HIS+ VOICE As the Sound of Many Waters . . . The TIME is At Hand




PHOTO BY THE ORDER OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD+



  . . . and HIS+ VOICE 
as the sound of many waters.
Revelation 1:15
+  +  +
HIS+ VOICE is THE  VOICE that WILL be heard !

HIS+ VOICE is the One that  will be listened unto by all upon the face of the earth .

 HIS+ VOICE will strike terror into the hearts of all CHRIST-REJECTORS.

HIS+ VOICE will send UNQUENCHABLE JOY unto the hearts of the Righteous.
 
O, come, LORD JESUS. 
Let us hear Your+ VOICE !

Right now, we CAN hear His+ Voice. His+ Voice will speak directly into our hearts  . . . but we must tune out OTHER VOICES and tune ourselves to hear HIS+.

The key to hearing His+ Voice is this:  STILLNESS.

That is , we must be QUIET in the inner man, not restless, agitated, or unsettled. 

 We must unyoke the burdens of the day and the concerns pressing our hearts and lay them all aside for a short time. They will be waiting for us when our QUIET time is over.  HE+ knows what we need before we ask. 

In this day and age, with electronic signals bouncing off the walls and into our heads, being STILL is a struggle. 


If we want to hear His+ Voice though, A TIME TO BE STILL is the price we must pay. We must disengage from so much activity.  We must say NO to so much interaction.  We must make a DETERMINED EFFORT to carve out a time for QUIETUDE. ***


REMEMBER: It is that still, small VOICE which spoke to ELIJAH the Prophet, which we want to hear directing our every move. 

from I Kings 19:11-13


And HE said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD.
And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD;
but the LORD was not in the wind:
and after the wind an earthquake;
but the LORD was not in the earthquake:

And after the earthquake a fire;
but the LORD was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.

And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a VOICE unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah? . . .
+  +  +


O LORD JESUS, 

I run from being STILL.  I am addicted to being busy, producing, and interacting. I constantly think about my responsibilities. 

I want to hear that STILL, SMALL, VOICE which comes from YOU+.  I need Your+ direction for every step of the way and especially for those steps not mentioned in Your+ WORD. 

I  yield the control of my life over to YOU+ now, O LORD JESUS. 

 I yield my time over to YOU+ now. Show me how to set aside my pressing thoughts and come to YOU+ as a child, quietly waiting Your+ good pleasure.

I humble myself now and WAIT upon You+, O LORD.  

Blessed art THOU+ , O LORD, from all Eternity, 
to the Ages of the Ages. 
THOU+ are WORTHY to be praised.
+  +  +


***To start, try 15 minutes of just being still and quiet . . . no phone, no chores, no reading, no studying, and no supplications.  JUST BE STILL. Ask The LORD to help you be still.  HE+ WILL. 

Set a timer.  When the timer rings, you can read or study, pray, make supplications, or write. 

Do this regularly and determinedly. If you do , the QUIET time will start extending itself. You will be looking forward to “un-yoking” from the world and sitting before JESUS. Remember: Mary chose that good part which was not taken away from her.

Best of all: you can be exhausted from the day’s duties and still be able to BE STILL. Nothing is required of you but STILLNESS. 

You will rise from that STILLNESS BEFORE THE LORD JESUS refreshed. If you fall asleep, just rejoice; the Beloved SAVIOR+ knew that was what you needed the most.

HIS+ FEET . . . As They Were In The BEGINNING . . . The TIME is At Hand






WHERE and HOW did HE+ Receive Feet
like Burnished Brass ?
And HIS+ Feet like unto fine brass,

as if they burned in a furnace;  . . . 
Revelation 1:15

HIS+ EYES . . . As a FLAME OF FIRE . . . The TIME is At Hand



HIS+ Head and his Hairs were white like wool,

FRIENDS OF CHRIST . . . REVELATION 1:11 . . . The TIME is At Hand



I was IN THE SPIRIT on the LORD'S DAY, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying . . .

I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, 
THE FIRST and THE LAST:

and, What thou seest, write in a book,

AND SEND IT
unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 
Revelation 1:11
+  +  +

The ALPHA–and-OMEGA+ is not a printing company nor a curriculum, but the LIVING LORD JESUS , The FIRST ONE+ Risen from the Dead , and The LAST WORD+ --- The FINAL WORD+ --- in every situation dealing with man.

Are we the Apostle John’s companion  . . .  in tribulation ?

BURNT RUINS OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH DISCOVERED BY RON WYATT

And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, 
shake off the dust under your feet 
for a testimony against them. 

Verily I+ say unto you, 
It shall be more tolerable 
for Sodom and Gomorrha 
in the day of judgment, 
than for that city.

Mark 6:11 


SEE the remains of Sodom and Gomorrah 
as Ron Wyatt films the discovery of these burnt ruins, 
with his teen-age sons.



 
And THE LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, 
and because their sin is very grievous;


Then THE LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah  
brimstone and fire from THE LORD 
out of heaven;


And BABYLON, the glory of kingdoms, 
the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, 
shall be as when 
GOD overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.




And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes 
condemned them with an overthrow, 
making them an ensample 
unto those that after should live ungodly;


Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, 
giving themselves over to fornication
and going after strange flesh, 
are set forth for an example, 
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Present Your BODIES as a LIVING SACRIFICE . . . THE TIME IS AT HAND


Crying Mom and Daughter after the Parkland High School shooting on Ash Wednesday , 2018. Notice the ASH CROSS on the mother's forehead, indicating that she had attended an Ash Wednesday Church Service. Notice that her daughter was shaken, but still alive. Slain were 17 young people in this tragic offering to satan. 



PRESENT YOUR BODIES A LIVING SACRIFICE . . .

Unto HIM+ that loved us, and washed us from our sins in HIS+ own BLOOD+ . . . 

And hath made us kings and priests unto GOD and HIS+ FATHER;

to HIM+ be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Revelation 1:6 

While we were yet sinners, CHRIST died for us.

Romans 5:8



CHRIST JESUS takes Repentant sinners and makes us into something we never could be on our own: Acceptable to HIMSELF+ and HIS+ HOLY FATHER, and ours.

WHAT is Missing from the United Methodist's Out-Reach of LOVE to the LGBTQ Community ?


This past week the Christian world was treated to front-row seats to watch the NICEST, most MANNERLY group debate that could possibly be, during the division of an UN-unified Methodist Church.

WHERE Can I Go to CHURCH ?







Where Can I Go to Church ?

Brothers and Sisters from every group, every denomination, from every part of the BODY+ of CHRIST are asking this question . 

Remember the parable of the bundles of tares
being gathered for burning ?

Are the “bundles”  
Truth-rejecting churches ?


Those who know Abortion is an Abomination to GOD --- for those babies are HIS infants that are being butchered and sold to chemical companies and science labs --- are hard-pressed to find a Christian church which will NOT excuse Abortion.

1 JOHN 1:9 is NOT for "Everybody" ! Well then . . . how are our Sins REMOVED ?



HOW DO WE CLEANSE OURSELVES

FROM OUR SINS ? 
Scripture speaks of TWO DIFFERENT WAYS to TWO DIFFERENT sets of people for the cleansing of sin.  


We know this is TRUE because of TWO SCRIPTURES:  ACTS 2:38 and 1 JOHN 1:9.

WARNING: ENNEAGRAMS and CHRIST JESUS Do Not Mix !


Followers of JESUS:

Beware of the Deception of the Enneagrams of Personality Teaching which is making its rounds through the modern church circles.

This — and other — new age teachings are being ACTIVELY promoted by Richard Rohr, an apostate Franciscan priest in New Mexico. 

 

What is SIN, to Mr. Rohr ?

“GOD is like a spinning top of love inside of every living creature. Everything grows from within. When you squelch that inner life force, I think that is the real meaning of SIN. “You” die.”

AGE OF APOSTASY: What Do John Piper, Rick Warren, and the Current Pope Francis Have in Common ?




Commentary by Samson7Able
Hat-tip to REBEL PLANET DISPATCH 


The VIDEO can be found on YouTube at the link under the picture. 
It is 8 minutes long.
Brothers and Sisters,
                          
We are living in the End Times, in the Age of Apostasy.
The Apostle warned us, "Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."
This brother, Jacob Prasch,  is speaking a warning to all serious Christians about this apostasy  and the ECUMENICAL movement which seeks to join all religions together into a world religion.
