Count The Cost of being the Lord’s

posted by PrayerWarrior

When I came to the Lord, I said Father here am I send me! He told me to count the cost, then put before my face many scriptures that showed me to really consider what it is to be used of the Lord to be called by the Lord. I will share as many as I can here with you and how it worked in my heart and mind to prepare me for a walk that was worthy of the Lord and His will and ways. He showed me one of the first things was to really consider what happens if you turn away from God and showed me 2 Peter 2:20-22

20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. They are filthy again with the cares of the world and the pursuits of this life. This life is not about us! This life is about God and how much we love Him.

If we want to spend eternity in the presence of God, then we must live only for Him, here in this time now. Think about it, why would God want anyone who does not live in Him, for Him, and their life all about seeking to know Him better? Why would He want anyone who is not barely in love with Him? Those who pursue their own pleasures in this life are not a giving lover. This is a most intimate deep relationship we are to be pursuing with God the Father, through Christ Jesus! Not just oh when I have time God, I’ll give you one day a week take it or leave it okay! That does not work.

God is looking for sold out bought up servant’s who are willing vessels for His grace. Overflowing out of our lives into others lives. He wants to pour so much into you that you have no choice but to pour out onto others, from the abundance in your heart. So He tells us to count the cost. It is up to us to do that very thing. Because as Peter showed us it is worse for those who walked with God and had a bit of knowledge of Him who did not continue in their first love of Him, and keep on pursuing Him.

He wants us to forever keep seeking after Him, through His word, through many prayers, through tons of conversation with Him. He wants a close personal relationship with each of us, that suits perfectly to who we are! That’s right God tailors your relationship by how much you give to this relationship between you and He. We set the pace of our relationship with Him, not the other way around. But Isn’t this all about searching and seeking to know the object of your desire better, the most important thing in our whole life?

We have a whole entire eternity to look forward to if we love God with every ounce of our being, but if we turn away {and do not let anyone fool you with vain lies that say you cannot be removed from the book of Life you most certainly can, and will be cast into hell for it} He will turn away from you, and Jesus will not confess your name before God the Father. God demands commands even that we love Him so that He may reward us lavishly forever. No two days the same everything new and amazing every moment for eternity. Peace and joy so overwhelming if we were in our mortal flesh we would disintegrate with the power of it.

But if we refuse and reject then an eternity of burning and suffering forever. Where worms eat you and never die, and you never die. When every opportunity you ever had of coming to the Lord and the knowledge of the truth, rides before your memory with palpable regret, forever and ever. Hating yourself knowing this is where you made yourself have to go. Knowing this is what you deserve for not wanting to be the Lord’s in this life. All for a short life that really amounted to no meaning at all in it, because you were so unhappy unsatisfied unfulfilled throughout this life and all you had to do was listen to those who tried so ardently to tell you you were in danger.

Yeah what an eternity that is!

Anyway back to the scriptures. Luke 14:25-35 25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, 26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife,and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. 33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

When the Lord says he who has ears to hear let him hear, we really want to pay close attention. This is a cue for us to give our ears over to the Holy Spirit so He can fill us in. The Lord cue’s us in when we are supposed to pay extra special attention to something He has said with either, I tell you the truth, or repeating something 2 or 3 times. Verily Verily I say unto you is another cue to pay close attention to His words.

Throughout the word we can find these things in Jesus words. But what you can clearly see is in the word the Lord used very few words to get the message out. I honestly personally believe He did this so as to confuse and confound those who are not filled with the Holy Spirit. The bible is foolishness to the perishing, those who do not have the power of the Holy Spirit cannot get the rest of the meaning, because it is Holy Spirit discerned. The rest of the story get’s filled in (for me personally) as I study intensely the word for myself. Having no human being filling me in on the word and it’s meaning, is the only way I can do the word.

When I have heard others views, ideas and understanding, I always come to the conclusion that they do not understand the word. I cannot sit idly by and accept other’s teaching and must go study whatever topic half to death. Using tools for great in depth bible study is important no man’s ideas but verses that pertain to the same subject matter, works wonderfully. A great cross reference study bible is always a great tool. There is also sites I use that have wonderful cross reference bible verses on the side called, bible hub, and then one of my favorites is info.bible.com.

Looking back at those bible verses in Luke let’s go through them by threes? Jesus was sharing with a great amount of people before He went to the cross even, that we must pick up our cross and drop everything else and follow Him. If we cannot do that because of loyalties to our family and or friends then He tells us simply, you are not worthy of me. We should love Him so much that our love of others looks like hatred, when compared. Verses 25-27.

Verses 28-30 speak on the fact that before we would begin to build anything we would need to make sure we have enough to finish the project, or risk looking like a fool. The risks of looking like a fool are small when you think of the fact that starting in the Lord and not going on with Him forever till you either die or come to the end of this world, is a very poor idea. It shows that you were not really thinking of the possibility of being unable to complete your mission, for lack of trusting the Lord to do it all. We would not look bad to people, but to the Lord, and looking like a failure to the Lord is the worst thing that could happen to us.

He expects us to trust Him and obey Him, at all times. He expects us to come to Him who is capable beyond our human understanding, to handle everything for us by living in us and through us. He is not looking for part time children and or shared custody of us. He wants us to deliver ourselves over to His hands fully and completely, without reservation and without pulling ourselves in and out of that very capable hand, whenever we feel it is too much or whatever else would pull us away from Him. To be fully immersed in Him and building daily our relationship with Him.

We must dedicate time to Him and pursuing Him. Of course He knows we must work for a living and to do all things that pertain to life, but in Him is where strength courage and stamina is really realized. So that we walk through this life in the way He wants us to. Not allowing depression any quarter, not allowing our own weaknesses and or illnesses to slow us stop us, or bring us to a halt in our walk with Him. Which brings me to another point. Satan throws everything at us but the kitchen sink, we cannot allow him and his antics to derail our walk. We cannot allow feelings of hurt and anger to stop us from moving always forward in the Lord.

Death should not even slow us down, the death of our loved ones I mean. We do not mourn as the world mourns, 1 Thess 4:13-14. We sorrow of course when we lose one we love, but just pick up in the Lord trusting Him that your loved one is in His capable hands, and move forward, being built up and strengthened in Him. He takes our cares upon Himself if and when we allow Him to. Picking our own thoughts and feelings back up on a constant basis, we must repent of that, and drop it all at His feet again and again. We are human beings who make mistakes, and this is one of those huge mistakes that causes us grief and sorrow. Picking our problems back up and worrying them in our minds and hearts, is a great way to lose our joy and peace in the Lord.

Verses 31-33. Speaks about going to war and counting out how it will all go down. Basically when one is planning to go to war against another kingdom or government, or country, one would do intense study of one’s foe, and how many men he will come to meet you at war with. It is telling us plan in advance for every contingency, so as not to fall away and lose. In this case it is losing your eternal rewards and spiritual death occurs, when one leaves off the Lord and His will and ways, before the race (so to speak) is over, being called disqualified by the Lord, is a very scary thing.

We must put aside every desire we have every thought that is self-contained, and everything that we think in order to put Him inside us. If we walk away He will pull back, if we stay in Him, then He will remain in us and with us. We cannot afford to be cut off from the Lord, or our condemnation will be swift. In a vision I had a couple years ago now, I saw the children of God walking in His shadow and the forces of evil just on the outskirts of God’s shadow, waiting ever watching for those to step out of line, and then devouring them once they did step out from His shadow covering. It was horrifying to watch as the fear and horror and invasion of themselves occurred unto death.

These people, the look on their faces was unimaginable as they were consumed by evil, lest evil lose a new disciple back to the Lord, so they were destroyed immediately. I do not want to see that happen. Hell is chock full of good people, people who even read their bible thinking they were saved not knowing truth for themselves. Many people, not all but most people who claim Christ, do not know the first thing about being saved or about being born again and about living for the Lord, and not themselves.

Gay people molesters whatever you want to cook up in your mind as sin, none of these is more sin than any other thing. Sin is sin before the Father and he cannot look upon sin in any form. From the mildest in your mind to the most deplorable sin they are all sin and equal in the eyes of God. I love my gay friends and family, but am under no delusion they live to please their sinful flesh, they will go to hell. The same with liars and thieves and whore mongers murderers, sin is sin, and living without God means going to hell. Even those who are gay and claim Christ is theirs, they don’t know how wrong they are. Living for ourselves is not picking up your cross daily.

Living for God is self sacrificing. It is dropping your hopes dreams and mostly your fleshly desires at the door. Every morning when we awaken we renew our dedication to the Lord. A new day another day to get closer to God not living to fulfill your most base desires, but living to please Him, which is to love Him with all our heart soul and mind, and love our neighbors as ourselves. Truly I must confess the second one is so hard in this day and age, but we cannot afford to lose the love or we are worth nothing at all.

The Lord showed me many verses that show what happens if you walk away from Him.
Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; 8 but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

John 15:1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;[a] and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. Read that carefully. Read it a few times taste it sound it out as you read it think on it and understand He will throw you in the fire if you walk away from Him.

He wants that we all repent confess our sins and ask forgiveness for them. When He sent Jesus, Jesus did not die so you could be a sinner forever more, He died so you can be set free from sin live a Holy life and be alive with Him forever more in the Kingdom in New Jerusalem. He died so you can be purified in and through Him. That you no longer live your life, but hand it back to Him as payment for His life.

God is not looking for anyone who is not interested in walking out their every moment of life in Him. He is looking for the most devoted bride He can find, no other will do for His son. He is not coming back right now because we are a big bunch of filthy people with our most amazing righteous works being as filthy as dirty rags. People think they are so good and don’t even know the Lord at all and or what is His will and ways, but they believe they will be removed any moment, how foolish to ignore the word of God.

Those people who claim Christ and show they are not His, are so blatantly not anywhere near the child of God they call themselves. The cannot imagine how very clear it is to see that they do not know the truth for themselves that they indeed have demons doctrines and false teachers mentalities. We must know the Lord for ourselves this is how He teaches us to walk in Him every step we take in this life.

We must be sold out to Him entirely body soul and heart. This is the only thing God accepts, is those whose whole life is not dedicated to pursuing joy and happiness on earth, but they who pursue God and seek more and more knowledge of Him daily. Their only mission in this life is to know Him more, to be moved closer to Him in spirit and heart. To walk in the very power that raised Christ from the dead. Not a powerless useless life all done in our own strength.

When we are sick that is satan working against us to slow us down. Ill health does not come from the Lord, it comes from the enemy, we are to rebuke it and cast it off of us, commanding it to leave us and then walk in the knowledge that in Christ is no illness, no infirmity! He is whole and complete and is not sick or feeble, so if He lives in us and through us, then we are His vessel. There is no holes so to speak in His pitcher. He overflows us with grace and knowledge and wisdom and we from that abundance pour out on others lives, deliberate pouring out so we do not miss our targeted empty glass, that just waits to be filled.

So in closing, Do not come to the Father thinking to use Him when you need Him, and then the rest of the time relegate Him to the back of your heart life and mind. He will allow you your free will, it is up to you to make sure you find out from the Father how not to falter. It is up to us to maintain our life in Him and grow our connection with Him. We control our relationship with the Father, He does not. We choose how close and how deep we go into this relationship with Him. But oh friends brothers sisters in Him, the rewards of being called His friend and Confidante are priceless and plentiful.

A New Commandment I Give You!

posted by PrayerWarrior

34But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” 37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Matt. 22:34-40.

With human relations declining throughout the planet, and anger and hatred taking over completely, it is so very hard to love anyone anymore. Yet if we lose the love, we have lost our own salvation. The Loving God part for me anyway comes easy. We who have been freed from much bondage and sin and who have been forgiven much can honestly love the Lord with every part of our being. The issues come in when we have to love the unlovable people of this world.

Yet the Lord expects us to seek His heart for others, and to love them as we love ourselves. How do we do this in a world growing more and more hateful by the day? We give it to God fully and completely! Let’s look at how much Love is spoken of in the NT. Quite often, and Jesus said in John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Love is the most important commandment, it is the only one according to Jesus. Everything thatis done in love cannot fail. Love does not seek it’s own, it does not boast, it does not hurt anyone in anyway. It says in 1 Pet 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Jesus says in Matt 24:9-14 9 “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers. 10 And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. 11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. 12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14 And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.

Let’s talk about verse 12. In the KJV it says because iniquity will abound, the love of many grows cold. That friends is apostasy! If we lose the love, we are as nothing. We are good only for the fire, we have turned from fruitful into waste. In John chp 15 we read of the vine being cut off and thrown in the fire, if it bears no fruit, it is only good for the fire. It also describes the apostles as the branches and we are included in that!
John chpt 13 it says By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

1 John 4:20 says If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? John 13:35 says “We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death”.See not loving is apostate. We must maintain no matter what we go through the Love. If we lose the love we have lost everything and all our past goodnees and or righteous deeds have come to naught.

Paul says, “owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ ‘You shall not covet,’ and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” (Romans 13:8-10) Pretty clear on that score. Love does not wrong to anyone at any time.

Jesus said in Luke chpt 6:30-36 “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” principle. He says, “Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.”

That set of verses covers a lot of territory. If we love we will go that extra mile to show the love. Imagine you borrow from someone and they give you much more than you asked for, then tell you you owe me nothing! I never want you to try and pay me back! Your head would nearly spin off your neck at such a thing. Especially in this day and age when everyone is out for what more they can get out of each other, this is unheard of.Yet it is something we should regularly be practicing. I am not talking about giving everything you have unless of course you have the faith to believe the Lord will cover you, much more than you gave.

Of course we must be doing according to the will of God as well. But we know the will of God is to love even our enemies in this way. When he said if one slap you in the face turn your cheek and present it too to your enemy. Also if one takes your coat give them your sweater too! No this is so not easy a thing to do. We are incensed at such a thing occurring. We would be absolutely flabbergasted for someone to steal our coat right off us. The last thing we would be thinking is here take my sweater too.

We would be thinking, you are so lucky I don’t grab you and beat you!! But now turn it around and think how that thief would feel like hell came down on their head, if you turned and smiled at them and said oh here have my sweater too! They would think you went nuts and they would certainly think twice about walking off with your coat and sweater. They would be heaping coals on their own head. They would be so astounded I think they would give you your coat back and walk off wondering what just happened?

How many of us do such things? How many of us think only of ourselves and our own comfort? I know I sure do. But in learning and growing in the Lord, I pray that should such ever occur, I would do the noble thing and think to myself instead of you creepy jerk! Wow the need that prompted such an action as steaing my coat right off my back, deserves to be met. Here take my coat and here is my sweater for anyone who is with you, suffering with you. Then bring them to a shop and get them lunch as well. Can you imagine that soul being won for the Lord? I sure could! So now I pray Lord help me to be blessed enough to be such a blessing to others.

Father help me to love as you love. Lord help me to see the need behind the foul actions rather than looking at the outer, help me see the inner turmoil that has caused one to do things not of the norm. Let’s think of what 1 Corinthians 13 says, if we have all the gifts of the spirit but have no love we are as a sounding brass. Meaning we are nothingbecause if there is no love then God is not in you. if there is no love you are apostate or were never his to begin with. It is getting harder and harder to love in this crazy cruel world. The sorrow to be found on a daily basis makes one shudder.

The news is filled with horrible things going on all over the world. Each moment of every day there are things being reported by the media main stream and Christian, as well as not so known news outlet’s. These are designed by the enemy to rob us of the Love of the compassion and empathy needed to maintain and remain in love. By hearing all these things seeing pictures and videos of these things going on, we become complacent and apathetic. We become desensitized to them, as they are shown often. So that we stand on the side lines and say and do nothing anymore.

Love treads where fools refuse to go. We as lovers of God and each other must stand up. We must speak and contend for truth. We must argue out of love for truth. We must make known the things of God and especially the love of God. We must be examples of the exemplary love of God at all times at all costs. I know arguing does not sound like it is right. But when we aretalking about false teachings and false beliefs it is our duty to prove the word of God to those who are lost and or not understanding. We must always contend for the truth. it is so important to believe in the Lord in truth and spirit.

In closing I pray that the Lord will help you to see what is pure true love the kind of love we all dream of being and doing. I pray the Lord open each of our eyes but especially our hearts to true deep abiding love no matter what happens. Because if we lose the love then we have lost the race, and there is no second place we must be first! As it gets harder and harder to stay in love with God andeach other, may the Lord fill us with compassion and empathy to just keep on going in Him. He who endures till the end shall be saved. That is enduring in love come what may. I pray the Lord fills us each with strength to be doers of the word and not hearers only.

Blessings in Christ Jesus,
Tammy

The Tower Of Babel And The End Times

posted by PrayerWarrior

It has always interested me how the Tower of Babel,coincides with the end times. In that the people of the times of the tower of Babel,were all of one mind,and that in the end times it would be the same way. Now it is easy to see that the governments of the world,through the U.N. are working to come together. Working on making us a one world government,and one world currency,and eventually a one world religion as well.

The bible tells us this is going to be the case in the end times,and we can see it all coming together. At first I found it all to be a very slow occurrence,now it is moving at an ever greater speed. As we come closer and closer to the fulfillment of bible prophecy,it will move at lightning speeds. We must be completely prepared for what is coming, so that it does not catch us unaware. Therefore surprising us into shocked immobility.

God prepared us for all things to come, through his word, so that we who adhere to the word, will not be shocked into being unable to do anything, or to stand up under such hard times that will be coming. Now I will show the parallels between the tower of Babel and the end times. I pray that the Lord will lead my hand, so that you may understand what the Lord would have you know from this particular occurrence.

In Genesis chapter 11 verses 1-9 We see here a people of one speech, one mind,wanting to stay this way, as well as make a name for themselves.

1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Now I want to concentrate on verse 6. And the Lord said,Behold,the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them,which they have imagined to do. The amplified bible says it like this, 6 And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them. So there is a whole lot of power in numbers of people being of the same mind, and the same purpose.

That is why unity in the Body of Christ is a very powerful thing as well. We should not have this in fighting about doctrine,within the Christian community.

Anyhow. In building this tower the people left God out of the equation. They decided they were great and this tower was like a monument to their own greatness. God seems to be saying here also that, with them all being of one mind they can reach greater heights of power. That indeed nothing would be impossible to them. This is what the world is coming back to. In every part of the world Governments are failing their own countries,their own people,it seems even, at least here in America,on purpose.

So that the world will have one government. So that there can be one world currency,as well. I mean the countries around the world,their economies are collapsing, as ours will soon collapse, due to reaching the point of 90% debt, to GDP. GDP = gross domestic product: the measure of an economy adopted by the United States in 1991; the total market values of goods and services produced by workers and capital within a nation’s borders during a given period (usually 1 year).

Once the 90% mark has been reached then hyper inflation, or the collapse of the money, or both will occur. We cannot keep adding debt when we are over drawn. They cannot keep printing money, it makes the dollar lose value at each printing. Besides the fact that the machines printing money running 24 hours a day 7 days a week, cannot now keep up with the demand for more money. This also destroys the worth of the money being printed,because there is nothing backing the money. China has our debt and they do not want to give us any more money,due to the wasting of it, for the last two years.

Now to get to some parallels of the tower of Babel,and us today. Notice how it says they were making bricks? Bricks are man made rocks,they are all the same no difference in materials used to make them, shaped from the same mold. This is a metaphor for people,and how the government wants us all to be the same with the exceptions of the elite,the rich,the powerful people. God made us like stones,all different,all unique in our make up. Whenever God has a monument made to him,it is always with stones. Rocks not formed by human hands.

I was watching a Glenn Beck show recently and there was a man called Rabbi Daniel Lapin on the show. About three weeks before Rabbi Lapin came on the show I was planning out my tower of Babel end times parallel’s bible study. To my immense liking,this show was all about the tower of babel and the world today,or the Headlines of today,and how they mesh. Rabbi Lapin made the connection of the bricks and the stones. It was so good I did not want the show to end.

Also the other thing Rabbi Lapin said that was so very interesting is this. The mortar that holds the bricks together is materialism. Meaning the way the people stay as one, or think of themselves as one, was materialism. They had the same stuff. The same level of wealth or poverty, depending on how you look at it.

Here are Rabbi Lapins exact words. “And it’s very important because the lesson from ancient Jewish wisdom here is that you can bond people and unify people with a sense of common spiritual purpose, but if you’re going to eliminate the spiritual — if you’re going to take God entirely out of the picture — then you can unify people through materialism”.

“Get people in debt, use your credit cards, folks. Buy stuff. Acquire stuff. And then you can rent storage facilities to keep the stuff you bought that you don’t need. But that way, we’re all in this together and we can all talk about the great commercials we saw during the football game. And we’re all in this great materialistic splurge because it will unite people”.

“And what any tyrant knows is that you cannot enslave a people that believe in the boss (In God). You just can’t. And so, therefore, any tyranny will always begin to develop a hostility to traditional biblical faith, a hostility to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, a hostility to biblical commitment of any kind at all”.

“You always find that, whether it’s Cuba or the Soviet Union or anywhere else, secularism becomes the religion of the day. In fact, I gave it a name — secular fundamentalism, I think, is the religion of the day. Anybody who is following the Babel blueprint wants to eliminate distinctions between individuals and between countries and bring it all together under one tower of government”.

We are seeing evidence of this all over the world, through the U.N. They are working hard to unite the world. Look at the plans for M.A.E.D, Mutually assured economic destruction. Meaning if one government in the world fails,or better yet falls,we all fall. It is what is happening. France,Spain,Ireland,Greece, Portugal,they have or are, on the verge of collapse. Greece has collapsed,and what you do not see on the main stream media’s news, is the extreme riot’s going on there. The people are starving and so they are taking to the streets,rioting and fighting and destroying everything. Killing one another. It is horrendous.

But the sad thing is it is coming here, and a lot sooner than you can imagine. Have you all noticed the prices of food and gas going up? Everything is going up because it has to, to deal with our debt,which now we cannot even touch. I heard an American citizen the other day say listen folks you might want to teach your self and children how to speak mandarin Chinese language, because soon China will own us. I believe it.

Now to finish this up. The way that this all relates,is this.The people were of one mind,one religion which was secularism. And our world wide governments, are working to have us all come to being of one mind, as well as doing their level best to make us all secularists. They are killing off our freedoms one by one,and it wont be long until they have made our Constitution null and void. They pretend this allegiance to the constitution when in actuality they hate our constitution,they find it bothersome,and antiquated.

The people of the times of the tower of Babel were given different languages,and were moved to other parts of the earth, to keep them from coming together. Now God does not have that option. Now the end will come when you see the one world government,the one world currency,which I believe will actually happen first. When we see this, we know the end is very near. Because all God has left is to destroy evil. Also the one world religion. What that will be, i am not 100% sure of, but I personally think it will be Islam.

They (all the leaders in the world) are working on making all of us little people into slaves,into the same as one another,not stones but bricks. I personally plan on remaining the stone God made me to be. I will not go along blithely with the worlds governments plan to make me a slave. Nor will I give up my strong belief in the Lord and His saving grace. I may have to suffer some horrid stuff,but I am the Lord’s and will be no others.

Here is the Glenn Beck Program if you would like to see it. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,602223,00.html it is part of it with a 17:43 minute recording, I do believe you can watch the rest of it too. But if not, you can read the rest of it. If you cannot click on the link just open a new tab, then copy and paste it into your browser.

Let us not think ourselves as mere bricks,but as stones hand crafted by God.

Love in Christ,Tammy

Question Answered, Is The Rapture in the year 2009

posted by PrayerWarrior

It has come to my attention, that many people have been asking this question all over the net in search engines. I would like to answer you all. There is going to be no rapture in 2009 . The timing is not an answerable question by anyone. Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” Then you ask how can I possibly tell you, I know there will be no rapture in 2009? Well this is how, In Matthew 24 Jesus also tells us in verses 29-31 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. It says “IMMEDIATELY AFTER” those days of tribulation. It does not say before tribulation, Jesus is quite clear here.

Why you might ask, would a loving God want us to go through trials and tribulations? Well personally I know Why America should be tested. We Americans are lazy and we lament about the littlest of trials. We go through something that someone from another country, would feel they were in a spa for the day for,and cant stand it feel we can’t handle it. God is going to test our mettle. He is going to see how much it will take to turn us away from him. We here in America are so not tested and tried as of yet. Our lives are super super easy. Try living in another country,where there is not enough food, no work, no clean water, your not free to speak as you wish. Not free to practice the religion you wish to. Not free to do anything but starve and have no clothing. No housing, not a drop of governmental help. If your found out for practicing a religion your country has not sanctioned, your dead, beaten, or imprisoned.

Also Jesus said in Mark 13:14 we would know the times,in Mark 13:14& Matthew 24:15,16 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: Then in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will “NOT” come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition. The antichrist must first be revealed. I don’t understand how people can confuse this with any thing other than what is exactly in front of your eyes. I have also heard it told that Jesus was speaking to the Jews in Matthew 24:16. Because he says those in Judea? The book of revelations also tells us that Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles.There will be Christians and Jews alike.

All of the new testament is for all of the people in the world. Those who would listen to the calling of the Lord. We must also see the Temple built first in Jerusalem. Otherwise what is the antichrist going to make desolate? Sadly so many people are deceived in this day and age. It is going to be a sad day indeed, for all of these pastors and laymen who adhere to and teach diligently the rapture before the tribulation. When they realize they have been seriuosly sadly deceived themselves, and that they have been a part of satans huge lie. When their congregations depart from them and from God, and they realize they helped satan they are going to be devastated. It is unfortunate but true,even men who have within themselves believed the truth, that it is a prewrath rapture,do not tell anyone . Why? because they would have to lose lot’s of money, “lot’s of money.”

I have recently heard of a Pastor who came to the realization that it is prewrath rapture. Not pretribulation, and he gave up his 20 million dollar a year ministry, because he could not and would not deceive his congregants. That is one heck of a Godly man right there. His elders of his church said sorry can’t have you make us lose all our money and support, from all the people who want to believe in pretrib rapture,as well as make us lose the support of other pretrib teaching churches.

The great falling away the great apostasy,is going to be those who believe with all their hearts the lie that there is a pretribulation rapture. Let’ look at it this way in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables”. What do people want to hear more than any thing else on earth? That they will suffer nothing!! Right? No one wants to hear you may have to die for the cause of Christ. No one wants to hear your loved one may be killed right in front of you. So just because it feels good to your mind,your heart,your itching ears to hear you will suffer nothing,you believe that damnable lie satan has been perpetuating since 1830 something. When you begin to suffer and say to yourselves hey wait I was not supposed to be here for this, don’t you dare turn away from the Lord. Don’t you do that I don’t care what you have to suffer, you need to stick to your first love and remember, It is not God nor his word, nor Jesus that lied to you. No sir, no ma’am, it was satan deceiving the whole world.

Do you really think that Satan is powerful enough to deceive the whole world into thinking UFO’s came and stole people off the earth? He is certainly powerful and definitely crafty, but he has no power over free will. God refuses to step on our free will, why would he allow satan to have control of our free will? Satan can cajole, and talk into, and lie you into doing things, but he cannot make you do anything. He could not force the world to believe that UFO’s came and stole people. Besides there is no secret about the coming of Christ on the clouds with great glory. Nor is it going to be a secret when the heavens are shaken and stars fall and the sun is made black.
The great lie which people are believing around the world is not forced on anyone,it is what they want to hear. 2nd Thess. 2:11 And for this cause GOD shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. Verse 12 states: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

So no darling brothers and sisters from all over the world who have asked this Question. The rapture is not eminent. The rapture could still be years off. We must first see that temple in Israel,we must first see many many terrifying things,and withstand much trials and tribulation. We are in serious need of refinement before we can go home to meet our Father in Heaven. Remember he who endures to the end Matthew 24:13 but those who stand firm to the End shall be saved. Matthew 10:22 You will be hated by all men for my name’s sake, but he who endures to the end will be saved. Mark 13:13 You will be objects of universal hatred because you are called by my name, but those who stand firm to the End will be saved. Luke 8:13 Those on the rock are they who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; but these have no root, who believe for a while, then fall away in time of temptation.
Luke 21:19 “By your endurance you will win your lives. 2 Corinthians 1:7 Our hope for you is steadfast, knowing that, since you are partakers of the sufferings, so also are you of the comfort. Why would we be comforted if we had not suffered? Be ready Ephesians 6:11 Put on the complete armor of God, so as to be able to stand firm against all the stratagems of the Devil.1 Timothy 6:19 laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold of eternal life. 1 Peter 5:9 Withstand him, firm in your faith; knowing that your brethren in other parts of the world are passing through just the same experiences. 1 Peter 5:10 And God, the giver of all grace, who has called you to share His eternal glory, through Christ, after you have suffered for a short time, will Himself make you perfect, firm, and strong. What ? after you have suffered for a short time? Hmmmmm what could that mean?

Stand firm in the Lord no matter what please I implore you since I want to see as least amount of people go to hell as I can. Stand firm in your love and trust of Christ. We who are his own have nothing to fear, not even when or if we are broken and maimed and beaten and tortured. Even unto death stand firm in Christ and your love of him. He will not leave your side during your trials and troubles. Jesus said, “Fear not them that kill the body…Mt. 10:28 Rather, “fear Him who is able to destroy both body and soul in hell.”Mt. 10:29.

In closing let me say be strong,be steady,unmovable,unshakable in the Lord. No matter what you have been taught do not turn away from God when your trials and the tribulation occur. Love God with all your mind,body and soul. Remain my brothers and sisters in Christ always, please!! If someone tells you that they know when the rapture is, they are a liar.

Love in Christ Jesus, Tammy
