When God Says Thanks

When God Says Thanks!
A Fabulous Message from Roland Buck

There is tremendous joy in my heart, knowing that God cares enough for his people to give them divine guidance and direction. I also feel a profound responsibility to bring to the world the truths which God has placed upon my heart. These are biblical facts which many of us know, but to have God articulate them so clearly and call our attention to them by angelic messengers and other supernatural means, adds an extra weight!

These experiences the Lord has allowed me to have a part in and to share have not been just empty dreams or imaginations. Every time God has dealt with me, he has brought the Word of God to me with great force and supporting power.

On his first visit to me, this angel spoke of three main areas. The first was God’s character, what he is really like, the desires of his heart toward people, and the things that are important to God. The second was our position in God, and third, he wanted me to remind you of the preparation for that great judgment day!

The first area is summarized in the chapter on ‘Good News For You and Your Family!

The second area is the position from which God sees us, and this is covered in the chapter on the ‘Atonement.’ I asked him, “Where in the Bible can I actually see this at work?” and God said, “I have had it recorded. You can read it in Numbers” (Numbers 23:21), and he told me exactly what it meant. He let me know that the sacrifice that Israel had put their trust in, was a type of the great sacrifice of Christ in which we put our faith, and that it made them accepted by God between the yearly sacrifices.

I had read through the Bible many times and had never seen this beautiful truth of God, stating that he looks at man from a different level than man himself does. God’s eyeview is on the top side of this covering; man’s eyeview is on the underside.

This has been referred to practically every time God has dealt with me. God wants us to know our position in him. As we desire to live for him, and we WANT him as our Lord, the blood covering is there! He sees us through the covering as the flowers and trees which he has planted himself. He sees us like Christ because we are accepted in him, all wrapped up and covered in his love. With our faith in him, he wants us to know this position. He wants us to know that the day is coming which the Apostle Paul spoke of in 2 Timothy 1:12 where he said, “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” This will be a day of beauty and a day of reward!

God wants us to be aware of what is important to him. When we know how much he cares about certain things, then we will want to care about them. He says, “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke”? (Isaiah 58:6-7).

God wants us to be interested in the things he is interested in, and that is people! “Is it not to deal your bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? when you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh?” God is giving us an inside picture of his heart. He is telling us about the things that are REALLY important!

He said people are doing a lot of things that are “good” things, necessary things, things of this life, and things that need to be done. They have a real value while in this life, so they are not worthless. They have a reason here, but they are not all things which are going to remain. He mentioned specifically certain books which people spend all their time writing, books which may have value, but do not meet the needs of people.

Singing performances, unless directed to the need of a life, are temporary and will not go on. Even sermons that are preached which can be giving out information, may be preached to a CROWD of people, but not to the NEED of the people! These may help to guide and motivate people and steer them in a certain direction, but they will not be something that actually remains.

Buildings have a great purpose, but God doesn’t need buildings. He has buildings which put those in this old world to shame.

He spoke about ‘giving’ campaigns. He said if you give for credit, you get your reward here, but not in heaven. Often an individual’s missionary vision has been hurt because of a desire for credit or recognition. It is all right if people have to be motivated, but this kind of giving is not going down in God’s book. He wants giving from the heart! These are the exact words the angel used: “These things may have satisfying reward in this life, and they are important, but they will not remain.”

“What will remain?” I questioned. He referred to Philippians 4:17-18 where Paul told them to bring a gift out of their want. It wasn’t that he desired that they bring a gift to him, but as he said, “I desire fruit that many abound to your account.” So, when this book is open, it will show that these people did something special, not for reward here, but for the Lord.

In John 15:16, Jesus’ prayer was that the fruit of your life should remain. God wants us to have something that is in the book forever, because he loves us so very much!

I’m sure this ministering angel has been with me many times before. While I was in the hospital many years ago, I heard a voice while I was very, very sick. The message that came to me almost every day was: “Strengthen those things that remain.” Today he is talking about the same thing. He wants us to strengthen those things that last forever.

People are special to God. If you want to know where God lives on this earth, look where people are and you will find his address because God lives where people are hurting. He wants to help them. He involves himself with the needs of people. It is when we get down on the level of human need and take a person into our hearts and actually meet their need that something is written down in our book in heaven.

Other things may help, but the fruit he wants is your personal love, your personal help, and your personal concern. When you see an individual hurting and your own heart actually hurts with them, this is when you care!

Recently, I asked the children in my church, “What is Jesus like?” Look at their answers:

“Jesus is somebody who loves to help you.”

“If you are hungry, he will provide food.”

“If you are sick, he wants you well!”

“He loves you!”

This is the way little children understand the message from God. God’s desire is that we be like Jesus and we will always find him moving in the areas of human need.

The angel spoke about personal involvement with our own family – with our own flesh and blood. Not what we DO for them, but what we ARE to them. What they mean to us! Some members of our own family may have been real “stinkers.” They may have taken advantage of us. They may have lied to us, and we said, “I’m writing that person off.” God doesn’t want us to hurt that person; he wants our heart to go out and love them and help them in every way we possibly can. That is God’s nature.

This message applies not only to our own family, but to the family of God. In Galatians 6:10, it is written that God desires for us to do good to all men, especially to the household of God. He wants us to represent Jesus and to be like him. This is what is recorded in our heavenly account. We can help that person who is lonely! We can help that person who is hurting! We can help that person who may be filled with frustration! Jesus said, “Inasmuch as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me” (Matthew 25:40). These are the deeds which are written in our book.

The angel said it was more important to be like Jesus in meeting the area of a person’s need, than to be witnessing to people about salvation. That really surprised me. We have become so conditioned to the idea that we aren’t doing anything for God unless we are able to get out and witness and to skillfully use the Word. But this angel said, “When you are helping people, you become a living word to them which says, ‘I care and God cares for you!'” That doesn’t mean we exalt ourselves as Jesus; it simply means Jesus is living his life through us. We become a word that is alive to them, not a dead, printed word, but a living word. This is something we can do, and it is more important than witnessing, quoting scripture or teaching. Instead of witnessing, we BECOME a witness of what Jesus is really like.

This is something everyone can do! We don’t have to have a special talent to lay up treasure in heaven. Any Christian can make a deposit in the bank of heaven every day, because there are people who need help every day! When we care for them, we are bringing the heart of God to them in their place of need. When we do this for God, something goes into our account!

While we are waiting for the coming of Jesus, let’s get out and get our book full, not doing it for that specific reason, but doing it because that is the way God’s heart beats for people. When we are close to him, we will feel the same way. Things which are done because of his love and his Spirit in us are placed in our account in the archives of heaven!

In Matthew 25:35-40, Jesus taught that when we feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, and do a service to people, we are doing this as unto him. This includes a visit to a rest home to cheer up a person who is depressed, or caring for a little child whose mother is so weary she can hardly stand. When we have been tired ourselves, but have said, “I want to share this load with you,” and haven’t looked for a reward, we are doing this as unto Jesus. These deeds are recorded in the book!

We will be doing what Jesus did when we show kindness to individuals by helping them feel their worth when they have been beaten down and are depressed, when their self-worth and their self-esteem has been crushed.

God cares for people, and the only way people will know that he cares is through you and me. That is why it is so important for us to know what he is like. God said not to glory in wealth, or wisdom, or might, or other things of this world, but to glory in this, that you know God, that he is a God of justice and a God filled with kindness.

People often get their thinking confused. They think the only things you do for God are what you do in a spiritual way. When we minister, it might be hard to relate to a person’s spirit, but it’s not hard to relate to their physical needs, their bodies and their emotions. Jesus always ministered to both spiritual and physical needs.

For example, one day a man came into my office who was involved in homosexuality, a way of life that I hate. I had a real battle with myself. He didn’t want prayer and he wouldn’t even admit his need for deliverance from homosexuality, but he was hungry. He hadn’t had any food for a while. I had to ask myself, “What would Jesus do?” I knew that Jesus would separate the man from his sin, so I did the same, and in peeling away the vileness, I found the signature of God. This man was hungry!

Jesus said, “If your enemy hungers, give him to eat.” I have to confess I had a hard time because I thought about people who deserved food more than he did, so I told him, “I know what your life is. You cannot hide it, but you are hungry, and God cares about that, and I care.” Then I provided food for him.

I didn’t do it to get something recorded, but I know that act of kindness is in God’s book. I wasn’t doing it for that reason, but when you feel the working of the Spirit in your heart, he gives you love for people, and that is your motive. For “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance” (Galatians 5:22). All of these are traits of God which reach out to people.

I wish I had known a long time ago how God feels about people and how much he loves them. When Jesus walked on this earth, he was searching for people in need, and he is still looking for them. He has multitudes of emissaries walking around, and is saying to them, “I want you to get out there where the need is.” When we have lovingly prepared a meal for someone who has been sick, and have brightened up their day by caring, something is being written down in that book.

Caring for those who are not in the family of God is also important. We care when we help the fatherless and the widows who don’t know which way to turn because they can’t find direction. God said through this angel, “This is pure religion and it is undefiled. This is what will last and be recorded in the archives of heaven.”

I remember some of those hell, fire and brimstone evangelistic sermons that used to make straight hair curl, trying to scare people into heaven. I heard one man say, “God takes all the sins that he is holding in reserve against you and holds them over your head to keep you going straight!” Then he would thunder on, “You’re going to have to face every sin because they are all written down in your book and held in reserve. On the day of judgment, God is going to take a big screen and projector and show all your sins to the world, including your family and friends.” Then he said, “The wrongs that you did before you were saved are all forgiven, but everything you do after you are saved is kept in reserve to be held against you.” People really squirmed when they heard a message like that, and it seemingly moved some people toward God, but praise God, it isn’t true!

As the angel gave me this message, he said that this is in conflict and contrary to the character of God. When you confess your sin, he destroys it, wipes it out, and says he will never, never remember it again. If you have been deceived into believing that on that glorious day of judgment a lot of condemnation is going to be brought against you, I have good news for you! It simply will not happen that way. It’s going to be a BEAUTIFUL day when, instead of judgmental condemnation, God says, “THANKS!”

Christ is our foundation. Nothing can move him. Your faith and trust in Jesus puts you on a foundation that can never be destroyed. God tells us that all we have done which is like Jesus will be permanent and lasting.

Luke said (Luke 3:17) that God is going to separate the chaff from the wheat on that day. He is looking for the kernel that is going to last! The angel actually made the statement that “God is not interested in the chaff.” He has no use for it; he is removing it from your life so only that which is perfect, that which is like Jesus, will remain. All he is interested in is what is inside of that chaff – he wants that little kernel and is going to remove the shell and find the life inside that will last forever! Hallelujah!

In 1 Corinthians 3:12, the apostle Paul made reference to the foundation that is going to last forever: “Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work will be made manifest (exposed): for the day shall declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.” He refers to the removal and burning of the chaff, revealing that which will last forever.

The things of this life are going to pass away on that great judgment day, but to the believer it will be a time of great reward where God brings praise to his people. There is not going to be a person present at this believers’ judgment who will hear one harsh word of condemnation, because Jesus has already paid our penalty through his death.

As the light of heaven begins to glow before us, and the things of this earth begin to melt and fall away, there is going to emerge a body of believers from all different levels of spiritual growth and spiritual life. All of the things which are transitory are going to be gone, and those who have pleased God will stand on that firm foundation in the eyes of God!

This day is special to God. It is a day that he has looked forward to for a long time. This is the day Paul talked about when he said he knew he could trust God to keep those things which he had committed to him against that day! He continues in 1 Corinthians 4:5 where he says, “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have PRAISE OF GOD!” “At that time God will give to each one whatever praise is coming to him” (TLB).

Every person is going to hear those words, “Thank you, thank you! You did a good job.” Some people do more than others, but EVERYBODY there will have praise of God.

“Then shall EVERY man have praise of God.” The apostle Paul said that the day was going to declare it. All the beautiful things God has written down for you are going to be known on that glorious day. God doesn’t do things that aren’t important, so think what it will mean to him when he takes your hand as you stand before him, looks you in the eye, and says “Thanks! Thanks for all those things you did for me!” Every Christian is going to hear those words, “Thank you! You did a good job!”

My human mind could not comprehend how God could ever say thank you to me. I shall never forget the awesomeness of the moment when the angel told me that on that glorious day, God would say those words, because it is beyond my ability to understand that God could love me so much that he would every say, “Thank you, Roland Buck!”

I asked the angel to explain what is meant by “things of darkness and the counsels of the hearts,” and this was his answer: “God will shine his light on the hidden corners of the hearts of those who have served him because of their love, not expecting thanks. For these things, too, they will hear God say thanks.” This does not mean in relation to evil deeds. The angel referred to it as the beautiful, but hidden things that people have not known about your life. God is going to tell you good things that you don’t even know about yourself! He knows all of your thoughts, and even those good thoughts are worthy of praise!

I don’t know when Jesus is coming. How I wish the angel had given me some indication, but he didn’t. Events pointing toward his coming are happening fast, however, and angels are moving hindrances out of the way. People are being moved about and touched by God more than I have ever witnessed before.

Many more people are going to be saved and turn to God when they see us doing God’s work for him by meeting their needs, than when we are trying to put the “bee” on them for salvation. People are spiritually hungry. They are longing for someone who actually becomes a living word expressed right in front of them. This is something everyone can do, not just a few skilled people, because we can all beam out that love of God.

(Webmasters note: Just as I was typing this section out I heard the garbage truck outside my house. It’s more than 90 degrees out there at the moment. I quickly ran downstairs and opened my garage door, carrying two ice-cold coca-colas in my hand. One of the young collectors immediately spotted my intent and ran over, covered in sweat, and with a smile and a thank you gladly accepted the cool drinks for he and his hard working partner. “I appreciate all your help,” I said, and retrieved my empty trash can. It was rather painless – you can do it too. Nice timing Lord … Praise God!)

When you know God is going to say “thanks” to you some day, doesn’t it make you feel like finding someone in need and helping them?

God has put great emphasis on family relationships through these messages brought by the angels. Maybe you have some members of your family you haven’t talked to for a long time. Why not give them a call and say, “I’m excited! I believe our circle up there is going to be unbroken because God is working to bring whole families to himself.” Sometimes the people in our own family seem to be the most difficult ones to talk to, but among the easiest to whom we can show the love of Jesus.

What this world needs is Jesus! Just a glimpse of him, and it is through us that they can see him.

The last thing the angel said on this subject was that the real desires of our heart and the longings that we have in this life will be met when we take care of another’s need in the place of Jesus. The angel stated that we could see what God’s interests really are in the fifty-eighth chapter of Isaiah. I read it, and sure enough, it was written right there in the Bible just as he had been telling me.

“No, the kind of fast I want is that you stop oppressing those who work for you and treat them fairly and give them what they earn. I want you to share your food with the hungry and bring right into your own homes those who are helpless, poor and destitute. Clothe those who are cold and don’t hide from relatives who need your help. If you do these things, God will shed his own glorious light upon you. He will heal you; your godliness will lead you forward, and goodness will be a shield before you, and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. Then when you call, the Lord will answer. ‘Yes, I am here,’ he will quickly reply. All you need to do is to stop oppressing the weak, and to stop making false accusations and spreading vicious rumors! Feed the hungry! Help those in trouble! Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you shall be as bright as day. And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden, like an everflowing spring” (Isaiah 58:6-11 TLB).

At the same time you are reflecting Jesus by these acts of kindness, let the message of salvation bubble out of you like a well-watered garden, like an everflowing spring. This is what Jesus did. He never forgot the spiritual needs of people, and neither can we! Both are vital!

When we are giving love and concern to people, God is writing in the archives of heaven those acts for which he will say to each of us, “THANKS!”

Isn’t it almost more than our finite minds can understand to know that on that great day, God will greet us with a big welcome and say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Thanks!”

A Change In Priorities

A Catalyst for Conquest?
What Does It Take for Allegiance to Change

One of Tribulation-Now’s most valued contributors (Jeff D.) has been following the news emerging from Russia.  Many of you may already know about this, but some may not.  Furthermore, the question has surfaced as to how these events might lead to a “change of allegiance” during a global war scenario.

For example, most of us are relatively certain that the forthcoming war with Iran will escalate to Biblical proportions.  Not only is this a likely prerequisite to the unfolding of end-times Biblical prophetic events, but the “masterminds” behind the New World Order such as Alexander Pike and Manly P. Hall have come right out and said World War III is part of the global takeover agenda.  Then never mind Nostradamus and his surreal predictions associated with WWIII complete with an intergalactic UFO battle taking place across the globe.

Then you have to consider the mixed reports of “stated” allegiances associated with the forthcoming Iran conflict.  On one hand you have reports surface suggesting that Russia and China have agreed to “some extent” that Iran “sanctions” are reasonable.  However on the other hand you have foreign press releases that clearly state that Russia and China are not “on board” with the concept of a full Iranian “take over” plan and have even warned they might retaliate if such a strategic war initiative were to unfold and escalate.

And what if …

What if Russia’s leadership was “on the fence” about supporting the global take-over initiative?  What if their primary instinct was to let the New World Order master global takeover plan unfold while holding their ground?  AND WHAT IF … some unforeseen tragedy occurred in their country and “spread like wildfire” forcing them to consider their “options” as the Iran conflict unfolded?

Is it possible these wild fires did not break out naturally?  It is possible the associated dryness of the climate and this wide spread catastrophe was orchestrated from the “ionosphere”?

Is it possible Russia might “shift allegiance” and take a serious look at moving their center of operations to another part of the globe?
One can only speculate.

I present to you …

The Russian Wildfire and Radiation Catastrophe

Radiation, plague, and fires: foreign embassies urgently evacuate staff from Russia

Publication time: 7 August 2010, 13:52

A hasty evacuation of diplomatic staff from foreign embassies, like a stampede, began in Moscow. Many embassies are trying to hide the evacuation for political reasons. Mass evacuation of the embassies of Canada and Poland was officially reported at night on August 7.

Western media meanwhile reported that the Canadian embassy in Moscow was closed. Dutch embassy is urgently evacuating its diplomatic staff from Russia.

High level of air pollution (see photo), as one of the consequences of forest fires, has become an official ground for evacuating embassy staff and their family members.

Unofficially, they speak about plague in Russia, but first of all, about sharply elevated radioactive background in the city, caused by destruction of atomic bombs in fires at nuclear weapons arsenals outside Moscow. According to unofficial information, warehouses of chemical and bacteriological weapons were also burnt down.

The final decision on immediate evacuation of foreign diplomats from Russia was made after the ringleader of the Russian terrorist gang Disaster Ministry, Shoigu, said that “the level of radiation may increase in Bryansk region because of fires” (the soil there is still very strongly contaminated by Chernobyl).

Sophisticated diplomats immediately understood the diplomatic slang, familiar to them, and rushed to pack baggage, Russian media reported.

Google Earth Image of Wide Spread Firestorms Across Russia

Early in the morning of 7 August, the escape of foreign diplomats from Russia took epidemic proportions. It is possible that the diplomats, through the intelligence services of their countries, know something that is not yet known to the general public.

Germany officially closed its embassy and evacuated the entire staff from the doomed Russian Empire, media outlets reported. Austria, along with Poland and Canada, is evacuating almost all its staff from Russia. Foreign embassies addressed to their citizens got stuck in the country to leave Russia as soon as possible.

A Hamburg newspaper, Die Welt, reported in a clear text format that the urgent flee of German diplomats from Russia was caused by radiation approaching Moscow.

The radiation, according to the newspaper, comes from facilities for the production of atomic bombs (400 km east of Moscow) burning in Sarov. Emission of radiation in the environment continues.

On the territory “of the atomic research center,” as this plant is officially called, two fires are still raging, the newspaper writes. Russians cannot conceal facts, since fires are perfectly visible from satellites.

God’s Special Forces

-David Wilkerson.

You’ve heard of the U.S. Army’s Special Forces-a highly trained army-within-an-army, an elite unit of dedicated soldiers. Special Forces are made up completely of volunteers, fighters who have been noticed and called out by their superiors.

Before the war in Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden had said American soldiers were weak, cowardly, not trained for mountain warfare. He predicted the Taliban would send U.S. troops home in shame, but he hadn’t counted on America’s Special Forces. This fearless unit invaded Afghanistan with a mere 2,000 soldiers. Within days, it had located all the enemy’s strongholds.

I believe God is doing something similar in the spiritual realm. While in prayer, I was impressed by the Holy Spirit with the concept-God has been at work in the heavenlies on a covert operation. He’s raising up an army-within-an-army, searching his regular troops to form an elite unit of volunteers.

This special force is made up of warriors he can touch and stir, to do battle with the enemy. We see a picture of this in the Bible, with Saul’s special militia. The Word tells us, “There went with him a band of men, whose hearts God had touched” (I Samuel 10:26).

God’s special forces today include the young, the middle-aged, even the elderly. They’ve been training in their secret closets of prayer. Their intimacy with Jesus has taught them how to fight. Now they know how to do battle on any spiritual plane, whether in the mountains or in valleys.

God’s army-within-an-army is in place in every nation. Its activity may be covert now, but soon we’ll see it doing exploits in the name and power of Christ. God’s Word is coming forth, and the famine is ending. The Lord will prevail. His Word shall conquer all.

“The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32).

“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

Tearing Down Strongholds

You Don’t See It?
Who cares … Just Do It

Somehow we all have to “let go” of this “seeing is believing” nonsense and become the spiritual warriors that Jesus intended us to become.  Lately I’ve been bombarded with questions like “what do I do if this happens?” or “how do I get started?”

The truth of the matter is this.  We simply cannot allow ourselves to get caught in the traps associated with having to see immediate results.  This problem is something that gets in the way of our success as doers of Jesus’ commands.  If you think about it, we tend to need feedback all the time.  We assume no progress is being made when we don’t get immediate results.  And we think that just because the results we got are bad, or different than we thought they should be, we didn’t do any good.  Both of these concepts are misconceptions.

Amazing Testimonies, Supernatural Results

There are so many testimonies out there, its impossible to discredit them.  It’s fascinating how many “Christians” will be doubtful of divine healing until they witness the results in person.  As a teenager I was taken along with my mother from one healing convention to another.  In the beginning of such services you can watch the “doubting Thomases'” in the congregation. 

People are called from the audience usually by their “sickness” but sometimes by their names.  At first it’s easy to think that it might be staged.  Most of the time someone in the audience is identified by their ailment, and you hear a “shout of joy” not too dissimilar from the winner of “The Price is Right” game show.  There’s a lot of energy in the air.  People are looking around, people are crying, people are praising Jesus. 

Some still don’t believe.

But after awhile the “stone faced” people start to soften up.  They begin to realize there are simply too many people being affected for it to be staged.  While it’s no big deal for 5 or 10 people to be “planted” in the audience, it’s strategically impossible for the multitudes being affected to all be “in on the game”. 

And while most of the time those who claim a healing are simply “tearful testimonies”, there is always that series of undeniable events that defy rational explanation.  Inevitably something happens that just “blows your mind”.  It’s one thing when a person’s scoliosis curved back “snaps” audibly into place and they cry out in amazement and tears, its another thing when a sick cancer patient who is barely able to sit straight in their wheel chair, gets up and starts walking around and jumping about.

But What About the Unseen Affect

The unseen affect of prayer, healing, and spiritual warfare may be the most dramatic of all … but we can’t see it.  The only time you hear about it is when someone speaks up, and much of it you will never see OR hear about.  Many of us believe that prayer was the reason “this or that” occurred.  But if we had any idea how POWERFUL our efforts have been in the unseen world of the “demonic”, we would spend far more time “DOING” than just watching and listening.  But we simply don’t “see it” so we “think” it probably didn’t make a difference.  Arguably that is the greatest single travesty of a “so called” believers existence.

The number of testimonies out there in regard to this “unseen” dynamic are too numerous to count.  We have to embrace the “Johnny Appleseed” paradigm and just “throw seeds everywhere”.  But you have to use a logical strategy and not make a complete ASS of yourself.  You do no one any good by making a scene in a public place so the rest of us have to suffer by virtue of your “show boating”.  There are hospitals full of sick people that would be overwhelmed with joy if you stopped by to lay hands on them.

I will leave you with two testimonies of the unseen for this thought, but I have so many there is simply no time or space to share them all.

Unseen Testimony # 1

I was praising Jesus with all my might as I was leaving the parking lot of a supermarket.  A man with a motorized wheel chair was riding along the sidewalk on the other side of the road.  He had a little boy dancing about his chair as he somberly road along.  It was strongly “impressed upon my heart” to stop my car and pray for that man.  When you “get” such a feeling you best pay attention.  Ignoring God is not a good plan if you expect to live a reasonably trouble free life.

I pulled my car nearby the man and rolled down my window.  I said to him briskly, “Sir would you allow me to pray for you?”  He stopped his wheel chair and looked at me for a moment and said “sure”.   I walked over to him and explained that I needed to lay my hands on him and he agreed.  I read the following “alive” scripture out loud to the gentleman.

Mark 16:16-18

He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”


Then I asked him what ailed him.  I needed to know what I was dealing with in order to “cast it out” of him and “command” the sickness to heal.  This was between me, possibly the demons, the sickness, and the POWER OF JESUS in me.  Nothing else mattered.  The man was a victim.  The sickness is / was the enemy and it needed to be destroyed in Jesus name.

He told me what was wrong with him.  He said “I have cancer all over my body”.  And I froze momentarily realizing I was facing a most difficult situation.  But I went ahead and did what Jesus told me to do.  The man didn’t jump out of his chair and yell “Hallelujah I’m healed”.  He simply said “thank you” and started to move down the road with his little boy by his side.

Where is this man today?  I don’t know.  Is this man recovering?  I don’t know.  Was the reason I was supposed to pray for that man because of the effect it had on his little boy?  I don’t know.  Did I do it anyway … AMEN PRAISE JESUS I DID.

Unseen Testimony # 2

Curry Blake testifies during his Divine Healing training DVD series that he and one of his friends went to a nearby “place of nuisance”.  It was a local bar that was the epicenter of Sodom-esque behavior like no other in his town.  He pushed himself to the front of the very long line and took “holy oil” and consecrated the building to Jesus Christ.  He placed a small dab of the oil above the door, and on either side, and said “In the Name of Jesus I consecrate this building to you LORD GOD”.  People thought he was nuts.  He walked away, got in his car, and went home.

Two weeks later the bar closed.


I highly recommend, if you haven’t done so already, you get with our Message Board’s “Loving Overseer” and associate administrator “Aaron”.  Never mind the “Mount Ebal” story from the Old Testament and the Rabbinical explanations behind it.  Never mind the fact that his name is Aaron which means “the exalted one” in Hebrew.  But if you haven’t heard what has been happening to his sick body as he has been helping us with this ministry, you have got to email him and hear this story … it is SHOCKING.  Jesus is taking the blessings he is pouring out on his sheep, and bouncing them “right back” on Aaron’s body and effecting a divine healing “process” that is nothing less than miraculous.

You can reach him at this email here:

Your “work” must “Bear Fruit”

Pastor Chuck Missler, in his training series on the principle of “Inheritance” suggests, and rightfully so, our greatest disappointment in Heaven will be when we realize what “we COULD HAVE done” … but didn’t do.  Don’t forget you have to stand before your King, who was severely beaten nearly to death and hung on a cross, while your “work” is tested by fire.  What this means is your work must “bear fruit” in order to pass the test.  For example, if you took someone to the altar to be saved and they said the sinners prayer but didn’t establish a relationship with Jesus and never really “loved him” then your “work” did not “bear fruit”. 

1 Cor 3:9-15

For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. 10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.


I know that’s a harsh reality to face, and I have had “panic attacks” realizing how little I have done for our King, but the opportunity you have before you today is AMAZING. We simply can no longer afford to just sit around on our duffs studying prophecy, debating “time lines”, watching You Tube videos, reading books, and publishing articles (like I do), and hope we get a “win” here or there.

We must DO what Jesus told us to do.

Grab Your Orgone Supersoaker and Teak Spears!

As this “alien-demon” threat continues to emerge into a more sinister reality, many people are considering alternative spiritual warfare / physical warfare “methodologies”.  The use of the term “physical” only applies to the “esoteric” concepts of technological “energy” fields and possibly the use of whacky things like “teak spears” for reptlians. 

While many of us are wondering what bizarre secrets Thomas Horn might have woven into his forthcoming book, we probably need to take some pause.  For example, while there is “no question” that “orgone energy” has scientific merit if you study the material and papers, the POWER of the Holy Spirit is a “proven” means to rid yourself of the enemy’s affects and must NEVER take a back seat to alternative possibilities.

If you believe you will be here on earth long enough to come face to face with some of these “manifestations” then you probably need to consider all your options.  But quite frankly if you do not “stir up your spirit” and magnify our Holy Spirit Jesus given power, then I suspect when your “orgone supersoaker” runs out of water, you will be in a “hill of crap”.

Move Your Bum!

Let’s briefly examine what God is saying to Moses and the Hebrews in Exodus in chapter 14.

Ex 14:15-16

15 And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.



Moses was God’s “right hand man”!  Moses and God were like “buds”.  They hung out together.  They talked together.  They planned things together.  Moses even had the nerve to get God to “change His mind”.  But wait a minute, I thought God never changed!  But he does.  God fundamentally doesn’t change but he darn sure can “change his mind” if you talk to Him.  And look what God, the CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE(S) says to Moses his “pal”, his “main man”!

Let’s take another look at that verse with a 2010 spin on the meaning.

Ex 14:15-16

15 And the Lord said to Moses, “You BIG CRY BABY MOSES, what is your MAJOR MALFUNCTION?  You tell those people I HAVE CHOSEN, to GET A MOVE ON!”

(New John Baptist Translation)

Now in the grand scheme of things, what do you think this means to you and I?

Got a guess?

Got Milk?

Whoops I mean … “Got MEAT?”


So what have YOU done for God lately?  Hmmmm.  It’s time to get busy.  While God has predestined and chosen many of us there are arguably thousands if not millions of people that he has had trouble reaching.  It is our DUTY to capture those people’s attention and “nudge them” in the right direction.  You don’t want to have their fate on our conscience when all hell breaks loose.  You need to start “planting seeds”.

But what else can you do?  Well think about what Jesus told you to do.  Go, Preach, The Kingdom of God is at Hand, Heal The Sick, Cleanse the Lepers, Cast out Devils.  Just DO IT.

But how?  What can we actually do without getting arrested or fired from our jobs?

Okay – here are some ideas.  And do NOT THINK for a moment that these efforts will have no effect.  That is an utterly ridiculous notion if you claim to be a follower of your KING, Jesus Christ.

  1. Organize prayer meetings and stop with the “nebulous” unfocused prayer nonsense.  Call me crazy, but it sure looks to me like these vague “prayers for our country” are not having any affect.  Instead why don’t you target your prayers.  Pray for the children in bondage in the DUMBs to be freed.  Pray for God’s wrath to directly thwart the specific efforts of the New World Order.  Direct your prayer power at the enemy.  Take them DOWN in JESUS NAME.  GET ANGRY.
  2. Look for an opportunity to “lay hands” on someone and pray for their healing.  Spend a little money on the Divine Healing Technician training program offered by John G. Lake Ministries and learn how to COMMAND the power of Jesus to heal someone.  Quietly ask someone in a Walmart if they would mind if you quietly pray for them.  You will be amazed at how many people are THRILLED you offered.  And the “unseen” effect can not be underestimated.
  3. Target Demonic Strongholds – Get yourself some oil and ask our Heavenly Father to bless that oil in the Name of Jesus our King.  Go to a demonic stronghold and “consecrate” that building to Jesus.  Give that structure to Jesus and his work.  Find yourself a Masonic Lodge.  Go consecrate the building to your KING.  If you are afraid to walk up to the front door to put holy oil there, then put the holy oil on the entryway to the sidewalk, and on the corners of the property. 

The effect of these efforts on a grand scale can be utterly amazing.  The possible effects on the demonic world are FABULOUS.

Think about this amazing testimony.

While I cannot remember the specific radio talk show, a Christian spiritual warfare specialist was being interviewed.  During the interview a Satanist called the show.  He explained that he was a high level priest and told the Christian he was delusional and had no power.  The Christian simply answered as follows:

“In Jesus Name, I command your powers to have NO EFFECT”.

The Satanist laughed and called him an idiot.   He hung up the phone.

Before the radio show had ended, believe it or not, the same Satanist called back freaking out and demanding his power be returned to him.


Folks, think about this.  Can you imagine what a fabulous advantage we have by living in the “end times” for real?  This is not a false alarm.  Those of you reading the information on this web site know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are “just around the corner” from some unbelievable events.  We are not the church of Thessalonika imagining we missed Christ’s return.  We KNOW it is time.  We KNOW it’s the SEASON.  How can you plan on facing your King Jesus Christ and look him in the eyes and have NOTHING to show for him.  I implore you to get creative and start DOING THINGS. 




Alex Jones "Mingles" with the Alien Demon Threat

A Merger of Coincidence?
I Don’t Think So

In the spirit of taking nothing for granted (pun intended), it was called to my attention that Alex Jones has recently put out a Major News Alert.  Now to many of us this might be “no big revelation”, but when you realize that Jones has no concept of the forthcoming cosmic invasion, and the Nephilim / Thomas Horn warning of the “Fit Extension”problem – then this merger (or mingling) of data becomes … well … rather a bit troublesome.

Thomas Horn Meets Alex Jones

I’m telling you folks, in Jesus name, the only “intel” worth considering is “intel” that “correlates” to other data from disparate sources.  Disparate sources are those that do not normally “share the same bed”.  Get it?  Now while many of us are familiar with Steve Quayle appearing on the Alex Jones Show, I simply do not remember Thomas Horn appearing there.  Now don’t bother to bombard me with emails instructing me otherwise, because in the grand scheme of things I believe it’s safe so say that Mr. Jones does not fully embrace the warnings of Mr. Horn or Mr. Quayle.

Alex Jones Warns of Wide Scale Genetic Contamination

As if it were any big surprise to the readers of Tribulation-Now, this genetic contamination attack has been going on for AT LEAST 6,000 years.  For those who are utterly clueless, I refer you to Genesis 6.  Enough said.

Now while many of us anxiously await the release of Thomas Horn’s new book “The Forbidden Gates”, Mr. Jones is currently announcing a new threat of magnanimous proportions.  In fact, he warns this one threat alone, is larger than any other threat out there including his most prized nemesis “The New World Order”.  Now if that doesn’t speak volumes to you … you simply haven’t been paying attention…..


Now never mind that Thomas Horn is claiming to reveal new Spiritual Warfare techniques in his forthcoming book “The Forbidden Gates”, but Alex Jones has all but accidentally confirmed Thomas Horn’s work in this most foreboding news alert.

Alex Jones Reports on the:




A Revelation of Outpouring

A Warning to Receive

The response from the last two articles has been nothing less than amazing.   We have had a number of wonderful people led to Tribulation-Now’s message board in just the last 2 days time.  It is overwhelming.  It is Jesus moving in a divine way.  The time is very short.   We can no longer sit back and take things for granted.

That being said, a wonderful Jesus filled contributor to Tribulation-Now sent me an email.  He is the Holy Spirit filled “mastermind” behind driving me to starting our message board in the first place.  I wasn’t at all comfortable with the idea because I knew it would be a lot of work.  But people are being helped and testimonies are being given.  It is a divine work of the Lord and its leading us to start a Webinar-based “virtual end-times” church and “Global Intelligence / Spiritual Warfare Training” forum.

Listening Closely To All Word of God

Just last evening, while I was writing the article “NO TIME LEFT”, our administrator Aaron was being led by the Holy Spirit to read Charles and Francis Hunter’s book “How to Heal the Sick”.  This is a FABULOUS book and I strongly recommend it to everyone who wants to understand how the Lord works through divine healing ministries.  I cried my way through the entire book.  It will teach you amazing things that you personally have the power to accomplish through the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ.


Aaron pointed out to me to pay close attention to the PROPHECY in the beginning of the book.

Think about what this PROPHECY means to you!

Think about what this prophecy means to ALL OF US in light of this information unfolding before our eyes in Jesus name.


And I beheld this Christ as he continued to stretch forth His hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. People that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away.

And each of those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere.

I was bewildered as I watched, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world….the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them this anointing they became well, they became healed — and they went forth!

And this is the miracle of it — this is the glorious miracle of it — those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forthe their hands they said, According to my word, be thou made whole.”…and He said, “…I will restore all that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth. As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the earth.”

…I realized I never saw a church, and I never saw a denomination, but those people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts.

God is going to give to the world a demonstration in this last hour as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no “big I” and “little you”, but every mountain and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common — there was divine love, a divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued and it seemed the days went by as I beheld this sight.

…for all over the world God is anointing mean and women for this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will five forth the world of the Lord and are going to say, “I heard it so many times in the vision and acorrding to my word it shall be done.”

Oh, my people, listen to me. According to my word, it shall be done. We are going to be clothed in with power and anointing from God. We wont have to preach sermons, we wont have to have persons heckled in public. We wont have to depend on man, nor will we be denomination echoes, but we will HAVE THE POWER OF THE LIVING GOD. We will fear no man, but will go in the name of the Lord of Hosts!



Holy Spirit Weaponry
The Enemy’s Greatest Fear

I recently read a posting on a David Icke forum.  The contributors were considering what options they had when dealing with the emerging “alien-demon” threat.  In this particular rant, they were discussing the “intel” they had gathered from DVD entitled “The Reptilian Agenda”.  This DVD was a lengthy and tedious interview with the Zulu shaman, Credo Mutwa.

Credo disclosed some options of resistance when dealing with these “annunaki”.  He explained that they could be easily killed with “teak” wood spears.  These forum folks were upset.  They basically had concluded that if their only option to fight these demon freaks was to charge them with “teak spears” they were all …… well …. F-Bombed!

Guess what ….. THEY’RE RIGHT!

You see, Mr. Mutwa discussed all aspects of these reptilian invaders the “annunaki”.  He explained they have been here on earth for a VERY LONG TIME.  And quite frankly I believe him.  The evidence is overwhelming.  It’s even in the Bible. As I recall, their images are chiseled into stone that carbon dates beyond the history of mankind. 

But in the grand scheme of things, these entities are DEMONS.  They exist not only in the “dimensional realm” but they also have existed (and do currently exist) in our “time domain” as well.  These entities are arguably the prime leaders of the Satanic Rebellion.  These “things” work with the Black Ops of all the leading governments of the world.  They are the “upper echelon” of Satan’s army intending to stomp mankind in their quest to destroy the seed of Abraham and wage war against our Heavenly Father, YHWH and his son Jesus, Yeshua.

Sound like a Star Wars adventure?  Yes it does.  Am I nuts?  Nope … I guarantee it. 

This is NOT the ABC mini-series “V” folks – this is really happening in Jesus Name!

When Does the Bride Get Taken Out of the Way?

So as things start to unfold in the “no-so-distant-future” what do you think you will “SEE”?  I believe it depends on when the “bride” is taken out of the way.  AND it depends on whether you “qualify” as “the bride”.  Quite frankly if you are absolutely sure you are part of that special group, I tip my hat to you.  AMEN and PRAISE JESUS.  I pray to the Most High and awesome God, we all are part of that blessed group. 

Because if you are NOT, you face some really creepy and dark times ahead.

And quite frankly, even if you ARE part of that group, there is no absolute guarantee your  “flight out” will occur before you have to face these things.  If you are a “pre-wrath” harpazo person, such as I – then you very well might want to consider your options.  And I am NOT talking about “teak spears”.

Climb Out of the Intelligence Rat Hole

I implore your common sense. Here is the problem.

We, you and I, all of us… just dont’ have enough time to allow ourselves to dwell in the “rat holes” of the enemy’s “intel” any longer.  We have to sharpen our “spiritual swords” and become Jesus warriors on a level never seen before in the history of Christendom.  Just as the Bible says, the Great Tribulation will be like no other time.  We must “rise up” with the power of our King Jesus using “spiritual weaponry” honed to strike back against such a challenge.

All Types of Jesus Warrior Officers

My ministry, which by traditional Jesus standards is highly esoteric, has led me to an amazing group of people that I believe God intended to be mighty warriors on HIS behalf. The most intelligent ones are those that HE intended to become formidable “intelligence officers” in his Jesus Power Army during the Great Tribulation.

The problem is that God allows us “free will”. Somehow, when we “dive down” into the abyss of hidden “intel” we have to anchor ourselves in our “road map” of divine power, (The Bible), and harness that “intel” by doing good and making sure our existence counts for something.   You simply MUST pull yourself back up “out of that hole” and work on your spiritual warfare skills.

Many of these super intelligent people, I believe, have been led to me by God.  I stopped chasing people a long time ago. I knew the Lord was “talking” to me when I felt “peace” after he impressed upon my heart that he would lead people to me.  And it appears, many of these people are his “spiritual army officers”. 

But anyone who knows anything about warfare knows, you don’t win a war with great intel alone.  You need offensive weapons.  You need the power of the Holy Spirit and DOMINION over darkness.

I knew I would be challenged by this breed of super-intelligent Jesus people. And it HAS been really challenging. Why? Because of the “Solomon Problem” (see the article here https://tribulation-now.org/2010/05/15/the-solomon-problem/ ).

These folks are unbelievably smart, but they lack one critical element in their psyche. These folks lack the DRIVE to pull themselves back up out of that “intel trap” long enough to DO WHAT JESUS TOLD THEM TO DO!

Jesus needs his prime “intelligence” personnel to focus on the greater good.

A Single Sentence Revealed Everything

As I sat there night after night, listening to the “Reptilian Agenda” DVD, I wondered if I would make it through the whole ordeal.  My wife complained she could not understand Mr. Mutwa and it was too tedious to listen to him any more.  She gave up in the first 30 minutes.  And if it weren’t for the grace of God, I wouldn’t have made it as far as I did.

But laced amidst the endless stories of this shaman’s hidden wisdom came a message that I might have missed.  This message was so subtle, I argue most would not have noticed it.  Mr. Mutwa explained, these annunaki are afraid of something in particular.  He said they “know” there is “something” inside of humans that threatens their very existence.  This “force”, they feared, would eventually “rise up” against them. 

This force … I guarantee you … is the POWER of the Holy Spirit.

These are DEMONS you see.

They know the Bible better than WE do!

They know what’s comin.

Summary & Wake Up Call in Jesus Name

This is why it’s so critical we all rise above any one particular source of information and measure all of it “humbly” against the inerrant Word of God. Personally I prefer to collect “intel” from as many sources as possible. From the darkest of the dark, to the wisest of the sages, and even the utterly ridiculed and esoteric.

Laced within these delusions are elements of truth. When “correlated” across all the disparate sources there are tidbits that match. Those tidbits are likely trustworthy. And even some of those tidbits are up for grabs when you factor in the Most High’s “Ace of Spades”.

This complexity is what drove me to write last nights’ article entitled “Taste Great! Less Filling!”….

Hidden in all this is a lesson to be learned. We are being robbed of doing what we were told to do by becoming too fascinated with the events unfolding around us. The “real” Christian community – the true Jesus loving saints of the forthcoming Great Tribulation, are a dangerous army of Holy Spirit warriors.

WE … are the ones “they” fear the most!
WE are their REAL ENEMY.

The talking heads are pawns.

When WE stop worrying about interpreting prophecy and start exercising our Jesus powers, they are in serious trouble and they know it.
