Brothers and sisters in Christ…

I love my Country; I grew up here, and worked here, and enjoyed the freedoms we were given here.  Even so…this Country is no longer the Country I grew up in.  It has become something else…something totally different, something strange and foreign to me.  Here is a current-day snapshot of life in the FSSA…the Fascist Socialist States of America.  We need to be fully aware of what is taking place in our Nation in order to know how to be prepared as ministers of the Lord during these end times:

Revelation 18:1-24

After this I saw another Angel coming down from Heaven…the Angel of Yahweh Himself!  He had great authority, and the whole Earth was illuminated by the Glory of His splendor.  With a mighty voice that carries within itself the power to effect what is spoken…immediately, completely, and continually…He shouted: “Fallen, as a system of abominations!  Fallen, as a City of abominations is Babylon the Great!  She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.  For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries, and the inhabitants of the Earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.  The kings of the Earth committed adultery with her, indulging in the filth of her uncleanness, and the merchants of the Earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

Then I heard another voice from Heaven…the Father Himself…say: “Come out of her, My People, children of Abraham, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues!  Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He will render unto her a recompence.  For her sins are piled up to Heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.  In every form in which she has existed, and throughout all the ages, in all the world, she has been holding up the golden cup of her abominations wherewith she has intoxicated and demented the nations, and filled the whole Earth with spiritual madness.  Therefore, give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done!  Mix her a double portion from her own cup!  Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself!  In her heart she arrogantly boasts, ‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.’  She presumes to think herself invincible, immortal, and forever sufficient in her own possessions against all adversity…and exalts herself over the very Church of God!  Therefore in just one day all her greatness, might, and majesty will come to naught!  Her plagues will overtake her with unexampled suffering, mourning and horror: death, mourning and famine will be her portion!  She will be consumed by fire, sinking into a charred and smoldering desolation, never again to be inhabited, for mighty is the Lord God Who judges her!

When the kings and all the sovereign powers of the Earth who committed adultery with her, and shared her luxury, and on whom they lavished their treasures and courted as their chief delight, see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her.  Terrified at her torment and the smoke of her burning, they will stand far off in horror and dread as they contemplate the consequences of her ruin, and cry: ‘Woe!  Woe, O great City, O Babylon, City of power!  We have leaned upon your mightiness and were enriched by the glorifying power of your greatness, yet in just one hour your doom has come!’

The merchants of the Earth throughout all the world will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes any more…cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and bodies and souls of men.  They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you.  All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.  The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off in horror and dread as they contemplate the consequences of her ruin, terrified at her torment and the smoke of her burning.  They will weep and mourn and cry out: ‘Woe!  Woe, O great City, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!  We have doubled up riches upon riches within your markets…so quickly, so easily, so assuredly…yet in just one hour such great wealth has been brought to utter ruin!’

Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the vast commerce transacted over the sea, will stand far off.  When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great City?’  They will throw dust on their heads in sorrowful mourning as they contemplate the consequences of her ruin, and with weeping and mourning cry out: ‘Woe!  Woe, O great City, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth!  In just one hour she has been brought to utter ruin!'”

But while a chorus of inconsolable lament, disappointment, and terror is upon every potency and activity throughout the world, a voice of grand jubilation springs up spontaneously over all the holy universe, proclaiming, “Rejoice over her, O Heaven!  Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets!  God has judged her for the way she treated you.  God has given judgment against her apostate wisdom, her principles embracing pride, lust, and greed, her godless spirit, her hopes for blessedness and bliss apart from God…all of her vanities and sinful desires of the flesh!”

Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: “With such violence the great City of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again!  The music of harpists and musicians, flute players and trumpeters, will never be heard in you again!  No workman of any trade will ever be found in you again!  The sound of a millstone will never be heard in you again!  The light of a lamp will never shine in you again!  The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again!  Your merchants were the world’s great men.  By your magic spell whereby you were able to present the demon of covetousness…the pursuit and possession of luxuries and wealth…as an angel of light, all the nations were seduced and led astray, and became the willing slave of your base idolatryInstead of concerning themselves with the laws and revelations of God, governments were lured to participate in, and drink from, the golden cup held out by the Mother of harlots…a cup filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries…thereby believing Satan’s great lie.  Even more, in her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the Earth!” [Revelation 18:1-24]

My brothers & sisters in Christ…

Following is excerpts from a prophetic word applicable to our present day generation, given to David Wilkerson [deceased founder and pastor of Times Square Church] by the Lord, preached by him to his congregation in 2007: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uUG4ZTy25s

The prophet Isaiah warns us that in the last days God is going to “turn the world upside down.”  He declares, “Behold, the Lord maketh the Earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down.” (Isaiah 24:1)  According to this prophecy, sudden judgment is coming upon the Earth, and it will change everything in a single hour.  Within that short span, the whole world will witness fast-falling destruction upon a city and a nation, and the entire world will never again be the same.

If you are attached to material things…if you love this world and the things of it…you won’t want to hear what Isaiah has prophesied.  In fact, even to the most righteous of God’s people, what Isaiah says might seem unthinkable.  Many would surely ask, “How can an entire world be stricken in one hour?”

If we didn’t believe the Bible is God’s pure Word, few of us would take Isaiah’s prophecy seriously.  But Scripture makes it clear: in a single hour, the world is going to change.  The church is going to change.  And every individual on Earth is going to change.

The apostle John gives a similar warning in Revelation.  He speaks of destructive judgment coming upon a city and nation: “In one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her….For in one hour so great riches is come to nought” (Revelation 18:8, 17)

In Isaiah’s prophecy, the city under judgment is cast into confusion.  Every house is shut up, with no one coming or going.  “The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in” (Isaiah 24:10)  The entire city is left desolate: “In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction” (24:12)  All entrances and exits to the city are gone.  The passage indicates that a fire has come, a blast that has shaken the very foundations of the Earth (see 24:6)

Let me make it clear at this point: I don’t intend this message to frighten anyone.  Paul tells us that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we have already passed from death into life.  We who call on Jesus as Lord should be confident that no matter what happens in this world, His shed Blood saves and redeems us.  Therefore, we are not to fear any newscast, but rather to be attentive to what the Lord is doing in the world.  Like many people, I hear grievous reports that make me want to tune everything out.  But the truth is, God moves in the midst of such times, and through them he speaks warnings to all who would hear His voice.

I believe, along with many eminent Bible scholars, that Isaiah’s prophecy points to the Last Days.  By that, I mean it points clearly to our generation.  In short, sudden judgment is coming, and Scripture strongly indicates it is now at the door.  “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7)

Sudden destruction comes when the cup of violence overflows.  Sensuality, perversion and greed are running rampant throughout our society.  Yet, when God sent the Flood upon the Earth, it was because of a worldwide eruption of violence: “The Earth also was corrupt before God, and the Earth was filled with violence.” (Genesis 6:11)  

Right now, there are numerous wars and bloody uprisings taking place around the globe.  Yet foremost in my mind is the violence being waged against children worldwide.  I tell you, there is no worse violence than the brutalizing of children.  Heaven is crying out, Woe, woe!  Your judgments have no cure.”

In one hour, God is going to change the whole world.  A sudden cataclysmic event will strike, the first of the final judgments of God.  This great event will cause the Earth to reel.  And Isaiah says that when it hits, there will be no place to escape: “The lofty [proud] city, he layeth it low…even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.” (Isaiah 26:5)  “The inhabitants of the Earth are burned.” (24:6)  Once this happens, utter chaos will erupt.  All civic activities will stop, and society will descend into massive disorder.  Government agencies will be helpless to restore any kind of sanity.  No state troopers, no national guard, no army will be able to bring order to the upheaval.  You well remember that when the Twin Towers were destroyed, help poured into New York from all over the world.  An army of people came to assist in whatever way they could.  But the scene in Isaiah’s prophecy is different: this calamity is clearly beyond humankind’s capacity to respond.

Once this judgment strikes, it will devastate the economy.  Rich merchants will stand by watching in torment, weeping and mourning, as they face bankruptcy.  In an instant, all the wealth they amassed will be reduced to nothing.  John describes the scene: “The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city…For in one hour so great riches is come to nought.” (Revelation 18:15–17)  Overnight, all buying and selling will cease.  Every restaurant and bar will be shut down, and all drinking and music making will end.  Indeed, every trace of mirth and delight, joy and gladness, will vanish: “All the merryhearted do sigh.  The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.  They shall not drink wine with a song….The mirth of the land is gone.” (Isaiah 24:7–9, 11)  

Yes, this is a picture of gloom and doom.  But it is not my prophecy.  This word was given by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God, to be delivered by his righteous prophet Isaiah.  Even the secular world is preparing for it to happen.  Billions are being spent on homeland security in the U.S., England, Europe and Israel.  Why?  Military experts warn that a world-impacting terrorist attack is sure to come.

In one hour, God is going to change the church.  This hour of devastation will suddenly change churches, whether they are alive or dead.  Isaiah writes, “There shall be the shaking as of an olive tree.” (Isaiah 24:13)  The image is of God shaking an olive tree after it has been picked of fruit.  In short, he’s going to shake everything that can be shaken, sparing nothing.  It will be a time of cataclysmic destruction and overwhelming darkness.

So, you ask, What about God’s people in the midst of all this?  What will happen to the church?”  Isaiah gives us an incredible word about what will happen with believers.  In the midst of the terrible shaking, a song will be heard, and its sound will grow steadily stronger.  Suddenly, in that darkest of hours, a worldwide chorus of voices will sing praises to the majesty of God: “They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea.” (24:14)

Do you get the picture?  There will be panic everywhere.  Men’s hearts will fail them for fear, as fires belch smoke seen for hundreds of miles.  Disorder and chaos will reign on all sides.  Yet amid the devastating fires and calamity, the world will hear a glorious song being sung: “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel…From the uttermost part of the Earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous [One].” (Isaiah 24:15–16)  A holy remnant is going to awaken, and a song will be born in the fire.  Instead of panicking, the people of God will be praising His awesome majesty.  Imagine it: in the darkest hour of all time, a collective voice will rise by the millions out of every nation, not in fear or agony, but in joyful praise to the Lord!

How will this happen, you ask?  In one hour, God is going to regenerate and restore His Church.  Dry bones will shake and rattle, and the righteous will be awakened, as the Holy Spirit calls multitudes of lukewarm believers back to their first love.  In his mercy, He’s going to rouse those who have neglected Him, ignoring His Word, avoiding prayer, perhaps even contemplating divorce.  Suddenly, their souls will be flooded with pangs of remorse and godly sorrow.  And many will fall on their knees, crying out in repentance.  There will be a revival of glorifying God’s majesty.  And the song of this revival will be heard from the uttermost parts of the Earth.  East, west, north and south…from Arab lands to China, Indonesia, Africa and all parts of the Earth…a glorious song will rise up from the midst of the fires.  In one day’s time, those who survived the fires are going to be singing a new song throughout the world.

Isaiah 25 tells us wonderful miracles will come in this time, as “God makes all things new.”  All around the world, the Lord’s people are going to “feast” on his Word: “In this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.” (Isaiah 25:6)  And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.” (25:7)  Right now, in this time of prosperity, the world’s masses seem to be covered with a veil, unable to see the truth of Jesus Christ.  But when God rises up to shake the world through judgment, the shrouds covering the minds of billions will be cast aside.  The veil of darkness will be removed, and many will see the Lord in His Glory.  The Holy Spirit won’t force Christ upon these opened eyes and hearts; rather, a remnant is going to rise up from among them.

In one hour, God is going to change us as individuals.  In a single hour, the focus of our lives will be changed.  We’ll no longer obsess about our own adversities and troubles.  Suddenly, so many things that we held dear will no longer be of any value to us.  Why?  In that hour, everyone will be in the same boat: “It shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.” (Isaiah 24:2)  The sudden judgment that comes will not be a respecter of anyone.  Rather, it is going to touch all who are within the realm of its fury.  Presidents, kings, the world’s richest and most famous…all will tremble just like the poorest of the Earth.  And this cataclysmic event will bring to naught every idol, purging iniquity and tearing down all false altars: “By this [the calamity] therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when God maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up [be left standing]” (Isaiah 27:9).

The world’s most prominent idol is money, and right now America is facing a monstrous financial disaster.  Investors are scrambling to move their money out of high-risk funds, and mortgage companies are going bankrupt.  [Note: that was then, but now we are drowning in a tsunami of debt.  Our National Debt [$27.9 Trillion] not only exceeds our annual Gross Domestic Product [21.4 Trillion in 2019], but exceeds it by far!  We owe far more money than we annually make; our Nation has become the greatest debtor Nation in the history of mankind.]  The day is coming when sports will be the last thing on people’s minds.  I have nothing against sports, but soon there will be no more 250-million-dollar deals for athletes, when so much of the world is starving!  All idols will come crashing down, crushed to dust, and the playing field will be leveled.  The richest and the poorest alike will face the same conditions.  It will all happen within a day. When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)  

You may wonder: what good can come of these prophetic messages?  Why should anyone have to live under such anxiety?  I remind you, Jesus warned Jerusalem of sudden devastation to come upon that city.  It was going to be burned to the ground, with over a million people murdered.  Christ explained his warning: “I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.” (John 14:29)  He was saying, in essence, When it happens, you’ll know there is a God Who loves you and forewarned you.”

Paul calls such warnings “light”…insights that expel darkness.  He says, in short: “You are children of light, because you know what’s coming in the future.  So, when destruction comes, and there’s panic all around, you will have the calm of the Holy Spirit.  Something will quicken inside you, and you’ll remember, ‘God warned me.’  This prophecy isn’t a message of wrath to God’s people, but a wake-up call to BEGIN PREPARING .”  [Note: sound familiar?]  God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9–10)  Paul is speaking here of a time of possible destruction.  Therefore, he says, “Comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” (5:11)

In this day of prosperity, nobody wants to hear a message like Isaiah’s.  I certainly don’t want to hear it.  But we cannot ignore it, because it is here at our door.  In such times, Paul says, when we have knowledge that sudden destruction is coming, we are not to tremble or sorrow as the world does.  Instead, we are to comfort one another in faith, knowing that God rules over every aspect of our lives.  “Be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.” (5:8)  Paul instructs, “Arm yourself with faith.  Build up your belief now, before the day comes.  Learn your song, and you’ll be able to sing it in your fire.”  “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel.” (Isaiah 24:15)  

This is the hope of our most holy faith: our Lord causes a song to come out of the darkest of times.  Start now to build up your holy faith in him, and learn to praise His majesty quietly in your heart.  When you sing your song, it will strengthen and encourage your brothers and sisters.  And it will testify to the world: “Our Lord reigns over the Flood!”

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

Here are several video clips…among many…that illustrate and bring into stark reality the ongoing destruction of the America we once knew.  You really should take time to watch these video clips, so as to have a clear understanding where we are heading at warp speed as a Nation…as a preparation for ministry to a lost and dying world:

  • Video clip: The global trace-and-track regime: The Biden administration’s vaccine passport scheme is just the teeny-tiny tip of a massive privacy invasion iceberg.  This week, snoozing Americans finally woke up to the Biden vaccine passport plan and the New York vaccine verification program known as the “Excelsior Pass.”  But these credentialing systems have been in the works for years among U.S. and global health agencies.  The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a joint endeavor of the feds, Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce, the Mayo Clinic, electronic medical records giant Epic, Big Pharma CEOs and globalist nonprofit entities all coordinated by the military-industrial powerhouse MITRE corporation.  These public-private partnerships between tech companies and Surveillance States obliterate any meaningful distinction between “free market” initiatives and government directives.  Big tech, big health and big government all work seamlessly to ensure the success of the global trace-and-track regime.  There is no freedom to choose in a climate of collusion and a culture of conformity.  The conspiracy is real.  https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/michelle-malkin/2021/03/31/the-global-trace-and-track-regime
  • Video clip: Tucker Carlson: ‘I’m infuriated by the lying’ about Biden’s so called ‘infrastructure bill.’  Inflation is becoming a monstrous ‘huge deal’ but no one in media talks about it.  This is most assuredly not an infrastructure bill.  It is a Green Energy, Green New Deal, and Reparations bill.  If you want a reparations bill, if you want a Green New Deal, just say so and let’s have the debate, but don’t call it an infrastructure bill because it’s not.  It has very little…almost nothing…to do with infrastructure.
    The second point I would make is like, at what point do we actually destroy the economy for good by spending money that we print from the Federal Reserve?  Hyperinflation…we already have it.   Look at the prices of commodities and cryptocurrency, look at the prices of building materials, oil, real estate prices.  Asset prices, hard, tangible asset prices are skyrocketing.  It’s called inflation and makes it much harder for the average person to live in this country, to afford to eat, or live somewhere.

  • Video clip: Shaun Hannity: The Biden administration is waging ‘all-out assault’ on American principles; it is intentional on their part to destroy this Nation, and thereby usher in the “Great Reset.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/sean-hannity-biden-administration-waging-all-out-assault-on-american-principles

God’s Divine Decree to destroy our Nation…to abandon America because we first abandoned Him 55 years ago when our Supreme Court banned prayer in our public schools, and then continued to do so exponentially on an on-going basis continually since then…is already an accomplished and finished fact.  Our Nation was founded as a Constitutional Republic under God; we are now a Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship.  What you see above is what a Fascist Dictatorship looks like; no different than Nazi Germany.  

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.  
Here is a link to Todd Starnes Facebook page, where you will find articles posted every day bearing witness to our Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship:
https://www.facebook.com/ToddStarnesFNC?fref=nf

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:

This also has been in the news in the recent past: 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.”
