O Blessed Thanksgiving

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
O Lord, hear my prayer of thanksgiving…Thy will be done…on earth…as it is in Heaven…to You, Heavenly Father, I give you the thanks for all things through Jesus Christ, Thy only begotten Son, my Lord and Savior, with all my heart, with all my soul, and with all my mind.

That we are still a Christian nation whereby the majority believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, despite what the so called “critics” would go to hell and back to attempt to tell us; despite what the enemy, Satan and his uncountable horde of demons would whisper in the ears of many; despite what Muslims and other religions opposed to the one true and living GOD, seek to a disruptive, dark, negative force in the world, and the many? sad to say, and even those fools who say there is no God!

We are thankful, as believers, that we have and can confess our sins unto Almighty God through Jesus Christ, and that we are forgiven and saved for all eternity…and that we have a new kind of life in Him, while we are still here on earth, awaiting the resurrection, the “Rapture,” even as the Lord Jesus will one day, perhaps soon, come in the air above the earth to receive unto Himself His own, the dead and living in Christ Jesus…

I am thankful for my wife and my mom, and my brothers and sisters and all their families, for my church and all my dear friends there, for the students of my classes, for my college, for my ministry the Lord Jesus has given me, for my healing after my back surgeries and overcoming all the setbacks, and that, thanks be to God, I am walking…and in the Lord, my God, I am getting stronger…for accomplishing, to His glory all the events of the past two weeks…for my continued healing…for Your mercy on the sick and needy, of operations and healing, and for all my loved and dear and precious ones who have died…trusting that their last thought was on Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior…Who shall give us eternal life…I am truly thankful, O Lord…

For your words of light, and truth, and life, Your spoken word written as handed down, and contained, and given to us in a book, a precious book called “The Holy Bible.”

And thus, as it is written, for the nearness and sureness of salvation for all who would believe…for what does the Word say? He who has an ear let him hear the words of God:
“But what does it say? The word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart: That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

With the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved…For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that all who believe in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. This is eternal salvation for the believer.

I am thankful for your free gift of salvation for all who would believe, an uncountable number, past, present, and future, that Thou, O LORD only know.

That You, O Lord, are the only one, true and living God…there are no others beside you…the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the blessed and holy Trinity, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever…in whose hands are all things, all events, all peoples from birth to death, century after century, and the prophecies that await future fulfillment…the things to come after the Church Age-the Age of Grace which began at Pentecost in 33 A.D., and has continued, soon approaching some 2,000 years…awaiting the Rapture of the Church Saints; followed by the Tribulation; the 2nd Coming of the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, Jesus Christ, the Messiah to earth with His angels and saints…to set up his kingdom on earth and to rule for a thousand years…the destruction of Satan in the Lake of Fire; the judgment of all unbelievers since human history began; resurrected to face Christ at the “Great White Throne Judgment,” and to be cast alive into the Lake of Fire, which is the second death. Blessed are those who have no part in the second death; follower by the new heaven and the new earth, followed by the New Jerusalem that comes down out of Heaven; followed by eternity.

Blessed are we, and those who love You and believe, O Lord God, for the Kingdom of God is near…

Thank you, Lord for this most blessed time of thanksgiving for all things in Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior…and that You might know the thoughts of my heart.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit…

Praying Jesus the Messiah of the Old Testament

We are just people in this time period of human history, put here, at this time, by the grace of God, according to His will, according to His plan. But we are a most blessed people, Christians, saved…say it, shout it, for, indeed, if we be in the sure belief of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Son of God, in all that He did, and all that He said, and all that is written in our life with Him forever, why, is this not cemented in the Holy Scriptures, the Holy Bible, and that forever? Yes! And more, much more than we can not fathom now…but one day we shall see the richness of His promises to those who love Him! For all shall come to pass as sure as the earth will endure, and the sun and moon and the stars will continue to do as the Lord God created them to do.

I pray to the Lord God Almighty every day; I cry out to Jesus with praise and thanksgiving for His mercy, and grace, and blessings, uncountable, and to Him, the Father, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit, all glory and power and might and dominion and all things created only by Him and for Him. I think of heaven and seek the Kingdom of God, and I think, or try to imagine what it will be like with Jesus in heaven, on earth again, and for all eternity. I love Him with all my heart, soul and mind, but I ask Him to help me in that love. I want to draw nearer, closer, but this earthly, mortal body cannot attain to it. And I wonder how many more years the Lord will give me, for it seems, no, it really is a struggle…I have been through alot, and He has helped me through it all despite me…I cannot get through my health issues, my struggles on the road of life without Him! And I try to grasp His hand to hold me, to strengthen me, and to assist me in my ministry which He has given me. Praise GOD from whom all blessings flow…

And so, let us pray His Holy, eternal Names, Titles and Descriptions of Jesus the Messiah (Christ) in the Old Testament. Lord hear our prayer as we honor You; for You are:

The Seed of the Woman…The Angel of the LORD…The God Who Sees…you are…El Shaddai (God Almighty)…and Shiloh…You, O Lord, are the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob…You are God…I AM WHO I AM, You said long ago…and, O Lord…You are the LORD…Yahweh…(YHVH)…the Star…

No one can see God and live….but You, O Jesus, appeared to men and woman before You were born…and they saw You and beheld you…they saw You, O God, and lived!

For You are The Commander of the Army of the LORD…But You are also…The LORD is Peace and the Rock of Israel…O Lord, these all speak of Your awesomeness, Your majesty, Your power and might and glory…

You are the Anointed and the Son of God….and the King Over All the Earth…

When I go to sleep, You are the LORD my Shepherd…when I look up to heaven and ponder my future, You are the Rock of my Salvation…saved, because of You, O Lord, from my sins, and the wrath to come, and saved for life everlasting with You, O Lord Jesus…

You are my Lord…the Horn of David…and the Horn of my Salvation….You, O Lord God, are the Savior…You are Immanuel or “With us God”…

When we hear the immortal words of Handel’s “Messiah” during the Christmas season, do not our hearts stir and warm when we hear those precious words of Isaiah describing Jesus the Messiah, the Christ as, “Wonderful,” “Counselor,” “Almighty God,” the “Everlasting Father,” the “Prince of Peace”…and this when He comes again on that glorious day!

O Lord, The Root of Jesse, the Banner of the People, and eternal: “The First and the Last.”

You are our mighty Redeemer…the One who teaches us to profit and leads us in the Way…

Adonai, Elohim, the LORD God….

I pray, O Lord Jesus of Nazareth, that today, one more Jew and family and one more Gentile and family will come to the saving grace to believe in Him as their Lord and Savior…Yeshua…Jesus the Messiah, the Christ…and I pray for the souls of those who were conceived and never born…I pray for the precious children…may they come to know Jesus who loves them…

For You, O Lord, the Suffering Servant and the Man of Sorrows…the Righteous One and a Witness to the People…our Leader and Commander for the People…You are the Holy One of Israel…Yet, my Lord, You are the God of the Whole Earth…for the heavens and earth declare Your Glory…You are Israel’s Salvation and Savior…

You are the Angel of His Presence…the Branch of Righteousness…the LORD Our Righteousness…One like the Son of Man…the Messenger of the Covenant…

O Lord, my God, Lord Jesus, how precious and almighty and life-giving and eternal are Your wonderful names forever…

The Journey Beyond Life

Brother Monk…what has put you in such a contrary mood? You, of all my holy ones, are most favored, I am sure, by the Lord Jesus. He knows your heart and your great love for Him, and He hears your constant prayers. He knows how you put your life on the line for Him, even facing certain death,
when, on your missionary trip to Uganda, you stood face to face with a Muslim rebel gang leader who ordered you to renounce Jesus or die!

O Father, when I go out into the world, and have a chance to talk to people, even Christians, no one wants to hear about what God has in store for them when they die! There is no concern about death, only the present and all the things they are caught up on in the world. And I want to tell them their eternal future, them and their family and friends, their eternal future after this short life, for we all must die some day, sooner or later. It is not important to them, but my heart hurts for them , and I want to tell them the things I have learned by the grace of God. And…

Well, Brother Monk, write what’s on your heart, and send it out into the sea, perhaps many bottles, and someone, somewhere will find it.

To Whom It May Concern:

When you die, what then? What shall happen to your body and soul? How shall your remains be handled? Will you be buried? If so, where?
And what of your immortal soul? Where will it go until the resurrection?

Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Father Almighty, is the only way to salvation and eternal life with Him forever! He is the only way to the Father. Call on the name of the Lord and ask forgiveness, and believe on Him, for what is written in the Holy Word of God?

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession in made unto salvation. For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The present world, even as in all previous centuries, is made up of believers and unbelievers: those who believe in Jesus, Yeshua, and His atoning death for the sins of the world, and those who don’t. There are only Gentile-Christian and Jewish believers, and Jewish and Gentile unbelievers, period! There is no other way; there is no other grouping…

Just before your death, at your ery last breath, what you believe in your heart determines in which direction your immortal soul-spirit goes…upward or downward…to heaven or to hell…

Jesus and Paul said the Christian body sleeps in Jesus at death, but the soul soars upward to heaven in spirit form to be with the Lord. Whereas the soul of the unbeliever travels immediately to hell away from the Lord. There it shall stay until the resurrection after the Millennial Kingdom on earth when Christ shall rule. They shall face Christ and be judged and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity.

When Jesus comes out of heaven to resurrection His church-His believers, He shall bring with Him the souls of all believers in heaven, and shall put them into their bodies in the grave. And they shall be resurrected with new, glorified, immortal bodies like Christ’s body, and we shall follow Him to heaven, and after seven years of the Great Tribulation to the unbelieving people on earth, we shall return with Him back to earth as He crushes His foes, saves His people, and establishes His Kingdom of a thousand years. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.

But the souls of the unbelievers shall remain in hell.

We, and the Tribulation saints, and all the Old Testament saints shall feast with the Lord Jesus at the Supper of the Lord for a thousand years.

If you have not accepted the Lord Jesus into your heart, let Him in, for He has been knocking at the door of your heart for some time now.

This day, my prayer is for one more Gentile, one more Jew come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus as their Savior.

There is only forgiveness, only salvation, only escape from the wrath of God to come upon on the whole earth, only eternal life after death, only in Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords…He is coming soon…

And so the roads we trod in life, the broad and the narrow, and the journey beyond…

Even so, come Lord Jesus…

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

What’s Coming Next?

Most of the world does not know what the future holds for them. Billions do not know what will happen to them when they die. Almighty GOD only holds the answers of what will take place in the future, even perhaps the very, very near future.

There is only one GOD, the Triune GOD, known as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the very same One revealed in the New Testament of the Holy Bible as the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one GOD in Three Persons, the blessed and Holy Trinity. There are believers and unbelievers today as in every century of human history. GOD sees Gentiles, Jews, and the Holy Church-the body of Jesus Christ-believers in Him.

At death, two things happen. First, the immaterial part of man, the soul, leaves the body and goes one of two place: to heaven with Jesus, or to hell with unbelievers. The body is buried. Both await a resurrection of the body, but at different times, and in much different circumstances for all eternity. The believers in Christ shall be resurrected at different times but will receive an immortal, glorified, new body to be with Jesus during His thousand year kingdom reign on earth, then with Him, GOD, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit for all eternity. The unbelievers will be resurrected after Christ’s reign on earth, and will face Him, and will die the second death and be cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity, forever away from GOD. There will also be there in the Lake of Fire Satan, the enemy of GOD, and deceiver of the whole world, along with his son, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet! Plus, also, the fallen angels, the demons!

There shall follow a new heaven and a new earth, and the New Jerusalem shall come down to earth from heaven, prepared by GOD.

Before Creation, GOD had already planned out history in a sequential, chronological order. This generation would be born and accomplish exactly what GOD had planned. All things, both visible and invisible were created by GOD. All people were planned by GOD. All events were planned by GOD. GOD’s plan of the ages, GOD’s plan of salvation can be seen in His holy spoken word written in the Holy Bible. All the prophecies of GOD either have been fulfilled exactly and to the very time, or they will be fulfilled soon, in the future, the time know only to the Father.

And so there is a sequential, chronological order of events which must surely come to pass. These are tied into the “sevens of God.” There was the creation week of seven days. There are one hundred years in a century, and ten centuries to a millennium. We are currently in the sixth millennium of human history. By the time of the birth of Jesus Christ, approximately four thousand years had passed. And since the time of Christ’s crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension, almost two thousand years have passed. That’s six thousand years coming up! And Messiah Jesus, the Son of God, the coming King of kings, and Lord of lords will reign on earth for a thousand years, the seventh millennium. Then comes the final judgment, followed by eternity.

The horrible things that are happening around the world today in the 21st Century must happen, and will happen despite the talk of “blood moons,” the Temple, Jihad, Armageddon, the Second Coming, and the “End Times.” But the end is not yet! We are not there yet because GOD has said in His Holy Bible that things future must take place in order. The next great event to occur in GOD’s prophetic plan is the Rapture-resurrection of the Saints-His Church, an event that has no signs, an event that is imminent! Something GOD has promised, something only GOD can do and will do. Once heaven is reached with Christ, the unholy Antichrist will be revealed and the seven year period of judgment and chaos-the Great Tribulation will be present on the whole unbelieving earth! There are many things that will happen during this terrible time in human history. Billions will die, most of the earth will be destroyed! Then the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus Christ will return from heaven in glory with His armies-the heavenly host. Then He shall reign on the throne of David in Jerusalem for a thousand years. Then comes the judgment of the fallen angels and unbelievers of all human history. Then comes eternity, either with GOD, or away from Him, in the special place He made.

So, it is important to know the future and what it holds.

Heavenly Father. if it be Thy will, please bring today Gentiles and Jews and their families to the saving knowledge and belief in Jesus Christ, the Savior, God, the Son of God. I also pray for the souls of those who were conceived but never born, and that they are with You in heaven. So many mysteries, Lord, that we shall one day know. Blessed be Thy holy name, O Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever…

Let’s Get It Right

Evolution is all wrong. It seeks to undermine the foundation of God’s words of truth. There is no evolving of anything, the simple to complex life forms is nothing but a load of horse dung, a man made theory that Satan is then author of, for he is the father of lies! Contrary to popular belief, GOD did not create out of chaos, He created out of nothing! And everything He created in the six days of Creation as told in the very first words of GOD’s spoken word written, was very good.  And then, on the 6th 24 hour day, GOD made man, the very first man, out of the ground of the earth, “and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul.”

Chaos speaks of decay, death, everything in disarray, out of control, everything that is not of God. No, He created by His spoken word, and in an instant it was, working as God gave it to work and praise Him for their creation. Where you live and what you see outside is the same things that God created in those six days when time began. Everything, plants, animals, insects, man and woman were created adult so that they could produce offspring and continue their kind century after century after century, and even now in the 21st Century, today…just look around; praise God for His mighty creation-beautiful, good, lovely, perfect.  Chaos, chance, cannot praise God. Didn’t you know the heavens and the earth declare the glory of God?  Or did you not know the grass came before the herbs and the trees?

We know the names of the Creator: the Father, the Son, Jesus, the Christ, and the Holy Spirit. All were involved in Creation. There was no millions of years of life, then spoiled by Satan, and God had to re-create. That slanders GOD and makes His mighty power to be upset by a created being, a cherub, as if to say that he has power like God! Really? You believe that?  Guess you have not read “The Revelation of Jesus Christ,” the very last book of the Holy Bible, the very last message of Jesus Christ to His church, and to the world. Believe then, His simple, understandable words of Holy Scripture, with it all beginning in Genesis.

Genesis means “In the beginning,” the very beginning of all things, and here you can know Jesus, God, before He became a man thousands of years later. Here, in Genesis, you will see how God chose a special people for Himself, and follow the “seed line” of the Messiah, beginning with Eve’s offspring.  You will discover that Satan will have a son in the future (the Antichrist), and how the global Flood was brought about and why?  You will discover that the people lived very long lives, and died.  You will discover that it is God, Jesus who brings about inventions and the means to build houses, cities, and modes of travel. Even instruments for war first appear in Genesis.

The only people saved during the Flood were eight people out of a world population that reached into the millions.  God saved only Noah and his wife, and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and their wives. It is from these that the earth was re-populated. It is from the off-spring of these three sons that God made 70 nations, and caused new languages to come about, from Hebrew, the first language, to hundreds. And so, over the centuries the earth was once again peopled, by speech, tribe, and area.

Want to know your past and how we got to be born in the 20th/21st centuries?  Read Genesis. Want to know your future? Read the Revelation.

God-Jesus has put it all in writing for you to read and believe.  Jesus is the fullness of the Father; Jesus makes all things work and holds all things together. All things were created by Him and for Him.  Praise God for His wonderful revelations in His most blessed and holy words of light, life, and truth.

Jesus-beyond words

I still say that the Lord has sped up the time we live in…who is not saying where did the past month go? This, I believe, is quickly moving to the events the LORD has told us will soon take place! The things that will take place follow an order the LORD God put in place at the very creation when He spoke the words: “Let there be.” And before any human being can think it, even faster than a thought, poof! AND THERE IT WAS! Sequential, chronological, in God’s perfect order of events in the first week of Creation, seven 24 hour days!

I was just looking at the trees in the woods…how many different trees were there? Then, how many different trees are there in the world? Can’t count them, can we? And all these millions and millions of different trees were created adult, with its own seed, and so that the seed drops to the ground and in the spring, it sprouts up! All this by the word of God. And that was on the third day. He did not create everything at once, but in a sequential, chronological order.

That’s how GOD works, and that’s how He, the Lord Jesus has worked in my healing and recovery from two back surgeries, and some serious setbacks! Little, by little, stronger and stronger, right leg starting to work again, sequentially, not all at once. And realizing just how much I have missed our ministry, and the very time he would have me ordained a priest in the Anglican church…the precious, holy ministry the Lord Jesus gave me…three years in the making…not counting my studies toward masters and doctorate degrees all to the blessed ministry of writing, teaching, and Holy Communion.

Prophecy is for today, for the age in which we live, the Church Aga, the Age of Grace…going on 21 centuries…almost 2,000 years…not the foretelling that the prophets of the Old Testament did, but truthful, powerful insights into future events the Lord has written in the New Testament, events yet to take place…you can know your future…and know that these future world events spoken, for example in Thessalonians and the Revelation, and as true to God’s Plan of the Ages, they will happen in a sequential, chronological order that the Lord Jesus will execute from Heaven. Just wait and see. We are born and die in a time and order of God.

All this in the mind of God…He saw all people, in all places, in a distinct time or age, doing what He already planned according to His mighty will…even those that followed a different will in the world, directly opposite God’s will…and the invisible battle rages for the souls of men…to whom will you worship…and just what do you believe? All or some, just a little? couldn’t be…not sure…heaven hell, saved, unsaved, all saved, the Holy, blessed Trinity, the Devil, Satan and his host of billions of fallen angels or demons, the Lamb of God, Jesus: God or man or God-Man? The Rapture, the Great Tribulation, the Antichrist, the False Prophet, the Second Coming, the Millennial Kingdom, the judgment of the unsaved, the new heavens and earth, the New Jerusalem, eternity with God, or without? You can know the future, not when they will occur, but that they will occur! In order, one by one by one…in Jesus Christ, Messiah, Him, our Savior…beyond words.

Blessed be His holy words of the Bible…blessed be His holy name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit forever and ever and ever…

In Praise of Him

I awoke praising GOD, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit for a new day in His creation. Even though dark rain clouds blocked the morning sunshine, I see the a part of the countless variety of trees and the thing God created them to do, to bloom with a showering of bright leaves unfolding in the Spring season, and in the Fall, sheds its leaves in a brilliant display of God’s colors that are indescribable, but bring warmth and joy to the heart. And, in HIS INFINITE PLAN as He created everything as adult, the trees drop their seeds to the ground where the root and grow into adult trees over the years. This same seed may also be carried by the wind to a different location, or, one of God’s creations, the birds, can carry the seed for miles and miles away.

Praise GOD for His spoken word, and what he created was instant and in the thousands of varieties of plants, for example, on the third day of HIS creation, that first He saw everything in creation and history happen before it happened! We cannot understand it because He is GOD. All will come to pass as HE planned it and saw it before HE CREATED it. Nothing is by chance or accident, that is the tactic of Satan to trick men into thinking it is their own idea. Those ideas or theories about how the earth came into being, and how life began on the earth are dead, because they go against GOD.

GOD created out of nothing, not chaos; everything HE created was good, very good. He even created all the angels and cherubs who sang for joy at God’s creation, and the heaven and earth all declare His powerful and almighty glory. But, as GOD planned IT TO HAPPEN, HE now had a “rival” in the world of Adam and Eve in the paradise of the Garden of Eden! A mighty, fallen cherub, and a third of the angels of heaven followed to the sky above the earth, for they were and are spirit beings with great power to come down to the earth and mess with mankind. Up to this time, there was only one will in the world, and that was of God. Now, there were two wills in the world, one of GOD, and one of Satan. And so the battles of the ages began as to who’s will man would listen to and obey. It was the battle for the souls of men. GOD ALREADY KNOWS THE BEGINNING FROM THE END He knows those who are His, and those who are Satan’s; those who will live with him in glory; those who will live in darkness and damnation with Satan, his son, and the false prophet!

So let us praise God for His wonderful creation and us. Let us pray without ceasing by saying the name of Jesus and remembering all He has done for us who believe, and all He will do one day soon. Let us pray and sing the psalms and the hymns that give Him the glory and Praise and thanks, and blessings. Let us always bless HIS HOLY NAME, O, BLESSED AND HOLY TRINITY, O FATHER, AND SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT, GOD IN THREE PERSONS, BLESSED TRINITY.

Blessed be the Lord God forever; bless be my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
