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]
Relentless Destruction of America: Preparing the Way for the Anti-christ:
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
WHAT I HAVE BEEN DILIGENTLY AND URGENTLY WARNING ABOUT AS A WATCHMAN OF THE LORD FOR THE PAST 24 MONTHS IS NOW BEING LAUNCHED. YOU NEED TO BE FULLY AWARE OF THIS, AND AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE. IF YOU FAIL TO HEED THIS WARNING AND GIVE IN TO THIS…YOU WILL BE IMPRISONED IN THEIR SYSTEM, AND YOU WILL HAVE LOST YOUR FREEDOM FOREVER. IT WILL BE IRREVERSIBLE.
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: Digital Passport System Has Quietly Rolled Out. More than 200 million Americans now have access to digital vaccine passports, putting their freedom and privacy increasingly at risk. Disguised as a tool for “convenience and safety,” and a “convenient way to store your health records,” digitized IDs such as mobile driver’s licenses and vaccine passports will be embedded into everyday life, eroding your privacy and acting as a tool to control everything from food and sustainability to travel and mobility. Simply put: the pandemic was orchestrated to mandate an experimental gene therapy that the CDC likes to refer to as a ‘vaccine.’
That ‘vaccine’ is for purposes of getting everyone onto a vaccine ID passport/digital ID. The passport is to force everyone into the new global social credit system. That system is to bring the global population to full obedience, as the globalists control everyone’s access to, and spending on, anything and everything in life, through the use of the new CBDC (central bank digital currency) system they are now building toward.”
- At least 21 U.S. states, along with the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, have rolled out digital vaccine passports, and four more states plan to release them soon. One of the most prominent names in the digital vaccine passport space is SMART Health Card, a verifiable vaccine passport developed by the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI). SMART Health Cards, which can be paper or digital, can be obtained from pharmacies, doctors’ offices, state immunization registries, and any other organization that has your shot records and other health information
- Already, digital passports are being required to gain access to events and venues that were previously available to everyone, stripping privacy and freedom from those who choose not to use them. Soon, they may merge with your health, financial, and digital identity so they can act as a Digital Passport increasingly necessary to partake in society AT ALL.
- More Than 200 Million Americans Can Access Vaccine Passports
One of the most prominent names in the digital vaccine passport space is SMART Health Card, a verifiable vaccine passport developed by the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), which is a “global coalition of public and private “stakeholders” [a term used in the Great Reset] including Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle, the Mayo Clinic and other health and tech heavyweights.” According to VCI, they’re committed to “empowering” individuals with access to a “trustworthy and verifiable copy of their vaccination records in digital or paper form using open, interoperable standards [in order to be allowed to participate in society]. It can be stored as a digital file on your phone or computer, allowing you to easily present it, in the form of a QR code. Individuals can then use those verifiable “credentials” for medical purposes and to “demonstrate their health status” to “safely” return to work, school, travel, and life” [if the “vaccine” hasn’t already killed you or maimed you for life]…[and, in any event, without which you will be prevented from returning to work, school, travel, and life]. More than a dozen nations already use VCI’s SMART Health Cards, including:
United Arab Emirates;
- Sights Set on International Development
The vast majority of the vaccinated individuals in the US…over 200 million of them…already have the ability right now to go and get one of these “credentials,” and to [unknowingly] forfeit their freedom FOREVER going forward…irreversibly. More than 100 major health systems and hospital groups across the country now offer SMART Health Cards to patients. These include Kaiser Permanente, Tenet Health, Scripps Healthcare, Cerner and other healthcare heavy hitters…as well as big regional healthcare groups in the SMART consortium.
- Ultimately, the goal is for vaccine passports to be used worldwide, presenting a formidable tool for technocratic control. According to Anderson, it’s not enough that COVID-19 is waning…vaccine passports, he believes, should be here to stay in order for people to [be allowed to] travel and work freely, [without which you will be prevented from doing so. Period].
- “Yes, we’re going to get to an endemic phase of all of this, but that doesn’t change the “need” to continue to “protect” the citizens of a nation from [ANY AND ALL what they, at their sole discretion, have determined to be] “highly transmissible and communicable diseases” [by requiring endless vaccinations and boosters for the rest of your life just to be allowed to participate in society].
- Vaccination verification will be increasingly important at an international level. And so if we want to enable ALL of our citizens from EVERY state to be able to participate in the “safe travel” across international boundaries and to participate in international commerce…[of course, you won’t be allowed to participate without it], it’d be important for our government officials from every state to enable [read as, force; mandate] this.”
- Digital IDs Can Be Tied to Law Enforcement, Retail and More
Right now, vaccine passports are highlighting access to one facet of your health records…COVID-19 shots…but they’re unlikely to stay that way. Disguised as a tool for “convenience and safety,” Digitized IDs, such as mobile driver’s licenses, are coming and will be embedded into everyday life and used to control everything from food and sustainability to travel and mobility.
- GET Group North America is among those working fervently to create “secure ID credentials,” which includes the release of an international standard for mobile driver’s licenses and mobile IDs (mID). The standards were approved August 18, 2021, for publication, clearing the way for “global ID and Driver’s License Issuers to confidently deploy mDL [mobile driver’s license] solutions, and for Verifiers around the world to “implement” or “adopt” [read as: force, mandate] mDL readers.”
- GET’s Mobile ID also intends to go far beyond a typical driver’s license, to act as a digital identity that will tie in to retail, health care, law enforcement and travel sectors. The pandemic accelerated what was previously a gradual transition to digital, using the public health “dogma” [outright lies and propaganda] that it would be “better” [for the Technocratic elites in their efforts to permanently enslave you by coercing you to fall into their trap, where there will be no escape] to not pass physical documents and IDs back and forth. DON’T FALL FOR THIS TRAP; THERE WILL BE NO ESCAPE.
- mDLs and mIDs are also intended to provide a streamlined identification verification system that can be used globally, doing away with different IDs for individual States [and thereby enslave you under a system of central Technocratic control, as planned under the Great Reset].
- Ultimately, the IDs will also morph into vaccine passports, so that one digital ID will create a digital trail of your every move. The introduction of digital IDs and vaccine passports in the U.S. is laying the infrastructure for a social credit system. China’s social credit system, a massive undertaking of government surveillance that aims to combine 600 million surveillance cameras [Orwell’s “Big Brother” is watching your every move]…about one for every two citizens…with facial recognition technology, has the reported goal of being able to identify anyone, anywhere, within three seconds.
- How Digital Passports Could Affect Your Finances
Globally, a unified front is emerging to put systems, including ever-expanding plans for digital currency, vaccine passports and digital IDs, into place for control and power, like the ability to track…and tax… everything you do. If you buy their self-determined “wrong” products or foods [in their sole discretion], you could be penalized by being heavily taxed, for instance, and there’s no limit to how high the tax could go or what products or activities could be affected. “It’s a total enslavement system,” former BlackRock portfolio manager Edward Dowd explained. “And then they can cut off your digital currency if you “behave badly” [refuse to bow down to their every demand], like they do in China… digital currency and social credit will be tied together. If you’re a ‘bad citizen’ [you oppose their totalitarian agenda], they simply turn off your digital currency and you disappear”… literally penniless. [YOU NEED TO READ THAT AGAIN, BRETHREN]
- In the documentary “Cash or Card…Will COVID-19 Kill Cash?” producer Kersten Schüssler also asked some important questions, like what’s at stake if society truly goes cashless? The answer is… BOTH YOUR PRIVACY AND YOUR FREEDOM.
The World Economic Forum (WEF), for instance, has been vocal about its agenda of moving away from cash and to a digital currency, including in the U.S., for years. But the pandemic led to a drastic acceleration. Keep in mind, the digital footprints or financial data trails that you leave every time you pay by credit card or mobile app are being watched closely. Information like how much alcohol you drink or how much you spend on vacation can all be tracked and “sold to the highest bidder.” We’re at a point where once just fledgling startups will have morphed into immense information empires. Our information and our privacy will then be completely in their hands. These monopolies lead to uncontrolled power that, in turn, leads people to be even more constrained…to the point where they are living in a society based increasingly on surveillance, with digital payments and further surveillance as a necessary part of this plan. Eventually, your entire financial life will also be tied to your digital ID or passport. In a figure that describes digital identity systems in our everyday lives, WEF envisions that digital IDs/Vaccine Passports, will encompass:
*Health care — to access insurance, monitor health devices and wearables, and prove your “qualifications” (for providers);
*Smart cities — to monitor devices that transmit data about energy usage, air quality and traffic congestion;
*Telecommunications — for individuals to use devices, and service providers whose purpose is to monitor them;
*E-government — for individuals to file taxes, vote and collect benefits [such as Social Security; Medicare; Medicaid];
*Social platforms — for social interactions;
*E-commerce — to shop, conduct business transactions and secure payments;
*Financial services — to open bank accounts and carry out financial transactions online;
*Food and sustainability — to verify the origin of produce and enhance traceability in supply chains;
*Travel and mobility — to plan trips and be granted permission to go through border control between countries or regions;
*Humanitarian response — to access services and demonstrate qualifications to work in a foreign country.
- 22 Ways to Stop Vaccine Passports
Avoiding vaccine passports and digital IDs OF ANY KIND is an important step to stopping the advancement of Global Totalitarian Control. How can they be stopped? Journalist Lynn highlighted 22 steps you can use to opt out of the madness and protect your privacy and freedom:
*Do NOT comply, whether or not you’re coerced, bribed, guilted, intimidated, or manipulated into complying. “Civil disobedience is necessary.”
*Avoid ALL digital identities and vaccine ID passports offered by banks, driver’s license facilities and other industries as a means of increasing “access” or “convenience.”
*DO NOT support establishments that require proof of vaccination or negative test. If you do, give them a card that reads, “I will not be a human experiment of a gene therapy jab for a virus that has a 99.98% survival rate.”
*Move your money from large banks to small, family-owned banks and small credit unions. “If 10% of people did this, it would create a huge shift.”
*Build family or local community energy and food systems, as “resilient energy and food supplies will go a long way against their digital financial blackmailing systems.”
*Boycott Amazon and big box stores that are “building the infrastructure to enslave humanity.”
*Use cash as much as possible, as it allows you to avoid being tracked via your bank account and keeps your spending behaviors from being analyzed and used to manipulate industries, supply chains, and markets.
*Leave your cellphone at home and avoid any and all data-tracking apps.
*Limit the personal data you share online, on paper, and anywhere else.
*Avoid purchasing “smart” products of any kind, such as smart televisions and Alexa devices. “These products are all used for surveillance purposes via audio, some visual, and data aggregating, not to mention potential integrated mind control technologies.”
*Clear as many debts as you can so you aren’t beholden to anyone. “Invest in people, learning trade skills, family and community, hard assets, proper schooling for your children…which might mean a local homeschool network…local farmers, any necessary supplies or equipment you feel you need, your health and peace of mind.”
*Tell your friends, family and acquaintances about the real goal of digital identities, which is to “put you on the Blockchain to surveil and control your every move.”
*Be aware that it is not legal to require a person to get injected while the “vaccine” is still under Emergency Use Authorization [EUA]…which it still is. “Though the FDA has approved Pfizer’s Comirnaty jab, Pfizer has chosen to not yet produce it for the U.S., and instead are continuing to supply the EUA jab.”
*Be there for those who have received the injection and are having adverse events or choosing not to get boosters. “Help them through it and find medical professionals that are aware of what is actually happening and will assist them” [Americas Frontline Doctors: americasfrontlinedoctors.org].
*Establish financial security outside the system, such as by learning or teaching trade skills and establishing networking and teamwork opportunities for people to build and work together within their local community.
*Contact your investment adviser or asset manager. Give them a list of companies involved in vaccine passports and pushing the agenda, and tell them you no longer want to support them.
*Contact your local sheriff. There are 3,081 sheriffs in the U.S., which should be contacted by phone, email and mail. They have the power to not enforce illogical or illegal demands.
*Email your state representative to block vaccine passports and digital IDs. Support and consider donating to those who are taking action against injection mandates and passports.
*Call your senators and demand that they oppose the Federal Vaccine Database Bill H.R. 550, which would allow the development of a Federal Vaccination Registry.
*Share messages of truth around your community. You can spread the word using flyers, postcards, stickers or “swag with a message.”
*Maintain resources…medical, legal, and otherwise…to fight the COVID-19 tyranny and stay updated on legal action and legislation against COVID-19 mandates.
*Visualize a better future for all,where these corrupt individuals are stopped in their tracks.” https://www.dropbox.com/s/eq9qk0kvilvr3q2/15-07-digital-vaccine-passport-pdf.pdf?dl=0
The Almighty One
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. [Isa 40:31]
My beloved child…Your waiting upon God will depend greatly on your faith of Who I am. It is as I reveal Myself as the Everlasting and Almighty One, and that revelation enters your soul, that your waiting will become the spontaneous expression of what you know Me to be…a God altogether worthy to be waited upon. My children are to “mount up with wings as eagles;” you are to live a Heavenly life, in the very Presence and Love and Joy of God. You are to fully embrace My Eternal Promise prepared for My children, resting in Me with an unruffled child-like rest and abiding in Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy all the days of your life on the face of the Earth, and then afterwards together with Me in Heaven for all eternity.
** **, hast thou not known, hast thou not heard, that the Everlasting One… the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the Earth… fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. So far from it…He giveth Power to the faint, and to them that have no might He increaseth strength. Even the youths…the glory of young men is in their strength…even the youths shall faint, and the young men shall utterly fall: all that is accounted strong with man shall come to nought. But they that wait upon the Lord…on the Everlasting One, Who fainteth not, neither is weary…they shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and…listen now, they shall be strong with the strength of God, and even as He…shall not be weary; they shall walk and… even as He…not faint. [Isa 40:28-31] As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: so the LORD alone did lead him. [Deut 32:11-12] To whom then will you liken Me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number. He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in Power; not one faileth. Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, “My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?” [Isa 40:25-27]
Precious child! You are born of God; a child of the Most High God! You have the eagles wings! You may not have fully known it; you may not have yet used them; but I, your God and Father, can and will indeed teach you to use them. I will stir up your nest. I will disappoint your hopes. I will bring down your confidence. I will make you fear and tremble; as all your strength fails, you will feel utterly weary and helpless. And yet, even so, all the while I am spreading My strong wings for you to rest your weakness on, and offering My Everlasting Creator-Strength to work in you. And all I ask, ** **, is that you should sink down in your weariness and wait upon Me; and allow Me in My Jehovah-Strength to carry you as you ride upon the wings of My Omnipotence. You need only lift up your eyes, and behold your God! You need only listen to Me Who assures you that I never grow tired or weary, Who promises that you too shall not faint nor be weary, Who asks nothing but this one thing…that you should wait solely and only upon Me! Oh beloved child, with such a Father…so mighty, so faithful, so tender…why would you not set your heart to continually wait only upon God?!
Child of God! Have you never known; have you never understood? I am the Sovereign All-Ruler over all things, over all Creation…Sovereign over the heavens and all that’s in it, Sovereign over the Earth and all that’s on it, Sovereign over the spirit world and all that’s in it, Sovereign over everything that touches your life. At My command the heavens were created, and all their starry host by the breath of My mouth. For I spoke, and it came into existence; I commanded, and it stood fast. I nullify the counsel of the nations; I thwart the thoughts and plans of its peoples! But My Own plans stand firm forever, the purposes of My Sovereign will prevail throughout all generations! Before Me, all the nations of the Earth and their inhabitants are but a drop in a bucket…no more than dust on the scales. I accomplish My Own will in dealing with the powers of Heaven and the peoples of the Earth. No one can hold back My hand or question Me concerning What I am doing! [Ps 33:6, 9-11; Dan 4:35]
** **, I exercise My Sovereignty perfectly over all Creation. I exercise My Sovereignty immediately, completely, and continually over all things; I am not a God Who is careless, complacent, or indifferent. Remember the former things, those of long ago. I am God, and there is none other; I am God, and there is none like Me. From the very beginning I had made known the future, and told you beforehand what is yet to come, saying, “My purposes will stand, and I will do all in accordance with My Own will.” [Isa 46:9-10] My beloved child, I solemnly assure you: nothing takes place on the face of this Earth, nothing takes place in the heavens above, nothing takes place in the spirit world, and nothing can touch your life, apart from My having either Personally caused it to happen, or My having specifically, consciously, and deliberately allowed it to happen. And all to accomplish My Own good purpose. I Myself have sworn, “Most assuredly…as I have planned, so shall it come to pass; as I have purposed, so shall it stand! I Myself have purposed, and no one can override Me! My hand is stretched out, and no one can turn it back or hinder Me!” Beloved…are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from My knowledge and consent! I know the very number of hairs on your head…not one hair of your head will fall to the ground apart from My will! [Isa 14:24, 27; Matt 10:29-30]
Precious child…all that I do is necessarily the very best, very kindest, most loving thing that can possibly be. And although oftentimes you may not understand…yet, even so, you can trust in Me with an unwavering child-like trust. For I make all things work together for your good. Are you still unwilling to wholeheartedly trust Me, ** **? Concerning things yet to come, do you question Me about what the future holds for My children? Would you dictate to Me what the work of My hands should be? It is I Who made the Earth and created Mankind upon it! My Own hands stretched out the heavens; I alone marshaled their starry hosts! [Isa 45:11-12]
Lord God Almighty…I worship Your majesty; Your Name is majestic in all the Earth! 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. The mountains quake before You, and the hills melt away. The very mountains melt like wax in Your Presence! The Earth trembles at Your Presence…the world and all who live in it. Heaven and Earth flee from the Almightiness of Your Presence!
Blessed Jesus…I stand in awe of the Sacrificial Lamb of God! You came into this world clothed in meekness, lowliness, and humility. You loved me with an Everlasting Love, and You voluntarily lay down Your life for me, even unto death. No one took Your life, Lord Jesus; You were free to lay it down, and free to take it up again. You stretched out Your arms on a cross on my behalf, and declared, “IT IS FINISHED”…for all time, and for all Eternity.
IT IS FINISHED! The Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured my eternal union with You, Lord…joined inseparably together with You in an eternal living union of oneness as the bride of Christ in a divine spiritual marriage…flesh of Your flesh and bone of Your bones.
IT IS FINISHED! The Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured that the eternal purpose for which God created me…to be joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship…stands eternally fulfilled.
IT IS FINISHED! The Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured my judicial status of eternal righteousness before God as an accomplished and finished fact.
IT IS FINISHED! The Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured my eternal access into the Holy Of Holies, and into the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father…as my birth-right.
IT IS FINISHED! The Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured that the Eternal Holy Spirit was indeed given as God’s Eternal Gift to dwell in me, never to leave me, never to forsake me…to be the Power in me Who continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ in our divine spiritual marriage.
IT IS FINISHED! The Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured that the Eternal Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit is now made continually available to me, Whose Power in me continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life faithfully within the Holy Of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father, in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
Abba Father…oftentimes I am so tired, so weary, so worn. Oftentimes I have so little energy, so little strength, so little stamina. But Father, You promised!…if only I would just wait upon You, You would renew my energy, my strength, my stamina. You assured me that I shall mount up with wings as eagles; that I shall run and not be weary; that I shall walk, and not faint. You assured me that, as Your child, I indeed have the eagles wings, and that You will indeed teach me to use them. And so, Father, in the Power of Your enabling grace I embrace this blessed life: 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!
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:
Waiting upon God is the single most important habit of my spiritual life, and the essence of true religion; it is itself the highest privilege of the creature and the highest blessedness of His redeemed child. As I wait upon God, and cooperate with His grace, and respond to His Holy Spirit, He Personally works in me both to will and to do by the Power of His Holy Spirit. My soul, wait thou only upon God! So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” [ Zech 4:6]
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 everyday 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 everyday 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.
My brothers and sisters in Christ…living 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!
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 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!
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!:
Open my eyes, Lord, I want to see Jesus;
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]
The Bible warns there will be the Anti-christ…a man who proclaims to be God…who will unite the world in a one world government, with a one world financial system, and establish a one world religion.
While we cannot predict “the day or the hour,” when you put all these components together, it’s starting to look even now a lot like the beginnings of the End Times.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name! [Revelation 13:16-17]
- The vaccine mandate with its “VACCINE PASSPORT/DIGITAL ID,” without which you won’t be able to buy or sell…your kids won’t be able to attend school, you will not be allowed to go to work, or go into any store or facility open to the public, or travel anywhere, or attend any sporting events or live entertainment, or to enter movie theaters, or do anything…is the forerunner of, and preparation for, the mark of the Beast.
- The GLOBAL RESET with its one world government and one world financial system…now being ushered in through the on-going destruction of the Constitutional Republic of America which stood in the way of the principles and dictates of the Anti-christ…is the preparation of the way for the coming rule and reign of the Anti-christ.
1] Destruction of America: Preparation of the Way For the Anti-christ
There were 5 chilling prophetic dreams posted by Pastor Dana Cornerstone that portrayed the utter destruction of America. I have been writing about this nearly every day for 18 months already, and so the dreams are not really prophesy, they are a confirmation of the Holy Spirit of what is already taking place!
I am going to post one dream each day for the next 5 days; following is the 2nd one. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour.
- 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=p7rfMn9eMrY
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: Preparation of the Way For the Anti-christ
Brethren…you need to watch this Pastor Dana prophetic dream concerning ominous events that will take place during December, and January. We see all of these things being foreshadowed even now in our everyday news…
- Baltic Dry Index dead…no movement of goods, no global trade; ships anchored in ports, nothing moving at sea;
people standing for hours on long food lines;
Nationwide power outages;
people being housed in shelters;
market crashes and yields lost;
Great sadness throughout the land; people seemed very dazed and very confused;
Depression as a creature, choking people, pushing them down;
God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation:
Perhaps God is now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid, or severe food shortages resulting from cargo ships stranded unloaded in our harbors…
- I don’t know; I can’t answer that. Even so…This is where I continue to stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place.
And so I continue to encourage you…Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take 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.
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]
Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of Your Throne; unfailing Love and Faithfulness go before You! Blessed are those who have learned to worship Your Majesty, who walk in the inaccessible light of the Glory of Your Presence, O Lord! I rejoice in Your Name all day long; I continually praise Your righteousness! For You are my glory and my strength, and by Your favor I am more than a conqueror, with overwhelming victory! [Ps 89:14-17]
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/ and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:
- Revelation 13:16-20
He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark.The mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations. His number is 666.
Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.
First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.
The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.
And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.
Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration. The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit. And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!
- Revelation 14:9-12
A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb! And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever! There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!”This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
- Revelation 14:17-20
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple,“Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
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.
