Words cannot adequately describe what I saw and experienced, so I’ve been in much prayer about relaying this dream. Before reading, please ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart to receive whatever He wishes to minister to you individually. Read More>>
Although I’ve been a Christian since the age of 22, it wasn’t until 2008, while going through an especially trying time, that I asked God what He intended for my life. I told Him I wanted my life to give Him Glory, but didn’t see how it was making any difference at all for His kingdom. I asked Him to not hold anything back, I wanted it all – EVERYTHING – He intended for me, that I would do whatever He told me to do.
Two weeks later, during my quiet time with the Lord, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Clean your house and write.” In 2011, I started the blog http://themightyhandofgod.com/ as a place to write whatever the Lord inspires. I began having dreams and visions in the mid 90’s, mostly about things the Lord wanted to relay to me regarding personal issues. But the last few years, they have become almost exclusively about the times in which we live.
During the evening of November 23, 2015, I had a continuous string of dreams throughout the night of terrorists coming into churches and firing upon the congregations. The dreams were one after the other, with me waking up briefly between each dream. Each time, as I awakened, I heard myself praying fervently in the Spirit before losing consciousness again.

The Lord has given warning after warning for this nation to repent of her sins and turn back to Him. But instead, the rejection of God has grown stronger, with sin not only condoned, but now embraced. The weight of sin has forced God to remove his hand of protection from over our nation. Without His protective covering, the enemy will rush in to carry out his evil desires upon our land. A great shaking is coming to this world. Read More>>
Many years ago, when I first became a Christian, the denomination I belonged to believed the rapture would take place post tribulation. They believed all Christians alive on the earth at His second coming, along with those who’d died in Christ through the ages, would ascend, meet Him in the air, do a u-turn, and come back to earth for the millennial reign. I remember how we laughed at those who believed in a pre-tribulation rapture, those who believed in the “Great Escape.”
It wasn’t until a few years ago, when I did an in depth study of the subject, that my belief on the rapture was totally transformed. Although I now understand Jesus will come for the Church prior to the wrath of God being poured out on this world, God has shown me it will not be as many believers think. Quite a few Christians I know quickly dismiss the horrors happening around the globe, believing it’s something they’ll never have to contend with, and end any discussion of what may be coming with statements like, “Well, I believe Jesus will be taking us out of here before any of that happens.” I believe our brothers and sisters who are already going through intense tribulation in other parts of the world would disagree.
A little over a year ago, I began to sense things were beginning to move so quickly that, if Jesus didn’t come for His Church soon, the Church would indeed be here through some very tough times. Knowing that before Jesus comes for His glorious Church, a great awakening is to occur, was beginning to confuse me. Read More>>
If you’ve listened to the news recently, you’ve probably heard a lot of talk about the “Blood Moons.” I know when I first heard the term, I paid no attention whatsoever. But as I heard it talked about more and more, I quickly learned the term didn’t come from religious extremists spouting some fanatical theory, but is actually a term originally coined “Blood-Red Moon” by NASA. A Blood Moon is the total eclipse of the moon and happens when the earth comes in a straight line between the moon and the sun. All the solar rays are blocked, and as the sun shines through the Earth’s atmosphere, a red shadow is cast on the surface of the moon.
Most of us have likely seen a partial lunar eclipse, because they happen every once in a while. But TOTAL lunar eclipses are rare, with only 4 to 5 TOTAL eclipses appearing any place on Earth in a decade. But a lunar tetrad is even more rare.
A lunar tetrad is a series of four TOTAL lunar eclipses in a row with intervals of 6 months in between. They’re so rare that the 21st century (from 2001 to 2100) will only have 8 tetrads. And there were absolutely no tetrads in the 1600’s, the 1700’s, or the 1800’s! But what’s making the tetrad we’re in the midst of right now of such importance is the fact that each of the eclipses are occurring on a “Moed” (appointed time) of God’s Sacred Calendar. This has only happened eight times since the time of Jesus. In addition to the series occurring now, there have only been three others within the last 500 years! There are several reasons the lunar tetrads landing on God’s sacred calendar dates should demand our attention. Continue reading “What Do the Blood Moons Mean to You?”
Watching what’s happening in our world today can be very discouraging and downright scary. But feeling helpless, thinking there’s nothing we can do about it, makes it even worse. As Christians, we’re not supposed to just sit there. Jesus has given us our marching orders – and there’s plenty to do!
As a Christian, YOU Can Make a Difference!
Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” He said we are not to be hidden, but put on a stand – to give light to everyone. “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matt. 5:14-16). As the world around us grows darker, the Light within and flowing from us will appear brighter and brighter to the world – just as light emanating from a flashlight isn’t visible until it’s placed in a dark room. I believe a time is coming when those terrified by the darkness will come running towards the Light! Continue reading “Don’t Just Sit There – Do Something!”
Have you wondered about the increased persecution of Christians taking place around the globe? What’s with this urgent need to silence their voice? Even the mention of Jesus’ name can get you locked up or executed in many countries. In the United States, chaplains in our military are now being told not to pray in the name of Jesus. In our schools and other public forums, the name of Jesus is no longer welcome. What’s happening? What is it about Jesus that scares this world so?
If you listen to Jesus’ message, it becomes abundantly clear who should be frightened by it, and why they’re trembling in their boots right now. Continue reading “What’s So Scary About the Message of Jesus?”
Have you ever thought about what makes a Christian dangerous to the devil? It’s the Word of God in their heart! Satan knows that Word can stop him dead in his tracks and thwart all his plans. So what is the tactic Satan always uses against the Christian?
The favorite tool of the devil is Distraction. If he can create a diversion of some sort, enough to get your eyes off that Word and focused elsewhere, he can go in and steal the Word, uproot it right out of your heart before it has time to take root. Continue reading “How Dangerous Are You?”
While getting ready for work one morning, I was listening to a minister on TV as he talked about Jesus’ admonition to Martha. Jesus was speaking words of life to those gathered around, while Martha was consumed with the preparation of the meal. She was upset that her sister Mary wasn’t helping. Instead, Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to His every word. But when Martha asked Jesus to have Mary come help her, Jesus said, “Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” The minister’s question was, “What if Martha had also chosen to sit and listen to Jesus? Who would have provided dinner for the group?” The minister maintained they could have eaten from the banquet table of heaven – just like the feeding of the five thousand. Now that is totally out there, and completely foreign to our humanly way of thinking.
But if you think about it, most of what Jesus said is foreign to our way of thinking. Were we to really believe what Jesus said, and live as Jesus lived, we’d appear as aliens to the world around us!
If you’ve ever seen an episode of the ‘Mork and Mindy’ show, it’s similar to the dilemma in which a true Christian finds himself. Mork was from another planet, and in order to function on the Earth, his old way of thinking and doing had to change. The entire series was about him adapting to the earth’s way of doing things, just so people wouldn’t know he was an alien. Although there are similarities between Mork’s situation and that of a Christian, there are vast differences.
Mork was told to conform and fit in with this world, Christians are told not to do so. Continue reading “I’m An Alien!”
God has given us all we need. Everything to do with our salvation has already been provided; it’s a finished work. As Jesus’ followers, we’re to stand in the victory he’s already won. Yes, Satan is still roaming about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour – until he’s deposed at Christ’s return. But when he comes across a Holy Spirit filled believer, one that skillfully uses his God-given weapons, he’ll flee like the cowardly, toothless, pretend-lion that he is.
