The Rain Stopped

I Kings 17:1   And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

Mark 4:39  And he [Jesus] arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

AOC’s failed “rain dance”.

I Kings 18:20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.

21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.

23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:

24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.

26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.

27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.

28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down.

31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the Lord came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:

32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.

33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.

34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.

35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.

36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.

37 Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.

38 Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.

40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

The Problem with Dates

There are people who are focused on the date of the Second Coming of Christ.

Jesus clearly stated that no man knows the day, or the hour, but the Father only.  He gave a clue as to the conditions, but not the date.

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 

The problem with being date conscious is that it leads to discouragement, disappointment, and even to a point of abandoning faith when something does not happen the way one “thinks” it should happen.

Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

 

This is a grave danger.

Rather than look to dates, we should be looking to “occupy” until Jesus comes.

Luke 19:12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

 

Luke 12:40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?

42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

 

What that looks like for each individual differs according to their responsibilities before God, gifts and callings, and place in the body of Christ.  Nevertheless, we each have jobs to do and it behooves us to be doing those things rather than waiting around for Jesus to come again.

Jesus defeated satan at the cross.  He left the work of enforcing what he did to believers … through faith, the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, the power of God, and the promises of God.  We have a job to do.  And actually, we, by doing our jobs, will hasten the Second Coming of Christ.  If Jesus is not here when we think he should be here, it is maybe because, as the proverb goes, “the ball is on our court” and we should be on the court playing rather than waiting for Jesus to do our job.

II Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

 

Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

 

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

 

Job 34:11 For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

How come?

It occurred to me today that I should make mention of why I don’t write on certain topics, or perhaps only rarely.

It is because, in my opinion, the biggest challenge to humanity is in overcoming the corruption in high places.  When you see the tools that operate in high places against humanity, then the focus becomes laying the ax to the root.  I personally think it will take an international tribunal of the most righteous leaders in the most righteous nations to lead that.  And that will be the venue of those who most closely follow God’s original design for nations, which is a “non-woke” design and agenda.

Currently, that does not include the United States, at least of the time of this writing.  When the United States was born, it did seek to honor God and his ways, and it prospered.  But it backslid and became apostate and we are where we are today.

The struggles that widows and children have need to be cut off at the root which is in high places in corrupt government and NGOs and people in the shadows.

Yes, we understand that there are evil spirits behind evil leaders.  But it has to be a two-pronged attack.  You don’t deal with the evil spirits and then not deal with the house that invited them in.

Matthew 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

 

Actions become doors to spirits and invite them in.  That is true of individuals.  It is also true of nations.

In a nation, laws that legalize activities contrary to God law’s, such as abortion, or “legalizing” marriage contrary to one man and one woman (as the Lord God set up his definition of marriage in Genesis 1:27-28), those laws in direct opposition and defiance of the Lord  invite evil spirits in to rule a nation. It should be pretty simple to see why the United States has problems due to laws that are enacted.

You may not believe what I just wrote, but there who those who are satanists and those who understand this stuff and who study the Bible to use it in an inverted way as a way to war against the Lord.  The mouthpieces who speak for these people will diss this kind of information as unimportant in the mainstream fake media, but they know exactly what they are doing. If you don’t oppose them, then you give them permission.  In a book, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, there is this quote. “Those who will not use their brains are no better off than those who have no brains, and so this mindless school of jelly-fish, father, mother, son, and daughter, become useful beasts of burden or trainers of the same.”

A ignorant or complacent society, that doesn’t want to learn these things is no match for dedicated satanists and atheists.

More than once I have said I did a lot of calling for the 2020 election (I no longer do that since the Republicans failed to contest the results of an obviously stolen election and went along to get along). However, I did learn something in that effort. People would ask, “Who is more popular?” I’d say, “Trump.” But I added the caveat that the ones I talked to who were anti-Trump were a lot more zealous.  Those who want to destroy society are a lot more aggressive.

It doesn’t matter how they take you out of the game, as long as you sit on the sidelines.  Some people are complacent about voting and politics due to their view of prophecy.  Until Jesus returns, he said, “Occupy till I come.”  We don’t have the leisure to be complacent.

Will AI Self-Destruct?

https://www.axios.com/2024/05/17/google-openai-ai-generative-publishers

Acts 12:21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.

22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.

23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

 

II Kings 19:35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

36 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

37 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

 

To you prophecy buffs, certainly there can be more than one application of this scripture, but this mirrors the operation of AIs.

II Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

This is what an AI does. It leads a person down the search pathway deeper and deeper into what they are looking at until they end up in an echo chamber thinking the only information about a topic is what they have been led to.  Their world becomes a mirror chamber.

Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

 

The best strategy against AIs is linking. We are told that SEO (search engine optimization) is important, that keywords are important. But Google can manipulate keyword searches.

It used to be easier to research a topic. Now, real information does not come up easily. As a tip, if you find something of importance, save the site, save the link, whatever system you use to do that, because it may not come up again in a similar search.

Linking, sharing on social media, all these things helps put real information out before people, instead of AI information.

Jude 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

A Question, Some Thoughts

This is in the news today.  The threat was “flip” or “we indict your wife”.

If you keep up with these things, this strong-armed tactic is not an isolated incident.  Various means are used to control politicians and others.

So the question is, in relation to all these Cessationist type of meetings, videos, etc., is there similar pressure being put on those who say such things?  Is there similar pressure being brought on ministers in various ways?

From the Bible, we know that praying in the spirit is an effective way to pray when one does not know how to pray.  Certainly there are things in this nation that would come under a “don’t know how to pray” heading.  Or, at least, once one finishes prayer in English, that person can move onto praying in the Spirit.

And who would not want that to happen?  And why?

This is a question for the “brethren” since many of the speakers are male.  Men need to deal with men.

The hard questions need to be asked by somebody.  Why is the church opposing one of the gifts of the Spirit that could liberally used on behalf of the nation?

If, instead of being dissed through a conference, a movie, a YouTube video, etc., instead of negating a gift the Lord has given the church, instead of negating that,  what if it were liberally taught on, and encourged, not only for personal prayer,  but on behalf of the nation?

There has been infilitration in the church.  One easy historical way to see that is to look at Harvard.  Harvard started with a Christian foundation.  Look at it now.

So how exactly is pressure being brought to bear on pastors and religious leaders?  Can they even talk to one another about it?  Whom can they trust?

How is Cessationist movement connected to any infiltration or blackmail or threats?  Do pastors and leaders know whom they can trust?

I searched and could not find a link because Google does not let these kinds of things float to the top in searches, and I did not save the link when I saw it, but one current method of blackmail is to put child porn on a phone as a leverage against a person.  So what about ministers?  What is actually happening?

What about others?

Why the chill in standing against obvious corruption?  Why the push for cessationism?

Problems will not be solved without asking the hard questions.

I Corinthians 16:13 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

Perhaps men need to retreat to their “man caves” and figure this out with each other, or at least find out whom they can trust.

I personally don’t think the cessationist movement is simply because some people can’t read what is written in plain English in the Bible. The baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit were in operation in book of Acts and have continued to be in operation since the book of Acts. There are way too many examples throughout history for this to even be a question.

When something doesn’t pass the test of common sense, the question has to be asked … Why?
