I pray that all who read this message are living there.

Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!

The American Apostates


Apostate: One who has abandoned one's religious faith, a political party,
One's principals or a cause. (from the Free Online Dictionary)

The sixth of God's commandments is: You shall not murder!

Anyone who murders cannot belong to Christ Jesus.
Abortion is Murder.
No one can be a Christian who is an Abortionist
Or accomplice to Abortion.
In America the entire Democrat Party is accomplice to Abortion Murder.
No Democrat or anyone who supports this party can belong to Christ Jesus;
No one who votes for this party can belong to Christ Jesus.
ALL Who do so are APOSTATES.
ALL who are so called “pro-choice” cannot belong to Christ Jesus,
No matter what their political or religious stripe.
ALL who do so are APOSTATES.

ALL who defy the Word of God by their words, actions, policies or vote
And claim to belong to Christ Jesus are APOSTATES.
Today, there are many churches and clergy who are in this category;
Churches ordaining homosexuals as ministers
And performing same-sex marriage;
Condoning political parties that condone Abortion Murder are examples.

The President of the United States of America,
Who claims to be a Christan is an APOSTATE
By his words, actions and policies.
The President just addressed Planned Parenthood
As a positive force in our society, which is in reality Murder Inc.
ALL who support him and claim to belong to Christ Jesus are APOSTATES.

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.
A man reaps what he sows.
The one who sows to his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction;
The one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap Eternal LIFE.
Let us not become weary in doing good,
For at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people,
Especially those who belong to the family of believers. (Galatians 6:7)

Christ Jesus speaking of our day says:
At that time many will turn away from the faith
And will betray and hate each other,
And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of MOST will grow cold.
But he who stands firm to the END will be saved.
And this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world
As a testimony to ALL nations and then the END will come.
(Matthew 24:10-14)

The apostle Paul tells us:
Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
And our being gathered to Him,
We ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed
By some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us,
Saying that The Day of the Lord has already come.
Don't let anyone deceive you in any way,
For That Day will not come until the rebellion occurs [The falling away]
And the man of Lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.
He opposes and exalts himself over everything that is called God
Or is worshiped, and even sets himself up in God's Temple,
Proclaiming himself to be God. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4)

Today, the Democrats, Progressives, Liberals, and many others
Claim to belong to Christ Jesus, yet, mock His Commandments
By their words, actions and policies.
They are deceived and have fallen away from the Faith;
They betray and hate those who hold fast to the Word of God.
The President of the United States has exalted himself
Over God, His Christ Jesus and His Word by his words, actions and policies
As do ALL who support and follow him.

In so doing, the APOSTATES have set themselves up as “gods;”
They worship at the altar of SELF, as does Satan!
This is the REBELLION the apostle Paul spoke of;
It has occurred in every generation
And it sent every generation who did so to Hell,
As it will send all the APOSTATES in this generation to Hell!

The APOSTATES masquerade as angels of light.
Listen to the apostle Paul:
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen,
Masquerading as apostles of Christ.
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade
As servants of righteousness.
Their END will be what their actions deserve. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

Abortion Murder and taking prayer out of the public schools
Were instrumental in the moral decline of America.
But these are simply two of America's numerous sins against the Living God.
In the END America's moral decline will bring her ruin.

No Christian can pray that God will bless America
In its current condition; That would be the ultimate blasphemy.
America's only hope is REPENTANCE; turning away from its sin against God.
I pray that America will REPENT and turn to God.

Christ Jesus said:
'Things that cause people to sin are bound to come,
But woe to that person through whom they come.
It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea
With a millstone tied around his neck
Than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.
So watch yourselves. (Luke 17:1-3)

Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!

The Magnificent Christ


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God
And the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through Him all things were made;
Without Him nothing was made that has been made.

In Him was LIFE, and that LIFE was the LIGHT of men.
The LIGHT that shines in the darkness,
But the darkness has not understood it.

There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John.
He came as a witness to testify concerning that LIGHT,
So that through him all men might believe.
He himself was not the LIGHT; he came only as a witness to the LIGHT.
The True LIGHT that gives LIGHT to every man was coming into the world.

He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him,
The world did not recognize Him.

He came to that which was His own, but His own receive Him not.

Yet to all who received Him, to those who believe in His Name,
He gave the right to become children of God--
Children born not of natural descent,
Not of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.

The Word became flesh and lived for a while among us.
We have seen His Glory, the Glory of the One and only Son,
Who came from the Father, full of GRACE and TRUTH. (John 1:1-14)

Christ Jesus has always existed from before “Time” began.
He is the Word of God and He is God, they are One and the Same;

Through Christ Jesus ALL things were made; the entire material world.
Without Him nothing was made that has been made. Nothing!
In Him was LIFE; He is the only LIFE that exists in all that exists;
God is the only LIFE that exists; all that lives emanates from Him;
He gives natural life and sustains natural life.
If He did not exist there would be nothing at all. Nothing!

Christ Jesus is LIFE and as such is LIGHT;
He Who illuminates the TRUTH, and He is that TRUTH.
Without Him there would be no LIGHT, no LIFE, no TRUTH, no WAY;
All would be darkness.

He came to this fallen world that was hopeless, helpless and condemned;
In complete and total darkness.
He came and shined His LIGHT into the darkness by His very Presence;
By the TRUTH He spoke and by the miracles He performed.
He brought His Kingdom to earth as in Heaven.
He demonstrated His superiority over the kingdom of this world
Ruled by Satan, by destroying the Satan's work; setting the captives free.

He came to His own, the Jews, but they would not receive Him.
The Jews were wrapped up in their religious traditions blinded by Satan.
They diligently studied the Word of God
But it's most fundamental meaning, the heart of God, escaped them.
They were waiting for a Messiah
Who would liberate them from Roman domination, not from their sin.
They missed the day of their visitation by God, their Savior,
And had Him crucified in their arrogance, ignorance and jealousy.
Because of this, as Jesus foretold, their House was left to them desolate.

Yet, as in every generation there was a REMNANT
Who did receive Christ Jesus as Savior and Lord; who were “born again”
Into the Kingdom of God.
Who after Pentecost, by the power of the Holy Spirit,
Began a move of God that continues to this day.

Today, this generation as every preceding generation
Has been given by God the opportunity to choose His Savior, Christ Jesus;
To make Him their Savior and Lord.
And as in every preceding generation only a REMNANT does.
In every generation a REMNANT gives witness to His LIGHT.

Today, in the gross darkness of the world we live in,
Christ Jesus comes to those who lay claim to His Name;
By His anointing He preaches the good news to the poor;
He proclaims freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind;
He releases the oppressed and proclaims the years of the Lord's favor.
Yet, who sees Him? Who hears Him?
Who has ears to hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.

Many who claim His Name are as wrapped up in their religion;
Wrapped up in their wordiness, as were the Jews of the day of Christ.
Many are blinded by Satan to the heart of God.
Many refuse to be crucified with Christ to this wicked world;
They are instead friends of this world and therefore the enemies of Christ.
Their faith is a shallow as water in a saucer.
There is no power of God in their lives; they don't need it;
They make their own way that seems right to them, the end thereof is death.

I pray that hose who read this
Have been crucified with Christ to this world and no longer live
But it is Christ who lives in them.
That this life that they now live
They live by Faith in the Son of God
And His power at work in them;
That they have set their hearts on things above;
That their life is hidden with Christ in God;
That they have clothed themselves with the garments of Christ,
And let His Word dwell richly in them.

Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!

Listen To The Lord America


[I have adjusted Mica 6:9-16 to reflect its application for America.
It also applies to every nation on earth.
The Church of God and America
Will soon understand that the God of Heaven never changes,
As He was in the past, He is today.]

Listen! The Lord is calling to the New York City, San Francisco
And every city in America.
And to fear Your Name [God Almighty] is wisdom--

Heed the Rod and the One [God Almighty] Who appointed it.
Am I [God Almighty] still to forget, O wicked house [America],
Your ill-gotten treasures and short ephah, which is accursed?
Shall I acquit a man with dishonest scales, with a bag of false weights?
[This is exactly what the Federal Reserve is in printing worthless money.]

Her rich men are violent; her people are liars
And their tongues speak deceitfully.

Therefore, I have begun to destroy you,
To ruin you because of your sins.

You will eat and not be satisfied; your stomach will still be empty.
You will store up but save nothing,
Because what you save will I will give to the sword.
You will plant but not harvest;
You will press olives but not use the oil on your selves,
You will crush grapes but not drink the wine.

You have observed the statutes of Omri
And all the practices of Ahab's House,
And you have followed their traditions.
[These are the Practices and Traditions of the godless
Through every generation, deceived by Satan and on their way to Hell.]

Therefore I will give you over to ruin
And your people to derision;
You will bear the scorn of the nations. (Micah 6:9-16)

Yet, today, those who hear the voice of God Almighty
Can turn from their wicked ways and REPENT and the Lord will forgive them.
Christ Jesus extends His hand to ALL who will REPENT and turn to Him.
This is the day of Salvation!

Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!

Muslims And American Culture


Bill Cosby, "I'm 83 and Tired,"
I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for when I was doing my National Service, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired. 
I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it. 
I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; Muslims burning schools for girls; Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to. 
I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and Madrasa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance.. 
I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.
I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off? 
I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. 
I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems. 
I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves unemployable and claiming money from the Government. 
Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 83. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in. There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.
I’m 83 and I'm tired. If you don't agree you are part of the problem!

My comments:
Bill Cosby speaks the hard truth except for the real factor, the spiritual factor.
ALL that goes on in the world today is spiritual,
Which the godless ignore to their great and Eternal harm.
Today, the American culture as a whole is non-functional 
And headed for disaster,
Because it has become godless and this always leads to disaster;
And as the Word of God declares, it will reap what it has sown.

If Islam spent as much time 
In building the culture they say they are capable of
Instead of perpetual jihad they would have some credibility.
If their morality and ethics lead to a superior culture let them prove it.
The actions of radical Islam, wanton, indiscriminate murder,
Speak for themselves; Islam will also reap what it sows.
Islam and all the cultures of the world
Will be dissolved and done away with at the return of Christ Jesus;
He will set up His Kingdom in Jerusalem, on Mount Zion, for a thousand years,
Exactly as the Word of God declares.

The sad reality is that today every nation of the world is ruled by Satan.
They are ALL going to their self, and mutual destruction, 
Deceived and godless,
In precise accordance with that written in God's Word.
It is a tragedy and yet the hand of Christ Jesus is extended to every person.
Every person can take hold of the extended hand of Christ and be saved.
I pray that many do so.

Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!

The Writing On The Wall For Arrogant America


King Belshazzar gave a great banquet for a thousand of his nobles
And drank with with them.
While Belshazzar was drinking his wine,
He gave orders to bring in the gold and silver goblets
That Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken from the Temple in Jerusalem,
So that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines
Might drink from them.

So they brought in the gold goblets
That had been taken from the Temple of God in Jerusalem,
And the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines drank from them.
As they drank the wine,
They praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone.

SUDDENLY the fingers of a human hand appeared
And wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lamp stand in the royal palace.
The king watched the hand as it wrote.
His face turned pale and he was so frightened
That his knees knocked together and his legs gave way.

The king called out for the enchanters, astrologers and diviners
To be brought and said to these wise men of Babylon,
'Whoever reads this writing and tells me what it means
Will be clothed in purple and have a gold chain place around his neck,
And he will be made the third highest ruler in the kingdom.'

Then the king's wise men came in,
But they could not read the writing or tell the king what it meant.
So the king Belshazzar became even more terrified
And his face grew more pale. His nobles were baffled.

The queen, hearing the voices of the king and his nobles,
Came into the banquet hall. 'O king, live forever! She said.
'Don't be alarmed! Don't look so pale!
There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods on him.
In the time of your father he was found to have insight and intelligence
And wisdom like that of the gods.
King Nebuchadnezzar your father—your father the king. I say--
Appointed him chief of the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners.

This man Daniel, whom the king called Belteshazzar,
Was found to have a keen mind and knowledge and understanding,
And also the ability to interpret dreams, explain riddles
And solve difficult problems.
Call for Daniel, and he will tell you what the writing means.'

So Daniel was brought before the king, and the king said to him,
'Are you Daniel, one of the exiles my father the king brought from Judah?
I have heard that the spirit of the gods is in you
And that you have insight, intelligence and outstanding wisdom.

The wise men and enchanters were brought before me
To read this writing
And tell me what it means, but they could not explain it.
Now I have heard that you are able to give interpretations
And to solve difficult problems.

If you can read this writing and tell me what it means,
You will be clothed in purple and have a gold chain place around your neck,
And you will be made the third highest ruler in the kingdom.'

Then Daniel answered the king.
'You may keep your gifts for yourself and give your rewards to someone else.
Nevertheless, I well read the writing for the king and tell him what it means.

O king, the Most High God gave your father Nebuchadnezzar sovereignty
And greatness and glory and splendor.
Because of the high position he gave him,
All the peoples and nations and men of every language
Dreaded and feared him.

Those the king wanted to put to death, he put to death;
Those he wanted to spare, he spared;
Those he wanted to promote, he promoted;
And those he wanted to humble, he humbled.

But when his heart became arrogant and hardened with pride,
He was disposed from his royal throne and stripped of his glory.
He was given the mind of an animal;
He lived with the wild donkeys and ate grass like cattle;
And his body was drenched with the dew of heaven,
Until he acknowledged that the Most High God
Is SOVEREIGN over the kingdoms of men
And sets over them anyone he wishes.

'But you his son,' O Belshazzar, have not humbled yourself,
Though you knew all this.
Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of Heaven.
You had goblets from his Temple brought to you,
And you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines
Drank wine from them.

You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear of understand.
But you did not honor the God who holds in His hand your life
And all your ways.
Therefore He sent the hand that wrote the inscription.

'This is the inscription that was written:

MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN

This is what these words means:

MENE: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to and END.
TEKEL: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
PERES: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.'

Then at Belshazzar's command, Daniel was clothed in purple,
A gold chain was place around his neck,
And he was proclaimed the third highest ruler in the kingdom.

That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain,
And Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two.
(Daniel 5)

Likewise, the writing of God Almighty
Is on the wall of arrogant America,
She has defiled the Covenant of the Living God Who made her prosper;
Her “king” is a defiler of the Covenant of the Living God;
He has set himself up against the God of Heaven;
Him and all his nobles, enchanters, astrologers, diviners and “wise men”
And ALL those who support him, will prove worthless to him and to America.
Apostate Christians are in his crowd, giving him their seal of approval.
America has squandered what her Forefathers gave her,
Ignoring the principles that were given to her.
The days of ARROGANT America are numbered,
ALL her innumerable “gods” will be judged.
God Almighty has weighed her on His scales and found her wanting.
Her already divided kingdom will soon collapse.

Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!

America's Incompetent Govenment

MorningStar Prophetic Bulletin #76 - April 16, 2013 - Rick Joyner

 We think in words. For this reason, words have been the most powerful social force on earth, changing nations, forming cultures, and dismantling them. Dictionaries help establish the definitions of words, and a friend sent me this one that had recently been added to one of America’s foremost word authorities. This is the definition:

Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
         
Could what has been happening in America be said any better? As one popular social comedian recently observed, “We now have more people riding in the wagon than we have pulling the wagon.” Very true, and each day many more are getting in the wagon than are helping to pull it. It is a tribute to those who are still pulling that our economy is moving at all, but as this trend continues, there is a point at which there will not be enough to keep the wagon moving. We are already at the place where any little hill or obstacle could stop it.  

In my last Bulletin, I raised the question about if democracy in America had failed. It has. It did not have to, and it may yet be recovered, but at this time it is broken, and our Federal government is bankrupt by any viable standard. One would think everyone would be declaring this, telling the emperor the very obvious fact that he doesn’t have any clothes on, but there is an amazing veil of delusion covering him up.
          
Our government has failed because we did the very things the Founding Fathers said the Republic could not survive doing. They were right. We could limp along for a while yet, but economic physics confirm that the party will soon be over. So what do we do?
          
First, we build our lives on the kingdom that can never fail. We do this by obeying the principles of the coming kingdom. These principles have been well proven every time to work and not fail. What are they? How can we implement them now? These are the most important questions we can be asking at this time.
          
The principles of the kingdom are simple, and we will address the important basics of the kingdom in a coming Bulletin, but you don’t have to wait for that. You have the same source we do. We can be, and should be, living in the kingdom right now that can never be shaken. When the whole world falls apart, those who have built their lives on the kingdom will not fall apart, but stand as great lights to the whole world, just as we are promised in such places as Hebrews 12, Daniel 2, and Isaiah 60.
 
Preparing for Collapse        
Some will interpret what I’m saying that I believe the American Republic is doomed, but that is not the case. Though a collapse of our currency, and likely our government, is becoming inevitable, we could yet turn back before going over the precipice. However, “If you do not change your direction, you will end up where you are headed,” and that is where we are headed. We should not give up on the possibility of being spared this tragedy, but at present we’re not changing our direction, and we’re speeding up as we get closer to the cliff. Only the most blind or foolish are not earnestly preparing for the crash.
          
If the crash happens, there is still the possibility of recovery. There also will be a real possibility of chaos and tyranny like America has never known. This could be permanent, or it could just be for a time until there is a recovery of order. Then, if we have learned the lessons and have returned to the Lord to seek His grace, we could end up better and stronger than ever. The key word here is “IF.”
          
At this writing, there does not seem to be leadership on the horizon that can turn us back from this pending catastrophe, but one could be raised up in a day. Even more than leadership, there is something even more fundamental to restoring the Republic if we are going to remain a Republic and not fall to the tyranny we are headed for.
          
The Founding Fathers warned that the Republic could only be maintained by a moral and religious people. They assured us we could not survive as a Republic with the kind of moral meltdown that we are now suffering and the departure from a core religious devotion that we have had. We have not only lost these, but the nation has become increasingly hostile to those of faith. Without another Great Awakening, we will not survive as a Republic much longer. The good news is that there are signs of another Great Awakening coming.

The Foundations Are Burning          
A couple of years ago, I had a vivid dream of America. In the dream, America was a log cabin, and every room in the cabin was a different part of America. I was being taken through it on a guided tour of each room. As we were going, little fires would break out, which my guides would just stamp out and continue on as if this was normal. I was very disturbed by this, so I looked through one of the holes that had been burned through the floor to see what was causing the fires. I was astonished to see the entire foundation of the house on fire. I knew that the entire house was either very close to collapse or exploding into flames. This is our present condition, and we do not have much time left.
          
In this dream, I wanted to run from the house. I was told not to run but to grab a hose and put the fire out. This gave me the courage to think that the fire could yet be put out, and the house could yet be preserved without total destruction.
          
In Scripture, water often represents the Word of God, and this dream indicates that this is the only thing that can save us. Even as far as we have drifted from morality and religion, over 90 percent of Americans still believe in God, and over 65 percent claim to be born-again Christians. If these are awakened, we could yet survive. We would still need to do a lot of work to restore what has been consumed in our foundations, but that would be much better than losing the entire house with all that is in it.

A New Day Will Dawn          
The good news is that the kingdom is coming with or without America. It would be much easier for the whole world for America to remain as a fortress for freedom such as it has been, but the kingdom will come regardless.
           
We are told that the foundations of the Lord’s throne are righteousness and justice (see Psalm 89:14). Righteousness is doing what is right in the sight of the Lord, not man. What is now “politically correct” is in direct conflict with God’s Word. In Galatians 1:10, the Apostle Paul said that if he were still trying to please men, he would not be a bondservant of Christ. The same is true for us. We must all determine whether we will live to please the Lord or men. We cannot do both. As the apostle also affirmed, we will all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to give an account (see II Corinthians 5:10).
           
Between one-third and one-half of the teachings on righteousness in Scripture are devoted to economics. It was to the degree that America aligned with the principles that we experienced economic prosperity. As we have departed from them, the shaking began and will continue until we either realign with them or collapse. While we were aligned, we were the greatest creditor nation in history. As soon as we turned from the basic principles of biblical righteousness, we went into debt and we now have the biggest debt in the history of the world. The Scriptures are true, and they are always true.
           
The kingdom will come either way, and it will bring the whole world into alignment to what is right and works best for everyone. Justice must work with righteousness because it is not right if it does not treat everyone fairly, with everyone playing by the same rules.
            
Our economic shaking began because we got out of alignment with what is right and just on both ends—at the top and at the bottom. This is what the Founders warned about. They fear both the tyranny of a king (the top) and the tyranny of the mob (the bottom), and set up firewalls to keep both of these in check. When these firewalls were torn down, the inevitable shaking began.
            
The Founders were not so brilliant in their architecture of the new government because they foresaw the modern economic system that has evolved, but because they knew basic human nature that is the same today as it was in their times. The Founders had a remarkable insight into the sources of tyranny from the top or the bottom of society. They had been subjected to the oppression of King George and had witnessed the horrors of mob that fueled The French Revolution.
            
The kingdom is coming because the King is going to come. He is both righteous and just. As the Scriptures affirm, He is not just going to restore righteous and just government throughout the earth. He is going to restore the earth to the paradise it was originally created to be so that even the lion will lie down with the lambs, and children will be able to play with cobras, and no one will hurt anyone else. We have been given a hope that is greater than any other religion or philosophy every conceived, and it is a sure hope that will surely come to pass.
           When we begin to see the kingdom, it is very hard not to be bored with everything going on in the earth. However, we must get engaged to be faithful to our calling, to be salt and light in this world, and to help prepare the way for the Lord and His coming kingdom.
           
Nothing in the whole creation will ever be as interesting as the Creator, and nothing in this world will ever be as interesting as His kingdom, but we have a duty. He so cares about this world that He has declared that He is going to make His home on earth and dwell on earth among men. Just thinking about this makes it hard to think about anything else, but we do have work to do to prepare for Him. In Matthew 6:31-34, the King gave us some important instructions:
        
Do not be anxious then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or 'What shall we drink?’ or ‘With what shall we clothe ourselves?’
        
 “For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.
Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.” 
          
We must be resolved to seek the kingdom first. He promises that if we will do this, everything else will be taken care of. Anxiety is a desperate enemy of those who are called to walk by faith, not by fear. Those who are building their lives on His kingdom have the peace of God, which the world cannot even comprehend.
           
Never lose your peace. After the election last year, a terrible anxiety came upon many Christians. We must never let this happen again. The Prince of Peace will never lead us with anxiety, so anything we do out of anxiety will not be right. The only word I was given after the election was Psalm 37. It is a remarkable message about this. Read it and be comforted, and resolve that you will never let anything steal your peace.
    
Do not fret (worry, be anxious) because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers.
For they will wither quickly like the grass and fade like the green herb.
Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
Cease from anger and forsake wrath; do not fret, it leads only to evildoing.
For evildoers will be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.
Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; and you will look carefully for his place, and he will not be there.
But the humble will inherit the land and will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.
The wicked plots against the righteous and gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord laughs at him; for He sees his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow to cast down the afflicted and the needy, to slay those who are upright in conduct.
Their sword will enter their own heart, and their bows will be broken.
Better is the little of the righteous than the abundance of many wicked.
For the arms of the wicked will be broken, but the Lord sustains the righteous.
The Lord knows the days of the blameless, and their inheritance will be forever.
They will not be ashamed in the time of evil, and in the days of famine they will have abundance.
But the wicked will perish; and the enemies of the Lord will be like the glory of the pastures, they vanish—like smoke they vanish away.
The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.
For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, but those cursed by Him will be cut off.
The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way.
When he falls, he shall not be hurled headlong, because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.
I have been young, and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, or his descendants begging bread.
All day long he is gracious and lends, and his descendants are a blessing.
Depart from evil and do good, so you will abide forever.
For the Lord loves justice, and does not forsake His godly ones; they are preserved forever; but the descendants of the wicked will be cut off.
The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.
The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice.
The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip.
The wicked spies upon the righteous and seeks to kill him.
The Lord will not leave him in his hand or let him be condemned when he is judged.
Wait for the Lord and keep His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, you will see it.
I have seen a wicked, violent man spreading himself like a luxuriant tree in its native soil.
Then he passed away, and lo, he was no more; I sought for him, but he could not be found.
Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright; for the man of peace will have a posterity.
But transgressors will be altogether destroyed; the posterity of the wicked will be cut off.
But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked, and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.

A Psalm of David, for a memorial, saying, “Be Happy. Don’t worry,” because the kingdom of God is at hand.
