To God be the glory!
Nothing demonstrates the glory of God to me in nature more than the wondrous northern lights dancing overhead, filling the entire sky!
Walking through the Redwoods is my #2 most awesome. And the flight over the 50-mile-long Ruth glacier in front of Denali is #3.
I’ve actually had some AMAZING supernatural experiences in the presence of God that top these natural experiences, including when the angels sung during the Rodney Howard-Browne meetings in Anchorage, 1993.
The coming spiritual revival will be AWESOME!
I do like this “Open Heart” image a lot!
JOY OF NATURE
Here’s a short video of the best northern lights I saw on my 18-night springtime Aurora Hunt to the Brooks Range of Northern Alaska in early April, 2020. Hope you can feel the real-time JOY, and please feel free to share!

Kick demon butt! Our warfare is against demons, not people. But the demons are often in people!
Sometimes, one has to crank it up, and pray strongly in the Spirit. Spiritual warfare. Power to the Peaceful!

“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are not mad; you are not like us.'” – St. Anthony the Great ~ 254-356 A.D.
Tertullian, writing in 197 AD, talks about what church was like.
Tertullian, The Apology, Chapter 39
We are a body knit together as such by a common religious profession, by unity of discipline, and by the bond of a common hope. We meet together as an assembly and congregation, that, offering up prayer to God as with united force, we may wrestle with Him in our supplications. This strong exertion God delights in. We pray, too, for the emperors, for their ministers and for all in authority, for the welfare of the world, for the prevalence of peace, for the delay of the final consummation.
We assemble to read our sacred writings, if any peculiarity of the times makes either forewarning or reminiscence needful. However it be in that respect, with the sacred words we nourish our faith, we animate our hope, we make our confidence more steadfast; and no less by inculcations of God’s precepts we confirm good habits.
In the same place also exhortations are made, rebukes and sacred censures are administered. For with a great gravity is the work of judging carried on among us, as befits those who feel assured that they are in the sight of God; and you have the most notable example of judgment to come when anyone has sinned so grievously as to require his severance from us in prayer, in the congregation and in all sacred intercourse. The tried men of our elders preside over us, obtaining that honour not by purchase but by established character.
There is no buying and selling of any sort in the things of God. Though we have our treasure-chest, it is not made up of purchase-money, as of a religion that has its price. [Old covenant tithing not practiced – ed.] On the monthly day, if he likes, each puts in a small donation; but only if it be his pleasure, and only if he be able: for there is no compulsion; all is voluntary. These gifts are, as it were, piety’s deposit fund. For they are not taken thence and spent on feasts, and drinking-bouts, and eating-houses, but to support and bury poor people, to supply the wants of boys and girls destitute of means and parents, and of old persons confined now to the house; such, too, as have suffered shipwreck; and if there happen to be any in the mines or banished to the islands or shut up in the prisons, for nothing but their fidelity to the cause of God’s Church, they become the nurslings of their confession.
But it is mainly the deeds of a love so noble that lead many to put a brand upon us. See, they say, how they love one another, for they themselves are animated by mutual hatred. See, they say about us, how they are ready even to die for one another, for they themselves would sooner kill.

Jesus in John 15
18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, since I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his lord.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. 21 But they will do all these things to you for my name’s sake, because they don’t know him who sent me.”
Jesus in Mark 13:13
“You will be hated by all men for my name’s sake, but he who endures to the end, the same will be saved.”
BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU. BLESS AND CURSE NOT. PRAY FOR THEM WHO PERSECUTE YOU.
1 Corinthians 4:13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
Romans 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

FL Pastor Arrested for Holding Church Service
Mar 30, 2020
TAMPA, FL – Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne, pastor of The River at Tampa Bay Church, was arrested at his home today by Hernando County Sheriff Deputies for holding a church service yesterday. …
Pastor Howard-Browne and the church took extra precautions for the church meeting yesterday, including:
- Enforced the six-foot distance between family groups in the auditorium as well as the overflow rooms;
- All the staff wore gloves;
- Every person who entered the church received hand sanitizer;
- In the farmer’s market and coffee shop in the lobby, the six-foot distance was enforced with the floor specifically marked (farmer’s markets and produce stands are expressly exempted);
- The church spent $100,000 on a hospital grade purification system set up throughout the church that provides continuous infectious microbial reduction (CIMR) that is rated to kill microbes, including those in the Coronavirus family.
“A true prophet calls people to repent. The fear of the Lord should be a strong feature of their message and ministry. It is more than loving Jesus and having gifts in operation.”
“By the way, I don’t claim to be a prophet. But I dare to say this as a Bible teacher.”
It may be the Devil, or it may be the Lord, but you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Good points, but something significant is missing.
Notice that Michael Brown at minute-1:40 does not include the important third verse in James’ healing passage in chapter 5, that says we must confess our sins one to another to be righteous, to be healed.
14 Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, 15 and the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective.
It should go without saying that the elders who are praying have also confessed their sins to one another, so are clean, according to the elders’ qualifications that require them to be “blameless” and “holy,” and Paul’s own example in Acts 24:16:
“Herein I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.”
I’m finding out that more often than not, those who quote this James-5;14 passage usually leave out this crucial verse 16. Unless one has reconciled with everyone they know they should, verse 16 is an uncomfortable passage that many avoid. But we must not. Lack of reconciliation and holiness is probably the main reason why so few are healed today, unless the illness is demon caused, because it’s fairly easy to drive out demons.
We often hear “Life is short… you better enjoy it!”
How about “Eternity is long… you better prepare for it!”
39:00 “Think about this: if every time somebody died from the flu was reported in the media, like they are reporting the coronavirus, the whole world would be in lockdown every flu season. … A constant barrage. … Around 50,000 die in this country every year from the flu. If they treated the flu the same way they are treating the coronavirus, the way they talk about it on the media, seriously, the entire world would be in lockdown every flu season. This is a deliberate hype of the media to instill abject fear and panic in the people.”
1:04:00 “By closing their services, churches have declared themselves to be nonessential services. … Churches have less courage and conviction about God’s work than the baby butchers at Planned Parenthood have about the Devil’s work.”
COVID-19 truth begins at 36:30
Very good, except most “Christians” have a good reason to fear, because most “Christians” are not abiding in Christ.
Most Christians fear because they actually feel condemnation because they’re not right with God and people, like Paul always practiced (Acts 24:16). There is only “no condemnation” to those who actually abide in Christ, walking not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit (Rom. 8:1 in non-gutted Bibles, and laid out in Romans 8:1-17 in all Bibles). That’s why pastors and K-LOVE work so hard to try to convince born-again Christians that they’re okay with God, because most don’t feel okay because they’re not okay.
“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT” – Romans 8:1.
“Herein I also practice ALWAYS having a CONSCIENCE VOID OF OFFENSE toward God and men” (Acts 24:16).
The “who shall separate us” promise in Romans 8:35 and “no condemnation” statement in verse 1 only applies to those who actually are “in Christ” based upon what Paul says in four different ways in verses 1-17:
Verse 1b: “who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
Verse 4b: “who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Verse 13: “For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live..”
Verse 14: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.”
Verse 17b: “joint-heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him.”
WE MUST ABANDON THE FLESH AND WALK IN THE SPIRIT
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Catholics take a verse form the Apocrypha and misinterpret one verse from Revelation to justify praying to people who died, whom they venerate.
This is totally unscriptural, and could open doors to demons, which praying to Mary can also do.
We’re only allowed to pray to God Himself.
This is messed up!
