I never thought that I would call suffering my friend, I sit here with fractured ribs, vertebrae in my neck warn out, recovering from a broken back, dealing with an auto-immune disease called PMR, an uncooperative chemical system, and living with the side effects of some pretty harsh drugs. There is much more in this list, but I don’t like to give sickness too much attention. Suffice to say, I have almost lost my life several times. I know many of you are saying, pray for healing. My answer is I have. It seems the harder I pray the worse I get. Now I have believed in total healing for probably longer than you have born in this fallen world. I have forgotten what a painless life is like.
I will not roll over and quit. So what do I do? I press into God’s Mercy. I have at times felt as weak as a kitten and I wish I was healthy. I always wonted a healing ministry. I have probably seen more sickness and death more than most. Ten years working in chronic and palliative care, six years doing pathologic autopsies on the dead searching for the cause of death, five years with eight mentally adult women living in my home. Through all this I was pastoring some of the most difficult people. This just scratches the surface of my involvement in suffering. I am tired of it! But I would not trade any of the, morbid experiences for anything.
One thing I can testify is that I have not been short-changed by God who says he heals and delivers. It will come. In the mean time He comes to me in my weakness. God’s Love and Kindness makes me love Him back. Sickness takes a back seat. I heard this story a long time ago. A man was jailed because of his faith. They whipped and beat on him terribly. Then he mercilessly was thrown in to his dark and filthy cell. There alone with no medical help covered in blood and bruises the Lord came to him. He felt the warmth and Love of Jesus running his hand up and down the torn flesh of his back. What he said next brings me to tears. “He was so wonderful. His love was greater than the pain of the whipping and beatings. It was so wonderful. I had a strange feeling that I wanted to be tortured again just to feel His love and touch.”
We all can see that Governments for years have been manipulating all aspects of life to bring a system not based on the wholesome attributes given to us of the mom and pa and the kids social structures. Communistic principles are being implemented in secret by our Government that breaks down every structure that has been in place forever. Tried and true social systems, that often are somewhat flawed we know, have sustained us and prospered us making our societies healthy, wealthy and wise. The tool of our governments has been a media that figures “the end justifies the means.”
How has this happened in the face of the church who preaches “God can do anything”? For the most part, through the past years, we have been pre-occupied with a proliferation of non essential issues. Now we are paying the price. A few Prophets have spoken to our situations. They have said we are warring with the insignificant while ignoring the "real" battles. I have opposed and grieved over what I have seen. The church has been fighting each other in the sandbox and not seen that someone has stolen the house. "The only way darkness can grow is when the church has lost it’s light.”
It is a terrible thing to fall into the hand of God. To all of us who have disregarded the fact that God is our plumbline and have been swimming in a dirty pond, God is now judging. He has winked at our foolery. He has watched us throw sand in each others eyes. He is full of our squabbles as the enemy robs us of our children's heart.
For many centuries we were societies that lived and breathed in a Christian environment. You could say the culture or “matrix” was religious but not always joined with Christ. During the 1960’s rising in the vacuum where much of the church lacked relevance, a new matrix rose to create a new culture. The new chant among intellectuals was “God is dead.” The, God is dead mantra, took hold of young and old minds alike. To believe in a God brought disdain towards many young believers leaving them ostracized and even mentally and emotionally persecuted. This became the matrix of university life. By removal of any moral compass or accountability, open sex became an unbridled desire giving birth to sexual transmitted disease at an unprecedented rate.
I can appreciate people raising an eyebrow. The common understanding that witchcraft is alive and well and found in much of our present rudiments of each day is quite a stretch. Many remember the Shakespeare play Macbeth. The three ugly women witches stirring the steaming cauldron whipping up a spell. Remember, “Double double toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble….Eye of newt and toe of frog wool of bat and tongue of dog.” This type of witch has always been hidden among us. It may be your coworker or your daughter's boyfriend. The news can verify it may even be your son and daughter. Many of the atrocities committed by young people we have found some very dark occult beliefs and practices.
Disappointed spirits are leaving the USA because the prayer of the saints and the Cyrus type ruler, Trump. I saw a number of “clouds” of spirits leave the Clinton empire and head to Canada. I sensed an urgency from God to block our borders with prayer. Some very high level spirits are now working in our government but they need more help from the USA. As these spirits abandon Hillary, the Podestas, and many more, a new beach-head must be found and it is Canada. The church in spiritual war must stop this. We Canadians in WW1 and WW2 showed the world that devotion and courage identified our young and small [population] nation. The call is out again and many are involved already. We must again rise to the top and at what ever cost BIND, in the unseen realm, these dark controlling, manipulating and deceiving spirits. We must kick them out of our country showing no quarter. I saw across the Nation prayers of God’s people stopping the failing agenda of the Clinton, Bush/Father and Son, and Obama from entering Canada any more than it has.
This is an URGENT request to stand between a great evil committed to stealing our nation. We Must not ignore this, the consequences would be enormous. Because God is calling us to pray it means there is still time.
Please spread this among your friends and let us never give up or surrender.
God is now rising up a line of soldiers. This is in response to His children’s fervent and persistent prayers to see the Love and Power of the Lord manifested to this world through His church.
He has been working in the lives of what is to be the key soldiers for this time. For many years, and for some, decades, He has been preparing and molding character. The heart of these folks has been subject to a "purge to purity.” Out of the ashes of our own endeavours, the Kingdom will rise in the unified body of Christ, the True Army of the Lord.
“Beware of negative declaration over Canada. Hope will come from longing to see My Mercy fall on Canada and it’s people. I responded to Moses as he stood in the gap for a rebellious people and preserved them from judgement. There are churches of obedience and Love who have My Ear. These are My Joy. There are many of My Flock that you don’t know of and many that do not yet know they are even called. These are ones shaped in darkness, hidden in obscurity being taught Kindness and Mercy. I will join these that I am jealous over, to My Church. There will be a oneness experienced between them and you and you will know how expansive My presence is in this world and in all it’s most unlikely places. You will be swelled up with Might like a "horse of war,”
Part One: Basic Character For Success in Conflict
The war is going to intensify in this season. The Lord of host is checking hearts to see who is ready for Him to teach their hands to war. It is a time of separation. Many will want to fight the dark powers and be the resistance but will be lacking the character needed. This war will be against incredible invisible evil. Deception and tyranny is well imputed in Canada with an agenda so far from all that is good and wholesome. What is good is looked at as harmful and what is harmful is seen as good. I am not at this time asked to bring forth plans and strategy in regards to this warfare. I am to disclose the conduct of the heart necessary to wrestle the father of lies. There has been too many casualties because of a zeal but a lack of wisdom. So what is God looking for in our hearts that can stand against the wiles of the devil? What are the conditions that must be in our lives and relationships to bind him and bring him down? Almost immediately we think about the armour of God found in Ephesians 6. This is NOT to be our our first preparation. God is not calling those who think they are armed into battle. God is looking for those in everyday life in the marketplace, in church and family, are functioning in His highest call. There is a condition of heart that is so loved by God that He will not send us to war without it because He knows we will fall. He desires all of us to be in this place. OK, I have kept you in suspense long enough.
The interpretation of the word maverick brings many things to mind. It is often thought of in a negative context. Yet many of us, secretly intrinsically, desire to fit in some form of personal freedom, a freedom we were made for. The book 'Wild At Heart' and it’s phenomenal success proves this point. One of my favourite Bible teachers, a teacher who laid part of my early foundation, was Dr. Ern Baxter. His teaching on the eagle and how it relates to the Christian has helped shape my character. He said an eagle in the sky is the most beautiful of all birds. The strong winds buffet the feathers not only enabling it to soar with incredible effortless grace but also the same wind cleans the pinions that enable it to fly. Put this wonderful animal in a cage and it becomes a smelly pitifully sad example of one of the greatest wonders of the animal kingdom.
Kim Clement has just passed away. Not long ago, John Paul Jackson. It is simple to say they have gone home. To be true in my heart as well as many others, there is a deep grief. Elisha the servant of Elijah or better said, the spiritual son who served the old prophet, fell to the dust in a gut wrenching sorrow at the ascension of his father to heaven. It is not wrong to feel pain and let grief have it’s season.
Those who are living the true prophet calling have been broken and are loved and trusted. They realize that their main calling is to be found living in the presence of the Lord. Before a word is spoken, there is a sense of the presence of the Kingdom. This is a powerful privilege. Unwisely, one can think a prophet is one who is almost invincible, an untouchable. It is a tragedy when anyone believes themselves to be as steady as the Rock of Gibraltar especially one who is called to bring specific wisdom and direction from God.
