The Price of Doing God’s Will

Please understand this: God’s Kingdom runs now, and always will run, on obedience. The realm of His rule does not function as a democracy or even a plutocracy—that is one run by a few people elected to rule. The Infinite, Eternal and Everlasting Gone alone—through His Son Jesus and His Holy Spirit—alone is always in charge!

Yes, Christians are saved by grace, and once they invite The LORD Jesus into their hearts, they move spiritually out of Satan’s kingdom, and into God’s kingdom. As babes in Christ, new Christians are groomed in God’s ways through His Holy Word—IF they read it for themselves. As each believer grows up in God’s grace, He attempts to anoint each one to perform the gifts and callings He has planned for the individual Christian’s life. Unless that person is under strong anointing from God, no human being can tell anyone else what their calling from God is intended to be.

The LORD must have a clear channel of communication with each individual believer. Unrepentant sin and neglect of prayer and Bible study interfere with that communication. In addition, instead of listening to God, too many Christians start following people. Instead of waiting to hear God’s voice within their inner-man, they too often listen to man, or even to the sins and desires of the flesh and the devil. Such disobedience is costly, not only to ourselves, but, most important, to God’s essential plan for the Christian’s life as it is intended to affect others and the world.

For example, when God needed a king of Israel who would obey His instructions as given through Samuel, the anointed High Priest, Saul—who lived too much in the flesh of his own will and desires—completely ignored and disobeyed God’s instructions, as given to him through Samuel. Like too many believers today, Saul ended up doing ‘religious’ things that he determined to be good enough to please God. When Samuel finally caught up with Saul, the priest was aghast that Saul had tried to substitute doing man-made ‘religious’ activities instead of doing God’s will. Astonished at Saul’s rebellion, Samuel told the king one of the most important verses in Scripture:

“And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king (I Samuel 15: 22-23).”

Can you see this? God’s Word is telling Christians that refusal to obey Him is the same as practicing witchcraft! As The Body of Christ now

I really enjoyed working on these shots to bring out the detail in the clouds.

stands at the very end of time, it is urgent that all Christians get into God’s Word, pray often for God-given wisdom to know the calling on each Christian’s life. As the world spins toward destruction, only one thing holds that destruction back: The commanding word of Christians who walk in The Word and Will of God. As Apostle Paul writes in 2 Thessalonians:

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

“Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what with-holdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way (2: 3 – 7).”

The Greek Words “let” and “letteth” mean stop or stops. Thus it is the Spirit-filled believer, or believers, in the Body of Christ who alone have ability to keep their foot down hard on the devil’s neck. They alone—among human beings—have the power and authority to tell the devil and his angels to cease and desist! When a believer lets his guard down, evil runs wild in the world. So let’s get to work in prayer, fasting, reading and meditating on God’s Word and always doing His absolute Will!

Step One in 2018—A Flood of Snow!

Floods are coming, unmitigated floods which cannot be stopped!! As in 2017, fires on the one hand, earthquakes on the other, floods of disaster upon disaster, because God—Our Heavenly Father, The Supreme Ruler of the Universe, Father of Our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ—is calling on America to repent!

He has been good to us—bringing this nation from the miracle of a few praying Christians and releasing them from the rule of those who thought they would profit from this land, while giving us victory through three great wars to set ourselves and others free—i.e. the Civil War and World Wars I and II—to establish this country as the greatest nation on earth.

But now, Americans seems to have forgotten where we came from. Now enriched, we sneer at His laws, breaking them whenever we want to—whether by cursing Him, or with acts of disobeying His every Word and Commandment—even by preaching His Word while not attempting to live it. Most of all, we never, ever fully repent. We refuse to love one another, by crossing racial and economic divisions to show love and compassion toward those who are ‘different’.

We refuse to stop wasting His treasure on the plans of a few vicious people: i.e. trillions on ‘space’ exploration, neo-gene alterations to produce super-non-human beings, and other pseudo-sciences—all of which are designed to save only a few people, but everyone! Simultaneously, we refuse to take care of the poor, insisting that they work to improve their lot, while stealing work from them to give to those from other countries, and denying them sufficient education!

Never fully repenting, we refuse to see the swords of His mighty angels turned against as they weld in these floods of storms, fires and multiple devastating attacks. All because we refuse to fully repent! Remember this Word in wholesale Christian Bibles, so well known in pseudo-Christian circles: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7: 14).”

What else can God do to bring this nation back to Him? He blesses us and we accept it without saying thanks, because that is what we come to expect from His grace. Our pride keeps our knees straight, rather than bowing in prayer. We have turned many churches into whore houses, where smoking thieves can steal all they want, while sleeping with each other’s wives, women, children and men. But we accept it all as ‘Christianity,’ while we refuse to repent, to admit we have wrongfully allowed His beloved Gospel to come out of such sinful institutions.

Have we not read His Word? Do we not know that such behavior and hard-heartedness is what drove Israel into slavery twice? They are the first children of Abraham. How can we, the second set of Abraham’s children, not see that we will also receive His severest whippings for not repenting?

This new year of 2018 , believers will witness unprecedented horrors upon souls and properties! Pray, repent, ask His forgiveness for many sins—and name them one by one. If you are a true Christian, take time to pray and repent for your nation, just as Daniel, Nehemiah and others did! Without such prayers and repentance, things will get worse, not better!
