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, strange and foreign to me.  Here is a current-day snapshot of life in the FSSA…the Fascist Socialist States of America:

Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:

  • Revelation 13:16-20
    He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.  He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the markThe mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
    This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us.  If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations.His number is 666.
    Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.  First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.  The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.  And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.  Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration.  The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit.  And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!
  • Revelation 14:9-12
    A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!  He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb!  And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever!  There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!”  This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
  • Revelation 14:17-20
    Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle.  Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple, “Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.”  The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath.  They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo…Armageddon.  The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed… and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (160 miles)!  Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Eartha more detailed account of which is now to follow.     

PERSONAL HOLINESS

Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.  Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. [2 Cor 7:1; Heb 12:14; Mt 5:8]

Confession of sin and repentance:

Abba Father…I’ve come before Your Throne of Grace to acknowledge and confess the sins I have committed since I last came before You.  Let Your Holy Spirit bring to mind how I have sinned against You in my visible physical life…the wrong things I have done and the words I have spoken or written that others have seen and/or heard.

Enable me to bring to mind how I have sinned against You in my unseen physical life…the wrong things I have done and the words I have spoken that no one else was present to see or hear…especially while driving alone in my car, on the phone in conversation, at home alone, on the Internet, or anywhere or doing anything where no one else was present to witness it. You see the secret, most hidden things I do.  If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You. [Ps 139:11-12]

And especially, enable me to bring to mind how I have sinned against You in my hidden life in my heart…in my mind, my thoughts…the wrong things I have done and said in my imagination that no one else will ever know about but You.  You know the deepest, most secret thoughts of a person’s heart…and I am just as guilty of committing these sins within my heart as if I had actually and physically carried them out: Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. [Matt 5:28]

I also acknowledge and confess all my sins that have not come to mind at the moment, on the basis that if they were to come to mind, there would be nothing there I know of to be sin but would like to be doing, would want to keep on doing it, and would refuse to give it up for You.  Father…I know my heart is deceitful, and desperately wicked above all things; who, really, can know it…only You.  And so if there is anything that my heart has hidden from me…let Your Holy Spirit convict me deeply of these sins, and make me painfully and consciously aware of them, so I can turn to You in repentance and ask for Your enabling grace to forsake these sins.

And I acknowledge and confess the sins of unrighteousness in the spiritual realm I have committed against You: my sins of unbelief resulting from a lack of faith…whereby I can not, or will not, trust in You with an unwavering child-like trust in all things; my sins of disobedience resulting from self-willwhereby I do not, or refuse to, obey Your will or accept Your will with an unquestioning child-like obedience; my sins of self-sufficiency resulting from self-reliance…whereby I believe in my heart that I am able to live my life in a manner that is well-pleasing to You through reliance upon the powers of my sin-enslaved human nature, refusing to acknowledge my absolute need to depend upon You with an unreserved child-like dependence in everything.

Father, I acknowledge and confess my sins to You, and I am deeply sorry for them…because whenever I sin against You, it thwarts the deepest desire of my heart to be holy as You are Holy, and to be perfect as You are perfect…for You have told Your children, “As the One Who called you is Holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living.  For it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy;'” and, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” [1 Peter 1:15-16; Matt 5:48]  In the power of Your enabling grace, I turn from my sins in repentance; in my heart, I turn from them.  Father, forgive me; have mercy on me, a sinner.

Abba Father…thank You for Your promise, thank You for Your assurance, that whenever I acknowledge and confess my sins to You, You are faithful and just to forgive my sins.  You are faithful in that You never fail to do so, and just to do so by virtue of the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus, poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary for the forgiveness of my sins.  And You are faithful and just to cleanse me of all unrighteousness…You have forgiven me of all I have ever done, and have blotted out the entire record of transgressions proven against me…erased the entire record of my sins. You removed my sins from me as far as the East is from the West, and have cast my sins into the depths of the sea, never to remember them against me again.  You have expunged all of my sins from the record; there is nothing written against my name in Your Book, just as if I had never sinned!  And You have conferred upon me the judicial status of eternal righteousness as an accomplished and finished fact.  Sin can never again stain my soul and separate me from God, because the Blood of Christ Your Son envelopes my soul, and sin cannot penetrate it.

And thank You, Father, for washing my robes anew in the Blood of the Lamb…for continually washing my garments as they become soiled with sin and I bring them before You in confession and repentance, making them clean again…dazzling and white.  Thank You for washing my feet with pure water…for washing the dust of sin off my feet, enabling me to stand before You, to abide here with You in the Holy Of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, having been washed in the Blood of the Lamb, dressed in the white robes of His Righteousness, pure and holy now in Your sight, without spot or wrinkle or blemish.  And thank You for giving me fine, radiant linen to wear…dazzling and white…which are the righteous acts that Your Holy Spirit has wrought in me as I have given Him free reign to do so…that my light would so shine before the souls of men that they would see the good deeds, righteous acts, and moral excellence wrought in me by Your Holy Spirit, and give glory to You, Father, in Heaven.

Thank You, Father, that at this moment in time, after all my years of sins and failure, mistakes and imperfections, I stand before You just as pure and innocent and helpless in Your sight as I was on the day I was born.  The most intense desire of my heart going forward is to be pure, holy, and righteous in living out my every day life…in living out my visible physical life, my unseen physical life, my life in the spiritual realm, and especially my hidden life in my heart…in my mind, my thoughts, my imagination.

Prayer for purity and holiness:

Blessed Jesus…You assured me, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled” [Mt 5:6]  Blessed, You said, are those who, in living out their everyday life, hunger and thirst for a purity, holiness, and righteousness of their own that comes from obedience to the Law.  You assured me that my longing will be completely satisfied, and I will be filled up to the measure of all the fullness of God…to the richest measure of Your unclouded Presence, a soul wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!  I delight myself in You, Lord…and You promised to grant me the desires and secret petitions of my heart that are in agreement with Your will.  You promised that if only I would just commit my way to You and trust in You, most assuredly You will do this: You will make my righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of my cause like the noonday sun! [Psalm 37:4-6]  Hallelujah!  

Abba Father…create in me a pure heart.  I hunger and thirst for a pure heart; my heart is inflamed with yearning…my heart aches and pines away with yearning…to have a purity, holiness, and righteousness of my own that comes from obedience to the Law.  I hunger and thirst to be filled with Your holiness and righteousness in my everyday manner of living. The deepest, most intense longing of my heart is to be holy as You are holy; to be perfect as You are perfect.  I insist upon it…not in order to gain anything, but because I already have everything.  I am Your child, and You are my Father and my God.  I already have the judicial status of eternal righteousness before You…by virtue of the Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus, poured out on my behalf for the forgiveness of my sins.  I am already pure and holy in Your sight, without spot or wrinkle or blemish, having been dressed in the white robes of His Own Righteousness.  I already have Your acceptance; I already have Your approval; I already have Your affirmation; I already have Your affectionI already have everything by virtue of having been born into Your Family…born a second time; born again.  I am Your child by birth and by Blood, on that momentous day when Your Divine seed, planted in my heart, was fertilized by the consent of my will in making a solemn vow before You to be the bride of Christ, and an entirely new life was thereby conceived.  I am an entirely new creation…a new being…and I bear the characteristics of God my Father.  Abba Father…I have Your spiritual DNA!  I am no longer the person I used to be…the old, former things have passed away, and all things from that point forward have become new. 
Father, let Your Holy Spirit continually work this sanctification within me.  It is His work, not mine, and I acknowledge that I am hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do so through reliance upon my human capabilities and capacities, by my own efforts and strength.  Your Holy Spirit alone is the One Who works in me both to will and to do.

Spiritual DNA:

No one conceived of God and born into God’s Family deliberately, knowingly, and habitually practices sin, for Your nature, Father, abides within me.  Your principle of life, the Divine sperm, remains permanently within me; I cannot practice sinning, because I am born into new life…I am a born again child of God. [John 3:9]  I know beyond the shadow of any doubt that everyone born into God’s Family is thereby a regenerated individual and does not make a practice of committing sin.  How could I?  God’s seed is deep within me, making me who I am.  It’s not in the nature of the God-begotten to practice and parade sin.  The Son of God carefully watches over and protects me [Christ’s indwelling Divine Presence preserves me against the evil one], and the Devil cannot lay hold of me. [1 John 5:16]

By this it is made clear who takes their nature from God and are His children, and who takes their nature from the devil and are his children: those who do not practice righteousness [who do not conform to God’s will in purpose, thought, and action] are not children of God; neither is anyone who does not love his brother (his fellow believer in Christ). [1 John 3:9-10]  This does not imply, nor claim, my sinless perfection…but represents my heart attitude as a child of God that, so far as I know, I have no unconfessed sin in my life; there is nothing between myself and my Lord Jesus…a child who is yielded habitually to the Holy Spirit and living in close fellowship with my Lord.  

Faithful and true believer:

Fiction has painted the picture of a maiden whose lover left her for a voyage to the Holy Land, promising on his return to make her his beloved bride.  Many told her that she would never see him again.  But she believed his word, and evening by evening she went down to the lonely shore, and kindled there a beacon-light in sight of the roaring waves, to hail and welcome the returning ship which was to bring again her betrothed.  And by that watchfire she took her stand each night, praying to the winds to hasten on the sluggish sails, that he who was everything to her might come. 
Even so that blessed Lord, Who has loved me unto death, has gone away to the mysterious Holy Land of Heaven, promising on His return to make me His happy and eternal bride. Some say that He has gone forever, and that here we shall never see Him more.  But His last Word was, “Yea, I come quickly.”  And on the dark and misty beach sloping out into the eternal sea, each true believer stands by the love-lit fire, looking, and waiting, and praying and hoping for the fulfillment of His Word, in nothing gladder than in His pledge and promise, and calling ever from the soul of sacred love, “COME, LORD JESUS; COME QUICKLY.”  And one of these nights, while the world is busy with its gay frivolities, and laughing at the maiden on the shore, a form shall rise over the surging waves, as once on Galilee, to vindicate forever all this watching and devotion, and bring to the faithful and constant heart a joy, and glory, and triumph which never more shall end! 
It is therefore clear to me that the washing of one’s robes and the keeping of one’s garments relates to this very attitude and habit of looking for the coming of Christ, and keeping in constant expectation and readiness for it as an impending event.  And the blessedness of access to and power over the Tree of Life, and of entrance by the gates of pearl into the Golden City, is here made to depend on this very washing of our robes and keeping of our garments.  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.”

Watch! Tis your Lord’s command; and while we speak, He’s near.  Mark the first signal of His Hand, and ready all appear.  O happy servant he, in such a pasture found!  He shall his Lord with rapture see, and be with honor crowned!
[Joseph Seiss]

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. 
    https://www.foxnews.com/media/tucker-carlson-lying-biden-infrastructure-bill 
  • 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:
    https://www.heritage.org/gender/heritage-explains/the-equality-act

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.”
