Revelation 11:1-19

Now was to begin the processes of the actual taking possession of the Earth by our triumphant Redeemer, and the active participation of the now glorified saints in these forthcoming administrations: “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?”  I was given a reed…like a judicial measuring rod, but also like a rod of chastisement… and was told by the Angel of Yahweh, “Go (as the representative of what each and every raptured and glorified saint now in Heaven is likewise commanded) into the Holy City Jerusalem and apply the rod in measure of the temple of God and the altar, and measure (“count” in the NIV) the worshipers there, purging them according to a new canon of regulations, laws, and boundaries.  These People, the Jewish Nation, I once again acknowledge and claim as My possession, and they shall be set apart once again and marked off as My chosen people.  For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. But exclude the outer court…the court of the Gentiles.  Do not measure it, because I have rejected it; it has been given over to the Gentiles.  They will then be used as an instrument of God’s chastisement and purging of His chosen people, and will trample on the Holy City for 42 months, persecuting the measured worshipers there, desecrating the measured altar, and setting up an idol in the very marked place of Yahweh!  And so shall it be that I will then give great and extraordinary power to My two witnesses, chosen from among the raptured and glorified saints now in HeavenEnoch and Elijah, the Tishbite: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord.”  And they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth befitting those terrible judgment times when they shall torment them that dwell upon the Earth…times of relentless calamity and unimaginable burdens of woe!  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands…they themselves both the oil and the source of light, the sole lightbearers to a world on the eve of that Day of Judgment in which the Earth will burn as an oven.  They are the ones that had been translated to the presence of Jesus in the heavenly spaces without the intervention of death, and thereby are the anointed who stand before the Lord of the Earth in the present administration of His role and reign as the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.  For it is ‘not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit’, says the Lord of Hosts, working through My two witnesses, that the final restitution of Jerusalem, its temple, its worship, and its system of ordinances will be accomplished, according as I have measured.”  If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies.  This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die.  These men have power to shut up the sky so that it will not rain during the entire 42 months time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the Earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.  Thus were they given power to exercise judgment wrath against the great prevailing sin of idol worship, trust in false gods, and sacrilegious desecration of God’s temple, and to rebuke the blasphemies of unprincipled government, attesting by the nature of their inflictions the near coming of the Almighty to overwhelm forever these bloody tyrants and all their hosts.  To smite the Earth with every plague, as often as they will, and to devour by fire from the breath of their mouth, is the entrusted prerogative of these two witnesses, giving proof to the doomed world by the very breath of their mouth that the devouring wrath of the Almighty is fully kindled, ready to break forth in fiery destruction to all who stand out against His messengers, and is even now ready to be turned into enginery of irresistible destruction to those who still persist in their impieties. 

Now when they have finished their assigned period of testimony to the Truth of God and His purposes, resisting the gigantic blasphemies of the final Antichrist, giving to the infatuated world its last awful warning for repentance before the oncoming avalanche of destruction, and maintaining righteousness over and against apostasy and abounding wickedness, the Beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.  Their bodies will lie in the street of the great City, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.  For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial, in an extraordinary display of fiendishness and resentment so monstrous and unrelenting that it could not be placated even by their death.  The inhabitants of the Earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had so tormented those who live on the Earth with the revolting and distressing judgment plagues they were licensed to inflict upon these worshipers of the Beast. 

But after the three and a half days of death, a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, resurrected by the power of God, and overwhelming terror struck those who saw them.  Then they heard a loud voice from Heaven saying to them, “Come up here.”  And they went up to Heaven in a cloud, in the same manner as the ascension of their Lord before them, while their enemies looked on in horror and dismay.  At that very hour there was a severe earthquake, and a tenth of the city collapsed.  Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the stunned and deeply convicted survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of Heaven.  The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming very soon!

The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in Heaven, a tumultuous outcry of adoring rapture ringing out from the inhabitants of glory, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign for ever and ever!”  And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces in overwhelming praise and adoration as their soul-dissolving joy breaks like a sea of thankfulness against the Throne, and they worshiped God, saying: “We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty, the One Who is and Who was, and Who is now come, because You have taken Your great power and have now begun to reign, and your kingdom shall never end!  The nations were angry; and Your wrath has come.  The time has come for judging each and every one of the dead, and for rewarding Your servants the prophets and Your saints and those who reverence Your Holy Name, both small and great…and for destroying those who destroy the Earth.”  As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.  The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.  They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

Then God’s Temple in Heaven was opened, and within His Temple was seen the ark of His covenant, all the covenants of God with His people and all His solemn promises to them treasured away there, setting forth still further the glory of this momentous occasion.  And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm, heralding the impending breaking forth upon the wicked dwellers of the Earth terrible days of sore scourgings, and afflictions, and unutterable sorrows without end. [Revelation 11:1-19]

While Jesus was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?  Jesus answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you…deceiving you and leading you into error.  For many will appear in My Name, appropriating the Name which belongs to Me, saying, I am Christ the Messiah, and they will deceive many and lead many astray. [Matt 24:3-5]
Many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error.  If anyone says to you then, Behold, here is Christ the Messiah!  Or, There He is!…do not believe it.  For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect.  See, I have warned you beforehand.  So if they say to you, Behold, He is in the wilderness or the desert…do not go out there; if they tell you, Behold, He is in the secret places or inner rooms…do not believe it.   And they will say to you, Look!  He is there!  Or, Look!  He is here!  Do not go out or follow them.  For like the lightning that flashes and lights up the sky from the east, shining and seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be in His Own day. [Matt 24:11, 23-27; Luke 17:23-24]
Thus says the Lord of hosts: Do not listen to the words of the false prophets who prophesy to you.  They teach you emptiness, falsity, and futility and fill you with vain hopes; they speak a vision of their own minds and not from the mouth of the Lord.  They have seen falsehood and lying divination, saying, The Lord says; but the Lord has not sent them.  Yet they have hoped and made men to hope for the confirmation of their errant word. [Jer 23:16; Ezek 13:6]
If a prophet arises among you, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder he foretells to you comes to pass, and if he says, let us go after other gods…gods you have not known…and let us serve them, you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or to that dreamer of dreams.  For the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your mind and heart and with your entire being. [Deut 13:1-3]
Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first…the predicted great falling away of those who have once professed to be Christians [Note: we are now witnessing an unprecedented apostasy within our churches!], and the man of lawlessness is revealed, who is the son of perdition. [2 Thess 2:3]
The coming of the lawless one, the Antichrist, is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of pretended miracles and signs and delusive marvels…all of them lying wonders…and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. [2 Thess 2:9-10]

God’s Divine Decree to destroy our Nation…to abandon America because we first abandoned Him 55 years ago, 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.  This is what a Fascist Dictatorship looks like; no different than Nazi Germany…here are several video clips…among many…that illustrate and bring into stark reality the ongoing destruction of the America we once knew:

  • Video clip: Tucker Carlson: COVID Internment Camps, coming soon to a country near you.  They’re already a fixture of Canadian life, so could they come across our northern border and become a part of our life as well?  Back in November, Justin Trudeau [Canadian Prime Minister] openly admitted what’s going on: It’s not about stopping the coronavirus and saving lives.  No.  This pandemic, he said, is an opportunity to permanently change Western civilization.  This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a Great Reset.  This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.
    At a forum hosted by the World Economic Forum in mid-November, John Kerry…our new climate czar…laid it out just as clearly.  “Yes, it [the Great Reset] will happen,” Kerry said, “and I think it will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.  In effect, the citizens of the United States have just done a Great Reset.  We’ve literally done a Great Reset!  And it was a record level of voting.  We’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time.”
    For power-mad leaders hoping to eliminate centuries of constitutional restraints on their own self-serving ambitions, it is indeed for them an exciting time!  Could what’s happening in Canada happen here in our country?  That’s the question.  We don’t need “Internment Cells.”  Unlike Canada, we have the “vaccine,” and we’re distributing it to tens of millions of people.  Once you’re vaccinated, you can live your life “normally.”  That’s the whole supposed point of the vaccine.  But then you wonder: If that’s true, why are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris still wearing their obedience masks everywhere they go? They’ve been vaccinated.  So has everyone around them.  Why the masks? Why the restrictions?  What’s going on here?  We know for certain it’s not science.
    Well, we hope vaccinated people don’t carry the virus.  Otherwise, why are we getting all these vaccines?  Turns out the “real-world data” confirms common sense. Once you get the vaccine, you don’t need a mask.  So, why is everyone still wearing them?  Why are people with vaccinations walking alone outside with masks on? Why are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris wearing masks?
    These are sincere questions.  You’d think our media would ask that once in a while, but they’re not.  Instead, they’re asking very different questions in the other direction.  In fact, they’re heckling members of the opposition political party…people who have been vaccinated…and demanding they put their masks back on.  But to them it doesn’t matter what the science says.  Wear your obedience mask.  Immediately.  “It would make us feel better.”  Which is the passive-aggressive way of saying “do it, or else.”  You soon come to realize the person who asked Ted Cruz to wear a mask badly wants him tossed into the back of a black van for coronavirus noncompliance, as they are currently doing in Canada.  And not just Ted Cruz, but you, too.  In fact, all the disobedient, politically inconvenient people should be held without trial (on public health grounds, of course) until they no longer pose a mortal threat to the rest of us.  And by “the rest of us,” of course, we mean the “good people,”…the good little boys and girls…the ones who compliantly obey and wear their little obedience masks.

  • Video clip: Tucker Carlson: Biden’s agenda to punish and silence anyone who speaks out against his Fascist Authoritarian regime. https://video.foxnews.com/v/6231853498001#sp=show-clips
  • Video clip: Tucker Carlson: Why the Left wants to shut down Fox News for good: Every other media organization takes its orders from the billionaire class. The Democratic Party is constructing a world designed to serve Jeff Bezos and the billionaire class.  You are an afterthought in that world, and if you get in the way, they will punish you.  Indeed, they already are punishing you.  Your right to say and think what you want, to read and watch what you want…that threatens them above all.  Why?  Because if you have access to information, you can form your own judgments.  A free Internet is their enemy.  The moment they took power, Democrats began a kind of Counter-Reformation against the free Internet.  They started the most sweeping mass censorship campaign in the history of this country.
    On Wednesday, for example, Google pulled a pro-life news site off of YouTube.  Why did they do that?  Simple: Google supports abortion, like a lot of big corporations do.  Hundreds of thousands of subscribers to LifeSiteNews will no longer be watching videos that question abortion, because they’re not allowed to.  On Thursday, Twitter shut down James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Twitter feed.  Project Veritas has been known, Politico announced gravely, to use “deceptive practices” and “spread misinformation” in attempts to expose what it views as ‘corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct’ from liberal organizations or individuals.”  In other words, Project Veritas had criticized the people in charge, and exposed the truth in the face of their blatant lies.  So Project Veritas had to go; they have been banned from Twitter.
    But the Red Guards still aren’t satisfied.  They will not rest until there is not a single human being remaining in all of American media who questions any of their platitudes.  “In the name of diversity, we must have uniformity!??!”  At present, we have all the impediments to their achieving this goal of uniformity, including centuries of tradition, the First Amendment to the Constitution, and the fact this once was a free country.  They intend to destroy all of this.  They justify doing this by their blatant outright lie, “It’s not a fascist crackdown on free speech by ruthless and power-mad billionaires.  It’s just harm reduction, like methadone or Nicorette.  It’s a way to get better.” 
    ..when they come after you to shut down your free speech, freedom to worship, freedom to travel, freedom to buy or sell without their Certificate Of Vaccination ID [the mark of the beast], they will talk, as above, like “social workers,”…guaranteed.

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:
    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.”
