Saved to Serve


The two restored demoniacs...*They could not instruct the people as the disciples who had been daily with Christ were able to do. But they could tell what they knew; ...*This is what everyone can do whose heart has been touched by the grace of God. *This is the witness for which our Lord calls, and for want of which the world is perishing.

 He who drinks of the living water becomes a fountain of life. The receiver becomes a giver. Those who receive are to impart to others. From every direction are coming calls for help.

Every individual has a life distinct from all others, and an experience differing essentially from theirs. God desires that our praise shall ascend to Him, marked with our own individuality.

Ye are My witnesses, saith the Lord,
That I am God.
Isaiah 43:12

Last Sabbath of 2016

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work
which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day
 from all his work which he had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. 
Genesis 2:1-3

But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God:
in it thou shalt not do any work,...For in six days the LORD
made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is,
and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the
sabbath day, and hallowed it. 
Exodus 20:10,11

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven,
having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on
the earth, .... Saying with a loud voice, Fear God,
and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and
worship him that made heaven,
and earth, and the sea,
and the fountains of waters. 
Revelation 14:6,7

Creation Moment 12/31/2016 - Pluto & Charon whom also he made the worlds;
Hebrews 1:2
"Ever since the July 2015 flyby of Pluto by the New Horizons spacecraft (7/15/16), planetary scientists have struggled to understand the surprising, unexpected features on the dwarf planet. The final bits of data were received at earth in October 2016. Nature published a series of new papers in November, providing popular media reporters with opportunities to invent eye-catching headlines:
  • Pluto could harbor a subterranean icy ocean (Fox News).
  • The Ocean Beneath Pluto’s Wandering Heart (Astrobiology Magazine).
  • Pluto may sport clouds of poisonous acid and flammable gases (New Scientist).
  • Pluto may have tipped over when Charon tugged at its heart (New Scientist).
  • Pluto’s Wandering Heart Hints at Subsurface Ocean (
  • Pluto ‘has slushy ocean’ below surface (BBC News).
  • Could there be life in Pluto’s ocean? ( There’s one in every crowd: a hydrobioscopy imagineer.
  • Pluto’s ‘heart’ may be cold as ice, but it’s in the right place, according to research (
  • Cracked, frozen and tipped over: New clues from Pluto’s past (Science Daily).
  • New analysis adds support for a subsurface ocean on Pluto (Science Daily).
The subtitle of that last headline indicates Pluto may not be alone: Findings suggest other large objects in the Kuiper belt may also have liquid oceans beneath frozen shells.” This was not supposed to be. The bodies at the farthest reaches from the sun were supposed to be the oldest, coldest and deadest. What is this talk about liquid oceans, dynamic atmospheres and tip-overs?" CEH

 Healing of the Soul


Many of those who came to Christ for help had brought disease upon themselves, yet He did not refuse to heal them....There are today thousands suffering from physical disease who, like the paralytic, are longing for the message, "Thy sins are forgiven." Luke 7:48...They can find no relief until they come to the Healer of the soul.

Whatever may be the evil practice, the master passion which through long indulgence binds both soul and body, Christ is able and longs to deliver.
Never feel that Christ is far away. He is always near.
Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul.

 And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more
John 7:11

The "Really" File - (GREEN Tent Spiritualism)

Is this the way you repay the LORD,
you foolish and senseless people?
Deuteronomy 32:6 NLT
You got to be kidding me.....the GREEN RELIGION just keeps getting kookier...tents for divination for the myth of man-made climate change?...will this nonsense ever end?....Talk about GREEN SPIRITUALISM...
"....the concept of climate anxiety is now part of the popular lexicon. Yet while cause for concern has increased, engagement
with climate change has stagnated or ceased. This disparity is what spurred Leonard to action. “I thought to myself, if we’re not going to listen to climate scientists, we might as well be listening to fortune-tellers,” Leonard says. Then he took that idea and ran with it, using the art of divination as a conduit to help people grapple with climate change.
In The Tent, participants choose among three tarot decks—the classic Rider-Waite deck, the Tarot of the Boroughs and the Wild Unknown deck—and then pose a question related to climate change.

To walk into Leonard’s latest installation, The Tent of Casually Observed Phenologies, is to enter a space that expresses heaven 
From the "Really" File
and earth, past and future. Participants step past walls festooned with strips of colorful, recycled cloth and haunting pastel watercolors of animals that seem to be on the verge of disappearing. It is an ephemeral space intended, through both shape and sound, to convey intimacy and connection with one’s immediate surroundings. Participants stand on bare ground and peer into an oculus that opens up to the sky—reinforcing humans’ place in the order of the universe, illuminating both themselves and the diviner."


For God,
who commanded the light to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6

"True light comes only from God, since “God is light” (1 John 1:5). As the world depends on the sunshine for its physical life, so we continually must receive the Son’s shining in our hearts to sustain our spiritual life.
Since God, in His omnipotence, dwells “in the light which no man can approach unto” (1 Timothy 6:16), He shines on us for salvation, spiritual illumination, and daily guidance only through His Son, the Word made flesh,..." HHM

When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
Job 28:26
"Evidence for recent creation came from the absence of fossilized
lightning strikes on Earth's land surfaces. Lightning strikes freeze sand and other soil types to make weird, branching formations called fulgurites. Billions of years of lightning strikes should leave hordes of rock-hard fulgurites all over the earth, but we only find a small fraction of that amount." ICR

The Touch of Faith


To believe in Christ merely as the Savior of the world can never bring healing to the soul. The faith that is unto salvation is not a mere assent to the truth of the gospel. True faith is that which receives Christ as a personal Savior. God gave His only-begotten Son, that I, by believing in Him, "should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Whoever will fall at His feet, saying in faith, "Lord, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean," shall hear the answer, "I will; be thou clean." Matthew 8:2,3

Whatever your anxieties and trials, spread out your case before the Lord.
Circumstances may separate friends;
the restless waters of the wide sea may roll between us and them.
But no circumstances,
no distance,
can separate us from the Savior.

God's "Christmas" present to YOU

For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves:

Ephesians 2:8

What "LAW" is John referring to?

"The beloved disciple, who listened to the words of Jesus on the
mount, writing long afterward under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, speaks of the law as of perpetual obligation. He says that "sin is the transgression of the law" and that "whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law." 1 John 3:4. He makes it plain that the law to which he refers is "an old commandment which ye had from the beginning." 1 John 2:7. He is speaking of the law that existed at the creation and was reiterated upon Mount Sinai."
Thoughts From The Mount Of Blessing p.48 E.G.W.

Creation Moment 12/29/2016 - "t-values" of Dendrochronology

As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river's side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters.
Numbers 24:6
"There are several fundamental problems with using tree rings as reliable natural clocks. Beyond the fact that more or less than one ring can be added to a tree per year, the main problem with using “dendrochronology” as a reliable natural clock, independent of other forms of calibration, is that matching rings from different pieces of wood isn’t remotely a dependable science.  And, this has been known for some time now.  

In a 1986 paper, “Interpretation of cross correlation between tree-ring series“, Yamaguchi
recognized that overlapping tree rings from different trees tend to “auto correlate” or actually cross-match with each other in several different places within a tree-ring sequence.  What he did to prove this is quite interesting.  He took a 290-ring Douglas-fir log known, by historical methods, to date between AD 1482 and 1668 and demonstrated that it could cross-match in multiple different places within the Pacific Northwest Douglas Fir Master Growth-ring Sequence to give very good “t-values.” A t-value is given to a “wiggle-match” on the basis of a statistical analysis of the correspondence between two wood samples. This statistical assessment is done by computer which assigns high t-values (3 and above) to good wiggle-matches and low t-values (below 3) to those with poor correspondence between the ring patterns.  Amazingly, using such t-value analysis, Yamaguchi found 113 different matches having a confidence level of greater than 99.9%. For example, Yamaguchi demonstrated that his log could cross-match with other tree-ring sequences to give t-values of around 5 at AD 1504 (for the low end of the ring age), 7 at AD 1647 and 4.5 at AD 1763. Six of these matches were non-overlapping. That means that this particular piece of wood could be dated to be any one of those six vastly different ages to within a 99.9% degree of confidence.  Because of this fundamental problem, many of the most well-known tree-ring series are fatally flawed.

....of Rod A. Savidge, a professor of tree physiology/biochemistry, Forestry, and Environmental Management at the University of New Brunswick. He vented the following interesting comments regarding the science of dendrochronology, published in a Letter to the Editor in the New York Times, November of 2002:
“As a tree physiologist who has devoted his career to understanding how trees make wood, I have made sufficient observations on tree rings and cambial growth to know that dendrochronology is not at all an exact science. Indeed, its activities include subjective interpretations of what does and what does not constitute an annual ring, statistical manipulation of data to fulfill subjective expectations, and discarding of perfectly good data sets when they contradict other data sets that have already been accepted. Such massaging of data cannot by any stretch of the imagination be considered science; it merely demonstrates a total lack of rigor attending so-called dendrochronology “research” . . . It would be a major step forward if dendrochronology could embrace the scientific method.”

 With Nature and With God  


Christ loved to gather the people about Him *under the blue heavens, *on some grassy hillside, or *on the beach beside the lake.
Here, surrounded by the works of His own creation, He could turn their thoughts from the artificial to the natural.

All who are under the training of God need the quiet hour for
*communion with their own hearts,
*with nature,
*and with God.
In them is to be revealed a life that is not in harmony with the world, its customs, or its practices;

...he departed into a mountain to pray.
Matthew 6:46

Calvin misunderstood "Predestined"

 Calvin thought & taught that Predestination meant that if one joins the church they were "predestined" before birth to be saved and if one didn't, they were Predestined before birth to be lost.
This a WRONG. Calvin's Error allows for no free Predestination actually works is as follows:
God had the Plan of Redemption in place so those who would choose to follow Him could be saved.
It was His Predestined Plan of Redemption.....

"...we are “predestinated [previous boundaries set] . . . unto the adoption of children by Jesus
Christ to himself” (Ephesians 1:5). And “if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17).
Furthermore, we have been “accepted in the beloved” (Ephesians 1:6). That word, “accepted,” is a specialized form of the word most often translated “grace.” We have been “graced” by almighty God, who has set absolute boundaries around our lives and made us His children. We were purchased “through his blood” (v. 7) “that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar [that is, ‘precious’] people, zealous of good works” (Titus 2:14).
Moreover, we are forgiven (Ephesians 1:7)! Our sins are “covered” (Psalm 32:1); “cast” behind God’s back (Isaiah 38:17); removed “as far as the east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12); “remember[ed] . . . no more” (Jeremiah 31:34); and cleansed “from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9)."

Days of Ministry


......, no act to gain applause, was ever witnessed. Christ was hid in God, ...The followers of Christ are to be the light of the world; but God does not bid them make an effort to shine...He desires that their souls shall be imbued with the principles of heaven; then, as they come in contact with the world, they will reveal the light that is in them.

The miracle of the loaves teaches dependence upon God.
In this miracle,
*Christ received from the Father;

So all who are united to Christ will receive from Him the bread of life, and impart it to others.

Christ's Two-fold Healing

"Frequently, when our Savior was here,
*He demon­strated that He had power to cleanse and renew men's minds by the forgiveness of their sins.
*Also He showed that He pos­sessed ample power over their physical frames—a power that was only limited, at times, by the degree of their faith in Him."
Ernest Cox,1957

But that ye may know that
*the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins,
*then saith he to the sick of the palsy, Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

In most modern scientists this belief has died: it will be interesting to see how long their confidence in uniformity survives it. Two significant developments have already appeared - *the hypothesis of a lawless sub-nature, and *the surrender of the claim that science is true." C.S.Lewis

From Pergamos to Pontifex Maximus

Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.
Zechariah 2:7
"On the overthrow of Babylon by the Persians, who nourished a tradi­tional hatred for its idolatry, the Chal­dean priesthood fled to Pergamos in Asia Minor, and made it the head­quarters of their religion. Hence Christ in His charge to the church in that city speaks of it as being ' where Satan's seat is.'

"The last pontiff king of Pergamos was Attains III, who at his death bequeathed his dominions and authority to the Roman people, and from that time the two lines of Pontifex Maximus were merged in the Roman one."— The True Christ and the False Christ, J. Gamier, Vol. II, pp. 94, 95.

In the great apostasy, which re­ceived a marked impetus hi the days of Constantine and the two centuries which followed his reign, when the Christianity of the West became so largely paganized, the religion of the empire gradually became the religion of the professed church, being cloaked under the forms and names of Chris­tianity. Note the following extract:

"But just as pagan Rome was the true offspring and successor of Baby­lon, so is papal Rome the true
offspring and successor of pagan Rome. When paganism was nominally abolished in the Roman Empire, the head of the pagan hierarchy was also suppressed.
Some of the Christian emperors did indeed accept the title of Pontifex Max­imus, while others, refusing it them­selves, appointed a pagan priest, until the reign of Gratian, who, refusing to do either, abolished the office 376 A. D. Two years afterward, however, fearing that religion might become disorgan­ized, he offered the title and office to Damasus, Bishop of Rome. . . . This bishop, less scrupulous than the em­peror, accepted the office, and from that time until now the title has been held by the popes of Rome, from whom, and through whom, the whole hier­archy of Western Christendom have received their ordination. So also the honors and powers attached to the title, the dominion of the civilized world, previously wielded by the pon­tiff emperors of pagan Rome, passed to the pontiffs and hierarchy of papal Rome, who for centuries imposed their will upon kings, and held the nations in thralldom, because the dragon god of paganism had given them ' his power and his seat and great author­ity.' "—Id., pp. 95, 96.

Furthermore, as the religion of papal Rome became, in its essential features, the same as the re­ligion of pagan Rome, which was the same as ancient Babylon, the papal church is fittingly entitled Babylon." MinistryMagazine April,1929
"The Pontifex Maximus (Latin, literally: "greatest pontiff" or "greatest bridge-builder") was the high priest of the College of Pontiffs (Collegium Pontificum) in ancient Rome.... the term pontifex literally means "bridge-builder" (pons + facere); "maximus" literally means "greatest"." wikipedia

Where He wants to LEAD YOU

 In my Father's house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
 I go to prepare a place for you.
John 14:2
"His own nation rejected Him;
His own religion crucified Him;

and thus He presented Himself, the willing victim of our sins,

to be rent in soul,
man­gled in flesh,
broken in heart,

that He might show us the Father,
show us ourselves,
and lead us back to our Father's house."

793 Years of the Nativity Scene?

And they came with haste,
and found Mary, and Joseph,
and the babe lying in a manger.
Luke 2:16

"Blame St. Francis of Assisi, who is credited with staging the first nativity scene in 1223. The only historical account we have of Francis’ nativity scene comes from The Life of St. Francis of Assisi by St. Bonaventure, a Franciscan monk who was born five
years before Francis’ death.
According to Bonaventure’s biography, St. Francis got permission from Pope Honorious III to set up a manger with hay and two live animals—an ox and an ass—in a cave in the Italian village of Grecio. He then invited the villagers to come gaze upon the scene while he preached about “the babe of Bethlehem.”
Bonaventure also claims that the hay used by Francis miraculously acquired the power to cure local cattle diseases and pestilences.
Nativity buffs will know, however, that the familiar cast of characters relied upon today—the three wise men and the shepherds—is not biblically accurate.
Of the New Testament’s four gospels, .... Matthew mentions wise men, while Luke comments on shepherds. But nowhere in the Bible do shepherds and wise men appear together. What’s worse, no one mentions donkeys, oxen, cattle or other farmyard friends in conjunction with Jesus’ birth."

Re-echoing the "Christmas" Song

"Earth was hushed, and heaven stooped to listen to the song,--

Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, good will toward men.
Oh that today the human family could recognize that song! The declaration then made, the note then struck, will swell to the close of time, and resound to the ends of the earth. When the Sun of Righteousness shall arise, with healing in His wings, that song will be re-echoed by the voice of a great multitude,..."

Creation Moment 12/25/2016 - Lesson of Mendeleev

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath:
but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.     
Ephesians 6:4

"Periodic Table of the elements..... So who invented the table? You will find his name in the table
itself. Element number 101 – Mendelevium – was named after Dmitri Mendeleev, the Russian chemist who first published the periodic table in 1869.
Back then, of course, there were far fewer known elements than the 118 elements we know about today. Interestingly enough, while he was putting the table together, he had to leave a number of gaps open for unknown elements he predicted would someday be discovered.
As Donald DeYoung points out in his book Pioneer Explorers of Intelligent Design, Mendeleev was raised by a devout Orthodox Christian mother who told him to "'patiently search divine and scientific truth.' … Mendeleev thus saw chemistry as a royal and godly pursuit."
Sad to say, however, Dmitri eventually turned away from his mother's faith and embraced a form of deism. Dmitri well illustrates the truth of the old saying: "God has no grandchildren." Christian parents, though it is your responsibility to teach your children Biblical truths, you must also remember that their salvation is out of your hands. It is ultimately a matter between them and God." CrMm

John 14:2,3
And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst.
So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long; and the separate place, and the building, with the walls thereof, an hundred cubits long;
The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round about on their three stories, over against the door, cieled with wood round about, and from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were covered;

How Hitler went "Herod" on "Christmas"

YES..."Christmas" isn't really December 25, but the point here is how Hitler stomped Christ out of the pagan-rooted holiday & reinstated more blatant paganism.....and how Hitler went "Herod" on the Christmas holiday to stomp out the Christ child and focus on the secular state....

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under,...Matthew 2:16

"One of the most striking features of private celebration in the Nazi period was the redefinition of Christmas as a neo-pagan, Nordic celebration. Rather on focus on the holiday’s religious origins, the Nazi version celebrated the supposed heritage of the Aryan race,
the label Nazis gave to “racially acceptable” members of the German racial state.
According to Nazi intellectuals, cherished holiday traditions drew on winter solstice rituals practiced by “Germanic” tribes before the arrival of Christianity. Lighting candles on the Christmas tree, for example, recalled pagan desires for the “return of light” after the shortest day of the year.
Since the 1860s, German historians, theologians and popular writers had argued that German holiday observances were holdovers from pre-Christian pagan rituals and popular folk superstitions.
So because these ideas and traditions had a lengthy history, Nazi propagandists were able to easily cast Christmas as a celebration of pagan German nationalism. A vast state apparatus (centered in the Nazi Ministry for Propaganda and Enlightenment) ensured that a Nazified holiday dominated public space and celebration in the Third Reich.

But two aspects of the Nazi version of Christmas were relatively new.
First, because Nazi ideologues saw organized religion as an enemy of the totalitarian state, propagandists sought to deemphasize–or eliminate altogether–the Christian aspects of the holiday. Official celebrations might mention a supreme being, but they more prominently featured solstice and “light” rituals that supposedly captured the holiday’s pagan origins.
Second, as Hitler’s 1921 speech suggests, Nazi celebration
evoked racial purity and anti-Semitism. Before the Nazis took power in 1933, ugly and open attacks on German Jews typified holiday propaganda.
Blatant anti-Semitism more or less disappeared after 1933, as the regime sought to stabilize its control over a population tired of political strife, though Nazi celebrations still excluded those deemed “unfit” by the regime. Countless media images of invariably blond-haired, blue-eyed German families gathered around the Christmas tree helped normalize ideologies of racial purity.
Mothers and children were encouraged to make homemade decorations shaped like “Odin’s Sun Wheel” and bake holiday cookies shaped like a loop (a fertility symbol). The ritual of lighting candles on the Christmas tree was said to create an atmosphere of “pagan demon magic” that would subsume the Star of Bethlehem and the birth of Jesus in feelings of “Germanness.”
Exalted Night of the Clear Stars, the most famous Nazi carol, was reprinted in Nazi songbooks, broadcast in radio programs, performed at countless public celebrations–and sung at home.
Verses of stars, light and an eternal mother suggest a world redeemed through faith in National Socialism–not Jesus." Smithsonian


Creation Moment 12/24/2016 - Purple Creatures

Look at the diversity God even built into seafloor life..even colors like purple....
And God created ...every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind,
Genesis 1:21
"This purple stubby squid was filmed from an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) off the E/V Nautilus while it explored the seafloor off the coast of California. It even had the researchers on board exclaiming excitedly when they came across the wide-eyed
cephalopod at a depth of 2,950 feet, the equivalent of eight football fields.
In the deep sea there’s not very much light. People tend to think that it’s completely dark down there, but there is light that’s produced by other organisms, so having big eyes lets you gather as much light as possible..... the cephalopod was likely frozen in fear of the enormous submersible looming in front of it, or else stunned by the bright lights being shined in its prominent peepers, like an underwater deer in headlights."

* The Father - Most Holy Place/JUDGMENT....and the Ancient of days did sit,....A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: ... the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
Daniel 7:9,10

2) The "Wedding" Scenario:
Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Revelation 19:9
They each play a role in the "Wedding"-
* The Father - Performs the ceremony of the Marriage
* The Son - The Bridegroom (His people, the Bride)
* The Spirit - Sort of like the best man, inviting people to the Wedding....And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. Revelation 22:17

Creation Moment 12/23/2016 - Brokenhearted: Lesson From Nature's Creator

"God's healing power runs all through nature.

If a tree is cut, if a human being is wounded or breaks a bone, nature begins at once to repair the injury. Even before the need
exists, the healing agencies are in readiness; and as soon as a part is wounded, every energy is bent to the work of restoration.

So it is in the spiritual realm. Before sin created the need, God had provided the remedy. Every soul that yields to temptation is wounded, bruised, by the adversary; but wherever there is sin, there is the Savior. It is Christ's work to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, ... to set at liberty them that are bruised. Luke 4:18". Education p.113 E.G.W.

The "Really" File - (Gold Angels & 1849 Gold Rush?)

Did Mr. Jansen get a picture of this "gold angel" standing over L.A. with his cell phone? Most people would have....of course when your FIBBING you likely wouldn't have a pic of the event since the event NEVER HAPPENED......these people have no shame....
....they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
Jeremiah 14:14

"History was made in Los Angeles on Saturday as Lou Engle, Mike Bickle, CIndy Jacobs, Jack Hayford and other generals of the faith
gathered at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for Azusa Now.
Jeff Jansen, founder of Global Fire Ministries, told Charisma News he believes it was one of the most significant events of the past few decades.
"Amidst the worship and intercession I believe something highly significant has shifted in the spirit and that we have stepped into a new timeline of revival in the Lord that will result in revival fires burning in not only America but the nations of the earth," Jansen says.
Jansen reminds that Azusa street revival of 1906 changed the course of world history as many new denominations were birthed 
From the "Really" File
through the raw supernatural power and Glory of God. So now 110 years later another fresh move of God is now being birthed and fresh revival fires will burn in many cities in the nations of the earth.

"As we were driving on Interstate 5 to the Azusa Now event on April 9, I saw a large gold angel standing over LA," Jansen says. "The Lord said, 'Just as the 1849 gold rush drew people to California ... So 4/9 2016 will mark a new gold rush of divine proportion that will once again draw the nations into revival." Charisma
