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.

PRAYER JOURNEY
Reflections: Day Fifty-three

An unwavering child-like trust is the all-prevailing attitude of my heart. It is the framework out of which everything in my life is determined…every action I take, every response to the things that touch my life, every word I speak, and every thought I think and present.  Everything I am to do is filtered through an unwavering child-like trust in You, Father. [Ps 16:7; 42:8; 143:8; Day 235]  
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.  

FOR INSTRUCTION

Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths.  Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You do I wait all the day. [Ps 25:4-5]

My beloved child…for the right spiritual application of Truth, and for the right personal application of it to your own peculiar circumstances, you need the direct Divine teaching of My Holy Spirit, and the child-like trust that He will indeed give you that teaching.  You must wait upon God for the leading and guiding of My Holy Spirit and not proceed according to your own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, or in accordance with your own will, until hearing from Me.  My Words written in Psalm 25 express your absolute need, and the absolute certainty, of My provision of Divine guidance.  Waiting for guidance, waiting for instruction, habitually looking upwards all the day, not only in special difficulties but in the common course of your everyday life, is a very blessed part of waiting upon God.  I am your Father and your God; you are My beloved child.  I care about every detail of your life, **        **.  I long to have your life at every step in My will and My love, and I desire to keep My guidance entirely in My Own hand.  I well know that you are hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do what is really holy and Heavenly, except as I work it in you by My Holy Spirit, both to will and to do.  Don’t you understand, My child?  My very commands are intended to become promises of what I will most assuredly do in watching over and leading you all the day…if you would only just wait upon Me.

Abba Father…I realize that, in my times of prayer, I need to clearly acknowledge before You my sense of need, my conscious awareness of my ignorance as to what Your way may be.  I trust in You, Father, with an unwavering child-like trust that You will indeed show me the way I am to go…that I will “hear Your voice behind me, saying, this is the way; walk ye in it.”  I empty myself of all my preferences in the matters I bring before You… all of my wishes, desires, or hopes as to what Your answer may be.  I lay aside all my presumptions as to what You will do, and all my purposes as to what I think You should do…until I can sincerely say in my heart, “Father, it no longer matters to me where You place me…whether in serious perplexity, or positions of great difficulty, or in circumstances of great pressure and trial, or how you place me there; whether you place me at all, or when; where You lead me to go or what You show me to do.  That is rather for You to consider than for me.  For in the easiest position, You must still give me Your grace, and in the most difficult, Your grace is more than sufficient.  It is enough for me knowing that You know why You place me where I am, or lead me in the direction You want me to go…whether to do, or to learn, or just, perhaps, to suffer for Your Name’s sake.  It no longer matters to me what I do or what I suffer; all that matters is that You keep my heart lovingly and joyfully joined with Your will.  “My only desire is to just wait quietly before You in prayer, until a deep, restful assurance fills me: My Father will show me the way I am to go; “the meek You will guide in the way.

My child…your absolute surrender to My Divine guidance must be fully embraced in your heart, and will be evidenced by your habitual looking upwards to Me all the day, to walk all the day in the enjoyment of My light and leading.  All that is necessary is a real knowledge and faith in God as the One only source of all Wisdom and Goodness, ever ready to be gracious, to be your life, and to work ALL in you, longing to be to you all that you can possibly ever need or want or desire.  The desire of My loving heart is to pour all of My Blessedness and Goodness into you, to have intimate fellowship with you, and to become ever more one with you, even as We are One with One Another in the Unity of the Blessed Trinity.

**        **, don’t you yet understand?  Your soul is not capable of having any personal contact with God.  It is in your heart I have given My Holy Spirit, to be there to you the Presence and the Power of God working in you.  Only in your heart, wherein I have given My Holy Spirit, are you capable of having personal contact with God…to commune with Me, and experience Me, and come to personally know Me.  You need only present your heart before Me, as that wonderful part of your natural human spirit wherein I have placed My Holy Spirit, where I reveal Myself to you through My Indwelling Spirit.  In all your spiritual life, **        **, it is your heart that must trust and love and worship and obey.  Your soul…wherein resides your mind with its thoughts, your emotions with its feelings, your will with its inclinations…is utterly impotent in creating or maintaining spiritual life within you; your heart must wait in faith and trust upon God for Me to work it in you.

Beloved…what does it mean, “to open your heart before God?”  It means to bow your heart before Me in holy silence…yearning for every indication of My Divine Presence, listening for every revelation of My Divine Will, looking for and expecting the fulfillment of My every Divine Promise, longing to see My Face and to hear My voice.  It is an attitude within your heart wherein…”My heart yearns to linger in Your Presence, Lord, just sitting at Your feet; as the deer pants for water-brooks, so my soul thirsts for You, O Lord; Whom have I in Heaven but You, Lord…and Earth has nothing I desire besides You.

My child…this is the much needed lesson for all who desire to learn truly and fully what waiting on God is: It is with your heart you must wait upon God.   “As a man’s heart is, so he is before God.”  All of your waiting depends upon the state of your heart.  You can advance no further or deeper into the Holy place of My Presence to wait on Me there, than your heart is prepared for it by My Holy Spirit.  Remember always the eternal difference between knowing with your mind and embracing with your heart: you need only give your whole heart, with its secret workings, into My hands continually; in its hidden depths God will work.  I want your heart, My child, and as God I take it, and dwell in it.  Remember My admonition, **          **: “These people come near to Me with their mouth and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me.” [Isa 29:13-14]  Therefore, embrace the Word of the Lord, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” [Matt 6:21]

Abba Father…enable me by the Power of Your enabling grace to embrace this 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 God to reveal to me Your plans, Your purposes, Your will, and a deeper revelation of Who You are…SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.
My soul, wait thou only upon God!  

60 DAY PRAYER JOURNEY

Wednesday, June 8th, was the launch date of our 40 Day Prayer Journey, now continuing for another 20 days:
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…

The following 45 minute video interview with one of the most qualified experts world-wide on the mRNA “vaccines” is well-worth listening to.  If you take heed to what Dr. Bhakdi so clearly reveals, it may well save your life or the lives of your children, grandchildren, family members, friends, neighbors who are still considering taking these shots and/or boosters.

Presentation: Catherine Austin Fitts: Financial Rebellion Episode 13: Guest Sucharit Bhakdi, M.D.  ”What We’re Looking At Is Genocide.”
Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, M.D., shares jaw-dropping information concerning the most lethal drug ever foisted upon the human race.  Why are the COVID vaccines’ lipid nanoparticles toxic poison?  What makes the intent of the situation at hand…these mRNA vaccines… “PURE EVIL?”

Global Reset: Preparation of the Way For the Anti-christ.
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: How Do Tyrants Make People Act Against Their Own Interests?  Tyranny is rearing its ugly head all over the planet.  The tyrants have a rich arsenal of weapons, such as direct violence, destruction of food supply chains, going after the children, blatant deceit, fake “community values,” and the “New Moral.”  We are in a spiritual battle of our life-time, and we are poised to be the heroes we have been waiting for.  

  • The year is 2022.  It’s been two years of bullying.  It’s been two years of being disrespected and deceived.  We are at a crossroads, and the tension is palpable.  There is a war on privacy, on free expression, on human contact, on love, on natural immunity, on medical sovereignty, on bodily autonomy, and even on math, allegedly.  It’s hard to believe it’s real.  We are pinching ourselves every day but the bad dream is not disappearing. 
  • In South Korea…are you ready for this?…they are building an “untact” society, a society with limited physical contact.  “Introduced in 2020, ‘Untact’ is a South Korean government policy that aims to spur economic growth by removing layers of human interaction from society.  Robots brew coffee and bring beverages to tables in cafes.  At Yongin Severance Hospital, Keemi…a 5G-powered disinfection robot… sprays hand sanitizer, checks body temperature, polices social distancing, and even tells people off for not wearing masks …”
    “Seoul City plans to build a ‘metaverse’…a virtual space where users can interact with digital representations of people and objects [the “holograms” of Star Trek]…and avatars of public officials will resolve complaints.
    Several local governments have launched AI call bots to monitor the health of those self-isolating.  Loneliness among elderly people…an already existing problem in South Korea only exacerbated by the pandemic…is also receiving the untact treatment.  The long-term impact of untact on society remains unclear, but Prof Choi believes an untact future is inevitable to increase economic efficiency.”
    In America, the Green Party just went full-on brown, and the FDA is working to intercept international mail containing ivermectin.  The Green Party US Steering Committee issued a Statement supporting “the use of vaccines, vaccine mandates and quarantines as part of a comprehensive public health effort to curb and eradicate the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.” In my hometown of New York, segregation of the “vermin”…the unvaxed…is “normal.  “In Australia…welcome to the “New Normal,” where “Unvaccinated” (i.e., perfectly healthy) people “escape” from pseudo-medical concentration camps [involuntary quarantine camp/prisons] and are hunted down by New Normal Gestapo agents on live television…while those who should be shouting in rage from the rooftops over this travesty cower in silence.
  • Consent Factory
    So we have to accept the fact that it’s happening.  Yes, it’s happening.  It is happening to us and to our children…here and now, bizarrely.  It is not a science fiction movie, not a story about a place far away, a history book…it is here and now.  We are suddenly “that” generation.  We are suddenly the heroes we’ve always wanted to save us.  And it’s nuts…but as insane as it is, the world is still ancient and beautiful, and the choice to push back against bullying is an ancient initiation.  WE ARE HOLDING THE LINE.  
  • Tyranny, Fascism, Domination
    What is that force that wants to control us completely?  Today’s technocratic version of total control goes under the names of the Great Reset and the Fourth Industrial revolution.  It aims to turn us into inanimate and obedient wheels fueling new digital slavery and the fully controlled financial system.  But deep underneath, it is much more than a political force.  It’s a test for the soul.  It’s a force whose cruel predation helps us discover the courage inside us that some of us have almost forgotten.
    How Do Tyrants Make People Comply With Their Agenda? 
  • Physical Violence and Imprisonment
  • Limiting Access to Money or Food.  Today, there is an attack on our land, on our food systems, and on farmers…with the idea of weaning us off our traditional food and selling us the “new normal” food, such as lab-grown proteins, bugs, and other “delicacies” we did not request.  Keep in mind that Bill Gates is the largest private land owner in the U.S. 
  • Going After the Children.  For any aspiring tyrant or invader, it is important to create a chasm between the children and their parents so that the children can be influenced and corrupted.
    What they are doing to the children today may be falsely described in the warm and fuzzy language of “care” and “public health” as opposed to the straight-up language of domination…but abuse is abuse.  The masking of children…against all rhyme and reason… is unconscionable and utterly cruel.  Setting the children against their “vaccine-hesitant” parents and encouraging the children to get the COVID injections without even telling their parents is criminal. 
  • Psychology of Deceit.  Tyrants wouldn’t be tyrants if they were truthful.  “If one is convinced on a sensory level that a healthy person without a mask is a danger, then demanding that other people wear the mask becomes a real emotional need.  The message that one wants to imprint is of totalitarian mask-up.”
    By the way, the entire Fourth Industrial Revolution is an industrial-level project of disconnecting everybody from the real reality and vampiring their energy.  It’s about abolishing human agency. 
  • The “New Moral.”  In addition to the “New Normal,” there is also an implicit “New Moral.”  The “New Moral” is predicated on emotional hunger, a certain degree of suffering, and a great amount of deceit.  All that is necessary is that the dehumanized class [the unvaxxed] arouse the blind indignation and rage necessary to incite a paroxysm of unifying violence against them.
  • “Recruiting” Friends and Family, a.k.a. Collective Trauma.  That one is very painful to many of us.  It’s not very hard to accept the fact that the tyrants are mean.  But when they manage to seduce, corrupt, or scare the people around us, and when the tyrants’ rotten ideas come to us from our loved ones, that hurts. 

The tyrants are deranged, and so why should I care what they think or what their goal is?  They are not qualified to decide my fate or the fate of humanity…and while I wish them their kindest experience with the truth because that is how I sincerely feel about the world, I am not obliged to submit to their abuse or any other abuse.  We are not their slaves.  Hold the line.

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

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]

Behold!  The Lord is about to destroy the Earth and make it a vast wasteland!  He devastates the surface of the Earth and scatters the people.  Priests and lay people, servants and masters, maids and mistresses, buyers and sellers, lenders and borrowers, bankers and debtors…none will be spared.  The Earth will be completely emptied and looted.  The Lord has spoken this word.  The Earth dries up and withers; the world languishes and withers.  Even the greatest people on Earth waste away.  The Earth suffers for the sins of its people; they have disobeyed His laws, violated His statutes, and broken His everlasting covenant.  Therefore a curse consumes the land and the Earth, and they who dwell in it must bear the punishment of their guilt.  Therefore the inhabitants of the land and the Earth are scorched and parched under the curse of God’s wrath, and few people are left.  The wasted city of emptiness and confusion is broken down; every home is locked to keep out intruders.  Mobs gather in the streets, crying out for wine.  Joy has turned to gloom.  Gladness has been banished from the land.  The city is left in ruins, its gates battered down and destroyed.  So will it be on the Earth and among the nations, as when an olive tree is beaten, or as when gleanings are left after the grape harvest.  Terror and traps and snares will be your lot, you people of the Earth!  Those who flee in terror will fall into a trap, and those who escape the trap will be caught in a snare.  Destruction falls like rain from the heavens; the foundations of the Earth shake.  The Earth reels like a drunkard, It trembles like a tent in a storm.  It falls and will not rise again, for the guilt of its rebellion is very heavy.   On that day the Lord will punish the fallen angels in the heavens and the proud rulers of the nations on Earth. [Isa 24:1-6, 10-13, 17-18, 20-21]

End Times Of Biblical Prophesy

Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…2nd 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 9/26: Globalism…An International Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz63njVlmEE

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]  Destruction of America

  • News article: Pastor Andrew Brunson Warns U.S. Christians: Get Ready for Persecution.  The American pastor who was imprisoned for two years in Turkey on false charges is warning Christians in the United States that in an environment of increasing hostility, they need to prepare to face the kind of persecution experienced by fellow believers around the world.  Andrew Brunson, in a column for Decision magazine, confessed that he wasn’t prepared for the horrors he suffered in a Turkish prison.  “I came close to failing, especially during my first year in prison.  At times I was suicidal,” he wrote.  “I was overcome with fear and despair.  I went into relational crisis with God.”  He noted that the gatekeepers of American culture are “increasingly hostile to those who identify clearly with Jesus and His teaching.”  “We need to be careful not to be over-confident,” Brunson cautioned. “I say to you again, it can be more difficult than we think, and God’s faithfulness, His help, His grace, may look different than what we would expect.”  He concluded with a reference to Jesus as the Lion of Judah.  “My brothers and sisters, we are on a perilous journey,” he wrote. “There will be hardship and danger, but the Lion is with us.  At some point, the journey will end, and it will end in victory for the Lion and for those who are on His side.” 
  • News article:‘NOT A GOSPEL AT ALL!’  Evangelist Franklin Graham blasted “progressive Christianity” for waging a war against Biblical Christianity and delivering people eternal damnation.  In a Decision Magazine op-ed, the son of Billy Graham said the false doctrine “has cropped up in the halls of seminaries, infiltrated the pulpits of thousands of churches and been propagated by a godless liberal media.”  Citing the apostle Paul, Graham said the progressive evangelicals are proclaiming a “different gospel” entirely.  “So the real, ultimate danger is that progressive Christianity can send a person to hell.”  “Evangelicals need to guard the truth of genuine Scriptural preaching and living, remaining true and bold about exactly what the Bible clearly teaches,” Graham concluded.  “There is no other way to be saved and secured for all eternity.” 
  • In his on-going deliberate agenda to destroy America’s fossil fuel industry in order to usher in the Great Reset’s “Green New Deal”…News article: Biden admin cancels massive oil and gas lease sale amid record-high gas prices.  Interior Department canceled a 1-million-plus acre oil lease in Alaska as Americans face painfully high prices at the pump.
  • News article: Tucker Carlson: ‘Green’ governance is new ‘guise’ for mercantilism, will lead to global instability: Heritage president.  Americans should beware instability from rising ‘green governance’ Heritage president warns. 
  • News article: World Economic Forum calls to reduce private vehicles by eliminating ‘ownership.’  World Economic Forum says steps need to be taken to reduce reliance on critical metals amid green energy push. 
  • News article: ‘They Are Right on Our Predicted Schedule’: Retired US Generals Issue Warning About New Pandemic Declaration. 
  • News article: New York, San Francisco: Monkeypox threat to public health.  In San Francisco, Mayor London Breed said that the city would declare a local public health emergency that would go into effect on the first of August.  The emergency order goes into effect Monday and must be approved by the board of supervisors within a week.  The move comes as the Biden administration is considering the declaration of a public health emergency over monkeypox in the coming days. 
  • News article: COVID vaccine mandates from Biden admin will cripple National Guard.  Crippling our military over the vaccine mandate is irresponsible.  June 30 marked Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s arbitrary deadline for members of the National Guard and Reserves to receive the COVID-19 vaccine despite Congress’ mandate that the Department of Defense establish uniform procedures under which service members can be exempted.  Should Secretary Austin enforce this mandate on service members who have opted not to get vaccinated due to personal health reasons or religious exemptions, the National Guard will be crippled.  To date, approximately 60,000 National Guard and Reserves remain unvaccinated and the pending decision from the Biden administration could punish the very service members who have been on the front lines of fighting this pandemic. 
  • News article: Biden’s radical SEC agenda uses agency to mandate climate change regulation.  Mandating climate change regulation is part of radical SEC agenda under Biden.  What’s truly shocking is to see another federal agency, with a mandate that is in a completely different hemisphere, attempting to expand its mandate to fight climate change.  Under Biden appointee and former Hillary Clinton adviser Gary Gensler, the SEC is now trying to enact a rule that would saddle public companies with enormous and unnecessary new disclosure requirements related to their carbon and greenhouse emissions.  Sorry, it’s worse than that…the proposed rule would actually require companies to disclose not only their own greenhouse gas emissions, but also those of their entire supply chain…the greenhouse gas emissions of their suppliers, and of their consumers. 
  • News article: Billionaire-funded eco group quietly taking farmland out of production in rural America.  Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen tells Fox News Digital the group’s plans are ‘flatly illegal.’  The American Prairie (AP), a conservation project in Montana, has quietly scooped up more than 450,000 acres of land with the help of its billionaire donors and the federal government. 
  • News article: White House announces sale of additional 20 million barrels of oil from Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  This is Biden administration’s fifth announced sale of oil from Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  Republicans slammed the White House after previous sales from the Strategic Petroleum Reserves after it was made known that millions of barrels were being sent to European and Asian countries, including China.  “The American people deserve answers as to why our emergency energy reserves are being sent to foreign adversaries like the Chinese Communist Party, compromising our energy security and national security.”
  • News article: Food inflation surges over 10%. The new costs for family dinners.  Food-at-home prices increased 12.2% in June.  

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 2nd one.  I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour. 

  • Lady Liberty Dream:  The Statue of Liberty was assaulted and utterly destroyed, never to rise again.  She fought with all her resolve, but was betrayed with 30 pieces of silver.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8d6urGtuogs/

Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…as they are even now…the people of the world learn righteousness.  Though God shows grace to the wicked, even so, they still do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness  they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. [Luke 21:26; Isa 26:10]
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6]  Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.  

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

I love my Country; I grew up here, and worked here, and enjoyed the freedoms we were given here.  Even so…this Country is no longer the Country I grew up in.  It has become something else…something totally different, something strange and foreign to me.  We are a Nation no longer under the rule and Authority of God, and as a result so horribly transformed from what our Founding Fathers envisioned and birthed.  Once a great and respected Christian Nation, God has made us the laughingstock of the world.  This is what the Sovereign Lord said to Moses concerning the Israelites, and our Nation’s founding fathers warned it would apply to America as wellIf you disobey the Lord your God and do not faithfully keep all His commands and laws that I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you in accordance with God’s solemn resolve to punish you as you deserve for disobeying Him. 
Cursed shall you be in the city and
cursed shall you be in the field.

Cursed shall you be when you come in and
cursed shall you be when you go out.
The Lord will send upon you curses…calamitous events such as fires, floods, earthquakes, or pestilence that happen suddenly with a huge loss of life.
He will bring confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking Him. [Deut 15-16, 19-20]
Presented below is what it looks like…utter chaos…when God has determined by His Own Divine Decree to destroy a Nation, as He has America.  Here is what a Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship looks like as it continues to unilaterally shut down, trample over, and shred our every constitutional right that stands in its way.
Make no mistake about it…God Himself has Personally judged our Nation with utter destruction, by His Own Divine Decree.  Man did not do this; God didn’t just allow this to happen, He determined it to happen.  Just as He did not allow Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed, or allow the world to be destroyed by a Great Flood…He Personally caused it.
We are plunging into a deep and very dark abyss in American history, at warp speed!  A new Democrat reign of terror is upon us, utterly obliterating our Constitutional Republic, free speech, free press, political playing field, and our personal liberty!  We need to be fully aware of what is taking place in our Nation in order to know how to be prepared as ministers of the Lord during these End Times.
God has determined by Divine decree that our Nation will be destroyed.  “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat!  Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.”  God has Personally stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22]  He has caused their thinking to become utterly confused…just as He had warned…so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation!  You see it unfolding before your very eyes every day!  The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused. [Deut 28:28]  

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] 

Gather together…yes, unbend yourselves in submission and see if there is no sense of shame and no consciousness of sin left in you, O shameless nation!  The time for repentance is speeding by like chaff whirled before the wind!  Therefore consider, before God’s decree brings forth a curse upon you, before the time to repent is gone like the drifting chaff, before the fierce fury of the Lord comes upon you…yes, before the terrible day of the wrath of the Lord comes upon you!  Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments.  Seek righteousness; seek to do what is right and to live humbly!  Perhaps even yet the Lord will protect you from His anger on that day of destruction! [Zeph 2:1-3]   

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 22:1-21 [NIV; amplification in italics]

Then the angel showed me the river of the Water of Life, immortal and Divine, as clear as crystal, flowing direct from the Eternal Throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of every one of the great streets of the Holy City, solely for the exhaustless pleasure and blessedness of the celestial king-priests who occupy it!  On each side of the river stood the tree of life, a species of tree bearing twelve different crops of fruit, yielding a new variety of its fruit each and every month, again solely for the unmeasured pleasure and blessedness of the immortal glorified saints who reside there!  And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the peoples of the nations that inhabit the Earth below...for the preservation of their health, comfort, and Life-blessedness forever and ever.  No longer will there ever be any penalty or curse resulting from sin and its consequences.  The Throne of God and of the Lamb…a single Throne, shared with His glorified saints as He had promised, which is the seat and center of all the authority and power thenceforward put forth for the regulation and government of human affairs…will be in the City, and they shall reign to the ages of the ages!  And His immortal and glorified servants will serve Him with a universal obedience and a loving devotion; no more sin, no more rebellion, no more forgetfulness or neglect of the claims or Word of the Eternal King.  All life is permeated and transfigured with the most complete and happy accord with the Divine will, which then is done “on Earth as it is in Heaven.”  They will see His Face, and they shall stand continually before Him, and His name will be on their foreheads as a token of their sublime office and consecration, and of an honor and blessedness of the highest degree.  There will be no more night in this celestial home of the Lamb’s Bride.  They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God Himself will give them His glorious, ever abiding, light.  And they will reign for ever and ever, holding dominion over the nations…all people, languages, and nations under the whole Heavenand their kingdom is an everlasting kingdom that will never end!  

The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true.  The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show His servants beforehand the things that must soon take place during the forthcoming administration of His role and reign on Earth, so that they may make proper and diligent preparations for His imminent return, and for their invitation to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”  “Behold, I am coming soon!   Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”

I, John, am the one who heard and saw these wondrous, marvelous, things!  And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me.  But he said to me, “Do not do it!  I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book!  Worship God!”

Then, in solemn and strict command, he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, but rather record them and make them known, because the time is near!  Though the words of this prophecy harden the hearts of the ungodly, and the wicked are only all the more indurated in their wickedness, yet, even so, let it so be; do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book!  Let him who does wrong continue to do all the more wrong; let him who is vile continue to be all the more vile; let him who does right continue to do all the more right; and let him who is holy continue to be all the more holy.  Whatever the results, let it so be; but do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book!

“Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with Me, and I will give to everyone according to, and in proportion to, what he has done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”  “Blessed are those who wash their robes in the cleansing Blood of Jesus, and are careful to maintain their whiteness in constant expectation and readiness, eagerly watching and waiting for their summoning to the Marriage supper of the Lamb to which they have been invited, that in so doing they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the Holy City!  For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.  It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope…the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very Own, eager to do what is good.  Now there is in store for us the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award us on that Day…and not only to us, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.  Outside the Holy City, and sentenced to a living-death for all eternity in the lake of fire, are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”

“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches.  I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”  The Spirit and the Bride, with an intense longing and yearning emanating from the deepest, inmost recesses of their being for the Great Consummation of all things through the coming of Christ, continually say, “Come!”  And let him who hears, in union and in fellowship with the Spirit and the Bride, also continually say, “Come!”  Whoever is thirsty for these Waters of Life, let him also come and join in fellowship with the Spirit and the Bride; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the Water of Life, to be appropriated solely and only by faith in Christ, by seizing hold upon His promises to His church, and by joining the cry of the Spirit, the yearning of the Bride, and the soul of all right hope, in looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God, even the blessed Apocalypse of the Blessed Christ! 

I, Jesus, solemnly warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.  And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this book.”

He who testifies to these things…even the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Himself…solemnly says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
Amen!  Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people.  Amen! [Revelation 22:1-21]  

Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:

  • Revelation 13:16-20
    He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.  He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark.The mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
    This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us.  If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations.  His number is 666.
    Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.
    First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.
    The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.
    And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.
    Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration.  The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit.  And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!  
  • Revelation 14:9-12
    A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb!  And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever!  There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!”This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves
  • Revelation 14:17-20
    Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle.  Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple,“Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.”  The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath.  They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalemin the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon.  The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)!  Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Eartha more detailed account of which is now to follow.   

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

“Mystery Babylon” in the Book of Revelation is America [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.” 

BRACE YOURSELF

Morning by morning He dispenses His justice, and every new day He does not fail.  Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled!  She obeys no one; she accepts no correction!  She does not trust in the Lord; she does not draw near to her God.  Its leaders are like roaring lions hunting for their victims.  Its judges are like ravenous wolves at evening time, who by dawn have left no trace of their prey.  Her prophets are arrogant liars seeking their own gain; they are treacherous men.  Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law.  Even so, the Lord within her is righteous; He does no wrong.  Yet the wicked, without conscience and without shame, persist in doing evil.  I, the Lord, have wiped out many nations, devastating their fortress walls and towers.  Their streets are now deserted; their cities lie in silent ruin.  There are no survivors…none at all.  I thought, Surely they will have reverence for Me now!  Surely they will listen to My warnings and accept My discipline and correction.  Then I won’t need to strike again, destroying their homes nor visit all my punishments upon her.  But no, they get up early to continue their evil deeds!
Therefore earnestly wait for Me, says the Lord, for the day when I rise up to the attack as accuser and judge!  For My decision and determination and right it is to gather the nations together, to assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, even all the heat of My fierce anger; for in that day all the Earth shall be consumed with the fire of My jealous anger! [Zeph 3:1-8]

Wisdom shouts in the streets.  She cries out in the public square.  She calls to the crowds along the main street, to those gathered in front of the city gate: How long, you simpletons, will you insist on being simpleminded?  How long will you mockers relish your mocking?  How long will you fools hate knowledge?  If only you would turn and repent and give heed to my reproof, behold, I will pour out My Spirit upon you, I will make My words known to you.  I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come.  I reached out to you, but you paid no attention.  You ignored My advice, rejected the correction I offered, and would accept none of My reproof.
Therefore I will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic…when your panic comes as a storm and desolation and calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.  When you cry for help, I will not answer.  Though you anxiously search for Me, you will not find Me.  Because you hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord.  You rejected My advice and counsel, and despised all My reproof.  Therefore you shall eat of the fruit of your own way and be satiated with your own devices.  For simpletons turn away from Me…even unto their death.  Fools are destroyed by their own self-confident complacency.  But all who listen to Me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm. [Prov 1:20-33]

We have conveniently chosen to ignore the lessons of God’s judgment of destruction on every great empire throughout history…Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Rome…and now in our present day we have totally forgotten the lessons God has been trying to teach America over the years.  Our godlessness has only and continually escalated through the years; we’ve sinned far worse than our ancestors EVER did!  We are far more wicked than they EVER were!  God has therefore determined by His Own Divine decree to destroy our Nation….and for obvious good reason!  Brothers and sisters…IT IS FINISHED!   

Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath against your enemies has passed.  For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity.  The Earth will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt.  They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21]  How long, Sovereign Lord, Holy and True, until you judge the inhabitants of the Earth and avenge our blood? [Rev 6:10]   
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.  

PREPARE YOURSELF

We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near!  And so, my brothers and sisters, first of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.  They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised?  Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of Creation.”
Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing.  Tell the people, This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it.  Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: The time has come for every prophecy of Mine to be fulfilled!  [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes.  God’s holy remnant is called to a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our Forerunner.  You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for 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.

Holy:
