Brothers and sisters in Christ…
For those who had been wholeheartedly engaged in our Prayer Journey that ended on August 6th, it will now become for you a launching pad…if it hasn’t done so already…into experiencing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon your life. Now we have turned our focus on a 31 day Journey of Faith, ever deeper into the depths of God, having begun on August 17th, and ending on September 16th. May this journey richly bless you!
JOURNEY OF FAITH
Reflections: Day Twenty-six
Abba Father…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.
IN HOLY EXPECTANCY
Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. [Mic 7:7]
My beloved child…waiting for the answer to prayer, or for the answer to your special petitions, is not the whole of waiting, only a part…but an important part in which your waiting must be very definitely in the confident assurance, “My God will hear me.” A holy, joyful expectation, an excited anticipation, is the very essence of true waiting. And here is the one great petition which ought to be the chief thing the heart of My child seeks for itself…that the life of God in your soul may have full sway; that Christ My Son may be fully formed within you, and that you may be filled to all the fullness of God. May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His Glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in your inner self by His Indwelling Holy Spirit. May Christ, through your faith, in blessed reality dwell in your heart! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth of His Love; that you may truly come to know through personal experience the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge about Him; that you may be entirely filled unto all the fullness of the Divine Presence of God within you! [Eph 3:16-19] This is what I, your God and Father, have promised!
Even so, ** **, I Myself must work it in you, and for this end your working must cease. This is My work, not yours; the results belong to Me, not to you. You must fully embrace how entirely it is to be faith in the operation of God Who raised Christ My Son from the dead…just as much as the Resurrection, the perfecting of My life in your soul is to be directly My work. And waiting has to become more than ever a tarrying before God in stillness of soul, counting upon Me Who raises the dead, and calls the things that are not as though they were. Everything that is salvation, everything that is good and holy, must be the direct mighty work of God Myself within you. Every moment of your life in My will must be the immediate operation of God. And the one thing you need to do is this: to look to the Lord with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence; to wait for the God of your salvation with a holy expectancy; to hold fast the confident assurance with a joyful expectation, an excited anticipation; “My God will most assuredly hear me.”
“Be still, and know that I am God.” In your fellowship with My Divine Son Jesus in His death and burial, in death to self with its own will and wisdom, death to your own strength and energy, there is rest. As you cease from self, and your soul becomes still before God, I will arise and reveal Myself. In Christ My Son, in His death, and in His life, in His perfected redemption, your soul may be still, and your God and Father will indeed come in, and take possession, and I will do My perfect work. Child of God! Be thou still before God, and wait upon Me!
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 to 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!
I want to share a personal testimony to illustrate how during the course of my everyday life 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. After the Lord had miraculously raised my mother off her death-bed in July 2004…just as He had told me three times He was going to do, “I am going to raise up your mother” [Divine Miracle: https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/04/25/divine-miracle/],
in Fall 2006 I began asking Him about purchasing a home of my own here in Florida. As I began diligently searching, my continual request before the Lord was, “Please show me plainly, clearly, beyond the shadow of any doubt whether I am to do this and, if so, which one You would have me purchase.” That prayer was the intense desire of my heart; I was asking for the confirmation of the Holy Spirit before proceeding with doing anything at all.
By December I had screened out [on paper] literally hundreds of condominium units, and after personally looking at three that seemed most suitable, one stood out as the best by far. So I began inquiring of the Lord, “How will I know whether this is the one You would have me purchase? I need to be sure beyond the shadow of any doubt.” I was determined not to proceed unless I had a clear confirmation from the Spirit. It was during my times of intense inquiry before the Lord that He told me the exact price I was to offer for this condo unit…unrealistically low, and which was 20% below an already reasonably low offering price!
The usual real estate game was on, the seller counter-offering a lower price, yet still significantly higher than mine. I really liked that particular condo unit, but in obedience to the Lord I held fast to the exact price He told me to offer. The seller continued counter-offering even lower prices but, much to their exasperation, I did not budge! Finally, they made a “final offer”…just a token $2,000 higher than my original offer! I really struggled with that, and was sorely tempted to accept it. I agonized before the Lord because I liked that condo unit very much, and it was a great price…but He gave me no freedom to accept their offer. Finally, in absolute surrender to the leading of the Holy Spirit, I held fast. I had gotten to the place of unquestioning child-like obedience, realizing that the only way I would really know if it was the Lord’s will that I purchase this property was to hold fast to the exact price He told me to offer. It no longer mattered to me whether I lost this opportunity or not; all that really mattered was that my heart remain lovingly and joyfully joined with His will. The seller was both exasperated and furious…but reluctantly agreed to my offer! I now had the confident assurance that this was indeed where the Holy Spirit was placing me to be!
Lord God Almighty…You are glorious in Your Majesty, majestic in Holiness, awesome in Power, You are our wonder-working God. You do whatsoever You will with the powers of Heaven and Earth. You call the things that are not just as though they are. You merely speak, and it is done; the very words You speak carry within themselves the power to effect what You have spoken…immediately, completely, continually. 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!
My brothers and sisters in Christ…living in the Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit is the entire focus of the 31 day Journey of Faith into the Holy of Holies. It is intensely personal in nature…a heart-cry to God to touch my life by His Spirit and work a deep change in me. Revival begins in my own heart. The Journey of Faith is a consecration of my heart to God, pleading with Him to bring revival, and to begin with me.
- What is it that I am actually calling on God to do when I ask, “Lord, send revival?” I am pleading with Him to pour out His Holy Spirit upon me…to bring a deep conviction of sin and to make me painfully and consciously aware of sin in my life. I am crying out for Him to impress me with a deep need for Godly sorrow, confession of sin, and repentance. I am asking from the depths of my soul that He create a pure heart within me…a heart that is inflamed with yearning to live out my everyday life in a purity, holiness, and righteousness of my own that comes from obedience to His Law…in every thought I think, every word I speak, in everything I do. I am telling Him that the deepest desire of my heart is to be holy as He is Holy; to be perfect as my Heavenly Father is perfect…just as He exhorts His children to be. And I am asking to be filled with His Holy Spirit…that His Spirit would become a fountain within me, welling up, flooding my soul with torrents of Living water, ever flowing, continually overflowing, spilling over, touching the lives of everyone with whom I come into contact…that the Name of Jesus would be glorified through me, with me, and in me…to the praise of His glorious grace!
- What can you fully expect God to do for you in answer to this cry of your heart? He will make you miserable over sin in your life that you have heretofore been careless, complacent, and indifferent about, and He will make you painfully and consciously aware of sins that your heart…being deceitful and desperately wicked that it is…has hidden from you. He will reprove His children, “Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded!” He will cause you to “Grieve, mourn and wail over your sins, and in true repentance change your laughter to tears of sorrow and your mirth to deep sadness as you grieve over your disloyalty!” And He will lovingly urge you, “Humble yourself before Me, and I will lift you up, encourage you, and help you!” [James 4:8-10] He will lead you to confession of sin and true repentance, and to have the same desire for purity, holiness, and righteousness in your life that He desires for all His children: “As the One Who called you is Holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. For it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am Holy;’” and, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” [1 Peter 1:15-16; Mt 5:48] He will grant you the desire of your heart for purity, holiness, and righteousness, because Christ Jesus assured you, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled” [Mt 5:6] He has assured me that my longing will be completely satisfied, and I will be filled up to the measure of all the fullness of God…to the richest measure of His unclouded Presence, a soul wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!
- There will be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon your life, according to His command, “Keep on continually being filled with the Spirit.” [Eph 5:18]
You will experience the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in your life…singing songs, hymns, and spiritual songs and making melody with your heart to God [v. 19].
You will experience prayer, in accordance with God’s will, moving the hand of God,
and you will experience the blessings that come from obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit in your life.
God will show you His Glory; you will see it with your own eyes, and you will thereby have occasion to testify to His great Name and mighty Power! Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God! [Mt 5:8] Hallelujah!
- 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…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] Hallelujah!
Are you prepared to go into the Garden that Jesus went to that night of His betrayal, and to walk along the path He walked? It is the path of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self. It is the path Jesus walked and the way which He Personally dedicated for us…a new and living way to God, through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of the flesh…my sin-enslaved human nature. It is the ONLY path that leads up to the Gate that opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary and into the Holy of Holies…into the inaccessible Light of the Glory of our Father’s unclouded Presence. The Gate bears on its header the inscription “THY WILL BE DONE.” No one can walk through that Gate without first checking his/her own will there with the gatekeeper in absolute and unconditional surrender.
Blessed Holy Spirit…I freely lay my life on the altar of sacrifice, giving You free reign over the course and direction of my life on Earth. As such, I no longer have any possessions of my own; all that I have belongs to You. I have no plans of my own; I am here solely and only, wholly and always, to do Your will. I have no privileges, no expectations, no rights, no honor; I am Your bond-servant.
My time belongs entirely to You; I have no desires of my own heart, no purposes of my own for my life. You are Lord of my life, and I live wholly surrendered to Your plans, Your purposes, Your will. All of my motives, my attitudes, my dispositions are subservient to You. Blessed Jesus…I have no attractions to the people of this world, nor the things this world has to offer, that compete with my attraction to You. You are the choicest, most precious treasure of my heart. I have no affections for the people of this world, nor the things this world has to offer, that compete with my affections for You. I have reserved for You alone my sweetest, most tender affections. I am wholly Yours, and You are wholly mine…wholly surrendered unto God, wholly given for the blessing and salvation of souls. My heart longs to be inflamed with yearning for God alone…to pour out my soul, my life, my all for You!
I plan to send out 31 reflections addressing different aspects of waiting upon God during the 31 days of our Journey of Faith. I trust in the Lord they will be a blessing to you!
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let this cry of your heart echo through the depths of your soul:
Let the Earth, and all that’s in it, Shout for joy to the LORD! I worship You, LORD, with gladness; I come before You with joyful songs! I Know that You alone, LORD, are God! You are the One Who made me, and I am Yours; we are Your people, the sheep of Your pasture. I enter Your gates with thanksgiving, Lord; I come into Your courts with praise! I thank You, and I praise Your Holy Name! For You, O LORD, are Good, and Your love endures forever; Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations. [Ps 100] Hallelujah!
FIRST OF ALL, before all else: Enter His gates with thanksgiving; come into His courts with praise!:
Through it all, through it all: Gaither
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.
Break up the fallow ground of your heart! Plant the good seeds of righteousness in your heart, and reap the blessings that your devotion to Me will produce. It is time for you to turn to Me, your Lord, and I will come and shower blessings of righteousness upon you. [Father God…Hos 10:12]
“Even now,” declares the Lord, “Return to Me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning. Rend your heart in deep sorrow, and not your garments! Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love; He is always ready to forgive and not punish.
If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” [Joel 2:12-13; 2 Chron 7:14-15]
Therefore, heed the warning of the Holy Spirit: “Today if you hear Jesus calling to you, do not harden your heart against Him. [Heb 3:7-8]
Brothers and Sisters in Christ…
Following is an article that explains clearly how what was once the Constitutional Republic of America is being covertly undermined and destroyed.
Presentation: News article: Biden’s quiet ‘Green New Deal’ in corporate America. When Environmental, Social, and Governance rating system takes hold, free markets do not exist. Two valuable lessons can be taken from over a year of living and working under a globalist-leaning government. First, the United States’ system of Constitutional Republicanism and free-market capitalism is under siege unlike at any other time in our history. Second, the Founding Father’s idea of federalism is more valuable today than ever before. These two lessons are best demonstrated in the Biden Administration’s new obsession: the Environmental, Social and Governance, or ESG, rating system.
- ESG is a political score created by social and environmental activists, the United Nations, European and global interests and now supported by many of the largest U.S. financial services companies. ESG measures how compliant an entity needing capital is to a subjective set of political factors.
- In theory, it is an investment strategy. In practice, it is an invisible fist that bypasses the legislative process to force a political agenda on society. It is the epitome of the saying, “He who has the gold makes the rules.”
- Therein lies the problem. ESG intermediates outside interests into the decisions of private corporations, and now even State and local governments, to coerce a pre-determined behavioral response. It is an effort that uses backdoor channels to implement public policy that could never make it through Congress because Americans would reject it. For example, the Green New Deal didn’t pass in Congress, but that didn’t stop those advocating its passage from pushing forward their radical agenda. They simply changed the forum from Congress to corporate America.
- ESG is more powerful than legislation because activists force behavior by cutting off necessary capital or insurance from disfavored companies and industries, or using their influence to cancel those who don’t comport with their politics.
- This is currently happening in Utah. The company that provides business insurance to a Utah-based power plant owned by cities in Utah and Nevada recently informed the company it will no longer insure the plant. The insurer has signed onto a “net zero” climate initiative originating in Europe. The insurance market for such power plants is highly consolidated, so there are not a lot of options.
- Why did the insurer decide to stop providing insurance? Because the power generated is derived from coal. If we follow this to its natural conclusion, insurance companies committed to “net zero” climate initiatives have declared war on citizens of our State through the implementation of economic sanctions. If this agenda is successful and the activists and NGOs behind these actions can convince all insurance providers to play along, which many of them have, power will be shut off to large portions of the population.
- ESG is coercive capitalism, the use of capital and insurance to drive a political agenda. S&P Global recently began publishing ESG ratings on States. The analysis includes ambiguous and open-ended categories such as how a State scores on “managing carbon,” “political unrest stemming from community and social issues” and “adverse publicity that results in reputational risk.” What other State historically has suffered more “adverse publicity…resulting in reputational risk” than Utah? Investors could point to an ESG rating and decide Utah is undeserving of the lowest market rates because we have the “wrong” policies. Beyond that, will we now have to coddle the press for fear of adverse publicity damaging our reputation and thereby hurting our borrowing costs?
- To our knowledge, such subjective criteria have not previously been factored into borrowing costs. Utah has methodically and carefully managed revenues and debts over decades to maintain the best credit rating in the world, which allows the State to borrow money at the lowest rates in the market and save taxpayer dollars on necessary infrastructure projects. But that may not matter if organizations like S&P continue to publish a subjective political rating that overrides a State’s or company’s financial credit rating.
- Regardless of which party holds your allegiance, we hope all Americans can see how dangerous this system of coercive capitalism is. As Americans, we have a history of rejecting tyrannical systems. Sadly, this covert version [of tyrannical systems] is wrapped in an agenda that sounds positive and needed. Even if one concludes that is the case, we hope reasonable people of all backgrounds will reject this Trojan horse designed to achieve political outcomes using economic force.
- Our ancestors left European monarchies, powerful elites, and State religions to found a system of individual freedom and equality. ESG represents the greatest threat to our American systems of Constitutional Republicanism and economic freedom in our lifetimes. We are not arguing against the ESG agenda; we are arguing against a system that uses economic coercion to achieve its own self-determined goals. Coercion and force without public accountability are antithetical to the American ethos.
- Those with a free-market perspective may be tempted to sit back and allow the markets to take care of the problem. Sadly, when ESG takes hold, free markets do not exist. That is because for ESG to be effective, it must drive large amounts of capital to act in the same unified coercive way. ESG takes the market out of the market.
- Insurance companies committed to “net zero” climate initiatives and backed by activists and global interests, along with the Biden Administration, would shut down a power plant in Utah…or any company in America for that matter. If all insurance companies that provide such policies to power systems think the same way, our system of free-market capitalism is in jeopardy, to say nothing of the costs borne by those whose power is shut off.
- This brings us to the wisdom of our Founding Fathers. The solution to this rapidly developing crisis may very well require the States to exercise their rights to reign in a federal government that has declared war on its citizens. The Founding Fathers understood, and intended, that States created the federal government, not the other way around. It will likely be the States that will have to stand up and save our nation from the tyrannical global elites pushing ESG.
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: What many still don’t realize is that the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic has little to do with the spread of an actual virus, and everything to do with the planned global takeover and implementation of a technocratic agenda known as The Great Reset. But this orchestrated “global response” is all part of their ‘soft indoctrination’ to get you used to a bleak and inhumane way of life.
- Eventually, your personal identification, medical records, finances, and who knows what else will all be tied together and embedded somewhere on or in your body…if you allow it. If you refuse to allow it, you will be ever increasingly prohibited from participating in society…work, school, shopping, travel, entertainment, etc. etc…until eventually you won’t be able to buy or sell at all without it. Make no mistake about this…this IS the forerunner of the Mark of the Beast. BRETHREN…YOU NEED TO READ THAT AGAIN.
Every possible aspect of your biology and life activities will be trackable 24/7. You will also be digitally tied into the Internet Of Things [IOT], which eventually will include “smart cities.” All the different parts of this giant population control grid fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle:
The global vaccination agenda ties into the biometric identity agenda,
which ties into the cashless society agenda,
which ties into the social credit system agenda,
which ties into the social engineering agenda,
and so on.
When you follow this experiment to its ultimate conclusion, you find all of humanity enslaved within a digitized prison with NO WAY OUT. Those who rebel will simply have their digital-everything restricted or shut down; you will be locked out of life…everything.
- Universal mask mandates, social distancing, business shutdowns, online working and learning, and quarantining of asymptomatic individuals were/are all forms of “soft indoctrination” to get us used to an entirely new, and unfathomably inhumane, way of life devoid of ALL rights and freedoms we once took for granted and enjoyed.
- The Other Klaus
Klaus Schwab is the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum. Schwab announced the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset Agenda in June 2020, which includes stripping people of their privately owned assets. In addition to being a poster child for technocracy, Schwab also has a strong transhumanist bend, and wrote the book on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a hallmark of which is the merger of man and machine, biology and digital technology. Schwab and his globalist accomplices are using the COVID-19 pandemic “to…
bypass democratic accountability,
to override opposition,
to accelerate their agenda and to impose it on the rest of humankind against our will.”
- Greatest Wealth Transfer in History Is Underway
While the Great Reset plan is being sold as a way to make life “fair and equitable” for all, the required sacrifices do not apply to the technocrats running the system. On the contrary, the wealth distribution and circular economies promoted by the technocratic elite will NEVER benefit the people, because what they’re really referring to is the redistribution of wealth from the working class people, to themselves…the technocratic elite. Never before has America seen such an accumulation of wealth in so few hands. That’s the planned technocratic wealth redistribution for you. Ultimately, The Great Reset will result in two tiers or people:
1] The technocratic elite, who have all the power and rule over all assets,
2] The rest of humanity, who have no power, no assets, and no voice.
- What Vaccines Have to Do With It
If you need more evidence that we’re in the middle of a technocratic takeover, look no further than the mass vaccination agenda and the promotion of fake, lab-grown meat. Bill Gates, another front-line technocrat, has repeatedly stated that we have no choice but to vaccinate everyone against COVID-19.
Naturally, he’s heavily invested in said vaccine, and stands to gain handsomely from a global mass vaccination campaign.
Technocrats are nothing if not self-serving, all while pretending to be “do-gooders.”
- Fake Meat Is Part of the Reset Too
The rise of fake, lab-grown meat is a puzzle piece of The Great Reset agenda too. According to the World Economic Forum, lab-grown, cultured meat is a more sustainable alternative to conventional livestock, and in the future, we’ll all be “eating a lot less meat.” But don’t think for a second that this has anything to do with environmental protection. No, it’s about controlling the food supply and preventing food independence. By controlling the food supply, they will control countries and entire populations.
- Make a Vow to Undo The Great Reset
Cherish life by actually living it and spending it with those you love. Refusing to give up our humanity is how we resist The Great Reset. The Great Reset is well underway, but it’s not yet too late to stop it. Enough people have to see it and understand it, though. And then they must act. If we want to prevent The Great Reset from destroying life as we know it, we must view civil disobedience as a duty. We must resist it from every angle.
We must reclaim our sovereignty, our right to live free,
to open our businesses and move about freely.
We must communicate with our elected leaders and demand they not infringe on our constitutional rights.
We have to engage in political processes and help educate our local sheriffs of their role as defenders of the constitution.
We may also need to support legal challenges.
FREEDOM IS WORTH EVERY BIT OF OUR RESOLVE AND ENERGY… FOR THE SAKE OF OUR CHILDREN WHO WILL HAVE TO LIVE IN THE WORLD WE LEAVE BEHIND. https://www.dropbox.com/s/i74ceq29gvyorb3/12-24-a-year-without-a-santa-claus-pdf.pdf?dl=0
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.
Beloved…be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. Be alertly waiting for your master’s return from the wedding feast, so you may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those whom the master finds ready when he comes. You also, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect! [Jesus…Luke 12:35-37, 40]
End Times Of Biblical Prophesy
Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…2nd part of a new weekly 10 sermon series by Dr. David Jeremiah…proving that we are currently living in the End Times prophesied in Scripture. I will be posting all the messages in this series as they are presented. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching these video presentations.
Sunday 9/26: Globalism…An International Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah.
1] Destruction of America
There were 5 chilling prophetic dreams posted by Pastor Dana Cornerstone that portrayed the utter destruction of America. I have been writing about this nearly every day for 18 months already, and so they are not really prophesy, they are a confirmation of the Holy Spirit of what is already taking place!
I am going to post one dream each day for the next 5 days. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events are unfolding even at this very hour.
- Lincoln Dream: Abraham Lincoln was hanged by Uncle Sam, who was forced to do so by the ruling government powers. Then Uncle Sam died as well…of a broken heart.
In the dream, God had this to say:
To Lincoln: They didn’t have any idea what they were doing, and now the Nation needs to brace itself for what they deserve. This is a symbolic representation…an allegory…of what has taken place with the death of America, God’s imminent judgment of wrath He is about to pour out upon this Nation, and warning to His people to “anchor your soul.”
To Uncle Sam: Rest in peace, Uncle Sam. Sorry you had to see the ship go down.
To the Nation: Brace yourself for fire and ice, and don’t forget to anchor your soul. https://youtu.be/_GB2dEHrHlo/
Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…as they are even now…the people of the world learn righteousness. Though God shows grace to the wicked, even so, they still do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. [Luke 21:26; Isa 26:10]
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6]
Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
I love my Country; I grew up here, and worked here, and enjoyed the freedoms we were given here. Even so…this Country is no longer the Country I grew up in. It has become something else…something totally different, something strange and foreign to me. We are a Nation no longer under the rule and Authority of God, and as a result so horribly transformed from what our Founding Fathers envisioned and birthed. Once a great and respected Christian Nation, God has made us the laughingstock of the world. This is what the Sovereign Lord said to Moses concerning the Israelites, and our Nation’s founding fathers warned it would apply to America as well: If you disobey the Lord your God and do not faithfully keep all His commands and laws that I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you in accordance with God’s solemn resolve to punish you as you deserve for disobeying Him.
Cursed shall you be in the city and
cursed shall you be in the field.
Cursed shall you be when you come in and
cursed shall you be when you go out.
The Lord will send upon you curses…calamitous events such as fires, floods, earthquakes, or pestilence that happen suddenly with a huge loss of life.
He will bring confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking Him. [Deut 15-16, 19-20]
Presented below is what it looks like…utter chaos…when God has determined by His Own Divine Decree to destroy a Nation, as He has America. Here is what a Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship looks like as it continues to unilaterally shut down, trample over, and shred our every constitutional right that stands in its way.
Make no mistake about it…God Himself has Personally judged our Nation with utter destruction, by His Own Divine Decree. Man did not do this; God didn’t just allow this to happen, He determined it to happen. Just as He did not allow Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed, or allow the world to be destroyed by a Great Flood…He Personally caused it.
We are plunging into a deep and very dark abyss in American history, at warp speed! A new Democrat reign of terror is upon us, utterly obliterating our Constitutional Republic, free speech, free press, political playing field, and our personal liberty! We need to be fully aware of what is taking place in our Nation in order to know how to be prepared as ministers of the Lord during these End Times.
God has determined by Divine decree that our Nation will be destroyed. “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat! Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.” God has Personally stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22] He has caused their thinking to become utterly confused…just as He had warned…so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation! You see it unfolding before your very eyes every day! The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused. [Deut 28:28]
Destruction of America
- Brethren…you need to watch this Pastor Dana prophetic dream concerning ominous events that will take place during December, and January. We see all of these things being foreshadowed even now in our everyday news…
Baltic Dry Index dead…no movement of goods, no global trade; ships anchored in ports, nothing moving at sea;
people standing for hours on long food lines;
Nationwide power outages;
people being housed in shelters;
market crashes and yields lost;
Great sadness throughout the land; people seemed very dazed and very confused;
Depression as a creature, choking people, pushing them down;
God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation:
- Perhaps God is now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid, or severe food shortages resulting from cargo ships stranded unloaded in our harbors…I don’t know; I can’t answer that. Even so…This is where I continue to stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place.
And so I continue to encourage you…Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take 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, 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 14:1-20 [NIV; Amplification in italics]
Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion in all of His majesty and glory, and with Him the 144,000 Israelites that had been sealed by the Angel of Yahweh…12,000 from each of the twelve tribes of Israel…who had His name and His Father’s name written on their foreheads. This was the visible mark of their steadfast, faithful, public witness of their allegiance to God and to the Lamb, standing in opposition to those who wore the mark of the Beast. And I heard a sound from Heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the Throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 sealed ones who had been redeemed from the Earth; theirs is a distinction and a glory, a joy and a blessedness, in which none but themselves can ever share. These are those who did not defile themselves in illicit sexual relations with women, for they kept themselves pure, living chaste lives, both as to their faithfulness to God in their religion, and as to their pureness from all physical lewdness. It is their honor and blessedness that they follow the Lamb wherever He goes. They were the extraordinarily sealed Hebrews purchased from among men and offered as first fruits of the recovered, restored and redeemed children of Abraham…offered to God and the Lamb, in that new order which is to come when the times of the gentiles are fulfilled…when these People, the Jewish Nation, are once again acknowledged and claimed as His possession, set apart once again and marked off as God’s chosen people. No lie was found in their mouths, never failing to confess Christ in all the length and breadth of His nature and offices, living their profession and showing by their works what they spoke with their lips. They are blameless…approved, justified and accepted before God!
Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and with mercy still lingering toward the poor infatuated world even in this very hour of wrath, he had the eternal Gospel to proclaim to those who live on the Earth…to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice…a voice of solemn warning thundering from the sky, “Fear God and give Him glory, because the very hour of His judgment has come! Worship Him who made the heavens, the Earth, the sea and the springs of water!”
A second angel followed with another merciful, though solemn, warning, and said, “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great with her colossal system of harlotry and corruption that holds dominion over all the nations of the Earth, which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries! Come out of her, My people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues!”
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.
Then I heard a voice from Heaven say, for the purpose of their special strengthening and consolation in the face of the inevitable suffering that will come upon them as a result of their refusal to worship the Antichrist, “Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them!”
I looked, and there before me was a white cloud…white like fire at its intensest heat…and seated on the cloud was one “like a son of man”…the Lord Jesus Christ Himself…with a crown of gold on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand, prepared to administer vengeance and sore judgment upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth. Indeed, they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory! Then another angel came out of the temple of Yahweh upon the Earth and called in a loud voice to Him who was sitting on the cloud, crying out for vengeance against the Beast for his afflictions and abominations against that temple and its God, “Take Your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the Earth is dead ripe for final judgment.” So He Who was seated on the cloud swung His sickle over the Earth, and the Earth was harvested! In one fell swoop, the whole present order of things on Earth are swept away and forever terminated; all the riches and glories of a godless world sink into utter ruin and oblivion, never to be brought up again!
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 Antichrist 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 Antichrist 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 wine press of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the wine press 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. [Revelation 14:1-20]
Following are several additional 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!
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.
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.”
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.
