Living Epistles to the World

(2 Corinthians 3:2) Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
(2 Corinthians 3:3) Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

A mature Christian, a real Follower of Christ will be a living Epistle to the world. They will live their life by the faith of Christ.

(Galatians 2:20) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Hebrews 10:38) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

They will not add man’s wisdom, advice, talents or doctrines to this epistle of Christ.

Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness (1Cor 1:20-23)

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1Cor 2:14)

For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. (1Cor 2:2)

(Proverbs 30:5) Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Proverbs 30:6) Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

All the so called "good" that is done by the “wisdom” and doctrines men will be uprooted and will not be able to stand in the Day of Judgment.

(Matthew 15:9) But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Matthew 15:12) Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
(Matthew 15:13) But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

Let us not add to or take away from the Word of God. But live our life as the Epistle of Christ. (Matthew 4:4)…Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

(John 1:14) And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth.

(1 John 2:6) he that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk even as he walked.
(1 John 4:17) Herein is love made perfect with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as he is, even so are we in this world.

Visions and Dreams Showing things to Come

(Acts 2:17) And it shall be in the last days, saith God, I will pour forth of My Spirit upon all flesh: And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions, And your old men shall dream dreams:

Nevelle Hayes’ vision:

March 3rd, 2007 around 6pm the Lord gave me a vision. I had just turned the horses out after feeding them and started walking back to the house. The Lord told me to stop, put the bucket down and go out into the field.

The wind was very high at the time, gusting to around 30 mph or more. The Lord told me to walk to the north along the fence line close to the trees. I thought, that might not be good if a tree fell, but obeyed the Lord. As I walked close to the trees I could not feel the wind blowing but could still see it blowing hard out in the field. (I believe this means I could see what was happening in the West but I was not harmed by it) I walked until I reached the end of the field.

As I turned around to walk back and looked up into the southwestern sky and saw written there, September 12, 12:00.

Rosh HaShanah (The Jewish new year) falls on September 13th this year. NL believes the Lord was showing him this is the season that would mark the beginning of the end for America as we know it. He believes the date written in the "southwestern sky" was indicating California. Whether this could be the actual beginning of tribulation or a change that will lead up to it.

We believe the Lord is showing that a major change will begin to happen around that time that will eventually effect the rest of the world. As the Lord has not shown exactly what the events will be, anything else added to this would only be speculation.


Updated 7/16/07

I believe the Lord showed me the stock market will fall very fast and they will have to close it.

I see the elect of God from all over the world coming together in unity of spirit. Of course the "world" and it's church will know nothing of this.

I was given no date.

I revisited this post today (March 2, 2009) and thought how exact the Lord is. I was reminded of it again when I was looking at the 10yr. Dow Jones stock market chart today, I thought it would be good to add it here. It seems that was around the time our economy started its collapse. It is interesting that it began with news of unprecedented home foreclosures in the state of California……

Update: News article from 10-21-2009

MSNBC: The bust hits the boomtown that banks built

In California's Orange County, formerly the epicenter of subprime mortgage lending, the office vacancy rate stands at almost 17 percent.

There is a great conspiracy

There is a great conspiracy within the Church of Jesus Christ. It has been going on for as long as there has been flesh that refused to die.

Jesus said: If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's shall save it. (Mark 8:34,35)

In Mark Chapter 10 Jesus was explaining to a rich man that he needed to deny himself and take up his cross and follow him: (Mark 10:21) And Jesus looking upon him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
(Mark 10:22) But his countenance fell at the saying, and he went away sorrowful: for he was one that had great possessions.

The Great Conspiracy has changed the true Gospel to one that allows the flesh to live. The mind of the flesh does not want to die, it will reason it’s way into life. (Romans 8:7) because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be: (Romans 8:8) and they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

The true word of God makes the flesh uncomfortable; it wants to view God in a way that makes it “feel” better. The Conspiracy of the flesh says God loves everyone and will accept everyone.

But scripture says:

Even as it is written, Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.

So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that hath mercy.

For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, For this very purpose did I raise thee up, that I might show in thee my power, and that my name might be published abroad in all the earth.

So then he hath mercy on whom he will, and whom he will be hardeneth.

Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he still find fault? For who withstandeth his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why didst thou make me thus?

Or hath not the potter a right over the clay, from the same lump to make one part a vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?

What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering vessels of wrath fitted unto destruction: and that he might make known the riches of his glory upon vessels of mercy, which he afore prepared unto glory, (Romans 9:13-23)

When we read the Scriptures like these and do not feel easy about it, it is because we are wrong in our thinking. In this way, we can know if we have false doctrine and our mind needs to be renewed. There are many verses ignored by the modern church because they are uncomfortable to the carnal mind.

When we look at scriptures with our carnal mind and reasoning we will be like Paul said:
(2 Timothy 3:7) ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

(Romans 1:28) And even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up unto a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

In these last days the conspiracy has grown to such an extent that we now have what Paul warned about, and real Christians are looked on as heretics!
(2 Timothy 4:3) For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts;
(2 Timothy 4:4) and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.

People say “Christ lives in me” yet they have not denied themselves but are living lives that are pleasing to themselves. They are busy building wealth and retirement plans, keeping in style with the rest of the world as if this was their world. It is a hard statement but true, I didn’t say it, Jesus did, if we do not die to our life, Christ will not live in us! (Matthew 16:25) For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.

James warns: Ye adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore would be a friend of the world maketh himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4)

(Ephesians 4:17) This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk, in the vanity of their mind,
(Ephesians 4:18) being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart;

(1 John 2:15) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
(1 John 2:16) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vain glory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
(1 John 2:17) And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

The flesh does not like what has been said here. If it seems negative it is because the flesh does not want to die. But if the spirit is stronger in us than the flesh, this is a message of comfort.

(1 Corinthians 2:13) Which things also we speak, not in words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Spirit teacheth; combining spiritual things with spiritual words.
(1 Corinthians 2:14) Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged.

When we die to ourselves, it places all the responsibility on the Lord who loves us. (Galatians 2:20) I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.

We will not be ashamed at his coming because he will be manifested in us, praise God.

(1 John 2:28) And now, my little children, abide in him; that, if he shall be manifested, we may have boldness, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

Most of the “Christians” in the world today have no idea of who the real Jesus is. They even believe that the church is a place they go to, but the church is not a building. They are going the way of the wide gate. (Matthew 7:13) Enter ye in by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many are they that enter in thereby.(Matthew 7:14) For narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few are they that find it.

The wide gate is an easy gate. It is easy on the flesh. It is entertaining. It motivates the flesh to prosper. And most of all, it will not offend the sinner.
(Proverbs 14:12) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man; But the end thereof are the ways of death.

There is a great conspiracy; it is flesh ruling over the church of Jesus Christ in how it reads, understands and applies the Word of God.

This is the “other Gospel” that Paul warned about. It is the “other” Jesus. It is serving other Gods. It is time to come out from among her! (2 Corinthians 6:17) Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you,

This other Gospel says “we are royalty, we are the king’s kids, we will see to tribulation!”
This is the gospel of the flesh that refuses to die. Let’s see what Revelation says about that and what we are to do.

(Revelation 18:4) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, my people, out of her, that ye have no fellowship with her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues:
(Revelation 18:5) for her sins have reached even unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
(Revelation 18:6) Render unto her even as she rendered, and double unto her the double according to her works: in the cup which she mingled, mingle unto her double.
(Revelation 18:7) How much soever she glorified herself, and waxed wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall in no wise see mourning.

Now is the time to come out from among this worldly church and be ye separate! You need no one to teach you. You have the word of God available to you. Read and study it alone with the Holy Spirit. Separate yourself from any teaching or doctrine that is not in accordance with the things taught in the New Testament. The principles are clear there, they look NOTHING like the ways of the world.

The things that were sealed up in Daniel’s time are now being released for us today for we are at the time of the end! (Daniel 12:4) But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Seek and ye shall find, knock and it will be opened. If you ask the Lord for the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of truth) he will not give you a stone. The book has been opened up for you today like it has never been before. Pure understanding can be yours. God knows your heart, if anyone wants the truth and not a lie to ease the flesh, God will give the truth. If he sees you want the lie, that is what you will get. I pray you want the truth no matter were it takes you!

The Bees – signs of the times

(Hosea 4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children.

(Hosea 6:2) After two days will he revive us: on the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live before him.

(2 Peter 3:8) But forget not this one thing, beloved, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

(Exodus 19:11) and be ready against the third day; for the third day Jehovah will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

(Exodus 19:16) And it came to pass on the third day, when it was morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of a trumpet exceeding loud; and all the people that were in the camp trembled.

Exodus 19 has some types and shadows of Christ’s second coming on the “morning of the third day”. We are now in the “morning of the third day” It has been 2,000 years (2 days) since Christ’s first coming and have now entered into the beginning of the “3rd day” when “he will raise us up, and we shall live before him.”

I have found even the common bee is a sign for us in these last days.
For the last several weeks I have been reading news articles about the mysterious disappearances and deaths of honey bees. Here are a few of those articles.


The Bee speaks of the number 3

Here are some facts about “The Bee”,

In three days the egg of the queen is hatched.
It is fed for nine day (3x3).
It reaches maturity in 15 days (5x3).
The worker grub reaches maturity in 21 days (7x3).
And is at work three days after leaving its cell.
The drone matures in 24 days (8x3).
The bee is composed of three sections,-head and two stomachs.
The two eyes are made up of about 3,000 small eyes, each (like the cells of the comb) having six sides (2x3)
Underneath the body are six (2x3) wax scales with which the comb is made.
It has six (2x3) legs. Each leg is composed of three sections.
The foot is formed of three triangular sections.
The sting has nine (3x3) barbs on each side.

Is this design ? or is it chance ?

On July 6th of this past year I was stung 3 times by 3 yellow jackets, (also called bees). Click here for the testimony.
