Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Wednesday, June 8th, was the launch date of our 40 Day Prayer Journey. The 40 days ended on July 17th. The Holy Spirit, however, has prompted me to continue our prayer journey for another 20 days…until Day Sixty. I invite you to continue on our prayer journey along with me.
Reflections: Day Forty-eight
Trust Me with an unwavering child-like trust that in all things I allow to touch your life, My indwelling Spirit will indeed intervene in those affairs to Personally do whatever is beyond your human capabilities and capacities to do, in accordance with My Own plans, purposes, and will. [Father God…Josh 6:1-20; 2 Kings 18:17-19:35; Day 230]
Your Divine Son Jesus explained to the Samaritan woman at the well, “The time is coming, and is already here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.” [John 4:23] True worshipers such as You seek, Father, will worship You in Spirit and Truth. The only act of true worship is embracing in my heart, and manifesting continually and unceasingly in living out my every day life: NOT MY WILL, BUT THY WILL BE DONE…IN EVERYTHING. And how do I manifest this true worship in living out my life? By living out my every day life in a manner that bears witness for all to see to the truth of what I claim to believe…that in everything my life literally expresses an unwavering child-like trust in You, an unreserved child-like dependence upon you, and an unquestioning child-like obedience to do Your will and accept Your will. The confirmation of Your Holy Spirit within me will be my unruffled child-like rest in You, and an unclouded child-like carefree joy in Your Presence.
TO KNOW HIS GOODNESS
The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Oh how great is Thy goodness, which Thou hast laid up for them that bow before Thee in holy reverence, with an awe-filled regard and with the utmost reverence and respect; which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before the sons of men! O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him! [Lam 3:25-26; Ps 31:19; Ps 34:8]
My beloved child…here is now the true and only way of entering into and rejoicing in the goodness of God…waiting upon Me. The Lord is Good, and as you persevere in waiting before Me…for all those souls who do wait…it will be seen as true. The truly waiting ones will all be enabled to say, “The Lord is good to them that wait for Him.” If you long to fully experience the goodness of God, you need only just give yourself more than ever to a life of waiting upon Me.
Oftentimes in your waiting upon Me, ** **, you are seeking only My gifts. I, the Divine Giver, long rather to give Myself and to satisfy your soul with My Goodness alone. I am all the time seeking to win the heart of My child for Myself, such that long before any gift is given…and even if it never comes…you are all the time acknowledging My Goodness in a continual worship of faith, continually adoring Me and trusting My Goodness. It is good that My child should quietly wait; “The Lord is good to them that wait for Him.”
Child of God! What a blessed life your life of waiting then becomes…your continual worship of faith, adoring Me and trusting My Goodness! As your soul learns its secret, every act or exercise of waiting just becomes a quiet entering into the Goodness of God, to let Me do My blessed work in you and satisfy your every need. Instead of taking refuge in Me only in times of trouble or need, there comes a great longing in the depths of your soul to wait continually upon Me all the day. And however duties and engagements occupy your time and your mind, your soul gets more familiar with the secret art of always waiting. Waiting with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation, becomes the habit and disposition…the very second nature and breath…of your soul.
Abba Father, when I am engaged in the work of the day…the responsibilities I have during my daily physical life…I am physically separated from my wife, my children, my family…and may well yearn for, and long for, the work of the day to be over so I may be back together with them. But in the spiritual realm, I am NEVER separated from You, Father; You are always with me…in everything I am thinking, saying, and doing! I am NEVER apart from You. What I may well yearn for and long for…what my heart may pine away and be homesick for…is for the responsibilities of the day to be over so I may be ALONE together with You, Father, in our trysting place, just to commune with You…to be ALONE together with You, Blessed Jesus, just sitting at Your feet. That is what my heart yearns for, and longs for…pines away and is homesick for. And that is also the desire of Your Own heart, Father…that Your child would just come to You, climb up on Your lap, curl up in Your arms, and rest my weary head against Your bosom…as You embrace me, kiss me, and hold me close to Your bosom. That melts a Father’s heart, because that is a child’s way of expressing absolute trust, absolute dependence, unquestioning obedience; it is all that a Father would ever need or want or desire of His child. The blessedness of our being alone together is made crystal clear in what Your Divine Son Jesus said to Martha as Mary, her sister, was just sitting at His feet listening to Him: “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” [Luke 10:41-42] He also sternly reproved the church at Ephesus in His letter to them concerning their diligent and tireless work: Yet I hold this against you; you have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. [Rev 2:4-5]
Precious child…yes, waiting upon God is not merely one among a number of the Christ-like virtues of My children, to be thought of from time to time. Rather, it expresses that very habit and disposition of your soul which embraces your birth-right of abiding with Me in the Holy of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of My unclouded Presence. It gives a higher value and a new power to your prayer and worship, to your faith and surrender, to your unbroken enjoyment of the Goodness of God, because it links you, in unalterable child-like dependence, to Myself…your God and Father. What your relationship with Me needs is more of your personal intimate experience of Me. You get too much knowledge about God from the teaching of men, and too little knowledge of God through personal experience of just being alone together with Me! You are oftentimes much too occupied with your work, whether ministry or secular, and thus the very work you are engaged in separates you from a deeper, more intimate personal relationship with God. The truth is, the more work engaging you, the more need of your waiting upon God! Then the doing of My will, instead of exhausting, would be your meet and drink, your nourishment and refreshment and strength!
** **! Don’t you know? Have you never fully understood? I brought you into existence for Myself; I made you for Myself…to abide with Me in the Holy of Holies all the days of your life on Earth and then together with Me in Heaven for all eternity. I designed all the delicate, inner parts of your body and knit them together in your mother’s womb! I was there while you were being formed in utter seclusion! I carefully watched over you all the days before you were born, and scheduled each day of your life before you ever began to breathe! Every day of your life was already recorded in My book, before you were born! Beloved child of God! You entirely fulfill My purpose in creating you by coming away with Me to our chosen trysting place faithfully every day, where we can spend some time alone together just to commune. The most intense desire of My heart is that you would look forward with an unclouded child-like carefree joy to spending this time together with Me. It is there during our times together where I reveal Myself ever more deeply to you, and show you the wonderful rich eternal treasures of the spiritual realm you could never otherwise come to know.
Abba Father…You have made this so clear to me as a child in Your Royal Family: Your Eternal Purpose for calling me into a Sacred Covenant relationship with Yourself is…first of all…to spend time alone together with You, just to commune with You…just to behold You face to Face, and to commune with You face to Face, as a man speaks with his friend. In our time alone together, You reveal Yourself to me ever more deeply, ever more intimately…and You reveal to me something of the rich eternal treasures of the spiritual realm that can only be known as Your Holy Spirit illuminates my mind to these truths. During our times together, Your Holy Spirit leads me and guides me…takes me wherever He pleases. Most of the time, Father, I come to our trysting place with no agenda for our communing together; sometimes I have specific situations I need to bring before You and inquire about. Even so, my one only and overriding agenda is to continually and personally experience You, the One True Living God, ever more deeply, ever more intimately, as we spend time alone together in our Sacred Covenant relationship…and to continually and personally experience Your Divine Son Jesus, Whom You have sent…the Christ; the Anointed One; the Messiah. This is Eternal Life…living my everyday life in that relationship, a life of relationship that will go on for all eternity! This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent. [John 17:3] And throughout all eternity, I will never plumb the depths of God! Incredible!; Astounding! You created me for Yourself; You created me that we would spend time alone together, just to commune. Your purpose for our communing together is, first of all, relationship…not to give me work assignments for the day. That is secondary…when You do reveal Your plans, purposes, and will for me.
Is that so difficult to understand, precious child? Your new life is hidden now with Christ My Son in Me. So continually set your heart upon the rich eternal treasures that are above, in the Heavenly realms, where Christ Jesus My Son is seated at My right hand. Beloved child…continually set your mind and your thoughts on the things of Heaven and the spiritual realm, not on the things of Earth and the physical realm. For you died in union with Christ My Son, and have been raised up together with Him into newness of life. Your new life is hidden now with Christ Jesus in Me,
** **. When Christ, Who is your life, appears, then you also shall appear with Him in glory. Have you never embraced His Divine Power that has given you everything you need for life and godliness through the knowledge of the One Who called you by His Own glory and goodness? Through these He has given you His Own very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the Divine nature now dwelling within you, and thereby escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
My beloved child…this is what the Lord says, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you what is best for you, Who directs you in the way you should go. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk ye in it.” I, the Lord, will guide you always; I will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land, and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail!
Abba Father…I praise You, the One Who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me! My soul waits for You, Father…more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning! Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I trust in You with an unwavering child-like trust! I know, Father, that my life is not my own; it is not for me to direct my steps. The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who listens to counsel is wise. There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. Show me the way I should go, Father, for to You I lift up my soul. For You have brought me into existence not to do my own will and purpose, but to do the will and purpose of my God Who created me. Hallelujah!
Abba Father…I praise You for the eternal gift of Your Holy Spirit, given to abide in me. He is ALWAYS with me…never never to leave me, never ever to forsake me, assuredly not. My body is the very temple…the dwelling place…of Your Holy Spirit. Through Your Holy Spirit, I am joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship; He is the connecting link. And…All those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons/daughters of God. For the Spirit which I have now received is not a spirit of slavery to put me once more in bondage to fear, but I have received the Spirit of adoption as God’s Own child. And by Him I cry, “Abba, Father!” The Holy Spirit Himself testifies together with my own human spirit, assuring me that I am indeed God’s child! [Rom 8:14-16] Continually and unceasingly day and night…in everything that I do or say or think…I need to breathe in that breath of life that comes from Your Holy Spirit and sustains my spiritual life, just the same as my lungs, continually and unceasingly, need to breathe in that breath of life that comes from the outside air and sustains my physical life.
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!
60 DAY PRAYER JOURNEY
Wednesday, June 8th, was the launch date of our 40 Day Prayer Journey, now continuing for another 20 days:
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…
God is calling you, and desires to anoint you, to be part of His holy remnant. Whether you are a pastor, a Christian leader, or a member of the congregation…this is what the Lord says: To the pastors I have placed in charge of My churches concerning your congregation and each individual member, write: This is the last call. I have wooed you so many times. This time, I say to you, in great love…there is a cost to an anointing; this is not a light, frivolous matter. The anointing is not cheap. If you say in your heart, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it,” if you pay the cost of the anointing, I’ll open doors for you, I’ll speak through you, and I’ll use you again like you have never conceived. The church and any members of the congregation embracing My call will move in the Power of My Holy Spirit, and bring great glory to God! The time of being pumped up is over. I am tired of your solemn assembly’s, I’m tired of your sacrifices…they’re not from the heart. Don’t miss what God is about to do. The time has come; I need you, and I love you…but if you ignore this trumpet call…if you say in your heart, “We will not listen,” I am going to remove your anointing. You’re not going to have anything to say to anybody; you’re going to be dry. You are going into the desert…I will love you there, and I will keep you in My care, but you can’t go with Me, and I won’t go with you.
Beloved child of God…let My Holy Spirit open your heart, and say from the depths of your being, “God, once again, use Your church; use Your child. Now…not another time…tonight, let something in my heart respond to Your call.”
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. God’s holy remnant is called to a life of self-sacrifice and self-denial. You cannot become My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own. Obedience is what characterizes the life of My child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night. You are called to a life of obedience. Obedience is better than sacrifice; rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as evil as worshiping idols. [1 Sam 15:22,23]
Brethren…here is something I have been warning about EVERY DAY for the past 20 months already!
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: Did Rockefeller Foundation “Predict” [read that as, “privy to the plans to orchestrate”] the Future Food Shortages Two Years Ago? It was called “Reset the Table” and it’s all about the upcoming food shortages, including how they plan to wipe out the meat industry in favor of fake foods.
- It seems nothing escapes the “prophetic minds” of the self-proclaimed designers of the future. They accurately foresee “natural disasters” and foretell coincidental “acts of God.” They seem to know everything before it happens. Strange, don’t you think? The reality is that they’re simply describing the inevitable outcomes of their own deliberate and results-oriented actions. Right now, we’re told looming food shortages are primarily the result of “climate change” and the “Russia-Ukraine conflict.” Yet, back in July 2020, The Rockefeller Foundation had already predicted it, and was calling for a revamp back then of the food system as a whole to address it.
- ‘Reset the Table’ Is Part of The Great Reset
The document in question, titled “Reset the Table: Meeting the Moment to Transform the U.S. Food System,” published by The Rockefeller Foundation July 28, 2020, describes how the COVID pandemic had caused “a hunger and nutrition crisis” in the U.S. “unlike any this country has seen in generations.” Mind you, COVID was declared a pandemic March 11, 2020, so by the time this Rockefeller report was published, the pandemic had only existed for four months. According to The Rockefeller Foundation, the pandemic revealed “deep problems” in the U.S. food system that need to be “reset.” “Reset the Table” was published just one month [“coincidentally”] after the World Economic Forum (WEF) officially announced its plans for a “Great Reset,” and many of the contributors to the Foundation’s paper are WEF members.
- Problem, Reaction, Solution
The Rockefeller Foundation played a major role in seeding and scaling “The Green Revolution. If you’ve looked into the WEF’s Great Reset plan, you’ll notice that “Reset the Table” is just another cog in a wheel that is intended to run us over. The document is very much framed in the Hegelian dialectic of problem, reaction, solution. Here is the problem that they have created (COVID) and now they want to implement their solution (Transforming the global food supply). Naturally this all ties into lands being destroyed, climate change, and trying to move people back into smart cities.
- How They Intend to Seize Control of the Supply Chain
“Reset the Table” basically describes how they intend to seize control of the food supply and the supply chain under the guise of “equity,” “fairness” and “environmental protection.” Sound familiar?
One key to this enterprise is data collection. They want to collect data on everyone’s spending and eating habits. Expanding broadband access is part of that. “Forty-two million Americans lack broadband access that is essential to shifts to online enrollment, online purchasing of food, etc. As you can see from these paragraphs alone, they want everything to shift into an online environment, including education, medicine and the buying of food. This, of course, makes everything you do far easier to monitor and track.
Another key is to make sure global WEF partners in multiple sectors work in tandem to form a “collaborative advocacy movement.”
A third key to success is the end goal to centralize control of the food supply into a single executive office, which is right in line with the idea of a “one world government.”
- What’s Their Definition of ‘Healthy Diet’?
The WEF has, for years, promoted the idea that insects should be recognized as a healthy, sustainable protein alternative that can “save the environment” and “solve world hunger.” As for the “healthy and protective diets” the Foundation is calling for, we’ve already been told what that is. For the past several years, the WEF has been promoting the idea that we should get used to eating weeds and bugs and drinking reclaimed sewage. [Except, of course, for them.] For years, the WEF has also promoted the idea that lab-grown animal foods and genetically engineered crops are the only way to “feed the world” and “save the planet.”
- Destruction Is Their Agenda
For 2 years COVID was the focus of attention…Stage 1 of their diabolic Agenda 2030.
Stage II…the total and utter destruction of the food supply…now seems to be well under way. This is all too evident especially when [outright lying, propaganda] “Fact Checkers” are having to “debunk” the unprecedented number of [“purely coincidental”] fires at food processing plants within the last year. Added to this is the [strange] culling of herds of cattle in Kansas (as many as 10,000), which is being attributed to “high temperatures and drought.” Farmers refute this; it looks far more sinister.
- It’s Inevitable Because It’s an Intentional Plan
Time and again, the WEF and its global collaborators have “predicted” the future with stunning accuracy, sometimes years in advance, and then when the predictions come true they pretend as though they had nothing to do with it. Make no mistake, however…they truly believe they have the right to decide the fate of the world, and that you and I have no say in the matter.
- The Great Reset: Preparation Of The Way For The Anti-christ
Our opinions and preferences are theirs to shape, and they fully intend to do so…or at least attempt to…using the most powerful social engineering technologies that ever existed. And, if we do not wake up to their plans and resist, we’ve made the choice to accept their version of the future…a future in which we’ll all be living in smart multiplexes where there’s no private spaces, no private ownership, and everything you do is recorded, tracked and punished or rewarded according to some social credit algorithm that determines what they have decided it means to be a “good little boy or girl” citizen.
- At present, all data point to severe food shortages, and while the looming shortages are blamed on everything from climate change and COVID to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the fact is that WEF allies, such as the Rockefeller Foundation, have published documents and held fictional exercises, in advance, detailing everything we’re currently witnessing. Their playbook has already been written. There’s no doubt that food shortages and famine are coming. It’s inevitable because it’s intentional. The same goes for energy shortages. They’re intent on bringing us into the “green new deal” (as it’s part of The Great Reset) even though large-scale alternatives to oil, gas and nuclear power are nonexistent.
- Prepare for the Inevitable
If something is inevitable, it would behoove you to prepare for it. Remember, The Great Reset includes a re-imagined food system that doesn’t rely on livestock or require a large land footprint. They intend/orchestrate for the current food system to fall apart, so they can then “solve” the problem by introducing a “new system” based on patented lab-grown synthetic and genetically engineered foods and massive insect farms.
- The only way out of this intentional chaos is to
a) become more self-sufficient in the short-term, and
b) create alternative parallel food systems locally, outside of the globalists’ control, for more long-term independence.
Right now, you’d be wise to address your own short-term food security and safety. Here are some basic suggestions; refer to the following link:
Brethren…Shall a trumpet be blown in the city and the people not be alarmed and tremble? Shall disaster or evil come to a city and the Lord has not caused it? Surely the Lord God will do nothing without warning you through His servants the prophets. I, the Sovereign LORD, have now done this. [Amos 3:6-7]
Brethren, we are moving at warp speed world-wide toward the GLOBAL RESET with its one world government and one world financial system, in preparation of the way for the coming rule and reign of the Anti-christ. We are watching it unfold across the globe…there is NOT ONE nation that was once a democracy where their citizens are now being stripped of their basic freedoms and rights, America included.
Beloved…be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. Be alertly waiting for your master’s return from the wedding feast, so you may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those whom the master finds ready when he comes. You also, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect! [Jesus…Luke 12:35-37, 40]
End Times Of Biblical Prophesy
Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…6th 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 10/24: End Times People…A Biographical Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
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] Destruction of America
There were 5 chilling prophetic dreams posted by Pastor Dana Cornerstone that portrayed the utter destruction of America. I have been writing about this nearly every day for 18 months already, and so they are not really prophesy, they are a confirmation of the Holy Spirit of what is already taking place!
I am going to post one dream each day for the next 5 days. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events are unfolding even at this very hour.
- Lincoln Dream: Abraham Lincoln was hanged by Uncle Sam, who was forced to do so by the ruling government powers. Then Uncle Sam died as well…of a broken heart.
In the dream, God had this to say:
To Lincoln: They didn’t have any Idea what they were doing, and now the Nation needs to brace itself for what they deserve.This is a symbolic representation…an allegory…of what has taken place with the death of America, God’s imminent judgment of wrath He is about to pour out upon this Nation, and warning to His people to “anchor your soul.”
To Uncle Sam: Rest in peace, Uncle Sam. Sorry you had to see the ship go down.
To the Nation: Brace yourself for fire and ice, and don’t forget to anchor your soul. https://youtu.be/_GB2dEHrHlo/
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 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.”
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.”
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:
Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:
- Revelation 13:16-20
He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark. The mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations. His number is 666.
Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.
First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.
The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.
And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.
Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration. The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit. And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!
- Revelation 14:9-12
A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb! And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever! There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!” This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
- Revelation 14:17-20
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he alsocalled in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple, “Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (160 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
“Mystery Babylon” in the Book of Revelation is America [Rev 17:5], and the prophesy written by John is the utter destruction of America. We are the End Times Nation, the 7th and last of the great world powers throughout history that God has determined to utterly destroy. Six have already been destroyed: Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, and Rome. The destruction of America will now usher in the Great Tribulation and the Anti-christ. America has stood in the way of the Anti-christ, and now God, by His Own Divine Decree, has removed and destroyed our Nation…for obvious good reason…and to usher in the End Times of Biblical prophecy.
These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. [1 Cor 10:11; Rom 15:4] For the time has arrived for judgment, and it must begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the Gospel of God? Since judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News! If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners? Behold, since the uncompromisingly righteous are rewarded on Earth, one can be certain that the wicked and the sinner will also receive what they deserve. [1 Peter 4:17-18; Prov 11:31]
See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears My Name; why, then, would you think you will escape punishment? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all the inhabitants of the Earth, declares the Lord Almighty. Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them:
The Lord will roar from on high; He will thunder from His holy dwelling and roar mightily against His land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on the Earth. The tumult will resound to the ends of the Earth, for the Lord will bring charges against the nations; He will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword, declares the Lord. This is what the Lord Almighty says: Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the Earth. [Jer 25:29-32]
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.
