Last night (7/30/15), Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemita, spoke at Church of His Presence in Daphne, Alabama. I cannot emphasize enough that if you did not get to hear him, please go to the archived messages of the church when the message is posted and listen to his warnings as well as his encouragement. If you are in a quandary about what is happening in our nation and where our nation is headed, you need to listen to what this man has to say.

Shortly, there will be Christian pastors and so-called apostles and prophets who will wish they had listened, who will wish they had warned their congregations of what is coming. But, it will be too late. The Bible prophets warned that in their day there was no help from pastor or prophet because they were too busy trying to figure out how to feed and take care of their own family.

Right now, it is every man for himself. If you have sense enough, do your own Bible research, do your own study, listen to the warnings others are not giving. Listen for the sake of your family, your friends, your neighbors, and yes, even your enemies. You will be glad you did. This is not doom and gloom.

I live in Florida. If a hurricane was coming, I would want to know. I would want the public officials to tell me so I could prepare. Well, there is a storm of judgment coming on the United States, and what is coming will be so overwhelming that our government programs will be useless because the disasters will be so widespread. This is the time to prepare. Be warned and prepare!


To the African-American Community in Crestview, Florida: A Prophetic Message Just for YOU!
Larry Grecu

July 31, 2015
On May 15th I had a dream in which the Lord spoke to me to send out a warning to the African-American community in Crestview, whether Christian or non-Christian, and tell them to store food. The Lord spoke to me in the dream that if people did the best they could, He would take care of the rest.

Then, the Lord spoke to me to prepare 1000 pamphlets with the May 15th warning and with the word He gave me in 2008 regarding Crestview and Baker as cities of refuge. (I have spoken to the Crestview city council over a year ago about the need to prepare for an influx of refugees into Crestview and Baker). You can read all about this in the current pamphlet.

If you would like to have some copies to distribute to your family, friends and neighbors, please feel free to contact me via FB. Some families have taken the pamphlet to read, but more need to be warned. If what the Lord is speaking to me about coming judgments on America is true, you will be glad you prepared. Remember that even in the days of the Exodus, the warnings of the coming judgments were sent out to Jew and Egyptian alike. When Pharaoh wouldn't listen, some of his own people finally decided to take matters into their own hands and run for cover! Their Egyptian government did not know what it was doing, other than getting them all killed! Well, what I am offering you is a cover!

Again, if you are interested in getting some copies of the May 15th prophecy and the 2008 prophecy to give out to your friends and neighbors, please let me know. I will do everything I can to get you as many copies as you think you can give out. Take it from me: time is short, and the sooner people can prepare the better. God bless!


There Is Going To Be One Crestview Pastor Who Will Have Hell To Pay If He Does Not Warn His Congregation about What Is Coming and Give Them Time To Prepare!
Larry Grecu

July 31, 2015

Recently, I gave a local Crestview pastor a copy of the pamphlet I wrote regarding storing food and a cd copy of a radio interview with Mena Grebbin on Rick Wiles radio program Mrs. Grebbin tells of a dream and an angelic visitation she had regarding storing food. If you haven't heard her interview, I would strongly encourage you to do so before it is too late. Anyway . . .

Much to my surprise, I found out that the pastor has not shared this information with his congregation, and pretty much, the congregation is asleep as to the possibility that it might be a good idea to store food and water. Well, folks, here is what is going to happen. I am quoting from Jeremiah's book of Lamentations, chapter 1, verse 19: "I called for my lovers, but they deceived me: my priests and mine elders gave up the ghost in the city, while they sought their meat to relieve their souls."

There is coming a famine in the land! And, both priests (your local pastors/apostles and so-called prophets) and the elders (the church board/"yes" men) are not going to be able to help you. Why? Because they will be dying in the streets while trying to find food to feed their own families! Is this doom and gloom? Well, not if you store food and water - enough for the next few months. Of course, you might want to store some for your pastors and elders. From the sounds of what Jeremiah said - you know, the doom and gloom prophet of his day - they are going to need it!

By the way, this church pastor I mentioned above is all into revival. But, he needs to listen to what the Lord spoke to Pastor John Kilpatrick after 9/11. Brother John asked the Lord if revival was over for the United States. The Lord told him that it was NOT over. BUT, He said that the revival that was coming would be in conjunction with end times events. In case you don't know what those are, check out Matthew 24!

Jesus was the Prophet who warned that in the last days there would be famines (He was such a doom and gloom-er!) In my Bible, I read where a prophet showed up at church one day and told the people a famine was coming. This happened in the early Church. You know what the Church did? PREPARED! They weren't out there praying in tongues, binding the devil, and singing "I'll Fly Away"! They were preparing.

Most of us who are urging people to prepare are being told that we don't have faith if we prepare or that we are moving in fear! Our accusers need to read Hebrews 11:7. Of course, if you want to go ahead and believe our accusers, if you are going to depend on your pastors, prophets and elders, good luck! You are going to need it.

Folks, it's time for you to read your own Bible and make your own decisions for the sake of your family, friends, neighbors, and even your enemies. Go ahead and accuse me of anarchy in the church! I don't care. For the pastor who does not warn his church to prepare, for the church member who sits in the pew and lets the pastor tell him what is right and wrong, here is my warning. You will be listening to the screams of your congregation and your fellow church members as they perish along with you in the streets of your local city (Lamentations 1:19). Read that Scripture again if you dare! In fact, take the time to read the whole book of Lamentations today. It just might be the wakeup call you need!

Beach Trip 2015

Part One

The First Warning:

Don't Leave Me Behind When You Go on Your Vacation! - GOD

When my wife and I were traveling to Seagrove Beach, Florida, for our week-long family vacation, my mind was in another place. It was not on the fun, food, and fellowship we were going to have - even though I knew we would have a relaxing time. Instead, my mind was on a warning that the Lord had given to our family through a dream that Connie had had a few weeks before our vacation started.

The warning was basic, serious, and scary. To paraphrase, the Lord said, "You can go on your vacation, but just don't forget Me! If you forget Me and let your guard down, you will be in serious trouble. If you forget Me, you will not be prepared for what is coming. You will be caught completely off guard!" So, needless to say, I went on vacation determined that I was going to be tuned in to the Spirit of God no matter what. I was not going to let myself be distracted.

It was not too long into our vacation that the Lord began to speak.

Part Two
The Second Warning: A Question about the Book of Jude
Larry Grecu

As we were stuck in traffic waiting to cross the Destin Bridge, the Lord showed up. He began by asking me a question. "Why do you think that I allowed the book of Jude to be put in the Bible right before the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ?" Knowing that His answer would be better than mine, I just sat and listened. He said, "It is there because you are going to see the acts of the apostates happening right before I begin judging the Church and the world."
When I heard the words, "acts of the apostates," I immediately thought of a book I had bought several years ago entitled, Jude - The Acts of the Apostates, by S. Maxwell Coder. I highly recommend this book, as it goes into detail about what apostasy looks like, both corporately and individually. And, you will be surprised to see just who is involved in the apostasy! It's like reading today's headlines! Folks, if you are unsure that we are living in the time of the great falling away spoken of in II Thessalonians 2:3, then you need to read this book. It is definitely a wakeup call - a siren going off, an alarm shouting, "Urgent! Urgent! Read this message before it is too late!"
Because traffic continued moving slowly, I asked Connie if she would open her Bible and read me the whole book of Jude (all 25 verses). As she was reading, I thought to myself, "O, dear God, we ARE in the time of the apostates! You are warning me (us) that we are not only in the time of the apostates, but also in the approaching time of the manifestation of the man of sin and Your judgment(s)!" What a warning!
How could I have been so blind, though, not to have seen this? I knew things were bad; I knew things appeared to be going downhill morally at an ever-increasing rate of speed. But, I had never really thought of the book of Jude and its message of apostasy in relation to the book of Revelation. I had never really thought of the SMALL book of Jude as a VERY BIG warning to us of just where we are on God's countdown to judgment.
My mind was reeling from what the Lord was speaking, but again, I was thankful. I knew God was giving me a weapon that would keep me awake and alert on this vacation! Of course, God wasn't through speaking yet.
We had hardly gotten to the beach house when the third message came in loud and clear. If you're from Pensacola and the surrounding cities, you just might want to sit up and take notice!

Part Three
The Third Warning: "13beach13"
A Prophetic Warning to Our Government and the Homosexual Communities throughout Our Nation for Violating the Word of God and Decreeing What God Calls an Abomination Legal
Larry Grecu

As I walked into the beach house which would be our vacation house for a week, I had a haunting, frightening reminder going through my mind, a reminder that the Lord had given to my wife in a dream before we took our two summer vacations, one to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and the other to Seagrove Beach, Florida.
In my wife's dream, the Lord spoke to her that He was going to allow us to go on vacation, but it was to be a time where we could not forget Him. A time where we could not relax to the point of turning off His voice of warnings. A time where we could not be put back to sleep by the enemy of our souls, the enemy who is out to steal, kill and destroy.
So, needless to say, I had my spiritual antennae up the whole time, not wanting to miss anything the Lord had to say. I do not want you to think that my week was nothing but doom and gloom. We did have fun with the family. But, I thank God that I have children who know the importance of serving the Lord 24/7, even if you are at the beach! I thank God that I have children who do not think it strange when I come up with some of the warnings the Lord has given to me, but seriously take them to heart.
We were hardly a couple of hours into our beach stay when I asked the following simple question, "What is the password to the free Wi-Fi?" The response was not quite what I was expecting. I actually felt nauseous when I got my answer - nauseous to the point of telling everyone to pack their bags because we were getting out of there, and fast. What was this curious password? Well, when I tell you, it probably won't mean anything to you. However, if you will be patient, I will explain to you why it was very meaningful to me, and why it is a warning of something coming, a warning we cannot fail to heed.
The response to my Wi-Fi question? "13beach13."
A feeling of shock came over me. Only the Lord could have known how to get my attention in such a specific way. You see, on another family vacation to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in June 2012, the Lord had given me a message involving the number 13. And, here's the background. (If you live in or around Pensacola, Florida, you will want to pay special attention!)
While on this 2012 vacation, our daughter, Cindy, came into our room and told my wife and me that the city of Pensacola had been hit with a torrential flood. We quickly turned on the TV to the Weather Channel to get the details. According to one report, the airport had recorded that the rainfall amount was 13.13 inches within a few hours. When I heard this number, the Lord immediately spoke to me and said, "Read Genesis 13:13."
I had no idea what Genesis 13:13 said, nor did I even have any idea if there were thirteen verses in Genesis 13. But, I was in for a big surprise. Here is what Genesis 13:13 says: "But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly." Now, why would God point out that verse, and only that verse, regarding the torrential downpour in Pensacola, Florida? Here's why. For the first time in its history, the Pensacola LGBT community had received support from a sitting politician, none other than Pensacola Mayor Ashton J. Hayward, III.
On June 1, 2012, eight days before the flood, the Mayor of the city of Pensacola issued a proclamation proclaiming "June 10-17, 2012, as PENSACOLA PRIDE FESTIVAL WEEK in the city of Pensacola and urge(d) all citizens to recognize and celebrate diversity, humanity and equal rights for our entire community. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the City of Pensacola to be affixed this 1st day of June, 2012." (I would highly recommend that you go on the Internet and read the entire proclamation of the Honorable Mayor). Remember! This was in 2012, and we all know what has happened in our country since then.
For those of you who may not have read your Bibles lately, I may need to give you a little lesson here. According to the Bible, when the head of a government acts on behalf of a city or nation, whether for good or bad, it has an effect on the entire population, whether for good or bad! Back in 2012, the Honorable Mayor of the city of Pensacola, Ashton J. Hayward, III, decided to violate the Word of God and make a proclamation on behalf of the LGBT community in support of what God calls an abomination. Therefore, he left God no choice but to give Mr. Hayward and the city of Pensacola a wakeup call.
We all know that now in 2015, the Supreme Court and the President of the United States have fully endorsed the redefining of marriage. They have told us that marriage is no longer a covenant between one man and one woman. By law, our government has proclaimed that marriage can be a covenant between two men and two women as well. In other words, our Supreme Court and our President, Barack Hussein Obama, II - just like the Honorable Mayor of the city of Pensacola - have endorsed what God calls an abomination.
Well, I have told you what I believe - what I know - was God's reaction to the Honorable Mayor's endorsement of Gay Pride Festival Week, June 10-17, 2012, in Pensacola, Florida. I know that if God judged the city of Pensacola with a warning, He will judge our nation from north to south and from east to west with a warning for allowing this abomination. God is no respecter of persons, cities or nations. He is righteous in His judgments. So, what can we expect from a warning such as "13beach13"?
Here is what the Lord spoke to me.
There is coming a judgment along the beach areas of the United States. It will signal God's displeasure with our nation's decrees against His Word regarding homosexual marriage. This will be a limited judgment. The Lord spoke to me that the numbers 13 on each side of the word "beach" set the boundaries for His judgment. In other words, just as Abraham was able to view the effects of the catastrophic destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, so also will people see the destruction God is bringing, but not be affected by it.
Folks, I wish I had good news to report, but I don't. If our nation continues to defy God, catastrophic judgments are inevitable. God is no respecter of persons. The only Good News I have is that if our nation repents, God will repent of the judgments that are coming. God is not willing that any perish. However, we have a choice as a nation. Like Nineveh in the book of the prophet Jonah, we can repent or suffer the consequences. We can believe the prophets and prosper, or we can ignore the warnings and face what I believe is imminent destruction. We must quit ignoring the prophets and begin believing that what they are warning us of is true. It is that simple.
I hear a lot of people crying out to God for His mercy on our country. Listen up!God IS having mercy on our country simply by warning us. We cannot continue spurning the mercies of God! As the saying goes, the ball is now in our court(s). May we as a nation be willing to believe God and repent. Otherwise, there will be no turning back the judgment hand of Almighty God.
Believe it or not, the beach saga continues. What happened next was a frightening warning from God from three chapters in the Bible. Each chapter was from a separate book in the Bible, but all three chapters had something in common. They were all Chapter 18 in their respective books. A coincidence? I don't think so. If you are interested in finding out what the Lord is saying, read on.

The Fourth Warning: 18-18-18
Larry Grecu
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence shall that great city Babyon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all" (Revelation 18:21).

As I sat at the beach house reading the above verse, something came over me. I sensed a warning from God of a coming catastrophic calamity that is going to hit the United States of America. Yes, I know that the verse speaks of Babylon. Actually, most of Revelation 18 deals with Babylon and God's judgment on it. However, there is something that has happened in our country, and in the city of Washington, D.C., in particular, that has caused our country to morph into what I would consider a modern-day Babylon.
The decision of the United States Supreme Court to legalize what the Bible calls an abomination - homosexual marriage - has put our country on the fast track to judgment. If you think gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders are going to stop at getting homosexual marriage legalized, think again. The descent into the reprobate mind will not stop with homosexual marriage. Next will come the legalization of pedophilia, and when this happens, watch out! God will answer with destruction unimaginable. How do I know this?
As I was reading Revelation 18:21, my eyes suddenly focused on one word in the verse: MILLSTONE! Sound familiar? Well, if you read your Bible, it should. There is another passage in the Bible that uses the word MILLSTONE, and it is found in Matthew 18:6. But, let me tell you verse five first:

And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me (verse 5).  BUT whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea (verse 6).

How frightening this verse should be to anyone wanting to satisfy the lusts of their flesh through pedophilia! How frightening this verse should be to the nation that would even think of legalizing pedophilia! But, do you think that Washington, D. C., will care? Do you think that the wealthy homosexuals are going to stop with gay marriage? No! They will pay to have pedophilia legalized, and our politicians who lust for filthy lucre (on both sides of the aisle) will gladly bow the knee to the mental health gurus in our society who are ready to tell them that pedophilia is not a mental aberration but instead is a sexual preference on the same level as heterosexuality.
So, watch out and be aware, Mom and Dad, when the day comes when your little Johnny or your little Susie comes home with the newly mandated, required public school curriculum forcing your child to be indoctrinated into homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, transgender, and pedophilia - all in the name of health and wellness! Most of this education is already occurring in California!
Folks, unless the United States of America turns around, you can expect to see God completely abandon her to a reprobate mind. And, when the cup of iniquity is full, mark my word, catastrophic judgment will fall with all of its horrors and terrors. Be warned: God has a great millstone and a mighty angel ready to throw it into the sea, and the chief city in the United States, Washington, D. C., will be no more!


And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the Lord your God. After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. You shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the Lord your God. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord (Leviticus 18:1-5).
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination (Leviticus 18:22).

The above verses were found, as you can see, in Leviticus 18, the final chapter in the trilogy of chapters that began with the number 18. In Biblical numerology, the number 18 is the number of bondage. The children of Israel were in bondage to different nations several times, but the two greatest bondages occurred when the Israelites were in Egypt and Babylon. As our government continues to descend into darkness and takes on the characteristics of Egypt and Babylon, you can expect to see two things happen: the release of God's people from bondage, and judgment on our nation that will be comparable to the judgments that fell on Egypt and Babylon.
The final verses of Leviticus 18 should be a solemn warning to the United States of America, to the President, to the Supreme Court justices, to the members of Congress, and to each one of us individually. God warned the Israelities, and He is warning us today:

Defile not yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore do I visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth our her inhabitants. 

Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God (Leviticus 18:24-30).

In conclusion, let me tell you something that a friend of mine pointed out to me when I told him of this experience. The number 18, the number of bondage in the Bible, is the sum of three of the same number: 6 + 6 + 6. Do you think God is trying to warn us how close we are to the end, how close we are to having to make a choice between serving God or serving Baal? Think of this: three chapters, all three number 18, and then three times, 6 + 6 + 6. Coincidence? I don't think so. It is definitely time that we wake up and take heed.

Beach Trip 2015

Part Five
The Final Sign: What Price Will You Pay?
Larry Grecu

As our Beach Trip 2015 was reaching a conclusion, little did I know that God had one more message for me. Connie and I had left the beachhouse right before checkout, and I knew that the first thing that we had to do was to find a gas station, as I was almost running on fumes. Trying to find a gas station to pull into was very difficult that morning because it seemed that everyone was leaving the beach the same time we were. So, it was not until we were quite a ways down the road before we were able to stop for gas.
Of course, that was easier said than done. We had to go through the Santa Rosa Outlet Mall, find one of the exits from the mall that had a light, and then cross over a very crowded Highway 98 and pull into the Shell station. Then, there was the line we had to wait in. I kept thinking that I was going to have to roll to the gas pump if the delay was any longer. At last my turn came to pump gas.
I was just sitting there minding my own business, letting the pump do its thing. Fortunately, I was able to use the device on the handle of the pump so I did not have to hold the nozzle while the car was being filled. This seemed to take forever, but I should not have been surprised since I was definitely running on fumes. Finally, I heard the "click" of the handle, letting me know that the car was at last filled. Now, mind you, I was just letting the pump do its thing. (Look, Mom, no hands!) What I saw, though, when I looked up at the cost for the gas left me in a state of shock! This was something only God could have orchestrated. The final cost: $66.60.
There it was again, 666. Folks, if you do not think we are in the time of the mark of the beast; if you do not think we are in the time when we will not be able to buy or sell unless we have the mark; if you do not think we are living in perilous times, then you better think again. I hope that you do not take lightly what I have written in this five-part warning. Jesus exhorted his disciples to watch and pray, and if ever there was a need to follow this admonition, now is the time.
Feel free to share these warnings with your friends and neighbors.
They may serve as an open door to those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
God bless until next time!

Dream of July 26, 2015

Larry Grecu

Baker, Florida

On Sunday morning, July 26, 2015, I had a dream about an earthquake occurring in Cincinnati, Ohio. The earthquake occurred during the work day. I knew this because, in the dream, men were walking around in white shirts with ties, attire you would expect to find an office worker wearing. I knew that these men had fled the buildings they worked in as the earthquake hit. However, others were not so fortunate. From the collapsed buildings of the downtown area, there were many people screaming and crying out for help .

I then saw these businessmen walking around the streets looking for some way to assist the people who were yelling for help, but they had nothing to work with. They had absolutely nothing! They kept looking for a way to help, equipment to use to move parts of buildings, but there was none! In fact, they even were looking for help from the government, but again there was NONE - absolutely no government assistance was coming to Cincinnati, Ohio!  NONE!

This was the warning I was given in the dream. I was told in the dream that the United States government was not going to be able to help anyone in this disaster. Why? Because there were disasters happening all over the country at the same time, catastrophic events of ALL KINDS - not just earthquakes. The government agencies that people had depended on in the past were so overwhelmed and stretched to the breaking point that they could not send help to anyone in Cincinnati, Ohio. No help was coming from the government, absolutely NONE!

So, what is the dream's warning, and what am I warning you about today? If you are not prepared for what is coming, you better wake up and prepare! Be prepared to help those who are going to need help. Do not be among those needing help. God is warning all of us: help is not going to come from our government. Help is not going to come from your unprepared coworkers. The time to prepare is NOW! Do not wait until it is too late. The Lord is saying through this dream, "You are not going to have anyone to help you when the disaster(s) hits!"

Friends, if you do not know what to do, ask the Lord for wisdom. The Bible says that He gives wisdom to ALL men and doesn't criticize them for asking. He causes His sun to shine and His rain to fall on the just and the unjust alike. You don't have to be caught in the dark, not knowing what is happening or what to do!  Seek the Lord while He may be found! NOW is the acceptable time! TOMORROW just may be too late!

To All My Facebook Friends Who Are Gay or Lesbian, or Have Children Who Are Gay or Lesbian
I have friends on FB who are gay or lesbian. I also have friends who have children who are gay or lesbian. I have heard preachers who have said that overcoming the sin of homosexuality is impossible or almost impossible. How hopeless are statements like these! I am no longer a member of their group or church. Truthfully, these so-called preachers of the Gospel are NOT preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, which offers hope to ALL sinners, of which I am the chief! Either the Gospel of Jesus Christ can do what no psychiatrist can do, what no sex change can do, or the Bible is a lie. Let God be true and every man a liar!

Recently, I came across a book called Two of Me, by the late pastor David Wilkerson, of Time Square Church, New York City. Below is a section of the book (Chapter Two). If you are saved and are struggling with sin, no matter what your sin is, this book offers hope because it is the truth. If you are a homosexual or lesbian who thinks that there is no hope for you, this is for you. I have said over and over again that Jesus died for us, Jesus loved us (past tense) while we were without strength, while we were still sinners, while we were ungodly, while we were enemies of God. If you are waiting for God to accept you if you get your act together, get over it.

How many of us Christians tried to get our act together before we were saved? It doesn't work that way. He will accept you just as you are; he will change you; you can be born again; He will forgive you! How many of us Christians, after we were saved, tried to please God in our own strength, and failed miserably? We actually found ourselves back in what we had left behind! Let's be honest! Is it a hopeless situation? The answer is NO! The problem is that most pastors and Christians DO NOT KNOW THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!

The gospel is what it says it is: the power of God unto salvation to every one who believes - Jew or Gentile. I think that most of you know that I firmly believe that judgment is coming on our country, the likes of which we could never imagine. Just remember, that though the judgment comes on the country, judgment by God is a personal issue. None of us wants to experience the wrath of God against sin. Is there hope in the midst of the warnings? Is there a way of escape? The answer is YES! I want you all to realize that there is still time to turn to God who has already turned to you.

I don't care what sin you are bound to, Jesus loved you; Jesus died for you; Jesus will forgive you; Jesus will come and make His home in you; Jesus will give you His Holy Spirit to strengthen you when you are weak! He is awesome! In other words, He is everything He says He is! Everything I have ever needed, I have found in Him. The Good News is that God is no respecter of persons. What He has done for me, He can and will do for you! There is hope!

How crazy is this hope? Here's how far God will take you. This is what God's Word says to believers (and you won't hear this in most churches): "Beloved, NOW we are the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be. But, we know that when He shall appear, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM, for we shall see Him as He is." This is how far God says He can take us, believe it or not! As for me and my house, we choose to believe this is exactly what God will do, and this is the hope and expectation that we are extending to every sinner and saint alike!

Now, here is what David Wilkerson says:

"I am at the place that I believe it is the uncharitable Christian, so harsh and unforgiving, who drives the sinner away from the redeeming power of Christ. The church often drives people with life-controlling problems to reckless abandon and despair by their phony, pious ferocity against their sin. Christians, who are themselves victims of all manner of temptations, often shut out the habituated by telling them they are hopeless cases. This judgmental attitude says to the sinner, "Keep going deeper into your sin! You are hopeless! The Bible condemns you, so give yourself over to your iniquity. You are already lost, so we won't waste our time trying to help you.

"A young lesbian who attended one of my meetings told me of her difficulty with church people accepting her--even after her conversion to Christ.

"I wish Christians would quit 'totem poling' sins and treat everybody alike. They tend to put homosexuals on the bottom when it comes to being concerned about them, and on top of the pole when it comes to judging them as hopeless.

"I get tired of Christians accepting converted adulterers, prostitutes, alcoholics, masturbators, and then recoiling like vipers when homosexuals seek help. They seem on the verge of throwing up when they talk to me; they watch my every move; they eyeball and analyze me, looking for errors. They can't forget my past, as if Jesus came into this world to save everybody but homosexuals."

"No wonder sin is driven underground. No wonder people with life-controlling habits tend to react violently. These troubled souls are degraded; scorn is heaped upon them by a church that wants nothing to do with "queers," "fagots," and "nellies." We have all become very adept at heaping scorn on those we consider hopeless sinners. The scorn and smirk of Christians is one of the greatest causes of injury to those who indulge in sensuality.

"We stigmatize people with life-controlling problems. We take away their character by thinking of them as hopelessly hooked. We are so offended by their practices, we have made their sins so scandalous, we turn them into outcasts with no hope of return. We help to destroy their hunger for God by bringing down on them an avalanche of reproach and unforgiving wrath.

If you rob a sinner of his character, if you take away his dignity, if you focus only on his failures, if you treat him as a non-person, if you shut off all his roads of retreat—he is driven to hardness. He becomes calloused and begins to fight back because that is all that is left for him. It is an easy step from hardness to violence. Humiliate the sinner, take away his sense of worth, and soon you will have driven him to total remorse. If there is no God in him to support him, he will lose all hope and finally give himself over to those who will accept him. Then he often uses that hostility as an excuse to remain in his sin.

My compassion for hardened sinners has been sorely tried. I've seen gangs of leather-clad sadomasochists parading down Folsom Street in San Francisco, flaunting their perversion. They carry nail-studded belts, heavy chains, whips, and other such sadomasochist paraphernalia.
Drag queens strut around, proud, thumbing their noses at straight society. I have had countless numbers of gays call me a fanatic and a fraud. They have cursed my honest efforts to help them—they have thrown my books into the gutter, jumping on them, reviling the author with torrents of cursing.

It is then that horrible thoughts begin to surface in me. I think to myself, "God, they are hopeless. They don't want You; they don't want help. I'm wasting time. Maybe an earthquake is the only language they can understand. Why preach cure to proud people who won't even admit they need help?"

But when I go down to the Tenderloin in San Francisco and talk to those who have hit rock bottom—stoned, bombed out, at the end of their hope—something beautiful happens. Sinners tend to get honest when desperate. The truth surfaces when the games are all over. The phoney fronts, the make-believe facades, all come tumbling down. And suddenly you find just another poor, lost sinner needing the love and compassion of Christ. They weep out pitiful confessions of being kicked around, abused, used, rejected, and misunderstood.

I cannot explain the joy of seeing broken bodies and minds restored by the power of God. That is what draws some of us back time and again to the streets, willing to suffer abuse from the hardened Christ-rejectors. It may be only one out of a thousand who admits to a need or who hurts enough to want to change. But God will lead us to that one—and no power on earth or in Hell can hinder the Holy Spirit from zeroing in on that hungry heart to bring healing.

Peter the apostle said, "God has shown me that I should call no man unfit or unclean" (Acts 10:28).

Calling All Prophets! It Is Time for You To Become the Judges You Are Supposed To Be!

Calling All Prophets! 
It Is Time for You To Become the Judges You Are Supposed To Be!

Where are the prophets who are going to begin judging what prophets are prophesying?  I came under fire a little over a year ago when I questioned a prophecy by Kim Clement regarding Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church, a prophecy that appeared on and was endorsed by Elijah List.  I wrote a letter asking why our church was not addressing this; why our church was not warning people about the likes of Kenneth Copeland, James Robison, Ulf Eckman, and others who were forsaking Christianity and were substituting unity for the Truth by kissing up to the pope.
I went to a meeting last July at another church and promised myself that if the ministries in the campmeeting did not address the abominations that were being committed by the above-mentioned ministries, I would never darken the door of that church again, and they would never have my support!  Thank God, the pastor was not and is not a coward like the some of the cowards in our pulpits who are afraid to offend people with the Truth!  In fact, I thought I was fired up about what was going on, but when this pastor spoke I felt like a matchstick compared  to him!

In that meeting, the pastor warned of the danger of the overtures made to Protestants by the Pope through Bishop Tony Palmer. This so-called bishop had the gall to say that the "protest" was now over, that we could all be brothers again.  Well, within days, Bishop Tony Palmer, friend of Pope Francis I, was dead! 

Earlier, I had literally transcribed the question and answer session word for word between Bishop Tony Palmer and James Robisons' son, an interview that was filled with double-talk and lies of compromise.  The death of Tony Palmer should be a solemn warning to Christians, to prophets who are prophesying things out of their own hearts, and to false prophets.  Christians, you have a responsibility to search the Scriptures to see if what ministries are telling you lines up with the Word of God.

Don't let ANY ministry accuse you of being a Jezebel because you question what they are saying!  I questioned statements by two ministries a couple of years ago and got blasted.  Ask me if I care.  If it costs me fellowship with them, so be it.  I want to remain in fellowship with Almighty God and His Word.  As Christians, we are called to worship God in spirit AND IN TRUTH.

Unfortunately, I have seen too many charismatics and those associated with apostolic movements dumping the Truth for the latest prophetic word from some celebrity prophet or pastor.  Don't be deceived, and above all don't fail to search the Scriptures to see if what you are being told is Truth!  God will hold you accountable.  If you are too lazy to study your Bible or too scared of what man thinks of you, you better get over it in a hurry!  Judgment is coming to the House of God.

What Will You Do When the Applause Dies Down and the Fire Gets Seven Times Hotter?

What Will You Do When the Applause Dies Down and the Fire Is Turned Up Seven Times Hotter?

If the shoe fits, wear it!  If it doesn't, then you will probably know where I am coming from.  Several years ago, when our children were in school here in Okaloosa County, I had an incident which the Lord used to shake me to my foundation.  It was also used by the Lord to shape me and mold me, even though I have to admit, that at one point, I personally did not care if I ever remained a Christian or not.  Thank God, the Lord kept dealing with me and using all of these experiences to bring me into a stronger Christian experience today.
What I faced in the public school system in Okaloosa County is coming back around, and I want to give teachers, administrators,  and the superintendent - both  Christians and non-Christians - some idea of what you are going to face and what you better be willing to do this time around.
One day I was sent a letter from the school system that an invitation was being sent to the parents to view a video dealing with sex education in one of the classes.  If a parent felt that his or her child should be excluded from the presentation, then that would be allowed.  I decided to go view the film.  When I went, the principal of the school was quite surprised.  I was only one of two parents who wanted to view the film.  Nothing had been set up - no projector, no place, etc.  The school was totally unprepared for the visit.  That should tell you how unconcerned some parents are about what their children are learning!  And, by the way, Parents, you will be held accountable to almighty God!

I ended up in some hole in the wall in the library, but I did view the film.  I won't go into detail of what the film "taught."  It was not something I wanted my fourth grade student to be taught by the public school for sure.  Anyway, a short time later, the superintendent held a public meeting for PARENTS at the school where my children were attending.  During that meeting, parents were allowed to express any of their concerns about the way the school was being operated.  I was one of the parents who spoke.  I let the superintendent know that in know uncertain terms was I going to let the system teach my child sex education, especially when it came to issues that could lead to fornication or homosexuality. 

There was a big round of applause from parents who were just as concerned as I was.  BUT, when push came to shove, when the applause died down, when the fire got hotter, I found that the superintendent as well as most parents did not have the spiritual guts to stand.  The superintendent claimed to be a Christian,  but when the fire got hotter, her political career mattered more to her than her beliefs.  She did not last long as a superintendent.  But, I was no better than any of the above.  My dependency was not on the Lord.  The shaking that came caused me to throw in the towel on Christianity and just say to hell with it all.  I really didn't even care if I went to Hell - and I knew there is a Hell!

Within a few days of my speech, my principal called me to his office.  On the way to his office, the Lord spoke to me and told me not to worry about what to say. He would give me the words to speak to the principal.   The principal told me that he had heard about my speech and that if I wanted to keep my job and be hired on the following year, I had better keep my mouth shut.  What happened next shocked even me.  I couldn't believe what came out of my mouth.  I looked him straight in the eye and said, "Sir, I do not care if you take my job.  My children are more important to me than this job."

Well, he made sure that I was not rehired, and of course, when the superintendent was informed of what had happened, she did nothing.  Within a year, my whole world collapsed.  I couldn't get a job in the school system, and eventually I left the area to find work while my wife and children stayed in Baker.  I did have one woman call me and tell me that she supported what I had shared in the parents meeting with the superintendent, but she couldn't speak out because her husband's job would be in jeopardy if she did.  I thanked her for at least calling.

As I am writing this, I could almost cry.  Why?  Because when the fire got hotter, I couldn't stand.  Like Peter the apostle, I thought I could stand for the Lord.  The truth that I couldn't was something I needed to learn, especially when the trial was very long.  But, there is good news!  The Lord is going to give all of us a second chance.  The fire is getting ready to get seven times hotter. 
I have shared before that the Lord gave me a dream in which the teachers, administrators, and workers in the public school system of Okaloosa County - Christian and non-Christian - will soon be forced to sign a document endorsing the teaching of homosexuality, gender identity, bi-sexuality, etc.   This dream came BEFORE the Supreme Court ruling on homosexual marriage, otherwise known as same-sex marriage.  God is faithful to warn ahead of time.

In the dream, there were Christian and non-Christian teachers alike who refused to sign the document.  As a result, they lost their jobs, their homes, their health insurance, their retirement, and their transportation.  It was then that Christians opened their homes to these people who were willing to pay the price for the Truth.
Back in the day of my trial, even close kin told me, "You should have kept your mouth shut.  Look at all you have lost, and look what your family is suffering!"  Those kin are dead now and have gone on to their judgment.   We are still living and still have an opportunity to be like the three Hebrew children who would not bow the knee and worship the king's statue.  There are teachers, administrators, and workers in our school system who are ready to pay the price.  Let us pray that we as their fellow sufferers will not fail them in their time of need but will remember those who are suffering for their faith.

May God give us all the grace to stand in this soon-coming trial.  May we be among those Christians who not only applaud what our fellow Christians and non-Christians are standing for, but also provide for them when they are in  need.  The time for the Church to pull together is at hand.  All of our lives depend on it.  There is an evil Haman system that has invaded our land, and if we do not hang together, we will all hang alone. (See the book of Esther if you don't know what I mean!)

Little children in the Middle East and in other nations are refusing to deny their faith in Jesus Christ and are being beheaded, crucified, buried alive, imprisoned and tortured.  The same is happening with teenagers, and adults, young and old.  Are we willing to pay the price and receive the applause of Heaven, or do we instead want the applause of man?  Let us all examine ourselves to see whether we are in the faith.  He will give us the grace to stand!

God bless!
