Get out of the boat

When I got out of the boat, there I was with Peter, and Jesus was nearby as well. I never did sink very far, because Jesus caught me. My life has always been different, most everyone I've know, stayed in the boat. I though had little choice, my boat was sinking! I just about went under, but I heard HIM call, and tell me to come to Him. I went without thinking, just like Peter did. There I was on the water, above and not below, because of His will, not mine. My life was over, I was going down, He stopped me, He called to me, and He saved me.

When I was little years old, Jesus would come to my room, and look me in the eyes with both of His. I was a hermit; I was coward in my room, scared of the world, scared of everyone. But He brought love to me, every night in my room. In the world, I was nothing, nobody wanted me, but in His eyes, I saw that He did want me. Growing up, I found that I was not like the other boys; I cried a lot, I did not do well at anything, I had few friends, and those even turned on me. I created my own world in my thought life. In my world, nobody lied, cheated or stole from anyone. There was harmony, and still at 60 years old I live life a lot in that fantasy world of mine. Jesus has been involved in invading this world. Many in the church live in a fantasy world also. Jesus is calling us out. We can trust Him, but will we follow Him? My life is not my own, He bought it with a price. I have suffered 39 years for Him. I lost where most would say they won. America is in trouble, they, the church have lost its way, they say, they know Him, but refuse to get out of the boat. I got out, so can you. We, in this generation have a form of godliness without power. We were told to go to the upper room and wait, wait for His Holy Spirit, so that we would be anointed with power, but we didn’t go. We didn’t get out of the boat. Some did, most did not! We are the MOST SORRY LOT as christens, when we are powerless! Look at how our enemy has taken our land, people and cities, money, jobs, etc. and most christens are doing business as usual. Where is the call to battle? Where are the watchmen? I have suffered much for my King, are you greater than our Master? I lost my wife, my career, my reputation, my retirement, oh, no vacations at all, I work for little, struggle much, have great need, but His love surrounds me. I ‘m seeing two (2) types of christens today, two classes, two camps, and it disturbs me! The first class is suffering in their bodies, many kinds of infirmity, job loss, loss of reputation; they can’t pay their bills for lack of money. They cry to God daily, wondering if they are loved, they are, but group two doesn‘t care. They get great revelations, words from God that things will change}{, but group two doesn‘t even care. They have visions and dreams from God about their future, and what God will give to them. We have another group, group two, they have it all, houses, secure incomes, retirement, healthy bodies, health care, new cars, vacations EVERY year, and they say they have the ear of God, and get ALL their prayers when they pray to come to pass.

I hear a sound in the heavens, a mighty rushing Wind, the Spirit is calling, and will you just come in. Hear My Voice, harden not your hearts, I have much to say to you, but you were to busy, another time you say, but He is the Lord, calling you His way. There are three things I take notice of, 1: pride of life 2: lust of the eyes 3: lusts of the flesh; which do you want today? Our pastors say pay your tithes, or you will rob God, but I say love people around you, and take care of them

like you take care of yourself. Obey the Voice of God as well.

Love God with all you have. Think not as highly as you think of yourself. Get out of the boat!

Get Out of the Boat!!!! Where is your faith? Where is your faith? He is calling YOU, get out of the boat, do something special today, give YOUR vacation to someone that has had none.

Judgment begins where we are, right now, do you know a person hurting, broke, in jail, in the hospital, hungry, or lonely, get out of the boat, walk on that water, do the works of Jesus! Put something in that heavenly account, see with your spiritual eyes, and walk on water, overcome,

 And you will find joy in your Fathers eyes when He looks at you in that day.

G E T   O U T O F   T H E   B O A T  !


I have lost many earthy things, and my God has shown me that ONLY when we really trust Him, will wondrous things happen, I challenge you to give beyond your means, and find the Fathers Way. His Way is higher than our ways (Isaiah). You cannot out give God, but you can be bankrupt when you get to heaven because you ate all your seed. Seed is for giving, planting, eating, not just so you can have everything, but that praise be given to God for your faithfulness, for other peoples lives. A man’s life is not what he has but what he does with what he has! A principle: One gathered little but had no lack, one gathered much but had nothing left over. Check your bags, have alms bags full, ready for good deeds, gather to have something to give away to others, for the praise of God, gather some for yourself. Be not like the Pharisees who love to have the praise of men rather than the praise of God. The j shall live by faith, have you done it today, it’ s impossible to please God without it. Get out of the boat (stand by faith. Accept Jesus as Your Lord and Savior Right Now - CLICK HERE
