Brothers and sisters in Christ…

God is calling you, and desires to anoint you, to be part of His holy remnant.  Whether you are a pastor, a Christian leader, or a member of the congregation…this is what the Lord says: To the pastors I have placed in charge of My churches concerning your congregation and each individual member, write: This is the last call.  I have wooed you so many times.  This time, I say to you, in great love…there is a cost to an anointing; this is not a light, frivolous matter.  The anointing is not cheap.  If you say in your heart, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it,” if you pay the cost of the anointing, I’ll open doors for you, I’ll speak through you, and I’ll use you again like you have never conceived.  The church and any members of the congregation embracing My call will move in the Power of My Holy Spirit, and bring great glory to God!  The time of being pumped up is over.  I am tired of your solemn assembly’s, I’m tired of your sacrifices… they’re not from the heart.  Don’t miss what God is about to do.  The time has come; I need you, and I love you…but if you ignore this trumpet call…if you say in your heart, “We will not listen,” I am going to take your anointing.  You’re not going to have anything to say to anybody; you’re going to be dry.  You are going into the desert…I will love you there, and I will keep you in My care, but you can’t go with Me, and I won’t go with you. 
Beloved child of God…let My Holy Spirit open your heart, and say from the depths of your being, “God, once again, use Your church; use Your child.  Now…not another time…tonight, let something in my heart respond to Your call.”

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.  God’s holy remnant is called to a life of self-sacrifice and self-denial.  You cannot become My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own.  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]  

REFLECTIONS
These are the cardinal truths concerning the life of waiting upon God, and how deep down these truths go to the very root of spiritual life. [Andrew Murray, Waiting on God]

  • The very Nature and Being of God, as the only Possessor and Dispenser of any life there is in the Universe, implies that He must every moment communicate to every creature the power by which it exists, and therefore also much more the power by which it can do that which is good.  That capability for Mankind to do that which is good is solely and only through the Holy Spirit…God’s Eternal Gift given to those who are born-again to dwell within us, never to leave us nor forsake us, to be the source of our strength and the Power of our life.  
  • The very nature and being of a creature, as owing its existence to God alone, and equally owing to Him each moment the continuation of that existence, implies that its happiness can only be found in absolute, unceasing, and continual child-like dependence upon God.
  • The great value and blessing of the gift of the Spirit at Pentecost, as the fruit of Christ’s Redemption, is that it is now possible for God to take possession of His redeemed children and work in them as He did in Adam before the fall.
  • In the Spiritual life, our great need is the knowledge of two great lessons.
    The one…our entire sinfulness and helplessness…our utter impotence by any effort of our own to do anything towards the maintenance and increase of our inner spiritual life.
    The second…the infinite willingness of God’s Love…which is nothing but a desire to communicate Himself and His blessedness to us to meet our every need, and every moment to work in us by His Son and His Holy Spirit what we need.
  • Therefore, the very essence of true religion, whether in Heaven or upon Earth, consists in an unalterable dependence upon God… an unreserved child-like dependence upon God…because we can give God no other glory than yielding ourselves to His Love, which created us to show forth in us its glory, that it may now perfect its work in us.

I have been much impressed by the thought of how, in all our religion, personal and public, we need more of God.  I have felt the need for God’s people, in our worship time, to wait on God much more than we do; to make the cultivation of a deeper sense of His Presence, of more direct contact with Him, of entire dependence upon Him, our definite aim and personal goal.

At all our conventions and assemblies, too little time is given to waiting on God.  Is He not willing to put things right in His Own Divine way?  Has the life of God’s people reached the utmost limit of what God is willing to do for them?  Surely not!  We need to wait on Him; to put away our experiences, however blessed they have been; our conceptions of truth, however sound and Scriptural we think they seem; our plans, however needful and suitable they appear; and give God time and place to show us what He could do, what He will do, if we would only just give Him free reign to do with us as He pleases.

The great lack of our religion is…we do not know God.  The answer to every complaint of feebleness and failure, the message to every congregation or convention seeking instruction on holiness, ought to be simply, “What is the matter?  Have you not God?”
If you really believe in God, He will put all right.  God is willing and able by His Holy Spirit.  Cease from expecting the least good from yourself, or the least help from anything there is in man, and just yield yourself unreservedly to God to work in you.  He will most assuredly do all for you.  This is the gospel we so little know.  Would God that we might get some right conception of what the influence would be on a life spent…not in thought, or imagination, or effort…but in the Power of the Holy Spirit, wholly waiting upon God.  He can do new things, unheard of things, hidden things.  Let us enlarge our hearts and not limit Him.  When Thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, Thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at Thy Presence.  For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside Thee, what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him. [Isa 64:3-4]  

My beloved child…this is indeed the privilege of all My children: All who are indeed My children are continually led by My indwelling Holy Spirit!”  So I counsel you, walk in My Spirit.  Watch for Him and wait before Him; look off unto Him and listen for His voice.  He will place you where you are to be; He will lead you where you are to go.  He will show you what you are to do to participate together with Me in My work, give you the thoughts you are to think and to present, the words you are to speak or write.

The very essence of a blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with God…an abiding life of faith in God…can be summed up in this one, all-encompassing, principle:
WAITING UPON GOD, with and unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence…
FOR GOD TO REVEAL TO ME His plans, His purposes, His will, and a deeper revelation of Who He is…
SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.

Continually and unceasingly, day and night, my heart needs to breathe in that breath of life that comes from the Holy Spirit 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.  This is the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with God.
Abba Father…
since I have been raised with Christ Jesus Your Son into newness of life, I continually set my heart upon the rich eternal treasures that are above, in the Heavenly realms, where Your Divine Son Jesus is seated at Your right hand.  I continually set my mind and my thoughts on the things of Heaven and the spiritual realm, not on the things of Earth and the physical realm.  For I died in union with Christ Your Son, and have been raised up together with Him into newness of life; my new life is hidden now with Christ Jesus in You, Father.  When Christ, Who is my life, appears, then I also shall appear with Him in glory. [Col 3:1-4] 

Confident assurance that it is not in vain:
In the confident assurance in God which faith gives, I am ever to remember one thing above all…to wait upon God.  My chief need in waiting upon God, one of the deepest secrets of its blessedness and blessing, is a quiet, confident persuasion that it is not in vain; courage to believe that God will hear and help.  I am waiting upon a God Who never could disappoint His people!  In the utter insufficiency of all human strength, “Be strong and let thine heart take courage.”  I am to let NOTHING in Heaven or Earth or Hell…let NOTHING keep me from waiting on my God in full assurance that it cannot be in vain! [Andrew Murray]  

My waiting…His revealing…my cooperating and responding:
I am to live every moment of my everyday life, whether involved in things that are sacred or things that are secular, waiting with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence upon God…for Him to reveal His plans, His purposes, His will, and a deeper revelation of Who He is…SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.
I am never to initiate, never to act according to my own wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  I am only to cooperate and respond, according to the leading and guiding and counsel of the Holy Spirit.  This is the blessed life of a deep and intimate personal relationship with my Father.  My soul, wait thou only upon God!  I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. [Jer 10:23]  The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who listens to counsel is wise.  There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. [Prov 12:15; 14:12]  

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 to 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 HUMBLE FEAR AND HOPE

Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear Him…that behold Him with an awe-filled regard and bow before Him with the utmost reverence and respect in His Majesty and Glory and Power…upon them who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and unfailing love; to deliver my soul from death, and to keep me alive in famine.  My soul waiteth for my LORD: He is my help and my shield.  For my heart shall rejoice in Him, because I have trusted in His Holy Name.  Let Your mercy and unfailing love, O LORD, be upon me, according as I wait upon and put my hope in You. [Ps 33:18-22]

My beloved child…My eye is upon My children; you are the apple of My eye.  Keep your eyes fixed upon Me.  In waiting upon God, your eye, looking up to Me, meets My eye looking down upon you.  This is the blessedness of your waiting upon God…it takes your eyes and thoughts away from yourself, even your needs and desires, and occupies yourself with your God.  The deeper you bow before My Holiness in holy fear and adoring awe, in deep reverence and humble self-abasement, even as the angels veil their faces before the Throne, the more will My Holiness rest upon you, and your soul be filled to have Me, your God and Father, reveal Myself to you.  The lower you bow…the deeper you feel you have nothing to hope in but My mercy and unfailing love…the nearer I will come and make your heart bold to trust in Me with an unwavering child-like trust. The deeper you enter into the truth “that no flesh glory in His Presence,” will it be given you to see My Glory and make your heart bold to trust Me.  You need only just let your whole habit of waiting upon God be pervaded by abounding hope…a hope as bright and boundless as God’s mercy.  My Fatherly kindness is such that, in whatever state you come to Me, you may confidently hope in My mercy and unfailing love.  You need only think of your God, in all of My Majesty and Glory and Power, upon Whom you wait: to deliver my soul from death, and to keep me alive in famine.  My soul waiteth for the LORD: He is my help and my shield.  For my heart shall rejoice in Him, because I have trusted in His Holy Name.

**        **, sometimes I do not prevent the many pressures, trials and afflictions that trouble and weary a human soul.  This is oftentimes needed to stir you up to wait upon Me.  But I deliver you and safeguard your life.  For the dangers are often very real and dark; the situation, whether in the temporal or spiritual life, may appear to be utterly hopeless.  There is always one sure hope you can embrace: God’s eye is upon you.  My eye is on even the sparrow…and so you can know with certainty I’m watching over you.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  My eye sees the danger, and sees in tender love My trembling waiting child, and sees the moment when your heart is ripe for the blessing, and sees the way in which it is to come.  You need only just humbly but boldly say, My soul waiteth for my LORD: He is my help and my shield; a very present help in every time of trouble, a shield and defense against every danger!  Beloved child of God!  Will you not learn to sink down in entire hopeless helplessness and impotence, and in stillness to wait and see the salvation of God?  In the utmost spiritual famine, and when danger appears to prevail…oh, wait upon God!  I do deliver, I do keep watch over you, protect you, and keep you safe.  Nothing can touch your life unless I allow it to do so….and if I do allow an adversity to touch your life, it is because I have a blessing laid aside for you that I want you to have…a blessing of such a nature, however, that it can only be appropriated by your patiently enduring the adversity that I specifically allowed to touch your life.  I am your help and your shield!  You will most assuredly be glad, most assuredly rejoice in My salvation!

Beloved…you are My child, in whom I am well-pleased.  I love you with a fathomless love; you are the apple of My eye.  I take great pleasure in you.  Abide with Me in the shelter of the Most High…here in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence within the Heavenly Sanctuary…where you will find your home and resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in My loving arms.  I am your Refuge and your Fortress, your God and Father, in Whom you may have an unwavering child-like trust and in Whom you may continually be at rest in an unruffled child-like rest…in My loving arms, **        **, where all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled.

Abba Father…most assuredly, You deliver me from the hidden traps and from deadly hazards.  You cover me with Your pinions, and under Your wings I abide with You in an unwavering child-like trust, and find refuge.  I am safe in Your care; Your truth and Your faithfulness protect and defend me.  I need not be afraid of any terror of the night, nor the sudden evil attacks of the enemy during the day, nor of any dreaded diseases that stalk in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death of disasters that surprise and lay waste at noonday.  A thousand may fall at my side, Father, and ten thousand at my right hand…but these evils will not touch me.  Safe and secure in the secret place of the Most High, I will be only a spectator as I witness the recompense of the wicked!  Because I have made You my refuge, Father, and the Most High my dwelling place…no evil shall befall me, nor any plague or calamity come near my dwelling place.  For You give Your angels special charge over me, to accompany, defend, and preserve me in all my ways of obedience and service.  They steady me with their hands, and keep me from stumbling against the rocks on the pathway.  I can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes; I will walk unharmed among them…yes, even trample them beneath my feet!  Because I have set my love upon You, Father, therefore will You deliver me.  You set me on high, because I know and understand Your Name through our deep and intimate Sacred Covenant relationship…knowing You will never, never leave me…You will never, ever forsake me…assuredly not!  I shall call upon You, and You will indeed answer me.  You will be with me in times of trouble, yes…You will deliver me and honor me.  You will most assuredly satisfy me with long life and show me Your salvation.  Hallelujah! [Ps 91:3-16]

Your steadfast Love for me, Father, is better than life; my lips continually proclaim Your Glory!  My lips shout for joy as I sing praises to You…I, whom You have redeemed!  You turned my wailing to dancing!  You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy…that my heart may sing to You and not be silent!  O Lord my God, I will give You thanks forever and ever, throughout the eternal ages!  I will praise You as long as I have life, and in honor to Your Name, I lift my hands and worship You!  Every day I will bless You and adore You, Precious Lord; yes, I will praise Your wonderful Name forever and ever!  O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praises; with singing lips my mouth overflows with Your praises!  I will open my mouth and offer up unto You a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of my lips, worshiping You for Who You are…the One True Living God; praising You for all You have done for the souls of Man down through the ages; gratefully acknowledging, with a heart of thanksgiving, all You have Personally done for me.  My soul shall forever be satisfied, as with the richest of foods!  I feast on the abundance of Your house, Lord; You give me drink from Your River of delights!

Blessed Jesus…because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings!  You cover me with Your feathers, and under Your wings I find refuge; Your faithfulness, O Lord, is my Shield and my Protector!  My flesh and my heart may fail…often do…but You are the strength of my heart and my portion forever!  My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.  Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing Love, for You are my Refuge and my Fortress…my God, in whom I trust!  For have You not promised?  I will never, never, leave you; I will never, ever, forsake you! Assuredly not!  O Lord, You are my Help; of whom shall I be afraid?  What can man do to me?  Who, or what, shall ever be able to separate me from Your Love, precious Lord?  Shall trouble or hardship, distress or persecution, famine, nakedness, danger or sword?  No…in all these things I am more than a conqueror through You, Lord…the One who loves me!  For I am persuaded, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that neither death, nor life; nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers; nor things present, nor things to come; nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, shall ever be able to separate me from the Love of God my Father, which flows unceasingly through You, Precious Lord…my Redeemer and my King!

Abba Father…Here am I, Your child.  I’ve come running to You, with a reckless abandon, and rest my weary head against Your bosom…as You embrace me, kiss me, and hold me close to Your bosom, reassuring me so lovingly, so tenderly, so affectionately…

**          **, I love you.  You are My child, and I am your Father and your God. I take great pleasure in you; you’re the apple of My eye.  So be comforted and be reassured of My unfailing love for you.  Have you never understood, My child?  I have loved you with an everlasting Love: I knew you by name, in eternity past, before I created the world, and My love for you is  unconditional.  My Love for you is unfailing, unchanging, and unending.  It will never perish or spoil or fade.  If only you would know in the depths of your soul, if only you would just fully embrace, the greatness of My love I have lavished upon you…that you are named as My Own child!  I rejoice over you with singing.  My heart delights in you, and I long to fill you with all My fullness…with all the fullness of God.  I long to pour all of My Blessedness and all of My Goodness into you, to have this intimate fellowship with you that we have, and to become ever more one with you, just as We are One with One Another in Our Blessed Holy Trinity.  You are a good and faithful child,
**          **, and I am well-pleased with you…not because you are without sins and failures, without mistakes and imperfections.  No, beloved, I know you are but a child…laden with sins and failures, laden with mistakes and imperfections.  Even so, you are a good and faithful child in My sight and I am well-pleased with you… because you have set your heart to trust in Me with an unwavering trust; you have set your heart to depend upon Me with an unreserved child-like dependence; you have set your heart to obey My will, and to accept My will, with an unquestioning child-like obedience.  These are the things that define you as a good and faithful child, and make you to be well-pleasing to Me.  Don’t you yet understand?  A child melts his/her Father’s heart…you melt My heart…when you just come to Me and rest your weary head against My bosom.  That melts a Father’s heart, because it is a child’s way of expressing absolute trust, absolute dependence, unquestioning obedience.  It is all that a Father would ever need, or want, or desire of His child
.

And so, My beloved child…drift off to sleep here in My arms in an unruffled child-like rest.  Abide here with Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy.  Don’t you worry, don’t you fret.  Don’t be anxious or afraid.  Trust in Me with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.  Watch for Me and wait before Me; look off unto Me and listen for My voice.  Acknowledge Me in this way, and I will lead you and guide you by My Holy Spirit.  He will place you where you are to be, lead you where you are to go, show you what you are to do to participate together with Me in My plans, My purposes, My will for you.  He will give you the thoughts you are to think and to present, the words you are to speak or to write.  He will direct your paths…if you would only trust your heart to Me.  I will watch over that heart of yours and keep it safe, if only you would just trust Me with it.  So don’t be disappointed, don’t be discouraged; don’t be disheartened or disillusioned.  Don’t be downcast, down-trodden, distraught, dismayed, or distressed.  Don’t lament over the past, or be anguished about the present, or agonize over the future.  You needn’t be angry, upset, frustrated, irritated, or annoyed.  And don’t become impatient, or grow weary of waiting.  I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.  You are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus My Son to do good works…works that I Myself have planned in advance for you to do.  Every day of your life was recorded in My book before you were born…before you ever began to breathe.  So be still, and know that I AM your Father and your God.  My beloved child…just call upon Me, and I will answer you; I will be with you in times of trouble, I will deliver you and honor you.  With long life will I satisfy you and show you My salvation.

Abba Father…my soul glorifies You; my spirit rejoices in my Father and my God!  I am Your child, now and forever; may it be unto me according to all You have planned for me!  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.
My soul, wait thou only upon God!   

REVIVAL  
My brothers and sisters in Christ…l
iving in the Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit is the entire focus of our life-long 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.  Our Journey of Faith as resident aliens on this Earth [we are citizens of Heaven] demands 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 within 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! 

Absolute Surrender:

Are you prepared to go into the Garden that Jesus went to that night of His betrayal, and to walk along the path He was called to walk in demonstration of His love for the Father?  Our Lord Jesus asks of me…of each one of us…“Do you love Me with an agape love?”  Have you set your heart to walk along 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 not humanly possible to walk that path; only the Holy Spirit can set you free to walk that path, in His Power and in reliance upon His strength.  You can’t do it apart from Him.  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 have  no possessions any longer 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.  I have no time of my own; it all 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!

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.

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

BRETHREN…THIS IS A WARNING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.  HE WHO HAS AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAYS TO THE CHURCHES AND EACH OF THEIR MEMBERS.

Presentation: Dr. Mercola: Biden Executive Order Advances Biotech-Transhumanist Agenda.  New Bloodbath Ahead, COVID Shots Were Just the Beginning.  I predicted this ‘no testing required’ formula would spread beyond COVID shots, and according to the executive order Biden just signed, that’s exactly what’s about to happen.  In the shorter term, it’s crucial to realize that the fast-tracking of “genetic engineering technologies and techniques to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers” means they’re going to cut corners.  Loads of them.  Testing is basically going to be done on the population at large [we are the guinea pigs] , just as they’ve done with the COVID jabs.  The results of such experimentation are relatively predictable…there will be disastrous ramifications.  People will be seriously injured and many will die.  So, think long and hard before you agree to take any of these forthcoming dangerous and lethal gene therapies. 

  • September 12, 2022, President Biden signed the “Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Bio-manufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe, and Secure American Bio-economy” 
  • Specified in that order is the development of genetic engineering technologies and techniques “to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers,” as well as genetic technologies to “unlock the power of biological data” using “computing tools and artificial intelligence”  
  • This executive order establishes a fast-tracked pipeline of mRNA shots and other gene therapies that will further the transhumanist agenda to create augmented humans and bring us into a post-human world. 
  • Drug makers have clearly expected this free-for-all as they have loads of mRNA “vaccine” candidates in their pipelines.  September 14, 2022, Pfizer initiated a Phase 3 study that will test a quadrivalent mRNA-based flu shot on 25,000 American adults.  Moderna began its Phase 3 mRNA flu jab trial in early June 2022. Ultimately, Moderna wants to create a single annual mRNA shot that covers all of the top 10 viruses that result in hospitalizations each year [with the result that the vaccine itself will cause 100 times the hospitalizations and deaths that the top 10 viruses had added together caused]. 
  • In early September 2022, the FDA also put out medically false and misleading COVID booster campaign messages that prove we’ve officially entered the era of transhumanism: “It’s time to install that update!  #UpdateYourAntibodies with a new #COVID19 booster.”  “Don’t be shocked! You can now #RechargeYourImmunity with an updated #COVID19 booster.”  DON’T FALL FOR THIS OUT-RIGHT LYING PROPAGANDA!  AVOID THESE DEADLY AND LETHAL DRUGS LIKE THE PLAGUE! 
  • The Transhumanist Agenda: Human 2.0
    In September 2020, I posted a video with Dr. Carrie Madej (above), in which she suggested we were standing at the crossroads of transhumanism, thanks to the fast approaching release of mRNA COVID-19 shots.  “One reason why it’s important to know whether synthetic RNA creates permanent changes in the genome is because synthetic genes are patented.  If they cause permanent changes, humans will contain patented genes, and that brings up very serious questions, seeing how patents have owners, and owners have patent rights.”
    Since these shots are designed to manipulate your biology, they have the potential to also alter the biology of the entire human race.  Nearly two years later, we still don’t know the extent to which they might be doing that, yet more fast-tracked and untested gene therapies are on the way. 
  • US Defense Department Aims to Create Human Cyborgs
    The hydrogel used to preserve the mRNA can also contain nanobots to create a bio-electric interface capable of connecting to a smartphone or other interface.  Novel technologies that measure biological data, such as blood sugar, are based on this.  Such technologies will, of course, have immediate ramifications for our privacy, as anyone will be able to access you via smartphone or other interface without you even knowing it.
  • Changing What It Means To Be Human
    In “The Plan to Turn You Into a Genetically Edited Cyborg,” I covered another shockingly dystopian report by the U.K. Ministry of Defense and the German Bundeswehr Office for Defense Planning, published in May 2021.  That report, “Human Augmentation: The Dawn of a New Paradigm, a Strategic Implications Project,” reviews the scientific goals of the U.K. and German defense ministries, and they basically mirror that of the U.S. DOD.  On page 12 of the report, the concept of the human body as a platform is described, and how various parts of the human platform can be augmented through gene-editing technology.   
  • We’re Already Being Programmed to Accept Transhumanism Disturbingly, considering how non-transparent governments have been so far, it’s not inconceivable that technologies capable of influencing thoughts and behaviors would be used on populations without informing anyone, which makes the list of potential risks one takes with each new mRNA injection even longer than it already is. 
  • Control Capabilities Go Far Beyond Orwell’s ‘1984’ Vision
    In a November 2019 interview with CNN, history professor Yuval Noah Harari, a Klaus Schwab disciple, stated that humans are already “hackable,” meaning the technology exists [by means of gene-editing through mRNA vaccines] by which a company or government can know you better than you know yourself, and this knowledge can be used for any and all of their diabolic purposes.

Presentation: Mary Holland, President Children’s Health Defense: What’s my greatest fear today for our children’s health?  It’s this: that Fauci and his pals at Pfizer and Moderna and the CDC and FDA will stop at nothing to get their dangerous COVID vaccines listed on the recommended childhood vaccine schedule.  [AND THEY DID!]  If they succeed, millions more children will be injured…or worse.
No matter how many battles we win in this fight along the way, if we lose the big one…if Pharma gets this vaccine on the CDC childhood schedule…the casualties may be incalculable and the task of rescinding it may be nearly insurmountable.  

Presentation: Dr. Mercola: Dark Winter Warning – With a Twist.  Original Antigenic Sin…The Hidden Danger of COVID Shots.  Due to a process known as ‘immune imprinting,’ which handcuffs your immune system, we could well be facing the ‘dark winter’ we were warned would befall us…there’s no telling what kind of viral mutations are ahead.  

  • This fall, they’re telling people to line up for the two riskiest, deadliest, and most lethal injections out there.  Media are stating that getting the flu shot and the COVID jab at the same time is ‘safe.’  Yet there are absolutely NO data to support such a claim.
  • The COVID shots also are responsible for the rapid, off-the-charts increase in excess deaths around the world.  As reported September 8, 2022, by The Defender, the COVID jabs are causing injuries on a scale we’ve never seen before in medical history.  As of September 2, 2022, just 21 months into the COVID jabs existence, 1,400,350 post-jab injuries have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  That’s more than half of all VAERS reports collected for ALL vaccines added together since its inception 32 years ago. 
  • Scientists warn repeated COVID boosters may result in lowered immunity through a process known as “original antigenic sin” or “immune imprinting.”  The end result is that you become increasingly prone to symptomatic infections.  Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirm that people who got two or three COVID jabs are MORE likely to get ill with COVID six to eight months after the last dose than had they gotten none. 
  • The COVID jab and the flu vaccine are the No. 1 and No. 2 most dangerous, lethal injections respectively, based on adverse event reports and payouts from the U.S. Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.  Both are also capable of shedding, and both can make you more prone to infection.    
  • Should You Double Up on COVID Booster and Flu Shot?
    Our [intentionally] reckless Health authorities are potentially worsening matters further by pushing people to simultaneously get the updated bivalent COVID booster and a quadrivalent flu vaccine this fall.  Early in September 2022, White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci urged Americans to “Get your updated COVID-19 shot as soon as you are eligible,” and White House COVID coordinator Ashish Jha, September 6, stated, “I really believe this is why God gave us two arms, one for the flu shot and the other one for the COVID shot”…a statement that will live on in infamy as one of the most ridiculous and utterly moronic comments from a public health official ever uttered. 
  • Both Shots Are Associated With Serious Side Effects
    On top of the antigenic sin possibility for both the COVID jab and the flu vaccine, there’s the possibility of suffering serious side effects from either or both of these shots.  Before the advent of the COVID jab, injury following influenza vaccination was the most compensated claim in the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).  Based on VICP injury filings and awards, the flu vaccine was the riskiest vaccine out there.  The COVID jab, however, blew the flu shot out of the water within the first few weeks of use. 
  • COVID Jabs Linked to Excess Deaths
    Yet governments around the world are turning a blind eye.  Most medical researchers also avoid these data like the plague, for fear of getting censored and de-funded for telling the truth.  There is a relentless agenda out there to suppress the truth whenever it counters what their lying propaganda WANTs you to believe.

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

Shall a trumpet be blown in the city and the people not be alarmed and tremble?  Shall disaster or evil come to a city and the Lord has not caused it?  Surely the Lord God will do nothing without warning you through His servants the prophets.  I, the Sovereign LORD, have now done this. [Amos 3:6-7]

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

End Times Of Biblical Prophesy

Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…2nd part of a new weekly 10 sermon series by Dr. David Jeremiah…proving that we are currently living in the End Times prophesied in Scripture.  I will be posting all the messages in this series as they are presented.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching these video presentations.
Sunday 9/26: Globalism…An International Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz63njVlmEE

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

The Bible warns there will be the Anti-christ…a man who proclaims to be God…who will unite the world in a one world government, with a one world financial system, and establish a one world religion.
While we cannot predict “the day or the hour,” when you put all these components together, it’s starting to look even now a lot like the beginnings of the End Times.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name! [Revelation 13:16-17] 

  • The vaccine mandate with its VACCINE PASSPORT/DIGITAL ID, without which you won’t be able to buy or sell…your kids won’t be able to attend school, you will not be allowed to go to work, or go into any store or facility open to the public, or travel anywhere, or attend any sporting events or live entertainment, or to enter movie theaters, or do anything…is the forerunner of, and preparation for, the mark of the Beast. 
  • The GLOBAL RESET with its one world government and one world financial system…now being ushered in through the on-going destruction of the Constitutional Republic of America which stood in the way of the principles and dictates of the Anti-christ…is the preparation of the way for the coming rule and reign of the Anti-christ. 

1]  Destruction of America

  • News article: Pastor Andrew Brunson Warns U.S. Christians: Get Ready for Persecution.  The American pastor who was imprisoned for two years in Turkey on false charges is warning Christians in the United States that in an environment of increasing hostility, they need to prepare to face the kind of persecution experienced by fellow believers around the world.  Andrew Brunson, in a column for Decision magazine, confessed that he wasn’t prepared for the horrors he suffered in a Turkish prison.  “I came close to failing, especially during my first year in prison.  At times I was suicidal,” he wrote.  “I was overcome with fear and despair.  I went into relational crisis with God.”  He noted that the gatekeepers of American culture are “increasingly hostile to those who identify clearly with Jesus and His teaching.”  “We need to be careful not to be over-confident,” Brunson cautioned. “I say to you again, it can be more difficult than we think, and God’s faithfulness, His help, His grace, may look different than what we would expect.”  He concluded with a reference to Jesus as the Lion of Judah.  “My brothers and sisters, we are on a perilous journey,” he wrote. “There will be hardship and danger, but the Lion is with us.  At some point, the journey will end, and it will end in victory for the Lion and for those who are on His side.” 
  • News article:‘NOT A GOSPEL AT ALL!’  Evangelist Franklin Graham blasted “progressive Christianity” for waging a war against Biblical Christianity and delivering people eternal damnation.  In a Decision Magazine op-ed, the son of Billy Graham said the false doctrine “has cropped up in the halls of seminaries, infiltrated the pulpits of thousands of churches and been propagated by a godless liberal media.”  Citing the apostle Paul, Graham said the progressive evangelicals are proclaiming a “different gospel” entirely.  “So the real, ultimate danger is that progressive Christianity can send a person to hell.”  “Evangelicals need to guard the truth of genuine Scriptural preaching and living, remaining true and bold about exactly what the Bible clearly teaches,” Graham concluded.  “There is no other way to be saved and secured for all eternity.” 
  • News article: Tucker Carlson: ‘Green’ governance is new ‘guise’ for mercantilism, will lead to global instability: Heritage president.  Americans should beware instability from rising ‘green governance’ Heritage president warns. 
  • News article: World Economic Forum calls to reduce private vehicles by eliminating ‘ownership.’  World Economic Forum says steps need to be taken to reduce reliance on critical metals amid green energy push.    
  • News article: Biden’s radical SEC agenda uses agency to mandate climate change regulation.  Mandating climate change regulation is part of radical SEC agenda under Biden.  What’s truly shocking is to see another federal agency, with a mandate that is in a completely different hemisphere, attempting to expand its mandate to fight “climate change.”  Under Biden appointee and former Hillary Clinton adviser Gary Gensler, the SEC is now trying to enact a rule that would saddle public companies with enormous and unnecessary new disclosure requirements related to their carbon and greenhouse emissions.  Sorry, it’s worse than that…the proposed rule would actually require companies to disclose not only their own greenhouse gas emissions, but also those of their entire supply chain…the greenhouse gas emissions of their suppliers, and of their consumers. 
  • News article: Billionaire-funded eco group quietly taking farmland out of production in rural America.  Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen tells Fox News Digital the group’s plans are ‘flatly illegal.’  The American Prairie (AP), a conservation project in Montana, has quietly scooped up more than 450,000 acres of land with the help of its billionaire donors and the federal government. 
  • News article: Food inflation surges over 10%. The new costs for family dinners.  Food-at-home prices increased 12.2% in June.  

2]  Destruction of America

There were 5 chilling prophetic dreams posted by Pastor Dana Cornerstone that portrayed the utter destruction of America.  I have been writing about this nearly every day for 18 months already, and so the dreams are not really prophesy, they are a confirmation of the Holy Spirit of what is already taking place!
I am going to post one dream each day for the next 5 days; following is the 2nd one.  I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour. 

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

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

Brothers and sisters in Christ…

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

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

Destruction of America 
Brethren…you need to watch this Pastor Dana prophetic dream concerning ominous events that will take place during December, and January.  We see all of these things being foreshadowed even now in our everyday news…
Baltic Dry Index dead…no movement of goods, no global trade; ships anchored in ports, nothing moving at sea;
people standing for hours on long food lines;
Nationwide power outages;
people being housed in shelters;
market crashes and yields lost;
Great sadness throughout the land; people seemed very dazed and very confused;
Depression as a creature, choking people, pushing them down;
God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPR1cchbkAE&feature=youtu.be

  • Perhaps God is now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid, or severe food shortages resulting from cargo ships stranded unloaded in our harbors…I don’t know; I can’t answer that.  Even so…This is where I continue to stand.  I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time.  I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place.
    And so I continue to encourage you…Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to  https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/
    A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3] 

    The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm.  Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take placeso as to not be overwhelmed by a severe scarcity of goods, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression!
    You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. [Phil 2:14-16]  We have been raised up by the Lord for such a time as this!  

But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6]
Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands. 

Beloved…I still hold to these words of warning from the Holy Spirit:  “Brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things.  Ready or not, Nation, here it comes!  Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength.  Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm!  Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end.”

[Ezekiel 14:12-23: excerpts from Matthew Henry’s Commentary]  National sins bring National judgments.  When virtue is ruined and laid waste every thing else will soon be ruined and laid waste too: When the land sins against Me, when vice and wickedness become epidemical, when the land sins by trespassing grievously, when the sinners have become very numerous and their sins very heinous, when gross impieties and immoralities universally prevail [as has long since been the case now in our own Nation; we have way out-sinned Sodom and Gomorrah], then will I stretch forth My hand upon it, for the punishment of it.  The Divine Power shall be vigorously and openly exerted; the judgments shall be extended and stretched forth to all the corners of the land, to all the concerns and interests of the nation.  Grievous sins bring grievous plagues.
Even so, in the places that are most corrupt, and in the ages that are most degenerate, there is a remnant which God reserves to Himself, and which still hold fast their integrity and stand fair for the honour of delivering the land, as the innocent are said to do [Job 22:30]  However, when the sin of a people has come to its height, and the Divine decree has gone forth for their ruin, the piety and prayers of the best men shall not prevail with God to end the controversy.  We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.    

Son of man, when a land sins against Me by committing a trespass, and I stretch out My hand against it and break its staff of bread and send famine upon it and cut off from it man and beast…or suppose I were to pour out my fury by sending a plague into the land, and the disease killed people and animals alike.  As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were there, they wouldn’t be able to save their own sons or daughters!  They alone would be saved by their own righteousness.  When My judgments come upon the Earth…when I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or when I command locusts to devour the land [as happened last year in Kenya] or when I send a plague among my people [as is happening even now worldwide]…the people of the world learn righteousness.  [Ezek 14:13, 19, 20; Isa 26:10] 

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

Friends, brothers and sisters…

There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell.  You must be a born-again child of God.  I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]

If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/, and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”

He walks with me and He talks with me:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
