Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…as they are even now… the people of the world learn righteousness. Though God shows grace to the wicked, even so, they still do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. [Isa 26:10]
They continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. This has been the story of our Nation’ leaders since 1962. Just as Lucifer, in his arrogance and pride, attempted to usurp the rule and authority of God, and was therefore cast out of Heaven and banished to an eternal destiny in Hell, even so…our Nation’s Supreme Court, in their arrogance and pride, acted with brazen presumption to overrule the Supreme Being and made prayer illegal in the Public School system. In 1973, the Supreme Court legalized the cold-blooded murder of unborn children. In 1992, prayer was prohibited at public school events. In 2003, laws prohibiting sodomy were declared unconstitutional. In 2005, the Court ruled that it was unlawful to display the 10 Commandments in court buildings or on government property, and they were to be removed. In 2015, God’s Divine institution of marriage was redefined to include homosexual and lesbian same-sex couples. And now, on June 15, 2020, the Supreme Court elevated Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity to the status of Civil Rights, overriding our Constitution’s foundational principle of Freedom of Religion.
As a result, it is obvious that God has abandoned our Nation for good reason…we have abandoned Him. He has withdrawn His Holy Spirit’s Presence to watch over us and to keep evil in abeyance. What are the visible characteristics readily observable in a Nation…the telltale signs…that are confirmations that God has withdrawn His Holy Spirit from us…has abandoned us in the judgment of abandonment?
- PORNOGRAPHIC CULTURE. Sexual Immorality…a society becomes pornographic. Our society has become ever more and increasingly obsessed with pornography, with millions of websites on the internet available to satisfy its insatiable lusts. This is the first of the visible characteristics readily observable in a Nation confirming that God has withdrawn His Holy Spirit from them…has abandoned them in the judgment of abandonment. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. [vs 24]
- HOMOSEXUAL CULTURE. Homosexuality and lesbianism is both rampant and militant in our society. Gay pride celebrations and parades are advocated and heartedly embraced. Drag queens…men pretending to be women, dressed in a clownish manner in woman’s clothing and gaudy makeup; many of them convicted sex offenders…are invited to public libraries to read to little children from books promoting their perverted lifestyle. Our children throughout the Public School system Nationwide are “chained to their desks” by public school moral and spiritual “child molesters,” where they are being repeatedly morally and spiritually battered, bruised, and raped at will! [Read article Children Under Siege II: https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/06/18/children-under-siege-ii/] The appalling truth is…this is the prevailing atmosphere throughout our Public School system! An ever increasing number of school districts Nationwide are adopting and implementing a radical, graphic, and hideously perverse LGBTQ-laced “comprehensive sexuality” curriculum in grades K-12! This is the second of the visible characteristics readily observable in a Nation confirming that God has withdrawn His Holy Spirit from them… has abandoned them in the judgment of abandonment. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women…lesbians…exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts…homosexual behavior; sodomy…and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. [vs 26-27]
- DEPRAVED CULTURE. Day after day our news media is filled with accounts of virtue being trampled and laid waste. Vice and wickedness have become epidemical; our society sins by trespassing grievously; sinners have become very numerous and their sins very heinous; gross impieties and immoralities universally prevail. Evil has only, continually, and relentlessly escalated, exponentially…and will continue to do so beyond anyone’s imagination, as we have now been clearly witnessing before our very eyes throughout our Nation. We have been continually witnessing an on-going and unprecedented Satanic attack against God’s Divine institution of marriage and family; against unborn children; against our God-ordained physical gender at birth; against our school children to steal their innocence, kill them spiritually, and destroy their morality; against the People of God in our Nation; against our Country’s very foundational Constitution! This is the third of the visible characteristics readily observable in a Nation confirming that God has withdrawn His Holy Spirit from them…has abandoned them in the judgment of abandonment. God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. [vs 28-31]
This is what the LORD says: I am bringing the doom of judgment on this place and this people, just as I stated in My Holy Book you read. My wrath burns against this place, and it shall not be quenched, because you have forsaken Me and worshiped other gods, that you might provoke Me to anger with all the work of your hands. Now I will take back the wine and ripened grain I generously provided each harvest season. I will take away the linen and wool clothing I gave you to cover your nakedness. I will strip you naked in public, while all your lovers look on. No one will be able to rescue you from My hands. I will put an end to all your festivities, and cause all your mirth to cease…all your solemn feasts and appointed festive assemblies…all your “religious” meetings. I will destroy your vineyards and orchards, things you claim your lovers gave you. I will let them grow into tangled thickets, where only wild animals will eat the fruit. I will punish you for all the times you deserted Me for indulgence in promiscuous “religion,” when you burned incense to your images of Baal, put on your earrings and jewels, and went out looking for your lovers…and never a thought for Me! [2 Kings 22:13-20]
ETERNAL PROMISE: MY PROMISED REST. Sheltered in My Father’s Arms
Beloved…you are My child, in whom I am well-pleased. I love you with a fathomless love; you are the apple of My eye. I take great pleasure in you, ** **. Come, abide with Me in the shelter of the Most High…here in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence within the Heavenly Sanctuary, where you will find your home and your resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in My loving arms. I am your Refuge and your Fortress, your God and Father, in Whom you may trust with an unwavering child-like trust, and in Whom you may continually be at rest in an unruffled child-like rest. In My loving arms, ** **, you will find rest for your soul; all shall be peaceful and calm, tranquil and unruffled.
Surely, My beloved child, I shall deliver you from the hidden traps and from deadly hazards. I shall cover you with My pinions, and under My wings you shall abide with Me and find refuge. You will be safe in My care; My truth and My faithfulness will protect and defend you. You need not be afraid of any terror of the night, nor the sudden evil attacks of the enemy during the day, nor of any dreaded diseases that stalk in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death of disasters that surprise and lay waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ** **, and ten thousand at your right hand…but these evils will not touch you! Safe and secure in the secret place of the Most High, you will be only a spectator as you witness the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made Me your refuge, ** **, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your dwelling place. For I give My angels special charge over you, to accompany, defend, and preserve you in all your ways of obedience and service. They will steady you with their hands, and keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the pathway. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes; you will walk unharmed among them…yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
Because you have set your love upon Me, ** **, therefore will I deliver you. I will set you on high, because you know and understand My Name through our deep and intimate Sacred Covenant relationship. Because you are My beloved child, You shall call upon Me and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you. With long life will I satisfy you and show you My salvation.
Precious child…the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire. Since everything on the Earth will be destroyed in this way, ** **, live a holy and godly life as you look forward to that coming Day! Everyone who has this hope purifies himself, just as Christ Jesus My Son is pure. Beloved…continually wash your robes in the Blood of Jesus as you look forward to His imminent return; wash your garments that have been soiled with sin, making them clean again, dazzling and white. Wash your feet with pure water; wash the dust of sin off your feet. Blessed are you who wash your robes, that you may have the right to enter through the gates into the City and eat the fruit from the Tree of Life! Continually and diligently do these things, that you may always abide with Me in the Holy of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of My unclouded Presence. My child…this is your birth-right!
Blessed Jesus…thank You for so wonderfully encouraging me, “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold on to what you have, ** **, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith I will make a pillar in the Temple of My God. Never again will you leave it! I will write on you the Name of My God and the name of the City of My God…the new Jerusalem…which is coming down out of Heaven from My God. And I will also write on you My Own new Name.”
Abba Father…You are a shield around me; You bestow glory on me, and lift up my head. To You I cry aloud…and You answer me from Your Holy hill. I lie down and sleep in peace; I awaken again in the morning, because You sustain me. I will not fear even tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side! For have You not promised? I will never, never, leave you; I will never, ever, forsake you! Assuredly not! O Lord, You are my Help; of whom shall I be afraid? What can man do to me? Thank You, Father, for giving me a good night sleep. Thank You for bringing me safely through the night. Thank You for being my shield and my protector…for watching over me, protecting me, and keeping me safe. Thank You especially for keeping me safe from those temptations and sins that so easily beset me; I am so grateful. Father, I realize…I acknowledge…my sin-enslaved human nature has no power to stand against these temptations and sins. My human nature is a prisoner of sin, held captive by sin, in bondage to sin, enslaved by sin; it is hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do anything that is good or pleasing or acceptable to You. But Your Divine Son Jesus has set me eternally free from the penalty for sin, and He has set me free from the power of sin!
Blessed Jesus…by virtue of the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood, which You poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary for the forgiveness of my sins, there is now no condemnation for those of us who are joined together with You in a living union of oneness as Your bride…the bride of Christ! O death…where now is your victory? Where now is your sting? The sting that causes eternal death is sin…and sin gets its power and authority to cause death from the Law. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the Book of the Law, to do them;” and “The wages of sin is eternal death.”
But thanks be to You, Father…You have given me the victory over both sin and death through Christ Jesus You Son! In Him, You have given me the free gift of eternal life…for the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set me forever free from the Law of sin and death! You have called me out of darkness into You marvelous Light; You have transferred me out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light. I am no longer a citizen of this world, no longer under the jurisdiction of the law of this world…the law of sin and death. I am a citizen of Heaven, and as such I am under the jurisdiction of the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!
Precious Jesus…the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured that the Eternal Holy Spirit was indeed given as God’s Eternal gift to dwell in me…never to leave me, never to forsake me. He is the Power of the Divine nature now abiding in me Who continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life: faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ in our divine marriage; faithfully within the Holy of Holies in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father, in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
Sovereign Holy Spirit…You are my strength! You make my feet like hinds feet; You give me strength and courage to walk along my high places…places of trouble, and hardship, and responsibility. In Your Power, I can say to that mountain, “Who are you, O mighty impassable mountain of human obstacles! You shall become a level plain, a mere mole hill! Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea! Who are you, O great impenetrable wall of human obstacles! You shall become a garden border, a mere stepping stool! Spirit of the Living God…in Your Power, I can climb a mountain, I can scale a wall; my hands can bend a bow of bronze! I can do all things given me to do through Christ Jesus…Who strengthens me! Hallelujah!
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
