Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Brace yourself…What the Spirit of God has been warning about for the past many number of months is continuing to unfold at warp speed. Brethren…you can feel in the Spirit where all this is going! We are about to discover what it’s like to live in a nation where you could be banned from shopping at a grocery store or getting gasoline at a service station because you haven’t been vaccinated. On Sunday the director of the National Institutes of Health director told CNN he supported an effort to require grocery story customers to provide evidence they have been vaccinated.
The federal government will eventually force businesses to ban any customers who do not have a covid vaccination ID card. We are one step closer to that happening. It’s a strong-arm tactic one would expect in some sort of authoritarian regime run by state police. Either get the vaccine or the government will starve your family. This is Joe Biden’s Marxist America. EXACTLY like Hitler’s Fascist Germany; EXACTLY like Mao’s communist China; EXACTLY like Russia and North Korea.
- News article: Todd Starnes: I warned you that one day Americans would be told, “show me your papers.” That day is now here. BREAKING: NYC to Require Citizens to Show Vaccine Papers.
New Yorkers will now have to show their vaccination papers if they want to eat at a restaurant or attend a Broadway show. “If you want to participate in society fully, you’ve got to get vaccinated,” Mayor Bill de Blasio added. “It’s time for people to see vaccination as necessary to living a good and full and healthy life,” de Blasio said during his daily press briefing. This is crucial, because we know that this will “encourage” a lot more vaccination.” The pro-Communist mayor says it’s time for people to see vaccination as necessary way of life in “free” America. EXACTLY like Hitler’s Fascist Germany; EXACTLY like Mao’s communist China; EXACTLY like Russia and North Korea.
The vaccine order applies to all entertainment, fitness and dining venues. “It will require vaccination for workers and customers in indoor dining, in indoor fitness facilities, indoor entertainment facilities. The only way to patronize these businesses indoors is if you’re vaccinated.”
Murray Burnett wrote Casablanca, a Broadway play that eventually became an Academy Award winning movie. He was inspired by a European vacation he took in 1938. He saw first-hand the rise of Hitler’s fascist regime. The phrase, “show me your papers” was actually based on his real-life encounters with Nazi officials. One can only imagine Mr. Burnett’s horror knowing that in modern-day America citizens will have to show their papers just to watch a Broadway show.
Freedom’s light is flickering, my friends. https://www.toddstarnes.com/values/breaking-nyc-to-require-citizens-to-show-vaccine-papers/?fbclid=IwAR3LI3w-8YT-rkWpm1huhY7jhoA8nghnFXkXoEubt356HT7Tje537E7iSQk
- Video clip: Tucker Carlson: Science is a seeking of the truth, not a political directive. The Anglosphere is collectively committing suicide.
On Friday morning, the Washington Post ran this headline: “Vaccinated people made up three-quarters of those infected in a massive Massachusetts COVID-19 outbreak, pivotal CDC study finds.” The New York Times ran a similar piece …again, based on numbers from the CDC.
In a desperate attempt to suppress the emerging truth, Walensky herself, the CDC Director, shouted, The vaccine works! In fact, it works so well, you may soon be forced to take it: Breaking News article: CDC director tells Bret Baier government ‘looking into’ potential National COVID-19 vaccine mandate. “Are you for mandating a vaccine Nationwide on a federal level?” Baier of Fox News asked. Walensky replied, “That’s something that I think the Administration is looking into. It’s something that I think we are looking to see approval of from the vaccine.”
So we’re looking into a federal vaccine mandate. Then on Sunday, the head of the N.I.H., the highly-political Francis Collins, explained that those “mandates by private institutions” might come as “requests” presented to their employees. Who is this old fool? Employers “asking” their employees to get vaccinated? They’re not asking them, they’re requiring them as a condition of employment…they’re forcing them. “But that’s not a mandate, they pretend: Just get vaccinated, or you can’t live in the United States anymore.”
But, Francis Collins at the same time wants you to know that even if you have been vaccinated, you can’t go back to your normal life. The vaccine is “perfect”…but you still have to wear a mask and can’t go outside. Collins did not explain how unvaccinated people could possibly pose a threat to vaccinated people, because remember that the vaccines work so well, we have to mandate them for public health reasons. But at the same time people who have been vaccinated are threatened by those who don’t. Are you following this? Does it make any sense to you at all? Do you need a medical degree to know it’s complete nonsense? No, you don’t!
So where does this lead? What do civil rights mean when they’re not enforced across the board…when your rights are given to you based on who you vote for, they’re not civil rights are they? They’re privileges. And that’s exactly what’s happening and in fact, it’s happening around the world. Rights that we took for granted, that we believed we were born with in the English-speaking world, have disappeared. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-science-truth-political News article: Tucker Carlson: Jeffrey Anderson: When you compare covid to the 1918 Spanish Flu…an American under 40 years of age had more than 100 times the chance of dying of the Spanish Flu than of covid -19. The Spanish flu was more than 100 times as deadly than covid for Americans under 40. Masks are not that effective, and are actually doing a great deal of harm.
News article: Hannity: We deserve answers on breakthrough COVID cases. At least 125,000 fully vaccinated Americans have tested positive for covid…and that is only what has been reported.
Brace yourself…because I have warned many times that If what is presented in this video clip https://drcharlieward.com/urgent-stop-vaccinations-now/ is true, we are going to see MANY, MANY, MANY, vaccinated people suddenly coming down with this coronavirus….AND WE ARE! Well, brethren…what has been foretold in warning in this video clip is even now coming to pass! If you take this vaccine, you will have irreversibly destroyed your natural immune system against the covid virus; you will have no immunity whatsoever against ANY and EVERY Covid variant…like the Delta variant. Worse yet…your body will become a “gain of function laboratory” for the virus, and it will continually mutate through you and everyone who has been vaccinated into ever more deadly mutations…to the point where there will be no stopping this virus.
We are now seeing ever increasing and more alarming news articles every day about vaccinated people coming down with coronavirus. You can be sure there will really be chaos…back to masks, lock-downs, social distancing…IT’S EVEN NOW BEING MANDATED! And who knows what else. You can be sure we will see off-the-charts pressures, mandates, and covid ID requirements…IT’S EVEN NOW BEING MANDATED! You won’t be able to buy, sell, travel, work, or go to school [which we already have] without it…IT’S EVEN NOW BEING MANDATED!
The Biden Administration has been pushing the FDA to “approve” these experimental biological agents they misrepresent as a “vaccine”…and the FDA will do this even though there will be no medical basis for the approval, just so they can then mandate everyone must be vaccinated and show proof of vaccination.
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. 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. 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]
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. 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.
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! 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.
- News article: Thousands of NC Healthcare Workers Protest Mandatory Vaccines. Thousands of healthcare workers marched in Charlotte, North Carolina to protest mandatory vaccination orders at two major healthcare facilities. Staffers at Atrium and Novant have until the fall to get vaccinated. Otherwise, they will lose their jobs.
“At the end of the day, it’s all about choice,” nurse Cheryl Morneau told television station WBTV. “It’s a right. People died for our rights. It’s not right to take that freedom away from us, we are people too. We sacrificed on the frontlines for over a year. Why don’t we have the same rights as everyone else and as our patients do?”
“I’m not going to be forced to take an experimental vaccine that potentially could injure me or kill me. The chances of that are low. But if it happens, I will be responsible,” she told television station WSOC.
- News article: Walmart, Disney Join Growing List of Companies Requiring Proof of Vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines: Coming to a corporation near you.
From Walmart to Disney, more and more companies are mandating their employees get the COVID-19 vaccine. The mandates come as President Joe Biden announced a federal vaccine requirement: all federal employees and contractors are vaccinated or submit to regular testing.
“The great thing about America is that businesses are free to dictate their policies without fear of government intervention,” said nationally-syndicated talk show host Todd Starnes. “Likewise, consumers are free to shop at stores that do not pry into their private medical history.”
Here is a list of companies requiring employees to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated: Google; Facebook; Netflix; Walmart; Disney; Morgan Stanley; Sax Fifth Avenue; The Washington Post; Lyft; Uber; Twitter; Goldman Sachs.
- News article: Disney and Walmart announced Friday that they are implementing coronavirus vaccine mandates for some of their employees, as two of the largest U.S. companies became the latest corporate giants to embrace vaccination in the face of renewed pandemic restrictions.
Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer at almost 1.6 million workers, announced that all of its corporate staff members and regional managers would need to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 4. Though the mandate does not apply to store and warehouse staffers, who make up the bulk of the company’s workforce, Walmart is offering a $150 bonus as an incentive for those unvaccinated employees to get inoculated.
- News article: Cuccinelli: Biden’s Open Border ‘Intentional’ to Cull New Voters. The Biden administration is biting the bullet on bad press of illegal immigration in a “calculated decision” to expand their voter base in the U.S., according to former acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli on Newsmax. “They made a calculated decision at the beginning of this process that they were going to take all the incoming fire and the low poll numbers on immigration in an effort to get what they believe will be a bunch of illegal future voters that they believe will vote for them,” Cuccinelli told Monday’s “Cortes & Pellegrino.” That’s what this is about.
“This is not a mistake. This is not incompetence. This is intentional.” It is an outright, blatant, agenda to destroy America as a Constitutional Republic. We will never again have a Constitutional President. We will be a Marxist totalitarian dictatorship…until our Lord Jesus Christ returns.
- When God’s Judgments are upon the Earth: News article: Torrential Rainfall Floods Hundreds of Homes in Utah. After being in an “exceptional” drought, southwestern Utah was hit by flash flooding that overcame wastewater systems and flooded homes.
My beloved child…have you considered My servant Job? In his afflictions, his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!” But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we indeed welcome and accept only blessings from the hand of God and not also accept the misfortune and adversity He allows?” [Father God…Job 2:9-10]
** **, greatly beloved, this, then, is to be your attitude, your response…the same that was in Christ Jesus My Son…in any of the trials I allow or cause you to face: Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, YET WILL I REJOICE IN THE LORD…I WILL BE JOYFUL IN GOD MY SAVIOR. The Sovereign Lord is my strength. He makes my feet like hinds feet; He gives me strength and courage, enabling me to walk upon my high places…places of trouble and suffering and responsibility. [Hab 3:17-19]
This, then, is to be your attitude, My beloved child…the same that was in My Divine Son Jesus: For the joy set before Him…the joy of seeing sinners saved; the joy of reconciling sinners back to God; the joy of restoring your relationship with God that had been severed by sin; the joy of repairing that mirror of the Almighty that God intended for you to be, that had been shattered by sin…He willingly endured the cross with a joyful acceptance of His Father’s will…not just a determined resignation to do the Father’s will…heedless of its shame. [Heb 12:2]
Child of God! You are to embrace the same mind in you that was in Christ Jesus My Son, and joyfully exclaim from your innermost being: For the joy set before me…
- the joy of having patient and unswerving endurance formed in me, I patiently endure pressure and affliction and hardship, heedless of the suffering. [Rom 5:3]
- the joy of knowing that by many different kinds of testings, the genuineness of my faith may be found to result in praise, glory, and honor when Christ Your Son is revealed, I patiently endure suffering and sorrow, heedless of its pain. [1 Peter 1:6-7]
- the joy of knowing that I am achieving an eternal weight of glory, I patiently endure my light and momentary afflictions, heedless of their temporal hardship. [2 Cor 4:17-18]
- the joy of knowing that by whole-heartedly accepting His will for me and thereby becoming Christ’s disciple, I bear my cross daily, heedless of its distress. If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life for himself and his own interests will lose it, but whoever loses his self-life for My sake will save it. Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple. [Luke 9:23-24; 14:27]
- the joy of knowing that I am being prepared to share in Christ’s glory, I patiently endure my trying experiences of today, heedless of their sorrows. Now if we are children, then we are heirs…heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory. I consider that my present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in me. [Rom 8:17-18] Even more, when I love Him, trust Him, and rejoice in Him as I share in His sufferings now, I experience the glory here and now!
- the joy of knowing that suffering is part of God’s plans, purposes, and will for me, I patiently endure my afflictions, heedless of their anguish. So then, those who suffer because it is God’s will for them, should by their good actions trust themselves completely to their Creator, Who always keeps His promise. [1 Peter 4:19]
- the joy of knowing I will be enabled to walk in the Power of Christ’s resurrection life…the power to walk triumphantly through each and every day, as more than a conqueror and with overwhelming victory…I willingly fellowship in Christ’s sufferings, heedless of its burden. I want to know Jesus…ever more deeply, ever more intimately; I want to know Him in the power of His resurrection and in the fellowship of His sufferings, being continually conformed ever more deeply into the likeness of His death…death to sin and death to self…in order that I may thereby attain, more and more, to the Power of His resurrection life out from the dead…the power to walk triumphantly through each and every day, as more than a conqueror and with overwhelming victory. [Phil 3:10-11]
- the joy of knowing that God is the Sovereign All-Ruler over all things, and that nothing can touch my life apart from what He either Personally causes to happen, or specifically, consciously and deliberately allows to happen…and all to accomplish His Own good purpose…I patiently endure suffering as part of His plans, purposes, and will for me, heedless of its bitterness.
- the joy of knowing that all God does is necessarily the very best, very kindest, most loving thing that can possibly be, and that He is working out something good on my behalf…though I may not understand, yet, even so, I can trust My Father…I patiently endure my cross daily, heedless of its tribulation. And we know that God makes all things to work together for good to those who love Him, to those who are called according to His purpose. [Rom 8:28]
- the joy of knowing that the Sovereign Lord is my strength, I patiently endure my cross daily, heedless of its pressure and trial. The Sovereign Lord is my strength. He makes my feet like hinds feet; He gives me strength and courage, enabling me to walk upon my high places…places of trouble and suffering and responsibility. [Hab 3:18-19]
Abba Father…All glory to our Most Holy, Most High God! You safeguard me from falling away, and bring me into the unspeakable joy of Your glorious Presence without spot or wrinkle or blemish! Blessed be the One True Living God, my Savior through Christ Jesus Your Son! You are worthy of all glory and majesty, dominion and power…from eternity past and throughout the eternal unfolding ages! [Jude 24-25] Hallelujah!
Friends, brothers and sisters in Christ…
Is God literally Your Father, and are you literally His child…a child of the Most High God, born by means of a second birth into the Family of God? Jesus Himself made it perfectly clear, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. I Myself am the Resurrection and the Life. Anyone who believes in Me, though dying a physical death like everyone else, will rise again to an eternal life with Me in Heaven.” [John 14:6, 11:25-26]
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 one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless he is 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.”
Jesus keep me near the cross:
Now was to begin the processes of the actual taking possession of the Earth by our triumphant Redeemer, and the active participation of the now glorified saints in these forthcoming administrations: “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?” I was given a reed…like a judicial measuring rod, but also like a rod of chastisement…and was told by the Angel of Yahweh, “Go (as the representative of what each and every raptured and glorified saint now in Heaven is likewise commanded) into the Holy City Jerusalem and apply the rod in measure of the temple of God and the altar, and measure (“count” in the NIV) the worshipers there, purging them according to a new canon of regulations, laws, and boundaries. These People, the Jewish Nation, I once again acknowledge and claim as My possession, and they shall be set apart once again and marked off as My chosen people. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. But exclude the outer court… the court of the Gentiles. Do not measure it, because I have rejected it; it has been given over to the Gentiles. They will then be used as an instrument of God’s chastisement and purging of His chosen people, and will trample on the Holy City for 42 months, persecuting the measured worshipers there, desecrating the measured altar, and setting up an idol in the very marked place of Yahweh! And so shall it be that I will then give great and extraordinary power to My two witnesses, chosen from among the raptured and glorified saints now in Heaven…Enoch and Elijah, the Tishbite: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord.” And they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth befitting those terrible judgment times when they shall torment them that dwell upon the Earth…times of relentless calamity and unimaginable burdens of woe! These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands…they themselves both the oil and the source of light, the sole lightbearers to a world on the eve of that Day of Judgment in which the Earth will burn as an oven. They are the ones that had been translated to the presence of Jesus in the heavenly spaces without the intervention of death, and thereby are the anointed who stand before the Lord of the Earth in the present administration of His role and reign as the King of kings, and the Lord of lords. For it is ‘not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit’, says the Lord of Hosts, working through My two witnesses, that the final restitution of Jerusalem, its temple, its worship, and its system of ordinances will be accomplished, according as I have measured.” If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. These men have power to shut up the sky so that it will not rain during the entire 42 months time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the Earth with every kind of plague as often as they want. Thus were they given power to exercise judgment wrath against the great prevailing sin of idol worship, trust in false gods, and sacrilegious desecration of God’s temple, and to rebuke the blasphemies of unprincipled government, attesting by the nature of their inflictions the near coming of the Almighty to overwhelm forever these bloody tyrants and all their hosts. To smite the Earth with every plague, as often as they will, and to devour by fire from the breath of their mouth, is the entrusted prerogative of these two witnesses, giving proof to the doomed world by the very breath of their mouth that the devouring wrath of the Almighty is fully kindled, ready to break forth in fiery destruction to all who stand out against His messengers, and is even now ready to be turned into enginery of irresistible destruction to those who still persist in their impieties.
Now when they have finished their assigned period of testimony to the Truth of God and His purposes, resisting the gigantic blasphemies of the final Antichrist, giving to the infatuated world its last awful warning for repentance before the oncoming avalanche of destruction, and maintaining righteousness over and against apostasy and abounding wickedness, the Beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Their bodies will lie in the street of the great City, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial, in an extraordinary display of fiendishness and resentment so monstrous and unrelenting that it could not be placated even by their death. The inhabitants of the Earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had so tormented those who live on the Earth with the revolting and distressing judgment plagues they were licensed to inflict upon these worshipers of the Beast.
But after the three and a half days of death, a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, resurrected by the power of God, and overwhelming terror struck those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from Heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to Heaven in a cloud, in the same manner as the ascension of their Lord before them, while their enemies looked on in horror and dismay. At that very hour there was a severe earthquake, and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the stunned and deeply convicted survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of Heaven. The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming very soon!
The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in Heaven, a tumultuous outcry of adoring rapture ringing out from the inhabitants of glory, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign for ever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces in overwhelming praise and adoration as their soul-dissolving joy breaks like a sea of thankfulness against the Throne, and they worshiped God, saying: “We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty, the One Who is and Who was, and Who is now come, because You have taken Your great power and have now begun to reign, and your kingdom shall never end! The nations were angry; and Your wrath has come. The time has come for judging each and every one of the dead, and for rewarding Your servants the prophets and Your saints and those who reverence Your Holy Name, both small and great…and for destroying those who destroy the Earth.” As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Then God’s Temple in Heaven was opened, and within His Temple was seen the ark of His covenant, all the covenants of God with His people and all His solemn promises to them treasured away there, setting forth still further the glory of this momentous occasion. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm, heralding the impending breaking forth upon the wicked dwellers of the Earth terrible days of sore scourgings, and afflictions, and unutterable sorrows without end. [Revelation 11:1-19]
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 mark. The 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 (180 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 Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Here are several video clips…among many…that illustrate and bring into stark reality the ongoing destruction of the America we once knew. You really should take time to watch these video clips, so as to have a clear understanding where we are heading at warp speed as a Nation…as a preparation for ministry to a lost and dying world:
- Video clip: The global trace-and-track regime: The Biden administration’s vaccine passport scheme is just the teeny-tiny tip of a massive privacy invasion iceberg. This week, snoozing Americans finally woke up to the Biden vaccine passport plan and the New York vaccine verification program known as the “Excelsior Pass.” But these credentialing systems have been in the works for years among U.S. and global health agencies. The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a joint endeavor of the feds, Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce, the Mayo Clinic, electronic medical records giant Epic, Big Pharma CEOs and globalist nonprofit entities all coordinated by the military-industrial powerhouse MITRE corporation. These public-private partnerships between tech companies and Surveillance States obliterate any meaningful distinction between “free market” initiatives and government directives. Big tech, big health and big government all work seamlessly to ensure the success of the global trace-and-track regime. There is no freedom to choose in a climate of collusion and a culture of conformity. The conspiracy is real. https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/michelle-malkin/2021/03/31/the-global-trace-and-track-regime
- Video clip: Tucker Carlson: ‘I’m infuriated by the lying’ about Biden’s so called ‘infrastructure bill.’ Inflation is becoming a monstrous ‘huge deal’ but no one in media talks about it. This is most assuredly not an “infrastructure” bill. It is a Green Energy, Green New Deal, and Reparations bill. If you want a reparations bill, if you want a Green New Deal, just say so and let’s have the debate, but don’t call it an infrastructure bill because it’s not. It has very little…almost nothing…to do with infrastructure.
The second point I would make is like, at what point do we actually destroy the economy for good by spending money that we print from the Federal Reserve? Hyperinflation…we already have it. Look at the prices of commodities and cryptocurrency, look at the prices of building materials, oil, real estate prices. Asset prices, hard, tangible asset prices are skyrocketing. It’s called inflation and makes it much harder for the average person to live in this country, to afford to eat, or live somewhere.
- Video clip: Shaun Hannity: The Biden administration is waging ‘all-out assault’ on American principles; it is intentional on their part to destroy this Nation, and thereby usher in the “Great Reset.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/sean-hannity-biden-administration-waging-all-out-assault-on-american-principles
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.
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:
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 now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid…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.
