No longer the Time of Favor.


A Word that came to me yesterday for the church while I was meditating and praying about some crisis issues that have come up.

I am calling. I am calling because the time is short. I am calling for your faithfulness. The time is coming and is at hand where your comfort zone is to be removed. You pray for good things. You pray for comfortable things. You pray for wealth. At one time these things would have been added to you if your heart were Mine, but now you hold your heart as a ransom for things.

You say, but I have loved You. No you haven’t. You say, I have served You. No you haven’t. You say, I have given to You. No you haven’t

The Fallen One has called for your testing. Skin for skin, bone for bone. Remove the material comforts and we will see who serves The Lord or who serves me. We will see.

I have granted that testing. I will test you and many will fail, only to be given over to that final test. I am moving and time is mine. I will call My faithful and remove My lamp stand. Then those who have been deceived, fooled, will be left behind. The day is fast approaching when My people will no longer want to be a lamp on a stand, a city on a hill. They will be in hiding, waiting for my return while Death waits at their door.

To my faithful I say this, your love for Me has been proved, and continues to be proved, stand fast, stay the course, I will soon return to call you up to Me.


God seems to be repeatedly hammering the prosperity message, the faith in believing for wealth and prosperity. Jesus said repeatedly not to worry about those things, God would provide for your needs. Our job is to concentrate on the task at hand, winning as many to Christ as possible in the short time left.

God is going to be removing the protection. Perhaps this is the “implosion” talked about by Joel Rosenberg. A time where none will be immune. I’m reminded of the scene from the movie “Titanic” where the antagonist, Caledon Hockley, approaches the last boat and gets refused. He says,”but I thought we had an agreement?”, then the ship’s officer pulls the wad of bills out of his pocket and says, ” Your money can’t save you now.”.

I don’t know if this means that the stores we’ve put away will be destroyed or apprehended. But I do know that the time of favor is being removed. In the USA, the time is coming where standing for Christ could and maybe will get you shot or beheaded. I do know the church will soon be moved under ground, whether it be before or after the redeemed church is taken up.

But this thing is sure, the eternal results of putting off Jesus is worse than the things coming toward us right now. If this is the first time you’ve seen this message and it seems frightening, and you wonder why in the world would you want to put yourself through this, take heart, everyone will ask that question at least one more time. But the fact is, this time of “suffering”, if you will, is short compared to the eternal suffering ahead for those that refuse to follow Christ. This message is for you, if you haven’t surrendered to Christ, read the Bible, see what awaits you if you don’t, then take this time to accept Him as your Savior and King.

I'm a musician and worship leader, intent on following wherever God leads and directs me, with His leading's in the Spirit and others bonking me on the head ( hopefully not much of the latter). My life experiences are in blue collar and white collar (engineering) employment, political office, lay ministries, national competition in track and cross country and most importantly marriage and raising a family. God has given me a unique set of skills and character to serve Him and a passion for doing it.

  1. My dear brother,

    Lift up your head! Lift up your head, for you redemption drawith nigh! For this is the Spirit of the bride: And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

    This door is not shut, otherwise we would all be completely ruined. Praise God as David did, for with regard to God’s judgment He is a righteous Judge and His judgement is sweet to those who love and fear Him. Psalm 33 among the many, many forever promises of God through the salvation of His one and only son Jesus Christ, with whom we are heir.

    1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. 2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.

    This is a nation that has, like no other nation, access to the Word of God. Most likely all who live in this pegan land has heard Revelation and things concerning the end of this age, this time. As Jesus Christ rebuked those in Matthew 23, blind guides he called them.

    3 Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. 4 For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. 6 They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, 7 greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’ 8 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. 9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. 11 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. 13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

    Do not shut the door…God is very much alive! All nations have trembled at the awesome mighty hand of God who judges all men, at all times. Lift up you head! Tell the people of God’s love, forgiveness, mercy, goodness, kindness and the salvation that is offered through His Son Jesus Christ. Stand as a witness to the very salvation which you have received -Do not shut the door. Do not hide the light of the Lord God Almighty! Stand up! Stand up, and be counted among those who enter in.

    And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

    • That’s correct, not to shut the door. It’s time to actively, with expediency, seek the lost and lift them to Christ. My feeling is that the Word referenced those left behind when the redeemed church is lifted up. Those listening to the teachings of the emerging church and the false prophets, those holding fast to the dead traditions of the dead mainline churches. When the Redeemed church is lifted those left behind will be the ones with knowledge, but no relationship, whose hearts will burn within them at their loss and then, finally, turn to the one true God and Savior. They are the ones who will be underground, waiting for death or Jesus, whichever comes first.

      • 😀 Yes! It is so wonderful, so exciting to tell people God loves them. That is His true heart, he so loved the world and wants that none should perish. More and more I’ve made who is, who isn’t less and less a concern and am learning to put my confidence in Jesus knowing whom belongs to him.

        I heard some real interesting stats from a sweetly humbled pastor of 67 years -there is a 50 something percent of the world population, areas that have yet to hear the gospel. He told of a small village in a part of Africa that had never been preached the gospel, when he gave the message a young man approached him, long story short, he said all my people (parents, siblings) are dead, if you knew this, why did it take you so long to get here? I just wept.

        I am hoping and praying believers will leave reporting and “gossiping” about what the wicked do, stop fighting with each other over theology and remember why any of us can even have the slightest knowledge of God -He loved the world (His creation), sent His Son Jesus Christ (or for those who have conviction of His name in Hebrew Yahusha, to which I too love…) and gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit. God commissioned us through His Son, whom gave us the command to love as He has loved us, and to tell others about Him. We all have a testimony of ‘once I was lost, but now I’ve been found… HE saved a wretch like me, I know I can’t boast about anything; I need the Holy Spirit to keep me, keep my heart always mindful continually chastening me to love concurs all, covers a multitude of sin, expressing the very heart of our Heavenly Father.

        ok, that it… 😀 I love you brother -truly, sincerely with much affection from our Father! Thank you for putting yourself out here as you have, I pray your (our, the body) boldness to speak to the hearts of nations about the matters of salvation and the love of God the Father and Jesus Christ his only Son, and the mercy He has shown your (my, our) life.

        Sincere blessings from our Heavenly Father -HE LOVES US!!!!!! whoot whoot 😀 Peace be with you!

  2. I’ll be glad to be left behind because our precious Messiah is returning to this place. He’s coming here… not us going anywhere. After the seventh shofar He’ll return to rule with an iron rod. The ralse rapture doctrine is another man made myth and tradition of men. Men take scriptures out of context and build complete religions around then totally being in error.

    • That’s fine, providing you survive being left behind. Like I told my son who claims to be an atheist,” I believe in life eternal and will spend that forever with the Christ Jesus. If I’m wrong, I’ll die and be a fleeting essence and no more. If I’m right, what have you got in your favor?”.

      Your error or my error, time will tell, but your arrogance suggests that being left behind may hold something even worse for your future.

  3. On that note brother, I’m a Natsarim who believes the scriptures and Messianic writings to the T. I know how men have inherited the lies of their fathers and their fathers fathers. Yahuah (God… which is a title and not His name by the way) is waking His people from the spiritual slumber and hopefully you’ll be awakened also which is my prayer for all. If His name was jesus christ then I’d be all aboard the crazy train that ensues but His name is The Hebrew “Yahusha” (Yah’s Savior). My arrogance is not arrogance as you say but a confidence given by the Ruach Ha’ Qodesh (Holy Spirit) that comes from actually studying the word at it’s origin which is the ancient hebrew texts. The rapture theory wasn’t even heard of until the 1500’s and didn’t really take off until the 1830’s with John Nelson Darby at the wheel. Subject,object and context is the goal here concerning those rapture scriptures so wrongly taken out of context. One has to ask themself if the rapture doesn’t take place and one already had their mentality set for it would one endure until the end like scripture says or would one freak out and give in to the beast system? If our Creator has something even worse for me in the future it will be His decision and I will fully accept it as so but not the decision of a man. Nothing personal brother but no man knows the mind of Yahuah…
    Luke 17:33-37.
    33“Whoever seeks to save his life shall
    lose it and whoever loses his life shall
    preserve it.
    34“I say to you, in that night there shall
    be two in one bed, the one shall be taken
    and the other shall be left.
    35“Two shall be grinding together, the
    one shall be taken and the other shall
    be left.
    36“Two shall be in the field, the one
    shall be taken and the other shall be
    37And they answering, said to Him,
    “Where, (Where were they taken?) Master?” And He said to them,
    “Where the body is, there also the eagles
    shall be gathered together.” (Birds that feast on their flesh).

    All the ones ever “Taken” in the scriptures were not taken to nice places.

    • “One has to ask themself if the rapture doesn’t take place and one already had their mentality set for it would one endure until the end like scripture say”

      Answer: Yes, for your argument to hold water the individual would be waiting for a date that would knowingly pass.

      “or would one freak out and give in to the beast system?”

      Answer: that was pretty moronic of you.

      “If our Creator has something even worse for me in the future it will be His decision and I will fully accept it as so but not the decision of a man. Nothing personal brother but no man knows the mind of Yahuah…”

      Answer: ????? Huh? How do you call me brother when you stand opposed to me? No one knows the mind of God, but God speaks to and through men.

  4. One more little thing brother… do you and countless others believe you’re going to escape the judgements on the world by flying away? That would nulify all the martyrs before you wouldn’t it? Are you that special? Yahuah is no respector of persons… this is what I have in my favor.

    • “do you and countless others believe you’re going to escape the judgements on the world by flying away?”

      Answer: Possibly, doubtful, but possibly.

      Um, John wasn’t martyred. Or is he null and void.

      John 15:9
      “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.

      John 16:27
      No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.

      “Are you that special? ”

      Answer: Yes, Jesus loves me and the Father loves me.

  6. It seems to me that anyone that simply disagrees with a “self proclaimed prophet” is opposing, and moronic (Which calling someone is taught against in scripture Mattithyahu 5:22). We’re all brothers and sisters in the Father whether you like it or not. We all come from the same Creator but not all will be welcomed into His kingdom. As for waiting for a date to pass… it would be pretty easy to know when the anti-messiah has come wouldn’t it because you and all the other rapture theorists would still be here. I wasn’t quoting John I was quoting Luke. You seem to be grabbing at straws for arguments sake. Just remember that judgment starts in the pulpit and with the leaders so be very careful about what you proclaim because all the signs are pointing to a false prophet.

    • ” I wasn’t quoting John I was quoting Luke”

      Answer: I was bringing the full context.

      “We all come from the same Creator but not all will be welcomed into His kingdom.”

      Answer: A consideration you should be making considering Jesus condemnation of the religious and “experts”

      “so be very careful about what you proclaim because all the signs are pointing to a false prophet.”

      Answer: With vigorous examination before anything is said. The signs, according to your religious assertions, may point that way but your assertions so far have no merit. So far you’ve entered here to engage in religious debate over trifles.Straining at a gnat while ignoring the greater matter. Jesus was very clear and condemning on that. As mentioned before, your arrogance precedes you and condemns you, and on that day you will ask, did I not serve you and He will answer, I know you not.

      Rapture or not, time is very short and your energies are best suited finding the lost for Christ, instead of wasting the time of one of His own in useless debate.

  8. ‘I don’t know if this means that the stores we’ve put away will be destroyed or apprehended.’

    I read just before I got here how easily ‘hackers’ can steal it all and crash our electronic based system

    And then we have the EMP option which would bring us immediately back to the 1800’s where life was so much simpler and much more difficult.
    I really think if we haven’t already learned to rely on the Lord for everything by now it’s going to get nearly impossible when the lights go out, no hospitals, no way to call the police,no Wal Mart, no refrigeration,etc.

    Faith is always tested, isn’t it.

    • Yes it is. Interesting you say that because Sue and I feel we are being led to buy a farm far from here that’s sustainable and one of the buildings could easily be turned into a MASH type hospital. Sue is a nurse and has felt for a couple years that she would be called on in that kind of scenario.

    • I am not so sure an emp will ever occur. Anti/like christ needs technology to succeed. Whereas FATHER, can use earthquakes, volcanoes, blow on a fire that spreads to cause enough destruction to discipline. However that paradox of technology will always be there to tempt the saints. “Who” will you trust in those hours? I try to remember the great paradox that we are coming into: in as much as things seem to become greater and greater-our knowledge, our technology, our ‘skills’, so will the pain increase. Genesis 11. YAHWEY will not be mocked. Likechrist will tempt man to keep trying to ‘attain’ to salvation, to god like stature, and yet HE will not let them. It is HIS great mercy that HE stops us in our tracks for HE does not want us to be like satan who was with FATHER and had a lot. I try and remember the parable of the prodigal son. The older brother was ‘always with the Father and had everything’. Why would satan trade everything for an image of everything. FATHER wants us to have the real thing! Amen! And we will, soon and very soon. Brethren tred the waters a little longer. It always gets rough before the break. FATHER asked me two years ago, “if the pain never ends will you deny ME?” I said no. I counted the cost and I continue to count the cost. Count it with me brethren. We suffer together , so that together HE will lift us up in due time. If KING YAHSHUA could do it, HE promises we can do it all through HIS strength. HE will never leave us nor forsake us! Pray for your brethren around the world that suffer terribly!! Humble yourselves quickly!

      • Amen, sister Deirdre!
        He is always with the one’s who love Him. I long to be face to face with Jesus Christ. Until then, I will trust Him with my heart, soul & mind; and I will pray for the strength to do His will.
