  • A constant reminder to pray

    My 7 year old asked me to read the story of Nehemiah and Jehoshaphat’s fight against the Moabites and Ammonites (2 Chron 20). Both are about the underdog beating out a more powerful enemy with repentance and prayer.
    Thank you Arthur for directing us on how to pray.
    Going to start with suggestion 1 and work through your list!

    You know how when you first start up a two-stroke engine, it runs a bit rough until it warms up? I feel like that is what is happening - in that I been running a bit rough for a long while, but in this season, my engine is starting to settle down, and get into the groove. I was asking the Lord about the horse therapy - wondering how I would be able to address deliverance issues in that setting, with people, often groups, who were not even aware of the realities, and too wobbly to engage on that level just yet. I got the sense that He has been developing the blessing of presence I carry - hadn't thought of it in terms of effectiveness with Covid, but that, too - that would position people to be able to access the next step in their journey, whatever that looked like for them: whether it was healing from Covid (identified or not) but also deliverance. Just interesting...

    Dear Brother Arthur
    My mom follows you faithfully and I am beginning to. I am concerned for my adult children. One is under the influence of demons in the form of schizophrenia and is hyper religious in a bad way. We pray and fast continually. The critters are powerful. My daughter is getting ready to finish law school at Regent and getting a Christian education. I have an older son 28 who is not walking with God. If required for staying in school she must take the vaccine how can she opt out. I don’t want any of them infertile. How do we handle if all my sons benefits are removed if he is forced to take the shot It has aborted tissue from a 14 week old Caucasian boy from the 1966 abortion line. This adding rna or dna is very evil I believe. They are all grown 26,27,28 I pray and fast and like my mom believe this is a flu type just like any other and they are trying to use it against us to divide us and stop worship. I hate what is happening to America but I also know for all countries to stand against Israel American must fall away. I see Christians against Christians daily. It is hurtful and the church follows man made rules to stay open. It seems they lack faith to trust God and “just need to be safe”.
    Do you think there is any hope the blatant lawlessness will be uncovered for us to have 4 more years to repent ? Judgement is here I understand and there is no man or woman in power turning to God publicly, but the lawlessness is so terrible and so obvious it hurts my heart.
    One last question. You stated in this last commentary that The father and Jesus were United while he was on the cross. What did you mean? I thought Jesus had to die and go to hell to pay for sins and preach to those in captivity and then the power after 3 days and nights reunited Him to the Father. How did this happen ON the cross. I have never heard that.
    Many blessings and prayers for healing of our land and the removal of critters from my sons

    Replied by : Arthur Burk IN answer to the question of Jesus and Father reconnecting on the cross, I see the three hours of darkness as the Shadow of Death (a specific kind of entity) coming between Jesus and Father. But, the last statement of Christ on the cross was "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." He was fully trusting in the goodness of the Father as He died.

  • This rings as TRUTH verses true.

    Thank you Arthur,
    It is true that there is a pandemic, covid-19, financial struggles, business failures, government issues, and lack of normal community. But the TRUTH is God has predestined our identity, our purpose and our vision. He will give us the strategies, plans and courage to do our part to bring His redemption and healing to our part of the world. I truly believe that.
    I love how you speak the TRUTH. Jesus is the Way, the TRUTH and the life.

    Oh yes the principle of repentance. I will keep pressing in. I want to move in intimacy and dominion. I am remembering His mercies toward me. I will not grow weary in doing good.

  • Separation

    For me, the Lord has been emphasizing the separation - on every level. It is a work of divine calling out, both internally and externally to prepare the people of God to engage with Him like never before. It is "God with us" - "all creation waiting for the manifested presence of the Sons of God", "Being still and know that He is God". Not just memorized ideology, but manifested reality - and a reality that is to be seen and experienced by the whole world. Amazing power, authority, dominion over all - that God is true and every man a liar.
    Thank you for so succinctly summing up great strategies to pursue.

    This is sobering to read and very thought provoking.
    I'm plugged in to an M.D.'s website, who specializes in cellular function and nutrition. He has access to things like clinical trial results and vaccine development protocols and is very vocal in his warnings against the vaccine as it is being produced. With his expertise in cellular function, he is sounding the alarm of how our natural human defense mechanisms at the cellular level, will be overwhelmed by the vaccine itself with fatal consequences. The vaccine will cause our God created natural defense immune system, to malfunction and turn against itself. It makes your scenario of the vaccine being a death mechanism, very plausible.
    I'm going to keep this article handy and re-read it often, hoping to develop some personal strategies for the possible scenarios.

    .... for by your pharmakia all nations were deceived. Rev 18:23
    Arthur, you already pointed out that Big Pharma is the biggest evildoer. From Revelation I believe that this is the beginning of the end time judgement. At the end of it Big Pharma will be completely annihilated. Awesome writing from you, thanks.
    I have prayed over people for healing years ago and had quite some success, as there was revival in the atmosphere at the time. I don't feel this anymore today. The people I encounter on a daily bases are less and less desiring to engage with God and receive healing from HIM. Even my own father denied my offer to pray with him. He expects to pass away in a couple on months now.
    People we have fellowshipped with in the past have little by little turned away, offended over things, that don't even have anything to do with our fellowship.
    When I asked Yehovah on what to do, I get encouraged to walk alone and stay put. HE even wrote the word "separation" on our new propane tank, and HE did that in Hebrew letters.
    More and more we see the fence straddling coming to an end. You are either all in or all out. And HIS remnant is very small.

    Arthur, thanks for this so much needed biblical approach among so much confusion.
    It’s so significant to see your examples from the Bible like David, John the Baptist, Ezekiel and Jesus reaction were in the midst of adversity. It’s encouraging to see that to get involved in the warfare and not produce immediate results is not that we are not called or anointed or we shouldn’t have done this or that because there are no results. Wow even Jesus miracles in Capernaum . We should just persevere and leave the results and know God is building our capacity. A new revelation. Eish.
    Also powerful is how you summarize the secular humanism way to deal with Gods judgement. we don’t have to depend on the world for solutions. God is in control in all circumstances. True repentance and mercy for us is crucial.
    Thanks you for everything you share. It builds us.
    I loved that gymnastic and basketball comparison to. Powerful and needed for us to get a better understanding of what we face. May God bless you.

    Well stated, Arthur. We all have a God-designed and God-ordained role in this season, and it is up to each one of us to lean in and discover what that role is; then to develop and execute. I will be sharing this with my portion of the Tribe.

    I read a column from two years ago by Anne Hamilton about the shadow of death. I was reading Regions of Captivity this morning (Ferrell) about the shadow of death. I sought a piece of scrap paper out of an old notebook . There were notes marked Arthur Burk and also Anne Hamilton (honestly, I am not a follower) about guess what? The shadow of death... oh, and I have be a part of two different groups which are repenting, fasting, and decreeing.

    I also appreciate your entreaty to "keep fighting". I recall the story of John Wimber in the early days when they felt God had called them to pray for the sick. They spent a whole year praying with no results. And finally after getting on their faces before Him the dam broke, and it began a healing wave within the Vineyard movement that I was privileged to be a part of years ago.

    I appreciate this Arthur. It's hard hitting as usual, and sorely needed.
    I'm glad you pointed us away from "sinking ship theology" and towards engagement. The four grids are excellent. I'll be looking to find my place in all of them, "for such a time as this..."

    Replied by : Arthur Burk Finding your place. Perfect wording. Go be dangerous.

    Thank you for sharing Arthur, I needed to hear this perspective. It only confirms what I keep pushing into background as truth. Being a “faith girl” it has been very conflicting to accept judgment as opposed to God making it all go away overnight.
    Earlier in the year I was compelled to study repentance of Nineveh. So far, I’m not seeing a response of repentance from from believers, much less those outside the community of faith. The prophetic just keep moving the goal post.
    My prayer has been for “Jonahs” to come forth and for Gods mercy to be extended, and Gods healers would take their place.
    I pray that repentance would start with me.
    Yes and Amen

    Replied by : Arthur Burk Thanks Becky. And kudos to you for having already gone to the Bible to search out the principles for a nation under judgment. Well done!
