Faithful God

End Times and A Possible Global Church. What do you think?

Faith End Time ChurchNation of God, Lynn here.

So, I had an entirely different post planned and written for today. However, in my spirit, I can’t remain quiet. There are important issues of the day that are relevant to our faith, our home and our marriage. And so, with fear of rejection or criticism, I’m stepping out to share some things upon my heart. I ask that you read what I share and consider how these current day issues are a factor in your life, faith and within your marriage. And I also ask that you forgive me for being timid in the past as I avoided issues which are challenging for all of us to agree upon.

Finally, I ask that you discern what the Lord and His Word are speaking to you about the topics, share in the comments with love. As a body of believers, we need to discuss issues in the news and in our churches in order to resolve within ourselves our stance because very soon, our conviction may be the only thing that keeps us from falling down the slippery slope. And if you disagree with me, that’s okay. Please be kind in the comments.

So, where to start.

Today I feel absolutely overwhelmed to write about a process that I had with the Lord this morning. It has been the strangest experience and powerfully revelatory. So, I will walk you through it and then let’s talk about the implications in the comments.

Last night I awoke in the middle of the night. I distinctly heard two names. One of which I am familiar and one I’ve never heard before.

William H. Taft
William F. Barkley

Two Williams. WEIRD!!!  Can I just ask you, has this happened to you? Have you awakened hearing a person’s name whispered in your ear at night???? I’m tellin’ ya…. WEIRD.

Early this morning, with coffee in hand, I sat down in my prayer room and proceeded to Google search these names.

Whoa. To my astonishment, William F. Barkley, was a theologian who was born December 5, 1907 and died in 1978. The interesting thing about this Professor and pastor of the Church of Scotland is that he denied the reality of the Trinity. He was a prolific writer as well as teacher.

Interesting. Okay Lord.

Then I searched William Taft, twenty seventh president of the United States. Brilliant man who was a four-term President as well as a Supreme Court Justice. A long history of public service adorns his resume. However, after searching further I discovered he presented himself as a Christian but fully adopted the doctrines of the Unitarian church. BTW, I knew nothing about either of these people nor the Unitarian Church prior to this morning.

So, in my process with the Father I asked: Father, why are you showing me this?

His response: This is information about the future. Denial of the Trinity.

You see, both Williams had a singular similarity. They adopted doctrine that denies the truth of the Triune God. Unitarianism is central to the denial of the Trinity and it goes further to deny the deity of Christ as well as the denial of the supernatural.

Instantly I understood why the Lord placed these two names into my mind in the middle of the night and their commonality is the denial of the Trinity. The Lord went on to impress upon me that in the future, end-times, the church will unite under Unitarianism as it is the belief system that welcomes all faiths.

The Lord created this name puzzle with the Williams to be so unlikely, so crazy, that I would have zero doubt as to the message and that it was of the Lord.

Gang, I rarely hear names in the middle of the night, especially names of people I don’t even know.

Sitting in my prayer room, I grieved as I thought about the millions that will be deceived. Unitarianism began under the original name, Arian…. Good grief… (Arian Nation, Nazism sprang to mind.) The denial of the Trinity, then denial of Christ as Deity and finally when all possibility of the supernatural realms is tossed out, the gates of hell open and all faiths will unite. If Christ is merely a human man like the rest of us, then the power of the cross is a lie.

Prayer Notes End-Times Prophecy
BTW, My notes from my prayer time.

However, in this moment on the couch in my prayer room, a vigorous truth arose in my spirit. Here it is:

The truth about Jesus is that He is different than any other man who walked this earth. He was born of a virgin. The seed of God is incorruptible and wholly pure, divine. The DNA is pure and unaltered and the perfection of mankind, thus his blood sacrifice meets every demand of the law and the prophets. He is one of the three in the Trinity. He is deity. He is the Word. He is the Lamb who took away the sins of the world.

HALLELUJAH!

Why this history lesson? My SUMite friends, awareness is our profound gift as we face the largest battle in the church in this current day, deception. If we are unaware of the schemes of satan, we are doomed to fall into this big, beautiful, welcoming, church that still allows me to be a Christian but at the core denies the power and truth of Christ.

I will tell you this, shallow believers will run with passion to the doors. Our unbelieving spouses will smile and say, “Now, this sounds like a church I could attend.”

I’m not kidding. These scenarios are very real for our lives. So…… Now, here is the difficult part of this message. You are aware. Now you are accountable.

What can we do. Praise Jesus that He is showing His Bride the truth. He is actively and with wild efforts, such as speaking names I don’t know into my ear at night, making us aware of what is coming. He is urging us to prayer and to seek out the truths and have them LOCKED IN our heart, mind, soul and strength.

Pray for wisdom. Pray for discernment. Pray for revelation (Ephesians 1:18) Pray that God’s truth will be made known and deception defeated. In Jesus name.

Thoughts?

Thanks for allowing me to share some of my fantastic adventures with our King! 

On Friday: Censorship…. Ya, let’s keep the controversial subjects rolling.

One final note. Of course, what I have shared is a possibility that God is making me aware. Our prayers can delay, deny and cancel the works of the enemy. To that end is why I believe the Lord is showing me this information. Let's pray. Let's believe. Let's triumph. Hugs, Lynn

*****

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!

Are We In The End-Times?

Yes and no..


2 peter 3 9Recently I received a message through Facebook asking a question about the end-times. I feel as though there is so much fear in the Body of Christ about the end-times. So today, I want to share the questions and my reply. I pray it brings you peace and great HOPE. Hugs, Lynn

Lynn, how close do you think we are to the Tribulation and Jesus’ return?

Hi my friend, this is a difficult question as so many people have vastly different ideas of where we are in God's timeline. I will quickly share my thoughts about it all. PLEASE PRAY about what I share and ask the Holy Spirit to clarify and bring you peace.

Firstly, I'm of the opinion that God is on the move. I'm witnessing the "church" awaken from a slumber and GREAT things are happening in the Kingdom. And I believe we the church, are on the beginning edge of revival. So, I don't believe Jesus would return before this assigned season of the church is complete. I think there are many, many more souls God is after and I'm expecting to see Asia, Russia and many more countries come to faith. I'm praying for one billion. And I believe it is destined to happen. Salvations and gifting of the Spirit are happening in these countries and especially in the Muslim world. I’m convinced that God wouldn't cut short this revival. It simply doesn’t make sense. God isn’t a God who is confused or changes His plans on a whim.

I'm also of the opinion that as the church, God is asking us to pray for mercy instead of judgement. That is why the Bible said the blood of Christ speaks a better word than that of Abel. God wants to extend mercy through the church and not judgement.

Finally, the temple in Jerusalem must be rebuilt. That has not happened yet. I might re-evaluate my thoughts on this subject and the timing if reconstruction begins. But I truly foresee at least another 100 years ahead for the church.

Finally, I believe God gave a reprieve to the USA and extended another 10 years to His people to prosper us and to grow us up. He wants a mature, strong and fully equipped Bride. We aren't there yet. But Jesus is training all of us and we are on the “Fast-track.”

My friend, get ready because you are part of this amazing plan and your purpose in the entire history of the world is so very important. I truly believe this! Whatever challenge you are facing right now is making you stronger and ready to march for the Kingdom of God. SO much good is ahead for you. Hope this helps. Love you. Lynn

I'm Ashamed That I Prayed So Small

Isaiah 58The cell phone buzzed on my desk. Glancing at the name, I whispered a quick prayer, O Lord, help me to say the right things.

“Hello.”

“Mom, I want to tell you what happened this morning at church. It’s changed everything.”

NOT what I was expecting.

You see for nine months I’ve been praying for my collage-aged daughter. I’ve spent many hours on the phone with her over the months as she worked through the difficult feelings that accompany a breakup with a boy. She had good days, often I didn’t hear from her then. The bad days arrived and the phone would ring. Tears, sadness, confusion. I often would say the wrong thing and make it worse before I would struggle with word to make it better.

My heart has been broken for her and I grieved as she has been stuck in such a difficult emotional place and her self-esteem has been hammered. Her faith in God has been challenged to the point she questioned the truth of it all. Gulp!

Prayed. I’ve prayed and prayed for months for her. Spoken scriptures in prayer for her. Prayed with her and proclaimed promises from the Word to her on the phone. Each morning in my prayer time I bring her before God asking for Him to heal her heart. Recently my Friday morning prayer group, that meets at my house, prayed for her and her situation.

I’ve prayed so long and finally I began praying a prayer out of desperation, “Lord, send her a new boyfriend. Someone who will be kind and take away this pain.” This seemed like a reasonable prayer and certainly made sense as an acceptable outcome.

Until this phone call. Ugh!

“Mom, the most incredible thing happened. The message at church this morning was all about prayer. About praying and bringing God into our world. Mom, it was in that moment that God showed up. The Holy Spirit spoke so clearly to me to pray for my ex-boyfriend." She went on to share, "We are all just broken people crying out for help. He’s broken. I’m broken. My heart is moved to pray."

I’m stunned in silence as I listen. 

She continues, “All the anger inside of me disappeared in a moment and compassion flooded in. All I wanted to do was just ask him how I could pray for him. And then, truly just listen. People are desperate to be heard. I want to listen with a full heart and then pray for him in that moment.”

“O Baby girl.” I gulped back tears and could barely breathe.

“Mom, then I started thinking about all of my friends.” She lists several names, each who are also struggling deeply in their lives. “I want to ask them, ‘How can I pray for you?’ then really listen and pray for them. I know how to pray and for the first time I’m not afraid to just do it.”

“And most importantly, God showed up. He came to me in the moment and my faith is restored.”

As I listened to this young woman who I’ve prayed for nine months, my eyes teared up. “Caitie, it’s just so astounding. I’m humbled. I’m happy.

I prayed for her to not lose this moment and to write down this moment and read it in moments of doubt. “I love you sweetie.”

“Love you too Mom.”

Why am I sharing this story? For several reasons but mostly as a lesson to myself.

You see, I prayed for this kid way to small. I’m ashamed I even spoke words like, give her a new boyfriend. As if God needs suggestions from me…. God showed up bigger than I could have dreamed up or hoped. He knew EXACTLY what the right thing was for my daughter.

As I spent time in prayer the next morning, the Holy Spirit gently took me through some thoughts about how to pray going forward. I need to pray things for those I love such as, “Lord, encounter their heart. Move in love in their lives. Show them who You are and reveal Your great plans for them. Lord, protect them from the evil one.” And then all I could pray for all my family that morning was:

Lord, encounter Caitie’s heart more. Lord, encounter my husband hearts. Lord encounter their hearts. Encounter their hearts. Your wisdom is so great. And I’m sorry I pray such small prayers. Forgive me and teach me to pray Big. In Jesus name. Amen

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!
