A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

May 29, 2020

Did you know…..King Solomon – the wisest man that lived, wrote the entire book of Proverbs and was chosen to build the temple of God.  Did you know that he fell away from God and worshipped idols at the end of his life?  I don’t think I have ever heard a sermon on it, though I had read it in the Bible.  And still, it shocks me today.  Here is the account in 1 Kings.

1 Kings 11:4-10   For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David.  For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom[b] the abomination of the Ammonites.  Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and did not fully follow the Lord, as did his father David.  Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, on the hill that is east of Jerusalem, and for Molech the abomination of the people of Ammon.  And he did likewise for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and sacrificed to their gods.

 So the Lord became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from the Lord God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice,  and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he did not keep what the Lord had commanded.

So the reason I bring this up is because of the following scripture below concerning the falling away

2 Thessalonians 2:3,4    Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,  who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

At end of his life, after such a life of glory – he fell away from God.  Soloman!!   How could this be?   It is actually quite simple.  He did not obey God in everything and ignored God’s warnings and command.   

1 Kings 11  “But King Solomon loved many foreign women, as well as the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites— from the nations of whom the Lord had said to the children of Israel, “You shall not intermarry with them, nor they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods.” Solomon clung to these in love.

It is often that we do the same things.  Cling to the very things God has asked us to let go.  We stay in the “worldly mindset” and don’t renew our minds and lives to the Word of God and God’s ways.  It may not matter for a long, long time – but look at the end results.  

This should be a warning, especially in this hour to listen and obey God’s directives.  Lest we think, like Soloman, and dismiss some of  God’s commands and end up snared and trapped.  Apart from God we can do nothing…

I know it’s a lot to think about.  But we are living in the last days and things can’t be taken for granted.  We need to live under the shadow of the Most High (Psalm 91)  where our good Father just wants to protect us and keep us safe.  

Lord show us any area we have been ignoring and blowing you off.  Keep us safe in the shadow of Your wings and protect us in the hour.  Amen

Are Aliens Found In Scripture?  Alien aircraft?  Check out What the Bible actually says……   you need to know NOW…..

It is a question that few will tackle.  But rest assured that God has given answers to all we need to know in scripture.

We are shown in scripture that there are several types of “beings” that God has created besides man.  We, mankind, are described as being in the very image of God,  (Genesis 1:27

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.)  And that if we become born again through Jesus Christ, that we are forever the children of God.  And by default those that reject Christ are described as: (John 8:44   ”  You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do.)

When we die as believers in Christ, we are absent from our bodies, but our spirit/soul is present with the Lord.  ( 2 Corinthians 5:8   “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”)

We know that heaven is a real place.  We have also been told that there are creatures around the throne of God singing “holy, holy, holy.”  and eyes all around them.  (Revelation 4:8    The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”)

  We know too that there are holy angels that serve God and that there are fallen angels, precisely 1/3 of the angels that rebelled against God and followed the fallen angel Lucifer, whom we now call Satan.

There is a whole unseen world that God has chosen to keep our eyes veiled to.(1 Corinthians 13:12  “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.)  Occasionally the Holy Spirit chooses to open someones eyes to see into that realm.  (discerning of spirits – 1 Corinthians 12:10)  God’s angels that serve Him, fallen angels, demonic spirits that serve Satan.  It is a fascinating study and things are not hidden in scripture as we see that Jesus cast out demons from the demoniac at Gaderenes. ( Luke 8:30

“Jesus asked him, saying, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him.”)

There are many other scriptures where we see good angels sent from God with messages.  Like Gabriel sent to Mary the mother of Jesus to tell her the good news that she had been chosen to carry God’s son.

What about these angels?   We know there are Good angels that obey God, and bad angels that follow Satan in doing all kinds of evil.

How do we tell the difference?  That is the tricky part.  God instructs us : (1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.)

I want to show you a few scriptures that seem clearly to indicate that those “posing” as aliens are actually deceivers and working for Satan.

Did you know that when Jesus was asked by His disciples about the signs of the end of the age – His biggest concern was – yep –  Deception.  So how could we be deceived by these dark angels?  Number one reason is that we do not know the TRUTH.  God gives us everything we need to recognize the plans of the evil one.  So Ignorance of God’s word is our greatest weakness.

Did you know that Jesus said the Satan and false apostles can appear as angels of light?  :  

(2 Corinthians 11:13-15     For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.  And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.)

Get that – Satan and fallen angels can take  the form of “religious, good, people, or even claim to be aliens from another planet or in touch with them.”   When you read what the end time false prophets and anti-christ can do – it may shock you.  Here is the scripture:   (Matthew 24:23-24      “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it.  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.  See, I have told you beforehand.)

The sad part there is that He says that “even the elect”  that is believers…..could possibly be deceived.  

That is why we must know our scriptures.  

I suggest that you read Revelation chapter 13, all of it  but here is part of it: 11-17 ….    (Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 1And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.  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.)

There is so much more and I hope you will continue to study.

My main purpose is that if these things begin to show up and claim to be from another planet and are here for our benefit.  Remember that Satan is the “father of lies” and called a “Deceiver”.  He hates God and he hates God’s created ones.  He wants total control.   Now I’m not saying that people are walking around that are fallen angels – but we know that people can be influenced and straight out possessed and used by these wicked spirits, and we need to be wise.   (Hebrews 13:1 talks about how they can take human form).   

Satan will come in this final hour as an Angel of light.  Seeming to have power, good answers for mankind, and with good intentions.  But after 3 1/2 years – anti-christ will seem to have a fatal wound –  and become the first human to be completely possessed by Lucifer AND he will demand that every human worship him and take his mark .   If a person does this and renounces Christ – he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

I know this is long and most of you already know this.  But I see so many scriptures being fulfilled right now.  (read Matthew 24).  I care about you and want you to be ready to NOT be deceived.  The key is…..now,   “Call on the name of the Lord,  (Jesus) and you will be saved”  Just call out to Him  “Lord save me, I am yours and accept all you have done to rescue me and prepare a place of goodness in heaven with you for eternity.  Thank you for taking the judgement that belonged to me as you hung on the cross.  Help me to know you as My Lord and keep me from the evil one and from decepton.”  Amen

REMEMBER AGAIN   ALIEN =  Fallen Angels  Don’t be fooled.

AS a side note – we know that angels in the Bible have been known to have “vehicles”  that go in and out of our dimension.  For example a “chariot of fire”  came down and took Elijah to heaven.   (2 Kings 2:11

Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.)

So if God’s good angels came to get Elijah in a chariot of fire.  What makes us think that the angels that rebelled and followed Satan wouldn’t know how to make and operate these vehicles too?

Don’t be fooled by these vehicles.  There may be lots of “unusual things”  as this age comes to an end and readies for the second coming of Jesus Christ as King of Kings and Lord of lords!!!!   Stick with God’s Word.  And always ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth.  He was sent specifically to be our “Helper, and Comforter”   Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

Blessings in Jesus Christ and How Awesome we are alive so close to HIs return!!!!  Be encouraged and Be Wise Students of His Word.

Maybe God allowed the churches to be shut – so that we could become “hot” in our private/personal relationships with Jesus. It is NOT good to be lukewarm. Many think they are not – but they are thinking about man’s definition of hot. God describes it as this…”they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of THEIR testimony for they loved not their lives even unto death” Rev. 2/3 America has been lukewarm for the most part. All of us can become “hotter” unashamed of our relationship with Jesus Christ. Caring less about what people think of us and more about pleasing the only One that is worthy of that kind of devotion. Can I get an Amen!

Revelation 3:15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

End Time Prophesy

Jesus said, “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony ….for they loved not their lives even unto death.”  Rev. 12:11

Here is mine ….   you really can be a regular person and live in the book of Acts!

STEP OUT – FLOW WITH IT!

March 13, 2020

The Lord gave me a Word for 2020  about the “harvest” for this time.  He showed me that He would be moving in “suddenlies” and “microbursts” from heaven and He will allow us to walk in them if we will be willing and obedient!!     For example – just yesterday, I simply drove by a bus stop and saw two young ladies waiting for the bus.  I kept driving – but the Holy Spirit would not let me go.  Long story short – I turned the car around and got out and approached them.  I simply opened with – hi ladies how are you doing?  My name is Jean and I have to tell you, I was driving by and I felt the Lord so strongly tell me to come back over here and let you know that “He loves you , knows your name, and He is thinking about you so strongly right now”……  then I just let the conversation flow…..and before long they were pouring out their stories –  one lady had recently lost her 21 year old son – can you imagine her pain????  Jesus knew – the other one had been getting bullyed at work…..  she needed to know Jesus cared.  My stopping “showed them Jesus was thinking about them”.  They happened to both be Christians that were really “under the darkness of depression”.   But God’s presence surrounded us.  I gave them messages and scriptures, prayer and lots of love. Simply speaking LIFE to them and HOPE.  The second one grabbed me and hugged me and held on so tight.  I felt God flowing so freely through that encounter with them.  Peace was tangible.  And when I had to leave – (the bus was coming)  those precious sisters had hope and light in their eyes.  AND JOY!!!  Simply put – we had church in the bus stop waiting booth!!!  The anointing was as strong and God as present as any “revival” meeting I’ve ever been to!!!  I encourage you –  take Him to the streets.   God is in you where ever you are.  Just Step Out!!!   Below are a few helpful hints.  I’ve been doing this since 1980 – and friends –  this feels like the outpouring of that time – but better, because Jesus Christ gets the glory.  It’s just you and me to do the job and we don’t need a platform or a TV camera.  We are doing this for an audience of ONE.  IT’s the last hour my friends , and we must bear fruit while we can!!!  YOU CAN DO THIS!!  CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY.     I Hope this practical advice helps…..  HOW TO HAVE A LIFESTYLE OF OUTREACH…..

  1. We must simply be “aware” that He intends to use us to reach the lost – right in our own surrounding areas.
  2. When we go out – to the store, gas station, for a walk, doctor’s office – anywhere.  We must be spiritually aware and looking for God to point out a divine appointment.
  3. We must have faith that the Holy Spirit and the angels of God have gone before us to set this up.
  4. When we feel that “tug” in our spirits – we must obey it.  Many times there will be dozens of people around in a store or parking lot – BUT my eyes will fall on one particular person and my spirit reacts – or I’ll sense the Holy Spirit saying  “that one”.  “That’s the Divine appointment now”
  5. At that moment I MUST obey.  Step over my flesh and take a risk.  I don’t have a “canned” speech.  Which I like.  But simply walk up and say something like  “Hello, my name is Jean, and I just really felt like God wanted me to come over here and tell you that He loves you so much and He knows what you are going through.  OR  “He sees you”  “He knows what you need”  or whatever seems to come out of my mouth.  I trust Him to fill it.
  6. Let it flow…..  after the first hello and statement – it usually takes on a life of it’s own.  “Is there anything I can pray for you about?”  Sometimes they are shy and say no.  But you just leave them with a prophetic awareness that God Himself is aware of them.  Other times – and more often than you can imagine – they burst into tears – or tell me that they are having such a hard time right now – to which I listen, and empathize and most of them let me pray on the spot.
  7. Each one is a beautiful piece of artwork.  Look deeply and feel God’s love for each one.  Speak life over them, hope over them, scriptures will come up.  Speak and prophesy over them if it comes up.
  8. Be sensitive to the moment.  Sometimes its a few minutes (I like bus stops and grocery store parking lots)  to plant some powerful words before they have to go.  But let me assure you – God will show up if you will just step out.
  9. TAKE A CHANCE.  Remember – some sow, some water, some reap –  anything you say is gonna bring their attention to God – their thoughts to God – even if its just brief –  when you leave them – the Holy Spirit stays and continues to complete what He began.
  10. My advice – just do it!!!  I have “bumbled” my way through so many “opening” statements – and God makes it work.  Don’t be afraid to let them know that God Himself has pointed them out to you!!  I often say – there are a dozen people in this parking lot and God pointed YOU out to me to come and tell you He loves you and He knows your name, and He is waiting to talk to you……   Some times I get to pray with them – sometimes it is just sowing seeds—-But remember who you are working with — the God that created them and loves them with His whole life, death and resurrection.  The person in front of you was and is worth all of that to Jesus.
  11. This is the year of the “Microburst”  2020     which the Lord defined to me as a sudden manifestation of God in the places you go.  Take Him to the streets my friends.  He is with you where ever you go.
  12. P.s.   I like to have salvation tracts to give them that explain how to be born again – just in case I don’t have time to explain – or it is a quick encounter.
  13. Don’t be afraid to PRAY for healing!  God has healed many people on the spot.  You can even ask them if they need prayer.  Don’t be afraid to flow in the gifts of the Spirit – like word of knowledge.  It blows them away when you know something about them that only God could have told you!!   ALWAYS SPEAK LIFE.  LOVE. PURPOSE to them.  They are starving for it!  What may seem simple and obvious to you – may be like a spring of living water to them.
  14. When you walk away from the encounter – trust God – you did well, because you gave the Holy Spirit something to work with in their lives.  IGNORE AND RESIST the devil , because he will try to convince you you missed it, or did a bad job.  Blow him off and do it again and again.  From now on.  Everywhere you go –  simply ask – Lord – is there a Divine appointment here?   Let the RAIN  fall on us Lord.  The former and latter rain –  with signs and wonders following
  15. People are scared out there.  Unloved.  And broken.  YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE THEM.  YOU HAVE THEIR CREATOR INSIDE OF YOU –   BE HIS MESSANGER TO A WOUNDED AND DYING WORLD – AND WATCH GOD FALL IN POWER WHEREVER YOU STEP OUT AND OPEN YOUR MOUTH.  Godspeed!!

Your sister in Christ,  Jean

THE HOUR OF THE 10 VIRGINS – SHORTLY BEFORE THE RETURN OF CHRIST

THIS IS THE HOUR WHERE YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN OIL.

Read again this important parable that the Lord Himself gave to us concerning the days just prior to His return:

Matthew 25:1-13

The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.  Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,  but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’  Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.  And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’  But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.

 “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’  But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”

Notice that Jesus said…..”I do not know you.”   These five foolish virgins had a lamp.  They were expecting the coming of the bridegroom.  They were hanging around the wise virgins.  But they did not have something the others did.  You see – NO ONE ELSE CAN GIVE YOU A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS!  They can lead you to it, tell you how to get one, instruct you how to have oil…..  but they can’t give you a relationship with the Master.  You have to get that all by yourself.  It is personal.  DON’T DELAY IN DEVELOPING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IN PRAYER, TALKING TO HIM, AND STUDYING THE WORD.  MEDITATE ON IT.  PUT IT IN YOU. PRAY IN FAITH BELIEVING THAT HE HEARS YOU AND WILL PREPARE YOU.

For the wise virgins …..strengthen yourselves and realize that you cannot do this for others.  You need to stop enabling those around you by doing the spiritual work for them. Help them by praying for them and pointing them into a relationship development of their own.  If you do not they will drain your lamp of oil and wear you out.  God does not expect or desire you to do that.  Your eyes are to be on the coming bridegroom.  Instruct others – but continue to face the door of the coming of your Savior.

The hour is late.  Strengthen what remains.  Do not enable others to be lazy in their walk with God. You are big hearted people, but some have taken advantage of your love and grace just as they do to God.  Pray always for mercy on those God has placed in our lives,  but cast your care on God.  Pray that God will open their eyes to their own need to seek God with all Their Hearts!!!

Rest in God and stay vigilant in His Word and prayer.  You will need all the oil you’ve gotten, through relationship with Him, knowledge of His Word, and being filled with the Holy Spirt, and obedience…. to walk in these last days, overcome,  and give Him glory.  Remember:   “If God is for us who can be against us….”

It’s not too late to get things right between you and God.  Seek and you shall find.  Seek Him with all your heart, fill your heart and soul,  and let your light shine.

God bless and shalom

Romans 7:24   “O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.”

Even the great Apostle Paul struggled with his flesh….we have to take up our crosses DAILY  and crucify the flesh and the lies of the enemy that try to defeat us.

God is for us!!  Every day we are in a battle – like lambs to the slaughter….but thank God that we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.  We get up –  ask forgiveness and know that each new day is a gift. You are a child of God and God doesn’t walk out on His children….He keeps helping them grow.  

So when Satan comes with condemnation – even if you blew it in an area.  Repent – and enjoy the forgiveness and fellowship bought and paid for by Christ.  Don’t let the devil steal your joy.  The Bible says:   “ His mercies are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness”   God’s grace and power is there to help you overcome sin and the flesh and the devil.   Don’t give up.  There is a crown awaiting overcomers and we are overcomers as long as we don’t quit.

Remember you were chosen to be alive at this time.  God has a plan to use you for His glory and He can’t wait to reward you.  He is a good Father.   I know we don’t do it for the reward….nevertheless He spoke and wrote it because it was important to Him that we know this.  The Bible teaches we will all throw our crowns at Jesus feet because He is so worthy.  He did for us what we could not ever do for ourselves and freely gave it to us!!  The ability to become the sons and daughters of God and part of His family forever.

If you get time read Romans 8 again.  It is packed with so much!

Love you all!!!  I am cheering you on in Christ and praying for you!!  I can see the beauty in you!! I can see you as the bride of Christ dancing before Him in the beauty of holiness. 

(Don’t cringe at that!  lol  I know you see all the sins you’ve lived in and don’t see how – one day at a time, one battle at a time.  I remember well the battles in the beginning! Keep going!!!!  There is special honor for end time believers that don’t give up and endure till the end!!  You’ll never be perfect….that’s not your goal…..to follow Jesus and His Word as best as you can and stay close to Him.  Never get caught up in the “doing”  ahead of just “being” with Him .  It’s out of relationship that change happens !!)   Many will be purified by these times – so stay close to Him and discover His peace that dwells deep inside of you no matter what happens in the world.  

“Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord.”   Zechariah 4

As we lean on Jesus……

Romans 8:31  If God is for us, Who can be against us.

Much love and prayers
