Geese, Sheep, and Senate Inquiries

Is it just me, or do these posts seem to be getting longer? As long as at least one person is reading them, I will continue to write them.
This morning I was reading a passage in Job, that reminded me of something I saw yesterday.
Job 12:7-8, "But now ask the beasts and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will explain to you."
Yesterday morning, as I was taking out a bag of trash that had sat unattended over the weekend I notice a V shaped shadow on the pavement, and lifted my eyes just in time to see a flock of geese flying overhead.
They were bidding old Wisconsin farewell, and beginning their journey south, to warmer climates. I stood there watching until they were well out of sight, their departure making me sad, as I realized the warm weather was about to end. I started thinking about their graceful flight, how when the lead goose gets tired they rotate, and another takes his place, how they feel for one another in that when one goose falls out of formation, two others follow, and wait for that one until he returns to the flock, or they realize he is no longer able to continue the journey, then my thoughts went deeper still.
If geese, who are simple creations in comparison to mankind can feel when it's time to leave, if geese can sense through that inborn barometer with which they have been endowed that delaying their departure will mean certain death, why can't most Christians today discern that the darkness is approaching, that turbulent times are ahead, and that they must find shelter, and refuge in God before it is too late? Yes, sometimes even geese can teach us lessons on discerning the times and the seasons, and that in order to withstand the days ahead, we must prepare.
I figured the only way a goose would keep from leaving when he sensed he must, is if they were somehow trapped, or incapable of flight.
If the Christian today is weighed down by sin, trapped by the very trappings he thought would bring him freedom, then even though a small part of him might be crying out, he is unable to flee to safety, spiritually speaking, because he is unwilling to let go of the things that are holding him back. The things of this world have such a strong hold on some, that they override both sense and sensibility, and cloud the primary imperative stamped onto every human soul, that of knowing God. The temporary respite some find, in possessions or vices is just that, temporary, and the soul once more begins to cry out, 'leave this world behind, leave it now, and don't look back for only death can be found here.'
For some that inner voice is so troubling, that they spend an entire lifetime trying to find ways to disable it, or get rid of it altogether, rather than heeding the warning, and discovering repentance. Others go looking for answers, only to find a long line of now multi millionaires with their hand out, saying, 'we know the answers to your burning questions, but first you have to pay an admission fee.'
I realize the segue into the second part of this post was as graceful as a giant boulder rolling down a hill, but hopefully by the end of this post it will all come together quite nicely.
Apparently the 'god business' is under attack by the US Senate. I realize that some of you are already going, 'yep, they're starting to persecute the church', but the fact of the matter is, they are starting to persecute those who have for years now, made merchandise of God's house and God's Word, those who have mercilessly fleeced the sheep until there was no wool to be had, then went about butchering them for the lamb chops. Will this lead to a widespread and general persecution of Christendom? I believe the times are as such, that yes, eventually it will.
For now however, enough dissatisfied customers of the prosperity heresy have written letters to their congressmen and senators, that an official inquiry and investigation into the finances of six of the top ministries in the United States has been launched.
That's what happens when you make God a business, and you fill people's heads with unrealistic expectations of palatial estates, yachts, and Rolex watches, when you twist scripture to such an extent that it is no longer recognizable as scripture, simply to feed your own greed.
Is this persecution? No, not yet. It is the consequence of deception, the reckoning that is long overdue.
If I know the wolves, and I've been in ministry long enough to believe I do, soon you will see them portray themselves as martyrs for the cause of Christ, and those who are suffering persecution at the hands of evildoers. To believe that these people are being persecuted, or that they are martyrs, would be a great disservice to those who are truly being persecuted, and martyred.
God is not mocked, and sometimes He can even use something as corrupt as the United States Senate to bring judgment on those who profess Him with their lips, but reject Him in their hearts.
As the cold descends, some sheep seem to be waking up, realizing they've been left without wool. My hope and prayer is that some would be wise enough to come in from the cold, to bow at the foot of the cross, to leave behind the foolishness they have believed for so long, and embrace Christ, in simplicity, humility, and obedience.

With love in Christ,

Michael Boldea Jr.

This very thing was played out in my life until a few years ago. I was addicted to idolatry in the form of violent video games, off color television, off color movies, perverse speech, pornography, secret cross dressing, lying, stealing, ect.

I had been baptized in the spirit, experiencing many spiritual gifts, ten years before, but had gone off kilter. I was leading worship in my church, and yet a secret messy disaster. When I came to the end of myself on March 18, 2005, I found full repentance and Jesus Christ released me of all bondage.

I had known the warnings about what is coming, for that whole time, since I was young, and went off course for a time. Repent now while you still can.

This comes not a moment to soon. I have personally known of people who have charged a thousand dollars they didnt have, to send to these charletons. Then they were dismayed when their promised thousand fold return didn't manifest itself. I might add these were not un-intelligent people, but with little Godly discernment unforturnately, and a possible underlying love for mamon.

Dude, if the ministers of Satan dressed as happy Christians are going to pull the persecution ploy, we are seriously headed for trouble.

The masses are going to believe them and support them regardless of the evidence of their sin publicly set up against them.

The few with discernment will wonder at the real martyrs and hopefully get their grips and flee these synagogues of Satan.

It is quite possible that many have lost their time to repent and will now be sent this delusion by God himself.

God never fails...Even when He sends strong delusions.

People have been using god's temple for their own greedy gain since before Jesus threw the moneychangers out of the temple. He is just as angry about it today as he was then

Michael ,
As long as the Lord gives you everflowing springs of water to divert to us ,keeep on for the well's are running dry and who knows how long this internet will last ?

I was invited to join a jewish views group about two weeks ago,and the miracle is that I'm still there.
I know I'm like a bull in a China shop most of the time.
I guess I need more patience ,but when they started writing about 'do plants,trees and mountains have souls' ,that did it for me.
The blood atonement was a hard one for them to handle as they have forgotten what God said to them in Leviticus.
In writing about how God tested Abraham's with Issac, God told Him the exact spot where he was to sacrifice his son around Mt.Moriah.
I came to the conclusion this is exactly where Jesus was crucified. As God said He would provide a lamb ,not a Ram.
What do you think ?

Well Steve, the one who invited me to join today asked me if I considered it a sin to vote,as I have been encouraging Israel and him to trust in the Lord alone.
He knows Jesus is my Messiah and I don't hide it.
I wrote this back to him.

> I've become very cynical of the entire political process the last
few years. Just curious, are you a registered voter? You know,
Jehovahs Witnessess do not vote and they do not register to vote.
They believe all earthly governments are evil and satanic. Do you
believe it is evil to vote?
Steve Klein
Steve ,is this important ?

It so happens earlier today as I was putting my new progressive
insurance card in my wallet that a worthless piece of folded paper
fell out.
I picked it up and placed it back where it had fallen from.
Now ,after your ? I looked at it closer.
Levy County, Fannin Springs is my precint although in 8 years I've
never been there once.
For Party there is an 'N' below which I think means NONE.

I've got five acres here and pay a total of $161.00 for taxes in
2007 ,have no property or home insurance and had no structural damage from 2 hurricanes to my Mobile Home although it is parked under very large Oak trees.
I lost a large oak some yards east of my M.H.
I'm still driving the same 94' Nissan truck I purchased in 95' with only outside maintenance of a replaced timing belt three years ago.
The brakes I haven't replaced since I stopped working for the USPS in 2001.
I live about three miles from most of my shopping and don't use much
I went to the Veterans Hospital in Lake City in 2003 after picking up
a 'free' puppy in Dixie county and was misdiagnosed by a foreign
doctor from India who said I was allergic to detergents after I told
him of the puppy.He shot me up full of steriods when all I needed was Lindane a topical solution for scabees.
(which I leared after)
I was graciously enrolled in the Veterans service where they
misdiagnosed me again and sent me free a very large bottle of Lipitor
which I threw away.
After this I cut up my VA card and burned it in a large fire and have
not been needed doctor or hospital except for a wound on my index
finger which needed antibiotics.

So why would I want to vote and risk the goodness and blessing of
trusting in God ?

I know where my blessing come from and who to thank and don't want to
follow the herd off the cliff.
The Lord is my source for all things which pertain to life .'If we can't trust Him with the little things ,How can we trust Him with the big stuff ?

Steve hasn't responded to this ?

Praise God. Thanks for the testimony Sam.

It's always the two edge sword. The vicious invading army that won't break rank is the army of God, bringing long deserved judgement. (Egypt, Babylon & Assyrian) We call for justice from the Fed on the wicked wolves because we are offended, contrary to the teaching to suffer loss or pull up the weeds. We look upon judgement and say, judge not lest you be judged, thereby lack of wisdom,faith and confidense we left undone a weightier matter. We empower the wolves by feeding them because we lust after the riches they promise. We fall in the pit because we were enticed by words that tickled our ears. The sons of Balim are everywhere, and those who cannot tell good from evil want to be just like them.

We are truly living in historical times, ancient historical times. Those crazy, goody goody two shoes Christians, are building a wall against all the wicked. They have a problem with wolves, the liberals, the ungodly, the abuser of mankind, other gods, other ways to heaven, they just can't get along with anyone that doesn't think like them, they are all walled off, just a seperated little group. The only thing is, from the inside of the wall it looks like a ship that will float in a big storm. Yup, truly historical times. The thing is it's going to get much, much worse.

So Captain Michael when does the storm hit? Because those on the other side of the "wall" don't even have a clue. But nothing happens in all the earth that God's friends and servant's the prophets don't know about, and prepare for.

Prepare - yes indeed! There is only one safe place, and that is in Him.

It's encouraging to find like minded folk out on the net, as opposed to much of what passes for a prophetic word.



PS Wisconsin? We're just sending you stuff from Alberta, where it is already Winter ;-) Mind, you get it cold, cold cold there all Winter, we get the Chinooks. Totally off-post aside now ended.

to be fair -some of these ministries did start out above board but grew into something not even their dreams would declare. when you get into multi-million dollar budgets and have hundreds counting on you to make payroll how stressful it becomes, and it is easy to trade faith for gimmicks.

how many of us would be as saul and offer the sacrifice before samuel arrived? don't get me wrong here-i am not condoning these charaltans and their antics, but when it comes to crunch time my faith has failed in the past and i too have taken the lesser road.

Sorry have to say it, these ministeries were not built on "The Rock" these ministries serve another Jesus, not the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords The All Holy God, they don't even know God, other wise they wouldn't have dared preached the doctrine they have preached for years, leading people away from "The Truth". These are such that have recieved not the love of the Truth, and therefore God has turned them over to believe a lie and be damned.

Ready to Begin

Micheal, Your Grandfather gave us the warning by the Spirit of God, and God in his Great Mercy gave us an amazing amount of time to heed the warning, I believe this is now coming to pass, this is it.

Ready to Begin

November 21, 1994. "Awaken, my people," says the voice of the Lord. "Be passive no longer. Draw closer today more than ever, for the day of my vengeance is ready to begin." "I will shake the earth from its foundation (earthquakes?), and I will require punishment of all those that say they do my will, yet through what they do, they blaspheme my name. I will punish prophets, preachers, singers, and all those that do a work yet do it for their own glory. I will judge and punish the entire world. Only those that today sit at my feet in meekness, weeping, and worshiping me, asking for my help, will rejoice in the protection of the arm of the Lord on that day.

"Forsake every evil thought, all the empty words, all covetousness, pride, and hypocrisy, because in whatever you are doing, it is not you doing it, but I, the Lord. Where are my clean gifts that I have poured among you: speaking in tongues, prophecy, and other gifts that were given unto you? Where is my power?" says the Lord.

"Change your hearts, my people, today, for the days are numbered until I will begin to avenge. My eye sees in the light as well as in the darkness, my people. There is no where you can hide from the eye of God. Liars, imposters, those that are covetous, and all those that have only a form of Godliness, but deny the power of God, I will judge them, and then I will judge the whole world. I will shake it from its foundations. In many places there will be massacres. Those that today worship me with faithfulness will be the only ones protected on that day. The horn is ready to sound for the start of the battle. The days are numbered until you will hear the sound, when the armies of heaven will begin the battle against the inhabitants of earth. No army in the world will be able to stand against the armies of heaven, and the army of hell will not be able to raise its head against the Lord's army. Yet those that worshiped me in spirit and in truth I will protect, for I am God. Everything you see around you will be no more. Everything will be destroyed and burn in fire. Do not be passive. Draw close to me, for I come to avenge and fulfill all that was said in the past," says the Lord.

The Lord spoke this to me in 4-6-04, I think I should share it with others as it fits with what Michael just shared.

"Hearken unto the hour and obey each thing i say to you. You must stand confidently on the foundation of Christ Jesus only! It will be the only foundation standing after devastation comes. It is I who will destroy all others.
There are false foundations built up by mere men. They say these foundations are of Me, but when My devastating power shall be made manifest, these shanties and sheds will be brought down to dust. To men they may look like mansions & multi million-dollar estates but they are really only pitiful shacks, uninhabitable by the Holy Spirit. Remain on My foundation. I shall provide the materials to build. And what you build, if overseen by Me, shall stand and be a mighty fortress impregnable to the enemy. I shall not destroy My
own foundation. Do you remember My word?-a kingdom cannot be divided against itself- I shall pull down those things not of My kingdom and shall see to it that My holy habitations be established. Do not lose heart, things must get much harder. But with Me your work will be easy. Do not listen to the chattering around you, the murmerers & complainers. Remember Who has commissioned you. Who has sent you out amongst the nations. Do as you are told & My kingdom shall prevail. I AM! My arm is not shortened that it cannot save. Let peace come upon you. Walk only in My truth, speaking My word in love. I shall exude boldness & confidence unto all who seek to sup with me. They must come to me unhindered, un -distracted & wait.--Wait for Me to give the orders. Do not look to man, but only your Father in heaven He shall direct your paths.
