Two Kings

Deuteronomy 3:21  ” And I commanded Joshua at that time saying, thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your GOD hath done unto the Two Kings: so shall the Lord do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.” Before Israel could enter the promise land GOD HAD TO DESTROY the Two Kingdoms of Og and Sihon. God chose Moses to destroy these two kings for they were Preventing Israel from entering the Promise Land.  What two kings are preventing my promise?  What two sins must I overcome in order to reach God’s promise? For myself and for most Christians, I would venture, it is the Television and the Radio. These two Kings prevent Christians from ever entering the will and promises of God.  Once you reach the Promise, New Levels and New Kings to conquer, but What two kings are Preventing Your Promise?

I uncovered this truth as I was searching throughout the Holy Bible for instruction as  to how to gain the fear of God and a very wise friend gave me this scripture found in Deuteronomy 17:19, and the passage was concerning the duties of the future kings of Israel, and what they must do in order to please God; which for me was a giant leap forward, and it has forever changed the way I  approach God and read His Word as it reads: “And it (the book of Deuteronomy) shall be with him and he shall read therein all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord…” I firmly believe it is a lack of fear of God that causes Christians to sin, a lack of fear and an improper view of who God is. Today the Almighty God is reduced to nothing more than an ignoble afterthought, not worthy of our thoughts or praise. Thinking about God is man’s first step in Philosophy towards true illumination, and without doubt, the greatest thought the mind can assent to is the thought of God. Not having a correct concept of God leave open the doors for the world to fill our minds with their unworthy, worldly views of God, and nothing can accomplish this with greater efficiency and success than the Television and the Radio.

  Jesus spake expressively in Matthew 12:39 that ‘an evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas (Jonah).’ Thus, I found myself searching the book of Jonah looking for some word or sign or something relevant to this generation’s liberal lifestyles.  The harder you look for God, I find, the more you see, ‘for he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.’ This word from God was my reward: Jonah 2:8 ‘They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.’  So then I look for ‘lying vanities’ elsewhere in the Word (‘for out the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established’) and I find Psalms 31:6 ‘I have hated them that regard lying vanities.’ This is extremely Strong language from God.  Forsaking one’s mercy can be stated or translated as: “abandoning one’s Pardon or giving up one’s forgiveness.”  Then I realized every time I turn on the T.V. I am observing ‘lying vanities.’ Webster’s definition of vanity is “idle show; nothingness.”  Those who watch lying vanities, or idle shows, forsake their own mercy from God, and abandon their forgiveness.  This is an astounding revelation; a revelation that demands a response. When we get our facts from the same source as our fiction it blurs the lines of reality.  Furthermore, within five seconds of turning on the T.V. the viewer, via a scientifically perfected strobe technology,  is in a hypnotic state and therefore becomes manageable and susceptible to falsehoods. Erasmus wrote that a ‘man’s mind is so formed that it is far more susceptible to falsehoods than to truth.’ We are naive by nature, and coupled with technology, MK Ultra Programming, and the sinister nature of ‘them,’ that is the banking cartels that are pulling the strings of the mass media, Christians find themselves ‘like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed.’ ‘The Vast Wasteland’ that is the television prevents most Christians from ever fulfilling God’s plan for their lives, it lulls them to sleep with reality t.v. programming, sports programming (which is become nothing more than a prideful worship of the creature more than the creator), news programming, science and history programming designed to erode and erase faith from the hearts of saints, pornographic advertising and television programming of all shapes and sizes, distracting and deceiving and destroying the foundations of faith, causing Christians to “forsake their own Mercy.”
  The Radio, as well; these are to be tools for Evangelism not toys for entertainment. The very nature of music,  the origin and source of Pop Music, Contemporary, Rap, Metal, &c., are rebellious by design. (I will be adding an article in the future that exposes in more detail the Satanic Music Industry, however no one unveils the Music World better than “The Vigilant Citizen”, and No one deciphers and exposes movies better than “Jay’s Analysis”) We Must Be Diligent that we not allow the world and all that is in it to rule over our hearts and lives. Noah Webster stated that ‘diligence is the philosopher’s stone that turns every thing to gold. ‘
  We must remove far from us these (Jonah 2:8) lying vanities, and as II John instructs us ‘receive them not into our homes, neither bid them God Speed, For he that biddeth them God speed is a partaker of their evil deeds.’ That means we can not look back, do not even dare to say goodbye to this world; may I remind you it was lot’s wife who looked back on Sodom and Gomorrah and turned to a pillar of salt; But let me leave you with this hope; Moses after reminding Joshua in Deut 3:21 of all God has done to these Two Kings and the destruction of their kingdoms, (and I believe he will also destroy these two kingdoms of today as well before our eyes) in verse 32 he boldly encourages  with these words ‘ Ye shall NOT fear them, for the Lord your God shall fight for you.’
  It is our duty when the Lord reveals to us through His Word a revelation, to tell our brothers and sisters; let your life be a light, in Jesus’ name.
  “But if the watchman see the sword come and blow not the trumpet and the people not be warned, his blood shall I require at the watchman’s hand.”  Ez. 33:6



Convey My Heart

  I am simply writing this for the sake of  posterity, that perhaps maybe some good come to my children’s children.  Plato said ‘a wise man speaks because he has something to say, a fool speaks because he has to say something.’ I pray my speaking is a results of wisdom and not foolishness, and my transfer of thoughts to you will remain profitable;  ‘for Jesus himself testifieth a prophet  hath no honor in his own country,’  not that I am a prophet.
I have been home now for a few weeks, after a longterm stay in rehabilitation center and even in my family`s christian home, the world persists, as it does in I dare say, every home in the union. It is of no fault of their own, the world is the material, and we also are of the same material, so worldly material is easily disguised, and the cracks in the resistance  are born, and through the processes of time and nature the world has flooded the lives of the elect, and marred and distorted and ‘changed the truth into a lie.’  I speak as though it does not touch my shores, and  this is true in part, as the cracks begin to appear in my own levy; yet we are to ‘keep ourselves unspotted from the world,’ ‘hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.’  How are we to survive?
A man was recently, and forgive my spotty recollection, explaining to me why the early church had so much greater a power than this last days church. His theory was the early church’s power was a result of physical persecutions, whereas the church of today’s persecutions  are psychological in nature; you see the adversary will not make the same  mistake twice, and the evidence is found right before our eyes.
In Russia, before the fall of communism, there was a united church, albeit underground, and their power was greatly diminished at the fall of the iron curtain as denominations and doctrines rushed in with their worldy attachments, and carved the Russian church into sects and pieces. Their power was a result of their unity due to their physical persecution and their need and reliance on God.
As I sit here today I contemplate my need for God, I contemplate my own power in Jesus Christ as I recall my life two years ago, waking up and lying next to me in bed, was a woman who was pregnant with my child, a woman who only a month and two weeks earlier accepted my betrothal, when we exchanged the rings that united us before God.  I will never be able to explain, or recall in entirety the great fear I experienced, as I awoke; and the once alive, beautiful, child of God lay motionless,  without life and breath. Two years later I think of Jacob, as Genesis describes, his brother Esau was coming to meet him, and the Word of God describes Jacob being in great fear of his brother.  That night as his family passed over the ford Jabok, Jacob remained alone, in great fear, for he loved his family and could not bear to have them taken from him and killed before his eyes, as was a cruel custom in those days.  In great fear did Jacob wrestle with God, and it was that night his named was changed to Israel.
In great fear I awoke as my newly betrothed love lay lifeless, in great fear did I call upon the Lord, in great fear did I begin CPR, desperately and with all my all try to restore her life. So great was my fear that I  was forever changed by that moment, and like Jacob (who forever after ‘halted on his thigh’) I too received a token to remember it by.
I know another great fear, a fear that in my feebleness of language shall attempt to convey. After waking up that Saturday morning, a year and a half later,  I was strapped down to a bed in ICU (my 9th visit in my life to an ICU) tubes running everywhere, on life support, and a new perspective on life presented itself to me; even waking up in the same hospital, the same floor, and perhaps the same room that ultimately my love’s last breaths were breathed for her, gave me a new perspective. Whether or not that perspective is profitable for God remains to be seen. Whether or not this perspective  can help drive me towards perfection also remains to  be seen.
For all pain is profitable, and Solomon declares this in Ecclesiastes 7:3 ” sorrow is better than laughter for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.”  But I find myself disillusioned, and disconnected from this truth at times. I find myself in great fear even know, likened only by this sensation of feeling:  have you ever imagined yourself holding to a kite or a balloon that with a gust of wind begins to pull you away from this earth and into the air ever drifting further and further and further away from earth, and the fear is so great for if you let go, surely you will fall to the ground, instantly destroyed by the impact, and the longer you hold on the higher you climb and the more certain the destruction that awaits if you let go; and herein lies the great fear, for if I let go I will surely die and if I hang on I will surely die,  and every moment that passes the greater the fear becomes.
I tell you now, and God revealed this to me as I wrote this one week ago, that He is that kite or that balloon, and as I cling to Him, I cling to the only lifeline I have. For the Spirit speaks expressively that though I cannot see it, If I but trust in Him, He is lifting me out of my mess and carrying me through fog and uncertainty to a Higher Place, to a mountaintop just over the way there.  Just over there, but I cannot see it in the flesh, all I  see is the Earth and all the things I can cope with, and all my tricks and all my comfort zones disappearing further away from me, and if I let go now and fall back into them, I will surely die, but if I can but Hang On, and cling to that lifeline God is telling me I will be carried to a higher place and my ‘feet set on a solid rock,’ and as Peter so perfectly stated in I Pet 5:10 that Christ Jesus will ” After that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” What a great promise, Just hang on cause God is carrying you also through this suffering, and will set you on a foundation that only comes after one ‘suffers a while.’ A foundation of suffering that will make you perfect, establish you, strengthen you and settle you, saith GOD.

  God teach me to hang on, and help me to stay unspotted from this world and give me the courage that compels me toward you, resisting this world and diligently seeking you, in Jesus Name,
