Brothers and sisters in Christ…

Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…4th part of a new weekly 10 sermon series by Dr. David Jeremiah…proving that we are currently living in the End Times prophesied in Scripture.  I will be posting all the messages in this series as they are presented.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching these video presentations.  
Sunday 10/10: Economic Chaos…A Financial Prophecy
https://www.davidjeremiah.org/television/weekend?date=2021-10-10

The Bible warns there will be the Anti-christ…a man who proclaims to be God…who will unite the world in a one world government, with a one world financial system, and establish a one world religion.
While we cannot predict “the day or the hour,” when you put all these components together, it’s starting to look even now a lot like the beginnings of the End Times.  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, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name! [Revelation 13:16-17] 

  • The vaccine mandate with its “vaccine passport,” without which you won’t be able to buy or sell…your kids won’t be able to attend school, you will not be allowed to go to work, or go into any store or facility open to the public, or travel anywhere, or attend any sporting events or live entertainment, or to enter movie theaters, or do anything…is the forerunner of, and preparation for, the mark of the Beast. 
  • The Global Reset with its one world government and one world financial system…now being ushered in through the on-going destruction of the Constitutional Republic of America which stood in the way of the principles and dictates of the Anti-christ…is the preparation of the way for the coming rule and reign of the Anti-christ. 

1]  Global Reset: Preparation of the Way For the Anti-christ

Following are excerpts from an article on the descent of our Nation into a Totalitarian dictatorship you really need to read.  At the end of these excerpts, there is a link to the entire article.  News Article: Dr. Mercola: Public Officials Call for Selective Elimination of Free Speech; Free Speech Threatened by Censorship Extremists.  This Is How Hitler Would Have ‘Burned Books’ in 2021.  See how history is now repeating itself to destroy all bases of human thought using modern technology.  Don’t let these psychopaths swindle us.
“This is very scary stuff.  Agents of the state now identify critics of the COVID vaccine as their mortal enemies.  How did we get here?  And how did we get to the point where the government is targeting people who don’t agree with them?  This is way beyond Orwell.  We have entered some creepy alternate universe.”
As for the growing pressure to vaccinate or become a second-class citizen, I believe the answer is to stand firm in your belief, resist coercion and expose propaganda.  Everyone, all around the world, face this rapidly approaching dilemma.
In the meantime, consider ditching social media networks that erode your civil liberties, and to join those that promote freedom of speech instead.  For example, free-speech alternatives to Facebook and Twitter include Gab, MeWe, Gettr, Minds and Parler.  Uncensored alternatives to YouTube include Bitchute, Rumble, Brighteon, Banned.video and Thinkspot.  https://www.dropbox.com/s/mg8z6v48t962ha1/9-6-freedom-of-speech-threatened-by-censorship-extremists-pdf.pdf?dl=0

2]  Vaccine Mandate: Certifiably Dangerous Drug 

Following are excerpts from an article on mRNA vaccines you really need to read.  At the end of these excerpts, there is a link to the entire article.  News Article: Dr. Mercola: Study: COVID Jab Makes You 6.72 Times More Likely to Get Infected.  Proactive Use of COVID Shots Also Drive Dangerous Mutations.

  • It’s now clear that early warnings against mass vaccination during an active outbreak are being realized.  It’s not the unvaccinated that are driving mutations; it’s the vaccinated, as the injections simply do not prevent infection.  “Vaccines Are Pushing Pathogens to Evolve,” published in Quanta Magazine, “Just as antibiotics breed resistance in bacteria, vaccines can incite changes that enable diseases to escape their control.”  The virus is becoming increasingly deadly and more difficult to treat.  The end result, if we keep going, will be a treadmill of continuous injections to keep up with the merry-go-round of waning effectiveness in general, combined with the emergence of mutations into more lethal vaccine-resistant variants.
  • CDC Admits ‘Vaccine’ Immunity Doesn’t Last
    According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people who got the COVID shot early are now at increased risk for severe COVID disease.  “In the context of these concerns, we are planning for Americans to receive booster shots starting next month to maximize vaccine induced protection.”  The goalposts back to a ‘normal’ society continue to be moved further and further.  When will Americans, especially those who complied with initial vaccinations, have had enough?
  • Data Reveal Rapidly Waning Immunity From Shots
    Israeli data show Pfizer’s shot went from a 95% effectiveness at the outset, to 64% in early July 2021 and 39% by late July, when the Delta strain became predominant.  In addition, many who are double-jabbed are ending up in the hospital.  We’re already seeing a shift in hospitalization rates from the unvaccinated to those who have gotten one or two injections.  By mid-August, 59% of serious COVID cases were among Israelis who had received two COVID injections.  This may be a sign that antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) is occurring, or it may simply indicate that the protection offered is limited to a few months, at best.
  • Vaxxed Over Age 50 at Increased Risk for Serious Infection
    Data from the U.K. show among those over the age of 50 that partially and fully “vaccinated” people account for 68% of hospitalizations and 70% of COVID deaths.
  • 80% of COVID Hospitalizations in Massachusetts Were Vaxxed
    The CDC also confirmed that fully vaccinated individuals who contract the infection have as high a viral load in their nasal passages as unvaccinated individuals who get infected, proving there’s no difference between the two, in terms of being a transmission risk.  If vaccination status has no bearing on the potential risk you pose to others, why do we need vaccine passports?  According to Harvard epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff, this evidence demolishes the case for passports.
  • Study Predicts Pfizer Shot Will Enhance Delta Infectivity
    A study posted August 23, 2021 now warns the Delta variant “is poised to acquire complete resistance to wild-type spike vaccines.”  This could essentially turn into a worst-case scenario that sets up those who have received the Pfizer shots for more severe illness when exposed to the virus.
  • Vaccinated People Can Serve as Breeding Ground for Mutations
    Before 2021, it was quite clear that vaccines push viruses to mutate into more dangerous strains.  In short, like bacteria mutate and get stronger to survive the assault of antibacterial agents, viruses can mutate in vaccinated individuals who contract the virus, and in those, it will mutate to evade the immune system.  In an unvaccinated person, on the other hand, the virus does not encounter the same evolutionary pressure to mutate into something stronger. So, if SARS-CoV-2 does end up mutating into more lethal strains, then mass vaccination is the most likely driver. 
  • What This Means Going Forward
    “The pandemic is in a phase where the unvaccinated are facing the vengeance of a more aggressive strain of COVID-19.  It’s also an era when the vaccinated are grappling with the reality that their shots are not completely preventing them from becoming infected or transmitting COVID to others.”  It is highly likely, in fact even predictable, that despite its dramatic ineffectiveness, the requirement for one or two COVID jabs will soon be turned into three, and vaccine passport holders who don’t want to get that third shot will be back at Square 1.  They’ll be just as much outcasts as those who got no shots.  Considering the speed at which SARS-CoV-2 is mutating, you can be assured there’ll be a fourth shot, and a fifth and, well, you get the idea.  Vaccine passports and COVID jab requirements will simply lead to a situation where you have to keep getting additional shots or lose all your privileges.  Of course, every single injection comes with health risks, and the risk for an adverse event will get bigger and bigger with each additional shot.  You will be caught up in a never-ending lifelong periodic vaccination program…if you survive.  
  • Five-Month Booster Shot Now Under Consideration
    Unfortunately, rather than accepting reality…which is that SARS-CoV-2 is here to stay, just like any number of other common cold and influenza viruses…and stopping the merry-go-round of injections that only make matters worse.  To “stay ahead of the virus,” the Biden administration is now considering recommending a booster shot five months after the initial two doses rather than waiting eight months, as previously suggested.  Anyone who thinks one or more booster shots are the answer to SARS-CoV-2 is likely fooling themselves though.  I look forward with trepidation to data on hospitalization and death rates, not to mention side effect rates, in the months to come.  Knowing what we already know about the risks of these shots and their tendency to encourage mutations, it seems reasonable to suspect that all we’re doing is digging ourselves an ever-deeper, ever-wider hole that’s going to be increasingly difficult to get out of. 
  • Forget the Orwellian CDC and FDA doublespeak, says this expert…they’re saying the complete opposite of what is true.  More Than 200,000 Have Already Died From the COVID Jab in the US, a far higher number than the 15,386 deaths reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) as of September 17, 2021.  An estimated 300,000 Americans suffered permanent disability from the COVID shots, and anywhere from 2 million to 5 million may have suffered adverse reactions.
    While authorities insist the COVID shots are “safe and effective,” mounting data tell a different story.  Not only are the injections losing effectiveness within months, as demonstrated by Israeli data, VAERS has also received more than 726,960 adverse events reports following the COVID shot, including 15,386 deaths and 66,642 hospitalizations, as of September 17, 2021.  These numbers are so staggering, there’s really nothing that can compare.  In nine months, these shots have caused more VAERS reports of injury and death in the United States than all available vaccines combined over the past 30 years.  A similar situation can be seen in the U.K., where 30,305 people have died within 21 days of their COVID shot.  And that was just within the first six months of the vaccine rollout.  
  • Certifiably Dangerous mRNA Experimental Drug
    Ask yourself this: Why would a normal, rational person be eager to have an experimental cocktail injected into his bloodstream potentially triggering all manner of long-term ailments or death?  Is that the choice a normal person would make?”  Whatever you do…don’t let the  Marxist Biden Administration FORCE YOU TO TAKE THIS “VACCINE.”  AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE!  The reality is…the quality of your life, and the quality of the lives of your children, are dependent on NOT taking this dangerous mRNA drug.

3]  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.  These specific antibodies, the ones produced by the vaccines, are permanent…there is no off-switch.  They are there forever within the bodies of the vaccinated.  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.
Whatever you do…don’t let the Marxist Biden Administration FORCE YOU TO TAKE THIS “VACCINE.  AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE!  The reality is…the quality of your life, and the quality of the lives of your children, are dependent on NOT taking this dangerous mRNA drug.  

Global Reset: Preparation of the Way For the Anti-christ

Presentation: Dr. Brown: Are things in America really as bad as they seem?  In a word, yes.  The September 29 lead headline on Drudge Report was even more apocalyptic and alarming than normal, featuring a giant YouTube logo, front and center, covered by a red “CANCEL” circle.  The headline declared, “YOUTUBE BANS ALL ‘ANTI-VAX’ CONTENT.’”  Secondary headlines also sounded ominous tones:

  • “Sydney [Australia] warns unvaccinated face total social isolation INDEFINITELY when lockdown ends . . .”; 
  • “UNITED AIRLINES firing employees who refuse shot”; 
  • “Biden Order Mandate Enforcement With Up To $700,000 Fine for every unvaccinated person.  No employer can afford that kind of a fine…it would bankrupt them.  So they are being forced to require this.  Now the employee will lose his job and become unemployed if he refuses to take this certifiably dangerous drug.  Since the vaccine passport is a forerunner of the mark of the Beast…you won’t be able to buy or sell, or do anything without it…it is Satan’s way to prepare you to take his mark when it is presented by the Anti-christ.  If you come up with a reason to justify why you need to take this vaccine in order to participate in whatever, that will be the same reason why you will take the mark of the Beast mandated by the Anti-christ as well 
    This really is ominous.  In response to this news, a Christian attorney wrote, “It’s going to get worse, probably much worse.  The full court press is on with social media, large corporate interests, and Hollywood doing the progressive Left’s bidding.  I’m more worried about what it portends beyond vaccinations.  A governmental-business conglomeration able to do this…literally mandate what people put in their body…can dictate nearly anything about how we live and even how we think.  I’m not optimistic that [the presentation of] good info can stop the juggernaut.  That’s because it’s not about rational discourse…it’s about power and ultimately an anti-christ spirit.”  In other words, this is a bigger battle, one that is both ideological and spiritual.  We dare not minimize the threat. 

Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…as they are even now…the people of the world learn righteousness.  Though God shows grace to the wicked, even so, they still do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. [Luke 21:26; Isa 26:10]
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.  

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 wellIf 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.
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 people in charge are intent on replacing democracy with authoritarianism.  The crimes against the liberal elites’ ideas are the only crimes that matter to them. Democrats now overwhelmingly want their political enemies to be silenced.  More than three-fourths of Democratic Party voters want tech companies to quote “restrict false info online, even if it limits freedom of information.”  And more than 60 percent of Democrats want the federal government to quote, “control that flow of information over the internet.”  That’s Authoritarianism.  There’s no other word for it. 
  • What is it that this country is in turmoil about, and is fighting with itself about?  What are the lines that divide us?  What is the dividing line?  And it’s really simple.  The people in charge are intent on replacing our free democratic system with an authoritarian system where they don’t convince you of anything.  They simply make you do things and they benefit from that. 
  • So that really is the divide.  There are people who are for an Authoritarian America and those who are for a free America.  It’s that simple.  And once you start to understand politics through that lens, you figure out what’s really going on.
  • News article: Todd Starnes:  BREAKING: UCLA Escorts Unvaxxed Doctor From Hospital.  An anesthesiologist at UCLA Health in California was escorted out of his workplace after he refused to get vaccinated.  Dr. Christopher Rake posted video of his ouster on Twitter.  He has reportedly been placed on administrative leave.  When the Mainstream Media and the Biden Administration tell you there’s a shortage of healthcare workers, I want you to remember this story.
    Dr. Rake: “This is what happens when you stand up for freedom and when you show up to work, willing to work, despite being unvaccinated, and this is the price you have to pay sometimes.  But what they don’t realize is that I’m willing to go lose everything…job, paycheck, freedom, even my life for this cause.  United we stand, divided we fall.”
    Brethren…This is how it is going to be in Biden’s communist America.  This doctor has it right…follow him.  There needs to be 75 million American patriots willing to walk away from this vaccine mandate/Vaccine Passport which is the forerunner of, and bears the EXACT same characteristics of, the mark of the Beast…you wont be able to buy or sell, or work, go to school, travel, etc. etc. etc. without it.  This IS the line in the sand.  If you come up with a reason to justify why you need to take this vaccine in order to be allowed to participate in whatever, that will be the same reason why you will take the mark of the Beast presented be the Anti-christ as well. 
  • News article: California opens door to CRT mandates as gov signs controversial bill.  Newsom signs controversial bill requiring ethnic studies for all CA students to graduate.
    Here is an urgent warning of the Holy Spirit to Christians and the American people alike: GET YOUR KIDS OUT OF THE GOVERNMENT’S PUBLIC SCHOOL INDOCTRINATION CAMPS… because the only agenda they have is to brainwash, indoctrinate, and poison your children.  Our schoolchildren, who started Kindergarten in our Public School indoctrination camps in 2004, are utterly destitute…having been completely brainwashed, indoctrinated, and poisoned for 17 years.  It was a tactic used by Hitler…”We will indoctrinate your kids; they won’t know anything else but what we have brainwashed them with.”  As it was with Hitler, they really don’t care about the adults; they will die off, and the ideology the children have been indoctrinated with will become the “new normal.”  This alone has literally destroyed America.  An entire generation of kids have been hijacked…and the pipeline is filled going back 17 years, so that every year going forward we will be graduating another crop of brainwashed, uneducated, militant, angry, entitled and totally ungrateful kids.
    News article: College students hail socialism, endorse killing private property rights.  College students see socialism as ‘good thing,’ would agree to abolish private property rights.

    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]

In that glorious coming Day of the Lord I will proclaim, Surely You are my God; I trusted in You, and You saved me!  You are my Lord; I trust You with an unwavering child-like trust!  I rejoice and am filled with gladness in Your salvation!  Come, children of God…let us sing joyously to our Lord; let us shout aloud to the mighty Rock of our salvation! [Isa 25:9; Ps 95:1]

When our God shall come, even Christ, to set up His Kingdom on the Earth…a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness.  Only the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord will return.  We will enter Zion with singing, our heads crowned with everlasting joy!  Gladness and joy will overtake me, forever free from sorrow and grief! [Isa 35:8-10]

Lord God Almighty…Who was there when You formed the seas and all that is in them, and set their boundaries that they might not transgress it? [Neh 9:6; Ps 74:13-17]
Whoever, O Lord, was Your instructor, that You should acquire knowledge from him? Who ever were Your counselors, that You should learn wisdom and understanding from them? [Isa 40:13-14]

PATIENTLY

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him…those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the Earth. [Ps 37:7, 9]

My beloved child…My Holy Spirit shows you what an important element patience is in the life and character of My children.  And no where is there a better place for cultivating or displaying patience than in waiting upon God.  If you truly set yourself to wait upon Me, you shall find that it is with Me you are impatient, because I do not at once, or as soon as you could wish, do your bidding.  It is in waiting upon God that your eyes are opened to believe in My wise and Sovereign will, and to see that the sooner and more completely you yield in absolute surrender to it, the more surely My blessing can come to you.  You have as little power to increase or strengthen your spiritual life as you had to originate it:  So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but of God Who shows mercy. [Rom 9:16]  In the power of your sin- enslaved human nature…in reliance upon your human capabilities and capacities; by your own efforts and in your own strength; according to your own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding…you are hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do anything that is good, or pleasing, or acceptable to God.  So then, My child, God’s gift is not a question of human will and human effort, but of My mercy.  It depends not on your own willingness nor on your strenuous exertion as in running a race, but on God having mercy on you.  For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. [Phil 2:13]  Your willing and running, your desire and effort, avail naught…all is “of God Who shows mercy.

**          **, it is not in trying, but in trusting; not in running, but in resting; not in wandering, but in waiting; not in pondering, but in praying; that you find the strength of the Lord.  All the exercises of the spiritual life…your reading and praying, your willing and doing…have their very great value, but they can go no further than this: they point the way and prepare you in humility to look to and depend upon nothing and no one but God alone, and in patience to wait My good time and mercy.  Patient waiting is meant to teach absolute dependence upon God’s mighty working, and lead you in perfect patience to place yourself at My disposal.  “Rest in the Lord…be still before the Lord;” it is resting in the Lord, in My will, My promise, My faithfulness, and My Love, that makes patience easy.  Has not My Divine Son Jesus entreated you, “Come unto Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me…for I am meek and lowly, and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light [Mt 11:28-30]  And your resting in Me is nothing but being silent unto Me, still before Me.  Be still, and know that I AM God.  Have your thoughts and wishes, your fears and hopes, hushed into calm and quiet in that great peace of God which surpasses all understanding.  That peace keeps your heart and mind when you are anxious about anything, because you have made your request known to Me.  The rest, the silence, the stillness, and the patient waiting, all find their strength and joy in My unclouded Presence.

My beloved child, if only you would just fully embrace this deepest desire of My heart…I long far more to bless you than you can ever desire it, but, as the husbandman has long patience until the fruit be ripe, so I bow Myself to your slowness and bear long with you. You need only, then, wait patiently; of each promise and every answer to prayer My Word is true: “I the Lord will hasten it in its time.  “Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him.”  Yes, wait patiently for Me.  You are to seek not only the help or the gift you need; you are to seek God Himself, to wait for Me.  Your patient waiting upon God honors Me greatly.  It willingly acknowledges Me as God on the Throne, giving Me free reign to work in you…both to will and to do, according to My Own gracious purpose.  It yields self wholly into My hands: seeking only to cooperate with My grace; refusing to initiate any activity [David inquired of God: 1 Chron 14:10]; purposing only to respond to every leading and prompting of My Holy Spirit.  It lets God be God in your life.  You are to honor Me and give God the glory due Me by resting in Me, by trusting Me fully, by waiting patiently for Me.  You need only surrender yourself wholly into My loving arms with an unwavering child-like trust, wait patiently upon Me with an unreserved child-like dependence, and set your heart beforehand to obey, and to accept, My will with an unquestioning child-like obedience.  I know full well what you need and when you need it, far more so than you think you know.  “I the Lord will hasten it in its time.

Abba Father…I understand; thank You for making this so clear to me.  You have shown me over the years during our times alone together just to commune, that there are two operating principles out of which I can live my life…the power of the flesh, or the Power of the Spirit.  Those whose lives are under the guidance of the flesh…their sin- enslaved human nature…set their mind on and pursue what that nature desires; but those who live guided by the Holy Spirit set their mind on and seek after what Your Spirit desires.

Whenever I choose to live controlled by the power of my flesh, I live my everyday life in reliance upon my human capabilities and capacities, by my own efforts and in my own strength, according to my own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.  Those who choose to live controlled by the Power of Your Holy Spirit live their everyday life in reliance upon His Divine capabilities and capacities, by His efforts and in His strength, according to His Divine Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding.  Enable me, Father, by the power of Your enabling grace to fully embrace His Divine Power that has given me everything I need for life and godliness through the knowledge of Jesus, the One Who called me by His Own glory and goodness.  Through these, Christ Jesus has given me His Own very great and precious promises, so that through them I may participate in the Divine nature now dwelling within me, and thereby escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. [2 Pet 1:3-4]  Father…I realize that living in the Power of Your Holy Spirit is a life of watching and waiting upon God, looking off unto You and listening for Your voice…for You to place me where I am to be, lead me where I am to go, show me what I am to do to participate in Your work, give me the thoughts I am to think and present, the words to speak or write.  This was the life of Your Divine Son Jesus when He lived on this Earth.  I am to live my everyday life by the example set by Christ Jesus Your Son, Who said, “I only do what My Father shows Me to do; I only speak the words My Father gives Me to speak.

Abba Father, enable me to fully understand so as to diligently avoid this: life in the power of the flesh is characterized by trying rather than by trusting.  It is a life requiring my continual striving and struggling; all of my efforts, redoubled efforts, and strength; all my commitments and resolutions; all my pledges and promises.  Even then… the absolute weakness of my sin-enslaved human nature guarantees I will utterly fail!  A life of trying in the power of my flesh ignores Your Eternal Provision for my living a holy and righteous life: the gift of Your Holy Spirit given to dwell in me, and His eternal Power made available to me.  It disregards Your command to keep on being continually filled with Your Holy Spirit, giving Him free reign over the conduct of my everyday life.

Trying in the power of my flesh to do Your work and Your will presumes that I am fully capable of doing so, and do not need You.  It is an assertion of my self-reliance and self-sufficiency, and that I have no need for dependence upon Your Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding.  It is not well-pleasing to You at all, Father; it is a life of utter failure and spiritual bankruptcy!  Even just trying by my own efforts and in my own strength to live a holy and righteous life is in itself presumptuous…it presumes that I can actually do so, that I can be well-pleasing in Your sight in the power of my sin-enslaved human nature.  The truth of the matter is…apart from You I can do nothing that is good, or pleasing, or acceptable to God!

Father, You have clearly shown me that life in the Power of Your Spirit is characterized by trusting, and not by trying.  It is a life of unwavering child-like trust, prompting me to look to Your Holy Spirit with an unreserved child-like dependence for His leading and guiding, to show me what I am to do and when, so that I may then respond with an unquestioning child-like obedience.  Continually and unceasingly throughout the day and night, my heart needs to breathe in that breath of life that comes from Your Holy Spirit and sustains my spiritual life…just the same as my lungs need, continually and unceasingly, to breathe in that breath of life that comes from the outside air and sustains my physical life!  Trusting implies that I know beyond the shadow of a doubt I cannot satisfy my spiritual needs trying by my own efforts and strength.  Trusting is a conscious decision to live my everyday life in reliance upon the Power of Your indwelling Spirit.  It is an expression of death to self, and absolute reliance upon the sufficiency of God. The only way to live my everyday life in the Power of Your Spirit is to trust You, Father, to do this in me.  With an unwavering child-like trust…I need only wait upon You, look off unto You, listen for Your voice.  You will most assuredly lead me and guide me; You will show me what I am to do and when.  When I hear Your voice, I need only respond and cooperate.  I respond in obedience; I cooperate with the power of Your enabling grace.  Your Spirit is at work in me, working in me both to will and to do.  Please keep me from running off ahead of You, or without You…into a life of utter futility!

Father…I fully realize that the Power of Your enabling grace can not…can never…be manifested and exercised in me by my sin-enslaved human nature!  Only Your Holy Spirit can make Your enabling grace effective in me.  Father…help me to understand, and to fully embrace this truth!  It is Your work, not my work; my place is simply to cooperate and to respond.  I live a life of trust not by trying to do what You show me to do, but by cooperating with Your enabling grace to do so.  I am not to try by my own efforts and in my own strength; I am to cooperate with Your strength, Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, with Your capabilities and capacities.  It is Your work, not mine.

My place in Your work is to attentively and diligently look for the leading and guiding of Your Holy Spirit in everything concerning my everyday life, and to cooperate with the power of His enabling grace to do all that He prompts me to do, or say, or think.  He is the One Who produces fruit in my life; I am simply to be a branch that bears His fruit!  I participate in Your work by making the members of my body and all my faculties available to You as instruments of righteousness, leading to holiness.  I need only offer myself to God as a living sacrifice, a vessel dedicated for Your honor and well-pleasing to You.  This is my spiritual act of true worship.  Abba Father…I understand!  I am just the paint brush in the hand of the Master; the pen in the hand of the Author; the bow in the hand of the Master Violinist.  I am just the instrument of Your Righteousness…a vessel set apart for noble purposes, holy and consecrated to the Master, prepared and ready to be used for Your every good purpose.  This is my life; this is what I live for.  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, Father.  The underlying foundation for my unwavering child-like trust is that in the very depths of my being I have embraced the reality of Your fathomless love for Your child, and Your absolute Sovereignty over all Creation.  Hallelujah!

This is surely the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with You: my waiting upon God…watching and waiting, looking off unto You and listening for Your voice…with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation, for You to reveal Yourself to me ever more deeply and intimately, and Your plans, Your purposes, Your will for me…SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of Your Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.
My soul, wait thou only upon God!  

Friends, brothers and sisters…

There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell.  You must be a born-again child of God.  I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]

If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [
https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”

He walks with me and He talks with me:

Revelation 11:1-19

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

“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.” 

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:
