Lord of all creation - I come to You now in the name of this Jesus I have heard about.  I was born into a sinful world and have lived in ignorance and rebellion to Your truth.  Jesus, I accept You as God manifested in the flesh, born as an offering for my sins.  Born to pay the price I am unable to pay - the price required for restored fellowship with my Creator.

I am sorry for all my sins and turn away from them. Please forgive me and make me a vessel fit for Your use.  I release any bitterness or unforgiveness in my heart and ask You to deal with those situations.  I believe You were born of a virgin, died on the cross, rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven and are now sitting at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for me.

You are now Lord of my life.


Confess Jesus before men and He will confess you before the Father.
Take me home now please.

others may - you may not
(a repeat daily)

"i have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer i who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which i now live in the flesh i live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." gal 2:20

here’s a tract that was published back in the 1800’s. it was written by a wesleyan minister by the name of, g.d. watson, and it spoke to me so strongly, i had to share it with you.  after you read it, you may discover why some things are forbidden for you, that others seem to be allowed to do, without repercussions.

others may - you may not

if God has called you to be really like Jesus, He will draw you into a life of crucifixion and humility.  God’s call will put such demands of obedience on you that you will not be able to follow other people, or measure yourself by other christians.  at times, He will let other people do things which He will not let you do.

other christians who seem very religious will push themselves, pull wires, and work schemes to carry out their plans.  you cannot, and if you attempt it, you will meet with failure and rebuke from the Lord.

others may boast of themselves, of their work, of their successes, but the Holy Spirit will not allow you to do any such thing, and if you begin it, He will lead you to despise yourself and all your good works.

others may be allowed to succeed in making money, or may have a legacy left to them, but it is likely God will keep you poor.  God wants you to have something far better than gold, namely, a helpless dependence upon Him, that He may demonstrate His faithful love for you in supplying your needs day by day.

God may let others be honored and put forward, and keep you hidden in obscurity in order to produce some fragrant fruit for His coming glory which can only be produced in the shade.  He may let others be great, but keep you small. He may let others do a work for Him and get the credit for it now.  the reward for your work is held in the hands of Jesus and you will not see it until He comes.

the Holy Spirit will put a strict watch over you with a jealous love.  He will rebuke you for the little words and feelings or for wasting your time.  so make up your mind that God is an infinite Sovereign, and has a right to do as He pleases with His own.  He does not owe you an explanation of these mysteries.  but if you give yourself to be His child, He will wrap you up in a jealous love, and give you the precious blessings for those who belong, heart and soul, to Him.

settle it forever, then, that you are to deal directly with the Holy Spirit.  it is His option to tie your tongue, or chain your hand, or close your eyes in ways that He does not seem to use with others.  and when you are so possessed by the living God that your heart delights over this peculiar, personal, private, jealous guardianship and management of the Holy Spirit over your life, you will have found the vestibule of heaven.

what is your only comfort in life and death?

that i am not my own, but belong, body and soul, in life and in death, to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.  He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood, and He has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.

He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven.  in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.  because i belong to Him, Christ, by His Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for Him.

– heidelberg catechism

"yet indeed i also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom i have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that i may gain Chris." phil 3:8

could this be the year

"but of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only." matt 24:36

ah, the famous scripture that believers and unbelievers alike are always ready to hurl at us rapture conscious believers.  it may well be the only verse non-believers can quote from scripture, but they've got that one memorized - minus chapter and verse.

and yes, it's true, we have been heralding the return of our Lord for a long time.  we have not just been crying wolf, but are anxiously and watchfully been desirous to see Him for a long time.  if anyone hasn't, i would question their true dedication to Him.  we pant for our Lord as the deer pants for the water.  "whom have i in heaven but You?  and there is none upon earth that i desire besides You." psa 73:25  even the disciples longed for His return as soon as He left.

and so, i ask again: "could this be the year?"  i'm not finalizing the day or the hour; just feeling the urgency and expectancy of one about to give birth.  i see everywhere the bowl of the measure of sin filling up.  His wrath is ready to be pored out. 

there have always been the sacrifice of the most innocent which has never pleased God.  while this generation have surely overtaken all previous ones in this barbaric practice of sacrificing one's progeny for their person, now those escaping abortion are being confused, castrated and conformed into the delusion of their manipulation.  they have sacrificed the truth for a lie.

"and what I say to you, I say to all: watch!" mark 13:37  everyday now is becoming an urgent watchday.  even unbelievers are sensing a time of troubling ahead.  they call it a "black swan event."  the black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight.  the term is based on an ancient saying that presumed black swans did not exist, until they were discovered in australia in 1697, and it then became reinterpreted to mean an unforeseen and consequential event.

the rapture is the world's ultimate black swan event.  it is an unforeseen and consequential event indeed.  the world will try to explain it away, perhaps as an alien abduction or some other notable means.  the truth will only be know by those fair-weather believers who were left behind to endure the tribulation.

the convergence of all the signs in prophecy are now visible to those with eyes desiring to see.  even now, the globalist elite are planning a mass depopulation to make room for themselves while the richest are building bunkers, hoping to find escape from what they fear is coming.  to those called and chosen ones who persist in their leisure and linger in their sleep God says: "awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light." eph 5:14

in fact, i am foregoing the usual "familiar friday" message today to alert everyone to the urgency and imminence i feel in my spirit.  in conclusion, i will answer my own question.  yes, this could be the year; the year our blessed hope will manifest "to all who have loved His appearing." 2 tim 4:8  you will notice the Holy Spirit said through paul here "appearing" and not "coming."  this event is the rapture, not His return to the earth.  it is the bridegroom coming to receive His bride.

live each moment as though it was nearing time to get off work, while working hurriedly to accomplish what needs to be done.  "others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh." jude 23

we have barely under 300 days now left in this year.  i believe one of those days that clarion call will be heard by those who have loved His appearing.  believe me also when i say my heart aches for those who will have to most likely give up their life for salvation then.  at the very least, the tribulation will be such as has never been seen before.

"therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness." 2 pet 3:11  we are not now just numbering our days to acquire a heart of wisdom, but counting the days until our blessed hope arrives.  even so, come Lord Jesus!
