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?
Living With Confidence
God woke me from my sleep this morning with the following words resonating in my spirit.
"When the PASSION of our LOVE for JESUS reaches such a FEVERED pitch that we want nothing in this world to get in the way of that LOVE and we are willing to throw off ALL worldly traditions including Christmas and Easter, simply because they were never mentioned in HIS WORD and pursue HIS Celebrations because they were, then GOD is going to release the GLORY in our LIVES in such a way we won't be able to contain it. That is the PASSION of the FATHER!
There is a lot here to meditate on here and it echos the cry of the Father in Ephesians.
God is not looking to take away things we enjoy. He is looking to get the world out of us, so He can put more of heaven into us, creating a Bride without spot or wrinkle who has no desire for the things of this world. This is all part of turning the heart of the children to the fathers and the heart of the fathers to their children. As prophesied by Malachi and repeated by Jesus himself.

FYI: Yesterday was the day of the New Moon celebration for July 6-7, 2016. I was alone most of the day working and took the time to simply celebrate God and thank Him for that day of renewal and worship. In return He gave the above word as a blessing for you.
To learn more about this celebration read: God's Appointed New Moon.
Live in God's LOVE!
In the beginning God set the Sun, Moon and stars to be used as appointed times and seasons.
Historically our translators and teachers assumed this was talking about the seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. But as we approach the end of this age and the restoration of the Jewish people our understanding of these scriptures has taken on a deeper and more important meaning.
When we understand the full meaning of these words we discover that these "signs" in the heavens also means signals to alert us that something is about to happen, like the recent four blood moons that occurred over the past couple of years. And the word "seasons" is the Hebrew word moed, which mean an appointed time set by the Lord or a special time of meeting with Him. Most Christians are unaware that many of these "moeds" point to of the Festivals of the Lord such as: The Passover, Festival of Trumpets, Festival of Tabernacles. But there is one "moed" or appointed Festival chosen by God that is mostly unknown.
For most of us the mention of a New Moon means the time when the moon is blacked out, but that is not what the Bible is referring to. The New Moon mentioned in the Bible is actually the first sliver of light that appears at the end of the New Moon phase, which can last for up to three days. This first sliver of light is referred to as the Crescent New Moon and is considered in the Bible the beginning of a new month. The Bible teaches us that everything must be established on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Historically witnesses would watch to see the crescent moon appear then run and report it to the high priest who, after two reports, would sound the trumpet, announcing the beginning of the new month.
In the Bible God has set this as an appointed time of celebration for His people to seek His face and receive a blessing. Until now Christians have been mostly ignorant of the appointed times of God. But God is now bringing the Final Restoration mentioned in Acts 3:21 and other scriptures to our attention. And with that restoration He is calling us to return to His ways of doing things and meeting Him at His appointed times.
In the beginning the Christians followed all the festivals of the Lord and His specials days. Until Constantine, the Emperor of Rome became a Christian, but he turned his back on the ways of God and introduced the new religion of replacement theology, which abandoned the appointed times God had established in His word and created substitute celebrations to turn the hearts of the people away from Gods appointed feasts and setup his own festivals as substitute to the festivals of the Lord.
However, this was not the first time this has happened as the Bible tells this exact same story beginning with the death of king Solomon in 1 Kings 11. Solomon's heart was turned from the Lord by his pagan wives and God sent a prophet and anointed Jeroboam to be given 10 of the tribes of Israel. God promised to establish Jeroboam kingdom if he followed the ways of the Lord. But when Jeroboam acquired those 10 tribes he sought to establish his kingdom by his own might and broke all ties with Israel and in doing that he setup new gods and new festivals turning the heart of the people away from God. When Jeroboam did this God cursed him and his descendants swearing to wipe his heritage from the earth. If God is that jealous of His festivals to curse the king and his family, it tells us just how important these festivals are to God.
Many Christians spend their lives seeking the presence of the Lord asking Him for a favor or blessing in many different ways. Yet God has shown us in His word that He has already set appointed times when He has promised to meet with His people and bless us. And if God has done this, then why are we struggling for His favor when He has already told us He will meet with us at those appointed times of His blessing?
Here in lies a very special revelation. All of these appointed times and festivals are found only by our desire to seek out when they will occur, because each of them happens based upon the lunar cycle. If we truly want the blessing of the Lord, to be there when the King is waiting to meet with us, can't we make the little effort it takes to seek to be there when He appears? Because these appointed times are based upon the lunar calendar they change from month to month and year to year. We reveal our passion for Him by seeking to know those appointed times and being there ready to meet Him and receive His blessing. We have but to ask ourselves, are we going to continue seeking God's blessings under our own effort or are we going to receive the King's blessing by being there at His appointed times?
The Lord has revealed the importance of these things in:
If God has promised to bless us for keeping His holy days, why would we ignore them? We have a guaranteed blessing, all we have to do is show up.
These things will also be celebrations in the Millennial kingdom.
Today (Sunday, May 8, 2016) is one of those days. It is Rosh Chodesh the Crescent New Moon, the beginning of the new month. The time of God's appointed celebration to bless the Lord and be blessed by the Lord. It is a time of celebration with family and friends and look forward to the favor of God in the coming month. To thank the Lord for His blessing at this time the Jews have a prayer praising the Lord.
“Praised are you, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who created the skies with his word, and all heaven’s host with the breath of his mouth. He gave them appointed times and roles, and they never miss their cues, doing their Creator’s bidding with gladness and joy. He is the true creator who acts faithfully, and he has told the moon to renew itself. It is a beautiful crown for the people carried by God from birth, who will likewise be renewed in the future in order to proclaim the beauty of their creator for his glorious majesty. Praised are you, O Lord, who renews new moons.”
Take this time as an opportunity to worship the Lord and to join with family and friends for a celebration meal. For the Lord has blessed you and given you a new month of favor and blessing to be poured out on you, because you have met Him at His appointed time and honored Him by keeping His Holy New Moon.
Live in God's Love!
Are you paying attention or ignoring the warnings?
Ezekiel 33:1-6 (NLT)
"Once again a message came to me from the Lord: 2 “Son of man, give your people this message: ‘When I bring an army against a country, the people of that land choose one of their own to be a watchman. 3 When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. 4 Then if those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. 5 They heard the alarm but ignored it, so the responsibility is theirs. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. 6 But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.’"
This was part of my daily reading and thought it was just as relevant today as it was back in Ezekiel's day. The alarms are going off all over the world and this ministry is just one of them. We are sounding the alarm to prepare for the coming war and it is your responsibility to prepare for it. The responsibility to respond is on our own heads, not the church, not our spouse. We must be aware and awake of what is going on and part of that responsibility is rightly dividing the Word of God. Recognizing the truth from deception, for there will many deceptions you will face. This ministry holds to giving you the strictest form of interpretation and believes that everything must be built upon at least two or three witnesses within the scriptures. We will always lead you to Jesus never away from Him. In the scriptures a false prophet is identified, not on if his word comes true, but if he attempts lead people away from the ways of God. The purpose of The Final Restoration is to bring the Bride of Christ back to the ways of God and will never violate that calling.
Are you heeding the warnings of The Watchmen?
The responsibility is your own.
Live in God's LOVE!
Now after more than 30 years the revelation God commanded me keep secret until the appointed time has come! When God called me and told me that I was a "Timepiece" in His Kingdom, He told me what my calling was, then commanded me not reveal that calling until His appointed time. The full story can be read in My Personal Testimony. With the coming of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana and the fourth and last of the Blood Moons God has fully released this ministry to share everything that has been kept hidden for more than 30 years for this appointed time.
Find out what that calling is by clicking and reading the announcement below.
Everything in my life has been focused for this point in time.
To bring forth the message of the Lord and prepare the Bride for its day of glory.
Are you prepared for the coming of the Lord?
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.

This teaching has taken a lot longer than I expected. The revelation of this began back in November 2014 and God told me to write the article, but the enemy put up a whole lot of blockages along the way. Even now it is not finished and I could teach on this subject for a long time. But the meat is ready, so take a seat and hang on for an insight few have ever experienced.

New insight into the most important aspect of understanding the nature of God and the reason for Jesus.
Live in God's LOVE!
There has been a lot of speculation and claims from many who are declaring that the Rapture of the Bride can happen at any moment. But what they do not realize is that Jesus declared that before He returns there must be a Final Restoration of understanding of scriptures. That restoration is manifesting itself right now and it is showing us that many of the things we believe about the last days and the Rapture are based in interpretation of scriptures that violate very important commandments given by God warning us not to do the very things we did anyway, which corrupted our understanding of Bible Prophecy and blinded us for centuries.
These traditions are breaking off the eyes of Christians who have received this revelation and now see that the book of Revelation has been hidden from us until this appointed time. In that revelation we discover that the book of Revelation is not one story, but actually seven stories and when we apply Biblical principles we discover that the Rapture is mentioned three times in three different stories that all happen as one event at the same time. But before that event happens there are many things that must happen before that day manifests.
Below is a quick and simple outline of the events that must happen before the Rapture can occur. Read it, share it and prepare yourself and your family what must happen before the Lord comes to take His Bride.

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!
What is the "Fear of the LORD?"
Those who Love the Lord with all their hearts, mind, soul and strength, and love their neighbors as themselves.
These are the ones who "Fear the LORD!"
Malachi 4:2-4 (NLTse)
2 "But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture. 3 On the day when I act, you will tread upon the wicked as if they were dust under your feet," says the L ord of Heaven's Armies.
4 "Remember to obey the Law of Moses, my servant—all the decrees and regulations that I gave him on Mount Sinai for all Israel.
