A Message From Peter James                                   


No Hiding Place



         “Fear them not therefore, for there is nothing covered that

             shall not be revealed, and hid, that shall not be known”

                                   (Matthew 10:26)


                  Psalm 139:7  Where can I go from Your Spirit?

                                 Or where can I flee from Your presence?

                              8  If I ascend into heaven, You are there;

                                  If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.


For quite some time now one section of our Website has quoted the above very pertinent scripture.

We boldly tell you ministers and leading brothers

there is absolutely nowhere to hide.

It is pointless putting others in front of you, while you try to hide behind

those with whom you connive, and egg on to carry out the deeds

which you are not bold enough to carry out yourselves.


When the pupil plays truant, the pupil suffers on his own.

When the teacher plays truant, we are in terrible trouble, his whole class suffers.


There is the classic case of a prophet who played truant.

This man was Jonah.


The Eternal sent Jonah to a wicked city of 120,000 people.

The wickedness of the city meant that its time had come up to receive its punishment,

but first it would be warned.

We are told that these people could not even tell their left hand

from their right hand. (Jonah 4:11)

It is absolutely the same today, Christians are in confusion due to false or unfaithful shepherds.

We are simply at this point giving warning messages as we are directed,  that is all.

Jonah was chosen to issue the warning, just like we have been.

Unlike Jonah, and many of the ministers today, we will neither run nor hide.

Just like the ministers today, Jonah had his own agenda, and ideas,

which differed completely from those of the Eternal,

who had sent him to warn the city of its impending punishment.

He was going to run and hide.


Jonah 1: 1  Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,

2  Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it;

for their wickedness is come up before me.


Jonah did exactly what many of the ministers today are doing.

He bolted in almost exactly the opposite direction.

Instead of going to the North East where he was sent he got on a ship and promptly went West.

We might well ask just what was he thinking?

We can also ask the same question today, just what are the ministers thinking and doing?


3  But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD,

and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish:

so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it,

to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.


In one short verse twice it is stated twice that

his intention was to flee from the presence of the Lord.

He did not realise that he could run but he certainly could not hide.

It is the same for us today, regardless of where he ran, the Eternal was right besides him.

That has never changed.

It is how it is for us all.


Jonah promptly boarded a ship, and went below deck to hide,

and to the ultimate temporary hiding place, to sleep,

which is exactly where most Christians are today.


We simply cannot pretend that the Eternal does not exist, and does not see us all the time,

and that He will turn a blind eye to our disobedience and rebellion.

Jonah was in full rebellion as are many ministers today.


The Eternal got his attention.

He woke him up by frightened sailors who felt that the great wind

was going to destroy their boat.

Jonah wanted to hide.

He was going somewhere where he would be well and truly hidden.

It is the same today, many are trying to do the same thing.

When Jonah should have been awake, he was asleep.

Further more he should not even have been on the boat in the first place.

Those who you would not expect, had to tell him to get up and to call on his God.

We, those you do not expect are doing the same thing, simply because those

who should be giving the warning messages have failed, and are failing to do so.

Such is their dream world, which has become a nightmare,

they do not even believe that the Eternal speaks to his true servants today.


When Jonah confessed to being the cause of the problem,

he got the men to throw him overboard to save the ship and their lives.

Thrown overboard into the rough sea, a large fish swallowed him ,

and took him for a three day ride in the depths of the ocean,

before depositing him where he should have gone in the first place.


If you have ever had to clean a fish, you would know that it is not the most pleasant thing to do.

To have to live inside that environment for

three days and three nights would have been horrendous.


I am afraid that many will have to be rudely awakened and then go through

some unpleasant experience, a Jonah experience,

even to the point of death, in order to learn the lessons which must be learnt.

At least Jonah eventually carried out his commission,

which is more than can be said of many ministers today.


Jonah was an excellent prophet, because the nation,

including the king humbled themselves, fasted and repented.

That is much more than the people today, who feel that they have nothing to repent off.

They feel that they are already like God, perfect.


Jonah 3:10  And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way;

and God repented of the evil, that He had said that He would do unto them; and He did it not.


We have to learn that we can simply cannot flee from the presence of the Eternal.


There is no hiding place.


The very least that we can do is be men, stand up and be counted.

How can anyone ever imagine that they could desert a flock over whom

they claim to be shepherds of Christ, and think that this will not only go unnoticed

by the Eternal, but that they will not have to give a full account of their stewardship?


Ezekiel 34:2  Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy,

and say unto them, Thus says the Lord GOD unto the shepherds;

Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves!

should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

3  You eat the fat, and you clothe you with the wool, you kill them that are fed:

but you feed not the flock.

4  The diseased have you not strengthened, neither have you healed that which was sick,

neither have you bound up that which was broken,

neither have you brought again that which was driven away,

neither have you sought that which was lost;

but with force and with cruelty have you ruled them.

5  And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd:

and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.


Verse 5 clearly states There is no shepherd.

This is relevant to the situation today.

Those calling themselves are not shepherds.

The reasons that this is so is explained in verses 2 to 4.


The arrogance of the non-shepherds is clear to see.

Verse 4 says that they ruled their flock with force and cruelty.

Regardless of what these non-shepherds say, verses 2 and 3 say

that ‘you did not feed the flock’.


Either the scripture is lying or the shepherds are lying when they state that they are feeding the flock.

They are feeding themselves verse 2.

Sheep that are well fed are satisfied.


Rotherham Zechariah  11:17

Alas! for my worthless shepherd, who forsakes the flock,

A sword upon his arm, and upon his right eye!—his arm,

shall be, utterly withered, and, his right eye, shall be, wholly darkened.


BBE  Zechariah  11:17 A curse on the foolish keeper who goes away from the flock!

the sword will be on his arm and on his right eye:

his arm will become quite dry and his eye will be made completely dark.


AV Zechariah  11:17  Woe to the idol shepherd that leaves the flock!

the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up,

and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.


Gill Commentary:

Ver. 17. Woe to the idol shepherd, &c.] Or, "the shepherd of nothing" {w};

that is, no true shepherd, that is good for nothing,

for an idol is nothing in the world, #1Co 8:4 and who is an idol himself,

sits in the temple of God, and is worshipped as if he was God. #2Th 2:4 Re 13:4,8,15

and is an encourager and defender of idolatry:


that leaves the flock; has no regard to its spiritual concerns; does not feed it,

but fleece it, and leaves it to the cruelty and avarice of his creatures under him:


the sword [shall be] upon his arm; with which he should feed the flock:


and upon his right eye; with which he should watch over it:


his arm shall be clean dried up;

his power shall be taken away from him…..


and his right eye shall be utterly darkened;

not only given up to judicial blindness, which has been always his case;

but his kingdom shall be full of darkness,

#Re 16:10 his hidden things of darkness shall be exposed;

all his crafty schemes will be confounded; and all his wit, cunning, and subtlety,

will cease; and everything desirable to him will be taken away from him.

His "arm" may denote his secular power, which shall be taken away from him:

and his "right eye" his knowledge of the Scriptures, judgment in controversies,

and infallibility pretended to by him, which will cease, even in the opinion of men.

Ben Melech interprets it the eye of his heart or mind; and so Aben Ezra.


The reality is that we are living in a goldfish bowl and surely you know

that in a goldfish bowl there is no place to hide.

Every thought, deed and motivation is transparent to the Eternal.


Some have chosen to curse us as if this is not seen and heard by the Eternal.

The more we are cursed and maligned, the more blessed we are.

Never has it been more clear how very, very few have sound minds.


2 Timothy 1:7  For God has not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power,

and of love,

and of a sound mind.


This scripture clearly states that a sound mind is a gift from the Eternal.

That is why it is quite impossible to expect sound deeds from unsound minds.


We, who are used to provide the knowledge on this website,

are not living in an atmosphere of fear and trepidation.

We are not in dread of our lives from the curses being uttered.


Even if you do not agree with us,

Have you not read?


Romans 12:14  Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.


Don’t you think that it applies to you?

Do you think that you are the exception to the rule?


James 3:8  But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

9  Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men,

which are made after the similitude of God.

10  Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing.

My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

11  Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?

12  Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs?

so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.


The very God you claim to represent condemns your action in every single

copy of the New Testament which is on planet earth.


There is no hiding place when you do these things.

Furthermore you can expect to reap catastrophic consequences.

While we are being actively cursed, we have to tell you that we are

being spiritually and physically renewed day by day.


We are most definitely not collapsing in a heap.


Revelation 21:5  And he that sat upon the throne said,

Behold, I make all things new.

And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.


We pity you, and pray for your repentance,

as you diligently activate your own destruction,

as you let your pride and false fellowship put you in the firing line,

as you descend into a black hole of utter darkness and despair,

from which no glimmer of light can escape.

Let those giving you wicked advice do their own evil deeds.

The scripture clearly commands you neither to be wicked nor foolish.

Why do you diligently seek to be both,

when it is clearly stated the end result of that is death?

Are those who are controlling and manipulating you going to take your punishment?


You are in grave error if you think that when you die there is nothingness,

and that you have found yet another hiding place, the grave.

It is simply not true.

Read and Then You Die

Naked, and Alone you will stand before the White Throne of the Eternal,

only to be condemned, if you do not change.

We cannot repent for you.

Only you can do it for yourself.

We desperately hope that you will wake up from your deep slumber before it is too late.

Think of your families.

Ecclesiastes  7:17  Be not over much wicked,

neither be you foolish:

why should you die before your time?


The consequence of wickedness and foolishness is an early death.

Why will you die?


Ezekiel 33:11  Say unto them, As I live, says the Lord GOD,

I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked;

but that the wicked turn from his way and live:

turn you, turn you from your evil ways;

for why will you die,

O house of Israel?


We are not hiding anywhere.

What we say is plain, and there for all the world to see.

With boldness we say the words which the Eternal tell us.

The very words which send you running away, and into hiding.

You act as if you do not live in a goldfish bowl.


There is no hiding place – none.


Ezekiel 12:28  Therefore say unto them, Thus says the Lord GOD;

There shall none of my words be prolonged any more,

but the word which I have spoken shall be done, says the Lord GOD.


Ezekiel 6:10  And they shall know that I am the LORD,

and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them.


Numbers 14:28  Say unto them, As truly as I live, says the LORD,

as you have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:


Isaiah 14:24  The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought,

so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:


Isaiah 55:11  So shall My word be that goes forth out of my mouth:

it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please,

and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.


Some think that if they are in the space station they can escape the events

which will take place on the earth.

Some government officials have given up their jobs to build shelters to hide

from the oncoming disasters.

Some think they are going to be raptured and hidden away on a cloud.

Some think that they are going to camp somewhere safely in a wilderness environment.

Some think that they can hide their spiritual condition behind physical activity.

Some governments build underground villages in which to hide.

The problem for all of them is this.


There is no hiding place.


When the earth is broken up and shaken out of its place,

when it is tilted more that it is on its current axis,

when huge tidal waves which result from this, are accompanied by massive earthquakes,

the underground shelters will become ready made graves.

As there is no rapture, you will live or more likely die on planet earth, on which we are

totally responsible for the oncoming ‘tribulation’.


The space station and all the satellites will come crashing back to earth

and for the most part burn up in the atmosphere.

Even some courageous scientists are saying that the sun,

the moon and planets are now unstable.

The on rushing planet X which is visible to the naked eye,

if you look at the sun with a suitable

blackened glass, is the cause of this instability.


It will only get worse, that is what our Rhema has stated.

Even the popular tabloids have shown pictures of the unusual sunspot activity on the sun.

While everyone is busy, busy sorting out ‘Christmas’, the events which we were told

were going to happen are quietly progressing.

Our readers need to pay careful attention to what we say.

We have never said that the world was coming to an end on a particular day.

What we said was that events were starting.

We all simply have to wait and see what happens.

We have to tell you there will be no time for last minute repentance.

It will simply not exist, so you cannot even wait.

You have to act now.


It might well be that this year the pagan festival of Christmas will be cancelled,

in spite of all the mad spending which has been going on for some time.

There will come a point when we will reap what we have sown.

If we think that we can hide behind our fancy homes with their Christmas trees,

we are sadly mistaken.

Our activities and rituals will not hide us,

but conversely they will actually attract the punishment which they deserve.


There is no hiding place.  


Because the leaders have given up the responsibility of shepherding their flocks,

the Eternal will turn to the women and the children.


King David was a mere youth keeping sheep, when he was anointed to be king over Israel,

and the Spirit of the Lord was with him.


1 Samuel 16:11  And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children?

And he said, There remains yet the youngest, and, behold, he keeps the sheep.

And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.

12  And he sent, and brought him in.

Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to.

And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.

13  Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren:

and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up,

and went to Ramah.


Samuel was a young obedient child when the Eternal first spoke to him.

We should not despise the youth they can be far more pliable than the tough old ‘Christians’.


1 Samuel 3:1  And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli.

And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.


It was just a few words from the Eternal by an inconsequential despised woman

that warned of the destruction of the Recovery and Worldwide Church of God.

This has already started to take place.

Without repentance this is inevitable.


We are so confused that we are quite unable to understand the simplest of things.


Do we really think that because we have leaders who refuse to do their jobs that

the Eternal will put His plans on hold, or even cancel them?

We have big theological discussions, saying that the Eternal will not use women,

and that it is wrong to do so.

Under ideal conditions the men should be the leaders, but these are far from ideal

conditions, these are parlous times.


We are so confused that we send women into battle.

In case we did not realise, it is a powerful woman who sits on the British throne.

She is not merely a figure head as some believe.

I believe that Scotland Yard and MI5 have been or are also headed by women.

Margaret Thatcher, the past Prime Minister was a woman.

Watchman Nee of the Recovery Church was brought to Christ by a woman,

M.E Barber, and she was also his mentor.

Lest we forget, it was to her that he went for advice.   


Let us consider Deborah.


Judges 4:4  And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth,

she judged Israel at that time.


A prophetess, "wife" (woman?) of Lapidoth. Jabin, the king of Hazor,

had for twenty years held Israel in degrading subjection.

The spirit of patriotism seemed crushed out of the nation.

In this emergency Deborah roused the people from their lethargy.

Her fame spread far and wide.

She became a "mother in Israel" #Jud 4:6,14 5:7 and

"the children of Israel came up to her for judgment"

as she sat in her tent under the palm tree "between Ramah and Bethel."

Preparations were everywhere made by her direction

for the great effort to throw off the yoke of bondage.

She summoned Barak from Kadesh to take the command of 10,000 men

of Zebulun and Naphtali, and lead them to Mount Tabor

on the plain of Esdraelon at its north-east end.

With his aid she organized this army.

She gave the signal for attack, and the Hebrew host rushed down impetuously

upon the army of Jabin, which was commanded by Sisera,

and gained a great and decisive victory.

The Canaanitish army almost wholly perished.

That was a great and ever-memorable day in Israel. In #Jud 5:1ff.

is given the grand triumphal ode, the "song of Deborah,"

which she wrote in grateful commemoration of that great deliverance.


Now consider this further.

Barak was the leader of the army.

However, he refused to go into battle if Deborah did not go to the battle with him.


Judges 4:8  And Barak said unto her, If you will go with me, then I will go:

but if you will not go with me, then I will not go.

9  And she said, I will surely go with you:

notwithstanding the journey that you take shall not be for your honour;

for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.

And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh.


The point is that we are all equal before God and if we do not carry out

our appointed duties, someone else will be appointed and anointed in our place,

it can be a woman or even a child.


I know of the lecherous ministers who cannot wait to get their hands on the women in their care.

The women go to the meetings hoping to find God and find some wolves in sheep’s clothing.

It is not as uncommon as we might wish to think.

There are also hundreds of cases surfacing all the time when priests have abused young boys.


Many of our leaders are closely following the activities of the sons of Levi, the Priest.


1 Samuel 2: 22  Now Eli was very old; and he heard everything his sons did to all Israel,

and how they lay with the women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.


To be doing this we must really think that the Eternal only sees us when we put

on our sanctimonious faces and apparel.


We have seen that many of the leaders have not only run away and gone into hiding,

but they are committing abomination in the sight of the Eternal.

How bad is that?

Our political leaders who pretend to be Christians, while they carry out Satan’s plans

need to carefully consider that there is a day of reckoning, with no hiding place.


To think that all of activities are going unnoticed because we are in our secret

hiding place in our minds, is to deceive ourselves.


Every single thing that we say and do is noticed, and recorded ,and for these

we will be called to give an account.

If we have to account for even idle words, much more the far more serious things

mentioned in this document.

The very fact that you have read this document makes you accountable

for what you have read, just as much as I am also accountable for what I have said.


Some feel that there are several possible courses of action.

Some feel that they can have one foot in both camps.

Some feel that they can sit on the fence.

The reality is that there are only two choices, you can be in one camp or the other.

The two positions are one, the Kingdom of Light, God,

and the kingdom of darkness, Satan.

You are either in one camp or the other.

It is utterly impossible to have one foot in each camp.

The other impossible situation is to think that you can hide by sitting on the fence,

and hopefully avoid making any decision.

The thought that as you are not making any waves, you will be hidden,

and that you will not be seen, is a serious error.

The fence which divides Light from darkness, is a figment of the imagination.

It does not exist.

As Adam and Eve had to make a definite choice, so has every one.

Not to make a choice is to choose darkness.

The Kingdom of God will be set up and manifested for the entire creation to see.

You will either be a part of it or you will be in Outer Darkness,

Neither scripture nor Rhema gives us any other choice.

Those in the Kingdom will be highly visible and shine as the sun.

Those in the Outer darkness,  will be hidden  by the darkness.


There is truly No Hiding Place.


Psalm 139:7  Where can I go from Your Spirit?

               Or where can I flee from Your presence?

            8  If I ascend into heaven, You are there;

               If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.


The only way out of this dilemma is turning to Jesus Christ

who sees and knows all things and offers us forgiveness,

if we acknowledge our sin. The first Step is on our knees say:

“God, My God, have mercy on me, a sinner” 


The only way out of this dilemma is Jesus Christ.

         He is the only way of escape.

                 Praise the Lord.

          Come soon Lord Jesus.
