The Lord is Shaking the Nations

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the two most destructive natural forces that battered the US and neighboring islands, the 8.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico just when Irma was smashing the Caribbean have exposed many people’s thoughts. Even Christians are divided. Some are saying these are judgments from God while others do not really think they are. I am sharing here not what I think it is, but what I heard and received from the Lord.

In the morning of August 14, 2017, while I was praying and taking communion, I had a vision. I saw the world shaking. Then I saw Captain America in a similar heroic pose below, and heard, “Here’s Captain America, but America can’t save the world.”

The world is being shaken, and America, the world’s known savior, cannot save it as she is also being shaken. My vision was on August 14, the solar eclipse was on the 21st, Harvey hit Texas on the 25th and Irma hit Florida on Sunday,  September 10. Heaven is calling the world’s attention. If you are not convinced here’s what I heard and received from the Lord in 2011 in a powerful dream.

On March 6, 2011, the Lord came to me while I was in bed around 2:30 am. He put something in my hands. I asked, “What’s this, Lord?” He said, “Rod.”  I said in excitement, “I want to see and feel it.”  I saw and felt the rod. It was a foot long, like a T but the horizontal bar was barely thicker than the rod itself, luminous and very smooth. I said, “If this is real, I want to try it, Lord.” So, I tilted the cover of the lampshade with the tip of the rod and it tilted.

Then I saw before me a wide screen with a slideshow. As each image appeared I asked, “What’s that, Lord?” The Lord said, “Watch, the vision will surely come to pass.”

What I saw were scenes of chaos though I could not figure out what caused them. I also saw a man in one of those chaotic background. He looked dead but then rose up as if he just slept. Then I saw a bride.

Then my attention was drawn back to the rod, because, surprisingly and amazingly, my right hand was shaking it involuntarily and beating my left hand. I exclaimed, “Wow, what’s this?” The Lord said, “I am shaking the nations with my rod.”  Then I asked, “What shall I do with the rod, Lord?” The Lord answered, “Put it in your pocket.” I said, “How?” He said, “Just do it.” I obeyed; amazingly, the rod coiled in my hand. I woke up as soon as I put it in my pocket.

The shaking of the nations began, at least for me, shortly after the encounter when the 9 magnitude earthquake with gigantic tsunamis struck and destroyed lives and properties in Japan. The Arab Spring also began in 2011 and we all know that Syria is still in war to this day. Hundreds of thousands have been killed in the on-going battle and multitudes have been displaced creating a refugee crisis that adversely affected much of the western world. Terrorism has since increased in an unimaginable violence especially in the wake of ISIS.

The shaking of nations has not stopped. The Philippines has had its own share of the shaking. To mention a few major events, two destructive earthquakes happened respectively in 2012 in Negros Oriental and in 2013 in Bohol. The worst typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) also happened in 2013, barely a month after the 7.2 magnitude Bohol earthquake. Zamboanga City was attacked in September of 2013 by Islamic forces wanting to take over the city, and, today, Marawi City is still in rubble since the ISIS affiliated Maute terrorists tried to overthrow the place to make it their new hub.

As I am writing this some parts of Metro Manila and nearby are flooded due to Tropical Depression Maring. Here are some of the headlines:

Maring Makes Landfall.., Threatens Metro Manila

13 Missing in Flooded Calamba City

Dramatic Rescue… Bus Swamped by Floods

Teen Brothers Buried in Landslide

I heard fellow Christians say it is cruel to speak about judgment when people are suffering. But such a view downplays the fact that Yahweh in His righteousness and mercy want people to repent and submit to His ways. But how can we repent when we don’t see our need to do so? And how can we see the need to humble and repent and turn from our wicked ways when all we want to see is a loving God incapable of disciplining us with life-shattering circumstances? Yahweh is slow to anger and abounding in love and does not want anyone to perish. But we must not forget that even His chosen people Israel were not spared when their rebellion and wickedness reached beyond tolerance. He is sovereign and in full control no matter what men do or think.

I pray that Yahweh’s children will have the courage to speak the truth- that the world lies in wickedness that warrants the intervention of a holy God. He is speaking loud and clear, calling people to repent and turn to Him. Let us not stand in the way by trying to sooth them with less than the hard truth when He is trying to get their attention. Heartbreaking as it is, it is truly a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Psalm 2

Why are the nations in an uproar,
the peoples grumbling in vain?
The earth’s kings are taking positions,
leaders conspiring together,
against Adonai
and his anointed.
They cry, “Let’s break their fetters!
Let’s throw off their chains!”

He who sits in heaven laughs;
Adonai looks at them in derision.
Then in his anger he rebukes them,
terrifies them in his fury.
“I myself have installed my king
on Tziyon, my holy mountain.”

“I will proclaim the decree:
Adonai said to me,
‘You are my son;
today I became your father.
Ask of me, and I will make
the nations your inheritance;
the whole wide world
will be your possession.
You will break them with an iron rod,
shatter them like a clay pot.’”

10 Therefore, kings, be wise;
be warned, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve Adonai with fear;
rejoice, but with trembling.
12 Kiss the son, lest he be angry,
and you perish along the way,
when suddenly his anger blazes.
How blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Repent now and be saved.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

Is There yet Hope for America?

I wish the answer is YES. But unfortunately, as much as I want to say YES, that is not what I received from the Lord during my prayer of intercession this morning.

Being a watchman is not easy. Being able to see what others do not is never a pleasure. It is fraught with agony as you know what lies ahead and beyond yet you know that there is not much that you can do to change the situation; for with one whose spiritual eyes and ears are open the danger is clear, and with that, the responsibility to warn becomes as enormous as its reality. Then comes the more unpleasant reality- those you are warning are not listening or they refuse to listen because they believe in what they see differently. They will call you a “doom and gloom” prophet, a “killjoy” or just someone who cannot see anything good. But I know my calling and responsibility and so I will speak of what I see and hear regardless of the outcome.

In my time with the Lord this morning I sought Him once again how I should pray for America, what I should tell those who believe that America will be great again. I sought Yahweh for even my own kin and people are still caught up in the great American dream. I inquired of Him if I were only being pessimistic for feeling that America will keep on its path to judgment and not rise again as many believe otherwise.

I believe in His mercy and compassion. I believe He is full of grace and loving kindness. I believe that He answers the prayers of the righteous. I believe that He is able to direct the hearts of kings. I believe about standing in the gap that He should not destroy the land. I believe He does not take pleasure in the death of a sinner but would rather have the sinner turn to Him. I believe He is patient because He does not want anyone to perish. But I am aware of what happened to Israel in spite of Jeremiah’s pleading and lamenting in behalf of the nation. I am aware that he interceded and prayed importunately for his people. I am aware how seriously he went about calling for repentance, warning the leaders and ordinary folks of Yahweh’s judgment if they would not return to Him, if they continue in sin and lawlessness. I am aware he boldly rebuked the kings and the people yet wept before Yahweh in their behalf. And yes, I am also aware of Yahweh’s answer to this faithful prophet. It is in this context that I again earnestly sought the Father’s heart for America.

Then, I knew He was telling me to go over the writings of Jeremiah so, I said, “Yes, I will read again the Book of Jeremiah.”

Prayer to me is never boring because He is responding and I have learned to recognize His voice in my spirit. But to make sure I heard Him right, I seek Him for a word of confirmation from His Word, the Scriptures. This is what I did after praying.

So, I opened my Bible and Jeremiah’s prayer and Yahweh’s answer stood out to me. This is the sobering confirmation:

Jeremiah 14:19-22; 15:1-2

19 Have you rejected Y’hudah completely?
Is Tziyon loathsome to you?
Why have you struck us irreparably?
We looked for peace, but to no avail;
for a time of healing, but instead found terror!
20 We confess our rebellion, Adonai,
also the crimes of our ancestors;
yes, we have sinned against you.
21 For your name’s sake, do not spurn us;
do not dishonor your glorious throne.
Remember your covenant with us;
do not break it.
22 Among the nations’ idols,
can any make it rain?
Can the skies, of themselves,
send showers?
Aren’t you the one,
Adonai, our God?
Don’t we look to you?
For you do all these things.

Then Adonai said to me, “Even if Moshe and Sh’mu’el were standing in front of me, my heart would not turn toward this people! Drive them out of my sight, get them out of here! And when they ask you where they should go, tell them that this is what Adonai says:

‘Those destined for death — to death!
Those destined for the sword — to the sword!
Those destined for famine — to famine!
Those destined for captivity — to captivity!’

Reading those words literally gripped me that I fell silent for a moment. This is the same answer He gave me in the past, at least two times, for the same question which is the title of this article. Nothing has changed. Yahweh has not changed His mind. In spite of the change in leadership, America has not given Him reason to change His mind.

Jeremiah 18:7-10

At one time, I may speak about uprooting, breaking down and destroying a nation or kingdom; but if that nation turns from their evil, which prompted me to speak against it, then I relent concerning the disaster I had planned to inflict on it. Similarly, at another time, I may speak about building and planting a nation or kingdom; 10 but if it behaves wickedly from my perspective and doesn’t listen to what I say, then I change my mind and don’t do the good I said I would do that would have helped it.

When the US Supreme Court in 2015 ruled in favor of same sex marriage, I asked Yahweh, “What do you say now, Lord? What is your message to this people?”

The answer He gave me is Jeremiah 14:10. You may read the article here:

The Father’s Response to the US Supreme Court Ruling that Gay Marriage is a Right

Is there yet hope for America? Will America be great again? His answer is found in those words in Jeremiah 18:7-10 and 2 Chronicles 7:14

14 then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.

If Yahweh sees the kind of repentance that Nineveh did after Jonah’s warning, America will certainly recover. But will the nation repent as Nineveh did in Jonah’s time? I wish I can give a positive answer but the answer He gave me when I asked that question in 2012 is this one word, “Nahum.”

Nahum was the prophet who was sent to Nineveh after about 100 years of Jonah’s warning and the people repenting. This time Nineveh did not repent and so the nation was destroyed. See also this article by Joel Rosenberg:

Is America Facing a “Jonah” Moment or, a “Nahum” Moment?

Is there hope for America? I believe that as a nation her fate is sealed. But as I keep telling everyone, those who listen and repent and turn to Him will certainly be saved. Noah and his family, Lot and his family were spared when judgment fell upon their generation. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Isaiah 55:6-7

Seek Adonai while he is available,
call on him while he is still nearby.
Let the wicked person abandon his way
and the evil person his thoughts;
let him return to Adonai,
and he will have mercy on him;
let him return to our God,
for he will freely forgive.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

Deception: A False Rapture

On September 25, 2016, I had this dream which is playing out in my mind again.

Someone was telling me that she was trying to look in the eye every man she met because she thought the Messiah had probably returned and was among us. I told her she was wrong to assume that the Lord had returned. Looking out and pointing up to the sky I told her that no one would miss His return for He would come in the clouds with great signs. While still speaking and looking up, I saw clouds forming like chariots and coming down so fast that I exclaimed, “Just like that!”

I realized that the Lord could be coming already as I also saw people going up into the sky. I thought I had to go with them. Excitedly, I ran towards the direction of those people going up in the clouds. As I reached the platform, I got confused especially when I lined up with others on the wooden and narrow steps. But I climbed the stairs somehow. I was waiting for my turn while I wondered why the rapture was taking so long for others including me. As I got to the third and final step, I looked ahead; adjusting my eyes in the dark I saw that those who went before me were being lifted on what looked like the tip of a wooden ship that tilted up. Then I realized it was not what I expected. I turned around and tried to tell everyone that it was not real but nobody seemed to hear me. I was concerned, more so because I saw a woman directing the whole incident. She told someone to send me away for I was disrupting their plan. I stepped aside trying to understand what was going on. I looked to my right and noticed straight ahead something like a wide tunnel that was dimly lit. I looked intently and realized that those people I saw going up to the clouds earlier were actually sent there and others were still going. I felt so bad that they were oblivious and seemed to not notice at all. They were like walking dead, hypnotized, and I knew that this was a deception recalling how they could have created those cloud formations that I saw and made it appear from a distance that people were actually going up into the sky only to be sent down to the long tunnel.

What concerns me about this dream is the condition of those people I saw in the platform and in the tunnel. It’s like the Holy Spirit made sure that I saw that they were helplessly deceived.

There is no doubt about the second coming of the Lord, in fact, I am excited that I pray daily for His return. But this dream is certainly a warning of a false catching away.

I believe that when the Lord returns the saints will meet Him in the air but I do not believe in a rapture other than and apart from His glorious appearing to reign as King. Consider the message of Paul as he describes the coming of the Messiah and the saints meeting Him in the air:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

In his second letter to the Thessalonians, Paul mentioned again the coming of the Lord and the saints gathering together to Him, further describing the signs that precede the event:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ[a] had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin[b] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God[c] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He[d] who now restrains will do so until He[e] is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Will there be a false rapture, a false alarm for the believers? I do not know but we must take note of Yeshua’s warning about false christs and false prophets who will use signs and wonders to deceive even the elect if it be possible. He also describes in plain language the manner in which He will return:

Matthew 24:23-31

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

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.

John also spoke of the lawless one, the beast who will perform great signs to deceive those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 13:13

13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

The second coming of the Messiah is a glorious event that no one on earth will ever miss it. If this dream is indeed prophetic, then the Lord is warning us about watching for a rapture that is not also about His coming back to reign as King.

Fix your eyes on the Messiah, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Get to know Him intimately and learn to recognize His voice so that you will not be deceived. The way to recognize the fake is to be so familiar with the genuine. And as the Lord admonished us, let us watch and pray.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

Homosexuality- Where is it going?

Two days ago this question cut short my nap. The answer was also quick: “Sodom and Gomorrah. Judgment!”

Before I took a break from my routine I was actually reading this article, Same-Sex Marriage Support Rises, Even Among Republicans and White Evangelicals.

The article is only one of the many coming out across the internet and on television on a daily basis. Even the local media is not without a story to tell of celebrities coming out “bravely” into the open. The latest is Charice Pempengco.

Charice’s journey to becoming a transman Jake Zyrus

I got sick and tired of the world celebrating and rejoicing over perversion that my response to almost every story was to snub it. But Yahweh would not let me. As He woke me up with the message, I had to get up and pray and pray fervently.

The trend has shifted dramatically from what we used to know as normal. We are being fed everyday with all sorts of disgusting news on homosexuality like these ones:

Gender Fluidity Invades Men”s Fashion with Dresses, Skirts and 8 Inch Heels

Indoctrinating the Young Into LGBTQ

The day’s highlight was the news about one of our lawmakers planning to write a bill allowing same-sex marriage in the Philippines- and unfortunately, that is right after I heard the question which is the title of this post.

Alvarez to file bill on same-sex union

Not too long ago, the LGBT community was strengthened and encouraged to fully assert its supposed rights when the former POTUS Obama declared his support for same-sex union. As it became a hot issue at that time, the Holy Spirit gave me a prophetic message which I wrote on this blog. Here’s a portion of the article:

As the world’s most powerful leader, Obama’s word has set the tone for ultimate sexual perversion. The world may not necessarily give in to legalizing same-sex marriage today, yet in time it will stand at a crossroad and have to decide on the issue. It will be the final test to the extent of the world’s acceptance of homosexuality as merely another harmless preferred lifestyle. So far, the fuss that Obama’s remark has created already provoked many to examine their personal conviction openly or quietly.

Sadly, the message has become a reality today. The world has made its choice. What about us? What about the Church? What about your church?

Can this be reversed? If you are watching and praying, you know that the world is truly covered with darkness. I saw this darkness in a vision about 6 years ago and I knew it was spiritual darkness. The world we live in is in the hands of the beast and the coming of the Messiah Yeshua is the only hope of redemption we have. That’s not saying there is no hope for these people anymore for Yahweh God is still in the business of snatching sinners from the clutches of the enemy until His return; and many are being set from the bondage of homosexuality. As Christians we must continue vigilantly in prayer and intercession in behalf of the lost, in behalf of our nations. Specifically, our stand against sexual perversion should not falter even if the rest of the world lauds it and turns it into the new normal. This gross wickedness is utter darkness and our firm stand against it makes us the light that shines in the dark.

Judgment is coming because our Holy God will not tolerate wickedness forever. There is a time of reckoning and it is not going to be very long. As in the days of Noah, as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, so our days have become. Evil is now good and good is called evil. The signs are unfolding before us. Let’s wake up from our slumber and prepare for the coming of the Lord.

Maranatha!

Romans 1:16-31

The Just Shall Live by Faith

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,a]”>[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”b]”>[b]

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,c]”>[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,d]”>[d] unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Matthew 4:17

17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Praying Against Terrorism

I was not surprised when the Maute-ISIS terror group attacked Marawi City because I have dreamed about Islamic terrorism in the country since early 2010 or 2011. It will take time for me to go through all of my notes on these but I can remember that there is not a year that I didn’t have at least one dream of this sort that I can tell a few without the help of my journal. In most of my dreams, I was either hunted down or held captive by terrorists. The latest which was sometime last year was that I was one of the hostages as the whole place was invaded by the Islamic jihadists.

The most unusual of all was my encounter with a man in full black garb just like these terrorists in this photo.

Clarion Project: End of Times Prophecies Justify Beheading of Copts

It was around 8:00 o’clock in the evening of July 1, 2015, while I was walking home from the supermarket that I met a man in this black outfit. That part of the road was empty except for the two of us and the cars passing by. The lights were dim but I could see clearly as we were just a few steps away from each other when I noticed his unusual appearance. He probably saw me staring at him so he pulled down his big black umbrella to hide his face. That was also very unusual for him to have an umbrella at night since there was no rain, not even a drizzle. He turned to the side towards the perimeter fence pretending to fix something, but I knew he just avoided bumping on me. I also saw the black backpack on his back as I followed him with my eyes. I could not get my eyes off the unusual sight and so I kept turning back as I walked on until I reached the subdivision’s gate. I reported the incident to the guard on duty. For the last time I turned to look at the man but I could no longer see him.

I could not imagine where the man could be going as the direction he was taking was towards the commercial area which was about a hundred meters away. If he went there he would certainly attract everybody’s attention. But where could have he gone?

I called up my Father-in-law to report what I saw and asked if ISIS were already in Metro Manila. He brushed the story aside, telling me it was impossible and somehow lectured me why it was so. He was with the intelligence and so I supposed he would know. But like most of the leaders said in those days and until the incident in Marawi, there is no ISIS in the country.

I did not talk much about the things I saw because I thought, except for my kids and my Mom-in-law who was so concerned that she might be a target because of her Israel connection, nobody would believe me. However, deep in my heart I knew it was only a matter of time that violent jihad would rise its ugly head in this country.

I followed the news on this extremely violent and barbaric jihadists since they started attacking in 2014. I heard how our leaders dismissed the idea that the Abu Sayyaf had pledged allegiance to the terror group which prides itself as the new Islamic caliphate. I believed they had good reason to downplay the possibility- they didn’t want to raise an alarm and cause panic.

The article that bears the above image was in my inbox for the past two years. I marked it because of its relevance to what I have seen in the spirit, and, the above encounter which probably was a vision. Whether the man was for real or not, I believe the Lord made me see him to confirm what I have been dreaming and sensing for the past four or five years.

The article captured ISIS’ tweet that says, “Until Andalusia to Philippines returns to the hands of Muslims, defensive will go on. Only after that can it be labelled offensive.”

As one who grew up in Mindanao, the idea that the Philippines must one day return to the hands of Muslims is not unusual to me, although I used to think that the Muslims only claim Mindanao as originally belonging to them, and so the government’s never-ending negotiation with one Muslim militant group to another. Who could have thought that ISIS would come in the picture and vow to get the Philippines?

In my time with the Father earlier today, I asked Him how He wanted me and other believers to pray about the situation especially with the on-going conflict in Marawi. Our human tendency is to pray for the immediate end of the war; for the terrorists to be finished off with no one left as much as possible. Our sympathy is for the displaced innocent civilians and for the soldiers who fight with their lives these misguided and lost individuals. And most likely, that is how the Christians are praying which I am not saying is wrong. But the question is, how does Yahweh really want us to pray?

We see only the problem as they are and our praying is responsive to our natural instincts, but if we seek Him who knows everything, we will see that there is more to just praying for the end a conflict.

As I prayed earlier today, the Holy Spirit showed me what is in His heart. He wants to see us, the believers, on our knees, praying for the lost. Many are dying in Marawi and they are dying without hope. While we weep for the innocent and the soldiers, the Lord weeps even for the terrorists. We hail the heroes of Marawi but we forgot that the soldiers and civilians who died along with the terrorists have the same fate in eternity without Christ. And this is true in every nation fighting with terrorism and all kinds of conflicts.

Our nation and the nations of the world are crumbling yet the people of God are unconcerned. We need to start praying earnestly for the lost. When need to get serious with our call to be the light and salt of the world. Most importantly, we, His people, need individually and corporately to humble ourselves, seek His face, pray and turn from our wicked ways so that He will hear from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land. If we will do this, how quickly can He put an end to the conflict and stop the spread of terrorism.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, but can we truly say that our nation’s God is He? The task of praying for the nation and the world sounds overwhelming but it actually just begins with us humbling before Him and seeking His face. The prayer of a righteous man avails much; and we know that when we pray according to His will we will have what we ask for.

The Messiah is coming soon. May He find us faithful. May He find us praying and watching.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

John 3:16-17

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

2 Peter 3:9

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[a] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Ezekiel 33:11

11 Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’

Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.[b]

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Father’s Response to the US Supreme Court Ruling that Gay Marriage is a Right

Supporters of same-sex marriage celebrate outside of the Supreme Court in Washington, on June 26, 2015. time.com: Read Obama’s Speech About Same Sex Marriage Ruling

The US Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of gay marriage didn’t surprise me. On May 21, around midnight, as I was falling asleep after praying I heard a message in my spirit which says, “gay marriage atlas.”

I wrote it down without the slightest idea what it meant. Later in the day I checked online if there is such a thing as “Gay Marriage Atlas.” The top results on Google were: New online atlas ‘heat-maps views on abortion, gay marriage, immigration  Religious Americans Support Gay Marriage

Both articles led me to “The American Values Atlas” which shows that on the national level 54 percent are in favor of same-sex marriage, 38 percent oppose it and 8 percent either don’t know or refuse to make a stand.

The stats reveals clearly the moral decline of America which reached its peak on the infamous day of June 26, 2015 when court handed its decision which turned upside down the natural and Biblical law on marriage as between a man and a woman.

It was around 9:30 p.m. here in the Philippines when I received the news feed on my phone. It read: “U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of gay marriage nationwide.”

I closed my eyes  and said, “What do you say now, Lord? What is your message to this people?” I thought I would just go to sleep with the questions but gently I heard in my spirit, “Jeremiah 14:10.” I was sleepy yet I could not wait to see what verse says.

Jeremiah 14:10

10 Here is what Adonai says to this people:
“They so love to wander,
they don’t restrain their feet;
so Adonai does not want them.
Now he will remember their crimes,
and he will punish their sins.”

The Holy Spirit prompted me to read on, so I did.

Jeremiah 14:11-14

11 Then Adonai said to me, “Don’t pray for this people or for their welfare. 12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; when they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Rather, I will destroy them with war, famine and disease.” 13 Then I said, “Adonai, God! The prophets are telling them, ‘You won’t see war, and you won’t have famine; but I will give you secure peace in this place.’” 14 Adonai replied, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I didn’t send them, order them or speak to them. They are prophesying false visions to you, worthless divinations, the delusions of their own minds.

Over a year ago I received this word while in prayer, “America has come to the point of no return.”

If that was the condition then, how much worse is it now when through the reprobate justices the nation has officially become “Sodom and Gomorah” in her perversion?

I am aware that America is not alone in rebellion. She’s not also the first one to embrace this abominable homosexual union/marriage. But her position as world leader makes her doubly responsible as her influence is great. And how time flies! It was three years ago that Obama gave his controversial comment about his pro-gay marriage stance. I wrote about it as the Lord gave me the message, and sadly, it has become a reality. Here’s an excerpt:

“America’s leader, the world’s leader has mocked God yet again!.. As the world’s most powerful leader, Obama’s word has set the tone for ultimate sexual perversion. The world may not necessarily give in to legalizing same-sex marriage today, yet in time it will stand at a crossroad and have to decide on the issue. It will be the final test to the extent of the world’s acceptance of homosexuality as merely another harmless preferred lifestyle. So far, the fuss that Obama’s remark has created already provoked many to examine their personal conviction openly or quietly.” See full article: Gays, Gay Stories and Obama

When Obama was re-elected, the Lord said that it’s time to mourn and I dreamed of a devastating storm and the homosexuals defying the storm. See article here: Obama’s Re-election: A Time to Mourn!

The righteous Judge will not tolerate wickedness forever. America is going down to the pit and there’s no stopping it. But just as Lot and family were rescued before fire fell down on the cities, the Holy Spirit will rescue those who belong to Him. So, if you hear the Spirit speaking today do not harden your heart. Seek the Lord while He is available; call on Him while He may be found. Give your life to Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus the Messiah for He alone can save you from the fierce judgment that will soon be upon America.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

Vision: Israel Through the Lens

Last night the Father reminded me of the dream/vision I received sometime in 2011 as I was praying what to do about the confusion on Israel. When I woke up this morning, the Holy Spirit prompted me to write about this.

The Lord started giving me dreams, visions, words on Israel around 2009 after I heard His voice in December 2008, in a dream or night vision saying, “As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you.” (The audible voice sounded as John described in Revelation like the sound of many waters). But it was in 2011 when the frequency of dreams and visions increased that I began to seek and understand what He was trying to tell me. One of those dreams I had was about seeing the vision through the lens.

In the dream I saw vividly very beautiful flowers in vibrant yellow, something I’ve never seen or perhaps won’t really see in this world.  The vast array was glorious and heavenly. It was impressed in the dream that what I saw was someone’s vision and I heard this, “To see correctly, the vision must be seen through the lens.”

The message in the dream puzzled me for months until I read in the book ‘Praying for Israel’s Destiny,’ what James W. Goll said:

“If you want to have an accurate perception of life, Scripture and God’s purposes in the Earth- especially in the days before Christ returns- you must have God’s vision. You must see through God’s eyes and then hold dear to your heart the things closest to the heart of God. Since Israel is at the center of God’s vision, we will need to see through the lens of Israel’s destiny if we are to see correctly and clearly…” (emphasis added). Read the entire excerpt on Amazon.

On a side note, I bought James Goll’s books because of the vision I had of him during prayer. It was in one of my prayers about what God was doing to me and trying to tell me in the many dreams and visions He was giving me constantly that I saw James Goll with shelves of books behind him. Immediately the impression was that the Holy Spirit was telling me to read his books. Amazingly, this man of God discuss in his books many of the messages I received on the Prophetic, Israel, and Prayer and Intercession.

The Lord also prompted me this morning to check on another man of God, Derek Prince, who, throughout his solid years in ministry during his lifetime, saw Israel and the Church in the right and Biblical perspective. I am astounded by another confirmation of what it is about seeing the vision through the lens. His book entitled “The Destiny of Israel and the Church” depicts this image.

The Destiny of Israel

Excerpt

(Below is from a PDF file. Just google to get the link to the file and read the whole excerpt)

The Focus of World Attention

“Why is Israel the focus of attention in the world’s
media? Why do pragmatic and statesmanlike
world leaders erupt with emotional outbursts when
Israel is discussed? Why does the United Nations devote 30
percent of its time and one-third of its resolutions to Israel—a
tiny country with a population of only five million?
There is only one source for a clear and authoritative
answer: the Bible. Although it was completely written almost
two thousand years before the current problems in the Middle
East arose, the Bible provides a supernaturally inspired
analysis of both the issues and the forces that are involved.
Israel occupies a unique place in the current
controversies, because the place that Israel occupies in God’s
purposes is likewise unique. God’s prophetic Word reveals
that this present age will culminate with the restoration and
redemption of Israel. The nearer we come to the close of the
age, therefore, the more intense will be the pressures
surrounding Israel.

These events that center on Israel will also determine the
destiny of Satan, the age-old adversary of God and man. In
2 Corinthians 4:4 Satan is called “the god of this age.” He is
well aware that when Israel’s redemption is completed and
this age closes, he will no longer be able to pose as a god. He
will be stripped of his power to deceive and manipulate
humanity and will be subject to the judgment of God.
Consequently, he is at this time deploying all his deceptive
strategy and exercising all his evil power to resist the process
that will lead to Israel’s restoration and ultimate redemption.
Here, then, are the two main spiritual forces that meet in
conflict over the Middle East: on the one hand, the grace of
God working toward Israel’s restoration; and on the other
hand, the deceitful strategies of Satan, who is opposing this
process by every means in his power. This is the real but
invisible reason for the struggles and tensions which Israel is
currently experiencing.

A major part of Satan’s strategy against Israel has been
to obscure the truth as revealed in the Bible. It is amazing
that so much confusion has existed, and still exists, in the
church today concerning God’s purposes for Israel. The
battle for Israel is, in fact, the battle for truth. There are two
vital areas of truth that we will consider in this book: Israel’s
identity and Israel’s destiny. After we have examined these,
we must consider whether the destiny of Israel also sheds
light on the destiny of the church. Finally, we will discuss the
responsibility of the church toward Israel in this hour of
crisis…

Essential truth is usually simple. And the truth is, Israel
is Israel, and the church is the church.
To recover the truth about the identity of Israel it is
necessary to go back to the actual text of the New Testament
and see how the apostles used the term Israel. This is the
only legitimate basis for a scripturally accurate use of this
term. Ever since the canon of Scripture was closed, no
subsequent writer or preacher has been authorized to change
the usage established by the apostolic writers of the New
Testament. Any writer or preacher who introduces a different
application of the term Israel forfeits the right to claim
scriptural authority for what he or she has to say about Israel.

I have discovered seventy-nine instances in the New
Testament where the words Israel or Israelite occur.* After
examining them all, I conclude that the apostles never used
Israel as a synonym for the church.
Nor does the phrase the new Israel occur anywhere in
the New Testament. Preachers who use that phrase should
take care to define their use of it. They should also state that
it is not found in the Bible.”

I don’t, at this point, want to add more to the writers’ words. They both eloquently explained the destiny of Israel and the church and so I recommend the readers who want to see the truth in the right perspective, to read the books. You may also visit their websites and search on Israel topics.

Finally, I emphasize that the ultimate source of truth is the Bible and so read it over, asking the Holy Spirit to show you the truth from His point.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces.”

With love, in Yeshua,

Cynthia
