God is an Early Bird


This is not what I wrote for today. God had other plans and he had them early.

If you want to know more of how God speaks hopefully this will help.

Let me back up a few days.

Don’t take for granted anything that might appear inconsequential or as a typical everyday something you saw.

For instance; the other day I “just happened” to turn the TV channel to Daystar. Now I know many of you believe Christian television is a hoax, joke or money making venture for false teachers, etc. That may be true in some instances but God gave us technology for his use. Dr. Mike Murdock once said, “Christian television is one of the devil’s worst enemies.”  Dr. Billy Graham eluded to this same ideology about computers years ago.  It is apparent the enemy has used it for his own deceitful gain but he has lost that battle.

While it was on Daystar it showed that this week on the “Joni Table Talk” John Paul Jackson would appear. Knowing the schedule was in the back of my mind but it didn’t register God was telling me to watch for it.

If you don’t know who John Paul Jackson is, then you should.  He is an international Prophet and Dream Interpreter anointed by God. He is what is referred to as “an 11th hour baby.” Please google him to read his testimony.  It is well worth the time.

God must get up a whole lot earlier than I do these days. He knows since I basically came home to work, I am not a morning person not that I ever was but he isn’t on my schedule.

Moving out of bed around 7am I made it to the coffee pot to get a caffeine jolt to wake me up. Sitting down with my drink in hand I turned the TV on to Fox and Friends. Half awake and half interested in the reporting I drank a few gulps of coffee and mumbled to myself it was too early.

Precisely at 7:10am all of a sudden “John Paul Jackson’s” name burst into my brain/heart like the AF base morning “Reveille.” Talk about waking up fast.

Immediately God reminded me that JPJ was on Joni. Switching to Daystar I knew before I did it he was her guest this morning.  God wanted me to hear what he had to say for 3 reasons.

  1. Confirmation of issues God has been speaking to me about for the last few years about our government
  2. God wants his people to know he uses Christian TV to speak to us because he created it.
  3. God wants his people to listen and take seriously his prophets and what he is telling them because many Christians question his anointed ones. Unbelief in his modern day prophets is hindering the movement of God. If you want to know more of what God is saying then buck up and read websites like http://wwwtheelijahlist.com. 

The following were the main points JPJ announced that God has spoken to him specifically about to grant to those who follow him the truth since we are not hearing it publicly.

  1. ACA: the so called Affordable Care Act is not at all about health care, or health insurance. It is not about helping anyone.  It was designed specifically for this present administration to gain control of the people.
  2. The attack on Benghazi was not a spontaneous reaction to a video. Islamic extremists pre-planned it months in advance.
  3. Islamic nations have not been radical as many thought but have fallen into the extremists hands making them that way.
  4. Our government, including Republicans/Democrats and the Obama Administration are not leaders but politicians functioning mostly to keep their jobs. Trust and politics no longer go together.
  5. There are many in the government, IRS, military and other political entities doing everything possible to get rid of God. This includes monuments, historical landscapes and local branches being infiltrated to the anti-God movement.
  6. Do not trust the IRS. It is totally corrupt lending itself to pull down, ruin or destroy any group connected to Christianity through the 501C application.
  7. Weather; storms of all kinds have increased in strength to the point the levels of classification will be forced to change.
  8. North Pole is moving at a rate of 40-50 miles a year now which is unprecedented. This is and will cause major problems with GPS systems in cars, trucks, etc., which will affect overall transportation around the world.

At the end JPJ was questioned about the ACA website. His response was this:

“That was God’s mercy on this nation.”

God is warning us, giving us truth and revealing his grace and mercy upon us even though we are in knee deep trouble. But, he is not finished yet with America; in fact he is just beginning which is what JPJ was eluding to.

Last note: My take on his prophetic words along with others who have written future accounts of prophetic knowledge is there is still much to be done. God is just now beginning the greatest harvest of souls in the history of the world. He is so loving he wants every possible account of saving the lost to happen down to the last sheep.

A personal prophecy: A specific prophecy God has transcribed to me over many years is slowly beginning to take root but I don’t see this happening any time soon.  Once it takes root it will be many years after that for it to come to pass. It concerns a person very close to me.

If Jesus is coming any time in the next 40 -50 years then that prophecy will not occur.

We need to wake up before 7:10 am people.

Article by John Paul Jackson


God is really doing something here. Reading this by John Paul Jackson after posting my latest blog it answers exactly what I have been getting at. Did God create evil? The answer is on this page.

The Obedient Heart

Written by John Paul Jackson

The Obedient Heart

Did God create evil?

If God is thoroughly good and there is no “bad” in Him, why did He create the angel Lucifer, who later became Satan? Some people look at this equation of good versus evil and conclude Satan must not actually exist, because an all-perfect, completely good God could not have created evil. Have you ever considered this before? What was your conclusion?

My conclusion is that evil was not created. It is the darkest form of the absence of God. Just as darkness is the absence of light, sin (evil) is the absence of God.

If evil were a created substance, like a rock or a plant, then yes—I couldn’t imagine there being a devil because God could not create evil. But evil is not created; it is the absence of God.

If we refuse to do what God wants, evil begins to show its face in our lives. This is a case of simple cause and effect. The closer we are to God, the more we look like Him. The further we are from God, the less we look like Him and the more at home we are with darkness.

Sin and Its Effects on the Earth

Solomon wrote in Psalm 127:1:

Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.

God is our protector. We need Him. His hand guides us, disciplines us, protects us, draws us closer to Him and comforts us when we are hurting. When God lifts His hand because we have turned away from Him to serve another god (such as money, power, etc.), we suffer. Every time we yield to temptation, we are obeying Satan. This is exactly what Adam and Eve did. Satan became their god, and God the Father then withdrew His presence from them. The absence of God is painful, and we can see the results of sin everywhere we look, including the earth itself.

Sin disrupts the created order. Disorder causes something not to function as it is intended to function.

For example, plates in the earth that were created to work in harmony now struggle against one another in disunity, and they cause earthquakes, tidal waves, tsunamis and volcanic activity. Jet streams shift and begin to flow where they weren’t flowing before; there are changes in weather patterns.

Sin causes the earth to become a much more dangerous place because it was created to operate in harmony with God. The same is true with our personal lives. Sin causes us to be dangerous beings because we become self-focused. When the enemy has room to attack, he certainly will, and he does so in a multitude of areas.

The Power of Obedience

If sin draws us away from God and His protection, what draws us closer to God? Our obedience.

Many of us talk about wanting to be like Jesus. If we really do want that, obedience is the place to start—because it is the place where Jesus started. We will never be closer to God than the degree of our obedience:

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. ~ Philippians 2:8

The truth is, we cannot become like Jesus without an obedient heart.

Jesus told His disciples, “If you love Me, keep My commandments” (John 14:15). He did not say this in an attempt to manipulate them into doing what He wanted, nor did He intend it as a threat. Again, it is simple cause and effect. The heart of obedience and submission is the heart of a friend — someone who loves deeply and is deeply loved. God’s commands are not burdensome (1 John 5:3). His “yoke” is easy, and His burden is light. He gives us rest for our souls (Matthew 11:28–30).

As we spend time with God and truly begin to know Him, the enemy loses the “space” that allowed him to attack us before. Every time we say, “Yes,” to God, we come that much closer to Him. He molds us into His image. He purifies us. We feel His hope even in the deep, hidden parts of our souls. His light increases in our lives, and the shame and desperation of the world are driven away.

If you’d like to learn more about how the earth is affected by sin, John Paul has a 4 CD teaching entitled Matters of the Earth, that explains how the earth responds to both sin (negative) and righteousness (positive). For an in depth teaching on the power of an obedient lifestyle, check out Preparing for your Visitation 3 CD Set. Both teachings are available on CD or MP3 download.

“Thinkin”


In light of Hurricane Sandy we pray Heavenly Father for protection, safety and provisions for all in the path of this storm. We pray for aid to support those in need during and after the storm passes. We thank you Father for watching over our nation during this very important time in history. In Jesus name. Amen

I have a bad habit of thinkin that some of my thinkin is just me. You would think after so many years of thinkin it might be God I would get my thinkin straight!

How did you like that one?

When I first heard about “Sandy” the unwanted visitor ramming her way up the East coast, my “thinkin” was, “is this the October surprise I have been reading about?”

Of course, as usual I laughed at myself for “thinkin” such a ridiculous thought.

As the up-to-date mortal that I aim to be, watching the news/ weather lately has been foremost on my mind; partly due to where we live. Actually it is a “given” here living so close to the coast.

But….before the storm became the monster she is, I listened to a long prophecy given by John Paul Jackson.  This was like last Friday. I found his 2012 prophecies he gave in January of this year of all God has told him for the future.

Ironically or not, one of the main prophecies was hurricanes would be so huge they would form up to 500 miles in width. Ugh….”Sandy” was larger than that wasn’t she?

We have had high winds, it is again very cloudy and ominous. From Washington, DC to Columbia, SC is 483 miles. From Rhode Island to Columbia is 874 miles.

Then, as I was reading the “Reader” a dear friend blogger posted the latest from Joel Rosenberg.  Ah – ha! That was it!

The following is the link to Lyn Leahz blog;

http://lynleahz.com/2012/10/29/gods-october-surprise-hurricane-sandy-poses-worst-case-scenario-says-experts/

Evidently God has shown numerous other prophets about this “October Surprise.” Not giving any indication of the surprise itself, my “thinkin cap” began to roll out different scenarios like:

Jesus is coming back?  No….there is more to be fulfilled

Not another terrorist attack

Party at Chucky Cheese

Earthquake

Super storm-hybrid winter storm-nor’easter?

Whoever thought up this combination of names should be a meteorologist, weather-girl, weather-guy, storm chaser, hurricane specialist, etc.

Now I am not one who believes in “coincidences.”  This storm is no coincidence. Actually and I know no one was here to hear me say this, but I thought out-loud if that is possible, “Is this really heading near Washington?” (Friday)

I first heard of an “October Surprise” many months ago. Maybe it is me, but I have always thought of a surprise as something like a present, cake, chocolate brownies; ok. Enough of that. A surprise to me is good? Fun? Happy day?

“Sandy” is not a happy day. Or fun. She has barreled her way through many homes, businesses, schools, churches and the livelihood of great Americans.

Now, before I read Joel Rosenberg’s blog on Lyn’s blog, I had already thought the same things he wrote like:

It means for the first time in 27 years Wall Street closed unplanned except for 9/11.

“Sandy” is a storm that has hasn’t happened in the lifetime of most of us.

The Weather Channel has seen most possible weather formations; but never one like this.

The off possibility a hurricane and a nor’easter running into each other? At the exact same day and time? A week before the most important Presidential election in history?

God has allowed “Sandy” to pay the East coast of America  ( the original 13 colonies) an undesirable appearance.

God allowed a hurricane of substantial strength at the end of October end up near Washington, D. C.

God allowed a nor’easter to come down from Canada and merge with “Sandy” and shut down the Federal Government.

Are you thinkin what I am thinkin?
