A Time to Give Thanks

This may seem like a strange time to give thanks as one turmoil after another is rocking our countries and societies. It must have seemed that way also for the Israelites as they left the bondage of Egypt. Even though there was bondage, it was all many of them had known and there is a way one can become used to the trials of life until you forget the freedom that was once yours. There was a way they could be comfortable with the “fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic” of Egypt. But God was calling them to a higher level. He was calling them to remember the Creation and what they had been created for – freedom! He was calling them home.


Song by Micah Cooley of Day of Eternity

The message of this song is God is inviting each of us to come home like the prodigal son, there is a place for us at God’s Table.

We are once again approaching the time to remember what God created us for – Thanksgiving.  Jesus taught us to pray, “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.” How fortunate to be adopted by a Father who cares about every detail of our lives – a perfect father who never abandons us or fails us. His restrictions in our lives are always for our protection and good. Oh, how He is to be honored and His name hallowed. As you consider all the world’s kingdoms, there are none perfect, only some less bad than others but, His kingdom is perfect in every aspect. Any wise people would want to model their governments on His as much as humanly possible. He knows our past, present, and future and He knows how to overcome the chief enemy of our souls, Satan, and He loves us! Who in their right mind wouldn’t want One with such ability to show us His will for us daily?

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving remember that we should be thankful every day for God’s abundant goodness and favor bestowed on us daily.


(The Song of Job, written by Israel Cooley and sung by Day of Eternity)

It would be good to remember what the Holy Scripture have to say about Thanksgiving and what blessings we have been given in America.

learning the truth

“If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried.” – Leviticus 7:12

The month of Thanksgiving is approaching. Thanksgiving is a time for reflection on the testing and blessings of our lives. Yes, even trials and testing are to be given thanks for because they serve to make us stronger than we were before. And blessings because they are a sign of God’s goodness to us. Sadly, most of us receive these blessings without so much as a thank you. And we often take them for granted, that is until they are taken away.

But thanksgiving is so important for our well-being that God even gave a special offering for it called the “sacrifice of Thanksgiving”. It was to be given with unleavened cakes mingled with oil. The cakes represent bread which is the staff of life and later Jesus who is the ‘bread of life’. In other words, all the things that work on our behalf to bring forth life. These cakes were to be ‘unleavened’ which means not tainted by sin that corrupts and destroys the life intended. This sacrifice is later referred to in the New Testament in the Lord’s Supper where Paul writes –

“For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner (in sin) eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.” – 1 Cor. 11:29

Then the cakes were also to be mingled with oil, which represented the Holy Spirit. It was the Holy Spirit that Jesus sent to be with us when He rose into the heavens. The Holy Spirit is to be our teacher and He alone can lead us to repentance. He is the One who will prepare us to be ready to meet the Lord when He returns. He makes the difference between the five foolish bridesmaids and the five wise bridesmaids (Matt. 25:1-12).

A key truth in this thought is – being thankful prepares you for the Holy Spirit to work in your life. Un thankfulness hinders His work. Also, in this sacrifice wafers of fine flour mingled with oil are used. On this point, I will let you seek out God’s hidden message in this sacrifice –

  1. How does flour become ‘fine’ flower?
  2. Why wafers and not loaves?

The answer can be found in this Psalm – “For His anger (testing) is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” – Psalm 30:5

Thanksgiving is a time for family and friendships. I pray that this Thanksgiving you will give thanks for God’s goodness to you. Remember, you don’t have to have a big turkey meal to give thanks – Paul and Silas were bound in prison, and they gave thanks and God opened the prison for them!

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains were loosed.” – Acts 16:25,26

thansgivingAnd last but certainly not least, Thanksgiving is a time for family. God speaks about marriage and the family in this way –

“But did He not make them one, Having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore, take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth. “For the LORD God of Israel says That He hates divorce, for it covers one’s garment with violence,” says the LORD of hosts. “Therefore, take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.” – Mal. 2:15-16

One of the last things God will do before the final Day of the Lord is to send the prophet Elijah and his message will be to re-unite the family.

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:5-6

In the beginning God created the family and He still cares about it. So, celebrate this Thanksgiving by gathering with family and friends to give thanks to God from whom all blessing come and enjoy one another’s fellowship.

Things About to Happen – part 2 update

Jesus warned of “birth pangs” that would announce His second coming.

“But when you hear of wars and commotions (riots and revaluations), do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” – Luke 21:9-11

Laying aside all the current political upheavals, wars and rumors of wars, I want to concentrate on the earthquakes, famines, and pestilences now occurring. Watch this revealing video by The Two Preachers which highlights just a few of these things now happening –

There is no doubt about the world-wide increase of major earthquakes as the USGS statistics show.

USGS Worldwide Deadly & Destructive Earthquakes

USGS graph of Major Earthquakes in the Past Century

And these earthquakes also result in tsunamis and flooding and other strange weather patterns. In fact there is an entire zone of earthquakes now active, it is called the Ring of Fire and it encloses the Pacific Ocean. The scientist Dutchsinse has gained renown predicting the next earthquake or related volcano to erupt around this Ring and he is predicting a New Large M7.5 Earthquake with possible Tsunami threat! 2nd this week! But, I think it is curious that it is called the Ring of Fire, as outbreaks of wildfires are breaking out around the globe. Again the Two Preachers have it on video –

The end times prophet Malachi speaks of this in his last chapter –

“For behold, the day is coming, Burning like an oven, And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch.” – Mal. 4:1

Unfortunately, judgments such as these often catch the righteous as well as the unrighteous unawares. It is why Jesus warned us to “watch and pray” and why the Apostle Paul warned the Thessalonians –

“But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.” – 1 Thes. 5:1-6

I believe these are the next birth pangs that Jesus predicted, and they are now coming closer together and with more intensity. It is time to seek the Lord like never before. Remember the last warning in the Bible –

“He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” – Rev. 22:11

In other words, ‘He who is righteous, be more righteous and he who is holy, be more holy’.

Update:

Fires have not abated. In the U.S. the National Interagency Fire Center reported –

“Currently 66 large fires and complexes have burned 438,364 acres. Six new large fires were reported, three in California and one each in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. More than 15,000 wildland fire personnel are assigned to incidents across the country. Six Type 1 incident management teams (IMTs) and 15 Type 2 IMTs are working on large fires in the Northwest, Southern California, Great Basin, and Northern California areas.”

This year’s statistics are from 1/1/22 to 9/07/22 there have been 49,193 fires that burned 6,311,144 Acres of land.

Israel365 News posted an article titled 2021 ON TRACK TO BECOME RECORD-BREAKING YEAR OF MAJOR EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANOES and in it they stated, “Volcano-EruptingIn the first 65 days of this year, 42 major quakes, magnitude 6 or higher, have shaken the planet.” which is a record. But earthquakes are not the only thing to increase – volcanoes as well are on the increase. Europe’s most active volcano, Mount Etna in Sicily, erupted seven times in the past two weeks. A large eruption started at Sangay volcano, Ecuador on Saturday. An earthquake swarm shook Mount Hood, a potentially active stratovolcano near Portland, Oregon for 45 minutes last week, raising concerns that the volcano was beginning to awake. Mount Sinabung in Indonesia’s North Sumatra province began erupting last Tuesday, sending volcanic materials as high as 16,400 feet into the sky with authorities recording 13 times when it released ash clouds. Three weeks ago, Fuego volcano, located 50 kilometers away from the capital city of Guatemala, started to erupt. As of yesterday, 43 volcanoes around were erupting or showing signs of activity.

Earthquakes and volcanoes are well known to be harbingers of God’s wrath on the nations and Rabbis teach that earthquakes and volcanoes are being referred to by Ezekiel and Jeremiah.

“and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.” – Ezek. 38:20

“But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble, And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.” – Jer. 10:10

Earthquakes and volcanoes are clear signs of the approaching end days. Why is God so upset with us? You might ask. The prophet Ezekiel has the answer.

“But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die.” – Ezek. 18:24

Our nation has done good in the past and we have been righteous before the LORD, but we have turned away from that. In what way you might ask?

“Therefore, I also gave them up to statutes that were not good, and judgments by which they could not live; and I pronounced them unclean because of their ritual gifts, in that they caused all their firstborn to pass through the fire, that I might make them desolate and that they might know that I am the LORD.”’ – Ezek. 20:25-26

In other words, when a nation turns to abortion, which is a ritual in Baal worship, we were pronounced ‘unclean’ by God as a nation. Charisma News wrote this article on the subject –

altar of Baal“The reproductions of the 50-foot arch that stood at the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria, that will be erected in New York City and London next month will only be the first of many. As you will see below, it turns out that there are plans to put arches in hundreds more cities all over the globe. The organization behind this is the Institute of Digital Archaeology, which is a joint venture between Harvard University, the University of Oxford and Dubai’s Museum of the Future. The initial arches from the Temple of Baal that will be erected in New York and London as part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Week in April are intended “as a gesture of defiance“, but ultimately the plan is to share this “cultural treasure” with as many cities around the planet as possible.”

One of the chief acts done at the altar of Baal was child sacrifice, which is what abortion is – child sacrifice for the convenience of the parent! So, one might ask, “How is this a cultural treasure?” 

Wake up America before it is too late!

My next article will update Things About to Happen – part 3.

Christ’s Freedom must be All Inclusive

The Apostle Paul wrote “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” (Gal. 5:1).

There is no doubt that the yoke Paul was referring to was that of sin but, it also included much more. It also included freedom from manmade religious doctrines that are contrary to the word of God. It also includes governmental doctrines and actions that are contrary to the will of God. Our Founding Fathers understood it to mean governmental actions that impeded on this God given liberty as well. President James Monroe wrote “I will now add what I do not like. First, the omission of a bill of rights, providing clearly, and without the aid of sophism, for freedom of religion, freedom of the press, protection against standing armies, restriction of monopolies, the eternal and unremitting force of the habeas corpus laws, and trials by jury, in all matters of fact triable by the law of the land, and not by the laws of nations.” He also echoed President Thomas Jefferson in his stand against our nation maintaining a standing army.

james monroe on standing armies

Nations can gather armies in the event of war but that is not the same as maintaining a standing army. And yet that is what we see happening in the United States right now. An article in Epoch Times August 23, 2022, titled America’s Standing Army has this quote –

“The IRS has stockpiled 4,500 guns and 5 million rounds of ammunition in recent years, including 621 shotguns, 539 long-barrel rifles, and 15 submachine guns, according to the in-depth report “The Militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies.

The article goes on to list all the governmental agencies that have stockpiled weapons and ammunition and concludes with –

“Mind you, this de facto standing army of bureaucratic, administrative, nonmilitary, paper-pushing, nontraditional law enforcement agencies may look and act like the military, but they aren’t the military.

Rather, they’re foot soldiers of the police state’s standing army, and they’re growing in number at an alarming rate.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the number of federal agents armed with guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment, authorized to make arrests, and trained in military tactics has nearly tripled over the past several decades.

There are now more bureaucratic (nonmilitary) government agents armed with weapons than there are U.S. Marines. As Forbes reports, “The federal government has become one never-ending gun show.”

This nonmilitary army is being used to stifle freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution and it is partnering with social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to put a clamp on free speech and dissent.

Paul asked the Galatians, “Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” American Christians are in danger of swallowing the little leaven that leavens the whole lump as they sit by and watch the Biden Administration hire 87,000 more IRS agents armed with weapons. American pastors, who are commissioned by God to be His spokesmen for the truth, should be sharing this truth posted by the Epoch Times article –

polie in riot gear“While Americans have to jump through an increasing number of hoops in order to own a gun, federal agencies have been placing orders for hundreds of millions of rounds of hollow-point bullets and military gear. Among the agencies being supplied with night vision equipment, body armor, hollow point bullets, shotguns, drones, assault rifles, and liquid propane gas cannons are the Smithsonian, U.S. Mint, HHS, IRS, Food and Drug Administration, Small Business Administration, SSA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Education Department, Energy Department, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and an assortment of public universities.

Add in the Biden administration’s plans to grow the nation’s police forces by 100,000 more cops and to swell the ranks of the IRS by 87,000 new employees (some of whom will have arrest and firearm authority), and you’ve got a nation in the throes of martial law.”

Why do these agencies need all this military equipment unless it is to force unconstitutional edicts upon us? Surely lawlessness has not become so bad as to warrant these extreme governmental reactions. America has enjoyed the freedom given to us by God in response to the prayers and confessions of God-fearing Pilgrims, Puritans, and founders. They fought to maintain these freedoms for us, and we must also join the fight to preserve the freedoms given to us.

The ultimate source of our freedom is Jesus Christ and the Word of God. But we must embrace them and live them out and that means in our hearts, our fellowships, our society, and our government. The freedom of Christ must be all inclusive.

War in the Heavens, coming to Earth!

web pictures 146We are witnessing war in the heavens right now. Scripture says the nations and the kings of the earth (great leaders) plot and take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed saying Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords (that bind) from us”. From the time God said, “Let us make man in Our image”, Satan has been at war with mankind because he is at war with God. As we approach the end of time, Satan is moving with great vengeance against any in mankind that honor and cling to God. The last great nation on his list is the United States. It was founded in prayer and by those seeking God on earth, the Pilgrims and the Puritans. And through its history, although there have been ups and downs, it has stood for God and His Biblical principles. When Elijah complained to God that he was the last prophet remaining alive, God replied, “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”  so there have always been a remnant in America that remained true to God. Their confession has echoed that of King David –

“The LORD is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works. The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. The LORD preserves all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy.” – Psalm 145:17-20

the purgeIt would be good for all of us to listen to these words more closely: ‘The LORD is near to all . . . who call upon Him in truth.’ Paul wrote that the coming of the Lawless one would be with “lying wonders” and we are certainly witnessing the work of the lawless one among us. Everything the current Whitehouse utters to the public is a lie. There is no truth in most government organizations such as the FBI and the DOJ, whose leadership is filled with wicked people. Most of our colleges have given way to the lies of the LGBTQIA+ crowd and now even the public education schools are teaching the lies of CRT (Critical Race Theory). And there is certainly no truth in most of our so-called news media which has become nothing more than a propaganda machine for the ‘lawless one’. Social media has been taken over by those espousing doctrines of the ‘lawless one’.

One-World-Religion-ChrislamBut what is far worse is the succumbing of the American Church to these same lies. The Church was intended to proclaim God’s truth to the nations but all too often today’s churches are proclaiming a message crafted to attract people of the world and leave them in the condition in which they were found! Many churches today propagate the false teaching of evolution, or they put up with it by their silence. Many have embraced the homosexual lifestyle, and some have even appointed homosexual preachers and bishops to stand in the pulpit. Many have appointed women to be pastors when the word of God strictly forbids it. I recently listened to a Black Pastor from New York who was expelled from the American Baptist Church for saying the Barrack Obama was not a black man (because he has a white mother) and for saying that the homosexual lifestyle is unbiblical! Some churches are even proclaiming Jesus is not the only way to God! It is called the doctrine of Chrislam. Muslims and Jews are said to have their own way to God.

The last book of the Old Testament which speaks about the end times, explains what the priesthood (pastors) should be modeled after and that is Levi of the Old Testament. God says of Levi that “he feared Me and was reverent before My name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips.” The law of truth was in his mouth means he didn’t speak lies and he proclaimed God’s truth to his people and to the nation. He wasn’t after pleasing the people, white washing their sins but he proclaimed God’s truth! God says a pastor is “the messenger of the LORD of hosts!” He is not a hireling of the people, or his denominational headquarters! And injustice was not found on his lips means that a pastor is to speak against every injustice he sees and do it from the pulpit. That means every pastor in today’s churches ought to be speaking against the Democrat Party for their stand on abortion, Critical Race Theory, LGBTQIA+ lifestyle, and many in the Republican Party as well!

The Psalmist also wrote that God would fulfill the desire of those who fear Him. The fear of the Lord is not a subject talked about much in the modern church but, the Leader of our faith had much to say about it.

“And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!” – Luke 12:4-5

The Apostle’s Doctrine, in which all the early church was instructed also says much about the fear of the Lord. Peter wrote –

“And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” – 1 Peter 1:17-19

Jesus warned us about hell and Peter warns us that we will all face judgement and our works will be examined! This knowledge should cause all of us the join King David in praying –

“Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, for in You do I trust. Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You. . .. Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God, Your Spirit if good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.” – Psalm 143:8-10

This is the fear of the Lord. As God spoke to Elijah, I pray there will be a remnant in the United States that will rise up and take their position in the Army of God because the war is already upon us. Will you go down to the waters of Gideon and be part of the 300 of the Lord?

The Elementary Principles

parable-of-the-sower 2Jesus sat down to teach the multitude by the Sea of Galilee, and He taught them in parables –

“Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred. And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” – Mark 4:3-9

Jesus later told His disciples that the seed was the word of God but there are several lessons for us to learn from this teaching. First, we must be actively spreading the word of God everywhere. Second, God desires fruit from His word, some more, some less, but all must bear fruit. Third, we don’t know what kind of ground we are sowing on, only the Holy Spirit knows. Our job is to spread the seed. Some are so enticed by the devil that they can’t hear the word, some don’t count the word precious enough to last through trouble or persecution, some are so taken up with the cares of this world that the word is choked out, but some will hear the word and treasure it and endure to keep it.

This parable was directly tied into the Great Commission Jesus gave to the church –

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” – Matt. 28:18-20

They were to spread the word unto all the nations. Those that responded were to be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Then they were to teach them all things that Jesus had taught. This became known as the “apostle’s doctrine” (Acts 2:42). What does it mean to baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit?

Baptism in the father’s name is His choosing you for a new life. As when he took the Israelites out of the slavery of Egypt into the freedom of a new life. It is the ‘born again’ experience.

“Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;” – 1 Cor. 10:1-2

Baptism in the name of the Son is embracing His death on the cross and being resurrected with Him into newness of life. And if we died with Him then we should no longer sin because the flesh is dead!

“Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?” – Rom. 6:3

Baptism in the Holy Spirit is when the Holy Spirit comes upon one with power to do the things Jesus did and the evidence is speaking in other tongues.

“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” – Acts 2:4

There are to be no ‘dead wood’ in the church. All are to be actively involved in the ministry. All are brought into new life, all are to embrace death to their flesh by taking up the cross and following Jesus, and all are to receive the Holy Spirit in power. All are to be active in spreading the word.

Jesus’ complaint against the first church in Revelation 2 (Rev. 2:4) was that they had left their first love. They had many good works, but they had stopped spreading the word. They stopped evangelizing! Good works can never replace evangelistic zeal!

To the church of Smyrna Jesus addressed the seed that fell on stony ground that had no root in itself. He encouraged them, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Rev. 2:10). He warned them that they would suffer and have tribulations but encouraged them to have faith to endure. The Christian life is not all peaches and cream. Jesus suffered and we are called to follow Him. The Apostle Peter wrote –

“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.” – 1Pet. 1:6-9

‘After you have been grieved by various trials and tested by fire’ are not popular teaching in the church today, but they are part of the ‘apostles’ doctrine’ that the first church grew on. In fact, there is little said in the modern church about grieving or being tested by fiery trials.

“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” – Acts 2:42

But in the early church the apostles taught about the possibility of suffering for their faith, and they had a fellowship that prayed and ministered to one another to help. They prayed for healing, for deliverance, and for testing. And they ‘broke bread’ together. That means they shared some meals, and they took communion together, I think every time they met. They came together like a big family. They were not like spectators sitting in the audience being entertained. And they taught one another the ‘elementary principles of Christ’ that are recorded in Hebrews chapter six.

“Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation:

    1. repentance from dead works,
    2. faith toward God,
    3. the doctrine of water baptism,
    4. the doctrine of baptism with the Holy Spirit,
    5. the laying on of hands,
    6. the resurrection of the dead,
    7. and of eternal judgement

These were just the elementary teachings; there were many more going on to perfection. Needless to say, they were not just part time Christians, attending church one day a week. They were the church, and they were full-time Christians!

The popular teacher Jonathan Cahn says that as we near the end of the age, everything is going back to how it was in the beginning of the church age, and I believe it. That means society is going back to its godless condition, but it also means the church will be going back to its vibrant condition that we see in the Book of Acts. When Jesus returns, He will not find big crowds to welcome Him. He said, “many are called, but few are chosen” and “When He comes will He find faith on the earth.” He also said, “wide is the gate that leads to destruction and narrow is the gate that leads to salvation.”

The modern church needs to return to its foundations, and they need to be filled with the fear of the Lord. Though we are saved by grace it is up to us to continue in that grace. As the Apostle Paul wrote to the Philippians –

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;” – Phil. 2:12

Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, and Peter said the same thing –

“And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” – 1 Pet. 1:17-19

This is the Apostle’s Doctrine.

Vote for Truth

American Declaration of Independence with quill and parchment.

American Declaration of Independence with quill and parchment.

In November of 2022 a national midterm election will be held in which every American should vote. But that does not include those visitors here who are not American (i.e., illegals), nor does it include those Americans who have died before that date, nor does it include those who fraudulently vote more than once! I say this because the last general election included all of the above mentioned. In the state of CA, no identification was required of those who voted, all with a driver’s license were qualified and illegals are given CA drivers licenses when they arrive! Since CA does not appear to have changed that practice, I think the CA vote should be rejected in mass from any national election! If other states do not change their former proven ‘ballet harvesting’ schemes, their national votes should also be negated! A national vote should be based upon the concept of ‘one vote per one American’ and it should be given at designated voting polls that are sufficiently manned by qualified persons. Those who are too sick or are immobile because of sickness should have their votes given by sworn affidavit. Voting is an act of immense importance and should be treated that way. Any who are proven to negate this process should face immediate jail time as they are guilty of a treasonous act!

I say this because of what Jesus said. He said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32). Now Americans love freedom, and our Constitution was written to guarantee freedom so, truth in our elections is therefore paramount to that freedom. We are now living in a culture where truth is daily mocked and negated. Our governmental institutions have redefined the meaning of the word – freedom, to mean ‘whatever is good for us’. The Joe Biden Administration has declared war on American energy, severely weakened energy production, and bringing on heavy inflation. The FBI, once an organization that fought to protect that freedom is now one of the most untruthful organizations in government! A recent article in Epoch Times written by Victor Hanson details the FBI’s decent into untruthfulness, and it is shocking! And the nation’s health tzar, the CDC, has now been proven to be in the hip pocket of big pharma and the global elites in fostering a false pandemic on our country with illegal shutdowns and forced vaccine shots that they knew were unproven, as detailed in the Epoch Times article A Deeper Dive Into the CDC Reversal.

Minneapolis Rioters WinAt the same time, we are being undermined with educational lies that promote Critical Race Theory and BLM, which is designed to undermine American history and bring division that will and is weakening us as a nation. While the truth is – no nation is perfect because they are all made up of mankind which is fallen due to sin but, the United States is one of the most perfect nations that has ever existed. From our beginning we gave freedom to those seeking freedom to worship as they saw fit. We opposed slavery and fought a bloody civil war to secure it. This nation gave the opportunity to every man to rise above his beginning status both socially and economically. It provides unprecedent levels of education for all its citizens. And we have been one of the most generous nations in our help to other nations and downtrodden people, both in monetary giftings and missionary ministry. We have become a beacon of freedom to all the world.

Drag_queen_story_timeOur government and its schools are now openly promoting homosexualism, which is one of the most harmful and untruthful lifestyles known to man. It degrades man’s intended purpose from what he was created to do, and no society can long exist on homosexual influence because they cannot procreate! They are now pushing the lie that there are more than two genders, male and female, even though nature itself denies this falsehood. All these ideologies are designed to tear down a society, not bring truth or enlightenment as they proclaim. Any society that embraces such lies is committing suicide!

We have now reached the stage the Apostle Paul wrote about –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

Paul warned what would happen to those who did not receive a love of the truth and it is not pleasant! As I see it, America has one chance to right itself in this upcoming election. We need to remove political power from those who have promoted such harmful policies and that means vote out Democrats and Rino Republicans from office and install those who believe in our Constitution and will uphold it and those who have a genuine belief in God and Christian principles! This is important enough for you to take the time to find out who is running for election and where they stand on the issue of truth! We cannot remove the current President in this election but, we can vote in those who will stand against his policies enough to hamstring him until the next presidential election in 2024.

I ask you to not go to the polls as a Democrat or a Republican but as an American and vote for truth.

The Days of Trouble

2020 disastersMany today see these as the days of trouble and indeed there is trouble throughout the world and in America as well. Some, who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture are looking for the soon return of Jesus on the clouds of glory to take them out. But it would be good to once again review what Jesus actually said about the end days.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” – Matt. 24:29-31

Notice, He said ‘after the tribulation of those days’, in other words we will be here to see those tribulation days. Not until the sun is darkened and the moon fails to give her light will we see Him returning on the clouds with His angels. Next Jesus told the parable of the good and evil servants. The evil servant did not prepare for his masters coming but the good servant took care of the people giving them food and serving his master. In other words, we are to be faithful doing the master’s work right up until He comes, regardless of the kind of day that is going on. Jesus said the Word of God was bread and food.

Jesus’ message is “Occupy until I come!” Remember how the Church began, it was not in peaceful times but in times of trouble! The government worked against the Church. The religious community worked against the Church. Nothing the government did followed Biblical teaching and the culture of the day was also opposed to Scriptural truth. Is that any different today? Who took the Ten Commandments down from public display? Who outlawed prayer to God from the schools? Who eliminated the Pledge of Allegiance from the schools? The government! Our culture: Hollywood, the news media, and education, are not promoting Biblical teaching today. In fact, their CRT doctrines, their homosexual agenda, as well shadrach,meshack,abednego as their transgenderism, are directly opposed to Biblical view! So, what are we, the followers of God to do about it? Are we to allow our churches to be locked down, wear masks to hide our faces and cover our mouths, or are we to be like the three Hebrew children of Daniel 3 who defied King Nebuchadnezzar?   The King said –

“Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?” – Dan. 3:15

But they answered the King –

“O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” – Dan. 3:16-18

Shadrack, Meshack, and Abed-nego did not yield to the fear, they did not bow down to the gods of this world and were willing to yield their bodies to God Almighty. They did not yield to the horns and flutes of the media of their day, and they did not listen to their proclamations to a false idol (Dr. Fausi and the NIH).

As Isaiah prophesied, “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.” – Isa. 60:2. Darkness is upon the land and the people are in gross darkness, but it is not a time to hide! Rather it is a time to “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.” Go out into the fields for the harvest is ripe and the Holy Spirit is falling on those who obey.

Is the Restrainer being Removed?

In 2010 I wrote the Book, The Call, and in chapter 12, I asked the question “Is the restrainer being removed?” Following is that chapter, after which I will update it.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

daniel's visions

Daniel interpreted a dream that God gave to King Nebuchadnezzar in which the Gentile kingdoms that were to come were revealed. It is clear that God has ordained these various kingdoms and empires that will come forth in history. While Satan tries to use these empires for his own purpose, God always uses them to achieve His own pre-ordained goals. He can even change a king’s heart to do this as He did with Nebuchadnezzar and Cyrus.

Toward the close of these Gentile kingdoms, they will change from world-wide empires such as Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome into smaller kingdoms greatly influenced by socialism and democracy, as represented by the feet and toes made of iron and clay in Nebuchadnezzar’s image. As Nebuchadnezzar watched “a stone was cut out without hands” and this stone struck the feet of iron and clay and smashed the whole statue. These kingdoms and nations will be the setting for God’s final acts in man’s history which will bring back the nation of Israel and will finally result in the ‘everlasting kingdom which will never be destroyed or left to other people’ Daniel 2:44. At that time, the ‘times of the Gentiles’ will be fulfilled as Jesus taught in Luke 21:24.

God has used these kingdoms and nations to fulfill His purposes and one of His purposes is to honor the covenant He made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Throughout history the devil has wanted to destroy Israel, but God has always had a kingdom or nation to thwart him. Sometimes, they were used without their realizing what was happening. I believe God will have a kingdom or nation, influenced by His truth, which He will use to restrain Satan and thus aid Israel in ushering in His everlasting kingdom. Whenever Satan is gaining too much power and control God raises a nation to challenge him. WWII is an example; when Hitler and his Axis tried to rule the world and destroy the Jewish people, God raised up the Allies to defeat them and their plans. For the last 50 years the United States has been this ‘restrainer’ against the forces of lawlessness of communism and Islam. But the time will come and may be soon here, when this ‘restrainer’ will be removed to allow the ‘mystery of lawlessness’ one last chance to defeat God and His Anointed One.

And now you know what is restraining, that he (the antichrist) may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. – 2nd Thessalonians 2:6, 7 (emphasis mine)

At this point in history God has been using the United States to restrain the work of Satan to destroy the Jews. But the time will come and may be soon here, when this ‘restrainer’ will be removed to allow the ‘mystery of lawlessness’ one last chance to defeat God and His Anointed One.

If I am correct in my opinion, what conditions will result in the removal of this ‘restrainer’? Paul gives us the answer as he details the actions that will cause this nation or people to fall:

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, for this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,  wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. – Romans 1:20-32

The conditions that cause a nation or people to fall are.

  • God, the Creator, is denied – the rise of the doctrine of evolution,
  • They stopped being thankful and begin attributing their blessings to their own ability and wisdom – schools that were founded to honor God will turn and deny Him, and
  • They lose the fear of God and there is nothing to restrain their wickedness.

We can see the evidence of all these conditions growing in America today.

  1. The decline of Christian morals – the main influence of the Christian moral is not the number of church goers, but the number of functioning, stable families. As Mathew Henry wrote, “If you don’t have Church at home, you will not have it in your fellowship.” God described Himself as a Father and He instituted marriage for the purpose of begetting “godly offspring” (Malachi 2:15). In America today the “percentage of married households with children has plummeted from 44.3 percent to 20.2 percent since 1960” Over 50% of America’s children today live in single parent or foster families. This is exactly why God says He “hates divorce” (Malachi 2:16), it destroys families and ultimately society. The very first obligation of families is to honor God and second is to train up your children to honor God. All other functions of society are dependent upon these two. When these two fail, the others will soon follow.
  2. The rise in violence – while there has always been some violence it has now escalated to a level uncontrollable by law enforcement. Chicago is being swept with violent uprisings even as I write this article. This was documented in an article titled, Third World America 2011: Forget “Fast Tracking to Anarchy” We’ve Arrived. Of course, most liberal commentators attribute this rise in violence to lack of welfare relief programs. They never seem to get the true reason for the lawlessness – rebellion against God. We kill the most innocent among us (approx. 56 million aborted babies) and then wonder why a spirit of murder has been released upon us as a nation. I live in a small village of 1000 population – this would amount to killing 56,000 such villages! Our news media reports the number of deaths our soldiers suffer in places like Iraq and Afghanistan with alarm, and it is tragic, but there are more murders committed every year in the United States and they do not seem alarmed about them! Our 2nd President, John Adams stated. “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion (and at that time, ‘religion’ meant Christianity). Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”
  3. The rise in crime – not only is crime on the increase, but a new type of crime has also now emerged, “Mob robberies”. One very disturbing trend that is on the increase is the number of “flash mob robberies” that we are seeing around the United States. Large groups of youths are storming into retail establishments, looting whatever they want, and storming right back out.  They co-ordinate their robberies on Twitter and Facebook, meet at the selected location and go to looting! The reference footnoted here are examples that are happening nation-wide. The video reference shows what is becoming known as “Flash Mob Robberies”. These actions have recently started becoming violent, in one episode over 100 were shot and 17 died. They gang the streets, stop cars, pulling people out and beating them, for no apparent reason. In some cases, gang cars drive down a busy street and start shooting at pedestrians.
  4. The collapse in the economy – all the major economic indicators 1) housing market, 2) job growth, and 3) unemployment are now at or below those seen during the Great Depression of the late 1920’s. If we calculated unemployment and inflation the same way that we did back during the Carter administration, then the Misery Index today would actually be higher than at any point during the presidency of Jimmy Carter. Misery Index = rate of inflation + Unemployment rateThe present Democrat government has changed the way they calculate inflation and unemployment, leaving out large segments of data to make the figures look better. A recent article named 50 things every American should know about the collapse of the economy highlights this fact in great detail. The liberal news media is trying desperately to shore up the Obama presidency with rosy lopsided reports but, no one believes them, especially when 44 million Americans are on food stamps! 59% of all Americans now receive money from the federal government in one form or another and the tension between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ is about to boil over.
  5. Political correctness amuck – has led us to accept lesbians and homosexual lifestyles as normal. Homosexuals have blackmailed major corporations into giving them large donations rather than be labeled “Homophobic”. Now the public school system is training our children to believe it is an acceptable and normal lifestyle. Fox, Disney, and Google have endorsed a multi-million-dollar campaign supporting the homosexual lifestyle that targets children as young as 10 years old. God absolutely condemns this lifestyle and those who support it, as Saint Paul wrote in Romans 1:26, 27, and 32. We are told that the higher number of blacks in prison is proof of racism but why isn’t it just proof that more blacks commit crimes? Today it seems one cannot disagree with President Obama’s policies without being called racist because he happens to be black. We cannot profile Muslims for terrorism even though the overwhelming majority of terrorism is committed by Muslims! We give special preference to minorities in school placement tests even though other students who happen not to be a minority score higher on their entrance tests. This is not only unfair to those who worked hard to get the higher test scores but also to the minorities who are assumed to not be as smart because of their race. Political Correctness is exactly what Paul was describing when he stated that “God gave them over to a debased mind to do those things which are not fitting”.
  6. When the Church fails to be the ‘salt’ and ‘light’ it was meant to be, there is nothing to stop the downward spiral into a total collapse of the society. Only the true Church has the power to withstand the evil deception of Satan. But, if the Church ceases being the standard of moral truth in a nation, that nation is doomed. The American church is in danger of having its lampstand removed as Jesus warned the churches of Revelation 2 and 3. Sadly, the American church has lost its moral authority on marriage and divorce and now is on an equal footing with the world outside the church. It now accepts the homosexual lifestyle and even ordains them as ministers. 60% of evangelical Christians voted for Obama in 2008 even though he actively promoted abortion. They foolishly thought they could separate political life from moral life. Now there is a movement to recognize “many ways” to salvation, even though Jesus said He was the only way to the Father. Some evangelical ministers are preaching that Jews have their own way to salvation, apart from Jesus.  Others are promoting “Chrislam” saying Islam is equal to Christianity in finding God. In June of 2011, 77 churches in 33 states celebrated Chrislam in their Sunday Services.

chrislam-in-america
This is exactly what Malachi was rebuking in the priests of his day:

Judah has dealt treacherously, and an abomination has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem, For Judah has profaned The LORD’s holy institution which He loves: He has married the daughter of a foreign god. – Malachi 2:11

God loves His ‘holy institution’, the Church, and He views joining it with the false god of Islam as an abomination. Malachi prays that the ones who do this will be cut off from the tents of Jacob, in other words be ejected from the true Church!

These conditions indicate that the United States is about to collapse. Its leaders are trusting in their own abilities and wisdom instead of trusting in God; indeed, they have rejected God and His Son, Jesus Christ as our only hope. It is only God’s grace that has preserved us this long, but our leaders refuse to recognize this truth. God has been restoring the nation of Israel and they have now come home but, they have been trusting in the United States like they used to trust in Egypt in Old Testament times. Now God will show them that they can rely only on Him as He allows the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 wars to break upon them. The time has almost arrived for the ‘restrainer’ to be removed allowing Satan to do his worse and to prove to Israel that their only hope is God Himself.

This scenario does not bode well for the United States. If there is not a major, wide-sweeping repentance in the American Church, there is nothing left but the judgment of God on this nation.

Here ends Chapter 12.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

TODAY

While this analysis was written while President Obama was in office and we had a brief respite under President Trump, the spirit of Lawlessness was not cleansed from this nation. Democrats and many Republicans still hung on to the immoral and rebellious ideas listed above. Just as it was after 9/11, there has been no genuine repentance of the nation. Now another administration has arisen, and its directives are even more socialistic and disastrous than under Obama. The moral decay has only increased and now is threatening even our children in their schools. The Nazi-like media does not know the definition of the word Truth and has become just a propaganda machine for the spirit of Antichrist.

A small remnant of Christians have repented and turned to the Lord but, they are battling against the full forces of hell; politically, socially, news media wise, and even church-wise. We need help from on high to overcome and return this nation to its foundations in the Lord. Let us all pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, a ‘latter rain’ if you will as the prophet Zechariah called for –

“Ask the LORD for rain in the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.” – Zech. 10:1

American Christians have not yet awakened to the seriousness of this hour for the United States. When the American government can illegally use the Department of Justice and the FBI to invade a former President’s residence, as they recently did to President Trump, they are sending a message – “threaten the present liberal government at your peril!” Trump may not have been the ‘politically correct Christian’ many Christians wanted, but he was God’s man for the hour. He was the last man standing between you and tyranny! And the Globalist elite in Washington and the UN cannot allow Trump to run again in 2024 – they know he would win and destroy their plans to bring down America.

I don’t know if Trump will run again in 2024, but I do know that several heavenly signs, the sign of Tarus and the Great American Eclipse, do predict major upheavals in 2024! So, wake up Church and pray.

A Day for Preparation

Volcano-EruptingJesus warned, “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences, and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” – Luke 21:11.

He then warned, “But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons.” These things are already happening worldwide! Jesus also said, “In your patience (steadfastness, constancy, endurance) possess your souls.” This is not a time to draw back but to draw nearer to Jesus than ever before. The time of His appearing is drawing near.
World-wide persecution against Christians has been happening and it is beginning to happen in the United States as well. As believers in Christ Jesus, we need to have a Scriptural preparation for this. While Scripture gives us many models, I want to present the three Hebrew young men of Daniel 3; Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednego as examples. They were faced with a choice: follow the world and its standards or follow God and His standards. They chose God.

shadrach,meshack,abednego “… our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” – Daniel 3:17-18

You might think that we in America are not in their dire situation but, you would be wrong. This year we were faced with an edict from the king (Joe Biden and his health czars) to take the Covid vaccine shot or else! Many lost their jobs over it but many knuckled under and took it, in spite of the warnings against it. Families were broken apart over taking or not taking the vaccine just as Jesus predicted –

“You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake.” – Luke 21:16-17

And churches were shut down. Now, the nation of Britain is coming forth with the warnings that many were giving earlier

“The UK government admits that vaccines have damaged the natural immune system of those who have been double-vaccinated. The UK government has admitted that once you have been double-vaccinated, you will never again be able to acquire full natural immunity to Covid variants – or possibly any other virus. So, let’s watch the “real” pandemic begin now! In its Week 42 “COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report”, the UK Department of Health admits on page 23 that “N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who become infected after two doses of vaccination”. It goes on to say that this drop in antibodies is essentially permanent. What does this mean? We know that vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission of the virus (indeed, the report elsewhere shows that vaccinated adults are now much more likely to be infected than unvaccinated ones). The British now find that the vaccine interferes with the body’s ability to make antibodies after infection not only against the spike protein but also against other parts of the virus. In particular, vaccinated people do not appear to form antibodies against the nucleocapsid protein, the envelope of the virus, which is a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people. In the long term, the vaccinated are far more susceptible to any mutations in the spike protein, even if they have already been infected and cured once or more. The unvaccinated, on the other hand, will gain lasting, if not permanent, immunity to all strains of the alleged virus after being naturally infected with it even once.
 
The first insurance companies are backing down because a huge wave of claims is coming their way. Anthony Fauci confirms that the PCR test cannot detect live viruses. Anthony Fauci confirms that neither the antigen test nor the PCR test can tell us whether someone is contagious or not!!! This invalidates all the foundations of the so-called pandemic. The PCR test was the only indication of a pandemic. Without PCR-TEST no pandemic for all the press workers, doctors, lawyers, prosecutors etc. THIS is the final key, the ultimate proof that the measures must all be lifted immediately” PLEASE SHARE 

 

So much for the pestilences, and as for the earthquakes, the USGS reports there were 52,008 earthquakes in the past 365 days and 3,744 earthquakes in the past 30 days.

SWITZERLAND-ECONOMY-DIPLOMACY-BANKING

But the worst news is yet to come! We are now faced with a global food shortage as well as in the United States. The UN and the World Economic Forum have joined forces to limit food production worldwide and to do away with privately owned land. Dylan Eleven writes in UN, World Economic Forum Behind Global ‘War on Farmers, “The escalating regulatory attack on agricultural producers from Holland and the United States to Sri Lanka and beyond is closely tied to the United Nations’ “Agenda 2030” Sustainable Development Goals and the U.N.’s partners at the World Economic Forum (WEF), numerous experts told The Epoch Times.” He said, “High-level Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members within the U.N. system helped create the SDGs and are currently helping lead the organization’s implementation of the global plan, The Epoch Times has previously documented. One of the goals in the UN’s Sustainable Goals is found in the Vancouver Declaration and states, “one of the earliest meetings defining the “sustainability” agenda was the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements known as Habitat I and stated that “land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by individuals” and that private land ownership is “a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable,” the U.N. declaration said, a prelude to the World Economic Forum’s now infamous “prediction” that by 2030, “you’ll own nothing.” 

farmers-protests-in-the-NetherlandsThe Biden Administration’s war on fossil fuel and fertilizer is designed to shut down farmers which use an enormous amount of diesel fuel as well as fertilizers as well as electrical production which also relies on fossil fuels.

As Holland applies the UN’s guidelines to take away private farmland, Dutch farmers are rebelling. The problem began when the Dutch government used its Nitrogen Policy (alleged excessive nitrogen emissions) to acquire land from farmers by sale or theft. They want to use the land to quickly reduce the number of livestock by 25%. The plan is also to use the land for sustainable forms of agriculture. It’s a land grab to control the supply of the food the government approves of supplying. Prime Minister Rutte is a New World Order – Liberal World Order – stooge. He is allied with Justin Trudeau and the entire WEF. This move by the UN and the WEF will not only lead to a One World Government but, it will also lead to the great famine that Jesus predicted. 

In the United States we have an election coming in November and primaries this month. It will be imperative that the Democrats are put out of power and true conservatives are elected. That means the ousting of Rino Republicans as well. As James wrote, ‘Don’t be just a hearer but, be a doer’, find out who to vote for and get out and vote. 

Remember the heavenly signs God gave to us in 2017 which led to 2024, only a few years away and were presented in Signs that Point to the End. It is time to get serious and prepare.

 

 

 

 

 

Standing for Truth – reposted

I posted this article in July of this year but, it needs to be said again. The so-called ‘Green Lobby’ in our current government is nothing but a Chinese Communist front being used to bring the United States down. From Fox News. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a major U.S. green group that has influenced Biden administration policymaking, has deep ties to the Chinese government. If Fox News can report on this, why haven’t I heard this truth being proclaimed from American Pulpits? The prophet Malachi has a message from God to these false pastors –

“If you will not hear, and if you will not take it to heart, to give glory to My name,” Says the LORD of hosts, “I will send a curse upon you, And I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not take it to heart. Behold, I will rebuke your descendants and spread refuse on your faces, The refuse of your solemn feasts; And one will take you away with it. Then you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, That My covenant with Levi may continue,” says the LORD of hosts.

“My covenant was with him, one of life and peace, And I gave them to him that he might fear Me; So, he feared Me And was reverent before My name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity and turned many away from iniquity. For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.” – Mal. 2:2-7

In other words, a pastor does not belong to his denomination, his synod, or even his congregation. He belongs to God, and he is to be God’s messenger to speak against injustice and the speak for truth! And the Gospel involves a lot more than just a John 3:16 message. Jesus also said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life”. That ‘truth’ involves everything that influences our lives.

With that being said, I want to repost the following article.

Standing for Truth July 18, 2022

George Washington prayingThere is an old saying, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!” Well, the going is getting tough; tough economically, politically, and spiritually. The Covid19 virus and the resulting lockdowns on small businesses have resulted in much loss of income and many permanent closes, but the bills don’t stop!

Politically, the corruption of fraud is rising to the top, so to speak. It is reaching the point where the average citizen is now aware of it. It has infected the Democrat Party, government watchdog agencies such as the FBI and the DOJ and many in the Republican Party as well. The Courts have also been affected by the corruption as well. As an Epoch Times article recently stated, “Beijing manipulated Wall Street to steer US policy.” A Chinese professor recently said, “We have our old friends in the United States’ core circle of power.” (Epoch Times, December 9-15, 2020)

Barna_NewSundayPart2_WebCharts_v5But, perhaps most serious is the corruption in the Christian Church. Jesus said, “Take up your cross and follow Me” but many Christians run and hide at the hint of Covid19. The American Christian Church is loosing membership; 12% in the past 10 years. And those who still call themselves Christian, many have stopped attending church. According to George Barna about 1/3 of Christians have stopped attending Church, even on line. Many churches closed their doors just to receive some Covid19 stimulus money and others out of genuine fear for their parishioners. But, they forgot the word of God –

“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” – Heb. 10:24, 25

But, most of all, they forgot the importance of TRUTH! Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6). They blindly took the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the National Institute for Health (NIH) recommendations without asking if they were true or not. Now we find out that not only were they suspect but they were heavily influenced by China! They forced masks on us, even though they now admit masks are ineffective and they forced social distancing on us but, only on certain people (Walmart and other big corporations can remain open). Isaiah prophesied these days would come and have come before –

“Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So truth fails, And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor” – Isa. 59:14 -16

Doctors and Scientists who dared to disagree or question WHO or CDC were quickly shut down and became a prey to the media, who slandered them and threatened their jobs. Certain drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin, that have proven to be effective were quarantined by the CDC and NIH and pharmacies were forbidden to sell them, making it clear the issue was control – not healing!

Pastors who close their churches are surrendering to these forces that want to hide the truth and subject the people to totalitarian rule. They are muzzling the truth and letting the wolves scatter the sheep. But, God has a word to them –

“Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the LORD. Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the LORD.” – Jer. 23:1, 2

And God goes even further –

“I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says the LORD.” – Jer. 23:4

There is a ‘latter Rain’ revival coming and I predict that many of these churches that have nothing but ‘religion’ will lose their sheep to new flocks, flocks that have pastors who teach the whole word of God and love the TRUTH.

Voter_FraudIt is obvious that this election was ripe with fraud: from thousands of dead people voting, illegals voting, mysterious unofficial ballots suddenly appearing, and election monitors being forced to leave or stand so far away from the ballot counting they couldn’t see, to statistical anomalies that are beyond reason. Then when the votes are being challenged, the illegal destruction of thousands of ballots occurring and the refusal to let inspectors see the voting machines all raise suspicions of voter fraud. And in the face of these irregularities, courts refusing to hear the cases just enhances the suspicions of fraud. And it makes one wonder why Republican Representatives and Republican Senators are silent about them? Has the corruption gone so far in our society? I pray not but, it appears to be true.

The Apostle Paul warns us about this coming of the ‘lawless one’

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

The deception in the news media is obvious as well, so much so that you don’t dare listen to the alphabet channels; ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, etc. In the midst of this deception, according to Isaiah, God is wondering “ that there was no intercessor.” 

It is time to open all the churches and call forth the intercessors and prayer warriors. We are about to lose our Republic and the liberties it stands for, prime among them – the freedom to worship freely our God and Savior Jesus Christ. Pastors, stop preaching ‘politically correct’ messages and start calling the church to repent of its sin; sin of lukewarmness, and immorality, and hypocrisy – for church members who confess one thing but live another! And teach the truth, which is the whole word of God. If we do this, just perhaps God will have mercy on us and give us His grace to overcome.

The time of the final harvest of souls is very near when Jesus will thrust in His sickle and reap the earth –

“Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So, He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.” – Rev. 14:14-16
