Standing Alone


Always stand for what is right.

Even if you are standing alone.


IT IS HUMAN to stand with the crowd; it is divine to stand alone.

It is man-like to follow the people, to drift with the tide; it is God-like to follow a principle, to stem the tide.

Noah built and voyaged alone. His neighbors laughed at his strangeness and perished in style.

Abraham wandered and worshipped alone. Sodomites smiled at the simple shepherd, followed the world’s fashion, and fed the flames.

Daniel dined and prayed alone.

Elijah sacrificed and witnessed alone.

Jeremiah prophesied and wept alone.

Jesus loved and died alone.

And of the lonely way His disciples should walk, He said, "Straight is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Matthew 7:14.

Of their treatment by the many who walk in the broad way, He said, "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own; but because ye are not of the world, . . . therefore the world hateth you." John 15:19.


Being alone can be a hard thing. If it is due to standing alone in your beliefs, then it is necessary, if you cannot find others to be in agreement with you.

But being alone, knowing that you are on the right path, can be very rewarding as well.

Many times, people do not want to stand alone in their faith, because they seek the rewards of fellowship and love they get from the world.

Rewards come in this life and the next.

We should not focus on the rewards, however but on the service to the Lord, which is done in love and adoration.

Because, once we leave this world, all that will be left behind us, and we will have nothing for eternity, if our focus is wrong.

Taking the path less followed will bring us to everlasting life and joy, even if we walk alone.

And while we are on the path, we are encouraged to share this path with others, and if they accept, we actually will have the fellowship we desire at the same time.

Instead of worldly friends, we will have godly friends, devoted as we are.

There will be others standing alone, who will stand with us.


Members come together to form one Body….which is the body of Christ.

So, whereever you are, you are not really alone, even if it appears that way in the physical realm.

You are joined with millions of those who share your beliefs, and these millions will join you, possibly in this life, and to be sure in the next life.

So the next time you feel alone, just look up. Look at all the stars. Count them, if you can. They represent all those who are one with you in spirit.

We will all meet someday, at a glorious wedding in the heavens.

  1. We are never standing “alone”.

    Praise be unto Yeshua our Most Holy and Precious Savior.


  2. Amen, this is sure what I needed to read today. Thank you for the post. We are never alone when we have Jesus Christ.

  3. Marianne,

  4. Anyone fed up, I’m really Saint Mike, tired of standing for unfaithful.

  5. You know occasionally I get someone that is willing to “consider” that the end might be near, but most do not have a clue!! I feel like I am shouting to a brick wall most days. I am tired. But, I will keep on shouting till the end. Stand firm, the time is near.

    • Ya know Deb, much of it could be a re-fulfillment of what Yeshua said in Matthew 13:57.
      Not that those of us that have experienced an encounter with God are necessarily prophets per se, but if the shoe happened to be on the other foot and someone that I have known for awhile came and told me what I experienced, I’d more than likely be skeptical too.

      Yet I, in keeping as a watchman, (Ezekiel 33:1-11.), continue to tell others no matter how it may tire me, or affect my reputation.
      I follow the Spirit regarding it as best as I can, and leave the consequences solely up to God the Father.

      Continue speaking what you are led by the Spirit to speak.

      Praise be unto our Holy and Glorious Savior Yeshua HaMashiach.

  6. Yeah….I too will continue. I would rather one person believe me and take heed as I shout, than to not shout it and that one person not be saved. I have lost most that is dear to me during this process but what I gain will be I pray my Father saying “well done” my child.

  7. I try to tell my sister that Jesus is coming right around the corner any day know theirs a lot we have to go through first a lot coming down she be leaves the rapture is first the be-leavers wont be here for ant off it

    • jesus said we would go through the tribulation. it is the wrath that follows that we won’t be here for.

      however, one exception….those that fit the description of the church of philadelphia….they will be spared.

      • Well…. I think that I am staying.
        Remember when I was going through all of this I expressed that I had the feeling that I had to die for others?

        I just think that I’m staying, and if that is Gods will, then so be it Amen. He will be my Strength in my weakness. All Honor and Glory to Him.

        Praise be unto Yeshua HaMashiach our Most Holy and Blessed King of kings.

        • I too am actually staying. The Lord did tell me this as well. He revealed to me the rapture ( that there really is one) :-), but also revealed to me that I will be here to help/ feed those left behind. He has had me collecting much food and finally revealed to me His plan a few months ago. So…maybe His plan for you has a great purpose.

      • A previous study of mine re-posted.

        To All;

        In Revelation 3:10., Yeshua makes the following statement within his epistle to the Assembly of Philadelphia.

        “Because thou hast kept “the word of my patience”, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”

        The necessary requirement to be “kept” from the, “from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world”, is to “keep the word of His patience”.

        On the surface that sounds simple enough doesn’t it?

        However, if we were to delve into the Greek and its root word etymology we should get a better understanding as to what, “keeping the word of His patience” fully consists of.

        The English “thou has kept” is derived from the Greek “τηρέω”, transliterated as “tēreō”, (Strong’s 5083).
        It is a verb and is defined as, “1) to attend to carefully, take care of . a) to guard. b) metaph. to keep, one in the state in which he is. c) to observe. d) to reserve: to undergo something.”

        Tēreō is derived from the transliterated Greek “theōreō”, (Strong’s 2334).
        It is also a verb and is defined as “1) to be a spectator, look at, behold. a) to view attentively, take a view of, survey. 1) to view mentally, consider. 2) to see. a) to perceive with the eyes, to enjoy the presence of one. b) to discern, descry. c) to ascertain, find out by seeing.”

        Theōreō is derived from the transliterated Greek “theaomai”, (Strong’s 2300).
        it is a prolonged form of a primary verb and is defined as “1) to behold, look upon, view attentively, contemplate (often used of public shows) a) of important persons that are looked on with admiration. 2) to view, take a view of. a) in the sense of visiting, meeting with a person. 3) to learn by looking, to see with the eyes, to perceive.”

        So….. what has been simply written in English as “thou has kept”, would be comprised of all of the above.

        So what is this “patience”, that which we are supposed to keep?

        The English “patience” is derived from the Greek “ὑπομονή”, transliterated as “hypomonē”, (Strong’s 5281).
        It is a feminine noun and is defined as, “1) steadfastness, constancy, endurance. a) in the NT the characteristic of a man who is not swerved from his deliberate purpose and his loyalty to faith and piety by even the greatest trials and sufferings. b) patiently, and steadfastly. 2) a patient, steadfast waiting for. 3) a patient enduring, sustaining, perseverance.”

        Hypomonē is derived from the transliterated Greek “hypomenō”, (Strong’s 5278).
        It is a verb and is defined as, “1) to remain. a) to tarry behind. 2) to remain i.e. abide, not recede or flee. a) to preserve: under misfortunes and trials to hold fast to one’s faith in Christ. b) to endure, bear bravely and calmly: ill treatments.”

        Hypomenō is derived from both the transliterated Greek “hypo” (Strong’s 5259), which is a primary preposition and means, “by or under”, and the transliterated Greek “menō” (Strong’s 3306) which is a root word verb.

        Menō is defined as “1) to remain, abide.
        a) in reference to place. 1) to sojourn, tarry. 2) not to depart. a) to continue to be present. b) to be held, kept, continually.
        b) in reference to time.1) to continue to be, not to perish, to last, endure. a) of persons, to survive, live.
        c) in reference to state or condition. 1) to remain as one, not to become another or different.
        2) to wait for, await one.”

        May Yeshua our Blessed Hope provide all of us who seek Him with a pure heart the strength to “keep His patience”.

        • Accepted – Your post is right on target with my thinking and that is rare wouldn’t you say (smile). We can say with all confidence. The great Temptation is the Apostasy of the church in the last Laodicean age. They are blind, wretched, and Naked and do not KNOW IT. They are unbelievers thinking they are believers. That is the great temptation. The great deception spoken of by Paul and the whole world believing a lie of darkness. Cause they hate the light because it reveals their sins to them.
          Israel itself was the same way when the Messiah came in the 1st. Coming as a “Thief in the night” so it is happened again. The same Yesterday, today, and forever.
          Yet it was 37 years later that their whole nation was gone. They turned Moses law into idolatry with “Temple worship” and God was not in it anymore. They did not know that even after the Passion of Christ was over. It was a complete mystery to the whole nation but a very, few.
          Can people really understand. Its the same way today. People will be running to their church buildings, and their Pastors and Governments for help. And Christ has already come and gone.
          The whole world is religious now. Politicians preach their messages of hope and peace and prosperity and the poor people should know they cannot do it. But they still have hope in their doctrines that the Beastly Systems will save them. It’s pitiful to have to watch these things today.
          I just read a long history of the 70 A.D War between Rome and Israel. The Church in the U.S.A will have to answer for its blindness as well.
          We are passing through another age right now just like natural Israel did. But who knows that. The Seals opened all the Mysteries. And we are into another age just like Blind Israel could not leave their Old System of Moses to Go with New revelational Doctrines of a fanatic called Jesus Christ. Its repeating itself for the 3rd. and last time. Lord bless you brother

  8. Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

    Matthew 24:4-8 – And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilence, and earthquakes,in divers places. All these are the beginnings of sorrows.

    Matthew 24:9-14- Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my names sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall was cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    Many of these false prophets mentioned are right in our churches…the ones that are not teaching that “he is at the door.

    Ezekiel 33: 1-6 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman, 3 and he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows on the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away [a]in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’

    Matthew 24:15-22 – When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (whoso readeth, let him understand) then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house: neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them what give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in winter, neither on the Sabbath day: for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elects sake those days shall be shortened.

    Mark 13:14-20 – 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 Judea flee to the mountains: and let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house: and let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. But woe to them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. For in those days shall affliction, such as was not from the beginning of creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elects’ sake, whom he hath chose, he that shortened the days.

    Mark 13:24-27 – But in those days after the tribulation , the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost parts of the earth to the uttermost parts of heaven.

    Matthew 24:27-28 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For whereso ever the carcass is, there will be the eagles be gathered together.

    The ones that are not raptured will see the abomination ( when the “beast of Revelation” claims to be God. This happens at mid point in the final 7 years…and the woman is told to flee for 1260 days to be nourished. See Revelation 12:6

    What this means above “woe unto them that are with child, and to them what give suck in those days” …goes along with Revelation 12 where the woman travails in birth..she is “with child”…and the woman gives birth to the “Man child”. Woe to the one that is with child is the Christian that is still in travailing in labor…they have not overcome as scripture tells us to so they are not raptured or “caught up” to the throne…they are the woman (church/Christian) that has to flee…the church is the “woman” …in this chapter, whereas the other woman mentioned in Revelation is the “harlot” woman…the antichrist church. They “give suck” in those days because they are still on “milk”…not meat as they should be after professing to be a Christian for a while. Babes in Christ are still on “milk” whereas longer term Christians should be on meat. Read Hebrews 5:12 and and 1st Corinthians 3:2

    Also the “elect” mentioned are the Christians that were not raptured and the ones that gave their life to Christ after the rapture. He “shortens” those days and that is why no one knows “the day or hour” of His return at the END of the final 7 years. Jesus does not appear in the cloud until the end of this last 7 year period. The rapture mentioned in Revelation 12:5…well we do not see Him, we are just “caught up” to the throne of God.

    Jesus is the rider on the white horse that we see in Revelation 19:11-16 – this is when we see him…this is when he returns…there is only one second coming. He does NOT come at the rapture.

    Matthew 24:29-31- Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    He gathers his “elect” ( the ones not raptured and the ones saved after the rapture ) at the last trumpet…the 7th trumpet. See Revelation 11:15-19
    Again then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven…at the end of the tribulation.

    Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn

    Matthew 13:40-43 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.

    This happens at the end of the tribulation as well. First the “tares..non saved” are gathers to “burn them” and then the “wheat – saved” are gathered …all at this return…these are all the ones that did not get raptured.

    Matthew 24:37-41: But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    Genesis 7:23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

    Matthew 13:47-50 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    Luke 17:26-30 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

    Luke 17: 33-36 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together, the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    One is taken and one left….at the END of the tribulation. The one taken is the “tares”…that are destroyed and the ones left are the “wheat”…the saved.

    These are some scripture that tell when the “elect”, “woman”, will be with the Lord…at the end of the tribulation….when Christ DOES return and we SEE HIM in the clouds. Matthew 24:29-31- Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain/left unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descent from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive and remain/left shall be caught up together with them in the cloud to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    1 Corinthians 15:20-23 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ,
    the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

    1 Corinthians 15:51-52 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

    John 6:39-40 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath give me, I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    John 6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. No man can come to me,except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    John 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

    John 11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

    So…all these scriptures above point to “that day or hour no one knows…at the END of the tribulation and these point to that same day that He comes “like a thief in the night” after the END of the tribulation…when he cuts the final 1260 short…but no one knows just how “short” he cuts in so you must keep “watching”.

    Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
    Matthew 24:42-44 Watch therefore: for ye know not in what watch the “thief” would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
    1 Thessalonians 5:2 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a “thief” in the night.

    THEN NOTE….IN Revelation 16:15 after the seventh “vial” which is the last one before Jesus returns to “gather his elect”…”after the tribulation” of those days…

    Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked,and they shall see his shame.

    So…the reason no mans knows the day or hour is first…Jesus “cuts” that time short lest no man survive at the end of the tribulation and then you still do not know that time. That is why he comes as a “thief”…you should be watching and watching and THEN you will see Him in the clouds when He sends His angels to “gather His elect”…

    This said, THIS is what Jesus says to be praying as we start seeing these things begin to happen above in Matthew 24:4-8 before the final 3.5 years begins which is the “Great Tribulation”. He speaks to the seven churches in Revelations Chapters 2 and 3 on what the “overcomers” are promised. Some are NOT promised to escape the tribulation. Those that do not are the “woman” ( those that claim to be Christian) that flees for the last 3.5 years on this earth before you see Jesus return in the clouds to gather His elect AFTER the tribulation of those days.

    Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

    This is where we “escape” it…by being “caught up” to the throne of God. THIS is the rapture verse. No other. Most have this as Jesus being the one that is caught up…but it is not. The book of Revelation was written sometime around 95AD ..after Jesus was crucified. The book of Revelation is for the future time…specifically the “last days”….the final “week” ( 7 years) of Daniel 9:27.

    The Holy Spirit told me this specifically…as I did not even believe in a rapture…at all, thought I was here till the last day..well, I had to eat a lot of words. This is a rapture and the Lord did tell me. And it is soon. VERY SOON.

    Revelation 12:5-6 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness; where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

    The rapture is 75 days before the adomination. The 1335th day it speaks of in Daniel 12:12 speaks of the ones that are blessed and are “caught up unto God, and to His throne”. Then the woman ( the church that is left behind that has not “overcome”) flees to the place prepared for her for 1260 days. Sad to say, some are not promised that protection. Read Revelation chapters 3 and 4 as I said to see what each overcomer is promised. Some are promised hidden manna, some are imprisoned and some are promised tribulation. Not all are “ratpured” to “escape” all these things.

    Daniel 12:12 Blesses is he that waitheth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

    You are blessed if you have made it to this day and are “caught up to the throne of God” 75 days before the abomination (1260 days) and all Hell literally breaks out. Most importantly read what the Lord promises to the church of Philadephia…You want to be one of these for sure….of this church if at all possible as they will “escape all these things”…

    Revelation 3:7….And to the angel of the church of Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth and NO man shutteth; andshutteh, and NO man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

    Revelation 3:10 Because thou has kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

    He will “keep thee” when you are “caught up onto God, and to His throne as it says in Revelation 12:5.

    It is soon. The time of the rapture is “at the door” and He is getting ready to open it. He did warn His people in the past when the time is at hand…he warned them of the VERY DAY it would happen.He told Noah when the door was to be shut and Lot when to leave the city with his family…and he has warned us now…the rapture is at hand. Prepare NOW.

    It is “the time of the end”. The book has been opened.

    Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end.

  9. Hi to All,

    Many of you may perhaps be wondering why I haven’t been as much of contributor here as I have been over the years.
    I personally would have difficulty in attempting to fully explain it if asked, … Yet my buddy John appeared to address more or less the subject today in his blog.

    Scroll down in the Site Updates to the heading “Honesty and Humility” (12/11/12 Kislev 27, 5773), and take that to heart.

    Many here believe that they have full comprehension regarding the Almighty God our Father and His Word, (as I did myself in the past), however… do we really have the capacity to comprehend the Infinite? The Gospel is clear and its message is easily understood by those that the Father calls to The Son, but it is my opinion, in respects to eschatology, that God expresses far too much for us to fully understand its complexity.

    This understanding, (which was experienced during my earlier encounter this year), left me humbled and placed me solely into a position of trust in Him. And in my humility, a state of regret, where I had somehow lost sight, made what knowledge I thought that I possessed into being about “me”. Where the truth of the matter is…
    It Is All About Yeshua.

    May the Lord forgive me for He is Faithful and Righteous.
    May Yeshua, the Worthy and Most Holy Lamb be Praised forever and ever.

    Some of you may very well be Blessed with the truth in revelation by the Spirit. I myself have simply placed all things in His Majestic and Capable Hands.
    Praise the Lord.

  10. Actually, the above song was supposed to be “The Heart of Worship”?

  11. A
    That was truly a blessing, my friend!

    On that note, I would like to share a similar moment, but not in regards to knowledge. (“A”, you will recognize it, but I did not go into details at the time, and even now I will hold some back so that no identities can be revealed.)

    ****Warning: this is not for young people to read.

    There was a family in our area, who had a daughter that had child hood injury which had left her brain dead. She was placed on Life support, where the machines were keeping her alive physically, but she was long gone mentally. Now most families will have a hard time giving up hope that a miracle can occur, But this mother refused to let the life support be turned off for years. When a child is in this state for prolonged periods of time, they send the patients home, with visitation by nurses periodically.

    Some time later, this child was brought back to the hospital, because one of the caregivers had noticed something disturbing. Turns out the girl, now 14, was pregnant. Upon investigation, it was discovered that the father, the brother, and two others had been raping her for years. Not only that, the mother knew about it, and was allowing this.

    This profoundly shook me, and disturbed me, when I heard about it. I could not sleep, and prayed all night, saying, “Lord how could you let this happen?”, and “How can someone be this evil?” Questions I am sure you are asking yourselves now.

    Early that following Morning, having slept very little that night, The Lord lead me to read Luke 18:9-14. His point, That we who sit there and look down on these perversions with a lofty attitude are no better than the pharisees of Jesus day. Our instinct is to condemn those people, and to place ourselves on a pedestal above these sinners. But in actuality, The Pharisee Looking down on the taxcollector and mocking him is Just as grievous a sin as that of these child rapists. Honestly, I prayed similar words in my heart as the pharisee did in the scripture above, The Lord instead showed me that our reaction to this sort of evil and wickedness, when we hear of it, or are confronted by it is to pray as the tax collector did: “…would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast saying ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ ”

    We are all sinners, and every time we sin, we commit as grievous a crime as those child rapists do. Pride is just as dysfunctional as child rape is in the family of God. Do we meet sin in our world with pride or do we meet it with repentence realizing that we are no different. The only difference we can truly boast about is the mercy of God, and blood of Jesus, who suffered on our account in order to forgive us our sins.

    There is a whole lotta phariseeism in all the churches, and I am foremost among them. There is very little in the way of repentence, and a humble and broken Spirit left, that the Lord craves in us. As David puts it: “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” (Psalm 51:17) David wrote this psalm after he was confronted by Nathan about his sin with Bathsheba. It is in this way that we should interpret Matthew 24:44-51. This is what it means to be ready for his second coming.

    This is the message that all revival begins with, May the Lord use these words for his glory. I also echo your words, “May the Lord forgive me, for he is faithful and righteous”. May He be praised.

    God bless.

  12. Thanks Marianne,
    I just hope that in some way this childs life is for the glory of God, Just as Lazarus’ death. We live in a culture where sin is glorified. Even murder does not insense us as it used too. If you ever get a chance, Look up A.W. Tozier’s work on repentence, or David Wilkerson’s. If you look at this in light of the social dialectic, individuals create society, and society molds the individual, then this sickness is shared by all.

    All sin should be viewed with the same disgust, but we have become numbed to many of the sins in of our culture. Abortion, Homosexuality, pornography, drunkeness are the obvious ones, but pride, envy, nicolaitanism, lies, gossip, do not insense us like they should, so as to bring about Godly repentence. It is these sins that lead people to commit these attrocious sins, and we are all to blame.

    I am not trying to take away from individual responsibility here, as the leftists do with the “victimhood” mentality. Just to point out that what many may see as the “New Jerusalem”, is more likely to be Sodom, and the churches that claim to be worshipping God, are in fact worshipping Idols, by putting themselves above other sinners. If you look at the teachings of Jesus, they are bookended by the sermon on the mount, and the olivet discourse. Do we as a church mourn this sin? Does this lead to Godly repentence? Without repentence is no remission of sin. Is the church “beating his fellow servants”? Or are they being “fed at the proper time”, and seen as fellow servants?

    I am afraid to say, the church is not ready for his second coming. We are too busy beating our fellow servants and lording over them, telling them what they should believe. We are too busy socializing amongst ourselves, to go out and help the poor, the sick, and the needy. This is the heart of the Gospel. Jesus came to save that which was lost. The time is now to get out of our comfort zone (the church buildings) and let the testimony of Christ be heard, seen and felt by those who have heard only condemnation and self exaltation from the church. This is how we Love on another as Christ Loved us. This is the step that our brother above has taken, and others will join in the coming months. Who takes a candle and covers it with a Jar of clay? Let the light shine which has been entrusted us. It is only then that the righteous work of Jesus will shine in the world. It is when the Jars of clay are broken, and the light allowed to shine, that Gideons army wins the battle over wickedness. This does not take an army, only a handful of soldiers. The wicked will then be blinded, by the light of his coming. To the wicked, this is three days of darkness, but “light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious merciful and righteous” (Psalm 112:4)

    If you are tired of standing alone, then let your light shine amongst those who need light.
    If you are looking for a sign, then this is what we should be looking for!
    We must use our talents or they will given to those who will.

    “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards man”
    God bless

  13. same message in a song, enjoy

  14. ROMANS 14:17
    For the KINGDOM OF GOD is not meat and drink; but RIGHTEOUSNESS, and PEACE, and JOY in the HOLY GHOST.

    Thy KINGDOM COME thy will be done IN EARTH as it is in HEAVEN.

    In the future or is that NOW — Each Kingdom has a KING ruling it. Did Jesus give us the Kingdom and not Himself. Yet millions waiting on HIS COMING – He’s already come and ye did not know it. After Israel’s rejection of Christ coming. 37 years later – Those Scriptures in Matt. 24 were fulfilled. After apostasy yea God will come. But it will be to destroy. That is the sign of His coming as well. Noah stood alone but He was Right on with his Message. Moses People looked at God on the Mountain. But rejected him and that generation died in the wilderness never knowing God had already come. But Moses was right on still.
    Gods judgment always in the bible is after the rejection of the Word.
    That Proves HE has already COME . God always shows MERCY before JUDGMENT. Abomination of desolation is what is coming next.

    Please ask yourself this very simple question. Could the Jews have still got saved after rejection of Calvary. By following the “out dated” Message of Moses. Jesus took all mankind across the threshold of death. But if you insist and staying with the Old Wine – where you gonna end up.

    Luther’s Message was a good message and New wine for that day. But then came another Message of Sanctification in Wesley’s Revival age. You had to move on into that to have it. Then that Message went on into Pentecost. Then that was a magnification of another New age or Day dawning with MORE Revelation of the word.
    But after Pentecost the Bible speaks of the Latter Rain – And of the Seals being opened up. Explaining all the mysteries that the REFORMERS had scrubbled up. That was Christ Coming down in Rev. 10 with a 7 sealed Message sounding the last day Trump of God. It was Jesus returning to earth with the Full Message about HIMSELF and the WHOLE MYSTERY. It is plain as the nose on your face. No more to reveal dear Children. We are suppose to be the Manifestation of Jesus Christ right now. We are the Body of Christ that the World is watching and wants to stamp out as I speak.
    If Christ is IN YOU a mystery according to Paul. Then after awhile you should be able to discern the difference in Time frames and Ages gone by. We have NO Excuse. This Modern age cannot even discern what a New Birth is let alone the mysteries. Neither could Israel when Jesus looked them right into their eyes. And they called it a devil. They seen HIS miracles and Heard HIS MESSAGE and JOHN’S. That great Sehadrian was so jealous of Christ it tormented them devils. They could not stand to hear HIM speak and let alone their own people listening to HIM.
    Jesus destroyed Satan’s kingdom on the cross. He destroyed Religion. Yet its still here in UN-BELIEVERS called the World.
    If you are “IN CHRIST NOW” you have been taken out of this world already. What are you waiting on. SATAN HAS ALREADY BEEN DEFEATED. Not some of the way but all the way.
    You actually think you gonna float up in your flesh body into the air without dying first. The Flesh has to die. Spiritually and or Physically. To enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Show me this in the Bible. The resurrection in Jesus days was of the SAINTS of the O.T. Mystery revealed they was already dead and in the grave. Then Rose with Christ.
    It is appointed ONCE for man to DIE. After that he recieves his judgment reward. Eternal Death or Eternal Life period.
    As for the Book of Revelation – it is the standard that we go by today to understand what is going on in a MAJOR TURN for the Bride of Christ. If you are not already MARRIED IN UNION With Christ you had better get into the Wedding Chamber and become ONE with HIM your Husband. Why would Jesus want to Marry us after all the trials we bear here on Earth. You get Married on this side. This side is where we all NEED OUR HUSBAND. MILLIONS do not even believe that. I think most people today have let their Denominaion put such FEAR in them over being Decieved. They are AFRAID to ask. They durst not ask Jesus in His day. Is that truth.

    • Tom,
      This is “dru”, in case you did not know. I don’t know if you were responding to me .
      I am not here to argue doctrine this time. The point of what I wrote above was Godly repentence and grief. There are sins that we commit that we do not even know about. I was made aware of the one above by the Lord, and this was my response to it. It was intended to edify the body of Christ, not put a sour taste in its mouth. This is what the prayer in Psalm 139:23-24 is all about. Hidden sin and the exposing thereof, and repentence.

      “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:8-9)

  15. Dear Dru – I was just posting a post – with none other in mind. I get things on my mind sometimes and just post it. As I read a few up above. I agree with most of them. I read your post but did not know it was you. But it was a good post and I read the whole thing. I right now just went back up and read it again to make sure.
    Yes even if we do not sin ourselves but have pleasure in those things that others do. We are guilty as they. That is what the word says. So Lord bless you in all your endeavors is my thoughts for you and anyone that trys to help the Body of Christ. I agree that all have special gifts of somekind.
    My mission is a more doctrinal mission to understanding the mysteries of the Bible. Yet I feel most think I am a hard man. And probably think I’m trying to be a know it all or whatever. It is a hard thing to share things with other’s that you know most will not or cannot except. But somebody has got to do it.
    I’ve know to many Chrisitans in the last 42 years of my walk that are at the same place they was 25 years ago and have not grown any in the Lord and His Knowledge. Something is wrong somewhere if you quit growing amen. When we do not thirst for TRUTH anymore we mise well quit.
    Lord bless you and stay with it Dru. You are an honest believer I sure do believe that. And its good to know you. out for now— ty

  16. Thanks 4 ur quick response to my dreams. May God bless u. I really appreciate 4 ur time and encouragements.
