Starve Him Out! This Side of the Whirlwind

Starve Him Out!


Many years ago God sent my wife Pam and I to a small church in Sierra Vista, Arizona. The Church was called Shiloh and was pastored by Larry Deason.

I specify this name and church simply because there existed two churches named Shiloh in Sierra Vista at that time.

P. Larry baptizing my lil Girl

At any rate…

Pam and I had been going to Shiloh for nearly a year when my dear friend John “P” came up and said he had a word from the Lord for me.

John turned in his Bible and reads Numbers 33:55.

But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell (Numbers 33:55 KJV). Continue reading


Have You Seen the Mountaintop?

Waiting on the Mountain?

Have you ever wondered about those (misguided?) Christians groups who sold everything and moved up on some mountaintop to wait on the Lord’s return?

Were they just NUTS?

Or were they simply obeying what they believed to be the voice of their Lord?


Better yet, could it have genuinely been the voice of the Lord telling them to go up on that mountain for a reason other than Christ’s return even if Christ’s return was the reason they were told to go? Continue reading

New Wind 2

Thanks! 🙂

Before we begin I’d like to thank all my readers for their continued patronage. I did not make God’s rules, I simple report on insights provided by revelation. Neither I nor my post are infallible and should therefore be scrutinized appropriately. Second Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to show thyself approved unto God…” So, please leave comments or criticisms should you find discrepancies – theologically speaking anywhere within my posts.

Thank you!

New Wine?: True-Life 31

What is New Wine?

Paraphrased version of Luke 5:37:

No one pours “new wine” into old wineskins (you know the wine-bottles of yesteryear). Because when they do, the “new wine” will burst the wineskins; the wine will spill out and the wineskins will be ruined.

Burst Wineskin

Guess what, you are the wineskin.


The “New Wine” is the Word of God formed, prepared and fermented for this – today’s – generation. The New Wine applies to “that” movement of God which is being developed during your lifetime and this new “Work” the Lord is doing to fulfill His purposes for this new “Season, Stage or Generation” of God’s program for humanity.

Meeting Jesus: This Side of the Whirlwind

Do you know Jesus?

Want to?

It is more than possible to know Jesus in a real and personal way.  In fact, this is what the Lord, Jesus, wants.  He wants to know you and love you and  bring blessings into your life.  If you have never said the sinner’s prayer (which is just a format not a requirement) or asked Jesus to be Lord and Savior of your life you can do so today.

True Life 30: Holy Spirit by Snail-Mail

Kathy and the Holy Spirit

Many years ago I was a Roofing-Estimator and occasionally made minor roof repairs.

One early morning estimate came with an eye-opener and great temptation.

It was a fine spring morning  in Tucson, Arizona, North-West side as I was out to take measurement’s for a new roof on this Pueblo styled Condominium.  I had just met with the homeowner, a very pretty young women who had answered the door in a bit of an unprepared fashion for quests or repairmen.  She was very attractive and very scantily clad.  I was a 30 year old Christian male, not dead or too blind to be impacted by a beautiful near-naked-women.

Cashless or Tagged?


What does it take to infiltrate a society’s psyche with something that will destroy the citizen’s soul?



Time to develop some or all of the following:

  1. Make society familiar with the thing
  2. General appeal, time to evoke desire, temptation or want for the item.
  3. You need to develop crowd approval, peer pressure, acceptance among peers.
  4. Social zeal for the item publically.
  5. Advertise the utility or benefit with the product.
  6. Show an added convenience from using the product.
  7. Create real or pseudo disapproval in peers for those without the new product.
  8. Create dependence, need for the item.

Getting Chipped?


, , , , , , , , ,

When will you surrender

The technologies necessary for globally tagging every man, woman, and child is available today. With current technology, it is possible to track and monitor every individual’s transactions and movements. Certain aspects of this technology are currently employed for large herds of livestock or small groups of farm animals. Owners with expensive show or race animals are also utilizing parallel technologies. Analogous technologies can be put into place today for the Mark. Individuals are being implanted with microchips, e-tattoos, or bio-implants with NFC capabilities and simply traced via satellite and GPS over vast areas. Through current and soon improved tracking and monitoring capabilities, the potential to affect and manipulate individuals within any population will be significant.

When are you getting Chipped?

What if you cannot prove the microchips or bio-implants are IN fact the Mark of the Beast to your family and friends.  What if your spouse,. parents or children want to take the tech?

Where do you draw the line?

The Mark of the Beast will be a type of technology which can and will go on or in your skin.  The tech must provide basic identification and financial services.  Let’s not forget upgrading too.  Just because a piece of tech cannot function in one capacity or another does not mean it cannot be upgraded to serve the function.

Who can afford to take the chance?

Don’t be deceived… The Mark of the Beast is here and being purchased and applied even as you are reading this blog.

You should also be aware that people will have more than one style or type of chip implanted in their bodies: one for the car, the business, finance, travel…

The technologies are sneaking up on us.  Corporations in Europe and the United States have adopted Mark of the Beast like technologies already.

Other technologies are being employed to lull the world’s populations into accepting “The Mark” unchallenged.

So what are you going to do when this “soon” becomes the standard in the workplace?

Will you allow your work/corporation to implant a microchip or Bio-implant into your body?

What will you do when getting “Chipped” is the only way to get a job or receive a paycheck?

When will you believe the Bible was telling the truth 2,000 years ago and God is real?

Tozer Said!


I received this excerpt from my Son, Aaron, this morning.  What a joy to receive such correspondence from your own kids.

Thanks Buddy! 🙂

Here is a quote from Tozer which I thoroughly enjoyed, I believe it is from Tozer’s “Sharpening the Axe” devotional.  Still, I’m not really sure.

I have never subscribed to the doctrine that we Christians should live in an intellectual vacuum, refusing to hear what the world has to say. A faith that must be “protected” is no faith at all. If I can retain my faith in Christ only by closing my mind against every criticism, I give proof positive that I am not well convinced of the soundness of my position. The soul that has had a saving encounter with God is sure beyond the possibility of a doubt. His happy testimony will be, “To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side” (Psalm 3:4-6). Such a man will not need to shield himself from the classics nor from comparative religions or philosophy or psychology or science. The Spirit bears witness to Christ deep within his consciousness. His heart knows, though his reason my not yet have caught up with his heart. 


Thank you Lord for Your wisdom and goodness and grace and love and joy and peace and and and and and…
