August 16

Behold, I am coming quickly!  My reward is with Me, and I will render to everyone according to what his work merits.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.  Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to enter through the gates into the city and eat the fruit from the Tree of Life. [Jesus…Rev 22:12-14, 2:7; John 10:7-9]

God’s Divine Decree:

God has determined by Divine decree that our Nation will be destroyed.  Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat!  Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.”  The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused. [Deut 28:28]  God has Personally stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22]

This was a Nation founded under God, with a Constitution to protect our rights and freedoms…especially the core freedom to worship without persecution.  But the leadership of this Nation decided to remove God from the entire fabric of society… continually and methodically.  We are now a god-less Nation!  God has therefore now brought severe judgment upon America… much more far-reaching than just a virus.  He has caused our very foundational Constitution to be trampled upon and shredded!  The destruction of our Nation has already taken place with God’s withdrawal of His Holy Spirit from America.  We are witnessing it as it unfolds before our very eyes!

In an article posted by Todd Starnes [Christian radio commentator] yesterday: The Tennessee Department of Education set aside $1 million in federal funding to establish the Child Wellbeing Task Force.  Their plan is to dispatch “wellbeing liaisons” across the State to “ensure all children are checked-in on.”  According to the State, “a wellbeing liaison shall connect with each child in the county and/or a caretaker of a child from birth through the completion of grade 12 if enrolled in school, or 18 years of age, including children who are homeschooled.”  And they will be interviewing the children without the parents being present in the room!  The task force will also “empower local communities to meaningfully engage in ways that support child wellbeing.”
Many parents are livid…demanding to know what right the State has to come into their homes and check on the well-being of their children, and to interview their children without the parents being present?  https://www.toddstarnes.com/faith/tennessee-ordering-at-home-wellbeing-checks-on-every-child-in-state/?fbclid=IwAR147XR7keovgA4GqtPWaOMFJWqR2aNsLLp_wYDKCNZjYxCvqgegKC9rTXE

My brothers and sisters…this is absolutely unconscionable and unacceptable, and by no means should you allow these “wellbeing liaisons” to invade the privacy of your home and your family!  NO WAY!  As I have written a number of times before, and now here is another example of it actually happening…I believe that oftentimes the persecution will come suddenly and without warning upon an individual, and if we have not already prepared for it in advance, we will be taken by surprise and caught off guard…and tempted to bow down, shrink back, or compromise.  Christians across Tennessee are called to stand steadfast and immovable with Christ.  I especially sense the need as a watchman to warn again the people of God to prepare NOW for the severe persecution that will come upon each one of us, and has already begun…to count the cost, and be willing to pay the price, of standing steadfast and immovable with Christ.  We must not bow down to the tyrant’s golden image: Our God is able to deliver us from your fiery furnace, O king; but even if He chooses not to…even so, we will not serve your gods or bow down to the golden image you have set before us. [Dan 3:18]  We must not shrink back: My righteous one will live by faith.  And if he shrinks back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him. [Heb 10:38]  We must not compromise: Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.  But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. [Josh 24:15]

Christians in their everyday home environment cannot remain silent in the presence of what God calls evil…to hear evil and remain silent would be to convey our agreement, or at least a lack of disagreement.  Bonhoeffer… renowned Pastor, theologian, and martyr in Nazi Germany…proclaimed that “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil; God will not hold us guiltless.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.”  Jesus said to His disciples, Are you able to drink from the bitter cup of suffering I am about to drink?  Are you able to be baptized with the baptism of affliction I must be baptized with?  Remember the words I spoke to you: No servant is greater than his master.  If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also.  If they obeyed My teaching, they will obey yours also. [Mark 10:38; John 15:20]

God has brought severe judgment upon America… much more far-reaching than just a virus.  He has set in motion the emotional self-destruction of our Nation.  All of our Constitutional freedoms and rights we have always enjoyed and taken for granted are being stripped away from us through the continual propaganda of fear.  Fear has caused us to voluntarily accept tyranny, and fear has been the cause of a great escalation of suicides…especially among the young.  In the past month…25% of 18-24 year old’s have considered suicide!  Here is a video clip posted by Tucker Carlson [Christian Fox News commentator] that documents this exponential and heart breaking increase in suicides, and puts it into chilling perspective:

God’s determined purpose for our Nation to be destroyed has nothing to do with who wins the upcoming Presidential election.  If our current President is re-elected, the self-destruction will play out more slowly as it has been doing all along, and if there is a new President, the self-destruction will be immediate and swift.

ETERNAL PURPOSE:  RELATIONSHIP.  Abba Father!

My beloved child…give Me your heart, and let your eyes keep to My ways.  Listen, My son/daughter, and be wise; keep your heart on the right path.  If your heart is wise, then My heart will be glad!  **(your name)**, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to My words and do not let them out of your sight.  Keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to your whole body.  Above all else, My child, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life; it influences everything you do!

Do not store up for yourself treasures on Earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourself treasures in Heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  So set your heart on the rich eternal treasures that are above, in the Heavenly realms, where Christ My Son is seated at My right hand.  Set your mind and your thoughts on things of Heaven and the spiritual realm, and not on things of Earth and the physical realm.  Do not love the world or the things it has to offer.  In so doing, you show no real love for Me.  For the things this world appeals to…your sinful desires, your desire to have everything you see, your foolish pride…do not come from Me but come from the world.  The world and its desires will pass away, but the one who does My will shall live forever!  So fix your eyes not on what is seen in the physical realm, but on what is unseen in the spiritual realm.  What is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Precious child…I will dwell in you and walk with you, and I will be your God, and you will be My child.  Walk away from the corruption and compromise of this world; separate yourself from these things.  Don’t link up with those who will lead you into pollution, and I Myself will receive you.  I will be a Father to you, and you will be My son/daughter.

**(your name)**, only My Holy Spirit can work in you a pure heart.  And so I urge you to obey only the Holy Spirit’s instructions.  He will place you where you are to be, lead you where you are to go, show you what you are to do to participate with Me in My work.  He will give you the thoughts you are to think and to present, the words you are to speak or write.  If only you would just give Him free reign, beloved child…then you won’t always be doing the wrong things your sin-enslaved human nature wants you to do.

Abba Father…Because of Your steadfast love for me, I know there is nothing You would ask of me…to be for You or to do for You, to learn of You or just, perhaps, to suffer because it is part of Your plans, Your purposes, Your will for me…that would be unreasonable, or too much to ask.  And so, I need no longer be anxious… about anything…as I realize this: You know the plans You have for me…plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me a hope and a future.  I am Your workmanship, created in Christ Jesus Your Son to do good works, which You Yourself have planned in advance for me to do.

And so, Father, in the Power of Your enabling grace, manifested and exercised in me through the Eternal Power of Your indwelling Holy Spirit…it no longer matters to me where You place me, or how…whether in serious perplexity, or in positions of great difficulty, or in circumstances of great pressure and trial.  It no longer matters whether You place me at all, or when.  It no longer matters where You lead me to go, or what You show me to do; what thoughts You give me to think and present, what words to speak or write.  These things are rather for You to consider than for me.  For in the easiest position, still, You must give me Your grace; and in the most difficult, Your grace is more than sufficient.  It is enough for me knowing that You know why You place me where I am…whether to do, or to learn, or just, perhaps, to suffer.  It no longer matters to me what I do or what I suffer.  All that matters is that You keep my heart lovingly and joyfully joined with Your will.

Should You place me in serious perplexity, I know You will give me much guidance.  Should You place me in positions of great difficulty, You will give me much grace; should You place me in circumstances of great pressure and trial, You will give me much strength.  I have no fear that Your resources may prove to be unequal to the emergency… and Your resources are mine, for You are mine, and are with me, and dwell in me!  Have You not promised, “I will never, never to leave you; I will never, ever forsake you… assuredly not!”  I trust in You with an unwavering child-like trust, and depend upon You with an unreserved child-like dependence, that Your Holy Spirit will indeed lead me and guide me, showing me what to do and when, continually and unceasingly day and night!  By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on the way they were to take, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.  Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.  

Abba Father…in the Power of Your enabling grace, I have set my heart to watch for You and wait before You, to look off unto You and listen for Your voice, with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation, for You to reveal to me Your plans, Your purposes, Your will, and a deeper revelation of Who You are…so I may then respond, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of Your Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.

Blessed Holy Spirit…I freely lay my life on the altar of sacrifice, giving You free reign over the course and direction of my life on Earth.  As such, I no longer have any possessions of my own; all that I have belongs to You.  I have no plans of my own; I am here to do Your will.  I have no privileges, no expectations, no rights, no honor; I am Your bond-servant.  My time belongs entirely to You, I have no desires of my own heart, no purposes of my own for my life.  You are Lord of my life, and I live wholly surrendered to Your plans, Your purposes, Your will.  All of my motives, my attitudes, my dispositions are subservient to You.  Blessed Jesus…I have no attractions to the people of this world, nor the things this world has to offer, that compete with my attraction to You.  You are the choicest, most precious treasure of my heart.  I have no affections for the people of this world, nor the things this world has to offer, that compete with my affections for You.  I have reserved for You alone my sweetest, most tender affections.  I am wholly Yours, and You are wholly mine…wholly surrendered unto God, wholly given for the blessing and salvation of souls.

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.”  

Holy:
