"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 . . . . .

Part ONE ~


By now many of us have heard, seen, or read about what’s going on in Wilmore, Kentucky at Asbury University. What at least seems to be a spontaneous revival that began among students, if not the faculty, and the community as they came in to the Hughes Auditorium on FEB 8th, 2023, which hasn’t abated in the least.
It began as the students gathered for the preaching of the Word.
We’ll talk about the content of this teaching a bit later.

This isn’t the first reported revival on this Wesleyan campus however; apparently there have been nine distinct revivals since 1905 at this University. But are these (or this particularly recent example) genuine revivals that spiritually revived and revitalized the church, or simply momentary spiritual experiences of worship? And what we are seeing currently – is this something really from GOD or contrived or perhaps something deceptive that will lure people away into error? Strange Fire, in effect…

The history of revivals here in America, Europe and other nations around the world have all followed a familiar pattern, though there is no clear formula to produce them because the real ones aren’t man made.
The sort of revival meetings that are penciled in on the church calendar with chosen speakers and events are no guarantee whatsoever of a genuine move of GOD.

Revivals at their heart are something that GOD Himself initiates and inspires. And why does He? What purpose do they serve and can we even expect them today?

DEUTERONOMY 12: “UNCOMPROMISED WORSHIP” by Sonny Islas, check out the complete teaching here!

And for even more on this, check out David Guzik’s study on

INTRODUCTION: In Deuteronomy 12, Yahweh God calls for uncompromising worship by the mouth of Moses. Israel must worship in the holy way and in the holy place that GOD has prescribed – How and where God has chosen. Cannan was a land that was pagan through and through and was utterly infested with gloss idol worship. And it’s no different for us NT believers today – we too are called to refrain from anything and everything that dishonors the LORD.

1 "These are the statutes and judgments which you shall be careful to observe in the land which the LORD God of your fathers is giving you to possess, all the days that you live on the earth. 2 "You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 3 "And you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and burn their wooden images with fire; you shall cut down the carved images of their gods and destroy their names from that place. 4 "You shall not worship the LORD your God with such things. 5 "But you shall seek the place where the LORD your God chooses, out of all your tribes, to put His name for His dwelling place; and there you shall go.

ANOTHER WORD From The WALL - Greg Reid FEB 2023

Things As They Are - February 2023

Dear Friends,

I will be on my way to a pastor’s conference after mailing this. I am looking forward to a few days sitting under good teaching and being immersed in prayer. It has been a long time.

The challenges ahead for the new year are many, but I am looking forward to meeting them and moving forward with the work He has entrusted to me.

The following quote is from the online magazine JEWISH VOICE, and the article entitled Absolute Proof for the Existence of God 

The story is told that King Frederick the Great of Prussia once asked his physician to give him proof for the existence of God. His physician replied, ‘Your Majesty, the continued existence of the Jews.’

“It’s true. The Jewish people are the most persecuted people in history. From [the books of Exodus] and … Esther, down through all the centuries, there have been repeated attempts to destroy them. No other group has been so persecuted. Yet still the Jewish people miraculously survive. But the miracle is even greater than that!

“Before 1948, almost no one was convinced the Jewish people, after centuries of wandering, could return to Israel and reclaim their ancient homeland. But they did. Then, almost no one believed the new State of Israel, surrounded by enemies, would long survive. But [they] did, amazingly winning a long series of wars and conflicts that continue today.

“Few people initially had faith God would fulfill His ancient promise to reestablish the Jewish people in [the land of] Israel. But today, many Christians understand and support the State of Israel and the Jewish people as a fulfillment of biblical prophecy – and an important step towards the eventual return of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah

DEUTERONOMY 11: “BEING STRONG BY FAITH IN GOD’s KINGDOM” by James Fire, check out another teaching on this chapter by Sonny Islas here!

INTRODUCTION: When “therefore” is in the text, that connects what’s about to read, with what was just read prior: you have to back up to the prior text and see what the “therefore” is there for:

17 "For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe. 18 "He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing. 19 "Therefore love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20 "You shall fear the LORD your God; you shall serve Him, and to Him you shall hold fast, and take oaths in His name. 21 "He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen. 22 "Your fathers went down to Egypt with seventy persons, and now the LORD your God has made you as the stars of heaven in multitude.

Beholding the goodness and grace, His tender mercies and kindness; and recognizing that GOD has made Himself the GOD of Israel, Who has been faithful to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (and promised that He would make of them a great nation, “as the stars of heaven in multitude”); having devoted Himself to His people He accomplished impossible things for them… “therefore…” And now we pick up in Chapter 11:

1 "Therefore you shall love the LORD your God, and keep His charge, His statutes, His judgments, and His commandments always. 2 "Know today that I do not speak with your children, who have not known and who have not seen the chastening of the LORD your God, His greatness and His mighty hand and His outstretched arm- 3 "His signs and His acts which He did in the midst of Egypt, to Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to all his land; 4 "what He did to the army of Egypt, to their horses and their chariots: how He made the waters of the Red Sea overflow them as they pursued you, and how the LORD has destroyed them to this day; 5 "what He did for you in the wilderness until you came to this place; 6 "and what He did to Dathan and Abiram the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben: how the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, their households, their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel- 7 "but your eyes have seen every great act of the LORD which He did.

~ By James Fire 

For a 10 minute summary of this article, visit the MORE GOD, less me YouTube Channel and watch the video.
Scripture states that in the last days perilous times will come (2 TIM 3:1) and that men’s hearts will fail them for fear, because there will seem no way out of the various dilemmas, either personal, national, or global. Scripture speaks of a time ahead when this will become a prevalent condition worldwide:

LUKE 21:25-26
25 "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 "men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken.

As stated above, there is going to be a “shake up” of the heavenly powers, a judgment upon Satan’s unholy hierarchy and this will have profoundly terrible effect on mankind who will be the prey (REV 12:12). Note the word “distress” which in the Greek is sunoche, meaning “anxiety, anguish, distress”. And the word “perplexity” which means “a quandary [something for which there is no viable solution]”. The word for “fear” means “alarm, fright, to be afraid – with exceeding terror.

In the year 2022, a total of about 11.2% of the US population suffered from medium to high anxiety levels: it might not seem like a lot but that percentage equals over 37 million people in our nation who suffer these conditions.
Also, 31% of US adults experience anxiety ‘disorders’ at some time in their lives. And it seems that in recent years, it’s those who are in the 18 to 29 year range that have experienced the most anxiety, and women more so than men (though the number of men experiencing anxiety has steadily increased over the years).

And most notably in statistics: those who have experienced anxiety and depression during the CVD-19 pandemic total about 25% of the US population. The groups being affected most were young people and women. Among the most affected groups, there are record highs of suicide more than any time prior.

Above stats gleaned from the following:

Symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder Among Adults: United States, 2019

COVID-19 pandemic triggers 25% increase in prevalence of anxiety and depression worldwide

On a local level, I attended a church leadership meeting recently and one of the pastors there made us aware that many men he spoke with in the last week felt anxiety, a sense of doom and imminent death, whether in feeling or physical symptoms such as extreme heart palpitations, tightness in the chest, numbness (and, or paralysis, blurred vision, etc. from what I've heard from other sources).

We can expect such things to increase – these are among the birth pangs described in MATT 24:8 – and more people being afflicted with this most debilitating condition.
What are the root causes for this phenomenon and what is the remedy?
We have addressed this previously on FROM The MIND Of FIRE: FAITH Over FEAR.

Yet, we will examine these questions further in this TTUF article!

DEUTERONOMY 10: “WHAT DOES GOD REQUIRE OF YOU?” by Sonny Islas, check out the complete teaching here!

INTRODUCTION: As we proceed in the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses will continue to remind this new generation of their parent’s past failures and God’s faithfulness. Moses’ goal is to impress upon their hearts (like a good preacher and loving leader would), the importance of knowing what God expects from them once they possess the Promised Land (in our case, once we’re indwelt by the Holy Spirit). Because, again, Israel was called (starting with Abraham and Sarah) and chosen by God to be His holy representatives – to display His light (Biblical truth) and His love (God’s merciful character) to the godless world around them: which they failed to do time and time again.

Today, this responsibility to live for God and to make Him known (through His Word and by our actions) has been given to the New Testament Church.

There are many Christians who say, what does God want from me? What does He require and expect from me? Well that’s a great question and Moses gives us the answer.

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE (In The Final Acts on the Global Stage Being Set)?

~ By James Fire

(This is a republication of a Two-Part Article from The RED PILL Consortium. It’s been abridged, updated, and revised from the original which you can read at the links provided at the end of this article)

For the FB video teaching recorded at ETERNAL LIVING WORD Church, go here.

Anyone involved with stage theater knows that when props and background scenery are being built, costumes being designed, actors standing with scripts in hand, reciting their lines one to another, that a play is in production.
It's all preparation for opening night; the curtain goes up before a full auditorium, watching as the story unfolds. Shakespeare said it once, "All the world’s a stage, and its people, merely players."

Just as each member of a play has a role that comprises of a character, costume, and script lines, so do we all in real life, but we’re not acting (right??)! Our character reveals who we really are, and it’s really known in times of crisis! We’re either on the side of good, or the side of evil; either children of GOD or children of the devil – there are no orphans.
