HIS-Story

9 11 2018

j0309700The only accurate way to look at the history of the world, is to see it as God’s story. The written records of history from fossils to the Bible all tell one single narrative. It’s HIS-story. In fact, the best way to view the Bible, is as God’s recording of history, much of it even before it happens in our time/space continuum.

My friend, Rick Heeren, inspired me to write this blog from an important view of the Torah that we both share. The Torah (aka the Old Testament) was not cancelled when Yeshua/Jesus came as the Messiah. He was the Promised One to Abraham and all generations. His appearance brought to pass much of what was promised to the Fathers and the Prophets.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Matthew 5:16-18

Notice the phrase “jot or tittle.” Jesus knew exactly what he said, because He was referring literally to the tiniest letter (yod) and the tiniest marks in the writing of Hebrew letters. What an amazing confirmation by Jesus, that every word God spoke will come to pass to the most exact detail! Listen to Joshua, a forerunner of Yeshua/Jesus:

“Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which Yehovah your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed.” Joshua 23:14

Therefore know that Yehovah your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; Deuteronomy 7:9

Yet, the narrative did not end there. Even today much remains to be fulfilled, that was sworn by Yehovah God, to Abraham thousands of years ago. My favorite example is Psalm 102, which I call The Holocaust Psalm. The first eleven verses are a graphic literal description of the Holocaust. Then, verse 13 clearly states:

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13

This also is readily seen in history. From 70 AD (the destruction of the 2nd Temple by the Romans) until 1948, the Jews never won a war. Since the rebirth of Israel immediately after the Holocaust, according to HIS-story, the Jews have never lost a war. Only Yehovah, the faithful God, could accomplish such a continuing miracle up to today. If one tries to predict the future, he only need consult the Bible as a continuing literal historical narrative. SELAH

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Native American Historic Forgiveness

25 10 2016

all-tribes“TODAY MAY GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN AMERICAN HISTORY.” An extraordinary event happened in Washington, DC last Friday while no one was watching. Representatives of nearly all native American nations gathered for one purpose in prayer led by Chief Dr. Negiel Big Pond. They were there to declare forgiveness to the United States of America for all the  treaties broken by the US. If you don’t know the history, almost every treaty was broken. The US government has a miserable record toward the sovereign Indian nations.

Chiefs and leaders from 1,000 tribes met to simply forgive. The US did not ask for it. Indian leaders initiated it out of Christian love, as a way to remove America from the righteous consequences of broken governmental vows. This is is their statement:

“We, the All Tribes DC Council invite all Tribes and Nations to join us on October 21, 2016 at the Washington Memorial in Washington, DC to release the power of forgiveness and to bring healing and restoration to America.
As indigenous people of this land, we carry a governmental responsibility to bring a Nation back to its ordained purpose. A representation of Nations within a Nation, we believe in an outcome that will yield a bountiful harvest of souls through the power of forgiveness.
This is the first time in the history of America that the First Nations people will lead a National Day of Prayer for the healing of this Great Country. It’s time for us to take our rightful place in the Body of Christ and lead this Great Awakening!” All Tribes DC

All Tribes D.C. National Day of Prayer for the First Nations • Oct. 21, 2016 Here is a listing of the tribes. http://www.alltribesdc.org/

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBES FORGIVING U.S.A. FOR EVERY BROKEN TREATY  (a full report from Rick Joyner)

TODAY MAY GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN AMERICAN HISTORY. Very few may even know that anything special happened. Jesus even said that the kingdom came “without observation,” or unnoticed. Some of the greatest things happen that way, and only a very few who have their eyes open, and are looking in the right direction, see them. So what is happening today that is so special?

One Thousand North American Indian Tribes from the U.S. and Canada are sponsoring a special ceremony on the Mall in Washington to forgive the U.S. Government for all of its broken treaties. In Scripture, breaking a vow or treaty brings a curse on the land, and the U.S. Government broke every treaty it made with the Native American Tribes. Chief Negiel Bigpond, the primary coordinator for this event, told me that they were going to forgive the U.S. whether we asked for it or not, simply because they do not want our country to suffer the consequences of this any longer. This is one of the most noble acts of true Christian charity I have ever heard of by any people group.

Have we suffered because of the curse that comes when we break an agreement? We have suffered profoundly, and virtually every major crisis America is facing right now is a reflection of the crisis on that the Native Americans have endured on the reservations that were directly caused by the broken treaties. A couple of years ago Chief Bigpond shared about a ten minute address with a room full of high impact leaders and some world class thinkers, which he titled, “Welcome to the Reservation.” He connected all of the crises we had been discussing to what they faced on the reservations, and when he finished it shut down the meeting as no one else there wanted to speak after such a profound revelation, besides, we had possibly the most important answer to the crises.
This is very real. National injustices are a major issue we’re facing now whether we want to or not, and this is a big one. We will continue on the road to oblivion if we do not consequences of injustices that were sometimes done generations ago, but are still a festering, infected would that is poisoning the whole body.
I’ve known Negiel for many years, and I’ve never seen him ever display a victim mentality, or bitterness. I call him “the happiest Indian” and I think he may be. He’s a transcendent leader and thinker of such stature possibly because he does not waste his time on pettiness, and he so easily forgives. I once asked Chief Bigpond if he was offended by the Washington Redskins name, and his reply was, “Only when they play bad.” One thousand tribes are going to forgive us today simply because they don’t want us to suffer for wrongs done to them. Have you ever heard of anything so noble? How would our world change if we all started to think like that? ~ Rick Joyner

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,” Matthew 5:44

“If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you.” Matthew 6:14

Don’t Feed the Animals

23 09 2016

don't feedThe food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever in its history.

Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed the Animals,” because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves. (Thanks to Dave McCurdy for this.)

Does anyone notice a disconnect here?

This bothers me on three levels. First, is the obvious fact that our government is systematically creating total dependence on its services. Between welfare and government employees, 50% of Americans now depend directly on the government for their “daily bread”. The transfer from depending on God to man is breathtakingly arrogant, and is accelerating.

Second, this creates a “demanding spirit”. Derek Prince, Bible teacher and mentor, used a profound phrase: “You can never satisfy a demanding spirit”. A genuine, sincere request can be answered. But once people get something for nothing, they always want more.Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied. Proverbs 27:20 There is a satanic spirit behind the demands. It is also illustrated in the demands of terrorists. All attempts to meet their demands are only answered with more demands. Appeasement is a dead end.

Third, never cast your pearls before swine. Jesus taught, that not valuing your gestures, they would turn and attack you! Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you. Matthew 7:6

There is a place for food stamps for truly needy people, but it should have the goal of independence rather than unending dependence. The same can be said of nearly unlimited unemployment benefits. There are now operational plans where the benefits lead to actual employment. For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10

Odd Way to Worship

6 09 2012

 

Today’s cartoon is not about Islam. It is about Islamism, the international, antisemitic, anti-female, anti-freedom, anti-western, fascist movement that is now out of control and infecting Muslims around the world …and inciting them to kill. Islamism is the enemy that the world refuses to name. (Yaakov Kirschen -Dry Bones- Israel’s Political Comic Strip Since 1973)

One of the most encouraging signs of the end of this age is revealed in this cartoon and the commentary by the cartoonist. For many years I proclaimed that Israel and the church were on parallel tracks. However, the Lord corrected me a few years ago. They are not parallel (meaning they would never meet) but they are merging. Mr. Kirschen is an Israeli who is asking the right question. He illustrates that the god of Islam is different in character from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Christians and Jews preach that God is love. Islam’s god is primarily a god of War. Our God is a Father. The Koran adamantly and utterly rejects that its god could, or ever would be a father. It is considered blasphemy.

Therefore, I rejoice to see this step toward the reconciliation destined for Jews and Christians.

Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? Proverbs 30:4

Please keep me in prayer as I minister in Idaho the next two weeks. Thank you.

Jordan On the Brink

18 04 2012

Jordan has banned the Muslim Brotherhood in the Kingdom as a political party. The King is also trying to forge a separation between Jordanians and Palestinians. Psalm 83 comes into sharper focus with Jordan’s latest moves. King Abdullah II is feeling the heat of the Arab Spring. After maintaining a low profile in the year since the Arab Spring blossomed and then exploded in the Middle East, Jordan is now in the cross-hairs of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Jordanian Parliament did not ban the MB by name, but banned all political parties based on religion. This shrewd move cuts off the method of using a different name for the party as the Muslim Brotherhood did in Egypt, naming themselves the “Freedom and Justice Party”. In Gaza, the offshoot slowly became Hamas.

Some 70% of Jordan’s citizens are Palestinians, complicating the King’s dilemna. “In a surprise move, Jordan has decided to revoke the Jordanian citizenship of Palestinian Authority and PLO officials, sources in Amman disclosed Wednesday.” Will the Palestinian flag fly over Jordan?

In 2009, Amman quietly began revoking the Jordanian citizenship of thousands of Palestinians, triggering strong protests from human rights organizations and pro-Palestinian groups around the world. Over the past year, Jordan has witnessed increased demands for reforms and democracy. The “Arab Spring” that has been sweeping the Arab world has prompted thousands of Jordanians to take to the streets every week to demand real changes and freedoms. (Jerusalem Post)

Psalm 83 lists the countries attacking Israel in the next war, including Jordan. Since the King is pro-Western, something will happen to line up Jordan with the confederacy against Israel. This is another step in that direction. The King will do all he can to avoid it, but the Brotherhood will not take this ban easily. Expect more protests and increasing violence against the Kingdom of Jordan in the very near future. Pray for the safety and protection of King Abdullah and his family. He has been a good friend to the West.

In the end, however, it is Yehovah God and His plan that will prevail, as Daniel reminds us:

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness,and light dwells with Him. Daniel 2:20-22
