Get Your Houses In Order


My people, the end times are upon you. The end of all things is approaching, and you must now get your houses in order, for you will all be coming home.

You must now be ready to leave earth at any time. Order your houses thus, as though you knew you would be leaving now. Instruct those who may be left behind. Some of you are scheduled to be leaving very soon and you know it not, and you have not made ready - either in your spirits or your houses.

You must understand the seriousness of the times you live in. Do you not see the grave threats abounding in the world around you now? Do you not see the signs foretold in My Holy Word for these times?

Earthquakes and famines are coming that are like nothing you have ever seen. Plagues the world knows nothing of.

Prepare your houses, your minds and your spirits as though you were leaving tomorrow. Then watch and pray for My Son's soon return.

2 Kings 20:1:  In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.

Matt. 24:7:  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Mark 13:33:  Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

  1. Blessings Glynda,

    This is truly serious business. The new pope is a Jesuit who holds to the 13th rule of Ignatius rules for living with the church that states, in words, if the church says it's black and it appears white to us, we still call it black.

    The old pope is still there, in power, as the new pope speaks like the old pope and deceives.

    I'm excited and humbled at this message. May we be ready at His calling.

  4. so this implies the rapture as many know it will be happening? what happened to "for that day will not come except there be a falling away and the son of perdition(antichrist) is revealed? so far I don't think the pope is the A/C so the bad boy is still out there, but the world hasn't seen him yet

  7. This Pope is a very holy man! He is teaching us to be like Jesus - humble, prayerful, detached from materialism -telling us that if we want to follow Christ we must preach the Gospel, and take up our crosses. This blog should be a place of faith, not prejudice. We all have much to learn, as he too is reading the signs of the times we are in!

  8. Glynda, thank you for posting this timely word! Yes, we must be ready spiritually to meet our Lord at any moment, and to do whatever is possible to put our earthly affairs in order. Then we need to stay close to the Lord and keep praying for the lost to be saved. Jesus will strengthen us for whatever is coming and we need not fear.

    “And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.” Matthew 28:20

  10. anybody know the real history of the jesuits?
    all the info and knowledge Ive obsessed over int he past ten years is now sitting on a shelf in my mind.
    Ive given up trying to follow every event or person or country's actions.
    Now Im just sitting back, watching.
    perhaps with a better understanding of whats transpiring than some have, but still pretty much clueless. Like everybody else.
    waiting, watching.

  17. when one implies that the return of the Lord can be at any moment, it usually implies pretrib rapture. but when one studies out the feast days from the torah, they hold a 2 fold meaning. they happen every year, but they have a secondary meaning in either the first or second comings. the death, burial, and resurrection were fulfilled in the spring feasts, and the second coming will be fulfilled in the fall feasts. the last trumpet will be the feast of trumpets. and when scripture says "that day will not come until a falling away happens AND the son of perdition (antichrist) is revealed, even that he sits on the temple seat. so how can Messiah come at any moment if scripture declares what must happen before He does? I have no issue with the getting the house in order. I believe difficult times are ahead of us we cant even imagine. so we must have things in order to endure it. a remnant that keeps the commandments and has the testimony of Messiah will be protected in what is coming...

  18. I first thought why would someone tell a people that the end of all things is approaching … and then instruct those he speak to … to get their houses in order, for they will all be coming home….

    And then I realized two things ...
    One ... the call was not referring to houses of clay, bamboo, wood, brick or stone ...

    And two ...
    I realized that this is a message from some space … from a particular governing head possibly docked in a mothership in deep space ..

    And the true meaning of this message is hidden in celestial meaning and knowing of key words …

    And I consider this call for evacuation preparation is for a specific group of people to get their houses meaning their “business operations” in order .. … meaning to either give the business over to someone else … or close the business down … as they must be ready to leave earth at any time …

  19. Hi Angie, great question. I believe a much overlooked resource for spiritual preparation is found in Revelations, chapters 2 & 3. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, do a thorough study and make an honest assesment of yourself against what you find written there. This is the best way, in these days, to prepare for what lies ahead.

  20. This comment is in regards to the question asked by yisrem. "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" (2 Thes. 2:3)

    A closer look into the Greek Lexical Aids perhaps reveals some deeper truth to this verse. The words "falling away" in the KJV could have been better translated "departure." It can also mean to "withdraw" or "remove oneself." So, when you re-read the verse using one of those choices, the verse takes on a whole new meaning. But please be advised of the Lord Jesus' Words in Luke 21:36.

    Also, the Lord says that He is coming as a thief in the night and we all know what thieves take. They take the best or the most expensive items. In the spiritual realm, Jesus will be taking with Him those who have been faithful to Him. Those who are not living in the world. Those who are denying self and taking up their cross and following Him. Those who are watching and praying and looking for His return and Not idly sitting around, but actively engaged in the Lord's business, which is whatever He has called each of us to be doing. Those who are left behind will have to ripen (mature) in the hot summer sun, 1st half of tribulation. Why? because they were not mature; they were not ready when the Bridegroom came. They were slumbering. But, they will be caught up to the Throne in Rev. 7:9. Those in the first group will be of those in Rev. 5:9 and they will miss all the tribulation.

    Who, but the All knowing God, knows which of His believers have really been faithful while He has been away? Have I been faithful? Have you been faithful? We don't even know our own hearts as well as the Lord knows them.

    When Jesus returns in Matt 24:29-31 it says that His angels will gather His elect from the 4 corners of the earth. This will no doubt be those believing gentiles,(non-Church) and Jewish remnant that will be gathered to enter the Kingdom on the earth which will commence the 1000 year reign of Christ.

    All the Church age believers will have already been in Heaven, indicated by the 1st Fruits Harvest (pre-trib) rapture and the Main Harvest (mid-trib) rapture.

  21. Angie, you asked what can you do to be ready? I believe in keeping things simple. Just be faithful to Jesus! This you can do by loving Him and your neighbor as yourself. It involves overcoming evil with good. It involves encouraging one another and build each other up. You may want to read and follow what Jesus says in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7.

    In Revelation 2-3, Jesus tells all 7 Churches to have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying. He also says to them, he that overcomes, He will give.....

    What does it mean to overcome? There are three things throughout scripture that come against us as believers on a daily basis and we need to take dominion over them. We need to put them down (take authority) over these things Or they will overtake us as believers. These 3 things are the world, the flesh and the devil.

    Without going into a deep teaching, I will simply say for you to keep your eyes focused on Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of your faith. Remain faithful to Him, pray and continue telling others the Good News of Jesus Christ!!

  22. snyders...

    by your saying there is a pretrib rapture, you bring in that there are 2 comings of Messiah. the secret coming where people suddenly disappear, and then the final coming at end of tribulation. if the first coming removes the believers from earth it has to include the resurrection of the dead in Christ.

    revelation 20:4-6 (amplified version)

    Then I saw thrones, and sitting on them were those to whom authority to act as judges and to pass sentence was entrusted. Also I saw the souls of those who had been slain with axes [beheaded] for their witnessing to Jesus and [for preaching and testifying] for the Word of God, and who had refused to pay homage to the beast or his statue and had not accepted his mark or permitted it to be stamped on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived again and ruled with Christ (the Messiah) a thousand years. 5 The remainder of the dead were not restored to life again until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection.
    6 Blessed (happy, to be envied) and holy (spiritually whole, of unimpaired innocence and proved virtue) is the person who takes part (shares) in the first resurrection! Over them the second death exerts no power or authority, but they shall be ministers of God and of Christ (the Messiah), and they shall rule along with Him a thousand years.

    how can the rapture happen but yet rev 20 speaks of first resurrection happening at end of trib, and the dead raised will rule and reign in the 1000 year kingdom? scripture does not support multiple comings...

  23. Just thought I would post some words written by Corrie Ten Boom in 1974. In this letter, she tells of the Chinese Church's being unwarned and ill-prepared for perseuctions that began in 1949under Mao Tse Tung's red guard. Corrie Ten Boom was sent to a Nazi death camp, along with her family, for hiding Jews in Holland during WW2. Her family died, but she survived and went on to testify all over the world how God brought her out of that terrible time of trouble. This is a portion of what she said in that particular letter.
    In China, the Christians were told, “Don't worry, before the tribulation comes you will be translated — raptured.” Then came a terrible persecution. Millions of Christians were tortured to death. Later I heard a Bishop from China say, sadly,
    We have failed. We should have made the people strong for persecution rather than telling them Jesus would come first. Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution, how to stand when the tribulation comes — to stand and not faint.
    I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are in training for the tribulation, but more than sixty percent of the Body of Christ across the world has already entered into the tribulation. There is no way to escape it. We are next.

  24. Glynda,

    I know multitudes will read these words and think it's referring to a pre-trib rapture. But we know Yahshua (Jesus) will return for a spotless bride. A bride who has learned to distinguish between the clean and unclean and chooses the clean. (Eze. 44:23, Eph. 5:27, Isa. 7:16) But we know that today God's people are defiled and don't know the difference between the holy and the unholy. (Eze. 22:26, Mal. 2:5-7) Instead, God's bride is covered with sores and wounds that haven't been bandaged. (Isa. 1:5-6)

    I have friends that have already been called home early, even leaving their children to be raised by others. God's severity is falling on a church that pretends to be one thing but has chosen another. (Rom. 11:22)

  25. Drews 100% correct. Only cowards want to be raptured before the Trib theres too many unsaved souls on their way to hell id rather be here doing exploits, bringing in the last harvest. Dont be fooled persecutions coming for those of us left behind (not killed) Revelation 13:7 Daniel 8:24 We need to have our lamps full and be prepared. We wont be if were thinking were going to be taken out of here. Thats why Satan has pushed this pre Trib rubish so hard so Gods people arent ready for whats about to befall this planet.

  26. Thank you for everyone's comment thus far. I believe sometime back in late 2012 I heard, "Sell everything you have". I didn't take it too seriously. Now I am trying to obey they word and I praise God for his grace. I live in San Francisco, and for years I have not been taking the Lord seriously. I am trying to shape up now and give my whole heart to the Lord. I hope I can connect with some brothers and sisters on this site. I hope I can be supportive and prayerful towards some :)

  27. Yisrem,

    Thank you for your response. And also for challenging what has been stated in a very positive way. This is why iron sharpens iron. The only point I choose to make at this time is the fact about the word "resurrections." The fact that scripture mentions a first resurrection, indicates to us there must be a second. BUT, how do we know that there can't be several raptures or resurrections (included in the 1st resurrection)?

    Jesus Christ was the first resurrection; (All 4 gospels)

    Then we had those coming out of the graves in Matthew 27:53, (And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
    after Jesus resurrection.)

    We also have the believers mentioned in Rev. 5, (And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;)

    Then we have the souls under the altar in Rev.6:9 (And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:)

    We then have the unnumbered multitude of believers mentioned in Rev.7:9 (After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;)

    And then of course we have the two witnesses in Rev 11:12,(And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.)

    Then we have in the 144,000 firstfruits in Rev 14:3, (And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.)

    Then we see there is a reaping also of the earth in Rev. 14:16, (And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.)

    And lastly we see what you had pointed out in Rev 20:4, (And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.)

    The point I want to make is this...God's Word is infinite and we cannot limit Him to something we may think only means this way or that way. It could mean something completely different (as in the case of multiple resurrections) which apparently are grouped into one overall encompassing resurrection as meaning "The 1st Resurrection."

    If this is the case, then the 1st resurrection obviously has several different stages of resurrections or raptures which are grouped together to form "THE" 1st Resurrection. "Blessed is he who has part in the first resurrection."

    Now, I am not saying that what I have stated is all correct in the way I have stated it. I am only making reference to the fact of what scripture is saying and what scripture mentions. And it shows us all of these different groups of individuals appearing in Heaven and around the throne at different times intervals. We must keep in mind that we are not limited to all the resurrections happening at the same time. No one is born or dies at the same time.

    The book of Daniel mentions a most interesting scripture concerning this issue. Dan 12:13 (But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.)

    And you are right...from what I see the scripture does NOT support multiple comings. There is only One second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth recorded in Zech 14:4.

  28. In answer to all those who have inquired of me about my viewpoint on the rapture or 2nd coming, I asked the Lord about that back in 2007. He gave me a vision and I posted it in the oldest postings here on this website in a posting called, "Lord, What About the Rapture?"

  29. It is my belief that we will be enduring alot of persecution before Jesus comes.And for those of us that won't be able to handle it,God will call us home. I think the most important thing that we can do to prepare is store up as much of the word as we can.Glynda,thank you for your ministry.The words that you have had,really has impacted my life.

  30. @Jim the Pope is a man in a costume. Being loving and supportive does not mean supporting and things that are not based in scripture. You have it twisted.

    Regarding "The Rapture" and the scriptures like "one will be taken and the other left" reading the whole context, the wicked were taken, the righteous remained. Noah remained, the wicked were taken. Lot remained, Sodom and Gommorah were taken in judgement. The tares are gathered and burned then the wheat was gathered in the barn. Then there was Y'shuas prayer In John 17:15 "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil." I have a feeling and belivers that are "taken" it will be by them passing away as the scriptures do not support a rapture in their context.

    Isaiah 57:1
    The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.



    In all the passages the wicked are removed first. Prov 2:21-22


    21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

    22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

    So we need to take our cue from China and prepare

  31. I have to say that I really don't like seeing people make comments against the Catholic church, anymore than I would like to see them made against any Protestant church. And I've noticed during my life that most of the time comments directed against a religion are from people who have never been part of that religion or studied that religion.

    Catholics are Christians, period. If you don't agree with their leader's interpretation of scripture in some areas, that's your right and choice. But that doesn't give you the right to judge Catholics or the Catholic church. Do you have God's mind? Do you know what He thinks about every aspect of their teachings? Do you know what's in the mind and heart of every Catholic?

    Let me answer that for you. No, you don't. And it's not your place to judge. Anymore than it was the Pharisee's place to judge Jesus or the many other religious sects that existed in Israel and Judea in Jesus' time.

    Jesus always wants His people to do their best to come together in their efforts to serve Him, especially in times like these. Not to tear each other down.

  33. Can we add to that list people in politics, such as our president?

    They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. 2 Peter 2:10-11

    ReplyDelete
  34. so it comes down to not offending a person, when another is led to bring up what they hold to is not in the scriptures? are not the denominations of man? yet to speak a few words to someone about things that are either found in the word as something not to do or just not found, that discussing things is now off limits due to offense?

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Eric I suggest you read "the Two babylons" and "Pagan Christianity". those two books explain alot about church history and it has nothing to do with attacking any denomination, but addressing the things that conflict with Yah's (God's) word. Addressing the truth is different from attacking someone. We have it turned around when we think that God supports anything that goes against his word no matter who is doing it. We have an obligation to uphold his word in spirit and truth not man made traditions created in his name. that is why we have to study his word to see what he approves of and what he does not. If I say to a woman "hey your slip is showing", that is different than me saying, "Hey you look fat and ugly in that dress" One I am pointing out a flaw to be corrected,the other I am insulting and attacking her.

My dear dear brothers and sisters. this will be the first time that i will be commenting on this blog but i feel i should from my recent personal experiences. i have been turned off from other blogs where there have been catholic/protestant bashing or prejudice. And it makes me wonder if i as a christain could be turned off, then i dread to think what non-christains or people on the borderline who have been searching for Jesus and have been led to such blogs will do or think of us christains. We are all part of the same family of Jesus and i think we should be striving for unity and love at all times. And as we all believe that there is a coming persecution, please do not let us start or enkndle such from the body of Christ.

  38. I am a subscriber to this wonderful ministry and I am a charismatic catholic. I too am weary of the smears on the church, it, like others, has much to be desired, but there are MANY sincere followers of jesus and they are ready for the hard times ahead. a note on the Jesuits, they are not a monolithic block of people. I know one who owns guns for hunting and is very patriotic for America and LOVES jesus. others vary. but there are hardly the bedrock of the new world order as usually charged.

  40. @yisrem: I don't think that's what was said. The concern was against 'blanket' statements against any denomination, church or ministry. In other words, if you're 'x' religion, you're wrong.

    @Demita: What I took issue with from you was your comment of:

    "@Jim the Pope is a man in a costume. Being loving and supportive does not mean supporting and things that are not based in scripture. You have it twisted."

    When you said this you were not addressing any particular trait of the Pope or Catholics that you have concerns about. I don't know of any other way to interpret your statement to Jim than the Pope is a fake and doesn't support anything based on scripture.

    Yes, Christians are supposed to challenge each others beliefs when possible. In a positive, loving, and constructive way. On a case by case basis. Calling an entire Christian religion false and it's leader fake doesn't fit into any of those categories.

    And I challenge any Christian who believes that everything they believe is flawless and without room for improvement. Basing all of your beliefs on scripture does not mean you've got it all figured out. The Pharisees based all their beliefs on scripture too. There's always room for improvement as we continue to experience life.

    Thank you for your insights Yemi and Mark. I share your concerns and beliefs on this.

    Thank you for your perseverance in Christ Glynda, and for sharing what you believe God is leading you to share.

  41. Glynda, could you explain how you receive/hear/discern the messages you get from YHWH? Do you hear it word-for-word like dictation? Or do you "sense" it and write about that in your own words? The reason I ask is that the word "earth" does not seem to fit. Did YHWH actually SAY to you that believers would be leaving EARTH? I forwarded this post (as I have most others I've received in the past year or so) and it caused a flurry of discussion amongst several people--so I thought I should get more clarification from you about this message. Many thanks.

  43. The Word, made flesh in Jesus Christ, is our guide as to what is right and wrong in God's sight.
    words spoken by any are often termed that person's mind, but did man invent this saying or idea? or when God spoke was that also His mind (and with God His Word is so much more). It's also written to let/make your judgement righteous or just. How would we find the base of truth to make a right judgement? the Word is the Truth and the base to decide on what is right and wrong and harmful to us. We are called often to judge, for instance-bad company corrupts good morals, one must make a decision to determine who/what is bad company, and the Word is our guide.

    false teachings can be harmful, even deadly, and ought to be exposed and warned against, warning against a false teaching and any teaching it who after many attempts to get them to stop, to see the error but refuses and continues to teach wrong, is needful, as it may prevent others from falling into something harmful. Jesus warned often about the teachings of the pharisee..and why warn but in hopes of keeping some from the fire and snatching some already in the fire out of the fire.

    love covers a multitude of sins, but an ongoing misleading of others shouldn't be overlooked same as an ongoing practice of any sin. We can forgive, but never say it's right, and instead always warn and speak the truth with love.

    today's age is often taken to accepting of various things, sins, false teachings, versions of Christ which also bring a different gospel and false way to the Father..not a good thing. Stick to the Word and the gospel once for all delivered to the saints. the Word is the Word, doesn't change, the choice to hold to it is ours.

    But yes, we speak with love, remember many are ensnared or astray and need help. How many times have we any been astray and been helped, and thankful for the helps. But don't mistake truth and told to help as bad because it upsets, today's PC world would have no upsettings happen never at no time, in other words no truth would ever be spoken in order to help because biblical truth shows the flesh and the world it's in darkness.

  44. I think of the child in the story "the emperor's new clothes" the child just the obvious while the adults were in denial because they did not want to offend the king or look foolish. Jesus never said to never judge. He said judge righteously (John 7:24), he also said do not judge in hypocrisy (Matt 7:1-5)We are so quick to shut people down who are addressing things that may challenge some long held beliefs that could be wrong or in error that we have held on to. Or if people DARE say something we believe conflicts with the bible, we call people "Pharisees" for pointing it out.

    It is true only God knows someones heart and where they stand with him but there are things that are painfully obvious and it does not make a person a "Pharisee" or "judgemental" for stating the obvious. It seems we have gone from condemning people to hell for every little thing, to being so much in denial about things that need to be addresed that we have sacrificed common sense in the process. We see blatant sin and and either we say "well I don't want to be judgemental" OR if someone points it out "Judge not lest ye be judged" to shut them down.

    Jesus was not passive or in denial about things.He called a spade a spade as did John the baptist. But he did it in righteousness and in love, But he still called the Pharisees a generation of vipers. Jesus was not a passive doormat. We have gotten to he point that we avoid telling the truth because somehow we have bought the lie that to offend someone (for righteousness sake) is sin. That if we stand up for what is right and people get mad that we are wrong. NO! Not necessarily so!

    If we walked with the real JESUS today, many of us would stop walking with him because he told the truth and was not the politically correct leader we have created in out minds. He blessed Simon in one breath for recognizing him as the Son of God and a few minutes later rebuked him for letting satan use him to try to distract Jesus from his mission to die on the cross. He constantly pushed the envelope for righteousness sake. But I ask have we become such hot house flowers that the slightest challenge to what we believe we are leveling inaccurate accusations to shut people up and shut them down? Are really about seeking God's truth or are we about making sure what we believe right or wrong is protected?

    I can say from personal experience that the last 15 years God has challenged my faith on every turn. He has dealt with some very entrenched ideas I had about him and how I understood his word. It was not pretty, but necessary, but I know if I wanted to really get to know him I had to let go of things I was defending and let the TRUTH penetrate my heart and mind. I think the reason why alot of believers are not experiencing more of God is because they will not give up their traditional views of him. Jesus told the religious leaders that they chose to reject the word of God that they may keep their tradition. We have to be careful that we are not doing the same.

  45. Cinderella 12,

    You are so right!
    You took the words right out of my mouth...

    Thanks for writing your comment!

  46. I'd like to make some clarifications about what I posted earlier, and about the comments that have been made about 'how it's wrong not to judge or challenge because you're afraid to offend' or how 'you shouldn't be called a pharisee for challenging something'.

    I never said that it's 'not ok' to challenge other people's beliefs or traditions. I pointed out that it's wrong to bash other people's religions. There's a big difference between challenging someone's belief and bashing a religion. Huge. So all of this discussion about 'not challenging anything because you don't want to offend is wrong' - if that was directed at my post, it's misplaced because that's not what I stated.

    There are a lot of points that could be discussed about this, but it would be better served in a forum environment. Comments here aren't the best place for a back and forth between people, especially since Glynda has to moderate and it just creates more work for her. But I felt that I had to say something about the comments directed against the Catholic church. Because they weren't comments that were challenging any belief or tradition in a constructive way, or uplifting or benefiting anyone. They were simply comments implying that the Pope is false and so is his religion.

    I also never called anyone a Pharisee. I cited them as an example of what not to be, and pointed out that one of their characteristics that Jesus took issue with them on was dismissing other groups of people as lesser than themselves, and less worthy than themselves, simply because they didn't believe all the same things the Pharisees did or have all the same characteristics that they did.

    Jesus did ask us not to judge, and indicated there would be consequences for doing so. See Mathew 7.

    If anyone wants to discuss this with me further, feel free to email me about it. I don't plan on posting anything else about it. Unless I see someone making posts that include bashing a religion again. Because Glynda has already asked us not to do that and it's not constructive.

    Voicing a concern about an opinion or belief can be constructive, assuming people wish to have a healthy debate about it and respect each other while doing it.

    Insulting someone's religion because it's different than yours is not constructive. Insulting a leader of a religion because you don't agree with the religion or some of their ideas is not constructive.

    We're here to help people understand why Jesus is the answer for everyone, and how He loves all of us. Does anyone here (including myself) think that insulting someone else is the best way to promote those ideas?

  47. Thank you, Eric, for your consideration. I appreciate it.

    The Lord told me a few years back to judge other minister, ministries, etc. ONLY as far as whether I myself should listen to them and not to take it any further, including not commenting.

    Comments on this site should be limited to commenting on the words posted.

  48. @Eric Jesus Said in Matthew 7 do not judge hypocritically. The consequences come from judging another in hypocrisy MEANING I am telling you to stop smoking while a ciggarette is hanging out of my mouth. He said deal with your own sin then you can properly help someone address theirs. We cannot just pick the part of the scripture that supports our argument, you have to read the whole thing and in the context that Jesus said it in otherwise it leads to misunderstanding. Kind of like if you said "teenagers are irresponsible who text and drive" and someone says ,"Eric said teenagers are irresponsible." That is not what you said but see how them omitting part of what you said changes the meaning?


    Going around bashing people or attacking peoples beliefs is one thing, putting up red flags is another. We have to understand what Jesus meant about judging, but I think we have taken it too far in the other direction now where any type of challenge or question no matter how respectful and sincere is still seen as bashing. As Cinderella 12 said, if people walked with Jesus today, we would probably try to shut him down and shut him up like the religious leaders of old. Even his disciples commented on him causing offence.

    We clearly don't really read who Jesus truly was. Our image of him being this passive hippie savior who passes out flowers and says "make love not war" won't let us see him raw and uncut, Fearless and bold. His biggest grief came from those who were deeply religious and were constantly trying to police his behavior; healing a woman on the sabbath, eating grain in the field on the sabbath. etc. it was not the everyday people, many of whom received him, not police him.

    As I said before and after this I will comment no more on this feed. There is a difference between telling a woman her slip is showing and calling her fat and ugly in a dress. Today I was riding the bus and there was a young woman with a piece of tape stuck to her jeans. I gently tapped her, pointed to the tape and asked permission to remove it. She thanked me and I removed the tape. I did not say "hey you are a slob, did you look in the mirror before you left? look at that tape on your pants, ugh!" I quietly addressed the problem and took care of it and I had no tape on my jeans thank you so I was free to help her with hers. :)

  49. The new pope IS Peter the Roman the last pope as prophesied by St. Malachy! Beware and proceed as necessary.

    The prophecy of St. Malachy:

    In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit [i.e., as bishop].
    Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.[13]

    Now those who have followed St. Malachy's Pope predictions knows he used veiled descriptions to describe them. Follow the logic here:

    Petrus Romanus or 'Peter the Roman' is the supposed name of the very last pope in the prophecy of the popes by 12th centruy saint Maelmhaedhoc Ó Morgair, better known as St. Malachy. Pope Francis is the last pope of the prophecy as far as numbers go but is he Petrus Romanus?

    Francis of Assisi is known for Rocca Maggiore, which means Big Rock, which is the meaning of the name “Peter,”
    so, Pope Francis is named for Francis of Assisi – Francis of Big Rock.

    Nostradamus’ Quatrain 49:

    Nul de l’Espaigne mais de l’antique France,
    Ne sera esleu pour le tremblant nacelle,
    A l’ennemy sera faicte fiance,
    Qui dans son regne sera peste cruelle.

    Not from Spain but from ancient France,
    Will be elected for the trembling ship [the Bark of St. Peter],
    He will make a promise to the enemy,
    Who will cause great plague during his reign.

    Pope Francis’ parents are from Turin, which happens to be ancient France (Lombards and Charlemagne). Argentina apparently means “Old Spain,” so Francis is not from Argentina but “ancient France” – true if one is speaking of his ancestors. More recently, his ancestors came from Rome/Italy, of course, so the new pope’s heritage is Roman/Italian.
    Beyond this obscure thought is the fact that “berg” in German means “mountain” (but not Latin or Italian). And a mountain is also a rock when speaking symbolically (The Rock). It is true that with old phrasing, we are dealing with several languages including Latin, so some leeway needs to be given.

    The new pope chose "Francis," referring to St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis of Assisi's birth name was "Giovanni Francesco di PIETRO Bernardone. St. Francis' original name included “Peter.”

  50. I would caution about receiving anything that comes from the Pope without it it first being run through the Holy Spirit and God's word. 2Ti 3:5    holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof: from these also turn away.
    This Pope descends out of the order of the Jesuits which is the group that persecuted Gods people the most. We are to love people but we are also to be wise as serpents as well. Mat 10:16    Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Even Satan comes as an angel of light. We always assume that deception comes from people proclaiming prosperity, loose morals, etc, but the most powerful deceptions come from a form of godliness for at the moment it seems right but what is underneath is rottenness and dead men's bones. Again, I don't proclaim to know everything that is in the Pope's heart but in my spirit I hear the words "beware". Draw close to The Lord and follow his voice only for his sheep will hear his voice and not listen to another. The Lord bless you!

  51. @Michael: With regard to your statement about confirming anything that the Pope says with the Holy Spirit and His word, I would think that's a given. Not just with the Pope, but with anything.

    As far as your statement about the Jesuits persecuting God's people the most, I don't believe that statement to be grounded in reality or history.

    First of all you must remember that Catholics are by definition Christians and are therefore also 'God's people'. Catholics could also state Protestant churches that have been hard on 'God's people' in their opinion. This kind of strife benefits no-one.

    It might help you to know that Jesuits believe that the reform of the Church has to begin with the conversion of an individual's heart.

    I'm sure if someone really tried they could find something that a Jesuit did or said at some point that seems like a bad thing. Especially if taken out of context. Similarly, if someone really tried to find something a Protestant did or said that seems like a bad thing, that could be done also. Henry the Eighth, for example. Should all Protestants be considered to be like Henry the Eighth because he was a Protestant and the leader of a Protestant church?

    How about if we identify different Christian groups in accordance with the ideals they strive for, and not brand them in accordance with the mistakes made by some of their members in the past?

  52. Wow how that statement you made about a "famine unlike anyone has seen" REALLY stuck out to me I got that message too back in 2010. Confirmation to me. Funny how when God speaks to you and you are reminded of it. The whole vision and words come back crystal clear. It is like you are in that same place for one moment... remembering it all. Wow he is so amazing and complete with everything and in everything. I am so heart-broken for the lost. But when he speaks no matter what it is I find peace and happiness in his correction and control. I am great-full he loves us. I am thank-full for my family in Christ. I love you all and haven't even got to meet you in person yet.
