My brothers and sisters in Christ, our 3 day Labor Day holiday weekend begins tonight…
and based on an undercurrent I am seeing and sensing in the news,
and the ominous warnings of the Holy Spirit within me concerning especially this long weekend and/or Constitution Day on September 17th,
and the prophetic dreams of Pastor Dana [pastor of a church in Kentucky] concerning notably dire events the Lord had warned him are going to take place in our Nation during September and especially in November [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TdpMSMP9x4]…
I fully believe we are going to witness utter chaos and destruction throughout our Nation beyond anything we have yet seen. Rampaging mobs of criminal anarchists and insurrectionists are going to be burning and looting, destroying and terrorizing, a number of our major cities. And this is just the beginning!
These are God’s judgments being visited upon our Nation. In arrogance and pride, our Nation’s leaders have become so impressed with their self-professed wisdom in all their counsels, they are not able to discern our own best interest, nor bring anything to pass for the public good. God’s judgments can reach the minds of men to fill them with darkness and horror, as well as their bodies and estates; and those are the severest of all judgments which make men a terror to themselves and cause them to become their own destroyers. That which they contrived thinking would secure us would instead lead to our Nation’s ruin! Those that will not walk in God’s counsels are justly left to be ruined by their own; and those that are willfully blind to their duty deserve to be made blind to their interest, and, seeing they loved darkness rather than light, let them grope at noon-day as in the dark. [Excerpts from Matthew Henry Commentary]
You will live in such fear that the sound of a leaf driven by the wind will send you fleeing. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear, looking after those things which are coming upon the Earth. [Lev 26:36; Lk 21:26] In this manner of judgment noted above, God has put into motion self-destruction; He is now literally causing us to destroy our own selves! Professing to be wise, they became fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22]
Shall a trumpet be blown in the city and the people not be alarmed and tremble? Shall disaster or evil occur and the Lord has not caused it? Surely the Lord God will do nothing without warning you through His servants the prophets. I, the Sovereign LORD, have now done this. [Amos 3:6-7]
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the Earth: for the powers of Heaven shall be shaken. When God spoke from Mount Sinai His voice shook the Earth, but now He makes another promise: “Once again I will shake not only the Earth but the heavens also.” This means that the things on Earth will be shaken, so that only eternal things will remain. When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. [Heb 12:26-27; Luke 21:26, 28]
And so, my brothers and sisters, first of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. Even so…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, you ought to live a holy and godly life as you look forward to the coming Day of the Lord! Everyone who has this hope purifies himself, just as He is pure. So, beloved, since you are expecting these things to happen, be eager to be found by Him at His coming living a pure and blameless life and at peace…in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts. Let me warn you therefore, beloved, that knowing these things beforehand, you should be on your guard, lest you be carried away by the error of lawless and wicked persons. I don’t want you to lose your own secure footing. But grow in the special favor and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He Who called you is Holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am Holy.” [2 Peter 3:3, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16]
Even so there is a remnant whom God is raising up for Himself…a Godly remnant who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. True worshipers such as the Father seeks will worship Him in Spirit and Truth. There is only a small remnant of souls who long to live faithfully in that Sacred Covenant relationship with God for which purpose we were created, who seek to become the true worshipers that please the Father, who desire to be the mirror of the Almighty we were called to be. There is only a small remnant of God’s children who desire to live their everyday life faithful to their solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ. There is only a small remnant who wholeheartedly embrace God’s Love…so amazing, so Divine that it demands my soul, my life, my ALL. There is only a small remnant to whom Jesus alone is their crown of glory. God enable us by the Power of His Indwelling Spirit to embrace His purposes and thereby be counted part of that remnant!
Just as God raised up a remnant of just 1% of all the men Gideon had marshaled to fight against the Midianites, even so there is a holy remnant whom God is raising up for Himself in these Last Days…a Godly remnant of the 1% of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes.
God’s holy remnant is called to life of self-sacrifice and self-denial. “I am telling you the truth: a grain of wheat remains no more than a single grain unless it is dropped into the ground and dies. If it does die, then it produces many grains. If anyone would come after Me, he must sacrifice and deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. Those who treasure their physical life on Earth, serving only themselves and their own interests, will lose it; those who place no value on their own self-life in this world willingly exchange it for treasure in Heaven…an eternal life in glory. Whoever has no regard for his physical life here on Earth…has no possessive love for this world, neither cherishes the things this world has to offer, but willingly and voluntarily lays it all aside…as a result stores up for himself the treasure of an eternal life in Heaven. If anyone serves Me, he must continue to follow me and cleave steadfastly to Me, conforming wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying. Wherever I am, there will My servant also be. If anyone serves Me, My Father will honor him.” [Luke 9:23-24; 14:27; John 12:24-26]
A large crowd was following Jesus. He turned around and said to them, Whoever loves his father or mother more than Me is not fit to be My disciple; whoever loves his son or daughter more than Me is not fit to be My disciple. Whoever does not take up his cross and follow in My steps is not fit to be My disciple. Whoever tries to gain his own life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for my sake will gain it. But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it? Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you. They would say, There’s the person who started that building and couldn’t afford to finish it! Or what king would go to war against another king without first sitting down with his counselors to discuss whether his army of 10,000 could defeat the 20,000 soldiers marching against him? And if he can’t, he will send a delegation to discuss terms of peace while the enemy is still far away. So you cannot become my disciple without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own. [Matt 10:37-39; Luke 14:25-33]
Abba Father…Not my will, but Thy will be done. Nothing that I do or say in the way of my expression of worshiping You is good or pleasing or acceptable to You if, first of all, before everything else and above everything else, “not my will, but Thy will be done” is not the supreme characterization of my life…in everything. Nothing that I am engaged in doing is good or pleasing or acceptable to You if it did not originate from the leading of Your Holy Spirit.
If it did not originate from the leading of Your Holy Spirit, then its origin is my human spirit, and is therefore an expression of “my will be done.” I am then holding on to my self-life and my self-interests…things that are pleasing to me. Your Divine Son Jesus, Father, emphatically said, “I only do what My Father shows me to do; I only speak the words My Father gives me to speak.” In His discourse with the Jewish authorities, Jesus said, “I have much to say about you, much to judge and condemn you for. The One Who sent Me, however, is truthful, and I tell the world only what I have heard from Him.” [John 8:26]
Obedience is what characterizes the life of Your child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night. Obedience was the point of Adam’s failure; obedience was the point of Christ Jesus Your Son’s perfection, Father. His perfect obedience in the character of His human nature…even unto death… was absolutely necessary in order to qualify Him as the Redeemer of Mankind. In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for Whom and through Whom everything exists, should make the Author of our salvation perfect through suffering. [Heb 2:10] Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from what He suffered and, once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him. [Heb 5:8-10]. And having taken upon Himself a human nature, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death…even death on a cross! [Phil 2:8] And to this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps. [1 Peter 2:20-21]
I am called to a life of obedience…and obedience originates with the leading of Your indwelling Holy Spirit. Because you are My child, I have given you the Spirit of My Son to dwell in your heart, and He continually cries out, “Abba, Father!” All who are indeed My children are continually led by My indwelling Holy Spirit!
Abba Father…Your children are continually being led by Your indwelling Holy Spirit. And You have so lovingly assured me, Your child, that I needn’t be like a cowering, fearful slave in Your Presence. Your Holy Spirit, God’s eternal gift, doesn’t make cowards out of us. He endues me with power and love and a sound mind…that I should freely abide with You as Your very Own child, adopted by birth into the bosom of Your Family, crying out unashamedly without reservation to You, “Abba, Father!” For Your Holy Spirit speaks to me deep in my heart, reassuring me that indeed I really am Your child! [Rom 8:14-17; 2 Tim 1:7]
Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:
- Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church.
- Pray for the cleansing of the corruption in the Church. God is going to expose and purge corruption within His Church, and separate the wheat from the chaff…separate His True Church from the apostate churches that are pretenders and no longer belong to Him.
- Pray for a Great Harvest of souls.
Arise My bride, and prepare for battle. There is going to be severe Satanic, demonic attacks against God’s holy remnant of committed, uncompromising, steadfast Christians, pastors, and leaders [not the lukewarm], and against marriages and families.
Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face. Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Beloved…be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. Be alertly waiting for your master’s return from the wedding feast, so you may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those whom the master finds ready when he comes. You also, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect! [Jesus…Rev 22:12-13; Luke 12:35-37, 40]
ENDURE TO THE END
Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith I will give the right to eat the fruit from the tree of life that grows in the Garden paradise of God. [Rev 2:7]
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:
