Brothers and sisters in Christ…
For those who had been wholeheartedly engaged in our Prayer Journey, it will now become for you a launching pad…if it hasn’t done so already…into experiencing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon your life. That will be the focus of our 31 day Journey of Faith. Please note: the start date has been moved forward to August 17th, and ending on September 16th.
Prepare Your Heart
God is Love. My Eternal Reason for creating you is Love. From Eternity past, I have known you by name, and I have loved you with an everlasting Love.
I made you for Myself, in My Own image and likeness, Divinely crafted with the capabilities and capacity to be joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship…a living union of oneness…the very crown jewels of My Creation, and that, as a mirror of the Almighty, you would reflect My Glory to the created universe. My purpose for bringing you into existence, and the chief end of Humankind, is this…
- to freely accept My Eternal Purpose in creating you by entering into a Sacred Covenant relationship with Me that mirrors the Relationship We in the Triune Godhead have with One Another in our Blessed Holy Trinity;
- To abide in Me with an unruffled child-like rest, and abide with Me in an unclouded child-like carefree joy…throughout all the days of your life on Earth, and thereafter with Me in Heaven for all eternity.
My deepest longing is to adopt you into My Own Family as a child of the Most High God, joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship…a living union of oneness.
- God the Father is your Father; you are to be My child…the apple of My eye.
- God the Son…Christ Jesus…is your spiritual Husband; you are to be the spiritual bride of Christ.
- God the Holy Spirit is your Master; you are to be His servant…a bond-slave of the Most High God.
The Blood of My Divine Son Jesus was poured out on your behalf, making available to you forgiveness of your sins and restoration of your relationship with God that had been severed by sin, thereby opening up for you the way into this Sacred Covenant relationship with Me.
Entrance into a Sacred Covenant relationship with Me is freely given to whomsoever will embrace the truth of Christ Jesus, Divine Son of God…confidently putting your trust in His atoning sacrifice on the cross, and making a solemn vow before Me in giving yourself to be the spiritual bride of Christ in a sacred and divine spiritual marriage.
At that moment of your betrothal, the Blood of My Divine Son Jesus cleanses you of all your sins, and confers upon you the judicial status of eternal righteousness before Me. The Power of the Most High overshadows you, causing a new life to be conceived in you, and born anew into the spiritual realm by means of God the Father through the Holy Spirit. I Myself am your Father; you bear My spiritual DNA in your soul.
By virtue of being a newborn child in My Family…the Family of God…access into the Holy of Holies of Heaven becomes your birth-right, both now during your lifetime on Earth, and thereafter for all eternity in Heaven.
My Holy Spirit enables you to enter into the Holy of Holies and My unclouded Presence, and to abide there with Me continually and unceasingly in spiritual reality all the days of your life, until death of your body brings you to be physically together with Christ My Son in Heaven for all eternity. Hallelujah!
Brothers and sisters…living in the Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit is the entire focus of the 31 day Journey of Faith into the Holy of Holies. 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, whereby I will experience an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon my life, according to the Lord’s command, “Keep on continually being filled with the Spirit.” I look forward to experiencing the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in my life… singing songs, hymns, and spiritual songs and making melody in my heart to God. I look forward to experiencing prayer, in accordance with God’s will, moving the hand of God, and experiencing the blessings that come from obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit in my life. God will indeed show me His Glory; I will see it with my own eyes, and I will have occasion to testify to His great Name and mighty Power! Hallelujah!
The hour in worship and prayer each day is not a time of 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 Journey of Faith.
My heart longs to be inflamed with yearning for God alone…to pour out my soul, my life, my all for Him!
I plan to send out 31 reflections addressing different aspects of waiting upon God during the 31 days of our Journey of Faith. I trust in the Lord they will be a blessing to you!
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let this cry of your heart echo through the depths of your soul:
Let the Earth, and all that’s in it, Shout for joy to the LORD! I worship You, LORD, with gladness; I come before You with joyful songs! I Know that You alone, LORD, are God! You are the One Who made me, and I am Yours; we are Your people, the sheep of Your pasture. I enter Your gates with thanksgiving, Lord; I come into Your courts with praise! I thank You, and I praise Your holy name! For You, O LORD, are Good, and Your love endures forever; Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations. Hallelujah! [Ps 100]
First of all, before all else: Enter His gates with thanksgiving; come into His courts with praise!:
As long as I have breath, I will praise You Lord;
Relentless Destruction of America: Preparing the Way for the Anti-christ:
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
The following presentation is absolutely mind-boggling…you need to read this, get hold of this, and brace yourself to stand against this sword in our midst that is methodically, relentlessly, ruthlessly, destroying our children.
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: Parents Beware: The Technocratic Elite Are After Your Children. Psychological obedience training is being used to control the global population, from Cradle to Grave. If you’re a parent, beware; be vigilant…these government-endorsed predators want to shape and mold your children’s minds. They’ve got the tools to do it, too, including programming that relabels and changes words to alter perception of reality. They are building prison walls around you using your own money.
- The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (HR 3684) grants control over what and when you drive to the transportation system. It will control the type of vehicle you can use and when you can drive. It will control the vehicle-to-grid 5G technology and its kill switches (which will be built in). The bill also includes an integrated payment system and a per-mile driving fee. READ THAT AGAIN, BRETHREN! THIS WAS SIGNED INTO LAW IN NOVEMBER 2021!
- The effort to control you starts from birth. Social emotional learning (SEL) is a programming effort that uses the relabeling and changing of words to alter perception of reality and mold children’s beliefs and behaviors into obedient and clueless serfs.
- Companies are collecting and analyzing your child’s personal data to build their “social credit” score. In addition to demographics and grades, the data collection also includes behavioral information, such as scientific, financial, cultural and civic literacy, and competencies such as critical thinking skills, problem solving, creativity, communication and collaboration, plus character qualities such as curiosity, initiative, persistence, grit, adaptability, leadership, social and cultural awareness.
- Unless we refuse to comply or participate, our social credit scores and climate scores will soon dictate everything we can and cannot do in life.
- What the Infrastructure Bill Is Actually Funding
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (HR 3684) was passed by Congress and signed by President Biden in November 2021. This $1.2 trillion spending bill includes a number of questionable and outright nefarious allocations. Importantly, this bill grants control over what and when you drive to the transportation system. It will control the type of vehicle you can use and when you can drive. It will control the vehicle-to-grid 5G technology and its kill switches (which will be built in). The bill also includes an integrated payment system and a per-mile driving fee. Twenty-seven pilot programs are also listed that will given them even more control over your transportation in the future.
- Social Emotional Learning [SEL]: literal, outright Programming
The Department of Education was created in 1979, and ever since then, they’ve been building up to Common Core, building in all these Marxist agendas, and pulling in Critical Race Theory (CRT). It’s a psychological agenda. It’s not a single curriculum. This is about ideologies and behaviors and thought processes; it is obedience training and conditioning that starts in preschool, and it’s embedded in every aspect of teaching throughout the day. So, it’s a whole mind control system.
- They’re creating what the World Economic Forum (WEF) likes to refer to as digital citizens, for the future workforce, and so they’re bringing in all this ed-tech and doing massive data mining. We have statewide longitudinal data systems that are now tracking behavior. They are molding the children, they’re building their social scores…and then they’re bringing it to, and embedding it into, parents. They’re saying we need to teach the parents too, so the parents can “help train” [brainwash] the kids. And they’re bringing it into businesses. This is a major psychological obedience training designed to lead to AI [Artificial Intelligence]. BRETHREN…READ THAT AGAIN!
- Their agenda is that we will interact more with artificial intelligence. The use of robotics [and] bioengineering to augment human functioning is already well underway and will advance. Projected to emerge after 2030, there is a new demography of technologies, robotics, genetic engineering, nanotechnology, producing robots, engineered organisms, nanobots, and artificial intelligence that can self replicate. Debates will grow on the implications of an impending reality of human-designed life [as opposed to God-designed life].
So here is where this is all heading. It’s in 110 countries; it’s all over the US. It’s in most schools, and they’re starting in preschool. This is what you’re dealing with. So, when you’re considering homeschooling, I just want people to understand what they’re up against, and what they need to weed out. It’s more than just the School Board. There are a lot of parts going on here…all integrated and coordinated, working together to accomplish their diabolic goal.
- [Writer’s insert: The public school system in America…K through college…is completely under the control of Marxist radicals…and has been for an entire generation. Our kids are being brainwashed, indoctrinated, and poisoned beyond measure. These public school moral and spiritual child molesters are agents of Satan, and their relentless agenda is to steal our children’s innocence, kill them spiritually, and destroy every sense of their morality.] There is no worse violence than the brutalizing of children. Heaven is crying out, “Woe, woe! Your judgments have no cure.”
- They’re Teaching Children To Be Nice, but Stupid
Nice and stupid. Another important point made by Austin Fitts is that many of the “improvements” in education have been designed to make children less knowledgeable. For example, Common Core “is designed to make you phenomenally ignorant of math, and very obedient and easy to control.”
- Financial apps aimed at children are another form of programming. For example, the FinTech app “Greenlight,” advertised as a debit card for kids and teens, is financed by players such as Wells Fargo, JP Morgan, Chase and Amazon. On the surface, this may look great. They’re saying this is a help for parents to raise financially smart kids. So, what they do is, the [parents] pay them their allowance, or they pay them for chores. It goes through a little MasterCard Greenlight card that then goes into the bank, and then they [the parents] can control their kid’s spending. So, it’s teaching them about getting involved in the banking system digitally.
Of course, we now know that the globalist elite are planning to roll out a programmable Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), with which they’ll be able to control how, where and when you spend your own money…exactly like “parents” overseeing their “children’s” spending. So, “Greenlight” is basically teaching children to see this system as completely normal. As noted by Austin Fitts, “Kids are getting groomed to plug into a system which will be centrally controlled.”
- How to Break the Indoctrination Schedule
Parents who are waking up to the nightmare planned for their children by the WEF and its allies are now starting to fight back. Here are a few key things parents need to do to protect their young children from the indoctrination currently trying to swallow their kids:
*Homeschool your children. Some parents are starting their own schools, educating five or six children.
*Get your children out in nature as much as possible.
*Eliminate mindless TV watching and cell phone use.
*Be a role model for your children. That means modeling in your own life appropriate use of television and technologies such as computers, cell phones and social media.
*Minimizing your own cell phone use, to whatever extent possible, is one thing everyone can do. I truly believe that if we ditch [our cell phones], if 50% of the population ditched them, that would put a major crushing blow to their agenda, on most of what they’re rolling out. There’s geo-fencing on phones. Everywhere you go, you’re being tracked. You don’t even have to be on the phone. It could just be in your pocket, it can be in your car. They track everything we do on the internet as well.
If we do nothing to change our technology-addicted lifestyles, what will happen to us in 10 years’ time? Where will we be? We’ll all be slaves…literally enslaved by the technology that is tracking and analyzing us every moment. Decisions will be made for us by AI… whether we like it or not…based on our social credit scores. Children may even be taken from their families at a young age and brought up in facilities where their upbringing and behavior can be controlled. “Parents will have no authority over their children, and the children… their bodies and their minds…will be used to prototype all sorts of transhumanism.
- Understand the End Game and Do Not Comply
There’s really only one way to prevent the transhumanist, centrally controlled authoritarian regime from getting a foothold: DO NOT COMPLY. We have to say NO to all of their schemes. If you do comply, understand that you are erecting your own prison walls, and that of your children, with every data point you let them have.
- The Planned Takeover of Your Bank Account
Also, consider using cash as much as possible, and move your money out of the big banks, as they too are part of the control system. I started noticing that they [my bank] were categorizing my spending. I’m like, ‘What is this?’ All of a sudden, it’s showing my grocery shopping and restaurant and health care expenditures? I tell people go into your bank right now, look at the categorizing that’s happening. They’re already getting the infrastructure set up to control spending by categorizing it all. It’s NOT for your convenience, so you can better budget and see how you’re spending your money.” “You want to call them [your bank] and make sure the bank is keeping your categorized spending data on their [the bank’s] server, because you did not give permission for all of that data to be shared with the computer system provider.” Having the data stored on the bank server helps protect against this malicious data harvesting.
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: The “Brave New World” of Genetically Modified People. It’s almost as if Aldous Huxley described our present situation when he wrote ‘Brave New World’ in 1931…a world ruled by science and efficiency and devoid of emotion and relationships. The World Economic Forum claims that genetic modification is the way of the future. Now as we find ourselves entrapped in this nightmarish world, how do we Find Our Way Out of Huxley’s Brave New World?
- This story is about the hubris of conquest and genetic modification. Let’s start with the ugly. The richest people of the world, as well as their loyal servants from the World Economic Forum, are on the Genetic Modification team. According to the World Economic Forum, “the evolution of gene testing and gene editing will drive the future of healthcare.” Here in this article is a WEF technical video from 2016 on “Harnessing Gene Editing for Multiple and Permanent Genetic Changes.” BRETHREN…READ THAT AGAIN! Do you understand what they are planning? TO PERMANENTLY ALTER YOUR DNA! And it has already started with the mRNA “vaccines” and boosters they have been attempting to force and/or coerce people to be injected with.
- A Legal Framework for a “Mutant Apocalypse”?
In February 2022, Chile passed a law prohibiting employers to discriminate against “genetically impaired employees.” In response, a lot of people in the freedom community started asking questions. Does somebody expect a sudden and inevitable great increase in the number of genetically impaired people? Why?
- What Could Potentially Cause an Excessive Amount of “Genetic Impairment?”
As we all know, the COVID injections are designed to turn our bodies into factories producing spike proteins. At no point in known history have our bodies been biologically instructed to grow foreign spikes on the surface of our cells…so this is frankly kind of creepy. There is a reason why our instincts naturally go against Frankenstein initiatives and untested products…and these mRNA gene therapies are largely products never tested beforehand on human beings…until now, and we are the guinea pigs.
- As Dr. Alexander notes poignantly, “We have NO IDEA in the human model…as we have no idea in everything…as to the safety of these vaccines and the short, medium, and long-term effects. We have NO IDEA if persons who have taken these vaccines will not have autoimmune disease or be severely ill, or have severe side effects, or even die from the vaccines, in the future.”
- And here is analysis by Mikolaj Raszek, PhD, in Canada. To sum up my answer to the question as to whether COVID injection may alter human DNA…we have NO IDEA. And yet so many people are forced to take them…like cattle.
- The War On Natural Immunity And Ability
Eroding natural health and natural defenses (whether accidentally or on purpose) turns us into “loyal customers” [by default] who have to subscribe to the “artificial immunity” service of the pharmaceutical companies for the rest of our lives, however long it lasts. And where does the money come from to pay for this, assuming that the citizens are all half-alive and can barely provide for themselves? Well, the money may well come, for example, from the planned soon-coming virtual digital “press”…[CBDCs] owned by the Central Bank, who would fund the “noble” companies providing the artificial immunity services to the people in the name of “public health.”
Brethren…That terrible day of the Lord is near. Swiftly it comes…a day of bitter tears, a day when even strong men will cry out. It will be a day when the Lord’s anger is poured out…a day of terrible distress and anguish, a day of ruin and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness, a day of trumpet calls and battle cries. Down go the walled cities and the strongest battlements! Because you have sinned against the Lord, I will make you grope around like the blind. Your blood will be poured into the dust, and your bodies will lie rotting on the ground. Your silver and gold will not save you on that day of the Lord’s anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of His jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on Earth. [Zeph 1:14-18]
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…7th part of a new weekly 10 sermon series by Dr. David Jeremiah…proving that we are currently living in the End Times prophesied in Scripture. I will be posting all the messages in this series as they are presented. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching these video presentations.
Sunday 10/31: Cancel Culture…A Political Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kug-AJvsMwg
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: Preparation of the Way For the Anti-christ
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.
- Franklin Dream: Ben Franklin, speaking to God the Father: “I guess we are no longer a Republic.” God the Father replied, “No, it’s Mine now, as is the whole Earth.”
Great Reset. If you don’t get a vaccine, you can’t work. That is the spirit of Anti-christ in our Country right now. https://youtu.be/RaElA7f9bWw
Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…as they are even now…the people of the world learn righteousness. Though God shows grace to the wicked, even so, they still do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. [Luke 21:26; Isa 26:10]
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6] Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
I love my Country; I grew up here, and worked here, and enjoyed the freedoms we were given here. Even so…this Country is no longer the Country I grew up in. It has become something else…something totally different, something strange and foreign to me. We are a Nation no longer under the rule and Authority of God, and as a result so horribly transformed from what our Founding Fathers envisioned and birthed. Once a great and respected Christian Nation, God has made us the laughingstock of the world. This is what the Sovereign Lord said to Moses concerning the Israelites, and our Nation’s founding fathers warned it would apply to America as well: If you disobey the Lord your God and do not faithfully keep all His commands and laws that I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you in accordance with God’s solemn resolve to punish you as you deserve for disobeying Him.
Cursed shall you be in the city and
cursed shall you be in the field.
Cursed shall you be when you come in and
cursed shall you be when you go out.
The Lord will send upon you curses…calamitous events such as fires, floods, earthquakes, or pestilence that happen suddenly with a huge loss of life.
He will bring confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking Him. [Deut 15-16, 19-20]
Presented below is what it looks like…utter chaos…when God has determined by His Own Divine Decree to destroy a Nation, as He has America. Here is what a Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship looks like as it continues to unilaterally shut down, trample over, and shred our every constitutional right that stands in its way.
Make no mistake about it…God Himself has Personally judged our Nation with utter destruction, by His Own Divine Decree. Man did not do this; God didn’t just allow this to happen, He determined it to happen. Just as He did not allow Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed, or allow the world to be destroyed by a Great Flood…He Personally caused it.
We are plunging into a deep and very dark abyss in American history, at warp speed! A new Democrat reign of terror is upon us, utterly obliterating our Constitutional Republic, free speech, free press, political playing field, and our personal liberty! We need to be fully aware of what is taking place in our Nation in order to know how to be prepared as ministers of the Lord during these End Times.
God has determined by Divine decree that our Nation will be destroyed. “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat! Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.” God has Personally stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22] He has caused their thinking to become utterly confused…just as He had warned…so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation! You see it unfolding before your very eyes every day! The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused. [Deut 28:28]
Destruction of America
- Brethren…you need to watch this Pastor Dana prophetic dream concerning ominous events that will take place during December, and January. We see all of these things being foreshadowed even now in our everyday news…
Baltic Dry Index dead…no movement of goods, no global trade; ships anchored in ports, nothing moving at sea;
people standing for hours on long food lines;
Nationwide power outages;
people being housed in shelters;
market crashes and yields lost;
Great sadness throughout the land; people seemed very dazed and very confused;
Depression as a creature, choking people, pushing them down;
God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation:
- Perhaps God is now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid, or severe food shortages resulting from cargo ships stranded unloaded in our harbors…I don’t know; I can’t answer that. Even so…This is where I continue to stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place.
And so I continue to encourage you…Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take place so as to not be overwhelmed by a severe scarcity of goods, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression!
You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. [Phil 2:14-16] We have been raised up by the Lord for such a time as this!
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. [Ezek 14:13, 19, 20; Isa 26:10]
In that glorious coming Day of the Lord I will proclaim, Surely You are my God; I trusted in You, and You saved me! You are my Lord; I trust You with an unwavering child-like trust! I rejoice and am filled with gladness in Your salvation! Come, children of God…let us sing joyously to our Lord; let us shout aloud to the mighty Rock of our salvation! [Isa 25:9; Ps 95:1]
When our God shall come, even Christ, to set up His Kingdom on the Earth…a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. Only the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord will return. We will enter Zion with singing, our heads crowned with everlasting joy! Gladness and joy will overtake me, forever free from sorrow and grief! [Isa 35:8-10]
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/ and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:
- Revelation 13:16-20
He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark.The mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations. His number is 666.
Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.
First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.
The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.
And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.
Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration. The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit. And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!
- Revelation 14:9-12
A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb! And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever! There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!”This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
- Revelation 14:17-20
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple,“Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
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.”
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.
