My brothers and sisters in Christ, our 3 day Labor Day holiday weekend began Friday evening…
- 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 through a task force of 58 notable Christian leaders across the Nation concerning 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, in a number of our major cities. And this is just the beginning!
Even as I am writing this…here is an excerpt from an article on Fox News:
Democrats have no intention of accepting second Trump term. They are literally threatening violence if Joe Biden does not defeat President Trump in November, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine said Saturday. “If you think that they were sore losers in 2016, you ain’t seen anything yet..Democrats have no intention of accepting defeat at the ballot box,” Devine said on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” Devine called it “information warfare” to benefit the Biden campaign, citing a Washington Post op-ed by Georgetown law professor Rosa Brooks, who says Americans should prepare for war if the election result is anything short of a Biden landslide.

The watchwords concerning these notably dire events that I fully believe the Spirit of God has been warning are going to take place in our Nation during September and especially in November are:
- God is calling a holy remnant to Himself.
- 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
Pray for a Great Harvest
- Arise My bride, and prepare for battle
- Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face
ENDURE TO THE END
Throughout the years since 1973 when our Supreme Court legalized the cold-blooded murder of unborn children, God has Personally brought judgment upon judgment on our Nation…devastating hurricanes, tornadoes, forest fires, drought, flooding, earthquakes, hijacked planes flying into and destroying the Twin Towers and Pentagon, a global financial crisis, withdrawing His Holy Spirit from our Nation. Even so, though God has shown mercy to the wicked, still, they did not learn righteousness. Even in a land of uprightness, they keep on continually doing even more and more evil, with no regard for the majesty of the Lord.
And now, in March 2020, God has sent another, even more severe judgment… again this time upon our Nation and upon the entire Earth, in the form of Coronavirus…a Global Virus Pandemic…that our people would learn righteousness, repent, and turn back to God. This judgment is far more severe than just a pestilence. 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] This is what the Lord did to the Midianites: Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the Midianite camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars that were in their hands. The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, “A sword for the LORD and for Gideon!” While each man held his position around the camp, they just stood and watched as the whole vast Midianite army ran in panic, crying out as they fled. When Gideon’s men blew the 300 trumpets, the Lord caused the enemy troops to begin fighting and killing each other from one end of the camp to the other. [Judg 7:19-22]
Son of man, when a land sins against Me by committing a trespass, and I stretch out My hand against it and break its staff of bread and send famine upon it and cut off from it man and beast…or suppose I were to pour out my fury by sending a plague into the land, as is happening even now worldwide, and the disease kills people and animals alike. As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were there, they wouldn’t be able to save their own sons or daughters! They alone would be saved by their own righteousness. [Ezek 14:12-23]
Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath against your enemies has passed. For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity. The Earth will no longer hide those who have been murdered, and conceal her guilt. They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21]
God is calling a holy remnant of His children to Himself…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.
I had a good friend and brother in the Lord who used to tell me that the Lord had granted him “the desire of his heart”…completely misapplying the Scripture, Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart. [Ps 37:4] He used to justify spending an inordinate amount of time on antiques…a self interest that gave him great pleasure…by saying antiques are a platform that enables me to minister the Lord to other dealers as the occasion arises.
This is what many Christians oftentimes do to satisfy their conscience; they justify away their guilt. They are literally living out Not Thy will, by my will be done. They are doing the things they enjoy in this world, things that give them pleasure. They justify it by saying it is a platform that enables me to minister the Lord to others as the occasion arises. For some it is fishing and/or boating on the weekends. For others it is routinely playing golf; bowling in a league; playing tennis; engaged in a hobby; playing mindless video games; going to the gym; watching sports on television or going to sports events; working a job you enjoy and not because you need the money for the necessities of life; watching favorite television shows/movies; surfing the internet, etc., etc., etc. If the Lord called you into His Presence, to meet with Him face to face, and asked you, My child, what have you done this past week with the allotted time I have given you? Would you be embarrassed to tell Him how you have spent some of your time…a good portion of your time? Would you be able to say to Him Who sees even the secret most hidden things you do, and knows the deepest most hidden thoughts of your heart, I have faithfully inquired of Your Holy Spirit, and I have gone only where He has led me to go; I have been engaged in doing only what He has shown me to do to participate together with Him in His work.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
The Lord’s disciples walked with Him each and every day. They were with Him wherever He went. I don’t believe any of them excused themselves on occasion to attend the chariot races in Jerusalem, or the annual boat show on Lake Galilee. Andrew Murray has said that bearing fruit is not just a part of a Christian’s life; bearing fruit IS my life.
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. You cannot become my disciple without being willing to sacrifice one’s desire for anything and everything you own. Obedience is what characterizes the life of Your child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night. I am called to a life of obedience. All who are indeed My children are continually led by My indwelling Holy Spirit!
Abba Father…Time is the most precious gift You have given me. I don’t ever want to have to stand before You, Father, and be ashamed to tell You how I have spent any hour of my time. I don’t want to spend my time on my self-life…satisfying my self-interests, engaged in doing things having selfish motives, having a self-serving agenda, or to gain something for myself. I don’t want to spend my time engaged in doing any work that Your Holy Spirit is not engaged in doing. I don’t want to spend my time engaged in doing any work that Your Holy Spirit has not specifically called me to do to participate with Him in His work. I don’t want to spend my time on anything that does not contribute to the physical and spiritual well-being of my family. I want to know there is an eternal purpose for what I am doing, that how I am spending my time has eternal value and eternal worth.
Abba Father… It doesn’t matter, then, whether I live or whether I die. All that really matters is that You keep my heart lovingly and joyfully joined with Your will…because The death of my physical body is certain…whether now or later. Even so, I fulfill the Eternal Purpose You have for my existence solely and only by wholly embracing in my heart: NOT MY WILL, BUT THY WILL BE…in everything. This is the defining characteristic of my life…the life of a child of the Most High God. Abba Father…I am to be only where You place me to be; I only go where You lead me to go; I only do what You show me to do; I only present the thoughts You give me to present, and I only speak or write the words You give me to speak or write. That is how I worship You in Spirit and in Truth. Abba Father…the supreme act of worship is: Not my will, but Thy will be done…in EVERYTHING. The supreme expression of worship is spending my allotted time solely and only, wholly and always, on things that have eternal value, eternal worth, eternal purpose. If I don’t worship You in this manner, then none of my “worship” is good or pleasing or acceptable to You. I would be guilty of honoring You with my lips, but my heart is far from You; it is a stench in Your nostrils.
Friends, brothers and sisters…
- 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
Pray for a Great Harvest: And now, Lord God Almighty…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who sow in tears, invoking the Lord of the Harvest, will reap with songs of Joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying bountiful sheaves from the harvest with him! [Ps 126:3-6]
- Arise My bride, and prepare for battle
- 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…keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: if the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him. [Jesus…Matt 24:42-44]
FOR THE COMING OF HIS SON
How ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; and to wait for His Son from Heaven. That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in His times He shall show, Who is the Blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords. [1 Thess 1:9-10; 1 Tim 6:14-15]
My beloved child…waiting upon your God Who is in Heaven, and waiting for the coming of My Son from Heaven…these two God has joined together, and no man may put them asunder. Waiting upon God for My Presence and Power in your daily life will be the only true preparation for waiting in humility and true holiness for My Divine Son Jesus’ promised return to this Earth…the Great Consummation of all things through the Blessed Apocalypse of the Blessed Christ My Son. I, your God and Father, Who in My Own time will reveal My Son from Heaven, is the God Who, as you wait upon Me, prepares you for the revelation of My Son. Your present life and the coming Glory are inseparably connected in God and in you. Waiting upon God must ever lead to waiting for Christ My Son as the glorious consummation of My work; and waiting for Christ My Son must ever remind you of the duty of waiting upon God as the only proof that your waiting for Christ My Son is in Spirit and in Truth.
** **, there is such a danger of your being so occupied with the things that are coming more than with a true love for My Son Who is to come: His purpose for unveiling Himself is to show His servants beforehand what must soon take place during the forthcoming administration of His role and reign on Earth, so that they may make proper and diligent preparations for His imminent return, and for their invitation to the marriage supper of the Lamb. All My children who say you wait for Christ’s coming, be sure that you wait on God now. All you who seek to wait on God now to reveal My Son in you, see to it that you do so as sons and daughters waiting for the revelation of My Son from Heaven.
Child of God! The same Omnipotent Love that is to reveal My Glory is working in you even now to fit you for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. [Titus 2:13] The revelation of My Divine Son Jesus in you, as it is given to them who wait upon God, is the true preparation for the full revelation of Christ My Son in Glory. You are to earnestly wait, long for, and love the appearing of your Lord and Heavenly Bridegroom. Tender love to Him and tender love to each other is the true and only bridal spirit: The Spirit and the Bride, with an intense longing and yearning emanating from the deepest, inmost recesses of their Being for the Great Consummation of all things through the coming of Christ My Son, continually say, “Come!” And let him who hears, in union and in fellowship with the Spirit and the Bride, also continually say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty for these Waters of Life, let him also come and join in fellowship with the Spirit and the Bride; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the Water of Life, to be appropriated solely and only by faith in Christ My Son, by seizing hold upon His promises to His church, and by joining the cry of the Spirit, the yearning of the Bride, and the soul of all right hope, in looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God, even the blessed Apocalypse of the Blessed Christ! [Rev 22:17]
** **, it is when in humility and love you are clinging close to your Divine Bridegroom and your brothers and sisters in My Royal Family, that you are in the bride’s place of watching and waiting, looking and yearning for His imminent return. My Divine Son Jesus refuses to accept your love except as it is love to His disciples as well. Waiting for His coming means waiting for the glorious coming manifestation of the unity of the body, while you seek here to maintain that unity in humility and love. Those of My children who love most are the most ready for His coming. Love to one another of your brothers and sisters in Christ My Son is the life and beauty of His bride, both individually and His Church. Remember…it is God alone Who can give you the deep spiritual life of one who is really waiting for My Son. Wait upon God, and look to Me, for grace to wait for My Son from Heaven in the Spirit which is from Heaven. And you who would wait for My Son, wait upon God daily, hourly, continually, to reveal Christ in you even now.
At that time, precious child, the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and did not take extra oil with them. The wise, however, took extra oil in jars along with their lamps, and so were ready for his coming. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. My beloved children..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!
I solemnly urge you, ** **…keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: if the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him. 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.
Therefore, beloved child of God…continually wash your robes in the Blood of Jesus; 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. Continually and diligently do these things, that you may always abide with Me in the Holiest of All, in My unclouded Presence. The washing of your robes and the keeping of your garments relates to this very attitude and habit of looking for the return of Christ My Son as an imminent event. Beloved child, as you hope to walk those golden streets, and eat of those immortal fruits, see to it that you have your garments clean and your loins girded about like unto sons and daughters waiting for their Lord!
Abba Father, You have lovingly encouraged me, as well as all Your children: The Spirit and the Bride, with an intense longing and yearning emanating from the deepest, inmost recesses of their Being for the Great Consummation of all things through the coming of Christ My Son, continually say, “Come!” And let him who hears, in union and in fellowship with the Spirit and the Bride, also continually say, “Come!” Father, this is surely the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with You: my waiting upon God…watching and waiting, looking off unto You and listening 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 Yourself to me ever more deeply and intimately, and Your plans, Your purposes, Your will for me…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. Hallelujah!
ENDURE TO THE END
** **, I solemnly assure you, those who are My faithful bride, who are continually making proper and diligent preparations for My imminent return and for their invitation to the marriage supper of the Lamb, will receive the blessings I have reserved for everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…
- I will give you the right to eat the fruit from the tree of life that grows in the Garden paradise of God.
- You will in no way be harmed by the second death. Therefore, remain faithful, even to the point of death, and I will reward you with the crown of life.
- I will give you to eat some of the hidden manna of Heaven. I will also give you a white stone with a new name engraved on it, known only to the one who receives it.
- and remains obedient to My will to the very end, I will give authority and power over the nations. Your authority and power over them shall be like that which I Myself have received from My Father.
- You will walk in fellowship with Me, arrayed in garments dazzling and white. I will never blot out your name from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge you as Mine, and openly confess your name in the Presence of My Father and His angels.
- I will make you a pillar in the Sanctuary of My God. Never again will you leave it. I will write on you the name of My God and you will be a citizen in the city of My God…the new Jerusalem…which will come down out of Heaven from My God; I will also write on you My Own new Name.
- I will give the privilege to sit beside Me on My Throne, just as I Myself overcame and am now seated beside My Father on His Throne.
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:
