11 Adar, 5769 Seventh Day SHABBAT!
This message would seem anything but peace but we who know the LORD should have His peace around us all the time. Even when going thru the trials and tribulations of everyday life His peace is around us. I am still reminded of the Purim message.....He is with us no matter what we feel. After we lit our Shabbat candles, I was speaking to the family about His love for us and so the girls would truly understand I told them that it was like a rope...God at one end and us on the other. Sometimes in our walk with Him..and hopefully this is most of the time, we are very close but it happens that we do walk out away from Him and even though we are a ways from Him, He is still holding onto us. Now, I do believe there are those who go so far that they drop the rope......but for the rest of us, He is still where He is all the time. Then, when we realize we are in need of Him, instead of us retracing our footsteps while holding onto the lifeline, He is already there to rescue us.
We are in perilous times, we know this and it is getting worse all of the time. We have some who are saying that we MUST follow our president because the Word says so. No, we should not follow this man, and believe me, I am not going against the word of God!. Obama is against all that God is for. Obama is cunning and he is reclaiming the land of for the ungodly. Many say God placed Obama in office. I would not argue against this because we all knew God's judgement was coming if we the people did not do what was right. Are we to blindly follow him?....no we are not.
AN URGENT MESSAGE Saturday, March 7, 2009 3:37 AM..BY DAVE WILKERSON TIMES SQUARE CHURCH IN NEW YORK....I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message to all on our mailing list, and to friends and to bishops we have met all over the world.AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE—EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US.For ten years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires—such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago. There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting—including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written,“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (v. 3).God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is destroying the secular foundations.The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, “God is fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds. But they will say, It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart” (Jeremiah 18:11-12).In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire)…fire…burning wind…will be the portion of their cup.” Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7). This is a righteous judgment—just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah’s generation.WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD’S PEOPLE?First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. Lay in store a thirty-day supply of food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a bird to a mountain.” Or, as David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in heaven—his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v. 4). “In the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1).I will say to my soul: No need to run…no need to hide. This is God’s righteous work. I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I take—trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.God bless and keep you.In Christ,DAVID WILKERSON
