Exit Strategy End Times: “Justification: “They know not what they do.” No more. “

blowing shofar3

“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! 5  “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.”Deuteronomy 6:4-6 (NASB)

”…He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification.” Romans 4:25 (NASB)

Webster’s New World Dictionary. “Justify: 1. To show to be just, right etc. 2. Theol. To free from blame or guilt. 3. To supply grounds for (justification.) [added for clarity]

“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.”  Luke 23:34 (KJV)

If the Father’s plan was for Jesus to be the sacrifice for our sins, satisfying the law, establishing a new version of the law, then His death at the hands of mankind was just and right according to the plan.

Yes, we condemn mankind. We feel guilty. Jesus was perfect. His death was unjust (but necessary.) Jesus loved us. He loved us enough to come, live, and die in the understanding that only comes by the human experience. All of our sinful behavior said to Him, we do not know what we are doing. Even though mankind had seen miracles and heard wondrous things, we were still ignorant. Only one thing would change that.

Remember, the disciples did not become who they became until Jesus was resurrected.

“ (He) was raised because of our justification.”

“Because” the word as seen above. Strong’s 1223 “dia” a primary preposition denoting the channel of an act; through (in very wide applications, local, causal or occasional) :- after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause)…fore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby, therefore, × though, through (-out), to, wherefore, with (-in). In composition it retains the same general import.
Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Jesus was raised through our justification. Because He justified our behavior by His own heart and words, “Forgive them Father they know not what they do.” He was then to be raised or resurrected in the perfection of righteousness and truth. WE WILL BE TOO, if we justify the behavior of others knowing they are ignorant of God and His love.

John said this, “Beloved, follow [“imitate or mimic” Strong’s 3401] not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.” 3 John 1:11 (KJV)

Is there not grace in the voice of John? Is he not saying why they are behaving the way they are? They have not seen God as compared to you who have and who choose to do good. Are not their behaviors justified because of their lack of relationship with God who changes our behavior by His love?

Can one love and do evil to others also?

Is it good for you to love those who hate you, those who persecute you, to pray for those who deceitfully use you? How about those who would kill you and I?

Jesus came to educate us out of our carnality into kingdom mentalities. He won a great and proven resurrection for doing that which is difficult for us and was for Him.

We can no longer claim ignorance. We have been told. Now we know what we are doing and how wrong and unacceptable it is in light of God and eternity. The un-renewed soul has no ticket to ride. This is why God placed an angel on guard at the entrance of Eden. Man could not be allowed to re-enter the garden in his fallen state, his impaired judgment intact. Nothing has changed.

Please, rise to this world-wide church challenge. Fellow “believers” must be helped to become mature (fervent) followers in order to survive today’s and tomorrow’s chilling and challenging offenses. If not, they continue to build a library of insurmountable offenses.

There is a reason the word says “pursue peace with all men and the sanctification, …” (Hebrews 12:14) If I am to pursue, then it has already happened! We are faced with enough offenses in our past events to forgive or ask forgiveness for, without adding daily to the list. We must protect ourselves and help them learn to do the same.

Hebrews 12:14 goes on to say more. “Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification… without which no one will see the Lord.”  Verse 15 speaks of the harm if we do not learn.

“See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled;…” Hebrews 12:15 (NASB)

We have no excuse any more. Being human is no defense. Christ endured as a human. We have been given everything pertaining to life and Godliness. (2 Pet 1:3) We do not lack a vision. Christ Himself resurrected is our vision. There is a glimmer of things to come in the beauty we are acquiring through His teachings. His love is our Way. We can be filled to all the fullness of God by the love Christ taught us.

“…and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19-21 (NASB)

Our potential is being realized, “for such a time as this.”

“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”

In the guardianship of Christ,

Michael

Exit Strategy End Times: “A restorative balm, as these come before Christ. “

blowing shofar3

“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”

On 2-6-16 in prayer I asked. “Jeremiah 4”   I read it. “Oh my!”

I suggest you read it in light of what God did not like then He still does not like or tolerate now.

Here are a couple of quotes from Jeremiah 4.
”O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou may be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?”  Jeremiah 4:14 (KJV)

“Wash your heart from evil, O Jerusalem, that you may be saved. How long will your wicked thoughts lodge within you? Jeremiah 4:14 (NASB)

And again it says, “Your ways and your deeds have brought these things to you. This is your evil. How bitter! How it has touched your heart!” Jeremiah 4:18 (NASB)

We cannot forsake what we can learn from the prophets and the history they speak of. The future can be seen in His positions toward those He loves. He has not changed.

Israel was expected to wash their hearts. “…wash thine heart from wickedness,…” So are we. Yes, we do it!

That same day in prayer (2-6-2016) I was impressed to write of what must happen before Jesus can return.

These events are in no particular order except the first item which I believe triggers the rest. Its time has come.

Enduring love saves, the good news of the kingdom, must be preached as a witness world-wide.

But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved; and this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:13-14.

The world-wide preaching or witnessing about “enduring love saves,” is an unfulfilled prophecy by Jesus. It is up to us to preach it. Every scripture about love applies. The resources for your messages are abundant.

This message is good news but as an event spoken of by Jesus it also ushers in very difficult times ahead of Christ’s return. Many will fall away that did not have too if we fail to see our opportunity.

The Apostasy must occur and the man of lawlessness be revealed. Thessalonians 2:3-4
”Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,  who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 (NASB)

The number of Martyrs (deaths) must be fulfilled.

“… and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also.” Revelation 6:10-11 (NASB)

The many will love darkness and not light. John 1:5, 3:19, 12:46.
This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.” John 3:19 (NASB)

The darkness of God will descend upon mankind in the Day of the Lord.
”Alas, you who are longing for the day of the LORD, For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you? It will be darkness and not light;…” “Will not the day of the LORD be darkness instead of light, even gloom with no brightness in it?”  Amos 5:18, 20 (NASB)

The restoration of all things. Acts 3:19-21 (NASB)

Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; 20  and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21  whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.”

I believe the restoration refers more to the restoring of the teachings of Jesus / God than restoring of the temple etc. Here’s why I believe this.

Next verse Paul says, Moses said, ‘THE LORD GOD WILL RAISE UP FOR YOU A PROPHET LIKE ME FROM YOUR BRETHREN; TO HIM YOU SHALL GIVE HEED to everything He says to you.” Acts 3:22 (NASB)

Jesus is the prophet we should give heed to. This is the context of Paul’s statement. Jesus did not say “Build another temple for sacrifices!” He said through Paul, “…your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit!”

The relationship that we are to restore in the fullness of all Jesus taught by the Father’s Words is this, Take My yoke [servitude, teachings, laws or obligation]  upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.”  Matthew 11:29 (NASB) [added for clarity]

He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.” John 14:21 (NASB)

Society world-wide is leaving behind the teachings of Christ and the bible for a worldly view. They embrace a kindness born of compassion for everything but life. It is a counterfeit lacking Christ. They are saving manatees and everything else as they abort babies by the millions. If the Devil were ever to be recognized for his sinister control over mankind, it is in this.

Remember, we are slaves to whom we obey. “Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?” Romans 6:16 (NASB)

“In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.” Judges 17:6 (NASB)

Are we not in this condition as a nation, as a world community? Are we trading one king President for another right now in America, forsaking God? As a nation our representatives have renounced our heritage, plain and simple. We have renounced our real King, our God, by voting for those who support ungodly agendas’. “No!” you say? I am sure you are not thinking clearly. “As a nation, the blind are truly leading the blind.” Matthew 15:14.

Our repentance from bitterness, anger, hatred and unforgiveness, our pursuing peace with all persons, to the extent it is possible for us to do so, is the restorative balm that brings our account with God back into a reconciled (zero balance) state. That we are permitted to do this is the good news of the kingdom. We are promised that we will receive what we give. Once reconciled by Christ’s death, this ongoing process of living our lives no longer requires a sacrifice by Jesus. It requires a sacrifice by us! We have been given everything pertaining to life and Godliness.

Until our love for our fellow man is fully and compassionately evident, we cannot fully love as Christ loved us. Until then, whatever warmth we had in our hearts, there first because of Christ’s love for us, is cooling toward others.

Our Christ-like surrender to God’s will, this witness of our absolute belief in God, His Christ Son and in resurrected life, will be looked upon by God with favor but with distain by the “many” that are doomed. Our faith will be (is) seen as extremism. Recent laws exist that speak of us as extremists; as enemies of the progressing blight over America’s majority mind. For some believers our “Crazy for God” witness and the ramifications of the “enduring love,” message will be reason to depart the faith.

Dear brethren, followers of Christ, what may come easy to us because we prepared will be lethal to those barely able to walk by faith in the troubles ahead. The scales of our heart must tip toward God and His counsel in times of offense and trial. Tell them!

The non-followers of Christ, and I do mean non…followers, will either join us or hate us. Their hatred will not be containable nor their wrath toward us. The tormenting contradiction in their souls will be volcanic and irresolvable. To them, we are either the face of love or the scowl of damnation depending on their heart. By then hopefully we will be love as God is love, enduring not judging them as He endured us at one time.

“and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”  Ephesians 3:19 (NASB)

God’s love surpasses what He knows about us. This is the love of Christ. It is also to be the love we possess and distribute. If we do, we will be filled up to all the fullness of God.

Pray and intercede now for those whose path you may cross, whether it is today or in the future. Lost “saved” souls are dead men walking and do not know it. They are future victims of the Apostasy. Your seeds of love, the power of your understanding, may make the eternal difference for them.

“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”

In the guardianship of Christ,

Michael

Exit Strategy End Times: “Am I the killer or the killed?”

blowing shofar3

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: and thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:…” Deuteronomy 6:4-6 (KJV)

“Can a virgin forget her ornaments, Or a bride her attire? Yet My people have forgotten Me Days without number.” Jeremiah 2:32 (NASB)

Do you think I speak only to you? What I teach or share, you are to teach or share! What you may already possess, give! What you may learn, apply then give. For God is our teacher and the lover of our souls.

We live two lives, one as a nation, the second as an individual. As a nation we are swept into the flow of the majority. As the nation goes so go we. As the nation is perceived so are we. Only as an individual do we separate ourselves from that majority and we must do this or they establish our identity.

God (if you believe in God, really believe) is watching, measuring, and weighing us in light of eternity. It is not to be an oppressive thing in our minds. It is simply a fact that we cannot escape His observance nor should we want to. He looks for maturity in Christ, not perfection as we understand the word.

What God observes could be very positive and much more, very confirming of our true soulful belief and dependence upon Him. This is all the more positive as we turn to Him in our errors and receive the grace or distribute the grace toward others to help us, in our time of need.

In and through Christ there is nothing God does not understand about our lives and our trials. In Christ the Father shows us what He expects of His own, relative to those difficulties. It was hard for Jesus. It will be hard for us. Acceptance can be peace.

Paul said, “…we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, …” Romans 5:2-3 (NASB)

The potential value toward the unsaved or those squandering their “reconciliation,” by disobedience to Christ, is in our withstanding the difficult with and by grace and intercession. The more difficult our trial the more powerful our witness as we reflect Christ. How can Christ be dead or imagined when He is alive in us!

Christ as, the Son of Man seated at the right hand of God, stood and saw Himself reflected in the countenance of Stephen as the understanding of the ages came out of Steven’s heart and then mouth. “…he [Stephen] called on the Lord and said, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” [Where have we heard that before?] Then falling on his knees, he [Stephen] cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” Having said this, he fell asleep.” Acts 7: 59-60 NASB [added for clarity]

Stephen had just told those who stoned him, “Which one of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They killed those who had previously announced the coming of the Righteous One, whose betrayers and murderers you have now become; you who received the law as ordained by angels, and yet did not keep it.” Acts 7:52-53 (NASB)

Am I the killer or the killed? Better to be killed in righteousness than to be a killer of righteousness!

For I announce the coming of the Righteous One for the righteous. I speak of how we maintain the righteousness freely given, for I speak only what He has already spoken.

In doing so I leave you with what all the prophets left our forefathers. I leave you two choices. No not my choices lording over you but our choices as He is Lord or not. Not one single choice that is sufficient for a lifetime but many choices daily and in a lifetime.

This is hard? We are to have the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead! He should by now have brought to our remembrance the supporting assuring Words of Christ that ease the once sin sick soul. Our hope is in Him and His perfecting His work in us.

What are these immediate choices, be they many, compared to doing right for a thousand years? And what is that compared to right choices forever? How can we except we learn?

If we think it is not possible to be righteous now, with the grace and the gift of righteousness provided us to outweigh our fleshly challenges, to give us help in time of need, why would we think it possible to live righteously forever? Righteousness was given here to be accomplished by maintaining it here first, in preparation for eternity.

“…much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:17 NASB

Paul goes on to say, “.. so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 5:21 (NASB)

He is coming for the righteous, those without spot or blemish, holy and blameless! How can that be if it is not possible for us to walk in righteousness until He comes or we die? He tells us how!

“… so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.” Ephesians 5:26-27 NASB

Notice He cleanses us by the Word, His Words, His teachings given by the Father, by His life as Paul said in Romans 5:10 NASB, and He can only do so if we let Him do so assisted by the Holy Spirit whom God sent to lead us into ALL Truth. Our path to this righteousness begins with the “Alpha” of His death for us and the “Omega” of His finished work in us!

“Can a virgin forget her ornaments, Or a bride her attire? Yet My people have forgotten Me Days without number.” Jeremiah 2:32 (NASB)

As a nation, we know where we stand. How many of “us” have forgotten God and for how long? He did say “My people.”

As individuals, God forbid this would speak of you or I dear loved ones. Still Lord, help us see as You see. Let Your righteous standard of measure be ours as we examine ourselves. This verse is about those it does apply to. Lord, You know who.

“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”

Exit Strategy End Times: ““Knock, knock, knock’in, on heavens door.*”

blowing shofar3

Blessed be the name of the Lord. The Lord our God the Lord He is one.”

* “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”  (Written and sung by Bob Dylan, CBS Records)

“The groaning of the tires droned out a consistently dull note. It filled the background of my thought process with white noise but it was more like grey noise. The soft ride of the 69 Caddy Eldorado just added to the hypnotized state I was in. My mind however was anything but comatose. No, this was really happening!”

“A flurry of thoughts and scenarios were flashing on the heads-up screen of my windshield. I am driving but only by seeing the road through a mental map of facts and fears. I had flirted with danger and it had caught up with me.”

“Most of what I saw during that ride was a rear-view mirror full of concrete, a ribbon un-spooling as it distanced me from certain death. Would it be enough?”

“Every mile had comfort in it. A little more peace a little less fear, but was I fooling myself? I know these people. If anything it was a false sense of peace. I didn’t sleep with a gun under my pillow for nothing. I hadn’t slipped away suddenly and in stealth for no reason. I was the focus of their fear.” (Late July 1981)

When it comes to controversy, I have learned that controversy feels like an attack on the heart but it often sets it free!

Besides portions of my story, what you are about to read is very controversial or “outside the box” but so are the times we are in. The content is (from) beyond me but it is absolutely scriptural. In that sense it is not really controversial. It is however far “more” than we have understood. Like you, I am a beneficiary.

As I did you will find, within, important parts of the “all truth” Jesus said the Holy Spirit would show us. (John 16:13 NASB)

In the Word of God we believe we have all truth but there is truth behind the truth, understanding yet to be grasped, and mysteries. “All truth” meant there was more understanding than Jesus explained. He may have told us cryptically but it would be hidden until the Holy Spirit illuminated our way to it. This also meant our awareness of the Holy Spirit would be required in our lives, so we would know for sure we were being enlightened.

When His expanded truth occurs to us, God is kind in that we can simultaneously and without condemnation recognize our former lack while gladly embracing His greater.

We will question the enabling truth necessary to negotiate the final stages of our eternal journey. “All truth” is not grasped except by revelation. Is the Holy Spirit guiding us? If He truly is then yes, we will find what God has intended. His adverse, even distressing truth will spare us and take us into the great beyond that we have believed in if we let His Word accomplish what it was sent to do. It will purge us and purify us, as the Lord intended. (Daniel 12)

There are many areas of concern here. It is my hope they will ultimately validate the whole of this effort. Covering a multitude of interlocking truths, they clarify each other. Things we have looked at separately will now come together, interlocking with each other to become the greater, to become expanded truth. This is fully scriptural understanding that, it appears, has been withheld by God until now. Why are we seeing this now except the times demand our enlightenment and the Holy Spirit is fulfilling the plan?

Like Jesus knew, God knew fear would come upon us if we were exposed to “all truth” prematurely. Back then, there was no supporting environment for what God wants us to know now. Now we must and I believe we will be motivated to seek, accept and walk in the understanding which deals with the prophesied events we are seeing. The scriptural parts and pieces were meant to add up, to bring greater understanding. In “all truth” we will find those added parts and pieces which can then come together in our hearts.

Isaiah tells us who will be taught and how the teaching will come.

“Whom will He teach knowledge? And whom will He make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little.”   (Isaiah 28:9-10 NAS)

“Words such as those found within “all truth” are not meant for the babe, unable to yet discern all their mother wisdom has to offer, as they reach again,  crying for the comforting warmth that must end, not discerning the kind of love to be taught which will endure all things, feeding them, …forever.”  (a quote from “Does He speak?” by Michael Daniel Dooze.)

This book has been written in much the same way it came to me: line upon line and precept upon precept, over 34 years. For those who have learned line upon line, precept upon precept, it is now time for those lines and precepts to gather. They are coming together synergistically, forming the critical mass, the fulfillment of prophecy that has been waiting for us, yes for us and circumstances, since Christ.

You will see just how we are the initiators of the Lord’s return in a Christ-likeness the world has only had a glimpse of. Biblical concepts will now over-lap, coincide, augmenting each other, creating the holy-graphic image that God wanted us to see when it was time. It is a prophecy spoken by Jesus that is yet to be fulfilled. He has pointed the way to our divine assignment and our personal salvation.

Now, just ahead of the darkness that precedes His return, there are things which must be embraced and in some cases cast off by us. We must stand in faith versus fear, grasping the disciplines that eternity requires of us, disciplines which must be taught by the mature, especially by the Five Fold League of Servants around the world.

Casting aside fear, by the Holy Spirit “Followers” everywhere will then embrace our “God-date” (not mandate.)  We will be empowered by our pastor’s in their obedient confidence and concern. Let us all, as God’s watchmen on the walls, blow this Shofar of a message. Let no blood but our own be upon our heads and it be washed away by this baptism in God’s precious grace.

Cruising south along Interstate 95, through the rolling hills of North Carolina, I am alone in my escape. Few cars are seen in the distance in either direction. It has a calming effect as my mind wanders through the moments, the flashes of warning I had experienced in the previous few weeks. In my ignorance I had almost missed them. Some of those warnings were so profound I could not help but ponder my short-sightedness.

If you knew what I did you would not wonder why I frequently checked the rear-view mirror. Their arm had a long reach if they decided to extend it. I knew they would, so I looked again and again until I saw it. The very thing I feared came upon me!

Exit Strategy End Times: “That is our defining eternal life question!”

blowing shofar3

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: and thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”

Is there a defining eternal life question? 

 “We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man,[Jesus]  we do not know where He is from.” 30The man answered and said to them, “Well, here is an amazing thing, that you do not know where He is from, and yet He opened my eyes.”  (John 9:29-30) [added for clarity]

“Measure the message not the man or surely your soul will deceive you.”                                                                                     Michael Daniel Dooze.

We may be the elect but we can disqualify ourselves at the last minute! Remember our will is still in play. What was once thought to be impossible, is, according to Jesus, actually probable for “many!”

Shall we enter eternity naked of the disciplines critical to the governing of our eternal free will?

If we have been forgiven and totally cleansed by Christ’s death, asking Him to BE Lord, do we realize what John, Paul and Jesus said we all must then know and do in order to maintain our new condition, to stay ready to actually be admitted into eternity?

“Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?”  (Matthew 16:2 NAS)

There will be an Apostasy, a falling away of “believers.” Why is John saying that “believing” is not enough?  After all he also says, “He who believes in the Son has eternal life;…” What else does he say in that portion of scripture? (John 3:36 NAS)

We know Jesus but does He know us? You say yes? So did I. Maybe He does but “Many” will say yes crying “Lord, Lord” only to be cast out. Oh He knew them but when it counted, they thought not and refused to repent. “How do you know that?” They were cast out because of lawlessness! When they asked, sought, and knocked about the beam in their eye, God told them the truth, it felt like a rock, so they did not respond in repentance! They basically said to God, “You don’t know me!” So Jesus in making His point demonstrated this reality and replied accordingly by speaking from God’s point of view, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.” (Matthew 7:22-23 NAS)  This verse points to something that we have control over. Does God know us? Does the truth prevail in us despite the pain of discipline? Do we hunger for the discipline of God that teaches us eternal rules?

The Lord is adjusting our understanding, expanding on the truth we have believed. This preparatory act on His part should tell us our time is short. We know God desires that none should perish but that all should come to repentance. Does His expanded effort, as evidenced by the insight He is giving, not speak of urgency. Oh not tomorrow but as soon as a particular message is preached world-wide, as a testimony to Him, “then” things start to happen! The message is in an unfulfilled prophecy by Christ! All prophecy will be fulfilled!

Is this a message from God in the Spirit of Daniel 12? Yes. I am convinced that “Exit Strategy, we initiate the return of Christ” is! Like the man said, “Measure the message not the man or surely your soul will deceive you.” Read the book, read the postings, see if your spirit does not witness to the scriptures and insight found therein. Then decide.

For centuries many of us sincerely and faithfully have studied the Word and served Him. In reading “Exit Strategy” you will all ask as I did, “How could we have missed this?” It now appears to have been purposeful; intentional on God’s part. All of God’s ducks were not in a row yet.

As my header portrays, like a red sunrise heralding the coming Storm, Christ stands before us. Will we see by His Words and those of Paul, John, and the rest? Do we discern the times?

“Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?”  (Matthew 16:2 NAS)

Will we gain understanding or cling to traditional thought? Will we see our destiny in this final revolution of love, this revival of revealing Him to the world by our testimony and by suffering this world and its unjust trials by grace, proving to whomever how real He is to us?

Will we chose His ways personally, running to Him for grace to help in time of need? Or will we run from the inescapable Storm, which is God, drenched not in rain, not in the blood of Christ, but in the blood of “many” we could have helped? Is our running not an abdication of our faith? Are we watchmen or not? Are we even “followers?”

Don’t allow yourself to be offended. If I offend you, and I am for you, then who are you stumbling over? Is it I or the Word of God I quote, the Shofar I blow for your sake? How will you deal with a world of lawlessness; a truth meant to capture your heart and freeze it? I am telling you to turn up the warmth of God’s love, against that cold cruelty.

Danger has come. Our God, our Deliverer, is bringing a critical message meant to awaken and protect our reconciliation and potential salvation against the threatening times. Loss of salvation by those who think they are friends of Jesus but are not, is certain.  [His words not mine]   John 15: 13-14 NASB

Better we acknowledge Him, embrace the discipline that is Him and glory in His grace toward us! God is revealing more to us by extending the guiding hand of His Spirit. This will empower and enthrone His willing children with the lovingly enduring eternal character of the kingdom, as demonstrated by Christ!

Many are moving away from God, or many have never really moved toward Him, even though they had an initial experience with Jesus and God. This exodus was foretold yes but all still have a choice!

That which was prophetically foretold is being told daily on the news. The time has come. His word says, “few” will get this, yet He faithfully offers it to all. We all thought we understood. What you read in Exit Strategy and these posts will likely say otherwise as it did for me. The blessing is that now we CAN get it and have a knowing in our soul that cannot be shaken!

“Remember, even when the prophet hears it he also hears it, for the first time.”       Michael Daniel Dooze

God’s kindness and grace are being offered to us. Let us not miss the uniqueness of this offering nor its eternal repercussions. A great revival will come from the overturning of a false sense of security by the embracing of a scriptural security released by God in a contemporary  environment where our own desire for security will serve His purposes and love for us.

If we are sons of men and sons of God, we will chose now to fervently practice the eternal disciplines of thinking, speaking and reacting as Jesus the Son of Man did. God’s grace has made it possible for us to totally succeed!

Jesus did not guarantee but gave the possibility of eternal life to us. Knowing our reconciliation would be purchased after His death, He taught eternal disciplines, before His death, that could be practiced on earth by those who were to be His followers, illuminating those practices within the Lord ’s Prayer, to carry us safely into eternity!

This is everyone’s test. It is not “can we?” It is “will we?” He has made it possible and by His enduring love has shown us, as a Son of Man, that we can be as generous with grace as He was. Will we be? That is our defining eternal life question! Will there be a revolution of real love across the earth initiated by Him in us?

It is not can we but will we embrace, His Exit Strategy! 

In doing so, WE initiate the return of Christ!  

This post, is an elaboration on the introduction  from “Exit  Strategy, we initiate the return of  Christ.”                                    

“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”

Exit Strategy End Times: “His will be spent by Him.”

blowing shofar3

“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” Deuteronomy 6:4-5 (NASB) 

“Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered; and being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Hebrews 5: 8-9 (KJV)

Jesus was not perfect until He learned obedience and demonstrated it. “and being made perfect” is the word “teleioo” Strong’s 5048 as in to accomplish, finish, fulfill, make perfect. We had no chance with God until Jesus obeyed even unto death on a cross. His obedience and ours also, accomplishes eternal things!

Jesus left heaven where He was perfect. Came to earth in sinful flesh (impossible to be perfect) resisted His flesh and remained sinless which in God’s eyes is not necessarily perfect since flesh remains, which is why flesh and blood will not inherit eternal life; in the flesh He (and we) learned obedience a requirement in the kingdom, in that obedience He became perfect, He then became the author, the causer (aitios, Strong’s 159) of eternal salvation “unto all that obey Him.”

You are saying, “I am obedient, I do forgive.” Then you miss the point of these posts. OTHERS ARE NOT obedient and you know it. THESE are the ones God and the Devil are seeking now! If you are perfected in these Ways of Christ, you have a responsibility to engage those who are NOT! Out of stubbornness or resistant pride,  they are lost and do not know it.

Having obeyed enduringly and lovingly, evidenced by His intercession on our behalf, even after the horrendous treatment we doled out, He was placed as Lord over all things. We now prove our belief and faith in Him, His loving Way, and the resurrected life He has made possible, by our obedience.

In this life, in our obedience to His Way, we are preparing ourselves for an eternal kingdom existence. Our king will rule. Obedience to Him is expected from a totally willing and forever grateful heart. A kingdom of peace is inhabited by those at perfect peace. There will never be another rebellion in heaven.

If we make Him king while here, as demonstrated by obedience to His Way when we sense Him, feel Him, hear Him, seeing Him only with the eyes of our heart, then He knows and we will know with confidence that He is our God and Lord. The evidence must be there especially for our sake. That which we know to be absolutely a fact cannot be taken away unless we give it away, for He certainly loves us. The only question to be answered is, do we love Him, really…love Him. As we love Jesus we love the Father.

Can you see yourself being spent by Him to accomplish His will toward others? Did the Father not spend His Son for our sake? Oh that our faithful obedience could accomplish such glorious results for His name’s sake, for surely “Jesus: Yahweh saves” is true and can still be true for some part of a lost and dying world which we were once a part. This is our value in God’s endeavor. What He did for us He will do for them but they must turn to Him.

Let us never frown upon a call to obey, or to suffer in obeying. Let us see the glory yes but let us understand the glorious confirmation that takes place in God’s heart as we show Him that His efforts to reach, to teach, and to prepare us for His kingdom have not been wasted. By enduring love we truly are children of God.

 “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor.” Ephesians 5:1-2 (KJV)

Our destination is sure in the Way, Truth and Life path Jesus has shown us. To follow Him there, we must follow Him here. Do we see what it entails? Let us each seek it and find it. Let us embrace the Law of the Spirit of Life and proceed to heaven under its covering! Let us walk in it to His glory, through the narrow gate, into His loving arms, with a “Well done My good and faithful servant” echoing through the halls of glory as we enter forever!

“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”

In the guardianship of Christ,

Michael
