Many people are asking me if I see destruction and judgment for America this year. After all, this is a Shemitah year (every seventh year). Also, this month is the final Blood Moon in a series of four that have appeared on Feast Days! History has proven bad things happen to ungodly nations based on these patterns. And let’s face it, we are morally bankrupt as a nation!
So does that mean we should be fearful?
No! Fear tolerated is faith contaminated!
Feast Days and End-Time Prophecy
We are in the midst of what is known as the High Holiday Season in Judaism (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles). Synagogues throughout the world are packed. Jews who never attend services all year flood the synagogues during these Feasts.
My father taught me it was essential to go to the synagogue and hear the shofar blown in order to have a good year. We fasted and prayed to make sure our name was inscribed for another year in the Book of Life. Yet no one tells us what God has revealed in His Holy Scriptures:
Without the shedding of blood there is neither release from sin and its guilt nor the remission of the due and merited punishment for sins (Hebrews 9:22 AMP).
Feast Days teach me about end-time Bible prophecy. They also remind me to remove all sin from my life so there is no place for the devil. The Feast Days fortify my faith. I believe special portals to and from heaven are opened on Feast Days. After all, these are days that God has set aside as “appointments” with Him.
A Clear Distinction
At the time of the original Passover when the plagues came on the Egyptians, God said in Exodus 8:23 (NLT), I will make a clear DISTINCTION between my people and your people. The judgments did not touch us. In fact we prospered in the midst of calamity. Although thick darkness covered our enemies, we were surrounded by light (Exodus 10:21-23).
Could this be true with the Shemitah and Blood Moon judgments? While the earth is enveloped in darkness, fear and panic, God’s KNOWLEDGEABLE people will be surrounded with the light, wisdom and peace of God!
My faith assures me that nothing can take me out before God’s time. That includes financial collapse, pestilence and shaking! In fact I believe if it is not my time, I am invincible as long as I am living a holy life and have a purpose that I have not fully accomplished for God! In Psalm 91, He promises me not only a long life, but also a satisfying life!
The same goes for you! And this is why…
For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us (2 Corinthians 1:20).
I know there will be judgments and problems coming to America, but there will be a clear distinction for those who understand the power of God.
I’m a “Prepper”
You see, I am a “prepper”! I believe in preparing for trouble. By that I do not mean storage of food, water and shotguns. (If God tells you to do this, then be obedient.) But the prepping I am speaking about is like the five wise virgins in Jesus’ parable in Matthew 25. I want to be so close to God that at the midnight hour “my cup runneth over” with fresh oil! My prepping consists of praying in tongues at least one hour per day, reading the Bible daily and being a worshipper of God.
The Greatest Awakening in History
Frankly, my eyes are not on destruction, but on the greatest awakening in history. My eyes are focused on John 14:12, where Jesus promised, He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do. My eyes are on the greater works such as creative miracles. My eyes are on millions of people being swept into the kingdom! We were created to proclaim the Good News. This is why we live!
Why should we be fearful on earth when God chose us to be alive for the greatest move of His Spirit in history? He knew we could handle anything the devil throws at us and be more than conquerors.
My heart’s desire is to mentor you to do more than I or any of my guests can do. I believe many of you will have greater ministries than any generation in history.
- We are positioned as a ministry to equip millions of Christians to be “normal”—as defined by the Bible.
- We are positioned to reach hundreds of thousands of Jews and Arabs with the Gospel.
- We are positioned to evangelize millions of people worldwide.
Our vision is BIG—but so is our God!
Portal of Blessing
Each year at the Feasts, God instructed the Jewish people to bring a gift to Him with these words:
All must give as they are able, according to the blessings given to them by the LORD your God (Deuteronomy 16:16-17 NLT).
Would you consider sowing a special Yom Kippur Offering at this set time to favor Zion?
As I mentioned earlier, I firmly believe there is a portal of blessing opened on the Feasts. A similar portal opens when we bless the Jewish people.
We Jewish people say on the Feasts, “May your name be inscribed in the Book of Life.” But God says because of our strategic partnership, untold multitudes will have their name inscribed in the Lamb’s Book of Life!
Thank you for being a part of our family with a Jewish heart!
