Thank You God That It Was Just a Dream

I had a dream that I was in prison, it was like hell. I some how knew that while I was in this prison I would not be just serving a life sentence, but this was going to be eternal. As I was being taken away I was overwhelmed by the feeling that I was going to prison unjustly. I felt as though the punishment was totally undeserved, I didn’t deserve to go here. It was pure terror to realize that I was going to spend an eternity in this environment, “I don’t deserve this, this isn’t fair.” What a relief it was to wake up and realize that I can still worship God to realize that I am not in prison, but that I have been given the free gift of Life Eternal. For me it was ok, it was just a really bad dream, however for a multitude of uninformed and spiritually blind people it will one day be a reality. The end will come and they will be carried off to eternal damnation and all of them will be screaming, “I DON’T DESERVE THIS”, “THIS IS NOT FAIR, NO ONE EVER TOLD ME THIS WOULD HAPPEN!”, “I AM NOT GUILTY”. These will not be as fortunate as I was this morning to wake up and realize that it was just a dream. These will not be like me and once again praise their God and feel his closeness. They will not know joy any longer only sorrow, they will not know peace anymore only torment. PEOPLE IF YOU ARE READING THIS IT IS NOT TOO LATE! “REPENT!” “TURN AWAY FROM SIN!”. There is still time, grace is still being poured out like rain, favor, power is available to us from on high. The language of the gospel is “whosoever will” come and bow down before our glorious King. He or she who will put the name of Jesus on their lips as Lord can be saved! The pleasures of sin last for only a season, but the pleasure of knowing God last unto eternity! The life that is inside of me is better then any high, any drug any pleasure of this world, to get it I had to give up everything! But it was worth it!

Paul Washer – Jesus Died

Here is a media presentation using one of Paul Washer’s messages. Paul Washer is really making waves in modern day Christianity and for good reason. Currently, he is one of my favorite preachers. I do not necessarily agree with him 100% in everything, but I can definitely say that he has got the gospel message down to perfection:

ATTENTION ALL SERIOUS CHRISTIANS:

Please check out Paul Washer’s message titled “10 Indictments”, it is a very serious message and is crucial for the hour that we are living in.

Voice of Revolution Online Magazine

I am recommending this online resource. It is called Voice of Revolution. I know it sounds just like the name of my blog, however the editor Marcus French came up with the name of this site at the exact same time that I came up with the name of my blog. We discovered each others site and learned that we had both at almost the exact same time frame, named our sites with almost identical names. I have the word “the” before revolution. Needless to say that it is not just a common name that we share it is also a common heart and that is to see restoration in the body of Christ and “righteous” revolution manifest upon the earth:

Quote of the Day: Leonard Ravenhill

“The Church began in the Spirit; now She is operating in the flesh. There is no pillar of fire over the sanctuary. There are no preachers who can hold the hell-bound spell-bound. I am not sure that it can be proved that Nero fiddled while Rome burned. It can be proved that the Church is fiddling while the world is burning! The one reason that we do not have revival today is that we are content to live without it.” -Leonard Ravenhill

To Meet God in Fire – Part 1 “Wash Your Garments”(from June 23rd, 2008)

In the wilderness Moses, God’s prophet, led the children of Israel to Mt. Sinai. He told the people to consecrate themselves because on the third day they would meet with God on the Holy Mountain. The very word consecration means to make or declare holy or sacred. It is true that no man can make himself holy in the sight of God apart from the perfect sacrifice, Jesus Christ. Even in the light of this “truth” the act of consecration has not ended with the Old Testament. Take notice of what the Scripture says in Exodus chapter 19:

Exodus 19:10-11 (NASB)

10 The LORD also said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments;
11 and let them be ready for the third day, for on the third day the LORD will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.

The words of God “let them wash their garments” gives us more insight into the act of repentance, than anything found in the New Testament. It paints a clear picture and gives us clear instructions of how to come to God. To understand the washing of the garments, we must have a correct concept of what holiness actually is:

“Holiness is to the spirit, what health is to the body”

Being healthy in your body is two-fold. First if you are healthy than your body is absent of all disease and sickness. That alone does not make you healthy because you can be free of these things that damage and destroy your body yet have a diet that consist of junk food. You would be lacking all of the vital nutrients, vitamins and sustenance that your body needs. The second part of being healthy is being filled with good nutrition. It is being absent of that which is bad, but being filled with that which is good. Therefore holiness is no different it is being emptied of all that is evil, but also being filled with all that is good. That is why God is the true Holy Father because He alone is filled with all that is good and there is no evil present within Him. Perhaps this is why when Isaiah came into His presence he said, “Woe is me for I am a man of unclean lips and I live among an unclean people.” In that presence of the Holy, sin and all uncleanness is exposed.

It is true that there are no works that we can do to purchase our own salvation; Christ has purchased it for us. However, if we are to become holy there is a consecration, a washing of the garments a repentance that must come first. We must empty our vessels of all known sin, all uncleanness and impurity and nail it to the cross. (Notice I said all “known” sin. Under Old Testament law willful sin was not covered, only sins committed in ignorance.) That’s our part, then God’s part is to fill us with Himself, to fill us with all that is good, the power to live the life and be holy. Many people love to quote out of Isaiah, “Come let us reason together…though your sin are as scarlet, they will be white as snow, though they are red like crimson, they will be white like wool.” How many people have taken the time to study the context of those words by reading a few verses before:

Isaiah 1:16-17 (NASB)

16 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil,
17 Learn to do good; Seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow.

I AM PREPOSING TODAY A REVOLUTION IN THE SUPERFICIAL & FALSE WAY THAT WE PRESENT THE GOSPEL. The false “come as you are” message must be exposed if we are to be effective at reaching the lost. We have a church of full of false converts who “have a name that they are alive, but they are dead” because they did not come in the way of the cross, they did not wash their garments and they have not been made holy. The fruit of this is that we have a church in America lacking true holiness. Everyone wants a “Resurrection Experience”, however what many fail to realize is that there can be no “Resurrection” without a “Crucifixion”. We must first die!

James 4:7-10 (NASB)

7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
9 Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom.
10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
