Hearing the Voice of Our Lord – A Matter of Life and Death, Part II

Our Lord has raised up watchmen and women to guide us on the narrow path and warn believers and those who don’t know Him of things coming to our nation. Four of these Spirit-led individuals and their messages from the Lord are featured in is blog post “Hearing the Voice of Our Lord – A Matter of Life and Death, Part II”. They are Spirit-led believers who do not seek fame or fortune, only to carry out the will of God.

“Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret [what He plans to do] to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7

Here is “Hearing the Voice of Our Lord – A Matter of Life and Death, Part II”.

As in all things, hold these up to the Lord for confirmation. Hotlinks are provided, so be sure to consider subscribing to their (free) blogs to receive updates as they are posted.

We were created to live at this time, to occupy until He comes, and be a witness to our Lord to all who He brings across our path. And always remember that the safest place to be is in the center of our Lord’s will.

Have a blessed day, and always remember Who is really in charge.

Hearing the Voice of Our Lord – A Matter of Life and Death, Part I

Dear Friends and Family:

Our nation is facing World War III, hyperinflation, famine, and pestilence like none of us have ever experienced in our lives. We are entering the End Times prophesied in the Bible, and soon dramatic, life-changing events will take place in America and other nations.

So it is more critical than ever to draw close to the Lord for His comfort, guidance, and direction. It may save your life or mine, as we will see in Parts I and II of this issue of Life in the Spirit. Just as the Holy Spirit warned, comforted, and guided the apostles through treacherous times and situations, He will do the same for us if we will seek Him in total humility. Here is “Hearing the Voice of Our Lord – A Matter of Life and Death, Part I”. Part II will be coming soon.

This blog is for the remnant Bride of Christ and all who seek the Truth. As in all things, question everything and take it to the Lord for confirmation.

Always remember – we were created to live at this time, to be a witness to our Lord to all who He brings across our path. And that the safest place to be is in the center of our Lord’s will.

Have a blessed day, and always remember Who is really in charge.

God is at Work in Ukraine – Reports from the Front Lines

We have all seen horrific images of the war in Ukraine, how people’s lives and communities have been severely damaged or destroyed. But those don’t tell the full story. The people of God are shining forth as lights in the brutal darkness of war, providing for the physical and spiritual needs of the Ukrainian people.

The suffering and carnage are real, but what is rarely reported in the Western media are stories of compassion and care extended to people in need by Christians, and even supernatural deliverance. In accounts that read like Old Testament stories, during the first days of the invasion, Christians in L’viv reported seeing Russian missiles disappear in mid-air and Russian columns getting lost.

Stories abound of the Lord working through His people. One group of people, including a Christian, took cover in a two-story building. During the bombing, he prayed for protection. A rocket broke through the house, exited through the wall and landed in the yard without exploding. No one lost their life. 

In the first days of the war, before international agencies arrived, churches all across Ukraine responded to the cry for help. Within 48 hours after the war began, they were transformed into refugee centers, bomb shelters and warehouses for food and medicines. Vans and buses were mobilized on evacuation missions, driven by church volunteers.

Those seeking help were welcomed into churches, where they experienced genuine care among Ukraine’s Christians. Unseen before the war, an unprecedented collaboration arose among various denominations. Receiving the physical aid they needed, refugees developed a hunger for the Gospel. In countries where the refugees have arrived, the gospel is spreading, certain proof that God can work all things together for good. Small prayer groups and bible studies are growing at an explosive rate as people’s hearts are opening to hear about how to have a relationship with God.

In his sovereignty, God allows man to sin and to war against each other. Christ didn’t come to eliminate suffering; He came to fill it with His presence. The task ahead to rebuild lives is monumental, but it becomes feasible when we know that God is at work through His church. Even in the midst of war, His love overpowers the rage of Satan. Let us go forth to minister to those in need, knowing that the light of Christ always shines most brightly in the darkness.

Urgent Prayer Request – War is Coming to America

Dear Friends and Family:

This is an urgent prayer request:

  • for the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, NATO, and the U.S. to negotiate peace in Ukraine before there is further bloodshed, and before the war spreads to NATO and America, and
  • for our leaders at the local, state, and national levels and all of us who live in the U.S. to repent from our sins and draw close to the Lord, seeking His mercy, guidance, and peace.

The article below provides background for this prayer request. (Be sure to watch the short Youtube video: “Sarmatushka”.)

Many thanks and have a blessed day in the Lord.

War is Coming to America

Russia has accused the U.S. and Poland of attacking military bases inside Russia. This could cause WWIII. Russian Vice-Chairman Medvedev stated: “We have proof that the U.S. and Poland hit targets inside our territory. Legitimate military targets us may now include military and political leadership of Ukraine and its allies.” This includes Washington, D.C.

If Russia decides to target NATO targets, it is on. They have laid out the legal ground work to justify their attacks that will lead to WWIII. This war is about to escalate to a new dimension, and it won’t be good for us in America.

EMERGENCY ALERT!!! Russia Declares the USA and Poland Legitimate Targets for Attacking Russian Soil

Emergency Alert!!! Putin Says Russia is Fighting All of NATO

‘Russia is now at war with NATO and the West’: Putin has taken conflict in Ukraine ‘to a different stage’, senior EU official admits following Germany’s decision to supply tanks

The Russian media declared a Russia – NATO conflict is imminent – a matter of weeks. All of our U.S. administration has said WE ARE NOT GOING TO LET UKRAINE LOSE THE WAR. This means that NATO will be fighting Russia directly. It means that our bases and aircraft carriers will become targets worldwide. There are also credible reports of British and American special forces already directly involved in the war in various capacities. Before the war, Ukraine’s defense budget was about $6 billion a year, but Joe Biden has pumped in over $100 billion alone to Ukraine.

Given the recent Zelenskyy lovefest with Congress, do you think the Biden regime will let the 40,000 U.S. troops and 700 Abrams tanks sit across the border in Poland and watch Russia destroy the Ukrainian military?

Russia Deploys Air Defenses Around Moscow, Say War With NATO in the Next Few Weeks

Russian Donbass Commander: “Nuclear escalation inevitable”; Elite Belarusian Forces begin staging for sweep into Western Ukraine

HOLY $%$# US TROOPS Approach Russian Border, Moscow Preps Nuclear Shelters

300,000 Russian troops are in Ukraine, and another 150,000 will soon be deployed there as well. They are now talking openly about Chinese troops, Iranian troops, and North Korean troops going into the war in Ukraine on the side of Russia. RUSSIA IS GOING ALL IN. They are on a WWIII footing now. They are serious, and this is the most serious time we have ever had in history.

Russia has hypersonic missiles capable of reaching the U.S. The SARMAT weighs 200 tons, has a range of 11,000 miles, can deliver 15 Avangard hypersonic glide vehicles, each with nuclear payloads, and destroy an area the size of Texas.

Ukraine War: Russia’s 2nd Regiment Of Avangard Hypersonic Missile, With ‘Mach 27’ Speed, Takes Up Combat Duty (That’s 21,913 mph!)

Watch the short YouTube video: “Sarmatushka”. No English subtitles, but you will understand it. Some song text: “The Russian Sarmat is ready to strike our enemy, to turn the enemy into dust. It has one joy – to disturb NATO’s sleep.”

Truth About Tanks: How NATO Lied Its Way to Disaster in Ukraine

It’s TOO LATE for NATO to win the war against Russia… here’s why

This War is Not About Freedom and Democracy

Former congressman and OMB Director David Stockman states: “This misbegotten war is not about freedom and democracy in the slightest. Ukraine is every bit as authoritarian and corrupt as Russia, and likely now more so. All of the opposition press has been shut down or taken over by the state; most of Zelensky’s opponents have been arrested or killed; there are no longer any true opposition parties; the national security apparatus has been largely purged of dissenters; and Zelensky has lately even attacked the Russian Orthodox Church.”

Why Did Russia Invade Ukraine

Of course Russia invaded Ukraine. After we instigated a coup in Ukraine 8 years ago to install a pro-western puppet, we moved missiles within a 10-minute flight time to Moscow, an existential threat to Russia. This is very similar to our embargo of Japan in 1941, which triggered their attack on Pearl Harbor. This is realpolitik at work – push, push, and push an opponent until he strikes back, then blame him for starting the war. (The U.S. and NATO also instituted sanctions against their oil and gas exports, denied them access to the SWIFT international financial system, and sabotaged their Nord Stream pipelines, all acts of war.)  

Let us not forget how JFK threatened Russia with nuclear war when Russia moved missiles to Cuba, 75 miles off of our shores. Unlike Biden, when Putin draws a red line, he means it.

There could be a nuclear war that kills hundreds of millions of people. This is coming, and looks like it is coming very soon.

Words from Watchmen and Women

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”                                                         John 16:12-13

Respect for Marriage Act – an Abomination to Our Lord

Meanwhile, U.S. Congress just passed the Respect for Marriage Act, embracing same sex marriage. This along with abortion, is an attack on the family and an abomination to the sovereign, living God, who ordained marriage to be between one man and one woman. Since the Biblical standard was rejected, what is next – legalizing pedophilia, group marriage, or bestiality? Meanwhile, Russia has outlawed all publicity promoting a homosexual lifestyle.

If we as a nation do not fall on our face in sincere repentance for our many sins before the God of the universe, He will remove His hand of protection upon our nation, and we will see war on our soil, and death on our doorsteps. Let us tremble, for God is just, and humbly pray for His mercy and peace.

“If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”   II Chronicles 7:14

War is Coming to America and Related Issues

December 19, 2022

Dear Friends:

War is coming to America unless we as the people of America repent and cry out to our Lord for mercy. We are entering the End Times, and it is critical to draw close to our Lord in humility, seeking His guidance and mercy for our nation.

This blog is for the remnant Bride of Christ and all who seek the Truth. Most people will this as conspiracy theories, or just unbelievable, like most of the children of Israel viewed the Old Testament prophecies. But those prophecies were proven to be correct as they became fulfilled, and we will see how these events take place as well. As in all things, question everything and take it to the Lord for confirmation.

This blog post includes War is Coming to America, A Cold, Dark Winter is Coming, What God Thinks About Christmas, and How to Prepare. You can see it here:

Finally, it is important to remember that we were created to live at this time, to be a witness to our Lord to all who He brings across our path.

Have a blessed day, and always remember Who is really in charge.

We Will Own Nothing and Be Happy

If we are to reach others effectively, it is important to know what they are thinking and what they are drawn to, so we can respond to them where they are.

One of the most attractive and deadly strategies from the Father of Lies is utopianism – the notion that we can create heaven on earth (without Christ).  Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto describes how socialism will replace capitalism, then communism will replace socialism. Marx stated that in communism, the state (police) will wither away because everyone’s needs will be met, and crime will disappear.  This is a lie from the pit of hell, because communist regimes that have embraced this philosophy have killed over 94 million OF THEIR OWN PEOPLE.

The latest version of utopianism is “The Great Reset”, the transformation of our political, social, economic, financial, and religious systems, all in the name of sustainable development.  Planned for decades, it even includes reinventing what it means to be human through transhumanism – the merger of the physical, digital, and biological worlds through implanting technologies into our bodies that connect us electronically to the system and even change our DNA. Question: if we can be controlled by some external stimuli, are we still fully human?

“You will own nothing and be happy” states Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, author of the book: “COVID-19: The Great Reset”, and mastermind behind the World Economic Forum that brings together world leaders to promote this agenda. The quote gives us a glimpse into their plans for us. (By the way, two ways to get us to “own nothing” are to greatly increase taxes and stimulate very high inflation, both of which would require us to sell our possessions just in order to live.)

Of course as Christians we know that The Greatest Reset that ever took place was when Christ came, died for our sins, rose again, and invites us to receive Him as our Savior.  We then live a life in the Spirit, and when we step into eternity, we will go to heaven, where WE WILL OWN NOTHING AND BE (TRULY) HAPPY.  Let us go forth and share the good news with others about The Greatest Reset.

To God be the glory

A Coming Financial Crash

Dear Friends:

There are powerful indications that we will soon experience a financial crash in the United States, and probably much of the rest of the world as well. This will have huge implications for our work, our lifestyles and standard of living, our churches, and our families. So it is incumbent upon all of us to learn about this, do our own research, take it to the Lord for confirmation, and take action as appropriate.

You can learn about the Coming Financial Crash on this post of the Life in the Spirit blog here.

As always, draw close to the Lord for comfort, guidance, and peace, for “In the world you will have tribulation; be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

And watch for upcoming issues that address these issues in more detail as they emerge.

Life is short. God is great. Walk with the Lord.

The Hoofbeats Are Getting Louder PART I – The Four Seals and Horsemen

Dear Friends:

One of the most compelling images of coming events described in the book of Revelation are Christ opening seals and four horsemen riding forth, as described in Revelation 6. They are:

  • First Seal – a White Horse, ridden by a conqueror
  • Second Seal – a Red Horse bringing war
  • Third Seal – a Black Horse bringing scarcity and famine, and
  • Fourth Seal – a Pale Horse bringing widespread death on the earth.

The four horsemen have not arrived yet, but it appears they have left their stables, and are on the way. Furthermore, the rider on the white horse may have already arrived!  Fortunately, they will not all arrive at the same time. Can you hear the hoofbeats? They seem to be getting closer and closer.

These horsemen and their arrival on the scene will be described in this document, with the coming Parts II through V describing each of these horsemen in more detail. To learn more, check out this issue: “The Hoofbeats Are Getting Louder PART I”You won’t want to miss it. 

The Hoofbeats Are Getting Louder PART IDOWNLOAD

I realize there are many perspectives on the end times held by sincere Christians, and many facets yet to unfold. As always, I encourage you to QUESTION EVERYTHING, do your own research, and take this to the Lord for confirmation.

Have a blessed day, and always remember Who is really in charge.

Two Critical Events

Dear Friends:

The pace of change is accelerating, and we are seeing major events unfolding in our nation, in Europe, and in the world that will directly affect our lives.

Two events in particular could greatly impact our lives in the very near future. You can learn more about them here:

  • Our financial system in very serious trouble – Here Is What Is About To Happen, and
  • The U.S. and NATO directly entering the war with Russia in Ukraine – Urgent Russia at DEFCON II.

Please question everything, do your own research, and take these to the Lord for confirmation. Remember to draw close to the Lord for comfort, guidance, and peace, for “In the world you will have tribulation; be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

I will soon send out a more detailed analysis of these and related issues (an urgent warning), including how best to prepare.

Life is short. God is great. Walk with the Lord.
