Redeeming the Time

The Future is Now


He who keeps his command will experience nothing harmful; And a wise man’s heart discerns both time and judgment, Because for every matter there is a time and judgment, Though the misery of man increases greatly. For he does not know what will happen; So who can tell him when it will occur? - Ecclesiastes 8:5-7(NKJV)

The heart of the wise discerns both time and judgment. It is my prayer that you are counted among the wise. May God grant you the ability to understand what decisions to make for every matter you face. May He also give you the wisdom to discern when it is the right time to make those decisions. In your natural ability, you may not know the future but if you are a born-again Christian, the Holy Spirit living inside of you does. This book was designed to stir up the gift of the Holy Spirit inside of you so much so that you would tap into His endless wisdom and understanding.

When I was much younger, I would live in the future. I believed in delayed gratification and personal sacrifice. The principle of seedtime and harvest continues to be one of the pillars of my existence. However, at some point, recently, I experienced an epiphany and realized that the future I was working toward had become my present. In other words, the future is now. This is the moment to do what God has called you to do. I have embraced it in my own life, and you should too.

Nobody Has Everything


Digital StillCamera


But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. For we have brought nothing into the world, so [it is clear that] we cannot take anything out of it, either. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who [are not financially ethical and] crave to get rich [with a compulsive, greedy longing for wealth] fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction [leading to personal misery]. For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves [through and through] with many sorrows. But as for you, O man of God, flee from these things; aim at and pursue righteousness [true goodness, moral conformity to the character of God], godliness [the fear of God], faith, love, steadfastness, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses. - 1 Timothy 6:6-12(AMP)

After reading this book about time you may feel a bit retrospective. Certainly, that is how I feel. After some internal reflection, here are my closing thoughts. Nobody has everything! That is one of the principles my wife Angel and I live by. It keeps us grounded and helps to curb our expectations out of life. Here is what I mean by that statement. There is no person on this earth whose life is perfect. Regardless of how things appear, looks can be deceiving. While some may appear to have it all, they do not. Two years before I wrote this book, the number of high profile suicides spiked, drawing international attention. Why would rich, successful people like Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain who seemed to have it all want to end their own lives?

The glamorous existence of the rich and famous appears to be the stuff of dreams but what we see in the media is not entirely real. It is rehearsed, scripted, air-brushed, edited, auto-tuned and perfected for human consumption. What looks like a dream life on the outside might be a nightmare to the one living it. We do not want to live other people's lives. Yes, we think we want the stuff they have but we do not want their problems. We might want their pleasures, but we do not want their pain. We might want their money, but we don't want their problems.

That perspective started for me when I was disappointed in the lack of support I received for a venture I had started. While complaining about how hard it was to keep going without help, Angel told me something profound that never left me. She said, "Be thankful for what people do for you, don't be disappointed about what they don't do." It might sound simple now but at that time, it was like the heavens opened and God Himself shined a light on me. My focus was in the wrong place. I was fixated on what I didn't have instead of what I did have. Once my perspective changed, I was content.

Tough Financial Times


Tough Financial Times


This will happen just as I have described it, for God has revealed to Pharaoh in advance what he is about to do. The next seven years will be a period of great prosperity throughout the land of Egypt. But afterward there will be seven years of famine so great that all the prosperity will be forgotten in Egypt. Famine will destroy the land. This famine will be so severe that even the memory of the good years will be erased. As for having two similar dreams, it means that these events have been decreed by God, and he will soon make them happen. “Therefore, Pharaoh should find an intelligent and wise man and put him in charge of the entire land of Egypt. Then Pharaoh should appoint supervisors over the land and let them collect one-fifth of all the crops during the seven good years. Have them gather all the food produced in the good years that are just ahead and bring it to Pharaoh’s storehouses. Store it away, and guard it so there will be food in the cities. That way there will be enough to eat when the seven years of famine come to the land of Egypt. Otherwise this famine will destroy the land.” - Genesis 41:28-36(NLT)

An economic downturn came to The United States of America in 2020. I had known in my heart for a few years that it was coming but every day The Holy Ghost kept reminding me. I was not the only person who knew it. God strategically sent others to confirm what He already said to me. It is time for us to increase the sense of urgency we have for the prophetic Word of God. That way, when He speaks to us about things to come, we will take Him seriously and act accordingly.

When God first spoke to me about this, He said that we have 8 years for the bottom to fall out on this booming economy. That was in 2017. Unfortunately, that was the max time available to get ready and was the best-case scenario. What does that mean? The deadline for it to take place would be 2025 but there was no guarantee that it would take that long. I don’t know when you will be reading this but it’s an example of how God speaks. If God is gracious enough to allow us to make it that far without an economic crash we can only be grateful. He also warned that the predicted crash would be worse than The Great Depression of the 1930s and the Great Recession of the early 2000s.

If you have not taken the time to read my last book, “The Fish with the Coin in Its Mouth”, do so. It will help you navigate economic crashes and believe me; you need to prepare. I do not expect this to be on the cover of Charisma magazine or broadcast across the world on TBN or The Word Network. I also do not expect this to be the hottest topic on the preaching circuit but mark my words. An economic crash was declared by God to come by 2025 and if we did not get ready it was destined to crush us. However, if we did get ready, we would benefit from the greatest wealth transfer of our generation.

Prayer in Persecution

Prayer in Persecution


About that time King Herod Agrippa began to persecute some believers in the church. He had the apostle James (John’s brother) killed with a sword. When Herod saw how much this pleased the Jewish people, he also arrested Peter. (This took place during the Passover celebration.) Then he imprisoned him, placing him under the guard of four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring Peter out for public trial after the Passover. But while Peter was in prison, the church prayed very earnestly for him. - Acts 12:1-5(NLT) 

One of the most inspiring teachings on prayer comes out of Acts 12. In it, the power of prayer was demonstrated at an unprecedented level by the early church. After Herod killed James, he got carried away by the adulation of the Jewish people and chose to arrest Peter. The church was having none of it and broke out into mass intercession for Peter. A large group gathered at the home of Mary, the mother of John Mark, for what could easily be described as the most effective prayer meeting ever. Before they could finish praying, God miraculously answered their prayers. He sent an angel to free Peter from prison and personally escort him out.  

On top of that, Peter showed up safe and sound to the same prayer meeting to greet them. It was such a surprise visit to them that at first, they didn’t believe it was really him and would not open the door. Thank God for a persistent young lady who knew that the answer to their prayer was outside knocking while they continued praying.

The End of Time

The End of Time


So they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, but when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?” And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them. But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven. - Luke 21:7-11(NKJV) 

Eschatology, the study of the end times, is essentially the art and science of discerning signs. From Genesis to Revelation, the scriptures list signs of the first and second comings of Jesus, the destruction and rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, the first and “second” Resurrections, the spirit and person of the Antichrist and so much more. As we bring this study of time to a close, I feel strongly by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost that a short discourse on the end times would be beneficial.  

All we need to know about what The Lord has done throughout history, what He is doing right now and what He will do until the end of time is located somewhere in the 66 books of the Bible. The challenge to all of us is to not just find what the scripture says about the end times but understand where it fits in the trajectory of all human history.

Don't Fear Failure

Success God's Way
Don't Fear Failure


If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” - Daniel 3:17-18(NKJV) 

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego said in Daniel 3:17 that God would save them from the fiery furnace, then followed that up in Daniel 3:18 by saying that even if He didn't, they still would not worship the golden image. Were they contradicting themselves? No! They were being realistic. They knew that they could die in the fire even if they didn't believe that they would. Yet, accepting the risk gave them the courage to take the step of faith. God would save them but that's not why they were doing it. They were doing it because it was what they were supposed to do and if God didn't save them, they would do it anyway. With that mindset, they were unstoppable. 

What's my point? A person who accepts the cost of possible failure and determines it is not high enough to justify losing the benefit of possible success cannot fail. This is especially true for a Christian who has received a Word from God. Our faith is in God's Word and we know it is dead if we don't do something with it. If you have a Word from God and refuse to take a risk to carry it out because the cost of failure is too high you won't see the Word come to pass. On top of that, don't forget that there's an eternal cost for disobedience that is unaccounted for in a typical earthly risk analysis. 

Like Esther who knew that she would die anyway, we need to remember to consider all potential outcomes, including eternal ones. In the Parable of the Kingdom when the master held his servants accountable for his investments, the one who didn't take a chance still paid a high price. He may have saved himself from losing his master's money but instead, he lost his master's trust and that was worse. Then after losing his master’s trust, he still lost his master’s money because his master took it back and gave it to someone else. What are you afraid of more? Losing God's investment in your life or losing God's trust? When you don’t step out on faith, you lose both.
