Brothers and sisters in Christ…

Jesus said to His disciples, Are you able to drink from the bitter cup of suffering I am about to drink?  Are you able to be baptized with the baptism of affliction I must be baptized with?  Remember the words I spoke to you: No servant is greater than his master.  If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also.  If they obeyed My teaching, they will obey yours also. [Mark 10:38; John 15:20]  
You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own.  I am telling you the truth: a grain of wheat remains no more than a single grain unless it is dropped into the ground and dies.  If it does die, then it produces many grains.  If anyone would come after Me, he must sacrifice and deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me.  Whoever has no regard for his physical life here on Earth…has no possessive love for this world, neither cherishes the things this world has to offer, but willingly and voluntarily lays it all aside…as a result stores up for himself the treasure of an eternal life in Heaven.  If anyone serves Me, he must continue to follow Me and cleave steadfastly to Me, conforming wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying.  Wherever I am, there will My servant also be.  If anyone serves Me, My Father will honor him.” [Luke 9:23-24; 14:27; John 12:24-26]

Blessed Holy Spirit…You alone are the Divine source of strength that works in me both the desire and the power to walk along the path that Jesus walked in the Garden that night…the only path leading up to the Gate that opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary wherein lies the Holy of Holies.  It is the path of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self…the way that Jesus dedicated for me…the new and living way to God, through the veil, the veil of my flesh that hangs in front of the entrance into the Holy of Holies and forbids access into the unclouded Presence of my Father.  The path that Jesus dedicated for me…the path He Personally walked as my Forerunner…leads up to the Gate that bears on its header the inscription THY WILL BE DONENo one can pass through the Gate and enter into the Heavenly Sanctuary, wherein lies the Holy of Holies, until I first surrender my own free will there to the Gate-keeper.  Jesus Himself, by virtue of the Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of His Blood poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary, rent the veil in two, from top to bottom…that veil that hung in front of the entrance into the Holy of Holies prohibiting entrance into the Presence of God, under penalty of death.  By virtue of the rent veil of His Own flesh…the offering of His will unto death on the altar of sacrifice in obedience to the Father…He guaranteed and secured my eternal access into the Holy of Holies and the inaccessible Light of the Glory of my Father’s unclouded Presence, as my birth-right.

Abba Father…I freely lay my life on the altar of sacrifice, giving You free reign over the course and direction of my life on Earth, to become part of Your holy remnant.  As such, I no longer have any possessions of my own; all that I have belongs to You.  I have no plans of my own; I am here to do Your will.  I have no privileges, no expectations, no rights, no honor; I am Your bond-slave.  My time belongs entirely to You, I have no desires of my own heart, no purposes of my own for my life.  You are Lord of my life, and I live wholly surrendered unto Your plans, Your purposes, Your will.  All of my motives, my attitudes, my dispositions are subservient to You.  Blessed Jesus…I have no attractions to the people of this world, nor the things this world has to offer, that compete with my attraction to You.  You are the choicest, most precious treasure of my heart.  I have no affections for the people of this world, nor the things this world has to offer, that compete with my affections for You.  I have reserved for You alone my sweetest, most tender affections.  I am wholly Yours, and You are wholly mine…wholly surrendered unto God, wholly given for the blessing and salvation of souls.

Revelation 9:1-21

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star…the leader and prince from among the fallen angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation…Satan himself, the Devil…that had fallen from the sky-regions of Heaven to the Earth.  And because of the wickedness of the world, and because people rejected the Lordship of Christ for the lordship of Satan, God, in judgment, granted special powers to the lord of their choice with which to more fully exercise his evil and malignant will.  The fallen star was therefore given the key to the shaft of the Abyss…that dark and horrible prison in which many of the fallen spirits are detained, and many, many strange and evil and malignant beings are shut up…to do with it as he pleased.   Nor did Satan fail to use this power anymore than he failed to exert his full liberty against Job.  When he opened the Abyss, unlocking the door of separation between Earth and hell, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace.  The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.  He invoked a plague, such as the world has never before experienced, and out of the smoke a species of supernatural, infernal, locusts came down upon the Earth and were given the power of a poisonous sting, like that of scorpions of the Earth.  They were told not to harm the grass of the Earth or any plant or tree, but were only permitted freedom to horrify and torment those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.  They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months.  And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man, being perhaps the most intense and most painful that any living being can inflict upon the human body.  During those days of unfathomable torment men will fervently seek death, but will not be permitted to find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them, and they will be forced to endure a living hell in which they will suffer with unimaginable intensity without reprieve, day and night!

The locusts of hell looked like horses prepared for battle.  On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces.  Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth.  They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle.  They are supernatural beings that had tails and stings like earthly scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people, inflicting their torment by means of stings, like the stings of scorpions, for five months.  They had as king over them,  one of Satan’s appointed angels…the angel of the Abyss…whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon, both meaning ” destroyer.” 

The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come!  
The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of the golden altar that is before God, accustomed to crying out for mercy, now crying out for judgment against the crimes of despite and rejection of the atoning Blood of the Son of God committed against it.  It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates”… the very locality where the powers of evil first initiated their assault against the human race!  And the four angels who had been kept bound during all the preceding ages, held prisoners so as to be ready for this very hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.  They at once rushed forth for slaughter, in-breathed with the spirit of death and destruction, putting into execution their murderous and malignant will.  Under their command, the number of infernal horses with riders comprising the evil horde of mounted troops dispatched in dreadful assault against mankind was two hundred million.  I heard their number.

The horses and their mounted riders…the rider was not a separate being but rather part of this supernatural, infernal horse of hell…I saw in my vision looked like this: their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur.  The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur.  A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur… the very elements of hell itself…that came out of their mouths.  The power of the horses was in the sooty, sulfurous, fiery breath that issued from their mouths to burn people alive and to suffocate, and in their tails; for their tails were serpentine, like snakes, powerful and capable of inflicting painful and disabling whip-like lashes, and having heads with which they bite and sting; and with both capacities they inflict severe injury.

The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues spanning a day and hour longer than 13 dreadful, horror-filled, months still, even then, did not repent of the work of their hands; even then they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood…idols that cannot see or hear or walk!  Instead of fearing, loving and trusting in God above all things, they bestowed their loving confidence upon unclean spirits, constructing images of them to facilitate their worship, invoking them for guidance, and placing religious dependence in their impious falsities.  Nor did they repent, even then, of their murders and all forms of sin against human life, their magic arts and indulgent use of drugs and other sensual stimulants, their sexual immorality and general subversion of the sacred ordinance of marriage and its laws, or their thefts, dishonesty, and abject disregard of other’s rights!  [We see all of these evils unfolding even now before our very eyes in our Nation, heralding the far greater intensity of these evils yet to come!] [Revelation 9:1-21]  

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.

Once a great and respected Christian Nation, God has made us the laughingstock of the world.  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, 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]

These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come.  For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. [1 Cor 10:11; Rom 15:4]  For the time has arrived for judgment, and it must begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the Gospel of God?  Since judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News!  If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners?  Behold, since the uncompromisingly righteous are rewarded on Earth, one can be certain that the wicked and the sinner will also receive what they deserve. [1 Peter 4:17-18; Prov 11:31]
See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears My Name; why, then, would you think you will escape punishment?  You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all the inhabitants of the Earth, declares the Lord Almighty.  Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them:
The Lord will roar from on high; He will thunder from His holy dwelling and roar mightily against His land.  He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on the Earth.  The tumult will resound to the ends of the Earth, for the Lord will bring charges against the nations; He will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword, declares the Lord.  This is what the Lord Almighty says: Look!  Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the Earth. [Jer 25:29-32]  

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.” 

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!   A new Democrat reign of terror is upon us, utterly obliterating  our Constitutional Republic, free speech, free press, political playing field, and our personal liberty! 

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 returnsEven 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: Migrant surge will ‘change the country forever.’  Biden’s immigration actions are an all-out attempt to forever change election outcomes.  Democrats are intentionally importing illegal aliens to expand their voting base.  https://www.foxnews.com/media/tucker-carlson-border-situation-country-forever     
  • 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 2020 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, “unprecedented” in the state’s history.  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! 
And now in recent news, “Colorado activates National Guard as ‘blockbuster blizzard’ expected to bury state with snow.  Major winter storm to impact Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota, as well.
 

Perhaps Texas, and now Colorado, 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 their 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.  

BRACE YOURSELF

Morning by morning He dispenses His justice, and every new day He does not fail.  Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled!  She obeys no one; she accepts no correction!  She does not trust in the Lord; she does not draw near to her God.  Its leaders are like roaring lions hunting for their victims.  Its judges are like ravenous wolves at evening time, who by dawn have left no trace of their prey.  Her prophets are arrogant liars seeking their own gain; they are treacherous men.  Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law.  Even so, the Lord within her is righteous; He does no wrong. Yet the wicked, without conscience and without shame, persist in doing evil.  I, the Lord, have wiped out many nations, devastating their fortress walls and towers.  Their streets are now deserted; their cities lie in silent ruin.  There are no survivors…none at all.  I thought, Surely they will have reverence for Me now!  Surely they will listen to My warnings and accept My discipline and correction.  Then I won’t need to strike again, destroying their homes nor visit all my punishments upon her.  But no, they get up early to continue their evil deeds! 
Therefore earnestly wait for Me, says the Lord, for the day when I rise up to the attack as accuser and judge!  For My decision and determination and right it is to gather the nations together, to assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, even all the heat of My fierce anger; for in that day all the Earth shall be consumed with the fire of My jealous anger! [Zeph 3:1-8]

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 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…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!  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.”

Holy:
