A SOBER WARNING TO AMERICA AND THE NATIONS

LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE!

I woke and told Pam, “I feel the water coming to a boil.” Later I saw a news article titled, “Protests erupting across college campuses reach boiling point.” Several commentators have said, “This looks like Germany in the early 30’s.”

Pam and I have felt an escalated warning and urgency for America. It has been echoed by a 911 word from Cindy Jacobs regarding Islamist terror attacks in the US. Her word is affirmed by a circle of credible prophetic voices.

The FBI last month warned, “It’s not if, but when.” I feel “when” is upon us. 

I urge you to read or listen to Cindy’s warning below, take the matter to heart, and share it with people who matter to you.  What do you think? What are you doing?

No one wants to be an alarmist. We care about what people think of us. No one wants to be thought of as the boy who called wolf. But worse than being an alarmist, and what people think of us, is failing to sound an alarm which could avert or ameliorate great pain. 

I am not Chicken Little, and the sky is not falling, but heaven and earth are about to have a good shaking. I believe our God has staggering, glorious things to reveal in the shaking. He is revealing His glory in manifold ways in the shaking. You have a part in them. It is wisdom to know the times and what should be done.

I believe, “The best is yet to come.” I believe the nations will be filled with the glory of God and we will see our Savior face to face!

My basic view of the future is “darkness overcome by prevailing light!” I get this from Isaiah 60; “For look, darkness will cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: But the Lord will shine over you, and his glory will appear over you.”

A great “baby” is about to be born in answer to our prayers – THE KINGDOM OF GOD! I also believe the baby comes with birth pains. 

Pam has coached women in childbirth. She encourages them with, “This is exciting! A baby is coming!” The focus is on the prize. She does this when women are in discomfort, great pain, and sometime doubting they can make it. The baby is the big thing. Pain is the process. It is not a small thing, but it is passing, and soon forgotten.

Our Lord said in John 16:21, “A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembers the anguish no more, for the joy that a child is born into the world.” 

Paul said something similar in Romans 8; I do not count the sufferings of this present age worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed in us.”

What if a midwife never informs a new mother there will be pain and difficulty? What if she never coaches the mother how to steel herself, prepare herself and make it through the contractions and intense transitions? These are things not to be glossed.

Cindy’s Jacobs prophecy is of the threat of radial Islam on the US, Canada and other nations. Her prescription is prayer, fasting and repentance so we may gain God’s mercy and protection.

Read or listen to what she says below and let me hear your response.

Word of the Lord for the Nations

Received on a plane to Calgary, Canada  

4/19/24 by Cindy Jacobs

Do not think that the people who are protesting and calling for a Palestinian State are just protesting on behalf of Palestine. Whether they understand or not, there is an insurrection forming that is like unto the Communist takeover in Russia for the downfall of the Tzars. Only this time, they are aiming for the nations of Canada, the United States, and other nations of the world. Among the other nations, Europe is especially their target.

This is a planned takeover, not only ideologically, but nationally. It has infiltrated our militaries and is gaining strength. At the moment, they are quietly planning. There are proxies on the streets in protest. This is not only about bringing a Palestinian state to the Middle East but an Islamic State to North America and other nations. They are subversive and even use misguided students. However, the movement at large is on a much bigger and more pervasive scale.

This Palestinian State is also part of a larger alliance of Iran as the head, with a Caliphate of Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Hezbollah will be part of this axis of evil, and eventually join with Afghanistan. Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and other Middle Eastern nations cannot be neutral because you will one day be in the crosshairs of a Middle Eastern takeover, and your independence will be threatened. Africa: choose the right side. Do not side against Israel in this battle.

Russia is watching like a devourer to swoop down on Europe through Ukraine. China is being restrained through prayer against gobbling up Taiwan, Korea, and Asia. Even if these alliances work as an axis of evil, Islam will eventually break these alliances and take over. 

The insurrectionists are set in Paris, London, and other European cities, as well as in Australia, and Latin America.

However, the Hand of God is waiting to cover those nations who are on their face in repentance and holiness.

Judgment has begun at the House of God and will increase, and there may appear to be a severity in the cleansing of the church. There will be no wiggle room for those who think that no one sees. This judgment is to clean the house in order to give the Church the authority in prayer to avert what is coming. 

For the covers are coming off of hidden sin. “Those in the prayer movement are going first because some of them stood in My face,” says the Lord, “and brought uncleanness and mixture before the throne. This will not be tolerated. It is time to confess, before you are exposed and cry out to Me to help as you navigate through the consequences.

“For those who truly love Me more than hiding your sin, I will help you, even though it will be difficult. You can choose to go the hard way, or the way of holiness and repentance.

“For I am jealous for my revival and the raising up reformers for your nations. The hearts of many of those who are in this new move of God must not be crushed and darkened by the sin of the church.

“I am the refiner’s fire,” says the Lord. “I am holiness personified. Cry out to be holy and washed clean.

“Holiness belongs to me,” says the Lord. “I will not tolerate mixture. Even though it seems like I haven’t seen the sin of some in the church, I know all things, and I am going to reveal a side of me that many have not seen in their lifetime.

“If the church repents, I will relent. I will protect your nations. If the church repents, I will deal with the coming world consequences and give wisdom to the leaders of your nations. For foolish governance is a consequence of sin. If the people elect those who snub their noses at biblical principles, their leaders will be like blind people and cause grave mistakes to be made.

“Turn to me, Church,” says the Lord, “for I desire mercy and not judgment. Turn to me with fasting and prayer, and turn from your wicked ways. I am waiting,” says the Lord, “to hear your cries and heal your land.”

UPPER ATMOSPHERE TESTIMONIES

We attend a gym in our neighborhood and regularly see the same folks, walking and working out. We go early and there are not many people there, but occasionally we arrive as the walkers, and Pickle ball participants are checking in.

A month ago a woman introduced herself to me and asked if we were  missionaries? The conversation continued and she shared that she was flying soon and was nervous about it.  I asked if I might share how God delivered me from fear of flying. This is a piece of my story.
When we were publicizing the Theresa book we were flying quite a bit. I was leaving my children at home and it did not bode well with me. I was often losing sleep, rest and struggling with fear as we went through airports and flew from the NW across the nation.
At one point God began to deal with me. He let me know there was nothing I could do as I was up in the air, and I should trust that my purpose was greater than the fears. When I let that sink in I found I could fly anywhere, alone or with others with no fear. I was able to enjoy the restriction of flying.
In one incident I experienced the worst turbulence ever. It was during Covid and we were all wearing masks. People were screaming, grabbing the chairs, other people and simply losing their minds in fear. I, on the other hand, experienced complete Peace and Joy, and began singing and laughing. (Thankful for the mask)
When the plane landed and rolled up to our gate, people evacuated the plane, running off  leaving EVERYTHING behind. I was surprised at how little importance their phones, bags and carry-one items were compared to their lives, and we were safely on the ground.
As I shared this with the woman she seemed encouraged. Fast forward to yesterday. Steve came back from the gym and asked me if I remember talking to Donna?
She indicated her flight was the worst she had ever experienced. She felt the plane might break up, but she remembered our conversation, picturing Steve and I, and was at peace.
Then she dropped this:  “The Lord showed me your faces in a dream the day before I met you.” SHE MET US BEFORE SHE MET US.
My heart was thrilled to see how God will encourage and prepare those He loves. So glad He could use me to encourage a new friend to be courageous and trust God.

I hope this encourages you to share your life freely. We never know when it will manifest in a supernatural way.  (If I have to be called a missionary, this is the best way. LOL)

Kindly,
Pamela Johnson

COMPOUNDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT REVIEWS

I highly recommend this book, especially for men who want to up their game as encouragers. The articles are brief, upbeat, tender, and tough. During the past two years, almost weekly, I’ve been in prayer rooms and men’s meetings with Steve Johnson—I’ve never encountered a person anointed as much as he is with the gift of encouragement (Romans 12:8). And with his comprehensive writing, Steve continually captures his reader’s attention with vivid, creative lines. Read this book, one chapter at a time; and if you can, find a way to meet this man!  Geoff Pope

 

I found your book to be very encouraging. It calls us to a higher ground. I heard God speaking through the words he gave you to write. I appreciated having his Word to read throughout the book. I especially enjoyed the lessons on wonder, amazement and creativity. I wrote down a quote to pray for friends and family: “May our friends and family who are distant from Yeshua be hit hard by his overflowing kindness, bringing them to true repentance.”

Also, having a background working with special needs children, I was touched by the pool story about Cain. I had many foster children on my case load as a speech language pathologist. Their stories broke my heart and helped lead us to adopt. Thank you for giving me the privilege of reading your book!!” Liela  Cuglivan

 

One of the names of God in the Greek language of the New Testament Scriptures is “parakleet.” It is often translated “encourager.” It is in the very nature of the Creator of the universe to encourage. Always has been. Steve Johnson has tapped into that part of who God is and has learned well how to live that out in real life. Steve excels in being an encourager. And now, he has given us a tool in his book, Compounds of Encouragement, that enables us to become more like our Father in heaven and learn how to encourage others. Easy to read, and once we begin to live out this message, our lives will never be the same. And people around us will be encouraged. This could start a revolution! A revolution of encouragement! Read this book, apply its message, and become a “parakleet” yourself. An encourager like God Himself.        Greg Wylie 

I have been listening to your new book, compounds of encouragement, for the last hour during my devotion this morning. For me, this demonstrates the very best of Steve Johnson… your amazing capacity to paint truth-telling stories in vivid hues that are eye/heart catching, especially when you read from your own heart. Thank you.
Dr. Harvey R. Brown, Jr., President

In “Wonderment: The Launchpad for Worship” you wrote:”The Scriptures speak of “signs, wonders and miracles.” “Wonder” is always sandwiched between God’s signposts and unique works. I am convinced that as we restore wonder, we will have a vast increase in signs and miracles.” 
It would be a wonderful devotional and source for Bible study or series of teachings. It is very rich. Each section stands strong just in what it says, they are each nuggets we can meditate on and pray into.  Mark Mcconkey

 

Father has made available to you, Steve, Insightful encouragements and areas that expands into the joy of encouragement to enlarge, enlighten & energize all of us. Thank you Father! Let the Kingdom of Heaven treasures pour upon all. Abundantly!!!!  Daniel Odom

RESURRECTION COURAGE

 

“Because I live, you will live also.”  John 14:19

LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE! 

The resurrection of our Lord gives us courage to go the distance!

Knowing His love and resolve to suffer for us gives us the courage to do the same for Him. He suffered great pain, but no lasting injury. Death was trounced by our victorious Lord!

The resurrection is the Christian’s triumph and store of courage. Because of Him we can go face to face and nose to nose with death. We declare, “ If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”  Rom 8:11

We serve THE LIVING GOD!

Nebuchadnezzar acknowledged, “He is the living God, enduring forever; his kingdom shall never be destroyed, and his dominion shall be to the end.”  Daniel 6:26

Jeremiah proclaimed, “But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation.” Jeremiah 10:10

Imitation gods are useless. Only the Living God can impart life, and the wisdom and power to live it!

Simon Peter by revelation confessed, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  Matthew 16:16

Psalm 56:9 adds the comfort of knowing this Living God is our Advocate standing for our best! “One thing I know. God is for me!” So we have a Living God who is pulling for us. He is in favor of our welfare and positively working for us, and in us.

What a promise our redeemer grants us! “Because I live, You will live also!” When death in its various forms comes knocking we counter, “My Lord Jesus lives! And because He lives I also live!

If our Lord can conquer death, and He can, all the rest is small stuff! Piddly little problems like the car breaking down, crop failure, treachery and terrorism may happen, BUT Jesus is alive!

Make a list of all the challenges and contrast them to Jesus’ victory over the grave.

It’s cold and windy, but Jesus is alive!

I lost my computer file, but Jesus is risen!

Nuclear bombs are popping, but Jesus lives to make intercession for me!

Persecution, the mail coming late, and the sliver in the finger find their proportion when compared to our living Jesus, our Advocate, standing for our total welfare!

If you want courage you can come to our living Jesus and take it this very moment. He said, “In the world you have tribulation. But take courage! I have overcome the world.” 

Fear and anxiety are contagious, so are boldness and courage. Which contagion do you carry?”

“For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.” (Luke 18:17)

This means God’s hidden glory is to be fully revealed! It means all people’s actions, thoughts and motives will be brought into the open.

MORNING MEDITATIONS – Pam

A friend shared a vision of an angel stirring a large pot. Looking into the pot she saw the angel was stirring Gold. I was immediately taken back to an Aluminum smelter on the Columbia River. The huge ‘pots’ used to melt aluminum were massive, thick, and required intense tools and challenging situations for men to render the metal they were mixing.

The thought came, “What is the temperature for melting gold? Gold is a soft metal and melts at 1,947 degrees F.  I meditated on that.  Then…Our soft bodies and minds suffering intense situations. Not such a lovely image!

What was the temperature of:

Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness?

The garden of Gethsemane? 

The Hebrew children backed against the Red Sea? 

David’s return to Ziklag to find his city burned and all their people taken captive? 

The temperature of Stephen’s stoning?

Our Persoanl temptations?

These are some of the refining experiences I think of.  Is your cross difficult to bare today?  Are you feeling lost and alone? The little olive can relate. It is plucked from its source on the tree  where it has grown and filled out and a huge stone is added to crush the seed so the precious and fragrant oil can be poured out.

1 Peter 1:6-8a  In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be you have been grieved by various trials. That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love.

1 Peter 4: 12-13  Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy, 

These trials are limited by their season. We will get through them. Keep your focus on Him. See Ecclesiastes 3.  

Psalm 66:12  You have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich abundance.

PRAYING FREEDOM FOR ISRAELI HOSTAGES

If your child was abducted, would you fight for their recovery? Let’s say you knew the group who abducted your child, the house where they were captive and the violent men guarding the house. What would you be willing to do to get your child back?

LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE

 

About 240 hostages were taken by the Hamas terrorist group, most Israelis, but a few dozen from other nations. The children pictured here, and more, are among them. A determined fight is ongoing for their recovery, and the end of the terrorists.

In the natural hope for the recovery of the children, men and women is slim. But our God is a compassionate Father. Things impossible with men are possible with God! The Lord will move mountains because of your believing prayer!

Jesus whole ministry is about setting captives free! He ransoms us from sin, condemnation, demons, disease and even death!!!  Our Savior delivers from captivity. I urge you to pray with the parents and families of those in bonds. Here are spiritual weapons of war you can take up on behalf of the hostages.  Use these verses to pray for Israeli captives to be set free!

      There are three real jail-breaks in Acts.

The 11 disciples in Acts 5.   “But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the gates of the prison, and taking them out he said, Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple the whole message of this Life.” 

Peter in Acts 12.  “And behold, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared and a light shone in the cell; and he struck Peter’s side and woke him up, saying, ‘Get up quickly.’ And his chains fell off his hands.”

Paul and Silas. in Acts 16.  “and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.”

Consider the following verses as weapons for warfare on behalf of captives. We appeal to God’s goodness, his mercy and rescuing power!

Psalms 107:10-13 “He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains.”

Psalm 102:20  “To hear the groaning of the prisoner, to set free those who were doomed to death.”

Nahum 1:13  “So now, I will break his yoke bar from upon you, And I will tear off your shackles.

Psalm 68:6 “He leads out the prisoners into prosperity.

Psalm 116:16  “O Lord, surely I am your servant, I am Your servant and the son of Your handmaid. You have loosed my bonds.”

Psalm 146:7  “The Lord sets the prisoners free.

To this day God has made Himself famous as the Liberator. Thanks to His merciful kindness there are many contemporary jail-break accounts. May they be multiplied to God’s glory! He opened prison doors for Brother Yun in China where the doors seemed to open on their own. He is a wonder-working God!

Isaiah has much to say about captives being freed!!!

Isaiah 61:2 He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.

Is 42:22 But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to rescue them; they have been made loot, with no one to say, “Send them back.”

This verse tells us the captives here have no rescuer strong enough or willing enough to demand release. I pray for God’s angry mercy to demand, “Send them back!“ adding the sense [OR I WILL BLISTER YOU!]

Is 49:25  “But this is what the LORD says: ‘Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.’”

Is 43:6 “I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth.”

     In response to your prayers, may the booming, authoritative voice of the Lamb demand, “Give them up!” “Do not hold them back!” “Send them back!”

    MAY THE CAPTORS BE STRUCK WITH A SPIRIT OF PANIC!

1 Sam 14:15 “Then panic struck the whole [Philistine] army—those in the camp and field, and those in the outposts and raiding parties—and the ground shook. It was a panic sent by God.”

Zec 14:13 “And on that day a great panic from the LORD shall fall on them, so that each will seize the hand of another, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other.”

     JOIN IN PRAYER FOR THE HOSTAGES

 

Holy Father, Savior of captives, we appeal to Your goodness, mercy and rescuing power!

You told David, “Pursue and recover all.” We speak this word on behalf of the children – clear up through the seniors in Hamas captivity. Sustain their lives and bring them forth!

You sent Your Son to set all kinds of captives free! As Christ’s ambassadors before Your judgment seat we “proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners!”

You hear the groaning of the prisoner, to set free those who were doomed to death.

You tear off the shackles.

You lead out the prisoners into prosperity

You set the prisoners free.

Father may You own voice thunder, “Give them back! Do not hold them back!

Send them back!”

May You send a panic upon the captors causing them to flee, leaving the hostages free!

There is nothing hidden from the eyes of the Lord! Reveal the exact location(s) of the captives! Send Your delivering, rescuing angels as you have many times through the centuries. Send you Heavenly Cavalry to the rescue!

Guide the human rescuers to safely recover these precious souls! Restore them to health and to their families and friends. Bring forth resurrection beauty from the ashes of this atrocity. May sackcloth be turned to joyful dancing!

You said, “call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”

Some who prayed for Peter’s release doubted You would answer their fervent prayers, but You graciously answered their prayers! Hear our fervent prayers even in moments when they feel like hope against hope!

Father, You reveal Your true nature in deliverance. Let Your voice resound, “Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.”

ISRAEL, RADICAL ISLAM, OUR MESSIAH AND OUR PART

 

  The PromisedLand in Genesis 15:18-21                Israel today  upper center

LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE

 

In the light of –

    the glory of God,

        His presence now with us,

            our security in him,

                the promises of empowerment,

                    Heaven’s distribution of courage

                         and His purposes larger than this life –

I would like to speak of things happening on our tiny earth, under the eye of God. God’s eyes are able to narrow down microscopically to even see Israel’s war with radical Islam. I would like to speak of matters surrounding this war.

     Here is a briefing on:

God’s promise to Abraham and his descendants to possess the holy land.

Our privileged relationship as gentiles to the Jewish believers

The present war between radical Islam and the Jewish people

The broader threat to Christians and the world at large

Our security in Christ Jesus the Lord

And applying our giftings and callings in this hour

PRAYER FOR ISRAEL

We feel shaking in our bodies and grieve with groans and tears for the people of Israel who have felt such barbarism! Our hearts also go out to the Palestinians in Gaza. Most don’t want these Hamas butchers to lead them. But to argue with them could bring deadly reprisals.

Missiles and bullets, brutal killings and abductions. Just watching the suffering on a screen is too much to bare. We know it is so much harder there on the ground!

The nation is now at war and 360,000 reserves have been called up. The language is severe, on the edge of savage, to counter savagery. The word is, Hamas must be wiped out entirely. We are told in Scripture to pray for this nation and God’s purposes for it, as well as his purposes for the nations at large.

There are two ways we may pray. First, Identificationally, praying as if we were there in the nation dodging bullets and missiles, for we know America may yet experience similar things.

The second way to pray is Authoritatively, as those standing with Christ, looking down from the banister of heaven, praying for the tiny planet and the nations below. We stand with Christ, proclaiming Scriptural and Heavenly decrees.

Be mindful, Israel has an infinitely thrilling future as the City of the great King. It is sometimes difficult to see and appreciate this in the midst of the birth pains.

      Here is a prayer I invite you to join in:

Dear Lord Jesus, over your cross was posted, “Jesus, King of the Jews.”  Today we acknowledge Your kingly authority and right over Israel, and all the nations. We pray that you would be satisfied with the travail of your soul for this land and the people you designed to inherit it. You have kept Your promise to bring Israel back to the land, their eternal inheritance, according to your covenant.

Father, based on your word we pray peace for Jerusalem, consolation for Israel, and this through the revelation of the King. We pray Paul’s wonderful, mysterious word, “So all Israel will be saved.”  “Our hearts desire and prayer for them is their salvation.” Dear Father, what better time is than now for this people to see Jesus, in the midst of the rockets’ red glare?

We declare, Israel has only a partial hardening. Partial in duration and partial in intensity. We declare an end to the hardness. Softening hearts now! We pray the revelation of Yeshua Hamashiach, and the Spirit of supplication that they may see the one they have pierced, mourn for him as an only child, and then turn to Him in resurrection reality!

In the present conflict have mercy even if it involves chastening. We pray you would only chasten, and not condemn, just as we pray you would only chasten America and not condemn. We ask Father, how far are You willing to let the grace from the blood of Your Son extend? Make Jerusalem the immovable stone so it’s enemies only injure themselves trying to move it.

Let Your kindness be felt by a nation who has ignored you. Wisdom, courage and power to the defense forces! Secure the boarders! Safety more secure than concrete bunkers. Yeshua, the Strong Tower and Refuge. The fear of the Lord on Israel, and her enemies. And we earnestly pray the release of captive hostages! May this end with a nation in gratitude as they see Your hand achieve these things!

Father you are our great God. Great in judgment, great in mercy, with a glorious Kingdom plan. May your kindness lead the nation of Israel to eye-opening repentance. And let many in the nations who wish to destroy her come to know the King of the Jews as their own sovereign!

Your word tells us, you work all things together for good for those who love you and are called according to your purpose. Grant the fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy that the Jewish people of this land might come to love you. And cause even this war to work together for their good. Remember you have called this people for a special purpose. This is The Day for the fulfillment of all things.

Let a rumble rise from the soil of this land calling out, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Amen!

Please continue to pray for Israel. As you share in her tribulations you will share in her blessings.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
    “May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls
    and security within your citadels.”
For the sake of my family and friends,
    I will say, “Peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek your prosperity.  Ps 122:6-9
