Iceland’s Government Resisted the Spirit of Anti-Christ that America has Embraced

Did you know that instead of bailing out the failed banks, Iceland made the banks pay for their errors… and it worked? Iceland did not submit to the corporate Babylon beast… They arrested the government officers and criminal banksters that colluded together to fleece the people. They ended up better off because of it and being one of the most prosperous nations in Europe. They did what Ron Paul has been crying out for over 30 years.

May God bless our nation to do the same one day soon.

Mystery of Iniquity

Part of the mystery of iniquity is to entice people’s commitment to chasing more and more of something that has less & less value as time goes on.

Which is why wicked business transactions are always setup in the devaluing of money, and the currency or transaction must always be diluted, to maintain control over the souls.

Because the love of money is the root of all evil. Remember the iniquity in Satan had a lot to do with his merchandising too, not just his musical talent and beauty.

But Babylon is falling in Jesus name!

Just meditating out loud… Selah.

Jesus Christ Ministry Techniques

Jesus Christ Ministry Techniques

Some of God’s people nowadays have really good intentions, but are mistakenly trying to be smarter than God. We’ve also got a lot of compromise & covetousness in “ministry”. We have people singing and preaching a compromised message. As a result of the compromised message they end up committing spiritual adultery with the world and practicing idolatry (See what Jesus said concerning Jezebel in Revelations 2).  If they don’t repent, Jesus will kill them with death and put her followers into great tribulation.

Let’s go back and take a look at Jesus’ first message.

After he officially started his ministry (at a wedding), the first public thing he did was overturn temple, rebuking false people in religious authority (John 2:14-15).

What was Jesus’ first message?

14: Now after that John was put in prison [the spirit of Ahab and Jezebel HATES the spirit of John the Baptist/Elijah], Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
15: And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Mark 1

We’ll talk more about John the Baptist later, but let’s look at the specifics of Jesus’ message:

1. Time is fulfilled – urgency, time awareness

2. Kingdom of God is here. – New level of Authority is here

3. Repent – turn, change your mind and ways… implying that what you are doing now is wrong

4. Believe good news – the Truth is good news and will leave you better off than you are now

Look at the record of His first message in the book of Matthew.

Matthew 1:17 From that time Jesus BEGAN to preach and to say Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

Did Jesus say, let me heal everybody first and build my relationships before I ease in the repentance message maybe sometime later? – NO.

Did Jesus try to attract as many people as possible with a positive and non-confrontational message, and then bring conviction and repentance into the picture afterwards? – NO.

Did Jesus try to get as many fans as possible first, or try to gain influence through relationships with influential sinners… and then bring the hard message of repentance in slowly after his platform was already set? – NO.

Jesus BEGAN His ministry message with repentance. Repentance means turn from what you are doing now, implying that what you are doing now is wrong. That brings a feeling of guilt and conviction.

Did Jesus have love? Yes.

Did Jesus show love to all? Yes.

Did Jesus heal people and cast out demons and do miracles? Yes.

Did Jesus meet peoples natural and physical and emotional needs? Yes.

Did Jesus hide the truth and save the hard message of repentance until later – after he had done everything else first? – NO.

Actually, it was reversed. Jesus did the healing and relationship-building after people knew what He stood for and pointedly preached. He preached repentance from sin and the Kingdom of God. Most of the people who came to Him were already humbled by the message of repentance.

People love to acknowledge that Jesus ate with sinners, but let’s also acknowledge that those sinners were repenting due to the message that Jesus was actually preaching. I’m not saying you have to clean yourself up before you come to Christ. I am saying there is a humility that you take when coming before God. There always has, and there always will. God only hangs with humble people (James 5, 1 Peter 5). That’s why preaching repentance is primary, if you really want people to get to God.

When Jesus preached, the only non-repentant people were the Pharisees… They had their own religious beliefs that prevented them from feeling the need to repent. They came to attack Jesus, and they got attacked back with Truth.

The people that fight the message of repentance (change towards God) and holiness – Gods purpose in everything – are normally the people who are comfortable in their very-own, personally invested, religious tradition.

Let’s look at the forerunner of Jesus – John the Baptist. This was the prophet called to introduce people to Jesus. What did he preach?

Repent!

…the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
3: And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins…Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?…
8: Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
9: And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
10: And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
11: He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
12: Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
13: And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
14: And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

Luke 3

He preached the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins (Cancer that is in remission is not active). He demanded proof and results of repentance. Not only was John direct, he was also specific and bossy!

Let’s go back to Jesus… Whom did Jesus get most of his initial disciples from? They were initially followers of John the Baptist, who had repented with John’s Baptism of Repentance. John the Baptist prepared many people to receive Jesus Christ by preaching repentance.

Most of the people that rejected John’s message also rejected Jesus. Most of the people that received John’s message also ended up receiving Jesus’ message; even way later after Jesus died & rose again (See Acts 19:3-5, Acts 18:25). So how people respond to the message of repentance is a clue to how they will eventually respond to Jesus.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t preach holiness or repentance, that all you can do is build relationships and hope that people will maybe sometime repent later. You don’t have to be mean, but you do have to be clear. Relationship evangelism is good, but you don’t have to hide holiness and repentance.

 

21: Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22: And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Jude 1

On some have compassion… save some with fear and hatred. (Not hatred of the people, but hatred of sin).

Why did Jesus tell parables?

Let’s look at what Jesus Himself said about His parables:

10: And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
11: He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12: For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
13: Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14: And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
15: For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
16: But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

Matthew 13

34: All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
35: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
36: Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

Matthew 13

In other words: Jesus told parables to the hardhearted, spiritually dull, and rebellious who had already rejected His previous message of repentance.

If you only tell parables, you might as well just say “Go to Hell.”

After Jesus told parables to the masses, He then INTERPRETED parables to His DISCIPLES. Then when He died on the cross and rose from the dead, He told His disciples to go MAKE MORE DISCIPLES.

He did not tell them to go minister parables and make lots of money, but to go make more disciples. Those disciples would then pass on the CLEAR INTERPRETATION to make more disciples.

So the key to ministry with parables is not the parable, but it is the CLEAR INTERPRETATION. If you are telling parables without giving the CLEAR and Direct INTERPRETATION of the parable – you are not following Jesus Christ Ministry Techniques for making disciples.

I encourage you – don’t just speak the language of the world – bring them into the concepts of the Kingdom of God.

TO SUM IT UP

There’s nothing wrong with building relationships and having compassion. There’s also nothing wrong with harsh warnings and repentance preaching. Mature, Spirit-led Christians use BOTH, not just one or the other. When it comes to “ministry”, the greatest example is Jesus Christ the King.

Also, realize that there are many different personality types, ministry styles, gifts, and callings. Don’t let anyone squash yours. Be yourself and do what God has built you and instructs you to do. Above all, obey God.

Pearl Harbor is Coming for the Body of Christ

This vision is amazing… are you ready to die for Christ?
Because that’s the only way you will live. Hold onto Christ, don’t trick out.

PEARL HARBOR for THE CHURCH – A Vision
-by James Kehrli.

In December of 1984, about a week after I purchased an old 1940
Cadillac sedan, I was driving around thinking about times gone by,
particularly the time before and during World War II. Suddenly I
heard the Lord say to me, very softly, “It’s 1940 and Pearl Harbor
is coming up for the Church.” I thought about betrayal, warfare,
death and awakening! I prayed to the Lord about it and He began
to reveal to me more about Pearl Harbor. He reminded me of a
scene from the film Tora Tora Tora in which one of the Japanese
military leaders remarked, after their attack on Pearl Harbor, “I
fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him
with a terrible resolve.” I thought about the Church finally waking
up to her true condition. I thought about the terrible price our
country paid, in the 1940’s to wake up to the realities of the world
political situation. The price was human life, suffering, and
destruction. But we did wake up. I thought about December 8,
1941 when we declared war against the Axis powers. Before that
time we were sending arms, supplies and money to our allies, but
we were not sending men to help fight. We watched China, the
Pacific Islands, France and much of Europe fall to Germany, Italy,
and Japan, but we were not personally affected so we did not enter
the warfare. It took a catastrophic event to wake us up.

I prayed about and meditated on what I had heard until May of 1985,
when I again heard from God during a baptismal service in our
Church. The person to be baptized was an older lady who was
quite concerned, even a little frightened, about being fully immersed.
But she, after fifty years of disobedience and rebellion against God,
desired to be baptized for the first time. Right before I was going
to enter the water with her, a message in tongues came forth from
my wife. The Lord gave me the interpretation by means of the
following vision.

This vision describes a future time of great hardship and great
blessing for the Body of Christ.

He showed me a deep harbor with blue-green water that was clear
and calm. There was a Person in the water. This Person was not
swimming or standing, but just floating in an upright position. He
was motionless, like a sailing ship listing in a windless sea. Many
Japanese Zero aircraft came in from the east and proceeded to
dive-bomb and strafe the body in the water and the body began to
slowly sink. Eventually the body was entirely under the water. As
he went down, I could see that there were many little people on
this Body. As this Body sank deeper into the water, many of these
small people jumped off just before they were about to enter the
water. There were thousands of people jumping off and swimming
away from this slow but steadily sinking Body. Some of these
people jumped onto beds, which the Lord made clear to me were
beds of adultery,and floated away off to the left. Others jumped
onto whiskey bottles and paddled away; still others jumped on
books, while others swam off on their own strength. All of the
people were floating, swimming or paddling in the same direction.
I looked over in that direction, which was to my left, and I saw an
extremely beautiful, gigantic woman, with skin and clothing of a
deep reddish purple hue standing solidly on the harbor floor. She
stretched out her arms toward the sinking Body and got the
attention of many as she very sweetly, seductively, and sincerely
called out, “Come unto me all ye that are weary and heavy laden,
and I will give you WHAT YOU WANT!”

The people who were jumping off were in a panic, like rats leaving
a sinking ship. Some scurried to higher ground on the Body, going
from the shoulders to the ears and finally jumping off the top of the
head right before it went under.It was clear that THEY DID NOT
WANT TO LEAVE THIS BODY, but it was equally clear that they
were not going down under the water with it either. The Body now
was completely under the water, sinking steadily toward the
bottom. Some of the little people hung on as it sank, but after a
few seconds of holding their breath, they gave up, swam for the top,
gulped a mouth full of air, and swam off toward the woman.

The apparently lifeless Body sank deeper and deeper into the
clear blue-green water. As it sank I could see at the bottom of the
harbor a beautiful, large, perfect pearl – obviously of great value. It
was supernaturally large and beautiful, lustrous, pure and round. As
I watched, I could see the Body change shape from that of a single
being, with little people desperately hanging on it, to many little
individual people swimming deep enough to get to this beautiful
Pearl. As they went deeper, many chose to quit and swim to the
surface for air and life and then go over to the beautiful woman. All
who quit diving eventually swam over to the beautiful woman.

Finally, I saw a number of these small people swim to the Pearl
and touch it, and embrace it. But to do this, everyone who dove
down reached a point when they realized that their own natural
ability to hold their breath and dive deeper would not be enough.
Those who dove down and touched this Pearl all came to
understand that they would have to expend all of their natural
strength before they touched and embraced the Pearl of Great
Price. This did not keep them from diving down though, because
the closer they got to the Pearl, the more of His beauty they saw.
I saw many touch and embrace the Pearl and then immediately
shoot straight up. As each of these little people shot up from the
floor of the Harbor, each had the Pearl. As this group of individuals
rose higher and higher, they all became one Body again. By the
time these Pearl-laden people reached the surface they burst forth
from the waters as one Body, the Body of Christ. These people
were manifestly His own possession and they in turn possessed
the Pearl of Great Price, Jesus Christ Himself.

As the Lord was showing me this beautiful picture, He spoke to
me and said, “Even as Jesus came out of the waters of baptism,
so My Body will come out of Pearl Harbor with a new and powerful
anointing of My Holy Spirit, and a new and deadly power to fight the
enemy.” He said that there indeed would come upon the Church
of Jesus Christ a Pearl Harbor experience like the United States
experienced on December 7, 1941. He said that when the Body
of Christ begins to sink under the water, because of a soon-coming,
devastating attack of the enemy, MANY will choose to desert our
Lord Jesus Christ because they do not esteem the Pearl of Great
Price (Jesus Himself) worth the price – death to their own selfish
desires. They will not make the selfless effort of love to dive
deeply enough to embrace Him because they do not love Him
more than their own lives. Many will choose not to identify with
what they assume is a defeated individual or group. They look
upon themselves as winners and will not identify with a Jesus that
is apparently being defeated. They will choose to identify with the
beautiful woman of the harbor who gives them what they want. As
the vision revealed, many who leapt off the sinking Body because
the woman of the harbor promised them success. Because of this
they went to her. Many others did not feel that it was necessary
to pay such a high price to apprehend Jesus, and they felt that
the beautiful woman would give them Jesus on their own terms.

As the Body of Christ came out of the waters of death, the Lord
said that His Body was now fully alive and would now fight the
enemy with purpose and real anointing. Also His Body would now
use only supernatural weaponry. He spoke so clearly to me about
the weapons. He said, “Even as the United States entered the
Second World War using conventional weapons to fight the enemy,
and ended the war with the atomic bomb, a weapon beyond their
comprehension; so My people will begin this spiritual war with
conventional weapons in the Spirit, but by the end of this war to
end all wars, they will be using atomic bombs of the Spirit”. The
Lord made it clear that we will come out of the water equipped with
God-given anointing to REALLY heal the sick, work miracles, and
deliver those in demonic bondage. He also made it clear that
before the warfare ends, we will be moving in a dimension of
spiritual warfare that is unimaginable to us now. We will do greater
works than Jesus did and we will see the demon hordes routed like
never before.

After this message in tongues and interpretation was given, my
attention turned back to the woman who was to be baptized. Then
the Lord said that the Pearl Harbor experience for His Church
would be similar to this woman’s baptism. I closely watched this
baptism to see what the Lord meant. The woman was very nervous
and quite afraid of going under the water. I assured her that she
would be all right. After several moments of prayer and a short
teaching on what baptism represented, she was plunged underneath
the water. She came out of the water with her hands lifted up,
praising God. I had not told anyone what the Lord told me about
this woman’s baptism, because I did not know exactly what was
going to happen. When she recovered her composure, she began
to testify about what had just happened to her. She said that she
was extremely fearful at first, but that when she got under the
water a Beautiful Peace swept through her, and all her fear was
gone. This beautiful peace became joy as she came out of the
water and she praised God for His great comfort, love and mercy.

I believe that God was showing us that we need not fear what He
will put us through. His purpose is to bring us peace, joy,
cleansing and power. He was also showing us that His Church
will go through a baptism. It is a baptism of the Body of Christ.
It is a death and a resurrection. We must trust Him to bring us out
of this watery tomb of death and into the glorious resurrection
power of His Son. We must understand that a harbor is a place
of SAFETY and REFUGE. God’s people who are involved in these
events will need to be safe and protected. The Harbor of the Pearl
of Great Price is the only harbor that will provide refuge and safety,
and ALL who believe will be more than willing to pay the price of
dying to their own desires.

Pearl Harbor is the death and resurrection of the Body of Christ,
being prepared to do His work in His way, with His heart. It is the
final separation of David from Saul – the David Church being
purified and separated from the Saul Church.

It is the final AWAKENING blast of the trumpet of God to rouse His
people for battle. It is the judgment that begins with the house of
the Lord. It is the refining fire that separates the gold from the
dross. It will be preceded by the Lord dealing with His true people
to both survive and desire this final preparation for battle. It is the
promise of unmatched power and purity: power over sin, power over
the enemy, power to live a much more virtuous life, and power to
glorify our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ by the power of
the Holy Spirit. Even now, God is dealing with those in the
David Church even as God dealt with David. Whenever David
would start to fall asleep to God’s purity and purpose, the Lord
would abruptly DEAL with David to AWAKEN him. God did not
waste this kind of effort on Saul because Saul CHOSE to be
asleep to God and His desires.

Pearl Harbor is a warning of betrayal and disaster. The Church in
the past has gone through many Pearl Harbors of betrayal and
disaster. Jesus was betrayed and killed and rose again. English
Puritans experienced Pearl Harbor in the early 17th century and
survived because they could not obey the law that the Church of
England tried to force them to obey. They fled England and
eventually sailed to the New World, where they laid the spiritual
foundation for what eventually became one of the greatest revivals
in the history of the world. John Bunyan, wrote Pilgrim’s Progress
at the bottom of the harbor as he was betrayed by his own
country and thrown in jail for not attending the services of the
Church of England and for preaching in a way that did not conform
to this church’s liturgy. Had he given in and done that which they
asked he could have been a free man. But for conscience’ sake he
chose not to do so. Because of this uncompromising obedience to
the Scriptures and to God Himself, he was able to rise to the
highest place in the history of Christian literature. Today he still
blesses us with the fruit of that resurrection power.

To those who are not awake and prepared, Pearl Harbor will come
suddenly and tragically, as a thief in the night, and they will be swept
away to Great Deception. To those who are more open to the will
of God than they are to pleasing religious men, it will be an expected
ordeal, a call to arms, and a prelude to great victory. The initial
stages will be the harbinger of the greatest move of God in history:
the greatest Revival and the greatest manifestation of Christian
Unity that the world has ever known.
