Being Committed To Your Call Of Being Christian

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20 NIV).

Before we proceed with this week's article, we would like to share the vision below, the Rapture train will soon take off...

The vision of the Rapture train READY for departure

Given to Charis on August 25, 2015

"I had a short rapture vision this morning. I saw myself with members of my family at a beautifully neat, tidy, and organized train station. There were countless people waiting in a long queue ready to purchase train tickets. I heard the voice of a young lady (I knew it was an angel of the Lord) announcing that there was room for only 5 more people on the train. The ticket attendant seemed to know the people whom the 5 seats were reserved for. I heard some people begging for a seat, particularly one lady who stood close by me. I saw some people trying to force their way through, but they could not succeed; the ticket attendant and the security personnel knew of all the plans these people were trying to make in order to get into the train." This was the end of the vision.

Brief interpretation

In this simple vision, the Lord is telling us that the rapture train is READY for departure and that there is room only for the 5 wise virgins (Matthew 25:7-13). The 5 signifies those who are ready and who will have their seats reserved. Those who are not ready will moan and beg to get on board to no avail. The Lord is pleading with you, BE READY! The Rapture train is already on the station ready for departure, REPENT and get right with God, booking your ticket to Heaven today!

A Commitment by Choice and Intent

True Christianity encourages a faith-based relationship with the Lord (1 Kings 8:61). As most of us would agree, in order to succeed, a relationship requires mutual respect and genuine love for the other person. Innately, no one wants to be taken advantage of in any given relationship, whether in marriage, business, or other friendly relationships. In other words, we all expect the other party to fulfill their obligations and promises in order for the relationship to be sustained. Even in temporary relationships, such as business contracts or political agreements, failure by either party in the relationship to honor obligations often results in the termination of the relationship.

In our message today, our focus relates to the choice we made to have a relationship with the Lord, when we said to Him: “Here I am, I have come to do your will” (Hebrews 10:9 NIV). When we commit to the Lord, our choice should never be based on "trying out" Christianity because the previous experience we had with religion could not help us find meaning or fulfillment in life. If we come to Christ with such an attitude or motive, we would not be happy, and sooner or later we would leave and try out another experience. This is typical of some people who have abandoned their faith in the Lord and joined other religions. This might seem right, but I doubt the initial choice was based on a true conviction and need for repentance. In an experience related to me recently, a brother told me that he responded to the call of the Lord out of a deep conviction fueled by a willingness to be freed from his old way of life.

Briefly, I heard someone very sincere and faithful in the Lord say to me: "Brother, before I exercised my choice of accepting the Lord to rule my life, I had the opportunity of reading the entire New Testament Bible, familiarizing myself with the various requirements, rewards, and punishments. After satisfying myself with the content of the new life through the New Testament and comparing the direction and experiences of my old life, and after many days of inner conflict, I surrendered to the Lord. Therefore, my choice was informed and I had to embrace all good and bad things lined up for me in this path and this served as a revelation to my faith. As I grew deeper into my commitment to Christ, I learned truth through my many mistakes, and each time, I discovered how narrow my own virtues were leading me deeper in my need for the Lord."

In my opinion, the brother relating this experience knew what he was doing and he willingly and bravely allowed the Lord to transform him resulting in an appreciation and more of the Lord.

Test of Commitment

Biblically, no relationship with God is without a test (Deuteronomy 8:2). At the beginning of his relationship with God, Abraham’s faith and obedience were tested (Genesis 22:1) and through this, his commitment was revealed. In acceptance of His commitment to His ministry and the work of the cross, our Lord Jesus allowed Satan’s test and completed His work leaving us an example of commitment (John 17:4; 1 Peter 2:21). Furthermore, in his zeal and commitment to the Lord, Paul the apostle, boldly declared and said, “Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus” (Acts 21:13).

Generally, within the Bible itself and without having time to refer to external historical sources, Christianity has a richly decorated history of brave and bold men and women of God who defied Kings and rulers, hardships and persecution in their commitment to God and in His commitment to them God rescued and upheld their cause (Daniel 3:16-18; Esther 4:15-16; Romans 8:35). Unlike today’s Christians, these warriors of our faith did not allow the discouragement of challenges as a license to complain and show bitterness. In contrast, they encouraged themselves on God’s deliverance because their refusal to bow to pressure shows their commitment (Daniel 6:20-22). Please allow me to share this brief experience, a few weeks into my new job in April 2010 after the Lord blessed me with the job He promised me (see Please Evangelize article), I complained to Him that the job was not what I expected due to the work demands and pressures. My complaints displeased the Lord and He told me to appreciate what I have and that complaining is an expression of bad spiritual fruit (Hebrews 12:28; Philippians 2:14-15). We often expect things coming from God to be easy and that is where we are wrong. The children of Israel were given and promised the Land of milk and honey but through obedience to God and at the cost of blood and sweat they received it (Numbers 33:53; Joshua 6:1-21; 7:3-12). When David was promised and anointed by God to take the Kingship from Saul, was his ascend to the throne easy? No! He faced endless troubles and persecution from Saul (1 Samuel 23:7-24). Likewise, the enemy is waging war against the children of God (Revelation 12:17; 1 Peter 5:8). However, as we obey God's Word and "Make every effort" to enter through the narrow gate, we will overcome him and receive God's promises (Luke 13:24; Revelation 12:11; Revelation 2:7).

The Christian message is being undermined by those who propose God as ‘give me’ and ‘fix it for me” and the moment people realize that it was after all not that easy, they quit and forsake their initial commitment (Luke 8:13). Having been a Christian for more than 20 years, I admit that I tried different things with God to get His attention. These were amongst others, complaints, getting angry with God for not doing something for me, selfish crying, and refusing to obey by not reading my Bible or praying. Through all these manipulative acts, my gain was just frustration that left me at the crossroads of my commitment. And moments after finding courage I would remind myself of the humility and faith others before I expressed and endured and this served as my encouragement to endure with a humble attitude (James 4:1-10).

Unswervingly Giving of Ourselves to God

There are some noteworthy people in the Bible who were commended for following the Lord God wholeheartedly without swerving to the left or right. Among them is King Josiah (2 Chronicles 34:2) and King David (1 Kings 14:8; 1 Kings 15:5). As determined believers, they sought the Lord, humbled themselves at His word, repented of their sins, purged the land of wickedness and idolatry, fought God's battles, cared about the well-being of God's temple, and trusted God by looking to Him even in hardship (2 Chronicles 34:3-28; 2 Samuel; Psalm 51).

As a testimony, we have some ministry members who had set a meeting to get together for fellowship and prayer. Before their meeting, some of their family members got sick with a cold and had not fully recovered by the day they planned to meet. In their commitment, they did not use this excuse to miss out on fellowship with the King of Kings who said, “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst" (Matthew 18:20). Hence, they were blessed with God’s presence and encouraged to meet to pray together again. Likewise, there are many believers in Christ who show commitment to the Lord by seeking Him and serving Him despite discouragements, trials, or fear. They do it out of obedience to God and this shows love which is pleasing to God (1 John 5:2).

Therefore, in order to learn and receive from God, we are required to give ourselves wholly to His service and Lordship; in other words, our will in submission to His Will (Matthew 26:42; John 5:30). Our will becomes subject to His and His priorities become our interest. Knowing the heart and intentions of man, if we attempt to use God for personal gain, He renders our efforts fruitless and without reward (Matthew 6:33). This is surely not pleasing teaching to the world and sadly, many blaspheme the Lord as being a dictator. If we only follow the world's self-centered way of "self-actualization", we stand to lose your life, but we gain it when we sacrifice it in obedience to Christ (Mark 8:35). Fundamentally, the Lord has only given the human race two choices: the broad way to destruction and the narrow road to life (Matthew 7:13-14; Deuteronomy 30:19-20). If we love life and the absolute good of a life as promised by the Lord (John 3:16-17), there is the hope of peace and eternal life. Living in commitment to God’s will always disagree with rules given by man; but as it is, human rules seek freedom and independence from God (1 Samuel 8:6; Numbers 14:4; Exodus 32:4). As Christians, we have been given an opportunity to commit to a cause leading to eternal life. Let us, therefore, embrace it without complaints about this choice leads to a satisfying life of joy and peace (Romans 2:7).

In conclusion, have you been falling short of your commitment to God through compromise, complaints, excuses, or trials? In the Bible, Paul and Barnabas focused on “strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith", declaring boldly that: “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” (Acts 14:22). So, be encouraged not to let any trials or discouragements hinder you from your dedication to the Lord Jesus.

Blessed Commitment,

Formation Of A New World Religious Body

One World Religious System

"The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and was glittering with gold, precious stones, and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. The name written on her forehead was a mystery: ‘Babylon the great the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth’ (Revelations 17:4-5 NIV).

Visions to Claudia (20/07/2020).

The Lord appeared to me in a vision and said, "Things will be different for you and your family after the lockdown". 

Interpretation: The Lord revealed that the lockdown around the world will come to an end, but life will never be the same as before for us and many other families around the world. Please continue praying while being watchful we do not expect the same world.
Being Ready For The Kingdom Of God (14 July 2020).

I had a vision while I was walking and Angel of the Lord appeared to me and said, "Claudia you only have two more years to get ready". After I heard these words I saw towards my right there were many Christian brothers and sisters who were all happy and I could sense they were ready for the coming of the Lord. 

Interpretation: Dear READER, please be careful when you read this message. We are NOT saying the Rapture will take place in two years. Generally, the Lord is giving the unprepared Christians two years to get their spiritual houses in order (Isaiah 38:1) and it is best to grow in God's grace now so that when times of trials arrive we would be humble and ready.If you owe someone work towards repaying. If unforgiveness or being worldly repent. We can assure you in a different vision the Lord showed Claudia on July 13,2020 that Christians will not escape being persecuted.

It’s been a few weeks since the Lord laid this message on my heart to remind members of the body that the time is ripe and soon we will see the introduction of a super religious body to the world. While this Church body will profess to be religious in nature, it will function as a political arm of the world powers to control religious organizations across the globe.

Now there is not really much scriptural evidence regarding this coming religious body except what the book of Revelation provides in chapters 17, 18, and 19 and you may read all about it there. Throughout the years, the Lord has given us revelation regarding this mystery through various ministers of the gospel and we profoundly acknowledge the work many of them did on a relevant and important message as this in the past, and as such we might not differ much.

As a bible student, I have been in the business of both studying and observing world events since 1992. During that time, I literally followed every news item that relates to the development of political and economical co-operation between nations. Back then, there was not really much except the minor wars, earthquakes and the creation of the euro currency in terms of the ‘signs of the times’ (Matthew 24:3-31) to compare to what is unfolding in our time. Today and with the improvement of banking technology, we can attest to the fact that there are various ways digitally to make and receive payments where banks around the world operate on common interface platforms to enable easy transactions and to control the in and outflow of cash.

The New Common World Financial Order

We will not be dwelling much on this, except to say that the world economy has been designed to operate in unity and most United Nations members States are able to access funding and advice on political and economical reforms from various organizations like the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and other private organizations. Like we said in our ‘mark of the beast’ article, being part of new world political order they will make it impossible for individual countries to resist the change to a new universal currency after the reset or collapse of the current world economical system.

In recent times, Pope Francis and others have been vigorously campaigning for the unification of world religions and this has been widely reported in various media platforms. We need to mention that the Lord has revealed to us that this religious body will be more political in character and its aim is to create ‘tolerance’ among religions and to weaken the saving grace of the gospel through a deceitful theological narrative. Furthermore, this religious body will be supported financially by rich individuals and member countries of the new world order and affiliated churches will receive funding from this super-rich mother body (Revelation 17:4) while persecutions and insults will be meted out to churches who oppose the teachings of this religious body (Revelation 17:6). In addition, and as part of the persecutions drive, we have been shown that websites like ours and many other similar ministries will be discontinued as we will be operating ‘outside the policy requirements’ of web hosting companies.

How Long Before The New Religious Body Is Unveiled?

We all know brethren that of times we cannot say, BUT! The Lord has given us something to consider and this we have shared in our visions section.

In conclusion, please consider this as a developing article that will be updated as the Lord provides revelation relating to this coming religious body.

Being Kingdom Minded

Are We Exercising Greed Or Faith

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1Peter 2:9-10 NIV).

Important Notice: Brethren, please be informed that our 'Mark of the Beast' article will be updated as frequently as the Lord reveals something. Because of the importance of the mark of the beast message, we will create a separate tab so that you can easily access it. We did receive an update from the Lord which we shared below but update later on that article. 

Mark of the Beast Revealed Message given to Brother Glenn (July 8, 2020).

In a vision message,  the Lord drew my attention to a news article with the following heading, "The Anti-Christ denounces Christians". Indeed, if he will vilify the Lord and blasphemy the Prince of Peace, surely Christians will not escape his attacks! (Daniel 11:36). 

It is a fact, some Christians despise these types of articles and they don’t like to hear that hardship is looming! However, the true discerning will take heed and takes refuge in the Lord. Just on this website alone and besides what you may have heard or read elsewhere, Christians have been thoroughly warned about being worldly-minded. The Bible says that we should set our minds on things above where Christ is seated (Colossians 3:1) and through our conduct, lifestyles, and attitudes we are storing up treasures for eternity (Matthew 6:19-20). Brethren, let us truly take our salvation very seriously. If scripture regards us as pilgrims that are passing through this world (1 Peter 2:11-12), why are we still conforming to worldly standards in our conduct and appetite for riches? (Romans 12:2).

Are we being driven by greed or a lack of faith? By greed, we mean a desire for more than what we really need (Philippians 4:11-13) or by our lack of faith by not trusting God for our daily bread or provisions (Matthew 6:34). I need to stress though that we are not implying that a Christian should be a beggar, God forbids (Philippians 4:19) the point we are emphasizing here is to encourage Christians to guard against the spirit of greed and needless request. Thus, God will provide for our needs [if we have enough faith to trust Him] and not when we desire the things others have (Philippians 2:3).

Furthermore, the Lord Himself gave us some powerful visions exposing the false prosperity doctrine which has scriptural reference (1 John 2:15-17; Luke 8:14) and yet you still find Christians following those who promise them that God will make them millionaires. If you can identify with the above my dear brother or sister, then frankly your heart is set on the wrong treasure!

Useless Treasures

Additionally, throughout the Old Testament we read how King David, King Solomon and others poured treasures into the holy Temple of the Lord (2 Samuel 8:11; 1 Kings 7:48-51), as precious as gold is yet when the Israelites disobeyed the Lord those treasures became worthless and God allowed King Nebuchadnezzar to destroy the temple and carry the temple treasures to Babylon (Jeremiah 52:13-19). What are we learning from this? The Israelites regarded the temple and its treasuries as the most precious and indeed it was since the glorious covenant box of the Almighty God dwelt in there. But were their hearts on the Presence of God? NO! They boasted about the temple and its treasuries (1 Kings 9:8). The Bible says, God is jealous and He does not tolerate rivalry (Exodus 34:14) and if worldly things causes such rivalry He will have it removed as we have seen above. We should also not fail to mention that stumbling blocks to our faith should be avoided because eternal life is more precious than anything this world could offer (Matthew 5:29).

Strive To Be Debt Free

Brethren, the Lord spoke to me a few weeks ago to warn Christians about the addiction of debt and its consequences. In emphasize and more especially the times we living in today, countless people will default unable to repay their debts and many will face foreclosures and repossession of things. Therefore, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ if you have a big house and you still owe years of bond or mortgage, consider to sell, settle your debt and buy a smaller property. Likewise, if you own an expensive car, consider downgrading to a cheaper and least expensive model use the other funds to settle debts this will save you the embarrassment and this crisis as we previously warned is leading us to the mark of the beast and those trapped in debt will not escape! The bible says “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty” (Proverbs 22:3).

In conclusion, the Bible says that we are pilgrims passing through this world (1 Peter 2:11-12) and if we have been elected to possess Heaven then we ought to be caring, sharing and Heavenly minded Christians who does not fear want, hunger or death (Romans 8:38-39; Hebrews 11:13).
