    I have been out trying to represent the LORD in street evangelism of sorts. One time I was out trying to witness and I found it had to do so becasue of the crowds. But a man sat beside me and blashphemed, using the name Jesus as a curse word. Instantly I turned to him, not me but the Holy Spirit, spoke out "You better respect that name for Jesus is coming", the Holy Spirit then cause me to stare upward at the sky, it was a sunny day, then I began to say "Jesus is coming back, soon", and you need to repent of your sins for God is a God of purity, not homosexuality or lust. I was interrupted by a police officer, and as I stopped speaking it began to pour with rain, when the sky had been clear.

    A second time I was out and wanted to try to prophecy, all that keep coming out of my mouth when I opened it was "Jesus is coming soon you had better get ready"

    I have also over the last few years had a few end time dreams that would suggest Jesus is coming back with in our generation, like almost too soon for most to cope with.

    Some of these dreams lead me to believe that before Jesus returns demons will mimic an alien invasion when they are released form the abyss onto the earth. I have just last night made a website about this at www.ufno.online

    Have you had end time dreams, visions, or visitations.

    If you think the LORD does not speak to us today you are deceived by Satan.

    I first was shown this (in part) many years ago ... when I first shared it with a school group ... they took paper from me & went out & showed others in the school plus reported back they had showed their parents & family & friends.

    I also did it on a busy side-walk in a country town. Within minutes I had people on their knees beside me ... "Let me do it!' they said.

    The power of multiplication is awesome -- if 5 tell 5 each & then the 30 tell 5 each within a few "cycles" it means that millions have heard the story AND people are watching the paper NOT you ... then they want to tell others ... many others.

    Keep copies with you at all times PLUS plenty of paper (or use a news paper/magazine)

    Print the following & make a few copies.

    If
    you need a miracle, ask for one …. and believe!

    Every behaviour is motivated by a belief and every action is prompted by an attitude

    How one tear of a piece of paper saved a man’s life and can save yours as well!

    Today, throughout the world, people are hurting and even killing others who do not believe as they do. In some countries it is prohibited to talk about other than what its leaders believe in.

    A man living in such a country was about to be executed for telling others what he believed in and for refusing to stop giving his message.

    He told them the simple Gospel, the Good News and that killing and hurting people was not from a loving God. He told them that Jesus, as the Son Of God came to earth to show man the way to Life with God, and that through His love for mankind and His death on the Cross and His resurrection, He paid for all of mankind’s wrongdoing and overcame death for man.

    On the evening before the man’s scheduled execution, a senior arresting soldier who had heard what the man had been telling the people, said to him,

    “You say that your Jesus loves you and will save you and that He will never leave you or forsake you.” “You say He died on the Cross for you.”

    As he handed the man a sheet of paper, he challenged him, “We will give your Jesus a chance to save you. If you can make a cross from that piece of paper by tearing it only once, we will release you!”

    The next morning the officer came with his armed guards ready to execute the man.

    Seeing the piece of paper on the floor of the cell, he laughed and said, “I see your Jesus has let you down!”

    “No He hasn’t”, replied the man. “He has told me what to do.”

    Using his right hand, he took the bottom corner of the sheet and carefully folded the bottom edge of the sheet to line up with the long edge. Then with his left hand, he took the point and folded it to line up with the previous crease. Keeping the point on the paper pointing towards him, he turned the folded paper over. With his right hand, creasing from the point to the top of the page, he folded the right hand edge to line up with the other edge. He then folded the right hand edge to line up with the left hand edge. He firmly creased the paper after each fold. He then carefully tore down the length of the folded paper, starting at the centre of the short edge.

    He selected the largest piece of torn paper and unfolded it to reveal a cross (a rugged cross).

    The officer and his guards watched in amazement. True to his word, the officer confirmed that because Jesus had enabled a cross to be made, he would free the man.

    As the man unfolded all the other pieces, he said, “You have heard the message of Salvation for all who believe in Jesus. He has now given me a message telling all who refuse to believe in Him where they will spend eternity.” He arranged the other pieces of paper to form the word “HELL”. As he then re-arranged the scraps of paper again, he said ”but Jesus has given us life and He wants you to have it”. He then made the word “LIFE” (the two slips of paper from H are placed on top of each other –two become one ) – Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE.

    As the officers and the guards read the word LIFE, they eagerly sought to know how they too could be saved.

    John 3:16-18 For God so greatly loved {and} dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

    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.]

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Make copies of these pages and keep them with some blank pages ready to share with others. This is an easy way you can go into the world and preach the (simple) Gospel.

    One way to introduce this to people is simply to say, “Would you like to hear a story?” or “Who wants to see a miracle?”

    After you have shared the story, the person(s) you have shared with usually will wish to fold and tear a piece of paper for themselves, so have some ready.

    Give them a copy of these pages.

    Children and teens are especially keen to share this with their family and friends (the term most frequently used when they see it is “awesome”.)

    Prov 3:5-6 Lean on, trust in, {and} be confident in the Lord with all your heart {and} mind and do not rely on your own insight {or} understanding.

    In all your ways know, recognize, {and} acknowledge Him and He will direct {and} make straight {and} plain your paths.

    Heb 13:5 …. for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you {nor} give you up {nor} leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless {nor} forsake {nor} let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]

    The man in our story knew that Jesus would not let Him down. As he waited in his jail cell he did not worry or frantically seek a way of avoiding execution. He simply trusted in the God Who loved him and promised to take care of him … and Jesus did not let him down. Jesus also used the circumstance to teach the guards that message.

    1. Father “organised” for the Christian (& armour clad) man to go to that country & location.

    2. He “organised” for the man to witness to the people (Rom 8:14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.)

    3. He “organised” for the police to be nearby & hear what was being said.
    4 He “organised” for one of the police to challenge the man, ““You say that your Jesus loves you and will save you and that He will never leave you or forsake you.” “You say He died on the Cross for
    1. you.” As he handed the man a sheet of paper, he challenged him, “We will give your Jesus a chance to save you. If you can make a cross from that piece of paper by tearing it only once, we will
      release you!”
    5. He “organised’ that the man understood what was required with the paper (the folding, tearing & arranging).

    6. He “organised” that the guards would see that Jesus was the only way to be kept out of Hell.

    7. He was true to His Word (Luke 4:18:19 .. He came to free the captives”)... the man sentenced to death.

    8. He ”organised” that the “Paper Cross & the story“ was easily shared with others ... even by young people.

    As a Pentecostal Church we operate the three voice gifts of the Holy Spirit at our formal
    worship meetings: diversities of tongues; interpretation; and prophesying.

    Jesus is telling us that we have run out of time and that soon, very soon tribulation and war will
    commence (hinting strongly that 2017 will be the start of this).
    We are encouraged by the Lord to build up our faith and to exercise the power of the Holy Spirit
    so as to have the strength to endure and to keep on witnessing to others.
    Last Tuesday night in the gift of Prophecy the Lord said that our testimonies and upholding of
    the gospel will be like lights in a dark world and that the unsaved will be drawn to us and believe
    because of our joy and peace while the world is being destroyed.

    Jude 20-21
    But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
    Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

    Satan and his horde give people what they want. The dark side plays many cards for different folks.
    Pride and false science for the "intelligentsia" who put their own learning above the wisdom of God.
    Pornography and licentiousness for all who want the freedom to be wicked and do anything that
    delights the flesh.
    Science fiction, aliens and all that for those who want to believe that there is somebody else out there
    more cleverer and more technologically advanced.
    Gambling, materialism and get rich schemes for those who only believe in you only get one life so
    make the most of it.
    Prosperity gospel for those christians foolish enough to forgo heavenly treasures for worldly baubles.

    You can add to the list as your wisdom and experience permits ...

    The New World Order (The Beast ... controlled by Satan) has been working on their "end time plan" since Pre- Napoleon when they finance him to invade Russia & they have been behind almost every "unrest" in the world ever since including the ISIS terrorists ..... they THINK they are going to be in control with a greatly reduced world population BUT Father has different plans.
    Check out " Bill Gates - Population Control" on the web ...BUT do not let your focus be drawn to watching/reading about the enemy's activities ... keep your eyes on Lord Jesus ... Who has authority over ALL things.
    We ARE in the end of the end times ... as a "stepping stone" to this, check out 23 September 2017 on the web BUT we MUST be ready .... there are warnings that will apply to many "believers" ... He will spew you out of His mouth OR say "Sorry I do not know you!"

    See John 14:23 & seek the Lord as to YOU meeting the requirements ... seek Him to reveal any "buried" un-forgiveness (If you haven't forgiven ... He can't forgive you Matt 6:15

    John 1:5 And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. .... but because of the continuous deceptions of Satan, the people prefer darkness .... BUT Father's pre-determined plan is that the pre-destined will be saved (See Rom 8:30)

    2 Thess 2:3 Let no one deceive {or} beguile you in any way, for that day (Lord Jesus' return) will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come], and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition),

    This is very evident today ... even mass false preaching in "churches" plus prosperity preaching, etc, etc.

    So, as said before ....keep your eyes on Lord Jesus ... Who has authority over ALL things.

    Keep being attached (resting) to the True Vine, producing His fruit ... for others to see & eat .... LET the LORD do it all ... stay in the Spirit (fully clad - Eph 6:10-17 plus intereceding IN THE SPIRIT Eph 6:18

    Please refer to my submission 5 above .... youth love to use this with other young people/adults .... when people see that miracles are instigated by God ... faith & belief are stirred.

    The woman who had an issue of blood for 12 years & had spent all she had on doctors etc. .... was totally cured in an instant because she believed .... how many people do you know desperately want to be well" ..
    Matt 8:17 And thus He fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, He Himself took [in order to carry away] our weaknesses {and} infirmities and bore away our diseases. ..... ask, believe & receive ... & be a light to the world!

    Look, all I asked was what you think of that scripture, not what you think of me.

    Can you answer the question?

    Edit:
    Also, if God is speaking through you divinely, the response you gave me does not seem very God like. Can you explain why God, through you, wouldn't speak to me and explain to me in a more loving manner?

    Next, would you entertain me in your thoughts on these two topics. Remember, I am not pushing you or twisting your arm to my belief. I am merely asking your thoughts on everything I say here. So there is no need to be judgmental, condescending, or intolerant of me. Just tell me what you think.

    This is the verse the LORD gave me this morning as I walked to work, I believe it is for you.

    In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people; your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on My servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

    Not only does god give us His Spirit in the last days he also gives us dreams, visions, and prophecy.

    You will note in Revelation that the two witnesses, both prophecy on God's behalf, and perform signs (burning up their opposition), if the gifts operate in such a powerful display in these two, why not in a lesser degree in God's other saints. If we are entering the end times the bible is very important, but so too are the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

    To finish Peter when quoting the above verse from Joel, stated, this gift is for you and all who are afar off, meaning all of us.

    :weary:
    Yet again, you have avoided my question. I am not trying to trap you or bash on you, I simply wish to see your take. Then, after you tell me, we can continue our conversation.

    As for what you posted here, maybe we can discuss this after our initial discussion as you have misused Revelation. I will explain after our first discussion, if you ever decided to proceed with it.

    When HE returns EVERYTHING will be complete and perfect as for NOW we only know in part, half the picture. We're still in our human body and cannot attain HIS perfection and knowledge FULLY, but when HE comes, 100% perfection and nothing else will matter.

    10 but when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away.

    The verse you quote refers to when Jesus returns, when he returns there is no need for revelation as there is no uncertainty in the future. While we are here on earth there is always uncertainty. As Jesus said of the disciples, now they need not fast as I am with them, but when the bride groom is taken from them in those days they will fast. When ever there is a time of darkness there is a need for fasting (I speak not only of physical fasting), a diligent search for God, so we have the bridegroom with us. A diligent search for God will always bring with it the light that is needed, if there is the darkness of sickness, the light will bring healing, if there is the darkness of uncertainty the light of prophecy would again bring us God's will.

    I have both healed the sick through Jesus name, and seen some prophecy taking place, both for future events, and current knowledge. In all of this I promote Christ and the bible, and let me be clear to you "No new revelation will ever be added to the bible, yes it is God's complete revelation".... but knowledge of what is to come is given to us corporately as God's children. And I would not be at all surprised if we are about to enter the great tribulation.

    My Gospel is not wrong. It is faith in the blood of Jesus to wash me clean of anything I have not yet fully overcome. I am saved by grace, yet I don't use grace as an excuse for the flesh. I strive for a pure heart before God. Yet I don't put hope even in that, but in Christ who justifies the ungodly. Yet as the bible says the righteous strives to move upward away from the corruptions of this world.

    Okay, so basically, you are saying "that which is perfect" is Jesus the Christ?

    So that when He comes for the second time, then miracles will cease?

    I just want to get a good, clear understanding that this is what you believe.

    Well, its not "your" gospel, it is Christs (John 1:1). Forgive me if I misinterpreted what you meant by that statement.

    All I was saying is you are not in context with the book of Revelation. Everything except the second coming of Christ has happened in Revelation.

    Some of the evidence I bring to you are as follows:

    The book is written around 95-96 AD as agreed upon by most all scholars and such.
    John is told to write this - Revelation 1:1= "Shortly come to pass" - Revelation 1:3 = "for the time is at hand" - Revelation 22:6 = "And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true.... to shew unto his servants...things which must shortly be done" - Revelation 22:10 = "Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand"

    These verses do not indicate 2,000 years into the future.

    Secondly, John in Revelation 1:9 says, "I John...your brother, and companion in tribulation"

    This tells us John states that a tribulation is already occurring upon Gods people. Acts is chalk full of the saints being heavily persecuted by the roman empire. See also secular writings like Josephus who eye witnessed the accounts of the Roman-Jewish War, and saw the atrocities that were prophesied. These persecutions were heavy until the collapse of the roman empire.

    In Eph 6:10-17 it instructs at we are to put on the Armour of God (His Holy Spirit), The breastplate is the breastplate of righteousness ..... repeatedly in these verses we are instructed to STAND (before Father) ... it is NOT our battle ... He is able to take care of all things & has the wisdom, knows all, is love, etc .SO THAT HE DOES IT THE BEST WAY.
    This instruction is clarified by Eph 6:18 when we are instructed (commanded) to intercede (in the Spirit)
    for ALL the saints ....
    Eph 6:18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose {and} perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people). ...... this means that we are joining with the Holy Spirit AND Lord Jesus in intercession (See Rom 8:27 & 34) ..... SO FATHER CAN DO IT ALL .... not us try & do God's job for Him.

    Early this morning I reflected on the fact that we are CHILDREN of God .... wholly dependent on Abba Father (daddy) .... He wants us to love Him, pray to Him, be protected by Him, sit on His knee .... & let Him do all!

    1 John 3:9 No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God's nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.

    1 John
    3:10 By this it is made clear who take their nature from God {and} are His children and who take their nature from the devil {and} are his children: no one who does not practice righteousness [who does not conform to God's will in purpose, thought, and action] is of God; neither is anyone who does not love his brother (his fellow believer in Christ)
