5 DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS  E-mail

What a day after Christmas as many are still sleeping after 9 am and I have been up since 6:30am ready the Bible in Malachi to see what it was like before the New Testament. It was a time when God needed to usher in a new area called grace. People had become so used to doing their own things and it became a problem to the masses and not just a few. Only God could restore order, to enable and empower man to live in peace and have good will to empower one another to work for His will not ours. People had become pride full of wickedness like stubble, no good, but used as fertilizer to grow more evil. The sun of righteousness was coming with healing in His wings, to tread down evil ways and save us from sins that crumble our lives as we abide in Him. The Lord wants to rebuke the devourer that destroys the fruit of the land. God wants to restore us as we bring our tithes into the house of the Lord, so the store house will always be full to help others. The Lord wants us to return unto Him, so we can be refreshed daily as we are empowered as we abide in the vine.
So may you see you need for making sure your body-soul and spirit are united in having faith in doing and obeying Gods word and not listening to Satan as man has been doing since time began.
 
 
Here we are in the second day after Christmas and reading Amos who lets us know those who seek God are going to truly live, for they hate evil and love good. They know who establishes good for the purpose of being able to judge. Judgement is needed to make sure we are disciplined to do good and be righteous. We hear the term day of the Lord and Amos refers to it as darkness no light very dark, and is that not what is going on around the world and are we not given to being captive by the enemy with sin? That is the reason God uses the plum line, He is the one in charge of how we build and what we build upon. So, who is in charge of your life is determine by who has the Plum line in His hand? God will build the waste city Jerusalem and no one will pluck Israel out of Godís hands that was given to them.
What is going on now is no different than what happen in the beginning when man wanted to be like god and do whatever he wanted than after it was all over have to hide for they were ashamed. 
We are living in a time when there is no shame in evil for it is entertaining and holds us captive to its charm and excitement and we canít wait for the next page or next thrill of seeing the unbelievable episode. Entertainment is filling many Churches and it works. May we understand the Plum line God uses is His, and He loves us and does not want to see people destroy people. Life is not a game it is a way, truth and life thatís built upon the platform of Gods righteousness and holiness that s pure solid rock. Full of love, mercy and grace that needs discipline in order to be just for all. Remember God is going to judge us according to our works for without works we are dead in our trespasses of sin.
The wages of sin is death, the gift of God is life everlasting, for Godís love, mercy and peace of goodwill to men, is still bringing people out of bondages to accepting abiding in the vine and resting in the out stretched hand of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
3 days after Christmas reading Revelation to catch a glimpse of what is going on in these last days. For we are seeing and reading the word of God and comparing it to the Biblical account of the way, truth and life. We do not know what is happening until the Spirit of God reveals Himself to us, as we travel through our course given by God. God is ready to combat evil just as in the beginning of time and we have to be connected to His source of energy to benefit from His blessing, without becoming embittered. He is gracious to give us peace now and every day, when we are abiding in the vine; Jesus.  God then can give us the ability to hang on to the truth of what is happening in a world of media not proclaiming truth, but what they want truth to be, so a lie is now truth and truth is a lie. Just as the Lord said, to Paul in Romans 1:25. It is so easy to have dementia which fails to give us the understand to know the truth. Just as dementia is very hard to address and cure, so it is with lies, they are hard to see, for they destroy the ability to make wise decisions based on what is good for all.
God gave us all we see to enjoy, so we can benefit from His wonderful works of art, as we stay connected to Him, communicating and listening to His desires.
As Christians, we are in an oven and the heat seems to be turn up, for evil is on the rampage, killing thousands of innocent people around the word, but the fire of the Holy Spirit is cooking and empowering thousands to witness Godís Devine intervention. The closer we get to the return of the Lord for the Church, the greater the manifestations of His hands out stretched still. This is seen where evil of ISIS and the false church is deceiving thousands, yet Godís Spirit is being accepted by many torn by the wickedness around them. That is Gods Spirit being in control as people turn and let Him witness to them of His love, mercy and grace.
Man, was created to achieve his or her potential as we keep on asking, seeking and knocking for Gods will to be done and not wanting our way. Wanting our way is what Adam and Eve wanted in the garden and ever sense we are infected with sins disease, that is rampant and we see it by the bitterness around the world, and God created us with a mind to repent and become a child growing to become more and more like Lord.
So who are you becoming more like God or Satan.
4th day after Christmas I am looking at the 7 Churches of Revelation 2 to 3 to see the ages we have been though as a Church. This is Charles Larkenís writing I like very much for it is so biblical.
1.   Ephesus Rev. 2-1-7 the Church that had forsaken its first love. Backslidden-let go to relaxedn no hold on, or abiding in God, but the false Church
2.   Smyrna Rev. 2:8-11 The Church that would suffer persecution. Like a Bitterness, meaning; Myrrh, associated with death. The time of Nero A D. 64 ending with Diocletian in A.D. 310 to Constantine in A.D. 312
3.   Pergamum Rev. 2:12-17 The Church that needed to repent. Licentious Church, eating things offered to idols, sitting on Satans seat. The Balaam doctrine of committing whoredoms. Pergamos means marriage. From period of A.D. 312 to A.D 606 when Boniface 3rd was crowned.
4.   Tyatira Rev. 2:18-29 The Church that had the false prophets, a lax Church, no works listen to Jazebel a prophetess. Represented by the Papal Church, from A.D. 606 to the reformation in A. D. 1520., Jezebel of the Church of Thyatira. The Woman referred to latter in Revelations.
5.   Sardis Rev 3:1-6 The Church that had fallen asleep. Dead men walking, yet a name to live. Formalistic-ritualistic- form of godliness but no power. The escaping or coming out of was necessary to lie. It was the time of Martin Luther and a number of other reformers protesting against false teaching, tyranny and claims by the Papal dictatorial rule. Martin Luther began about A.D. 1500 to protest, setting in the reformation that opened up the Bible that was chained down.  It lasted from A.D. 1520 to A.D. 1750


6.   Philadelphia Rev 3:7-13 The Church that had endured patiently. A Favored Church known as Brotherly Love-It had a little strength as Revivals sweep the land, George Whitefield in A.D. 1739 followed by John Wesley and Charles Finney and D. L. Moody. It was also an open door that no man could shut. 1793 William Carey sailed to India and there was not a county in the world that was not affected. Then it was keep from the hour of temptation that comes upon all the world which is still future. This period cover from 1750 to 1900 to when Christ returns.
7.   Laodicea Rev 3: 14-22 The Church with the lukewarm faith was a commendation, but much to complain about. Nothing more disgusting than ďtepidĒ water, lukewarm. This described the Church of England, that drove John Wesley to start a religious fervor or fire with in the Methodist Church, William Booth in turn was known as the ďRed HotĒ Salvationist. Our churches today are largely in this lukewarm hearted spirituality condition. (This is when our Canville Family came to the United State as the Church was very dictatorial back in 1010). Now evangelist, and singers are hired and soul winning is made a business, and it all is caused by Self-deception. Thinking they are rich and they were outwardly not inwardly for they were full of dead menís bones. Worldly, playing cards, video games, watching any old movie, dancing and drinking and who knows what else, for they have become their own little gods taught by New Age, you do your thing and I will do mine, do not bother me and I will not bother your mentality. The church was not burden with debt, but with wealth. They did not see they are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked.
      When you visit such Churches, they praise the building, preaching, singing and size of congregation, and the attractiveness all of all they do. Spiritual life or conversions of unsaved is not seen and yet they need nothing.
Lord help us to see it is not money that causes the world to be converted, it is by the Holy Spirit of God.
The gold was not refined or tried by fire, it was cankered or secured by fraud, Note James 5:1-4.
Blind or near sighted, they could see their world prospers, but needed Eye Salve from the Lord to heal their Spiritual vision.
They were naked having good material looking great, but the person of Christ was missing, no white pure garments of praise to God for what He was doing.
So God is standing at the door and knocking for they do not let Him in, so God is standing outside Knocking, so it describes them as being a Christ less Church. 
What are we taught, I need to hear His voice and come to Him and sup with Him and He with Me. John 15. Letís learn to abide in the Lord and relax without being ashamed of the Lord and what He is able to do in our world today, as we trust and obey the way, truth and life given to us by His Spirit thatís pure, holy and righteous. 
Day 5 after Christmas look at whatís next first we saw the completion of the Church age in the seven churches and the end seen in the third chapter now we are looking at the land of Israel as it is going to be after the rapture of the Church.
Chapters 4 and 5 are introductory showing us the Prophetic Actions of the Seal, Trumpets, and Vials. Letís go into the open door. It goes from Patmos; earth to heaven after the rapture. Church age over now a door to Heavenís voice as of a trumpet to come on up and I will show you what is going on and John was immediately taken to heaven where Jesus was sitting on a throne. Really depicting the rapture of the Church. Now the Holy Spirit is gone to heaven where life is forever good and wholesome and sin is no longer revealed by the Holy Spirit and on earth the tribulation begins.
Notice a heavenly throne with God sitting on it as the light of the world and the appearance of fire, bright as the appearance of bow being in the promise, promised. Things on earth are about to be changed for the throne is not Grace but lightening voice thundering judgement. Like a sea of glass mixed with fire showing those martyred by the beast in 7 years of tribulation. This throne was like the mercy seat of the ark of the covenant. The veil is open and we see into the heart of the Lord.
Revelations 4:4 the four and twenty elders are seen, the four elders are the redeemed men, the Old Testament and New Testament saints redeemed by the Blood of Christ. Which are sealed seated on thrones not just seats ready for judgement.
The Judgement Seat of Christ crowned elders who passed the fiery test of judgement of rewards and received their crowns, the crown of life, glory and righteousness singing a song of the Redeemed. The have on royal robs that are white; the garments of Priest. Paul said Do you not know the Saints shall Judge the World and Angels 1 Corinthians 6:2-3.
This is all found as you read Clarence Larkins Study of the last Prophetic Book of Holy Scripture on the web under www.gracebbc.dyndns.org.
