Two People Who Inspire Me This Monday


These are two people whom inspire me.

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is an Iranese Christian Pastor who is in prison. He was locked  because he refused to convert to Islam. A few days back Iranese officials offered Pastor Yousef liberty if he recanted on his Christian faith. The pastor once again said no.

Yousef could be executed at any time. It’s been the hand of God through the prayers of many, and signed petitions to politicians that have delayed his executions.

Please do not forget Pastor Yousef in prayers and by making your voice heard politically.

Maria Corina Machado is a Venezuelan politician. In this video she confronts Venezuela’s communist president Hugo Chavez. I am sorry that the video is in Spanish. She calls Hugo Chavez a thief to his face, and that in front of his supporters. The courage of this lady to stand against evil inspires me. Even if you cannot understand Spanish take out four minutes to witness the marvelous exchange. She reminds me of Paul confronting King Agrippa.

I believe that God is calling you and me to this kind of courage.

O sleeper? Arise!


I try to be a realist and not a “doomist” when it comes to Bible prophecy. As a matter of fact, I know little about Bible prophecy. Looking back at the times in which the Lord spoke significant “end times” or “judgments” types of words to me, I can count them on one hand.

About six to eight years ago an Indian preacher (from India) by the name of Glen Cunningham was invited to minister at “Church on the Rock” in Albuquerque, NM. He came with a word for the church in the USA. God had told him that the American church was the “O sleeper” in the book of Jonah verse five. Jonah was the “O sleeper” and the American church was Jonah.

Jonah 1:5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not.15 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.In this account Jonah had disobeyed God and had failed to pronounce an impending judgment upon Nineveh. Rather, he got on a boat and fled the other way to Tarshish. As he dozed off, God sent a big storm in the boat’s way. Those that were in charge of the vessel found Jonah sleeping and thought that the gods had cursed him, making him the grounds for this furious tempest. They woke him up by the name “O sleeper” and cast him into the ocean to shatter the curse of the storm. This is where the whale swallows Jonah.

Glen Cunningham said that God had told him that the American church was the “O sleeper” because it was asleep in the light. This preacher then said that the church in the USA was given eight years to repent, lest judgment fall on the church and on the USA. When he said those words I began to visibly shake from fear in my seat. This had never happened to me before.

According to my mathematics, we are at fulfillment of this prophecy.

The Vision of the White House and Wall Street


About five years ago, our family was invited to the home of Pastor Lalitha Rachur, in New Mexico to pray in the New Year. During this time I had a vision of the map of the USA with a caved in hole around the area of Connecticut and Massachusetts. Since that time I have been puzzled and disturbed by the vision, never getting an answer from the Lord about what it means.

Last night I was praying and I re asked God for the interpretation. What He showed me left me so troubled that I could nothing more than ask Him to have mercy on our great nation, the USA.

The caved in hole was being progressively dug by several bulldozers. The bulldozers just kept ritualistically digging up dirt and flinging it behind them. There was no rhyme or reason to their digging. The thoughtless dredging of the earth represents our American mindsets. It is zombie like, robotic, unthinking consumption. It was a wasteful, non-stopping, digging, excavating, grabbing and dumping, over and over and over. A lustful need for more and more, without discernment, or thankfulness to God, or thinking of our neighbors, or our future, or of our children. Just a digging, grabbing and dumping, digging, grabbing and dumping.

If you have ever seen the phenomena of a sinkhole, as the hole widens suddenly homes hundred reds of feet away, suddenly lose their foundation and sink into the hole.

I suddenly saw the White House and Wall Street totally lose their foundation and collapse in into the loose soil near to the hole. By all effects, there was no more Main Street or Wall Street. I realized then that America had not foundation except soil. I cried, O God, bring in some cement into the soil so that our White House or Wall Street do not collapse into the sink hole. I realized that the cement must be brought in by the church. As I cried it seemed like bits of cement were being injected into the soil around it, but it seemed too little. We the church have been so asleep. After I got off my knees and went back to bed, I wonder if it is too little too late or of we still have time to awaken and place enough of the foundation of God into this land to prevent a total collapse of this country. I will continue to pray. The Kenyans say, “Where God reveals God deals. “ I am thinking about my children and the generation that we are mentoring!

This Vision Came On

There is a Hat Rack to Hang the Hat of Sickness, but We Choose to Wear it!


There is a hat rack to hang the hat of sickness, but we choose to wear it!

Matthew eight sixteen and seventeen are revealing verses, when studied in the Greek.

Mt 8:16  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were (having or retaining)  sick (evil): King James Version

“and healed all that were sick” …  evil having or retaining, He cured therapeutically.”

The translated Greek says, “Those evil or injurious things having or keeping, Jesus healed.”

Moreover, evening itself coming about, they bring-near to him many themselves being demonized, and he cast- the breaths -out with a word, and he services all those holding injuries. The Awful Scroll Bible Version

 The Awful Scroll Bible does a superb job by saying ; “those holding to injuries.”

 17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took ( received) our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. King James Version

I have been a Christian for thirty three years. Many times I find myself retaining, holding or keeping an infirmity or a sickness, and that for a long time.

Human nature is obsessed with worrying about  things which afflict.

Somehow, we calculate that by concentrating on the malady we will attain to something. To what, I don’t know, but I catch myself stuck in this horrible habit.

17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took ( received) our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. King James Version

 Verse seventeen is to be understood in context of  sixteen.

Jesus Himself took our infirmities. The word “took”, is “lambano”, which is translated to receive, or get.

Biblical receiving is not a mental ascension. It’s receiving, obtaining and making my own, to implement. The word lambano is what Jesus used to talk about receiving by faith. When Jesus tells us to receive, He expects us to get so that we can use.

On the cross, Jesus received, obtained and made our sicknesses His own. In fact the cross is the “Welcome Sign” for sin. In a weird analogy, His bloodied body represents the refrigerator door for every magnet of sin and disease to be placed on.

Jesus welcomed it then, and welcomes it now.

Humanity is hostile to The One who gladly wants all its junk to be placed on Him.

Jesus is  the “hat rack” where disease can be hung from.  We have a place to hang the hat of sickness but  choose to wear it instead.

Mt 8:16  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were (to have)  sick (evil): King James Version

If  we choose to have and keep the injurious and evil things unto ourselves, there is little that Jesus can do for us until we let go.  In proportion to our letting go, we get healed. I think that Jesus is waiting to quickly heal me when I  remit my sickness on Him.

Joh 20:23  Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

  To remit is the same word used to forgive.  Biblical forgiveness is to send something bad so far away that it’s impossible for it to adversely affect.

Forgiveness is not just an utterance or a confession of heart. It is a physical, emotional and spiritually tangible transference of something evil,  so far from you, that it can no longer influence.

Jesus forgave us. Disease has been forgiven and sent to the hill far way where that old rugged cross stands.

When we remit our sins and those of others, we sent them far to the land of Golgotha. When we keep them, we hold ,and suppress the sickness close to our frail human body. One by-product of suppressing the evil is bitterness.  The gravity of not forgiving yourself and others is that through inaction, you hold, retain, and suppress the evil to yourself.

Happy (makarios) Thursday!

The U.S.A. Eagerly Awaits The Revelation of the Children of God



I propose that where East Africa is under a stronghold of poverty, America is under a stronghold of distraction brought on by a need for self-entertainment.  This self-entertainment is search for happiness that can only be found in God.  The former craze for Harry Potter was a craving for the supernatural, which God has naturally put in the heart of everyone. I mean, Jesus Christ, is the most supernatural being in the universe.  Hello!

In part, the church has failed to show this to America. I am guilty myself.

We Christians needs to be so God absorbed, so God impassioned, healed, and liberated, that Christ becomes excessive through our lives, drawing people to Him. He is the most lovely and delightful of all Beings! If people would only know. That’s the job of the church, to present Him as all-powerful, wonderful, and charming.

Rom 8:19  For the creation ( America) waits with eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

I propose to the church then, that America is aching to see the reality of the resurrected and all-powerful, all magnificent, and all beautiful Christ Jesus through the life of the believer.  Unless, we the church become intently fixated upon God, engrossed and obsessed with Him, this will not happen. The price of having Christ magnified, liberated, and resurrected through our lives, will cost the Christian everything. It’s the hardest thing, but equally the most amazingly fantastic.

Who will step up to the plate and do this, when humanity has so very, very, few good leaders to emulate and such a desperation for good role models, Christ Jesus being the maximum one.

The Church is the Accused of the Lord


Eph 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us (ACCUSATIVE NOUN CASE) with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

In the Greek, the accusative case is just what it says. The accusing finger points towards the object that will receive all judgment, sentence, or wrath. It’s a receptacle into where all is focused or pointed to. The accused object is the receptacle or the goal of the judgment.

If we turn this into to something good, the object, placed in the accusative case, is the thing that all benefits is poured or funneled into.

The church is the entity into which all of God’s love, blessings, benefits, all that He is, and all the He wants to do is focused into.

I call the church the receptacle of God funnel into which He pours all.

It’s up to us to increase our ability to receive.

We are the objects of His love, we are the charming ones, we have been translated into kingdom of The Son of His Love, and we are His beloved.

Most healing will come as a revelation of how much He truly loves every last part of you. Where you are sick, receive His love into that very place. You are the receptacle of His love. You are the one whose God’s positively accusing finger points to!
