After the seventy years of captivity [of Jerusalem] are over, I will punish the king of Babylon and his nation for their sins, declares the Lord. I will make the country of the Babylonians a wasteland forever. I will bring upon them all the terrors I have promised in this book…all the penalties prophesied by Jeremiah against all the nations. They themselves will be enslaved by many nations and great kings; I will repay them according to their deeds and the work of their own hands. This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, said to me: “Take from My hand this cup filled to the brim with My anger, and make all the nations to whom I send you drink from it. When they drink it, they will stagger and go mad out of their minds because of the sword I will send among them.” All the kings of the north, near and far, one after the other, and all the kingdoms on the face of the Earth. Every nation on the face of the Earth will have to drink from it. Last of all, the king of Babylonia will drink from it. Then the Lord said to me, Now tell them, This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says: “Drink from this cup of My anger. Get drunk and vomit; fall to rise no more, for I am sending a terrible sword against you.” And if they refuse to accept the cup, tell them, The Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: “You have no choice; You shall surely drink from it!” See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears My Name. Do you think, then, that I should let you go unpunished? No, you will be punished; you will not escape disaster! I am calling down a sword against all the nations of the Earth. I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken! 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. His cry of judgment will reach the ends of the Earth, for the Lord will bring His case against all the nations. He will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword.” I, the Lord, have spoken! This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: “Look! Disaster will fall upon nation after nation! A great whirlwind of fury is rising from the most distant corners of the Earth!” [Jer 25:12-16, 26-32]
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] Vaccine Mandate/Passport: Forerunner of the Mark of the Beast
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: COVID-19 Vaccine Passport Arm Implants: Sweden has wholeheartedly embraced the transhumanist movement, leading technological advances in vaccine passport implants. A Swedish company released a short video demonstrating technology that allows them to implant a computer chip in your hand or arm that can carry your vaccine status. There are many who think it is reminiscent of a sci-fi movie, or possibly forerunner to the “mark of the beast” from the book of Revelations in the Bible. Even so, “It will happen to everybody.”
- Vaccine passports have been dangled like the proverbial carrot in front of a weary public longing to get back to a semblance of normalcy after nearly two years of lockdowns, masking and social distancing. Yet, a recent engineering analysis of the data strongly suggests that the number of deaths from the vaccine now outnumber the number of deaths from the illness. The likelihood that the push for vaccine mandates is meant to protect your health is slim to none…there is another covert and evil agenda afoot.
- The call and cry for vaccine mandates, public masking and vaccine passports continues. As one meme puts it:
“They’re telling the unjabbed to take the jab because the jab works.
And telling the jabbed to get a booster because the jab doesn’t work…
while telling everyone that the unjabbed are putting the jabbed in danger by not getting a jab that didn’t protect the jabbed in the first place.”
- Swedish Company Promoting Implanted Vaccine Passports
On the surface, Swedish company Epicenter is promoting the company’s biochip technology to monitor and track vaccine status, but the future likely holds more. The firm used a short video clip to showcase the implant that can store data and then be read by any device using near field communication (NFC) protocol. The National Post reports that thousands in Sweden [6,000 as of 2021] are having these microchips inserted between their thumbs and index fingers. It’s the same technology that’s been used in pets or packages to track deliveries.
- Vaccine Passports Used to Leverage Hesitancy
The movement to use biochips as vaccine passports, however, has a foundation in discrimination and not convenience. Individuals younger than 20 and those 20 to 49 years were more likely to get the shot when certification was required to access nightclubs, large events, leisure activities and the hospitality sector. In other words, the researchers suggest that using mandatory vaccination could essentially threaten individuals into receiving an injection they do not want just so they will be able to engage in society. Without a vaccination, individuals would no longer be able to access public places, public transportation, and work…and without income and socialization, people would be forced to take the genetic therapy shot.
- Steven Northam, director of U.K.’s BioTeq, the leading human technology implant specialist, predicted: “In 10 to 15 years, microchipped humans will be an everyday occurrence.” Noelle Chesley, associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin, agrees, having told USA Today in 2017, “It will happen to everybody. Maybe not my generation, but certainly that of my kids.”
- Visible and Invisible Tattoos Under Your Skin
An implanted chip is not the only way you might be marked with vaccine information. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology also announced how vaccine certificates may be injected under the skin using quantum dots a few nanometers in size. The technique uses transdermal patches described as being used to “label people” with invisible ink that can store information under the skin. The fluorescent quantum dot tags are applied at the same time as the vaccine injection. The transdermal patch has dissolvable microneedles that co-deliver the light-emitting microparticles and the vaccine. [See my September 22nd posting: https://preservechristianfamily.org/2021/03/10/september-22-2021/]
- Digital IDs Are About Control and Profit, Not Safety
While some see vaccine passports as a convenience and implanted chips as a way of keeping track of their wallet or keys, make no mistake, they are a precursor to a digital ID. Digital passports will ultimately turn you into a slave in a system that profits from surveilling everything you do. The system is funded and will be administered by unelected globalists with the power to cut off at their own discretion your access to money, health care, travel and food.
- In the real world, digital ID systems have proven disastrous for the average person and have resulted in marginalization and even death. For example, a random sampling of 18 villages in India that have implemented compulsory biometric authentication at rationing stations showed that 37% of people were unable to get their food for one reason or another simply due to the malfunctioning of the system. This means only 63% of people found the system convenient and 37% were in danger of disease and death. Imagine relying on a system like this every day of your life for your banking, food, health care and everyday purchases. And that doesn’t even consider its intentional use to force compliance…to anything whatsoever. Future mandated health treatments and vaccinations may result in your absolute loss of freedom.
- Natural Immunity Surpasses Shot-Induced Protection
It is crucial that you take a minute to remember that natural immunity surpasses any vaccine-induced protection. Medical science is proving these vaccines have been useless and irrational.
- Steps to Impede the Threat of Vaccine Mandates and Passports
Investigative reporter James Corbett of The Corbett Report Solution Watch explores how we can thwart the threat of vaccine mandates and passports.

2] Vaccine Mandate/Passport: Forerunner of the Mark of the Beast
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: The Power to Imprison…Life in Pandemicland. Unvaccinated Now Locked in Their Homes. Nov. 19, 2021, the Austrian government announced a new 10-20 day nationwide lockdown. The government also became the first E.U. country to institute mandatory vaccination, giving citizens a Feb. 1, 2022 deadline to get vaccinated. It’s begun…if you’re 12 or over and unvaccinated in this area, you’re only permitted to exit your front door for ‘essential’ work or shopping. All other outdoor leisure activities are forbidden…and it’s heading to your country soon!
- As of midnight November 15, 2021, Austria began yet another nationwide lockdown, ostensibly to rein in rising COVID cases. What makes this lockdown unique is that it only applies to residents aged 12 and older who have declined the experimental COVID jab. An exception is made for unvaccinated individuals who have “recently recovered from COVID-19.” They’re only permitted to exit their front door for “essential” work, “essential” shopping (such as food), quick exercise and getting vaccinated. All other outdoor leisure activities are forbidden. The lockdown will reportedly affect an estimated 2 million of the 8.9 million residents…22.5% of the population. Random spot-checks are prescribed to make sure no healthy unvaccinated people are roaming the streets, and fines for breaking the lockdown order can run as high as €1,450 (approximately $1,640).
- How Do Austrians Feel About It?
“What strikes me most is the class inflection to the whole thing. Well-heeled locals lined up to express their support for the lockdown. There is very little sympathy for a truculent minority that is seen as ‘stupid’ and ‘having brought it on themselves.’
I can’t escape the sense that the motivation is at least partly punitive. They don’t understand people who are not taking the vaccine, they don’t like them, and they are slightly afraid of them…so the simplest thing is to remove them from society altogether.” This is the intended results from the intense global fear-mongering propaganda brainwashing…and it is working.
- Totalitarians Are Ignoring the Will of the People
It’s interesting to note that this latest round of lockdowns comes despite persistent, ongoing public protests. And, as the failures of the COVID shots are becoming increasingly evident, public demonstrations against mandates and lockdowns are gaining speed. In fact, some areas of Europe have regularly held mass protests for well over a year, yet government leaders are flatly ignoring the will of the people and mainstream media refuse to report on these gatherings.
The leader of Austria’s populist FPO party Herbert Kickl branded the government’s mandatory vaccination announcement as ‘unconstitutional’ and said ‘Austria is now a dictatorship.’ He called on the nation’s high court to intervene and block ‘totalitarian’ measures by a government ‘that believes it should think and decide for us.’ We have reached a level with compulsory vaccination that nobody actually thought was possible. We cannot and must not put up with that.” Sound familiar, America?
- Europeans Demand Freedom
Several other European countries are also in turmoil, as their governments ignore the people’s demand for freedom. Germany is reportedly preparing a law to make people work from home again unless they have a “compelling professional reason” to be in the office, in which case they must prove they’ve gotten the COVID jab or show a negative PCR test.
In Belgium, which has a 76% COVID jab rate, government officials have reinforced its COVID restrictions, triggering a protest of at least 35,000 people in central Brussels.
Violence erupted in the Netherlands during an anti-lockdown protest. November 12, 2021, government placed limits on the number of people allowed in each home. Bars, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets all faced a mandatory 8 p.m. closure and “nonessential” shops had to close at 6 p.m.
Nov. 19, seven people were injured when Dutch police used water cannons and fired on anti-lockdown protesters.
People are also fighting for freedom in Italy, where thousands gathered in the Circus Maximus in Rome, November 20, 2021, to protest the Green Pass requirement.
Australia, where some of the most mind-boggling overreaches have occurred in recent weeks, is also fighting back. November 27, 2021, Millions March against Mandatory Vaccination organized protests in 30 cities, including Sydney and Melbourne.
- CDC’s Unconstitutional Quarantine Powers
Around the world, we’re seeing ever-more tyrannical infringement on basic human rights and freedoms. As reported in a New York Times op-ed back in January 2017, there’s reason to be concerned about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s authority to quarantine Americans at will. “The rules outline for the first time how the federal government can restrict interstate travel during a health crisis, and they establish in-house oversight of whether someone should be detained, without providing a clear and direct path to challenge a quarantine order in federal court. The new rules give the C.D.C. significant in-house oversight of the decision to quarantine, with up to three layers of internal agency review. This internal review has no explicit time limit and could easily stretch on for weeks while a healthy person languishes in quarantine.
Fast-forward to the end of October 2021, and CDC director Rochelle Walensky is now on record saying “there’s a plan” to provide unvaccinated workers with “education and counseling,” which sounds an awful lot like sticking people in FEMA re-education [indoctrination] camps…straight out of communist China’s playbook.
- The Founding Father of Lockdowns
In a mid-November 2021 article for Brownstone, Jeffrey Tucker reviews how the idea of nationwide lockdowns in response to an infectious pandemic was born, and whose mind it came from. The plan to quarantine people in their homes and shutter private businesses as a form of pandemic response was invented by a Dr. Rajeev Venkayya, president of the Global Vaccine Business Unit at Takeda Pharmaceuticals and a former head of pandemic policy for the Gates Foundation [of course].
As with almost every revolution in history, a small minority of crazy people with a cause prevailed over the humane rationality of multitudes. The task now is to rebuild a civilized life that is no longer so fragile as to allow insane people to lay waste to all that humanity has worked so hard to build. ~ Jeffrey Tucker
- Hell Unleashed
March 12, 2020, Venkayya’s now 15-year-old plan was put into practice and schools across the U.S. were shut down even though there wasn’t a shred of evidence to suggest educational facilities were hotbeds of viral spread. Indeed, actual science suggested the opposite, that children were not good carriers of infection and didn’t pose a serious threat to adults. As noted by Tucker, what we’re seeing “is not science but ideological fanaticism in play.”
- Psychological Conditions That Allow for Totalitarianism
As explained by psychology professor Mattias Desmet, the reason so many have bought into what are clearly illogical pandemic measures is because enough of us were psychologically weakened to begin with. This in turn allowed for a psychological condition known as “mass formation” to occur. It can be likened to a form of mass hypnosis, as it eliminates people’s critical thinking ability en masse. This also just so happens to be a prerequisite for totalitarianism.
- Mass Formation Gives Rise to Totalitarianism
When these four conditions are fulfilled by a large enough portion of society, they are ripe for mass formation hypnosis… and the rise of totalitarianism. All that’s needed is a “story” in which the cause of the anxiety is “identified,” while simultaneously providing a “strategy” for neutralizing that cause. This explains why so many have bought into a clearly illogical narrative, and why they are willing to participate in the prescribed strategy…“even if it’s utterly absurd,” Desmet says.
Mass formation is a very dangerous condition, especially for those under its spell, but also for everyone who isn’t. The “mental intoxication” that results makes people willing to do things that are clearly wrong and utterly immoral, up to and including voluntarily killing their own families and themselves, if told it’s for the greater good. In short, masses of people become profoundly gullible and self-destructive, which is not a good combination.
- Action Plan
The good news is that understanding the psychology that led us here also gives us the answer for getting out of it. The key strategy, Desmet insists, is to dissent, and to do so loudly. Not violently, but persistently and frequently. We must join together and speak against totalitarianism for two reasons:
1.To give the cowardly majority a sound alternative.
2.Speaking out limits the atrocities a totalitarian regime commits. In a totalitarian system, once dissenting voices are silenced, that’s when the real atrocities are rolled out, against friend and foe alike. We can see signs of this already. The more people comply, the worse it gets.
“Get the shot and you won’t need to wear a mask” became
“you have to wear a mask even if vaccinated,
and, by the way, you’re not fully vaccinated unless you get all the boosters,
oh, and even if everyone’s vaccinated, we may still need to lock down if the caseload goes up,
oh, and you can’t work unless you’re fully jabbed or access medical care.”
It has just gone from bad to worse. In what ungodly universe do people condemn other people to die from treatable medical conditions or bar them from buying food “in order to save lives”? I can think of only one right now, and we’re in it.
If for no other reason than to limit the devaluation and destruction of life that is guaranteed to occur in any totalitarian system, we must never, ever, become silent. What they’re doing is wrong, and it must be stopped. We need to focus on uniting and speaking out against tyranny and the stripping away of our God-given rights and freedoms. https://www.dropbox.com/s/e0t3g3oro7h1sj7/12-03-life-in-pandemicland-pdf.pdf?dl=0
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 and Omicron 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.
4] 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 the dreams 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; following is the 2nd one. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour.
- Lady Liberty Dream: The Statue of Liberty was assaulted and utterly destroyed, never to rise again. She fought with all her resolve, but was betrayed for 30 pieces of silver. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8d6urGtuogs/
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 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.
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]
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 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!
Destruction of America:
- News article: Conservative and Christian Marines say the Pentagon is waging a political purge…refusing to grant religious exemptions to the vaccine mandate. U.S. Marines are being “crushed” over vaccine refusal by President Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate as thousands face dismissal for their continued refusal to get the shot, several active-duty Marines told Fox News Digital. Zero religious exemptions for the COVID-19 vaccine have been granted to date, Marine Corps spokesman says.
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.
[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]
Men’s hearts are failing them for fear…as is now happening, terrified at what they see coming upon the Earth: for the Powers of Heaven shall be shaken. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your head, because your redemption is drawing near. This is all the more urgent, because you know that the time has come for you to wake up from your slumber. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing! God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work He began when you first believed! [Luke 21:26, 28; Rom 13:11-12]
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. Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One Who is speaking to you even now. For if the Israelites did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the Earthly messenger, who warned and divinely instructed them, revealing with heavenly warnings God’s will, how much less shall you escape if you reject the One Who warns and admonishes you from Heaven! When God spoke from Mount Sinai His voice shook the Earth, but now He makes another promise: “Once again I will shake not only the Earth but the heavens also.” This means that all of Creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us then be thankful and please God; worship Him with holy fear and awe. For our God is indeed a consuming fire! [Isa 26:10; Heb 12:25-29]
Lord God Almighty…I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy and unfailing love, for You have seen my affliction and You care about the anguish of my soul. You are my Strength and my Shield; I trust You with all my heart. You always help me, and my heart is filled with joy; I burst out in songs of thanksgiving! O Lord, You are my unyielding Strength, and You are the Stronghold of salvation to me, Your anointed. Save your people and bless your inheritance in these perilous times, Sovereign Lord; lead us like a shepherd, and carry us in Your arms forever! [Ps 28:7-9; 31:7]
Lord God Almighty, show the wonder of Your great love, You who save by Your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings.
Beloved…I am the One Who comforts you. Why should you fear mere mortal man, who soon withers like the grass and disappears? Have you forgotten the Lord your Maker, Who stretched out the heavens and their starry hosts, and laid the foundations of the Earth? Why should you live in constant terror because of the wrath of those who oppress you, who have set out to destroy you? Their fury can no longer touch you! [Ps 17:7-8; Isa 51:12-13]
Lord God Almighty, You led me to a place of safety; You rescued me because You delight in me, Your child. Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; You will answer me from Your holy Heaven with the saving strength of Your right hand. Some boast in chariots and some in horses, but I will boast in the Name of the Lord, my God! [Ps 18:18 Ps 20:6-7]
Beloved…you are My Own dear child…a child of the Most High God…and have overcome the agents of evil in this world, because the Holy Spirit Who abides in you is infinitely more powerful than the devil, who is at work in the world. Every child born of God continually overcomes the world. Beloved…faith is the power that overcomes and conquers the world! [Father God…1 John 4:4; 5:4]
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]
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:
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple, “Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow. [Revelation 14:17-20]
The nations were angry; and Your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding Your servants the prophets and Your saints and those who reverence Your Name, both small and great…and for destroying those who destroy the Earth. Then God’s Temple in Heaven was opened, and within His Temple was seen the ark of His covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm, heralding the forthcoming release of all the hidden powers of eternity about to show themselves in active Earthward administrations.
And I saw in Heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels out of God’s Temple in Heaven with the seven last plagues…last, because with them God’s wrath is completed; last, because these angels are like the priests who pour out the drink-offerings of wine over the sacrifice before it is slain and consumed. And I saw another vision…what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire…a vast sea with its fiery waves of just judgments about to be poured out upon the Earth…and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the Beast and his image and over the number of his name. They held harps given them by God, and in sublime adoration of their mighty Deliverer sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb…just as the children of Israel once did on the further side of the Red Sea following God’s judgment of their pursuing oppressors in that sea:
“Great and marvelous are Your deeds,
Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are Your ways,
King of the ages.
Who will not fear You, O Lord,
and bring glory to Your Name?
For You alone are Holy.
All nations will come and worship before You,
for Your righteous acts have been revealed.”
After this I looked and in Heaven the Temple, that is, the Tabernacle of the Testimony…the Holy of holies…was opened. Out of the Temple…from the inmost depth of God’s Holiness…came the seven priest-angels with the seven last plagues. They were dressed in clean, shining linen and wore golden sashes around their chests befitting the priestly administration they were given to now perform: the offering of a great sacrifice to the offended holiness and justice of God. Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven priest-angels seven golden bowls…priestly censers used for holding the fire when incense is burned…filled with the wrath of God, Who lives for ever and ever, to be poured upon the sacrifice preparatory to its oblation and final consumption. And the Temple was filled with smoke from the awe-filled Glory of God and from His Almighty consuming Power, and no one could enter the Temple until the seven plagues of the seven priest-angels were completed! [Revelation 15:1-8]
Following are several additional 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.
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.
