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-seven
The power of faith overcomes all adversity. There is an active power of faith that overcomes by securing deliverance from the adversity, in accordance with My will. And there is a passive power of faith that overcomes by patiently enduring the adversity, when deliverance is not My will. [Father God…Heb 11:1-39; Day 239]
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.
Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually. [Hos 12:6]
My beloved child…Waiting on God is the essence of true religion; this disposition and habit of your soul must be there unchangeably and uninterruptedly, and the spirit of entire and unreserved child-like dependence must be continuous. God wants you to be, and I Myself wait to make you…you want to be, and you wait upon Me to make you… every moment all I created you to be, and what is well-pleasing in My sight.
** **, this waiting continually on God must be the longing of your heart; it is an active matter of your heart, not of your mind…and what your heart is full of and occupies it, even when your thoughts are otherwise engaged. You will know it is indeed the longing of your heart when your mind, after being occupied and engaged in various responsibilities, always gravitates back to an intense desire for more of God. When your heart has learned how entirely powerless it is for even one moment to keep itself or bring forth any good, when it has learned how surely and truly God will keep it, when it has, in despair of itself, accepted My promise to do for you the impossible, then you will learn to rest in Me, and in the midst of occupation and temptation you will be enabled to wait uninterruptedly upon Me.
Child of God…My commands throughout My Word are all enablings…all revelations of what your God and Father will do for you. God, Who calls you to wait upon Me, sees your feeble efforts, and I Myself work it in you. Your spiritual life is in no respect your own work; as little as you began it, can you continue it. It is My Holy Spirit Who has begun the work in you of waiting upon God; He Himself will then enable you to wait continually. Your part in the work I am doing is to actively cooperate with His grace and respond to the leading of My Spirit; He is the One who enables you to do all things, as He works in you continually both to will and to do.
If you would only just understand, My child, your efforts in waiting continuously will be met and rewarded by God Myself working continually in you. I ever do work unceasingly, but your experience of it is hindered by unbelief. Yet I Who by My Spirit teaches you to wait unceasingly, will bring you to experience also how, as the Everlasting One, My work is never-ceasing. In the love and the life and the work of God there can be no break, no interruption. God, by My very nature, as the only Giver of Life, cannot otherwise than every moment work in My child. You may fail… often do…yet I abide faithful! God works always and continually, unfailingly; every moment you may, you must, wait on Me, continually. As faith’s vision sees your God working unceasingly in you, without one moment’s intermission, in the fullness of trust and joy the holy habit of your soul will become, “On Thee do I wait all the day!”
Blessed Holy Spirit…continually and unceasingly, day and night, I need to breathe in the breath of life that comes from You and sustains my spiritual life…just the same as my lungs need, continually and unceasingly, to breathe in that breath of life that comes from the outside air and sustains my physical life. You are the Power of the Most High God, given to me by my Father and sent by the Son to dwell in me… never to leave me, never to forsake me. It is Your Power in me that guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ the Son, and to live my everyday life faithfully within the Holy of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of my Father’s unclouded Presence…which is my birth-right as a child of the Most High God. Spirit of the Living God, day by day, moment by moment, You Personally live out the life of Christ Jesus the Son in me…a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, as I give You free reign to do so. And You Personally work out the death of Jesus in me, conforming me ever more deeply into the likeness of His death… death to sin and death to self…in order that I may thereby attain, more and more, to the Power of His resurrection life out from the dead…the power to walk through each and every day as more than a conqueror and with overwhelming victory. I fully understand and my heart is inflamed with yearning to know Jesus in the Power of His Resurrection, which can only be attained through the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings. For my determined purpose is that I may know Jesus…that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly…and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection which it exerts over God’s children, and that I may so share in the fellowship of His sufferings as to be continually transformed in spirit into His likeness even to His death, that I may attain to the spiritual and moral resurrection that lifts me out from among the dead even while still in the body. [Phil 3:9-11]
Blessed Holy Spirit…You alone are the Divine source of strength that works in me both the desire and the power to walk along the path that Jesus walked in the Garden that night…the only path leading up to the Gate that opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary wherein lies the Holy of Holies. It is the path of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self…the way that Jesus dedicated for me…the new and living way to God, through the veil, the veil of my flesh that hangs in front of the entrance into the Holy of Holies and forbids access into the unclouded Presence of my Father. Wherefore, brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of Jesus, by the way which He dedicated for us…a new and living way to God through the veil…that is to say, through the veil of His flesh. [Heb 10:19-20] The path that Jesus dedicated for me…the path He Personally walked as my Forerunner…leads up to the Gate that bears on its header the inscription THY WILL BE DONE. No one can pass through the Gate and enter into the Heavenly Sanctuary, wherein lies the Holy of Holies, until I first surrender my own free will there to the Gate-keeper. Jesus Himself, by virtue of the Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of His Blood poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary, rent the veil in two, from top to bottom…that veil that hung in front of the entrance into the Holy of Holies prohibiting entrance into the Presence of God, under penalty of death. By virtue of the rent veil of His Own flesh…the offering of His will unto death on the altar of sacrifice in obedience to the Father…He guaranteed and secured my eternal access into the Holy of Holies and the inaccessible Light of the Glory of my Father’s unclouded Presence, as my birth-right. And having taken upon Himself a human nature, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death…even death on a cross! [Phil 2:8]
My beloved child…consider My Divine Son Jesus, the Author and perfecter of your faith, Who for the joy set before Him, endured the cross, heedless of its shame. He is your preeminent example of faith; He lived the supreme life of faith. He was tempted in all things as you are, ** **, yet without sin. When Satan tempted Him in the wilderness, Jesus’ reply each time was the expression of trust in His Father and My Word. Jesus would not bypass My will just to get food, or to test My protection or Lordship. He waited until I Myself supplied or protected or directed. He trusted Me implicitly, for everything and in everything.
My Divine Son Jesus, in the character of His human nature, was made perfect through suffering. In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for Whom and through Whom everything exists, should make the Author of their salvation perfect through suffering. He learned obedience through suffering. Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from what He suffered and, once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him. Jesus My Son was totally obedient to God His Father…the very point of Adam’s failure and sin…even unto death, a death on the cross! And having taken upon Himself a human nature, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death…even death on a cross! He also set for you the pattern for suffering…and to this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps. Therefore, precious child, since Christ My Son has suffered in the flesh, arm yourself also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has turned his back on sin, and no longer has any desire to keep on sinning. From now on then, ** **, you must live the rest of your Earthly life controlled by God’s will and not by your human desires.
Child of God! My Divine Son Jesus, being consecrated and perfected through suffering, has consecrated the way of suffering for all My children to pass through unto Glory. Have you never understood and fully embraced the truth that the sufferings I allow to touch your life are not only necessary and unavoidable…they are hereby made honorable, useful, and your same pathway to Glory as My Own beloved Son? Now if we are children, then we are heirs…heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
My beloved child…it is fitting that My children must follow the same route and receive the same reward that My Divine Son Jesus did. In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for Whom and through Whom everything exists, should make the Author of our salvation perfect through suffering. Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from what He suffered and, once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps.
Beloved…you walk along that Path and enter through that Gate that opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary and the Holy of Holies solely and only by faith. The way into My promised rest is through your unwavering child-like trust in Me, your unreserved child-like dependence upon Me, and your unquestioning child-like obedience to, and acceptance of, My will. What was it that enabled My Divine Son Jesus to endure the cross? It was His faith that enabled Him to endure. Have this same mind, then, in you that was in Christ Jesus My Son: For the joy set before Him…the joy of seeing sinners saved; the joy of reconciling sinners back to God; the joy of restoring your relationship with God that had been severed by sin; the joy of repairing that mirror of the Almighty that God intended for you to be, that had been shattered by sin…He willingly endured the cross with a joyful acceptance of the Father’s will [not just a determined resignation to do the Father’s will], heedless of its shame. [Heb 12:2]
My beloved child…why are you bewildered by the fiery trial that has come upon you, as though some strange thing has happened to you? Don’t you yet understand that I Myself have Personally allowed it to touch your life…and for My Own good purpose? Knowing that I have Personally allowed these adversities to touch your life…why, then, are you frightened? Why are you downcast; why so vexed? Do you still have no faith? Are you still unwilling to trust with an unwavering child-like trust in My unfailing Love for you, and in My absolute Sovereignty over all Creation?
Consider it pure joy, my child, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. Moreover, be full of joy even now; exult and triumph in your troubles and rejoice in your sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith…of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire…may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Christ Jesus My Son is revealed. Therefore, do not become discouraged and lose heart. Though your outer man is progressively decaying and wasting away, yet your inner self is being progressively renewed day after day. For your light, momentary afflictions… these slight distresses of the passing hour… are ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for you an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent Glory and blessedness never to cease! Therefore, fix your attention, not on things of the physical realm that are seen, but on things of the spiritual realm that are unseen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
So then, ** **, whenever you suffer because it is God’s will for you, should by your good actions trust yourself completely to your Creator, for I always keep My promise. You are regarded favorably in the sight of God if you endure the pain of unjust suffering. After all, what kind of glory is there in it if, when you do wrong and are punished for it, you take it patiently? But if you bear patiently with suffering which results when you do right and that is undeserved, it is acceptable and pleasing to God. For even to this were you called. Christ My Son also suffered for you, leaving you His Personal example, so that you should follow in His footsteps. Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when you have stood the test, you will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Me. This, then, is to be your attitude…the same that was in Christ Jesus My Son…in any of the trials I allow you to face: Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, YET WILL I REJOICE IN THE LORD…I WILL BE JOYFUL IN GOD MY SAVIOR. The Sovereign Lord is my strength. He makes my feet like hinds feet; He gives me strength and courage, enabling me to walk upon my high places…places of trouble and suffering and responsibility.
My precious child…it is well-pleasing to Me when you have a joyful acceptance of My will because of suffering. Your joy is in knowing that I am working and accomplishing a special blessing through You, with you, and in you…through the suffering I have allowed to touch your life. You need to understand, and fully embrace, that there is a direct connection between the suffering and the joy…a connection of cause and effect: because of this suffering that I have willed for you to experience [cause], you are filled with joy [effect]…a joyful expectation, an excited anticipation of the blessing I have laid aside for you. Your present suffering is the means through which you will receive a great blessing; in other words…no suffering, no blessing. You need to fully embrace the truth that the particular blessing I have for you can only be appropriated through the particular suffering I have ordained for you.
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!
60 DAY PRAYER JOURNEY
Wednesday, June 8th, was the launch date of our 40 Day Prayer Journey, now continuing for another 20 days:
What is it that you are asking the Lord to do for you? What are the specific blessings you are praying for?
Personal revival. Revival begins in one’s own heart. The prayer journey is a consecration of my heart to God, pleading with Him to bring revival, and to begin with me:
- Longing for God…an ever deeper, more intimate, personal relationship with Him.
- Hunger and thirst for personal holiness in my heart, manifested in living out my everyday life.
- Seeking to keep on being continually filled with the Holy Spirit.
This is the entire focus for the prayer journey over these forty days. It is intensely personal in nature, a heart-cry to God to touch my life by His Spirit, and work a deep change in me. You may have this blessed assurance: you will never be the same again!
The hour in worship and prayer each day is not a time for intercession for family members, friends, co-workers, or church family. Do that at another time. If you get lost in intercession for others during this hour of prayer, you will have lost the reason for, and purpose of, this prayer journey. My heart longs to be inflamed with yearning for God alone…to pour out my soul, my life, my all for Him!
Preparation: Following is an example of a format for the daily hour of prayer during the Prayer Journey, to provide guidance on how a participant might effectively approach it. The prayer journey is so intensely personal, however, that within this framework each individual will need to give the Holy Spirit free reign to lead and guide you in the way He alone knows is best for you.

Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Destruction of America: Preparation Of The Way For The Antichrist
- News article: STARNES: Our nation is once again being fundamentally transformed. Pay attention, America. Biden Using Tax Dollars to Fund Atheist Missionaries. If the Left is able to remove God from the public square, shut down our churches and neutralize Christian influence in the culture, it paves the way for the godless communists to take over our nation. Americans rightly discern this as a part of the broader effort on the part of the Biden Administration to promote radical, progressive orthodoxy abroad and highlighted that atheism is an integral part of the belief system of Marxism and communism.
The Biden Administration recently announced plans to fund a program that would send Americans to promote atheism and humanism in South/Central Asia, North Africa and the Middle East. The program would be funded by your tax dollars…as much as a half million dollars per organization.
The idea that our tax dollars are being used to convert people to a godless, heathen lifestyle is appalling. It’s just one more piece of the puzzle…as radical elements within our nation seek to undermine the religious foundation of our nation. This is part of a much broader plan to destroy the Christian nature of our nation. A few weeks ago, the United States Embassy in Germany erected a ‘Black Lives Matter’ flag. Americans should be very alarmed at this. Other recent initiatives of the State Department include creating a ‘Special Representative for Racial Equity and Justice,’ whose mission will be to spread Critical Race Theory and other progressive dogmas worldwide, and working to remove restrictions on abortion around the globe.”
- Presentation: Dr. Mercola: Spain Admits Spraying “Chemtrails” as Part of Secret UN Program. In short, Planet Today reported, “The Spanish government ordered the military to quietly spray lethal chemtrails on its citizens with UN authorization under the cover of the ‘state of emergency for the management of the health crisis situation caused by Covid-19, and it’s not the first time they’ve done so.
A Royal Decree published April 16, 2020, by the Spanish government declared a state of emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic, authorizing the use of biocide chemicals. The decree granted the minister of health, Salvador Illa Roca, the authority to dictate said orders. In addition to acknowledging that the Ministry of Health had been evaluating the virucidal capacity of antiseptics and chemical disinfectants, the government order also details the intended application of the chemicals, which is via “aerial” techniques, not manual application.
Additionally, in 2015 four whistleblowers from Spain’s meteorological agency told the European Parliament that chemicals were regularly being sprayed over the country to alter the climate. Large-scale manipulation of the Earth’s climate, known as geoengineering, is becoming increasingly mainstream. The United Nations is among those now considering a controversial form of geoengineering, involving spraying sulfate aerosols into the Earth’s stratosphere in order to modify climate…with unknown, and potentially disastrous, effects.
Bill Gates is heavily invested in geoengineering techniques. As Vandana Shiva, Ph.D. explained in our past interview, weather modification via geoengineering could be used as a weapon of control, including control of agriculture. Writing in The Defender, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. also warned that Gates’ forays into climate control could easily be a guise for social control: “His investment history suggests that the climate crisis, for Gates and his cronies, is no more than an alibi for intrusive social control, ‘Great Reset’-scale surveillance, and massive science fiction geoengineering boondoggles, including his demented and terrifying vanity projects to spray the stratosphere with calcium chloride or seawater to slow warming, to deploy giant balloons to saturate our atmosphere with reflective particles to blot out the sun, or his perilous gambit of releasing millions of genetically modified mosquitoes in South Florida.”
- Presentation: Dr. Mercola: $1 Billion Brainwashing Scandal, CIA’s Dirty Little Secret. How the Media Secretly Carries Out Assignments for the CIA. The “anti-disinformation” industry has nothing to do with protecting a gullible public from information that might cause them to make bad or unhealthy choices. It’s about creating and directing a narrative for the purpose of controlling the population and hiding truths that might overthrow the ruling cabal and its plans for a one world government. It is designed to promote radical ideas that bring us closer to The Great Reset…which is based on a technocratic economic system.
Most of the organizations claiming to promote truth and counter disinformation are in fact doing the exact opposite. The latest and most blatant example of this was the Biden Administration’s “Ministry of Truth”…the Disinformation Governance Board, set up by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
‘Conspiracy Theorist’ Is a Propaganda Smear. Calling someone a ‘conspiracy theorist’ is a strategy aimed at silencing dissent in general and truth in particular, plain and simple. Belittling people and making them look silly, stupid, ignorant, gullible or incompetent are classic attack strategies by propagandists who don’t really have a leg to stand on otherwise. Over the past two years, the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” have become household terms for anything and everyone who doesn’t agree with whatever crazy story the media claim to be fact. Few seem to realize that in using these terms, they’ve fallen for the oldest propaganda methods there is: When you can’t argue with the facts, just attack the person delivering them.
In terms of health, COVID-19 reporting has taken censorship and media manipulation to brand new heights, eclipsing just about all previous propaganda efforts. They don’t even hide the bias anymore. When it comes to the COVID jab, for example, we know the U.S. government spent $1 billion on a media campaign to build public confidence in, and uptake of, the injections using mainstream news outlets. In return for that paycheck, media rabidly lashed out at anyone who questioned the unsupported claim that the shots were “safe and effective” as either a crazy conspiracy theorist, an ignorant science-denier, a dangerous misinformation agent with a personal profit motive, a domestic terrorist hell-bent on maximizing the death toll, or all four. All the while, media never actually countered the data showing the narrative was riddled with holes and contradictory at its face.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
Just as God raised up a remnant of just 1% of all the men Gideon had marshaled to fight against the Midianites, even so there is a holy remnant whom God is raising up for Himself in these Last Days…a Godly remnant of the 1% of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. Sadly, we have very few Christian leaders and pastors throughout our Nation who would even qualify by these standards. The few that have done so stand alone and unsupported by their fellow pastors and leaders; they are cowards…afraid to speak out and stand steadfast and immovable with Christ…fearing societies harsh criticism and persecution. Bonhoeffer…renowned Pastor, theologian, and martyr in Nazi Germany…proclaimed: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil; God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Christ Jesus our Lord said quite clearly, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed My teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of My Name, for they do not know the One Who sent Me. [John 15:18-21]
Even so, in the places that are most corrupt, and in the ages that are most degenerate, there is a remnant which God reserves to Himself, and which still hold fast their integrity and stand fair for the honour of delivering the land, as the innocent are said to do. Christians across our Nation are called to stand steadfast and immovable with Christ. We are called to pledge our allegiance to the Lamb…to be faithful and true no matter the cost. Jesus said, “When the Son of Man returns, will He find any with unwavering faith on the Earth?” [Luke 18:8] Let it be that we are among those counted part of the remnant that Jesus will turn to and say, “Yes…there is faith.” I especially sense the need as a watchman to warn the people of God to prepare NOW for the severe persecution that will come upon each one of us…to count the cost, and be willing to pay the price, of standing steadfast and immovable with Christ. We must not bow down to the tyrant’s golden image: Our God is able to deliver us from your fiery furnace, O king; but even if He chooses not to…even so, we will not serve your gods or bow down to the golden image you have set before us. [Dan 3:18] We must not shrink back: My righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him. [Heb 10:38] We must not compromise: Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. [Josh 24:15]
End Times Of Biblical Prophesy
Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…7th part of a new weekly 10 sermon series by Dr. David Jeremiah…proving that we are currently living in the End Times prophesied in Scripture. I will be posting all the messages in this series as they are presented. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching these video presentations.
Sunday 10/31: Cancel Culture…A Political Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
The Bible warns there will be the Anti-christ…a man who proclaims to be God…who will unite the world in a one world government, with a one world financial system, and establish a one world religion.
While we cannot predict “the day or the hour,” when you put all these components together, it’s starting to look even now a lot like the beginnings of the End Times.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name! [Revelation 13:16-17]
- The vaccine mandate with its “VACCINE PASSPORT/DIGITAL ID,” without which you won’t be able to buy or sell…your kids won’t be able to attend school, you will not be allowed to go to work, or go into any store or facility open to the public, or travel anywhere, or attend any sporting events or live entertainment, or to enter movie theaters, or do anything…is the forerunner of, and preparation for, the mark of the Beast.
- The GLOBAL RESET with its one world government and one world financial system…now being ushered in through the on-going destruction of the Constitutional Republic of America which stood in the way of the principles and dictates of the Anti-christ…is the preparation of the way for the coming rule and reign of the Anti-christ.
1] 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 4th & 5th one [two in the one dream]. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour.
- Data Dream: Fried circuits in cities crashing; clouds of smoke…like smoke signals. Then continuing on East to Philadelphia,
[4th] under the Liberty bell, and then an explosion. The Liberty Bell cracked in half, the 2 pieces laying on the rounded side on the ground. The intense heat began melting them; they could never be put back together again.
[5th] Circuits reach Capitol Bldg. explode; Capitol Bldg cracked in half. Figure in white [Holy Spirit] standing at podium where Presidents give State of Union address: “A house divided against itself SHALL NOT STAND.” Then He walks to rear exit door, and flips the entire panel of light switches, one by one, until all the lights were out. https://youtu.be/ydpIwdhnucQ
Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…as they are even now…the people of the world learn righteousness. Though God shows grace to the wicked, even so, they still do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. [Luke 21:26; Isa 26:10]
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6] Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
I love my Country; I grew up here, and worked here, and enjoyed the freedoms we were given here. Even so…this Country is no longer the Country I grew up in. It has become something else…something totally different, something strange and foreign to me. We are a Nation no longer under the rule and Authority of God, and as a result so horribly transformed from what our Founding Fathers envisioned and birthed. Once a great and respected Christian Nation, God has made us the laughingstock of the world. This is what the Sovereign Lord said to Moses concerning the Israelites, and our Nation’s founding fathers warned it would apply to America as well: If you disobey the Lord your God and do not faithfully keep all His commands and laws that I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you in accordance with God’s solemn resolve to punish you as you deserve for disobeying Him.
Cursed shall you be in the city and
cursed shall you be in the field.
Cursed shall you be when you come in and
cursed shall you be when you go out.
The Lord will send upon you curses…calamitous events such as fires, floods, earthquakes, or pestilence that happen suddenly with a huge loss of life.
He will bring confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking Him. [Deut 15-16, 19-20]
Presented below is what it looks like…utter chaos…when God has determined by His Own Divine Decree to destroy a Nation, as He has America. Here is what a Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship looks like as it continues to unilaterally shut down, trample over, and shred our every constitutional right that stands in its way.
Make no mistake about it…God Himself has Personally judged our Nation with utter destruction, by His Own Divine Decree. Man did not do this; God didn’t just allow this to happen, He determined it to happen. Just as He did not allow Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed, or allow the world to be destroyed by a Great Flood…He Personally caused it.
We are plunging into a deep and very dark abyss in American history, at warp speed! A new Democrat reign of terror is upon us, utterly obliterating our Constitutional Republic, free speech, free press, political playing field, and our personal liberty! We need to be fully aware of what is taking place in our Nation in order to know how to be prepared as ministers of the Lord during these End Times.
God has determined by Divine decree that our Nation will be destroyed. “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat! Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.” God has Personally stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22] He has caused their thinking to become utterly confused…just as He had warned…so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation! You see it unfolding before your very eyes every day! The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused. [Deut 28:28]
Destruction of America
Brethren…you need to watch this Pastor Dana prophetic dream concerning ominous events that will take place during December, and January. We see all of these things being foreshadowed even now in our everyday news…
Baltic Dry Index dead…no movement of goods, no global trade; ships anchored in ports, nothing moving at sea;
people standing for hours on long food lines;
Nationwide power outages;
people being housed in shelters;
market crashes and yields lost;
Great sadness throughout the land; people seemed very dazed and very confused;
Depression as a creature, choking people, pushing them down;
God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation:
- Perhaps God is now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid, or severe food shortages resulting from cargo ships stranded unloaded in our harbors…I don’t know; I can’t answer that. Even so…This is where I continue to stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place.
And so I continue to encourage you…Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take placeso as to not be overwhelmed by a severe scarcity of goods, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression!
You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. [Phil 2:14-16] We have been raised up by the Lord for such a time as this!
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6] Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Beloved…I still hold to these words of warning from the Holy Spirit: “Brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things. Ready or not, Nation, here it comes! Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength. Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm! Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end.”
[Ezekiel 14:12-23: excerpts from Matthew Henry’s Commentary] National sins bring National judgments. When virtue is ruined and laid waste every thing else will soon be ruined and laid waste too: When the land sins against Me, when vice and wickedness become epidemical, when the land sins by trespassing grievously, when the sinners have become very numerous and their sins very heinous, when gross impieties and immoralities universally prevail [as has long since been the case now in our own Nation; we have way out-sinned Sodom and Gomorrah], then will I stretch forth My hand upon it, for the punishment of it. The Divine Power shall be vigorously and openly exerted; the judgments shall be extended and stretched forth to all the corners of the land, to all the concerns and interests of the nation. Grievous sins bring grievous plagues.
Even so, in the places that are most corrupt, and in the ages that are most degenerate, there is a remnant which God reserves to Himself, and which still hold fast their integrity and stand fair for the honour of delivering the land, as the innocent are said to do [Job 22:30] However, when the sin of a people has come to its height, and the Divine decree has gone forth for their ruin, the piety and prayers of the best men shall not prevail with God to end the controversy. We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were there, they wouldn’t be able to save their own sons or daughters! They alone would be saved by their own righteousness. When My judgments come upon the Earth…when I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or when I command locusts to devour the land [as happened last year in Kenya] or when I send a plague among my people [as is happening even now worldwide]…the people of the world learn righteousness. [Ezek 14:13, 19, 20; Isa 26:10]
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/, and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
Revelation 4:1-11 [NIV; amplification in italics]
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in Heaven…the doorway opened for the ascension of the raptured saints! And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet, which sounding is the signal by which His elect are to be gathered from the four winds, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this…after the dispensation of this present church-age, represented by the seven selected churches, has run its course and the order of things to which they belong has come to its final conclusion.” At that time, with the summoning of the voice of the archangel, the dead saints shall rise from the dust; the living saints, in a moment…in the twinkling of an eye… are changed; and both together are rapt up far above the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, long before He is seen by the inhabitants of the Earth. Thus will the saints be kept from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who remain…those whose hearts were preoccupied with the things of Earth rather than their heart’s desire a continual longing after a heavenly citizenship. From the safety of their home in Heaven, they will witness the terrible judgment plagues and sorrows inflicted upon the Earth that will take place after their rapture.
At once I was caught up in the Spirit, and there before me was a majestic, awe-filled Throne being set in place in Heaven, marking the beginning of a new dispensation, with someone sitting on it…the Triune God Himself! And the One Who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, insufferably brilliant…as a pure, purple, fiery, red, crystalline, consuming fire…flashing with a blazing light of awesome Glory! A rainbow, standing as the token of God’s covenant with all flesh and resembling an emerald… a soft, beaming emerald of promise and hope…mercy remembered in wrath…salvation over-spanning the appearance of consuming fire… encircled the Throne. Surrounding the Throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders, representing all the thousands upon thousands who have been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, having been gathered out of the tribes and peoples of all the Earth. They were now resurrected and glorified objects of grace, dressed in white…the white robes of the righteousness of the saints…and had crowns of gold on their heads…the crowns of righteousness promised by the Lord…befitting their office as priests and kings in glory. From the Throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder, heralding the wrath and judgment that is about to proceed from it. Before the Throne, seven lamps were blazing forth as torches of fire the flaming indignation of the wrath of God, harbingers of that Day of Judgment in which the Earth will burn as an oven. These are the seven spirits of God in all His plenitude. Also before the Throne there was what looked like a sea of solid, transparent glass, clear as crystal and full of inexpressible beauty and splendor.
In the center, around the Throne, were four living creatures…likewise, along with the elders, representing those redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, having also been gathered out of the tribes and peoples of all the Earth, whose still higher office and distinction is to share the Throne with their Divine Redeemer as His ministers and as executors of His will throughout the unfolding eternal ages…and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle, for the reason that they are the Heavenly powers that guard and cover the camp of the Lord which, under them, the entire world is to become subject. They are those certain preeminent classes of the eclectic resurrection and translation, in the exact position which angels held in other dispensations. Each of the four living creatures had six wings, being angelic, now, as to their form of existence, and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings, denoting their intense intelligence and ability to direct their ways and administrations with unlimited penetration and discretion. Day and night they never stop expressing the Holiness and Glory of the Lord God Almighty, saying:
“Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come!”
Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to Him Who sits on the Throne and Who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him Who sits on the Throne, and worship Him Who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the Throne, giving glory, honor and power to the Almighty maker of Heaven and Earth, and say:
“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for You created all things,
and by Your will they were created
and have their very being!” [Revelation 4:1-11]
Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:
- Revelation 13:16-20
He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark.The mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations. His number is 666.
Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.
First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.
The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.
And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.
Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration. The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit. And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!
- Revelation 14:9-12
A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb! And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever! There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!”This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
- Revelation 14:17-20
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple,“Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
“Mystery Babylon” in the Book of Revelation is America [Rev 17:5], and the prophesy written by John is the utter destruction of America. We are the End Times Nation, the 7th and last of the great world powers throughout history that God has determined to utterly destroy. Six have already been destroyed: Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, and Rome. The destruction of America will now usher in the Great Tribulation and the Anti-christ. America has stood in the way of the Anti-christ, and now God, by His Own Divine Decree, has removed and destroyed our Nation…for obvious good reason…and to usher in the End Times of Biblical prophecy.
These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. [1 Cor 10:11; Rom 15:4] For the time has arrived for judgment, and it must begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the Gospel of God? Since judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News! If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners? Behold, since the uncompromisingly righteous are rewarded on Earth, one can be certain that the wicked and the sinner will also receive what they deserve. [1 Peter 4:17-18; Prov 11:31]
See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears My Name; why, then, would you think you will escape punishment? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all the inhabitants of the Earth, declares the Lord Almighty. Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them:
The Lord will roar from on high; He will thunder from His holy dwelling and roar mightily against His land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on the Earth. The tumult will resound to the ends of the Earth, for the Lord will bring charges against the nations; He will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword, declares the Lord. This is what the Lord Almighty says: Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the Earth. [Jer 25:29-32]
This is what the Most Holy, Most High, Triune God declares:
The Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire. Since everything on the Earth will be destroyed in this way, you ought to live a holy and godly life as you look forward to the coming Day of the Lord! Everyone who has this hope purifies himself, just as He is pure. So, beloved, since you are expecting these things to happen, be eager to be found by Him at His coming living a pure and blameless life and at peace…in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts. Let me warn you therefore, beloved, that knowing these things beforehand, you should be on your guard, lest you be carried away by the error of lawless and wicked persons. I don’t want you to lose your own secure footing. But grow in the special favor and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He Who called you is Holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am Holy.” [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him. [Matt 24:36-39, 42-44]
“Behold”, says the Lord Jesus in His last warning for the last opportunity offered to mankind to be among His redeemed, “I come for the last time like a thief in the night to gather those who would be among the elect! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, in watchfulness, prayer and readiness for the summons when it comes, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed, eternally without remedy.”
Morning by morning He dispenses His justice, and every new day He does not fail. Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! She obeys no one; she accepts no correction! She does not trust in the Lord; she does not draw near to her God. Its leaders are like roaring lions hunting for their victims. Its judges are like ravenous wolves at evening time, who by dawn have left no trace of their prey. Her prophets are arrogant liars seeking their own gain; they are treacherous men. Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law. Even so, the Lord within her is righteous; He does no wrong. Yet the wicked, without conscience and without shame, persist in doing evil. I, the Lord, have wiped out many nations, devastating their fortress walls and towers. Their streets are now deserted; their cities lie in silent ruin. There are no survivors…none at all. I thought, Surely they will have reverence for Me now! Surely they will listen to My warnings and accept My discipline and correction. Then I won’t need to strike again, destroying their homes nor visit all my punishments upon her. But no, they get up early to continue their evil deeds!
Therefore earnestly wait for Me, says the Lord, for the day when I rise up to the attack as accuser and judge! For My decision and determination and right it is to gather the nations together, to assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, even all the heat of My fierce anger; for in that day all the Earth shall be consumed with the fire of My jealous anger! [Zeph 3:1-8]
Wisdom shouts in the streets. She cries out in the public square. She calls to the crowds along the main street, to those gathered in front of the city gate: How long, you simpletons, will you insist on being simpleminded? How long will you mockers relish your mocking? How long will you fools hate knowledge? If only you would turn and repent and give heed to my reproof, behold, I will pour out My Spirit upon you, I will make My words known to you. I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come. I reached out to you, but you paid no attention. You ignored My advice, rejected the correction I offered, and would accept none of My reproof.
Therefore I will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic…when your panic comes as a storm and desolation and calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. When you cry for help, I will not answer. Though you anxiously search for Me, you will not find Me. Because you hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord. You rejected My advice and counsel, and despised all My reproof. Therefore you shall eat of the fruit of your own way and be satiated with your own devices. For simpletons turn away from Me…even unto their death. Fools are destroyed by their own self-confident complacency. But all who listen to Me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm. [Prov 1:20-33]
We have conveniently chosen to ignore the lessons of God’s judgment of destruction on every great empire throughout history…Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Rome…and now in our present day we have totally forgotten the lessons God has been trying to teach America over the years. Our godlessness has only and continually escalated through the years; we’ve sinned far worse than our ancestors EVER did! We are far more wicked than they EVER were! God has therefore determined by His Own Divine decree to destroy our Nation….and for obvious good reason! Brothers and sisters…IT IS FINISHED!
Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath against your enemies has passed. For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity. The Earth will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt. They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21] How long, Sovereign Lord, Holy and True, until you judge the inhabitants of the Earth and avenge our blood? [Rev 6:10]
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near! And so, my brothers and sisters, first of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of Creation.”
Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing. Tell the people, This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it. Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: The time has come for every prophecy of Mine to be fulfilled! [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. God’s holy remnant is called to a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our Forerunner. You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anyone & all others, and for anything & all else this world has to offer. Obedience is what characterizes the life of My child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night. You are called to a life of obedience. Obedience is better than sacrifice; rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as evil as worshiping idols. [1 Sam 15:22,23]
Wherefore brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by the way which He dedicated for us…a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of His flesh…let us then without further hesitation or delay draw nigh in fullness of faith; here let us continually abide in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10:19-20, 22] Those who abide in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [PS 91:1]
Friends, brothers and sisters, this is our Lord’s exhortation…
Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:
- Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church. The current ongoing persecution of the Church and of Christians is going to escalate exponentially; it is going to get MUCH WORSE.
- Pray for the cleansing of the corruption in the Church. God is going to expose and purge corruption within His Church, and separate the wheat from the chaff…separate His True church from the apostate churches that no longer belong to Him. He is going to expose false prophets and teachers, and wolves dressed in sheep clothing pretending to be shepherds.
These are the days of the separation of the wheat from the chaff. But also in those days there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves. They preach prosperity, wealth, and health; good times, and all is well. From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit. They dress the wound of My people as though it were not serious. “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush! They will subtly and cleverly teach their destructive heresies about God, even denying the Sovereign Lord Who bought them. Theirs will be a swift and terrible end.
Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of them, Christ and His true way will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies and cunning arguments to get hold of your money. With eyes full of adultery, their lust is never satisfied. They make a game of beguiling and luring unstable people into sin. They train themselves to be greedy; they are doomed and cursed. But God condemned them long ago, and their eternal misery is on the way.
The word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: Hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing! Your prophets, O Israel, are like jackals among ruins. You have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the Day of the Lord. Their visions are false and their divinations a lie. They say, “The Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them; yet they expect their words to be fulfilled. Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken? Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord. My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. [Jer 6:13-15; 2 Peter 2:1-3, 14; Ezek 13:1-9]
- Pray for a Great Harvest. It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere. Jesus said to them, “Go throughout the whole world and preach the good news of the Gospel to everyone, everywhere. With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me. [Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47]
And now, Lord God Almighty…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who sow in tears, invoking the Lord of the Harvest, will reap with songs of Joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying bountiful sheaves from the harvest with him! [Ps 126:3-6]
Arise My bride, and prepare for battle
There is going to be severe Satanic, demonic attacks against God’s holy remnant of committed, uncompromising, steadfast Christians, pastors, and leaders [not the lukewarm], and against marriages, families, and children. There is going to be severe attacks and intense persecution coming from pretending “Christians” within the church, against pastors who preach the uncompromised Word of God. For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching for something self-pleasing and gratifying, they will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. [2 Tim 4:3-5]
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. [Matt 24:10-14]
Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. [Rev 12:12]
Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face
Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.
Then the angel said to me, “Write this down: Blessed are those summoned to the marriage banquet of the Lamb…all true believers who are members of His Universal Church. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with Power and great Glory. And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect…God’s holy people…from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.” And he said to me further, “These are the True Words of God.” [Rev 19:9]
Blessed Jesus…I rejoice and shout triumphantly for joy! I celebrate and ascribe to You glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb draws near, and Your bride, the Universal Church and each of her members, has been preparing herself and has made herself ready! [Rev 19:7] Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! For our Lord God, Sovereign All-Ruler, reigns! Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him Glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready. The finest linen, dazzling and white, was given her to wear. Then the angel said to me, “Write: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage banquet of the Lamb!” [John…Rev 19:6-9; Luke 14:15-23]
The washing of one’s robes and the keeping of one’s garments relates to this very attitude and habit of looking for the return of Christ as an imminent event. Brethren, as you hope to walk those golden streets, and eat of those immortal fruits, see to it that you have your garments clean and your loins girded about like unto men waiting for their Lord. [Seiss…Rev 21:9-22:5]
Then the king said to his servants, “The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.” So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding garment. “Friend,” he asked, “How did you come in here without putting on the appropriate wedding garment?” The man was speechless. Then the king told the attendants, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are invited and summoned, but few are chosen.” [Matt 22:8-14]
ENDURE TO THE END
Behold, I am coming quickly. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…I will make a pillar in the Sanctuary of My God. Never again will you leave it. I will write on you the name of My God and you will be a citizen in the city of My God…the new Jerusalem…which will come down out of Heaven from My God; I will also write on you My Own new name.
