Be at Peace My Child!

By Robin Kirby Gatto



I hear the Father saying:


“Be at peace My child, and know that I AM doing a new thing, opening your eyes to that which has oppressed you in the past, giving you grace and authority to overcome the powers of darkness.


I AM the God Who is able, bringing you sufficiency with all grace, to overcome the works of the devil, as you press into the victory of wholeness and truth, giving to provide you a freedom beyond measure, bringing eternal life.


I AM the God of more than enough, and in your lean season, will bring you into the greatness of My Name, making My Name known, as you are overtaken with the harvest season, where the reaper overtakes the sower.


I AM bringing you the abundance of the harvest, as I reward those who diligently seek Me, giving them blessing upon blessing, and favor upon favor.


I AM the God of your breakthrough, causing you to enter the Victory of My Name, to know My Son as the King of Glory, the LORD Strong and Mighty in Battle!


I will open the eyes of your heart, delivering grace to your soul, causing you to run your race in greater fervency and expectation, to know the hope to which I have called you, where you will see by the Spirit of Prophecy into that which I have called you, yielding favor and abundance all around!


Do not lose hope or give into discouragement, but know that I AM coming swiftly in this hour, to answer your prayers.


Do not lose heart My Child and be patient, for soon you will have your reward.”






A saint crying out to God for fullness of deliverance and the manifestation of salvation.

Who Goes First?

By Robert Blackburn





The Tares!  The Angels who are the reapers will first bind up the tares and then cast them into the furnace.


I really didn’t want to get into this, but this subject was mentioned in a comment I received from someone today who doesn’t even know me.  It is a fact of Scripture rarely mentioned or even discussed.


Jesus said this.  His disciples often asked Him after He had preached or taught something to privately explain to them, just exactly what He was even talking about!


He had to continually open their understanding.  Even until He actually walked through a closed door into their midst after His rising from the grave, they didn’t get it.


The parable of the sower obviously held much deeper content than one would expect.  Some things are going to happen before The LORD returns, that will surprise those who are not aware, not listening and simply have not been listening.


We need to know what those things are.  We have some lamps that are empty.


I was reminded of this by the Word of a prophet here moments ago.  And the Prophets are going to start speaking again.  It is up to each one of us what we do with it.


You can repress it, blow it off, attempt to hinder or stop them but those who do so will fail.  Those with the “ear” who Jesus and the other writers, were talking about must listen and hear and they must help others to hear.  Nothing will stop it.


We have some things turned around.  It seemingly made no difference to us that the Apostles themselves said that False Teachers would arise.


We never dreamed they would be in the Church.  We simply did not pay attention that they also said False Brethren would come in among us and deceive many.


Likely because we refused to allow those who were chosen and gifted to teach and perform what the Holy Ghost intended for them to do, we received teaching that is quite wrong, as subtle as can be.


This planet we call Earth, belongs to God.  He designed and constructed every square inch of it.  Let someone please set the record straight once and for all.


The very idea that God is going to just sit back and let a fallen angel and his boys completely take over, run and destroy everything He created is a lie, it’s false, and it’s one of the most clever thoughts the schemer ever came up with.


Yes there are going to be some very hard and intense times, the earth is going to quake, mountains tumble into the sea, all of the signs we were told and the lights will go out but not one single moment before God decides.


The idea that one single person, at their own discretion, will push a button and blow up God’s planet is a fear tactic of the same slew foot.


It might happen, but not one millisecond before He has an angel take the man’s finger in His hand and does the deed.


Frankly speaking, the watered-down version, the basic powerlessness kind of teaching many of us were given has left us undernourished, full of malaise and terrible unprepared for what we are already facing.


For example, our focus was directed basically to the third of the angels and their leader who was cast out of Heaven.


We all know about it.  What was not stressed as God intended us to be taught, was that this meant that there were actually twice as many good angels as bad.


The flaw was that when we were flooded by the enemy and oppressed by what they can do, especially today, we can forget that we have twice as many holy angels of God to minister to us and help us in our fight.


It was never just between us and satan and his gang.  An entire host of heavenly beings were standing by our side to wage war against the other side and often defeat them before they ever even got to us!


The demonically engineered thought that Jesus Christ was coming back for a weak, wrinkled, slimmer version of what He set in motion before He left here, and saw acted out among His apostles and prophets, was cleverly slipped in by those false teachers we were taught, we had to listen to, without even questioning the things we knew were in error.


Clever, very clever.  There are and have been those among us, both ministers and saints who are as false, dead and twice plucked up by the roots as they can be, they always were.


And sadly, they have been joined by others who were once sincere and unwavering but have become complacent, excuse me but fat and playing to the in-crowd and are about like the man who said, “soul, take thine ease.”


Politics and who’s who allowed some to teach and speak that had and have no true spiritual depth, not to mention those who have been corrupted by money, power, elections and greed.


These are going first.  You must understand this: Jesus Christ is not coming back for a Church full of weeds, misfits, look-a-likes or false prophets and teachers.  Never!


Can you tell me what He would want with some of us.  We are so feeble, hard-hearted, full of jealousy and envy and strife, proud, arrogant and reeking from self-righteousness, do I go on, judgmental without cause, slapping doctrinal issues in peoples faces instead of healing them.


Pure demons are sitting in some of our services and nobody has the insight or the power to cast them out.


You’d think all of the devils stopped going to church by what you see and hear.  Well, they didn’t.  Some filthy human spirits are binding up services and hindering the flow of the Spirit among us and most don’t even see or know it, the gifts for knowing such things have been so suppressed.


No one can tell me that an evil presence is not more present today than ever before, and it’s likely that some of our people are actually helping them do their work, undetected, right under everyone’s nose, even right on the platform, singing and preaching with no more Spirit than someone who’s never even been to one of our services.


Don’t say I’m just judging.  That is another clever idea designed to hinder anyone from speaking out the truth about what is happening and has been happening among us for a long time now.


Please forgive me, but it reminds me of a statement I’ve heard once too often. “The Holy Ghost is a Gentleman.”


Yes, He is, but He can also be a killer.


The problem is that we have seen tons of people, like those two struck down in the door of the early Church, but because the Spirit in mercy and yearning for His people did not bring judgment speedily, we became sanctified, puffed-up gentleman and ladies who have truly forgotten He has been watching us and becoming more angry every day.


The mark of the beast is upon us.  We see it unfolding and we can no longer deny it, the world is shaking all around us.


Those who do not have the real thing, those who hide among us and strike and destroy God’s children and drive away His lambs are in for a rude awakening.


God is going to clean them out of His Church before Christ returns.  Read the scriptures for yourself.  I heard my father once preach that in the time of the harvest, the wheat bends over under the load of the fruit it is bearing.


The tare, that one that looks exactly just like wheat, but is not wheat, stands straight up tall, there is no true grain, no heavy burden, it is not wheat and it has simply become obvious to everyone.


When the heat is applied, it will burn first.  The harvest is here.  More and more, the tares are showing their true colors.


They are about to be removed from the LORD’s field.  The true ministers and saints of the most High God will not have to do anything. There are Angels who have been prepared well for the job.


With the world suffering, people starving to death, many who have nothing or so little, crushed and broken lambs of God that have been stomped down, driven out to die, signs appearing all around us and for anyone to yet declare that they and theirs alone have all the truth and everyone else is going to hell is maybe our greatest fallacy and because we were told that we had all the truth, we stopped seeking for Truth when absolutely no one has it all.


The Spirit is Truth.  God is a Spirit.  They who  worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.  Since when did we learn it all.


I urge all to listen to the Message here and not the unworthy, broken vessel that has been called out to proclaim it.


You must absolutely search the scriptures for yourself, let no one tell you otherwise or interfere with what the Spirit wants to do with you in this hour.


Remember this one other thing.  The Master once prepared a great banquet.


Those He invited first, the elite, those who had so much, all gave excuses for not appearing as they were summonsed to do.


I ask you to reflect what the Master did and never forget just who was sitting at His grand table in the end.

"Let Your Voice of Influence Be Heard!"

By Dr. Bruce Cook



"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke


We as disciples of Christ have a dual citizenship, according to Phil. 3:20: "But our citizenship is in Heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ." We are first of all citizens of Heaven, and second, citizens of the nation we live in or were born in. Our allegiance and loyalty are not only to the flag, laws, institutions, constitution, government, leaders and authorities of a nation, but to an eternal, invisible, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, sovereign and supreme God who created all life forms on the earth, who sees the hearts of all mankind, and who judges the living and the dead.


Called to Influence


It is clear by the Great Commission and many other Scriptures that we are called to be in the world but not of the world. We are commanded to disciple nations, to be salt, light and leaven to those around us, to love our neighbors as ourselves, to love in both word and deed, to provide for our families, to help minister to those around us who are in need, to visit the widows and orphans, to give to every good work as we are prospered, and to pray for kings, rulers and all those in authority (Matt. 5:13-16, Matt. 28:18-20; 1 Tim. 2:1-3).


So, we are not only in the world, but we are called to influence the world by reflecting and demonstrating the nature of the One who lives on the inside of us, and by being transformed into His image, likeness and nature.


One simple way that we can influence culture is to vote. This is one of the responsibilities and civic duties of citizens and citizenship, and is embodied in the Greek term Ecclesia, the called out ones, or the engaged ones—the ones who let their voices be heard in the public square, in forums on public policy, community standards and initiatives, school curriculum, candidates for public office, and other areas of public concern and interest. In the legislative district and state in which I live, some political races are decided by 100 votes or less. Every vote counts. The Church needs to exercise its authority and voice and vote in every election.


Is Your Voice Being Heard?


As I grow older, I am becoming more involved in the public square and the political arena. I have been involved in the marketplace for 50 years now in various capacities in several industries—as an employee, officer, executive, consultant, advisor, business owner, director, trustee, board member, and investor. I serve as a prelate for POTUS Shield and pray for President Trump, Vice President Pence, and their families, as well as Supreme Court nominees.


I have voted in every election since I was 18 years old. I ran for and won my first elected office in 2014 as a PCO (Precinct Committee Officer) in my county and legislative district, and have served continuously since then, winning re-election twice. Last spring I was appointed to the legislative district committee for my district by the county chairman of the political party I serve. I also was elected District Chair of my legislative district in December 2018 by the Republican PCOs in our district (Precinct Committee Officers). I am actively recruiting and vetting new PCOs at the moment for vacant precincts in our district in preparation for the 2020 election cycle.


During the last election cycle in 2018, I volunteered by praying, making candidate phone calls using sophisticated phone bank software, ringing doorbells and distributing candidate literature, raising funds for candidates, contributing financially to candidates, pounding yards signs for candidates at strategic locations and major road intersections, and attending candidate forums and political party events. I also serve as a member of the Washington Prayer Caucus Network.


I encourage each of you living in the U.S. to educate yourself on the local candidates seeking elected office in your legislative district and state, pray and ask the Holy Spirit for His will, and then vote in every primary and general election.


One of my friends, who is a corporate CEO, owns several businesses and pays a conservative lobbying firm to monitor all proposed and pending legislation in the legislative branch (Parliament) of government in their nation, and to advocate for and help sponsor legislation that reflects and embodies godly values and principles based on justice and righteousness and conservative values and tax policy. Other people I know are involved in shaping and influencing culture in a diverse and varied spectrum of exciting ways. The point is this: Don't be just a spectator or a victim of culture. Be an active participant in changing it for the better and making a positive difference in the world. Let the Holy Spirit lead you and seek counsel from others who are wiser and more experienced.


Jhn. 15:18-19 says, "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."

1 Cor. 5:9-10 states, "I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people; I did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with idolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world."


Finally, 1 Jhn. 2:15-17 notes, "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever."


Be in the world but not of the world. One simple and inexpensive but important way you can do that is to vote. Every vote counts. Conservative candidates need and deserve your support as the Ecclesia to govern and lead our society politically. Voting, and engagement with culture are part of our duty, our high calling, and our responsibility as citizens of our respective nations and of the Kingdom of God.
