Dec | 31 | Seeing the stupendous!

ASK

Seeing the stupendous!

Jeremiah 33:2,3
"Thus says the Lord who made it, the Lord who formed it to establish it(the Lord is His name): 'Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.' NKJV

http://www.66pictures.comPart of any prison stretch for the Christian are the moribund’s of misunderstanding. Like a lost ship on a flat calm sea, our sails are still, and we are desperate both for the waters of sustenance to fall and the winds of deliverance to come and blow once more. This flat calm of wondering, this flat calm of waiting, this long flat calm of the ever questioning why, has left us ignorant of the ways of God and worse still: suspicious of His faithful love and goodness. This is not a new condition, and are not alone in it.

Now then, apart from Jeremiah’s personal, present temporal suffering, as a Prophet to the nations and a great lover of his own, obediently holding the deeds to a field he has recently bought as a down payment testimony to the coming judgement of God, Jeremiah did not understand how God could restore such a rebellious nation as his which was still apparantly destined for doom? From this particular dark, this prison of utter ignorance, God now challenged His prophet to call to Him for understanding.

http://www.66pictures.comSo, look now: Jeremiah is still in prison when God says these words and the truth is for us all, that there are ten thousand types of prison in our lives. The prison of fear, of need, of misunderstanding, of rejection, of sorrow, of regret, of wrong choices, of depression, of hopelessness, and the list seems to run on interminably. Yes, no matter what type of prison we might find ourselves in, God can and often does come and visit us in these prisons . Remember these two very important points then:

First that these verses, all pregnant full with present invitation and coming answers, belong to a much beleaguered and bound, frustrated and crushed servant of the Lord. Is this you?

Secondly, that Jeremiah actually heard more from God in prison than he ever did in a palace! So then, as the clouds of this day shall draw the dark bedclothes of the night over yet another passing prison day for you, are you expectant in your prison tonight? Are you listening still?

God's plans for your future are indeed inaccessible to you. Only God can unlock such secrets of your future. Be encouraged though, for God offered this knowledge to Jeremiah. “Ask” He says, “and I will show you hidden things, unthought of things, undreamt of things, even unthinkable things! Yes, I will show you things kept locked up in a safe and guarded things, inaccessible things, stupendous things which are a coming down the track! All of these things and more, just ask and I will show you them to you. And when you ask Jeremiah, even as the display of this knowledge shall cast a bright light on your nation’s sinfulness, yet, I will still answer; I will still show; I will still come; and I will still cleanse; yes, I will still pardon.”

http://www.66pictures.com
The new year is always soon upon us dear friend, and despite the uncertainty of the darkness of your ignorance, look at how speedily you you be sucked into all of its demands. In addition to this dear Christian, before you disappear into maybe your own escape tunnel digging, right now, it is imperative that you call to God and ask for knowledge and grace, even light and understanding, regarding what He shall do in you, about you, for you and with you this coming year. Do it now, for this is the year to see the stupendous!

Listen:- “Thus says the Lord who made it, the Lord who formed it to establish it(the Lord is His name): 'Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:2,3 KJV

Pray: -  Father, please show me what You are doing and are going to do. Father please show me Your glory as it pertains to my life and my calling in particular. Father, show me Your workings, that I might be released me from my prison cell. Yes my Father, please give me now a brand new ship, and take me down to the great waters where I might see all the wonders of You, my Lord and my God. Amen, and let it be so.

Dec | 29 | Vanishing pride

CONFIDENCE

Vanishing pride

Habakkuk 1:12
Are You not from everlasting, O Lord my God, my Holy One? We shall not die. O Lord, You have appointed them for judgment; O Rock, You have marked them for correction. NKJV

I have said it before and I shall say it again: I am old enough to remember turning off the old black and white TV set and seeing the picture collapse into a bright dot in the centre of the screen before seeming to diminish and vanish into the infinite distance of the grey-green cathode ray tube. Distance has a vanishing point to our ever-searching eyes. As we stand on our own particular point on the time line and stare either as far back into time as we can see or as far into the future as our dreams or nightmares might carry us, we could also say that we peer from ‘vanishing point to vanishing point’, or as the Hebrew might express it: from everlasting to everlasting.

God is from everlasting. Like a large compass He stretches from the vanishing point to vanishing point and at each point along the line, He is fully present there, all at once, at the same time. Indeed, He is even before the historical eastward appearing vanishing point and after the westward disappearing future one, yes, God encompasses all and is in all. God is from the before beginning. He is from the East. He is the unchanging and ever certain light of the day and Jesus is His bright and morning star! What God has decreed, will come to pass. What God has covenanted shall not be broken. What God has declared will not be found to be a lie. Therefore, Habakkuk bases his incredulous intercession now on the tried and tested, proved and not found wanting, historical revelation of the very person of God Himself: Jehovah. Following this, Habakkuk also immediately testifies regarding the unyielding and holy nature of Jehovah and then wraps it all in the associative cry of his own dear heart. “Are You not from everlasting, O Lord MY God, MY Holy One?” As Matthew Henry intimates, Habakkuk might be saying: “We are an offending people and You are an offended God. Yet, we are still Your offended people and you are still our offended God.” I like that.

The Christian then may offend his heavenly Father, but He is still His heavenly Father to offend! Yes, the son may shame His heavenly Father, but He is still His heavenly Father’s son! Do you see this? So, at all points then, and in any situation and in any land, yes, the blood bought believer, no matter in what shade of darkness he might find himself in, can always say, “Are You not from everlasting, O Lord MY God, MY Holy One?”

We can and more than that, Habakkuk now intercedes with three most certain and fantastic, full faith declarations. Here they are:

  1. We shall not die. O Lord, 
  2. You have appointed them for judgment. 
  3. O Rock, You have marked them for correction.

Habakkuk sees the truth of the situation. God shall preserve a remnant. Israel shall not utterly be wiped from the face of the earth. Further than this, just as the Nazis found out, the proud judgment sword are also appointed themselves for judgment! Unlike Israel, they shall disappear forever! Indeed, in Germany of old, even the Swastika, that emblem of a once all conquering regime, eventually became that very mark of international contempt, which caused both the former wearers and its acceptable use, to be removed from history forever.

So shall God always deal In such a way with the proud people of this planet.

Listen:- The pride of your heart has deceived you, You who dwell in the clefts of the rock, Whose habitation is high; You who say in your heart, 'Who will bring me down to the ground?' Though you ascend as high as the eagle, And though you set your nest among the stars, From there I will bring you down," says the Lord. NKJV Obadiah 3-4

Pray: -  Lord, before you have to humble me, I humble myself before You of King of ages and Lord of all. Father, thank You that You are faithful and despite my waywardness and willfulness, You are still my Father and I am still Your son. So then O Lord might we always say from any pig trough: “I will arise and go to my Father and say, Father….”

Dec | 28 | Incredulous intercession and the corrosive Chaldeans

DARE

Incredulous intercession and the corrosive Chaldeans

Habakkuk 1:12
Are You not from everlasting, O Lord my God, my Holy One? We shall not die. O Lord, You have appointed them for judgment; O Rock, You have marked them for correction. NKJV

Habakkuk knows the sinfulness of his own people. As a seer, he has also been allowed to see the judgment which God is going to bring upon them. However, and further still, he has also been able to see the glittering and terrifying sword of that judgment begin to rust and rot before his face, revealing all its dirty and jagged rusted edges. The Chaldeans are self corrosive.

So, from this terrible and now confusing vision of a warped sword of judgment, Habakkuk now turns again to face the ears of the Lord and intercede now with some happy incredulity! Though this is a “You’ve got to be kidding me? Right?” kind of prayer, Habakkuk’s deliverance of it, testifies that he has at last found a solid place to then stand and wait for God to answer. Habakkuk, you see, knows that after this prayer, frankly, there is nothing more to be said, for he is calling on the Pure and Holy Rock of Righteous Judgment to respond to His own eternal declaration and unalterable response to the Chaldean’s idolatrous pride: “I will being you down.” 


‘Incredulity’, you see, is the name above that archway of the unsought for entrance to the garden of God. So, be sure of this: When we perceive a seeming inconsistency in action, or reaction of God, then it is time to turn and look for that hidden archway and that open mouthed doorway of ‘incredulity’. When you see it, then go through it quickly, running, smiling and shaking your head, and though you find no green grass to sit or kneel on in this part of the garden of God, you shall never the less find many an ageless and immovable rock to set your quivering legs upon. Stand still on them and just wait there now there my friends, yes, stand on the unchanging statements of the character and intention of God and you shall find that it is these very rocks which you are stood upon which become the big buzzers of God’s doorbell and that by and by, God Himself will come to answer. Habbakuk had found this incredulous inconsistancy and was happy. The sword shall at least be broken across the backs of those it strikes in judgement.


There are times in our life, when regarding the happenings in the life of a person, a situation, an event or a curcumstance, that our spirit cries out “No this cannot be! God is not like this!” When this happens, maybe a worm hole of incredulity has opened up in the high walled garden of God Most High. If so, go through it. Find some statements of the character and intent of God that are contrary to those happenings you are expereincing and then stand on them. Proclaim the Rock’s solid and essential and inchanging nature, say: “You are the faithful God. O Lord, You are holy. Father You are good and gracious, slow to anger and unbundant in steadfast loving kindness! Father you are light and not darkness! God you are good and not evil! You, O God have said, I will never leave you not forsake you, therefore….,” and so on, and so forth. Stand there and watch. Be quiet now and wait. Listen up and look. God will come with an answer.

Where prayer and God are concerned, incredulity is in fact an unexpected and delightful gift, a worm hole opening into the rock garden of the Lord.

Listen:- Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, Luke 18:1NKJV

Pray: -  Father we look for solid ground to stand upon to offer You our prayers. Your Son our Savior is our solid ground, the bright and blood red Rock upon which we stand. Your very name is our solid ground. Your character, Your declarations, Your intent, Your Fatherhood. Upon all of these we stand and pray today. hear us O then our Great God. Amen and let it be so.

Dec | 25 | Habakkuk’s hyperphaigiac hunters

PREPARE

Habakkuk’s hyperphaigiac hunters

Habakkuk 1:8
Their horses also are swifter than leopards, And more fierce than evening wolves. Their chargers charge ahead; Their cavalry comes from afar; They fly as the eagle that hastens to eat. NKJV

There are three things to note then regarding these lion-panther-wolves:

First, that this cavalry is widespread, (Their chargers charge ahead), that is they are all encompassing and proudly pressing on, racing each other to their prey. There is no angle from which they shall not come, there is no place on the compass from which they shall not strike. They are widespread.

Second that they are untiring. Yes indeed, they may have a long distance to travel to come to the cities of Judah, even to the capital Jerusalem, but no matter, they are untiring, un-resting and ever voracious in their all driving and vicious intent. They ‘come on’. They ‘come on’ some more and then they ‘come on’ again. At the end of the round, you may be exhausted and sat on your stool in your corner, gulping in water and being fanned by your second whilst instructed by your coach, but they are still on their feet, skipping around and staring you down, shadow boxing and waiting for the bell to ring again once more. They are as fresh as morning Daisies and as pretty and primed as a Venus Fly Trap.

Thirdly, they are ravenous. They do not come to fight, they come to eat. They come to indulge their excessive and extreme appetite. You see, the battle outcome is not in question here, just the time of dinner.

These mounted bowmen, these spear carrying lancers, were allowed to come upon the covenant nation because the people of God had broken the covenant and now, all the curse their fathers agreed to were about to be beaten around their pitiful self enhancing hearts and their proud , proud heads. There was national sin in Israel and national sin lead to national judgment. We may feel safe in our islands, even in our continent separated from the rest of the world by vast sweeps of water. We may feel safe in our technology, yes, our rockets may form an iron dome above us, our missiles a metal wall before us, and our ICBM’s like a bolero hammer, all trigger ready to crush the heads of any oncoming Numpties foolish enough to try to take us out or take us over. No matter. I say, no matter. For when God, with vengeance in His heart, moves out of a nation’s way, then the great unseen sea wall of protection is removed and swiftly, like a high tided and angry sea, yes, like an all concrete toppling Tsunami, a volcano in the East can devastate and overrun even all the inlands of the West.

We are not Israel. But we are a nation once blessed by God, once under God, once proud to call the LORD our God. Now, we are not Israel. But they are a nation which forgot God and so are we. Look what happened to them.

Fear of judgment has not pushed our nations back toward the Lord. Financial disaster has not pushed our nations back to God. Tower toppling terrorism has not pushed our nation back to God. Disease and the terrible dismemberment of our soldiers, all blown to pieces on foreign battle fields has not pushed our nation back to God. The collapse of all things we counted as precious: marriage; family; babies; has not pushed our nations back to God. Neither has the rise of any social monstrosity pushed us back to God. No, in the sight of all these things, the church of the living God is still singing love songs whilst handing out sick bags to drunks on a Saturday night. Consequently, our nation has not been called back to God and neither has it any inination to be called back. In my dreams, I hear hoof beats. And in the day, I feel the pounding of the ground. Judgment is coming. Are you ready?

In my dreams, I hear hoof beats. And in the day, I feel the pounding of the ground. Judgment is coming. Are you ready?

Listen:- The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young. And they shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land, until you are destroyed; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you. Deuteronomy 28:49-51 NKJV

Dec | 24 | Habakkuk’s Haboob and how to keep the evening wolves at bay

CARE

Habakkuk’s Haboob and how to keep the evening wolves at bay

Habakkuk 1:8-10
Their horses also are swifter than leopards, And more fierce than evening wolves. Their chargers charge ahead; Their cavalry comes from afar; They fly as the eagle that hastens to eat. "They all come for violence; Their faces are set like the east wind. They gather captives like sand. They scoff at kings, And princes are scorned by them. They deride every stronghold, For they heap up earthen mounds and seize it. NKJV

Habakkuk hoped for sounds of revival across the tops of all his mulberry trees of hope, instead, all he hears is the unsheathing of sharp metal. Now, God gives Habakkuk not an unpacked explanation of His doings but a continued revelation of His sovereignty among the nations beginning with a sting paper cutting description of this scything sword of judgment: The Chaldeans, that coming soon, all consuming, totally infiltrating, devastating desert storm. It is as if God now raises a black Haboob in the mind of His prophet and within its falling wall of all enveloping sand, forms animalistic pictures of all consuming horror for him to take a most thorough note of.

http://www.66pictures.com
The first of these is the Leopard, those Lion-Panthers, head heavy with comparatively massive skulls compared to their body size, those Pit bulls of the cat kingdom, those nocturnal stealth machines, which can crunch their way through any beast, eating anything and consuming everything they catch, and with a top speed of up to 57kmph, these light footed leopards, look as though they fly with open jaws upon their unsuspecting prey, suddenly appearing as if out of nowhere. Be sure dear friends, that the devil can also appear in your day ‘as if out of nowhere’. Do not be surprised at his surprise appearing therefore, but rather, be ready!

The snorting transport of the Chaldeans are just as swift as these seeming dimension jumping killing machines, and so, being built for battle, these hungry hunter mounts, are now described as appearing even more ravenous and voracious, more angry and desperately daring, than those hungry evening wolves which are all infuriated by a day of passing hunger. Make no mistake about it, the evening wolves in their fantastic fury will so devour you, that in the morning, not even a bone shall be left.(Zephaniah 3:3) One of the reasons Night Whispers exists, is to warn you dear reader about the terror of these evening wolves. At evening, the devil is prepared more than ever to come and take you and rip you apart. Therefore allow me today to warn you of the same.

http://www.66pictures.comThe coming of night for the fighting Christian is a time of comparative weakness. The spent day has consumed all our resistive resources. The devil has been defeated, victory has adorned our way, our shield has been held high, our sword has been quick to slay, but now the day departs and darkness draweth nigh, and it is time for the renewal of food and rest, yes, it is time to retreat to our own city, to the fold of the Great Shepherd and the sleep of the just. This way, this time, this quiet walk back the true home of our hearts, is punctuated by the howl of the evening wolves. Regret; Self deceiving; Self deserving; Self loathing;  Loneliness; Unwarranted dread; Worry; Care; Doubt; Disappointment; Betrayal; Anger; False teaching; Oppression; Possession, Legion and Lying words; are all just a few names of the salivating monsters howling among this large devil’s evening wolf pack, and be sure of this, that at the end of your victorious day, they are following you into the sheep fold, ever ready to consume you. Be prepared to protect yourself.

http://www.66pictures.comIn the evening, we still protect oursleves, by letting the memory of the sacrifice of Christ be upon us in the evening hours. So then, let His bread be in our mouth and His sweet wine upon our lips. Let the word of Christ dwell in us richly, and let the song of His praise be on our lips, the cup of thankfulness in our left hand and the sword of the Spirit in our right. God is good. Let us declare it: “God is good!” And during our sleeping hours He is awake and works on our behalf to bring  goodness to our feet in the dawn of the morning. So shall we, despite the outer howling, lay ourselves down to peace sleep and dwell in His most particular safety.

When the night time Haboob covers the good works of our day, let us watch out for the evening wolves that inhabit the way to our nightly rest. For you Christian, there is no greater time of danger than the evening of the well fought day. Let this Psalm of David be on your lips tonight:

Listen:- O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me. NKJV

Pray: -  Oh my God, hear me when I whisper to you this evening. O God of my righteousness: you have made space for me today when I have been in distress. In defeat you have been gracious and in victory I have praised you. Now, as the evening shadows lengthen, have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. LORD you have set apart the godly for yourself and so You will hear when I call to You. I am still standing in awe. I am wholly in You, indeed, I am holy in You. My heart is still and I testify to myself and to heaven, that I trust in You. Be good to me this evening then, and in the darkness, let the night-light of Your gracious countenance be around me heart and mind. According to You will, the morning comes for me great God, and with it, the strengthening of Your breath, all clothed in Your goodness. So, tonight I shall rest as Your tomorrow shall be prepared for me, yet another victorious day to know You. Amen and let it be so.

Dec-23-An Haiku of national decapitation

FEAR

An Haiku of national decapitation

Habakkuk 1:7
They are terrible and dreadful; Their judgment and their dignity proceed from themselves. NKJV

So today, God now begins His five verse description of His sword of national judgment.

Here is a nation who measures themselves by themselves. Here is a nation whose standards and laws proceed from their own pragmatic and self serving decisions. True justice and right judgment, however, come only from the law of the Lord.

http://www.66pictures.comThe continuing eradication of the Ten Commandments presence from any culture will ultimately lead to the utter selfishness of an all consuming hedonistic and homosexual madness, (Genesis 18:19,20). I say ultimately, because there are many stages to this self consuming cancer. So, for now, in the case of the Chaldeans, such national self judgment has led to dignity of self elevation that can only be measured by a few millimeters, you know, just like you would see the rising of a puss bound scab standing raised adn craggy just above the skin of an infected pauper, even a poor and pitiful, diseased ridden leper. So is the self made dignity of any nation which has rejected the law of the Lord and whose judgment and justice now proceed totally from themselves. Such a leprous legion may have their bright flag unfurled and all a fluttering; yes, their chest may be puffed out and be decked full of rainbow colored medals, but God calls such a nations self made dignity leprous, scabby, disgusting and unclean in His sight.

The rejection of God’s laws always eventually leads to cultural pragmatism that screams through the streets of time like a doped up druggy on an overdose of ‘speed’. Such are such unholy nations who make their laws up as they go along to justify and further enable their own self consuming ways. When such a nation marches forth to war, they are fearfully frightful, yes, they cause the observer, the source of their current consuming, to cringe and hide in heart collapsing fear. Why is this? Because nations which make up their own laws, can justify genocide and murder millions to achieve their ends. Such nations can put a brutal boot up anyone’s ass to move them along, kick them out of the way and grind them into the ground.

The last 100 years of European history has not seen the coming and going of many wars, even two world wars, but rather, has experienced the nation consuming ravages of many battles in but one major war: the war to in any and in every way , eventually overturn the law of God and even eradicate it from the earth to make way from one human world government and one ultimate anti-God ruler. Now, even today, the nations of the world are thoroughly rejecting the law of the Lord and make no mistake about it, those of us who carry it in our hearts and live it in our lives, will be silenced by them, shut up, eradicated. Nations without God, show no grace or mercy toward those who know the Lord and His law.

http://www.66pictures.com
Look America, piece by piece, from education, legislation, politic and public place, your Judeo-Christian foundation stones are being now most hastily removed.

Look Great Britain, your empire and Nation is left to you foundationless and desolate.

Look Europe
, the past pride of your nations are being ground into a powder keg of mixed populations whilst all your skylines are full of banks and minarets and the aroma of the late evening air is full of foreboding even while the pilfering politicians all talk of peace and bathe in plenty.

"A sharp crescent sword waits to take the selfish head and shout God is great"

Listen:- The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten; The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever. Psalms 9:17-18 NKJV

Pray: -  “Restore us, O God of our salvation, and cause Your anger toward us to cease. Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations? Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us Your mercy, Lord, and grant us Your salvation. I will hear what God the Lord will speak, f or He will speak peace to His people and to His saints; But let them not turn back to folly. Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land. (Psalms 85:4-9)

Dec-22-Terms of lease

CHANGE

Terms of lease

Habakkuk 1:6
For indeed I am raising up the Chaldeans, A bitter and hasty nation Which marches through the breadth of the earth, To possess dwelling places that are not theirs. NKJV

http://www.66pictures.comThe people of this planet have been involved in warring with one another ever since Cain killed Able. Since time immemorial we have had: Envy Wars; Hate Wars; Succession Wars; Civil Wars; Independence Wars; Ethnic Cleansing Wars; Religious Wars; Political Wars; Guerilla Wars and Terrorist Wars and Resource Wars; and no doubt, you could add a few more to my list. In the coming years, we shall no doubt see more of the same of these types of war appear across the globe, however, I suspect it will be the terrible trio of the political war, the religious war and especially the resource war which will kill the most people. Indeed, as the world’s population increases, together with the demand for its dwindling resources then it is the resource war which shall initially make demands of the acquisition of those lands, under long and historical dispute over ownership, and further, under various pretense, might even arrange and opportunity for invasion and the possession that ‘which is not theirs’. Now then, is such ‘stealing’ sin?

“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,” and thus far He has only officially portioned one small segment of this fullness of geography and associated resources to the people of Israel. If then resource theft is sin, then stealing from God is plain stupidity for ‘the strong man armed, always keeps his goods in peace’. The nations must leave Israel and her resources alone, lest we find that it is God almighty that turns around and lays hold of our pick-pocket dipping wrist. Only trouble can follow such an Almighty apprehension.

http://www.66pictures.comThe coming further resource wars involve the forced acquisition of dwelling places belonging to another, and consequently, legally speaking, together with its resource content, all the earth space surrounding such stolen dwelling places, whether these resources be below them under the ground, even right down to the very centre of the earth, and then even the air space above them. Such ‘theft invasion’, to various degrees, not only dispossess the original owners but disperses them or subjugates them, or eventually, absorbs or eradicates them.

“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.”  Therefore, all devil run democracies, (oh wake up now!) and all other political, social, economic and cultural entities, exist and promulgate themselves on a planet which does not belong to them. Therefore, the possession of any land mass with all its associate resources are all, ultimately, held leasehold and therefore temporarily, at the discretion of the one true landlord, that is, the Lord God Almighty!

“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,” so listen up now. Throughout time, though the devil has had his Kingdom’s overlaying the surface of this spinning orb, ‘the earth is STILL the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.’ Do you see that? The kingdoms of this world may belong to the devil, but all the substance and solid nature of planet earth belongs to God, and so does, the disposing of the same. “I am raising up the Chaldeans, ….to possess dwelling places that are not theirs.” In other words, God is rightly leasing to them, this oh so nasty nation, both place and property which is not theirs. God and God alone has the right to do this and when He does, the transaction and transfer is unstoppable.

http://www.66pictures.comThe safety of any physical dwelling place therefore is at the behest of God, not stealth delivery weapons, or arms both nuclear and nasty. The disposal of other people’s dwelling places into our lap is also at the behest of God and when this happens, it might just involve another war, a God war. The possession of the promised land was a ‘God War’, and resulted in the unstoppable total transfer of land property and all possession of the same. So let us ask ourselves, outside of that particular time and incident, has there been any other ‘God War’? The answer of course is yes. Look now, “I am raising up the Chaldeans, ….to possess dwelling places that are not theirs.” Think about this: When a renter ‘reallocates’ an owners resources it is theft. When the owner reallocates his resources, then it is his both his desire and right. “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.”

How can we discern between the wicked actions of the devils burglars stealing resources which are not theirs and the ‘legal’ actions of God’s bailiffs? Especially, how can we know when a ‘God War’ is being pursued against us? Well, remember, when a landlord’s property is being destroyed, when a landlord’s place is being utilized for actions contrary to the owners original declared intent, yes, when the owners name is being brought into open disrepute and when proper payment and right honor is long overdue, then we should not be surprised when a removals van pulls up outside our house and some burly men start banging on our door. Should our nations expect a visit from God’s bailiffs?

Habakkuk is later going to see the rightness of this kind of ‘God War’ eviction. However, Habakkuk is also going to have big problems with God’s bailiffs, the Chaldeans. Yes, Habakkuk shall have problems in understanding the kind of ‘eviction people’ that God uses to reclaim His property. We shall look at this later, but for tonight, know that although God uses some brutal bailiffs to evict His bad tenants, once the task is completed, the bad bailiffs themselves will also be dealt with. There is nothing nice about God’s redistribution of resource.

Tonight then, know three things:

  1.  “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.” He distributes it as He pleases.
  2. The safety of any dwelling place and its continuance is at the behest of the owner. Only God can make us dwell in the safety of possession, provision and peace. 
  3. God is in the eviction game even today. 


Tell me now then: “Have our nations been served and eviction notice?”


Listen:- The earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah Psalms 24:1-6 NKJV

Pray: -  Sovereign Father, when our nations lay under You, God most high, then we can truly lay ourselves down and sleep in peace, dwelling in Your gracious safety. But You Lord are known by the judgment You execute and the wicked shall indeed be snared in the work of his own hands and turned into hell. So shall all the nations that forget God. Remember Lord please, that in the nations of the willful sinful, there are still those few who have not forgotten You O God. Have mercy then O Lord, and turn us once again to You. Amen and let it be so.

Dec | 20 | The Borg of the Lord

CHANGE

The Borg of the Lord

Habakkuk 1:6
For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs. KJV

There now follows five verses describing the sword of God’s judgment, the Chaldeans. They are bitter and hasty, terrible and dreadful, filled with unrelenting violence and overflowing with scoffing derision, they are hungry devourers and merciless enslavers, all fuelled by a such a self love, that regarding every obstacle, they simply ‘adapt and overcome.’ To such an all consuming, hungry and carnivorous swarm, any national resistance was futile. Now then, I have purposely quoted Habakkuk 1:6 from the KJV tonight, as the opening statement is more pronounced in this translation. “LOOK!” Say’s God, “Lo, I raise up the Chaldeans.”

Here then, God shall use a godless and unrighteousness nation to judge His wayward covenanting people. Indeed, God Himself has raised up and shaped this sharp threshing sledge for such a time as this. Mark well then today, that on planet earth, behind all the black gates of Mordor, it is not Sauron now who is building an army of Orcs beneath Mount doom, no, it is God! “Lo, I raise up the Chaldeans.”

http://www.66pictures.comHow then can we know when it is darkness and the devil and an infestation of the demonic which raises up a wicked nation against us and even a confederation of nations to come against the righteous light seekers, the holy light holders and the freedom from sin proclaimers? I say again: how can we know when the originator of destruction is God or the devil? Well, there is an easy answer to this question. When a nation is indeed a seeker of light and a holder of righteousness and a proclaimer of the same, then God will never come against it. Ever! Any adversity against such a nation finds its sources solely in the devil. However, when a nation sniffs at holiness, when a nation snuffs out righteousness and when a nation calls bad good and darkness light, then I tell you, it is God who is driving calamity like a stampeding herd of ten thousand rampaging cattle, right down the main streets of every city of that now light rejecting nation. Resistance is futile. “Lo, I raise up the Chaldeans.”

 Look around you now Christian, look at the movement of nations. Look around you now, look at the rise and fall of walls, look at the opening and closing of gates, look at the spread of the dark eagle’s wings! Behind which black gate on earth, is God now raising up a new locust swarm of nation consuming judgment?

Be sure of this: God is at work among the nations and some of them, He is sharpening as a sword of judgment against those other 'dimmer switch' nations who have so shamelessly rejected His light and, like a used cigarette butt, has screw healed His grace into the baby-blood leached ground.

Listen:-  For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs. Habakkuk 1:6 KJV

Pray: -  Sovereign Lord, God over all, who should not be in awe of You? Merciful and patient, loving and gracious, creator of time and all the built spaces for repentance therein, the wind now carries to us the sound of the sharpening of Your sword of judgment. In Your wrath, remember mercy, and look upon the quick ignorance of we ‘forgetors of God’ we ‘forsakers of grace’ and soften our hearts that we might receive Your correction and be saved. Amen and let it be so.

Dec | 19 | Do not cower to perverted power

ACTION

Do not cower to perverted power

Habakkuk 1:4
Therefore the law is powerless, And justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore perverse judgment proceeds. NKJV

http://www.66pictures.comSo here in Habakkuk, the strangling and setting aside of God’s law has not, I say, has not removed the nation's legal system. It has simply replaced it and replaced it with perverted laws, leading to a body of replacement legislation which is essentially there to shore up that society of God rejection, which is now become the solar system of the selfishness of the current elite, whoever they may be, in whatever political framework they manifest themselves in, from communism to fascism and every shade in between and beyond. When God’s law is rejected perverse judgments proceed. The removal of a death penalty for capital crimes; the legalization of murder in the form of abortion; the legalization of gay marriage and a thousand more besides, are all perversions, bent arrows full of self cursing which will always miss God’s mark. Christians cannot obey such legal perversion in any form and must stop cowering to such perverted power. In such cases of continued perversion, civil obedience simply becomes public affirmation of continuing sin. Tell me, how can Christians give such an approval to perversion?

http://www.66pictures.com
In the face of such perversion, I am not only approving of civil disobedience, I am commending it and recommending it. The Christian cowering to present perverted power must stop. Using all Biblically legitimate means, as individuals, we must personally stand against the going forth of godlessness even if our neck becomes hurt with the turning, our cheeks red with the slapping, yes, even when our feet pulse with the pain of yet another extra mile and our coatless back is wet with the cold dew of another morning without a roof.


Now then, when we then unite and organize ‘illegal’ civil disobedience, reminding ourselves that in standing against perversion we shall break their godless laws, I say their laws and not God’s laws, then such a so-called ‘illegal’ unity of resistance becomes a threat to present perversion and shall be attacked by them and in the attacking, their opening slander may eventually lead even to our slaughter. So let me cut to the chase: Should the Christian then be prepared for armed conflict?  

http://www.66pictures.comThere is only one arm that the Christian can Biblically introduce into such situations and that is ‘the arm of the Lord’ and the ‘arm of the Lord’ is none other than Jesus Himself. Jesus is the extension of God into all of our troubles and He is become our only shield and sword, and this outstretched arm of God in the flesh, shall truly save us from the slavery of all perversions. So, in our so called  ‘illegal’ civil disobedience, we must trust Jesus to save us and fight for us. Be aware right now, that to introduce any other arms of flesh into such a sad situation will lead to destruction, and you shall have on your hands: anything from what shall be regarded by the perverts, as guerilla-terrorist cells to even civil war. 9mm, you see, may be just enough in distance travelled to turn a nation to civil war. Be careful now. Be careful.

Governments must realize that legal authority does necessarily correlate with righteous rule and the continued rulings of blind unrighteousness will  lead to eventual unruliness in a disenfranchised people. As a parent of society then, elected or otherwise, Governments must not provoke their children to wrath.

Here in Habakkuk, God is now rolling up His sleeves and baring His arms, for God’s answer to the perversion of His holy law in Israel is the Babylonians. Here they come now!

As for you dear reader, look around you now. What might be God’s answer in your own nation of perversion?

Listen:- If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. Therefore "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:18-21 NKJV

Pray: - Father, we shall be subject to governing authority, but not sin and not to unrighteousness and not to evil. When we find ourselves in such unhappy tension, teach us to pray and then will You come and take vengeance upon our hateful enemies. Amen and let it be so.

Dec | 17 | Eagles eerie and the ‘Habakkuk Hatch’

FIGHT

Eagles eerie and the ‘Habakkuk Hatch’

Habakkuk 1:4
Therefore the law is powerless, And justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore perverse judgment proceeds. NKJV

I used to live in Chingford Hatch, a ‘Hatch,’ being an old English word to describe a clear and open place of passing, in a densely wooded area.

http://www.66pictures.comThe law of God is holy and just and good, but unless it is honored, obeyed and enacted, it is impotent, yes, unless the law becomes the main ingredient in the mix of society, it simply becomes an impotent bystander in the affairs of men and is become irrelevant. Such is the law of God at the beginning to the 21st century.

In the West and in the USA in particular, great has been the wailing at the removal of those tablets of stone containing those ten wonderful words. The real truth, however, is that those ten commands which once undergirded the constitution, written and otherwise of former Christian nations of the world, have, by wicked men and women, long since been ‘salami sliced’ out of all forms of earthly justice. So much so, that the law of God has been made so ineffective and powerless that its child of justice has had its legs publicly amputated at the hip, and cruelly severed at the thigh.

Our lands and are immediate futures are now being shaped by manmade laws, and rotted by the cultural expedients of all things sinfully human, o ‘absolute, truth and judgment’ and forcing them from the high lands of love, to go and pollute themselves in all the lowlands of leprosy.

f all things anti-God and all things anti-Christ. The claws of incorrectness are now the midnight gouging we hear outside the doors of the last bastions of God laws, and the weeping, well, the weeping is |the ancient ghost of ’Lot,’ that old spirit of compromise and convenience, which has been conjured up among us in the church by them that know not God; those money grabbing, horn rimmed hipsters and cool touters of old heresies, who for so long took that spirit of Lot, and masqueraded him as ‘love’ and ‘live and let live’, whilst at the same time, turning out those three sentinels of sanity:

We make the law effectively powerful once more, yes, we turn the law of God into the leaven of a society gone bad and raise it back to its once so healthy height, by again living by the law of God! 

  • Can we do this where we live? It will be virtually impossible. 
  • Can we go somewhere else to do this? No. For there are no new lands left upon this globe to run to anymore, as there are no vacant hills for the building of a new Jerusalem here on earth. 
  • So then, I propose we have but three options.
The first, is to by all legal and legitimate means, boldly proclaim and brazenly practice that which the Word of God teaches. So, where we can, within our own systems of political allowability, let us with all sincerity, be the people of God and by the grace of God, seek to recover the hearts, minds and practices of societies gone so Biblically wrong. For this to happen, the pulpits and all the institutional platforms of proclamation must be bought back (there will be a great price to pay here), then the wells need to be cleared out, and their mouths opened up once more to become the silver tongued springs of solid Biblical declaration.

Where peaceful and present legitimate means become impossible, yes, where freedom of speech and exclusion from the market place of politics, education and religion become the nasty norm, then our second option is to resist, it is to revolt! It is to partition the land, it is to draw the battle lines, it is to engage in division. Two thousand years of church history has shown that for the Christian, such resistance toward division is ever a personal choice and it is usually a choice forced upon them by bloody persecution. The measure of such resistance to division and its success, will be dictated by quantity of men, money, munitions, in all its varied forms, that are available. Are we ready for such a revolution? Do we have all that we can to so succeed? Should we as Christians even try this?

The third option we have is the ‘Habakkuk Hatch:’ that is, we need to see what’s coming, we need to see the walk of Birnim wood and then wait for the clearing to appear, the space, the place of Habakkuks hatch, and there get on our knees and watch and pray. For if what is about to come upon our nation is the direct judgment of God upon a hard necked people who have made His revealed and holy law so socially impotent, then all resistance is futile! That yardstick of the laid aside law will now so frighteningly become the terrible measurement of the depth of judgment about to over flow us.

As I write, three options are still before us, only just maybe, but there are still these three. Should we ever move to option two of ‘resistance to division,’ then God will have to somehow disarm the powerful godless governments which will come against us. Without this happening, the slaughter which will follow, will make the Huguenot horror look like a picnic.

Therefore, it seems to me, that option three is maybe the only option we shall see. Let us then take our nimble feet to the high places of observation and in faith, through the coming desolation, in that space of grace provided for us amongst the war like trees, see the sword of the wicked eventually turned upon themselves. Now then, should this ever not happen, then please be assured of this: that the great and on- going gathering of 'the wood wicked' is simply fuel for the fire and tables for the purpose of abattoirial slaughter. And there will be blood: their blood, and rivers of it.

Those two tablets of the present powerless laws of God, their fleshless and unspeaking jaws lying bleached white in the sand above this godless sky, shall soon be taken up by the coming Samson-Jesus, who, with uncut hair and rampant eye, shall smite them dead with hip and thigh.

I am living in Habakkuk’s Hatch. I will not cower to godless power. Which of these three options will you be choosing today?

Listen:- Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him." Jude 14-15 NKJV

Pray: -  Lord, we have no power to resist. If we had, then so we would and so we should. But Lord, this host is in Your hand! So, have mercy upon us Your people and help us stand in the Hatch, in the space between the weeping, and proclaim Your present judgment and that only safety that is in the spear pierced side of Your Son Jesus. Take us to Your eagle’s eerie Lord today, and shelter us in Etam, even in the cleft of the rock. Amen and let it be so.
