Faith – it’s a word we have used and overused in our country, our churches, and our own personal lives. People have faith in many things; faith in people, systems, governments, sociologies, economies, and the big one for our somewhat humanistic generation: relationships. Social relationships are taught, sought and sometimes bought in our politically charged and socially driven generation of ambition seekers…. and this includes some in the general church population.

Who Ya Gonna Call (Pt. 7)
Stan shuffled his way through the lines, exited the grocery store, and returned home. The Chevy’s gas gage now edged to the left of the “E”. As he turned off the engine, Stan wondered whether the car would start again tomorrow with so little gas in the tank.
Christine and Natalie were wide awake on the sofa. “Stan! Where have you been? You’ve been gone for more than three hours …” It was then that Christine noticed the sparse amount of food Stan carried. “Simply to bring home some rice, bread, and beans? Stan, where in the world have you been? I’ve been worried about you. Our candles are getting low. And it’s really getting damp and cold in this apartment without any heat.” Continue reading
God Save Me!
You only have to look around you to see that things are coming apart in today’s world, quickly! Every day we read and hear things that are pointing to dire days ahead. Sometimes I don’t even recognize this country in which we live. One news article I read today said that the ‘new’ American dream was renting a home. Remember when the American dream was actually owning a home?
But that issue is minor compared to what’s happening in our world at large. Governments are being overturned. Israel is fighting for her life. People are calling good things evil, and calling evil things good. In the midst of all that, we are see another thing happening which, unfortunately, we sometimes become complacent about. We’re seeing a rise in natural disasters, freaky weather, terrorist attacks – any of these things could put us in a life-threatening situation in a matter of minutes.
You may say, “well Jim, hasn’t it always been that way?” The answer of course, is “yes.” But keep in mind that these things are increasing in frequency and intensity, just like the Bible says in Matthew 24. When you see the increase… that’s the time to act. When you see the ‘birth pains’ getting closer and closer, you can be sure that the baby is coming. You better get to the hospital!
Keep in mind that the people who were watching Noah build the Ark were scoffers. Why did they scoff? Why didn’t they act on the warning? They were busy with life as usual… building, marrying, partying. It’s a sad thing when people hear the warning sound, but decide to ignore it. It’s sadder still, when Christians disregard the Bible’s warnings.
Yet, these same people will be calling out to God for help when Times of Trouble come. Bill Whaley, a recent show guest that specializes in self-sufficiency and survival techniques using everyday ‘junk’ , said that the people who snub survival warnings are the same people who scream “God save me!” when things come apart.
Perhaps He will.
But God sent His Word ahead of these things so that those who are wise will prepare. I’m not the only one crying out with the warning. Many others are warning people as well. Even secular sources are warning people – so much so that the suppliers of emergency food and survival equipment can’t even begin to keep up with the demand.
Will you be one who prepares ahead of time when you see disaster coming? Or will you be the one praying “God save me!” If you’re prepared, you can help others. If you’re not prepared, you’re the one needing help. Don’t be a victim.
Don’t Fear What’s Ahead
Wars, global unrest, nuclear threats, looming economic disaster, earthquakes, solar storms, political upheavals, out-of-control inflation, famines, weird diseases… on and on it goes.
Who wouldn’t be afraid in today’s world?
Now I know that we should all walk by faith in these Last Days, and we should all know how to answer our fears with scriptures in the Bible. There’s a lot of teaching on this topic, but I want to speak to the human side of this before I tell you how to be strong in the ways of spiritual warfare.
In our humanity, we all need comfort and reassurance that God is not cold or indifferent to us when the Times of Trouble come. I think most of us know that, but it helps to recall that fact as the writer of Hebrews did in Chapter 11, the great ‘faith’ chapter. Go read this chapter again for your own encouragement.
Sometimes, it is good to recall all the times of your life when God has done amazing things for you. Recall the moment you were born again and how the love of God flooded your heart and soul. There is no greater miracle than that! One old-time spiritual song says, “makes me love everybody!” Now there’s a message in that for sure! But, be sure to recall all the other times you have felt God’s presence and remember His tenderness and His loving care.
For me, there are too many special times to count that God has spoken to me or answered a prayer breathed in earnest. But, I remember incomparable times like when He encouraged me when I was in a prison cell with an inspired song. Or, when He told me the prayers of the saints were flooding my cell with love and hope.
Remember, God will never, never, never leave us or forsake us!
World events may cause us to have a healthy fear of what is happening to our world, but we should never forget that all of it means that JESUS IS COMING SOON! When Jesus steps out on that cloud and we see His shining face, all of the troubles of this world will be over, and we will be with Him forever!
But, until then, we are told to “occupy” so we must live with a supernatural knowledge that we are indeed a chosen generation… one that will usher in the coming of Jesus. While this can be a time of great fear, it shouldn’t be for those who are working, watching, and waiting for His return.
There is a healthy fear and an unhealthy fear. A healthy fear reads the whole Bible, including the Revelation, and heeds its warnings. A healthy fear helps you to know that God’s Word is true, all of it, and we will have some Times of Trouble in the Last Days. And make no mistake, we are in the Last Days.
A healthy fear prepares both the spirit and the body to meet each and every situation we are faced with – with the maximum amount of faith. I am reminded of the three Hebrew children: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. We can recall how they refused to bow to King Nebuchadnezzar’s demands to worship him, and were thrown into the fiery furnace as a result.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego’s story is an example of great faith because they told Nebuchadnezzar that their God was not only able to deliver them from the fiery furnace, but that He would deliver them!
How many of us have enough faith to say “God, I know you can deliver us out of our troubles and I know that you will!”
In the natural, we are all afraid to some extent. But in the supernatural, we have the power of the Holy Spirit to give us strength and courage.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Tim 1:7, KJV)
With everything that’s happening in our world right now, it sometimes challenges our level of courage to live through it all without fear. But, that is exactly what Jesus said that we should do. In fact, He says it very clearly right in the middle of the scriptures that tell of these frightful events.
“When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened.” (Luke 21:9)
And just a few verses later, He repeats the admonition to be careful not to fear.
“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap.” (Luke 21:34)
Many say they are just not that strong – and they wonder how they can have faith in the face of fearful events. The answer is humility and a heart that reaches out to God in spite of a weakness.
Isaiah 40:29 says, “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
Have you ever heard the scripture “Lord, I believe. Help me now my unbelief.” (Mark 9:24) Perhaps we should understand this as “Lord, I have faith. Help me now with my fear.” A humble heart is something the Lord will not refuse. (Psalm 51:17)
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah” (Ps 46:1-3)
No matter what catastrophes may come on the earth in Times of Trouble, we should not fear!
Why is fear so hazardous to our spiritual life, especially in the Last Days? Why does the Lord caution us about fear? Fear is not just a distressing emotion; it is the spiritual force of Satan’s kingdom. Faith is the force of God’s kingdom. We are saved by faith, we are healed by faith, and we move mountains by faith. Fear is the opposite of faith. “And whatever is not of faith is sin” (Romans 14:23). It’s impossible to please God without faith. So, fear is a sin.
According to Revelation 21:8, the fearful will be cast into the lake of fire! Fear is that serious! Fear is called a spirit, and the Spirit of God within us should overcome the spirit of fear.
Whenever you notice fear in your life, you can overcome it by answering it with the Word of God.
Isaiah 41:13 “For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”
“I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27
So in the Times of Trouble ahead of us, do what you can to be ready. Do all that you know to prepare for any calamity. Then, cast the rest of your care upon the Lord and watch how he delivers His own people.
Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
2012 Arrives Amid Great Confusion
Here we go into a new year! This is not just any new year, but 2012, which I believe is a pivotal year in the “Beginning of Sorrows.” This year could be our last full year to get our houses in order. God has spoken to me that this will be a year of great CONFUSION in the world. God needs His Church to be in full force for what is coming!
These are the days of 2012, they have arrived with all the ominous warnings of ancient prophets, contemporary watchmen and Biblical prophecies of being prepared (spiritually and physically) for the months ahead. People have been talking about 2012 for centuries, and now it is upon us. We’re not on the precipice or the verge or the brink. We are there!
“What does it all mean? Can somebody please break it down?”
This week on your TV, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn and I will be discussing his new book, The Harbinger. You can also view these broadcasts in the Video Archive section of our website. I want everyone who can to tune in – this is one of the most important series I’ve ever done and I don’t want you to miss it. Time is very short and unless we are fully aware and spiritually tuned to prophetic events, even those who have been in the Church all their lives might miss the signposts of the most important time in the history of the world.
The word “harbinger” means a sign, omen, warning, herald of something to come. Rabbi Cahn unravels the prophetic events surrounding the great 9/11 calamity and warns us of what is coming next. He left most of us speechless with his teachings regarding the judgments of God upon this nation.
The World Trade Center bombing on 9/11 was a warning from God. That warning went unheeded, and for the most part, it was responded to with prideful defiance and a powerful denial of its purpose. Why does God send his judgment as a warning to a nation? It is for one reason and one reason only – so that they will repent, turn around, and honor Him.
I remember the outrage of the world and especially of some in the Christian community, when anyone dared suggest that perhaps God was warning this nation through the devastation of 9/11. “Why God wouldn’t do that! He’s a Good God!” Yes, God would and God did… BECAUSE He is good and He doesn’t want any to perish in their sin, not even one.
Though this nation was founded upon Godly principles, we have turned away from His ways and now we must turn back – or we will receive the full wages of our sins (Romans 6:23). I believe even at this eleventh hour, if we put 2 Chronicles 7:14 into radical action, we could stay the hand of God in His righteous judgment of this nation, and lessen the misery of the consequences of our rebellion.
“Then if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, if they will pray and seek me and stop their evil ways, I will hear them from heaven. I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.”
At this time, however, the prophetic clock is still ticking away and the events preceding the Second Coming of Jesus will happen (are happening), just as it says and is foretold in Matthew 24, Luke 21, countless other Old and New Testament passages, and especially in the Revelation. We are not going to change the prophetic unfolding of End Time events, but we can change what judgments are meted out and we have a choice how God deals with us individually and as a nation, based upon our responses to His warnings.
The economies and the governments of this nation and the world are falling apart, natural disasters are at an all-time high, and the whole of humanity is ready to plunge right into the doomsday scenario that is presented in the Book of Revelation. Food could disappear off grocery shelves in a matter of hours. Electricity and gasoline may be completely unavailable. The world is on the brink of World War III. Iran and Israel are poised to unleash weapons of mass destruction at each other, not to mention the U.S., Russia, China, and others. THE STAGE IS NOW SET for the arrival of the antichrist. We are on the very threshold of more calamity than the world has ever seen before.
The antichrist will use everything in his power to try to get Christians to deny Christ and renounce their faith. Some people think we, as Christians, won’t have to go through that part of the tribulation – that God will take us all out of here before it comes down to that. But what if He doesn’t? What if we are so dull in our spiritual senses that we’re like that proverbial frog in the pot – you back off a little at a time from God’s standards and before you know it, you’re in hot water. Could we even recognize our spiritual condition that has been so compromised with the world that it feels normal?
You can if you stay in God’s Word!
How then, should we try to live? When the world comes apart, people everywhere will flock to the churches for answers. There will be a last great awakening – a last great harvest of the ages. We need to have ourselves ready spiritually and physically, and be ready to show others our faith in Jesus, the One that purchased life eternal for us on the Cross over 2,000 years ago. That requires some practical preparations like food and water so that we will be able to minister the Gospel and help to bring souls into the Kingdom for all eternity.
As Christians, we sometimes forget that this life is but a vapor (James 4:14) and there’s an eternal life that quickly follows. Eternal means everlasting, unending, perpetual, endless, ceaseless, and timeless. That’s the life that God wants to spend with you, not just this life only.
You can’t go wrong serving God with all your heart, all your mind, all your strength.
Get into the Word! Know God’s Word! Be ready to recognize the enemy’s movement and his tactics. Know what righteousness is. “Be ye Holy as I am Holy!” (1 Peter 13-16) We have made far too much of ‘religion’ and far too little of ‘holiness’.
There will be a lot of people running “to and fro” in the church world too – Confusion – and that means in a spiritual sense as well as a natural sense. Don’t be confused. Know what God says! (2 Timothy 4:3)
Some might say “well, if it gets that difficult, I’d rather just go be with Jesus.” Do I need to remind you of Luke 12:47 or any of the other parables that deal with this kind of attitude? “And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes… for to whom much is given, much is required.”
You don’t have to store food, but it will be easier for you to avoid entering an antichrist system if you do. You don’t have to get as healthy as possible by eating right and exercising, but you can minister to more people in the Times of Trouble if you do. You don’t have to have survival plans and equipment, but what good are you to a dying world if you’re dead too?! “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” Matthew 9:37 NAS
There is also a dangerous philosophy of waiting until the last minute to get right with God and to get prepared – not only by the world but by Christians. The twinkling of an eye is not much time, people! It’s faster than you can snap your fingers!
So, get ready for the ride of your life! We are about to enter a time when you need to be rock solid about your priorities, and nothing will deter you or cause you to waver, or even be distracted. I’ve been telling people about the CONFUSION the enemy is going to throw at us this year. It will take all of our resolve and great faith, coupled with God’s Amazing Grace to get us through. If I could break it down to the simplest of terms, here is what I am endeavouring to do and I hope you will too:
- Get yourself still so you don’t have so many distractions
- Study your Bible
- Hear from God
- Do what God says!
Join us on TV this week too, if it’s at all possible. Rabbi Cahn will take our world’s events and break it all down for you. I’m confident this series of shows will leave you as speechless as it did all of us at Morningside when we taped them on Grace Street – but it will leave us more aware than ever before.
Be Prepared, Weather the Storms, Clean Up After the Storms
This past year has been a year of escalation in violent storms. In fact, records show that the number of thunderstorms, hail and tornadoes, has been rising rapidly for the last 30 years in this country. There were about 60 natural disasters worldwide in 1980, compared to 247 events last year — a record. (Source: The New York Times “Climatewire”).
Didn’t Jesus say they would increase in frequency and intensity like birth pains? Yes, He did!
Not long ago, the Lord gave me three instructions for the Revelation Days that we are in right now. I believe they are for others as well.
First, He said to “be prepared.”
Jim and I talk a lot about preparedness on the show. We know that preparation is essential for us and we are trying to help others get prepared as well. While we can only do our best, we understand that God is in control. However, we do not use that as an excuse to avoid doing what we can to survive. We will be as prepared as possible, while we trust God that His grace is sufficient for us. We hope you will too.
The second instruction was “weather the storms.”
There’s a lot packed into that little statement. While we can all get a good word picture from a ship tossed about on violent seas, weathering spiritual storms are just as important in these last days, and probably more so.
Have you noticed that the world is getting meaner, tougher, more violent, and just plain harsh? It seems the culture of every continent is eroding with wave after wave of hate-filled human activity. Movies, music and video games have degenerated into cesspools of violence and death. Systematic desensitization to death and violence has been a major strategy of the evil one to corrupt the minds and spirits of our children.
We truly are entering a time that the Bible refers to in 2 Tim 3:1-5 (KJV): “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
It’s going to take a lot of God within us in the Last Days to keep our hearts and minds right when all manner of evil may be unleashed towards God’s people. “Weathering the Storms” will most certainly mean weathering natural storms for which we can prepare by storing food and other essentials.
But, weathering the storms caused by an environment of wickedness can only be done by storing the Word of God within us. The Word of God is the only thing that will cleanse your spirit and keep your heart and mind pure… especially when evil comes at you from every direction.
In the scripture we often use regarding orphans and widows, it would do us well to read all the way to end: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27 NIV
The third thing the Lord spoke to me was to be ready to “clean up after the storm.”
When the Spring storms hit the middle of our nation, the devastation was so overwhelming that many people lost heart with the sheer immensity of it all. There was loss of life and property and the areas where the storms hit were beaten and bruised beyond description. The only way anything could be accomplished in the clean-up effort was a little at a time.
I watched as Jim and our teams went out to deliver food, water and other supplies to hurting people everywhere. Relief comes when someone provides supplies and extends a hand to help and does whatever is needed. The very beginning of restoration is cleanup.
Again, in the Last Days we need to be ready to minister to hurting people. The Bible says that the Last Days is the “Harvestime.” That means there will be a great harvest of souls coming into the Kingdom. We need to be ready to help people when devastation hits, because they are not going to listen to you about your God if you can’t bring some kind of relief to them.
What we do from now on is critical and has eternal significance. The Lord of Glory is about to return to set things in order, and we need to be looking for Him and listening to His Voice. “Be prepared, weather the storms, and then clean up after the storms.” That’s my instruction and I know there is love, care and concern from our Loving God in every word. I hope you can receive them, too.
When People Get Hungry
This may be the most important blog I’ve ever written. It’s been weighing heavy on my heart recently about why people should store food and water. It’s more than just about not going hungry, which pulls on the heartstrings. None of us want our families to go hungry. Most of us would do just about anything to keep our loved ones alive – to keep them from starving to death in a famine. Wouldn’t we?
But what are you willing to do to keep them from taking the “mark” and entering an Antichrist system which will eventually mean the loss of not only their lives, but their souls as well? …because that’s what it will come down to.
Are we thinking that in this country, we are going to be exempt from Matthew 24 – or that the Four Horses won’t gallop in our own backyard? How is it that we’ve been lulled to sleep and reassured by our Laodicean leaders?
The Times that are coming are not just about lack of food. The Times that are coming are going to be like none other ever before, when everything you need to survive is not available unless you are in the ‘system’, i.e. you have received the Antichrist’s mark.
Food, medications and medical care, housing, compensations, etc. – all of what we know as our current way of living could be used to force us to become involved in an Antichrist system unless we are prepared – that is, as prepared as we can possibly be.
There are going to be many methods by which the Antichrist will force his mark upon people. There is no Christian that I know who wants this mark, but will you take it if it means your family will have food? Will those you love be forced to take it to feed or shelter their families and care for their medical needs?
When someone you love says to you, “I don’t know what else to do – I guess I will have to take the mark in order to feed my family,” wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could tell them “you don’t have to do that, I have food for you!”
We do what we do because we believe with all our hearts that there are Times of Trouble coming – we will be here on this earth for at least part of that trouble – and if we are not prepared, some will succumb to those troubles and do whatever they have to do to survive including taking the Antichrist’s mark.
Let me be clear that this ‘mark’ is not well defined yet, and we are not attempting to define it. We are simply saying that you and your loved ones should not be forced into anything that doesn’t seem right to you – and the way to keep from it, is to be prepared.
Jim and I teach preparation and living healthy because that means you may be able help yourself and others to withstand a famine or some natural disaster (or combination of natural disasters) without becoming dependent on others, i.e. having to sign up with an Antichrist system.
That’s wisdom – I don’t care how you slice it.
Faithfulness Leads to Favor
I really can’t even tell you how much I respect and love Jim for the husband, father and Watchman that he is! What Jim does isn’t a popular thing! Warning people prophetically of the soon-coming troubles that we, as a church and as a nation, are going to face is not a welcome message. Yet, he does it. Why?
Well, his accusers sometimes say it’s for profit. Fearmongering is profitable, they say. Well, I’ll tell you how I see it:
- when the economy fails and people can’t buy food at any price without the Mark of the Beast
- when the trucks stop bringing in food supplies every day because of some natural disaster
- when the out-of-control weather causes crop failures and grain reserves are non-existent
- when the nation crumbles under the weight of its own debt
When all or just one of those things occur, and my children and I and all those around us have plenty of food to eat and good water to drink – I see it as a blessing of FAITHFULNESS! Faithfulness leads to favor!
Jim is not only getting us ready, he is getting people all over the world ready because he is faithful to preach the message of the Days of Revelation!
Why is it that people would much rather hear how things are going to turn around for the U.S. and how we are going to rebound? You know, the babble we hear from most of the newscasters and politicians today, and ahum… a great deal of the preachers too. But we cannot rely on what we hear from people – we must rely on what we hear from God in His Word! Matthew 24 is what we can rely on! The Revelation is what we can rely on!
Jim doesn’t preach for profit – Jim preaches because he dare not do anything else!
Jim recently preached a message on “Woe! Woe! Woe!” One of the scriptures he uses is 1 Cor 9:16:
“Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” NIV
A lot of people have made fun of us for preparing and teaching others to prepare, but we are not worried about those who mock. We are more concerned about having faith without works. The Bible tells us that faith without works is dead. We are all about hope, but hope has its roots in action. Faith without works is dead – it’s useless. Hope without preparation is pretty useless too. That’s why we prepare.
We want the favor of God – and because of that, we are faithful to preach the Gospel and to help people prepare for the Times of Trouble that are coming very, very soon to this country.
Monster May – Recap
I recently returned from a mission trip with my crew to several states where flooding and storms have caused death and destruction in the lives of many people. We are emotionally spent. You can’t look on that much human suffering without it taking its toll. Everything else that may be going on, pales in light of it.
I have seen other newscasters unable to speak or describe the scenes they were looking upon – it was all so overwhelming. We are doing what we can to alleviate some of the suffering. It will take the efforts of millions of people, organizations and especially churches to reach out with whatever they have to give – and everyone has something to give! Continue reading
Will We Go Through the Tribulation? (Pt. 3)
Believing and expecting the return of Jesus Christ is something most Christians can agree on, but the question that rankles the hearts and minds of many believers – and sometimes even divides Christians into separate camps and denominations – is the issue of whether believers will have to experience some or all of the rough times described in the book of Revelation and other prophetic Scriptures.
Basing their beliefs on information found in the Old Testament book of Daniel and the New Testament book of Revelation, conservative Bible scholars generally concur on the fact that the Great Tribulation will last a total of seven years. During that time the earth will undergo a horrendous time of chaos, including unparalleled earthquakes, floods, famines, pestilences, meteor strikes, and wars. Out of the chaos, rising on a platform of peace and security, will be the Antichrist, a powerful world leader under the direct control of Satan himself. The question is this: will Christians who are alive at that time (which I believe is coming upon us in the near future) escape the Tribulation, or will we have to go through part or all of it? Sincere Christians and intelligent Bible scholars can be found on both sides of the issue, holding to radically different opinions of just when Christ will come and when His church, the body of true believers, will be removed from Earth.
For many years I believed and preached adamantly that Christians would not be here to see the horrors of the Tribulation period. Admittedly, most of my thoughts on the matter were not original; nor were my views arrived at by years of studying the Scriptures and coming to biblically based conclusions. For the most part I simply believed what my mentors had taught, naively accepting their positions as absolute truth. When I continued to teach the things I had heard other sincere men and women of God proclaim – namely, that Jesus was coming back before the seven-year Tribulation, in an event we called the Rapture.

Excerpt from Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse
Published in 1998
