A Timely Dream?


To the right here is,obviously, a book cover. It is a book that I highly recommend, although I have not had a chance to read the whole book. You can click on the picture if you would like to order a copy.

I am not posting today in order to sell Bucks book. It would be great if he did start getting orders from all over the world, he is a great man,Evangelist and a faithful servant of Christ, but my post focuses on the cover.

Before my son ever saw this book, and I think before the book came out, my son had a dream. It was a prophetic dream, and one that stuck in my spirit. I know some of you that have read my last couple of post may be wondering why I have included my youngest son in them. My answer is: I do not know. However I do believe I am being led by The Spirit.

So here is the dream. I will repeat it the best way I can, trying to stick with what he said. This is how he told me the dream:


" We were all sitting in the drive-way at Grandmas talking about the World War that was going on. I was telling everyone that I saw a news report that a country had developed a new weapon. I was then suddenly in space looking at The Earth(See book cover). There was a big flash above the earth and then a big flash below the earth(again see book cover). Then I was pulled out of my body, like my spirit was yanked from my body. Instantly I was walking with my friends and we were had bears on leashes."

As I am posting this I am reminded of another dream I had. Possibly that will be the next post. I ask you all to pray for North Korea and Myra-mar. If you did not read my post a couple weeks ago, please scroll down to find it. It was posted before Kim Jong Il died. Pray for the people.


Those interested in prophetic poetry that have not read some of the things The Lord has graciously allowed me to pen, can also scroll down, you may have to click "More Post" to see them. Or click here. :) 

God Bless!!! See you in The New Year!!!!!

Resist or Persist?

Once again a project my son is doing for school is my inspiration today. I believe my son has been given some prophetic gifts in the same way I have and the same way my dad has.

The dreams he has and the way some of his creativity is expressed is powerful to me at times, in the way I see the Lord speaking through them.

To the right is another poster he made. As I looked at it the words "Are we to resist or persist in the coming days??"

When I began to write this I was sure of the answer, resistance seems like rebellion, so my conclusion was: We are to persist, not resist the coming "New World Order".

However the Lord began to speak to me,and  is even now as I type. There is a reason why many in  my sons generation, the teenagers He is grooming for service, have a stick to your guns, resist the enemy,almost militant attitude toward the things of God. They may not get things just right, they may not hit the mark when it comes to keeping away from some sins of the flesh, but like a generation of Davids, they are warriors for The Lord!.

They not only have a heart to resist lies and evil, they have a heart to persist even through the coming darkness. They don't need prosperity to a fault in order to be soldiers for The Kingdom. They don't need plush surroundings and a comfortable environment to serve The King. They are being prepared to carry the torch for The Lord through the dark days to come. They are being groomed to be light bearers for The Lord.

I see in my son and the many teenagers I have observed at Christian Heavy Metal concerts, an amazing heart for The Lord. A rough, unrefined attitude that proudly declares Jesus as Lord, and doesn't care what anyone thinks of it. They don't buy the errors and lies so many in previous generations have. They see right through charlatans. They want The Love and Power of God and could care for little more. They have a heart for missions and hurting kids in other nations. I love it, and it brings tears to my eyes.

I will end by offering up Thanksgiving to The Lord for all those He is preparing in this young generation. All those that we see serving now and all those that He is keeping hidden, so they will learn from him, and then be released into The Body and The World.

Thank You Father!! In Jesus Name

My next post will be a dream my son had, with a picture from a The Cover of a Book from Buck Stephens. My son had the dream before The Book was out, I believe the picture he saw in his dream, was a confirmation of a Word from a seasoned saint and prophet, and a young 16 year old that seems to have a prophetic gift.

Hope

The picture to the left is a project my son is working on for school. As soon as I saw it my spirit man was moved, it spoke so much to me. 

He would say it isn't finished yet, that it isn't that good,however I see it as a perfect illustration, yes possibly even a prophetic illustration of the world now and the one we will see very soon. 

I want you to pray a bit right now, touch Gods heart in prayer and then look at this picture.

So many people all across this globe are clinging unto a fading hope. They are crossing a crumbling bridge to an unknown destination that they hope will bring them comfort and stability. But even that hope, even the god given desire to hold onto hope, is beginning to fade in every area of man. 

In many nations where there is no real tangible governments or necessities, there seems to be more hope, than in nations that it would appear have every financial and material reason to remain hanging unto hope. There seems to be more smiling and happy children running the streets, in the poorest parts of the world, than in nations where children have all they need or want. 

Still, everywhere we look there is something or somebody pushing themselves or a product as the reason to hang unto hope. All have failed, and all will fail. This world, in and of itself, has no hope. We are spiraling toward a fiery end, and a final battle, and there is nothing that will stop that.

But this is The Good News, This is The Gospel! There is HOPE!!! 

In the first verse of the eleventh chapter of Hebrews it says; (Header Added)

Hebrews 11:1 

 

By Faith We Understand

 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.




I have a saying that I tag on emails sometimes that says;
"You can have hope without faith, but you can not have faith without hope"

I want you to read that again:
 "You can have hope without faith, but you can not have faith without hope




It is no wonder why HOPE is under such attack, not only in the world but also in The Church. Remember as you go through your day and life, that you are an ambassador of The Good News. You carry the news, the HOPE the world is looking for. 


Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost. He is The Hope of the salvation that the lost are seeking in material things and man. He is the peace they seek, the stability they long for, and again, the Hope they desperately need.


Don't worry about what this denomination does or that one teaches. You be a living, breathing testimony for Jesus and the love He so longs to show The World. Be an example to those losing hope, allow The Holy Spirit to reach through you and give them, what they have been drawn by Him to seek. The Hope of Salvation!!! Jesus Christ!!! Our LORD!

Note To Myanmar and North Korea

If you would stop bowing to fear and use your power and military to love, protect and provide for your people, especially the widows, the young and the fatherless, you and your Country will be blessed. 

I am not saying you have to become like America. I am not saying you must become a Christian Nation. What i am saying is that love is more powerful than hate. The strongest man or leader is one that does all to provide and to protect his people.

There is a verse in our Bible that says that the wealth of the wicked is being stored up for those who will have mercy on the poor. Do you want God to bless your nation and empower your people? Begin to allow your people freedom, feed them, protect them, do all you can to open your borders to humanitarian aid and freedom of religion.

Don't allow one religion to use violence against another, but allow freedom to express, share and worship.  Our Bible says that The Nation whose God is The Lord shall be blessed. Blessed in these verses mean empowered to succeed.

I know the day may never come, but if I could just embrace you, and allow you, for just a moment, to feel The Love of Christ. The Love that God had when He sent His Son to die for the world. The Bible says that God so Loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever will believe in Him shall not die, but have everlasting LIFE!

This may be a note to no one. I realize the chances of anyone in a position of power in these nations and villages, are little to none. But if you are reading this, then God Himself led you here. And if not, then this note had gone up as a prayer on behalf of those stuck under oppression and poverty. This note has gone up to God as a prayer on behalf of the widow and the fatherless. This note has gone up as a prayer to my God. A prayer asking God, the Lord of all creation, creator of Heaven and Earth, who holds the worlds in His hand, to free those people, to break down the gates and allow His Love to reach those behind those walls.!!!!



The Walls

From inside the walls and outside the walls
There is raising up a shout
The voice of The LORDS Redeemed
Shouting let the captives out!
 
From inside the walls and outside the walls
A song is being sung
Gods chosen, singing in The Spirit
Singing The Time of freedom has come!
 

From inside the walls and outside the walls
The Word is being declared
Gods kings and priest on the earth
Taking authority, over the prince of the air
 

From inside the walls and outside the walls
Victory is being revealed
The elect of The LORD
HAVE BEEN CHOSEN,SAVED AND SEALED!

 
FROM INSIDE THE WALLS AND OUTSIDE THE WALLS
A NEW NATION HAS BEEN BIRTHED
AND HER CITIZENS ARE SHOUTING
JESUS IS LORD OVER ALL THE EARTH!

What Every Christian Needs To Know



Below is a song/poem that I am praying will build you up for the  onslaught of persecution from the world and spirit of Anti-Christ that is to come.

I was reminded of this as my wife and I spoke last night about how the enemy will deceive a Christian, and then push them to make as many bad decisions as possible while they are still deceived. The more bad decision he can hurry them into making, the harder it will be for them to recover from those decision if and when they wake up from the deception.

There is coming a time that great pressure will be put on people to rush into decisions in order to protect their families from lack. Many of the lost will embrace what is offered freely for fear of going without and for fear of financial loss. This is exactly what the Anti-Christ and the spirit of Anti-Christ that is in the world and in more and more governments will use to cause men to bow to his system and eventually to him.

Revelation 13:16-17

 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 

I want to encourage you my brothers and sisters in Christ, Trust in The Lord with all your heart. He will provide!!! He has all you need, and there is no reason to bow your heart or knee to fear anything that the enemy or the world puts before you. Let your declaration be. The LORD is MY Provider.  

No FEAR No DEFEAT

I am not worried and I am not hurried
Because, We have been anointed
And, We have been appointed
In this season and in this time
TO walk in our destiny
Our destiny divine!!!

No FEAR!!!

The Light that is in me

I am not worried and I am not hurried.

That The Lord has a plan.
He is faithful who has promised!!!!
And will not be deterred by the foolishness of man!!

A Great Example of How We Need Each Other

This is a wonderful example of how we need each other in prayer and in ministry when we come up against the enemy and when we enter his territory to take ground for The Kingdom!

STAND!!!!

The Bible says that as a man thinks in his heart, so he is. The Church should consider this. Could it be said that as a church thinks in her heart so she is? 

Are we laying burdens on peoples shoulders that they were never meant to carry, and calling it "testing" or "trial". Are we losing called,equipped and anointed ministers, because the bar we are setting is our own, and not Gods? 

There comes a time, when, although we respect and honor our leaders, we have to stand on what The Lord has called us to be and what He has spoken to us clearly. If we don't ,then we have put our destiny ,and our call ,in the hands of other people instead of Gods.

 This can be a hard thing to do. We do not want to do it out of frustration or anger. We must be sure that our stand is not against our leaders, but instead on what we know The Lord has called, and commissioned us to do. We must keep our heart pure and close to The Lord.


 I have learned that when I begin to pull away from serving in the church, I have to check my heart. That is a good way to tell if your stand of faith and on Gods call, is becoming a stand against the leaders you are serving under.


Know this, that God is not an impersonal God ,that is constantly putting us through test and trial, with no season of rest and abundance. With no season of reaping answered prayers that bless our heart and our loved ones. He is a good and caring Father. He is a faithful and well able God in whom all things are truly possible.


He sees your heart. He knows every tear that has fallen from your eyes. He sees your faithful plodding and your times of stumbling and trial. He is ready to pour His blessing and harvest on you. 


So if you feel like you have been under and endless burden of test and trail. Check what you have been thinking in your heart about our God. Look to The Cross of Christ and see that HE took it all, so you didn't have to carry that burden any longer.


And if you know that you are called and set apart as a ministry gift to The Body and the world, stand on what The Lord has spoken to you, no matter who or what tries to make you step off  it.


Isn't that just another test you ask? Sure, I guess, but an easy one. Just purpose in your heart to agree with God and not with man or the enemy. It is as easy as choosing to stand up or sit down. 


The church and the world can't afford to lose anymore ministers that God has sent with fire in their hearts, to accomplish His will. Too many churches in too many places are quenching The Spirit of God, by quenching the Prophets and Evangelist sent to do His will on earth.


Far too many churches are moving toward softening the message of The Cross, The Blood and The Power of The Spirit, to make services more user friendly. We have enough comfortable palaces in this nation as Pastors in other nations die for the Gospel and scrounge up every penny in order to feed and protect children.


 What we need is training grounds in The Word and The Spirit in order to train powerful ministers and Pastors to take The Gospel of POWER to The Nations. 


 So please, Oh mighty Man or Woman of God. Don't be quenched. Don't sit down! STAND! AND HAVING DONE ALL TO  STAND!!! STAND

Are You Listening?

The reason we sometimes can't be led by the Spirit of God in certain areas, is because we are always looking to other things or people to lead us in that area. In whatever area of your life that you allow circumstances or the past to lead you, is the area you will be hard of hearing in.
  
CALL FORTH

I was facing a very old, wet, stone wall
I climbed to the top of the wall
When I got to the top I looked down at a hungry child
He was seated and was surrounded by empty containers
Of all different shapes and sizes
In my spirit I considered that the containers were empty
I heard in my spirit “missionaries”
I immediately began to cry out over the wall
I wasn’t crying out to the child, but to the containers
“ASK EXPECTING TO RECEIVE”,
“ASK EXPECTING TO RECEIVE”,
“ASK EXPECTING TO RECEIVE”.
The Dream Ended

Be Well!

When He pulled His hand away from me my spirit cried. My soul failed and my legs could not stand. Yet He was always with me and His return brought understanding.

This is a wonderful day. This is a blessed day. This is a day The LORDS hand will be seen and His voice heard on the earth. To some His arm will be revealed!
He silences the voice of the accuser and destroys the armies that come against you.
He is a mighty and powerful God that created all things and in whom and for whom all things exist.
He embraces when others judge and cast off. He listens when others have already stopped listening. He cares when all have abandon.
He upholds us and comforts us. He guides us and guards us. He understands when no one else does. He brings to life what seems dead.

He is a warrior King....A warrior God...who calls His servants to carry a flaming sword into the dark lands on earth and in hearts.
Jesus not only performed amazing miracles but bids His fellow heirs to do the same.
He calls you to take peoples...tongues and tribes back to His throne while others hide with their own.
He bids you to walk with Him on the water as others cower in the boat. He calls you to knock down hells gates as others hide behind golden walls.
Jesus not only will heal your disease but will empower you with the same power to heal others in His name.
He is The Almighty GOD....He Is JESUS!!!!!!
He is The Alpha..The Omega. The Beginning and The End.
He is Healer..Deliverer. Advocate..Strengthener...Protector..Provider..Friend..Father...LORD and Savior

What or Who is YOUR Refuge and Strength?

Psalm 46 (AMP)

 1GOD IS our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.
    2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas,
    3Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
    4There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.
    5God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning].
    6The nations raged, the kingdoms tottered and were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
    7The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our Fortress and High Tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
    8Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has wrought desolations and wonders in the earth.
    9He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow into pieces and snaps the spear in two; He burns the chariots in the fire.
    10Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!
    11The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!


Haggai 2:6-7

New King James Version (NKJV)
6 “For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.



There are many things that man runs to in a time of  personal trouble and temptation. Some run back to their comfort zone. Some run to drugs to escape. Some run to sexual pleasure or a person that makes them feel good. Some run to alcohol, food, pleasure..etc..etc. 

In times of  civil and national trouble some run to their own thoughts on politics and morality. They sternly take up a position and blame whoever is not in agreement with their point of view.  They blame religion, the left wing,the right wing or whoever they  can look to as a scape goat for the trouble they are seeing and feeling.

And when world wide calamity and war seems to be building, as the contractions of a world at war begin, many many are running out of places to run. Many are running out of people to blame. And many more will ultimately  lose hope, that there is any hope left.

Now you may be reading this as a brother and sister in Christ and think that I have unsaved mankind in mind as I write this, BUT YOU WOULD BE MISTAKEN.

There has been and there is an ever growing number of Christians that have many other things as their refuge and strength instead of The Lord and His Word. Far too many  people who proclaim Christ as savior have politicians, denominations, the government, their pet doctrines, belief statements  and yes even sins of the flesh and heart,as their refuge and strength.

We see it when there is a shaking in the world and instead of hearing The Word and Gods promises proclaimed from pulpits and Christians mouths, we hear  blame, fear,unbelief. We hear political talking points. We hear one denomination mocking another. 

But, before I go too far into a world view. Let me bring it back down to YOU.  What or who do you run to in a time of trouble personally? When your soul and emotions are hurting, scared, at a place of unease, what does your heart turn to in that time?

Oh my friend He is very present. More present than that glass of wine. More present than that cookie. More present than even your own body that can be used to escape for a few moments of pleasure.

Just turn to Him with all your heart, trust in Him with all your heart. Open your heart. He is ABBA FATHER! A perfect daddy who cares and is full of blessings, full of all you need to be comforted and protected in a time of trouble.

As the scripture says above, there is coming a world wide time of trouble. A war like we have never seen. A shaking of all the elements. A removal of all things that man thinks he can trust in, hide in. 

Will we as The Church be ready...scratch that. Will YOU as a Christian be ready to be a place of refuge for your family and neighbors. Will you show the confidence you have in Christ, demonstrate the POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION? 

Or will you be one mourns as the world mourns? I just want to say that this is coming from The Spirit as He teaches me, as I type. I am asking myself the same questions. 

Do we really believe His Word? Then we must prepare our hearts for the very real shaking of all things that can be shaken...but we will not be shaken if we are standing on the ONE AND ONLY THING THAT CAN NOT BE SHAKEN...OUR FAITH IN HIM,HIS NAME AND HIS WORD!

Hold On

This is going to be a week that will shift the course of nations. Hold on and pray for mercy. You cant kick down walls of protection and boundaries set up by God, without letting His enemy in.

The Root



This root was once a beautiful flower that bloomed year after year. However it was growing on the back side of our neighbors shed in an unseen area that no one could see and no one ever took care of. We could see it from our back yard, but no one else could.

So year after year my wife would ask if I would ask the neighbor if we could dig it up and replant it, so we could take care of it and put it in a nice garden. Two years ago we got new neighbors and I finally agreed to ask, or she ask, I can’t remember.

Well the neighbor didn’t care at all, so we dug it up and planted it in our garden. We took really good care of it. It was all for nothing. Almost immediately it began to die. No matter what we did, it didn’t work.

This dead root is what is left of it. Now instead being able to enjoy looking at it every year, it is forever gone.

The Lord really spoke to me through this about discernment and prayer. When things, people or whatever need to be left right where they are, even if it doesn’t look like they are in a place they should be. If they are flourishing and blooming every year, should we really uproot them, in order to replant them in a more visible comfortable place?

And concerning things and even ministers that we covet to see on “our land”, are they really meant to be there, or can we draw them in, just to see them wither on our vine because we wanted them so badly?
