Isaiah 18: To a Mystery Nation in a Distant Time

Isa 18 CoverIsa18_ToC

In this 7-verse chapter of Isaiah 18, we read of a nation that stands out among all others – a nation “shadowing (KJV) with whirring wings (NAS) ‘beyond’ the rivers of Ethiopia,” a land surrounded by water, whose people are “tall and smooth” (NAS, NIV) … “scattered and peeled” (KJV); “a nation of strange speech” (NIV); and a nation “whose land the rivers divide.”

These are extraordinary and unique identifiers for any particular nation, and it begs the question: What nation is this?

In these mere seven verses, we see a country that would grow strong, powerful, influential and impressive. We also see where, in the latter times, this land would be heavily judged by the Lord Himself to the point of brokenness, repentance and humility … resulting in a quick and full restoration just in time for the Lord’s Second Coming!

Read the story. Understand the times of the prophecy. Know the course by which a formerly godly nation is revived once again … just in time!

Cashless Society: A World Without Money

Cashless Society bookThis book, published in 1974 by the Southwest Radio Church in Oklahoma City, was Wally’s first book. Only 39 pages long, the book proved to be the outline for understanding how a world without money would be established in the future.

The Internet did not exist in 1974, yet Wally spoke of an eventual “central computer system” that would one day oversee every financial transaction we make — private individuals, companies, government … everybody. He called it Cencom. This system would eventually be attached to every gas pump, soda machine, and retail outlet everywhere. Without Cencom’s approval, no purchases would be allowed.

A plastic card with an electronic stripe on the back would replace the cash in our pocket. Cencom would know our identity by the use of that card.

“Rediscovering Holiness” Index Page


How to Define Holiness

Ch. 1 – “Defining Holiness”
What is it to be “Holy”? What does “Holy” look like, sound like, act like? Another word used interchangeably for “holy” is “sanctimonious.”

In this new series, we address the issue of “What is Holiness?” In doing so, we make some new discoveries about it that are intended to guide us in our life-long relationship with God. Click HERE for audio download (52min).


Ch.2-New Model_New Man

Ch. 2 – “NEW MODEL OF THE NEW MAN: The Marriage-Mindedness of Holiness” 
2 Cor. 5:17 tells us that, in Christ, a person becomes a “new creation,” meaning we never existed prior to our new birth. No history! No past! How is that even possible? How can “ALL” things become new when we bring with us into this new relationship excess baggage of memories?

Here we look at the dynamics of romance. Something remarkable happens to an individual when they “happen upon” that special someone in their life. What happens in the life of one who, unexpectedly and suddenly, finds themselves caught in the “path of love” eventually becomes the “pattern of love” that changes them into a new person. We’re calling it the “Marriage-Mindedness of Holiness.” Click HERE for audio download (40min).


Ch.3-Appointed & Anointed

Ch. 3 – “Appointed, Then Anointed for Holiness”
Being new creatures in this new creation, we are truly free to be people totally different from what we were. In this new reality, we discover that as we are accepted and received by Him, He makes us “holy.” 1 Cor. 6:11 (NAS) — “you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified …” Upon our being accepted by Him, we are assigned (appointed) by Him unto Holiness. We are declared “a holy nation” by the One Who is Holy Himself (1Peter 2:9-10). As appointed, we are then anointed to do the Works of Holiness. We are endorsed and equipped to do what before was deemed by us as impossible. Click HERE for audio download (36min).


Ch. 4 – “From Humility to Meekness”
Entrance into the Kingdom of God in our earthly lives and into the welcoming arms of our Lord is no place for ego, pride, and ambition. In that embrace, He calls us “holy” (Prov. 10:12; James 5:20; 1 Peter 4:8). In His presence … in His arms … in His Kingdom … He takes total control. Because of the power of this kind of surrendered love on His part, we don’t ever want to leave. It is this embrace, this union, that remains constant throughout our walk on this earth. As we remain in submission before Him, yielding to His Love, His Wisdom, His Guidance, His Counsel, we mature in knowledge of His Ways in all things. We grow in Him. And it’s “the meek (who will) inherit the earth” (Mat. 5:5). Click HERE for audio download (42min).


Ch. 5 – “RANSOMED LIVES: Kept and Covered”
In 2 Peter 1:4, we read that the Lord has granted unto us His “precious and magnificent promises.” Some might even qualify as “shocking”! For further emphasis, David declares in Ps. 56:12, “Thy vows, O God, are binding upon me!”  Perhaps the most remarkable of His promises is found in His protection of us. To the righteous, the Lord promises unfettered protection and covering against those attacks that would threaten our lives. Isa. 43:3-4“Since you are precious in My sight, since you are honored and I love you, I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life.

Ch. 6 – “REMITTANCE OF SINS: Cornerstone Doctrine of the Church”
As “Sons of Royalty” (1 John 3:1), we enter a process of training through which we are made “fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ … in everything.” (Eph. 4:13-15 MSG). Part of that training takes us back to the “cornerstone moment” when the Cornerstone Himself (Eph. 2:20) made a cornerstone declaration at the birthing of the Church in that Upper Room. In these last days, the Church needs to what we’re calling the Lord’s “Cornerstone Doctrine” that, once applied, would guarantee the gates of hell will never prevail (Mat. 16:18)!

Ch. 7 – “SONS OF ROYALTY: The Child of Royalty is Royalty Himself!”

Redemption declares a legal return to original ownership. It’s the act of being redeemed to a former state of existence and purpose. Renewed once again after having been lost, and then found again. If we were made by God, do we not belong to God? To be made by a maker is to be owned by that same maker! If that is true, then there was an original Purpose for which we were made, and that Purpose resides within Him — the Maker, the Creator. He had a Reason for our creation. What was that Purpose? Why were we made? Why does a king give birth? To bear  … heirs!

The child of royalty is raised to know who he is and what he has been born into. He is never allowed to forget that so that he may grow knowing exactly who he is as he learns to exercise rule in his father’s kingdom. Click HERE for audio download (63min.).


Ch. 8 – “The Power of Holiness”
To the righteous (holy), it is written: 2 Chron. 16:9 — “For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.”

This power is both encompassing (surrounding, covering) and empowering (imparted).

Ch. 9 – “The Significance of This Power”
The Power of God – granted unto the righteous for the use of His Glory – is not reserved for the immature in Christ (Lu. 9:54-56)! It is to those who have shown themselves to be firmly anchored in their faith, trust and dependency upon Him!

The significance of this power made available to us is no small thing to God. He honors it, exalts it and commands it! It leaves its mark on the earth and it resonates through Heaven itself!

Rediscovering Holiness

Rediscovering Holiness_Feature

“They will be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. – Malachi 3:17-18 (NAS)

In the “sunset portion of the prophetic day” (the end of the end-times), a day was coming when the Lord would begin preparing His “possession” for … what? I believe the answer is — His return!

In our own lives, we always make preparations for THE Big Day … no matter what that big day, or big event, might be. As we draw near to it, the more attention we give to it and our preparation for it. It could be a vacation … or the visit of a friend … or a party … Whatever it is, we always make preparation for its arrival because it’s different and (at that moment in time) more important than anything else that surrounds it.

For that “last” generation spoken of by Jesus in Mat. 24:33-34, special attention will be given to their preparation like none other that has ever gone before. This principle is addressed throughout end-time Bible prophecy.

It is in the context of this realization that I prepared and taught this series by this title. As the Lord prepares the world for His soon return, His “highest priority” is the holiness of His saints. Again — His highest priority is holiness! Why? Because He is coming for His bride who, because of her love for her King, has “has made herself ready” for His appearing (Rev. 19:7-8). He is holy and, therefore, she is holy (1 Peter 1:14-16).

So, what is holiness exactly? Believers have long believed (and non-believers as well) that “holiness” has something to do with being “sanctimonious” (a “holier-than-thou” mentality). Ask someone to describe “holiness,” and you are given descriptions of what holiness looks like and what holiness does. Attitude, behavior, conduct, presentation, conviction. While “holiness” may be depicted in each of these attributes and patterns, it’s not in any of these where is found the starting point for “holiness.”

Holiness begins in identity … not activity!

And this is where our study begins … (Click HERE for the Study Index page)

The Cry of a Man — the Centurion’s Story

The “Rest of the Story” behind the poem presented here —

It was just a few days before my 12th birthday in December 1962. A Sunday afternoon. We were home from church, had finished lunch, and the family was napping. I was cleaning the lunch dishes when my thoughts went to the Centurion at the cross. After a few moments imagining the scene, I “suddenly” sensed this poem rising up within me. I went to the den, got a tablet and pencil, sat down and began writing. I still, to this day, have the original tablet page with the penciled poem. Amazing!

The poem has been picked up and published in newspapers and magazines everywhere. It’s been dormant for many years … but, one Saturday night in 2015, in my sleep, I kept having visions of the black storyboard for this poem. It’s as if the Lord wanted this poem “resurrected” from the shadows in commemoration of “Resurrection Day” celebrations going forward.

So, here it is, in a renewed restoration of its own. Enjoy and be blessed.

“The Shaping of a Disciple”

Potter and clay[1].

 Dale Stone (1965)

When God wants to drill a man,

And thrill a man, and skill a man

To play for Him the noblest part —

When He yearns with all His heart

To build so great and bold a man

That all the world shall be amazed –

Then watch God’s methods, watch His ways!

How He ruthlessly perfects Scuplting

Whom He royally elects;

How He hammers him and hurts him,

And with mighty blows converts him,

Making shapes and forms which only

God Himself can understand,

Even while His man is crying,

Lifting a beseeching hand …

Yet God bends but never breaks

When man’s good He undertakes;

When He uses whom He chooses,

And with every purpose fuses

Man to act, and act to man,

As it was when He began;

When God tries His splendor out,

Then man will know what He’s about!

America in Prophecy_CDAmerica in Prophecy
“Alas, oh land of whirring wings which lies beyond the rivers of Ethiopia (NAS).  Go, swift messengers, to a people tall and smooth-skinned, to a people feared far and wide, an aggressive nation of strange speech, whose land is divided by rivers.” (NIV) – Isa. 18:1-2

In this message, we take a closer look at the details of this prophecy of Isaiah 18. If, indeed, this is a prophecy about America, it helps us to better understand America’s future as the world moves closer to the return of Christ.

Oil in Israel_CDOil in Israel

“And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil.” – Deut. 33:24

“…they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand.” – Deut. 33:19

Major media worldwide are reporting on massive exploration projects currently underway in Israel that promises to make the country a prime producer and exporter of oil and gas. In the early ’80s, Wally was a public spokesman for “The Asher Project,” giving daily progress reports of this early search for oil in Israel by Houston’s Energy Exploration, Inc. In this message, Wally presents the prophetic scriptures relative to this miracle scheduled for “the last days.” (Gen. 49:1)

Ransomed Lives_CDRansomed Lives: The Wicked for the Righteous

“Since you are precious in My sight, Since you are honored and I love you, I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life.” – Isa. 43:4 NAS

“The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.” – Prov. 21:18

Found among the “exceeding great and precious promises” (2Peter 1:4) are those that address God’s protection of His covenant believers. Wally presents an exciting review of these promises that encourage us to better understand the benefits of being “more than a conqueror.” (Rom. 8:37)

Worthy to Escape_CDWorthy to Escape

“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” – Lu. 21:36 KJV
“… I also will keep you from that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” – Rev. 3:10 NAS

There is an element of depth to these two passages of promise that goes beyond “Rapture Watch” for the believer. It goes beyond “having the strength to endure,” as some translations suggest. It’s a message that goes to the fact that Jesus is addressing the dedicated disciple whose heart is set to always please the Lord at all times, and the Lord’s response to that dedication. As we go deeper into the end-times, it’s critically important that believers re-connect with these promises.
