December 8

Revelation 8:1-13

When He opened the seventh seal, there was an intense, ominous, awe-filled silence in Heaven for about half an hour.  All Heaven became mute, motionless and breathless, waiting with solemn expectation, with adoring anticipation, for the momentous culminating manifestations of the Divine Presence that were about to unfold with the breaking of that seventh seal.  And I saw the seven archangels…the highest ranking and mightiest of all created beings throughout all the universe…who stand continually before God, always in His immediate Presence, and to them were given the seven trumpets with which sounding they are to execute the manifestations of the terrible Majesty and Power of God in His oncoming administrations.

Another Angel, the Angel of Yahweh…the Lord Jesus Christ Himself…Who had with Him a sacred golden censer, came and stood at the altar.  As The Great High Priest, He was given much incense to offer, such incense coming alongside and mingling with, and being offered for, the enrichment of the prayers of all the saints, to be offered on the golden altar before the Throne of infinite Godhead and Eternal Majesty.  The smoke of the incense, mingling together with the, until now, unanswered volumes and oceans of prayers of the saints that have ever entreated their God that “Thy Kingdom come!  Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven!,” perfumed with the precious fragrance of His Own meritorious favor and righteousness, sanctified with the sacred fire from the altar, went up sweet and savory before God from the Angel’s hand.  He offers them as approved and endorsed by Himself, and for such acceptance that their fulfillment may be delayed no longer but now eternally satisfied as the Presence angels are about to put their awe-filled trumpets to their lips, to enforce the holy indignation of that Throne against all who stand in rebellion against it, dethroning forever and ever the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth!  Then the Angel of Yahweh took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the Earth, thereby Himself initiating the oncoming climax of the Day of wrath that has come to avenge His Own elect in answer to their innumerable prayers.  And there came dreadfully ominous peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake, heralding that Day of Judgment in which the Earth shall burn as an oven, in which all the proud and ungodly shall be as stubble to the devouring flames! 

Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them, predetermining the order and method of their proceedings by which they would execute the awful transactions assigned them. 
The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came a mighty tempest of hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the Earth, to envelop itThe bloody storm raged with such fury throughout all the Earth that a third of the Earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up; all the world was smitten with a bloody, putrid, charred blackness.

The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something of a fiery meteoric mass, looking like a huge mountain, all ablaze with seething, thundering, flashing flames, was thrown into the sea.  A third of the sea turned into blood, with the result that a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, which looked to be a comet blazing like a torch, fell from the sky in another spectacular meteoric display, sweeping over and depositing its deadly particles on a third of the rivers and then plunging into the Earth, thereby having its same deadly impregnating effects on the sources of a third of the underground springs of water.  The name of the star is Wormwood…named after a bitter, intoxicating, poisonous herb.  A third of the waters of these rivers and springs were affected by the deadly particles infused into them, and turned poisonously bitter, and many people died from the waters that had thereby become bitter.

The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark.  A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night, thereby disturbing the seasons, hindering the ripening of fruits and harvests, and filling the world with chilliness and sickening gloom.

As I watched, I heard an eagle-saint that was flying in midair…one from among the assembly of raptured saints now gathered together with the Lord (“Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together”)…call out to those remaining on the Earth in a loud voice of merciful forewarning, giving opportunity that they may turn their hearts’ to the Lord before it is too late, and seek refuge in Him: “Woe!  Woe!  Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!”

I want to repeat again this morning the summary I had posted the last several days…for the sake of those who come upon my website for the first time.  For those who have been diligently following along, I would encourage you to forward this posting to anyone whom the Holy Spirit prompts you to do so…if you haven’t done so already.  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.   Here also 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/ 

  • 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 at some point 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.  [For whatever it’s worth…the numerical value of the letters in the word “corona” X 10 = 666]  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.  

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!

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]

The only singing during this time of His harvest will be done by the believing remnant who trust God and are delivered!  Throughout the Earth the story is the same; this is the fate of all nations…only a remnant is left, like the stray olives left on the tree, or the few grapes left on the vine after harvest.  If the Lord of Heaven’s Armies had not spared a few of us, we would have been wiped out like Sodom, destroyed like Gomorrah.  In that day the Lord will reach out His hand a second time to bring back the remnant of His people.  A remnant will return; yes, the remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God.  [All born-again children of God are spiritual Israel]  But though the people of Israel are as numerous as the sand of the seashore, only a remnant of them will return.  The Lord has rightly decided to destroy His people.  Yes, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, has already decided to destroy the entire land.  But all who are left shout and sing for joy!  Those in the west praise the Lord’s majesty.  In eastern lands, give Glory to the Lord!  In the lands beyond the sea, praise the name of the Lord, the God of Israel!  We hear songs of praise from the ends of the Earth, songs that give Glory to the Righteous One! [Isa 1:9, 11:11, 10:21-23, 24:14-16]  Hallelujah!  

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 in these coming days!  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. 
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl.  The great street of the city was of pure gold, translucent as glass.  I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its Temple.  The city has no need of the sun nor the moon to give it light, for the glory of God illuminates it, and the Lamb is its lamp. [John…Rev 21:21-23]
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]
   

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 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.”
