06/27 BE ASHAMED AND CONFOUNDED…2600 years ago, God's people petitioned Him to intervene in their national woes. They reasoned they deserved His benevolence because He had chosen them and blessed them in the past.

06/14 FOR SUCH A TME AS THIS…It all began with a government official who had an intense personal prejudice and hatred for a group of people who had become part of his nation. He used his position of governance to schedule their total annihilation. God intervened, prompting an unlikely savior of the people through these timeless words: "And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” More...

05/30 BRING TWO LOAVES OF BREAD…There are two loaves of bread, side by side, on the offering table to the Lord today. This unusual offering was appointed at this time of the year, around the 6th to 9th day of God's 3rd month, May 29 to 31 on our Gregorian calendar. Since both loaves are leavened, they appear to be spiritually significant as sinful types of mankind. But this is a heavenly offering...

05/20 WHY DO YOU STAND HERE LOOKING INTO THE SKY? We Christians spend most of our lives consumed with the world around us. How can it be that even the phenomenal events during the 40 days after Jesus’s resurrection seem to be lost in the shuffle of our pandemic woes? If the disciples were here today, they would surely excitedly tell us these were the most precious days of their entire lives! More...

05/14 THEY BURIED THE PEOPLE THAT HAD A CRAVING…3500 years ago, during May 14-17 on our 2020 Gregorian calendar, God sent a plague upon a nation who claimed to worship Him but were never satisfied with His direction and provision. God's Word records many of them complained to death, literally. “Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving...They buried the people who had the craving.” Numbers 11:4,34. More...

05/09 IN THE MORNING YOU WILL SEE THE GLORY OF THE LORD…Lately we Christians have been reduced to just plain-old grumbling about our current circumstances. It is no coincidence that God Almighty has appointed this lesson for us at exactly this time. Like the ancient Israelites, we have been crying out to God for deliverance, and our patience is fading fast. Listen now as the Lord speaks: “… In the morning you will see the glory of the Lord, because he has heard your grumbling against him…” Exodus 16:6 More...

04/26 ON THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD IT WILL BE PROVIDED…Easily the most hotly contested and desired real estate on planet Earth, Mount Moriah’s 4000 year history is literally, out of this world. When Abraham faithfully obeyed God’s call to sacrifice his son on the mount, a ram was provided, and Isaac was spared. After hearing the words of the Lord on the mountain and the gift of the ram, Abraham made this statement in Genesis 22:14: “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided”. More...

04/25 EVERY MAN BY NAME...The Lord said to Abraham in Genesis 15:5: “Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them…so shall your offspring be.” Today, astronomers estimate there are ten thousand billion trillion stars. That’s a 1 followed by 25 zeros and lots of exclamation points. 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000!!! More...

ON THE 24TH DAY OF THE FIRST MONTH, April 18, 2020…This calendar date appointed in God’s Word, April 18 on our 2020 Gregorian calendar, was significant enough to be recorded in the book of the Bible announcing apocalyptic events connected with the second coming of King Jesus. It is no coincidence that God’s Word is crossing the chasm of time itself, with a vitally important message. We need to be counting the days, but we need to count focused upon God’s timeline, not our own. That conscious move on our part will cancel out COVID19 and deliver us to the truth of JESUS20. More...

04/11 PEACE BE WITH YOU! Following the morning Resurrection of Jesus, this incredible account is recorded in John 20:19-20: “On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.” More...

04/10 WHO IS IT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR? This is the question Jesus asked Mary on that magnificent Resurrection Morn. 2000 years later, this question still pierces us to the core. It should, because our answer can literally mean the difference between life and death. More...

04/07 LET MY PEOPLE GO…God has been speaking this for a long time. Those of us living today are witnessing what our ancestors could have only hoped for. Though no one is voicing it, we know it’s happening. Right this very minute, the entire world is being rearranged and quieted in preparation for the return of Jesus Christ! More...
 

04/05 IT IS FINISHED…We are approaching the most important week in the history of mankind with the anniversary of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And this year, God Almighty has arranged it so He has our attention. There is so much He wants to teach us, and so little time left. More...

04/04 I WILL BRING ONE MORE PLAGUE… 3500 years ago, under the midnight illumination of a full moon, God brought a final plague upon a proud, haughty nation that would convince them once and for all that He was God. He would bring death to every household. Only the life’s blood of an innocent lamb could save them. But they would have to choose that lamb themselves, care for it in their homes, and together, sacrifice it so that they might live. Appointed death would “pass over” them if the innocent’s blood marked their abode. Exodus 11-12 More...

03/29 HE SET HIS FACE TO GO TO JERUSALEM…2000 years ago, during this same time of the year, Jesus journeyed from the countryside up to the ancient city of Jerusalem, one last time. As He traveled through town after town, He constantly surprised all who would listen, teaching them in ways they could never have understood under any other circumstances. Indeed, that is what He is doing in our generation through our worldwide virulent infection and forced quarantine.

More...

03/22 IN THE BEGINNING GOD…In our lifetime, we are witnessing the whole earth literally coming to a standstill. God Almighty has hit the reset button, physically, and spiritually. The evening of March 25 on our 2020 Gregorian calendar will usher in darkness giving way to "Earthrise", as a new year, and a new era, begin for the entire world at the direction of God Himself.

More...

03/16 LIKE A BRIDEGROOM COMING OUT OF HIS CHAMBER… The whole world has been yanked from its appointed timetable and put in physical quarantine because of coronavirus. Coronavirus’ name is Latin, and "corona" means "crown". Just around the corner is the anniversary of the death and resurrection of Jesus, mockingly crowned by man as "King of the Jews". Now is the time for us to begin to understand that God has a calendar in place for HIS crowning on this earth of JESUS AS KING OF KINGS. According to Him, this year will begin its official closing on March 16, 2020. In spiritual imagery, what follows looks “like a Bridegroom coming out of His chamber…” on His way to the Bride. More...

03/08 GOD IS WITH US..."Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; Speak the word, but it will not stand, For God is with us." Isaiah 8:10 has been sung for millennia at this time of the year to celebrate the deliverance of Purim, the salvation of a nation scheduled for total annihilation by their enemy.

More...

03/01 INSTEAD HE WITHDREW…“Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the people of Judea. Instead he withdrew to a region near the wilderness, to a village called Ephraim, where he stayed with his disciples.” John 11:54

More...

02/23 I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE… During the last winter of His life, Jesus made an earth-shattering statement that literally brought the future into the present. “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26. More...

02/16 BABYLON…COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE... We need this timely warning that the infamous biblical Babylon and her expansive walls still exists. We Christians are literally surrounded by her idols, mindset, and government. Given the call of the Almighty to "Come out of her, my people!", will we listen and repent? More...

02/09 A CITY WITHOUT WALLS...God's Word crosses the chasm of 2700 years with a timeless message for 2020. When a prophet had a vision of “a man with a measuring line in his hand” headed to measure Jerusalem's walls, God dispatched an angel with this chastising message: "Jerusalem will be a city without walls... And I myself will be a wall of fire around it," declares the Lord, "and I will be its glory within." More...

02/02 A MAN RIDING A RED HORSE…About 2700 years ago during this month, the ancient prophet Zechariah's night-visions began with a man riding a red horse. These revelations continue to encourage God’s people, reminding us He is interested in the details of our lives, and is working behind the scenes with a perfect plan for rebuilding His heavenly and earthly Temple through His people on this earth. More...

01/26 YOU HAVE STAYED LONG ENOUGH AT THS MOUNTAIN… Around 1500 BC, God Almighty announced through Moses that the Israelites had to move forward away from their comfort zone in order to follow Him. “In the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses proclaimed to the Israelites all that the LORD had commanded him concerning them…The LORD our God said to us at Horeb, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance…” Deuteronomy1:3,6 More...

01/06 2600 years ago, during this same time of the year, God said to His chosen people, “The people there refuse to obey me...Tell them, This is what the Lord God says: 'PUT THE POT ON THE FIRE' "

More...
 

01/01 THEIR HEARTS ARE GREEDY ..."When Christmas is over, when you have had all your presents and food, Jesus is all we have left”. Yes, after we’ve had all the things we thought we needed, what we really needed was a Middle Eastern refugee in a tent, who didn’t have presents and food, to remind us that all we ever really needed, WE ALREADY HAD.

More...

12/22 I AM GOD’S SON...While God's Word doesn't say Baby Jesus was born at Christmas, it does tell us what the Man Jesus was doing then. While everyone else was celebrating a holiday, Jesus continued doing the same thing He had done for the past 3 years. He appealed to religious folks to believe that He was the Son of God, the prophesied Messiah who would save them from their sins.

More...

12/15 YOU HAVE BEEN UNFAITHFUL...In stark contrast to festive strains of "O Come All Ye Faithful", God voices the exact opposite of what we want to hear this holiday season. It's a powerful lesson of another nation who turned from dependence on God for deliverance and began to rely on their own independent spirit to accomplish the task. “…And on the twentieth day of the ninth month, all the people were sitting in the square before the house of God, greatly distressed by the occasion…You have been unfaithful.” Ezra 10:9-10. More...

12/01 THIS IS WHAT THE LORD ALMIGHTY SAYS: "Administer true justice: show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other." Zechariah 7:9-10. Given God's definition of justice, when we Christians are measured on God's scales, will we be found lacking?

More...

11/24 HE WHO OFFERS A SACRIFICE OF THANKSGIVING HONORS ME...
Now consider this, you who forget God,
Or I will tear you in pieces, and there will be none to deliver.
He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me;
And to him who orders his way aright
I shall show the salvation of God.
Psalm 50:22-23 More...

11/17 THE TEMPLE WAS... For over 400 years, the Shekinah Glory of Almighty God was physically the center and spiritual foundation of Israel's national life. The people brought daily offerings to Him in Solomon’s Temple and gathered as a nation to worship Him during the 3 High Holy Days of Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. But over the years, the faithful worshipers became prideful of their image as God's people, placing their faith in their abilities as a nation. All that remains of the magnificent temple is part of the physical foundation, known today as the "Wailing Wall". More...

11/10 "WALK IN MY WAYS AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT…”  Fear and the desire to be delivered from laws they didn’t like, prompted a nation who had worshiped God for almost 1000 years to mistakenly pledge their allegiance to a king who didn’t take God seriously. Unwittingly, they allowed him to bring other gods into their midst, leading them to break the very first commandment God had given them. .More...

11/03 RETURN TO ME AND I WILL RETURN TO YOU... In the 6th century BC, Zechariah proclaimed God's Word to the religious folks of his day. 2700 years later, the same Word is being declared to 21st century Christians. We still don’t want to hear it any more than the people of ancient Judah did. But thank God, here it is, still just as applicable as ever... still the word of the Lord for His people!

More...

10/27 "STAND UP AND PRAISE THE LORD YOUR GOD…YOU WERE RIGHT AND WE WERE WRONG..." Around 2500 years ago, a nation stood united in praise to the Lord with the sole intent of honoring Him through national repentance of their sins. The longest prayer of the entire Bible was offered as a worship unto God on the 24th day of God's 7th month, October 22 on our 2019 Gregorian calendar. This timeless prayer is right on target for us today as Christians in America.  More...

10/20 “MY TIME IS NOT YET HERE” These are the Words of Jesus as He spoke to His disciples at exactly this same time of the year over 2000 years ago. Timing IS everything when it comes to the revelation of Jesus Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. God’s timing and calendar began, is centered, and will be revealed in the Holy Land, in the land of today’s Middle East.  More...

10/13 GOD HIMSELF WILL BE WITH THEM… God’s Word tells us that is exactly what will happen in the end times! It is no coincidence that major Middle Eastern upheavals are taking place right now during the very days God has appointed for us to be watching for the return of Jesus Christ! More...

10/06 S A L V A T I O N… "Everyone has to die once, then face the consequences. Christ's death was also a one-time event, but it was a sacrifice that took care of sins forever. And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely, salvation.” Hebrews 9:27-28 More...

09/27 WATCH! Not only is this a beautiful picture of the Almighty’s handiwork in the evening sky here in Fontana Dam, NC, it prophetically annoints the day God's trumpet will announce the return of Jesus Christ! It is the biblical epic appointment known as the Day of Trumpets, expected to begin at sunset September 29, on our 2019 Gregorian calendar, beginning the 1st day of God’s appointed 7th month.
