“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; leave Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

No way to talk but one...
No way to communicate but one...
Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight,
He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
It was common knowledge among the disciples that they would find Jesus praying during the early morning hours. When they needed Him, they knew to go to the place of prayer. When Judas betrayed Jesus, he led his cohorts to Jesus’ place of prayer.
Every time the Lord Jesus faced an important decision, He prayed. When He was being tempted to do things by the world's methods instead of the Father's, He prayed (Matt. 4). When it was time to choose His disciples, He prayed the entire night (Luke 6:12). If the Son of God required a night of prayer in order to determine the Father's mind, how long might it take us in prayer to clearly determine our Father's will?
Because Jesus was so often surrounded by crowds, He knew He must find a quiet place so He could clearly hear His Father's voice. Jesus had many people seeking to influence the direction of His life. His disciples wanted Him to go where the crowds were (Mark 1:37). The crowds wanted to crown Him king (John 6:15). Satan tempted Him to make compromises in order to draw a following (Matt. 4:3, 6, 9). Jesus knew that His mission was not to attract a crowd, but to remain obedient to His Father. It was prayer that set the agenda for Jesus’ ministry (Luke 6:12). Prayer preceded the miracles (John 11:42–43); prayer brought Him encouragement at critical moments (Luke 9:28–31); prayer enabled Him to go to the cross (Luke 22:41–42); and prayer kept Him there despite excruciating pain (Luke 23:46). Follow the Savior's example, and let your time alone with God, in prayer, set the agenda for your life. - Blackaby Experiencing God Day by Day
My friends, Dear Readers, the day is fast approaching whereby it's simply a matter of time before I won't be permitted to post anymore on Facebook and possibly even here. Big Tech is shutting down sites and avenues that lead to the truth. You are already only reading censored, approved, media reports. What once were trusted news outlets are nothing more than pawns in governmental control.
That being said I will press on regardless. Until I am shut down I will continue with whatever God tells me that I am to write.
Jesus said HE is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Not Him, by way of a Government censor.
Prayer is the only means left to communicate to the world in a way that censors cannot stop. It's a sad joke that it makes political parties mad when Christians store up their treasures in Heaven where it can't be appropriated or stolen.
Prayer began Jesus's day, every day.
Does it begin yours?
Finding out only through prayer what the Father's business was, was Jesus's only avenue. Ever consider that?
Jesus had laid aside all His main attributes to come to Earth to save mankind. One of those attributes was 100% communion with His Father. Always knowing all the time what His Father was thinking.
That's why Jesus said that which He did about only the Father knowing the day and the hour of the Rapture of the Church. The Father had made that decision apart from Jesus and kept Him out of that loop. Of course NOW Jesus knows. But while on Earth He didn't.
Our lives are going to get more and more censored. Wake up and smell that smell of freedom dying. Our only mode of uncensored speech will be to the Father through Jesus. That's it.
You will not be able to trust, nor have you for years now, what any popular news agency puts out as news. The mainstream media is only telling you what they are told to tell you. It's a war as to who will or will not share information.
When my Wife and I have prayed, God says two things...very soon as to His return and to wait...the truth has yet to be revealed about the political incidents of late.
My friend, be sure that you are right about Jesus. Read this: Matthew 7:15-23 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits.
Are you a doer or someone who says they are but in reality does nothing?
It grieves me to watch Christian people mock, ridicule, make fun of others purportedly in the name of fun. Oh the Scriptures don't apply to your worldly humor? Prove it.
My friend, Dear Reader, make sure you haven't been making excuses, putting off living for Jesus til 'later'.
The parable of the virgins should be a loud wake up call to all. Half were prudent and ready for the return of Christ, half were not...and were left outside when Christ came calling. All thought they were saved.
All thought they were saved.
Read that again.
All thought they were saved.
Be sure! Right here right now!
I am so listening for the shout that will call Christians out of this world. As I had read of the early Church, used to be when believers traveled, if they came across an intersection they indeed looked both ways. But not for why you think. They did to see if Jesus was coming in either of those directions. They daily anticipated Christ's return.
Do you? In your prayers are you praying for His quick return? In your life are you listening for the shout from Jesus to "COME!". Is your walk with Jesus so lacking that it's really a second thought not your main thought in life? Is your walk with Jesus an afterthought?
Look at your prayer life. That says all you need to know. Why is there so much unrest? Where are the righteous praying people? If the prayer of a righteous man avails much, we are seeing the fruits of a lack of righteous people!
You are about out of time. We all are. There's an undetermined amount of time between now and the Rapture. Then 1007 years later all you see will be obliterated. This is the predetermined Plan of God.
There is going to be 7 years of Hell on Earth through the judgments of God. Then the world will see what living with Jesus as the World Ruler is like for 1,000 years.
Are you ready? In spite of censorship I will be like Daniel. Praying for my sins, the sins of my people and nation.
