2016: A Year For Living With No Fear

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

No Fear - Public Domain2016 is just a few days old, and already there has been a tremendous amount of shaking. Stock markets all over the world are crashing, a huge earthquake just hit India, the middle portion of the United States is dealing with record flooding, Islamic terror continues to spread in the Middle East and elsewhere, and Saudi Arabia has suddenly cut off relations with Iran. Our world is becoming increasingly unstable, and I believe that this is just the beginning. In fact, I am fully convinced that 2016 is going to be an incredibly chaotic year.

So does that mean that we should all cower in fear and try to find somewhere to hide?

Not at all.

My wife and I seek to live our lives in a constant state of “shalom”, which is the Hebrew word for peace. And we believe that 2016 is a year to be lived with no fear whatsoever. Yes, immensely great challenges are coming to this nation. But with great shaking comes great opportunity. In 2016 we believe that there will be incredible opportunities to be a light in the darkness.

We are moving into a time when so many of the things that we have become preoccupied with will fall to the wayside and we will start focusing on what really matters. Many of you have been preparing for the future for many years, and this is going to be the year when those preparations begin to pay off.

When great challenges come, they reveal the true nature of our character. And as things fall apart all around us, people are going to be looking for leaders. To be a leader, sometimes you don’t even have to say anything. People are going to be watching how we respond to the events that are going to be happening this year, and we need to decide right now whether we are going to respond with strength or fear.

If you want to be a leader, you need to be ready to be a rock in the storm. When the waves start crashing all around you, that is the time to set your face like flint and choose not to be moved. Many are going to want to dig a hole and try to hide from the world, but those with courage are going to be running to the front lines instead.

This is what we have been training for.

This is what we have been preparing for.

You were born for such a time as this.

If you look back throughout history, almost all of the heroes that we greatly admire were birthed during times of great crisis. It is when times are the darkest that the light is needed the most. And the hard times that are coming are going to be crying out for strong men and women to arise.

For years, “watchmen on the wall” such as myself have been relentlessly warning about what is coming. In fact, I have been sounding the alarm so loudly and for so long that some of my readers are probably sick of it. But the purpose has never been to “create fear”. I believe that there is hope in understanding what is happening, and I believe that there is hope in getting prepared.

And the truth is that there is very much a spiritual dimension to all of this. For decades, God has been calling America to return to Him, but instead this nation has been feverishly running the other direction. Now a day of reckoning is upon us, and we are going to experience the consequences of decades of very foolish decisions.

In the legal world, there is always a pronouncement of guilt before a judgment is administered. And in 2015 I believe that we were very clearly shown our guilt in a myriad of ways. Some examples include the gay marriage Supreme Court decision, the Ashley Madison scandal, and the undercover Planned Parenthood videos. I don’t believe that it was any accident that those videos came out exactly when they did. The whole world got to see that we are murdering millions of babies, harvesting their body parts and organs, and selling those body parts and organs off to the highest bidder. Those body parts and organs are then used in bizarre scientific experiments, and the federal government is funding the entire thing.

But instead of repenting, Congress just authorized hundreds of millions of dollars of funding for Planned Parenthood for the coming year, and surveys have found that the American people approve of federal funding for Planned Parenthood by about a 2 to 1 margin.

I believe that we were given one last chance to repent in 2015, but instead we chose to shake our fist at God.

Now a great shaking is coming, and I believe that it has already started. Since September, we have seen a very highly unusual series of disasters in America. We have seen horrific flooding in Missouri, South Carolina, Texas and Oregon, a nightmarish wave of wildfires starting at the end of the summer resulted in more acres being burned in this country than ever before, the state of Oklahoma set a brand new all-time record for earthquakes in a single year, a series of very unusual tornadoes just ripped through areas near Dallas, and much of California continues to suffer through the worst multi-year drought in the history of the state.

When we look at the Bible, we see that there is often a progression to judgment. For example, frogs and lice were a couple of the early plagues that hit Egypt in the book of Exodus, but by the end all of the firstborn of the Egyptians were dead. A similar pattern exists in the book of Revelation. Each “shaking” is intended to bring about repentance, and if there is no repentance then more shakings come.

We should be happy that shaking is coming to America, because without shaking I don’t believe that there would be any widespread repentance.

God has been warning us about what is coming, but most of us don’t want to listen.

God sends warnings because He does not want us to fear. He knows everything that is going to happen in advance, He is in control, and He has a plan.

And even in the midst of all the chaos and darkness that is beginning to engulf the world, God is raising up a Remnant.

This Remnant is going to be the army of the last days. It will walk in faith and not in fear. It will boldly take action while others cower. This Remnant is going to become what God always intended His people to be, and it is going to do things that are going to shock the world.

The greatest move of God and the greatest harvest of souls that the world has ever seen are coming. But just because we know what God is going to do in these last days does not mean that we automatically get to be part of it. Now is a time to press in and seek Him like never before. We need to pray that God will pour out His fire on our lives and equip us to be warriors of light in a world that is filled with darkness.

Jesus is coming back for His bride, but right now we are not ready.

Jesus deserves the greatest bride of all. He deserves a bride without spot or wrinkle and that is madly and wildly and passionately in love with Him.

Without Him nothing is possible, but with His help we can become the bride that we were always intended to be.

In 2016, everything changes.

Are you ready?

  • Robert

    As bad as things seem and look, I think they are likely a lot worse than we know. We become numb to evil. It is too much to absorb and understand. People are doing whatever they desire and without consequences. The Chinese visitor who toured the US and said in effect, “when people choose to ignore law and doing right, no amount of law enforcement will be able to space a nation.”

    • Henry

      “Save a nation.” Not space. Apologies.

  • James

    undercover Planned Parenthood videos. I don’t believe that it was any accident that those videos came out exactly when they did. The whole world got to see that we are murdering millions of babies, harvesting their body parts and organs, and selling those body parts and organs off to the highest bidder. Those body parts and organs are then used in bizarre scientific experiments, and the federal government is funding the entire thing.

    No, no, no.The videos were highly edited. All state investigations into PP came out with nothing. PP gets reimbursed for their costs such as shipping but cannot profit off the organs.

    As for bizarre scientific experiments, if making vaccines and organ donors is bizarre, you are really living in the 17th century

    • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

      I watched a couple of those videos (only the edited videos; I tried watching the unedited version but it was long and boring so I quit). It didn’t bother me too much, but I can understand why some people would react with disgust and even horror. Abortion is troubling to begin with: no matter how one looks at it, it is the termination of a human life. And to hear of the disposal of hearts, livers and brains of these once-living human beings , discussed so casually over lunch, is understandably offensive to those who are strongly pro-life. And there was also that former technician who said she had witnessed, at a Planned Parenthood clinic , a brain harvested from a 20 week-old whose heart was still beating. If that is true, then that clinic did something clearly illegal.

  • James

    Congress just authorized hundreds of millions of dollars of funding for Planned Parenthood for the coming year, and surveys have found that the American people approve of federal funding for Planned Parenthood by about a 2 to 1 margin.

    No, no, no.

    Congress did not remove PP from Medicaid/Medicare eligible organization’s list therefore making it eligible for the services it provides.

    Namely STD treatment and testing

    Cancer and anemia screenings

    The federal government does not write a blank check to PP each year, instead it is millions of medicaid/medicare checks.

    The federal government only pays for abortion under three circumstances

    1)Rape

    2)Incest

    3)Direct harm of the mother

    Cutting PP would just make it harder to get cancer screenings and chlamydia testing which would only increase costs because detecting a cancer at Stage I requires much less chemo than a Stage III cancer, antibiotics are cheaper than a service dog because you went blind because of chlamydia

    Yes Missouri, SC, TX
    You know, those states that are very very conservative and religious

    As for OR and CA, those disasters mainly effected rural areas, the areas that were more likely to be religious
    The disasters did not effect urban, which is more likely to be atheist, non-christan, agnostic

    MMMMM

  • James

    God sends warnings because He does not want us to fear. He knows everything that is going to happen in advance, He is in control, and He has a plan.

    If God know everything that would happen in advance that means God knew about the PP videos and which politicans supported PP and which ones hate PP

    Why can’t this all powerful god do something?

    • Guest

      He will do something. The wicked are storing up wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God. He will render to every wicked person according to their deeds.

      “The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.” Proverbs 16:4

      • James

        Why hasnt the Lord done something to Sweden, Finland, Norway, or Denmark
        every nonreligious countries?

        However, the lord has created financial crisies in very catholic Spain and Italy and very Orthodox Greece and Russia.

        Seriously, do you even do a bit of critical thinking

        • Richard

          Has it ever occurred to you that perhaps it’s because those countries are NOT religious that they’ve done so well?

          • James

            Yes

        • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

          The Lord doesn’t have to do anything to them: the’re committing suicide through their low birth rates and admission of hordes of unassimilating immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East. At least Norway got smart and started deporting Muslims with ties to radical groups.

          • James

            The Lord doesn’t have to do anything to them: the’re committing suicide through their low birth rates. Not really, the countries are all implementing pro-natalist policies

          • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

            James, you have this irritating habit of quoting the person to whom you respond. It’s not necessary. You could have simply written: “Those nations are dealing with their low birth rates. They have implemented sensible pro-natalist policies.”

  • rawhunger .

    When I see the firstborn here dying by the “angel of death” in large numbers, THEN I’ll repent. Until then… your God has nothing for me.

    • Guest

      No you won’t. Only the Lord can change your heart and cause you to repent.

      ” And he [the rich man in hell] said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” Luke 16:30-31

      We have to not only be ready but also endure. It is not going to get any easier. It going to get more and more difficult. Prepare, pray and endure!

  • suqsiq

    Maybe all the earthquakes because of all the cubic miles of oil and other materials being pulled out of the earth results in DESTABILIZATION.
    A lot of this ends up in the atmosphere.

  • Pam Simms

    Thank you Michael, you speak the truth.

  • Scott

    2 Timothy 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    • Richard

      How do you know that?

  • Mike

    Isaiah 26:20-21 (ESV)

    20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,
    and shut your doors behind you;
    hide yourselves for a little while
    until the fury has passed by.
    21 For behold, the Lord is coming out from his place
    to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity,
    and the earth will disclose the blood shed on it,
    and will no more cover its slain.

  • MaxRockatansky33

    It is really sarcastic that those disasters have hit so called Bible Belt.

  • DJohn1

    Making a list, checking it twice, going to find out which congress people are naughty and nice.
    That should be the theme for the coming elections. Including which presidential candidates have voted for or against planned parenthood. The ultimate cop out is not to vote at all.
    Wake up America!
    For far too long, these politicians have gotten away with criminal behavior and placed their hands in our wallets.
    The Bible wisely says, There is a time and a place for everything.
    The time is quickly approaching that how a person votes in Congress will mean more than the speeches they make.
    IF it all comes crashing down, we need to know our peace of mind is in our worship and what we worship.
    IF it is money, then we are truly lost. IF it is God, then we will work our way through it.
    It was bankers that committed suicide in the 30s.
    No matter how well one prepares, ultimately our fates are tied to our beliefs in God.
    Out of chaos eventually will come order. The important thing is to never give up. Hopefully all of us that believe will come through the coming times untouched.

  • Kim

    In fact, I have been sounding the alarm so loudly and for so long that some of my readers are probably sick of it. .

    I am not sick of it. I know what’s coming. I too have been labeled by my family as “unstable”‘and “negative”. I am not going to lie and say I am totally without fear. I know it’s going to get ugly. And it will be scary. It is already. I spent time in the EU is several countries and I found myself in Frankfurt in the wrong place at the wrong time and I was afraid. That said, I look forward in many ways to what is coming because then maybe we will have a chance to get back to a life that we were meant to live. Right now, normal life is difficult if not impossible. There is so much fraud in the economy and it only benefits a few while the rest pay for it and it makes life very difficult. I look forward to the future with hope, not fear. But these are still fearful, difficult times. Jesus never said it would be easy. He called it “tribulation” even using the term “great” and “unlike anything man have ever seen or will ever see again” and I believe that. But we can only endure to the end with God’s help.

    • GoldenGirl

      So well said, Kim.

      • Kim

        Thank you :-)

    • Daddyotis

      Thanks Kim, for your words of truth. I can relate to be “the one” in my family looked upon as unstable and/or negative. It’s a struggle sometimes, but more and more I am certain that I am on the right track toward God’s kingdom. Bless you.

    • iris

      Amen!

    • Uncle Rufus (no relation)

      Frankfurt? Hope you knew how to kick ´em in the nuttes!

      In general, at least there is hope, hope that when combined with unforseen events, the system that has caused so much harm will not able to survive the coming collapse…

  • Sonoran

    Im making a huge generalization with the following but follow along;

  • Sonoran

    Im making a huge generalization with the following but…:

    For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

    I have noticed that the traditional conservative states go through a lot of natural disasters compared to the godless, leftist, heathen state. The verse above puts things in perspective.

    God will judge all of America ( and the world) but judgement will begin with the household of God first, so as to awaken many, until the right time to judge the heathens.

    • Pandadude12345

      It is likely that These natural disasters are engineered by HAARP.

      • James

        So it is by your own admission
        HAARP not God

        • Pandadude12345

          No God’s natural will is being manipulated. Look it up. Why would it attack ONLY Christians?!

          • James

            You would have to be delusional. Who in government benefits from decreased Christianity?
            I know. High rank government officials like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. (SARC)

            Also HAARP is not only attacking Christians. Flooding in India (Hindu), Flooding in Pakistan (Muslim), etc

  • Rufus T Firefly

    Nothing to fear with Barack Obama as President and Hillary taking over in 381 days

    • iris

      Or Rubio, the GOP equivalent of same ol’ same ol’. We’ve had 2 terms of Donkiphants. Now, possibly, we’ll have another 2 terms of Eledonks. The pendulum appears to swing, but those of us who are watching, see that it appears to swing incrementally, but consistently, to the left. Aside from doing away with the electoral college and going to a popular vote with actual paper trails, we the people won’t be heard. Regardless, whether we care to admit it or not, God is in control, but we as individuals can be brave, accountable, and keep our heads despite the craziness.

    “much of California continues to suffer through the worst multi-year drought in the history of the state”
    because of chemtrails?

    excerpt from a wonderful little book, Green Leaf in Drought Time, true accounts of the last 5 foreign missionaries left in China in the 1950s. This is a poem one of them quoted by Amy Carmichael:

    On the far reef the breakers
    Recoil in shattered foam,
    Yet still the sea behind them
    Urges its forces home;
    Its chant of triumph surges
    Through all the thunderous din.
    The wave may break in failure,
    BUT THE TIDE IS SURE TO WIN.

    O mighty sea, thy message
    in changing spray is cast;
    Within God’s plan of progress
    It matters not at last
    How wide the shores of evil
    How strong the reefs of sin.
    The wave may be defeated,
    BUT THE TIDE IS SURE TO WIN

    We can rest in His love and promises, regardless of what happens in this world, which is passing away soon, like those breakers. Things can only go so far, the trouble will end for good, in Him.

  • desert nudist

    I bet there wasn’t any eunuchs involved with the Ashley Madison scandel LOL!

  • Margaret Khan

    I think you are mistaken in thinking that the “natural” disasters are a sign from God. The art of moderating the weather has been around for quite a while and most floods, hurricanes, droughts, and even tornadoes are at least influenced up or down (in this case up) by our loving government with the object of reducing America to poverty before a takeover by the totalitarians.

  • Charles Reece

    Michael, I just happen to be a resident of Washington, DC — the very city of which you have made publically known where you work as an attorney. Just by coincidence, with myself living in the nation’s capital, the Lord has likewise called me to be a “Watchman on the Wall”, just as yourself. I agree with everything that you state in your article above. And I will pray that the Lord will continue to give you “revelation” as to what’s coming upon America; just as the Lord has given me much revelation of His inevitable “judgments” upon our wicked nation, for this nation’s continued REFUSAL to repent of sin, and thus, the continued utter REJECTION of Jesus Christ.

  • RedSky

    For those still unbelieving souls, it will be a year where they will be forced to face truths that will make them uncomfortable.
