Drawing A Clear Red Line

The Prime Minister of Israel once again delivered an amazing speech at the United Nation's General Assembly this year. Pointing out the tainted history of how the U.N. has so often rebuked the Jewish State for defending herself against her enemies. Rather than praise Israel for her limited response to the attacks against her from all sides; more often than not she is rebuked for defending herself against the terrorist that not only surround her, but are living in her midst.

  In his remarks, Mr. Netanyahu laid down the case for the world's governments to move beyond words, beyond the sanctions and beyond turning blind eyes and deaf ears to the Iranian nuclear weapons program. In his own eloquent manner, the Prime Minister let the world know that if a clear red line is not drawn now, Iran will continue to work on its nuclear weapons program and thus, it will be a threat to the entire world.

  The reason the United States and Russia didn't blow each other into history during the Cold War days is very simple; neither the Russians nor the Americans had a desire to be killed. Knowing that millions of people would be killed and there would be no way to come back from the destruction caused by mutual nuclear animation, neither country ever fired a weapon. It is much different with the threat coming out of Iran.

  The Iranians do not think like most of the other nations in this world. As the Iranian president has pointed out so many times on television in the Middle East, "we love death more than you love life." Death isn't a threat to these people. The radical Muslims believe that to die in a Jihad, a holy war, is the only way to guarantee admission into heaven. This is a people that have children in order to strap bombs on them, send them into a crowded mall or market with the sole purpose of blowing themselves up and, as many Jews and Christians as they can.

  This is a nation, a religion that praise suicide bombers as heroes, as people they admire and celebrate their death. In the Muslim religion, when a man or woman is killed in jihad, killing "in fides" assures that twenty-five relatives will also be admitted into heaven. This is why a mother will come on television and tell the world that she is proud of her child who has just blown themselves and others up.

  The clear red line must be drawn because to allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons is like handing nuclear weapons over to the terrorist who attacked America on September 11, 2001. To allow a nuclear weapon in the hands of the Iranians is like handing a nuke to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbulah and every other radical Islamic group in the world. Let me put it in terms you might be able to get. Imagine what would've happened had Adolf Hitler had a nuclear bomb during World War II. Imagine what would've happened if Hitler had placed a nuclear warhead on a Buzz-bomb and allowed it to target London. This is the danger that we now face with Amadinejad and the Iranian nuclear program.

  We need to apply pressure on president Obama and the Congress to support Israel and to use any and all measures we have to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. America must let Iran, and the rest of the world, know that we will back Israel and we are going to stop Iran from being a threat to the entire world. It's a whole lot better that we stop Iran now, rather than risk Iran having a nuclear bomb and use the threat of using it on America to get her to surrender: I don't think Mr. Obama would have the guts to stand up against Iran: after all, he's no Jack Kennedy.

  While you are all praying for the peace of Jerusalem, pray that our government will do what is right in the eyes of Yehovah God, right in the eyes of history and right because we should support and defend our ONLY ally in the Middle East. Stopping these religious fanatics from obtaining weapons capable of hold the world hostage is a must! We must stop Iran and its charge to take over the world and force Islamic law down the throats of a free world. The time is NOW, before it's too late.

Blessings and peace,

Pastor Dave

Celebrating 500 Broadcasts

  This is a little hard for me to wrap my brain around, but today I'll be broadcasting the 500th episode of my radio ministry. I was sitting here trying to think about what the Father has had me doing since June 2010 and it just blows my mind.

  Since 2010 I've been broadcasting an Internet radio program. It started off as a news and Bible commentary program called Christian New & Review. In this format I covered news stories that had prophetic meaning and then, I would add my personal commentary based on Bible prophecies and signs of the times. The original programs were meant to be along the lines of a Christian rush Limbaugh and, to be honest, they weren't all that good.

  In the early days I didn't have a fast enough Internet connection to broadcast live and they were very choppy with my voice coming and going. I didn't have the ability to play live music and it was pretty bad. I resorted to broadcasting the program via a telephone connection and I just wasn't happy with the sound quality at all. I've always felt like we should always strive to do the best we can do for Yehovah and never settle for anything substandard. If the devil's people have the best, then Yehovah's people should too because we work for the King of the universe.

  After only about two months of programing, the Father made the way for me to have a broadcast quality Internet connection installed, to get a wonderful sound board, great microphone and upgrade the programs programing. It was about this same time that the program got a name change and a mission change as well and, things have never been the same. I went from full time news and commentary to a teaching and preaching format with the occasional CNR news broadcast.

  Today is the 500th broadcast and the Father has continued to bless. No matter what I've needed to continue doing this program, Yehovah God has sent it. Computers, office supplies, microphones, recording equipment, video recording equipment, funds to pay for radio air time and He''s also blessed me with books and research materials so that I could learn more about Him and His Word. There have been times when I didn't think He was listening to my prayers, that I may have to stop doing this radio ministry, but God has never been late, always on time.

  In the past two years - three months, I've broadcasted more than twenty-two thousand hours of programs and studied the Word of Yehovah more hours than I can calculate. The Father has opened the door for me to be a guest on many radio programs to teach about end time prophecy, Middle East issues and, above all of this: the Father has given me the honor of praying for tens of thousands of people, lead many to Yeshua for the first time and been blessed to lead some folks who had strayed from their faith and gone back to lives of sin. each time I've received an email from someone who has been saved, I've wept tears of joy. Every time someone has written me to let me know that they came to pray the sinners prayer because of something I said on the program, I've stopped to celebrate that person's salvation and to thank my God that I was in a place where I could lead them in the Sinner's Prayer.

  I don't want you to get the wrong idea here; I'm not writing this to brag on Dave Lillard: I'm writing this to brag on the power and anointing of the great God of creation. I'm writing this to brag on the One who called me to minister when I was just 12 years old at a summer youth camp in Texas. I'm writing this because I want the world to know that Yehovah can use anyone for His purposes. I was a backslidden preacher's kid, living in sin, singing Country music in night clubs, bars, honky tonks and major arenas all across America. I had no desire to be a preacher, no desire to lead souls to salvation and no desire to teach the Bible on an Internet radio program.

  It was in 2004 when God brought me back to His loving arms, His loving gift of grace and salvation through the blood of Yeshua. He cleaned me up, planted my feet on the solid rock and has given me the honor to become a teacher of His Word to people all over the world. Though I'm now disabled from auto accidents, thanks to the technology available to me, I'm able to do this program from my home studio, which Yehovah provided. Rather than give up, a burden for lost souls and to teach the truth of the Bible was placed in my heart. I will never be the same, never return to a life of sin and I will be teaching as long as our Father will allow me.

  Folks, it has been my honor to be a pastor to people who, for whatever reason, are shut-in, are disabled, are in an area where they don't have a church to go to. I have been blessed and humbled to learn that many of my piers think of me as an authority on biblical prophecy and humbled by the email from a child thanking me for leading his daddy back to the Lord. Though there are days when I want to throw up my hands and give up, every time that feeling comes, one of you dear people send me a note to thank me for doing what I'm doing and that, that gives me the strength to continue to pastor this online church with members all over the world.

  Thank you for reading this longer than usual blog: and thank you for the prayers and support of and for this online ministry. I want you to know that I love and appreciate each and every one of you. I'm praying for you and one day, here or in Heaven, I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and hugging your neck. You guys have blessed me so many times, I can't thank you enough.

  May Yehovah bless you and keep you; may Yehovah make His face to shine on you and be gracious to you; may Yehovah lift up His countenance upon you and give your His Shalom, His peace. May you and your family rest in the peace that passes all understanding and may you always be mindful of your Father and walk in His will. May you be blessed beyond your greatest dreams and, may we all meet one day in that land where we will never have to say good-bye.

Blessings, peace and love,

Pastor Dave Lillard

Something's About To Happen

  As I'm writing this blog, it is about 3:00 AM on Tuesday, September 4, 2012. Last night I couldn't sleep. I couldn't get comfortable and my heart was heavy. I couldn't put my finger on it, I could figure out why I couldn't sleep. It was so bad that it was nearly  10:00 AM before I was able to sleep, and even then it was only for about four hours.

  I was preparing to sleep this morning, I felt this in my spirit so, before I went to bed I thought it best I get it out. I want you all to remember, I don't claim to be anything except a minister, a teacher of the Bible. I dobn't believe I have any prophetic gift or calling, but I do feel things in my spirit from time to time. This is one of those times.

  Something is about to happen. There is a major shaking in the spirit world and I'm not the only one feeling it. Something is about to happen that no one was really expecting, but it will have a profound affect on the world: something of biblical magnitude. This "something" will cause Christians around the world to examine their lives, cause the Church to begin unifying and it will even cause many sinners to come to know Yeshua. Those sinners who don't immediately come to Yeshua will, at the very least, begin to examine their lives and start making their way toward a saving knowledge of Yeshua.

  While I can't say for sure, I feel like this "something" is a two pronged event. I feel like something is going to happen in the Middle East. I believe it has somethign to do with either an attack on Israel or Iran. There will be a significant loss of life and there will be panic around the world. Brave men's hearts will fail them and some will not know how to handle this event, or what to do about it. It will be a major event that is somehow linked to prophecy.

  I also feel like something major is going to happen on American soil. When I think about, I sence enormous pain, suffering and fear. I don't know if it's an attack, a natural disaster of some kind or what exactly. What I do know is that it will touch nearly the whole of the nation and its big enough that it will cause Christians to hit their knees in serious prayer. I can't seem to get away from the fear aspect of this feeling. It's like millions of people are in the same place, at the same time and all of them are afraid of the same thing. It's like a  focused fear.

  Again, I don't claim to have any sort of prophetic gift, but this sence is so strong in my spirit that there has to be something to it. I don't like saying things like this, but I felt like you folks should know so that you can pray and ask our Father to reveal any instructions He might have for you, your family and your church. I would strongly urge you to begin a time of serious intercession and don't stop until you feel the Father release you from it.

  I will be praying about this feeling and asking for more revelation. We are living in the last days of this final age on earth. We all need to be listening and sensative to the Holy Spirit because, as it says in Amos, our God will not do anything until He first tells His prophets and ministers so they can warn the children of Yehovah first. Keep you hearts and ears open and, you might want to check the Internet for any stories from those few who are true prophets of God. They will all have very similar messages and they will all come out about the same time.

Blessings, peace and Yeshua's love to you all,

To Christian Singles


  I was pondering why the love of my life hadn’t come into my life, and asking our Father where she was, when He reminded me of a couple of lines from a movie I’ve watched several times. The movie was based on the life of Charles Spurgeon and was set in an early meeting with the woman who was to become his wife, Suzanna.

  They were sitting at a concert in London when he handed her a book of poetry he’s reading and asked her to read a particular poem. When she finished reading the poem, Charles asked her “do you pray for the one who is to be your husband? I pray for she who is to be my wife.” I think this is a question that should be asked of all single Christians, especially in today’s society. Do you pray for the one that is to be your wife or husband?

  I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve had some very bad experiences with singles. I’ve met several who claimed to be Christians but, when pressed, I found that they were either name only Christians or that they were involved in some weird denomination with some very strange beliefs. I’ve even met a couple who held more to what some “prophet” had taught as opposed to what the Bible teaches. I even had one try to tell me that the Bible was wrong and what this “prophet” taught was actually the truth. Didn’t take me long to get out of that situation at all. Poof, I was gone.

  As single Christians we should be praying for the one we’re to marry long before we ever meet them in person. We need to be praying for them, blessing them and asking the Father for His divine protection over them every single day. This is the person that we’ll spend the rest of our lives with. We will pray with them, study the Bible with them and attend services with them so, it’s vital that we believe much alike and that we’re both rooted and grounded in the Word of God. You and I don’t want to be unequally yoked together with an unbeliever or with someone who doesn’t have the same core beliefs we have. We want the one our Father in Heaven chose for us and nothing less.

  So, as you’re going through your day, my dear single Christian friend, make time to pray for that special someone who is to share your life. Pray for their safety, for their soul and pray that you will know them when you meet them. Don’t waste your time on anyone who isn’t a Believer because all it will get you is hurt. Pray about the person you’re thinking about dating and follow where the Lord leads you. Keep a prayerful eye out for “red flags” that would could be a warning that they aren’t really a Believer. It is far better to be alone than to be in a relationship that isn’t blessed by God. It might be a bit tough at times, but we’ll be a whole lot better off waiting on God’s timing than trying to force something that just isn’t what He planned for us.

  Thanks for reading this little blog and remember, pray for the one that is to be your wife or husband. Pray for them like they were already in your life and Yehovah will bless you and will answer your prayers with the ONE He made, just for you.

Touch Not My Anointed

  My minister friends will understand when I say that I wrestled with writing this blog for a couple of days before sitting down to write it. There are times when a minister is given instructions to preach a sermon or to teach on a particular topic that is uncomfortable for them. In this modern era, this is also true for those of us who blog or write articles and, this is one of those times for me.

  Over the past several months I’ve seen a lot of blogs, articles and videos from people who claim to be ministers, teachers, prophets and other assorted things, calling on their audience to label certain ministers as “false prophets.” While we all know there are a lot of false prophets and teachers out there, there are also a lot of people being called this that shouldn’t be. One of the dangers in trying to claim someone is a false prophet is that many times people mistaken label someone as a false prophet when, in realty, nothing could be father from the truth. The truth is a lot of people label someone as a false prophet simply because they don’t see eye to eye on a particular theology or belief.

  I’ve got a lot of wonderful ministers that I follow who happen to be on national television. The vast majority of these ministers and I see just about everything the same. There are, however, a few of them that we don’t agree on certain biblical doctrines and interpretations. This doesn’t mean that they, or I for that matter, are a false prophet, it just means we have a differing view of a particular doctrine. Herein lies the danger of trying to label someone.

  Look, just because you don’t believe the same as someone doesn’t mean that they are a false prophet; it might just be a differing opinion on that subject. Here’s something you need to consider very urgently. If you put out a message, a blog or a video calling that minister a false prophet when all it really comes down to is a differing view, you’re falsely accusing a fellow Believer and therefore, you’re committing a sin. That’s right, you read correctly. When you point your finger at someone and make a false accusation that could damage that person’s reputation in the public eye, you are making a false accusation and that, according to God’s Word, is barring false witness against your neighbor!

  We’ve all seen people who truly are false teachers or false prophets on television or heard them on the radio. What they’re promoting has no basis in fact with biblical teaching. They’re self serving egomaniacs who cannot substantiate their teachings without distorting the biblical truth and taking the Word of God completely out of context. There is a huge difference in this and calling someone a false prophet simply because you don’t agree with them.

  In I Chronicles 16:22 we see a very stern warning from Yehovah. This verse says “touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” This isn’t a suggestion; this is a command from our Father in Heaven. This isn’t something that should be taken lightly or blown off because, one of these days we’re going to be judged and everything we’ve said and done will be brought out into the open. If you’ve falsely accused someone, you will have to answer for it.

  One last point I want to make here before bringing this article to a close. Some of you making these accusations need to consider some things. First, when Jesus walked this earth, the religious leaders of His day, the Pharisees, called Him a false prophet and wanted to kill Him because of it. We all know that Jesus wasn’t a false prophet and that He had revelation the Pharisees didn’t. Jesus had the full knowledge of the Scriptures and, because of His righteousness; He had the full revelation of what the Scriptures meant that those self-righteous Pharisees didn’t. Could it be that some of you, for whatever reason, don’t have the revelation knowledge that someone else does? Have you stopped to consider the possibility?

  In Daniel we’re told that the books were to be sealed until the time of the end, don’t you think it might be possible that there a few people on this earth God may have revealed something to in order to teach us? There are a lot of things that our fathers taught and believed that we’re learning now don’t line up with Scripture after all. There are things that have been taught as fact for hundreds of years that, since the Bible has become available to everyone, we’re learning were manmade doctrines and not supported by the Bible.

  In this day and age the world is ready to line all Christians up against the wall and shoot us. The world is looking for any and every excuse it can dig up, real or not, to claim that our faith isn’t real, that Jesus isn’t the only way to heaven and that we’re just a bunch of intolerant, homophobic lunatics trying to cram our beliefs down everyone’s throats. They see the Church as a group of people who can’t agree on what we believe and that we’re unloving, rude and hypocritical. We’ve been commanded to love one another and to pray for one another and not to take pot shots at each other. As a matter of fact, we’ve been commanded to help a fallen brother get up off the ground and restore him, not to publically humiliate and accuse in so the world can have another reason not to believe in Jesus. Why are we handing them ammunition to fire back at us?

  The bottom line is this: before you call someone a false prophet, you’d better make sure that they are. Before you accuse someone of being a false prophet, you’d better make sure that your Father in Heaven agrees with that assessment and that you have irrefutable biblical evidence to support your claim and, that it isn’t just a matter of not seeing eye to eye on something. Our job isn’t to go around accusing fellow Believers falsely, our job is to love one another and to bare one others burdens.

  For the sake of your soul, your personal reputation and being careful not to make our Father, our Savior and the rest of the Christian world look bad: don’t ever accuse someone of being a false prophet unless you’re absolutely sure your Father instructs you to. You might find yourself at odds with the Father if you’re wrong and bring an unfounded accusation against one of His anointed.

Peace, love and blessings from our Father to you and your family,

He's Coming

  At 3:13 AM, Thursday June 7, 2012, this word came to my spirit and I do believe it came from the throne of Yehovah God. I would strongly urge you to hear it, take it to heart and obey it.
Prepare for my Son’s coming. Get your house in order for His coming is near at hand. The point of no return has been breached and the time of critical mass has arrived. The coming events are being revealed to my prophets; you would do well to hear their warning. Pray, repent and bring in the harvest for the Sabbath rest is near at hand. Put your house in order says the Lord, and prepare to come home.”

Amos 3:7 (KJV)
7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJV)
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words

Revelation 22:20 (KJV)
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
  I’m not speaking to you as a preacher, teacher, prophet or anything else; I’m speaking to you as someone who loves you and is concerned about your immortal soul and the place where you will spend all eternity. It doesn’t matter if you believe in God, believe in Jesus or believe that there will be such a thing as the Rapture or eternity: what you doesn’t matter at because it won’t change the reality you’re going to be faced with one day very soon. There is One God and his name is Yehovah. He is the God of creation and the Father of Yeshua, Jesus.
  The words of Jesus and the words of the Bible prophets are playing out every evening on your television when you watch the news. The countries talked about in the end time prophecies are the very countries where all the turmoil and wars are happening. Everything the prophets talked about is coming to pass at an alarmingly fast rate and, the Bible is once again proving to be accurate, right down to the last period and comma.
  We’ve reached the point of no return; the point where our prayers will not delay, postpone or in any way effect God’s ultimate plan. Jesus could come back to catch His faithful Christians away at any second. This event, called the Rapture, could happen before you finish reading this article. The question is would you go if Jesus called or would you be left behind to face death during the seven years of tribulation? Would you really be caught up to meet your mom, dad, grandpa, grandma; your son, your daughter or your friends in the air and then go on to Heaven to be with the Lord? Only you can make the choice as to where you’ll spend eternity: have you made up your mind.
  Look, if you can’t serve God now, when no one is hunting you down like a criminal; when the police don’t have your picture on a most wanted list, and when the most that would happen is someone might poke fun at you. If you can’t openly serve Jesus now; what makes you think you’d have the courage to stand for Him when to do so means your head will be removed from your body? What makes you think you’ll be man enough or woman enough to take a stand for Jesus when you can’t do it now?
  After Jesus takes the faithful Christians out of this world, more than half the world’s population will be killed by war, nuclear war, famine, pestilence, wild animal and execution. The odds are less than 50-50 that you will survive the seven years of the tribulation. If you can’t take a stand for Jesus, denounce Him and accept the RFID chip in your right hand or forehead (the Mark of the Beast) then your soul will be damned to Hell for all eternity and there is no forgiveness for this.
  I’m begging you, please consider this. Jesus said that the generation that saw all the signs of His return come to pass at the same time, that generation would not pass away until all would be fulfilled: and that includes the Rapture and the Second Coming of Jesus to earth. For the first and only time in man’s history, the generation you and I are living in right now is the only generation to see all the signs come to pass at the same time. We are the LAST generation on earth before the Rapture and the tribulation.
  I’m begging you, please, ask God to forgive you of your sins, accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and put away your foolish pride. Become a true Believer in Jesus and live the short time we have left as a follower of Jesus and help lead as many souls as possible to the saving knowledge of Christ.
  Yeshua, Jesus could come at any second and, if you aren’t ready, you will be left behind. Jesus is coming sooner than any of us can know, please ask God to forgive you and come go with me in the Rapture of the Church.
In Christ’s service,

Making A Short Film

  About a year ago the Father gave me a story about a backslidden Christian who found himself left behind after the Rapture. I wrote the story and even read the story on my radio broadcast. I never had any idea that the Father had more planned for this story, until a few days ago.

  The Father told me to make a movie from the story He had given me, and my reply was "who me"? I have never made a movie, never produced a movie and I've never written a movie script and now, I'm in pre-production to film this story. One of the things that bothered me was that I didn't have a camera good enough to make this film. All I had was just a small video camera which has a lot of limitations and not nearly enough recording time. The Father made a way that someone donated a Panasonic video camera, not a home movie camera, but a professional video camera capable of not only making this movie, but it will also allow me to do ministry videos as well.

  I'm working on the screenplay and pre-production for this short film and figuring out what small pieces of equipment and props will be needed to complete the film. From the script and what little I know about making a film, I think this film will not be more than an hour long. It will be released on YouTube first so that people can view it and then it will be made available on DVD for those who want a copy.

  While not giving away the plot or any of the components of this film, I can tell you that it will be a great soul winning tool. It's sure to be a film you want to show to your unsaved family and friends. I would really appreciate your prayers for this important project and the twenty or so volunteer actors that will be playing the parts. I hope to film it in June and July with TouTube release sometime in August. More details when they are available... if you live in the Denton, DFW area and would like to be part of the cast or crew, shoot me an email.

Blessings, peace and love,
