Boots on the Ground
This New Year is the time to dress up in righteousness, put your “glad rags” on and be prepared to preach and minister the word of the Lord. It’s also time to put some “boots on the ground,” dig ditches and help build what God wants to build for the days ahead. Morningside is a place of safety and a refuge for the last days. We need to be ready.
A recent guest on our program said, “Everything could change in a day. A Mega-quake may actually be the first domino that will push us into the tribulation period.”
Spiritual warfare is at the door. The church has got to have their boots on – we have to be ready to do some work! Christian soldiers need to have “boots on the ground.” Continue reading
This is a special report from the Watchman’s Wall.
Major signs are coming at us from different directs all at the same time as prophecy is unfolding in our daily news during this season of Blood Moons.
Today, January 23, 2015, the AP news reports the death of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah. According to Muslim tradition, the death of King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia would signal the imminent reappearance of “Mahdi,” the Islamic Messiah (antichrist). People in the Middle East will rise up in order to prepare the way for their savior. Imam Bagher says; “The messiah will not rise unless fear, great earthquakes, and sedition take place.” The Islamic Prophet Mohammad said; “The worst kind of humans will become leaders.” (in that day) Continue reading
We have been talking a lot on the show about the prophecies of David Wilkerson, some written over 30 years ago. We now know they’re for today because we can see them coming to pass before our very eyes. We believe that these prophecies have been illuminated for this time in our prophetic juncture so that God could remind His people of His faithfulness.
The referrals we are making to David’s books and prophecies are not to lift him up, because even he would resist that! No, we are not flattering anybody – we are simply declaring the word that he prophesied because it rings true with the Bible and with everything going on in our world.
Our use of David Wilkerson’s books and prophecies have caused quite a stir, even a phenomenon on line – the value of anything he has written has skyrocketed to ridiculous numbers! I wish David were still here to see this happening, but I know he is finally smiling from heaven. Continue reading
When I was in prison, I searched every scripture for a pre-tribulation rapture. I searched and searched. I read everybody’s book, all the prophetic teachers’ books, and not one of them gave scripture for a pre-tribulation Rapture. Scofield’s notes were as close as they could get to proving a pre-tribulation Rapture in the Bible and the Scofield notes are not the written Word of God; they’re notes!
Yet, here you have it in plain speak, in Matthew 24. It doesn’t get any clearer than this:
“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn.” Continue reading
Are you prepared for the days ahead? Tribulation and judgment are coming and the Lord will be gathering His people unto Himself. God has clarified His plans with the signs in the heavens. God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years. (Gen. 1:4)
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. (Matt.24:42-44)
Jesus, Himself warned us so we might be prepared for the days of trouble. He told us of wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes. He said that the world will hate us because of Him. People will be offended and betray each other. Love will grow cold, and hate, deception and lawlessness will abound. Continue reading
John then told me about a pastor that contacted him and ordered 150 of his books for his church. This pastor had a Dr. of Theology degree, very strong in the Word, and has pastored for over 40 years in a well-known and well-respected denomination that has preached a pre-trib rapture forever! John read from his letter:
I pastor a large Baptist church in North Carolina, and as such I have been taught and have taught for many years that there would be a pre-tribulation rapture. Several weeks ago, a member of my previous congregation called and told me that I just had to read your book. As I told you on the phone, I probably would not have purchased this book at first glance at a book store. But at my friend’s insistence, I ordered it. I did my first reading per the advice of a former college professor who told us to read books like we eat fish, ‘eat the meat and spit out the bones.’ In other words, if you stop reading a book at the first place where you disagree with the author, you will probably never finish, or you will finish very few books. Continue reading
Jewish Rabbis and some Christian educators teach that the sun, moon and stars are used by God as signs for those who are “watchful” so we will know about the return of Jesus and not be caught by surprise or unaware. There are also signs of future judgment, so we will have time to prepare and be ready for the days ahead. Part of the Jim Bakker ministry is to prepare the flock for what is to come.
Blood moons are known as “lunar eclipses” and have been used by God to show His judgment on the nation of Israel and solar eclipses are a sign of judgment upon the nations of this world as well. Continue reading
John went on to talk about how we will know when the Lord is coming again: “I want to share the revelation that God gave me. And that revelation is in Matthew 24 verse 3. Jesus’ disciples, they wanted to know, ‘When are you coming?’ They corner him on the Mount of Olives. I can just see him. It’s like Jesus is getting ready to go and they know he’s not going to be around much longer. ‘And before you leave, Lord, you’ve got to tell us; what are we supposed to be looking for? What are we going to have to go through?’”
“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. ‘Tell us,’ they said, ‘when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming in the end of the age?’ When Jesus’ disciples ask this question, ‘What will be the sign of your coming?’ Do you know what they were really asking? ‘Lord, what are we going to see leading up to your coming? What are we going to have to go through leading up to your coming?’” Continue reading
So many are realizing that just maybe we’re going to go through some things before the rapture. That is an amazing change of heart and mind, especially for pastors. I recently heard from a pastor that changed his mind about the timing of the rapture after preaching a pre-tribulation rapture for 40 years! I know that had to be hard for him, because it was hard for me, too, when God changed my mind after I studied every word of the Bible while in prison. And they say you can’t be rehabilitated!
So now we’re going to talk about the six things that have to take place before the rapture. Jesus told us that He didn’t want us to be caught unaware, that we’re to watch for these signs, signs that are popping all over the place right now. What’s happening in Israel right now is one of the signs of the time. The signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, many are happening right now. The floods, the droughts, the economic woes; all of this stuff is happening now. So, if we were instructed to watch that we would not be caught unaware, then how can these signs not mean anything? Continue reading
John Shorey made the point that the middle class is disappearing in this country and we now have the very rich and those who are working two jobs at Walmart and McDonalds to make ends meet! John continued to read from Racing Towards Judgment, “God will judge this nation with economic disasters. Critical money problems will strike large and small cities alike.”
Then, David Wilkerson addresses the current issues of our day (in Racing Towards Judgment) that are in our news headlines with chilling accuracy; “There will be violence everywhere. Unheard of violence. Unbelievable violence. Unnecessary violence. Uncontrollable violence. The violence seething beneath the surface for years will explode.” They are saying today, this week, that crime is rising and even death. There is unrest in America, and when all this poverty hits and there is no food, it’s going to explode like crazy! If 50 million people suddenly did not receive their food stamp allocations, we will be seeing violence erupting in virtually every city in America. Continue reading
