Are These The Times...

The Kingdom Of God Is Near

He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near (Luke 21:29-31 NIV).

 Since the Lord first told us back in 2010, that His coming was near, we took it literally as the Apostles did in their time (Revelation 22:12; 2 Timothy 3:1-4) and why would we doubt when the LORD JESUS CHRIST Himself said that to us. Thus, throughout the years, we endured ridicule and scorn from some believers who even labeled us as false. By the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, we endured while we continue to warn, encourage and pray for the brotherhood to look at the times. For nothing is as fulfilling for any Christian as to be filled with the JOY of finally meeting and seeing our Lord and Saviour. Again, the Scripture warns 'that only those who endure until the end shall be saved' (Matthew 24:13).

In addition, if there is anybody both Christian and non-Christian who doubts that our present times are peculiar to what we were used to then they are operating without discernment and they need prayer! 

Now, the Lord has stirred the spirit of the aggressor, the King of the North (of Israel) Russia to move towards the fulfillment of the Scriptures (Jeremiah 50:41-42) and this already has had a global effect in terms of the energy crisis and food shortages. In addition, and as I predicted and mentioned some time ago, the current United Nations has failed to bring peace to the world and this body will be replaced by the ten kings (Revelation 17:12; Daniel 7:11-22), and they the ten kings will make the beast the super-ruler). Therefore, mark my words, the world will never return to the pre-covid-19 era nor normalcy with Russia and the Western countries. It will NOT HAPPEN! As a factual gospel truth, things will continue to deteriorate economically until the Rapture and beyond. You may consider me as a 'doom prophet', but we heard the Lord say, the coming months will not be easy...those who don't know Him must repent! and those who are still not taking their salvation seriously will not make it. 

In conclusion, we encourage you all dear brethren to continue praying and seeking the Lord, there is just NO more time to cling to worldly things and desires the KING is NEAR! We will continue to warn as the Lord provides guidance.

Blessed Grace

Revealing The Secrets Of Your Heart

How God's Word Reveals Our Hearts Secrets

" ...As they listen, their secret thoughts will be exposed, and they will fall to their knees and worship God, declaring, “God is truly here among you” (1 Corinthians 14:25).

Vision by Brother Glenn (21/05/2022)

I had a vision on the above date just after my morning prayers. I saw a man of God preaching the word. I could perceive the man was blind and physically disabled but the message that came from him came with convicting power. I could sense that the very things he preached about were meant for me at that moment, the message was prophetic in nature. I then heard the man of God explaining to me saying, "Did you know that every time you read the Bible or listen to a sermon, the message is intended for you because God knew beforehand that you would be there to hear the message. Therefore, don't ever doubt the accuracy of the message and think it's intended for others, it speaks to you and reveals the secrets of your heart"

Receive And Accept Correction

Now brethren, often when I read the Word of God and come across some scriptural passage that highlights some activity in my life that is displeasing to God or some fruit of the Spirit which I lack, the conviction through the Holy Spirit brings me to the point of acknowledging my shortcomings in a short prayer while I'm reading. I can therefore confidently share with you the Lord is always pleased when we show our humility to Him by acknowledging our shortcomings.

A few weeks ago, the Lord gave a prophetic word to one of my daughters and she did not take it well. She totally rejected that message of the Lord, when we all knew she needed that word since her very actions witnessed her wrongful conduct. After rebuking her for despising the Word of the Lord, and gently reminding her that the Lord's rebuke has good intent it is to save us and not to condemn us, I pointed out to her that "Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path, he who hates correction will die" (Proverbs 15:10 NIV). 

How often do we avoid or reject a Word intended for our good? Instead of acknowledging our guilt and accepting the conviction which could lead to our deliverance, we simply continue in our sins (Psalm 32:5). In conclusion, a prophetic message that speaks into the future is great and well accepted, how much more should we regard a personal prophetic message that speaks to into our lives to correct our ways? Thus, next time you hear a word, don't doubt it, it is intended for you right at that moment, the Lord knew you would be there to receive it.

Is Satan Listening To Our Prayers?

 

God Answers, But Satan Opposes

Then he said, “Daniel, don't be afraid. God has heard your prayers ever since the first day you decided to humble yourself in order to gain understanding. I have come in answer to your prayer. The angel prince of the kingdom of Persia opposed me for 21 days. Then Michael, one of the chief angels, came to help me, because I had been left there alone in Persia" (Daniel 10:12-13).


Prophecy Update: The Lord said, do not fear the things that are about to unfold regarding the current clouds of war, just continue to pray and purify yourself to escape most of the atrocities that are about to come about. The Lord has revealed to me that Russia and its allies are eyeing to overthrow the US dollar and replace it with another and this means will be achieved through the destructive force of war. My Western brethren, please pray and work hard to become debt-free. Brethren, I am pained by the evil we are about to witness, I don't know when but please join us in prayer.

Brethren, the Lord has revealed to us that when we pray without faith, or with unconfessed sin our prayers are wasted and it does not reach Heaven (Matthew 5:23-24). This brings to remembrance a message the Lord gave us when we disobeyed Him and He ordered us to redo those prayers, remember those prayers were for the deliverance, salvation, and blessings for others. It also brings to remembrance that the Lord revealed that if we show love and kindness to others, it greatly pleases our Heavenly Father.

Now given to the above scripture, the devil and his demons are listening to our prayers, why did they (demons) try to intercept Daniel's prayers if they were not listening? As a result, Daniel had to wait for 21 days for an answer to his prayers. During the time that the Lord was speaking to us as a family, we would ask the Lord almost anything but He would not always give us an answer because certain requests required fasting and prayer over a period of many days (Acts 13:2).

Just Keep On Praying

 As a pastor, I often heard people and Christians alike saying that 'God does not answer my prayers'. While no one has been given the authority to judge the prayers of others, we need to consider a few things when we pray. Are we praying by Faith? Do we believe that the things we are asking are realistic, (Mark 11:24), not offered to promote greed or desiring the things of others, or do we really have a need, and how urgently do we need it? I would often ask the Lord when I would receive something He promised but His answers would always be that "Your father must just have and continue to pray". We encourage you likewise dear brethren, don't give up praying and believing, you will receive your breakthrough.

Being A Faithful Christian

The Life Of A Fruit Bearing Christian

“So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another” (Romans 5:12 NKJV).

Some years ago, I closely followed the life and ministry of a man in Christ. For the sake of this article, we would call him Brother Jones (not his real name). When Brother Jones committed his life to the Lord in the early 1990s through his zeal and love for Christ, he moved the hearts of many brethren who lost their joy in the Lord by demonstrating to them the basic value of having faith and having a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Having been only a few months in the Lord, I remembered Brother Jones receiving answers to his prayers regarding some of his most critical and trying problems. The closer and more faithful a person walks with the Lord, the harder the trials become (2 Timothy 3:12), and the greater the JOY of the Lord.

Without the ‘permission’ of his pastor, Brother Jones took to the streets as a sole witness after having received a strong conviction through his reading of the Bible to obey the Lord in fruit-bearing (John 15:16). Generally, the Church's denominational spirit limits the effectiveness of individual Christians. I can recall a good few years ago, how a pastor rebuked me for going out witnessing without his permission. It must be mentioned an individual Christian represents Christ and the will of God (Matthew 7:21-23) and we should not be a stumbling block to those who exercise their faith through the Will of the Holy Spirit (Mark 9:38-41) that is why the bible says that each one will receive from the Lord the things he or she did in the body (Ephesians 6:8; 1 Corinthians 4:5). In other words, we will be judged as individuals for our works which will follow us (Revelation 14:13).

Using Talents To Garner Heavenly Rewards

Furthermore, as we have encouraged before in some previous articles, the Lord will not be pleased with any Christian who hides his or her talents behind the Church system (Matthew 25:14-27) which administers funds in a collective way to sponsor mission work or feed the hungry, we are individually called to bear fruit and bring glory to our Heavenly Father (Ephesians 1:11-14; John 15:16). We are still being challenged even in this late eleventh (11) hour (Matthew 20:6) to witness and be soul winners (Mark 16:15), to feed the hungry and clothe the naked (Matthew 25:35-40).

In conclusion, it is natural that when things get murky around us and out of desperation, we resort to complaining and when that happens fear appears and it chokes our faith and our joy in the Lord (Deuteronomy 8:2; Matthew 14:28-31). Consequently, this opens us up to sinning resulting in us disobeying the Lord (Romans 6:23). Now we cannot allow discouragement and the pressures of our times to ‘disconnect’ spiritually from Christ we need our faith and perseverance to outlast the challenges of our times. Let us, therefore, press on our redemption is most definitely at hand than when we first believed (Romans 13:11-12).

Be Steadfast In Prayer

Continue In Uncompromising Christian Lifestyle

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

Voice of the Lord (20 April 2022)

Before I got up for my morning prayers, I received a Word from the Lord, there was no vision, but I felt the Lord's Awesome Presence and I heard Him say in a THUNDEROUS LOUD VOICE that vibrated throughout the universe, "BE STEADFAST". 

Brief Prophetic Word

Beloved brethren, the Lord has revealed to us that World War III is unavoidable and inevitable. Because the World is NOT looking to the Lord for solutions instead, they are focused on fighting for the resources of this world. The Lord commands all Christians to pray for the Ukraine and the war in that Country will affect the entire global community economically. The conflict there is not isolated it will soon involve and affect us all.

Brethren, we intended to write an article on things to come but we still waiting on the Lord to give us the go-ahead on that revelation. Meanwhile, we'd like to encourage you to be steadfast in your faith and conviction in the Lord, and to be consistent in your prayers. In our prayer I and prayer II articles we emphasized that the Lord is not pleased with prayers that are offered hurriedly and without the motivation of faith behind it (James 5:13-16; Colossians 4:2). 

Often, people pray for about five (5) minutes daily and expect answers from God. We have already shared that a Christian's prayer life takes on the model of a lifestyle (Luke 5:16; Ephesians 3:14; Colossians 4:2). Like we said elsewhere on this blog, a Christian's daily prayers are intercessory in nature just as our Lord and the apostle Paul showed us in the aforementioned verse above.

In other words, when we lead a prayerful lifestyle, we will always be 'wrestling' with something or 'wrestling' something from the devil for our own good or for the good and well-being of others (2 Timothy 1:3; 2 Corinthians 12:8-10). The Bible discourages idleness in every sphere of our Christian lives (1 Thessalonians 5:14; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-12). It is a fact, that many Christians are engaged in worldliness through their addictive television watching and their cellular phone social networking habits. As it is, these worldly Christians care little about the salvation of souls and even that of their own close family members. their appetite is to feed their social and worldly needs.

In conclusion, when we Christians will get our turn to appear before the Lord, we will have to 'give account for the work we did', not our good works but our works of service in the body will be revealed (2 Corinthians 5:10). Let us thus keep up the pace of our Christian faith as we guard and execute our Lord's commands faithfully and ungrudgingly.


Blessed Faith
