Keeping The Lamp Standing

Don't Flirt With Sin

"Be ready for whatever comes, dressed for action and with your lamps lit (Luke 12:35 GNB).

Vision by Claudia (21/04/2020).

I had a vision from the Lord during the early hours of above date, the devil appeared and an Angel of God (Jude 1:9). They were discussing me, I heard the Angel of the Lord saying to the devil 'the Lord Jesus Christ is speaking to Claudia and she is doing well' (Job 1:8). I sensed some evil spirits moving all around the devil and he said in reply, "I don't think she can keep the lamp standing". The Angel of God looked at him and walked away. End of vision! Like Job, he attacked her by inflicting her with a condition (Glory to God she is recovering daily from this affliction). As her parent's we are praying very hard for her daily while teaching her the scriptures and we know there is no reward for turning back (Hebrews 10:38), she is equally Heaven bound to follow the Lord no matter the devil's attacks. We know the devil issues challenges and our Lord Jesus Himself was tempted as His followers we must just be ready for whatever comes (Matthew 4:1-11). The night before [20/04/2020]Claudia received this message the devil appeared to me (Brother Glenn) in a dream and he attacked me verbally and physically to cause me to fear him, but I rebuked him in Jesus name and he flee (James 4:7).

Important note: The Lord have also given Claudia a vision relating to the end things on April 24, 2020, it is also very symbolic in nature we are and have been praying for interpretation and once the Lord provides more clarification we promise to share with you. 

Now brethren, the Lord had me write this article regarding this matter for this week. The Lord says many Christians that He called and anointed to serve the body have also received gifts from the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:4-11) are falling under the weight of Satan's attacks and consequently they cannot keep the lamp standing (Matthew 5:15). Please read this entire message and after this article, I promise you would have gain much faith and truth to build your salvation on in Jesus name. What Satan has left is just fear, sin and intimidation those who belongs to Christ he has no power to harm with death.

Brethren, this is a very important message that the Lord gave us for this week it is equal in importance to all the articles we wrote here and what we are yet to write if the Lord permits (James 4:15). As a reminder, the Lord once told us that every teaching from His Word should be treated with reverence, urgency and importance (2 Timothy 3:16).

Satan To The Opportunity

It is a fact that many Christians are not ready or well equipped to withstand the devil when he strikes (1 Peter 5:8). As there are many sins (Galatians 5:19-21; Revelations 21:8) people commits and which afflicts humanity and with Satan’s presence in the world (Revelations 12:12; Luke 10:18) so much options and chances does he have at his disposal to work against us. In addition, it is true that most people including Christians are repeating some of these sins daily; and as long as some of these sins are present in our lives the devil has control over that particular area of our lives. In other words, he has an opportunity to retard our progress in Christ and stagnate our spiritual growth and (Ephesians 4:27) thus denying us of spiritual gifts and blessings (John 9:31; Matthew 6:33; Deuteronomy 28:1-14).

Furthermore, I’d like to add by saying the following; please do not ‘flirt’ with sin. What I mean by this is that we often ‘try’ things out which appears to be ‘innocent’. However, as we continue ‘as casual’ observers the devil sows a seed of desire for that particular indulgence and when we bite he provides lots of ‘support’ to lock us in and this results in a daily struggle and practice. Therefore, if you ‘flirt with sin you ‘flirt’ with the devil and he is ready to enhance your desire and appetite for the thing(s) you crave for (Genesis 3:1-6). Being a minster of the gospel, we have been privileged to hear from some people who wandered from the path of truth into the addictive trap of sin by a simple casual indulgence into some sins. This has sadly trapped countless people deeply into sin where some just don’t have the courage and faith to escape the soul obsessive pleasures.

Did God Create a Devil?

Additionally, the Bible says that Satan is a fallen angel (Luke 10:18; Ezekiel 28:12-17) and his nature is corrupted with sin and because Adam and Eve listened to him humanity became equally corrupted and adopted the sinful nature which separates us like Satan from a Holy God (Isaiah 59:2). But thanks be to God almighty for the gift of salvation through Christ our Lord for all the humanity (John 3:16).

As for the devil, someone once asked me is there no chance for the devil to repent and be saved? NO! The bible says salvation is for people and not for angels including Satan and his fallen angels (Hebrews 2:16). Why? Well, people earn salvation by confessing their sins and renouncing it and by receiving God’s gift of salvation through faith and that’s the basis of being saved (Hebrews 11:6). Does Satan need faith to be saved after having being created by God (as a guardian angel) and being in God’s Presence (Ezekiel 28:14-15)

Not at all! He can certainly not have faith which operates through hope if he has been in God’s Presence and ministered before God. Being a biblical fact which the Lord Jesus Christ revealed to me (Brother Glenn) recently (early April 2020), that Satan set himself up as God’s rival (Isaiah 14:12-15). In other words and on account of the preceding scripture, the devil’s rebelliousness against God is as such that he thought he was higher or above the God Almighty. Therefore, God did not create a devil to oppose humanity, but he chose to be one and people follow their desires either to follow the devil or God. Scripturally, God tolerates no rivals, before Him there was no God even after Him (if it was possible) there will be no other God for He is God alone (Nahum 1:2; Isaiah 43:10). In the light of this scripture, the Almighty God was not created nor formed, He exists from ancient times with no beginning of time or days (Daniel 7:9-10; Psalm 90:2; Hebrews 7:3).

The World Where Good And Evil Exists Which One You Choose

The bible says, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matthew 7:13-14 NIV). 

Now, being in rivalry with God, the devil set himself up as a god (with evil and debarred from possessing any good it is when he became a devil) and he (2 Corinthians 4:4) inherited the nature of sin and evil and all who follows him shares in that nature of sin and rebelliousness against God’s standards of morality (1 John 3:10; 1 Peter 1:16; John 8:44). He could not rival God in terms of holiness, since all things in all creation lives and exists through Him and are dependent on Him and subjected to His authority (Romans 11:36; Colossians 1:16). Therefore, the devil can only satisfy that nature and being consumed by evil and hatred for God, he attacks humanity to blind and deceive while turning people against God (2 Corinthians 4:4). Now since Satan operates as a god, on the evil side, he opposes and competes against God and he has accepted his faith as being eternally doom for destruction (Revelations 12:12; Revelations 20:20) and the nature of evil cannot exists in God’s creation (Revelation 21:4) and so God will be all and for all (1 Corinthians 15:8).

In conclusion, the choice to do sin always rests with us and to trust the Lord Jesus Christ is also a matter of choice we must decide wisely and avoid little traps those are ingredients to fall deeper into sin (Deuteronomy 30:19). In Jesus name, we beseech you brethren to keep the lamp standing and that is possible through faith, endurance, obedience, humility and prayerful devotion to God (Matthew 7:24-27). Finally our doubts, complaints, rebellion and our unbelief will never be able to change the eternal purposes of God. His plans are firm, unshaken and laid out, the devil failed and the future belongs to God Almighty and all those He called to be part of it (Proverbs 21:30; Revelations 21:5). Don’t you want to be part of God’s new beginning?

If you would like to receive God's forgiveness and be set free from the guilt of sin, and be born again please pray using this suggested prayer, our  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed Grace and Peace

Persecutions II

Persecutions spirit strikes everywhere

“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world" (John 16:33 HCSB). Also “My brothers and sisters, be very happy when you are tested in different ways” (James 1:2 GWT).

Children Going To Hell

Warning from the Lord: Yesterday morning (19/04/2020) the Lord revealed to Claudia that many parents are not leading their young children from age eight (8) and upwards to Him.  Also, the Lord commanded that Christian parents be teaching their children how to pray and to encourage them to read the Bible and if they are unable to the parent must read and teach the children the word of God (Ephesians 6:4). In a vision she was shown that how a 10 year old girl we know died and went to Hell. The Lord told her that this precious girl went to Hell because she was not born again and her name was not written in the book of life.

Smoking Christians

Again on 17/04/2020, the Lord showed Claudia in a vision that smoking was harmful to people while showing her in a vision someone who smoked constantly and He also warned that those who smoke will go to Hell.

These warns are very important brethren, the Lord wants to save children and with times being as uncertain as these we don't want to our kids to be unprotected during. Also, the reason we wrote this article was to warn people of some trying times ahead and the Lord will save those who trust in Him and walk faithfully before Him daily from the day of evil (2 Peter 2:29). We must therefore just have faith and be watchful in prayer. Please READ ENTIRE ARTICLE!

Family Feuds Results In Persecutions

During the year 2013, the Lord gave us a message to write an article about ‘persecutions’ in that article we focused on the why of persecutions and some experiences we and others endured. In this article, we will focus on the sources and manifestations of persecutions and trials which are very common in our everyday walks of life. While we have attempted to individualise it broadly speaking, it is the same old spirit of persecutions that manifest itself through accusations (Revelations 12:10).

Under normal circumstances, family feuds are unavoidable. Given to the various personality theories that we were taught, we owe our individual traits to our immediate environment of upbringing and our level education. Without going into much detail on what causes us to believe and do certain things our message will concentrate on how best to manage the attacks (Micah 7:6; Matthew 10:36).

Regardless of our position in the Lord, all families experience some conflict situations and for various reasons (Luke 10:40; 12:13) and the persecutions spirit is right in our homes. A family feud can be very uncomfortable because as a family, people share the same space to access facilities and resources. When there is a conflict situation in a particular family either between father and mother or either of the parents against a son or daughter some members of the family is being affected by the tense atmosphere.

In our experiences and observations, it does not matter how close or distant a relationship is between the warring parties, an attack will always be against a person’s dignity which leaves emotional scares and such attacks are aimed at discouraging and destroying a Christian’s faith (Matthew 5:11). I must add, members of one’s family can be very destructive in their attack since it is common among family members to be disrespectful towards others because of our closeness. Often, those who attack are fellow Christians who are persecuting their fellow soldiers in Christ. The harsh tone of rebuke is demonic in itself because it does not issue from love but ill-feelings (Galatians 6:1). If a person is always fault-finding he or she is not acting from love but from the spirit of persecution and there is a strong tendency of dislike towards another person. When this happen please prays and don’t retaliate because this kind of spirit wants you to say things that could be used against you as ammunition to accuse you (Matthew 27:14).

Persecutions To Hinder God's Work And Destroy Faith

Equally, we will face this same spirit in our public life whether working environment, school or any other activity and the aim of this is to discourage and destroy Christian faith. We are actually putting it very mildly here. As seasoned Christians, we are familiar with the pain of insults, accusations, slander and the oppressiveness of persecutions in the public life. While the world embraces human rights and dignity when it comes to Christians they treat us shame fully (John 16:2). The world has no room for Christians, but ridicule, mocking and oppressive treatment. Therefore, no Christian is or will ever be immune or exempted from attacks its part of our Christian salvation (2 Timothy 3:12). Thus all these attacks come through both Christians and non-Christians under the influence of evil spirits. In the bible Tobiah, Sanballat and Geshem were strong opponents of truth and that same spirit is operating to prevent Christians from completing the work God called them to do (Nehemiah 4:1-3). Sadly, others are ‘Christians’ the religious type, who persecute other Christians when they see the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in the ministry of their fellow brethren. We need to add, false ministries that exploit and smother money out of innocent people ought to be exposed and we know such enemies of truth displays bad fruit (Matthew 7:15-20).

Satan Is Relentless 

While these attacks are varies comes without warning and intensity, brethren who are operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit are being relentless attacked and this has been seen throughout Church history (Acts 5:17-40) and this ministry (Preparing for The Kingdom Of God) whom the Lord has blessed with the gifts of ‘word of knowledge’ and the ‘word of wisdom’ (1 Corinthians 12:8) which are essentially prophetic gifts to warn the body of Christ against false brethren in the Church and to prepare for the Coming of our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Furthermore, we know that the devil himself is hard at work to inflict with sicknesses (2 Corinthians 12:7) and create temptations to discourage and destroy the work of God (John 10:10).

Finally, brethren this should not create fear in any true follower of our Lord Jesus Christ but a willingness to take up one’s cross and march on to take hold of the crown of life (Matthew 16:24; Revelations 3:11; James 1:12). Being commanded by the Lord to write this reminder and given to the times we live in, the Lord has revealed to us that there will be a wave of persecutions to test our faith and commitment in some coming months. Christians, the born-again, spirit-filled the truly Jesus Christ followers will be subjected to severe persecution. What we (Claudia and Brother Glenn) have seen, we cannot say if this will be before or after the tribulation since we were present in these visions to observe the punishment of the wicked while we were spared. We therefore urge you to be prepared and remain prayed up.

If you would like to receive God's forgiveness and be set free from the guilt of sin, and be born again please pray using this suggested prayer, our  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed Regards and Peace

No More Devil-Breaks

Waking Up From Leading A Double-Life

“And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NIV).

Claudia Update: As a family and ministry, we would like to thank everyone who prayed for us for during our time of trial. Indeed, it was a rough week we took her to hospital last week Monday, discharged Wednesday and back to hospital Friday 10 April 2020 (Easter Friday) and discharged again early Saturday morning with no improvement to her health condition or any diagnosis as they ruled out meningitis after running some tests. This then leaves only one source the devil as the Lord said, please continue to pray for her! 

Announcement: We are praying asking the Lord to if we can run our articles twice per week as we have traditionally been posting articles once a week for the last eight (8) or more years. After knowing the Lord's mind on this matter we will report back and commence work without delay.

Let me share the word the Lord gave me during the early hours of yesterday (12 April 2020) morning. In fact this word from the Lord is the reason for our message today. I had a vision from the Lord where He displayed a note to me to convey to a brother and an active minister and the following words were written there, “For My son D… You must no more take devil’s breaks, and you must obey the word of the Lord by making a financial contribution to the ministry”. what the Lord simply means is that the brother was in the habit of back-sliding and repenting thus taking a devil's break by leading a fully committed sinful life.

We have the Lord and brother’s full blessing to share his message here to encourage and warn! Now, let me give some background information. This precious brother confessed that he lived a double-life in public life or semi-Christian lifestyle. While our brother D put up a fight in prayer daily for his deliverance, the moment the devil set the trap(s) which lured him into sin he would oblige and succumb (2 Timothy 2:26; Genesis 3:6).

Finally, his breakthrough came when he went on a ten (10) day fast while praying and the Lord honored his faith and commitment by blessing him with the message above which has placed him on a path of a life-changing experience with Christ our Lord. According to our brother D, the overwhelming pleasure of the sins he enjoyed was soul penetrating and it felt he will never win the battle against it. Brethren, let me caution you in love, the Lord said while His grace is always sufficient for us not many people have the faith and strength to make a comeback (James 1:8).

Wilful Sinning Is Addictive

It’s a fact, there are many Christians who sins purposely and returns to their old ways (2 Peter 2:22). They simply love their sinful and worldly ways and the moment they hear or see that things relating to the end-times happen they draw near to the Lord albeit half-heartedly because soon their appetite to sin will consume them (Romans 6:12-13).

At best, such “Christians” are sitting on the fence they can speak up a storm in terms of the bible. As it is, these brethren does not lack faith, they lack zeal and live a lie. Their faith is as empty their actions (James 2:14) and they keep on repenting over and over for the same offence, why? I know, because they have never been delivered in the first place from the sin(s) that control them (Romans 6:12).

Deliverance From The Angle Of Disobedience

Can a person be delivered from the power of sin and make a clean break? Yes, I have been and many others including the apostles Peter, Paul and King Manasseh (Luke 5:8; 1 Timothy 1:15; 2 Chronicles 33:11-13). Brethren, the Lord is warning us, get rid of your double-mindedness and appetite for evil. What do you mean by this appetite for evil Brother Glenn? Well, let me put it this way, many Christians thinks that God should be holding a ‘grudge’ against a Christian Brother or sister who wronged and offended them in the past.

Furthermore, my dear brothers and sisters, I have news for you, with God no sin has a measure and the Lord shows no partiality when dealing with people, when we call upon Him in repentance, He will forgive no matter the offence (Jeremiah 15:19) except of course when we blasphemy the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31). Therefore, please do not have your hopes high that God will deal with a brother or sister who sinned against you if they made right with God, they will be saved and you stand the risk of losing your own salvation for being grudgingly and unforgiving (Matthew 6:15; Acts 7:59-60; Matthew 18:21-22; Luke 17:3-4). Having being rebuked personally by the Lord, I once tried complaining to God about my wife not willing to forgive but trying to get back to her through the Lord, He ended up giving me a sharp rebuke not overlooking how I acted provocatively (Genesis 3:12-19) and that happened to me twice. It means, if I overlooked her offences and corrected her I also would have received mercy. As we can see, the Lord takes no sides but metes out justice fairly. Indeed God takes no brides, respects no persons and He is a Righteous Judge (Deuteronomy 10:17).

The Coming Darkness

Like we said in our previous article (Sudden Destruction is upon us) there will be a slight relief from this pandemic and some people will return to their former ways. Do not be deceived, use this opportunity to develop the discipline God requires of us, this is a God-given grace break useful for reflection and growing closer to Him (Psalm 46:10). This pandemic has and is still causing great damage to the world economy and we know that many discerning Christians around the world knows that this will ultimately lead to a one world government, one world currency and a one world religion (Revelations 17:1-13; 13:16-17) and some of these secret sins are already taking shape. God permitting we will write fully on this matter including pre-rapture tribulation in the coming weeks.

If you would like to receive God's forgiveness and be set free from the guilt of sin, and be born again please pray using this suggested prayer, our  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed Regards

Sudden Destruction Is Upon Us

Attack From The Enemy

“While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

Urgent Prayer Request 

(Apology for the late posting of this week's article!)

Beloved brethren, we need your prayers please. This morning our dearest daughter Claudia (age 13) woke up crying bitterly. She was in great pain; her head and eyes were paining while feeling numbness in her head. We took her to the hospital (where they are currently treating her) and they suspect she might be suffering from meningitis. However, before she knew her condition the Lord spoke to her in an audible voice this morning (06/04/2020) saying, “Your family will be having a rough week ahead and the enemy is on the attack”. We can confirm dear brethren the Words of the Lord are spot-on! Please PRAY!

Please allow me to add, on January 5, 2020 when the Lord first started speaking to Claudia He told her that He was about to reveal some great truths to her while warning us to have faith, watch and pray because the enemy is out to attack us (Luke 22:31). This precious little girl is very brave and we know the Lord will be on her side to heal her and to continue revealing His messages through her to the world. We therefore count on your support and prayers dear brethren! Indeed, this has been an attack from the enemy (Satan) and as a family we just ended some days of fasting and prayers.

Things To Come

It must be added though that the economic cost of this pandemic will be felt for years to come and many people will not take heed and forget about virus as being a warning from God and will continue in their sins. The bible says, “When you see trouble coming, don't be stupid and walk right into it--be smart and hide” (Proverbs 22:3 CEV). Beloved brethren and those who follow the Lord from a distance, commit your ways to the Lord (Ephesians 2:10;  Psalm 37:5) and use this opportunity of lockdown(s) wisely to move closer to God. Mark my words, in the months to come there will be job losses, starvation crippling strikes all over. While there will be some temporary relief and it will appear as if life has returned to ‘normal’, we will enter into another disastrous phase! We will discuss this in some future articles. Please do not be deceived in thinking things will be the same or even better after the outbreak of this virus!

The Lord has decreed judgment for the world and the end-times signs (Revelations 17:1) of God will only increase in intensity (Romans 9:28; Isaiah 24:3). Now as the Lord permits we will write more on some of these things in detail. Additionally, some world leaders will come and promise that better days have arrived but be warned! No person can guarantee us the day of tomorrow only the Lord can (Matthew 6:34).

Finally, in this short article we encourage you to follow and serve the Lord Jesus Christ daily and faithfully. Please refrain from having grudges and walking in unforgiveness against others! Walk in forgiveness, love and be at peace with with others (Romans 14:19; James 3:18). Endure hardship and stop complaining (as we know the Lord is not pleased with Christians who complains bitterly), but seek encouragement from the Lord, the Holy Spirit and even from the brethren close to you. Also, Repent of your sins as often as you get an opportunity and not just when you have a quiet of prayer for the Lord will come SUDDENLY and destruction will follow (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

If you would like to receive God's forgiveness and be set free from the guilt of sin, and be born again please pray using this suggested prayer, our  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.
