The Father bestows Christ's name upon you, and by His Spirit enables you to walk as Jesus did. This means you must walk in the light, and put off the deeds of darkness. In other words, the primary challenge for Christians is to live like they are, in fact, Christians. You cannot do so on the strength, authority, or renown of your own name. Overcoming sin & walking in holiness, whether individually or nationally, can only be done in the name of Jesus. This can all be summed by saying we believe that Christians ought to be born again.

Title: Post Tenebras, Lux Text: II Peter 1:1-2 FCF: We often struggle putting priority on serving our God. Prop: Because God has given us all we need for life and godliness, we must build upon the faith we've received. Scripture Intro: [Slide 1] Turn in your bible to II Peter 1. The title of the sermon is not in a language that many of you may know. Perhaps I could ask someone who's taken some Latin if he/she could translate for us. (Leland, Mallory). After darkness, light. The significance of this phrase is multifaceted. As we'll see today in foundations, this phrase, at least conceptually, is found in Isaiah 9. Matthew quotes this passage in chapter 4:16 of his gospel. Acts 26:18 references either this passage or Job's expression that after the evening hope comes in the morning in Job 17:12. And Jesus reveals that He is the light of the world. Whoever follows Him will not walk in darkness but in light and life (John 8:12). So first this phrase is a biblical concept of darkness conveying a place in which someone is trapped. Enslaved. Unable to break free. Darkness is not something you can do anything about – you must simply wait for something outside yourself to change it. Like the coming of morning. The reformers took this mantra to speak about the darkness that had come over the Roman Catholic church at that time. Not just darkness of sin practices, but even darkness of doctrinal confusion and digression. This phrase aptly communicates the state of natural man before God acts to draw them to Himself. Before God gives the truth of Christ to anyone, they are hopelessly lost in darkness. It is one of the great metaphors of scripture describing the total inability of men to seek God. Afterall, how can you seek light when you are in utter darkness? Today – we will see some of the inner workings of how God… turns on the light for His people. There is so much in these first two verses. Honestly I've cut so much from this sermon and even after typing this sentence, I realize I'm going to have to cut more. So let's dive in, I am in II Peter chapter 1. I'll start reading in verse 1 from the NET. You can follow along in the pew bible on page 1369 or in whatever version you prefer. Transition: As I said, lots to cover – you'll need your thinking caps and probably steel toed boots. If you don't get that joke… you will. Let's go. I.) Our faith is given from God through His Son, so we must build upon the faith we've received. a. [Slide 2] 1 – From Simeon Peter, i. The majority of manuscript evidence insists that this be Simeon and not Simon. ii. Simeon would be the Hebrew spelling and Simon the Greek spelling. iii. It is worth noting that every letter written in Peter's name that has been proved to be a forgery is signed as being from either Peter or Simon Peter. iv. So, in a subtle way, the very first word of this text indicates the authenticity that Peter wrote it. v. But who is Simeon Peter? b. [Slide 3] A slave i. Any negative connotation of this term must be repudiated immediately. ii. Peter does not say this to shock his readers, to call up negative feelings toward his position, or even to emphasize his unwillingness to be in this position. iii. But we should also refrain from seeing this as a “bondservant” concept too. Certainly voluntarily choosing to enslave oneself to a master did exist in the Roman world – but it was not the norm. iv. Further, the word here used is the word douloV or slave. And that word would not necessarily mean the bondservant relationship. v. As we've pointed out before, the world of slavery in 1st century Rome is simply impossible to paint with a broad brush. vi. More likely Peter is pointing to an older concept of slavery. Moses, David, and Elijah were all said to be servants or slaves of God. vii. In this context a slave was not only the property of his master but also represented his master. So much so that to disrespect or ignore the slave is to do the same to the master. viii. In other words, our 21st century western minds conjure up negative images when Peter calls himself a slave. However, nothing could be further from the truth. ix. In fact, being a slave of Jesus Christ- would be quite a significant honor bump to him and any who would also be called a slave of Christ. x. But not just a slave… c. [Slide 4] And apostle of Jesus Christ i. Peter is an apostle. A sent one. ii. With this carries the full weight of authority to pass on doctrine and expect to be listened to and obeyed. iii. He was taught by Christ, saw him resurrected, and was commissioned to go and establish the church. iv. Peter taught at Pentecost – and his words were used by God to draw 3000 people to saving faith. v. He performed signs, wonders, and miracles to authenticate the message he preached. vi. It is with this position of gifted honor and authority that he writes to his audience. vii. But to whom does he write? d. [Slide 5] To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ i. In this short phrase there are a few things we need to address. 1. First, Peter does not address his audience the way he did in I Peter. a. If you remember he identified them as chosen exiles in the northern provinces of present-day Turkey. b. In this letter Peter does not actually mention any specifics of his audience. c. The closest he comes is in chapter 3 where he says he wrote a second time with the same purpose. d. This, of course, assumes that the previous letter was I Peter, and that the audience was the same. Not a big leap, but not certainly something we know for certain. He could be referring to a letter that has been lost. 2. [Slide 6] Second, let's look at the phrase “of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ” a. Does this mean “of our God and of our Savior Jesus Christ?” Meaning God the Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. b. Or does this mean “of our God and Savior, namely, Jesus Christ?” Meaning that Jesus is both Savior and God. c. There is a translation rule in Greek, which I won't bog you down with, but essentially it means that in this particular case, this would be the second option. “of our God and Savior, namely, Jesus Christ.” d. What is the significance of this statement? e. This stands as one of the clearest statements in the whole New Testament of the divinity of Jesus. f. Any theological system, belief, cult, religion that does not teach that Jesus was fully God and Man – two natures in one – as the early creeds confess – is unorthodox and should be rejected as false teaching. g. Mormonism, Jehovah's witnesses, and even present-day Jesuses that are stripped of divinity so that he is just a good teacher, prophet, miracle worker, or political activist – are false teachings and ought to be courageously and unashamedly labeled as heretical. h. Jesus IS God. Amen? 3. [Slide 7] The final point we need to make before moving on, will unfortunately not be made completely obvious UNTIL we do move on. Nevertheless, we should point it out to help us as we move forward. a. Peter is addressing his letter to a specific group of people. b. That group of people is not defined by their location but rather by their identity. c. Their identity has been gloriously affected by or through the righteousness of the Jesus their God and Savior. d. But we must ask… e. To which righteousness is Peter referring? f. Is it his faithfulness? His justice? His goodness? His saving righteousness? All of these are appropriate definitions of the word “righteousness.” ii. In order to answer that question, we need to pause our thoughts on this and keep reading. e. [Slide 8] Have been granted a faith i. Perhaps the first question needs to be, what does Peter mean by “faith” here? 1. Faith throughout the scriptures can speak of many different ideas, all of which are determined primarily by the context in which they are found. 2. [Slide 9] Faith can mean a. A set of beliefs or received doctrinal truths b. A personal trust c. Faithfulness 3. We can see the interrelationship of each of these. In many ways not one of these can exist without the others. However, the particular nuance can be important for us to understand. 4. In the context of II Peter he often refers to knowledge of God and Christ, reminded truths, and adding to such knowledge with more knowledge and holiness. 5. So, with this context in mind, it seems that the faith to which Peter is referring has to do with the illumination of the truth of Christ and our dependance or clinging to that truth. 6. [Slide 10] Meaning it is a combination of 1 and 2, but mostly 2. 7. Taking this definition of the word faith will actually fit quite well to some of the themes that Peter wishes to develop throughout the letter. 8. [Slide 11] So, the faith that Peter talks about is the sudden awakening to the identity and work of Christ and our subsequent dependance on that revealed truth. ii. [Slide 12] The second concept we must understand in this phrase is the word used here “have been granted.” 1. This word means to obtain by lot or to have assigned to you or to receive. 2. We can say you were given something or that you received a gift. One emphasizes the giver and the other the receiver. 3. This word serves to emphasize the giver not the receiver. 4. [Slide 13] One scholar wrote “… the attainment is not by one's own exertions, but is like ripe fruit falling into one's lap” 5. The NET actually does a great job by translating this - rather than receive – have been granted. 6. [Slide 14] In other words, the faith, or the awakening to truth and dependance on that truth, is something that fell into our lap. It was unforeseen. Even, to some degree, unexpected. And because it was unforeseen and unexpected, it was not by our own effort or exertion. 7. Faith – both the understanding of the truth of Christ and Him crucified and the personal trust in that for all hope – all of it is a gift given from God. And that gift comes through the righteousness of Jesus our God and Savior. iii. [Slide 15] But what definition should we take of this “righteousness” in light of the definition of faith and receiving it through this righteousness? 1. As we saw it is “through” the righteousness of Christ that an understanding and dependance on who Christ is and what He's done has fallen into our laps. 2. What kind of righteousness could make the fruit of faith fall to us? Is it Jesus' moral excellence? Is it Jesus' justice? Is it Jesus' faithfulness? Is it Jesus' saving righteousness? 3. [Slide 16] There are really only two positions that scholars take, but for reasons I will explain on Wednesday night at bible study, the only righteousness that makes sense in the context, would be the forensic or the imputed righteousness of Christ. His saving righteousness. What is this? 4. We divide these into two. 5. [Slide 17] His active and passive righteousness. a. Active: i. The fact that He did not sin. The fact that He fulfilled the law. The fact that Christ perfectly obeyed all of God's moral expectations for men. ii. The fact that Christ was a second Adam. The model human. iii. He came and with the Spirit of God and the Father's good pleasure and love – He did perfectly keep all that God commanded. iv. Meeting in every way God's covenant of works made by God with Adam. v. Adam could not keep it -but Christ did. vi. In the end, this is the righteousness that God will judge each of us by – and in the end all God's people will be permitted to enter into the Kingdom of God because we have His righteousness. b. Passive: i. His passive righteousness is displayed in His obedience to the Father to go to the cross and suffer as though He had committed every single sin of His people. ii. So in the end, not only are we judged according to the perfect and perpetual righteousness of Christ but we also we are judged without the total and complete unrighteousness of our sorry state. 6. So, this is the righteousness of Jesus our God and Savior. 7. This is actually summarized quite well in our NCC catechism questions #22 and #23 a. [Slide 18] #22 “Why must the Redeemer be truly Human?” i. That in human nature, He might on our behalf, perfectly obey the whole law and suffer the punishment for human sin; and also, that He might sympathize with our weaknesses. b. [Slide 19] #23 “Why must the Redeemer be truly God?” i. That because of His divine nature His obedience and suffering would be perfect and effective; and also, that He would be able to bear the righteous anger of God against sin and yet overcome death. 8. But we are not quite done. How does this righteousness deliver to us… faith? 9. On this matter – it is very difficult to understand but think deeply with me as I read from John Gill. a. [Slide 20] “…righteousness is before faith, or otherwise faith could not come by it; and, moreover, is the cause and reason of it; faith has no causal influence upon righteousness, but righteousness has upon faith: the reason why a man has a justifying righteousness is not because he has faith; but the reason why he has faith given him is because he has a justifying righteousness provided for him, and imputed to him.” b. What is John Gill saying? c. Some weeks ago we discussed that when God justifies us, declares us righteous, though we be simultaneously sinner but declared righteous, this is an act that God does alone and it is based upon nothing we have done or will do. He simply does it. d. My friends here is that teaching in black and white. The faith that has fallen in our laps. The illumination of Christ and our binding ourselves to Him comes through God applying Christ's righteousness to us. e. Like a rope fastened to a man dangling off a cliff. Faith is only given after it has been anchored to something solid. Further, faith is only as good as the thing to which it is anchored. And so certainly we believe that we are declared to be righteous by trusting in Christ alone. This is true. But simultaneously we must also believe that without Christ's righteousness imputed to us, we would have no ability to believe. f. Once again, the scriptures consistently emphasize, by the word faith, not our action or exertion in it, but rather the object of it. In other words our expressing faith is not the mechanism that secures our declared righteousness. Rather it is the fruit and proof that we have been declared righteous. g. Is this not then… a precious faith. h. A faith… f. [Slide 21] Just as precious as ours. i. The shift to a plural pronoun here has us wondering who is “us” and who is “you.” Peter compares the gifted faith of apostles to the gifted faith of his audience and shows that there is no difference. It is of equal quality, value, and worth. ii. Just as Simeon Peter was granted the favorable honor of the status of slave… iii. So, we are bound to Christ and found to have this granted or given faith. iv. Peter's faith is the same as ours… unearned, unsought, but sure and stable in the person and work of Christ. v. This comes pretty heavy on the God sovereignty side. If you are waiting for the human responsibility side you'll have to wait until next week – but let me just toss this in there to give you hope or clarity. Yes – humans still have a responsibility to believe and keep on believing. vi. But we must not let that human responsibility remove or take away anything from what we've seen today. vii. God applies the righteousness of Christ to a person and in so doing shakes the tree to drop faith in the lap of those to whom Christ's righteousness is applied. So much so that they immediately grab hold of the Righteous One. For, indeed, as God has just revealed to them…they must. He is their only hope. g. [Slide 22] Passage Truth: So, Peter wants to remind his readers that their faith is a gift given by God through Christ's imputed righteousness to them. It is the same quality and the same essence of the faith the apostles received. h. [Slide 23] Passage Application: There is no stated application to his audience as of yet. Nevertheless, perhaps the assurance of the quality of their gifted faith is to encourage them and bolster their resolve to cling to it all the more and even to, as he'll get to soon, build upon it. i. [Slide 24] Broader Biblical Truth: Zooming out to the rest of scripture it is clear that since natural man is described as a “child of wrath” “sons of disobedience” “of our Father the devil” of whom “none are righteous” and “none seek after God” is becomes abundantly clear that as Paul tells us, we need an alien righteousness. We need someone to take our place. The Old Testament is full of examples of men and women that were not good enough. They couldn't follow God's law well enough. Even the best of them could not measure up to God's desire. Truly in Adam, all men are hopelessly lost and unable to please God. But as our new representative, as the ideal human, Jesus through keeping the whole law yet suffering as though He violated it in every point as we have, has both exchanged our infinite sin debt for His infinite righteous merit. We are declared to be righteous on His account and in this God gifts to us both truth and trust in His righteousness alone. Why alone? For we have no righteousness of our own to bring. j. [Slide 25] Broader Biblical Application: And in application we ought to cling to the preciousness of this faith. It is precious because it is a gift. But not just a gift, a gift from God. But not just a gift from God, but a gift from God secured in the active and passive righteousness of Jesus our God and Savior. Who took our place, bore our shame, suffered our wrath, and gave us His glory. That is the faith we have received. To Him be glory and power forever. Amen? And it is on this faith that we must continue to build for Him and His glory. Transition: [Slide 26(blank)] So God has given the righteousness of Christ to us and by this has dropped truth and trust in our laps. Because of this we ought to cling to and build on that faith. But what else has God given us to help us build upon our faith? II.) Grace and peace are given by God, so we must build upon the faith we've received a. [Slide 27] 2 – May grace and peace be lavished on you i. Here are those theologically rich words again. ii. What beauty is in the word grace. I hope that if you have been with us for any length of time that you have seen a renewed and deepened understanding of this word. iii. Not simply God's unearned favor. Not a bad definition. But it is just lacking. It is God's power, God's passion. God's push, God's pull to get us where He wants us. iv. And peace. Not peace from problems, not peace from persecution, not peace from trials or tribulations… but first peace with God. Peace with a holy God who looks at us as sons and daughters. And second as peace in our souls. Peace and contentment. Resting in Him and His grace. v. And may both of these be lavished. May they be poured over. May you be baptized in them. This is Peter's wish. vi. What a prayer. vii. What will they need grace and peace for? What are they going to be doing? b. [Slide 28] As you grow in the rich knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord! i. Knowledge is a big concept in II Peter. Specifically, the knowledge of God. ii. He prays that God's grace and peace would be multiplied to them. The text does not actually say “as you grow” it simply says “in the knowledge of God…” But seeing that this is the purpose of grace and peace being multiplied, it follows that it is as we grow in that knowledge. iii. But what do we mean by knowledge? iv. Peter uses this term and another that are both translated knowledge, to convey a spiritual insight that manifests in outward change. v. This knowledge translates into personal relational knowledge that transforms how we live. vi. [Slide 29] Indeed, in Ephesians 4, the work of the ministry is the edification of the body of Christ. And the goal of that edification is to grow each other in the knowledge of Christ so that we become like Him. vii. [Slide 30] My friends – the aim of the church – the aim of God's people – is to know God, Christ, and the Spirit. And it requires your head, your heart, and your hands. 1. Head: Exploring God. You must grow in your understanding and knowledge of God. a. First, you must know the gospel. You must know what the bible teaches about how God saves His people from their sin. b. In many ways the gospel is very simple, but in other ways the gospel is quite complex. Know the gospel in all its complexities. If you want to put in theological terms – your soteriology ought to be pages not paragraphs. c. But you cannot rest even on this knowledge of the gospel, but rather you must build upon it. d. To not love the study of God is to not love God's primary purpose for His people. To grow in knowledge of Him. e. Your head must expand. And by this I don't necessarily mean knowing all the theological jargon and what it means… but I do NECESSARILY mean the deep thoughts of all God has revealed about Himself through Christ. f. In our culture we are obsessed with knowing the answers, but many times it is the right questions that allude us. g. Too often we either google search the answer to find “what does the bible say about…” h. Or we confine ourselves to a specific book in the bible without thinking about the rest of what God has revealed to us. i. Rather than thinking deeply about the question of all that God is, we simply want someone to tell us what to think about who God is. j. God didn't write a systematic theology for us. He spoke through humans inspired to convey truth in their time about Himself and about themselves. But He did so in their time and in ways they could comprehend. But in these last days He has spoken to us through His Son. k. This however, does not prove that systematizing God's word is wrong. In fact, it proves that it is exactly what we must do if we are to truly know Him. l. It is exactly what Jesus did with the 12 disciples on the road to Emmaus. He showed them how He was revealed in the Scriptures. m. So, to know God's grace – you must scour Genesis 1 all the way to Revelation 22. n. Can you find His grace in Genesis 1? Oh yes. Abundant grace. But you can't claim to understand it until you have seen it on every page and in every chapter. And even then – you have only scratched the surface! o. To know His love. Same thing. To know His mercy, justice, wrath, holiness – all of these cannot be found in one book nor one internet search. To know God- you must seek Him as He has revealed Himself in this book. p. And let me repeat myself ad nauseum. Stop doing google searches to find out what to believe about God… Stop doing google searches for all the ways to prove _______ doctrine wrong. You know what is great and terrible about google? You can find answers to support whatever you want to support. Or destroy whatever you want to destroy. But if you spent all your effort, rather than google searching, instead seeking the God of the universe in the only way He has given us to know Him… perhaps then you might know God. q. My friends, if you do not desire to know God deeper and deeper still… than it is difficult to be certain that you have truly been regenerated. 2. Heart: But it is not enough to know Him. No, you must also delight in Him. a. The knowledge of God must sink deep into your soul. Beyond your head. b. The truth of His person must take hold of you – gripping you to your very core. c. So that when you discover what God's grace is – you are gripped by its power. When you know the love of God you are struck by its faithfulness. When you deepen in your understanding His holiness, you are cut to the heart, loathing every evil desire in you and pant after His cleansing. d. It is not enough to know who God is. You must be radically and spiritually turned forever because of what you have been shown! e. Can you truly know His holiness and walk away unaffected? Can your knowledge of His love be deep if you are not overwhelmed with its sweetness? Can you truly know grace without it bringing your heart to life? Without it turning its stony crags into flesh? f. True knowledge of God leads to soul level affections. g. To the extent that God becomes your one delight. 3. Hands: But it is not enough to know Him and delight in Him. For Jesus says that if you love me, you will keep my commandments. a. To know Him and delight in Him is also to be changed by Him. b. To know His grace is to act in obedience with it. c. To know His glory is to rise up and sing praise. d. To know His love is to display it to others whom He loves. e. To know His Holiness is to violently and expeditiously kill off your sin without mercy and without regret. 4. To know Him is to Love Him. To Love Him is to Obey Him. To Obey Him is to glorify Him. To glorify Him is to make His name known. 5. Head. Heart. Hands. This is what it means to know God. c. [Slide 31] Passage Truth: Peter hopes for his audience that the precious gifted faith that they have, If they truly have it, will be built on by grace and peace. d. [Slide 32] Passage Application: And so, they must grow in the knowledge of God. The full knowledge. The rich knowledge. They must know God more with the grace and peace He provides. e. [Slide 33] Broader Biblical Truth: We know from Scripture that although God does give grace and peace to the unbelieving world, it is grace with a small g. Peace with a small p. It is merely an expression of His character. He, not being like any other god, does not reign down fire and brimstone every time the world has earned it. If so, the world would have been destroyed long before Noah. Instead, God is a God of kindness. He offers grace to many. But to His elect. To those He loves, He gives greater grace. He has made a way for peace with them. He has lavished grace and peace on them and continues to do so. Indeed, that is why an assurance of a Christian is their gradual and growing righteousness before God. Because it proves that His Spirit is in them and working. So, if we truly have this gift of faith which God has given to us through the imputed righteousness of Christ, we will also have grace and peace lavished on us in order to build on our faith. f. [Slide 34] Broader Biblical Application: Because we have been abundantly provided for with grace and peace – because God is faithful to those He loves – We can seek to grow in our knowledge of God the Father, Christ Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. And we must know Him not only with our heads, not only with our hearts, but with our hands too. Conclusion: [Slide 35(end)] In what has already been a doctrinally rich and applicationally heavy sermon, I won't linger in concluding it. Let me simply wrap it all together in a tight bow. God will get glory from His people for what He has done in their lives. He has, through Christ's righteousness, declared sinners righteous, giving them spiritual sight to see the truth and to anchor themselves into it. He has given grace and peace and continues to lavish them upon His people. He has revealed Himself through many ages, through many people, Kings, prophets, shepherds, and in these last days God the Son. He has given us all we need and abundantly more than we could ever ask or seek awaits us in His coming Kingdom. Now… doesn't that sound like a God worth knowing? Doesn't that sound like a God worth exploring? Doesn't that sound like a God worth delighting in? Doesn't that sound like a God worth obeying? The chief end of all men is to bring glory to God. And God is glorified by all men's ends – in the fire of judgment or in the light and life made possible by grace. So, if you are an inheritor of such grace… tell me… what is more worthy of your time, energy, money, thoughts, feelings, opinions, words, letters, emails, facebook posts, text messages, goings, doings, givings, teachings, lovings – Your very soul, heart, mind, and strength – your head your heart and your hands – Who, what, is more worthy to receive all of these… than our God? May He receive the glory He is due from us. Amen.

Dr Bill is taking us on an informative and provocative journey through the Sermon on the Mount. It is the capstone of the entire gospel message of Jesus. If we don't understand what Jesus is saying and means to say, it will affect our experience of Him and His Spirit. We think that your life will be changed as you wrestle with us on this path.About it, Frederick Bruner writes, “I think something actually happens to listening people when Jesus' Beatitudes are passed on to them…The Beatitudes are concentrated Gospel…The person for whom the experience of impoverishment is a spiritual crisis, who groans in his or her spirit under the poverty, who is on the way down and who cries out—to this person Jesus announces, “Look up! I am here, taking your part, and the Kingdom I bring is especially for you!” (160)The Sermon on the Mount is the core foundation for all the rest of Jesus' gospel. The Beatitudes (the Blessed Bes) are the cornerstone for the entire Sermon on the Mount, and the first beatitude (5:3) is the pinnacle of it all. Welcome to the Sermon on the Mount.

GOD FILLS THE GAPS Christ  fills the gaps.  That's what Paul says.  In vs 10 Paul says, Night and day we pray earnestly for you, asking God to let us see you again to fill the gaps in your faith.  (I Thess 3:10 NLT) This is the walk of discipleship, to recognize that God has filled what was absent and lacking. So much of our life, prior to walking with God, gets lost in the the gaps, in the lie of God's absence and seperation. The lie creates all kinds of issues and problems, divisions, addictions and neurosis you name it. But our discipleship is about God filling us in those places we thought would forever be empty.  The gaps can be filled. The place of absence can be filled.  Those unfinished areas in our life can be filled.  But filling is a process, and faith is a walk, and the destination is Him. The one who will fill all things with himself.  Yesterday we celebrated the day of ascension. The day that Jesus ascended in his resurrected human body to sit at the side of his father, having accomplished and created for us our completed life, our full life in him. Today we can walk with him, and allow the spirit to open our eyes even more to the fullness that is our in Christ.  he destination  And on top of that, we tend to leak. Christian, you are now new in Him and filled with Him.  If you are in Christ, than his Spirit lives in you.  But that doesn't mean that you won't struggle.  Paul actually says that we are destined for troubles.  Jesus says so too. God fills all things everywhere with himself.  I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. (Jn 16:33 NLT) In this life you will have trouble.  But God is here to meet us in those troubles and to fill us, even in the midst of them, enabling us to remain strong in faith. He is able to fill the gaps in our love for one another. And he is able to strengthen our hearts with the realization that we are blameless and holy before him. Be encouraged today, that God fills you through His Spirit. This can become a deeper reality in your life and you can live with greater joy and greater strength, knowing that God fills the gaps.  You  were made to be filled.  And you can receive that gift even now, even if you're  going through troubles.   Let God fill the gaps so that you might learn to love and live deeper in the reality of Christ in you.

Nuclear Exchange with Russia?  (Audio) David Eells - 5/8/22   Ready to Begin: "I Come to Avenge and Fulfill All"Excerpt from Dumitru Duduman's PropheciesNovember 21, 1994 "Awaken, my people", says the voice of the Lord. "Be passive no longer. Draw closer today more than ever, for the day of my vengeance is ready to begin". "I will shake the earth from its foundation (earthquakes?), and I will require punishment of all those that say they do my will, yet through what they do, they blaspheme my name. I will punish prophets, preachers, singers, and all those that do a work yet do it for their own glory. I will judge and punish the entire world. Only those that today sit at my feet in meekness, weeping, and worshiping me, asking for my help, will rejoice in the protection of the arm of the Lord on that day. "Forsake every evil thought, all the empty words, all covetousness, pride, and hypocrisy, because in whatever you are doing, it is not you doing it, but I, the Lord. Where are my clean gifts that I have poured among you: speaking in tongues, prophecy, and other gifts that were given unto you? Where is my power?" says the Lord. "Change your hearts, my people, today, for the days are numbered until I will begin to avenge. My eye sees in the light as well as in the darkness, my people. There is nowhere you can hide from the eye of God. Liars, imposters, those that are covetous, and all those that have only a form of Godliness, but deny the power of God, I will judge them, and then I will judge the whole world. I will shake it from its foundations. In many places there will be massacres. Those that today worship me with faithfulness will be the only ones protected on that day. The horn is ready to sound for the start of the battle. The days are numbered until you will hear the sound, when the armies of heaven will begin the battle against the inhabitants of earth. No army in the world will be able to stand against the armies of heaven, and the army of hell will not be able to raise its head against the Lord's army. Yet those that worshiped me in spirit and in truth I will protect, for I am God. Everything you see around you will be no more. Everything will be destroyed and burn in fire. Do not be passive. Draw close to me, for I come to avenge and fulfill all that was said in the past.", says the Lord. An Angry Bear AwakensExcerpt from Dumitru Duduman's PropheciesApril 1997 I knelt by my bed to pray, as I do every night before going to sleep. After finishing my prayer, I opened my eyes, but I was no longer in my room. Instead, I found myself in a forest. I looked around, and to my right I saw a man dressed in white who pointed his finger and said, "See and remember". It took me a while to find what he was pointing at. It was a small bear who seemed half dead lying on the ground. As I continued to watch this bear, it began to breathe deeper. With every passing minute it seemed to revive itself, and, as I watched, it also became angrier. It then began to grow. Soon it was larger than the forest floor, and as it grew larger, it continued to become angrier. It then began to paw the ground, so that when its paw would hit the ground, the earth would shudder. The bear continued to devastate all that stood in its path until it came upon some men with sticks trying to fend it off. (Don't pay any attention to the lies, they have won this war in Ukraine but the DS needs a bigger war that hurts the US. They have taken down the Nazi's, the bio-labs, the tunnels and dungeons with the captive children, and the evidence of DS crimes, etc.)  By this time the bear had grown so large that it simply crushed the men underfoot and continued its rampage. I was stunned by what I saw and asked the man standing beside me, "What does this mean?" "At first they thought the great bear was dead,”  the man said. (If you listen to MSM.) "As it will begin to stir once again, they will consider it harmless. Suddenly, it will grow strong once more with purpose and violence. (They have made tremendous advances in weaponry.) God will blind the eyes of those that continue to trample on the sacrifice of Christ's blood, until the day the bear will strike swiftly. This day will catch them unprepared, and it will be just as you saw". The man then said, "Tell my people the days are numbered and the sentence has been passed. If they will seek My face and walk in righteousness before Me, I will open their eyes that they may see the danger approach. If they only look to the approaching danger, they, too, will be caught up and trampled underfoot. Only in righteousness will they find safety". Suddenly, I was once again by myself in my room, on my knees, with sweat covering my face.   Russian Nuclear Exchange with U.S. Garrett Crawford - 4/29/22   I dreamed that everyone was stocking up on food at a grocery store late at night. (Insiders are warning to have at least 3 to 6 months of food stored up. As far as believers go, we know that God shall supply our every need according to His riches in Glory.) I saw many people rushing at the last minute to get prepared. There was a general sense of uncertainty in the air. Many who had been expecting an event to happen were already prepared. (And it may be that these will have to help those around them and miracles will happen.) For some reason Sylvester Stallone was in the dream and he was getting prepared too, but he had lost heart and his courage had left him. He was not mentally or spiritually prepared. (Sylvester plays the part of a strong warrior, so to speak, but it appears even they will lose heart through the things coming.)  I told him he could stay with me as I had been preparing for this for sometime. (The most important way to prepare is spiritually for the Word says, “Righteousness delivereth from death.”)  As we were leaving the store, I noticed many people's cars had been stolen from the parking lot while they were buying supplies. People came out to find their cars were gone, they were in disbelief. Sylvester and I thought that my car had been stolen too but we eventually found it. (Having their cars stolen out of the parking lot represents that rest and peace will be taken from the lives of many.) We were somewhere talking and he could not understand why I was happy and not scared. He felt he had so much more to live for on this Earth and he was upset that it was all being taken from him. (Many lives will be turned upside down in order to get their attention and cause them to seek the Lord once He has destroyed all their worldly idols.) I, on the other hand, had no love for the world and the things in it, I could literally feel nothing because this Earth had no hold on me. I felt freer than any man alive. (John 12:25 He that loveth his life loseth it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.) Around this time, I had a flashback to the beginning of the day. It was light outside and the sun was out. I was walking through the parking lot of the grocery store and the Word of Lord came to me saying, "At this time the wise will shine brighter than the sun and will instruct many.”  (The Man-child reformers will be anointed with the wisdom of Jesus and will instruct many in the way of righteousness.) The next thing I knew, the scene changed and I was at my dad's house in Bethel. (Representing the Father's "House of Bread”. Those feeding on the Bread from Heaven, Jesus Christ, the Word of the Lord, will be in the rest.) I was all alone with my dogs and cat. (The elect among all the factious dogs and those who were in rebellion to God and His Word will return to the Father's house.) I remember watching the war in Ukraine taking place over my dad's house, like an open vision, but it was something tangible that I was actually experiencing. (Like the death angel that passed over the houses of the Israelites, this “war” and its fall-out will pass over the elect of God.)  I saw that America had been assisting Ukraine. I even saw America launching attacks to aid Ukraine, but there was a grave mistake made and an American missile had been launched accidentally and it hit a Russian target. (Will this be accidental or on purpose? The D.S. has been provoking the nuclear option and would love to escalate this conflict to continue to deflect away from the declass of all their evil crimes that are coming to light and to depopulate and to try to derail the 2022 midterm elections so that they can hold on to power. Also it was admitted that the U.S. helped the Ukrainians sink the Russian flagship Moskva and it was an American missile. No one would admit this unless they wanted the Russians to retaliate.) This ‘accident' caused the whole world to stop. Everyone wondered what Russia would do, but no one expected that Russia would retaliate against America. (Putin has come out publicly and warned that any attack on Russia by NATO or U.S. and Western forces during this Ukraine conflict would be reciprocated, presumably against the D.S.) Then I watched what appeared to be a large missile silo open and a projectile came out and was fired at America. The missile hit America inside her borders and everyone was in a state of shock. No one actually believed Russia would retaliate but they did and with fierce wrath. (Putin and Russia has been fighting the D.S. and they would know who this missile is coming from and would pick their targets.) The weapon they used made 7 waves of fire blast throughout America like fiery shockwaves. The sound of the weapon was like a siren. Every blast was accompanied by the most ominous siren sound; seven blasts and seven sirens. (This seems to be a multiple warhead missile. Also could seven blasts announce the approach of the seven trumps of the Tribulation?)  After the last blast I looked outside and America was on fire. (I asked and he said, "It could have been multiple warheads".) It was just 1 missile launch from each side and after Russia struck with their missile they did not continue. It was like an eye for an eye. I felt in the dream that America was playing a dangerous game with Russia that backfired.) (Even though the military has moved interceptor missiles to the coast in the night, they evidently didn't intercept this. Their missiles have multiple warheads that spread out to different areas and are considered by many to be unstoppable due to its evasive maneuvers.) Everyone in America was in complete disbelief. I heard a man say, "I can't believe they did it, I can't believe they actually attacked us!”. After the blasts I surveyed the damage and my dad's house was still standing. Both my dogs were in the house with me and survived. I opened the front door (Jesus) and my cat was there. (Many of the rebellious who are God's elect will return to the Father's House of Bread.) He had survived the carnage even though he had been outside of the house. Then I woke up. Let's pray and ask mercy of the Lord on this.   Rev 6:2  And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer. 3 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come. 4  And another horse came forth, a red horse: and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.   CONFIRMED: "U.S. and Allies Preparing for Russian Use of Nuclear Weapons" Hal Turner - 4/30/22 Link to Article   Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland today publicly stated "If Moscow uses nuclear weapons, it will never recover from the consequences." She then went on to confirm: "Since the beginning of this conflict, we have already understood that the threats posed by Putin must be taken seriously. That's why the U.S. and our allies are preparing for this development," Nuland said.  These astonishing remarks by the U.S. Undersecretary of State come just one day after the top TV New Network in the Russian Federation, a network called Rossiya-1, broadcast to the entire nation of Russia the map shown in the link above.  The map shows that a single Russian "SARMAT" Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, when launched from Kaliningrad, would vaporize Berlin, Germany in 106 seconds, Paris, France in 200 seconds, and London, England, in 202 seconds after launch!   All three cities would be hit from a single Russian SARMAT missile launch!! From launch to impact, even the most distant city, London, would only have about 3 1/2 MINUTES of radar warning . . . not even enough time to ask the Prime Minister for permission to shoot back, and certainly not enough time to warn the general public even to take shelter. The Populations of those cities are as follows: Berlin, Germany: 3.645 million (2019) Paris, France: 2.161 million (2019) London, England: 8.982 million (2019) Almost no one in any of those cities would survive. The initial multi-blast shockwaves (~30,000 P.S.I.) and thermal radiation (the heat from the bright, white, flash) would vaporize everything within 1.5 miles (2.4km) of each blast. Absolutely nothing would survive.    USA / NATO Gearing up for Counterattack Against Russian Forces in July or August,  with High Risk of Escalated Retaliatory Strikes by Russia  Monday, May 02, 2022 by: Mike Adams   (Natural News) Based on facts that have now been made public, it is clear that the USA and NATO are gearing up for a massive military counterattack against Russian forces in Ukraine. Based on the idea that it takes a few months to build up logistics, hardware and personnel, the likely timeline for this counterattack appears to be around the July / August time frame. Keep in mind that the overarching context of all this is the plan to cancel the 2022 mid-terms by placing America into a world war before November, accompanied by a domestic police state / martial law response that now includes an actual Ministry of Truth run by Homeland Security (DHS). (An obvious communist attack on free speech and the constitution.) Some of the information supporting the coming counterattack includes the recent revelation that military pilot cadets from Ukraine were secretly moved to the United States in March in order to undergo intensive F-16 fighter pilot training in preparation for deployment against Russia. We understand that Ukrainian military teams are undergoing similar training in artillery and tank command as well. Seasoned military observers would correctly point out that you can't train an effective F-16 fighter pilot in just a few months (nor a tank commander, etc.), yet this only speaks to the desperation of USA / NATO / Ukrainian efforts to try to throw almost anything at the Russians in an effort to stop the seemingly unstoppable, grinding advancement of Russian forces across southern Ukraine. (Reminds us of the men who went out with sticks against the bear.) In addition to the above, it's also clear that USA / NATO forces are planning to cobble together a false flag operation in Ukraine — likely involving chemical weapons (and/or nukes) — in order to trigger the internal justification to deploy US troops directly against Russian forces in Ukraine. Congressman Adam Kinzinger has introduced a “Ukraine War Resolution” that specifies this exact escalation plan, in fact. The timing of the chemical false flag will likely be sometime in June, allowing the US media to whip up outrage and anti-Russia hatred — as the media's primary job these days is to teach hatred and intolerance to the gullible sheeple — to the point where the American people are screaming for World War III. Falling in line with the engineered outrage, US Senators and House members will call for a declaration of war against Russia, and that will be echoed by the criminal cabal running the fake White House Oval Office sound stage from which fake president Biden declares whatever current state of confusion he is expressing on that particular day. By July or August, it seems, we will be in a full-blown World War III against Russia, with US troops and weapons deployed in Ukraine, facing off against the far better-equipped Russian forces which have very short supply lines back to Russia, compared to the extremely long supply lines from the USA to Western Ukraine (which involves crossing the Atlantic and all of Western Europe, then somehow navigating Ukraine's blown up railroads and destroyed bridges while under heavy fire from Russian air power and missiles). America will very likely attempt to strike infrastructure targets inside Russia As the counterattack against Russia gets under way, it is very likely that US and NATO forces will unleash attempted missile strikes, drone strikes or bombing runs targeting infrastructure installations in Russia. The primary objective will be to cut off Russia's domestic supply of fuel, steel, ammunition, etc. But this move would clearly cross the line in Russia's mind, forcing Russia to realize that this western war is an existential threat against the very survival of Russia as a nation. This realization is only exacerbated by admissions from US high-level Pentagon officials that they are deliberately trying to weaken Russia and destroy Russia's ability to ever wage war again. Thus, Russia will quickly reach the conclusion that it will need to escalate its retaliatory strikes to something more than mere cruise missiles and artillery. Although we can't read Putin's mind, it seems likely that he has already realized that sooner or later, he needs to take out the USA's supply chain in order to stop the flow of weapons (and military training) to Ukraine from the United States. (At the moment it appears that all the hardware reaching the Ukraine is being destroyed.) Interestingly, the USA is now threatening China with economic sanctions if China supplies weapons to Russia. So according to the USA, only Ukraine can be augmented with weapons, but never Russia. Why Russia will likely prefer an EMP retaliatory strike against the USA and NATO nations Russia has vastly superior ICBM systems such as the new SARMAT-2 missile with up to 15 MIRVs and hypersonic glide vehicle capability (HGV). This means Russia has the ability to launch a single ICBM that can achieve nuclear strikes on 15 U.S. cities all at once, with little to no risk of interdiction by US defensive forces. However, an open-air nuclear strike in the northern hemisphere would contaminate the entire hemisphere with radioactive fallout. From Russia's point of view, a “safer” option is to detonate a high-altitude EMP weapon that destroys the US power grid and plunges the United States into chaos and collapse. This sort of EMP strike would utterly disable America's military supply chain while achieving something on the order of 90% civilian casualties within 1-2 years, according to previous government analysis reports. Surely Russia knows that America's power grid is not yet hardened against EMP, and that America's financial system, food stamps, communications, fuel deliveries and nearly everything else depends on the power grid functioning. Thus, an EMP strike is the most efficient way for Russia to disable America and possibly collapse the nation during a time of war. Once you realize this, you also realize that EMP weapons might also be used against NATO nations such as the United Kingdom. An EMP strike against London — or Paris, or Berlin — would plunge the entire nation into darkness and collapse. Thus, we believe that EMP weapons will be the first strike weapon preferred by Russia in retaliation against NATO and US forces striking infrastructure targets inside Russia (should that occur). We pray this never takes place, but it looks like Biden and his insane handlers are deliberately pushing the United States into this scenario... (Or maybe it's supposed to look like this in a fake WW3 scenario. Remember I have said that the Alliance plans a fake WW3 but the DS wants to turn it into a real WW3 and they are professional at this.) (In the original article here was a speculative timeline of the escalation of a real war. The bad thing about time lines and speculation is that when one domino falls the rest are all fallen.)  Remember: The (DS?) Pentagon is run by generals who hate the American flag and everything America stands for. Do you think the forces they control are going to be ready to fight for America and win World War III? Not by a long shot. The lib-tards all hate America and want to see it fail. Say what you want about Putin, but Putin doesn't hate Russia. He's not trying to dismantle the Russian culture. And he's not a sissy pants soy boy, either. Unlike Biden, Putin is a cognitive genius, and he is right now out-maneuvering the incompetent, almost mentally retarded US “President” and his entire regime of America-hating lunatics and sociopaths.   The Significance of the Number 68 Sent by Deb Horton on 4/19/22 Excerpt from What Does it Mean: More and more scholars estimate that the possibility of the outbreak of World War III is increasing, and have even concluded that this could lead to a nuclear war.  The situation is moving in the direction of global disaster.  Putin cannot tolerate failure, and Biden is unwilling to give up, which could compel Russia to use nuclear weapons. There's a grim mathematical problem popular in cyberspace: In American rendering, the sum of every two digits of the starting dates of World War I (07/28/1914), World War II (09/01/1939) and the Russia-Ukraine conflict (02/24/2022) are the same. World War I: 7+28+1914=1949 and 19+49=68 World War II: 9+1+1939=1949 and 19+49=68 Russia-Ukraine Conflict: 2+24+2022= 2048 and 20+48=68  (Since WW1 and WW2 adds up to 68 and then Russia/Ukraine war adds up to 68 could this means that this is the beginning of WW3?) This is just a great coincidence, but it serves as a reminder to compare the dangerous evolution of the Russian-Ukraine conflict with the two worst wars in human history. (There are no coincidences with a sovereign God.) Looking back, tragedies often come from five sources: War, famine, economic crisis, pandemic, and climate disaster. In spring 2022, people didn't expect that they would be experiencing these five aspects in an unprecedented convergence. (The world may be on the eve of its most dangerous moment.) Psalm 68 begins "Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered; Let them also that hate him flee before him." (At this particular time 5/5/22, the Russians have pretty well conquered Ukraine. They have destroyed the weapons that the D.S. had sent to defend Ukraine. There isn't much left of the ground war.  A loose nuke could come from a desperate D.S. hitting Russia to provoke the Russians into WW3…) (Operation Disclosure note: Wed. May 4 - Orange Man (President Trump): Russia wanted (the Russia/Ukraine War) to finish by May 6. Well 2 days ahead. May the Fourth [a play on words] (Force be with you). Same Day Nazi's in WW2 Surrendered. We are on a Loop. [meaning: History repeats] White Hats are in control. (We hope so)) Bill's Dream below of multiple Nuke strikes on America could be a confirmation of Garretts revelation above. Bill's nuke dream could be about what cities could be retaliated upon.  If Russia is hit, Putin knows the average American is not his enemy, the DS has always been his enemy. When he retaliates I believe it would be against the sin cities which are also the crime strongholds, DS strongholds, Democratic Strongholds. Thats why we saw in Bills dream below them getting nuked. I asked the Lord should we tell God's people to get out of these cities and got a YES. Here is a teaching we gave on this years ago: Flee the Sin Cities? (1)   Flee the Sin Cities? (2)   Bride Protected as the Wicked are Nuked Bill Steenland - 4/23/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was in my kitchen preparing dinner. (Representing the preparation of the spiritual food to feed God's elect.) I was suddenly translated to a place in the mountains. (This represents the choosing of the Bride by bringing Her to Mt. Zion which is a place of safety from the Beast?) Although I was incredibly surprised about the miracle, I knew why the Lord had done it. I had a horrible feeling and immediately started searching the skies. I said to myself, “Oh my God! This is it and it must have started!”  There was a light orange flash way way off in the distance. (The people to be judged will be spiritually far from Zion and the presence of God.)  I saw the top of a mushroom cloud. The Lord was letting me know nuclear weapons were going off in a distance that I couldn't physically see. (I asked if we should pray this down by faith and got a "NO.” When I forwarded this dream to Eve, she cast lots asking the Lord if we can pray this down? And she received 3 Tails for “NO”. Father has changed His mind before through repentance and a cry for mercy. Eze 3:21  Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning; and thou hast delivered thy soul. I asked the Lord, “Are we going to have a nuclear war? And got a “NO.” In Garretts dream it was “one and done” meaning it was not a war but a single missile exchange with possibly multiple warheads. Has God planned to chasten the U.S. in spite of their silly thousand years of peace on a wicked nation?) I asked, "Is this the D.S. cities being destroyed?" And got “Yes”.)   As in a nuclear attack there will be desolation, waste, and astonishment as the Lord said in Eze 35:2-4  Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir (The leadership of the Edomites who are Esau's seed who persecuted and betrayed their brother Israel.), and prophesy against it, 3  and say unto it, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, O mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand against thee, and I will make thee a desolation and an astonishment.  4  I will lay thy cities [or congregations] waste, and thou shalt be desolate; and thou shalt know that I am Jehovah.)  Little mushroom clouds appeared in the background and stuck in the sky as if it was some computer program that pinned the location of the blasts in the distance. As I moved around the symbols would stay in their places. There were many many of these nukes going off.  I continued to walk up this hill to an abandoned house with no windows or doors. It was made of concrete and looked like the place the Lord was sending me to hide. (Representing the refuge that God has prepared for His people to be hidden in the Rock. Their freedom to come and go is unhindered by doors.) The house had a bunch of silver everywhere. (The Lord will supply for the financial and physical needs of His people in the times ahead. Some say ultimately silver will be more valuable than gold.) I thought I could barter using them, so I started to break them apart and put them in a backpack. It struck me odd that whoever was there previously didn't see the value in the silver. (Because escaping is overwhelmingly more important.) Then I looked out of the little concrete building and there was a massive food processing plant nearby. I remember almost laughing because the Lord had put me right next to a food processing plant. I thought, “Oh wow! That's that! Thank you God!” (Food and money will be plentiful among the Bride as the Lord spoke. Isa 61:5-8  And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vine-dressers.  6  But ye shall be named the priests of Jehovah; men shall call you the ministers of our God: ye shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.  7  Instead of your shame ye shall have double; and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be unto them.  8  For I, Jehovah, love justice, I hate robbery [the factions have stolen from their brethren] with iniquity; and I will give them their recompense in truth (God will re-pay), and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.) I asked, "Will this devastation come after the redistribution of wealth planned in the GCR ?” And received a “Yes.”  Eve asked for a confirming word for this and received, Psa.81:5 (in context 5-7) He appointed it in Joseph for a testimony, When he went out over the land of Egypt, Where I heard a language that I knew not. 6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: His hands were freed from the basket. 7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder; I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah As the dream changed I was still in the house but was talking to a woman dressed in camouflage. (The Bride is hidden in the "secret place of the Most High.") She was explaining to me where we were in the mountains. She told me the state the mountain range and the roadway. I can't remember what it was but I knew it was somewhat iconic, well known and popular for mountain travel. There was a Native American word she told me and I remember thinking, "I need to look that up and find the meaning." but I cannot remember the name. I knew more people were coming; some of them good and some of them bad. (Many will come and be saved in the revival.) Then I woke up.  Eve asked for a word by faith at random for Bill's dream and received: Eze.21:28-32  And thou, son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah concerning the children of Ammon, and concerning their reproach; and say thou, A sword, a sword is drawn, for the slaughter it is furbished, to cause it to devour, that it may be as lightning; (I asked is this representing a swift taking down of those who factioned against their own kinsman?  And got “Yes.” This could be so called Americans against Americans and so called Christians against their brothers.) 29 while they see for thee false visions, while they divine lies unto thee, to lay thee upon the necks of the wicked that are deadly wounded, whose day is come in the time of the iniquity of the end. 30 Cause it to return into its sheath. In the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy birth, will I judge thee. 31 And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee; I will blow upon thee with the fire of my wrath; and I will deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, skilfull to destroy. 32 Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I, Jehovah, have spoken it.    Five Major U.S. Cities Nuked Richard Swanson Author of the book Spare Your People In 1971, I saw, in a dream, limited nuclear war in America. (Or one missile with multiple warheads) I beheld two or three short successive orange-colored flashes of light off in the distance towards the north. These flashes, which produced a strobe-light effect, literally lit up the nighttime sky.  As they occurred I could briefly see the outline of some mountains from beyond which the flashes came.  The next morning - in the dream - as I was walking through a field of swamp grass, I heard a news report over a transistor radio which was attached to a corner pole of a lean-to. The news report said: "Washington, D.C., New York City, Chicago, Denver and San Francisco have been struck by thermonuclear warheads”. (D.S. strongholds) By the time the broadcast said "Denver" I was in the Spirit. I was standing beside Jesus. I then realized it was Jesus Who was giving the news report, and what I was hearing over the transistor radio was the Word of God. As He spoke, His words could be heard throughout eternity.  As Jesus said "Denver," He pointed there, and as He did, the Holy Spirit showed me, though it was not quite dawn, exactly where Denver was. It was still night in San Francisco, yet the Holy Spirit showed me where that city was too. I then looked back toward the East Coast. The sun had already risen there and through some cirrocumulus clouds, I could see the Florida area. I suddenly realized I was up in the heavens looking down.  I also knew that during this limited nuclear attack I would be in Florida, very close to the Alabama border. Several years later I discovered that this part of Florida is indeed swampland, just as in the dream God's Protection from Weapons of Mass Destruction David Eells There is a place of safety in Christ for our body as well as our soul. Observe the following verses: Psa.91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust. 3 For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover thee with his pinions, And under his wings shalt thou take refuge: His is a truth shield and a buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, And ten thousand at thy right hand; But it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And see the reward of the wicked. 9 For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent. 11 For he will give his angels charge over thee, To keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under foot. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble: I will deliver him, and honor him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, And show him my salvation. An examination of verses 1 and 9 will bring us to the conclusion that God is our Secret Place. Psa.91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty... 9 For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation;.  We must be "hidden with Christ in God”. 1 Jn 2:24 says "As for you, let that abide in you which ye heard from the beginning. If that which ye heard from the beginning abide in you, ye also shall abide in the Son, and in the Father". In other words we must believe what Jesus and the Apostles gave to us in the beginning, in order to be in the secret place .  The traditions of men will not save. Paul said in (2 Ti 4:18) The Lord will deliver me from every evil work.  He also said that Jesus bore the curse so that we would be blessed (Gal.3:13,14). He also said, we were delivered out of the power of darkness (Col.1:13). Do you believe it? Then in that point you are hidden in Christ. Also the walk of the rebellious will not save. 1 Joh 2:5,6 ...Hereby we know that we are in him: he that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk even as he walked. An important key to entering the secret place is seen here in Psa. 91:2  I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust.  Verse 9 says, For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation; (Notice! If we say he is our refuge, He becomes our habitation.)  Rom.10:10 says ,for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Confess is the Greek word homo-logeo, which means to "speak the same as". We must say what God says. To not say what God says is not to confess him before men. Mt.10:32-33 says ,Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. To deny what the Lord says before men is to not be justified before the Father in that point. Rom.3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified (accounted righteous) in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. You must be called righteous by God through your confession or you will not escape judgment. Notice! In Psa. 91 confession brought protection to the body. Here is a good example of this confession in a dream given to Anette Rich in February 1994: I did not want to get up, but the Spirit of the Lord would not let me stay in bed, and urged me to get up and write down this dream: There was an order given that everyone was to register. All people with degrees and knowledge had to declare these facts. We then had to be sure our homes were airtight around the doors and windows. Then we had to go rally at an open air stadium. There were many, many people. All of a sudden I started to say, "Make it short. Make it short". Others joined in and this saying became a throng. I needed to get out of there, and started to make comments such as, "I am God's child, the air is purified around me. The angels of the Lord are around me. The Blood of Jesus saves me."  I had other people around me and many behind me, some I knew, others I did not. Birds fell straight out of the sky, dead. People fell dead and many were getting weak as we marched straight on. I kept repeating the above sayings. Here and there someone said, "I can't do it anymore!" I kept walking and said, "That is not a worthy statement of a child of God! Repeat what I say"... and then I would repeat the above and other scriptures. I was urged from within to keep my eyes straight ahead and not upon death. I urged others to do the same. There was a white film over everything and it was coming down. It covered trees and was almost illuminative. It also felt like it was giving health, strength, and light, and helped us to walk ahead. I can think of several times in the past that I have been told by a parent that they could not come to the assembly because one or more or their children had measles, chicken pox, or mumps. I have told these parents to bring their children because no one in the assembly would catch the disease. I have never been disappointed after making a bold confession of faith in God! When one of my own 5 children caught one of these diseases, unrelated to the above instances, we would always rebuke it and command it to go in Jesus' name and it would. My children have never had more that a very light case of these diseases and most have never had them at all. We are promised protection from the deadly pestilence in Psa. 91:3,5,6 For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. The Hebrew word pestilence here means an epidemic disease. However in verse 10 the word plague which we would normally equate with pestilence is not at all restricted to an epidemic. The Hebrew word plague just means a blow, or to smite. Verse 10 says, "There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent". Notice in this verse that if we are in the Secret Place, we are not under the plagues or judgments of God.  This is witnessed also in Exo. 12:13  And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and there shall no plague be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. In this text the blood of the lamb (Jesus) delivers us from all plagues. The judgments that God brought upon Egypt were all called plagues in Exo 9:14, 11:1. There were conditions for this wonderful benefit. Notice verses 9,10  Eat not of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roast with fire; its head with its legs and with the inwards thereof. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. In other words we should partake of all of the lamb, who is Jesus, the Word. That includes all of His head, which is His mind, doctrine, and thinking. That includes all of His legs, which is His walk. For to be in Him we must walk as He walked (I Joh 2:3-6).  Heb 10:26 says  For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which shall devour the adversaries. You should see here that the sacrifice will not protect those walking in rebellion, only those in ignorance or failure. When David sinned with Bathsheba the Lord "put away his sin" when he repented "but the sword did not depart from his house". In other words the sacrifice would not protect him from the penalty of his sin. All of the Lamb also includes all of His inwards, which is the inner man of the heart who is filled with His Spirit in Eph. 3:16,17. To sum this up, for the Christian to receive deliverance from the plagues, he should believe in this doctrine, walk as a Biblical disciple, and receive God's Spirit, and not a religious Spirit as in 2 Co. 11:4. Another main condition, which is closely related to the last, is in Exo. 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, upon the houses wherein they shall eat it. First you should see that the Israelites were the ones who applied the blood. I Joh. 1:7 but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin. The light here is the word of God. So the blood cleanses us through walking (by partaking of the legs of the Lamb) in the Word. 2Co. 7:1 Having therefore these promises, (Word) beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. You see, the cleansing of the blood is applied through the Word. In John 2:1-11, Jesus did his first "sign". He had the servants (representing ministers) fill the 6 (Representing man's number) clay (Representing man's nature) pots (or vessels) with water (Representing the Word in Eph. 5:26). Then He turned it into wine (representing the blood of Jesus in Mat.26:27,28).  Why is it that many of God's people do not escape the plagues of this world? Rebellion and unbelief against the light of the Word! Hosea 4:6 says My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: (the Word) because thou hast rejected knowledge, (the Word) I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children. We are in a battle for our lives against the principalities and powers in Eph.6:12, and most of God's people refuse to put on the armor of God in verses 13-17. Notice the armor must be put on by you, by faith in the Word of God. Otherwise the forces of darkness will take you out!! The Devil is a good lawyer, he knows the Word, which gives him his rights. Know the Word so you can stand on your rights, the blood of the Lamb. Vision given to Dumitru Duduman that describes our rights in Christ and how the blood is applied: Oregon, May 7, 1993. It was getting dark. Then suddenly it turned pitch black! It was as if the whole world had gone dark at that moment (We are on the verge of this darkness-- Tribulation). All the people were in a frenzy! They became disoriented, and some were even screaming. After some time we heard the sound of an army approaching. Soon we saw them coming out of the black mist. All were dressed in black except one. That one seemed to be their leader. He was dressed in a red robe with a thick black belt over his waist. On his head he had a sign. As I looked, I saw that in his hand he held the same kind of sharp spear as everyone else in his army. "I am Lucifer!" he exclaimed. "I am the king of this world! I have come to make war against the Christians!”  It looked as though all the Christians were huddled together in one big group. Some began to cry when they heard this. Others began to tremble, while some just stood without saying anything. Lucifer continued to speak. "All of those that want to fight against my army and think they can be victorious, go to the right. Those that fear me, go to the left". Only about a quarter of the group stepped to the right. All the others went to the left. Then Lucifer ordered his army, "Destroy those on the right!" The army began to advance and quickly surrounded the Christians on the right. As they began to close in on us, a powerful light appeared and encircled us. Then an angel of the Lord spoke. "Take out your swords and fight. Defend yourselves and be victorious over the enemy". "What swords?" a man in the group asked. "The Word of the Lord is your sword", the angel answered. When we understood what the angel meant, we began to quote verses from the Bible.  Then suddenly as if we were one voice, we began to sing a song. Our voices thundered so loudly that the dark army began to retreat in fear. They did not have the courage to come against us anymore.  Lucifer, filled with rage, turned to those on the left. "You who all of your life have been trying to please two masters, because you could not stand against me, I have the power to destroy you". He then ordered his army to attack. It was a total massacre. The ones on the left could not defend themselves. One by one they all fell. This killing seemed to go on for a long time. After a while we could actually smell the stench of the dead. Someone asked, "Why could they not be protected also?"  The angel answered, "Because all of their lives they have been lukewarm. Because of their hypocrisy the true church has been blasphemed. They have brought disrespect to the Word of God. They were not clean”.  As we continued to look, we saw the sun coming over the horizon. The black clouds began to break up. Then they disappeared. Only one cloud was left, on which Lucifer and his army stood. Lucifer looked at me shaking his fists and said, "I will destroy you even if I have to throw my spear at you from here!" Then that cloud disappeared, too. As I looked around, I began to see faces that I recognized among our group. I saw a pastor from Belflower, another from Indiana, one from Michigan, as well as many of my American friends. The first thought that came to my mind as I awoke was that this had been the last fight of the devil against the church. If we remain faithful, we will be victorious. Another condition is seen in Exo. 12:22,23 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side-posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 23 For Jehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Jehovah will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. As a Christian you should see here that you must abide in your house, which is Jesus, the Word. If you abide in Jesus, you abide in fruit and eternal life as in Joh 15:1-8, I Jn.5:11. The destroyer cannot come past the blood on the door posts to smite you. As you can see, all of these conditions are actually one. Walk by faith in the Lord as your Savior in all things and grow in the light of His Word to know your rights. The devil is a good lawyer, He knows his rights. If you add to or subtract from the Word with your own thinking, he can afflict you as said in Rev.22:18,19. Another condition is seen in Exo. 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. The unleavened bread here is purity in doctrine or the Word. Jesus said in Mat. 16:11 to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees (the religious leaders of today too). In verse 12 they understood the leaven was their teaching.  Also Paul exhorted us in I Co. 5:6-8 to keep the feast of unleavened bread by casting out the leaven of malice and wickedness. Here He said the unleavened bread was sincerity and truth. Back in Exo 12:15 we see that there should be no leaven in our house (or body) for seven days. The seventh day was the day of ceasing from our works to enter the rest. So keep the truth in your house until you cease from your works and rest in Christ or you will be "cut off" from Israel. The Lord spoke to me when I was writing an article for our website. He gave me a long list of miracles He was going to perform in order to save some of His people because He said, "they are not under the curse". One thing He said was that He was going to translate (not to heaven) some of His people right out of the middle of nuclear blasts in order to preserve them. I can assure you that these are not Christians in the secret place who do not believe this is their covenant right. Jesus said "be it unto you according to your faith" and "as you have believed so shall it be unto you". Remember, He could not do many mighty works because of their unbelief. Preserved Through a Nuke: Gaylene Wolmack I would like to share with you a quick vision the Lord gave me about a year ago. I was reading about the coming bombing of the U.S. and as I sat down in my rocker to look out my big picture window to reflect about this with the Lord, all of a sudden a laughter came forth from way down inside. I asked the Lord what was so funny about the U.S. being bombed. He then showed me a quick vision of Phoenix being bombed (I perceived it didn't matter what city) and in the midst of that there were people walking around just fine. I then saw the enemy watching via satellite and was horrified to see people walking around in the midst of what I perceived to be a nuclear bombing. The Lord is our High Tower and our Refuge and our Fortress! Jer 18:7,8 says "At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up and to break down and to destroy it; if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. This is also what we see in Joel 2:12,13. Gods people in America must repent. The nation exists only for our sake. At what time the people of God become bad for America and America becomes bad for the people of God there must be a separation. Egypt must fall and Israel must come out!  Gods people are in bondage to an evil Babylonish religious system that has more affinity for the world than the kingdom as in Rev 18:45. There must be judgment on the system to bring them out as in Jer 50:3-12. If there is no spiritual separation, which is sanctification or holiness, there must be physical separation by the judgment of the wicked. Without ten righteous in Sodom, it is doomed as in Gen 18:32. (Isa 26:9,10)...For when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. Let favor be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal wrongfully, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord. Favor given to the unrepentant destroys them.  Judgment is also God's mercy. Angels took Lot's family by the hand and led them out of Sodom. He "escaped" to a "little city" of refuge called Zoar.  (Heb 2:3) How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? (Luk 1:36) But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass... . (Rom 2:3) And reckonest thou this, o man, who judges them that practice such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? The "little city” Lot escaped to reminds me of the "little white church" that escaped the holocaust and the invading army in "Tremble Ye Women”?  Disciples of Christ who are living the crucified life will escape the coming judgment. One method God will use is to protect a few cities from the destroyer as Goshen was protected when Egypt was destroyed in Exo. 8:21-24.  The Flies here symbolize demons for Satan is lord of the flies in Exo.14:29,30 / 11:4-7 / 12:23.  Cities of refuge were provided to protect the manslayer, who killed someone "unwittingly" (not with their own knowledge or wisdom) from the "avenger of blood” in Num 35:11,12 / Josh 20 / Deu 19. The avenger of blood was usually a relative or close friend of the deceased. A disciple of Christ is one who by the wisdom of Christ puts to death his old man (manslayer), and is therefore not guilty. The avenger, the wicked, is a relative and friend of the old man. They are both born of flesh.  The avengers of this world hate and seek to put to death those who have put to death self. Satan and his army are coming to avenge the blood of the old man. (For Example: Pharaoh's army, Assyrian army, Mat 24:8-14, or Dumitru's dreams "The Black Bird" and "The Black Army") Spiritually speaking if you are caught outside the city of refuge the avenger of blood may put you to death (Num 35:26-28 / Ex 12:22 / Gen 19:21 / 2Kings 18:13 / 19:30-34 / Jn 15:4-6). After the death of the high priest in Num 35: 28, who is Christ, has been manifest in our life by the crucified life in 1Co 2:2 / Exo 12:5-9 / Php 3:10-15, we may go where God wills and be safe (Num 15:28 / Jn 7:30 / Lk 4:29,30 / Acts 12:11 / Psa 91). Some will not die for we have come to the end of the sixth day (Mat 16:28-17:2 For him who has ears).  The wicked in the U.S. are also manslayers for they have put to death their spiritual man. They are guilty and they will die for they did it wittingly (following their own wisdom). God is an avenger (Rom 12:19 / Exo 11:4 / 12:12,29) against those who don't walk in and out under the blood (Exo 12:7 - Deu 28:6,19 /1Jn 1:7) and eat all the flesh of the Lamb (Exo 12:8, Joh 1:29 6:53, Jesus is the word made flesh) (Exo 12:10 / 16:19,4 / Jn 6:32-35)  Though it is in the Word some do not accept divine healing and protection. 1 Pe 2:24 / Luk 10:19 Jesus said "be it unto you according to your faith".) Our faith must be in unleavened bread, which means according to the Word in teaching - Mat 16:6,11,12, in attitude - Luk 12:1, in actions -1 Co 5:6-8). To eat the unleavened bread is to consume the pure Word till it becomes a part of you as food does. The traditions of men have no power to bear the fruit of Christ (Mat 13:23). They add to, and take away from the word and are cursed (Rev 22:18,19).   Select LanguageAfrikaansAlbanianAmharicArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBengaliBosnianBulgarianCatalanCebuanoChichewaChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CorsicanCroatianCzechDanishDutchEsperantoEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchFrisianGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekGujaratiHaitian CreoleHausaHawaiianHebrewHindiHmongHungarianIcelandicIgboIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseJavaneseKannadaKazakhKhmerKinyarwandaKoreanKurdish (Kurmanji)KyrgyzLaoLatinLatvianLithuanianLuxembourgishMacedonianMalagasyMalayMalayalamMalteseMaoriMarathiMongolianMyanmar (Burmese)NepaliNorwegianOdia (Oriya)PashtoPersianPolishPortuguesePunjabiRomanianRussianSamoanScots GaelicSerbianSesothoShonaSindhiSinhalaSlovakSlovenianSomaliSpanishSundaneseSwahiliSwedishTajikTamilTatarTeluguThaiTurkishTurkmenUkrainianUrduUyghurUzbekVietnameseWelshXhosaYiddishYorubaZulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

Dr Bill is taking us on an informative and provocative journey through the Sermon on the Mount. It is the capstone of the entire gospel message of Jesus. If we don't understand what Jesus is saying and means to say, it will affect our experience of Him and His Spirit. We think that your life will be changed as you wrestle with us on this path.About it, Frederick Bruner writes, “I think something actually happens to listening people when Jesus' Beatitudes are passed on to them…The Beatitudes are concentrated Gospel…The person for whom the experience of impoverishment is a spiritual crisis, who groans in his or her spirit under the poverty, who is on the way down and who cries out—to this person Jesus announces, “Look up! I am here, taking your part, and the Kingdom I bring is especially for you!” (160)The Sermon on the Mount is the core foundation for all the rest of Jesus' gospel. The Beatitudes (the Blessed Bes) are the cornerstone for the entire Sermon on the Mount, and the first beatitude (5:3) is the pinnacle of it all. Welcome to the Sermon on the Mount.

 LIVE IN THE SPIRIT Our readings today are II Samuel 17, Psalm 71, and Matthew 26.  We are reading through the New Living Translation. The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.  (Mt 26:41) That's what Jesus tells Peter.  It's the Spirit of Christ that shapes the will, not my spirit, but Christ's Spirit, in me. The flesh cannot shape the will.  In fact, the flesh is a miserable failure when it comes to shaping our will.  The flesh can bluster and boast and hope all it wants.  But it cannot do the work of the Spirit. Only the spirit of Christ, in you, can do that.  The flesh will betray us every time.  We see it happen three times, for Peter.  This is what the will is capable of, apart from the spirit of Christ.  Three times he betrayed the Lord.  When it counted most, three times he denied knowing the Man.  But on the same night, three times, the Spirit of Christ laid down his will for another. Three times, on that same night, Jesus prayed, yet I want your will to be done, not mine. (Mt 26:39 NLT)  And he succeeded in molding his will to the will of his Father, in spite of the personal cost.   His willing Spirit, abiding in you, can do the same, for you.  Living by the power of Christ's Spirit, is the only way you can ever hope to live beyond yourself.  It won't happen in the power of the flesh,  by making grand declarations, trying hard, or being pious; all things Peter tried to do. No.  The only way to overcome the challenges that we face in this life, and become the person that you hope and long to be, is by Christ's Spirit, abiding in you.  It's only then that you will be able to lay your life down for someone other than yourself – and become the person that you desire to be. Jesus said, Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak! (Mt 26:41 NLT) Christ's Spirit is willing and able.  As you yield yourself to His will, His life can be more fully expressed in you, through His Spirit  Then you can begin to live the life that you've always wanted, and that is offered to you, even today.  Don't count on yourself, your will and your flesh.  Look to the Spirit of Christ living in you.  His Spirit is what will enable you to live His life, now.

Mercy,Grace,& Charity --(Works Of God!) Three of the most important words in the Bible! ----My Books: Amazon.com/Richard-A-Hardin/e/B09J2YHCVB rahardin.com- Books, Bio, Videos, Podcasts Email: richardahardin@yahoo.com Weekly: M-F,7-8AM; Sat-Sun,6-8AM (CST) ****Richard Hardin, POBox 45684, OKC, OK 73145. ***It may surprise you but Mercy, Grace, and Charity are not different kinds of Love! They are ways that God Who is Love comes to us and relates with us. For example: The Water that comes to your house from the main city water line is divided up when it gets to your house and goes many different paths; to the bath tub, commodes, to the kitchen sinks, to the refrigerator, to the hot water heater, etc. Now when you have a problem and want to identify it to the plumber you say the commode water won't flush, or the hot water heater is not heating, the bath water will not turn on, and identify to the plumber the area he will need to be concerned with. The water is the same in all these areas. Mercy, Grace and Charity are the same Love of God, but it is God (God is Love) working or moving in different ways to us or thru us but it is the same Spirit of God in all cases because we only have one God and one Spirit of God! ***MERCY is God's Love, God, Himself, coming to us, all mankind, reaching out to us and not requiring us to respond either for or against Him. A one-way love, to try to draw us to Him, guide us, or protect us even before or after we turn to Him like in Rom 2:4, "Or despisest thou the riches of His Goodness and forbearance and long suffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?" God is loving and blessing lost sinners and even Christians who have drifted away to draw them back to Him. This is God's unmerited favor to all of us when we need it. ****GRACE is ONLY the work or move of God's Spirit IN our hearts to create IN us the new heart at salvation, and live IN our hearts as as we grow in Grace as His children. The best description of the work of Grace that I have found in the bible is spoken by the Prophet Ezekiel in Eze 36:26-27, "A new heart also will I give you, and a new Spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. (27) And I will put My Spirit within you..." Paul says in Gal: 4:6-7, "And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba Father(Daddy Father). Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ." Any work or move of God -IN a person's heart only- is what is referred to or called Grace! Any work of God OUTSIDE our hearts to bless us, protect us, etc, is Mercy or Charity. Only the work of God, the Spirit, IN our hearts as a result of us inviting Him into our hearts is a work of Grace! God in any form does not come into our hearts uninvited by us! We have to be in total agreement with God and invite Him in to perform the work of Grace! ****Charity is a work or Word of God to us (Mercy) combined with our willingly inviting His Word (Grace) into our hearts (thru faith our acceptance of His Word) and allowing God to work in and through our hearts (Grace) as we work together with God in a work of Charity to others. ***Our ministers throughout Christianity do not understand Mercy, Grace and Charity or they would not have let the new versions remove Charity. That just shows how weak our "Christianity" is that the ministers throughout do not know the foundational building blocks or words. How can they understand the deeper concepts and beliefs of Scripture when they do not know the basics? CHARITY is when God moves in a person's heart (Grace) to allow His Spirit to pass through the Christian's heart to someone else. The joint effort of God working in & through a person and working together with God to reach out to others is the work of Charity which the devil hates so much he has had it removed from the new modern Bibles. Also, Charity is the same actions of God working with or in people which is described differently by the Apostle Paul who says "faith that worketh by love" which would be the same as a Christian accepting God's call (Word) into their heart, and obeying God's call to teach, preach, witness etc., and God going with the Christian in their heart to confirm His Words thru the Christian to the other person(s) and supply the needs.

You don't know, the pain that I've endured. And the bottom line is, that is true. But I serve the one who does and if you call yourself by Jesus beautiful name, he does know. All of our journeys are so unique and separate. And Jesus will heal and redeem and fill and lead every day of what you have endured and survived. Some journeys look like this. I came to know the truth of Jesus Christ at a very young age. I was nine years old and at nine years of age, I would look at my mom and think, oh my goodness, I want to grow up and be just like her and my dad was this wild child of the wilderness and he was a downhill ski instructor on a VA Okay, no and the Pacific Northwest and in in my mind, there was nothing that he couldn't do and in the poor cape and flew, and, and I grew up in the castle of their combined love. And it was during that season of time that my dad's best friend came to my little grade school and picked me up and put me in the backseat of his car. And he gathered my two older sisters, I'm the youngest of three girls. And he wouldn't speak to us. And I just had that choking feeling that something terrible has happened, and no one will tell me what it is, no one will speak. And we just started to drive in silence this very familiar road out to my grandparents house and, and I felt like I was choking. And I looked at my oldest sister who was sitting next to me. And without words, she was just streaming silent tears. And she knew too. And we drove down the long driveway to my grandparents home, and there were cars parked all over. And, and for the first time in my young life, I did not want to go into a home where I only ever felt love. Because I was afraid. And I'm taken by my shoulders and just pushed into this home. And it was full of all these breathing, wailing people and, and just to hear grief, rising and mixing in this room. And I was pushed into the arms of a woman that I recognized. I didn't know her name, and she was crying so hard. She could almost not speak. And she just kept going around and around and this nauseating cycle of I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I don't know what to say. I don't know what to say. I don't know how to tell you this. I'm so sorry. And I'm just leaning away from her thinking whatever you're about to say, I don't want to hear it. And finally she said, I don't know how to tell you that your dad has just murdered your mother. And he's taking his own life. And I'm sorry. I know. You're thinking you're a liar. My dad loves my mom, and he loves me, he would never do that lie er. And I just pushed off her chest and ran out the back door in this nine year olds effort to outrun the unthinkable and just ran and ran and ran until there was nothing left and and it wasn't even a far distance. And I remember I had been running through an orchard and the ground had been plowed. And I just fell down in the dirt. And I was inhaling dirt and gagging and choking and retching and screaming. And then I could hear what I thought were animal sounds. And I didn't even recognize the sound of my own voice. And I could hear myself saying, Jesus helped me. Jesus helped me I need you now. And Kimberly, I didn't even know who Jesus was. In the church, I think I'd been to church twice in my life. And all I knew about Jesus is I think he might be the guy on the cross. And wow, I didn't know the power of God's word were in Romans chapter one, it declares that every one intuitively knows God through what he's made. It doesn't matter who you are, how you were raised to believe what culture you're from what religion you were taught, when your heart is being crushed by pain, we know intuitively to turn to the one who made that heart, because we know on some level that he is the only one who can heal and redeem it. I did not know the power of verses like Romans 1013 that say, every one, everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved in that moment, is that there was a poem in my heart of hope. And a little flame of hope ignited the moment that I said His name.. Kimberly Hobbs   His name, the power in the name of Jesus Kim Meeder   Yes..Jesus, will you help me and all I knew is in that moment, I knew that I was not alone anymore. And something had started in this heart that said, everything's gonna be alright. You will survive, you will survive. Beginning of knowing and coming face to face with Jesus Christ in the midst of unspeakable violence and tragedy. And in Jesus His Word is true in in Psalms 23, he calls us to walk through that valley of the shadow of darkness. He doesn't tell us to camp out and live there. Right Galatians five one declares it is for freedom, freedom that Jesus Christ has set us free, that when Jesus Christ left heaven, he came to this earth, He lived a perfect life, he laid that life down in my place. And when he rose again, he broke the lock on the prison door of suffering and sin and that door can never be locked again. And it's a fact that we're all going to spend time in that place of suffering and pain. And men listening today are there right now. And sisters, I'm telling you right now that that prison that you think you're locked in, it only has three doors, that door can never be shut again. That's right need to do is reach for the hand of hope that has always been reaching for you and step out into the freedom that already purchased for you. Boom, Jesus love wins every time! Kimberly Hobbs   Yes, every time. And ladies, I just want to say this excitement and enthusiasm and Kim's voice right now. Oh, my goodness bless is because Jesus reached in at that moment, and he saw her in her place of need, he will see you in your place of yes, all in the power of the name of Jesus, he comes, ladies, it doesn't matter what you're going through or what you've done. You call on the name of the Lord Jesus, and He will be there. And ladies, this is probably we didn't know how this interview was going to open up. We just said, Lord, you're going to take over. And you know, to start off with something so tragic and painful. As cam I can't even I can't even imagine somebody that was your world, your parents, you loved your mom, you talked about how your mom taught you, you how to do things, to make blankets and amazing things. And you talk about how your dad was that influence and taught you things about the wilderness. You know, all of a sudden, they're gone. They're gone out of your life. And it's such you're an orphan at such a young age, but God, but God, and from the moment, the moment that you were conceived, he knew you he knew what you what your life was going to become. And I haven't even started into this interview yet to tell you how God is using this life that called upon his name and a moment of weakness and a moment of pain and a moment of tragedy in her life. She called out to the one and only person that could save her that could rescue her from what she was going through. And boy he did. And boy, does she have a voice in this world now and what she is using that pain and tragedy from that has now just I just have to tell you what this woman is doing. She has authored now, I think seven books is that right? Kim? Six, almost seven, six, almost seven, She's halfway through her seventh book. She is an author that speaks that speaks God has led her to speak around the world. She is she's opened up a ranch, I'm gonna let her tell you about this, but where she can share these stories about her life and identify with broken hurting children who have no hope in their life. And she can bring them hope now because she was rescued by the one and only that could help change her life forever. So we have a woman here that is going to judge to share from her heart. What she does best. I tell you this book that she read, wrote, I don't know let me see. Encountering our wild God is sharing stories from her heart life stories that will impact the reader of how to encounter our wild God from things she has experienced in her life. And ladies, I'm telling you this book is incredible. And if if I can recommend any book that it's this one right here, I couldn't put it down when I started reading. I seriously read this book and three days and I don't have a lot of time, but I just couldn't put it down. So Kim, we need to talk about some of these things that God has done in your life how he has opened your life to do now ministering to broken hurting children on a ranch that you live in Oregon Bend Oregon. And she has opened up 200 ranches all over the world. Right because of the one ranch that you guys are running right now for our Lord Jesus Christ. Yeah, Kim Meeder   This is what Jesus can do with pain that is given to him. And here's what I want women to hear today is that Jesus Christ, your journey, your unique journey is unique to you. And He will heal and transform every day of what you have walked through and use it for His glory. He'll do that Genesis 5020, what the enemy meant to destroy you by Jesus pours His love over in and through, and allows that to be the very thing that gives us life and not only us. But everyone we give it to second Corinthians one three and four is true where God says, don't, you know, paraphrase, that I'm going to comfort you and your time of need. So when others around you go through something similar, you can give them the comfort that I've given you that God's comfort is so powerful, that it not only heals us, it heals everyone we give it to, and in a nutshell, to finish the the encounter. I moved in with my grandparents on that day, they had the wisdom to buy a little horse for me, through the friendship of a little horse and the love of Jesus Christ, this wild child's life was redeemed, and oh of all those years of working through my grief in the presence of a horse, that Jesus was at work, and he was doing something beautiful and powerful. And he was creating that masterpiece. I didn't know any of that. I didn't know that every day of that he was fashioning into what he was calling this life toward. And that was to, to open a ranch that that rescues horses in need, and then combines those horses with children in need for free. Because what Jesus Christ did on the gospel, what he offers, the world is free, how dare we charge anybody for what Jesus Christ gives freely, everyone can afford free. So now this ranch has rescued over 300 horses and counting, and we visit to see about maybe around 5000 visitors a year because everyone can afford free. And we've helped to shoulder into existence, about 220 similar ranch ministries in the United States and Canada and it doesn't inform ladies, that's what God can tell with pain given to him, yes, here there's one pain let me say this quickly. And then I have something I feel strongly that I need to share. There is one pain, one that God cannot heal and redeem and use for His glory. One. And that is the pain you will not release to him. And Fred that is just pain that kills in that in that prison of pain and suffering and guilt and depression and bitterness and fear and unforgiveness, you want to be in hell on earth. Just don't forgive someone you'll get there like that. Absolutely prison place of suffering. If you are there, and any of those things exist in your life, guess who's holding on to the bars and holding the door shut. That would be you and me. Because what Jesus Christ did on the cross was complete. We have his freedom, every minute of every day. And if we're not free, it's because we're focused more on what hurts than more on the one who feels that that works. Right now, you can open your fingers on that prison door of suffering in sin and step out into the freedom and the the ministry that he's calling you toward and it doesn't have to be a big thing. That's right. Every single human being needs hope. Here's what the Lord is teaching me and this is what I want to speak over every single person who's listening today. In Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior. His Spirit lives in you. Spirit of Jesus said about the Holy Spirit in John 1613. He's the one who leads into all truth. He does. You want to know all truth. You want to know what you should do with your life. Follow Him, follow Him, follow Him. He's the one who knows the way and in every single situation. Every shoe can lay. Your life is too broken. You're too messed up, you're too wounded, you can't be healed. You are unsaved you are and valuable. All of that is a lie from the enemy. All of its ally, Asians one if you want to know who you are actually read the whole book of Ephesians that six chapters that will change your life. Right? He is Ephesians one says that you have already been blessed with every spiritual blessing. You are loved. and loaded for the King of kings, and he's put His Spirit in you. So here's what I'm learning. And here's what I what I want to speak over women today. I'm so excited. Kimberly Hobbs   I'm so excited, you are amazing.  Kim Meeder   So, we serve an amazing God, since we carry His Spirit, we are these vessels of flesh, that carry the living spirit of heaven, we carry the Holy Spirit. And here's what I'm learning that because we carry his spirit, every human interaction that we have, is an opportunity to release everything that He is love, hope, peace, joy, his patience, his kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control, every single one of those things we can release all day long. And so I'm learning ladies to simply say, Holy Spirit, lead me. Spirit lead me, and then He does... Kimberly Hobbs   That verse...whether you turn to the left or to the right, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying this is the way walk in it, he will lead you. That's an Isaiah. Kim Meeder   Right, John 10 is work that Jesus calls us His sheep and my sheep don't listen to anybody else. They know my voice, and they follow Me. Amen. So I'm learning how to follow his voice. And recently, I'm learning to invite him the Holy Spirit has an opinion on everything, everything. And I've lived so much of my life on autopilot. I know how to do this. I know how to do that. I know how to run a ministry, I know how to go grocery shopping. I know how to be a wife and to be a leader and to be a counselor a little Oh, wait, your spiritual partner better pray about that. And the Lord and His kindness is letting me know, honey, every moment that you're breathing. That's the spiritual part. That's the part that I want you to invite me into. And so I've been asking him, I need to go buy picture frames today. Where do you want me to go? Seriously, you're gonna ask the the Holy Spirit that and I'm learning Yes. Because he has an opinion. And so on this particular day, he said quickly, Goodwill was like, sweet, I love goodwill. It's like a giant yard sale, and I can afford this stuff. And instantly, I'm shopping the affordable aisles of the Goodwill store in that little tiny town in Central Oregon. And so I have my little blue basket and I find some picture frames, and I start to go to the one checkout counter that was open. And I sensed the Holy Spirit say, No, not yet. So I backed up. And I said, What else and I was redirected. I was getting ready to go do a big speaking tour in a really hot climate. And I was redirected to go buy some things for that climates, like board shorts and flip flops, and Oh, sweet. They're expensive random things, random things. So I go to the checkout counter a second time, and again, felt no, not yet. backed up. And I'm creeping around the Goodwill store. And I feel led to go back, I find one more frame I put it in. So now I'm creeping up to the counter. Like, Kimberly Hobbs   Ladies, there's a purpose for this. So please listen carefully. There's a reason God prompted her to go back into the store again. Kim Meeder   ...and to wait for his timing for his timing. So the third time, I felt nothing but release. So I step in line. And I hear the one little checkout counter woman say to the man, she was serving, I'm sorry, I don't know how to do this. I need to call for help. She calls for help. And another employee comes to help. And she cuts in front of me, she hits my basket, she almost knocks it out of my hands. And she's mad. And she opens up this cash register and she's just fuming. And she doesn't look at me. She said, Did you find everything you need? And I said, Yes, I did. And actually I found things I didn't even know I needed and, and I told her about the things that I was getting ready to do a speaking tour. And I didn't even know I needed those things. And she's like, Oh, that's great. So what do you speak on, and I shared just a little vignette of crystal peaks youth ranch and this ranch that rescues horses and serves kids and, and creates an environment where all can find the healing hope of Jesus Christ. And I get to speak about hope. And she's like, Oh, that's great. And she hasn't even looked at me. And finally she rocks back on her heels. And she leans forward and she starts to yell in my face. I'm so glad that you talk to people about hope, because I'm sick and tired. Nobody takes responsibility for anything anymore. And I'm sick of it. I'm just shouting in my face. And I'm looking at this little woman and thinking Lord Jesus, what do I do with that? And she's shouting in my face and like a bell on a clear more Morning, I heard the Holy Spirit's say, I want you to point blank her with what I've done for you. And my first thought, I gotta be honest, was a board a board. She's mad. The guy behind me is mad. Everybody's mad Lord, she's not gonna listen to that time. Jesus, it's really bad time. She's not going to hear it, God. Okay, I'm going in Lord and Lord Kimberly Hobbs   She's got her armor on. She's on a mission. Kim Meeder   Holy Spirit lead me. And so I look at her little blue smock, and I look at her little name tag, and I kid you not it said, Angel. And I said, Angel, honey, you're right. I'm glad that I get a chance to talk to people about hope. Hope is so vitally important to the human heart that I remember, not only the day, but the moment that genuine hope came into my heart. And that was the day that my dad murdered my mom. It was the day that my dad took his life. And that was the day that genuine hope came into my heart. And that was the day that Jesus Christ came in. And he's never left. Not then not now. Not ever. But God. This girl, she looked like I had shot her with an arrow. She just went, Oh. She didn't move. She didn't breathe. She stood like a statue of stone staring at the floor. After what felt like a day. She finally exhales and this beautiful laser blue eyes red hair, this little biscuit who just yelled in my face. exhales and as her eyes start to raise to meet mine. She streaking with giant tears. And in this teeny tiny little girl voice. I hear her squeak. I've never told this to anybody. When I was 12, my mom killed herself right in front of me. Oh my gosh. And Kim, really all I did was just open my arms in this gesture that Oh baby, this hug is for you. And that life ring of Hope was so vital. She didn't even go around the counter. Her knees came up on the counter, and she buried her face in the neck of a total stranger. And in a goodwill line in a little mountain town in Central Oregon. One orphan was met by a former orphan and she was adopted into the kingdom of Jesus Christ because of love. Ladies, if you don't think you have a purpose, you as the one who knows the way. James one five says that you need wisdom. Ask God he'll be glad to tell you follow the Holy Spirit. There's only one of you in all the world needs you now more than ever, ever follow the Holy Spirit in only the ways that you can and release the love and the hope and the salvation that this world is desperate and dying for. Ladies, it's time to stand up for the King of kings. mission in a job to do. You are his masterpiece. God's Word is true. Ephesians 210 You are his masterpiece Kim shows to do the good works that he chose for you you long ago. Come on ladies. Kimberly Hobbs   That's right. That's right. And ladies, what you're going through now you may not may not be Kim story. But let let us both tell you as somebody who has backgrounds who has stories of pain and tragedy, that God can turn anything around right him God can take you right where you are. It just takes faith that faith that God talks about in his word that's as small as a little mustard seed that mustard seed faith, that he can take you where you are, he will rescue you and he will do exceedingly, abundantly above all you can ask or imagine according to the power that's at work within you. When you accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. You have the Holy Spirit that comes to live inside of you. He will never leave you He will never forsake you never promises that God's word is truth. God is truth. He cannot go back on what he says ladies. So why don't you call upon the name of the Lord Jesus. He says whoever calls upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved. So once you call on his name, just like Kim did, she didn't know him. She had heard little things about a person on the cross. But there's power in the name she Hold on the name of the Lord Jesus, Jesus came and rescued her where she was, he will rescue you right where you are. And he will take this story that he is building in your life right now. And ladies, you are going to be used for a magnificent purpose, there will be a person behind the counter that needs you one day that needs to hear your story and you are boldly going to speak that story of life into that person, you will be walking down the street and you are going to see something that is going to happen and you are boldly going to move in that direction. Because as God calls you to His purpose, he's going to use you and you are going to move as he calls you. And you will be used for great and mighty things that you have no idea yet. But you have to do the first step which is call on the name of the Lord Jesus. Let him rescue you from your pain and your hurt. Right, Kim, I'm going on a rant. Kim Meeder   We're paying ladies has a purpose. It has a purpose, and he will heal and redeem every ounce of what you give him. And revelations 1210 and 11 is true. Satan is defeated by two things, two things what Jesus Christ did on the cross, it's already happened. It's already done, Satan's already defeated and the spoken word of your testimony... Kimberly Hobbs   Your testimony. Kim Meeder   ...deteats the power of the enemy, when you speak out what Jesus Christ has done for you. The enemy is absolutely defeated. Why do you think he attacks your words so much? He wants you to remain silent, who are you to share anything, just be silent. They don't listen to that lie. You have been deemed that you have an every time you speak out what Jesus Christ has done for you. The enemy is completely defeated. And you've released the love and the hope, the joy, the peace, and everything that you have in Jesus Christ into the heart of another person. It's like throwing a life ring to someone who's drowning. Don't walk by again, if Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior so undid that for you, and I know who did it for me, and I will live 1000 lifetimes of gratitude that they stood in that gap and said, Kimmy, do you know how much Jesus loves you. And now I know. And now that baton of faith has been handed to me. If you could call yourself a Christian, it's handed to you. And now it is your time to run it forward, sister. The day it begins today. ipcn. With you, as you run for the King of Kings read Hebrews 112, one through three, it's true. It's time for us to run this race with our eyes focused on Him, not what hurts that's already been dealt with. Focus on him and what he's done and the healing and the redemption in the salvation. You already have. Now, run that forward for His glory. Sisters, it's time. Kimberly Hobbs   That's it your time is now the time is now. Obviously, Kim meter, we are so grateful. Just so grateful this this time has gone by in a flash, I can't even believe it. But Kim has promised that she would come back again, ladies. And we are going to talk to her in more depth and what God has shared and what God has done with this life of just just incredible what she's doing to encourage people. So ladies, we are so grateful that you stepped in today to listen to this podcast, we just want to tell you that yes, God is doing exceedingly abundantly beyond what we can ask or imagine.

Dr Bill is taking us on an informative and provocative journey through the Sermon on the Mount. It is the capstone of the entire gospel message of Jesus. If we don't understand what Jesus is saying and means to say, it will affect our experience of Him and His Spirit. We think that your life will be changed as you wrestle with us on this path.About it, Frederick Bruner writes, “I think something actually happens to listening people when Jesus' Beatitudes are passed on to them…The Beatitudes are concentrated Gospel…The person for whom the experience of impoverishment is a spiritual crisis, who groans in his or her spirit under the poverty, who is on the way down and who cries out—to this person Jesus announces, “Look up! I am here, taking your part, and the Kingdom I bring is especially for you!” (160)The Sermon on the Mount is the core foundation for all the rest of Jesus' gospel. The Beatitudes (the Blessed Bes) are the cornerstone for the entire Sermon on the Mount, and the first beatitude (5:3) is the pinnacle of it all. Welcome to the Sermon on the Mount.
