Have you been with Jesus?

Jesus planned a magnificent destiny for you, and gave you incredible prayers and prophecies, unanswered until now. Step out, to step up!

Have you been with Jesus? 

Are you a “God wrestler?”
When we’ve been with Jesus, a consuming fire burns in our bones. Idols are cast down. Anything that takes the place of Christ’s Lordship is gone. The idols are dealt with because pride is broken. The Bible says, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” (Psalm 51:17 NIV).

Have you been with Jesus?

When we’ve been with Jesus, we’ve been sealed “unto the day of redemption” (1 Peter 1:18, Romans 3:24, and 1 Corinthians 1:30) which is the redemptive work of Christ in the now! Jesus said, “Behold I go and prepare a place for you.” This sounds like a mansion in heaven, but there is another Hebrew word in the original that describes Christ as preparing a “position” for us. It’s true, we may have a mansion, but I do believe we’ll also have a position in the kingdom of God. We will rule and reign in the millennium then, but we rule and reign on earth today. When Jesus left this earth, He sent His Spirit to us, and then sat down in heaven in intercession for us now.

Have you been with Jesus?

When we’ve been with Jesus, Christ’s promises are ours! Jesus said, “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me” (John 17:22-23 KJV). We know the glory the Father gave Jesus and have the closeness of being with Jesus. Christ dwells in us so fully that the world knows the Father has sent Jesus. What a way to live!

Have you been with Jesus?

Jesus proclaimed, “My Father will come unto Him and abide in Him” (John 14:21-23). By knowing, living, and breathing the fullness of being with Christ, and Christ being in us, we ask what we will and it shall be done. Jesus has all things under His feet, and is the Head over all things to His Body. This means, all things are under the feet of those who have been with Him.

Have you been with Jesus?

When we’ve been with Jesus we no longer fear man. All signs of inferiority and self-consciousness are gone as Christ takes over. We rejoice in persecution and bless our enemies because our flesh is already dead, and our “all” is surrendered to Jesus’ care. Our prayers frighten us, and time for Him is no longer an object as all our time is given joyously back to the One through Whom it came. Being with Jesus releases the gifts of the Holy Spirit, not to endorse a ministry or receive approval of men, but as a tool to accomplish present-day ministry on earth.

Have you been with Jesus?

When we’ve been with Jesus, He makes known to us the mystery of His will, which is His good pleasure. The eyes of our hearts are flooded with light so we can know the greatness of His power. We live to the fullness of the measure of Christ Who makes all things complete and fills everything with Himself (Ephesians 1:9-23). We sit together with Him in heavenly places and He demonstrates through us the riches of His free grace (Ephesians 2:6-7).

Have you been with Jesus?

When we’ve been with Jesus, we receive gifts to perfect and equip the saints, to build up Christ’s Body until we attain oneness in the faith and the comprehension of the Son of God. Our lives lovingly express truth and are no longer lived as heathens with spiritual apathy, sensuality, greed, and every form of impurity (Ephesians 4:11-13).

Have you been with Jesus?

The Candidate by Mike Evans

The Candidate was written in order to expose the lie of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and to reveal the extent to which this lie has led to the ongoing hatred of the Jewish people and the state of Israel by her racist enemies.

It was written in fiction form in order to reach beyond an audience of scholars, academics and political pundits to the common man. Most are unaware of the extent to which even their own opinions about modern Israel and the Jewish people have been subtly influenced by the anti-Semitic slurs which ultimately flow from this hate literature.

The Candidate by Mike Evans is available at Timeworthy Books.

The Final Generation by Mike Evans

As Ezekiel   hears it, God  confronts Gog  and his coalition for  their evil intentions against the nation of Israel:

“It will come about on that day, that thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil plan,  and you will say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will go against those who are at  rest,  that live securely, all of them living without  walls  and having no bars or gates,  to capture spoil  and  to seize plunder,  to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited, and against the people who are gathered from the nations, who have acquired  cattle and goods,  who live at the center of the world.’

“Therefore prophesy, son of man, and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “On that day when My people Israel are living securely, will you not know it?” —Ezekiel 38: 10-12,14

There  are some telling conditions  in the details of this prophecy that give us insight into how it will come about and just how close it might be. The first is that this will come in a time of relative peace and security  for Israel, something  the Jews haven’t really known since the United  Nations voted to partition Palestine into Jewish and Palestinian states  in 1947. This  is what has made  some  suggest  that this  attack will happen in the initial years of the Tribulation, soon after the peace accord engineered by the Antichrist,  and that it is impossible any time before that. However,  the initial years of the Tribulation  don’t appear to be any more secure than what Israel is experiencing  now. Revelation tells us those years will be filled with natural disasters, wars, plagues, and famines that will  kill  a quarter of  the  world’s  population. (See  Revelation 6:1-8.)

Dying To Self

The Christian life is to be lived in the Spirit, not the flesh. We must crucify the flesh, mortifying the members, and die-to-self so the Spirit of God can rule and reign in our lives. The Bible says it’s like a seed that falls into the ground and dies only to spring up.

A seed is a container of life. As long as this container remains alone, it cannot grow. Some seeds sit for decades with no growth and seemingly no purpose, until something breaks open the outer shell so the seed can interact with the soil and water to grow. A seed can sit for a hundred years in its own identity and accomplish nothing. But when a seed finally dies, one seed can feed millions. Jesus said, “The hour has come … when the Son of Man has to die” (John 12:23-24). He is our example.

A woman came to Jesus with a costly box of perfume called “nard,” worth an entire year’s wages. She broke the box directly on Christ’s head so that He would catch every drop of oil. The disciples grumbled that she’d wasted money, but Christ was so moved, He said she had anointed Him for His death and that wherever His gospel was preached, the story of her offering would be told. The box itself wasn’t the fragrant offering for Jesus. The woman didn’t paint or polish the box. She didn’t try to get the box to smell like perfume. Instead, she smashed the box so the purity of the nard inside the box could be released upon Christ. Through an act of humility and brokenness, she wrestled with God, enjoying the nearness of His presence.

For the life of God to be released, God Himself, through Jesus Christ, had to go into the earth to die. We follow Christ’s pattern. The person’s outer shell—the “natural man,” not the body—has to die for the “inner man” to be released. As long as we try to preserve the outer shell, keeping the flesh intact, the inner man will never be released. As long as we are enamored with our outer shell, we will never see the ministry of Jesus Christ live through us.

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us" (2 Corinthians 4:7 KJV). We have to remember the power is from God and is inside the jar, not outside. God literally placed the Person of Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, in our earthen vessels! Only when our external, fleshy part is broken can the power of the aroma of the treasure be received into Heaven.


THE HIDING PLACE told us what Corrie and her family did, now this very special booklet tells us how she felt during those dark days. You won't want to miss reading what this great hero of the mid-20th Century shared in this marvelous literary work.

As goes the Church, so goes the nation

We cannot expect the nation to be more moral than we are. As goes the Church, so goes the nation. There’s been little outrage over the tens-of-millions of abortions, over the perfusion of Internet pornography and over a divorce rate that affects half the population. There is little outrage over the massive number of teenage suicides in the Church, as well as outside it. We’ve grown accustomed to teen alcohol and drug abuse.

Where’s the outrage at more Christians being persecuted worldwide today than at any time in history? Where’s the outrage over 34 million people dying of AIDS?

Where is a Christian’s outrage about “fatherlessness?” Did you know that 27 million American children go to sleep every night without a father in the home? In New York City, 92 percent of the young people never even darkened the door of a church. Every year, a quarter of a million high school girls get pregnant. One in eight babies are born outside of wedlock. Per capita, America leads the world in sexually active teenagers and abortions.

We show little outrage as states and denominations fight to approve homosexual marriages and lobby to lower the age of sexual consent — in essence, legalizing child molestation. Little outrage is heard over hard-core pornography, which represents a larger consumer market than Hollywood moviemaking. Little outrage also over crime, even though every 22 seconds in the U.S. a major crime occurs, and every 34 minutes that crime is a murder. On any given day, 100,000 students carry guns into classrooms and one-in-five American children will end up in jail. One million teenagers in America are chronic alcoholics! America leads the industrial world in murder, rape, abortion and incarceration. Where is our outrage?

When I met the late Mother Teresa in Rome, she told me that America was the poorest country on earth because it suffered from a “poverty of spirit.” The Church is to be the “light” of the world. It was obvious to her that our Christian “light” in America was no longer dispelling the darkness. No wonder 80 percent of our young people leave the Church, when they leave home. They saw that it didn’t work for their parents, so why would it work for them? Parents who don’t wrestle with God likely won’t birth children who do.


I'm asking you today to sign an URGENT PETITION to President Ahmadinejad of Iran to save the life of Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani, commute his death sentence and allow him and his family to emigrate to another nation where they will be able to freely worship according to their Christian faith.

We Are More Than Conquerors In Christ

If we want something we’ve never had, we’ll have to do something we’ve never done. Sadly, in the last decade, more Christians have left God than have come to Him. More books have been written about marriage than in all of Church history, yet we’re seeing the highest rate of divorce ever. This is because we’re propagating the falsehood that we can live a Christian life. The Christian life is not simply too hard to live in our flesh. In fact, it is impossible.

It’s time to expose this lie! Christians are backsliding because they have been deceived. We try to overcome sin in our own flesh, but the more we attempt to fight the hordes of hell in our own strength, the more worried and discouraged we become. When we make up our minds not to allow flesh to control our lives, we will be delivered from struggles, worries and fears, and we will go beyond anything we have ever imagined, as we enter into the greatest move of the Holy Spirit the world has ever seen. “Flesh,” no matter how good or sincere, can never break the chains of sin’s power.

When we attempt to live the Christian life through our own power, no matter how sincere we may be, we are as dry as desert sand. It is not about our stuff — our job, education, gifts, power, personality and intelligence. It is always about His stuff — His kingdom, power, joy, grace and peace. Any believer who thinks they can overcome the unprecedented societal pollution, filth, seduction and “plague” of demonic temptations on television and the airwaves in their own strength, is deceived.

We can cry a river of tears, pray with all our hearts and be sincerely in love with Jesus, but be absolutely bound. We ultimately surrender to a compromised Christianity. Believing we can never be free from the power of sin, we resign ourselves to struggle for the rest of our lives, sinning then repenting, sinning then repenting, and never becoming “more than a conqueror” in Christ Jesus.


The American dream is turning into a nightmare right before our eyes, blinding many to the converging prophetic storms gathering before us. People, including many Christians, have grown dull of hearing. As Solomon warned us in Proverbs, now more than ever, “the complacency of fools shall destroy them” (Proverbs 1:32).
