"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

GETTING 20/20 SPIRITUAL VISION: A SIGHT For SORE EYES – PART 2 of 2


~ By James Fire

For Part One of this Two Part series, go here.

Once again, PROVERBS 29:18 states,
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Breaking down the meaning of this verse from the Hebrew, it speaks of where there is no vision (oracle, prophecy, divine communication, revelation) the people perish (to show a lack of restraint, loose restraints, set at naught, perish).
Plainly, where GOD’s divine communication is not heeded, when it’s disobeyed, when the truth of GOD is disregarded so that there are no moral boundaries and safeguards, then the people will cast off any restraint, and all that they do will come to nothing, they and their works will perish.
Godly leadership requires godly vision, both seen and understood as well as obeyed. They need to extol, to glorify GOD and admonish others to do the same, and if there is lack of godly leadership, be it in the home, the community, the church - then it will result in a free-for-all of chaotic revolt and relativism:
JUDGES 17:6
In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes
(See also JUDGES 21:25).

The Comprehensive Plan To Implement Global Governance In Our World by Geri Ungurean

TODAY WE HAVE A SPECIAL GUEST WRITER, Geri Ungurean, writer and researcher whose website is chock full of edifying and eye opening articles.

This article is re-published by permission, unedited and unabridged.

Without further ado, here is Geri's report on something that will likely prove to be a paradigm shift - an altering of the world as we know it, bringing about lasting and disturbing changes that will further enhance globalism and prepare for the coming One World Ruler that the Bible identifies as The BEAST of REVELATION, the Anti-christ. This article is not sensational in any way, but factual and accurate in the trends and objectives that the Globalists are seeking (and by and large are succeeding) to obtain. Here is Geri's report:

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTY SIX


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

Chuck Missler Bible Commentary - Genesis 32-36 (Part 2)

GENESIS 36 – by Albert Lopez; to watch this teaching on Facebook video, go here.

Introduction:  It’s strange to be away from the fellowship and instead of seeing God’s precious flock in person, we are having to fellowship through live video [Due to the mayoral directive regarding coronavirus, 3/18/2020]. I pray that as Pastor James and Pastor Sonny have pointed out to us through the Word, which I pray made us think that whatever is happening, may be used to drive out false and dead worship to our True and Living God. Maybe this is a way that The Lord as Pastor James put it will set us aside individually and collectively through prayer to show us what it means to W.A.T.C.H. and pray that we don’t fall into temptation and desperation during these times and what is to come.

The TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – Chapter ELEVEN



~ by James Fire

Introduction: GOD is never without a witness. Even through the most evil epochs and days of dire darkness, the LORD GOD is never without a witness to testify of His truth, to stand against the evil deceptions, lies and sin that pervades this world.
These witnesses, these godly saints, these bold martyrs like our LORD Himself, testify of the evil of this world, and for that both He and we ourselves are hated (
JOHN 7:7). I think of Enoch and Noah, of Moses and Elijah, Jeremiah and Daniel, of Stephen (in ACTS 7) and the apostle John on the isle of Patmos.

The testimony of the truth is far more, however, than just the witness of the evil in this world; it is also the declaration of GOD’s holiness and truth, and the proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ, either in the foretelling in the Old Testament Scriptures, or in the New Testament declarations of what the LAMB of GOD (JOHN 1:29) has accomplished and will accomplish as the LION of JUDAH (REV 5:5-6) as proclaimed in both Testaments.
And these declarations are not just words of truth, they are backed by the power of GOD in the miraculous as demonstrated by the LORD and His prophets and apostles (JOHN 5:36; EXOD. 4:30; 1 KINGS 18:37-39; ACTS 9:36-39; ACTS 20:9) – and these famously faithful two witnesses we’ll be reading about in this chapter.

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTY FIVE


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire



GENESIS 35 – by James Fire; to watch this teaching on Facebook video, go here.

Introduction: There is no disciple of Christ that goes from the beginning of spiritual rebirth and right into complete sanctification. In fact, there is no disciple who ever reaches complete sanctification during this lifetime; Paul the apostle himself said that even he did not attain perfection (PHIL 3:12). However, we’ll know absolute and complete sanctification when the LORD returns, and we are miraculously transformed at the rapture of the church (1 COR 15:51; 1 JOHN 3:2).

GETTING 20/20 SPIRITUAL VISION: A SIGHT For SORE EYES – PART 1 of 2


~ By James Fire

PROVERBS 29:18 states,
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Recently, in the first week of March, 2020, I attended a Pastors/Leadership Conference in Tucson, AZ (you can watch these teachings online here), and the theme was about getting the vision of GOD with clarity – 20/20 vision as it were. It was a tremendous blessing not only to receive the edification and teaching of these various pastors, but also to fellowship with the saints and worship of the LORD together as His bride.
Moses was the subject used for this study, and various passages from EXODUS, NUMBERS and JOSHUA were the texts used in “VISON THROUGH THE LIFE OF MOSES”. After learning about the vision that GOD gave to the Lawgiver of Israel, and to other saints in the Bible I’ve many things to share myself which I will share in Part 2.
First an overview from the first two of these teachers (links to the others are provided at the end of Part 1:

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTY FOUR


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

Chuck Smith Bible Commentary - GENESIS 34

GENESIS 34 – by Albert Lopez
Introduction: In GENESIS 33 Jacob just left Uncle Laban’s house, then Jacob and Esau Meet; God had promised Jacob that he would return in peace to his father's house. As doubt did its job Jacob's mind probably started to think of all the bad that was going to happen to him and his family. As he gets closer to home he is experiencing dread because of Esau
We will shortly read in GENESIS 34 and think this is the same fear and awareness that Dinah should have had. Just like Jacob was aware that he could be destroyed by Esau. There should have been some warning to Dinah of the dangers in the land that could destroy or harm her. It all starts very innocently.
A decision was made by someone who was not thinking about the decision she was making!

GENESIS 34:1-2
1
Now Dinah [meaning Judged, Vindicated, Acquitted] the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. 2 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her and lay with her, and violated her.

Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

Chuck Smith Bible Commentary - Genesis 33

GENESIS 33 – by James Fire; for the Facebook video, go here

Introduction: Jacob has left his Uncle Laban’s house and any potential threat his Uncle might have posed, with the vision and promise of GOD Himself that he would be returned to his own land, that the LORD will bless and keep him in the land promised to him, to Isaac and to Abraham, and that his descendants will be as the sands of the Earth (GEN 28:13-16). And as he draws near to his father’s land, ever nearer to his elder brother who wanted his revenge, he is experiencing dread.

In his distress he met an angel, actually a Theophany – an Old Testament appearance of the LORD Jesus Christ. They wrestle all night long and when the LORD asks to be let go, Jacob refuses and insists to be blessed.

The LORD asks him his name and he tells Him: Jacob (“heel catcher, supplanter, deceiver”) and the LORD declares that this will no longer be his name, but Israel (“prince of GOD”) because he prevailed [in prayer]. When we wrestle with the LORD, it’s not to overcome a foe, but to receive from Someone something we could not receive by ourselves. Wrestling is a struggle, and for those whose hearts are not in it, it’s a struggle that will end in defeat. The LORD longs to ‘lose to us’ in the sense that though He bears long with us (LUKE 18:7), He intends to see us win this wrestling match and receive His holy will, His holy blessing, His holy answers.

PORTALS - A Special Presentation on TTUF by Lambert Dolphin

~ By Lambert Dolphin

PSALM 24
The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.

The universe is full of portals, and gates into other dimensions. These gates lead into secret gardens and hidden chambers. The gardens are for the intimates of God, and not to be seen with telescopes or space radars! Access to these hidden splendors is only through Jesus.

GENESIS 32 – by Sonny Islas. For the Facebook video teaching, go here.
Introduction: In Genesis 31 Jacob and Laban make a deal to not harm one another anymore. Laban kisses his daughters and grandchildren goodbye so that Jacob could continue his journey back home to Canaan. But there is yet another very serious problem ahead, Jacob’s brother Esau whom Jacob had tricked and deceived – by taking both Esau’s birthright and blessing might still be angry (bad blood). Jacob was afraid for his life because he remembered Esau’s death threats recorded in Genesis 27:41,42.

The TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – Chapter TEN



~ by James Fire

Introduction: Whenever the judgment of GOD fell upon Israel, it was only after a long duration of warning and pleading through the prophets, for the people to repent and turn from their wicked ways, and the LORD in His infinite mercy would relent of the judgment He was prepared to execute, spare His people and restore His blessings to them (DEUT. 28 and 29; 2 CHRON 7:14; ISAIAH 1:2-18). GOD sprints to show His mercy but drags His feet when He must bring judgment. When once judgment falls, it’s a hard and unbearable burden that people long to be relieved from, and most often it isn’t relieved because of their obstinance and unwillingness to repent and turn to the LORD. Yet judgment in this world knows a termination point, when the full wrath is spent and over with. In the world to come, judgment and wrath will endure eternally for those who find themselves condemned at the Great White Throne Judgment (REV 20:11-15).

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTY ONE


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

GENESIS 31 – by James Fire

Introduction: It’s a good thing that the LORD doesn’t treat us the way that we, at times, treat others; because we’re not always as fair and faithful to family and friends as we ought to be, but the LORD is ever faithful and far, far more than fair to us.
There are, however, times when we need to learn valuable lessons in relationships, and so the LORD will deal out to us the same sort of treatment that we deal out to those around us. It’s the same idea as judging – the LORD will judge us with the same standard that we judge others by (MATT 7:1-2). Which is why we should always be merciful, kind, gracious and generous towards others, so that we may reflect our LORD’s character for one; and also that we may receive such blessedness ourselves.

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTY


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire
GENESIS 30 – Sonny Islas - to watch the Facebook video of this teaching, click here.

BIGAMY, RIVALRY, TRICKERY AND SUPERSTITION

Introduction: Another way to title this message is Sin, Sin, sin and Sin.

Before we read Genesis 30, I’d like to back track just a bit. In Genesis 29, we find that one of Jacob’s two wives named Leah was unloved, while Rachel was loved. Because of this sad situation, the LORD (who loved Leah and Rachel equally) opens Leah’s womb while keeping Rachel’s barren in order to comfort Leah. (We learn a lesson here: When those closest to use fail to love us, the LORD’s love never fails.)

Here’s a very interesting fact:

Leah the unloved wife gave birth to Levi and Judah. Moses and John the Baptist come from the Tribe of Levi. King David and The King of kings – Jesus the Messiah comes from the Tribe of Judah. So, Leah the unloved is the great grandmother of the God man!  
Rachel the preferred one, gives birth to Benjamin down the road, some more about him in chapter 35. King Saul and the greatest Apostle, in my estimation, the Apostle Paul comes from the tribe of Benjamin.

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter TWENTY NINE



Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

GENESIS 29 – by James Fire

Introduction: It was Samuel Clemens, more popularly known as the gifted writer and speaker, Mark Twain who said,
“History doesn’t really repeat itself. . . but it does rhyme!
And so we see here that Jacob is traveling the same familiar ground that Eliezer traveled when he returned to Abraham’s homeland in search for a suitable bride for Isaac. And remember the wonderful type we have there in GENESIS 24 where Abraham – a type of our Father GOD, sends Eliezer, a type of the Holy Spirit to his homeland in search for a suitable bride for his son, Isaac, a type of Christ, son of the Father – and the bride Rebekah is then a type of the church, the bride of Christ. Indeed, the Spirit of the LORD, sent by the Father throughout the world, leads those who become the church of born-again believers to Christ where they find eternal life and are a suitable bride for Christ!
Here Jacob is running away from the consequences of his deeds done that involved deceiving his father, obeying his scheming mother, supplanting his brother Esau (the very name Jacob means “supplanter, heel-catcher [which he did when he was born, catching the heel of Esau!]) in receiving that which GOD had promised already at the birth of these twin sons (GEN 25:23). Now in Chapter 29 we are going to witness some ‘pay back’ in one sense, but in another sense, the fulfillment of the biblical principle of “reaping what we sow” (GAL 6:7).

BEING A RESTORER, REPAIRER, A TRUE SERVANT and SHEPHERD OVER GOD’s SHEEP

~ By James Fire 

For the Facebook video version of this teaching, follow this link to: TRUE PASTORS are TRUE SERVANTS

ISAIAH 58:6-14 
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
Isaiah’s ministry was a time in Israel’s history when there was a great divide between the Jewish people – the very affluent who could afford ‘summer homes’ along with other residences, and the very poor who could barely afford an existence lived in squalor; their ‘middle class’ instead of composing of the majority of the population, was a minority. The rich and powerful were in charge and guilty of oppressing the unfortunate while at the same time, expressing religious devotion to GOD, what with the rituals in Judaism and fasting.

The LORD here is rebuking such behavior and expressing His desire for the fast of His choosing and true service to our fellow man…

Here in America, our churches are prosperous – we have multi-media by skilled and polished personnel, sophisticated sound systems, plush, air conditioned sanctuaries, myriads of ministries, competitive wage salaries for professional, seminary-trained pastors, high-powered power point presentations centered around feel-good messages – and for all of that, what God’s people are given are philosophies and theology of men, not the bread of life, God’s Word – not the living waters, but muddy water from broken cisterns!

And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughers of Laban thy mother's brother. And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham. And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother

The RETURN of the LANDLORD - by Lambert Dolphin

~~ by Lambert Dolphin

My favorite men's group, the Wednesday Brothers of Thunder, is a leaderless core group which meets weekly for an hour of Bible study and an hour of prayer. We stay leaderless because we expect the Lord Jesus Christ to come and take charge of things, and the fact that He does so has been our experience year after year. God always shows up and surprises us with His insights and the spiritual refreshment of our lives.
The responsibility for coordinating the weekly meeting rotates around the room. So it was recently that my friend Mike McKenna found himself opening to us the eleventh chapter of Luke. Mike, and two other brothers in the group, had grown up in the Roman Catholic Church so they knew the Lord's Prayer (the "Our Father") backwards and forwards. Mike admitted his discomfort in stopping to think through this prayer--he told us (in jest) that the text printed in red was "evidently optional and could be omitted because it made the whole chapter much easier to accept."

GENESIS 27 – PT. 1 – JACOB SCAMS ISAAC FOR THE BLESSING


by Sonny Islas

Subtitle: THE DANGERS OF CHILD FAVORITISM
Let’s continue to remember that we’re studying the story line and family history of Jesus our Savior. Jesus comes from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel).
This portion of the Saviors’ story highlights His ancestors’ sinfulness. Sins such as: child favoritism, deception, disobedience, hatred and a desire for revenge and murder. In this part of the story line, the whole family of four - Isaac, Rebekah, Esau and Jacob took God’s matters into their own hands and it left a messy trail.
Genesis 27:1-27
