December 7

Revelation 7:1-17

After this, the apocalyptic storms raging furiously throughout the heavens and Earth having finally subsided, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the Earth, holding back the four winds of the Earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.  Then I saw another…the Angel of Yahweh… coming up from the east…the Lord Jesus Christ Himself…having with Him the seal of the living God.  He called out in a loud voice filled with majesty and Power to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea, commanding them: “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal of the living God (an extraordinary impartation of the gifts and powers of the Holy Spirit) on the foreheads of those who have consecrated themselves and remained pure from the adulterous and idolatrous defilements of this generation.  These have thereby especially distinguished themselves as the servants and extraordinary witnesses of our God, and are to be marked with a seal so that they may be readily identifiable by all mankind, and also (miraculously) protected and delivered from the wrath of God yet to come.”  Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: exactly 144,000 Israelites from all the tribes of Israel then living in the period of the judgment, who only then are brought to be confessors and praisers of God, while the most of their kindred continue in unbelief and rebellion
From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,
from the tribe of Reuben 12,000,
from the tribe of Gad 12,000,
from the tribe of Asher 12,000,
from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000,
from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
from the tribe of Simeon 12,000,
from the tribe of Levi 12,000,
from the tribe of Issachar 12,000,
from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000,
from the tribe of Joseph 12,000,
from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.
After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the Throne and in front of the Lamb.  They were wearing white robes, attired now in the unspotted righteousness and faultless splendor imputed to the saints, and were holding palm branches in their hands as tokens of their inexpressible joy over their deliverance and salvation.  And they cried out in a loud voice: 
“Salvation belongs to our God, Who sits on the Throne, 
and to the Lamb!”

All the angels were standing around the Throne and around the elders and the four living creatures.  They fell down on their faces before the Throne and worshiped God, saying: 
“Amen!  Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks 
and honor and power and strength be to our God 
for ever and ever!  Amen!”

Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes…who are they, and where did they come from?”  Perplexed, I answered, “Sir, you know.”  And he said, “These are the great harvest of penitent hearts subdued into submission to the Word and Sovereignty of God by the Rider of the white horsethey who have been suffering through and have come out of the great tribulation thus far in progress; though eternity’s higher glories embracing crowns and thrones had passed them by due to their preoccupation with this paltry and perishing world, they have then at last come to their senses and washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.  They have been saved, but only as one escaping through the flames. Therefore, ‘They are before the Throne of God and serve Him day and night in His Temple; and He Who sits on the Throne will spread His tent over them.  They shall abide forever under the pavilion of God in the very shadow of the Almighty, and they shall be His people, and He will be their God.  Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst.  The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat.  For the Lamb at the center of the Throne will be their Shepherd; He will lead them to springs of Living Water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'”

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

At this point in time, we are waiting upon God.  It is in His hands.  The allegations of voter fraud in the presidential election are staggering…farther and wider and deeper than ever thought.  President Trump’s legal team is preparing to expose it all…to expose every one of themThat would account for the current delay in chaotic violence that we are now experiencing…that Pastor Dana saw in one of his 2 prophetic dreams concerning November: There were protesters in the streets.  They were weary, and asleep…and they appeared dirty and dingy, like they hadn’t slept or showered in weeks.  Suddenly, a bell rang…and these people came to life.  They woke up, and I saw people screaming and getting violent over election results.

 My waiting…His revealing…my cooperating and responding:

  • Waiting upon God is the single most important habit of my spiritual life, and the essence of true religion; it is itself the highest privilege of the creature and the highest blessedness of His redeemed child.  As I wait upon God, and cooperate with His grace, and respond to His Holy Spirit, He Personally works in me both to will and to do by the Power of His Holy Spirit.  My soul, wait thou only upon God!  So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” [ Zech 4:6] 
  • Waiting upon God is the essence of a deep and intimate personal relationship with God in Spirit and in Truth.  The personal experience of God as He reveals Himself, His plans, His purposes, His will, is what deepens my knowledge of God, and separates from mere knowledge about God.  There is an eternal separation between knowing God, and knowledge about GodMy soul, wait thou only upon God!  Formerly, I had heard of You only by the hearing of the ear, but now my spiritual eyes see You. [Job 42:5] 
  • I am to live every moment of my everyday life, whether involved in things that are sacred or things that are secular, waiting with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence upon God…for Him to reveal His plans, His purposes, His will, and a deeper revelation of Who He is…so I may then respond, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.  I am never to initiate, never to act according to my own wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  I am only to cooperate and respond, according to the leading and guiding and counsel of the Holy SpiritThis is the blessed life of a deep and intimate personal relationship with my FatherMy soul, wait thou only upon God!  I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. [Jer 10:23]  The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who listens to counsel is wise.  There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. [Prov 12:15; 14:12] 
  • Think what new meaning and promise this gives to my life of waiting upon God…that Jesus gave His disciples this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift My Father promised, which you have heard Me speak about.” [Acts 1:4]  Just as the disciples tarried at the footstool of the Throne waiting upon the Spirit of God, it teaches me ever also to do likewise.  It reminds me that I, too, can only be strong in the life of faith, or the work of love, as I am in direct communication with the Father and Christ Jesus, through the life of the Spirit Who dwells in me.  It is the Spirit of God Who Personally lives out the life of Jesus in me…a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…as I give Him free reign to do so.  And it is the same Holy Spirit Who Personally works out the death of Jesus in me, conforming me ever more deeply into the likeness of His death… death to sin and death to self…in order that I may thereby attain, more and more, to the Power of His resurrection life out from the dead.  It assures me that the Omnipotent God, through the Glorified Christ and the Power of the Holy Spirit working in me both to will and to do, will bring to pass things unexpected, things impossible…all to the Glory of GodMy soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him.  From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides You, Who works for those who wait for Him. [Ps 62:5; Isa 64:4]  You will receive Power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; then, you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth. [Acts 1:7-8] 
  • Confident assurance that it is not in vain: In the confident assurance in God which faith gives, I am ever to remember one thing above all…to wait upon God.  My chief need in waiting upon God, one of the deepest secrets of its blessedness and blessing, is a quiet, confident persuasion that it is not in vain; courage to believe that God will hear and help.  I am waiting upon a God Who never could disappoint His people!  In the utter insufficiency of all human strength, Be strong and let thine heart take courage.  I am to let NOTHING in Heaven or Earth or Hell…let NOTHING keep me from waiting on my God in full assurance that it cannot be in vain!

I want to repeat this morning the summary I had posted yesterday…for the sake of those who come upon my website for the first time.  I sense in the Spirit this week is going to be quite revealing; I am looking forward to the unfolding of our God’s plans, purposes, and will in His-story:  

  • As foretold in 2 prophetic dreams given Pastor Dana, we are currently in the time period where several key words and a key date were given.  The key word…a legal term…in the 1st dream is: DISCOVERY.  There is also a key date specified in this dream: DECEMBER 17The key words in the 2nd dream are the verdict of a court: GUILTY AS CHARGEDhttps://youtu.be/ydpIwdhnucQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n30mbkuQBFA&feature=youtu.be [Watch from the beginning to the 5 min mark] 
  • In the time period between now and that key date…DECEMBER 17, these 2 dreams clearly show that the staggering allegations of voter fraud, lies, and deception pervading these elections, and perhaps other things as well, are going to be exposed!
  • At that point in time, as a result of the massive exposure of rampant fraud, Trump will be declared the winner of the Presidential elections.  We are going to witness prophecy being fulfilled…Headlines: Trump Victory Challenged Everywhere.
  • That is especially why the resulting chaos will be “OFF THE CHARTS.”  It is a complete reversal of Biden’s presumptuous claim to victory and premature celebration, and his arrogant actions unfolding in the news every day as he pretends to be the President-elect.  You will be witnessing rampaging mobs of armed criminal anarchists and insurrectionists burning and looting, destroying and terrorizing.  Washington, D.C. engulfed in a blazing inferno; churches and homes being burned.  People fighting and pummeling one another in the streets, seemingly engaged in a civil war; absolute chaos and destruction off the charts!  Newspaper headline: Shock and Awe in the US.   Wealth and portfolio values plummeting; hyper-inflation.  
  • Following that, beginning in December and extending through January, 2021 will be a period characterized by a nationwide bewildering scarcity of goods, and a debilitating emotional depression pervading throughout the land.  We will be witnessing Nationwide power outages; people standing for hours on long food lines; Baltic Dry Index completely dead…no movement of Global trade; Market crashes and yields lost; God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation.  Here is the link to the prophetic dream foretelling exceedingly dire and ominous events that will take place, verbally picturing graphic details during this period of time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPR1cchbkAE&feature=youtu.be
  • These are the ominous words of warning spoken by the Holy Spirit, Who appears as a white figure at various times in Pastor Dana’s prophetic dreams:Brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things.  Ready or not, Nation, here it comes!  Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength.  Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm!  Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end.”
  • Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/].  A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3] 
    The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm.  Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take place so as to not be overwhelmed by the 2 months December through January of severe scarcity of goods, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression!
  • You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. [Phil 2:14-16]  We have been raised up by the Lord for such a time as this!
  • The propaganda media has been heavily engaged in a fear-mongering program over the past 5 weeks to brainwash, indoctrinate, and groom us for the soon-coming release of the “Coronavirus vaccine.”  They are going to make the case for mandatory vaccination. There are already State Governors who stated they will enforce this mandate!  Airlines and ticket agencies have already stated they will enforce this mandate!  Without having proof of vaccination…whatever form that proof takes…your kids won’t be able to attend school.  You will not be allowed to go to work, or go into any store or facility open to the public, or travel anywhere, or attend any sporting events or live entertainment, or to enter movie theaters, or do anything
  • Take heed, and be very alert!  If you and/or your children take this vaccination, you and/or kids will be marked with a tracking device, and tracked…everywhere you go, and for life!  You will be marked with a tracking device…and you won’t be able to buy or sell without it.  And you will be permanently connected to the internet, monitored and controlled everywhere you go and in everything you do.  They will trot out high profile leaders who will publicly take the vaccination in order to deceive you into believing that everything is safe and OK…but they will not be getting what you will be getting!  You need to seek the Lord for His will for you in this matter, and hear from Him as to what you should do.  As for me…I will in no way EVER accept this vaccine, or any other for that matter. 

But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6]
Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.  

Here is a link to my website where I post my Daily Devotional series Unruffled Rest, Unclouded Joy; you can read the November 21 posting that contains all the links to Pastor Dana’s dreams, or any day prior to that posting as well; they all have the links.  Click on this link, scroll down to the desired date [the current date will always be on top], and then click on continue reading: https://preservechristianfamily.org/category/reflections/ 

BRACE YOURSELF

Wisdom shouts in the streets.  She cries out in the public square.  She calls to the crowds along the main street, to those gathered in front of the city gate: How long, you simpletons, will you insist on being simpleminded?  How long will you mockers relish your mocking?  How long will you fools hate knowledge?  If only you would turn and repent and give heed to my reproof, behold, I will pour out My Spirit upon you, I will make My words known to you.  I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come.  I reached out to you, but you paid no attention.  You ignored My advice, rejected the correction I offered, and would accept none of My reproof. 
Therefore I will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic…when your panic comes as a storm and desolation and calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.  When you cry for help, I will not answer.  Though you anxiously search for Me, you will not find Me.  Because you hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord.  You rejected My advice and counsel, and despised all My reproof.  Therefore you shall eat of the fruit of your own way and be satiated with your own devices.  For simpletons turn away from Me…even unto their death.  Fools are destroyed by their own self-confident complacency.  But all who listen to Me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm. [Prov 1:20-33]

Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath has passed by.  For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity.  The Earth also will disclose the blood shed upon her, and the ground will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt.  They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21]   How long, Sovereign Lord, Holy and True, until you judge the inhabitants of the Earth and avenge our blood? [Rev 6:10]   
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.

PREPARE YOURSELF

We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near! 
God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant 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 a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus Personally walked and dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our forerunner.  You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own.  Obedience is what characterizes the life of My child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night.  You are called to a life of obedience.  Obedience is better than sacrifice; rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as evil as worshiping idols. [1 Sam 15:22,23]

As for those of us who will stand with Christ…I will not be put to shame in anything, but with all boldness, Christ Jesus will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.  It doesn’t matter to me whether I live or whether I die.  For me to live is Christ Jesus living my life in me, and to die is the gain of the glory of eternity.
Abba Father…I acknowledge that my human nature is broken, beyond repair; it cannot be fixed.  It has no power to do anything that is good, or pleasing, or acceptable to You.  It is hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do so.  That is the reason why I have been crucified together with Christ Your Son.  Nevertheless, as can readily be seen, I do live.  Yet it is no longer I in the power of my sin-enslaved human nature who lives, but rather Christ Jesus living my life through me, with me, and in me through the Eternal Power of the Divine nature of Your indwelling Holy Spirit.  Since I have been inseparably united in a living union of oneness together with Him like this in His crucifixion and death, I will certainly also be inseparably united in a living union of oneness together with Him like this in His resurrection.  For I know that my old unregenerate self, subject to the ruling and reigning power of my sin-enslaved human nature, was crucified once and for all together with Christ Jesus Your Son on that cross.  I was baptized together with Him into His death, so that this physical body of sin dominated by my sinful nature might, as a result of God’s power working in me, be rendered powerless, with the result that I should no longer be a slave under the tyrannical rule of indwelling sin.  I who have died have thereby been freed from that wretched relationship I once had with my sin-enslaved human nature under bondage to sin.  And so my new life in Christ…although I am now still living in this physical body of flesh…I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me.  If, however, it is to be life in the flesh and I am to live on for a season here in the physical realm, that means fruitful service for me; so I can say nothing as to my personal preference.  I am hard pressed between the two.  My yearning desire is to depart and be free of this world to be with Christ in the glory of eternity, for that is far, far better.  But to remain here in this world in my body is more needful and essential for the sake of my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Abba Father…what, then, can I say?  Since I have now been raised together with Christ Jesus Your Son into newness of life, I continually set my heart upon the rich eternal treasures that are above, in the Heavenly realms, where Christ Your Son is seated at Your right hand.  I continually set my mind and my thoughts on the things of Heaven and the spiritual realm, and not on the things of Earth and the physical realm.  For I died in union with Christ Your Son, and have been raised up together with Him into newness of life; my new life is hidden now with Christ Jesus in You, Father.  When Christ, Who is my life, appears, then I also shall appear with Him in Glory. [Rom 6:4-6; Phil 1:20-24; Gal 2:20; Col 3:1-4]

Friends, brothers and sisters, this is our Lord’s exhortation…

Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:

  • Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church.  The current ongoing persecution of the Church and of Christians is going to escalate exponentially; it is going to get MUCH WORSE. 
  • 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 no longer belong to Him.  He is going to expose false prophets and teachers, and wolves dressed in sheep clothing pretending to be shepherds.    
  • Pray for a Great Harvest:  It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere; God will use His holy remnant to seek and to save the lost.  There will be a great harvest of souls in these Last Days.  Jesus said to them, “Go throughout the whole world and preach the good news of the Gospel to everyone, everywhere.  With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me. [Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47] 
    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]
      Hallelujah!

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, families, and children.  There is going to be severe attacks and intense persecution coming from pretending “Christians” within the church, against pastors who preach the uncompromised Word of God.  For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching for something self-pleasing and gratifying, they will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.  [2 Tim 4:3-5]
Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you!  He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. [Rev 12:12] 

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. 
One of the seven angels came and said to me, “Come…I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”  He carried me away in the Spirit to a vast and lofty mountain, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God.  It shone with the Glory of God, and its brilliance resembled a rare and precious jewel, like jasper, shining clear as crystal. [John…Rev 21:9-11] 
And I heard a mighty voice from the Throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live among them.  They will be His people, and God Himself will dwell with them and be their God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” [John…Rev 21:3-4]
 

ENDURE TO THE END

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 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.

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.”
