Just Asking . . . For the 6th Time

1 Peter 1:5-7  (NKJV) (A)who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (B)In this you greatly rejoice, though now (C)for a little while, if need be, (D)you have been [a]grieved by various trials, that (E)the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though (F)it is tested by fire, (G)may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,    source

Who are kept by the power of GOD it reads. I have questions.

How by the power of GOD are people kept, especially now?
Through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 
This is the last time. It has been since Yeshua ascended.

So, in this last time is it being revealed who is in saving faith?
Will this revealing escalate? That is will world events continue to make it easier to discern who has saving faith and who does not?

In this you greatly rejoice it reads. Am I?
And about what? What am I to greatly rejoice about in this last time?
though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials
Am I to greatly rejoice that my trials are for only a little while?
Okay. A little while is better than a long while, right?
And it does say if need be, doesn’t it?
So, unless it is necessary, I will not be suffering. That’s good, right?
Oh! It’s not just one trial but various. That’s all kinds, right?
But it still says IF NEED BE. I have to remember that.

Wait. Why are these trials necessary, again?
that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
Oh. No more questions. At least at this moment. 🙂 

Let me Introduce You

Vancouver, Washington is many miles from my homeplace, and yet I am inclined to share with you an opportunity to be involved; perhaps only through prayer.

His name is Rey Reynolds and he recently entered the political arena. He is asking for the vote of the people in the 49th District. So, what does that matter to me as I do not live in his district; what does it matter to you? That depends. Whether or not you are fond of all the people of America. Whether we care or not who is governing everywhere in these 50 United States of America. Because who is governing each District, County, or State, of this Land determines how well (or not) we are United. And that matters to me.

This is Rey Reynolds.

Today I heard him speak via an interview with Heidi St. John at Get Off the Bench with Heidi St. John.  I access Heidi’s podcast at Spotify. You may also go to her webpage, menu button podcast, and locate today’s interview.

So, I am here to urge you to use this link to introduce yourself to him and determine if perhaps you would be inclined to pray for him and his family.

 

FATHER GOD, thank You for this introduction to Rey and his family via the internet. I appreciate the transformation You have worked. I appreciate the mission You have called him to and I appreciate all that You will yet do for, in and through him and his family. You know the uphill challenge that is before him and I am asking You for protection and guidance and every resource he needs to do this work. I pray for favor and for people to come alongside him to help him, encourage him, and give him success as he seeks to do Your will. And, Holy Spirit, I pray for prayer warriors to stand in the gap on his behalf and so I am asking for Your prompting to pray for him and his family and his campaign as You see fit in Yeshua’s name.

 

A Fox and a Torch

Papa, the People of this world are crazier than a fox with a torch tied to his tail.
It’s yang yang this and yang yang that; the media feeds it and people eat it up like pigs eating slop. My soul is sick of it; how You put up with humanity is beyond my comprehension. I am grateful but at this moment I sure would like some rude awakenings to dawn.

I’d like to see some common sense but I know that would not be enough. It is so sorrowful to me that voices of holy reason are not as strong or plentiful as the voices of hate and rebellion and political correctness. It’s putrid.
Father, please help. Without Your intervention these fools are going to blow this place to bits and what of the children; not that they care about children since they have murdered them by the millions. It’s like sitting here watching my house burn to the ground with my hands tied. Please help. I suspect I am not Your only child who is in a similar state of soul.
We need Your encouragement and we need eyes of faith and anointed hands and feet to go to those who are willing to listen. I pray for that.
I pray for Your Bride to act like She is Your Bride and not a harlot. Please forgive us, revive us. Abba, I pray Your Word will be preached and believed SOON. Preachers of old preached about sin and hell and heaven; I have not heard that for a long while. It’s feel-good sermons these days – like how to make this life heaven on earth; well, Papa it’s not working it’s getting more hellish every day.
But You know this; I just needed to tell on them and now ask You to have mercy, forgive us, and please HOLY SPIRIT rain down on us not sprinkles or even showers but a steady outpouring of conviction and repentance. Thank You, Papa. Amen and amen in JESUS name.

Hot Buttons

Papa, I am thinking this
The reason the terms white privilege and police brutality are all over the media now is because the word racism no longer sufficiently whips up enough violence. White privilege and police brutality are now the hot buttons to stir hatred, and the agenda of the political machine. I think this continuous stream of hot button words are additionally used hoping to cower millions of people into shame and guilt for acts they did not commit nor for which they can atone or erase. I think brutality exists both within and beyond the organizations of law enforcement. I think corruption is abounding and I am afraid for this Nation.
if You know this is not true, please correct me and show me what is true. If any of this thinking is founded in truth I am asking You to intervene on our behalf. I know we as a people do not deserve Your mercy or grace but I am asking please grace us with Your intervention and with conviction and repentance I pray.

DISCRIMINATION

Racism is NOT going to be stopped in America as we are presently responding because racism is a symptom; it is not the cause of the chaos and hate we are experiencing.

The measures thus far being taken are not even a band-aid on the massive hemorrhaging. After the election perhaps there will be a lull but I am not counting on that and even if there is there will be a regrouping. I hope my hope is sound and that there are more people who know the truth than we are shown by the media.

In my world black on white and white on black hate is rarely seen by these eyes of mine – the last time I remember an incident of either was the day after the election of the first term of President Obama. It occurred in the parking lot of Walmart provoked only by the paleness of my skin. I remember it because it is in sharp contrast to my daily experience. I am in awe and grateful!

It’s like this, ALL could have a similar living style because GOD is no respecter of persons.
Albeit, His Way must be chosen (daily) and few do that.
The road to hell, chaos, hatred, discrimination, and every other complaint and demand we are hearing are SYMPTOMS; not the cause of what we are seeing.

DISCRIMINATION toward GOD is the cause. The customary word is SIN.

When we let GOD deal with our SIN we are healed and healed people don’t have the symptom of racism. And if you don’t believe me take it up GOD; listen to Him and He will enlighten you.

Acts 10:34  (KJV) 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Matthew 7:12-14  (NASB) 12 “In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets. 13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find itsource
