Celebrating Pentecost


VIDEO: How to Celebrate Pentecost 

Christians are those who are committed to Jesus as their Lord. God’s people are the nation of Israel, those who are Jewish by birth or marriage. God created a covenant, or “testament” with Israel which is the Old Testament. Christians have a New Covenant with God through Jesus. It may be labeled as “old”, but it is still relevant to our relationship with our Heavenly Father because God is always the same. Much of what Israel went through will apply to us.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV)

We receive correction so that we stay on the right path with God. Looking at those who walked with God before Jesus will help us know what our Father expects of us. Traditions outlined in the Old Testament will still have meaning for Christians:

And this day shall be to you for a memorial; and you shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever. Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. (Exodus 12:14-15 ESV)

Israel celebrates Passover (Pesach), or the Feast of Unleavened Bread, every year. Most Christians know this as Easter, the day Jesus died. Israel was to celebrate this “forever.”

Shavuot, the Jewish feast we call Pentecost, is a holiday that commemorates the single most important event in Israel’s history: the giving of the Torah (the first five books in the Hebrew Bible) to Moses at Mount Sinai. Although Shavuot, Pentecost, is not as well-known among non-Jews as Pesach, Passover or Sukkot, the Feast of Booths, the three are major festivals in Israel known as the pilgrimage feasts.

Offer a sacrifice to Me three times each year. Keep the festival of matzot (Passover) ... the reaping festival (Shavuot) ... the harvest festival (Sukkot) ... Three times each year, every male among you must appear before God the Lord ... (Exodus 23:14-17)

In biblical times Shavuot meaning “weeks,” marked the beginning of the new agricultural, or harvest, season.

And you shall make for yourself a Festival of Weeks, the first of the wheat harvest, and the festival of the ingathering, at the turn of the year (Exodus 34:22)

Elsewhere, it's called Chag ha'Katzir, meaning “festival of the harvest:”

And the festival of the harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you will sow in the field, and the festival of the ingathering at the departure of the year, when you gather in [the products of] your labors from the field (Exodus 23:16)

Another name for Shavuot is Yom HaBikurim, meaning “Day of the First Fruits," which comes from the practice of bringing fruits to the Temple on Shavuot to thank God. 

On the day of the first fruits, when you offer up a new meal offering to the Lord, on your festival of Weeks; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall not perform any mundane work. (Numbers 28:26)

We saw the “first fruits” of the work of Jesus when the disciples were empowered at the Feast of Pentecost after the Lord ascended to Heaven. It is now time for the final harvest before the Lord returns. 

The celebration of these feasts is a commandment for those who are Jewish, not for Christians, however, we can learn much from God’s people. Following the Lord’s instruction, the disciples gathered in Jerusalem for this festival after Jesus ascended to Heaven.

And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, said He, you have heard of Me. For John truly baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 

When they therefore were come together, they asked of Him, saying, Lord, will You at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And He said to them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in His own power. But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come on you: and you shall be witnesses to me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the Earth.

And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward Heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into Heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into Heaven. (Acts 1:9-11 AKJV)

Despite the fact that they gathered in Jerusalem, nothing happened right away. The Lord said it would be “not many days.” The feast of Pentecost began after the organization of the apostles had been accomplished. It was on the day of Pentecost that the Holy Spirit first empowered the disciples for the work of the Gospel.

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat on each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2:1-4)

The disciples were gathered together in one place, with “one accord.” A unique Greek word, used in 10 of its 12 New Testament occurrences in the Book of Acts, helps us understand the uniqueness of the Christian community. Homothumadon (hom-oth-oo-mad-on’) is a compound of two word meaning to “rush along” and “in unison.” The image is almost musical; a number of notes are sounded which, while different, harmonize in pitch and tone. As the instruments of a great concert under the direction of a concertmaster, so the Holy Spirit blends together the lives of members of Christ's church.

The power of the Holy Spirit came for a purpose. When Jesus was being questioned before the crucifixion, the Apostle Peter fled when he was accused of being aligned with Jesus. Now, empowered by Holy Spirit, the same man spoke boldly:

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said to them, You men of Judaea, and all you that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known to you, and listen to my words: For these are not drunken, as you suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

And it shall come to pass in the last days, said God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Acts 2:14-20 AKJV)

Each person present heard Peter speak in their native tongue as the apostle quoted the prophet Joel. That Pentecost Feast was the beginning, this 2022 Pentecost will mark the time of the end. 

The Holy Spirit revealed the beginning of the Tribulation with a series of eclipses where the sun will turn into darkness. The sun turned to blood on the Second Passover that occurred this year. The Lord has been revealing His ways in heavenly visits to the Secret Place, and as we have discussed, every blood moon connected with the Hebrew feast of Second Passover has been connected with a sign in the Earth concerning the return of the Lord.    

During this turbulent time, God has provided an answer: 

And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord—Christ] shall be saved. (Acts 2:21 AMPC)

Calling on the name of the Lord is much more than simply stating He is the Son of God. It must be done with adoring worship of who He is, the Christ, the Anointed One of God. When we do this, Jesus will save us! Peter followed this statement with the very first altar call:

Now when they heard this they were stung (cut) to the heart, and they said to Peter and the rest of the apostles (special messengers), Brethren, what shall we do?

And Peter answered them, Repent (change your views and purpose to accept the will of God in your inner selves instead of rejecting it) and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of and release from your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:37-39 AMPC)

We must turn from the world, from sin, and turn toward Jesus, looking for His will in our lives. When we do that, we can be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ so that we can be forgiven and turn from our sins. This comes with a great gift, the Holy Spirit.

For the promise [of the Holy Spirit] is to and for you and your children, and to and for all that are far away, [even] to and for as many as the Lord our God invites and bids to come to Himself. (Acts 2:39 AMPC)

Wisdom and guidance from the Holy Spirit is for every Christian, everywhere! It is important to be willing to repent, to turn from our ways:

And [Peter] solemnly and earnestly witnessed (testified) and admonished (exhorted) with much more continuous speaking and warned (reproved, advised, encouraged) them, saying, “Be saved from this crooked (perverse, wicked, unjust) generation.” Therefore those who accepted and welcomed his message were baptized, and there were added that day about 3,000 souls. (Acts 2:40-41 AMPC)

Just as it was in the first coming of the Lord Jesus, so it is now. The word “wicked” means twisted. The generation upon the Earth is perverse, twisted, and unjust. But Jesus is the answer. The Holy Spirit is our Guide. Pentecost is the season where we celebrate and receive Him.

Believers' Boot Camp series

Believers' Boot Camp - Volume One
Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two
Roadmap to Heaven
Destroying Curses
in the Courts of Heaven


Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively.

Conviction, Correction, and Condemnation

VIDEO: Conviction, Correction, and Condemnation

As Christians, we are called to repentance, which means to turn from sin. John the Baptist preached repentance and we are to see sin as something horrible that we need to turn from. 

John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness (desert), preaching a baptism [obligating] repentance (a change of one’s mind for the better, heartily amending one’s ways, with abhorrence of his past sins) in order to obtain forgiveness of and release from sins. (Mark 1:4 AMPC)

Bear fruits that are deserving and consistent with [your] repentance [that is, conduct worthy of a heart changed, a heart abhorring sin]... (Luke 3:8 AMPC)

When we confess and repent, we must mean it with our hearts, we must have a true and proper confession, not a false or flippant confession, where we just want freedom from attacks of the enemy, or from backlash we may be experiencing. God sees our hearts, He knows our motives and our intents.

Then hear in Heaven, Your dwelling place, and forgive and act and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart You know, for You and You only know the hearts of all the children of men, (1 Kings 8:39 AMPC) 

We must repent with sincerity from our heart. This means we must fully agree that we have done something that is against God, something that is not right, which may be quite humbling. Regardless of what the sin is or was.

Different scriptures talk about how people used to ask for forgiveness in biblical times. 

  • They were truly humbled, they sat in ashes and sackcloth. 
    • Some people even fasted from food and drink. 
  • They portrayed on the outside what they were feeling on the inside. 
    • They felt grieved about sinning. 

We are supposed to feel bad about our sins  to some extent. It will help us to remember not to do it again! There may be times when feeling bad about the sin we have committed is all that we think about. 

  • We may feel so overwhelmed with guilt and shame. 

When this happens,  we must remember that God has forgiven us!

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14 AMPC)

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action]. (1 John 1:9, AMPC)

 I, even I, am He Who blots out and cancels your transgressions, for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins. (Isaiah 43:25, AMPC)

When it becomes something we cannot let go of, no matter how hard we try, no matter how much we pray for help to let it go, this is a sign that the enemy has brought condemnation upon us. 

  • Satan condemns us. 
  • God corrects us.

Let’s look at what the word condemn means so we can understand it a little better: 

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines condemn as: 

    • To declare to be reprehensible, wrong, or evil usually after weighing evidence and without reservation
    • To declare to be wrong

Strong’s defines condemn as: 

    • Penalty
    • Punishment

When you are condemned you may feel:

  • Truly horrible about what you did (which is how we should feel so we turn from it, and do our best not to do it again)
    • This is all we think about
    • We can’t let it go
    • We can’t forgive ourselves for committing that sin (no matter what the sin was)
  • We become so very sad, disappointed and upset with ourselves
    • It may be difficult to smile or have joy
    • We may cry about it, sometimes we may even cry a lot
    • It may be difficult to show love or even have love for ourselves and God
  • So ashamed 
    • Which is ok if it helps us to keep from committing that same sin
    • When we are so ashamed, we feel that it may be difficult to face God, or even people, if they knew.

  • Sometimes, Satan will even tell people they are not good enough to be called children of God.
  • He can lead them to believe that what they did was so bad that God will no longer love them anymore because of their sin, or they feel that they can no longer be used by God.

The feeling of condemnation may be accompanied by a variety of emotions. Remember God does not condemn us! 

Yet I am glad now, not because you were pained, but because you were pained into repentance [and so turned back to God]; for you felt a grief such as God meant you to feel, so that in nothing you might suffer loss through us or harm for what we did. For godly grief and the pain God is permitted to direct, produce a repentance that leads and contributes to salvation and deliverance from evil, and it never brings regret; but worldly grief (the hopeless sorrow that is characteristic of the pagan world) is deadly [breeding and ending in death]. (2 Corinthians 7:9-10, AMPC)

For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him. He who believes in Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation—he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ’s name.] (John 3:17-18, AMPC)

I like that 2 Corinthians 7:10 says: Godly grief and the pain God has permitted and allowed is directing us to repentance, which can lead to and contribute to our salvation and deliverance from evil. Wow! What we are allowed to feel at first should lead us to repentance! When we repent, God has already forgiven us! If you find it hard to let go, you can take your thoughts captive and bring them under the obedience of Jesus Christ!

For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), (2 Corinthians 10:4-5 AMPC)

Or, you could ask the Holy Spirit if there is a soul wound involved in what you are feeling. 

  • Is there a soul wound against God, because things have not turned out like you expected?
  • Is there a soul wound because of things you have done? A soul wound against yourself? This can prevent you from feeling like you are worthy of forgiveness. 

Now God does convict us! Yes, there is a difference. 

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines conviction as:

    • The act of proving or finding guilty: the state of being proven guilty

Strong’s defines convict as: (the "I" here is the Lord)

    • I reprove, rebuke, discipline, 
    • I expose, show to be guilty
    • Of uncertain affinity; to confute, admonish

When we are convicted of our sin, we are simply being shown that we have sinned. The Holy Spirit is telling us where we sinned, so that we can immediately confess, repent and plead the blood of Jesus over our sin. 

And when He comes, He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment: (John 16:8 AMPC)

The Word conviction means to bring about righteousness, uprightness of heart and right standing with God. As we repent, we are no longer feeling convicted about that sin. It has been removed. That sin is no longer there. There is a difference between feeling convicted as the Holy Spirit convicts us about sin and feeling condemned because we sinned. 

The conviction of sin also brings correction. 

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines correcting as:

    • To make or set right
    • To alter or adjust so as to bring to some standard or required condition
    • To point out usually for amendment the errors or faults of

Conviction brings about changes to our behavior, our thoughts, and our actions. It corrects them and alters our perspectives so that we are in line with how God desires for us to live. Correction can be the pain that is allowed to come, so that we know that we have done something not quite right. 

Reading the Bible teaches us how to walk in God’s ways. It can also be used for correction. 

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; (2 Timothy 3:16, AMP)

We have been forgiven. When a person repents, God does not pick and choose who receives forgiveness or not. Not one person is better or “more saved” than another. So, if you have confessed, repented, turned from your sin and saw your sin the way that God sees it, as something horrible, and asked to plead the blood of Jesus over this sin, then your sin has been forgiven. 

As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:12, AMP)

If you have forgiven someone for something, would you want them to keep coming back to you saying “I'm sorry” over and over and over again? No, you have already forgiven them for their actions. You would want them to let it go. Trust and rest that it is blotted out of all records in Heaven. There is no longer any record of that sin. 

Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. (Romans 8:1, AMPC)

If we think our sin is too great for God to forgive, then we are saying that the sacrifice of Jesus is not greater than our sin. He is the Son of God and His sacrifice is far greater than our sin. 

Sometimes, even when we know that a certain action is wrong, we occasionally fail in our attempts to stop ourselves from engaging in it even when we know it is wrong. It is like the enemy is pushing a button, and we sin without even thinking about it. Sometimes generational curses or soul wounds allow the enemy to gain access to us. 

Once you complete the first three courses at the free online school: the Courts of Heaven Academy, you will be ready for a prayer appointment to receive assistance if you are continually struggling with a specific sin! Look for the “Known Sin” appointment at the bottom of the 401 Removing Charges course.

Second Passover and Blood Moons


 

The blood moon fell on the Hebrew feast of the Second Passover on Saturday May 14-15 2022. We have already discussed the significance of this eclipse in connection to a trio of eclipses in the article “Signs in the Heavens”.  However, in order to understand the complete meaning we must first learn about the Jewish holiday on which it falls as well as investigating the previous blood moons that occurred during the same festival.

Second Passover

…If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of touching a dead body or is far off on a journey, still he shall keep the Passover to the Lord. On the fourteenth day of the second month in the evening they shall keep it… (Numbers 9:10-11 AMPC)

If a Hebrew missed the Passover celebration because they were unclean or on a journey, they were commanded to keep the Passover, one month later. When Jesus came the first time, non-Hebrews could not celebrate Passover. At first, Jesus was only sent to Israel.

And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried to Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, You son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and sought Him, saying, Send her away; for she cries after us. But He answered and said, I Am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Matthew 15:22-24 AKJV)

The first coming of Jesus was for Israel, just as the first Passover could only be celebrated by the Jews. Everyone else at that time was “unclean,” and “dead” because they didn’t have a relationship with God. Gentiles, those not born Jewish, have now become clean, redeemed from sin, and are in right relationship with God because of the death of Jesus on the cross. 

The two Passovers foreshadow how Jesus would fulfill prophecy about Himself. 

  • First Passover: The first coming established Jesus as the New Ruler of the Earth and granted Him all authority in Heaven and Earth. 
    • At  this time, the Jews expected Jesus to conquer the world, but He didn’t. It was about spiritual freedom so those who were defiled (Gentiles) could become clean.
  • Second Passover: At His second coming, He will rule and reign on the Earth.


Blood Moons on Second Passover

And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the Earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. (Joel 2:30-31, Acts 2:19-20 AKJV)

A blood moon occurs when the moon in a total eclipse appears reddish in color as it is illuminated by sunlight, filtered, and refracted by the Earth's atmosphere causing it to have a reddish hue. When I began looking into the dates of blood moons and where they occurred when they were connected to a Second Passover, here is what I discovered. A blood moon is only connected to five Second Passover dates in the last 100 years. Each year this occurs, it is connected to essential events related to the end times.

1920


May 1-2: 2nd Passover
May 2-3: Blood Moon


The lunar eclipse begins, and it is  visible throughout France. The League of Nations is established in Paris. The US doesn’t join the League.

The components in this organization will eventually become the United Nations (U.N.) This is the birth of the UN.

1938


May 14-15: 2nd Passover
May 13-14: Blood Moon


This blood moon begins the morning the Second Passover meal is taken the night of the 14th. Only North & South America as well as the Pacific Ocean are affected by this eclipse. 

This feast is to celebrate the night the angel of death passed over the houses of Israel but killed all the first born sons of Egypt. The date most frequently associated with the start of the Holocaust is January 30, 1933: This is when Adolf Hitler was appointed German chancellor, setting in motion what would become the Nazi genocide against the Jews. 
A major turning point in Nazi policy toward Jews was on November 9 to November 10, 1938, in an incident known as “Kristallnacht,” Nazis in Germany torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses and killed close to 100 Jews. In the aftermath of Kristallnacht, also called the “Night of Broken Glass,” some 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to Nazi concentration camps. 
In the coming years, many Israelites died because America sat idly by and didn’t enter the battle. The US only entered the war after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, in the South Pacific.

1939


May 2-3: Second Passover
May 3-4: Blood Moon


Hitler signed a nonaggression treaty with the Soviet Union and invaded Poland officially beginning the Second World War. Japan’s twin-engine “Betty” Bomber makes its first test flight. The bomb this plane carries was specifically designed for attack on Pearl Harbor.

The area of effect for this eclipse begins by encompassing the Soviet Union (Russia), Japan, Pearl Harbor and Hawaii. Many events began in this year, the effect of some would only be seen three years later.

After this war, the League of Nations is disbanded and many of the components are moved into the United Nations which is established in San Francisco, California in North America. The League was a precursor to the UN. 



1985

May 4-5: Second Passover & Blood Moon


The area of effect is centered around the Middle East and Israel. The US is completely excluded from this lunar eclipse. Hezbollah, which is a branch of Islam, is founded and later is supported by Syria. 

America is completely unaffected by this eclipse. In the US, the first Internet domain name was registered (symbolics.com) and Microsoft launches Windows 1.0. We know that a Microsoft patent will be used to create the Mark of the Beast. A  microchip will be implanted into the hand to record and track data at the very least.

2022


May 14-15, 2022: Second Passover 
May 15-16, 2022: Blood Moon


The area of effect is centered around eastern  North America. The Lord has told us that on September 13, 2022, the first seal of Revelation will be broken as the AntiChrist rides forward during the 77th session of the UN General Assembly. On the 19-20th, he will broker a peace treaty which is the seven-year agreement known as “Daniel’s Week” and the beginning of the Tribulation. 
When we studied the Book of Revelation from Jesus’s point of view, we discovered that though we know when the Tribulation will begin, we don’t know the day or hour of His return. Every blood moon in the last 100 years points to what we learned when studying Revelation with the Lord:


  1. The United Nations (U.N.) will be involved
  2. The AntiChrist will be aided by an organization
    1. Like the Nazi’s, the organization will seem innocent at first, but then he will use it to attack Israel and Christians as he tries to rule the world.
  3. The Microsoft patent for a biometric chip implanted in the hand will be the Mark of the Beast

This sign in the heavens confirms that this is indeed the year of the Tribulation. Another Holocaust is on the horizon. Like the Nazi organization, it may start out as something benign, but in the end, the entire world will be engulfed in calamity. 

There was a symmetry in the way the blood moons were connected to the Second Passover dates. 
  • When the blood moon fell on the first day for most of the world, Israel was in great danger. 
  • When the blood moon began on the second day, events affected the entire world. 
The Mark of the Beast may begin in Israel, but eventually, it will encompass the entire world. 
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave to be marked on the right hand or the forehead so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. (Revelation 13:16-17 ESV)
 Now is the time to draw close to the Lord. To accomplish this, we must be walking in God’s ways. The Lord is our protector and if we stay close to Him, we have nothing to fear. He has told us these things in advance so that we can prepare for what is coming. 
And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the LORD has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the LORD calls. (Joel 2:32 ESV)

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.
