40 DAY PRAYER JOURNEY
Reflections: Day Five
I made you for Myself, for you to live your life joined together with Me in a Sacred Covenant relationship. The deepest desire of My heart, and your highest privilege as My child, is for us to meet at a certain time every day at our designated trysting place where we can be alone together just to commune and have intimate fellowship. [Father God…Mark 1:35; 6:46; Luke 4:42; Day 187]
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted. For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; in returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. [Lam 3:26; Isa 7:4; Isa 30:15]
My beloved child…if you are to have your whole heart turned toward God, you must have it turned away from your own self, from all that occupies your self-life and self-interests, whether joy or sorrow. Everything that is not God Myself…that excites your fears, or stirs your self-efforts, or makes you conscious of self or the world around you, or awakens your hopes, or makes you glad, or seeks My gifts or workings… hinders you in your perfect waiting upon Me. Even the activity of your mind in studying My Word, or giving expression to its thoughts in prayer, the activities of your heart, with its desires and hopes and fears, may so engage you that you never come to the still waiting upon the All-Glorious One…your whole being prostrate in silence before Me. The very thought of God in My incomprehensible Majesty and Holiness should cause you to cover your mouth in hushed silence before Me: The LORD is in His Holy Temple: let all the Earth keep silence before Him. Hold thy peace at the Presence of the Lord GOD. Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for He is raised up out of His Holy habitation. [Hab 2:20; Zeph 1:7; Zech 2:13]
As long as your waiting upon God is chiefly regarded as an end toward more effectual prayer and the obtaining of your petitions, My child, this spirit of perfect quietness shall never be attained. But when it is seen that your waiting upon God is in itself an unspeakable blessedness, one of the highest forms of fellowship with the Holy One, your adoration of Me in all My Majesty, Glory, and Power will of necessity humble your soul into a holy stillness, making way for Me to speak and reveal Myself to you. Then it comes to the fulfillment of the precious promise that all of self and self-effort shall be humbled; the haughtiness of man shall be brought down, and I alone, the Lord, shall be exalted in that day.
** your name **, you are to take time to be separate from all friends and all duties, all cares and all joys, all self and its energy; time to be still and quiet before God alone. You shall find that this little season of silent worship will bring a peace and a rest that give a blessing not only in prayer, but all the day. The quietness is the confession of your child-like dependence upon God…that you are hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless in your own strength. ALL must be of Me, and apart from Me you can do nothing. It is in the confession of your child-like trust that your God and Father will in My time come to your help…that quiet unruffled child-like rest in Me alone. It is the confession of your desire to sink into your nothingness, and to let Me work and reveal Myself in you. Don’t you understand, precious child? It is not in trying but in trusting; not in running but in resting; not in wandering but in waiting; not in pondering but in praying; that you find the strength of the Lord. In your daily life, you need only let there be in your soul a quiet reverence in its continual waiting for your God and Father to do My wondrous work in you, an abiding watching against too deep engrossment with the things or the people of this world.
My beloved child! Do you not know? Have you never understood? I am the Sovereign All-Ruler over all things, over all Creation…Sovereign over the heavens and all that’s in it, Sovereign over the Earth and all that’s on it, Sovereign over the spirit world and all that’s in it, Sovereign over everything that touches your life. I exercise My Sovereignty perfectly over all things…immediately, completely, and continually over all things; I am not a God Who is careless, complacent, or indifferent. Nothing takes place on the face of this Earth, nothing takes place in the heavens above, nothing takes place in the spirit world, and nothing can touch your life, apart from My having either Personally caused it to happen, or My having specifically, consciously, and deliberately allowed it to happen. And all to accomplish My Own good purpose. All that I do is necessarily the very best, very kindest, most loving thing that can possibly be. And although oftentimes you may not understand…yet, even so, you can trust in My Sovereignty with an unwavering child-like trust. For I make all things work together for your good.
You are My child; I am Your Father and your God. My love for you is unconditional; it is not a response to who you are or what you do. I love you because of Who I AM. My love for you is unfailing. You may fail Me, often do…but I will never fail you. I abide faithful. My love for you is unchanging; I love you today…after all your years of sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections…the same as I did on the day you were born. My love remains the same…yesterday, today, and forever. My love for you is unending; it is eternal and everlasting. It will never perish, spoil, or fade. You can trust in My fathomless love for you with an unwavering child-like trust.
So why do you worry, why do you fret? Why are you anxious, afraid?
Let the words of My Divine Son Jesus to His disciples on their boat that afternoon…when they had lost all hope in the midst of a fierce storm, saying “Don’t you care that we are about to die,”…ring in your own heart: Why are you frightened? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by the cares, concerns, and responsibilities of life. Cast the whole of your care…all your anxieties and distress, all your fears and worries, all your concerns and burdens, once and for all…upon Me, for I care for you affectionately and care about you watchfully.
Why do you become disappointed, discouraged; disheartened, disillusioned over results, outcomes, and conclusions of the work I have given you to do? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by results, outcomes, conclusions. Results belong to Me; it is My work, not yours. And no one can thwart My plans, or hinder My purposes, or override My will.
Why are you downcast, down-trodden, distraught, dismayed, distressed? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by circumstances, events, and things that touch your life. There are no such things as random occurrences, accidental happenings, or incidental incidences. I have either allowed them, or caused them, to touch your life…and for My Own good purposes.
Why do you lament over the past; why are you anguished about the present, and agonize over the future? Do you still have no faith? Yesterday is gone; it is unchangeable, unalterable, irreversible. Remain undaunted by your sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections. I am well able to restore the years the locusts have eaten. Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before you, press on toward the mark for the prize of My high calling in Christ Jesus My Son. And do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Seek first My Kingdom and My Righteousness, and all necessary things will be provided for you as well. As for today, My child…today is the day the Lord has made, so rejoice and be glad in it.
Why are you angry, upset, frustrated, irritated, annoyed? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by what people think or say or do. I, the Lord, am your helper; you needn’t be afraid. What can man do to you? Who shall separate you from the love of Christ My Son? Shall trouble or hardship, distress or persecution, famine, nakedness, danger or sword? No, in all these things you are more than a conqueror through Him Who loved you.
Why do you become impatient, or grow weary of waiting? Do you still have no faith? I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. You are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus My Son to do good works… works that I Myself have planned in advance for you to do. Every day of your life was recorded in My book before you were born…before you ever began to breathe. So be still, and know that I AM your Father and your God.
My beloved child…abide with Me in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence. This is your birth-right as a child of the Most High God. If you will only just abide in My promised rest, you will be continually at rest in an unruffled child-like rest, and you will enjoy being with Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy. ** **, it is unbelief that keeps you from entering into My promised rest, and unbelief prevents you from remaining in My promised rest. No matter how great your pressures and trials, how anxious your thoughts; no matter how hopeless your situation, how clouded your future; no matter how sad your loss, how deep the agony of your soul; no matter how weary or burdened…come to Me, you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest! Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly, gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Abba Father…forgive me for my lack of faith, and enable me by the Power of Your enabling grace to trust in Your absolute Sovereignty over all Creation, and in Your jealous love for Your child. You have placed me like a seal over Your heart, like a seal on Your arm; Your love for me is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns within You like blazing fire, like a mighty flame! Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls…yet will I rejoice in the Lord; I will be joyful in God my Savior! The Sovereign Lord is my strength! You make my feet like hinds feet; You give me strength and courage, enabling me to walk upon my high places…places of trouble and suffering and responsibility! Hallelujah!
Abba Father…my soul glorifies You; my spirit rejoices in my Father and my God! I am Your child, now and forever; may it be unto me according to all You have planned for me! This is surely the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with You: my waiting upon God… watching and waiting, looking off unto You and listening for Your voice… with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation, for You to reveal Yourself to me ever more deeply and intimately, and Your plans, Your purposes, Your will for me…SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of Your Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do. Blessed Holy Spirit…You are the Divine Nature dwelling in me, Whose Power in me continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life:
faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ;
faithfully within the Holy of Holies and the unclouded Presence of my Father in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
My soul, wait thou only upon God!
40 DAY PRAYER JOURNEY
Wednesday, June 8th, was the launch date of our 40 Day Prayer Journey: https://preservechristianfamily.org/category/prayer-journey/
What is it that you are asking the Lord to do for you? What are the specific blessings you are praying for?
Personal revival. Revival begins in one’s own heart. The prayer journey is a consecration of my heart to God, pleading with Him to bring revival, and to begin with me:
- Longing for God…an ever deeper, more intimate, personal relationship with Him.
- Hunger and thirst for personal holiness in my heart, manifested in living out my everyday life.
- Seeking to keep on being continually filled with the Holy Spirit.
This is the entire focus for the prayer journey over these forty days. It is intensely personal in nature, a heart-cry to God to touch my life by His Spirit, and work a deep change in me. You may have this blessed assurance: you will never be the same again!
The hour in worship and prayer each day is not a time for intercession for family members, friends, co-workers, or church family. Do that at another time. If you get lost in intercession for others during this hour of prayer, you will have lost the reason for, and purpose of, this prayer journey. My heart longs to be inflamed with yearning for God alone… to pour out my soul, my life, my all for Him!
Preparation: Following is an example of a format for the daily hour of prayer during the Prayer Journey, to provide guidance on how a participant might effectively approach it. The prayer journey is so intensely personal, however, that within this framework each individual will need to give the Holy Spirit free reign to lead and guide you in the way He alone knows is best for you.

Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Just as God raised up a remnant of just 1% of all the men Gideon had marshaled to fight against the Midianites, even so there is a holy remnant whom God is raising up for Himself in these Last Days…a Godly remnant of the 1% 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. Sadly, we have very few Christian leaders and pastors throughout our Nation who would even qualify by these standards. The few that have done so stand alone and unsupported by their fellow pastors and leaders; they are cowards…afraid to speak out and stand steadfast and immovable with Christ…fearing societies harsh criticism and persecution. Bonhoeffer…renowned Pastor, theologian, and martyr in Nazi Germany…proclaimed: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil; God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Christ Jesus our Lord said quite clearly, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed My teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of My Name, for they do not know the One Who sent Me. [John 15:18-21]
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. Christians across our Nation are called to stand steadfast and immovable with Christ. We are called to pledge our allegiance to the Lamb…to be faithful and true no matter the cost. Jesus said, “When the Son of Man returns, will He find any with unwavering faith on the Earth?” [Luke 18:8] Let it be that we are among those counted part of the remnant that Jesus will turn to and say, “Yes…there is faith.” I especially sense the need as a watchman to warn the people of God to prepare NOW for the severe persecution that will come upon each one of us…to count the cost, and be willing to pay the price, of standing steadfast and immovable with Christ. We must not bow down to the tyrant’s golden image: Our God is able to deliver us from your fiery furnace, O king; but even if He chooses not to…even so, we will not serve your gods or bow down to the golden image you have set before us. [Dan 3:18] We must not shrink back: My righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him. [Heb 10:38] We must not compromise: Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. [Josh 24:15]
End Times Of Biblical Prophesy
Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…7th 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 10/31: Cancel Culture…A Political Prophesy: 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/DIGITAL ID,” 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: A Complete Overhaul of the US Financial System is No Longer a “Conspiracy Theory. It is covertly playing out. For quite a while, we’ve all been discussing different aspects of the Great Reset and the treacherous plan to use the “happy” language of “public good” and “sustainable development” to push through an all-encompassing power grab by the largest institutional investors and the richest people of the world.
- The end result of the power grab would be a fully mechanized society where the citizens’ bodies and minds are invaded by tech, managed by AI, and ultimately serve the financial and emotional interests of the self-appointed mad priests of the “new normal.” (And yes, they are mad, in the fullest sense of Diabolic.)
- To our chagrin, the Great Re-Setters want to control our existence completely. They want to control our diets, our thoughts, and our sexuality. They want to control our feelings and relationships. And most assuredly, they want to control our money. The financial component of the Great Reset is at the foundation of how they hope to get from here to their mechanical dystopia.
- The Financial Aspect of The Great Reset
A core expert on the financial aspects of the Great Reset is Catherine Austin Fitts, who pointed out that the aggressively promoted vaccine passports are connected to the attempted financial restructuring: “If they get the passports [or digital ID’s], we lose our ability to stop the Central Bank Digital Currencies [CBDCs]. So, whatever we do, WE NEED TO STOP THE PASSPORTS/DIGITAL ID’S. The passports give them the kind of control they need of the digital and financial transactions that then leads into the CBDCs.”
The destruction of the traditional Western social fabric and small businesses is intentional, and the purpose of the destruction is to create enough momentum in the form of desperation and impoverishment that when the central banks roll out the new financial system, the citizens will see it as a solution to horrible problems…as opposed to a new system that somebody wanted to roll out from the very beginning.”
- Their desired end result of the financial reform looks like this:
Cash is out.
Banks as we know them are out.
All money is digital and transparent.
Central banks generate digital money at will, as much as they want.
Every citizen has one and only one bank account, which is an account with a central bank.
Money is programmable, and our spending is not free-form, i.e. certain chunks of our money can be assigned for specific purposes, or we can only spend it in certain places, or we may be allowed to only buy certain types of food, etc. etc.
Taxation is easy; censorship is easy; fining people for “bad behavior” [non-conforming to their agenda] is easy…they simply take your money at their own sole discretion out of your bank account.
- For more context, here is the head of the Bank for International Settlements and his notorious speech about programmable currency in which he complains that with cash, they don’t know who is using the money and how…while with CBDCs, central banks will have “absolute control over the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability and also…have the technology to enforce that.”
- I would like to finish this account with words by Catherine Austin Fitts: “If we’re going to get out of this one, we need to just say NO and refuse to go into their box.” THIS IS URGENT! NO BOX for the free people.”
2] 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 4th & 5th one [two in the one dream]. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour.
- Data Dream: Fried circuits in cities crashing; clouds of smoke…like smoke signals. Then continuing on East to Philadelphia,
[4th] under the Liberty bell, and then an explosion. The Liberty Bell cracked in half, the 2 pieces laying on the rounded side on the ground. The intense heat began melting them; they could never be put back together again.
[5th] Circuits reach Capitol Bldg. explode; Capitol Bldg cracked in half. Figure in white [Holy Spirit] standing at podium where Presidents give State of Union address: “A house divided against itself SHALL NOT STAND.” Then He walks to rear exit door, and flips the entire panel of light switches, one by one, until all the lights were out. https://youtu.be/ydpIwdhnucQ
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 https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take 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.
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]
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/, and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
Revelation 4:1-11 [NIV; amplification in italics]
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in Heaven…the doorway opened for the ascension of the raptured saints! And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet, which sounding is the signal by which His elect are to be gathered from the four winds, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this…after the dispensation of this present church-age, represented by the seven selected churches, has run its course and the order of things to which they belong has come to its final conclusion.” At that time, with the summoning of the voice of the archangel, the dead saints shall rise from the dust; the living saints, in a moment…in the twinkling of an eye… are changed; and both together are rapt up far above the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, long before He is seen by the inhabitants of the Earth. Thus will the saints be kept from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who remain…those whose hearts were preoccupied with the things of Earth rather than their heart’s desire a continual longing after a heavenly citizenship. From the safety of their home in Heaven, they will witness the terrible judgment plagues and sorrows inflicted upon the Earth that will take place after their rapture.
At once I was caught up in the Spirit, and there before me was a majestic, awe-filled Throne being set in place in Heaven, marking the beginning of a new dispensation, with someone sitting on it…the Triune God Himself! And the One Who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, insufferably brilliant…as a pure, purple, fiery, red, crystalline, consuming fire…flashing with a blazing light of awesome Glory! A rainbow, standing as the token of God’s covenant with all flesh and resembling an emerald… a soft, beaming emerald of promise and hope…mercy remembered in wrath…salvation over-spanning the appearance of consuming fire… encircled the Throne. Surrounding the Throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders, representing all the thousands upon thousands who have been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, having been gathered out of the tribes and peoples of all the Earth. They were now resurrected and glorified objects of grace, dressed in white…the white robes of the righteousness of the saints…and had crowns of gold on their heads…the crowns of righteousness promised by the Lord…befitting their office as priests and kings in glory. From the Throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder, heralding the wrath and judgment that is about to proceed from it. Before the Throne, seven lamps were blazing forth as torches of fire the flaming indignation of the wrath of God, harbingers of that Day of Judgment in which the Earth will burn as an oven. These are the seven spirits of God in all His plenitude. Also before the Throne there was what looked like a sea of solid, transparent glass, clear as crystal and full of inexpressible beauty and splendor.
In the center, around the Throne, were four living creatures…likewise, along with the elders, representing those redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, having also been gathered out of the tribes and peoples of all the Earth, whose still higher office and distinction is to share the Throne with their Divine Redeemer as His ministers and as executors of His will throughout the unfolding eternal ages…and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle, for the reason that they are the Heavenly powers that guard and cover the camp of the Lord which, under them, the entire world is to become subject. They are those certain preeminent classes of the eclectic resurrection and translation, in the exact position which angels held in other dispensations. Each of the four living creatures had six wings, being angelic, now, as to their form of existence, and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings, denoting their intense intelligence and ability to direct their ways and administrations with unlimited penetration and discretion. Day and night they never stop expressing the Holiness and Glory of the Lord God Almighty, saying:
“Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come!”
Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to Him Who sits on the Throne and Who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him Who sits on the Throne, and worship Him Who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the Throne, giving glory, honor and power to the Almighty maker of Heaven and Earth, and say:
“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for You created all things,
and by Your will they were created
and have their very being!” [Revelation 4:1-11]
Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:
- Revelation 13:16-20
He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark.The mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations. His number is 666.
Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.
First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.
The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.
And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.
Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration. The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit. And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!
- Revelation 14:9-12
A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb! And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever! There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!”This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
- Revelation 14:17-20
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple,“Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
“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.
