I, Jesus, have sent My angel to announce these things to you in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let everyone who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever desires, let him take the free gift of the Water of Life! [Jesus…Rev 22:16-17; Isa 12:3, 55:1-3]
Our Nation has out-sinned Sodom and Gomorrah as a homosexual, pornographic, and depraved culture…and in addition has arrogantly determined to remove God entirely from the very fabric of our society. When the sin of a people has come to its height, and the Divine decree has gone forth for their ruin, as it has for our Nation, the piety and prayers of the best men shall not prevail with God to end the controversy. Even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were here, they wouldn’t be able to save their own sons or daughters! They alone would be saved by their own righteousness. This is what the Lord said to Jeremiah: So do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with Me, for I will not listen to you. [Jer 7:16]
God is in the process of raising up a remnant of His children who will not bow down, will not shrink back, will not compromise, who will stand steadfast and immovable with Christ and follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. 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. “God will use His holy remnant to reach His lukewarm children, that they would turn their hearts back to God and become part of the remnant. To the angel (pastor) I have placed in charge of the church in Laodicea concerning his congregation and each individual member, write:
These are the words of the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the ruler of God’s Creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot…not willing to give up your pretension and claim to My name, yet having too much love for the world to stand steadfast and immovable with Me. I wish you were either one or the other! Make up your mind, will you please! So, because you are lukewarm…neither hot nor cold…I am thoroughly disgusted with you and am about to spew you out of My mouth! You say, I am rich; I have acquired wealth and have need of nothing. But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked! I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can truly see. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So, therefore, be earnest, and repent!
God will use His holy remnant to seek and to save the lost. There will be many unsaved people who, as a result of the severity of God’s judgments being visited upon the Earth, will turn their hearts to God in repentance and be born again. God’s judgments are an act of mercy…there will be many who will be saved because of the judgments who otherwise never would have turned to God.
The Gift of My Son. I purchased you, by Myself and for Myself, with the Precious and Priceless Blood of My Divine Son Jesus. By virtue of the Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of His Blood, poured out on your behalf on that cross at Calvary, I have forgiven all the sins of those who will receive Him and believe in His Name. Christ My Son has thereby conferred upon those the judicial status of eternal righteousness in My sight. Jesus has clearly stated, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. The only way to the Father is through Me. Jesus said to Martha, I Myself am the Resurrection and the Life.
Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life. God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. Now this is eternal life: knowing You, Father, the One True Living God, and knowing Jesus Christ Your Son, the Messiah Whom You have sent. God Himself has given this testimony concerning His Son: I have granted you eternal life, and this life is given through union with My Divine Son Jesus.
Whoever is joined together with My Son in a living union of oneness possesses that life; whoever is not joined together with My Son in a living union of oneness does not possess that life.
I have written this to you so that you who place your trust in Christ My Son will know, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that you do now indeed have eternal life. [John 3:14-18, 17:3; 1 John 5:11-13]
Beloved child! I have swept away all your sins, and have buried all your iniquities in the deepest recesses of the sea, never to remember them against you again. I have removed your transgressions as far from you as the East is from the West! [Father God…Mic 7:19; Ps 103:12]
As a result of your divine marriage to Christ Jesus My Son, ** **, I have forgiven you of ALL you have ever done…continually, and have blotted out the entire record of charges proven against you…forever and continually erased, purged, and expunged from the record. There is no longer anything recorded in My Book against your name…just as if you had never sinned! You stand before Me dressed in the white robes of the Righteousness of My Divine Son Jesus, pure and holy now in My sight, without spot or wrinkle or blemish.
Don’t you understand, My child? Have you never fully understood? This blessing has opened up to you EVERY other eternal blessing, and without this blessing, no other eternal blessing can be received. By virtue of the judicial status of eternal righteousness conferred upon you through the Blood of My Divine Son Jesus…
- you were adopted into My Family, by literal spiritual birth…born again; you are forever My child, and I am your Father and your God;
- My Eternal purpose for creating you…to be joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship…stands eternally fulfilled;
- you are joined inseparably together with Christ Jesus My Son in an eternal living union of oneness…flesh of His flesh and bone of His bones, through your solemn marriage vows before God to become the bride of Christ
- you have as your birth-right eternal access into the Holy of Holies and the inaccessible Light of the Glory of My unclouded Presence;
- The Eternal Holy Spirit is now given as God’s eternal Gift to dwell in you…never to leave you, never to forsake you;
- The Eternal Power of My indwelling Holy Spirit is now made continually available to you.
Blessed be Your Glorious Name, Father! May Your Name be exalted above all blessing and praise! You alone are the Lord! You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host! You made the Earth and all that is in it, the seas and all that is in them! You give life to everything, Father, and the multitudes of Heaven worship You! Hallelujah!
To whom will I compare You, Father? Who is Your equal? I lift up my eyes and look to the heavens; who created all that is there? You created them, Father; You bring out the starry host one by one, and call them each by name! Because of Your great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing! Do you not know? Have you not heard? My Father is the Everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the Earth! You do not grow tired or weary, Father, and Your understanding no one can fathom! You give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak! Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who wait upon You, Father, renew their strength! They soar on wings like eagles! They run and do not grow weary; they walk and do not faint! So I shall not be afraid, for You are with me! I will not be dismayed, for You are my God! You strengthen me and You help me, Father! You uphold me with Your victorious right hand! Glory to Your Holy Name!
It is good to praise You, Father, and to make music to Your Holy Name, Blessed Most High! It is good to proclaim Your love in the morning and Your faithfulness at night! For You make me glad by Your wonderful deeds! I sing for joy at the works of Your hands! How great are Your works, Father, how profound Your thoughts! Abba Father, You are exalted forever!
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
“Mystery Babylon” in the Book of Revelation is America, and the prophesy written by John is the utter destruction of America. We are the End Times Nation, the 7th and last of the great world powers throughout history that God has determined to utterly destroy. Six have already been destroyed: Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, and Rome. The destruction of America will now usher in the Great Tribulation and the Anti-christ. America has stood in the way of the Anti-christ, and now God, by His Own Divine Decree, has removed and destroyed our Nation…for obvious good reason…and to usher in the End Times of Biblical prophecy.
This is what the Sovereign Lord said to Moses concerning the Israelites, and our Nation’s Founding Fathers warned it would apply to America as well:
If you disobey the Lord your God and do not faithfully keep all His commands and laws that I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you in accordance with God’s solemn resolve to punish you as you deserve for disobeying Him. Cursed shall you be in the city and cursed shall you be in the field. Cursed shall you be when you come in and cursed shall you be when you go out. The Lord will send upon you curses… calamitous events such as fires, floods, earthquakes, [severe winter storms], or pestilence that happen suddenly with a huge loss of life. He will bring confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking Him. [Deut 15-16, 19-20]
This is what the Most Holy, Most High, Triune God declares:
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 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Therefore 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. [Matt 24:36-39, 42-44]
“Behold”, says the Lord Jesus in His last warning for the last opportunity offered to mankind to be among His redeemed, “I come for the last time like a thief in the night to gather those who would be among the elect! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, in watchfulness, prayer and readiness for the summons when it comes, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed, eternally without remedy.”
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Here is a quote uttered in 1935 by Huey Long, an economic populist in the Roosevelt Administration, that was unknowingly prophetic: “If the United States ever ends up with a Fascist government, we will have it under the guise of anti-fascism.” Brothers and sisters in Christ…on January 7, 2021, that prophetic word was fulfilled. We now have a Fascist government! We are now the Autonomous Socialist States of America…The ASSA. We are no longer a Constitutional Republic; we are now a Fascist Dictatorship…just as our Nation’s Founding Fathers warned would be the case if ever we abandoned God. Our Nation will never be a Constitutional Republic again; we will never have a Constitutional President again. The Socialist, Authoritarian regime now has control over all 3 branches of our Government. Make no mistake about it…God Himself has Personally judged our Nation with utter destruction, by His Own Divine Decree. Man did not do this; God didn’t just allow this to happen, He determined it to happen. Just as He did not allow Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed, or allow the world to be destroyed by a Great Flood…He Personally caused it. We are plunging into a deep and very dark abyss in American history, at warp speed!
The finality of God’s judgment is confirmed every day in the news. Here are 3 chilling articles that puts this stark reality into a sobering, irreversible perspective:
- The Biden administration will very quickly grant the right to vote to 20+ million illegal aliens in this country, thereby perpetuating their power and control…until the Lord Jesus returns. Even now as I write, Joe Biden has introduced legislation that now legalizes these illegal aliens. Mark my words, folks. Republicans will NEVER again win another National election. January 7, 2021, marks that infamous day when our once great Constitutional Republic officially became a Totalitarian Dictatorship.
- Video clip: Tucker Carlson: Democrats importing illegal aliens to expand voting base. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-illegal-immigration-numbers-game
- Video clip: Tucker Carlson: Every House Democrat signs on to sweeping HR 1 bill now before Congress. It will legalize going forward all the outright, blatant, in-your-face fraudulent procedures used by the Democrats to hijack our Nation in the presidential elections. HR. 1 is a “Federal government takeover” designed to guarantee we will never have a Constitutional President again. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/every-house-democrat-signs-on-to-hr1
- The EQUALITY ACT has now been brought before Congress, and has already been passed by the House of Representatives. “We are expecting the Equality Act, if it passes the Senate [which it will, because the Democrats control all 3 branches of our Government], will be used to bludgeon religious liberty in this country in ways undreamt of by most Christians.” The utter destruction to First Amendment liberty by these sexual radicals is going to be horrifying beyond measure. “The Democratic Party, run by secular progressives in this country, are in love with the sexual revolution…and they are openly hostile to religious liberty…because, according to Romans 1, these are folks who hate God and hate His created order. So, anything that is in open rebellion to that created order…such as homosexual activity, the destruction of gender norms, which are clearly rooted in biology…anything like that which is representative of the way God has created mankind is going to be in their crosshairs.”
Here is a chilling article from the Heritage Foundation that puts this stark reality into sobering perspective, that you really need to read, to understand the magnitude of the persecution of Christians and Christian churches that Satan is going to unleash in these End Times days: https://www.heritage.org/gender/heritage-explains/the-equality-act
This also has been in the news over the past several weeks: SEVERE WINTER STORM CRIPPLES TEXAS; LIVE UPDATES: Historic winter storm slams Texas with record cold, icy roads. Ice has already started to form on bridges and roadways. An unusually harsh winter storm in Texas has left more than 4 million customers without power in the state amid dangerously low temperatures. Temperatures plunge below zero in some Texas towns as flights delayed, canceled. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Saturday [2/13] that Texas “is facing a very dangerous winter storm” over the coming days that will “make movement virtually impossible.” He called the storm “unprecedented” in the state’s history. Texas reeling from extreme winter weather as another major storm heads east. Nearly half the state’s approximately 29 million residents have been advised to boil drinking water or stop using it. Texas Temperatures climb, power outages repaired but food and water shortages remain. Note: I have seen this in the news now a number of times: there are millions of Texans dealing with broken pipes in their plumbing system because they didn’t drain out the water before the freezing temperatures. There is a desperate cry, a desperate shortage, for plumbers and plumbing supplies state-wide. God alone knows for how long…weeks, even months…many people will be without running water before their pipes are repaired!
Perhaps Texas is just a forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…I don’t know; I can’t answer that. Even so…This is where I continue to stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place. I do know this…Texas Christians who had heeded the warning and were prepared are thanking the Lord big time for the Lord’s provision for their families, and are even now ministering to friends and neighbors in this time of dire need!
And so I continue to encourage you…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 a 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!
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.
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]
We have conveniently chosen to ignore the lessons of God’s judgment of destruction on every great empire throughout history…Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Rome… and now in our present day we have totally forgotten the lessons God has been trying to teach America over the years. Our godlessness has only and continually escalated through the years; we’ve sinned far worse than our ancestors EVER did! We are far more wicked than they EVER were! God has therefore determined by His Own Divine decree to destroy our Nation….and for obvious good reason! Brothers and sisters…IT IS FINISHED!
Beloved…I still hold to these words of warning from the Holy Spirit:
“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.”
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.
We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near! 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. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of Creation.”
Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing. Tell the people, This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it. Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: The time has come for every prophecy of Mine to be fulfilled! [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
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 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]
Wherefore brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by the way which He dedicated for us…a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of His flesh…let us then without further hesitation or delay draw nigh in fullness of faith; here let us continually abide in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10:19-20, 22] Those who abide in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [PS 91:1]
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.
These are the days of the separation of the wheat from the chaff. But also in those days there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves. They preach prosperity, wealth, and health; good times, and all is well. From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit. They dress the wound of My people as though it were not serious. “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush! They will subtly and cleverly teach their destructive heresies about God, even denying the Sovereign Lord Who bought them. Theirs will be a swift and terrible end.
Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of them, Christ and His true way will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies and cunning arguments to get hold of your money. With eyes full of adultery, their lust is never satisfied. They make a game of beguiling and luring unstable people into sin. They train themselves to be greedy; they are doomed and cursed. But God condemned them long ago, and their eternal misery is on the way.
The word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: Hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing! Your prophets, O Israel, are like jackals among ruins. You have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the Day of the Lord. Their visions are false and their divinations a lie. They say, “The Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them; yet they expect their words to be fulfilled. Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken? Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord. My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. [Jer 6:13-15; 2 Peter 2:1-3, 14; Ezek 13:1-9]
- Pray for a Great Harvest. It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere. 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]
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]
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. [Matt 24:10-14]
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.
Then the angel said to me, “Write this down: Blessed are those summoned to the marriage banquet of the Lamb…all true believers who are members of His Universal Church. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with Power and great Glory. And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect…God’s holy people…from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.” And he said to me further, “These are the True Words of God.” [Rev 19:9]
Blessed Jesus…I rejoice and shout triumphantly for joy! I celebrate and ascribe to You glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb draws near, and Your bride, the Universal Church and each of her members, has been preparing herself and has made herself ready! [Rev 19:7] Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! For our Lord God, Sovereign All-Ruler, reigns! Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him Glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready. The finest linen, dazzling and white, was given her to wear. Then the angel said to me, “Write: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage banquet of the Lamb!” [John…Rev 19:6-9; Luke 14:15-23]
The washing of one’s robes and the keeping of one’s garments relates to this very attitude and habit of looking for the return of Christ as an imminent event. Brethren, 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 men waiting for their Lord. [Seiss…Rev 21:9-22:5]
Then the king said to his servants, “The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.” So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding garment. “Friend,” he asked, “How did you come in here without putting on the appropriate wedding garment?” The man was speechless. Then the king told the attendants, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are invited and summoned, but few are chosen.” [Matt 22:8-14]
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.”
