Blessed Jesus…There is nothing whatsoever that I boast about before the souls of Men but Your cross. You voluntarily endured a sacrificial death upon that cross at Calvary on my behalf. Therefore I boast solely and only about Your cross, which set me free from the eternal penalty for sin, set me free from the eternal power of sin to cause eternal death, and will in that soon-coming day set me forever free from the very presence of sin.
See what love my Father has lavished upon me…that I am known by Him, and embraced by Him, as His Own child…a child of the Most High God.
Abba Father…I am Your child, solely and only by virtue of the eternal power and eternal worth of the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus. But I am also Your child wholly and always because of the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus. Your Divine Son Jesus took my filthy rags of sin upon His Own self on that cross at Calvary, and in exchange gave me the white robes of His Own Righteousness…on that momentous day when I personally received Him as the free gift of eternal life, in exchange for my free will henceforth surrendered to Him as Lord over my life.
I cannot possess Christ Jesus and my free will both at the same time. They are mutually exclusive. I must choose one or the other…but I cannot have both at the same time. Choosing my free will is, by default, a rejection of Christ. Jesus is both Savior and Lord. I cannot choose just half of Jesus… Jesus as Savior but not Jesus as Lord. And brethren, in the words of Andrew Murray, if in your every day life Jesus is not Lord OF ALL, then He is not Lord AT ALL.
As a true disciple of Christ Your Son, there is nothing in this physical realm that attracts my attention…neither any things this world has to offer, nor any people in this world… that I desire to spend my precious and priceless time engaged in or with, that competes with my attraction to spend my time in Your Presence with You. There is nothing in this physical realm that I desire to give my affections to…neither any things this world has to offer nor any people in this world…that I desire to spend my precious and priceless time being engaged in or with, that competes with my affection for You and my desire to spend my time with You in the Holy of Holies.
I yearn to have You and to hold You…above all others and all else this world has to offer…as the choicest, most precious treasure of my heart;
I love You and cherish You…above all others and all else this world has to offer…reserving for You alone my sweetest, most tender affections.
My heart is inflamed with yearning to linger in Your Presence, just sitting at Your feet.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Disaster! An unheard of disaster is coming. The end has come! The end has come! It has roused itself against you. It has come! Doom has come upon you…you who dwell in the land. The time has come, the day is near; shouts of anguish will be heard on the mountains, not shouts of joy. I am about to pour out My wrath on you and spend My anger against you; I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices. I will not look on you with pity or spare you; I will repay you in accordance with your conduct and the detestable practices among you. Then you will know that it is I, the Lord, who strikes the blow. The day of judgment is here; your destruction awaits! The people’s wickedness, pride, and arrogance have blossomed to full flower. Their violence has grown into a rod that will beat them for their wickedness. None of these proud and wicked people will survive…no wealth, nothing of value. Yes, the time has come; the day has arrived! Buyers should not rejoice over bargains, nor sellers grieve over losses, for all of them will fall under My terrible anger. Even if the merchants survive, they will never return to their business. For what God has said applies to everyone…it will not be changed! Not one person whose life is twisted by sin will ever recover. [Ezek 7:5-13]
Great Reset: Preparation Of Way For Rule & Reign Of The Anti-christ
Presentation: Dr. Mercola: New Food System Will Stop at Nothing to Control You. With alleged outbreaks of bird flu together with drought and fertilizer shortages (and farmers paid off to NOT farm all their available land) the global food system is under a coordinated and intentional attack to orchestrate food shortages and famine. The globalist takeover is coming at us from every possible angle. Whether we’re talking about bio-security, finance, housing, health care, energy, transportation or food, all the changes we’re now seeing have one goal, and that is to force compliance with a totalitarian slave system. Their ultimate goal: every human being, every piece of food, resource, and product on this planet will be tracked and traced via blockchain. This isn’t a theory…it is their goal. In July, 2021, the FDA released their ‘New Era of Smarter Food Safety’ which consists of using tech-enabled traceability for a digital, traceable food system, from farm to plate using blockchain. READ THAT AGAIN, BRETHREN!
- The global food system, and protein sources in particular, are currently under coordinated and intentional attacks to manufacture food shortages and famine. The globalist elite intend to eliminate traditional farming and livestock and replace it with indoor-grown produce and lab-created protein alternatives that they own and control. Eventually, your ability to even buy food will be tied to your digital identity and social credit score.
- While the presence of hundreds of food brands gives the appearance of market competition, the reality is that the food industry is monopolized by fewer than a dozen companies, and all of them, in turn, are largely owned by BlackRock and Vanguard. The growing fake meat market is similarly dominated by a very small number of large food giants which, again, are also owned by BlackRock and Vanguard.
- “Whoever controls the food supply controls the people; whoever controls the energy can control whole continents; whoever controls money can control the world.” This famous quote by Henry Kissinger is ringing more and more true by the week. The globalists already control the majority of the money, are moving ever so swiftly to convert the energy system over into [Green Energy] systems they are all invested in, and have been taking drastic measures to control the food industry while running much of it under the radar. If they control the seeds they control the food, and if they control the food they can use the digital ID to control consumer access to the food.
- While a rash of fires has been “coincidentally and suddenly” destroying food processing, meat, and fertilizer plants…during a time where farmers are hurting and supply chain issues are kicking in…an entire traceable alternative food infrastructure system has already been built in multiple cities and is making its way across the globe. The USDA and FDA have already approved lab grown meat, genetically modified cattle, and are funding the globalists to research and develop cellular agriculture as well as indoor growers and genetics companies.
- Union Pacific is mandating railroad shipping reductions by 20%, impacting CF Industries Holdings, the world’s largest fertilizer company. Vanguard, BlackRock and State Street “just so happen” to be the top shareholders of Union Pacific, and BlackRock and Vanguard are in the top three shareholders of CF Industries Holdings.
- By mapping some of the largest vertical farms, it reveals the crops, grocery stores involved, locations, and billions pouring in by globalist investors and shareholders. It quickly becomes evident that this is the global plan to control all produce…ingredients that go into all food products.
- Food Security Is Undermined by Patentable Food
GMOs already account for 75 to 80% of food Americans consume, and once fresh produce is under patent, that percentage will inch closer to 100%. The University of California is also working on plant-based mRNA vaccines. The idea there is to disseminate vaccines through the conventional food supply. BRETHREN…YOU NEED TO READ THAT AGAIN! This is outright diabolic; we will not even be able to trust our current food supply, which puts a whole new spin on the old adage to “Let thy food be thy medicine.”
- Meanwhile, the Consultative Group of International Agriculture Research (CGIAR) holds the world’s largest private seed banks consisting of 10% of the worldwide germplasm across the globe, which is controlled by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller and Ford Foundations, and World Bank, managing 768,576 accessions of hijacked farmers seeds. What’s going to happen to the farmers when these astronomically enormous indoor vertical farm facilities have taken over every major city, locked in contracts with all major grocery store chains, and are funded by some of the same billionaire globalists who are seeking to control human beings through every industry for their fourth industrial revolution?
- It’s a legitimate concern. Add ‘gene-editing,’ ‘smart,’ ‘traceable,’ and ‘net zero’ to the production of these facilities, and the fact that they are still moving full speed ahead on digital IDs and currency, and it becomes even more concerning. Whereas this provides a lot of explanation on the absolute intentional demolition to all of our farmers on the seed, vegetable, and produce front, people should also be aware of what’s been taking place with cattle ranchers and the globalists’ plan to take over the meat industry as well.
- Controlled Demolition of the Protein Supply Is Underway
In a previous weaponized bird flu article, alleged outbreaks of bird flu and COVID-19 in food animals, along with drought and fertilizer shortages, have led to the mass culling of flocks and cattle herds around the world. So much so, we’re now told to expect egg, poultry and meat shortages. Add to that a global fertilizer shortage that is limiting the amount of animal feed that can be produced this year, and the “curious unexplainable decision” to limit U.S. fertilizer shipments on trains, which restricts distribution and raises the cost of what little remains. The price of fertilizer has also “skyrocketed to absurd heights that have never been seen before.” Farmers won’t have a readily available supply of animal feed for their livestock.
- The U.S. and U.K. are also paying farmers to NOT farm all their available land; California is paying farmers to grow less, ostensibly [outright lying through their teeth] “to save water”, and the U.K. is encouraging farmers to retire by offering them a lump sum of £100,000… all while at the same time publicly “predicting” the looming food shortages they are themselves relentlessly involved in orchestrating. On top of that, the two largest water reservoirs in California have also fallen to “critically low levels,” and wildfires are devastating agricultural land across the western half of the U.S.
- It’s in plain sight…food production is being blatantly and diabolically attacked, and irrationally restricted, on so many fronts. IT’S CLEARLY AN INTENTIONAL DEMOLITION OF PRIMARY PROTEIN SOURCES… MEAT, EGG, DAIRY. To guarantee all their goals are locked into place and the UN 2030 agenda is achieved…disrupting the fertilizer industry, food supply chain, and a sudden rash of “coincidental” fires to food processing plants sure would help to seal the deal, would it not?
- The Emperor Has No Clothes
In a blatantly self-serving gesture, Gates has publicly called for the West to quit eating beef and transition to lab-grown meats, ostensibly “to address climate change.” He’s also railed against legislative attempts to make sure fake meats are properly labeled, since labeling would slow down public acceptance. Not surprisingly, Gates is financially invested in several fake meat companies. As “luck or godlike foresight” [more like diabolic] would have it, he’s also invested in genetically engineered fertilizer alternatives.
- Their ultimate goal: every human being, every piece of food, resource, and product on this planet will be tracked and traced via blockchain. This isn’t a theory…it is their goal. A digital identity to grant access to establishments, control financial spending, and trace everyone’s moves has been rolling out on multiple fronts, including the vaccine ID passport. Eventually they will try to move toward a chip, as it will be easier with bio-metrics being installed everywhere.
- We must work together to find a way forward and continue to say NO to the digital ID they are creating to control our access and spending, while together building self sufficiency and security. At the same time, we also have to reject globalist solutions like fake meat, gene-edited beef, GMO foods, and all the rest of it. It’s time to recognize that none of their solutions are for our benefit. They’re for our detriment…and it’s intentional. The World Economic Forum has declared that by 2030, you will own nothing. They mean it. They will take everything from us, including the right to grow our own food, if we let them.
Brethren…I have been warning as the Lord’s watchman for many months now about the Great Reset’s relentless agenda for the total enslavement of mankind…YOU WILL OWN NOTHING AND BE HAPPY…by means of a digital ID tied in to Central Bank Digital Currencies [CBDC’s]. Well…Here it comes!
News article: American Family Association: ‘Digital Dollar’ could compete with China…and copy it, too. President Joe Biden signed an executive order this week [March 11th] that moves the United States closer to a so-called “digital dollar,” and if that plan is throwing up warning signs, a financial analyst says there is a good reason to be concerned about your privacy and about government power.
- Several weeks ago, President Biden ordered the U.S. Treasury Dept. and numerous other agencies to study and report on the influence and oversight of so-called “cryptocurrencies,” such as Bitcoin.
- Biden’s order to study the digital dollar…formally called a Central Bank Digital Currency [CBDC]….is not a surprise, either, since the U.S. Federal Reserve announced in January, in a 40-page report, it was studying the issue and was seeking public comment.
- A CBDC could fundamentally change the structure of the U.S. financial system, the report itself states, “altering the roles and responsibilities of the private sector and the central bank.”
- John Berlau, a financial expert at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, tells AFN the most glaring issue is who is controlling your bank account. With the Central Bank Digital Currency, the Fed would be your banker. The bank account would be with the Fed. It would be a direct liability of the Fed instead of your private bank.
- According to Berlau, a powerful government that controls your bank account can monitor how you spend your money, too. “Government has the power,” he warns, “to not only credit your digital account but also debit…take away…if for some reason the government [in their sole discretion] thinks you’re being a “bad citizen” [expressing opposition to their totalitarian agenda].
- China’s citizens are witnessing that all-seeing power right now, Berlau points out, after China launched a digital form of the yuan in January. China’s introduction to a digital yuan comes after its communist government launched a “Social Credit System” in 2014 that monitors citizens, and punishes them, for everything from purchasing too many video games to criticizing the government on social media. https://afn.net/business/2022/03/11/digital-dollar-could-compete-with-china-and-copy-it-too/
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
The leaders of our Nation have rejected Your reproof and have rejected Your counsel continually throughout the years. Though You showed mercy to the wicked…even so, they still did not learn righteousness. Even in a land of uprightness, they keep on doing more and more evil, and regarded not the Majesty of the Lord. [Isa 26:10] They thought their own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding was superior to Yours; they thought they were so wise in their own eyes.
And so now in Your most severe judgment: “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat! Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.” You have stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons. You have caused their thinking to become utterly confused, so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation. You have caused the Nation’s leaders to engage in self-destruction; we are destroying our own selves…just as You caused the Midianites to fight against and kill one another before Gideon. We are now watching it unfold as it plays out day after day before our very eyes! 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. For My decision and determination and right it is to gather the nations together, to assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, even all the heat of My fierce anger; for in that day all the Earth shall be consumed with the fire of My jealous anger! [Deut 28:28; Zeph 3:8]
I, and I alone, am God; there is no God besides Me. I put to death and I bring to life, I wound and I heal, and no one can deliver out of My hand. As surely as I am the Living God, I raise My hand to Heaven and I vow: when I sharpen My flashing sword and begin to carry out justice, I will take vengeance on My adversaries and repay those who reject Me. My arrows will drip with their blood, and My sword shall devour their flesh…the blood of both the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders. So do not pray for this people [this Nation; America] nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with Me, for I will not listen to you. [Deut 32:39-42; Jer 7:16]
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted. For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; in returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. [Lam 3:26; Isa 7:4; Isa 30:15]
My beloved child…if you are to have your whole heart turned toward God, you must have it turned away from your own self, from all that occupies your self-life and self-interests, whether joy or sorrow. Everything that is not God Myself…that excites your fears, or stirs your self-efforts, or makes you conscious of self or the world around you, or awakens your hopes, or makes you glad, or seeks My gifts or workings… hinders you in your perfect waiting upon Me. Even the activity of your mind in studying My Word, or giving expression to its thoughts in prayer, the activities of your heart, with its desires and hopes and fears, may so engage you that you never come to the still waiting upon the All-Glorious One…your whole being prostrate in silence before Me. The very thought of God in My incomprehensible Majesty and Holiness should cause you to cover your mouth in hushed silence before Me: The LORD is in His Holy Temple: let all the Earth keep silence before Him. Hold thy peace at the Presence of the Lord GOD. Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for He is raised up out of His Holy habitation. [Hab 2:20; Zeph 1:7; Zech 2:13]
As long as your waiting upon God is chiefly regarded as an end toward more effectual prayer and the obtaining of your petitions, My child, this spirit of perfect quietness shall never be attained. But when it is seen that your waiting upon God is in itself an unspeakable blessedness, one of the highest forms of fellowship with the Holy One, your adoration of Me in all My Majesty, Glory, and Power will of necessity humble your soul into a holy stillness, making way for Me to speak and reveal Myself to you. Then it comes to the fulfillment of the precious promise that all of self and self-effort shall be humbled; the haughtiness of man shall be brought down, and I alone, the Lord, shall be exalted in that day.
** your name **, you are to take time to be separate from all friends and all duties, all cares and all joys, all self and its energy; time to be still and quiet before God alone. You shall find that this little season of silent worship will bring a peace and a rest that give a blessing not only in prayer, but all the day. The quietness is the confession of your child-like dependence upon God… that you are hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless in your own strength. ALL must be of Me, and apart from Me you can do nothing. It is in the confession of your child-like trust that your God and Father will in My time come to your help…that quiet unruffled child-like rest in Me alone. It is the confession of your desire to sink into your nothingness, and to let Me work and reveal Myself in you. Don’t you understand, precious child? It is not in trying but in trusting; not in running but in resting; not in wandering but in waiting; not in pondering but in praying; that you find the strength of the Lord. In your daily life, you need only let there be in your soul a quiet reverence in its continual waiting for your God and Father to do My wondrous work in you, an abiding watching against too deep engrossment with the things or the people of this world.
My beloved child! Do you not know? 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. I exercise My Sovereignty perfectly over all things… immediately, completely, and continually over all things; I am not a God Who is careless, complacent, or indifferent. 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. 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 My Sovereignty with an unwavering child-like trust. For I make all things work together for your good.
You are My child; I am Your Father and your God. My love for you is unconditional; it is not a response to who you are or what you do. I love you because of Who I AM.
My love for you is unfailing. You may fail Me, often do…but I will never fail you. I abide faithful.
My love for you is unchanging; I love you today…after all your years of sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections…the same as I did on the day you were born, when you were so pure, so innocent, so helpless. My love remains the same…yesterday, today, and forever.
My love for you is unending; it is eternal and everlasting. It will never perish, spoil, or fade. You can trust in My fathomless love for you with an unwavering child-like trust.
So why do you worry, why do you fret? Why are you anxious, afraid?
Let the words of My Divine Son Jesus to His disciples on their boat that afternoon…when they had lost all hope in the midst of a fierce storm, and they were saying “Don’t you care that we are about to die,”…ring in your own heart: Why are you frightened? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by the cares, concerns, and responsibilities of life. Cast the whole of your care…all your anxieties and distress, all your fears and worries, all your concerns and burdens, once and for all…upon Me, for I care for you affectionately and care about you watchfully.
Why do you become disappointed, discouraged; disheartened, disillusioned over results, outcomes, and conclusions of the work I have given you to do? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by results, outcomes, conclusions. Results belong to Me; it is My work, not yours. And no one can thwart My plans, or hinder My purposes, or override My will.
Why are you downcast, down-trodden, distraught, dismayed, distressed? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by circumstances, events, and things that touch your life. There are no such things as random occurrences, accidental happenings, or incidental incidences. I have either allowed them, or caused them, to touch your life…and for My Own good purposes.
Why do you lament over the past; why are you anguished about the present, and agonize over the future? Do you still have no faith? Yesterday is gone; it is unchangeable, unalterable, irreversible. Remain undaunted by your sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections. I am well able to restore the years the locusts have eaten.
Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before you, press on toward the mark for the prize of My high calling in Christ Jesus My Son. And do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Seek first My Kingdom and My Righteousness, and all necessary things will be provided for you as well.
As for today, My child…today is the day the Lord has made, so rejoice and be glad in it.
Why are you angry, upset, frustrated, irritated, annoyed? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by what people think or say or do. I, the Lord, am your helper; you needn’t be afraid. What can man do to you? Who shall separate you from the love of Christ My Son? Shall trouble or hardship, distress or persecution, famine, nakedness, danger or sword? No, in all these things you are more than a conqueror through Him Who loved you.
Why do you become impatient, or grow weary of waiting? Do you still have no faith? 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…abide with Me in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence. This is your birth-right as a child of the Most High God. If you will only just abide in My promised rest, you will be continually at rest in an unruffled child-like rest, and you will enjoy being with Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy. ** **, it is unbelief that keeps you from entering into My promised rest, and unbelief prevents you from remaining in My promised rest. No matter how great your pressures and trials, how anxious your thoughts; no matter how hopeless your situation, how clouded your future; no matter how sad your loss, how deep the agony of your soul; no matter how weary or burdened…come to Me, you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest! Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly, gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Abba Father…forgive me for my lack of faith, and enable me by the Power of Your enabling grace to trust in Your absolute Sovereignty over all Creation, and in Your jealous love for Your child. You have placed me like a seal over Your heart, like a seal on Your arm; Your love for me is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns within You like blazing fire, like a mighty flame! Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls…yet will I rejoice in the Lord; I will be joyful in God my Savior! The Sovereign Lord is my strength! You make my feet like hinds feet; You give me strength and courage, enabling me to walk upon my high places…places of trouble and suffering and responsibility! Hallelujah!
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. Blessed Holy Spirit…You are the Divine Nature dwelling in me, Whose Power in me continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life:
faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ;
faithfully within the Holy of Holies and the unclouded Presence of my Father in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
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…watching and waiting, looking off unto Him and listening for His voice…with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation…
for God to reveal to me His plans, His purposes, His will, 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.
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]
Following is a powerful message from the pulpit…1st 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 9/19: Socialism…A Cultural Prophesy: Dr. David Jeremiah. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhsu9JIYUbc
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: Preparing The Way For the Anti-christ
- Biden’s relentless agenda to destroy the fossil fuel industry. News article: Backlash ensues as President Biden suggests inflation a ‘chance’ to make ‘fundamental turn’ to clean energy. President Biden faced backlash after appearing to suggest that high gas prices will be a “good” opportunity to make a fundamental turn” to clean energy on Monday. We have a chance to make a fundamental turn toward renewable energy, electric vehicles, and not just electric vehicles but across the board,” Biden told the crowd of reporters.
- The Biden Administrations filthy, disgusting, repulsive, and Satanic agenda to destroy our children. News article: ‘A drag queen for every school’: The new Democratic platform.
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 4th & 5th one [two in the one dream]. I urge you to watch them and consider them in light of how events have unfolded even to this very hour.
- Data Dream: Fried circuits in cities crashing; clouds of smoke…like smoke signals. Then continuing on East to Philadelphia,
[4th] under the Liberty bell, and then an explosion. The Liberty Bell cracked in half, the 2 pieces laying on the rounded side on the ground. The intense heat began melting them; they could never be put back together again.
[5th] Circuits reach Capitol Bldg., explode; Capitol Bldg cracked in half. Figure in white [Holy Spirit] standing at podium where Presidents give State of Union address emphatically states: “A house divided against itself SHALL NOT STAND.” Then He walks to rear exit door, and flips the entire panel of light switches, one by one, until all the lights were out. https://youtu.be/ydpIwdhnucQ
Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…as they are even now…the people of the world learn righteousness. Though God shows grace to the wicked, even so, they still do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. [Luke 21:26; Isa 26:10]
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6] Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
I love my Country; I grew up here, and worked here, and enjoyed the freedoms we were given here. Even so…this Country is no longer the Country I grew up in. It has become something else…something totally different, something strange and foreign to me. We are a Nation no longer under the rule and Authority of God, and as a result so horribly transformed from what our Founding Fathers envisioned and birthed. Once a great and respected Christian Nation, God has made us the laughingstock of the world. This is what the Sovereign Lord said to Moses concerning the Israelites, and our Nation’s founding fathers warned it would apply to America as well: If you disobey the Lord your God and do not faithfully keep all His commands and laws that I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you in accordance with God’s solemn resolve to punish you as you deserve for disobeying Him.
Cursed shall you be in the city and
cursed shall you be in the field.
Cursed shall you be when you come in and
cursed shall you be when you go out.
The Lord will send upon you curses…calamitous events such as fires, floods, earthquakes, or pestilence that happen suddenly with a huge loss of life.
He will bring confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking Him. [Deut 15-16, 19-20]
Presented below is what it looks like…utter chaos…when God has determined by His Own Divine Decree to destroy a Nation, as He has America. Here is what a Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorship looks like as it continues to unilaterally shut down, trample over, and shred our every constitutional right that stands in its way.
Make no mistake about it…God Himself has Personally judged our Nation with utter destruction, by His Own Divine Decree. Man did not do this; God didn’t just allow this to happen, He determined it to happen. Just as He did not allow Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed, or allow the world to be destroyed by a Great Flood…He Personally caused it.
We are plunging into a deep and very dark abyss in American history, at warp speed! A new Democrat reign of terror is upon us, utterly obliterating our Constitutional Republic, free speech, free press, political playing field, and our personal liberty! We need to be fully aware of what is taking place in our Nation in order to know how to be prepared as ministers of the Lord during these End Times.
God has determined by Divine decree that our Nation will be destroyed. “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat! Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.” God has Personally stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons! [Rom 1:22] He has caused their thinking to become utterly confused…just as He had warned…so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation! You see it unfolding before your very eyes every day! The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused. [Deut 28:28]
Destruction of America
- Brethren…you need to watch this Pastor Dana prophetic dream concerning ominous events that will take place during December, and January. We see all of these things being foreshadowed even now in our everyday news…
Baltic Dry Index dead…no movement of goods, no global trade; ships anchored in ports, nothing moving at sea;
people standing for hours on long food lines;
Nationwide power outages;
people being housed in shelters;
market crashes and yields lost;
Great sadness throughout the land; people seemed very dazed and very confused;
Depression as a creature, choking people, pushing them down;
God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation:
- Perhaps God is now forewarning of something worse yet to come, even Nationwide…a cyber attack shutting down our electric grid, or severe food shortages resulting from cargo ships stranded unloaded in our harbors…I don’t know; I can’t answer that. Even so…This is where I continue to stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place.
And so I continue to encourage you…Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take place so as to not be overwhelmed by a severe scarcity of goods, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression!
You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. [Phil 2:14-16] We have been raised up by the Lord for such a time as this.
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6]
Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Beloved…I still hold to these words of warning from the Holy Spirit: “Brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things. Ready or not, Nation, here it comes! Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength. Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm! Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end.”
[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. [Ezek 14:13, 19, 20; Isa 26:10]
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/, and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
Revelation 13:1-18 [NIV; amplification in italics]
And the Dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea…the symbolic representation of the very person of the Antichrist himself, as well as the embodiment of all antichrists throughout all ages and in all places who were his forerunners! He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns…the symbolic representation of the sum total of this world’s political sovereignty and dominion throughout all ages and in all places, now in its final consummation…and on each head a blasphemous name exalting himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped. The Beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The Dragon gave the Beast his power and his throne and great authority, to be his fleshly agent through whom he could act out his murderous will of blasphemies, deceits, and bloody spite. One of the heads of the Beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed so that, though once dead, he enters again upon all the activities of life the same as if he never had been killed. Thus it is that this Beast is a man who once was living, who was fatally wounded, whose place was in the Abyss of lost souls, and who is now empowered by Satan to come forth out of the Abyss as a supernatural personage endowed with all the energy and supernatural powers of Satan himself, along with convincing evidences of his real prior identity. And though having been slain, he returns again to take the lead in the activities and administrations upon Earth, the chosen leader of all the sovereign powers of the Earth, given power and authority by them to act as the one sole Arch Regent of their time. The whole world was astonished by this…amazed at his regal appearance, and his wonderful array of every one of the most desirable human qualities, and his superhuman power…and followed the Beast, admiring him, delighting in him, and paying homage to him. He will be the idol of the world; all kings will gladly yield him their thrones, and give their dominion to him…such will be the splendor, and wisdom, and miraculous greatness of his teachings and his deeds. He is the anti-christ…Satan’s counterfeit to the Christ…the consummate antagonist and supplanter of everything Divine, who will perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect, if that were possible. Men worshiped the Dragon because he had given such authority to the Beast, and they also worshiped and adored the Beast and asked, “Who is like the Beast? Who can make war against him?”
The Beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his unparalleled authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander His name, His dwelling place, and those raptured and glorified saints who now live in Heaven…the Woman’s royal seed whom the Dragon had attempted to devour but who were snatched up by God to Heaven. He is at once Anti-God, Anti-Christ, and Anti-Spirit, antagonizing each particular Person of the Blessed Trinity, trampling on Their claims, usurping Their honors, putting himself into Their place, and abolishing all worship and recognition of either. He was given power to make war against the saints…the remaining offspring of the Woman upon the Earth…and against God’s Two Witnesses, and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the Earth will be compelled to worship the Beast; all whose names have not been written in the Book of Life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world will succumb to his ungodly decrees.
I forewarn you with the utmost urgency…he who has an ear, let him hear! If anyone is prepared to go into the self-imposed captivity of flight or exile to the mountains, the wilderness, the dens and caves of the Earth for the sake of his safety, into captivity he will indeed go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword because he dares to take up arms against the Beast, with the sword he will surely be killed.
This calls for unparalleled patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints remaining upon the Earth, as under the Antichrist all true worshipers shall be tested, tried, and persecuted as never before in all the ages.
Then I saw another beast, coming out of the Earth…the symbolic representation of the very person of the False Prophet himself, as well as the embodiment of all false prophets throughout all ages and in all places who were his forerunners! He had two horns like a gentle lamb, the symbolic representation of the sum total of this world’s wisdom throughout all ages and in all places, crystallized now into its final consummation as the world’s ultimate great system of indisputable, absolute, truth. But he spoke like a dragon, making professions and claims of absolute dominion over the minds, souls, consciences, and heart’s of people, thereby usurping the place and prerogatives of the Holy Spirit. He exercised all the authority of the first Beast, on his behalf, as his witness, consociate, and prime minister. And he made the very Earth, and all its inhabitants as their absolute oracle and spiritual advisor, worship the first Beast, whose fatal wound had been healed, as the one only God. And, having Satanic supernatural powers along with the Beast, he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from Heaven to Earth in full view of men! Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first Beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the Earth, that they would believe the lie. He then ordered them to set up an image in honor of the Beast who was fatally wounded by the sword and yet lived…the very “abomination of desolation” spoken of by Daniel the prophet…to be located in Jerusalem in the very temple built for Yahweh! He 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 antichrist 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 did 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 Antichrist, 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 13:1-18]
Following are several additional portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:
- Revelation 14:9-12
A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb! And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever! There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!” This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
- Revelation 14:17-20
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple, “Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickedness are ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
“Mystery Babylon” in the Book of Revelation is America [Rev 17:5], and the prophesy written by John is the utter destruction of America. We are the End Times Nation, the 7th and last of the great world powers throughout history that God has determined to utterly destroy. Six have already been destroyed: Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, and Rome. The destruction of America will now usher in the Great Tribulation and the Anti-christ. America has stood in the way of the Anti-christ, and now God, by His Own Divine Decree, has removed and destroyed our Nation…for obvious good reason…and to usher in the End Times of Biblical prophecy.
These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. [1 Cor 10:11; Rom 15:4] For the time has arrived for judgment, and it must begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the Gospel of God? Since judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News! If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners? Behold, since the uncompromisingly righteous are rewarded on Earth, one can be certain that the wicked and the sinner will also receive what they deserve. [1 Peter 4:17-18; Prov 11:31]
See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears My Name; why, then, would you think you will escape punishment? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all the inhabitants of the Earth, declares the Lord Almighty. Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them:
The Lord will roar from on high; He will thunder from His holy dwelling and roar mightily against His land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on the Earth. The tumult will resound to the ends of the Earth, for the Lord will bring charges against the nations; He will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword, declares the Lord. This is what the Lord Almighty says: Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the Earth. [Jer 25:29-32]
This is what the Most Holy, Most High, Triune God declares:
The Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire. Since everything on the Earth will be destroyed in this way, you ought to live a holy and godly life as you look forward to the coming Day of the Lord! Everyone who has this hope purifies himself, just as He is pure. So, beloved, since you are expecting these things to happen, be eager to be found by Him at His coming living a pure and blameless life and at peace…in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts. Let me warn you therefore, beloved, that knowing these things beforehand, you should be on your guard, lest you be carried away by the error of lawless and wicked persons. I don’t want you to lose your own secure footing. But grow in the special favor and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He Who called you is Holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am Holy.” [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him. [Matt 24:36-39, 42-44]
“Behold”, says the Lord Jesus in His last warning for the last opportunity offered to mankind to be among His redeemed, “I come for the last time like a thief in the night to gather those who would be among the elect! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, in watchfulness, prayer and readiness for the summons when it comes, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed, eternally without remedy.”
Morning by morning He dispenses His justice, and every new day He does not fail. Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! She obeys no one; she accepts no correction! She does not trust in the Lord; she does not draw near to her God. Its leaders are like roaring lions hunting for their victims. Its judges are like ravenous wolves at evening time, who by dawn have left no trace of their prey. Her prophets are arrogant liars seeking their own gain; they are treacherous men. Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law. Even so, the Lord within her is righteous; He does no wrong. Yet the wicked, without conscience and without shame, persist in doing evil. I, the Lord, have wiped out many nations, devastating their fortress walls and towers. Their streets are now deserted; their cities lie in silent ruin. There are no survivors…none at all. I thought, Surely they will have reverence for Me now! Surely they will listen to My warnings and accept My discipline and correction. Then I won’t need to strike again, destroying their homes nor visit all my punishments upon her. But no, they get up early to continue their evil deeds!
Therefore earnestly wait for Me, says the Lord, for the day when I rise up to the attack as accuser and judge! For My decision and determination and right it is to gather the nations together, to assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, even all the heat of My fierce anger; for in that day all the Earth shall be consumed with the fire of My jealous anger! [Zeph 3:1-8]
Wisdom shouts in the streets. She cries out in the public square. She calls to the crowds along the main street, to those gathered in front of the city gate: How long, you simpletons, will you insist on being simpleminded? How long will you mockers relish your mocking? How long will you fools hate knowledge? If only you would turn and repent and give heed to my reproof, behold, I will pour out My Spirit upon you, I will make My words known to you. I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come. I reached out to you, but you paid no attention. You ignored My advice, rejected the correction I offered, and would accept none of My reproof.
Therefore I will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic…when your panic comes as a storm and desolation and calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. When you cry for help, I will not answer. Though you anxiously search for Me, you will not find Me. Because you hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord. You rejected My advice and counsel, and despised all My reproof. Therefore you shall eat of the fruit of your own way and be satiated with your own devices. For simpletons turn away from Me…even unto their death. Fools are destroyed by their own self-confident complacency. But all who listen to Me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm. [Prov 1:20-33]
We have conveniently chosen to ignore the lessons of God’s judgment of destruction on every great empire throughout history…Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Rome…and now in our present day we have totally forgotten the lessons God has been trying to teach America over the years. Our godlessness has only and continually escalated through the years; we’ve sinned far worse than our ancestors EVER did! We are far more wicked than they EVER were! God has therefore determined by His Own Divine decree to destroy our Nation….and for obvious good reason! Brothers and sisters…IT IS FINISHED!
Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath against your enemies has passed. For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity. The Earth will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt. They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21] How long, Sovereign Lord, Holy and True, until you judge the inhabitants of the Earth and avenge our blood? [Rev 6:10]
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near! And so, my brothers and sisters, first of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of Creation.”
Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing. Tell the people, This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it. Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: The time has come for every prophecy of Mine to be fulfilled! [2 Peter 3:3-4, 10-12, 14, 17; 1 John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ezek 12:22-23]
God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. God’s holy remnant is called to a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our Forerunner. You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anyone & all others, and for anything & all else this world has to offer. Obedience is what characterizes the life of My child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night. You are called to a life of obedience. Obedience is better than sacrifice; rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as evil as worshiping idols. [1 Sam 15:22,23]
Wherefore brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by the way which He dedicated for us…a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of His flesh…let us then without further hesitation or delay draw nigh in fullness of faith; here let us continually abide in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10:19-20, 22] Those who abide in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [PS 91:1]
Friends, brothers and sisters, this is our Lord’s exhortation…
Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:
- Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church. The current ongoing persecution of the Church and of Christians is going to escalate exponentially; it is going to get MUCH WORSE.
- Pray for the cleansing of the corruption in the Church. God is going to expose and purge corruption within His Church, and separate the wheat from the chaff…separate His True church from the apostate churches that no longer belong to Him. He is going to expose false prophets and teachers, and wolves dressed in sheep clothing pretending to be shepherds.
These are the days of the separation of the wheat from the chaff. But also in those days there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves. They preach prosperity, wealth, and health; good times, and all is well. From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit. They dress the wound of My people as though it were not serious. “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush! They will subtly and cleverly teach their destructive heresies about God, even denying the Sovereign Lord Who bought them. Theirs will be a swift and terrible end.
Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of them, Christ and His true way will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies and cunning arguments to get hold of your money. With eyes full of adultery, their lust is never satisfied. They make a game of beguiling and luring unstable people into sin. They train themselves to be greedy; they are doomed and cursed. But God condemned them long ago, and their eternal misery is on the way.
The word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: Hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing! Your prophets, O Israel, are like jackals among ruins. You have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the Day of the Lord. Their visions are false and their divinations a lie. They say, “The Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them; yet they expect their words to be fulfilled. Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken? Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord. My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. [Jer 6:13-15; 2 Peter 2:1-3, 14; Ezek 13:1-9]
- Pray for a Great Harvest. It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere. Jesus said to them, “Go throughout the whole world and preach the good news of the Gospel to everyone, everywhere. With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me. [Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47]
And now, Lord God Almighty…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who sow in tears, invoking the Lord of the Harvest, will reap with songs of Joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying bountiful sheaves from the harvest with him! [Ps 126:3-6]
Arise My bride, and prepare for battle
There is going to be severe Satanic, demonic attacks against God’s holy remnant of committed, uncompromising, steadfast Christians, pastors, and leaders [not the lukewarm], and against marriages, families, and children. There is going to be severe attacks and intense persecution coming from pretending “Christians” within the church, against pastors who preach the uncompromised Word of God. For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching for something self-pleasing and gratifying, they will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. [2 Tim 4:3-5]
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. [Matt 24:10-14]
Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. [Rev 12:12]
Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face
Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.
Then the angel said to me, “Write this down: Blessed are those summoned to the marriage banquet of the Lamb…all true believers who are members of His Universal Church. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with Power and great Glory. And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect…God’s holy people…from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.” And he said to me further, “These are the True Words of God.” [Rev 19:9]
Blessed Jesus…I rejoice and shout triumphantly for joy! I celebrate and ascribe to You glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb draws near, and Your bride, the Universal Church and each of her members, has been preparing herself and has made herself ready! [Rev 19:7] Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! For our Lord God, Sovereign All-Ruler, reigns! Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him Glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready. The finest linen, dazzling and white, was given her to wear. Then the angel said to me, “Write: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage banquet of the Lamb!” [John…Rev 19:6-9; Luke 14:15-23]
The washing of one’s robes and the keeping of one’s garments relates to this very attitude and habit of looking for the return of Christ as an imminent event. Brethren, as you hope to walk those golden streets, and eat of those immortal fruits, see to it that you have your garments clean and your loins girded about like unto men waiting for their Lord. [Seiss…Rev 21:9-22:5]
Then the king said to his servants, “The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.” So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding garment. “Friend,” he asked, “How did you come in here without putting on the appropriate wedding garment?” The man was speechless. Then the king told the attendants, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are invited and summoned, but few are chosen.” [Matt 22:8-14]
ENDURE TO THE END
Behold, I am coming quickly. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…I will make a pillar in the Sanctuary of My God. Never again will you leave it. I will write on you the name of My God and you will be a citizen in the city of My God…the new Jerusalem…which will come down out of Heaven from My God; I will also write on you My Own new name.
