Well, we all know that no one likes change and sudden change brings things to a screeching halt. So if the power’s that be have big changes in their plan’s then it has been in the works for a while. Case in point a friend of mine told me about 10 years ago that our US government having a plan to use NAFTA to open world trade from Mexico to Canada with Kansas City as its hub called “smart port” and the I 35 corridor would be the connection. I laughed and said what is a corridor? He said what we call a highway. I said sure what ever. Then 7 or 8 years later hear in Kansas city I heard that Smart Port happened. Then I started noticing on the world news when they spoke about a major highway they would say corridor. Now here in Kansas City news Abc Cbs Nbc Fox corridor is now being used. What happened to my highways, I didn’t vote on this, no just kidding, trying to make a point, things happen slowly and it’s not caught by many.

The story about the frog in warm water sitting on a stove is true. Turn up the heat ever so slowly and after a while the water is boiling the frog is dead and he never saw it coming. Of course that is a male frog the females are more in touch with their feeling and get out before it’s all over.  

I was just thinking the other day about a statement my “same friend as above” friend had made about a speach Pres. George Bush in which He eluded to the “New World Order” .  Well that has been years now, and my friend said those words “New World Order” will one day, not only be known by everyone, but would control everyone. Well I am a good conservative registered Republican and that was offensive to me but because of his track record I thought let me check it out. Years later the check happened right after the market correction that was felt around the world.

I just put New World Order in google search engine, then hit the news button and wow how time has changed things, it’s everywhere, here are a few. By the way it’s not coming but here now according to the news not conspiracy web pages just the news.

Yet it is precisely the prospect of cooperation and mutuality that present-day realists glorify. They revere President George H. W. Bush, who spoke of a “new world order” in which “the nations of the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony,” where “the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle,” “The Wall Street Journal”

One Week Later, a New World Order “The Wall Street Journal”

New world order : BBC news

What is all this, I don’t know, but I think it would wise to keep our eyes and ears open, thats all. No Frog’s in the pot here. NO NWO

update 10/05/08

Well a few days have passed and I can not believe what is happening, the words “martial law” are  being talked about across the net. Some members of congress were forced by fear of martial law to pass the bail out bill.

It is all about the money but not just money but more money for those few who sit at top of the great economic pyramid. Things seem to be moving fast into a one world market eventually that will need a one world government. Well then, all we will need is to have a one world religion, then all the pieces are ready for Revelation 13

 

Revelation 13:16-18 Young’s Literal Translation

16 And it maketh all, the small, and the great, and the rich, and the poor, and the freemen, and the servants, that it may give to them a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads, 17 and that no one may be able to buy, or to sell, except he who is having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is the wisdom! He who is having the understanding, let him count the number of the beast, for the number of a man it is, and its number is six hundred and sixty six.

IT is coming

As long as Joe 6 pack has food and DRINK well what’s two more 6’s. “joke but not funny”. What if there were only a 1 % chance that the doctrine that most of the AMERICAN church holds to was wrong. What if Jesus does not return until after the seven year tribulation. What will the church do if it is here, when it all comes down? What if we have to trust God in the midst of the flood like Noah who was safe UNDER the same rain that killed everyone else. What if we had to trust God in the midst of the fire, like the 3 Hebrew children who walked in the fire but the ones throwing them in were killedby the same fire. Obedience made the difference. Well it is only a 1% chance right? If that were to happen the church over night would look just like the one in the book of Acts. That might not be so bad. They over came by the blood of the lamb the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives even unto death.  

 

Oh by the way I was in Jerusalem on 06/06/2006 and satan worshipers had gathered there to ask satan to release the antichrist. BIG news, that can not happen untill God says it is time, but eventually it will. Let us be ready for Jesus either before or after the trouble thats coming, just be ready.

Warning: this is satire, purely satire:

Live from New York, Starbucks, Johnnie G here at the presidential round table celebration. Where the elite from both political parties have gathered to party and reflect over the greatest TV series ever witnessed. It was the first season to break out of the same old, same old, four year cycle and did so with thunder and lighting. It was just in time, as viewers have been steadily declining since live coverage of the OJ trial ended years ago. There has been an increasing view that the RTVNN Reality TV News Networks have some how lowered its standards to that of professional wrestling.

Just to catch you up, the reflections are bringing cheers and even tears to the eyes of those who have worked so long and hard. They have given the American voting viewers what they really need, ENTERTAINMENT.

The Religious right had lost it’s champion for Life “I’ll be your Hucklebee from Arkansas.” The Liberal Left had lost their “Better half to the HillBillary Dynasty” also from Arkansas.

This was not good timing with oil prices at an all time high and more people staying home to watch the series. With the starting players on the Bench radical moves had to be made to draw people back to the game. The Right, made a move that many thought was wrong, but like a snowball from Alaska, Palin rolled right into every warm and fuzy heart in America.

The Left chose the LEFT BEHIND SERIES as their motto with hope that the liberal heart strings of the over quilified would produce a great rally for the underdog. Obama was truly a SUPER HERO to millions of disgruntled college grads working in the food service industry. The L team went with controversial and trash talking back-up quarterback who has the ability to send the opponents running in all directions. The only drawback is Biden has Bitten his tongue from time to time. The loss of his tongue will forever be linked to his quote, “Make no mistake about this, Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president.”

It was on a coincidence that Obama and B. C. had just come to gather, to compare other great season’s when Bill had one of those golden moments of revelation. “It’s only Television, it’s never to late put her in, yeah put Hillary back in the game.” The rest is history and they thought that would not happen until the 2012 series.

 What the American people must never forget is, great idea’s and political change doesn’t just happen. What America has been waiting on is the American championship of double A “AA” ball. “Ladies take your corners.” Thank you very much for the greatest show on earth Arkansas VS Alaska. You ask what about McCain and Obama and Biden, honestly it doesn’t matter because this season we have taken the Vice out of the Presidency.

Vice is a practice or habit that is considered immoral, depraved, and/or degrading in the associated society. In more minor usage, vice can refer to a fault, a defect, an infirmity, or merely a bad habit. Synonyms for vice include fault, depravity, sin, iniquity, wickedness and corruption. The modern Spanish term that best captures its original meaning is the word vicious, which means “full of vice.” In this sense, the word vice comes from the latin word vitium, meaning “failing or defect”. Vice is the opposite of virtue.

Vice is also a generic legal term for criminal offenses involving prostitution, lewdness, lasciviousness, and obscenity. Illegal forms of gambling are also often included as a vice in law enforcement departments that deal with gambling as a crime.

2008 for ever, it doesn’t get better than this good night from Johnnie G corresponding for RTVNN Reality TV News Networks.

Several years ago I had the opportunity to travel across china. I forget the city but along the pearl river in a small antique shop I found this old piece of jewelry. I made a big deal about liking it and later I found out that Beth someone on the team had bought it for me as a gift. On the plane I sit by an older Chinese man who told me that it was an old Chinese passport of an ambassador. I have no idea if that is correct but I would love for some one to tell me what it says. I have been all over the place on missions trips and I have carried this with me around the world. For me it has seemed prophetic, as a token to remember I am a messenger and an ambassador. My message is the Love of Jesus.  Any Idea’s what it is, or says please leave a comment. Thanks for the help.

We better wipe the sleepy from our eyes and pray while we are going about our lives as usual. The END TIMES are approaching “at least they are not getting farther away” and we are still here so let us occupy. Let us Pray, Life as we have known it is changing quickly. It is time for us to humble our selves and pray and turn from OUR wicked ways. Then GOD !!!!

When I was a teenager I remember all the prophesies about Russia and China marching on Israel. Well then the wall came down and we all thought Russia was a thing of the past. BUT Russia has had its eyes on oil which means money and they are about to be a real player again we may all be surprised how right the old preachers were. Time will tell. I have a good friend who is a missionary connected to Venezuela so I’m very concerned about the news. There has already been increasing trouble.

Check out the AP story below

Russia to send ships, planes to Venezuela

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Russia’s plan to deploy ships and warplanes to the Caribbean for joint military exercises with Venezuela is allowing President Hugo Chavez to capitalize on tensions between Moscow and the U.S. and showcase a growing military alliance.

Russia announced on Monday that it will send a naval squadron and long-range patrol planes for the exercises later this year — a move that appeared retaliatory after the U.S. sent warships to deliver aid to Georgia following its conflict with Russia.

The deployment is expected to be the largest Russian naval maneuvers in the Caribbean — and perhaps the Western Hemisphere — since the Cold War.

Chavez considers the U.S. a defense threat, and his welcoming of the Russian navy contrasted with his sharp criticism of the recent reactivation of the U.S. Navy’s Fourth Fleet for the Caribbean and Latin America. He ridiculed possible U.S. concerns about the Russian deployment on Sunday, saying: “Go ahead and squeal, Yankees.”

“This is vintage Chavez. He rarely misses an opportunity to needle and provoke Washington,” said Michael Shifter, an analyst at the Washington-based think tank Inter-American Dialogue. “He is taking advantage of the growing chill in U.S.-Russia relations, especially over the situation in Georgia, to poke his finger in (President) Bush’s eye. There is nothing he relishes more.”

Chavez says the U.S. Fourth Fleet — which was dissolved after World War II — poses a threat to the region. U.S. officials say the fleet will help maintain security while performing humanitarian missions and counter-drug operations.

Anna Gilmour, an analyst at Jane’s Intelligence Review, said she believes the exercises will be primarily for the benefit of Venezuela, which has been drawing closer to Russia and buying weapons from Kalashnikov assault rifles to Sukhoi fighter jets. She said the maneuvers also appear to be a response to the relaunch of the U.S. Fourth Fleet.

“By allowing Russian vessels to dock at Venezuelan ports, Chavez is sending the message that the U.S. is not the only major power active in the Caribbean,” Gilmour said.

The U.S. government, however, appeared unconcerned.

U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack poked fun at Russia’s navy, saying if Russia really intends to send ships to the Caribbean, “then they found a few ships that can make it that far.”

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko insisted that Russia’s decision to send a naval squadron and planes to Venezuela was made before Russia’s war with Georgia and is unrelated to the conflict.

But last week, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would mount an unspecified response to recent U.S. aid shipments to Georgia using Navy vessels on the Black Sea.

Shifter said it’s clear Russia in “unhappy about the U.S.’s increasing presence in the Black Sea” and “as part of its resurgent nationalism, Russia wants to flex its muscles and remind Washington that it too has important alliances in the U.S. backyard.”

Associated Press writers Vladimir Isachenkov in Moscow, Lolita Baldor in Washington and Christopher Toothaker in Caracas contributed to this report.

Venezuela rejects US flight-safety advisory

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela’s aviation agency is criticizing a U.S. travel advisory informing travelers that the U.S. can’t vouch for the security of flights departing Venezuela.

The National Civil Aviation Institute insists Venezuela’s airports are in full compliance with international standards set by the U.N. agency overseeing civil aviation.

Institute president Jose Luis Martinez Bravo denied on Tuesday that Venezuela’s government has blocked U.S. officials from visiting its airports.

But he acknowledges disagreement with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration on its request to evaluate airport security. He says the U.S. agency only has the authority to evaluate its own airlines’ operations in Venezuelan airports.

My pastor Todd Bennett preached a message yesterday from Joshua chapter 2 and when He came to verse  15 Then she let them down by a rope through the window, since she lived in a house that was [built] into the wall of the city. my mind came to a screeching stop. read the story below

Joshua 2 1 Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two men as spies from Acacia Grove, saying, “Go and scout the land, especially Jericho.” So they left, and they came to the house of a woman, a prostitute named Rahab, and stayed there. 2 The king of Jericho was told, “Look, some of the Israelite men have come here tonight to investigate the land.” 3 Then the king of Jericho sent [word] to Rahab and said, “Bring out the men who came to you and entered your house, for they came to investigate the entire land.” 4 But the woman had taken the two men and hidden them. So she said, “Yes, the men did come to me, but I didn’t know where they were from. 5 At nightfall, when the gate was about to close, the men went out, and I don’t know where they were going. Chase after them quickly, and you can catch up with them!” 6 But she had taken them up to the roof and hidden them among the stalks of flax that she had arranged on the roof. 7 The men pursued them along the road to the fords of the Jordan, and as soon as they left to pursue them, the gate was shut. 8 Before the men fell asleep, she went up on the roof 9 and said to them, “I know that the Lord has given you this land and that dread of you has fallen on us, and everyone who lives in the land is panicking because of you. 10 For we have heard how the Lord dried up the waters of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two Amorite kings you completely destroyed across the Jordan. 11 When we heard this, we lost heart, and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on earth below. 12 Now please swear to me by the Lord that you will also show kindness to my family, because I showed kindness to you. Give me a sure sign 13 that you will spare the lives of my father, mother, brothers, sisters, and all who belong to them, and save us from death.” 14 The men answered her, “[We will give] our lives for yours. If you don’t report our mission, we will show kindness and faithfulness to you when the Lord gives us the land.” 15 Then she let them down by a rope through the window, since she lived in a house that was [built] into the wall of the city. 16 “Go to the hill country so that the men pursuing you won’t find you,” she said to them. “Hide yourselves there for three days until they return; afterwards, go on your way.” 17 The men said to her, “We will be free from this oath you made us swear, 18 unless, when we enter the land, you tie this scarlet cord to the window through which you let us down. Bring your father, mother, brothers, and all your father’s family into your house. 19 If anyone goes out the doors of your house, his blood will be on his own head, and we will be innocent. But if anyone with you in the house should be harmed, his blood will be on our heads. 20 And if you report our mission, we are free from the oath you made us swear.” 21 “Let it be as you say,” she replied, and she sent them away. After they had gone, she tied the scarlet cord to the window. 22 So the two men went into the hill country and stayed there three days until the pursuers had returned. They searched all along the way, but did not find them. 23 Then the men returned, came down from the hill country, and crossed [the Jordan]. They went to Joshua son of Nun and reported everything that had happened to them. 24 They told Joshua, “The Lord has handed over the entire land to us. Everyone who lives in the land is also panicking because of us.”

Now knowing that the prostitutes house was built into the wall read this.

Joshua 6 15-23 15 Early on the seventh day, they started at dawn and marched around the city seven times in the same way. That was the only day they marched around the city seven times. 16 After the seventh time, the priests blew the trumpets, and Joshua said to the people, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city. 17 But the city and everything in it are set apart to the Lord for destruction. Only Rahab the prostitute and everyone with her in the house will live, because she hid the men we sent. 18 But keep yourselves from the things set apart, or you will be set apart for destruction. If you take any of those things, you will set apart the camp of Israel for destruction and bring disaster on it. 19 For all the silver and gold, and the articles of bronze and iron, are dedicated to the Lord and must go into the Lord’s treasury.” 20 So the people shouted, and the trumpets sounded. When they heard the blast of the trumpet, the people gave a great shout, and the wall collapsed. The people advanced into the city, each man straight ahead, and they captured the city. 21 They completely destroyed everything in the city with the sword-every man and woman, both young and old, and every ox, sheep, and donkey. 22 Joshua said to the two men who had scouted the land, “Go to the prostitute’s house and bring the woman out of there, and all who are with her, just as you promised her.” 23 So the young men who had scouted went in and brought out Rahab and her father, mother, brothers, and all who belonged to her. They brought out her whole family and settled them outside the camp of Israel.

Wow I don’t know about you but to me I would like an engineer or an architect to explain to me what that might look like. Maybe angles worked at the speed of sound breaking apart the brick piece by piece, leaving the house standing as the wall falls.

Jesus came from Her linage so when God saved her house He must have had in mind He was building His own and the Gates “or walls” of hell would not triumph over it.

Paul tells the church in Corinth that they had many instructors but He was their father. When I first read this years ago I remembered the words of Jesus ” Call NO MAN FATHER.”  I had heard all the things we protestants say about using that term for priests as if it is OK to call our natural dad’s father but not our spiritual fathers. I think it is the heart of man, Jesus is addressing. Man exalt’s their spiritual fathers above the throne of God and His leadership.

1 cor 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.

  

The word used for fathers is Pater which means “father of the corporeal nature, natural fathers, both parents a more remote ancestor, the founder of a family or tribe, progenitor of a people, forefather”

I don’t think Paul would describe himself in such a way without the Lord leading, lets look at fathering in the way it relates to the church today. I believe it is a place of relationship not Lordship.

The Modern Example

Ronald Dale Gross
Ronald Dale Gross

Ron Gross is my Dad, my Father, my mentor. Dad has pastored for 50 years all of which has been with the Southern Baptist. When I came back to Christ at 21 years old out of a life of drugs and alcohol I needed a radical walk with God to match my personality and makeup. I was always a radical, good or bad wanting to take things to their ultimate conclusion. Dad Knew that and actually encouraged me to attend a charismatic church giving me permission so to speak to venture out and build my own history with God.

Dad not only had a 4 year college degree but 3 more years at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. When I began to preach without the degree Dad never gave as much as a hint I should do it the way He did. When I began to respond to the call to the nations Dad never said to me you are married and have kids and you need to stay at home and preserve your life. He actually gave financially to every trip even though He and Mom lived a modest lifestyle.

Dad had almost nothing in common with His dad yet He never argued or pointed out where His dad was wrong. Me on the other hand the radical maverick I am have always challenged my dad yet could never push Him to the place of stopping to relate though I am sure He has been tempted. I say all that to say this, my son is now 30 and had taken my sin walk in the world to a new level and is now taking His walk with God to a new level.

David on the Guitar
David on the Guitar

 

I am so proud of Him as He has finished up track 2 of the night watch at the International House of Prayer. He has been signing and playing both the guitar and drums with different worship teams as well as being involved with an inner city ministry.

I have learned many things from my dad yet only recently have I concluded He has been quietly mentoring me for years by His silence. I now strive to mentor my son with silence as he tests his wings, the more I pray and the less I say the more He soars.

prv. 17:9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

I have heard it said “He who fathers well has been fathered well.” Jesus was Fathered well and after He covered our transgression by His own blood He confessed our righteousness to His father and said to us “greater works shall you do because I go to my Father.” I think that defines a true Father desiring their children to do greater works than them. I believe Jesus was talking about serving the needy under the annointing of Holy Spirit not building empires.

So how does that relate to the church today, well for weeks now I have been listening to all the “Fathers” release their discernment on Todd Bentley and the lakeland revival. My position is, covering a transgression DOES NOT MEAN COVER IT UP, but to cover the person with love and with prayer. It is not a time for gossip or to sell your product or toot your horn or say I told you so. Take heed lest you fall, please lets cover the fallen with prayer and mercy and ask the Lord to release grace for healing and restoration.

I have studied church history for years and power gifts resting on weak and broken vessels bring a premature end if not fathered well. Then let the real Father’s please stand up. Take your position of silence of accusation and vocal in prayer.

If you study church history you will find those who trumpet the sin of other’s have their own they are hiding, but blowing the trumpet is their own uncovering.

The lessons are obvious they speak louder than us, the uncovering has begun and will continue. We are in the midst of the greatest national shaking, I have ever seen, we are truely in the last days, and the last day fathers must rise up.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Well at least a couple of years are passed I am now 50. My Dad is still preaching at over 70 and my son continues grow and find His own history in God. Many things are changing in this world and all creation groans waiting for : well I think a big part of the waiting is for fathers to FATHER.  God give us Grace

Several nights ago I had a dream and I just can’t get it out of my mind maybe bloging about it will help me.

Here it is:

I was in the back seat of a taxi with a pregnant white lady about to give birth. Her White husband was driving the taxi and He began to ask me to please deliver the baby and He knew He would not make it to the hospital in time. I told Him I had never done that before and I didn’t think I could. All the sudden the lady was giving birth and the the next thing I knew the baby was in my hands. It was a black baby and the Father looked at me for explanation and I gave it. I said don’t worry, your wife has not committed adultery this is a spiritual baby. It represents the orphans of Africa.

With those words the alarm sounded 3:40 am letting me know it’s time for work. The dream seemed so real I just can’t shake it.

In the Natural we just received word that food prices had doubled in Uganda due to the devalued American dollar. We have about 30 children in an orphanage in Entebee Uganda and we are just making it right now. I felt overwhelmed with “where are we going to come up with more money?”. That could have caused the dream. Or maybe it was the new license plates on my car that has MD on them as I have been joking I am now Dr John MD. Or maybe it’s because my spiritual kids Travis and Christy Kolder  just had a baby.

Or maybe just maybe we are to birth something in prayer to see the spirit of adoption released from Abba Father himself. I know this Jesus loves the children and His Father is the Father to the Fatherless. Join with me as we pray for the Lord to visit the orphans of Africa, God knows we don’t handle visitations well here in the states. Father visit the children with your grace and mercy and release provision for them. In Jesus name Amen.
