“Watch the Middle East” and “the West has Fallen Asleep”
In August 2008, I was praying with Robert Holmes. God said “Keep your eyes on the Middle East. Watch it.”
Exactly three years later, in August 2011, Robert and I were discussing about ‘watching the Middle East.’ We found that both of us have noticed nothing very interesting in three whole years.
So we asked God “In 2008 you asked us to watch the Middle East – Lord is there more?” Continue reading Review of Empire America
The history of America is a phenomenon. In less than 300 years since its inception, this young nation has accomplished what no other nation has been able to accomplish in a similar time frame: ascend to an industrial, economic and political world power; achieve reserve currency status; and be regarded as a universal symbol of prosperity.
America was founded as “one nation under God.” God was morally and spiritually intertwined with our society, with evidence of sincere faith woven into the Constitution, Pledge of Allegiance and the national anthem.

What a loaded question – especially in light of where the nation is presently. As a prophetic voice in the nation I am often asked that question, and it’s on the mind of everyone who lives here because the problems are on every front.
Some things are very obvious, like the rush towards redefining marriage, or the ineptness of the U.S. Congress to pass legislation. But other things are also in disrepair, one of them being the current state of disrepair of the physical infrastructure of the nation – see the sidebar. Continue reading Will America Be Restored?

I’ve been thinking about Creflo Dollar’s dream to upgrade his ailing jet for something better, much better, in fact. I hate to see this ‘man of God’ having to travel by way of a commercial airline, like the rest of us mere mortals.
Jesus borrowed a womb to be born, a boat to preach from, a donkey to ride on and a boy’s lunch to feed the multitude, not to mention a room for the Last Supper, etc. Aside from that, we are told “the Son of Man had nowhere to lay His head.”
But that was then and this is now! Continue reading How Creflo Dollar Can get a $65M Private Jet!

If you owned a pizza restaurant, would you serve a gay wedding?
I don’t own a pizza restaurant, and pizza is not currently allowed in my low-carb diet. But the burning question I’m asking myself in light of recent events in the United States is: “If a gay couple came into my shop and asked me to deliver 12 pepperoni-and-mushroom pizzas to their wedding, would I fill their order?”
I don’t have to think too hard to answer that. Of course I would serve the pizza. Continue reading Pepperoni, Cheese and the Gay Marriage Debate
By Mario Liu
In Australia, same-sex marriage is a controversial subject which causes much heated and emotional debates between its supporters and the Christians who oppose it.
In the Australian society there are many demonstrations and protests by activists who support same sex marriage. They are for freedom, equality, love, anti-discrimination, and progress. On the other hand many Christians believe that the Bible says homosexual behaviour is a sin. Many Christians are worried that, one issue at a time, the moral value of the society is gradually being eroded. Continue reading A Conflict Between Christians and Supporters of Gay Marriage

The Word of the Lord came to me in late November of 2014.
He simply said, “The Word of the Lord for 2015 is Psalm 127:1”.
Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.”
He then paused for a moment and said, “Tell her, (The Church), She had better get used to it, this is the way it is going to be”.
Lastly, He brought me before the image of the cross standing in the midst of the devastation of the World Trade Center after the events of 9/11/2001.

Many of you reading this have in the recent past entered into a higher level of spiritual reality and realization of dynamics of life in the Spirit realm. The sometimes frightening and always awesome relationship with the most powerful magnificent and glorious SPIRIT BEING, the FATHER of all creation, the LORD of all life, the Ancient of Days, is beyond word description. Neither the greatest words of human beings nor the most magnificent paintings of the greatest artist can describe the reality of the glory and majesty of ALMIGHTY GOD.
Some others of you reading this are on the edge of a cliff of “solid rock” belief in a distant God and Savior and are leaning forward to peer into what seems to be nebulous and unreal, too good to be true, spiritual air.

To see someone fully become the person they were created to be has to be one of the most beautiful and compelling things in the world. Yet it rarely happens.
There are lots of things that work against genuine character development and personal formation. Organised religion is definitely one of them.
Organised religion is not necessarily bad; it has always existed and probably always will. God may even use it to serve a purpose, but very same thing that gives life in one season can also bring death. Water can quench your thirst, but also take your last breath. The sun gives vitamin D but also skin cancer. The same food can provide energy and yet also heart disease. Continue reading 10 reasons why it might be time for you to stop going to church
