What is True

MATTHEW 24:36

But of that day and hour no one knows,

not even the angels of heaven,

but my Father only.

Matthew 16:3

And in the morning ,

It will be foul weather today,

for the sky is red and threatening.

Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky,

but you cannot discern the signs of the times.

Jesus has told us to discern the times and we will know the end is near. We will know the end is near.

He himself said no one knows the time, no man can say it is now or it is then. No man knows just God in heaven.

We had a good evening, good food, good company and good conversation. I love those kind of Saturday nights even if it is just my wife and I at Skyline Chili. We had an early dinner and plenty of time to just sit and talk. We both had said how empty the place was but that it was early. I remembered the "doomsday prophet" and mentioned to Tam that we could have saved our money since it is the last day or we should have gone out somewhere fancy.

I cannot believe this man was able to collect $72 million dollars. I saw on the Saturday Early Morning Show all of his big trucks all painted up so pretty. Hey I am a truck man and they did look really sharp! I think though if I had the money collected like that I would be out to preach to people as much as I possibly am able. I know I quoted just a few verses but Jesus said when men like that comes around then not to follow them, turn a way. How can the masses be so ignorant as to follow these type of " doomsday preachers"?

I Will Tell You How

My opinion is Christians have backed down. We no longer preach,"Thus saith the LORD." We have sat idly by for so long the secular world no longer takes us seriously. Our country was formed on the precepts of God's Word. It was declared by the masses to be a land where we may openly worship and speak of God. This without fear of the government quieting our voices. We have failed our calling and now the repercussions are upon us. Ezekiel chapter 3 speaks of the results of not speaking to the wicked to warn them of the wrath of God. It speaks to us of speaking to the righteous that have fallen from God's Word and returning them to the truth. I am afraid we have blood on our hands.

Our idleness has taken prayer from school, the Ten Commandments from public buildings, and soon open air preaching off the streets. Our lack of displaying the love of God has opened up to these type of preachers to be out spreading heretical preaching. Sure they would still be among us and spewing their vomit to the masses. However if we were true to our calling God would speak through us and our words Spirit led would prevail. I look at the old great evangelists of yesteryear and I am amazed how effective were their voices. They boldly preached with power and conviction. All who listened were stunned by the power of God flowing through them.

Prayer and fasting

I urge all who read this to make it a point to join the Great American Fast. Website is given on the side. It has an awesome article on prayer and fasting on the featured member page. This lady of God is a fellow hub pages member. She speaks with grace, truth and conviction. I was in tears reading how she explained true fasting. I know where I have failed God in this area. She speaks the same of the power of prayer. I again was so convicted I had to wipe my eyes again. When was the last time you were totally lost in prayer? Not just a few minutes but where time stood still? Where you did not have anything but God on your mind and pouring your heart out to HIm? Both of these areas she spoke on tore my heart, I realized just how much I fail to fall upon my knees and truly get lost in prayer tomy Heavenly Father. I know I have not gone without to get filled from Him.

Will You Join ME

Will you join me in total surrender to prayer and fasting as GOd asks of us? Will you put others off and yourself to find the power God has waiting for us if we just completely yield to Him? Now is the accepted time in my life to no longer do it by myself. Now is the time I hand it, every bit, over to the Master. Will you join?

Michael, you speak the truth here and we hear so much prophecy and our ears are tuned to these doomsday prophets,and we don't ever think what might happen if we all (the body of Christ) prayed and fasted in one spirit for our nation! Prophecy and its foundations are already laid out in the word, and we need to get back to the basics of the gospel. This is why the church lost its power. No prayer, no power in your church. G-d needs to hear from His people, He desires it, he wants to hear our cries and our worship of him, you can't think a prayer, you must open your mouth and speak it, and oh my, this is incense to His nostrils. Most Christians never reach the Holies of Holy in their prayer life, because they are not willing to weep for this nation and put on sackcloth and fast for a dying nation. Most prayers are two minutes and on Sunday, we never get past the tabernacle water basin (manna stage of prayer where we are asking for OUR needs) We can change our situation in America by prayer and fasting, we to first get past the Manna and milk and get some meat into our prayers. Go into the Holy of Holies with the mind of Christ in Us, and amen, we are walking in spiritual principles in the Holy Of Holies, G-d is listening to us now. But the ulitmate is to commune with Him in the cool of the evening which is HIS beginning of a day. This is His choosing to come to us in the Garden of Eden, and Christ's sacrifice made it possible for us to boldly go before the throne without the curtain. You approach the Holies of Holies with great humbleness and a weeping spirit, and you hallow His name upon entrance. Praise and worship for the King of Kings and Creator of the Universe. It is within this communion that you have G-d so after your heart that you petition Him with much grace for another. It is when we get to the point of love for others that is more important than ourselves that we can enter the Holiest of Holies and get results. I learned a great deal about prayer from a man that was after G-d's own heart, King David. G-d doesn't care about your pretty prayers at the altar on Sunday morning, but if you go and throw yourself on His altar with weeping in your heart and you are so heavy with burden for a matter of His will like bringing a nation back to Him or prayer for someone who is suffering, this is the matters of G-d's heart that has entered into your heart. This is the fast I want saith the Lord, that we lift the yokes and burdens from their shoulders. If you are fasting to be a better person and fast without this type of prayer it won't get passed the clouds, but let the love Christ has put in you overflow onto others and He will meet your needs. The interview Michael is talking about was an interview I gave to the Great American Fast and here is the link, I hope you read it and join us in this prayer and fasting for American on July 3rd!http://www.thegreatamericanfast.org/featuredmember...

I think an even greater dilemma than us not speaking out is the church itself being in such a sickly state. If Christians knew the Bible and actually read it they would have known that no one knows the day nor the hour and the false prophet would never been so successful in deceiving them.

Sad thing is that Christians in this modern age have done the worst damage being hypocritical in practice the practice of our faith that we are legitemately the laughing stock of the world. We are not mocked for righteousness sake we are mocked because of how foolish we look. Proclaiming that our ticket is punched for heaven while being guilty of the very same if not more heinous crimes in the world.

This guy who did this just added the religous foolishness to the bag of already strange versions of Christianity how can we be effective when we are so sinful ouselves and look so weird.

Agreed fasting and prayer and let judgement begin with the house of God. When we are cleansed (sanctified) and become totally loyal and genuine in our faith in Him shown in our obedient actions only then will we be an effective force in the earth.

DJ,

You are so right if we want to reach the holiest of holies then we need to be on our faces in prayer, seeking the truth, and giving our total surrender to the Father, then when we get out of that prayer we need to open the Word and not just read or study a bit but learn it, it is time to stand in truth and in Spirit and not let go no matter what, For Jesus said," I will never leave you nor forsake you." So why not stand and fight the fight.

Tamarajo,

I cannot even comment on the first two paragraphs of your reply other than to say AMEN sister! Prayer, fasting and surrendering to God almighty surrendering everything of our entire being is what we need to do to restore not only our nation but our churches. I am glad that our pastor weeps of the sin of the church and takes such a strong stance on this matter.

My heart ached when I read that Christians have backed down. Sad but true. I recently fasted during this past Lent and receive much divine revelations but I will join you in prayer and fasting. Thank you for sharing...

Michael! I will join you Brother! I agree with you wholeheartedly! We have gone so far astray as a Church! I woke up during the night recently with the prayer in my mind--"When you return Lord, will you find ANY faith in your Church? Please HELP us find the faith you died to provide us."

I look forward to this fast in July! I hope that we will have many who join us in this committed effort! Brother Lifegate has worked so hard to pull this together--God Bless him for that!

Thank you for your faithful heart for Christ Brother! Wonderful, inspiring hub!

Michael again we MUST not stop in telling the TRUTH about when Jesus will come back to take His own, but first the lawless man must come and he will claim he is God and he will destroy those who believe in what he says, its up to us to get the true message across

God loves all

Just wonder, did the acorn falls on Harold Camping like the classic story Chicken Little / Henny Penny while is camping? "The sky is falling " he heads out to warn the king.In the end ,the sky doesn’t fall and the world doesn’t end.

Just wonder, is Harold Camping- the boy who cried wolf? This classic fable is well known. The difference between the chicken little and this fable .. the wolf does show up..and the world does end..

just wonder is Harold Camping like John the baptist the voice in the wilderness ? We need to take heed!!!!


Michael Adams1959 profile image

Michael Adams1959 5 years ago from Wherever God leads us. Author

Harold Camping is nothing like John the BAptist, He came from the wilderness crying out prepare ye the way of the Lord, The Lord Jesus came and John the Baptist baptized Him, John also said He must increase and I must decrease, John the Baptist did the work of our heavenly Father and then stepped back as Jesus began Hid ministry. Camping is a false prophet Jesus said would come, Jesus did not say Harold but He said many false will come in the last days, heed not to them.

Michael,

I was just thinking--what a waste of 72 million dollars. Can you imagine what 72 million dollars would do for world missions. We have a lost and dying world at our doorstep and people believe foolish teaching like this. I join you my brother, in total surrender to prayer and fasting as God asks of us.

Lifegate,

Exactly, what if the money paid for homeless, needy, starving people? Or pay off a few churches debts including mortgages? It could have made a major difference for people. Now it is just wasted. I saw a guy on the news that had put his retirement for it $140,000 what a waste! But we have the Way to Truth. We have the True Words of Jesus Christ and that is how we can win the people and this nation back to God.
