I want to share a testimony of God’s sovereignty. After all, He was the one who miraculously opened the door for me to have my job as a chaplain, and only He could shut that door. I had been out of work for 3 years for various reasons (illness, injury, many closed doors) when I became a volunteer at a certain facility. After being a volunteer for less than 3 months, someone approached me about being the assistant chaplain. Then, before I had even filled out an application, before that job was ever posted, before I was even interviewed, I was hired!!! It was indeed MIRACULOUS!!!! I want you all to know this. God opened the door! And doors that God opens, no one can shut. Even so, God powerfully kept me in the position of assistant and then promoted me to lead chaplain and blessed me with a godly co-worker/assistant.
Over the past 2 months, I have felt a great urgency in my spirit, and I worked with every fiber of my being. Somehow, I knew my time was short at the facility. I did not know why or how or when, but I just knew. And though my choice was recently taken from me (as I was told to do something contrary to my conscience “or else” there is the door), I want you all to know that God is sovereign in this. He is in control. The One who brought me there and opened that unseen door for me, is also the One who has closed that door at this time.
But, God is doing awesome things!! God is moving around this world, specifically in third world nations. Over the last 3 months and in spite of all the negativity in America’s newsrooms, I have been encouraged through international videos on youtube of the faith and repentance and incredible demonstrations of overflowing love for God in our Christian brothers and sisters worldwide. I am including links below of this move of God throughout the world. From thousands kneeling in a Peruvian town square, to thousands of prisoners in Guatemala crying out to God in repentance, to people kneeling with arms raised on block after city block in Brazil, to people’s singing resounding through apartment complexes over night in Brazil, to policemen turning into street preachers in India, to the military turned preachers and singers in the Dominican Republic, to the Prime Minister of Jamaica publicly praying in repentance along with his people, people in Venezuela kneeling in a city park, little children of Mozambique crying out with loud voices as they pray over a map of the world, to people kneeling along block after block in Kenya, to Christians holding services on rooftops and balconies in Pakistan — God has been moving in revival around the world!!! (Links are found in “Days of Preparation: Repent Like Daniel,” article, https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/04/22/days-of-preparation-repent-like-daniel/)
But, America and Europe have been silent. Lulled by complacency and comfort, they yawned and thought “this too shall pass.” But, it has not, and will not. First COVID 19, there was talk of the economy imploding, then the churches remaining as closed and silent as the grave, there has been talk of our food sources under attack (the killing of cows and pigs for no reason, the purposeful destruction of crops, etc.), and now the riots from sea to shining sea and worldwide is finally waking up the Church of the west. First the Churches of California and Minnesota stepped up to the plate and reopened on Pentecost Sunday, May 31st, and some even before that in Illinois and Texas and Maryland. I also know of one in Florida, one in Tulsa, Oklahoma that I used to attend, and there are more than likely others that I do not know about.
Recently, the church leading the charge in all this, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills headed by Pastor Jack Hibbs, had an incredible prayer meeting wherein he read from Deuteronomy 28 and stated the stark truth that America is a “cursed” nation because of our disobedience, then knelt with his entire congregation in repentant prayer like Daniel in Daniel 9. Furthermore, in Atlanta, Georgia, Christians of all races prayed in public, knelt in public, worshiped in public. Indeed, revival has begun.
Along with the links below, there have been some incredible articles written on my website regarding this move of God, what God is doing, and where we are in history. There have also been some eye opening articles/videos posted at Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s website (he is the nephew of President John F. Kennedy) https://childrenshealthdefense.org/. And another great site that has video after video of what God is doing in Israel is evangelist Zev Porat’s Messiah of Israel Ministries: https://www.messiahofisraelministries.org/ He is also on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/salvation7771 Please, vigilantly check these out and take the time to read/listen so that you can be aware of what is really happening.
We are in the last of the Last Days. The Bible is clear. The signs are everywhere. We are living in exciting and prophetic times! Jesus is coming back soon!! The Great Tribulation is just around the corner. I encourage you all to be in the Word. To know what God has said. To be aware. To be alert. To be vigilant for the days are evil, the darkness is growing, the beast system is rising, the time is at hand. In God’s great mercy He has given Christians this time of isolation to seek Him and get back into His Word (I pray we’ve not busied ourselves with distractions instead!); He has used this time of quarantine to awaken us, this time of questioning to lead us to the truth of His soon return, this time of fear to lead those who do not know Him to believe and be saved. Jesus is coming SOON! Let’s be ready!
