Obama Taking Action Against the United States

By James Bailey

obamaEarly last year I remember laughing when I heard people saying Obama was the antichrist, but after hearing it again and again from different people I finally asked the Lord about it.

When I did He immediately showed me a vision, which I shared in my previous post, Obama Taking Action Against the Strongest of Fortresses.

The vision was based on Daniel 11:39, which states, “He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god.” Daniel was describing the actions of the antichrist, who would come at the time of the end, which happens to be now. (more…)

What Is A Real Christian Part 2

resting in JesusWe continue in 1 John and go against some false teaching about your spirit being saved. Let’s find out what God says about being like Jesus.

Can we ever be perfect like Him? You may be surprised.

What Is A Real Christian?

resting in JesusSome people don’t even know anymore what a Christian looks like unless it’s a Billy Graham or Mother Theresa.

But, it’s much more than what we appear to be to others in the world. It’s a relationship with God that has no substitutes.

No Other Reason

kingdomchild podcastMaybe you’ll think I’m being a little harsh on you Christian…

Maybe you need it. Maybe it’s time for you to get “real” with your relationship with Jesus.

If you don’t know Him like you think you do, you may be offended with this podcast.

Hey, if you don’t know Jesus “personally” or what Christmas is REALLY ALL ABOUT, please listen to this last podcast of 2014!

And… Merry Christmas!

 

Context Matters

joyI’m so tired of the “misinterpretation” of God’s Word! Why? Because wrong teaching results in wrong believing!

Understand God. Know His love for you! Know His will for you. Know His Word and you will know all of that!

Most Powerful Element On Earth 2

God's loveThis is the 2nd part of the “Most Powerful Element On Earth.” If you really want to be like Jesus, this is the way He told the disciples to walk.

It’s also the way He has called us to walk too…

How Do You KNOW That You Are REALLY Saved? The Erik Dattwyler Story

erik dattwyler storyHere is the very personal testimony of Erik Dattwyler. Listen to his very real and transparent testimony from a man who lived all his life without Christ… Until that day came. And the thought about where he was, in an empty and unfulfilled existence. (more…)

Defend Yourself Or Allow Him

hostageThis seems to be a “quandary” for many believers. A real question. A real dilemma.

Well, it can be if you decide His way is NOT enough or doesn’t apply to the seriousness of “today’s” circumstances.

This podcast explores what He said and if you decide to disagree with me, that’s OK.

You Choose This Day

abortion is wrongIt blows my mind how “high tech and low information” we can be as a society today.

The outcry against “Hobby Lobby,” winning a victory to not have to provide a pill to it’s female employees, that would KILL a child in it’s mothers womb has caused a sea of misinformation.

They haven’t stopped women from taking birth control pills or even stopped providing them to their employees, EXCEPT the kind that kills an embryo after it’s living inside the womb.

The liberals, including a woman liberal who will probably be running for president, have been spewing the most blatant misinformation possible about this entire issue.

And the worst part is, some Christians have “bought into the lie,” right along with the lost world! Here’s why…

Let The Spirit Fill And Control You

let the Spirit guide youSo many Christians have never learned what Paul was talking about to the church. He wrote to the Ephesians, the Philippians, the Corinthians and all the church about being a Christian.

Are you often asked if you are a Christian or are you NEVER asked?

Are You Willing To Hear 3

are you listeningThis is the last podcast on the message to the church as revealed to the Apostle John. The last three churches of chapters 2 & 3.

Let him who has ears to hear, listen to what the Spirit of God is saying to the church.

Are You Willing To Hear 2

are you listening 2The Book of Revelation is a “foretelling” of events soon to come on the whole earth, but before that series of events was foretold to the Apostle John, Jesus had several messages He communicated to the churches and the church overall.

In Part 2 of “Are You Willing To Hear,” we see what Jesus message was for us and the message to the churches.

Child Friendly Satan?

This recent story about the satanists asking Oklahoma for permission to put their statue up may sicken you like it does me!

It may seem absurd – or given the moral state of the nation, appropriate — but the grounds committee for the Oklahoma State Capitol, the Preservation Commission, has been asked by The Satanic Temple, a group from New York, to place a privately funded statue of Satan, complete with pentagram and two fawning children at Lucifer’s knee, on the Capitol grounds near a monument of the Ten Commandments. (more…)

Are You Willing To Hear?

are you listeningThe Book of Revelation is a “foretelling” of events soon to come on the whole earth, but before that series of events was foretold to the Apostle John, Jesus had several messages He communicated to the churches and the church overall.

This is what these next few podcasts will be focused on because they are still the messages Jesus wants to communicate to His church. His body. His beloved.

You Speak

JesusBaptized in “unbelief” is what too many Christians have been bathed in.

Most American Christians don’t know the Word because the things of this world have dominated their thoughts and activities.

Why is there no power in their lives? Why do they have little faith in God and the Lord Jesus Christ?

Why is this world as bad as it is, when Jesus told us He was giving us His authority to “bind and loose?”

Lord Lord

depart from meMany will say to Me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?”

This is NOT the time that you want to be in the “many” category…

Do you really understand what it means to be a Christian? Maybe not…

Grace For What?

nothing new under the sunEveryone is talking about the “Gospel of Grace…”

We have more TV preachers and pastors of large churches talking about the age of Grace we live in, but I hear a lot of people twisting the message too.

Just like Solomon said in Ecclesiastes, “There’s nothing new under the sun.” (“That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecc 1:9)

And just like the early church experienced the “ungodly mixed in with the “godly,” we have the same thing in these “last of the last days” church as well.

Many people have deceived themselves in thinking what the Grace of God is for… Jude felt it so necessary to warn the saints in the early church, that he changed his letter to remind them what God’s Grace is really for.

The Greatest Transformation and Proof of Jesus Christ

apostle paulI’m sure there are some who might argue this point with me, but I’m convinced that this one man has served so many purposes for Jesus Christ and the Church of Jesus Christ.

This was the man that God wanted all along to replace Judas, he just didn’t know it yet… until that day!

His conversion occurred on the road to Damascus, but his life and call took him to the entire world!

When you take a man with zeal and commitment and direct him in the right direction, the results are amazing!

Are You Good Soil Yet?

Hebrews 10:36 says: For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and [carry away] [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.

Patience is a difficult task for most people and it’s not much different for a growing believer in Jesus Christ. We have a hard time disassociating the “fast food” mindset we know, from our Christian walk and obedience to God.

With think “fast” is good, but God thinks “patience” is good. Jesus taught the crowd one day this parable…

Luke 8:5 A sower went out to sow seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the traveled path and was trodden underfoot, and the birds of the air ate it up.

6 And some [seed] fell on the rock, and as soon as it sprouted, it withered away because it had no moisture.

7 And other [seed] fell in the midst of the thorns, and the thorns grew up with it and choked it [off].

8 And some seed fell into good soil, and grew up and yielded a crop a hundred times [as great]. As He said these things, He called out, He who has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him consider and understand by hearing!

9 And when His disciples asked Him the meaning of this parable,

10 He said to them, To you it has been given to [come progressively to] know (to recognize and understand more strongly and clearly) the mysteries and secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so that, [though] looking, they may not see; and hearing, they may not comprehend. (And if we are His disciples today, we must receive the same instruction from Our Lord.)

11 Now the meaning of the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God.

Jesus loves 12 Those along the traveled road are the people who have heard; then the devil comes and carries away the message out of their hearts, that they may not believe (acknowledge Me as their Savior and devote themselves to Me) and be saved [here and hereafter].

13 And those upon the rock [are the people] who, when they hear [the Word], receive and welcome it with joy; but these have no root. They believe for a while, and in time of trial and temptation fall away (withdraw and stand aloof).

14 And as for what fell among the thorns, these are [the people] who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked and suffocated with the anxieties and cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not ripen (come to maturity and perfection).

15 But as for that [seed] in the good soil, these are [the people] who, hearing the Word, hold it fast in a just (noble, virtuous) and worthy heart, and steadily bring forth fruit with patience. (The requirement here is that when they hear the Word, they do it! And because they do, they steadily bring forth fruit!)

16 No one after he has lighted a lamp covers it with a vessel or puts it under a [dining table] couch; but he puts it on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light.

17 For there is nothing hidden that shall not be disclosed, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come out into the open.

18 Be careful therefore how you listen. For to him who has [spiritual knowledge] will more be given; and from him who does not have [spiritual knowledge], even what he thinks and guesses and supposes that he has will be taken away. (Knowledge here is the “revelation” of God’s Word from the Holy Spirit living in you and your sincere desire to understand and FOLLOW what He reveals. The good soil is a worthy heart.

The person that is only “thinking, guessing and supposing he is doing the formula, will have that understanding taken away from him. Because he does NOT have spiritual knowledge, only a form of godliness, like Paul wrote to Timothy.

When you’re choked and suffocated with the anxieties and cares or riches and pleasures of life, your fruit can’t come to maturity.

But you say, I’m very sincere about wanting to grow and know the Lord’s will for my life…

Sincere is NOT the same as “submitted” to His Lordship through “OBEDIENCE.” Then you’ll produce fruit as you abide in Him. You will steadily produce more fruit.

If you were able to be honest with yourself, you know there are probably areas in your life that you may still be holding onto. If Jesus doesn’t have your WHOLE heart, He’s not being allowed to be Lord of your heart. Jesus said, If you love Me, you will obey Me.”

John 14:21 The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.

Abide

abide in ChristThis world and it’s demands, pressures and distractions are the very reason Jesus told His disciples and us, why we must “abide.”

Can we do it? In a world full of fast rat race mentality? Jesus said you must, in order to be able to “bear fruit” that will bless you and Him.
