How true is the ancient saying, Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat!“Those whom God is determined to destroy, he first infatuates.” Webster’s dictionary definition of infatuates is as follows: To weaken the intellectual powers of; to affect with folly; to make a fool of. God purposefully strikes a person’s mind with idiocy, so that they have the mental acuity of less than a three year old in all their counsels and measures.
Abba Father…the leaders of our Nation have rejected Your reproof and have rejected Your counsel continually throughout the years. They thought their own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding was superior to Yours; they thought they were so wise in their own eyes. And so now in Your most severe judgment, those whom God is determined to destroy, he first infatuates. You have 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] [This Scripture perfectly describes those who think of themselves as “woke.” They like to refer to themselves by the slang word “woke” because it just sounds so much better to them than to be referred to as “moron” they in reality are.] You have caused their thinking to become utterly confused, so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation. You have caused the Nation’s leaders to engage in self-destruction; we are destroying our own selves…just as You caused the Midianites to fight against and kill one another before Gideon. We are now watching it unfold as it plays out day after day before our very eyes!
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. 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! [Deut 28:28; Zeph 3:8]
End Times Of Biblical Prophesy
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: Dr. David Jeremiah.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
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
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: More Children Have Died From COVID Shot Than From COVID. Children and core community services have been massively impacted by shot programs. Although there is little reason to give children the shot, officials are spinning the idea that it is needed for herd immunity. The truth is, more children have died from the shot than from the illness. This agenda they have…whatever it is…is not about herd immunity.
- Many scientists and health experts have warned that vaccinating children against COVID-19 is unnecessary and extremely risky. Since the beginning of the pandemic, it has been obvious that children were at exceptionally low risk for hospitalization and death from the infection. Despite this, massive efforts are underway to ensure that every child gets a shot. If the current data from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) are any indication of what the future holds, we are facing the greatest public health calamity in modern history. I believe it is not a new COVID-19 variant causing this, but the current vaccination campaign. Unfortunately, I have no doubt that the deaths caused by the vaccines will end up far exceeding the number of deaths from the illness.
- Despite the clear and present dangers of this genetic therapy, vaccine makers, encouraged and endorsed by government health agencies, are steamrolling ahead with trials and recommendations for the shot in children. In May 2021 parents found out that their children can get vaccinated without their consent if they fall under something called the “mature minor” doctrine. This allows providers to treat minors, without parental consent, under certain circumstances. In September 2021, The Guardian reported that children aged 12 to 15 in the U.K. may be administered a COVID-19 shot by teams in the school system without parental consent.
- Agency Data Show 173% More Children Died From Shot Than Virus
With each passing month, it becomes more obvious that the battleground in the fight for liberty and freedom has been taken to our young children. A recent review of data from the CDC and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows that more children [as well as adults] have died from the vaccine than have died from the illness. Equally staggering, beyond imagination, are the massive number of children and adults who have experienced serious, debilitating, and life-altering permanent injury as a result of being vaccinated with this dangerous and deadly mRNA gene therapy. In this short heart-wrenching [embedded] video [see link below], you’ll hear just several of the stories of parents who are grieving the loss of their children after giving them a vaccine they were promised would protect them. There is also a heart-wrenching personal testimony from an airline pilot who shared that the vaccine stole his career and his future. He spent all his savings to pay his subsequent medical bills, and his family “is on the verge of losing everything we have.”
- Experts Are Using Herd Immunity Reasoning to Convince Parents
Since children have little reason to get the COVID shot, health officials are spinning the idea that they should be vaccinated for the sake of herd immunity, and also that children could be asymptomatic carriers and supposedly silently spreading a deadly disease to Grandma’s house. What they aren’t telling you, and the media is not covering, are the studies that show children are NOT driving the pandemic, and in fact appear less likely to transmit COVID-19 than adults…particularly those younger than 10 years old.
If an assumption is made that these individuals…Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention…do understand the science that doesn’t support vaccinating children, and they have at least glanced at the VAERS data collected by the CDC and FDA, then you must ask the question: What is the underlying goal of vaccinating children with a potentially lethal and disabling shot when they have an exceedingly low risk of severe COVID-19 or dying from the illness in the first place?https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2021/12/21/more-children-died-from-vaccine-than-from-covid.aspx?ui=af0bbbc50b29ff2b92fa2ce0b86d9a54940ff9b06ef3774a859e9cb7ecd7de08&sd=20210830&cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art2ReadMore&cid=20211221&mid=DM1071380&rid=1357103115
2] Vaccine Mandate/Vaccine Passport: Forerunner of mark of the Beast
Brethren…if you have never read any of these postings, YOU NEED TO READ THIS ONE. Presentation: Dr. Mercola: Catherine Austin Fitts: THE ONLY CHOICE LEFT: SLAVERY OR FREEDOM. After discovering what a criminal enterprise Washington and the major media was, she saw through the COVID fraud early…and has a critical health and financial warning for anyone who has an immediate family member considering getting the jab.
- The Injection Fraud
One of the most egregious crimes of this pandemic is the mandating of these experimental COVID jabs while simultaneously giving the drug companies full immunity. They’re not liable for anything, no matter how many people are injured or die. A person can be forced into taking this injection and suffer permanent disability requiring millions of dollars of care, and the patient is responsible for all these costs, even though they were coerced into it. It’s incredible, because employers and universities are just flat out lying to people, whether it’s about the adverse events and the potential risks, or about what the law is. I dare any employer who is trying to say that they’re mandating this when they’re still under emergency use authorization to produce a document from government…whether legislation, law or regulation…that says they have a basis in law to do this. As far as I know, OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] has not published anything yet.
- Is There Conspiracy Blackmail Going On?
While I believe many employers and school administrators are simply ignorant and have fallen victim to the most successful propaganda campaign in modern history, Austin Fitts suspects they know exactly what they’re doing. “I don’t think it’s the propaganda,” she says. “I think they’re under terrible pressure from both the government and banks. I think there’s RICO [Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act] conspiracy blackmail going on behind the scenes. I think they do understand it. And, I think they’re being seriously threatened through the banking system. If you look at the strongest pressure we’re seeing, it’s coming from the central bankers and the financial side. And, I dare say, I believe it’s connected to why the central bankers are pushing so hard. I think these guys are really depending on the smart grid and creepy technology to help them go to the last steps of financial control, which is what I think they’re pushing for.” I’ve spent a lot of time with the Doctors for COVID Ethics over the last year, learning about what those doctors and scientists know, what’s in this [COVID shot] and what it does. There’s a whole portion of the ingredients in these mRNA vaccines that we still don’t know what they are.
- Only One Choice Remains: Slavery or Freedom
To prevent the final implementation of this planned control system, we must be ready and willing to sacrifice in the short term. Everyone must be willing to say, “No, I will not comply, no matter what the consequence, whether if you take away my pension, if you fire me, if you discredit me and I can never work again in my profession.” That’s what it’s going to take to keep even our most basic freedoms.
If they get the passports, then I would argue, as a practical matter, we lose our ability to stop the Central Bank Digital Currencies [CBDCs]. So, whatever we do, we need to stop the passports. The passports give them the kind of control they need of the digital and financial transactions that then leads into the CBDCs.
“It is slavery or freedom. If you look at what they’re planning, what they’re shooting for, it’s a complete financial and technological control grid. That is slavery. I mean, when the World Economic Forum says it’s 2030 and you have NO ASSETS, what is it about that that’s not clear? You have no assets means you’re a slave.” Complete control is: You’re on a smart grid that’s under 24/7 surveillance and subjects you to all sorts of propaganda and mind control, and they have the power to literally turn off your money if you don’t behave. That can be managed with software, AI and a smart grid [through the vaccine passport and CBDC]. I would describe it as a slavery system. They can literally collateralize a human being and connect it to the banking system, and they can stop all violent revolution once they have everybody basically digitized and on a financial transaction control system.
Now at present the financial coup d’etat is being consolidated, where the central bankers just serve jurisdiction over the treasury and the tax money. And if they can get the passports in with the CBDC [central bank digital currency], then it will be able to take taxes out of our accounts and take our assets as well. So, this is a real coup d’etat, and that’s why if you look broadly at the population, we are the guys who are building the prison. We also have the power to stop.
- Why We Must Reject Vaccine Passports
I suspect CBDCs are the crux of this plot. While government does not control private keys and decentralized elements, they still have plenty of ways to get to the private data of targeted individuals. “I’ve watched lots of people get subpoenas and have the FBI arrive at their door, and it’s amazing what they will hand over and go along with,” Austin Fitts says. In short, government’s ability to deliver on a threat when they want something from you is profound, which makes it near-impossible to resist.
“I want to mention one thing though, because the important thing, our danger point, is not CBDCs. CBDCs will take them quite a while to figure out. Our danger point is the Vaccine Passports. If they get the passports, then I would argue, as a practical matter, we lose our ability to stop the CBDCs. So, whatever we do, we need to stop the passports. The passports give them the kind of control they need of the digital and financial transactions that then leads into the CBDCs.”
- Vaccine Passport Is a Ticket to Financial Enslavement
As explained by Austin Fitts, the vaccine passports create a platform for a digital transaction system that documents and tracks all transactions. Once combined with a central bank controlled digital currency, they will have the ability to block transactions. If government doesn’t want you to purchase anything more than five miles from your home, they have the ability to prevent you from doing so. If they don’t want you buying pizzas, they have the ability to prevent you from buying pizza. “So, it’s Step 1 to building that control grid. If you go to solari.com and click on Cash Friday…which is a campaign we’re doing to get everybody to use cash on Fridays…you’ll see a 56-second video of the general manager of the Bank of International Settlements explaining how with CBDC, they’ll have the ability to enforce all the rules they want to create about CBDCs and your money.
It’s very chilling and it communicates the control they think they’re going to have when this is over. But to get that control, first you need the entire passport system to come into being. That’s basically the information grid that the CBDCs can then plug into. If you get a passport system in place that can literally stop your financial transactions unless you get another booster, imagine, with CBDCs, it can stop ALL your transactions. It can change the amount of money. It can take money out of your bank account. In other words, it’s no longer a currency. It’s a credit that the company stores…and the company controls everything.
The passports are now. We need to stop these now. I’ve seen passport apps that show people getting eight or more boosters. Who’s going to worry about CBDCs if you’ve had two of these injections and eight boosters? I mean, the question is, are you going to be alive at that point? I don’t know.”
- What Can You Do Now?
So, how can the average person resist this diabolical plan? One strategy would be to move to a state or country that has made vaccine passport requirements illegal. Another strategy is to simply refuse the passport, no matter what the ramifications. This goes for those who have gotten one or two COVID jabs as well. To maintain a valid passport, you’ll have to take all of the endless boosters. How many are you willing to take? How many times are you willing to risk your health and life? At some point, you’ll have to make the same decision as everyone who is unvaccinated…freedom or slavery.
“I discovered there was a whole community of people who did RV living because they just didn’t trust any jurisdiction. They wanted the ability to get up and go, and that group has been growing steadily. So, my feeling is we have to say no, and we have to do whatever we can do. I went through that decision process during the [government] litigation because I was absolutely convinced that if I kept saying no, chances were very high I could be killed. I was poisoned on many occasions, so I dealt with some pretty severe harassment.
All I can tell you is that saying no turned out to be the smartest thing I ever did. I’m not saying that isn’t difficult. It’s exceptionally inconvenient. I went from being a very wealthy person to having to live through periods of intense poverty. It was pretty gruesome. But at the same time, you come out the other end and it’s a great life. It’s just a great life to be free. I don’t think there’s any way to get to a free and inspired life other than hurtling into it. You have to say no. And if we don’t say no, we’re going to be slaves. Frankly, I’D RATHER BE DEAD THAN TAKE THESE INJECTIONS. God alone knows what’s in them.”
- There Is No Legal Vaccine Mandate in the US
Recently, Joe Biden issued an unconstitutional presidential directive that companies with 100 employees or more are required to mandate the COVID injection for all staff members. The penalty can go as high as $700,000 per incident. Such stiff fines could quickly bankrupt all but the wealthiest companies if they don’t comply. However, even here, there is choice, because as it stands, there is no LEGAL rule or law dictating vaccination rules for private companies. “This is genocide,” Austin Fitts says. “There is no OSHA temporary emergency rule. There is no document. If I’m a company and you have no law, no regulation, no emergency regulation…you can’t legislate law by press conference, and you can’t apply civil money penalties out of thin air.
I don’t know on what basis in law you can apply a civil money penalty to a violation of a non-existent law and a non-existent rule. Now, I’m not saying you can’t find a judge and threaten him and scare him into going along with that. But I have to tell you, if there’s anything worth litigating, it’s that.
So, to me, I can’t think of anything better to litigate than whether or not we’re going to have law. If everything is just the rule of the mafia, there will be no companies. We no longer have an economy. We no longer have a stock market. There will be no financial system. We no longer have a country. We no longer have a civilization. We just have a mob, right? It’s all gone. And a lot of us are going to die. https://www.dropbox.com/s/z61re5bysrqb5dd/10-31-catherine-austin-fitts-slavery-or-freedom-pdf.pdf?dl=0
3] Destruction of America
There were 5 chilling prophetic dreams posted by Pastor Dana Cornerstone that portrayed the utter destruction of America. I have been writing about this nearly every day for 18 months already, and so they are not really prophesy, they are a confirmation of the Holy Spirit of what is already taking place!
I am going to post one dream each day for the next 5 days. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events are unfolding even at this very hour.
- Lincoln Dream: Abraham Lincoln was hanged by Uncle Sam, who was forced to do so by the ruling government powers. Then Uncle Sam died as well…of a broken heart.
In the dream, God had this to say:
To Lincoln: They didn’t have any idea what they were doing, and now the Nation needs to brace itself for what they deserve. This is a symbolic representation…an allegory…of what has taken place with the death of America, God’s imminent judgment of wrath He is about to pour out upon this Nation, and warning to His people to “anchor your soul.”
To Uncle Sam: Rest in peace, Uncle Sam. Sorry you had to see the ship go down.
To the Nation: Brace yourself for fire and ice, and don’t forget to anchor your soul. https://youtu.be/_GB2dEHrHlo/
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.
Destruction of America
- Brethren…you need to watch this Pastor Dana prophetic dream concerning ominous events that will take place during December, and January. We see all of these things being foreshadowed even now in our everyday news…
Baltic Dry Index dead…no movement of goods, no global trade; ships anchored in ports, nothing moving at sea;
people standing for hours on long food lines;
Nationwide power outages;
people being housed in shelters;
market crashes and yields lost;
Great sadness throughout the land; people seemed very dazed and very confused;
Depression as a creature, choking people, pushing them down;
God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation:
- Perhaps God is now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid, or severe food shortages resulting from cargo ships stranded unloaded in our harbors…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
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 placeso 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.
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.”
[Ezekiel 14:12-23: excerpts from Matthew Henry’s Commentary] National sins bring National judgments. When virtue is ruined and laid waste every thing else will soon be ruined and laid waste too: When the land sins against Me, when vice and wickedness become epidemical, when the land sins by trespassing grievously, when the sinners have become very numerous and their sins very heinous, when gross impieties and immoralities universally prevail [as has long since been the case now in our own Nation; we have way out-sinned Sodom and Gomorrah], then will I stretch forth My hand upon it, for the punishment of it. The Divine Power shall be vigorously and openly exerted; the judgments shall be extended and stretched forth to all the corners of the land, to all the concerns and interests of the nation. Grievous sins bring grievous plagues.
God has a variety of sore judgments wherewith to punish sinful nations, and He has them all at command and inflicts which He pleases. Pestilence, a dreadful disease, which has sometimes depopulated cities…by it God pours out His fury in blood (that is, in death); the pestilence kills as effectually as if the blood were shed by the sword, for it is poisoned by the disease, the sickness we call it. See how miserable the case of mankind is that lies thus exposed to deaths in various shapes. See how dangerous the case of sinners is against whom God has so many ways of fighting, so that, though they escape one judgment, God has another waiting for them.
Even so, in the places that are most corrupt, and in the ages that are most degenerate, there is a remnant which God reserves to Himself, and which still hold fast their integrity and stand fair for the honour of delivering the land, as the innocent are said to do [Job 22:30] However, when the sin of a people has come to its height, and the Divine decree has gone forth for their ruin, the piety and prayers of the best men shall not prevail with God to end the controversy. 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.
Son of man, when a land sins against Me by committing a trespass, and I stretch out My hand against it and break its staff of bread and send famine upon it and cut off from it man and beast…or suppose I were to pour out my fury by sending a plague into the land, and the disease killed people and animals alike. As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were there, they wouldn’t be able to save their own sons or daughters! They alone would be saved by their own righteousness. When My judgments come upon the Earth…when I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or when I command locusts to devour the land [as happened last year in Kenya] or when I send a plague among my people [as is happening even now worldwide]…the people of the world learn righteousness. [Ezek 14:13, 19, 20; Isa 26:10]
This is what the Lord says: I brought hunger to every city and famine to every town. But still you would not return to Me! I kept the rain from falling when your crops needed it the most. I sent rain on one town but withheld it from another. Rain fell on one field, while another field withered away. People staggered from town to town looking for water, but there was never enough. But still you would not return to Me! I struck your farms and vineyards with blight and mildew. Locusts devoured all your fig and olive trees. But still you would not return to Me! I sent plagues on you like the plagues I sent on Egypt long ago. I killed your young men in war and led all your horses away. The stench of death filled the air! But still you would not return to Me! I destroyed some of your cities, as I destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Those of you who survived were like charred sticks pulled from a fire. But still you would not return to me!
Therefore, I will bring upon you all the disasters I have announced. Prepare to meet your God in judgment, O My people! For the Lord is the One Who shaped the mountains, stirs up the winds, and reveals His thoughts to mankind. He turns the light of dawn into darkness and treads on the heights of the Earth. The Lord God of Heaven’s Armies is His Name! [Amos 4:6-13]
Lord, you are searching for honesty. You struck Your people, but they paid no attention. You crushed them, but they refused to be corrected. They are determined, with faces set like stone; they have refused to repent and return to You. Then I said, Surely these are only the poor; they are sinfully foolish and have no understanding, for they know not the way of the Lord… the just and righteous law of their God. So I will go and speak to their leaders. Surely they know the ways of the Lord and understand God’s laws. But I found the very reverse to be true; these had likewise all alike broken the yoke of God’s law and had burst the bonds of obedience to Him! [Jer 5:3-5]
Gather together…yes, unbend yourselves in submission and see if there is no sense of shame and no consciousness of sin left in you, O shameless nation! The time for repentance is speeding by like chaff whirled before the wind! Therefore consider, before God’s decree brings forth a curse upon you, before the time to repent is gone like the drifting chaff, before the fierce fury of the Lord comes upon you…yes, before the terrible day of the wrath of the Lord comes upon you! Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments. Seek righteousness; seek to do what is right and to live humbly! Perhaps even yet the Lord will protect you from His anger on that day of destruction! [Zeph 2:1-3]
That is why the Lord says: Turn to Me now, while there is still time. Give Me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Rend your hearts in your grief, and not your garments! Return to the Lord your God, for He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. Who knows? Perhaps He will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. [Joel 2:12-14]
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:
The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star…the leader and prince from among the fallen angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation…Satan himself, the Devil…that had fallen from the sky-regions of Heaven to the Earth. And because of the wickedness of the world, and because people rejected the Lordship of Christ for the lordship of Satan, God, in judgment, granted special powers to the lord of their choice with which to more fully exercise his evil and malignant will. The fallen star was therefore given the key to the shaft of the Abyss…that dark and horrible prison in which many of the fallen spirits are detained, and many, many strange and evil and malignant beings are shut up…to do with it as he pleased. Nor did Satan fail to use this power anymore than he failed to exert his full liberty against Job. When he opened the Abyss, unlocking the door of separation between Earth and hell, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. He invoked a plague, such as the world has never before experienced, and out of the smoke a species of supernatural, infernal, locusts came down upon the Earth and were given the power of a poisonous sting, like that of scorpions of the Earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the Earth or any plant or tree, but were only permitted freedom to horrify and torment those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man, being perhaps the most intense and most painful that any living being can inflict upon the human body. During those days of unfathomable torment men will fervently seek death, but will not be permitted to find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them, and they will be forced to endure a living hell in which they will suffer with unimaginable intensity without reprieve, day and night!
The locusts of hell looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They are supernatural beings that had tails and stings like earthly scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people, inflicting their torment by means of stings, like the stings of scorpions, for five months. They had as king over them, one of Satan’s appointed angels…the angel of the Abyss…whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon, both meaning ” destroyer.”
The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come!
The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of the golden altar that is before God, accustomed to crying out for mercy, now crying out for judgment against the crimes of despite and rejection of the atoning Blood of the Son of God committed against it. It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates”… the very locality where the powers of evil first initiated their assault against the human race! And the four angels who had been kept bound during all the preceding ages, held prisoners so as to be ready for this very hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. They at once rushed forth for slaughter, in-breathed with the spirit of death and destruction, putting into execution their murderous and malignant will. Under their command, the number of infernal horses with riders comprising the evil horde of mounted troops dispatched in dreadful assault against mankind was two hundred million. I heard their number.
The horses and their mounted riders…the rider was not a separate being but rather part of this supernatural, infernal horse of hell…I saw in my vision looked like this: their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur…the very elements of hell itself…that came out of their mouths. The power of the horses was in the sooty, sulfurous, fiery breath that issued from their mouths to burn people alive and to suffocate, and in their tails; for their tails were serpentine, like snakes, powerful and capable of inflicting painful and disabling whip-like lashes, and having heads with which they bite and sting; and with both capacities they inflict severe injury.
The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues spanning a day and hour longer than 13 dreadful, horror-filled, months still, even then, did not repent of the work of their hands; even then they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood…idols that cannot see or hear or walk! Instead of fearing, loving and trusting in God above all things, they bestowed their loving confidence upon unclean spirits, constructing images of them to facilitate their worship, invoking them for guidance, and placing religious dependence in their impious falsities. Nor did they repent, even then, of their murders and all forms of sin against human life, their magic arts and indulgent use of drugs and other sensual stimulants, their sexual immorality and general subversion of the sacred ordinance of marriage and its laws, or their thefts, dishonesty, and abject disregard of other’s rights! [We see all of these evils unfolding even now before our very eyes in our Nation, heralding the far greater intensity of these evils yet to come!] [Revelation 9:1-21]
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 alsocalled in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple,“Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (160 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
“Mystery Babylon” in the Book of Revelation is America [Rev 17:5], 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.”
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!
Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath against your enemies has passed. For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity. The Earth will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt. They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21] How long, Sovereign Lord, Holy and True, until you judge the inhabitants of the Earth and avenge our blood? [Rev 6:10]
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near! And so, my brothers and sisters, first of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of Creation.”
Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing. Tell the people, This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it. Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: The time has come for every prophecy of Mine to be fulfilled! [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. God’s holy remnant is called to a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our Forerunner. You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anyone & all others, and for anything & all else this world has to offer. 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
Behold, 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.
