Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Wednesday, June 8th,
was the launch date of our 40 Day Prayer Journey.  The 40 days ended on July 17th.  The Holy Spirit, however, has prompted me to continue our prayer journey for another 20 days…until Day Sixty.  I invite you to continue on our prayer journey along with me.

Reflections: Day Fifty-six

Beloved…genuine faith is indeed the living out of your life in a manner that bears witness to your child-like trust in Me, your child-like dependence upon Me, and your child-like obedience to My will.  My righteous ones will live by faith; but if any soul shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him.  Without faith, it is impossible to please God. [Heb 10:38; 11:6; Day 238]  
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.  


He commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father. [Acts 1:4]

My beloved child…One filling, one Baptism of My Holy Spirit, is not enough.  You daily need to wait for Me, your God and Father, to fulfill My promise in you.  You need to keep on being continually filled with My Holy Spirit. [Eph 5:18]  The Holy Spirit in you is not a Power at your disposal, nor is My Spirit an independent Power, acting apart from both My Son and Myself.  My Spirit is the real Living Presence and the Power of God working in you, and therefore it is just as you know, as you fully understand, that My Spirit dwells in you…never to leave you, never to forsake you…that you will realize the absolute necessity of waiting upon Me for the full revelation and experience of what My Spirit’s indwelling is, and for His increase and abounding more and more.  My apostles were not only filled with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, but received fresh fulfillments of My promise thereafter as well, as the need arose and as they asked. Keep in mind…My Spirit does not impart grace or strength or life as a gift given, as something that comes out from Him and is given to you to become yours, or to then be used by you in your living out your everyday life.  No…He gives by giving Himself to work ALL Personally in you; He does it ALL Himself…it is all inseparable from Himself.  He does it in you; you do not do ANYTHING at all other than to carefully and diligently fulfill your responsibility to actively respond to His leading and cooperate with His enabling grace working within you.  You are not the doer; I am the doer.  It is My work, not yours.  Much more so My Holy Spirit.  He is not given to you as a Power that you use in order to produce fruit or good works.  No…He Himself is given to you, and then He Himself works in you, and He produces fruit and good works in you.  Therefore, ALL the Glory belongs to Him!  The Holy Spirit is God, present and working in His Power in you.  The true position in which you can count upon that working with an unceasing Power is as you, praising Me for what you have been given, still unceasingly wait for My promise to be still more mightily fulfilled within you.  With My gift of Pentecost, it is now possible for Me to take possession of My redeemed child, and work in My children as I did before the fall of Adam.

**        **, the two great lessons of the spiritual life are thus:
your entire sinfulness and helplessness and utter impotence to do anything towards the maintenance and increase of your inner spiritual life;
the infinite willingness of God’s Love to communicate Myself and My Blessedness every moment to work in you all that you need by My Son and Spirit.

Therefore, the very essence of true religion consists in an unalterable dependence upon God, because you can give Me no other glory than yielding yourself to My Love, which created you to show forth in you My Glory, that it may now perfect its work in you.  The solemn truth is that you are utterly helpless and eternally unable to do anything that is good or pleasing or acceptable to God.  I Myself Personally do these things through you, with you, and in you as you are in direct communication with Me and Christ Jesus My Son, and We work in you and maintain the life of the Spirit in you.  This is the Eternal desire of Our heart.  You can, therefore, be absolutely sure that the Omnipotent God will, through the Glorified Christ, work in you with a Power that can bring to pass things unexpected, things impossible!  What will not My church be able to do when her individual members learn to live their lives waiting upon God, and when together, with all of self and the world sacrificed in the fire of love, they unite in waiting with one accord for the promise of the Father, once so gloriously fulfilled, but still unexhausted!

My brothers and sisters in Christ…our God and Father has given us the eternal gift of His Holy Spirit to dwell in each one of us…never to leave me, never to forsake me: Because you are My child, I have given you the Spirit of My Son to dwell in your heart, and He continually cries out, “Abba, Father!” All who are indeed My children are continually led by My indwelling Holy Spirit!  He is the Power of the Most High God Who places me where I am to be, leads me where I am to go, shows me what I am to do to participate together with Him in His work, gives me the thoughts I am to think and to present, gives me the words I am to speak or write, and gives me Divine tokens of my Father’s Love for me.  The Holy Spirit Himself testifies together with my own human spirit, assuring me that I am indeed God’s child!  As God’s child, my place is to be available to my Father to be His messenger, His ministering spirit, His watchman, His prophet, whenever He calls me to Himself and sends me out in His Name.  Whenever God’s children respond with an unquestioning child-like obedience to the leading of the Spirit, His anointing rests upon us!

I want to share a personal testimony to illustrate how during the course of my everyday life as a child of the Most High God, obedience to the leading of the Spirit always brings the blessings of God, and how prayer, in agreement with God’s will, moves the hand of God.  Kristen had only known deep sadness and sorrow, intense crying and pain, overwhelming grief, loneliness, and broken-heartedness throughout the sixty years of her life.  There were the chains of broken and strained relationships… relationships between husband and wife; parent and child; brothers, sisters and family members; friends and neighbors.  Then the Lord opened her eyes to His Goodness, loving-kindness, and Power…and her eternal destiny was forever changed!

All who are indeed the children of God are continually led by the indwelling Holy Spirit of God.  As I walked along the path His Spirit had quite unexpectedly set before me in late September, 2014, He incredibly opened doors in front of me; incredibly parted the waters before me!  I experienced the most astounding 15 Spirit-filled days of my life! Obedience to the leading of the Spirit always brings the blessings of God… brings His blessings and salvation before the souls of Man.  All of these wondrous promises were manifested in astonishing reality when the Spirit of God Personally sent me to bear His blessings and His glorious gift of salvation to my cousin Kris in New Mexico!

Kris and I had never met until just 3 months prior, when I had planned a trip to Southern California for a four day visit with my lone surviving aunt… my mother’s sister…whom I also had never met.  My mother had just gone home to be with the Lord in December, 2013, and there were only 2 siblings of 13 children remaining alive in the Whiteman family…my Aunt Rita and an Uncle in Hawaii.  Kris lived in New Mexico, but was there in California to look after her mother; she and her sister Carol alternated spending several months at a time doing this.  We had a blessed time together, and she told me she had decided to relocate to California to live there to take care of her mother rather than making these trips from New Mexico and extended stays.

When I returned to my home in Florida, and Kris to her home [that she shared with a cousin, Ron] in Hurley, New Mexico [just outside Silver City], we stayed in touch as I tried to help her plan her move to Warner Springs, California.  After many phone conversations and hours of prayer on my part [my cousin was not saved], it became apparent that her situation was hopeless.  Kris had very little money to do this, no one who would make themselves available to help pack her household belongings which included a 1,200 sq. ft. work/storage shed loaded with artwork and equipment, and no one available to drive a U-Haul truck from New Mexico to California!  She was utterly despondent!

It was then, one early morning well before daylight during my daily time of communing with the Lord, that He told me, out of the clear blue, “Go to New Mexico and help your cousin move.”  I responded, “Well…OK, Lord; I will do that…but You do know I am 71, don’t You?  I have so little energy, strength, and stamina for doing something like this!”  How can I be sure this is You?  So I proceeded to make all the plans necessary to help Kris with her move…airline tickets, my housing accommodations in New Mexico and California, U-Haul truck reservation, etc.  But my continual prayer was, “Lord…if my planning to do this is not the leading of Your Holy Spirit but rather the leading of my human spirit, then please don’t let me go; keep me from doing this.  I do not want to go to New Mexico if Your Holy Spirit is not going to be with me.”  This was not just some frivolous prayer.  Several years prior, the Lord had Personally assured me, “As long as your heart is pure, I won’t let you make a mistake” [that is a quote!]…meaning that as long as I have no self-serving motives or agenda in what I wanted to do, and nothing I wanted to gain for myself, He would keep me from making a mistake, just as the Spirit stopped Paul from preaching the Word in the Province of Asia and would not allow him to enter Bithynia. [Acts 16:6-7]  I had prayed that prayer three times before prior to out-of-State ministry trips.  Once He intervened out of the clear blue to stop me from going; though I lost the money for the airline ticket and the hotel reservation, I praised Him for it, because I did not want to be where His Holy Spirit was not with me.  The other two times He permitted me to go, and I had the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon me the entire time!  I knew it, and could sense it beyond the shadow of any doubt…that what I was doing and speaking wasn’t me: I exclaimed, Oh Lord, this is not me; this is You!

The Lord didn’t stop me, and so I had the confirmation that I was going in the Power of His Holy Spirit.  As we were approaching the Phoenix airport, where I would board a little “puddle jumper” to Silver City, I was pleading with the Lord to keep me from getting airsick on that flight.  Kris, who like me is easily susceptible to motion sickness, told me how much she dreaded that flight and how sick she has often been on it.  I got even more apprehensive after walking to the boarding area, and could see this little two propeller plane sitting on the runway…with a set of roll-a-way steps leading up to the door!  It was questionable whether we were even going to be cleared for take off because of the numerous severe storms in the mountains along our one hour route to Silver City [although it was calm in Phoenix]!  Finally…the pilot was pulling down on one of the two propellers to hand-crank start the engine!  I groaned, “Oh Lord, help!”  There were four rows of 2 seats on each side of the plane…sixteen seats in all; I walked bent over down the aisle to avoid scraping my head along the ceiling, and took a window seat…praying.  As we became airborne, I kept looking at the ominous clouds off in the distance…and kept praying the same prayer over the next hour: “Lord, please don’t let me get sick; I can’t afford to get sick.” Finally, the pilot announced we were about to land in Silver City.  I couldn’t believe it!  The entire trip was as smooth as glass!  Not even a bump!  I had never even been on a jetliner flight as smooth as this!  Not even close!  As I thanked the Lord for this very special blessing, He brought to mind, “If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, nothing bad will happen to you; no disaster will come to your plane [home]. For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go.  They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. [Ps 91:9-12]  Hallelujah!

Ron [Kris’ cousin] picked me up at the airport and drove me to the rental cottage I had arranged to stay at.  This was another wonderful move of the hand of God on my behalf!  This particular rental was my second choice. Originally, there was another cottage available that seemed better to me at the time, but I could not reach the owner, although I had left a number of messages.  I was going to find out later why the Lord blocked my first rental choice and led me to this one.  The owner of this cottage was very well known and well connected in Silver City.  It was through her that I would be able to get two local college football players, along with a local pastor, to help load our 14 foot U-Haul truck a week later…7,000 lbs. of boxes, equipment, and furniture…in the 2 hour time frame we had before dark that afternoon before the following morning’s scheduled 8 AM departure for California!

Nine thirty the following morning in Hurley, when I saw the loaded 1,200 square foot work/storage shed behind the house that needed to be packed, I understood why Kris was overwhelmed and depressed by this obviously monumental task!  Undaunted and confident in the Lord, I reassured Kris we would be able to do this in the 6 days we had.. and just began packing stuff in boxes!  As the hours rolled by, I was functioning like a 30-years-younger warehouseman…packing, lifting, moving, stacking 40+ lb. boxes!  I was wired!  I had energy, strength, and stamina that was not mine…and I knew it!  I commented to the Lord, “Whoa, Lord…this is not me; this is You!”  The Spirit of the Lord was upon me; I was anointed!  Kris asked me several times during the day if I wanted to take a break.  I said, “No; you go ahead.”  She asked me if I wanted to have lunch.  I said, “No; you go ahead.”  I worked straight through to dinner time…when she looked at me in utter disbelief: “I can’t believe you worked all day long without a break!  How do you feel?”  I replied, “Wired!”  She and Ron are both 10 years younger than I.  Each day, for the 6 days we had to complete packing, the Lord energized me to work in this non-stop manner.  My only other prayer was, “Lord… please don’t let me get hurt.”  I had never worked with this kind of intensity my entire life!  We finished the task right on schedule…the evening before the day we were scheduled to pick up the U-Haul truck and then load it!  Hallelujah!

From the very beginning, the prospect of having to drive a fully loaded 14′ U-Haul truck…13,000 lbs. of sheer weight…for the twelve hour trip from New Mexico to California was quite intimidating.  The last time I had driven a truck was a deuce-and-a-half in the Army 40 years ago!  The route I was going to travel was also intimidating…starting in the mountain plateau of Hurley with an immediate 6,000 foot descent to sea level!  Then I would be traveling in the mountains of Arizona en route to Phoenix, through several dangerous mountain passes prone to sudden storms that truckers always warn about.  Then West for a 4 hour trip through the desert wasteland of California where the temperatures were currently reading 105 degrees [and this was October 1st!].  Then back into the mountains for a roller coaster 4,000 foot ascent with sharp curves, dangerous switchbacks, and sheer drop-offs along the sides of the narrow mountain road…to Warner Springs and Kris’ mother’s home in the boondocks!  I had visions of burning out my brakes, runaway truck, overheated engine…packing several gallons of extra coolant as a precaution for the trip!  I was in fervent prayer…”Oh Lord, watch over me, protect me, and keep me safe.”  The Lord reassured me…”Surely, Michael, I shall deliver you from the hidden traps and from deadly hazards.  I shall cover you with My pinions, and under My wings you shall abide with Me and find refuge.  You will be safe in My care; My truth and My faithfulness will protect and defend you.  You need not be afraid of any terror of the night, nor the sudden evil attacks of the enemy during the day, nor of any dreaded diseases that stalk in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death of disasters that surprise and lay waste at noonday. [Ps 91: 3-6]

Ron and I were at U-Haul rental in Silver City Tuesday morning 8 AM to pick up our reserved 14′ truck.  I thought it kind of strange we didn’t see a truck that size in the parking area.  After we entered the office I found out why…”Oh, your truck is in Las Cruces; you need to pick it up there.”  “Las Cruces?!  That’s 100 miles from here!”  Ron was ballistic, and belligerent…as a non-believer would naturally be!  I was bewildered at being blind-sided… so I calmly inquired of the Lord about it, and thought, “Well Lord…I don’t understand, but I trust You.  There is a reason why You allowed this to happen, and I know You make all things work together for good.”  We quickly checked out the only other U-Haul Rental agency in Silver City to see if they had a 14′ truck available in their lot… and then proceeded on our way to Las Cruces.

Things were not going well after arriving there; we went to several U-Haul rentals before finding out which one our truck was located at.  With the address in hand and Ron’s GPS, we headed for the other side of the City along a very busy elevated highway.  We exited where the GPS indicated, crossed under the highway, and turned down the service road in the opposite direction, along which the U-Haul Rental was supposed to be located.  It was nowhere to be seen!  So we re-entered the Highway and got off at the designated exit once again…looking much more carefully along the service road.  No U-Haul rental!  We did this a 3rd time, stopping along the way several times to ask directions.  No one knew of a U-Haul rental in the area!  Poor Ron was completely undone at this point.  I knew it was Satan trying to hinder me; I began inquiring of the Lord, and was prompted to say to Ron, “Lets try this one more time…but this time, lets go one exit further than the GPS indicates before swinging around onto the service road.”  We exited where the Lord had directed me, and pulled off along the side for Ron to answer his cell phone.  It was Kris, frantically asking why we hadn’t picked up the truck yet…that U-Haul had just called to tell her they were going to cancel our reservation if we didn’t show up in the next 15 minutes!  She gave us the phone number of the place we had been trying to find for the last hour…and after the agent asked where we were right now, he said, “Oh, we are just around the corner from where you are.”  Praise the Lord!

After filling out the paperwork for the truck, I climbed in, quite apprehensive about suddenly finding myself behind the wheel of a 14′ truck and faced with the prospect of a 100 mile drive back to Silver City! But now I knew why the Lord had allowed all this anguish, distress, and inconvenience to take place!  He had set aside for me a brand new state-of-the art U-Haul truck [just 10,000 miles on the odometer!]!  It had automatic downshifting for mountain driving…during the entire 12 hour trip to California I hardly ever had to even use the brakes!  The air conditioning in the cab was so cold I needed to wear a jacket during the trip through the 100+ degree desert!  The engine thermometer never budged off normal…no matter how steep the road, no matter how long the distance!  Even more…He had arranged for me to drive the 100 miles back from Las Cruces just to familiarize me with the vehicle and give me the confidence I would need for the trip to California!  Incredible!

As a child of God, I am His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works…which God Himself has planned in advance for me to do.  My place is to be available to Him whenever He calls…to be His messenger, His ministering spirit, His watchman.  All who are indeed children of God are continually led by the Spirit of God…if our antennas are up and we are listening for His voice behind us, saying, “This is the way; walk ye in it.” Although I was sent to meet Kris’ physical need to move from New Mexico to California, that was the door the Lord opened for me to minister to Kris God’s gift of salvation.  That was the spiritual purpose for the trip.  For 15 days I was able to testify to the many incredible things the Lord had done in my own life over the years.  She saw with her own eyes and heard with her own ears all the incredible things the Lord was doing right in front of her as the things I have written in this testimony were unfolding.  She couldn’t believe that I purchased for her as a gift [at the Lord’s leading], and arranged to have set up on site at her mother’s property before we arrived, a beautiful 10′ X 10′ oak shed as her artist’s work space.  She couldn’t believe someone would come all the way from Florida to help her do all this packing, when none of her “friends” made themselves available to help.  She couldn’t believe someone would be willing to drive a fully loaded 14′ U-Haul truck on a two day trip, and make arrangements for an overnight stay at a motel at the halfway point…when none of her acquaintances were willing to do so.  After reaching her mother’s place in Warner Springs, and unloading the truck with the help I had arranged with a local pastor…she was in tears, saying, “No one in all my 60 years has ever been so nice to me.  And you had only just met me for the first time three months ago at my mother’s house!”  These were the reasons why she so readily accepted Christ Jesus as her Lord and Savior.  Through the Power of the Holy Spirit, I was able to make Jesus real to her.  Her salvation was my blessing as well…that I could rejoice along with the angels in Heaven over this one lost soul who came to repentance and became the bride of Christ in Divine marriage! [Luke 15:7]   It was worth it all!

I don’t know whether in the depths of your heart you really believe there is a God in Heaven Who continually leads His children by His Holy Spirit, but this I do know…Kris was utterly lost, without hope and without God, and then the Holy Spirit commissioned me to be Christ’s ambassador, to reveal to her His fathomless Love, boundless Mercy, and infinite Grace!  She accepted His invitation and made a solemn vow to become the eternal bride of Christ!
I proclaim to you Christ Jesus…the One Who existed from the beginning, from Eternity Past, Whom I have heard with the ears of my own inner being, and have seen with my own spiritual eyes.  I have gazed upon Him and have spiritually touched Him with my own hands.  He is the Word of Life.  His Life is continually being revealed to me; I have seen it and testify to it, and I proclaim to you that He is the One Who is Eternal Life.  He always existed with the Father, and is now continually being manifested afresh and anew to me.  I proclaim to you what I have personally seen and heard in the depths of my soul, so that you also may enjoy this same fellowship together with us. The fellowship I continually enjoy is with the Father and with His Son, Christ Jesus.  I am writing these things so that you also may fully share together with me in this fullness of joy. [1 John 1:1-4]   It is our birth-right as children of the Most High God!

Abba Father, You have lovingly encouraged me, as well as all of Your children: Trust in Me with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; but in all your ways…watch for Me and wait before Me, look off unto Me and listen for My voice; acknowledge Me in this way, and I will most assuredly direct your paths…I will most assuredly lead you and guide you by My indwelling Holy Spirit.  I have laid aside the blessings of obedience for My children!  Father, this is surely the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with You: my waiting upon God…watching and waiting, looking off unto You and listening for Your voice…with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation, for You to reveal Yourself to me ever more deeply and intimately, and Your plans, Your purposes, Your will for me…SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of Your Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.  Hallelujah!
My soul, wait thou only upon God!  


Wednesday, June 8th, was the launch date of our 40 Day Prayer Journey, now continuing for another 20 days:
What is it that you are asking the Lord to do for you?  What are the specific blessings you are praying for?

Personal revival.
  Revival begins in one’s own heart.  The prayer journey is a consecration of my heart to God, pleading with Him to bring revival, and to begin with me:

  • Longing for God…an ever deeper, more intimate, personal relationship with Him.
  • Hunger and thirst for personal holiness in my heart, manifested in living out my everyday life.
  • Seeking to keep on being continually filled with the Holy Spirit.

This is the entire focus for the prayer journey over these forty days.  It is intensely personal in nature, a heart-cry to God to touch my life by His Spirit, and work a deep change in me.  You may have this blessed assurance: you will never be the same again!

The hour in worship and prayer each day is not a time for intercession  for family members, friends, co-workers, or church family.  Do that at another time.  If you get lost in intercession for others during this hour of prayer, you will have lost the reason for, and purpose of, this prayer journey.  My heart longs to be inflamed with yearning for God alone…to pour out my soul, my life, my all for Him!

Preparation: Following is an example of a format for the daily hour of prayer during the Prayer Journey, to provide guidance on how a participant might effectively approach it.  The prayer journey is so intensely personal, however, that within this framework each individual will need to give the Holy Spirit free reign to lead and guide you in the way He alone knows is best for you.

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

Presentation: Dr. Mercola: From January 2021 to April 2022, at least 20 fires were reported at food processing plants, up from just two in 2019. The fires are drawing attention now that rising food prices and food shortages are becoming a reality.  There is a connection that needs to be investigated.  

In 2019, there were only two reported fires at U.S. food processing plants.  From January 2021 to April 21, 2022, at least 20 such fires were reported…a very sizable and suspicious jump…and they seem to be accelerating in recent weeks.  People are beginning to take notice of these seemingly “random” fires and “accidents” that are occurring with increasing frequency at food processing plants across the U.S.
Meanwhile, leaders around the world have warned that, due to the war in Ukraine…which is considered the world’s bread basket…food shortages are coming, while disruptions to shipping and increased fertilizer prices are also driving up food costs.  Could these “random occurrences, accidental happenings, incidental incidences” just be strange coincidence driving up food prices to record highs and causing food shortages?  Not likely; there is something more sinister and diabolic going on.  We’re living in an unprecedented time when “strange” happenings continue to occur in quick succession…and all “just so happen” to have a major impact on the global economy.  

  • In March 2021, a massive container ship became wedged across the Suez Canal in Egypt…blocking “an artery of world trade,” triggering a rise in oil prices and leading to fallout that affected shipping around the globe.  
  • Now, war has disrupted supplies further, driving up fertilizer prices and, in turn, food costs.  Leaders around the world have warned that, due to the war in Ukraine…which is considered the world’s bread basket…food shortages are coming. 
  • Meanwhile, Bill Gates “just so happens” to be buying up U.S. farmland at a frenzied pace, and owns more farmland than any other private farmer in the country.   
  • On top of that, cases of bird flu have been reported in the U.S., with millions of poultry killed off by farmers as a result.   
  • There’s yet another series of events that is somehow even stranger…an unprecedented rash of fires at U.S. food processing plants.
  • Price inflation was already ramping up thanks to the uncontrolled printing of fiat currencies that occurred in response to the COVID pandemic.  Governments’ COVID response have also wreaked havoc with global supply chains, causing disruptions that continue to this day.  
  • The climate has also been uncooperative, causing poor harvests around the world.  China, for example, has reported it expects the lowest harvest yields in history this year, thanks to serious flooding of its farmland in the fall of 2021.  
  • All of these strange “incidents”…each one of them…have driven up the price of items at your grocery store. 
  • Fires and Accidents at Food Processing Plants: Coincidence?
    In the whole of 2019, there were only two reported fires at U.S. food processing plants.  From January 2021 to April 21, 2022, at least 20 such fires were reported…a very sizable and suspicious jump…and they seem to be accelerating in recent weeks.  [click on link at end of this presentation to see a timeline of these 20 events.]  
  • What’s Behind Rising Food Prices?
    We’ve got all these seemingly coordinated factors at play, all contributing to food shortages and increased prices.  We are witnessing what appears to be the perfect storm for sky-high food prices and food scarcity.  The global food price index hit its highest recorded level in March 2022, rising 12.6% in a single month.  On average, food prices were one-third higher than in March 2021.  In the U.S., food prices rose 9% in 2021, and are predicted to rise another 4.5% to 5% in the next 12 months.  
  • Are We Entering Phase 2 of The Great Reset Plan?
    Are we witnessing total happenstance and coincidence?  Not even remotely; it is intentional.  The technocratic elites are orchestrating the takedown of our food supply.  They are deliberately trying to sabotage our supply chain.  All in accordance with their agenda to usher in the Great Reset with its one-world government and one-world financial system.  Their plan for you to “own nothing and be happy” is part of WEF’s 2030 agenda. 
  • WEF’s 2030 Agenda: The Great Reset.
    In the first quarter of 2021, 15% of U.S. homes sold were purchased by corporate investors…not families looking to achieve their American dream. 
    The average American has virtually no chance of winning a home over an investment firm, which may pay 20% to 50% over asking price, in cash, sometimes scooping up entire neighborhoods at once so they can turn them into rentals.  It appears we’re quickly entering an era where home ownership is becoming out of reach for many…necessitating renting instead of owning, a first step to “owning nothing.
    *World war, however, is Phase 2 of The Great Reset plan, which includes the destruction of supply chains, the energy sector, food supply and workforce, to create dependency on government, which in turn will be taken over by private interests and central banks through the collapse of the global economy.
    *Welcome to the second phase of the Great Reset: war.  While the pandemic acclimatized the world to lockdowns, normalized the acceptance of experimental medications, precipitated the greatest transfer of wealth to corporations by decimating SMEs [small and medium-sized businesses] and adjusted the muscle memory of workforce operations in preparation for a cybernetic future, an additional vector was required to accelerate the economic collapse before nations can ‘Build Back Better.’  T
    he current conflict between Russia and Ukraine is the next catalyst for the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda, facilitated by an interconnected web of global stakeholders and a diffuse network of public-private partnerships. 
    Disruption to supply chains fit right into this plan, while food shortages, will accelerate the acceptance of synthetic foods, such as lab-grown meat, which has also been championed by Great Reset front men like Bill Gates.

News article: Beef prices set to surge further as farmers sell off cattle herds.  U.S. cattle producers are sending higher numbers of breeding stock to the sale barn, and some are liquidating their herds entirely, signaling a trend that analysts say will likely push already-elevated beef prices even higher in the not-too-distant future.  Sky-high input prices coupled with ongoing drought conditions in much of the country are exacerbating the sell-offs.

News article: Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis CEO says inflation is ‘very concerning’ and ‘spreading out’ across economy.  Neel Kashkari says Federal Reserve cannot wait for supply chain to adjust…which means they are preparing the way to launch a major infringement on American’s freedoms.  “We cannot wait till supply fully heals.  We have to do our part with monetary policy,” he added.  

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

We are not to fear any newscast, but rather to be attentive to what the Lord is doing in the world.  The truth is, God moves in the midst of such times as this, and through them He speaks warnings to all who would hear His voice.  In short, sudden judgment is coming, and Scripture strongly indicates it is now at the door.  Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until He reveals His plans to His servants the prophets.  The lion has roared…so who isn’t frightened?  The Sovereign Lord has spoken…so who can refuse to proclaim His message? [Amos 3:7]

The alarm has already been sounding and the trumpet has already been blowing…for the past 26 months!  The warning is not that judgment is coming; judgment has already come, currently playing out before our very eyes…and is going to get MUCH WORSE.
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.  

The Day of the Lord

Behold, the Lord lays the Earth waste, devastates it and turns it upside-down, and scatters abroad its inhabitants.  The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this Word.  The land and the Earth also are defiled by their inhabitants, because they have transgressed His laws, disregarded His statutes, and broken His everlasting covenant.  Therefore a curse devours the land and the Earth, and they who dwell in it suffer 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 writhes in chaos.  Anarchy reigns; 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 good times are gone forever.  The city is left in ruins, its gates battered and destroyed. [Isa 24:1-13]

God’s holy remnant

The only singing during this His harvest will be done by the believing remnant who trust God and are delivered!  Throughout the Earth the story is the same; this is the fate of all nations…only a remnant is left, like the stray olives left on the tree, or the few grapes left on the vine after harvest.  If the Lord of Heaven’s Armies had not spared a few of us, we would have been wiped out like Sodom, destroyed like Gomorrah.

Woe to the Earth

But as for me, my heart is heavy with grief.  Weep for me, for I wither away.  Deceit still prevails, and treachery is everywhere.  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 has broken up.  It has utterly collapsed; it is violently shaken.  The Earth staggers like a drunk.  It trembles like a tent in a storm.  It falls and will not rise again, for the guilt of its rebellion is very heavy. [Isa 24:16-20]

The Lord Reigns

In that day the Lord will punish both the “gods” in the heavens and the proud rulers of the nations on Earth.  They will be rounded up and put in prison.  They will be shut up in prison, and will finally be punished.  Then the glory of the moon will wane, and the brightness of the sun will fade, for the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will rule on Mount Zion. [Isa 24:21-23]

That is why the Lord says: Turn to Me now, while there is still time.  Give Me your hearts.  Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning.  Rend your hearts in your grief, and not your garments!  Return to the Lord your God, for He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.  He is eager to relent and not punish.  Who knows?  Perhaps He will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. [Joel 2:12-14]

End Times Of Biblical Prophesy

Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…6th part of a new weekly 10 sermon series by Dr. David Jeremiah…proving that we are currently living in the End Times prophesied in Scripture.  I will be posting all the messages in this series as they are presented.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching these video presentations.
Sunday 10/24: End Times People…A Biological Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah.

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

The Bible warns there will be the Anti-christ…a man who proclaims to be God…who will unite the world in a one world government, with a one world financial system, and establish a one world religion.
While we cannot predict “the day or the hour,” when you put all these components together, it’s starting to look even now a lot like the beginnings of the End.

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 

  • News article: Public Schools in America Are Now Characterized as Government Grooming Centers 
  • News article: Mass Resistance parent infiltrates “transgender” training session for elementary school teachers. Instruction on pushing “gender” ideology on children: Withhold info from parents because of “safety concerns.”
    Professional Development Course for teachers in Washington State run by national LGBT organization GLSEN.  Unknown to the public, many states enlist national LGBT organizations to instruct elementary school teachers how to push transgenderism (both “gender” ideology and transgender behaviors) and homosexuality to very young children.  In Washington State (and many other locales), this is done through state-run “professional development” sessions that teachers are required to attend to keep their certification.  Here we have a report from a Mass Resistance mother who attended and confronted the instructors with some hard questions.  Their answers were very offensive and revealed their anti-family radicalism.
    GLSEN now has a presence in almost every high school in America (and many middle schools) via its toxic “gay-straight alliance” student clubs.  It is one of the main disseminators of LGBTQ propaganda and sexuality materials to schoolchildren.
  • News article: Washington state school board director to teach sexual ‘pleasure’ class to 9-year-olds at sex shop.  The classes will be held at a local sex shop called Wink Wink.  A Washington state school board director…[who personally lives a filthy, disgusting, and repulsive life style and who is a perverted moral and spiritual child molestor]…who owns a sex shop is making headlines after announcing she will teach sex education classes for children as young as 9 on topics such as “sexual anatomy for pleasure” and “safer sex practices for all kinds of sexual activities.”
  • News article: Sexual Pervert Radicals Sue to Keep Pornography in Florida School Libraries.  State legislation prohibits educators from having conversations with students K-3 involving sexual orientation or gender identity, without express parental approval.  Part of that program includes the removal of pornographic novels from schools.  But activist Jen Cousins is fighting that effort, naming in a lawsuit schools in Orange County, Duval County, Indian River County and Palm Beach.  According to a report in the Gateway Pundit, Cousins’ campaign now includes berating public officials “for removing tomes that include abhorrent text and graphic pictorial representations of sometimes pedophiliac sex acts.”
  • Setting the stage for the next lying, fear-mongering “Pandemic.”  News article: New York governor: Monkeypox is a ‘disaster emergency.’  New York Gov. Kathy Hochul issued an executive order on Friday declaring a State Disaster Emergency in response to the “monkeypox outbreak.”   
  • Democrats laying the groundwork for their upcoming mid-term election fraud.  News article: US Postal Service Makes Announcement on Mail-In Ballots Ahead of Midterm Elections.  Several months ago, the Biden administration requested $5 billion to support the USPS’s mail-in voting operations over the next 10 years. 
  • Escalating Persecution of Christians.
    News article: Christian University Faces State Probe Over ‘LGBT’ Policies. 
    Washington State has launched an investigation into the hiring practices of a Christian university, who openly decided a long time ago to follow God’s design for marriage, not the government’s.  Attorney General Bob Ferguson is reportedly probing Seattle Pacific University’s religious beliefs that prohibit the hiring of LGBT people.  Mr. Ferguson, you might recall, is the same man who declared war on the Christian owner of a flower shop.  Baronelle Stutzman’s crime was refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding.
    News article: Women’s Soccer Player Kicked Off Field for Refusing to Wear Pride Jersey.  A professional women’s soccer team sidelined a Christian player for refusing to wear a gay pride-themed jersey.
    News article: British Man Arrested After Social Media Post Caused ‘Anxiety’ Among LGBT Crowd.  “Hampshire Police showed a blatant disregard of the law.  They approached Mr Brady and acted as summary judge, jury and executioner…but didn’t know what offence he’d actually committed.  They said he was being arrested for causing anxiety, which is utterly ridiculous,” he told the Daily Mail.  Police told Brady that he could avoid jail and possible hate crime charges if he would agree to attend a re-education seminar. The Army veteran declined.   

 2]  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 19 months already, and so the dreams are not really prophesy, they are a confirmation of the Holy Spirit of what is already taking place!
I am going to post one dream each day for the next 5 days; following is the 4th & 5th one [two in the one dream]. 
I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour.

  • Data Dream: Fried circuits in cities crashing; clouds of smoke…like smoke signals.  Then continuing on East to Philadelphia…
    [4th] under the Liberty bell, and then an explosion.  The Liberty Bell cracked in half, the 2 pieces laying on the rounded side on the ground.  The intense heat began melting them; they could never be put back together again.
    [5th] Circuits reach Capitol Bldg.
    explode; Capitol Bldg cracked in half.  Figure in white [Holy Spirit] standing at podium where Presidents give State of Union address: A house divided against itself SHALL NOT STAND.”  Then He walks to rear exit door, and flips the entire panel of light switches, one by one, until all the lights were out.

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…perhaps 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.”

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,
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 3:1-22 [NIV; amplification in italics]

To the angel (pastor) I have placed in charge of the church in Sardis concerning his congregation and each individual member, write:
“These are the words of Him Who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.  I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.  Wake up!  Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of My God.  Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent!  But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief in the night, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.  Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes.  They will walk with Me, dressed in white, for they are worthy.  He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white.  I will never erase his name from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and His angels.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches and each of their members.”

To the angel (pastor) I have placed in charge of the church in Philadelphia
concerning his congregation and each individual member, write:
“These are the words of Him Who is Holy and True, Who holds the key of David.  What He opens no one can shut, and what He shuts no one can open.  I know your deeds.  See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.  I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept My Word and have not denied My name.  I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars…I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.  Since you have kept My command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the Earth.  I am coming soon!  Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.  Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of My God.  Never again will he leave it.  I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the City of My God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of Heaven from My God; and I will also write on him My Own new name.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches and each of their members.”

To the angel (pastor) I have placed in charge of the church in Laodicea concerning his congregation and each individual member, write:
“These are the words of the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the ruler of God’s Creation.  I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot…not willing to give up pretension and claim to My name, yet having too much love for the world to stand steadfast and immovable with Me.  I wish you were either one or the other!  Make up your mind, would you please!  So, because you are lukewarm…neither hot nor cold…I am about to spit you out of My mouth!  You say, `I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’  But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked!  I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can truly see.  Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline.  So be earnest, and repent!  Here I am!  I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me.  To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with Me on My Throne, just as I overcame and sat down with My Father on His Throne.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches and each of their members.” [Revelation 3:1-22]

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.   

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


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.
