2 Stay Alert . . . He Is Coming!

"For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night."
 (1 Thessalonians 5:2)

The watchman's duty
In Ezekiel 33:2-6, the Lord spoke to Ezekiel... "Son of man, speak to the sons of your people, and say to them, 'If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman; and he sees the sword coming upon the land, and he blows on the trumpet and warns the people, then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head." He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman's hand."
There are many Ezekiels today! There are many watchmen appointed by God to warn the people. All the watchman can do is warn. Whether or not to take heed to the warning is up to each individual heart.

Earthquakes to hit the Midwest
On the evening of February 18th, 1990, I received the following message:
"The Midwest shall be hit with terrible earthquakes within next few days. Prepare, for I warn you ahead of time. My warning shall be strong and awaken the hearts of My children. Seek comfort and safety in the palms of your Almighty God. Your loving Lord speaks to you. You shall hear of strong tremors flowing through the Mississippi. When this happens, prepare yourself ahead of time for total destruction. My hand shall uphold you in My right hand. Your loving Lord speaks." (God is not limited to time as we are. Therefore, a few days could mean a few years, months, a short time, etc. See Job 14:1, "is of a few days." It refers to short-lived, or but a short time.)

The ground did begin to shake in the Missouri area shortly after this, but no major earthquake occurred (I believe because there was prayer). And although there was no date given as to when it was to occur, there was a sign given whereby we would be warned of it ahead of time: "...When you hear of strong tremors flowing through the Mississippi..." Because I also believe this message was just delayed, this is what I will keep my ears opened for.
I did send this particular newsletter to a few Seismologists in the Midwest. Since then, I have also heard more and more on the concern Seismologists to this day are having on the Midwest and along the Mississippi, and they are keeping a close eye on this area! This was a good example of how a message makes no sense at the time I receive it, but much is learned at a later date. I also happen to know that some people went out to buy earthquake insurance when they read this message from an earlier newsletter, and were later disappointed because nothing happened. Earthquake insurance is quite cheap in the Midwest, and I encourage you to hang onto that insurance coverage (or get it if you don't have it)! For in the near future you will be seeing earthquakes in areas where they're "not suppose" to happen. The Midwest is just one area where this is occurring.
In the Old Testament, God warned Pharaoh in a dream (that Joseph interpreted) of the seven-year drought that was to come upon the land of Egypt and told him how to prepare for it. (Genesis 41) Maybe God is warning us in the same way here. For immediately before I received this message, I was told to stock up on food and water for a few days. I can't tell you exactly what God meant by "a few days," as I mentioned above. All I know is that I have water and canned goods sitting in my closet. I am urging all churches and families in this area to prepare ahead of time and do the same, and to have extra to share with others---just in case!
Although I strongly feel this message talks of an actual earthquake, it is also interesting to note that I have heard the word 'earthquake' used as a general term to indicate 'a shake up' of some sort. (For instance, "The Economic Earthquake," which is a book that talks of a possible economic collapse in the future.) I know that there has been much flooding in the Midwest area recently, and storms seem to get worse every year.
No matter the circumstances, NOW is always the time to hand your hearts and your families over to the Lord for His safe keeping and guidance. Be sure to always look to God, not man, for all of your needs to be met (but also know that God many times uses people to help answer prayer). Know that God is calling for all to acknowledge Him as the one and only true God that still controls all things today and forever. His heart's desire is for you to get to know Him as one who cares and will reveal Himself well to those who ask. Also know that when God sets out to open the eyes of the people, He will do so in ways that are unexplainable and baffling to mere man's understanding. The main thing is to be sure to keep your eyes and heart on God and what He says in His Word!

Getting under the protection of God
God still warns today of His wrath to come, but provides His protection and guidance to those who choose to walk each day under the protective blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. On Passover, the night God led His people out of Egypt, He told all that believed and trusted in Him to spread the blood of an unblemished lamb on the outside of their door so that His wrath against Egypt would pass over them and not harm them. That blood represented the blood Jesus Christ shed on the cross for us, and it is to Jesus Christ we are to go to receive this same protection today. Likewise, while God led His people out of Egypt, He provided a cloud by day and a fire by night to guide them. He provides the same guidance to us through the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling on the earth and in God's people today.
In John 14:16-17, Jesus explains the role of the Spirit to His disciples: "And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you, and will be in you."
When you personally receive Jesus into your heart as your Savior (because you know that Jesus died for your sins) and receive His Spirit inside you, this is where you receive a revelation of Jesus Christ. ("Revelation" means, "an uncovering of something hidden.") The Holy Spirit is the only One that can reveal Jesus to you, for He is "the Spirit of truth." However, "to be led of God's Spirit" requires a daily walk with God and reading His Word. It goes beyond just saying a one time prayer, but requires total surrender to God. It requires a "relationship" with God! "For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God." (Romans 8:14)
When you receive Jesus into your heart and receive His Spirit within you, this is when you also become a member of God's Kingdom. You've walked through "the Narrow Door," Jesus Christ, and you now belong to the family of God! God's Spirit (God's mark of ownership) now lives (or dwells) in you! You've also now become a member of "The Church"---the true Church of Jesus Christ!
The word "church" is used very carelessly today. Much emphasis is placed on "church attendance and membership" of a local church, instead of belonging to Jesus Christ who is the Head of the Church! The definition of "CHURCH" in the Bible index is, "THE CALLED OUT ONES!" A "church building" is only a place for God's children to gather and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. On the other hand, "The Church" includes everyone that has received Jesus Christ into their hearts and are filled with the Holy Spirit, God's only mark of ownership over you! They've been "CALLED OUT!"---And its members are all around the world!
It's important that you realize that you can be a member of a local church and not belong to God's Kingdom. Likewise, you can belong to God's Kingdom and not be a member of a local church. Church attendance or membership does not save you! Nothing and no one saves you but Jesus Christ and what He did for all sinners on the cross! Only by you going to the cross and personally asking Jesus into your own heart and earnestly seeking Him will you find true salvation and receive the Spirit God provides to all who ask! Don't let the comfort of church attendance or church membership fool you. It's Jesus, not the building, that saves! Please make sure you are a member of "The Real Church" by making a personal decision to receive Jesus Christ into your own heart. Make sure you are a member of "The Blood Bought Church of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ!" Then go to the "church building" God calls you to and worship Him with all your heart.

Stay alert and be prepared!
Much being heard is proclaiming God's concern for His people to stay alert and be prepared! To not only ask Jesus into your life as your Savior (receive eternal life), but to continue that walk with the Lord each day so that He may guide you (to make Jesus Lord of your life, as well). Now is the time to ask yourself if YOU have stopped and taken the time to personally ask Jesus Christ into your heart!
Below are messages that reveal the importance of staying alert and knowing the times in which you are living. Let God work with your heart and ask Him to reveal His truth to you, as you read these messages.

February 11, 1990
"The time has come to alert every heart. My plan has come to a close. Reach out with all your prayers to deliver a people to Me, your God. Never shall you see God's grace flow upon the earth as you shall in these next few days (or a short time).
My warning comes to those who have not received My love---given Me their all! My Lordship shall rule once again upon an earth that has lost all control and all My love from within their hearts. Say this to My people: "Walk into My light and truth I speak. Watch the signs that shall soon approach all. For My warning comes ahead of time to call on many, many hearts. Your loving Lord speaks." (Matthew 22:7-14)
My people have not accepted My ways nor My Father's will in their lives and hearts. Speak My truth and uphold to the promises laid upon a holy people. Acknowledge who it is you belong to and be prepared. Let not your heart fall asleep, but be alert, for I come to collect a holy people that know Me, your God.
A prostitute and a murderer shall make it into the Kingdom before many of you, for they at least know they need something. Their hearts shall be ready to accept My truth and coming. Don't say no to your salvation, but keep your eyes and heart on Me. Beware of all deceit and keep your eyes on Me, your God!"

The Rapture and Christ's Second Coming!
God's Word speaks of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, where Jesus comes back to rule and reign and set up God's Kingdom here on earth. God's Word also speaks of a "catching up" of His Church, where Jesus comes for those who have given their hearts to Him. This event is referred to as "the rapture." Although the actual word "rapture" is not in the Scriptures, it is in the Bible index. It is interestingly defined as, "the translation of saved at Christ's return," and refers to I Corinthians 15:51-52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 (as seen below). (The word "translation" in the Bible index means, "physical transportation to heaven.")
There are many different views on this matter. And while many believe they will escape hard times because God will take them out of here before the tribulation period, others are being warned to prepare for tough times ahead! So, one day I asked God, "How many raptures do you have?" He surprised me by responding very quickly, "How many Churches do I have?" Knowing, of course, that God only has one Church, I knew His answer was "I only have one rapture." I then asked God to show me where this was in His Word, and He immediately led me to 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17: (16) "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. (17) Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord." (What was just as interesting was the caption right before these Scriptures, which said, "The Church: Its Future!" )
In the following Scriptures, here's what else Paul had to say about this event: In 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, he said, "Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep (or die), but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we (the living) shall be changed." In 1 Thessalonians 4:15, he also said, "...that we who are alive and remain UNTIL the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep (or died)." And in 1 Corinthians 15:23, where Paul talks about the "order of resurrection," he said, "...Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ's at His coming." (Although Paul refers here to "dead believers" (you must die before you can be resurrected), you can't separate it from rapture because it's stated above that the dead are raised first!)
In these Scriptures, Paul makes the following points in regards to this event: 1) All believers (the Church - the dead and the living) shall be changed; 2) The dead in Christ shall rise first (be resurrected); 3) The living believers shall not go up (be raptured) before the dead; 4) This special event takes place in the clouds; and 5) It happens "at Christ's return," or "until His coming!" (I also had a better understanding of "who" rapture refers to when I looked it up in The New AnalyticaL Bible (King James Version, copyright 1950) and found in the index the following: "Translation, Of living believers, 1 Thessalonians 4:17" (as used above).)
Some believe the rapture and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ are two separate events, where rapture happens before the tribulation period and the Second Coming at the end of it. But when you see "Jesus' return" as Jesus coming back only one time for the whole Church (the Old Testament Saints were raised with Jesus in Matthew 27:52-53), and the term "rapture" as used only to explain what happens to living believers when He does return, you see a different picture. Remember, the Church includes all hearts that belong to Jesus Christ (the dead and living believers)! And although the Church Age began at Pentecost (which happened after Jesus went up in the clouds), it doesn't end until He comes back to earth the same way He left---in the clouds! (See Acts 1:9-11)
Likewise, when you compare the above Scriptures on rapture to what Jesus said in Matthew 24:29-31 below, when talking about "His Glorious Return," you can see they're very similar: "But immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken, and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect (the saved - His Church) from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other." (These Scriptures are in "RED," meaning Jesus spoke them Himself. Also, notice how this takes place "immediately after the tribulation of those days," and again, how similar they are to the above Scriptures referring to rapture!")
In addition to this, if the Church were not going to be around for (at least some of) the tribulation period, Jesus would not have taken the time to warn His Church to stay alert and be prayed-up "for the tribulation of those days." In Luke 21:34-36, He said: "Be on guard, that your hearts may not be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day come on you suddenly like a trap; for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. But keep on the alert at all times, praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." (Note that it says "in order that you may have strength to escape" all these things, not "in order that you may escape! "Escape," as used in these Scriptures, means "to flee from spiritual destruction" (See Bible index under "escape.") To read more about "ESCAPE" in Chapter 11, CLICK HERE.
Both Matthew 24 and Luke 21 above talk about "Signs of Christ's Return." Notice that they show the Church being present during this time, and that it involves ALL who dwell upon ALL the earth!" The warnings in these chapters should be read very carefully, for again, they are warnings to the Church to keep watch and prepare for the coming of the Lord! (Also, take special note of the following words at the beginning of each verse while reading these two chapters (and all the chapters in the Bible): And, for, but, then, therefore, if, etc.)
God has put in on my heart to warn others to prepare for hard and testing times ahead! My concern is not so much whether you believe in a pre, mid, or post-trib rapture (or no rapture at all), but rather this: That you get serious with God, get spiritually prepared for whatever you may have to go through, and that you go to the Bible and see for yourself what it says! For, God told me that Satan is deceiving many who believe in an early escape by not preparing! And God wants all to take note of what Paul spoke to the Church, and that what he said still stands as truth for the Church today! Though all believers would prefer an early escape, and although there may be some Scriptures that may indicate one...you cannot ignore what Paul said to the Church! Likewise, you also cannot ignore what Jesus spoke in Matthew and Luke above, as He warns the Church to be alert and prepared "for the tribulation of those days!"
Know that God has not destined us for wrath. However, it is very important that you are prepared to "endure to the end of the Church Age!" I suggest you read Matthew 25:1-13, where Jesus tells the parable of the ten virgins. Then as you continue to read the messages below, keep in mind Matthew 24:13-14: "But the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved. And this Gospel of the Kingdom (salvation through Jesus Christ) shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end (end of the Church Age; salvation; the period of grace) shall come." (See Bible index under "End of the World: Day of salvation ended." )

January 12, 1990
"I come for My people---but not so as many say! I shall appear as I left! The clouds of heaven shall open and I shall again descend upon the earth to collect My elect (the saved). I've told you the angels now hold my directions. My time is near! They stand on the four corners of the earth and wait for the first trumpet to be sounded. (See Revelation 8:7) Perilous times lie ahead! Though I come to deliver My people, not until they shall see much torment stand around them. No rapture, as you have heard it, shall arise in this way. Only My ways I understand. However, you, My children, have been given the signs of My coming. Reach out with earnest love to save others. Do not be so hasty to only save yourself."

Two More Messages on the Rapture
Below are two messages received in 1988 and 1989 concerning the rapture...

Received in 1988:
"Right before rapture, some Oriental army (China and/or Japan) will arise and be noticed, and worldwide upheaval will be first felt. Churches will be filled and a mighty revival will start around here." (Note: When I received this message, I was in the lunch room at work. I was not sure what the Lord meant by "Oriental." It was then that He told me to look up. Just then, a lady stepped around the corner. She happened to be Oriental and looked like she was either from China or Japan. This is why I wrote down "China and/or Japan" above. I did not know at this time about the army from the east---which is the SIXTH TRUMPET! (See Revelation 9:13-21. Also note that the seventh (last) trumpet brings in the "bowls of wrath.")

Received in 1989:
"Russia shall conquer and control Middle East Countries. Strength shall grow. You shall know the time is at hand when the turmoil reaches you by ear. Prepare, for My children shall be alerted and come forth with My Spirit, the Spirit of your living God. Very soon shall this occur. Listen and watch the turmoil grow." (I believe God is speaking of a "taking out" of His Church: both the Jews and the Gentiles that belong to Jesus! Remember: The Gospel went first to the Jews!)

Be alert of His coming!
One thing we can all be sure of---He is coming! Revelation 1:7 says: "Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. Even so. Amen." 1 Thessalonians 5:2-6 says: "For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, "Peace and safety!" (Beware of those who claim peace when there is none) then destruction will come upon them suddenly like birth pangs upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But you, brethren (the Church), are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober."

Another message on Christ's coming!
Received April 8, 1989
"Behold, I come in Spirit to enlighten the hearts of God's children. Many shall see the greatness of My Father's hand. Time is near where all shall see He still reigns over all today! I come to alert all! Let no one pass by. Warn hearts of My coming, the coming of the Son of Man! Look in the sky and see the darkness. Stars will fall from the sky; the moon shall grow dark. Be alert, for no one knows when this time shall come. The signs are here. Look to the east and to the west. Many shall come running in fear for their lives. Scraps will fall from the sky. God they do not know!"

The Messages Continue

One purpose of this book is to encourage you to seek God, get to know Him, and see for yourself how marvelously He still performs today. Give your hearts and homes to God, and ask Him to reveal to you His truth and the urgency of this time. Spend quiet time with Him in your home! Beware of ALL deceit, prepare your heart, and keep your eyes on God and the great things He can do!

February 25, 1990
"You will see My Spirit flow over the lands, My Holy Spirit. For the living God stands before you. Hear My words to all, for I am coming soon---very soon! Reach all with My words and know what I speak does come from the living God. Many shall be coherent to My warnings and instructions. Many shall prepare for the battle that is at hand---the battle of knowing I am God and all else fails.
You will be seeing much hardships. Food lines will become more prominent in daily life. Businesses will shut down with little notice, and this will happen in the U.S. mostly. My people have lived in their luxuries and have become lost to My ways. Now only My strength and guidance shall see you through to My perfect care and peace.
Watch from the east! Much is going on there. Much of this shall/does affect you in the west. Nothing you see happening now will miss you in affecting your lives, either now or in the near future.
Alaska shall experience a new volcanic eruption and more of the old. Much destruction shall arise from this new volcano. Let this be a sign to you that their time of evacuation is close at hand. Warn them of the dangers when you see this situation arise. (Note: This is the other message on Alaska that I mentioned earlier.)
Colleges from all over shall be disruptive; unable to cope with or stand by and watch today's injustice. Much college campus rioting shall appear, and many shall need to be closed down. Much shall be the result of their teachings and carrying-on.
Every area of life shall be seeing changes: Changes in attitudes toward Me, your God, changes in geographic and scientific atmospheres, and much family situations. Everything that looks bad now shall become even more intolerable. Increases of incest, murder, child abductions, school rapes and others---abuse of all sorts---shall increase drastically in a short period of time!
My call is for you to enter into My presence by coming to Me for your protection and security by acknowledging Me as your Savior and Lord. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God! Know this and come to Me. For I am the only way!
Russia is at end with her plan of salvation. Many shall come My way. You will see a true spiritual battle there between Me and Satan. No one will be able to look away and see it any other way.
The "Hitler" shall arise and become a terror to all. But this shall not last long, but a short time.
Look to Me---just Me! Don't let your worries and fears carry you away, but bring you closer to Me, your Lord, Jesus Christ. Your loving Lord speaks to you."

March 9, 1990
"Many days lie ahead where darkness shall cover the land. Eclipses from the sun shall be their reason for explaining, but God's hands are upon this occurrence. It shall be a sign of the times---of the Coming of Jesus Christ.
Tremors shall arouse people's feelings of insecurity. Many shall leave their beliefs of "religion" and fall beneath the cross for "true salvation." (Colossians 2:16-23)
The big earthquake is coming. It shall upset major cities and have no regular course of action (take no scientific path or make any sense).
God is preparing His place for His children. Mansions are built and the final touches are being added on now. Many extensions/additions have been added on. Prepare for a mighty, mighty revival that shall be seen by all! In Jesus' name."

Mansions in Heaven
I always ask the Lord to confirm the messages He gives to me. Below is a confirmation to the message above. A lady shared with my sister's church this story: One day she was in her home when she began to hear what sounded like heavy pounding outside. She went outside to see what it was, but could not figure it out. She came back in and began to hear the same pounding, only to be louder than before. Again, she went outside and looked up into the sky. What she saw were the heavens opened and saw construction workers building what seemed to be mansions in heaven.
Jesus says, in John 14:4, "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you." God does let us know that His Word is real. What He says in it should be read very carefully (with the guidance of the Holy Spirit), and taken serious so we will be prepared to meet Him whenever that time arrives. Make sure you depend only on Jesus Christ for your salvation, for He is the only Savior the Father sent for you!

March 14, 1990
"Whosoever shall walk with Me shall have life and have it more abundantly, for I am the Arisen Christ! My hands shall flow over My people and My "shepherds" shall hear My voice. Come onto Me, all who are burdened, and I shall give you rest. For My love is alive and lives within you. Your loving Lord speaks." (By "shepherds" the Lord is referring to those He has put in charge to lead His flock, or His people, to Him!)

March 17, 1990
"My time is drawing near. Close the book to the past and move on in faith. My glorious return shall inherit many hearts and homes. Accept the fullness of glory and joy I provide. Seek the things not of this world, but of Me, your living God.
Stand back for a while and watch Me, your God, work. My hand shall touch all homes whom you've reached or tried to reach. My result will soon be seen and heard of. Praise My name, for My name ye shall behold in all hearts soon to come to Me, your God. Your loving Lord speaks to you." (Galatians 3:24)

March 23, 1990
"Lithuania has succumbed (means to give way under pressure). Release My riches unto their hearts and prepare for much victory. You shall behold a God that can do strange and marvelous deeds for His children.
I have heard all prayers. They have reached My throne on high. (The leader of theUSSR) will see I do live today. My hand is upon him. Much anger shall be calm and he will let My people go. (Malachi 3:11-17)
You shall be hearing soon of My words to you. Much is happening that you do not know of. Trust Me and keep going in the faith I shall supply to you. The media shall become flabbergast as to what they shall see. Much doubt shall soon turn into heroic Christendom. My love is upon you. Seek My riches and you shall flourish in My love and joy. your Lord, Jesus Christ."
(Much end-time prophecy speaks of God gathering and bringing the Jews back into Israel before He returns as their Messiah. (To read more about this in a special message in Chapter 4, "The last phase before Christ's return," CLICK HERE.) If you read your newspapers, you see this taking place today. In fact, there are special ministries that fly them back into Israel so they will be there when their Messiah returns.)

March 29, 1990
"Lithuania has turned to seek My face. I am pleased with My children. My hand shall come down hard upon its rulers of deception. You will see a mighty nation fall into the hands of their once-ruled-over nations." (Please note the prior messages concerning Lithuania. Also, note the changes that occurred in the old USSR, where many nations once ruled over by them are now striving for their independence. Also, be aware that you may see the USSR go back to the way it use to be in the near future.)

March 29, 1990
"You shall see My mighty hand upon a troubled and sinful world. Earthquakes shall be great, and soon all hell will break lose literally, trying to uphold their deeds upon a world that needs Me, your God. Your loving Lord speaks to all."

April 9, 1990
"My children, wake up to My calling for you. Never shall you see My glory unless you seek Me at all times. You live in a time where evil exists at its fullest. Know your souls are in constant danger and you need My constant and daily guidance. I call upon My children, the children of God, and I say to put upon yourself the blessings that come from Me, your Lord. Listen and let your hearts grow with My love. Put aside your useless treasures and walk with Me. Your loving Lord." (1 Corinthians 4:15-16)

April 9. 1990
"The mountains shall shake. Earth shall become belligerent to My signs of My coming. You are in the end-times now. Much shall occur where My true signs shall reveal the times in which you live...
The Atlantic shall show much signs of death and deterioration...
When you see these things happen, know My time is near. Your loving Lord speaks." (Encouraged to read Isaiah 41)
(Note: I heard a teacher explain that when you receive a word, you are to interpret it from the time you see the message (or parts of that message) come to light---not from the date it was received. I believe these messages are shared to wake us up and alert us to the signs of the times we live. God is even sending His angels to alert many! For there have been a wave of reports telling how angels are appearing to many all over the world, saying, "Jesus is coming soon! To prepare!" If God is doing this, the time of Jesus' return must be very near!)

May 10, 1990
"My people, listen to the words I speak. Now is the time to awaken your hearts to My calling. My time has come to show all that I am God, no one else. My way is the only way to be assured true happiness and true salvation.
Open your hearts to Me, your God. Let all hear of the love and peace I send. I have touched many lives. Share with others the manifestation of My glory I bring to you, for miracles shall arise from your steps in faith that you take.
Bulgaria shall foresee much political changes. Out of her (either out of the political changes that take place or out of Bulgaria itself) shall arise the false Christ. Beware of what he stands for.
Know that I do live today and call upon your hearts for true salvation. I shall behold all hearts that come to me, and My protection shall be over you. My children, reach out with My love I supply so freely to you. Beware of all deceit! Your loving Lord speaks."
(Note: In September of 1991 I was told by the Lord to stay up and listen to the World News on the television. I found it very interesting that they showed a special segment on Bulgaria that night that said, "Bulgaria was renewing relationships with Israeli Jews after 37 years, and was discussing possible efforts for them to help Israel financially in building new settlements." Although I found it strange that there was nothing about this in the newspapers that week, I do know that Bulgaria has been going through many political changes and are appearing in the newspapers again.

"It shall come to pass that many shall be rudely awakened by the times in which you, My children, live. It is the Spirit of the Almighty God that stands before you. Reach out your hands to Me and praise a holy God that soon shall come back to collect His prize, a holy people of Mine!
Look to the east. Boundaries are forming; some are coming down. These represent differences being broken down, and soon all shall fall under one power and purpose. This power shall be used to deceive many a people. But many shall also see My real truth and shall be set free.
Listen carefully, for I shall instruct My people well. When you see the red flag arise, may this be a sign to you that the Antichrist is soon to arise. Take heed to what this shall stand for. Not long will it be where this shall occur. (Note: Although I used to believe this red flag could be referring to China, Russia, or even North Korea, I now believe it's referring to the United Europe...which is quickly growing in strength and power, and will lead the world in many changes to come!)
My people can only prepare themselves in heart in their relationship with I, their Lord. My calling shall be strong and awaken many hearts in these last days in which you shall live under man. It shall be a harsh time for unbelievers...for My protection and grace shall be sufficient for those who fall under the blood/cross for My redemption.
Take heed to My warning to you all! Look and see; hear and listen with the Spirit I provide. Take notice of what you shall hear and write it down. Keep note of all in your hearts, for My day lies nigh. your Lord, Jesus Christ."

"My people need to acknowledge that My time is near. Much shall occur whereby many shall not understand. But only My ways I understand, saith the Lord your God, from up high.
Reach out and gather. Gather from the east and from the west; from the far corners of the north and from the lower corners of the south. For My Spirit seeks those who dwell upon Me, your God.
Know My will for you, for many shall wander for they do not seek long enough. Let nothing stand in your way! But yield to Me, your God, constantly with happy and joyful hearts.
I come to a people that know Me, your Lord; not so as many say. Reach out to Me and I shall restore and heal a holy people that belong to Me, your Lord, Jesus Christ.
The Persians shall retaliate and send their people upon those called My own. Much that takes place now and/or here shall show the times where you now stand in My word to you, My people. (Note: Relate this to the January 7, 1989 message mentioned earlier concerning the Iraq war.)
Your loving Lord speaks to all My people and I say, "Stand up and be noticed." Yield your hearts and whole lives to Me, for you shall not be disappointed to serve a holy and trustful God that lives and rules today and forever. Amen and Amen." (Ezekiel 35:4-5)

"Listen to what shall occur in the Middle East. Turmoil shall mount and hidden truths shall arise. I have warned my people ahead of time to pray for the unsaved. Do so now and uphold to the wishes of I, your God.
Many shall not understand My words to you, but to you I shall reveal what I speak is truth. Your loving Lord speaks." (Isaiah 27:3 and 41:17)

Be sure to build on God's foundation . . . His Word!
This book is one of constant warnings to stay alert! God is calling many who were at one time only called by man. He is accepting only the work brought about by the power of His Holy Spirit, and rejecting all works attempted through the power of mere man. He is calling the Church back to His Word to preach salvation only possible through the blood of Jesus Christ, and to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. He is crying out to the churches that the only ones that will survive are those whose foundation has been built on the Rock, the Rock of Jesus Christ. And this not only includes churches---but individual hearts as well!
Jesus said, in Luke 7:46-49: "And why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? Everyone who comes to Me, and hears My words, and acts upon them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood rose, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who has heard, and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house upon the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great."

Religion compared to Relationship
Many go to church on Sunday and participate in one way or another. Many have religion, but do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ or the Father. Jesus said, in John 17:3, "And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God (the Father), and Jesus Christ whom Thou (the Father) has sent."
When Jesus spoke of His Church, He spoke in terms of the hearts that belong to Him, not a building. God helped me to understand this the following way: Picture all the people of the universe standing in one place. Now picture all the walls of their denominations lifting. All you would see is people---or hearts! This is what God sees! When you stand before the Lord it will be just you, the Lord and your heart! Make sure you gave your heart to Jesus Christ and truly know the Father and the Son! Again, you can do this WHEREVER you are!
In the end-times much deception will flow over the land. Many will claim to speak in the name of our Lord, but will be false prophets and teachers. Only by YOU knowing the Father and the Son and having a personal relationship with THEM will YOU know the difference. Only by being alert to the Holy Spirit and knowing the Word of God will YOU be able to discern the difference and the times in which YOU are living! Get alone with God and let Him save you and teach you!

The false church and the true Church
The message below explains the difference between the false church and the true Church of Jesus Christ. Pay special attention to "the narrow gate," and the importance of listening to the Holy Spirit...

April 5, 1990
"In the end a mighty church shall arise, taking captive many hearts and souls. To whom she really belongs is a secret to most of them, but their true heart shall be revealed. It all is to ignorance of My teachings, ignorance of Me, ignorance of My Spirit. For if they've allowed My Spirit into their hearts, they would see and they would hear My truth and receive true salvation. The united church shall arise. It is a false church, for it listens to the hearts and teachings of man. Their schedules are placed before their people with careful and precise decisions. They did not take the time to seek My face for true guidance for their way was the right way. The Spirit they did not listen to, but rejected, and thus, shall be held responsible for all whom they lead astray.
The true Church shall arise, side by side. This is the true Church, the Church of Jesus Christ. For they have come through the narrow gate, and I am the gate-the only way to the Father! Not by law, but by faith! Not through religion or by wanting to please man! But by Me, Jesus Christ! Beware of the teachings of unwise men -those who dress in fine linens, but seek the grace of man. Only through My blood shall one be renewed in Spirit-be born again! Only then shall they know Me, the Son of the living God! Release your hearts onto Me, your Lord, and ask for forgiveness of your sins-for I died for you! Your loving Lord speaks." (Matthew 24:13)

A Vision...Coming to the Cross
One night when I was praying, I saw a vision. I was taken to the hill of Calvary where Jesus was hanging on the cross. I found myself looking down from behind the cross (to Jesus' left). I saw Jesus struggle as He lifted up His head and looked back at me. I could see the pain and suffering throughout His whole body and face! He looked at me with deep love and concern-and in my heart I heard Him say to me, "I died for you!" For the first time, I realized what it meant to come to the cross for forgiveness and receive Jesus and what He did for me!

Jesus said, in Mark 7:6-7, " ... This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far away from Me. But in vain do they worship Me. Teaching as doctrines the precepts (or rules) of men."
If you truly want salvation, ask for forgiveness of your sins! Receive Jesus Christ into your heart as your Savior and Lord, and obey God's Word! Get serious today with the only One that matters-The only One that saves-Jesus Christ! And follow Him-not man and the doctrines they teach!

To many, church attendance has only become a routine. Many still are deceived into believing it's their ticket into heaven! Its many leaders, teachers and members, who are placed there to lead hearts to Jesus Christ, have turned many away instead because their religion is ruled by man...not God. Many inside its walls have replaced the real love of God with the love of "self," thus, turning many away from the cross! Many are kept from entering into the Kingdom of God because many inside have not entered in themselves. The result is those inside being held captive by a religion which does not save, and many in need standing on the outside because all they see is man-made religion with no power!
Although there are some churches truly in love with God and doing the Father's will, many need to renew their own lives with Jesus Christ and be led by the Holy Spirit! Open your church doors wide for the lost by first letting Jesus into your own heart...and let the Holy Spirit in! Make a real commitment to Jesus Christ and be used mightily by God for the days that lie ahead, as you preach the full Gospel of Jesus Christ-God's truth-instead of what many want to hear!
Know that the times we live leaves no time for playing church! May your motive be to bring in members for the real Church of Jesus Christ, instead of increasing the numbers in your local church. Make sure Jesus isn't standing outside your church doors...knocking to be let in! Open your heart and church to Him, and let God's Spirit take over! Only then will the lost come in to be saved, and those already inside be saved, as well! Let God lead many to the cross by you getting real with God first! Then open wide the doors of your church!
