“Looking to the Future” #1

20200615_181949 It was so hard for me to leave the discomfort zone of the teepee and come back to my Indianapolis home. If not for my wife, whom I love very much and always want to be with her, the teepee would likely be my home. But with the city house we have a position of outreach to thousands of souls who could use some time at the teepee, if only they wake up to it.

I spent 5 days there. When I woke up this morning in the comfort of my city bed, I turned on the radio to hear there had been 7 more shootings in my city after 1 a.m.. Welcome back to the big city I told myself. No police were involved. 2 died. 5 injured. There was a blood trail from where the 2 dead were found. Police have no idea who did this and are asking for help from any witnesses. This is the usual thing we hear on these shootings.

Do any witnesses come forward? I have no idea. We keep hearing of more shootings and no suspects. This was a Tuesday night /Wednesday morning for God’s sake! What the hell? And I do mean that…this is spawned from hell itself! Violence growing in the streets! Violence feeding violence! Violence birthing other forms of violence! The violence mutates like a virus, but it’s still more violence! 

I do believe it would only take one more spark in this perfect storm to put us in a days of Noah scenario. And I do believe if the church continues its current form, we will get there, but the target will also become the church. Not because she preaches righteousness, but because she is political, rich, and full of the world, i.e. IDOLS! The same ones faced by Gideon, Elijah, Ezekiel, and so forth. This modern day church of idols will be judged by God. It is coming. And what should a true believer do in all this? I very strongly suggest finding a true body of believers doing it the way Jesus did!

And how do we do that? Interesting. We have much to talk about in this series.

So I’m fresh back from desert time with God and he has me begin a series like this. I can hardly wait to find out what He is going to say.

First of all, you might be scratching your head and asking, “How in the world did we get here?” A Post-Christian nation? And with churches on almost every corner?” The easy answer is, we sowed the seeds for it, and there must be something wrong with our form of doing church! The right answer is not always a complicated one. Sometimes it’s so obvious it cannot be denied by “honest” people. People with an agenda will deny true answers all day long and still sleep good at night! But not lovers of truth.

However, the question now becomes, where do we go from here? And this is a very PERSONAL question. Where do YOU go from here? Where do I go from here? Each of us must answer that question for themself. But it is good to look for people who might be hearing from God and add their words to your consideration. God has always made known his secrets through his prophets. Some of us are willing to enter deserts to hear God. Some of us, when we wake, our first thought are, “What is God saying today? What might he reveal today? And what is the world revealing too?” Some of us are called to these things like others are called to be a doctor, or soldier, and etc.

I could easily write 5000 words right now and no one would read it, so I break it up in chapters that I call a series. This series is just beginning. You can read about my 5 days at the teepee / in the desert in the previous articles. It will add much to things, but in the launching of this series lets start with this… Have you heard of #walkaway?

I believe I have that right. It’s about a man who was a devout Democrat and actually cried when Trump was elected. Now I don’t know all the details to his story. I’m not about politics here, but “somehow” his eyes got opened to the real agenda and ways of the party and he got so DISGUSTED he walked away! Later he did a tweet or something, his testimony, and it went viral! Thousands have joined him in this movement! Now what would be the spiritual parallel in this? What would be the spiritual parallel to this walkaway movement?

I mentioned earlier that the world reveals things too. Many times things we see in the “material” world have a “spiritual” parallel. Maybe I can see this because I walked away from modern church just like this guy did the Democrat party. And I am not alone in this movement. I got my eyes opened as to what the early church actually was, and then I saw what modern church actually is and got so disgusted I walked away! I knew God would have his true Believers out there somewhere. Surely I could not be worse off than I already was.

Now the modern church would say I have become a part of the great falling away. But America didn’t go Post Christian under the watch of this new wine skin, it did so under the watch of the modern church! And… if the modern church is the one who has become Laodicea, whom God himself said he would spew out of his mouth, if that entity is falling away, then how can my leaving the “falling away” entity, be falling away? Would it not be me pointing out the truth? Would it not be me proving I am not one who will stand by and be a part of the great falling away? Jesus said where two or three are gathered in my name, He is in the midst of them! The early churches were small and very personal. God’s family is meant to be exactly that…FAMILY, not a congregation.

So…I guess I’ve laid the groundwork for this series. There is so much more to say. I expect to write a lot for the next few days because the need is so great. People are educating themself as to what the early church was really like, and there is a wind blowing for such a return! Also consider this > They say we are in a “culture canceling” movement in America. The powers that want to be are erasing our past culture! Okay church. Okay fellow Christian. How long will it take for them to realize America was founded by mostly Christians and we are the original culture of this country? How long before they look for ways to cancel / erase us?

We have so much to speak of. The night warrior in the sky, Gideon. I believe God is secretly developing small groups again, who will be of the anointing of Gideon and his 300. Jesus, his personally trained guys, started churches that were small, personal, “simple”, and real. How big can a group grow before it loses that? I don’t know, but were losing this country big time! The church is not seen as the answer to ANYTHING these days. More politics have become the answer, and it would seem that is even the answer the church is preaching… we need more politics? It’s a sad state of affairs. Show me one place where Jesus ever promoted any politics other than the politics of the Kingdom of God. Politics have become just another IDOL in our pews and on our platforms. Welcome to the perfect storm of 2020!

When God pointed out to me June of 2020, way back in October of 2018 when I was spending my first 2 weeks at teepee, I only had vague ideas what form it would take, but I see a lot more clearly now. Stay tuned. More coming soon.

“Vision Update” #8

20171202_173614 It was a rough night last night, as temperatures dropped and a cold breeze blew through this teepee and under my cot! I froze from the bottom side all last night, but I will have that corrected tonight, and now we dig into more of Gideon and what I believe to be the message of the hour for us today! I want to take a close look at how God says Gideon’s 300 were chosen. This will be good, folks!

We find our details in Judges chapter 7. The first point that jumps out at me is verse 2, where God explains: “And the Lord said to Gideon, The people who are with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against me, saying, My own hand has saved me.

There it is, our sin of PRIDE. “If my people will HUMBLE themselves…” According to 2nd Chronicles 7:14, that’s where it starts with God. This reminds me of the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3. They said in their hearts: “I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing, but God called them wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. He said he would spit them out of his mouth! I do not want to be a part of such a church, and this is the modern church of our day, seeking the things of this world. I’ve often said, If Jesus showed up at our modern churches and spoke from the pulpit, they would quickly grab him afterwards and say, “Jesus, we love you, but we need to send you to a Dave Ramsey seminar post haste!”

Jesus still says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit.” The mother of John the Baptist still prophesied: “He filled the poor with good things, and sent away the rich empty.” (Luke 1:53) It’s not about becoming poverty! But it is about a heart of compassion who greatly shares his goods and is humble before the Lord! How can we sit in our wealth while others are starving! It’s not about poverty, but it’s about not being RICH! Because like Jesus, you keep giving it away! Jesus was not poor even though he lived very simple, but he kept himself from being rich by constantly giving it away! I believe Jesus would have chosen being poor over being rich! Think about it.

Pride comes in many forms, and God’s Word still says pride goes before a FALL. I believe a great FALL is coming to the house of God. The gates are going to break! The flood will come through because we failed to maintain the STANDARD! We are lifted up in pride and too busy to spend time with God! Too busy to be on our faces, on our knees before Him, and unwilling to have less so someone else can have more! He sent the rich away empty! Is that what we want? Or do we want to be filled with the power of God? Gideon’s 300 was used of God to defeat an army of 135,000! And deliver a multitude of people.

So what did God do? The first “out” God offered was to the “fearful”. Verse 3> Whoever is fearful and afraid, let him turn and depart at once from Mount Gilead. 22,000 men left, and only 10,000 remained. Over a two-thirds cut! Just from fear alone! Are the pews of the average church today filled with fearful people?

But you say, I’m not afraid because I need nothing. Yes… but you are very afraid…that is why you have all your savings, insurance, the best health care you can afford, security system on your house, retirement savings, a new car that shouldn’t break down, you’re a rich man, etc. etc. and afraid to live close to being poor.

Pride and fear both come in many forms. Our Pastors today must have secure incomes. They do not live on love offerings and faith as the early church did. I see fear in so many…for they are anxious…they say they have peace, but they don’t, they run they run they run. What are they running from? What are they trying to run to?

The modern church has become like the world, and the world is full of pride and fear, even as violence is growing. Pride and fear is a breeding ground for violence.

But 10,000 was still too many! 10,000 against 135,000 and the people had so much pride they still would have said: “Look what WE have done!” And I find the next TEST the most interesting of all!

The next group God eliminated were all those who failed to be “sober”, failed to be “vigilant”, but with the Midianites nearby, they still let their guard down when they drank this world’s water! They dropped to their knees, bowing to the world, laid their weapons on the ground, put their heads down to the water to drink their fill! But there were 300 who dropped to one knee, scooped this world’s water with their cupped hand, and lapped it sparingly like a dog, while maintaining all seriousness and vigilance, like a true warrior! They understood the magnitude of the enemy around them, and drank the world’s water with great care.

9,700 of 10,000 failed that test, and were sent away. God shows us three groups. Of which are we? Then ask yourself, which one do I want to be? Because if we humble ourself and seek God’s face, he can transform our stink’n think’n into godly. God says we have a form of godliness, but we deny the power thereof. We cannot change the course our country is currently on without POWER from on high. Not more PROGRAMS! We need the POWER that Jesus had! And the early church had! We will not avoid the great falling…without the POWER from on high personally in us. Who is God telling to go home, and to whom is God saying, “Follow me.”

I sincerely believe God has given his final warning to his people. We are in a window of time, the eye of an hurricane. Will you hear God’s warnings in all soberness, and prepare yourself like a true child of God? The child is a warrior.

The keys to following God and being a part of the 300 are in the next Gideon lesson. The battle strategy God gave those 300 are very telling. Coming soon.

Teepee Blip #3

REPORT FROM THE NIGHT

20200612_214618

Where did you go Orion? I could not find you.

But another constellation filled the sky, and caught my eye.

The Big Dipper?

What are you saying, Lord?

Messengers in the night sky. When I set myself aside to seek the Lord’s face, with fasting, seclusion, and prayer…I take nothing for granted. He has always showed up in some special way. He surprised me again last night.

I plainly admit I’ve never been very knowledgable when it comes to constellations, and perhaps that makes all this even more meaningful, because I plainly saw the Big Dipper last night! I was searching for Orion. This was where I saw him so plainly back in October of 2018. I expected it would be that easy again. But everything moves. And everything has their seasons. And I could not find him at all! But last night…I saw the Big Dipper as plainly as I saw Orion before.

Was God showing me a thing? Something? Is it just happenstance, even though God knows I’m waiting on Him? Or was this God already showing up. And what do you think of when you think of a big dipper?

A dipper is usually used to scoop something up and pour it out! Is God pouring out more of His Holy Spirit as I am here seeking Him for? Is God pouring out a judgement? Could both happen at the same time? Or one leading to the other. Gideon is in the wine press and God is on the move. The stars are symbols of special messengers in the Bible.

God has called Gideon and his 300 for such a time as this. I expected to do more teaching of Gideon during this teepee time. This feels like the day.  Coming later today. Is there a Gideon anointing moving in the earth? An anointing is poured out. (Interesting.) And the fast continues.

20200612_220246
Welcome to my wine press. Simplicity.

Teepee Blip #1

So why do this? Why separate yourself into a discomfort zone? Why go to such trouble? Why weaken your flesh with fasting, and leave all the comforts of home?

Because it opens portals of the Spirit dimension. There are certain things that do that when the vale of the flesh is weakened.

As I’ve opened my Bible…here today…the Spirit took me to John the Baptist. Luke 1:15 says: “…; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost even from the womb of his mother.”

How? How is that possible? But that is the key to the power to change hearts. It goes on to say, “he will turn many”. In verse 17 > “in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts…” The power to turn hearts! The Holy Spirit!

This Gideon army I see will have power because they are filled with the Holy Spirit. It is what the Gospel teaches even from the very beginning of our Lord’s ministry, even starting before his birth, with John, the forerunner of Christ. He was filled with the Holy Spirit even before birth! And he lived in the discomfort zones of the deserts.

“And the little child continued to grow and waxed strong in spirit; and was in the deserts until the day of his showing unto Israel.” Luke 1:80

I am here seeking God in this way because I know I need more of the Holy Spirit. In this darkness rushing in, there must still be great light. Modern church has forgotten. They have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof. They deny the Holy Spirit! They that hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled. The hunger in my flesh is nothing compared to the hunger in my spirit this day. I have set this time apart for a fresh filling, if God will bless me so.

20200612_150133
This will be my night. Orion overlooking.

 

“Vision Update” #7

Inala4 I have set my sails. Tomorrow the teepee.

20181102_114913

It was at the teepee, in October of 2018, that I experienced the events I have been sharing, what I call the Vision. I have not spent time in the teepee as a way of separation unto God since that time. That’s like 20 months. Now God has me going back, after all this time, at this time? Hhmmm.

The last time I was there for a total of almost two weeks, but this time only 3 days, and there will be fasting, starting tonight. It was there I so clearly saw the Orion constellation. Orion the Hunter, the Warrior, with bow, shield, sword, belt, and hour-glass shaped body. I hope to see the night warrior again, over these next 3 nights, and ask him what he knows.

What does all this mean? I asked the Lord if I could speed up the study of Gideon and hit just the highlights? But He said slow down, and give details. Because of that, I am convinced the story of Gideon is important to the New Wine Skin, a second Reformation. I feel led to take Gideon with me to the teepee. We will teach more of him from there.

Right now is my pause before the teepee. I spent all morning again roofing my house. I have been 9 days so far, but for the next 3 I’ll be at teepee. Roof can wait. And no, my house is not that big, I’m just that slow. But I want to ponder the Vision so far, and the historical event currently happening, because we crossed a line as we entered June. The incident with George Floyd is definitely causing change. Has COVID 19, George Floyd, and Elections created a perfect storm? We’re still in it. We may see COVID again. George Floyd is not going away. And the Elections, with Donald Trump, is on the horizon! Oh my! Are we only in the eye of the storm?

First came COVID. Then came weeks of quarantine, along with free money at the same time a robust economy took a complete nose dive! People were dying. The old were especially dying. People were forced to slow down. In this forced idleness some began thinking more about God, family, friends, and loved ones. But none of this was June yet. In my Vision God had put the marker on June.

I pondered what could possibly be next? Is this not bad enough? I continued preparing for June with prayers and faith. We had a wonderful Passover with Jonathon Cahn via TV. Then we became aware of Pentecost and how it was the eve of June! So we prepared for that, and we did not miss, even as our phones lit up that night telling us that ten minutes away, in downtown Indianapolis, a forced 8 p.m. curfew was in effect! My wife and I looked at each other dumbfounded. This has never happened before! Soon we were checking all sources of news and discovered our entry into June!

What’s going on? The gates were just beginning to open from COVID 19. But this had nothing to do with COVID! Who could have guessed we would go straight from a pandemic into rioting in the streets and forced curfews? But in both cases our government was forced to react, and we are the ones reacted upon. What are these dominoes falling? We are powerless to stop? Stop an earthquake if you can. Stop God if you can. And to what does it lead when the last domino falls? What does the new world look like? And where will you be in it?

In times like these we all want to protect what is “important” to us. Some people worry about loved ones, some about money or their job, some about their house and other possessions, or things they hope to possess soon. Some worry about their health, or their rights, and their country. How have these dominoes falling affected you, and where are they still going? The election? A Depression? Soup lines? Or perhaps greater prosperity than ever before. But what of your soul?

You see, I love Spirit. I love God. And I have seen a clear difference in people like me, and the effect of all this, compared to people who don’t believe in what they can’t see. For me, this all began with God alerting me to be prepared for June 2020. He alerted me in my spirit. He alerted me way before it came. I even stockpiled some food, just because he said to, and we were able to help a few. This was because I took two weeks to get away to a place I could separate myself and seek Spirit, Holy Spirit. Because what is “important” to me is Spirit! I do things of the Spirit.

God has shown me a connection between Trump and the church just barely holding together, and an old wine skin about to rupture so the new wine can come forth! I have seen it in the two old gates of the Vision. I have moved my wife and I to this new wine skin. God has shown me hurricane winds with dry corn shucks in complete chaos, helplessly driven by a crazy wind! But the teepee was in complete peace. Now God draws me there again, because I “love” Spirit, I’m that person, but those who “love” other things “do” other things. They deal with the falling dominoes in other ways, not in Spirit. But this is my thing, my love, and all this is different for me as I watch people react in such predictable ways. I shake my head in amazement, as I seek more Spirit.

God was ready to change things in Gideon’s time too. He found Gideon threshing wheat in a wine press, in secret. My teepee is one of my wine presses. Not my only one, but one. And he gave Gideon a path no one else could have predicted. He sent him out with 300 men against 135,000! And he sent them armed with vessels they would break in order to send light forth suddenly, and trumpets to blast declaring the sword of the Lord and of Gideon. The enemy, in mass confusion, as if driven by crazy winds, turned their swords on each other. We all know how precariously balanced this world is, and how easily this could happen.

What was their weapons again? Broken vessels. Burning torches of light. Trumpets of sound, and a shout! 300 against 135,000. This was no man-made plan. This was Spirit.

We have much yet to speak and consider about Gideon, from the teepee. Coming soon!

“Vision Update” #6

orion-constellation-displayed

“Gideon 101”

The warrior in the night sky is how I think of him. God branded my mind with him that night, and then sealed it forever with that message talked about in previous article. Now it’s time to take a good look at an old story and see what it has to say to a new people in our day. Will we be the people of a new wine skin? Or will it be business as usual?

The story of Gideon only requires 3 chapters in the book of Judges, chapters 6-8. Chapter 5 ends with this final line of: “So the land had rest for forty years.” The children of Israel had gone through another one of their “sin cycles”. Repent to God. God saves them from the harvest of their own bad seeds. God shows them mercy for the life of that judge, but then they have already fallen back into sin before that judge even passes and the cycle begins again.

It seems that the “blessings” and “abundance” of God is our own worse enemy. Human nature being what it is, we don’t handle prosperity well, not spiritually speaking. And then God has to look for another person to stand in the gap for righteousness that he can use. “So the land had rest for forty years. Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord.” (Here we go again.)

So God looks for a man again, and where does he find the one he chooses? He finds him at a wine press, threshing wheat, in order to hide it from the Midianites. He’s threshing wheat, but he’s at a wine press. He’s not at a wheat grindstone, he’s at a wine press! A new wine ready to come forth! But he doesn’t yet know it! So much of the church still grinding at this grindstone we’ve allowed to go on for far too long! But the Gideons are seeking the wine press, and bringing food for the hungry, in secret! And the Angel, (capitol “A”!) calls him, “Thou mighty man of valor!”

And what was Gideon’s response? “And where are all God’s miracles our fathers told us about?” Are we not in the same boat today? Where is the power? Do you think these political battles are the answer? These are the miracles of God? I fear you have placed your faith in man-made ways and will be greatly disappointed. The Midianites and the Amalekites are coming and it won’t be a politician who saves your day, it will be a Gideon! It will be a man who God speaks to, and he obeys! His strategy will be godly, because it will be from God, and it will be light in the darkness, spirit of a breaker, and a very “small” army sounding very large! Because of the power of God, not man!

Gideon was also very HUMBLE. Does your politician fit that mode? In response to the Angel calling him “mighty”, he says: “Oh my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least of my father’s house.” (vrs 15)

According to Gideon, God had chosen the least of the least.

So Gideon prepares an altar to the Lord and calls it, “The Lord Is Peace”. And the Lord tells him to tear down the idol of Baal your father has, and cut down the wooden image, and build an altar to the Lord on top of this rock. In verse 27 we find he took ten men with him and did it in the “night”, because he feared the reactions he would get, and sure enough there were those who wanted to kill him. Gideon has caused a great disruption as to what had become the status quo! He attacked the idols that had been set up in his father’s house! He built an altar to the Lord! Does anyone see our modern churches doing that? Maybe we haven’t suffered enough yet. Maybe Gideon is still in the secret place, in the wine press. Maybe he has not yet made the move that will disrupt the status quo, but it’s coming.

The Midianites were actually the descendants of Abraham, from a man named Midian. Can you believe it? The children of Israel were being tormented and robbed by their own family tree! And the Amalekites were descendants of Esau, who God judged because he sold his birthright for beans! This is all in the family!

Now the idols they worshiped are very interesting too, because they represented SEX and PROSPERITY. According to 1st Samuel 12:10, not only did Israel fall into Baal worship, but also Ashtaroth. Our churches today are full of these idols, falling down to sexual sins of all sorts and the love of money! If ever a Gideon anointing was needed, it’s today! Divorce rates in the church match the world! And babies were sacrificed to Baal! America is overflowing with the sin of abortion! (I hope not the church!) Both Baal, Ashtaroth, and Tammuz is very much alive and well in the modern churches of our day.

I believe there is a Gideon anointing coming to a few, a remnant, whom God will be moving through in this time of judging his church! God still says… “If MY people!” 

So what does this mean for you and I? Are you one this anointing has come upon? If you’re still dwelling in the status quo, then probably not. When I told someone God had showed me we were crossing some kind of a spiritual line at beginning of June, they said, “So what?” They didn’t know what to do with that. It wasn’t specific enough for them, and if I would have tried to tell them all these details, they didn’t have time.

But even so… there is much I have done because I knew this line was coming! I was faithful to prayers, fasting and Passover. And I was even led to prepare for Pentecost this year! (First time God did that to me.) And I’m about to have 3  days at the teepee. I have not done this since October 2018 when God showed me these events.

There is always much we can do in spiritual preparations. I went to the wine press! I was threshing wheat in the secret place! Because I knew something was coming! And now it is here and it is changing everything, almost over night! And we do not know its final form! But we must come out of the harlot church and enter the wine presses with God! I’ve torn down the idol Baal in my own life! And Jesus is showing up speaking to us! The idols must come down!

This same person is very busy developing a video game teaching site. He’s having good success with it so far. Even beginning to earn money! I hope it does not distract him from being in the wine press with God. He does not read my blogs even though we are related. His church fits the typical mode of today, in which a nephew of mine, who thought he was close to the Pastor, never got a call from him when they left. Just too big to be that personal. What does it all mean? But a Gideon army is growing, and will be ready to go forth right on time.

Through Moses, God brought forth water from the rock, but with Gideon he brought forth fire from the rock! “Then the Angel of the Lord put out the end of the staff that was in His hand, and touched the meat and the unleavened bread; (note: this sacrifice sounds like a Passover meal!)… and fire rose out of the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread. And the Angel of the Lord departed out of his sight.” (Vrs 21)

Now Gideon realizes he has seen the Lord! He starts to freak out! He thinks he’s going to die! But the Lord says to him, “Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die.” The altar was named, “The – Lord – Is – Peace”.

And so… we near Gideon’s battle. That will be next episode. But I know of no other Bible hero in which a “Sword” is mentioned like it is with Gideon, when it is shouted: “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!” And yet… there is no swords in the hands of Gideon, or the 300 when they execute that first battle! Huh? They have a torch emitting fire and light in their left hand, and a trumpet in the right! No sword in their hands! But a sword certainly coming out of their mouth! (Interesting.) This is the beginning of our look at Gideon, thou mighty man of valor!

“Vision Update” #4

20181007_141704 We now have a very big task before us, the night warrior in the sky. 

There will be considerable writing involved, and only the truly hungry will enjoy. I hope to write it before I leave this Friday to the teepee for 3 days of separation. I hope to blog during that time and see what God will have me share, so I need to get this “Night Warrior” explained before Friday.

In the 24 hour event I experienced in late October of 2018, as I explained before, I did not choose the timing of it, nor did I know it was the weekend of Orion’s meteor shower! This was another unplanned surprise, as I arrived that day and found my 87 year old dad trying to blockade the gate shut against those 50 mph winds. I have spent some time explaining those gates, and what I believe to be a picture of the connection between Donald Trump and the church. This would also be a picture of the church turned very political. When this tie is broken and the gates swing open, LOOK OUT! Those 50 mph winds were wrecking havoc on those dry corn shucks, and the old gates!

One more point on this before we leave the gates and enter the teepee. Donald Trump is a symbol of financial prosperity. During the forced lock down of the Corona Virus I heard many many people speaking of how good it was to be forced to slow down and possibly seek God more than before, especially Christians. So many were speaking of how they had ignored God and they needed to maintain this quiet time with Him and with people even after society opened back up. This is a type of gates opening too.

Many weeks ago I predicted these same people would rush right back out into the world forgetting everything they had the chance to learn. Like those corn shucks whirling in every direction, they pursue their own little kingdoms on earth, their own comfort zones. But the warrior in the night sky is about pursuit of a “Discomfort Zone”, and like Gideon’s army, few will be chosen because of the way they drink this world’s water! So…a word to the wise virgins…“watch the rush”! The gold rush! Gold fever! It will happen! The flood gates open and God’s people rush back into the worship of idols…Baal! God of fertility and prosperity! And this will set up the next judgement on God’s people, the church, because they chose the rush over His peace.

So…now we leave those gates and I drive my old 1990 Ram truck back to the teepee. I have “WORDS” painted on the sides of the teepee…special WORDS…Powerful WORDS… because they are God’s WORDS!

I climb out of my truck and start heading into the teepee to get out of the wind and chaos! Corn shucks flying everywhere! But as I enter under the large shade tree and draw nigh to the entry, the winds ceased! Complete calm! I look around startled and just inches away all is still as a hurricane! The big red barn is completely blocking the wind! The teepee is sitting in complete peace and protection! What is going on this day? God is giving me a living picture, but they are jigsaw puzzle pieces, and what will I see when they are all put together?

The puzzle pieces so far are these: I rise that morning and discover my fairly new watch has stopped at 6:56:22 a.m.! (I dug out my journal and found the records I wrote.) I gather all my stuff and finally head to farm, arriving in afternoon and finding my dad in a battle with the gates and the wind! I send him in the house and I open those gates, and I leave them open. The wind is crazy and a freshly harvested corn field is sending corn shucks everywhere! As if being in a corn shuck hurricane! I finally get back to the teepee after my own battle with the gates and wind, but I am then totally amazed as I enter complete peace in the teepee zone. And this is where we have gotten so far. Next main event comes that night with the Orion constellation.

There is great meaning in what God has shown me through this warrior/ hunter in the night sky. That weekend it was mostly about the time my watch stopped, and a window of time between the moon setting and the sun rising. But a little later, God would lead me to hearing a message about something called the “Gideon Anointing”, and when He did, I immediately knew this was connected to the night warrior in the sky! But first, what of the “window of time”?

As I googled information about the meteor shower because I was unfamiliar with it, I learned there was a window of time for best spotting a meteor. This window, as a time of “greater darkness” because the moon would set, and the sun not yet risen. My journal records the greater darkness would begin at 4:59 a.m. and sunrise was at 7:59. My interest was completely peaked when I realized my watch had stopped at 6:56:22! Within this window of time with only a little over an hour left! Of course, I immediately started bugging God as to what he was revealing? And the question occurred to me, “How long is an hour with God?” As explained in earlier articles I came up with 41.6666 years. But then there was still the roughly 3 minutes of time before entering 6:59 which leaves one hour of time before 7:59.

I spent much time making these calculations and praying for God’s help. I was at the teepee alone and seeking God anyway, so what else did I have to do? But I eventually came up with the estimate of June 2020, and I considered it was an election year and would probably be linked to that, but the actual election would still be like 5 months away. So…what might be going to happen? My mind was racing and I was waiting… watching and waiting and praying and preparing for what might be…as I still am.

I only saw one meteor that weekend, but it is still special. However, the most amazing thing, and it is still emblazoned in my mind, was the Orion constellation itself! The sky got so dark out there in the country! No clouds blocked my view! And it was awesome! The stars showed like diamonds on black velvet! It was powerful! His sword! His bow! (or shield). His belt! And his hour glass shaped body! Signifying TIME! A period of ONE hour! It was all too much for me! Until now, I have really not been able to explain it to anyone in a way doing it justice. What I’m writing in these blogs will be my record of it, and my best attempt to share it with others.

There is so much to share on this night warrior in the sky. Realize…the moon sets! Even as our modern churches have lost so much of their light! As if under a bushel! They shine the world more than God! Greater darkness takes over! The SON not yet to rise! But there are still the stars! MESSENGERS! And a night warrior in the sky like Gideon! Made up of those stars! The messengers! And I believe there is a Gideon anointing God has prepared in these last days for his remnant people!

I’m ending this portion here, so as to act like chapters in a book and portion out the message. I’m writing much “today”. More coming.

Note: If you live in Indianapolis and would like to meet, leave a message and it can be arranged.

“Vision Update” #3

cart-before-the-horse

This is one more reason I left the modern day church.

We just keep falling into man-made ways, rather than depending upon the Wind. I’ve tried to be “diplomatic” long enough. I just don’t care anymore. People today have to be hit over the head with a 2×4 or they don’t hear a thing! Motorboats are roaring so loudly no one hears the voice of the sailboat! Row boats are paddling in such a frenzy they know nothing of the peace and ways of a sail boat!

The way I see it, “POLITICS” can be worked two ways. One: Do the work of a Priest. You affect the hearts and minds of people with the message of Christ by living as the Priests we are called to be. And then those people go and vote in a godly way and the country is blessed by God!

TWO: The church becomes political. We are desperate to the point of hanging our hopes on a carnal man. We try to FORCE people to live godly through politics rather than a heart transplant by the power of God. We use law. We go backwards to the laws of Moses rather than the Spirit of Christ.

Now I ask you, which did Jesus do? I also ask you, which is the church doing? 

The church has been functioning as the picture above for too long! Even the horse can’t believe his eyes! He stares at us in disbelief! We’ve lost all spiritual horse sense! And we need to repent of it and get our minds renewed back into the ways of God!

I believe the vision I had shows that our politics, and Trump, are about to backfire on the church! Big time! You cannot force righteousness. It’s always had to be a desire of the heart! If God’s earthly Priests affect the world for enough people to have that changed heart, then good leaders will be elected. But if the church lives as kings rather than Priests, guess what? You become political. You try to force righteousness. Your ways begin to feel like a dictatorship. And all hell is gonna break loose! Why???

Because for one thing, since we have not been the priesthood, light has greatly decreased, the standard has fallen, darkness has greatly INCREASED, and we will be out voted! Whether this election or the next, it really will not matter, Donald Trump unintentionally has made the church the target! The world not only wants to get Trump out of that office, but they want to make sure no one like him can ever get there again! The church is about to become Public Enemy number One! You say we have already been that? No we have not! But I fear you will soon learn the difference! (And I think it’s too late to change course. We need to get back to being the Priesthood, but the world is not going to forget what we have already done.)

The disciples were always trying to get Jesus to go political, remember? How do we forget? How do we not learn? Jesus always redirected their attention back to the Kingdom of God! He never went political! And when the church finally did, with Constantine, we ended up in the dark ages! Why is this so hard for modern Christians to see? And yet I know I’m a very small minority and the church will consider me insane, stupid, blind, or a traitor. But there comes a time when you give up caring, because you’ve spoken these things in a nice way till you’re blue in the face and it got you nowhere! Again, what did Jesus do? I follow Him. Show me otherwise.

Even just before Jesus is about to leave, the disciples are still wanting to go political, but our Lord’s answer still has not changed. He is trying to tell them spiritual things, things of the Kingdom of God, but they still have a kingdom of man mindset. >

“And being assembled together with them, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, which, He said, you have heard from me, for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now. Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”

Even as he is leaving! And how did he answer? He basically said don’t worry about that and took them right back to a focus on the Kingdom of God! He spoke of power in the Holy Spirit and being witnesses! Be the Priesthood! This is all in Acts 1:4-8. This is what Jesus did. We ask what would Jesus do? This is what he did, and so did the early church he started. But we are not the early church anymore, are we? Oh to God that we were! It can be frustrating being a sailboat in a world of motorboats and row boats. Row row row your boat stressfully down the stream!

So… the two gates I have given much detail about in previous articles. I now believe those two gates represent the connection between Trump and the church. They also represent a church gone political, as in the days of Constantine. When I showed up in the wind storm, I found my 87 year old dad out there, hanging on for dear life, and trying to tie the gates shut and blockade them with cement blocks! The wind had already blown the gates open several times. The latch which normally was good enough, simply couldn’t withstand this kind of FORCE. So my dad, a picture of the “old guard”, the traditional status quo church was out there trying to prop it all up! More programs! More man-made devices!

When I showed up the answer seemed obvious to me. I couldn’t believe he was even out there trying to do it. But the gates were acting as a net. As the old, dry, lifeless, unanointed corn shucks were getting caught and pinned against the gates, as the gates were filling with this dry lifeless stuff(!)… they were becoming solid, the wind was no longer passing through and the pressure was building like clogged arteries! But when I showed up, driving a truck with Ram’s horns (Shofar) on the hood, and being someone who has left the old wine skin, I broke the connection of the two gates and opened it up! Now the wind blew through and a sign of the old wine skin rupturing! But all those in the secret place, which are some of the words I painted on the teepee, will be marked by God. I’m not saying it will be a comfort zone. The teepee is not yet very comfortable, but do we want comfort, or POWER? And I’m not talking political power, I’m talking God’s POWER!

Usually we meet God in the “discomfort zone”. In the denying of the flesh we find the Spirit. Those who will walk on water, then, are in the discomfort zone seeking God NOW! And likely has already been for some time, but it’s not too late!

I have one more thing to share at this time concerning these two gates. The day God showed me the church and Trump, it just happened I was going to the farm later that day. When I showed up a turtle dove was perched on the left gate! Now lest some of you are thinking this is a sign that God is on the side of the party of abortion, let me correct that quickly. What God was showing me is the dove was indicating which gate was the church. It sat right there looking at me as if to say, “Have you got it yet?” And then peacefully flew off. Therefore, the gate on the right had to be Trump. Why is this interesting? (And this had never happened with any bird before! None!)

The gate on the left is old, worn, and weak; but the gate on the right is actually attached to a 4×4 post which is rotting at the bottom! The bottom of that post is greatly damaged and weakened! It is the weakest of all! My dad even put a small wheel under that section of gate to help support it! Interesting, huh. And our modern church is irrevocably attached to this man. Am I saying we should never have voted for him? NO! We can cast our votes without making a big political issue out of it, and the other choice was Hillary! She is rotten completely through! But…

If we had been a proper Priesthood all these years, it never would have come to this. The fact we had little choice is because we have failed so miserably to be the salt and the light of Christ, and become lovers of this present age. Priests are called to discomfort zones. We perform sacrifices that help people.  We are called to a life of sacrifice, not kingship. Salt gives its life away as it performs its action against decay. A candle slowly gives its life as it lights a room. Scripture is very plain on this matter, and also the life of Christ himself. We are called to discomfort zones, but the ZEAL that burns within us for the Kingdom of God, so overrides any price we pay, that it is counted as all joy to us! It’s a supernatural paradox that only happens when you’re truly in the POWER of God! It is a work of the Holy Spirit, completely supernatural! And how do you get more of the Holy Spirit? Usually in the discomfort zone.

Church…you got the cart before the horse. Some of us are realizing the truth of this and are repenting and changing. I was in some fasting and praying before Passover. I was in some fasting and praying again at Pentecost. And now I’m getting ready for a return to the teepee for three days, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, this next weekend. I will be fasting, praying, studying, and listening. I have not had a time of spiritual separation unto God in that teepee since those ten days back in October and November of 2018. I plan to take my laptop and do some blogging while I’m there. I plan to share some thoughts as I am in that separated time, whatever God will allow me. I hope you stay tuned. Maybe even tell some friends.

There is much yet to tell on this living vision I had. We have mostly spoken of the gates so far. In view of recent events, I felt it critical to share my thoughts on these gates as quickly as possible. Be spiritually prepaying yourself. Joshua faced Canaanites, Jebusites, and all kinds of “ites” in his day. But we are facing Clintonites, Obamaites, Bidenites, and etc. You get the picture. Even Joshua suffered defeat when there was sin in the camp. And I know we are not perfect, but people, we’ve drifted so far from the original pattern of the church, and what is still written in our New Testament Bible, that we have fallen into much idolatry! It’s not about being perfect! But like in the days of Gideon, there are idols to fall! Gideon will be one of our next topics of the vision, the warrior in the night sky! Stay tuned!

“Vision Update” #1

I did not expect to be writing this today, but I simply must. Faithful readers of this site know I speak of a vision (of sorts) I had back in October 2018. It happened at the teepee you see above. I built it as a spiritual retreat, and I had just gone to it to do that very thing for the first time, when all this happened. I’ve logged all of it in my journals, but I have not wrote many details of it because in some ways it’s not very detailed. The meaning of it all. However, in recent days it has been further developing like a photo in a dark room!

So… the Super Powers series will continue, and now we also start this Vision Update. This true story goes like this: > My wife was going to be away visiting her dad in Florida for a couple months. This was something she had never done before, but since she was going to be gone, I saw it as a good opportunity to go on a spiritual retreat at my teepee which was just “barely” ready for such a thing.

The timing of her trip hit in the last week of October and winter cold was already rushing in, but I enthusiastically went anyway. I did not choose this time. My wife did. But as I entered the first day, and the first weekend of my retreat, I was about to experience several things. Believe it or not, when I got up that morning, still at home, my watch had stopped! Okay…that happens, right? But this watch wasn’t even 2 months old yet! My Spidey senses began tingling! What’s going on here? Oh well. Must be a cheap watch, but it wasn’t “that” cheap. Hhmmm. I made note of the time it stopped at. I believe it was 6:57 a.m.. (As best I remember. It is in my journal.)

Anyway, my day went on. It took half my day to get ready. The teepee is built on my mom and dad’s small farm of 35 acres. They have a fence that runs around the house and barn property, and a farm type gate closing off the entry drive into property. They always keep it closed. So when you arrive, you have to stop, climb out of vehicle, open the two halves of the gate, climb back in vehicle, put it back in drive, pull in, stop again, climb out again, shut the gate… sheesh! You get the picture. But this day...

We had 50 mph winds blowing straight against those gates! I arrived to find my 87 year old dad at the gates trying to tie them shut! The wind kept blowing them open and threatening to destroy them! Not only was he tying them, but he had cement blocks at the bottom trying to hold them! And he was barely hanging on himself! At 87, a good wind can just about take him away!

Yes…these were highly unusual conditions and right at the time of me starting this spiritual quest? Hhmmm. I climbed out of my 1990 black, Dodge Ram, short bed truck, (just thought you might like to know. The small Ram head with curling horns on the hood, you know, the Shofar?) Well anyway, making matters worse, the wind was coming straight out of the west across an open corn field that had just been harvested. Dry, empty, corn shucks were flying everywhere!!! Including straight into the fence and gate making it almost solid! Corn husks were pinned to the fence and gates! This was part of the reason the wind was hitting the gates with such force instead of simply passing through!

So I climb out of the truck to rescue my dad. “What are you doing?” I yelled over the roar. “I’m trying to save our gate!” he yelled back. “Get back in the house!” I yelled to him. “We need to open these gates before they burst! Lets just leave them open! I’ll get it!” “Okay!” he yelled back, and slowly turned to be blown towards the house and fight his way in, while I fought to untie and unblock the gates! I finally got in and blocked the gates open.

Okay… we’ll start here next episode…but as a peek at the future…at the teepee that night in October of 2018, God warned me we would be crossing a line in June of 2020! The wind, corn shucks, and storm was to be a picture of it all, but He did not explain much. Also, Orion’s Meteor shower was taking place that weekend! I’ve been waiting for over a year to see what would be happening in June of 2020! I will explain more next episode, but as my wife and I sat in our living room on May 31st, just having celebrated Pentecost, our phones lit up with an official alert that Marion county (Indianapolis), was on a forced 8:00 pm curfew! Due to riots! Ten minutes from us downtown! This had never happened before! Not in my 30 years of living here! And we’re still dealing with COVID 19! These were the circumstances as we crossed the line into June 2020 at midnight that night!

It all has meaning. The warrior in the night sky, Orion. The watch stopping at 6:57. The corn husks, the wind storm, the gates and much more! This is my first time trying to give all the details of this event, hopefully in a way that will make sense when I’m done.

Story continued soon!

“Super Power Series” #2

20190807_124624
An I-Beam from the fallen Towers of NYC. The sun can shine its guts out, but if the hearts of man are full of darkness then the whole world is dark. The sun is not the light of this world!

The weight of the world is upon our shoulders. Do you feel it church? You should! Blessed are they that mourn? Are you feeling the pain of our present age? Or are you cozy, protected, untouched in your personal comfort zone? How do you change the hate filled hearts and minds of our present age? That is the task assigned to us and we are failing! Is it the world’s fault? Or ours?

George Floyd. Need I say more? Covid 19. Corona. Need I say more? Nursing homes. Need I say more? The Twin Towers of NYC. Need I say more? And who has the power to change all this? Only a powerful church. That’s right. Because… the sun above is not the light of this world. That sun can shine its guts out but if the hearts and minds of people are dark, the whole world is full of darkness, and how great is that darkness! God says in the days of Noah the whole earth was filled with violence!

I know this is crazy, but at this time, on this Pentecost weekend, God has me doing a series on POWER? Hhmm. This ought to be good. God’s got to prove it to me on this one.

Real LOVE cannot be mass produced on any assembly line or forced into society by any man-made laws. Build as many jails as you like, it won’t change hearts. God has assigned his church that responsibility to be a light upon a hill and the standard for all to follow, but we are failing miserably. Where is the POWER? The early church turned the world upside down, but not us. The world has turned us upside down! And so much so that were depending on a man like Trump to save us. Sad indeed. Pathetic.

We know where the POWER is, don’t we? But it will cost us. It will cost us “personally”. Who’s willing to pay the price? Evidently not enough of us. At least not yet. How bad will it need to get before we get back to the POWER?

We talked about POWERS in the first episode, and how God gave you some…in your creation… in the primordial supernatural soup he stirred you in. But you think it is silly to consider your gift to teach, or write, or sing, or invent, or lead, or run faster than anyone, or lift more weight… you think it is silly to think of these as super powers that can save some one, or some few, or a multitude? What are your God given POWERS? The reason they can’t save the world is because your using them in your own power, not God’s!

Yes, there is a price. The oil of his anointing. The Day of Pentecost. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Child of God…if you claim his Name…then this is your POWER…but are we the foolish, or the wise? Have we lost all knowledge of the old ways? The magic, the mystery, the paradox, the supernatural!

In the first episode I spoke of my top three super powers. Teacher of God’s word, writer, and working with my hands to remodel homes. I just spent all morning putting new shingles on our roof the old fashioned way, with nail and hammer. No air gun. Just my hammer and a bucket of nails.  That super power blesses my wife, and perhaps a few others, but it won’t save the world. However, words on paper, or blog, this thing I’m doing now…it has POWER to INSPIRE! To change hearts and minds! To bring LIGHT! Ignite a FIRE! The message of Christ is the only LIGHT in this world, because it is the message of pure LOVE, and no HATE! It is the message of the changed heart empowered by God!

The sun can shine all day but the world is a dark place because of the hearts and minds of people. And the modern church fails. People are leaving her to find the simplicity of what does not fail. Some would rather walk on water than have a fat bank account. The love of money, the greed, the distractions, the stress, the self-centered mindset, nothing but cement shoes pulling you down, like Peter when he took his eyes off the Lord.

We got to get back to the POWER. For the church, and for God’s people, the POWER is connected to the supernatural. The magic, mystery, paradox, and Spirit of God. The modern church is too lukewarm to know of these things. In our House Fellowship this week, we had another Lord’s Supper, Communion, and prayer to be counted faithful for whatever God may pour out of his Spirit today, and every day! And we did not miss Passover! Which set us up for the Pentecost, but what does our modern church know of these things?

You know, the right song sung by an anointed minstrel of God can change the world. That’s a super power. The right teacher… the right servant…the right mechanic… the right police officer… the right politician… the right plumber (such as Smith Wigglesworth), can potentially change the world when God’s POWER flows through them. The modern church has incredible talent, but who’s writing and singing the songs that’s changing the world? Where is the POWER? It’s not the modern church. What good is your talent without the power of God?

So how do you shine the light of Christ? How does he shine through you? Is it with POWER? Are you willing to pay a price? Are we paying the price, making the sacrifices all Priest are called to make? Or is it just a game with you? Not to be taken that seriously? C’mon now, nobody really lives like that now days, do they? Hhmmm. And that’s why we are where we are today, the whole earth filling with violence and becoming the Days of Noah.

No one fast anymore. No one really prays. No one memorizes chapters of their Bible. No one gives their money away and risk poverty. No one loves to the point of real sacrifice anymore. UNLESS… someone begins to get a vision… and God breathes on us…and breath begins to enliven the dry bones of a dead army! Can the sails of such a mighty ship be filled with heaven’s Wind again? Can these bones live again?

I’ve seen a lot of heroes during these COVID days. But where are the godly?  There are a few, but too few. The light of the church is more than showing the light of the “good”, but it is also about the LIGHT of the GODLY. We need to set our bar higher. The world and the worldly are making us look bad. What we see in the earth today, it’s our fault! As the scriptures say: If… “MY”… people…. It’s our fault. I don’t expect unbelievers, or even those who play at being saved, to understand what I’m saying in this article. But an awakening has happened, and there are those who do. Perhaps I write for them.

A final note> It’s time for me to begin reaching out more with our Home Fellowship. We have more room in the house now. Yes, it is still a work in progress, but perhaps there are some who would like to be a part of that. We are located on west side of Indianapolis, Indiana. If you would like to “meet”, simply leave a comment and we will set up a place and time. We’ll enjoy a cup of coffee, some conversation, and go from there. Simplicity is one of our values in this Fellowship. It don’t get much simpler than coffee and conversation. I’ll buy.

We have much more to write on this “Super Powers Series”. More coming soon.

5883
Let us come together and share our super powers, that we might turn the world upside down, before it explodes from within. Perhaps God will grant a little more time.
