Walk Humbly with Me



 April 11, 2013 - [o4.11.2o13]

Walk Humbly with Me
Since you are willing to learn, I teach you and instruct you in the way you should go.  Some of the lessons will be quite painful, but when you humble yourself in My sight, be assured that I shall lift you up strongly and place you upon solid ground.

Do not sit under condemnation for the mere reason that you are learning wisdom, at the cost of humility and love.  This is why the lessons are painful.  The flesh must die to self continuously, when you walk in love as well as humility.  Pride longs to rule and show itself strong.

Yet be not deceived; love judges righteous judgment and seeks only to please Me and not the arm of flesh.  Those who are Mine have secretly and earnestly prayed to be without spot or blemish, to be made worthy, perfect and whole.

To be dead to self, cleansed, purified and sanctified is to be ready to be filled to overflowing with My power and My glory.  Also be assured that much of what is going on in the headlines is a distraction for what is going on behind closed doors and within secret meetings.

Indeed, you must be aware of all that is going on in the world, within your own countries, within your own neighborhoods and within your own households.  Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves, for you are amongst wolves in the nation.


There are enemies in the camp.  As My Son knew, you also must know the Judas’ of your day, within your own surroundings.  All of My people come to times of serious decision-making, feeling pressure to make choices that they know are going to cost them.

Close family members and friends will endeavor to sway you to their line of thinking.  Some will oppose you and few, if any, may fully understand, especially if what I request of you does not fit into the category of what people deem normal.

It can be overwhelming, but those who come to Me, seeking My counsel will know what to do.  Obedience brings them peace, for things fall into place when good counsel is followed.

So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  [Is 55:11]

My Word and My Spirit never conflict, for truth flows forth, absolute omni potens, for I AM El Shaddai (all-powerful, Omnipotence).  
Continue in seeking Me, in prayer, in the reading of My word and peace shall reside in you.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [Jn 14:;27]

Keep aware, very aware, but do not be afraid.  What must come, will come.  Pray and keep focused, becoming increasingly observant.  A prayer for wisdom, knowledge and understanding is answered, when it comes from a heart of humility and love.

Do not be wise in your own eyes, but fear Me, understanding My power and authority.  Depart from evil and it shall be your health and strength.  Wait patiently upon Me, especially in My silence.  

I AM doing things that you cannot comprehend or understand.  By faith and not by sight…I honor those who walk in such a way.

Knowing that I love you; always remember that I AM for you and not against you.  This shall surely establish you and keep you in perfect peace.  Keep your eyes fixed on Me, laying all your concerns down before Me- in trust.  

You will know what to do in days ahead.  Believe Me for full healing and restoration to the Body.  Think upon Job and Naaman, the mighty man of valor.  Repentance and humility restored them both, as they listened to Me and obeyed.

Consider Job first…

His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen [now] stick out.  Yea, his soul draws near unto the grave and his life to the destroyers.  

His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s: he shall return to the days of his youth: he shall pray to God (Yhwh), and He will be favorable to him: and He shall see his face with joy: for He will render unto man His righteousness. 
[Job 33:21-22; 25-26]

And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.  So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning… [ ]   [Job 42:10, part of 12]

Now consider Naaman…

Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honorable because by him the Lord had given deliverance to Syria: he was a mighty man in valor, but he was a leper. [2Kin 5:1]

But Naaman was wroth (angry) and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, he (Elisha) will surely come out to me and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand (lay his hand) over the place and recover the leper.



Then he went down and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean (healed).  

And he returned to the man of God, he (Naaman) and all his company and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel: now therefore, I pray you, take a blessing of your servant.  [2Kin 5:11, 14-15]

Danger approaches quickly.  The overcoming weapons for fear are to trust and believe.  Believe Me for the things I say to you.  My people are going to rise up in My glory, in My power and with My strength.  

They shall do great things and through it all, I shall be glorified.  Fear not death, for I alone hold that hour in My hand.  Trust Me to be with you in all things.

For they overcame him, by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, and they loved not their life unto death.  [Rev 12:11]

Verily, verily (surely, surely) I say to you, he that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto My Father. And whatsoever you shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If you shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.  If you love Me, keep My commandments. 

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear has torment.  He that fears is not made perfect (mature, whole) in love.  We love Him because He first loved us.  [Jn 14:12-14; 1Jn 4:6-7]

Day by day, step by step I shall direct you.  Keep watchful and keep praying.  I AM with you, even when you do not realize it and even when I AM silent.  

Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I AM with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  [Mat 28:19, 20]
I have shown you what is good, and what do I require of you?  I require that you do justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with Me. [Mic 6:8]  Selah

Battle above the Clouds - Part 15

 April 9, 2013 - [o4.o9.2o13

If you have not read the word that I posted yesterday, you may find it here


Battle above the Clouds - Part 15

Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD has not done it?  Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He reveals His secret unto His servants the prophets

The lion has roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD has spoken, who can but prophesy?   [Amos 3:6-8]


It is because of Jesus the Christ (Y'shua Ha'Mashiach) that we can hear from the Father, the Great Spirit Chief.  He did say that His sheep know His voice and another they will not follow.  The Father wants us aware of what is going on, so that we will come to Him in prayer, knowing that He will still our fears, keep us stabilized in His Son, Jesus the Christ (Y'shua) and direct our steps.


Economy


In Part 14  of Battle, I briefly spoke about President Putin urging Russian officials to close all foreign bank accounts by July 1, 2013 or face dismissal.  Source: The Washington Post


I queried readers as to whether the order was a result of the global financial crisis, even though the decree followed on the heels of North Korea's threat of war with United States (and South Korea).


Much to my delight, I saw that Joseph Herrin (a brother in Christ) expounded on Putin on his blog.  It contains interesting information, as well as an exhortation to the brethren, which you can find at his Parables blog.



We have been hearing about Cyprus, with the startling news that the that a bailout agreement would cause the depositors in the Bank of Cyprus to lose from 30-40% of deposits over 100,000 Euro.  

More news on the business side of the global economy brings China into the picture.  

"WASHINGTON – The debt “bomb” of the People’s Republic of China is about to go “bang” as the country goes through its own little-known banking crisis, coupled with overcapacity and inflation, a prominent Hong Kong economist says in a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Larry Lang said that China’s banking crisis began last year with stocks in the Bank of Communications dropping below book value.

He attributes the banking crisis to local governments around the country defaulting on their debts, from Shanghai to Sichuan and Yunnan provinces.



The banking crisis that has been going on in China out of public sight has occurred in some 16 banks where stock prices have fallen below book value, Lang said, something which hasn’t happened in other countries, underscoring its potential severity."   Source:  World News Daily-WND

 

The Activist Post reports that five of the top 10 economies have dropped the US dollar and will 'no longer use the dollar as an intermediary currency for trade'.  

The report came out when Australia (ranked 12 in economy) joined up with the other nations.  China (ranked 2 behind U.S.) is on the list, along with Japan (3), Brazil (6), India (9) and Russia (10).

"America's imperialism, combined with its ultra-fiat status of unending debt creation, appears to have created a final downward spiral that has caused many of the top economies to abandon a sinking ship. It might not be too much longer before the rest follow suit. Now might be a great time to consider diversifying into other currencies, and even digital currencies, to mitigate growing losses in the U.S. dollar."

 On the Homeland





People are running with an article put out titled “Army Labeled Evangelicals as Religious Extremists”, such as the news report posted by Fox News, or this article “Army Reserve Warns Evangelical Christians at Top of ‘Extremist’ List?” posted by End Time Headline.


“A U.S. Army Reserve training brief on extremism and extremist organizations puts evangelical Christianity at the top of the list of groups soldiers should watch out for, and avoid. 


According to the Power Point presentation, obtained and posted online by legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, the Army Reserve in Pennsylvania considers evangelical Christians, Catholics, and Mormons as dangerous as the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, and Hamas.” 


The articles are going viral, as ‘Christians’ see the report as a warning about the persecution of the saints that is coming to the United States.  We know that indeed, persecution is coming to our continent, but the title given to the reports are rather misleading.


A careful read of the entire article gives further explanation.


“George Wright, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon, confirmed the presentation was produced by an individual without consent from or knowledge of the Army's chain of command. 

The presentation is more than a year old, Wright said: "After receiving a single complaint following the presentation, this person deleted the slide, and it was never again shown. … This person has apologized for any offense it may have caused, and we consider the matter closed."


We know from the Word of God that persecution is coming and given the signs all around us, it is fast approaching.  What I mean by 'running' with an article is that an order has 'not yet' been executed by Governor Hinkenlooper, but it would be wise to keep a listening ear to the ground.

It is true that some county sheriffs have verbalized their stance on the Second Amendment and their willingness to defend it, as well as the fact that the state of Colorado has passed 'sweeping gun measures' recentlySo, we watch and pray.


A different article, posted by Joe Newby, a journalist for The Examiner wrote that a Colorado undersheriff warned that "state police and Homeland Security are to "target Christians".  The full story can be read at the Examiner link provided, but it part, Newby writes the following.

"According to a letter written by Ron Trowbridge, undersheriff with the Prowers County, Colo., Sheriff's Office, Christians who believe the Bible is the literal word of God and others who do not agree with the changes taking place in America could find themselves under scrutiny by law enforcement authorities and Homeland Security, Steven H. Ahle wrote at Red Statements Friday.

Trowbridge, a law enforcement officer with many years of experience, told Ahle that he recently attended a training session in La Junta, Color., where he says, Colorado State Patrol Trooper Joe Kluczynski gave a 2-hour presentation on the "sovereign citizen" movement. 

"Kluczynski spent most of his two hours focusing on how, in his view and apparently the view of Homeland Security, people turn to the sovereign citizen movement," he wrote.

According to the FBI, the "sovereign citizen movement" is made up of "anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or 'sovereign' from the United States."

These people, the FBI says, do not believe they have to answer to any government authority and can cause a number of problems for law enforcement authorities.  But according to Trowbridge's letter, Kluczynski went much further, including "those who believe America was founded on godly principles, Christians who take the Bible literally, and 'fundamentalists'."

There are definitely warnings presenting themselves, as to the changing attitude amongst lower level government representatives and law enforcement agencies.  Again, watch and pray, as the Bible exhorts us.

 

 Re: Guns

Another report circulating the internet via emails and posts is the following:



Upon researching, most sites are using the word 'rumor', so it is not a fact at this point in time.  Is it a possibility?  Yes it is, but at the same time, we must realize that there is a well-intentioned push to rile up the people, to bring about a civil war.

Re: Civil War Instigated by Anonymous


I had watched a video posted on BIN (Before Its News) that someone had brought to my attention.  It was disturbing to me, as the group called Anonymous was 'in the face' about starting up a civil war.

The 'Anonymous' speaker derails the government and instigates the citizens of America (United States) to overthrow the government with a civil war.  I cannot help but wonder if the person was not planted in the "Anonymous" group by the global elite.


 
Rumblings of EMP

There are several sites that are reporting about a satellite that North Korea launched last year, with a possible nuclear weapon payload, which could be detonated anyplace on the planet, including the U.S.



“The fact that U.S. military officials are expressing quiet but increasing concern that North Korea could launch an EMP attack has raised alarms over the preservation of the U.S. national grid and such critical infrastructures as communications, energy, food and water delivery and space systems.

In addition to elements within the U.S. intelligence community, retired Ambassador Henry F. Cooper has warned of the prospect of an EMP attack from North Korea.


He pointed to the recent orbiting of a North Korean satellite which weighed a few hundred pounds. When a nuclear weapon payload that fits that weight constraint is joined with its recently successful three-stage missile, he said it could be detonated above the atmosphere over any place on earth, including the U.S.”

I have no sense of urgency in my spirit about today, as today is the day reported that an EMP could occur.  There has been speculation also around Kim Jong-un’s warning to British and Russian embassies to remove its people, as he could not guarantee their safety after April 10

There have been countless dreams, visions and warning from brethren over the past decades regarding attacks on America, but they certainly have been escalating in frequency and the number of believers experiencing them.



Meanwhile, Iran, who strongly supports North Korea, continues to build five more nuclear reactors, despite the recent earthquake.  Reactors in Quake-prone area – Reuters UK

Laser Weapon Demonstration



Although the video was only posted on April 8 (two days ago), the demonstration actually took place a little less than a year ago.  It would be interesting to find out how the system has been perfected, or even what weapons are not being revealed to the public.  Remember the Trojan horse?  After all, who reveals everything they have or know to the people of their country, and indirectly, the enemy?


Under the Youtube video is a short description.


“SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Jul. 30, 2012) The Laser Weapon System (LaWS) temporarily installed aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Dewey (DDG 105) in San Diego, Calif., is a technology demonstrator built by the Naval Sea Systems Command from commercial fiber solid state lasers, utilizing combination methods developed at the Naval Research Laboratory. 


LaWS can be directed onto targets from the radar track obtained from a MK 15 Phalanx Close-In Weapon system or other targeting source. The Office of Naval Research's Solid State Laser (SSL) portfolio includes LaWS development and upgrades providing a quick reaction capability for the fleet with an affordable SSL weapon prototype. 


This capability provides Navy ships a method for Sailors to easily defeat small boat threats and aerial targets without using bullets. (U.S. Navy video by Office of Naval Research/ Released)”

 Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man; Which imagine mischief in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.  [Ps 140:1, 2]


Let us continue in prayer and leaning on the Lord to guide us, so great is His faithfulness.

Or what king, going to make war against another king, sits not down first, and consults whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that comes against him with twenty thousand?  [Lik 14:31]


These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful. [Rev 17:14]
