A Vision: Moscow’s Plans are on the Table

Putin addresses Federal Assembly

When the Ukrainian crisis began and as I observed its progress, I remember the vision I had last year, particularly on Nov. 1. As I was praying in the evening of Nov. 1, I saw the Russian President Vladimir Putin behind a rostrum speaking before an audience and I heard, “Moscow’s plans are on the table.” I thought  that was supposed to be Obama’s role and involuntarily I whispered, “power shift.”

Many of last year’s events particularly in the Middle East showed significant changes in the arena of world dominion. America through President Obama bowed to Russia when it turned back from the much-anticipated military intervention in Syria after the latter’s use of chemical weapons supposedly a red line set by Obama himself. When Putin stepped in with his strategy, Obama readily jumped in and followed the Russian leader. America also leaned towards Russia’s stand on Iran when Obama took the diplomatic course to settle the dispute on Iran’s nuclear weapons production. Disillusioned Egypt and Saudi Arabia found new alliance with Russia; and it is no dispute that China and North Korea stand behind Russia. Forbes list of most powerful people in 2013 even placed Russia’s Vladimir Putin on top and ahead of America’s Barack Obama. Now that Crimea successfully ceded to Russia against the will of the US, EU and the UN, the power shift has become rightly obvious. Putin defies Obama and the European leaders, mocks their toothless sanctions and sarcastically blasted them in his speech before the Russian parliament about the allegedly ‘cold war’ tactics of the US and the West.

The media is full of stories about Russia and Vladimir Putin making their come back on the world stage, asserting with determination to become the new world leader as America continues to decline. Obama has no backbone as incumbent world leader and so the determined Putin has seen a golden opportunity and craftily made his way up with highly visible results.

This Ukrainian or Russian drama elicited different reactions from across the globe. As I read one news coverage of this event, the more than 1000 comments show how divided the people are in the issue especially in their choice between Putin and Obama. What I particularly notice is that Putin’s aggressive and decisive move in the Ukraine highlighted Obama’s weakness in standing up to an issue before the watching world. Significantly, many think that Putin is better than Obama and look to Russia’s President now as the more qualified, less evil and more reliable leader than Obama. Even the alternative news media tend to paint this picture as they expose the alleged covert plans of the ‘powers behind’ to set up Russia in this so-called Ukraine crisis so they could justify war for money and further control of the world. While I believe that this could be true, I discourage, especially the Body of Christ, to buy the idea that Putin is a better leader than Obama and others. Vladimir Putin may show off a different face but he still has the same heart as the rest. He is driven by the same motivation- power and control of the world. This reminds me of a word of caution from the Lord sometime last year.

As I was reading an ad email about the ‘Illuminati’ and ‘Free Masons’ who supposedly run the world behind the scenes, how and who they control and make puppets of, and how many of those puppets don’t even know that they are controlled; and as I was contemplating whether or not to buy the material, the Lord spoke and I heard in my spirit, “Who is controlling who?”

I paused and prayed and the Lord impressed that these stories although useful, are not really necessary for regardless how complex the matrix of deception is, those who think and are proud that they are in control of the world are actually themselves simply puppets of Satan who is the ultimate deceiver that controls them all. They actually top the list of the deceived as they are so convinced that they have the power to turn the world according to their wishes and make it their own; but God laughs at them as they will eventually end up in destruction along with the devil and the demons when the Messiah returns. The Father still controls the universe He created and He will intervene at the right time. As people of God, we must not waste time trying to discover every bit of mystery that those deceived and proud ‘manipulators’ are attributed to have, for the Truth that He teaches us is enough to make us aware. The Word has enough wisdom and truth that expose the evil that is so prevalent today. Instead of watching for ‘conspiracy theories,’ let us read our Bibles, pray, and seek Him for He is the One who can and will show us the true faces of these people that we may avoid following and trusting them. He reveals to us what lies behind what we see and hear with our physical senses that we may not be deceived and adopt the world’s view of the unfolding events.

This recent development in Ukraine is very crucial. The bear is awake. When will it pounce on its prey? Biblical prophecies are unfolding quickly. Repeatedly I wrote about America’s imminent fall; let me say now that you must listen to the warnings. All true watchmen and prophets of the Lord are getting the same message of imminent judgment so I am praying that you will stop hardening your hearts and listen. The world is on the brink. Soon the Messiah will return to establish righteousness on earth; but before that happens, evil will just keep rising. I am not trying to scare anyone but if you’re scared to the point that you will call on the Lord now and give your life to Him, I will be very grateful. I will speak the truth even if it offends for, yes, He is the only One who can truly secure you in these last days.

For the Bride of Christ who faithfully wait for His return, continue to watch and pray diligently. For the complacent Church, it is time to shake up and fill your lamp lest the Bridegroom comes and finds you asleep.

Matthew 24:29-44

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it[d] is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,[e] but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour[f] your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

Love in Yeshua HaMashiach,

A Word for America: His Judgments will Come Swiftly Like a Flood!

The Lord gave me a word and a vision on Feb. 16 about His judgments on America which will come swiftly like a flood. My busyness with the children’s school activities, however, kept me away from the cyber world and writing was not my priority. I didn’t know that despite my preoccupation, the Lord would confirm the message and the vision through an actual flood. This flood may not be that damaging but I have no doubt that it is a sign that the Lord meant what He said and showed me in the vision.

Yesterday I happened to see quickly on Fox News the storm that caused flooding in some parts of California. Still, I didn’t remember the message until last night as I went over the prayer points from the ‘Intercessors for Israel’ and read the prayer for America. I was quickened to check my notes on the vision and the word.

In the morning of Feb. 16 as I was praying, I heard in my spirit, “He shall bring judgment on America and will do it quickly.” Later in the evening of the same day as I was interceding for the nation, I saw a vision of a flood. First, I felt and saw myself in the middle of a riverbed when something like a fence  rose up to keep me from being swept by the water that suddenly turned into a raging flood. As I was safely watching the other side of the fence in the middle of the river, I could imagine how it was when the Israelites crossed the Red Sea- waters on either side as they escaped from Egypt. I prayed on and again saw another raging water, muddy flood, coming from the north. It easily swept away everything on its path. I gasped as I saw a man, then another, and another, swept away quickly and helplessly. I shivered as I felt like I was seeing the flood in Noah’s time. I saw not an ordinary flood but a deluge. Immediately I prayed and asked the Lord if what I saw was going to happen literally. The still small voice of the Lord said, “My judgments will come swiftly like a flood.”

The Lord’s judgment on America will come not necessarily by a literal flood although it could be one of those, for on Feb. 20 as I was praying for America, I heard again the voice of the Spirit saying, “Those destined for death, to death! Those destined for captivity, to captivity! Those destined for the sword, to the sword!”

As if those words were not enough that when I opened my Bible after praying, I landed straight to Jeremiah 43 and my eyes caught immediately the same message in verse 11.

I know in my heart that God will soon bring America to her knees for her many sins. But in spite of the revelations that the Lord has given me, it is not my pleasure to talk about these things for truly they are sobering; and I am not writing these things to attract readers but to warn and warn sternly that America’s time is really short. How short that is, I do not know, but that is what I am hearing from the Lord. His judgment will come swiftly and when it does, it will sweep away everything and everyone on its path save for the remnants whom God has promised to protect and keep. I speak of these things with certainty because that is what the Father has shown me consistently. One serious offense that warrants the certainty of His judgment is abortion. On Feb. 10 as I was taking a nap, I heard that for every baby aborted in the land He will make the nation pay. Another serious offense is sexual perversion and immorality; then most recently, I heard again “As America has done to Israel…” Needless to say that what Obama and Kerry are doing to Israel in their efforts to divided the land is actually poking God in the eye. The list can go on and on.

Sometimes I choose not to think of what America is doing for it is very depressing to see the nation fall deeper and deeper into darkness as the leaders headed by Obama continue to stir the nation into the wrong direction heading straight to the devil’s bosom. I am sincerely praying that this message will sink and you will consider your ways before the Father. He is merciful and is willing to forgive if you come to Him in the name of His only begotten Son, Yeshua/Jesus the Messiah. He alone can save you from what is coming to America. If you have read the previous articles on this blog, you may recall that the Lord gave us the message that, “It’s time to get into the ark.” If you have not done so yet, I pray that you will do it now for you don’t know what comes tomorrow as America is fast falling from His grace while she continues to blatantly deny and push Him away.

Isaiah 59:1-20

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened,
That it cannot save;
Nor His ear heavy,
That it cannot hear.
But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
And your sins have hidden His face from you,
So that He will not hear.
For your hands are defiled with blood,
And your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken lies,
Your tongue has muttered perversity.

No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
And from that which is crushed a viper breaks out.

Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
And the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.

Therefore justice is far from us,
Nor does righteousness overtake us;
We look for light, but there is darkness!
For brightness, but we walk in blackness!
10 We grope for the wall like the blind,
And we grope as if we had no eyes;
We stumble at noonday as at twilight;
We are as dead men in desolate places.
11 We all growl like bears,
And moan sadly like doves;
We look for justice, but there is none;
For salvation, but it is far from us.
12 For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
And our sins testify against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know them:
13 In transgressing and lying against the Lord,
And departing from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
14 Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
15 So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.

Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him
That there was no justice.

16 He saw that there was no man,
And wondered that there was no intercessor;
Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him;
And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
17 For He put on righteousness as a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing,
And was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18 According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay,
Fury to His adversaries,
Recompense to His enemies;
The coastlands He will fully repay.
19 So shall they fear
The name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.

20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion,
And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,”
Says the Lord.

Stay tuned for I have yet to write what else I have seen. Most importantly, keep your eyes on the Lord and stay in His presence. Pray and seek His instruction for it is highly necessary that you walk in His will as the world around us staggers until He comes.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

A Vision: Roger Waters and BDS

When I read the news on Roger Waters slamming Scarlett Johansson and Neil Young on their refusal to boycott Israel, I remembered the vision I had back in 2011 which I wrote in my old blog. Today, as I read another story on this on Arutz Sheva, the Holy Spirit strongly prompted me to write the vision and publish it here. First, here are the news:

Here’s the vision I wrote in June 2011.

Around 6:30 in the morning on June 3 while still enjoying the comfort of my bed half awake, the Lord startled me with a snapshot of ‘pink men’ (the color of their skin was pink) getting out of their car. Along with the image was the thought that these men represent a group, and spontaneously I heard in my spirit, ‘Global Council.’ The whole scene just lasted a few seconds but it was enough to fully awaken me. With eyes wide open, I pondered what could these pink men and Global Council mean?

I went straight to the computer and searched for “Pink” and “Global Council.” I was equally surprised at what I found as I was with the vision. The search terms led me straight to the blog “Global Affairs Council,” particularly showing the following article which is still there today. (Note: Obviously you won’t get the same result today as I got it more than two years ago.)

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters and American Folk Music Legend Pete Seeger Joined in Support of BDS

I had no doubt that the vision was about this because throughout 2011 I often received a word or a vision that concerned Israel. This occurred after the Lord showed me in a dream that Christians should pray for and stand with Israel. Before the vision, I honestly didn’t know anything about BDS and of Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters’ campaign. Truth is, before God opened my spiritual eyes and ears, I didn’t know much about Israel’s standing in the world and the world’s negative attitude towards this tiny nation. Only when the Lord started showing me things about Israel which led me to search and read did I begin to understand what’s going on in the Land of Promise. Most importantly, God’s revelations to me made me fully appreciate His great love and mercy for Israel and the Jewish people.

This vision does not only tell us to intercede against this ‘Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions’ (BDS) on Israel that Roger Waters is supporting and promoting, but this is also solid proof that God is watching over this nation. He knows exactly what her enemies are doing and none of their plans, schemes and devises escape Him. I don’t need to remind the Christians that the Palestinians’ and the world’s claim about the Land of Israel and the Jews are distorted. The Jews are not illegal occupants of Israel for God who owns the land gave it to them as their inheritance in view of the covenant He made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel).

I also would like to remind the Christians who claim to be people of God but still stand on the opposite when it comes to issues about Israel and the Jews. Make up your mind for God sees your heart. Do not make it an excuse that they are as sinful as the rest of the world for the Father knows that very well. Also, this is not about siding with Israelis against the Palestinians as I have written that likewise God wants us to intercede for the latter. This is about Him. Our role is to pray according to His will. As ones saved by grace through the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, we are called to side and stand with Him in His plans and purposes for Israel and the Jews. God appointed and raised this tiny nation to manifest His Sovereignty and power to the lost world. Through them He will accomplish His plans and purposes for all mankind. The second coming of the Messiah is not only for the gentile Christians but for the full restoration of Israel and the Jews for all the world to see. He will glorify His Name and show to the unbelieving and deceived world that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God who created the heavens and the earth lives.

Philippians 2:10-11

10 that in honor of the name given Yeshua,
every knee will bow
in heaven, on earth and under the earth —
11 and every tongue will acknowledge[a]
that Yeshua the Messiah is Adonai
to the glory of God the Father.

For all watchmen and intercessors, this campaign to boycott Israel is something that God wants us to pray for and intercede because this is a scheme to pressure her leaders to give in to the demands of the enemy to give up and divide the land that the Father freely gave them.

Psalm 122:6

Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim;
may those who love you prosper.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

==============================================================================

There is no coincidence in God. What I just received in my email from Jerusalem 365 after publishing this article is His confirmation of what I shared above; that the Jews are not illegally occupying the Land of Israel (Palestine as the world wrongly claims) for it is their inheritance from Him as He promised to their forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob:

Ezekiel 47:14

You shall inherit the Land, each tribe equal to his brother, about which I raised My hand to give it to your forefathers; this Land shall become yours as an inheritance.

From the Father’s Heart: Jerusalem, Jerusalem!

If you have read this post immediately as published or if you are reading this now, you may wonder how quickly I changed the title. Well, as I published and sent the notice to some, the Lord quickly corrected me. This is not about the song nor just about Jerusalem; but this is about His heart for Jerusalem. This is about Him. I must obey.

7-28

Isarel365

Isaiah 62:1

62 For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
And her salvation as a lamp that burns.

The Lord speaks His heart in truly amazing ways. I am always in awe every time He reveals or shares something. I woke up around 2:30 a.m. today from hearing the song “Jerusalem Shel Zahav” or “Jerusalem of Gold” as performed by Ofra Haza. The last time I listened to the song was almost a year ago and never remembered it until I heard it in my spirit this morning.

The song kept ringing in my heart while I continued to lay quietly in bed. After some time of listening to it continually playing, I prayed for the peace of Jerusalem. Then the Lord spoke which I heard clearly in my spirit:

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often I long to gather your children as a hen gathers her chicks!” 

This, to me, speaks clearly how deeply the Lord loves Jerusalem. It speaks volumes of what is in His heart for His land and people. He has not and never will reject Israel as some Christians wrongly believe. His covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is an everlasting covenant. The following passages are just a few among many that show the steadfastness of God’s commitment, His everlasting covenant to Israel.

Psalms 137:5

If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
Let my right hand forget its skill!

Jeremiah 31:35-37

35 Thus says the Lord,
Who gives the sun for a light by day,
The ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night,
Who disturbs the sea,
And its waves roar
(The Lord of hosts is His name):

36 “If those ordinances depart
From before Me, says the Lord,
Then the seed of Israel shall also cease
From being a nation before Me forever.”

37 Thus says the Lord:

“If heaven above can be measured,
And the foundations of the earth searched out beneath,
I will also cast off all the seed of Israel
For all that they have done, says the Lord.

Jerusalem is God’s holy city. The Messiah, when He returns, will reign from there. He will bring Jerusalem and all Israel back to Himself and establish His Name in their midst for all nations to see. When I was in Jerusalem during the 2011 Feast of Tabernacles, I had the chance to climb up the Mount of Olives where the Lord Jesus used to walk and minister with His disciples. On the spot where He taught His disciples to pray (the Lord’s Prayer as it is known), the Lord spoke to me as I was wondering why the Roman Catholic Church is in control of the Biblical sites. My heart was very heavy as I realized how difficult it was for the Jews to believe that He is their Messiah when in His Name they were killed in the most brutal ways. How badly He is misrepresented among His people!

I walked away from the crowd who were busy doing what normal tourists do, and went to the garden alone. I poured out the heaviness in my heart and the Lord came strongly in that moment. I heard Him in my spirit, “See, my land is divided. It has been fragmented to this day.”

While Jerusalem is not yet physically divided between the Jews and the Palestinians, and while we mostly think and pray only against physically dividing the land of Israel especially Jerusalem, God sees it as already divided. It has been spiritually divided. He is interested in not only keeping the land intact, but making Jerusalem, the manifestation of His Throne here on earth, spiritually united in Him.

That word sank deep into my heart that it remained in me for a long time. Even during my flight back to the Philippines, all I could think were those words. Hearing the song “Jerusalem of Gold” in this special way and letting me hear His lament as written above reminded me of this experience in Israel and the words He spoke to me that pierced my heart.

If you fear and honor God, if you truly love Him, may you take seriously His words about Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews if you have not done so yet.

Genesis 12:3

I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Zechariah 2:8

For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eyes.

May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you!

Love in Yeshua HaMashiach,

A Call to Intercede: Intifida is on the Rise!

Update: January 28, 2014

This morning, around 3:00, the Lord woke me up with this message: “You are not merely dealing with Muslims; you are dealing with a stronghold.”

When I heard it, I knew what He meant. The Lord was referring to Islam and I said, “Yes, Lord, I believe it is the stronghold of Islam that we are dealing with.”

It made me realize that the call to intercede is more than just praying against the ‘planned intifada,’ but praying against the stronghold behind it. It is not an armed wrestling with the radicals but rather fighting against it in the Spirit through prayer and intercession. As I pondered on the message, I remembered His Word through Paul in the following:

Ephesians 6:12

12 For we are not struggling against human beings, but against the rulers, authorities and cosmic powers governing this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For although we do live in the world, we do not wage war in a worldly way; because the weapons we use to wage war are not worldly. On the contrary, they have God’s power for demolishing strongholds. We demolish arguments and every arrogance that raises itself up against the knowledge of God; we take every thought captive and make it obey the Messiah. 

In obedience to the Father, I prayed in the way that He wanted. Every Muslim, moderate or radical, is in bondage to the spirit of Islam. God wants to free these people from such stronghold and the only way we can fight against such deep-seated power of darkness is in the Spirit through Yeshua/Jesus the Messiah. The Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, our Father, is more than able to set them free as He will. But it is His desire that we, His children will join with Him by prayer and intercession. Prophetic intercession accomplishes the things that God desires. As the Father revealed His heart on this, He will certainly answer our prayers for the Muslims whom the devil has so deceived and used to fight against Him through Israel and the Jews; and yes, the Christians.

May the Lord bless and keep us all. May He find us faithful when He comes in His glory and majesty!

===================================================================================

Update: January 27, 2014

These news stories on Arutz Sheva tell us that INTIFADA is truly on the rise as the Lord revealed on January 12.

Fatah Leader Calls for Armed Uprising

…Fatah Central Committee member Tawfik Tirawi reportedly told Al-Miadin that there will be no new Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza in the near future, and not even in 20 years. For that reason, he said, Fatah must resume the “violent uprising” against Israel – meaning terrorism.

Hamas Leader: Third Intifada ‘A Matter of Time’

…“The intifada will not wait for anyone,” warned Yousef. “If it doesn’t happen today then it will happen tomorrow, if not this month then next month. Eventually – just as the First Intifada and the Al-Aqsa Intifada broke out – another one could break out.”

Praise God for His undivided attention over His land, Eretz Yisrael, and for the watchmen whom He appointed to call on Him and not rest until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Psalm 121: 4

No, the guardian of Isra’el
never slumbers or sleeps.

Isaiah 62:6-7

I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;
They shall never hold their peace day or night.
You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent,
And give Him no rest till He establishes
And till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Let us continue to intercede and pray that any terror plots from all sides be foiled just as the one in this news:

BreakingIsraelNews: Al-Qaeda Plot to Blow Up US Embassy and Jerusalem Convention Center Foiled

Could this foiled terrorism be the one that the Holy Spirit prompted me to pray in the early evening of January 12? Well, only He knows; but as mentioned in this article, the Lord intervened and shifted my prayer to pray for a certain terrorist. Before praying for the Lord’s intervention in the life of this terrorist, I heard myself praying that any terror plot be exposed and thwarted wherever and whenever it was going to be. And whoever the terrorist God wanted to touch, I am continually praying for him/her. I may not know who this particular terrorist is, but I believe that he/she will eventually find the Messiah. This is happening daily among Muslims because God is at work. Below are stories of Muslims coming to the Lord Jesus Christ:

===========================================================================

As the death of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon filled the news, the Lord gave me a message. On January 12, the day after the former PM’s passing, the Lord spoke this word to me very clearly as I was going to sleep after praying: “Intifada is on the rise.” On January 18, this news from DEBKAfile came out which obviously confirms the message:

Israelis engage in diplo-babble instead of preparing for Palestinian diplomatic intifada in April

Excerpt:

Abbas is fond of telling everyone that he is against terrorism. He is therefore setting up a “diplomatic intifada” – without the violence the Palestinians demonstrated in their former assaults on the Jewish state. However, debkafile’s counter-terror sources have found that, in recent weeks, Abbas and his security agencies have lost control of suburbs in the West Bank towns under their rule, and especially the 19 refugee camps which have been taken over by local armed militias.
These militias, as well as Hamas, Jihad Islami and other violent bands, are getting organized for a fresh outbreak of terrorist operations including suicide bombers.

In the Nablus and Bethlehem areas of the West Bank, some Palestinian gangs are also preparing to shoot Qassam rockets at Jerusalem and other Israel towns.

In the year 2000, the Israeli powers-that-be, led by the IDF Chief of staff at the time, Shaul Mofaz, kept Palestinian preparations for their intifada away from the public notice, so as not to upset peace diplomacy.

Israel is living amidst terrorism and intifada so it is no wonder to me that God would speak those things. Former PM Ariel Sharon was Israel’s war hero; and he was in spite of the media’s reckless and biased stories about him. Now that the former PM who is known for his valiance during the past wars that Israel fought since its statehood in 1948, and the present security threats as the hostile neighbors continue to advance their agenda to destroy Israel, it is not surprising that another intifada would ensue. His passing away was greatly celebrated by the enemies and it is just normal for them to think of another uprising against Israel now that he is gone. I believe, however, that this is not what the Father wants and so the warning that we may intercede for both Israel and her enemies.

arielsharon1928-2014Ariel Sharon: Debunking the Media Myths

For those who understand how deeply rooted the hatred of the Palestinians and their kin towards Israel, it  seems futile and impossible to reach out to them in love and peace. And yes, the peace negotiations that the US Secretary of State John Kerry is relentlessly pushing falls short of the kind that the Lord wants. Peace with Israel’s determined enemies is beyond human ability to attain and it is a Biblical fact that such peace cannot be achieved since this hatred towards the Jewish nation is born from the pit of hell. This is not simply a struggle between two conflicting people but one rooted in the devil’s hatred for God.  It is Satan’s hatred and rebellion towards God through these people against Israel with whom He made an everlasting covenant.

Genesis 17:4-8

“As for me, this is my covenant with you: you will be the father of many nations. Your name will no longer be Avram [exalted father], but your name will be Avraham [father of many], because I have made you the father of many nations. I will cause you to be very fruitful. I will make nations of you, kings will descend from you.

 “I am establishing my covenant between me and you, along with your descendants after you, generation after generation, as an everlasting covenant, to be God for you and for your descendants after you. I will give you and your descendants after you the land in which you are now foreigners, all the land of Kena‘an, as a permanent possession; and I will be their God.”

1 Chronicles 16:13-18; 36

13 You descendants of Isra’el his servant,
you offspring of Ya‘akov, his chosen ones:
14 he is Adonai our God,
His judgments are everywhere on earth.
15 Remember his covenant forever,
the word he commanded to a thousand generations,
16 the covenant he made with Avraham;
the oath he swore to Yitz’chak
17 and established as a law for Ya‘akov,
for Isra’el as an everlasting covenant:
18 “To you I will give the land of Kena‘an
as your allotted heritage.”

36 Blessed be Adonai, the God of Isra’el,
from eternity past to eternity future!”

As is written, the battle of Armageddon will take place and its purpose is to wipe off Israel from the face of the earth. Although the result will be victory for Israel as the Messiah himself will come to rescue her, we cannot just sit down and relax and wait for it to happen. The Lord wants us to do something – to pray for the peace of Jerusalem; to pray for them that hate Israel. God who is merciful and just is also concerned for the salvation of these children of Abraham whom the enemy has so deceived. I felt the burden of the Lord for them when on the same evening of January 12 as I was praying, the Holy Spirit took over and led me to pray for a terrorist. I paused as I became aware of what I was praying for. Then I realized that the Lord was praying through me, for a certain terrorist. Whoever he is, I do not know; I just let the Lord move. What seems impossible to us is possible with God; what we cannot naturally do, God can, supernaturally. So, as we pray for Israel in this critical hour, let us also Pray for the Other Sons of Abraham. Let us pray against the real enemy behind all these conflicts among Abraham’s blood descendants.

Psalm 122:6

Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim;
may those who love you prosper.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

Philippines, nation of idolatry, hear the Word of the Lord!

Update January 14, 2014

PNoy Declares January 20 National Day of Prayer and Solidarity

MANILA, Philippines – Following the series of calamities that tested the country’s resilience last year, President Benigno Aquino III has declared January 20 as National Day of Prayer and Solidarity…

…”Our unbreakable spirit and ability to recover find root in our firm belief in a benevolent God who has the perfect plan for all of us. These tragedies tell us that despite all our efforts, we are indeed powerless without God,” the President added.

It is very encouraging to hear the highest official of the land, the President of the Philippines, acknowledge that without God the nation is indeed powerless. I pray that everyone will take heed of his call to prayer. I pray that this day of national prayer be done according to His will. I pray that He will open the eyes of the Filipinos to give up false godliness and idolatry as we humble ourselves as a nation before Him. I pray that the True Church will take the lead in putting into action the Word of the Lord in 2 Chronicles 7:14 quoted twice in this article.

For all the readers and followers of this blog, please pray for the Philippines; and I thank everyone who is doing so, from the depths of my heart. The Lord bless and keep us all!

==============================================================================

My heart is heavy today as I see the ongoing Feast of the Black Nazarene on TV.  Since last week I have been praying for the Philippines as the pagan and idolatrous feast days are here again for another year. It is heartbreaking that majority of the Filipinos are blind about what they are doing for the religious idols of this nation. We have experienced real devastating calamities last year topped by Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) which left many places in Eastern Visayas in dire conditions to this day; yet as a nation, we have not awakened to the truth about our spiritual condition before the eyes of the Almighty.

As it Happens: Feast of the Black Nazarene

While the Filipinos blindly or ignorantly think that doing these religious feasts are pleasing God as they parade the idols they so believe as the image of God, the truth is that they are actually hurting Him. My dream on January 12, 2012 showed how such idolatry looks like in the spirit. This is what I wrote of the dream in “My Encounters with the Lord:”

On January 12, 2012, I dreamed of the Lord in His human form. I was with Him, singing praises to Him while He watched and listened intently. I remember singing 3 songs to Him. When I sang “He is Exalted,” His expression changed. His meek human eyes transformed into the fierce eyes of a lion. Then I thought, “Truly, He is the Lion of Judah.” Then the Lord hugged me. Oh, what a blessing I felt!

In another scene, I saw the Lord lying in an enclosed carriage. His head was bleeding profusely from the crown which was the crown of the “Sto. Nino.”

Note: The Sinulog Festival in Cebu which features the Sto. Nino is on the third Sunday of this month.

This picture below is similar to what I saw in the dream except that instead of a graven image, the Lord Jesus was Himself inside the carriage. He was very much alive and bleeding because of the crown stuck upon His head.

The Retovado Review: Good Friday, Bago City, Negros Occidental

Idolatry is not only abominable to God; it is deeply hurting Him. It is like killing Him over and over or making Him dead as I felt in the dream while He’s actually alive. My heart aches as I recall the sobering scene in my dream. People were so insensitive and blind that they didn’t seem to see what I witnessed of the Lord inside the encased carriage. Filipinos wake up! You are not pleasing Him nor worshiping Him with such abomination of parading the graven images and going crazy over those idols as if they truly can do you good. See for yourself what God says of graven images and bowing to them.

The first 3 commandments (Exodus 20:2-7) that God Himself wrote on stone tablets and handed to Moses are centered about who He is and how men should honor Him; and what He does to those who violate those commands. Doing those things are in fact hatred towards God.

Exodus 20

And God spake all these words, saying,

I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal.

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Sadly, the Roman Catholic Church altered the commandments of God significantly by removing the second commandment (Exodus 20:4-6) that speaks against making and bowing to a graven image of any likeness either in heaven above or on earth below. The unsuspecting masses believe that there is nothing wrong with the 10 Commandments as they remain 10 in the RCC version. They did it by summarizing and splitting the last commandment in two parts namely:

“Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s wife;

Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s goods.

God is visiting the iniquities of the Filipinos from generation to generation. It is a never-ending cycle of curse until we renounce this sin of idolatry and learn to worship only Him. The article I wrote after the Super Storm in November last year spoke of more disasters coming to this nation. After then, the Lord gave me more dreams of judgment against this nation of religious shrines and idols. I dreamed of another earthquake with an ensuing tsunami. I dreamed twice of great floods, one hits  Visayas and the other Metro Manila; particularly submerged was Quezon City especially around Sto. Domingo Church. At another time in my prayer, I saw Robinson’s Galleria and the Edsa Shrine falling from a strong earthquake. On December 10 last year, around lunchtime, I had a vivid dream of civil unrest suggesting Makati area and spreading to different parts of Metro Manila. In that dream, while the President was appealing to the public to be calm as the situation was already under control, another explosion was heard somewhere.

Will these dreams and visions come to pass? I pray that they will not. And here’s what the Lord gave me that He may not bring judgments in this nation. On Dec. 18, 2013 I woke up around 4:00 a.m. with this message:

 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).

But who are the people of God that He wants to come to Him? The Christian Church!

It is easy to point fingers to the Roman Catholics whose idols are very visible; and never mind their way of life because we know that righteousness without Christ is as filthy as rags (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 10:3). But what about the so-called Christian Church? The Lord also sees idolatry, worldliness and indecency within the Christian Church. This is how the Lord showed me the spiritual sickness of the Church.

On February 13, 2011, I dreamed that I was a bride; but my unknown groom and I could not move from where we were as the highway was so filthy. Black and foul mud filled the huge highway. The following day I dreamed of two brides again. They were my roommates who were also sisters. The older bride was wearing an indecent gown that exposes some flesh which is the exact opposite of her actual wedding dress when she got married. The younger bride’s gown looked wholesome but she was immersed in herself as she listened to the music on the radio. The song was expressing grief over the unfairness of life and sounded very worldly. As the song ended I heard the DJ said, “Why not just commit suicide?”

Since I was not yet adept to prophetic dreams, I could not make sense of these dreams about “brides.” I prayed for understanding and the Lord answered and woke me up not many days later with this message, “The bride is the Church.”

In another unforgettable dream sometime in 2012, I was caught between going to the Church uphill or the Church on the plain. This Church on the plain is a real church in Quezon City. I was in a park on a plateau  in between; I looked up to the one uphill and saw no one there. I looked down on the Church below and saw many going that way. I decided to go where people streamed. As I stood on the doorway I immediately noticed the disarray contrary to how this church appears in reality. The youth whom I know in reality as highly disciplined especially during worship, were very unruly and noisy. They were eating and laughing in the kitchen which was separated only by a curtain from the worship hall. The congregation which is also normally well-mannered and formally dressed in reality, appeared the opposite in the dream. Some where on walking shorts and slippers, some in their house dress and some barefoot. I realized that I too was barefoot as in a hurry I forgot my sandals in the park. I ran outside to go back and get my sandals; and I almost stumbled as I was going to step on the graven idols buried on the stone pavement just enough to conceal them from the surface. I stopped to look at the idols and I was aghast.

In fairness with this Church in Quezon City, the Lord revealed that this situation runs rampant in many churches in the Philippines, both big and small ones.

My dream of the two brides above had a second scene just as my dream of myself as a bride had another scene; but I will reserve that part for another article which speaks of the judgment that begins in the House of God. Meanwhile, I appeal to the Church, consider your ways and remember your first love. We cannot help those who are lost in religious idolatry and other manners of ungodliness in this nation unless we live up to our calling as the righteous and holy “Bride of Christ.” The fate of our nation, the Philippines, depends on us, the people of God. Hear His word today!

 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land!

With love in Christ Jesus,

Cynthia

The Good Things about Christmas

image

http://www.antiochian.org/node/16840

Christmas is a topic that is hotly contested among the believers. Some are convinced it is not for the True Church to join in the celebration of the world’s most popular holiday that is pagan in origin while others believe that celebrating the holiday with the right focus and right attitude is good and acceptable. I, personally, do not promote the commercialism of Christmas nor the greediness and selfishness and worldliness that come with it, but I do believe that the holiday has some good things about it. And this article is not intended to argue who is right or wrong but merely to share what I have seen as the good things that we can thank and praise God for because of the holiday. I also believe that God in His sovereignty can always do something good out of the bad things we humans do if we are sensitive to His leading and not put Him in a box to fit our very limited views. Another important thing I want to point out is that while the date and the world’s manner of celebrating the occasion are of pagan origin, let it be emphasized that the birth of the Saviour which became the popular story called Christmas is not pagan. It is heavenly and Biblical.

Christmas to me has always been a happy time of the year because it is the most intimate occasion for me and my family since childhood. It continues to be so though my siblings and I are all grown up and have our own families as well. This season has become more meaningful and significant because this is the only time of the year when we can gather around our parents and bring our own children to bond with the bigger family; thus, I am forever grateful to the Father for this opportunity that the season brings.

While I do not anymore bother with the stresses of Christmas, my family still do; about that, I cannot do anything but just pray and let the Holy Spirit do the convicting. But as we have all been taught, we also teach our children what the true reason for the season is. Regardless of the date of the Saviour’s birth, we know that once upon a time the Lord Jesus Christ was born in a manger and grew up and ministered to men and went on to die on the cross for the sins of men and rose again and ascended up to heaven and is coming back very soon. We know that this boy in the manger as we see in the “Nativity Scene” is God and man who came for the lost and without Him is death.

This truth was made clearer to my children and nephews when in Church, the speaker preached the message of the Gospel in light of the occasion, fit for the young minds and the Holy Spirit touched the kids that deeper understanding came upon them. The youngest ones described the tears they could not control as they prayed the prayer of repentance and acceptance of the Lord Jesus into their lives. The teens also described their experiences. My son who received Jesus while he was around 7 years old described an unusual burning sensation that started from his feet up to his head that he didn’t want to end and begged of the Lord for more of Him. My oldest nephew went on his knees when he could not resist the heavy anointing of the Holy Spirit for the first time in his young Christian life. This anointing was also felt by the younger nephew that he just put his hand on his eyes to hide the tears and steadied himself as he was trembling in the manifest presence of God. All these happened on Christmas Eve.

After the service they went caroling in the neighborhood, singing songs only that speak the Truth and distributing food and gifts to the less fortunate. This is unusual to them because the Filipino practice, even of the many Christian churches here in the country,  caroling is a means for fund-raising; this practice often burdens the people and cause them to turn their lights off to avoid the carolers. So, this different way of caroling made the children’s Christmas and even the grown ups with them, a most unforgettable one as they felt the joy of giving instead of receiving; and at the crucial time of having just received from the Father what they call  the most wonderful experience with Him. To those who received from the carolers, the love of God which is the reason for His coming into this world and dwelling among men became real in a most unexpected way. The message of Christmas was delivered with such power and reality.

So, while we shun the pagan practices of the many churches, let us rejoice with those who, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, celebrate the season as an opportunity to bring glory to His name and reach out to the world with His love instead of scorn. And yes, the Church had Christmas party and the children got goodies and played games to enjoy.

Happy holidays to all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

In His love,

Cynthia
