A Prophetic Life?
Thus says the Lord, “One year from now you will have a son and he will be a man of God.”
These words were spoken – by a stranger – to my mother – 12 months before I was born. I don’t know if I was born on the exact same day 12 months later but I wouldn’t be surprised.
Though not by choice at first I have lived a life filled with prophecies and interactions with God. Today, I would not have it any other way!
Some prophecies over the course of my life were given to me (for me) by others with prophetic giftings – some of those prophecies came to pass and some not so much.
So what is a legitimate prophecy? Continue reading

Fullness of Time 2
God provides a means of escape
for anyone and everyone
who will choose Him
through His Son,
But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because you are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. (Galatians 4:4–6 KJV)
In previous Fullness of Time events God sent PRELUDES into our world and THEN God sent Jesus, His Son, to provide salvation for the world. The next great crossroad, the next coming Fullness of Time will bring the full measure of sin and that to its zenith. This era is nearly upon us, the world.
Daniel 8:23 expounds upon these preludes to this period known as the Latter Days. It will be a time in which the sinners of the world will achieve an unbelievable and unprecedented level of wickedness. According to scripture the sinfulness during the Great Consummation will fill the proverbial cup of the wicked to its fullest level in the history of the world. Continue reading
An Unpopular Truth
But though he (Jesus) had done so many miracles before them, yet they (Israel) believed not on him: that the saying of Esaias (Isaiah) the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? And to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, He hath blinded their eyes and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted and I should heal them. These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him (Jesus) (John 12:37–41 KJV emphasis added).
Of course, the report in question speaks of Jesus the Christ. While the gospel has been offered to every gentile nation with varied levels of acceptance, some of the earth’s populations have been created as brute beasts predestined for their own destruction (2 Peter 2:12, Jude 1:10). Conspicuously, if the gateway to destruction is broad and the gateway to salvation narrow, there will always and unavoidably be more destined toward their own destruction than toward the glories of salvation. This is a sad but accurate biblical truth. Pray for those who cannot internalize (see or hear) the gospel message. Pray for God’s boundless mercy on every person you know. Petition our Savior through your prayers for mercy on the lost, but more important, pray for those brothers and sisters in Christ who are currently saved and love the Lord but have not obeyed in learning God’s Word effectively. Remember, any Christian who receives the Mark of the Beast will suffer the full measure of God’s Wrath (Revelation 14:9–12).
The horrors I have witnessed in the visions of God’s Wrath bring tears to my eyes EVERY time I think on these issues. Continue reading
When Will He Come?
The world is moving through the last season of Man. Soon… very soon, as we are currently in the Beginning of Sorrows, the world governed by Man’s rule will cease to exist as we know it.
People everywhere are seeing the Coming Storm of all Storms; and yet, most cannot catch what is wrong or determine what they have perceived.
Like seeing a single tree in the midst of a mighty forest, we see the tree but do not truly perceive its unique details; leastwise, not until we are up close and personal.
The Storm (the coming of the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation) is nearly on top of us with only a handful of years remaining before THE Crucible strikes and yet…
How are our eyes to be opened if they are not open today? Continue reading
God’s Will Getting Done
Though it may sound rhetorical, all of God’s Word from creation to this day has been fulfilled in accordance with God’s divine purposes. All things considered, He is the Almighty and Omniscient God! Even the plans and working of the Beast and False Prophet are done according to God’s divine purpose and will.
“For God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled” (Revelation 17:17 ESV).
Individuals may believe free will allows them to work outside of God’s purposes, but that is plainly foolish thinking. If God is truly the Creator and as described within God’s Word, then working outside of God’s knowledge is impossible. God’s Word indicates He knows the beginning from the end and all things in between before they are even committed.
“Only I (God) can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish” (Isaiah 46:10, Living Bible Translation). Continue reading
Israel, God’s Not Finished Part 2
Okay, we left our last blog making the statement that “Even as the Body of Christ must be saved by faith and not by works so too must the nation of Israel be saved by faith and not because they are the sons of Abraham according to the flesh.
- Remember, Ishmael was a son of Abraham and yet not a child of promise or salvation.”
- Ishmael (the first son of Abraham) is the father of the Arab nations and ultimately Islam today.
Israel, God’s Not Yet Finished
Thanks for the great question BG:
I believe every single promise to Israel has already been fulfilled. I read that somewhere. Joshua 21v 45… There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass
We are delighted to receive this question/statement from BG today (the names haven’t really been changed because this is too much fun). This question about Israel’s disposition before our Creator is a common misunderstanding especially for those of the Preteristic persuasion.
Isn’t it wonderful how fair and just is our God; still, He is GOD we serve a Creator Who is wholly and utterly GOD in all that implies.
Long before you or I came into existence our God, the Creator, Continue reading
