Dear brothers and sisters in Christ…
I want to share with you a personal testimony of the Power of the Holy Spirit I recently experienced, as He sweeps over you, and anoints you.
Whenever a born-again child of God places their entire life an the altar of sacrifice… wholly surrendered unto God, wholly given for the blessings and salvation of souls… and walks in the Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit the path that our Blessed Christ Personally walked and dedicated for us…a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of His flesh…the path of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self…you can be sure you will become a target of Satan’s fury! All Hell will break loose against you!
During the month of July, 2020, the Sovereign Lord allowed Hell’s onslaught to take place in my life. I was tormented and terrorized with overwhelming evil thoughts, images, and imaginations in my heart over continual stretches of time, day and night…beyond anything I had ever experienced before! It became clear that Satan’s intent was to destroy me!
I had known for some time in my mind, and written about, that in a child of God’s physical life, maturity is growth from the utter dependence of a baby to the complete independence and self-reliance of an adult. In a believer’s spiritual life, however, maturity is growth from independence and self-reliance to utter dependency upon God. He is most spiritually mature who lives a life of unreserved child-like dependence upon God. Just as a baby opens its mouth and cries whenever it has physical needs, so I open my mouth and cry whenever I have spiritual needs. Just as a baby is utterly and hopelessly helpless to satisfy its physical needs…and will surely physically die if no one hears its cry and comes to satisfy its needs…just so am I utterly and hopelessly helpless to satisfy my spiritual needs…and will surely spiritually die if God my Father does not hear my cry and come to satisfy my spiritual needs.
It is one thing to know this truth in your mind, but it is quite another to know this experientially! My Father allowed me to experience in my soul the horror of realizing that unless He Personally came to rescue me…I was going to surely spiritually die! [Think of Sampson as a poster-child of spiritual death.] There was absolutely no question, no hope, not the remotest possibility of my being able to do anything about it by my own efforts or in my own strength! And I was frightened and scared…continually crying out for my Father like a little child! I was experiencing something of the emotional agony that Jesus Himself experienced in the Garden that night when He began to be deeply distressed and troubled at the prospect of the cross. The Greek verbs used in the Biblical text described an extremely acute emotion, a compound of bewilderment, fear, uncertainty and anxiety, nowhere else portrayed in such vivid terms as here: shuddering awe; deep distress; overpowering mental distress; full of terror and distress; surprised and terrified; fright and anguish.
I experienced in the depths of my soul a shuddering awe, an unimaginable and frightening horror, an abject terror, a hopeless helplessness, a stunning terror; I was horror-stricken, paralyzed with overwhelming fear, frightened unto death of the hopeless helplessness of any prospect of my escape…the realization that I will surely die. There was no hope, no chance, no possibility that I could resist the devil, that he would flee from me. There was no hope, no chance, no possibility that I could put on the full armor of God and stand. Whatever those verses mean…I knew in the depths of my soul, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that at that moment it was humanly impossible…and I was frightened to death. The experiential reality of what it means…what it feels like…to be hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless swept over me with unimaginable, inexpressible horror. Blessed Jesus…I experienced in the depths of my being something of what you experienced in the Garden that night, that caused Your sweat to be colored with droplets of blood.
In the Garden that night, Christ My Son was filled with terror and shuddering awe, “My soul is crushed with anguish and dread to the point of death.” He asked, “Abba, Father, everything is possible for You. If it is possible, within the framework of Your plans, Your purposes, Your will, may this cup of suffering be taken from Me.” [Father God…Mark 14:34-36]
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sin-enslaved human nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I end up doing is not the good deeds I want to do; no, the evil deeds I do not want to do…this I keep on doing! Now if I so often end up doing what I do not want to do, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is the enslaving power of sin living in my human nature that asserts itself and does it. So I find this law at work in me: when I want to do what is right and good, evil is right there with me subjecting me to its insistent demands. For in my inner being I delight in God’s Law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law embraced by my regenerated mind and making me a prisoner of the indwelling principle of sin at work within the members of my body.
So then, to sum up this whole matter, such is the unchanging conflict of these two principles within me as a child of God: I myself in my regenerated mind am a willing bondslave to God’s Law, but, in the sin-enslaved human nature that still remains a part of me, a wretched slave to the rule and reign of the indwelling principle of sin. What a wretched man I am! Who, then, shall deliver me out of bondage to this indwelling law of sin and into moral freedom, where my body shall no longer serve as the seat of this shameful death? Thanks be to God…He has delivered me and set me free through my living union of oneness with Christ Jesus my Lord! [Rom 7:18-25] Hallelujah!
It was Thursday evening, July 23, 2020, when the Spirit of God led our weekly Home Bible Group Meeting into a discussion on these verses, and began to illuminate our minds to understand the rich eternal treasures that are above, in the Heavenly realms. We talked about…
- It wasn’t this way in the very beginning, Abba Father, when You first created Mankind in the person of Adam, to be the father of the human race. He had the capability and capacity to bring great glory to Your name…far greater glory than all else in the Created universe…by using his free will to freely choose to be what You created him to be, rather than to be something other than what You created him to be. And what did You create him to be… what did You create Mankind to be? A being that would freely choose to do Your will rather than its own will…a being that would live in absolute obedience to Your will, by choice. And so Adam was given the opportunity to bring great glory to Your name through the exercise of his free will to freely choose to obey Your one only command…Your one and only restriction placed on his life to test his obedience. Unfortunately, he chose to exercise the free will You had given him to do what seemed best to him…to do what he wanted…rather than to obey Your will through obedience to Your one command clearly outlined to him. As a result, the pure and holy human nature he was created with became tainted by sin, and would forevermore be enslaved by sin…human nature now a prisoner held captive by sin. Through Adam, all of Mankind has now inherited a sin-enslaved human nature…and I have no power whatsoever of my own to set myself free. I am hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do so.
- My human nature is enslaved by sin. I have a sin-enslaved human nature that is a prisoner of sin, held captive by sin, in bondage to sin, enslaved by sin…and has no power whatsoever to free itself from sin. Nor does it even want to! I am hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to free myself from sin. I have no power to stand against temptations and sins in the power of my sin-enslaved human nature; it loves sin and desires to satisfy its own self-life and self-interests. Why, then, would I ever think that in reliance upon my human capabilities and capacities, by my own efforts and strength, I can free myself from sin? The overriding characteristic of my sin-enslaved human nature is that it is enslaved by sin. If I had the power to free myself, then it would not be a sin-enslaved human nature in the first place, and I would not be a prisoner. I could free myself and walk away from sin. But that is obviously not the case; my sin-enslaved human nature has no power to do so. It has no power to free itself from sin, and no desire to do so. For my sin-enslaved human nature has a strong desire to suppress the Holy Spirit Who dwells in me as a born-again child of God, and the Spirit constantly has a strong desire to suppress my sin-enslaved human nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that I am hindered by my sin-enslaved human nature from freely doing what I desire to do in obedience to God. [Gal 5:17]
- Life in the power of the flesh is characterized by trying rather than by trusting. It is a life requiring my continual striving and struggling; all of my efforts, redoubled efforts, and strength; all my commitments and resolutions; all my pledges and promises. Even then…the absolute weakness of my sin-enslaved human nature guarantees I will utterly fail, because by attempting to do so I will have blocked the Holy Spirit and His Power from working through me, with me, in me.
Beloved child…a life of trying in the power of your flesh ignores My Eternal provision for your living a holy and righteous life: the gift of My Holy Spirit given to dwell in you, and His eternal Power made available to you. It disregards My command to keep on being continually filled with My Holy Spirit, giving Him free reign over the conduct of your everyday life. Even just trying by your own efforts and in your own strength to live a holy and righteous life is in itself presumptuous..it presumes that you are fully capable of doing so, and do not need Me. It presumes that you can be well-pleasing in My sight in the power of your sin-enslaved human nature. It is an assertion of your self-reliance and self-sufficiency, and that you have no need for dependence upon My Holy Spirit. It is not well-pleasing to Me; it is a life of utter failure and spiritual bankruptcy! The truth of the matter is…apart from Me you can do nothing that is good, or pleasing, or acceptable to God! You can only live your life either in the Power of the Spirit or in the power of the flesh. You cannot live in both at the same time; it is either one or the other. You cannot serve 2 masters. So I say, live out each day in accordance with your new life in the Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to His cross and crucified them there. Since you are now living by the Spirit, follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of your life. Always remember: Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD Almighty. [Gal 5:16, 24-25; Zech 4:6]
As our discussion continued along that evening under the guidance of the Holy Spirit’s leading, we were discussing Scriptures concerning how the Lord Jesus sets a believer free from the bondage of sin…that all human beings by nature have a sin-enslaved human nature…and can only be set free by Christ through His atonement for sin by virtue of His death on a cross on our behalf. When I am born again, it is as literal and real a birth as was my physical birth…and I become a new creation…a new person, whereby my former moral and spiritual condition has passed away, and all things have become new. I no longer live my life out of my sin-enslaved human nature, but now live my new life out of the divine nature of God’s Holy Spirit dwelling within me by virtue of being born again. That is why only those born-again can know, and have, and experience, the indwelling Holy Spirit.
During our discussion, the Holy Spirit swept over one of our group members and so opened up his mind and heart to this truth…in a depth he had never seen before…that he was literally, visibly, filled with a fullness of joy! He could hardly contain himself! He was wired in the Spirit, and began to testify with power about what God had done, and was continually doing, in his life! He testified that when he is tormented and terrorized with overwhelming evil thoughts, images, and imaginations in his heart [and he knew nothing about what I was going through], his God and Father reaches down and plucks His child out of Satan’s grasp and into safety, declaring with determined purpose, No! You can’t have My child; he belongs to Me! He was anointed…and continued to testify about the utter weakness of his flesh and how helpless he was to resist by his own efforts and strength, and that if he tried to do so it would only guarantee his failure! He testified how the Power of the Holy Spirit in his life was the source of his strength, and apart from Him he could do nothing! He just went on and on, carried away in the Spirit into the heavenly realms for the remainder of our meeting, continually praising God, proclaiming the Word of God with boldness and power! I just sat there and listened, thanking God for how He was touching this brother whom He was calling, and using, as the “pastor of Walmart!” And it brought to his mind a song that had so touched him…a powerful song with a powerful message…so he pulled it up on his phone and played it for us. The link is below, if you want to hear it. It is not my particular choice in Christian music…but I put myself in his place, and could embrace its powerful message as we all listened to it! The song is by CASTING CROWNS, entitled SET ME FREE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2HwtWLokSc
I myself was so blessed by the manifest Presence of the Holy Spirit in our meeting that evening that I never realized that God had quietly touched and anointed me as well with the “anointing of promise” that I had been desperately crying out to Him for. Over the past several weeks [actually, for a number of years…but now with an intense desperation] I had been pleading with Him for this anointing that I had been granted once before, in the Fall 1984 when I was just a 3 year old child of God, that I had lost because I had carelessly let it slip away, not appreciating in my spiritual babyhood how precious this treasure really was. I was pleading with my Father…that I could not live without it…that I could not serve as His messenger, His ministering spirit, His watchman with boldness, freedom, and confidence, with spiritual power and authority, unless I had this anointing of promise. I wasn’t asking for an anointing of privilege; that is God’s prerogative. No; I was asking for the anointing that was promised…that I had been granted once before. I knew what it was; and I knew I no longer had it. The anointing of promise is the full blessing of Pentecost…and it is only granted to those who hunger and thirst for it; whose heart is inflamed with yearning for it…to those who are wholly surrendered unto God, wholly given for the blessing and salvation of souls…to those who by faith abide in the Holy of Holies in the unclouded Presence of the Father. Blessed Jesus, You assured me: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness…a continual and unceasing purity, holiness, and righteousness of my own in living out my everyday life in my hidden life in my heart, and in both my unseen and visible physical life as well. You assured me that I will be filled…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! [Mt 5:6] That is the anointing of promise! And even more beyond that… Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. [Mt 5:8]
On that evening God my Father heard the desperate cry of my heart, and quietly, silently, granted me the anointing of promise. From that evening forward, the evil thoughts, images, and imaginations in my heart still came a number of times expecting to torment and terrorize me as they had always done…but now they had absolutely no power at all, were of none effect, and weren’t even the least bother. The anointing is not just a greater power than what had been coming to torment and terrorize me; no, the anointing completely neutralizes their power so that they are meaningless and have no affect whatsoever. The anointing of promise is the greatest gift granted by God after having granted the preeminent Gifts of His Divine Son Jesus and His Holy Spirit. No child of God should ever be satisfied without having it; but as you can see from this testimony, there is a cost to the anointing. Child of God…are you willing to pay the price?
I don’t know whether in the depths of your heart you really believe there is a God in Heaven or not, but this I do know…Abba Father…Your children are continually being led by Your indwelling Holy Spirit. And You have so lovingly assured me, Your child, that I needn’t be like a cowering, fearful slave in Your Presence. Your Holy Spirit, God’s eternal gift, doesn’t make cowards out of us. He endues me with power and love and a sound mind…that I should freely abide with You as Your very Own child, adopted by birth into the bosom of Your Family, crying out unashamedly without reservation to You, “Abba, Father!” For Your Holy Spirit speaks to me deep in my heart, reassuring me that indeed I really am Your child! [Rom 8:14-17; 2 Tim 1:7]
I proclaim to you Christ Jesus…the One Who existed from the beginning, from Eternity Past, Whom I have heard with the ears of my own inner being, and have seen with my own spiritual eyes. I have gazed upon Him and have spiritually touched Him with my own hands. He is the Word of Life. His Life is continually being revealed to me; I have seen it and testify to it, and I proclaim to you that He is the One Who is Eternal Life. He always existed with the Father, and is now continually being manifested afresh and anew to me. I proclaim to you what I have personally seen and heard in the depths of my soul, so that you also may enjoy this same fellowship together with us. The fellowship I continually enjoy is with the Father and with His Son, Christ Jesus. I am writing these things so that you also may fully share together with me in this fullness of joy! [1 John 1:1-4]. It is our birth-right as a child of the Most High God!
Blessed Holy Spirit, sweep over my soul:
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
I love my Country; I grew up here, and worked here, and enjoyed the freedoms we were given here. Even so…this Country is no longer the Country I grew up in. It has become something else…something totally different, something strange and foreign to me.
Here is a current-day snapshot of life in the FSSA…the Fascist Socialist States of America. We are a Nation no longer under the rule and Authority of God, and as a result so horribly transformed from what our Founding Fathers envisioned and birthed. Presented below is what it looks like…utter chaos…when God has determined by His Own Divine Decree to destroy a Nation, as He has America.
We need to be fully aware of what is taking place in our Nation in order to know how to be prepared as ministers of the Lord during these End Times. Here is what a Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship looks like as it continues to unilaterally shut down, trample over, and shred our every constitutional right that stands in its way.
Here are a few thoughts as to what to expect from this point forward:
- Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada: This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change. This is our chance, says Justin Trudeau. Not our chance to save you from a virus with a 99% survival rate. This is our chance to impose unprecedented social controls on the population in order to bypass democracy and change everything to conform with their weird academic theories that have never been tested in the real world and, by the way, don’t actually make sense.
- Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum: We need to create a healthier, more equitable and more prosperous future. Fairer outcomes by coordination in tax regulatory, trade, and fiscal policy. It all may include changes to wealth taxes; the withdrawal of fossil fuel subsidies; and new rules governing influential intellectual property, trade, and competition; and transitioning from fossil fuels to green energy. Welcome to the Great Reset: a one world government, with a one world financial system.
- Ron Paul: World Economic Forum (WEF) Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab has proposed using the overreaction to coronavirus to launch a worldwide “Great Reset.” This Great Reset is about expanding government power and suppressing liberty worldwide. Schwab envisions an authoritarian system where big business acts as a partner with government. Big business would exercise its government-granted monopoly powers to maximize value for “stakeholders,” instead of shareholders. Stakeholders include the government, international organizations, the business itself, and “civil society.”
Of course, government bureaucrats and politicians, together with powerful special interests, will decide who are, and are not, stakeholders, what is in stakeholders’ interest, and what steps corporations must take to maximize stakeholder value. People’s own wishes are not the priority. The Great Reset will dramatically expand the surveillance state via real-time tracking. It will also mandate that people receive digital certificates in order to travel and even technology implanted in their bodies to monitor them.
Included in Schwab’s proposal for surveillance is his idea to use brain scans and nanotechnology to predict, and if necessary, prevent, individuals’ future behavior. This means that anyone whose brain is “scanned” could have his Second Amendment and other rights violated because a government bureaucrat determines the individual is going to commit a crime.
The system of tracking and monitoring could be used to silence those expressing “dangerous” political views, such as that the Great Reset violates our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The Great Reset involves a huge expansion of the welfare state via a universal basic income program. This can help ensure compliance with the Great Reset’s authoritarian measures.
It will also be very expensive. The resulting increase in government debt will not be seen as a problem by people who believe in modern monetary theory. This is the latest version of the fairy tale that deficits don’t matter as long as the Federal Reserve monetizes the debt.
The Great Reset ultimately will fail for the same reason all other attempts by government to control the market fail. As Ludwig von Mises showed, government interference in the marketplace distorts the price system. Prices are how information about the value of goods and services related to other goods and services is conveyed to market actors. Government interference in the marketplace disturbs the signals sent by prices, leading to an oversupply of certain goods and services and an undersupply of others.
The lockdowns show the dangers of government control over the economy and our personal lives. Lockdowns have increased unemployment, caused many small businesses to close, and led to more substance abuse, domestic violence, and suicide. We are told the lockdowns are ordered because of a virus that poses no great danger to a very large percentage of the American public. Yet, instead of adopting a different approach, politicians are doubling down on the failed policies of masks and lockdowns. Meanwhile, big tech companies, which are already often acting as partners of government, silence anyone who questions the official line regarding the threat of coronavirus or the effectiveness of lockdowns, masks, and vaccines. The disastrous response to COVID-19 is just the latest example of how those who give up liberty for safety or health will end up unfree, unsafe, and unhealthy.
Instead of a Great Reset of authoritarianism, we need a great rebirth of liberty!

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:
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 returns. Even now as I write, Joe Biden has introduced legislation that now legalizes these illegal aliens. Mark my words, folks. Republicans will NEVER again win another National election. January 7, 2021, marks that infamous day when our once great Constitutional Republic officially became a Totalitarian Dictatorship.
- Video clip: Tucker Carlson: 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
Perhaps God is just 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.
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.
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.
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.”
