BLESSINGS OF FAITH
Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…
- I will give the right to eat the fruit from the tree of life that grows in the Garden paradise of God.
- will in no way be harmed by the second death. Therefore, remain faithful, even to the point of death, and I will reward you with the crown of life.
- I will give to eat some of the hidden manna of Heaven. I will also give you a white stone with a new name engraved on it, known only to the one who receives it.
- and remains obedient to My will to the very end, I will give authority and power over the nations. Your authority and power over them shall be like that which I Myself have received from My Father.
- will walk in fellowship with Me, arrayed in garments dazzling and white. I will never blot out your name from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge you as Mine, and openly confess your name in the Presence of My Father and His angels.
- I will make a pillar in the Sanctuary of My God. Never again will you leave it. I will write on you the name of My God and you will be a citizen in the city of My God…the new Jerusalem…which will come down out of Heaven from My God; I will also write on you My Own new name.
- I will give the privilege to sit beside Me on My Throne, just as I Myself overcame and am now seated beside My Father on His Throne.
ETERNAL PROVISION: Gift of My Holy Spirit
Abba Father, You have shown me clearly, beyond the shadow of any doubt… Satan has no power, no authority whatsoever, to touch my physical possessions, my physical body nor to touch my life. Generally, he is permitted to attack my mind and my thoughts. He attempts to distract me from what You have given me to do, Father;
he attempts to discourage me with his lies, desiring to shipwreck my faith;
he attempts to draw me away from the Holy of Holies, where he can effectively entice me with the evil desires of my own heart.
These are three  things Satan has no power or authority to touch…
- My possessions…The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he [Job] has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” [Job 1:12]
Job proclaimed, I came naked from my mother’s womb, and I shall have nothing when I die. The Lord gave me everything I have, and they were His to take away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. [Job 1:21];
- My physical body…“Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give all he has for his own life. But stretch out Your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse You to Your face.”
The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.” [Job 2:4-6]
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who is in you, Whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. [1 Cor 6:19-20]
- My physical life…The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.” [Job 2:4-6]
The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life. [Job 33:4]
The work of Satan…what he endeavors to do, is to…
- Fill my mind and my thoughts with distractions, so as to lead me to wander away from focusing on the work my Father has given me to do…the ministries He has given me, along with their responsibilities;
- Fill my mind and my thoughts with deceptions, so as to mislead me with lies and counterfeit leadings of the Spirit, so as to shipwreck my faith or lead me along the wrong path;
- Draw my heart away from the Holy of Holies with attractions and affections that compete with my attraction to my Lord, and my affection for Him. He knows that if he can lead my heart to wander from the safety and security of my Father’s unclouded Presence, he can then entice me with the evil desires of the sin-enslaved nature of my own heart.
Abba Father…Satan prowls about like a roaring lion in this manner, with these objectives, seeking those whom he may devour. My heart is so prone to wander, my mind and my thoughts so prone to wander. Father…hold me close in Your loving arms and embrace my heart…hold me close to Your bosom, that I might not wander away from You. Watch over me, protect me, and keep me safe. I am safe and secure when I am abiding with You in Your unclouded Presence in the Holy of Holies. The work of Satan is to draw me away from the safety and security of the Holiest, and then to entice me with the evil desires of my own sin-enslaved human nature. Once I am seduced by my evil desires [as was Eve], those evil desires conceive, and give birth to sin. If I continue on in sin until [that] sin reaches maturity, then sin gives birth to spiritual death…death to my usefulness to God because of the consequences of that sin unto death [as with Sampson]. [James 1:14-15]
My beloved child…give Me your heart, and let your eyes keep to My ways. Listen, My son/daughter, and be wise; keep your heart on the right path. If your heart is wise, then My heart will be glad! **(your name)**, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to My words and do not let them out of your sight. Keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to your whole body. Above all else, My child, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life; it influences everything you do!
Abba Father…when I received Christ Jesus Your Son into my heart, to be joined together with Him in a Sacred Covenant relationship, I solemnly vowed to have and to hold Him above all others, and above all else this world has to offer, as the choicest, most precious treasure of my heart. There must not be anyone, or anything, that competes with my attraction to my Lord.
I love the house where You live, Precious Lord…the place where Your Glory dwells. How lovely is Your dwelling place, Lord God Almighty! My soul yearns…even pines and is homesick…for Your courts; my heart and my flesh cry out and sing for joy to You, the living God! I find my home and my resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in the arms of my God. Whom have I in Heaven but You, Father? And Earth has nothing I desire besides You.
“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.
Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!” [Matt 13:44-46; 6:21]
These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go with the multitude, leading the procession to the house of God, with shouts of joy and thanksgiving among the festive throng. I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple! [Ps 42:4; 122:1; 27:4]
Better is one day in Your courts, Lord, than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked! For the Lord my God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless! O Lord Almighty…blessed is the man who trusts in You! [Ps 84:10-12]
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Since, then, you have been raised up with Christ, set your heart on the rich eternal treasures that are above, in the Heavenly realms, where Christ My Son is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind and your thoughts on the things of Heaven and the spiritual realm, and not on the things of the Earth and the physical realm. For you died in union with Christ My Son, and have been raised up together with Him into newness of life; your new life is hidden now with Christ Jesus in Me. When Christ, Who is your life, appears, then you also shall appear with Him in Glory! [Prov 4:23; Col 3:1-4]
Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world…the cravings of sinful Mankind, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does…comes not from the Father but from the world. [1 John 2:15-16]
Abba Father…it is good to praise You, 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! My Father and my God, You are exalted forever!
Be exalted above the heavens, Father! Let Your glory be above all the Earth! My heart is steadfast, Father, my heart is steadfast! I sing and make music! Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I awaken the dawn! All praise among the nations belongs to You, Father; I sing of You among the peoples! For great is Your love, reaching to the heavens! Your faithfulness reaches to the skies! Be exalted above the heavens, Father! Your Glory is above all the Earth! Hallelujah!
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.”
