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!
Live in God's LOVE!
It's that time of year again and time for the call of God to go out. He has some questions for everyone and asks:
Are you seeking first Kingdom of God and His way of doing things?
Do you want all these other things added to you?
Do you want the true blessings of this season of celebration?
God has reserved special blessings for those whose heart are focused on pleasing Him. If we truly are seeking His Kingdom above our own desires and want to do the things that please Him the most, then let us throw off the deceptions of this world and pursue and cling to those times of celebration that God gives us in His word. The world is changing and a division must come. There will be those who will cling to their traditions of men, thinking that God doesn't care as long as we do it in His name. But that is not what He says in His word. He calls on us to throw off the things of this world and pursue Him with our whole heart. That means leaving behind celebrations we used to think were ordained by God but now we understand that God had nothing to do with them and He has called us to a higher form of celebration. His celebrations give Him glory, while the celebrations of this world celebrate and give glory to a pagan tree and its god. Therefore, let us pursue those things that are of God.

Today I want to highlight some scriptures that everyone should be familiar with, but most ignore the importance of.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLTse)
Paul tells us in the scripture that ALL scripture is inspired by God and shows us what is right or wrong with how we live. God uses the scriptures to prepare and equip us to live godly lives.
But what most people don't realize is that this is only part of Paul's warning and it ends in 2 Tim.4:3-4:
2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NLTse)
When we bring these two scriptures into the last days we see those who teach what people want to hear. I fully believe in salvation by grace, but there are those who teach that it doesn't matter what we do after we are saved because the grace of God will cover us. That is true, if our heart is to serve God and please Him. But some, those who seek after their "own desires" are only seeking justification to sin. These people have an false faith and are going to find out after it is too late that they have deceived themselves.
Ephesians 2:8 tells us that we are saved by the grace of God through our faith in Him. It is a gift from God so that we can't boast that it was our own ability. But what does this mean? If we are saved through faith, then that requires a response to that faith. Faith without works is dead and Faith works by LOVE, so there is the effort we must show Him that we LOVE Him because of that Faith and we do that by doing those things that please Him. Therefore, if someone tries to use grace as an excuse to live a life of sin they are deceiving themselves and really don't have the grace they think they have.
Please note: I am not talking about someone who LOVES the Lord and is seeking to please Him, then stumbles and sins. No! Because they have the heart and LOVE to seek after God they are doing the best they can, if they stumble the grace of God protects them. I am talking about those who habitually sin never giving it a second thought and think they can live a life of sin and do whatever they please and think they will be saved. Those are the ones who have become self deceived and seek after teachers who give them excuses to justify their actions.
They never had a REAL personal relationship with Christ and are counted as the servant who buried his gift in Matthew 25:14-30 and is cast into outer darkness because he never knew his master.
Matthew 25:28-30 (NLTse)
They may think they are Christians, but if they don't have true faith and live in a LOVE relationship with Jesus, they will not receive the grace they think they have and will one day find that they have deceived themselves into outer darkness. They refused to use the scriptures to learn what is right and wrong and how to live the way God has called them to live and will unfortunately pay the price for their actions.
This is why it is so important that the message of Grace, Faith and LOVE is so important, because we are in the last hour and those who don't wake up and realize the truth will not be prepared for what it going to happen to them and will be left behind.
Live in God's LOVE!
You don't want to miss the revelation found in this message! The Lord has kept me silent about this revelation for over 30 years and I was actually debating with Him if He really wanted me to release it right now.
Being a Casual Christian in the last days could very well jeopardize your opportunity to escape the Tribulation in the Rapture! Read the teaching below to learn why and how to be counted among the wise who are Raptured.
This revelation is super important!
Once you read it, share it with all your friends, they need to hear this also.

It is extremely important today that you be encouraged to stand up in your faith and resist the temptations of this world as it will attempt to entice you away and keep you unaware of its deceptions. God needs you now more than ever to be a shining light of righteousness in a world that is quickly growing darker each day. This darkness is easy to see, as we watch those around us, who we thought had enough common sense to know better, are doing things that ten years ago nobody would ever consider. As a Christian you have the power to protect yourself from such influences and to shine as a light to lead others away from these entrapments. But it requires you to take an active resolve and making a willing decision to stand apart from the darkness.
This Darkness is one of the seven parts of “The Mystery Babylon,” it is how deceptive influencers use Knowledge, Education and Communication in this world order to control the weak and foolish and it will be judged by God in the 5th Judgment of the Tribulation (Revelation 9:1-12 and 16:10-11). You can read more about this in: Tell Them to Prepare – A New Look at the book of Revelation. God needs every one of us right now to be actively pursuing those who are being pulled into this darkness, to be a guiding light to show them a better way. We can see this darkness that they cannot see growing in our world today and it will get increasingly darker because this world refuses to accept the ways of God. But by the time this darkness reaches its fullness at the judgment, it will become so great that it will seem more like insanity to us today. Jesus speaks of this in Matthew 6:23:
For those, who are in this darkness, the darkness has become so extreme that they consider that the darkness they have to be light or wisdom. This is a very dangerous place to be because they have reached a place where they consider themselves so wise they are unwilling to listen to and accept counsel from anyone who does not agree with what they consider truth. And if we are seeing the fruit of this emerging in our day, how bad will it get before it reaches the fullness at the Judgment of Darkness?
This is all the more reason that we must prepare ourselves today to stand against the attacks of the enemy and have the strength to resist the pressures to be overcome by the thoughts of this world. These deceptions pull on us to relax and take a more casual viewpoint on the importance of our relationship with Jesus. We can’t afford to become influenced as a Casual Christian today, as there are too many dangers involved with this attitude, including the loss of the opportunity to escape in the Rapture when that time comes, as we will get into shortly. But James makes his case for this with this warning:
We can’t just simply go to church on Sunday and listen to what is preached then head off into our week barely even remembering what was said, and Sunday church should not even be your primary source of spiritual food. As James says we should study the word constantly, until our lives begin to reflect what is in the Bible. James is drawing the picture that we are the ones who should be mirrors and the Bible should always be before our eyes, studying it every day until we begin to reflect Jesus through our lives. Joshua 1:8 tells us to study it day and night and to meditate upon what it says, because only then will we have the ability to succeed.
Stand strong in the conviction of your faith and don't allow yourself to be fooled into being a Casual Christian, for such a life gives the things of this world entrance in to corrupt your soul and brings darkness. This is a sure way to lose what you think you had. Keep your focus on the word of God, don’t just read it, but study it like you would study yourself in a mirror seeking to discover every little detail. Let the word penetrate deep within your heart and soul transforming you into the image and likeness of Jesus. Seek to become like Him in every area of your life. This will then open doors for God to bless you. If you think you are religious but live like this world and carelessly speak like this world speaks, then your religion and your salvation are worthless and the only thing you have done is fool yourself. For when the day of judgment comes, you will only discover, after it is too late, that you did not measure up to the image of Christ and will lose your soul because you did not value, the gift that you were given.
Too much of the Christian world today promotes a Casual Christianity where all you have to do is believe and you will be saved. But that is not what the scriptures teach. Romans 10:9 tells us that we have to believe Jesus was raise from the dead and then confess Him as Lord, then we will be saved. That is true, but it is not the whole truth. It’s wonderful that it God made it so easy to lead someone to the Lord, but without discipleship a great disservice is done because most people simply do not understand what it means to confess Jesus as their “Lord” or how to it should be applied in their lives. Christ did not call us to just save the lost, but to make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:16) and that requires teaching. If those who are saved are not discipled they will never learn how to make Jesus their Lord and if they never reach that understanding, then ultimately they will be faced with all the other scriptures warning what happens to Casual Christians on the Day of Judgment (John 15:1-14, Matt 7:21-23, Luke 6:43-49). They said the sinner’s prayer, they thought they were Christians, but if they were never taught or they never sought after a personal relationship with Jesus and really made Him their Lord, they will stand before Him in tears and cries for mercy, only to be cast into outer darkness. Everything in our salvation rests upon the strength or weakness of our personal relationship with Jesus, including whether we are accounted worthy of escaping in the Rapture.
The way we live today we don't use or understand the meaning of the word "Lord" like they did in Jesus' time. Back then a Lord was a person who owned you, not as a slave, but as a subject, a person who lived under the rule of a Lord. They had full control over every aspect of their subject’s life. They told them what to do, where to go, where to live, even who to marry. It didn't matter if it was something they wanted, if the Lord told them to work as a farmer or a blacksmith that was their job. They didn't have a choice in the matter. If someone had a benevolent Lord, they were well taken care of and they could ask for a favor and perhaps get it. But it was not their choice; it was their Lord's decision. Many of the Lords of this world have been considered harsh and difficult taskmasters.
But when we come to Jesus as our Lord, he is a benevolent Lord who wants only the best for those He watches over, his burden is light and his yoke is easy (Matt 11:28-30). He knows how to make our lives better and how to turn difficult situations around into blessings. But for Him to do these things we must do what He tells us to do. We have to live our lives according to His principles, not our own or those of this world. His ways are higher than our ways, but He wants to teach us His ways, if we will let Him, and in allowing Him to teach us a better way to live our lives are transformed for the better. But we must make Him the "LORD" of every area of our lives by studying His word, obeying what He tells us to do and in doing that He will teach us and lift us to a life that is higher and better than we could have ever imagined.
For those who have accepted Jesus as their Savior but never made Him the Lord of their lives they have no true relationship with Him and are like the five foolish virgins who lived as casual Christians only to miss out on the greatest blessing (The Rapture) when the opportunity to enter in with the Bridegroom came (Matt 25:1-13). I am not trying to be harsh here; I am speaking out of love trying to provide a warning before it is too late. God has called me as a prophet to prepare His Church for the Rapture and has given me many revelations and insight into understanding prophetic scripture. My spirit cries over the dangers that are coming and I don’t want anyone to be caught up in those things and suffer loss because they were unprepared. My concern here is not for those who have a heart for Jesus, who yearn for closer a relationship with Jesus. For them there is no fear where the Rapture is concerned. But those who have never cultivated a relationship with Him are at great risk. They may be saved, but without that relationship they will miss out on the glory.
Right now we are living at the ending of the greatest opportunity history will ever record, we are living in the "Times of the Gentiles," a time of grace where anyone, Jew or Gentile can become part of the Church, a new creature in Christ simply by making Jesus their Lord and in return they receive the free gift to become part of God’s inner circle in an intimate, family relationship with God simply by believing by faith. (James 2:17, 18) But this is not casual faith, it is for those who put action to their faith by developing that relationship, through studying His word and spending time with Him, otherwise they won’t get invited in. They may be saved and they may become one of His subjects in the Millennial Kingdom, but they will never experience being in the inner family of glorified saints as a ruler in His kingdom. This is reserved only for those who have intimate personal relationship with God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Once Jesus returns to rule from Jerusalem, the "Times of the Gentiles" will end and this kind of opportunity will never exist again. There is nothing in the Bible that teaches us that we will be able enter into the inner family of God after Christ's return, but it does say that those who do enter that glory with Jesus will be with Him forever. You don't want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity.
If you have not already done so, simply make the decision that you believe that Jesus was raised from the dead and is seated at the right hand of God, and then with your mouth declare that Jesus is your Lord. Once that is done, you just learned what “Lord” means, so commit yourself to following Him, by reading His word, praying and following after everything He has for you. Ask for the Holy Spirit to come and fill you and He will lead you in the way you should go. Develop that intimate relationship with Him and you are guaranteed to be included in the greatest blessing.
It vitally important right now that you count yourself among the wise and prepare yourself, for the coming of the Lord is drawing near. Don’t play games with your faith and fall asleep, for the time is fast approaching when the midnight announcement is given and when that happens it may be too late for those who did not pay attention and were not prepared. Let me show you what I mean.
Matthew 25 is much more than a parable, it is a prophecy. In fact Matthew 24 and 25 are all one teaching with Matthew 25 containing the three judgments of the last days: The Judgment of the Bride, the Church and the Nations. The story of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25:1-13, is the Judgment of the Bride and represents the Rapture of those who are wise. I’ll teach on the other two later. Right now let’s take a look at the Judgment of the Bride.
In the King James Version “bridesmaid” is translated as “virgin” and represents a young woman, ready to be married. Because they are all virgins, they have all accepted Jesus as their Savior, but not all were wise and developed a relationship with the Lord, so they are not prepared for what was going to happen (See: Luke 12:42-48). In this context the 10 bridesmaids represent the whole of the Christian community in the last days. The “oil” represents the Holy Spirit and the “lamps” a relationship with the Lord. Those who were foolish did not store up enough oil of the Holy Spirit to maintain a proper relationship with the Lord. These are the Casual Christians, the ones who are lazy and more interested in the things of this world than they are the things of God and when the time comes their oil will be too small to maintain the fire of a relationship with the Lord when it is most needed. When the Bridegroom is delayed the 10 bridesmaids get tired and fall asleep. At midnight just before the Bridegrooms arrival, a shout will be heard, an announcement that the Bridegroom is coming.
This announcement is not some simple message given from the pulpit or street corner. It is an announcement that is given with such earth shaking supernatural power that it wakes up all of Christendom from its slumber, but for those who are not prepared for this event it will be too late. This is not the shout that is part of the Rapture as describe in 1 Thess. 4:16. This announcement will be released a short time before the Rapture and will shake the entire world and while all of Christendom is startled awake by this announcement, most are not going to be expecting it. This announcement is an actual event and is the ultimate mission of this ministry and calling given when I was 12 and developed in my life more than 30 years ago, but at that time I was commanded to keep silent until the appointed time. God has taken careful steps to keep this message hidden, even holding me back because, given the chance, I could have missed the timing of the Lord, but today He is releasing it and calling His Church to prepare for the Rapture. Even though the timing of this announcement is still in God’s hands, there is not much time left and He wants you to be prepared for it now. This event is also mentioned in the book of Revelation as one of the events that will happen during the Sixth Seal, just before the Rapture, as outlined in the book: Tell Them to Prepare – A New Look at the book of Revelation. It is also the reason why the Lord gave me the book and kept that hidden until it was time to reveal the mystery of the last hour to prepare His Church.
Once this announcement occurs the entire Church is startled, awoken and brought to its feet along with the rest of the world, some in celebration for those who are prepared, but fear for those of the Church who have been foolish. They will beg the wise ones to help them prepare for the Rapture, but there just isn’t enough time for them to develop a personal intimate relationship with Jesus in the time left. Jesus is returning for a bride without spot or wrinkle, but these foolish ones, because they wanted to live a Casual Christian life are still covered with the deceptions of this world are unprepared. They seek and struggle to develop that relationship, but there just isn’t enough time. While these foolish ones run off to seek after the relationship they so desperately need, the Bridegroom comes and takes the five wise bridesmaids in (the Rapture) to the marriage feast and the door is locked. Afterward when the foolish ones realize what has happened, they plead, crying outside to be let in also, but the only reply Jesus gives them is: “Believe me, I don’t know you.” It wasn’t their salvation that qualified them for the Rapture and escape from the Tribulation; it was their relationship with Jesus, which they did not care about. (See: 1 Cor 10:1-12) Because they didn’t have a personal intimate relationship with Jesus they were not prepared for Him when He came. Likewise do not think that your salvation is your ticket out of here in the Rapture, because the scriptures do not teach that. There are many more scriptures that reveal the penalty for those who live Casual Christians lives and who allow themselves to be caught up in the ways of this world, they will miss out on the greatest blessing and have to suffer through the Tribulation. This is not an issue of doctrine; it is an issue of the Word. It is clearly spelled out in the scriptures for those who are willing to take off the rose colored glasses of their “Traditions” and study the word for what it says. The Rapture is reserved for those who have committed their life to Christ, who have a personal, intimate relationship with him who will be called to join Him in glory on that day and on that day the door will be locked.
So, what happens to the five foolish bridesmaids? They must endure the Tribulation and afterward will be in Judgment of the Church in Matthew 25:14-30, just before the Judgment of the Nations Matthew 25:31-46. After the Rapture there will be only one other way to join those who have been glorified in the Rapture and that will be by dying for Christ during the Tribulation, afterward they will be raise up with a glorified body. There is no other mention in scripture of this ever happening again. That is why it is called an encouragement and a blessing. It is also a warning and motivation for the others not to head to the hills and hide through the Tribulation. Those who are found worthy in the Judgment of the Church will be saved and brought into the Millennial Kingdom as subjects, but they will never be part of the glorified family of God. Even in this Judgment of the Church there are those who have no understanding of the grace that was given to them and bury or hide it only to be judged wicked and cast into outer darkness because they didn’t value their gift and did not understand their Lord.
Therefore, since God has released this revelation into His family, be aware that the clock is counting down. Do not live your life as a Casual Christian any more. Commit your life to Christ and look steadfastly into the perfect law of liberty. Let it transform your life until you look exactly in like Jesus in every area of your life, then when the midnight announcement is given you will be prepared for that day of glorification and blessing.
Live in God’s Peace.
The revelation in this message is why God gave me the ministry of the Restoration of Prophetic Understanding and the book: Tell Them to Prepare - A New Look at the book of Revelation.
Don't forget to share this message as everyone needs to be prepared for these things.
