Let’s Get Busy
We Aren’t Raptured Yet
I am so excited. It occurred to me that perhaps we all just need to “Be About Our Father’s Business”. He wouldn’t have it any other way … I’m sure of this.
I believe it’s important to try and develop a multipurpose walk in Christ. For example. While it’s good to consider yourself to be a type of watchman, and email “intelligence” to your fellow Christians and others, we probably should find ways to reach others as well. This is not an easy thing to do, but you surely won’t be nearly as successful reaching people, by using only email.
Perhaps we need to “get out of the house” more.
54th Ave North
Yesterday I took the kids to the beach. Josh hadn’t been there yet. He’s a country boy from Virginia and it was exciting for him and my daughter to spend time there. On the way down to Treasure Island, I accidentally turned off on 54th Ave North. Or was it an accident? I don’t know. What I do know is at the bottom of the exit ramp stood the skinniest homeless person I think I’ve ever seen.
I waved to him to come over to the car and I gave him a $20 bill and told him, “Ya know that Jesus Christ is coming back really soon brother right? You know that don’t you?” This man lit up and smiled from ear to ear. Not over the money .. nope. He said ” Yes I know he is and I pray to him every day”. I said to him, “Well ya know brother, I might be taking orders from you in Heaven one day” and he laughed and said “I’m not so sure about that … but I’m trying” and said “God Bless You”.
The kids were wowed. My daughter said “Dad … That’s so COOL!”. She said “Did you see how happy that man was?”
I asked my daughter … “Kris … did it ever occur to you that maybe me taking that exit wasn’t a mistake after all? Maybe God wanted me to take that exit. Maybe it was the answer to that man’s prayers”.
She just said …. “Wow I hadn’t considered that”.
A Sudden Surge of Enthusiasm
I find myself in a constant roller coaster ride. I suspect you might too. It’s hard. I believe there is nothing more difficult than carrying the burden of knowing how close we are to the return of the Son of Man, and still continuing our normal daily activities. I often tell people “If you had any idea how challenging it is to be in the driver’s seat of Tribulation-Now, it would blow your mind”. And I’m not kidding. Its UP and down, and UP and down, and UP and down … all day and night long. Amen!
But it is a GLORIOUS BLESSING!
A Constant State of Awe
I kid you not when I tell you that in any given day, the Lord “Blesses” me with a wide range of “things to do” for the Kingdom. It’s really pretty cool. On any given day I might be working with someone who has been abducted by aliens and telling me unbelievable stories that blow my mind. Then later that same day I pray with someone via email to call down the Holy Spirit and blessings upon their family. Then later I might get a call from someone who is demon oppressed and having a really hard time pulling themselves out of the demonic pit. But EVERY TIME, sooner or later, Awesome Jesus sends me someone who just says thanks.
I am in a constant state of awe.
I praise God in Heaven for every single email I receive from each of you. Praise Jesus for ever tidbit of global end-times intelligence. Praise Jesus for every prayer request. Praise Jesus for every heart felt request to help rid someone of demonic influences.
What a wonderful God we serve.
Become a Disciple
Those of you who email your “intelligence” out to a list of friends … how long has it been since you sent out a request for prayers from those people? Turn your list of friends into your own FIVE FOLD MINISTRY for the Kingdom of Jesus.
If a bonehead like I can do it … SO CAN YOU!!
We are all disciples of Jesus Christ. We are all able to “cast out devils”. We are all able to “feed the poor”. We are all able to “Heal the Sick!!” Ask and you shall receive, especially when it’s a request to serve the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Moving to Pittsburgh?
I don’t know what the Lord has in store for me. You probably don’t either. Maybe the “calling up” will occur in the next few weeks. But then again, maybe it won’t be for a while either. God LOVES to humiliate the enemy. He has them running for their underground bunkers scared. Do a search in your Bible on the word “Laugh”. I think you will be surprised what you discover.
God controls the “magnetosphere” of the Universe(s) and dimensions. Scientists are just now starting to realize that the concept of “gravity” is inherently flawed and the objects in the Universe(s) are actually manipulated through “electromagnetism” instead. That’s pretty awesome. And now the physicists are befuddled over the fact that light particles appear in more than one place at the same time. So the light constant of 186,000 miles per second is also flawed. I love it! God is SO AWESOME. I love God so much. He created science and the mysteries that blow our minds. That rocks!
Sometimes You Might Not Like What God Tells You
In early January I prayed to God and cast lots before Him. I was perpetually focused on getting a “new job”. I looked at the calendar and focused my eyes on January 15th, figuring that God would bless me with another job just that soon. After all, that was what “I” wanted … so that must be what God had in store for me … right? Nope.
I prayed fervently before the Father and asked him to share his wisdom with me. I cast forth the lot and opened the 800 + page thesaurus in praise. The book fell open to the word “FAR”. I was in utter dismay. I was thinking there is NO WAY the word “FAR” could be the right word. It said my next job would be “far, far away, long way off, distant future” etc. I hated that book. I felt ripped off. I simply did not want to believe that I would have to lose all my savings because I wouldn’t get a job right away.
And here I am almost 2 months later. Amen. No job. Looks like God was right. Imagine that. I have 3 or 4 recruiters working for me and have gone on a bunch of interviews and … nothing. I even asked the Lord if I should bother doing any more interviews and the word He gave me was “Foolish”. Wow. So I just shake my head and keep on doing his work, while I interrupt the Kingdom to take an occasional interview.
Then the Wife Leaves
Then my wife leaves. Ok no problem there. Praise Jesus. You see, I was bound by her requirement to stay in Florida due to a shared custody judgement. I’ve been wanting to move back to Pennsylvania now for something like 10 years. But either the “job” or the “wife’s requirements” kept me from being able. Interesting.
Then Kenneth, a wonderful Jesus filled “thought leader” for Tribulation-Now, tells me the Lord spoke to him in one of those “still small voices”. He told me his nephew is a job recruiter in the Pittsburgh area and maybe I should send him my resume. So I did. A week or two went by and nothing really came up.
All of a sudden I get this call. Evidently there is a global corporation in the Pittsburgh area that was so interested in my resume that they wanted to fly me up there right away. I was like “NO WAY”.
Only Your Will Be Done
But I humbled myself before God, and told him “Father, your Will be done, okay?” “Father, I would rather be poor and homeless than disobey you”. “Your WILL be done Father”. ” I serve ONLY you Father.” “I empty my cup before you Lord and ask you to “slam shut” any door you do not want me to walk through.
I pray this prayer every single day many times. All I really want to do is serve God. Frankly, I want to do that FULL TIME. … that is … if it is His will. And for the last two months, that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. And it’s a lot more than an 8 hour day I can assure you.
So today I had a phone interview with this global corporation. It went really well. I don’t know what God is going to do and if He decides to slam shut that door then GLORY BE TO JESUS!! On the other hand, Kenneth and I have discussed opening a “Healing Ministry” in the Pittsburgh area and letting the Holy Spirit open the doors for us. So we shall see.
How GLORIOUS it would be if God thumps Nibiru on the head to allow more time for the “fullness of the Gentiles to be brought in!” Yes … it is indeed with mixed emotions for sure. Yes I want to be with the King more than anything. But if I can squeeze just a couple of months more time out, and do MORE for the Lord than just write articles for Tribulation-Now then I will be so BLESSED to have a shot at it.
If I do get that job, then I will dump this “jail cell of a house”, and downsize to a small temporary abode, so that I can dump every spare penny into opening a “Healing and Deliverance” ministry in the Pittsburgh area.
I say this now in excitement for the Kingdom. I say this now before you and the Lord. Come now Jesus if that’s your plan.
But for now ….
GLORY BE TO GOD!!
…. Be Blessed in Jesus Name
