With the dawn of a new level of technology we are currently living in, it is interesting to ponder the scriptures that are given to us in Revelation as God showed the Apostle John would happen in the end times. Until this time much of it didn’t make sense, but now in light of what is possible we would be wise to revisit these texts. You can read this portion of scripture and think about it…..
Revelation 13;14-17  “And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.  He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.  He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,  and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Notice…..an image was given power and “breath” (as in make to seem alive) and that image was able to speak and make demands. Granted power….can also mean given authority.

This sounds an awful like an “artificial intelligence” AI that we know they are developing. With algorithms that make it seem like it is thinking. And now computers “speak” and answer your questions. Think about ‘Siri” and artificial intelligence that can pretty much can answer any question you ask it. And they have given it a personality.

Then jump to the last part. No one will be able to buy and sell with out the mark or number of the beast. Ask yourself why? They already have RFID chips that can be implanted into the body that can contain all kinds of info. But the point I am making is that it speaks of a technology that was not even in existence a few decades ago. Yet the Apostle John saw it in a vision 2000 years ago as God …who knows the end from the beginning… showed it to him.

Here is another serious scripture concerning the mark…..

Revelation 13:8
“All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

Only those born again will be able to resist this tyranny….

This is a strong warning about taking that mark….

Revelation 14:9, 10 “ Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,  he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. “

Anyway…..my point for all of this is to show that the technology to fulfill these end time scriptures is in place and increasing. If you have been following the news…..even India has gone to a cashless society…..moving the world closer to this reality. (you can google that).

Technology can be good…..but at some point it will cross the line and become in the control of evil. Will we recognize that day when it comes? I hope so…..

There is a place called refuge
Not in this earthly realm
But it is a place that we can dwell
With Jesus at the helm

Within that walk of confidence
We can walk away
From all the voices on the earth
That catch our breath away

So many things distract us
They are the enemy
Of the Source that gives us life
Lord, open our eyes to see

What are you being robbed of?
Our Lord, His heart does bleed
He sees your woundedness child
And you He wants to be…

Safely in His sheepfold
Where He can keep you warm
Holding you close to His chest
Keeping you from harm

Why is it we can’t see Him
Think that He doesn’t care
We’ve bought the lies about Him
Think that He’s really not there

Now you don’t need a building
Or a pew to kneel down there
There is an alter in your heart
And He will meet you there

Don’t you know He’s waiting
He wants to draw you in
To that place of loving
Forgiving all your sin

He promises to cleanse you
Your past to throw away
You simply need to trust Him
And talk to Him today

A NEW TIMELINE – Poetry

October 27, 2016

Do you need a word today
To catch you when you start to sway

A word that says that you are loved
With someone watching from above

To know that you are not alone
And if you choose you’ll have a home

The Lord has paved the way for you
If you just choose to walk on through

His blood is on the mercy seat
To wash you clean if you receive

This life we have – not all there is
Beyond the veil we’ll live with Him

Don’t put it off, now is the time
Open up to a new timeline

This earthly life’s not all we have
So don’t despair and don’t get mad

Focus on eternal things
It’s thoughts like these that give you wings

CHAOS AND GLORY – Poetry

October 27, 2016

Waiting in the wings
Are such glorious things
For those that love the Lord

You’ve been through the trials
And cried for a while
But the truth is you’ve sharpened your sword

Handcrafted we are
And shine like a star
The more we yeild to Him

We’re safe in His hands
In His master plan
Though it looks like we’re out on a limb

Though chaos may come
He sits on His throne
In His secret place we may dwell

As we draw close to Him
Get ready to swim
We can know that all will be well

LAST CALL – POETRY

October 27, 2016

Oh how this world
Has turned against God
They trample Him down
Underfoot they have trod

They mock His commandments
They spit in His face
Not only this country
But the whole human race

The hand that has made them
Has brought them so far
But they trade Him for gold things
For houses and cars

They hate His commandments
Set out to remove
Any rule of law
All justice they eschew

How long
Will His patient endurance remain?
How is it we don’t know
We can’t trample on His name?

Judgement and justice
Have not passed away
Consequences for sin
Are intact for this day

His grace won’t erase
For an unrepentant heart
Only those that are sorry
Turn from sin, from it depart

We can’t have it our own way
The Universe is His
We are His creation
We were born into this

He has made it so easy
His grace to receive
Paradise awaits us
For those who believe

Jesus paid the price
And a high price it was
To hang on a cross
For something He’s not done

Each has a choice
On which to be
He will separate the goats
From the sheep, all will see

Actions speak loudly
You cannot deceive
You may lie to the world
But with God it won’t be

Two thousand years
Is a long time for grace
Time to get ready
We will soon see His face

To the obedient such joy
To the rebellious such pain
The choice is your own
Which camp you’ll remain

One to damnation
There is eternal fire
The other to paradise
With a heavenly choir

Not playing games
So serious this is
He wants you to choose
To believe and be His

This may just be
Your last night on earth
Only God knows
Your death and your birth

Because it’s a choice
It’s all I can do
To sound this hard warning
And hope you will choose

Life without ending
In heavenly bliss
With great loving care
I hope you won’t miss

Can’t do it for you
It’s your soul to keep
But know that right now
For you we do weep

God truly loves you
Only believe
Reconnect with Him
Your soul He’ll receive

DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH

October 24, 2016

Below is a song I wrote a decade ago, but seems so important at this critical time in our history. Enjoy! ( song can be found at cdbaby.com/cd/chamblee2) praying for revival!!!

DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FEAR OF GOD
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FRIGHT
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HOLINESS
THAT USED TO BE SO RIGHT

HAS JEHOVAH CHANGED THAT MUCH
IS HE A DIFFERENT GOD?
WAS HE A CHAMELEON?
OR A TEMPORARY FACADE?

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

WHERE IS THE RIGHT AND WRONG?
GOT SWALLOWED IN THE HOLE
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
SEEMS TO BE THE WORLDLY MOLD
ARE WE NOT THE CHURCH OF GOD
AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST?
MADE TO REPRESENT OUR LORD
AND LIVE OUT LOUD HIS LIFE

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US NOW?
MY HEART IS TORN IN TWO
SO CALLED GOSPEL PREACHED TODAY
IS FAR FROM BEING TRUE

JESUS THE MESSIAH KING
BRIGHT AND SHINING STAR
WORTHY OF OUR RESPECT
HOW DID WE FALL SO FAR?

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

BRING US LORD TO OUR KNEES
IN THIS OUR ONLY HOPE
REPENTANCE FROM OUR WORTHLESS DEEDS
RETURNING TO THE HEART

DID WE THINK THAT HE WON’T SEE?
THAT WE COULD HIDE OUR LIFE
DID WE THINK HE IS DECEIVED?
OUR DIETY OF LIGHT

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

October 13, 2016

I want to bring out a word of caution about this subject. I am seeing such an uptick in the amount of Christians that are turning on other Christians. Let it not be so among us! Be alert to this trick of Satan and do not partake!

Mark 13:12-13  “Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 13 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

Ephesians 4:31  “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.”

Now I am not saying to ignore gross errors in doctrine or lawlessness and ungodly living. I’m not talking about that. But I am talking about picking on your brothers and sisters in Christ that believe a little different than you. Maybe you don’t eat meat…..others do. Is that a reason to break fellowship? NO!

One of the other things I see coming on the scene is a dangerous return to the law. Just because people have abused the grace of God, we must not be tempted to go back to the jewish laws. I have even heard some saying that if you call Jesus anything but Yeshua (His name in Hebrew) that He won’t listen. They also come with a spirit of superiority by flashing words in Hebrew to sound “knowledgable”. Knowledge is great, but without humility, it can turn into something ugly.

1 Corinthians 1-3 “….Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.  And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.  But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.”

Now I study Hebrew too and know quite a few words, I’ve also been to Israel and was blessed by it …..but that does not make me any better or elevate me above my brethren. NO! Ephesians 4:32 tells us how we should treat our brothers and sisters in Christ:

“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

Kind, tenderhearted and forgiving! Which is a far cry from what is out there. I understand there is a HUGE course correction needed in the body of Christ. There is a great number of lukewarm christians that will be spewed out of Jesus mouth. Revelation 3:16
“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”

So there is correction needed. But remember Paul said to speak the truth in love.

Ephesians 4:15 “…..but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

We, as true believers in Jesus Christ, are a Body! We must look with the others best interest at heart. With lots of love!! Everyone of us who are believers are going through hard times now. We need a lot more love!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “ Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
LOVE NEVER FAILS.

I pray you have an awesome day and know that you are deeply loved by your Creator and you Savior Jesus Christ!

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first…”

JUDAS KISS….BETRAYAL IS COMING

The kiss of Judas
Is at your feet
The time’s drawing near
This spirit will be released

I can hear the cries
Of days just ahead
When brother betrays brother
Many will end up dead

I can feel the tears
On wet stained cheeks
Hearts so tender
They could never believe

Believe the betrayal
That is coming their way
With a purpose so sinister
So large in this day

They’ve teamed up with Satan
To give it a go
To rise to the top
Illegally so

To take you all out
Out of the Light
Out of the living
And into the night

Don’t care about you
Their hearts are so cold
How could you see it
When you’ve loved them so

Run to your Maker
Give Him your tears
Don’t let the bitterness
Steal away your years

Moments in time
Don’t risk the hate
Run, run away from it
Let forgiveness have it’s way

Rise above it
Rise above it all
Love is the answer
They will soon hit the wall

Let God bring the justice
He promises to
For those unrepentant
He’s said what He will do

Keep your hands clean
Keep your heart pure
Don’t let temptation
Take you down in the dirt

Let love arise
It’s a conquering force
Take on this power
By making your choice

Choose to forgive
Let it go, set it free
The damage will be minimized
It will heal, you will see

Trust in Your Maker
Walk in His ways
It’s the only way, beloved
We can survive in these days

Evil can’t triumph
If we don’t let it in
Jesus forgave us
From all of OUR sins

So must we do
Let God make things right
Don’t let yourself
Sit in judgement tonight

Keep your hands clean
Walk with hearts upright
All things God has seen
It’s all in His sight

He will deal justly
In this we can trust
We don’t have to help Him
He’s faithful and just

Betrayal it is coming
For some it is here
Take heed with this warning
There’s no need to fear

This life is fleeting
Our soon coming King
Will remove all the pain
That this life did bring.
