 "One Word From God
Can Change Your Life Forever!"
 
  
     I am so challenged by this Month's Teaching.  I just want to be transparent from the beginning.  For, as I study and write to you, I am also writing to myself and my heart.  This Teaching is truly from God's Heart, to my heart, to yours, Beloved.  There is indeed many Prophetic Signs and Events that have been streaming throughout the World.  And I have brought so many things before The Lord to minister to you about.  Yet, the one thing that He keeps bringing me to is what we will pay our attention to this Month.
 
WHAT'S IT GOING
TO TAKE
?
 
     The Holy Spirit revealed something to me a while back.  Something that has been in front of my eyes for many years, I just didn't see it, until this time in history.  I want to begin by bringing notice to three men of God in The Bible, Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel.

     Jeremiah faithfully spoke the Messages of God to His People for forty (40) years!  He stood before Kings, Religious Leaders, false prophets and The People of God for years telling them to repent and to obey what God was telling them to do.  The Message was repeated over and over, Repent From Sin, Turn To God and Obey Him!
 
   "Again the Lord spoke to me and said: 2 Go and shout this in Jerusalem's streets: This is what the Lord says!  I remember how eager you were to please me as a young bride long ago, how you loved me and followed me even through the barren deserts. 3 In those days Israel was a holy people, the first of my children. . . "
                                  Jeremiah 2:1-3 (TLB)
 
"Your wickedness will punish you; your backsliding will rebuke you.  Consider then and realize how evil and bitter it is for you when you forsake the Lord your God and have no awe of me," declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty."
                                 Jeremiah 2:19 (NIV)
 
 
 
      The People began and continued to sin and did not listen to the Prophet of God.  The People lost their passion and love for God and refused to repent.  Jeremiah witnessed The Temple that King Solomon was used by God to build, burn down.  He saw firsthand Jerusalem fall and Her People being taken into captivity.  Jeremiah was abused so many times through his Ministry and was taken prisoner also.  Jeremiah still wrote to the People of God, Messages from God that was now in captivity while he himself was prisoner too.
        
 
ASSIGNMENT:  SERVICE
TO THE KING
 
     Now, also during these series of raids, the taking of the People of God and the destruction of Jerusalem and The Temple of God by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, there was another Prophet who was selected to minister in the Courts of King Nebuchadnezzar.  Daniel, a captive and youth was chosen to be trained to serve in the King's palace.

"And the [Babylonian] king told Ashpenaz, the master of his eunuchs, to bring in some of the children of Israel, both of the royal family and of the nobility - 4 Youths without blemish, well-favored in appearance and skillful in all wisdom, discernment, and understanding, apt in learning knowledge, competent to stand and serve in the king's palace . . . They were to be so educated and so nourished for three years that at the end of that time they might stand before the king." Daniel 1:3-5 (AMP)  
 
     The People of God and Daniel were enslaved and made to travel a very difficult 500 mile journey to Babylon.  Daniel did not know when he was making that journey that he would be used of God to become a counselor to the King of Babylon.  The King tried to change the thinking and beliefs of Daniel, but even though he had to face the death verdict of the Lion's Den for not obeying the laws of the King, he faced those trials with faith and obedience in God . . . and was rescued!  (Daniel 6)
 
3RD PROPHET ASSIGNED DURING THE DESTRUCTION
 
     Also living in this time was a man named Ezekiel who was training to be a Priest at The Temple of God in Jerusalem when the Babylonians attacked The City and The Temple and took Ezekiel along with 10,000 others.  An enormous amount of God's People would be taken into captivity.  Ezekiel would become a Prophet to the captives in Babylon.  His life was a literal "visual aid" to the Messages that God would send His People while they were in captivity.  Ezekiel was asked by God to be obedient in some very hard ways in order to communicate God's Messages to the Prophet of Israel that were taken captive because of their disobedience.
 
Only Could Speak Messages From God
and Nothing Else
 
     "Then the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet. He spoke to me and said: "Go, shut yourself inside your house. 25 And you, son of man, they will tie with ropes; you will be bound so that you cannot go out among the people. 26 I will make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth so that you will be silent and unable to rebuke them, for they are a rebellious people. 27 But when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you shall say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign Lord says. 'Whoever will listen let them listen, and whoever will refuse let them refuse; for they are a rebellious people."
                                 Ezekiel 3:24-27 (NIV)  
  
Ezekiel Laid On His Left Side 390 Days
 For Israel's 390 Years of Iniquity
  
"Then [bound as you are] lie upon your left [and north] side to bear symbolically the iniquity of the house of the ten tribes of Israel upon that side. According to the number of days that you shall lie upon it you shall bear their iniquity. 5 For I have laid upon you the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, 390 days [representing 390 years]: so you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Israel."
Ezekiel 4:4-5 (AMP) 
    
 
Then Ezekiel Laid 40 Days On His
Right
Side For Judah's Iniquity
 
 
"And when you have fulfilled the days for Israel, lie again, but on your right [and south] side, and you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days. I have appointed you one day for each year." Ezekiel 4:6 (AMP) 
  
     Ezekiel was also asked to demonstrate Messages of God to Israel by having to cook over cow dung or waste (the People of God would experience their food and water being rationed and they would "waste" away.) (Ezekiel 4:15);  Ezekiel shaved his beard and head to demonstrate various examples of Israel's rebellion and rejection of God's Commands. (Ezekiel 5:1-5);  And yet, Ezekiel was asked to obey God to visually minister a Message from God to the People by not mourning for his wife's death. (Ezekiel 24:16-18)
  
     I am amazed at the Ministry of Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel and how they never gave up even when it was tremendously difficult for them.  Each one conducting and continuing their Ministries at parallel Times even when their Temple was destroyed and burned and they were taken captives themselves!  Each one serving in their Assignments under difficult conditions, under evil leadership and in an incredible time in Israel's History!  All serving the People during this critical and hopeless Time in History!


             
ALL THREE, AT THE
 SAME TIME!
 
 
 
     How I am amazed!  God had all three of these devoted men and Prophets during the destruction of Jerusalem and The Temple and the captivity of God's People at different places and with their own assignments and Ministries . . . ALL BEING USED TO EVENTUALLY CHANGE HISTORY BACK FOR THE GOOD OF GOD'S PEOPLE AND JERUSALEM!
  

And what is even more astonishing IS THAT ALL
THREE WERE USED TO PROPHESY BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FIRST TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM . . .

AND ALL THREE PROPHESIED ABOUT THE DAYS THAT WE ARE LIVING IN NOW RIGHT BEFORE THE TEMPLE IS REBUILT IN JERUSALEM, THE DAYS DURING THE TEMPLE'S OPERATION AND THEN IT'S DESTRUCTION AGAIN BY THE ANTI-CHRIST!

 
     These three faithful Servants of God (Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel) all seen a People who were so caught up in the customs, thinking and ideals of the World around them that they came to a place of rebellion and did not want to change.  They witnessed an unrepented People, and an evil "Ruler" (Nebuchadnezzar) come and "take over" and destroy The Temple of God and devastate The City of Jerusalem.  They saw these things happen in their present Time and they saw the Time that is right ahead of us! 
 
     A Temple for God's People will again be built in the Holy Land of Israel.  And The Bible tells us that there will be daily sacrifices being done there again.  For two thousand years there has not been a Temple.  Today the Mosque of Omar (the Dome of the Rock) sits on top of the holy mountain in Jerusalem.  Daniel 11:31 (CEV) tells us that the Antichrist (another evil "Ruler") will then take over and defile that Temple that will be built and use it for his new evil headquarters and place of worship and demand loyalty and obedience to himself, "He will send troops to pollute the temple and the fortress, and he will stop the daily sacrifices. Then he will set up that "Horrible Thing" that causes destruction." 
  
      And in Matthew 24:15 (AMP) we read, "So when you see the appalling sacrilege [that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place - let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed [this]."  Some people will refuse to repent and turn to God and because of their rebellion, will be enslaved by the Antichrist and be taken to serve in his kingdom.  The enslavement that the rebellious people experienced under King Nebuchadnezzar will be NOTHING compared to what these individuals will experience FOREVER with the Antichrist and the devil.
 
     The things that Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel saw have all been put in print by God for us in The Bible and is referenced numerous times in the Book of Revelation, which is now beginning to unfold before our very eyes.  All three saw and experienced The Destruction that was in their day and yet, they all three saw The Destruction that is ahead and is beginning to shape.
 
     In addition, all three men were used by God in Dreams, Visions and Illustrations.  All three (Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel) were given Dreams, Visions and Illustrations for THEN and for us NOW!  In the Last Days, The Bible tells us that Prophetic Ministry, Dreams and Visions of God will be used, "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on my servants, both men and women, will I pour out my Spirit in those days." (Joel 2:28-29 (NIV))  These avenues of Ministry were used by all three of these men for their Time and for our Time.  Prophecy, Dreams and Visions were used to WARN THE PEOPLE!  And just like many before us (Jeremiah, Ezekiel and even John The Baptist), OUR MESSAGE is the same, Repent From Sin, Turn To God and Obey Him!  
 
 
"WHO CALLS FORTH LOYALTY &
OBEDIENT SERVICE
"
 
 
 
 
 
     Now just to talk to you heart to heart.  Dewayne and I together read at least a Chapter a day in our Bibles.  At the time of writing this Teaching Letter we have been and still are reading in the Book of Ezekiel.  Throughout our time in the Book of Ezekiel we have learned once again, so much.  Yet, there is ONE THING that God has been repeating and resounding within us both.  And that is, ". . . and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service]."  This has been repeated by God to us 27 times while reading in the Book of Ezekiel!
  
      And what we have found is that when God would say this in the Book of Ezekiel there were times that He was speaking to the People of Ezekiel's Day, ". . . and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service.]."
       
     And then God would say it again, ". . . and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service]" when He was telling us, THE PEOPLE LIVING RIGHT NOW IN HISTORY and to those in the future as we read about in Revelation too!  The Message God had for His People before they were taken into captivity by King Nebuchadnezzar IS THE SAME MESSAGE THAT HE HAS FOR US RIGHT NOW IN HISTORY!
 
     I looked up the three words, "loyalty," "obedience" and "service."  What I found is "Loyalty" is faithful; showing firm allegiance.  "Loyalty" is also obedience, adherence, homage, devotion; steadfastness, staunchness, true heartedness, dependability, reliability, trustworthiness, duty, dedication, commitment; faithfulness, honesty, sincerity, trustworthiness. 
 
     "Obedience" is compliance with an order, commands, request, or law or submission to another's authority Ready to obey.  Other words that mean "obedience" are compliance, agreement, respect, submission, willingness, duty, conformity, reverence.
 
     "Service" is the action of helping or doing work for someone.  To support.  Other words that are meanings to the word "Service" are attention, availability, cooperation, disposal, employ, encouragement, expediting, function, gift, giving, guidance, hand, help, labor, ministry, performance, relief, reward, rescue, supply, treatment, use, worship.
 
     These men (Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel) all understood true loyalty and complete submission to obedient service!  All three witnessed The Temple and Jerusalem fall, all three experienced changes in their lives that would be forever!  All three captive and all three leaving everything they'd ever known!  All witnessing the sight of People suffering, all facing the unknown and all experiencing and being exposed to slavery as opposed to freedom that they had known.  And yet, through it all, all three were dependable, submitted to God and were ready to obey ANYTHING they were told to do by The Father! 
 
"And you shall, understand, and realize that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and
obedient service],"
 
     

     My measurement of LOYALTY AND OBEDIENT SERVICE is Not The SAME As My Lord's.  Dewayne and I have been seriously looking at ourselves the last few weeks.  We have been and are still evaluating ourselves and our true motives to why we do what we do.  Through brokenness and tears I write this to My Lord.
 
 

Lord, right now I repent for not being dependable when You needed me and that my dedication has not been at the level it should be in my life. I have realized that I value You in my life and I'm sorry for losing focus at times. I, along with You, know that You have given me Orders that I have put to the side and not fulfilled. I have done my own thing many times and not kept myself in a place of readiness to obey and in a place of availability. I have thought of myself and my wants, when My First Love needed me. I am so sorry that I have let You down and not been ready to expedite Your Wants at any time. Jesus, I ask You to help me in becoming Your Desire of Loyalty and what Obedient Service looks like. You really are worth it all and what I would ever sacrifice or give. I love You My King! I pray and repent in Jesus Name! - Jamie

 
    
     My hope for you, Beloved of God is to get before The King and pour yourself out to Him and allow yourself to be evaluated.  And the Message is still the same today as it was in Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel's day, Repent From Sin, Turn To God and Obey Him!  Be Loyal to Him and be Obedient!
                        
                                            Keep Getting Ready, Jesus Is Coming! 
                                     Jamie
