“Today, if you hear His voice do not harden your hearts … as you did that day in the desert … ” And the Spirit says, “They have not known My ways … So I declared in My anger, they will never enter My rest!” Psalm 95
Mat 13:41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers (Rev 14:18 [An] angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.”), Mat 13:42 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Mat 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
A swinging sickle from On-High will look quite violent this year! Believe in God, trust in King Jesus’ deliverance! He is sorting things out unto a new and better expression of His Bride in the earth, reforming the Church to penetrate and shine through the darkness!
We both woke on 12-1-2022 hearing this same lyric in our hearts, from the same song/Psalm.
After the churning of the great sea in Daniel 7, destruction visits the earth that changes the course of history.
The Jeremiah 6, “fruit of their schemes,” amazingly refers to Fed Chair Powell’s speech/actions the day before, 11-30-2022, exasperating the current stock market super bubble.
We can be encouraged that God has set a boundary so that destruction’s reach can only go so far. I do not believe this is the end of time, but it is abundantly clear to Susan and I that the world is racing toward The End, when The Man Comes Around.
The other attachments are mere supplements. I note that even the author of the crash comparison charts (Michael Kramer, not Jim Cramer) is losing confidence in their significance. But in light of the insights I am asserting, I think the charts will end up holding water.
Jesus comes to judge with equity. Before He gets here, whatever came out of the churned-by-heaven great sea will prepare the Way for Him, bringing down the lofty. A catalyst for a great Kingdom harvest like 9/11 scored me and like the many, many I saw saved through Hurricane Katrina disaster relief ministry.
The cynic in me says that the U.S. President’s Executive Order 14067 is meant to be the solution to the man-made disaster, centralized digital banking for everyone … with total government control, mark of the beast stuff. My two cents, hope it’s worthless. Go figure, the E.O. goes into effect the next time Fed Chair Powell is scheduled to act to ‘fix’ things, 12/13(& 14)/2022.
When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverb 21:15
Just prior to leaving Facebook, click to enlarge:
“But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. And you also must bear witness…” Jesus Christ, John 15:26-27.
Below, a record of my communion in the Spirit of Jesus Christ minus all political preferences (and including truthful dates/events) as a progression of the October 2020 Facebook message/post above, including, “God is always working what is right (rescue) for ALL who are oppressed (Psalm 103:6).” May God bless:
7-26-2022 Psa 2:1 Why are the nations in an uproar, and their people involved in a vain plot? Psa 2:2 As the kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers conspire together against the LORD and his anointed, they say, Psa 2:3 “Let us tear off their shackles, and cast off their restraints.” Psa 2:4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Psa 2:5 In his anger he rebukes them, and in his wrath he terrifies them: Psa 2:6 “I have set my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” Psa 2:7 I announce the decree of the LORD that he told me: “You are my son … I have become your father. Psa 2:8 Ask of me, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the ends of the earth as your possession. Psa 2:9 You will break them with an iron rod, you will shatter them like pottery.” Psa 2:10 Therefore, kings, act wisely! Earthly rulers, be warned! Psa 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Psa 2:12 Kiss (worship) the son before he becomes angry, and you die where you stand (or, perish in your own way). Indeed, his wrath can flare up quickly. How blessed are those who take refuge in him.
7-28-2022, awakened by, “I will rescue you” (Lauren Daigle). Isa 14:5 The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of rulers…
Isa 14:24 The LORD of hosts has sworn: “As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand, Isa 14:25 that I will break the Assyrian (oppression) in my land, and on my mountains trample him underfoot; and his yoke shall depart from them, and his burden removed from their shoulder.” Isa 14:26 This is the plan that is purposed concerning the whole earth, and this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations. Isa 14:27 For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back?
8-2-2022, election day in Arizona. Isa 28:5 At that time, the LORD of the Heavenly Armies will become a glorious crown (Acts 2:3), a beautiful diadem for the remnant of his people, Isa 28:6 and a spirit of justice to the one who sits in judgment, a source of strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.
8-5-2022, awakened by, “I was living a lie, until You. I’m coming alive, with You!” (from “Amen,” by For King & Country), AZ election results announced. Isa 52:9 Break forth together into singing, you ruins of Jerusalem; for the LORD has comforted his people, and he has redeemed Jerusalem.
And, Isa 52:10 The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.
8-6-2022, awakened by, “You will fulfill Your promise to me, that I will rise in Your victory” (from “Take Courage,” by Kristene DiMarco). Isa 9:1 … there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled … but in the future he will honor … Isa 9:2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. Isa 9:3 You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil. Isa 9:4 … the rod of the oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian.
8-15-2022, awakened by a vision: I saw smoke circulating among tall, dry grass. (Day before Wyoming elections.) Psa 59:5 You, LORD God of the Heavenly Armies, God of Israel, stir yourself up … Show no mercy to those wicked traitors. (note: I didn’t go looking for a Word to link to any election this day; just same as always, “Speak to me, Lord, I am listening for You.”)
8-16-2022, awakened by, “He’s rolling up His sleeves again!” (from “Help is on the Way,” by Toby Mac). Election day in Wyoming. Isa 30:18Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
Isa 30:26 The LORD binds up the bruises of his people, and heals the wounds he inflicted.
Isa 31:4 For thus the LORD said to me, “As a lion or a young lion growls over his prey, and when a band of shepherds is called out against him he is not terrified by their shouting or daunted at their noise, so the LORD of hosts will come down to fight on Mount Zion and on its hill. Isa 31:5 Like birds hovering, so the LORD of hosts will protect Jerusalem; he will protect and deliver it; he will spare and rescue it.”
Isa 30:30 And the LORD will cause his majestic voice to be heard and the descending blow of his arm to be seen, in furious anger and a flame of devouring fire, with a cloudburst and storm and hailstones. Isa 30:32 And every stroke of the appointed staff that the LORD lays on them will be to the sound of tambourines and lyres. Battling with brandished arm, he will fight them.
8-22-2022, awakened by, “Fix my eyes on You!” (by For King & Country) Isa 62:11 See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him and his work before him.
Isa 62:1 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch.
Isa 61:11 For just as the soil brings forth its shoots, and as a garden makes what is sown within it spring up, so the LORD God will make righteousness and praise spring up before all the nations.
8-23-2022, awakened by a lyric I hadn’t heard in the Spirit since August 16th (that is, WY election day), “He’s rolling up His sleeves again!” Election day in Florida. Isa 49:3 He said to me, “You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”
Isa 49:8 Thus says the LORD: “In a time of favor I have answered you; in a day of salvation I have helped you…”
Luke 1:45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord. Luke 1:46 … “My soul magnifies the Lord, Luke 1:47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, Luke 1:48 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; Luke 1:49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. Luke 1:50 And his mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation. Luke 1:51 He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; Luke 1:52 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate; Luke 1:53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty. Luke 1:54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, Luke 1:55 as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”
8-24-2022 Psa 50:1 The Mighty One, God the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. Psa 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth. Psa 50:3 Our God comes; he does not keep silent; before him is a devouring fire, around him a mighty tempest.
8-30-2022 Sometimes with God, the human response to His exalted Word determines how the upcoming Season(s) will unfold. (Jer. 18:1-10)
In faith, please celebrate a wonderful August in the Lord (past) with us! “Behold, this we have searched out; it is true. Hear, and know it for your good,” Job 5:27.
First and always, He is worthy to receive our/your abandoned adoration without regard to one’s own preferences or perceptions, a unifier (Psalm 50:23). Heartfelt celebration, now, of God’s Sovereignty, Providence & Word fulfills righteousness and thereby renews your strength to better withstand what is ahead. Logic suggests we are all about to witness a huge spiritual CONFRONTATION between good and evil … and we want you up close, personal and totally syncing with Jesus via His Holy Spirit! Please, draw near to God now and He will draw near to you, HalleluYah!
“In fact, unless that time of calamity is shortened, not a single person will survive. But it will be shortened for the sake of God’s chosen ones.” Jesus Christ, Matthew 24:22 (NLT)
Getting tired or weary, walking around in this land of deepest darkness?
Say to those who have an anxious heart, ‘Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance; with divine retribution, He will come and save you.’Isaiah 35:4
Keep vacating all (needs, desires, preferences, complaints, etc.) to visit with Jesus by spending time in His Word, in faith that He is meeting you there by His Spirit, to Help you and Counsel you and Correct you and Encourage you and Position you [for what’s ahead] – and so much more, even using you to scatter the darkness!
Psa 149:1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the godly! Psa 149:2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King! Psa 149:3 Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre! Psa 149:4 For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation. Psa 149:5 Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds for this honor. Psa 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword (the Word of God, Ephesians 6:17) in their hands (power, i.e., words), Psa 149:7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples, Psa 149:8 to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, Psa 149:9 to execute on them the judgment written against them – this is the glory of all his faithful people. Praise the LORD!
A Christmas 2021 report via pictures and captions, from our 501c3 (Bethesda Ministries), click here.
Literally thousands of dollars in charity were distributed where it counts in December 2021 … and each month throughout the year.
On 12/31/2020, I published Isaiah 33 as ‘the Word of the Lord’ regarding 2021. I don’t regret it and believe parts of the chapter were specifically made plain to the whole world this year.
John 1:5, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (or, “…has not understood it”).
Today I humbly declare Psalm 37 as ‘the Word of the Lord’ regarding 2022. You can expect to see specific parts of the chapter made very plain to the whole world in coming weeks and months. You should definitely dive into the chapter, expecting the Almighty to meet you there, hold your hand and walk you through its glorious benefits in 2022!!!
Happy New Year!
thru Jesus’ Glorifying-His-Word Name, Robert & Susan Totman, Bethesda Ministries.
Without the Light of the world (Jesus Christ) shining at EVERY opportunity, the darkness you’ve been witnessing will continue to grow worse. Thank you in advance for helping our righteous cause.
All donations are tax-deductible!
UPDATE, July 2021: Praise be to God, who provides everything necessary to fulfill His will! The furnance replacement project is fully funded and underway, the Gospel of Jesus FREE to continue being propagated at the Church in Michigan, ND!
Below is a love-letter my wife wrote to our missionaries behind bars, to encourage their shine in the darkest of environments. Note, she didn’t fault-find and hate-on current worldly authorities as so many “Christians” did during the previous U.S. presidency (thereby castrating their own power for positive change). I love my wife, thanking God for her. He deserves all the glory.
Proverbs 17:11, “Evildoers foster rebellion against God; the messenger of death will be sent against them.” People, for the sake of you being woke, I hereby inform you that America has entered a form of “the deepest darkness.” This will become more and more evident in due time UNLESS sufficient number of Christians get with God’s program / activity to save. If you understood the deepest darkness revealed to us, you’d be grasping for Light like never before.
In my seeking Him recently He did put on my heart to share with you something He just helped me with. I don’t share for fantastic excitement, but for us to continually see through the veil that was torn into where God reveals truth & wonders & strategies to those who are HIS, whose HEARTs are LOYAL to Him! (His Priests, His Prophets, His Kings & His Warriors) So, together, we can bring our Father’s Heavenly Kingdom / Rule into the earth, enjoying its benefits.
With all of the recent events on the world stage, those events have tried to completely capture everyone’s attention. It’s like a bad, bad freak show most days, hard to see any good reasoning behind most of what is going on. Some of the issues seem to be meant to cause harm, fear, pain, panic, injury, injustice, oppression & persecution. Whose “fruit” does that sound like? Stuff from heaven? (Uuh NO!) It’s definitely from a darker place. My heart was so burdened one day, I had a deep burning desire in me to add my spiritual strength to the POWER & FORCE (for good) of what God (& His angel’s) were accomplishing NOW throughout the earth. I relayed this sentiment to my oldest son, with tears in my eyes, while gripping my heart/chest. I told him my heart’s cry to the Lord this morning was, “Lord, what MORE can I do to support what You are DOING? Use me, Father, to aid & assist Your heavenly Host to bring YOUR righteousness & YOUR justice to Victory!” I know the Lord doesn’t “need” my help, but my help (faith, worship & prayers) does serve His pleasure (the LORD & His purposes)! A little while later I was brushing my teeth thinking about my conversation with my son…& I had a vision: Suddenly, I saw a sword in front of me, I was holding IT in MY HANDS! It was LARGE (about 3 inches wide x 3 feet long) & had a white LIGHT glowing from within the sword, shinning around the full edge of the blade & it was on FIRE! Yep! A flaming, glowing sword in my hand! With the sight came the Voice of Holy Spirit saying, “YOU ARE SWINGING THIS SWORD IN THE SPIRIT EVERY TIME YOU PRAY!” I was left with an impression to keep praying, I could perceive an impression relaying… “You ARE helping the forces of good & giving them aid! You ARE being effective! Keep taking up the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God & USING it!” It revealed the importance of praying every time Holy Spirit prompts my spirit to intercede over ANY matter. We can all take comfort to our souls to understand what our actions in the natural “look like” in the spirit; we all have the Sword of the Spirit thru faith in Jesus, the Living Word. NOW, when I pray I can see in my minds eye the SWORD that IS IN MY HANDS, my AUTHORITY in Jesus’ name, that God has given me. I choose to swing that spiritual flaming sword at the enemies of my God, in Jesus’ name. Our prayers are very valuable to God & His Kingdom! Now, more than ever we are to be LASER SHARP FOCUSED ON THE HEART OF GOD in our prayers! There is an attack that we can see with our eyes happening in the world around us, we have a responsibility to not be sleeping on the side lines but be in the spiritual battle beside Jesus on the battlefield! No joke, its time to do what we have been prepared for. We have more POWER flowing through our prayers than any force we can see with our natural eyes. Remember Jesus telling the wind & waves to be still & it OBEYED HIM. We are to speak to the things of this world and the heavenly realms (Eph. 3:10), relaying the Heart & Will of God in our prayers about them. I know you know these things. 😊 I’m just stirred up, I guess. LOL! Its REVIVAL TIME!!! Be busy harvesting in the field beside Jesus and while you’re at it, keep your spiritual sword AT THE READY because YOU ARE TAKING GROUND, SOULS & PLUNDER FROM THE devil for the KINGDOM of HEAVEN ALONG THE WAY!
Just a few scriptures that have been healing & helpful to keep our King in focus.
Gal 3:29 And if you belong to the Messiah, then you are Abraham’s descendants indeed, and heirs according to the promise.
Whinners about worldly authorities do not “belong” to Christ, having withheld themselves from the Truth of His Sovereign rule (the benefits of His shed blood. Practically, they deny His sacrifice AND current reign). What “promise” does Galatians 3:29 refer to, for God’s faithful children? Well, “heirs of the blessings of the grace of life, and of the eternal inheritance; of the blessing of justification of life, and of everlasting salvation; of this world and of the world to come; of all the spiritual blessings of the covenant of grace, and of the incorruptible and undefiled inheritance of the saints in light; to which they are begotten through the abundant mercy of God, for which they are made meet by the grace of Christ; and to which they have a right by his justifying righteousness” (John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible).
Deu 28:7 The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.
Psa 125:3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous…
Isa 54:14-15 In righteousness you’ll be established; you will be far from tyranny, for you won’t be afraid, and from terror, for it won’t come near you. Watch! If anyone does attack you, it will not be from me; whoever may attack you will fall because of you.
Psa 149:4 For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation. Psa 149:5 Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. Psa 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands, (can’t do this and whine at the same time!) Psa 149:7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples, Psa 149:8 to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, Psa 149:9 to execute on them the judgment written! This is the glory of all his faithful people. Praise the LORD!
Isa 51:7 Listen to me, you who know righteousness, you people who have my instruction in their hearts. Don’t fear the insults of mortals, and don’t be dismayed at their hateful words. Isa 51:8 For moths will eat them up just like a garment, and worms will devour them like wool; but my deliverance will last forever, and my salvation to all generations. Isa 51:9 “Awake! Awake! Clothe yourself with strength, you arm of the LORD! Awake, as in days gone by, as in generations of long ago. Was it not you who split apart Rehob, who pierced that sea monster through? Isa 51:10 Was it not you who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep, who made a road in the depths of the sea so that the redeemed could cross over?” Isa 51:11 “The scattered ones of the LORD will return, and they will enter Zion with singing. Everlasting joy will be upon their heads; they will attain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isa 51:12 “I—yes, I—am the one who comforts you. Who are you, that you are so afraid of humans who will die, descendants of mere men, who have been made like grass? Isa 51:13 As a result, you have forgotten the LORD who made you, who stretched out the heavens and laid the earth’s foundations, and you live in constant fear every day because of the oppressor’s fury, since he’s ready to destroy. Now where is the oppressor’s fury? Isa 51:14 Distress will quickly be set free. He won’t die in the Pit, nor will he lack food.” Isa 51:15 “For I am the LORD your God, who churns up the sea, so that its waves roar, ‘The LORD of the Heavenly Armies is his name.’ Isa 51:16 I have put my words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of my hand, so that I could plant the heavens and lay the earth’s foundations, to say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’
