Rick Renner was at church today and gave an insightful message as always. Rick Renner is a Biblical linguist and historian who has insight and understanding about scriptures that I have rarely heard in other historical teachers. He talked on James 1:1-17. And there is far more there than you can even imagine.
One of the words he taught on was "Grace." I have heard many definitions of grace, but nothing like this.
To begin... Grace IS NOT a Christian word. It has its roots in paganism and means "to be touched by god" and was used to refer to a person who had been empowered beyond the normal human ability to accomplish amazing feats that a "normal" person would never be able to do in their own strength. Pagan mythology is filled with stories of normal men who are "graced" by a god to accomplish superhuman feats.
In Christianity, we are anointed by Christ to live HOLY (separated unto Yehovah for a special purpose) lives empowered to lives like God.
Grace is NOT the freedom to live a sin-filled life and consider oneself saved. Nowhere is this taught in the Bible and is a deceptive teaching and if not brought back into alignment with the word of God's grace can result in being cast out into the darkness (Matt 25:30)

I wanted to share with you what happened to me at church today. I really didn't feel like going to church today and was thinking of staying at home and watching it online. But, the Holy Spirit told me to go to church.
I received an email today announcing that 1000 manuscripts have been discovered with the true name of God as Yehovah. Do not underestimate the importance of this. This is a very important fulfillment of Bible Prophecy. Knowing the TRUE name of God and establishing Yehovah's restoration of HIS name is preparation for the return of Jesus and ending the rebellion of the nations.
To most Christians Hanukkah is a mystery, but if we go deeper into its meaning it is far more important to the Church than one can imagine. In John 10:22-23 it says that Jesus was in Jerusalem at the time of the Feast of Dedication (or Festival of Lights). Hanukkah means to set apart for a special purpose or to make holy. If you have never read the story of the origin of Hanukkah it is found in the Maccabees in the Apocrypha. While it is not part of the Protestant Bible this story is very important to Christians especially in these last days.
Alexander the Great, after conquering the known world at that time died and his kingdom was divided into four separate kingdoms. The Greeks where Hellenizing their kingdom forcing everyone to follow the Grecian ways of life, including idol worship. But the Jews were not accepting it and continued to live according to their Jewish traditions. In response to their rebellion Antiochus Epiphanes (or the Illuminated God or God Manifest - for us a type of the Antichrist.) was sent to Israel to put an end to Jewish worship and force the Jews into worshiping the gods of Greece and Rome. Antiochus promoted a philosophy that all kingdoms should be as one people, everyone living the exactly the same. To many he was considered to be insane and did many cruel and tortuous things to the Jews and many of the Jews did surrender to the pressures of the world and turned their backs on the ways of God Yehovah. Antiochus went so far as to corrupt even the priests and leaders of Israel and setup a statue of Zeus in the temple and sacrificed a pig on it. Such an act desecrated the temple and was called the abomination of desolation. (1 Mac 1:41).
Do these things sound familiar? They should because many of these things are happening in our world today and will happen again in even greater ways as we approach the time of Christ's return. Jesus mentioned them in Matthew 24:15-16 referring to the prophecies in Daniel. The book of Daniel was written before the Maccabees and Jesus was pointing to both as a pattern for both the Jews and the Church in the last days. This is a three part witness to us warning to be prepared.
Even before Antiochus came to Jerusalem, the Grecian empire was pressuring the Jews to abandon the ways of God and adopt the ways of the world, worshiping Greek and Roman gods. Many fell away and surrendered to the will of the world adopting their gods and celebrating in their festivals and customs. They gave in to the pressure to accept the abomination of desolation as normal everyday life. An abomination condemned by God. Today we are facing the exact same things as kingdoms are rising up proclaiming that we need to be as one people in a one world government and many, even Christians are falling in line with that doctrine. And the day is coming when we will once again see the abomination of desolation standing in the temple setup by the Antichrist and the Church will be here to see it and all will be forced to accept the mark (or swear their allegiance to the Antichrist). And those who do, God has promised in his word will be cast into the lake of fire. This abomination must happen before the Rapture and the Church will be here to see it, as God has revealed in his Word and the teachings of this ministry and the book: Tell Them to Prepare - The Final Restoration. (http://www.richinsight.org/book.html)
In the midst of this falling away incited by Antiochus (the Antichrist) and their own priests (false prophets), there arose a small group, a family of average people who stood against this rebellion of Gods ways and called others into their cause hammering Antiochus' kingdom until it fell. In the same way the Church will have a remnant who are committed to the ways to God, not willing to submit to the demands of this world and they will do mighty exploits and show forth the glory of God to the world, saving many from certain destruction. The Maccabees overcame the rebellion of the people and returned the kingdom to God and in the process rededicating (Hanukkah) the temple and gave birth to the Festival of Lights. And in this way Hanukkah is even more Christian (the ways of God) than even Christmas, which was born out of pagan celebrations as revealed in the teaching "The Holiday Paradox." (http://www.richinsight.org/the-holiday-paradox.html) While many will fall away and be caught up in the ways of this world. There will be a rising up in the midst of turbulent times and those who know their God will do great exploits and display His glory. They will cast off the ways of this world to pursue with passion the ways of God. Your job is to decide, which kingdom will you belong to?
Live in Yehovah's Love!
Luke 12:1–5 (NLT)
It seems like our world is falling apart at the seams and everyone is attacking each other. Don't allow what you are seeing to scare you as these are the signs that Jesus is coming soon. Strengthen yourself in the Lord and lift your head praising our God Yehovah and our Messiah Jesus.
When I started hearing the things that are happening in the news, not only in the government but entertainment and the church shootings my heart turned inward to seek the voice of the Lord and he reminded me of the above verse. And while meditating on this verse I understood Jesus' thoughts looking at the people and his heart turned toward the last days when the people would be great in number to the point that we would be "milling about and stepping on each other." He then turned to his disciples and warned them, "Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and their hypocrisy." In our life, this applies not only to religious leaders but to every leader who has influence in our lives, including government, entertainment, and business. We have heard these leaders say they care about us and want to do those things that will help us, but when given the opportunity to make a difference they show their hypocrisy and do just the opposite. They reveal the truth of their nature, turning on the man Yehovah has chosen as our leader and openly attacking those who stand for righteousness. They reveal what is known as the “Deep State,” a satanic movement that has existed since the fall of man to undermine the plan of Yehovah and bring forth the revelation of the son of perdition, also known as the Antichrist. This Deep State is more than just those in government seeking to take control of our government, but entertainers, powerful businessmen and false religious leaders who have worshiped the ways of Satan for centuries, but kept it hidden from us to forward their doctrine to bring about the world leader they truly want - The Antichrist. These things are found in the scriptures and if you are not aware of them, you are not prepared for what is going to happen and may very likely be caught up in the deception that is going to come upon the entire world. You need to add these things to your Bible Study, for they are very important to the things that will be happening in the last days bringing Jesus back to the Earth.
Do you remember this verse?
Matthew 16:18 (ESV)
Did you know, when Jesus said this they were on Mount Hermon? Did you know that this mount was the place where the Watchers, the angels sent by God came down to the earth? Those who would later be known as fallen angels. Additionally, on Mount Hermon, there is a temple to the pagan god Pan and a cave called the Gates of Hell. It was believed that this was a portal into the underworld where these demonic beings dwell (IE. Pagan gods). This verse was not a declaration that Peter would be the leader of the Church, but literally a challenge to the gods of this earth that Jesus' Church, those who are led by the revelation of the Holy Spirit would not be defeated by the gods of this world. That the revelations that we receive from the Holy Spirit would never be overcome by the gods/demons/fallen angels of this world. This was an all-out mocking of their kingdom. He was figuratively throwing down the gauntlet in face of the fallen ones. The kingdom of the fallen. That is the battle we are fighting today. The battle of the kingdom of Yehovah against the kingdom of darkness.
That is what is happening today. The hypocrisy of those of the kingdom of this world is being revealed. They have hidden in the darkness for many years, full of hypocrisy, but the Holy Spirit is bringing these things, these people out into the light and they are being exposed for who they truly are. And Jesus is repeating the warning of Luke 12:1-5 to beware of their hypocrisy and do not be found siding with those who are aligned with the kingdom of darkness. When their hypocrisy is revealed they will rail against others in anger and hatred unable to restrain themselves for they cannot endure the light of the truth and they become violent, even to the point of killing innocent people. They cannot stand the righteous because the light of the righteous reveals their darkness and they become violent because of it.
What can we do then? This scripture tells us how to live currently. Verse 4 tells us not to be afraid of what is happening around us. Even if they kill us, we are not to fear, we are not to flee, but we are to stand strong and declare the glory of Yehovah because His kingdom will never be overcome. Instead of fearing man, fear Yehovah and know that we are in the last of the last days and all they can do to us is to kill our bodies, but they cannot touch our spirits who are in the hands of the almighty God Yehovah.
The warning here is to be aware and not find ourselves in association with those who are in the darkness. We are instead when we see these things happening, we are being given the opportunity to repent and come back into alignment and the light of the word of Yehovah.
This brings us to the ending in the book of Revelation:
Revelation 22:10–14 (ESV)
Jesus is telling us here not to struggle against those who are in the darkness. If they are open to the light, then lead them to the light of the salvation of Jesus, but if they are full of hatred and violence, leave them as they are. They will receive that which they are due when Jesus is revealed. We are instead to seek to live Godly lives lining up our lives with the ways of Yehovah found in the Bible. Seek first and only the ways of the kingdom of Yehovah and flee the ways of this world and we will be blessed when He is revealed.

It has been debated about for centuries, even millennia. Some claiming it is "Jehovah" others say "Yahweh" and even more variations have been created. The Jews won't tell and say they do not know. No one has been certain of the pronunciation, until now. There is now extensive historical Biblical and personal documents written by Rabbi's which reveal the true way to speak God's name and the revelation of this truth is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
According to Nehemia Gordon, a Karaite Jew (A Karaite Jew is a Jew who has rejected the oral law of the Rabbis and believes only the written law), has been doing extensive research of personal documents from Jewish Rabbi's going back hundreds, even thousands of years the proper pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) is Yehovah. Researching these documents uncovered that, even though Jewish Rabbi’s forbade the speaking of God’s name the Rabbi’s would perform a special ceremony once every seven years when they would speak the name of God to their disciples. The secret of the name YHVH is the sequence of the vowels that are used, in order, which is “e, o, a,” becoming "Yehovah." During this ceremony they make a reference to
Zechariah 14:9 (ESV)
In other words there will be no more confusion about what His name is. This is also a last day revelation that is spoken of in
Ezekiel 36:22–24 (ESV)
There are five videos that go in-depth on this subject.

A few days ago (Sept 2017), the Lord gave me a vision. The vision started out in space as I approached a planet. The Holy Spirit said this was the New Earth and it was even more beautiful than our present planet Earth as seen from space. The planet glistened like a diamond from space and as I approached I realized it was the crystal canopy that was glistening in the sunlight. As I approached the canopy became crystal clear ice in the shape of polygons like large crystals several feet across. These crystals moved and shifted like the clouds, slowly moving with other crystals and changing positions. The edges were tapered with smooth edges which seems to connect one crystal to another. The canopy acts as a shield from the sun blocking dangerous rays, but allowing sunlight in. Moderating the temperature over the entire planet. It is never too hot or too cold. There were also gaps in the canopy that moved as the crystals moved. The canopy covered most of the earth. As my flight continued I passed through one of the openings in the canopy and looked back at the canopy as I passed it. One could see through the crystals and see the stars as the crystals seemed to act like magnifying glasses. Each crystal could literally be called a window in the heavens because one could see right through them. They are mentioned in Genesis 1:6-8 as the waters above the expanse and in 7:11 as the windows of heaven opening as those crystals would have appeared as windows breaking up in the sky as they fell to the earth and turning into rain. As my flight took me toward the ground and I saw clouds and rain and snow on the mountaintops. I flew over what could only be described as the Garden of Eden. It was huge and amazingly beautiful and even more so when I saw a large dinosaur walking by a tree and a smaller dinosaur nearby grazing in the field. I looked up and in the distance, I was flying toward this massively magnificently white city that had to be the New Jerusalem (I’ve been there many times) and at that point, the vision ended.
This isn't the first flash vision I have been given and God has taken me throughout the span of time from the creation of the universe and eons into the future. So, this is just another deposit in a long string of revelations of what the Lord has in store for those who LOVE him.

On Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 7:30 PM God healed me of sleep apnea in the evening service at Eagle Mountain Church.
I had suffered from breathing disorders since I was a teenager and was believing God for a healing for many years. God worked a plan in my life as I had made other plans, but God caused me to attend the morning service at EMIC on Sunday, September 25, 2016. I had forgotten that Billy Burke was going to be ministering that day and was expecting a regular church service. When I learned he was going to be ministering I was not expecting anything to happen as I had claimed my healing many years ago and confess that I my healed and praise God for it every day. While the manifestation of my healing had not yet come, I would wake up in the middle of the night with my heart racing and have to sleep in a chair to get some sleep. This problem has existed for as long as I can remember. From problems snoring as a teenager. Several years ago the problem had gotten serious enough where I had a sleep test and was told that I had severe Sleep Apnea, to the point that even the two-way breathing machines would not help and it could result in a heart attack and I could die in my sleep. The problem was so bad that even when wide awake, if I laid down on a bed and relaxed my throat the airway would become immediately closed off. I would wake up exhausted and have to take naps in my chair and it was very difficult to get anything done because I was always exhausted. I would often take naps and fall asleep almost anywhere given the opportunity.
Last Sunday morning Billy Burke mentioned someone getting healed of sleep apnea, the Holy Spirit moved on me to expect my own healing to manifest. I inquired of the Lord what I should do and He said Sunday night. So, I came back Sunday evening expecting. During the service the Lord told me when to get in the line. I got up and waited for my time for healing. It didn't seem like much there wasn't any fireworks or flashes of light. Brother Billy Burke asked me what I wanted and I said I want to be healed of sleep apnea. He asked me a few questions and then put his hands on me and I came under the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit told me to lay still for a couple of minutes then allowed me to get up. I didn't feel anything major, but my throat felt tighter than it had been previously. When I went to bed that night I laid on my back and relaxed my throat. Nothing happened! The airway did not close like it had in the past and it was then that I felt what can only be described as an incision in my throat. Something had been cut away in a semi-circular cut. When I was laying on the floor an Angel had cut away a small portion of what was causing my problem.
Since that night I have had sound sleep and woken up refresh and energized every day. My throat feels different, tighter and when I relax I keep breathing. My body doesn’t know what to do as it has been trained to avoid relaxing in bed. I’m going to have to relearn how to sleep.
Praise the Lord!
Thank you Jesus!

I recently received the following word in my inbox. It blessed me and I wanted to share it with you. I have been going through a transition in my life over the past year. One which in the beginning was the scariest time of my life.
I honestly, did not know where my life was going and all I had was my faith in Jesus to sustained me. There were a lot of things that were lost to me that I had no control over and many things I had to let go of that I wanted to keep. I did not know what was happening to me and I did not know where my life was going to end up. I know Satan wanted it to end in my death. As he was taunting me that I was a dead man, I would scream scriptures and confessions at him that God is able to sustain me and greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.
Suddenly, in the midst of the darkness Jesus reached down and took hold and lifted me up and set me on a New Path. In the last possible moment God opened a door that I could never find and pushed me through it when the world wanted me dead and I barely had the strength to move forward.
He lifted me out of the place I was in and opened a blessing that was more than enough to turn things around. There was a lot of damage done in that battle and it has taken over nine months just to get to this point, but I am just now beginning to reach a point where I can shift my focus from answering the demands of the past to looking forward to the plans that God has given me. Things that I have only dreamed about for more than 30 years are now taking form and beginning to manifest. Beginning this month new doors are opening up and new opportunities are stepping forward and I am looking to God to lead me through these amazing days of glory.
Live in God's PASSION!
Are you looking for that dream to manifest? Take the word below and claim it as yours.
"Embrace the Change and the New Path"
by Angie Stolba, Washington, Illinois (via ElijahList)
I woke up on a recent morning hearing the words, "Embrace the change."
The winds of change are blowing right now. The Lord is telling us in this season, "Don't look to the former, for behold, I am doing a new thing. Do you not perceive it?" (Isaiah 43:18-19). I, personally, have been sensing transition and realignment for the past several months now. I have a very strong sense that God has been working behind the scenes, and that He is lining up good things for His children.
I believe the Lord is saying, "That which you have been contending and asking Me for is now at your doorstep. What has previously tarried will be held up no longer. You have crossed over; you have graduated. You are entering into a new season of increase and promotion, and during this time I am even increasing your influence."
"Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left" (Isaiah 54:2-3).
God is walking out this new path with you. You will find that your greatest asset will be continuing to abide into a place of intimacy with the Father. It is there that He will reveal the secrets of His heart and the plans and purposes that He has for your life.
"Ask Me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come." Jeremiah 33:3
The Lord will equip you to steward well all that He is about to open up before you as you dwell in this place of intimacy with Him. Do not fear; He is leading and guiding you into this new and exciting season.
"I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them" Isaiah 42:16).
The Father is singing over you, "This is a great and exciting time! You are coming into a wide, open space (Psalm 18:19). 'Everywhere your foot treads, I will give you the land' (Joshua 1:3). Do not let the enemy rob you of this season by trying to bring up old insecurities and anxiety; those things no longer have a grip on your life. 'For whom the Son sets free is free, indeed' (John 8:36). Do not look back; only go forward into the new! Have I not commanded you, 'Be strong and very courageous' (Joshua 1:9)? I will continue to open up the path before you as you abide in the secret place of My presence. Stay in step with My ways and My timing; I've got this! Rest in Me."
This is a kairos moment – a propitious moment for decision or action – for many in the Body of Christ. God is calling you for such a time as this (Esther 4:14).
Like Joseph, the Lord has been with you all along, and He has seen the faithfulness of your heart. Now it is your time to rise up and enter into what He has set before you. Your pit has prepared you for the palace.
"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you." Isaiah 60:1
The winds of change are blowing. Can you feel them?
