Brothers and sisters in Christ…

Once a great and respected Christian Nation, God has made us the laughingstock of the world.  God has determined by Divine decree that our Nation will be destroyed.  “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat!  Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.”  God has Personally stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22]  He has caused their thinking to become utterly confused…just as He had warned…so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation!  You see it unfolding before your very eyes every day!  The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused. [Deut 28:28]  

  • Video clip:  Tucker Carlson: The Biden Administration put on full display for all the World to see…on National television: This is how to humiliate the United States.  Some large, but as yet still unknown number of American citizens are trapped in Afghanistan tonight, all of them facing potential death.  And here we have the senior NCO in the United States Army celebrating Women’s Equity Day, whatever that is…send in the pregnant fighter pilots.  It’s all so humiliating.  Serious people are laughing at us.
    If you wanted to destroy the United States, this is how you would do it.  If you wanted to permanently knock the U.S. from its perch as the preeminent world power and degrade and humiliate America for good, you might use Afghanistan to do that.  As the occupying power, you would run Afghanistan so badly, with such unbelievable stupidity and overbearing arrogance that by the end much of the population would yearn for the return of brutal religious extremists.  Then, having done all of that, you go on television back in your own country to brag about what an amazing job you’ve done.  You’d call yourself a hero.  You’d compare your evacuation of Kabul to the Berlin airlift. And that way, once you done that, the rest of the world would know you’re not simply incompetent and weak, but you’re also delusional.  You are a lunatic with no self-respect.
    Having learned all that, your enemies just might conclude that now is the perfect time to take advantage of your diminished condition.  And today in Kabul, they did just that.  A terror bombing at the airport killed ninety people and injured 150 more.  Thirteen of the dead were American servicemen…12 Marines and a Navy corpsman.  For the U.S. military, it was the single deadliest day in Afghanistan in a decade.  It was a tragedy and we saw it on television.
    What did the Pentagon do with it?  Well, not much.  Apparently, they were too busy tweeting about equity.  This morning, the sergeant major of the Army, a man called Michael Grinston, wrote this, “Women’s Equality Day reminds us we’re smarter and more lethal when we come together as an inclusive, cohesive team.”  What a clueless moron!
    Joe Biden doesn’t really need the U.S. military to protect the Kabul airport because the Taliban, in his mindless opinion, now have that covered.  General Kenneth McKenzie explained this today at a press conference.  “We also use the Taliban as a tool to protect us; we share a common purpose.”  So we now share a “common purpose” with the Taliban…that’s the head of the US military telling us that.  So naturally, the Taliban are now in charge of protecting our citizens…despite the fact the Taliban has been killing Americans for more than two decades until the recent 2020 ceasefire agreement.  Hey, America, here’s your new bodyguards.  The bad news is, they’re the Taliban.
    It’s hard to believe any of this is actually happening, or that quote is real, but it is happening.  So what kind of information is the Biden administration now handing over to the Taliban?  Well, according to Politico, “U.S. officials gave the Taliban a list of names of U.S. citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the outer perimeter of the city’s airport.”  Wait, what?  We gave the Taliban the names of U.S. citizens in Afghanistan.  We don’t have special operators anymore?  Why are we doing that?  Why would you give it to the Taliban?  That can’t be right.  Well, it is right.  It’s true.  The Biden Administration handed the Taliban a list of Americans who are still in Afghanistan.  Joe Biden all but confirmed that today, apparently it makes the Taliban’s job easier.  The question is, what exactly is that job?  That’s one of many questions tonight.  https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-talibans-job-easier-biden-list-americans-afghanistan
  • News article: US Gave Taliban Names of Americans, Afghan Allies to Evacuate.  The Taliban got the names from U.S. officials of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies who’d be allowed into the militant-controlled perimeter of the Kabul airport…permission that outraged critics called a ”kill list,” Politico reported.  ”Basically, they just put all those Afghans on a kill list,” one unnamed defense official told Politico.  ”It’s just appalling and shocking and makes you feel unclean.”
  • News article: Biden Admin slammed for ‘borderline treason’ over giving names of Americans and Afghan allies to Taliban, despite the fact the Taliban has been killing Americans for more than two decades until the recent 2020 ceasefire agreement.  
  • News article: Sergeant Major of the Army prioritizes ‘diversity’ amid Afghanistan evacuation.  Amid ongoing evacuation efforts in Afghanistan, and shortly before an explosion left 13 U.S. service members dead and several wounded, Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston highlighted diversity within the U.S. Army for Women’s Equality Day. 
  • News article: Sean Parnell: Witnessing Biden ‘bend the knee’ to Taliban is ‘soul-crushing.’  Parnell slammed Biden’s ‘blunders’ including closing down the Bagram Air Force Base and evacuating troops before citizens.
  • News article: Biden’s moment to step up to the plate tarnished by one word…INSTRUCTED…as the world waits for America’s next move.  President Biden says he was ‘instructed’ to call on reporters from list at presser following Kabul attacks.  President Biden raised eyebrows on Thursday as he began taking questions from reporters for the first time since the Kabul terror attacks.  “Ladies and gentlemen, they gave me a list here.  The first person I was instructed to call on was Kelly O’Donnell from NBC,” Biden kicked off the press conference.  Critics asked ‘Who the hell is in charge here?’ in reaction to the viral moment.  
  • Video clip: Laura Ingraham: Afghan crisis results in ‘Biden’s body bags’ as ‘band of incompetents’ affects real lives.  The host told Biden chief of staff Ronald Klain to ‘take charge’ instead of ‘watching US go down the drain.’
    “For the past week, Biden and his team have spun over and over that the evacuation was going well.  Today we see the truth.  This was all total hogwash.  This is a catastrophe.  If you and your team can’t handle this mission, why should we trust you to handle any mission?”
    “Our enemies know now that we’re being led by a band of incompetents.
      And none of them are shaking in their boots from Biden’s promise [to ‘hunt you down and make you pay’].”  Ingraham said president Biden and his top stateside military brass have failed the American people, the Afghan civilians, and our other allies.  https://www.foxnews.com/media/ingraham-afghan-crisis-bidens-body-bags

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.  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: Todd Starnes: From Gwinnett County, Georgia comes a terrible story about a 17-year-old white basketball player who was brutally beaten by a gang of black athletes.  The entire attack was captured on video.  Nick Cox was slammed onto the basketball court.  The video shows the boy being shoved into a corner where he was relentlessly pummeled.  Other players stood around and laughed while the helpless teen was being brutalized.  The 17-year-old was left with a broken jaw, whiplash and a severe concussion.  The attack was so violent…Nick’s jaw was broken in three places and tore through the skin.  He is facing multiple surgeries.  Not a single person bothered to come to the boy’s rescue.  Not a one.  People actually applauded.  “I don’t understand that.  I can’t even now understand it.  I don’t know where the disconnect is with seeing someone get hurt and finding joy and humor.  I can’t fathom that, and it haunts me,” Allyssa Cox told television station WAGA.  
  • A Nation divided against itself SHALL NOT STAND.  Abba Father… America has been destroyed by Your Own Divine Decree, and it is irreversible.
    We are divided racially;
    We are divided morally;
    We are divided socially;
    We are divided spiritually;
    We are divided politically;
    We are divided by ideology;
    We are divided by vaccination status;
    An entire generation of children has been brainwashed, indoctrinated, and poisoned.  This is God’s judgment visited upon the children to the 3rd and 4th generation, and it is a punishment brought about because of the iniquity of the fathers.  They were careless, complacent, and indifferent toward their responsibility to protect the moral and spiritual well-being of their children.

    This is why I weep and my eyes overflow with tears.  No one is near to comfort me, no one to restore my spirit.  My children are destitute, because the enemy has prevailed. [Lam 1:16]   

  • There are MOUNTAINS of  factual evidence and data you need to be aware of that these mRNA vaccines are dangerous and oftentimes deadly… and that is just the observable immediate results of being vaccinated.  No one knows what the intermediate and long-range effects are, because they have never been administered to humans before.  mRNA vaccines are only now beginning to be tested in humans.  There are a lot of fairly basic unknowns which can only be answered through human trials.  If you take this vaccine, you become their guinea pig.  Brethren…I urge you to click on this link to my website, where I have posted the MOUNTAINS of evidence and data that these mRNA vaccines are dangerous and oftentimes deadly: https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/03/09/august-25-2021/

Beloved…I am your refuge and strength, an ever-present help in your times of trouble.  Therefore, do not fear…though the Earth be shaken and the mountains be carried into the depths of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, and the mountains tremble as the waters surge! [Triune God…Ps 46:1-3]

ETERNAL PROMISE: MY PROMISED REST: Genuine Faith Leads into My Promised Rest

My beloved child…Don’t you know?  Don’t you understand?  Without faith, it is impossible to please Me.  Faith is not belief only; faith is a verb…an action word.  Faith is the living out of your life in a manner that bears witness to the truth of what you say you believe.  What you believe in your mind is not faith until you have acted in reliance upon that belief.  Faith is an action that bears witness to your…

  • Unwavering child-like trust in Me;
  • Unreserved child-like dependence upon Me;
  • Unquestioning child-like obedience to do My will, and to accept My will.

No matter how fierce the storms raging in your life may be, the confirmation in your spirit that you have genuine faith will be…

  • Your undaunted resting in Me with an unruffled child-like rest;
  • Your undaunted abiding in Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy.

Genuine faith is the power that overcomes all obstacles, all adversities.  There is an active power of faith that overcomes by securing deliverance from the adversity, when deliverance is in accordance with My will.  And there is a passive power of faith that overcomes by enduring adversity, when deliverance is not My will.  Genuine faith is triumphant both in its active power to victoriously overcome and conquer evil, and in its passive power to persevere and endure evil, even unto death.  In one case, it conquers the enemy or the difficulty by securing its removal or destruction.  In the other, there is no deliverance from the adversity, and yet faith conquers in the power it receives to endure, and to prove that its spirit is superior to all that men or devils can do.

My child…your “faith” is not proven to be genuine faith until it withstands the furnace of affliction…until it endures the fire.  These testings have come in order that the genuineness of your faith, which faith is examined by testing for the purpose of being proven genuine…that approval being much more precious than the fire-testing of gold to prove its genuineness and which, even so, perishes…may be found, after scrutiny, to result in praise, glory, and honor at the time of the revelation of Jesus Christ.

What good is it, My beloved, if you claim to have faith but have no good works to show for it?  Can such “faith” save your soul?  Faith by itself, in the form of a stated belief but not accompanied by actions that bear witness to that stated belief, is destitute of power and dead.  Someone may well say to you, “You claim to have faith, and I, for my part, have good works.  Now prove to me your actual possession of the faith you claim to possess apart from any accompanying good works, and I by my actions that bear witness to my stated belief will prove to you my actual possession of faith.”  Are you so slow to understand?  You are pronounced righteous in My sight through what you do bearing witness to your stated belief, and not alone through a so called “faith” merely in the form of a stated belief.  For just as the body apart from the breath of life is dead, so also faith in the form of a stated belief , but not accompanied by deeds and actions of obedience to back it up, is destitute of power and dead.

Abba Father…I understand; please help me by the power of Your enabling grace to fully embrace this!  The all-prevailing, all pervading, atmosphere in which my soul lives and moves and has its very being is an unwavering child-like trust in You.  It is the framework out of which everything in my life is determined…every action I take, every response to the things that touch my life, every word I speak, and every thought I think and present.  Everything I am to do is filtered through an unwavering child-like trust in You, Father.  No matter what circumstances, events, or things that take place to touch my life, they pass through this atmosphere of my unwavering child-like trust, and do not disturb my unruffled child-like rest.  It simply prompts me to turn to Your Holy Spirit in an unreserved child-like dependence for His direction as to how I am to respond.  In this all-prevailing, all-pervading, atmosphere of unwavering child-like trust, my soul is continually at rest in You, Father, with an unruffled child-like rest.  Though the storms of life may be raging…a fierce tempest whipping the waves into a tumultuous, churning turmoil…beneath the surface, in the depths of God, all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled!  Hallelujah!  

Friends, brothers and sisters…

No one born into this world is automatically God’s child…only those who are born again by a conscious and deliberate decision of their own free will can become children of God.  Jesus came into this world, and to all who will receive Him, to those who embrace the truth of Who He is and confidently put their trust in Him, He gave the right to become children of God. [John 1:10-13]  Jesus made that very clear to Nicodemus: 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. [John 3:3, 5-7]

Unless you are born again…born of the Holy Spirit…you cannot enter the Kingdom of God.  A person is born physically of human parents, but is born spiritually of the Spirit.
You can only be born again by acknowledging that Jesus is the Christ, the Divine Son of the Triune God [Father, Son, Holy Spirit], the sacrificial Lamb of God Who came into this world to become the one only, all-sufficient, atoning Sacrifice through His death on the cross and subsequent resurrection, thereby securing forgiveness for your sins and restoring your relationship with God that had been severed by your sins.

And believing the above is not enough either.  A person must also receive Jesus the Christ into their life as both Lord over their life and Savior of their soul.  That is done by making a solemn vow before God, giving yourself to become the bride of Christ in a divine spiritual marriage.  Apart from what I have explained above, you cannot enter the Kingdom of God…you cannot be in Heaven.  And friend…there is only one other neighborhood available.

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…
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.”

Revelation 12:1-17

A great and wondrous sign appeared in Heaven: a woman clothed with the brilliant light of the sun, robed with its purity and magnificently radiant, with the moon…that symbol of the powers of darkness…under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head befitting her celestial royalty and dominion…already enthroned, judging human beings and judging angels...Yahweh’s Queen!  None other than the visible Church of the Living God on Earth throughout all ages and in all places is the precious bride symbolically portrayed by this glorious woman, fashioned out of Christ by the hand and Spirit of God from that deep sleep of His for the sins of the world, bone of His bones and flesh of His flesh…as woman was fashioned out of Adam from the deep sleep that fell upon him for that purpose…and in whom all its highest excellencies and chief characteristics are summed up from the beginning even unto the great consummation!  She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth to her royal children, who have therein been begotten, nourished, and borne throughout the ages, now to be brought forth in her birth-hour as lords and princes of the eternal realm.  

Then another sign appeared in Heaven: an enormous, fierce and malignant, fiery blood-red dragon with seven heads and ten horns…a symbol of none other than that ancient serpent called the Devil, or Satan who, with cunning and genius unsurpassed only by that of the Eternal Uncreated Mind, leads the whole world astray.  And he had seven crowns on his heads, denoting his usurped control over the entirety of sovereign governments, over the universal secular dominion of this world, throughout all ages and in all places, continually using their power as instruments to accomplish his murderous and malignant purposes to harm, wound and afflict; to oppress, injure and destroy; to bring about misery, sorrow and suffering.  His tail swept away a third of the stars of the Heaven…those beautiful and gloriously created angelic hosts, swept out of the sky-regions as a result of their allegiance to him in his rebellion…and flung them to the lowly earth-regions below to meet the same fate as his; plucked out and thrown down from their lofty setting as bright morning stars, debased and dethroned forever, reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the Great Day.  The Dragon stood ready in front of the Woman who was about to give birth to her royal seed, with rage inflamed, intent upon annihilation, so that he might devour her child…the symbolic representation of the entire regenerated purchase of the Savior’s Blood…the moment it was born, thereby to carry out his malignant will to destroy God’s Kingdom.  She gave birth to a son, a male child…symbolic of the genuine children of God, begotten of the Holy Spirit, whose characteristics are yet hidden, who are only to be manifested by their resurrection and translation at that Great Day, and for whom all the Creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.  It is these royal children who will rule over all the nations of the world with an iron scepter, governing, disciplining and controlling all the peoples of the Earth with absolute, irresistible, authority and power…as a shepherd presides over his flock.  He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of Heaven to the other; and so her child, new-born into immortality and eternal life, was snatched up to God and to His Throne and granted, as promised by the Lord Jesus, “To sit with Me in My Throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His Throne.”  The Woman…Yahweh’s Queen…fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

And there was a monumental war in Heaven over the birth and coronation of this male child…these royal seed as lords and princes of the eternal realmThe issue at stake is this glorious exaltation of the saints that the Devil and his angels have ever exerted all their subtlety and power throughout the ages to defeat.  Michael and his angels fought against the Dragon, and the Dragon and his angels fought back.  But the Dragon was not nearly strong enough, and they lost forever their place in Heaven.  Foiled at every point, he stands revealed to all Heaven in all the devilish baseness of his true character, and all his hosts as the ministers and abettors of Satanic falsehood and the most hellish malignity.  The great Dragon was thus hurled down…that ancient serpent called the Devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray.  He was hurled to the Earth below, and all his angels swept out of the sky-regions along with him; henceforward neither he nor his angels are ever anymore to have the liberty of the heavenly spaces.  How you are fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! 

Then, all Heaven is filled with rejoicing, and I heard a loud voice in Heaven say, even as in mighty volume the triumphal song rings out:
“Now have come the salvation and the Power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ.  For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night…claiming that these people are not fit for and not worthy of such honors; that God disowns His holiness, and casts dishonor on His Throne by awarding to such people such a portion and such a destiny; that all reasonable being and intelligence is set at naught and outraged by such a proceeding…has been hurled down.  They overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb…whose meritorious Blood, weighed in all the strictness of eternal right, covers the whole amplitude of their deficiencies, and cleanses away all account of their sins…and by the word of their testimony, and by the fact that they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.  Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them!  But woe to the Earth and the sea, because the Devil has gone down to you!  He is filled with unwonted rage and fury, because he knows that his time is short; that but a few brief years remain until his reign is over and the Abyss is his prison-house.” 

When the Dragon saw that he had been hurled to the Earth, he pursued the Woman who had given birth to the male child.  Under the dominion of his appointed ruler, the Beast…who receives his power, his throne, and his great authority from the Devil… the remaining members of the visible church on Earth are persecuted as never before.  There will be no living under him without accepting him in place of God and of Christ.  The Woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly swiftly and out of reach of her adversary to the place prepared for her in the desert… just as in the days when Israel fled into the wilderness of Sinai to escape the wrath of Egypt…where she would be taken care of, nourished, and strengthened for a time, times, and half a time, out of the Serpent’s reach.  Then from his mouth the Serpent spewed water like a river…a host of armed forces sent forth from his agent the Beast… to overtake the Woman and sweep her away with the torrent.  But the Earth at God’s command miraculously helped the Woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river of soldiers that the Dragon had spewed out of his mouth.  Then the Dragon, completely thwarted and frustrated in his malignant will to destroy, was enraged at the Woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring… those yet remaining on the Earth who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.  [Revelation 12:1-17]  

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 Eartha 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 returnsEven now as I write, Joe Biden has introduced legislation that now legalizes these illegal aliens.  Mark my words, folks.  Republicans will NEVER again win another National election.  January 7, 2021, marks that infamous day when our once great Constitutional Republic officially became a Totalitarian Dictatorship.
  • Video clip: Tucker Carlson: Migrant surge will ‘change the country forever.’  Biden’s immigration actions are an all-out attempt to forever change election outcomes.  Democrats are intentionally importing illegal aliens to expand their voting base.  https://www.foxnews.com/media/tucker-carlson-border-situation-country-forever
  • Video clip: Tucker Carlson: Every House Democrat signs on to sweeping HR 1 bill now before Congress.  It will legalize going forward all the outright, blatant, in-your-face fraudulent procedures used by the Democrats to hijack our Nation in the 2020 presidential elections.  HR. 1 is a “Federal government takeover” designed to guarantee we will never have a Constitutional President again.  https://www.foxnews.com/politics/every-house-democrat-signs-on-to-hr1
  • The EQUALITY ACT has now been brought before Congress, and has already been passed by the House of Representatives.  “We are expecting the Equality Act, if it passes the Senate [which it will, because the Democrats control all 3 branches of our Government], will be used to bludgeon religious liberty in this country in ways undreamt of by most Christians.” The utter destruction to First Amendment liberty by these sexual radicals is going to be horrifying beyond measure.  “The Democratic Party, run by secular progressives in this country, are in love with the sexual revolution…and they are openly hostile to religious liberty…because, according to Romans 1, these are folks who hate God and hate His created order.  So, anything that is in open rebellion to that created order…such as homosexual activity, the destruction of gender norms, which are clearly rooted in biology…anything like that which is representative of the way God has created mankind is going to be in their crosshairs.”
    Here is a chilling article from the Heritage Foundation that puts this stark reality into sobering perspective, that you really need to read, to understand the magnitude of the persecution of Christians and Christian churches that Satan is going to unleash in these End Times days:
    https://www.heritage.org/gender/heritage-explains/the-equality-act

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.  

BRACE YOURSELF

Morning by morning He dispenses His justice, and every new day He does not fail.  Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled!  She obeys no one; she accepts no correction!  She does not trust in the Lord; she does not draw near to her God.  Its leaders are like roaring lions hunting for their victims.  Its judges are like ravenous wolves at evening time, who by dawn have left no trace of their prey.  Her prophets are arrogant liars seeking their own gain; they are treacherous men.  Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law.  Even so, the Lord within her is righteous; He does no wrong.  Yet the wicked, without conscience and without shame, persist in doing evil.  I, the Lord, have wiped out many nations, devastating their fortress walls and towers.  Their streets are now deserted; their cities lie in silent ruin.  There are no survivors…none at all.  I thought, Surely they will have reverence for Me now!  Surely they will listen to My warnings and accept My discipline and correction.  Then I won’t need to strike again, destroying their homes nor visit all my punishments upon her.  But no, they get up early to continue their evil deeds!
Therefore earnestly wait for Me, says the Lord, for the day when I rise up to the attack as accuser and judge!  For My decision and determination and right it is to gather the nations together, to assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, even all the heat of My fierce anger; for in that day all the Earth shall be consumed with the fire of My jealous anger! [Zeph 3:1-8]

Wisdom shouts in the streets.  She cries out in the public square.  She calls to the crowds along the main street, to those gathered in front of the city gate: How long, you simpletons, will you insist on being simpleminded?  How long will you mockers relish your mocking?  How long will you fools hate knowledge?  If only you would turn and repent and give heed to my reproof, behold, I will pour out My Spirit upon you, I will make My words known to you.  I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come.  I reached out to you, but you paid no attention.  You ignored My advice, rejected the correction I offered, and would accept none of My reproof.
Therefore I will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic…when your panic comes as a storm and desolation and calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.  When you cry for help, I will not answer.  Though you anxiously search for Me, you will not find Me.  Because you hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord.  You rejected My advice and counsel, and despised all My reproof.  Therefore you shall eat of the fruit of your own way and be satiated with your own devices.  For simpletons turn away from Me…even unto their death.  Fools are destroyed by their own self-confident complacency.  But all who listen to Me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm. [Prov 1:20-33]

We have conveniently chosen to ignore the lessons of God’s judgment of destruction on every great empire throughout history…Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Rome…and now in our present day we have totally forgotten the lessons God has been trying to teach America over the years.  Our godlessness has only and continually escalated through the years; we’ve sinned far worse than our ancestors EVER did!  We are far more wicked than they EVER were!  God has therefore determined by His Own Divine decree to destroy our Nation….and for obvious good reason!  Brothers and sisters…IT IS FINISHED!   

Beloved…I still hold to these words of warning from the Holy Spirit:
“Brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things.  Ready or not, Nation, here it comes!  Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength.  Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm!  Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end.”

Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath against your enemies has passed.  For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity.  The Earth will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt.  They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21]  How long, Sovereign Lord, Holy and True, until you judge the inhabitants of the Earth and avenge our blood? [Rev 6:10]   
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.  

PREPARE YOURSELF

We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near!  And so, my brothers and sisters, first of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.  They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised?  Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of Creation.”
Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing.  Tell the people, This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it.  Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: The time has come for every prophecy of Mine to be fulfilled!  [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes.  God’s holy remnant is called to a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our Forerunner.  You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own.  Obedience is what characterizes the life of My child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night.  You are called to a life of obedience.  Obedience is better than sacrifice; rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as evil as worshiping idols. [1 Sam 15:22,23]
Wherefore brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by the way which He dedicated for us…a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of His flesh…let us then without further hesitation or delay draw nigh in fullness of faith; here let us continually abide in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10:19-20, 22]  Those who abide in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [PS 91:1]

Friends, brothers and sisters, this is our Lord’s exhortation…

Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:

  • Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church.  The current ongoing persecution of the Church and of Christians is going to escalate exponentially; it is going to get MUCH WORSE. 
  • Pray for the cleansing of the corruption in the Church.  God is going to expose and purge corruption within His Church, and separate the wheat from the chaff…separate His True church from the apostate churches that no longer belong to Him.  He is going to expose false prophets and teachers, and wolves dressed in sheep clothing pretending to be shepherds.
    These are the days of the separation of the wheat from the chaff.  But also in those days there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves.  They preach prosperity, wealth, and health; good times, and all is well.  From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit.  They dress the wound of My people as though it were not serious.  “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace.  Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct?  No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush!  They will subtly and cleverly teach their destructive heresies about God, even denying the Sovereign Lord Who bought them.  Theirs will be a swift and terrible end.
    Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality.  And because of them, Christ and His true way will be slandered.  In their greed they will make up clever lies and cunning arguments to get hold of your money.  With eyes full of adultery, their lust is never satisfied.  They make a game of beguiling and luring unstable people into sin.  They train themselves to be greedy; they are doomed and cursed.  But God condemned them long ago, and their eternal misery is on the way.
    The word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying.  Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: Hear the word of the Lord!  This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing!  Your prophets, O Israel, are like jackals among ruins.  You have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the Day of the Lord.  Their visions are false and their divinations a lie.  They say, “The Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them; yet they expect their words to be fulfilled.  Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken?  Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord.  My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. [Jer 6:13-15; 2 Peter 2:1-3, 14; Ezek 13:1-9] 
  • Pray for a Great Harvest.  It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere.  Jesus said to them, “Go throughout the whole world and preach the good news of the Gospel to everyone, everywhere.  With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me. [Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47]
    And now, Lord God Almighty…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who sow in tears, invoking the Lord of the Harvest, will reap with songs of Joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying bountiful sheaves from the harvest with him! [Ps 126:3-6]  

Arise My bride, and prepare for battle

There is going to be severe Satanic, demonic attacks against God’s holy remnant of committed, uncompromising, steadfast Christians, pastors, and leaders [not the lukewarm], and against marriages, families, and children.  There is going to be severe attacks and intense persecution coming from pretending “Christians” within the church,  against pastors who preach the uncompromised Word of God.  For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching for something self-pleasing and gratifying, they will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.  [2 Tim 4:3-5]
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.  Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.  And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. [Matt 24:10-14]
Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you!  He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. [Rev 12:12] 

Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face

Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.
Then the angel said to me, “Write this down: Blessed are those summoned to the marriage banquet of the Lamb…all true believers who are members of His Universal Church.  They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with Power and great Glory.  And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect…God’s holy people…from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”  And he said to me further, “These are the True Words of God.” [Rev 19:9]
Blessed Jesus…I rejoice and shout triumphantly for joy!  I celebrate and ascribe to You glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb draws near, and Your bride, the Universal Church and each of her members, has been preparing herself and has made herself ready! [Rev 19:7]  Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!  For our Lord God, Sovereign All-Ruler, reigns!  Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him Glory!  For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready.  The finest linen, dazzling and white, was given her to wear.  Then the angel said to me, “Write: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage banquet of the Lamb!” [John…Rev 19:6-9; Luke 14:15-23]
The washing of one’s robes and the keeping of one’s garments relates to this very attitude and habit of looking for the return of Christ as an imminent event.    Brethren, as you hope to walk those golden streets, and eat of those immortal fruits, see to it that you have your garments clean and your loins girded about like unto men waiting for their Lord. [Seiss…Rev 21:9-22:5]
Then the king said to his servants, “The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come.  Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.”  So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.  But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding garment.  “Friend,” he asked, “How did you come in here without putting on the appropriate wedding garment?” The man was speechless.  Then the king told the attendants, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  For many are invited and summoned, but few are chosen.” [Matt 22:8-14
]

ENDURE TO THE END

I am coming quickly.  Hold on to what you have, so that no one will deprive you of your crown.  Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…I will make a pillar in the Sanctuary of My God.  Never again will you leave it.  I will write on you the name of My God and you will be a citizen in the city of My God…the new Jerusalem…which will come down out of Heaven from My God; I will also write on you My Own new name.

Holy:
