Why Christians Should Fear The Lord


Fearing God Almighty

Visions you can found it here

I (Brother Glenn) received a vision from the Lord early Thursday morning (13/02/2020). In the vision, I was standing in our back yard when my attention was drawn to thick dark clouds which were gathering and breaking up into sizable chunks covering the entire sky. As I looked at the phenomena right in front of me I felt a deep fear as it turned day light into total darkness (Joel 2:2; Zephaniah 1:15). 

I then immediately ran into the house to tell my family and just before I could speak, I heard a man as if announcing on television to the whole world, "This is the end of the world as we all know it". Soon after this announcement, I went outside again and I saw many people going about their lives as if nothing is going to happen (Revelation 22:11) And the vision ended!

Brief interpretation

We believe the dark clouds that are gathering and the announcement is a warning to the world that we are in the beginning  stages of the end times. As a ministry and family, we have been attacked by some brothers for sharing visions from the Lord especially related to the end times (Jeremiah 26:8-24) but we will continue to obey the Lord. 

Vision to Claudia 14/02/2020

During the early hours of Friday, I received a vision from the Lord. A warm, pure white bright light appeared to me and took me to a city with very tall buildings in the USA. While being in this white warm cloud, I looked down a very large and big hole opened up and I saw countless people and their cars falling into this hole (Numbers 16:32), then the vision ended! 

“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell" (Matthew 10:28 NLT). And 

"Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment" (Proverbs 9:10).


We pray that the will of the Lord God be made clearer to you all, and that you be found perfect in His will. We pray that you celebrate life through Christ this new year. 

And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God (Ephesians 5:18-21 NKJV).

A simple search of the online Bible reveals that the word “fear” is used well over 100 times in reference to God. The Bible admonishes us not only to honor all people (including our leaders) and love our brothers and sisters in Christ,but to fear and honor the Lord as well (1 Peter 2:17 NKJV). Furthermore, the Word of God also teaches us that fearing God is required for one to gain wisdom (Proverbs 1:7; 9:10; 15:33; Psalm 111:10).

Initially, when we fear God, we spontaneously and submissively yield to His will in humble reverence and awe to His authority. The single best freedom humanity can enjoy for all time is Truth! Why? Because Truth sets us free (John 8:32)—no guilt, worry, fear, possessions, or fleshly desires are attached to truth. That Truth is Jesus Christ, and it is only through Him that we can have true freedom and eternal life (John 8:36; 14:6).

Naturally, when we correct our children (who have been taught in the ways of the Lord) after they have misbehaved, their response to our rebuke is often with reverence and with a sense of fear for God. As our Lord said, children are humble and more responsive to the fear of God than adults (Matthew 18:3-4). The Lord’s promise to us, as parents, is that if we bring up our children in the ways of the Lord, we would reap the benefit of them walking in the fear of God all the days of their lives (1 Samuel 1:21-28; Proverbs 22:6).

How We Lose our Fear of God

From the Bible, we learn that the fear of God is the foundation to attaining wisdom (Proverbs 1:7; 9:10; 15:33; Psalm 111:10). Alluding to this fact, the Word of God warns us to guard against and avoid “godless chatter” or “profane and idle babblings and contradictions” or “irreverent empty speeches” that the world considers to be “knowledge” or “staying informed”; these types of talks and arguments will surely dilute and deviate our faith (1 Timothy 6:20-21). In my experience, and from what I have observed, we indeed start losing our fear for God when we are drawn to other interests which direct us away from God. Some of these distractions are well explained in the Bible; for example worldliness, love of money, and addictions (1 John 2:15; James 4:4; 2 Corinthians 6:14). In addition to these, I have identified a few other influences that also contribute negatively to our relationship with God.

Desires: To us Christians, the Bible is God’s infallible Word which carries a life-changing and life-giving instruction to mankind. We read in the Bible how several people, who knew God and had a relationship with Him initially, defied His will and chose to walk contrary to His ways (2 Chronicles 24:17-19; 2 Timothy 4:10). Exercising God’s will is a choice, and defying sin brings us two victories: God’s acceptance of our obedience and freedom from guilt. Our weakness as humans is that our choices are often influenced by our desires, which come either through someone or something that our senses capture. For example, Adam and Eve gave into the devil’s temptation when Eve "saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom...."(Genesis 3:1-6). Likewise, David gave in to lust and committed adultery when he saw that “…the woman was very beautiful…” (2 Samuel 11:1-4).

Influence from others: Bad influence from others can also detract our choice for obedience (1 Corinthians 15:33). For example, two arrogant men, Azariah and Johanan, falsely accused the Prophet Jeremiah of lying, and they influenced the people to flee to Egypt, contrary to God’s warning (Jeremiah 43:1-7). Also, in the Garden of Eden, the serpent influenced Eve to sin, and in turn Eve influenced Adam (Genesis 3:6). Rehoboam, who succeeded his father Solomon as king over Israel, was influenced by the young men he had grown up with to impose greater burdens on the people. He rejected the wise counsel of the elders who had urged him to be a servant leader and serve his people with equity and kindness (1 Kings 12:1–15).

Fear of man: Many people often fall into the trap of rejecting Godly counsel in exchange for human counsel and sympathy; this is giving victory to the devil. In the Scriptures, such an attitude is best described by these words from King Saul: “I have sinned. I violated the LORD's command and your instructions. I was afraid of the men and so I gavein to them” (1 Samuel 15:24)During the time of Exodus, of the twelve men sent by Moses to spy the land of Canaan, only two (Caleb and Joshua) expressed confidence that God would help Israel conquer the land, and they urged the people not to have confidence in God and not rebel against Him, because the Lord was with them (Numbers 13:30; 14:6-9).The remaining ten spies were afraid and scared of “the giants”, so they discouraged the people and influenced them to rebel against Moses and Aaron (Numbers 13:31-33; 14:1-4, 10). The Hebrew midwives (Shiphrah and Puah) stood faithfully; they “… feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live” (Exodus 1:17). The prophet Daniel also, when he learned of the plot against him, was not afraid. Instead of giving in to fear, “he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days”(Daniel 6:10 NKJV)The Bible warns us that “fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe”(Proverbs 29:25). We should not fear man or seek to please others, but God alone (Isaiah 2:22; Isaiah 51:12; Galatians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 2:4; Colossians 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:9; 2 Timothy 1:7).Moreover, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself reiterated that we should“not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

Possessions and power: Today’s economic environment is quite enticing to many. The explosion of goods, services, and flashy new technologies in the market makes it very easy for the devil to tempt us. Consequently, material things and thirst for power can separate us from God’s will (Matthew 19:16-23; Luke 8:14). There are some wealthy and influential people in this world whose power is their possessions and they have no fear of God. In their lust and greed for more material things, they reject eternal life—the most precious of all gifts—for worldly gain and the short-lived pleasure of sin (Luke 12:13-21; Hebrews 11:25). Sadly, many people are following them.

As a fact, today’s booming worldly entertainment media, such as television, movies, the Internet, videos and social media, promote the breakdown of family relationships and have become great stumbling blocks to godly living. In personal messages to many of us, the Lord admonished and encouraged us not to fear men. Although we are commanded to respect all men (1 Peter 2:17), we must not be afraid of their opinions of us, nor should we be ashamed of our convictions and our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 5:26-32).


Are You Living for God or for Your Own Pleasures?

Not too long ago, the Lord spoke to us in a vision, saying that we are hated by many Christians because of sharing His strong messages of rebuke against sin and wicked practices in the Church (John 17:14). We love doing the Lord’s work and our fear is for the Lord God alone. The Lord’s message is a strong warning against worldliness among Christians (Matthew 13:18-22; Romans 8:7).

As a ministry, the value we attach to truthful living and holiness far exceeds the luxuries of this life. While some may boast about their [temporary] power and earthly possessions, we know they are also driven by guilt and a strong fear of death. We should not value useless things above God and allow others to sway us from the path of truth; even in caring for others we must seek to please God (Matthew 7:13-14; 13:18-23). In the Book of Acts, we read about how Ananias and his wife Sapphira lost their lives as a result of greed for money and love of worldly possessions (Acts 5:1-11); what they treasured controlled them (Matthew 6:21). Using their example as a warning, we should not exchange the fear of God for anything; be it riches, power, or fame (Matthew 16:26). Instead, we should strive to faithfully and obediently serve God and allow nothing to separate us from Him (Romans 8:38-39). Like Job, we are encouraged to be wise by fearing the Lord and shunning evil (Job 1:1; 2:3; Proverbs 14:16; Ecclesiastes 12:13).

There are many Christian leaders who encourage us to “follow your heart” and “pursue your dreams.” The question we should ask ourselves is this: how do those dreams and plans in our hearts measure up to God’s will? Are those dreams only in pursuit of worldly happiness, comfort, and “success”, without the Cross of Jesus? If so, as the Lord Jesus explained in the Parable of the Rich Fool (Luke 12:16-21), your dreams are self-serving and for your own glory, and they will only inspire those who seek praise from man! In contrast, pursuing godly dreams through the cross of Jesus, despite persecution and hatred from the world, will lead to the salvation of others, resulting in glory to Christ. The Bible teaches us that Truth through the cross comes at the cost of insults, hatred and blood (Luke 6:22; John 15:18; 2 Timothy 3:12; 1 Peter 3:16; 4:12-14; 2 Corinthians 4:8-12). Do you think any of Christ’ followers conquered the world being applauded by the masses, without insults and hatred from the world which hates the truth? (Matthew 5:11; John 15:18).

Are you struggling with sins or temptations, be they thoughts, habits, addictions, or behaviors that drive you from the fear of God? Repent and conquer them in Jesus’ name, for the power is in your possession—choice (Genesis 4:6-7) and the Lord is willing to set you free (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 8:22; 1 John 1:9; Romans 6:6-7). Is the fear of man and of persecution holding you back from fearing God, serving Him, and doing His will? The Lord Jesus can set you free if you receive Him into your heart and follow Him as your Master, Lord, and Savior (John 8:32; 36). I, therefore, urge you to “...fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods… Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:14-15 NKJV).

If you are not yet born again, please pray this Prayer of Sincere Repentance to get started. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Have a blessed New Year in God’s fear.

How God's Angels Serves Us



Visions By Claudia (These are available also in our visions section)


Vision Of a Bright Cloud

On the February 5, 2020 I had a vision just before my early morning prayers. I saw a brilliant white cloud and a very Bright Light that illuminated the entire sky. As I looked, I felt a deep penetrating peace entering me...END! (See Matthew 17:5)

Vision Of Angels Singing

Again on February 7, 2020. I had another vision, I could see  countless Angels who were dressed in dazzling white robes standing on a pure white cloud. I immediately started singing praises to the Lord and the angelic host joined in singing praises to the Lord. End! (Job 38:7; Luke 2:13-14).


Angels and Their Origin

The Bible says that God created everything in Heaven and on the earth (Genesis1:1; 2:1; John 1:1-3). In the book of Colossians 1:16, we read, “For by Him all things were created: things in Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him” (NIV). These angelic beings are eternal and they shouted with joy when God laid the foundation of the world (Luke 20:36; Job 38:1-7). Furthermore, we are told in Scripture that angels do not reproduce or given in marriage (Matthew 22:30).

Upon further study, we read that angels are wise and intelligent beings who have a keen interest in human affairs (Daniel 9:21-22; Daniel 10:14; Luke 15:10). We also read that angels are spirits (Psalm 104:4; Ephesians 3:10).


Angels and Their Dealings With Mankind

Comparatively, Angels were created before man and they are countless and of a higher order (Psalm 103:20; Isaiah 6:2-3; Luke 12:8-9; Psalm 8:5). Because of the high position that angels have as God’s servants, they are said to be, “holy ones”, “stars”, and even as “sons of God” (Job 1:6; 2:1; 5:1; Psalm 89:5,7; Revelation 9:1). In Scripture, we are warned not to worship Angels (Revelation 19:10; Colossians 2:18). As it is, we further learn that angels are serving mankind as guides, protectors, and deliverers (Genesis 24:7, 40; Exodus 14:19; Psalm 34:7; 91:11; Isaiah 63:9; Daniel 3:28).

There are various categories of angels (Genesis 3:24; Isaiah 6:2; Ezekiel 10:3; 2 Kings 6:16-17) and when God revealed angelic beings to people they have various forms. When God sends Angels as messengers to humans, they are given a form similar to that of mankind, though they are usually different; this creates a feeling of awe (Judges 13:15-20; Matthew 28:2-3; Luke 2:9; Acts 1:10).

This is very important: when people claim to have received a message from an angel, it should never proclaim a gospel other than the message of the cross, resurrection and the final judgement of God (Galatians 1:8; Revelation 14:6-7). In the New Testament, we find the angels of the Lord supporting and encouraging the disciples in the work of the gospel:
  • Two angels who looked like men and dressed in white told the disciples that Jesus would come back in the same manner that He ascended (Acts 1:11).
  • An angel directed Philip to preach to the Ethiopian Eunuch (Acts 8:26)
  • An angels appeared in a vision to give instructions to Cornelius (Acts 10:3-7,22).
  • Angels were sent to offer protection and rescue God’s servants from prison (Acts 12:7-11).
  • An angel came to Paul to strengthen him and to assure him that he would preach to Caesar and spare the lives of his fellow sailors (Acts 27:23-24).
Can People Order Angels Around?

The Lord has given us authority over Satan and demonic spirits, but He has not given us authority to order His holy angels around (Luke 10:18-20). In addition, angels report to the Father and they are His Heavenly witnesses (Job1:6; Luke 12:8-9; Revelation 4:8-11). Also, as I will explain later, Angels do submit to the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ. They do so out of reverence to the Lord, and as much as bad angels or demons hate to acknowledge their defeat at the cross, the angels of the Lord submit to Him (Colossians 1:15-20; Philippians 2:7-11).

Can Angels Heal?

I heard a testimony of someone seeing angels healing people; this testimony contradicts Scripture, however well-intentioned it may be (1 Corinthians 12:9). In the New Covenant, it’s us – the Church, and not angels, who have been commissioned to bring healing in the name of Jesus (Matthew 10:1,8). In the New Testament, Jesus alone is the focus for anyone who was healed miraculously (Acts 3:1-8, 16; Acts 4:9-10; Acts 9:32-35; Acts 28:7-9). Healing and forgiveness of sins is granted when we pray in faith in the name of the Lord and repent of our sins (James 5:14-16). The story of the Pool of Siloam falls under the Old Covenant system, and when Jesus came to that pool He provided a better solution to those who waited for the stirring of the waters (John 5:6-8). Jesus healed everyone who came to Him in faith seeking healing and deliverance (Matthew 4:23-24; Matthew 9:35-36; Matthew 14:14).

In the New Testament, we do not see any evidence of angels performing healing, and as a matter of fact, we are warned about a wrong emphasis on angels:
  • False angels can bring deception via a different gospel other than what is written in the Bible (Galatians 1:8).
  • Satan and his demons can masquerade as "angels of light", and his servants also masquerade as “servants of righteousness” (2 Corinthians 11:14).
  • Deceived and misguided people worship angels and deceive people with their emphasis on supernatural experiences that are rooted in their fleshly pride, and not in the Holy Spirit or Scriptures (Colossians 2:18).
Encounters With Angels

I will relate two short experiences we had with angels. In 2009, I was shown a vision of angels in human form who were clothed in white guarding my two daughters. In this vision, I saw my daughters Charis and Claudia playing, and I saw two white figures standing close by watching them. I immediately reacted and shouted, “I rebuke you in Jesus name” and as I did that I saw the angels fleeing and they stood a short distance from us (Colossians 1:15-20; Philippians 2:7-11). I continued rebuking them while they just looked at me, and a thought come to my mind that “those are your daughters” guardian angels”. When this thought appeared I wanted to inquire of them but they disappeared.

Furthermore, and I have never reported on this, Charis had numerous visits from different angels who declared upon their appearances that they were sent by the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I will only relate on one experience here since it may appeal to everyone. The other angelic visions were personal messages to some of us from the Lord. The vision and the message I am about to share should not be construed as a possible rapture date setting. The female angel who brought the message did not give us the meaning of this message. This particular angel has been sent twice to Charis as a messenger of the Lord (Acts 10:3-8). The vision is described below.

The Vision of the Number 3

This is the vision the Lord gave me (Charis) in the morning of February 28, 2013. I saw an angel appearing in the form of a woman. Although, she did not give me her name, I knew her name was Celeste and that she was an angel sent by the Lord. She spoke and said, “Did you notice that the Lord used the number 3 various times, like your family had to go on a fast for 3 days, and the Lord used the number 3 in the vision you had about your mother? The Lord also used the number 3 in David’s punishment and the Lord rose from the dead in 3 days’ time? I asked her, why are you telling me all these? She replied, “I am sent to tell you this and don’t forget my words; please remember my words”. I replied saying “Yes, I will not forget”, and she disappeared.

Kindly allow me to add some background to this vision. In the beginning of the Lord Jesus Christ’s visits to us, He commanded us to fast for 3 days to receive a blessing, breakthrough and to establish this ministry. Soon after our fasting, He announced what we fasted for. This was predicted and it all came true. Also, the Lord showed Charis a vision of something my wife was going to do; this prediction came true and the rest we know it from the Scriptures. We have no direct interpretation to this revelation but we share it with you as a warning and encouragement.

In conclusion, the Lord also told us that angels do not dispense the gifts of the Holy Spirit, nor do they administer the gifts of the Holy Spirit on His behalf; it is the Lord Himself who works through the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:17-18). There is order in the work of God and each individual angel has been assigned task by God (Jude 6; Revelation 5:1; 2 Kings 19:35; Revelation 20:1-3).

Let us therefore remember that Scripturally, we are warned against worshiping angels, praying to them or expecting them to do things for us; they are only ministering spirits sent by God and they are commanded by Him and our Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:14).

Blessed Grace and Mercy be multiplied to you in Jesus name,

Brother Glenn.

PS: We are sharing a new warning vision the Lord has given on November 9, 2013.

Is rapture imminent?

Is rapture imminent?

Important Notice: This week's article has been written by our beloved Brother Thomas John who is doing a good job in the mission field for the Lord in Bangladesh and some other areas. This precious brother and his team are fearless and selfless warriors of the Cross who preach the gospel in areas where their lives are in constant danger. We therefore urge you brethren to pray for them in Jesus name. As a ministry, we have been warned by the Lord not to set dates relating to His coming. Therefore the dates suggested below may or may not be accurate and these are not endorsed by this ministry.

Vision of a selfish Christian (02/02/2020). 

I (Brother Glenn) had a vision from the Lord on above date. I had a conversation with a known pastor in our area and the Lord showed me that this man had sin in his life which he did not even hide from others. While this and I were conversing, i heard the Lord saying, "This man will do nothing for others unless he stands to benefits from it". End! (Colossians 3:23-24).

We therefore encourage you brethren, let us not do good to others for self-gain, or self-glorification but as humble servants doing it to please our Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 17:10; Matthew 25:40).

I have no doubt that we are living in the last days foretold in the scriptures thousands of years ago. I am very excited to be living at this crucial period in history. I believe the next great event in human history is going to be the rapture of the church. The vast majority of the unbelieving world will be caught unawares when this event will finally occur. However for the small band of true believers in Christ, it is going to be a day like no other.

At no time in history have we seen prophetic puzzles falling into place at such a speed. It is all happening right in front of our eyes. This is the most significant period in world history as the prophetic time clock is ticking faster than ever before. So many things are falling into place. So much is converging so fast! And yet many don’t pay attention. The sad truth is there are so many Christians today who have no idea how close they are to this great event. Unfortunately many of them aren’t studying the word and are not interested in the Lord’s return. A good number of Christians don’t even believe the rapture is ever going to occur. It has become just like the days of Noah. There is so much of unbelief and belligerence. In most churches there is no serious preaching on the Lord’s return. Sadly so many in our churches are not rapture ready!

Is it possible to know?

Jesus had clearly stated in Matthew 24:36 that no one knows the day or hour of his coming. Does it mean that we will be totally in the dark regarding Christ’s return for his church? What Christ said was that no one knows the ‘exact time’. That doesn’t mean we cannot know the ‘general time’ of rapture. The overall timing might remain a mystery. However we may be able to observe some general indicators when key prophecies are fulfilled.

The same Jesus who said that no man knows the day or the hour of his coming, however, was very angry with the Pharisees and Scribes for not discerning “the signs of the times" (Matthew 16:3) and not knowing the "time of their visitation" (Luke 19:44).

Jesus did go into detail about the end times in Matthew 24 and Luke 21. When the disciples

asked what would be the signs of the end of the age, he explained in-depth. The whole chapter is devoted to us knowing what the times would be like and what are the things to come. If He did not want us to know what to look for, He would have told the disciples that they

do not need to know. It is in fact the complete opposite. We can know the general time of his coming by discerning the signs of the end time. The Bible talks about signs that point to the rapture. It is our ignorance of these signs that deter us from knowing the truth and becoming rapture ready.

Major signs

In Matthew 24 we find the disciples asking Jesus a very profound question, “When this will happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” and this is what Jesus told them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:7-14).

Nations today are armed with nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons. Many are at war with each other. The situation is chaotic in many places around the world. The Middle East is more combustible than ever. We are almost on the verge of a third world war. It has never been like this. Our world is at a tipping point.

Persecution of Christians is on the rise around the world. Today Christians in many nations are targeted, hunted down and ruthlessly murdered. According to one estimate, a Christian is martyred every five minutes. The unprecedented rise in persecution of Christians across the world is a sure sign that we are drawing closer to tribulation and subsequent events.

We are seeing an increase in the frequency and intensity of earthquakes all over the world. Jesus in his Olivet discourse predicted that this would be a major sign just prior to his return to earth.

It must also be borne in mind that our Lord Jesus knew that the global media would cover most of the events He mentioned in Matthew 24:7 and the new diseases being reported around the world are signs we need to take note of.

The increase of sin is another major sign. The moral degeneration that we witness today in the world is unprecedented. Morality is overwhelmed by shameless behavior. It was Ruth Graham, the late wife of Billy Graham who once said, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” It isn’t just America but the entire world is witnessing a rapid degradation of morality. Evil is rising around the world.

Today there may be only few people in the world who haven’t heard the name Jesus. It is true that many Islamic nations do not allow religious freedom. In some countries people risk the death penalty for changing religion. But the Internet and some social media platforms is changing everything. It is much harder for governments to control. The gospel message is going out to the world. Unreached people group doesn’t necessarily mean that a particular group hasn’t heard about Jesus or Christianity at all. Gospel has reached almost every place in the world.

The Coming Of The LORD

Will The Lord Come Anytime Soon? 

“Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!” (Psalm 27:14 NKJV). Also, “Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20 NKJV). Naturally, the hardest thing for people to overcome is our inability to be patient and wait (Exodus 32:1; 1 Samuel 13:11-12).

Vision From Claudia: I received a Vision from the Lord on the 24/01/2020. I saw myself being at school with many other learners around me enjoying lunch break. Suddenly, I heard a very LOUD ear deafening Thunder as if it was a warning. I saw all the unsaved people everywhere  screaming and running and as they were running the earth opened underneath them and they would fall while screaming and being terrified into the deep dark holes (Numbers 26:10). While the vision was being shown to me the Lord urged me to record what I saw saying "this is a message for all to be ready". End!

Brethren, let us rejoice in patience as we are waiting for our redemption. As a family, we believe the Lord Jesus Christ is Coming in our life-time! Again, as the Lord provides these visions and messages we will share in love in Jesus name with the hope to encourage and get many ready for the Lord's soon coming.

Important Observation! It is a fact, some Christians are just tired of waiting for the coming of the Lord so they imagine rapture dates and sadly some brethren are led into believing these false rapture dates. We are repeating the Lord is coming like a thief (Revelations 16:15; 1 Thessalonians 5:2) and we HEARD FIRST HAND FROM THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF THAT HE WILL PUNISH THOSE WHO SET DATES BECAUSE IT DESTROYS THE FAITH OF MANY. Please read this WARNING

The Consequences of Bad Choices 

From the latter Scriptures above, we read how the people involved acted impulsively, fearfully and out of uncertainty which led them to sin and suffer terrible consequences in the process for their impetuous efforts. If they waited humbly and with patience they would have inherited great blessings which would have change the course of their destiny and for the greater benefit of their descendants (1 Samuel 13:13-14; Exodus 32:33-35).

Humanly, it is often tempting to disregard the Lord’s warnings and commands and substitute it with what we think is best and from the experience of Saul and the children of Israel the end result did not favour their well-being. The point we are making here is, if we overstep God’s authority and follow our own counsel, we will reap the consequences of our impatient choices. We must bear in mind though, that the consequences of disobedience are irreversible (Numbers 20:12; 2 Samuel 12:11-12).

Many would argue and say, “but I asked the Lord to forgive me”, good! So did David (Psalm 51) but he suffered the consequences (see 2 Samuel 15 to 20). We may also put it this way, the Lord will willingly forgive us but we will have accept the consequences of our wrong actions. As an example, the apostle Paul repented of his sins but the consequences of his previous convictions followed him (Acts 9:15-25).

Too often, some Christians are blinded by their own mistakes and by avoiding to accept the consequences, they start complaining bitterly and are just about ready to give up on their faith. My work in the ministry has helped me observe why some people complain, suffer and backslide. Upon a closer examination of their past habits and some of their choices, we have been able to see exactly why they are in the mess they found themselves in. When we engage with them, we ask questions and our exercise of asking relevant questions is simply to determine how the person arrived at the problem they are facing, and to help them identify the mistake that led to the problem, which should lead them to repent, and apply the Word of correction leading them receive deliverance with peace of mind (James 4:1-3).

Finding Peace through Christ and Nowhere Else

Apart from material possessions, no Christian or non-Christian can claim to have a perfect and trouble free life, never in this world! We are all somewhat ever engaged in finding some kind of solution(s) for the problems we face. As we scout for solutions we see that some people from all walks of life choose either of the following:
  • Being a Christian will naturally lead us in prayer to God for whatever help we need, and like I indicated above, did we identify our own mistakes that led us to the problem and are we genuinely repentant? (2 Samuel 12:13; Luke 15:18-20) and if so, are we willing to accept the consequences of our actions (1 Chronicles 21:17) and allow God to carve out a new journey based on a humble and an improved relationship with Him (Luke 15:20-24).
  • Sadly but true, non-Christians often overlook the consequences of sin being the cause of their problems and they consequently live with the problem. Being without peace as a reward for knowing Christ (John 14:27), they substitute it by employing other sins of pleasure like alcohol, drugs, and engaging in lustful entertainment. This ends in a vicious and repetitive cycle until the person realises his or her conscience state and seeks and finds rest in the Saviour from sin and destruction (Matthew 11:28).
  • With the advent of many technological advancements, people look for solutions in science, while this provides possible solutions it is limited and over dependence on science leads us away from God thus contradicting the nature and order of things in creation (Romans 1:25; Psalm 104:27; 145:15).
  • Others, in a desperate attempt to eradicate the afflictions of the day, skilfully examines the past for possible answers and if they can’t find remedy they long for the past (Numbers 14:4; Isaiah 43:18). Brethren, our past footsteps have been erased and despite the good we enjoyed then, we have a future in Christ to look to “…which was established upon better promises” (Hebrews 8:7 KJV). As a reminder, God has set our journey through life to happen once (Hebrews 9:27), and we come across the various intersections (life’s experiences) once and these should better equip us to make the right decisions every time. If we fail, God is willing to pick us up (1 John 1:9) and put us on a new path (2 Corinthians 5:17) warning us never to take the journey back (Deuteronomy 17:16).
Before concluding, brethren we should ask ourselves a question; has our uncertainties and doubts driven us to examine various opinions and so-called prophecies which affected our walk with the Lord? Are you tired of waiting on the Lord’s coming so you took matters in your hands risking your salvation and engaged in worldly pleasures? (Matthew 24:46-50). Has the problems in life defeated you that you see no solution? Repent, work on your new life in Christ and waiting on the Lord will produce a fruitful service (Philippians 1:22).

Finally, we should remember for our Heaven journey, we are encouraged to endure (Matthew 24:13) while we patiently awaits for our redemption. The word of God says, “For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him” (Hebrews 10:36-38).

If you would like to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and escape the snares of death, please get started by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, you may please contact us.

Blessed regards in patient endurance,

The Peaceful Presence Of God


Humility With Servant Attitude Moves God

“Your dwelling place is lovely, O Lord of Armies! My soul longs and yearns for the Lord’s courtyards. My whole body shouts for joy to the living God. Even sparrows find a home, and swallows find a nest for themselves. There they hatch their young near your altars, O Lord of Armies, my king and my God. Blessed are those who live in your house. They are always praising you” (Psalm 84:1-4 GWT).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We will be sharing Visions and messages From The Lord To Claudia as He directs (Brother Glenn and Sister Desiree's 13 year old daughter). These will be updated on our VISIONS PAGE. As a family and ministry, we know that these messages and warnings from the Lord are not just for us but for the whole world and in obedience to Him we will make it available on this website. 

Brethren, please bear with us just a little on this matter, some time ago a few brethren mocked us regarding the Lord's coming thinking that we made up these and other warnings the Lord gave us. We are confident that the Lord's words will be fulfilled we will therefore not be deterred by the slander and accusations of doubtful people but we will share the Lord's visions and messages (1 Corinthians 9:16).

Now on 5 January, 2020 the Lord Jesus appeared to Claudia after her early morning prayers just after she went back to bed. The Lord showed her in a vision where she was alone in a forest surrounded by beautiful trees and the Lord said to her, "I WILL SHOW YOU SOMETHING, BUT YOU MUST HAVE FAITH" (Hebrews 11:6). 

WARNING TO LUKEWARM AND UNFAITHFUL CHRISTIANS!

During the time we were waiting to hear from the Lord again, we prayed and she also prayed earnestly crying to the Lord and after about 2 weeks, the Lord kept His good promise and appeared again to her during the morning hours of 18 January, 2020,where she again found herself in the forest alone The Lord showed her how a father and his daughter were running from a raging fire, and she heard the thunderous voice of the Lord saying, "I AM COMING SOON AND YOU SHOULD WRITE DOWN MY WORDS! End of vision.

As for our message today, Sometime ago, the Lord Jesus Christ commanded my wife and I to recruit people we know to be Christians to form a prayer and fellowship group. At first when the people realized it was the Lord Himself speaking there was a great excitement and the prayer attendance was one hundred percent. In fact, the excitement was almost similar like the one the believers experienced in Acts (Acts 4:32-35).

From our experience we can identify with the brethren in the bible book of Acts, the reassure of the LOVE of Christ and hearing from Himself truly translates into a feeling greater than anything on earth. The richness and purity coming from ones heart and soul is so refreshing and such radiance from within is evident from the outside (Exodus 34:29-35). To my best depiction of this feeling of reassurance of the Lord’s love, it feels like one can give him or herself away to others to help them and dissolve their problems away. In addition, in my experience such LOVE from the Lord is so all encompassing and consuming that the sense of thinking of oneself simply disappears (Acts 4:32; Philippians 2:6-11).

Furthermore, as the Lord spoke to us and often referring us to the Bible to confirm His Words, our love and appreciation for the scriptures deepened that gave us an unshakable and unquestionable faith that shook off all arrows of doubts and unbelief (Ephesians 6:16). Like Peter, the excitement of knowing it is the Lord approaching lifts our faith to an unimaginable level where everything just seems impossible and within reach (Matthew 14:28). Beloved brethren, this is a real testimony and we shared this testimony on this platform on how the Lord brought back our baby daughter Cailin to life after she died and having discoloured with rigor mortis already settled in. After praying and rebuking the spirit of death in Jesus name, the Lord revived our daughter. You may read that testimony under this heading Patience: An Essential Fruit to Inherit God's Promises and if you don’t find it please email us to forward it to you.

The Sorrows Of Life

Coming back to the believers we recruited, each one had their own needs and we all desired the Lord to have a look at our problems. The Lord knowing our hearts and the strength of our faith, commanded us just to continue praying for our needs. As it was, some expected the Lord to first provide the needs but God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34) He wanted us to pray and those who obeyed and persevered were blessed while those who walked away failed to hear or received from God (Colossians 4:2-6).

God Before Everything Equals His Purpose

However, soon after the Lord challenged the believers who joined our fellowship to go out witnessing and serving Him with sincerity of heart (James 2:17) some who appeared very sincere and promising in the beginning started giving excuses and staying away from the fellowship. What we can say is that in general, some people value their needs higher than God and not only are we need driven the sorrows of life invites the spirit of doubt which shakes and shatters our faith and that is exactly how some of the brethren viewed their relationship with God, needs first and God second! Typical of human nature, which loudly expresses itself in ‘serve me first before I give and serve’, but with God it is “But first, be concerned about his kingdom and what has his approval. Then all these things will be provided for you” (Matthew 6:33 GWT). In the very beginning of God’s relationship with people, He commanded “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind. And love your neighbor as you love yourself” (Luke 10:27 GWT).

Thus, this is a Kingdom principle, we need God first and needs will be provided for (Matthew 6:33). Personally, my soul always longs for God’s purity and His Presence I experienced and it surpasses life and that is a Space no one wants to trade or leave (John 6:68; Genesis 32:24-30). Now brethren, we are not lying to you when we say we have heard from the Lord Jesus Christ and many of you can experience Him too on a personal level and only three things are required believe in Him, accept Him as Lord and Saviour and obey Him (John 14:12; Matthew 7:24-25).

In conclusion, if you ever desired to be someone else because your circumstances dictated that, accept your position in life even from there God is calling you or have called you to share in His Glory (1 Corinthians 7:20; Romans 8:17; 1 Peter 4:13). As for those of us who received the grace of experiencing God only had a ‘brief treat of His Living and soul Penetrating Presence’ and this is a longing and desire that will always strife with us. Not so easy though! We still have the flesh to overcome and everything the devil throws at us to deny us entry so the Lord commanded us to persevere and only that way will we gain access into His inviting and beautifully alluring Presence. Do you want to GO THERE...Heaven where His Presence Dwell?

Well, we would like to extend an invitation to anyone who does not know the Lord Jesus Christ yet, or of you are not born again, to pray our suggested prayer on this link Prayer of Sincere Repentance by faith and follow the Lord (Matthew 4:19). You may also contact us for any questions or comments about this article or our ministry.
Bless you all

Loving God With All Your Heart

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. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40).

Short vision by Charis, (12/01/2020) Please read it here or read it right below!

Vision Of 7 Babies (12/01/2020)
Given to Charis

I had a vision from the Lord just before I got up on above date. In the vision, I saw that I had seven (7) babies on my lap and I picked up two (2) babies and held them up. While doing that I discovered that those two (2) babies died and I felt very sad and I heard the Lord saying, "Don't be sad for what you have lost, but be grateful for what you still have". 

Brief interpretation:

While it is human nature to lament the things we lost, the Lord is not pleased when we make a show of it and acting as if we lost everything. Therefore, when we have lost loved ones, earthly possessions or even some of our body parts due to injuries or sickness the Lord implores us to take courage in Him (1 Samuel 30:6) because only He is our TRUE TREASURE (Matthew 13:44). We strongly encourage you dear brethren to read the associated scriptures in the interpretation to this vision!

Our article for this week is a very brief encouragement. Brethren, before you say, "I have heard and read this before; I don't need not go through this again", let me assure you that you most definitely need this message! The Lord called us into humble obedience with a childlike attitude (Matthew 18:3). Also, the apostle Paul reiterated that a repetitive message is for our benefit, because the more exposure we have to the word of God, the better our chances of being fruitful and denying the devil an opportunity to influence us (Philippians 3:1). Therefore, constant reminder and exposure to the word of God increases God’s Presence upon us, resulting in peace and unity with Him (Galatians 5:16-17; John 6:63). The Lord Jesus Christ recently revealed to me that many Christians are doing their best to be accepted by others, but not by Him. Truth is, it is easy to make ourselves attractive to people because the benefits we reap are immediate, while the benefits of our faith are unseen; however, they are just as real (Hebrews 11:1).

How to Love God

It is fairly easy to say that we love the Lord with all our being. However, God Himself tests our love for Him (Genesis 22:1-19). Admittedly, tests from God are never easy because our whole being is involved -- mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically (Job 19:13-27) and such tests will result in either making us become more determined to trust God or causing us to give up all together (or relegating into lukewarm mode) (Matthew 10:22). Not too long ago, the Lord told me in a vision that a lukewarm Christian bears no fruit as they are not actively exercising their faith. Instead, He said, their focus is on avoiding trouble and building up their own solutions through worldly wealth and friendship with worldly people whom they are afraid to correct and witness to (John 15:18-19). As you may have experienced, having bad company corrupts good character and opens the door to deception (1 Corinthians 15:33).

Furthermore, Daniel the prophet was focused on his relationship and obedience to God more than having time to befriend people who had no interest or love for God. Therefore, as a result of his love towards God, he accepted unjust suffering and the God he loved expressed His own love for Daniel (Daniel 10:11, 19), and He rescued Daniel (Daniel 6:3-24). You may be assured that Daniel worked harder and with honesty. His dedication to his work exposed the laziness and dishonesty of the other supervisors, so they devised a plan to oust him (Daniel 6:3-6 NKJV) and their goal was to destroy his Source of joy and peace. They tried to put asunder Daniel’s love for God, and in their deadly attack, they found out that he was courageous to choose death and that his love for God was inseparable. His friends were also found to possess a similar spirit of commitment (Daniel 3:13-27), as were the seven thousand (7000) men who did not bow to Baal, but held onto their love for God (1 Kings 19:18).

While most of us live in cultures where human rights are widely protected and respected, it is unlikely that we would face similar circumstances and challenges like some folks in the Old Testament, unless we live in counties that hate Christ and where Christians are persecuted (John 15:18;Matthew 25:45). We must acknowledge though, that it is the same old devil who worked in people then that is at work even today. In our day, he simply applies new sophisticated weaponry -- the tongue accompanied by blatant insults, lies and slanderous accusations piercing the souls of believers with heavy blows of doubt and faith decay, resulting in backsliding and lukewarm Christians. Today, many Christians are afraid to witness because they would be accused of imposing their faith onto others and for trying to make people meet "our" expectations. This is not really true; we merely express our faith and love to God and for them by encouraging and warning them of pending judgement (John 14:23; Matthew 28:19). We must remember that the gospel message is essentially to save sinful man from God’s coming judgment (Romans 2:3-5).

God’s Encouraging Love

Brethren, as a saved sinner myself, when I accepted the love of God by faith through the born-again experience, I literally experienced His abiding and enduring love and every day I find it invigorating (Lamentations 3:23). When we become Christians, we are taught the basics of the gospel, like how we ought to live and to trust God for our needs; this is is good and acceptable. However, as tests and trials are set before Christians, not only will our faith, patience and endurance be tested, but our love for God too (Deuteronomy 13:3). As a believer who has been around and witnessed the Lord’s faithfulness through Him answering my prayers, I have learned that as we love and honour Him through our suffering because of our love for Him (1 Peter 4:16), He never abandons His faithfulness and love for us (2 Timothy 2:13). Instead, He suffers with us, feeling our pain (Hebrews 2:18; 4:15) while allowing us to display our full love for Him through our unwavering commitment.

In a beautiful and encouraging message to Charis recently (April 22, 2015), the Lord gave us an assurance that He has seen the heavy laden Satan placed on us and that He will lift it. We are undeserving of such great love and mercy from our Heavenly Father. He is returning in great abundance His true love to us by letting us know that NOTHING can separate us from His love (Romans 8:31-39).

In my final encouragement to you, dear brethren, it pleases the Lord more when we are showing love and honour to Him more than just what we need from Him and in return through His blessings He confirms His love (Matthew 6:33). This is surely not an article to discourage you from asking the Lord to help you through your struggles! He wants to display His love to us by giving what we need, but we should show our love to Him through our commitment, like Jeremiah, Daniel and many other great warriors of our faith did.

In conclusion, we say that besides the foundation of our faith being Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11) and the heavy weapons to sustain our faith and salvation (Ephesians 6:10-18), we are not complete if we have no love for God and others as our opening Scripture commands (Matthew 22:39). As a final encouragement, remember the Lord told us that His Word and teaching carries equal weighting. In other words, God does not favour certain people, churches and denominations above others, nor does He favour one portion of Scripture above the other Scriptures. God has no partiality (Romans 2:11; Deuteronomy 10:17); all His Word is final and complete for our salvation. Those who lay a short-sighted view and emphasis on some doctrinal position on certain matters of faith are guilty of dishonouring the Lord and His Word. This position shows no love to God, is only for our own interest.

Have you been failing to love and obey God through tests and trials (John 14:15)? Have you been neglecting to exercise your faith by loving others as yourself and therefore finding yourself slipping into lukewarmness? If so, please repent and choose to stay strong and steadfast in the Lord (Mark 13:13). To receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance.

How To Overcome The spirit Of disobedience

The spirit Of Disobedience

…”in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient” (Ephesians 2:2).

Sometime ago, the Lord gave us a message and He said, “No children are allowed in tonight’s worship session and John (Not real name, and being 11 years at the time) must be present so that he can receive deliverance from his demons”.

Now, when John was about nine (9) years old, we led him to the Lord and at first, like all new babes in Christ (1 Peter 2:2) he walked obediently and the Lord rewarded him for that. As a family, we could sense the Lord’s Joy when people acted obediently and He always expressed such Joy through His messages to people and often His Joy would be accompanied by a blessing that brought the Lord great pleasure. We hasten to add, that little John was equally grateful to the Lord for his blessings and the Lord’s attention and love for him. As we knew, this was aimed at encouraging John to lead an obedient lifestyle (John 15:2).

Ungodly Interest, The Cause Of Our Fall

Being human, and since John enlarged his friendship circle, his interest in other things increased and subsequently his commitment to the Lord took a downward spiral. As it was, the ‘tools’ like daily bible reading he needed to build his spiritual live became a burden to him. He despised bible reading, prayer and his Christian manners (Ephesians 6:1; 1 Peter 2:2; Jude 1:20) and the result of his dissociation with the Lord was manifestly evident and his tongue twisted from being heartily truthful (Psalm 15:2; Ephesians 4:15) to being deceitful in his speech. It must be added, not only was his speech crooked, but his behaviour and the very content of his heart (Proverbs 4:23; Matthew 15:19).

Furthermore, those of us reading here can bear witness that as we slowed down in our commitment to the Lord so does our spiritual fruit which withers. A brother in the Lord once confided in me that being a Christian and in ministry, he came across many Christian brethren who were heartedly backslidden, but orally armed with the usual Christian jargon, and they can talk up a good salvation message while their hearts and interest are elsewhere. By this, I am being reminded by a conversation I had with a young man a few years ago, he agreed with me on our need for salvation and he even expressed great admiration for his father’s faith in the Lord, while he had his eyes on worldly things. This was confirmed by the Lord when He gave the young man a message saying that his mind was in the world, like our lead scripture, this is where disobedience resides (Ephesians 2:2).

Work Status To Promote Self

Often, Christians finds it difficult to balance their lives between being a committed Christian and a career. Like we acknowledged in our Laziness article, work is necessary (2 Thessalonians 3:10) but our work must NOT be priority over our relationship with God (Daniel 6:3-4). From the preceding verse, the Prophet Daniel was a diligent and hardworking man, however, he did not allow the love for his job to compromise his relationship with God. Neither was he hungry for power and admiration since the King planned to promote him (Daniel 6:3), he exercised his duties faithful and in the fear of God (Colossians 3:23) and not to display his ‘glory’ as some are in the habit of showing off their power positions to control and draw others to their status. It is common knowledge today that people regard their high social standing due to their influential positions as their 'glory' and trademark to gain power over others, their work is not of being a servant, but to be adored. What we know scripturally, is that the spirit of service at work in the Prophet Daniel was humility, and that same spirit was found in Joseph as well (Genesis 39:8), even as epitomised by our Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:5-11).

The Influence Of The Strong Man In Us

Let me frankly put it this way, there is a STRONGMAN in each one of us (Mark 3:27), and the Apostle Paul it the ‘spirit of disobedience. No doubt, this being does not fear God, neither does it want to submit to Him. It is only at the command and obedience to God’s Word that we overcome this being which controls and directs our will to disobey the Lord (Romans 7:15-20). In other words, our victory in leading a sinless life would be that we subject ourselves to unquestionable submission to the Lord which is essentially an expression of humility (Romans 6:13; 12:1-2). It can therefore be said, that if we are moved by such humility no STRONGMAN would have a hold in some area of our lives. You heard correctly! The STRONGMAN possesses certain areas of our lives which influences our relationship with the Lord and with others (1 John 3:10; Acts 10:13; John 8:44). Like we have learned from John, a lying tongue has a touch of Satan to it and so does anger, fighting, swearing, screaming, stealing, gossip and pride (John 10:10; Galatians 5:19-21). Thus, all these vices are indicative of the STRONGMAN’S influence if we manifest any of these or any other act that is contrary to God’s will. Also, you will probably remember that we shared in some previous articles that the Lord rebuked a brother in our ministry and attributing his spirit of anger to Satan’s influence and possession (Matthew 16:23). Therefore, words and status will NEVER be able to substitute humility, for the spirit of humility issues from the heart in obedience to the Lord (Matthew 12:35; Galatians 5:22-23).

In Conclusion, if you are serious in conquering the STRONGMAN and possessing the spirit of humility, you need to repent and train your spirit daily through submissive obedience to the Lord and practice love for others, this will undoubtedly rid you of ‘self-status’ and leads you to God consciousness (Psalm 139:17-18).

We would like to extend an invitation to anyone who does not know the Lord Jesus Christ yet, or of you are not born again yet, please pray our suggested prayer on this link Prayer of Sincere Repentance by faith and follow the Lord (Matthew 4:19). You may also contact us for any questions or comments about this article or our ministry.
