Sometime in my sleep, in the middle of the night, God put Isaiah 5:10 on my heart. 

“For ten [d] acres of vineyard will yield [only] [e] one bath of wine,
And a homer ([f] six bushels) of seed will produce [only] one ephah of grain.” 

Footnotes (www.biblegateway.com)
  1. Isaiah 5:10 Lit teams of oxen, referring to the area of land that a team of oxen can plow in one day.
  2. Isaiah 5:10 This is only a very rough approximation. The basic Hebrew unit of volume was an egg, which varied greatly, and the estimation was significantly larger than an ordinary chicken egg. A bath was set at 432 eggs—six to eight gallons.
  3. Isaiah 5:10 The actual Hebrew measure was the volume of 4,320 eggs, and an ephah (like a bath, only a dry measure) was 432 eggs.

What does this mean to us? Over the last year, God has taken me on a journey, which I have shared in these blogs, from the lukewarm CHRISTian, to planting, sowing and harvesting, right up to recently, with judgment. 

If you had a garden this year, or know someone who did, you know that 2021 is not a "normal" gardening year for most people. Personally, among other things, I planted some hot pepper plants in the ground around April, which I had started indoors during the winter. Those plants, about five or six of them, stayed two to three inches tall in the ground, for months. Around September, they started to grow a little, maybe an inch or two. Then, in October, when we often start seeing snow in New England, those tiny little pepper plants started getting peppers on them!! Tomatoes grew also, but never ripened on the vine. New pepper and tomato flowers popped out in the middle of October. Cucumber vines withered before the cucumbers were fully grown, and then the cucumbers withered and rotted.

"In that day man will have regard for his Maker,

And his eyes will regard the Holy One of Israel [with awe-inspired reverence]." Isaiah 17:7

Give all thanks, praise and Glory to God, the Most High, the living God, the Great, I AM, because only He can save us. There is no other God.

Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[FEAST AND FAMINE]]>Tue, 31 Aug 2021 13:36:01 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/feast-and-famine

Choose God




You know those people who say God is a myth, a fairy tale, sky daddy? First, if you know God, you know you know God. The more God plays out in my daily life, the more I want to shout it from the housetops!!

"For the word of God is living and active and full of power. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit, and of both joints and marrow, exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart." Hebrews 4:12

Over the last couple of years, God has been very active in my life, to say the least. See God's Words to me here faithfullamb.com/index.html. My journey has been from full-blown, active and willing sinner, to faithful servant of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and our heavenly Father.

God gave my husband and I messages last year, however, of which I did not write about, because, as I have said before, sadly, I do not have the faith of a mustard seed.

"He [Jesus] answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20

But, no matter how stiff-necked (stubborn) man is, if God has a Word to be said, He will insure it is said. Hallelujah! Praise God!

This story begins in 2020.

Last year, my husband said that God showed him a silo, and he started talking about building a silo. We soon realized that was not feasible, primarily because we do not have room to grow enough of anything to fill a silo. But, God had planted the seed in our thoughts and hearts, and, almost simultaneously, God put a spirit of preparing (storing food and necessities) in me. I struggled with this concept at first, because Jesus said, 
“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:” Matthew 6:20

Then, God gave me a vision one night: I was washing dishes, and I began washing with a large, full bottle of dish detergent, and when I was through washing, the bottle was half empty. That would be a lot of dishes. So, I then knew that God was having us store food, because a time was coming when people would need it.

All of this happened last year, and we have been prepping ever since then. I bought a dehydrator, and then two dehydrators. Recently, I bought a pressure canner. The pressure canner is great, but I love the dehydrator. Most nutrients are preserved, the food is lighter, and the jars and mylar bags can hold more. Most importantly, a bowl of rehydrated vegetable soup is absolutely delicious, no seasoning even required, because all of the natural flavors are accentuated when the vegetables are dehydrated. 

In addition to storing food, I was drawn to learning about medicinal, delicious and nutritious weeds that grow in the backyard, and even cultivating some weeds, and collecting seeds from them for next year. And, we planted 13 fruit trees. 

Now, everyone may not have room to grow all of that outside, but you do not need to have a lot of room. We also started learning to cultivate food inside the house. We actually started hydroponics a few years ago, to see how it would go, and, surprisingly, the plants got big over the winter, but then I planted them outside in the spring. But, I now know for sure that I can grow brassica (broccoli, cabbage, etc.) greens inside the house, in water.... and also in dirt (in the house). The leaves of the broccoli plant are just as delicious and nutritious as the actual broccoli itself.

So, plant a tree . . . or, even a weed, grow something, inside or outside! 


​Now, what does the Bible say about famine in the land?

Seven Years of Feast - Seven Years of Famine

Genesis 41

29 "Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

30 And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous."

This morning, God showed me the following Scripture from Jeremiah 14, which is in line with God's Word to me at the beginning of the year regarding Jeremiah 4. You can read about it here: faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-angels-are-here. The entire Book of Jeremiah describes God's wrath to come, but Jeremiah 4 and Jeremiah 14, is what He has shown me.

Famine and the False Prophets

Jeremiah 14


False Prophets

13 "But I said, Alas, Lord God! Behold, the [false] prophets are telling them, ‘You will not see the sword nor will you have famine, but I [the Lord] will give you lasting peace in this place.’ 

14 Then the Lord said to me, 'The [counterfeit] prophets are prophesying lies in My Name. I have neither sent them nor authorized them nor spoken to them. They are prophesying to you made-up visions [pretending to call forth responses from handmade gods], a worthless divination and the deceit of their own mind.

15 Therefore, thus says the Lord concerning the [false] prophets who are prophesying in My Name, although I did not send them—yet they keep saying, 'Sword and famine shall not be in this land’: by sword and famine those prophets shall meet their end and be consumed.

16 And the people to whom they are prophesying will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword; and they will have no one to bury them—neither them, nor their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters. For I will pour out their [own] wickedness on them [and not only on the imposters posing as prophets, for the people could not have been deceived without their own consent].'"


The Blameless Will be Satisfied

Psalm 37

16 "Better is the little of the righteous [who seek the will of God]

Than the abundance (riches) of many wicked (godless).

17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken,

But the Lord upholds and sustains the righteous [who seek Him].

18 The Lord knows the days of the blameless,

And their inheritance will continue forever.

19 They will not be ashamed in the time of evil,

And in the days of famine they will have plenty and be satisfied."


20 But the wicked (ungodly) will perish,

And the enemies of the Lord will be like the glory of the pastures and like the fat of lambs [that is consumed in smoke],

They vanish—like smoke they vanish away.

21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back,

But the righteous is gracious and kind and gives.

22 For those blessed by God will [at last] inherit the land,

But those cursed by Him will be cut off."


"The Lord knows the days of the blameless . . . And in the days of famine they will have plenty and be satisfied."


Acts 3

19 "So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];

20 and that He may send [to you] Jesus, the Christ, who has been appointed for you,

21 whom heaven must keep until the time for the [complete] restoration of all things about which God promised through the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.

22 Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your countrymen; you shall listen to Him and obey everything He tells you.

23 And it will be that every person that does not listen to and heed that Prophet will be utterly destroyed from among the people.’

24 Indeed, all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those who came after him, also announced these days.

25 You are the sons (descendants) of the prophets and [heirs] of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed (descendant) all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’

26 It was for you first of all that God raised up His Servant and Son [Jesus], and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways.”


Matthew 13:15

"'For this nation’s heart has grown hard,

And with their ears they hardly hear,

And they have [tightly] closed their eyes,

Otherwise they would see with their eyes,

And hear with their ears,

And understand with their heart, and turn [to Me]


And I would heal them [spiritually].’"


Isaiah 45:17 

"Israel has been saved by the Lord

With an everlasting salvation;

You will not be put to shame or humiliated for all eternity."


Isaiah 45:22 “Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other."


Choose God and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, or Go To Hell. There is no other choice.


Today's Prayercourtesty of: https://blessedbeliever.com/prayer-points/

Oh, Heavenly Father, living God, most gracious, just and merciful, we pray that You continue to shine Your Light on the heavens and the earth, exposing all darkness, from east to west and north to south. Shine Your Light into the hearts of Your children, waking them out of their slumber in Jesus.

Father, I thank you for waking me up, and for not giving up on me. You are a patient and loving Father, and we know that you want all of your sheep to find the way back to Your Flock. We pray for Your Great Awakening of the World, and the Great Harvest promised by You through Your Word and Prophets, thirty-, sixty- or an hundredfold. Hallelujah! 

Father, we pray that Your children everywhere find you, come back to you, and are healed, before the fury of your recompense on the World.

Father, we know we have broken your laws and our sins have separated us from you. We are truly sorry, and now we want to turn away from our past sinful life toward you.

Please forgive us, and help us avoid sinning again. We believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died for our sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears our prayers. We invite Jesus to become the Lord of our lives, to rule and reign in our hearts, from this day forward.

Please send your Holy Spirit to help us obey You, and to do Your Will for the rest of our lives.

We pray for all of these things in Jesus' name.

Hallelujah! Praise God, Most High, the Great I Am, the creator of the heavens and the earth, our heavenly Father. 

Amen! Amen! Amen!

<![CDATA[THE VEIL]]>Sat, 28 Aug 2021 17:45:29 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-veil


Recently, I heard that if you read the Bible from start to finish, God will give you revelations about His Word.

Psalm 1:1-2

"Blessed is the man . . . 2 . . . (whose) delight is in the law of the Lord, And on His law [His precepts and teachings (commandments)] he meditates day and night."

So, I started reading Genesis about 10 days ago. Somewhere around Deuteronomy is when things got supernaturally weird. 

Now, before this incident, the only Biblical veil I was aware of was the veil Moses used to cover God's glory (Shekinah) that radiated from his (Moses') face after leaving God's presence. 34 . . . "
When he came out and he told the Israelites what he had been commanded [by God], 35 the Israelites would see the face of Moses, how his skin shone [with a unique radiance]. So Moses put the veil on his face again until he went in to speak with God." Exodus 34

Around the weekend of August 21, during Hurricane Henri, which hit areas of the northeast hard, but pretty much missed us, I felt very oppressed, depressed, suppressed and repressed, and my husband felt it as well, even to a greater degree. I am a firm believer that people turn to God the most in despair, so sitting next to my husband at the computer desk, I grabbed his hand and began praying out loud. It was not long before we were both sobbing, as I was trying to get the words out. Repenting, begging for forgiveness, crying out for His Glory. Of course, I had no specific idea of why I was doing that, at that moment. I now believe God (God's Spirit) willed it. 

Later that night, when we talked about it again, I said it felt like a veil over me, and my husband agreed, it felt like a veil. We went to bed, and had an uneventful sleep.

I believe it was a couple of days later, around August 23, my husband said, the veil is gone, and I agreed.


"but whenever a person turns [in repentance and faith] to the Lord, the veil is taken away." 1 Corinthians 3:16

God is Great All The Time, and He is Truly Amazing! Hallelujah! Praise God! 

Fast forward about five days. I am still reading the Bible start to finish, and I am up to Joshua now. I got off on a little tangent, as I sometimes do, and did a search on "kjv to this day," which will be the subject of another blog, but I found the following Scripture:

2 Corinthians 3

14 "
But [in fact] their minds were hardened [for they had lost the ability to understand]; for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is removed [only] in Christ. 

15 But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil [of blindness] lies over their heart; 

16 but whenever a person turns [in repentance and faith] to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom].

18 And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror (reflection) the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit."

"We . . . reflect the Lord's Glory." 2 Corinthians 3:18

All Glory and Praise to God in the Highest. Hallelujah! Thank you, heavenly Father, for all of our blessings, of which we are unworthy sinners.

Thank you, Jesus, my Savior!

​Amen! Amen! Amen!

<![CDATA[WHITE AS SNOW]]>Fri, 09 Jul 2021 16:27:58 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/white-as-snow
First, it cannot be said enough that prayer is amazing. Both of the following Scriptures are just and true:

"And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive." Matthew 21:22

“And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” 1 John 3:22

All Glory to God in the Highest. Hallelujah!

So, on to "White as Snow." Last weekend, I got out of bed to pray during the evening, as I sometimes do, although not as often as I know that I should. I prayed for God to give me insight into what was going on at that moment in the world, in His Plan. I also prayed to see His face and have His loving arms wrapped around me. I prayed for many things, but those two are related to this story. Then, I went back to bed, and to sleep.

At some point after that, God gave me a vision, where I looked out a window and saw snow. I did not even have to pull out my Bible and research Scripture to know that He had answered both of my questions or requests.

In the Bible, snow represents the cleansing of sin: "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." Isaiah 1:18


So, first, God is cleansing sin in the world and in America.

Snow also represents the image of God: "His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire." Revelation 1:14

Honestly, God could not have picked a better image with which to show me Himself. The first snows of the year always make me smile, and make me feel warm and fuzzy. Thank you, Lord. 

And, so second, we know that He answers prayers with amazing consideration and love.

He truly is great all of the time! Hallelujah! Praise God.

<![CDATA[ALGORITHM IS NOT MAN'S RHYTHM]]>Wed, 17 Mar 2021 13:48:25 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/algorithm-is-not-mans-rhythm

WAKE UP, AMERICA! - MASSIVE ASH AND DUST STORM
CREEPING IN FROM GUATEMALA VOLCANO ERUPTIONS,
WITH SULFUR OXIDE CLOUD (volcano gas)
OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN OVER MIDWEST
​March 17, 2021

OVER 52 VOLCANOES
​ERUPTING WORLDWIDE

MAN, THE FINAL FRONTIER?

"SpaceX has received regulatory approval from the Federal Communications Commission to deploy up to 12,000 satellites, and is planning to launch around 30,000 more."

"For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it." Jeremiah 4:28 (See the videos above about world and USA weather.) ​

So, what's all this about algorithms? Well, algorithm is not man's rhythm, the rhythm of life, given by God when He created all things. Algorithm is artificial intelligence: Like "The Terminator," I'll Be Back, SkyNet, take over the world, artificial intelligence ... or, at least the beginning of it.

Yesterday, I read that Elon Musk's Space-X sent 180 satellites into space in the last 10 days for the company, SatLink. 
(See article from Newsweek above.)  Seemed odd to me, but what do I know about satellites? The first thing that came to my mind was, it was bad enough we pollute the earth, now we are polluting outer space. Still a valid point, I think.

This morning, however, I saw a prophet say that God said, The rhythm of life flows along with us, flows right along with us, but the algorithm is death. And then he referred to Ecclesiastes 10:20 ". . . and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter. . ."  "Bird of the air": Satellites?! ". . . that which hath wings shall tell the matter": cell phones, computers, artificial intelligence controlling our homes?! . . . The algorithm is death?!

Algorithm Definition: "A set of mathematical instructions or rules that, especially if given to a computer, will help to calculate an answer to a problem."

"The algorithm is death"!!


But, what exactly is God telling us? Clearly, it is a warning. "They" are listening to us! And, just like they spied on President Trump's campaign, we already know they ARE spying on us as well. It is no coincidence that it seems like you can merely think about something, and all of a sudden, the ads show up for it on your phone or computer. Now, they use these capabilities to get rich off of us with advertising, but God has shown us, through His prophet(s), that their capability and/or intent is to use this technology against us at some point in the future, to weed out dissenters, those who dare to deny them, their vaccinations, or their trampling of our Constitutional rights.

Thus, the Scripture, "
and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber . . ." Because, just like China is rounding up its citizens now in 2021, and putting them in "Internment Camps," "for the common good," God is warning us to be careful of what we say, even in our own homes, lest we be "rounded up" as well. 

I know this sounds insane, but does it really? Think about it, look at the sequence of events I present herein, and God's Word to me over the last year in my blogs, most importantly do your own research, and determine for yourself.

For instance, as I was writing this, I was reminded of, and drawn back to, my blog titled, "The Angels Are Here," dated February 9, 2021, (You can see that blog by clicking here: faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-angels-are-here), which is a breakdown of Jeremiah 4. I do feel God has been warning me over the last year, much the same as with Judah and Jerusalem in Jeremiah, He will not turn away His wrath, for our sins and iniquities are too great in His eyes and we have not repented, or turned away from our sin.

So, God will bring destruction to our cities, but not yet a full end; a remnant will remain to repopulate the earth. And we know from Scripture that God often uses our enemies to punish us. The algorithm is death.

Stay with me for a few minutes now, because I am going to pull together something else God gave me a few weeks ago, and which He is just now bringing together for me into a cohesive thought, story or plan.

So, yes, trouble is coming to America, and to the world, because God wants ALL of His children to return to Him, and to turn away from sin. Unfortunately, and sadly, in despair is when man turns to God the most, but this is not the end. Again, refer to Jeremiah 4. Not the end, and not at this time!?

So, in my sleep on the evening of February 21, 2021, God gave me the word "Josiah." Although I did not know specifically who Josiah was, I felt certain I would find him in the Bible, and I did, beginning at 2 Kings 22 and at 2 Chronicles 33:25, and Jeremiah also talks about Josiah at Jeremiah 3:6. I recommend everyone read these passages. Some theologians and scholars agree that Josiah, even though only eight years old when he began to rule, may have been God's second greatest king of Jerusalem, second only to King David, but even so, his greatness was not enough to quench God's anger at the evildoings of his grandfather, Manasseh.

The Scripture relevant to today's message, however, is as follows:

2 Kings 22: 16-20

16 "Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:

17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

18 But to the king of Judah which sent you to enquire of the Lord, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, As touching the words which thou hast heard;

19 Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the Lord, when thou heard what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and have rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith the Lord.

20 Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again."

"But to the king of Judah [a/k/a Josiah] [a/k/a Trump] which sent you to enquire of the Lord . . ." Not that Trump is actually Josiah reincarnated, but that God showed me Jeremiah and Josiah to show what is going to happen to the world, but not until after Trump finishes his second term, or, more likely, after his natural, peaceful death, as in Josiah.


So, now you know why it has taken me so long to write this blog. How do you write a blog to tell people destruction is coming? But, God kept giving me pieces over the last couple of weeks, until I had His full Word, which could no longer be denied.

Trump won. I know it. You know it. God knows it, too! (See above image of my Fakebook post above dated December 7, 2020.) "Trump won! (God Won!) Roe v. Wade will be overturned! Abortion will be abolished." This is what God told me after the fraudulent 2020 election. And, He has told MANY great prophets that Trump won two terms and that president number 46 does not exist at this time.

So, in conclusion, everything that God has shared with me, which I have written about in my blogs under "Walk With God," has pointed to one message: REPENT! Turn away from sin. This DOES NOT mean we have four years (until the end of Trump's second term), and/or until President Trump passes away, to "find God." No, God has made it clear to me, the time is at hand now to choose the narrow path: (see my blog here: "The Narrow Gate": faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-narrow-path, and, I believe He has told me that, for those involved in this event, there will be no other opportunity in this lifetime to choose sides, good or evil.

Choose God Now! 

And, 

"Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me." Job 38:3

Our Prayer Today:

Psalm 18:1-50

1 "I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

24 Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

28 For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God?

32 It is God that girds me with strength, and makes my way perfect.

33 He makes my feet like hinds' feet, and sets me upon my high places.

34 He teaches my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the Lord, but he answered them not.

42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

46 The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

47 It is God that avenges me, and subdues the people under me.

48 He delivers me from mine enemies: yea, thou lifts me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.

49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.

50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and shews mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore."

​Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

The night of the March 8, I had a night of fitful and restless sleep. I had a dream, or vision, or out-of-body experience, not sure what to call it. I kept hearing or seeing the word, "children" over and over again, continuously. I didn't see any children, so it was not like a dream. It was just the word, "children, children children" over and over again, all night long. I wasn't scared or fearful in any way, so it was not like a nightmare.  I may have felt concern, relief, joy, but not fear.

​I say, I had a fitful and restless sleep, because it was: I did not sleep well; I had dark circles under my eyes in the morning; and, I was tired, exhausted really, like I had run a marathon, and sore from my hips to my shoulders, as if I had used muscles I had never used before. 

I cannot explain the experience beyond describing it, and God has not given me any further indication of what it was about. But, one thing I know for sure: 

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20

Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus! Amen! Amen! Amen!

<![CDATA["THE HARVEST HAS BEGUN"]]>Thu, 18 Feb 2021 14:47:52 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-harvest-has-begun"THE HARVEST HAS BEGUN" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)



Last night, God gave me a vision of masses of hands in the air, moving about, no faces, just hands. And, then later, the words, "The Harvest Has Begun." Both of these were, again, only snapshots. I will have to write a blog soon on why I think God only gives me snapshots, but for now, let's see if we can decipher what He wanted me to know. First of all, the hands in the air, moving about, could be celebration, or weeping and gnashing of teeth, or, more likely, both.

He first led me to the Book of Isaiah this morning, so I must start there. Most of my blogs in "Walk With God" are along the same lines: God will not overlook sin; judgment; and, repentance.

This blog, however, and the last one, "The Angels are Here," are more about seedtime and harvest, and reaping what we sow. The time is at hand.

Isaiah 9:6-21

6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,

10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

11 Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;

12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

13 For the people turn not unto him that smites them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.

14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.

15 The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the prophet that teaches lies, he is the tail.

16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

17 Therefore the LORD shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

18 For wickedness burns as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.

19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.

20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:

21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still."

Isaiah 10:1-34

1 "Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;

To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!

And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?

Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.

I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

Howbeit he means not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few.

For he saith, Are not my princes altogether kings?

Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus?

10 As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria;

11 Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?

12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.

13 For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:

14 And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.

15 Shall the axe boast itself against him that hews therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shakes it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood.

16 Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.

17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;

18 And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standard-bearer faints.

19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.

21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.

22 For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.


  • Wesley's Notes on ​Isaiah 10:22: A remnant - Or, a remnant only. The consumption - The destruction of Israel was already decreed by the fixed counsel of God, and therefore must needs be executed, and like a deluge overflow them. Righteousness - With justice, and yet with clemency, inasmuch as he has spared a considerable remnant of them, when he might have destroyed them utterly.

23 For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.

24 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt.

25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction.

26 And the Lord of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt.

27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

28 He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages:

29 They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled.

30 Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to be heard unto Laish, O poor Anathoth.

31 Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee.

32 As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.

33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled.

34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one."

Isaiah 10:20-34 Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710, at KingJamesBibleOnline.com.

"By our afflictions we may learn not to make creatures our confidence. Those only can with comfort stay upon God, who return to him in truth, not in pretense and profession only. God will justly bring this wasting away on a provoking people, but will graciously set bounds to it. It is against the mind and will of God that his people, whatever happens, should give way to fear. God's anger against his people is but for a moment; and when that is turned from us, we need not fear the fury of man. The rod with which he corrected his people, shall not only be laid aside, but thrown into the fire.

To encourage God's people, the prophet puts them in mind of what God had formerly done against the enemies of his church. God's people shall be delivered from the Assyrians. Some think it looks to the deliverance of the Jews out of their captivity; and further yet, to the redemption of believers from the tyranny of sin and Satan. And this, "because of the anointing;" for his people Israel's sake, the believers among them that had received the unction [anointing] of Divine grace. And for the sake of the Messiah, the Anointed of God.

Verses 28-34 are a prophetical description of Sennacherib's march towards Jerusalem, when he threatened to destroy that city. Then the Lord, in whom Hezekiah trusted, cut down his army like the hewing of a forest.

Let us apply what is here written, to like matters in other ages of the church of Christ. Because of the anointing of our great Redeemer, the yoke of every antichrist must be broken from off his church: and if our souls partake of the unction [anointing] of the Holy Spirit, complete and eternal deliverances will be secured to us."

So, what does all of this mean, and what does it have to do with "The Harvest Has Begun"? Well, plenty. He that sows iniquity or trouble will reap a harvest of woe or trouble. In other words, "The Harvest Has Begun," and we will reap what we have sown. Galatians 6:7 "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap."

Proverbs 22:7-9 ERV

7 "The rich rule over the poor. The one who borrows is a slave to the one who lends.

Those who spread trouble will harvest trouble. In the end, they will be destroyed for the trouble they caused.

Generous people will be blessed, because they share their food with the poor."

God says, in Genesis 8:22, "While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

Gill's Expedition of the Entire Bible at
biblehub.com/commentaries/genesis/8-22.htm

"Seedtime and harvest," in a mystic, Spiritual or supernatural (Godly) sense, denotes the continuance of the church of God in the world, as long as it endures, and its various changes or variations and revolutions. Sometimes, it is a time of sowing the precious seed of the Word; and sometimes it is an harvest, a gathering of souls into it. Sometimes, it is a winter season with it, and all things seem withered and dead; and at other times it is summer, and all things look smiling and cheerful. Sometimes, it is in a state of coldness and indifference, and at other times exposed to the heat of persecution, and more warm and zealous usually then. Sometimes, it is night with it, and sometimes day, and so it is like to be, until that state takes place described in Revelation 7:16.

Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."

Good OR bad.

Luke 10:1-2 "After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest."

And, finally, 1 Corinthians 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

His children, believers, who have been dead in Jesus Christ, are being [harvested] raised incorruptible, and being changed ... forever.

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57

And on the reverse side of the coin, Romans 1:28 “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” And it will be that much harder, if not impossible, to turn back to Jesus and be healed.

"Change your hearts! And show by the way you live that you have changed." Matthew 3:8

Hallelujah! Praise God!

Our Prayer for You Today:

"Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." Hebrews 13:20-21

<![CDATA["THE ANGELS ARE HERE!"]]>Tue, 09 Feb 2021 16:01:40 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-angels-are-here

"THE ANGELS ARE HERE" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)

 

I woke up, in the wee hours (we don't have a clock in the bedroom, so I don't know exactly), maybe between 3:00 am to 5:00 am. My husband said something to me, and I said, "The Angels are Here." We went back to sleep. The next morning, I was at my computer, reading Scripture, and I remembered my exclamation last night, "The Angels are Here!"

I prayed for God to give me guidance on what Scripture He wanted me to refer to regarding "The Angels are Here!" And right away, the first Scripture I was directed to was Jeremiah 4

Following is a comprehensive breakdown from bible-studys.org:

Jeremiah Chapter 4:1-4

1 "If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.

And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.

For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings."

These verses conclude the message begun at Jeremiah 3:6: "The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot."

In Jeremiah 4:3, we see an admonition to weed out totally their present practices and “break up” their “fallow ground,” or clear the field of weeds, and then “sow” or plant the new seeds of spiritual fruitfulness for God.

This has been God's message to me for the last year. We must turn back to God wholly and fully, in the full meaning of His Word, without lukewarmness, and without political correctness. God will not be politically correct when He comes to punish the sinners. We will see His full fury and recompense.

The path to heaven is narrow and difficult to follow for a reason. Few will find it. But the path to hell is wide, and many will find it.

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Matthew 7:13-14

And, following is a thorough examination of each verse in Jeremiah 4, which God led me to this morning to fulfill His message to me that "The Angels Are Here":

Jeremiah 4:1 "If thou wilt return, O Israel, says the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove."

"Abominations": Literally, things of shame, the idols which Israel had worshipped.

"Then shalt thou not remove": We see again, an offer from God to forgive them and start them all over. God will not take them back until they give up their idols. Repent! When they give up their idols, or turn away from sin, God will welcome them back.

And, Verse 2:

Jeremiah 4:2 "And thou shalt swear, The LORD lives, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory."

God’s covenant with Abraham had stressed that all peoples would be blessed through him, but Judah’s disobedience had prevented them from being the instrument of God’s blessing.

This is speaking of the promise God made to Abraham, that all the nations would be blessed through Him. There was only one condition: They must follow God with all their heart. Look at the following Scripture for insight into what God expected from them.

Romans 10:9 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." It is not enough to just believe in your heart. You must confess with your mouth.

Examining Verse 3:

Jeremiah 4:3 "For thus says the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns."

Break up your fallow ground": Jeremiah appealed for a spiritual turnabout from sinful, wasteful lives. He pictured this as the plowing of ground, formerly hard and unproductive due to weeds, in order to make it useful for sowing.

Hear the Parable of the Sower, planting seeds, in Matthew 13:18-23:

18 "Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

19 When any one hears the word of the kingdom, and understands it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that hears the word, and anon with joy receives it;

21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but endures for a while: for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, by and by he is offended.

22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that hears the word, and understands it; which also bears fruit, and brings forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."

Continuing with Jeremiah 4:3, the word "fallow" in means freshly plowed, or to prepare the heart, or repent, turn away from sin, and then plant the seed of the Word. The heart unprepared, without repentance, will not receive the seed of the Word. It will be choked out with the cares of the world and the sins of the flesh.

And,

Jeremiah 4:4 "Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings."

Circumcise”: It was also a symbol of the need for the heart to be cleansed from sin’s deadly disease. The really essential surgery needed to happen on the inside, where God calls for taking away fleshly things that keep the heart from being spiritually devoted to Him and from true faith in Him and His will.

As Apostle Paul said in Romans 2:29 "But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God."

Jeremiah later expanded on this idea:

Jeremiah 31:31-34

31 "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD::: 

​, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

32 "Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."

God selected the reproductive organ, as in surgical circumcision, as the location of the symbol for man’s need of cleansing for sin, because it is the instrument most indicative of his depravity, for by sexual sin, he reproduces generations of sinners.

Jeremiah said, “Circumcise yourselves to the Lord”, then added the more graphic phrase, “take away the foreskins of your heart.” This is the kind of internal, spiritual operation that only God can do.

We find in the Scripture above that God is not satisfied with just the formality of circumcision, but wanted the heart of the people to be pure. If they do not learn to follow God with all their heart, He will destroy them.

1 Samuel 12:24 "Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart; for consider how great things he hath done for you."
 
Jeremiah 4:5-8: God instructed Jeremiah to declare “for I will bring evil from the north” and destruction would come. The invasion might take the form of a foreign army, but the driving force would be “the fierce anger of the LORD.”

The rest of the Jeremiah 4 contains a new message emphasizing the proclamation of God’s judgment. The sounding of the “trumpet” was a well-known sign of danger in the ancient Near East (Hosea 5:8; 8:1; Joel 2:1) or Amos 3:6  "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?"

The sounding of the trumpet could also mark a time of national, and personal, self-examination as shown in Joel 2:15-17

15 "Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?"

Moving on to  Jeremiah 4:5 "Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defensed cities."

The Lord directs the prophet to lay before the people a view of their destruction as near at hand. Who calls upon some persons as a sort of heralds, to publish and declare in the land of Judea and Jerusalem what follows.

"Blow ye the trumpet in the land":  As an alarm of an approaching enemy, and of an invasion by him and of danger from him. And this was to be done, not in order to gather together, and put themselves in a posture of defense to meet the enemy and give him battle, but to get together that were in the fields, and in country villages, and hide themselves from him.

"Cry, gather together, and say": Or cry with a full mouth, with a loud voice, that all might hear, which shows imminent danger.

"Assemble yourselves and let us go into the defensed cities": Such as Jerusalem, and others, where they might think themselves safe and secure.

Matthew 24:16 "Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:"

This declaration to God was to be throughout their land. The blowing of the trumpet was for two things. It gathered them for worship or for war.
 
Jeremiah 4:6-7: “Evil from the north”: This evil is Babylon’s army which would invade from that direction. The “lion” on the prowl fit Babylon because of its conquering power, and Babylon was symbolized by the winged lions guarding its royal court. Many details in Jeremiah 4 graphically depict warriors in conquest.

Breaking down Verse 6:

Jeremiah 4:6 "Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction."

Not on the tower of Zion, but on some high place pointing to Zion, and directing the country people to flee thither for safety. For the setting up of the standard here is not for enlisting of soldiers in order to fight, but as a sign of danger, and a direction where to flee from it.

"Retire": Gather yourselves together in order to flee. Though some render it, "be ye strengthened"; take heart, and play the man. But this does not seem so agreeable to the context.

"Stay not": Or, "stand not." Stand not in the place ye are in, but move from it in all haste, because of present danger.

"For I will bring evil from the north”: From Babylon, as some have interpreted, which lay north to the land of Israel. And so designs the captivity Judah should be brought into there.

"And a great destruction" or, "breach," which the Babylonians should make on the inhabitants of Judea and Jerusalem.

The standard was to be raised pointing to Jerusalem or the church. The standard must be raised by God's people for others to follow. The road into Jerusalem that the enemy would come on, led to the north.

And, Verse 7:

Jeremiah 4:7 "The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant."

The descending judgment of Babylon is described as a “lion” coming up from his “thicket.”

The near interpretation is Nebuchadnezzar coming against them. Gentiles here, possibly means nations. The thicket could be hell, or place of destruction. Notice also where he came from. It was from his place. The land to be made desolate is Israel.

Moving on to Verse 8:

Jeremiah 4:8 "For this gird you with sackcloth, lament and howl: for the fierce anger of the LORD is not turned back from us."

Sackcloth” was the traditional attire of grief and repentance. The sackcloth here is the garment of mourning. When the LORD is angry with His people, He will allow the enemy to attack them. God controls Satan the same as He controls everyone else. God can stop him at any time. 

And, Verse 9:

Jeremiah 4:9 "And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the LORD, that the heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes; and the priests shall be astonished, and the prophets shall wonder."

Meaning, when Nebuchadnezzar should come up from Babylon into the land of Judea, and lay waste the cities thereof, and besiege Jerusalem.

"That the heart of the king shall perish": Meaning Zedekiah king of Judah, who should be in the utmost fright and consternation, not knowing what to do, being devoid both of wisdom and courage. “And Zedekiah the king said unto Jeremiah, I am afraid of the Jews that are fallen to the Chaldeans, lest they deliver me into their hand, and they mock me.”  Jeremiah 38:19

"And the heart of the princes": Who being seized with the same panic, and at their wits' end, would not be able to give any advice and counsel to the king. So that the people would have no help from the king and his nobles, in whom they put their confidence.

"And the priests shall be astonished": The idolatrous priests, whose service would now cease, and whose idols would not save them.

"And the prophets shall wonder": Also, false prophets, who prophesied peace, and now they shall see it was a lie they prophesied, since sudden destruction now comes upon them.

In a situation like this, the king has no more protection than the people. In many cases he has less. These heathen people will not respect the office of the priest either. God will allow this because He is angry with His people.

Verse 10:

Jeremiah 4:10 "Then said I, Ah, LORD GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reaches unto the soul."

Many suggestions have been given as to the meaning of this difficult verse. One theory builds upon a textual variant found in a few ancient manuscripts that reads “said they” for “said I,” attributing the words to Judah’s false leaders. Some lay great stress on Jeremiah’s exhausted emotions. Perhaps it is best to see the verse as an expression of Jeremiah’s realization that God, in His sovereign wisdom, was allowing Judah and Jerusalem to use their own destiny by believing their own lies, even though He continued to urge their repentance.

Jeremiah 4:14-18

14 "O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?

15 For a voice declares from Dan, and publishes affliction from mount Ephraim.

16 Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah.

17 As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the Lord.

18 Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reaches unto thine heart."

Breaking down Verse 10: “Surely thou hast greatly deceived this people”:

Let's look at Habakkuk 1:12-17

12 "Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die. O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.

13 Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore look thou upon them that deal treacherously, and hold thy tongue when the wicked devours the man that is more righteous than he?

14 And makes men as the fishes of the sea, as the creeping things, that have no ruler over them?

15 They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.

16 Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.

17 Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?"

Like Habakkuk, Jeremiah was horrified at these words of judgment, contrasting the prevailing hope of peace. God is sometimes described as if doing a thing He merely permits, such as allowing false prophets, who delude themselves, to also deceive a sinful people into thinking peace would follow. God sees how people insist on their delusions, and lets it happen.

Jeremiah was not happy with his role, offering “peace” to the people while God was setting events in motion that would send them into exile. In the face of humanity’s persistent rebellion, God has determined that humans will be without excuse when judgment comes.

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;" Romans 1:18

God had promised there would be peace in Jerusalem. The problem is that God did not mean that very day, but a time in the future. It is as if Jeremiah was questioning God's intentions here. Men will try to bring peace to this region, but there will be no true peace until the King of Peace comes to the earth and establishes His kingdom. Then, there will be peace in Jerusalem.

Moving on to Verse 11:

Jeremiah 4:11 "At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of my people, not to fan, nor to cleanse,"

Though the revelation of the certainty of Judah's ruin forces from Jeremiah a cry of despair, yet it is but for a moment. He immediately returns to the delivery of God's message.

"A dry wind": Literally, A clear wind, which probably meant the Samum, a dry parching east wind blowing from the Arabian Desert, before which vegetation withers, and human life becomes intolerable.

"Not to fan": The Syrian farmers make great use of the wind for separating the chaff from the grain: but when the Samum blows, labor becomes impossible. It is not for use, but for destruction.

The Jews are like a hot wind that brings no blessing. This wind is not the wind of the Holy Spirit. This wind does not cleanse or bless. The wind of the Spirit comes from an unknown place and brings blessings. In verse 11, the wind comes from the mountain where the false gods were worshipped.

Next, Jeremiah 4:12 "Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now also will I give sentence against them."

"From those places: Rather, "a wind fuller (that is, more impetuous), than those winds" which fan the corn.

"Unto me," "for Me": as My [God's] instrument for executing My [His] purpose.

"Sentence": Judgments against them. Jeremiah 1:16 "And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands." This is an ill wind that brings no good, for God is the One who brings judgment against them.

And, Verse 13:

Jeremiah 4:13 "Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled."

This verse notes the vast number, or the suddenness, of them.

Let's also look at Isaiah 60:1-3 for insight:

1 "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising."

And, Hebrews 12:1 "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,"

When not expected, clouds often rising all of a sudden, and overspreading the whole face of the heavens. Or rather, the great speed and swiftness with which Nebuchadnezzar shall march against them.

Isaiah 19:1 "The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD  rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it," or, as described by the swiftness of eagles in Jeremiah 48:8, "And the spoiler shall come upon every city, and no city shall escape: the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed, as the Lord hath spoken."

And, continuing to breakdown Verse 13:

"His chariots shall be as a whirlwind": Which besides the swiftness notes also the confusion and amazement that they will cause.

"And the LORD discomfited [confused] Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet." Judges 4:15

"Woe unto us! for we are spoiled": The dreadful apprehensions that the people have of their woeful condition, or possibly the words of the prophet lamenting their misery.

Babylon does come against these people and overcomes them. We must remember that God brings this as judgment against His people. In the next few Scriptures, we will see God's power in the wind, or the whirlwind, and the elements in general.

Nahum 1:3 "The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet."

Matthew 24:30 "And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

Daniel 7:2 "Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea."

Job 38:35 "Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?"

We can see from this, that it is God who controls the elements of the earth.

Moving on to Verse 14:

Jeremiah 4:14 "O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?"

Wash”: Jeremiah continued to appeal for a dealing with sin so that national destruction might be averted while there was still time to repent.

"Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment." Jeremiah 4:20  (compare Jeremiah 7 and 26).

Jeremiah cries out to Jerusalem to repent and be saved. It is as if he is saying, why can't you see why this trouble is coming? They imagine a vain thing. They appear to be caught up in their own values, overlooking the needs of others.

God wants man to be saved so badly, that He sent His only Son to save us. Man has a part in his own salvation. He must wash in the blood of the precious Lamb.

And, Verse 15:

Jeremiah 4:15 "For a voice declares from Dan, and publishes affliction from mount Ephraim."

"Affliction": From a root signifying worthlessness, it is used both for wickedness and for misery. Thus, the "iniquity" of Judah proves also to be her "affliction," as being the cause of the ruin inflicted by the enemy.

It appears the enemy comes by the land of Dan and mount Ephraim. The affliction had already begun.

And next, Verse 16:

Jeremiah 4:16 "Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah."

These are either the nations in Judea, or these words are a proclamation, summoning in the nations by the Chaldeans, as it were, in pursuance of a commission from God, to bring great armies together against Jerusalem. Or they are the prophets turning away from Judah, as despairing of doing any good upon them, and calling for the nations to execute God’s sentence.

"Watchers": Military watchers, i.e. the Chaldean soldiers, that shall so carefully and watchfully encompass Jerusalem, that none shall escape. Possibly a metaphor from hunters, that in hunting their prey lay wait at every passage, that the game may not escape.

Also see, 2 Kings 25:4-5

4 "And the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between two walls, which is by the king's garden: (now the Chaldees were against the city round about:) and the king went the way toward the plain.

And the army of the Chaldees pursued after the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho: and all his army were scattered from him."

And, continuing with Verse 16:

"Give out their voice": They will proclaim war against them, or a shout, either encouraging soldiers to the battle, or triumphing after the victory. Or the outcries that they will make, such as the Turks now make in their onsets.

"The young lions roared upon him, and yelled, and they made his land waste: his cities are burned without inhabitant." Jeremiah 2:15 

All of the countries surrounding Judah are to take notice of the fact of the attack against Judah. God allows them to speak evil about Judah, because He is angry with them. The Babylonians may be performing the physical battle, but it is really God who has come against Judah. He is using Babylon for His purpose.

And, next, Verse 17:

Jeremiah 4:17 "As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the LORD."

As those that are set to watch a field, in which are fruit and corn of any sort, that thieves and robbers, and wild beasts, may not enter to waste and destroy, and are placed on all sides for that purpose. So the Chaldeans were round about Jerusalem, that none could make their escape out of it.

2 Kings 25:4 "And the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between two walls, which is by the king's garden: (now the Chaldees were against the city round about:) and the king went the way toward the plain." 

Next,

"Because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the LORD": It was not without reason that the LORD suffered the Chaldeans to come against Jerusalem, besiege and take it. The inhabitants of Jerusalem had rebelled against him, their King and their God. And, therefore, he delivers them up into the hands of another lord, a cruel one. They had provoked him to anger with their sins, and caused him to stir up his wrath against them in this way. Rebellion against a prince, or against a parent, is a provoking sin. 

1 Samuel 15:23 "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king."

They have surrounded her as the keepers of the field do. They rebelled against God, and God brought this punishment on them.

Next, Verse 18:

Jeremiah 4:18 "Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reaches unto thine heart."

The way in which they walked, which was an evil one, and the actions which they committed, their idolatries, backslidings and rebellions, before spoken of in this and the preceding chapter, were the cause of this siege, and those calamities coming upon them. They had none to blame but themselves. It was their own sinful ways and works which brought this ruin and destruction on them.

"This is thy wickedness," The fruit of thy wickedness; or, "this thy calamity": That is, is owing to these things; so the word is rendered in Psalm 141:5 "Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities."

"Because it is bitter": Jeremiah 2:19 "Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the LORD God of hosts."

Not sin but the punishment of it. The calamity before mentioned, which was hard and heavy, and grievous to be borne, and yet very just, it was by way of retaliation. "They had bitterly provoked the Lord," as the word may be rendered in the preceding verse, and now he sends them a bitter calamity and a heavy judgment.

"Because it reaches unto thine heart": Into the midst of them and utterly destroyed them. The two last clauses may be rendered, "though it is bitter, though it reaches unto thine heart," though it is such a sore distress, and such an utter destruction, yet it was to be ascribed to nothing else but their own sins and transgressions.

Their own sin brought this evil upon them. They were wicked and their bondage will be bitter. They have displeased God.
 
In, Jeremiah Verses 19 - 22, Jeremiah had pain in his “heart” because there was nothing he could do to avert the coming disaster. God also laments the condition of the people who are “foolish” in the face of His judgment.

Examinining Verse 19 more closely,

Jeremiah 4:19 "My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war."

Here begins the woeful complaint of, and the great trouble the prophet was in, upon the consideration of these things, crying out as one even under great pain and torment. Doubling his words for want of vent, thereby expressing the excess of his sorrow, which in words was inexpressible. 

"I am pained at my very heart": In Hebrew, the walls of my heart, or my heartstrings that surrounded and encompassed my heart, are ready to break. He may possibly allude to their encompassing the walls of Jerusalem. Or the proper meaning is, my heart is ready to break, makes a noise, is disturbed within me, I can have no rest nor quiet within.

Next, "Because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet": i.e., I have heard in the spirit of prophecy. It is as certain as if I now heard the trumpet sounding, and “the alarm of war” beating up or coming. This is a cry of the fearful. If this is Jeremiah speaking, it is because the pains of his people are his pains. The trumpet has blown, and it is time for war.

And, Verse 20:

Jeremiah 4:20 "Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment."

Or, "breach upon breach." As soon as one affliction is over, another comes on. And upon the news of one calamity, tidings are brought of another, as in Job's case. It signifies, that distress and troubles would come thick and fast, and that there would be no end of them, until there was an utter destruction, as this phrase signifies, and the following words show. 

"Suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment": Meaning, either the armies of his people, which dwelt in tents, and were destroyed at once, or the cities, towns and habitations of his countrymen, which he compares to tents, as being easily beat down or overthrown. And the prophet seems to intimate that this destruction would reach to Anathoth, where his tent, cottage and curtains were. So sudden destruction sometimes comes, when men are crying “Peace, peace” - "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:3

Even the tent dwellers are taken and spoiled. This is a destruction brought on by God. It is a terrible destruction.

And, Verse 21:

Jeremiah 4:21 "How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?"

The “standard,” as in Jeremiah 4:6 "Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction," is the alarm signal given to the fugitives. The “trumpet” sounds to give the alarm, and quicken their flight to the defensed city. The prophet sees no end to the miseries of the coming war.

"And hear the sound of the trumpet?" Either of the watchmen giving notice of danger and summoning to battle, or of the enemy preparing to attack, 1Corinthian 14:8 "For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?"

The standard bearer is usually the last one to fall, because if one falls another takes it up. Before this battle is over, there will be no standard bearer or trumpet blower.

Next, Jeremiah 4:22 "For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge."

Wise to do evil”: Israelites were wise or clever in doing evil but were dull in knowing to do the good, i.e., God’s Will. Paul, applying the principle but turning it to the positive, wanted the believers at Rome to be wise to do good but unlearned in the skill of doing evil.

"For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil." Roman 16:19

The word "sottish" means silly or fool. These are children who have made foolish decisions. They have chosen dumb idols (Satan, fake news, politicians, Hollywood, etc.) over the true God. They have gone out of their way to sin. These are a people whose understanding is darkened. They had the Light of the world but chose darkness over Light.
 
In Jeremiah 4:23-26: Having warned of the winds of destruction Jeremiah 4:11-13, Jeremiah gives a prediction of the awesome extent of that coming event Jeremiah 4:23-31. That disaster is described in terms of a gigantic cosmic and terrestrial cataclysm. The words without form and void are used of the original conditions at Creation Genesis 1:2. Therefore, some have suggested that Jeremiah is actually describing the early earth in terms of the effects of a primeval judgment, and, accordingly, emphasizes strongly the severity of Judah’s coming judgment for sin.

And, Jeremiah 4:23 "I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light."

Without form”: Jeremiah may be borrowing the language, but the description in its context is not of creation, but of judgment on the land of Israel and its cities. The invader left it desolate of the previous form and void of inhabitants due to slaying and flight.

"I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled." 
Jeremiah 4:25 

And, Jeremiah 4:24 "I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly."

He proceeds in his figurative elegancies. Behold how the mountains of Judea tremble! a like expression. As if the very senseless creatures were astonished at the greatness of God’s anger, and he mentions these as being the most stable part of the earth, yet shake before him.

"All the hills moved lightly": As easily as if they were some very light matter, or as dust or feathers in a whirlwind. Or these may be said to tremble and move by reason of the multitudes of trampling and prancing horses and chariots furiously passing over them.

Jeremiah 4:25 "I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled."

No people dwelling in it. The land was without inhabitants, they were either killed with the sword, or taken and carried captive into Babylon, or fled into Egypt and other countries.

"And all the birds of the heavens were fled": At the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war, at the blackness of the heavens, filled with smoke, at the barrenness of the earth, there being no seed sown. And the earth, as at the first creation, having no herb, nor trees bearing fruit, and so no food for birds, and, therefore, they went elsewhere, both wild and tame.

There had been a habitation, but there had been a total destruction of that habitation. Who they were, and why they were destroyed, is none of our business. If God had wanted us to know, He would have told us.

Jeremiah 4:26 "I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger."

Jeremiah often uses the “wilderness” to represent God’s judgment. This speaks of total desolation brought on by God. The place that had brought forth fruit is now a wilderness. We see the reason is the anger of the LORD.
 
Verses 27-29: The Lord added a note of hope in the phrase “yet will I not make a full end.” He had “purposed” both judgment and the remnant who would survive to carry on His plan for His people.

Jeremiah 4:27 "For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end."

What follows is an explanation and confirmation of the above vision the prophet had.

"The whole land shall be desolate": As he had seen. It should not be manured, ploughed and sown, or bring forth fruit; and should be without inhabitants, at least have very few.

"Yet I will not make a full end": There should be some inhabitants, who, with those that should hereafter return from captivity, would repopulate it, rebuild the temple, and restore it to its pristine form and order. Both as to things natural, civil and ecclesiastical. But though a full end of them, as a church and people, was not to be made now by the Chaldeans. Yet, it would be, as it has been done by the Romans, in the times of Vespasian and Hadrian (in A.D. 70) when Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jews were scattered.

This earth that was null and void shall live again. God will apply the Light of the world, and it will live. It is the Light that brings life.

Jeremiah 4:28 "For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it."

That is, for the full end that will be made hereafter, though not now. The earth may be said to mourn when the inhabitants of it do. Or when it is destroyed, and is become desolate, when it is uncultivated and uninhabited.

"And the heavens above be black": With thick clouds, and storms and tempests; in allusion to mourners, that are clothed with black. These figures, of the earth's mourning, and the heavens being clothed in black, denote the horribleness of that dispensation, when there would be an utter destruction of the Jewish nation, church and civil government, of which Daniel prophesies. Daniel 9:27 

"Because I have spoken it": In my word. In the Scriptures of the Old Testament, by Moses and the prophets.

"I have purposed it": Or I have thought of it, in my counsel. It was a thing deliberately devised and determined, and therefore can never be frustrated or made void.

"And will not repent": Will not turn away from it, or change, what was purposed and predicted.

"Neither will I turn back from it": Revoke or retract it; it shall surely come to pass. The Jews, upon their return from the Babylonian captivity, and afterwards, might flatter themselves that a full end would not be made of them, because it was not then done. And therefore, these several strong expressions are used, to confirm and assure them of it: for the word of God cannot fail, his counsel shall stand. He is not a man, that he should lie or repent; he will do all his pleasure.

This is a time of no Light. The blackness symbolizes mourning. God is Truth, when He speaks, it happens.

And onto Jeremiah 4:29 "The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein."

The inhabitants of all ranks and qualities shall seek to escape the fury of this Chaldean army.

"They shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks": Such a consternation there shall be upon them that they shall run into every hole to hide themselves. The Hebrew is abim, the clouds, possibly alluding to dark places on the tops of hills. Reaching as it were to the clouds, or among the cloudy shades of trees and groves that usually grew there. The LXX render it caves, and so the rocks for shelter, or the clefts, caves, and hiding-places in the rocks.

"Every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein": There shall be an utter desolation, their cities quite forsaken, not any to inhabit them.

This is a terrible time of fear. The fear is so great that they flee from the onslaught, and run to the caves for help. No one is left in the cities.
 
Verses 30-31: Jeremiah returns to the personification of Judah and Jerusalem as a “woman,” first as a prostitute, and then as a woman enduring labor pangs alone, and deserted by all.

Jeremiah 4:30 "And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothe thyself with crimson, though thou deck thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rents thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life."

Or, "O thou spoiled", wasted, and undone creature, how wilt thou help thyself? By what means do you think you can be delivered? It suggests that her ruin was inevitable; that she could not be recovered from it by herself, or any other.

"Though thou clothest thyself with crimson": And so look like some rich and noble person; hoping thereby to find mercy, and to have quarter given and kindness shown.

"Though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold": As a person of high and princely dignity. Or rather all this is to be understood of the manner of harlots, who dress rich and grand, in order to allure men; since it follows:

"Though thou rentest thy face with painting": Or, eyes; which painting dilates as Jezebel did. See, 2 Kings 9:30 

"In vain shalt thou make thyself fair": So as to be loved and admired: far from it.

"Thy lovers will despise thee": As an old harlot is despised by her former gallants, notwithstanding all her dressing and painting. Yea, their love is often turned into hatred and abhorrence, as would be the case here.

"They will seek thy life": To take it away. So far would there be from being any ground of expectations of help and deliverance from them.

All of the beautiful clothing and jewelry will not make them beautiful to God. We see that the ones they have thought of as lovers, will be of no help at all. This adulterous people who were the wife of God, are now abandoned.

And, finally, Jeremiah 4:31 "For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that brings forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewails herself, that spreads her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers."

So, the distress of the Jews, at the time of their destruction, is compared to the sorrows of a woman in travail. And a word, that signifies that is used to express it. See, Matthew 24:8

"And the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child": Whose time is more difficult, her pains sharper, her anguish greater, and having less experience, the more impatient.

"The voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewails herself": Her unhappy condition, and miserable circumstances.

"That spreads her hands": As persons in distress do, and particularly women in travail.

Saying: "Woe is me now, for my soul is wearied because of murderers": These abounded under the second temple, and was the reason, the Jews say, of the Sanhedrim removing from their usual place in the temple. And why they ceased from the beheading of the red heifer.

This appears to be speaking of the physical house of Israel, who is destroyed. The first child is generally speaking of physical Israel. Zion can be the church or Jerusalem. She is crying because of the murderous destruction of her children. The woe is for the loss.

So, in conclusion, and to bring together my message that "The Angels are Here," let us read Psalm 34:1-22:

But, first, Psalm 34:7, "The angel of the Lord encamps round about them that fear him, and delivers them." And, Ecclesiastes 12:13, "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."

Now, Psalm 34:1-22

1 "I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encamps round about them that fear him, and delivers them.

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusts in him.

O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12 What man is he that desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good?

13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.

18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

20 He keeps all his bones: not one of them is broken.

21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

22 The LORD redeems the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate."

As we can see, God keeps pushing me to spread the word: He will not overlook sin!

​"
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

So, while He wants us to know that His judgment is coming, His goal or plan is always to save as many of His children as possible. And, He has sent His angels, and they are here now to protect His children, the ones who fear Him, and deliver them from evil and from God's fury at those who refuse His Son, Jesus Christ, and His Word.

Psalm 34:7, "The angel of the Lord encamps round about them that fear him, and delivers them."

Do you fear God? You should! He commands it!


Ecclesiastes 12:13, "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."

Repent, turn away from sin, turn back to God and be healed. Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

<![CDATA[BREASTPLATE OF JUDGMENT]]>Sat, 06 Feb 2021 15:10:22 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/breastplate-of-judgment


In follow-up to my blog yesterday titled, "BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS," God stressed or emphasized to me this morning, JUDGMENT! He put Scripture on my heart this morning, but, first, let's revisit the Breastplate of Righteousness from yesterday, or the Breastplate of Judgment. 

Following is a quote from www.biblestudytools.com, titled "BREASTPLATE OF THE HIGH PRIEST" or BREASTPLATE OF JUDGMENT:

"The Hebrew word choshen, rendered in the King James Version "breastplate," means really a "pouch" or "bag." The references to it are found exclusively in the Priestly Code Exodus 25:7; 28; 29:5; 35:9,27Leviticus 8:8. The descriptions of its composition and particularly the directions with regard to wearing it are exceedingly obscure. According to Ezra 2:63 and Nehemiah 7:65 the Urim and Thummim, which were called in the priestly pouch, were lost during the Babylonian exile. The actual pouch was a "span in length and a span in breadth," i.e. about 9 inch square. It was made, like the ephod, of "gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen" Exodus 28:15. In it were twelve precious stones, in rows of four, representing the twelve tribes of Israel. Apparently the pouch had two rings (perhaps four) through which passed two gold chains by which it was fastened to the ephod supplied for the purpose with ouches or clasps. The pouch was worn by the high priest over his heart when he entered the "holy place" "for a memorial before Yahweh." The presence of the high priest, the representative of the people, with the names of the separate tribes on his person, brought each tribe before the notice of Yahweh and thereby directed His attention to them. The full designation was choshen mishpaT, "pouch of judgment" or "decision." It was the distinctive symbol of the priest in his capacity as the giver of oracles. As already suggested the priestly pouch contained the Urim and Thummim which were probably precious stones used as lots in giving decisions.

In all probability the restored text of 1 Samuel 14:41 preserves the true custom. On one side stood Saul and Jonathan, and the people on the other side. If the result was Urim, Saul and Jonathan would be the guilty parties. If the result was Thummim, the guilt would fasten on the people." - T. Lewis

THIS is pretty powerful! By atonement and holy rituals decreed by God, the High Priest [Aaron] is bringing all of the sins of man before God for cleansing and mercy.

Judgment is coming, and God will not overlook sin. The Bible tells us, "It is a terrible thing to face punishment from the living God." Hebrews 10:31

Hebrews 10:26-31 ERV

26 "If we decide to continue sinning after we have learned the truth, then there is no other sacrifice that will take away sins.

27 If we continue sinning, all that is left for us is a fearful time of waiting for the judgment and the angry fire that will destroy those who live against God.

28 Whoever refused to obey the Law of Moses was found guilty from the testimony given by two or three witnesses. Such people were not forgiven. They were killed.

29 So think how much more punishment people deserve who show their hate for the Son of God—people who show they have no respect for the blood sacrifice that began the new agreement and once made them holy or who insult the Spirit of God’s grace.

30 We know that God said, 'I will punish people for the wrongs they do; I will repay them.' And he also said, 'The Lord will judge his people.'

31 It is a terrible thing to face punishment from the living God."

Hebrews 10:35-39 ERV

35 "So don’t lose the courage that you had in the past. Your courage will be rewarded richly.

36 You must be patient. After you have done what God wants, you will get what he promised you.

37 He says,

'Very soon now, the one who is coming
    will come and will not be late.

38 The person who is right with me
    will live by trusting in me.

But I will not be pleased with the one
    who turns back in fear.'

39 But we are not those who turn back and are lost. No, we are the people who have faith and are saved."

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

“The fear of man brings a snare: but whoso putts his trust in the LORD shall be safe.” Proverbs 29:25

"Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent." Revelation 2:5

I have said before, we have been in a Spiritual War, but, also, that God won, as he always does, when it is His Will, and like the Egyptians at the red sea, the time is at hand for God's judgment upon many people. 

"And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow them as they pursued after you, and how the LORD hath destroyed them unto this day;" Deuteronomy 11:4

JUDGMENT IS NIGH, BUT "THE END IS NOT YET"

"And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet." Matthew 24:6

WAKE UP! WAKE UP! WAKE UP!

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12

8 “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spiritof his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 

​And, Revelation 3:3

"Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you."

TURN AWAY FROM SIN, TURN TO GOD, AND BE HEALED! 

HALLELUJAH! PRAISE GOD! AMEN!

<![CDATA[BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS]]>Thu, 04 Feb 2021 13:13:26 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/breastplate-of-righteousness"BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)


God gave me two more "snapshots" last night: the Breastplate of Judgment (see pic above), and a single image of a big, bold lightning bolt. I should start out by saying that in the day before this, I prayed for God to give me understanding of His timeline for the events He has put on my heart in recent weeks (see my other  blogs: Victory is Ours Saith the Lord; IT is Happening; God Put Me in Hell, and others).

So, let's break down last night's snapshots. What is the Breastplate of Judgment?

"And Aaron [the High Priest] shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goes in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the Lord continually." Exodus 28:29 

The twelve gems on the breastplate were engraved with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel, one name onto each stone, according to God's specific instructions in the Bible.

"And the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes." Exodus 39:14

The High Priest (Aaron) only wore these sacred holy garments in the Holy of Holies in the Temple, where was also kept God's ark of the covenant, with the mercy seat. Common man was not allowed into the Holy of Holies. God gave specific instructions about the holy garments, and the temple rituals, in Exodus. Aaron, the High Priest, would come in the temple, into the Holy of Holies​,  before the LORD, the ark of the covenant, the mercy seat, wearing the breastplate, and other garments, as instructed by God. 

We can see from Exodus 28:29 (above) that the LORD specifically instructed that "Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart . . ." We know from Scripture that God put much emphasis on our hearts,

"I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings." Jeremiah 17:10

"A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh." Ezekiel 36:26

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12  God's Word is a "discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Wow!

"Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God." Matthew 5:8

The Breastplate of Judgment, which was to be worn over the heart, with the twelve tribes of Israel, engraved one on each gem, represented all of the sins of man, God's chosen people, the twelve tribes of Israel. By atonement and holy rituals decreed by God, Aaron is bringing all of the sins of man before God for cleansing and mercy.

As the High Priests of the Old Testament wore the Breastplate of Judgment in the Holy of Holies, for atonement, forgiveness and mercy from God for our sins, now, by the New Testament, the new covenant from God, through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, His  only begotten son, God forgives our sins, and gives US the armor to wear, instead of the High Priests, the full armor of God, including a Breastplate of Righteousness, for protection from the "wiles of the devil." Righteousness definition: "Morally upright, without guilt or sin." "Without guilt or sin," because we are made whole and perfect through Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 6:11-17 (The Whole Armor of God)

11 "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:"

So, now, moving onto the lightning snapshot God gave me last night, and then we will tie the two together. What does the Bible say about God and lightning? 

Zechariah 9:8-9,14-17

8 "I will protect my country. I will not let enemy armies pass through it. I will not let them hurt my people anymore. With my own eyes I have seen how much my people have suffered.

People of Zion, rejoice! People of Jerusalem, shout with joy! Look, your king is coming to you! He is the good king who won the victory, but he is humble. He is riding on a donkey, on a young donkey born from a work animal.

14 The Lord will appear to them, and he will shoot his arrows like lightning. The Lord God will blow the trumpet, and the army will rush forward like a desert dust storm.

15 The Lord All-Powerful will protect them. The soldiers will use rocks and slings to defeat the enemy. They will spill the blood of their enemies. It will flow like wine. It will be like the blood that is thrown on the corners of the altar!

16 At that time the Lord their God will save his people like a shepherd saves his sheep. They will be very precious to him. They will be like sparkling jewels in his land.

17 Everything will be good and beautiful! There will be a wonderful crop, but it will not be just the food and wine. It will be all the young men and women!"

AND JUST TO REPEAT THAT: (REPEAT  numbers 14 through 17) 

HALLELUJAH! PRAISE GOD! AMEN!

Now, we know that God controls the weather, and that He likes to use it to prove indisputably that He is the "Great, I AM." After all, He makes it clear to Job that the very lightning we see in the sky reports to Him, God. "Can thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?" Job 38:35 

God has been putting on my heart in recent weeks (see my previous blogs) that, The Victory is Already Won Saith the Lord, the Time for Justice is at Hand, and IT is Happening. Although it may feel like nothing is happening at this moment, I believe GOD showed me, in the two snapshots, the Breastplate of Judgment, and the lightning bolt, that we must always remember to, now more than ever,

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" 1 Peter 5:8 

OR,

"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ" 2 Corinthians 11:3

FOR,

"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. . ." 1 John 3:8

So, we must "Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." (see Ephesians 6:11-17​), and,

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalm 27:14

There will be much weeping and gnashing of teeth for people who refused the Good News of God.

"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel [good news] of God?" 1 Peter 4:17

But, for God's children, we will not fear the evildoers,

Psalm 37:1-6

1 "Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."

And, as God's children,

7 "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish."
Psalm 112:7-10

And, if we remain steadfast in our faith until God's event is finished, we shall reap from our fruits an hundredfold, sixty or thirty.

“But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” Matthew 13:23

Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

"O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever." Psalm 118:29

(or read only below)

 

Last night, in the wee hours, God had other plans for me than sleep. So, I lie in bed and prayed fervently, giving THANKS, PRAISE and GLORY to GOD, most High, and Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

As I dozed off, God gave me another snapshot vision 
of a great army.  (see my Blog dated 1/25/21, titled "Victory is Ours Saith The Lord," for my last snaphot vision). There was no color in the vision, so I do not know on whose side the army was. The "snapshot" is me snapping out of sleep, and the vision disappearing.

So, still in the wee hours of the morning, I began to pray fervently, giving THANKS, PRAISE and GLORY to GOD, our heavenly Father. And, as I dozed off, the words "Insurrection Act" came to me, and I snapped awake once more. You can read about the "Insurrection Act of 1807" at history.com. Or, there is a link to the article on www.FaithfulLamb.com, in this blog.

https://www.history.com/news/insurrection-act-thomas-jefferson-aaron-burr

Together with my blog dated 1/14/21, titled "God Put Me in Hell," and my blog dated 1/27/21, titled "IT is Happening,"  I believe GOD has shown me that things are happening right now, which we cannot see, which we are not meant to see, until the perfect time, GOD's time! Everything that is happening now in America is an elaborate show playing out. GOD is the CREATOR, director and hero, and all who are faithful until the end, the final scene, are going to reap an enormous harvest from the Holy Spirit in gifts, talents, wonders and signs, as well good health, prosperity and abundance. 

"And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred." Mark 4:20

Glory to GOD in the highest. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9

Praise and thanksgiving continually. "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" Hebrews 4:16

But, it cannot be said enough, GOD will NOT overlook sin!

“Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.” Ezekiel 7:8  

He has heard the cries and suffering of BILLIONS worldwide. And He has not, and will not, forsake us!

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
Hebrews 13:5


I realize a lot of my writing has been along the same line, the "Lukewarm CHRISTian," but these are the things that GOD has put on my heart, and they must be spoken, because the time is at hand to choose sides, God or Satan, good or evil.

“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” James 2:19

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.” Romans 13:12

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

We need you today and everyday. We need Your healing, Your grace and Your glory. Restore the hope and faith of Your children on this planet.

We need you today and everyday.

<![CDATA[IT IS HAPPENING]]>Wed, 27 Jan 2021 12:55:16 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/it-is-happening"IT IS HAPPENING!" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)




God put Scripture heavy on my heart this morning, so today's Blog will be Scripture only, as no one could say it more eloquently or accurately:

The Lord put on my heart this morning that, "IT is happening!" What is "IT"? God's Will! God's Plan! God's timeline in this event of His Plan.

Isaiah 42:16 - "And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them."

Psalm 116:5 - “Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.”


Do not stop praying. As a matter of fact, Pray MORE!

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 - "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;). Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;"

Psalm 34:17 - "The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles."

1 Timothy 2:1-4


1 "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth."

And, finally, if you need a little help praying, Jesus made it really easy:

Matthew 6:9-13


9 "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."

<![CDATA[VICTORY IS OURS SAITH THE LORD]]>Mon, 25 Jan 2021 14:17:26 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/victory-is-ours-saith-the-lord"VICTORY IS OURS SAITH THE LORD" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)



In November or December 2020, sometime after the Presidential Election, God made it clear to me:

Trump won!

Roe v. Wade will be overturned!

Abortion will be abolished!


VICTORY is ours saith the LORD. The VICTORY has already been WON! We have been seeing it unfold, even though it is hidden in darkness, because that is where evil lives and thrives. "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. [exposed]"  John 3:19-20
 
This morning, God gave me ... I'll call it a snapshot of what is coming. The masses of people crying out LIARS LIARS LIARS ... at the fake news. That was it, and then it left, just like a snapshot. Refer to my Blog dated January 14, 2021, titled "God Put Me in Hell," for my revelation about Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter. These things are coming. This EVIL and phony movie in Washington DC will not stand. God cannot be cheated out of what is His. "But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God." Acts 5:39

As I said in one of my previous Blogs, God is drawing a line in stone, not sand, between good and evil, and He is almost finished. There is still time to choose God's side of the line, but I believe only days, not weeks or years. I believe after this event in God's timeline is complete, the path to Eternal Life will be much more crooked and narrow and difficult to follow, if not impossible. "For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed. . ." Matthew 13:15 

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” Romans 1:28

We must pray fervently for the World, for America, for our friends and families, but especially for our "Christian" brethren, who have lost their way to the Truth, teaching and meaning of God's Word:

Our Prayer for You Today

Oh, Heavenly Father, living God, most gracious, just and merciful, we pray that You continue to shine Your Light on the heavens and the earth, exposing all darkness, from east to west and north to south. Shine Your Light into the hearts of Your children, waking them out of their slumber in Jesus.

Father, I thank you for waking me up, and for not giving up on me. You are a patient and loving Father, and we know that you want all of your sheep to find the way back to Your Flock. We pray for Your Great Awakening of the World, and the Great Harvest promised by You through Your Word and Prophets, thirty-, sixty- or an hundredfold. Hallelujah! 

Father, we pray that Your children everywhere find you, come back to you, and are healed, before the fury of your recompense on the World.

Father, we know we have broken your laws and our sins have separated us from you. We are truly sorry, and now we want to turn away from our past sinful life toward you.

Please forgive us, and help us avoid sinning again. We believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died for our sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears our prayers. We invite Jesus to become the Lord of our lives, to rule and reign in our hearts, from this day forward.

Please send your Holy Spirit to help us obey You, and to do Your Will for the rest of our lives.

We pray for all of these things in Jesus' name. Praise God! Amen.

"Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." Psalm 27:12-14

2020 was a trying year for many people. We send prayers for God's loving mercy and grace and healing for everyone affected by the virus, or by the lockdowns, in general, and for a healthy, prosperous and abundant 2021. Hallelujah! Amen.

Now, while 2020 was trying for many people, 2021 will be a revelation, A Great Awakening, for many CHRISTians, who strive and yearn to follow and love the living God, with all of their heart and all of their mind and all of their soul, as Jesus instructed in
Matthew 22:37"Jesus said unto him, 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.'"

So, let me start by stating that I stand with God first, family second and country third. God has much to say, however, through His Word and His Prophets, about the 2020 Presidential Election. I cannot stress enough that God will not overlook sin. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

It is impossible to discuss CHRISTians' upcoming role in the Great Awakening without addressing the literal elephants and donkeys in the room. I know this may offend some people, because the Truth often does. As CHRISTians, when do we become complicit in others' sins? CHRISTians must start telling the Truth, the Hard Truths, God's Truth. As I have said before, God has made it clear to me that the time for the "Lukewarm CHRISTian" has passed. See my Blog titled, "Are You A Lukewarm Christian"?

No pun intended against the elephants or the donkeys, but, as a LAMB OF GOD, I must call out the proverbial elephant in the room: 
It is alarming to me the number of "Christians" who supported, and then cheered and celebrated a fake win, from a party that stands for most of the things that are an abomination unto the Lord.

16 "These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." 
Proverbs 6:16-19

Think about that. Abominations unto the Lord. This should not be taken lightly. "He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD." Proverbs 17:15

And our God, and we, as faithful Lambs of God, know that Satan is the great deceiver: "And cast him [Satan] into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more. . ." Revelations 20:3

Man's laws are not God's laws, and while the Bible tells us in Romans 13:1 that we are to obey our leaders, because they are ordained by God, we are well-served,  in our Godly and righteous endeavors, to also remember Ecclesiastes 12:13, "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."

In addition, as Peter and the other apostles said to the Sadducees, who were filled with indignation, because the apostles were doing many signs and wonders among the people, after being expressly instructed not to, and who said to Peter and the other apostles, did not we command you that you should not teach in this name? Acts 5

"
Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men." Acts 5:29

If the ordained leaders, who all have free will, choose to pass laws that are against God's laws, then we "ought to obey God rather than men." Amen.

​This puts CHRISTians in a unique, and perhaps awkward, position.


Why is this a unique position for CHRISTians? Because there are a multitude of our fellow "Christian" brethren, and others, who are in desperate need of a refreshening or awakening of the Spirit. "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh." Galatians 5:16  And, what does a CHRISTian Love more than bringing souls back to the living God? There isn't a lot! Hallelujah! Praise Yahweh!

Why is this an "awkward" position for CHRISTians? B
ecause, as Apostle Paul said to the Ephesians: "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [expose] them." Ephesians 5:11 

And, because speaking the hard truths, God's hard truths, can be a daunting task. CHRISTians have been asleep, and have become complacent in God's Word, striving more for a status quo, "political correctness," than living in God's Word. God will not overlook sin: “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.” Acts 17:30

CHRISTians can no longer be complacent, nor complicit, in the lukewarmness of other 
"Christians": “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16  It is time to proclaim God's Truth from the housetops: "Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops." Luke 12:3

The aftermath of the 2020 Presidential Election has produced some "Christians" who are celebrating and cheering victory, albeit an alleged false victory. "But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God." Acts 5:39

The aftermath has also produced "Christians," who are in fear, who gave up, threw in the towel and surrendered. The fake news, social media censorship, "Trump versus The World," has beat them down.

And, finally, the aftermath of the 2020 Presidential Election has also produced CHRISTians who are steadfast in their faith and belief in God's Words. 
“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.” Proverbs 29:25

We are coming into a time of Spiritual harvest, where our faith and good works will be rewarded thirty-, sixty- or an hundredfold. "And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred." Mark 4:20

God is exposing the darkness and shining His Light into the hearts of many who were asleep in Jesus. "Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them." Ephesians 5:11

And, Psalm 27:1, "A Psalm of David. . ." reminds us that ". . . The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is  the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" Hallelujah!

And, finally:


"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:28-29

Our Prayer for You Today​: 

Heavenly Father, the living God,

You have created me with the capacity for deep affections — to love, to loathe, to desire, to delight, to excite, to grieve, to laugh, to enjoy, to fear, to be depressed, to be thankful. And you made me this way that I may glorify you.

But I confess that my affections for you are often lukewarm while my selfish interests are on fire, and I know that my sinful flesh is most offensive to you. O gracious Father, thank you that your Son’s great sacrifice is so great and so sufficient that it pays even for these gross sins.

I repent of being lazy in my zeal to you, to your son, and to your precious word! No more, Father! Make me boil in spirit as I serve you Romans 12:11! To be moved by your glorious gospel and precious promises. 2 Peter 1:4 

Today, I take to heart your Son’s warning: “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16.

Merciful Father, make me hot! Whatever it takes, whatever it costs me, give me the Spirit-salve for my eyes Revelation 3:18, so that I may see what is real, believe what is true, treasure what is valuable and forsake what is worthless.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Savior and King. Amen!

<![CDATA[JESUS IS ANGERED . . .]]>Sat, 23 Jan 2021 18:02:51 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/jesus-is-angered"JESUS IS ANGERED" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)



"This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me." Matthew 15:8

This morning, God put on my heart, Jesus' anger and grievances at the iniquities of the Pharisees and scribes, who honored Him with their lips, but dishonored Him with their service/works. And, once again, this is along the same line as God's messages to me this year regarding the "Lukewarm CHRISTian." See my previous Blogs.

Jesus preached His grievances against the scribes and Pharisees often:

Matthew 23:13-15

13 "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves."

And, in Mark 3:4-5, we learn that Jesus became angered at the Pharisees, because they questioned that He was healing a man on the Sabbath day:


4 "And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other."


What does this mean for our Life today, January 23, 2021? Well, if you have read my previous Blogs, you know it means a lot! God will not overlook sin! "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

As CHRISTians, we can no longer turn a blind eye to the iniquities of non-CHRISTians, nor Lukewarm CHRISTians. Jesus said, "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." Matthew 15:14

We know that Jesus says in Matthew 15:1-2: "Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."

But, did you also know that Jesus says in John 7:24: "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment"? Why would Jesus tell us to "judge righteous judgement"?

Let us look at Luke 5:31-32 for our answer: "
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

We can see from this Scripture that one reason CHRISTians must "judge righteous judgment" is like a physician who heals people of their sickness, but must first test them to learn their ailment. We, as God's children, are instructed to use God's Word and Truth, and "judge righteous judgment," to test people and learn of their sins, so that we may heal the hearts of the unrighteous, and, by the same token, so  that we do not unawares reap the unrighteousness of the unrighteous.

"
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." Colossians 2:8

So, what we learn is that Jesus is very clear in His instruction to "judge righteous judgment," so we are able to follow God, and not the evils of the world. And, as Paul says in 2 Corinthians:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:14

It makes sense, then, that our fellowship with unrighteousness should be only with sinners, who are willing to learn God's Word and Truth, and how it impacts their Life and choices in Life, and are also willing to earnestly consider their sins, and necessary repentance (turning away from ... sin). "Change your hearts! And show by the way you live that you have changed." Matthew 3:8  In other words, repent.

And Jesus also said in Luke 13:5: "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." 

Once someone learns God's Truth, and still chooses to continue their sinful behavior, or, worse, encourages us to participate in their evil deeds, then we must consider previous Scripture herein, which instructs us not to associate with unrighteousness. See 2 Corinthians 6:14 above.  We can see that this requires us to always know the character of people with whom we associate, or to "judge righteous judgment."


"For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins," Hebrews 10:26

Therefore, Oh, Heavenly Father, the living God:

9 "Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:

10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the Lord." Psalm 26:9-12


Our Prayer for You Today:


"Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve . . .” Matthew 20:28 

Almighty Father, we thank you for your great salvation plan for mankind and your beloved Son, Lord Jesus Christ, who came into this world as a living sacrifice. In all His time on earth, He loved and served the world.

We pray, Father, that we become shining examples of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that we faithfully and humbly love and serve all of those around us, and especially those who are most needy.

Lord Jesus Christ, we praise you and we glorify you. We give you thanks for your great Love, and your sacrifice for our sins. We praise you, for you came to fulfill the Father’s Will, to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

We pray and pledge that we will walk with your Love always, and that we may be of service to the masses in our short time here, as is the Father's Will, and, to Fear Him and obey His commandments. Ecclesiastes 12:13

Lord Jesus, may your life of love and service be our guide to love and serve the underprivileged, the abandoned and the neediest amongst us.

Help us, Lord, to love beyond measure, without expectations, limitations or conditions, everyone, but especially those who need our love the most.

Hallelujah! Praise God, the Most High!

We ask for all of these things in Jesus' sweet name. Amen!

<![CDATA[2021GOD Challenge!]]>Fri, 22 Jan 2021 15:57:27 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/2021god-challenge"2021GOD CHALLENGE" AUDIO BLOG 
(or read only below)


As I write these blogs, which represent revelations God has given me over the past year, I realize God's theme throughout: the "Lukewarm CHRISTian." 

And, along those lines, at the end of December, God put on my heart that 2021 was, indeed, not just another year, which happens to be the title of my last blog, but 2021 was the year that America and the World began to wake up and realize that there is only ONE GOD, who can save us, even with Eternal Life.  So, came the God-inspired 2021GOD Challenge! How to Learn God's Plan for Your Life, in three easy steps. 

How To: (Must be done every day, to achieve and maintain results!)

1. Live Your Life Now by the Standards of God's Kingdom, and Follow God's Laws and Commandments:

Accept with all your heart and all your mind and all your soul that Jesus Christ is God's only begotten son, who died on the cross, and rose again, for forgiveness of your sins.


Scripture tells us about Jesus: 

​"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him." 1 Thessalonians 4:14

And Scripture tells us about God's Laws and Commandments:

Exodus 20:2-17

2 "I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal.

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's."

In addition to the Ten Commandments, we have the fruit of the Spirit as a guide for Godly Living:


Galatians 5:22-23

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

And, finally, Jesus had two of His own Commandments:


Matthew 22:36-40


36 "Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."



​2. Pray to God frequently throughout the day, ask for discernment (understanding) of His Word and His Plan for your Life. Prayers do not have to be elaborate. God knows our hearts:

"I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings." Jeremiah 17:10

And, God knows what we need before we know we need it:

"Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." Matthew 6:8

If you are short on words, simply pray the Lord's Prayer, as given to us by Jesus:

Matthew 6:9-13


9 "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."


3. Read the Bible (at least three chapters per day). You will get as much from God as you give Him, so the more the better. What version you read is not as important as just reading it. Switch between your preferred version, like King James Bible, and an easy-to-read version, or a study Bible, to help with difficult passages.

That is it! It is THAT easy. 

God's gifts of the Spirit come in differing forms: dreams, visions, knowledge, talents, prophesying, healing, and more:

1 Corinthians 12:4-11

4 "Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will."

As I have repeated, and will probably repeat again, because God has made it clear to me, we are coming into a Spiritual Revival / Spiritual Revolution. No one will be able to deny GOD's Work.

Find out if the Holy Spirit has gifts for you, and or God's Plan for your Life. Do not miss out! What do you have to lose?


Our Prayer for You Today:

Father, thank You for Your Word which is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path and thank You Father, for the Lord Jesus Christ, the living Word made flesh, Who has life in Himself and is the light of the world in Whom is no darkness at all.

Lord, more than anything else, I desire to bathe in that light of the Lord Jesus so that the light of His love and grace may shine through me to others, especially at those times when the circumstances of life seem to be particularly gloomy and dark.

Father, You have called us to be lights in the world, reflecting the glory and light of Christ and I pray that I may become His reflection, so that men may see my good works and glorify my Father in heaven.

Lord, I know that this requires me to decrease to nothing so that He may increase in everything and become all in all. Father, I pray that whatever it takes, that You would purge out anything that diminishes the light and love of Christ in me, so that Jesus is lifted up high in my heart and life, to your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,

Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

<![CDATA[2021 - Not Just Another Year]]>Thu, 21 Jan 2021 19:16:29 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/2021-not-a-just-another-year"2021 - NOT JUST ANOTHER YEAR" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)



Jesus said, “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.” Luke 12:2

Many months ago, God made it clear to me that we were in a Spiritual War. A Spiritual War is not a war in the physical realm, but in the supernatural realm. 

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12

At the end of December 2021, I began to feel that God had won the Spiritual War! He put a spirit of celebration in me. And then he showed me that 2021 would be the beginning of something great! A Spiritual Revival. Spiritual Revolution. And I saw a vision of a glorious celebration in His name and praise and glory, and people, the least of these, were being given gifts and talents from the Holy Spirit, and there was indeed a Spiritual Revival, a Spiritual Revolution, with all manner of healing and other gifts. Hallelujah! Praise God!

We see CHRISTians losing hope in God, because a man seemingly failed us. But God will never fail us. And God is not slow. He has not forsaken us. He is just and merciful, however, and He does not want anyone to perish, but all to come to repentance.

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

But, 2021 will not be just another year. It is time for ALL CHRISTians to gird up our loins (like Job), because God is calling us to be the warriors and soldiers in His Spiritual Revolution.

"Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me."  Job 38:3

This Word is in line with my blog titled, "Are You a Lukewarm CHRISTian"? God showed me that 2021 is the time for CHRISTians to start speaking the hard truths, such as, There is only ONE GOD, the living God, the Giver of Eternal Life. Jesus said, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16

Our Prayer for You Today:


My lukewarmness distresses me and dishonors You.

I have become spiritually complacent.

Warm my heart by showing me again the depth of Your love that sent Jesus to live and die for me.

Grant me the gift of repentance and pour Your love into my heart by Your Holy Spirit.

Grant me a thirst to know You better as well as a heart full of spiritual fervor for You.

Enflame my heart with the sure and certain hope of my future sitting with You on Your throne in heaven.

Prepare me for all that lies ahead in my earthly pilgrimage…the smiles of prosperity as well as the frowns of adversity, the days of spiritual conquest and victory, as well as the days of defeat.

Hallelujah! Praise God, the Most High! Amen!

<![CDATA[GOD versus THE WORLD]]>Wed, 20 Jan 2021 14:43:44 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/god-versus-the-worldAUDIO BLOG "GOD versus THE WORLD"
(or just read below)

PRESIDENT TRUMP SPEAKS AT SENDOFF CEREMONY
January 20, 2021



​"Give glory to the Lord your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness." Jeremiah 13:16


This morning, as I watched President Trump speak at his "sendoff ceremony" (see video above), I realized something:  What God's prophets had meant in recent months, when they said that God wanted all eyes on Him, all thoughts on Him, all hope and faith on Him, all GLORY to Him.

Now, it seems, the one man, President Trump, who many CHRISTians were still clinging to for hope, has failed them. What will happen now? Who will lead us out of this darkness, corruption and tyranny?

Over the last several months, I have commented more than once, that it is literally Trump versus the World. And sometimes, as a second thought, I would give God credit, too. Of course, I was wrong. All Glory to God Alway ... But, as I watched President Trump's speech this morning, I began to cry, weep, lament, to our Lord, Christ, and His Father, the living God, for I now understand that it has never been Trump versus the World, but always, GOD versus the World!

THIS is what God wanted us to realize before His Plan could be fulfilled through, and in, us! 

So, as Trump spoke, I was filled with sadness and began to cry for forgiveness and mercy, for myself, but, more importantly, for the World, for God's children, who lost, or are losing, hope in a man, a flesh and blood man, who cannot save us, who could never save us.

Jesus Christ is our Savior, and no one except He can save us!

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins." Matthew 1:21 

Our Prayer for You Today:

Psalm 122:1-9


1 "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good."


HALLELUJAH! Praise God, the Most High! AMEN!

<![CDATA[GIVE ALL PRAISE TO GOD!]]>Tue, 19 Jan 2021 16:44:50 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/give-all-praise-to-godAUDIO BLOG "GIVE ALL PRAISE TO GOD"
(or just read below)




This morning, I woke up with great thanksgiving and praise and glory in my heart to our Heavenly Father YAH.

HE was very excited in me, and was yelling,


GIVE THANKS!

GIVE PRAISE!

GIVE GLORY!


Psalm 24:8-10

8 "Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah."



For our God is righteous and fierce.

"The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works." Psalm 145:17

"Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off." Psalm 88:16


​And I just kept feeling, as I lie there hearing over and over,

GIVE THANKS!

GIVE PRAISE!

GIVE GLORY!


people were kneeling all around, everywhere, up and down the streets, and bowing and cheering and celebrating, and giving

THANKS!

PRAISE! 

and GLORY!


To our Heavenly Father,

The creator of the heavens and the earth,

In whose image and likeness we are ALL created,


And by whom, we were bought with a heavy price, the blood of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, so that we, wretched man, could be made whole in His perfection, and receive the gift of Everlasting Life!

Hallelujah!

God will NOT be mocked, and He WILL receive His due

THANKS!

PRAISE!

and GLORY!
 

"By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name." Hebrews 13:15

"Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD." Psalm 150:6

Remember the story of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, as he cried out to the God of Abraham in 2 Chronicles 20:9, as the Ammonites and Moabites were threatening Jerusalem:

"If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help." 

Jehoshaphat cried further, "O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee." 2 Chronicles 20:12


And what did our God respond?

2 Chronicles 20:15-18

15 "And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.

18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the Lord, worshipping the Lord."

GIVING THANKS!

GIVING PRAISE!

GIVING GLORY!


As in the days of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, God has already fought this battle for us, and we have already seen the proof that he has won.

Do not listen to false prophets: fake news, social media censorship, dishonest leaders (political and church).

Listen to God, and to His Word. His Word is the TRUTH!

Our Prayer for You Today:

Lord, teach me to offer you a heart of thanksgiving and praise in all my daily experiences of life. Teach me to be joyful always, to pray continually and to give thanks in all my circumstances. I accept them as Your will for my life 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.

I long to bring pleasure to Your heart daily. Break the power of the enemy in my life. Defeat Him through my sacrifice of praise. Change my outlook and attitude into one of joyful contentment with my present circumstances. 

Jesus, I want to be like You who obeyed the Father without complaint. You embraced the chains of humanity when You walked this earth. Convict me whenever I complain or compare myself with others.

Give me Your attitude of humility and thankful acceptance. I want to be like the Apostle Paul who learned contentment in every circumstance. I choose to continually offer You a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of lips that give praise to Your name Hebrews 13:15.

I long to bring a smile to Your face. Teach me the power of a thankful heart. I know that Your truth dwells in a thankful heart.

“I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens” Psalm 7:17-18.

Hallelujah! Amen!


Thanks to our GOD!

Praise to our GOD!

Glory to our GOD!

<![CDATA[FORNICATION IS A SIN!]]>Mon, 18 Jan 2021 14:47:50 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/fornication-is-a-sinAUDIO BLOG "FORNICATION IS A SIN"
(or just read below)





Something that has been heavy on my heart in recent days is the lack of concern by CHRISTians, and especially "holy people," regarding fornication also known as premarital sex. Apostle Paul made it clear in 1 Corinthians 6:18 that fornication is a sin:

"Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body."

And, also, again in 1 Corinthians 7:8-9:

"I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn."

Paul preached God's Word to the Romans, about why God sent these things to befall them:

Romans 1:25-29

25 "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,"

As we can see from the new testament Scripture above, fornication is still considered a sin by Jesus. We know fornication, or sex in general, oftentimes leads to pregnancy, unwanted or otherwise, and that sin often leads to other sin.

When a child is conceived to unmarried parents, it is more likely that that child will grow up without discipline from a father figure, and, therefore, be unruly and disobedient.


"He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." Proverbs 13:24

And, since the child was conceived through fornication, which is unGodly, it is likely that he will also grow up without God in his life, which is a travesty, for him and his future generations.


"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

There are many Scriptures that tell us that children are precious to the Lord,

"Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward." Psalm 127:3

But He does not tolerate disobedient children:

"For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death." Matthew 15:4

"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:" Ephesians 2:2

"Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience." Ephesians 5:6

​After having considered God's Word from Jesus and His apostle Paul on the subject of fornication, we come to the crux of the matter: Fornication is a sin, and it often leads to other sin.

God said in Deuteronomy 23:2:

"A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord."

What is a bastard? "A person born to parents not married to each other," through "fornication​."

​Paul further says in 1 Corinithians 7:2:


"Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband."

But do not despair. People are not doomed to be cursed and burn. Our God is just to forgive our sins:

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

Does this mean that we can keep sinning because we are forgiven of everything forever?

The answer is in 
Luke 13:3, where Jesus says, "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." 

What does it mean to repent? Is not repenting the same as asking for forgiveness of sins? No. To repent is to "turn away from" . . . sin. In other words, to sin NO MORE. To live our lives as our forefathers, the apostles, Jesus Christ himself, righteously, with all glory and praise to God, our father.

In contrast, asking God for forgiveness is telling Him that we know we have sinned, and asking for forgiveness for those sins.

Does this mean that we can continue to sin as long as we keep asking Him to forgive our sins? The Scriptures make it clear sin is not forgiven forever. We are expected to repent, to turn away from sin.

"For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins," Hebrews 10:26

And, in 
Matthew 3:8-10, Jesus says:

"Change your hearts! [repent] And show by the way you live that you have changed.

I know what you are thinking. You want to say, ‘but Abraham is our father!’ That means nothing. I tell you, God could make children for Abraham from these rocks.

10 The ax is now ready to cut down the trees. Every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire." Amen.


Our Prayer for You Today:

Psalm 51:1-19


1 "Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar."

Praise God! Amen!

<![CDATA[THE NARROW GATE . . .]]>Sun, 17 Jan 2021 14:20:57 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-narrow-pathAUDIO BLOG "THE NARROW GATE"
(or just read below)




God put some things on my heart this year that I posted on Facebook and/or Twitter, and for which I did not at the time give God appropriate glory and praise and thanksgiving. I am a weak sinner, with tiny Faith, but I pray today for God, in His infinite wisdom and glory and mercy, to give me the confidence to have Faith larger than a mustard seed, Faith that can move mountains!

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20

In this post, I will attempt to cover some of the things that God has shared with me, or put on my heart, in the last year. Praise You, our Lord and Savior Thee, Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!

One of the first things God shared with me last year was that He is separating the wheat from the chaff. The wheat is good for food and healthy for the body, but the chaff that is left on the threshing floor will blow away in the wind, or be burned up in the fire. God has made the events of 2020 clear, for all to see.  The line has been drawn, between wheat and chaff.

"Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." Matthew 3:12


"The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish." Psalm 1:4-6

He made it clear to me that this is a Spiritual War, good versus evil, God versus Satan. A Spiritual War is a war in the supernatural realm, not in the physical realm.

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12

What does that mean for us? As Paul says to followers of Jesus Christ in 2 Corinthians

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

Paul further  says to Christ's followers at Ephesus:

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." Ephesians 6:10-11

We have seen this Spiritual War play out over the last year with churches closed down, but strip clubs open, fake news, social media censorship, an overblown flu with a 98% survival rate, lockdowns, masks, riots guised as "peaceful protests," crippling fear, and so much more.

But, God made it clear to me over the last year that He is shining His Light on America, the World, the unborn babies, the corruption, the evil plans, and He IS exposing the darkness.

He is waking up His children, His warriors, His soldiers. And, as followers of Christ, we feel the awakening, A Great Awakening, and the presence of the Lord in our lands, and we know that His truth and justice will prevail!

A few months ago, God put on my heart that this event in God's Plan is our last chance to choose the narrow path. Meaning, many hearts will be hardened, but many more will awaken and be saved. This event right now is a main reason the path to hell is so wide, and the path to heaven so narrow. This word is in line with His Word in my post yesterday, "Are You a Lukewarm CHRISTian"?

"Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;" Hebrews 3:12-14

Remember, God has only good plans for us, and if we call to Him, He will answer:

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." Jeremiah 29:11 

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3


And along this line, He put on my heart that He has heard our cries, and He is lifting His children up with the right hand of His righteousness, and shielding us with His Glory.

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; 
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.Isaiah 41:10

He has heard the cries and suffering of His children, 80+/- million, the voting majority in America, and many more millions, and billions even, around the world who cried, and are crying, out to Him to help save America from socialism and communism, and to help His unborn children that are being slaughtered by the millions every year worldwide.

"Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood." Psalm 106:37-38

I saw a prophet this week, who said that God said he put a veil over America for the last many decades, because we turned away from Him, removed Him from our schools. The churches turned away from His Word and turned to political correctness. And we began sacrificing our children, as in the days of old.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” Romans 1:28

But the prophet said that God HAS heard the cries of billions worldwide, to save His unborn children, and to save America (and the world) from tyranny and corruption, and that He is lifting the veil off of America and bringing His Truth and His Justice and a Spiritual awakening and revolution, and that no one will be able to deny it was God's work. Hallelujah! 

We should all be on the ground, on bended knee, begging for forgiveness, repenting, and praising our Lord, our Savior Thee. He is showing the world His grace and mercy, before He shows His fury and recompense. I pray everyone finds Him.

Our Prayer for You Today:


Heavenly Father, the living God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua, Marvelous, Counsellor, Prince of Princes, King of Kings. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived. I ask for your forgiveness.

I believe with all my heart and soul that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sins, and rose again, and I am now willing to turn from my sin, to repent.

You said in the Bible, Your Holy Word, that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now, I confess Jesus is my Lord and Savior, without which I am but sinful flesh. With all of my heart, I believe that our Heavenly Father, the living God, raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. 


Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

<![CDATA[Are You A Lukewarm CHRISTian?]]>Sat, 16 Jan 2021 16:34:46 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/are-you-a-lukewarm-christianAUDIO BLOG "Are you a Lukewarm CHRISTian"
(or just read below)




I follow God Almighty, our heavenly Father, and father of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

He told me in the last few months that the time for the "Lukewarm Christian" has passed. He has drawn a line in stone (not sand) with the righteousness of His finger. He has given us an undeniable choice between good and evil, between God and Satan.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

What is a "lukewarm CHRISTian"? Let us say that a lukewarm CHRISTian is someone who believes they can stand in God's righteousness, while living apart from Him.

We should probably start with this Scripture, since it explains the remainder of this post:

"These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." Proverbs 6:16-19

Keeping in mind Proverbs 6:16-19, consider the "Lukewarm CHRISTian" and the 2020 Presidential Election:

1. Vile uttering from one CHRISTian to and about another, spewing hateful rhetoric, with no forethought of family, nor unequivocally, family in CHRIST.

Jesus Christ gave but two Commandments: Love God, and love your neighbor as yourself:

"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:36-40

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" Matthew 5:44

2. Even regarding politics, we can see that God has drawn a clear line, good or evil, God or Satan, with some CHRISTians now standing for the murder of God's children in the womb, up to nine months old, by barbaric and inhumane methods; 

“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”  Psalm 127:3 

He really could not have made it more clear! But He tried: “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” Luke 17:2.

And, finally, which should have been enough by itself, "Thou shalt not kill/murder." Exodus 20:13

3. And woe to them that convince, coerce, or otherwise enable or force others to stand for the same abominations. Woe unto them . . . "Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!" Isaiah 5:23. "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed." Proverbs 13:20See also, Luke 17:2.

4. Woe to those who mock God by cheering and celebrating their lying, cheating and stealing, which are sins and abominations unto the LORD. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Galatians 6:7. "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness." Romans 1:18

5.  We should always remember, God's Plan is never different than ours if we follow God, because God's Plan should always be our plan. We are supposed to follow HIS Will, HIS commandments, not the other way around.

​"Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity." Matthew 23:28

"Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel."  1 Corinthians 9:14. ​

Are you a Lukewarm CHRISTian?

Jesus said, 
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16

Our Prayer Today(courtesy of: 
https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/a-prayer-for-a-lukewarm-heart)

Heavenly Father, the living God,

You have created me with the capacity for deep affections — to love, to loathe, to desire, to delight, to excite, to grieve, to laugh, to enjoy, to fear, to be depressed, to be thankful. And you made me this way that I may glorify you.

But I confess that my affections for you are often lukewarm while my selfish interests are on fire, and I know that my sinful flesh is most offensive to you. O gracious Father, thank you that your Son’s great sacrifice is so great and so sufficient that it pays even for these gross sins.

I repent of being lazy in my zeal to you, to your son, and to your precious word! No more, Father! Make me boil in spirit as I serve you Romans 12:11! To be moved by your glorious gospel and precious promises. 2 Peter 1:4 

Today, I take to heart your Son’s warning: “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16.

Merciful Father, make me hot! Whatever it takes, whatever it costs me, give me the Spirit-salve for my eyes Revelation 3:18, so that I may see what is real, believe what is true, treasure what is valuable and forsake what is worthless.


In the name of Jesus Christ, Savior and King. Amen!


Enjoy God's show. There's still time to choose God's side of the line!

May we ALL have His Peace that passeth all understanding always!

Hallelujah! Praise God! Love in Jesus' Name, Amen!

<![CDATA[GOD PUT ME IN HELL . . .]]>Thu, 14 Jan 2021 13:46:36 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/god-put-me-in-hellAUDIO BLOG "GOD PUT ME IN HELL"
(or just read below)



God is definitely working through us if we ask Him! He put me in my own, personal hell, to show me that evil is getting ready to be revealed!

I should start out by saying that, in the days before this event, I prayed for God to give me discernment, understanding and wisdom, as I have before, and also for the Lord to command the army of the host to surround DC, and other critical places across the Globe, and take down the evil.

So, here's what God showed me, and how he showed it to me. He TRULY works in mysterious ways. All we have to do is, 

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3


On January 9, 2021, our Heavenly Father Yah gave me a dream about hell (see my Facebook post below), followed by this Scripture when I awoke. When I awoke that morning, I had no specifics. I just knew I dreamed about hell.


Then, for the next few days, I was in like my own personal mental hell until the morning of January 12.

On January 10 or 11, God directed me to a picture of Jack Dorsey (see pic). I told my husband, This is someone crying out for help.

 Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter - Crying out for help.


On January 12, Robin Bullock, Prophet, popped up on my YouTube page. I've seen him only once or twice before. He's not one of the prophets I've watched in the last month or two, but this time, God put his video right there, titled, "Twitter Jack Dorsey Prophecy" (see video).

In this video, he is calling out a bunch of names, and then "cabal," and then a sentence, "Now, it's time for Jack Dorsey." 

Robin Bullock, Prophet - "Now, it's time for Jack Dorsey."



Another prophet said in recent months that someone, who would make a difference, would flip from dark to Light.

Others have said that demons will leave people, and they will starting speaking truth.

And they have said that God said that things will happen quickly, from one day to the next, or in the blink of an eye, and no one will be able to deny that it was GOD Almighty who was at work.

These things are coming. I have to speak truth, what God shows me. I believe that God has shown me through this sequence of events that Jack Dorsey's spirit will leave him, evil spirit(s)/demon(s).

And, from ​Joshua 5:1

​". . . that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any morebecause of the children of Israel."
 

We will see an immediate difference in him overnight, or in the blink of an eye, the way he looks, the way he acts and the way he speaks. And he will begin to speak truth about the cabal that has controlled America for decades. He will not be the only one. Hallelujah!

I did not realize that God was showing me something until the morning I saw Robin Bullock's prophesy. So, for three days, these things were unfolding, but I was clueless until a prophet pulled the pieces together for me, but God's sequence of events is undeniable to me.

God is not finished yet. Great things are coming for God's children across the Globe! Stay strong. Keep the faith. Read the Bible and pray pray pray!


Matthew 13:13-15

"See with our eyes and hear with our ears, and  understand with our heart, and be converted, and He  shall heal us."

Our Prayer Today:
(courtesy of: https://www.preachtheword.com/sermon/gospel092-power-blood.shtml

Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil and all my sins are forgiven. The blood of Jesus Christ, cleanses me from all sins.

I am justified and made righteous, just as if I had never sinned.

I am set apart for God.

My body is a temple for the Holy Spirit, redeemed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus.

I belong to Jesus now, body, soul and spirit. His blood protects me against all evil.  Satan has no more power over me, no more place inside of me. I denounce all evil spirits completely and declare them to be my enemies.

Jesus said: “And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils: ….” Mark 16:17.

Isaiah 45:11

"For the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker says this,
'Ask Me about the things to come concerning My sons,

And give Me orders concerning the work of My hands.'"


I am a believer, and in the name of Jesus Christ, I exercise my authority and expel all evil spirits. I command them to leave, according to the Word of God and in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.


Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen! ​​​

<![CDATA[MY WALK WITH GOD / I AM A SINNER PART ONE]]>Mon, 11 May 2020 18:19:38 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/i-am-a-sinnerAUDIO BLOG "I AM A SINNER"
(or just read below)



I am a sinner. We all are. But I have been a sinner my whole life. I have doubted God, run from Him for forty years, and searched in all the wrong places for the wrong answers.

My first real and only association with God until adulthood was when I was 12- to 14 years old. I recall hearing that my sister(s) told my mother to get me into a church at 12 years old. That's a tough age for children, puberty, hormones, and for parents' sanity. So, my mother and I started going to First Baptist Church.

When I was 13 years old, I was baptized in the church, in front of the congregation. I don't recall really knowing the significance of it at that moment. A short time later, my Sunday school class had a camp for the kids, and we were at camp for 10 days.

While there, we had the opportunity to be baptized again in the lake, so I participated. Looking back now, and at the time, the whole baptism was surreal. As soon as I was put under the water in the lake that day, and then lifted up, I was completely at peace ... with everyone and everything.

​At the time I had no idea that it was a very special gift that needed to be nourished daily with the Word of God and fervent prayer, and the peaceful gift soon faded after returning back to my world before church camp.

So, for another 20 years, I continued running from God, living an unrighteous and sinful life. At one point, I joined a metaphysical/spiritual church for a few years. They had a strong community outreach program, and their messages and sermons were important life lessons. My mother told me over the years to get back to God. Being the heathen that I was, I always responded with, I don't believe in that stuff, mom, or some other blasphemous comment, which I am sure broke my mother's heart.

So, for another 20 years, I continued running from God, and living an unrighteous and sinful life. Until 2018, when I was sitting in my rocking chair in the garage, and a storm was rolling in, low, grumbling, black and gray clouds, interspersed with lightning strikes and distant thunder. Then, I hear this loud, booming thunder, which seemed to start at one end of the universe and echo across to the other end of the universe, and which seemed to last for eons, or maybe two to three minutes. I was like, Okay, that was weird, and then it happened again. In the back of my mind, I knew God was demanding my attention. He would no longer let me run away from Him. My husband and I had been becoming more interested in reading the Bible in recent years and watching videos on History and archaeology.

Some months later, God told me to "help the children." I didn't hear a voice or see anything. It is more like, the knowledge just came to me. "Help the children." I prayed fervently for guidance. "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" - 1 Corinthians 13:13. After that, I created Bible for Buddies, www.bibleforbuddies.com, website and video Bible stories and lessons, to reach children with God's Word.

Let us help God's children, young and old, but especially small children and orphans who are suffering through neglect, abuse, hunger, and abortion. Over nine million children aborted in 1.5 months in 2020 is an abomination. Psalms 127:3 - "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb His reward."

We know from scripture that our sins are forgivable: John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

1 John 1:9 - "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

This is my story. Did I want to tell it? Not necessarily, but I am reminded me that we cannot hope to reach others with His glorious Word, and His promise of Eternal Life, if we cannot admit to, and confess out loud, our own sins. 

James 5:16 - "Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

Matthew 10:33 - "But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."

Our Prayer for You:


Heavenly Father, the living God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua, Marvelous, Counsellor, Prince of Princes, King of Kings. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived. I ask for your forgiveness.


I believe with all my heart and soul that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sins, and rose again, and I am now willing to turn from my sin, to repent.

You said in the Bible, Your Holy Word, that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now, I confess Jesus is my Lord and Savior, without which I am but sinful flesh. With all of my heart, I believe that our Heavenly Father, the living God, raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. Amen.

Praise Yahweh! Praise Yeshua! God Bless you all!
