Sermon of the Week 
Tuesday, February 28 2023

Whether you scan the page, or read through the message, I want to thank you for stopping by our page. It is an honor for me to post each week, that which the Lord puts in my spirit to share.....My Sunday morning message for February 26th, presented at Eagle's Rest Ministries, meeting in the Double Tree Resort, Key West, Fl. Join us each Sunday Morning in the auditorium of the Poinciana School on Kennedy dr. at 10:30 am, for a time of prayer, praise, worship and the Word.

If these messages are a blessing to you, let us know with a "Like", since it is your way of saying "Amen".

My message this Sunday is "Kingdom Perspective part 1" 

If God’s kingdom were as popular as Magic Kingdom, the whole world would be in it by now! 57,000 joy seekers per day pass through it’s gates. And that's just one theme park!

Kingdom Perspective is not about a magic Kingdom, it’s about the miraculous Kingdom of God come into the earth! Revival is in the air and it’s spreading. 

Mark 16:17 “Miraculous signs will accompany those who have believed, in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues.... v18 they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” This is Jesus’ kingdom contract with believers.... “These miraculous signs shall follow those who believe” 

When we truly enter into a kingdom perspective, we understand that the word of the King is not a suggestion it is law. So as we enter the kingdom, we surrender to Kingdom laws and principals. When we obey the law, the law backs us up, when we disobey the law, the law stands in front of us and blocks our way.. Romans 8:31 “If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not then, with him, also freely give us all things?

I’m going to go around to each one here, with a bible and have everyone lay hands on the kingdom contract that God has made with each believer, who has received Him as king of the kingdom we have entered into. Now, as you lay your hand on this bible, I want you to receive the transfer which He said was yours, of ambassador of the kingdom and Host of His presence. The Holy Spirit will honor the contract, when we accept it...God wants to take us from information to experience. He wants to take what’s in us and place it upon us. John 16:13 “When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come. 14 He will glorify Me by taking what is Mine and manifesting it to you”.…

Revival is actually about returning to Kingdom perspective. Young and old are discovering and rediscovering God’s presence by the Holy Spirit’s moving and working. Many are being brought back to a relationship they left behind, but now, they are returning to their first love. We are adjusting our priorities, and Satan’s lies, oppression and bondage has driven many back to seeking after and rediscovering that their answer is in God through Jesus Christ by the power of the Spirit. Listen, church, Satan is driving folks to seek God. Our task is to be there with the answers. 

Our greatest privilege in life is to host His presence. To learn to be available as a person that God’s presence will rest upon. To be the location where the kingdom of God touches the earth. But it’s not a man-made lifestyle; it’s the lifestyle for which man was made. He is in all of us by covenant, but He is not upon all of us because of our wrong priorities. The challenge we face is to learn to be people who host the presence of the Lord as our greatest calling and priority in life. 

While He is in me for my sake, He rests upon me for the sake of others. When the Lord rests upon a person, there is actually an atmospheric change that takes place wherever that person goes. As our own faith increases—in conjunction with our realm of authority and responsibility—

we are allowed to carry a greater weight of His mantling presence into our environment. You begin to realize that when you are around someone who carries the mantle of anointing well, it stirs up youranointing. Iron sharpens iron. It’s Elijah’s mantle touching Elisha....God took of Moses’ anointing and touched the elders of Israel and they began to prophesy. Hear Moses words, Numbers 11:29 “But Moses replied, “Are you jealous on my account? I wish that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would place His Spirit on them!” Because Moses was an effective host of God’s presence, it got on all the elders who were with him and activated the same anointing on their callings. 

The “reach” of His presence is transformational in nature, changing the atmosphere and culture that people live under. It is what happened on the day of Pentecost when the Spirit of God fell on 120 people. It completely changed the appetite and atmosphere of a city that only days earlier rose up to crucify Jesus and kill his followers. When the mantle fell upon the 120, those who were hiding and fearful, days before, were now wearing the Holy Spirit manifestation of signs and wonders and miracles, and boldly operated in the anointing that was on them. 

After the Spirit of God began to manifest and rest upon this group of 120, thousands spontaneously dropped all they were doing to come and gather around them at nine o’clock in the morning. When the prevailing atmosphere is the presence of God Himself, hunger is created in the hearts of people. The atmosphere of the entire city was transformed as they hosted His presence. 

Let’s believe God and offer ourselves as hosts of His presence so that the atmosphere of our city can be transformed for the glory of God!

Prayer of agreement…….

Lord, we pray for you to revive our hearts and bring revival to our community and our state. We humble ourselves before you and ask forgiveness for any way in which our hearts and minds have been divided and pulled away from our first love. We need to put a lot of things behind us, so we can be free of them and move forward. We ask that you would hear from heaven, forgive any sin that might in any way separate us from You, and bring healing and restoration, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. 

We pray that you would heal us from past hurts, disappointments, and experiences that would try to bring us under an orphan spirit and sow doubt, fear and unbelief. Let our love abound more and more in all righteous judgments and matters of the heart. That we may approve all things that are excellent, lovely and of good report. May we be sincere and without offence, in this wicked time, where we are in the world but not of the world, until the day of Christ. We surrender our will, that we might stand in your intentions and purposes in every area of our lives. 

Let our lives be filled with all the fruits of righteousness and let us be filled with the knowledge of your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Lord, may we walk worthy of the Christ we proclaim, increasing in Your knowledge and Your truth, as we are strengthened with all might ... in all patience and long suffering with joy. May we be counted worthy of Your high calling, and filled with the good pleasure of your peace and contentment in all things. Fulfill the works of faith, through the working of Your Power, that Your great name might be glorified in and upon us. In the name of Jesus, Amen!

Find someone and let’s close by stirring up one another and releasing and activating this kingdom anointing so that it transforms homes, work places, neighborhoods, our city and our state in the name of Jesus!

If these messages have ministered to you and you would feel to support our ministry in any way, you may send any support or drop a note to "Eagle's Rest, P.O box 2820, Key West, Florida 33040.... But most important, keep us in your prayers that we may be a tool in the Master's hands, and Jesus may be exalted continually in our lives and ministry. Thank you in advance and God richly bless you..We look forward to hearing from you.

First Things First

The idea of prioritizing the things of our lives is simple…. Whatever is first, automatically pushes everything else further down on our “What’s Important to Me” list. There is no room for anything else if something is already FIRST!! That place is already taken…

An add appeared in the phone book restaurant section, for “God’s Grill”. A believer who was visiting the area, thought he would check it out. He found the place and was told, that the church started selling chicken dinners to help their finances. They called it God’s grill. They did so good, and they were so busy, that they decided to closed the church in order to keep up with the grill... (true story) 

Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” (Mammon, is referring to riches, wealth and acquiring earthly things and putting that before our service and commitment to the Lord)                                            

On the morning of 20th June 1914, nineteen-year old hired assassin Gavrilo,planned to kill Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria/Hungary. However, after the young assassin’s initial plan failed, he went to the local café to have a sandwich.

Then, in an unexpected turn of events, Leopold, the driver of the Archduke’s car, made a wrong turn and drove right in front of an astonished Gavrilo, who immediately seized the opportunity and shot dead the Archduke, his wife, and Leopold the driver.

This event triggered the first World War, where 16 million people lost their lives, and the world was plunged into the great Economic Depression. The economical crises coupled with the humiliating treaty of Versailles which Germany had to sign to end the war went on to give rise to the nationalist dictator Adolf Hitler, who again started a chain of events that led to the Second World War, where another 60 million people died, an immense amount of money was lost, and the age of nuclear weapons began. One driver making a wrong turn, cost 76 million lives, and changed the world as we know it. The constructive power of proper choices can take any ordinary life and turn it into an extraordinary adventure. The destructive power of misplaced choicescan set in motion generational disaster.       

 As powerful as a horse is, he accomplishes very little until he is harnessed. Steam or gas never drives or pushes anything until it is compressed and properly channeled. Niagara with all of it’s force, is never going to turn it’s power into useful electricity that we all depend on, until it is hooked up to turbines. A computer may have a wealth of knowledge but until it’s plugged in, it’s just a box….Nolife ever reaches it’s full potential until it is properly focused, committed, and disciplined.

If we live by what we feel, we will also fail by what we feel…What we feel must be attached to what we know is best “As many as are led by the Spirit, they are the sons of God”. Feelings can never outweigh truth....

Paul admonished the church of Rome… Romans 6:19."I speak after the manner of men because of the weakness of your flesh, for as you have yielded your body as servants to uncleanness and to iniquity, even so now yield your body as servants of righteousness unto holiness." 

We become what we yield ourselves to…. We may feel strongly about something, but is it wise….

A guy was surprised to see a coveted empty seat in the VIP box, which were going for as high as $6,000.00, at the super bowl game. A diehard Eagle’s fan remarked about it to a man sitting nearby. Oh, yeah, it was my wife’sseat, the man explained, but she passed away “Oh! I’m very sorry to hear that,” said the Eagle’s fan, I’m really surprised that another relative, or friend, didn’t jump at the chance to take the seat reserved for her.” “Beats me,” The man said. “They all insisted on being at her funeral.” (You can’t have your cake and eat it too)

This great adventure called ''life'' places before every one of us hundreds, (and if you live long enough), thousands of possibilities. Some are bad, many are good, and there are a few that are the very best. Each one of us, as we make those choices and exercise those decisions, has to ask ultimately this question, ''What priorities take first place in my life?'' The sum total of our life will be determined by the priorities that we decide on, when we put “First Things First”… If something is important enough,you will find a way, if it’s not, you will find an excuse or an alibi....

Appreciate what you have now, don’t wait till you lose it to appreciate it. Perhaps this is the reason we fail to put many things first that should be first in our “Important to me” list.There’s a big difference in saying “I can’t” or saying “it’s not my priority”...

We fail to put first things first as we begin to live our lives in the realms of “If only” and we start wielding the wand of “I wish” as we pitch our tents in the city of “Regret”…. No one just falls into a broken marriage drug addiction, alcohol dependency, financial disaster, or many other things we could list…. 

But what brought them to the place of camping out in the graveyard of regret, was one wrong priority, one bad decision, one missed opportunity at a time, that led to another and another.                                                                            I have experienced that the critical intersection of where I was and where I needed to be, begins at an altar of “Here I am Lord, take me, break me, bless me and give me away.” Not my will but thy will be done…. I can’t do this, but if You’ll show me the way, I’ll take it…God must always be a priority not an option.

A teacher wanted to make an important point, so he took a wide mouth jar and filled it with rocks. “Is the jar full?” he asked. “Yes,” came a reply.                                 

“Oh, really?” he said. Then he poured sand into the jar to fill the spaces between the rocks. “Is it full now?” “Yes,” said someone else. “OK, let’ssee?”                                 He then filled the remaining spaces between the rocks and stones with water. “Is it full now?” he asked. “Probably not,” said another student, who wasn’t sure at this point. Then he asked,  “What’s the lessen we learn from this?”. A student replied, “No matter how full the jar is, there is always room for more.” That’s good, but not quite,” said the teacher. “The lesson is: to get everything in the jar, you must always put the big things in first, then everything else falls in place.” First things first!

I challenge you to make a list of the big dreams in your life and see them clearly once again. Put the big things first. God, family, career, retirement, etc. but keep them in order. Till you write it down, it’s just a dream, but when you get it on paper, it becomes your goal. Don’t wait for a more convenient season, or when things look a little better…. Start a scrap book, a diary, or just begin to break it down in it’s various components in your mind…. But don’t put it off… start now… the journey of weight loss, the plans for that dream trip, meeting new friends, getting more involved in some area of the church life… Whatever it is, take the baby steps that will become giant steps later on…Sometimes the enemy is what we don’t do! So many times we defeat our own selves by the sin of omission….                                                                                                     The old folks used to say, “A watched pot never boils”…

One old fella, who was recovering from a heart attack, said that he had to deal with a lot of trouble in his life, and most of it never happened.

A doctor, who was paralyzed and bedridden, remained unusually cheerful and positive through it all. His smile was so brave and radiant that everyone forgot to feel sorry for him. His children were inspired by him, and when one of his boys was leaving home for college, the doctor gave him this advice: ’Johnny,’ he said, ‘…please remember the biggest troubles that you will have to face are the ones that never show up.’ 

Worry, about your kids, worry about your sagging skin, worry about your job…. I used to worry about losing my hair….I don’t worry anymore….

What a great tool Satan has loosed upon us, to let us just defeat ourselves with fear and worry….. about things that never happen!

But Jesus made it simple…. “Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these THINGS, will be added unto you”. Maybe not everything I ever wished, but everything He knows I truly need and is best for me. God doesn’t always work in straight lines….

I know you’ve heard it, read it before, but look at it with me once more…

Matthew 6:25 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. (and they’re always eating) Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28 And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will He clothe you- you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the ungodly run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom (the will of God) and his righteousness (what God approves), and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own”.

That’s always such good advice for all of us….This scripture tells us, If I put His will and what He approves first… My needs will be supplied… What a promise!!!

When I think about what the Lord has done in the past, how can I worry about the future…. We were bent but not broken…. we had pain, but we also had healing…. We were disappointed but not overwhelmed…. We saw lean times, but oh, hallelujah, we saw abundance… We got lost at times, but He brought us through safely…. When I think of what the Lord has done, Howcan I do anything but praise and worship Him!!

Did you notice that Jesus talked about the birds and the flowers OF THE FIELD, not greenhouse flowers and well kept birds in an Avery….They were things that literally LIVE BY THE LORD’S PROVISION, outside the realms of man’s help or assistance!

If we feed our spirit and mind on what God has done in the past,in our lives and the lives of others, then our heart and soul will not fall into fear and worry as we move ahead into the future!What He has done is now transformed into faith for what He will do in the journey ahead… Now I’m not advocating an experiential faith alone…. He said it, I believe it and that settles it…. Actually, He said it, that settles it whether I believe it or not…. But faith allows me to participate in the process! 

The principle of first things, is not a spare tire that I take on the journey… it is the gas in the motor that drives the engine of God’s word and moves me forward….

Jesus taught that putting first things first is the solution to handling conflicts with one another. Matthew 5:23-24 ''Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and while still there, you remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. FIRST be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.'' 

Jesus taught that putting first things first is the way to avoid hypocrisy in your life…. Matthew 7:5 “How can you say to your brother, 'Let me remove the speck out of your eye and not see that a plank is in your own eye... 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a 2x4 in your own eye”?…                                                        

That sure cuts down on finger pointing!!                                                                                               Putting First things first, is the cure for fear and worry….                               2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”. 

This scripture tells us that if we live in fear and worry, then we don’t have a right mind…..Webster calls it “An unhealthy mental state”….Our country is in trouble because we are not putting first things first… our homes are in trouble because we’re not putting first things first… Democracy has been perverted because we are not putting first things first…. Dear Lord, where does itstop! When it all gets crazy, maybe it’s because people that are not in their right mind are making the decisions.

If I were to come by your house holding a foil covered dish. “Hey, how are you doing, A few days back Winnie made a strawberry cake. It was so good. It came out of the oven hot, moist, and sweet. I wish you could have tasted it. Today, as I was eating the last piece, I thought of you in the middle of the last bite. So, I put my fork down and thought, I’m taking the rest of this slice to my friend.”

Now, change the scene, and now I’m knocking at your door holding a hot pie plate with oven mitts. “Hey, how are you doing. Winnie pulled this out of the oven a few minutes ago. (believe me you don’t want what I baked) It’s still piping hot. No one has touched it. I got here as fast as I could. I want you to have the first piece. So, here’s the whole pie (although I did bring my fork in case you want to share some with me).”

What a difference, not only in where I placed you in my priorities, but how it made you feel…. Now you’re not looking at me like someone that is not in their right mind, giving you the last bite of the last slice.

Perhaps that’s how God feels when we offer Him crumbs that are left over.

God is big on firsts…. If you check the Strong’s concordance you will find 7 columns of references about firsts in the bible….

Try this one…. I John. 4:19 “We love Him because he first loved us”

And I really like… Romans 8:31-34 "What can we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since God did not spare even His best, His first, His only Son, but gave Him up for us all, will He not also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for His own? Will God? No! He is the one who has given us right standing with Himself. Who then will condemn us? Will Christ Jesus? No, for He is the one who died for us and was raised to life for us and is sitting at the place of highest honor, interceding in our behalf."

When God’s people put Him first, His blessings began to floweverywhere.

Pete Richards was one of the loneliest men in town. He owned and operated a gift shop that had come down to him from his grandfather. Today, a little girl entered the store, She said, “Mister, could I look at that string of blue beads in the window?” Pete took the beads out of the window and spread them on the counter. "EWWWW, They’re just perfect," said the girl. "Could you wrap them up pretty for me, please?" Pete asked, "So, who are you buying these for, they must really be special!" "They’re for my big sister. She takes care of me now. This will be her first birthday since Momma died. Jean Grace wanted to buy the very best gift for her big sister. "How much money do you have?" asked Pete. She took a small paper sack out of her coat pocket and poured out the coins on the counter. "I emptied my piggy bank, It’s everything I have saved up" 

Pete carefully pulled back the necklace. The price tag was visible to him… but not to her. "Just a minute," he said and went to the back of the store.From the back room he asked…. "What’s your name?" "Jean Grace", she replied. He placed the neckless, wrapped in red paper and tied with a pretty ribbon on the counter. She smiled big over her shoulder as she ran out the door.

Through the window Pete watched her go, Something about Jean Grace and her string of beads had stirred him to the depths of his being. Once upon a time, Pete had been in love with a girl with the same yellow hair, and large blue eyes. That necklace was supposed to be HER birthday present…. But on a rainy night—a truck had skidded on a slippery road—And her life was crushed out of his dream. Pete Richard’s world had become very empty and meaningless, until Jean Grace came through his door. When the last customer had come and gone, as Pete was closing shop, a young woman tapped on the glass door, Her hair was golden yellow and her eyes were blue. Without speaking, she took from her purse a package loosely unwrapped in its red paper and a bow of green ribbon with it. She opened the box and place the string of blue beads on the counter. "Did this come from your shop?" she asked. Pete answered softly: "Yes, it did." "Are the stones real?"…"Yes, they are"

"Can you remember who it was you sold them to?" Her name was Jean Grace and she bought them for her older sister’s Birthday present."

"But how did she pay for them?" "She paid the biggest price anyone can ever pay, She gave all she had." "But why did you do it?" He placed the gift back -in her hand. "It’s because she couldn’t give anything more valuable than all she had for you." 

When God gives, He gives His all, and He gives to all –but not all receive the gift and not everyone appreciates the price that was paid so we could have it. Oh, what a precious gift!

He gave His best, let’s not give him the last piece of strawberry cake that is half eaten!!!

Of all the 7 churches of Revelation, it was Smyrna that received the blessing and commendation from the Lord…. 

Revelation 2:8 “These are the words of Him who is the First and the Last, who died and came to life again. 9 I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! …Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.

They were the gold nuggets in an evil time – no matter how much manure gets thrown on top of them, they remain pure gold. They didn’t let the garbage become their identity….They never lost sight of their first love. 

Without that, we are just a social club, that spouts religious rhetoric… Having a form of Godliness but denying the power that is a part of it….

God can’t bless some folks as He would like to, because they have done nothing with what they already have. If He blessed them with more, there would just be greater neglect and a greater mess….

When folks lose sight of what is first, and most important, things just begin to pile up, until nothing makes any sense any longer…

When the order gets reversed, everything goes down hill!

But the solution is simple…. Put God first and everything else begins to line up….Matthew 22:37 “Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”…

I’m out of time…. 

So let’s pray…

Lord Jesus, thank You for Your deep and constant love for me. Thank You for suffering on the cross for my sake, so that I could have forgiveness and eternal life. I desire to seek you first, and love you above all things and all people in my life. It is in loving you, that I am able to love myself and others more. 

Let me not look and rely upon anyone and anything else for what you alone can give. Help me to love as You love, asking nothing in return. 

I will no longer allow past hurts, failures, or injustices to rule my present reality. I cease from my struggles and I rest in your strength and the victory which you have already given me. 

Lord, through the work of Your Spirit in me, I am clean, my mind is clear, and my heart is at peace. I give the enemy no place to effect me any longer, for I receive the truth that sets me free. Thank you for protection over my mind, body and Spirit, through the blood You shed for me.

I commit my life to you, as I seek first Your will, and the things which You approve. You know the answers before I ask the questions, so give me an open and receptive Spirit, that I may surrender and allow you to lead my heart, submit my will always to You, and walk in Your ways, In Jesus Name….

The Great End Time Reset....

When things go Katerwumpas (that means when things shift in one direction too far), a reset is needed, to bring things back in balance.... 

Our opening scripture today leaves no uncertainty, that when man attempts, through Satanic deception, to make radical shifts to reset everything, Father God always interrupts to bring things back into divine order...            

Isaiah 59:19 “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

But just before that statement, we see the purpose of the shift that refers to “a standard that is lifted up”... the object of the verse is ....                                   “So that they shall fear the name of the Lord from the west (sunset), and his glory from the rising of the sun (the east)”.                            Just because it’s dark, doesn’t mean the Sun is gone... Faith, hope, and the sure word of God, take us to what we can see.... (and that’s the sunrise of God’s great reset)....

This reset prophecy comes during a time when the people had separated themselves from the Lord. They had distanced themselves from God by worshipping idols and participating in sinful practices with the culture around them. It had gotten to the point where you couldn’t tell the people of God from the sinful culture around them. 

There was a flood of wickedness and God’s people were no longer disturbed and grieved by the prevailing, mainstream sinful practices. 

It had even been accepted to the point that there were prostitutes and drunkenness in the temple.

Due to the disobedience of God’s people, The favor God had for them was quickly diminishing. Due to their disobedience, their army was suffering greatly and was being slaughtered because of their sins and God had no other choice but to allow disaster to come, so that the pendulum of righteousness and holiness could come back the other way. Somehow, serving God had dropped way down on their to do list. They were marking everything on the calendar except opportunities to serve God and do His bidding.

1 Thessalonians 5:8-11 “But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”                                                                                         Even in the darkness of the world, we are people of the Day, Paul says, because we walk in God’s light, even as He is the light. 

Paul is shifting his focus toward preparing the saints to endure for the Lord during the end times. He knew this would be a difficult season for believers, but one in which we must walk in the glory of God, when our feelings and our sight may fail us.. He’s doing a reset, and he’s letting them know that no matter what comes, and no matter how bad it gets, the glory of God still fills the earth and will reveal itself to those who keep their faith perspective right and their walk of obedience unshaken. 

2 Thessalonians 2:3 – “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 Tim.3:1 – This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. Verse 13 – “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived”.

Well, here we are, we are living at the threshold of the great reset....

We’ve had a dress rehearsal already, and we know that there are a number of factors that led up to the stock market crash, and the reset that took place in 1929, but there’s a general consensus that the underlying factors were overconfidence in the economy, and inflation which contributed towards a panic resulting in hordes of people rushing to banks to withdraw their funds.                              *.......In the classic film, “It’s a Wonderful Life” there’s a “bank run” scene and the statement is made “You’re thinking of the banking institution all wrong,as if the money is here in a safe. It’s not here it’s all investedin the stock market, international funds and real estate.”

The general public, and all the investors were unable to withdraw their money because bank officials had invested their money in the market, a market that had crashed and the money was gone with it.

FDR’s new deal, did a reset of the economy and took the dollar off of the gold standard. Which set the stage for where we are now, printing money with nothing to back it. The Government even mandated that people exchange their gold for currency at a fixed rate or they could be fined or arrested. The government had taken a big step in control of our lives. The fox was running the hen house. 

The next great reset will be global.....It will come through the World Economic Forum and it has been posted on their website, just to be clear, it’s not a conspiracy theory, this is happening and it is here in the near future, and it’s foundations are already being laid.

The WEF is a very influential organization, that is workingwith governments all over the world regarding a one world government. And every country’s leaders are part of it, including our own.                    Biden’s “Build Back Better” program, is actually the slogan of the World Economic Forumwhich is pushing a socialist, global government. 

Their goal is (1)- global socialism which means no one owns anything, the government owns it all..

(2)- All nations will come under Global rule 

(3)- total government control of our lives, China is their model.

The goal is to shape and reset, national agendas into one global       hi-archy. This is where the progressives in Washington are presently taking us.... This “Great Reset” will require the deconstruction of the existing national sovereignidentity in exchange for a global sovereign identity....

Prince Charles..... "I hope you will join me to drive a new Marshall-like plan for nature, people; and the planet. We need a shift in our economic model that places nature and the world's transition to net-zero (no fossil fuels) at the heart of how we operate, prioritizing the pursuit of sustainable inclusive growth in the decades to come.”

(California has already passed a law that no new cars with gas burning engines can be sold or on the highways in California). 

Al Gore, who was a hanging chad away from being president, said “This is the time for a Great Reset” – 

John Kerry.... “This is a big moment. The World Economic Forum  is really going to have to play a front and center role in refining the Great Reset to deal with climate change and inequity—all of which is becoming a priority as a consequence of COVID-19.”

Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada....”Canadabelieves that a strong, coordinated response across the world and across all sectors is essential. This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset.” –

Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum. “Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory. The world as we knew it in the early months of 2020 is no more, dissolved in the context of the pandemic. The COVID-19 crisis has shown us that our old systems are not fit any more for the 21st century. In short, we need a great reset."

We have a frog in the kettle phenomenon at play that warms people up gradually to the ideals of the World Economic Forum.. These folks have invaded our institutions of learning, our financial institutions, our media and our government.                                                           Our young people go into state universities loving God and America but they graduate hating both. 

Thank God that the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, led Britain in pulling out of the European Union, when he saw the restrictions it would place on his own country. This was a huge set back on the globalists plans. We can only pray that our country will do the same, even though it seems they are leading the way into globalism reset!!

The stage is quickly being set quicker than we realize....Whowould have thought that America would welcome and accept socialism, a totalitarian government, and a state-run media. That the population would not be alarmed, as constitutional freedoms of speech and religion are slowly being chipped away as it has already happened on social media- the world’s preferred news source. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are actually global platforms that ignore the constitution of the U.S.

Right now, there is no way that China, Russia, and the United States, would surrender to globalism. But something will be happening that will cause these nations to give in, out of desperation.

There’s a saying, “desperate times call for desperate measures.”

Warren Buffet, the billionaire globalist, who is one of the major sponsors of the great reset, says that the crash that is coming will be worse than the crash of 1929. There are a number of things that could create the ideal conditions for One world government. 

Imagine -a natural disaster on a nationwide scale such as a super volcano in Yellowstone or an asteroid hit.

Perhaps a nuclear war in which has become a possibility with Iran, Russia and China flexing it’s muscles.

Or a financial collapse like the stock market crash of 1929.

Right now if China and India called in their notes on the American debt which they have financed, to the tune of 31 trillion dollars, there is no way we could pay it or stay afloat....That’s desperation....

Millions of people who are sensing that something is coming that will change the way we live, are stockpiling food and fuel, and digging fall out shelters...(I’m not encouraging anyone to do that, but it is a signal of something on the horizon)

Revelation 13:13 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. v2 Andthe beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. v3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 

v4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? v5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. v6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 

v7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. v8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. v9 If any man have an ear, let him hear”.

I personally accept the biblical view that there will be a pre-tribulation rapture pre-ceeding these events.                                                         2 Thessalonians 2:7 “For the mystery of iniquity is already working, only he who now lets (kat-ekh'-o “holds back”) will let, (kat-ekh'-o “hold back”) until he (Christians) be taken out of the way (rapture). 8 then shall that Wicked one (The antichrist) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.”

So the saints will be in heaven with the Lord and all those who have pre-ceeded us in death, at this time. 

But the rapture would definitely create a desperate situation on a global scale, when billions of Christians from every segment of society disappear suddenly. Cars crashing with no driver, planes crashing with no pilot, and every means of transportation abandoned with disastrous results....Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters, and every child on earth suddenly missing....this would effect the media, government, the food supply, the financial market and everything else and send the planet into a world wide panic. 

Believe me when I tell you, there will be a revival on earth when folks realize that everything we have been proclaiming for centuries, has all come true. Churches, temples and mosques will be filled with people crying out to God, but their only hope is to be martyred for their faith in Christ. But if folks can’t stand faithful now, how will they stand then?

All this push for globalism, should tell us that the coming of the Lord is very near, just a global disaster away from reality.... In the middle of the globalist reset, our God has His own reset scheduled!!!

Revelations 17:12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but will receive one after an hour with the beast. 13These kings have one purpose: to yield their power and authority to the beast. 14They will make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will triumph over them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and He will be accompanied by His called and chosen and faithful ones.”…

So, it’s important that we correctly interpret Isaiah’s prophetic word to the nation. You see, when we read “When the enemy comes in like a flood,” we need to see that God had become their enemy, because they saw God as this just, righteous being who wanted to spoil their fun, and crash their party.

Pleasure had become their master, Their IRA account had become their master, their feelings had become their master, oh, and their money had become their master. (God leave my money, my feelings, my football games, and my pleasure alone) God had become the enemy, because, while they were thinking... “what does He need my tithe and offerings for”, “why is He always interrupting my plans with His plans” and “I’ll just serve Him in my own way”! Satan is rubbing his hands together and saying, “I’ve got them, they’re strolling right into my camp without a struggle or an argument”.....                      While the Lord will ask you to prove whom you are going to serve.... with satan, any old thing will do. Whatever is convenient, or suits your fancy....

You see it was no longer clear who their master was, because they would declare they were God’s chosen people, but they wouldn’t let Him be Master when it came down to doing His will and His working, when it became sacrificial and they had to deny themselves, and put the kingdom first instead of their own self life.... 

God is not only going to crash their party, He’s going to overwhelm the ungodly element that has tried to push Him out of the lives of His people, like a flood He is going to sweep among them and show His power, and His might, so that once again a standard will be raised among the people. It will be clear who the master is!

God will always have the last say!! The globalists’ arms are too short to box with God!

Daniel 7:25 says that the antichrist will seek to change the times and the laws. What does it mean that he will seek to change the times? They want to call good, evil, and evil, good.

Our modern woke movement, wants to change our history. It wants to eliminate statues, monuments, and language which is part of our history, and rewrite history. It wants to eliminate the mention of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and keep Christ out of Christmas, the government, education, media, and call the bible an intolerant book filled with hate and prejudice. They teach evolution as a fact rather than a theorywhich was made up by Darwin. The big bang has replaced the Genesis creation. 

-Thousands of years ago the Bible predicted the rise of a world empire through a Hebrew prophet living in Babylon-His name was Daniel, and through his writings we’re also given some insights as to what to expect and what to do.

First, remember Your Identity... Egypt gave them new names: they called Daniel, Belteshazzar; Hananiah, was called Shadrach; Mishael, was Meshach; and Azariah, was called Abednego”.

But they never forgot who they were.... Don’t let them rename you. Don’t let them try to throw your past in your face, or put you in the world’s box, or drag you into their culture of Godlessness!                       Second -Purpose in your heart to serve God...                                                                     Dan. 1:8 “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself”.  They refused to bow to Babylon’s culture or it’s Gods....

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

Third.. Always keep your final destination in Mind.

The global government of the antichrist will come to an end.

The antichrist’s system will come up short. And, The earth will be ruled and reigned over by Jesus Himself and those who serve and follow Him.

Babylon is a shadow of the global conditions before Christ’s return. It will appear that evil is winning. During the end times there will even be miracle working false prophets endorsing the anti-christ and everyone will be going along with the plan. But life outside of God eventually self-destructs. Life lived in opposition to God and His ways ultimately leads to disappointment, heartache, and worse.

God is going to Reset His creation and He’s using us to do it.The Tipping point will come, when God says it is enough!

Pentecost was the reset of Babel, reversed and undone. Pentecost was God’s blessing in bringing people back together — people from every race, nation and language to live as one under God. Pentecost is God ending the chaos and confusion of Babel and empowering His people with the Holy Spirit to spread the good news that Jesus is the name of the Lord. God has His own reset in mind.

The world may call it Woke, but God calls it the AGE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT and the Church. I still believe that He’s coming back for a Glorious Church without spot or wrinkle, washed in the blood of the lamb!!!

May we be purposeful and faithful to our Savior and King in His time.

May you be the Daniel to your world.  

Give Him praise, He is Lord, He is still and always will be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords... He is the eternal, forever, never changing one....I love you Lord, and I will serve you for all my days. You are my forever Lord....
