Exit Strategy End Times: “Putin and Trump Agree: No Globalism!”

blowing shofar3

Putin and Trump Agree: No Globalism! 

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

In an effort to grasp the political machinations of American politics, I have come to a conclusion. Trump’s opposition to Hillary’s “Progressive Global Agenda” is in direct agreement with Putin’s resistance to the same.

Knowing that Mr. Putin was at least briefed on Mr. Trump’s acceptance speech, it is also possible that Mr. Putin, in light of their mutual anti-globalism stance, might be respectful of Mr. Trump’s more forceful mentality and would consider laying some groundwork for a real man to man relationship which Mr. Putin which he did not have with Mr. Obama.

What strange bedfellows Trump and Putin might become and all over some “lost” emails belonging to Hillary Clinton. Believe me Russia was listening when Trump said “Russia, if you are listening, maybe you have found the 30,000 “lost” emails…”

The Democrats with their bulbous, pathetically hopeful and desperate imaginations “hear” Mr. Trump inviting Russia to “hack” the DNC data base!  It is laughable and yet Mr. Trump may have offered, indirectly of course, a back door level of friendly communication, a possible deal making level of mutual interest that could mean a new relationship with Russia.

The link below is an example of V. Putin’s policy toward the New World Order. In the several points mentioned in the text of this link, we hear an interesting take from Mr. Putin.

Note item 2. All systems of global collective security now lie in ruins. There are no longer any international security guarantees at all. And the entity that destroyed them has a name: The United States of America.

It is my opinion that the abdication of Godly principals, which inherently guarantee certain restraints upon a society, restraints we have watched vaporize over the last 8 years, is exactly what has caused collective security to lie in ruins. At the heart of that failure is the example of Militant Islamic terrorism running helterskelter across the globe. Yes America and the existing policies of the current administration are at fault.

Note point 8. Russia does not intend to take an active role in thwarting those who are still attempting to construct their New World Order—until their efforts start to impinge on Russia’s key interests. Russia would prefer to stand by and watch them give themselves as many lumps as their poor heads can take. But those who manage to drag Russia into this process, through disregard for her interests, will be taught the true meaning of pain.

I have traveled to Russia to teach in a bible college in Pskov, four different times. The people are no different than ours. They just want to live and be happy.

The vain imaginations of some in governments or those influencing governments, imposes a hindrance to that same happiness by the upheaval they cause. In America we have seen this upheaval grow into a morbidly obese lawless societal indulgence over the last eight years with the same conditions in the weather forecast at W-HRC.

Check out the link below or google  “Is Putin a globalist?”

What ever God has spoken will come to pass. Plan accordingly but not fearfully. Pray for God’s will to be done and the will to accept it ourselves.

Exit Strategy End Times: “Does patriotism overshadow our Christianity? .”

blowing shofar3

Does our patriotism overshadow our Christianity?

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

Does our patriotism overshadow our Christianity? It often does because it (and Christianity) originally had some semblance in righteousness. God will not take a back seat to patriotism when the nation has chosen to forsake Him. The majority voted for a party that wants God to be relegated to the imaginary, the inconsequential or wants all gods to be equal. With no God, they have no sense of consequences. Oh my, we are seeing the consequences, the very dismantling of the system that made it possible for them to choose. Faint not, God knows.

“It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.” John Adams

(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston: Little, Brown, 1854), Vol. IX, p. 401, to Zabdiel Adams on June 21, 1776.)

Dare we ask ourselves, in being offended, could both sides be deceived and not just “them?” Is it possible Satan hates BOTH sides (ya think?) and has deceived all of us into ungodly reactions through this turmoil we are seeing? You bet’cha! Man we have been duped for destruction! The topic or offense does not excuse our angry reaction. It is the biblical hope of our enemy! God’s word is the enemy’s only weapon! If he can get us to violate it, God will be forced to do what He must do. His Word will judge us!

God never looked for a confession. He looks for convictions! He looks for commitment based on understanding that, by the power that lies within, (Prov 8:14) sweeps aside worldly and religious doctrines as well as lethal attitudes, to choose life by the power of love!

Exit Strategy End Times: “Lamentations 6:2?”

blowing shofar3

In prayer I replied, “Lord there is no Lamentations 6:2.”

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

Every morning I spend my first hour or however long in prayer and intercession, hopefully in communication with the Holy Spirit. Listening for His response, I ask “Where would You have me read Lord?” Many times, not always, He directs me to a verse or a portion of scripture that brings understanding and clarity to me, often speaking to today’s events. This AM it was different. He replied but there was no such verse!

I know, I thought the same thing. Missed it!!! Right! I kept hearing the same thing. I came against any spirit of confusion as I often do as a practice.

“There is no 6:2 Lord?”

“You will write it now.” “WHAT?”  Red flag, red flag!

Now I will write what He spoke to my spirit. It will help to leave off where Jeremiah ended the book, last chapter, last verse.

Lamentations 5:19-22 (NASB)

“You, O LORD, rule forever; Your throne is from generation to generation. 20 Why do You forget us forever? Why do You forsake us so long? 21  Restore us to You, O LORD, that we may be restored; Renew our days as of old, 22  Unless You have utterly rejected us And are exceedingly angry with us.”

Does this sound like us right now, in America? Those who know God are appealing to Him, wanting Him to no longer forsake us, to restore this nation back to Him?

6:1 “A land, a nation, I can reject as it has rejected Me and the Son of your salvation. There is no name above the name of Jesus. His name speaks of Me and the Salvation that is in My name.” 6:2 “Refusing to use the name of your salvation, the purchaser of your souls, the teacher of MY Way, My Truth, My Life, negates your effort to invoke My place in your effort to regain and make righteous your nation. 6:3 Even as sons are used to testify of the goodness, strength, and faithfulness (to them) of their father. My Son has died to prove the same of Me and yet His name has been left out lest some be offended? 6:4 “I AM offended! 6:5 Except you repent of such ignorance and lack of wisdom, you are no different and less honest than your opponents. At least they do not pretend to listen to Me and turn to My seven spirits. (Isaiah 11:2) 6:6 You heard love and respect from children toward their father. Will I hear love and respect toward Me? Do I not set those I set, in authority? Is there any doubt? 6:7 The battle you are in is one savior against another Savior. Is your savior found in mankind or in Jesus the Christ? I have already defeated the Muslim foes! It is up to you to choose life and defeat the foe that is of your own making. 6:8 What you tolerate you must live with and in My eyes, you will die with. Choose life! You can do this! Choose My will to be your will, in Jesus’ ever to be exalted name!”

I continue, God is adding to the book of your heart and mine. We must lament our choices. We cannot go half way back to Him as a nation or as an individual. His name, the Lord’s name “Jesus” must be spoken in our endeavor to win back our nation. It is our investment for success. The chance we take. God gives success not man.

There is no excuse for excusing the name of the Lord from our endeavors. How else do we make ours His?

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.”                                                                                                                Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB)

The Word says in 1 Peter 4:11 (KJV)

“If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

May the boldness and reverence I write with, not be a stumbling block to you but instead become boldness and deeds you exhibit.

What good is a bold candidate without a Godly boldness at the heart of it all.

Anything you have heard from me over these many (136) postings, was very likely new to me also. Does it line up with the Word? Always! So read again what I have shared today and see the grace God is extending to us all. There is no victory without His name being exalted. He IS the salvation of a nation that turns to Him fully and to a heart that does the same.

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

In the guardianship of Christ,

Michael

Prophecy and End Times: “Clearly a two stage salvation.”

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. Deut 6:4-5

Clearly a two stage salvation? How can that be? If so, what stage are each of us in?

Paul said, “But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, 5  He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy,  by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7  so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7 (NASB)

Note two processes. 1. the washing of Regeneration (Greek means renewal or regenerated but is formed from 2 root words meaning to bring back and (to) life or birth) See Strong’s 1343

2. “Renewing” (Greek means “renovation) see Strong’s 342.

Paul (again) makes it a little clearer.

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified, by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” Romans 5:8-10 (NASB)

Note: 1. Justified (declared righteous) and so reconciled to God by the blood of Jesus. 2. (future tense) through Him.   Again, 1. Reconciled (by justification) to God by the death of Jesus, we shall be saved by His (Jesus’) life.

We must first be declared righteous by identification with the blood of Jesus where we ask Him to be Lord of our lives. Then we enter into the process of making Him Lord by embracing His Way, Truth and Life.

John expresses the two stage experience this way, “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36 (NASB)

Again two processes. Expressing trust while knowing that believing means to entrust yourself to the Lordship of Jesus, to obey the Son! Once reconciled, to not obey or disobey is rebellion and the breaking of the covenant you have entered into with God. The Ways of Jesus are meant to empower us further through life in righteousness by righteous choices. Only obedience accomplishes this.

Much of the church has not seen obedience as an expected fruit or criteria by God, I believe, because we have not recognized the two stage plan of salvation. Many have prayed a prayer and think OK I am good to go? You know they have! What about us? Are we obedient in the Lord’s ways? Do we hate anyone? Does anyone hate us? Who are we going to vote for? Do they adhere to Godly principles? Does this question make you angry with me?

Of course we have no chance of salvation without reconciliation. We have no chance of future salvation if we violate the rules and do not repent from our heart. We will have made our birthright of no account by choosing to hate or apologize, clinging to our bowl of soup, if you will. (Heb 12:14-16)

Remember Jesus said (I paraphrase) he who endures to the end will be saved. (Matthew 24 13-14) That is future tense. He is speaking to believers of their future reward, their eternal salvation in the future and the fact that something very specific will cause them to lose that reward. He also would have lost His resurrected life if He had not loved us enough to forgive and intercede for us from the cross.

“Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13  “But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” Matthew 24:12-13 (NASB)

Jesus is also saying that a cross-like type of experience does not exempt us from loving our offenders and interceding for them.

Clearly there is a future understanding to our salvation. That is profound and contradictory to our thinking that nothing is required of us. Jesus came to tell us saying there are things required of us in our development as children of God IN Christ.

I heard a loved and honorable local preacher on the radio us a slogan that sounds good. “All you need is Jesus.” Yes that is true if you understand that there are two stages to salvation. Reconciliation which means mutual submission between God and us, and then the renovating of our souls in the renewing of our minds as demonstrated by us in our obedience to the Ways of Jesus the Christ.

Renewing (which follows reconciliation) is the result of learning what is expected of children of God, we the joint heirs with Jesus, and obeying these several commandments. John 14:15, 15:10,  “If you love Me, keep My commandments.

“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name  of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:18 (NASB)

Finally, in Sunday school the word “believe” was discussed. “Pisteuo” to believe, to entrust. Strong’s 4100, and I did not have to say a word at all in class! PTL! The Lord told me not to speak at all in class before I left home for church.

“He who believes [entrusts himself to] Him is not judged; he who does not believe [entrust himself to Him] has been judged already, because he has not believed [entrusted] in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:18 (NASB)

Jesus name means “Yahweh saves.” This is the meaning behind the name of Jesus and it is what we must believe entrust ourselves to. How do we do that? Proceed from being reconciled to God into a life of practiced obedience to Jesus and His commandments.

Our future salvation is arrived at by two stages, reconciliation and renewing or renovation by the Holy Spirit; resulting in our obedience.  “We are saved by His life.” Romans 5:10

One last point. The renewing to come after reconciliation had to happen after Jesus departed when the Holy Spirit would be sent. He would bring to our remembrance the Words of Jesus guiding us into all truth. Truth that requires a guide.

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

Prophecy and End Times: “Has the East Wind struck us?”

blowing shofar3

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

 

God bless America video. Please watch first.

 

 

Has the east wind struck us? At a time when a foreboding darkness was rolling across the world, a Russian born Jew who had come to America wrote this song. He gathered many of us over and over again by our sentiments with songs like White Christmas, Easter Parade and of course God Bless America. He knew what the country needed and wrote a song to meet that need. I share this today, again, with tears in heart over our precious but violated America. In Ezekiel 17 1-10 you will read “Thus sayeth the Lord,” of two Eagles. The first gets its beginning seeds from the cedars of Lebanon and the roots were deep and healthy. A second Eagle, (I believe today’s America) in verse 7, had roots that bent upward toward the Eagle, not down toward the original roots. The roots looked for supply from the Eagle (the government) “It was planted in good soil beside abundant waters, that it might yield branches and bear fruit and become a splendid vine.”‘

9 “Say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Will it thrive? Will he (that second Eagle) not pull up its roots and cut off its fruit, so that it withers—so that all its sprouting leaves wither? And neither by great strength nor by many people can it be raised from its roots again. “Behold, though it is planted, will it thrive? Will it not completely wither as soon as the east wind strikes it—wither on the beds where it grew?”‘” Dear God people, this is America! Read it especially in a NASB. America has become the second Eagle. Where do we turn to and how do we vote? What about our fellow Americans? Does the majority turn to the Eagle for its sustenance? Are we turning away from our roots? Does this foretell our demise? What shall we do? Have we completely withered? Has the east wind struck us?

Whether it does or not, we each personally have a Deliverer, if we are faithful to get our nourishment from the original roots more so now than ever. Our original root system is not fully dead yet but according to this verse and Daniel 12:7 the power of the holy people will be broken, “shattering the power of the holy people,…. (then) all these events will be completed.”

Until then, we love like Jesus loved, interceding as we forgive, we rage against the Devil and his works with a holy and High Praise to God for the wisdom He has offered to us, wisdom that will save us as we endure.

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

Exit Strategy End Times: “Is America’s recovery possible?”

blowing shofar3

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

How can America recover her soul if we surrender to godless changes and intimidation?

“But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.” Apostle Paul Acts 20:24 (NASB)

Was Paul the exception or the rule, was his attitude to be a model for us?

Jesus might very well have said these same words and since we believe Paul’s words are anointed by the Holy Spirit, Jesus IS saying these same Words to us ex post facto.

Paul also says just before verse 24,

“…And see, now I go bound in the spirit, to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.” Acts 20:22-23 (NKJV.)

Paul still goes to Jerusalem. Do we not hear these same warnings by the Holy Spirit, by Jesus, in today’s circumstances? Chains and tribulations await us? We hear Jesus speaking of lawlessness and persecution in chapter 24 of Matthew. Is He warning us that what we see in these days is meant to trap us, to cause a deadly chill over our soul, to render our hearts loveless?

If we can not endure, if the Christ-like love that is representative of the good news of the kingdom, that is supposed to be in our hearts, then falters and fails towards those we see and hear, from His enemies, then (Jesus says) we shall not be saved in the only salvation that counts, our actual salvation upon death or His return. If we cannot endure it is meant to be and is even now the final attack on our heart that kills us forever, if we let it.

The war being waged in the world is over whose God is more real, more powerful. Any nation that has renounced God and His importance becomes naked of God’s protection and at the same time they become the target of His jealousy. In history God has allowed enemies to target His people in order to get their attention and draw them back to Him.

The jihadists, the militant Muslims, think their God and beliefs are more powerful than ours. To them our renouncing of God on a national basis, “we are not a Christian nation”  is proof that WE are the great Satan. In fact, as a majority chooses ungodly ways, then we have become the great Satan by definition. Our choices without dispute, as a nation, are anti-Christ in nature.

The church has failed to be the light in the darkness. We have failed to adamantly contend for the faith. Add to that the things we now allow socially and even support under a tolerance agenda in America and we have doomed ourselves to an enemy full of self righteousness. Their suicide bombs and the outright murdering of Christians is the result. There is no national “Light” shining in the darkness.

This conflict has always been a spiritual war. ONLY the exaltation and return to God and Jesus Christ by our nation, ONLY the embracing of His Ways personally, beginning with our leaders, will speak to our enemies. ONLY by electing Godly, and I mean balanced Godly men who will choose God first, then the republic’s best interest when faithfully doing their job for our nation, do we have any hope to defeat the attack on our way of life.

God is NOT interested in restoring an ungodly way of life in America. God will willingly watch America go down as an enemy to the souls of true followers and the kingdom. The rain falls on the just and the unjust. His followers will survive even if only on a spiritual basis, where unbelievers stumbling blocks or those who did not take the commandments of Jesus seriously and obediently, will perish in an everlasting death of anguish over “why didn’t I do the right thing, why didn’t I repent?”

Our enemies know the history of dealing with a God strong nation. They have been pushed back before but God did not allow them to be destroyed. They had a future purpose. We see it now. Like Satan they are taking advantage of a weakened spiritual position in America and world-wide. We see the horror and lawlessness as a result.

Hating them is Satan’s goal for us. It can kill us. Shining the Light and love of God was God’s goal for us. Have we failed in our complacency? Where there is no light, there is no revelation. Do they remain the same because of us? Is God using them to wake us up to our abdication from being His light in a darkening world?

Around the world, ONLY the Single Light of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and God the Father in us will accomplish anything for the kingdom, for Him and for us.

If we do not have a vision for the recovery of America as a nation, walking in God’s righteousness, then we must unwaveringly choose righteousness for our selves, reject the tolerant agenda, intercede for our enemies, putting Christ and His the kingdom first. We must then trust God for our final and actual salvation however it is accomplished, whether by death or deliverance.

Do not allow anger to define you. There is no anger in heaven. Anger, bitterness and unforgiveness, will cost you the very righteousness you and God have sought, been taught and paid for, for your sake. “The anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.” James 1:20 NASB

Find the book Esau Rising by Bill Cloud, published by WND Books. This is a profound explanation of the spirit that is starting to dominate our nation and the world against all things of God. It is an amazing read. I do not know Bill personally but many of the things God has shown Him, God has also shown me and I have posted same. It is a conformation to me of being on the right track with God and blowing the trumpet on the wall as a guardian of His people. WAKE UP loved ones, wake up!

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