The definition of the word migrate is as follows: Go from one region to another with the change in the seasons.
The SEASON has changed and we need to understand migration will be the only way to survive the season we have entered over the past twelve months. If you pay attention to the migration of birds you will notice they migrate as the temperatures change from cold-hot, typically winter-summer, however, they are in the preparation stages during the spring and fall. There is a preparation prior to the migration, their ultimate instinct is to be settled once the temperatures support the winter or summer months.
We are now in the preparation phase, unfortunately there are individuals who do not believe it or accept it, and to this they will be left unprepared and caught in the tumultuous events that are shortly to be upon us. As a society we have lost our way and have left God, and we must begin a return back to our Judeo-Christian roots. We have focused on the materialism of our lives for the past 40-50 years, trend setting our lives around “keeping up with the jones” and have left our first true love, God.
Let’s examine the scripture:
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind,” This is the first and greatest commandment.”
This is a very powerful scripture in the fact that Jesus uses the word AND. The word AND is used to encompasses ALL aspects of the text being discussed. Jesus could have used the word OR and the verse would have read like this:
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart or with all your soul or with all your mind,”
If the word OR was used you could pick and choose how to love the Lord and only be judged on how you loved Him, however, because Jesus used the word AND you will judged on how you loved God in His entirety. We must understand God’s entirety is within HOW we love Him, we can love Him emotionally, spiritually or mindfully understanding each is separate, yet all are God. He demands we love Him ALL the time in ALL three areas, not in whatever area fits the season you are in. We are to Love Him in ALL three areas and with ALL three parts.
We have lost site of this (myself included) and have put materialistic items before Him, such as agendas, political correctness, work, school, money etc. The season of materialism has changed and if we do not migrate into the new season we are going to be in trouble, both, nationally and personally, and to be honest with you I believe we are already in trouble nationally, as the news before us is dismal and destructive daily.
Please read my posting on Repent and Pray!! Will it be enough, No Way!! where I discuss the preparation phase. You must prepare yourself for what is coming. I’m not a fortune teller nor can I predict the future, however, I can watch trends and discern what direction the trend is tracking and quite frankly we are fast tracking to complete destruction, economically, politically and spiritually based on the trends before us. We need to pray, love our families, and cut back on all the materialism and activities in our lives, we need to move back towards God. Please read the Bible to your children and allow them to build their faith and relationship with God, this will be the best preparation you can offer your family, it’s the best disaster plan within the world today.. Welcome to the Revelations!!
God Bless the repenter!!
We are going to jump right into the scripture within this discussion. We will begin by reviewing the following scriptures:
Genesis 19: 1-9
1 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. 2 And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.”And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.” 3 But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.” 6 So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, 7 and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! 8 See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.” 9 And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. 10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.
Please pay attention to these key verses: 1, 5,6,7,8
In verse one Lot was sitting inside the gate of Sodom, and watched as the two angels of the Lord showed themselves to Lot, we can discern this because Lot puts his head down in humility towards the ground, knowing well their presence in Sodom is not to be cordial. As we continue to read verses 5-8 the two angels enter into Lot’s house and within a period of time the towns men come to the house and begin to beat on the door, urging Lot to send out the two men who had entered the house earlier. The men of the town wanted to engage them in a carnal way according to the scriptures and what does Lot do, he opens the door and begins to negotiate with the men outside his door. He actually offers the men his two daughters and states the following: AND YOU MAY DO TO THEM AS YOU WISH. Lot actually would have allowed his two daughters to be raped and or killed, AND, he knew the men within his dwelling were angels of Lord and would protect his family from any harm. The proof is in verse 9:11where the ANGELS said this; (11) And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.
Now, lets move onto Noah since we established a little history about Lot.
I will keep the history of Noah brief because we are all aware of the Ark story which has made Noah a household name, irregardless of one’s belief.
Review Genesis 6: 16-17
“You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with a lower, second, and third decks. (17) ” And behold, I Myself am bringing the flood of waters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; and everything that is on the earth shall die.
Review Genesis 7: 7
So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his son’s wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.
Review Genesis 7:10
And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth.
It is clear once it began to rain after the first seven days the water level began to show signs of flooding and Noah and his family entered the ark. If we look now at the end of verse 16 it is clear: AND THE LORD SHUT HIM IN.
If we look at the positions of Lot and Noah we can clearly see a distinction, one has a compromising belief system and the other has a conviction belief system. These two men facing strenuous situations acted differently yet both men had the protection of God, Lot with the two angels of the Lord and Noah with God Himself, yet one compromises and opens the door to the house and begins to negotiate with the outside world, compromising the integrity of his house to appease the carnal aspects of the flesh.
Noah, faced with rising flood waters does not turn back towards the carnal aspects of the flesh, he does not go out calling to the world, he does not send his sons out to save anyone, he does not jeopardize his family. He entered the ark as commanded by God and did not turn from his conviction nor his belief in God, he did not compromise.
If we take a second look at Lot in Genesis 14:11-12
Then they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their provisions, and went their way. (12) They also took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
Continue with verse 14
Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.
We can clearly see Lot did not learn a lesson, he was taken prisoner in the above verses as Sodam and Gamorrah where attacked and raided, yet, in chapter 19 vs 1 above we read Lot is sitting inside the gate of Sodom. How is it a man given endless blessings from his family and from God continues to make his way back to the carnality of Sodam.
The reality is Lot had a spirit of compromise and Noah had a spirit of conviction. If we look at the world today and the stories of Lot and Noah and our own lives what type of spirit do we have?
Is it one of compromise or conviction?
- Are we allowing pornography into our homes?
- Are we allowing alcohol (excessive) into our homes?
- Are we allowing worldly words into our house (swearing)?
- Are we allowing inappropriate TV shows into our homes, showtime, HBO etc?
- Are we reading the scriptures daily?
- Are we protecting our family everyday with prayer?
- Are we turning off the HBO, Showtime, etc?
- Are we turning off the radio garbage of lyrics like, death, drugs, murder etc?
Through compromise Lot lost everything including some family members. Through conviction Noah sustained no losses, only favor and blessings from God. What path are we taking? I understand we are all sinners and no one is righteous and all fall short of the glory of God, yet, we must choose a position we are going to live within, a position of compromising for the world or conviction for God. I’ve chosen conviction, understanding it’s not perfection for none are perfect. What is it if a man gains the world yet looses his soul?
God Bless the Repenter!!
In studying chapter 4 of judges you will be able to paint a picture within your minds eye the reality that history is about to repeat itself. We must also understand history has and will continue to repeat itself until the second coming of Jesus Christ. The reason for this is laid out within Ephesians chapter 6:10-12 which reads as follows:
Finally my brethren be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. (11) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
These verses are clear that we are constantly battling within the realm of Spiritual Warfare. We are not wrestling against flesh and blood (PERSONALITIES) but against PRINCIPALITIES which are demonic leaders and rulers within the spiritual world which actually claim the battle is against the devil himself and his demons. The battle is over darkness which most individuals suffer from, which is SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS. There are believers and non believers who are spiritually blind and never fully understand this is why history repeats itself.
The fact is flesh and blood are as ashes to ashes and dust to dust yet principalities and rulers continue to influence and agitate. This is why so many individuals battle with repetitive sin. The influence continues because we do not discipline ourselves to putting on the armour of God.
The spiritual armour you must put on is as follows: (verses)
(15) Gospel of Peace
(17) Word of God
We must understand (world-sin-individual) history continues to repeat itself because of the principalities and rulers of the darkness which where here from the beginning and will be here till the second coming of Christ Himself. We are once again witnessing history repeat itself because the influencing spirit over the area of Iran Iraq etc is actively influencing the leaders of the region / territory, specifically the leaders of Iran and the PLO.
Lets breakdown Judges chapter 4:
A prophetess named Deborah is judging Israel, which is being tormented by Jabin the King of Canaan and Sisera the military leader of Jabins army. Deborah, who is part of the political process has called upon a military leader named Barak to defend Israel against the military of Sisera. The call for Barak to attack Sisera comes by a very demanding Deborah, who insists God will deliver Sisera unto the hands of Barak. We also read the political tension between Deborah and Barak is intesifyig because they are concerned with who receives the glory from the people after Sisera is destroyed. After much prodding from Deborah Barak decides to stand against Sisera and prevails in defeating his massive army.
Lets breakdown Iran today:
A high ranking State Department official named Hillary Clinton has been standing in the gap for Israel and has been a harsh critic of Iran and their determination to obtain nuclear weapons. Hillary has made her position very clear about Iran and has been decisively more critical of their leadership than the President, Barak Obama. The President has actually been quite reserve in his critique of Iran, he has actually advocated for their research of nuclear energy even with their anti-Semitic positions towards Israel. Is History repeating itself, are we witnessing the re-emergence of the principalities and powers of the darkness over the region of Iran influencing the Clerics and military leaders to obtain nuclear weapons ad threaten the existence of Israel. The interesting dilemma is between Clinton and Obama, they are both politically active and have a history of polling the people of America prior to major decisions. Could they be politically posturing and using the Iranian conflict for future political gain as did Barak and Deborah of Judges chapter 4.
The truth is we cannot stop history from repeating itself, but, we can stop ourselves from repeating the same sin over and over. We must put on the whole armour of God all of which are spiritual principles. This armour does not make us righteous, but does shield us from the fiery darts of the enemy. The spiritual armour is what allows you and I to come before our Lord and ask for forgiveness of our sins, it’s the armour of God, which allows us to enter His throne room.
HINT: If you continue to repeat the same sin, you may have a piece of armour missing, or you never fully bought the whole armour of God.
God Bless The Repenter!!
Can we look back at the past and see if history through principalities and rulers of the darkness is influencing the current political agenda of this once great country.
Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph (9) And he said unto his people, Behold the people of the children of Israel are more mightier than we: (10) come on, let us deal wisely with them: lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that when there falleth out any war they join also unto our enemies ad fight against us, and get them up out of the land. (11) Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. (12) But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel. (13) And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: (14) And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve was with rigour.
I will break down each verse here: (Now think of our political climate today)
(8) A new king who knew not Joseph (One who knew not the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob) We have witnessed Pres. Obama disregard the “National Day Of Prayer, yet honor Ramadan, does this allude to him not knowing our Judeo-Christian founding?
(9) Behold the children of Israel are more mightier than we (The opposition groups are greater in numbers than we are) Are we witnessing increased opposition , such as Tea Parties etc?
(10) Come let us deal with them wisely, lest they multiply ( The word wisely in this verse is the word is Harham in Hebrew and means : To deceive) Are we witnessing deception by this admin?
(11)Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them (The word taskmasters in this verse is the word Mass in Hebrew and means: enforced payment) Are we seeing increased TAXES, which are enforced payments?
(11) built for Pharaoh treasure cities (The word treasure in this verse is the word Miskaof in Hebrew and means: To store up treasure, gold, silver etc) Are we witnessing the Presidents administration store up treasure by taking over the banks within this country?
(12)But the more they afflicted them the more they multiplied and grew (The word afflicted in this verse is the word Ana in Hebrew and means: To oppress) Are we witnessing the tea parties and opponents to the administration grow and multiply due to their politics?
(13) And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour (The word serve in this verse is the word Avaad in Hebrew and means: To work for another, labour) Are we witnessing the potential for these taxes to be pushed onto our children and their children, oppressing them?
(14) And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick and all manner of service in the field (The word hard in this verse is the word Kashar in Hebrew and means: Difficult, severe. The word bondage in this verse is the word Avodar in Hebrew and means: Service, work, labour) Due to policies of this administration are we witnessing difficult severe hard labour just to make ends meet?
If you continue to read the rest of Exodus chapter 1 you will clearly read the fact that the new Pharaoh put out a decree to have the mid-wives perform forced abortions of all male babies born unto the Hebraic women. Has Obama been a advocate for abortions, absolutely yes, he has reversed anti-abortion legislation by executive order and has open the way for International funding for abortions.
Also, lets review the practicing religious beliefs of some past presidents.
#27 Taft (Unitarian) #28 Wilson (Presbyterian) #29 Harding (Baptist) #30 Coolidge (Protestant) #31 Hoover (Quaker) #32 Roosevelt (Episcopalian) #33 Truman (Baptist) #34 Eisenhower (Presbyterian) #35 Kennedy (Roman Catholic) #36 Johnson (Disciples of Christ) #37 Nixon (Quaker) #38 Ford (Episcopalian) #39 Carter (Baptist) #40 Reagan (Presbyterian) #41 Bush (Presbyterian) #42 Clinton (Baptist) #43 Bush (Methodist) #44 Obama (Unaffiliated)
Why hasn’t President Obama selected a church? Why did he denounce the Day of Prayer?
The number 44 within the scripture means JUDGEMENT!! Pres. Obama is #44, is America under God’s judgement? Is the new King influenced by principalities and rulers of the darkness that have coerced evil decisions in the past?
Welcome to the Revelation!!
